Zelensky Rejected German Security Proposal Before Russian Invasion (Antiwar)

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky rejected a proposal from German Chancellor Olaf Scholz just days before the Russian invasion. The February 19 offer called on Kyiv to renounce its NATO aspirations and declare neutrality. At the time, Zelensky rejected the security plan saying Russian President Vladimir Putin could not be trusted to uphold the agreement. Under Berlin’s plan, Putin and American President Joe Biden would sign the deal and jointly guarantee Ukraine’s security. The Wall Street Journal, which initially reported the proposal, said that Zelensky rejecting the offer “left German officials worried that the chances of peace were fading.”

The day after the meeting, French President Emmanual Marcon appealed to Biden in a call between world leaders to make another push for diplomacy. “I think the last person who could still do something is you, Joe. Are you ready to meet Putin?” Macron said to Biden. However, Washington appeared uninterested in a push for diplomacy. While the full details of the German offer are unknown, it appears similar to proposals Zelensky has outlined in recent weeks. Ukraine’s top negotiator David Arakhamia said Russia had “verbally” agreed to several of Kyiv’s positions. On Sunday, Russia’s top negotiator Vladimir Medinsky said the two sides are not close enough to an agreement for a meeting between Putin and Zelensky. “The draft agreement is not ready for submission to a meeting at the top,” the Russian chief negotiator said.

Questions Abound About Bucha Massacre (Lauria)

Last Wednesday, all Russian forces left Bucha, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. This was confirmed on Thursday by a smiling Anatolii Fedoruk, the mayor of Bucha, in a video on the Bucha City Council official Facebook page. The translated post accompanying the video says: “March 31 – the day of the liberation of Bucha. This was announced by Bucha Mayor Anatolii Fedoruk. This day will go down in the glorious history of Bucha and the entire Bucha community as a day of liberation by the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the Russian occupiers.” All of the Russian troops are gone and yet there is no mention of a massacre. The beaming Fedoruk says it is a “glorious day” in the history of Bucha, which would hardly be the case if hundreds of dead civilians littered the streets around Fedoruk.

“Russian Defence Ministry denied accusations by the Kiev regime of the alleged killing of civilians in Bucha, Kiev Region. Evidence of crimes in Bucha appeared only on the fourth day after the Security Service of Ukraine and representatives of Ukrainian media arrived in the town. All Russian units completely withdrew from Bucha on March 30, and ‘not a single local resident was injured’ during the time when Bucha was under the control of Russian troops,” the Russian MOD said in a post on Telegram. What happened then on Friday and Saturday? As pointed out in a piece by Jason Michael McCann on Standpoint Zero, The New York Times was in Bucha on Saturday and did not report a massacre. Instead, the Times said the withdrawal was completed on Saturday, two days after the mayor said it was, and that the Russians left “behind them dead soldiers and burned vehicles, according to witnesses, Ukrainian officials, satellite images and military analysts.”

The Times said reporters found the bodies of six civilians. “It was unclear under what circumstances they had died, but the discarded packaging of a Russian military ration was lying beside one man who had been shot in the head,” the paper said. It then quoted a Zelensky adviser, who said: “’The bodies of people with tied hands, who were shot dead by soldiers lie in the streets,’ the adviser, Mykhailo Podolyak, said on Twitter. ‘These people were not in the military. They had no weapons. They posed no threat.’ He included an image of a scene, photographed by Agence France-Presse, showing three bodies on the side of a road, one with hands apparently tied behind the back. The New York Times was unable to independently verify Mr. Podolyak’s claim the people had been executed.’” It is possible that on Saturday the full extent of the horror had yet to emerge, and that even the mayor was unaware of it two days before, though photos now show many of the bodies out in the open on the streets of the town, something that presumably would be difficult to miss.

In Bucha, the Times was close to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, whose soldiers appear in the newspaper’s photographs. In his piece, McCann suggests that Azov may responsible for the killings: “Something very interesting then happens on [Saturday] 2 April, hours before a massacre is brought to the attention of the national and international media. The US and EU-funded Gorshenin Institute online [Ukrainian language] site Left Bank announced that: ‘Special forces have begun a clearing operation in the city of Bucha in the Kyiv region, which has been liberated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The city is being cleared from saboteurs and accomplices of Russian forces.’

The Russian military has by now completely left the city, so this sounds for all the world like reprisals. The state authorities would be going through the city searching for ‘saboteurs’ and ‘accomplices of Russian forces.’ Only the day before [Friday], Ekaterina Ukraintsiva, representing the town council authority, appeared on an information video on the Bucha Live Telegram page wearing military fatigues and seated in front of a Ukrainian flag to announce ‘the cleansing of the city.’ She informed residents that the arrival of the Azov battalion did not mean that liberation was complete (but it was, the Russians had fully withdrawn), and that a ‘complete sweep’ had to be performed.” Ukraintsiva was speaking a day after the mayor had said the town was liberated.

“We have no reason whatsoever to refute the Ukrainian claims about these atrocities..”

Pentagon Can’t Independently Confirm Atrocities In Ukraine’s Bucha (R.)

