Can we now finally put an end to the nonsense? Yeah, I didn’t think so. One of the world’s prime medical journals, the New England Journal of Medicine, says “vaccines” kill your immune system, and numerous countries will still go with mandates. As all of their experts read the New England Journal of Medicine. This is not just a little bit crazy, it’s outright criminal. Stay away from the stuff.

Covid Vaccine Destroys Natural Immunity – NEJM Study (DS)

A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) shows not only that the effectiveness of the Pfizer Covid vaccine becomes negative (meaning the vaccinated are more likely to be infected than the unvaccinated) within five months but that the vaccine destroys any protection a person has from natural immunity. The study is a large observational study that looks at 887,193 children aged 5 to 11 years in North Carolina, of whom 273,157 (30.8%) received at least one dose of Pfizer vaccine between November 1st 2021 and June 3rd 2022. The study includes 193,346 SARS-CoV-2 infections reported between March 11th 2020 and June 3rd 2022. The researchers used a form of statistical modelling with adjustments for confounding factors (such as underlying conditions) to calculate estimates of vaccine effectiveness over time and against the different Covid variants.


The findings are depicted in the charts below. In chart A, notice that the green and blue lines, representing children vaccinated in November and December respectively, go through zero into negative territory at a sharp gradient within five months of the first injection. It’s unclear why the green line is not continued past April, as the researchers presumably had the data, but from what is shown it looks very much like the vaccine effectiveness will continue declining deep into negative territory. In chart B, we see both the red and blue lines – which represent children who are vaccinated and have been previously infected and not previously infected respectively – again going through zero at a steep gradient within five months of vaccination. The fact that the vaccinated who have natural immunity from previous infection also see negative effectiveness is a surprise as one would not expect those with natural immunity to be more susceptible to infection than those without it.

Charts C and D suggest that it is the vaccine that is causing this worrying erasure of natural immunity. Chart D shows the effectiveness of natural immunity from previous infection among the vaccinated. Notice that the blue line, which is protection against the Delta variant among the vaccinated-and-previously-infected, hits zero at a steep gradient within seven months. Now look at the blue line in chart C, which is protection against Delta in the previously infected and unvaccinated. It, too, is waning, but much more slowly, and after eight months it is still very much in positive territory at over 50%. The same can be said for natural immunity against earlier variants (green line), which wanes slowly and remains positive after 16 months. Why is natural immunity remaining protective for the unvaccinated, whereas in the vaccinated their ‘protection’ goes negative even if they have natural immunity?

94% of Vaxxed Patients With Subsequent Health Issues Have Abnormal Blood (ET)

Physicians in Italy studied the blood of patients who had been injected with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and found foreign matter long after vaccination, a new study shows.The three doctors, all of whom are surgeons—Franco Giovannini, M.D., Riccardo Benzi Cipelli, M.D., and Giampaolo Pisano, M.D.—examined freshly drawn blood of more than a thousand patients using direct observation under microscopes to see what was happening in the blood. Their results were published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research in August 2022. For this study, the Italian doctors used optical microscopy, that is, regular light microscopes, to examine the blood. Blood cells are easily visible under a microscope.

Their shape, type, and how and if they are aggregated—clumped together—can help the skilled physician better understand the patient’s health. In their 60-page peer-reviewed study, the Italian researchers reported case studies from their observations. Although they could not explain what they observed, they noted in the study that what they saw was so strange that they felt the need to alert the medical community. [..] Of the 1006 patients, 426 were men and 580 were women. One hundred and forty-one received only one dose of an mRNA vaccine, 453 got two doses, and 412 received three doses in total. The patients ranged in age from 15 to 85. The average age of the patients was 49. All 1,006 patients were seeking healthcare because they were not feeling well: presenting with a wide variety of health issues.

On average, the patients whose blood was examined had been vaccinated about one month prior. Of the 1,006 patients, after vaccination, only about 5 percent—just 58 people—had blood that looked normal. [..] Each of the patients was being reviewed for symptoms, a wide range of which had arisen since their vaccinations. The images are dramatic. Side-by-side pictures of a patient’s blood before and after vaccination show stark differences. Before vaccination, the red blood cells are separate from each other and are round, while the blood drawn after vaccination shows red blood cells that are deformed, and that cluster in coagulation around visible foreign matter that was not present before. This foreign material seemed to collect itself into structures, sometimes forming crystals and other times forming long tubes or fibers.

Russian Energy Revenues Forecast To Soar (RT)

Russia expects to receive a boost in revenues from energy exports this month, according to its finance ministry. September is expected to bring an extra $6.67 billion into the state coffers, adding to August’s additional earnings of $1.4 billion. “Thus, the total amount of funds to be received as additional oil and gas revenues will reach $8.07 billion,” the ministry said in a statement released last week. According to the statement, the finance ministry is not planning to purchase foreign currency or gold with the extra funds received through energy sales.


In August, Western analysts predicted that Russia’s energy export revenues would surge by 38% year-on-year, totaling $337.5 billion in 2022. According to their outlook, energy export earnings will ease to $255.8 billion next year, but will still be higher than the 2021 figure of $244.2 billion. Growing demand from some of the world’s major economies, including India and China, boosted Russia’s energy exports to the volumes seen prior to the conflict in Ukraine and subsequent Western sanctions. Moscow was forced to redirect supply to Asia and the Middle East, where countries refused to take sides in the conflict between Russia and the West.

German GDP Forecast To Plunge (RT)

The German economy is headed for a sharp decline next year, researchers from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy warned on Thursday. “The German economy is in a downward spiral. The recent price jumps for electricity and gas will reduce the purchasing power of private households and lead to a decline in private consumer spending. In addition, the slowing world economy will dampen not only exports but also investment activity. As a result, the German economy will slide into recession once again, at a time when it was just recovering from the pandemic-related crisis,” a press release stated.


Analysts explained that while in their summer forecast they assumed that “recovery would prevail despite the burdens” and predicted a strong rise in GDP, lingering concerns regarding the energy sphere forced them to lower their expectations significantly. “Now we expect GDP to increase by only 1.4% in the current year. In 2023, it is expected to decline by 0.7%,” they wrote, while previously the institute predicted a 3.3% growth for the country’s economy next year. Researchers also expect inflation to rise to 8% this year and 8.7% in 2023. Germany’s spending on energy imports is expected to rise by €123 billion this year and another €136 billion next year. As a result, the country’s industrial output is likely to drop. Private households’ purchasing power is also forecast to fall by 4.1%, the steepest drop recorded since Germany’s reunification in 1990.

People cannot imagine the implications. But they will have to soon.

Germany Risks Deindustrialization — The Economist (RT)

The biggest challenge the German industrial sector currently faces is posed by rising energy costs, The Economist reported on Sunday, citing the association of German industry BDI. “The substance of our industry is under threat,”BDI President Siegfried Russwurm said as quoted by the media, adding that the situation was looking “toxic” for many businesses. According to the association, the electricity price for next year has already increased fifteen-fold, and the price of gas ten-fold. In July, the country’s industry, which has been forced to reduce production capacities, reportedly consumed 21% less gas than in the same month in 2021.

