Biden Wanted $33B More For Ukraine. Congress Raised it to $40B (Greenwald)

From the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, the Biden White House has repeatedly announced large and seemingly random amounts of money that it intends to send to fuel the war in Ukraine. The latest such dispatch of large amounts of U.S. funds, pursuant to an initial $3.5 billion fund authorized by Congress early on, was announced on Friday; “Biden says U.S. will send $1.3 billion in additional military and economic support to Ukraine,” read the CNBC headline. This was preceded by a series of new lavish spending packages for the war, unveiled every two to three weeks, starting on the third day of the war:

Feb. 26: “Biden approves $350 million in military aid for Ukraine”: Reuters; Mar. 16: “Biden announces $800 million in military aid for Ukraine”: The New York Times; Mar. 30: “Ukraine to receive additional $500 million in aid from U.S., Biden announces”: NBC News; Apr. 12: “U.S. to announce $750 million more in weapons for Ukraine, officials say”: Reuters; May 6: “Biden announces new $150 million weapons package for Ukraine”: Reuters. Those amounts by themselves are in excess of $3 billion; by the end of April, the total U.S. expenditure on the war in Ukraine was close to $14 billion, drawn from the additional $13.5 billion Congress authorized in mid-March. While some of that is earmarked for economic and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine, most of it will go into the coffers of the weapons industry — including Raytheon, on whose Board of Directors the current Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, sat immediately before being chosen by Biden to run the Pentagon.

As CNN put it: “about $6.5 billion, roughly half of the aid package, will go to the US Department of Defense so it can deploy troops to the region and send defense equipment to Ukraine.” As enormous as those sums already are, they were dwarfed by the Biden administration’s announcement on April 28 that it “is asking Congress for $33 billion in funding to respond to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than double the $14 billion in support authorized so far.” The White House itself acknowledges that the vast majority of that new spending package will go to the purchase of weaponry and other military assets: “$20.4 billion in additional security and military assistance for Ukraine and for U.S. efforts to strengthen European security in cooperation with our NATO allies and other partners in the region.”

It is difficult to put into context how enormous these expenditures are — particularly since the war is only ten weeks old, and U.S. officials predict/hope that this war will last not months but years. That ensures that the ultimate amounts will be significantly higher still.

“The ‘Boys from Davos’ plot out the future of the world.”

Lithuania Lawmakers: Russian Actions in Ukraine ‘Genocide’, ‘Terrorism’ (R.)

Lithuania’s parliament voted unanimously on Tuesday to describe Russia’s actions in Ukraine as “genocide” and “terrorism” and to call for a international tribunal, modelled on the Nuremberg Trials after World War Two, to prosecute suspected war crimes. The motion, co-sponsored by Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte, said Russian forces’ war crimes in Ukraine included the deliberate killing of civilians, mass rape, forcible relocation of Ukrainian citizens to Russia and the destruction of economic infrastructure and cultural sites. Moscow denies targeting civilians and calls its invasion, launched on Feb. 24, a “special military operation” to disarm Ukraine and rid it of what it calls anti-Russian nationalists. Ukraine and the West say this is a false pretext for waging an unprovoked war of aggression.


“The Russian Federation, whose military forces deliberately and systematically select civilian targets for bombing, is a state that supports and perpetrates terrorism,” the Lithuanian parliamentary motion said. Lithuania’s move follows a similar unanimous vote by Canadian lawmakers on April 27 to call Russia’s attacks in Ukraine a “genocide”. Leonid Slutsky, head of the International Affairs Committee of Russia’s lower house of parliament, said the resolution was not legally binding and that it merely repeated what he called the United States’ Russophobic views. He said the resolution was part of an “anti-Russia project” and biased actions against Russia that “have nothing to do with reality,” the TASS news agency cited him as saying.

Ukraine Halts Some Russian Gas Flows, Claims Battlefield Gains (R.)

Flows of Russian gas to Europe through a key transit point in Ukraine dried up on Wednesday, while Kyiv claimed battlefield gains over invading Russian forces, including the recapture of four villages around the second city of Kharkiv. Ukraine has remained a major route for Russian gas to Europe even after President Vladimir Putin ordered what he called a “special military operation” on Feb. 24. Mounting Western sanctions are seeking to ban or phase out the use of Russian energy, a major source of funds for Putin’s war effort and a vulnerability for Europe, especially Germany. Blaming the interference of Russian occupying forces for the suspension, Ukraine’s gas operator said on Tuesday it would redirect gas from the Sokhranivka transit point, which is in an area occupied by Russian forces, to another in a Ukraine-controlled area.

Early Wednesday data from the network operator showed zero nominations for Russian gas through the transit point. Since Russia was forced to abandon an assault on the capital Kyiv at the end of March, its main force has been trying to encircle Ukrainian troops in the eastern Donbas region, using the city of Izyum near Kharkiv, in the northeast, as a base. Ukrainian troops have mostly held out against assaults from three directions, and top U.S. intelligence officials say the war is now at a stalemate. Putin appeared to be preparing for a long conflict, and a Russian victory in the Donbas region might not end the war, U.S. Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said in Washington on Tuesday. But the counterattack near Kharkiv could signal a new phase, with Ukraine going on the offensive and supply lines into Russia now potentially vulnerable.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Ukrainian successes were gradually pushing Russian forces out of Kharkiv, which has been under bombardment since the war began. “But I also want to urge all our people … not to spread excessive emotions. We should not create an atmosphere of excessive moral pressure, where victories are expected weekly and even daily,” Zelenskiy said in a video address.

Are We Pfinding Pfizer Pfraud? -Part 1 (Gato Malo)

The pfizer data dumps are massive and disordered. They drop 50k pages without regard to completeness or order. Here, have a huge box of who knows what! This is a longstanding legal trick. And it works well. It’s the time honored fashion in which big companies bury small legal teams and create a $3 million bill just to sort and read the stuff. But here’s a fun little wrinkle: this time is not going to be like that. Battalions of interested parties are all over it. The documents are posted and reading and sorting them is crowdsourced. And many hands make for light work. And a lot of very skilled sleuths are at work here. No law firm in history has ever had an expert team like this. Never. The FDA and pfizer fought tooth and claw NOT to release this. I have ZERO doubt that they are dumping all the least awful and incriminating things first.


