A lot of Elon Musk today, for obvious reasons. From his full TED interview to bits of that, as well as other tidbits.





Elon TED “My strong intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted & broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization.”
“I don’t care about the economics at all.”

The empire strikes back. Twitter is a major mind control tool. Can’t let that go.

Elon Musk Is No Longer Twitter’s Largest Shareholder (WSJ)

While Elon Musk is trying to buy Twitter Inc., he’s no longer the company’s largest shareholder. Funds held by Vanguard Group recently upped their stake in the social-media platform, making the asset manager Twitter’s largest shareholder and bumping Mr. Musk out of the top spot. Vanguard disclosed on April 8 that it now owns 82.4 million shares of Twitter, or 10.3% of the company, according to the most recent publicly available filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The asset-manager increased its stake in the company at some point during the first quarter, according to the filings. Vanguard’s holdings are now worth $3.78 billion, based on Twitter stock’s closing price on Wednesday. That’s enough to knock Mr. Must off the perch as Twitter’s largest shareholder, according to FactSet.

Vanguard isn’t making a directional bet on Twitter. Instead, the majority of its assets are in index and other so-called passive funds. The firm often sides with management on voting issues and doesn’t advocate for changes like a hedge fund or activist investor might. Mr. Musk initially disclosed a stake in Twitter earlier this month of almost 73.5 million shares, but a day later his disclosed stake dropped to 73.1 million shares, or 9.1% of the company. The position momentarily made him the largest shareholder in the company. Vanguard previously reported owning 67.2 million shares of Twitter or about 8.4% of the company as of the end of December, according to FactSet. Mr. Musk along with former Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey, who is number seven on the list, are the only individuals among the top 10 shareholders in the company. The rest of the spots are occupied by financial institutions.

“For us, ‘The Russian World’ means something else, far broader. It means wherever live those who are opposed to the exploitative and manipulative Western/Anglo-Zionist/Nazi/NATO/Globalist/Capitalist ideology and project.”

What is ‘The Russian World’? (Batiushka)

In 1991, the Soviet Empire crashed, leaving chaos in Eurasia, which the Western-inspired sticking plaster of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) did nothing to remedy. Unlike Western European colonial empires, the vacuum left by the USSR covered one contiguous landmass. Moreover, the space vacated had history, going back hundreds of years to the Russian Empire, fallen in the British-organised palace coup of 1917. As nature abhors a vacuum, it was clear that such a vacuum and its chaos could not prevail for long. After the alcohol-hazed and gangster-crazed years of the Harvard-puppeteered Yeltsin and the ensuing genocide and suicide of millions in the old Soviet Union, in the 2000s, sense, order and hope slowly began to re-emerge.

It arrived in the quite ancient concept of ‘The Russian World’ (‘Russky Mir’), which was first officially used in its modern sense in 2007, when President Putin decreed the establishment of the government-sponsored ‘Russky Mir Foundation’. From here on, this term became more and more common and is notably widely used by the multinational Russian Orthodox Church. However, what does this term actually mean? For some, the term ‘The Russian World’ means wherever Russians live. If it means only that, then this is a purely nationalistic project. It would mean that the remaining elitist oligarchs inside Russia, the Euro-Atlanticists, who as fifth columnists co-operate with CIA agents inside and outside Russia, belong to ‘The Russian World’. It would mean that the corrupt and treacherous aristocrats/oligarchs who after 1917 moved mainly to Paris and since 1991 have moved mainly to London, Tel Aviv and New York, also belong to ‘The Russian World’. Do they?

For some, the term ‘The Russian World’ means the Russian-speaking world. If it means only that, then this is a purely linguistic project. And yet there are many all over the world, from China to Venezuela, from New Zealand to Scotland, who strongly identify with Russia and her aims, but who do not speak any Russian. Are they then excluded? For some, the term ‘The Russian World’ means wherever Orthodox Christians live. If it means only that, then this is a purely denominational project. Given some 500 fringe intellectuals and pseudo-intellectuals, who formally belong to the Orthodox Church and who compiled a Declaration on the ‘Russian World’ Teaching on 13 March 2022, calling it an “ideology”, “a heresy” and “a form of religious fundamentalism” that is “totalitarian in character.” So do they belong to ‘The Russian World’?

For us, ‘The Russian World’ means something else, far broader. It means wherever live those who are opposed to the exploitative and manipulative Western/Anglo-Zionist/Nazi/NATO/Globalist/Capitalist ideology and project. Although we mainly live in Russia, China, India, Africa, Latin America, the Muslim World, Indonesia and Kazakhstan, we exist all over the world, even within the conquered heartlands of the Evil Empire, in the USA, Canada, the UK, Israel, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. We are those who resist the carefully-orchestrated campaign of slander of the elite, which arrogantly calls itself ‘the international community’. For those who live in the virtual world and who fly the made-up Lower Austrian flag of the made-up Ukraine, of whose history and geography they know nothing, the lies of that elite seem real. For us who live in the real world, the Russian world, they are both absurd and evil.

“China’s top offshore oil and gas producer CNOOC Ltd. is preparing to exit its operations in Britain, Canada, and the United States, because of concerns in Beijing that assets could become subject to Western sanctions.”

Here Comes China: The World Rotated One More Time (Amarynth)

The world rotated one more time since the last report on China. So, what do we know? China is rock-solid behind Russia in all of Russia’s objectives, and in some instances, up ahead. It almost seems as if an agreement was, if not stated, then understood. Russia will do the shootin’ for now, and China will keep the economic boat afloat. We see consistent commenting such as China is a consistent stabilizing force in a changing world Overall NATO is feeling the pressure and ‘resetting’ and trying to clone itself as Aukus in the east while trying to strengthen itself in the west. We have Stoltenberg announcing: “What we see now is a new reality, a new normal for European security. Therefore, we have now asked our military commanders to provide options for what we call a reset, a more longer-term adaptation of NATO.”.

