It’s not very clear what is happening with the Ukraine ‘counterattack’. It’s taken Russia by surprise, for sure, but there appears to have been hardly any fighting. The Russians simply withdrew, with very few casualties or wounded. And this map of the “salient” doesn’t look all that good for Ukraine. Fish in a barrel.







Bad start, Chuckie! That looks awful. In the internet age, people get to see these things.









Zelensky To Headline US Defense Industry Conference (Hill)

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will address U.S. defense contractors later this month when he headlines the annual Future Force Capabilities Conference and Exhibition hosted by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Zelensky is scheduled to speak at the event Sept. 21, according to the program for the event available on the NDIA’s website. Oleksii Reznikov, Ukraine’s minister of defense, is also scheduled to speak that day. News of the appearances was first reported by Reuters, which noted that the officials will speak via video link. Zelensky is expected to appeal for more weapons for his country during his speech, the outlet added.

News of the Ukrainian president’s speech to the NDIA — whose membership includes defense industry giants like Raytheon Technologies, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics — comes as Kyiv looks to fend off Russia’s invasion as it drags through its sixth month. Eight defense contractors — including Raytheon, Lockheed and General Dynamics — attended a meeting at the Pentagon in April to discuss how the U.S. could speed up production to help Ukraine fend off Moscow’s war. The U.S. has committed $15.2 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden administration, including $14.5 billion since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24.

US Military Aid To Ukraine Grows To Historic Proportions (IC)

SINCE RUSSIA’S UNPROVOKED invasion of Ukraine in February, the U.S. government has pumped more money and weapons into supporting the Ukrainian military than it sent in 2020 to Afghanistan, Israel, and Egypt combined — surpassing in a matter of months three of the largest recipients of U.S. military aid in history. Keeping track of the numbers is challenging. Since the war started, U.S. officials have announced a flurry of initiatives aimed at supporting Ukrainian defense efforts while keeping short of a more direct involvement in the conflict. On Thursday, on a surprise visit to Kyiv, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced a new $675 million package of U.S. military equipment as well as a $2.2 billion “long-term” investment to bolster the security of Ukraine and 17 of its neighbor countries.

Weeks earlier, President Joe Biden unveiled a $3 billion aid package, the largest yet, symbolically choosing Ukraine’s Independence Day for the announcement. The administration noted on that occasion that the total military assistance committed to Ukraine this year had reached $12.9 billion, more than $15.5 billion since 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea. And this month, Biden also asked Congress to authorize an additional $13.7 billion for Ukraine, including money for equipment and intelligence.

Because the assistance is drawn from a variety of sources — and because it’s not always easy to distinguish between aid that’s been authorized, pledged, or delivered — some analysts estimate the true figure of the U.S. commitment to Ukraine is much higher: up to $40 billion in security assistance, or $110 million a day over the last year. This assistance is believed to be playing an important role in the advances Ukraine is making in an ongoing offensive to retake territory seized by Russia earlier this year; the cities of Kupiansk and Izium are reported to have just been liberated. What is clear is that the volume and speed of the assistance headed to Ukraine is unprecedented, and that legislators and observers are struggling to keep up.

[..] “The U.S. is really preparing for a long war. … It’s actually preparing for endless war in Ukraine,” said Stephen Semler, co-founder of the Security Policy Reform Institute, a grassroots-funded U.S. foreign policy think tank that has been tracking the assistance. “They’re saying, ‘We’re only doing this long-term approach because Putin is the one insisting on doing so.’ And that could be right — but at the same time, it’s not like the U.S. is expressing much confidence in its diplomatic skills to end the conflict, rather than just trying to outlast Putin.”

A lot of pressure on Putin to go big.

The Izium Withdrawal – A Catalyst For ‘Starting In Earnest’ (MoA)

Russia pulled back from Kiev and started phase two of the war. Since then the Luhansk oblast and the land corridor to Crimea, especially Mariupol, have been won. The liberation of the Donetsk Republic has stalled. The number of Russian and allied forces fighting the war was kept steady or even decreased over time. Meanwhile the Ukrainian forces have grown manifold. They are getting a very significant amount of arms from ‘western’ sources and new promises to keep those supplies coming. Even when they are armed to a lesser degree, higher numbers of men do matter over time. This made potentially costly defeats, like recently at the Izium front, possible. The Russian military has readjusted to this threat by decreasing the held territory and by concentrating on the original aims of the war.

The Russian public, which at first did not fully understand why the war was necessary, has since grown in its awareness. It now understands the big game that is played against its country. It demands to adjust the level of resources put into the war to the one needed for a decisive victory. That is why Dima concludes that: “We can say that today was the best ever [..] day for the Russians in the territory of Ukraine.” It is now likely assured that they will be liberated. One way or another. I also believe that the withdrawal from the Izium region, which left behind a significant number of pro-Russian civilians under deadly threats from fascist ‘filtration’ groups, will be the catalyst for a significant escalation on the Russian side. I may, like so often, be wrong. There is still an intermediate play to come.

The 3rd Russian Corps, formed from well paid reservists, armed with new weapons and now reportedly deployed south of the Donbas region, might be a game changer. If it moves north, and manages to role up the Ukrainian fortifications at the Donetsk line from behind, it may become the decisive force. But the establishment of the mobile Ukrainian forces that in recent days moved, largely unopposed, towards the Oskol river, is a new card which the Ukrainians can play again against any weak spot in the Russian lines. The Russian public, softly led by the Kremlin through Russian media, is now likely to demand more. That must not mean the total mobilization of the Russian military. ‘Western’ claims that Russia is isolated are wrong. It has many friends it can call upon to contribute to its efforts. Diversion moves against the U.S. military in many regions of the world are just one of several possibilities.

Time is always the third force on the battlefield. Both opponents have to play against it. Europe is currently starving itself by boycotting Russian energy resources. That is unsustainable and it will, over time, have to stop following its current U.S. directed policies. Economically the Ukraine is broke and it can not, despite foreign subsidies, sustain a long war. There are also potential political changes within the U.S. that will play a role. Still, the game must be won on Ukrainian grounds. Russia must up its game. On July 7, in a session with Duma leaders and party factions heads, Putin said: “Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Well, what can I say? Let them try. We have already heard a lot about the West wanting to fight us ”to the last Ukrainian.“ This is a tragedy for the Ukrainian people, but that seems to be where it is going. But everyone should know that, by and large, we have not started anything in earnest yet.” Well, now may be the time to do so.

