“..per the Führer´s own description, such lebensraum was to be found – oh coincidence — “in the Ukraine and intermediate lands of eastern Europe”

NATO’s New World (Vilches)

UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss recently experienced her 15 minutes of glory with a blatant hissy-fit rant policy speech at a London´s Mansion House banquet. She posited that the collective West now needs “a global NATO” to pursue geopolitics anew. Publically, Ms Liz Truss tapped her well-known Rule Britannia Anglo-Saxon exceptionalistic mind-set which now would badly require a much larger “lebensraum”. By the way, the Rule Britannia lyrics ´clearly clearly clearly´ let the world know that “…at heaven’s command…Britons never, never, never shall be slaves”. No way, slaves will exist, but Britons should make sure it´s the other way around, see ? So beware… With an AUKUS core, the strategic concept is “all for one, and one for all” just like ´The Three Musketeers´ except that the world´s livelihood is for real, not a novel. Liz Truss is not a cartoon character either, she is today´s United Kingdom Foreign Secretary.

Lebensraum Ukraine would only be the starting point says Truss very proud of British colonial history. Actually it´d have to be even far larger than what Adolf Hitler originally foresaw with his Nazi foreign policy dictum left on record in “Mein Kampf”. Unbelievably, and per the Führer´s own description, such lebensraum was to be found – oh coincidence — “in the Ukraine and intermediate lands of eastern Europe”… Mind you readers this is a historical certainty, unfortunately not fiction. Curiously enough, WW2 ended when Germany´s dictator shot his lover and himself in the temple only four years after the Wehrmacht had invaded Ukraine pursuing its much-needed Caucasus´ oil. So paraphrasing Mark Twain, and relating Nazis to Ukraine and oil …with the Russians defending and finally winning… history doesn´t repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme.

But no Sir, what Adolf Hitler conceived 90 years ago today is not large enough at all for NATO, sorry. Per Liz Truss (more on her later) it´d be a flashing new “Network of Liberty” yet global in nature, understand ? The time and place of this new “Global NATO” setting Ms Truss says is (1) right now and (2) throughout the whole world, okay ? Furthermore, in the meantime and so as not to waste valuable time and resources, Liz Truss urges current (limited) “European” NATO to send more “heavy weapons, tanks, and also airplanes” to Ukraine ASAP “digging deep into our inventories and ramping up production”. Her obvious Russo-Europhobic objective is to split Eurasia into fractions according to the very British well-proven ´divide and conquer´ philosophy.

“The order was given because the ‘west’ has pushed the Ukrainian president to not make peace with Russia. The consequence will be the assured destruction of the Ukrainian military.”

Ukraine’s Forces Told To Hold The Line Where Russia Pulverizes Them (MoA)

The Russian military forces are grinding down Ukrainian ground forces by extensive use of heavy artillery. The Ukrainian artillery has been destroyed or lacks ammunition.The Ukrainian forces have orders to stay in their position and to hold the line. That only makes sure that Russian artillery strikes will destroy them. The order was given because the ‘west’ has pushed the Ukrainian president to not make peace with Russia. The consequence will be the assured destruction of the Ukrainian military. There are claims that the Russian progress in Ukraine has been slow or has even come to a halt:


“The United States assessed last week that Russian troops were making “slow and uneven” progress in the Donbas, often of no more than “several kilometers … on any given day, just because they don’t want to run out too far ahead of their logistics and sustainment lines,” one senior U.S. official told journalists. But in its daily reports, the Institute for the Study of War noted that Russian forces made no confirmed ground attacks on Monday or Tuesday. It said a Ukrainian artillery strike April 30 on a Russian command headquarters near Izium has slowed the Russian push, and noted that, farther north, a Ukrainian counterattack Monday pushed Russian forces back 25 miles east of Kharkiv.”

Those claims do not hold up to reality. As Clausewitz wrote about the Schwerpunkt in ‘On War’: “[N]o matter what the central feature of the enemy’s power may be—the point on which your efforts must converge—the defeat and destruction of his fighting force remains the best way to begin, and in every case will be a very significant feature of the campaign.” Basing our comments on general experience, the acts we consider most important for the defeat of the enemy are the following: “Destruction of his army, if it is at all significant. Seizure of his capital if it is not only the center of administration but also that of social, professional, and political activity. Delivery of an effective blow against his principal ally if that ally is more powerful than he. Accordingly the Russian military is tasked with demilitarizing the Ukraine, Clausewitz’ task one, and that is what it is doing.


Russia is using the best available means to destroy the Ukrainian military. On the ground that means ruthless systematic mass use of artillery. Reports about the high morale of the Ukrainian soldiers who halt Russian advances are copium when compared with the reality of the battlefield. From the preface of the book King of Battle: Artillery in World War: “Artillery dominated the battlefields of World War I. That was seen in various ways, from wounding patterns and doctors’ clinical data, to memoirs, diaries, and letters, through to changed military doctrine after the war. No nation that had experienced significant ground combat would blithely assume morale could replace firepower. Artillery even holds the dubious distinction of causing a new diagnosis, shellshock.”

“..color revolutions” financed by the Comprador oligarchy under the promise of unfreezing assets seized in the US-European jurisdiction..”

For Those Who Still Don’t Understand (Sergey Glazyev)

A special military operation (SVO) revealed a plan prepared in advance by the US power and financial elite to seize power in Russia. It includes the following components and stages.

1. Wear out the Russian armed forces in a war with well-trained and directly controlled by the Pentagon fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, “stitched” by the Nazis with a vertical of officers appointed by the US and British special services. Turn the population of Ukraine into zombies infected with Russophobia. At the same time, incite the international community against Russia, making accusations of war crimes and genocide against its leadership. On this basis, confiscate Russia’s foreign currency assets and impose total sanctions against it, causing the maximum possible damage. This stage is actually completed.