In this speech, he announced that plans are being worked up to transform NATO into a major force capable of taking on an invading army and states that NATO deepens partnerships in Asia in response to a rising “security challenge” from China. Yet, in the east, the Quad is one less, given India’s refusal to follow the U.S. regarding Russia. Japan has been asked to join Aukus as a Japan, US, Australia, UK alliance intending to project a strong regional balance of power against China, Russia (and maybe India then?) in Asia. This Aukus will then have synergy,, they say, with Japanese technologies in areas such as hypersonic weapons and electronic warfare. Somehow I don’t see Japan as a suitable switch out for India, but then again, we’re dealing with desperate last gyrations of a world hegemon here, trying to project that it still has many friends.

A quick look at India. These days, if you see a country being threatened, you know already that they have started decoupling from so-called western democracy and Blinken has just threatened India yet again. He says the US is “monitoring rise in rights abuses in India” So, suddenly the US cares about human rights abuses in India. This bellicose rhetoric is not effective and way beyond its sell-by date. It is clear that Russia is decoupling from Europe, and this started before sanctions. But did you know that China is decoupling from Britain, Canada, and the US? This is a brand-new trend. China’s top offshore oil and gas producer CNOOC Ltd. is preparing to exit its operations in Britain, Canada, and the United States, because of concerns in Beijing that assets could become subject to Western sanctions. As it seeks to leave the West, CNOOC is looking to acquire new assets in Latin America and Africa, and also wants to prioritize the development of large, new prospects in Brazil, Guyana, and Uganda.

“There is not a pension fund in Europe that is solvent at this stage of the game. . . . The European government is collapsing. If they end up defaulting, you are going to have millions of people down there with pitch forks storming the parliament. So, to avoid that, they need war. . ”

The West Needs WWIII – Martin Armstrong (USAW)

Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong thinks the New World Order’s so-called “Great Reset” plan for humanity now needs war to try and make it work. It could happen in the next few weeks. Armstrong explains, “What they are trying to do is deliberately poke the bear. . . . They are increasing the pressure on just about everything under the sun. The West needs World War III. They just need it. The real problem here is they went to negative interest rates in 2014 in Europe. They have been unable to stimulate the economy, and Keynesian economics have completely failed. . . . I would say this is mismanagement of government on a global scale. The problem is that central banks have no control over the economy. Add to this, this type of inflation is substantially different than a speculative boom.

This inflation is based upon shortages. These morons with covid . . . with lockdowns, ended up destroying the supply chains. . . . Things that are there, I buy extra of because next time it might be gone. So, everybody is increasing their hoarding. . . . So, what we have with Europe, with its negative interest rates, they have wiped out all the pension funds. They need 8% to break even, not negative rates. There is not a pension fund in Europe that is solvent at this stage of the game. . . . The European government is collapsing. If they end up defaulting, you are going to have millions of people down there with pitch forks storming the parliament. So, to avoid that, they need war. . . . The Biden Administration has deliberately destroyed the world economy.”

If there is war in Europe, the “U.S. dollar will get stronger initially and not weaker” according to Armstrong. Armstrong also says, “This is all deliberate. There is no return to normal here. Unfortunately, this is where we are headed.” Armstrong contends, war in Europe could break out in a couple of weeks, and the EU and NATO are pushing this. Armstrong says, “They want Russia to do something. . . . This thing with Russia is the same thing all over again. Unfortunately, we are headed for war.”

US/NATO comes ever closer to Russia, and with more weapons. While claiming to want peace.

Russia Warns of Nuclear Deployments If Finland, Sweden Join NATO (Antiwar)

A close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Thursday that if Finland and Sweden join NATO, Russia would have to bolster its forces on its western border and said a “nuclear-free” Baltic region would no longer be possible. “If Sweden and Finland join NATO, the length of the alliance’s land borders with the Russian Federation will more than double. Naturally, these borders will have to be strengthened,” said Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, who served as Russia’s president from 2008 to 2012. Finland shares an over 800-mile border with Russia, and if it is admitted to NATO, Medvedev said Moscow would significantly bolster its forces in the Gulf of Finland, the easternmost part of the Baltic Sea.

He said Russia will “seriously strengthen the grouping of land forces and air defense, deploy significant naval forces in the waters of the Gulf of Finland. In this case, it will no longer be possible to talk about any nuclear-free status of the Baltic – the balance must be restored.” The Russian enclave of Kaliningrad is on the Baltic Sea, wedged between NATO members Poland and Lithuania. In 2018, Russia deployed nuclear-capable Iskander missiles to Kaliningrad, but it’s not clear if they are tipped with nuclear warheads. Medvedev also suggested hypersonic missiles could be deployed. “No sane person wants higher prices and higher taxes, increased tensions along borders, Iskanders, hypersonics, and ships with nuclear weapons literally at arm’s length from their own home,” he said. “Let’s hope that the common sense of our northern neighbors will win.”

In the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Finland and Sweden are moving closer to joining NATO. Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said Wednesday that the decision could be made “within weeks.” While Russia is against NATO absorbing the two Nordic countries, Medvedev said Moscow views the situation differently than Ukraine’s aspirations to join the military alliance. “We don’t have territorial disputes with those countries like we do with Ukraine,” he said. “For that reason, the price of their membership for us is different.”

“I underline how critical it is: if Odesa falls, then I’m afraid it’s going to be very, very difficult for us to turn this around.”

The UK is Trying to Drag the US into World War III (Tracey)

There’s a chap called Tobias Ellwood who’s spent the past week doggedly promoting his latest idea to save Western civilization. “From a military perspective,” Ellwood explained during a recent speaking engagement, it’s never been more urgent to impose a “humanitarian sea corridor” off the coast of Ukraine. This would involve an outright naval intervention by NATO in the Black Sea — with the objective being to prevent Russia from seizing control of the strategically important city of Odesa. Perhaps upon commencement of this mission, Ellwood suggested, listless denizens of “The West” will finally come to appreciate the existential stakes of the conflict now before us, and “accept that we are actually in a 1938 period, but actually worse.” The double “actually” was presumably included for maximum emphasis.

Notably, Ellwood is not some random crank. He is “actually” a Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom, and the chairman of the impressively-titled Defence Select Committee. In that latter capacity, he seeks to exert influence over the Defence policy of Her Majesty’s Government, which is currently led by his Conservative Party colleague Boris Johnson. During the private event, hosted by a Think Tank which unilaterally and hilariously decreed his comments “off the record,” Ellwood described the plan he envisaged for how this new phase of military intervention in Ukraine would unfold. It should be up to the UK to “create a coalition of the willing,” he declared — borrowing the terminology once used for countries that participated in the US invasion of Iraq, which memorably included the UK. Ellwood evidently detected no ignominy at all in this historical association.

