    • More Than 750,000 Dead, 30 Million Injured Because of Covid Vax (TNA)

    With these kind of numbers, I presume that that the people involved with the vaxx rollout don’t really want to know about the tragedies it caused.

    “If our own government was responsible for the deaths of almost 100,000 people, would you really want to know?”
    Eric Finch, Chief inspector of New Scotland Yard, in the 2005 film “V for Vendetta”

    “IEA: Europe Will Have to Cut Gas Usage by Nearly One-Third

    The rich people have all said It’s their war, they’ll take the national one-third cut at their chalets. That’s only fair.

    “there are some surprisingly blunt admissions coming out of Western officials over the Kaliningrad crisis, such as the following in Reuters: “We have to face reality,” said one person with direct knowledge of the EU discussions, calling Kaliningrad “sacred” for Moscow. “(Putin) has a lot more influence than we do. It’s in our interest to find a compromise,”

    Been thinking about Russia. If you were the West, what was your game plan? Well we know they demanded Russia blitzkreig and attack Kiev street-to-street because I haven’t seen them so upset and crying “Nooooooo!” since Trump’s election night.

    So we know the U.S. has no industrial base and can’t hold a war six weeks. (“If this war should last longer than six hours, consult your doctor.”) And we know the U.S. miscalculated because we said so. Since we got nothin’, we can only push countries around if they DON’T go full war and fight back. Like we put one carrier group of Iraq. That should be able to be sunk in a few weeks of work, blowing a hole in our illusions of invulnerability. We have the quotes they didn’t want a war, they wanted to be bully and encroach again, one foot at a time until they’re in your bed with their pants off. (Literally, says Ghislane)

    So since we have no industrial base, I THINK they wanted Russia to go in guns blazing, and likewise use up all THEIR far larger industrial base. How do you make Russia helpless? They have hypersonic missiles. Yes but how many? 12? 30? How many per month? So you get Russia to attack Ukraine and Ukraine, being huge, uses up the Russian warehouse stores and industrial base of Russia which being small can’t refill them any faster than we can.

    Okay, 3, 6, 12 months later they’re spent. THEN what? We say we wanted a “long war” since we’re babbling idiots and self-aggrandizing narcissists, we just TELL them our plans. …Good guys never lose, of course, because Western reality is created entirely from drugs and movies. Once Most of Russia’s war material is gone, we then suddenly take umbrage at “Wot’s this war all about then?” and COUNTERATTACK out of Lithuania or Poland. …’Natch because then the Anglos can fight Russia to the last Pole, Lithuanian, and again, Slav.

    Have we heard the cries and whinging on to Mars about this? Yes. They’re essentially cries of “Not Fair!” because being the bad guy, Russia is required to fall into our master plans of paint cans and slingshots because war is one big episode of “Home Alone” we saw when we were 12. Yup, that’s war! You have to stand in JUST the right place…

    Since the West can’t keep their mouths shut and prints everything we think on the internet, probably Tweet to the minute updates of our motions and plans, Russia has taken Ukraine with their Vietnam era gear, so they don’t have to dispose of it in a landfill. They held most back in reserve for the real attack. And they did not overextend in an enormous country, but took only the friendly areas and also wiping out the entire Ukrainian army with can’t avoid but come contact them, since they were massed for genocide in Donbas.

    And then? Well, as minions, we don’t make plans, we OBEY plans, so when the plan changes there’s like two guys locked in a closet somewhere they reluctantly pull out and consult. And they’re both 100 years old and drooling, like Kissinger, thinking that the USSR is still communist and still exists. So we got no plan yet. It takes forever, NATO is hollowed out, all the nations can see if Ukr needs 100 tanks, and likely more since those won’t rail to the front, and Joe is sending like cotton candy and silly string, then what’s the use, really? Why be with Nato OR the Americans? Suits me fine because Americans don’t want an empire anyway. There is nothing these guys could do that I could add to. There is no discrediting or decisions they could make that would speed up or improve on the collapse, dissolution, devolution, they are doing for themselves. I’ll just go to the beach and check my phone, you’re doing fine winning for the U.S. State Nationalists, really. Keep talkin’, Liz. Just keep her and Kamala in front of a mike all day.

    As the war is on Russia’s pace, they are taking the only area worth a lick in the whole country: Donbas and the ports. The rest is a dead loss. Kiev is a population which is a food-suck. All cities are. The West Ukr empty fields are screwed if they don’t control the ports to export with, so who cares? They will then use Donbas’ industrial base and manpower to re-fill their Russian Army munitions. They can do this because, what is Europe going to do? With 1/3 less gas and no functional currency for 2/3rds of the world’s population and production? Attack? Attack with what? We just demonstrated that every tank in Germany would bounce off Russia like a pea shooter and the Yanks ain’t coming. Ever.