2. Terrorize the Russian population with shelling of border settlements and military infrastructure, sabotage of transport, and hacker attacks. Hit the public consciousness with a flood of negative fake news and anti-government propaganda through social networks. To impose, through their agents of influence in the financial and economic authorities, an economic policy that blocks the mobilization of resources, including: inflating interest rates, continuing the export of capital, encouraging currency and financial speculation, manipulating the ruble exchange rate, and inflating prices. Thus, the sanctions can be repeatedly aggravated and provoke a collapse in production and a decline in living standards. This stage is in full swing.

3. Provoking protest moods and destructive socio-political actions aimed at overthrowing the legitimate authorities against the background of falling living standards and losses in the course of their activities. The use of the entire arsenal of methods for organizing “color revolutions” financed by the Comprador oligarchy under the promise of unfreezing assets seized in the US-European jurisdiction. At the same time, we are preparing the organizational and ideological foundations for separatist actions in the regions. This stage is under active development.

“Perhaps because the only historic way out of a deep economic recession is a war or housing starts?”

Why is the White House Bragging About Killing Russians in Ukraine? (CTH)

Does Joe Biden intend to take the U.S. into a direct war with Russia? Perhaps because the only historic way out of a deep economic recession is a war or housing starts? Perhaps, because they need a bigger distraction from the political impact of their own policies? Those questions need to be asked and answered quickly, because the White House is about to flip the switch from a “proxy war” into an actual hot war between the United States and Russia. How do we know? Because the Biden administration is openly bragging about their specific military operations inside Ukraine that are killing Russians. Consider:

NYT: “The United States provided intelligence that helped Ukrainian forces locate and strike the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet last month, another sign that the administration is easing its self-imposed limitations on how far it will go in helping Ukraine fight Russia, U.S. officials said.” NYT:”The United States has provided intelligence about Russian units that has allowed Ukrainians to target and kill many of the Russian generals who have died in action in the Ukraine war, according to senior American officials.”

Why would Joe Biden be bragging about killing Russians in Ukraine if he wasn’t trying to provoke us into a hot war? “The administration has sought to keep much of the battlefield and maritime intelligence it is sharing with the Ukrainians secret out of fear it will be seen as an escalation and provoke President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia into a wider war. But in recent weeks, the United States has sped heavier weapons to Ukraine and requested an extraordinary $33 billion in additional military, economic and humanitarian aid from Congress, demonstrating how quickly American restraints on support for Ukraine are shifting.”

“In the target practice galleries of Washington politics, Vlad became the Donald’s avatar.”

Sleepy Joe’s $33 Billion Abomination (Stockman)

Donald Trump has been well relegated to the sidelines of America’s political debate, but the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) lives on, more virulent than ever. The latter is what’s behind Washington’s descent into the current mindless Ukraine war fever—an outbreak of irrationality that makes even the post-9/11 hysteria seem like an orderly discourse. At the center of this madness, of course, is Vladimir Putin, the Devil Incarnate. Prior to February 24th he had attained that designation in Imperial Washington not just because of his rough methods of governance in Russia or small time military forays in the 2008 South Ossetia/Georgia dispute or in putting down alleged terrorists in Chechnya, but because according to the RussiaGate hoax he had thrown the election to Donald Trump in 2016, thereby shockingly interrupting the rule of the bipartisan duopoly.

Accordingly, for the next four years the apparatus of official Washington–including the MSM in cahoots with the national security state—did not cease in its vilification of Putin via the running RussiaGate Hoax, the phony Mueller investigation, the rogue impeachment proceedings and the nonstop MSM linkage of Trump’s unwelcome presence in the Oval Office with the nefarious doings of Vlad Putin. At length, the TDS got so virulent and all-consuming inside the beltway that the resulting enmity toward Donald Trump became coterminous with the demonization of Putin. Consequently, when Trump got ushered off the stage (barely) by the American electorate in November 2020, Washington’s war on the Donald simply got re-focused with fevered intensity on Putin. In the target practice galleries of Washington politics, Vlad became the Donald’s avatar.

Needless to say, with the politicians in both parties foaming at the mouth against Putin, the Deep State and military-industrial complex had a field day hyping Russia into a national security threat that was not remotely justified, but which did massively distort policy. That includes perpetuating the Donald’s insanely bloated national security budget even further to $813 billion in the FY 2023 Biden request; stonewalling Russia’s reasonable proposals of December to reset security arrangements in eastern Europe, which would have precluded the devastation now besetting Ukraine entirely; and, after February 24th, turning the intramural dispute between Russia and its historic vassal and step-child, Ukraine, into a purported history-defining contest between peaceful Democracy and belligerent Autocracy—a struggle that justified launching a global Sanctions War against the very essence of the dollar-based payments and trading system upon which America’s tenuous prosperity precariously rests.

“You remember when his attorney general said, you know, anyone who holds extremist or anti-authority views will be targeted for investigation and potential prosecution by their domestic terrorist unit..”

Tulsi Gabbard Bashes Biden For Calling Millions Of Americans Terrorists (Blaze)

President Joe Biden lashed out at the “MAGA crowd” and supporters of former President Donald Trump on Wednesday. The harsh and derogatory disparagement against tens of millions of Americans prodded former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard to condemn President Biden. On Wednesday, Biden suggested that the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade was a slippery slope. Biden proposed a hypothetical situation, “What happens if you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?” President Biden told reporters at the White House, “Is that legit under the way the decision is written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked?” “Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” Biden said, making a reference to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” movement.

[..] Gabbard was incensed by Biden’s incendiary remarks and slammed the president during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.” “When you look at the President of the United States of America calling millions of Americans, essentially terrorists, people who politically opposed him or voted against him, he’s calling them terrorists in an attempt to intimidate them into silence. And we know this because we’ve heard this before from both him and his attorney general.” Gabbard pointed to the Justice Department’s newly-formed “Domestic Terrorism Unit” that will target the “elevated threat from domestic violent extremists.” “You remember when his attorney general said, you know, anyone who holds extremist or anti-authority views will be targeted for investigation and potential prosecution by their domestic terrorist unit,” Gabbard said.