The U.S. military is not in a position to independently confirm Ukrainian accounts of atrocities by Russian forces against civilians in the town of Bucha, but has no reason to dispute the accounts either, a senior U.S. defense official said on Monday. “We’re seeing the same imagery that you are. We have no reason whatsoever to refute the Ukrainian claims about these atrocities — clearly, deeply, deeply troubling,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “The Pentagon can’t independently and single handedly confirm that, but we’re also not in any position to refute those claims.” The Kremlin has denied accusations related to the murder of civilians in the town.

“We will supply food and crops only to our friends (fortunately, we have a lot of them, and they are not at all in Europe and not in North America)”

Russia Threatens to Limit Exports of Ag Products to ‘Friendly’ Countries (ET)

A senior Russian government official has threatened to limit exports of agriculture products to “friendly” countries only amid sanctions from Western nations in response to its invasion of Ukraine. Dmitry Medvedev, who previously served as Russia’s president from 2008 to 2012 and is now deputy secretary of the country’s security council, took to Telegram on April 1 where he warned of the potential move. Medvedev said that many counties depend on supplies of food from Russia, a major global wheat exporter, writing: “It turns out that our food is our quiet weapon. Quiet but ominous,” according to Breitbart. “The priority in food supplies is our domestic market. And price control,” he continued. “We will supply food and crops only to our friends (fortunately, we have a lot of them, and they are not at all in Europe and not in North America). We will sell both for rubles and for their national currency in agreed proportions.”

He then explained that Russia would not supply products and agricultural products to those countries it deems as “enemies.” “And we won’t buy anything from them (although we haven’t bought anything since 2014, but the list of products prohibited for import can be further expanded),” he continued. Russia previously imposed a ban on imports of certain agricultural products from the EU and other Western countries in 2014 after its annexation of Crimea. Russia serves as a major global exporter of several commodities, including sunflower oil, barley, and wheat; the latter of which it mainly supplies to Africa and the Middle East. It is the world’s largest exporter of wheat, according to the Observatory of Economic Complexity, having exported $10.1B in wheat in 2020 alone, despite the global COVID-19 pandemic and various supply chain issues.

Grand theft. Ominous.

NATO’s Internal Gold War (Vilches)

Brexitology focused keenly on UK fish but fully ignored the EU´s gigantic gold reserves supposedly still vaulted in custody at the Bank of England. Adding insult to injury, a UK-EU no-deal financial services crash-out divorce went by almost unnoticed… not only without the bang of the still postponed “financial equivalence” protocol… but also without a mere whimper from specialized media and Remainers. Now, the Ukraine crisis with its new payment requirements for the badly needed Russian oil & gas…overlapping with essential yet unfinished Brexit business…will necessarily evolve into a vicious NATO internal gold war. Paraphrasing James Carville spiced with some traditional British flavor, “It´s the bloody gold, stupid”

Rule Britannia As UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson would have it, the physical repatriation of the EU gold supposedly still vaulted in London would “mightily” affect the future of Europe with very deep, high-voltage political impact both sides of the English Channel. In this scenario No.10 Downing Street would easily negotiate the EU gold bullion availability only under specific Brexit conditions favorable to the UK. Actually, doing this could turn out to be absolutely necessary and should go far beyond the enormous intrinsic value of the EU gold supposedly still vaulted at the BoE. Let me explain.

NATO gold in London Russia´s new rubles or gold payment requirements for any of its goods or services will necessarily prompt a major gold war between the UK and the EU probably resulting in NATO´s first-ever internal head-on gloves-off confrontation. After WW2 the idea was to keep Europe´s gold bullion safely away from the former Soviet Union and Josef Stalin, just in case. So decades ago current EU member states deposited most of their gold in custody at the Bank of England (BoE) in London. Now, the UK will dare to weaponize the approval of EU gold repatriation requests and other gold-related issues as a very convincing bargaining tool for lots of still unfinished yet most important Brexit business. So, (a) Whitehall could indefinetly delay the EU gold delivery unless Brexit pending issues are agreed in favor of the UK.

(b) Or, quite simply, the BoE would not ever return such EU gold supposedly kept in custody for the past decades because it has been partially or totally sold off or loaned out or compromised as explained below with former UK Prime Minister James Gordon Brown knowing about it all too well. If history is any guide, hostilities will explode the instant the EU member states individually or collectively rightfully demand a yet-non-existant fully independent world-class functionally detailed audit of the EU gold supposedly still in ´custody´ at the BoE. This should take plenty of time and is the perfect excuse for delaying the whole process always under the exclusive perview of London, not Brussels.

Or unmanageable problems would arise as soon as EU nations require immediate repatriation of at least some of such ´theoretical´ bullion, most probably all of them at the same time in view of circumstances. Then, either (1) some gold could possibly slowly be returned here and there (albeit with great delay ) but only under very vague London terms and changing the unfinished Brexit aftermath to levels yet unheard of, or (2) no gold would be returned as it has been sold off or compromised in different ways as explained hereinafter. And the UK better not decide to pay Russia even with a single gold coin as the EU would rightly wonder who owns it.

“Russia has been the all-purpose hobgoblin that every US agency and many political personages turn to when they are caught doing something nefarious.”

A Theory of the Case (Kunstler)

[..] since the State Department is most of all responsible for the Russian clean-up operation now underway in Ukraine, you can bet that CBS-News is in on the info-grift to protect State, its patron. What Russia had to clean-up was the long-building after-effects of now Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s 2014 engineered Maidan coup against the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych. The issue of that bygone day was a tug-of-war between the US and Russia, with Ukraine as the flag in the middle of the rope. Russia wanted Ukraine in the orbit of its economic “customs union” and the US was affecting to pull Ukraine into the Eurozone and NATO — or, at least, use Ukraine as a forward base for NATO, in order to antagonize Russia.

