UN Should Investigate US ’Empire Of Lies’ – Duma Speaker (RT)

The UN should open an investigation into Washington’s crimes against humanity, Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin suggested on Sunday. Writing on Telegram on the 20th anniversary of the infamous 2003 speech by then-US Secretary of State Colin Powell at the United Nations Security Council, during which he justified the ill-fated invasion of Iraq, Volodin offered a scathing criticism of what he described as the American “empire of lies.” According to the speaker of the lower house of Russia’s parliament, this date marks “one of the biggest deceptions of the global community by the United States.” He recalled that during the landmark UN Security Council meeting Powell “accused Iraq of producing weapons of mass destruction, providing a vial with ‘white powder’ as proof.” At the time, the US secretary of state said the vial could be used to store anthrax.

While the UN did not approve the Iraq invasion, the US attacked the country anyway, he added. “Half a million civilians fell victims, the president was executed, the country was gone,” Volodin wrote, pointing out that Powell later admitted that the vial stunt was “a hoax,” but Washington was never held to account.“All policies of the United States and the collective West are based on lies,” the Duma speaker stressed. He noted that the same applied to NATO’s promises not to expand eastwards after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc, as well as to the 2014 and 2015 Minsk Agreements. The latter were signed by Russia, Ukraine, France, and Germany in a bid to pave the way for peace in Ukraine by granting the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics special status within the Ukrainian state.

These accords “also turned out to be a deception – but [former German Chancellor Angela] Merkel and [former French President Francois] Hollande acted as Powell did”, Volodin said. He was referring to the bombshell confessions by the two ex-leaders, who admitted in December that the Minsk Agreements were simply meant “to give Ukraine time” to strengthen its army. “The UN should investigate Washington’s crimes against humanity. And the decision-makers should be punished for the millions of victims, refugees, broken destinies, destroyed states,” Volodin added.

West ‘Blocked’ Russia-Ukraine Peace Process – Former Israeli PM (RT)

Peace might’ve been agreed between Russia and Ukraine shortly after the start of the conflict, but Kiev’s Western backers blocked the negotiations between the two neighbors, former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who mediated those contacts, has said. Bennet, who gave an almost five-hour-long video interview to Israel’s Channel 12 on Saturday, claimed that his efforts as a middleman came close to succeeding as both Moscow and Kiev appeared to be ready to make concessions and agree to a truce. It didn’t happen because “I think there was a legitimate decision by the West to keep striking [Russian President Vladimir] Putin… I mean the more aggressive approach,” he said. When asked by the host if the US and its allies “blocked” the peace process between Moscow and Kiev, the former PM replied: “Basically, yes. They blocked it.”

“I claim there was a good chance of reaching a ceasefire. But I’m not claiming it was the right thing,” he clarified. Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reacted to the revelations by the Israeli politician on Telegram, saying that they were “yet another confession” that the West wasn’t interested in peace in Ukraine. According to Bennett, his mediation “was coordinated down to the last detail with the US, France and Germany.” After the conflict broke out last February, there was no unified approach on how to deal with it among Western leaders as “[British PM] Boris Johnson adopted the aggressive line; [German Chancellor Olaf] Scholz and [French President Emmanuel] Macron were more pragmatic, and [US President Joe] Biden was both,” he said.

Some 17 or 18 drafts of the peace deal between Moscow and Kiev had been prepared with his involvement, the former PM said. Bennet claimed that, among other things, he managed to secure a pledge from Putin that he was “not going to kill [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky,” who feared for his life. The Russian leader was also ready to retract his demand for the demilitarization of Ukraine, while Zelensky promised to give up on his aspirations to join NATO, he added. All discussion about peace ended on April 1, 2022 when the Ukrainian authorities accused the Russian military of killing civilians in the Kiev suburb of Bucha, Bennet pointed out.

The claim by Kiev – which Moscow rejected and described as being fabricated – came shortly after the two sides held a high-profile meeting in Istanbul and appeared to have been making progress towards an agreement. Russian and Ukrainian representatives haven’t met at the negotiating table since then. Moscow maintains that it’s ready to resolve the crisis through diplomatic means but says that the peace proposals being voiced by Kiev and its Western backers have so far been unacceptable.

“At least 17 drafts of the agreement between Russia and Ukraine were prepared by the parties before the West interrupted their negotiations” — former Israeli PM Naftali Bennett

Putin Promised Not To Kill Zelensky – Former Israeli PM (RT)

Russian President Vladimir Putin told former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that he would not have Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky assassinated, Bennett revealed to Israeli media. The former PM flew to Moscow at the request of Zelensky, who declared that he was “not afraid of anyone,” only after Putin assured his safety. Bennet traveled to Moscow last March, in a failed bid to broker an early ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine. That trip was made at the request of Zelensky, he told Israel’s Channel 12 on Saturday. With Russian forces surrounding Kiev, Zelensky was reportedly hiding in an undisclosed location at the time of the meeting. Bennett told Channel 12 that the Ukrainian leader had tasked him with securing an assurance from Putin that he would not be targeted for assassination.