“So he’s essentially saying that this, quote-unquote ‘MAGA’ crowd are worse than terrorists. This is outrageous.” “And so for every American who’s watching, every American who’s seen this, no matter how you feel about the MAGA crowd, this is an authoritarian assault on our freedom,” the former Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii proclaimed. “And we need to stand together very strongly against this attempt to intimidate and silence anyone who holds political views that are different from or opposed to what this president and his administration are furthering. This is an assault on our democracy.”

“I’m on the warpath!” he declared.”

Elon Musk Expected to Axe Twitter’s Censorship Team, Become CEO (BN)

Billionaire tech entrepreneuer Elon Musk is “on the warpath.” Musk is now “expected to serve as a temporary CEO of Twitter for a few months after he completes his $44 billion takeover of the social media company,” according to CNBC’s David Faber. The Tesla founder and CEO has the Woke establishment in full meltdown, even reportedly bringing the Big Tech platform’s Trump-banning chief counsel Vijaya Gadde to tears. She’s now expected to be axed. Musk, known for his cryptic tweets, alluded to shaking up the leadership team; of course, he did it with a meme. The context for the meme was provided by Newsmax’s Benny Johnson. It regards an interview between Tim Pool and the Twitter chief counsel herself.

“So your platform restricts speech?” Pool asked. “Our platform promotes speech unless people violate our rules,” Gadde replied. “In a specific direction,” he said. “In any direction,” she argued. “It’s about a pattern and practice of violating our rules.” Pool pointed out the obvious: “You have a pattern and practice of banning only one faction of people.” Then, Pool cited a report from Quillette. It found that out of 22 high-profile bannings from 2015, “21 of them were only on one side of the cultural debate.” “But I don’t look at the political spectrum of people when I’m looking at their tweets,” she claimed.


Musk has big plans for one of the most influential social media platforms. At the Met Gala on Saturday, he discussed his vision with the Associated Press. “Well, I mean, the goal that I have, should everything come to fruition with Twitter, is to have a service that is broadly — is as broadly inclusive as possible where ideally most of America is on it and talking!” Musk told the AP. “I think just generally, the — I’m looking for something that’s like I said as broadly inclusive as possible, that’s as trusted as possible as a system, and I hope we are successful in that regard,” he continued. “I’ve also vowed this publicly that we have to get rid of the bots, trolls, scams, and everything,” he added. “That’s obviously diminishing the user experience and we don’t want people to get tricked out of their money and that kind of thing.” “I’m on the warpath!” he declared.

“Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low..”

Musk Blasts Soros ‘Dark Money Groups’ Threatening Twitter Advertisers (ZH)

Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter has the world’s elites in panic mode – with the Biden administration launching a “Disinformation Governance Board” days after his announcement…followed by the United States, the EU, and 32 non-EU countries announcing a “Declaration for the Future of the Internet” that includes language to require web services to remove illegal content and prevent ‘harm’ to users – which is code for mean tweets, among other things. Another globalist, Bill Gates, is talking greasy after Musk compared the world’s former richest man to the pregnant man emoji. Musk’s purchase also prompted a constellation of 26 Soros-linked NGOs to sign a letter expressing concern about the plan – writing that “Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized.”


The authors that under Musk’s management, “Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low,” adding “Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account. We call on you to demand Musk uphold these basic standards of community trust and safety, and to pull your advertising spending from Twitter if they are not.” Those advertising on Twitter would risk their company associating “with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists,” according to the letter. A quick look at the signatories:

Musk responded to the campaign against him by asking “Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to information? Let’s investigate …” adding “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”

“..Clinton and others hope that the Europeans can replace corporate censorship with good old-fashioned state censorship…”

Musk Summoned to Parliament for his Pledge to Restore Free Speech (Turley)

I previously wrote about Hillary Clinton’s call on European countries to pass censorship laws to force social media companies like Twitter to regulate speech even after Elon Musk’s pledge to restore free speech to Twitter. Now the Parliament has called on Musk to testify and to explain his alarming pledge to restore free speech. The Biden Administration’s Disinformation Governance Board head, Nina Jankowisz, previously called upon Great Britain to impose state censorship rules. That call has grown since Musk’s purchase. Until now, a unified front of corporate censors was able to maintain an extensive system of censorship with the encouragement of politicians and pundits, including Joe Biden and Democratic members .

The head of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee in the House of Commons, Conservative MP Julian Knight has assured her countrymen that they can stay calm and censor on. She issued a letter for Musk to appear before the committee to answer for his terrifying suggestion of free speech: “At a time when social media companies face the prospect of tighter regulations around the world, we’re keen to learn more about how Mr Musk will balance his clear commitment to free speech with new obligations to protect Twitter’s users from online harms.”

Like the EU’s censorship plans under the Digital Services Act, the proposed Online Safety Bill would introduce state censorship through the purview of Ofcom (The Office of Communications), the broadcasting regulator in Britain. It would allow the company to fine firms up to ten percent of their global revenue should they violate ill-defined “harm” standards. If passed, Clinton and others hope that the Europeans can replace corporate censorship with good old-fashioned state censorship. This includes confiscatory fines for anything deemed “grossly offensive.“ The bill would allow countries like Great Britain to impose censorship on the rest of the world.

“These challenges are difficult but pale in comparison to reinventing space travel.”

Five Steps to Free Speech in Social Media: A Musk Roadmap (Turley)

5. Protect against Surrogate State Censors.

As it became more likely that Musk could buy Twitter, there was a notable shift in the comments of pro-censorship figures. Hillary Clinton, who has long been viewed as hostile to free speech values, went to Twitter to call on the European Union to quickly pass the Digital Services Act in Europe to force censorship “before it’s too late.” That time table appears to be the Musk takeover when the public will suddenly have a free speech alternative to the once solid alliance of censorship among social media companies. Since figures like Clinton cannot count on corporate surrogates to censor, they are returning to good old-fashioned state censorship. If the DSA is passed, they hope to force Twitter to resume censoring material – a warning echoed by EU officials this week. Congress needs to act to blunt such an attack on American companies seeking to restore free speech values.