Russia has been the all-purpose hobgoblin that every US agency and many political personages turn to when they are caught doing something nefarious. When Hillary Clinton’s email trove was purloined through her poorly-defended illegal home server, Russia was to blame. That fiasco spawned the multi-year RussiaGate operation that bamboozled half the nation and ended up tainting the FBI, the DOJ, the FISA Court, and both the House and Senate Intel committees. Then, along came Hunter Biden’s laptop, infamously labeled “Russian disinformation” by every retired senior intel spook still drawing a fat pension. The news about the laptop and its lurid contents was strenuously suppressed by every mainstream media company except The New York Post, and its coverage was banished from Facebook and Twitter which so many Americans rely on for news — an obvious and true conspiracy between government, high tech, and the news media.

All this coincided you understand, with the horror-show official response to Covid-19 coming on the scene at exactly the same time: winter of 2019-2020. By then, half the country had already been groomed into a mass formation psychosis over the RussiaGate narrative that declared President Donald Trump was a stooge for Vladimir Putin… thus, Trump derangement.

“Food inflation in Sri Lanka reached 30%…. things start immediately collapsing.”

Coming soon to a place near you.

Sri Lanka Inflation and Food Crisis Results in Widespread Social Chaos (CTH)

I have stated for the past year ‘the absence of food will change things‘. The inflation and food affordability crisis has now surfaced in Sri Lanka. Global media is paying attention, even sending out warnings about what this might represent for other nations. Sri Lanka has a debt to GDP ratio of 120%, approximately the same as the United States. However, Sri Lanka does not have the benefit of their currency being supported as the global trade currency; therefore, the debt and domestic inflation rate are directly tied together. The rate of food inflation in March has exceeded 30%…. the absence of the public being able to afford food has now surfaced and the government is collapsing. Read the news from Sri Lanka through the prism of what could happen in U.S. cities if we lose the dollar as the global trade currency.

(Via Reuters) – Reuters Breakingviews) – “Sri Lanka’s collapse is front of mind for many. Protesters fed up with crippling shortages of essential food and fuel items are on the streets, prompting multiple members of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s cabinet to offer to resign late on Sunday. Social unrest will probably accelerate a restructuring of some $44 billion of international sovereign debt. Though Sri Lanka’s problems follow years of mismanagement, its speedy unravelling is a warning to sturdier economies from Europe to Asia suddenly grappling with a spike in the cost of living.

A current account crisis read more has intensified after the West fired its sanctions bazooka at Russia as punishment for its invasion of Ukraine. Rolling blackouts and a state of emergency are frightening away remaining tourists, a crucial source of foreign exchange. Food inflation hit an eye-watering 30.2% in March. The currency’s 40% depreciation against the U.S. dollar in one month, including a central bank managed devaluation, is blowing out leverage ratios: Public debt estimated by the International Monetary Fund at 120% of GDP is perhaps some 40 percentage points more than might be deemed sustainable, guesses Citi.

[…] It’s a reminder of the political implications of high prices. Prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, few Asian countries had consumer inflation in double digits. The standouts were Sri Lanka and Pakistan, whose Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday dodged a no-confidence vote and called fresh elections. Poorer countries are more vulnerable to surging global food prices because their populations spend more on food than discretionary items.” Food inflation in Sri Lanka reached 30%…. things start immediately collapsing. Consider the recent projected rate of food inflation in the United States (wave 2, this summer):

Admission of guilt?!

Clinton, DNC Pay FEC Fines in Effort to Bury Story: Kash Patel (ET)

The lead investigator for the House Intelligence Committee’s 2018 probe into the FBI’s investigation of alleged Trump–Russia collusion, Kash Patel, said the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign is paying a penalty to Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an admittance of guilt. Clinton and DNC are doing so to bury the narrative and prevent more media coverage of these illegal activities, said Patel. “I think the public sees what that is. It’s their way of burying the narrative, because if they contested what happens, more media coverage, more people start looking into these things,” Patel said. “So the Hillary Clinton campaign is not contesting it, they’re paying the fine. It’s basically admitting that they did this and they’re out is: ‘we just don’t want a protracted legal deal, as if the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC ever shied away from taking something or someone to court,” Patel added.

Clinton’s campaign and the DNC agreed to pay a combined $113,000 to the FEC, according to documents made public on March 30, after the commission found probable cause that the entities violated federal law by describing payments that ultimately went to the Fusion GPS research group as going toward legal services and consulting. “It shows them how wrong they were to violate the law and spend political campaign dollars on hit job, opposition research pieces for then-candidate Trump, all of which, [to] remind the audience, was then used intentionally by the FBI—even though they knew it was false—to go to a federal secret court and surveil a presidential candidate and later a president of the United States.”

The FEC, which is responsible for overseeing federal elections, including the presidential election, found that the Hillary Clinton campaign broke FEC rules about how donations can be used. “What we knew when we ran the Russiagate investigation, Chairman Nunes and I, we exposed that the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for the Steele dossier, an opposition research hit job. We had proven that some years ago,” said Patel. “What the Coolidge Reagan Foundation did … based on our investigation, said ‘wait a second FEC, you as a political campaign cannot spend political dollars launching opposition research, false or otherwise,’” said Patel.

