History is Being Written Before our Eyes (Baliushka)

In 1945 the US and the UK betrayed and turned on their ally, the Soviet Union, which was far too victorious against Nazi Germany for their taste. For the war-crime bombings of Dresden, ordered by the half-American Churchill, and of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ordered by the full-American Truman, were warnings – issued not to the already crushed Germany and Japan, but to the USSR. Then, from 1945 on, a series of covert and not so covert operations were carried out by Western spies and terrorists in order to undermine further the Soviet Union, notably in the Baltics and above all in the Western Ukraine (right up until 1958). Many so-called ‘former’ Nazis were employed by the Western Powers to do this dirty work for them.

Even after losing its wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, in 2014 the United States organised and financed a violent, anti-democratic regime-change operation in Kiev, at a cost of $5 billion to the US taxpayer. It had now finally bitten off more than it could chew. As a result, the Russian Federation, a Superpower, though mocked and despised at the time by the arrogant Obama as a political and economic ‘regional’ minnow, had to take back the Crimea after its 60-year loan to the Ukraine. Otherwise, it would have lost its key Black Sea naval base in Sevastopol to the Pentagon, just as it had briefly lost it to the Anglo-French Fascists in 1856 and the German Fascists in 1942. It also had to defend Russian-speaking Eastern Ukraine by setting up a buffer zone, so buying itself time to prepare for a possible full-blown campaign of liberation there.

From 2014 on, Russia made eight years of highly meticulous preparations, ideological, political, diplomatic, economic, military, energy and agricultural, implementing a policy of import substitution to increase its independence and sovereignty. For Russia knew that the US would flood the Ukraine with NATO instructors and weapons in order to attack its people there and Russia itself, even if Russia did not launch a campaign to liberate the eastern Ukraine. The US will have a high price to pay for the foolish arrogance of this militarisation, carried out together with its NATO minions. Once the Crimea had voluntarily and democratically returned to Russia after the Western annexation of the Kiev regime territories in 2014, Russia experienced the illegal sanctions imposed on it by the Evil Empire. These would be implemented in even greater numbers, if Russia was forced to take back its ancestral territories of Novorossiya and Malorossiya and again set up a demilitarised and denazified zone in, at the very least, Eastern Europe.

There’s that phrase again: “..indivisibility of security…”

Russia, China Give World a Glimpse of What WWIII Could Look Like (Celente)

Russia and China are not natural allies and some geopolitical observers say it is remarkable that the countries have developed such a close relationship in such a relatively short amount of time. On Tuesday, in a remarkable show of unity, the two countries flew strategic bombers over the Sea of Japan— just outside Japanese and South Korean air defense zones— in what Reuters called a “pointed farewell to U.S. President Joe Biden as he concluded a trip to Asia.” One U.S. official tried to use the joint exercise as an example of why India should not rely on Moscow. “It also shows that Russia will stand with China in the East and South China Seas, not with other Indo-Pacific states,” the official told The Financial Times.

Russia said in a statement that the bombers — Tu-95MS strategic missile carriers and Chinese H-6 bombers — did not break international law. Japan’s Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said during a news conference that “the fact that this action was taken during the Quad summit makes it more provocative than in the past.” “As the international community responds to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, the fact that China took such action in collaboration with Russia, which is the aggressor, is cause for concern. It cannot be overlooked,” he said. Japan and South Korea said they scrambled fighter jets after at least four Chinese and four Russian warplanes in response. (The Quad summit is held among the U.S., Australia, Japan, and India…and its mission is to counter China in the Pacific region.)

Despite the weeks of pressure from the U.S. and European countries, Beijing has refused to criticize Russia and has, instead, blamed the West for having set the stage for the war. China said in March that it would like to bring its relationship with Russia to “a higher level.” “The Ukrainian issue… is not only the outbreak of the long term accumulation of security conflicts in Europe but also the result of the Cold War mentality and group confrontation,” Wang Yi, China’s foreign minister, said at the time. “In the long run, we should learn the lessons of the Ukraine crisis, respond to the legitimate security concerns of all parties based on the principles of mutual respect and indivisibility of security.”

[Russian] Black Sea Fleet specialists cleared more than 12,000 mines from the seaport and its surrounding areas.

Russia To Open Sea Corridors From Ukraine Ports Amid Wheat Crisis (ZH)

After being accused of using the food supply as blackmail and a bargaining chip, Russia said Wednesday its military will open up protected sea corridors for international shipping to pass through from seven Ukrainian ports that have thus far been blockaded. According to a defense ministry statement reported by Bloomberg late in the day, “Humanitarian maritime corridors from ports on the Black Sea and Azov Sea, including Odesa, will operate from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.” The announcement comes two days after the head of the United Nations World Food Program David Beasley ripped Moscow for what he dubbed a “declaration of war” on global food security. He’s been urging “political solution” to the crisis of blocked Black Sea ports, saying the war in ‘the world’s breadbasket’ threatens to unleash “famine, the destabilization of nations as well as mass migration by necessity.”

Millions of people in 43 countries dependent on grain from the war-torn region are “knocking on famine’s door,” he said. However, Russia has stressed that its military is engaged in extensive and complex demining operations due thousands of mines dotting Ukraine’s coast placed by Ukrainian forces, making international shipping dangerous and impossible. As reported in the independent Moscow Times: The port of Mariupol has resumed normal operations, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced Wednesday. The Defense Ministry said Black Sea Fleet specialists cleared more than 12,000 mines from the seaport and its surrounding areas.

Some one-third of global wheat supplies originate from Ukraine and Russia, with the bulk of it passing through the Black Sea. On Wednesday Russia said it remains ready and willing to work with the West to reach a solution, but that easing sanctions is a necessity: “We have repeatedly stated on this point that a solution to the food problem requires a comprehensive approach, including the lifting of sanctions that have been imposed on Russian exports and financial transactions,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko was quoted as saying by Interfax. But the statement called on Ukraine to cease deployment of sea mines, and to engage in immediate demining operations: “And it also requires the demining by the Ukrainian side of all ports where ships are anchored. Russia is ready to provide the necessary humanitarian passage, which it does every day,” Rudenko added.