Smaller companies are struggling more than bigger ones, according to a study by the consulting company FTI Andersch, as cited by the media. Some 25% of firms with fewer than 1,000 employees were forced to cancel or decline orders, or are planning to do so, compared with 11% of those with over 1,000 employees. Almost 10,000 bread manufacturers are reportedly struggling as never before in post-war Germany, as the cost of the electricity and gas needed to heat ovens and run kneading machines have increased enormously. The BDI survey of 600 medium-sized companies showed that nearly one in ten interrupted or reduced output because of high input costs, while more than nine in ten said that the soaring prices of energy and raw materials is a big or an existential challenge for them.

One in five are reportedly considering relocating part or all of their production to another country. Bigger companies that use energy-intensive production capacities, such as chemicals or steel producers, may also relocate abroad, as they have to compete with rivals in other countries, where the cost of energy is lower. If energy prices remain high for a while, up to 3% of Germany’s energy-intensive businesses will relocate abroad, according to Holger Schmieding, the chief economist of private bank Berenberg.

In light of the previous articles, this is funny. A bigger, stronger Germany? Better first worry how much longer Scholz is in the saddle.

The Specter of Germany Is Rising (Diana Johnstone)

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is a colorless SPD politician, but his Aug. 29 speech in Prague was inflammatory in its implications. Scholz called for an expanded, militarized European Union under German leadership. He claimed that the Russian operation in Ukraine raised the question of “where the dividing line will be in the future between this free Europe and a neo-imperial autocracy.” We cannot simply watch, he said, “as free countries are wiped off the map and disappear behind walls or iron curtains.” (Note: the conflict in Ukraine is clearly the unfinished business of the collapse of the Soviet Union, aggravated by malicious outside provocation. As in the Cold War, Moscow’s defensive reactions are interpreted as harbingers of Russian invasion of Europe, and thus a pretext for arms buildups.)

To meet this imaginary threat, Germany will lead an expanded, militarized EU. First, Scholz told his European audience in the Czech capital, “I am committed to the enlargement of the European Union to include the states of the Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and, in the long term, Georgia”. Worrying about Russia moving the dividing line West is a bit odd while planning to incorporate three former Soviet States, one of which (Georgia) is geographically and culturally very remote from Europe but on Russia’s doorstep. In the “Western Balkans”, Albania and four extremely weak statelets left from former Yugoslavia (North Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina and widely unrecognized Kosovo) mainly produce emigrants and are far from EU economic and social standards.

Kosovo and Bosnia are militarily occupied de facto NATO protectorates. Serbia, more solid than the others, shows no signs of renouncing its beneficial relations with Russia and China, and popular enthusiasm for “Europe” among Serbs has faded. Adding these member states will achieve “a stronger, more sovereign, geopolitical European Union,” said Scholz. A “more geopolitical Germany” is more like it. As the EU grows eastward, Germany is “in the center” and will do everything to bring them all together. So, in addition to enlargement, Scholz calls for “a gradual shift to majority decisions in common foreign policy” to replace the unanimity required today.

What this means should be obvious to the French. Historically, the French have defended the consensus rule so as not to be dragged into a foreign policy they don’t want. French leaders have exalted the mythical “Franco-German couple” as guarantor of European harmony, mainly to keep German ambitions under control. But Scholz says he doesn’t want “an EU of exclusive states or directorates,” which implies the final divorce of that “couple.” With an EU of 30 or 36 states, he notes, “fast and pragmatic action is needed.” And he can be sure that German influence on most of these poor, indebted and often corrupt new Member States will produce the needed majority.

For Russia, this is about WWII. And about letting Germany unify.

“The German government “has unilaterally acted to destroy bilateral relations [with Russia] that were unique in scale and depth and had been built over decades..”

Germany Has ‘Crossed Red Line’ – Russia (RT)

Germany has crossed a red line with Russia by sending arms to Ukraine, Moscow’s ambassador in Berlin said on Monday. The decision undermined decades of reconciliation since the end of World War II and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, the diplomat added. “The very fact that the Ukrainian regime is being supplied with German-made lethal weapons, which are used not only against Russian military service members, but also the civilian population of Donbass, crosses the red line,”Ambassador Sergey Nechaev said in an interview with Izvestia newspaper. He added that Berlin should have known better, “considering the moral and historic responsibility that Germany has before our people for the Nazi crimes.” “They have crossed the Rubicon,” Nechaev stated, using an idiom for passing the point of no return.

Berlin discarded its longstanding policy of not sending weapons into zones of armed conflict to join the US and other NATO allies in providing weapons to Ukraine. The German government says it has a moral responsibility to back Kiev so it can defend itself against Russia. Germany also joined an effort by the EU to decouple the economies of member states from Russia’s. German businesses have been relying on cheap Russian natural gas for five decades, since before the Soviet Union collapsed. The German government “has unilaterally acted to destroy bilateral relations [with Russia] that were unique in scale and depth and had been built over decades,” the Russian ambassador noted. “In essence, the post-war reconciliation of our nations and peoples is being eroded,”Nechaev said.

According to the diplomat, economic restrictions imposed on Russia over the Ukraine conflict have resulted in a sharp increase in utility bills, a surge in consumer prices, and a decrease in real incomes in Germany. Nechaev said the “sanctions war” against Moscow is being increasingly seen as “shooting yourself in the foot” in Germany, which has already faced protests over the cost-of-living crisis. The ambassador noted that Russia took no pleasure in seeing the damage, even if Berlin has itself to blame for it. “We believe the ongoing processes to be Germany’s domestic issue, in which we do not get involved,” he said. “And we certainly are not in the habit of delivering pompous lectures, the likes of which the West constantly makes about Russians.”

“The solution, as always, is non-intervention. No sanctions, no “color revolutions,” no meddling. It’s really that simple.”

Europe Commits Suicide-by-Sanctions (Ron Paul)

European sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine earlier this year will likely go down in history as a prime example of how sanctions can result in unintended consequences. While seeking to punish Russia by cutting off gas and oil imports, European Union politicians forgot that Europe is completely dependent on Russian energy supplies and that the only people to suffer if those imports are shut down are the Europeans themselves. The Russians simply pivoted to the south and east and found plenty of new buyers in China, India, and elsewhere. In fact, Russia’s state-run Gazprom energy company has reported that its profits have increased by 100 percent in the first half of this year.