“Are you going to kill Zelensky?” Bennett asked Putin. The Russian president said that he would not, to which Bennett again asked for his word that he wouldn’t have the Ukrainian president killed. Putin gave his word, Bennett said. Bennett said that he called Zelensky immediately after leaving the Kremlin, telling him “he’s not going to kill you.” Zelensky asked for confirmation, and Bennett told him that he was “one hundred percent” sure that Putin would not have him eliminated. Two hours later, Zelensky posted a video from his office in Kiev, explaining that he was “not hiding,” and “not afraid of anyone.” The video address was described as “defiant” by Western media outlets, but it was unknown until now that Zelensky essentially asked Putin permission – via Bennett – to reveal his location before making his statement. Bennett described Putin as “smart and sharp,” and a supporter of the Jewish people.

However, he said that the Russian leader’s demeanor became cold when Zelensky and his officials were mentioned, with Putin describing them as “Nazis” and “warmongers.” The former PM – who shared office with Yair Lapid until stalwart conservative Benjamin Netanyahu returned to power in December – said that “everything” he did on his trip to Moscow was “coordinated with the United States, Germany and France.” Bennett’s interview came a day after French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Anne-Claire Legendre confirmed that President Emmanuel Macron “mainly” spoke to Putin by phone at the request of Zelensky. Meanwhile, as the leaders of France and Israel carried his messages to Moscow, Zelensky himself publicly declared that he would never talk to Putin, and forbade his officials from engaging in any negotiations with the Russian leader.

Strong story.

Israeli ex-PM Confirmed ‘Peace Had No Chance’ In Ukraine – Reporter (RT)

Former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s admission that his efforts to broker a peace deal in Ukraine were ultimately vetoed by the West proves that Kiev’s backers had no interest in a peaceful resolution, author and war correspondent Thomas Roeper told RT on Sunday. In a five-hour interview with Israel’s Channel 12 on Saturday, Bennett explained that a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine had been all but agreed in March of last year, until the US and its allies decided to “keep striking [Russian President Valdimir] Putin” and “blocked” the agreement. Bennett’s admission “confirms what was until now ‘Russian propaganda,’” Roeper told RT. When the West decided that it “didn’t want to end this war,” it became clear that peace “had no chance,” he added.

Moscow blamed Kiev for the abrupt severing of last spring’s talks, while Kiev insisted that it never refused to negotiate. Although Ukraine would go on to blame the breakdown in communications on the alleged discovery of bodies in the Kiev suburb of Bucha in April, the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper later stated that the Ukrainian side pulled out at the direct request of Britain’s prime minister at the time, Boris Johnson. The deputy leader of Türkiye’s ruling party, Numan Kurtulmus, has also come out and said that a deal was close at hand last spring, but the US and its allies “didn’t want” this to happen. “I haven’t seen any serious efforts to find a diplomatic solution since 2014,” Roeper remarked, referring to the year when the first of the now-defunct Minsk Agreements were signed.

Under these 2014 and 2015 accords, which were backed by Paris and Berlin, Ukraine agreed to grant the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics special status within the Ukrainian state. However, the former leaders of France, Germany, and Ukraine have all recently admitted that these agreements were intended to buy Ukraine time to rearm in order to quash pro-Russian separatism in these regions by force. Speaking to RT on Sunday from Tel Aviv, Russian-Israeli journalist Nick Kolyohin said that Bennett’s interview shows who is ultimately responsible for Kiev’s decisions. “Until the West understands that it is in its favor to reach a peace agreement with Russia, it won’t happen,” he said. “The real boss is far away and is located in Washington DC. This is where the decision will be made, and not by Ukraine and even not by Europe.”

Zelensky Admits Situation In DPR Difficult For Ukrainian Troops (TASS)

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has admitted that the situation for Ukrainian troops in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) where fighting is underway is very difficult. “We are observing this increased pressure on various front lines as well as the pressure in the information field. It is very tough in the Donetsk Region – the clashes are fierce. Yet no matter how hard it is and regardless of pressure we should stand our ground,” he said in his video address to the nation aired on Sunday night. Earlier, acting DPR Head Denis Pushilin said that heavy fighting was raging in Artyomovsk’s (called Bakhmut in Ukraine) neighborhoods that used to be controlled by the Ukrainian army. Bloomberg reported on Thursday, citing US and EU officials, that Western countries recommended Kiev stall for time, amass forces and wait for the Leopard tanks it had been promised in order to launch an offensive in the spring, even sacrificing Artyomovsk at this point.

