“The President is not above the law. But under our system of separated powers, the President may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers..”

US Supreme Court Rules Trump Has Presidential Immunity (RT)

American presidents have “absolute immunity” for their official actions, the US Supreme Court ruled on Monday, addressing a series of charges against former President Donald Trump. Federal prosecutors have charged Trump with four criminal counts related to the 2020 presidential election, alleging that he “conspired” to overturn the results by spreading “knowingly false claims” of fraud to obstruct the collection, counting, and certification of the results. “Under our constitutional structure of separated powers, the nature of Presidential power entitles a former President to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for actions within his conclusive and preclusive constitutional authority,” the court said in a 6-3 decision. “And he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts. There is no immunity for unofficial acts.” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, which saw the six conservative-leaning justices opposed by the three liberal ones.

The decision favors the former president in terms of his tweets to the American public on January 6 and conversations with then-Vice President Mike Pence about his presiding over the certification of election results, as both of those clearly fell within the scope of official duties. However, the verdict allows lower courts to hold evidentiary hearings to determine which actions by Trump may have been unofficial, such as when he contacted state and local election officials about the 2020 vote. “In dividing official from unofficial conduct, courts may not inquire into the President’s motives,” the court warned. “The President is not above the law. But under our system of separated powers, the President may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for his official acts,” said the ruling.

The Supreme Court saved the immunity case for the last day of its term. The long-awaited decision puts a dent in the plans for special counsel Jack Smith to prosecute Trump in the federal court in Washington, DC before the November election. Trump challenged the 2020 election – marked by a series of unusual procedures, ostensibly adopted due to the Covid-19 pandemic – as irregular and possibly tainted by fraud, pointing to delays in counting mail-in votes that suddenly went in Democrat Joe Biden’s favor after the polls closed in a handful of states. Democrats have insisted that the election was the most secure and legitimate ever and that any questioning of the result is an attack on democracy.

“.. ‘all but ensures’ that a trial won’t happen in Trump’s classified documents case before the November election..”

Trump Says Immunity Ruling ‘Big Win For Democracy’ (ZH)

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in a 6-3 vote that former presidents, including Trump, enjoy immunity from criminal prosecution for conduct involving official acts during tenure in office, but he’s not immune from unofficial acts. As Bloomberg notes, the decision – which kicks the ball back to the lower court – ‘all but ensures’ that a trial won’t happen in Trump’s classified documents case before the November election.The justices, voting 6-3 along ideological lines, said a federal appeals court was too categorical in rejecting Trump’s immunity arguments, ruling for the first time that former presidents are shielded from prosecution for some official acts taken while in office. The majority ordered the lower courts to revisit the case to decide the extent of the allegations that are off limits to prosecution.

“Just as former presidents have immunity from civil liability for official acts, they have immunity from criminal prosecution unless they are impeached and removed from office for the crime alleged. This decision is supported by the writings of the framers of the Constitution, the text of the Constitution and Supreme Court precedent,” wrote X user Martin Harry. As constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley notes, now “the issue is whether what constitutes official acts,” adding that the ruling will “further delay the lower court proceedings, but Trump will have to argue that his actions fall within these navigational beacons.” “The lower court judge has been highly favorable for Jack Smith in the past. Yet the court is arguing that there is a presumption of immunity for their official acts beyond the absolute immunity on core constitutional powers.” Meanwhile, Justice Thomas called into question the legality of Smith’s office:

In a blistering dissent, Justice Sotomayor writes that the ruling “makes a mockery of the principle, foundational to our constitution and system of government, that no man is above the law.” “Relying on little more than its own misguided wisdom… the court gives former President trump all the immunity he asked for and more.” Special counsel Jack Smith is leading two federal probes against Trump, both of which led to criminal charges. In Washington, Trump has been targeted over alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election, while a Florida case revolves around the mishandling of classified documents – for which Trump has claimed presidential immunity. In response to the ruling, Trump said on Truth Social that it was a “”BIG WIN FOR OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEMOCRACY.”

No president should attack the Supreme Court.

Biden Reacts To Trump Immunity Ruling (RT)

US President Joe Biden has attacked the Supreme Court, urging citizens to “dissent” against its ruling that American presidents have “absolute immunity” for their official actions. In a 6-3 decision on Monday, the highest US court ruled that under “our system of separated powers, the President may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled to at least presumptive immunity from prosecution for his official acts.” Biden criticized the decision in a brief statement, calling it “a fundamentally new principle” and a “dangerous precedent because the power of the office will no longer be constrained by the law.”

“There are no kings in America. Each, each of us is equal before the law. No one, no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States,” Biden claimed – even as the Supreme Court ruling specifically stated that “the President is not above the law” and that “there is no immunity for unofficial acts.” Federal prosecutors have charged former President Donald Trump with four criminal counts related to the 2020 presidential election, alleging that he “conspired” to overturn the results. The Supreme Court verdict allows lower courts to hold evidentiary hearings to determine which actions by Trump may have been unofficial. Trump called the ruling – which puts a dent in the Democrats’ plans to prosecute him in the federal court in Washington, DC before the November election – a “big win for our constitution and democracy.”

Biden warned Americans about a possible presidential return for Trump, saying that “people must decide if they want to entrust … the presidency to Donald Trump, now knowing that he’ll be even more emboldened to do whatever he pleases whenever he wants to do it.” Biden went on to quote Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent, in which she wrote: “In every use of official power, the president is now a king above the law. With fear for our democracy, I dissent.” “So should the American people dissent, I dissent,” Biden added, concluding his prepared remarks and taking no questions from the press.

Biden ‘United Democrats And Republicans’ With Debate Performance – Musk (RT)

US President Joe Biden has united Democrats and Republicans in a common recognition of his cognitive decline, following a debate with Donald Trump last week, businessman Elon Musk has argued. The billionaire, who is a vocal critic of some Biden administration policies, such as on border security, supported an assessment made on Sunday by vlogger Farzad Mesbahi on X (formerly Twitter). The Spanish-born YouTuber and self-proclaimed troll said: “America seeing Biden’s cognitive decline at the debate feels like one of the most uniting things this country has experienced in a long, long time.” “True, first time I’ve seen Republicans & Democrats agree on something in a long time,” Musk responded, adding an emoji of a face with tears of joy. The entrepreneur also weighed in immediately following the debate after former 2024 GOP hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy said that Biden’s presentation made him wonder who runs the US government. Musk replied: “Maybe nobody.”

This election cycle’s first faceoff between Trump and Biden took place last Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia. Political observers have widely agreed that the incumbent failed to counter the perception that he has neither the energy nor mental acuity to lead the country for four more years. Some Democrats, either publicly or in private communications with journalists, have said Biden should stop his campaign after his dismal performance. By contrast, former President Barack Obama maintained his support for Biden’s bid despite the flop, posting on Friday: “bad debate nights happen” and that “last night didn’t change,” the stakes in the November election. Former President Bill Clinton echoed that sentiment, stating that he will relegate “the debate rating to the pundits.” The US president’s family, who reportedly are among the few who could convince him to quit, urged him to stay in the race during a meeting on Sunday, CNN sources have claimed.

“Carlson also claimed that relations between Obama and Biden – who served as vice president between 2009 and 2017 – have never been warm, and were at times even “hostile.”