At the same time, the United Kingdom is pushing its own Online Safety Act and recently Musk was summoned to Parliament to answer for his alarming suggestion of restoring free speech on social media. The British are assuring citizens to “stay calm and censor on” despite Musk’s pledge. It is threatening to take ten percent of the company’s profits if Musk does not censor users. Musk will have to create firewall or siloed systems for countries forcing censorship. These systems should post tweets with a warning that these users are being subjected to national censorship standards while protecting U.S. users from having their free speech reduced to the lower common denominator.

These challenges are difficult but pale in comparison to reinventing space travel. The greatest asset that Musk brings to Twitter beyond a deep pocket and deep faith in free speech is his legendary creativity. He tends to focus on a horizon rather than the obstacles or opponents before him. Free speech remains a horizonal ideal but one that is attainable for someone with unflagging commitment and creativity. This could be the ultimate “moon shot” for Musk to bring free speech back to the Internet.

2000 Mules (AG)

After the 2020 election, government officials and their allies in the media repeated the mantra that the election was the “most secure in American history,” Dinesh D’Souza pointed out before the premiere of his new documentary film 2000 Mules at Mar-a-Lago, Wednesday night. But how would they know that? D’Souza wondered. Even if they couldn’t prove the election was rigged, “it still doesn’t follow that it was the most secure election in history,” he said. “The only way you could prove that would be if you were to compare the amount of fraud in 2020 with 2016, with 2012, with 2008, with 2004, and show that there has been less fraud now than in any of those elections.”

D’Souza’s question is a good one. Did election officials study the security of every election prior to 2020 to make the determination that the 2020 election was “the most secure ever”? Or were they just spinning another false narrative that benefits one side of the aisle? The movie 2000 Mules handily answers that question. Using state-of-the-art technology, the film convincingly makes the case that the 2020 presidential election was perhaps the most unsecure election ever, and was stolen from former President Trump.

The election intelligence organization True The Vote gathered geospatial and temporal data—amounting to a total of 10 trillion cell phone pings—between Oct. 1 and Nov. 6 in the battleground states of Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Texas. The researchers looked at data surrounding ballot drop boxes in targeted areas, as well as UPS stores and select government, commercial, and non-governmental organization (NGO) facilities. This data, coupled with the surveillance video of the drop boxes, provide damning evidence of a coordinated illegal ballot trafficking operation across critical swing states. “Without free and fair elections, we are not a democracy, we are a criminal cartel masquerading as a democracy,” D’Souza argues in the movie.

The vaccines still haven’t done enough harm, apparently.

FDA Limits Use of Johnson and Johnson Vaccine Due to Blood Clots (CTH)

The FDA has limited the use of the Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccine to only those over 18-years-old due to blood clotting issues. Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine is now limited to adults due to the risk of a rare blood clotting syndrome. FDA – “Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has limited the authorized use of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine to individuals 18 years of age and older for whom other authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines are not accessible or clinically appropriate, and to individuals 18 years of age and older who elect to receive the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine because they would otherwise not receive a COVID-19 vaccine.” (read more)


WHAT CHANGED? – “The FDA and CDC have continuously monitored for and investigated all suspected cases of TTS reported to VAERS. In an updated analysis of TTS cases following administration of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine that were reported to VAERS through March 18, 2022, the FDA and CDC have identified 60 confirmed cases, including nine fatal cases. The FDA has determined that the reporting rate of TTS is 3.23 per million doses of vaccine administered and the reporting rate of TTS deaths is 0.48 per million doses of vaccine administered.”

McCullough: 30% of US Pilots May Have COVID Jab-Induced Heart Conditions (ET)

Are we on the precipice of a major uptick in serious heart problems among otherwise young, healthy Americans due to the mass-disseminated mRNA COVID shots? Observations from several medical experts, including a well-known cardiologist, suggest that we are. Some individuals who appear to be facing worrisome jab-related heart problems are commercial airline pilots. Advocacy groups also say these pilots are being forced to keep mum about their health issues—and that a far greater percentage of them are likely suffering than the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) would like to admit. Joshua Yoder is an airline pilot and co-founder of the U.S. Freedom Flyers (USFF), an advocacy group formed to help transportation industry employees maintain their medical autonomy and oppose federal vax statutes.

As noted by the website American Greatness, Yoder recently disclosed in an interview with Vaccine Safety Research Foundation founder Steve Kirsch that the USFF has already received hundreds of reports of pilots experiencing chest pain and other adverse side effects of COVID shots while flying planes. Of course, people experiencing chest pain caused by jab-related pericarditis or myocarditis (heart inflammation) is concerning enough. But to know that men and women are experiencing these issues while flying commercial aircrafts is deeply worrisome, Yoder says. Plus, many of these airline pilots are reluctant to speak out about their health problems because they fear losing their jobs. “I’m afraid if we keep going down this path,” he said in his interview with Kirsch, “at some point, it’s going to end in catastrophe.”

“If passengers actually knew what was going on at the airlines and the FAA,” he adds, “they would be livid, and everyone would be jumping on a class action suit against all of them.” In his interview, Yoder also shared what well-known Texan cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough said to him in a prior conversation: “if every vaccinated pilot were to be screened, there would be somewhere around a 30 percent loss in manpower” due to new jab-related cardiac issues.

UN: Obesity Levels In Europe At ‘Epidemic Proportions’ (AP)

The World Health Organization says the rates of people who are obese and overweight in Europe have hit “epidemic proportions,” with nearly 60% of adults and a third of children in one of those categories. In a report issued Tuesday, the UN health agency’s European office said the prevalence of obesity among adults is higher across the continent than any other world region – except for the Americas. “Alarmingly, there have been consistent increases in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in the WHO European region and no member state is on track to reach the target of halting the rise in obesity by 2025,” the report said. Among the countries it counts in its Europe region, WHO said the highest rates of obesity were seen in Turkey, Malta, Israel and Britain.