Death Toll In Ukrainian Strike On Donetsk Rises – Authorities (RT)

A Ukrainian artillery strike on the Russian city of Donetsk which took place on Saturday killed at least three people, according to the local authorities. Writing on Telegram on Sunday, Mayor Aleksey Kulemzin said that while clearing the debris of a residential block in the northern Kievsky District, the body of a 30-year-old woman was found. Two hours later, he said that another body was uncovered from the rubble, describing the deceased as a man, but providing no further details. The Emergencies Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) confirmed the information, adding that rescue operations are still underway. A day earlier, Kulemzin stated that a 36-year-old man’s body was recovered from the rubble, noting that preliminary data indicates that up to five people could be stuck under the debris.

This came after the mayor said that 155mm-caliber rounds and ten missiles were fired at the city. Kulemzin said projectiles landed on several streets, hitting a four-story residential block among other buildings, destroying the roof. The DPR and LPR, along with two other former Ukrainian regions, joined Russia following referendums last year. The city of Donetsk has been shelled continuously by Ukrainian forces since 2014, when the DPR and the neighboring Lugansk People’s Republic refused to recognize the Western-backed coup in Kiev. The attacks intensified after Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine in February 2022. In January, the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC), which monitors attacks on the two Donbass regions, reported that since the large-scale hostilities broke out, Kiev’s strikes have killed more than 4,000 civilians in the DPR alone. The JCCC has put the death toll for the LPR for the same period at 169 civilians.

“If a total embargo is announced, it is a guarantee of further price increases. I think this is [going in] a very bad direction..”

EU Taking ‘Big Step Towards Military Escalation’ – Hungarian Official (RT)

The new EU Parliament resolution calling for more Western arms to Ukraine and a full energy embargo on Russia would only add fuel to the conflict between Moscow and Kiev and prove detrimental to the European economy, Csaba Domotor, the secretary of state in the Hungarian prime minister’s office, has said. On Thursday, the bloc’s legislature approved a non-binding document encouraging member states to adopt a tenth package of sanctions against Moscow as soon as possible. Among the measures being proposed are an embargo on imports of fossil fuels and uranium from Russia, further arms shipments to Ukraine, and for the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines to “be completely abandoned.” The EU Parliament is also seeking to target oil company Lukoil and Russia’s nuclear agency Rosatom.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Domotor blasted the resolution, noting that it includes two “most serious” points. The first provision calling for military aid to Ukraine to be increased and accelerated is “anything but a call for peace. Rather, it is a big step towards military escalation,” he said. Meanwhile, an embargo on fossil fuels and uranium from Russia would essentially mean a complete ban on imports of gas and nuclear fuel from the country, Domotor pointed out. Should the European Parliament impose these restrictions, they would “not only support the previous sanctions, but also inflation,” which is largely attributable to skyrocketing energy prices, the official warned.

“If a total embargo is announced, it is a guarantee of further price increases. I think this is [going in] a very bad direction,” Domotor stressed. Hungary, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy, has long been critical of the sanctions the West has imposed on Moscow over the Ukraine conflict. It has argued that the restrictions have adversely impacted the EU economy but failed to meaningfully weaken Russia. Budapest has also refrained from supplying Ukraine with arms while signaling last month that it would veto any EU sanctions targeting Russian nuclear energy.

Kiev Plans To Undermine Medical Centers In Kramatorsk To Accuse Russia (TASS)

The Kiev regime is plotting a provocation in Kramatorsk with undermining medical establishments to later accuse Russia of committing ‘war crimes,’ Russia’s coordination headquarters for humanitarian response in Ukraine said on Sunday. According to verified information from several independent sources, Ukrainian special services are hatching to stage a large-scale provocation to accuse Russia of committing war crimes, it said. “For these ends, the Kiev regime plans to undermine the buildings of the Kramatorsk drug rehab and cancer clinics (Alexey Tikhy Street, 31) and the first city hospital (Alexey Tikhy Street, 17) to accuse Russia of delivering an allegedly ‘targeted strike’ on civilian facilities,” the headquarters said, adding that Western journalists accompanied by officers of the Ukrainian Security Service have already arrived in the city and have checked in at the Sapfir hotel. “Personnel have been evacuated from these medical establishments and have been switched to a remote work mode,” it added.

“As an attempt to bribe Russia, it is of course a ridiculous offer. Russia is going to remove the Ukraine as a threat. Totally. And there is some very solid other evidence for saying this.”

Pontius Pilate in the White House (Batiushka)

The US proxy war against Russia via the useful idiots of the Ukrainian puppet-elite was not so much about destroying Russia as weakening China from the north. For the US, China is the only real rival on the world scene. It is overtaking the US in terms of GNP, it is taking over Africa and Australia. China is the main manufacturing nation in BRICS and the SCO, which are replacing/have replaced the G7 club of US vassals. Korea and Japan will also fall to China and, frankly, all the Western Pacific will too. For the US, Russia is only a way of getting at China. China is the Superpower and Taiwan is the Ukraine of China. After nearly one year of the proxy war in the Ukraine, the US elite has realised that its Great Game in the Ukraine was an error. Attacking through the Ukraine will destroy neither Russia, nor, above all, China, which is the real aim.