Russia is getting rich while Europeans are facing a freezing winter and economic collapse. All because of the false belief that sanctions are a cost-free way to force other countries to do what you want them to do. What happens when the people see dumb government policies making energy bills skyrocket as the economy grounds to a halt? They become desperate and take to the streets in protest. This weekend thousands of Austrians took to the streets in a “Freedom Rally” to demand an end to sanctions and the opening of Nord Stream II, the gas pipeline on the verge of opening earlier this year. Last week an estimated 100,000 Czechs took to the streets of Prague to protest NATO and EU policy. In France, the “Yellow Vests” are back in the streets protesting the destruction of their economy in the name of “defeating” Russia in Ukraine. In Germany, Serbia, and elsewhere, protests are gearing up.

Even the Washington Post was forced to admit that sanctions on Russia are not having the intended effect. In an article yesterday, the paper worries that sanctions are inflicting “collateral damage in Russia and beyond, potentially even hurting the very countries that impose them. Some even worried that the sanctions intended to deter and weaken Putin could end up emboldening and strengthening him.” This is all predictable. Sanctions kill. Sometimes they kill innocents in the country targeted for destruction and sometimes they kill innocents in the country imposing them. The solution, as always, is non-intervention. No sanctions, no “color revolutions,” no meddling. It’s really that simple.

“Powers outside Europe are trying to condemn the bloc’s members to “military vulnerability, political subjugation, economic and energy incapacity, financial indebtedness and social disintegration..”

Hungarian Official Says EU Is The Losing Side In Ukraine Conflict (RT)

The EU has suffered severe political and economic damage from its handling of the situation in Ukraine, and can already be declared the loser in the conflict, the speaker of Hungary’s National Assembly claimed on Sunday.Laszlo Kover, who is a member of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party, accused Brussels of failing to prevent the conflict through political means, with the result that it’s “unable to restore peace diplomatically.” “Under external pressure, the EU is acting against its most basic economic interests and should already be considered a loser, regardless of which of the parties directly involved in fighting will declare itself the winner,” he said.

Powers outside Europe are trying to condemn the bloc’s members to “military vulnerability, political subjugation, economic and energy incapacity, financial indebtedness and social disintegration,” with Brussels helping them to achieve this goal, the parliament speaker claimed. The EU is grappling with soaring natural gas prices, the prospect of energy shortages in winter and spiking inflation in the wake of sanctions it imposed on Russia over its military operation in Ukraine. Brussels has largely followed the US stance of seeking to weaken Russia through sanctions, while supplying Kiev with weapons and financial aid.

Hungary has remained relatively neutral since the outbreak of fighting in late February. It has refused to send arms to Ukraine and remained critical of the EU sanctions against Moscow, calling them ill-conceived and self-defeating. Budapest, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy, was also able to negotiate an exemption for itself from the bloc-wide ban on Russian oil. Last week, Mikulas Bek the European affairs minister of the Czech Republic, which now presides over the EU Council, has warned that Hungary’s stance on Russia could theoretically end up with it exiting the bloc. The country “has come a long way, reaching the edge of an abyss, and now it has to decide whether to go back from that edge or risk a jump,” Bek said.

A new kind of self-flaggelation: we’ll buy your gas, but only if you make it twice as expensive.

New Gazprom Plant Is Shipping Its First LNG Cargo To Greece (BI)

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the European Union pledged to reduce the bloc’s reliance on natural gas from Russia. But it appears new deals are still pushing through. The first cargo from Russia’s Portovaya liquefied natural gas, or LNG, plant, which is near the shut Nord Stream 1 pipeline, will be going to EU nation Greece, Bloomberg reported on Saturday, citing a person with direct knowledge of the situation. The identity of the buyer and size of the cargo was not reported, but Greece has only one LNG facility that supplies the domestic market, as well as Bulgaria — also an EU country — and North Macedonia.

This is at odds with EU plans, rolled out in March, that aim to cut the bloc’s dependency on Russian gas by two-thirds by the end of 2022 and end its reliance on Russian supplies of the fuel “well before 2030.” Europe depends on Russia for 40% of its natural-gas needs, such as cooking in homes and firing up power stations. It’s fretting over a winter energy crisis, as Russia has reduced natural-gas flows to the continent, citing sanctions-related challenges. Challenges abound, particularly in the short-term after Russia halted natural-gas supply via the key Nord Stream 1 pipeline. Europe is busy setting up LNG terminals to counter the energy crisis, as these facilities will turn the super-cooled fuel to gas.

Sweden, another EU nation, is also still importing Russian LNG. Last week, activists from Greenpeace Nordic protested Russian imports by blocking an LNG tanker from unloading Russian fuel in Sweden. s”The fact that Russian fossil gas is still allowed to flow into Sweden, more than six months after Putin began his invasion of Ukraine, is unacceptable,” Karolina Carlsson, a campaign leader at Greenpeace Nordic, said in a statement on September 8.

Spain Doubles Russian Gas Imports (RT)

The volume of Russian gas bought by Spain in August soared by 102.2% compared to the same period last year, according to data published on Monday by the Spanish energy company Enagas. The report highlighted that Madrid purchased 4,505 gigawatt hours (GWh) of gas from Moscow compared to 2,228 GWh in August 2021. Meanwhile, imports from Algeria, traditionally a major gas supplier to the country, dropped by 34.8%. Data also showed that imports from the United States accounted for 26.5% of supplies. Russia ranked fifth among the country’s main providers (11.8%), after the US, Algeria, Nigeria and France.


In total, in the first eight months of 2022, Spain purchased 32,770 GWh of gas from Russia, which is 22.88% more than in the same period of the previous year. The EU countries have been boosting gas purchases lately to stockpile for the winter season. On Friday, member states failed to reach a consensus on setting a price cap on Russian gas which was aimed at calming skyrocketing energy prices across the region.

Ukrainian Mayor Announces Hunt For ‘Collaborators’ (RT)

The city of Izyum, which fell under the control of Ukrainian forces last week, is about to see “cleanup” operations by the Ukrainian military, its mayor, Valery Marchenko, told the BBC on Monday. During these efforts, Ukrainian soldiers will search for Russian soldiers who could have potentially remained in the city, as well as those they call “collaborators,” Marchenko added. “The military are doing the cleanup [by] going around the city and looking for enemy soldiers that [could have been] hiding in private houses,”the mayor said, adding that the Ukrainian soldiers then forcefully drove them out. After they finish with the “cleanup,” the mayor added, the Kiev forces will “look for collaborators.”


According to him, these efforts might take up to ten days. After that, the civilians who fled the city would be allowed to return, according to Marchenko. Last week, Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigations said it would conduct similar operations in Balakleya, another town in Kharkov Region that has recently been retaken by Kiev’s forces. According to Marchenko, at least 1,000 Izyum residents died “as a result of military action” in the city and “even more” perished due to the lack of medical assistance. He did not blame any specific deaths on any side of the conflict but slammed Russia for “bombing” and “destroying” the city.

“Plausible deniability works both ways; because NATO is not officially in Ukraine – only “volunteers” – targeting their personnel is not an overtly aggressive act.”

