17% of Americans got the latest booster. They’ve seen enough.

“..the party will be so badly damaged by then that it will have no other option except to let Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in to drive out the remaining demons..”

Happenings Await (Jim Kunstler)

In what might be one of his last official acts, “Joe Biden” announced last week that Americans would be “encouraged” to get a new-and-improved mRNA vaccine booster against the new Covid virus strain EG.5 “Eris” (named after the Greek goddess of strife and discord). The “president,” said he asked Congress for funding “for a new vaccine that is necessary, that works…. It will likely be recommended that everybody get it no matter whether they’ve gotten it before or not.” Say, what…? Did the earlier vaccines not work, Joe? Most assuredly they did not. The shots injured, disabled, and killed a great many people, and it staggers the rational mind that the CDC is still pushing these shots. You might conclude that they’re pretending this didn’t happen to evade responsibility. After all, what would be the consequences if these officials admitted that all the previous Covid vaccines were ineffective and harmful?

And what would be the reaction of the 81.3 percent of the population who got at least one dose of the previous vaccines and the 65.6 percent who are “fully vaccinated” with two or more shots? (Note, statistics from the CDC.) I’ll tell you what would happen: the CDC officials and a great many other persons on the public payroll would be in court on criminal charges. And doctors and hospitals would be subject to so many lawsuits they would never again have time to actually practice medicine, while millions of people with damaged immune systems and wrecked organs take flight like so many black swans flapping into the setting sun of their own prematurely attenuated lives. If you care to be astounded, listen to this talk that Dr. Peter McCullough gave to an audience in New Hampshire a few days ago, calling out all the principals who devised the Covid-19 fiasco by name: Ralph Baric, Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszek, and Francis Collins, and then describing exactly how the dastardly act and the cover-up went down.

Speaking of happenings this autumn, expect the war in Ukraine to come to an end. The news media might omit to inform you about this, but it awaits. Russia will not trumpet its victory, so as to avoid inflaming America’s crazed neo-cons. Rather it will just quietly take charge of its successfully neutralized neighbor, make provision for some sort of administration over what remains of the rump state — in a way that affords Russia a sense of permanent security — at the same time that Russia commences new negotiations separately with several European nations to reestablish realistic relations.

The US will be delicately hung out to dry on this. Short of resorting to nuclear World War Three, there is nothing the US can do about it — except for the Democratic Party to blame the whole sorry thing on “Joe Biden” as he is forced to resign from office pending that aforesaid impeachment threat. No other explanation for the end of our Ukraine project will be required. The party of chaos will flounder a while in the very chaos that it induced, trying laughably to switch out Kamala Harris for Gavin Newsom — or some other ploy to stay in business. But the party will be so badly damaged by then that it will have no other option except to let Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in to drive out the remaining demons and save the venerable old org from suicide.

If you think that these various momentous happenings won’t affect the financial markets and the banking system in the coming season, prepare to be amazed. This is how America truly gets to feel the pain, and this might be how the pitchforks finally come out for the people who wrecked our country.

White House Preparing For Biden Impeachment – NBC (RT)

The White House has brought together two dozen legal and media experts to combat an expected Republican effort to impeach US President Joe Biden, NBC reported on Friday, citing a White House aide familiar with the administration’s strategy. According to eight inside sources, the counter-impeachment strategy has reportedly been under development for several months as House Republicans have attempted to investigate the president and his son, Hunter Biden, and their foreign business entanglements. The White House aide who revealed the project to NBC also shared its ultimate goal: to present any impeachment inquiry as an “evidence-free partisan sham that shows a [Republican Party] penchant for chaos.”

The administration’s response will show that its opponents are “out of touch,” one official explained, by juxtaposing Republican attacks on Biden with the president’s work on “economic issues” that affect ordinary Americans. The team has been constructed to prevent any impeachment inquiry from interfering in White House business, the aide explained. This is supposed to allow administration officials to concentrate on their jobs without being “bogged down in the minutia of ongoing investigations.” “Never in modern history has an impeachment been based on no evidence whatsoever,” the aide told the news outlet, implying that taking on the Bidens would constitute such an impeachment.

White House aides on the counter-impeachment team have reportedly spent August’s vacation researching Republican talking points, putting together a message and response team to fight back. They have commissioned polls and studied political ads in the hope of disseminating a unified message supporting Biden to the Democratic Party. The Republican investigation into Biden and his son initially focused on the younger Biden’s alleged crimes, which – according to evidence gathered from a laptop he left in a Delaware repair shop, at least – include influence peddling and corruption as well as more pedestrian drug, gun, and prostitution offenses.

Hunter Biden has not been convicted of anything related to the current investigation, though he was about to enter a guilty plea on tax evasion and gun charges last month before a judge balked at the sweetheart deal he had worked out with prosecutors which would see him avoid a custodial sentence or felony conviction entirely. An issue for an impeachment would be the extent to which the elder Biden was involved in his son’s business deals in countries like Ukraine and China, deals which were directly affected by the policies Joe Biden was making as Vice President under then-president Barack Obama. While the president has denied any knowledge of or participation in his son’s professional activities, email records, as well as the testimony of Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer, contradict his public statements on the matter.

MTG is, let’s say, a unique voice.

Biden Dragged US Into Proxy War With Russia That Moscow Is Winning – MTG (Sp.)

Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has consistently spoken out against sending more arms supplies to Ukraine. After the Biden administration signed off on the delivery of DPICM cluster munitions to Kiev in July, the congresswoman warned that Washington was dragging the US into an unwanted war with Russia. US President Joe Biden has every single American “involved in a proxy war with Russia” that Moscow “is winning,” Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) told an audience gathered at a town hall meeting in Floyd County on August 31. The politician, who has been staunchly opposed to how the Biden administration has been bankrolling the regime in Kiev, told constituents: The Republican politician went on to point out that the intelligence community was blatantly “lying” to Americans, claiming that Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, wants to “take over Europe.” “If that was the case… He would be much more aggressive in the war, and he’s not,” the politician, also known by her initials, MTG, emphatically stressed.

“Now, I’m old enough to remember, and I know you are. Every single foreign war America has been involved in… What did we see on television? … Bombing after bombing. Remember all that? Do you guys remember we watched the rockets being fired… We watched troops fighting… How many of you have been able to watch the war in Ukraine that you’re paying for on the nightly news? None of you. You want to know why? America is being lied to about that war. Here’s the tragedy. They’re losing. Russia is winning. That’s the truth,” stated the Georgia congresswoman. MTG weighed in on the cost-of-living issues plaguing the people of America, saying that “energy bills are going up, your groceries are going up… inflation is hurting you. You’re watching your retirement money shrink to nothing because inflation’s going up.” Pointing out that the US federal government was mired in debt “worth $32 trillion,” she queried: “Are we going to end up in another war?”

[..] Reacting to the latest exorbitant military assistance for Ukraine announcement, Marjorie Taylor Greene told the gathering on constituents on August 31: “Washington has sent $113 billion over there. 113 billion. I voted no to every single penny of it. No, I said, no.” She added that there were “innocent people dying every single day” in the Ukraine conflagration. Indeed, despite the massive military assisstance to Kiev, the Ukrainian counteroffensive that started in June has brought no tangible results so far, with the costly Western-gifted weapons destroyed by Russia’s military. The Ukrainian military has sustained tremendous losses, including over 43,000 troops dead and even more wounded. “… But what funding that war means is means we are funding death. We are funding the murder of innocent people,” the congresswoman stressed to the crowd. If the “arrogant leaders” in Washington continue to fund the Ukraine conflagration at the rate they are doing it now, it’s “going to drag on for decades,” said MTG.

Rise of BRICS ‘Devastating’ For US – MTG (RT)

As BRICS gains momentum, the US economy becomes weaker because the members of the grouping can circumvent American sanctions and trade in their own currencies, Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene said on Thursday. Speaking to her constituents in Georgia, the Republican congresswoman lashed out at the administration of US President Joe Biden, which she said is turning a blind eye to the rise of BRICS – an economic group which consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa and accounts for more than a quarter of global GDP. The Republican firebrand claimed that while the Washington is “doing… nonsense” – including providing all kinds of support to Ukraine which is locked in a conflict with Russia – “there are other countries in the world, powerful countries, organizing together because they are tired of the United States.”