WHO said being overweight or obese is among the leading causes of death in the region and is responsible for more than 1 million deaths every year. Scientists have long warned that being heavy significantly increases the risk of numerous diseases, including respiratory conditions, diabetes and at least 13 cancers. It is also the leading risk factor for disability. “During the Covid-19 pandemic, we experienced the true impact of the obesity epidemic,” WHO Europe director Dr Hans Kluge wrote in the report. He noted that the obese were “more likely to experience severe outcomes of the Covid-19 disease spectrum, including intensive care unit admissions and death.”

Kluge also said that Covid-19 interventions like school closures and lockdowns often raised the risk of gaining weight when people turned to unhealthy diets and were forced to be sedentary. WHO called for countries to adopt policies to improve “environmental factors” linked to obesity, including taxing sugary drinks, restricting the marketing of unhealthy foods to children and efforts to improve physical activity In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about 74% of Americans over age 20 are obese or overweight.

EU Officials Being Trained To Meditate To Help Fight Climate Crisis (G.)

Brussels officials are being trained to meditate to help them tackle the climate crisis as part of a new wave of “applied mindfulness” that seeks to take the Buddhism-inspired practice “off the cushion” and into hard politics. EU officials working on the 27-country bloc’s green deal climate policy are attending “inner green deal” courses intended to foster a deeper connection among decision-makers and negotiators tasked with tackling the crisis. The courses incorporate woodland walks near Brussels and meditation sessions, including one that invites participants to feel empathy for trees and animals to boost “environmental compassion”. Some managers have reportedly shown impatience at being asked to meditate and want to “get on with business”.


But early results from the first 80 participants suggest the course has strengthened officials’ motivation to tackle climate problems and overcome personal despair that little can be done. Mindfulness has boomed in the west in recent years through courses, meditation apps and books. But it has drawn criticism that it has become a “religion of the self”, with one critic warning of “McMindfulness”. However, it is recognised by the NHS as an effective treatment for recurrent depression when delivered as mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. Now advocates of “applied mindfulness” believe it could accelerate consensus-building between climate decision-makers. A recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted the need for “inner transitions” and the potential of meditation to encourage lower-carbon lifestyles.

    The US is walking a razor thin edge in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia…
    Being complicit in the sinking of the Moskva will most certainly change the rules of engagement…
    I fear the step too far by the US (already taken?); Russia, with it’s very deliberate and considered responses may shock the US with an unprecedented blowback…hopefully not nuclear…
    That’s the game being played…as I see it…

    Now that we’re in raging Stagflation – negative GDP with inflation over 8% — can we bring up that under Keynesian models stagflation is impossible?

    Yup, here we are TWICE, with impossible stagflation going on DECADES, and no one notices. Keynes still taught in schools as the exclusive, Fed and policy still exclusively by Keynes. (Except for the part where they ignore Keynes and helpful stimulus is never removed, ever, even after the market has been raging for 5 years at 0% and did it for the third time in 30 years.) We’re at negative real rates for how many years? 20?

    10-year rates spend no time at 3% heading right to 4%. Tripling in 9 months. Up 4% today. with Dow down +1,000.

    Ah, Keynes, we hardly knew ya.

    One-hunned years ago. They could already drop a bomb on a tin can miles away. But now they can just sit around drinking Sambuca safely while having no shells to shoot back. That’s “Winning”, Ukrainian-style. We know the U.S. is committing genocide on Slavs, specifically the Ukrainians. Why are they cooperating?

    Speaking of genocidal wars, the U.S. is targeting for the upcoming hot war on their own people. They already had the cold and hidden war. That’s what Joe said. “every American who’s seen this, no matter how you feel about the MAGA crowd” Hahahaha. As if. Just use the word “Trump” in a sentence, and whatever other words are in it become justified. I’ve been reading about how we should round up and kill every Trump supporter for 6 years now, and the same sentiment for rural people for 30 years. But Hate just feels SO GOOD! It provides the very meaning to life! No one is going to take that away from me.

    “the United Kingdom is pushing its own Online Safety Act”

    Not only will Europe have no property rights but no human rights. If in practice they still have any remaining. If that doesn’t move you, note that all prosperity and capital will flee such a place. If that doesn’t matter, note that minorities will be the first attacked.

    “D’Souza’s question is a good one.”

    It is. But also simple: they opened their mouths and were therefore lying. Election day of, DHS officials said it was “Most secure ever”, having not yet investigated a single complaint, of which there were thousands already, like re-opening the counting at 3am while booting out the election monitors. Videos widely-distributed of putting the same ballots through the machine again and again.

    “FDA Limits Use of Johnson and Johnson Vaccine Due to Blood Clots (CTH)”

    Safe and Effective. We know because it was banned in 12 countries, and now J&J is being banned too. That’s what “Safe” means! It means “So dangerous it was outlawed.”

    “Covid Certification”. This means something else. They need it by July 1, so that’s the date for the economic fail, AND it won’t be useful unless they have another Covid right after. So that is certainly coming. The day after the U.S. Midterms it will appear and lock us down until the day before the next election. I remember making such predictions in 2020 and Lo! Fauci-Magic, it occurred! Immaculate perception. Like the old joke, “The mass killings will continue until morale improves.”

    Yup published their address. “The activists call themselves”Ruth Sent Us” and have published what appears to be home addresses of Justices Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, John Roberts, and Amy Coney Barrett.” Just because it’s called “Ruth Sent Us” doesn’t mean Lorenz isn’t the head of it. Love and tolerance. Gettin’ some folks killed. Not JUST the most dangerous and extreme people in America evah! (Half of all Americans), but all sympathizers in GOvernment, like Rand Paul, half of COngress playing baseball, and the Supreme Court. This isn’t the only one, either. The Inter-tubes are a-Twitter with “Thought-experiment: what would happen if all the Conservative Justices were murdered in their beds? Not that I’m ADVOCATING for any such thing, heavens no.” Like ISIS and murdering Russians anywhere worldwide, such Tweets are made of pure love and are totally legal, remain posted.