Special Military Operation, Season 2 (Big Serge)

First, I would like to comment on why I am against mobilization. One of the most important dimensions of this war is the economic front. Europe is being driven to the brink by the energy crisis. The Wall Street Journal keyed in on what I believe to be the most apt descriptor of the crisis, warning of a “new era of deindustrialization in Europe.” A full mobilization would be very costly for Russia’s economy, risking the edge that it currently holds in the economic confrontation with Europe. This, I believe, is the main reason that the Russian government was quick to quash rumors of mobilization today. There are other steps on the escalation ladder before going to total war footing.

There are already rumors that Russia is planning to change the formal designation of the war, from “Special Military Operation”. While that could mean a formal declaration of war, I think that is unlikely. Rather, Russia will likely give the Ukraine operation the same designation as its operations in Syria, loosening the rules of engagement and beginning to target Ukrainian assets in earnest. We saw a foretaste of this last night, when Russia wiped out over half of Ukraine’s power generation with a few missiles. There are many more targets that they can go after – more nodes in the electrical grid, water pumping and filtration facilities, and higher level command posts. There is at least some probability that Russia begins targeting the command facilities with NATO personnel in them.

Plausible deniability works both ways; because NATO is not officially in Ukraine – only “volunteers” – targeting their personnel is not an overtly aggressive act. Russia also has many ways to boost its force deployment in Ukraine that fall short of full mobilization. They have a pool of demobilized contract soldiers that they can call up, as well as a pool of reservists that they can raise with a partial mobilization. The Russian line is hardening. Just in the past 24 hours, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there were “no prospect for negotiations” with Ukraine, and Putin said “Unfriendly forces are targeting us, and we must take initiative in order to succeed in confronting them.”

Medvedev went even further just now: “”A certain Zelenskyy said that he will not hold a dialogue with those who issue ultimatums. The current ‘ultimatums’ are a warm-up for kids, a preview of demands to be made in the future. He knows them: the total surrender of the Kiev regime on Russia’s terms” If you believe the Russian government is utterly incompetent and duplicitous, feel free to view statements like this as bluster. But given the warning shot at Ukrainian power generation yesterday, my sense is that Russia is preparing to escalate to a higher level of intensity, which Ukraine cannot match with its indigenous resources. The only other player on the escalation ladder is the United States. Dark times are ahead for Ukraine – and perhaps for Americans on the other front of this war.

Armenia Requests Russian Military Assistance In Fight Against Azerbaijan (ZH)

The overnight outbreak of fighting in multiple spots along the Armenian-Azerbaijan border is serious enough for Yerevan to have asked for its powerful ally Russia’s help. This has been revealed hours after Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held a late night telephone conversation with President Vladimir Putin. The Armenian government has since confirmed it has requested Russian military assistance to repel Azerbaijan aggression and shelling, according to a statement (machine translation): “During the meeting, further steps were discussed to counter the aggressive actions of Azerbaijan against the sovereign territory of Armenia that began at midnight. In connection with the aggression against the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia, it was decided to officially appeal to the Russian Federation in order to implement the provisions of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, as well as to the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the UN Security Council.

Armenia is basing the request on the Collective Security Treaty Organization pact it has with Russia, and under which Russia previously sent peacekeeping forces to Nagorno-Karabakh after the Fall 2020 conflict. Independent geopolitical analyst and Russia watcher Clint Ehrlich concludes of the hugely significant request at a time the Ukraine war is raging: “If Russia accepts, we could see a second NATO-Russia proxy war explode.” Of the earlier in the night Putin phone call, the Kremlin said via TASS: “The Prime Minister gave details about the provocative, aggressive actions of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in the direction of the sovereign territory of Armenia, which began at midnight and were accompanied by shelling from artillery and large-caliber firearms. The Prime Minister considered the actions of the Azerbaijani side unacceptable and stressed the importance of an adequate response from the international community.”

However, it should be noted that during the last major flare-up in fighting between the two longtime rival nations which share a restive border, Moscow was careful to not get too deeply drawn in – only agreeing to help broker a ceasefire and send several hundred Russian peacekeeping forces to oversee the terms of the agreement. If Moscow does get pulled in, it might be seen in the West as an opportunity to “weaken” Russian forces on a separate front.

New Orleans Mayor Justifies Luxury Flights Citing Skin Color And Gender (RT)

The Democratic Mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, has insisted that spending tens of thousands of dollars on first-class plane seats was necessary, suggesting that flying economy would be unsafe for a black woman. Cantrell is refusing to refund the $30,000 of taxpayers’ money she spent on the luxury seats to France and Switzerland. Speaking at a press conference last week, Cantrell insisted that her “travel accommodations are a matter of safety, not luxury.” That’s despite her entourage and security staff reportedly traveling coach during the trips.

“As the mother of a young child whom I live for, I am going to protect myself by any reasonable means in order to ensure I am there to see her grow into the strong woman I am raising her to be,” Cantrell explained, adding that “anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world black women walk in.” The mayor took a luxury American Airlines flight to Switzerland back in July and a first-class trip to France earlier this year, insisting that she was “doing business on behalf of the city.” “All expenses incurred doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of New Orleans,” LaToya Cantrell said, speaking outside the Nix Library on Thursday. However, New Orleans’ travel policy for city officials makes it clear that all employees “are required to purchase the lowest airfare available” and that those who choose to upgrade their seats are responsible for the difference in cost.

Furthermore, if the city ends up overpaying for any travel expenses, the employees are required to reimburse the city within 20 business days. Speaking to Fox 8, the mayor’s staff said they are checking to see if the city policy applies to Cantrell, as she is an elected official and not specifically hired by the city itself. As reported by 4WWL, Cantrell also spent over $2,800 dollars back in March on a first-class trip to Miami for a US Conference of Mayors, while her entourage spent between $300 and $677. In January she also reportedly spent $2,300 on a luxury flight to a Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington while her staff paid just $250.

It’s getting out of hand.

The Continued DOJ Targeting of Joe Biden Political Opposition (CTH)

During his opening monologue today, Fox News host Tucker Carlson outlined the history of the Biden administration targeting the democrat political opposition by using the Dept of Justice and FBI. During one part of the lengthy segment, Carlson outlined the recent subpoenas to people within the MAGA movement.

The technique most often deployed, is for the DOJ/FBI to claim an anonymous source has provided information against the subpoena target, and therefore the target must prove their innocence against the “sources” claims. Having received one of these DC subpoenas directly, my experience with the construct leads me to believe the DOJ is just making up the “anonymous sources.” However, if you refuse to participate in the bizarre demand to prove your innocence, the lack of cooperation becomes the Lawfare angle used to entrap the target. The process is something like this: It is unlawful to rob banks. We were told you rob banks. Prove you do not rob banks or be subject to arrest for being unresponsive.