In this sense, the BRICS countries are making serious trade agreements “where they are saying: we’ll buy from you, you’ll buy from us, we don’t care about US sanctions and we’ll sell to one another, buy and sell in our own currency, not the US dollar,” she stated. “This is one of the most devastating things that can happen to all of us,” Greene claimed. As BRICS becomes more powerful, the US dollar gets weaker, she said. “And you know what happens to all of us? We’re going to go broke,” the congresswoman predicted, adding that this dynamic will negatively affect the retirement plans and personal savings of ordinary Americans. “What is going to happen to our children, when the US dollar means nothing anymore, because Russia, and China, and India with its huge population of billions of people have more buying power in their own currencies than we do?

This is a very serious concern,” Greene said. The congresswoman’s remarks come on the heels of a historic BRICS summit in South Africa, where the group agreed to an unprecedented expansion, admitting six new countries – Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates – which will become full-fledged members in 2024. In a declaration summarizing the summit, BRICS, which has historically positioned itself as an alternative to Western-dominated international institutions, reaffirmed its commitment to inclusiveness, while expressing support for the “legitimate aspirations” of African, Asian, and Latin American countries to play a more prominent role in the global arena.

“An old political saying, that the word “Senate” comes from the same Latin word as “senile”, is circulating again.”

Nikki Haley Calls US Senate ‘Most Privileged Nursing Home In The Country’ (G.)

The US Senate is “the most privileged nursing home in the country”, the Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said. The former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the United Nations, 51, was speaking to Fox News a day after the Republican leader in the Senate, 81-year-old Mitch McConnell, suffered a second freeze in a month, this time while speaking to reporters in Kentucky. “What I will say is, right now, the Senate is the most privileged nursing home in the country,” Haley said. “I mean, Mitch McConnell has done some great things, and he deserves credit. But you have to know when to leave.”

On Thursday, the congressional physician said McConnell was clear to work, perhaps while suffering the after-effects of concussion, sustained in a fall in March, or dehydration. Other falls have been reported, including a “face plant” at a Washington airport, but McConnell has said he will complete his current six-year term, his seventh, which ends in 2026. It was reported on Thursday that some Republican senators were discussing whether to force a confrontation on the issue of their leader’s health. Haley said: “No one should feel good about seeing [McConnell’s freezes] any more than we should feel good about seeing Dianne Feinstein, any more than we should feel good about a lot of what’s happening or seeing Joe Biden’s decline.”

Feinstein, 90, is a Democrat and the senior senator from California. Her health and mental capacity long in question, she has said she will retire next year. Biden, 80, is the oldest president ever elected and would be 86 by the end of his second term if he wins re-election. A recent poll showed that more than 75% of Americans think he is too old to run again. This week, the Guardian reported a claim in a new book that Biden has privately admitted he is occasionally tired. The current Senate is the oldest in US history. An old political saying, that the word “Senate” comes from the same Latin word as “senile”, is circulating again.

Polling shows support for upper age limits for elected officials. Haley has called for mental competency tests for candidates over 75, though aiming such remarks more at Biden than Trump, the 77-year-old Republican frontrunner. “I wouldn’t care if they did [tests] over the age of 50,” Haley told Fox News. “But these people are making decisions on our national security. They’re making decisions on our economy, on the border. “We need to know they’re at the top of their game. You can’t say that right now, looking at Congress.”

Conflict Should Be Transferred To ‘Russian Territory’ – Ukraine Spy Chief (RT)

Kiev should bring the ongoing hostilities with Moscow to Russian territory, the head of the Ukrainian military’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) has said, contradicting Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s earlier statement. Both officials’ comments, however, come as Moscow has repeatedly accused Kiev of staging numerous “terrorist attacks” inside Russia. In an interview with Ukrainian TV anchor Natalya Moseichuk, Kirill Budanov touted a transfer of military action to Russian territory as an “excellent idea.” “The war must be extended to other territory – which for us is clearly Russia – and other areas where they have influence,” he said. According to Budanov, such a tactic would help Ukraine stretch and paralyze Russian forces. “The wider the operations are, the better,” the intelligence official added.

Budanov’s remarks starkly contrast with Zelensky’s comments last month when he ruled out attacks on Russian territory, explaining that this “would pose a great risk that we would be left alone” without the West’s help. Around the same time, however, Mikhail Podoliak, a top aide to the Ukrainian leader, said that Kiev’s Western backers supported the destruction of “everything Russian” in the territories it deems “occupied,” including the Crimean Peninsula, a statement the Kremlin shrugged off as wishful thinking. Russian territory, including Moscow, has come under recurring drone raids targeting civilian facilities in recent months. Ukraine has stopped short of claiming responsibility for the attacks, with Podoliak blaming “unidentified” aircraft instead.

In addition to aerial attacks, Moscow has repeatedly accused Ukraine of attempting to stage incursions into border regions, resulting in intense skirmishes and civilian deaths. In one notable example, in May, a Ukrainian saboteur group infiltrated the Belgorod region, killing one civilian and injuring several others. Kiev claimed this was an operation conducted by the Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK), comprised of neo-Nazi militants and another collaborationist group called the “Freedom of Russia Legion.”

US To Send Depleted Uranium Munitions To Ukraine – Reuters (RT)

The US is set to become the second country after the UK to greenlight shipments of depleted-uranium shells to Ukraine, according to Reuters, despite concerns that such munitions could have a dramatic negative effect on public health and the environment. The munitions are intended for US Abrams tanks, first of which are expected to arrive in Ukraine in the coming weeks, the agency reported. According to several unnamed US officials and a “document” cited by Reuters on Saturday, the depleted uranium shells will be part of the next multi-million dollar arms donation expected to be announced next week. The reported plan follows another highly controversial US move to cluster munitions to Ukraine, which had been criticized even by some of Washington’s closest allies.

Should the US approve depleted-uranium shells for Ukraine, it would follow an earlier move by the UK, which announced similar shipments in March. The UK’s decision left Moscow furious, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov saying that the delivery would be “taking this escalation to a new and very serious stage.” Russia’s embassy in London accused the US and its allies of being willing to turn Ukraine into “not only an anti-Russian military shooting range, but also a radioactive landfill.” When these toxic shells first showed up in Ukraine, Moscow warned that the UK “will be held accountable” for the irreparable harm caused to civilians and soldiers alike. However, both UK and US officials have disputed health hazards associated with DU shells – which use a dense uranium core to improve their armor-piercing capabilities – and deny studies that the weapons were linked to a spike in cancer and birth defects in Iraq.

In the wake of the British move, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow would respond by placing tactical nuclear weapons in neighboring Belarus. He noted that in this respect Moscow’s actions do not differ from those of the US, which has nuclear weapons deployed in five European countries. Moscow said it will only remove these weapons if the US removes its own nuclear missiles from Europe and dismantles the infrastructure associated with them. Ukraine’s Western backers claim that they are not directly participating in the conflict in Ukraine, and have avoided providing certain weapons – notably fighter jets and long-range missiles – that would risk provoking a direct clash with Russia. Nevertheless, they have sent Kiev more than $100 billion worth of arms, while ignoring Moscow’s repeated warnings that every subsequent weapons package brings the US and NATO closer to active participation in the conflict. Furthermore, by enabling Ukraine’s drone attacks on Russian civilians, Western nations have become “sponsors of terrorism,” according to the Kremlin.

How Much Do Mercenaries Make in Ukraine? (Sp.)

The Russian military has reported a major uptick in Ukraine’s recruitment of foreign mercenaries. Estimates on just how much these ‘soldiers of fortune’ get paid vary wildly, from less than $1,000 a month to $2,000 per day. Sputnik did a little digging and spoke to a pair of veteran military experts to try to get to the bottom of things. A Bundeswehr vet who volunteered to fight alongside the Ukrainian Army gave a tell-all interview to German media recently, revealing the surprisingly low going rate of foreigners taking part in NATO’s proxy war against Russia in Ukraine “It depends on how much time you spend on the front lines. There is a principle of combat payments – that is, they pay for each day spent in battle…Per month, it turns out to about €2,000-€2,500 euros. For Ukraine, this is quite a lot,” the mercenary said.

He added that troops who spend more time on the front can get even more, up to about €3,000 (or $3,260), per month. The merc’s testimony seems to match up with figures put out in February by Russia’s Investigative Committee, which has been collecting information on potential war crimes in Ukraine. According to investigators’ figures, foreigners in Ukraine receive between 30,000 and 100,000 hryvnia (about $815-$2,710). The Investigative Committee launched criminal cases against 160 mercs from 33 different countries, including Georgia, the US, Latvia, Israel and Sweden related to suspected crimes against Russian troops and civilians.