There appear to be a lot of foreign fighters involved.

Russian Military Explains Partial Withdrawal (RT)

The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed withdrawal of troops from multiple locations across Ukraine’s Kherson region. The development comes amid a Ukrainian offensive in the area. “In order to achieve the goals of the special military operation, a decision was made to regroup troops in the areas of Balakleya and Izyum in order to build up efforts in the Donetsk direction,” the Russian military said in a statement on Saturday. The troops stationed in the area have been “re-deployed” over the past three days into territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the ministry claimed. During the operation, the military has performed a “number of distracting and demonstration activities imitating the real action of troops,” it added, without providing any further detail on said maneuvers.

In order to prevent “damage to Russian troops,”the military has been subjecting Ukrainian units in the area to “powerful” artillery, missile and aircraft attacks, the ministry said, claiming destruction of over 100 armor pieces and artillery, as well as elimination of “more than 2,000 Ukrainian and foreign fighters” in the past three days. The withdrawal comes amid a massive Ukrainian offensive that was launched in Kharkov Region on Thursday. The assault was preceded by attempts to advance in other areas, namely near the Russia-controlled southern Ukrainian city of Kherson.

Are We Indeed Headed Into WWIII And What Can Save Us? (Doctorow)

Izyum is close to the Russian-Ukrainian border southeast of Kharkov and is a major logistical base for munitions and weaponry that are sent onward to support the Donbas operation. The latest information on the Russian side appears to be that the Russians have now dispatched large numbers of reservists to this area to hold their positions. They also speak of intense artillery duels. We may well assume that both sides have experienced heavy loss of life. As yet, the outcome is unforeseeable. Meanwhile, Russian war correspondents on the ground in Donetsk insist that the Russian advance towards Slavyansk, in the center of the former Donetsk oblast, is continuing without pause, which suggests that the strikes on their munitions stores claimed by the Ukrainians have not been totally effective. If Slavyansk is taken in the coming few weeks, then Russia will quickly assume control of the entire territory of the Donbas.

In last night’s talk show program, host Vladimir Solovyov said that this latest push in the Ukrainian counter-offensive was timed to coincide with the gathering at the Ramstein air base, Germany of top officials from NATO and other allies under the direction of the visiting U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. If the Ukrainian efforts were failing in the field, then the cry would go up: we must provide them with more weapons and training. And if the Ukrainian efforts in the counter-offensive were succeeding, those in attendance at Ramstein would hear exactly the same appeal to aid Kiev.

Though Evening with Solovyov, on air from about 23.00 Moscow time, offered viewers some few minutes of video recordings from the opening of the Ramstein gathering, far more complete coverage was provided to Russian audiences a few hours earlier by the afternoon news show Sixty Minutes. Here, nearly half an hour on air was given over to lengthy excerpts from CNN and other U.S. and European mainstream television reporting about Ramstein. Host Yevgeni Popov read the Russian translation of the various Western news bulletins. His presentation clearly sought to dramatize the threat and to set off alarm bells.

For his part, Vladimir Solovyov went beyond presentation of the threat posed by the United States and its allies to analysis of Russia’s possible response. He spoke at length, and we may assume that what he was saying had the direct approval of the Kremlin, because his guests, who are further removed from Power than he is, were, for the most part, allowed only to talk blather, such as the critique by one panelist of a recent pro-Ukraine, anti-Russia article in The New York Review of Books by Yale professor Timothy Snyder, who counts for nothing in the big strategic issues Russia faces today.

So, what did Solovyov have to say? First, that Ramstein marked a new stage in the war, because of the more threatening nature of the weapons systems announced for delivery, such as missiles with accuracy of 1 to 2 meters when fired from distances of 20 or 30 kilometers thanks to their GPS-guided flight, in contrast to the laser-guided missiles delivered to Ukraine up till now. In the same category, there are weapons designed to destroy the Russians’ radar systems used for directing artillery fire. Second, that Ramstein marked the further expansion of the coalition or holy crusade waging war on Russia. Third, that in effect this is no longer a proxy war but a real direct war with NATO and should be prosecuted with appropriate mustering of all resources at home and abroad.

“There are few continents in such a difficult situation as ours, but only our continent is making its own life so much harder..”

EU Has Run Out Of Energy – Orban (RT)

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed the European Union’s energy shortfall on bureaucrats and environmentalists, saying his own country is protected from the crisis. “If we want to dig to the bottom of the problems, we always end up in the same place: the issue of energy. And the situation is that Europe has run out of energy,” Orban wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday. The premier blamed the situation on“fundamentalist greens and the bureaucrats”playing “geopolitical games,” arguing that the bloc is refusing to use “different energy sources” for “political reasons,” driving up the cost of living and damaging its industries.

“There are few continents in such a difficult situation as ours, but only our continent is making its own life so much harder,” Orban said, pledging to do everything “needed by the homeland.” We will not have any shortage of energy. This is not a prediction, this is a statement of fact. There will be gas in Hungary and enough electricity. In late August Hungary secured a deal with Russian energy giant Gazprom for additional natural gas supplies, pumped via Serbia. Hungary is one of the few EU member states to comply with the Moscow’s ruble payment requirement for gas deliveries.

However, Budapest is also moving to cut energy consumption. Earlier this week, the government introduced an 18-degree Celsius temperature cap in all public institutions across the country. The authorities have also instituted a mandatory slashing of gas consumption for state institutions, except hospitals and social housing facilities. Hungary has repeatedly criticized EU sanctions against Russia introduced over the conflict in Ukraine. Budapest argues that the restrictions have failed to produce the intended result, while disrupting the supply of natural gas to the bloc and sending energy prices to unprecedented highs.