Obama Telling People Biden Can’t Win – Tucker Carlson (RT)

Former US President Barack Obama is telling Democrats that incumbent Joe Biden has no chance of being reelected after his recent debate against GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, American conservative journalist Tucker Carlson has claimed. According to Carlson, Obama’s recent public endorsement of Biden was not sincere. Biden and Trump faced off in an open debate on Thursday night, with the president’s performance widely seen as “incoherent” and “fumbling,” underscoring concerns about his age. Following the showdown, many Democrats and their donors reportedly scrambled to find a replacement for Biden as the party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Publicly, however, many Democratic heavyweights, including Obama, reaffirmed their support for Biden. While admitting that “bad debate nights happen,” the former president insisted that “this election is still a choice between someone who has fought for ordinary folks his entire life and someone who only cares about himself.”

Writing on X (formerly Twitter) on Monday, Carlson said, citing an “unusually good source,” that Obama’s post had been “disingenuous.” “In private, Obama is telling people Biden can’t win, and he is therefore in favor of an open convention,” the journalist claimed. He added Obama is not saying whom he supports, but recently met with Biden in person to deliver the message. Carlson also claimed that relations between Obama and Biden – who served as vice president between 2009 and 2017 – have never been warm, and were at times even “hostile.” According to the journalist, those ties “recently… deteriorated further,” mostly due to First Lady Jill Biden, who allegedly “kept her husband cloistered away from anyone who might convince him to drop out” of the race for the White House after the disastrous debate.

Carlson added that Biden’s wife remains “the driving force behind her husband’s reelection campaign,” echoing a recent NBC report naming her as the only person who could convince the president to “change course.” However, CNN reported on Monday that Biden’s family, including Jill, had urged him not to end his campaign, blaming his poor performance on his team. While the Biden-Obama relationship has often been described as a “bromance” to the point of becoming meme material, numerous media reports indicated that things have been much more complicated. An Axios report in March suggested that Biden “often measures himself” against his predecessor, with a rivalry dynamic present in their relations. According to Politico, Obama also shared serious concerns about Biden’s ability to win the 2020 election.

“..not telling Biden which camera would be on him as he blankly stared a thousand miles into space with his mouth agape..”

Biden’s Family Urges Him To Fight On (ZH)

At a Camp David gathering on Sunday, President Biden’s extended family urged him to ignore the growing number of voices asking him to quit the race — and many of his loved ones blamed his disastrous debate on his advisors. According to Politico, the two who most forcefully encouraged the 81-year-old Biden to continue were his wife Jill and his son Hunter — the two people whose opinion he reportedly values most. The reports will strengthen a growing sense that Jill Biden is putting her own interests above that of her humiliated and failing husband. As one Democratic advisor told the New York Post over the weekend, “Jill Biden likes being First Lady…she doesn’t want to give that up.”

Meanwhile, Hunter, who doesn’t exactly have strong reputation for sound judgment, is said to long for Americans to see a version of his father that — as paraphrased by the Times — is “scrappy and in command of the facts.” Much as he once was in denial about his drug problem, Hunter now seems incapable of admitting that that version of his father is gone forever: Biden family members are said to have blamed the debate debacle on three advisors: Anita Dunn, her husband Bob Bauer — who played the role of Trump in practice sessions — and Biden’s former chief of staff Ron Klain, who was in charge of the debate training. Aides to Biden denied these reports from multiple outlets.

With Biden having spent a full week at Camp David gearing up for the debate, his family members and others are claiming the team worked the 81-year-old too hard, and tried to pack him full of too many statistics. They even fault advisors for a debate-night makeup job that transformed his summer-tanned face to one that was pale and unhealthy-looking. Relatives also blamed debate-host CNN for not “fact-checking” Donald Trump and not telling Biden which camera would be on him as he blankly stared a thousand miles into space with his mouth agape.

“Democrats had already planned to nominate Biden, 81, before the convention in order to ensure he appears on the ballot in Ohio..”

DNC Weighs Early Nomination For Biden To Quash Internal Party Dissent (ZH)

Bloomberg reports that the Democratic National Committee is considering formally nominating Joe Biden as early as mid-July to ensure that the president is on November ballots, while helping to stamp out intra-party chatter of replacing him after last week’s poor debate performance. Democrats had already planned to nominate Biden, 81, before the convention in order to ensure he appears on the ballot in Ohio, which had an Aug. 7 deadline for candidates to be certified. A potential date for Biden’s nomination is July 21, when the Democratic convention’s credentials committee meets virtually, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.nThe panel is meeting to finalize procedures before the party’s convention in Chicago starts on Aug. 19.

Interestingly, former President Trump’s sentencing hearing is set for July 11th, so he may well be in prison by then given the amount of pressure we assume is being placed on Judge Merchan’s shoulders to “lock him up”. Additionally, July 21 is just three days after Trump is scheduled to accept his party’s nomination at the Republican convention in Milwaukee. The desperate attempted message from all this narrative-shaping is simple – …nothing to see here, move along. Except we all saw the fireworks factory exploding with our own eyes. [..] At a Camp David gathering on Sunday, President Biden’s extended family urged him to ignore the growing number of voices asking him to quit the race — and many of his loved ones blamed his disastrous debate on his advisors. According to Politico, the two who most forcefully encouraged the 81-year-old Biden to continue were his wife Jill and his son Hunter — the two people whose opinion he reportedly values most.

They even fault advisors for a debate-night makeup job that transformed his summer-tanned face to one that was pale and unhealthy-looking. Relatives also blamed debate-host CNN for not “fact-checking” Donald Trump and not telling Biden which camera would be on him as he blankly stared a thousand miles into space with his mouth agape. John Morgan, a top donor and friend of Biden’s brother Frank, was not at the family meeting, but joined the delusional pile-up on Biden’s advisers, telling the Times that the week-long debate prep — which involved rehearsals at various times of the day — was excessive: “It would be like if you took a prizefighter who was going to have a title fight and put him in a sauna for 15 hours then said, ‘Go fight.’ I believe that the debate is solely on Ron Klain, Bob Bauer and Anita Dunn.”

Unlike his family, the president is said to still hold confidence in the trio. Klain assured the Times that Biden will see the race through, saying, “He is the choice of the Democratic voters…We had a bad debate night. But you win campaigns by fighting — not quitting — in the face of adversity.” Of course, Biden is “the choice of Democratic voters” largely because the Democratic National Committee made sure he was the only choice available. A post-debate CBS News poll found that just 54% of registered Democrats think Biden should be in the race. The poll found 41% of Democrats think Biden lacks has the requisite mental and cognitive health. More importantly, 72% of all voters give him a failing grade on mental health. The family gathering at Camp David was reportedly scheduled before the debate, with the expectation that it would be a celebration of his performance and an opportunity for the extended Biden family — including his children and grandchildren — to be photographed by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.

“The Bidens flew off to the Hamptons Saturday to milk the showbiz cows and hedge-funders for a campaign that might not still exist..”

Surprise, Surprise! (Kunstler)

Since his hiding-in-the-basement campaign in 2020 “Joe Biden’s” Party of Chaos has pretended that he is fit and alert for the job and now all of sudden they pretend to be shocked to see how far gone in the head he really is. The bullshit shovelers of the mainstream news media were especially rocked, not by the truth of the situation per se, but at being unmasked as the contemptible, confabulating tools that they’ve become. The New York Times wheeled around on a dime from their servile lionizing of the presidential hologram they helped create to its editorial board abjectly yelling for him to drop out and get gone. They were joined instantly by a long list of other opinion-shapers, campaign donors, political celebs, and Beltway players.