It is not quite impossible to construct an accusatory claim that is grounded in abject absurdity, but it is highly unlikely these absurd claims -factual lies without any basis whatsoever- would organically lead to the origin of DOJ investigations. Yet, this is what Merrick Garland’s DOJ would have us believe. Either the DOJ is making this stuff up, or affiliates in ideological alignment are making stuff up in order to feed the DOJ. Regardless, the political weaponization of the DOJ and FBI as described by Mr. Carlson is absolutely accurate.

Civil liberties campaigners and others have expressed alarm about the response of police to anti-monarchy protesters after a number of incidents, the latest of which included the arrest of a man in Edinburgh for apparently heckling Prince Andrew. The advocacy group Liberty said that new powers recently given to the police to curtail protest, and how they were being enforced by officers, were a cause for deep concern. The Labour MP Zarah Sultana said in response to incidents in Edinburgh, London and Oxford: “No one should be arrested for just expressing republican views. Extraordinary – and shocking – that this needs saying.”

Police Scotland said a 22-year-old man and a 52-year-old man had been arrested in connection with a breach of the peace on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh shortly before 3pm on Monday. It came after police were seen pulling a man out of a crowd of people, some of whom appeared to push him, after he was seen shouting at the procession accompanying the Queen’s coffin as King Charles, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex marched behind the hearse. Earlier, a woman was charged after being arrested by police in Edinburgh on Sunday as she staged a protest during the accession proclamation for the King. Police said the woman, 22, had been arrested on Sunday outside St Giles’ Cathedral in connection with a breach of the peace and would appear at Edinburgh sheriff court at a later date.

The woman, called Mariángela and who had been seen holding a sign that said “Fuck imperialism, abolish monarchy”, was arrested moments before the reading of the proclamation. The incident took place outside the cathedral, where the Queen’s coffin lay on Monday. On Monday night Global Majority Vs Campaign, the group Mariángela represents, released a statement following the arrest, saying it “condemned the centuries of colonial injustice, genocide, and unlawful extraction that have been – and continue to be – carried out in the name of the British Crown”. It added: “Calling for the abolition of the monarchy is as old as the monarchy itself and is a cornerstone of freedom of speech in the UK.”

    I have occasionally wondered how many of the elite have actually been vaccinated, either having saline injections or getting a fake vaccination record. It is so dangerous that I am sure will be ‘in the know’ and will protect themselves and their families.

    “Economists Warn Energy Bill Price Caps Could Lead to Blackouts in UK”

    If not, it would be the first time in the history of the world. But if so, only the rich sit pretty while the poor die like dogs. Your move:

    Obviously, the Docktor does not believe in Kobayashi Maru any more than James Tiberius does. Things can always get better.

    Fertilizer. Okay, IF we survive at all, should the U.S. stop eating, ration, and send all our food to Europe who voluntarily and on purpose shut off their own food in a TikTok-based, attention-grabbing, feel-sorry-for-me suicide attempt?

    Also a note on why you focus on the individual and take care of your self first. If we have our own oxygen mask, our own house is in order, THEN we have no problem or stress in providing all our extra food to Europe at some reasonable cost. If not, well, we’re sacrificing our own lives and won’t want to. Why should both of us drown instead of just one?

    “Half the output, twice the income. Now there’s a business model.

    Russian Energy Revenues Forecast To Soar (RT) “

    This is nice, but like bank robbers, it’s not just GETTING the money, they need to SPEND the money, freely. Now if Russia can buy chip manufacturing machines, this would be a clear win – don’t care about Gucci and Nike shoes that dissolve in 6 months.

    German GDP Forecast To Plunge (RT)”

    Each day like this: WILL plunge? We WILL have a recession…in the sometime future? No, that’s just more (lying) framing. We HAD that recession, in the PAST. It started 30+ days ago. Certainty, past tense, unavoidable, irreversible. Saying otherwise is happy-happy talk while the boat is sinking. Bail you f—-rs!

    …Problem is, they can’t. There’s essentially nothing they can do but brace for impact. They’re cleverly bracing for impact with denial. “I will heal you with the power of my lies!”

    They got in the car with the Joker, they told themselves he wasn’t that bad. And he drove the car into a wall at 90mph to see what it feels like. Because that’s what psychos do; that’s who they ARE. Fish swim, birds fly, wolves bite. But in the happy world where all the monsters are just misunderstood, that’s what you do.

    “If energy prices remain high for a while, up to 3% of Germany’s energy-intensive businesses will relocate”

    You are kidding, right? I guess 3% “relocate” but 93% of them “Won’t exist.”

    “Scholz called for an expanded, militarized European Union under German leadership.”

    This is the core of the Davos/EU plan. With the social repression and anti-democracy they’ve planned, structured, promised, and enforced all that time. An untouchable, unaccountable Soviet bureaucracy running everything. For a few unnamed people at the top.

    Just last year Macron was doing a sales pitch for a pan-European Army to shoot French girls with. Sick.

    “I am committed to the enlargement of the European Union to include the states of the Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova and, in the long term, Georgia”. — Scholz

    Throwing down the gauntlet for full and total war with Russia. Third time in 100 years the Anglos have managed to destroy Germany by getting them to fight Russia. Do these guys not have maps? Are they all named “Truss”? Do they have any idea how far away Georgia is? 1,500 miles. As far as Bangor to Miami.

    I assume they intend to run a military supply chain along that route to support Berlin’s 20 tanks and 10 working aircraft. Why not? Scholz just said he would invade China.

    “French leaders have exalted the mythical “Franco-German couple”

    France already doesn’t exist and is a fiefdom to Germany. As happens from time to time. Question is: can they keep it? History says no, they are too different. That means France will break away to Germany’s loss and cost.

    “Germany Has ‘Crossed Red Line’ – Russia (RT)”

    With this rhetoric, they have. However, Russia knows Germany is not the actual leaders and are running nothing. Also their people are pawns so far down, and so uninterested, why blow them up? They’re already dying of cold and no bread, why hurry?

    They already said they would go after the real command centers. Then e.g. gave GPS numbers for Nato HQ.

    “A new kind of self-flaggelation: we’ll buy your gas, but only if you make it twice as expensive.”

    When we’re reducing the population 90%, no price is too high! Clearly: look at what everybody is willing to pay on bombs.

    “Spain Doubles Russian Gas Imports (RT) “

    To be fair, they’re just following Biden’s lead.

    “ Ukrainian Mayor Announces Hunt for ‘Collaborators’ (RT)”

    Still murdering their own people by the thousands. Not only Donbass, they purged people in Kiev, and now Izyum.

    “The Democratic Mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, has insisted that spending tens of thousands of dollars on first-class plane seats was necessary, suggesting that flying economy would be unsafe for a black woman”

    A window into what they tell themselves in their heads. That somehow coincidentally involve “All for me, none for thee.” “How dare you!” question me? And if it’s illegal, who cares? No one gets arrested. Consequences are for other people.

    “The Continued DOJ Targeting of Joe Biden Political Opposition (CTH)”

    As above, “Our patience has run thin…” –Biden Do what you’re told!