A lot of grain is still exported.

Grains of Deceit (Saker)

The Western corporate media are masters of deceit, by providing just enough information to create a narrative, but deliberating omitting information or background data that alters the narrative negatively. At first sight, this narrative is so skewed, and many will be quick to dismiss it as nonsense. I would be careful to do this as there is a broader narrative effort being shaped by the U.S., EU and NATO. The implication that there is a global food crisis looming solely due to Ukrainian ports not being able to export crops is exasperating. Ukraine is still exporting grain crops via Romanian ports, which continue to operate normally, in particular, Constanta as reported by DW, (DW April 2022). It is predicted that 1.5million tons (mmt) of Ukrainian grain will be exported out of Romanian ports in May alone and it is anticipated that 3mmt can be exported in the near future. (Reuters May 2022), (Reuters 24 April 2022)

Although the throughput will not be the same level as Odessa for example. Even Lithuania has said that it can help to export Ukrainian grain through its railway network and ports. Additionally, the use of the Danube as a transportation waterway to EU ports is being done via barges from inland ports, along with proposals for the use of Adriatic ports, (HINA 24 May 2022) Road transport is being used to take crops to Romania port hubs, it is not as quick either, yet it is being done despite bottlenecks at border points. The Ukrainian rail network is already under pressure with military shipments and the rail infrastructure has consequently been degraded in Russian air strikes and as such can only be used in a limited manner, (Zdopravy cz in Czech).

[..] On a trivial point, once more there are aspects that don’t tally, 5 to 9 weeks waiting to get crops exported (NEXTA) compared to 6 days (Sky News 23 May 2022). Back to the bigger picture missing from the MSM narrative . Looking briefly at the figures on grain exports for a wider take on the subject. 2020-2021 2021-2022 Ukrainian grain production: 65mmt forecast 80mmt Russian grain production: 85 mmt forecast: 85mmt As Reuters reported this week, Ukraine still managed to export crops: “The ministry data showed that Ukraine has exported 46.51 mmt so far in the 2021/22 July-June season, versus 40.85 mmt a season earlier.” (Reuters 19 May 2022)

Frankly speaking, 22 mmt of grain will make little difference to the global shortage as it stands. Paradoxically Ukraine is paying for weapons provided by the West through grain exports.” Is it any surprise that Ukraine wants to use Odessa to ship its 70% expected export of grain crops and other products, as to be able to continue to pay for weapon deliveries? Ukrainian exports have largely transferred to Romanian, judging by the ship congestion seen on AIS. Importantly, none of the Western experts or corporate MSM outlets have been able to mention the fact that Russia is the world’s largest exporter of grain, about 4 times the amount of wheat that Ukraine does, about 18% of global exports and this year is expected record crops harvest. According to FAO STAT, Ukraine was the 8th largest wheat producer whereas Russia was in third position in 2020, behind China and India.

‘Fast-Tracked’ Russian Citizenship For Occupied Ukrainian Territories (ZH)

In the biggest indicator thus far in the over three-month long war in Ukraine that Russia intends to likely fully annex territory in the East and South, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed a decree which allows residents of Russian-occupied Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to gain fast-tracked Russian citizenship. Already the same policy is currently in effect for the breakaway eastern republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, the latter which is now reported to be almost completely in Russian forces’ control, as final battles with Ukrainian fighters are centered in the Luhansk cities of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk. Since 2019 an estimated 200,000 people in the two far eastern regions have gained Russian passports through the policy, which is now being extended to the Russian-controlled southern cities.

“Citizens of Ukraine, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR), or the Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR), permanently residing in the territory of the DNR, LNR, the Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine or the Kherson region of Ukraine, have the right to apply for citizenship of the Russian Federation in a simplified manner,” the decree reads.Ukraine was swift to condemn the move as a violation of its sovereignty and of international law and norms. Its foreign ministry said, “The illegal issuing of passports… is a flagrant violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as norms and principles of international humanitarian law.”

Meanwhile also on Wednesday Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky slammed the door on the idea of making territorial concessions for the sake of ending the war. “It’s possible if Russia shows at least something. When I say at least something, I mean pulling back troops to where they were before Feb. 24,” which marked the start of the invasion. He even said on Tuesday that Russia must hand back Crimea as well. He put the ball in Moscow’s court, saying it must “shift from the bloody war to diplomacy” if it hopes for the war to end.

Defending Sovereignty: The Fight of our Lifetime (Malone)

It is state’s rights – as imperfect as that system is, that protects us from the WHO/globalist power grab to leverage public health to compromise the sovereignty of the United States. The current strategic agenda of those seeking to advance globalism and global governance policies at the expense of the autonomy of nation-states is often referred to as the New World Order. Those advocating for the New World Order include the World Economic Forum, transnational corporations/globalized investment capital, the UN, World Trade Organization, World Bank and now the World Health Organization. These entities have, to a more or lesser extent, gained control of the Federal government through leveraging the regulatory capture of our federalized agencies, departments and institutions.

Money from these entities flows into the coffers of Congress to influence law makers. Often, treaties and agreements on the global level codify these arrangements. This ensures that our federal government is coopted by these entities. Our federal government believes that it will be stronger when states have little or no control over the rules and regulations of the state. This is not what our founding fathers intended, and this is when the rights of all of us are trampled on. Our constitution codifies that each state maintains its own set of laws, rules and regulations. The beauty of this system is the diversity of cultures can be maintained within states. Living in Texas is very different than living in New Hampshire, and I believe that this is a good thing.

Although states are stronger when there is a federal government appropriately assuming and defending those responsibilities enumerated under the US Constitution, they are also guaranteed the freedom to have their own cultural identity and rule of law. This is the beauty of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. This interweaving of states rights under the limited umbrella of a Federal government.

“..it seems clear that many who are publicly commenting, including some of the harshest critics, haven’t actually watched the film..”

