A Message to Germans—Nord Stream Bombing





If Ukraine were a democracy, Medvedchuk would have a loud voice.

Medvedchuk Sees No Prospects For Minsk-3 (TASS)

Viktor Medvedchuk, leader of the Opposition Platform For Life party, which is outlawed in Ukraine, said on Sunday that he sees no perspectives for signing the third Minsk agreements.”As for possible Minsk-3, I see categorically no perspectives. Regrettably, the Minsk agreements have sunk into oblivion,” he told Belarus’ STV television channel.According to Medvedchuk, peace settlement in Ukraine “is possible only when several conditions are met.” But, in his words, “Ukraine has practically ceased to exist as a state.” “It is impossible to say now what can happen and how, whether there will be any peace talks,” he stressed.The Zelensky regime “has armed itself with a policy of neo-Nazism,” he said.

“The Western ideology, which has been imposed on the Ukrainian people, its authorities since 2005, when [Viktor] Yushchenko came to power, has been fed for all these years by Western money, ideology and democracy, which has led, as we see, to tens of thousands of human deaths, the destruction of Ukraine and the fighting Zelensky continues at the head of criminal authorities, until the last Ukrainian.” These actions, in his words, are evidently geared to create an “anti-Russia.” “To create and popularize the policy of anti-Russian hysteria, untamed Russophobia. And it is not easy to destroy it all,” he said, “Today, it is necessary to explode the myth that this neo-Nazism is supported by Ukrainians. It is not supported by those from nine to twelve million Ukrainians who have fled the country. It is not supported by millions staying in Ukraine, who, regrettably, have been driven under the bench, have been intimidates, threatened with repression, criminal prosecution, torture and violence,” Medvedchuk stressed.

According to the politician, the Other Ukraine political movement has been set up to tell the world community that many Ukrainians want normalization of relations with Russia. “So that, the voice of other Ukraine is heard in the world and is not represented by Zelensky who is traveling around the globe, using all possible venues with only one goal: to show that the Ukrainian people is allegedly consolidated and he is representing this people,” he said. He noted that “millions of Ukrainians have been forced to flee the country because of the policy of Zelensky’s criminal regime.” “Today, it is necessary to consolidate those Ukrainians who are against Zelensky’s criminal policy. We want his criminal regime to sink into oblivion. And it implies enormous work we have begun and will do to break the information space which has misted the thoughts and conscience of the Ukrainians filling it with anti-Russian hysteria,” he explained.

US Officials Basically Admit They Blew Up Nord Stream – Lavrov (RT)

US officials are basically admitting that they were behind the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines, which was perpetrated to prevent rapprochement between Moscow and Berlin, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said. “The US decided that we [Russia] have been cooperating too well with Germany over the past 20 or 30 years; or rather, the Germans cooperated with us too well,” he said in an interview published on the Foreign Ministry’s website on Sunday. The “powerful alliance” based on Russian energy resources and German technology “began to threaten the monopoly position of many American corporations,” Lavrov explained. So, Washington decided to destroy this alliance between Moscow and Berlin, and did it “literally” by attacking the pipelines, which were built to deliver Russian gas to Europe through Germany, he added.

“American officials are basically admitting that the explosions that occurred at Nord Stream 1 and 2 were their doing. They even speak about it with joy,” the foreign minister stated. Lavrov was likely referring to a confession made by US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland during a Senate hearing in late January. “I am, and I think the administration is, very gratified to know that Nord Stream 2 is now… a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea,” she said at that time. “The vileness of Western politicians is well known,” Lavrov continued, suggesting that “the plan, which is now being implemented through ‘inciting’ Ukraine against Russia and waging a war by the entire West against Russia by means of Ukraine, is to a large extent aimed at preventing a new rapprochement between Germany and Russia.”

The comments by Russia’s top diplomat come just days after iconic American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh released a bombshell report, blaming Washington for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines last year. According to an informed source who talked to Hersh, explosives were planted at the pipelines in the Baltic Sea back in June 2022 by US Navy divers under the guise of a NATO exercise. They were detonated in late September, rendering the key European energy infrastructure inoperable. US National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson denied the report by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, calling it “utterly false and complete fiction.” No one among high-ranking American officials has even commented on the accusations made by Hersh.

For months, the Russian authorities have been pointing to the fact that the only side to benefit from the destruction of Nord Stream was the US, which has seen supplies of its more expensive liquefied natural gas to Europe increase massively since the explosions.

JP Morgan Reaches Agreement With Zelenskyy On Rebuilding Infrastructure (Fox)

J.P. Morgan, the nation’s largest bank, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the eye on attracting private capital for a new investment fund to rebuild Ukraine’s infrastructure that has been destroyed in its war with Russia, FOX Business has learned. J.P. Morgan bankers spent most of last week meeting with Zelenskyy and his senior staff in Ukraine where they discussed the creation of a fund seeded with $20 billion to $30 billion in private capital, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. Other ideas discussed with the Ukrainian president were the creation of a bank administered by Wall Street firms that would make investments in oil refineries, roads, bridges and other pieces of economic infrastructure destroyed in Vladimir Putin’s year-long campaign to annex the country and rebuild the old Soviet Union, these people add.

J.P. Morgan bankers were on the ground in Kyiv and other cities, dodging bombs, and witnessing firsthand how the war has crippled the country’s economy. After a series of meetings with various ministers, they met directly with Zelenskyy on Friday night. As a gesture of goodwill on the eve of Sunday’s Super Bowl, the bankers also presented Zelenskyy with a New England Patriots jersey with the number “91,” to signify the year Ukraine gained independence from the old Soviet Union, these people say. FOX Business is the first to report the possible creation of an investment fund and bank to help rebuild the country. People with knowledge of the matter say the plans for a fund or a bank are in the nascent stages and subject to change. J.P. Morgan declined to comment. The big bank is expected to make an announcement about its work in Ukraine on Monday.

