Ayyadurai – First Amendment














I already saw a lot of articles about vaccine risks last night, before Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field on live TV. When you combine that collapse with the new Rasmussen poll out yesterday, that says “More Than 1-in-4 Think Someone They Know Died From COVID-19 Vaccines”, and “49% of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths..”, we may be looking at an awakening. A large part of that 49% now think they know what happened with Hamlin. Try cover that up.

“CPR was administered for 9 minutes. Normal is 3 to 5 minutes. After 10 minutes you’re basically dead.”

Damar Hamlin Is Not Expected To Make A Full Recovery (Kirsch)

Update 11:20pm: It was announced in the hospital parking lot that Hamlin is not expected to make a full recovery. Hamlin was vaccinated. The Buffalo Bills is a 100% vaccinated team. I also got a Twitter DM from someone who knows this for a fact who asked that I not disclose his identity. This is a shame since we know know, thanks to my readers, that there is no death benefit to the COVID vaccines. Update 7:39pm: This was called “unprecedented” on ESPN. Hamlin has been intubated and currently listed in critical condition. All the announcers said they’d never seen it in the NFL. This was a joint decision by both the NFL and the players to stop the game. This is unprecedented. One of my nurse friends wrote, “How often has a young healthy football player that didn’t take that hard of a hit had a heart attack or stroke.” CPR was administered for 9 minutes. Normal is 3 to 5 minutes. After 10 minutes you’re basically dead.

McCullough said that we will not know for 24 hours whether he will bounce back. He could make a full recovery. Dr. Peter McCullough just wrote me (7:54pm): “I watched the play live both as a fan and a cardiologist and I saw blunt neck and chest trauma, a brief recovery after the tackle and then a classic cardiac arrest. I have communicated to one of the most experienced trainers in the world and we agree that it was a cardiac arrest in the setting of a big surge of adrenalin. If Damar Hamlin indeed took one of the COVID-19 vaccines, then subclinical vaccine-induced myocarditis must be considered in the differential diagnosis. We have been told he was successfully defibrillated on the field and has been intubated and is not spontaneously breathing which is consistent with anoxic encephalopathy. The nation prays for his complete recovery.”

Peter got it right…. 3 hours after he said that, the Buffalo Bills confirmed he was correct: Note that McCullough originally speculated that the injury that Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was due to commotio cordis (a phenomenon in which a sudden blunt impact to the chest causes sudden death in the absence of cardiac damage). The time delay from the hit until he collapsed is expected in commotio cordis. Peter believes that the ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation could have been set up by the vaccine if he took it. Hamlin was shocked back to rhythm. He now has anoxic encephalopathy. He’s in critical condition at the hospital. If you think the vaccines are safe, this article is very troubling. Therefore, it is viewed as “inappropriate.” If you think the vaccines are not safe, this article is confirming and people have no objection.

Interesting, isn’t it? It now appears that, if Hamlin was vaccinated (which we all believe is highly likely but we don’t have the evidence to say he was), the vaccine likely played a very major role in his injury until proven otherwise. However, I believe it is highly unlikely that there will be a proper autopsy where they examine Damar Hamlin’s heart tissue similar to what they did in the Schwab study. In America, we do not want to know what kills people. This is why there are virtually never any autopsies after someone dies post-vaccine, even if they die less than 24 hours after the jab. So deaths like this will continue because people don’t want to upset the government safe and effective narrative.

The Rasmussen survey is here. Since it is a endless litany of numbers and percentages, I go with a write-up by the Substack A Midwestern Doctor.

“49% of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely”.

The American Public is Extremely Worried About the Vaccines (MWD)

Although Rasmussen typically makes their polls be behind a paywall (since they have to stay in business), they felt compelled to make this one be publicly available. This poll evaluated 1000 American adults, of whom 71% reported being vaccinated. The results Rasmussen found were as follows:

The results of each of these questions have profound implications for the general public losing its trust in the mainstream narrative. The second is particularly important: 28% know someone directly they believe died from a vaccine. Even if the correlation is false (although I believe it is the opposite as many of the deaths are not recognized), 28% of the population believing the government and every authority they were raised their life to trust would push something this dangerous onto them shatters the institutional trust our entire society is built upon. Put differently, this is not a problem more propaganda can solve or half-hearted pseudo-apologies like Emily Oster’s disingenuous plea for amnesty or Peter Hotez’s “apology” that followed him being called out for his egregious conduct with the vaccines.

At this point in time, the major challenge our movement is facing is bridging the gap from the evidence of harm (there is far more than enough data to end this program) to persuading the public that this data matters and the vaccines need to be pulled. This is why Rasmussen’s survey results so important, as they illustrate that gap is beginning to be overcome. When it comes to ending these mandates, how the vaccines are perceived by the public is the most important thing and what politicians will listen to. [..] One of the interesting things about today’s poll was how each demographic answered:

For example, when asked if they knew someone who they suspected had died from the vaccine, 33% of Democrats said yes, while 26% of both Republicans and those who were not affiliated with either party said yes. Rasmussen argues this (along with many other demographic response rates) suggests the poll’s results were valid, and explained this result being due Democrats, while being less likely to want to acknowledge a vaccine injury, likely knowing far more people who were vaccinated, and thus being exposed to a higher rate of deaths.

Again, let’s hope Florida stays the course.

DeSantis: We’re Suing Big Pharma for Killing Americans With COVID Shots (NP)

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is suing Pfizer and Moderna for killing millions of Americans with their toxic mRNA jabs. “I think people want the truth that I think people want accountability. You need to have a thorough investigation into what happened with the shots,” DeSantis told a crowd earlier in December. “I promise to hold these manufacturers accountable for this mRNA [shot] because they said there were no side effects and we know that there have been a lot.” Naturalnews.com reports: Back in October, Florida Surgeon General Joseph A. Ladapo recommended against the use of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for males aged 18 to 39. His recommendation was based on a study that found an 84 percent increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males aged 18 to 39 within 28 days of vaccination.

“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health,” Ladapo said. “Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians.” DeSantis has banned strict vaccine mandates in schools and businesses back in November 2021 to make sure people continued to earn a living and have protections at their place of employment. He also emphasized that parents should be able to direct the upbringing of their kids, especially when it came to dealing with the pandemic.

“The plain truth is COVID shots have led to horrifying effects, such as myocarditis, blood clots, additional injuries and sudden deaths,” Patrick Tims of NaturalHealth365 wrote. “The mainstream media in the United States and elsewhere will never admit it, yet the truth is the vast majority of people would have enjoyed better health outcomes had they avoided the mRNA shots altogether.”

“My goal is to illustrate the complete breakdown of the previously known to be rigorous ethical drug development process..”