Right after the debate, First lady Dr. Jill led a cheerleading session before a roomful of partisans that went beyond cringeworthy into uncharted territory of mortification. (“You were great, Joe! You answered all the questions!”). By the time the entourage moved to a pre-planned event at a nearby Atlanta Waffle House, “JB” had gone full-on zombie. If all that was intended to be reassuring, the effect was the opposite. Someone handed the blank-faced old grifter a milkshake and they beat it out of there. The Bidens flew off to the Hamptons Saturday to milk the showbiz cows and hedge-funders for a campaign that might not still exist. “Everyone paid in advance. . .so it could be an opportunity to encourage him to drop out,” an invited guest told a New York Post reporter. “I wanted to go and see the train wreck,” another donor said. “I’d rather choose someone from a phone book than have Biden.”

That was generally the tone among the woke-gay-communist echelons all over the land — surprisingly vehement, considering that just forty-eight hours before they were all in on re-election. Some could probably see their lucrative hustles whirling around the drain, and others might fret about just how far and wide prosecutions under a Trump Attorney General might loom. “JB” and his family circle attempted to regroup over the weekend at Camp David where first son, Hunter (“the smartest man I know,” the president often says), led the buoying-up session, perhaps mindful of the many bank accounts set up by his lawyers in the name of Biden family members (including little grandchildren) for receipt of influence-peddling revenue gathered sedulously from entities abroad during “Joe Biden’s” post-veep high-earning years. The family emerged from that meet-up triumphantly, ready to forget the one bad evening and jump back into the election game.

“Smith has long tended to push the law to the breaking point to bag defendants..”

Too Clever By Half (Turley)

The Supreme Court’s decision in Fischer v. United States rejecting the use of obstruction of legal proceedings against January 6th defendants will potentially impact hundreds of cases. For some, it may lead to dismissals or, in the cases with multiple charges, resentencings. One of those cases that will be impacted is the pending prosecution of former president Donald Trump who is facing four charges, including two obstruction counts. However, it is not clear if Special Counsel Jack Smith will yield to the decision or possibly take the dubious path laid out by Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson in her concurrence. Smith has long tended to push the law to the breaking point to bag defendants. That was the case when his conviction of former Virginia Governor Robert F. McDonnell was unanimously reversed as overextending another law.

It is doubtful that he will go quietly into the night after the Fischer decision. In most cases, a prosecutor would go back and secure a superseding indictment in light of the loss of the obstruction claims. Those claims were central to the narrative of the government under the current indictment. That is not Smith’s style. He may decide to push even harder for a trial before the election on the remaining counts. Smith has made the trial before the election an overriding priority throughout his appointment. He also has a very favorable and motivated judge in United States District Judge Tanya Chutkan. He could also take a not-so-subtle hint from Jackson in her concurrence. Jackson supported the majority in finding that the obstruction provision, Section 1512(c), was enacted after the Enron case to address the destruction of documents and records.

Section 1512(c)(1) prohibits corruptly obstructing an official proceeding by altering, destroying, mutilating, or concealing a record, document, or other object with the intent to impair the object’s integrity or availability for use in an official proceeding. However, a second provision under subsection (c)(2) allowed for charges that would “otherwise” obstruct, influence, or impede an official proceeding. The Court held that the obstruction cases under Section 1512(c)(2) must be tied to impairing the integrity or availability of evidence. However, in a single justice concurrence, she added a way that Smith and other prosecutors might still be able to shoehorn January 6th into a Section 1512 offense:

“That official proceeding [Congress’s certification of the Electoral College vote] plainly used certain records, documents, or objects—including, among others, those relating to the electoral votes themselves. See Tr. of Oral Arg. 65–67. And it might well be that Fischer’s conduct, as alleged here, involved the impairment (or the attempted impairment) of the availability or integrity of things used during the January 6 proceeding “in ways other than those specified in (c)(1).” Ante, at 8. If so, then Fischer’s prosecution under §1512(c)(2) can, and should, proceed. That issue remains available for the lower courts to determine on remand.” Notably, no other justice joined Jackson in the concurrence. However, Smith and Chutkan could reason that it was not expressly rejected and presumably, the three justices in dissent would support the broader reading since they were willing to sign off on the ultimate extension of the obstruction of justice statute. That includes Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

However, that still leaves less than a majority and an application that runs against the grain of the opinion. Just saying that a proceeding involves “certain records” is transparently artificial and forced. Even the submission of an alternative slate of electors is not the destruction of electors certified by the secretaries of state. The federal law allows for challenges in Congress, which Democrats previously utilized without claims of insurrections or attacks on democracy. J6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), voted to challenge the certification of the 2004 results of President George W. Bush’s reelection; committee member Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) sought to challenge Trump’s certification in 2016. Both did so under the very law that Trump’s congressional supporters used in 2020. And Pelosi and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) praised the challenge organized by then-Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) in 2004.

Those challenges under the same loose theory could have been viewed as attempting to negate or destroy certifications from the states. It would likely, in my view, result in another reversal. It is, in my view, too clever by half. That may not concern Smith who may still want to use the obstruction counts to increase the likelihood of convictions on the other counts. In such a circumstance, the overturning of the two obstruction convictions might still leave the conviction for conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy against the rights of citizens. We will see in the coming weeks, but Smith is likely waiting for the other shoe to drop in the Trump immunity case. That could add additional complications if the case is remanded by the Court for further proceedings. There is little time for a trial before November if the district court must hold hearings on claims that statements or actions were taken by Trump as part of his office.

“If Putin does not immediately use sufficient force to terminate the conflict, World War Three seems certain..”

The Resurrection of French Nationalism? (Paul Craig Roberts)

France was the last European nation to lose its sovereignty, and France might be the first to recover its sovereignty. In the 1960s France was still a nation of ethnic French as contrasted with the tower of babel and a geographical entity that it is today. During the ten-year presidency of Charles De Gaulle (1959-69) France’s policy was one of national independence. DeGaulle refused to join NATO, and he opposed a supranational Europe in which nations would subordinate themselves to a European Union.French independence could be on the point of return judging from the success of Marine Le Pen’s party yesterday in the current French elections. Her nationalist party has in the first round of the parliamentary elections taken 34% of the votes with President Macron’s centrist coalition receiving only 21% support. If the second round produces similar results, a restoration of French independence is possible.

For many years European governments have worked consistently to overwhelm their ethnic populations with third world immigrant-invaders. It has reached the point where ethnic European women raped by immigrant-invaders fear to report the crime as it can result in a charge of racism or worse against the victim. For example, in response to a gang-rape of an ethnic German female, a 20-year old ethnic German female citizen called one of the gang rapists a “disgraceful rapist pig.” The German citizen was sentenced to jail for defaming an immigrant-invader, a protected species under German law, while the rapist was given a suspended sentence and served no jail time. For many years the European working class has experienced their living standards reduced in the name of economy. Not long ago the French were protesting the rise in the retirement age, which forces them to work longer for their pension.

The French have noticed that economy measures only apply to their living standards and not to the vast sums that Macron pours into the West’s war against Russia in Ukraine. Now all of Europe hears continually that they must prepare, and cough up money for, war with Russia. The French don’t want war with Russia. Nor do the Germans, or the Italians. Only “their” governments do, and war is what Washington’s puppets have put on the agenda. Europeans don’t want the high energy cost and lost profit and employment opportunities imposed on them by Washington’s “Russian sanctions.” It seems to Europeans that the purpose of Washington’s sanctions is to make Europe more dependent on Washington, essentially reducing them to serfs. Finally, after suffering decades of abuse, insult, and total disregard by their leaders, Europeans protested in the recent European Union parliamentary elections. The ruling parties were repudiated across the board.