The Ukraine was meant as a sideshow, but instead it has become a very serious distraction, depleting valuable military resources in a long and unsuccessful campaign. The war there is also destroying the West economically through its suicidal anti-Russian sanctions. The hubristic US totally underestimated Russia, as could be seen already in the arrogant claim of Obama on 25 March 2014 that Russia was just ‘a regional power’. Precious US military resources could be more effectively employed in ‘containing’ China, the real rival. Panic and desperation are now seizing the US. The Ukraine has to be dropped like the hot potato it is. Since even the neocons have now realised that the devastated Ukraine is not of any real interest to them, they have to find a face-saving way out.

The US will drop the Ukraine because it is corrupt/not fighting well/keeps losing equipment and will turn its attention to ‘the real enemy’ – China. Currently, there is talk of the CIA Director Burns offering Russia 20% of the Ukraine in return for peace – in other words, more or less the territory it already holds! It may be a false flag (in Russian ‘ytka’, a duck, which is the translation of the French ‘canard’ meaning the same). But the mere fact that this story is even around proves that Washington is testing the water for reactions, watching for ripples after throwing its stone into the ‘duckpond’ and is contemplating dumping the Ukraine. As an attempt to bribe Russia, it is of course a ridiculous offer. Russia is going to remove the Ukraine as a threat. Totally. And there is some very solid other evidence for saying this.

German Politician Thinks Interaction With Russia Necessary (TASS)

Co-chair of Germany’s Left Party Martin Schirdewan thinks that in order to ensure stable peace it is necessary to find a way of interacting with Russia. In an interview with Der Spiegel published on Sunday he said: “If we want stable peace we should find a way of interacting with Russia.” The politician added that he would like to see somebody in the German government who treated this task seriously. That said, he noted that the European Union should be independent both from Russia and the US. However, according to him, even after the Ukrainian conflict, Russia would remain part of Europe. “This is why you should think about the post-war order,” he asserted, adding that it was difficult to do so right now. “We also should define security beyond NATO. Germany, being the largest economy in the EU, should urgently discuss with its European partners as to how to set up Europe’s security on its own,” Schirdewan concluded.

Germany’s EU Partners Mum On Tank Deliveries To Kiev — Politician (TASS)

Secretary-General of Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) Kevin Kuehnert said that Germany’s European partners have been silent after the German government decided to send Leopard 2 tanks from Germany’s military stockpiles to Ukraine in an interview with the ZDF TV channel on Sunday. “Over the last couple of weeks, sometimes there has been an impression that everyone wants to supply [the tanks], Germany alone was not doing this,” he said. “Now we see that Germany undertook specific obligations and a tank company will be delivered indeed. And suddenly it got very quiet around us,” he stressed commenting on the assertion that many European partners have not yet done anything on supplying the Kiev regime with tanks.

That said, he specified that equipment and particularly munitions were limited. “This is not some kind of a huge warehouse of goods where everything is ready while somebody is refusing to deliver it. The supplies are scarce,” the politician concluded. On Saturday, Der Spiegel reported that the German government was actively trying to convince other countries to participate in the military equipment deliveries to Ukraine, however, there had been practically no obligations on the part of its European partners.

On January 25, the German government confirmed that it would send 14 Leopard 2 tanks from Germany’s military stockpiles to Ukraine and issue permits to other countries for their re-export. German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said that the tanks would arrive in Ukraine “by the end of March.” The UK, Poland, France, Norway and Slovakia also announced their plans to provide tanks to Kiev. The Kiev regime is hoping to receive up to 140 tanks from 12 countries in the first batch.

Trump Responds To Claims Chinese Spy Balloons Flew Over US on His Watch (ET)

Former President Donald Trump responded to claims that Chinese regime spy balloons entered U.S. airspace during his administration, saying such alleged events “never happened.” An anonymous U.S. Defense Department official said over the weekend that spy balloons transited over U.S. territory under the Trump administration. But Trump, in a Fox News interview on Sunday, pushed back. “This never happened. It would have never happened,” Trump told the outlet, adding that the Chinese regime “respected us greatly” under his leadership. “It never happened with us under the Trump administration and if it did, we would have shot it down immediately,” added Trump. “It’s disinformation.”

Before the balloon was shot down, Trump on his social media platform Truth Social had called for the U.S. military to shoot down the balloon last week after it was spotted near Billings, Montana. “Now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the ‘heat’ off” the Biden administration, Trump wrote Sunday. “China had too much respect for ‘TRUMP’ for this to have happened, and it NEVER did.” Mark Esper, who served under Trump as secretary of defense, refuted claims about balloons flying over the United States under the previous administration. “I don’t ever recall somebody coming into my office or reading anything that the Chinese had a surveillance balloon above the United States,” he told CNN. “I would remember that for sure.”


