In the same day, two US MSM publications, Newsweek and NYT, go against what has so far been the official view on Ukraine. As Zelensky is in Washington/NYC. That can’t be a coincidence.

First, a Newsweek piece authored by “Daniel L. Davis , Senior Fellow, Defense Priorities”. Apart from admitting that Ukraine is screwed, he has some numbers that made me think:

“Ukraine was reported to have lost 17,500 troops in the first year of the war..”

That appears to be a official US number. Col. Macgregor estimated some 20x more for the first year. Then came the “spring offensive”:

“.. it is presently assessed to have lost a breathtakingly high 50,000 additional deaths, for a total of 70,000 dead and 120,000 wounded..”

So in 3 months, they had 3 times more deaths than in the entire first year, which included the Bakhmut meat grinder. And you think: maybe he just doesn’t know, this “senior fellow”. But then he comes with:

“Rather than repeating over the next year and a half what has already not worked—potentially costing Ukraine yet additional hundreds of thousands of losses..”

And I thought: he does know. He goes from “breathtakingly high 50,000 additional deaths” to “additional hundreds of thousands of losses”. It’s in the way he phrases it.

We Can No Longer Hide the Truth About the Russia-Ukraine War (Newsweek)

As leading American politicians, generals, and pundits continue advocating for open-ended support to Kyiv in their war against Russia, a sober, accurate analysis of Ukraine’s nearly completed summer offensive reveals that the heroic sacrifice Ukraine continues to make is producing little to no meaningful progress toward the objective of evicting Russia from Ukraine’s territory. Washington should instead employ a necessary course correction and form a new policy, based on the harsh, ground-truth combat realities in Ukraine. Revising the objectives would give Washington and Kyiv a chance to preserve Ukrainian lives and American interests. Washington’s current policies do neither. Despite great hopes for a rapid success, Ukraine’s months-in-the-making offensive has sputtered from the outset.

That shouldn’t have surprised anyone in the White House. On April 5, two months before the start of the offensive, I wrote that “Zelensky’s troops—with little to no air power and a dearth in artillery ammunition—could suffer egregious casualties while gaining little.” Five days later, The Washington Post revealed the contents of a leaked Top Secret U.S. intelligence assessment which likewise predicted the Ukrainian offensive would probably fall “well short” of expectations, and that “enduring Ukrainian deficiencies in training and munitions supplies probably will strain progress and exacerbate casualties during the offensive.” Total Ukrainian deaths in the war at that point were estimated to be as low as 17,500. About a month before the start of the offensive, I again warned that the odds were stacked heavily against Kyiv.

To succeed, I explained, Ukraine would “have to conduct the most difficult task in modern land warfare: a combined arms operation into the teeth of a dug-in enemy force that is prepared for an attack,” complicated by the shortage of artillery ammunition along with “limited airpower and minimal air defense.” Nevertheless, on the eve of battle, some Western analysts remained optimistic. Once the offensive began on June 5, however, that optimism quickly evaporated. In the first two weeks of the fighting, Ukraine’s spearhead brigades suffered massive losses in armor and personnel while capturing virtually no territory. By the end of the third week, they had lost an estimated fifth of their strike force, requiring Ukraine to dramatically change tactics. Instead of leading with tanks and other armored vehicles (which were predictably getting chewed up in minefields and by Russian anti-tank missiles and artillery shells), Ukraine moved to an infantry-centric attack system.

While this change did result in producing incremental gains, the cost was exorbitant. On Aug. 29, the BBC reported that new leaked reports suggested Ukrainian battle deaths exploded since the offensive started. Whereas Ukraine was reported to have lost 17,500 troops in the first year of the war, it is presently assessed to have lost a breathtakingly high 50,000 additional deaths, for a total of 70,000 dead and 120,000 wounded. If it wasn’t clear to Washington before the offensive started that the fundamentals of combat operations and principles of war indicated Ukraine would likely fail, it should now be crystal clear. Although Ukraine appears to have finally penetrated the first line of Russia’s main defense, the most difficult part of Russia’s defensive system has yet to be overcome: the hundreds of kilometers of dragon’s teeth, tank ditches, and yet more vast minefields.

It is unclear at this point whether Ukraine has enough striking power remaining in its offensive forces to reach, much less penetrate, Russia’s second main line—beyond which is a third main line followed by a fortress-defense at Tokmak, which is still 75 road kilometers from the Azov coast. Given these realities, the best Ukraine can likely do for the rest of the year is to hold what they have and prevent the possibility of losing more territory to a potential Russian counteroffensive this fall. [..] Rather than repeating over the next year and a half what has already not worked—potentially costing Ukraine yet additional hundreds of thousands of losses—it’s time to try something that has a chance to succeed. In other words, it’s time to acknowledge objective reality and employ policies that can work.

Here’s the New York Times welcoming gift to Zelensky. While he’s at the United Nations, the paper calls him a liar, to his face.

I’ve seen quite a few comments on this, and not one ponders that perhaps this was a deliberate Ukraine attack. Would that be so far-fetched?

NYT Exposes Zelensky Lie About Donbass Missile Strike (RT)

A New York Times investigation revealed on Monday that Ukrainian forces were mostly likely responsible for a deadly missile strike at a market, which happened the same day US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited the country. The incident on September 6 in the Kiev-controlled Donbass city of Konstantinovka killed at least 15 civilians and injured scores of others. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky immediately accused Russia of launching the strike and claimed that any “attempts to deal with anything Russian” meant turning a blind eye to “the audacity of evil.” Many Western media outlets and some governments endorsed his statement.

The NYT said evidence pointed to a “tragic mishap” involving a Ukrainian anti-air Buk missile that apparently veered off course. The newspaper analyzed missile fragments, satellite imagery, witness accounts, and social media posts to come to the conclusion. It noted that Ukrainian authorities tried to prevent journalists from accessing the impact site. Some people unsympathetic to the Russian cause, including Bild journalist Julian Ropcke and the open-source intelligence analysis group CIT suggested Kiev’s responsibility shortly after the incident. The Ukrainian government indicated that it considered Russian guilt to be beyond any doubt.

“What would an investigation be needed for, if all is obvious for us?” Zelensky’s senior aide Mikhail Podoliak told the media at the time. He called any other scenario, including a Ukrainian error, “ridiculous.” The missile was apparently one of the two fired by Ukrainian forces from the outskirts of the town of Druzhkovka some 15 km to the northwest of Konstantinovka, NYT reported. The projectile was likely a 9M38 model used by the Buk system, the newspaper concluded based on forensic evidence. Considering the short distance from the presumed launch point, it probably crashed with much of its fuel unspent, and the subsequent explosion left scorch marks at the scene.

Russian Ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia mentioned the incident in a speech last week, suggesting that Kiev may have orchestrated it deliberately to coincide with Blinken’s visit. He added that as the evidence clearly contradicts Zelensky’s accusation, “the Kiev regime and its sponsors are trying to hush up this story and keep it off radar.” At least one Kiev official has been forced to resign after attributing a strike to Ukrainian forces that his government had pinned on Russia. Aleksey Arestovich quit his post as an advisor to the president in January, amid pressure over an interview in which he suggested that an apartment block in the city of Dnepr was hit by a Ukrainian interceptor rather than a Russian cruise missile. The Russian military has maintained since the start of the conflict that it only targets military objectives in its operations.

“What would an investigation be needed for, if all is obvious for us?”

NYT Spreading ‘Conspiracy Theories’ On Ukrainian Missile Strike – Podoliak (RT)

Claims that Ukraine was responsible for killing at least 15 civilians in a missile strike on a Donbass market are “conspiracy theories,” Mikhail Podoliak, a top adviser to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, has declared. The New York Times has suggested that the missile involved was Ukrainian, not Russian. “No doubt, the appearance of articles in foreign media with doubts about Russia’s involvement in the attack on Konstantinovka entail the growth of conspiracy theories,” Podoliak wrote on X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday. Promising that the incident would be investigated by Ukrainian authorities, Podoliak added that “society will surely receive an answer to the question of what exactly happened in Kostiantynivka, as in the thousands of other instances of Russian strikes on our country as part of an unprovoked war.”

The strike took place on September 6, while US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was visiting Kiev. A missile struck a market in the Kiev-controlled Donbass city of Konstantinovka, killing 15 civilians and injuring scores of others. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky immediately accused Russia of launching the strike and claimed that any “attempts to deal with anything Russian” meant turning a blind eye to “the audacity of evil.” Although many Western media outlets and some governments endorsed his statement, doubt soon crept in. The New York Times reported on Monday that evidence from the scene pointed to a “tragic mishap”involving a Ukrainian anti-air Buk missile.