Did Pfizer Perform Safety Testing for mRNA Vaccine in Preclinical Studies? (SL)

The cursory nature of the entire preclinical program for mRNA injections conducted by Pfizer can be briefly summarized as “we did not find any safety signals because we did not look for them”. The omissions of standard safety studies and glaring scientific dishonesty in the studies that were performed are so obvious that they cannot be attributed to the incompetence of the manufacturers and regulators. Rather, the questions of fraud and willful negligence should be raised.

The focus of my review was the scope and adequacy of the program of non-clinical assessment for a novel gene therapy “vaccine” with a brief discussion of relevant regulatory frameworks. I did not dive deeply into the results of specific animal studies. My goal is to illustrate the complete breakdown of the previously known to be rigorous ethical drug development process, as well as the shocking negligence on the part of the regulatory agencies that are supposed to keep the pharmaceutical manufacturers honest. It turns out that both the regulators and the manufacturers were highly dishonest and pushed an entirely novel technology and product on millions of people without a single well designed toxicology assessment.

In summary, I have identified the following:

Finding 1: Pfizer’s program did not include a comprehensive end-to-end test of all components as well as the final chemical entity of the mRNA product. The studies included in the FDA approval package were for a variety of versions of the product with no comparability assessments, thus no comprehensive assessment of the product safety can be made.

Finding 2: The toxicity/safety pharmacology of the Covid 19 vaccine’s active ingredient (mRNA BNT162b2) was never evaluated!

Finding 3: Pfizer claimed absence of potential for “vaccine-elicited disease enhancement” based on studies of an animals that did not get sick from Sars-Cov-2.

Finding 4: CDC, FDA and Pfizer lied about “vaccine staying in the injection site” – the injected substance is carried by the LNPs all over the body and into all organs.

Finding 5: Pfizer waived major categories of safety testing for their product altogether using self-serving interpretation of WHO recommendations from 2005.

Finding 6: Both FDA and Pfizer knew about major toxicities associated with gene therapy class of medicines, and therefore cannot claim lack of anticipatory knowledge of these risks.

“..they KNOW they will eventually be caught. That’s not a concern for them because their goal of getting as many men, women, and children jabbed as many times as possible cannot be reversed by the truth coming out..”

Expect Three Things From Government to Cover Up Vaxx-Weakened Immunity (Rucker)

After two years of completely controlling the Covid “vaccine” narrative and gaslighting the people into thinking they were “safe and effective,” an avalanche of news has been coming out lately that is prompting more people to ask questions. While most “normies” are still in the dark because they’re getting their news from corporate media, a small but growing number of them are waking up to the fact that they’ve been conned. While there’s still a huge leap to be made between getting people to ask questions and making them believe this is a worldwide depopulation and control agenda, the interim goal of getting them to stop getting more jabs is a worthy accomplishment. This is why we post articles and do videos on a constant basis to give people the ammunition they need to stir more of the masses to enlightenment. We need to hand out as many “vaccine red pills” as we can.

Unfortunately, the powers-that-be are aware they’re losing bits of control over the narrative so we fully expect them to fight back tooth-and-nail in 2023. They will continue to use propaganda and censorship through corporate media and Big Tech, but they realize even in those controlled venues they have challenges. Therefore, they are in the process of engaging in three variations of their current strategy to keep the con going as long as possible. It’s important to note that they KNOW they will eventually be caught. That’s not a concern for them because their goal of getting as many men, women, and children jabbed as many times as possible cannot be reversed by the truth coming out. Just because someone becomes aware that the jabs are harming them doesn’t mean they can go get themselves unjabbed. The powers-that-be know they cannot hide the truth forever, so they are working to subvert the truth and distort it in ways that will continue to serve their goals even after the masses finally wake up.

The first step is already happening. Rather than deny that people’s immune systems are weakening and many are dying suddenly with no viable explanation, they’re acknowledging the deaths but offering alternative reasons.. For example, the American Heart Association released a “study” last August that claimed increased cases of Myocarditis in children is due to Covid-19 itself, not the vaccines. It’s an extremely dishonest report from the AHA for multiple reasons, not the least of which is that if someone is jabbed AND had Covid, those Myocarditis cases are counted as caused by Covid. Then, there’s the fact that they do not count Myocarditis cases that were discovered more than 28-days after getting jabbed.

“..the study found vector DNA in the sciatic nerves, bone marrow, livers, lungs, and spleens of the mice following vaccination.”

ICAN Obtains Disturbing Information About AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccine (ICAN)

AstraZeneca study finds vector DNA in the sciatic nerve, bone marrow, liver, lungs, and spleen of vaccinated mice. Because AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine is not licensed in the United States, all documents within the FDA’s possession concerning this vaccine are exempt from disclosure. This means that anyone who received an AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine cannot – and might not ever be able to – access any of the data concerning the vaccine from the US government. Not satisfied by this complete lack of transparency, ICAN, through its attorneys, submitted an information request to the United Kingdom’s FDA equivalent – the Medicines and Healthcare Products Registry Agency (MHRA) — in April 2022 seeking information relating to its authorization of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, as well as that relating to its authorization of the Janssen, Moderna, and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines.

MHRA’s initial response was to threaten to deny ICAN’s request but, after ICAN pushed back and, in the case of the AstraZeneca vaccine, narrowed the scope of the request to seven specific items related to safety testing, MHRA dropped its objection. MHRA recently provided 166 pages of records containing the studies MHRA relied on to authorize AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine. One of these studies investigated biodistribution of the AstraZeneca vaccine, meaning where it goes in the body after injection, in mice. This study revealed that the viral vector DNA did not remain localized in the injection site but instead migrated to other organs. Disturbingly, the study found vector DNA in the sciatic nerves, bone marrow, livers, lungs, and spleens of the mice following vaccination.

The study documents further revealed that, in early 2021, AstraZeneca was forced to amend its data sheet for the vaccine after concluding that there may have been a causal association between the vaccine and serious hypersensitivity including anaphylaxis. Another perhaps unsurprising revelation was the inclusion of disclaimer that a number of vulnerable populations, such as pregnant and lactating women and immunocompromised persons, were excluded from pre-market human safety studies. In its Marketing Authorization Application, AstraZeneca stated that because these populations were excluded from the studies, the safety of the vaccine in these groups was unknown. This also led the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) to recommend against the AstraZeneca vaccine for pregnant women – a sentiment that was echoed in the UK’s vaccination schedule guide, commonly referred to as the “Green Book.”

Covid is not the concern, the vaccines are. And Israel is the test lab for those.

Israel to Declare Covid Pandemic Over, Downgrade It to Flu Status (YW)

Israel will officially declare the Covid-19 pandemic over next month and downgrade the country’s handling of the virus to that of the flu as of January 18th, according to reports. Israel’s Home Front Command had been shouldering the responsibility for all Covid-related treatment and testing since the virus first became a major health concern in the country, but those responsibilities will now be shifted to the civilian health system. On the last day of January, Covid will officially be downgraded to flu status, the pandemic control center will be shuttered, and Covid patients will no longer be required to isolate themselves.

