“..IDF troops were placed on high alert ahead of Nasrallah’s speech, for fear that the militant leader would announce a major operation against the Jewish State. No such announcement came.”

Hezbollah ‘Entered Battle’ On October 8 – Nasrallah (RT)

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that his forces would continue their skirmishes with the Israeli military until Hamas achieves victory in Gaza. Nasrallah warned that an attack on Lebanon would be the “most foolish mistake” in Israeli history. “What is happening in Gaza today is not just another war; it is a decisive historical battle with consequences that will reshape the future,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech. Hezbollah’s objectives in this battle, he stated, are to “stop the aggression” on Gaza and ensure that Hamas “achieves victory” against Israel. Nasrallah’s speech was his first since Hamas militants launched their surprise attack on Israel on October 7. The Hezbollah leader said that his group was not involved in planning the attack, but took the opportunity to “enter the battle” the following day.

In the initial days of the war, Hezbollah limited its activity to sporadic rocket and small arms fire into Israel from Lebanese territory, with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) responding with artillery and drone strikes. These skirmishes have increased in frequency and intensity over the last two weeks, and IDF troops were placed on high alert ahead of Nasrallah’s speech, for fear that the militant leader would announce a major operation against the Jewish State. No such announcement came. Nasrallah said that his forces have contributed to the fight so far by tying up a third of Israel’s combat troops and almost half of its naval assets near the Lebanese border. This has reduced the number of troops available for the ground operation in Gaza and caused “a state of anxiety, anticipation, panic, and fear among the enemy’s political and military leadership,” Nasrallah claimed.

Hezbollah is ready for any escalation by the Israeli side, he said, warning West Jerusalem that “if you contemplate an attack or launch a military operation against Lebanon, you will commit the most foolish mistake in your existence.” Should a wider war break out, he warned the US that “you Americans will pay with your ships, your aircraft, and your soldiers.” Nasrallah added that “there will be more actions” against Israel on multiple fronts in the coming days. Israeli officials have issued similarly stark threats to Hezbollah too, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promising to strike Lebanon with “unimaginable strength” if Nasrallah’s group makes the “mistake of its life” by entering the war. Speaking in Tel Aviv immediately after Nasrallah’s speech, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that “with regard to Lebanon, with regard to Hezbollah, with regard to Iran – we have been very clear from the outset that we are determined that there not be a second or third front opened in this conflict.”

Russia, Israel, and the Law of War Regarding Civilians (Scott Ritter)

There has been much discussion in the aftermath of Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israeli military bases and settlements in the vicinity of Gaza related to issues of legitimate self-defense and the legality surrounding Israel’s use of force in response to that attack. Inevitably, this discussion leads to an effort to compare Russia’s conduct in the Special Military Operation with Israel’s behavior to date regarding Gaza. The particular example of Mariupol is often raised as a point of comparison with the ongoing Israeli operation in Gaza. While it is far too soon to be able to make such a direct comparison of those two battles, one can examine the foundation of international law relied upon by both Russia and Israel in justifying their respective military operations. Sadly, Israel is found wanting. Russia has cited the inherent right of individual and collective self-defense, as enshrined in Article 51 of the Charter, as justification for the initiation of its military operation.

Article 51 reads as follows:
“Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defense shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.” In his address announcing the initiation of the special operation, Russian President Vladimir Putin laid out a case for pre-emption, detailing the threat that NATO’s eastward expansion posed to Russia, as well as Ukraine’s ongoing military operations against the Russian-speaking people of the Donbass.

NATO and Ukraine, Putin declared, “did not leave us [Russia] any other option for defending Russia and our people, other than the one we are forced to use today. In these circumstances, we have to take bold and immediate action. The people’s republics of Donbass have asked Russia for help. In this context, in accordance with Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, with permission of Russia’s Federation Council, and in execution of the treaties of friendship and mutual assistance with the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic, ratified by the Federal Assembly on February 22, I made a decision to carry out a special military operation.”

”..Netanyahu’s tenuous hold on power is always “in the background” during internal Biden administration talks about West Asia..”

Netanyahu’s ‘Political Days Are Numbered’: White House (Cradle)

Joe Biden and top White House aides have discussed the likelihood that Benjamin Netanyahu’s “political days are numbered,” and are gauging potential successors as the popularity of the Israeli prime minister continues to plummet following last month’s successful Hamas attack on Israel, Politico reported on 2 November. The topic of Netanyahu’s anticipated fall from power has come up in recent White House meetings including following Biden’s most recent trip to Israel in which he met with Netanyahu following the surprise Hamas attack on 7 October, according to two senior administration officials. Biden has even suggested to Netanyahu that he should think about lessons he would share with his eventual successor, the two administration officials added. Separately, a current US official and a former US official both confirmed that the Biden administration believes Netanyahu will not remain in office for long.

The current official believes Netanyahu’s term as prime minister may last a just matter of months due to the Israeli public’s anger resulting from the surprise Hamas attack on 7 October and the intelligence failures that appeared to have occurred to allow it. Some 1,400 Israelis died during the Hamas attack, including soldiers and civilians. Some were killed by Hamas fighters, while others were killed in the crossfire as Israel used overwhelming force to eliminate Hamas fighters who had taken many Israelis captive. Hamas managed to take over 200 Israelis captive back to Gaza, and the Israeli public and even the captives themselves have been harshly critical of Netanyahu and his right-wing settler government, which have prioritized targeting Hamas and killing Palestinian civilians in Gaza over the captives’ safe return.

Further, many Israelis believe the government deliberately allowed the Hamas attack to happen, citing the slow response of the army and police as Hamas fighters penetrated deep into Israeli territory and targeted both military bases and settlements in the Gaza envelope. Netanyahu has promised to investigate the intelligence failings, but refuses to do so until the war is over, which may take months or even years. “There’s going to have to be a reckoning within Israeli society about what happened,” said the official who, like others, was granted anonymity to detail private conversations. “Ultimately, the buck stops on the prime minister’s desk.” Biden’s trip to Tel Aviv last month was one largely of support, but the current US official said that Netanyahu’s tenuous hold on power is always “in the background” during internal Biden administration talks about West Asia. And Biden aides already are engaging an array of other Israeli politicians, both in the government and the opposition, in the war effort. According to the two senior administration officials as well as the current and former US official, “those talks have also provided a way to gauge the thinking of various Israelis who might take the helm of the country,” Politico wrote.

This suggests the US may be looking to choose Netanyahu’s successor, as they did in Ukraine following the 2014 coup against then President Viktor Yanukovych. US officials have taken note of Netanyahu’s falling approval ratings and predict that any forthcoming Israeli or US assessments about the intelligence failure will likely be even more damning for the prime minister. Biden administration officials have offered public declarations of solidarity with the Israeli government, despite condemnations from human rights groups that Israel has targeted Palestinian civilians “on a mass scale.” But they are nevertheless concerned with who Netanyahu’s successor may be, and what the “day after” will look like in Gaza if Hamas is defeated. The Israeli government has prepared plans to ethnically cleanse and annex Gaza, forcing the strip’s 2.3 million residents to flee to Egypt as refugees, never to return. The White House included funding for relocating Gazans to Egypt’s Sinai in its recent supplemental funding request to Congress, suggesting approval of such an effort.

At the same time, White House officials have also floated the possibility of installing the Palestinian Authority, led by Mahmoud Abbas, in power in Gaza, or possibility of sending a multinational force, though not necessarily one with US troops, to control the territory. Netanyahu and Biden were at odds even before the war. Netanyahu was a strong supporter of former President Donald Trump, and did not appear pleased that Biden defeated him in the 2020 election. Biden has also distanced himself from Netanyahu following the prime minister’s effort to overhaul Israel’s judiciary upon regaining power in elections last December. Netanyahu has also been critical of US efforts to negotiate with Iran and the Biden White House’s lax efforts to enforce sanctions on Iran’s oil exports. This is presumably due to the influence of China, Iran’s biggest purchaser of oil, on Biden through business dealings with his son Hunter.

” If Biden loses in Ukraine, which is bound to happen in the next couple of months, it will be evident to everyone. It will be impossible to cover it up.”

Biden Needs Israel and Ukraine Conflicts to Avoid Jail Time – McGovern (Sp.)

Joe Biden is trying to twist the arms of House lawmakers to pass a hefty Ukraine aid package, while at the same time the White House is resisting efforts to impose a cease-fire in Gaza amid horrific civilian casualties.
While his team member, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan are known for their neoconservative stance, Biden has long been considered a moderate and entered the White House with the goal of ending the “forever wars”. Now the US president has no scruples about pouring more gasoline on the flames of conflicts in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. What’s behind Joe’s “radicalization”? “Biden has a personal stake in this,” CIA veteran Ray McGovern told Sputnik. “What do I mean? If Biden loses in Ukraine, which is bound to happen in the next couple of months, it will be evident to everyone. It will be impossible to cover it up. If he loses in Ukraine, he’ll be afraid to lose the election and his fears will be well-founded. And if this is the election, what do you think he also fears? He also fears that he’ll end up in prison.”