    …Apparently they’ve never met Americans before.

    “UK Police Arrests Anti-Monarchy Protesters (G.)”

    This was in web bot predictions. It didn’t go well.

    A fine is a tax” But all combinations involve people who don’t work: the government, getting your money. Any excuse will do. You notice people never scam to get LESS stuff and do MORE work. So if you want to know who is honest, look for generous people who do work.

    “somebody invented the nuclear weapon, oh shit..how do we have wars now?”

    Yes, the point exactly. And we are having one right now. “Very carefully.”

    I hate the queen even more in her death. The TV has rolled out all the sychophants, the talking mouths – who the hell are they and where do they store these people – and all the war criminals and failed public figures, like Blair, May and others who I really do not recogise but hate because they are on the TV, something that I also hate but have to watch when visiting the outlaws. It is as if my life is being briefly infested with cockroaches.

    I need a nice warm shower …. oops, maybe I should not say that in front of people living in the west.

    How quickly are things collapsing in your neck of the woods?

    In this sector of the Empire of Lies and Chaos…

    ‘BIGGEST DROP EVER
    The REINZ says August house prices were ‘weaker than expected’. In fact they reported the biggest drop in house prices over the last six months since REINZ records began.

    The Real Estate Institute of NZ recorded 4891 residential sales throughout the country in August, down 18.3% compared to August last year and down 20.2% compared to pre-pandemic levels in August 2019. There were, however, 91 more sales in August than in July, suggesting the sales slump may have bottomed out.

    However prices continued to decline with the national median price hitting $800,000 in August, down $10,000 (-1.2%) compared to July, and down $50,000 (-5.9%) compared to August last year.

    The REINZ House Price Index declined by a further 1.3% in August and is now down 5.8% compared to a year ago.

    FALLING AT ALMOST $2 BLN PER DAY
    In Australia, there are 10.8 mln dwellings. In total they were worth AU$10.146 tln as at March 2022. But by June they had fallen in value to AU$9.983 tln. That is a loss of value of -AU$162 bln – or -AU$1.8 bln per day.’

    With all the talk about jab injuries and deaths, and the ineffectiveness of masks, the NZ government is quietly backtracking and doing subtle U-turns, presumably in the hope that no one will notice. As of today, no masks are required for most people in most situations. Nevertheless, the avid mask-wearers -comprising of about 20% of the populace- continue to wear them.

    I was asked by a young fellow today: “When will the mainstream media acknowledge the economy is collapsing?”

    “Never.”

    The 99% crap content of MSM is currently focused on the whereabouts of the royals, and what their plans are (70%), together with a selection of corporate sport stories, and the mandatory reporting of road accidents, hearsay, accusations, sponsored advertisements, and reports of dogs riding surfboards, etc.

    ENERGY …. WHY …. OUR LEADERS

    Half the output, twice the income. Now there’s a business model.

    Half the output, 4x the cost. Not a business model.

    People cannot imagine the implications. But they will have to soon.
    The solution, as always, is non-intervention. No sanctions, no “color revolutions,” no meddling. It’s really that simple.

    anticlimatic, I often wonder the same thing. But I really do believe that Newsom had a reaction to the vaccine and disappeared for a couple weeks, remember that? The excuses were ridiculous as well, he just disappeared and didn’t attend events he was supposed to be at. It had to be medically related.

    I know so many really smart people that not only gladly rolled up their sleeves, but are giddy about getting them, even now. It’s so weird. I really don’t know what to think.

    Is anyone else freaking out about what will happen to “money” in the banks? I am really struggling with what is the best course of action, whether it’s better to have a mortgage and a balance in the bank, or no mortgage and little in the bank. It really feels like those 1s and 0s digitally recorded (yest worked for over so many years) could go poof at any moment. After living through the escalation of pure madness over the past 20+ years, anything seems possible.

    I note that most of the studies such as the abnormal blood one are self-financed by the doctors themselves The recent study by doctors showing the blood clots were not actually composed of blood cells was also self-financed.

    These novel blood clots have been known about for a while yet the above very basic studies would imply that there has not been a single investigation by health authorities into their cause and nature.

    When factories close they rarely reopen, because the myriad of factors which built the factory in the first place are no longer there or available. They were forced to go elsewhere to survive after the factory closed. Oh, and that competitor who used to fight tooth and nail to hang onto 50% of the market? Yeah, well the competitor did NOT close their factory. They continued to make and sell goods into a market was uncontested now that their rival is gone. Now they have 90% market share and a firm grip on supplies of source materials, talent and transportation. So anyone trying to make a comeback by “re-opening” a competing factory it will have to do so straight into the teeth of the gale that is 5 times stronger than it was back in the day.

    Tough row to hoe.

    @ anticlimactic
    I find myself wondering the same – how many elites fake vaccinated, how many truly vaccinated against Covid? However, I suspect that most were actually vaccinated with the toxin. That is the irony of totalitarianism. It is slavish adherence to a warped ideology, and produces behavior that makes no sense to those outside of the ideology. With conventional ideologies, the nefarious, greedy person knows that the Covid vaccines are “bad to the bone” and pushes then on the populace anyhow, but protects himself and those he cares for. In totalitarian ideology, the same individual is a “true believer” in the ideology and also recognizes that personal wealth will come from the vax campaign. He vaxes himself and his loved ones and has a very difficult time accepting that this was harmful, because it causes strong cognitive dissonance.
    I suspect that only a few at the tippy top consciously recognized the stupidity of getting the Covid vax. Well, those and a few other medical/research types directly involved in its creation and testing.

    Desmet likens these folks to being in a trance. Some folks criticize him, as if to say that someone who is hypnotized is absolved of culpability. From what I’ve heard and read from Desmet, I don’t see him spending a lot of time determining culpability. The Covidiots do behave like someone hypnotized. AND they are still personally responsible for their behavior. The minister of my former church is going to destroy the congregation with her views. I am certain that I am not the only free-thinker who has left. I think about all of the nasty feelings being generated by one elderly man who keeps absent-mindedly removing his mask in choir practice. And the vax and booster requirements (for employees, for choir members, etc.,) are destroying the health of all there who follow them. Add to that the coming economic woes — eventually, there may not be enough wealthy parishioners, and their endowment may not contain enough value to pay the mortgage on the property and pay the minister’s salary.

    The mass formation around Covid and the vaccines is pernicious and cannot last too many years — because it is deadly and debilitating, and does not help people to effectively live their lives. There are mass formations that bring benefit to people’s lives, or that are a mixed bag — these often last generations. The Mormon church is one such. It was originally a mass formation, a cult, focused around one man — a charlatan — who enjoyed the social power he wielded inside of his church. (i.e. intimate access to women.). It contained both pro-social and some sorry, detrimental elements. Before it was 70 years old, many of the worst detrimental elements had been purged; it is left with a mixed bag that, for some folks, serves them pretty well and so they are “true believers,” adhering to it and continuing it.

