“..the EU began as a group of nations that banded together for mutual economic benefit through the deregulation of trade. Now “they are being corralled together” so their lives will become “colder, poorer, and harder,” she said.”

Moscow Outlines ‘Diabolical’ Plan By Washington (RT)

Ukraine’s newly published proposal for Western security guarantees is an invitation for the economic self-immolation of the EU, according to Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry. The Russian diplomat believes that the proposed international agreement which Kiev released on Tuesday is an economic trap for EU nations set by the US with Ukraine’s assistance. Most of the measures included in the document “are already being implemented” by Kiev’s backers, but Washington’s EU allies are expected to pledge to keep the Ukraine aid money flowing for the foreseeable future, Zakharova said in an interview on Wednesday. If signed, the ‘Kiev Security Compact’ would mean “harsh slavery” for the bloc which it would not recover from anytime soon, she claimed.

“A total commitment to supporting the Kiev regime would simply mean immolation [for the EU]. And this proposal is addressed to nations that are debating how they can live through the winter,” Zakharova said, in reference to the energy shortages that EU member states are struggling to confront. Developed EU nations face an economic and humanitarian disaster after taking directions from the US on how to respond to the crisis in Ukraine, according to the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman. The situation is ironic, she believes, as the EU began as a group of nations that banded together for mutual economic benefit through the deregulation of trade. Now “they are being corralled together” so their lives will become “colder, poorer, and harder,” she said.

This is Washington’s diabolical plan to destroy what was previously called the common European space. The Ukrainian security proposal was prepared by a group co-chaired by Andrey Yermak, the chief of staff of President Vladimir Zelensky, and former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The 10-page document outlines NATO-like security guarantees for Ukraine by the US and its allies that would benefit Kiev until it formally joins the Washington-led military bloc. It also calls for continued military and financial aid for Ukraine by the guarantors.

“..a “multi-decade” plan of investment, military training, and intelligence sharing to bolster Ukraine’s defensive capabilities as the country pursues full NATO membership.”

“Prologue To Third World War”: Kremlin Reacts To Security Guarantees For Ukraine (ZH)

Ukraine wants a ‘NATO-esque’ bloc which can be called upon to immediately defend borders with Russia, which was proposed by a working group established by President Volodymyr Zelensky. Crucially it would include the United States and other NATO allies providing Ukraine with “security guarantees”. Kiev officials stressed in unveiling the plan Tuesday that it’s not meant as a replacement for NATO, but as a legally binding alliance to be in place while Ukraine eventually pursues full NATO membership, as Newsweek describes of the proposal: “The Kyiv Security Compact (KSC)—proposed by Andriy Yermak, the head of Zelensky’s office, and former NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen—would also establish a “multi-decade” plan of investment, military training, and intelligence sharing to bolster Ukraine’s defensive capabilities as the country pursues full NATO membership.”

The Kremlin’s reaction has been swift and fierce, with Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev warning that it is “really a prologue to the Third World War” if it gets enacted. He described that nuclear holocaust would be the end result. According to a translation of Medvedev’s reaction in state media, which had been posted in a statement to Telegram, he blamed “dull idiots” from “stupid think tanks” for concocting such a “hysterical appeal”. Medvedev wrote: “And then the Western nations will not be able to sit in their clean homes, laughing at how they carefully weaken Russia by proxy. Everything will be on fire around them. Their people will harvest their grief in full. The land will be on fire and the concrete will melt.”

“Yet still the narrow-minded politicians and their stupid think tanks, thoughtfully twirling a glass of wine in their hands, talk about how they can deal with us without entering into a direct war. Dull idiots with a classical education.” He said that already the conflict in Ukraine is sliding into unknown, unpredictable territory of escalation due to the West’s “unrestrained pumping of the Kiev regime with the most dangerous types of weapons.” He added to the statements as follows according to a translation: “The Kyiv camarilla gave birth to a project of “security guarantees”, which are a prologue to the third world war. Of course, no one will give any “guarantees” to the Ukrainian Nazis. After all, this is almost the same as applying Article 5 of the North Atlantic Pact (Washington Treaty) to Ukraine. For NATO – the same shit, only a side view. Therefore, it’s scary.”

Insanity squared.

US, Ukraine Are In Talks To Transfer Fighter Jets & Longer-Range Missiles (ZH)

The US and its allies are in talks over whether to send Ukraine more advanced weapons in the future, including fighter jets, US defense sources have said, according to the Financial Times. The Kharkiv counteroffensive has apparently emboldened Ukrainian officials to press Washington harder for more advanced and longer-range weapons, now that some degree of success in rolling back Russian forces can be demonstrated. The idea is that if Ukraine’s forces can prove they’ve taken back significant territory with what defense systems the US has provided so far, they can ultimately make the case that the whole of the east and south is within their reach – and even the potential to liberate Crimea while they’re at it – if longer range and more advanced arms are made available.

The Financial Times reports this week that active discussions between the US and Ukraine are underway concerning Kiev’s weapons wish list: “A senior US defense official said Washington and its allies were discussing Ukraine’s longer term needs, such as air defenses, and whether it might be appropriate to give Kyiv fighter aircraft in the “medium to longer term”. To date, the US and its allies have declined to do so. But interestingly and quite tellingly, the report immediately follows with the acknowledgement that Ukrainian leaders are perhaps naturally incentivize to exaggerate battlefield gains at this moment. Here’s more from the FT as the Pentagon offers a “cautiously optimistic” assessment of Ukraine’s ongoing counteroffensives in the east and south:

“Ukrainian military officials have said in recent days they have taken more than 3,000 sq km of terrain in what has become Moscow’s biggest military setback since it was forced to scrap plans to conquer Kyiv. But late on Monday night President Volodymyr Zelenskyy practically doubled those claims as Ukraine’s forces continued to advance.” Something Ukraine has additionally long been asking for is longer-range missile systems. A Monday Wall Street Journal report detailed that Kiev is now requesting from the Pentagon the Army’s Tactical Missile System, or ATACMS, a surface-to-surface missile system with the capability of reaching about 190 miles. This would be far and beyond the range of missiles transferred to Ukraine thus far in the conflict.

The Biden administration in the early months resisted sending longer range missiles, admitting its fears that doing so could draw the US and Russia into direct conflict – given longer range munitions means Ukrainian forces would have the capability of hitting inside Russian territory. This has already happened with Crimea, and even recently with bases inside Russia proper near the border. But now US defense officials are looking over a new strategy proposal and weapons request submitted by Valeriy Zaluzhny, the commander in chief of Ukraine’s force. WSJ details of the document: They argued that Russia has long-range cruise missiles that greatly outdistance the systems in the Ukrainian inventory. A turning point could come if the Ukrainians also had longer-range systems, they argued, specifically mentioning the ATACMS. “The only way to radically change the strategic situation is, without a doubt, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to launch several consecutive, and ideally, simultaneous counterattacks during the 2023 campaign,” they wrote.

“Sooner rather than later, gloves – velvet and otherwise – will be off. Exit SMO. Enter War.”