On the subject of Ukraine, Ellwood’s view is that the UK and Europe must stop waiting around for the US to get its act together, and instead proactively initiate the kind of muscular, unapologetic military action that is currently needed against Russia. The lesson of last year’s Afghanistan withdrawal, Ellwood charged — as well as Joe Biden’s purported Ukraine-related dithering — has been to “expose America to be very, very hesitant indeed.” He explained: “I see the United States almost catching up with where, from a military perspective, a vanguard may actually go.” Note that Ellwood’s plan certainly does not assume that the US would somehow just sit out whatever forthcoming war the UK may instigate. With the US as the real firepower behind NATO, that’s obviously not feasible.

Instead, his idea would simply be for the UK to place itself at the “vanguard” of precipitating the new military action, after which the US would inevitably be engulfed as well. Time is of the essence, Ellwood contends, because China has ominously joined with Russia to set about “dismantling the liberal world order” — a development Ellwood believes will elevate the conflict to a magnitude on par with the Peloponnesian War of Greek antiquity. “China will exploit the war in Ukraine to hasten America’s inevitable decline,” he warned. Out of these ashes, at least according to Ellwood’s apparent calculus, will rise the UK: “If we want Putin to fail,” Ellwood declared, “then we need to conclude this in months. We need to vow to press forward.” He added, “I underline how critical it is: if Odesa falls, then I’m afraid it’s going to be very, very difficult for us to turn this around.” (Note his use of the pronoun “us,” as though it should be understood that the UK is already an official combatant.)

We know.

From Mosul to Raqqa to Mariupol, Killing Civilians is a Crime (CP)

Americans have been shocked by the death and destruction of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, filling our screens with bombed buildings and dead bodies lying in the street. But the United States and its allies have waged war in country after country for decades, carving swathes of destruction through cities, towns and villages on a far greater scale than has so far disfigured Ukraine. As we recently reported, the U.S. and its allies have dropped over 337,000 bombs and missiles, or 46 per day, on nine countries since 2001 alone. Senior U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency officers told Newsweek that the first 24 days of Russia’s bombing of Ukraine was less destructive than the first day of U.S. bombing in Iraq in 2003. The U.S.-led campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria bombarded those countries with over 120,000 bombs and missiles, the heaviest bombing anywhere in decades.

U.S. military officers told Amnesty International that the U.S. assault on Raqqa in Syria was also the heaviest artillery bombardment since the Vietnam War. Mosul in Iraq was the largest city that the United States and its allies reduced to rubble in that campaign, with a pre-assault population of 1.5 million. About 138,000 houses were damaged or destroyed by bombing and artillery, and an Iraqi Kurdish intelligence report counted at least 40,000 civilians killed. Raqqa, which had a population of 300,000, was gutted even more. A UN assessment mission reported that 70-80% of buildings were destroyed or damaged. Syrian and Kurdish forces in Raqqa reported counting 4,118 civilian bodies. Many more deaths remain uncounted in the rubble of Mosul and Raqqa. Without comprehensive mortality surveys, we may never know what fraction of the actual death toll these numbers represent.

The Pentagon promised to review its policies on civilian casualties in the wake of these massacres, and commissioned the Rand Corporation to conduct a study titled, “Understanding Civilian Harm in Raqqa and Its Implications For Future Conflicts,” which has now been made public. Even as the world recoils from the shocking violence in Ukraine, the premise of the Rand Corp study is that U.S. forces will continue to wage wars that involve devastating bombardments of cities and populated areas, and that they must therefore try to understand how they can do so without killing quite so many civilians. The study runs over 100 pages, but it never comes to grips with the central problem, which is the inevitably devastating and deadly impacts of firing explosive weapons into inhabited urban areas like Mosul in Iraq, Raqqa in Syria, Mariupol in Ukraine, Sanaa in Yemen or Gaza in Palestine.

Do the French -again- bail out Société Générale?

Russia’s Richest Oligarch Bails Out Société Générale In “Fantastic Deal” (F.)

Personal sanctions have hit the pocketbooks and portfolios of many Russian oligarchs, as the U.S., the EU and the U.K. go after their palatial homes, private jets and audacious yachts. One person who has not yet been sanctioned by those powers (but was sanctioned by Canada last week) is Vladimir Potanin, a metals tycoon and one of Russia’s original oligarchs. His company, MMC Norilsk Nickel PJSC (also known as “Nornickel”), the world’s biggest producer of refined nickel and palladium, is benefitting from soaring commodities prices amid the wartime supply crunch. Now, amid the upheaval of war, Potanin is moving to expand his business empire. The French bank Société Générale announced yesterday it was selling Rosbank, a Russia-based banking group, back to Interros, Potanin’s investment conglomerate.

Société Générale paid an estimated $4.3 billion to Interros between 2006 and 2014 to amass a near 100% stake in the Russian bank and its subsidiaries. Transaction terms were not disclosed, but Société Générale said that Interros would pay off the Russian unit’s outstanding loans and that the French bank would write off $3.3 billion. A spokesperson for Société Générale told Forbes over email: “With this agreement, concluded after several weeks of intensive work, the Group would exit in an effective and orderly manner from Russia, taking into account its employees and clients. Interros Capital is one of the largest private investment companies in Russia and is familiar with the bank, which would facilitate business continuity.”

Based on the available information so far, the deal was a “fantastic” one for Potanin, says Jerome Legras, head of research at Paris-based investment firm Axiom Alternative Investments, and former deputy head of structure capital finance at Société Générale. “The business is going to be disrupted of course because of the economy crashing and everything, but he’s getting a bank for close to zero, so of course it’s a good deal for him,” says Legras. “From the amount of the writedown they [Société Générale] say they took, and from the amount of capital in the company and what was said about the subordinated debt, it’s pretty clear this was a nominal price.” “In terms of pure equity, I think the price was pretty much zero,” adds Legras.