“We’re hoping that our health care system can cope with these winter infections, including Covid,” Professor Cyrille Cohen, a member of the Health Ministry’s advisory board, told i24News. Once the winter is over, the Health Ministry hopes and expects that the virus will be endemic in the country, with infections coming at a regular rate, rather than in waves – making it far more bearable. “We are more in a scenario where we are behaving like any other viral disease in the winter,” Cohen added.

Rogan O’Handley @DC_Draino: “Remember when Biden got the Ukrainian prosecutor fired for investigating Hunter/Burisma? Well on Dec. 27 the USVI AG filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan for helping Jeffrey Epstein. Biden flew to USVI & the AG was fired days later.”

Virgin Islands AG Loses Her Job Days After Suing JPMorgan Over Epstein (L&C)

Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George lost her job after suing JPMorgan Chase in connection with her Jeffrey Epstein investigation. The Virgin Islands top prosecutor who reached a more than $105 million settlement with Jeffrey Epstein’s estate has lost her job days after suing JPMorgan Chase in connection with her probe. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, accused the bank of having “facilitated, sustained, and concealed” Epstein’s human trafficking network. On Dec. 27, then-Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George filed a blistering and heavily redacted 30-page lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase.

“JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint, and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank,” the lawsuit alleged. “These decisions were advocated and approved at the senior levels of JP Morgan, including by the former chief executive of its asset management division and investment bank, whose inappropriate relationship with Epstein should have been evident to the bank. Indeed, it was only after Epstein’s death that JP Morgan belatedly complied with federal banking regulations regarding Epstein’s accounts.”

[..] Days after the AG’s filing of the lawsuit — on New Year’s Eve — George was removed from her post. Local news outlets in the Virgin Islands reported that the attorney general had not informed the territory’s Gov. Albert Bryan about her impending enforcement action. [..] The development was first reported by The Virgin Islands Consortium, citing anonymous sources. Bryan subsequently confirmed George’s termination — without providing an explanation for it — in a statement sent to multiple news outlet. “I relieved Denise George of her duties as attorney general this weekend,” Bryan wrote in a statement sent to Law&Crime. “I thank her for her service to the people of the territory during the past four years as attorney general and wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

“Berlin will continue to refrain from any “ill-considered unilateral moves..”

German MP Warns Against ‘Unimaginable Escalation’ (RT)

Berlin has no plans to send modern Western-made tanks to Ukraine, as the risks are too high, a German lawmaker said on Monday. Such a move could make NATO a direct party to the conflict between Moscow and Kiev and lead to an escalation, Michael Mueller told Germany’s ARD broadcaster. Berlin will continue to refrain from any “ill-considered unilateral moves,” Mueller, who is a member of the German Bundestag’s Foreign Policy Committee, told ARD’s Morganmagazin show. “We would only deliver such weapons in coordination with our NATO partners,” he said, adding that the military bloc wants to avoid becoming a direct party to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“That would be in the interests of all of us… If NATO became a direct war party against Russia, it would be an escalation that none of us want to imagine,” Mueller, a member of Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s Social Democratic Party (SPD), warned. No other nations who possess “comparable” military hardware – including the US and France – have supplied them to Ukraine, Mueller pointed out, adding that those countries appear to share Germany’s concerns. The lawmaker also said that dialogue with Russia should be maintained. “There should always be an offer to talk,” he argued, criticizing his party’s coalition partners – the Greens and the Free Democrats – for failing to understand that.

Mueller said Chancellor Scholz is now the only leader who continues to seek such contacts, adding that the Foreign Ministry should also look for options for dialogue. Scholz has previously repeatedly said that resolving the conflict between Russia and Ukraine would be much harder without dialogue with Moscow. Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, on the contrary, has taken a staunch anti-Russia position, vowing to ramp up sanctions against Moscow and stating that “normal relations” with the Kremlin are out of the question.

“Between February and May, it is likely that both parties will realize “that they are getting stuck..”

I don’t think so. Not both parties.

Ex-NATO General Predicts Ukraine Ceasefire (RT)

A senior German Army officer and former Commander of Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum, General Hans-Lothar Domröse, has predicted that the Russia-Ukraine conflict will run into a stalemate and some sort of a ceasefire will be reached by summer. “I expect a standstill in early summer,” Domröse told the newspapers of the German Funke media group on Sunday, arguing that by such time, both sides will feel that continued fighting is “no longer of any use.” Between February and May, it is likely that both parties will realize “that they are getting stuck,” the former general said, adding that this will be the moment to begin ceasefire negotiations. “We will have a truce sometime in 2023,” Domröse predicted, cautioning that this would not mean an immediate lasting peace.

“A ceasefire means: We stop shooting,” he said, but negotiations are “likely to take a long time.” Regarding the current state of the conflict, Domröse said that Russia has the advantage of having “more tanks and more missiles,” while Kiev is “absolutely dependent” on Western arms supplies. “It’s hard for me to imagine Ukraine regaining [the Russian-held territories] completely – even if the West supplies the heavy weapons that are required, especially tanks and artillery,” he added. Since the start of Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine last February, Germany, along with most other Western nations, has been supplying Ukraine with weapons. However, Chancellor Olaf Scholz has been reluctant to supply Leopard 2 battle tanks to Kiev, arguing that since no other nation has yet sent such modern weaponry, Germany should not blaze a trail.

The general claimed that if “we take our responsibility seriously, we must provide [Kiev] with the heavy weapons” before its stockpiles run dry, because it could take well over a month from the government’s decision to have Leopard 2 tanks on the ground in Ukraine. “At some point Ukraine will have lost its last tank, then it will need supplies. And at some point there will be a ceasefire, then Ukraine will also need further support and weapons,” Domröse said. “It is high time that the European countries that have Leopard tanks now form a coalition of the willing and deliver together in a coordinated manner.” Moscow has consistently argued that Western weapons deliveries to Ukraine only serve to prolong the conflict. It has also warned that NATO member states are getting increasingly involved in the hostilities, which could potentially lead to an all-out military confrontation between the bloc and Russia.

The general acknowledged that the only way to end the conflict is through a negotiated agreement acceptable to both sides, suggesting that a possible solution could be for Zelensky to waive Kiev’s demand to immediately integrate Crimea into Ukraine and instead agree to a “transition period” of 50 years. However, the Kremlin previously called such proposals a non-starter, insisting that if Ukraine wants peace it should take into account “the new realities,” referring to the four former Ukrainian regions that voted to join Russia last fall, after Crimea did the same in 2014 following a coup in Kiev.

The only question in approval rating is the Duma.

Putin’s Approval Rating Ends 2022 At 81% (BNE)

If anything, support and trust in Russian President Vladimir Putin has increased since the war in Ukraine started at the end of February. Putin’s personal popularity ranking stood at 83% in March (chart), with 15% holding an unfavourable opinion of the president and 2% unsure, and stayed at that level until August, when things started to go wrong with the campaign in Ukraine. His popularity fell to 77% (21%, 2%) in September, according to the Levada Centre, after Ukraine’s spectacular Kharkiv counter-offensive began, but recovered to 79% in October and November to end the year in December at 81% (17%, 2%).