Dan Backer, an attorney who lodged the complaint with the election commission against the Clinton campaign and the DNC, told The Epoch Times that it’s the first time Clinton “has actually been held accountable for misconduct,” calling the fines “a great step for accountability.” “So they fined them, that’s the FEC’s job. And the Hillary Clinton campaign could have said: ‘We disagree with your finding. We’re going to go to court.’ What did the Hillary Clinton campaign do? … They agreed to the finding of probable cause by the FEC, which means they’re basically agreeing that it happened. … Like we’ve always said, ‘follow the money.’”

Media ‘Caught in a Coverup’ of Hunter Biden’s Laptop Story: Sen. Johnson (ET)

Johnson said that some outlets had participated in “what they call a limited hangout, or in [President Richard] Nixon’s case, a modified limited hangout. You’ve let out just enough information, just enough truth to try to get you by the moment.” A modified limited hangout is a public relations or propaganda technique in which the individual or official involved releases some information that was previously hidden, albeit still retaining important key facts, in an effort to prevent more important details from being exposed. According to former CIA official Victor Marchetti, the technique results in the public being “so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.”

“We can’t allow our intelligence agencies, the Department of Justice, the FBI, or the media to get away with this,” Johnson said. “This is serious business. This is incredible corruption at the highest levels of government and within our media. “We are all being snookered by them. This has been a—from my standpoint—a massive diversionary operation to, you know, to try to take the American public’s attention away from their wrongdoing, their lies, their cover-ups.” He said that “now we have actual bank records that verify what we reported” and that Hunter Biden’s “laptop is obviously a treasure-trove of additional corroborating evidence as well.”

Special counsel required.

‘Big Guy’ Reemerges In Hunter Biden Grand Jury (WE)

A grand jury witness was asked to identify the infamous “big guy” mentioned in discussions regarding a Chinese business deal involving the president’s son Hunter Biden, according to a new report. The question came up after this person, who was not identified, was shown a piece of evidence before the grand jury, located in Wilmington, Delaware, a source told the New York Post. The answer that was given was not reported, though some have claimed the “big guy” is President Joe Biden, raising the prospect that the commander in chief could be drawn into a federal criminal investigation. So far, the White House has been adamant in asserting that the president is not involved and that Hunter Biden, 52, did not commit any crimes.

The New York Post has led the charge in reporting on the contents of an abandoned laptop that is believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden. While other major media outlets sought to cast doubt on its authenticity and Big Tech companies even took steps to suppress its spread in the final weeks of the 2020 election, in recent weeks, the New York Times and Politico have come forth with reports saying at least some of the contents on the laptop have been authenticated. At issue is one particular email, dated May 13, 2017, from investor James Gilliar to himself, Hunter Biden’s business associate Rob Walker, and James and Hunter Biden detailing a “provisional” business deal with a Chinese company called CEFC. The email, in part, asks about “10 held by H for the big guy,” as well as “10” for “Jim.” It appears “H” is a reference to Hunter Biden, “Jim” is Joe Biden’s brother, and “10” is a reference to 10%.

Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, a Navy veteran, corroborated the authenticity of the email in October 2020 and insisted the “big guy” was then-presidential candidate Joe Biden. The Washington Post recently reported on “verified emails illuminating a deal Hunter Biden developed with a fast-growing Chinese energy conglomerate, CEFC China Energy, for which he was paid nearly $5 million, and other business relationships.” The elder Biden has distanced himself from his son’s foreign business dealings. Over the weekend, a White House official claimed the president is certain his son did not break the law or do anything unethical as it relates to China.

“Of course the president is confident that his son didn’t break the law,” Ron Klain, the president’s chief of staff, said during an interview on ABC’s This Week. “But most importantly, as I said, that’s a matter that’s going to be decided by the Justice Department, by the legal process. It’s something that no one at the White House has involvement in.”

No pardon needed without an investigation.

White House Won’t Rule Out Pardon For Hunter, James Biden (ZH)

The White House won’t rule out granting pardons to Hunter Biden or James Biden, the son and brother of President Joe Biden, as investigations over their international dealings heat up. “That’s not a hypothetical I’m going to entertain,” White House communications director Kate Bedingfield told reporters last week when asked during the daily press briefing. “I don’t have anything to add from this podium.” Bedingfield was reluctant to address any aspect of the Hunter Biden story, after CNN, The Washington Post, and the New York Times recently published stories about the federal tax probe into Hunter Biden and his foreign business deals. When asked additional questions about Hunter Biden and the president’s brother James Biden, Bedingfield would only reply, “I don’t have anything further to add from this podium.” -Breitbart

Two weeks ago, the New York Times confirmed Hunter Biden’s controversial laptop exists, and is legit – and confirmed several previously reported aspects of the story, including correspondence between Hunter and his business partner Devon Archer, both of whom served on the board Ukrainian energy giant Burisma. Contained on the laptop were a trove of emails, text messages, photographs and financial documents. Last week, the Washington Post and CNN piled on – with the post reporting on Hunter’s “multimillion-dollar deals with a Chinese energy company,” and CNN running a blistering segment and reporting that the federal investigation into Hunter is ‘heating up.’