The newspaper analyzed missile fragments, satellite imagery, witness accounts, and social media posts to come to the conclusion, and noted that Ukrainian authorities tried to prevent journalists from accessing the impact site. At the time, Podoliak ridiculed the notion of investigating the strike.“What would an investigation be needed for, if all is obvious for us?” he said. In his post on Monday, the official insisted that Ukraine “exclusively conducts defensive actions, defending itself and its territories.”

However, Ukrainian forces have fired missiles at civilian targets before. In addition to its regular shelling of the Donetsk People’s Republic since 2014, Ukrainian forces have used Western-provided missiles to strike the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk, and repeatedly struck Donetsk with cluster munitions and aerially-dispersed landmines. Last March, a Ukrainian Tochka-Umissile was allegedly fired at a residential area of Donetsk, killing at least 20 people after it was downed by Russian air defense systems. Despite evidence from the ground showing the missile was Ukrainian in origin, Zelensky nevertheless blamed Russia for attacking its own people, insisting it was “unmistakably a Russian rocket” and that “there’s no point talking about it.”

“..you have this guy Zelensky, who’s billed as Mother Theresa… or reincarnation of Winston Churchill…And we’re learning more and more that this guy is a corrupt autocrat… He basically brought his own country to ruin, and he’s continuously begging for more and more weapons..”

Zelensky’s US Visit a ‘Dog & Pony Show’ to Plug Cracks in Ukraine Support (Sp.)

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky is foraying to the United States for the second time since Russia’s special operation began, having last been there in December 2022. Zelensky was offered a hero’s welcome at the time, as he addressed Congress touting Kiev’s battlefield “successes” while angling for continued Western aid. But roll the clock forward, and “take two” of the Zelensky “show” now comes against a much-changed backdrop: the overly heralded Ukraine counteroffensive “debacle,” huge losses in manpower and destroyed NATO-gifted weaponry, and an ever-stronger chorus of voices among Republican lawmakers against sending more money down the Ukraine sinkhole. What kind of change in tone and rhetoric can we expect from the leader of the Kiev regime as he attends the UN General Assembly in New York, and meets with congressional leaders and President Joe Biden in Washington?

“It’s going to be an extremely difficult visit for Zelensky,” Daniel McAdams, executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told Sputnik. “He [Zelensky] was hailed as the conquering hero… He was lionized in Congress… He gave a speech… He handed a flag to the vice president and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” recalled Daniel McAdams, adding that the Ukrainian president had vowed “Bakhmut [Artemovsk] would be a turning point in the war.” “He was right about that, but not in the way he expected. No, it’s a very, very different world now,” said the pundit. “Antony Blinken was just out there [and] he gave him a heads up as to what to expect. And I think you can tell by his [Ukrainian president’s] subsequent interview in The Economist, where Zelensky was very glum and very dark, and he said something like, ‘Well, all of these leaders say that they support us, but when I look in their eyes, I can tell they’re not telling the truth…’ So it’s going to be an extremely difficult visit from Zelensky to New York in Washington,” Daniel McAdams said.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken made a two-day surprise visit to Ukraine in early September, to announce more than $1 billion in aid for Kiev. However, the visit came as the third month of Ukraine’s botched counteroffensive ended with the Kiev regime unable to boast of any military gains. “Well, I think this dog and pony show is going to air. So, you know, you have this guy Zelensky, who’s billed as Mother Theresa… or reincarnation of Winston Churchill…And we’re learning more and more that this guy is a corrupt autocrat… He basically brought his own country to ruin, and he’s continuously begging for more and more weapons. You know, our societies are fraying, state legislatures are constantly saying they have no money for social programs, and yet they pull billions of dollars out of the hat for Ukraine,” Jeremy Kuzmarov, managing editor of the Covert Action magazine and the author of several books on US foreign policy, told Sputnik.

“..the EU has implemented 11 sets of sanctions against Russia..” And not learned a single thing.

EU Seeking Something Russian To Sanction – Bloomberg (RT)

The European Union is in the final stages of crafting its 12th set of Ukraine-related sanctions against Russia, as reported by Bloomberg on Monday, citing sources familiar with the ongoing discussions. According to the news outlet, this forthcoming package of sanctions is expected to concentrate on further measures to hinder Russia’s capacity to circumvent previously imposed restrictions, particularly its efforts to import sanctioned goods through intermediary countries, such as Türkiye and the UAE. Sources claim that the EU’s sanctions list may be expanded to align with the upcoming G7 ban on purchasing Russian diamonds, anticipated to be announced in the coming weeks. It envisions direct and indirect prohibitions on acquiring Russian diamonds starting from January 1.

Additionally, the new EU package is said to include a proposal regarding the potential utilization of profits generated by frozen assets belonging to the Central Bank of Russia. Discussions concerning the legality of seizing these assets to support Ukraine have been ongoing for months, with sources indicating that they may be nearing a resolution. Furthermore, the European Commission is expected to propose implementing a windfall tax on the earnings generated by Russian central bank assets within EU clearing houses. Certain member states, including Poland and the Baltic nations, have reportedly proposed additional restrictions on Russia’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports and IT services. Specific details regarding these proposals remain undisclosed.

This group of states has also advocated for sanctions targeting Russia’s nuclear industry. However, past efforts to sanction this sector have been waived, primarily because many countries, including many within the EU, depend on Russian atomic fuels. The announcement of this new sanctions package is anticipated in either the first half of October or during an EU-US summit slated for the next month. Since the commencement of Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine in February of the previous year, the EU has implemented 11 sets of sanctions against Russia, targeting various sectors of the Russian economy and its financial institutions. Some member states have reportedly expressed concerns that there is not much left to sanction while urging Brussels to enforce existing restrictions effectively.

“..The categorical imperative was simple: as long as Pyongyang did not start any trouble, Moscow and Beijing would be by its side..”

Russia, North Korea Stage ‘Strategic Coup’ Against Western Hegemony (Pepe Escobar)

The genesis of Kim Jong Un’s train journey to the Russian Far East – coinciding with the Forum, no less – is a masterful strategic coup that was in the works since 2014, at the time of the Maidan. Xi Jinping was still in the beginning of his first mandate; he had announced the New Silk Road exactly ten years ago, first in Astana and then in Jakarta. The DPRK was not supposed to be integrated into this vast pan-Eurasian project that would soon become China’s overarching foreign policy concept. The DPRK then was on a roll against the Hegemon, under Obama, and Beijing was no more than a worried spectator. Moscow, of course, was always focused on peace in the Korean Peninsula, especially because its geopolitical priorities in 2014 were Donbass and Syria/Iran. The last thing Moscow could afford was a war in Asia-Pacific.

Putin’s strategy was to send Defense Minister Shoigu to Beijing and Islamabad to calm it all down. Pakistan at the time was helping Pyongyang to weaponize their nuclear arsenal. Simultaneously, Putin himself approached Kim, offering serious guarantees: we’ve got your back if ever there is an attack by the Hegemon supported by Seoul. Even better: Putin got Xi himself to double down on the guarantees. The categorical imperative was simple: as long as Pyongyang did not start any trouble, Moscow and Beijing would be by its side. A sort of calm before any possible storm then set in – even if Pyongyang continued to test their missiles. So over the years, Kim’s mindset changed; he became convinced that Russia and China were his allies. The DPRK’s geoeconomic integration into Eurasia was seriously discussed in previous, pre-Covid editions of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.

That included the tantalizing possibility of a Trans-Korean Railway linking both North and South to the Far East, Siberia and the wider Eurasia. So Kim started to see the Big Eurasia Picture, and how Pyongyang could finally start to benefit geoeconomically from a closer association with the EAEU, SCO and BRI. This is how strategic diplomacy works: you invest during a decade, and then all the pieces fall into place when an armored train keeps-a-rollin’ across Primorsky Krai. From the perspective of a Russia-China-DPRK triangle, it’s no wonder the collective West has been reduced to the status of crying toddlers in a sandbox. The Hegemon’s puny US-Japan-South Korea axis to counter, simultaneously, China and the DPRK, is a joke compared to the DPRK’s brand-new role as a sort of Asia-Pacific Military District, adjacent to their immediate neighbor, the Russian Far East.

There will be military integration, of course, in missile defense, radars, ports, airfields. But the key vector, along the way, will be geoeconomic integration. Sanctions from now on are meaningless. No one in 2014 was seeing this all play out, except for a very sharp analyst who coined the precious Double Helix concept to define the still evolving, at the time, Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership. The Double Helix perfectly explains the full-spectrum geostrategic symbiosis between two civilization-states which happen to be former empires but since the middle of the previous decade willfully decided to accelerate their mutual drive to lead the Global Majority in the path towards multipolarity.