Keep in mind these folks wanted to take 75 years to disclose this. Only a court order pried it loose. But even with this first set of boxes, it’s starting to become apparent why they did not want anyone poking around. They knew all sorts of things they failed to disclose and many are doing good work on this. But what if the trial itself was pfraud? Because that would be seismic. It would not only severely implicate the FDA and pfizer alike, it would likely invalidate the liability protection granted under EUA and suddenly bourla and his merry band of vaxx aficionados might find themselves accountable. Bigly. And wouldn’t that be interesting? So if this looks like a plausible possibility, we really ought to dig in like busy little mice and see what all we can winkle out. Fortunately, some busy little mice have already been doing so. and what they found is, well, pfrightening.

“..1223 people died within 90 days of taking the Pfizer jab..”

Say Pfizer’s own docs. But no lack of reports saying they do not.

The Covid Vaccine Boomerang (Maajid Nawaz)

Initially, the FDA took a strange step on behalf of Pfizer by demanding a full 75 years before releasing any of their vaccine trial data. Euronews reports: “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it now needs 75 years to fully release Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data to the public – twenty years more than it originally agreed on November 15.” So strange was this attempt, that a judge then had to order the FDA to release the Pfizer data: Reuters reports: “Jan 7 – Score one for transparency. A federal judge in Texas on Thursday ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make public the data it relied on to license Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, imposing a dramatically accelerated schedule that should result in the release of all information within about eight months.”


So why did Pfizer and the FDA want to hide their data for 75 years? This week, the first batch of that judge-ordered data was released. Despite predictable media spin disguised as “fact-checking”, the basic and rather shocking revelation that 1233 people died within 90 days of taking the Pfizer jab is true. This is contained within Pfizer’s own adverse events report:

The public and smaller media outlets are finally beginning to wake up to the extent of the problem caused by the experimental mRNA jab in particular. Unherd cites: “On the other hand, Stabell-Benn and her colleagues found no statistically meaningful evidence in the trial data that the mRNA vaccines reduced all-cause mortality. The numbers of deaths from other causes including cardiovascular deaths appear to be increased in this group, compensating for the beneficial effect of the vaccines on Covid” No wonder Pfizer would rather pull out of countries entirely than to allow independent testing of their mRNA jab, locally. Reuters reports: “NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Pfizer Inc said on Friday it had withdrawn an application for emergency-use authorisation of its COVID-19 vaccine in India, after failing to meet the drug regulator’s demand for a local safety and immunogenicity study.”

Immunologist, virologist and the inventor of mRNA technology, Dr Robert Malone summarises the latest developments with Pfizer’s data here: “In my opinion withholding scientific data constitutes fraud, this is scientific fraud in my opinion. If I was to publish a study, in which I had a large body of epidemiological data, and I decided to only publish part of it, because I wanted to advance some agenda, I would be guilty of scientific fraud, the paper would be withdrawn, I would be kicked out of my academic institution. I would be guilty of scientific fraud. That’s what this is. And the CDC..I’ve watched it over the years become more and more and more a political arm, and not serving its function…They no longer release that detailed information.. they have become purely a political organisation, an arm of the Executive Branch and what they have done is in my opinion obscene.

And it is part of what’s under lied the attacks that Peter and I have sustained from the press.. if you think about it, the underlying thesis is: ‘well the CDC didn’t say that, so you’re spreading medical misinformation,’ but now we learn who’s really been spreading medical misinformation is the CDC. I think we’re all owed an apology… I think that this data that they have been withholding …it is a ton of information, they’ve been intentionally withholding it, that’s why we’ve been attacked, it is unjust… it turns out we have been completely vindicated. We have been speaking truth, and it’s a truth that has been hidden from the American public, and more importantly it’s been hidden from other physicians, and it’s been hidden from public health authorities..” Dr Robert Malone.

We know from Pfizer docs that their “vaccine” was never tested on pregnant women, only on 44 rats. So all reports this below is based on is about guinea pigs, tests taking place after it was said to be safe and effective, though nobody could have known that.

Covid Vaccines Safe For Pregnant Women, Cut Stillbirth Risk – Review (G.)

Doctors have stressed the importance of Covid vaccinations for pregnant women after a major review found the shots were not only safe, but reduced the risk of stillbirth by 15%. Researchers at St George’s, University of London, and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists analysed 23 published studies and trials that enrolled 117,552 pregnant women vaccinated against Covid, to assess the safety of the shots. The vast majority of the women received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, which provided 89.5% protection against Covid infection seven days after the second dose. There was no evidence of greater risk from miscarriage, preterm birth or other pregnancy complications.

“We wanted to see if vaccination was safe or not for pregnant women,” said Asma Khalil, professor of obstetrics and maternal fetal medicine at St George’s hospital in London. “It is safe, but what’s surprising, and it’s a positive finding, is that there was a reduction in stillbirths.” “So far, most of the data on vaccines in pregnancy have been about protecting the pregnant woman herself from Covid. Now we have evidence that the vaccines protect the baby too,” she added. The results are published in Nature Communications.

Almost all pregnant women admitted to UK hospitals for Covid treatment are unvaccinated. And while vaccine uptake among pregnant women rose from 23% in August to 54% at the end of last year, doctors believe thousands are still unvaccinated. In December, the UK government’s vaccine watchdog, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, made pregnant women a priority group for jabs after studies found women were more likely to become seriously ill if they caught Covid while pregnant.

FDA: Youngest Kids Vaccine Won’t Need To Hit 50% Efficacy Mark (EP)

The FDA’s top vaccine leader told a congressional committee on Friday afternoon that although the adult vaccines had to meet a 50% threshold for efficacy against Covid-19 infections, that same standard will not need to be met for the vaccines for the youngest group of children, for which a vaccine is not yet available. The agency is currently reviewing data from Moderna’s two-shot vaccine for this youngest group as it awaits further data from Pfizer on its potential three-dose shot. The agency previously scheduled and then canceled an adcomm to review data on two doses of Pfizer’s vaccine for children under the age of 5.

According to a readout of the meeting from the House select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis, Marks explained that the FDA would not withhold authorization — despite previous guidance — for a pediatric vaccine solely because it did not reach a 50% efficacy threshold at blocking symptomatic infections. All of the other adult and children’s vaccines currently authorized in the US have lost significant amounts of efficacy due to the Omicron variant, but they still remain effective at reducing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization and death. “If these vaccines seem to be mirroring efficacy in adults and just seem to be less effective against Omicron like they are for adults, we will probably still authorize,” Marks said.