John Bolton, a former U.S. national security adviser under Trump, said that he never heard of any spy balloons entering U.S. airspace or hovering over U.S. territory while Trump was in office. Bolton, also a Bush administration official when he was in office, also said that he never heard of anything like this happening before he joined the Trump administration in 2018. “I don’t know of any balloon flights by any power over the United States during my tenure, and I’d never heard of any of that occurring before I joined in 2018,” Bolton told Fox News on Sunday. “I haven’t heard of anything that occurred after I left either.” Responding to claims made over the weekend, Bolton said that the current administration needs to “tell Congress” about any “specific examples.” He added that “I can say with 100 percent certainty not during my tenure.”

“Unequivocally, I have never been briefed on the issue,” added Robert O’Brien, who served as White House national security adviser under Trump. “It never came up,” he said. “If a balloon had come up, we would have known. Someone in the intelligence community would have known, and it would have bubbled up to me to brief the president,” former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell told Fox. “It’s not true. I can refute it,” former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe also said. “The American people can refute it for themselves. Do you remember during the Trump administration, when photographers on the ground and commercial airline pilots were talking about a spy balloon over the United States that people could look up and see, even with the naked eye, and that a media that hated Donald Trump wasn’t reporting?”

Now that vaxx critics talk myocarditis, the pro-vaxx crowd does too. And says there’s more from Covid than vaccines.

This One CANNOT Be Dismissed (Denninger)

The author of the substack is pretty-much spot-on here. This is characteristic of an immune runaway response in the endothelium which we know is a problem with these jabs because it was demonstrated that direct endothelial damage occurred due to the presence of the spike protein even without any other part of the virus back in the fall and winter of 2020. Again, as I have repeatedly pointed out no less than the Salk Institute published a paper on this and while they tried to frame it in the context of Covid infection that was a political and not medical decision and was screamingly obvious on its face, as their analysis and investigation used only the spike. Obviously a Covid infection that results in viremia (that is, virus in the circulation on a systemic basis) will by its nature include the entire virus; that is, the spike and nucleocapsid.

But there are exactly zero injections you can give to someone, anywhere, that will not result in some amount of circulation of the material via the blood. An intramuscular injection by definition is systemic within seconds as muscle tissue is some of the best-perfused in the body and irrespective of exactly where the needle lands the material will be taken up by said tissue and that tissue is supplied with oxygen and nutrients (and the waste products carried away) by the circulation. That this occurs with the Covid jabs was scientifically proved by the biodistribution study Japan insisted be produced (after our FDA did not do so) and which was leaked early on, demonstrating that among other places the product ended up in the ovaries. The only way it could have gotten there is via the circulation.

Unless you can find evidence via toxicology or similar that both of these young men did something else to jointly cause this damage the common element of being jabbed, given the Salk paper and others on this topic that demonstrate direct spike injury to the endothelium must be considered the likely cause. Note that occlusive coronary artery disease (which would be extremely unusual in anyone this young) was not found. The heart attacks, in short, were not caused by a cut-off of circulation on an immediate basis into a region of the heart muscle. Heart attacks of this type occur when electrical conduction is disrupted. If you get lucky the disruption happens in the atrium and you get aFib, which is often symptomatic and can be treated before it causes serious problems.

Untreated aFib over time tends to produce clotting in and around the heart which is extraordinarily dangerous because if one of those breaks off it is in the arterial side of the circulation and very likely to wind up in a coronary artery (you have an immediate heart attack) or brain (you have an immediate occlusive stroke.) But the atriums of the heart are much smaller than the ventricles in terms of their contractive force and electrical impulse (which is why when you look at an EKG that first spike is so much smaller); the much larger element is the ventricle, and if that conduction gets disrupted you go into vFib which immediately cuts off the circulation and, unless you’re immediately attended to and can be shocked back into sinus rhythm you die.

    Knowing East Oregon and that area, they’re not kidding. They never were. They are ranchers and don’t have time to do anything but with purpose and intent. Also imagine being 4 hours from the police station, up a 1 mile driveway, in the middle of the prairie, without a gun. Any animal can take you out. Any human animal can come in. No one will find you for days.

    In short: open season on (rural) humans: come kill all you want, long as you want, stay for vacation. Urban people (wild majority) can’t understand that. If I were a cartel member I’d be there the day disarmament is passed.

    Iran makes trouble, gets earthquake. Earthquake in Turkey, total internet outage, but only in the borders of Italy.

    Balloon saga: “For the United States to insist on using armed force is clearly an excessive reaction.” -China

    Interesting. Since it is normal to down a balloon for safety when they approach the jet ceiling at 39,000ft. What makes this balloon so different, China? And someone pointed out, it had 6 solar panel wings. What did it need all that power for? Power that couldn’t be used from a modern hi-tech battery? So when it left China they knew it would go twice as far?

    “Ukrainian side pulled out at the direct request of Britain’s prime minister at the time, Boris Johnson.”