Greek Citizens Saving On Food To Pay For Energy (RT)

A growing number of Greeks are cutting back on food to pay their taxes and energy bills, a survey by the General Confederation of Greek Workers and the Labor Institute has shown. When asked if rising prices had forced them to spend less on basic food items, 20% of respondents answered “much less” and 51% answered “less,” while a quarter reported “little” change in their spending habits and only 4% said the situation had not changed for them at all. A majority noted that the change in their spending habits had come from the necessity to pay more for energy. Nearly half of respondents (47%) said they expected a “difficult winter” as energy prices continue to rise, while one in five said they may not be able to pay for energy bills in the coming months “at all.”

“The Greek economy and society, after years of austerity, are facing a new wave of price increases and revaluation of basic goods, and stagnant incomes threaten the purchasing power of many households and social groups,” the authors of the survey conclude. They suggest that the cost of living crisis in the country could be solved only through government intervention, for instance, by hiking the minimum wage, reducing excise taxes on energy and food, and imposing a tax on energy companies’ excess profits.

The Greek government is already subsidizing energy bills for its residents, having started the practice last year. Last month, it vowed to spend almost €2 billion ($1.98 billion) subsidizing growing power bills in September, covering up to 100% of the increase for the poorest households. However, analysts say subsidies may not be enough, with inflation remaining close to its highest level in nearly three decades – 11.4% – as of last month, while natural gas prices soared 261.3% year-on-year and electricity costs were up 38.5%, according to data from the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT).

Inevitable all over Europe. Who will sink into a depression?

German Recession ‘Inevitable’ – Deutsche Bank

The engine of European economic development, Germany, is set for a contraction, Deutsche Bank CEO Christian Sewing warned this week, as cited by CNBC. According to the media outlet, Sewing said in a speech at the Handelsblatt Banking Summit in Frankfurt that the war in Ukraine “destroyed a number of certainties” on which the global economic system had been predicated over the past few decades. He reportedly cited disrupted global value and supply chains, along with a bottleneck in the labor market and a shortage of gas and electricity leading to soaring costs, as key reasons why the Eurozone inflation is at record highs. “As a result, we will no longer be able to avert a recession in Germany. Yet we believe that our economy is resilient enough to cope well with this recession — provided the central banks act quickly and decisively now,” Sewing reportedly stated.

The Deutsche chief pointed out that, for now, many in Germany still have pandemic savings to fall back on in order to meet skyrocketing energy costs, while most companies remain “sufficiently financed.” “But the longer inflation remains high, the greater the strain and the higher the potential for social conflict,” he warned. Sewing also urged the German leaders to accelerate the nation’s decoupling from China. He indicated that China accounts for around 8% of German exports and 12% of imports, while more than one-tenth of the sales of companies listed on the German DAX stock index go to China. “Reducing this dependency will require a change no less fundamental than decoupling from Russian energy,” the chief executive said.

Hungary On ‘Edge Of Abyss’ In EU – Czech Minister (RT)

Hungary’ stance on Russia and the conflict in Ukraine could potentially see it exiting the EU, the Czech European affairs minister has warned. The EU is “a unity of many voices” that always finds common ground despite any disputes, Mikulas Bek told Cesky Rozhlas Plus radio on Thursday. “Negotiations are often tough in the EU, and many countries could engage in them. But Hungary, in my opinion, has come a long way, reaching the edge an abyss, and now it has to decide whether to go back from that edge or risk a jump, the consequences of which I don’t even want to speculate on,” the minister said. On the prospects of Budapest leaving the EU altogether, Bek said it’s theoretically possible.

Budapest has remained relatively neutral since the launch of Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine in late February, and refused to send weapons to Kiev unlike many of its neighbors. It has been critical of the EU sanctions against Russia, calling them ill-conceived and self-defeating. Hungary, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy, is exempt from the bloc-wide ban on Russian oil. The Czech European affairs minister, whose country currently presides over the EU Council, pledged to work hard in the coming months to make sure Hungary stays in line with European policies. “A small positive sign” was that Budapest backed down on its demand to remove three prominent Russia businessmen – Alisher Usmanov, Pyotr Aven and Viktor Rashnikov – from EU sanctions earlier this week, Mikulas Bek added.

Listening to George Webb in the video below, something tells me Paul Huck won’t be the Special Master. Which is a shame. But then again, shame is all the US has left by now.

Trump Team And DOJ Suggest Rival ‘Special Master’ Candidates (G.)

The US justice department and lawyers for Donald Trump were unable to agree Friday night on who to have as the so-called special master to review for potential privilege protections the materials that the FBI seized from the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort earlier this month. The justice department and Trump met a deadline to submit a joint filing but failed to reach consensus on most of the key issues at stake: not only the identity of the special master but also the scope of the work, and who should pay for the added expense. With both sides unable to agree on who should serve as the special master, the justice department and Trump’s lawyers each proposed two candidates, saying they would inform the judge overseeing the case, Aileen Cannon, on their positions after the weekend.

The justice department proposed two retired federal judges: former US district court judge Barbara Jones, who has previously served as a special master, and Thomas Griffith, a former US appeals court judge for the DC Circuit and a lecturer at Harvard Law School. Trump’s lawyers proposed a federal judge and an attorney in Florida: former US district court chief judge Raymond Dearie, one of four judges who authorized a wiretap on former Trump 2016 campaign aide Carter Page, and former Florida deputy attorney general Paul Huck. The disagreements between the two parties on the already contentious special master issue – the government earlier filed a notice of appeal against the order appointing the arbiter – were more numerous than the areas of consensus.

On what materials should be examined, the justice department said the special master should not review documents with classified markings or potentially subject to executive privilege, while Trump’s team said all documents should be reviewed. “The special master should not review documents with classification markings; should not adjudicate claims of executive privilege (but should submit to [the National Archives] any documents over which such claims are made),” the justice department said. On what access each side should get to the documents, the justice department said it wanted to review proposed protection designations before they went to the special master, while Trump said they should remain protected to protect the process.

“Initially we were told that Trump possessed “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons” that he might sell to a foreign government like Saudi Arabia. This shocking accusation has been quietly dropped.”