A Generation of Toddlers Struggling With Speech and Social Skills (SN)

Lockdown restrictions, including adults wearing face masks, has left a generation of babies and toddlers struggling with speech and social skills, according to an official report. Inspectors working for Ofsted found that infants being surrounded by adults wearing face masks for significant periods of time over the last two years has damaged their learning and communication abilities. Those turning two “will have been surrounded by adults wearing masks for their whole lives and have therefore been unable to see lip movements or mouth shapes as regularly,” the report found. “Some providers have reported that delays to children’s speech and language development have led to them not socialising with other children as readily as they would have expected previously,” it added.

The restrictions also left toddlers struggling with crawling, using the toilet independently and making friends. Delays in learning had also regressed some children to the stage where they needed help with basic tasks such as putting on their coats and blowing their noses. “I’m particularly worried about younger children’s development which, if left unaddressed, could potentially cause problems for primary schools down the line,” said chief inspector Amanda Spielman. We previously highlighted another study out of Germany which found that the reading ability of children has plummeted compared to pre-COVID times thanks to lockdown policies that led to the closure of schools. Speech therapist Jaclyn Theek said that mask wearing during the pandemic has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers. “They’re not making any word attempts and not communicating at all with their family,” she said, adding that symptoms of autism are also skyrocketing.

    The tulip fields are lovely; the world today is not…

    Dr. D

    I noted RaboBank’s review before, but this was exceptional this week. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/rabobank-anyone-thinking-zelenskiy-about-sign-peace-deal-making-territorial-concessions
    We expect center-mainstream progressive views, but this was amazing – and possibly IS mainstream. Coming out after Bucha, complete credulity, childish lack of suspicion for anything said in a war zone. Even aside from the other events that if you followed (as a trading desk should) appear to be faked, they not only believe Ukraine universally on the mere accusation, but say “someone should look into this” – showing they know no one has looked into it – and STILL simply believes one side, when two sides disagree and the event hasn’t been looked at. Could you suck more d—s than this? I’m not asking the world, and expect them to be partisan to the West, but ANY thing said is simply true? If Ze says Putin is a lizard from outer space, is it now true? (A: yes. My side right or wrong. This is “our war” Nancy and the gang sez)

    Adding more such lies about every paragraph. He dismisses the idea that Putin has no Soviet aspirations or designs in the Baltics as ludicrous. …Although it’s been 20 years with him doing nothing. So Putin’s been sitting in an armchair and a resort, THINKING about conquering the Baltics, doing nothing about it even now, and you know this how?

    Of course in a war, they brought body bags. To RaboBank, that means they were planning mass genocide executions of Ukrainians. Because…wars are safe and no one dies otherwise? It’s the only explanation?

    Noting a Polish massacre from 100 years ago. Geez, sir, if you cover every event over the last 100 years can you note the U.S. nuked two civilian cities, just ‘cause Japan wasn’t snappy enough? Then made the entire nations of Bikini islands radioactive, killing their own sailors too? The Brits firebombed every civilian area in Dresden? Canada probably killed (or worse) 22,000 Indian kids since then, that’s only 220 a year. Yeah, I’m sure if Stalin did it therefore it’s identical now. Just like if Lincoln did it, we’re doing it today.

    Anyone who questions this extreme and absurd point of view are merely PutinNazis, puppets of “Kompromat”; he specifically says you are not allowed to talk about history or context or you’re the enemy, dismissed.

    On Bucha, he says, “Indeed, fresh outrage sees talk of Germany possibly pushing for sanctions on Russian gas.”

    So you’re sanctioning….yourself? I literally don’t understand. “We are going to stop life for every German in the nation until Russia comes to heel. We will keep killing Germans for as long as it takes to subdue Russia!” …Except he already knows by Monday that Germany is buying gas with rubles.

    After that, he recommends that Russia doesn’t believe NATO’s self-defense. Therefore we need to attack Russia to Prove we’re serious. Wow, okay. Really? Great plan, did you talk to any generals about it?

    on Bloomberg, an op-ed argues ‘To Save Democracy, We Need a Few Good Dictators’,

    We kill Ukraine to save Ukraine, we kill Democracy to save Democracy. Too late: it’s already dead.

    Other genius? “CNY is not a commodity currency: it is a currency entirely dependent on imported commodities.”

    Wow. True. Except that they use the commodities to make manufactured goods. That nobody else makes. It’s the same principle of commodity currency, stupid way to dismiss it.

    He also says REAL Power is about “Controlling the pricing”. O rly? And does NY look like it’s controlling the pricing of wheat and gas right now? Is China “going to build an empire when the US Navy still controls which commodities go where at sea, globally?” Oh so you admit you’re controlling, sinking, and going to hot war to control and colonize other nations. THAT’S the only thing the U.S. has. Okay then, did you ever hear of “Asia”? And “Railroads”? What happens if they stop selling to L.A. and sell the goods from Seoul to Ankara and Minsk? Do you control that, you fool?

    He does say this though: “At the very least, anyone thinking President Zelenskiy is about to sign a peace deal making territorial and security concessions is again delusional.”

    And so the war cannot end as those concessions are for areas already lost, that they haven’t controlled in ten – or forty — years. This is by demand of the West that Ukraine will someday re-invade and take Crimea from them, and thus – as their open promise – is to have an unending, murderous civilian war in Ukraine for a decade or more. …We must kill every Ukrainian to save Ukraine. Oh the Children! The Children! That we directly openly said we are going to engineer an open war zone for, for the rest of their lives.