“That sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? But let’s say that fellow Trump becomes president again. I hold no brief for Trump, but he is a forwarder, let’s face it. Or somebody else with a feeling of vengeance to what the Republicans have suffered for the Democrats ever since the election in 2016. Let’s say they come into power. Well, court testimony shows that the evidence that not only Hunter, but daddy took money, took bribes, took all kinds of things. It’s pretty telling. It’s there. It’s enough, if someone is very vengeful, to move against not only Hunter, but Daddy,” the former CIA analyst continued. House Republicans have been after the Bidens for quite some time, and now they claim to have evidence of Hunter and his father’s involvement in alleged influence-peddling schemes.

According to them, the Biden family has been selling Joe Biden’s “brand” for a long time, considering that he once held top positions in both Congress and the White House. Back in October 2020, the New York Post published an expose based on the so-called “laptop from hell,” which presumably contained damning evidence about then-presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son. However, Team Biden did everything it could to sweep the matter under the rug. “Famously, Blinken played a key role in making sure that Biden won the election in 2020. What did he do? Well, most people don’t remember this, but when Hunter Biden’s laptop was found and, by the way, given to the FBI, this was a big kerfuffle. This was a big deal. So what were they going to do before the election? It showed not only Hunter involved in scurrilous activity, but taking bribes and mentioning his dad and influence peddling. And there was some of that dad involvement. So what were the Democrats going to do? Blinken: ‘I got an idea. We’ll make this work. I’ll call my friend Mikey Morrell.’ He used to head the CIA. ‘Hey, Mike, can you gather maybe 50 or so former CIA directors and other high muckety bucks? How high intelligence and policy officials? All you need to say is that the Hunter’s laptop bears all the earmarks of a Russian intelligence disinformation operation.'”

Biden’s Disregard for Arab Suffering May Cost Him Presidency – Ex-Senator (Sp.)

US President Joe Biden’s ignoring of the suffering of the Arabs in the Middle East may cost him the presidency, former Virginia State Senator Richard Black told Sputnik. Over 9,000 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its military campaign in Gaza in response to the October 7 Hamas terror attack, according to the most recent UN update. On Friday, media reported that the Biden administration asked Israel to explain a strike on the Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza that left 400 hundred dead or injured. “President Biden’s disregard for Arab suffering may cost him the presidency,” Black said. “The Associated Press reports that Michigan’s large Muslim community has turned against him; if Biden loses Michigan, he may lose the election.”

Black believes that the violence in Gaza has split the Democrat Party, causing a vexing dilemma for Biden. “Democrats cannot function without Jewish political contributions,” he said. “According to the Jerusalem Post, their contributions constitute over half of all donations to the Democrat Party. Wealthy Jewish donors insist that Biden allow Israel to continue its unconstrained bombing campaign in the Gaza Strip. If he does not support the bombing, they may not contribute to his 2024 campaign.” The former lawmaker went on to say that, meanwhile, two of the Democrats’ most crucial voting blocks are “bitterly at odds over the war.”

“In 2020, Jews voted 75% Democrat, and 65% of Muslim-Americans did likewise. On October 31st, Reuters reported that Arab American support for Biden and the Democrats had plunged to 17% in recent polls,” he noted. Black thinks that even before the latest events in the Gaza Strip, Democrats had already suffered an erosion of Muslim support. The ensuing disorder in public schools, Black continued to say, has caused a dramatic decline in student test scores, including the steep fall in math and reading scores.

Hamas Ready For ‘Complete Compromise’ To Swap Prisoners With Israel (TASS)

The radical Palestinian group Hamas is ready for a “complete compromise” deal on the issue of swapping hostages with Israel, Ghazi Hamad, a senior member of Hamas’ political bureau, said in an interview with NBC News. “We want these people to go home,” Hamad said. “And, also, we want our prisoners now to go home. So I think we are ready now to have complete compromise, complete a deal, in order to receive all the hostages, either military or civilians,” he explained, adding that Israel must “release all the prisoners from the Israeli detention centers.” The TV channel noted that “the Israelis are sure to reject” this demand. Talking about the conflict in general, the Hamas representative said that the group wants to continue fighting “against the occupation,” because it has the “legal right to fight against the occupation” “according to international law.”

As for the group’s October 7 attack on Israel, Hamad said that the Hamas militants never intended to kill civilians. “Within our religion in Islam, it is prohibited to harm or to kill any civilians,” the official said. “But what happened maybe in the first day that, that when people (the militants – TASS) went inside, and there is a wide area, there’s people, there’s some complication there.”

Tensions flared up again in the Middle East on October 7 when militants from the Gaza-based Palestinian radical group Hamas staged a surprise incursion into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip. Hamas described its attack as a response to the aggressive actions of Israeli authorities against the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. In response, Israel has announced a total blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to 2.3 million Palestinians, and has begun delivering air strikes on the enclave and certain parts of Lebanon and Syria. Clashes are underway in the West Bank as well. On October 27, IDF Spokesman Daniel Hagari said that Israel was expanding the scale of its ground military operation in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli Army Forms ‘Settler Militias’ (Cradle)

The Israeli army is recruiting settlers who have not undergone military service in order to post them as “defense militiamen” in the settlements they reside in, Hebrew newspaper Haaretz reported on 2 November. “The recruits are expected to undergo accelerated basic training for three weeks, after which they will be armed and stationed in the settlements,” the report says. Settlers between the ages of 27 and 50 who have not completed their military service will be eligible to apply for the program. “Candidates were asked to fill out a form to indicate, among other things, their religious affiliation such as ultra-Orthodox, national-religious, national ultra-Orthodox, religious or other.” The settlements in question are the ultra-Orthodox West Bk settlements of Ibei Hanachal, Ma’ale Amos, Emmanuel, Beitar Ilit, Modi’in Ilit, and Tel Zion.

Settlers applying for the program will be examined according to “various criteria.” The training is set to begin in two weeks. According to what an army representative told various individuals inquiring about the program, settlers with criminal records could join the service depending on the “nature” of their crime. Another settler was told that the army would “overlook” criminal records depending on whether or not the applying settler was serious about the job. Haaretz states that since the start of the Gaza-Israel war on 7 October, the Israeli army has distributed around 8,000 weapons to “settlement defense squads.” “We will turn the world upside down so that towns are protected. I have given instructions for massively arming the civilian security teams to provide solutions for towns and cities,” National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir said on 10 October.

The Hebrew daily also states that around 1,500 ultra-Orthodox settlers have submitted requests to join the army’s reserve ranks. Israel’s plan to militarize the settlements comes as West Bank settlers have stepped up violent attacks and threats against Palestinians. A UN report released on 1 November says that hundreds of Palestinians have been forcibly displaced from their homes in the occupied West Bank. Just days ago, 141 Palestinians from the southern West Bank town of Khirbat Zanuta fled their homes after armed settlers threatened to kill them if they refused to leave.

“’s time for Jewish Americans to get out of the Democratic Party and re-assimilate into an American common culture..”

The Jewish American Dilemma (Kunstler)

Tikkun Olam means repair the world. This has been driving American Judaism since the early 20th century. Meanwhile, the genocide of the 1940s gave new impetus to next year in Jerusalem for what remained of the European Jews, and thus you get the establishment of Israel in 1948 — notwithstanding the geopolitical legerdemain that actually brought it about. American Jews, while sympathetic to a fault with the founding of Israel, and deeply vested emotionally in its success, had a different agenda in the USA after World War Two. They endeavored to repair America. Tikkun Olam! Mostly this expressed itself in Jewish support and involvement in the Civil Rights movement, since the end of discrimination against anybody was considered a good thing for the Jews as well as humanity in general. The country needed a moral repair job, especially after defeating manifest evil in the big war. That effort climaxed in the mid 1960s with the federal legislation that ended Jim Crow policy in voting and public accommodations.

Much of the actual on-the-ground work to make this happen was accomplished by Jewish lawyers. This is a fact, not an accusation. But then something happened. Several things. One was that not all of black America necessarily regarded the Civil Rights movement as the great moral victory it was touted to be. A lot of black youth in the 1960s opted out early on and went their own way in black separatist movements of various kinds. As a practical matter, it also slowly became obvious that the new Civil Rights laws did not raise up the black underclass out of poverty and misery. Jewish liberal apostates would even argue that the vast federal social safety-net program largess that accompanied Civil Rights Inc. only made the condition of poor blacks worse.

