“I am a reporter. It is my job to see this. You are a child. You should never see this.”

Letter to the Children of Gaza (Chris Hedges)

Dear child. It is past midnight. I am flying at hundreds of miles an hour in the darkness, thousands of feet over the Atlantic Ocean. I am traveling to Egypt. I will go to the border of Gaza at Rafah. I go because of you. You have never been in a plane. You have never left Gaza. You know only the densely packed streets and alleys. The concrete hovels. You know only the security barriers and fences patrolled by soldiers that surround Gaza. Planes, for you, are terrifying. Fighter jets. Attack helicopters. Drones. They circle above you. They drop missiles and bombs. Deafening explosions. The ground shakes. Buildings fall. The dead. The screams. The muffled calls for help from beneath the rubble. It does not stop. Night and day. Trapped under the piles of smashed concrete. Your playmates. Your schoolmates. Your neighbors. Gone in seconds. You see the chalky faces and limp bodies when they are dug out. I am a reporter. It is my job to see this. You are a child. You should never see this.

The stench of death. Rotting corpses under broken concrete. You hold your breath. You cover your mouth with cloth. You walk faster. Your neighborhood has become a graveyard. All that was familiar is gone. You stare in amazement. You wonder where you are. You are afraid. Explosion after explosion. You cry. You cling to your mother or father. You cover your ears. You see the white light of the missile and wait for the blast. Why do they kill children? What did you do? Why can’t anyone protect you? Will you be wounded? Will you lose a leg or an arm? Will you go blind or be in a wheelchair? Why were you born? Was it for something good? Or was it for this? Will you grow up? Will you be happy? What will it be like without your friends? Who will die next? Your mother? Your father? Your brothers and sisters? Someone you know will be injured. Soon. Someone you know will die. Soon.

At night you lie in the dark on the cold cement floor. The phones are cut. The internet is off. You do not know what is happening. There are flashes of light. There are waves of blast concussions. There are screams. It does not stop. When your father or mother hunts for food or water you wait. That terrible feeling in your stomach. Will they come back? Will you see them again? Will your tiny home be next? Will the bombs find you? Are these your last moments on Earth? You drink salty, dirty water. It makes you very sick. Your stomach hurts. You are hungry. The bakeries are destroyed. There is no bread. You eat one meal a day. Pasta. A cucumber. Soon this will seem like a feast.

You have seen foreign reporters. We wear flak jackets with the word PRESS written on it. We have helmets. We have cameras. We drive jeeps. We appear after a bombing or a shooting. We sit over coffee for a long time and talk to the adults. Then we disappear. We do not usually interview children. But I have done interviews when groups of you crowded around us. Laughing. Pointing. Asking us to take your picture. I have been bombed by jets in Gaza. I have been bombed in other wars, wars that happened before you were born. I too was very, very scared. I still have dreams about it. When I see the pictures of Gaza these wars return to me with the force of thunder and lightning. I think of you. All of us who have been to war hate war most of all because of what it does to children.

“..Biden, Blinken and the rest of the regime’s national security crew are now aware that Biden’s open-door, open-wallet support for Bibi’s frenzied violence against Palestinians has turned into a political disaster from which it will be difficult to recover.”

Biden’s Frankenstein (Patrick Lawrence)

The new wave of violence in Israel and Gaza now enters its second month. More than 10,000 people have been killed, The Associated Press reports, 40 percent of them children. Where is this catastrophe going? What are the limits of Israel’s inhumanity? Does the Biden regime, in its unforgivable support and encouragement of this ethnic-cleansing operation, have another Frankenstein on its hands—a monster it cannot control? There is the Ukraine case, a contrast as we consider this question. Volodymyr Zelensky is pure cartoon creation—the greatest put-up job of our century, posing as a defender of democratic freedom while running a crypto–Nazi regime and, along with his generals and ministers, stealing hundreds of millions of dollars. But Ukraine—weak, broke, and losing the proxy war against Russia—is easily managed. Biden could unplug the electrodes from Zelensky’s temples any time he chose to do so. He won’t, but he could.

It starts to look as if Biden and his foreign policy people have lost what control they may have had over Bibi Netanyahu and the fanatical regime he directs. Last week Antony Blinken, on his second trip to Israel since the Hamas assault on southern Israel October 7, asked the Israeli prime minister to “pause”—we must not propose a ceasefire—Israel’s daily bombing campaign up and down the Gaza Strip. Netanyahu refused the American secretary of state more or less point blank. Ask yourself: Who was in charge of that meeting, who was running the show? I have to say, Blinken does come over as a diplomatic pipsqueak time and time again, as he did last summer in Beijing, when the Chinese leadership actually scolded him before sending him home with nothing but lectures to show for his effort.

The Biden White House has been making sotto voce requests such as Blinken’s for the past couple of weeks, all to very little avail. Dim and wanting in all subtlety, even Biden, Blinken and the rest of the regime’s national security crew are now aware that Biden’s open-door, open-wallet support for Bibi’s frenzied violence against Palestinians has turned into a political disaster from which it will be difficult to recover. West Asian nations may not stand with Palestinians to the extent one would like to see, but the old client relationships with Washington appear to have been altered more or less permanently. It all looks so very bad. Last week the Latin Americans began recalling their ambassadors to Tel Aviv, Bolivia going so far as to sever relations, and bravo for the Bolivians.

This week Jordan, Bahrain, Turkey, Chad and South Africa followed suit. The Israelis show no sign of giving a damn, but look at the names: America has traditionally counted these nations among its friends (or clients). Now they stand among those treating apartheid Israel as the pariah state it deserves to be called. Think about where this will leave Washington out in the middle distance. It will be another case of U.S. support for South Africa before the apartheid regime gave up the ghost in 1990, or for Rhodesia before it became Zimbabwe 10 years earlier. It will be embarrassing and costly. There are cracks in the façade at home, too. There are murmurs in Congress that the Israelis have gone too far, although very few have made the daring leap from ineffectually suggesting a “temporary pause” in the bombing to demanding a ceasefire.

Unnamed officials now acknowledge that Israel’s hysterical violence has nothing to do with self-defense and everything to do with preserving the Israeli Defense Force’s reputation for merciless retribution. I read these sorts of admissions as indications of dissatisfaction and disapproval, if not disgust. The Pentagon appears to be especially restive as the Israeli campaign to ethnic-cleanse Gaza proceeds. Two weeks ago it dispatched senior officers to advise the IDF to reconsider the deadliness of urban combat—the street-to-street, door-to-door stuff. The New York Times has since quoted a senior Defense Department official saying “the operations so far have not come close to destroying Hamas’s senior and middle leadership ranks.”

Ehud Barak (ex-Israel PM) has resurfaced. He collected his frequent flyer points on the Lolita Express.

“..If the US administration wanted the ceasefire, it would have been reached by now..”

Ceasefire in Gaza Depends on US as It ‘Fully Controls’ Conflict – Hamas (Sp.)

A ceasefire in Gaza depends on the United States as it “fully controls” the Middle East conflict, Hamas Political Bureau member Mousa Abu Marzouq said on Thursday. “The ceasefire depends on the US. The US is the main supporter of Israel: American drones are in the skies over Gaza, military ships are off the Palestinian coast. They supply both arms and money. They also provide political cover for the process. All the states in the region are under pressure to save Israel. That is why the ceasefire depends on the US. If the US administration wanted the ceasefire, it would have been reached by now,” Marzouq said in an interview with Turkish newspaper.

The official added that Hamas expected Islamic countries to take practical measures in the crisis, up to and including cutting off oil supplies to Israel. At the same time, the US is threatening regional countries so they do not impose sanctions on Israel, Marzouq said. “We are well aware of the fact that in the past, during the wars in the Middle East, an oil embargo was imposed to support the Arab actions. Today, it is possible to cut off oil supplies to those who help this Zionist structure. The Arab and Muslim states can take more steps towards a ceasefire. The Islamic states should not stop with statements and condemnations. Practical steps must be taken,” he added.

“..20-30 trucks pass through Turkiye [to Gaza] every day, as of now. Of course, this is not humanitarian aid. It was proposed to increase this figure to at least 500 trucks.”

Hamas Not Interested in Keeping Civilians Hostage – Erdogan (Sp.)

The Hamas movement is not interested in keeping civilian hostages, and a mutual process on freeing Israelis and Palestinians is necessary, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday. “On the issue of hostages, Hamas is not interested in holding civilians hostage. On the contrary, there must be a release of Palestinians held by Israel. If we, as Turkiye, intervene, then Israel must immediately release the Palestinians, and on the other hand, the Israelis held by Hamas must be released immediately,” Erdogan told reporters on his way back from Tashkent. Hamas does not have a “determination” to not release hostages, and the movement said that they are ready to free them, Erdogan added. “Of course there are [also] soldiers there [in Hamas’ captivity]. Among these soldiers there are also high ranks. But the lack of principles of Israel, which takes … children hostage, is also obvious. If positive steps are taken, we will take any risk and try to contribute to resolving this issue,” Erdogan said.