[..] Privately, J.P. Morgan bankers met with Zelenskyy for hours last week, providing him with ideas on how to attract private capital. They also recommended that he invite major CEOs, like Apple’s Tim Cook, to the country to discuss economic development and that he meet with GOP lawmakers, such as the new House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. Some Republicans are skeptical about the billions in US aid being sent to the country, these people add. They also said that weeding out corruption and eliminating graft in government will be key to attracting private capital. Zelenskyy was said to be receptive to the advice and understood that at some point the vast amounts of western aid to the country will come to an end and that private capital – which will demand a return for its investment – will be needed to rebuild, these people say.

“..the tenth sanctions package will only be suitable for causing further damage to us Europeans, similar to the previous nine ones.”

Hungary Slams EU Push To Arm Ukraine (RT)

The European Union’s calls to keep supporting Ukraine with arms shipments will only prolong the conflict with Russia, the Hungarian foreign minister said on Sunday. Speaking to radio Kossuth, Peter Szijjarto commented on recent remarks by the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, who pushed for fighter jets and long-range weapons to be sent to Kiev. According to the minister, EU lawmakers’ decisions on Ukraine “have generally caused damage to Europe,” and further weapons deliveries will only worsen the hostilities. He went on to blast the EU legislature, claiming that its “credibility is practically zero.” Szijjarto pointed to a recent graft scandal as proof that the EU parliament is “one of the most corrupt organizations in the world.”

He was referring to the recent arrest of the parliament’s former vice president, Eva Kaili, who has been charged with taking bribes from Qatar in exchange for illegally lobbying the interests of the Gulf state. Szijjarto noted that in Western countries, war rhetoric sounds “incomparably louder than the rhetoric of peace,” while nations outside “the transatlantic bubble” tend to prefer peace to a deadly conflict. The minister went on to question the West’s anti-Russia sanctions. He argued that they have failed to force Moscow to end the conflict, while Europe’s economy has “faced incredible difficulties,” and that “the tenth sanctions package will only be suitable for causing further damage to us Europeans, similar to the previous nine ones.” Since the start of large-scale hostilities in Ukraine almost a year ago, Hungary, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy, has been critical of Western sanctions against Moscow. It has also refused to support Kiev with weapons, or allow arms transfers across its border with Ukraine.

And that’s why Samantha Power is in Budapest. They should throw her out.

Samantha Power is in Hungary, Seeding Another Color Revolution (CTH)

Hungary has been in the crosshairs of the Biden/Obama administration ever since Prime Minister Viktor Orban refused to align with the WEF Western Democracies in their quest for regime change in Russia. As the NATO led western alliance assembled to use Ukraine as a proxy war against Russia, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban would not join. In early April 2022, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was overwhelmingly reelected, despite the massive efforts against him by the European Union, western and euro-centric multinational globalists. As a result of the victory, Brussels was furious at the Hungarian people. Associated Press – […] “Orban — a fierce critic of immigration, LGBTQ rights and “EU bureaucrats” — has garnered the admiration of right-wing nationalists across Europe and North America.”

Within the statements reported from his 2022 victory speech, Prime Minister Orban warned citizens of the NATO and western allied countries about the manipulation of Ukraine and how he views the Zelenskyy regime: […] “while speaking to supporters on Sunday, Orban singled out Zelenskyy as part of the “overwhelming force” that he said his party had struggled against in the election — “the left at home, the international left, the Brussels bureaucrats, the Soros empire with all its money, the international mainstream media, and in the end, even the Ukrainian president.”This put Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in the crosshairs of the western alliance, specifically the EU and U.S. bureaucrats who use their power, position and intelligence apparatus to manipulate foreign nations. A year later and now we see USAID Administrator Samantha Power in Hungary openly discussing her seeding of the NGO’s and political activist systems in order to generate yet another color revolution.

Samantha Power, the wife of Cass Sunstein, is well known as the Obama/Biden administration’s advance operative who uses her position in U.S. government to influence activism in targeted nations. Hungary is now her target. Why is eliminating Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban now the goal of the Biden administration. Well, a reminder: • Hungary warned citizens of the west about the New World Order, created through Ukraine. • Hungary continued to purchase Russian oil and natural gas. Zelenskyy and the Western alliance were furious. • Hungary said they would continue energy purchases in Rubles if that is what Russia demanded.

We will not enable escalation of conflict that may lead to WW3.”

Elon Musk Explains Purpose Of Starlink In Ukraine (RT)

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has revealed the rationale behind the company’s decision to restrict the use of its Starlink internet system by the Ukrainian military. He doesn’t want the conflict to escalate into World War III, he said. The explanation was part of Musk’s response to astronaut Scott Kelly, who is a vocal supporter of the Ukrainian cause. Kelly urged restoration of full functionality of the system. The restriction announced last week bars the Ukrainian military from using Starlink to pilot drones, which SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell described as “weaponization” of the product. Musk said Kelly was “smart enough not to swallow media & other propaganda bs” and pointed out that Starlink remained available for military communications in Ukraine, even though as a private company SpaceX had the right to switch the terminals off.

“We’re trying hard to do the right thing, where the ‘right thing’ is an extremely difficult moral question,” Musk stated. “We will not enable escalation of conflict that may lead to WW3.” The Starlink system was hailed by US officials as a gamechanger for the Ukrainian military, providing a reliable communication system that Russia allegedly could not disrupt through hacking. But Musk has provoked the ire of Kiev on several occasions, including by proposing a peace plan in October that would have required Ukraine to make concessions to Russia. He faced criticism and insults from Ukrainian officials in response.