Biden Repeats ‘Unforgivable’ Remark About Putin (RT)

US President Joe Biden has described Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “dictator,” claiming that his main political opponent, former President Donald Trump, would “bow down to” him if elected in 2024. The Democrat also touted himself as a defender of US democracy. Speaking to supporters during a fundraiser at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in New York City on Monday, Biden said, “I will not side with dictators like Putin. Maybe Trump and his MAGA friends can bow down, but I won’t.” The incumbent president claimed that “Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans are determined to destroy American democracy,” whereas he would always “protect and fight” for it. This recent comment made by the US head of state about President Putin is not the first instance of him referring to another foreign leader as a dictator.

Last March, Biden told attendees of the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon that the US and its allies were standing together against a “murderous dictator, a pure thug who is waging an immoral war against the people of Ukraine.” A day prior, the US president said he considered Putin a “war criminal.” Commenting on Biden’s remarks at the time, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told TASS news agency that Moscow deemed “unacceptable and unforgivable such rhetoric from a head of state whose bombs have killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world.” He noted that the US leader had resorted to “personal insults,” a level that President Putin, a “thoughtful and wise leader,” would never stoop to. sLast month, several US media outlets also quoted President Biden as alleging that China is run by “bad folks.” In June, he described Chinese President Xi Jinping as a “dictator,” which Beijing characterized as a “political provocation.”

The EU needs no help creating crises.

Putin Behind EU Migrant Crisis – Polish Diplomat (RT)

A senior Polish diplomat has suggested that the recent surge in illegal immigrants arriving on the Italian island of Lampedusa might be a component of a Russian hybrid operation designed to erode the European Union’s support for Ukraine. This concern comes in light of a recent report from the Italian Interior Ministry, which indicates that over 89,000 people have entered Italy illegally this year. Lampedusa, an overcrowded Mediterranean island, remains a prominent destination for these arrivals. “Someone is helping these people walk hundreds if not thousands of kilometers from Nigeria and Central African countries to the Mediterranean Sea,” Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Arkadiusz Mularczyk speculated in an interview with Polish Radio on Tuesday. “Someone who has an interest in it. And Russia undoubtedly has an interest in it,” he added.

He asserted that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s objective is to “destabilize the situation in Western Europe.” Mularczyk suggested that the current state of confusion and unrest brought on by illegal immigration serves as a means to divert attention away from the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. According to him, Putin is believed to be exerting influence “behind the scenes” in smuggling individuals into the EU, often facilitated by criminal groups. “And it was successful because today, the war in Ukraine is fading into the background, and the entire EU is talking about what is happening in Lampedusa,” the diplomat stated. Claims of Russia’s alleged involvement in facilitating illegal immigration into Europe have circulated for years. In November 2021, this issue gained prominence when certain EU member states, including Poland, accused Russia’s ally, Belarus – and, by extension, Russia – of exploiting migrants seeking asylum in the EU for political purposes.

At that time, President Putin addressed this ongoing challenge, stating that the “key link” of migrant smuggling networks was located within the EU. He argued that European officials were attempting to blame Russia for their own policy shortcomings. According to him, the root causes of the influx of migrants are Western military interventions abroad and the attractive welfare benefits EU nations offer asylum seekers. “Deal with your internal problems and don’t lay on other people [your domestic] issues,” the Russian leader suggested. The ruling conservative Polish government has been openly criticizing Brussels and Western European countries, particularly Germany, for their perceived inadequacies in addressing illegal migration issues and for imposing the burden of hosting migrants on other EU member states.

Zakharova: Russia hopes Armenia will realize full danger of adventure started by Westerners.

Erdogan, in his address at the UN General Assembly: “Karabakh is Azerbaijan”.

Kremlin Calls on Armenia and Azerbaijan to Adhere to Trilateral Agreements (Sp.)

Russia calls on Armenia and Azerbaijan to adhere to trilateral agreements on Nagorno-Karabakh, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday after Baku launched a military operation in the breakaway region. “The only substantive basis is the trilateral documents of two and three years ago, which were signed between Russia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan, so we urge everyone to follow the provisions of these documents and, naturally, taking into account those new realities, this means the fact of recognition by the Armenian side of the territory of Azerbaijan as of 1991,” Peskov told reporters. The spokesman added that the opportunity to reach a political and diplomatic solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict still “exists.” “The main thing is to convince both Yerevan and Baku to abandon use of force and sit down at the negotiating table,” Peskov said.

Earlier in September, Putin said that he received a letter from Pashinyan, and that Russia has no problems with Armenia.Russian President Vladimir Putin and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan did not have any contacts after Pashinyan’s letter, Peskov stated.”Indeed, there was a detailed letter stating the point of view of the Armenian side to what is happening. At that time, there was actually… work on resuming the delivery of humanitarian aid to Karabakh. And to our satisfaction, as of yesterday, this work was successful. The first batch went in two directions through the Aghdam and Lachin roads, but unfortunately this did not prevent the resumption of hostilities. There have been no other contacts since then,” the spokesman said in response to a question about whether there were any other contacts between Putin and Pashinyan besides the letter sent earlier by the Armenian politician.

The Russian military is in contact with the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides, and contacts at the highest level are also possible, Peskov stressed. “First of all, contacts are now being carried out through our military, through other departments. Communication at a higher level is also consistent. As soon as final agreements are reached, we will inform you immediately, including about possible contacts at the highest level,” the spokesman told reporters, commenting on whether contacts with Baku and Yerevan are planned in the coming hours. The Russian military is trying to return the process in Nagorno-Karabakh to a political and diplomatic track, Peskov emphasized.

“..a much healthier security paradigm has emerged in recent years from Eurasia..”

The West Destroyed Africa, Eurasia Will Revive It (Ehret)

In Africa, injustice looms large, marked by poverty, warfare, and famine. Despite post-WWII political gains, economic independence, a vital component of true freedom as envisioned by Pan African leaders like Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, and Haile Selassie, remains elusive. After decades of restrictive IMF and World Bank loans, poverty, hunger, and conflict persist throughout the continent. While many attribute this to Africa’s governance challenges, in reality, a deliberate imperial agenda has hindered the continent’s development in all political, economic, and security sectors. But much has changed in the past few years. The growing clout of Eurasian institutions that fully embrace Global South countries as valuable, integral, and equal members – the BRICS+ and Greater Eurasian Partnership are examples – offer hope that old neo-colonial shackles will be broken and that Africa can enjoy an unfettered renaissance.

The rise of a new global pole to challenge the old unipolar order has had a notable impact across sub-Saharan West Africa which, in recent years, has seen a surge in military coups shifting power away from regimes that had long prioritized the interests of western corporations. These coups occurred in Chad (April 2021), Mali (May 2021), Guinea (September 2021), Sudan (October 2021), Burkina Faso (January 2022), Niger (July 2023), and Gabon (August 2023) – all resource-rich countries with abnormally poor living conditions. In Gabon, over 30 percent of its people live on less than $1 per day, while 60 percent of its regions have no healthcare or clean drinking water despite the abundance of gold, diamonds, manganese, uranium, iron ore, natural gas, and oil – mostly monopolized by French corporations like Eramat, Total and Ariva.

Despite its abundance of rare earths, copper, uranium, and Gold, 70 percent of Malians still live in abject poverty. SImilarly, Sudan, with its riches in oil, fertile soil, and water, has 77 percent of the population living below the poverty line. In uranium-rich Niger, which provides over 35 percent of the fuel for France’s nuclear industry (accounting for 70 percent of France’s energy basket), mainly under the control of France’s Orano, only 3 percent of Nigerians have access to electricity. In the “former” French colony of Chad, that number is only a little higher at 9 percent, and a still-unacceptable 20 percent in Burkina Faso. While Altanticists desperately seek ways to keep their talons embedded into the African continent and its abundant riches, a much healthier security paradigm has emerged in recent years from Eurasia.

“..to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election.”

California Lawmakers Push for Ruling on Booting Trump From State Primary Ballot (Sp.)

The movement to block former President Donald Trump’s 2024 election bid gained steam on Monday as California Democrats urged his removal from the state’s primary ballot. Nine lawmakers penned a letter to the state’s Democratic Attorney General Rob Bonta advocating for Trump’s disqualification from the March 5 primary, arguing his ineligibility on grounds of inciting an uprising during the riots at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The effort is one of several state-level initiatives arguing against Trump’s candidacy on constitutional grounds, citing the Fourteenth Amendment’s barring of candidates “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States from holding office. The California effort is notable in its attempt to resolve the question via the state’s attorney general, an approach which may lead to a faster resolution of the question.