This became a growing fiasco for American Jewish liberals, who, by the 1980s, then strove to impose another set of repairs (more tikkun olam) on American society: multiculturalism, meaning it was no longer necessary to promote a common culture that people would be encouraged to assimilate into, to join a consensus of values and behaviors. Instead, all cultures could behave according to their own rules. That hasn’t worked out so well either, and the world repairers have lately had to resort to coercion such as tyrannical diversity, equity, and inclusion policies and the shoving aside of equal opportunity for enforced equal outcomes (“equity”). That business has only produced additional unintended consequences, such as the new epidemic of institutional incompetence and the resentment of at least half the population against new forms of counter-discrimination (cultural Marxism, in short).

Another poorly understood byproduct of this failure to repair the world is the guilt and shame secretly experienced by the American liberal Left over the apparent failure of the Civil Rights movement they fought so hard for, and the subsequent failed efforts to tweak it and save it (still more tikkun olam). Thus, we see the absurd racist “anti-racism” of the universities, and so many other affronts to common sense and reality itself. But the worst byproduct of all this tragically misguided tikkun olam is that the main political vehicle for it, the Democratic Party, has gone so insane that it now devotes itself fanatically to the utter destruction of what remains of our country. This is most particularly true in the law, which might be considered the backbone of America. Lawfare attorneys such as Marc Elias, work tirelessly to turn American election law upside down and inside out so it becomes increasing impossible to know who is voting and if the ballots are legitimate.

The Democratic Party has decided it’s okay to use the law in bad faith to persecute and jail its political opponents. The Democratic Party has destroyed American’s faith in the federal courts, the Department of Justice, and the FBI. The Democratic Party allows an invasion of millions of unvetted aliens across the border, quite a few of them possibly bent on making mayhem here as global tensions careen into hot war. The Democratic Party is still pushing Covid vaccinations that are well-understood at this point to be ineffective and unsafe. And the Democratic Party is doing everything possible (with help from RINO Republicans) to destroy our financial system. You could easily make the case that the Democratic Party is the anti-American Party. If they really want to repair the world, it’s time for Jewish Americans to get out of the Democratic Party and re-assimilate into an American common culture — a consensus about reality — that is consistent with running a successful, orderly, and just society.

Zelensky is so yesterday..

Vote to Prioritize Israel Aid Likely to Doom Ukraine War Strategy (Sp.)

President Joe Biden sought to exploit the major escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on October 7 to leverage an extra $60 billion-worth of weaponry for his proxy conflict with Russia in Ukraine. His administration has packaged both into an omnibus emergency spending bill including $14 billion for Israel, which his aides are lobbying for on Capitol Hill. But recently-elected House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), voted in after hardline Republicans opposed to more Ukraine spending ousted Kevin McCarthy from the post in a historic vote, has insisted the two funding requests must be voted on separately. “So, yes, it will affect Zelensky’s conduct of the war – bigly,” US constitutional historian and political commentator Dan Lazare said on Thursday. “If Biden can’t peel away a few Republicans so that Ukrainian aid slips through, the spigot will run dry and the Ukrainian war effort will stop.”

Such a move would trigger immediate catastrophe for the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and Zelensky’s ragged, corrupt and increasingly widely criticized regime in Kiev, Lazare said. “The result will be a military debacle on the scale of Afghanistan, if not bigger,” he said. “Republicans are playing a high-stakes game in which the aim is to cause the administration to collapse under the impact. They may well succeed.” International consultant and retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel Earl Rasmussen said splitting the funding would be a body blow to Ukraine though he expected the Biden administration to continue getting significant financing to Kiev. In order to pass legislation, which is Johnson’s primary responsibility, there will need to be some compromise, Rasmussen said.

“Hence, I think we will see reduced funding for Ukraine but perhaps increased for Israel depending how the conflict evolves. That is why I think we will see an increase in funding for Israel,” he said. Politically, low or non-funding for Israel would mean a quick end to Johnson’s speakership, Rasmussen observed. “The Israeli lobby owns the Congress – both sides. Moreover, Israel is very important from a strategic geopolitical perspective to ensure or support their existence and independence,” he said. Media critic and political analyst Bryce Greene pointed out that even before Johnson split the aid packages for Israel and Ukraine, there had been clear signs that support for Kiev and Zelensky was waning on Capitol Hill. “However even before this speaker nonsense, there were indications that the establishment support for Ukraine was waning. The Palestine situation has, of course, directed attention away from Eastern Europe,” he said.

Trends Journal Publisher and former hedge fund manager Gerald Celente said Johnson would bow to changing political realities and cut back on funding for the Zelensky regime and its armed forces. “Unless there is a major event that brings Kiev back into the headline news which they have not been in since the Israel War began, there will be a lot less money flowing into Ukraine,” he said. The far more powerful pro-Israel lobby would override supporters for Ukraine in its drive for priority funding, Celente stressed. “AIPAC, the powerful Jewish congressional leaders and the Jewish Washington power brokers will make a major push for more money to Israel, and there will be a downplay in support for Ukraine as it fades from the headline news,” he said.

“Zelensky has built “a criminal dictatorship of Nazism and militarism, and that is why he will be the last president of the nation, which he had betrayed with such cynicism.”

Zelensky Will Be Ukraine’s Last President – Exiled Opposition Leader (RT)

Ex-Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Medvedchuk, now in exile in Russia, denounced Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky in a column on Friday. The former politician said that the current Ukrainian head of state may well be the last, and Zelensky only has himself to blame. In his piece, Medvedchuk called Zelensky a merciless “professional traitor” whose pattern of stabbing everyone in the back for his own gain has ruined the country. After being elected president on a platform of peace with Russia and reconciliation with Donbass, Zelensky “ceded power to radical nationalists, adopting their rhetoric and behavior,” Medvedchuk wrote. In doing that, he betrayed the people who voted for him. “Zelensky simply got scared of becoming a peacemaker since it would require him to oppose aggressive forces inside and outside of the country,” he argued.

Instead of delivering on the promise of fighting corruption, he and his team “saddled the financial flows.” And after hostilities with Russia broke out last year, the president “realized that the war can be profitable” too. According to Medvedchuk, Zelensky acted as a US tool to pressure European nations to sacrifice their economic well-being for Ukraine. “In fact, Zelensky betrayed the interests of not only Ukraine but also the EU,” he claimed. The column mentioned the recent arrest of Yury Kolomoysky, a once-powerful oligarch whose media empire allowed Zelensky to become a popular comedian before running for office. Medvedchuk claimed that it was another example of the president’s backstabbing. “Having betrayed everyone, [Zelensky] is now alone. He has no allies, only a flock of flatterers, who will sell him out if given a reasonable price,” he wrote.

Zelensky has built “a criminal dictatorship of Nazism and militarism, and that is why he will be the last president of the nation, which he had betrayed with such cynicism.” Medvedchuk led a political party, which had the largest opposition faction in the Ukrainian parliament, before 2022. Amid the conflict with Russia, Kiev branded him a traitor, cracked down on his political activities, and seized all his assets. The politician was arrested and handed over to Moscow in a prisoner swap in September last year. The column was the man’s comment on a TIME profile of Zelensky, in which insiders described the president as delusional and calcified in his determination to pursue a military victory. Aleksey Danilov, a senior Ukrainian security official, said the anonymous sources who spoke to the magazine should be identified and punished for disloyalty.

“..But Zelensky is against it, as he has repeatedly said with varying degrees of hysteria: who needs elections, he suggests, when I am saving humanity?”

Russia Must Protect Zelensky (Poletaev)

The November issue of Time magazine features a cover with a small portrait of Vladimir Zelensky and the word “Nobody” above it. The word in larger type is part of the longer headline “Nobody Believes in Our Victory Like I Do” but, whatever the designers had in mind, it was unmistakable: Zelensky equals a nobody. The similarly illustrated article was no less scandalous. It made everything clear: we Russians must keep Zelensky as the apple of our eye, because no one brings more chaos to the conduct of hostilities on the Ukrainian side and more discord to Kiev’s relations with the West than he does. The article describes how Zelensky, who sees himself as the savior of humanity, loses touch with reality the further he goes: it was he who demanded that Bakhmut be held at all costs, burning reserves there which were intended for the summer counteroffensive.

It is he who is still calling for an offensive in the south, once again destroying his people and valuable Western equipment in pointless attacks, and thus intensifying his conflict with the army’s leadership. It is he who is demanding an offensive on Gorlovka and, as long as he is president, no one in Ukraine dares to make a peep about negotiations with Russia, the necessity of which is becoming more and more obvious. And all this against a backdrop of gargantuan levels of theft. The Time article is a black mark. American elites have realized that as long as Zelensky is in power in Ukraine, Western support will either be burned for one man’s ambitions or simply plundered – both to Russia’s advantage.