Turkiye has proposed to the United States to increase passage of trucks with humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip to 500 per day during talks with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday. Earlier this week, Blinken visited Turkiye where he held talks with Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan. “Recently, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Turkiye and held discussions with Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan. During the negotiations, surely, the foreign minister made some proposals. For example, 20-30 trucks pass through Turkiye [to Gaza] every day, as of now. Of course, this is not humanitarian aid. It was proposed to increase this figure to at least 500 trucks. I was told by Hakan Fidan … that he [Blinken] also reacted positively to this,” Erdogan told media. Turkiye aims to open a corridor for the transfer of injured people out of the Gaza Strip and receives positive signals on this issue, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan added.

“Our desire here is not only a corridor for humanitarian aid to pass through. We also want to increase pressure on Israel to ensure the transfer of wounded, oppressed Palestinians. Our goal is to ensure the passage of all these people from Gaza to areas where we can provide medical assistance … We have completed preparations for this, some positive signals are coming … If we can really take them to our hospitals, we will fulfill our humanitarian and Islamic duty,” Erdogan told reporters. Turkiye has received some positive signals regarding its diplomatic efforts for the Gaza Strip, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday. “There is no such thing as hopelessness. Of course, we have hope [for a ceasefire in Gaza]. We hold these events because we have hope … We seem to be getting some positive signals in our diplomatic attacks,” Erdogan told reporters on his way back from Tashkent.

“..The Muslim world needs to take a united stance and increase pressure on Israel..”

Turkey Ready To Act As Guarantor In Resolving Gaza Crisis – Erdogan (TASS)

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed that Ankara is ready to act as a guarantor in resolving the Gaza crisis. At a meeting with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on the sidelines of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) summit in the Uzbek capital of Tashkent, Erdogan called on the Muslim world to come together and put pressure on Israel, the Turkish presidential office said in a statement. “President Erdogan pointed out that Turkey was ready to contribute to resolving the issue, taking responsibility as a guarantor. The Muslim world needs to take a united stance and increase pressure on Israel,” the statement reads.

The Turkish and Iranian presidents discussed the humanitarian crisis caused by Israel’s operation in the Gaza Strip and the steps that should be taken to resolve it, as well as bilateral and regional issues. “President Erdogan said at the meeting that an end to Israel’s violence would facilitate efforts to ensure peace in the region and the world in general. According to him, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) needs to make efforts at its extraordinary summit to find a fair solution,” the statement added. The OIC is expected to hold a summit in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on November 12.

“..Ukraine’s hopes of defeating Russia had been “absurd” right from the outset..”

Russia Can’t Be Defeated On Battlefield – Kremlin (RT)

There is no way the Russian military can be defeated, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has insisted. His comments follow recent claims by President Vladimir Putin that Western governments were lowering their expectations regarding the outcome of the Ukraine conflict. Speaking to Russian journalist Pavel Zarubin on Thursday, Peskov stated “it is high time that everyone in Kiev and Washington realized: it’s impossible to defeat Russia on the battlefield.” Putin claimed on Friday that Western powers were “changing their tune now [and] saying different things” compared to their previous insistence on inflicting a military defeat on Russia.

Also last week, Ukraine’s top military commander, General Valery Zaluzhny, admitted in an article published by The Economist that Kiev’s troops were unlikely to pull off a “deep and beautiful breakthrough” in the conflict with Russia, unless provided with more advanced weapons by the West. He suggested that the fighting was deadlocked and could “drag on for years,” although Peskov responded to that assessment by insisting that Moscow’s forces were not at a stalemate. He further claimed that Ukraine’s hopes of defeating Russia had been “absurd” right from the outset. Citing anonymous US officials, NBC reported last week that behind closed doors Washington had been pushing Kiev toward negotiations with Moscow. The outlet also claimed that the US had been conducting “delicate” unofficial discussions with Kiev regarding concessions Ukraine would be willing to make in potential peace talks.

A State Department spokesperson denied the claims, while Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky repeated that his government would not negotiate unless Russia withdraws its troops from territory within Ukraine’s 1991 borders. According to NBC, Western officials are increasingly concerned that Ukraine is “running out of forces,” and also harbor fears about their own ability to shore up Kiev with weapons shipments in the long run amid the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Media speculation has recently intensified after Ukraine failed to make any notable gains despite a months-long counteroffensive. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Kiev has lost more than 90,000 troops in the operation, which began in early June.

“..It’s not just calling each other names and maybe hurting someone’s feelings. This is becoming a blood match.”

West Preparing for Military Coup Against Zelensky – Larry Johnson (Sp.)

The writing is on the wall for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as the Western elite seemingly seek someone else to fill his shoes, retired CIA intelligence officer and State Department official Larry Johnson told Sputnik’s New Rules podcast. Signs of a behind-the-scenes struggle in Ukraine have recently manifested themselves in Commander-in-Chief Gen. Valery Zaluzhny’s open defiance of Volodymyr Zelensky’s non-stop war plans; a mysterious death of Zaluzhny’s close aide; and the Ukrainian president’s refusal to hold elections next year. CIA veteran Larry Johnson believes that the “invisible hand” of the West is orchestrating what may end up in regime change in Ukraine. Per him, Zaluzhny’s extensive “stalemate” interview to the British press, which prompted so much ire on Bankovaya Street – a Ukrainian presidential residence – was by no means coincidental.

“It’s always important to pay close attention to what’s going on in the media because these stories don’t just appear out of nowhere,” Johnson told Sputnik. “It’s not like some intrepid Economist’s reporter is saying, ‘Hey, you know, I think it’d be a pretty nifty if I could go interview General Zaluzhny.’ Because I think that that entire arrangement was made possible through the intervention of MI6 to get Zaluzhny’s profile raised in the West. And remember in that Economist magazine, he was interviewed, he then wrote an op-ed and they gave him a longer piece online, the ‘Economist online’. So Zaluzhny got three hits. And he was seen as undermining the message that had been coming out of Ukraine.”

Likewise, the death of Gennady Chastyakov, an assistant to the commander-in-chief, reeks of a potential sabotage from the Ukrainian infamous security service, according to the former CIA analyst. “This grenade that went off… I’ve seen in a couple of different accounts that someone gave him a live grenade and then his son was playing with it and accidentally pulled the pin and it went off. But it sure seems like sabotage. And Zelensky still has support within the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and it would not be at all beyond the SBU for Zelensky to think it’s a good idea to send a message like this to try to intimidate Zaluzhny.” However, it’s not Zaluzhny who is Zelensky’s major problem, but the Ukrainian president’s fading support in the West, both in the UK and the US, according to Johnson:

“Remember a week ago, Time magazine – who had featured Zelensky on its front cover in 2022 as Man of the Year, they described him as like ‘the reincarnation of Winston Churchill’, and ‘this great military strategist’. He now was put on the front cover of Time and decried as basically like Adolf Hitler in his last days, delusional, out of touch with reality, crazy. So when I see those kinds of articles appear from both British sources and American sources, it’s telling me that the political establishments in both places are preparing the exit ramp for Zelensky. And Zaluzhny may be seen as someone that they want to replace Zelensky with. So we’re at the stage now in this entire affair where the infighting is now becoming lethal. It’s not just calling each other names and maybe hurting someone’s feelings. This is becoming a blood match.”

Johnson drew attention to the fact that in addition, NBC News broke on November 4 that US and European officials have begun “quietly talking” to the Kiev regime about possible “peace negotiations with Russia” to end the stalemate. It seems Western decision-makers have zero illusions about Zelensky: they know that he had zero qualifications to take on the presidency, but was “a comedian notorious for his ability to use his genitalia to play the piano,” per the CIA veteran. For his part, Zaluzhny appears to be someone “who could negotiate with Russia, because Zaluzhny back in the day at least had contacts with and trained with members of the Russian military before the split when Ukraine sort of went in its own direction,” Johnson stressed.

“..the use of the Russian language is not something that the European Commission will pay attention to..”

Ukraine ‘Has No Russian Minority’ – Deputy PM (RT)

The European Commission cannot have complaints about discrimination against the ethnic Russian minority in Ukraine because there is no such section of the population, Kiev’s deputy prime minister for European integration, Olga Stefanishina, has claimed. Some EU members have raised concerns over Ukraine’s treatment of ethnic minorities under laws adopted since the 2014 armed coup in Kiev, including the government pushing the use of the Ukrainian language through education and media regulations. However, speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Stefanishina insisted that “there is no Russian minority in Ukraine. It does not exist. There is not a single judicially defined community identifying itself as a Russian minority.”

She added that “when I want to, I speak Ukrainian, and when I want otherwise, I speak Russian.” Stefanishina claimed she did not need permission to do that from the EU or “Moskals” – a pejorative term used by some Ukrainians to describe Russians. The politician further stated that officials in Brussels shared her stance. On Wednesday, the European Commission recommended that talks should begin on Ukraine’s accession to the EU. The commission’s president, Ursula von der Leyen, argued that Kiev had made strides on implementing certain reforms on minority issues. Stefanishina’s remarks apparently confirm reports in the Russian media on Wednesday, which claimed that Brussels had chosen to ignore allegations of anti-Russian discrimination in Ukraine. “Let me be absolutely clear: the use of the Russian language is not something that the European Commission will pay attention to,” an EU source was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

EU recommendations regarding language policy will only apply to Hungarians, Romanians, and Bulgarians, the source claimed, adding that Kiev was moving forward on meeting those demands. In a recent example of a language row, a Russian-speaking driver in Kiev was banned by a rideshare service operator after he rejected demands by two passengers to speak Ukrainian. A video of the incident went viral in late October and drew the attention of language ombudsman Tarask Kremen, who vowed that the defiant driver “will not escape punishment.” In a survey conducted in September by the Kiev International Institute of Sociology at the EU’s request, respondents cited language discrimination as the most common type of prejudice in Ukraine, with 45% saying it was a problem.