Declassify the Documents From Trump’s Basement (Leonard Goodman)

Whatever your feelings about former President Trump, there are reasons to be skeptical when government officials say it was necessary to raid his Florida home to recover classified documents that threatened national security. Like the former president, I was once accused by the government of mishandling classified information connected to my representation of a detainee at Guantanamo Bay. There was nothing in my client’s file that posed any danger to national security. My client was an innocent shopkeeper who was sold to the Americans back in 2003 when the U.S. was paying bounties to corrupt Afghan warlords to turn in Al Qaeda or Taliban fighters, and then shipping those men 8,000 miles to our newly built prison camp in Cuba. The government decided to classify every document in the detainee files as “secret,” not to protect national security, but so it could lie with impunity and tell the American people that the prisoners at Gitmo were the “worst of the worst,” and “terrorists” captured on the battlefield.

I never revealed any classified information. I got into trouble after writing an article criticizing the government’s practice of classifying certain evidence above the security clearance level of the detainee’s lawyer, making it impossible to challenge. Following a hearing at the Department of Justice, I was allowed to keep my security clearance long enough to see my client released back to his home and his family after 12 years of unjust imprisonment. I was never in serious legal jeopardy. But the experience opened my eyes to the ways that our government abuses its power to classify information as “secret” to protect its own officials from embarrassment or criminal exposure. Since 9/11, the people most aggressively pursued for mishandling classified materials are whistleblowers, not traitors.

Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange revealed official crimes such as the murder of unarmed Iraqi civilians and journalists. Daniel Hale revealed that our drone assassination program regularly slaughters innocent civilians, contrary to public statements about surgical strikes. John Kiriakou revealed inconvenient facts about our torture program. Edward Snowden revealed an illegal mass surveillance program. All these truth-tellers were aggressively pursued under the Espionage Act. Assange may die in prison for telling the truth about the crimes of our leaders.

While Trump may not fit the mold of a selfless whistleblower, there is still cause for concern. First, the official justifications for the raid on Mar-a-Lago are highly suspect. Initially we were told that Trump possessed “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons” that he might sell to a foreign government like Saudi Arabia. This shocking accusation has been quietly dropped. Now we are told that the government has “grave concern” that Trump might blow the cover on “clandestine human sources” described in the mainstream media as the “lifeblood” of our intelligence community. “Disclosure could jeopardize the life of the human source,” a former legal adviser to the National Security Council told the New York Times.

“..despite a calculated increase in home value of $1.5 trillion..”

“Consider this the cost of going green.”

US Household Net Worth Drops $6.1 Trillion in Q2 (CTH)

In the second quarter (April, May, June) 2022, the total U.S. household wealth dropped $6.1 trillion, despite a calculated increase in home value of $1.5 trillion. The majority of the loss is connected to a drop in Corporate Equity (stock market) and household investment in the stock market. FED “The net worth of households and nonprofit organizations declined $6.1 trillion to $143.8 trillion in the second quarter. The value of stocks on the household balance sheet declined by $7.7 trillion, while the value of real estate increased by $1.5 trillion.” Keep in mind this is backward looking data, and after a period of decelerating rates of growth, the overall real estate market is now in a period of decline as calculated for the most recent month of July [DATA].

The equity position of homeowners is now considerably less than the equity position when the feds calculated the second quarter household wealth (two months ago). Part of the issue goes back to what we have been discussing with inflation and specifically energy driven increases in fuel and electricity. Inflation sucks money out of the economy, making people less wealthy. Energy inflation sucks money exponentially faster out of each household, potentially making the already working-class poor, much poorer. The higher prices paid for housing, food, fuel and energy do not contribute to anything, the increased costs are just sucked out of the consumers’ pockets without generating any additional value. It just costs more to live, and that reduces wealth. Consider this the cost of going green.

“..more than 11 million reports of adverse effects..” “We know that these numbers just about represent between 1% and 10% of all real events.”

Declaration Of International Medical Crisis Over ‘Covid-19 Vaccines’ (DS)

We, the medical doctors and scientists from all over the world, declare that there is an international medical crisis due to the diseases and deaths co-related to the administration of products known as ‘COVID-19 vaccines’. We are currently witnessing an excess in mortality in those countries where the majority of the population has received the so-called ‘COVID-19 vaccines’. To date, this excess mortality has neither been sufficiently investigated nor studied by national and international health institutions. The large number of sudden deaths in previously healthy young people who were inoculated with these ‘vaccines’, is particularly worrying, as is the high incidence of miscarriages and perinatal deaths which have not been investigated.

A large number of adverse side effects, including hospitalisations, permanent disabilities and deaths related to the so-called ‘COVID-19 vaccines’, have been reported officially. The registered number has no precedent in world vaccination history. Examining the reports on CDC’s VAERS, the U.K.’s Yellow Card System, the Australian Adverse Event Monitoring System, Europe’s EudraVigilance System and the WHO’s VigiAccess Database, to date there have been more than 11 million reports of adverse effects and more than 70,000 deaths co-related to the inoculation of the products known as ‘Covid vaccines’. We know that these numbers just about represent between 1% and 10% of all real events.

    “NPR Slams Biden for Meeting with Historians because They Were All “White””

    NPR = Blinding racists. Since this is no longer news, should we stop mentioning it? I wonder on what basis they hire as it clearly is not for merit, or at least not for years now. Hire on the basis of race, I expect. You are a good and moral person in exact proportion to melanin, same racism as always.

    Charles III is King today. Queen setup a plan to not have the royals shatter into meaninglessness and evaporate, including positioning Meg for President, as you see in the article “These Are The Most (Un)Popular Royals”

    “Expert Warns US Descending into ‘Anarchy’ amid Heightened Distrust of DOJ, Law Enforcement”

    Don’t be ridiculous: they’re only beheading women while defunding the police, freeing all violent suspects without bail, and using the police to arrest all their political opponents on Twitter instead. With a record like that, who could have “heightened distrust”?

    Europe says they are preparing the army for unrest this winter. So they are willing to shoot their own citizens, but not willing to shoot Russia. Stunning and brave.

    On shooting Russia, yes, Russia highly wishes to avoid casualties. Now they can shell them with artillery on three sides. What is Ukraine’s hope here?