    There’s a lot more dumb, dumb stuff there from Schmartz peoples, but you can read it for yourself.

    What is this about removing Russia from the UN Security Council? Okay, well then you’d have a“Some Nations” Organization and committee. It would stop the UN from being the legal cover for 20 illegal U.S. wars of aggression with white phosphorus and depleted uranium though, after stealing their gold on a cargo plane. I looked into it, surprisingly it’s possible if 2/3 of the nations agree. Which they won’t, so I guess the Anglos like losing. Losing is the new #Winning! We’re winning the Twitter war!

    “Russia Threatens to Limit Exports of Ag Products to ‘Friendly’ Countries (ET)”

    Threatens? Russia threatens not to get paid in a currency they can’t use by those nations prosecuting a major billion-dollar war on them? While still feeding everybody else? Yes, how dare Hitler not continue to feed Churchill after Dunkirk. We oughta go to war over that! With the nickel and oil they got!

    “NATO’s Internal Gold War (Vilches)”

    They trusted the British with the EU’s gold? Well you’re never going to see that again. It was worth the whole sham of pretending to be European, then all the dismal chaos of exiting just to steal it. As the Brits have done…many times. Hey, remember that great time the Tsar loaned a couple bil in gold to London then suddenly had a funny NY-led revolution at home? Weird, huh?

    Note, there was a theory by FOFOA that the EU had a plan when this final reset happened, to back the Euro fully with gold and make it an equal gold rider in competition. To the fiat US$ debt note, and even in this case the Russia/China commodity note. No gold = no salvation. But we figured that as to pull it off they need high sovereignty over the member states, armies, financial trading floors, etc, that they couldn’t be bothered with: it’s work. And they suck so bad and attack their own member states so much no one will vote for them. We just get our $300k Euros/mo to fly on tax-free private jets to see Greta.

    “We are all being snookered by them.”

    Who is this ‘we’? They are “Congressmen” and “families of Congressmen”. We just assume they are massively corrupt, murdering, drug-smoking, self-serving bastards and are never wrong yet. How did you think a junior congresswoman from CA arrives in 6 digits and is a multi-millionaire before her first term ends? Pay is like $100k, yet the Obamas own 5 mansions after earning a mere $800k. For one example, and not the worst.

    “Hunter was squeezing BOTH Ukrainian and Russian Oligarchs”

    Still uninterested: Hunter gets, what, $6M from the mayor of Moscow for something? That’s a lot of money in that area. No one bats an eye. Nothing happened, why you so uptight? How is Hunter and Smokin’ Joe not PutinPuppets? Nope! Cuz I says so!!! All for me, none for thee. The only Justice is Power.

    No one is arrested, because we don’t do that on any day ending in “Y”.

    Questions Abound About Bucha Massacre

    My comment
    False flag

    Go to the links supplied by TAE and read the comment on those blogs.
    You will realize that what you want to say has already been said.
    The Azov Battalion may have perpetrated revenge killings against Russian collaborators, or the Russians carried out this massacre.”

    Or both, and the Ukrainians are blaming the Russians for all the killings. Maybe some killings are true and some are staged, and they are exaggerating the numbers and blaming it all on the Russians to bolster their dirty propaganda.

    However, in these cases, I have a simple rule of thumb that never failed me: look at who the dead were, to know who probably killed them and why. The Ukrainians authorities have not published the IDs of the deceased, so they are clearly hiding something and that smells fishy.

    They trusted the British with the EU’s gold? Well you’re never going to see that again. It was worth the whole sham of pretending to be European, then all the dismal chaos of exiting just to steal it. As the Brits have done…many times.

    Yep, learned nothing from the long, sordid history of UK/Euro courts of intrigue. Not a thing. I suggest they start with the 100 years war.

    But we’re not medieval in 2022, we’ve accepted LGBTQ! They’re even teaching our children now!

    Besides, we’ve got Eurasian witches to burn. Who needs those “barbarous relics” anyways? We’re so schmartz we don’t even workz, that’s what game theory & The Science is for…

    It’s hopeless. All of the democratic, populace reforms established following the American Revolution were wiped out in 1914 when “they” started marching millions of boys into trenches. Over a psychopath families lust for more money & power.

    I don’t know which is worse; The religion of Vatican appointed Kings, or the religion of woke anointed SJWs…

    After reflecting on my previous post, I began to wonder if even after 90+% of humanity is destroyed, will the remnant have learned anything? 😕




    Wordpress is acting up on the image tag again



    I have not had time to chase the details down but I read a tidbit about how Germany’s contracts for gas with Russia were done thru a subsidiary of Gazprom in Germany.

    In the sanctions frenzy, Gasprom abandoned this subsidary and Germany threaten to ‘nationalize and/or confiscate it’.


    That’s rich!

    Because Russia is hinting that ALL of Germany’s contracts for Russian gas are now null and void and that Germany not only has to pay in Rubles, it now has to completely renegotiate the terms of the contracts.

    Germany has instituted a new Kubler-Ross Grief Cycle sixth stage (see below)


    Pay in Rubles

    Hahahaa! Sweet!