    So falling back, Europe can rebuild their military or not. If so, they will even MORE desolate since with no gas, oil, or metals, no currency and no economy, they are then diverting the small remaining GDP exclusively to war. WWII rations to infinity and beyond. You think the population is going to sign up for that? They won’t sign up now when we’re NOT doing that, and it’s not winter yet either.

    Otoh, Russia WILL rebuild their military and industrial base, using the new NovoRussia. And have no trouble doing so, although it will take some years.

    Since as I said, the West has one brain cell and they have to unplug it to give to the two remaining centenarian war planners, they should have plenty of time to accomplish this before our 8” floppies and dot-matrix printers that runs our nuclear codes print out a response for minions like Austin and Blinken to follow.

    Empire to Expand NATO In Response to War Caused by NATO Expansion”

    Yup, prettymuch how we do everything. Debt to solve more debt. Manipulation to solve overmanipulation. Lies to solve more lies. Fraud to solve more fraud. Oppression to solve resistance to oppression. It’s what useless, unthinking cults do. The cult of MOAR.

    “Port of Houston Marks All-Time Container Volume Record”

    Moving U.S. functions out of enemy-controlled territories that were embargoing us, aka “California”.

    “Biden Admin to Deploy 1.6 Million Doses of Monkeypox Vaccines in “Enhanced” Strategy”

    Employing 1.6 million vaccines to stop 20 cases. Are they planning on dropping it on them at a great height? Maybe adding cement and building a locked house made of vials? No, the Crime Syndicate needs to move money between branches again. They shake down the people, move it from their government arm to the Pharma arm, then move that money to elections and illegal biowarfare labs to shut down election night. Use the election win to shake down more people, move more money, sell more bombs, rinse, repeat.

    “Biden is Radical” Who is this Jon Freedland character? Biden could not possibly less radical, or less Democratic for that matter, if he tried. Campaign trail, 1st order of business: send Roe. Nope. The decision was leaked and they could have rush passed it. Nope. M4A? Nope. Student loans? Nope. Minimum wage? Nope. Did shut down pipelines so the the oil can derail on trains though.

    This is a constant complaint, since Mr. Freedland couldn’t “Ask” anybody using a “telephone” or logging on to the “Internet”: the Student Left, or even the base thinks Democrat heads and candidates are actually DeFacto Republicans: Pro War, Pro Billionaire, Pro Business. They have a good case, except there are no Republicans either, it’s just the UniParty: the Big Club WWE that you’re not in.

    Biden has also been a complete failure in everything he’s done, both for the Left, the DNC, and the UniParty. So as we often ask here: who is this article for? Why was it written? So the French Left can become even more incompetent and useless than now?

    “Europe can’t do anything in three months, or even six.”

    No, but they can SIGNAL. Thinking things, saying them, and doing them are all the same thing when there is no #Reality, and all the universe is merely your Ego. The voter base is exactly the same and sees nothing wrong, perfectly satisfied with 50 years of “Signaling” about passing Roe and never doing it once. Vote for the same people again and never blink, don’t feel double-crossed at all. So why not keep it up? It’s working.

    “Quadruple-Vaxxed Fauci Tests Positive for COVID-19 Again (Celente)”

    Ah, but it’s working so well he needs to be quintuple-vaxxed. Getting the disease all the time is how you know it’s working. Unlike all the unvaxxed, who no longer get Covid, so you know it’s not working. He also quarantines himself because it’s working for everybody else and they’re protected. That’s Schmartz.

    “Why We Should Doubt Cassidy Hutchinson (Athey)”

    Because I’m dense, I missed one of the other implications of this fake story they wrote: their testimony proves Trump knew nothing and had never planned an insurrection. IF he knew he was causing an insurrection to stop the electors and seize the election, (carrying no weapons and having no plans) THEN in the car, with the USSS, he would know which building to be in. Wouldn’t he? And as Jimmy Dore says, he’s this amazing new Hitler, the great dictator who is taking over the government when he can’t even take over his own car.

    So, Cassy’s testimony: aside from being false, their statement definitively proves Trump’s innocence.

    And Cheney is down what 28% now in Wyoming? When she wins again, will anyone think it’s suspicious and look into the elections there? Nah.