“We all watched in horror Mr. Trump’s insurrection against the United States when he ordered a mob of his supporters to the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 to intimidate [then] Vice President [Mike] Pence and the United States Congress,” reads the letter, spearheaded by Silicon Valley assemblymember Evan Low. “There is no denying that Donald Trump has engaged in behavior that is unacceptable and unbecoming of any leader,” stated a spokesperson for Bonta, appearing to sympathize with some of the lawmakers’ claims. sHowever, whether Bonta intends to fully weigh in on the matter in his position as the state’s attorney general remains an open question. Various other state-level officials throughout the country have determined the matter would clearly violate precedent, if not their own jurisdiction. Others claim the issue would ultimately need to be resolved by the Supreme Court regardless.

“We have a constitutional republic of laws,” argued Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling after a similar petition was lodged in Minnesota. “Anybody using an electoral scheme or a constitutional interpretation to remove anybody from the ballot is going to be a dangerous precedent.” Trump weighed in on the issue in a post on Truth Social, writing, “Almost all legal scholars have voiced opinions that the 14th Amendment has no legal basis or standing relative to the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election.” “Like Election Interference, it is just another ‘trick’ being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election.”

Mr. Biden here is Hunter.

House Republicans Set Date for 1st Biden Impeachment Hearing (ET)

The U.S. House of Representatives will hold its first impeachment inquiry hearing this month, the House Oversight Committee confirmed on Sept. 19. The first hearing will take place on Sept. 28, a spokesperson for the House Oversight Committee told The Epoch Times. “The hearing will focus on constitutional and legal questions surrounding the president’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” the spokesperson said. “The Committee also intends to subpoena Hunter and James Biden’s personal and business bank records as early as this week. The Oversight Committee will continue to follow the evidence and money trail to provide the transparency and accountability that Americans demand from their government.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently announced that the lower chamber would be investigating President Joe Biden, with a focus on his involvement in the business dealings of his son Hunter Biden and brother James Biden. “House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct. Taken together, these allegations paint a picture of a culture of corruption,” Mr. McCarthy said. He said that the inquiry would help lawmakers obtain more evidence, including bank records. Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is helping lead the probe. Ian Sams, a White House spokesman, said that Republicans have already been investigating the president and have “turned up no evidence of wrongdoing.”

President Biden recently told reporters, “The best I can tell, they want to impeach me because they want to shut down the government.” Mr. Comer and other Republicans have found that the president spoke repeatedly to business partners of Mr. Biden, including at dinners at Washington’s Cafe Milano. They also confirmed that President Biden sent emails under pseudonyms while vice president, including accounts that corresponded with Mr. Biden. Mr. Biden, other Biden family members, and associates received more than $21 million, primarily from foreigners, while President Biden was vice president. Mr. Biden was charged with tax violations, but those charges were withdrawn after a plea deal fell apart. He was also charged with several felony gun crimes this month.

McCarthy Delays Vote on 30-Day Funding Resolution as Gov’t Shutdown Nears (Sp.)

US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has postponed a vote on a stopgap spending bill amid his attempts to appease a small but powerful right-wing faction of the Republican Party as a government shutdown looms. The procedural vote originally scheduled for Tuesday afternoon would have approved a 30-day government funding bill, moving it to the Senate and opening the door for wider talks. Some sort of funding bill must be passed by September 26 to avert a shutdown on September 30, but in lieu of agreement on larger appropriations bills, lawmakers have focused on passing a short-term funding bill to give them more time to negotiate. Reports in US media did not indicate when the vote would be held.

But even that has so far evaded federal lawmakers as a small faction of one dozen Republican Representatives aligned with former US President Donald Trump have used the GOP’s extremely narrow majority to position themselves as legislative kingmakers in the lower chamber since the new Congress was sworn in in January. Without their approval, McCarthy’s leadership over Republicans and the House of Representatives as a whole is effectively impossible. The most recent legislation, proposed by Republicans over the weekend, would fund the government until October 31 and includes a 1% cut in current spending levels across the entire federal government for that time, with some departments suffering worse than others. However, the dissident Republicans want to press for even deeper cuts, and are demanding more precise numbers on top-line budget items.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen took aim at McCarthy on Monday, telling US media the speaker “needs to find a way to do his job.” “There’s absolutely no reason why we should have a government shutdown,” she said. “Democrats in both the House and the Senate and Republicans in the Senate are ready to pass appropriations bills or a continuing resolution to keep the government open and operating for the American people.” “Speaker McCarthy needs to find a way to do his job, which is to pass a continuing resolution,” Yellen added.

From Canada, land of vaccines. The mandates will just continue everywhere.

COVID-19 Vaccines Revealed as ‘Neither Safe, Nor Effective’: Watchdog (ET)

COVID-19 vaccines were authorized in Canada during 2020 and 2021 without being subjected to the country’s safety tests as required under established drug regulations, an accountability watchdog revealed. An investigation into COVID-19 vaccines found that they were “neither safe nor effective,” according to the nonprofit organization National Citizens Inquiry (NCI). The organization published a report on Sept. 14 detailing the flawed mechanism through which the vaccines were granted “approval” in Canada. “It is important to understand that the COVID-19 vaccines were never approved under the traditional approval process for drugs in Canada,” the report states. Instead, Health Canada, the federal agency responsible for national health policy, approved the vaccines through an alternative authorization process—an interim order.

“Under the alternative authorization process, the necessity to establish the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines through an objective manner appears to have been set aside,” the report states. Canada’s Food and Drug Regulations require that a drug can only be approved in the country after its safety and effectiveness are demonstrated to the minister of health. Then, the minister considers whether the benefits outweigh the risks, following which, approval is granted. Instead of following regulations, the minister of health sanctioned an interim order on Sept. 16, 2021, which exempted all COVID-19 vaccines from normal review and approval. This provision usually allows the minister to override normal regulations in situations of “significant risk” to health, safety, or the environment.

Desmet

In Canada, four COVID-19 vaccines were authorized by the health agency under an interim order—Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Janssen, and AstraZeneca. The report notes that under the order, vaccines were authorized under a “subjective test.” In this situation, authorization is granted by simply proving that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks. “This cannot be an appropriate standard for approving a drug that the Government intends to administer to the entire population. It is difficult to conceive of a less-scientific test for drug authorization than that found in the Interim Order,” the report states. Moreover, the order made sure that the vaccine authorizations couldn’t be revoked even under evidence that they were unsafe and ineffective.

Once an interim order is issued, the typical Food and Drug Regulations don’t apply. The order thus exempted manufacturers from having to effectively demonstrate “objective evidence of safety and effectiveness” of their COVID-19 vaccines. “The result was that while chief medical officers across the country repeatedly assured Canadians that the COVID-19 vaccines were ‘safe and effective’—the general Canadian population had no understanding that their authorization process had not required objective proof of safety nor efficacy,” the report states. The NCI report was supported by cardiologist Dr. Peter A. McCullough. “Excellent work @Inquiry_Canada with exhaustive testimony and evidence review.

Conclusion: all COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for human use and must be removed from the Canadian market immediately to protect the public,” he wrote in a Sept. 16 post on X. Dr. McCullough recently asked European lawmakers to take COVID-19 vaccines off the market due to concerns about illnesses such as heart inflammation, blood clots, and neurological diseases. s“COVID-19 vaccines and all of their progeny and future boosters are not safe for human use. I implore you, as a governing body, European Medicines Agency, to apply all pressure and due urgency to remove the COVID-19 vaccines from market,” Dr. McCullough said in Sept. 13 testimony to the European Parliament.

    Oregon has no native turkey populations, but the state introduced two varieties, one in 1961, and the other in 1975. The latter introduction in ’75 of the Rio Grande subspecies has been very successful, especially here in SW Oregon.

    Like many of my fellow humans here in Roseburg and Douglas County, Oregon, these critters are a part of daily life. And it’s not the greatest picture quality or composition, but here is a view out the living room window of a couple of these beauties perching on the birdbath for a drink.

    Have a beautiful day!

    Full-spectrum panopticon on Russell Brand. Wonder what took so long. Did one of his protectors kick the bucket? So…everything is shot and halted…for an accusation? An accusation, really? And one that’s 30 years old, right? Okay we’re about to measure how much buy-in we have for the bulls—t “Me Too” stuff. I’d say it’s never mattered before, every one of them has been made up and wrong, but that’s not entirely true. Although never admitting – ever – and never changing their minds – ever – they also get bored and wander away.

    Anyway, so…no one notices the amazing and unprecedented “coincidence” that everyone, from all sides, types, jobs, and approaches, all are perfectly coordinated one Tuesday in September? But there’s no one out there doing all this. Actions are always perfectly coordinated when there’s no “one” doing them. That’s how military campaigns are run, totally on accident, and even with perfect planning and control hardly ever occur this tightly. That is not suspicious at all.

    “—it’s time to try something that has a chance to succeed.

    …Like surrendering.