Obviously, Washington needs to replace the disgraced Napoleon-wannabe with someone more manageable – the question is how. Preferably in a good way, by organizing presidential elections in due course next spring, and some movement in this direction has already begun: the political scene has been revived, yesterday’s heroes like Pyotr Poroshenko and Yulia Timoshenko have re-emerged, even Zelensky’s former adviser Alexey Arestovich, who a year ago spoke enthusiastically of Ukraine’s imminent victory, has cleverly changed his shoes and started to reveal the truth about the disastrous leadership of his old boss. But Zelensky is against it, as he has repeatedly said with varying degrees of hysteria: who needs elections, he suggests, when I am saving humanity? If you want elections, hold them yourself at your own expense, and so on. Society is also against it (according to various polls, 60%-80% of Ukrainians believe that the next vote should be held after the end of hostilities).

Public opinion could have been ignored (this corresponds to the standards of Western democracy), but if Zelensky goes to the polls, he will win them: he is still the most popular politician among Ukrainians (76% approval, with only the army having a higher rating). Zelensky is more popular than all other possible candidates combined. This is down to two years of rolling military propaganda and the information bubble that has trapped Ukrainian society, which has been brainwashed into believing that the country is winning.

In addition, Zelensky and his entourage, led by the Grey Cardinal Andrey Yermak, wiped out the opposition inside the country, destroying the traditional intra-elite system in which oligarchs organized party projects and elected presidents to suit themselves. Zelensky and Yermak created a power vertical unprecedented by Ukrainian standards, restricted to a narrow circle of friends. In general, the process of dismantling traditional regional privileges that began under Poroshenko has been completed: now the direction must be obtained in Kiev, and all financial flows (which have been reduced almost entirely to Western money) pass through the capital. The information field has been cleaned up – there is almost no media independent of the presidential administration left in the country.

All this means that the US will not be able to quickly create a political project to replace Zelensky: paradoxically, since the beginning of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, its control over internal Ukrainian processes has diminished and is now reduced to control over Zelensky, who, it seems, cannot be controlled. In fact, he is uncontrollable. There are two options left: either to persuade Zelensky to leave amicably by pointing to Washington’s chosen successor, or simply to kill him: a dead hero is better than a living psycho. Of course, all this is to our advantage: the longer Zelensky remains in power, the longer Ukraine will continue to fight, bringing its collapse closer. Therefore, we should take care of Zelensky, and protect him as best we can.

Western Nations ‘Changing Tune’ On Defeating Russia – Putin (RT)

Western nations, who previously insisted that Ukraine should defeat Russia on the battlefield, are gradually changing their position, President Vladimir Putin noted on Friday. “They are changing their tune now, saying different things,” the Russian leader told members of the Civic Chamber, a civil society body tasked with consulting the government on policy making. Putin was arguing that the nation should become stronger in all aspects, such as the economy, military, and political stability. Such strength deters hostile actors from trying to to isolate Russia, he said. “They (EU nations) excluded our energy. So what? What is the result? Our GDP will grow [up to] 3% this year, and the leading European economies are shrinking,” he noted. “They suffer, they have real problems,” Putin added, noting that he was saying this with joy. “This doesn’t mean that we should behave aggressively. It means we must be sovereign in every sense of the word,” he concluded.

The US and its allies have accused Russia of launching an “unprovoked” attack on Ukraine last year and have pledged to support Kiev for “as long as it takes” to defeat Moscow. Washington has stated that its goal in Ukraine is to inflict a “strategic defeat” on Russia. Moscow said the hostilities were caused by Western refusal to address Russia’s concerns about NATO expansion and Kiev’s discriminatory policies against Russian speakers after the 2014 armed coup. The US allegedly stopped the Ukrainian government from striking a truce in the first weeks of the ongoing conflict, which would have made it a neutral nation. Kiev has declared that the only outcome it would accept is to push Russia out of all territories that it claims as its own, including Crimea. It has failed to secure any significant gains on the frontline during the so-called summer counteroffensive this year. “Despite the supply of new kinds of NATO weapons, the Kiev regime is losing,” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said earlier this week, assessing the battlefield situation.

US, EU Officials Broach Topic Of Peace Negotiations With Ukraine (NBC)

U.S. and European officials have begun quietly talking to the Ukrainian government about what possible peace negotiations with Russia might entail to end the war, according to one current senior U.S. official and one former senior U.S. official familiar with the discussions. The conversations have included very broad outlines of what Ukraine might need to give up to reach a deal, the officials said. Some of the talks, which officials described as delicate, took place last month during a meeting of representatives from more than 50 nations supporting Ukraine, including NATO members, known as the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, the officials said. The discussions are an acknowledgment of the dynamics militarily on the ground in Ukraine and politically in the U.S. and Europe, officials said.

They began amid concerns among U.S. and European officials that the war has reached a stalemate and about the ability to continue providing aid to Ukraine, officials said. Biden administration officials also are worried that Ukraine is running out of forces, while Russia has a seemingly endless supply, officials said. Ukraine is also struggling with recruiting and has recently seen public protests about some of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s open-ended conscription requirements. And there is unease in the U.S. government with how much less public attention the war in Ukraine has garnered since the Israel-Hamas war began nearly a month ago, the officials said. Officials fear that shift could make securing additional aid for Kyiv more difficult.

Some U.S. military officials have privately begun using the term “stalemate” to describe the current battle in Ukraine, with some saying it may come down to which side can maintain a military force the longest. Neither side is making large strides on the battlefield, which some U.S. officials now describe as a war of inches. Officials also have privately said Ukraine likely only has until the end of the year or shortly thereafter before more urgent discussions about peace negotiations should begin. U.S. officials have shared their views on such a timeline with European allies, officials said. “Any decisions about negotiations are up to Ukraine,” Adrienne Watson, spokesperson for the National Security Council, said in a statement. “We are focused on continuing to stand strongly in support of Ukraine as they defend their freedom and independence against Russian aggression.”

An administration official also noted that the U.S. has participated with Ukraine in discussions of its peace summit framework but said the White House “is not aware of any other conversations with Ukraine about negotiations at the moment.” President Joe Biden has been intensely focused on Ukraine’s depleting military forces, according to two people familiar with the matter. “Manpower is at the top of the administration’s concerns right now,” one said. The U.S. and its allies can provide Ukraine with weaponry, this person said, “but if they don’t have competent forces to use them it doesn’t do a lot of good”

“..the DOJ has so far “submitted no evidence of any actual or imminent threat to the administration of justice.”

Trump Lawyers File Emergency Motion With Appeals Court to Block Gag Order (ET)

Attorneys for former President Donald Trump on Nov. 2 filed an appeal with a federal court in an effort to lift a gag order restricting his speech in the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) federal election case, accusing him of attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Lawyers for President Trump, in an emergency request with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, urged the court to temporarily block a gag order ruling from U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan while their client pursues an appeal. The gag order, as requested by government prosecutor special counsel Jack Smith, bans President Trump from making any public statements or directing others to make any public statements that “target” the prosecution and defense legal teams, court staff, and supporting personnel, and any “reasonably foreseeable” potential witnesses or their testimony in the case.

President Trump—who has pleaded not guilty to the charges in the DOJ’s case against him regarding alleged election interference—had sought the same kind of relief from the gag order from Judge Chutkan herself but she declined to grant it earlier this week. Instead, she reinstated the gag order after previously approving his request for an administrative stay or pause after the government filed its opposition to the temporary lifting of the order. In their court filing Thursday, lawyers for President Trump argued the gag order violates his First Amendment rights and those of “over 100 million Americans who listen to him,” adding that his “uniquely powerful voice has been a fixture of American political discourse for eight years, and central to the American fabric for decades.”

“The prosecution’s request for a Gag Order bristles with hostility to President Trump’s viewpoint and his relentless criticism of the government—including of the prosecution itself,” his attorneys wrote in the filing. “The Gag Order embodies this unconstitutional hostility to President Trump’s viewpoint. It should be immediately stayed,” they said. “No court in American history has imposed a gag order on a criminal defendant who is actively campaigning for public office—let alone the leading candidate for President of the United States,” his attorneys continued. “Given the Gag Order’s extraordinary nature, one would expect an extraordinary justification for it. Yet none exists.” Lawyers for President Trump noted that their client had made public statements about the election case “for months” but that the DOJ has so far “submitted no evidence of any actual or imminent threat to the administration of justice.”

