White House Tells Media How To Cover Biden Impeachment (RT)

White House lawyers have reportedly written a letter directing CNN, the New York Times and other US media outlets to scrutinize Republican lawmakers more aggressively as they try to impeach US President Joe Biden. CNN and other recipients of the letter acknowledged getting the missive on Wednesday. “It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies,” Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House Counsel’s Office, wrote in the letter. He added that the impeachment efforts should “set off alarm bells for news organizations.” US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California) launched the impeachment effort on Tuesday, directing committees of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to open a formal inquiry.

He said allegations of influence-peddling and solicitation of bribes by the Biden family “paint a picture of a culture of corruption.” Even before receiving any guidance from the White House, some US media outlets already appeared to be trying to protect the president. CNN and Associated Press, for instance, suggested that Republicans were trying to prosecute Biden without having evidence to justify their investigation. Those outlets apparently ignored such evidence as the sworn testimony of IRS whistleblowers and the records of bank transfers that lawmakers have already revealed. By launching impeachment proceedings, congressional committees will gain more power to subpoena documents that could help prove or debunk the allegations.

Veteran US journalist Matthew Keys, who has worked for such outlets as Reuters and Fox News, said the White House directive on impeachment coverage was “not OK.” He added, “The White House should not be encouraging, influencing or interfering in the editorial strategies of America’s newsrooms, including CNN and the New York Times.” The letter could backfire, Keys said, because “any time the media does try to hold Republicans to account, those lawmakers can simply counter by questioning whether it’s actual journalism or something encouraged by the Biden administration.” Legal scholar Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, said the directive “has an uncomfortable feeling of marching orders to the media.”

By trying to influence coverage of the impeachment inquiry, he argued, the administration “removes any pretense of separation between the Biden personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office.” Sams, who also serves as a senior adviser to Biden, claimed that Republicans had failed in nearly nine months of investigation to “turn up any evidence of the president doing anything wrong.” He added that impeachment is “grave, rare and historic,” and the press must treat the claims of Republicans with “appropriate scrutiny.” The White House official attached a 14-page appendix to his memo providing talking points to address Republican “lies.” Democrats previously controlled the House and twice impeached then-President Donald Trump.

Turley’s take: “..the White House is now calling for the media to again form the wagons around the President and attack the impeachment effort as it did the laptop and the corruption investigation.”

White House Tells Media To “Ramp Up Scrutiny” of Impeachment Inquiry (Turley)

[..] a system by consent rather than coercion. Given that long concern, a letter drafted by the Biden White House Legal Counsel’s Office was striking in a call for major media to “ramp up their scrutiny” of House Republicans “for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.” The message is curious and concerning, particularly in the aggressive role being played by the White House Counsel’s office under Stuart Frank Delery. First, as I have previously noted, the White House is now actively involved in pushing narratives and denying factual allegations linked to the Biden corruption scandal. That could create Nixonian-type allegations of the abuse of office in the use of federal employees to counter impeachment efforts. Second, the letter was drafted by Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s Office.

So White House lawyers are now enlisting the media in a counter media campaign against impeachment? The letter removes any pretense of separation between the Biden personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s office. Sams has been the most aggressive White House official in actively swatting down allegations of corruption as well as the President’s documents investigation. Third, the letter calls for the media to actively support the White House account. The draft of the letter is a call for what I have previously criticized as “advocacy journalism” where reporters frame stories to advance their own viewpoints or values. Sam wrote “[c]overing impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable.”

In other words, media should (and it has for years) refuse to give equal attention to allegations agains the Bidens and instead tell the public what the truth is. It is a call for media to tailor the coverage to push the position of the White House against this effort to ramp up the investigation into corruption. It is an approach that is already embraced by many in the media. [..] The letter has an uncomfortable feeling of marching orders to the media. This is a media that followed the lead of Biden associates in spreading the false story that the Hunter laptop was Russian disinformation. This is the media that refused to acknowledge the authenticity of the laptop until only recently — long after the presidential election. This was the media that only recently admitted that President Biden has been lying about denials related to his son’s influence peddling. Yet, the White House is now calling for the media to again form the wagons around the President and attack the impeachment effort as it did the laptop and the corruption investigation.

“..the suit against Ziegler does not admit the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden but does assert the data belongs to him..”

Hunter Biden Sues Former Trump Aide Who Published Laptop Materials (Sp.)

Attorneys for Hunter Biden have filed a suit against Garrett Ziegler, who has been publishing emails and photos allegedly from Hunter Biden’s now infamous laptop, alleging that he violated California state and federal computer fraud laws in doing so. The suit, filed in California, specifically accuses Ziegler and a non-profit organization he runs called Marco Polo, of violating the California Computer Data Access and Fraud Act and the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. On the Marco Polo website, Ziegler published tens of thousands of emails, photos and videos purportedly from the laptop. Similar to Hunter Biden’s lawsuit against laptop repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, the suit against Ziegler does not admit the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden but does assert the data belongs to him.

The lawsuit also accuses Ziegler of hacking an encrypted backup of Hunter Biden’s iPhone that was on the laptop, something he seemingly admitted to doing during a December 2022 interview. Mac Isaac, who says he first gave the laptop to the FBI and later to former President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, has also sued Hunter Biden, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and two US media outlets for defamation and civil conspiracy. Both lawsuits are pending. Ziegler is a former Trump aide who worked under trade adviser Peter Navarro. The lawsuit describes him as “a zealot who has waged a sustained, unhinged and obsessed campaign against [Hunter Biden] and the entire Biden family for more than two years.”

[..] The California Comprehensive Computer Data Access and Fraud Act (CCCDAFA) is designed to prosecute hackers. It forbids individuals that “accesses and without permission takes, copies, or makes use of any data from a computer, computer system, or computer network, or takes or copies any supporting documentation, whether existing or residing internal or external to a computer, computer system, or computer network,” with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or commit a crime. However, the law is not clear on who owns the data contained within the laptop. According to Delaware law, where the laptop was reportedly left, abandoned property belongs to the individual tasked with caring for it after reasonable attempts to contact the original owner have been made. But the law is less clear if that would limit ownership to the laptop itself, or if it would include the data contained within.

“RFK Jr. abandoning the Democrats would all but ensure a defeat of the Brandon entity — and a brutal, landslide one at that..”

RFK Jr. Telegraphs Threat to Vacate Democrat Party (PJM)

The Democrat Party has a latent disaster on its hand vis a vis one RFK Jr. On the one hand, they are fully dedicated to sabotaging his campaign. Under no circumstances whatsoever will he be permitted to win the nomination. Even if he had 80%+ support from the electorate, the sick truth is that party leadership (influenced by the consultant and donor classes) would rather lose with Brandon than win with RFK Jr. because of what he’s liable to do to the Deep State and D.C. largesse were he ever to assume office. It would be a proverbial bloodbath for the administrative state and all of the grifters who feed on it. On the other hand, they need to keep RFK Jr. within the Democrat Party fold because if he were to go rogue and run third party — which he, frankly, should have been doing all along — it would be a veritable death knell for the Brandon entity’s prospects in 2024, which are wafer-thin as it is.

Whatever perceived threat Cornel West poses to Brandon’s re-election with his Green Party run, magnify that threat by 10x, 100x and you’re in the ballpark of what RFK Jr. would do to the party. It’s not outlandish to speculate that a strong third-party run by RFK Jr. might literally break the Democrat Party for years or possibly forever. That’s how sick of the party’s BS its own members, not to mention independents and non-voters (the largest, unserviced voting bloc in the country), are. RFK Jr. has already proven himself nearly bulletproof from relentless Democrat Party and corporate state media attacks — arguably on the same level in this regard as “Teflon” Don.

Here is RFK Jr., in an interview with Forbes, explaining what elaborate lengths the Democrat Party has gone to to rig the primary against him, outright threatening that he might drop his intra-party bid and turn his campaign into a third-party run:

“If the DNC is gonna make it, is gonna rig it so that it is simply impossible for anybody to challenge President Biden, and you know I need to look at other alternatives. Because I can’t go back to the people who support me, to my donors, and say you know, I’m just going to, I’m just in this to make a point, I need to show them a road to victory.” What is for now a threat — albeit apparently a sincere and credible threat — needs to be encouraged by everyone to evolve into reality. RFK Jr. abandoning the Democrats would all but ensure a defeat of the Brandon entity — and a brutal, landslide one at that — in 2024, which can be nothing but good news for all Americans, even delusional, loyal Democrats who don’t understand their own self-interest.