    Russia default: Russia wins again. The West helps Russia every day, every way they can. Now Russia no longer needs to pay creditors? How do we as a nation and as students, and as former medical patients get in on this plan?

    It’s taking an amazingly long time for the economic side to crash and explode, I’ll tell ya.


    Another Illusions

    Winslow Homer Camping in the Adirondacks (Wood engraving) 1874

    Two males and a faithful dog, relaxing/bonding/roughing it, no mosquitoes/no bugs, no toilet paper, no shower, no fog or rain, no camping gear,

    (Glamping: a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping:
    “glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries”)


    Despite its heavy defences, regular Ukrainian attacks were making Russia’s position on the island untenable.

    More illusions

    Russia’s defence ministry described the decision to withdraw as a “gesture of goodwill” that showed Moscow was not obstructing United Nations efforts to ship grain from Ukrainian ports.

    But the abandonment of Snake island is a major reversal for Russia in the battle for control of the Black Sea, and shows that – despite Russian gains elsewhere – the war is far from over.

    Ukraine claimed it had driven out the Russian forces after an enormous assault on Wednesday night.


    “..there’s no reason why Russia would want to sell any oil whatsoever to Europe

    Notice I didn’t include the part at the end ‘at the cap prices’

    Because at this point Russia should just stop selling Eurotardistan ANYTHING. Period.

    Eurotardistan© is Reality Incapable

    They need a 2×4 up the side of their collective heads. A really, really hard smack.

    But the plan is to deindustrialize the Collective West until they can’t even make a bucket and a mop, much less a car or a computer.

    Depopulate Old Europe and bring in the Third World Sheeple who are use to next to nothing.

    Lira thinks that the migrants pouring in for a ‘better life’ in Eurotardistan© are the ones who will burn the house down this winter because freezing and starving in the dark wasn’t what they were ‘promised’ by the Fairy Godmother of Western Exceptionalism.

    It was supposed to be the Land of Milk & Honey.

    Two items today, both in the Real Big Stuff category.

    #1. Looks like humankind has (as usual) dodged the bullet temporarily, regarding the probability of TEOTWACAMEEFAPP (The End Of the World and Civilization And Most Everything Else For All Practical Purposes). Or maybe I should say at least it didn’t disintegrate any immediately vital organs. The Four Horsemen definitely are passing through, but will leave at least two thirds of us still standing (albeit wobbly in most cases) until the grim riders manage to make the turn and come sweeping back through again on their next try. Maybe in a century or two. But as for the moment, it’s ‘so far so good’ , species-wise. Thanks Russia. We owe ya one.

    #2. Have you noticed who’s been rather absent from the “Grand Stage” of “The Big Show? (They’ve been playing bit parts and supporting roles for quite a while, but I perceive them stepping up for a perhaps surprise leading role) That’s right! Islam! It’s still in flux about whether it will be Turkey or Iran on the marquee, but with the United Kingdom of America’s dazzling duo (CIA/MI 6) existentially preoccupied with a big Russian Bear, Muhamad is free to concentrate on diplomatically engineered expansion and is about to make a big comeback. I see them as the newly crucial swing vote in the now de facto Multi Polar World consisting of Russia, China, India and The Undead West. ( P.S. the Vatican better up its game, too, if it intends to stay in the game as anything more than a “sew on” label for an old brand that has fallen from fashion.) What THEY need is a charismatically energetic new POPE . Advisably one less into satanic child sexual abuse than the previous several have been.

    Anyhow, those 2 items are my rock-of-the-day tossed into TAE’s placid pool of polite conversation here on on this fine Thursday. Gotta go now. Now that the Crystal Ball is working again I have to go find that damn cornucopia. I know I left it around here somewhere around here someplace . . . . . . maybe fell into that wishing well.

    Song by Ten Years After


    Everywhere is freaks and hairies
    Dykes and fairies, tell me, where is sanity?
    Tax the rich, feed the poor
    ‘Til there are no rich no more

    I’d love to change the world
    But I don’t know what to do
    So I’ll leave it up to you

    Population keeps on breeding
    Nation bleeding, still more feeding, economy
    Life is funny, skies are sunny
    Bees make honey, who needs money? No, not poor me

    I’d love to change the world
    But I don’t know what to do
    So I’ll leave it up to you

    Oh, yeah

    World pollution, there’s no solution
    Institution, electrocution
    Just black and white, rich or poor
    Them and us, stop the war

    I’d love to change the world
    But I don’t know what to do
    So I’ll leave it up to you

    Jonathan Freedland. Long time since I have seen that name. He does not believe in democracy, does not believe that people should be told the truth in order to make up their own minds, in his own language he is a “white supremecist” that believes in authoritarianism with the respectful vaneer of democracy. His entire belief system is based on lying to people because he and his owners know best. No wonder he is championing Biden, we all know Biden is not running the show, so that meets his authoritarian nirvana.