Responding to the Starlink change, Mikhail Podoliak, an aide to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, declared that Musk and Shotwell had only two options: they could either be on Ukraine’s side and not seek “ways to do harm” or be counted as pro-Russian. The same official previously claimed that the Musk-owned social media platform Twitter was limiting the reach of Ukrainian government accounts and helping “Russian propaganda.” Podoliak offered no evidence to support the claim, but threatened regulatory action.

Big Oil Rakes In Record Profits (RT)

Oil giants Shell, BP, Exxon Mobil, Chevron and TotalEnergies posted a combined profit of $196.3 billion last year, according to the companies’ earnings reports. A record-high result for the oil industry, the sum tops the economic output of most countries. French oil giant TotalEnergies was the last to report on its earnings, announcing on Wednesday that its full-year profit in 2022 was $36.2 billion, double its total for 2021. US oil major Chevron and British giants BP and Shell also reported record-high results earlier this month, while Exxon’s $56 billion-profit marked a historic high for the entire Western oil industry. The record-setting earnings came as a result of a spike in fossil fuel prices last year. However, criticism of the industry for hoarding money while consumers are struggling to pay soaring energy bills has intensified.

“Given that we’re entering a global recession and that most of us know people who are struggling, we must all call out profiteering like this,” Alice Harrison from advocacy group Global Witness, told CNBC, calling for “an increased windfall tax to help those struggling to pay their bills.” Human rights group Amnesty International said the oil majors’ profits are “patently unjustifiable” and “an unmitigated disaster.” “The billions of dollars of profits being made by these oil corporations must be adequately taxed so that governments can address effectively the rising cost of living for most vulnerable populations,” said the group’s secretary general Agnes Callamard. US President Joe Biden called Big Oil’s record earnings “outrageous” in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. The head of state noted that the companies invested “too little of that profit” into efforts to stem the surge in energy prices, and proposed raising the tax on corporate stock buybacks four times to boost long-term investment.

Oil companies, however, have been arguing that windfall taxes could hinder investment. “Windfall taxes or price caps simply erode confidence in that investment stability and so I do worry about some of the moves being made. I think there is a different approach that needs to be had which is to really draw investment capital at a time when we need to be able to embed energy security into the broader energy system here in Europe,” Shell CEO Wael Sawan said last week. This opinion was mirrored by Amin Nasser, head of the world’s largest energy company Saudi Aramco, who told CNBC that higher taxes are “not helpful for [the companies] in order to have additional investment.” “They need to invest in the sector, they need to grow the business, in alternatives and in conventional energy, and they need to be helped,” he added.

Europe’s Spend On Energy Crisis Nears 800 Billion Euros (RT)

European countries’ bill to shield households and companies from soaring energy costs has climbed to nearly 800 billion euros, researchers said on Monday, urging countries to be more targeted in their spending to tackle the energy crisis. European Union countries have now earmarked or allocated 681 billion euros in energy crisis speding, while Britain allocated 103 billion euros and Norway 8.1 billon euros since September 2021, according to the analysis by think-tank Bruegel. The 792-billion-euro total compares with 706 billion euros in Bruegel’s last assessment in November, as countries continue through winter to face the fallout from Russia cutting off most of its gas deliveries to Europe in 2022.

Germany topped the spending chart, allocating nearly 270 billion euros – a sum that eclipsed all other countries. Britain, Italy and France were the next highest, although each spent less than 150 billion euros. Most EU states spent a fraction of that. On a per capita basis, Luxembourg, Denmark and Germany were the biggest spenders. The spending earmarked by the countries on the energy crisis is now in the same league as the EU’s 750-billion-euro COVID-19 recovery fund. Agreed in 2020, that saw Brussels take on joint debt and pass it onto the bloc’s 27 member states to cope with the pandemic. The energy spending update comes as countries debate EU proposals to loosen state aid rules further for green technology projects, as Europe seeks to compete with subsidies in the United States and China.

“Now, this was an act of war, pure and simple. Curiously enough, it was against Germany.”

Ray McGovern Comments on Sy Hersh (Garland Nixon)

I know him to be a meticulous reporter, winner of five Polk Awards, Pulitzer Prize, you name it. Back in the day when honest reporters were so honored. This piece has all the earmarks of Sy’s meticulous approach, and he clearly has a very good source who felt a, well, he felt a constitutional obligation to honor his or her oath to the Constitution of the United States, which is the supreme oath any of us take. And that is to make sure that you tell the truth, especially when the Constitution is being violated. Now, this was an act of war, pure and simple. Curiously enough, it was against Germany. And curiously enough, President Joseph Biden, at a press conference in the presence of the chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, said this is going to happen if Russia invaded Ukraine. And, of course, he was asked, well, how do you do this? I mean, how can you how can you be so confident that Nordstrom will be killed and Biden said, well, just, you know, trust me, it’s going to happen.

And so she, bilingual, the Reuters reporter, turned to Scholz – and this is not widely available now for obvious reasons – and she said, well, I mean, do you agree with that? I mean, hello, how do you feel about this? And this hack, this political hack said: we do everything together. We do everything together. We will be together on this now. So that’s available now. It’s available. Not Sy Hersh’s piece yet, but that interview is available in Germany. You know, I describe Olaf Scholz as kind of the epitome of the abused spouse. Stands there and is abused not only by his master, Joe Biden, but also by this hack that he has as foreign minister. Her name is Baerbock. She is the the most vociferous of all the people saying that we are at war. That’s what she said. We are at war with Russia.

So the question will be: it has been 90 years, count them, nine zero years since the Nazis were making a push for power in Germany. What happened? The Reichstag, the German parliament building was burned down at the end of January, 1933. What happened? The Germans caved. The Nazis didn’t have a majority, but they scared the living daylights out of German citizens. First of all, Social Democrats gave in. Next to fall, the Zentrum party, the Catholic Party. No one spoke up. We know the rest of the story. All right. Now, sometimes history is replete with ironies. Here it is exactly to the month, 90 years later. Will the German people acquiesce in their industry, and then their bodies being frozen out this winter? Or will they rise up and say: “Look, Mr Scholz, you don’t know what the hell you’re doing, and neither does Baerbock. Get out of here!”, and replace that government?