Paul Craig Roberts: ” If Putin really wants to save lives, he should hurry up and win the war.”

Does Putin Realize The Danger In Projecting The Image Of A Weak Russia? (PCR)

Militarily and diplomatically weak EU countries, not one of which is capable of going to war, are stealing the cars, cell phones, and even soap of Russians who enter Europe as tourists. Why Russians want to be tourists in the EU that is aligned with the US and Ukraine against Russia is a mystery. Although Germany, for example, would be instantly defeated in a war with Russia, the German government feels secure in robbing Russians who come to Germany as tourists. How is it that such a weak country as Germany can feel secure robbing Russian citizens? Perhaps the answer is that by permitting a conflict to continue for 17 months against an impotent Ukraine, Putin has convinced Europe and the US that Russia is too weak to risk Western ire by winning in Ukraine.

Clearly the West believes this as we can see from humiliation after humiliation delivered to Putin and to Russia. Putin could not even attend the meeting of BRICS, his own creation, in South Africa without being arrested and turned over to the International Criminal Court. Clearly, no one is afraid of Putin and Russia. When you have enemies who do not fear you and even mock you, you can expect provocations to rise in intensity. You can also expect to demoralize your own people and your own army, thus encouraging your opponent to be more aggressive. This has been my concern since February 2022, not because I am on Russia’s side but because I believe the provocations will result in a wider, likely nuclear, war. Col. Douglas Macgregor has come to share my concern.

When asked recently in an interview to assess Putin as a war leader, Macgregor said that Putin is overly cautious and that there is concern in the Russian military that by allowing the conflict to drag on, Putin gives credibility to the propaganda that Russia is weak and this encourages more Western intervention. Prigozhin, the Wagner Group commander, had this opinion, and when he tried to get Putin’s attention he was falsely accused of attempting a coup and treason. It seems the Russian government and media invents false narratives just as does the West. Col. Macgregor says, “I am worried — if you don’t act quickly to end it, at some point, you’re in trouble — and he’s in trouble, his country is. So, I think there has to be an end to this — but you can’t end it at the negotiating table. If you march to the Dnieper River and send your tank columns into Kiev, then you have a shot at ending it. But if he sits where he is, I don’t know . . .”

Neither does Putin, but he continues to sit there all the while convincing the neoconservatives that Russia lacks the strength to launch an offensive even against a defeated Ukrainian army. Does Putin really want to convince the West that Russia is too weak to really fight or that he is too much of a goody two shoes compassionate liberal to be a war leader? It would be irresponsible to lead the West to such a dangerous conclusion. If Putin really wants to save lives, he should hurry up and win the war.

EU States Tell Zelensky They Won’t Hand Over Draft Dodgers (RT)

The Czech Republic announced on Wednesday that it would not send military-age men who came as refugees back to Ukraine to be conscripted. Germany, Austria and Hungary have already made similar declarations. European conventions exclude extradition for things such as desertion or draft evasion, Justice Ministry spokesman Vladimir Repka told the outlet iDnes. However, he added that if Ukraine files individual extradition requests citing a specific criminal act they may have committed, Prague may give them consideration. Hungary has ruled out any extraditions outright. “We are not investigating any Ukrainian refugees to determine if they have been called up for military service. Hungary will not extradite them to Ukraine,” Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén told the outlet ATV on Wednesday.

“All refugees from Ukraine are safe in Hungary.” German officials who spoke to Deutsche Welle earlier this week said that Berlin did not intend to send draft-eligible refugees back, since desertion and draft evasion are not crimes under German law. There are over 123,000 Ukrainian men of military age who are in Germany as refugees, according to official estimates. Vienna was the first to refuse extradition of military-age men. There are about 14,000 potential draftees among the 101,000 Ukrainian refugees in Austria. “That would be a massive encroachment on our statehood, we would never do that,” a spokesman for the Interior Ministry told the outlet Exxpress on September 7.

On the other hand, Poland has already begun sending some Ukrainian men back, according to Hungarian media reports. A senior lawmaker from President Vladimir Zelensky’s ruling party said in late August that Ukraine might seek extradition of draft-dodgers from the EU. The government in Kiev recently announced another round of mobilization in order to make up battlefield losses, which Russian President Vladimir Putin estimated at over 70,000 in the past three months of heavy fighting. Zelensky fired all draft commissioners last month and ordered a review of all medical exemptions from military service, citing widespread corruption. New rules were adopted allowing for the conscription of people with mental disorders, chronic diseases, tuberculosis and HIV.

China And India Have ‘Low Intellectual Potential’ – Zelensky Aide (RT)

The people leading India and China lack the ability to predict the long-term consequences of their policies, a senior aide to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has claimed. Mikhail Podoliak pointed to what he called “the problem of the modern world,” singling out India and China, in an interview with Ukrainian media on Tuesday. “The problem with these countries is that they do not analyze the consequences of their own moves. These countries, unfortunately, have low intellectual potential,” he said. Podoliak suggested that even though India has a lunar exploration program, it “does not mean that this nation understands what the modern world precisely is.”

The dismissive remarks were in the context of Beijing and New Delhi’s refusal to support Kiev in its conflict with Moscow. Podoliak complained that India, China and Türkiye were “profiting” from the war by maintaining trade with Russia. “Technically, it is in their national interests,” he acknowledged, before presenting his view of what would benefit China in the long-run. “China should be interested in Russia disappearing, because it is an archaic nation that drags China into unnecessary conflicts,” he claimed. “It would be in their interest now to distance themselves from Russia as far as possible, take all the resources it has, and take part of the Russian territory under their legal control. In fact, they will do that,” he added.

Following the interview, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman urged Podoliak to clarify his remarks, when asked about them during a media briefing on Wednesday. Podoliak has a record of lashing out at nations, organizations and public figures seen as not sufficiently supportive of Kiev. Among his latest targets was Pope Francis, whom he had branded an “instrument of Russian propaganda” who “continues to reduce the influence of Catholicism in the word to zero.” The pontiff had encouraged Russian Catholics to cherish their nation’s historic legacy. The Ukrainian official also recently hit out at Elon Musk, who Podoliak claimed “enabled evil” by refusing Kiev’s request to use his Starlink communications system to launch drone attacks against the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

“Even if we imagine that we will once again be friends with the West, that they will lift their sanctions, our businesses will not return to the West..”

Russia’s Pivot To The East Is ‘Irreversible’ (RT)

Russia is steadily reorienting trade and business cooperation toward Asia and away from the “static” West, Presidential Business Rights Commissioner Boris Titov told RIA Novosti on Wednesday. Speaking on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Titov stated that while the process initially started as a political response to Western sanctions against Moscow, it has since evolved and is now based entirely on economics. “Until recently, the process of Russia’s turn to the East was largely due to political reasons, but today everything has changed dramatically… Now we can say with certainty that this turn is irreversible, and it is based not on political, but primarily economic reasons,” the ombudsman said.

Titov claimed that while the Western economy is well-developed, it is already “too heavily invested and sluggish.” “In the East, on the other hand, everything is booming, moving forward rapidly, developing rapidly. And this applies not only to China, India, and Indonesia, but also to many other countries. They are the center of development today, not Europe, our main consumers of energy are there, finally,” the Russian official added. According to Titov, Russian entrepreneurs have already realized that doing business in the East is more lucrative.

“Even if we imagine that we will once again be friends with the West, that they will lift their sanctions, our businesses will not return to the West… It is much more interesting to enter the developing markets of the East and grow together than to remain static in the West,” Titov concluded. Russia has steadily developed ties with countries in the Global East and South in recent years, although the process has greatly accelerated due to the conflict in Ukraine and the ensuing Western sanctions against Moscow. In recent months, Russia has become the top supplier of oil to both China and India, as well as the largest European exporter to China overall.According to a recent survey by the state-owned Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM), 67% of Russians approve of the eastward pivot, with only 11% against it.

“By some estimates, that seabed may contain 1,000 times more rare earth elements than those below dry ground..”

The South China Sea’s Resource Wars (Frank)

You could call it a race to the bottom, with China leading the charge. In December 2022, that country unveiled its Ocean Drilling Ship, a deep sea mining (DSM) vessel the size of a battle cruiser set to be operational by 2024. Instead of weaponry, however, the ship is equipped with advanced excavation equipment capable of drilling at depths of 32,000 feet. On land, the Chinese already hold a virtual monopoly on metals considered vital to “green” energy development, including cobalt, copper, and lithium. Currently, the Chinese control 60% of the world’s supply of such “green” metals and are now eyeing the abundant resources that exist beneath the ocean’s floor as well. By some estimates, that seabed may contain 1,000 times more rare earth elements than those below dry ground.