Meanwhile, Marks directly addressed concerns that the agency might slow-play the Moderna application and wait to review both applications together, saying that the VRBPAC meetings set for next month will be moved up if necessary. “Obviously if we get through reviews faster, then we will send them to committees sooner,” Marks said, according to Rep. Jim Clyburn’s account of the meeting. Marks also told Clyburn and his staff that VRBPAC members have reserved earlier dates, enabling FDA to potentially “move dates up even by a week for any of these reviews.” But he also explained that reviewing these vaccines for the youngest children involves more “complexity” than the review of adult vaccines, and the agency’s review process may require more time.

He also said that the emergence of new variants made the process of reviewing vaccines more complex, explaining it “was a little simpler for the original submissions in late 2020 when we didn’t have the variants and tons of immunogenicity data to go through.

$350 Million in Secret Payments to Fauci, Collins, Others at NIH Uncovered (ET)

An estimated $350 million in undisclosed royalties were paid to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hundreds of its scientists, including the agency’s recently departed director, Dr. Francis Collins, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a nonprofit government watchdog. “We estimate that up to $350 million in royalties from third parties were paid to NIH scientists during the fiscal years between 2010 and 2020,” Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told reporters in a telephone news conference on May 9. “We draw that conclusion because, in the first five years, there has been $134 million that we have been able to quantify of top-line numbers that flowed from third-party payers, meaning pharmaceutical companies or other payers, to NIH scientists.”

The first five years, from 2010 to 2014, constitute 40 percent of the total, he said. “We now know that there are 1,675 scientists that received payments during that period, at least one payment. In fiscal year 2014, for instance, $36 million was paid out and that is on average $21,100 per scientist,” Andrzejewski said. “We also find that during this period, leadership at NIH was involved in receiving third-party payments. For instance, Francis Collins, the immediate past director of NIH, received 14 payments. Dr. Anthony Fauci received 23 payments and his deputy, Clifford Lane, received eight payments.” Collins resigned as NIH director in December 2021 after 12 years of leading the world’s largest public health agency.

Fauci is the longtime head of NIH’s National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), as well as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. Lane is the deputy director of NIAID, under Fauci. The top five NIH employees measured in terms of the number of royalty payments that they received while on the government payroll, according to a fact sheet published by Open the Books, include Robert Gallo, National Cancer Institute, 271 payments; Ira Pastan, National Cancer Institute, 250 payments; Mikulas Popovic, National Cancer Institute, 191 payments; Flossie Wong-Staal, National Cancer Institute, 190 payments; and Mangalasseril Sarngadharan, National Cancer Institute, 188 payments. Only Pastan continues to be employed by NIH, according to Open the Books.

“If the WHO says every person on the planet needs to have a vaccine passport and digital identity to ensure vaccination compliance, then that’s what every country will be forced to implement, even if the people have rejected such plans using local democratic processes.”

WHO Pandemic Treaty: What It Is, Why It Matters and How to Stop It (Mercola)

As noted by anti-extremism activist Maajid Nawaz in an April 28 Twitter post, the “WHO pandemic treaty serves as a backdoor to global empire.” COVID-19, while potentially deadly to certain vulnerable groups, simply isn’t a valid justification for handing over more power to the WHO, especially in light of its many inexplicable “mistakes” in this and previous pandemics. As just one example, the WHO didn’t publicly admit SARS-CoV-2 was airborne until the end of December 2021, yet scientists knew the virus was airborne within weeks of the pandemic being declared. The WHO also ignored early advice about airborne transmission. So, it seems clear that the effort to now hand over more power to the WHO is about something other than them being the most qualified to make health decisions that benefit and protect everyone.

It seems far more likely that the WHO is being installed as a de facto governing body for the global Deep State. Through the WHO, under the guise of biosecurity, the globalist cabal who seek to own everything and control everyone will then be able to implement their wishes across the whole world in one fell swoop. With this treaty in place, all member nations will be subject to the WHO’s dictates. If the WHO says every person on the planet needs to have a vaccine passport and digital identity to ensure vaccination compliance, then that’s what every country will be forced to implement, even if the people have rejected such plans using local democratic processes.

[..] Under the guise of a global pandemic, the WHO, the World Economic Forum and all its installed leaders in government and private business were able to roll out a plan that had already been decades in the making. The pandemic was a perfect cover. In the name of keeping everyone “safe” from infection, the globalists justified unprecedented attacks on democracy, civil liberties and personal freedoms, including the right to choose your own medical treatment. Now, the WHO is gearing up to make its pandemic leadership permanent, extend it into the healthcare systems of every nation and eventually implement a universal or “socialist-like” healthcare system as part of The Great Reset.

The Chinese Slowdown: Much More Than Covid (Lacalle)

The most recent macroeconomic figures show that the Chinese slowdown is much more severe than expected and not only attributable to the covid-19 lockdowns. The lockdowns have an enormous impact. Twenty-six of 31 China mainland provinces have rising covid cases and the fear of a Shanghai-style lockdown is enormous. The information coming from Shanghai proves that these drastic lockdowns create an enormous damage to the population. Millions of citizens without food or medicine and rising suicides have shown that the infamous “zero covid” policy often disguises mass population control and repression. It is easy to use the covid-19 lockdowns as the reason for the weakening of the Chinese economy but that would be a gross simplification. The problem is deeper.

China is going through a severe slowdown caused by the burst of the enormous real estate bubble and the crackdown on the private sector, which has led to a cut in investment growth. According to Nomura Research, China faces the worst slowdown since the covid outbreak in 2020 and the world should be worried about a further slide, as the challenges persist. Official gross domestic product (GDP) figures may be massaged to deliver the government’s target, but all other macro figures point to a much weaker growth. We must remember that there are two ways in which the Chinese government “boosts” real GDP: By publishing a low inflation and GDP deflator figure and by massively increasing credit and infrastructure spending. However, those two cannot disguise the importance of the weakening of the Chinese economy, because it is now structural.

The collapse of the real estate bubble is the biggest problem. A research paper by Kenneth Rogoff and Yuanchen Yang estimated that the real estate sector accounts for around 29 percent of China’s GDP. It is impossible for the Chinese government to offset the impact of such a massive part of the economy with other high-growth sectors. Furthermore, real estate’s impact on the job market is hard to substitute. Economist George Magnus warned that the impact of the real estate collapse would last for years.