Pyatt is the ultimate tool. He was US envoy to Ukraine in 2014, known for phone calls with Victoria Nuland. Now he’s “US assistant secretary of state for energy resources”.

US Aiming To ‘Kill’ Major Russian Energy Project – Pyatt (RT)

The White House is aiming to “kill” Russia’s Arctic LNG 2 energy project, according to US assistant secretary of state for energy resources, Geoffrey Pyatt. The project in the northern Gydan Peninsula is operated by independent Russian LNG producer Novatek. It will feature three LNG trains, with a total annual production capacity of 19.8 million tons. The first train was launched in July, while the remaining two are scheduled for 2024 and 2025. Speaking at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on US national security interests in Ukraine on Wednesday, Pyatt stated: “Last week, for instance, we levelled new sanctions against the Arctic LNG 2, which is Novatek’s flagship project”.

“Our objective is to kill that project,” he stressed, claiming that the project had been set up with the aim of turning Russia into the world’s largest LNG exporter.According to Pyatt, Russia’s plans are being stifled by sanctions imposed through cooperation between the US and its allies in the G7 and beyond. The US official also said the White House is “working with the countries [that] historically have depended on Russian energy, and [are] paying in to the Kremlin’s resources.” Pyatt claimed that this has been done “quite successfully” in the EU. “We need to keep focusing on the Asian front,” he added, stressing that the current price cap coalition would help to achieve that objective.

According to Pyatt, the $60 per-barrel price ceiling on Russian seaborne oil exports imposed by EU and G7 countries in December has managed to cut Moscow’s energy revenues, while keeping Russian crude on global markets and avoiding further destabilization. Earlier this week, Japanese Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said that sanctions on the Arctic LNG 2 project could have a major negative impact on business in Japan, adding that Tokyo would work with the G7 to maintain stable energy supplies. Japan had previously exempted Russian LNG projects in Sakhalin and the Arctic from sanctions and continued to provide architectural and engineering services to the country.

“..we have seen the Americans take a series of irresponsible and escalatory steps with regard to Ukraine, and not only there..”

Russia May Downgrade Diplomatic Relations With US – Deputy FM (TASS)

Washington’s behavior may compel Moscow to downgrade diplomatic relations or even cut ties, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said. “We are indeed going through an acute crisis in relations, the likes of which we have never seen before. We need to carefully calibrate and verify the steps we are taking to prevent further escalation. Our leadership encourages the Foreign Ministry and other federal government agencies to act this way, which is what we are guided by. However, we have seen the Americans take a series of irresponsible and escalatory steps with regard to Ukraine, and not only there,” the senior diplomat said in an interview with RTVI.

“That is why, if we look at Washington’s current behavior model from this perspective, I don’t rule out anything at all. The level [of diplomatic ties] may be lowered; and the severance of diplomatic relations is also possible,” he added. Still, the deputy foreign minister stressed that Russia did not plan to initiate the severance of diplomatic relations with the US. “We believe that diplomatic relations are an element of international affairs that need to be taken care of because otherwise we will lose all that’s left of civilized channels for sending messages to each other,” Ryabkov said. In this regard, he pointed out that November 16 would mark 90 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and the United States.

“Our relations have been through various phases; there was even a period of allied ties and brotherhood in arms in the fight against a common enemy, Hitlerite Germany, that was waging a war against us and our allies, which included the US back then. Later, there were the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis and a period of detente. We’ve seen many things,” the Russian deputy foreign minister noted. The senior diplomat also pointed out that Russia would always respond to any US challenges and provocations. “I think the Americans know us by now, watching how firmly and consistently we defend our interests in all areas,” Ryabkov emphasized.

“Voters, by a 59% to 37% percent margin, said they trusted Trump more than Biden when it comes to the economy – the largest gap of any issue…”

Polls In Key States ‘Scary’ – Top-Ranking Biden Diplomat (RT)

US Ambassador to Canada David Cohen has recently revealed that fresh polling in key swing states paint quite a grim picture for incumbent President Joe Biden, who leads in only one key state out of six for the 2024 presidential election. “For people in Canada or the United States who are concerned or troubled by a prospective second term for Donald Trump, those polling results are sobering and scary,” Cohen told a conference of manufacturers and exporters in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, on Tuesday. He then said that this information just means there’s a lot of work that needs to be done over the next year and that no one should panic. “I am certainly not looking at the current state of play and saying, ‘Oh, my God, it’s all over. There’s no way Joe Biden can get re-elected’,” Cohen added. “Anyone who has that attitude is probably making a big mistake.”

According to Politico, his comments represent “an unusual swerve into domestic US politics by a sitting ambassador and a striking admission of Biden’s vulnerability by one of his most loyal political allies.” The Biden campaign has spent much of the past few days trying not avoid “fretting” – as they said in a statement – about the latest wave of grim polling on the 2024 election, which showed that former President and current candidate Donald Trump is leading Biden significantly in five of the six most important battleground states. A survey by The New York Times and Siena College published on Sunday indicated Trump is holding an 11-point lead in Nevada and smaller margins across Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Only Wisconsin favored Biden – and only by a two-point margin.

The 3,662 polled voters were mostly concerned about the age of Biden – who turns 81 later this month, making him the oldest president in American history – and expressed dissatisfaction over his handling of the economy. Voters, by a 59% to 37% percent margin, said they trusted Trump more than Biden when it comes to the economy – the largest gap of any issue. That result bodes particularly poorly for Biden, given that nearly twice as many voters said economic issues would determine their 2024 vote compared to social issues, such as abortion or gun laws. And those economic voters favored Trump by a landslide 60 percent to 32 percent. The survey also showed that, for the most part, Trump is so far politically surviving the 91 felony charges he is currently facing.

He’s more Hitler than Hitler himself was. And he can live rent-free in her head until the end of time.

Hillary Clinton Likens Trump To Hitler And Warns He Would End Democracy (G.)

Former senator and secretary of state says Nazi leader was initially elected and that ‘Trump is telling us what he intends to do’ Hillary Clinton has compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler as she offered a blunt warning about the dangers of a second Trump presidency. Trump back in the White House, Clinton said during an appearance on ABC’s daytime talkshow The View on Wednesday, “would be the end of our country as we know it, and I don’t say that lightly”. The former first lady, senator and secretary of state said: “When I was secretary of state, I used to talk about ‘one and done’. What I meant by that is that people would get legitimately elected and then they would try to do away with elections, and do away with opposition, and do away with a free press.”

Then Clinton added: “Hitler was duly elected. All of a sudden somebody with those tendencies, dictatorial, authoritarian tendencies, would be like ‘OK we’re gonna shut this down, we’re gonna throw these people in jail.’ And they didn’t usually telegraph that. Trump is telling us what he intends to do.” Clinton’s comments came days after a Washington Post report detailing how Trump is discussing how to use the justice department to investigate political rivals and former allies who have been critical of him should he return to the White House. He is also discussing invoking the Insurrection Act on his first day in office, which would allow him to use the US military domestically to quell protests and dissent, something he was talked out of by military leaders during his one-term presidency.

Trump’s team is also preparing to staff a potential administration with more radical rightwing lawyers who are less likely to stymie efforts to get in his way as he pushes the bounds of presidential power, the New York Times reported. A New York Times/Siena poll released on Sunday shows Trump leading Joe Biden in several key battleground states. Trump faces criminal charges in four different cases, set to go to trial next year. Winning the presidency is widely understood to be Trump’s best chance of escaping liability. And the poll shows that many voters who were asked would switch back to Biden if Trump is convicted. But Clinton gave a clear warning. “Trump is telling us what he intends to do,” Clinton said on The View. “Take him at his word.”

Don’t worry, it’s just the Guardian.

“In New York, a judge can draw an adverse inference from a decision to invoke the fifth amendment in a civil case. “You’ve got contradictory testimony. You can use his assertion of the fifth amendment against him. To basically find that he’s lying..”

Trump Is ‘Toast’ In New York Fraud Trial – Former Watergate Prosecutor (G.)

Donald Trump is “toast” in the civil fraud trial involving his business empire and put himself in an incredibly bad position when he agreed to testify in person after previously invoking his fifth amendment rights against self-incrimination, Nick Akerman, a former Watergate prosecutor, told CNN on Wednesday. “Basically at this point, Donald Trump is toast,” said Akerman, who was an assistant special prosecutor on the 1970s team that investigated President Richard Nixon and top aides for their involvement in the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate hotel and subsequent revelation of other nefarious political activities. “I mean he is basically going to be found to be a liar by the judge.”

