The Daily Mail says faltering invasion twice in two sentences. They must be afraid once is not enough.

I saw a headline yesterday about Russia threatening arms shipments into Ukraine, but can’t find it back right now.

Putin Vows ‘Consequences’ For Those Who Interfere In Ukraine (DM)

Vladimir Putin today warned his enemies in the West they will face ‘consequences’ if they ‘worsen the situation’ in Ukraine, as the Russian strongman threatened to create ‘waves of migrants’ in Europe. Putin, speaking in front of dozens of rockets at the Vostochny space launch facility in Russia’s Far East, insisted that his faltering invasion of Ukraine would prevail as he warned of world starvation as a result of Western sanctions against Moscow. The Russian President claimed Russia’s economy and financial system withstood the blow from what he called the Western sanctions ‘blitz’ and insisted the move would backfire by driving up prices for essentials such as fertiliser, leading to food shortages and increased migration to the West.

Despite Putin’s faltering invasion, which saw Russian troops retreat from Ukrainian cities and instead focus on the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, the leader said his war effort is going to plan as he vowed Russia would triumph in all of its ‘noble’ war aims. Putin said that ‘common sense should prevail’ and added that the West should ‘come back to reason and make well-balanced decisions without losing its face.’ He argued that new Western restrictions on high-tech exports will encourage Russia to move faster to develop new technologies, opening a ‘new window of opportunities.’ Putin also claimed on Tuesday that the images and footage of dead bodies strewn across the Ukrainian town of Bucha were fake, parroting the same lines his spokesman gave earlier this week. He compared the accusations to those concerning the use of chemical weapons by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. ‘It’s the same kind of fake in Bucha,’ Putin said.

[..] An unconfirmed video uploaded last night appears to show two Russian coastal defence missile systems moving along a road on the Russian side of the border that leads to Helsinki. The missile systems, which were seen driving past a sign to the Finnish capital, are thought to be the K-300P Bastion-P mobile coastal defence system, designed to take out surface ships up to and including aircraft carrier battle groups. The Russian deployment comes as Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said she expects her government ‘will end the discussion before midsummer’ on whether to apply for NATO membership.

Recent opinions polls by a Finnish market research company put 84% of Finns as viewing Russia as a ‘significant military threat’, up by 25% on last year. In response, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov euphemistically warned the move would ‘not improve’ the security situation in Europe, and Moscow lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov added more bluntly it would mean ‘the destruction of the country’. ‘We have repeatedly said that the alliance remains a tool geared towards confrontation and its further expansion will not bring stability to the European continent,’ Peskov said.

“..the deepening of the continuous and unlimited reproduction and expansion of the american military empire is a reality that became even clearer after the first russian tank entered ukrainian territory..”

The Fog of War and the Global Paradigm Shift (Vianna)

With ukrainian president Vladimir Zelensky being a kind of spokesman of a script written in Washington – or, who knows, Hollywood – the repeated attacks on european leaders who have worked so hard for the normalization of Russian-European Union relations, as is the case of the recent attack on former chancellor Angela Merkel, indicate that the instruments of fourth generation war, already used by the United States in other regions of the planet, are intensifying in the heart of the western alliance. Not only the maintenance, but the deepening of the continuous and unlimited reproduction and expansion of the american military empire is a reality that became even clearer after the first russian tank entered ukrainian territory, even if this meant destabilizing, or even destroying, old and loyal allies.

In this sense, the old premise carried by many scholars of the “realist” school of International Relations, as well as by great thinkers of the World System, that the concentration of global power in a single state would be an essential condition for lasting world peace, falls to the ground. The “Hyperpower Paradox” is confirmed as a slap in the face of the enormous theoretical consensus developed since the mid-1970s of the last century. In other words, since the first minute of the US bombing of Iraq in 1991, which followed the 48 military interventions of the 1990s, and the 24 interventions in the first two decades of the 21st century – which in turn culminated in 100,000 bombings around the globe – the International System is immersed in a somber process of permanent, or infinite, war, which contradicts the kantian utopia of perpetual peace reflected in the idea of hegemonic stability.

Thus, it was a mistake to consider that the unipolar global power that emerged with the victory in the cold war could exercise its hegemony in the name of peace and global stability, assuming, therefore, a responsible leadership and in the name of a great global governance. On the contrary, what we have witnessed over the last 30 years is the escalation of interstate competition, with the reaction of other states to the insane and inconsequential process of power expansion carried out by the American military empire.

How To Wrest War Reparations From Russia: Ukraine, West Count The Ways (JTN)

Seven weeks into a war that seems poised to escalate before it ends, Kyiv and Western leaders are calculating ways to exact reparations from an aggressive Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Feb. 24 launched an attack into Ukraine, pummeling cities and wreaking havoc on lives and infrastructure. Aside from the intangible damages to society, experts have estimated that the damages range from $700 billion to a projected $1.5 trillion. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told Moscow last month that he expected that country to pay for the damages. “We will restore every house, every street, every city,” Zelensky said in a video address. “You will reimburse us for everything you did against our state, against every Ukrainian, in full.”

Although Putin most likely would dismiss such claims, the West may already have the means to earmark reparations on Ukraine’s behalf, one analyst said. “In the past, reparations have been paid after hostilities ended by the aggressor country — that was Germany in the first two world wars,” according to the Brookings Institution’s Robert Litan. “Now, the fact that many countries already have control over Russia’s holdings of foreign currency means that, in effect, reparations for the Ukrainian invasion have been pre-funded by Russia itself,” Litan wrote in a March essay. Significant sums of Russian money have been frozen by governments around the world. But funneling it toward reparations may present a number of hurdles, others say.

European officials reportedly are considering whether the seized property of Russian oligarchs can be applied toward rebuilding Ukraine. A more lucrative move would be to confiscate Russia’s central bank reserves that are held in foreign banks. But such a move would be complex in light of legal constraints, one analyst said. “There is international law that puts property of foreign states under special protection,” according to Stephan Schill, a professor at the Amsterdam Center for International Law.