It’s difficult to believe that devastating the ocean’s depths in search of minerals for electric batteries and other technologies could offer a sustainable way to fend off climate change. In the process, after all, such undersea mining is likely to have a catastrophic impact, including destroying biodiversity. Right now, it’s impossible to gauge just what sort of damage will be inflicted by such operations, since deep-sea mining is exempt from environmental impact assessments. (How convenient for those who will argue about how crucial they will be to producing a greener, more sustainable future.)

The U.N.’s High Seas Treaty, ratified in March 2023, failed to include environmental rules regulating such practices after China blocked any discussion of a possible moratorium on seabed harvesting. As of 2022, China holds five exploration contracts issued by the U.N.’s International Seabed Authority (ISA), allowing the Chinese to conduct tests and sample contents on the ocean floor. While that U.N. body can divvy up such contracts, they have no power to regulate the industry itself, nor the personnel to do so. This has scientists worried that unfettered deep-sea mining could cause irreparable damage, including killing sea creatures and destroying delicate habitats.

“We’ve only scratched the surface of understanding the deep ocean,” said Dr. Andrew Chin, a scientific adviser to the Australian-based Save Our Seas Foundation. “Science is just starting to appreciate that the deep sea is not an empty void but is brimming with wonderful and unique life forms. Deep sea ecosystems form an interconnected realm with mid and surface waters through the movement of species, energy flows, and currents. Not only will the nodule mining result in the loss of these species and damage deep sea beds for thousands of years, it will potentially result in negative consequences for the rest of the ocean and the people who depend on its health.”

The biographer didn’t understand everything Musk told him. That leads to strange confusion.

Musk Gave Control Of Starlink To Pentagon – Biographer (RT)

Elon Musk gave the US military full control over a “certain amount of Starlink equipment” and can no longer influence how the system is being used to aid Kiev’s war effort, his biographer has unveiled, claiming the tech mogul wished to end his involvement in a scheme that could “cause a nuclear war.” Speaking to the Washington Post’s David Ignatius for an interview published on Wednesday, Musk biographer Walter Isaacson was asked about the billionaire’s decisions regarding Starlink, a constellation of satellites designed to provide global internet access and phone service which has also been used by the Ukrainian military.

Musk was initially “critically supportive” of Kiev and allowed near-full access to the Starlink system, according to Ignatius, who wondered why the entrepreneur eventually became “very nervous” and began restricting the range of the satellites, including in sensitive regions such as Crimea. “I’ve talked to him during this whole thing, and there was late one night, he said, ‘Why am I in this war?’ He said, ‘I, you know, created Starlink so people could chill and watch Netflix movies and play video games. I did not mean to create something that might cause a nuclear war,’” Isaacson replied. The author went on to say that Musk “decided to sell and give total control over a certain amount of Starlink equipment, Starlink services to the US military so that he no longer controls the geofencing,” adding that the SpaceX CEO “no longer controls the terms of use” for the satellites.

Isaacson said Musk had also developed a “military version of the Starlink” dubbed “Starshield,” suggesting that he hoped to pass off the project to the military. “I think that was his way of saying, ‘I got to get out of this. Even I don’t believe I should have this much power,’” the biographer continued. Musk has come under fire over his refusal to help Ukrainian forces attack Moscow’s Black Sea fleet in the Crimean port of Sevastopol – a revelation which only came to light in an excerpt from Isaacson’s biography published last week. The tech billionaire reportedly opted to prevent Kiev from using Starlink to guide naval drone strikes on Russian ships, fearing Russia might use nuclear weapons in retaliation to what he called a “mini-Pearl Harbor.”

While Ukrainian Digital Transformation Minister Mikhail Fedorov purportedly demanded that Musk turn the system back on, he was refused, with Musk explaining that Kiev “is now going too far and inviting strategic defeat” by attacking Crimea. The SpaceX CEO later claimed their services in the region around Crimea were not turned on at the time because his company was not allowed to provide coverage there due to US sanctions against Russia.

‘Weaponized Govt Agencies’ “Don’t Wish Good Things For Me” – Elon Musk (ZH)

“I don’t know really what their issue is.” That’s how the world’s richest man describes the apparent ‘beef’ that the Biden administration has with him (apart from him calling them on their bullshit and enabling a free-speech platform for others to discuss non-approved narratives). Specifically, Elon Musk told the panel on the ‘All-In’ Podcast Summit yesterday: “…there does seem to be some significant increase in the weaponization of government and really sort of misuse of prosecutorial discretion in many areas… I think this is really a dangerous thing for there to be partisan politics with government agencies.” “Elon, does the Biden administration have it out for you, and why?” All-In host entrepreneur David Sacks asked Musk. “Ha. What ever gave you that idea?” Musk joked.

“I don’t think the whole administration has it out for me,” he added. “But I think there’s probably aspects of the administration… or aspects of interests aligned with President Biden who probably do not wish good things for me.” As a reminder, DOJ and SEC are currently investigating Tesla for allegedly allocating funds to a secret project to build Musk a house – which Musk has denied (and Walter Isaacson’s biography also confirms has been dropped). Additionally SpaceX is being investigated by DOJ for not hiring illegal immigrants (no, seriously). Then there’s the FAA nitpicking over SpaceX approval: “The only thing holding back the second planned Starship at this point is regulatory approval,” signifying that they are only waiting for FAA for their next launch.

Regarding Tesla, Musk focused on the company’s operations in China. He expressed concerns about China’s military capabilities, noting, “there will come a point in the not too distant future where China’s military strength in that region far exceeds America’s.” This point underlined the broader geopolitical considerations he takes into account in his business ventures, which brings us back to Starlink and the recent controversy over Ukraine demanding him enable the satellite web service for an attack on Crimea. Musk made it clear that Walter Isaacson – his biographer – had misunderstood the situation and that the initial decision to not allow access to Starlink around the Crimean border was due to sanctions from the Biden administration.

“Starlink have provided connectivity to Ukraine since the beginning of the war and as the Ukrainian government has said, Starlink was instrumental in the defense of Ukraine – although the media forgets to mention that.” Musk explains that “at the time [the attack] happened, the region around Crimea was turned off… and the reason it was turned off was because the United States has sanctions against Russia, which includes Crimea, and we are not allowed to turn on connectivity to a sanctioned country without explicit permission – which we did not have from the US government.”

Great Reset Visionaries Stumble Upon An Unexpected Roadblock (Schlevogt)

The Center for the History of the Russian Diplomatic Service, a Moscow-based museum, proudly guards a mysterious gift that then Secretary of State of the United States Hillary Clinton handed over to her Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, during a meeting in Geneva in 2009: a button to be pressed symbolically to reboot the relationship between the two countries. However, the gadget carried the Russian imprint peregruzka The Center for the History of the Russian Diplomatic Service, a Moscow-based museum, proudly guards a mysterious gift that then Secretary of State of the United States Hillary Clinton handed over to her Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, during a meeting in Geneva in 2009: a button to be pressed symbolically to reboot the relationship between the two countries.

However, the gadget carried the Russian imprint peregruzka, meaning “overload,” instead of the deceptively similar word perezagruzka, which is the correct translation of “reset.” Likewise, recent transformative changes to the post-pandemic workplace around the globe seem to indicate that the much-touted Great Reset of capitalism increasingly is viewed as a burden too heavy to bear for humankind and an idea soon to be shelved in a virtual cabinet of curiosities. In June 2020, only months after the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the World Economic Forum (WEF), in cooperation with the Prince of Wales, started the Great Reset Initiative. Its basic idea was to leverage the fluidity of the dramatic global health crisis to push through lasting fundamental changes to capitalism on a world-wide scale and thus avoid a rerun of the Great Depression.

Thinking about the aftermath of the pandemic, Klaus Schwab, the chief executive officer of the WEF, rejected incremental, ad hoc and stop-gap measures. Instead, he envisioned a systemic revolution, encompassing radical transformations in every country, every aspect of society and economy, and every industry. The seemingly all-inclusive Great Reset Transformation Map, which features several overlapping categories, shows that the vision also includes one aspect of the future of work, that is, redesigning jobs.