Group Sued Over 2020 Fraud Claims Says It Can Prove Trump Won in Georgia (ET)

Former Black Voices for Trump leader Harrison Floyd’s legal team intends to prove his innocence of claims he unlawfully participated in an election subversion plot in Fulton County, Georgia, by showing that former President Donald Trump won the state’s 2020 presidential election. Mr. Floyd was charged on Aug. 14 alongside the 45th president and 17 other co-defendants with violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements and writings, and influencing witnesses. He was the only defendant to spend time in jail due to the indictment before he was released on bond on Aug. 30. “Your Honor, this case isn’t about whether you or I think that Donald Trump lost the election. It’s about what Mr. Floyd believed at the time,” noted Chris Kachouroff, one of Mr. Floyd’s defense attorneys, at a Nov. 3 hearing before Judge Scott McAfee.

“It’s also [about] what the false statements are alleged to have been, and indeed, are they really false,” he said. The judge ordered the hearing in response to motions to quash three sweeping subpoenas Mr. Floyd’s legal team served to the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, the Fulton County Clerk of Courts, and the Fulton County Board of Elections. Materials the attorneys requested included the ballot images and envelopes for all absentee ballots cast in the 2020 general election, all absentee ballot application forms, reports from the Dominion voting machines used, and all laptops and poll pads used by election workers, along with other documents, files, and drives.

Attorneys also requested all documents and recordings concerning the secretary of state’s post-election investigation into allegations of election fraud. “The state chose to open this door,” Mr. Kachouroff said. “It is a broad and sweeping complaint. They opened the door wide open for us to walk in and ask for these things.” The attorney noted that the 98-page indictment repeatedly asserts as fact that President Trump lost the 2020 election in Georgia, and the charges against Mr. Floyd are predicated on that claim. But if Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is wrong and President Trump actually won the election, then Mr. Floyd cannot be guilty of soliciting “false statements and writings” that conveyed as much.

The indictment also maintains that Mr. Floyd and the other co-defendants were aware that President Trump lost the election and that their actions constituted an unlawful conspiracy to change the results in his favor. That assertion, Mr. Kachouroff said, would also be undermined by proof that the former president won or even just proof that the election’s outcome is uncertain. And the subpoenaed materials, he argued, are likely to contain that proof. “We could make that argument that he’s innocent no matter what happened,” he noted. “And, of course, we would. We’re defense attorneys; that’s what we do. “But at the end of the day, those are the possible options down the road that could arise. Right now, we believe we’re at Option 1, that President Trump indeed won the election, and we can prove it—with respect to Fulton County.”

    The Grandfather paradox.
    It suggests that time is an illusion but is predicated on the creation of a time machine.
    It suggests time is non-linear (i.e. you can go back and then forward – which is another mechanism for contending there is at least ‘flexi-time’) and thus controllable from ‘Outside of Time’.
    You would then be not bound by Time to be able to mess with it. Being unbound would render Time a meaningless artefact of an insane thought system.

    Being born into Time insists one is a product of Time and thus an effect. Being born posits you are a non-causative agent or object in time. Powerless.

    The paradox suggests a cause is eliminated by its own effect.

    This is the secret wish of the ego or individual, living the seeming dream of separation that it has eliminated Cause or God. It then hides in objects, projection of causation outside itself and becomes ‘innocent’ as victim of the world (new cause).
    This is the mechanism by which we bullshit ourselves that anything is happening in the phenomenal world and that we exist as individual consciousness.
    The alternative is to empty the mind, allow awareness of Timeless/Ceaseless Cause (GOD) to occur.

    Fear blocks the willingness toward silence of mind and true emptiness where we become filled vessels of Love’s presence.
    The mechanism to reduce fear is to look at the choice of alternatives.
    I choose distractions and suffer. The humility helps.

    “Hezbollah Chief: US “Directly Responsible” For Gaza Atrocities, Will Soon Pay “Heavy Price”

    Well that’s ominous. Of course we always maximize anything they say, but saying so is pretty positional to do an attack. I mean defense. I mean attack.


    10 years running, and all the years of rise up to that point. Too soon? May be we should examine the problem further? Hey, Maryland wasn’t ALWAYS dead last, behind Cambodia in everything, maybe we should go back to doing what we did then? NOPE! Because if we gave them Primers of 1911 with chalkboards, everybody knows we’d have to use horses, candles, and install those second drinking fountains. There Is No Alternative. That’s just Common Sense!

    ““In a world that is not conforming to the narrative of continuous Progress, the response from self-declared progressives has been to try to rewrite our past into the multicultural utopia that they wish to see realized. This will not end well. The war on reality cannot be won.” — Luke Dodson

    That is true. The fundamentalist religion of these violent, witch-burning zealots, is Progress. Or its political form, “Progressivism”. We are the sum total of the universe, practically perfect in every way. God’s own Manifest Destiny for us is to kill all the Indians and 54-40 or Bust I mean that we should have pocket computers and flying cars, and the world is the best BECAUSE it, and we exist. That’s just evolutionary logic. Therefore, every person in the past is stupid, immoral, and wrong, and the further back we go, the more unhappy, sick, dead, stupid, immoral, and cave-man-like they are. Therefore, if you like ANYTHING of the past at all, if you’re not ready to burn it all down in the Glorious Revolution of Techno-Utopia, you are immoral, stupid, and wrong. And we all know what “moral people” must do in that case: Murder Everybody.

    I kid you not, this is the meta-foundation of their every statement. Just as “Kill all Humans” is the meta-foundation of every (modern) ecological CO2 statement.

    Speaking of, where is AFKTT? I hope he’s alright. Maybe running for office in the rapidly changing New Zealand?

    A short explanation of Australia:

    The quote above is from Kunstler, and an interesting article. A foray like that requires more of a book, so it’s difficult, not Twitter-ready. He ends with “If they really want to repair the world, it’s time for Jewish Americans to get out of the Democratic Party and re-assimilate into an American common culture — a consensus about reality — that is consistent with running a successful, orderly, and just society.”

    Problem being, an “successful, orderly, and just society” is what they think they are making. So their root assumptions and paradigms would have to completely alter, which never happens before death. Thus it goes when you can inject a few lies into the programming. Just a few. Maybe it doesn’t even matter which ones. Then it will all crash. I’ve got you by the emotional balls and can run you around like a chicken to my service. Right?

    So the only way out is to find those lies, repudiate them, and return to the #Truth. That is, our only enemy.

    “Cruz Demands Feds Prove $66 Million Towards Policing ‘Misinformation’ Wasn’t Used To Censor Free Speech

    Errr…Whut? If they can’t prove a negative then therefore no one will be arrested for career-long Human Rights violations? But: Ted Cruz for ya.

    Here’s one plotline: Tether is the most successful product and company in crypto.”
    In an article on Tether.

    Huh. Government can’t seem to shut down Tether. Which is all Gray-zone and quite likely a fraud. Government appears to shut down and disadvantage everything else instead. Huh. Yet never occurs to them that TETHER IS THE GOVERNMENT. …So to speak. Rumor has it, since it was a fraud from Day 1, Fed and regulators cut a deal to take it over and control it. So it may in fact own US$, Bonds, at this point. Because Tether is now the NY Federal Reserve. Make of that what you will. I’d call it a safety valve and insurance if something goes wrong and they need leverage on crypto, or CBDC, even if it’s not the required-and-infinitely-tracked one. In fact, didn’t I just say they already are? That’s what Tether is: CBDC. Transition doorway the size of a Mack Truck between US$, Bonds, and Cryptoverse.

    Add that that Bitcoin is quite likely also a small basement room of Government/Fed White Hats who were concerned about evil CBDCs, and even that a return to the Gold standard would merely hand the world to certain European families who have the basements of their castles socked with gold. So Bitcoin got “off the ranch” as a public alternative to the evil central control. And if they squeezed to hard on Gold, or any one geographic location, (Venezuela, Nigeria) it would escape there to Bitcoin. As it has.

    But TOP TWO COINS ARE BOTH ESTABLISHMENT: Tether, and Bitcoin. Which is why the law magically goes around them all the time. “Some animals are more equal than others.” But in an orderly, milestone way.

    Also why FTX was taken down, By the Fed, on Election Night: they were trying to go around, collect power, issue their own coins, and essentially mill coins out of nothing the way the Eurodollar system mills US Dollars out of nothing. That’s inflation, and makes Cantillionaires of loons like SBF and the whole Democratic Party. Powell is trying to stop, or rather “Control” inflation, get back control of the US Dollar from Europe et al., and this one one major blowout in the plumbing that needed to be riveted over.

    Boom! First guy to go to jail since Madoff. Same system. Go look up who went after Madoff, where he was from, and what Madoff was doing. Almost the opening battle in the open financial World War III we’re in. Likewise SBF: was arrested, tried, evidence, went to jail. Simple, like a normal person. …Except that never happens. So why just these two times?