“..while the number of weather-related disasters [..] has risen in the past 50 years, the number of deaths caused by them has fallen..”

BBC Climate Editor Made False Claims On Global Warming (DM)

A BBC Panorama documentary about global warming made a number of false claims, an internal investigation by the broadcaster has found. The programme Wild Weather, presented by climate editor Justin Rowlatt, said deaths worldwide were rising due to extreme weather caused by climate change – whereas the opposite is true. It also claimed Madagascar was on the verge of the first famine caused by climate change – despite other factors being involved. The programme, broadcast last November to coincide with the COP26 climate conference, sparked two complaints investigated by the BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit (ECU). Last year Rowlatt’s sister Cordelia was among a number of Insulate Britain activists arrested for staging a protest at junction 3 of the M25.


Miss Rowlatt, who once appeared on TV advising her brother on how to be more environmentally friendly, pleaded guilty by post at Crawley Magistrates’ Court. She was fined £300 with £85 court costs and a £34 surcharge for committing a public nuisance on a highway. The introduction of Wild Weather said ‘the death toll is rising around the world and the forecast is that worse is to come’. The ECU said this risked giving the impression the rate of deaths from extreme weather-related events was increasing. In fact, as noted by a recent report from the World Meteorological Organisation, while the number of weather-related disasters – such as floods, storms and drought – has risen in the past 50 years, the number of deaths caused by them has fallen because of improved early warnings and disaster management.

The Guardian is a two-faced monster.

Priti Patel, Julian Assange Must Not Be Handed Over To The US (G.)

Priti Patel now has to make one of the most important decisions of her career: will she bow to heavy pressure from the United States and send a vulnerable man who has been convicted of no crime to face an indeterminate number of years in an American jail where he may experience intimidation and isolation? Her decision is imminent and all other legal avenues have been explored. This was the scenario 10 years ago in the case of Gary McKinnon, the computer hacker who, working out of his north London bedroom, trawled through the computer systems of Nasa and the US defence department in search of information about UFOs and left behind some mildly rude messages about the systems’ sloppy security. The home secretary was Theresa May, who halted extradition proceedings at the last minute.

Now Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder and also a vulnerable man – who has been in Belmarsh high-security prison for three years without being convicted of any crime – is facing extradition, with the issue due to be decided this month. Once again, the home secretary has an opportunity to demonstrate, as May did, that respect for justice and humanity are much finer and more enduring qualities than appeasement. It is worth recalling the words of party leaders in support of McKinnon after Labour home secretaries – to their great shame – declined to intervene in the years after his initial arrest in 2002. Nick Clegg, then leading the Liberal Democrats in opposition, said that McKinnon “has been hung out to dry by a British government desperate to appease its American counterparts”.

David Cameron, before he became prime minister, had said: “McKinnon is a vulnerable young man and I see no compassion in sending him thousands of miles away from his home and loved ones to face trial.” The current case is different in that, while McKinnon remained at liberty, Assange has been held in custody alongside murderers and terrorists after the seven years he spent in the Ecuadorian embassy, seeking political asylum. He should have been given bail long ago to be with his wife, Stella Moris, whom he married in prison in March, and their two young children; he could simply be electronically tagged and monitored. It is also different in that he faces charges under the Espionage Act which carries a potential sentence of 175 years. And yes, the US criminal justice system does actually impose such medieval sentences.

    Vincent van Gogh Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Café du Tambourin 1887

    An interesting looking woman; she also ran the Café du Tambourin.
    A well known model for many well known artists as well…
    It’s also interesting to note how much our concept of female beauty has changed over the generations…
    In my nearly 2 decades living in S.E. Asia, my own concept of female beauty has changed greatly…

    “Ukraine diverts some Russian gas flows, claims battlefield gains”
    Not much about the gas there. Not surprisingly since the “story” was posted at 5a.m. ADT only mid morning in Ukraine. It’s a propaganda piece about all the military successes the nazi’s are having at the expense of the Russian forces. I’d guess this hit piece was written up yesterday afternoon as a way to finish out someones work day. I note the disclaimer of having no one on the ground to verify any of it.
    “Reuters was unable to independently verify the reports of fighting.”
    Because they won’t spend the coin to do it properly. I doubt if they could even get close if they were there on the azov side. A bit too dangerous for those cupcakes, as well as too much anti thesis for their gaslighting to continue.

    Ransomware Attack Drives US College To Close Doors For Good After 157 Years”

    Complete failure of the DHS, FBI, and hundreds of millions of dollars the U.S. wastes on cybersecurity. We should just remove from their budget the exact amount to make (Black) Lincoln College whole as a good lesson to them. To stop yanking on their pull ropes and work for the people.

    “Nonprofit Watchdog Uncovers $350 Million In Secret Payments To Fauci, Collins, Others At NIH”

    Whoops, there’s all the money they need, in yesterday’s news. No one is investigating, no arrests expected.

    Pat Buchanon. Antiwar. https://buchanan.org/blog/is-ukraines-war-now-americas-war-159368

    I don’t explain it, I just report it. And his report is that Pelosi and Biden are chewing on their arms, veins in their teeth prowar. “This is America’s War” “America is in this to win it.” “We cannot let this man remain in power.” Plus $40B dollars. Pretty clear. Pat just says, “When you claim YOU sunk the Moskva, YOU killed the generals, aren’t you diminishing all the fighting of the Ukrainians? Like they don’t matter, don’t exist, aren’t a real military force? And you preclude us from brokering the peace. Why would you do that?”

    Never thought I’d be quoting Pat Buchanan, yet here we are. If he’s antiwar, there has to be some good in him.

    “Biden Wanted $33B More for Ukraine. Congress Raised It to $40B (Greenwald)”

    Buchanan points out that we have now completely justified Russia. By doing this and being obvious about it, they, and the Global South, can clearly see that NATO IS attacking, and the West DOES want the total annihilation of Russia forever, to harvest them for resources. Our denials now mean nothing, and thus so do all our words.