The Belgian prime minister had to resign. The French president had to call national elections. I wrote that if the repudiation carries over into the national elections, we could see the unravelling of NATO, the European Union, and a return of sovereign European nations. World War II gave control of Europe to the US instead of to Germany. The Soviet collapse gave Washington control over the Warsaw Pact, placing NATO on Russia’s border. Washington’s policy was to de-Germanize Germany and to destroy a national awareness. Washington controlled German education and indoctrinated Germans that nationalism was racist, produced Hitler and the Holocaust. Legislation was passed essentially criminalizing a positive attitude toward German nationalism. It meant that you were a Nazi. It still does. It is unclear if a German state can ever be resurrected.

Rid of the Germans, Washington turned its efforts on France. De Gaulle’s departure weakened France. It took time, but eventually Washington controlled who the French president would be. With France, Germany, and the British in Washington’s pocket, the rest of Europe went along. Today European nations that shared the rule of the world are puppets of a criminal regime in Washington. The notion that there is any military power in these puppet states is laughable. The self-confidence that made the British the ruler of the world has long departed. It was destroyed at Oxford and Cambridge. No Western country has a positive opinion of itself. All are being keyed for war with Russia, China, Iran, while they themselves are being overrun by immigrant-invaders who are paid tribute for their support and permitted to rape European women as a form of restitution.

The Kremlin does not understand the hollowed out, empty, West where there is no support for any government. Western peoples are brainwashed into impotence and cannot even protect their constitutional rights. Why would anyone fight for these governments, and if forced, with what spirit? Putin sits there in his legalistic way accepting insult after insult, provocation after provocation, as his way of avoiding war with the West. It is not only Western provocations that are widening the Ukraine conflict into World War III. Putin has permitted the conflict to go on and on and on, and this has enabled Washington to get more and more and more involved, thus widening the conflict. If Putin does not immediately use sufficient force to terminate the conflict, World War Three seems certain. There is hope that if Le Pen wins France and does not sell out to Washington, the unravelling of NATO and resurrection of European independence will begin. But this can be a slow process, while the developments in Ukraine toward wider war are accelerating. The time is rapidly ending during which Putin can use sufficient force to end the conflict before it results in World War Three.

“The West has ‘lost’ Russia much more profoundly than is understood..”

The West – Indubitably – Has Lost Russia, And Is Losing Eurasia Too (Crooke)

There perhaps was a momentary shrugging-off of slumber in Washington this week as they read the account of Sergei Lavrov’s démarche to the U.S. Ambassador in Moscow: Russia was telling the U.S. – “We are no longer at peace”! Not just ‘no longer at peace’, Russia was holding the U.S. responsible for the ‘cluster strike’ on a Crimean beach on last Sunday’s Pentecost holiday, killing several (including children) and injuring many more. The U.S. thereby “became party” to the proxy war in Ukraine (it was an American-supplied ATACM; programmed by American specialists; and drawing on U.S. data), Russia’s statement read; “Retaliatory measures will certainly follow”. Evidently, somewhere an amber light flashed hues of pink and red. The Pentagon grasped that something had happened – ‘No going around it; This could escalate badly’. The U.S. Defence Secretary (after a pause since March 2023) reached for the phone to call his Russian counterpart: ‘The U.S. regretted civilian deaths; the Ukrainians had full targeting discretion’.

The Russian public however, is plain furious. The diplomatic argot of ‘there now being a state of betweenness; not war and not peace’ is but the ‘half of it’. The West has ‘lost’ Russia much more profoundly than is understood. President Putin – in his statement to the Foreign Ministry Board in wake of the G7 sword-rattling – detailed just how we had arrived at this pivotal juncture (of inevitable escalation). Putin indicated that the gravity of the situation demanded a ‘last chance’ offer to the West, one that Putin emphatically said was to be “No temporary ceasefire for Kiev to prepare a new offensive; nor a freezing the conflict – but rather, needed to be about the war’s final completion”. It has been widely understood that the only credible way to end the Ukraine war would be a ‘peace’ agreement emerging through negotiation between Russia and the U.S. This however is rooted in a familiar U.S.-centric vision – ‘Waiting on Washington …’.

Lavrov archly commented (in paraphrase) that if anyone imagines we are ‘waiting for Godot’, and ‘will run for it’, they are mistaken. Moscow has something much more radical in mind – something that will shock the West. Moscow (and China) are not simply waiting upon the whims of the West, but plan to invert completely the security architecture paradigm: To create an ‘Alt’ architecture for the ‘vast space’ of Eurasia, no less. It is intended to exit the existing bloc zero-sum confrontation. A new confrontation is not envisaged; however the new architecture nevertheless is intended to force ‘external actors’ to curtail their hegemony across the continent. In his Foreign Ministry address, Putin explicitly looked ahead to the collapse of the Euro-Atlantic security system and to a new architecture emerging: “The world will never be the same again”, he said.

What did he mean? Yuri Ushakov, Putin’s principal Foreign Policy adviser (at the Primakov Readings Forum), clarified Putin’s ‘sparse’ allusion: Ushakov reportedly said that Russia increasingly has come to the view there is not going to be any long-term re-shaping of the security system in Europe. And without any major re-shaping, there will be no ‘final completion’ (Putin’s words) to the conflict in Ukraine. Ushakov explained that this unified and indivisible security system in Eurasia must replace the Euro-Atlantic and Euro-centric models that are now receding into oblivion. “This speech [of Putin at the Russian Foreign Ministry], I would say, sets the vector of further activities of our country at the international stage, including the building of a single and indivisible security system in Eurasia,” Ushakov said.

“.. the United States has massively over-extended itself and damaged its own reliability as a global trade partner.”

‘Unipolar US Dollar’ Mutated Into ‘Politically Weaponized’ Tool (Sp.)

“In essence, the more the United States prints and spends USD, the more the rest of the world is expected to invest in US government paper, and subsidize this debt-spending. The BRICS nations and their adherents are advocating for the use of national currencies for cross-border trade, eventually de-linking from the increasingly unipolar and visibly unreliable US Dollar,” Goncharoff explained. Furthermore, analysts at the Russia’s Pivot to Asia website wrote that two “main global financial evolutionary events” are unfolding right now. These involve changes to the role of the US dollar, and “technology and the digitization of financial transactions.” America has itself to blame for the loss of the greenback’s credibility as a global currency, mainly due to the mind-boggling US-dollar issued debt – a whopping $32.72 trillion.

“It has created a scenario where foreign governments are increasingly wary of investing in additional US dollar debt until a management system is put in place that will be able to support such a load,” Goncharoff noted. He forecasts that the US dollar “will become prone to increasing shocks, leading to uncertainty and mistrust on the global financial markets.” If the US were to default on its debt, American bondholders would carry losses on their investments, and the negative impacts on global trade would be huge, he warned. He underscored that the US treasury norm of printing of more dollars to cover up the fiscal debt “debases the actual value of the currency and encourages inflation.”