To achieve his lofty aspirations, which he described as “unprecedented,” Schwab promulgated the following three broad priorities of a Great Reset agenda, which partially builds on ideas that he had already suggested prior to the pandemic: (1) interventions to achieve fairer market outcomes, (2) investments to reach shared goals such as equality and sustainability, and (3) leveraging the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” for the public good, especially in health care and the social sphere. In a Foreign Affairs article published in 2015, Schwab conceptualized the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a set of radical breakthroughs benefiting humankind, achieved by a convergence of emerging technologies in the physical, digital and biological domains. It follows the preceding three industrial revolutions, which were triggered by mechanical, electrical and digital inventions and innovations respectively.

“The “Muslim threat” was played to such an extent that the Attorney General said, “we need every tool available to us,” by which he meant getting rid of the US Constitution.”

Was There A “War On Terror” Or A War On The American People? (PCR)

In response to 9/11, Republican Attorney General John Ashcroft told an obedient Congress on a Wednesday to have a sweeping expansion of executive power and dramatic curtailment of American’s civil rights ready in bill form by the end of the week. As Matt Taibbi reminds us, “Congress quickly delivered with ‘roving’ wiretaps, warrantless searches, ‘trap and trace’ searches, law enforcement and intelligence access to grand jury information, use of FISA monitoring for non-foreign situations, reduction or elimination of predicate requirements for FBI investigations, and elimination of judicial review for most of these activities, among many other things in the USA PATRIOT Act. It all passed on October 26th.”

These measures had nothing whatsoever to do with fighting Muslim terror. To the contrary, these measures gave the government the power to terrorize Americans. Try to name Muslim terror attacks on America other than, if you believe the official narrative, 9/11. You can’t, because there aren’t any. Terror attacks on America were so non-existent that the FBI had to search for confused people and groups, convince them, enhanced with monetary bribes, to adopt a FBI prepared terror attack, and then arrest them before the attack could be attempted. The FBI always explained that “the public was never in danger” as control of the operation was in FBI’s hands. But the public is very much in danger from the police state measures that Taibbi lists. “Muslim terror” was so conspicuous by its absence that Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano announced that Homeland Security was being refocused on domestic American “extremists,” which has come to mean Trump supporters against whom the US government is deploying the police state measures.

The first part of the “war on terror” was against Americans’ civil liberties. The second part of the war was on Israel’s opponents in the Middle East. In the case of Iraq and Libya entire countries were destroyed, millions killed and maimed, and displaced to Europe and the US with the strange result of importing Muslims who were said to be terrorists into the Homeland. Ask yourself how Americans managed to fall for the propaganda that the US was under widespread attack from Muslims. The “Muslim threat” was played to such an extent that the Attorney General said, “we need every tool available to us,” by which he meant getting rid of the US Constitution.

The foundation of the American police state was established on the basis of only one attack, 9/11, falsely attributed to Muslims. If the Muslims were really capable of outwitting the entirety of the US national security apparatus, why did they stop with the WTC? With such glorious success, why did they not continue? Why instead did the FBI have to create fake terror events in order to keep the public believing we were under attack? Notice how we are always “under attack.” If it is not Muslims, it is Covid, or Donald Trump.

    Pretending that ocean seabeds contain 10 or 100 or a 1,000 times the resources found on land is simply ignoring reality. This is pure B.S!

    “RFK Jr. Telegraphs Threat To Abandon Democrat Party
    Under no circumstances whatsoever will he be permitted to win the nomination…

    Amazing how utterly resistant they are. Astonishing. “Hey, let’s admit we have no Democracy at all, even as a throwaway bone to the rubes.” “Sounds great, but we can only do that with a young, charismatic, sweet-talking candidate, right?”
    “….”

    Is there ANY level of open cheating the DNC won’t do? I mean, they fabricated superdelgates after Mondale, knowing ain’t noway, nohow anybody’s getting through that. Then they killed Sanders, then ADMITTED IT IN COURT, in California. In public. Nope. No care. Then pushed through Biden with 5% approval, bottom of all electibility nationwide in 2020. Now: literally, If RFK campaigns, the by-laws state all his campaign delegates go to the OTHER guy. However, if he campaigns for Biden, all his delegates ALSO go to Biden.

    Awesome. Couldn’t be happier except that no Democrat has noticed. So he runs on 3rd Party and BOTH Biden and Trump are out. That ALSO will break the whole system big enough people will remember. Fine with me.

    “NEVER paid some $2+ mill in TAXES – and don’t tell me Pops didn’t know. Heck, Hunter admitted he had to give him 50%

    Yes and no one cares. Prediction: no one WILL care. Even if he is at the direct command of Xi, Putin, and Hitler himself. Nope. Don’t care. Lesser of Two Evils. Conspiracy Theory. Don’t be mean. But Trump. Braaaaawk.

    Actually heard it yesterday: “But 95 indictments…!” I said, “Yes, when are they going to arrest the other 535 with their felonies?” Never crossed their minds. Probably everyone else in all D.C. are innocent at doves, never done no wrong, that’s how they’re got there.

    They also said they got the vax, immediately got pericarditis that nearly killed them, got Covid 2 more times since then, but it’s Covid’s fault. That’s what a “Vaccine” Is!!! Here’s a person who must have seen 5 doctors in such a case, and now you understand why they must capture the doctors and make them never say anything. She ain’t the first but the doctors march on, getting them on cattle cars. What’s more, whispers “Actually… the doctors don’t know anything. Can’t figure anything out…” Ya think? And yet you still only go to them, only believe them, only obey them, only refer to people who – according to you, are useless, clueless, can’t figure anything out. I suggested possibly doing her own research on “Long Covid” as they’re too busy to understand nutrition, and don’t spare to please read all sides about it. (They won’t. They know ahead of time, knowing before knowing what they don’t know)

    “Tom Emmer introduces a bill to ban the Federal Reserve from creating a Central Bank Digital Currency.”

    Since when have passing laws or not passing laws mattered to anyone? That’s so last century. We laboriously pass laws all the time, then the DoJ, DoD, NIH, IRS, ATF, Wall St, Silicon Valley, and the President himself ignores them.

    There’s only one law now: I will make it too expensive to comply. Chicago hasn’t complied with any laws in decades, with a 90% chance of getting away with any murder. Now NM is following. I think they SHOULD be able to carry as openly as Chicago does! Fair is Fair.

    “• White House Tells Media How to Cover Biden Impeachment (RT)

    Interesting case on speech. Clearly they can offer opinions on how they’d prefer the media to act. However, that is also meddling in free speech, with the covert threat of consequences, isn’t it?

    Remember the White House Press Club, asking the DoD how they can best support the slavic genocide by attacking average citizens? I’d say adding speech is generally not preventing speech. Even an open threat to reporters is good, as we can all see it happen and decide, although still illegal.

    Anyway, like the doctors above, wrong again, wrong every time, wrong in public, wrong in private, wrong on big things, wrong on small things, wrong on predictions, wrong on prosecutions, totally wrong and failed years and years and years running: American people still believe them, and look with rapt attention to anything the people who’ve been wrong tell them, snapping to action immediately. So who’s the real dummy here?

    We’re not back in the pre-Mueller, pre-Hunter days. But might as well be. I see – zero – additional uptake on reality out here. Muh “But 95 indictments!”

    “Whatever perceived threat Cornell West poses to Brandon’s re-election with his Green Party run”

    No. I don’t know what West is up to, but Jimmy Dore disassembled him in just a few short minutes with great disappointment. Sadly Dore has gotten so good at language he can tell all in a few sentences now. West is a Biden supporter, campaigning for Biden, obeying compromised moles, with core Hillary campaign managers fresh off the (illegal) Clinton Global Initiative, and working for people like Brock, who I believe is a known pedo wanted in Spain. The manager himself was in a Nazi militia, only one in Israel, who later committed major atrocities (major even for them) in Lebanon. It’s impossible West doesn’t know this, and whether you need a good manager or not, it’s simply impossible to hire someone THIS core to Hillary and the party, #1 inner circle since ALWAYS. That’s what your “Green Party” is now: a war party with a sprinkling of windmills-on-fire. So West is well-captured, however it was done, would gather excitement, then pass off to Racist, pedo Joe.

    Since the entire left seems made of people who Know-but-also-don’t-know, nearly everything, on all subjects, it’s difficult to say that West “Knows” because when your mind believes opposite things 24/7, what does “he knows” even mean? He knows.

    RFK isn’t stupid, and I’m sure he and his team have gamed this out years before we ever thought of it. He can still lose and have a huge positive impact on America, so it’s a matter of what your goals are.