The Kharkov Game-Changer (Escobar)

Wars are not won by psyops. Ask Nazi Germany. Still, it’s been a howler to watch NATOstan media on Kharkov, gloating in unison about “the hammer blow that knocks out Putin”, “the Russians are in trouble”, and assorted inanities. Facts: Russian forces withdrew from the territory of Kharkov to the left bank of the Oskol river, where they are now entrenched. A Kharkov-Donetsk-Luhansk line seems to be stable. Krasny Liman is threatened, besieged by superior Ukrainian forces, but not lethally. No one – not even Maria Zakharova, the contemporary female equivalent of Hermes, the messenger of the Gods – knows what the Russian General Staff (RGS) plans, in this case and all others. If they say they do, they are lying.

As it stands, what may be inferred with a reasonable degree of certainty is that a line – Svyatogorsk-Krasny Liman-Yampol-Belogorovka – can hold out long enough with their current garrisons until fresh Russian forces are able to swoop in and force the Ukrainians back beyond the Seversky Donets line. All hell broke loose – virtually – on why Kharkov happened. The people’s republics and Russia never had enough men to defend a 1,000 km-long frontline. NATO’s entire intel capabilities noticed – and profited from it. There were no Russian Armed Forces in those settlements: only Rosgvardia, and these are not trained to fight military forces. Kiev attacked with an advantage of around 5 to 1. The allied forces retreated to avoid encirclement. There are no Russian troop losses because there were no Russian troops in the region.

Arguably this may have been a one-off. The NATO-run Kiev forces simply can’t do a replay anywhere in Donbass, or in Kherson, or in Mariupol. These are all protected by strong, regular Russian Army units. It’s practically a given that if the Ukrainians remain around Kharkov and Izyum they will be pulverized by massive Russian artillery. Military analyst Konstantin Sivkov maintains that, “most combat-ready formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are now being grounded (…) we managed to lure them into the open and are now systematically destroying them.” The NATO-run Ukrainian forces, crammed with NATO mercenaries, had spent 6 months hoarding equipment and reserving trained assets exactly for this Kharkov moment – while dispatching disposables into a massive meat grinder.

It will be very hard to sustain an assembly line of substantial prime assets to pull off something similar again. The next days will show whether Kharkov and Izyum are connected to a much larger NATO push. The mood in NATO-controlled EU is approaching Desperation Row. There’s a strong possibility this counter-offensive signifies NATO entering the war for good, while displaying quite tenuous plausible deniability: their veil of – fake – secrecy cannot disguise the presence of “advisers” and mercenaries all across the spectrum.[..] This is an existential war. A do or die affair. The American geopolitical /geoeconomic goal, to put it bluntly, is to destroy Russian unity, impose regime change and plunder all those immense natural resources. Ukrainians are nothing but cannon fodder: in a sort of twisted History remake, the modern equivalents of the pyramid of skulls Timur cemented into 120 towers when he razed Baghdad in 1401.sIf may take a “hammer blow” for the RSG to wake up. Sooner rather than later, gloves – velvet and otherwise – will be off. Exit SMO. Enter War.

“Winning a battle is one thing; winning a war another.”

Why Russia Will Still Win, Despite Ukraine’s Gains (Scott Ritter)

The Ukrainian battle plan has “Made in Brussels” stamped all over it. The force composition was determined by NATO, as was the timing of the attacks and the direction of the attacks. NATO intelligence carefully located seams in the Russian defenses and identified critical command and control, logistics, and reserve concentration nodes that were targeted by Ukrainian artillery, which operates on a fire control plan created by NATO. In short, the Ukrainian army that Russia faced in Kherson and around Kharkov was unlike any Ukrainian opponent it had previously faced. Russia was no longer fighting a Ukrainian army equipped by NATO, but rather a NATO army manned by Ukrainians.

Ukraine continues to receive billions of dollars of military assistance, and currently has tens of thousands of troops undergoing extensive training in NATO nations. There will be a fourth phase, and a fifth phase … as many phases as necessary before Ukraine either exhausts its will to fight and die, NATO exhausts its ability to continue supplying the Ukrainian military, or Russia exhausts its willingness to fight an inconclusive conflict in Ukraine.

[..] In the end, I still believe the end game remains the same — Russia will win. But the cost for extending this war has become much higher for all parties involved. The successful Ukrainian counteroffensive needs to be put into a proper perspective. The casualties Ukraine suffered, and is still suffering, to achieve this victory are unsustainable. Ukraine has exhausted its strategic reserves, and they will have to be reconstituted if Ukraine were to have any aspirations of continuing an advance along these lines. This will take months. Russia, meanwhile, has lost nothing more than some indefensible space. Russian casualties were minimal, and equipment losses readily replaced.

Russia has actually strengthened its military posture by creating strong defensive lines in the north capable of withstanding any Ukrainian attack, while increasing combat power available to complete the task of liberating the remainder of the Donetsk People’s Republic under Ukrainian control. Russia has far more strategic depth than Ukraine. Russia is beginning to strike critical infrastructure targets, such as power stations, that will not only cripple the Ukrainian economy, but also their ability to move large amounts of troops rapidly via train. Russia will learn from the lessons the Kharkov defeat taught them and continue its stated mission objectives.

The bottom line – the Kharkov offensive was as good as it will get for Ukraine, while Russia hasn’t come close to hitting rock bottom. Changes need to be made by Russia to fix the problems identified through the Kharkov defeat. Winning a battle is one thing; winning a war another. For Ukraine, the huge losses suffered by their own forces, combined with the limited damage inflicted on Russia means the Kharkov offensive is, at best, a Pyrrhic victory, one that does not change the fundamental reality that Russia is winning, and will win, the conflict in Ukraine.

The IAEA can’t speak. Ukraine=NATO.

Ukraine Has Put World On Brink Of ‘Nuclear Catastrophe’ – Moscow (RT)

Ukraine’s attacks on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant are creating an unacceptable risk, the chairman of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, said on Tuesday. Moscow will act to prevent a disaster from happening, while the US does not seem to care about the potential damage to Ukraine and its European NATO allies, the speaker of the Russian parliament has said. “Kiev’s terrorist actions are putting the world on the brink of a nuclear catastrophe. We cannot allow this to happen,” Volodin said, opening the legislature’s autumn session. While the US may be far away from the plant, “their NATO allies in Europe stand to suffer” in case of a radioactive release, Volodin noted, adding that the US government and EU parliaments are silent about the threat, but many other states around the world share Russia’s concern about the situation.

Russia has controlled Europe’s largest nuclear power plant since March. Attacks on the facility started in July, with the Russian Defense Ministry documenting more than 30 artillery and drone strikes, as well as two attempts by Ukrainian commandos to storm the plant, one during the visit of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) mission earlier this month. Kiev has accused Moscow of staging the shelling to make Ukraine look bad, even though its military eventually admitted to targeting the area.

IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, who personally led the mission to inspect the plant, said on Monday that both Russia and Ukraine are “interested” in a proposal for a local ceasefire and a security zone around the ZNPP. All of its six reactors are currently offline, due to the ongoing artillery threat. Moscow has rejected any notion of withdrawing its troops from the area, however, with the Kremlin saying that the only discussion at this time is “about forcing the Ukrainian side to stop the barbaric shelling” of the premises. In his remarks on Tuesday, Volodin said, “time has once again shown the correctness of the decision” by President Vladimir Putin to send troops into Ukraine in February.

“The European Commission has reportedly backpedaled on the gas price cap and is currently working on a mechanism to tax the windfall profits of energy companies.”