Summary of ‘2000 Mules’ (Attkisson)

[..] the response to 2000 Mules has been swift and largely predictable. Trump advocates insist it proves game-changing election fraud in 2020. Trump opponents claim it’s just another debunked conspiracy theory that proves nothing. In the predominantly left-leaning establishment news media, the figures who have addressed the documentary tend to promote the latter conspiracy theory interpretation— advising people not to see the film, while simultaneously assuring them there’s nothing to see. Meantime, it seems clear that many who are publicly commenting, including some of the harshest critics, haven’t actually watched the film. So we’re left with a documentary that— if the evidence is true—would be one of the most important and impactful films of its time, but is likely being viewed almost exclusively by those in no need of conversion.

There was a time prior to 2015, before Donald Trump entered national politics, when the forensic work described in the film would have been done by credible news organizations and journalists, and by independent law enforcement bodies. Those days are gone. Most of the news media issued a collective shrug in the face of an election that was at the very least unusual, with unprecedented changes made under the auspices of Covid, with intervention by billionaire third party activists pouring money into projects like drop boxes, with positions and final calls getting switched, with polls that were wrong, with ballots that had no chain of custody, with a flood that never actually occurred but stopped counting at a Georgia precinct until the Republican observers went home, and much more.

Worse, some in the media insisted that questions and suspicious happenings should not be investigated even if the outcome would reassure a skeptical public the election was fair. To feel otherwise, we were told, was to be a conspiracy theorist of the worst kind bent on treason or the fall of democracy itself. Journalists and political figures declared, without evidence, that there was no fraud. When fraud emerged, they said there was no widespread fraud. When there was evidence of widespread fraud, they said there was no widespread fraud that would have changed the results. Yet they had no firsthand investigation to support these positions. Whenever opposing claims were made or differing intepretations were possible, they sided with one and called the other “conspiracies,” as if they hadn’t noticed that, in the prior four years, so many conspiracies had proven true, and so many declared truths had proven false.

FBI Spied on 3.3 Million Americans Without a Warrant (ET)

Top House Republicans are demanding answers from the FBI after court-ordered information came to light showing that the federal agency had collected the information of over 3 million Americans without a warrant. In a May 25 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Turner (R-Ohio) asked Wray to explain why his agency had wiretapped and gathered personal information on over 3.3 million Americans without a warrant. Limited authority to gather foreign intelligence information is granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Specifically, section 702 of the bill says: “the Attorney General (AG) and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) may jointly authorize the targeting of (i) non-U.S. persons (ii) who are reasonably believed to be outside of the United States (iii) to acquire foreign intelligence information.”

However, this power can grant an expanding circle of possible searches to the FBI and other intel agencies, who can use the same power against American citizens who had any interaction with targeted foreigners. Historically, insight into how FISA has been used against American citizens has been limited and hidden behind classified reports. However, a November 2020 decision by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)—which serves as a watchdog for U.S. intelligence agencies—required that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) report “the number of U.S. person queries run by the FBI against Section 702-acquired information.”

In accordance with these new requirements, ODNI’s recently-released Annual Statistical Transparency Report included data on how often the FBI gathered information on American citizens using section 702 in 2021. In total, queries against U.S. citizens came out to a jaw-dropping 3,394,053 searches. By comparison, only 1,324,057 such queries were made in 2020, representing around a 250 percent increase during President Joe Biden’s first year in office. According to ODNI more than half of these queries—approximately 1.9 million—were part of the larger investigation of alleged Russian attempts to target or weaken U.S. critical infrastructure. The ODNI report also admitted that on at least four occasions, the FBI failed to get FISC approval before accessing the contents of information collected under section 702.

“Did you guys open a case? Reach out and put tools on?”

Comey et al Were “Fired Up” to Pursue the False Alfa Bank Claims (Turley)

The Sussmann trial yesterday had another surprising disclosure when an agent revealed that FBI leadership, including then-Director James Comey, was “fired up” about the alleged secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The question is why Comey and others were so reportedly eager given the lack of foundation for the false claim — a record that even the researchers told the Clinton campaign could be mocked as utterly unsupported. Yet, as with the Steele dossier claims (funded and spread by the Clinton campaign) there was a strikingly receptive audience for such claims at the top of the FBI.

The new disclosure came with the testimony of the supervisory agent for the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe (“Crossfire Hurricane”) Joe Pientka. He sent a note to FBI Special Agent Curtis Heide that stated “People on the 7th floor to include Director are fired up about this server,” Pientka messaged Heide. “Did you guys open a case? Reach out and put tools on?” The description of the eagerness of Comey and others only magnified concerns over the alleged bias or the predisposition of the agency on the investigation of Trump and his campaign. It is particularly striking in an allegation that was viewed as unsupported even by the researchers and quickly dismissed by the government as baseless.

According to Durham, the Alfa Bank allegation fell apart even before Sussmann delivered it to the FBI. The indictment details how an unnamed “tech executive” allegedly used his authority at multiple internet companies to help develop the ridiculous claim. (The executive reportedly later claimed that he was promised a top cyber security job in the Clinton administration). Notably, there were many who expressed misgivings not only within the companies working on the secret project but also among unnamed “university researchers” who repeatedly said the argument was bogus. The researchers were told they should not be looking for proof but just enough to “give the base of a very useful narrative.”

The researchers argued, according to the indictment, that anyone familiar with analyzing internet traffic “would poke several holes” in that narrative, noting that what they saw likely “was not a secret communications channel with Russian Bank-1, but ‘a red herring,’” according to the indictment. “Researcher-1” repeated these doubts, the indictment says, and asked, “How do we plan to defend against the criticism that this is not spoofed traffic we are observing? There is no answer to that. Let’s assume again that they are not smart enough to refute our ‘best case scenario.’ You do realize that we will have to expose every trick we have in our bag to even make a very weak association.” The alleged response from Comey and the FBI leadership would seem to confirm the view of campaign associates that they only needed a “useful narrative” to achieve their purposes. It only took an unsupported, implausible theory to get Comey and his top aides “fired up.”

“This decision will kill a small but non-trivial number of kids, in exchange for nothing whatsoever.”