Trump testified on Monday as part of an ongoing trial in which the New York attorney general, Letitia James, is suing the former president for fraudulently inflating the value of business assets to secure more favorable terms on loans and insurance contracts. The judge overseeing the case, Arthur Engoron, already ruled Trump and the family company, the Trump Organization, did in fact commit fraud – the trial taking place in Manhattan is to determine what penalty they will pay. James is seeking $250m and to bar the former president from conducting real estate business in the state of New York. Trump sat for a deposition in the case in August 2022 and invoked the fifth amendment more than 400 times. Despite that, he testified in court last week that he did not commit fraud.

Trump used his appearance on the stand to rail against the judge and what he said was unfair treatment in the trial, bringing sharp rebuke from the bench. In New York, a judge can draw an adverse inference from a decision to invoke the fifth amendment in a civil case. “You’ve got contradictory testimony. You can use his assertion of the fifth amendment against him. To basically find that he’s lying,” Akerman said. “I just don’t see how this judge, at the end of the day, is not gonna find with respect to Donald Trump ‘liar, liar, pants on fire’.” Akerman added that in the 40 years he had been practicing civil law, a handful of his clients had taken the fifth amendment, but had “never seen somebody do such a stupid move as to suddenly start testifying after you’ve taken the fifth”.

“ not supporting the political narrative on climate is now almost impossible to get published in the major science journals..”

“..only about 0.5% of the papers explicitly stated that recent warming was mostly human caused..”

Claimed ‘99% Consensus’ on Climate Change Demolished by New Report (DS)

The invented political notion that 99% of climate scientists believe humans have caused all or most recent global warming has been dealt another significant blow. A group of Israeli scientists has examined the widely-publicised claim by the climate activist Mark Lynas that there is a 99% ‘consensus’ that humans cause most warming. Led by Yonatan Dubi, Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Ben Gurion University, the scientists found that massive flaws and biases riddled the Lynas work, implying the conclusions of the study do not follow from the data. This work matters. The claims of a 99% consensus, along with an earlier 97% figure, are widely used in political and media circles to shut down debate over anthropogenic global warming (AGW). Sceptical scientists – even those as distinguished as last year’s Nobel Physics Prize winner Dr. John Clauser – can be dismissed as cranks and deniers.

Of course consensus is not proof, which is notably lacking in the model-driven climate science field. However the Israeli authors observe a consensus claim is “influential in bolstering the reception of a particular thesis within the broader public sphere”. This leads to “less quantifiable statements”, such as humanity is facing an imminent climate crisis, and is followed by global calls for action. Not to put too fine a point on it, the collectivist Net Zero project relies on a fake scientific consensus that crumbles when exposed to the most basic scrutiny. The Lynas et al. paper, which examined the ‘abstracts’ of 3,000 papers, is riddled with errors. It assumes that all papers taking ‘no position’ on AGW are in support of the hypothesis.

The Israeli authors note that sceptical scientists tend not to emphasise scepticism in the opening abstract as work not supporting the political narrative on climate is now almost impossible to get published in the major science journals. Careful analysis of how sceptical papers diplomatically “fit the consensus” suggests the actual number of scientists agreeing with AGW may be on the “low side”, conclude the examining authors. The dictionary definition of consensus is a “general agreement” or “the judgement arrived at by most of those concerned”. The authors are clear in their judgement: “No claim for consensus can be made from the data presented in Lynas et al.” This is not the first time such outlandish ‘consensus’ claims have been critically examined. In 2013, John Cook asserted that 97% of 11,944 peer-reviewed science papers explicitly endorsed the opinion that humans had caused the majority of the warming over the last 150 years.

But, 7,930 of those papers took no position on anthropogenic change and were excluded from the 97% claim. It was subsequently revealed that only about 0.5% of the papers explicitly stated that recent warming was mostly human caused. At the time, a former IPCC author Professor Richard Tol said that Cook’s nonsense paper showed the climate community still had a long way to go in weeding out bad research and bad behaviour. For their part, the Israeli scientists note that their criticisms also apply in general to earlier consensus studies based on abstract scanning, and it is to be regretted that they were “not taken into consideration” by Lynas et al. “It is thus crucially important to understand the limitations of, and the good practices required of, these types of consensus studies”. The matter is said to be too important to be left “blurry and subjective”.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Marjorie Taylor Greene are an odd couple. There’s not much they agree on.

US Congress Members Call for Biden to Drop Assange Extradition Request (Sp.)

Sixteen Democratic and Republican members of US Congress have called for US President Joe Biden to withdraw the extradition request by the United States against Australian journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a document published by Assange’s wife, Stella Assange, showed Thursday. “As Members of Congress deeply committed to the principles of free speech and freedom of the press, we write to strongly encourage your Administration to withdraw the U.S. extradition request currently pending against Australian publisher Julian Assange and halt all prosecutorial proceedings against him as soon as possible,” the document, published by Stella Assange on X (formerly known as Twitter), read.

The Members of Congress, namely James McGovern, Thomas Massie, Rashida Tlaib, Eric Burlison, Ilhan Omar, Paul Gosar, Ayanna Pressley, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Pramila Jayapal, Matthew Rosendale, Greg Casar, Cori Bush, Jamaal Bowman, Jesus Garcia, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as Senator Rand Paul, said in the document that “deep concerns about this case have been repeatedly expressed by international media outlets, human right and press freedom advocates, and Members of Congress, among others.” The Members of Congress said they believe the US Department of Justice “acted correctly in 2013 … when it declined to pursue charges against Mr. Assange for publishing the classified documents because it recognized that the prosecution would set a dangerous precedent.” They added that “it is the duty of journalists to seek out sources, including documentary evidence, in order to report to the public on the activities of government.”

“The United States must not pursue an unnecessary prosecution that risks criminalizing common journalistic practices and thus chilling the work of the press. We urge you to ensure that this case be brought to a close in as timely a manner as possible,” the document read. Since April 2019, Assange has been held in London’s high-security Belmarsh prison while he faces prosecution in the United States under the Espionage Act. If convicted, the WikiLeaks founder could face 175 years in prison. In December 2022, he appealed to the European Court of Human Rights to fight his extradition. WikiLeaks was founded by Assange in 2006 but rose to prominence in 2010 when it began publishing large-scale leaks of classified government information, including from the US.

    “Trump Judge’s Wife Denies Posting Anti-Trump Messages

    What the actual? I can see saying a lot of things: “It’s not Anti”, “I don’t care”, “Go f– yourself”, “I’m the judge’s WIFE, not the judge”, “You were okay with it with USSC Thomas”, lots of things. But not, “No I didn’t.”


    The ease and level to which they gaslight only confirms the ENTIRE POPULATION’S worst fears: You’re such a liar, and have so astonishingly little restraint, that lying is like water, like breathing, like second nature to you. And therefore to the Judge, of whom you are only the non-divorced wife of. So he approves. Both of this and to your approach to life in general.

    Thanks! Never stop talking. Free speech: not just for Republicans.

    “German Gov’t Agrees To Bailout Giant Loss-Making Wind Farm, UK Increases Subsidies

    Capitalism at work! Was never profitable, isn’t profitable now, answer to all things is to take taxpayer money and hand it to major MNCs and my friends. One problem: since there’s no “capitalism”, where do the TAXPAYERS get it, this “money” of which you speak? To have “money” you need there to be “profits”, that is, any net energy increase or improvement over zero. Since there’s no longer any economic activity, there are no longer any “profits”. What money there is has already been stolen.

    “Aussie Telco Blackout Chaos Proves Cash Still Remains King

    Also a “Glitch” at the same time stopping hundreds of thousands of transactions at American banks, which also happens to be the same hours Citizens (a local one) was shut down, chopped up, and taken over. Oh Bitcoin, people say. But Bitcoin would have been immune to this unless every cell, every cable, every outlet was also down. I see pictures of it, so pretty good guess ALL internet wasn’t down there.

    Collateral Damage. Forced Displacement. Collective Punishment.”

    Well at least they’re talking about it. Now book another conference room and talk them to death.

    “Ukraine. Israel. China.”

    Actually we can’t win ANY of those wars. Not singularly and not combined, and certainly not China which has this new magic called “A steel mill.” We should industrial espionage and find out what those are. After we figure out what is a “Shipyard.”

    “..Biden, Blinken and the rest of the regime’s national security crew are now aware that Biden’s open-door, open-wallet support for Bibi’s frenzied violence against Palestinians has turned into a political disaster”

    Polls show plummeting support for Biden over this issue. Of course not the killing of Americans. Americans who? Domestically or in the military, whether rural or ghetto, who cares? Kill all you want. But a “mere” 10,000 foreigners somewhere? Why didn’t you say so? That makes all the difference! Well, whatever it takes, I guess. And they say Americans don’t know or don’t care. No, the only people Americans don’t care about are their own citizens and brothers.

    “He collected his frequent flyer points on the Lolita Express.”