Zelenskyy’s Steinmeier Snub Triggers Backlash In Germany (Pol.eu)

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s decision to declare his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier unwelcome in Kyiv has triggered dismay among German politicians and warnings that the move may backfire. Steinmeier, seen as a symbol of Germany’s soft line on Moscow before the invasion of Ukraine, had planned to visit Kyiv on Wednesday along with the presidents of Poland and the three Baltic states, but the German president had to cancel his trip — which had not been made public in advance for security reasons — after Kyiv indicated that he was not welcome. The move was a humiliation for Steinmeier — a former foreign minister closely associated with Berlin’s previous policy of pursuing close economic and diplomatic ties with Russia — but also for Germany as a whole.

As federal president, Steinmeier is the highest-ranking representative of the German state. The fact that Zelenskyy communicated his decision just hours before Steinmeier’s planned secret trip, after days of preparation between Berlin and Kyiv, and that Ukrainian officials leaked the snub to German tabloid Bild, deepened the diplomatic insult for Germany. Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he found Zelenskyy‘s decision not to welcome Steinmeier “irritating.” Reacting to a Ukrainian invitation for him to visit Ukraine himself, Scholz told RBB24 radio he was not planning any such trip in the near future. The chancellor argued that he had been to Kyiv just about a week before the outbreak of the war and that he was speaking regularly to Zelenskyy on the phone, most recently on Sunday.

In an official statement, a government spokesperson voiced a sober reaction to the Ukrainian move, saying that Steinmeier “has taken and is taking a very clear and unambiguous position on the side of Ukraine,” and stressed that he had also directly appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty. Others were more critical. “While understanding the existential threat to Ukraine posed by the Russian invasion, I expect Ukrainian representatives to adhere to a minimum level of diplomatic manners and not unduly interfere in our country’s domestic politics,” said Rolf Mützenich, the parliamentary group leader of the center-left Social Democrats, the party of both Steinmeier and Scholz.

“Goal (A) is having all countries being able to gradually repatriate their gold bullion now theoretically in custody at the Bank of England..”

Good luck with that. Theoretically.

Bretton Woods III: “Suicidal Europe Saved By Gold?“ (Vilches)

In a nutshell, right now our Western Graeco-Roman Judeo-Christian millenary culture needs to rise to the occasion. Dear “Europa”, as the cradle of Western civilization that you are supposed to be, please be advised that this is it. Otherwise, not just our culture but also our species could soon become functionally disabled. Or, in financial terms which technocrats enjoy so much, we can soon become a forever ´non-performing asset´ a.k.a. wasted garbage. Accordingly, this draft Plan attempts to AVOID the UK-EU Armageddon that “NATO´s internal gold war” would necessarily bring about. And also please be advised that our success would be the only way at hand to prove the Davos agenda wrong which actually was what brought us to the situation we are now facing in the first place.

The basic philosophy behind this über urgent project is probably best represented by a photograph taken at Verdun in 1984 wherein French President Francois Mitterand and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl are firmly holding each other´s hand like two school children both looking straight at the camera for the whole world to see. These two most serious, intelligent and very powerfull elderly statesmen were silently screaming something instantly understood by everyone after French and Germans had killed, maimed and hatefully destroyed each other for decades. Say no more.

Lacking public domain data, let´s accept a spitball yet trustworthy “back-of-the-envelope” guesstimate of 5000 tons of gold deposited by EU members for custody at the Bank of England. So, if such tonnage were now physically available at today´s ultra low central-bank-manipulated prices it would pay for all of Europe´s oil & gas imports for one full year …while if gold were priced at USD $ 5000 per ounce Troy it would pay for 2,5 years of Europe´s oil & gas needs… And if gold were priced at USD $ 50,000 per ounce (something quite possible if genuine price-discovery mechanisms were set free without central bank manipulation…) those 5000 metric tons of gold at current oil & gas prices (which could be lower due to deflationary pressures) would pay for 25 years of EU´s fuel needs, or more.

2022 goals of The Plan, Goal (A) is having all countries being able to gradually repatriate their gold bullion now theoretically in custody at the Bank of England if they so desire with a serious and foreseeable schedule in place to be unequivocally complied with. Goal (B) being able to sell such gold bullion even with buyers taking physical delivery but always at a genuine market price most probably very much higher than today´s fully manipulated quotes thru central bank daily interventions. s

“No one in their right mind would want the WHO in charge of a global pandemic.”

“On Sunday, it launched a so-called ‘public participation process’ and invited video and written submissions. They gave two days to make video submissions, and written submissions must be received by 5pm CEST today. That’s five days for the world’s citizens to have their voices heard. Five days – and no public announcement.”

My Video Call With The WHO This Morning (Tess Lawrie)

As you may know, the WHO is proposing a global pandemic agreement that would give it undemocratic rights over every participating nation and its citizens. Put simply, in the event of a ‘pandemic’, the WHO’s constitution would replace every country’s constitution. Whether your country’s elected government would agree or not, the WHO could impose lockdowns, testing regimes, enforce medical interventions, dictate all public health practice, and much more. Throughout this pandemic, the WHO has demonstrated its incompetence, dishonesty and corruption. It has withheld safe and established older medicines, ignored the experiences of frontline doctors, disregarded evidence from low, middle and high-income countries, and taken no heed of the values and preferences of people affected by their recommendations.


It has ignored the huge numbers of adverse reactions on its own database and has failed to issue warnings about the gene-based vaccines. It has also advertised that the mRNA vaccines are as safe as normal vaccines – and this is simply not the case. No one in their right mind would want the WHO in charge of a global pandemic. And yet, that’s precisely what it is proposing with its global pandemic treaty. The World Council for Health wrote a response to this a while back and has been watching developments closely. Well, this week the WHO pulled a fast one on the world. On Sunday, it launched a so-called ‘public participation process’ and invited video and written submissions. They gave two days to make video submissions, and written submissions must be received by 5pm CEST today. That’s five days for the world’s citizens to have their voices heard. Five days – and no public announcement. If you’re angry, you have every right to be.

Full portrait of the world’s biggest lobbying enterprise.

The Anatomy of Big Pharma’s Political Reach (CHD)

Pfizer has outspent its peers in six of the last eight election cycles, coughing up almost $9.7 million. During the 2016 election, pharmaceutical companies gave more than $7 million to 97 senators at an average of $75,000 per member. They also contributed $6.3 million to president Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. The question is: what did big pharma get in return? To truly grasp big pharma’s power, you need to understand how The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) works. ALEC, which was founded in 1973 by conservative activists working on Ronald Reagan’s campaign, is a super secretive pay-to-play operation where corporate lobbyists – including in the pharma sector – hold confidential meetings about “model” bills. A large portion of these bills is eventually approved and become law.