    Says the world’s most systemically dangerous bank. And yet nothing happens. Here’s something that happened though: Evergrande had their HQ repossessed and sold off in bankruptcy. Since they own multi-hunned-billions, more than anyone else, ever, of course Western creditors will be paid first: NOT. By sudden coincidence, Soros suddenly realized China are evil racists that must be stopped.

    Who will oversee the FBI’s critical confiscation of Trump’s collection of “Time” magazines? Who will cross-dress in Melania’s wardrobe? Constitutional issues at stake!

    Anyway, so we’re going to have a master who can’t read anything? Wtf? Since probably things marked “Classified” no longer are, it’s important to read and review them.

    Note, remember Wasserman-Schultz? She was the one election rigging knocked out Bernie, then said Democrats don’t have the right to fair (primary) elections. And was removed for corruption, which is unheard of. Now tied to Ukraine? So shocked.

    Declassify the Documents from Trump’s Basement (Leonard Goodman)”

    Immediately and universally the second you allow secrecy and classification. For example, they are now arresting any lawyer who will defend J6. So there is no right to counsel now? Nope! We crossed that rubicon years ago when they erased 500 years of Magna Charta and stopped client-attorney privilege. They now do this every day.

    So we’re now worse than the nation was under King John? Yup.

    Pelosi is playing Sir Hiss.

    Back to our – you know: Law – the framers knew all this, which is why every step of this is illegal under the constitution. Because they knew governments always act against the people and for their own personal interests, and therefore must be restrained, small, and have complete oversight. In our case, if not, the contract is broken. Breach of contract between government and people means the people are no longer subject to Federal law, although how to present and remedy this is another whole problem.

    US Household Net Worth Drops $6.1 Trillion in Q2 (CTH)”

    We have had no drop yet. Dow is still near all time highs. And how? Powell appears to be dropping $95B/mo., the only nation on earth shrinking our money supply. And we all live happily ever after, with rents rising 40% (in NYC) month after month? I don’t think that word mean what you think it mean.

    How the system can’t crack, shows no issues, is beyond me. So traders look at Evergrande being liquidated, know the $$ owed to DeutscheBank, know DB is systemically tied into quadrillions of derivatives and lives an nation without industry, and all say “Looks fine to me!!!” “Buy! Mortimer! Buy!!!”

    AFKTT: you forget a jet vaporized itself in PA and no wreckage hit the ground. This was after a 747 flew faster than Pentagon cameras could see it and made a hole 6’ in diameter with no wings into the only room researching corruption. I believe the official story completely and these are not breaches of the laws of physics at all.

    Unf, that is exactly what will happen with vax. Stretch it out, make people who state the obvious a bunch of cranks, delay justice, then “What difference does it make at this point?” The difference is, Cheney, and Bush, are still walking around. Cheney is still making trouble just as Bush made trouble after the Businessman’s Coup.

    Justice delayed is justice denied. Forever. A psychopath’s special.


    On 9/3, Ramzan Kadyrov released a video in which he says he is the longest-serving Russian governor and thinks “my time has come, before they kick me out.”

    Just recently, he was rambling on his telegram channel the Putin may be unaware in the moment how bad things are.

    The language among Russian milbloggers is starting to shift. During previous setbacks, there was the tendency to blame the west, the Ukrainians, or random uncontrollable things, but know they are targeting leadership, especially Putin.

    This week, a group of council deputies in Petersburg called to impeach Putin for “high treason“ amid the war.

    Maneuver warfare requires either overwhelming air support or long range precision fires. Not seeing it with the “regrouping” of Russian forces. Fish in barrel (not)

    It appears that the Russians seem to have left much of their heavy equipment behind and simply run for their lives. Or maybe Spare parts shortage, lack of preventive maintenance, or lack of fuel maybe required them to be left.

    In the moment, The Russians are unlikely to conduct a successful counterattack let alone an offensive. They appear to have neither the forces or equipment.

    If they do a counter attack is likely to come from the north as they still control the supply lines from Belgorod. They do not have many options based what has been retaken by the UAF.

    Kupyansk is at an n in­ter­sec­tion of rail­roads and high­ways and is a lo­gis­ti­cal base that sup­plies ma­teriel for prac­ti­cally all our troops west of the Siver­skyi Donets River.

    Ukrainians have not destroyed the bridges out of the city of Kherson in order to allow Russian forces to evacuate, but have fire control over the bridge with HIMARS, MLRS, and 155mm’s.

    In the moment Russian elite mobile units of the Russian Army are in Kherson on the wrong side of a AFU HIMARS/GMLRS controlled river.

    When Ukraine liberates Kherson, it will be within firing range of Crimea.


    I’m confused and I can’t express this confusion at the Sakers Blog or I’ll get “tsk tsk,” or worse.

    Don’t the Russians have total air superiority? Don’t they have missiles which can hit any target in Ukraine? Then how is the Ukrainian army able to resupply?

    I’m getting a flashback of ISIS rampaging across northern Iraq and the USAF unable to find a single pick up truck to bomb in the entire desert.

    How dare I question the Russians! That’s why I ask here. What’s really going on?


    What’s really going on?

    “The U.S. has been in endless wars since 9/11”

    “..natural gas prices soared 261.3% year-on-year and electricity costs were up 38.5%..”

    the situation is that Europe has run out of cheap energy, for “political reasons,” driving up the cost of living and damaging its industries.

    mark files as “secret,” not to protect national security, but so it could lie with impunity

    … our government abuses its power to classify information as “secret” to protect its own officials from embarrassment or criminal exposure. Since 9/11, the people most aggressively pursued for mishandling classified materials are whistleblowers, not traitors…. Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange ….

    To date, this excess mortality has neither been sufficiently investigated nor studied by national and international health institutions.

    no precedent in world vaccination history.

    The declaration, which originates among concerned medics and professionals in India, makes eight “urgent” demands, including an immediate stop to the vaccinations and investigation of all deaths in previously healthy people.
    Therefore, the following measures must be undertaken on an urgent basis:

    Last power unit switched off at Zaporozhye nuclear plant

    The ‘cold shutdown’ of the sixth reactor at the Russia-controlled facility was performed early on Sunday
    Last power unit switched off at Zaporozhye nuclear plant

    The last working power unit was switched off at the Russia-controlled Zaporozhye nuclear power station early on Sunday, the local authorities and the plant’s Ukrainian operator said.