    Watching the RT / Scott Ritter video, I think the jeeps driving down the road around bodies looks a lot like a video war game sequence… l lot like a video game. Very odd.


    Also, I don’t think that all that burnt out Russian equipment was Destroyed by the Ukraine attacks.
    I suspect that most of it was destroyed by Russia because they could not drive them back due to mechanical or other problems.


    Here is the time line according to RT news
    Russia and Ukraine trade accusations over Bucha civilian deaths (TIMELINE)



    Local authorities in Donbass are gathering information on casualties from the explosion
    Retreating Ukrainian forces have blown up a tank allegedly containing hydrochloric acid, at a chemical plant in the eastern town of Rubezhnoe, which has emerged as a flashpoint in the ongoing conflict. The tank explosion was aimed at affecting the populated areas of the Lugansk People’s Republic, controlled by the local fighters, the republic’s militia said on Tuesday.
    The incident occurred on Tuesday at the ‘Zarya’ chemical plant, once one of Ukraine’s leading chemical enterprises. Videos reportedly taken at the scene and published by the RIA news agency show thick, orange-tinged smoke billowing over the area, which has some residential buildings.

    In early March, Moscow warned the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about potential false-flag attacks staged by the Ukrainian radicals that might involve the use of toxic chemical agents. “Ukrainian radical groups aided by the American security services have developed several potential scenarios of using toxic chemicals to stage various false flag attacks,” Russia’s statement to the OPCW said at that time.


    Russia presents new evidence on Ukraine biolabs, comments on links to Biden and US
    Documents detail fate of US-funded deadly pathogens that may have been tested on Ukrainian

    The Russian military has presented documents showing Ukraine’s interest in using drones to deliver weaponized pathogens developed in US-funded biolabs. Names of US officials involved in the biolabs projects, and the role the current US president’s son played in the program, were also made public during the special briefing on Thursday.

    One of the key pieces of evidence was a letter from the Ukrainian company Motor Sich to the Turkish drone manufacturer Baykar Makina – makers of the Bayraktar TB2 and Akinci UAVs – dated December 15, 2021. The Ukrainians specifically asked if the drones could carry 20 liters of aerosolized payload to a range of 300 kilometers – putting them in range of a dozen major Russian cities and almost all of Belarus.

    “We are talking about the development by the Kiev regime of technical means of delivery and use of biological weapons with the possibility of their use against the Russian Federation,” said Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, commander of the Russian Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces.

    Kirillov said that Hunter Biden – son of the current US President Joe Biden – played “an important role in creating a financial opportunity to work with pathogens on the territory of Ukraine,” pointing to several emails between him and executives of Metabiota and Black and Veatch. In particular, he described the Metabiota VP as “a confidant of Hunter Biden,” based on their correspondence. According to the general, the “Western media” has confirmed the authenticity of these emails – presumably a reference to materials published last week by the British newspaper the Daily Mail. ( see link)

    EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden DID help secure millions in funding for US contractor in Ukraine specializing in deadly pathogen research, laptop emails reveal, raising more questions about the disgraced son of then vice president.

    The Russian government held a press conference Thursday claiming that Hunter Biden helped finance a US military ‘bioweapons’ research program in Ukraine
    However the allegations were branded a brazen propaganda ploy to justify president Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and sow discord in the US
    But emails and correspondence obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show the claims may well be true
    The emails show Hunter helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases
    He also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a ‘science project’ involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine
    The president’s son and his colleagues invested $500,000 in Metabiota through their firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners
    They raised several million dollars of funding for the company from investment giants including Goldman Sachs

    “But there are a lot of bio-labs in N. Italy” (from a post of mine)

    I was not aware of this. Isn’t that where they had their largest outbreak? I do remember articles in early 2020 stating some towns in northern italy were essentially Chinese due to the large number of workers in the area. – Mr House.

    Yes the most severe outbreak of Cov19 was in the North.

    I was just going from what is “known” (? heh ) there in Lombardy and the Piemont.

    I just looked up bio-labs in Italy, and of course there are more in the N, industrial area, etc. in contrast to the South. What exactly these Bio-labs are doing is not clear (to an ordinary person.) Below link, of level-4 biolabs (world), not complete imho, but gives an idea. One in Rome, one in N. Italy. (If time I will look further.)

    Italy has ‘regionalised’ health care and ‘health facilities’ and ‘health whatever you like to lodge under that rubric’, like labs, which means that locals can more or less run what they like…with whatever funding..

    As for N. Italy and Chinese workers, the clothing, shoes, handbag, other, manufacture is for a large part produced by Chinese workers in Italian factories and ‘villages’ or ‘areas’ (compounds) which you won’t see if you go on a Gastronomic Tour or Visit Museums in Milan!

    In short, this industry was not ‘outsourced’ to China, but Chinese workers were ‘imported’ to do the work, because of control / certification (of materials as well) / provenance considerations. There are Chinese schools, Chinese community cultural thingies, but it is all a quite hidden, and the Chinese there aren’t integrated. For ex. young ppl are sent back to China to marry, then bring their spouse back to Italy…

    The Chinese are basically ignored – but not exploited, as foreign, Chinese, ownership of Italian based cos. is 100% legal, since, iirc middle 90’s. (Or if exploited, only by their Chinese bosses..)