A rundown of ALEC’s greatest hits will tell you everything you need to know about the council’s motives and priorities. In 1995, ALEC promoted a bill that restricts consumers’ rights to sue for damages resulting from taking a particular medication. They also endorsed the Statute of Limitation Reduction Act, which put a time limit on when someone could sue after a medication-induced injury or death. Over the years, ALEC has promoted many other pharma-friendly bills that would: weaken the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversight of new drugs and therapies, limit FDA authority over drug advertising, and oppose regulations on financial incentives for doctors to prescribe specific drugs. But what makes these ALEC collaborations feel particularly problematic is that there’s little transparency — all of this happens behind closed doors.

Congressional leaders and other committee members involved in ALEC aren’t required to publish any records of their meetings and other communications with pharma lobbyists, and the roster of ALEC members is completely confidential. All we know is that in 2020, more than two-thirds of Congress — 72 senators and 302 House of Representatives members — cashed a campaign check from a pharma company. The public typically relies on an endorsement from government agencies to help them decide whether or not a new drug, vaccine or medical device is safe and effective. And those agencies, like the FDA, count on clinical research. As already established, big pharma is notorious for getting its hooks into influential government officials.

Here’s another sobering truth: The majority of scientific research is paid for by the pharmaceutical companies. When the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) published 73 studies of new drugs over the course of a single year, they found that a staggering 82% of them had been funded by the pharmaceutical company selling the product, 68% had authors who were employees of that company and 50% had lead researchers who accepted money from a drug company. According to 2013 research conducted at the University of Arizona College of Law, even when pharma companies aren’t directly funding the research, company stockholders, consultants, directors and officers are almost always involved in conducting them.

“Though myocarditis gets the most notoriety, the entire circulatory system is under attack..”

C19 “Vaccine” – The Cause Of Causes (CdC)

The official Massachusetts database of death certificates contains proof that C19 “vaccines” killed thousands of people in Massachusetts in 2021. This article details a forensic journey in a one-of-a-kind, brute-force, pedestrian, forensic analysis of the official Massachusetts government data to discover what happened and is happening in a population of ~ 6.9 million people at the fore of C19 “science.” Massachusetts is a leading medical and pharmaceutical technology exporter to the world. Some leaders say it is a model for C19 response planning. The truth is that Massachusetts is a model for fraud on the people.

As demonstrated in particularity below, there was a short pandemic of respiratory deaths in 2020. Then, in the year of injections en masse, deaths switched to mainly circulatory system deaths. Something is attacking the circulatory systems of citizens of Massachusetts. Three main events are initially depicted: a pandemic, an extremely attenuated second wave of disease no longer a pandemic, and a nearly steady-state excess death anomaly in the second half of 2021 (likely began around February 2021, but was obscured by lower than normal deaths of 85+yo’s due to culling from C19 in spring 2020).

Investigation of the anomaly indicates that excess deaths are circulatory system involved, also known and documented in the C19 vaccine trial data. Though myocarditis gets the most notoriety, the entire circulatory system is under attack. Hereinafter, the C19 “vaccine” will be called “gene modification” because it is a more accurate descriptor of the biological injectable product. Industry and government chose “vaccine” because it is more psychologically acceptable to consumers. “Vaccine” has product-class recognition and reputation. Ergo, the definition of “vaccine” was changed in 2020 to accommodate the inclusion of C19 gene modification into this product-class. Lawsuits based on this issue of “definition” are pending.

“Time is of the essence, as the FDA is expected to authorize vaccines for children as young as six months old..”

GOP Lawmakers Demand FDA Publish Covid Vaccine Safety And Efficacy Data (JTN)

Two months after the CDC acknowledged hiding the vast majority of its COVID-19 data, partly to protect the reputation of vaccines, the FDA is under pressure to release its current and future safety and efficacy data on COVID vaccines and therapeutics. “The fact that the data in the FDA’s possession has remained behind an FDA firewall for more than 18 months is appalling,” Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) wrote to Commissioner Robert Califf, noting the agency unsuccessfully asked a court to dribble out Pfizer vaccine data over 55-75 years. Nine House GOP colleagues joined Posey’s April 11 letter, including Kentucky’s Thomas Massie, the leading libertarian in the caucus, and Alabama’s Mo Brooks, who sponsored a bill to defund vaccine mandates.

In light of mandates and liability shields for manufacturers, “[n]othing is more important to physicians, parents, patients, public health officials and elected officials than having access to as much information as possible when evaluating immediate and long-term responses to the pandemic,” the letter says. The House Republicans want the agency to “immediately” release safety and efficacy data for COVID products granted emergency use authorization (EUA) and full approval, and ongoing publication of data within 14 days of receipt by the FDA. It’s already requiring manufacturers to submit most of this information “in redacted and releasable form” and “should have been preparing to immediately release data once licensure was granted” to enable “rigorous independent review,” they said.

[..] The responses of public health agencies to Posey’s previous letters on COVID products and authorization, going back to fall 2020, were “not serious,” Posey spokesperson George Cecala told Just the News. He shared Posey letters calling attention to a British Medical Journal investigation of a Pfizer contractor’s trial practices and a 2021 British study reporting rare polyethylene glycol-induced anaphylaxis from the coating around the vaccine. The Science Committee member also sponsored a bill to establish a COVID commission. Time is of the essence, as the FDA is expected to authorize vaccines for children as young as six months old, Cecala said. Pfizer data showed 2-4 year-olds received no benefit from two doses, but the FDA asked for an EUA application while it tests a third dose.

When the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created in the 1980s, “it was regularly understood that it would be a small percentage of people” who suffered, Cecala said. Nobody thought it was a “conspiracy theory,” which is how COVID vaccine injury is portrayed. The feds haven’t used vaccine safety systems “optimally” since the pandemic’s onset, said epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff, who was removed from the CDC’s COVID Vaccine Safety Technical Work Group for criticizing its “pause” in Johnson & Johnson vaccine distribution. The well-known Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System lacks basic health information that can determine “whether the [COVID] vaccine was responsible” for reported side effects, the former Harvard Medical School professor wrote in a Brownstone Institute essay Monday.