    Economist: A Rothschild outlet. “Israel must fight on”. Okay, does that not communicate something? Hey the Roths are Jewish and are getting Jews killed. On purpose, obvious from 10,00 miles away. Ask any strategist like Kissinger and he’d tell you so. Yet they arrange, fund, and kill them. Who are supposedly “us”., co-Jews. Does that not communicate something?

    “4 Straight Minutes of Nancy Pelosi/ Democrats & The Media Calling for Violence, Death, Destruction And Even His Assassination”

    Hillary-Zilfman. If only he didn’t hold back. If only we had known.

    So was this before or after she gave a tearful eulogy of Grand Wizard Byrd, saying “he taught her so much”? Before or after she worked with the Weathermen and supported books dedicated to Satan? Ah, if only we had known…

    What’s my point here? WE TOLD YOU. It had no effect whatsoever, you punched us in the face when we tried. WE TOLD THE JEWS about the Blue Cities. We told you when the radical feminists supported Farrakahn like last year, told all NY Jews to get lost. We told you when they, DiBlasio, attacked NYC temples, targeted Jewish playgrounds in Brooklyn. We told you the Left was schizophrenic and dangerous on campuses, at violent attacks with its own “Big tent” factions. We told you the trans thing was an attack on YOU, on women, and would erase all safe spaces and for example, all sports. We told you schools were failing, and the people making these priorities were the reason.

    On and on and on and on. But – and clearly – TELLING you means nothing. TELLING you has no effect. Only your fee-fees have any effect. So? …Here you go. Only going through it, FEELING it, SEEING it , LIVING it for yourself has the slightest effect on you.

    We tried everything else and this was it. I’d have been happy to stop back in 1953, 1973 after we already knew what Bezimov was about to tell you.

    “White House officials have also floated the possibility of installing the Palestinian Authority,”

    Because: Democracy. “Democracy” is when you DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD, what WE want you to do. If you vote in the wrong guy, then it’s not Democracy. QED.

    So Democracy and defending democracy is when we fly around the world installing leaders for everyone. The “right” leaders. But you can vote again until you get it right: look at the EU. Or not vote: we’ll just summarily remove you. Look at Italy.

    “House Republicans have been after the Bidens” , “they claim to have evidence”

    “other high muckety bucks?”

    Btw, that’s Mucky-mucks. It’s a Canadian word from 1st nations there, I think MicMac. (Nope, it’s Chinook)

    “Blinken: ‘I got an idea.” …CIA

    Uh, yes, except the whole media is supposed to never believe anything the government says, because the government is the status quo oligarchic capitalist billionaire class and is always lying against the working man. That’s how you #Resist. But the ENTIRE U.S. Media, 100% left-wing, University, educated media class BELIEVES everything the status quo oligarchic capitalist billionaire class tells them. ALWAYS. Because they love #Capitalist #Billionaires? So when did that start? Upton Sinclair would be so proud.

    In short: BLINKEN’S PLAN WOULD GO NOWHERE and be the funniest joke in America except that the CIA owns the whole Media (Church Commission, Mockingbird, 1975) and the whole Left and half the Right support it.

    Personally, I can’t believe the Government says ANYTHING and ANYONE believes them. If they said the sun rose in the east, I’d get up and look west. It literally can’t be made any clearer. Can anyone name ANYTHING in the last 30 years from them that wasn’t a lie? “WMD and ties to al-Qeada”, “Yellowcake”, “They’ll greet us with flowers” spoken to a generation of “Dominoes of Democracy” “I am not a Crook”.

    Is there ANYTHING that can break the spell of “Daddy would never”? A: No. It is an essential root of human nature. As long as the people are held in a child-state, they will ALWAYS trust daddy, NO MATTER what he does. …As demonstrated by non-stop record child abductions over the same period.

    “Israeli Army Forms ‘Settler Militias’ (Cradle)”

    Cool. Cool. just gave rifles to the people half of which oppose you in an Israeli Civil War. How do you think that’ll turn out?

    ““Zelensky has built “a criminal dictatorship of Nazism and militarism, and that is why he will be the last president of the nation, which he had betrayed with such cynicism.”

    Essentially, yes. Although as advertised, Russia will leave a embarrassing, expensive rump Nazi state that Europe will be forced to fund and drain on them in Kiev. I don’t know what to say about it. History, like Nature, isn’t kind. It only is. Life’s hard, but it’s harder if you’re stupid.

    “American elites have realized that as long as Zelensky is in power in Ukraine, Western support will either be burned”

    Wow, you’re kidding, right? Ze isn’t in power and never has been. What ‘power’ he carries the illusion from is given BY the “Western support” and exists not at all outside of them. So there is no “Zelensky” of which you speak. There is no power bloc in Ukraine, nor, even when there used to be a “Ukraine” of 25M people, did a single person in the “West” ever think about that nation or care.

    Zelensky is not “in power”. At least since 2014, America and Nuland paid at least $6B for an illegal coup, said, “F the EU”, we’ll install “our boy [sic] Yats” (from Israel), and run the whole country ourselves out of the foreign office as Brzezinski said as far back as 1979. No power. None. It is no more. It has ceased to be.

    UKRAINE STOPPED BEING A COUNTRY IN 2014. But that was okay when it was OUR country. We stole it fair and square, right?

    I can’t believe anyone would write such a thing or publish it. It’s moronic and only helps the cause of lies and #AntiLogos.

    “The US and its allies have accused Russia of launching an “unprovoked” attack on Ukraine last year and have pledged to support Kiev for “as long as it takes”

    They said it, therefore it was a lie. What they meant was the #Opposite. Because they are #AntiLogos. They can’t help it! It’s their religion. Radical, fundamentalist, religion.

    ““Manpower is at the top of the administration’s concerns right now,”

    What this really means is, they can’t get a Slavic genocide off the ground in Poland. Not just with the people – they never want war – but even among the Polish ruling class. Well that’s a first. The plan was to Russia overreact, and involve others, ESPECIALLY Poland, a NATO state (against all treaties). Instead Poland looks more likely to fight the EU, who keeps screwing around in their affairs.

    Awesome, as usual. Your pomes alone are reason enough to visit TAE.


    You mean to say that Trump’s sons agreed with their father’s opinion about the valuation of certain properties? What is so odd about that? Property valuation is highly subjective. Beyond the basics of valuation, there may be special circumstances that are not readily apparent. It doesn’t seem odd at all that Trump and sons would all be familiar with any special circumstances, nor that they might take their father’s valuation statements at face value, signing off on them without questioning the fundamentals.


    Flying surveillance drones over Gaza is not being at war, Unless, they are shot down.


    WW1 is the gift that keeps on giving lessons. Analogy for the Israel situation..

    Why was Germany stupid enough to bring the US into WW1 with unrestricted submarine warfare? A fresh 2 million man army on the European continent to contend with. Madness.

    America was propping up France and England. Financially. Materially. Germany had prepared for an artillery-heavy war using vast quantities of ammunition and the Entente had not. They didn’t have the howitzers – France and England put 1800’s mechanical recoil cannons into service and called them “heavy artillery” as if the symbolic gesture could close the gap. France and England launched massive kamikaze unsupported infantry assaults because they simply didn’t have the artillery ammunition.

    It was the huge resources of the united states – financial, raw materials, finished goods, that was propping up the Entente. Imagine the Entente in a knife fight, white as a sheet, nearly bloodless, hooked up to a continual blood transfusion and physically held up from behind by the US. Germany isn’t doing great, but is standing up without a prop and isn’t on continual blood transfusion.

    Meanwhile, the US, the premier neutral power, totally respects the UK blockade on goods going to not only Germany but neutrals that trade WITH Germany? Rules of war said UK could stop munitions and other war specific materials, but the UK decided essentially anything might help Germany in the war and was stopping it – against international treaty and law. Proof – Germany was starving. Germany doesn’t like buying food? Denmark and Netherlands don’t like to buy food and sell it to Germany at a markup? The UK wasn’t just blockading Germany, it was carefully stopping all food from being traded to neutrals in excess of what their own populations needed. Totally illegal not to mention immoral.

    1800’s America would have talked about freedom of the seas, freedom to trade with everyone. 1800’s America would have sent the fleet out, done escorted neutral convoys supporting EVERY neutral nation’s right to free trade. 1900’s america just rolled over for the UK. Massive support to Entente, zero similar behavior towards Germany, super ok with all neutrals not trading even basic food supplies with Germany. Sure, stop our trade with Germany and any neutral country you want. Anything you want, UK.