    The sixth reactor “was stopped at 3:45am. Now it doesn’t generate electricity,” Vladimir Rogov, a member of the Zaporozhye Region administration, told RIA-Novosti.

    The decision to shut down was made due to continued shelling of the plant by Ukraine and damage to the power lines, he said. The constantly changing mode in which the reactors and turbines were forced to operate, because of the attacks, created the risk of an accident, the official explained.

    According to Rogov, the unit had already been operating at minimum capacity for several days.

    Ukrainian state-owned company Energoatom has also confirmed the so-called ‘cold shutdown’ of the last unit, with the Zaporozhye facility coming to a complete halt.

    The largest nuclear power plant in Europe has been controlled by Russian forces since March, but is still operated by Ukrainian staff.

    Ukraine accused of cutting itself off from power supply

    Despite the shutdown of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, energy supply to the nearby town of Energodar is continuing as usual, the local authorities assured.

    The nuclear facility and Energodar have repeatedly sustained missile and artillery strikes in recent weeks, which Russia has blamed on Kiev’s forces. It also reported several failed attempts to retake the power plant by Ukrainian saboteurs.

    Moscow has warned that the continued attacks could cause a nuclear disaster that would eclipse the 1986 Chernobyl incident and affect many countries in Europe.

    Ukraine claims that Russia has turned the plant into a military base and that it is shelling the facility itself in order to pin the blame on Kiev.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), whose inspectors visited the plant in early September, has demanded that all attacks on the plant “be stopped immediately,” but refrained from identifying the party responsible for them.


    “Vladimir Solovyov said…So, what did Solovyov have to say? First, that Ramstein marked a new stage in the war, because of the more threatening nature of the weapons systems announced for delivery, such as missiles with accuracy of 1 to 2 meters when fired from distances of 20 or 30 kilometers thanks to their GPS-guided flight, in contrast to the laser-guided missiles delivered to Ukraine up till now. ”

    But they already have GPS munitions. Nobody knows what’s going on, or if they do, won’t say it, but where’s the $$ in admitting this?

    Denninger’s commentary about 9/11.

    John Day

    9/11 World Of Lies is up, with a picture of some flooring strips laid out by size

    On 9/11/2001 the WTC Twin Towers collapsed in explosions after a couple of jet planes ran into them. The dramatic images are burned into all of our memories.
    At 5:20 PM that day, during the evening news, WTC building 7, “The Lehman Building” as described by the BBC newscaster, collapsed into its own footprint unnoticed and unexplained. The BBC newscaster announced its collapse on British TV, standing by an open window, through which WTC-7 could be seen standing. The timing of the BBC announcement was a little off. The controlled demolition must have been delayed a few minutes.

    The raw video footage from different cameras and angles, of the collapse of WTC7 is here. No drama, just a perfectly controlled drop in freefall time.

    The University of Alaska, Fairbanks performed engineering and structural analysis of the sudden, unconstrained collapse of WTC-7:
    “This is a study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7) — a 47-story building that suffered a total collapse at 5:20 PM on September 11, 2001, following the horrible events of that morning. The objective of the study was threefold: (1) Examine the structural response of WTC 7 to fire loads that may have occurred on September 11, 2001; (2) Rule out scenarios that could not have caused the observed collapse; and (3) Identify types of failures and their locations that may have caused the total collapse to occur as observed…
    The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”

    ​ That is the open-window to the rest of the world of lies, constructed around the events of 9/11/01, pre-constructed, and released in perfect timing to build the narrative to justify the “Global War On Terror”, which was a grab of oil-producing lands, and the critical Central Asian​ hub of afghanistan, from where opium and heroin could be exported to Russia, China, Iran, and the rest of the world.

    The world of lies, bending our perceptions of reality, worked to (adequately) unify Americans behind a military policy of global domination, which extracted wealth through the brutal enforcement of $US loans and commerce.

    Here, from 9/11/2012 is The Unanswered Questions Of 9/11, by James Corbett.
    I am including only these 3 bullet-points from near the end:
    ​ ​-Why is there such a massive discrepancy between the 9/11 commission’s official finding of the time of entry of Dick Cheney into the Presidential Emergency Operation Center on the morning of 9/11 and Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta’s testimony of the timing of that arrival?
    ​ ​-Why did the US government contract with Ptech, an enterprise architecture software firm, to install its backdoor access software on some of the most sensitive databases in the US government? Why did they continue to use Ptech even after it was discovered that its sweetheart investor was a specially designated global terrorist on the Treasury’s own terror list? Why did they declare that there was nothing untoward in the software mere hours after raiding Ptech’s offices in 2002? And what was Ptech doing in the basement of the Pentagon on 9/11? What interoperability tests was it running on the link between FAA and NORAD systems on 9/11, and how did that interfere with the FAA and NORAD’s response?
    ​ ​-And, perhaps most tellingly of all, how did four highjacked aircraft fly so wildly off course for such lengthy periods of time without being confronted by a single fighter interceptor, and why did the Pentagon admittedly and on the record lie to the American public about the timing of its response that day?

    September 11, 2001: More Holes in the Official Story: The 9/11 Cell Phone Calls
    ​ ​A large part of the description, regarding the 19 hijackers relies on cell phone conversations with family and friends.
    ​ ​While a few of these calls (placed at low altitude) could have got through, the wireless technology was not available. On this issue, expert opinion within the wireless telecom industry is unequivocal.
    ​ ​In other words, at least part of the Commission’s script in Chapter 1 on the cell phone conversations, is fabricated.
    ​ ​According to the American Airline / Qualcomm announcement, the technology for cell phone transmission at high altitude will only be available aboard commercial aircraft in 2006. This is an inescapable fact.

    ​I’ll point out that the same shadowy power still controls the USA, and other NATO-aligned nations, and western finance:​

    John Day

    ​ ​Since 9/11, the people most aggressively pursued for mishandling classified materials are whistleblowers, not traitors.
    Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange revealed official crimes such as the murder of unarmed Iraqi civilians and journalists. Daniel Hale revealed that our drone assassination program regularly slaughters innocent civilians, contrary to public statements about surgical strikes. John Kiriakou revealed inconvenient facts about our torture program. Edward Snowden revealed an illegal mass surveillance program. All these truth-tellers were aggressively pursued under the Espionage Act. Assange may die in prison for telling the truth about the crimes of our leaders.