The ballpark figures have also been separately confirmed in an investigation by French media this summer, which uncovered that mercs attached to Ukraine’s infamous International Legion receive a base salary of €500 euros, and up to €3,000 a month when they’re on the front lines. Volunteers also complained about having to pay out of pocket for vehicles, supplies and even small arms, notwithstanding the nearly $100 billion in aid doled out by the West to date for weapons. The monthly figures are a far cry from the smattering of information reported during the early stages of the crisis last year, including reporting by British media in March 2022 on payments of up to $2,000 per day plus bonuses for multilingual former soldiers willing to head to Ukraine to engage in extraction operations.

It also challenges the traditional range of “security contractor” job postings, which similarly cite a pay rate of $500-$1,000 per day, equivalent to a six-figure salary when annualized (assuming that the fighter lives that long). “$1,000-$2,000 a month, I think, is kind of low. If you told me that’s for a day, I’d say okay, I can see that. Maybe a little on the high side, but up to that amount for a commander or something, yes, I can see that. But if you’re talking on a per month basis, actually it’s quite low for a mercenary type of situation,” Earl Rasmussen, a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel-turned international consultant with over two decades of military experience, told Sputnik.

“Schallenberg said Russia would remain important for the EU, urging the bloc’s lawmakers to “get real.”

Only 10% of Western Firms Have Left Russia – Austria (RT)

More than 90% of Western businesses that were present in Russia before the conflict with Ukraine broke out are still operating in the country, Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg said on Thursday. In an interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Schallenberg also highlighted Russian companies are still active in Austria and Germany, while Vienna’s dependence on gas supplies from the sanctions-hit country remains high. “Exit from the Russian market is a far more complicated process than it is often described,” Schallenberg said. Austria’s reliance on Russian gas supplies has been reduced but still amounts to 50%, the minister said, stressing that the landlocked country cannot build LNG terminals, unlike some fellow EU member states.

“All in all, only 12% of Austria’s energy requirements are covered by Russian gas supplies,” the minister added. “We have created strategic gas reserves, and won’t face intermittent power outages during the upcoming winter.” Earlier this year, Schallenberg said Russia would remain important for the EU, urging the bloc’s lawmakers to “get real.” The minister defended the right of Raiffeisen Bank International, Austria’s second-largest lender, to continue operating in Russia, as it is one of only two foreign banks that is systemically important for the Russian economy, along with pan-European commercial bank UniCredit. “To think that there won’t be Russia anymore and we can decouple in all areas is delusional,” he stated in a March interview with Reuters.

It all fell apart with the murder of Gaddafi.

African Coups Expose And Unravel A Web Of Western Meddling (Marsden)

French prosecutors have just charged former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who spearheaded Western support for the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, over alleged Libyan financing of Sarkozy’s 2007 election campaign. Time sure does fly! It seems like it was just yesterday that the Libyan leader was visiting Sarkozy at the Élysée in the wake of Sarkozy’s 2007 election victory, insisting on making himself comfortable in a traditional Bedouin tent on the lawn of the lavish state guest house. Sarkozy had made a trip to Tripoli himself just a few months earlier, barely weeks after taking office. His spokesman called France and Libya’s anti-terrorist cooperation a “longtime common combat.”

But suspicions about Sarkozy’s motives for leading the regime change charge arose in 2012, when Libyan intelligence officials implicated French agents in the capture and killing of Gaddafi in October 2011, alleging a cover-up related to Sarkozy’s 2007 election campaign. Anonymous European officials also started singing the same tune to the Western press. When former US president Barack Obama took office in 2009, Paris insiders said that, given his focus on containing China, Obama delegated much of Africa to the French and Brits – who promptly screwed things up. And Obama was still talking about those screwups in 2016 when he told The Atlantic in an interview that he “had more faith in the Europeans, given Libya’s proximity, being invested in the follow-up,” in the wake of the French- and UK-backed coup against Gaddafi.

Obama underscored, in the same interview, just how easy it was to “purchase France’s involvement in a way that made it less expensive for us and less risky for [America]” – just by allowing Sarkozy to take credit for the coup. The idea that France or a French president can be “purchased” seems relevant here. These events in Libya should also raise questions about the recent coup in Gabon and the role of France in creating the conditions that ultimately gave rise to it. As with Libya and Gaddafi, Sarkozy also seemed to have an odd fixation with Gabon, making three visits to the country between his election in mid-2007 and February 2010, including shortly after Ali Bongo took power in 2009, with 42% of the vote, in the wake of his father Omar’s death. Kind of weird for a French president whose predecessor, Jacques Chirac – who loved Africa so much he built the Musée du Quai d’Orsay in tribute to it – had lamented his lack of interest in the continent.

“The main interest of my trip is to reaffirm loyalty. I want to show that France is faithful,” Sarkozy said during one of those visits to Gabonese President Ali Bongo in 2010. In the wake of these new corruption charges, it seems that French “loyalty” in the case of Libya may have been tied directly to French presidential or special interests. And, by some accounts, that could also be the case with Gabon.

“More than anyone, the CIA and Kiev had a score to settle and wanted Prigozhin dead… Projecting Russian influence into Africa is a crucial part of Putin’s foreign policy, and Wagner is the key to this success..”

Russia Inherits Prigozhin’s African Odyssey (Bhadrakumar)

Africa, especially west Africa, has a strong sense of collective identity. Trends in one country have a way of spreading across the continent. Therefore, It might or might not be a coincidence that the military takeover in Gabon on Wednesday came just a day after French President Emmanuel Macron took a tough stance vis-a-vis the generals in power in Niger. Macron not only scoffed at the generals’ demand seeking removal of the French envoy in Niamey and the French troops numbering 1500 personnel in that country but threatened to attack Niger. Apparently, Macron meant business. AFP had reported last week the stern warning by the spokesman for the French general staff, Colonel Pierre Gaudillière, that “French military forces are ready to respond to any resurgence of tension that would undermine French military and diplomatic bases in Niger” and that “measures have been taken to protect these bases”.

But the generals in Niamey hit back despatching a communication to the French foreign ministry that Macron’s envoy, Ambassador Sylvain Itté “no longer enjoys the privileges and immunities attached to his status as a member of the diplomatic staff of the French Embassy”; his “diplomatic cards and visas” and those of his family members “are cancelled”; and, the Niger police “have been instructed to proceed with the expulsion” of Itté. It is a humiliating rebuff to Macron. He has no option now but to dial back his threat. A bloodbath in Niger to vent his anger at the deportation of his ambassador will be disastrous for France’s international standing. Besides, a “known unknown” factor also comes into play which will make Paris (and Washington) think twice — the ghost of Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin. This needs explaining.

Although no credible source has linked Russia to the coup in Niger, its strong connection with interventions in African countries — Central African Republic, Sudan, Mali and Libya — through the Wagner group leaves unanswered questions. This of course brings up the circumstances of the plane crash of Prigozhin in mysterious circumstances, which Russian investigators now estimate as an act of sabotage. There is no question that Prigozhin was an obstacle to the US/NATO plans in Africa. John Varoli, former foreign correspondent for New York Times, Bloomberg and Reuters TV (who was based in Moscow from 1992 to 2013 and was “trained as a US foreign policy expert with a focus on Russia and Ukraine”) wrote a riveting blog in Substack recently where he concluded on the following lines:

“More than anyone, the CIA and Kiev had a score to settle and wanted Prigozhin dead… Projecting Russian influence into Africa is a crucial part of Putin’s foreign policy, and Wagner is the key to this success. Relations with African leaders are built on Prigozhin’s personal charisma… Likewise, by eliminating Prigozhin and his top officers, NATO has dealt a blow to the Kremlin’s ambitions in Africa… Like with any high-profile assassination, we will never know the full truth. But one thing is for certain — the U.S., certain NATO members and Ukraine benefit the most from Prigozhin’s demise, while the Kremlin gains absolutely nothing. All available information points to Western involvement and guilt.”

History’s Starting to Rhyme – The Fight for Uranium (Jim Rickards)

Another conflict with escalatory potential involves the state of Niger, located in the Sahara desert. A recent military coup d’état overthrew the elected government several weeks ago (although the coup leaders contend the election was fraudulent). Some surveys show that the military junta enjoys broad popular support. Niger is France’s largest supplier of uranium, while France is one of the largest builders of nuclear power plants in the world. France desperately needs to restore order in Niger, including forcing the junta to step aside and reinstate the elected government. France has special forces including the French Foreign Legion ready to intervene. However, France does not want to proceed unilaterally, and is trying to recruit African allies to join the invasion.