Top Hungarian Official Predicts Easing Of Sanctions (RT)

The EU will review the sanctions on Russia and could lift some of them as soon as this autumn, Hungarian State Secretary for Foreign Affairs and Trade Tamas Menczer predicts. The restrictions imposed on Russian trade to punish it for attacking Ukraine have failed to change Moscow’s behavior and actually rewarded it with increased revenues, after they triggered a spike in energy prices, the MP said during an appearance on M1 TV on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the European countries that imposed the sanctions are facing energy shortages. “Reality knocks on the door of every country,”Menczer said, explaining why he believes the sanctions will be lifted sooner rather than later. Member states are set to review their sanctions policies later in the autumn.


The Hungarian MP confirmed that his country, which criticized the EU’s drive to decouple the economy of the bloc from Russian energy, opposed the idea of introducing a price cap on gas bought from foreign nations. He called the proposal absurd and impractical, citing Moscow’s promises to cut supplies to customers that try to dictate the price. The European Commission has reportedly backpedaled on the gas price cap and is currently working on a mechanism to tax the windfall profits of energy companies. Brussels is also urging EU nations to impose various energy-saving measures to better prepare for peak consumption during the winter. Last week, Hungarian Parliament Speaker Laszlo Kover claimed that the EU is the “loser” in the Ukraine conflict due to the economic damage caused by the sanctions.

“..as much as 70% of the funding due between 2021 and 2027 may be withheld from Hungary owing to non-compliance..”

EU May Punish Hungary (RT)

The European Commission will recommend withholding funds from the Hungarian government over allegations of corruption in the country, Bloomberg claimed on Wednesday, confirming earlier reports in the Hungarian press. The assessment is expected to be unveiled as soon as Sunday. The EU launched a probe against Hungary shortly after its prime minister, Viktor Orban, shored up his domestic position by winning the April general election in a landslide. The investigation was triggered under a recently adopted EU law that links payments of subsidies to member states to their compliance with the bloc’s rule-of-law norms.According to Bloomberg’s sources, the European Commission is almost ready to release its conclusions. The executive body is to recommend slashing the funding pending improvement in adherence to the norms, senior EU officials told the agency.

The final decision will be made within three months after the report is released, with a qualified majority of votes by the bloc’s members required to adopt it. Brussels may give Budapest a grace period of up to three months to follow its recommendations and to implement a number of measures that the Hungarian government promised to enact to alleviate the EU’s concerns, according to Bloomberg. According to EUobserver, a publication specializing in covering EU policies, as much as 70% of the funding due between 2021 and 2027 may be withheld from Hungary owing to non-compliance. The total sum would amount to over €40 billion, according to the Bloomberg report. The Orban government was blocked from accessing the EU money during the probe.

The anti-corruption measures that Budapest proposed in late August include creating a new authority to oversee the spending of EU funds and amending Hungarian laws on public procurements. The country’s justice minister, Judit Varga, met EU officials last week to discuss the package. The timeline for the release of the graft report was first revealed by the Hungarian newspaper Nepszava on Tuesday evening. Its sources said that 20% of EU subsidies were at risk of being suspended unless Budapest meets Brussels’ demands. The punishment, if implemented, would be the first case of its kind. The EU leadership has voiced concerns about the rule of law in several Eastern European countries, most notably Hungary and Poland.

Summit With Putin, Xi Will Showcase Alternative To Western World: Kremlin (AFP)

A regional summit this week where Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet China’s Xi Jinping and other Asian leaders will showcase an “alternative” to the Western world, the Kremlin said Tuesday. Putin and Xi will be joined by the leaders of India, Pakistan, Turkey, Iran and several other countries for the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in the Uzbek city of Samarkand on Thursday and Friday. The SCO — made up of China, Russia, India, Pakistan and four ex-Soviet Central Asian countries — was set up in 2001 as a political, economic and security organisation to rival Western institutions. The meeting will be part of Xi’s first trip abroad since the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and comes with relations between Russia and the West shattered by the conflict in Ukraine. “The SCO offers a real alternative to Western-centric organisations,” Kremlin foreign policy advisor Yuri Ushakov told reporters in Moscow.


“All members of the SCO stand for a just world order,” he said, describing the summit as taking place “against the background of large-scale geopolitical changes”. The SCO, he said, “is the largest organisation in the world, it includes half the population of our planet”. Putin will hold talks with Xi, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday, Ushakov said, before attending the main session of the summit on Friday. On Friday he will also meet with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev. “The meeting with Xi is of particular importance, major international and regional topics will be discussed,” including the conflict in Ukraine and growing Russia-China economic ties, Ushakov said.

History lesson.

Ukraine Had A Huge Influence On The Soviet Union (Negopodin)

Even now, many pages in the history of the Soviet Union remain a mystery. One of these concerns the ethnic composition of the country’s leadership. Such information was not published by the Party’s Central Committee until 1989, and biographies of members of the governing bodies during the entire Soviet period were not released until 1990, just before the dissolution of the USSR. All of these documents confirmed that many of its statesmen, politicians, diplomats, as well as military and intelligence officers, had been born in Ukraine. However, information about their ethnic origin was often omitted. Also, many of those who originated from Ukraine were registered as ‘Russian’ or simply as ‘Soviet’. This is why it is so difficult to assess the full scope of political influence Ukrainians had on the decision-making process in the Soviet Union.

It is true that Ukrainians contributed a great deal to building socialism. If we round them all up, we see that there had always been very large numbers of people from Ukraine in the top tiers of power. Two of them, Nikita Khrushchev and Leonid Brezhnev, ruled the country as general secretary of the Communist Party’s Central Committee. The country’s final ruler, Mikhail Gorbachev, was the descendant of Ukrainian peasants who had moved to Stavropol. [..] The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was managed by local elites, which is completely at odds with the modern myth of Ukraine having been an ‘oppressed nation’ in the Soviet Union. Moreover, so many Ukrainians held key positions in the Soviet government that any allegations made by the present-day Ukrainian authorities about the Ukrainian SSR struggling under the yoke of the Russian SFSR and being de facto Soviet Russia’s colony simply don’t have a leg to stand on.

On the contrary, by the 1950s, the Ukrainian SSR had become a full-fledged statelet that had its own constitution and flag and even parliament. In fact, its structure mirrored that of the government of the Soviet Union itself. Ukraine’s policy was determined by the Communist Party of Ukraine with the Politburo being its highest body of power; its legislative branch was represented by the Supreme Council (this later became the Verkhovna Rada); and executive power was wielded by the Council of Ministers.

But vaccinate!

End of Covid in Sight – WHO (RT)

World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared on Wednesday that the end of the Covid-19 pandemic is close at hand. While the virus is still spreading at the same level as last year, despite mass vaccination, deaths have fallen significantly. “We are not there yet. But the end is in sight,”Tedros said at a press briefing. Claiming that vaccination and other public health measures have reduced the threat posed by the virus, the WHO chief called on governments to push for 100% vaccination of vulnerable people and healthcare workers, and 70% vaccination of the general public.