The Horrible, Terrible, Bad, Bad Results of CNBC’s Biden Performance Poll (CTH)

CNBC commissioned a poll by Hart research and associates, a friendly outfit for the left. Unfortunately, that means CNBC then needed to tell everyone what the results were. That task fell to CNBC’s Steve Liesman; an appropriate name given the task at hand. The irony doubles when you remember this was the same CNBC pundit who refused to accept the horrible economic data that began surfacing last fall. There was even a public broadcast where Liesman said the BLS statistics had to be wrong, because the results were so horrible. A few months later, and here he is explaining how the country now feels about Joe Biden.

(CNBC) – […] The pessimism is clearly dragging on Americans’ opinions of President Joe Biden. In fact, nothing looks to be working in the Biden presidency from the public’s viewpoint. The president’s approval rating sank to a new low of just 38%, with 53% disapproving. Biden’s -15% net approval rating is measurably worse than his -9% approval in the CNBC December survey. What’s more, his approval rating on the economy dropped for a fourth straight survey to just 35%, with 60% disapproving, putting the president a deep 25 points underwater.

Annual Wholesale Inflation Rises 11.2%, Mirroring Record CPI Numbers (JTN)

Wholesale prices in March increased by 11.2%, compared to 12 months earlier, the Labor Department said Wednesday. The report also show the prices increased 1.1% from February to March. The newly released numbers follow the agency saying Tuesday the price of consumer goods in March increased by 8.5%, compared to the same time last year, making the Consumer Price Index’s so-called “annualized rate” the highest since December1981. The wholesale numbers, officially the Producer Price Index, measures the price of goods and services that businesses pay one other. The recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia, a global energy provider, has resulted in soaring fuel prices, which were a major fact in the wholesale and consumer inflation.


Another factor continues to be COVID-19-related supply chain problems, with some economists also arguing the federal government’s ongoing fiscal response to the pandemic, particularly the infusion of trillions of dollars into the economy, is another major factor. Hoover Institution economist John H. Cochrane wrote in a beginning-of-year message that reads: “In response to the disruptions of COVID-19, the U.S. government created about $3 trillion of new bank reserves, equivalent to cash, and sent checks to people and businesses. Mechanically, the Treasury issued $3 trillion of new debt, which the Fed quickly bought in return for $3 trillion of new reserves. “The Treasury sent out checks, transferring the reserves to people’s banks. The Treasury then borrowed another $2 trillion or so, and sent more checks. Overall, federal debt rose nearly 30 percent. Is it at all a surprise that a year later inflation breaks out?”

“In February 2017, Hunter Biden flew to Miami to meet with CEFC chairman Ye Jianming. There, Ye offered Hunter a three-year deal at $10 million per year for “introductions alone.”

Hunter Biden Mixing Business Affairs With Hunger Charity (JTN)

With his father’s eight-year tenure as Barack Obama’s vice president waning, Hunter Biden received a remarkable overture in 2015: One of China’s richest businessmen wanted to make a sizable donation to the World Food Program USA (WFP USA), which was led by the VP’s son. WFP USA is a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and building U.S. support for the World Food Program, the United Nations organization that fights global hunger. But soon, memos gathered by the FBI show, the charitable discussions evolved into an expanding relationship between Hunter Biden and Chinese energy giant CEFC to include business deals that would eventually reap the Biden family millions of dollars.

“CEFC China is very interested in exploring humanitarian initiatives of mutual interest to the World Food Program USA and discussing investment opportunities with Burnham,” an email received and then forwarded by Hunter Biden in October 2015 stated. Burnham was one of the many firms through which Hunter Biden and his partners like Devon Archer scored large investments. The story of CEFC’s dual pitch for charity and business opportunities is documented in emails and memos stored on the notorious laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop. The device was eventually turned over in December 2019 to the FBI, which is leading an investigation into the taxes, finances and foreign business dealings of the president’s son.

The FBI’s former intelligence chief said the Chinese overture to Hunter Biden fits the classic pattern of a foreign influence operation, much like was seen with Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell a few years ago. “First, you have to understand that China does not donate to American led charities because they are altruistic,” explained former FBI Assistant Director for Intelligence Kevin Brock. “And Chinese intelligence operatives like Christine Fang don’t cozy up to Rep. Eric Swalwell because he’s a fun guy to be around. Chinese intelligence does what it does in order to steal information and influence American policy makers.”

[..] In February 2017, Hunter Biden flew to Miami to meet with CEFC chairman Ye Jianming. There, Ye offered Hunter a three-year deal at $10 million per year for “introductions alone.” To close the deal, Ye gave Hunter a three-carat diamond valued at over $80,000, memos show. When asked about this fateful meeting in Miami, Hunter Biden told the New Yorker’s Adam Entous he was there for WFP USA charity work when the meeting unexpectedly “turned to business opportunities.” Hunter Biden, however, went there with two other business partners who had been intimately involved in pitching private business deals to CEFC. Over the next year, the CEFC money began to flow, and Hunter Biden reaped nearly $6 million from the Chinese energy giant.

My Personal Experience in Twitter’s Assault on Free Speech (Scott Ritter)

By the evening of April 5, I believed I had more than enough information to try and put forth a counter-narrative to the one being pushed by The New York Times and President Biden, namely that Ukraine, not Russia, was responsible for the Bucha killings. “The Ukrainian National Police,” I composed on Twitter, “committed numerous crimes against humanity in Bucha.” Drawing on the precedent of the Nuremburg International Military Tribunal established at the end of the Second World War to prosecute Nazi war criminals, I then went on to state that “Biden, in seeking to shift blame for the Bucha murders onto Russia, is guilty of aiding and abetting these crimes. Congratulations, America…we’ve created yet another Presidential war criminal!” At 9:42 p.m. I hit “send,” and the deed was done.

As far as Twitter metrics go, this tweet didn’t do so badly—5,976 “likes”, 2,815 retweets, and 321 comments, for a total of what Twitter calls 265,098 “impressions.” It also got me suspended from Twitter. The next day, April 6, at 11:57 a.m., I received an email from Twitter Support, notifying me that my account, @RealScottRitter, “had been suspended for violating Twitter Rules,” specifically for violating rules against abuse and harassment. “You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.” I re-read the tweet in question, wondering how anyone could possibly interpret its contents as violating the rules cited by Twitter Support. Who had I harassed or incited others to harass?