The most significant regional grouping is the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which includes both Francophone states like Senegal and Côte D’Ivoire and important Anglophone states such as Nigeria. France is recruiting ECOWAS to participate in its invasion of Niger. ECOWAS members are divided on the idea. In any case, ECOWAS action would require approval of the African Union and possibly the United Nations as well as weeks of mobilization. So no military action is likely for several months at the earliest. There’s no evidence that Russia was involved in the Niger coup, but Russia certainly stands as a major beneficiary. Russia is the other large manufacturer of nuclear power plants in addition to France. Russia gets its uranium from inside Russia, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian republics. (Russia also owns large amounts of U.S. uranium deposits obtained in a deal authorized by Hillary Clinton in exchange for huge donations to the Clinton Foundation).

If Russia can cut off France’s access to Nigérien uranium, it will tighten its hold on global uranium supplies and enhance its position as a provider of nuclear power plants. There is some talk now (not confirmed) that Russia may offer support to the Nigérien coup, including possible deployment of the Wagner Group mercenary army. That would greatly complicate any plans for French or ECOWAS involvement. Again, we would have the specter of Russia (via Wagner) and France (a NATO member) squaring off in a war for uranium in the Sahara desert. The escalatory potential is obvious. By the way, the bloodthirsty Victoria Nuland visited Niger recently and was not warmly received. She departed the country empty-handed. No doubt she left some threats of U.S. support for the French behind.

JPMorgan flagged over $1 billion in suspicious transactions linked to deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, which the bank reported to the US government, the US Virgin Islands has claimed in its lawsuit against the bank. “JPMorgan was a full-service bank for Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking,” said Mimi Liu, an attorney for the USVI, which says the enormous sum bolsters key allegations in their legal action against the bank, which they say knowingly benefited from Epstein’s wrongdoing, Bloomberg reports, noting that this is the first time in the case that the ‘sheer volume of Epstein’s financial activity at JPMorgan over a 16-year period has been disclosed.’ The suspicious activity was detailed in a 2019 filing to the US Department of Treasury, a USVI attorney told a federal court in Manhattan on Thursday.

The filing was made after Epstein died in a Manhattan jail cell a month after his arrest on sex trafficking charges. Epstein had been with the bank from the late 1990s through 2013, when they finally cut ties with him. Epstein notoriously trafficked some of his victims to a private island in the USVI. JPMorgan denies that it let Epstein’s activities slide, and says it reported around 150 cash transactions to a federal regulator between 2002 and 2013. Last month, the USVI told the judge in the case that the bank facilitated over $1.1 million in payments from Jeffrey Epstein to “girls or women,” many of whom had Eastern European surnames. Over $320,000 of the payments were made to “numerous individuals for whom JPMorgan had no previously identified payments,” Singer wrote, accusing the bank of failing to disclose the payments until after the end of discovery – the period in which parties in a lawsuit exchange evidence.

The bank claims that’s irrelevant, because the USVI doesn’t have legal standing to claim JPMorgan obstructed a trafficking investigation because it wasn’t a victim. That said, Liu is urging the judge in the case to decide various claims in the USVI’s favor without a trial. “The only reason that JPMorgan after 16 years reported the $1 billion in suspicious transactions was because he was arrested and then he was dead,” she said. JPMorgan claims they had no idea what Epstein was up to – pointing to depositions from current and former employees who say they had no knowledge of the trafficking. “There is hotly disputed testimony and evidence,” said Feliia Ellsworth, an attorney for the bank.

BRICS and human rights.

BRICS and the Future of Humanity (Solo)

In Egypt, there are over 60,000 political prisoners and arbitrary detentions. There is also torture, enforced disappearances, death sentences; the persecution of independent journalists and the repression of any dissent are the order of the day. In Iran, the protests following the murder of the young Masha Amini were brutally repressed, leading to several death sentences after show trials. Here too, arrests (often of journalists, accused of documenting protests and abuses), torture, and enforced disappearances, not to mention discrimination against women and the persecution of gays and lesbians are widespread. Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy where human rights are systematically violated, freedom of expression is attacked and women are discriminated against by law.

Here too there are unfair trials, arbitrary detentions and death sentences often imposed for simply participating in sit-ins and protests. With the bombings in Yemen, Saudi Arabia has also caused massacres of civilians and one of the most serious humanitarian crises in the world. In the UAE, consensual same-sex relationships between adults are criminalized and political dissidents are subjected to abuse, arbitrary detention and ill-treatment. Press freedom is hindered and limited by controls and bans. In India, democracy is degenerating into an increasingly totalitarian form and aims to transform a multilingual and multireligious country into a monolithic entity dominated by a fanatical Hindu party. Protests and dissent are repressed and religious and ethnic minorities persecuted.

As of 2022, the NGO Reporters Without Borders ranks China as one of the ten countries in the world with the least freedom of the press. In Russia, conscientious objectors and all those who refuse to participate in the war against Ukraine are persecuted, arrested and imprisoned. Brazil, Argentina and South Africa are the only BRICS members to have abolished the death penalty. China invaded Tibet in 1950 and annexed it in 1959, bloodily suppressing the revolt of the population; a situation that continues today. Russia has been carrying on an invasion war in Ukraine for over a year that has caused thousands of dead and wounded and terrible devastation, which is countered by an equally criminal warmongering policy by NATO, the European Union and the United States.

Currently, only Brazil and South Africa are among the 92 signatories and 68 states parties to the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Among the remaining BRICS members India, Russia and China are nuclear powers with expanding arsenals.

    Lahinia, something is going on that’s neither the official story OR the conspiracy theory about it. Because this is nuts. 2,000 children missing. Aaaaand where are their parents? I know they’re busy but not ONE can get on Social Media, or the social media is censoring them PERFECTLY for the first time ever? No one on 4Chan, Rumble, Rogan? Not one. Huh. That is not suspicious at all.

    That’s because they’re not dead or their parents would lose their minds. Parents are G-D- terrible these days, all love is dead, but still enough of them would despair of life altogether – entirely illogically – that they would make one hell of a mess. Shoot them, jail them, they just wouldn’t care. But zero, none? Huh. No way.

    And unlike at first when we pinned this in mind, they thought that they might be somewhere alive. If they are not named and lined up now, they are 100% with absolute certainty, dead dead dead, and the parents would not have that twig to hold onto.

    Add that to the complete blackout, blockout, they have no money for water, but they DO have money to build a 20 foot fence around the whole island? Specifically and only to keep out drones? Like PHOTONS are dangerous now, and the information they deliver? And they’re not the good guys: they’re still preventing all normal landings and charity crews.

    Here’s a thought, because not one fact here makes a lick of sense. NOT, definitely, a land grab. WAY too large. The upper level may have created buy-in by selling it as a land grab, but like I said, you send Antifa or Vinny with matches for that (and have. Many times). As a message, it’s not going well. They’re more exposed now than ever before, and not just this island but America and the World is looking right at them. Even if they built the city now, everyone would just remember it as the first Dachau, founded on the charred remains of infants.

    I’d say They, — call them “somebody” for now – who are associated with the FEMA, WEF, billionaires, but is not them, used a very specific “space” weapon to do this. That blew the lid off their DEW which is in Top Secret lockdown for decades. Now everybody knows they have them. Russia knows. China Knows. Niger knows, and they know they will use them for ants. That may be part of the Blockout, but can’t be all of it.

    The town is actually burned. Bigly. The people were actually locked in BY the Hawaii authorities at the highest level and by the Policeman who ran the Vegas Shooting. Yet the kids can’t be dead as we just said. And the parents must think so or know something.

    So what do we have? THEY, Bad Guys, got the jump on the Good Guys this time. They destroyed the town, but NOT as a signal or message, some other reason. Yes, the town might have been planned to do this sometime, but this wouldn’t work, obvious it would never work, and indeed it hasn’t. There’s evidence there? They’re no longer powerful enough to get in and remove that evidence the normal way? The Good Guys are dead flat-footed and scramble only as it’s beginning to happen. Like the FEMA arrests rumored. All FEMA is meeting an hour away, the world’s biggest coincidence.