While Moscow has effectively “inoculated” itself from looming future problems with the US economy, other countries, like China, are doing the same. The trade focus is shifting away from the United States, fueling a geopolitical evolution of trade blocs like BRICS, the Eurasian Economic Union and Shanghai Cooperation Organization, with some like BRICS discussing alternative currency platforms. “One proposal for a unified BRICS trade unit is the “BRICS Bridge” allowing the ten current members to exchange units based 60% of their sovereign currencies and 40% backed by their gold reserves,” noted Goncharoff, and summed up:. “For Russia, and most other nations, there is a far bigger picture – where non-US dominated, global trade opportunities beckon.” Furthermore, the US has used the dollar as a trade and geopolitical weapon, said the pundit, seeking to abuse economies of Venezuela, Iran, Turkey and Russia amongst others.

“It has done this in two main areas, firstly by manipulating the US dollar currency exchange rates in order to damage other national currencies when the US wants to inflict fiscal punishments or seek trade advantages,” remarked the analyst, adding that Washington “has also used the global SWIFT payment network as a switch to turn US dollar trade on and off according to its policies.” “Other governments are becoming concerned that these punishments could in future be meted out to them, which also creates mistrust and fear of US dollar over-exposure. Any one of these problems are serious. It appears ultimately unlikely the United States will be able to fend off the repercussions of them all. In short – the United States has massively over-extended itself and damaged its own reliability as a global trade partner.”

“The children here have not gone to school for a year, and we are under rocket fire day and night. It is a very strange situation.”

Charles Nenner Warns “Very Hard Times Are Coming” (USAW)

This week, Nenner’s war cycle “turned straight up” and his economic cycle “turned straight down.” The next big conflict is not going to be in Ukraine or Taiwan–just yet. On Saturday, this headline: “Iran Threatens Israel With ‘Obliterating War’ If It Attacks Lebanon.” Nenner says all hell is about to break loose. Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iran and Turkey are key players in an escalating war with Israel. Nenner, who lives on the border with Lebanon in Northern Israel, interviewed with USAW just after a barrage of 100 rockets hit near his location. Nenner reports, “The children here have not gone to school for a year, and we are under rocket fire day and night. It is a very strange situation. What I don’t understand is the Arab resistance, led by Iran, did not see what happened in Gaza. If this really goes, Lebanon is going to disappear from the map…

How do I know these things? I know these things because I work with several governments in the world… In the 1960’s, there was a war, and half of Cypress ended up Turkish and half of Cypress is Greek. Turkey never accepted that. . . . Israel is using airfields in Cypress. . . . If this really gets going, Turkey is going to take over Cypress because they support Hamas (and Hezbollah). Turkey will invade Cypress, and this will lead to a war between Greece and Turkey. Of course, Iran is going to be involved also. Big boats are heading to Israel, so America is going to be involved. Russia has its ideas too… I don’t think Americans have any clue what is going on there, and they have no background. They are only busy with trying to win the Election, and it’s going to lead to catastrophe. If there is a war, Turkey is going to be involved, Cypress is going to be involved, NATO is going to be involved, and it is going to be much more serious than people think.”

Nenner says, “We are already in the next big war cycle.” Nenner still thinks China is going to be a big problem and says, “I would say if the world is busy with all this nonsense, then this is a time for China to take Taiwan over. The war cycle is extra up, so we have to be very careful. A lot of my wealthy clients are busy trying to get visas . . . to Caribbean islands. I know many wealthy people busy trying to get visas and trying to get out of America. This is what is going on below the surface, and most small investors don’t know what is going on… They are worried about a nuke strike or terrorists blowing stuff up left and right because they came through the border. This is a very dangerous situation. They are not leaving right now, but they are preparing now… The war cycle has turned up, and it is going to be extra dangerous from the 3rd of July on.”

Nenner says his big clients are also leaving the cities and buying houses in rural locations. Nenner told me this is a trend that has been going on for about 5 years, but it has picked up speed in the last year and a half. Nenner says his economic cycles have turned straight down. In NYC, Nenner points out, “I have very wealthy clients that just got out of commercial real estate with a 67% loss. I also know the banks, they are holding all these bad loans.” “The banks have US bonds coming to maturity that they have lost a fortune on. So, the banks, especially the regional banks, are going to be in big trouble… The regional banks are very weak. A lot is burning below the surface, which nobody tells you about.” Nenner still likes gold, but it’s going to consolidate here. Inflation is getting ready to take off again, and Nenner says, “Layoffs are coming soon. . . . Very hard times are coming.”

    It could flip=flop but it presently looks like the Satanic Cabal will keep Presidementia Poop-pants in place.

    Maybe Dr Jill asked for to much grift.

    On the other hand the reason is probably that the Giant Pot of Money Pedo Jo-jo’s campaign extorted can not be transferred to any other campaign, it must by law be returned to donors for a canceled campaign by that candidate.

    The spin will be that a mere 90 minutes gone sideways does not reflect the True Nature of Pedo Jo-jo.

    “Even the bootlickers at CNN are bailing on Biden!”

    Duh’merica’s Satanic Cabal in truth is made up of different factions, Mafia Families if you will.

    Think Godfather storylines.

    So the Jake ‘Off’ Tapper, major media man whore, is in the throw-Jo-jo under the bus faction.

    Doesn’t mean that faction prevails or even dominates behind the scenes.

    Just means the Satanic Cabal is divided.

    My take is that substituting another Buttplug in as pretend president is not an easy PR hoax.

    Although having a “jet airliner flying into the Pentagon’ during 911 and having no plane wreckage at the scene was a Masterpiece of Deception©

    Throwing Pedo Jo-jo under the bus is similar to a Building 7 collapsing.

    A lot of moving parts in this Big Lie.

    “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time…” — VDH, as Linlcoln.

    I’m beginning to think this isn’t true…

    Bannon: Yup, almost every House Republican sent him to jail. For a subpoena that’s dumb on a committee that is illegal. So if Feinsein babbles off in a corner to arrest Taylor Swift we have to do that now? Or are there still rules and processes?

    Anyway, GOP House will be way happier when they shank him in prison. What?

    “Seattle Woman Charged After Trying To Bribe Juror With $120,000 Cash To “Inject Racism” For Non-Guilty Verdict

    And that’s nobody fer nothin’ case. Think you could get Bannon roughed up for less than $120k? Think a group printing $1T every 90 days could find more than $120k if you want?

    SHUT OFF THE MONEY.

    “Something is going on behind the scenes.”

    Yes and to me, except in very broad terms, it’s not very obvious what.

    “• US Supreme Court Rules Trump Has Presidential Immunity (RT)

    In a “no duh” moment…at last. But the returning comments from the Left are breathtaking. “Now Biden can go mow down the entire Supreme Court with a minigun as part of his ‘official duties’.” What? What the f—? NO. That is not an “official duty”. WTF do you guys think government does??? Yes, there’s a lot of these.

    Logical basis: “Well if there’s any freedom at all, then that freedom is now infinite.” What? What planet did you guys grow up on? Who taught you these things? And is complete Black and White thinking all Cluster B disorder? Again?

    And their other one, “Well if there are any limits at all to [e.g. 1A, 2A] then that LIMIT is infinite.” No. For the love of Christ and all things holy, no. This is also indicated by their new love of the word “Absolute” Immunity. It’s not absolute, it means there is a PROCESS. Following process and rules is a new thing you’ve never heard of and don’t understand but bear with me here.

    Here, this is still and always relevant:

    Why CAN’T I kill Ryan from work? Why CAN only soldiers kill everyone? If the President has ANY power, why doesn’t that mean he has ALL power? Because we’re a Constitutional Republic, that’s why. Because you don’t want everyone to start shooting back, that’s why.