    “Swedish Prime Minister Says Integration Has Failed After Migrant Riots: “Our society was too weak,”

    That’s right, this is all your fault and Sweden probably shouldn’t exist. Give up already. The land of vikings and Nobel Prizes is just made up of a bunch of anemic failures. Btw, vote for me! If you want more of these words and deeds. I’m the certified spokeswoman of weakness and failure.

    US Gives Sweden Security Assurances If It Submits NATO Application”

    Aaaaaand there’s your failure writ large. The U.S. is going to pay them to join so we can kill Swedes. We’ve never defended anybody since Kennedy, but HAVE killed Hungarians, Cubans, Iraqis, Yemenis, Libyans, Kurds, Chinese, Americans by the ten thousands… Will they never learn assurances from us are worse than nothing?

    P.S. don’t buy our weapons either. We make planes that don’t fly and guns that don’t shoot and all of them will use gas you don’t have now, thanks to us. Take a note from the guy we ignore: Trade to all and alliances with none.

    Speaking of bulls—t, “Manure Supplies Tighten as Fertilizer Prices Soar”

    You’re kidding right? There is practically no manure in the U.S. and it can’t be shipped anywhere, certainly no further than 5-miles. On the 1,000 year farming practices, there is not enough manure for a mixed homestead FOR THEIR OWN FARM, much less to share with even their papa in the house next door. It’s valuable stuff, but rare. Would you also like to save fertilizer with green manure and crop rotation? Great! Get ready to put 25% of your fields out of service every single year. 25% yield drop*, instantly. (*sort of)

    So they’re so arrogant and ignorant not only will they kill themselves but the rest of us too. They just can’t bother to ask. Now I’m glad I wrote that farming article. Unfortunately it’s not going to come in handy since working backwards to those practices will take decades, and sustainability will cause generation-long yield drops. Not that we shouldn’t do that, but things need to be adjusted.

    This coming winter should cure most of it!
    Having done the small animal husbandry thing for a number of decades I can say that manure is like gold if you’re a gardener. I no longer keep any animals but maintain a large enough garden that we are still eating from last years produce. Finding manure for the garden is now a trip of about one hour one way so I don’t have as steady a supply as I once had. We compost everything except bones, they draw bib animals such as bears. I fortunately live near the ocean and can haul seaweed by the truck load to the gardens and, in my experience it is as good as manure, maybe better. This should help with the culling:

    Earth is a flooded quarry at which God throws pebbles (humans among those.)
    One of these days the pile of pebbles – or one large enough – is going to rock the joint.
    Prepping will save nobody – to pray may.

    [Praying is not begging (for mercy, or for anything else.) Praying is finding answers (a mantra, if you will) suitable to pacify the “I”.
    To each its own: different people, different mantras. Find yours – you’ll be fine.]

    We all do asset management: God provided each one of us with a portfolio, we do what we can to increase gains and soften losses; some fare better than others; some do a finer job hedging their bets.
    Either way, never mind (be at ease): no one stays a poor player (nor a wealthy one) forever; winners & losers trade places all the time. In the long(er)-run, patience(concrete faith) outperforms/outshines gold.

    (More religious than this and someone will have to lend me the cassock – or taqiyah.)

    In human consciousness, religion(faith) is upstream from science, that’s why it will always be purer, closer to men’s soul.

    Before my mother passed she would ask me, “Why do you read all this stuff? You know you can’t make a difference?”
    And I’d say, “Yeah, but when it reaches a peak, I don’t want to be carrying my pitchfork and torch toward the wrong castle.”

    I am absolutely stunned by the single-mindedness, close-mindedness, of those around me. Just stunned. There is no logic, no thinking, no even LOOKING at information that might challenge their (very simplistic, in my opinion) world-view.

    Maybe I’M actually the crazy one? To be so apparently and soundly “out-of-step” with one’s society is discomfiting, mentally.

    My respect for the REAL heroes of the past, who stood up to unimaginable “out-of-stepness”, persecution, pain, etc… has grown immensely. Martin Luther King, for example. I pray for one millionth of his courage, commitment, clarity and fortitude. Just one millionth…

    There is lots to think about again today, but as soon as I saw this information yesterday, I saw a flaw in the logic. Russia knows this is not how the ship was sunk, so this information is for American domestic-consumption only:
    …the White House is about to flip the switch from a “proxy war” into an actual hot war between the United States and Russia. How do we know? Because the Biden administration is openly bragging about their specific military operations inside Ukraine that are killing Russians. Consider:
    NYT: “The United States provided intelligence that helped Ukrainian forces locate and strike the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet last month, another sign that the administration is easing its self-imposed limitations on how far it will go in helping Ukraine fight Russia, U.S. officials said.” …

    Still, it makes the purpose clear of escalating to direct war against Russia, at least as an open option, being developed in American domestic politics.

    From yesterday, you very wisely observed that , “…we march against the Universe We rebel against God, and yet we don’t know why; not our merit, not our fault.”

    What I understand from your statement is that we humans rebel against God but we don’t know why we rebel against Him. Of course God knows. He knows why we do it, why we rebel. So why doesn’t He just tell us why so that we would know, too, and could decide whether to go on rebelling or not.

    Ahh! But, perhaps, He actually IS telling us, and we (in our selfish arrogance) are just not listening?

O Lord our God, help us tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended in the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames in summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it—

    Dept: It’s all Putin’s fault!

    Canadians in most parts of the country are waking up to higher gas prices today, with prices either above $2 a litre,or creeping close to that.