    Ol Boris is still out there being PM. Flying around, giving orders, making deals. Gosh, that’s odd isn’t it? He was just in the U.S. cutting deals this week.

    ““The real boss is far away and is located in Washington DC. This is where the decision will be made, and not by Ukraine and even not by Europe.”

    Sort of, since only the U.S. has any cash or weapons to spare. We are Europe’s leashed bully. The D.C. gang is fully merged and at the behest of Davos and the WEF. But not to say that Europeans and Davos have anything in common, They are enemies of the common European as well.

    So long as all policies of the Biden administration are merged with Davos and the WEF, All neocons running this part of the Administration are merged with Davos and NATO, you can consider them one and equal. There is no “U.S.” to speak of. We are occupied by a foreign power. No? What was the Steele Dossier? Thanks to Bill, our media is monopolized and run by Murdoch and other foreign interests.

    “It is very tough in the Donetsk Region – ….amass forces and wait for the Leopard tanks it had been promised in order to launch an offensive in the spring”

    Huh? First HE has arranged there can be no retreat in Bakhmut for no special reason: they themselves created this line and therefore sapped all the defensive lines behind them, leaving themselves nowhere to withdraw to. So why can’t they fall back? Nowhere between Bakhmut and Kiev is any better than what they’ve built in Bakhmut. So they have erased all their own mobility on the field. Russia is accommodating them.

    Second, has Zelensky ever BEEN to Ukraine? So they’re going to send tanks out into the fields in the spring? Like when the mud gets 6’ deep? Wtf is coming out of your mouth? This is mere hopium. “We just need to hold out for the tanks”. 6 tanks? 10 tanks? That’s going to break Bakhmut and rout the Russian army? I’d say no one believes them but I was just watching a Ukr Bakhmut review and he said both the tanks would win and Russia was routed.

    One thing that’s highlighted in this war, lies are all non-specific, truth is granular. They say “Valiant Ukraine is winning” (hazy, fact-free) whereas Russia says things like “Ursula says 100,000 Ukrainian ‘officers’ were killed.” Fact. It happened, specific, provable action.

    Just to distinguish between liars and good-faith actors, listen to their sentences: if they are hazy and lacking specifics, move on. That goes for our own side too if they say “Russia is winning” without specifics. Specifics like, “Then why are they only holding 100-200mi inland from the Russian border?”

    “EU Taking ‘Big Step Towards Military Escalation’ – Hungarian Official (RT)”

Look at where we started, now we’re “Long range missiles into Russia”. What could go wrong? They haven’t nuked us yet, right?

    “• Kiev Plans to Undermine Medical Centers in Kramatorsk to Accuse Russia (TASS)

    Signaling. Can’t you see how hard I’m signaling? Listen: unlike a lot of places, the buildings of hospitals are very specific. You can’t blow them up even for show without harming yourself. There’s no way even the (unlikely) PR win is worth it.

    “China is the main manufacturing nation in BRICS and the SCO, which are replacing/have replaced the G7

    Yes but this is BECAUSE of the U.S. It can be reversed in minutes and Trump indeed tried to do so. So anyone explain to me how even now, where they are demonstrably losing solely because they have exported all manufacturing, they STILL refuse to restart U.S. manufacturing and therefore tariff, embargo, and weaken China? ‘Cause it looks a lot like they’re on China’s side if they don’t, leaving us helpless. It’s like they say we’re in a war with them, but we’ll use anything but bullets.

    “as could be seen already in the arrogant claim of Obama on 25 March 2014 that Russia was just ‘a regional power’.”

    Russia IS a regional power: they are entirely incapable of moving their army into even Europe as it moves on Russia-gauge trains. BUT – and here’s the point – Obama went into HIS region, 5,000 miles from home. And said he would win any war in HIS backyard. That’s so dumb it defies words. Is Russia a world power? It’s hard to say what that means, but since they can take out the United States in 30 minutes I’d have to say yes. That’s the Big Guy, far away, and with total destruction.

    “Washington is testing the water for reactions,”

    It would seem this has something to do with the “cleaning house” in the Ze administration, since no intelligent person could believe it has to do with “corruption.” Again: what corruption? Yes, they are, but no specifics are offered, which means it’s a lie, not the real reason.

    German Politician Thinks Interaction With Russia Necessary (TASS) “

    Very weak sauce. He’s essentially saying “How about it that we don’t ALL DIE. Anybody with me here?” No takers. I’d say that’s worthless, but I guess somebody has to say it and start somewhere?

    “That said, he specified that equipment and particularly munitions were limited.”

    Now that Germany sends them, few tanks, no armor, no ammunition. Nice. I’m sure Putin will return the Army to Moscow in fear. Listen, either DO, or DON’T. Don’t do and then undermine yourself.

    “last week after it was spotted near Billings, Montana.”

    Explain? No one keeps track of nothing? I know this is 90,000ft, but still…

    saiga antelope” certainly is an alien creature, isn’t it?