I followed the procedures to appeal the suspension and went on with my daily routine—minus the part where I interact with the people I follow, and those who followed me, on Twitter. My suspension caught the eye of several people who follow my tweeting activity. Several of these people reached out to inquire as to what happened and were as confused as I was over the grounds cited by Twitter for the suspension. The end result of this was a very heart-warming grass-roots protest against the Twitter decision to suspend my account of such intensity, that one had to believe it caught the eye of one of the Twitter bureaucrats tasked with monitoring the temperature in Twitterdom. On April 6, at 11:54 p.m., I received an email from Twitter Support notifying me that “After further review, we have unsuspended your account as it does not appear to be in violation of the Twitter Rules.”

Life, it seemed, could return to normal, with me safely ensconced in my overstuffed arm chair, frantically working the controls to the television remote while monitoring my all-important, and recently restored, Twitter account. Nothing good, however, lasts forever.

    Article review again, aka outrage:

    “Understanding Vladimir Putin, the man who fooled the world. …The Russian president has always shown us exactly who he is.” — The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/apr/09/understanding-vladimir-putin-the-man-who-fooled-the-world

    The Guardian, putting two contradicting sentences together in every paragraph. So he fooled you by telling you who he is? And what is this “us” and “we” stuff? I’m sorry you’re a moron, Mr. Guardian Writer, but the rest of us aren’t illiterate inbreds from Eton.

    The article immediately launches into how conservatives and populists worldwide are hateful Russian Putin-Nazis, Trump, Salvini, and Farage are Putin-puppets, oh and also that everyone hates Liberals like Hillary Clinton. And that Bill Clinton also loved Putin. Mixed messages, much?

    Other quotes: “ The collapse of the Soviet system in 1991 had allowed for the emergence of democracy and freedom of speech.” Yeah, that 10-year life expectancy drop, having only crooked oligarchs to vote for, and being shot by local mafia warlords if you spoke out were totally the definition of “democracy” and “free speech.” What’s not to like? Why would they ever be mad or distrustful of NATO and the United States?

    In 2007 Putin “accused the US of an “almost uncontained hyper use of force – military force – in international relations, force that is plunging the world into an abyss of permanent conflicts”. Yeah, I mean, we started 5 wars and killed a million people for sport, our soldiers convicted of open war crimes, many more covered up, created centuries of birth defects with depleted uranium, McCain said we wanted and intended a “100 year war” and were openly saying we would attack Iran. Where did he get the crazy idea that there was “Military force” of “permanent conflict”? That’s just ridiculous.

    Not to have a single paragraph without a face-ripping lie they add: “[Russian] meddling in the US presidential election of 2016.” You mean the meddling Obama said didn’t happen and Mueller couldn’t find? That the DHS didn’t follow on, no Congressional committee nor two impeachments couldn’t point to? That “meddling”?

    Next lie: “It is argued repeatedly in Moscow that the expansion of Nato to take in countries of the former Soviet empire (including Poland and the Baltic states) was a direct contradiction of promises made after the end of the cold war.” Um, because that’s completely true and has now been begrudgingly admitted by the NY Times and probably The Guardian as well? Is that why it’s “Argued”?

    the west’s promotion of democracy has posed a direct threat to Putin’s own political and personal survival.” Why? Putin is the openly elected and very popular leader. Democracy couldn’t possibly be better or more suited for him. Putin: 80% approval. Biden: 40% BoJo: 0%, but they like the other candidates less.

    “Putin was particularly inclined to see the CIA as pulling the strings.” Was that because Nuland was caught on saying “F the EU” “We’ll put in our boy Yats”, then did? In violent coup and place of “democratically-elected” leader Yanukovich? Why would he think the CIA/US was involved when they said they were involved, say it today, it’s reported in Wikipedia, and are still involved today to the tune of multi-billion dollars? So crazy that Putin! Where does he get such ideas that were reported for decades right here in “The Guardian”?

    The U.S. never-ever does such things! …Which is why the whole next paragraph discusses how the U.S. prosecuted an illegal war of aggression on Gaddafi and removed him in an illegal coup that has plunged Africa’s richest, most literate nation into violent anarchy with open slave markets. Where does Putin get these ideas we violently overthrow governments? From The Guardian’s daily reports that we overthrow governments? Everywhere, all the time? So cra-cray. Conspiracy, I’m sure.

    Next paragraph lie: “Putin’s response was to dramatically raise the stakes, by crossing the line into the use of military force.” You mean unlike the “crossing the line” you just described of the U.S. in Serbia, Iraq, Syria, and Libya? Because we do/don’t do such things. That are reported-and-then-also-denied by The Guardian.

    “The unofficial goal of western policy is clearly to force Putin from power.” The Guardian says we are doing regime change in Russia. After reporting all the other dozen regime changes since Clinton. But Putin is unhinged paranoia that we are after Russia and want to do regime change, which is crazy, because we’re doing regime change. You know, the one we’re not doing. That we’re discussing doing, right now.

    Gideon Rachman then discusses the options for such (illegal) regime change at length, neglecting to mention that would be a violation of the UN and International Law and also a violation of everything he’s said in the whole article about Putin being crazy and nobody’s out to get Russia. He is listed as The Guardian’s top foreign affairs expert. A real schmartz, law-abiding fellow and all-around great guy.

    The Week: “Could Putin Really Face a War Crimes Trial?” https://theweek.com/russo-ukrainian-war/1012348/could-putin-really-face-a-war-crimes-trial

    Look Jimmy! More of the world’s dumbest people! Point and stare. I’ll spare you. “The Week” does not appear interested in adjudicating 20 years of America’s ceaseless war crimes, resulting in the pointless murder of perhaps +6 million people. Most recently the U.S. for breaking 3 treaties, sending $3B to an open war zone, and personally funding unsecured bioweapons labs.

    If they’re proud of it and it’s all legal, I’m sure they won’t mind when we arrest them and they make their case in court.

    “Russia threatening arms shipments into Ukraine,”

    Yes, they reminded the West that any weapons are “legitimate targets.” After blowing up all the new S-300 batteries that never got out of the hanger. That must have been expensive!