    And then president Wilson says there’s a magical protective forcefield around each american citizen. Any ship with ONE american citizen, regardless of flag flown or cargo carried is inviolate, ONE american killed anywhere on the seas is an act of war by Germany. Lusitania sunk – actually exploded due to the quantity of English munitions on board. Germany did full page ads in east coast newspapers: “the ships you are going on are full of munitions. we are going to sink them” But Wilson had assured -as if he wanted them to get killed – americans’ inviolability everywhere. Germany had suggested special designated civilian transport painted specially to ensure uboat captains would recognize them, but wilson wanted to go with “just one american anywhere is safe because we say so”

    So Lusitania explodes from all the war materials on board when torpedoed, just as the full page ads told the passengers would happen, and the US screeches about the loss of US lives (a result of american passengers trusting Wilson’s statements about their safety on the seas) instead of asking England why they are giving US Citizens rides across the Atlantic on huge bombs that are legitimate war targets.

    Germany was winning on the Western Front. They had a 5:3 casualty ratio advantage. Unlike the allies, when they wanted to do an offensive, sometimes it worked, and their offensives weren’t vague “if only we had a breakthrough” but accomplished useful things like incapacitate Verdun for Entente offensive operations or cut the Entente front in two by cutting their one major rail line.

    Meanwhile the Allies were bribing other countries in the war with promised spoils from their opponents. Immoral and against international law. Italy. Rumania. Basically taking over Greece over its monarch’s objections.

    The Central Powers weren’t innocent choir boys either, but they were watching America and especially Wilson wax morally-superior and self-righteous while watching the massive support of every kind for the Entente, while watching the immoral actions of what the Entente they were supporting. Germany knew full well the Entente would have come to the negotiating table long ago without the one-sided massive assistance, would have simply collapsed without even need for negotiation- similar to what happened to Germany in 1919.

    The only reason WW2 was still HAPPENING when the US entered the war as BECAUSE US involvement was distorting all the calculations of the involved parties. Reasonable people, without a blank check and an infinite waterfall of weapons, ammunition, food, raw materials, would have negotiated. Instead, even when Germany put out peace feelers, (inept and arrogant as they may have been) Entente starting-points for negotiation were fantastically demanding. Tottering there, white as a sheet, hooked up to a continual blood transfusion and being held up by behind by his buddy, saying something close to “ok, but you surrender unconditionally, I take everything you have, deal?” uh no.

    The massive one-sided unwavering support made the Entente powers agreement-incapable, negotiation-incapable, discussion-incapable. Made the war go on for years and years longer, millions more in casualties.

    And when Germany went to the US with all this, they discovered the US to was discussion-incapable as well.

    So yeah, savage inhumane unsporting unrestricted submarine warfare because even if the US won’t admit that it is now Germany’s main enemy, on a financial and material basis, those are the actual facts. US civilians drown in the ocean because they won’t agree to a recognized non combatant shipping system? Okay, well German children are starving to death increasingly for years, a state of affairs you are cooperating with completely WHILE posing as a moral superior – so okay, it is unfortunate if you can’t do the math.

    A historical miscalculation for Germany, but totally comprehensible. Not insane.

    Massive unwavering support for Israel has enabled BAD policies, BAD approaches to their problems. If Israel was dependent on only its own resources, it would have to play a completely different game with the powers and peoples in the region. A realistic one.

    I like Israel and Jews just fine, basically. Or at least I feel no particular need to do things TO Jews or Israel over the Palestinian issue – but I sure as hell don’t want my money, my resources, my nation’s armed forces, to be propping up unrealistic stupid inhumane actions for decades. Just go ahead and try it WITHOUT us supplying everything and see how it works out for you. You might magically, inexplicably find yourself making more rational humane decisions.

    Same with a lot of our troubles current-year. Both the problems being created and the seeming total lockdown on anyone anywhere solving problems themselves at any level no matter how small.

    Endless printed dollars can fund total foolishness and evil indefinitely. Bitcoin or Gold becoming a problem? Just print more dollars and bid them down and or buy them out.

    The problem with stupid immoral unwavering unreasoning support for things is the same problem with endless printed money for things. Total disconnection from all real world and human considerations. Continual blocking everyone WITH real world and human considerations from doing their thing and holding up the world.

    Wake up … It’s a peace march/demonstration.
    Tens of thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters expected to gather in DC as Israel pounds Gaza
    Minnah Arshad and Dan MorrisonUSA TODAY


    oxy and cooch: Appreciate the conversation above (as above so below).

    The following is beautiful, and worth repeating. LOVE is the key to unlock the door. From oxy:

    “The alternative is to empty the mind, allow awareness of Timeless/Ceaseless Cause (GOD) to occur. Fear blocks the willingness toward silence of mind and true emptiness where we become filled vessels of Love’s presence. The mechanism to reduce fear is to look at the choice of alternatives. I choose distractions and suffer. The humility helps.”

    WISDOM comes/is learned through direct experience (Dr D’s point in his post above). Oxy is clearly doing “the work” which involves mindful awareness + a courageous Heart + action/engagement in the world. Distractions and suffering are his tools of choice; with awareness and humility, he uses them to dismantle/disable the egoistic state. With ever heightened awareness, practice, and repetition, he will eventually transcend the fear-based matrix – for more than a wrinkle in time.

    Brilliant. BRAVO oxy.

    The LOVE “matrix” is our HOME. Some of us are holding a VISION (a mustard seed within) for LIFE outside the fear-based matrix. War is over – if you want it…

    The VISION is a creative/active invocation/expression that aligns us with TRUTH, the essence of who/what we are: beings of light and LOVE. Open the door!

    You can develop/cultivate HOME by chopping wood or walking in the woods. Song always facilitates openings. I offer the following music + mantra for the moment. (I recently had the JOY of singing/chanting with Kavita and Dave).

    LOVE and gratitude Ilargi for making it possible to meet here.

    Dr. D

    JB — Yes, “Three World Wars”. We must not only use our fortunes to make as big a mess as possible, everywhere it’s possible, BUT we must ALSO prevent any cheap, reasonable, common-sense, universally-agreed solutions from happening. And therefore taking the emotional/economic pressure off.

    As we see Every. Day. Like U.S. rail service for example. Free money, better trains, cheaper freight, more people, saving the planet. No. Nay. Never. Congress, every CEO and the Military too will DIE on this hill.

    …Pull the other one. You are INTENTIONALLY d–king with us, TRYING to make things much worse than they have to be. Duh. I’m not a moron. So. Why?

    Problem > Solution. I need to to beg to be put in Gaza. BEG for it. I need you to tell US we must be your (non)benevolent masters forever. Then we stop screwing with things again, values go up again. Only after we own it all, and prices go up, and we’ll be very happy. Only then will we trot out our Mandarin ( ) an actor like Zelensky, and HE will be your object of pointless Big Brother worship, your new Messiah who magically fixes everything! …You know, like Obama. Then we can stop all the destruction we’re paying trillions to run and keep a nice little underground going, like Goldberg. Where like the FBI, Every. Single. Rebel and KKK guy is a paid agent who puts you on a list.

    Btw, you’re a comics guy, look into the missing footage of Iron Man 3, which gives a line on the real intent of the movie before they got involved like failing failures that fail and scrapped all the relevant, mirroring plot elements. …What is it, like every movie now I need to re-write just so I can stop thinking about it? Whoever does the rough outline (Favreau) is great and knows what they’re doing, everyone else is a jackass who wouldn’t know a plot if it hit them in the head. …Which it did. Favreau gave it to them.

    Ditto Garfield Spider-man, and half-dozen other films from them. The key plot elements are on all the cutting room floor. Example: Banner has an Epiphany with Hulk in “Endgame” as Hulk says he refuses to fight because he doesn’t want to die. Banner agrees. So they work it all out: the very HEIGHT of the entire story arc from day 1 back the the Bana Hulk. That’s why next time you see him, he’s “Professor Hulk” a reckless fun amalgam of their two personalities. Nope. Could not spare 30 whole seconds away from the CGI budget to spend on closing a 20-year story. There’s the same when in Avengers, he falls from space into the steel plant, he has an important discussion with the night watchman there. Nope, had to have 30 more seconds of pointless battle CGI, in defiance of Whedon who couldn’t override the moron producers with the heart and intelligence of Weinstein.

    Sometimes we don’t get to know, in which case I have to just make it up and fill their mindless robotic gaps just to satisfy myself. Boy great movie making when we the audience have to Fan-fic the whole movie just to make them tolerable enough not to be openly offensive. #Winning.

    Anyway, so we are IN a story, THEY are writing, which is as equally if not more false than any cartoon. …Because when you watch a cartoon on TV you don’t actually believe it is real.


    It appears/looks like that Israel is using D8 to level the ruble ahead of their advances in Gaza.
    (Gaza will not exist when they are finished.)


    The comics stuff is awesome to watch because it is fractally the exact same as every other thing going on.