    Speaking of, any theories about RFK? So he pops up, says all the right things, positions himself, then Oops! He’s on the Epstein flight list. He supports Israel ABOVE us, lacking all and every possible nuance. So…I guess as a top-tier Presidential Candidate, to be in the media eye non-stop for two years, he just figured no one would find out? There is nothing plausible here. I can see a certain business Left putting him up as a AntiBiden, figuring like the dismal dinosaurs they are, that it’s 1979 and they can contain it, except he would and could never be that anti-pharma and anti-business in environmental pollution. (Their version of Tulsi) Impossible, non-starter especially as got no support from that wing initially.

    I can see him being floated by the White Hats to split the DNC vote from Biden, leading to the President being decided in the House of R. However, he wasn’t peeling votes from Biden Blue but dangerously too many from the Red as well, so they canned the idea. However, in this way? Going down on the dumbest issues like Epstein and Israel? Why like this? I can’t keep up.

    “Ceasefire in Gaza Depends on US as It ‘Fully Controls’ Conflict – Hamas (Sp.)

    Meh. Like Ukraine the “U.S.” is controlled by OTHERS. So Israel controls the U.S. who controls Israel, who controls the U.S. …That’s just a tautology, right? So how about getting out of cartoon land and saying WHO? Who specifically? The Lettermen at Mossad and specific back-end people not Nutsy himself. And the Lettermen at the CIA are the ones who CREATED Israel as we know it today over 50 years of hard work. (As well as creating Saudi, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, Al qaeda, ISIS, Saddam, the Kurds…) That is to say, they, along with MI6 and Davos, are the SAME PEOPLE, same club, which is neither “Israel” nor the “United States” but hates and destroys them both for its own personal ends: Power. They are Dr. No in the volcano. THEY have the space laser that takes the world hostage.

    If we controlled Ukraine, we wouldn’t have NOT given weapons, then royally screwed up their military. If Ukraine controlled us, we wouldn’t have got bored and wandered off. Same with Israel. It’s a third party, and more complex, that “third party” is itself an amalgam of interests. The only thing we can know is “their” interests do not align with the national interests of any nation nor people, but are against us. Not just “US”, but mankind worldwide. Therefore they think of themselves as not “Americans” not “Israelis” but as a special subgroup, or as Karlin said, a “Club” that has members and non-members, insiders and outsiders. Like a Mafia. If a mafia soldier becomes a NYC policeman, is he a policeman? Not really, he’s merely a Mafia mole, an asset. Why? Evil is as evil does, you know them by their fruits. If in case of events, he has a choice to stay pro-police, support the people of NYC, and chooses instead to support and protect the Mafia Family, we know he’s not on the “side” of police at all, is he? It’s when pressure occurs and when you have to choose that you know.

    “State Department spokesman: “It is incredibly inappropriate to [bring up facts and evidence to us, the government.] Sit down, shut up and Do What You’re Told. What are we paying you for anyway? Why did we pass a law allowing propaganda on the American people, and printed $30 Trillion to buy you if this is what we have to put up with here?

    “• West Preparing for Military Coup Against Zelensky – Larry Johnson (Sp.)

    As the Anglos do to all their allies. Always. Osama. Saddam. Erdogan…

    Note Russia isn’t invincible either. Here Russia is very strong, has 10:1 advantage, all firepower, and just removed the general in charge (it happens) yet still can’t displace a tiny enclave of Ukraine from the East bank of the Dniper. I’m sorry, maybe I’m missing something here: Where are they hiding? In the earth’s core? What can withstand non-stop artillery and Kinzals? I understand a lot of the others as limiting casualties, not wanting to walk into Ukraine’s defense, but Okay man, whatever.

    ““Voters, by a 59% to 37% percent margin, said they trusted Trump more than Biden when it comes to the economy – the largest gap of any issue…”

    Which is why we’re not going to have an election. HAVE we had any elections since Papa Bush illegally installed Baby Bush in 2000?

    “Hillary Clinton Likens Trump to Hitler and Warns He Would End Democracy (G.)

    He’s already been there four years and nothing happened. If anything, he was more Democrat than the Democrats were. Doesn’t anybody notice??? He’s a Pro-gay marriage, pro-gun control pro-Democrat from a liberal Democratic city who has all Bill Clinton’s policies and deported fewer people than Obama. As above, “How dare you use facts and evidence?!?”

    More importantly, according to Hillary, Trump won the election now? When did that change?

    “Trump Is ‘Toast’ in New York Fraud Trial – Former Watergate Prosecutor (G.)

    Maybe. But he thinks the trial is in NY. It isn’t. The trial is in the American People ABOUT NY.

    ““never seen somebody do such a stupid move as to suddenly start testifying after you’ve taken the fifth”.

    This guy also is such a patsy and a rube he believes there is a “Trial” going on. There isn’t. There can never be a trial when we know the outcome before we start. It’s a show, a movie, and like the Impeachment, we openly hire and install TV executives to run it. The only one who doesn’t know this is a movie and fake, is YOU, smarty pants.

    “are widely used in political and media circles to shut down debate.”

    See? The lack of debate, discussion, and data only PROVES how Sciency we are! We know it’s Science when we never, ever look at and certainly never DO replicate experiments.

    Remembered what I was trying to say yesterday, and this is interesting: Jimmy Dore had on common MMA fighters who were erased for having “Anti-Israel” views. …We all know how “anti” it is to tell someone not to commit open genocidal war crimes and/or therefore commit national suicide on TV. What no one could figure out though is, “Why?” We know they’re after the Left for being “Pro-Hamas”… and we all know how “Pro” it is, how blindly nationalistic to want children not to be killed by the ten-thousands in the streets, and therefore be the victims of an open genocide, murdered on TV. I mean, really: have we not taught you with 20 years of Blue Tube, 4 hours a day to sit down, shut up, and be passive?

    But since these few people are outliers, news people who are doing what they always did, common Joes just piping up for news that caught their eye.

    …The difference was, they were giving these views to the WRONG SIDE. That is, as a Red, MMA guy, he was telling the GOP base NOT to be Pro-Israel. NOT to enlist and die for Blue Governments. They want them SILOED. It would be and is okay for HARVARD to say that, because they are part of the Blue Base, that is part of the Blue Silo. It is okay to be Pro-Israel in the Red side, because like Rand Paul that is the RED silo. But not Blue-in-Red, or Red-in-Blue, which is why they’re after people like Joe Rogan an Elon Musk all the time. They need us DIVIDED.
    So the facts were unclear and the data set small, but it seems the new approach is no longer to STOP information, as like Bitcoin, it can’t be stopped. It’s to control and channel information into echo chambers. So they only go after the echo-chamber breakers now.

    Join Big Brother. Or Join Goldberg. They are both run by the same people.

    Asked yesterday, does anyone know what Israel’s goal is here? Yes, and it’s simple. Kill all Palestinians and steal their land. This extends to the furthest borders given by Abraham as their manifest destiny, suddenly discovered in the Torah, and only then can they be “safe.” They’ve been on Autopilot for this for 70 years, and all opposition has already been dealt with years ago, so this is merely the thoughtless reaction, automatic. As automatic, the machine, the people, the State of Israel now has zero adjustment for present strategic realities as always happens. (like us, pretending it’s 1979) But they always wanted, needed Gaza, and always wanted, needed to be all-”Jewish” and erase the Arabs I-don’t-care-where-they-go, so now they are. However, this will backfire in the greatest possible way as all thoughtless, legacy, automatic plans do.

    Because: “You can ignore reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of ignoring reality.” Now why are you making Ayn Rand right?

    Can’t blame the system, because its made up of individuals.
    It’s certainly not the individual, they’re just part of the system.”

    Exactly my point with Obama. Everyone is responsible so no one is. “Tragedy of the Commons”. This is always and only the logical conclusion of Collectivists and Collectivism. On the Opposite isn’t “Right Wing”, it’s Liberty and Individual Responsibility. Individuals are only responsible for what THEY do. And what they DO, not think or say. And yes, they are a product of their environment, but the Individual Liberty position on that is “Too bad. Life’s hard. Suck it up and do right, Buttercup.”

    So essentially, Citizen, the #Opposite of everything you said. Maybe you mistook my saying “This is how you do it” as an affirmation, not pointing out that it’s a slick sales pitch that will work great and make people eat s–t sandwiches, yet the present set doesn’t even have this tiny level of brains and skill. Obama’s not a genius. He’s average. It’s just that all his handlers were so far below average.

    Remember back when, 20, 30, 40 years ago, the TV would put up “ain’t that crazee” trials and shows where they tried to argue “Your Honor, I had a rough childhood” and all the Right (that is, roughly speaking, including Libertarian) would say that is the DUMBEST thing ever, what about the VICTIM? and so on? Their view, our view hasn’t changed a bit since it’s based on principle. You’re an individual, I don’t care what the collective does; your group, whoever they may be. You’re only responsible for YOU, which is the Opposite view of Collectivists. However, if you think you’ll commit the same crimes being born in the Ghetto to the Corleone family as born the daughter of a Cornell Professor in rural NY, then you’re a moron. We know “reality exists”. That gives us empathy that we are not retribution robots. That’s what they do to Hamas: they were “Born bad”, “They’ll just grow up to be terrorists anyway…” However, it’s not only about the hand you were dealt but also what you DID with it. We can only judge the what you did with it part, as no one yet has figured out a way to “Equity” all the deals.