    “Despite Putin’s faltering invasion,” …Which captured yet another Ukrainian city today… Look ma! It’s the English: capturing cities is “losing” to them!

    “Moscow lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov added more bluntly it would mean ‘the destruction of the country’.”

    What they mean by that is NATO will immediately try to put 1st strike nukes in Finland. Then Finland becomes a 1st strike target for Russia. Then when NATO tries what they did in Ukraine, what little of Finland that exists will cease to exist, like their only city, Helsinki. No one’s kidding here. The math and consequences are very simple, even simple enough for crayon munchers to understand.

    the concentration of global power in a single state would be an essential condition for lasting world peace,”

    Speaking of crayon munchers, this has to be the dumbest argument since “We needed to destroy the village to save the village”. If you have one power – take Rome for example – then you have no alternative, no competition to embarrass you, and no pressure release. Then when you march around stealing from people, the war is merely “Civil” instead of “National.” Same war, probably worse. Their argument rests on something like “But we passed a lawr!” …The same law that says you can’t shoot a train full of people, and also aren’t allowed to own that gun in Brooklyn. No one cares about your laws. That you think they care what you say shows that you’re a self-aggrandizing moron who’s never visited the world outside your Safe Space. You know, the $23M security bubble around Zuck, for example. Or the economic and mental bubble around Krugman.

    “How To Wrest War Reparations From” …The American people. By shutting off their food and gas. Bad citizens, bad! Why did you start this war? Now Joe is going to keep killing Americans until Russia stops!

    Putin on Feb. 24 launched an attack into Ukraine, pummeling cities and wreaking havoc on lives and infrastructure.”

    I thought he was stalled out, bogged down, and unsuccessful. But now he was able to pummel and capture cities? Pick one.

    ““You will reimburse us for everything you did against our state, against every Ukrainian, in full.” I am unable to comprehend the level of psychosis and denial to say such things. But: if Ukraine knows they are part of a NATO plan to conquer, cut up, ruin, extract, and utterly destroy Russia, why not? There’s plenty of looting to fund Ukraine! …And in “Psychosis” Ze thinks the Empire of Lies will give them even a little? What is he smoking? The very next thing they would do is destroy and extract Kiev to Fairfax and the Hamptons, down to the last Ukrainian 12-year old girl: his wife and daughter.

    “Funneling it toward reparations may present a number of hurdles,”

    They’re right. They already captured and own this Russian money, and they are already not giving it to Ze. Yet he thinks they will? Like they did Libyan gold?

    “Zelenskyy’s Steinmeier Snub Triggers Backlash in Germany (Pol.eu)”

    I take back my soft spot of Ze. Regardless of why, or the pressures on him, his rhetoric is now murder, genocide, ethnic cleansing. Arrest the opposition parties, arrest anyone “Soft” –which is whoever we say it is. Shoot all collaborators, which may be what happened in Bucha. Stand up for and support the brave and glorious Azov Nazis in their fight against civilians. Bad bad stuff. I’m done. He’s no longer an actor, a cut-out, an innocent. He’s the one saying inform on your friends and family so we can shoot them. Here he is reaching out to control the policies and internal politics of the German State. Tin Pot, by definition.

    “I expect Ukrainian representatives to adhere to a minimum level of diplomatic manners”

    Especially when that state, Germany, has just swallowed cyanide for you. You’re still squawking MOAR!

    “screaming something instantly understood by everyone after French and Germans had killed, maimed and hatefully destroyed each other for decades.”

    To stop Europeans wars. So they immediately started another European war, and are are wildly cheering, funding, and arming it today. …Unless Russia is not in “Europe”? They took all these measures, tried to invent a whole super-nation, a whole new currency, financial, social system. Except the one thing: getting rid of arms and stopping the glorification and support for war. That they cannot do, nor the Americans, adding to an impossible Pentagon budget and already spending more on war in 30 days than they were willing to give for Covid over 2 years.

    Why? “War”. …Vs “Peace”. This is what we fund. This is who we are. This is the truth. We are a death cult that desires war and hates all life and peace, i.e. leaving people alone.

    “Those 5000 metric tons of gold at current oil & gas prices … would pay for 25 years of EU´s fuel needs”

    As soon as England got possession of the gold, they left the EU.

    “the WHO could impose lockdowns, testing regimes, enforce medical interventions, dictate all public health practice, and much more.”

    Them and whose army? You just said, “Whether the elected government agrees or not”. If they don’t agree, whose army and police are the WHO using? You tell them to EBD, “Make Me”, and laugh and go back to making home fireworks in the back shed.

    “GOP Lawmakers Demand FDA Publish Covid Vaccine Safety and Efficacy Data (JTN)”

    Rebublicans. So look at how useless they are and how little they ask. We already have the data that the deaths of those ages – even to 20 – are ZERO. But we walk right around those bodies to find a fail. How about this: arrest them, try them, imprison and or hang them in public square as an example to others not to mass-murder children for profit. Can you hear me now?

    “The Treasury sent out checks, transferring the reserves to people’s banks. The Treasury then borrowed another $2 trillion or so, and sent more checks…”

    But this didn’t cause inflation. Last week’s “Atlantic” article said so. Except for the inflation it, MMT, caused, which appears to be 20% official, and seems likely to 10x that to 20% a MONTH by the end of the year, edging into true hyperinflation.

    The printing only works while people are productive and consent to being robbed. Which gov’t thinks is infinite, having never worked before in their lives. But when you have a “Great Resignation”, no one is working and being productive, therefore there is nothing to rob them of.

    See who this is a problem for? Not the people: the government is the one with the real problem.

    Hunter Biden Mixing Business Affairs with Hunger Charity (JTN)”

    Rather than buying food and ending hunger of their own people in China, they gave that money to a hunger charity of the VP. And that’s not influence peddling, aka “Bribery.” Explain.

    “My Personal Experience in Twitter’s Assault on Free Speech (Scott Ritter)

    He had a short, pleasant interview on Jimmy Dore, where he laid out the more important part, why he was drawing obvious conclusions on the massacre in Bucha. For the people too dumb to listen and with too short an attention span to care: 1) White is the local symbol of Russia. 2) All the people shot 4 days after Russia left were wearing white armbands. That is, they were Russian collaborators. Shot by the Azov Nazis. The End.