“A marathon runner does not stop when the finish line comes into view, she runs harder with all the energy that she has left,” he said. “Now is the worst time to stop running.” The impact of vaccines, masks, lockdowns, and other public health measures on the virus’ spread has been a controversial issue, with near-totally vaccinated countries like Singapore still experiencing waves of infection this summer that dwarfed similar spikes in 2021 and 2020. Some 3.1 million cases of Covid-19 were confirmed globally in the week ending September 5, compared to 3.9 million in the same week in 2021, and 1.9 million in the same week in 2020.

Deaths have fallen, however, with 11,000 linked to the virus in the week ending September 5, the lowest weekly total since March 16, 2020. Tedros announced that the WHO would release six policy briefs for governments later on Wednesday, outlining the steps the organization thinks are necessary to avoid “more variants, more deaths, more destruction and more uncertainty.” Among these steps are the aforementioned vaccination push, the maintenance of infection control measures in hospitals, increased testing and sequencing, and the administration of appropriate treatment to patients.

“However, what it will do very effectively, if you got reasonably intact mRNA, is to cause you significant harm. You are playing a game of chance with your immune system and what is in the bottle.”

Why Health Officials Won’t Let Scientists Examine mRNA Vaccine Vials (Mercola)

A 14-minute video (below) that has been overlooked for nearly two years has now resurfaced, exposing stunning information about the COVID-19 jabs and why health officials don’t want individual vaccine vials examined by independent scientists. The reason, it turns out, is because the vials are all different — and the mRNA in the shots “is not intact.” Both of these pose potentially serious problems. In an Aug. 31 Substack article, Steve Kirsch explains: “Even if you are getting 100% intact mRNA which would be really rare, you’re still not getting anything that resembles the virus. So the efficacy as far as PROTECTING you will be next to nothing. “However, what it will do very effectively, if you got reasonably intact mRNA, is to cause you significant harm. You are playing a game of chance with your immune system and what is in the bottle.”

The video notes that members of the European Parliament were only allowed to read the contracts with the drug makers after they’d been heavily redacted. Why the heavy-handed secrecy, even toward legislators? The finding that the mRNA in the shots was of questionable quality was revealed in a British Medical Journal feature investigation article published in March 2021. As explained by the author, journalist Serena Tinari, cyber attackers retrieved more than 40 megabytes of Pfizer COVID-19 jab data from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in December 2020. The hacked data was subsequently sent to journalists and academics worldwide. It was also published on the dark web. Some of the documents show European regulators had significant concerns over the lack of intact mRNA in the commercial batches sampled.

Compared to the clinical batches, i.e., the shots used in the clinical trial, 55% to 78% of the commercial shots had “a significant difference in % RNA integrity/truncated species.” In one email, dated Nov. 23, 2020, a high-ranking EMA official noted that the commercial batches failed to meet expected specifications, and that the implications of this RNA integrity loss were unclear. In response to the findings, the EMA sent a list of questions and concerns to Pfizer. While we do not know if and how the EMA’s concerns were actually addressed and corrected, the EMA authorized Pfizer’s COVID-19 jab Dec. 21, 2020.

Denmark ENDS Covid Vaccinations For Almost Everyone Under 50 (Berenson)

Denmark will bar almost everyone under 50 from receiving more mRNA Covid jabs, the Danish Health Authority said yesterday. Denmark had already ended Covid shots for nearly everyone under 18. The new rules go much further. Danes under 50 will only be allowed to receive the shots if they are “higher risk of becoming severely [emphasis added] from Covid-19.” The Danish Health Authority has not yet defined those groups, but they will likely include only a handful of people, such as those receiving cancer treatments that suppress their immune systems. Pregnant women are unlikely to be included.

Denmark did not explicitly say the risks of mRNA jabs now outweigh their benefits for healthy people under 50. But that view is implicit in the announcement, which does not merely discourage but actually bans shots for those people, even though Denmark expects “a large wave of [Covid] infection” in the next few months. In other words, the health authority is not stopping shots because Covid has ended. It now believes most people are better off getting the coronavirus than taking more mRNA. The Danish move is particularly significant because Denmark has an excellent national health care system and has aggressively collected data on Covid and vaccines.

Denmark was among the first countries to stop giving Covid shots to healthy children and teenagers. Now other European countries are beginning to follow, with Britain ending mRNA shots for almost all children 10 and under. In yesterday’s announcement of the new policies, Denmark explicitly dropped any effort to halt the spread of the coronavirus and said that it will focus only on protecting people at very high risk: “We expect that a large part of the population will become infected with covid-19 during the autumn, and we therefore want to vaccinate those having the highest risk so that they are protected from severe illness.”

Climate Emergency Not Supported by Data: 4 Leading Italian Scientists (DS)

Four leading Italian scientists have undertaken a major review of historical climate trends and concluded that declaring a ‘climate emergency’ is not supported by the data. Reviewing data from a wide range of weather phenomena, they say a ‘climate crisis’ of the kind people are becoming alarmed about “is not evident yet”. The scientists suggest that rather than burdening our children with anxiety about climate change, we should encourage them to think about issues like energy, food and health, and the challenges in each area, with a more “objective and constructive spirit” and not waste limited resources on “costly and ineffective solutions”.

During the course of their work, the scientists found that rainfall intensity and frequency is stationary in many parts of the world. Tropical hurricanes and cyclones show little change over the long term, and the same is true of U.S. tornadoes. Other meteorological categories including natural disasters, floods, droughts and ecosystem productivity show no “clear positive trend of extreme events”. Regarding ecosystems, the scientists note a considerable “greening” of global plant biomass in recent decades caused by higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Satellite data show “greening” trends over most of the planet, increasing food yields and pushing back deserts.

The four scientists are all highly qualified and include physics adjunct professor Gianluca Alimonti, agrometeorologist Luigi Mariani and physics professors Franco Prodi and Renato Angelo Ricci. The last two are signatories to the rapidly growing ‘World Climate Declaration’. This petition states that there is no climate emergency and calls for climate science to be more scientific. It also calls for liberation from the “naïve belief in immature climate models”. In future, it says, “climate research must give significantly more emphasis to empirical science”.

‘Extreme’ weather events attributed by climate models – somehow – to anthropogenic global warming are now the main staple of the climate alarmist industry. As the Daily Sceptic reported on Monday, Sir David Attenborough used a U.K. Met Office model forecast in the first episode of Frozen Planet II to claim that summer Arctic sea ice could be gone within 12 years. But the likelihood of hardy swimming galas over the North Pole by 2035 seems somewhat remote, not least because Arctic sea ice has been growing in many summers since 2012. According to a recent report from the U.S.-based National Snow and Ice Data Center, at the end of August “sea ice extent is likely to remain higher than in recent years”.

UK Sports Body Tells People Not To Ride Bikes During Queen Funeral (RT)

British Cycling has U-turned on its previous “strong recommendation” that people should refrain from using their bicycles during the Queen’s funeral next week. Though the UK government had stressed there was no obligation to cancel or postpone any events during a period of national mourning following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last Thursday, some sports such as football have widely postponed matches as a mark of respect to the monarch. Adopting a similar stance, British Cycling released guidance that said it “strongly recommends that anybody out riding their bike on the day of the state funeral does so outside of the timings of the funeral service and associated processions, which will be confirmed later this week.”