    Declassify the Documents From Trump’s Basement

    ​ You don’t have to like Trump or Bannon. They represent a rival power faction in the US/western-world​. That faction has no official name, but is “nationalist”.
    ​ ​Speaking on the conservative Charlie Kirk Show on Friday, Bannon said: “there were 35 FBI raids yesterday” targeting “senior members of MAGA, Republican supporters of Donald Trump.” He said there was no real need for the searches, as “these people have lawyers,” adding that the “jackbooted Gestapo” intentionally made a “big display of this.”

    ​ I will leave it there, for this Sunday morning. We cannot repair our world until we face the truths of 9/11/2001, which is helped by looking squarely at a few of the lies. These people who did this, and lied to us, to wage global war on critical energy resources, are our hidden rulers. ​ They lie, murder, steal and rob. They have become more desperate lately, seeing a competitor in the BRICS and related economic alliances. They will not allow their power to slip away without slaughtering more humans. The slow-poison is still being administered to the credulous.. The war-preparations accelerate.


    Since 2014 (or before ..) Ukraine has been open to foreign controllers, investors, owners, etc. As a minor example, see Burisma, Hunter Biden, that story.

    Note the Finance Minister of Ukr. 2014 – 16 was an American woman (double national), Jaresko. When the USA complained about corruption in Ukr. (and how to reduce it etc. etc.) this was simply influence they did not like that they tried to eliminate.

    Ukr. has the second largest area of land controlled by foreignors, Russian Fed. is first, of course this is in part because they are big countries, see link. (The complete report about Ukr. is in Russian.)

    See also, way back from 2015:

    Showing that some ownership is hard to track, Companies, Corps. have various ownership mixes, incl. by oligarchs, are lodged in tax-free havens, etc.

    V. complex topic, would take 2 dedicated ppl and some months to even construct a vaguely coherent picture of land ownership in Ukr., so who am I.

    However the fight between Russia and US-NATO to dominate, instrumentalise Ukraine, that is some of the within it, is clearly operating on two different registers.

    From the US, manipulation, coercion, bribery, threats, installing puppets, infiltration of Cos., using ‘color revolution’ techniques, activating their control thru e.g. the UN, the IMF, World Bank..; controlling other countries (Germany..)

    Russia’s riposte, as ‘cancelled’ or ‘excluded’ from the space of dialogue, finance, negotiations (e.g. how to implement the Minsk accords..) finally turned to military means, the one rubric where they can be sure of superiority (in that geographical area) and some ‘wins.’ So Russia is fighting a war to control territory, land (see WW2) while its adversaries laugh and send the last Ukr. men to their death, confident of take-over via other means.


    I have always suspected that the “inside job” part was the pentagon operation- the way “whipped his neck around” Cheney and “I’ll help clean up this mess” Rumsfeld acted made me think they felt someone had stolen their thunder. NYC, on the other hand, seemed to actually cause some confusion (Bush’s bewilderment). Silverstein and “pals” pulled that one off.
    Two operations, NYC piggy-backed onto DC. One operation was a homegrown government inside job. One operation was orchestrated from abroad with the help of private American citizens. If anyone knows of any researchers who follow that train of thought, could you mention them here?

    Regarding the “Ukraine Offensive” southeast of Kharkov, and the humiliating loss of previously Russian held territory, and the elation of Ukraine and the dejection of Russophiles . . . . .

    Russia is doing a masterful job of trying to NOT look like the cat who just ate the canary.

    But folks, it HAS eaten the canary. All that remains to do now is swallow.

    Russia sucked them in with the temptation of a desperately needed “easy win” at a financially and politically “crucial time”. Ukraine took the bait, Russia fell back with minimum losses of men or equipment, and now Ukraine’s “victorious forces” are completely surrounded by a thousand kilometers of Russian dominated Front (“line of contact”) , and have barely a 100 km narrow channel of escape at the end of a 300km “gauntlet” of Russian medium range precision weapons and artillery.

    The UAF is waiting in a slaughterhouse for the next work shift to show up.


    From a simple “Step Back” view of the Russian/Ukrainian activity, it appears to me quite obvious that the Russians are playing high level Chess while the Ukraine and it’s owners are playing tic-tac-toe; and of that, not very well. In Chess, there is a strategy known as the “Gambit”. If the opponent takes your proffered piece, they generally lose. Any strategist worth his salt sees this as an obvious gambit. I am incomparably saddened that more thousands of conscripted and otherwise innocent men will die.

    “Hungary on ‘Edge of Salvation’ in EU – Czech Minister (RT)” –fixed it.


    Ukrainian Numbers Game:

    Since the west wants to fight a forever war against Russia, the Russians are going to have to start cancelling more than 500 Ukrainians a day. A 1% Ukrainian birth rate can replace 500 cancelled male Ukrainians per day, forever. Th Ukraine’s birth rate is above 1% but below 2%.

    Only if more than 1,000 Ukrainians are cancelled each day, will the Ukrainians start having problems replacing their losses.

    It is tough to fight a war when your opponent doesn’t care how many Ukrainians he kills fighting you.


    My two cents:
    looks like hoarding almost 6 months of resupply, retrained troops and all the assistance the west can give right up to inserting actual fighters.
    Now we have snipper practice, and target practice. “A kill zone”.
    (Slow and “boring” wherever possible, draw Axis forces to where they can be engaged with standoff systems. Avoiding escalation of pace, target, technology or location, wherever possible.)


    The Telegram channels are throbbing with…..

    In addition to Kharkiv, the Kremenchug thermal power plant is blazing.

    A blackout on the scale of Ukraine due to falling out of the ZNPP system and hitting two main thermal power plants of Left-Bank Ukraine at once. Ukrop frantically trying to equalize the load and generation and turned off the Kharkiv and Poltava regions, but this is not enough. failures in the networks of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Odessa regions.

    Operation “Stonage” finally begun , they could have done it 6 months ago ….