    Head of the Russia’s Communist Party – “good old face of a first class apparatchik”.
    Now, you may be surprised how many posters on various blogs that I visit in the last decade would have outdone him had they been born in old Soviet Union or in any of the Eastern block countries. I know the type. Uncritical defenders of the system (that they have no say or control over) because it is “good for them”. Their core being and self esteem pegged to the fact that they are American – and nothing else to show. Stubborn belief and stance that many are abandoning now and even want Putin to be their Prez! An asshole poster on Kunstler’s blog wants to move to Bulgaria – the country that he, undoubtedly, looked down upon (backward and commie) just few years back. Who could pass on good deal there?
    Decade ago, first serious signs that wheels of the entire belief structure are coming off, led many to the internet in search for an answer. Despite of being obvious that The System is working against them they would lash in anger to any poster who was “pointing to the obvious”. Remember: “We are f**king No1!”, “The Best Country in the World!”, “Get the f**ck out
    here and make sure that the door….” Bit later on, when “obvious became obvious”, I do remember Orlov being pelted, just because HE (being Ruskie) had to say “the obvious”. I could go on….
    Strange times indeed. Now days, in the light of current events we do have weird “luxury” to look back and review the events and massive carnage that we did not bother to notice because “life was good”. Mosaic made of all those events is nearing completion into grand art piece titled: “You’re on your own”. Well… if WE let you.
    Food for thought: Carl Sagan would have been THE SAME MAN if he was born in Moscow, or anywhere else. Passion for knowledge, justice and genuine human decency transcends borders and “systems”.

    From ‘Pre-exposure to mRNA-LNP inhibits adaptive immune responses and alters innate immune fitness in an inheritable fashion’:

    INTRODUCTION

    “..The mRNA-LNP vaccine platform gained much attention with the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Initially, this vaccine platform was thought to be non-inflammatory since the mRNA has been modified and purified to limit innate immune activation [1–3]. At the same time, the lipid nanoparticle (LNP) component was considered an inert carrier and protector of the mRNA. However, recently has been shown that the synthetic ionizable lipid component of the LNPs is highly inflammatory [4], and this is a critical component to support induction of adaptive immune responses. These LNPs mixed with proteins induce comparable responses to mRNA-LNPs [5]. The platform can support the induction of adaptive immune responses in the absence of a variety of different inflammatory cytokines, -pathways, and innate immune cells [5–7].

    The acute side effects reported with the mRNA-LNP vaccine platform are diverse and likely associated with its highly inflammatory nature and partially mediated by innate immune responses [4,8]. In addition to the induction of specific T- and B-cell activation, certain vaccines or infections can affect long-term innate immune responses by either increasing or decreasing the activation of innate immune cells [9]. Furthermore, the innate immune reprogramming induced by certain vaccines can interfere with the immune responses induced by other vaccines [9]. The possible short and long-term immunological changes of the mRNA-LNP vaccine outside the induction of antigen-specific anti-SARS-CoV-2 responses are unknown. A recent human study awaiting peer-review reported innate and adaptive immune reprogramming with this platform [10], while single-cell RNA-seq studies on human white blood cells derived from vaccinated people also revealed significant changes in innate immune cells [11]. Whether the reported changes are long-lasting and can influence immune fitness or interfere with the responses induced by other vaccines remains to be determined..”

    Everyone knows NATO has it’s soldiers unofficially fighting in the Ukraine. Many of these NATO soldiers are being given “time credits” from their own militaries, while fighting in the Ukraine.

    Notice however, that none of these NATO soldiers ever seem to get killed. In a war, this is simply not possible. So how are these deaths being hidden from their families and the public? One way is via helicopters crashes while training. A single helicopter crash can hide hundreds of deaths. Expect to see many more helicopter deaths.

    Areas of the Ukraine that Russia intends to keep, can be easily distinguished, from the areas Russia doesn’t intend to keep. How? Simple. If Ukrainian 1road signs are replaced by Russian road signs. Local Ukrainian banks become Russian banks. Ukrainian money turns into Russian Rubles. Local infrastructure is being rebuilt. If none of these are happening in your neighborhood, then you are out of luck.

    Mass formation in action
    This is an excerpt from the choir director to the choristers:
    – We (including me!) have all kinds of feelings about rules and authority: “Stop telling me what to do” or “I don’t want to be the police” or “Am I in trouble?” etc. These feelings get in the way of us following through on our agreement to wear a mask and/or helping each other remember to wear masks. I will make an effort to ignore these feelings and be more helpful in reminding you to wear masks when you forget; please help me by doing the same.

    I will make an effort to ignore these feelings…

    Idiotic. Those feelings EXIST to inform that there is something gravely WRONG with the situation and the current response to it. This is the “subconscious mind” disagreeing with the prefrontal cortex (i.e. “following through with our agreement”) and the prefrontal cortex suppressing the messages. This is not healthy. Yes, sometimes these sorts of feelings need to be suppressed in the moment, and it isn’t wise to have a habit of succumbing to them fully. However, the “wise mind” will periodically pause and listen to such feelings, looking for the source, trying to resolve the situation that is causing them. In this case, the “feelings” are the subconscious crying out that the prefrontal cortex has been deceived, the the being’s actions are not in harmony with its core values.

    I think that this is why, historically, it is the most educated that often fall more fully prey to mass formation — they have more skill and experience in suppressing their subconscious self — they, literally, have more discipline.

    The difference between UK energy prices and EU energy prices boils down to one simple fact. The City of London. They knew ahead of time exactly what was going to happen in the UK and acted to capitalize on it. It was like shooting fish in a barrel!

    However, Europe was a different kettle of fish. Since the consensus wasn’t so clear, it wasn’t like shooting fish in a barrel. Also the EU is more socialist, so capitalism wasn’t such a sure thing. But they still made a killing.

    Europe has employed more floating gas storage and regassification units (GSRU) to help increase winter gas storage levels above 80%. These units help import more LNG.

    The foot floor sanders. I have often wondered how wooden floors got sanded smppth in the good old days. I figured many rough saw cut flooring just got smooth by many feet over time. Modern wooden floors come already planed so require very machine sanding to make them smooth. Now you can even buy pre-stained and finished wood flooring.

    I guess floor foot sanders simply and quietly disappeared into history, just like the blacksmiths.

    So your conclusion, about the level of education, is backed up by my observations too!

    What’s with the hating? Can’t people have different opinions that they substantiate with articles and evidence?