“It is clear that… getting rid of cash not only touches on issues of transparency, simplicity or security… but also carries a huge danger of totalitarian surveillance..”

Cashless Society? Not in Switzerland (R.)

Swiss citizens will get the chance to try to ensure their economy never becomes cashless, a pressure group said, after collecting enough signatures on Monday to trigger a popular vote on the issue. The Free Switzerland Movement (FBS) says cash is playing a shrinking role in many economies, as electronic payments become the default for transactions in increasingly digitised societies, making it easier for the state to monitor its citizens’ actions. It wants a clause added to Switzerland’s currency law, which governs how the central bank and government manage the money supply, stipulating that a “sufficient quantity” of banknotes or coins must always remain in circulation.

There is no evidence of moves towards a cashless society by Swiss authorities. FBS said it had garnered over 111,000 signatures in support of the measure, above the 100,000 needed to trigger a popular vote. Under Switzerland’s system of direct democracy, the proposal would become law if approved by voters, though government and parliament would decide how that law was implemented.

“It is clear that… getting rid of cash not only touches on issues of transparency, simplicity or security… but also carries a huge danger of totalitarian surveillance,” FBS president Richard Koller said on the group’s website. He also views Switzerland as a European standard-bearer for the defence of cash, as pushing through such guarantees in the European Union would entail the “almost impossible” process of securing approval from all 27 member states. Accelerated by the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns, the trend towards increased cashless payments was evident as far back as 2017, when an Ipsos study found more than a third of Europeans and Americans would happily go without cash and 20 per cent pretty much did so already.

“Madness born of greed gets classified as ‘a higher form of civilization’..”

Homo implacatus (Jotwani)

A fairer economy would avoid excessive exploitation and extremes of inequality; it would also avoid any systemic negligence in the upbringing of the next generation. Such an economy would be in harmony with the living economics of nature, which has sustained life on earth from ‘day one’. Sadly, that worthy goal remains out of reach as long as people proclaim loudly that ‘greed is good’. We may consider a specific recent example. The subprime mortgage crisis in the US was caused by the fact that greedy but naïve people were cheated and exploited by greedy and cunning people. Naturally, the former were in much larger numbers, since that is a characteristic of economic exploitation.

That entire episode of ‘mega-greed’ – including the ensuing government bailouts – damaged the overall economy of the country and worsened the deep schisms running through the society. After studying such episodes of ‘mega-greed’, it would be difficult to argue that ‘greed is good’. The so-called ‘modern science’ of Economics is totally out of sync with living economics, which is the true economics of Mother Nature. The ‘fake science’ of Economics keeps inconvenient costs out of its books of accounts, and always comes up with wrong diagnoses and wrong prognoses. Nonetheless, because of the ignorance and greed of political leaders, this ‘fake science’ rules the roost.

We must hope for a smooth transition from the economics of death to living economics. However, far too much psychic energy has already been invested in the unnatural theories which justify exploitation of nature, exploitation of fellow human beings, and economic gain through bloody conflict. A painful denouement, or catharsis, is therefore inevitable – as has happened many times in human history. As before, such periods of violent house-cleaning are followed by rationalizations, often based on hoary books. A competition ensues among ‘scholars’ to show who is cleverer, or which hoary books have been proved right. Madness born of greed gets classified as ‘a higher form of civilization’.

UK Holds ‘Secret’ Cross-Party Brexit Summit (RT)

High-ranking officials from opposite ends of the UK political spectrum have held ‘secret’ discussions designed to navigate a path out of various economic and strategic problems posed by Brexit, according to a report by The Observer. Documents from the meeting obtained by the British newspaper say that the talks were held under the primary topic: “How can we make Brexit work better with our neighbours in Europe?” The newspaper quoted a source who stated it to have been a “constructive meeting” which discussed at length economic problems presented by Brexit which come at a time of rising inflation and energy prices. “The main thrust of it was that Britain is losing out, that Brexit is not delivering, our economy is in a weak position,” the source said.

The summit, which reportedly took place on Thursday and Friday, was attended by members of both the ‘Leave’ and ‘Remain’ campaigns, including senior Tory Michael Gove and several members of Keir Starmer’s Labour shadow cabinet. It also included figures from investment banking company Goldman Sachs and Angus Lapsley, the NATO assistant secretary general for defense policy and planning. Gove, who was a central voice in the ‘Leave’ movement in 2016, is also understood to have been “honest” about problems presented as a result of the vote, though he maintained a position that Brexit will prove to be a good choice long-term. The documents detailing the summit also said that “rejoining the EU will not be on the agenda” but noted that the UK and EU share common goals when it comes to the energy and technology sectors, the relationship with Washington, and “containing Russian aggression”.

They also raised questions about the benefits of closer links between the UK and the 27-member European bloc. The Northern Ireland protocol, which aims to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland without affecting trading ties between the UK and EU, is currently a central issue in Brussels and was also prominently discussed at the summit, The Observer wrote. The matter remains unresolved several years after Brexit came into effect. The nature of the talks reflects wider concerns from within the UK political ecosystem that Brexit will continue to damage the UK economy, as well as its strategic influence across the globe. The Office for Budget Responsibility has predicted that Brexit will reduce the UK’s GDP per capita by a factor of 4% over 15 years from 2016.

Character murder.