    So…what’s your position? What’s your cure?


    Important Excerpt from the Judgment Note 2013 Judgment
    What Amounts To Genocide?
    Simply put, genocide means any designated acts committed with intent to destroy in whole or in part a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such. The definition of genocide as given in Article 2 of the Tribunal’s Statute is taken verbatim from Articles 2 & 3 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide which states that the following acts may by themselves or cumulatively constitute the international crime of genocide:

    Killing members of the group

    Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

    Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part

    Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group

    Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group


    The State of Israel was charged on 20 November 2013
    with war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

    The Collective West Running for It’s Life Against the Grim Reaper


    The political West has been trying to create a perpetual divide between East Slavs for centuries. Various European invaders were perfectly aware that Russia is too big of a bite at its full might, so splitting it up was always the first goal. This was the case from the times of Ancient Russia and the Medieval Kievan Rus’ to the modern-day USSR and Russian Federation. According to various Russian historians, Otto von Bismarck, the mastermind behind the unification of Germany in 1871 and its first chancellor, stated:

    “Russia’s strength can only be undermined by the secession of Ukraine. It is necessary to not only cut off Ukraine from Russia, but also to push them into confrontation, to turn two parts of one people against each other and then watch how brothers kill each other.”

    Western sources are adamant that Bismarck never said this and that the words were misattributed to him, possibly even misinterpreted and/or taken out of context. However, regardless of whether Bismarck said so or not, the description suits Western (geo)politics toward Russia and Ukraine perfectly. For instance, both the mainstream propaganda machine and various Western institutions are working tirelessly to convince everyone that Russia and Ukraine are supposedly “completely different”.

    Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth,

    Correlation isn’t cause but from 2017:

    Peter Vanham, Media Lead, Public Engagement, Tel.: +1 646 592 5907;

    The world’s six largest pension saving systems – the US, UK, Japan, Netherlands, Canada and Australia – are expected to reach a $224 trillion gap by 2050, a new study by the World Economic Forum shows
    Adding in China and India, which have the world’s largest populations, the combined savings gap for the eight countries reaches a total of $400 trillion by 2050, a sum five times the size of the current global economy
    With the gap driven by longer lifespans and reduced levels of savings, the World Economic Forum recommends five measures to help economies avert a prolonged pensions crisis ht countries
    Download the full report here

    ….and the five recommendations, drum roll please:

    The report suggests five high priority actions that governments and policy-makers should take to adapt pension systems to address the challenges:

    Review normal retirement age to increase in line with life expectancies. For countries where future generations have a life expectancy of over 100 [3], such as the US, UK, Canada and Japan, a real retirement age of at least 70 should become the norm by 2050.

    Make saving easy for everyone. A good example is the recent reforms in the UK where 8% of earnings will be automatically contributed to pension savings accounts for each individual from 2019. This initiative to automate the act of saving so far has boosted savings for 22- to 29-year-olds and low-income workers, and is estimated to create $2.5 billion in additional pension savings each year.

    Support financial literacy efforts – starting in schools and targeting vulnerable groups. Financial literacy education should be offered throughout people’s careers to raise awareness of the importance of saving. A good case study is the media campaign executed in Singapore for the launch of CPF LIFE, the national annuity scheme that focused on translating a simple message easily understood by the average person.

    Provide clear communication on the objective of each pillar of national pension systems and the benefits that will be provided. This would give individuals an understanding of the level of income they can expect from government and mandatory occupational systems and whether they need to accumulate their own individual savings to “top-up” income provided from national systems.

    Aggregate and standardize pension data to give citizens a full picture of their financial position. A good example is Denmark, where an online dashboard collates pension information to provide individuals with a holistic view of their different pension savings accounts.

    They forgot to mention the plandemic, or was that just a managerial oversight?

    kultsommer yesterday

    “Are these the contradictions of Capitalism of which you speak?”

    Opinion of a one man that fits your narrative is a deal breaker?

    How is it that when you asserted people coming from behind the Iron Curtain have problems with “the system” (meaning capitalism) it was a fact but when you hear from someone actually from there saying how evil Communism is, then it’s opinion? How is adopting a double standard and re-frame an argument rather than a public embarrassment?

    I just related to you what happened in many businesses – forcing people to take a useless, harmful shot or hopefully make them homeless. On the basis of collectivist thinking, the framework laid by marxist academics. Against reason and capitalism.

    I’m not unhappy about working a job for an employer doing useful things and earning my pay – I’m made unhappy by these collectivist anti-capitalist thinkers on a crusade to “increase my happiness” while inverting imagined privilege and persecution to “make it fair.” In the process of which they did harm to my employer and my customers as well.

    BTW, have you been in any of “those” countries that you such an expert about?

    I didn’t have to travel an inch to experience it.

    Besides which actual ad hominem rather than fake AFKTT ad hominem where he thinks being made to look like a fool or receiving an insult about it is ad hominem. wtf man. I need to fucking TRAVEL to have an opinion on 150 million dead, millions in misery, fear, many fleeing, millions in concentration camps? I have to TRAVEL to have any thoughts in my head and express them? What is this even? Maybe I can’t afford that luxury like you can. Maybe I make a rule you can’t promote communism if you don’t travel the way I like or do some arbitrary thing I think of?

    I recall that you had a pretty hard time landing the job. Aren’t you supposed to be working? Your non-woke, very hard capitalist boss is watching you.

    Why do you seem to be gloating publicly? You presume added value gainful employment equals misery it seems. A weird re-frame, the image of you cracking a whip while I get down on the floor and scrub? Want to explain yourself? Or just leave it for everyone to understand something about you without you explaining. You embarrass yourself.

    You avoid directly arguing for the thing you’re for and avoid directly arguing against the thing you’re against and instead it’s this. Your need to beat around the bush and use tricks instead of direct argument says something about the tenability of your position.

    Proxies/mercenaries for the USA

    1. Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine, is posing as a defender of democratic and freedom while being the leader of a crypto–Nazi regime as a proxy war against Russia.

    2. Netanyahu Israel’s daily bombing campaign up and down the Gaza Strip.
    Frenzied violence against Palestinians has turned into a political disaster.
    Israel’s hysterical violence has nothing to do with self-defense and everything to do with preserving the Israeli Defense Force’s reputation for merciless retribution.
    Israeli has a campaign to ethnic-cleanse Gaza.
    Meanwhile this is a coverup for the USA wanting to destroy Iran.

    Ehud Barak, former Israeli PM, admitting a few days ago that Iran is now a “nuclear-threshold state”, meaning “it’s beyond our capability by any surgical intervention to block them from turning into nuclear power, it’s up to them to decide when and how they’ll decide to do it […] It’s not up to us.
    “Unexpectedly, he doesn’t believe ,that Iran is an actually a threat to Israel or the U.S.:

    “The same way that North Korea never thought of dropping a nuclear- bomb on South Korea or Japan or America in Guam…, they’re not idiots:
    they don’t want to be thrown back into the stone age.

    it’s about the survival of the dynasty, from their enemy, the USA.
    It’s not about bombing the world…

    They will not dare throw a nuclear- bomb on Israel, or in another neighborhood or on America.”
    Ceasefire in Gaza Depends on US as Washington ‘Fully Controls’ Conflict – Hamas

    “The ceasefire depends on the US. The US is the main supporter of Israel: American drones are in the skies over Gaza, military ships are off the Palestinian coast. They supply both arms and money. They also provide political cover for the process.
    All the states in the region are under pressure, by USA, to save Israel.
    That is why the ceasefire depends on the US. If the US administration wanted the ceasefire, it would have been reached by now,” Marzouq said in an interview with Turkish newspaper.
    “Biden accused the Russian government of genocide in Ukraine, but Israel, which he supports, killed more civilians in one month than Ukraine did in two years.” How do you explain this contradiction?”

    i am to believe that any honorable member of the bar would not immediately resign and refund all fees to a client who would chose self incrimination within a kangaroo court.
    Mr. Trump may very well be an idiot and the man may also be the tool of a political faction. I lack the intellectual gravitas to accept he is a willing martyr.

    Central Bank Digital Currency – Central Banks within the western power structure are the engine whose purpose is to drive growth. Growth of industry, growth of trade, growth of ever expanding debt based capital is the function of the institutions. When i hear or read an opinion that central banks will create a prison planet by limiting growth and access to markets i am highly sceptical. i also know the source is one who lacks the courage to acknowledge there is another foot with another boot. Anyone who believes 15%, perhaps 1%, of earth’s population will control the universe is lacking in depth of perception or has an ulterior motive. Ask yourself this question, “Whose bread is this person attempting to butter”? There are two types of prison. In one setting the constraints are within the walls and in the other the constraints are outside of the walls. The paradox of course is who is the prisoner and who is free.


    Similarity to Covid-control narrative from few years ago is nauseating:


    on second thought:
    anyone who openly brags about murdering our martyred brother Qassem Soleimani is an idiot. You do the math. What are the walls of your prison comprised of?