    Prices have jumped by 4 to 6 cents in many urban centres across the country. In Vancouver, the price of regular gasoline reached $2.17. Prices on the Prairies have remained unchanged over the last day, because they jumped up 9 cents three days ago!

    Lowest price in Canada is in Edmonton: … C$1.619 , Vancouver: C$2.169 highest. Me, in Calgary pays C$1.639 per litre of regular.

    Note: … as of week March 22, Canada is producing 5,762 mmb/d of crude oil (2.6% rise Y/Y increase.)

    Self Sacrifice : sunrise garden with coffee pictured again
    https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/self-sacrifice?s=w

    To what degree is our human species programmed to commit mass suicide in hard times?
    Genetically, we respond differently to different situations, emotionally, not with rational assessment.
    We look at the Jim Jones followers all drinking the poisoned Kool-Aid at the same time, or at German blindness to genocide in WW-2 with disbelief.
    A quote attributed to Joseph Mengele MD, speaking to imprisoned subjects, who he was testing to death, haunts me.
    “The more we do to you, the less you believe it.”
    Stress is very hard on us. If we cannot escape, why have stress?
    If we can escape, it is worth the “eternal vigilance” if we can break out and survive.

    At what point do we decide that stress is not needed for a fake threat, or not needed because “resistance is futile”?
    It looks like individuals and cohesive human groups behave differently under inescapable, relentless threat of death.
    Individual humans, prepared or unprepared, have a wide range of endurance capabilities.
    Special forces troops are trained in how to resist psychologically. Some fold, and other wills cannot be broken.

    Cohesive groups support each other emotionally under stress, and usually maintain group cohesion.
    The followers of Jim Jones died together after drinking poison together at the same moment.
    Azov-Brigade nationalists, trapped underground at the Mariupol steel factory complex, face a fairly certain death if they do not surrender.
    They are not surrendering. It appears that they kill deserters who try to surrender.
    They are ordered to hold their positions.
    Those giving them this order are ordering their suicide-by-Russian.
    Those orders are being followed.

    After 3 days freezing in a cattle-car would you remove all of your clothes and go naked with your children to the shower?
    People did this. It looks like everybody went to the showers, whole families, but men separated from women.
    I’m sure that it was easier to go to the showers. Resistance was futile at that point.

    We have the ability to look at history, to look at our human nature in different situations and to look at how people may be gradually driven into situations where there is “no way out”. Some consciousness plans many small steps along the way to the trap, and makes the choice of each step easy, with rewards and punishments.
    No single step suggests the ultimate destination of genocide or personal death. Those threats are hidden until the final and inescapable moment.

    When we begin to have suspicions, what do we do?
    How early in the process do we become suspicious, based upon our reading of history?
    This question does not plague most people, but it always haunted me.
    How would a German Jew, who had options to give up everything and go to another country, know when it was the right action?
    We can look back and see that the beginning of depersonalization of a group of humans marks the point of departure from their having the same rights as “good Germans”. This also happened during the Spanish Inquisition, and in the “killing fields” of Cambodia. It happened to “decadent intellectuals” in the Cultural Revolution.

    Last year, when I saw the de-humanization of “the unvaccinated” beginning, I knew that I had to “stand naked with the Jews”.
    Anything less than putting myself openly in that group would be the beginning of subtle capitulation to the beginning of a genocide.
    We had taught the children to look out for a sign. We traveled to the Anne Frank House, Dachau prison camp, and to the Tuol Sleng “museum” of Cambodian genocide. In each place we saw that normal people had slowly been turned to do this to other normal people.
    Guards often became suspects and prisoners themselves, were imprisoned, tortured and killed.
    Did that spare their souls?

    I really have nothing to present but these questions. We are already on the road to mass killings, but it’s not in our neighborhoods.
    We’re safe here, right? Food and fuel shortages won’t be bad, and certainly won’t lead to mass killings where we live.
    Nobody would go along with that, no matter how hungry, no matter how broadly some local minority might be blamed, no matter how long it lasted, no matter who was already doing it.
    No matter if people started calling them a “Putin-lover”… Right?

    “Slavic genocide”, say some…
    ​ ​Without artillery support in good quantity the Ukrainian military has no chance to hold the line and to stop Russian moves. Any unit which attempts is hold the line will simply be mauled by Russian artillery until it is no longer able to fight. That is happening now. As the Ukrainians have orders not to leave or move their defense lines they either have to give up or die defending them.
    ​ ​By giving ‘hold the line’ orders the Ukrainian leadership is contributing to the Russian demilitarization of the Ukraine.
    ​ ​Why is it doing that? The situation for the Ukraine is hopeless and has been for some time. Why has its President Zelensky not given up? Why does he not agree to Russia’s peace conditions? …
    ..It is the ‘west’ that is preventing Zelensky from suing for peace.

    Elsewhere I saw the view that training of Ukrainian troops , near Lviv, in Western Ukraine, to fight Russia has had to move to Germany, in a much smaller operation. All of the seasoned soldiers are already being chewed up by war. These new weapons take time to learn and much more time to learn to use effectively in battle.
    Many are not applicable to battle, like anti-tank missiles with range a little over a mile, when enemy tanks are behind the artillery batteries, which are pounding you from 20 miles away. The West has some time to prepare other troops for the meat-grinder, if the Ukrainians can appear to hold out until September.
    Poles and Romanians seem to be next in that line-up.

    ​About that Canadian general who surrendered in Mariupol. thanks Eleni.
    ​ ​The Russian armed forces arrested Canadian General Trevor Cadieu in Mariupol on the night of 2-3 May 2022. He is currently in Moscow awaiting to stand trial.
    General Trevor Kadier was apparently not on a mission for his government, but was in charge of biolaboratory No. 1, with 18 staff working under his command.
    ​ ​The National Pulse reported that Hunter Biden, son of US President Joe Biden, and Christopher Heinz, John Kerry’s son-in-law, had organized subcontracting arrangements for Ukrainian research laboratories through their firm Rosemont Capital, on behalf of the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
    ​ ​The ​(jealous?) ​Chinese Foreign Ministry revealed that the United States operates 336 biological and chemical weapons research laboratories abroad.