    Did you see what happened to Daredevil? Lead showrunner is just trying to write a superhero show but the entire woke writer’s room and cast is saying that every single thing he wants to do is unacceptable, impossible. Why? White male. Hello – disabled? Blind? Nevertheless, blind white male – privilege, oppression, colonization, etc

    Showrunner literally gave up because it was impossible to write a superhero show about Daredevil in which Daredevil is the hero. This was non negotiable to the writers! He was getting into struggle sessions “educating” him every time he tried to write a superhero show. In which the superhero is a hero.

    The hilarious thing is Ghostbusters 2016 was… 2016. And it is a sane production compared to Snow White – BILLIONS of lost dollars later. Snow White, The Marvels, just a slew of hundreds of millions of dollar productions. When did Solo A Star Wars Story come out featuring Han Solo getting created by women, beaten up by women, and asking everyone what is going on while we have his pant stripes explained to us? And lost money. 2018. Amazon Lord of the Rings of Prime wasted a billion a couple years ago now? But endless hundreds of millions are pouring out of SOMEWHERE not only for missiles and tanks but neverending useless banality to this day?!?!?!

    And there’s billions more to buy up all the houses so no one can own a home, Billions more to subsidize housing for millions of illegal entrants in direct competition with the nation’s poor, pushing EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY upmarket as a consequence. We have billions from somewhere for all these things.

    When people think of the Nazis, they think of the awesome Hugo Boss uniforms, the futuristic-looking half-tracks, cool looking airplanes and wunderfaffen. Insane rocket planes, jets, ballistic missiles, giant tanks, levitating bells???

    They don’t realize the german war machine was people marching on foot, horse drawn artillery, horse drawn transport, horse-drawn logistics where it wasn’t rail. What Germans called their few Panzer Divisions were what Americans called – our entire normal army.

    People don’t realize how fucked up Germany was throughout the war. Weird complex feudal arrangements of bureaucracies messing up which gun goes on the tank or who gets winter uniforms or getting a new fighter or bomber instead of limping along with early 30’s designs forever while your opponents all mass-produce massive volumes of awesome new stuff. Gauleiters in charge of various weird arbitrary things – placed there because of their party membership not competency at their roles. “czars of” this and that appointed in a yarn-snarl pattern with the job of unsnarling all the pre-existing snarled yarn threads.

    One thinks of the Holocaust as somehow organized – train networks/logistics, camps, shower and oven facilities and all. Pictures of jet airplanes, hugo boss uniforms, and futuristic halftracks make your brain go a certain direction. But in actuality, nazis were blundering along from one idea to the next like total buffoons. The holocaust was awful, but the late 60’s movement styling it as mankind becoming mechanized and efficient, intellect separated from heart – “the machine” is the opposite of the truth. Tribal, ignorant, bumbling, incompetent, superstitious, disorganized, no real plan, going with the next platitude we think of in substitute FOR a plan. Yes for the war, but even what they were going to do about/to/etc the jewish population of europe. They had no actual PLAN but just fell into things as they thought of them INCLUDING their plans for the jews. Holy %#& now we have even MORE jews wtf are we gonna do now?!!? Duh, stop conquering new regions they live in idunno. Put the whole thing on the backburner until you’ve got a better handle on Götterdämmerung? Talk about banality of evil.

    The Krupp slave labor camps were WORSE than the government concentration camps. Hitler actually expressed concern, like “Hey Alfried Krupp – how are we going to get any useful work out of them for munitions manufacture if you keep doing this? Cut it out” When HITLER is saying “not cool bro” you have gone uh… what do you even call it? So then, with Germany being this efficient, robotic, super-obedient blob obedient to a single man – that MUST be what happened in Nazi germany, right? — he said “nah man, I’m gonna keep it going. No actually, I’ll make conditions even WORSE” No repercussions.

    The Allies found Alfried Krupp, the guy whose company labor camps were WORSE than the concentration camps, guilty of crimes against humanity – and then let him out of jail THREE years later. So that he could be a multi hundred-millionaire and turn into a billionaire. Officially, the last Krupp heir, Arndt, “gave up” everything to become a gay international playboy – but maybe that’s what you ostensibly see when a family graduates from visible-but-invulnerable to the higher unseen level?

    And thinking of seen/unseen, I’ve got to think, due to the fractal nature of things, that just like in Nazi germany, party members guaranteed to operate on party ideals (or at least fake it for advancement) get put in as gauleiters for military, industrial, cultural positions – the same ideological ideas get expressed in action. And while the inner workings of the Pentagon or Google might be kept hidden, the B-team is over in Hollywood operating quasi-openly. If the B-team was trained and selected same as the A team, you can kind of get a sense of things through them.

    Bad news: …

    Even more bad news:

    How so ? Americans and Israelis have been on a global murdering and stealing spree at least since the end of WW 2.

    Are you cool with that ? Like whats on netflix tonight la la la….

    The sooner the Regimes are kneecapped and taken down- the better for the entire world.
    Americans and Zionists holding hands skipping through fields of flowers together will continue murdering and stealing until they are stopped. It’s own citizens will not reel its Regimes in. They are actually doing the murdering and stealing too !

    If the Zionists and Americans continue to escalate – which of course they will- they will justifyibly be destroyed. Thats great news ! Not for dumbfuck Americans in denial, but tough shit.

    “We the People….” are allowing this to continue and escalate.

    Mission Accomplished from Bush to Biden ! Yay !


    You do remember it was only last year that your regimes were calling you a threat, wanting to lock you up and down- for not getting vaxxd ? Same scum Regimes sending billions of dollars for wars murder and theft around the planet.

    Americans are mind blowingly retarded for being so complicit and forgetful. THAT is the bad news.


    War is over – if you want it…

    I’m sure the citizens of Gaza will want to sing along with you and poof, magically stop the bombing and shellings? Whats the death toll today ? Another 1000 ? I guess they just don’t want it enough in their hearts to make it stop ? Entitled American denial and delusion at it’s finest…just another cult member.

    Got Mit Uns- “God is with Us” was the belief on every German belt buckle… different cult.

    Believe harder while reality dictates otherwise. la la la

    Some of the books that I will be reading over the winter

    Thanks for the suggestions


    Even a jew like Kunstler knows they’ve gone too far. They always do, can’t help themselves. You dont get kicked out of 109 countries for no reason. Parasites, destroying from within.


    Disney is just an arm of the Ministry of Propaganda.

    It does not have to turn a profit, or if it accidentally does, it just doesn’t need as much black op funding so it’s media maggot handlers in DC can skim some more cake and cream off the government tit.

    Disney turning out woke shit and losing billions means nothing.

    Disney perverting and undermining traditional family cohesion is the goal.

    Stop whining about Disney comrades, they are building the Workers Paradise here on Earth.



    Following on from Kunstler, Denninger is now expressing that America has a Jew problem. Looks like the days of pretending that the Jews are not a problem is over, looks like the USA is very slowly waking up to some of their issues. Of course, it is all presented as the Jews trying to fix America, which is bullshit, it is the Jews trying to make America the best place for Jews to live; a small group like the Jews can thrive when all small groups are actively proteted from the big white group, claiming victimhood whenever the big white group does something they don’t like. It is entirely selfish and the big white group is one of the casualties.

    My favourite sentence in the Denninger piece is “You can’t attack him for anti-Semitism — he’s Jewish!”, which tells you the first problem that struck Denninger, would he be perceived as anti-semitic. That is one of the big issues the Americans need to fix, not being afraid to call a spade a spade. Zappa would encourage you to stop policing your minds.


    That Denninger link should have been this …

    I believe most people just want to live, work and enjoy their lives.

    I also believe that it is the government that interfers the most
    with people attempting to enjoy their lives.

    There is something wrong with that.

    Freedom without interference from government comes to mind

    Michael Reid

    It is ironic that while we are busy spending trillions on wars in foreign lands,
    our own infrastructure is crumbling.

    Hospitals, roads, schools, and bridges all need urgent repairs,
    but our government seems to be more interested in funding Israel’s aggression.

    The US government needs to prioritize the needs of its own citizens
    before sending billions of dollars overseas.

    The Jews are not the problem.

    Those running the governments are the problem.

    Exterminate those running the governments to solve the problem whatever they are.

    I’ve got good news and bad news. Which one do you want first?

    Alright, good news first. The good news is that there is so much bad news. That’s what happens when truth comes out. Most of it is truthful revelations about bad stuff, and it is just so BAD that it can make you feel like everything is bad..

    It’s when bad things are reported as good news that you better find a place to hide, and I think you know why.

    And the bad news? Oh, that. Well, the bad news is that there is a lot more truthful news on the way. We’re just getting started.

    I hope this has clarified the news for everybody.