    Gracefully Aging On a Homestead

    Our readers have worked hard to build their homesteads, so why retire from their properties? Here are ways they’ve managed aging on a homestead.

    From stiff joints and mild inflammation to full-blown debilitation, life can take its toll. In my case, I’m reminded every morning as I hobble out of bed of the brake drum that fell on my ankle, while still attached to the vehicle it belonged to, roughly 40 years ago. In my 60 years, I’ve found some smart — and some less-smart — ways to keep on keeping on, but one thing’s for sure: I look for ways to work smarter so I can still do what needs to be done. Several issues ago, we heard from folks looking for tips on how to stay on the homestead, even with a serious hitch in their get-along, and we’ve compiled many of the fantastic tips you all submitted, right here!

    I didn’t have to travel an inch to experience it.

    Isn’t that so?

    I recall that you had a pretty hard time landing the job. Aren’t you supposed to be working? Your non-woke, very hard capitalist boss is watching you.

    I suspected after the posting that this may be understood the wrong way, and, yes, at the face looks as a cheap shot.
    What I was to merely say is you are not working for some woke-lunatic who is an obstacle to your fulfilled life or, God forbid, a commie – Capitalist is writing your check.
    In my comments I try not to degrade the person and I only debate his or hers writings that caught my attention. I use a humor.

    “….actually from there saying how evil Communism is….”
    I thought that was pretty much established.
    That should concern you no more than being freaked out by the lifestyle of some Amazon tribe. Do you feel like “liberating” North Korea?


    You’re telling your age by saying ….
    1. Honey. Your slip is showing.
    2. this will backfire

    3. … Suck it up …
    I can’t remember last time I heard “a backfire” or “Suck it up ” .


    Mr. House wrote: Question for everyone here: What does Israel intend to gain from the current operation? What is the goal?

    Depends on how one views the events that lead up to it. Back to 1948, or to some years ago? Say, the Hamas operation Oct. 7 was pre-prepared for at least 3 years ..

    Personally, I don’t believe the Hamas attack was the shock everyone is pretending. MSM news even says the Isr. Gvmt was warned by several parties, and excuses made e.g. by Scott Ritter, for not predicting the attack: > too much reliance on AI intelligence, plus, not failure of the Int. services, but of the politicians who aren’t savvy enough, are BS.

    There was an element of -> from ‘let events take their course’, to the extreme of ‘it was a false flag’ …

    Why? To have an excuse to attack Gaza (not Hamas), in an explosive, violent, way.

    Why? Too many answers. Personal: Bibi tries to save his hide, Bibi’s ultra violent Zio cabinet jumps on the oppo (kill Pals, > Greater Israel, see also doings in the W Bank), the Gaza gas fields (potential), which have to be controlled by Isr, general radicalisation, and more.

    Imho under the surface a weakening of US power / grip is relevant.

    Isr. + the US are in a symbiotic relationship, brothers in all things etc. but one party (as is always the case) holds the upper hand, and that is the US. The US funds, directs, and protects (see UN etc.) Isr. which is the ‘beach head’ of the US in the ME (as RFK J. said recently) and serves to keep the region in conflict, not to mention kill Arabs with impunity, following a mini-me rah-rah murderous colonisalist entreprise .. ..

    The US has lost image, power, kudos, and economic supremacy (for various reasons) for some time. Traditional vassals, subservients, break away and ‘do their own thing.’

    E.g. MBS, KSA is no longer a buddy-ally of the US. Isr., in a sense, has ‘gone rogue’ and is fighting for its survival in the only way it knows how to, has been enjoined to, via destroying farms, homes, controlling minuscule territories…

    Isr. (Gvmt. – milit. – top dogs – Zios -) is reacting blindly and doesn’t have a ‘reasonable’ goal. Their actions might even lead to the cancellation, thre break-up, of Isr. as a “Jewish” state.

    The Onion: House Votes To Censure 66% Of Americans For Antisemitic Support Of Ceasefire

    Mister Roboto

    Here’s something I know that people around here will find interesting. Chris Martenson recently did a subscriber-only video on his website where he says he discovered that five out of every six stocks sold in the stock market are not actually owned by the people who believe they have bought them. Final, actual ownership of this vast majority of stocks belongs to one massive holding company who, in the event of a stock market crash, could and probably would make good on their primary claim, leaving the investors who thought they were the ones who owned their particular stocks pretty much holding the bag. This has apparently been the case since 1994 at the latest.

    The director must have ringers placed strategically throughout the audience, and he is benefitted by the fact the classical music enthusiasts tend to be more musically aware (and to have some music training) than the average group of humans. I’ve been in very good choirs that did a little of this (and similar activities) with the choir only (not audience), and similar activities with a very amateur choir…it would work with ringers — but you either have to have a group of people who have been trained to do this or you have to have a few strong singers (ringers) interspersed who have been trained. The ringers end up cuing the voices of those who don’t know what pitch to sing. When I did this in a small amateur choir I became the ringer for my part.
    The onstage choir looks sparse. The director could have trained a good choir in how to do this in about 10-20 minutes before the performance and have half the choristers dispersed throughout the audience as ringers.

    Mr. House

    Thank you Noirette, i concur with the majority of what you wrote. And if i’m right, and we’re defending our currency now, then creating debt is currently the most important thing to policy makers. If you can’t generate enough in your home country, the government needs to step in (what we’ve been doing since 2008) and if the government can’t generate enough under normal circumstances, well then you need to create abnormal circumstances to have them create even more (what 2020 was and everything else that is currently going on).

    Mr. House


    That is interesting, a bail in if you will.

    Mister Roboto

    Yep, the fix has been in for something like thirty years, now…at least!


    Hiding the truth

    Israeli Apache helicopters killed own soldiers, civilians on 7 October: Report
    New footage corroborates previous reports that say the Israeli military is responsible for many of the Israeli casualties during the first day of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood

    News Desk

    The Israeli military has released drone footage showing hundreds of scorched and damaged cars moved from the Nova music festival, providing further evidence that Israeli forces likely killed many of their own during the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on 7 October, RT reported on 6 November.

    The Nova festival took place near Kibbutz Beeri, only five kilometers away from the Gaza separation wall. It was one of the first targets hit by Palestinian resistance fighters when they broke out of Gaza, attacking military bases and settlements from 6:30 am.

    During the attack, the Palestinian fighters managed to take some 240 Israelis captive, including soldiers, settlers, and foreigners.

    The new drone footage shows an aerial view of hundreds of burned and destroyed cars taken from the site of the festival and placed in a dirt parking lot, creating a makeshift junkyard.

    Despite the confusion, twenty-eight Israeli combat helicopters fired all of the ammunition they were holding, including hundreds of 30 mm cannon shells and Hellfire missiles, during the day.
    The Guardian reported that Israel’s influential finance minister and settler leader, Bezalel Smotrich, urged the Israeli army to “hit Hamas brutally and not take the matter of the captives into significant consideration” during a cabinet meeting late on 7 October as the Hamas attack was still underway.

    I can try to write a poem about the changing narratives of CNN and FOX, two American news channels . Here is what I came up with:
    by GEM

    CNN and FOX

    They used to be different, like day and night
    CNN was the voice of reason and right
    FOX was the voice of bias and spite
    They clashed on every issue and fight

    But then something changed, something strange
    CNN started to sound like FOX of old
    They focused on the horrors of war and rage
    They sensationalized and polarized and sold

    FOX started to sound like CNN of past
    They focused on the horrors of peace and calm
    They criticized and scrutinized and cast
    Doubt on everything that did not fit their palm

    They switched their roles, but not their goals
    They still wanted to influence and control
    The minds of the people, who watch them whole
    They still wanted to divide and console

    Their loyal viewers, who trust them blind
    They still wanted to be the first and last
    To report the news, that they define
    They still wanted to be the best and fast

    Why are Ukrainian POWs joining the Russian military?
    Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

    … despite all the mindless propaganda that Russia is supposedly trying to “destroy” Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, the way Moscow has been conducting the special military operation (SMO) tells us a completely different story.
    After all, if anything, the latest Israel-Gaza escalation has shown the world just how devastating wars can be and just how “held back” Russia has been.

    Taking all this into account, many Ukrainians seem to have realized what sort of a tragic mistake has been to buy into the idea that “all Russians are evil” and that fighting against them is the “only way to gain freedom”. Namely, in late October, the first volunteer battalion consisting entirely of former Ukrainian servicemen was formed after the POWs (prisoners of war) decided to fight in the Russian military.
    “Bogdan Khmelnitsky””, is named after one of the most prominent characters in Russian and Ukrainian history.


    Messrs. Roboto and House- Martenson was no doubt referring to the book “The Great Taking” by David Rogers Webb.
    You can skip the preface and read the guts of it quite quickly.
    It’s vaguely horrifying in a SHTF kind of way.