    Other articles on the late-stage empires, Thucydides Trap. This is nonsense and nothing could be easier than the United States just behaving morally and rationally in relation to other countries, which may or may not have China rise, but would solve the war-transition problem. The only reason they can’t is that empire, power, makes you mad. It drives not only the leaders insane, but to a lesser degree the people too. They, we, cannot do the simplest action nor make the simplest choice correctly because due to previous power we believe that “We create reality” i.e. “we are God”, which is the HALLMARK of insanity. This is the usual American “Power of Positive Thinking” “New Age” love and light taken to an irrational and ultimate extreme that Americans are well-known and even respected for. Nobody takes things so much too far as we do, and often that works out, like in Desert southwest, in inventions, and so on. But it regularly has us take economics or slavery or prisons to extremes as well.

    Anyway, I would bet the $40B isn’t for nuttin’. I mean, yes it’s for the war, but actually too much. What it’s really for is to bail out the EU national defaults that are beginning, because they can blame Russia and the war. So they can delay the total cascading financial collapse just 30 more days. One more day. Just not have the collapse at 9am tomorrow. I think we’ve already seen this in that the budget is for “nations”. That’s it. Nations who are friends who are in Europe that we want to give it to if they play ball. It’s a AIG/Sachs/DeutscheBank bank bailout.

    There is a tragic and obvious downside to every WEF enhancement. The brain is 100x more compact data than anything today and they think we will add Bill Gates to it and “exponentially” improve it? Not WEF: WTF. And that will “Increase security”. Whut? Am I in danger of having my brain hacked now? No. Not in the hundreds of ways possible then. Add Bill Gates and it’s MORE secure? Whut? Do their minds work at all? Patients have monitoring chips? Well that’s not new, they have EKGs and bed monitors, whatever now. But listen closely: “So they can work remotely.” W – TF would they “work remotely”??? That’s the one and only thing nurses do is be there directly. Doctors can work remotely, nurses have to grab your arms and turn your butt.

    Whhhhy? Because they already have this. They are trying to have remote monitor nurses cover not 5 beds, whatever, but 25, 50 beds. On camera. And then if something happens? A miracle if you notice since “noticing” is often very subtle, touchy stuff about the quality of breathing, skin tone, but then, just like all other Security Booths, they’ll point and say, “Hey look. Somebody is being robbed/dying on camera, but alas I am far too far away to stop it. Oh well, I guess I’ll push this button and record their death in this notebook.” Siiiiip coffee latte. Go back to Netflix. Killin’ some folks.

    Oh yes, they are trying this already. Remember that robotic nurse? Genius! And who watches the camera of the nurse robot? A: A nurse! So we’ve replaced one nurse with one nurse, but we make it up on the volume. And added $10,000 by having the robot, complete with Windows 11, hacked, out of batteries, and disabled most of the time. But wait! There’s more! The robot is so incompetent, it can’t touch anything, lift anybody, take blood pressure, and needs a SECOND, human nurse beside it to open doors, keep it from running into cords and tubes, and do the work. Se we get one nurse for the price of two!!!

    Yes, so a WEF nurse can work “remotely.” That’s like the next thing the WEF is installing now: you can EAT remotely. We show you pictures of food and other people eating, and you put the pictures in your mouth. Because you own nothing, which means certainly not the food.

    Like I said, takes 5x the time to comment than they can schitzo on you with word-salad, and being mentally ill, they never get tired and schitzo delusions and attacks 24 hours a day their whole lives through. The only practical thing to do is recognize and diagnose their mental illness, do not do the things they say, and remove them from society so they can no longer kill people.

    Lookin’ at you, Billy-Boi. Who only today said Covid is a cold, only hurts the elderly, and was not banned for “misinformation”. Either for saying that now, or for saying the #Opposite for two years before now. Is he conceding on this because his airborne Ebola is ready for launch? Or did he get that smallpox he said was coming and we immediately found in a lab?

    That’s how depopulation is done in a civil way. You have to admit: having a legally voluntary, lottery system to kill people, that mostly includes even the rich, doctors, congressmen, IS in fact the most civil way imaginable. And I have to admit it is not #Eugenics as such. I’ve said before that they believe there is an upcoming Ice Age, or just “Climate Change” and all “Society” (meaning them) will collapse as has happened regularly in history. The darkened skies and 200 years of rainy, failing weather of 400AD comes to mind. Human civilization barely survived. “How the Irish Saved History” Who wants all our “advances” to be lost? But I’m not going to kill everyone to achieve my ends. Have they been in some way unclear about it?

    FDA: Youngest Kids Vaccine Won’t Need to Hit 50% Efficacy Mark (EP)”

    Remember the sci-fi movies where kids are sterile unless they take a pill or procedure to have children, if allowed at all by the State? Yes, not a pill for, but you will need IVF or something – something expensive – to do what all* humans have as a birthright of being. (*Including men, of course. They have uteruses. But I was thinking of infertile women, we’re just noting the majority trend of humans)

    “BBC Climate Editor Made False Claims on Global Warming (DM)”

    This is the stealing so they are for it, regardless of truth, false, or data. However that’s not to say it’s not going to happen, and isn’t changing dramatically now, which it is. The sun is dangerously more hot, and the seasons and zones are changed and unreliable going back to 1989 or so here.

    This is where you have AOC, newly arrived and just read the internal Congressional documents on the upcoming change, the lack of food, the chaos and collapse and hanging of young female Congresswomen in the streets that will cause, and so on. So she is panicked and urgent, and perhaps rightfully so. But: 1) if you have such documents, how are you going to get the people to buy in, or vote accurately if you withhold all the evidence and won’t tell them. Which leads to 2) All I have to do is PRETEND this is happening, or add and remove and tamper with data, a CIA specialty, to steer all of Congress, the military, and everybody else to your conclusion and final resting point. That is, to utterly destroy the American experiment, all human rights, the whole enlightenment, and replace it with oligarchic Neo-feudalism. Scientific dictatorship. And because no open data, no discussion, no one can identify and decide. The information-keepers are the deciders. And the information-keepers say 25M dead and no human births without permission. It’s like a sci-fi Dr. Who episode, with a crashed ship, everyone having forgotten who they are and where they came from.

    This lawsuit is trying to break that.

    I suspect some here would be uncomfortable with Buchanan’s Christianity and conservatism. I do think the modern left has vindicated most of the positions Buchanan held – like outsourcing manufacturing jobs and unlimited immigration.

    The Word of the Day from Mr Rogers

    Expodentially

    The lack of law enforcement for all things criminal in a large lumbering sense. is increasing expodentially.

    Nothing even incrementally improves until prosecutors and judges pull their thumbs out of their asses.