Overall, Putin has been enjoying the same “patriotic bump” that lifted his ratings following the annexation of Crimea in 2014. During the previous two years of 2020 and 2021 his ratings wavered between 61% and 69% but only crossed into the 70%-plus range as the rhetoric with the West went up a notch at the start of the crisis at the beginning of 2022.

Likewise, the approval of Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has also been given a lift. He polled a 60% (35%, 5%) approval rating in February but that leapt to 71% (23%, 6%) in March after the war started. Since then, his approval has hovered around 70% to finish the year in December with 71% (23%, 6%). The government also remain popular. In the pre-war years the government was benefiting from the improving economy. However, the shine came off in 2021, when its ratings fell to around 50%. When the war started their approval leapt from 55% (42%, 3%) in February to 70% (27%, 3%) in March. The governors ended the year in December with an approval rating of 68% (28%, 4%).

“You see, Putin can’t handle tough questions. Oops!! Wait a minute. We have breaking news. Turns out that Putin held a 48 minute press conference three days before Western Christmas..”

Is Western Propaganda Failing? (Larry Johnson)

As someone who played a minuscule role in a CIA information operation that targeted Soviet military operations in Afghanistan in November 1985, I feel somewhat qualified to comment on the mammoth propaganda campaign the United States and Europe have unleashed on Russia. I have never seen anything so perverse and so dishonest. Let me give you a recent example. Remember this recent “news” headline? “DUCKING FOR COVER: ‘SICKLY’ PUTIN CANCELS BIGGEST SPEECH OF HIS LIFE AS FIRST RUSSIAN STATE OF NATION SINCE INVASION IS MYSTERIOUSLY AXED” https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/20827701/putin-sick-russian-speech-ukraine-invasion This was courtesy of the UK’s SUN. Lacking any reliable source, The SUN opted for speculation: “VLADIMIR Putin has cancelled his state of the nation address fuelling rumours he is in hiding from the Russian people and could be in failing health. Putin’s spokesman finally confirmed the speech – which would be one of biggest in Vlad’s life – will not go ahead before the New Year. . . . It comes after the mad tyrant also cancelled his end of year press conference and his annual hockey game.”

Got it? Putin is either deathly ill — suffering from Parkinsons, cancer, Irritable Bowel, etc. — or deathly afraid of having to explain the ass whooping that Ukraine is delivering to Russia. You see, Putin can’t handle tough questions. Oops!! Wait a minute. We have breaking news. Turns out that Putin held a 48 minute press conference three days before Western Christmas (does this count as “end of the year”?): It would appear that Putin delights in trolling the Western pundits and media. Does Putin look like a man suffering from some devastating illness? Does he give off the vibe of a guy who cannot control his bowels and is called Mr. Poopy Pants behind his back? Joe Biden could not pull this off even if he consumed Zelensky’s weekly dose of cocaine. Putin is coherent and in command of facts.

It would be one thing if the Western propaganda effort was focused solely on ridiculing and trying to foment opposition inside Russia to Vladimir Putin. But it is not. Western propaganda is demonizing all things Russian — e.g., literature, art, chess, sports figures, and actors and actresses. This approach is not creating a reservoir of good will towards the West. Just the opposite. It is fortifying Russian nationalism and solidifying support for Putin.

“I hope it’s not too impertinent to suppose that the January 6 Riot was engineered by our government to embarrass and punish its political opponents..”

Questions and Answers (Kunstler)

Next Mr. Wray has to answer for the FBI’s infiltration of social media. How did the top lawyer at the FBI, Jim Baker, come to be employed as the right-hand to Twitter’s chief censor, Vijaya Gadde? How did all those former FBI agents land at the company along with Jim Baker, and what did Mr. Wray have to do with the FBI demands to censor news and persons on matters of critical national importance such as vaccine safety and election fraud? How did more than a hundred former federal agents land on Facebook, Google, and other platforms? How did Mr. Wray decide to shut down the avenues of the First Amendment to the Constitution?

Next up: Attorney General Merrick Garland. On what grounds are pre-trial January 6 Riot suspects being held in the decrepit DC federal lockup without bail on rinky-dink charges two years after the event? How does that square with American due process of law? What did he know about the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop and the evidence it contained? What is he doing about it? How did Mr. Garland happen to target for prosecution parents protesting school board policies on race and sexual matters? Of course, Mr. Garland is going to evade answering by using the ploy that all these questions “pertains to ongoing investigations.” Mr. Jordan had better hire a gutsy chief counsel with some brains to penetrate that bodyguard of lies.

If the Special Subcommittee on the January 6 Riot is disbanded, turn the matter over to the Andy Biggs’ Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security. Let’s hear from Nancy Pelosi’s staff as to why her office (of the Speaker) turned down offers from the Trump White House for national guard protection that day. Let’s also hear from the then-chief of the Capitol Police, Steven Sund, who resigned from that job two days later — in consternation or disgrace? Bring back Mr. Wray and Mr. Garland. How many federal agents were circulating in the crowd the night before and on the day of the January 6 riot? Why was one Ray Epps never indicted for his much-recorded incitements to enter the Capitol? Who opened the magnetically-locked doors from the inside of the building? Stuff like that. What was the decision process for not charging officer Michael Byrd in the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt?

I hope it’s not too impertinent to suppose that the January 6 Riot was engineered by our government to embarrass and punish its political opponents — taking advantage of the First Amendment “right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances,” which was what that crowd had come to do in Washington DC that day.

The only reason they can keep up this story is that the other side has been imprisoned and silenced.

Pentagon, FBI, DHS Failed On Jan. 6 – Former Capitol Police Chief (WaPo)

In a new firsthand account of the frantic efforts of Capitol Police officers to protect Congress and themselves from an armed mob on Jan. 6, 2021, the department’s former chief blames cascading government failures for allowing the brutal melee. The federal government’s multibillion-dollar security network, built after 9/11 to gather intelligence that could warn of a looming attack, provided no such shield on Jan. 6, former Capitol Police chief Steven A. Sund writes in a new book. The FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and even his own agency’s intelligence unit had been alerted weeks earlier to reams of chilling chatter about right-wing extremists arming for an attack on the Capitol that day, Sund says, but didn’t take the basic steps to assess those plots or sound an alarm. Senior military leaders, citing political or tactical worries, delayed sending help.

And, Sund warns in “Courage Under Fire,” it could easily happen again. Many of the factors that left the Capitol vulnerable remain unfixed, he said. The Washington Post obtained an advance copy of the book, which will be published Tuesday. In his account, Sund describes his shock at the battle that unfolded as an estimated 10,000 protesters inflamed by President Donald Trump’s rally earlier in the day broke through police lines and punched, stabbed and pepper-sprayed officers, outnumbering them “58 to 1.” Sund said his shock shifted to agony as he unsuccessfully begged military generals for National Guard reinforcements. Though they delayed sending help until it was too late for Sund’s overrun corps, he says that he later discovered that the Pentagon had rushed to send security teams to protect military officials’ homes in Washington, none of which were under attack.