    The kids weren’t to be baked – what a waste! – but abducted and put on busses BY the School. And why not? There isn’t an authority figure on the planet they wouldn’t obey. You’re the 5 policemen who killed Amir Locke and St. Floyd by standing on his neck then went to Uvalde and drank coffee for an hour? Here you go: all our children. Drive safe, honey! Kisses from me!

    Anyway, so the kids were stolen not to waste them, and are driven to ‘safety’ of trafficking, or at least out of the fire. The Good Guys then appear and start knocking heads. What are they supposed to ADMIT whatever biolab, child-experiment lab, DUMB tunnel, God-knows-what on Maui? Are they supposed to ADMIT we have space laser weapons, have for decades, and use them? There’s a word in the UFO world: disclosure. That’s why “They can’t do that”.

    If they admit this, people will lose their minds NOT because of Worldwide Mass Panic, Dogs and Cats living together like the dumb-ss elites put in movies about us, but because they will say WHAT ELSE have you been keeping from us for 80 years? I want to know right now, mister!!! It opens a sweater that will unravel everywhere, you can’t predict where at all. Not a bit. Although everyone knows they SHOULD disclose, they CAN’T as it’s too chaotic and uncontrolled. Even for the Good Guys. And everyone is complicit in this, Congress, Pentagon, corporations, it’s the cause of all our poverty, ruin, death, as it’s where all the money is going. It ends EVERYTHING. They’re clearly outing the Bad Guys publicly, but no one is ready for this level yet.

    So they had to have re-captured the kids, “kidnapped” although the kids may or may not know that. I expect yes, they saw bad stuff or they would just re-appear them. So they were stored in a tunnel or something, saw too much, and now even the Good Guys are at a loss of what to do with those families, and are feverishly working up a PR story as we speak.

    That leaves the Space Lasers, which again Russia knows we have, but if the PEOPLE know they aren’t safe anywhere and our tech is NOT 50-year-old F16s, they’ll say WTF? Use these on Ukraine! Again, opens too many discussions which can’t be controlled. …Because everything is a lie.

    So they HAVE to hide it, but from who? Russia and Iran can see Maui from space. No: to YOU. YOU are the only person they want not to know. You the voter who has to make voting decisions. And they don’t care that WE know, on TAE, 4Chan, all they need is deniability. Revelation has to happen, but SLOWLY. Slow enough to digest and slowly merge the CNN fable and something more like reality down the line. You notice they’re doing that, and it’s causing a lot of stress even at the – to me – glacial pace of the last 6 years. If you double, 10x that, you’ll have George Floyd riots and lose Congress again, and who benefits?

    So the Kids are alive, they’re spinning a cover story, maybe the Witness Protection them all, 2,00 families at a pop, they’ve never had to do this before, or this many this publicly. They still need to settle the land grab/water rights issues, which all Hawaii and their Governors were exposed as being evil, grubbing, vicious, family-cooking fiends. But the really, really need to close the UFO/Space Laser issue. People would ask,

    “Why aren’t we on the moon then?” “Wait: ARE we on the moon?”
    “Why are you spending $500B on bullets and tanks from 1979? Wait: ARE you spending it on bullets from 1979???” “Because just now it occurs to me you have no 777 shells for $10 Trillion spent over the last decade…”

    No little Billy. No, we are not. And we have that Space Plane too. Everything you know is a lie, but your poverty because of it, that’s very, very real.

    This is why Russia is very conservative with us. Because who has the Space lasers and whatever craft or method to deliver them? They could pop out of thin air any moment and arson all 500 square miles of Moscow. Literally 5 minutes later, all gone. The NeoCons may not know this, but they could find out and get control of them any time. Tread lightly.

    See the problems here?

    That to me is the only explanation for the provable facts we have.

    Around the internet: Like Victoria Nuland’s “cookies”, reports from Ukrainian POWs are that they round them up, don’t train them at all — like they ever touched a rifle 4x – drive them to the front, and give them pills.

    What pills? Nobody knows, but amphetamines, which is the old standard, but the Empire of Lies φαρμακεία pharmakeía has gotten so advanced they feel literally no fear and literally no pain. Like none, buppkus, zero, zip, nada.

    So when they show up in a truck and say “Cross that Minefield”, they do. They march right into it. Yay! #Winning! …Except BECAUSE they have no fear, no pain, and aren’t thinking straight, they just DRIVE the Bradley INTO the minefield, get out and WALK on the mines. THAT is how this operation is being done. 400,000 times.

    Ukraine didn’t build the showers; they let Russia build the showers and just provide transportation for all 1M Ukrainians to be herded into them. This. Is actually happening. And probably has been for months or the whole time but we haven’t gotten reports since there’s not but 5 reporters remaining in the 600 Million man West.

    So we now know HOW they do it: pharmakeía. Drug runners, drug dealers, their core competency and income. What I don’t get is what the GENERALS are thinking. (What Am I saying? They’re also on drugs.) Running useful men into a minefield is NOT WINNING sirs, I think that’s pretty clear, it always was clear, and having done it to 100,000 young men, is way clearer now. As JB would say, you need their COMPETENCY, not their bodies, they NEED to fear, or they won’t dodge the mines, clever a way around them, charge forward when intelligent to do so, and actually meet the Russians someday which they haven’t yet once.

    Okay, next: That means they’ll do that here. To us. If they have it, they’ll use it. How about in a prison? How about in a city? I’ll dump it in the Fentanyl since I’m the major drug supplier in the first place and it’s all my Zeta MS-13 proxies running the place. What else do they have? An anger drug? A sex or lust drug? Etc. So like the Joker, I’ll put it in the water supply. Then the city clears itself so I can buy up that real estate on the cheap. Literally, it’s hard to grasp but they think like this 24/7.

    Celtic: how many have to die before they grasp this? Apparently all of them. So your opinion of White people is not that great. We have a 6-sigma death rate, on our own numbers, in the insurance industry, triple checked, no earthly reason, starting DAY of vaccination, OF their children – neither notice nor care. Not a whit. Double heart attack at 14, no curiosity or care. Not from parents, not from doctors. At some point I have to say I guess they want it and deserve it – and this is awful because this is how they think. But as others say, — I – said things. — I – lived that solar/farming example. Zero uptake, at least visibly, though your life is forfeit for it. And the authorities are up your colon hourly both because you do work and because you appear to have stuff to steal. Like the Vikings, but Vikings are honorable in comparison.

    Who gets through is their own choice. What can I say? I can’t do it for them and I tried.

    “Nuland, Blinken, Sullivan, and Biden — and we are destroying Ukraine.”

    Yes, and they believe it. But who really benefits? Russia. RUSSIA is going to own and control Ukraine, and all the rabid, brainwashed Ukrainians are dead. The nation the size of France is “empty”. They made a play to do this to Russia, to run a coup and force it into Euro-sphere, and now Russia is going to put them back in the SlavicSphere like the actual election of Yukunovitch said.

    But a million Ukrainians have to die for it? Well, that’s the NeoCons for ya. And the Ukrainians, who didn’t tear their own government apart in resistance. I can’t stop it, consequences for actions exist despite reports to the contrary.

    “• Biden Dragged US Into Proxy War With Russia That Moscow Is Winning – MTG (Sp.)

    Here’s what the NeoCons did: Ukraine is Empty. Russia controls it. A nation the size and wealth of France. You do the math.

    Biden: I pray he does NOT start helping America the way he helps Ukraine. #Helping! So much!!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dax_(rapper) “saying that apologizing was the right thing to do because he did not want a fight to break out.” …Well, he’s Canadian. We’ll somehow just have to tolerate statements like that.

    Btw it amuses me that Oliver was probably prophesied a few years ago as the “Dog Poet” who was going to make such a splash.

    Kunstler: As my above, he’s nowhere near Red-pilled enough. Meaning suspicious enough and identifying what’s really going on. That’s okay, just saying that’s why what he says won’t and never happens. Year after year, decades. His job is to pull people in the right direction which he does tirelessly. And to be honest, which he is sort of, but reluctant to get ahead of his audience and limits himself sorely. I did get ahead of my audience and that limits me sorely.

    “allowing his son to use Air Force Two to jet set around the world”

    That must be really expensive! And what’s the Carbon footprint on that? When it was 1-2x I didn’t mind. Even one more than that is a scandal.

    ““This is one of the most devastating things that can happen to all of us,” Greene claimed.”

    She’s not wrong, but to be honest and give fair value is the worst thing that can happen? You are seriously off the path.