Pretty weak graph, and a far too long article.

Masks Fail Their Latest Test (Kirsch)

The CDC just decided to continue the transportation mask mandate for another two weeks. Dr. Bob Wachter, Chair of the Department of Medicine at UCSF, concurs with the CDC decision. Both are unable to differentiate real science from a sloppy study. There have been only two randomized trials to test whether public policy using masks to mitigate the spread of SARS-CoV-2 can reduce the spread. The first one, in Denmark, showed that masks don’t work. But the second one, in Bangladesh, claimed that they did. Nature called it a “rigorous study” and Stanford and Yale promoted it as definitive in a press release. But was it really? We challenged Yale Professor Jason Abaluck, the first author of that study, to defend their study.

To his credit (and our utter amazement), he agreed but with one condition: we were only allowed one person to challenge him (because that’s how science works of course). We instantly agreed. The discussion happened on April 3, 2022. The result: Abaluck failed. Badly. Very badly. One of our experts who viewed the interview said that it was worse than just sloppy work. He wrote, “This is bordering on fraud.” In short, the study actually failed to prove that masks work at all. For example, here’s the graph for purple cloth masks. If masks worked, it would be highly unlikely for these curves to be on top of each other. For some strange reason, graphs such as these were omitted from the paper. Can you guess why??? Yes, it’s because the study was designed to fit the narrative. Data that goes against the narrative is not highlighted.

You can see the entire 2-hour discussion yourself and make your own judgment. In this article, we include an analysis by one of our statisticians who viewed the video. We also include a link to an interview with statistician Mike Deskevich on his interpretation of the discussion. Initially, Professor Abaluck was so self-confident he thought he could run circles around us. He was wrong. The truth won. So now Abaluck has changed his tune. He now says he won’t talk to us anymore or answer any more questions. The bottom line is this: there is no rock on Earth that is large enough for the authors of that study to hide under. The use of masks to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has been debunked.

“As Anthony Fauci is now branded as “false information” by Facebook, in relation to clip that has resurfaced from the past in which he discusses the flu vaccine, we ask, is this really about protecting the world from disinformation?”

Fauci on Shanghai: “Use Lockdowns to Get People Vaccinated” (TNA)

As tens of millions of Shanghai residents are being put into the most ferocious lockdown to date, being locked in their apartments and reportedly starving, America’s Covid Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci signaled that such policies might be quite effective in curbing the spread of Covid if the government gets detained people vaccinated. During an MSNBC “Reports” interview on Wednesday, the host, Andrea Mitchell, asked Fauci whether the government was concerned about the Covid outbreak in China. For some reason, Mitchell seemed uninterested in the fact that 24.89 million people in China’s most populous urban area — the most populous city proper in the world — are being detained against their will. Fauci replied that by imposing strict lockdowns early in the pandemic, China was “doing better than anyone else” in terms of containing the virus. He said,

“China has a number of problems, two of which are that their complete lockdown, which was their approach, the strictest lockdown that you’d never be able to implement in the United States. Although that prevents the spread of infection, I remember early on they were saying, and I think accurately, they were doing better than almost anybody else.” Fauci continued by saying that while imposing the lockdown, the authorities must act to “get people vaccinated”: “But lockdown has its consequences. You use lockdowns to get people vaccinated so that when you open up, you won’t have a surge of infections.” Fauci did not specify how he saw a concrete way of getting people injected with the vaccine while they were not allowed to leave their homes. Presumably, the government could send medical personnel to each and every unvaccinated person.

Disregarding the concept of natural immunity, Fauci went on to explain that vaccination would be needed “Because you’re dealing with an immunologically naive population to the virus because they’ve not really been exposed because of the lockdown.” That claim goes against his own admission in 2004 that the “best vaccine is to get infected yourself.” Back then, Fauci said that if a person contracted the flu, she “definitely” did not need to get vaccinated because she was “as protected as anybody else.” Fauci continued by bashing Chinese vaccines for not being effective enough: “The problem is, that the vaccines that they’ve been using are not nearly as effective as the vaccines that are used in the United States, the UK, [the] EU, and other places. So, they don’t have the degree of protection that’s optimal.”

“Why does the CDC trust the peri/myocarditis data in VAERS but not the data on deaths?”

6 Double Standards Public Health Officials Used to Justify COVID Vaccines (CHD)

1. COVID deaths are ‘presumed,’ but vaccine deaths must be ‘proven’ As of April 8, VAERS included 26,699 reports of deaths following COVID vaccines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially acknowledges only nine of these. In order to establish causality, the CDC requires autopsies to rule out any possible etiology of death before the agency will place culpability on the vaccine. But the CDC uses a very different standard when it comes to identifying people who died from COVID. The 986,000 COVID deaths reported by the CDC here are, as footnote [1] indicates, “Deaths with confirmed or presumed [emphasis added] COVID-19.”

If a person dies with a positive PCR test or is presumed to have COVID, the CDC will count that as COVID-19 death. Note that in the CDC’s definition, a COVID fatality does not mean the person died from the disease, only with the disease. Why is an autopsy required to establish a COVID vaccine death but not to establish a COVID death? Conversely, why is recent exposure to SARS-CoV-2 prior to a death sufficient to establish causality — but recent exposure to a vaccine considered coincidental?

2. CDC uses VAERS data to investigate myocarditis yet claims VAERS data on vaccine deaths is unreliable On June 23, 2021, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices met to assess the risk of peri/myocarditis following COVID vaccination, especially in young males. This was the key slide in this presentation:

The observed risk of myocarditis is 219 in about 4.3 million second doses of COVID vaccine in males 18 to 24 years old. The CDC is fine with using VAERS data to assess risk of myocarditis following vaccination — yet the agency rejects all but nine of the 26,699 reports of deaths following the vaccines. Why does the CDC trust the peri/myocarditis data in VAERS but not the data on deaths? One reason may be because the onset of myocarditis symptoms is closely tied to the time of vaccination. In other words, because this condition closely follows inoculation the two events are highly correlated and suggestive of causation. For example, here is another slide from the same presentation:

I had no idea what my company was doing!