    The decade of the 1990s was the only short period when a weak Russia was de facto ruled from within by US-appointed and supported politicians. Even then, the most pro-western Russian leader in history Boris Yeltsin famously told the United States that an eastward expansion of NATO would lead to a military confrontation. President Putin has repeated that refrain dozens of times over the past two decades he has been in power. This conflict has now come to be — it is impossible that the West will be pacified except in the realisation of openly expressed fantasies about the assassination or forceful removal of President Putin.

    C.J. Hopkins gives us an update on COVID1984 from New Normal Germany and a recap of GloboCap as he understands it after 2+ years of medical tyranny. What GloboCap is doing now is “clearing and holding” or identifying all sources of global insurgency and resistance to its global occupation and wiping them out in order to implement its new program. Regarding the debate on Putin and the WEF, he says it’s not a Marvel comic book and that we’re dealing with a much more complicated constellation of power dynamics, even though Russia and China are integrated with global capitalism. We discuss Covid fatigue and the increasing global persecution against “COVID deniers”, “Russian agents”, and dissidents. Even though the Covidian Cult is dissolving, the New Normal has been cemented into society and it isn’t going away, reality is being revised. He believes the digital pass systems will be imposed on us. He stresses the importance of resisting and also thinks bugging out isn’t a bad idea.

    Less than a month ago, business magazine Forbes reported that a national vaccine pass has already been rolled out in the U.S. The SMART Health Card offers verifiable digital proof of several aspects of health status including vaccination history and test results. It’s available in either digital or paper form. The cards can be purchased at any facility that has your medical records. According to the SMART website, the Health Card can be used in order to document vaccine status for school registration, work, or travel – government and corporate officials can just scan the barcode on your phone screen and you are good to go.

    European markets were mixed on Tuesday as western allies pile further pressure on Moscow after reported Russian atrocities in Bucha, outside Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

    The FTSE 100 (^FTSE) rose 0.4% amid talks of more sanctions and higher oil prices. France’s CAC (^FCHI) was 1.5% lower and the DAX (^GDAXI) fell 0.8% in Germany.

    The European Union is ready to launch a fifth package of embargoes against Russia, including an import ban on coal worth €4bn ($4,4bn, £3.3bn) per year, a block on transactions with four of its lenders, and the closure of its ports to Russian vessels.


    Space imaging company Maxar Technologies published satellite images over the weekend that appear to show earthworks of a mass grave in the wake of the withdrawing Russian army at Bucha, Ukraine.

    Reuters (MI6) reported on Sunday its journalists on the ground in Bucha had witnessed a mass grave at a church, but could not confirm if it was the same site that Maxar’s satellites pictured.

    Neverending enthusiasm for more and more wars:

    “[E]nthusiasm for war remains high, as if over 70 years of failed military interventions have not taught any meaningful lessons. Daily, news headlines tell us that the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Germany, Spain or some other Western power have decided to ship a new kind of “lethal weapons” to Ukraine. Billions of dollars have already been allocated by Western countries to contribute to the war in Ukraine. …

    … Ukraine needs peace and security, not perpetual war that is designed to serve the strategic interests of certain countries or military alliances. Though military invasions must be wholly rejected, whether in Iraq or Ukraine, turning Ukraine into another convenient zone of perpetual geopolitical struggle between NATO and Russia is not the answer.

    I often wonder what I will do if someone tries to force me to do something I know I must not do.


    I have wondered if Putin is the only adult in the room or just the “good cop” in an interrogation. This debate was interesting- Luongo is always the optimist- like Dr. D, he believes humans being humans will overcome monsters being monsters.


    The bad guys are inexorable;
    They never will give in.
    They have the small majority
    And using them, they’ll win.

    Don’t let them.


    This Ukrainian War to the last Ukrainian.

    This slow war has some rather unique features to it.
    Since the Ukrainians are not going anywhere, the Russians can take their sweet time about this war.
    The Russians are invading with less than 1/3rd of the defending force.
    With so much time, the Ukrainian Prez has been making a grand propaganda tour of the world via Zoom.
    Ukrainian’s Hollyweird producers have been busy planting fake false flags that keep falling down!
    Russia’s go slow war gives Nato more time to win the propaganda war.
    The Ukrainian army is losing the ground war, but this doesn’t matter.
    The Ukrainian army having no eyes or ears of their own, now rely 100% upon Nato’s eyes and ears.
    The Ukrainian government and army are being 100% remote controlled by Nato controllers.
    Ukrainian artillery depends upon Nato to locate Russian targets!
    Natio has been very busy flying drones 24/7 all along Ukraine’s land and Black Sea borders.
    Nato is only interested in winning the propaganda war, the longer the better.
    Nato considers the Ukrainians to be all expendable!
    Russia is trying to get as many Ukrainians to surrender rather than kill them.
    Nato won’t let the Ukrainians surrender.
    The Neo-Nazis in Marupol are slowly but surely being reduced.
    Nato is forcing people in the west to pay the price for this war that Nato started.
    Everybody “thinks” the next Russian objective, is finishing off the Donbas cauldron.
    There are no “Troy Ounces” involved in any of the above!
    This isn’t your Dad’s war!


    My Wife mentioned that Putin’s face appears more swollen or rounder and she is wondering if he might be suffering from thyroid cancer as he has a doctor with him 24/7. Some are saying he looks tired.
    I would think waging an unwanted war would be stressful enough to make one very tired too.