    On BRICS, Luongo just posted. No BRICS gold standard, no surprise, so if they’re keeping your eye off the ball, where IS the ball? He says in geography. The nations who were added and the infrastructure done has now basically end-run all the British Empire/Oceana choke points worldwide. AND pretty far along going around every financial choke point too. https://tomluongo.me/2023/09/01/brics-summit-proves-geography-trumps-currency/

    Losing Africa, France was holding that colony for us — “us” being West oligarchs – and as they have no power, the Pentagon is trying to hold it instead, pushing France out – strictly practical – but it’s already too late. That they both didn’t know and have no coherent response shows how small and far behind they are. Losing losers who lose. But the Pentagon shut down to “America First” like decades ago when Bush lost WWIII Gwot.

    “• Conflict Should Be Transferred to ‘Russian Territory’ – Ukraine Spy Chief (RT)

    They are doing this regularly I hear, but the Western Press reports nothing. Both because they report nothing but also because they would have to admit we attack Russia proper AND those attacks are all civilian. Russia doesn’t report it (to us in the West) because we don’t care, we don’t matter to them, everybody in Russia already knows, and it would give them leverage to escalate a war they’re handily winning. The whole POINT of non-stop terrorist run directly out of London MI6 is to MAKE Russia overreact and do something not in their interest. Why help?

    Note from Russia: ALL of the attacks are on Russian territory as they consider all 4 oblasts completely Russian, as Russian as the Leningrad Oblast. So looking from the other guy’s point of view, the article is problematic or makes no sense. The whole war is “In Russia”.

    ““$1,000-$2,000 a month, I think, is kind of low.”

    Yes that is not happening. Anywhere in Ukr they just conscript you on the highway. Anywhere else they get paid and money is no object as we (they) print it by hundred-billions. $30K/yr to be in a war zone? Uh, no, people won’t accept that pay per year to work at IHOP, much less be killed.

    “It all fell apart with the murder of Gaddafi.”

    This was intentional, the Empire of Lies and the Party of Chaos. But they’re so impossibly pin-headed they don’t seem to understand what “Chaos” means. It means OUT of control. And now all Africa is out of your control. Congratulations, that’s what you wanted, right? Oh, so you thought putting everything out of control would put you in control? Hahahahahaha! That’s not how history works, you drooling illiterate.

    “What’s in the box? What is it?” — Se7en. You don’t know what’s in the box until you open it. No one does. But it says “Whoop-ass” on the side.

    Btw I’m embarrassed and deeply annoyed I know nothing about Africa. Nor can I, virtually nothing is ever published. I know I should and would like to, but there’s a 400-year blackout on news from them, what each country and leader are, a place larger and more vital than useless, dreadful, pointless, backward, Europe. Same as Mexico here, our closest neighbor. Do we hear any news from them? Not on your life. Never. Elections in Durango, separations on their Central American border? Never ever ever. Heck, most places block out the WEATHER from Mexico and Canada, just leaving blank space. Why?

    Ego. I am the Universe. I am God. Nothing else matters.

    “History’s Starting to Rhyme – The Fight for Uranium (Jim Rickards)

    Like all resources, we have lots of Uranium, lots of mines, lots of companies here and in Canada. There’s no shortage at all. We just won’t employ people and use them. Hillary’s too busy selling them all to Russia.

    We also have the largest copper, silver, rare earth mines, all closed by the EPA. And why not? Drink the other guy’s milkshake.

    “JPMorgan Flagged Over $1 Billion In Suspicious Epstein Transfers (ZH)

    Exactly, why 16 years later? Go to Luongo: forget about the content, WHY are you telling me this? Why today? Because Europe is trying to trash Morgan and Jamie Dimon who are opposing them. There’s no longer risk only and because Epstein is dead. Reporters are so stupid they can’t realize they’re being used. 16 years old? GTFO of here with that stuff. Any editor worth his salt would throw you on the street, which is why we don’t have any, only editors who do what they’re told. By their billionaire, globalist, owners, i.e. Davos.

    YES Morgan did this. Dimon did this, and far worse. Newsflash: they’re doing it RIGHT NOW and 100x worse. You think Epstein is the only Pedo handler on planet earth? So…you really, really, REALLY don’t care, do you? You’re doing everything BUT “saving the childrens”, aren’t you?

    Post one who is active TODAY, and his client list, and we’ll talk. It’s easy. There are hundreds and they all bank with you, the Western Banking system. You buy jumbo jets for drug cartels every day. But $600 off eBay? Hammer time.

    Nobody wanted to start BRICS… this happened because of our weaponization of the U.S. dollar and weaponization of our foreign policy,” says Democratic presidential candidate @RobertKennedyJr.

    Kennedy the faux-Jew. Weaponization of foreign policy, like your panchant for Palestinian blood? You are an amoral shit, we can see that, so we will judge you on that, Your competitors are the same. Who weaponsized that dollar, the farmer or the tribe surrounding Biden? Kennedy, the faux-Jew, lover of the deaths of Palestinians, is now turning against BRICS, using BRICS as his campaign bullshit. It is the result of his own Zionism, so it means nothing, Kennedy is preposterous, this man is a bought CIA agent, only the chemically-unintelligent Americans could ever buy this shit. Kennedy, the master of the composting of the USA. How did the Kennedy name land in the gutter?

    A real ballot in November 2024 would pit Trump & Greene aginst Kennedy & Gabbard.
    The imperial court needs to change “leadership” this winter.
    I seek to avoid hope (last/worst curse from Pandora’s box), but it would be historically elegant if such a sudden transition occurred, perhaps sparked by the Ukrainian “government” falling to somewhat-rational military “patriots”, who would negotiate a deal with Russia to keep Odessa as a self-governing Oblast or something, like what Donetsk and Luhansk were agreed to be in Minsk, while declaring Ukrainian “neutrality”.

    Related to “How much Do Mercenaries make in Ukraine?”

    Lots of ‘rich’ Ukranians here! (Switz.) A parallel question is, how much it costs for men to leave the country, escape the draft?

    News. Aug 2023, *Zelensky sacks 112 Regional Recruiters*, see e.g. Sydney M. Herald.

    https://tinyurl.com/3fbj3z52

    That Zelensky and his ‘Gvmt’ did not know about this corruption is fantastical. What happened, imho, is that some creepy / alarmed / flaming furious US entity ( > get more bodies to attack the Russkies) ordered Zel to clean this up.

    As if firing ppl would help… the replacements will be more rapacious, if that even happens.

    — The below is *anecdotal* from CH. —

    In April – Aug 2022 (thereabouts) the price to leave UKR, cash to the border guards, was 5K Euros. Those who could scrape that up for a loved one / family member did so. Of course rich ppl just flew to Cyprus, the US, Germany, Switz, etc. (Leaving via the Donbass, other story, imho.)

    Since then, the price has risen, to around 7 – 10 K Euros. Perhaps a typical ex. of biz drying up because of charging more, killing the biz? Idk…

    Escaping the draft legally, another way. Fathers of 3 children under (afaik) 14 – 16 (or so?), were (are?) exempt re. the draft, under UKR law, and could thus leave the country with the kiddos.

    This has lead to an Exodus with children in tow, some of them roped in, easy to organise .. one missing birth certif. for a one year old, etc. A form of child exploitation?

    There were, are, other ways, as well. One man I spoke to became an int’l truck driver, and then abandoned his job and his truck in a European country applied for refugee status.

    Canada’s woke nightmare: A warning to the West | Documentary


    Under Justin Trudeau, Canada has sought to position itself as the global bastion of progressive politics. In my latest Telegraph documentary, seen above, I went to the former British colony to find out how Canadians are dealing with Trudeau’s radical reforms; from the promotion of gender ideology in schools and the mass legalisation of drugs, to his extreme new suicide laws and clamp downs on freedom of speech.

    I began my investigation in one of the country’s most liberal cities, Vancouver. Possession of up to 2.5 grams of hard drugs, including heroin, cocaine and fentanyl, has been legalised in the city as part of a three year experiment which began in January of this year. If the aim was to combat the opioid crisis that already beset the city then it appears there is still much to be done as vast tent sites line the streets, patrolled by roaming zombie-like drug addicts.

    As we filmed on Hastings Street, infamous as the epicentre of Vancouver’s homelessness crisis, I witnessed a topless man shoot a needle into his arm five feet from me. Though it wasn’t quite as bad as San Francisco, where my cameraman and I came under attack from angry vagrants, the scenes were still shocking.