    “But roll the clock forward, and “take two” of the Zelensky “show” now comes against a much-changed backdrop:

    Certainly does strike you as the “barbarians” visiting the Roman Senate, doesn’t it? If they win, they are heroes and real Romans. If they lose, they are nothing and we throw their country to the winds.

    The other add is, we all told them at the time. Full volume. Nothing could possibly have been more obvious. For example: Russia is 10x their size and can nuke them at will if they wish to. Yet somehow commenters here were still enthusiastic and disparaged Russia’s ability. Even if Russia WAS as bad as the American, NeoCons, Media (but I repeat myself) said, even if it WAS 1979, as these dreadful, doddering dinosaurs believe, Russia STILL could have destroyed them, although it would have been a lot uglier. They cast off the Wehrmacht with sticks and stones, for God’s sake, in winter. They CAN, if they feel like it. Just like We CAN, or General Grant CAN, or General MacArthur COULD, if they get serious and pay the cost.

    So this all could have been avoided because it was so immeasurably obvious. I just don’t know what goes through people’s heads except prejudice and emotion. Look: even if you HATE Russia and the Wehrmacht, you have to have a stone-cold understanding of their abilities. In a war, the other side has the ability to hurt you badly. Are you doing it anyway? And if so, what PRINCIPLES do you have that will keep you going and you can tell the people about it?

    We’ve miraculously not been nuked into 40 dead zones here although we expressly started it, said we started it, paid for it to be started, and killed 50,000 Russians by starting it. Why SHOULDN’T Russia kill 50,000 Yanks? 10,000 Brits? But all we have are a bunch of fires and train derailments, so count yourself lucky. Your house is still standing, which is a miracle and mercy you don’t deserve.

    ““..the EU has implemented 11 sets of sanctions against Russia..” And not learned a single thing.

    Well, they are Minions, after all. If they could learn anything, they’d be fired. Apparently Schultz tried to learn something, so Davos put him in the “Black Eye Club” then threw him down the stairs. “Do What You’re Told! Are you hard of hearing? Do I stutter?”

    A pic of them all would take a thick book. Always, 100% of the time, the Left eye, which suggests the puncher is 100% of the time right-handed. Which seems improbable. So it’s a signal and message.

    “Russia, North Korea Stage ‘Strategic Coup’ against Western Hegemony (Pepe Escobar)

    Remember we had rumors and signals, arrangements that they were going to merge North and South Korea, the only way for trains to run from Seoul to Portugal. That’s constantly halted as no one wants to alter the status quo, ever. They are attempting to halt time, forever. Good luck. But note like Cuba and Iran, the POINT of someone like Kissinger to ring-fence them is to lock up all their resources on ice for theft use later. As his boss, the Rockefellers said, “Competition is a Sin”, the one thing you DEFINITELY do is to run a cartel control on prices. Otherwise everyone undercuts everyone in “Capitalism” — brrrrr – and prices fall. Then nobody makes any money, only a minor % if at all. You HAVE to cartel or why bother? So they flip all oil-nations to ISIS governments that want the tech and ability of the Middle Ages, the age of Mohammad. Lock up the others with sanctions, cut supply by 2/3rds, and wait. Otherwise oil would be $12/bbl and we’d all be rich. …The People, I mean. Living easy, successful lives. The problem would be when you’ve cut supply to raise prices and a nation escapes like – picking one out of a hat, totally randomly – Russia. Then YOU have made THEM rich and powerful with your own Petard.

    Anyway, just reminding there were plans some years ago now to open NoKo, open their resources, and create an Asian boom unprecedented since Japan in 1949, complete with all the lithium you could dream of. However, that has not happened, and why? …It was also the reason K-Pop was suddenly appeared like Venus, fully-formed and nationwide. We never cared about Korea once in 70 years, and now? We still don’t care or can hear anything about Canada and Mexico, ever, weather, media blackout 100% of all days. But Korea?? Uh-huh. It’s been kept slightly warm, so it’s still in the offing. If NoKo goes BRICS and South Korea isn’t going to be thrown into a war by us, we’ll have to 5 Minutes of Hate them again. Watch.

    Makes me sick. And also, how do people not see this stuff?

    “Maybe Trump and his MAGA friends can bow down, but I won’t.”

    Yup. In #OppositeLand, the President that put the most sanctions on Russia ever is a Russian bot and Putin puppet. That’s just common sense. Ask any Democrat (and I do). The President that took $1M from Moscow and gave $400k speeches for years to Russia are “Tough on da Russkies”. Just ask. It all makes perfect sense, promise.

    Adding, the President that armed and trained Ukraine (but wanted accounting) supports Russia and hates Ukraine…Yup! Yuppers, Yup yup! Absolutely, all logical, no problem here! Muh Trump. All logic is suspended. Reality ceases to exist. Forever, if necessary, because HATE JUST FEELS SO GOOD.

    “Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Arkadiusz Mularczyk speculated in an interview with Polish Radio on Tuesday. “Someone who has an interest in it.”

    So he’s a conspiracy theorist. And way behind the times since we already know most of those NGOs are DIRECTLY, and OPENLY funded by Soros. We know for a fact, a factalie, fact-fact, published for decades, fact, open books, in-their-own-press-release, fact? …I Guess Soros is a Putin puppet now, like everyone else? MY FEELZ. My Feelz, the HATE FEELZ SO GOOD! “Let the Hate Flow, Luke.”

    These people. Are insane.

    ““We all watched in horror Mr. Trump’s insurrection against the United States when he ordered a mob of his supporters to the United States Capitol on January 6”

    And he did NOT order oh, say, the U.S. MILITARY to intimidate Mike Pence and Congress instead? And counted on D.C. policemen hitting the button on the 5,000-pound Columbus doors and to escort an entirely unarmed populace to the rotunda? Huh. Strange plan. Must be we’re redefining “Coup”. “My FEEEEEEELZ.”

    “House Republicans Set Date for 1st Biden Impeachment Hearing (ET)

    A hearing of a hearing, after which we will hold a committee meeting to hear the hearing. But only until Nov 30, 2024.

    “Some sort of funding bill must be passed by September 26 to avert a shutdown on September 30,”

    Dates and dates. Hearing September 23rd, here is the 26th, the 30th, and Russia’s Oct 4. The Black Swans are all lined up and hovering. Any motion in any of them (say, bank run, Russian offensive) will make all the others collapse to earth.

    China collapsing. Meh. Everybody’s collapsing and I have no idea how you’d get reasonable info out of there. China is also fighting their own internal Derp State just like we are. As ZZ Top said, “they’re going worldwide.” They seem very under control to me, but I think yes, it’s more innate social cohesion for the moment, and not the government control? Like America in 1900 when we were at the same level and type? That means no “collapse” as we know it — note America had a few “collapses” then too but nothing happened, no trajectory changed.

    “India holding Justin Trudeau on the tarmac for 36 hours for drugs found by sniffer dogs, which would not typically be anywhere near a state aircraft carrying diplomats.”

    For obvious reasons they never allow drug dogs near any government car, plane, or facility. How pleasant to realize! Well, if I ever want to do drugs, I’ll know where to go: the State Police barracks and lockup. (Not kidding, I’ve heard them talking openly about it.)

    That goes with the other police around here, getting in sex scandals and sex shakedowns before being so high they run into the public with their cars, run away, and expect the police will cover it up for a fellow officer….which they do, in public. It sounds like I’m mouthing off when I pick on government, but not so much. I just know so many stories of what I DO know – when I try not to – I can only imagine what I DON’T know. Which would have to be non-stop corruption every minute of every day. Heck, when we see the same corruption and careless, power-mad behavior in corporations, where they effective have no power-over, can you only imagine the actions of the same sort of people who DO? It’s all one population, folks. Ain’t nobody going to church.

    Speaking of, I was thinking of the gender in school problem, and whether my district supports it. Then if they did, are they just an anomaly, or representative? And since they’ll lie anyway if you ask them, and shred records as you see in Baltimpre and nationwide, what good would it do to ask? That’s not an answer. And so on, so it’s a difficult question to answer when we’ve long established our district are pathological liars, and districts around approve and support teachers sleeping with children, as seen by how they get married the day after their age of majority, and “knowbody knewd nothin’”. From the reaction I presume they sent a wedding gift to them on the District Petty Cash Fund and parent tax dollars. Applause all around.