Former Monsanto CEO Files Protective Order to Avoid Testifying (CHD)

Former Monsanto Co. Chairman and CEO Hugh Grant is appealing a judge’s order that would allow lawyers for a cancer patient to question him on the stand in a trial scheduled to start next month in Kansas City. Lawyers for the former Monsanto executive filed a flurry of documents with the Missouri Court of Appeals Western District last week seeking to quash a subpoena compelling Grant to testify in person in the case of Allan Shelton v Monsanto. The trial of the civil suit is set to begin May 2 in Kansas City, Missouri. Shelton suffers from non-Hodgkin lymphoma and is one of more than 100,000 people around the United States who have alleged in lawsuits that exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, and other company herbicide brands made with a chemical called glyphosate, caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Shelton’s lawyers have argued that Grant was an active participant and decision-maker in the company’s Roundup business and should be made to testify at the trial, but Grant’s lawyers argue that Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Charles McKenzie’s approval of a subpoena for Grant to testify at trial was “in excess” of the judge’s authority and “an abuse of discretion.” Grant’s lawyers want the appeals court to issue a “writ of prohibition” and order the judge to take no further action other than to grant a protective order for Grant in the case.Grant claims in the filings that the effort to put him on the stand in front of a jury is “wholly unnecessary and serves only to harass and burden” him.

He notes in the filings that he left Monsanto in 2018 (when the company was sold to the German company Bayer AG), and that he already has given a “comprehensive videotaped deposition” in the nationwide Roundup litigation that can be presented at this trial. Grant’s testimony “would be of little value” because he is not a toxicologist, an epidemiologist, or a regulatory expert and “did not work in the areas of toxicology or epidemiology while employed by Monsanto,” the court filings state. Grant does not have “any expertise in the studies and tests that have been done related to Roundup generally, including those related to Roundup safety,” his lawyers argue.

Rolling Stone turns on Jan 6 Committee?

FBI Documents Expose Bureau‘s Big Jan. 6 ‘Lie‘ (RS)

In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 insurrection, the FBI told Congress and the American people that the agency had failed to prevent or fully prepare for the worst attack on the U.S. Capitol in more than 200 years in part because it lacked the authority and capabilities to more aggressively monitor social media, where much of the planning for the insurrection took place. As FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress last summer, the FBI had circulated intelligence materials and other resources before Jan. 6, but the agency had limits in what it could and couldn’t gather from social media. “When we have an authorized purpose and proper predication, there are a lot of things that we do at social media and we do do,” Wray said, “but [what] we cannot do on social media is, without proper predication and authorized purpose, just monitor just in case on social media.”

Wray added, “Now, if the policies should be changed to reflect that, that might be one of the important lessons learned coming out of this whole experience. But that’s not something that currently the FBI has either the authority or certainly the resources, frankly, to do.” Since Wray’s testimony, the bureau has sought to ramp up its online surveillance capabilities, including by entering into one of the largest social-media monitoring contracts of any federal agency. Yet internal FBI records obtained by Rolling Stone show that, well before Jan. 6, the bureau already engaged in ongoing and widespread tracking of Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, and other social-media platforms. The new documents suggest the agency has all the authority it needs to monitor the social-media platforms in the name of public safety — and, in fact, the bureau had done just that during the nationwide wave of racial justice protests in 2020.

Critics of the FBI say that the bureau’s desire for more authority and surveillance tools is part of a decades-long expansion of the vast security apparatus inside the federal government. The documents refer to teams of employees engaged in what law-enforcement agencies call “social-media exploitation,” or SOMEX. According to the documents, SOMEX teams gather reams of data from social media and distribute that information to special agents and other law-enforcement representatives. The documents show SOMEX data included in situation reports, or “sitreps,” distributed within the bureau.

The documents were first obtained by Property of the People, a government-transparency nonprofit group. “The documents bring into relief three consistent truths about the FBI,” says Ryan Shapiro, executive director of Property of the People. “One: At its core, the FBI is a political police force that primarily targets the left while ignoring or outright enabling the far-right. Two: FBI spokespersons lie like they breathe. Three: The Bureau shamelessly exploits national crises to expand the already dystopian reach of its surveillance.”

    Because Raul posted re Vanguard I thought I would repost my favourite video about who runs the world.

    If what I’m reading is only partially true, then society is in deep deep trouble…not to state the obvious…
    …however, this state generally creates a kind of power vaccum, which is just when the worst of the worst step in to fill that empty space…
    Beware the man who comes riding a white horse, bible in hand, and wrapped in the flag…

    Ukraine is an enigma, couched in a mystery, wrapped in lies; and will guide us into WWIII and a nuclear engagement…count on it…

    In honor of Musk’s attempt to own a company that openly communicates:
    “New Extremist Political Movement Recklessly Engages in Civil Discourse” –BBee

    Keeping up with the hospital drama, Vanderbilt is now lacking 250 nurses per each shift. They are not decertified. Everyone seems fine with running a hospital-shaped object, sans staff. Can they get to one nurse in the whole facility? Well they tried to hire travel nurses at a huge price, but no one will show up. But harken! These are the weasels! The lying weasels of Vanderbilt Health. They then recruited travel nurses and signed them without admitting that it was the lying, death-certificate forging, nurse-prosecuting Vanderbilt that was hiring. Brilliant!

    …Aaaaaaand no one showed up, even though they signed. Why would they? They can’t trust if anything happens Vanderbilt won’t tamper with evidence and prosecute them, because, they DID. So 1) fraud and misrepresentation in contract and 2) hazard to your life and license not worth risking. Sue me. I’ll sue you back. Travel nurses have the money, the job’s terrible even at a good hospital, nurses all talk to each other, and the bad PR won’t help you any either.

    So, no staff, thanks to…you know, dodging a common lawsuit with evidence tampering and pulling strings by having an active employee prosecute your staff. In court. So: a school. Hmm. Why not have the 1st year biology students pretend to be nurses? You know, full patient load, no actual nurses remaining to oversee you? No problems!

    Yes, they tried this. Even the students said no. …After Vanderbilt said they’d withhold their diplomas if they don’t commit fraud and medical malpractice by providing health care they weren’t trained for. How fast can I transfer again? Because I can’t legally risk being a resident training there either. So now you don’t have a medical school too?