    Which is not going to happen.

    Screw civil cases, those can be dragged out over decades until both the good guys and bad guys are senile or dead.

    Criminal cases have to be started by public prosecutors.

    What motivates prosecutors to do their job?

    Using their positions to leverage their personal sociopathic desire to climb the greasy pole of political office by showing they ‘care’ about public health and safety.

    Years ago a friend used to refer to lawyers and prosecutors as Master Debaters and Eager Fellatiors.

    Not much has changed except at least half the ‘profession’ is women now. Welcome to the club ladies.

    The open violation of harassing Supreme Clown judges at their homes goes unprosecuted.

    That shows how impotent judges are now, even Supreme Clowns are eunuchs in black dresses, it make them look slimmer.

    They are all cowards and crooks and glue sniffing Sophists.

    Judges can’t even protect their own homes from the mob, pitiful dickless slugs.

    So where’s the power now, with Bernays PR flacks busy creating ‘Reality’ in hollowed out mediawhore flophouses like CNN and MSNBC?

    Seems so.

    Justice for Just Us?

    In the 19th century, you know who got more ink on paper than Jesus?

    Napoleon, or Napoleone di Buonaparte.

    His name was de-Italianized to seem more ‘french’, seeing how historically Corsica was part of the Republic of Genoa for centuries.

    Know how Napoleon got his break and was noticed during the twilight days of the French Revolution?

    He put down a street mob of royalists by firing grapeshot point blank from a bank of army cannons into the crowd.

    Grapeshot is many small iron balls, like a giant shotgun, but sometimes it’s whatever is at hand, broken glass, pieces of chain, nails, rocks, etc. It make a bloody mess.

    He killed about 1400 of them just like that.

    His comment later on was that he gave the crowd ‘a taste of grapeshot’, like it was just a taste of Merlot.

    The “powers that were” were very impressed, they liked what they saw. They gave him the keys to the kingdom.

    And the rest is history.

    A decade of slaughter all over Europe and they still revered a brandy by naming it after him, not bad!

    The Empire of Big Lies and Chaos
    is waiting for it’s Napoleon to appear.

    Aside from Putin and Viktor Orbán and maybe Xi, there are no ‘leaders’ currently in the world, just packs of jackals and wild dogs and fluctuating power centers, and you know how that ends.

    Club of Rome guy — equates liberty with high consumption.
    Ironic…we are told that free market capitalism is very efficient. Does he have data that shows otherwise?
    Is a dictatorship or depopulation the ONLY way to bring down high consumption?

    Regardless, in our current iteration of capitalism corporations spend outrageous sums on marketing campaigns that are designed to exploit human psychology to induce us to consume more goods and services. In addition, they employ techniques such as “planned obsolescence” and a desire to adjust products each year so that their costs go down by a set figure — I’ve heard by 5%. These techniques cause many products to be frail and prone to breakage, keeping the cycle of consumption going. (Only part of it is a cycle — the part where the consumer runs round and round. It’s a straight line with a loop, starting with raw materials, factories, transportation, stores or Amazon warehouses, then the consumption loop for the consumers, and the tail where most products end up in the landfill. I mention this because nature uses cycles constantly, and we want our systems to be true cycles as well, or to fit within the earth’s extant cycles.)

    IF we didn’t have an entire system in place designed to induce humans to “consume, consume, consume!” would consumption by free people be so high? (Are we truly free when our psychology is being used against us in order to get us to play this consumption game?)

    OR, in my hypothecated situation, would humans place more emphasis on relationships with family and friends (especially face-to-face interactions) than in consumption, as humans have always done in the past?

    Good, the blog link upload worked today. That is today’s blog post.
    Much of it will be familiar here, but there’s another nice snapshot taken at the homestead.
    We are “progressin”. https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/club-members?s=w

    I apologize: The story about the Pfizer VP arrested for fraud was “satire”. My fault. I had seen a headline about “Pfizer CEO arrested” debunked for a couple of days, then saw this story at a good site, and thought it was new and valid. It was not.

    Links including my newer blog drjohnsblog.substack.com would not upload to Caitlin Johnstone’s site or the Automatic Earth blog 3 days ago, but things uploaded with the Google blog version http://www.johndayblog.com . This may reflect new censorship of Substack, since it does not self-censor. I don’t think it is content-driven exactly, since the 2 blogs are mirrors for now (except some posts removed by Google).

    I have opined that the factor which creates a “world war” is that it resets the global financial arrangement. That still seems apt to me.

    Capitalism Requires World War: (Debt-based money is terminally strung-out)
    ​ ​Power is more important than money. If you’re rich and weak you get robbed. Russia provides illustrating stories of such: Gorbachev had received a promise from George HW Bush that the US would pay Russia approximately $400 billion over10 years as a “peace dividend” and as a tool to be utilized in the conversion of their state run to a market based economic system. The Russians believe the head of the CIA at the time, George Tenet, essentially killed the deal based on the idea that “letting the country fall apart will destroy Russia as a future military threat”. The country fell apart in 1992. Its natural assets were plundered which raised the rate of profit in the 90’s until President Putin put a stop to the robbery.
    ​ ​In the last analysis, the current framework of Capitalism results in labour redundancy, a falling rate of profit and ingrained trading imbalances caused by excess capacity. Under our current monopoly state capitalism a number of temporary preventive measures have evolved, including the expansion of university, military, and prison systems to warehouse new generations of labour.
    ​ ​Our problem is how to retain the “expected return rate” for us, the dominant class. Ultimately, there are only two large-scale solutions, which are intertwined. One is expansion of state debt to keep “the markets” moving and transfer wealth from future generations of labour to the present dominant class. The other is war, the consumer of last resort. Wars can burn up excess capacity, shift global markets, generate monopoly rents, and return future labour to a state of helplessness and reduced expectations. The Spanish flu killed 50-100 million people in 1918. As if this was not enough, it also took two World Wars across the 20th century and some 96 million dead to reduce unemployment and stabilize the “labour problem.”
    ​ ​Capitalism requires World War because Capitalism requires profit and cannot afford the unemployed. The point is capitalism could afford social democracy after the rate of profit was restored thanks to the depression of the 1930’s and the physical destruction of capital during WW2. Capitalism only produces for profit and social democracy was funded by taxing profits after WW2.