    It’s not just the homeless who patrol the streets of Vancouver. Chris Elston, better known online as Billboard Chris, campaigns against the imposition of gender ideology on children, whether through Canada’s education system or via dangerous operations to “transition” young adults. As his nickname suggests, Chris walks around Vancouver wearing signs protesting gender ideology, encouraging lively debates with passers-by which he puts on YouTube.

    Chris kindly allowed our crew to join him on a walkabout, where we found many Canadians horrified by the use of puberty blockers in children and the promotion of biological men in women’s sports.

    We did encounter some opposition of course, mostly through the odd shout or flicking of the finger. So much for Canadian politeness.

    One aggressive gentleman, tall, ageing and angry, began a tirade against Chris with the rather bizarre singular message that he is “queer”.

    Part of Canada’s social revolution can also be witnessed in its extreme new euthanasia laws. In 2016, the ruling Liberal Party passed legislation enabling assisted suicide for terminally ill Canadians. Next year the legislation will be expanded to include those with mental health problems. As Christianity declines across Canada, and the liberal obsession with “bodily autonomy” and “personal freedom” reaches its logical conclusion, a new dystopia is forming. As Dr Konia Trouton, a euthanasia advocate, told me, “we are an organised society but within that organisation we have to allow some freedoms and opportunities, this is not a communist system where we can try and reign that in”. The campaign group Euthanasia Prevention Coalition estimates that 13,500 people chose state-assisted suicide last year.

    To prevent wokeism from spreading it is important to have a strong opposition party. Canada’s Conservatives have been historically weak in pushing back against Trudeau, however, their recently elected leader, Pierre Poilievre, has injected fresh energy into the party. Whilst there are some who still question Poillievre’s conservative credentials, his strategy seems to be working; one recent poll gave his party a twelve point lead over Trudeau’s Liberals.

    However, the most successful opponents to Canada’s social revolution have so far not been politicians but members of the public. Our film highlights some of these brave individuals, including Dr Jordan Peterson, perhaps the most high-profile Canadian in the world other than the country’s leader.

    During my travels I found ordinary people appalled at Canada’s surrender to drug dealers, its contempt for freedom of speech, its enforcement of gender ideology on children and a breezy willingness to terminate the lives of its own citizens. However, for all the depressing stories of people losing their jobs, or being hounded by the government, these cases were equally inspirational. Whilst Canada is a warning to the West, there are also individual messages of hope from those brave individuals fighting for their freedom.

    ​ Gilbert Doctorow , Western leaders are all fighting for their survival in power. Where does this lead? To war! [Discussing only European leaders here!]
    ​ However, we note that the drone attack that destroyed Russian military aircraft at the Pskov airport in Russia’s northwest region a day ago is said to have been launched from Estonian territory.
    ​ So far, Moscow has not reacted to what could and should be a casus belli with a NATO Member State. But how much longer will Putin show forbearance?
    These are very dangerous times and the weakness of Western leadership points to more, not less war.

    Western leaders are all fighting for their survival in power.

    ​ Tom Luongo hits a whole lot of important financial-geopolitics points here. Best summary yet on the BRICS summit last week.
    ​ BRICS Summit Proves Geography Trumps Currency
    ​ While everyone is talking de-dollarization, the real currency losing it’s position in global trade is the euro. But no one is talking about de-eruoization. I guess it doesn’t roll off the tongue as well?
    ​ According to the latest data from the SWIFT RMB Tracker, there is no currency that has lost more ground in global trade than the euro. In just over two years the euro has fallen from 39.5% of global payments outside the euro-zone to just 13.6%.​
    ​ The dollar absorbed most of those payments with the British pound, Japanese yen and, yes, the Chinese renminbi taking up the rest.
    ​ So, the great distraction about de-dollarization is, in part, about paying no attention to the rapid demise of the euro and the emerging sovereign bond crisis that ECB President Christine Lagarde works everyday to paper over.​..
    ​..But, back to the BRICS. If de-dollarization wasn’t the point of the Summit this year, then what was?
    Expansion.
    And not just expansion for the sake of expansion, but geographically strategic expansion.​..
    ..But it is the 5 countries clustered around the center of global trade that should grab your attention. Because all talk of a BRICS common currency are nothing more than theatre if there isn’t a fully developed alternative financial supply chain to capture the profits and minimize currency risks and friction for all the members…
    I​ran:
    ​ So, let’s start with the easy one. Iran, in my book, has been the “I” in BRICS for years. Because with India constantly keeping everyone off-balance, much like Erdogan in Turkey, that incentivized Russia and China to invest heavily in Iran, as a counterpoint, making it the key to both China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and Russia’s long-desired International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC).
    ​ India dragged their feet for so long on their contracted work on the Iranian port at Chabahar, that Iran nullified the contract, handed it to China, who then finished the work in less time than it took for Iran to get India on the phone to complain about it.​..
    ..Both the ports at Chabahar and Bandar Abbas now serve to get Asian trade, especially coming from Russia, exits beyond the choke points around the Mediterranean, Red, and Black Seas.
    ​ So, Iran was always going to be the first country added to the bloc. It quickly put India on notice to stop playing games.​..
    Saudi Arabia:
    ​ With the successful intervention by Russia in Syria, and their own disastrous results in the War in Yemen, it was only a matter of time before Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) came to his senses.
    ​ Saudi Arabia’s future was with the BRICS not the remnants of the British empire. As an aside here, I talk about Neocons all the time and the best way to think of them, beyond their hatred of pretty much the rest of the world, is to see them as the inheritors of the British empire’s foreign policy.​..
    ..Saudi Arabia had no other option than to go along with its OPEC+ partner, Russia, if MbS wants the country to survive the end of its oil reserves…
    U​nited Arab Emirates:
    The UAE addition is definitely part of the currency discussion. Dubai and Abu Dhabi have rapidly become centers for strategic commodities trading with very successful and deepening gold and oil trading…
    ​..In order to even talk about some form of gold-backed trade settlement system, there has to be a deep and liquid supply chain and financial industry in place to facilitate both that settlement and minimize the storage risks to gold and currency risks of the alliance members trading bilaterally without the dollar as the intermediate.
    ​ So, adding Dubai as one node in that network outside of China’s control was important to building trust there. Having multiple exchanges, vaults, and refineries simplifies everything. And, with that, minimizes the ‘convenience premium’ of using the US dollar and maximizing members’ use of local currencies with gold acting as the universal trust layer and a blockchain for back office and auditing functions.
    ​ So, first, you add the financial center, then you start really talking the whole “Gold-Backed BRICS Currency.” Order of operations matters folks.
    ​ The UAE was necessary to get India to even consider going along with Russia and China on this idea, which is why the UAE dirham will be the settlement currency between India and Russia on oil sales, and not the ruble. It both creates validity for a third party while also keeps India free from directly contravening US sanctions on buying Russian energy.​..
    Argentina:
    ​ It shouldn’t be underestimated how much the IMF and European corruption have wr​eaked [wrought] havoc in Argentina over the years. This is another resource-rich country that has been kept under constant upheaval which now has the opportunity, like Egypt, to get out from underneath the IMF’s thumb, depriving vulture capitalists all across the west the opportunity to plunder the country one more time.
    ​ Adding Argentina should see the development money necessary to build out its significant shale reserves at Vaca Muerta make its way into the country. This stabilizes its foreign exchange reserves and access to the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) gives it an alternative to the IMF loan sharks.
    ​ The upcoming elections could quickly become a referendum on IMF requirements and capital controls.​ [Argentine elites ​own most of Argentina’s $US debt.]​…​Egypt and Ethiopia:
    Egypt is a fascinating turn of events, because Egypt’s financial weakness was the very thing to create a strategic opportunity for Russia and China to make President Al-Sisi a great offer. Use our New Development Bank and stiff the International Monetary Fund if they won’t negotiate a debt write-down.
    Like what’s in front of Argentina, Egypt now has leverage in negotiations they didn’t have before.
    Either way the IMF loses here, because Egypt has an alternative lender it can force a write-down by the IMF for the first time ever or they can just default. China is already willing to forgive $8 billion in Egypt’s debt while the IMF is holding fast only to restructuring.And if you think Egypt doesn’t have this leverage here let’s not forget that the Suez Canal still handles 12% of global trade daily. The BRICS bloc now have a political ally that controls the Suez.
    ​ With Ethiopia, along with Russia’s deft diplomacy with both Eretria and China’s with Djibouti where they have port access, the BRICS now has effectively unfettered access to the Red Sea. The pressure will mount for Eretria and Djibouti to make peace with Ethiopia, thus opening up trade in eastern Africa.
    ​ Access to or circumventing the historic chokepoints to global trade has been a long-held goal of both Russia and China. And it looks like with these additions to the BRICS bloc, they have finally achieved that.​..
    ​..The Neocons struck geopolitical gold with blowing up Nordstream, depriving Germany and France of much needed gas. Things are so bad in Germany that they are now quietly dismantling their wind farms to rebuild coal-fired plants, going back to the one energy source they have in abundance in Europe.
    ​ Now Africa is in revolt against France. Last month it was Niger. This month it is Gabon. There is no way France can respond to all of these revolts on their own. They need outside intervention and it doesn’t look like it’s coming.
    ​ Queen Warmonger Vicky Nudelman went to Niger and was rebuffed. Reports are now circulating that she and her staff were caught completely by surprise with events in Africa and had no solutions, offers or even credible threats to bring to bear.​..
    ​..If you map Nuland to the UK/US Neocons who are not necessarily aligned with Davos then this report should shock you, because it tells us that neither are capable of moving into the power vacuum left by these juntas seizing power.​
    ​ It says, with little equivocation, that all of the colonial powers of Europe are paper tigers… ​
    ​..The BRIC​S bloc understands that their best course of action is to continue building new relationships, networks, and pressuring the centuries-old colonial networks that have financed their power.​ Staying out of a direct hot war simply makes good strategic sense. Attrition is a bitch, energetically.​..
    ​..Against that backdrop, de-dollarization is the least of their worries. It will be the thing that grinds away in the background, like Powell’s shrinking the Fed’s balance sheet, and will just emerge out of these events.
    ​ The choice the West is now facing is at what point do they stop fighting this and finally come to the negotiating table. Some factions, like the US military and the banking sector, have already made their intentions clear.​ [Adaptation​ to changing realities, I believe.]
    ​ The others? Not so much.