German Regulators Recommend mRNA Vaccination for Young Children (Eugyp)

Germany’s vaccine regulatory body, STIKO, has finally recommended mRNA vaccination for healthy children aged 5 to 11. Somewhat unusually, they’re calling for a single dose only, rather than the normally scheduled two, reasoning that the vast majority of young children have already been infected. As is usual, the vaccinators want us to keep vaccinating to head off imagined future events, and no longer to remedy any concrete problem in the present: “The new recommendation is a “precaution against coming as-yet-unknown waves of infections”, explained paediatrician and STIKO member Martin Terhardt … Reinhard Berner, director of the paediatric clinic at Dresden University Hospital, also a member of STIKO, put it this way: “We dare to look into the future, and we want to prepare children for a third Corona winter, so that they come through this time as safely as possible.”


I write this in the midst of conference hell, and I’m too tired and angry to say anything clever about it. It’s just an entirely predictable and totally dumb decision by a bunch of crazy unaccountable regulators. Healthy children with no exposure are at less risk of severe outcome from SARS-2 infection than they are from influenza. Healthy children who have already had Corona stand to gain precisely zero from the miracle mRNA elixir. This decision will kill a small but non-trivial number of kids, in exchange for nothing whatsoever. It will not reduce the circulation of SARS-2, it won’t save Oma’s life, it will do nothing.

“..poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally..”

Monkeypoxmania (CJ Hopkins)

Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!” Yes, that’s right, just as the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic Plague of 2020-2021 were crawling up out of their Covid bunkers and starting to “build the world back better,” another biblical pestilence has apparently been unleashed on humanity! This time it’s the dreaded monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic to central and western Africa that circulates among giant pouched rats, squirrels, dormice, and other rodents and has been infecting humans for centuries, or millennia. Monkeypox causes fever, headaches, muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally.

The corporate media do not want to alarm us, but it is their duty as professional journalists to report that THE MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE! OVER 100 CASES OF MONKEYPOX have been confirmed in countries throughout the world! MONKEYPOX TASKFORCES are being convened! Close-up photos of NASTY-LOOKING MONKEYPOX LESIONS are being disseminated! The President of the United States says “EVERYBODY SHOULD BE CONCERNED!” The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!” Belgium has introduced a mandatory quarantine. The CDC has gone to “Alert Level 2!” “Enhanced precautions” are recommended!

In New York City, the nexus of probably the most paranoid, mask-wearing, quadruple-“vaccinated” New Normal fanatics on the face of the planet, the Department of Health is instructing everyone to wear the masks they are already wearing to protect them from both Covid and monkeypox, and smallpox, and largepox, and airborne cancer, and God knows what other horrors might be out there! Here in the capital of New Normal Germany, Karl Lauterbach, who, despite wasting hundreds of millions of Euros on superfluous “vaccines,” attempting to compulsorily “vaccinate” every man, woman, and child in the country, and otherwise behaving like a fascist lunatic, remains the official Minister of Health, is excitedly hopping up and down and hooting like a Siamang gibbon about “recommendations for isolation and quarantine,” and other “monkeypox containment measures.”

    At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is “not done” to say it, just as in mid-Victorian times it was “not done” to mention trousers in the presence of a lady. Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in highbrow periodicals. – George Orwell, “Freedom of the Press”

    Red- yes I feel it. Silenced. 96 % of 16 yo and over jabbed in Vic Oz. No one wants to hear it so they don’t. I asked for an apology (not that I need it) from a friend recently after every one in their family had been quite ill from Spike. I had done the reading and research (not being a debt-slave) and gave solid data and very clear reasoning to not get jabbed. Can’t teach dumb but even harder to teach New Normals. She of-course says I’m arrogant and have a God complex when telling her I haven’t had Spike illness.

    Another item that’s always on their agenda is central bank monetary policies. I’ll make a bet that Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is very much in the cards. MMT amounts to the basically unlimited creation of currency units to finance whatever governments want. It’s essentially Keynesianism on steroids. It seems inevitable because all the major governments are actually bankrupt. And the Deep State—Davos types—would far prefer to see things financed with inflation than taxes, because that could take stock markets much higher. And make corporate bailouts much easier.

    Lecturer Stuart Hooper takes an academic look at national and international elites. Individuals no longer matter in this mass society where all political parties have been captured. C. Wright Mills points out power is held in the economic, political, military establishments. America was founded by elites, but it isn’t until 1886 and the 14th Amendment when power is transferred from the political elites to the economic world. The postwar Military-Industrial-Complex became a self-reinforcing clique concerned with maintaining power. The iron law of oligarchy says that elites are always ready to justify despotic acts under the pretext they are done for the good of the public. The armed forces of the U.S. seem to have been captured by the transnational elite, used to destroy ideological and political forces not aligned with globalization. Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies are creating a command and control grid for the elite.

    Oxy baby! “don’t care”. I know it’s getting harder to give a shit. Those who have managed to stay natural are going to have to care for the damaged at some point, most likely. Hope I’m wrong as I’m not much of a “people” person. If however it comes to that I’ll do what I can. As for educating the mindless I say don’t waste your time. Find constructive ways to help them with seemingly unrelated things that you may see as related without mentioning the jabs. Also trying to connect the dots of jabbed with bad outcomes I’ve found thatij the cases of unexpected deaths I ask ” was it covid”. The answers can tell a lot, “oh no they were all jabbed up” or some such with add ons such as it was a fast acting cancer or heart issues that were undiagnosed etc. Another tell here In Canada is air travel, if anyone you know flies anywhere they are “up to date” because you have to be to get on a plane.