    ​ Brandon Smith writes for capitalists, but he sees the same thing as a threat to his particular $US interests.​ The “new currency” arrangements are not settled yet.
    Economic World War, Who Benefits (and how much time is left?)
    ​ ​If a global economic crisis is the catalyst as it appears to be, then several years would be required to let the collapse play out – along with the introduction of a “solution” to the problem. This means that the economic war will have to accelerate quickly going into the next year.
    ​ ​Today we are already seeing 40 year highs in inflation, along with considerable supply chain disruptions. Multiple globalist foundations are “predicting” food shortages around the world in the next 3-6 months. I believe the war itself will expand rapidly within a year to include China, and most of the damage will be done by the end of 2024. This will all depend on how fast exporters (mainly China) dump the dollar; the dollar dump will be the primary trigger.
    ​ ​A significant part of the WEF’s Great Reset agenda and the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights global digital currency initiative require the end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This is a process the globalists have been talking about openly for some time. It’s not “conspiracy theory,” it is conspiracy reality. The IMF has argued on many occasions that the global currency framework must be “managed” by a centralized entity that can prevent national governments from exploiting currency trade for their own ends, and this includes digital currencies.
    ​ ​The stage is already set for this narrative. The U.S. will be painted as an example of why nationalism is a “path to disaster” and why no single nation should be trusted with so much power in the form of a world reserve currency. That kind of power tempts governments not only into excessive money creation and debt-financed spending sprees. New money is fabricated to pay for old debts, thus debasing and degrading the dollar’s purchasing power worldwide (also known as inflation).
    ​ ​Thus, it is only “logical” that a global central authority with no national loyalties be put in control of an “international” reserve currency, right? Maybe a multi-currency-based basket system, or, perhaps, a single world currency to prevent any future tragedies and abuses of power from ever happening again. Wouldn’t that make you feel safe?

    ​ Doug Casey has “5 Warning Signs” that the end of $US hegemony is near. (The oil, gold and commodity based regime being arranged by the Eurasian Economic Union looks promising to me, but I have no special knowledge.)
    Here’s the bottom line.
    Saudi Arabia—the linchpin of the petrodollar system—is flirting in the open with China about selling its oil in yuan. One way or another—and probably soon—the Chinese will find a way to compel the Saudis to accept the yuan.
    The sheer size of the Chinese market makes it impossible for Saudi Arabia—and other oil exporters—to ignore China’s demands to pay in yuan indefinitely. Moreover, using the INE to exchange oil for gold further sweetens the deal for oil exporters.
    Sometime soon, there will be a lot of extra dollars floating around suddenly looking for a home now that they are not needed to purchase oil.
    It signals an imminent and enormous change for anyone holding US dollars. It would be incredibly foolish to ignore this giant red warning sign.

    Charles Hugh Smith on The Problem With Money​
    ​ ​I​​’m simply pointing out “money” isn’t simple, and “backing money with X” leads to questions about the nature of “money,” collateral and the fluidity and complexity of the social construct we call “money.”
    ​ ​The problem with money is it isn’t just one thing. We think it’s one thing because we use it to buy things, but it’s actually a bunch of different things. https://www.oftwominds.com/blogmay22/money5-22.html

    ​ ​The current 100 WEF full members (“Strategic Partners”) are basically drawn from the largest corporations in the world, together with their owners and managers, who are often referred to as “Davos Man”. The list of corporations, owners and managers that control the WEF is not disclosed and membership can only be inferred indirectly. However, the WEF members do not act alone, but have developed various groups of globally distributed trainees who generally act in accordance with the detailed policies and positions developed and distributed by WEF leadership. In general, these training programs have been operating for over three decades, resulting in placement, distribution and rapid advancement of many thousands of WEF-trained operatives throughout the world. As hyperlinked above, WEF chairman Klaus Schwab has famously claimed that these operatives have been strategically inserted into key positions in various governments, as well influential positions in important industries such as media, finance, and technology.
    ​ ​WHO IS DAVOS MAN?
    ​ ​“Davos Man” is a term coined by former Harvard University Director of the Center for International Affairs Professor Dr. Samuel Huntington (1927-2008) to define what was then an emerging group of economic elites who are members of a social caste which has “little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that are thankfully vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations.”

    ​Moon of Alabama (German): ​Ukraine – Putin on Why The War Started, Failed Attempts On Snake Island, Other Issues
    ​ ​The use of ‘pre-emptive strike’ is somewhat misleading. In fact the Ukraine started the war on Wednesday, February 16 2022, when its forces near the Donbas republics began preparatory artillery strikes for an all out ground attack on the Donbas republics.
    ​ ​The February 15 report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded some 41 explosions in the ceasefire areas. This increased to 76 explosions on Feb 16, 316 on Feb 17, 654 on Feb 18, 1413 on Feb 19, a total of 2026 of Feb 20 and 21 and 1484 on Feb 22.
    ​ ​The OSCE mission reports showed that the great majority of impact explosions of the artillery were on the separatist side of the ceasefire line.

Plus, we were very open and honest about what we were seeing the Russians do. And then the last point, which I don’t think we keep in mind as much as we should, Neil, is the training and effort that went into getting the Ukrainians ready for this kind of war over the last eight years. The United States, Canada, Britain, other allies really helped train the Ukrainians in small unit leadership, command and control, operational maneuver.” – John Kirby claimed in his interview.

    Biden Wanted $33B More For Ukraine. Congress Quickly Raised it to $40B. Who Benefits?
    Tens of billions, soon to be much more, are flying out of U.S. coffers to Ukraine as Americans suffer, showing who runs the U.S. Government, and for whose benefit.
    ..It is difficult to put into context how enormous these expenditures are — particularly since the war is only ten weeks old, and U.S. officials predict/hope that this war will last not months but years. That ensures that the ultimate amounts will be significantly higher still.
    ​ ​The amounts allocated thus far — the new Biden request of $33 billion combined with the $14 billion already spent — already exceed the average annual amount the U.S. spent for its own war in Afghanistan ($46 billion).​..
    ​..Even more amazingly, the total amount spent by the U.S. on the Russia/Ukraine war in less than three months is close to Russia’s total military budget for the entire year ($65.9 billion)…
    ..Indeed, by transferring so much military equipment to Ukraine, the U.S. has depleted its own stockpiles, necessitating their replenishment with mass government purchases..
    …Chomsky himself caused controversy last week when he said that there is only one statesman of any stature in the West urging a diplomatic solution “and his name is Donald J. Trump.”… (Poor Noam must have choked on spit-up, saying this.)
    ​..​Typically, what we see in such situations is what we are seeing now: the establishment wings of both parties are in complete lockstep unity, always breathlessly supporting the new proposed U.S. role in any new war, eager to empty the coffers of the U.S. Treasury and transfer it to the weapons industry while their constituents suffer.