    Other than that, going great! No problems here! No Covid, so never been better! Death rate is only 40% higher than the last 20 years.

    …And we hear similar from some other hospitals too, now that some people are talking about what’s been going on in health care. Support the troops! Our brave heroes!

    PMC Karens A) will mask the childrens B) won’t pay salaries with staffing levels. C) will hire more PMC admins. D) will die of it.

    What can I say? If this were a TV show you wouldn’t believe it. Nonsensical, too far out, irrational, murderous, and serving no purpose, not even economic.

    Economic? But they’re half-staffing hospitals, that’s Profit Central, right? Uh, no: that’s LAWSUITS. That will be paid in 60 seconds before any jury in America who hears what you’re doing. So wait: you HAD a whole floor, with standard providers, average nurse load, and the appropriate techs? And then you FIRED HALF OF THEM? Then my wife died because …?

    Pay this man his $5M settlement, and the 60 guys behind him too. Are you saving money now, you pajama-wearing spreadsheet jockeys? What’s legal say about the situation, or does hiring those nurses and staff sound cheap yet?

    But that’s not salt thrown on my account. I use the salt to warn you to fix the hospitals IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DIE. I think it’s something everybody can understand. Nobody wins at this, 100% of people are at risk by it. They’ve been screaming about it for years, every metric supports their alarm, and they just cut the medical support in half.

    Eat healthy. Drive safe. You’ll need it.

    Maybe the resident medical doctors here can ask how care is faring in their local regions.

    Now did I hear Powell hasn’t even started raising and the housing and re-fi have dried up already? Like a Bezos rocket, he can’t even get it up one point?

    Money 101: money doesn’t come from Powell printing. Technically. Money is created when people request loans. Aaaaaand when people no longer request loans, what important thing happens? In a world of infinitely-compounding interest?

    I thought he’d get 2-3x further than this, but maybe. We’ll see. We have no choice as tied-down victims of his spree of kidnapping and financial terror. Market says he’ll only get two in before failing. Then? The world’s biggest bailout money-printing evah. 10-year headed to new highs; I guess we now need TWO wars to stop it.

    If we have so much money, and none of it is down with the people, where is it? “ Wall Street Interns Now Earning $16,000 A Month As Talent War Heats Up” Oh yeah. Plenty of money for the Big Club.

    “France’s Macron Rejects Biden’s “Genocide” Claim Against Russia”

    No he doesn’t…he totally agrees but just doesn’t want you to SAY it. We’re supposed to be the good guys! Biden forgot. Like everything. Once Macron wins the election he’ll go back to screwing the poor people of France and Russia like before. He’s not a Rothchild bankersleeping with his mommy for nothin’.

    “Authorities Seize $13 Billion from Abramovich Associates in “Largest Asset Freeze in UK History”

    …On the basis that the West has no rule of law. What crime did Abramovich commit? Has it been proven in court?

    And for the warship: ouch, that’s gonna leave a mark. Both socially and monetarily. It does show why you have Blitzkrieg though, to make wars short. Every day that passes is another opportunity. PS, what makes you think the U.S. didn’t special-ops destroy it ‘cause Ukr couldn’t? From space? And Russia will now respond how?

    EU works to ban Russian crude, “Not one day seems to pass without the EU taking an aggressive step toward comprehensive self-destruction.”

    Like this: “preparing to exit its operations in Britain, Canada, and the United States, because of concerns in Beijing that assets could become subject to Western sanctions.”

    What did you THINK they would do? A: we don’t care, we’re broke now and need the money. Just trying to keep it all spinning one more hour at a time.

    Like this: ““There is not a pension fund in Europe that is solvent at this stage of the game. . . . The European government is collapsing. [T]hey end up defaulting,”

    “you are going to have millions of people down there with pitch forks storming the parliament.”

    We ALREADY had that. Many times. They don’t care, are outlawing and arresting them.

    ““From a military perspective,” Ellwood explained during a recent speaking engagement, it’s never been more urgent to impose a “humanitarian sea corridor” off the coast of Ukraine. This would involve an outright naval intervention by NATO in the Black Sea — with the objective being to prevent Russia from seizing control of the strategically important city of Odesa. “

    Finally, somebody with brains enough to realize Russia isn’t just wandering around, failing aimlessly. They are land-locking Ukraine and half of Europe. Answer? Of course! “Let’s start WWIII!!!” Blue checkmarks all approve! And no, they cannot come to my house when their cities are nuked to rubble.

    “Ellwood’s view is that the UK and Europe must stop waiting around for the US to get its act together, and instead proactively initiate the kind of muscular, unapologetic military action that is currently needed against Russia.”

    Hahahahahaha! Wtf? With the 20 men and no jets you have in Germany? With the non-working HMS carriers that had no working jets landing on them in England? In the Black Sea, a Russian lake and shooting gallery? Aaaaaaand you’re planning on doing this with what supply lines and merchant marine? You do you, man. But I don’t need your charity: you don’t HAVE to embargo, level Europe, and kill every European on my behalf. I don’t need cheap gas and 40-ounce cokes that much.

    “locked in their apartments and reportedly starving, America’s Covid Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci signaled that such policies might be quite effective in” …rationing food that Joe has embargoed from American citizens. Our friends get food, our enemies don’t. Do what you’re told. Any questions?

    “Although that prevents the spread of infection,” Uh, no it doesn’t. China does this all the time and it keeps happening. Australia is worse than before they started. Singapore looks like a fail. 1.5% success with lockdowns. P.S. masks don’t work.

    “immunologically naive population” No you’re not. First everyone HAD antibodies, you just refused to test for them. Second, everyone has Omicron. He’s saying we’re “Naive” and the virus is totally new when they are ALSO talking about redefining it as so common and widespread it’s “Endemic”. Those are dead-opposites, and it’s not because Covid hasn’t been anywhere. Are you really saying no one got Covid, Tony? That’s an odd argument from you 2 years in.

    What he really means is, the virus of FREEDOM is still widespread and needs to be exterminated.