Sund reserves his greatest outrage for those Pentagon leaders, recounting a conference call he had with two generals about 2:35 p.m., 20 minutes after rioters had broken into the Capitol and as Vice President Mike Pence and other lawmakers scurried to hiding places. Sund writes that Lt. Gen. Walter Piatt told him he didn’t like the optics of sending uniformed Guard troops to the Capitol but could allow them to replace police officers at roadside checkpoints. Listening incredulously and trying to explain that he needed help to save officers’ lives, Sund said, he felt both “nauseated” and “mad as hell.” “It’s a response I will never forget for the rest of my life,” Sund writes. While on the call, Sund recalls hearing the frantic voice of an officer being broadcast into the command center: “Shots fired in the Capitol, shots fired in the Capitol.” Sund’s anger boiled over and he shouted the report of gunfire into the conference call: “Is that urgent enough for you now?” Then Sund hung up to deal with this new crisis.

A sliver of good news.

Turkey Supreme Court Bans Genetically Modified Grains Imports (S4S)

The Turkish Supreme Court has reimposed an import ban on the import of the genetically modified maize product MON810. This is the latest development in Turkey’s efforts to restrict genetically modified (GM) products. In 2010, the Turkish government enacted a biosafety law, banning the cultivation and import of biotech crops for food and feed use unless approved by the Ministry of Agriculture. In 2013, approval was suspended for products containing the GM maize MON810, effectively banning imports. This impacted shipments of Distillers Dried Grain with Solubles (DDGS) from the United States.

This ban was reversed by the Turkish High Court in 2015. However, the Supreme Court decision, announced in December 2022, now reimposes the prohibition of importing corn and other products containing MON810. What is more, the North Club noted that its correspondents in Turkey, Vitsan advise that vessels carrying DDGS cargo will be boarded upon arrival by the authorities who will take their own samples. If their analysis detects the presence of MON810, even if by contamination, they may refuse the import of cargo. Vitsan further recommend that vessels intending to load DDGS cargo destined for Turkey should check the cargo quality certificates or analyses certificates prior to loading as to whether it contains banned GM products.

    UK excess deaths are higher now than during the “pandemic”.
    What a hoot!

    I wonder what’s causing this? *wink *wink




    Too young to die, too boosted to live!




    Just found out my super death-vaxxed tennis partner has Covid yet again, as does her super death-vaxxed husband.
    She’s finally stopped telling me to get vaxxed!!

    It’s just laughable.


    Veracious Poet

    Well, false alarm on The Purge 😐

    My hope for 2023 is that a spiritual renaissance/awakening will happen, soon.


    UK NHS is in a state of collapse.

    ” …ambulance services now struggling to find available crews for cardiac arrests – the highest category of emergency call.”

    Interesting, … Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, … the Company provides information to help doctors, hospitals, pharmaceuticals. The Company is facing pressure primarily from…the loss of disrupted drug development work in Ukraine, … by company’s sector ‘Labcorp Drug Development’

    The Company now prepares ( and struggles with! ) to spin off its Drug Development business as an independent public company…

    Dr. D

    Ukr Aid is twice Russia’s whole military budget. First clue they aren’t helping Ukraine, they’re helping themselves. What was it, 2/3s of the aid doesn’t get there? Well it arrives somewhere, anyone check Delaware?

    FDA and Alive.

    Yes, but when will it matter?

    Ellison was only trying to help. Awwwww. Poor little dear with no personal autnomy and agency of her own. So again, she exists only to be spun against in a much more clever PR approach than SBF. Will it help? Sure looks like she’s the fall guy. She cuts a deal which should be the safe seat but SBF walks away.

    Btw, rumors Disney is involved, and if so must be big. Shark Tank’s O’Leary, not a billionaire and the biggest failure of all economic time – his accounting fraud nearly brought down Mattel, a wildly larger company and is a Wall Street legend still remembered – started mentioning Iger on TV and was cut off even faster than anyone has ever seen, even Jeffrey Sachs on Ukraine.

    …Disney is of course both woke and bleeding billions due to Iger’s kind of crappy suicidal purchases and accounting fraud O’Leary would be familiar with, so either hustling some extra cash on the side (FTX advertised the definition of Ponzi: “give me your money and I’ll give you 8% returns compounded no-risk guaranteed”) and/OR straight casino trading there trying to raise cash OR they are for reasons/blackmail of their own, paying company + Iger money to the DNC in “Donations”. Note the FTX Client list is more secret than Maxwell’s. Why? Did I not pay for the d—n trial? I am the oversight for the Government, where’s my public case documents? If you won’t print them I can only conclude it is BAD, not good. “Bad” means it’s major banks that will collapse.

    They need to fear NOT telling us, because their lack of the teeeeniest oversight and truth makes us people so spooked we pull our money, attention, and consent from EVERYWHERE until they tell us and things are public again. How do you have a Democracy with no public information? I vote ’cause you said so?

    All I can assume is that whatever FTX was doing must be worse than Maxwell. And involves everyone rich, powerful, and in control of the court’s Judge. Right? Otherwise you’d tell me.

    Hamlin “This was called “unprecedented” on ESPN”

    Except that it happens 365 days of the year now. Since Sept 2020. But Deflationista said it’s always happened. 9 year olds always had strokes while playing Pop Warner football. Don’t you remember? We always gave CPR in High School, almost once per game. The Revolution WILL be televised. But you’ll deny it. Everything is fiction now. Your Dad was right: TV DID rot your brain.

    “28% of the population believing the government and every authority they were raised their life to trust would push something this dangerous onto them shatters the institutional trust our entire society is built upon.”

    So many things here. 1,000 calls is almost zero sample. 28%/49% seems awful high. Breaking Institutional Trust is the GOAL. I mean besides killing people. “Civilization” is not based on cities, that’s just stupid; it’s based on TRUST, and custom, to be able to predict what will happen and what to do. Let’s say your enemy comes over the hill: what do you do? We have RULES about Parley. They have SYMBOLS of a white flag. We have CONSEQUENCES for breaking them. That’s “civilization.” To have bravery, costs, choices, and goals to uphold. Some Indian Brave or Clan Chief has to go out on the field, meet him, and possibly be killed. That IS laudible. And it is NOT cowardly. Even a swineherd has RULES of host for Odysseus. King Odysseus upholds his own RULES and limitations of the guest. That’s not made up, it has real costs and consequences.

    The dissolution of TRUST ends the COOPERATION SYSTEM. The Cooperation system — usually defined as “Money” because they run together — is how we have any division of labor and expertise that makes us so rich. Usually we focus on the money and corrupting that, but an awful lot of what we do isn’t for money but as a PROMISE, and a lot of money is itself merely a PROMISE, as in a “Promissory Note”, and IOU, a debt. They’re the same.