    Anyway, I found an easier way to think of it. I was talking to medical professionals here, and they had the exact and perfect cohesion with the popular understanding that you can ONLY have one direction: you can only BECOME gay. At any time of course, from birth to death. However, you can never NOT become gay: that would be silly, bigoted, and unscientific. All events in nature naturally are one-directional, as we know there are cows with one leg longer than the other and can only turn to the left. That’s Science! Anyway, they had a similar view of Trans, one-directional, that is, “Whatever TikTok tells me.” I didn’t ask if this was in the Desk Manual, I had pushed pretty far as it was. What you see is “Science” and “Medicine”, aren’t. They are humans equally subject to the dominant paradigm as sold by Bernays’ Media, even and obviously if it’s AGAINST everything ever written and still written now in those manuals. Like that you neither lock down the healthy nor vaccinate during a pandemic, both never altered in the textbooks, yet supported by 99% of all Doctors.

    How does this work for schools? Well schools do and MUST obey only the medical authorities of their home state. That’s it. So if the medical board of the state and most doctors feel this is true, then the school must ALSO support one-way gay-trans amputations and sterilizations, effective as a point of State Law. How could they otherwise? Is the Superintendent supposed to tell a licensed medical doctor and therapist “No, I think we won’t allow that medical conclusion or treatment here, Actually I’m the real doctor on school grounds.” Um…no. So that was my gut feeling about why and how – even against all parents, even when denied, even when etc… But I’m glad Arizona or your part of it isn’t like that.

    That would follow for parents as well. One-way, as defined and declared by the State itself, and it’s licensed, legal proxies. ONLY sterilization, the creation of Alien Ant Farm Drone-worker bees. Inhuman to the first and last, their religion.

    If one small Russian drone workshop can produce that many a month, imagine the overall production base that Russia and China can bring to bare in drone numbers.

    These drones are approaching the unit cost of hand grenades and RGPs

    But they fly very fast for miles, have eyes and soon ears to listen, and for accuracy they can fly through a speeding open car window.

    Commissioners Report


    Ottawa: On Thursday, September 14, 2023 the National Citizens Inquiry (NCI) released the first recommendations following its investigation into Canada’s response to COVID-19.

    This Interim Report by the Commissioners is urgent due to the announcement on September 12, 2023 that Health Canada has authorized the use of an updated Moderna vaccine for COVID-19 for all Canadians over the age of six months.

    The recommendations were discussed by the NCI’s four independent Commissioners during a virtual media conference. Available for download below are the Interim Report (English and French) and an open letter to Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, P.C., M.P., Prime Minister of Canada.

    Please also find as references the NCI witness testimony of expert witnesses Shawn Buckley and Deanna McLeod, below the press conference video, citing source evidence that contributed to the findings and recommendations established in the Interim Report.

    Some quotes

    Contrary to what the great majority of Canadians were told, the regulator has not made a determination that the products are safe. The absence of a safety and effectiveness determination is plain on the face of the statutory instruments of approval, and not subject to reasonable dispute. Worse, Health Canada’s website continues to make the positive misrepresentation to Canadians that the products are “proven safe and effective and of high quality,” although Health Canada made no such determination of proof.
    This issue is analyzed by the Commissioners in the section of their report appended hereto.

    Any urgency to bring novel and little-tested Covid-19 Vaccines to Canadians long ago abated, as the virus became milder and population immunity increased. This is recognized in the current regulation authorizing the Covid-19 Vaccines, which dropped reference to urgency in its text. In the face of your government’s reported intention to promote booster injections in coming months, the urgency now lies in telling the truth to Canadians and taking corrective action

    TWEET BY ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR. ON NCI TESTIMONY HAS GONE VIRAL

    Nationwide: The testimony of former CBC/CTV correspondent Rodney Palmer to the National Citizens Inquiry has gone viral on Twitter thanks to a tweet by U.S. Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

    In his testimony, Palmer exposed how the CBC has transformed from newsgathering to propaganda.

    Shortly after 9:00 o’clock Wednesday morning, Kennedy tweeted:

    “Everyone needs to watch this devastating dissection by one of Canada’s leading journalists of how global media icons were transformed into slavish government propagandists during Covid crisis. This testimony should be mandatory in every journalism school.”
    Kennedy provided a link to a video prepared by Odessa Orlewicz who hosts “Liberty Talk Canada” on the Librti.com website.

    In a follow-up tweet, Kennedy asserted that “The process of government-media propaganda coordination is not limited to Canada, nor to Covid issues.”

    In less than 24 hours Kennedy’s tweet had more than 1.6 million impressions, 26,500 likes and more than 10,400 re-tweets.

    During his testimony Palmer said he was testifying about the CBC but added that it applies to most news media in Canada.

    Palmer testified a second time at the NCI, shedding light on the CBC’s use of “chosen experts” who receive government grants, leading to potential biases in reporting.

    When former CBC journalist Trish Wood heard Palmer’s testimony, she tweeted:

    “As a former CBC journalist, watching Rodney Palmer’s evidence about the corp’s fall into absolute corruption was heartbreaking. I knew every word was true but he was so eloquent – I was broken-hearted about my old profession, yet again. Bravo to the #NCI @Inquiry_Canada.”

    The Inquiry also heard other media related testimony:

    Marianne Klowak, a former CBC reporter with more than 30 years experience, testified about the deterioration of journalistic standards within CBC following the announcement of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Former actor/comedian Cathy Jones, who starred on the CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” candidly shared her experiences in the work environment and her decision to retire early from CBC. Cathy also expressed her views on media censorship and the lack of investigative journalism over the past three years.
    Former CBC employee Jean-Philippe Chabot shared his personal journey of losing his job due to his decision not to disclose his vaccine status.

    Anita Krishna, a former Control Room Director at Global News, described the events that led to her job termination.

    NCI is a Canada-wide citizen-led and citizen-funded initiative to investigate governments’ COVID-19 policies in a fair and impartial manner that is completely independent from government. Through questioning led by lawyers, individual Canadians and experts present evidence to Independent Commissioners.

    Larry says the Pentagon is hiding incompetence, most likely because the pilot of the crashed F-35 was a woketard of some sort, a women or a trans pilot and they don’t want that revealed. Even the second pilot could have been a Woketard

    We are facing a medical crisis I haven’t seen anyone out there talking about yet. The SANITY of the INDIVIDUALS in the medical profession – apart from any sociopolitical trends, authoritarianism, what have you.

    Who are our medical professionals?

    1. Truly good doctors and nurses. They lost their jobs and licenses. Men and women of honor. But they are purposely “marginalised”

    2. Truly good doctors and nurses in particular states that protected actual doctoring

    3. Psychologically normal doctors and nurses that faked their notavax status but to all outward appearances complied. Doctors and nurses that fully went along. These people each had a personal hand in killing hundreds or thousands of people.

    I do not think such choices are without psychological costs or consequences. They will be behaving in strange ways. Projection, demoralization. They will say and do irrational things in the course of their jobs. Malicious even, knowing/not knowing what they are doing. Unless they have a Paul on the way to Damascus type moment and are openly forthrightly truthful – and become option #1 above…

    But I am saying there are DISTINCT consequences for the people in their care, that they are – that they MUST -be jacked up by their own choices and the circumstances surrounding them. The cost will be unmeasured and difficult to quantify, but all of society will continually feel it while these people constitute our medical establishment – we’re looking at many decades here. And they are going to be the ones educating the new people.

    4. Sociopaths and Psychopaths – no concern. Should give the same level of service they gave before, no guarantee that that is a good thing

    5. Cluster-B, Narcissistic Personality Disorder types – you might think they are in the same group as 4. I don’t think so. They “care” after a fashion, it’s just that they relentlessly, mercilessly, compulsively apply their defense mechanisms as opposed to caring and responding the way we would.

    Narcs’ defense mechanisms – typically QUITE malignant – are strongly triggered by guilt and shame. While they will not “have a heart” ever in response to shame or guilt, they WILL mercilessly apply their defense mechanisms on other people. This is very bad news. Because we won’t ever be out of the massive shame the medical community should continually feel, ever-renewing in our lifetimes. Because the victims will keep showing new injuries and/or dropping.

    Crime and Punishment. Raskolnikov TRYING to prove to himself he can be an uber-man, beyond morality and just driving himself insane. No escape.

    There will be consequences. There ARE already consequences. Excepting people in states that didn’t coerce them into discovering if they are moral people, except for the Doctors who proved to themselves and everyone they have hearts and spines… ALL THE REST OF THEM are either fucked up now or they are sociopaths.

    You want to get medical care from some projecting, demoralized, defense mechanism addicted basket case? What will happen to you if you do it anyway?

    ….like in the Call Center, I’d watch basically ok people get mentally crushed by the environment they were working in, the always somewhat fucked up policies and processes, narc supervisors, stupid middle management, occasional mean customers and what have you.

    They would get demoralized and then I’d watch people who, 6 months ago, were basically decent people being malicious to customers who were doing them no wrong, not mean customers, just whoever happened across them. Passive aggressively “forgetting” things, “assuming” something leading to a wrong conclusion, “accidentally” doing stuff. Or actually being petty and mean. Or dropping the ball in ways that screwed over their fellow employees.