This caused consternation among cyclists, with one noting that the funeral on Monday, September 19, clashes with their work hours. “Is it OK with you if I don’t follow your absolutely ridiculous advice and bike to work? Or would you rather I, as a mark of respect, pollute the air with my car? Maybe I can honk the national anthem on my horn?” they asked.British Cycling has since deleted the section of its guidance that says people shouldn’t cycle at all during the funeral for the 96-year-old Queen, but fresh recommendations have insisted that amateur cyclists should not go on rides with their clubs on Monday. “As a mark of respect to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, British Cycling’s guidance is that no formal domestic activities should take place on the day of the State Funeral, Monday 19 September,” it stated.

“This includes cycle sport events, club rides, coaching sessions and community programs (such as Breeze rides).”With good weather expected which often prompts long rides with clubs, this has also drawn criticism and has seen the organization dubbed a “joke” with conduct “worthy of the Stasi,” in reference to the former German state security service in operation from 1950 to 1990. Some cyclists have threatened to cancel their membership, with one balking that British Cycling is “an embarrassment at a time when hatred towards cycling feels at an all-time high.”

    The energy ‘transition’ graphic and text are spot on.

    We are ‘transitioning’ from having adequate industrially-distributed energy to having no industrially-distributed energy, i.e. fourteenth-century-style living arrangements. Been saying that for about 20 years.

    It is not what people want to hear. Hence they continue to believe the lies churned out by politicians and business ‘leaders’.

    The Earth supported around 700 million people before industrial agriculture and fossil-fuel-powered transport systems facilitated a population overshoot of around 7 billion.

    In 1958 Admiral Rickover suggested ‘advanced’ societies plan a transition away from finite (and rapidly depleting) fossil fuels.

    It was not what people wanted to hear.

    And it certainly was not what industrialists, bankers, ‘economists’ and politicians wanted to hear.

    So now, 64 years later, industrialists, bankers, ‘economists’ and politicians have only total fraud and total deceit to offer the lied-to and deluded masses.

    It might be a good time to remind people of this gem from 40 years ago:

    ‘Now, warning lights are flashing down at quality control
    Somebody threw a spanner, they threw him in the hole
    There’s rumors in the loading bay and anger in the town
    Somebody blew the whistle, and the walls came down
    There’s a meetin’ in the boardroom, they’re tryin’ to trace the smell
    There’s a leakin’ in the washroom, there’s a sneak-in personnel
    Somewhere in the corridors someone was heard to sneeze
    Goodness me, could this be industrial disease?

    Caretaker was crucified for sleeping at his post
    Refusing to be pacified, it’s him they blame the most
    Watchdog got rabies, the foreman got the fleas
    Everyone concerned about industrial disease
    There’s panic on the switchboard, tongues in knots
    Some come out in sympathy, some come out in spots

    Some blame the management, some the employees
    Everybody knows it’s the industrial disease

    Yeah, now the work force is disgusted, downs tools, walks
    Innocence is injured, experience just talks
    Everyone seeks damages, everyone agrees that
    These are classic symptoms of a monetary squeeze
    On ITV and BBC they talk about the curse
    Philosophy is useless, theology is worse
    History boils over, there’s an economics freeze
    Sociologists invent words that mean “industrial disease”

    Doctor Parkinson declared, “I’m not surprised to see you here
    You’ve got smokers cough from smoking, brewer’s droop from drinking beer
    I don’t know how you came to get the Bette Davis knees
    But worst of all young man, you’ve got industrial disease”
    He wrote me a prescription, he said, “You are depressed
    But I’m glad you came to see me to get this off your chest
    Come back and see me later, next patient, please
    Send in another victim of industrial disease”

    Ah! Splendid

    Now, I go down to Speaker’s Corner, I’m thunderstruck
    They got free speech tourists, police in trucks
    Two men say they’re Jesus, one of them must be wrong
    There’s a protest singer, he’s singing a protest song

    He says, “They wanna have a war, keep their factories
    They wanna have a war to keep us on our knees
    They wanna have a war to stop us buying Japanese
    They wanna have a war to stop industrial disease
    They’re pointing out the enemy to keep you deaf and blind
    They wanna sap your energy, incarcerate your mind

    Give ya “Rule Britannia”, gassy beer, page three
    Two weeks in España and Sunday striptease”
    Meanwhile, the first Jesus says “I’ll cure it soon
    Abolish Monday mornings and Friday afternoons”
    The other one’s out on hunger strike, he’s dying by degrees
    How come Jesus gets industrial disease?

    Anyone who has not seen the following will find it fascinating because it demonstrates that many of the fears that have come to the fore in recent times were fears of the 1950s and 1960s; industrial warfare and a surveillance state in which dissent was not tolerated.

    Russia says “Prologue to Third World War”: Kremlin Reacts to Security Guarantees for Ukraine”

    So I guess Pelosi and Schumer want a third world war, more or less now, and avoid the elections. Yeah, pretty much in line with what I thought, one reason or another, any reason will do.

    “Armenia Warns Allies Clashes Spiraling Toward War: Azerbaijan Has ‘Taken Territory’”

    NATO proxies, spreading the war. Oh and btw, since they’re down to sheep farmers, trained 4 weeks, NATO commanders are inside and running the war as well. It appears HIMAR was shelling the Zap nuke plant, which is directly and exclusively controlled by the U.S. Let me put that another way:

    The United States is officially shelling a live and running nuclear power plant last week with high-tech, long-range weapons.

    But Charles wants his shoelaces ironed, so no time for that on the front page.

    Meanwhile if nuking Europe and starting two wars doesn’t work, war at home:

    Dem Rep. Says “We Gotta Kill” MAGA “Extremists”

    Do we now? I thought we had judicial process and a rule of law. (P.S. top funders of MAGA candidates is the DNC. Should they attack themselves? They are funding extremists. Maybe the top funder.)

    US Considers Sanctions on China to Deter Taiwan Attack”

    They definitely will if we get weak enough. Our sanctions already don’t mean anything, and when weaker would mean less. Rephrasing: so let me get this straight: we’re going to start a Civil War by shooting half the country, and China’s going to see us as super-strong and not weak and distracted at all.

    Top of empire, top of mountain: you have to pick a path down. You can’t take all the paths, and you can’t take none of them. You have to choose one.

    I have a bad feeling this week.

    “Mysterious Increase in Deaths Seen across Europe”

    By every Putin oil executive. Eight so far. What do you think he will do if NATO sends NATO planes, NATO pilots, bombs journalist daughters, and assassinate all leaders while they’re out living lives? Nothing? Just say “Oh well, I guess no one is safe in Russia now?” No, he’s going to tsunami NY harbor and deny it.

    Knock it off.

    The real energy transition is a reduction in energy use. This will never happen VOLUNTARILY”

    That essentially means it will happen VIOLENTLY. As in: Against their will.

    This is Washington’s diabolical plan to destroy what was previously called the common European space.”

    Yes, it seems confirmed the CIA was in the room as the many meetings creating the EU took place. I have never completely understood this, but a project so large can’t be hidden and there are many factions and approaches. CIA center = a unified EU would be a better, cheaper balwark against the USSR…and much, much easier to control. Second tier: we can install a critical and fatal flaw into it by being in the room, then exploit it later or perhaps as extortion. Armstrong says they did this with united bonds, but also failing every referendum, completely anti-democratic, and unable to function on a constant unanimous treaty basis. Then we have Tier 2 transfers North to South. It’s a mess and they think adding fascism will make LESS resistance, not more. Whut?