    “the FBI told Congress and the American people that the agency had failed to prevent or fully prepare for the worst attack on the U.S. Capitol in more than 200 years”

    Was that the one where The PRESIDENT asked the head of Washington D.C. to call in 10k men from the National Guard ahead of time to make sure everything stayed under control? And she flatly refused? Her name is Nancy Pelosi. CONGRESS is in full control of the Capitol, and indeed all of D.C. And since the President tweeted this openly, the FBI “forgot” to be prepared for why exactly? At the same time they were so unprepared they had +20 agents there, in addition to – as we see from Michigan – half of all the militia are made up of FBI informers and instigators in the first place? Funny. But not ha ha funny. Who is Ray Epps again? That guy they “forgot” to put on the Most wanted?

    P.S. “Gimme mo’ money and power” – Wray “that’s not something that currently the FBI has either the authority or certainly the resources, frankly, to do.” They DID have the resources to find the Brooklyn shooter, in 2019. And let him go like every other shooter I can think of right now. Nik Cruz at Stoneman School comes to mind, but almost all were so why bother?

    “Israeli Spyware Maker NSO Group Asks SCOTUS for Sovereign Immunity”

    They’ve always had it before. It’s tradition. Hey, – and I know, this is hilarious – remember the time Israel sold all our secret airplane tech to China? Remember the time they sold all our nuclear tech to Pakistani extremists? And I know, here’s the best part: and that’s why Pakistan has the bomb and is contemplating nuclear war with India? Man, allies! Good times or what?

    “a public platform that is maximally trusted & broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization.” “I don’t care about the economics at all.”

    Neither do they. First they drove a success into failure. Then they banned everybody. Not even just their enemies, but…everybody…who was the slightest bit interesting. Musk then injects money into their failing plan, and they refuse to go back to doing what was profitable. Then Musk offers to bail a failing platform that makes 1c/user at a +10% instant premium, and they say no.

    Conclusion: We Hate Money. Because we’re radical socialists and a weird woke religious cult.

    Actually (and strangely) it’s illegal for Twitter to do this, even though we’ve had no rule of law for +20 years now. The board can’t just ESG, do whatever the feelz, they have to “maximize shareholder value” at least plausibly or they are in violation of their own charter. Actively preventing their shareholders from getting 10-20% overnight gains from Musk is breaking that “law”. They can and will be expensively sued over it. And of course they don’t care, because they are religious zealots who only use money to promote their religion.

    “The firm [Vanguard] often sides with management on voting issues and doesn’t advocate for changes”

    Hahahahaa! Suuuuuure they don’t. They just only fund friends who “do what they’re told” and starve out or [naked] short enemies. Pure as the driven snow! It’s too early to snort coffee over risibles like this.

    Will it ever end?


    Tobias Ellwood is a toffee nosed dancing prancing fop like Zelensky

    He has no understanding of the military machine Russia has invented and thoroughly tested, first in Syria, and now in the Ukraine.

    The Empire of Lies and it’s Eurotard Poodles have nothing to compare to it.

    And the Russians are rapidly perfecting and ironing out the bugs in this military machine as we speak, on the Eurasian continent.

    They have made plenty of mistakes but I have supreme confidence that the Russians, unlike the Empire of Lies, actually learn from their mistakes and correct them. It’s a matter of survival for them.

    The Empire of Lies only does stuff for money and the bloated, corpulent carcass of the criminal Military Industrial Mafia® who spend ten times as much per weapon and still produce utterly inferior junk.

    John Michael Greer wrote on this years ago and mentioned the Empire of Lies F-35 ‘fighter’ jet.

    Bloated, under-performing, hysterically overpriced, can’t even takeoff with a full set of armaments.

    He said the nickname for it was ‘the Lard Bucket’

    The fearsome F-35 Lard Bucket, sure to strike terror in the hearts of ‘enemies’ world wide.

    The Daily Expose is reporting that, based on public records of the US government, a contract was awarded for ‘COVID-19 research’ in Ukraine three months before the WHO officially named the pandemic (and one month before the alleged known emergence of the disease in December 2019):

    U.S. Department of Defense awarded a contract for ‘COVID-19 Research’ in Ukraine 3 months before Covid was known to even exist

    Of course, there are links to EcoHealth Alliance and Metabiota.


    This article on corruption in the CDC and FDA came out a while back, but I’m not sure whether it was mentioned on TAE; it’s a well-documented and damning recitation of the many examples of how and why these institutions completely fail in their perceived mission of “public health:”

    Jaques Baud, ex-Swiss SS, ex-high HCR official (Rwanda), expert on Peace negotiations, arms control, ex JMAC, DOMP, etc. (wiki in F, there isn’t one in English, 1) in short someone I trust for insider info, has said, putting forward the usual caveats, that in the underground complex of Azovstal, Mariupol, where there are 24 kms of underground corridors and ‘rooms’ (that doesn’t seem like much to me..2) are stuck (3):

    53 French Officers
    37 Afghans (recycled there after the US ‘retreat’)
    X Islamic ISIS type fighters transfered from Idlib
    —a few others— (implied rag-tag)

    Which would explain Macron’s hysteria. Baud makes no mention of NATO-US personnel.

    Besides that, Baud’s article re. Ukr. ‘war’, 1 April 2022, particularly the explanation of build-up, is a v. good short read. Postil magazine, 4.

    Do I get this right? Twitter’s “poison pill” plan means the value of all shares will be diluted, not just Elon Musk’s. Everybody loses to cost Musk some money.

    Existing shareholders are offered newly “printed” shares. More shares=less value per share. Twitter’s board is in breach of their fiduciary duty and Elon Musk can and should sue them. Every shareholder should.


    @Raul, I read them. Thank you for the effort you put in. Appreciated.


    Yes, RIM, we (myself and others) go to many of your daily links. For me, it’s often overwhelming so I sometimes have to rely on our Community Commentariat to help separate the wheat from the chaff (as it were). Of course this leads me to sign up for more email news feeds….I want to thank you and everyone else here for sharing the important perspectives that help me to remain focused on this “life and how to live it”….😶🤔😃🙏🕊️☀️

    “Sometimes I wonder if you guys actually read these things.”
    How would you want us to emphasize what we agree with, and thinks needs repeating.
    (I hope, Not as much as the propaganda machines beating the war drums.)