    It is probably the same in a badly run nursing home. Normal person enters, basically ok person. 6 months later, they’re demoralized by what is happening around them, what they’ve had to COOPERATE WITH and now THEY steal and commit abuses of commission or omission on the people in their care.

    There’s no particular truth-telling event. Nobody absolves them of guilt. Nobody punishes them. They’re just people who are PERSONALLY responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths continuing to get up and go to work each day. And this is apart from any “collective” guilt the profession may also hold, depending on if they see things collectively.

    ​ CVC Capital Partners is a private equity investment advisory firm in Luxembourg holding over $155 billion in assets. CVC was a spinoff of Citicorp in 1990 and is considered the largest private equity firm in Europe. In 2019, CVC Capital bought a majority stake in Teneo. Teneo is a ‘global advisory firm’ with extensive ties to the Clinton family. Tony Blair and Bill Clinton were both on the advisory board of Teneo. Huma Abedin, was a paid consultant at Teneo during her tenure as assistant to Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State. Other advisors include Paul Ryan, George Mitchell and Chris Dodd.
    ​ Chris Dodd went on to become President of the Motion Picture Association – a 501©(3) that determines content for every major media outlet including Disney, Universal, Sony, Paramount, Warner Bros, and Netflix. Past Presidents have all come from US government positions
    ​ In 2022, Teneo acquired a majority interest in Westexec. Westexec was founded by Anthony Blinken and Michele Flournoy in 2017. Their list of 40 advisors include: FORMER, National Security Advisors, US – UN Officials, US Ambassadors, CIA Directors, Special ops, Federal Reserve Directors, NASA, Department of Defense, a slew of generals from all military branches, etc… all having served during the Obama Administration.
    ​ Teneo is a Partner at the World Economic Forum.
    ​ What these Westexec advisors do is run the wars and staff the presidential offices to support their wars. They write the major media scripts that are distributed daily – and they write Biden’s teleprompts. Given the executive picks of Biden’s cabinet are fundamentally weak and ineffective, they were likely chosen for their malleability and basic uselessness so as to effectuate Westexec advisors.​..

    ​ M. K. BHADRAKUMAR​ , ‘Biden’s phase’ of Ukraine war is beginning
    ​ The ground war in Ukraine has run its course, a new phase is beginning. Even diehard supporters of Ukraine in the western media and think tanks are admitting that a military victory over Russia is impossible and a vacation of the territory under Russian control is way beyond Kiev’s capability.
    ​ Hence the ingenuity of the Biden Administration to explore Plan B counselling Kiev to be realistic about loss of territory and pragmatically seek dialogue with Moscow. This was the bitter message that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken transmitted to Kiev recently in person…
    ..Suffice to say, Zelensky’s visit to the White House in the coming days becomes a defining moment. The Biden Administration is in a sombre mood that the proxy war is hindering a full-throttle Indo-Pacific strategy against China. Yet, during an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Blinken explicitly stated for the first time that the US would not oppose Ukraine using US-supplied longer-range missiles to attack deep inside Russian territory, a move that Moscow has previously called a “red line,” which would make Washington a direct party to the conflict.
    ​ The well-known American military historian, strategic thinker and combat veteran Colonel (Retd.) Douglas MacGregor (who served as advisor to the Pentagon during the Trump administration), is prescient when he says that a new “Biden’s phase of the war” is about to begin. That is to say, having run out of ground forces, the locus will now shift to long-range strike weapons like the Storm Shadow, Taurus, ATACMS long-range missiles, etc.
    ​ The US is considering sending ATACMS long-range missiles that Ukraine has been asking for a long time with the capability to strike deep inside Russian territory. The most provocative part is that NATO reconnaissance platforms, both manned and unmanned, will be used in such operations, making the US a virtual co-belligerent.​..
    ..Russia is not going to accept such a brazen escalation, especially as these advanced weapon systems used to attack Russia are actually manned by NATO personnel — contractors, trained ex-military hands or even serving officers. President Putin told the media on Friday that “we have detected foreign mercenaries and instructors both on the battlefield and in the units where training is carried out. I think yesterday or the day before yesterday someone was captured again.”
    ​ The US calculus is that at some point, Russia will be compelled to negotiate and a frozen conflict will ensue where the NATO allies would retain the option to continue with Ukraine’s military build-up and the process leading to its membership of the Atlantic alliance, and allow the Biden Administration to focus on the Indo-Pacific.
    ​ However, Russia will not settle for a “frozen conflict” that falls far short of the objectives of demilitarisation and denazification of Ukraine that are the key objectives of its special military operation.​..
    ​..Already, it is possible to see the potential resumption of military-technical cooperation between Russia and the DPRK (potentially including ICBM technology) as a natural consequence of the aggressive US policy towards Russia and its support for Ukraine — as much as of the current international situation. The point is, today it is with DPRK; tomorrow it could be with Iran, Cuba or Venezuela — what Col. MacGregor calls “horizontal escalation” by Moscow. The situation in Ukraine has become interconnected with the problems of the Korean Peninsula and Taiwan.
    ​ Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu said on state television on Wednesday that Russia has “no other options” but to achieve a victory in its special military operation and will continue to make progress with their key mission of mowing down the enemy’s equipment and personnel. This suggests that the attritional war will be further intensified while the overall strategy may shift to achieving total military victory.

    ​John Helmer , THE US STRATEGY AGAINST RUSSIA IS REPEATING NAPOLEON’S CONTINENTAL SYSTEM – REPEATING NAPOLEON’S DEFEAT
    ​ In the very long history of men and women who snatch defeat from the jaws of victory; miss the forest for the trees; and turn a molehill of profit into a mountain of loss, the US, British and German attempt to stop the tankers which carry Russian oil and gas to market is an exceptional failure.
    ​ It’s exceptional in the same way, and for the same reason of strategic miscalculation that Napoleon’s “Continental System” failed to destroy British trade with Europe – but destroyed the French economy instead. That was 217 years ago – France has never recovered from the damage the over-confident, miscalculating Napoleon did to the French position in Europe’s seaborne trade.
    ​ Napoleon multiplied the catastrophic cost of his misjudgement by deciding that, in order to stop the smuggling and bypass trade, and enforce his blockade, he should invade Spain, Portugal and Russia, and close their ports. Russia then buried Napoleon twice — once in Moscow in 1812, then in Paris in 1814, before he and the French army were finished off by others at Waterloo.
    ​ This time round, the NATO blockade of the Russian maritime trade is Napoleonic in the obviousness of the miscalculation; it is also Napoleonic in the refusal to acknowledge defeat.

    ​ Revenues are up, earnings and profits are multiplying; Sovcomflot has never had so much cash in the bank; its debt is down to the lowest level in more than twenty years – and none of it is in American or European bank hands.​.. A company insider comments: “The gearing is extremely low – the bank debt plus $350 million in Chinese bonds (2.5 billion yuan) are practically nothing. Earnings are high even with the reduced [fleet] tonnage. Overall, if these figures are reliable and there is no concealment of Russian bank facilities, SCF is in perfect shape.”