    “• Trump Says Immunity Ruling ‘Big Win For Democracy’ (ZH)

    He’s right. Okay, suppose this was upheld: every prosecutor in Podunk would have the right to sue and stop the President. All 3,143 counties. Every minute, all four years. Both parties. What does that mean?

    A: The End of the United States. Complete national dissolution.

    Wow, why would someone do that? A: Europe can get the bond/capital flows, and slowly re-claim all their colonies back. It’s worth any price, any bribe, any action. It’s more valuable than gold. You think you get some loose change claiming and eating Ukraine? Killing a couple million people there? Ain’t seen nothing, the U.S. is multiples her size and wealth. What else? Ben talking about it 50-100 years. World Government. Set in EUROPE. With EUROPEAN rules. NWO.

    Hey: is that what we call a “Motive” for felony bribery and treason? Of the Executive?

    “US President Joe Biden has attacked the Supreme Court, urging citizens to “dissent” against its ruling that American presidents have “absolute immunity” for their official actions.”

    I agree, Joe. I SAY DO IT!!! Now Luckenbach Texas can sue and arrest you, extradite you from Delaware for, well, anything they feel like and make up in their heads, and the DNC won’t have a presidential candidate.

    Also don’t care, none of this is what’s really going on. Ukraine is losing 3 towns and 2k men a day, 10,000 a week. Japanese bond market is making US rates come undone. That’s not big yet, it’s like too much volatility in small blips like an EKG pre heart attack right now. It may turn into something. The Ike was shot and sent for repairs and Russia still promised to retaliate this week.

    In Ukraine, I ran into a European this week, and learned really important things. Russia is on the ropes. They are fighting Ukraine with entirely Soviet equipment, and they can’t replace any of it. I pointed out that even so, killing 100,000 Ukrainians per tank means the West is your enemy, not your friend. They said, No one else would be Ukraine’s friend. Uhhhh…okay… With friends like these… “Give them what they need to win.” Yes, and instant nuclear escalation 48 hours after. Was it NATO doctrine to fight a war with zero air power? “The U.S. and so on are still dominant and would take out Russia in no time. The S400s are a joke and all they need are the Air force there.” Uh-huh. Good thinking. Again, and total worldwide nuclear exchange 48 hours later?

    So there you have, a really informed person, deep level on all that. And I, um… disagree? Also them: The EU is FAN-Tastic! No taxation level is too high! There is NO regulation that is too far. They are ALWAYS beneficial. In fact, at work, he tells every customer to register a complaint and get his company sued by EU regulators. For anything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiyfwZVAzGw

    And the EU is great and Federal level of rules for everything, and ALSO causes there to be better, more national individuality and expression BOTH! Yes! There is no downside: the stronger and more powerful the center is, the more powerful and differenter all the parts are too.

    AND, it’s going to prevent all wars in Europe forever, because without the EU, there would just have to be a WWIII. Just does. …No I didn’t get a chance to point out that under Rome, or King Charles, Napoleon, or whoever else conquered Europe there was still non-stop war IN the Unified Europe. One can only do so much, and I was there to learn this sorcery.

    Yup, EU: All upside, no downside! Infinity taxation and regulation = better than ever. No costs to those benefits. This is why you have to Listen. Ah, the things you learn…

    (Okay, and you thought AMERICANS were stupid, dumber than a bag of hammers.)
    “ Alarming Study Finds 33% Of Americans Are Dumber Than A Bag Of Hammers” –BBee

    That’s only because they haven’t talked to any Europeans in the streets yet. Reminds me of Mark Twain: “If you don’t real the newspapers, you’ll be uninformed. But if you DO read the newspaper, you’ll be MISinformed.”

    Btw, that awesome, stronger-than-ever local, national expression of ethnic identity does NOT extend to Hungary or Poland, the bastards. DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD or get out. When we say “Europe” we mean the Europe — I — prefer. Everyone else should be shot.

    “If Putin does not immediately use sufficient force to terminate the conflict, World War Three seems certain..”

    Oh good God, again? WHY would Russia or China ever do this? The longer they wait the more the U.S. collapses on it’s own and it’s not their fault.

    “The Pentagon [finally] grasped that something had happened” But like dismal, dottering dinosaurs they didn’t know what.

    This is how “Insulated” the U.S. feels and why they act this way: They feel like ANYTHING they do, anything at all, will never come back on them, ever, probably a sentiment seeded to them from England. 100 Nations toppled in 100 years? And if something did? Pearl clutching, shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, that cutting off Japan’s oil supplies would be considered an act of war. SHOCKED that putting nukes in Turkey 30 miles from Russia would alarm the Soviets. Why I say old chum! That’s just not cricket!

    I don’t know how to pop it since they’ll go nuclear – literally — like any toddler if you pop their bubble they’ll have a tantrum that melts the earth. The PUBLIC may not feel that way, unlike the glue sniffing infants at Harvard, but then the Public doesn’t KNOW anything either. They’ve been carefully removed from all facts and knowledge for decades. You only need this nuke-window while we’re looking up from working in the iPhone mines and start looking into what’s going on. Like GWoT, we’ll find out and say no but it will take too long.

    “• ‘Unipolar US Dollar’ Mutated Into ‘Politically Weaponized’ Tool (Sp.)

    This article and things-we’re-not-paying-attention-to, the interest next year will be $1.7 TRILLION. We also have compounding so the debt will have to rise to $2T every 100 days. Why would that break anything? $1T/100 hasn’t. Why not $1 Quadrillion a day? $10 Quadrillion?

    ““The children here have not gone to school for a year, and we are under rocket fire day and night. It is a very strange situation.”

    Sounds like maybe you should do something. Like also here, 100% of students fail with no competency in 100 schools across the U.S. Nothing is done, they have no competency again next year, 10-20 years in a row now.

    “Oh but we spent more MONEY!!!” they say. Really, in the last 19 years did that MONEY do anything for your scores? Oh, they went DOWN??? Who failed at competency again? The Students? Or the Adults?

    Like other egg-heads, Nenner is interesting. He’s an MD, lived around the world, Dutch, traded in NYC, could go anywhere, and he’s going to get nuked and die in Northern Israel now? No reason. On purpose? No, I am not kidding. That’s where he’s saying It’s not safe in NYC now. For Jews. They’re stopping everyone in the subway and making them drop their pants to see if they’re Jewish or not.

    What the…???????????? No. No they are NOT. Is there always ONE weird mentally ill person doing that? Of course. Since 1910. You tell him to take a hike or you’ll sock him. But also in the U.S. the number of Jewish doctors doing what is “Scientific” since 1960 mean a sizable number of Gentiles are also circumcised. You dummy. Nothing you’re saying makes any sense. And as deadly as NYC is, it’s a joyous cakewalk in Central Park compared to Lebanon during a war. You dummy. He’d be safer in IRAN. Literally and far safer. Yeah, Iran’s after all the Jews with their sizable internal Jewish population, wtf.

    He’s only nutso about this ONE thing: being Jewish and Israel. So he’s a match for Greg Hunter, who only loses his brains about Israel. Or the people here, who can understand anything logically and rationally unless you use the word “Jew” then they drop hebephrenic, foaming at the mouth, babbling on the floor. Have to race out and cave some babies’ head in in the cradle for being “born bad”.

    Weird in comparison to his objective timing model, but people are odd like that. If they tie their emotion in one place, it leaks out somewhere else. Should really keep an eye on that, but if he wants to die in Israel for nothing, who am I to say otherwise? Hope he left his models to someone.