    In Brief: Hot air and false optimism

    Windfall hot air Even now, the political class is treating rising energy prices as temporary – just like they thought inflation was temporary this time last year. They would like you to believe that Russia – which has continued to supply oil and gas (which were expressly excluded from sanctions)

    The fake horsemen of the apocalypse

    Apocalyptic, however, our latest versions of pestilence, war and famine are certainly not. For sure, a lot of people died from the Covid. And at an individual and family level, every death is a tragedy. But at a national, international and civilisational level, the truth is that many of those who succumbed to the Covid would have died within the next twelve months anyway. Deaths as a percentage of the population make Covid one of the least deadly pandemics we have ever experienced. Six to seven million (those who died “of” rather than “with” Covid) out of a population of nearly eight billion pales compared to the Spanish flu’s 40-50 million out of a population of less than two billion. The Spanish flu, in turn, was a mere echo of the fourteenth century Black Death which wiped out some two-thirds of the European population – and likely as many in Africa and Asia too, although the records are less definitive.

    “I can’t help but wonder…will the people wake up and demand change when the electricity is blacked out and the air conditioner dead in 110 degree weather and food is scarce and expensive?”

    My guess is no, from what I’ve seen so far. Like living in the ‘burbs, keeping up with the Joneses, there is some canyon of imagination that exists where if anyone thinks differently or acts with imagination, they are set upon like a pack of dogs. You would have quite the obstacle course – perhaps impossible – to change your apartment block, cul-de-sac into sustainability, even to earth ships that can survive AZ. At the same time you can go to areas where that is their pack of dogs and if you DON’T build one, but a tech millionaire Utah ski lodge instead, you’re the unwanted outsider. Odd about people that way. But the point is you can stretch only so far with them, and they WILL die – and kill – and kill your kids — to protect the idea of “Us”, whatever that may be. For them that is cars, malls, and the Myth Progress – “Back to Normal”, so no, they will simply die of obstinance thinking tomorrow it will return to “before”, their mental anchor and persistence of vision.

    The powers have this problem as well as they say “There’s no going back” “New Normal” as they attempt to unmoor human psychology entirely and replace it with a new vision of Fascist NeoFeudalism. The unmooring they’ve been at for 50 years is causing deep harm, insanity, and often violence. Of course this is a much-loved feature and not a bug as their previous meddling causes more stress and therefore makes their next meddling easier.

    “Even Lithuania has said that it can help to export Ukrainian grain”

    Was wondering as Lith becomes the mistress of London pimps, what they had to do with attacking the Black Sea and sinking the Russians there. Something like this, but it was a weird statement. Lithuania is in the Baltic. I would use a methaphor like “that’s like Canada saying who can sail in the Persian Gulf,” but they have, they do, other countries do, and it might now be the norm, not the exception. The further away and less power you have over it, the more you mouth off and have opinions these days. Things you actually have knowledge about, and power over, like fixing ourselves, we don’t mention or take action on. Never-ever.

    “Defending Sovereignty: The Fight of Our Lifetime (Malone)”

    The only way the Feds can do what they’ve done is with the power of the purse. To pay for it. This is the 1913 taxing authority, but mostly the “Global” Financial System. Drop this, the Feds become LESS than the states. Again, as it used to be or should be. They call this Balkanization and it might be, but that seems unlikely. It’s just a return to the Pre-Lincoln setup. Anyway, the money is the key – to so many things. Bonds and USD are holding, so for the moment it’s the status quo. However they’ve lost $22,000 Billion in just 5 months, in just the U.S. alone, not counting money flows worldwide transit NY and make a de facto hole here. It seems incredible that no derivatives have detonated yet, but with so much going on, no telling what is happening or where. They probably have but the capacity for lies is infinite, and they just channeled $40B in 40 days to parts unknown.

    “but is likely being viewed almost exclusively by those in no need of conversion.”

    This is the norm. It’s also a sign of a cult. Wouldn’t you want to know what the other guy is thinking? Even if it’s just to get and edge, conquer and abuse them,, the “enemy”, the other guy? If not, it’s a very strange way to handle the field: by promoting pure ignorance and bias? If we go to Iraq, wouldn’t you want to teach everyone Arabic? Islam? Customs? Seems useful. Seems like the path to winning. …But we do not do this, and we’re losing, everywhere we go. This is the same psychology. I don’t like it, therefore it doesn’t exist, the psychology of 8-year-olds.

    Speaking of, heard a term: “Sheeple are people who believe their leaders; Cattle are people who follow the herd.” And cattle can suddenly stampede. I see a lot of both, but it’s a useful distinction, and why they’re fighting the media/Twitter battle so hard. The unblinking blue eye will tell the cattle what to think so they can be directed wherever. The Sheeple just believe whoever has power. They don’t care who, all claimed shepherds are the same.

    “Most of the news media issued a collective shrug in the face of an election that was at the very least unusual,”

    Why? Why did they do that? My question is, “Who sent the memo?” How was that memo sent? Why did they obey the memo unthinkingly when it arrived? Like the Memo HRC sent to the FBI. Instantly obeyed. Why?

    “FBI Spied on 3.3 Million Americans without a Warrant (ET)”

    Yes, but only since 1980, when they put a Trunc line into the AT&T switch boxes.

    “FBI and other intel agencies, who can use the same power against American citizens who had any interaction with targeted foreigners.”

    Hahahaha. Hilarious. Or by 5 degrees of separation, officially, so the very first day they use it to monitor Senators, Judges, Reporters… If you’re too dumb or too busy to read history, this is the way the secret service always captures the government everywhere in history. But it only happens 100% of the time, so, you know, “We’re the Exception” and “it’s different this time.” You’d think paranoid power-hungry maniacs would have more horse sense than to allow themselves to be monitored and recorded all the time. But the Secret Services just let those morons believe they actually run anything and everybody’s happy. Really, it’s like those shopping-cart steering wheels for toddlers, controlling and steering nothing while they hit the horn for mommy, honk-honk. If you’re not going to put AOC, Biden, and McConnell into a retarded group home you have to do something with them.

    Yeah: don’t allow unlimited wiretaps on everyone for 50 years. And don’t fight a land war in Asia. Twice.

    “Comey et al Were “Fired Up” to Pursue the False Alfa Bank Claims (Turley)”

    Again, somehow Mueller investigated all the same claims and didn’t discover this. Not a single thing. …And also didn’t interview any of these witnesses, while having the creators of these claims on his team. So instead of being concerned about national security, Comey was happy and excited? I think and can prove China has purchased many Congressmen and institutions; it does not make me happy. I am not at all elated to hear it.