    Dissolve Trust and you dissolve all of that. The nation is more thoroughly destroyed and helpless before you than a nuclear bomb. Look at Detroit. Or Detroit vs Windsor. America has no trust, is a nation of shysters all robbing each other for that one snowmobile up on blocks in the front yard. The Social Contract is broken. And when it breaks – when hard work and reward are completely separated – people stop. Stop working, but stop everything.

    Is that an Ayn Rand quote here?

    “”when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you. . . you may know your nation is doomed.”

    That’s lack of Trust, and Institutional Trust specifically, as a nation of adults screwed their kids white, told them to go to school, do what they’re told, take out life-ending loans to go to school. Why do you make Ayn Rand right? Doesn’t that hurt you inside?

    This is all different and far, FAR more fatal than a forced injection with a 10% kill rate.

    “DeSantis: We’re Suing Big Pharma for Killing Americans with COVID Shots (NP)”

    Only need discovery and publicity. If they’re fine and honest, nothing will happen, no harm done. Like we said about voting machines, everything else, they should WELCOME the lawsuit so they can slap down the evidence in court and tell them to read it and weep. We’re clean as the day is long.

    “Did Pfizer Perform Safety Testing for mRNA Vaccine in Preclinical Studies? (SL)”

    Of course they did, but when it came up “certain death”, they then hid it and pretended they didn’t. Shouldn’t be too hard to find though.

    “ICAN Obtains Disturbing Information About AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccine (ICAN)”

    Don’t worry: they’ll just say it’s Astra Zeneca; I’ve already heard it. “Safe and Effective” …except for AZ, JnJ, and a few others. So at least 20% Safe and Effective, as only one in five companies didn’t have problems. Right? Wait, the 20% was only between 20% effective and -20% effective?

    NOTHING BREAKS THROUGH. It’s “Safe and Effective” and I’m a tin foil hat moron for suggesting otherwise when THEIR OWN FAMILY took the vaccine (JnJ) and then immediately got Covid. “Well that’s just the stupid JnJ – everybody knows that.”

    Well then it’s not “Safe and Effective”, by definition, everybody knows THAT.

    Nope: it’s both “Safe and Effective” and also complain about how it doesn’t work at all. At which point I stopped trying. I’m only annoying the pig. You are going to die. I told you. I can say it for you but I can’t understand it for you. We have two guys: me, someone you know and from experience should trust. On the other side we have a billionaire corporation who’s paid the largest felony fine in world history. Which should you trust? Your own family and friends? Hint: Billionaires are not your friends. If they don’t trust what I say, maybe I’m not their friend either. Certainly I have no value to them and should just shut up. It’s certainly disenheartening, especially as the evidence piles up they will die rather than admit they thought wrong even once, back when, at first. God himself has said this: “They are a stiff-necked people.”

    “Berlin has no plans to send modern Western-made tanks to Ukraine,”

    An easy ask: they don’t have any. Didn’t they have both a whole tank division with no working tanks and a whole jet division with like 2 working jets? A: Of course they did, it’s NATO-made hardware. Not France or Portugal but Germany. But it’s Russia that’s run out.

    “A ceasefire means: We stop shooting,”

    How? They never stopped shooting, not for a single day since 2014. And they already had not only peace negotiations but a peace treaty, signed by major European nations as assurance. They then elected a 100% pro-peace President on a pro-peace, reconciliation, unity platform. What can you possibly say or offer?

    “ Questions and Answers (Kunstler)”

    When you add it all up, it’s amazing. This is by no means a complete list, nor a list that goes back all the years. This is why you can’t tolerate the first lie and let it slide. You must hammer them and not let up, or it’s a Trojan Horse. They must be discredited or they’ll keep talking and harming people.

    “even his own agency’s intelligence unit had been alerted weeks earlier to reams of chilling chatter about right-wing extremists arming for an attack on the Capitol that day, Sund says, but didn’t take the basic steps”

    Okay, great. Why? Were they then fired for failure? How did they not know when Alex Jones said to his 5 million viewers and Trump Tweeted it to all of Congress? Pretty weird failure WaPo, home of accidental coincidence theorists.

    See, bringing up Russian oligarchs made us all present 4-5 good ideas about it. So good on them and good on us. Yes, if you’ve got a serial killer running around, obviously best time to knock off your rivals.


    Masked white guy with BLM shirt who has communist tattoos yet actively benefits from capitalism…does it get more woke than this?






    from Dr D

    “..Let’s say your enemy comes over the hill: what do you do? We have RULES about Parley. They have SYMBOLS of a white flag. We have CONSEQUENCES for breaking them…”

    I use to know a WWII veteran who fought in Europe

    His company unit had German forces bottled up in a town and surrounded one time.

    In the evening the Germans waved a white flag to ‘parley’

    His Lieutenant when out to talk.

    He was gone for a long time and the sun finally went down. Never came back.

    In the morning they found their Lieutenant dead in the road, he’d been stabbed to death by the German (SS) forces.

    So the GIs called up a couple of tanks who started firing point blanket into the treeline where the Germans were hiding. They had no heavy weapons.

    After 10 minutes, the white flags popped out, again, and about thirty German soldiers came out with their hands up, unarmed.

    This WWII vet told me they let the Germans come up the road until they were about 50 yards from their position and then they shot them all dead, unarmed, with their hands up, holding their little white flags.

    They then had the tanks drive over the bodies and then rolled the remains into the water filled ditch on the side of the road and went on to occupy the town.

    So yes,

    We have RULES about Parley. They have SYMBOLS of a white flag. We have CONSEQUENCES for breaking them.

    The Russians are on this page as we speak, except they will never trust the Collective West to ‘parley’ ever again.

    Fool me once, shame on you

    Fool me twice, you end up face down in a water filled trench


    Journalist and Irish Times contributor Brian Hutton dies suddenly

    46 years old



    That Bloke

    Did you personally know anyone whose death you think may have been caused by side effects…

    Perhaps we could have a TAE poll?

    I’ll start: yes, two.

    One a friend who had pancreatic cancer. She had chemo and then an operation to remove the tumour. Things were going well then in December ‘21 she was boosted after which her blood counts went haywire and a new tumour grew with spread around the body in record time. She died in May.

    The other was a former colleague, mid-60s, in good health. Went to bed feeling fine and never woke up.

    On top of that, a friend’s wife in her 50s had a TIA a few weeks after you know what, with no family history of strokes. Plus my wife who has developed mild arrhythmia and an eye problem.

    *I can’t mention you know, the thing or this won’t post.


    My husband and I were talking about this the other day, we may know of as many as 10 people that have died suddenly, or been diagnosed with very aggressive cancer that killed them, have had major strokes, or have had sudden “mystery” illnesses, all in the past 2 years. 2 of those were healthy people in their 50s that went to bed and didn’t wake up and were “shocking” sudden deaths no one expected. Nearly all the people listed above were in their 50s give or take a little, a couple sudden cancer diagnosis and deaths were men with children under 18, very sad.