    They’ve eating your brains…..

    “As president, his mental decline progressed geometrically, in the sense that every three months, Biden became far, far worse than during the prior 90 days.

    His handlers long ago had determined that masking his feebleness at the expense of the security and safety of the nation was a small price to pay to retain power.

    What followed was the most comprehensive deceit in presidential history, analogous to insisting that frail and dying FDR in 1944 was just fine as the November election approached or that Woodrow Wilson was expertly running the country as he lay bedridden and near comatose.”

    From Larry Johnson

    On Pedo Jo-jo’s options

    “So there is:

    option one — Biden stays in the race and his medical condition will continue to deteriorate. Anyone who seriously thinks that Biden can stage a debate comeback in September is in need of incarceration in the nearest psychiatric ward. I will even pony up the bucks to buy you a strait-jacket with an embroidery of a Biden Presidential Seal in the front.

    Option two — Biden stabilizes and manages to stop pooping his pants on the campaign trail. Odds of that happening? Ukraine will conquer Russia first.

    Option three — Joe does not come down for breakfast (i.e., dies in his sleep) or suffers a major medical crisis before the convention. That opens a whole new can of worms. All of the money Biden raised for his campaign cannot be transferred to the eventual replacement. If Biden is dead or removed via the 25th Amendment — whether before or after the convention — say hello to President Kamala Harris.

    From the sounds of it, Kamala is a Dylan Thomas fan:

    “Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    She will be doing some raging, you can bet on that. And there is a bevy of women of “color” ready to back her up and insist that she get a Presidential term in her on right. Does not matter that she is unpopular and unelectable. Remember, this is the party that insists there is no such thing as a biological woman. It the world of magical Democrat thinking, all Kamala has to do is identify as President and “Bingo!” She’s it.

    Option four — Joe drops out and there is an open convention. If you believe that Democracy Democrat-style is like a Mixed Martial Arts cage match with Wrestlers from the WWF then you will be ecstatic. I propose we have all prospective candidates clad in bikinis or Speedos, fully lathered up with pig grease, and force them to wrestle to determine who gets the Presidential nod. Here is an image you will have trouble erasing from your mind — Hillary Clinton in a Brazilian thong using a figure four head lock on Gavin Newsome. Yikes!”

    Awwwww apparently Lenochka Zelenskaya bought a €4.5 million Bugatti Tourbillon

    (I didn’t know you could even spend that much on a car)

    While Ukrainians are sent to die in a senseless conflict, Olena Zelenska splurges on the latest €4.5 million Bugatti Turbillon during a Paris visit.

    The decadence amidst devastation is unfathomable.

    An insider from Bugatti’s Paris dealership disclosed that a private presentation was arranged exclusively for the Zelensky couple on June 7.

    This sneak peek, held two weeks before the public reveal, led Zelenska to secure the first of only 250 cars to be produced.

    Journalists have obtained the invoice, confirming the staggering sum.

    The car will be delivered in 2026.

    PANIC, CHAOS, “PLAN B”, REPLACE VP,

    presidential immunity:
    • Trump Says Immunity Ruling ‘Big Win For Democracy’ (ZH)

    • Biden Reacts To Trump Immunity Ruling (RT)

    US President Joe Biden has attacked the Supreme Court, urging citizens to “dissent” against its ruling that American presidents have “absolute immunity” for their official actions.

    (Biden forgot: the pot and the kettle are black.

    Synonyms for DISSENT: discord, dissention, strife, friction, conflict, discordance, war,

    Democrats and Republicans are in a common recognition,
    Biden has cognitive decline/dementia, not a “bad debate nights”, he has neither the energy nor mental acuity to lead the country for four more years.
    the president’s performance widely seen as “incoherent” and “fumbling,”
    blaming his poor performance on his team and CNN, Biden family members are said to have blamed the debate debacle on three advisors: Anita Dunn, her husband Bob Bauer — who played the role of Trump in practice sessions — and Biden’s former chief of staff Ron Klain, who was in charge of the debate training.
    Plan “B” – in favor of an open convention,

    Who has “the codes”?

    Who is running the gov.?)

    —————–

    Bloomberg reports that the Democratic National Committee is considering formally nominating Joe Biden as early as mid-July to ensure that the president is on November ballots, while helping to stamp out intra-party chatter of replacing him after last week’s poor debate performance.
    Democrats had already planned to nominate Biden, 81, before the convention in order to ensure he appears on the ballot in Ohio, which had an Aug. 7 deadline for candidates to be certified.
    A potential date for Biden’s nomination is July 21, when the Democratic convention’s credentials committee meets virtually, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.
    The panel is meeting to finalize procedures before the party’s convention in Chicago starts on Aug. 19.

    Since his hiding-in-the-basement campaign in 2020 “Joe Biden’s” Party of Chaos has pretended that he is fit and alert for the job and now all of sudden they pretend to be shocked to see how far gone in the head he really is.

    First lady Dr. Jill led a cheerleading session before a roomful of partisans that went beyond cringeworthy into uncharted territory of mortification. (“You were great, Joe! You answered all the questions!”).

    Pepe talkin’ to the Judge

    If Ukronaziland isn’t finished before Nov, the Empire of Lies is putting 15 military bases in Finland right on the Russian border and that will go into overdrive escalation after the Duh’merican ‘election’, whatever Frankenstein Clusterfuck that turns out to be.

    So Russia better think of rolling up Ukronaziland before then.

    Re. PCR on French Nationalism (top post.)

    Politics in France has descended into a theatrical shit-show.

    The theatre is incredibly bad, boring screeching about totally irrelevant words, symbols.
    A sort of cult atmosphere pertains in the 3 main camps, calling them by their leaders, Macron, Mélenchon, Le Pen.

    ‘Extreme’ right, left, etc. is politically, socially, economically completely meaningless – what programs or promises exist are purely populist and concern internal re-distribution and the ‘immigant’ question, which is sending everyone crazy, yet any propositions that could be implemented are lacking.

    (See Brexit, touted on controlling borders, favoring the natives, result, more immigrants coming in than ever, care of the Tories.)

    Foreign Policy, France’s debt, its beloinging to the EU, problems in the Health system, Energy, etc. are just swept aside in the madness, or mentioned as side-issues…

    The two trad parties, Socialistes, Républicains, while they still nominally exist, are dead, their remains have split and joined either Le Rassemblement National (le pen), the Nouveau Front Populaire (left-green alliance, mélenchon, glucksmann, with the ex-pres. socialist hollande joining in), or the supposed party of Macron which changes names all the time, now called ENSEMBLE > not a pol. party but a group of followers, groupies, profiteers, managers behind the scene..

    The country is going down.. slowly… takes time… The MSM have even represented the election results in a fraudulent way (the exact nos. are available on Gvmt. site.) What they did is UP the grip of the – oh the horrors! – EXTREME RIGHT..

    Who engineered this, on the face of it? Who is the no. 1 person responsible? Macron. Who is the winner? In his mind, Macron.

    Le Monde (MSM, paper of record), published an article, right after the dissolution of Parliament, quoting him as saying,

    «… Je prépare ça depuis des semaines, et je suis ravi. Je leur ai balancé ma grenade dégoupillée dans les jambes. Maintenant on va voir comment ils s’en sortent…  »

    I prepared this move weeks ago, and I’m delighted .. I threw a ‘live’ hand grenade between their legs. So, we will see how they manage to deal with it…

    The Elysée published a meek denial, but Le Monde did not retract / correct.