    “This decision will kill a small but non-trivial number of kids, in exchange for nothing whatsoever.”

    Heard the recent interview with Pfizer VP Yeadon, who simply says, as I do, that you have to simply admit A = B. IF they are killing kids, AND it’s for no scientific reason, with no plausible premise, THEN… Then they are mass-murdering citizens, it’s a depopulation program, and they don’t care if the targets are children or not. IF that is true – provably so – THEN what sort of people are you dealing with and what are they capable of? What are they likely to do to you? Don’t turn away in horror and denial. Just use your God-given head and be honest about it. Then things can improve. They’re outnumbered: tell the truth and the whole thing vanishes.

    “The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!”

    That is, it’s Thursday. The same as every other day since air travel was invented. Monkeypox pops up from time to time but is so exceedingly hard to transmit it extinguishes itself. Tell the truth and the whole thing vanishes. P.S. CV19 has the death rate only slightly higher than H1N1 and Hong Kong. Nothing was shut down, so there was no hyperinflation that killed millions. Soon.

    You should hear the Minister of Health in Oz tying herself in knots with the “don’t say gay” MonkeyPox press conference. Since it’s only transmitting in gay bathhouses right now, and it’s not actually dangerous, and health has reached out to that community, it’s as under control as ever. But the level to which she can hold an hour-long press conference and never name the “community” that’s involved, at risk, and affected, is truly breathtaking. I thought “don’t say gay” was a bad thing? I thought we weren’t ashamed of “them”? So why can their name never pass your lips on pain of death? As a professional and doctor? Do you usually fight diseases by NOT naming the disease, NOT naming the people at risk (women, men, children, elderly, and yes, perhaps, “gay”)? Oh well, I guess they’re following the Fauci plan of killin’ some gay folks. 100, 200 thousand? Who can say, we haven’t seen if they’ll take AZT immunosuppressors yet. Hope so. Profit$$$ are high, Fauci replays his greatest hits on “Now THAT’S What I Call Scienz!”. JHC can we stop this now?

    ” the New Normal Reich, where the masses will be perpetually menaced by an inexhaustible assortment of” fabricated threats that they themselves invented. Until everyone is dead and neo-feudalism has returned. That’s the “New Normal”: feudalism. If you want the emergencies to stop, tell the truth and tell them no. They’re outnumbered, and also inbred idiots who don’t have the brains to push a broom. Look at “W”.

    Davos: Someone suggested we take and average measurement of the carbon footprint of Davos and what they eat and make it the baseline for the general population: we’ll do exactly what they do. They were having imported crab, followed by Spanish acorn-fed pork, then farmed salmon from Norway. As the appetizer. Do as the Romans, I guess.

    Kennedy on the Moon. I have a theory they brought back a slow moving microbe that eats brains and it’s been spreading over the planet ever since. Dementia. Angry, pointless outbursts. Wandering randomly like doodlebugs. Yup.

    Oxy: yes, that’s where I am now. If I’m correct, food will be in shortage, we’ve got a lot of trouble, and their self-selecting suicide will save the rest of us. My task is to tell them, not MAKE them. I will tell, inform, warn, cajole, encourage until I’m blue in the face as you noticed, but at this point I’ve said my say. Death rates are up 6-sigma, 40%, and among the young. This is public. They are immovable. So thanks for saving your food for me I guess? A sacrifice for my kids because they just can’t change to the new world?

    • Grains of Deceit (Saker)
    a global food crisis looming

    Russia is placing terms and conditions on exports and there is a sting in the tail. Similarly, to oil and gas exports, Russia will be forcing unfriendly countries to buy at high prices in rubles or stopping exports altogether, at the same time, encouraging neutral and friendly countries from the south to buy products at a cheaper rate. This has effectively hamstrung both the U.S and the EU and sanctions had already had a significant boomerang effect.

    CNN is the prime source for all disinformation, top class agitators, writing articles based on allegations.

    Lying through his teeth since Romania is currently exporting Ukrainian grain crops and even Lithuania has offered to help export crops as well.

    The crass and cynical blame game implemented by the West continues. The West instead of getting Kiev to implement the Minsk accords in the first place, are now busy with a lot of evolving threats and crises, out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    Note

    This article uses references to corporate Western media outlets and organisations, as it is easier to point omissions, manipulation of information, to show how the West’s infowar gets “hoisted with their own petard”.

    Monkeypox causes fever, headaches, muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally.

    The above numbers are metric tons so far this season. According to this site the Ukraine exported 18,000 MT in 2021. Lots of year left yet to get those numbers up. There is this little nugget as well: “I’m really not that hyped up about the new crop supply impact, specifically for wheat,” said Rich Nelson, Allendale Inc.’s chief strategist.

    That is because more than 95 percent of Ukraine’s crop is winter wheat and it was already in the ground before the conflict began.

    The fate of that crop is more likely to be determined by spring rains than war, he said.

    • Comey et al Were “Fired Up” to Pursue the False Alfa Bank Claims

    Ya see, I keep harping on the fact that judges and prosecutors are spineless cowards and boot licking toffee nosed twats.

    This goes triple for high ‘law enforcement’ officials like pond scum Comey.

    The only thing worst than a Dirty Cop is a child molester.

    They are actually pretty much the same thing in the Empire of Lies.

    And Comey is the poster boy.

    Trump let TWO Attorney Generals stab him in the back. They were actively undermining and conspiring against him instead of covering his back, and he did diddly squat about it.

    Merrick Garland is the latest snake in the grass, truly a pitiful greasey buttplug of an AT, even as lawyers go, he’s as crooked as they come.

    Bill Barr and Jeff Sessions would show their behinds to him in a New York minute. Yes Merrick yes, harder Merrick….please…..

    Ya see, laws don’t matter if they are not enforced or enforced by fiat, unevenly.

    The words on the page of a ‘law’ don’t mean anything anymore.

    And even if they did, the cops, prosecutors and judges don’t do their jobs, they just collect a pay check.