    WHAT …… Russia has WWIII military hardware …..
    “On April 14, two Russian strategic heavy bombers Tu-95/-160 have launched cruise missiles hitting the territory of Ukraine from Krasnodar Krai of Russian Federation airspace,” he said. “Also for the first time from the start of the armed aggression bombs were dropped by a long-range bombers Tu-22M3. This airstrike took place, hitting Mariupol.”

    Additionally, Moscow has freshly warned Washington this week to stop supplying arms to Kiev, warning of “unpredictable consequences” to come by continuing down this path. Indeed given Russia is now losing entire warships, and with a crew of over 500 having to be evacuated, the war has just entered a new unpredictable phase.
    Impunity – exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences of an action:


    Russia losing a warship.

    I have read a number of comments on this sinking, especially on why Russia is not publically admitting the warship was sunk by 2 missiles.

    The best comment indicated Russia is very wary of any preceived attempt to link this sinking to Nato involvement. Russia doesn’t want to give the Nato war hawks any excuse to get Nato involved in the Ukraine.

    That said, this sinking has Nato/US fingerprints all over it! We know the Ukraine is fighting this war without any eyes and ears of it’s own. The Ukraine is 100% dependent upon Nato/US eyes and ears. So we can guess who supplied the location data to sink the ship.

    Meanwhile, on pastures of ignorant bliss…

    Small businesses around the country are growing more pessimistic as rising inflation, supply chain issues and a worker shortage continue to threaten their viability.

    A new survey from the National Federation of Independent businesses found these issues are hitting small business owners hard.

    “Thirty-one percent of owners reported that inflation was the single most important problem in their business, up five points from February and the highest reading since the first quarter of 1981,” the report said. “Inflation has now replaced ‘labor quality’ as the number one problem.”

    Federal inflation data released this week showed that producer prices have risen a record 11.2 percent in the last year while consumer prices have risen 8.5 percent, the highest in four decades.


    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday night offered a preview for the Biden administration’s next steps with student debt, following President Joe Biden’s move earlier this month to extend the pause for federal student-loan repayments through Aug. 31.

    “So between now and Aug. 31, it’s either going to be extended or we’re going to make a decision, as Ron referenced, about canceling student debt,” Psaki said, referring to past comments by Ron Klain, the White House’s chief of staff. Her remarks came late Thursday during a live taping of the podcast “Pod Save America.”

    Biden has long supported broad student-debt cancellation of up to $10,000 per borrower. 😆

    Psaki stressed that “the president’s preference” is for Congress to pass legislation that would cancel $10,000 in student debt, since that would be “more permanent” than an executive action that might be overturned in the future by courts or a Republican president.

    But taking executive action to cancel some level of student debt is still on the table, according to the White House spokeswoman. The Biden administration has been reviewing the legality of broad cancellation by executive action and hasn’t announced a decision.

    Jacque Baud’s Ukraine write up is one of the best that I have read.

    That the US wants a war in the Ukraine, in my opinion, stems as a result of the CIA/State Dept stealing the 2020 election and installing a true puppet in the White House. There is now no adult in charge, so these people feel free to do whatever they want to do.

    We are not just seeing only the Ukrainians trying to plant multiple false flags. The US is also planting false flags, one after another, using Nato. They successfully started this war. The US through Nato is deliberately and openly supplying weapons to the Ukraine to provoke Russia in the hopes Russia will give Nato the excuse it needs to get directly involved. One shouldn’t forget the US earlier supplied the location of a Russian supply ship sunk in Mariupol. This was a false flag operation. Sinking of a second Russian ship is merely another in a series of false flag operations.

    As long as Russia “goes slow” in the Ukraine, this gives the US much more time to set up more such false flag operations. I think we should expect many more false flag operations from the US. These are going to try Russia’s patience sorely. This is why many Russians are pushing for Russia to go harder and faster in the Ukraine. But they forget how desperate Nato/US are to get directly involved in the war. Putin knows this and has purposely held back in reserve, his very best troops and weapons, waiting for for Nato/US entry into the war.

    The war in the Ukraine isn’t really about the Ukraine. Sorry Ukrainians. The US is just using the Ukrainians to achieve it’s⁸ objectives, first destroy Russia, then destroy China. It is all about the US using the dollar to control the world through it’s banking system.

    It seems there are some countries who don’t seem to agree with these US objectives. The US has successfully used it’s banking system in the past against many small countries. However, this is the first time it has tried to use it’s banking system against a major country. They did this by seizing all of Russia’s foreign reserves held in dollars, pounds, Euros, and Yen. This is an act of war by any standards!

    For Russia this war is all about it’s survival! They don’t have the luxury of not fighting! They are cornered. The US is going to have to learn the hard way, like Nepoleon and Hitler, “YOU DO NOT MARCH ON MOSCOW!

    I can only hope somehow in the end, the folks running the CIA/State Dept. get blamed for starting this disaster, and lose their current power to appoint and run future American governments. Hopefully this war will show the American people just how f**King incompetent they really are! But I am not holding my breath for such a miracle.

    Maybe, if we are really really lucky, it will turn out like Argentina’s brilliant military run government getting their country involved in the Falkland War, to distract from domestic troubles, only to lose power in disgrace, after suddenly losing the war to the British. This change happened in just a few months, in a lot less time than it takes to march to Moscow!

    This is the largest eugenics program ever orchestrated on mankind ever. It is like taking the holocaust and applying it to the entire 8 billion people on the planet. And it is exactly what they are doing. And it is so far out of our reach to think that men could be that evil but this is absolutely what is the case.




    I am hoping the CIA/State Dept. that stole the 2020 election turn out to be as dumb as a box of rocks!

    Yes. They have already killed and maimed millions of earthlings with their vaccines but the worst of their killings maybe yet to come.

    The video on Paul Keating is very interesting although long. A former Australian prime minister, he seems well-informed and sensible, and puts many current leading figures to shame. Ukraine and Russia are touched on around 58 min.


    Ilargi yes you are right… but my post took off from trying to look into what is going on in Mariupol, and J. Baud is one of the few ppl (that I know of) who might have some good information and gave an interview on, in part, this very topic …so that good piece comes up again..