    Imho PCR doesn’t know much about what is going on in France though some of his ‘general’, historical, points are OK.

    See also the Duran for ex. They seem to support ‘right wing nationalism’ and see Marine Le Pen as a kind of ‘good’ figure … maybe after Meloni switched on practically all issues after her election .. will have some impact?

    Joe Biden is as good as gone, as Democrats assess polling data before they finalize their move to “Plan B.”

    And the theatre continues … Wake up! This is not plan B, this is plan A. What is wrong with people granting the Biden regime the benefit of the doubt that they did not notice Biden was kaput. There has been no doubt for a very long time, so why grant them the benefit of the doubt? They are lying to you, it is all an act, this is plan A, this has always been a part of plan A. No wonder America is in the shit when the people cannot even see through this blatantly obvious theatre … duh’merica will only get better with more immigrants, the old immigrants are rotting on their sofas.

    Vivek Ramaswamy said that Biden’s presentation made him wonder who runs the US government. Musk replied: “Maybe nobody.”

    A second generation indian migrant and a first generation south african migrant discuss the sad state of the USA. Of course Musk does not believe what he is saying, he is not dumb enough to think that all that presidential power is being left to rot and nobody is using it.

    Musk is proving his qualifications as an American entrepreneur, telling the people what they want to hear and pretending reality does not exist. Musk knows that reality exists, he had a visit from Netanyahu to remind him that reality exists, so he knows his sources of finance will quickly disappear if he forgets about reality, in which case he will drop like a stone and be another corner shop owner addicted to twitter.

    Maybe second generation is the most you can achieve without completely surrendering to the pressure to be dumb in duh’merica.

    Tucker Carlson reports that Jill Biden is keeping her husband away from people who would convince him to drop out, reports that Obama is bashing Biden behind the scenes

    Obama is obviously supposed to be tainted in all this, tainted in the eyes of the Biden lovers, so I doubt big mike will be the replacement candidate. It looks like they are trying to tarnish Obama’s name just enough to make people think that he had some role in causing Biden to resign, as if dementure was not enough, and was therefore not overtly disloyal but not totally loyal. It is interesting to see the game played out.

    Of course, the Biden family meeting to discuss his future is total bullshit, as is the rest of the “indecision” about what is to happen. The decision was made, probably years ago, and the new candidate has already been trained and briefed on what is to happen. As for us, we get to watch from this side of the curtain.

    Democrat voters will be lapping this up, the PR people must be loving watching the sheep twist and turn as they whistle to their sheep dogs, the media.

    Not just ‘no longer at peace’, Russia was holding the U.S. responsible for the ‘cluster strike’ on a Crimean beach on last Sunday’s Pentecost holiday, killing several (including children) and injuring many more.

    The Russians have been waiting for this moment, something that would so enrage the Russian people that they could move their plan forward. The Crocus mall attack, although more deadly, was not obvious enough to use as the trigger, but Russia knew that all it had to do was wait and the USA/Ukrain morons would do something really stupid that would allow the plan to move to the next phase.

    They talk as if the new phase is a reaction to the Ukraine/USA behaviour, but that behaviour has been around for a long time, which is why the Russians knew that they could use that bad behaviour to move the Russian people and the BRICS community forward to the next phase of the plan.

    Very interesting to watch as each new stage of the Russia/China plan emerges.

    Weren’t we all describing Biden CAMPAIGNING for president in 2019 as elder abuse?

    I’ve been telling anyone since that election cycle “Trust me. That guy isn’t in charge of ANYTHING.”

    The pearl-clutching at supposed geometric-rate expansion of dementia is fake, gay, cringe, and retarded. (the 4 new horsemen of the apocalypse)

    What Trump SHOULD have done during the most recent debate:

    “Joe. We’ve been watching you getting lost during sentences, lost at the podium, guided around by your wife and staffers. You can’t find your way off a stage let alone set national or international policy. Can you tell us, Joe, WHO IS ACTUALLY RUNNING THE COUNTRY?”

    and then no matter what is said in response

    “Followup question, Joe. Whoever really IS running the country for the past 4 years… can I please debate THEM? Do you think you could arrange that?”

    Putin has permitted the conflict to go on and on and on, and this has enabled Washington to get more and more and more involved, thus widening the conflict. If Putin does not immediately use sufficient force to terminate the conflict, World War Three seems certain.

    Paul Craig Roberts has his own make-believe plan, something economists are prone to do as they still can’t figure out how the economy really works, so make-believe has to step in. He seems to think that all the brains of the Russian and Chinese cannot work out a joint plan for the take over of power from the west. He is still in the “white man’s burden” way of thinking, not able to credit anyone other than the US with the brains to rule the world.

    Well, I am sure the Russians and Chinese have plenty of experts who can easily work out the plan, they probably also have many more variables to account for than simply the war, and they have much higher goals than simply winning the war. The “win the war” mentality is the US mentality, it is retarded but seems to keep the American people happy, despite nobody asking about why they are fighting the war, or what happens when they win or lose, instead “win the war” is enough to satiate the American mind.

    Outside America, countries have to take a more nuanced approach, more nuanced for a start because they have the American war machine constantly ready to pounce. America does not have to worry about being attacked, the USA and Israel are the only homicidal maniacs on the planet and they commit crimes together; they are the Jew gang. Other countries also have to bring their citizens with them, unlike America where people are told “We are fighting Iraq to spread democracy” or “they hate us for our success” etc, such bullshit doesn’t fly in other countries, in America such words are enough to make the average American lie back on his sofa.

    And remember even WELL after the election, Biden was doing all his activities in a weird quasi MOCK-UP of the White House! Remember that? With flatscreen displays for the windows?

    He wasn’t even allowed IN THE BUILDING. Remember when there was that weird wall – not the chain link fence, the super massive concrete one that got put up for a while? wtf was that? WHILE he wasn’t able to do his job from within the White House.

    Nobody remember that?

    Meanwhile a strange stat about ‘feminism’ emerges

    I have never met a Chinese-educated feminist in all my years in China, but I have met American-educated Chinese who are feminists. As soon as you hear that American accent emerging from that Chinese body, you think “Bad Parents, you fucked up your child”. You may have had the best intentions, but you fucked it up.

    The Chinese definitely believe in male-female equality at work, so you will see old (70’s) women working in a road-repair gang, you will also see a similar aged woman as CEO of a company. The “feminism” in China is not feminism in the sense of what “feminism” means in the west. China has always been this way, the whole family works, men women and children, there are no female rights campaigners in China other than those educated in duh’merica.

    Similarly, the LGBT people of China just go about their business, there is no LGBT movement in China other than that imported from duh’merica. It is just not a thing over here, people are way too tolerant and way too good at minding their own business for such an issue to emerge naturally. Of course, the USA is constantly trying to make it an issue, but the Chinese in mainland China are onto it, the Chinese in Taiwan are not onto it, they are changing every year, trying to turn their country culture into fucked duh’merica.

    Duh’mericans support the Gaza genocide yet worry about abortion? What is it about American people that they can get their brains stuck on such a “none of your business” issue? Why are American people not willing to let the up-the-duff tart make the decision for herself? How does the duh’merica PR process manage to make this such a huge issue in every election?

    A: It is a very simple issue, so Duh’mericans can understand it and take a side. The voters think this makes them principled and informed people. Duh!