    ​I like the line, “Zelensky will instruct Biden”.
    ​ ​Hungary has announced they will not stop purchasing oil and gas from Russia and join a blockade of energy products by the 27 member EU alliance.
    ​ ​Hungary will not support sanctions that would make Russian oil and gas shipments to Hungary impossible, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said in a statement on Tuesday.
    ​ ​Speaking in Kazakhstan, Szijjarto said Russian oil shipments via the Druzhba pipeline accounted for about 65% of the oil Hungary needed and there were no alternative supply routes that could replace that. (link)
    ​ ​Slovakia has also announced they will not participate, which makes any collective EU action problematic. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is reported to be using his connection to the U.S. and Joe Biden in an effort to force the EU to deliver additional sanctions. Essentially, if an EU country does not fall in line, Zelenskyy will instruct Biden not to support that EU country with the money congress is preparing to use as blackmail.​..if you look closely at the $33 billion spending demand from the White House, it’s clear to see the U.S. State Dept, specifically those who are currently operating the proxy war along with the CIA, are positioning the funds for use as bribes to EU allies​.
    ​ ​Any deal on Russian oil would require the consent of all 27 EU members, meaning it could not pass without Hungary and Slovakia’s approval. The bloc agreed on an embargo on Russian coal in the fifth package last month, while it has not yet ventured into gas.

    On Wednesday, (president) ​Biden suggested that the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade was a slippery slope.
    ​ ​Biden proposed a hypothetical situation, “What happens if you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?”…​ (Huh, come again, Sir?)
    ​ ​”Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” Biden said, making a reference to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” movement.​..​
    ​(Former Hawaiian Congresswoman, Tulsi) ​Gabbard was incensed by Biden’s incendiary remarks and slammed the president during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
    ​ ​”When you look at the President of the United States of America calling millions of Americans, essentially terrorists, people who politically opposed him or voted against him, he’s calling them terrorists in an attempt to intimidate them into silence. And we know this because we’ve heard this before from both him and his attorney general.”
    ​ ​Gabbard pointed to the Justice Department’s newly-formed “Domestic Terrorism Unit” that will target the “elevated threat from domestic violent extremists.”
    ​ ​”You remember when his attorney general said, you know, anyone who holds extremist or anti-authority views will be targeted for investigation and potential prosecution by their domestic terrorist unit,” Gabbard said. “So he’s essentially saying that this, quote-unquote ‘MAGA’ crowd are worse than terrorists. This is outrageous.”​

    ​Glenn Greenwald: ​Homeland Security’s “Disinformation Board” is Even More Pernicious Than it Seems
    The power to decree what is “disinformation” now determines what can and cannot be discussed on the internet. It is now in the hands of trained disinformation agents of the U.S. Security State.

    Death is a “serious side effect”, of course.
    ​ ​A German study has found that the number of serious side effects after Corona vaccines was 40 times higher than previously reported. The Charité, a well-known hospital in Berlin, interviewed 40 000 vaccinated people after they had received their mandated jabs.
    ​ ​The interviews showed that the number of serious side effects was 40 times higher than previously reported by medical supervisors the Paul Ehrlich Institute…

    Study of 23 Million People Shows Risk of Myocarditis After COVID Vaccines
    https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/study-myocarditis-covid-vaccines-jimmy-dore/?

    ​That study is excerpted here:
    SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination and Myocarditis in a Nordic Cohort Study of 23 Million Residents
    Conclusions and Relevance: Results of this large cohort study indicated that both first and second doses of mRNA vaccines were associated with increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis. For individuals receiving 2 doses of the same vaccine, risk of myocarditis was highest among young males (aged 16-24 years) after the second dose.

    ​Meryl Nass MD points out that people who got one shot, or even two, appear to mostly be avoiding the COVID vaccines at this point.

    @D Benton Smith

    What drives a creator? He/she looks around and is not satisfied with what’s there: ‘Something has to be done!’ And creation gets in motion.
    God’s the Supreme Creator, The Everlasting Dissatisfaction – we fail to see this because we’re drenched in dualism and intoxicated by hope, the path required to fulfill our purpose as thoughtless lawbreakers.
    Whether one believes in a perfect Universe or in an imperfect one, coming to terms with the transient nature of ourselves and our achievements requires an hefty – some will say cruel – dose of hopeless selflessness, one that many simply can’t seem to bear, or are unaware of.
    “Wisdom” is not a collective aptitude, just a “mellow curse” of the lonely (and “madness” its “hardcore” version.)

    Cheers

    @Mr. House: different local taxation-entities levy different rates of tax upon gasoline, I believe.
    Some places may have different contracts than others. Prices vary markedly over a period of days along my frequent 100 mile drive. Our local Valero, our local Costco, and 2 grocery stores of the same chain, in different rural communities are what I largely monitor. Any one of them might win on one day and (except Costco) be most expensive a couple of days later.
    The stations that are always cheapest in their neighborhoods appear to have it as a business model. People go in and buy other things, too.

    My state doesn’t have local fuel taxes, just state and fed .gov. So why the difference? I’ve observed that since 2008 just about all the subsidies and investment money has gone into the cities (healthcare, higher ed, ect) Just more punishment for rural people?

    @boilingfrog: “I am absolutely stunned by the single-mindedness, close-mindedness, of those around me. Just stunned. There is no logic, no thinking, no even LOOKING at information that might challenge their (very simplistic, in my opinion) world-view.”

    Bingo. My experience precisely.

    @Mr. House: It’s hard for me to find specific information on local fuel taxes, except that they exist in some places.
    When I look at Texas fuel taxes specifically, I find that I was mistaken.
    I know there are always some places just out of some towns, on the interstate, that are always cheaper.

    Sorry, I was wrong.