    He has more detail, but why bother? Are they saying Russia took Ukrainians, dressed them in Russian clothes, then shot them in order to make it look like Russia shoots their own supporters? What? Not one media outlet has the brainpower to count to “One” and be embarrassed by this.

    Monopoly” is a game that was expressly created to show how in any system created like this (America in 1930), ANY game play will ALWAYS create a monopoly, concentrate power an wealth to a single person, by very nature of the rules. …The very real and actual rules of United States capitalism in 1930. And it has been incredibly instructive to generations of children and adults on that very true point. So the bank by-rules match this perfectly, and I expect the inventor knows it.

    “The consequence is that nobody believes ANYTHING any longer”

    Yes, this is how it’s supposed to go. They don’t want you to believe the lies, really. That’s not important. What they want is to cause STRESS, which leads to obedience to POWER, and the crumbling of all authorities and institutions EXCEPT for raw, naked power. So even when we debunk the lies, here on TAE, on Substack and Rumble, the plan is still working smoothly. There is no way out. Except re-uniting under truth and morality, helping each other.

    We don’t need to take other things apart: Twitter, the GOP; we need to build something else UP. Something that we CAN believe in.

    However, as Tytler, I fear than in history the only thing that can replace the universal lies and failure of man is spirituality, God. Faith. That we will die rather than participate in corruption. These guys won’t even give up their Twitter/Bitcoin trading account to avoid corruption.

    Elon Musk Launches $43 Billion Hostile Takeover Of Twitter (BBG)

    Bret Taylor

    Chairman of the Board,

    I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy.

    However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.

    As a result, I am offering to buy 100% of Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash, a 54% premium over the day before I began investing in Twitter and a 38% premium over the day before my investment was publicly announced. My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder.

    Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it.

    About those pesky fuel price rises,
    In 2020 Russia was the world’s second largest exporter of diesel fuel behind USA, shipping more than 1 million barrels daily. Most of it, some 70%, went to the EU and Turkey. France was the largest importer, followed by Germany and UK. In France some 76% of all road vehicles—cars, trucks—use diesel.The EU diesel demand is far higher than in the US as most cars also use the more economical and efficient diesel fuel. In the first week of April the EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proudly announced new sanctions against Russian energy that would begin with a ban on coal. The EU is the largest importer of Russian coal. Oil and gas she said would follow at a later date. That foolish move will merely boost costs of energy, already at record high, for most of the EU, as it will force oil and gas prices far higher.

    Every citizen is a surveillance camera
    (and they love it.)

    Would you die* whithout the internet?
    Would you die* without food?
    * Of an untimely death.

    The need to pose these questions explains why the current civilization has reached a demented phase; like all other insanities, it either won’t be remembered or it will be disparaged because very few things will stand and, from those, most will be dangerous sites: toxic swamps/lagoons where cities once stood; radioactive deserts where nuclear power plants existed.

    What is civilization?
    – Civilization is the natural stockpiling of artifacts, between the limits of the commensurable scale available to humans at any given time (when humans only counted by the fingers, we had tribes; counting supported by papyrus/parchment/paper and ink, we had regional empires; using computers to count gave us global corporations.)
    This stockpiling is natural because it represents the corollary of the human brain imperative to amass as many artifacts as it can, either or both internal/immaterial artifacts (“ideas”) and external/material artifacts (“goods”).
    (We are also very keen on stockpiling “ideas” under a material guise; e.g., books, libraries, data farms.)

    Is civilization desirable?
    – From a rational standpoint, natural things can’t be desirable or undesirable, good or bad: they are unavoidable.
    Oswald Spengler is right: cultures (civilizations) are akin to organisms. They follow Nature’s imperatives: birth, growth, stability/production, decay, death. Current civilization is on its death throes: trying to stop or revert it is like going on a quest for fool’s gold (or any kind of gold, for that matter). Perhaps the wisest choice would be to elevate yourself to the position of the interested, compassionate observer.
    Savitri Devi is also right: three kind of men – Men In Time; Men Against Time; Men Above Time. If, by natural disposition, you don’t feel inclined to be a man above time then, in these crazy times of ours, IMHO, it is preferable to be a man against time.
    Vladimir Putin is a man against time (though having my sympathies, his fate is sealed); western and “westernized” leaderships are people (I should say ‘freaks’) in time: they are insane – they will go down in shame.

    “As you may know, the WHO is proposing a global pandemic agreement that would give it undemocratic rights over every participating nation and its citizens. Put simply, in the event of a ‘pandemic’, the WHO’s constitution would replace every country’s constitution.”

    No one seems to be pointing out the obvious–that the proposal on the table is to put in charge of the world an agency whose single biggest funding source is not UN member governments, but the Gates Foundation, which is not only an NGO, but one who has very obvious conflicts of interest.

    I know, all our governments and their agencies are already pretty much captive to lobbyists and other corrupt influences. But do we have to say the quiet part out loud with this outrageous proposal?

    France. …. I still can’t really believe Marine is aiming to win. She threw the last election at the one debate, why exactly heh.

    Plus, the ‘far right’ stigma (nonsense but there you go) still sticks.

    Historically, it was foxy Mitterand who set up Le Pen Père in a trad. conserv. nationalist. anti-foreignor party, to drain off the votes of the ‘discontents’ ensuring that the two main parties, today Socialistes and Républicains would always be in power, alternate, exchanging, ostensibly, nasty quarrels and sub rosa, deals and favors.

    That schema has now broken down, with the two trad. parties toasted, and, besides Marine, all candidates individuals with ‘made up’ parties behind them. (The ‘parties’ are necessary because F campaign legislation, rules, media exposure, all depend on identification of a ‘party’ – a random oligarch doesn’t qualify..)

    If one crunches various nos. the election is very close.

    Mélenchon (left, a split off of the socialists, an old-style pol with a worked-out program..) got 22 % and his electorate is lost in the wilderness, a reasonable expectation is that 1/3 will abstain, 1/3 > Macron and 1/3 > Marine, i.e. these voters have no effect on the end result at all. If France had a different voting system, e.g. rank ordering, or limiting first round candidates to 3 or 4, Mélenchon would have been the next pres. of France!

    One indicative way for predicting election outcomes is to look at the expat vote. (if properly counted, funnily enough it often is..)