    ​ But … there’s that “time” thing. There’s the rub.
    My opinion is, if the CCP is succeeding, in other words if it shows significant progress in establishing a robust parallel international order that can shield it from US economic aggression, the US will start a hot war to see if it can truly f*ck China up.

    The reality that 90% of US businesses that were operating in Russia prior to the war (3,000 to be exact)), are STILL operating in Russia creates a real and actual physical reality conundrum that is so utterly bizarre that it is FASCINATING.

    First of all, let’s stipulate at the outset the common knowledge that it is “corporate America” who is waging proxy war against Russia (via its vassals and proxy nations and alliances), for the explicitly stated purpose of subjugating the government of the the Russian Federation, and taking control over all of their stuff and all of their people. That’s who’s doing it. The tippy top of that corporate/money/power hierarchy may still be a bit blurry to us mere chattel, but the GENERAL fact is that the heretofore masters of financial wealth and power are the ones who are financially, informationally and militarily attacking Russia, and they have total conquest in mind.

    Okay, That’s no surprise. It’s BAD but it isn’t totally nonsensical. The peculiar part is that Russia is LETTING those American businesses continue to make money inside Russia and to send the money home to America so that it can come back in the form of aggressively hostile anti-Russian sanctions , and as actual bombs, bullets and blitzkrieg that are killing tens of thousands of Russian citizens and hundreds of thousands of ethnically Russian Ukrainians.

    THAT is what I find so shockingly nonsensical that it fascinates.

    It would be like the United States allowing Japan to openly operate businesses in Honolulu to send money back home for aircraft carriers and warplanes to attack Pearl Harbor again (only more decisively this second time around).

    How can that even BE? Are these American businesses inside Russia subjected to the same financial, banking and other sanctions that their Russian partners are subjected to around much of the world? Such privileged treatment would certainly give them a decisive edge over their domestically Russian counterparts. I can see how the American side of it would see that as a sweet deal (use their competitor’s money to sanction and bomb them into helplessness) but why would the apparent victim go along with such an outrageously scam?

    What I have trouble imagining is that Russia would let 3000 of their sworn enemies take money from Russia and use the money to obliterate Russia. It strikes me as too crazy to even imagine UNLESS the international corporate consortium is so powerful, even inside Russia, that the NATION of Russia (its actual population) is not politically powerful enough to prevent the use of Russian resources to kill Russian people. That sort of behavior is ritual humiliation, forcing a victim to accept the unacceptable in order to annihilate all opposition and establish absolute power over them.

    In other words, the SAME thing that those supra-national corporations are doing to you and me at this very moment.

    Like I said, too crazy to even imagine. But not too crazy to be true.

    ​ Sasha Latypova, The Real Purpose of the SV40 Promoter in Covid Injections (I really edited this down to the essential core information.)
    ​ Besides being extremely problematic due to large quantities of DNA found in the vials, the most alarming finding was the SV40 promoter in the DNA plasmid sequence. This part was not disclosed by Pfizer to the regulators. Therefore, they encoded a “stealth gene” in the sequence! This falls squarely into Air Force’s (JASON group) definition of a biological weapon…
    ​..Absolutely stunning isn’t it? To summarize: Pfizer encoded an undisclosed “gene” into the DNA matrix from which mRNA is being made for covid injections. Then they left huge amounts of this raw material in the final product. The purpose of this undisclosed component is to ensure that whatever it is attached to is delivered not just into the cell, but into the cell’s nucleus (where the human DNA resides). Let’s remember however, that humans do not have some sort of a central DNA place that can be modified for the whole body. Human body consists of trillions of cells, each with the nucleus containing DNA (except red blood cells), and the majority of cells in the body are a variety of non-human cells (microbiome) with their own DNAs.
    ​ Microbial cells may replicate quickly, such as e.coli that live in our gut who will pick up the plasmids if they end up there and start replicating them and spewing spike, dying off, shedding, etc. Furthermore, the SV40 promoter ensures that the “cargo” is delivered to the nuclei of the cells that are not dividing or slowly dividing, such as neurons, cardiac cells, skeletal and smooth muscle cells. The latter are cells that line the gastrointestinal tract, all blood vessels, bladder and uterus. These cells are not dividing normally, because they reached terminal differentiation which is critical for normal body growth and function. However the cells retain ability to divide, which can be functional (uterine cells during normal pregnancy), or, can be a source of pathology – abnormal cell growth leading to cancer. That’s why SV40 promoter is associated with cancer. It delivers foreign cargo into the nuclei of cells that are not supposed to divide, but may begin this malignant process due to being hacked by the foreign cargo…
    ​..Lastly, a recent study by Italian researchers have demonstrated beyond any doubt that approximately 50% of vaccinated individuals produce spike protein continuously when measured at 6 months after the last injection. Igor Chudov wrote a very good explainer on this. The Italian team also states that this is likely because of 1) some human cells get transfected and the modified RNA is reverse transcribed into genomes of those cells or 2) microbial cells in the blood pick up the foreign material (it can be RNA or plasmids or both) and also become spike spewing factories. Or both things happen in various places in the body. This does not happen in unvaccinated people whether or not they are positive for covid by PCR, so that’s definitely not whatever is called “covid infection”.

It has authority to inform, announce, and apprise—but not to endorse, denounce, or advise,” Judge Don Willett wrote for a panel that also included Jennifer Walker Elrod and Edith Brown Clement. “The Doctors have plausibly alleged that FDA’s Posts fell on the wrong side of the line between telling about and telling to.”

    I was thinking about it. They might be using big chemical lasers, but that is a lot of single-burst packets of chemicals to get up to space, each probably like a 50 gallon drum to make one burn circle, and then iit is used…
    How many bburned circles? How many 50 gallon drums?

    The simplest way to implement a laser weapon is to use mirrors. The USA is very good at putting mirrors into space – they are very light – and they can probably get 90% of the energy of any laser weapon to any point on the surface of the earth. Putting a very heavy nuclear reactor or battery into space would require real rocket technology, something only Russia has, so the Americans would have to use mirrors with maybe three different mirrors involved to reach anywhere on earth. Another point, is that nuclear reactors require heavy maintenance, so even more difficult. Even mirrors are very unlikely because the USA is basically incompetent in everything other than electronics, but they could pay Japan or Germany to do it for them. There are other intermediate options, including the powering of satelites from the ground, so laser in the sky, energy source on the ground, but let’s face it, the USA is not there, it cannot do that stuff.