    “Solitude is for me a fount of healing which makes my life worth living. Talking is often torment for me, and I need many days of silence to recover from the futility of words.”
    “As the individual is not just a single, separate being, but by his very existence presupposes a collective relationship, it follows that the process of individuation must lead to more intense and broader collective relationships and not to isolation.”
    Yeah. Jung. Like Freud, a beautiful writer, but built to be memed.

    Maxwell Quest

    “As the individual is not just a single, separate being, but by his very existence presupposes a collective relationship, it follows that the process of individuation must lead to more intense and broader collective relationships and not to isolation.”

    This quote reminds me of a dream I had back in my early 40’s, a time period in which I was studying Jungian psychology of all things:

    I was at the top of an enormous tower like a space needle, and was looking down upon the landscape below and all the people milling about. My guide said that I was responsible for all 25,000 of them, but that in order to help them I would need to climb down. Of course, this process of climbing down from such a great height scared the living hell out of me, but my guide stayed opposite of me on the tower, and I was able to climb down successfully by focusing on him instead of the ground far below.

    The understanding I received from this dream was that the people below represented my 25,000 human incarnations, and all 25,000 were still living inside me as various aspects, making me truly a collective being with numerous internal relationships. There was more to extract from the dream imagery, of course, but this was the part pertinent to the quote above.

    Veracious Poet

    People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls.

    They will practice Indian yoga and all its exercises, observe a strict regimen of diet, learn the literature of the whole world – all because they cannot get on with themselves and have not the slightest faith that anything useful could ever come out of their own souls.

    Thus the soul has gradually been turned into a Nazareth from which nothing good can come.

    Therefore let us fetch it from the four corners of the earth ; The more far-fetched and bizarre it is the better ~ Carl Jung



    When younger, I used to have dreams of free falling down to earth. Then just as I was about to crash land, I would suddenly wake up in bed with , one hell of a jolt! Never did figure out the meaning of these dreams. Not sure why the issue of wearing a parachute never came up.


    The problem for me is my soul can dream up more projects to do than my poor old body can ever find the energy to do! Sign of old age!




    The Canadian withdrawing a largish amount of cash having problems is a worldwide phrenomenon. Here in Australia the banks ask me questions every time I send money overseas ( and from my HSBC account to my wife’s HSBC account).
    And they have done this on sums as little as $2000.
    BTW anyone dealing in cash needs to learn a few simple rules to not get flagged, to not break the law and to not get the money seized. The number one rule to remember is that in many countries the banks are required by law to report transactions over 10 grand. The second rule to remember is that the are “encouraged” to report lesser but still large sums (something like 5 grand up). And the third rule to remember is many countries have LAWS regarding structuring payments (say to get around depositing 100 grand being reported you instead go 25 times to the bank ( perhaps several times a day for a fortnight) to only make individual payments of under 5 grand. The bank will spot this and they are required to report all suspicious activity. You had better have a plausible excuse ( like you made multiple trips to reduce the amount you would lose if mugged) and if you admit to structuring then you will face prosecution. At the very least they will have flagged you for full audits of your tax affairs for X number of previous years and also for the future.
    Best to keep a modest amount in the bank. (and spread over several banks) and salt away a little each week out of prying eyes. Another thing to put away is a few hundred to a few grand in small change (in the US nickels are ideal as their metal content is near their face value making them a hedge against both inflation and deflation). You can always use them for daily expenses and in an emergency they make a nice weapon inside a sock.

    The quote about tolerance is spot on. Unfortunately, though, Dostoevsky didn’t write it, It’s a fake quote. But if he was among us today, I like to think that he very well could have written it and that he would have been remiss not to have done so.

    Here’s a nice genuine Dostoyevsky quote:

    “Above all, avoid lies, all lies, especially the lie to yourself. Keep watch on your own lie and examine it every hour, every minute. And avoid contempt, both of others and of yourself: what seems bad to you in yourself is purified by the very fact that you have noticed it in yourself. And avoid fear, though fear is simply the consequence of every lie. Never be frightened at your own faintheartedness in attaining love, and meanwhile do not even be very frightened by your own bad acts.”