    Pointing this out is wonderful except 100% of all the people this story is being staged for won’t listen or ever know it’s happening, and won’t care once they do. I think that’s the weakness. So I hope is real audience is the beltway apparatchiks who read Politico. Democrats are incapable of any human thought except obedience to the blue square, and I’m not just saying that because I talk to them constantly and know.

    “Does Putin Realize the Danger in Projecting the Image of a Weak Russia? (PCR)

    Yeah and PCR was a core NeoCon and demanded Putin “Shock and Awe” and try to hold all France while the Ukrainians were popping up out of salt mines in their rear too. Nope. PCR as a former generation believes in the primacy of “signaling.” Putin doesn’t care about how he looks…to us. Because no matter how he looks, it wouldn’t alter our offensive attack and WWIII on Russia…forever. HIS audience is the Global South, not us. As seen yesterday, he dismissed Germany and France finally as irrelevant peons, unworthy of notice.

    How’s that for “Optics” and “Weak Russia”, Paul?

    His “Optics” are to win this little thing called “Reality”, on the ground, as Ukriane has no army.

    My thought is, there seem to be an awful lot of dominoes set up all at once, and yet held in stasis right now. Housing, Stocks, Wars, impeachments, arrests, oil prices, bond collapses, even BTC prices. The Whoooooole horizon is made of nothing but Black Swans circling, but very carefully circling out of range. Wot a coincidence.

    So IF one thing falls – LeGuard cracks and the Euro crisis – then ALL the other tanks suddenly start up and roll into battle. He’s way out of the loop if he can’t see that. But he is 80. Like Peter Shiff, you get to saying the same thing for 40 years without checking.

    “there is concern in the Russian military that by allowing the conflict to drag on, Putin gives credibility to the propaganda that Russia is weak and this encourages more Western intervention.”

    Paul, Russia is WINNING because of this. Russia just had to sit behind 5 lines and drink tea because Russia is seen as weak and the enemy will VOLUNTARILY, and at great expense, assemble the whole army and drive them into a known, 100% fatal meat-grinder, ON PUTIN’S BEHALF. If Putin were the commander of both sides he could not arrange a more perfect, harmless, method of winning. If Russia were seen as strong, they would NOT do that, they would NOT send 100% of all NATO’s arms to Ukraine to be obviously and certainly destroyed, because France would feel they need to hold some for a possible Russian attack.

    Yes, they will escalate on weakness, but sir, THEY ESCALATE ON STRENGTH TOO. NeoCons, the Mafia, only escalate. That’s it. Their one tactic since “W”. Double down. So IF Russia showed strength, took all Ukraine, pushed on the Polish-Romanian border, occupied Turkey, THEY WOULD ALSO ESCALATE and call a general mobilization of NATO. …Which they haven’t. So although right, you are also completely wrong.

    Doing this, as Sun Tzu says, he’s kept it under control when the NeoCons want a nuclear exchange, ground up all their weapons, used up all their men, cost them all their money, split NATO into factions, collapsed the European economy, exposed the Democratic Party, exposed the complete worthlessness of the US Army and all US weapons, made fully independent Russia in their quinceañera, and won the Global South, thereby marching around the entire West’s Maginot line of Finance, and cutting off and collapsing the world Financiers.

    …But we should do it YOUR way, Paul.

    “EU States Tell Zelensky They Won’t Hand Over Draft Dodgers (RT)

    They really, REALLY love Welfare. We’d rather have all Europe collapse than stop paying people to do nothing, especially when they’re criminals. I wonder what’s up. Here’s their chance to kill more slavs, more humans, more little people, and they won’t take it. They’re blowing my theory.

    “China And India Have ‘Low Intellectual Potential’ – Zelensky Aide (RT)

    Spoken like a true racist. He should go to Harvard! Even his argument is stupid. Not just an insult, there is a way to point out divisions between them and get them uneasy with each other, but this guy can’t even do that as his arguments are non sequitur. China will be very impressed. Not shut off their massive, billion-dollar drone and bulletproof vest shipments or nothin’.

    our businesses will not return to the West..”

    That’s because the West will be bankrupt and more collapsed than Africa for generations.

    “By some estimates, that seabed may contain 1,000 times more rare earth elements than those below dry ground..”

    You’re kidding, right? Every time they want to rig the gold price, run a fake market manipulation attack, they trot out this gem. Have for 50 years now. It’s not THAT the sea, or the mine, or the asteroid, CONTAINS elements, it’s that you can EXTRACT them at what price? Has anyone noticed extracting from asteroids – where we can’t get to as we have no “Space” program, and barely a “low orbital” program – might be a leeeeeeeetle expensive?

    Also this is why in the main we never run out of things. Places you’d never consider as a mine suddenly “exist” because the PRICE of the ore doubles, turning an unusable rock into a mine-face. Then the number of YEARS supply also doubles as we add them to the list of potentials. Not saying we’re infinite here, but the earth is pretty big.

    …Still on with the Musk-Starlink. Still don’t understand what they’re talking about. It’s some kind of code and message, but the reporters themselves don’t understand they are the messenger-slaves with it tattooed on their scalp.

    I’d love to translate that WEF graphic:

    “Revitalizing Global Cooperation” > Creating one-world dictatorship.
    “Shaping the Economic Recovery” > Rigging Markets.
    “equality and sustainability” “Market outcomes” > Communism.
    “Restoring the Health of the Environment” > Killing people.

    “his lofty aspirations, which he described as “unprecedented,”

    Ah, indeed. We haven’t seen anything this lofty since the 1,000 year Reich. Progressives: whaddya gonna do? Well, make a new flag with a New Age symbol on it, I guess, and fly it over every blue neighborhood and embassy.

    “Rothschild Admits ESG Failure As Globalists Shift To “Inclusive Capitalism”

    Failing Failures who Fail. So what is “Inclusive Capitalism”? “Stakeholder Capitalism”? Yeah, it’s the same Socialism that failed in 1930, then failed in 1960. It’s running companies AGAINST all profit motive, that is, to NOT do what people want and will pay for but what YOU, the handlers, the Social Engineers, want them to do. That LOSES money faster than Disney on a Bud Light bender. Several of these companies have ceased to exist. Ones like Disney will probably need to break themselves up and sell themselves off to survive. Sell? To whom? To people who give the people, customer, what THEY want, not what you, the Communist Yale Executive (but I repeat myself) want. That is, to non-deranged, non-mentally ill, non-failures.

    That means Cleetus is YOUR boss, and above you, and they just can’t stand it.

    Founding The New World Order https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/founding-the-new-world-order