    If so, D.C. booked it right. Or more Luongo’s plan: not that #1 and #2 are wrong, but that sub factions know it’s Europe and “Davos” that is our real enemy, uniting Europe for yet another go at re-colonizing former colonies like us. …I mean more colonized than already, with the Queen tampering in our elections and choosing our Presidents. So these guys, having no power, could only tip tiny, tiny balances, make the EU go a little too far, make them a little too much, which adds up to being off balance and losing. Judo style.

    So not that Moscow is wrong, and they don’t have all day to explain it, and it would be a top security risk if they revealed Moscow’s full knowledge of the matter. But this ties nicely into our White Hats and their as allies, trying to end the Empire and thus all dreams for world government. What did Trump say “The time for Globalists is over.”? Boom. Multipolar world? Boom. The future belongs to nations, nationalists? Who is Joe’s #1 enemy? Nationalists. In America. His own people. People who believe in law, limits, and government as written in our foundation. Now why is that if all the above is wrong?

    “The people’s republics and Russia never had enough men to defend a 1,000 km-long frontline. NATO’s entire intel capabilities noticed – and profited from it.”

    This is why “Land war in Asia” is different. There are never enough men, never can or will be. So Mongols sweep along the Steppes and push in and out huge territories. Okay, man to man, within sight and sound, 1,000km. How many men? 9,000 or so minimum, I guess. And 1,000km is only this part, area, not including back-end warehousing and supply. Yes, the idea for NATO was to pull the Russian army out of Russia and in here. There are not enough Russians as Ukraine is the size of 10 states, Michigan to Georgia, the size of France and Austria combined.

    Okay, but the reverse is true: There are not enough Ukrainians to hold 1,000km either. That’s why “Land war in Asia” is different. Therefore Russia can gather forces and push them right back out again. So unlike our usual wars, what determines “winning” in wars on the open plains?

    Escobar is on with Redacted, where NATO says “This is the largest offensive since the end of WWII”! Yes, they are almost certainly correct. What was that offensive? The Battle of the Bulge. Where Germany, depleted, lacking men, made a last, desperate all-in stand to punch a hole in the Allied lines and rout them. Sound familiar? Yeah, Nazis totally lost that time too.

    So literally NATO is referring to losing, and losing using this exact same tactic. Because: Losing losers who lose. Zealots with no sense, and no history. Propaganda and lies.

    As far as I can tell, Putin is correct. They don’t have to up to war status. Why bother? Things held and they have them surrounded with no supply lines and no operational trains.

    Russia thinks in Land war in Asia terms, and their boring, methodical meat-grinder ways held with boring, methodical lack of panic, and now the lines Ukraine has to prosecute are 1,000km longer.

    Let me get this straight: Ukraine didn’t have enough men to hold the front line and were falling back each day, but they have enough men to rush into a 300km vacuum and hold it when surrounded? Yes, this can work if you have limitless men behind you to throw into the hole you made, and limitless guns, jeeps, tanks, and limitless trains to move them. That’s what the Allies did in WWII where the U.S. could fill ships faster than Germany could make torpedoes to sink them. But Ukraine does NOT have that. NATO didn’t have it, and what they did have, they openly refused to provide at all – as Ukie told them, they need “every tank in Europe” or they lose. That’s a “Land war in Asia”.

    The Reich fielded some ten MILLION troops, and stole half of everything in Europe to throw at them: food, trains, factories. The Allies landed at D-Day in a vacuum. Germany LOST 5 MILLION men in battle outright, and the Russians 10 million.

    “The Eastern Front was the largest and bloodiest theatre of World War II. It is generally accepted as being the deadliest conflict in human history, with over 30 million killed as a result.[3] The German armed forces suffered 80% of its military deaths in the Eastern Front.[112] It involved more land combat than all other World War II theatres combined”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Front_(World_War_II)

    I don’t think we understand what’s going on safe in a tiny stone house in Notting Hill, anymore than a frog can understand the ocean. If you’ve driven from Ohio to Sacramento with only war and military planning on your mind, maybe.

    Never fight a land war in Asia. Europe. That message is for you.

    “ Ukraine Has Put World on Brink of ‘Nuclear Catastrophe’ – Moscow (RT)

    Russia is shelling themselves again. Inside their own base. Using HIMARs. That’s the only explanation!

    ““The European Commission has reportedly backpedaled on the gas price cap and is currently working on a mechanism to tax the windfall profits of energy companies.”

    Whiskey Tango? So they “Bail out” the companies so they can “Windfall profit” them? WTF kind of circle-jerk is this?

    ““..as much as 70% of the funding due between 2021 and 2027 may be withheld from Hungary owing to non-compliance..”

    • EU May Punish Hungary (RT)”

    They’re going to “Punish Hungary”, a nation with gas, heat and food, while the EU sits in the dark without supper. Okay then! If that’s the kind of punishments you have, sign me up! Give me a dozen!

    We’re gonna take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing off with Iran.”

    “We’re an Empire now, and we create reality”. How’s that going for you? I see “Syria” is #2. Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan all exist and Iran is stronger than ever. #Reality. #Logos. PR doesn’t win a war. Blowing air out your mouth-holes doesn’t get things done, you glue-munching morons.

    The word “Overshoot” is everywhere. Now the gentleman at top has defined it: the overuse of RESOURCES. However, everyone else uses it as “The overabundance of PEOPLE.” So Overshoot is a problem? The only possible answer is: KILL PEOPLE. A lot of them. Billions. The only possible, the only logical, the only essential solution to support the right and all things good and holy in the world. KILL PEOPLE. Everyone you find. Indiscriminately. There are so many we needn’t sort them out until after the first 1-2 billion at least.

    This is one of those “If I can make you accept a bad assumption” moments.

    Newsflash: You might notice we’re feeding all 8B right now, today. We’re wasting half of all the food in the U.S. while doing it. We paved most of our arable land and put the rest into lawns and still have no problem feeding people. Holland is a nation the size of Ohio and exports more than the entire midwest perhaps.

    What overshoot are you talking about, exactly? Oil overshoot? Russia will give us enough oil to go another 40-100 years. Iran has more. We refuse to drill both coasts and have a lease stop on the Gulf, while known oil in the arctic is off-limits. Leviathan and other nation-sized gas fields were just opened up in Lebanon. UAE is locked-in and trying, trying to sell their gas into Europe. We had a whole war about it you might remember.

    So not food at all, not oil/carbon at all. What overshoot? Too many Kardashians?

    Personally, I think we’re headed the wrong way and wasting most of what we have to make ourselves miserable. But that’s not overshoot, that’s being a dumb-ss.

    Clearly we could feed 16B people and they would all fit into Texas. (No offense Texas, not volunteering you). But this bold and careless lie about “Overshoot” exist for one reason: to make you think it’s okay, want to kill people, and find it simply inevitable. …That our overlords will become more powerful in proportion to every common man killed.

    We are “Fewer, John Wattenberg, 2005″ even before the recent genocides. So since we’re now shrinking anyway, why is everyone pro-murder again? Just your religion?

    9/11

    Not much about the 2 million people who died in the Middle East as a result of 9/11.