The Pain of Listening To Twitter Censorship Testimony (Naomi Wolf)

It is incredible to me, as someone who was raised in an American meritocracy, and who has until very recently believed in American meritocracy, that a group of nonentities in Twitter, in collusion with nonentities at CDC (hi there, Carol Crawford), the White House and the US Dept. of the Census — were able thus so simply, and at such immediate, nuclear scale, to destroy the reputation of someone identified since 1990 as a major American voice. So: this can happen to any American voice. These ill-dressed, ill-spoken, banal careerist ciphers, cost me so much. I re-trained for almost a decade, in the middle of my life, to teach. It is all I had ever really wanted to do with my life. Now I will never be able to be the only thing I ever wanted to be — a Professor of English Literature at a university.

I am now sixty. It’s too late for me. Twitter, in collusion with the Biden administration, cost me my hard-won lifelong dream. I’ve been maligned and censored by Twitter since 2021. Even if the company eventually settles my lawsuit against it, and even though Mr Musk has “let” me back on the platform, that would be, this is, no victory. Twitter has not sent an advisory to all of the news outlets around the world that depicted me, at Twitter’s own direction, as crazy, that they were wrong to have done so; there has been no press release stating that they erred, and that I was right, and that they are sorry for wrongly abusing my reputation — and for destroying women and babies. No, forever I will remain “deplatformed from Twitter for misinformation” in the cybersphere, even though it is finally being established that sadly I was deplatformed for telling God’s truth.

It is unlikely that any university at this point would see past the grotesque imprint on my bio that Twitter, via the White House, CDC and perhaps the FBI, has taken care to embed in my bio, and in articles about me, around the world. It is unlikely, too, that I will ever recoup the six figure investments that investors withdrew from my company when Twitter, colluding with the government, was orchestrating the shredding of my reputation. It is unlikely that a 35 years career and legacy online of what had been seen until very recently as a life of significant accomplishment, can ever be re-established. I try never to complain in public. I try never to show self-pity or weakness, at least not to my enemies. But Twitter’s attacks on me are not over, and I am simply sick of the damage these mediocrities have done to me, and continue to try to do.

I’m forming a Super PAC to Draft RFK Jr. To Run For President (Steve Kirsch)

The federal agencies are so brain damaged it will take major surgery to fix them. Congress clearly isn’t up to the task. We need new leadership in the White House. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to clean up the mess and unite the country than RFK Jr. So I’m putting together a Super PAC to encourage him to run for President on the Democratic side against Biden. If you’d like to help out, please fill out the form here. There will be both volunteer and paid opportunities available. If you have worked for a Super PAC before, it’s especially helpful to me if you register, even if your time is limited.

    [See the full post at: Debt Rattle February 13 2023]


    If you watch Lira’s vid and substitute your own govt. (in my case Australia) for Germany and you substitute Nord Stream for Vaccine you are even more on the target of what is going on. A play for world domination through a little old thing called Reset. Or Build Back after first Burning Down.

    ” Medvedchuk Sees No Prospects For Minsk-3 (TASS)”

    His point is worldwide: a leader who only pretends and represents half of his people, while ignoring and repressing, even actively killing the other half. Is there a nation where this is NOT happening? State of the Union was a good example.

    US Officials Basically Admit They Blew Up Nord Stream – Lavrov (RT)”

    What? Again? Nuland already did after both she and Biden promised they would on camera. …But saying something on camera, then having it happen is a conspiracy theory because – I – know what they really meant and Daddy would never hurt me. They didn’t mean what they actually said: I use my PutinTelepathy to know.

    “attracting private capital for a new investment fund to rebuild Ukraine’s infrastructure that has been destroyed in its war”

    The poster child of “Disaster Capitalism”. The “Broken Window” isn’t a fallacy if I’m the window repairman. It’s straight profit. It’s a loss for “society”, the Commons, but who cares about that?

    “ever since Prime Minister Viktor Orban refused to align with the WEF Western Democracies”

    These are power groups with aligning interests. I represent them as cohesive, but always even one side’s generals disagree and have different priorities and styles. So they are WEF-run in a way, but also follow London’s MacKinder. It’s not that it’s false, it’s part of their wider worldview that they agree on. That’s why the WEF/CCP twinship is disturbing. …Neither of which is actually communist, if you please, although both widely claim they are. The new improved, kinder, gentler version, “Social Equity” or whatever dumb s–t I have to say to get you to do what I want, work for nothing, get hosed, and I take your money for free.

    Orban should say they are coming to murder all Hungarians and to prepare. As they will shell it non-stop now, he should express in the gravest terms to buy all the food, fuel, etc, they can and get some militias going. Arming every Venezuelan by buying 200,000 AKs seemed to work for them. No invasion.

    “Starlink remained available for military communications in Ukraine, even though as a private company SpaceX had the right to switch the terminals off.”

    Private companies superseding governments, having their own armies, secret services, etc. This is the prototype and beta test and is going well. As they say, BlackRock owns Ukraine. Or rather the reverse: they are the “same people” in both chairs with interlocking interests: they get your money, you die in a hole.

    “The Starlink system was hailed by US officials as a gamechanger for the Ukrainian military,”

    Whenever I hear the word “Gamechanger” my brain shuts off because it is never, ever, ever, never true. As it wasn’t this time either, AND the author knows it, AND still wrote it. “Bombshell! Walls are closing in!”

    “Musk and Shotwell had only two options: they could either be on Ukraine’s side and not seek “ways to do harm” or be counted as pro-Russian.”

    Really? According to who? People who nobody cares about and don’t matter? Wow, I’m super worried about what the Economics minister of the Seychelles thinks about my new car. Aren’t you? And so with Ukraine. Who? Is that a country in Europe or something? GFY and Make Me.