    Expats always support ‘the most popular person’ aka usually ‘the winner’ -> they have a far-off analytical view and join, embrace, the ‘winner’s’ independent of local pressure, etc. Like children, they can smell the atmosphere. Doesn’t work for all elections, yet is highly informative for some.

    Who in the USA today has heard of, and might care about and vote for, Poutou or Jadot? All the details, distractions, are swept away!

    2022, the total F expat vote, first round:

    Macron 45%, Mélenchon 22%,

    Zenmour 9% => Branded “Right,” MSM media figure, a rabidly anti-Muslim Berber Jew, running on a mad-cap Reconquista ticket, he has advised his voters to support Marine

    Jadot 8% => “Environmentalist”, ex-Greenpeace activist, chosen by “the Greens”

    Le Pen 5%

    see, Le Monde (2017 election) https://bit.ly/3EkJALD,

    F. Gov. site (2022 election) https://bit.ly/3E975qU

    No, she can’t win. Of course the whole election might be rigged, I had my doubts about the previous 2017 one, funnily enough the scores this time seem more realistic, more in line with ‘life’, sentiment on the ground, and many (properly done) polls.

    On the ground a Marine win would have halted serious social strife, rumbling civil war, waiting to see what transpires. A sort of holding position.

    This overlays with my other favorite cycle Birth/Growth/Decay/Death. No skipping steps on this cycle when it comes to the physical body/physical universe. However, ideas and beliefs are a different matter (ha ha not matter!) and what happens if we apply this cycle in order to re-order and destroy our manifestations?

    Oh, Marilyn ~ A prescient warning concerning soulless worship of the “iconic” image, the evolving illusion of vapid deity à la celebrity worship…

    Influencers indeed 😕

    Anyways, last night I had a chance to re-watch “Don’t Look Up” again, as my wife & I held vigil over her mother during her caretaker’s vacation (My wife normally only overseas the 24/7 care, logistics involved, but is currently hands on)…

    On second watching I was able to detach from the emotional froth & perceived the movie as a microcosm of the modern horrors arising from legacy & social media NPD Mass Psychosis.

    Instead of seeing the Streep POTUS et al. as a parody of Trump + Biden, I saw the emotive “performance” as an unwitting indictment of the entire District of Clowns’ political CULTure & the sheeple’s misplaced trust in “celebrity”, which has completely replaced the wisdom of humble, spiritually-based leadership.

    The “real reality” of the Bush, Clinton, Obama/Biden crime families et al., manifesting as a stranglehold on the course of modern humanity, is that it has morphed “real reality” into a dystopian VR where not only is “the law is in my mouth”, but right vs. wrong, good vs. evil, is defined by whatever lies are acceptable to the majority, indeed whatever psyops/propaganda are tolerated by legacy/social media at large…

    Under the illusion/delusion of “leadership”, the very nature of life & death has become a child’s game of Winners & Losers game, like a fake universe where consequences are only determined in demented popularity contests.

    The only Way we…”can replace the universal lies and failure of man is spirituality, God. Faith”. LOVE.

    L.A. Mayor Garcetti says farewell with next role unclear

    Even after two men were found dead in his California apartment, Ed Buck did not stop injecting gay men with walloping doses of methamphetamine.

    A federal judge on Thursday sentenced him to 30 years in prison in the deaths of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean. Another man, Dane Brown, was repeatedly injected by Buck but survived and his harrowing account of being revived twice finally led to Buck’s arrest in 2019.

    Buck, 67, a big dollar donor to Democratic, LGBTQ and animal rights causes, appeared in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles for providing fatal doses of drugs, operating a drug den and enticing men to travel for prostitution. He was convicted last summer.

    Judge Christina A. Snyder said the sentencing decision was difficult because she had to balance the good Buck did in his life with the “horrific crimes” that she called “more than just an accident.”

    A SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY: SYSTEMIC COLLAPSE AND PANDEMIC SIMULATION

    It seems to provide the financial reasons for what has happened the last few years.

    The money beast needs to eat and it is currently feeding on the masses.

    A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Systemic Collapse and Pandemic Simulation

    By April 2020, a third of the world’s population was living under medical martial law. But there was a light at the end of the tunnel: trusted pharmaceutical companies were developing “safe and effective” vaccines that would stop the spread of the dreaded virus and end the pandemic. Or so we were told.

    The clock was ticking – and Big Pharma needed lots of money in order to expedite the creation of a miracle drug. In the United States, the Trump administration launched Operation Warp Speed, a lavishly funded program that aimed to accelerate the development and distribution of coronavirus elixirs.

    At the same time, the Russian government poured resources into developing its own vaccine. Funding for the public health initiative came from the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), the country’s sovereign wealth fund. In June 2020, RDIF announced a joint venture with R-Pharm, one of Russia’s largest pharmaceutical firms. The duo would work together to produce and distribute a vaccine developed by the Russian health ministry’s Gamaleya Center.

    The health ministry approved the vaccine after less than two months of testing, making Sputnik V the world’s first registered COVID shot. The drug’s catchy name was the brainchild of RDIF CEO Kirill Dmitriev, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader (Class of 2009). The Soros Foundation spotted Dmitriev’s potential at an early age, and awarded him a scholarship to study at Stanford University and later Harvard Business School. He worked for Goldman Sachs and McKinsey & Company before taking the reins at RDIF in 2011.

    Rather than buying food and ending hunger of their own people in China, they gave that money to a hunger charity of the VP. And that’s not influence peddling, aka “Bribery.” Explain.

    Ouch, crystal clear. Bidet’s mandates of force poisoning everyone or you lose your job, go hungry and bankrupt was crystal clear as well. Bidet is an evil corrupt pos, as is the DIm party. The Dims went full hypocritical retard with Russia gate, Covid and now UKR- fuck them all to hell Social Justice style.

    There is no way out. Except re-uniting under truth and morality, helping each other. The only thing that can replace the universal lies and failure of man is spirituality

    The Republicans never do anything for anybody except themselves, and that they do in grand narcissistic style. I get it that a lot of Flyover Country folk groove on Trump because he represents a return to nationalism over globalism in terms of political priorities, but the man himself was and is temperamentally and professionally ill-suited to the highest political office in the land (not that the position means a whole lot anymore anyway).