    In the mid-nineties there was a film called ‘The long kiss goodnight’. The plot was that the CIA were planning to create a terror attack to kill thousands in what they termed a ‘fundraiser’.

    9/11 seems like the same idea but was contracted out.

    What makes me suspicious is that when four aircraft were hijacked at the same time there was so little reaction. No fighters were scrambled to shadow the aircraft.

    When a hijacked aircraft hits a high profile target like the twin towers then it is obviously deliberate. The authorities had an hour to intercept the second aircraft using fighters, but they didn’t bother. The pentagon aircraft was even later but still was not intercepted. The fourth failed to reach its target [Whitehouse?] probably due to action by the passengers.

    It is this inaction which makes me suspicious. Certainly it provided an excuse for punitive wars in the middle east and the setting up of a police state in the US.

    “NEW YORK — A veteran NYPD captain died of a 9/11-related illness on the 21st anniversary of the terrorist strikes Sunday, according to her union.

    “Capt. Janelle Sanders died of an unspecified ailment, the Captains Endowment Association said in a tweet.

    “We will never forget the brave men and women who lost their lives twenty-one years ago on this sad day,” the organization said. “Today, we lost active Captain Janelle Sanders due to 9/11 illness. May she rest in peace.”

    @afewknowthetruth: “The energy ‘transition’ graphic and text are spot on.”

    I agree, especially with respect to climate change. Just for starters, a little high school math is enough to show that “renewables” like solar and wind can’t even come close to replacing today’s global energy demand—not even the existing electrical portion of that. My own guess is that maybe 5-10% of that is the absolute best that can be expected.

    Not only that, but the “harvesters” of the so-called “renewables” are themselves non-renewable. (In fact, Tim Watkins refers to them as “non-renewable renewable energy harvesters”.)

    So what seems most likely is that the push for “renewables” is just a way to prolong the agony of our exit from the Industrial Age by giving us access to a little bit of power from a source other than combustibles for a few extra years. And in the process of manufacturing this, shifting yet more wealth to those that already have too much.

    The only good news here is that possibly there won’t be enough energy around to implement the grand plans for 4IR, digital currencies, and the all-encompassing surveillance grid that certain people dream of. That all takes a lot of energy, and will not quite be compatible with our newly medieval lifestyles.

    “US Considers Sanctions on China to Deter Taiwan Attack”

    The Ukraine conflict is being used (was invented?) by the globalists as the excuse for the sanctions that put Western Europe on a permanent energy diet and will de-industrialize it. Obviously (see Art Berman graphic above) people could never be forced to choke it down unless first given a “reason”.

    US sanctions against China would complete the setup, and the blowback will probably make the Russia sanctions blowback look tame by comparison.

    No! There is not ‘we’!

    What industrial humans have been doing for the past 200 years has been converting prairies, forests and jungles into monoculture plantations, killing everything in the way -plants, animals, soil biomass…

    And for the past 150 years industrial humans have been using fossil-fuel-powered machines to rip up soil, to spread ingredients for forcing plants to grow faster [stolen were from distant lands]. And they have been sucking great aquifers -such as the Ogalala- dry. Okay not completely dry yet. Just lowering the water table every year, so the sucking systems have to go a little deeper every year. (A bit like the ‘plan’ to keep Las Vegas from collapsing immediately by installing deeper ‘straws’ into Lake Mead.)

    And for the past 60 years, instead of using sailing vessels, looters and polluters have been using industrial reaping machines have been extracting humoungous quantities of life from the seas and the oceans via the use of diesel engines. To the point of collapse of most large fish species and many intermediate species. Let’s not mention the whales that industrial humans slaughtered by the megatonne until the whales learned to avoid industrial humans.

    Why was that? Because industrial humans had run short of candles and wanted whale oil for their lamps.

    Whales had it quite good for about 50 years, until industrial humans came after them with diesel powered slaughter ships, armed with high-powered harpoon launchers that could fire deadly weapons at them ten times further than any Moby Dick harpooner. No challnge really. Just aim, fire, haul in the meat and oil, put it through a mechanical slicer, can or bottle the useful stuff and throw the rest of that sentient being back into the ocean.

    So when the imdusrrialised slaughter had gone too far and there were only a few hundred of the magnificent creatures left, ‘We’ institute a ‘Save the Whales’ campaign. Only, like everyting else, it’s all PR, and we continue to slaughter them. And make their home inhospitable to them via acidification of the oceans and collisions with fast moving ships.

    Why so many ships? Because ‘we’ have to shift humungous quantities of ‘food’ from monoculture plantation producers to consumers halfway round the planet. Or feed fish and crustaceans trapped in concrete boxes with grains, so that humans can eat the fish and crustaceans. The concrete boxes are aerated using electricity, of course -much of it generated by burning fossil fuels.

    And the reason there are only 15,000 orang utans left (of an inititial population of half a million) is because industrial humans have chopped down most of the jungles in SE Asia to make way for monoculture palm oil plantations. So ‘we’ can make oil to send to people halfway round the world using yet more diesel. Biofules being too expensive to burn in engines.

    As Professor Albert Bartlett noted 30 years ago: ‘”Industrtial agriculture is a system for converting oil into food.”

    And global extraction of oil went into terminal decline in 2019.

    But there’s ‘no overshoot’.

    Many years ago, when the US was engaged in its oil-stealing adventures in Iraq, I was in communication with an American who ‘concerned’.

    I quipped: ‘What America needs to do is kill as many Iraqis as possible, But they need to leave the oil in the ground’.

    We all knew that -leaving oil in the ground- wasn’t going to happen. But the US military did manage to kill around a million Iraqis before moving on to the next [human] target.

    How many barrels of oil are the US military stealing from Syria at the moment to keep those combine harvesters running? I believe it’s around 60,000 barrels a day.

    That demonstrates the level of desperation to keep the completely dysfunctional system going just a little longer.

    But there’s ‘no overshoot’.

    Dilemmas on both sides. This one keeps popping up. Russia committed ??% of its battalion groups by April. 5k to 80k (you choose) have been eliminated.

    On his Telegram channel, Kadyrov was calling for self mobilization. Such a plan could bring 85k troops to the battle.

    But hey, you got to fill the gap with something.

    Here is Soloyvov lamenting on the manpower issue.

    In Russia, general mobilization would require businesses to pay the soldiers salaries.

    ‘Plot
    By 2022,[3] the cumulative effects of overpopulation, pollution and an apparent climate catastrophe have caused severe worldwide shortages of food, water and housing. In New York City alone, there are 40 million people, and only the city’s elite can afford spacious apartments, clean water, and natural food. The homes of the elite are fortified, with private security and bodyguards for their tenants. Usually, they include concubines (who are referred to as “furniture” and serve the tenants as slaves). The poor live in squalor, haul water from communal spigots, and eat highly processed wafers: Soylent Red, Soylent Yellow, and the latest product, far more flavorful and nutritious, Soylent Green.’