    Israel declares C19 pandemic over, relabeled as endemic.

    Does this mean the Israeli health ministers know the C19 “vaccines” are more dangerous to most people than the virus, and therefore mandating “vaccines” during the pandemic was a bad idea? Cancel pandemic, cancel jab mandates? Don’t know, but it would be a face-saving way out of the disaster they made.

    What she would have said observing fantastic effort by the RIM and the Crew at Monastiraki?


    Everybody has an important story to tell and there are no listeners.

    I accidently deleted a great post about “Rats” ( not following the official script 100%). (TAE has a great list. Germ, Dr., General bloggers).

    KunstlerCast 368 — A Chat with David Collum about his Year in Review

    KunstlerCast 368 — A Chat with David Collum about his Year in Review


    Over at the Unz Review Ron Unz has written an article arguing that the increase in deaths is due to Long Covid and not the vaccine.

    I have to believe that the authorities know whether the people dying suddenly had Covid and/or were vaxxed. This data could help us know what is really going on but I doubt we will ever see it. Also he says nothing about autopsies not being done and Unz completely ignores the question of denied early treatment which possibly could have kept people from getting Long Covid at all.

    That said, I really appreciate Unz for allowing diverse opinions (not all of which he agrees with) on his site.

    Dr. D

    Exactly the Consequences I was thinking of. I bet that SS Officer thought he was being sooper cute. Good job all around. The only thing I can add is to send a nice little rumor about it to the other side.

    What would Ayn have thought? Free choice. Do what you want, unlike the other side — arresting people feeding the homeless on the beach — I won’t stop you. It’s your food, do whatever you like with it. That and why are they in a soup kitchen? Because “Now you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; now you you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; now men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and now the laws no longer protect you” In fact, she just DID say that. I just quoted it. Some people may need charity from time to time and that’s our business as their friends and family. But never, ever to this level until the above rapacious system of illegal graft is in place. They’d all be selling their own hot dogs on the street and fixing each other’s apartments in no time unless very specifically stopped, harassed, and arrested, which the EU does. Every. Day. You can’t even THINK quietly to yourself, goodwill toward lost women and men, on a street in Britain, when the clinic’s closed.

    So, um, when Greece was a bunch of tribes in the hills, 900BC, who was running the soup kitchen? Really? So if I’m wrong, why now?

    “When Everybody Knows” is up, with picture of lumberjack sawing up a dead tree on New Year’s Day

    Some of us remember the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, in very early 1968. My USMC-Major Dad had just gotten back from ‘Nam a few weeks before the offensive, but we already knew things were much worse than advertised (Though Dad always maintained that “we could have won the war if we were allowed to.).
    Walter Cronkite, on the CBS Evening News, commented with great concern that America might have been misled by the government, and the tide of public opinion, tensely divided until then, turned against the war. That was a “Paradigm-Shift”.
    This appears to be the trigger for another Paradigm Shift in the common-wisdom of the American public.
    The US Government has been lying and killing Americans on purpose again.

    “49% of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely”…
    ..28% know someone directly they believe died from a vaccine. Even if the correlation is false (although I believe it is the opposite as many of the deaths are not recognized), 28% of the population believing the government and every authority they were raised their life to trust would push something this dangerous onto them shatters the institutional trust our entire society is built upon…
    ..When asked if they knew someone who they suspected had died from the vaccine, 33% of Democrats said yes, while 26% of both Republicans and those who were not affiliated with either party said yes. Rasmussen argues this (along with many other demographic response rates) suggests the poll’s results were valid, and explained this result being due Democrats, while being less likely to want to acknowledge a vaccine injury, likely knowing far more people who were vaccinated, and thus being exposed to a higher rate of deaths.

    Charles Hugh Smith, It’s A New Era
    Making problems much worse by forcing more of whatever worked in the previous era into a saturated, increasing unstable new era–receives little attention or understanding.
    Eras may last decades, and only those who’ve lived long enough to recall previous eras have experienced the transition from one era to the next. The era of financialization, globalization and low-cost, abundant oil/natural gas began over 40 years ago in 1981.
    The era of digital / Internet technologies took off about 30 years ago. All of these dynamics accelerated in the early 2000s, roughly 20 years ago.
    Only those 60 and older experienced working in a previous era (pre-1981).
    All of these dynamics are entering a phase of nonlinear turbulence as the changes are outpacing these highly streamlined / optimized systems’ ability to self-correct.
    This nonlinear instability is being accelerated by doing more of what worked in the previous era, in the mistaken belief that the 2020s are simply an extension of the eras that began 40 and 30 years ago.

    In 2023 it will be all about the dollar The international section of the Shanghai Gold Exchange will be used by Saudi Arabia for its yuan to gold transactions. It is therefore likely that some of China’s purchase of nearly 300 tonnes in recent weeks will be to provide liquidity to backstop this market.
    With regard to prospects for next year’s gold price, it should be noted that the major factor will be the fate of the dollar. It appears likely that dollar oil prices will increase in the coming months, while foreign holders of dollars will continue to reduce their dollar exposure, which in the year to October declined by $3.8 trillion. But a rising interest rate trend leading to falling financial asset values and the petroyuan replacing the petrodollar, events could coalesce into a perfect storm for the dollar.
    This is not how conventional analysts look at the gold price. They would argue that higher interest rates, if they occur, will drive gold lower. But that is an argument that denies the role of gold as money.

    A Multipolar Shift with Energy and Dollar Disruptions, Victor Xing
    Executive Summary
    In the near term, China’s reopening and buying of ESPO (East Siberian Pacific Ocean, Russian) crude would likely erode the role of Brent & energy indices
    Gulf nations envision the scope of petroyuan to be on par with demands for Chinese goods & technology transfer
    Rising yuan payments for Russian energy and more China-Gulf bilateral trade imply future dollar demand decline
    In the long term, more local currency trade settlements would erode dollar flows and Federal Reserve’s influence

    Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

    ‘Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is an early study of crowd psychology by Scottish journalist Charles Mackay, first published in 1841 under the title Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions.[1] The book was published in three volumes: “National Delusions”, “Peculiar Follies”, and “Philosophical Delusions”.[2] Mackay was an accomplished teller of stories, though he wrote in a journalistic and somewhat sensational style.