    Now wait a second.
    And I won’t fault the chick for playing that card at the penultimate moment, but women and guys like Milley and Lloyd Austin never think this shit through.
    Cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war my ass.
    Just because a woman is as vicious as hell doesn’t make her fit for duty or qualified.
    Let’s get Major Scott Ritter’s opinion first being the “frontline” Marine he wants everyone to think he was.
    Here’s mine before Ritter is featured again tomorrow.
    These women made it. They wanted it. They asked for it. They sent other mothers, daughters and sisters to the front lines to prop up their careers. Some of following jerks sent folks to combat units as disciplinary measures which is absolutely prohibited because it’s tantamount to attempted murder especially when you sacrificed balls, boobs and backbone to avoid combat duty yourself. At least you aspnaz’s respect.

    Dr. D

    Yes, it’s called DTCC and it’s a single holder of all stocks now. Like having a single wallet for all crypto. So who owns the DTCC? King Charles? Taylor Swift? The Pope? No one knows, but it hardly matters since reality, politics, will immediately take over if anyone tries anything. I can see not only ALL JPMorgan, not only ALL Berkshires and Blackrocks, not only ALL Home Offices, not only ALL Unions, Pensions, not only ALL foreign government accounts, but EVERY U.S. citizen and everyone worldwide, including everyone in NYC as they are discredited for 1,000 years, if they don’t behave properly.

    So that’s not the problem. …Although of course it is.

    The problem is that NO ONE KNOWS WHO OWNS ANYTHING. It’s the vanguard of the MERS database. On a side, they put very real mortgage titles INTO the database, and traded them, but without perfect accounting, or any checks, in just a year or two, so many titles were traded that no one knows who owns what anymore. They are the Star-bellied Sneetches of stock. No titles were registered at the County Clerks’ — EVER — because it would cost a buck and take a few days. So the system said “Trust Us!” We’ve hypothecated all of America, what could go wrong?

    Wrong? Well, Residents were paying the WRONG guy, that was pretty wrong. Owners were being billed TWICE, and evicted. They were being told they DIDN’T pay after they had. PEOPLE WHO NEVER HAD A MORTGAGE WERE evicted. How’d they get in there??? Without oversight at all, come jackass just typed random addresses in for collateral. And what was really going on: All the MBS’s were based on properties in MERS, who didn’t have any accounting to begin with. So with absolute certainty, a single property is owned by 2 (we saw already) 4, 10, 40, 500 1,000 different people.

    The only need in a compounding debt-based Ponzi or collapse? A: Collateral. Infinitely-expanding. Or the whole shebang goes down and you with it.

    Suppose you’re the Good Guys: go ahead. You tell ME how to fix it. First, if there is any doubt — ANY — in the financial system, there will be the biggest run on the bank in the history of earth. NY will be discredited forever. USA will be discredited, forever. The whole WEST, including London, Frankfort, Switzerland, will be discredited for a lifetime. Who does that serve? Yet They did it on purpose. “They knew they would be bailed out” — The Big Short. Financial Terrorism.

    On the other hand, if you’ve sold the same house 25 times, it’s not like you can just go build 24 more and make up for it. And that collateral is the basis of MORE leverage elsewhere. Any debt-based system is like this, much as we may hate a gold-based system, which is corrupt and merely least-bad.

    Okay, back to the DTCC: Wall St captured everything in the 90s. Regulators, computer rigging, government, etc. There was no pushback so they had lost who owned what long before 1999. And without an exit plan, they were still creating new phantom shares maybe not without restraint, but at least without terror. Once you can’t keep records, the records are totally, totally screwed, whyever would you keep good records on top of nonsense, non-records? With 5 billion shares flying around worldwide daily? You really think they write them on a piece of paper, or even a computer? Some aren’t owned for 5 miliseconds. Who registered them?

    This has affected everything, as Taser, e.g. had 30% more voters than shareholders because there were just that many fake shares afloat. So CIA, Blackrock, heck, Soros, and Dave Ramsey could get control and illegally install Woke execs into Disney, Bud, anyone. How? Fake voting, just like politics. …Except they’re 100x more likely to think it’s real. Go private? Many companies went private to discover the share float hadn’t changed.

    “Naked Shorting” is a clear outgrowth of this as if you short, you in theory “borrow” the share from someone, ALREADY leaving the share in two places: you think it’s in your brokerage account, and E.F.Hutton will back it and make you whole, but technically it’s owned by the short-borrower. Two places at once. Two shares where once there were one? Is that er, um, maybe a downward bias on share prices you want to short??

    What happens if like MERS you keep ZERO paperwork on it? You can short MORE STOCK THAN THE WHOLE COMPANY EXISTS, and do it…for FREE. So if you have insider’s ear at Morgan, Own one guy at Risk Management, you can Issue 50x all stock and drive them BELOW ZERO if you feel like it.

    Capitalism! Free Markets! Yes, this is why over time there are NO markets anymore. Only politics. Only interventions.

    Fine, great. So…smart guy, there are 500x more shares than the Legal Desk in any of these companies ever issued. Not only that, but unlike ordinary Cons, we don’t have a “Mark”. ...We literally have no idea who we issued them to, who owns them, who we wronged, nothing. We legally and literally cannot make anyone whole. No judge, no committee, could ever unwrap and fix it — EVER — even if they WANTED to, and even if it didn’t bankrupt every Bank, Brokerage, and Insurer, and even if it DIDN’T destroy confidence in NY, America, and the entire West for lifetimes. Even if.

    So…you see… by 1999, — Twenty years ago — they ALREADY knew they had to have a nationwide, Western-wide total market shutdown, meltdown, and collapse. That’s why in “The Big Short” nothing mattered and anything goes. There literally IS no tomorrow. And that’s why they planned the US to be attacked and conquered and erased. Why it HAS to be and why WE have to help. It can’t BE fixed, so what’s YOUR plan? The casino is ALREADY robbed, we’re just dodging the auditors. We’re just planning a building fire like “Office Space” to hide the hacking and missing zeros.

    Okay, so what happened instead? SOMEONE got control of this. SOMEONE decided to fix it instead. SOMEONE got Wall Street on board because otherwise they would all cease to exist forever. SOMEONE has a plan. A bad plan, but a PLAN to go forward. The Fed is one of those people, Morgan is another. This is in Luongo’s thesis that even though they’re all criminals, they don’t want to be hung either, and they actually love NY, love trading, love their companies, and don’t want to see them all tossed in the machine shredder forever, while they work in the Uranium mines for the newly conquering CCP.

    We still require a collapse and reset, but under CONTROL. To do that the only FIRST STEP is to get control of government out of Davos, etc and to someone who doesn’t actively and with nitro and fentanyl want to burn everything down and kill every American. That’s just the FIRST step. We’re still at Step One. It can be done though, and I think it is and I think it will be.

    Yeah, everything you own in EVERY account since they outlawed Paper Stock Certificates because of this? All fake. All digits. Poof. Like penny poker at camp. Spend while you can, because it’s only real until Mom comes in.

    Real assets? Hahahaha. Mortgages are little better. Get them in your hands, locally.

    Yeah, Martenson is deeply optimistic, generous, and conservative as we saw in his Covid coverage. And that’s good. But the reality is far, FAR worse. Sweet Dreams!


    What I learned about Covid19 and “Dr. Bonnie” and Global news etc. pushing vaccines.

    B.C. government to provide update on respiratory illness season, immunization campaign at 12:15 p.m.

    Dr Henry respiratory season update Nov 10

    Livestream available on YouTube.

    Initial notes from the presentation:

    Fall immunization uptake has so far 1,072,000+ doses of influenza vaccine and 847,458 COVID vaccines. “The campaign continues to be strong,” said Dix.
    This is the fourth respiratory season since pandemic began, noted Health Minister Dix.
    Repeated emphasis on good hygiene habits (get vaccinated, cover mouth/nose when coughing, wash hands with soap and water, do a daily check-in on your own health and that of your family, stay home when sick).
    Dix says the success of this year’s respiratory illness season immunization campaign (now one month in) is a combination of the roles of the ‘booking system, pharmacies, public health and people’.
    More appointments are being added to the system.
    Majority of vaccine recipients are getting both COVID and influenza at the same time.
    COVID infections seem to be levelling off, but more influenza and RSV infections are being seen. Most COVID hospitalizations are with older people.
    About 80% of the influenza infections are Influenza A and H1N1; very little Influenza B.
    Wastewater surveillance shows that more influenza and RSV infections are expected.
    Second peak of infections expected two weeks after the Christmas/New Year season “especially Influenza B”, said Dr Henry. She encourages people to get immunized now, ahead of socialization in the holiday season.
    Highest risk populations continue to be seniors (age 65+) as well as people with any health compromises; also residents of long-term care, Indigenous persons, people who are pregnant, and health-care workers.
    There’s a lot of mild illness; some people don’t even realize they’ve had COVID or influenza, said Dr Henry. Pay attention to fever and cough as signs you may have a respiratory infection.
    Avian flu (H5N1) is not normally transmissible to humans; workers in poultry farm areas should take additional hygiene precautions

    She is mixing/pushing truth and lies, for people to get vaccinated, to avoid getting badly sick, and to save the hospitals.
    There is no pandemic of Covid19.
    There is no pandemic of Omicron subvariant XBB 1.5 is still the most common subvariant in BC
    There is no updated covid19 vaccines.

    Watch all the football games, and ask yourself why are there is no pandemic, no hospitals overrun?

    She lost all my respect.