    When hatred goes kinetic- they lock us down, force inject us and demand we support their nazi/azov wars…. Contempt for their lies and abuses simply fuels love for truth, reality and freedom. Their hatred supports my love for truth, which only grows stronger. Holding my pure blood diploma high…

    “Hate And War”

    Hate and war – the only things we got today

    An’ if I close my eyes
    They will not go away
    You have to deal with it

    It is the currency

    Hate…hate…hate…

    The hate of a nation
    A million miles from home
    An’ get war from the junkies
    Who don’t like my form

    I’m gonna stay in the city
    Even when the house fall down
    I don’t dream of a holiday
    When hate an’ war come around

    Hate and war…

    I have the will to survive
    I cheat if I can’t win
    If someone locks me out
    I kick my way back in

    An’ if I get aggression
    I give it to them two time back

    Every day it’s just the same
    With hate an’ war on my back

    Carry on with your War of words.

    “Special Military Operation, Season 2
    Things are starting to heat up.
    Big Serge”

    Did that entity really use the term ‘Season 2’- as though what is being
    portrayed is some kind of TV show?

    I continue to wonder what’s happening in Ukraine, and other places.

    Thought alone, when it is no longer connected with the much vaster realm of consciousness, quickly becomes barren, insane, destructive.

    Complete identification with the mind (the belief that I am my thoughts) is the cause of failure, suffering and insanity. A person in this state—convinced by the story of “me against the universe”—suffers from so much fear and panic.

    Even still today, most people never look at or question their belief in separation. Instead, exhaustive effort is made to blame other people, limitations and situations for their suffering. “If only this person would change, or if only I could find a way to accomplish this, then I could finally be happy.” This way of thinking appears to make sense when we are young (Child EGO), but as we get older something else happens.

    As you mature, you look back upon all the things that were supposed to make you happy and supposed to end your suffering. Much of it was eventually accomplished. But just as soon as it was, of course you found the next reason to suffer. At some point, you face a choice to either sink into despair or, far better, you learn to merely observe thought rather than trusting it.

    The sane, creative, productive mind has learned to humble itself to the vast realm of consciousness. The mind isn’t you; rather, merely a useful tool to channel being into doing. Of itself, the mind has no real power, knowledge or truth.

    That which is real is beyond the mind and can be best described as unconditional love. When this is known, the mind functions optimally and the suffering ends ~ Eckhart Tolle

    Putin has been found out . The five_D chess player was playing with himself. His reputation will never recover. Right now national leaders who flocked to Moscow to sit at the feet of the new leader of the world will be back-pedalling and wondering how to extricate themselves from their entanglement with a loser. The problem arose because yes men in Intel told Putin what he wanted to hear , not what he needed to hear. That happens when you have a strong stubborn leader who has staff that are afraid to tell the truth.The entire SMO strategy was premised on contrived intel that the Russian columns could drive to Kiev throwing lfowers to their supporter who were going to flock to the Russian tanks to hug and kiss their liberators. Meanwhile in Kiev more pro-Russian forces were going to seize power , align with Russia, cease all hostilities and allow Russia full access to Ukraine to exterminate the Nazis in their ranks , they would declare Ukraine neutral and swear to never join NATO or the EU and Russia would have solved everythiong without a war.
    Unfortunately fpr Russia that was all hubris and the troops that were waiting around Kiev and on the highways to the East were mauled by Ukrainian troops with hand held anti-tank weapons. After waiting for two weeks and suffering heavy losses they retreated and had to totally change their tactics. By this time they were well on the way to annexing the South East of Ukraine and had established a thousand kilometer front with a hostile Kiev still in place who being fully supported by NATO.The promised fall of Kiev totally exploded the plans for the SMO , now they were in a war of attrition without enough forces trying to defend a thousand kilometer front under the constraints of the legally binding rules of the SMO ,meaning no attacks against any non-military infrastruture , an infrastructure that was being used by the Ukranian military to fullfill it’s logistic needs right across the country.
    They were undermanned and survived by forming a wall of artillery that allowed their sparsely scattered troops to slowly inch forward but with having to constantly move their troops up and down the line to cope with the fluctuations on the field. Behind the lines there were no defensive positions , behind the lines life was returning to normal with Ukrainian Russians asking for and receiving assurances that they were safe and would be protected. Now all of the remainers in the newly captured territories must be worried sick about their future and the possibilities of a return of the Ukranians to exact revenge on those that supported Russia. How many souls in Kharkiv will right now be facing a firing squad . What a terrible failure for Russia , failing completely to keep it’s word to the locals who supported them.
    So the offensive that all the pro-Russian pundits said was impossible finally happened with hundreds of thousands of Ukranians troops and heavy equipment throwing themselves at the line from the South to the North searching for a weakness. The front line in the North was bare of all seasoned fighting troops and defensive lines. The Ukranians breached the line and stormed sixty kilometres back into their lost territory. The few Russians on hand fled and the Russian command had to declare a full retreat back to the Donbass border , a total rout in the North was then followed by a massive redployment of Ukrainian troops back to the South for a renewed offensive there , the Russians were in disarray and some body in command struck down the SMO rules of engagement and the strikes against the electrical grid was called in to prevent the Ukrainian redeployment. The rules of engagement for the SMO were legally binding for the Russian military and any commanders breaking those rules were commiting war crimes under Russian military law. So some how the rules of engagement were changed very quickly and in some panic because of the Ukranian pressure. The change of the parameters of the SMO was an act that meant accepting that the SMO was a failure. So now the old SMO is gone but what is the new rules of engagement , what new plan is going to replace the failed SMO strategy? Putin and co. must decide and decide quickly , the battlefield needs a strategic plan to function . Hence we see the debate on Russian TV between the realists and the hubrists that still beleive some how there can still be a Russian victory, but does any body know what that victory actually looks like? Is it a victory where all of Ukraine lies in a smoking ruin with tens of thousands of dead civilians and Russia raising the victory flag over a population that hates them and are ready to fight a Western backed insurgency war against Russian occupation? To negotiate is almost impossible because the West is demanding the complete withdrawal of all Russian troops and the surrender of Donbass and Crimea ,which is totally unacceptable for Russia.So Putin’s come to God moment is here , the Russian bluff has been called and now the decisions will be very tough , there is no really winning option at this point, every move from here is going to have negative results for Russia , is Putin up to the job? Will the West get it’s way and see him offstage soon? This is a real crisis for the Russian leadership and the Russian people , make they make their decisions wisely.

    phoenix: “The mass formation around Covid and the vaccines is pernicious and cannot last too many years — because it is deadly and debilitating, and does not help people to effectively live their lives.”

    From your lips, er, keyboard … to God’s ears. Please.

    For now, I see what’s operating as a ‘pincer movement’, with no good-faith online opposition to what’s being inflicted on the great majority of the citizenries, worldwide.

    we’ll see how it goes.

    Lots of trivial online brouhahas, signifying nothing.. except most
    ordinary people’s lives getting slowly,
    grindingly worse.

    “Mass Formation Psychosis”? If you say so, sure. To me it just looks like a ruling class doing as most of those would under such circumstances, but with more totalizing tools..

    Is the internet the citizens’ tool; or are its users the tools of it?

    Notice who designed and implemented it..