    “Big Oil Rakes In Record Profits (RT) “

    Okay. Are they? What I’ve seen previously, and my memory may be faulty, is that they make the profits of a grocery store, like 8%, for years and years. Congress then screws around with them, changes permissions and taxes so they “Control the means of production” and they lose billions in sunk investments. Then comes a year when they actually make some money—which is mostly unreported inflation which is running +15% and not 5% – and Congress then cries “Windfall profits!!!” Yeah, over the previous 12 years you were dicking them you added from 8% profit you can barely get the stock market to pay attention to you, and it becomes 9.5% Super-wow. How about I just close all the investments, stop drilling and see how that feels for ya? Why don’t we get AOC and McConnell down here with some coveralls on in -10F in North Dakota and tell me how everyone makes too much money?

    What they need is STABILITY. Predictability. And they have intentionally poisoned the well long-term for that, insuring high prices, not low ones, and prices which will kill everyone but especially the poor, the supported (no longer actual) DNC base.

    A thing to think about. The only thing worse would be to nationalize it, which is/was Germany’s plan, taxing at 99% rate, as not only do they suck at everything and have never had a program work in 250 years of trying, but we know for a fact are openly advocating killing everyone by shutting off their heat. I don’t know about you, but when my neighbor says he’s going to burn down my house, goes on and on about it every time we meet, it gets my d—n attention. Especially when I’ve been seeing matches and brushfires lately.

    “• Ray McGovern Comments on Sy Hersh (Garland Nixon) “

    Since race is the foremost and only important characteristic of humans, Garland Nixon is a Black Conservative. There, I finally paid attention to it and didn’t forget. That means what he says is true and important because: melanin, so you now have no choice but to obey, that’s racial #Equality.

    “A fairer economy would avoid excessive exploitation and extremes of inequality;”

    Great! What does that mean? “Good things are good”? No: what happens next is “–I– am the arbiter of what is good and bad, what is equality and inequality, who is the “extreme” or the “excessive”. You must all shut up and do what I say.” I am super smart and good and you are all stupid and evil.

    How about this that is much easier to prove: IT WAS ALL AGAINST THE LAW. Laws on bribery. On theft. On registering purchases. On paying taxes. On fraud and misrepresentation. On monopolies, on racketeering. On unequal application of the law. THAT I can prove and has a 1,000 year body of history. That’s not “greed”– whatever that is. Like “Drunkenness” it’s going further than –I– think is modest and right. We don’t have to navel-gaze and wonder if it was “extreme” or “exploitative”, it was merely illegal under 1,000 years of law and custom.

    Now would someone like to bring that case and start arresting now?

    And THAT is why you’re going to get a violent denouement.

    May already destroyed this. The whole point of Brexit was to relieve regulation, get their resources back (like fishing grounds), lower taxes, and employ people. Ireland already demonstrates this works. May destroyed any momentum from private investment to take advantage of that, so they get the worst of both worlds: All the regulation and corruption of the EU, but without any representation (not that there is any there). MissTruss re-proved this is the top 100% A-1 priority to the powers of Britain as she tried a very boring, moderate, limp attempt at that, and they went nuclear and deposed her.

    “Ukraine has practically ceased to exist as a state.”

    Ukraine was stolen by the Americans and their Jewish puppet a long time ago. The Jewish puppet has done his best to terrorise the real people of Ukraine with war controlled by his puppet masters, the USA, the Democrat party controlled by his Jewish brothers. You may as well describe the Ukraine as the golden state of the USA, what other state receives so much cash stolen from the US tax payer?


    He’s selling his country by the pound.

    They pretend to be fighting for Ukraine but they are really keeping the war going to steal everything that can possibly be stolen from Ukraine until the country does not exist any more. A massive theft operation – the same as they are still planning to happen to Russia – teamed with the Jewish FTX and their Democrat untouchable crooks, organised by the Democrat tribe in the USA, the one that will get funding from Israel to out campaign any anti-Israel candidate. The party that makes anti-semitism a special crime against the chosen ones, who make holocaust denial a special crime against the chosen ones, that have the tribe in Twitter to censor the anti woke, yet some on here still believe there is not such thing as groups …. ask Israel about groups, they will explain.

    They stole Ukraine like they stole Palestine and now they want to steal Russia. Same project.

    How about this that is much easier to prove: IT WAS ALL AGAINST THE LAW. Laws on bribery. On theft. On registering purchases. On paying taxes. On fraud and misrepresentation. On monopolies, on racketeering.

    But I thought capitalism works best “laissez-faire,” no regulation, no government interference, only the “invisible hand?”

    I disagree with “greed is good.” It is good when people shoulder up responsibility for themselves, for their dependents. People need to be responsible for themselves because only they can truly understand what their own needs and wants are. Self-interest does not need to be “enlightened,” it is practical. But “self-interest” exists on a continuum. We are humans; we are social. We need other humans, we need the natural world, we need economies to meet our needs. Individually, we are also parts of larger groups, and our survival also depends upon the survival of these larger groups. We need balance between between meeting our own needs and promoting the well-being of the group. “Self-interest” becomes “greed” when it is championed at the expense of others’ well-being, at the expense of the greater whole. Healthy self-interest also promotes the well-being of the whole. Groups can also trample on the well-being of individuals, urging them to act in ways that do not respect individual needs (like the Covid and subsequent vaccine debacle.)

    The same reports to flee was previously reported February 14, 2022
    Ukraine’s oligarchs fleeing the country

    By Cameron Jones in Kyiv
    February 14, 2022

    Ukraine’s richest men are fleeing the country with their families as the number of private jet charters jump after the possibility of war spiked in recent days, according to flight traffic information posted on social media on February 13.

    Michael Bociurkiw, an analyst at the Atlantic Council, tweeted on February 13 that, “Ukrainian oligarchs and business folks were leaving Ukraine on charter flights, with about 20 charters and private jets departing from Kyiv on Sunday alone.”

    He linked an article from Ukrainska Pravda to the tweet, which used the website Flightradar24 as their source for citing the 20 chartered flights.