    Guar certainly looks like an Auroch, doesn’t it? And no surprise. When the old books talk about the Bull and the power, this is what they have in mind. It’s like a bulldozer, probably nearly unstoppable even with a bullet.

    Okay, This is the same news and important, but what are we NOT seeing? I’d say the far slower slip into AI and Carbon-credits to enforce the wholly-created food shortage. If we buckle to that, we’ve picked a path.


    14,445 excess deaths in 2022 and since the largest state funded Dutch news broadcaster is completely silent about it, protesters put a post-it on their headquarters for every person who died ‘suddenly’.

    Not mentioning it just makes it appear to be part of a conspiracy. Why would the Dutch news broadcaster not mention it when they repeat the news of a motorcycle accident? You telling me that they can cope with one dead person on a motocycle but not 14,445? That does not sound odd at all, so I wonder why people are losing their trust in the people who are now not “news companies” but “hide-the-news companies”. It is a bit like British pantomine except that this time it is the villain pretending that he does not know that the bigger villain is behind him. The villain insist he is not aware of the extra bad guy, yet the alternative press is like the front rows of children screaming at the villain “He’s behind you” but the villain still won’t turn round to discover Pfizer is behind him. Meanwhile the audience reduces in number as Pfizer kills them with its magic potion.


    He secretly told them that Ukraine had lost 257.000 people since the beginning of the conflict.

    Meeting a Ukrainian man under 65 is going to become a rare event. Unless that have all had the sense to get out of that hell hole and camp out elsewhere.


    According to Bennett, his mediation “was coordinated down to the last detail with the US, France and Germany.

    Will Russia ever trust anyone from the western countries ever again? Russians are intelligent, they have obviously been making excuses for the western people, but at some stage they have to realise that those excuses are a mistake, the western people are fucking them over … every single time.


    Does Zelensky get to commit suicide when Ukraine loses?


    Among the measures being proposed are an embargo on imports of fossil fuels and uranium from Russia, further arms shipments to Ukraine, and for the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines to “be completely abandoned.”

    Got to wonder whether AFKTT is an EU advisor …. “Kill them all of force them to live like chimps”. The EU certainly looks sufficiently insane.


    The US will drop the Ukraine because it is corrupt/not fighting well/keeps losing equipment and will turn its attention to ‘the real enemy’ – China.

    What a ridiculous statement. None of that makes sense, it has been corrupt since before 2014, it has been fighting badly since 2014, it has been losing equipment since 2014, and the USA has only just noticed? What a ridiculous idea that the USA only now realised that the DNC was receiving funds from Ukraine. Whatever.


    “This never happened. It would have never happened,” Trump told the outlet, adding that the Chinese regime “respected us greatly” under his leadership. “It never happened with us under the Trump administration and if it did, we would have shot it down immediately,” added Trump. “It’s disinformation.”

    How would Trump even know whether it happened … this stretches credibility a bit too far. Trump probably knew as much about balloons as he did about vaccines and the US debt, which he managed to accelerate. He could have back tracked the vaccine support, but his ego just will not let him do it.

    The group includes 7 crews and more than 100 specialists for rescue operations in the zone of catastrophic destruction. They are equipped with all the necessary equipment for search and rescue of victims.

    In addition, Russian rescuers will deliver an airmobile hospital to the emergency zone. On the basis of this hospital, more than 40 specialists from the Russian Emergencies Ministry will be able to provide local residents with qualified medical care.


    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Marowiecki called on Zelenskyy to “temporarily” transfer the territories of western Ukraine to Poland.

    It’s the same people who put up (and then blew up) the Georgia Guide Stones, that are running all of the really big AI systems.

    What if they are using those AI’s to achieve the goals carved into the stones?

    Sure hope not, because an AI programmed to facilitate a goal, adaptively reprogramming itself to remove all obstacles, sure isn’t going to tell them that a goal it was designed to reach is a rotten idea.

    Am I my brother’s keeper?

    Not really, despite all the rhetoric that comes from ‘Christians’.

    The correct response to looming food shortages is to produce food in home gardens and within communities. However, the controllers have been trying to stamp out home food production and local foraging, whilst promoting increased reliance on corporate systems, for centuries -except for a brief period when Airstrip One’s globalised food systems were nearly brought to a standstill between 1940 and 1943: then the controllers were very much in favour of home gardens and local foraging because they needed to ensure there would be cannon-fodder in the future.

    The local Deceit and Crime organisation (Hurunui District Council), the local local government sector of Airstrip Five, remains fully committed to promoting future starvation via the conversion of pastoral land into concrete-and-asphalt dystopia, accompanied by the mandatory planting of trees that produce no edible fruits.

    Also, very high on the priority list of the various Deceit and Crime organisations that constitute government on Airstrip Five is tourism, especially that involving long international flights and involving long journeys on roads facilitated by the use of fossil-fuel-powered vehicles.