    The subjects of Mackay’s debunking include alchemy, crusades, duels, economic bubbles, fortune-telling, haunted houses, the Drummer of Tedworth, the influence of politics and religion on the shapes of beards and hair, magnetisers (influence of imagination in curing disease), murder through poisoning, prophecies, popular admiration of great thieves, popular follies of great cities, and relics. Present-day writers on economics, such as Michael Lewis and Andrew Tobias, laud the three chapters on economic bubbles.[3]

    In later editions, Mackay added a footnote referencing the Railway Mania of the 1840s as another “popular delusion” which was at least as important as the South Sea Bubble. In the 21st century, the mathematician Andrew Odlyzko pointed out, in a published lecture, that Mackay himself played a role in this economic bubble; as a leader writer in The Glasgow Argus, Mackay wrote on 2 October 1845: “There is no reason whatever to fear a crash”

    Some link won’t take (AI censorship suspected) I’m trying yet again, gapping every ink between “dot” and “com”.

    Tom Luongo has posted “The Russian Regime Change Trap”, pointing out that there is a lot of ongoing talk about effecting regime change in Russia in the west. The reason he explains at length is that the neocon establishment has a foregone conclusion that Russia will again be turned over to western vulture-capitalism, as it was under Yeltsin in the 1990s. This carrion-feast is “divinely” ordained, but they are just being thwarted by Vladimir Putin again. He didn’t go down with the Russian economy, as planned, so he needs to be taken-out as quickly as possible, by any means, so that history can resume its orderly progression.
    Luongo sees the “Davos Crowd”, including Merkel, Macron and other Eurocrats, as being distinct from the more vicious and inelegant neocons, like Nuland & friends. He sees the long strategy to get Russia to build Nordstream-2, in order to pretend to plan a future together, as being cover to build a Ukrainian army to destroy Russia, as well as destroying the Russian investment so easily.
    Merkel, Macron and Ukrainian politicians have endorsed that they were never serious about normalizing relations with Russia via the Minsk agreements. This stance, whether true or not, means that there has long been nobody “agreement capable” in the NATO world.
    Luongo points out that Russia must therefore grind NATO meat, not merely Ukrainian meat in the grinder.
    The Russian people do not have the same illusions that those in the west do. They know life is hard, war is bad, and Putin is not a perfect man. Russian government is still corrupt. Still, Putin is a Russian patriot, and this is existential war to save Russia from another round of the 1990s, so the Russian nation, government and armed forces all support this action, which will not falter.
    Therefore, as he sees it, NATO advancement against Russian forces will serve to bring NATO to the Russian meat-grinder, and already is.
    https://tomluongo. me/2022/12/30/the-russian-regime-change-trap/#respond

    From the Hal Turner show: (If the west keeps feeding the grinder, the west will fare as Ukraine is faring. Going nuclear is the other choice.)
    The country of Poland has, over the past months, inserted fifteen thousand (15,000) regular, active-duty, Polish Army troops into Ukraine and they are waging illegal war against Russia inside Ukraine.
    This information comes from intel sources just back from the actual front lines inside Ukraine, and these sources are unimpeachable intel sources.
    Many have known for months that NATO countries have been sending “advisors” into Ukraine, to “teach” Ukrainian troops how to use advanced weapons being supplied by NATO countries. But all along, NATO emphasized “we are not a party to the conflict.” That is a lie.
    NATO troops from Poland, and from the United States and United Kingdom are, in fact, participating in the war and this covert military participation is going to get a lot of us in America, and in Europe, killed.

    Turkey will have to follow-through and keep troops out of Syria, but it would then be “agreement capable” and have to exit NATO.

    ..A special trilateral commission will be created by Russia, Türkiye and Syria to ensure that the agreements reached in Moscow are honored, Al-Watan reported.

    ..Indeed, since then, Erdogan had been protesting in vain that the US, a NATO ally, had aligned with a terrorist group (Syrian Kurds known as YPG) that threatened Turkiye’s sovereignty and territorial integrity…
    ..It is against such a backdrop that the two meetings in Moscow on Wednesday between the defence ministers and intelligence chiefs of Turkey and Syria in the presence of their Russian counterparts took place. Erdogan’s reconciliation process with Assad is quintessentially his sweet revenge for the American betrayal…
    ..On Thursday, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said: “At the meeting (in Moscow), we discussed what we could do to improve the situation in Syria and the region as soon as possible while ensuring peace, tranquility and stability… We reiterated our respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty rights of all our neighbours, especially Syria and Iraq, and that our sole aim is the fight against terrorism, we have no other purpose.”
    Russian President Vladimir Putin has been counselling Erdogan in recent years that Turkiye’s security concerns are best tackled in coordination with Damascus and that Adana Agreement could provide a framework of cooperation…
    ..The US resents Erdogan’s move to normalise with Assad — and that too, with Russia’s helping hand. It is now even more unlikely to give up its military presence in Syria or its alliance with the Syrian Kurdish group YPG (which Ankara regards as an affiliate of the PKK.)
    But the YPG will find itself in a tight spot. As Syria requests Turkiye to withdraw from its territories (Idlib and so-called operation areas) and stop supporting armed groups, Turkiye in return will insist on pushing the YPG away from the border…
    .. Russian influence on Syria remains intact and Moscow will continue to shape Syria’s transition out of conflict zone and consolidate its own long-term presence in Eastern Mediterranean.
    OPEC Plus has gained traction. Russia’s ties with the Gulf states are steadily growing. The Russia-Iran strategic ties are at its highest level in history.

    By Debt, Russia is lookin’ good



    Two people who died from cancer following vaxx. One person was less than 2 months from diagnosis to grave. The other went from being a hard working business owner to having cancer throughout his body. They did what they could. It wasn’t pretty. He spent some horrible months before he died.

    My youngest brother (late 40s) is vaxxed and boosted. Recently diagnosed with blood clots in his legs. Fingers crossed the drugs dissolve them. Or there are other options to get rid of them. Makes me wonder about his heart.

    Several other vaxxed people in my inner circle are, literally, almost constantly sick.


    ‘The US Government has been lying and killing Americans on purpose again’


    The US Government has been lying and killing Americans on purpose since 1609, before it was even called the US Government, i.e. when it was a London-based corporation..

    It got very good at it in the 1860s.

    Backed off a little after that spectacular bloodbath.

    Then got back into it in the late 1870s.

    The big question is this: is the US government still a London-based corporation. Or did the child outgrow the parent and Airstrip One become an Airstrip-Two-controlled corporation?

    Airstrip Five is definitely controlled by Airstrips One and Two.

    People think voting makes a difference.

    Yeah, a difference in the name of the psychotic actors with extreme sociopath tendencies who get paid huge salaries for regular performances.


    2023. Off to a spectacular start.


    Sudden death on the field.

    It seems quite obvious to me that these “Sudden Deaths” on the playing field is caused by the jarring loose of the long white ‘calamari’ clots that seem to be in almost everyone who got the shot.

    I would bet that most of these “field deaths” happen just after a bodily impact on the player. Releasing this clot material in the arteries would then send it into the heart, lungs or other critical organ where it would jam up the valves and tubes.

    The fact that embalmers are easily pulling these out of their “clients” makes me think that the long fibers are not that well attached to the arterial and venous walls and the hydrostatic shock associated with an athletic impact might just be the thing that sets them free.