    Yummy pay checks!

    There’s no hope whatsoever because the weak soft pink underbelly of a Republic is the legal system.

    And the Empire of Lies doesn’t have one anymore.

    The Empire of Lies ‘legal system’ is like a used discarded condom floating along down by the dock of the bay.

    You clarified it perfectly (again). Those who are mindlessly “fighting” for a goal called Back to Normal at any/every cost will not be stopped, convinced, or changed. In their minds, Back to Normal is THE most worthy cause! Simultaneously, TPTBe implement the label/tool called New Normal to legitimize the aspects that they know are not coming back. Notice how the idea of NORMAL creates leverage and empowers the myth keepers/makers in both instances.

    So here we are, standing up against the myth called NORMAL. Most at TAE UNDERSTAND and accept that there is no going back to something called NORMAL, and that things called new NORMAL are NOT NORMAL at all – they are abnormal abstractions imposed/forced upon us.

    Yesterday’s NORMAL is a dream, it is bondage.

    In closing there are two perfect recommendations on the table:

    1.”Try to think positively.” Since the only thing we can control is how we respond to the world, the act of choosing to BE positive is a radical act. In this choice we will find the strength and courage to carry on.

    2.“Be still.” You will improve your discernment – to see/know what is TRUTH.

    To attain enlightenment you have to see your nature. Unless you see your nature, all this talk about cause and effect is nonsense. Buddhas don’t practice nonsense. To say he attains anything at all is to slander a buddha. What could he possibly attain? Even focusing on a mind, a power, an understanding, or a view is impossible for a buddha. A buddha isn’t one-sided.The nature of his mind is basically empty, neither pure nor impure. He’s free of practice and realization. He’s free of cause and effect.

    A buddha isn’t a buddha. Don’t think about buddhas. If you don’t see what I’m talking about, you’ll never know your own mind.

    Even if by the push of a button we could make these “powers” all disappear, the damage they have already wrought and the division they have already intentionally sown would take decades to undo.

    When we say we don’t care, and then expound at length, the painful reality is that we DO care. Otherwise we would dismiss the issue without comment. ANY emotion that is evoked by the issue at hand is evidence that we care, whether it is sadness, disgust, anger, etc. To truly not care means we have no feeling associated with it. (P.S. It’s OK to care!)

    “Laws don’t matter if they are not enforced or enforced by fiat, unevenly.”

    So true, and soon the general public will start to catch on. A given system of justice only prevails over anarchy by public acceptance. In older societies, populations had internalized the idea that The King and certain elites were “higher” and thus not subject to the same rules as “the commoners”, but in modern societies, the public’s expectation is that justice will be administered objectively and not play favorites.

    So from here we can choose one of three paths. 1) We can go back to the concept of “privileged classes” where people are no longer equal under the law. 2) We can take down and replace our currently appointed “administrators of justice”. 3) We can massively ignore the laws until anarchy forces change upon society.

    One sure Mark of the Beast is the professed desire to “centralize, centralize, centralize”. Eliminate borders, concentrate assets and control in fewer hands, shrink peoples’ choices so they can’t avoid the undesirable, mandate or prohibit as much as possible. Centralization = Control.

    The answer and the way to defeat these people is to DEcentralize.
    Push everything down as low in the social organization as possible.
    To Big To Fail = TOO BIG.
    Bigger is not better; there is an optimum size for everything, and most of our institutions exceeded that optimum size a long time ago.

    So, let me get this straight. China and Russia have tricked, bribed and enticed the Collective West (principally the UK/USA) to attack Russia and China for the purpose of stealing Russia and China’s resources (grain, natural gas, coal, workforce, market, etc.) which China and Russia already possessed (by dint of BEING Russia and China).

    For some reason or other, I don’t think so. I think it was something a little more Machiavellian.

    Let’s run a hypothetical scenario. Pure speculation.

    Let’s say that I’m China and Russia and I’m sick and tired of the USA and all of it’s nasty shenanigans. Furthermore, I wouldn’t at all mind stealing all of the USA’s stuff and making it my own. But, alas, if I tried anything so risky directly (like with a straight up invasive war of aggression) I would both get my ass kicked AND lose the few possessions I already had.

    Let’s try a longer game.

    First I offer soulless greedy Western financial and industrial elites BAIT that they are emotionally and intellectually incapable of resisting: immeasurably numerous SLAVES. A whole country full of them.

    I sweeten the pot with cheap money, low taxes, lax regulations and the most bribable civil authorities that the world has ever seen. A so-called “business friendly” environment that makes a Wild West brothel in full swing look like Sunday school.

    Switching the world’s industrial base over to slave labor can be a VERY profitable enterprise. While getting immeasurably wealthy from that process I can also use those proceeds (and counterfeiting, too!) to buy and control every single one of the Collective West’s governments, news media, banks, justice systems, educational systems, spy networks and even much of it’s top brass military. Spies and Soldiers are a tough nut to crack, but it’s amazing what is possible with enough money and the ability to make TREASON look just like ordinary politics.

    Now that my hands are firmly on the controls (virtually ALL of the large scale organized controls in existence) and there is no one in charge except me, I then direct the Collective West (principally the UK/USA) to attack Russia and China for the purpose of stealing Russia and China’s resources (money, grain, natural gas, coal, workforce, market, etc.) which China and Russia possess.

    And make special note that I have made damn sure that it is an attack which can only fail. And I mean FAIL as in total and complete debacle. Defeat of the Collective West and victory for Russia and China has to be a lock cinch, slam dunk, absolute friggin’ CERTAINTY. Which isn’t all that difficult since I control pretty much everything that’s anything in the whole damn country.

    The music rises, the Grand Ball opens, and the weird dancing begins.

    When the smoke clears and the dust settles I will have removed the Collective West (principally the UK/USA) as any sort of threat, AND I will have stolen (and now own) all of their stuff.

    In a sense it is a kind of giant circle that winds up coming back to very much the same place: of countries and Empires owning countries and Empires. What’s the point? Why bother? Upon closer examination, however, notice that it is not a circle but a SPIRAL, and that when the whole shebang “comes full spiral” that it is not the same ownership of Russia, China and the Collective West as it was at the start.