    ​Poland Will Formally Propose Sending NATO Troops to Ukraine at Summit This Thursday
    Poland on Tuesday called for a Nato peace mission “protected by armed forces” to help Ukraine.
    “This cannot be an unarmed mission,” Vice Premier Jaroslaw Kaczynski was quoted as saying by the Polish news agency PAP during a visit to Kyiv.
    “It must seek to provide humanitarian and peaceful aid to Ukraine.”
    “I think that we need a peacekeeping mission from Nato, or even possibly from a larger international structure, but a mission that will be able to defend itself and that will operate on Ukrainian territory, which will be in this country with the agreement of the president and the government of Ukraine and it will not be a defenseless mission,” Kaczynski said.
    ​ ​It “will strive for peace, to provide humanitarian aid, but at the same time it will be protected by appropriate forces, armed forces,” added Kaczynski, who is also the leader of the ruling conservative party in Poland and is considered the main strategist of government policy.

    WAR IN UKRAINE DAY 76: ADVANCE IN DONBASS CONTINUES. RUSSIA REVEALS NEW DETAILS ON CLASHES FOR ZMEINIY ISLAND

    Germany’s third-largest gas importer, VNG, has agreed to Moscow’s new ruble-based gas payment scheme and opened the necessary accounts with Russia’s Gazprombank to transfer payments…
    “We will pay the invoice amount, which will continue to be denominated in euros, into the accounts at Gazprombank in accordance with the planned procedure, so that timely payment to our supplier is ensured on our part,”
    https://www.rt.com/business/555242-germany-vng-russian-ruble-gas/

    ​All of that gas to Europe, transiting Ukraine, now goes through ONE vulnerable pipeline. (False-flag attack time?)​
    Kiev cites “force majeure” to halt a third of Russian transited gas flow to Europe, while Gazprom says there have been no issues that would justify the move
    https://www.rt.com/russia/555265-gazprom-gas-ukraine-europe/

    (​An attack on this pipeline would be blamed on Russia, but the threat of that attack most realistically comes from desperate Ukrainian forces.​)
    There are only two entry points, which means all natgas would be diverted to the second entry point.
    Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System Operator said it would no longer accept Russian gas transit via Sokhranivka beginning at 0700 local time on Wednesday. Mainly because it “repeatedly informed Gazprom about threats of transit due to the actions of the Russian-controlled occupation forces and demanded an end to interference in the operation of the facilities, but these appeals were ignored.”

    On the vital importance to members of lying for the “club”. When something is being covered up by the club, it’s more likely to be true.
    The Ethical Skeptic’s Razor – The Antiwisdom of Crowds: Among competing alternatives, all other things being equal, prefer the one for which discussion or research is embargoed.

    Lying is an art form which ranks among the greatest of the humanities – bearing parity with such human affairs as mercy, semantics, history, love, literature, or war. The Paul Ekman Group, which teaches methodologies useful in spotting lies, has identified nine key reasons as to why people lie.1 Within this essay, we seek to extrapolate beyond this body of work, and identify a chain of principle regarding the lie of the syndicate in particular – a foible-in-common which further then leverages the amplification gain to be had through collective humanity: the antiwisdom of the crowd. https://theethicalskeptic.com/2022/05/07/the-ethical-skeptics-razor-the-antiwisdom-of-crowds/

    The Delta variant practically disappeared from nasal swab results
    Despite that, Delta variant RNA was massively present in Israel’s wastewater long after it disappeared from nasal swabs.

    We had an inexpensive life-saving solution both before and during the pandemic…
    The inconvenient truth is that even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a very simple, inexpensive and effective treatment was available that could have saved the majority of lives lost (1-3). All that the WHO and public health bureaucracy had to do was to recommend and support people taking sufficient Vitamin D3.

    Us vs Them

    The whole sense of the phrase depends on which cohort you think of as “us”, doesn’t it?

    In fact, the conceptualized scene and the human values within it do a nauseating, morally disorienting, brain wrenching, 180 degree U-Turn by simply switching the identity of who the hell “us” is.

    At this moment the “us” that I think of as my team does NOT seem to be the “us” that’s running pretty much everything even remotely in charge of governance, officialdom or Authority. Some OTHER “us” (i.e. what looks to me like some sort of “them”) seems to be in the wheelhouse. Whoever it is, it sure ain’t the folks I always thought of as “us”.

    Somehow or other (and it’s no big mystery how, really) the owning, ruling and governing population has determined itself to be different than the people I’ve always thought of as “us” . And that owning, ruling and governing population (who I’m quite sure think of THEMSELVES and cohort as the only legitimate “us” worthy of being in the world) has come to the apparently unshakable conclusion that most everyone else are deadwood, useless eaters not worthy of life . . . and must therefore be eliminated. The “us” (the elite in this particular case) has concluded that democide of the “them” (the plebes in this particular case) is not only acceptable, but mandatory.

    Yelling at these so-called ruling elites to stop destroying the world because governance exclusively of by and for the owners/rulers/governments is causing injustice, loss, disease, famine, and death, etc. is equivalent to a herd of deer yelling at the hunters to stop shooting because it’s causing too many venison dinners.

    In other words, all of the complaining by plebes is not telling the owners (and goombah loyalist cohort) anything they don’t already know. In fact, it isn’t just known. It’s known, loved and whole heartedly approved of. Democide, after all, is not some kind of passive criminal negligence. It tends to be on purpose.

    Indeed, democide reflects the MOST earnest and sincere criticism of which humans are capable. It isn’t done lightly. It’s done because the perpetrating “us” deeply believe that it is crucially and vitally important that the targeted “them” cease to exist. The elite/owner/ruler/governing “We” which is so intent upon mass murder on the grandest scale believes that the world can only properly exist when the vile sub-human “them” is utterly and forever removed from it.

    Preventing that removal, at some point PRIOR to its accomplishment , would probably be a good idea for all persons currently on the list.