    Now do the fucking bridges ,ass****

    You know, what is very alarming is the thousands and thousands of dead and wounded Ukrainian soldiers from the offensive. Thousands of missing and of course prisoners.

    The French press notices this in their reports, indicating that the hospitals are overcrowded (this is Kramatorsk).

    Of course, now everyone is busy shouting victory, not noticing the price. Also not including the brain that the game is not over yet, and Zelensky has already sent all the reserves to the meat grinder.

    It is reported that immediately two Nuclear Power Plants on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces began to disconnect their power units from the power grid – Khmelnytsky and South Ukrainian. Just after Zaporizhzhya.

    In Poltava and the region, after a series of missile attacks on infrastructure facilities, the movement of electric trains stopped.

    Sorry to disappoint chooch and others who think the US/UK are capable of winning the proxy war by making Russia run out of bullets and run out of rockets; it’s not going to happen. Ukraine will definitely run out of people prepared to commit suicide to satisfy the ambitions of the comedian long before Russia runs out of military hardware -which Russia manufactures faster than NATOstan can destroy it.

    Here is what the Russian’s are prepared to show the world (and you can be sure they have much more stuff and far better stuff they keep under wraps).

    If you follow Andrei Martyanov, you will know that Russian submarines totally outclass anything the Americans or British have (and constructed them for about 10% of the US cost).

    Just in case others do not know, the problem with the Twin Towers (and the other buildings demolished on and after 9/11) was asbestos.

    They had been constructed at a time when asbestos was considered superb as a fire retardant and insulator for steel girders.

    But then it was found to have serious heath ‘issues’.

    Hardy’s [of Australia] spent several decades evading responsibility for the illnesses and deaths caused to its employees through the handling of asbestos, on the basis that it they could evade responsibility long enough, the ‘problem’ would solve itself.

    Back to 9/11.

    It would have been horrifically expensive to remove the asbestos: all the actual costs, plus the loss of rental income etc.

    A far better plan was to demolish the buildings under subterfuge via the most unlikely event ever: passenger aircraft being ‘hijacked’ and flown into the buildings, followed by collapse!

    Months of preparation were required, including installation of military grade thermite to cut through the main support columns: after all, the buildings had been designed and constructed to withstand multiple impacts of airliners.

    To add insult to injury, the sociopaths/psychopaths took out ‘double indemnity insurance’ on the buildings six months or so before the event, and two weeks before the event orchestrated massive ‘shorts’ on airline shares, on the basis that airline shares would fall in value following a grounding of passenger flights.

    The gold that was stored in the basement of one of the towers was removed several days before the event.

    As John Day pointed out, a drone was used to generate a false flag incident at the Pentagon, where a ‘remnant of honesty’ was in the process of investigating the missing billions that Rumsfeld and his gang had pilfered. A few hours after that incident, the lawn was cleared of all evidence by CIA agents.

    All surveillance camera footage from hotels and car parks in the vicinity mysteriously ‘disappeared’ the following day. Must’ve been gremlins that stole it. Damn those gremlins.

    As we all know, under the ‘rules-based system’, the rules of physics and chemistry can be ‘circumvented’ any time it is convenient. Thus, titanium alloy aircraft engines, with a melting point in excess of 3,000 degrees, can evaporate upon low-speed impact with grass.

    “So it goes”, as Kurt Vonnegut used to say.



    The latest Ukronazi Kharkov ‘triumph’ looks like the Russians will be shooting fish in a barrel.

    Don’t have to dig them out of fortified positions, just lure them into the open.



    Depowering Electricity
    1. nearly 40 substations, electric trains
    2. ZNPP now having to use emergency generators to power the cooling system for the shutdown due to power transmission infrastructure being destroyed.
    3. new delivery of weapons will be harder now.
    4. Refrigerators stopped working, storing and preparing food became a problem.
    5. All electric pumps now having to use emergency generators (water, sewage systems, gas stations, oil and gas refineries)
    6. Wifi, TV, communication systems military system, radars must find recharging station
    7. ▪️Immediately, two Ukrainian nuclear power plants – Khmelnytsky and Yuzhnoukrainskaya – began shutting down their power plants as they could not feed the generated electricity into the grid.
    8. Subway stopped in Kharkiv.
    9. cannot mine any coal with little or no energy or operate any mfg
    10. grain elevators cannot work

    Who hit first. why Ukraine’s electricity system has been destroyed.
    ▫️In the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Ukrainian artillery repeatedly struck 22 important power supply facilities in order to de-energize populated areas, kindergartens, life support facilities for the population, and industrial enterprises.

    ▫️On September 1, three mines of the Donetsk Coal Energy Company, where dozens of miners were trapped underground, were de-energized as a result of the strike.

    ▫️Yesterday, September 10, 19 transformer substations in the Petrovsky district of Donetsk were de-energized due to shelling by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. More than 1,600 civilian objects were remained without electricity as a result of the shelling.

    A broom is drearily sweeping
    Up the broken pieces of yesterday’s life
    Somewhere a queen is weeping
    Somewhere a king has no wife

    And the wind—it cries, “Mary!”

    The traffic lights—they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
    And shine their emptiness down on my bed
    The tiny island sags downstream
    “Cause the life that lived is—is dead

    And the wind screams, “Mary!”

    Will the wind ever remember
    The names it has blown in the past?
    And with this crutch, its old age and its wisdom
    It whispers, “No. This will be the last.”

    And the wind cries, “Mary!”

    Hardies, not Hardy’s

    Asbestos is an excellent electrical insulator and is highly fire-resistant, so for much of the 20th century it was very commonly used across the world as a building material, until its adverse effects on human health were more widely acknowledged in the 1970s.[4][5] Many modern buildings constructed before the 1980s are thought to contain asbestos.[6]

    The use of asbestos for construction and fireproofing has been made illegal in many countries.[2] Despite this, at least 100,000 people are thought to die each year from diseases related to asbestos exposure. In part, this is because many older buildings still contain asbestos; in addition, the consequences of exposure can take decades to arise.[6][7] The most common diseases associated with chronic asbestos exposure are asbestosis (scarring of the lungs due to asbestos inhalation) and mesothelioma (a type of cancer).[8