    ​ New World Order: The Founding Fathers​ ​ This article was first published in July 2013​ Thanks Christine.
    ​ Rich and powerful elites have long dreamed of world control. The ambitious Romans, Attila the Hun, great Muslim leaders of Medieval Spain, the Mughals of India all exercised immense influence over different parts of the globe in set periods of recognised ascendancy.
    ​ Sometimes tribal, sometimes national, sometimes religious, often dynastic, their success defined epochs, but was never effectively global until the twentieth century. At that point, with the future of the British Empire under threat from other aspiring nations, in particular Germany , a momentous decision was taken by a group of powerful and determined men, that direct action had to be taken to assert their control, and that of the British race, over the entire civilised world. It has grown from that tiny select cabal into a monster that may already be beyond control.
    ​ “One wintry afternoon in February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance for the British Empire and to the world as a whole.”
    ​ So begins Professor Carroll Quigley’s book The Anglo American Establishment. It may read like a John Le Carre thriller, but this was no spy fiction. The three staunch British Imperialists who met in London that day, Cecil Rhodes, William Stead and Lord Esher, were soon joined by Lords Rothschild, Salisbury, Rosebery and Milner, men whose financial, political, and administrative powers set them apart. Some of these names may not be familiar to you, but that is a mark of the absolute success of this group. From the outset they insisted on secrecy, operated in secret and ensured that their influence was airbrushed from history. They believed that white men of Anglo-Saxon descent rightly sat at the top of the racial hierarchy and they fully understood the impending threat from a burgeoning Germany whose modern, expanding economy had begun to challenge British hegemony on the world stage.
    ​ The above named elites drew up a plan for a secret society that aimed to renew the bond between Great Britain and the United States [1] and bring all habitable portions of the world under their influence and control. The U.S. had grown rapidly in self-esteem, wealth and opportunity since the declaration of independence in 1776, but Anglo-American connections remained strong and would embroil her in the long-term plan for one world government. The meeting in 1891 was, in effect, the birth of the New World Order cabal…
    ​,,In November 1910, five bankers representing Morgan, Rockefeller and Kuhn Loeb interests, met in total secrecy with Senator Aldrich and the Assistant Secretary to the U.S. Treasury on Jekyll Island , an exclusive playground of the mega-rich off the coast of Georgia . Of the seven conspirators, five, Senator Aldrich, Henry Davison, Benjamin Strong, Frank Vanderlip and Paul Warburg, were members of The Pilgrims. [70] Their objective was to formulate a Central Banking Bill that would be presented to Congress as if it was the brainchild of Aldrich’s Monetary Commission.
    ​ The proposed “Federal Reserve System” was to be owned entirely by private banks, though its name implied that it was a government institution. Individuals from the American banking dynasties, including Morgan, Warburg, Schiff and Rockefeller, would hold the shares. It was to be a central bank of issue that would have a monopoly of all the money and credit of the people of the United States . It would control the interest rate and the volume of money in circulation. The Federal Reserve System constructed on Jekyll Island had powers that King Midas could never have contemplated. The objective was to establish a franchise to create money out of nothing for the purpose of lending, get the taxpayer to pick up any losses, and convince Congress that the aim was to protect the public. [71]
    ​ The Aldrich proposals never went to a vote. President Taft refused to support the Bill on the grounds that it would not impose sufficient government control over the banks. The Money Power decided that Taft had to go. Their support in the 1912 Presidential election swung behind the little known Woodrow Wilson. The speed with which Wilson was bounced from his post at Princeton University in 1910, to Governor of New Jersey in 1911, then Democratic Party nominee for the Presidency in 1912 made him the Solomon Grundy of U S politics.
    ​ Not only did the Secret Elite put their man in the White House, they also gave him a minder, Edward Mandell House. Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States but this shadowy figure stood by his side, controlling his every move. House, an Anglophile who had been part educated in England , was credited with swinging the 1912 Democratic Convention in Baltimore behind Wilson . [72] He became Woodrow Wilson’s constant companion from that point onwards, with his own suite of rooms in the White House. He was also in direct, sometimes daily contact with J. P. Morgan Jr, Jacob Schiff, Paul Warburg, and Democrat Senators who sponsored the Federal Reserve Bill. [73] Mandell House guided the President in every aspect of foreign and domestic policy, chose his Cabinet and formulated the first policies of his new Administration. [74] He was the prime intermediary between the President and his Wall Street backers. [75] The Anglo-centric Money Power had complete control of the White House and finally established its central bank in time for the Secret Elite’s war.

    ​ Tulsi Gabbard on 9/11/23
    ​ “Hearing Biden lecture us about OUR responsibility to defend democracy as he and his admin do everything they can to undermine it is insulting beyond words. From the politicized prosecution of Trump, altering DNC rules to ice out RFK Jr, directing FBI & Big Tech to censor dissenting voices, to labeling concerned parents as terrorists – do they think we’re too stupid to notice their hypocrisy?​”

    ​ Professor Anthony Hall, If bin Laden Didn’t Do 9/11, Then Who Did? Part 2​
    Many other neoconservatives, some of whom absorbed the philosophy of “noble lies and perpetual war” taught by Prof. Leo Strauss, pulled together in the lead up and aftermath of 9/11. This muscular coalition of Israel-First neoconservatives became primary beneficiaries of the coup that elevated Zionist rule to unparalleled influence over the economic, legal, and political culture of the United States.
    ​ Prominent among those that took part in the coup were Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, William Kristol, Donald Kagan, Elliot Abrams, James Woolsey, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, Norman Podhoretz, Dov Zakheim, Frank Gaffney, and “Scooter” Libby. Two mirrored reports, one directed at the Israeli government and the other directed at the US government, helped articulate the coup’s objectives. Some of the objectives of 9/11, including the drafting of the massive Patriot Act, were pre-prepared and then unpacked immediately, even as the dust from the pulverized towers was still lingering on the ground.
    ​ In 1996 Richard Perle chaired a committee that gave advice to Netanyahu as he took over the Office of the Israeli Prime Minister. In A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, a get-tough approach was outlined. The removal from office of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was proposed as was the alleged need for a showdown with the Russia-backed Assad government in Syria. The twinned partner of the Clean Break report was the Rebuilding America’s Defences report. In 2000 this US report presented ideas emanating the Project for the New American Century (PNAC).
    ​ The PNAC document explained how the USA could greatly expand its capacities to better engage in simultaneous campaigns of conquest and military policing throughout the world. This report culminated in a long process of transforming the Armed Forces of what was then world’s dominant superpower, into an instrument devoted primarily to waging wars for Israel. The shopping list of armaments and new military technologies included a provision expressing much contemporary resonance. This proposal was to engage in “advanced forms of biological warfare that can ‘target’ specific genotypes. [This innovation] may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”