    ​ Will Zoll presents Part V of “1871”, the modern history of money, particularly imperial money. This is a very clear explanation of how central banks came to own everybody.
    ​ In Part 1 we presented the rich history of the City of London.
    ​ In Part 2 we presented the monetary history of America. We looked at how the colonies were forced to use fiat currency; how the birth of the Republic started with a central bank and huge public debts; how Andrew Jackson defeated the globalist central bankers, and how the Civil War forced America back onto fiat currency, which led to eye-watering public debt. We also showed how those Civil War bonds were snapped up by rich Prussians, including Otto von Bismarck and Gerson von Bleichroder.
    ​ Part 3 showed how globalist investors, with the help of Bismarck’s massive spy network, managed to subvert the United States Constitution’s 14th Amendment, and avoid a potential collapse in Civil War bond prices. The 1871 Treaty of Washington became one of the foundations for international law, laying the groundwork for the establishment of the League of Nations, and later the United Nations. Organizations such as the WHO use the UN’s system of treaties and international law to essentially override national sovereignty and implement its globalist policies. The UN and the WEF have now openly declared their partnership, signalling the co-ordination between unelected UN officials and the army of multinational corporations, which we refer to as the ReichsWEF.
    ​ Part 4 followed the money from the Civil War bonds after 1871. America’s debts were financed in the City of London, and globalist investors locked in enormous profits. European investors, mainly in Britain and Germany, used international corporate structures to control the resources and supply chains of America. This marked the birth of the infamous American monopolies, as well as the beginning of multinational corporations. In particular, the German-banking sector in New York had become so powerful, that they successfully implemented the US Federal Reserve; a private central bank modelled from the German Reichsbank.
    ​ The architect of the Federal Reserve was Paul Warburg. While he was busy implementing a central bank, his brother Max was advising the Kaiser on military preparations for a war that had not yet begun. Unsurprisingly, America’s entry into WWI allowed the Federal Reserve to rapidly expand its balance sheet, and flood the nation with its new currency, known as Federal Reserve Notes.
    ​ In this final part to the 1871 series, we will bring the monetary fiasco into the modern era, and show how the United States and its mighty dollar have become hostage to the globalist elite. We will show how We The People have been forced to defend the value of a fiat system that serves the globalist beast and its desire for a New World Order.​..
    ​..When the US entered WWI, the emergency allowed the federal government to be the borrower that the Federal Reserve needed to expand the supply of credit, and thereby begin to take control over the American economy.​..
    ​..When depositors began to withdraw their money from banks in the form of gold coin, the real depression began. Since the nation was on a gold standard, any gold withdrawn from a bank would result in banks being forced to reduce their loan exposures. The result was that the foreclosure rates on businesses, farms and mortgages skyrocketed. The Federal Reserve’s gold deposits also contracted, forcing the amount of credit in circulation to contract even further. It was a mess.
    ​ The night before the 1932 election, FDR addressed the rumors about gold confiscation. He vehemently denied the rumors, and the following day he won the election in a landslide. Between December 1932, until FDR took office in 1933, gold was being withdrawn at a ferocious rate from the banking system. The entire monetary system of the United States was about to collapse. The day FDR took office, the rumors of his true intentions became reality.​..
    ​..The gold in the Treasury’s vault was part of the federal government, which was of the people, by the people and for the people. That gold was now locked up by the Treasury, and nobody was allowed to use or own it. This gold was the collateral for a new monetary standard controlled by the Fed. This was how a bankrupt nation was re-organized to do trade with the rest of the world; as a hostage to a private central bank. It was a financial structure like none other in world history.
    ​ This was not a currency for American citizens, but instead a currency for the globalist money-lenders and merchants predominantly residing in the City of London. It was a special purpose vehicle (SPV), that could potentially be used to control the world’s money and trade.​..
    ​..Nixon was forced to take the USD off the gold standard in order to save what was left in the Treasury’s vault. All of this was due to the enormous amount of Eurodollars floating around the world, completely dismantling the ability for the USD to maintain a gold standard. This was all thanks to the actions of the Federal Reserve.
    ​ It took the “France First” patriots such as de Gaulle, Pompidou and the French Navy to wake up the world.​..
    ​..Nixon, Kissinger, and the Treasury decided that the value of the USD would now come from a new “petrodollar standard”.​..
    ​..At the time, the deal Nixon made with the Saudis was significant. From 1974, the world believed that the petrodollar standard was a feasible alternative to a gold standard. As always, the devil was in the detail. This new monetary system needed a few extra components to keep it going; debt, dollars, and war.​..
    ​..For the petrodollar complex to be maintained, the American taxpayer must shoulder a burden of perpetual and ever-expanding debt obligations. Since 1971, federal debt levels have never retreated​…
    ​..The Federal Reserve does not want credit to contract, ever. To achieve this in the current monetary system, American taxpayers must continue to service more and more debt.​.
    ​..For every $1 of GDP created, worldwide, the City of London generates up to $15 of foreign exchange transactions to facilitate international trade. This is not a free service. The City of London provides their services for a fee; a fee that everyone in the world pays.​..
    ​..If the world wants to do trade, the City of London will get paid.​ It is the Fifth Column.​..
    “Hidden dollars” is another term for dollars that sit offshore, free from US tax and regulation. From the humble beginnings of Siegmund Warburg’s first Eurodollar bond offering, it has now morphed into a $65 trillion beast.​..
    ​..Understanding this history begs the question: Are we witnessing the beginning of the biggest credit contraction in world history?​ …
    ​..By now, everyone knows about BRICS. It is also referred to as “de-dollarization”. If India can now buy its oil from Saudi Arabia without USD, what is the value of the USD in the transaction? ZERO! If there are zero dollars in the transaction, what fees can the City of London collect?​ …
    ​..Stage 2 of the petrodollar complex requires that the dollar holdings of oil-producing nations purchase US Government bonds. One of the largest producers of oil today is Russia. Considering the happenings in Ukraine, will they purchase US Government bonds from Joe Biden’s Treasury? Furthermore, the Saudis now see their bond investments as a particularly large risk, especially with all this talk of “default”.​..
    ​..The American taxpayer is currently financing $33 trillion of public debt. Joe Biden’s “inflation reduction” strategy requires the nation to shoulder even more debt, possibly an extra $5 trillion this year alone. In order to raise this money, Joe Biden’s Treasury will need to sell more bonds into a market that everyone else, particularly the Saudis, are also sellers. This will mean dropping bond prices, which means interest rates must rise.​..

    The rising costs of everyday life are not only affecting the average American, but their pet, too.

    Costs associated with being an animal owner are so high, that a shocking number of people admitted to surrendering their dog in the last year, according to a new nationwide survey.

    The online survey was conducted by Veterinarians.org, and included responses from 1,000 American dog owners.

    Results of the survey painted a bleak picture for animal owners, with 1 in 6 respondents admitting they surrendered a dog within the last 12 months.

    About one-third of those respondents blamed the decision, in part, on the rising costs of animal care, including food and veterinary visits.

    The first article on the site was posted Nov 5, 2021 and titled Summary

    This is the start of that article:

    An invisible hand sits behind humanity, exerting control over the human will. This hidden virus scours the earth, looking for hosts who will adopt its ideology, and wage war against dissenters.

    You cannot leave a captivity that you cannot see.

    Prussian ideology is this captivity. The awakening is seeing this invisible enemy, knowing its patterns, recognizing how we engage with it and understanding its ultimate end-game. Revealing the hidden enemy, is how humanity defeats the hidden enemy.

    Understanding the ancient Prussian playbook shines unwanted light upon this tyrannical insurgent. This is the road to true freedom.

    This is #PrussiaGate.

    The #PrussiaGate papers are revealing when and how the most formidable army on earth [appeared] to fade away, but really just became invisible. This was the key to their transition from localized wars to complete world domination. To do this successfully, they would need to control intelligence agencies and media, but they also selected to use central banks, debt and large corporations to control the people. In this way, the US was essentially the “head of the snake”, although the influence was world-wide.

    In terms of really understanding this ‘invisible hand’, the 2016 US election would prove to be a turning point for the entire world. Humanity received a four-year lesson in how the media deceive and how intelligence agencies were infiltrated.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump was a remarkable period in history. He was publicly hated by the progressive left, the RINOs, the main stream media, Al Waleed bin Talal, Antifa, George Soros, BLM, John Brennan, Hillary Clinton, Obama and the host of globalist pundits who expressed their disdain for the outcome of the 2016 election. Trump, also the man who at the same time became revered for leading the way against all those who hated him and everything he stood for – those deplorables who voted him into the Presidency. This following would grow to 100s millions, possibly billions, who supported everything he said and tried to accomplish. They are collectively known as the Patriots.

    Trump came across as a quirky character, sometimes saying things that appeared so incorrect that it provided weeks of bad comic material for the fake news. But, for those who have operated in the shadows, Trump was not rambling incoherent lies at all. They were being dragged into the light. Trump was deadly serious and did everything he could to describe and define the enemy that was in our midst. That “Horrible Invisible Enemy” was Prussia and it attacked the world “like never before”; “worse than Pearl Harbor; worse than 9-11”.

    A citizen heard the F-35 Lardbucket crash, but then decided it was no big deal and didn’t report it.

    However he did a fucking awesome re-creation sound effect of what the $250 million dollar boondoggle sounded like when it hit the earth and exploded.

    Far Out Dude!

    “Horrible Invisible Enemy”

    I remember “patriots” 25+ years ago compiling info about the “Invisible” web of wealth & power that controlled/directed the UniParty Global Empire back to the Robber Barons in cahoots with Euro banksters…

    The List was as mind-numbing as it was in-depth & extensive 😐

    The patriot men’s prayer group (multi-faith) that I was part of made an exhaustive effort to collect & collate as much as we could, in the end we gave up due to the nauseating exhaustion involved…

    We spoke *publicly* to our community, in churches & radio (even video), just glossing over the bullet points (documentation was available, but generally ignored), in the end we abandoned that effort, too 😐

    Even in 1992-1996 we informed tens of thousands of “Christian Patriots”, with almost -0- serious *community* response…

    Fast forward to 2023, it’s at least a 1000 times more complex & insidious, but the *solution* is the same.

    Yet, in real reality no one gives a $hit 🙄