    Switzerland, Austria and the south of France were the most popular destinations for the charter flights.

    Ukrainska Pravda stated that such an exodus on charter flights hasn’t been witnessed in six years of observations. The publication reported that planes belonging the country’s top oligarchs, including Rinat Akhmetov, Viktor Pinchuk, and Boris Kolesnikov, as having left the country. A private plane for 50 people was also ordered by Igor Abramovich, another top business figure.

    Some, such as Vasiliy Khmelnitskiy, founder of holding company UFuture, announced they have left for business reasons only, with Khmelnitskiy adding that his children remain in Ukraine. Kolesnikov also stated that he himself was in Kyiv and would remain in the city this week. Rinat Akhmetov has been out of the country since January 30, leaving for Zurich on business.

    The mood on the streets of Kyiv and Kharkiv remains calm but public concerns on the looming war was fuelled after it was announced that flight insurance will no longer be issued to airlines transiting Ukraine from February 14. All commercial air traffic through Ukraine may be halted as a result.

    The government pledged $590mn guarantee to cover premiums over the weekend to keep the airlines running, the Kyiv Independent reports. Richer Ukrainians were simply hiring their own planes to leave.

    The coming week will see major Russian military exercises ongoing in Belarus and Russian naval drills in the Black and Azov Seas. Fears of a war soared after a briefing by White House national-security adviser Jake Sullivan on February 12, who said that an invasion of Ukraine could happen “any day.”

    Many have speculated that these drills are in fact cover for an invasion of Ukraine by Russia and Belarus. Russia denies it will attack Ukraine and has accused the West of hysteria.

    But many of the well off are making prudential preparations. bne IntelliNews sources confirm that two residential English tutors, both British citizens, working for an MP and a businessman respectively, will leave for the south of France this week. Neither confirmed that the flights had anything to do with increased fears over an invasion, as both families travel regularly with their staff for work holidays. Even last month, when the war drums began to beat more loudly for the first time, tutors and teachers working at private schools in Kyiv reported a large number of children absent, away on holidays.

    The Buildup To War In Ukraine – February 13 2022
    In early 2022 Ukraine had finished the preparations for an overwhelming attack on the renegade People Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LNR).

    Half of the Ukrainian army, some 120,000 men recruited and trained during the last 7 years, were stationed near the ceasefire line and ready to go. On the opposing side only some 40,000 men were under arms. They would have little chance to withstand an onslaught.

    Russia could not let a Ukrainian attack happen. If Ukraine could regain the renegade provinces it would have been able to join NATO. Russian public opinion was decisively on the side of the Russian speaking DNR and LPR. It would surely demand an intervention. Since the 2014 coup in Kiev some four million Ukrainians had already moved to Russia. There are lots of family ties between the two countries. In sight of this Russia had put some of its own forces on alert and had moved weapons and munition to assembling points near the Ukrainian border.

    The U.S. had for months warned of an upcoming Russian attack on Ukraine. It could do that because it knew the Ukraine would attempt to regain the republics by force. It knew that Russia would have to respond.

    On Sunday February 13 2022, after a phone call with U.S. president Joe Biden, the Ukrainian president Zelensky gave the final order for the planned Ukrainian attack.

    That the decision had been made was immediately leaked in London as well as in Kiev.

    In its summary of the day the Guardian listed a lot of activities that were consistent with the imminent start of a conflict. Diplomats and foreign military were moved out of Ukraine. Weapons flew in.

    Tipped off by its government the British insurance conglomerate Lloyd stopped reinsurance services for anything Ukraine:

    Anatoliy Ivantsiv, head of Ukrainian insurance firm Expo, told Interfax that British reinsurance giant Lloyds announced it would temporarily cease all conflict risk insurance over Ukrainian airspace from Feb. 14.
    When the news of the attack order leaked in Kiev, its ‘elite’ oligarchs and some parliament members were ready to leave. On February 13 and 14 they fled the country:

    But I thought capitalism works best “laissez-faire,” no regulation, no government interference, only the “invisible hand?”

    “laissez-faire,” no regulation, no government interference = oppressive actions?

    ie. capitalism = rampant unchecked oppression?

    So basically you’re saying – here’s your capitalism and aha, there’s the oppression?

    the basis of capitalism is freely trading value for value without coercion

    so what square do you circle to implicitly argue that it is lawless oppression?

    you go back to Hammurabi, as far back as you can find any written law – which would reflect previous custom – and you get a whole bunch of rules limiting coercion – doing violence to people, killing them, lying, cheating people. Whether the society was democratic or not.

    A typical scenario in human society is that someone DOES out-compete everyone else for power. That someone then OWNS what they conquered. Unless they are an idiot, they manage it. Part of that is crushing all the competing predators. And then doing the things that make the sheep prosper- which incidentally would make them happier. You don’t come home from work, smash all your dishes, and emit an Evil Villain laugh for having established Full Spectrum Dominance of your kitchen – it’s yours. Same as a shepherd would do for a flock of sheep.

    And you can see when someone like that takes over – Augustus, Claudius, and so on – everyone is happier, more prosperous, there’s a flourishing of the arts and sciences. Yes, even the slaves of Roman times had improved lives under Augustus and Claudius, because it was obvious that society and therefore the ruler was LOSING value due to how slavery was being handled -and of course the ultimate end of the road on that line of improvement is total end of slavery. Just like making all the Italians Roman citizens and then making everyone in the Empire Roman citizens.

    An incredibly valuable book – The Arms of Krupp by William Manchester mentions that the Krupp forced labor camps were WORSE than the official government ones. Worse! There’s a bit where Hitler actually objects to how bad Jews are being treated in the Krupp camps. (holy #%^&) How are they even going to manufacture armaments they way you are treating them? Not to say Hitler wasnt so bad – not at all, but when Hitler is putting a hand on your shoulder going “bro, not cool” you KNOW you’ve entered a really, REALLY bad place.