    At the start it was in MANY hands, and at the end it is intended to be in FEWER hands. Far, far, far fewer. (as an aside, I sure would like to know who those intended few hands actually are.)

    It’s a moral puzzle, and puzzle solvers get to survive. In my opinion the rulers of the whole damn clown show have been so intent on each other (rulers large and small) that they failed to take proper notice of everybody else, and thereby gravely miscalculated in their Machiavellian visualization of who the moral puzzle actually applies to. They forgot that the moral puzzle applies to EVERYONE, not just the noteworthy. They failed to notice that in the process of battling for more (and ever more) POWER that they were abusing a literally incalculable number of quiet but capable folks who just wanted to be left alone. They’ve never actually bothered to count how many that number actually comes to, but let’s just say it is a very big and very unknown total. And increasingly pissed off, no humor intended.

    And what is the moral puzzle? It is that for anyone to live on Earth for very long that person must earnestly and sincerely answer the question of whether it is better to submit to slavery or to fight against being enslaved, quite possibly suffering severe loss, injury, death or even killing others in the process?

    It is a very very hard question which no one, ultimately, avoids answering.

    My best advice is to keep in mind that the only thing really worth saving is you . . . and I do not mean the temporary housing accommodation called your body. I mean the consciously aware non-material being that is you and your loved and all the rest of us.

For the broken adults…who continue the cycle of abuses. For the truth seekers, seeking courage and tenacity to end the cycle of abuse and neglect.

    “Throwing Stones”

    Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
    Dizzy with eternity
    Paint it with a skin of sky
    Brush in some clouds and sea
    Call it home for you and me
    A peaceful place or so it looks from space
    A closer look reveals the human race
    Full of hope, full of grace
    Is the human face
    But afraid we may lay our home to waste

    There’s a fear down here we can’t forget
    Hasn’t got a name just yet
    Always awake, always around
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Now watch as the ball revolves
    And the nighttime falls
    Again the hunt begins
    Again the bloodwind calls
    By and by, the morning sun will rise
    But the darkness never goes
    From some men’s eyes
    It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets
    Staking turf, dividing up meat
    Nightmare spook, piece of heat
    It’s you and me
    You and me

    Click flash blade in ghetto night
    Rudies looking for a fight
    Rat cat alley, roll them bones
    Need that cash to feed that jones
    And the politicians throwin’ stones
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Commissars and pin-stripe bosses
    Roll the dice
    Any way they fall
    Guess who gets to pay the price?
    Money green or proletarian gray
    Selling guns ‘stead of food today

    So the kids they dance
    And shake their bones
    And the politicians throwin’ stones
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Heartless powers try to tell us
    What to think
    If the spirit’s sleeping
    Then the flesh is ink
    History’s page will thus be carved in stone
    And we are here, and we are on our own
    On our own
    On our own
    On our own

    If the game is lost
    Then we’re all the same
    No one left to place or take the blame
    We can leave this place and empty stone
    Or that shinin’ ball we used to call our home

    So the kids they dance
    And shake their bones
    And the politicians throwin’ stones
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Shipping powders back and forth
    Singing “Black goes south and white comes north”
    In a whole world full of petty wars
    Singing I got mine and you got yours
    And the current fashion sets the pace
    Lose your step, fall out of grace
    And the radical, he rant and rage
    Singing someone’s got to turn the page
    And the rich man in his summer home
    Singing just leave well enough alone
    But his pants are down, his cover’s blown

    And the politicians throwin’ stones
    So the kids they dance
    And shake their bones
    And it’s all too clear we’re on our own
    Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Picture a bright blue ball
    Just spinnin’, spinnin, free
    Dizzy with the possibilities
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down
    Ashes, ashes, all fall down

    Even if by the push of a button we could make these “powers” all disappear, the damage they have already wrought and the division they have already intentionally sown would take decades to undo.

    If TPTB suddenly disappeared tomorrow, there would be another crop of NPD sociopaths would instantly rise to replace them (the rot is from the body, not the head), as the entire CULTure created, supported, selected, adored the previous “powers”, having no appetite for healthy, sane, judicious leadership to begin with…

    A corrupted, SICK CULTure abhors the very spiritual laws written within their spirit & would rather follow madness than change ~ It’s the fruit of toxic EGOcentricity (eg the scienz!), that has blocked-out the Loving, Healing, Creative Power of the Infinite.

    It took me until the last decade to fully realize that “the damage” is multigenerationally self-inflicted 😕

    I say this real reality with great sadness, realizing the future bodes very, VERY badly as a result…

    All the best,

    @citizenx: Neil Young lost me (in 2016) when he dumped Pegi, his wife of 36 years. His tantrum on the vaxx was pathetic. I still appreciate his music. The MOMENT IN TIME captured on many of the albums I reference is what matters to me…they are notches/milestones on the timeline of life.

    I fear I must agree, and think I wrote as much a few days ago. Just as no one is coming to “save” us, no one really “ruined” us either. At least not all by themselves…

    @zersum
    Thanks for the Freightliner post.
    It points out that prepping for disaster is not the only strategy for surviving hard times. Prepping is successful if you can predict the future. Nobody expected parts shortages, so prepping was not done.
    So who steps in and deals with shortages, the hustlers who see a need and figure out how to deal with it in the moment. In hard times, hustlers come out ahead, partly because they understand that enforcement of laws takes a back seat to meeting people’s needs.
    Want to survive hard times? Look into hustling if you have what it takes. If not, join a gang with a good number of hustlers who you can do support for.
    Reminds me of working as an engineer. Sales hustled new jobs. Engineers delivered the product. Took both kinds to make it work.
    Come to think of it, join a gang that can use your skills, hustler or otherwise.

    Monkey pox can spread through the air but very poorly. Even the CDC are telling people not to concern themselves much about airborne monkeypox. Meanwhile, by comparison, omicron had the fastest transmission rate of any disease known except measles.