    Regarding ‘Bullshit stories about Putin is in bad health”.
    Putin himself claims to have had four jabs of the Russian version of Astra Zeneca so it is vey possible that he has been suffering from the effects of the spike protein. Back at the last celebration of WW2 victory he looked , to me to be very puffy in the face and not his usual self and friends who were watching it with me agreed. Also all fax haters but Putin lovers , remember Putin was all in on the vax , mandates , lockdowns and tracking aps. Russian big Pharma did a deal with Oxford and one of the big banks was in control and took profits from the distribution of the first ten million shots.
    Regarding Russia winning folk claim that is is inevitable but I never hear what the end result , the “win” looks like on the ground.
    Every scenario I run , excepting a complete capitulation by NATO , leaves Russia in a world of hurt. Does any one have a realistic description of how Russia wins?

    @Afewknowthetruth regarding disrespect to our good Dr D

    I warned you once. This is the second and last warning. If you want to go on attempting to undermine this conversation “under the radar” then you must keep your trolling ass on the other side of the line. One more offense that I bother to notice and you will receive the respect that you deserve, and being publicly humiliated is about the best you could hope for.

    it already did. Europe is imploding (rebooting fossil fuels and scrambling to walk back the claim that 100% green energy is the future), the EU is fracturing (with financial knuckle-rapping of Hungary & Poland on deck now), and China/India/et al are starting to buy/sell petro without the “reserve currency.” Idk … what does winning look like?

    I enjoy the posts of Dr D, but he’s not always accurate. if you, D Benton Smith, are referring to the “overshoot” post, you are all wet. Of course the human population has gone into overshoot, for the reasons outlined above. I don’t see any trolling here, but I’m assuming you are referring to the ‘overshoot’ post. I don’t see Afewknowthetruth as a troll. It would be helpful to me if people frankly name that which they allude to.

    I too enjoy Dr D’s posts, very much in fact, and agree with his perspective on the matter of alleged “overshoot” (it’s a pseudo-scientific buzz word, not a legitimate . . . or even logical . . . real term). However, that wasn’t why I slapped AFKTT on the wrist. My criticism concerned his manners and the issue of maintaining acceptable levels of respect here on TAE.

    I don’t care that AFKTT and Redneck are trolls. Fine with me that they say anything they want. I don’t care what they think (and I use the term loosely) about me or anyone or any thing. Their sad lies just present fresh opportunities to repeat truths. I do however care that their Crayola-Brain scribbling attempts at rational thought stay “inside the lines” well enough that earnest conversations can still take place here.

    In other words, there are certain limits. AFKTT went out of bounds bad mouthing one of our best commentators, so I slapped him with a Yellow Card. I’ll leave it at that if he knocks it off.

    Since we’re on the topic of alleged population “overshoot” (amongst other things) I would point out that if it were not for so-called population “overshoot” (called so by wannabe “experts”) then any of us lucky enough to be alive today would be cyanobacterium rather than oxygen breathing human beings.

    If those anaerobic little bacteria had not “overshot” their population into extinction by releasing so much free oxygen into the atmosphere that they killed themselves off, then none of us oxygen breathers would ever have happened.

    Life is life. It does its thing to the music of a drummer who remains elusively above our full comprehension. To say that life, ANY AND ALL LIFE could exist in too great of a quantity is exhibition of a degree of hubris that is truly breathtaking.

    Maybe we are yeast in a beer barrel, and the brew will not be finished until we are. Who knows? But I can point to some folks who most definitely do NOT know. They are the ones who think we should kill because their ignorance drives them to believe that there is too much life to suit their liking.

    Totally incapable of presenting any evidence, and apparently totally incapable of understanding the evidence that does exist and is presented here, the weaselly arsehole with the brain of walnut persists with ad hominem attacks.

    Also, apparently you are completely incapable of understanding very clearly delivered messages delivered in English, such as Fuck off, you weaselly arsehole. So, I suppose we must try other languages to drive home the point, DBS.

    Ne s’ tudo.

    Yes, you can run from the truth. You can hide from the truth. You can deny the truth. You can try to ignore it. But it’s going to get you in the end.

    So just for good measure, in case you still haven’t got it, every time you make an ad hominem attack, you will get a barrage,

    Fuck off, you slimy cunt, you bean-brain, you pathetic excuse for a human being with too much time and nowhere near enough ethics.

    And as for this piece of absurdity:

    ‘My criticism concerned his manners and the issue of maintaining acceptable levels of respect here on TAE.

    I suggest you look up the meaning of the word ‘respect’, since you clearly do not know its meaning.

    @Afewknowthetruth I must quote you because I just couldn’t subject my brain to paraphrasing such juvenile potty-mouth insults that are so lame that they actually do embarrass me on your behalf.

    You said, “Also, apparently you are completely incapable of understanding very clearly delivered messages delivered in English, such as Fuck off, you weaselly arsehole. So, I suppose we must try other languages to drive home the point, DBS.”

    Attaboy. I just knew that that knee would jerk if I smacked it well enough.

    Once again you presume and assume things that you have no way of knowing, and so no way of proving, and therefore little point in saying. For example, you accuse me of ad hominem attacks. To that charge I have two responses:

    #1) Don’t presume that I regard you as much of a hominem.
    #2) Your manners have not improved very much.

    Have you given much thought to the effect that your litany of childish insults has on the people who read them? Do you suppose they increase or decrease the respect that others will give to your thoughts and words? If you are here to sway peoples’ thinking shouldn’t you pay better attention to the direction your speech sways them? I don’t think you picked up any new fans with that silly diatribe.

    Also, have you given much thought to the fact that by engaging in verbal combat with me (and losing badly) you are thereby neglecting your Trollish duties? No one is distracted. No one is deceived into trusting your motives. And no one is moved to agree with your homicidal NWO Eugenicist malarkey about there being so many people that de-population is a sane “solution” rather than an evil crime.

    I took to skipping past your comments when I realised you were just a pompous fool who didn’t know shit from clay; basically full of yourself and having nothing to offer me, i.e. a waste of time.

    It is only when you make premediated attacks on truth that you garner my attention.

    Twenty years ago I realised that it was those who knew the least who argued the most: knowledgeable people say, “Of course.”

    I also recognised twenty years ago that those who cannot present any evidence for their opinions are frequently the most persistent arguers and perpetrators of ad hominem attacks. Devoid of any logical arguments, they ‘shoot the messenger’.

    This exactly what ‘the controllers’ -governments, city councils, district councils, regional councils etc.- do. Completely devoid of any evidence for their absurd claims, they refuse to answer questions and rig so-called hearings to ensure as little information as possible is presented. Basically they shoot the messenger. And they ignore whatever scientific evidence was presented and do exactly what they had planned to do before the so-called public consultation commenced.

    As anyone who has engaged with them knows, governments, city, councils, district councils and regional councils spend most of their time promulgating blatant lies and stamping on truth.

    The reason governments and their agents can get away with promulgating blatant lies is that the bulk of the populace is scientifically illiterate and financially illiterate. And ecologically illiterate. And the bulk of the populace do no research.

    So, it left to the one-in-ten-thousand to do the fighting. And sometimes we wonder why we bother. Frequently we wonder why we bother.

    As I said to the local mafia-without-guns (the district council) and the incompetent fools at the next layer of deceit and crime (regional council): “This is your final warning. I won’t be back because the [economic-financial-energetic] ‘tsunami will hit within a year.”

    Being fuckwits and professional liars, they took no notice.

    ‘Interesting times’ (Chinese curse) just keep getting more ‘interesting’. By the hour now.