    Millan Millan and the Mystery of the Missing Mediterranean Storms​ [It’s not just the CO2, but the cities, deforestation, and m​echanized farming that are causing harm.]
    ​ I’d like to introduce this piece with a scenario. Suppose someone pointed out that you’d been looking at the climate through a pair of glasses with only one lens? Lifting them off your nose, they then provide you a new pair of glasses with two lenses. Suddenly, parts of the climate you couldn’t see before appear. In addition to the atmosphere, you now see the landscapes around you and the soil beneath your feet, not as helpless victims, but as active drivers of this thing we call climate. Not only that, but you see that at one point, not too long ago, science looked at the climate in just such a manner. It was only later, in the 1980’s, that the glasses with the single lens was put before our eyes and declared the official scientific view.
    ​ These are some of the insights gained when you follow the path of Millan’s career and scientific work, though Millan uses different metaphors, referring to a “two-legged” climate understanding versus the one-legged, CO2-only view, the current orthodoxy. He also shows us that water, which lies at the heart of Earth’s climate, “begets water,” that soil is like a “womb” for rain and climate, and vegetation acts as a “midwife.”​ …
    ​..By 1995 Millan had finished his analysis and began publishing his work and making presentations. It was a heady time. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen reportedly considered it the most important climate science in twenty years. His mentor, Ted Munn referred to his use of traditional meteorological charts as proof, a “smoking gun.” High level officials within the European Commission were excited as well, and soon asked him to contribute chapters to their climate reports explaining how climate models were missing land effects, and to talk to the modelling community about the problems with their models. This, though, is when the troubles began. The modelers didn’t appreciate his insights as to how their models were off. Many simply refused to believe what he was telling them, their argument being essentially that their models didn’t see what his research revealed, and therefore it didn’t exist. These were not pleasant assignments for him, and it was about to get worse.
    ​ He was soon invited by the IPCC to contribute to their Third Assessment Report, scheduled for publication in 2002. But he ran into the same conflict. The modelers there “questioned every result we presented,” he said, describing a time of endless argument and report generation, which he eventually grew impatient with, leaving the IPCC. “I had 80 mouths to feed at CEAM and no time to argue,” he recalls.
    ​ The political environment didn’t help. Politicians much preferred the news of the modelers to what Millan was telling them. The last thing a politician wants to hear is that wherever they develop the land, whether for a school or a factory, they damage the climate. They preferred what the modelers offered, a globally dispersed problem for which they had no specific local or regional responsibility. All the better if it allows them to promote growth and burnish their job-making credentials. Indeed, the solution framework being presented to them— “green” energy—allowed them to not only promote development, but at the same time claim to be green, a politician’s dream-come-true…
    ​..Though climate change has been portrayed as a modern, oil-age phenomenon, the authors, Kenyan and Sudanese scientists Julius S. Oguntoyinbo and Richard S. Odingo, reach a bit farther back, to between 6000 and 4700 years ago, when “the Sahara experienced a moister climate.” “Desiccation of the climate possibly began well before 4700 BP, but the impact was apparently delayed due to higher water tables and extensive oases. Such sites provided adequate habitats for wildlife, domesticated animals, human beings and their crops.”
    ​ Though some form of land change via farming and herding had already been present in the region, for perhaps thousands of years, the authors suggest that the region, by virtue of its extensive oases and aquifers, was ecologically resilient enough to tolerate it, but only up to a point. Eventually human modification of the landscape could have tipped the balance, which later research corroborates. “The period between 4700 and 3700 BP was arid” they note, with “the region becoming successively drier, particularly during the Roman occupation, and in more recent times.”
    ​ It’s interesting they note the Roman occupation. If the experience of the Western Mediterranean Basin is any guide, it would have been a time of intensified land use, with marshes drained, hills mined, forests cut. And as noted, it was a drier time.
    ​ The reference to “more recent times” is even more interesting. After noting that the traditional peoples of the area—the Tuareg nomads, the Haussaand farmers and Fulani pastoralists— “had developed social, economic, political, and land use systems which enabled their survival within the constraints imposed by the environment of the area,” they describe how “European colonization introduced and imposed a variety of social and economic changes, which…disrupted the symbiotic relationships which had developed between socio-economic groups of the region. Among the measures introduced were the encouragement of the pastoralists to lead sedentary lives and the introduction of the cash crop economy. The expansion of cultivated areas took place at the expense of the more southerly and thus better watered grazing lands; fallow land was reduced; while much of the bushland, which was traditionally part of the pastoralists grazing land, was incorporated into the agricultural area.”
    ​ Today’s climate narrative typically blames Saharan droughts on CO2 emissions, but these authors clearly had land-use in their sites, pointing to “overgrazing of the deserts and their margins,” and “the driving back of the nomads from parts of the steppes (leading) to degradation of the sparse vegetation cover in the surrounding semi-deserts on the one hand, and to disturbance of the ecological balance of the cultivated steppes on the other. Serious consequences also resulted from the ploughing of dry soils in particular.”​ There’s much more that could be said about the WMO’s report, and it should be noted that it also devotes considerable attention to carbon emissions, including an Overview Paper on the physical basis, detailing what it is and how it works. But there is another report to consider, one that soon followed and which proved far more consequential to the trajectory of climate science. It’s called Carbon Dioxide and Climate: A Scientific Assessment, otherwise known as the “Charney Report.”
    Jules Charney was the brilliant mathematician credited with bringing weather forecasting into the computer age, working out the mathematics behind the computer modelling that revolutionized modern weather prediction. Number crunching that would’ve once required stadiums full of mathematicians could be done by increasingly sophisticated computers, and he was the matchmaker, vastly increasing the capability of weather forecasting and laying the groundwork for the flowing computer simulations we now take for granted on the nightly weather report.
    In the mid 1970’s, rising CO2 emissions caught the attention of the US Office of Science and Technology Policy, which made a formal request of the National Research Council—the century-old, private non-partisan institution set up by congress to serve as “scientific advisor to the nation,”—to look into the matter. The NRC turned the request over to its in-house Climate Research Group, which put together an Ad Hoc Study Group of scientists, led by Jules Charney. The Ad Hoc Group sequestered in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and began reviewing all the modelling on CO2 to date, reassessing weak spots and somewhat averaging the results. The outcome was a slim, 22-page report, with the closest thing yet to a definitive statement on CO2. Unlike the WMO report, which though comprehensive, offered no clear prediction regarding CO2, other than to say more research is needed, this report provided the closest thing yet to a firm prediction. If CO2 concentrations double, it said, global temperatures will increase 3 degrees centigrade.
    It was a bombshell. Media had an attention-grabbing headline and grabbed it, with petroleum interests and environmentalists lining up on either side of its conclusion, one attacking, the other defending. As a result, a kind of social feedback loop developed. The more CO2 was denied as a cause of climate change, the more it was declared by its defenders, cementing in place the public sense that carbon gases were the sole matter of climate change. Suddenly the CO2 leg stood in the spotlight, with the land-change leg hidden in shadow, lost in the uproar.
    ​ Did Charney and his associates intend to portray CO2 as the only cause of climate change? Likely not. They point out in their Summary and Conclusions, “we have limited our considerations to the direct climatic effects of steadily rising concentrations of CO2.” Like most scientists, they understood there is more to climate than CO2, but felt confident, despite the complexity of the subject, to make their prediction, “all other things being equal.”
    ​ It’s this “all other things being equal” where things get tricky. For within “all other things being equal” lies the land leg and the living processes around it, far too complex at the time for modelling. To simply leave those processes out, which is what the Charney Report essentially did, seems artificial, yet an attempt to predict the possible effects of rising CO2 concentrations was clearly needed, and waiting until all uncertainties were resolved before confronting the CO2 problem would likely mean waiting until it was too late to do anything about it. Further, setting aside uncertainties is a common practice in computer modelling, and can run both ways. For instance, in trying to model land-change effects, a modeler might tune out CO2 effects to get a clearer picture. It’s part of the modeling process and shouldn’t be seen as underhanded. It does, however, require a certain amount of explanation, which the Charney Report failed to provide, and which hasn’t been provided since.

    McCarthy Launches Biden Impeachment Inquiry
    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday announced that the House will open an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden over a variety of alleged crimes, skipping a formal House vote he had previously teased.
    According to McCarthy, Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan will spearhead it.

    ​ The White House press pool is beginning to ask the right questions, and we can expect that these obvious inconsistencies will continue to dog the Biden campaign into the 2024 election.
    ​ First, on Wednesday the White House’s national security council spokesman John Kirby was at the podium and was appropriately grilled about why “the president lied about being at Ground Zero the day after the 9/11 attacks” among other falsehoods. “What is going on with the president? Is he just believing things that didn’t happen did happen, or is he just randomly making stuff up?”

    ​ The numerous criminal charges against former US President Donald Trump amount to persecution and showcase the “rot” in the American political system, Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated.
    ​ The US in its current state “cannot claim the right to teach others democracy,” the Russian leader said on​ Tuesday during a panel discussion at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.​ “The things that are happening to Trump are persecution of a political competitor… That is what it is. And it is done in the full view of the US public and the entire world,” he added.​..
    ..Moscow does not expect any substantial change in US foreign policy vis-a-vis Russia, regardless of who takes the White House after next year’s election, the president said.
    ​ “[Trump] was accused of having a special relation with Russia, which is total nonsense and bulls**t. But he was the president who introduced the most sanctions against Russia,” Putin noted.
    ​ The American elites predominantly perceive Russia as an existential enemy, Putin believes. The country also has friends in the US, who want good relations and share Russia’s views on traditional values, the president added, but those voices are being suppressed.

    ​Andrew Korybko is worth reading in full here; excellent analysis.
    The Reported Russian-North Korean Military Deal Is All About Geostrategic Balancing
    ​ Unlike Russia’s global interests, North Korea’s are purely national, but they’re still complementary to Moscow’s. Pyongyang had been disproportionately dependent on Beijing since the end of the Old Cold War after the USSR collapsed, but China later leveraged this relationship to expand ties with the West by approving UNSC sanctions against North Korea. Russia did the same for identical reasons, but North Korea wasn’t dependent on Russia so Pyongyang didn’t hold a grudge against Moscow like it did Beijing.
    ​ It was this growing distrust of China that inspired Kim Jong Un to seriously explore Trump’s ultimately unsuccessful de-nuclearization proposal in order to rebalance his country’s relations with the People’s Republic. The same motivation was why Myanmar agreed to a rapprochement with the US under Obama that also ultimately failed. Both countries felt that their disproportionate dependence on China was disadvantageous and accordingly sought to rectify it by rebalancing ties with the US.
    ​ Since the American dimension of their balancing acts didn’t bear any fruit and is no longer viable, each is now looking towards Russia to play that same role in helping them relieve their disproportionate dependence on China. Russian-Myanmarese relations were explained here while Russian-North Korean ones will now be elaborated on a bit more. From Pyongyang’s perspective, even if Beijing gave it game-changing military technology, this could always be cut off one day if China reached a deal with the US.
    ​ In fact, China probably wouldn’t consider giving North Korea such technology anyhow since that could make it more difficult for Beijing to ever leverage its influence over Pyongyang again in pursuit of such a deal with Washington, thus limiting China’s own foreign policy sovereignty. The likelihood of Russia reaching a major deal with the US anytime soon is close to nil after all that’s unfolded over the past 18 months, so North Korea believes that Russia will be a much more reliable long-term military partner.
    ​ Russia and North Korea’s complementary balancing acts at the global and national levels vis-a-vis China coupled with China’s reluctance to burn all bridges with the West as it begins building alternative global institutions are the real driving forces behind the first two’s reported military deal. This grand strategic insight enables one to better understand the true state of relations between these countries and therefore helps objective observers produce more accurate analyses about them going forward.

    Advancing on foot from Ukraine through Russian minefields to please Western financial institutions
    ​ Throughout August 2023, the Ukrainian army unsuccessfully tried to advance against Russian forces holding the territories east and south of the Dnieper River. Its soldiers literally crashed into the heavily fortified defensive lines of the Russian armed forces, with predictable and tragic consequences. The tactics of the Ukrainian army’s ‘counteroffensive’ have been determined by NATO instructors and have caused heavy casualties among Ukraine’s foot soldiers. They have been instructed to attack Russia’s main defense lines head-on, advancing on foot through minefields and lacking air cover.
    ​ Western countries now advise the Ukrainian armed forces to save expensive armored vehicles and ammunition and send their soldiers to advance on foot using light weapons. As a result, the battlefields have turned into huge cemeteries, from which it is difficult or impossible even to evacuate bodies.