    Judging by what is happening both internationally and locally, it all comes to an ignominious end some time over the next year or so.

    That said, we are always amazed just how adept the controllers are at shifting the deck chairs on the ‘Titanic’ to make it appear that it is not sinking very rapidly.

    The US department of defence is responsible for

    ordered the same way as it orders secret weapons

    COVID is a US secret weapon and the injections result in too many people dying and too few being born.

    @Germ: Surreal… 😮


    Went to the supermarket for a few things I can’t grow. Whilst 99% of the populace have now rejected the masks bollocks, there are still a few diehards. An old fellow front of me, wearing a mask, asked the assistant for cigarettes (kept in a locked cabinet these days, as they should be).

    Does he have a special mask with a large hole in it for smoking?

    I was tempted to ask him but didn’t.

    Now for something completely different, and especially for those who deny CO2-induced Planetary Meltdown, largely induced by utterly corrupt NATOstan governments, but also participated in my most other governments around the world:

    ‘Dire situation gets even more dire

    Sea ice extent is very low at both poles at the moment, and the outlook is that the situation is getting even worse.

    Around Antarctica, sea ice extent was 2.23 million km² on February 2, 2023. Later in February this year, extent looks set to go below the 1.924 million km² all-time record low reached on February 25, 2022.’


    We could change the wording slightly and instead of ‘is getting even worse’ substitute ‘is being made worse’ [by governments all around the world].

    Much the same for Lake Mead, of course. a miserable state of affairs [for industrial humans] is being made worse [by industrial humans].

    As George Carlin so presciently pointed out 20 years ago: “The Earth is fine. It’s the people who are fucked. Pack your bags, folks, were going away.”

    Obviously not before doing a whole lot more damage, though.

    So for fun, posting a break:

    “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

    Sure, that’s called “Charity” and it’s one of the seven virtues.
    “The seven capital virtues are those opposite the seven deadly sins. Chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility.” –Wiki I often comment on the sins, maybe I should focus more on the virtues.

    It’s an expression of Love. In that “Do for the least of them you do for me.” You don’t have to do this new-fangled Christianity, you could look at it as a Jewish mitzvah, making the world better. “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,” –Psalms. There’s about 100 of these in the Bible, and since there’s no family remaining in America, everyone is fatherless, a widow or orphan.

    “The phrase Deus caritas est is translated in the King James Version as: “God is love”, and in the Douay-Rheims bible as: “God is charity” (1 John 4:8)” –Wiki

    This is where you don’t do it for a show. Not for a duty either I guess, you don’t get any “points” for that. But do you like people? Care for them? In love? However, you’ve got another problem: Am I my brother’s taskmaster? Follow him around, nagging and telling him what to do all the time? Is that your “Caritas”? “Agape”?

    How about that third one? Christian Charity. Which is VOLUNTARY. Which goes to the second part: Work, the opposite of Sloth. In Dante, Virgil, explains that sloth can be seen as the effect of an insufficient amount of love. Most times they’re talking about charity they mean: no love, no work, not voluntary, which is something else entirely. I guess lazy, hateful theft driven by envy? And when we give in this way – with a heaping dose of government – we wonder why charity goes so wrong, is nearly extinguished as an idea, and poverty is worse now than when they started?

    But second part: saving food. Well where do you think most of the few remaining Christians in America are? In the countryside. And not just ’cause, but because they also leave the cities and actively choose it. Why? A big reason is they want the stability and they want to be near the food. So yes, the Christians DO make the food, both as farmers and as residents. And share it? Yes. But they don’t as a mass live near Baltimore and D.C. and the other death zones but I think if you go there you’ll find the few churches are the only one who are. In our city anyway. Who else would? Local 101 of the Atheists and Gambler’s Club?

    Following on, do they just steal food from the mouths of others? No. One, they grow it, discussed. Two, they deliver food that would go to waste, mostly from grocery stores, but also from farms. But three, they tend to be those who store food. Isn’t that stealing it? Um, no, unless you’re in a weird world where every grain you eat is stolen from someone else. When you buy food, you commission it to be grown. When you buy it, you indicate to the market to make more. Which then expands. So yes, if you buy it “that day,” whatever day that is, you would be competing with someone, but Christians famously don’t. They bought it weeks, months, years ahead. So if anything, when there’s a shortage they are the buffer that buys less, as well as sharing some for others, especially in national emergencies.

    For example the Southern Baptists are basically the only Hurricane relief since the government if anything actively prevents recovery. Not kidding: In Katrina, a whole container ship of frozen chickens were blown everywhere, and they said, “Don’t you pick up that rotting, 90f chicken. That’s not yours, you just wait for FEMA and a judicial ruling on it.” GTFO before we show you the sharp end of a stick. Of course, they were only #Helping. That was before George Bush flew over waving, saying “Good job, Brownie.” #Charity, don’t you know.