    But the logical outcome along that reasoning is that those forced workers become full citizens not being treated any differently. Your actual Krupp non slave workers are putting out more material of better quality you idiots. Make MORE of those.

    And doing Marxist stuff like persecuting the persecutors and punching down at the punching downers and all that – not necessary. All that is necessary is that you extend the citizenship franchise – which just so happens to be EXACTLY the solution that has always worked and EXACTLY in line with bare-bones capitalism. We’re all better off when people can trade value for value without coercion.

    Marxism says there is oppression and the solution is coercion – but coercion IS oppression.

    The extent to which you can – in the real world, always imperfectly – allow trading value for value freely without coercion – is the degree to which societies thrive.

    Various democratic/republican institutions are just trying to replace a ruler with a constitution, figuring you might get a Marcus Aurelius, but you might get a Caligula, so it’s better to create a kind of structured, balanced “ruler” that we swear allegiance to defend instead, a ruler that – like any GOOD human ruler – tries to maintain the ability of human beings to, of their own free will, trade value for value – or refuse to – without coercion.

    I will say I think the marxists were really onto something

    I was talking with a chemistry phd friend of mine complaining that canning jar lids only last a certain amount of time. I was theorizing various things -vacum sealing them, maybe with oxygen absorbers? He observed that something IN the lids itself perhaps would cause the breakdown. The seeds of its own destruction were there inside of it.

    Clearly Marxism as historically practiced for 100+ years doesn’t work, because they always resort to slavery rather quickly, and that slavery lasts until they collapse. So that’s a non starter.

    BUT they are onto something. They’re working the problem. Capitalism degrades to a point where people AREN’T freely trading value for value without coercion. Is the seed of destruction of Captalism WITHIN it? Is it like a barbarian invader?

    Marxists need to stop trying to do the same thing again with slightly different vocabulary/rebranding. Same way Republicans need to stop saying “we wanna do that Reagan Thing again.”

    If they backed all the way up, really looked all their mistakes in the face as THEIR mistakes (rather than blaming the working class, society, The System, etc) REALLY examine their mistakes, take what they have, and progress from there, they might come up with something amazing, useful, groundbreaking, workable.

    But then they would probably no longer be Marxists. They would be some new, awesome, better thing…. but no longer Marxists.

    There’s a thing in Dune about a man will let himself die rather than be forced to become something else.

    I just caught up a little on the Ohio chemical spill. Holy @#%$^ing #$*@(%.

    I saw one tweet saying “where are all the environmental activists?”

    oh sir. I am so sorry sir.

    For the NEW environmentalists, killing humans is good. So when a cloud of chemicals kills animals in a 100 mile radius and there’s humans around, that’s a good thing.

    If you were prospering and being happy, clearly having self-esteem and pursuing goals you chose yourself, accomplishing things, they’d show up to protest the things they’ve pinpointed as being necessary to that

    At the very least you should be alive but sullen, inactive, depressed, un-vibrant. But better than that is you dead, so no protestors for Ohio, sorry.

    On what was to become Airstrip Two, The Curse of the Corporations began to emerge in the early nineteenth century, when boatloads of poor people were loaded onto ships in what was to become Airstrip One, and dumped on the shoreline, to ‘develop the land and facilitate extraction of resources and transfer them back to what was to become Airstrip One.

    The chemical fire that has been releasing hydrochloric acid into the air in February 2023 is just the latest of a long history of extraction of resources, conversion of resources into toxic shit and release of that toxic shit into the environment, which started to get into high gear when Rockefeller set up primitive oil refineries in the 1860s and poured the unwanted byproducts of refining into the nearest stream because it was more profitable to operate that way.

    On what was to become Airstrip Five, The Curse of the Corporations began to emerge in the early nineteenth century, when boatloads of poor people were loaded onto ships in what was to become Airstrip One, and dumped on the shoreline, to ‘develop the land and facilitate extraction of resources and transfer back to Airstrip One.

    The carnage associated with the remnant of Cyclone Gabrielle in February 2023 is just the latest of a long history of extraction of resources, conversion of resources into toxic shit and release of that toxic shit into the environment, which started to get into high gear when Rothschild Banking Empire set up loans for the New Zealand Company to construct a rail system to extract resources. in the 1870s and pour the unwanted byproducts of resource extraction into the nearest stream because it was more profitable to operate that way.

    The really clever aspect of the corporations’ plan was to get the ignorant Proles to love the corporations and defend to the death the activitiesof the corporations.

    That is The Ultimate Curse of the Corporations: Proles defending the activities of the coprorations because they love the corporations.

    Obviously, severe storms raise remediation costs and to the extent they are insured, insurance companies pay those bills. And with reinsurers wary of taking on more risk, the insurers themselves face higher risk. Premiums are rising. By just how much was revealed by IAG in some public filings today. In New Zealand they raised premiums by +10.1% last year and said that was “largely due to rate increases” rather than winning new clients. As a consequence, they report their “insurance margin rose to 15.2%, up from 11.4%”, although to be fair that was before these latest rise in ‘perils’. They used the general ‘climate change’ narrative to bolster margins significantly, and from a dominant market position. Given that front-running, it is their turn to absorb the current spike in claims costs in 2023. They will do that, however they will undoubtedly use these events to hike premiums aggressively again. Front-running is a wonderful position for a dominant insurer. Oh, and by the way, IAG said its after tax profits rose +170% from the first half of 2021 to the first half of 2022.’

    So if Black Rock owns Ukraine (and I have no doubts about that) then that explains why the United States is fighting so hard for Ukraine. It’s because Black Rock (i.e. it’s largest investors) which is well known to own the U.S., is simply using it like a junkyard dog to defend Black Rock’s investment property in Nazi-Land.