McCullough, MD, MPH​ , The World Council for Health is the first international body of physicians, scientists, and health professionals to issue a cautionary statement on the ever-expanding routine childhood vaccine schedule. This is in response to growing concerns over the safety of many vaccines given early at life during the same administration. Here is what the Council said:

    SARS-CoV-2 In Canada
    Introduction

    This notebook was built to explore Canadian SARS-CoV-2 genomic and epidemiological data with the aim of investigating viral evolution and spread. It is developed by the CAMEO team (Computational Analysis, Modelling and Evolutionary Outcomes Group) associated with the Coronavirus Variants Rapid Response Network (CoVaRR-Net) for sharing with collaborators, including public health labs. These analyses are freely available and open source, enabling code reuse by public health authorities and other researchers for their own use.

    Canadian genomic and epidemiological data will be regularly pulled from various public sources (see list below) to keep these analyses up-to-date. Only representations of aggregate data will be posted here.

    Omicron sublineages in Canada
    There are 391 unique named variants currently circulating in Canada since 2023-04-29 (last 120 days). Please see Pango lineage table for number of sequences per lineage present.

    Historical notes
    From the beginning of the pandemic to the fall of 2021, Canadian sequences were mostly of the wildtype lineages (pre-VOCs). By the beginning of summer 2021, the VOCs Alpha and Gamma were the most sequenced lineages overall in Canada. The Delta wave grew during the summer of 2021 with sublineages AY.25 and AY.27 constituting sizeable proportions of this wave. Omicron arrived in November of 2021 and spread in three main waves, first BA.1* (early 2022), then BA.2* (spring 2022), then BA.5* (summer 2022). Current, multiple sublineages of Omicron persist, with emerging sublineages spreading, such as BQ.1.1 (a BA.5 sub-lineage).

    Got a weird call at work today. Lady tells me she’s with a charity organization – there’s 40,000 “rescued” Afghanis in Sacramento and they aren’t getting enough food? They’ve got an Iranian pastor trying to minister to them? How about my employer provides free food to them?

    uh…

    If the US State dept finds it expedient to transport 40,000 people from the other side of the world to Sacramento where they have no particular means to integrate, interact with anyone, make a living… get food, apparently? Then couldn’t it draw from its billions-dollar budget or its black budget or its human trafficking revenue or whatever to spring for some food for these people?

    Like, how is this MY problem? Fine that’s your policy, go ahead and actually DO your policy instead of just creating NGO’s to go around asking for free food. You’re standing beside the money printer, it’s RIGHT THERE. What’s the problem?

    I’d give more credence to people dictating to me via “compassion” if they’d actually pay attention to any real problems. CO2 will kill us all! Argue with me as if I were immoral ignorant scum, batter me with propaganda for decades, make me spend time researching and figuring this bullshit out, then…. we NEVER EVEN CARED about CO2, we were so self-righteous because we had a special-secret reason that made us RIGHT to badger you about CO2 which we were wrong about!

    No, climate activists, climate meltdowners, holy crusaders of the one truth. You don’t get to unveil your next level understanding and have me be polite to you, courteous, “even-handed.” (ie a complete total cuck) I absolutely do not agree that I have an obligation to you to have amnesia.

    If you’re concerned about pollution, then I expect you to be talking about China and India and nothing else for the next 5 years before I am willing to listen to you even a smidgeon about what you assert “we” are doing.

    Talk about nothing but the toxic train spill in Ohio for 5 years, labor at cleaning it up for the next 5 years and get back to me to request my forgiveness and explain how you have reformed yourself, can we please start over, “I WAS WRONG and really really shitty about it all along. I am definitely not better than you.” I’ll consider your request that I do this for you and let you know my decision.

    Idunno why we need to “rescue” 40,000 people from the other side of the world so they can starve in Sacramento. SUCCESSFULLY save our current homeless, SUCCESSFULLY fix our infrastructure, SUCCESSFULLY cut off the supply of horribly addictive illegal drugs and pharmaceuticals that are screwing people up and preventing them from functioning in society and THEN get back to me on that. You can say to me, “I apologize for treating you as IF you were immoral, uncaring scum when all I was doing was piling crushing neverending unmet commitments on your head”

    Weren’t there more than 40,000 people already IN Sacramento that needed to be rescued?

    Don’t give me this “Oh but actually we DIDN’T care about the CO2, it was this other thing that made us right all the time that isn’t CO2”

    Ok then I expect silence from these people while they pick even ONE THING and fix it. To demonstrate some actual good-will. Having demonstrated worthlessness and arrogance for decades.

    Oh but actually. Yes indeed, actually.

In reality, they are only reaping the rewards of what they have sown over the last 12 years.

    …No matter how West Point tries to pretend, they weren’t around when Russian Army was crushing Napoleon.

    Hahahahahahahaaa!

    Amen Brother!

    In 1812, the French army of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte marched toward Russia to invade it.

    It was the largest army ever known to have been assembled until that point in the history of warfare.

    The Grande Armée numbered about 685,000 troops at the start of the war

    In the end, of the 685,000 soldiers Napoleon brought who made it into Russia,

    only 27,000 of them made it out alive.

    The Russians killed all the wounded and stragglers left behind

    The French soldiers had tin buttons holding their uniform shut again the Russian winter cold.

    Tin disintegrates at temperatures below ten degrees Celsius (10°C)

    As the severe Russian temperatures approached minus 30 degrees Celsius (-30°C), the tin buttons on Napoleon’s soldier uniforms crumbled into dust, exposing them to the cold and freezing thousands to death.

    Napoleon retreat was the biggest defeat and slaughter in history to that point.

    A look at the U.S., but just by one Canadian popular mouthpiece! [ Note: … this most annoying person has quite a following, … and so this – his tirade – represents about 2/3 of mature Canadians view – more less. ]

    Anyway, here we go:

    No win.

    Let’s pivot to the big picture for a few minutes. Because, as they say, what happens in Vladivostok doesn’t stay there. Would you?

    As he prepared to greet the pudgy dictator with the weird haircut, Vlad Putin had this to say there about his pal Trump.

    “As for the prosecution of Trump, for us what is happening in today’s conditions, in my opinion, is good because it shows the rottenness of the American political system, which cannot pretend to teach others democracy,” Putin said Tuesday at an Eastern Economic Forum in Russia’s Vladivostok.

    “Everything that is happening with Trump is the persecution of a political rival for political reasons. That’s what it is. And this is being done in front of the public of the United States and the whole world.”

    Putin wants Trump to win the 2024 US presidential election. The orange guy would probably suspend aid to Ukraine, leading to a Russian occupation. Trump may also threaten walk out of NATO, which would cause partytime in the Kremlin. (Such a drastic move would now require majority Congressional approval.) […]

    No win.

    “The Alien bodies from Peru in Mexico is being broadly covered:” – John Day

    Really, John. Did you read any of the 3 articles you posted about the alien bodies presentation? I read all three. Took about 3 minutes. Each of the articles brushed the event aside as if it were a fraud, labeling it a “stunt”, that previous discoveries of the “self-claimed” ufologist, Maussan, were “debunked”, and that his presentation “faced swift backlash and criticism from skeptics”. Some coverage!

    This is what I expected: suppression of the story.

      From the 1950 W. B. SMITH MEMO #2:

    I made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy staff in Washington who were able to obtain for me the following information:

    a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.

    b. Flying saucers exist.

    c. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.

    d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.

    The Naomi Klein’s “Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism” basically describes the incremental steps that started on November 23, 1963 to seize the middle class wealth from the North American victors of WWII and transferring it to the wealthy global high castes by the now ascendant corporate-states. First the Vietnam War and then the War on Terror and now the proxy WWIII in Europe are examples of the forever wars for profit. This could only be done with lies and denial. The disasters (wars, climate change, and pandemics) are real but the propaganda makes them seem to be imaginary illusions. Denial assures that the apocalypses aren’t addressed and the stolen money is not taken back to restore democratic governments that work for the people and prevent catastrophes like the 20,000 dead in Derna Libya caused by NATO’s war against Gaddafi (Hillary Clinton; “We came, we saw, he died”), the resulting civil war that continues today, crumbling infrastructure, and extreme weather.
