I am dumbfounded, but Kissinger for Secretary of State.
Shoigu said, Russian troops are not carrying out strikes on civilian infrastructure where there may be people nearby. Instead, identified firing positions and Ukrainian military facilities are being hit with “high-precision weapons,” he added.
Moscow explains Ukraine operation slowdown The move is intentional and allows civilians the chance to evacuate, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu says
(Shoigu is almost Bidenesque)
But given the slowdown spin, Orlov thinks WW3 will still be over in 20 more days. (That’s good, because it will probably take more than 20 to get those Harpoons operational)
Something a Z-tard would say,
“Now that, Western arms shipments notwithstanding, the Ukrainian military is being whittled away at a rate that will finish it off in approximately 20 days (the calculated “Day Z”), Russia is poised to emerge as an outright victor in World War III which, just like the Cold War, which it had lost, was barely even fought. This will restore Russia’s military’s mystique of being perpetually victorious.”May 24, 2022 at 9:00 pm #108426May 24, 2022 at 9:29 pm #108427May 24, 2022 at 10:43 pm #108428

Most pietà paintings annoy me in that the model for Christ is largely unblemished, with only minor holes in the hands and feet. The gospels report that he was flogged and beaten almost beyond recognition. To depict the reality would be rather hard to take, and not suitable for children.
So, the Unrainians are putting Russion POWs on trial for war crimes, and the Russians are putting Ukrainian POWs on trial for war crimes. How far will this go?
I am greatly saddened by this whole ghastly war. I know Russians and Ukrainians and I like them all. Indeed, I have yet to meet a Ukrainian I don’t like (although I am sure that such a species does exist). To see them tearing at each other like this is appalling beyond words. May it soon stop. But even when it does, the hatreds and repercussions will go on for generations. Not a good investment in the future.May 25, 2022 at 12:24 am #108435BishkoParticipant

The SPX made its last high on 1/3/2022. Today is day 99. The SPX is now down 17% from the high!
Enter the concept: … “The 99-day rule for stocks!”
In a nutshell: … a market declines from a high point that last less than 99 days often reverse themselves. If a market makes a new high in less than 99 days, it almost always goes on to make new highs (bull market). If a market does NOT make new high in less than 99 days, it pretty well – almost always – goes on to make lower lows (bear market).
And so, … we are now officially in a bear market!

Professor William Robinson discusses the unprecedented systemic crisis of global capitalism which has brought about a global police state and global civil war. Years of turmoil are ahead of us as a crisis of chronic stagnation (over-accumulation) and state legitimacy has led to extreme repression in the face of acute inequality. The global economy and society has been militarized. Professor Robinson says the ruling groups are not omnipotent and are responding to the mass revolt from below. The pandemic allowed the transnational class to consolidate its grip on the global economy and form a Silicon Valley, Wall Street, Pentagon nexus. The pandemic served as a dry run for how digitalization is going to allow greater control over the working class. The transnational elite are united, including in Russia and China, in maximizing profit and keeping a clamp on rebellion from below. However, the global revolt is unprecedented in history and there is reason to be hopeful.

“From The Mouths Of Blobs” is up https://drjohnsblog.substack.com/p/from-the-mouths-of-blobs?s=w
Henry Kissinger, not known for saying things that embarrass him the next week, says that Ukraine should cede territory to Russia in return for peace, and should do so promptly. He says that we live in “a totally new era” in terms of how quickly use of modern weapons could escalate to total destruction, and that we should be mindful of that, and mindful of the firm positions of other parties…
“Negotiations need to begin in the next two months before it creates upheavals and tensions that will not be easily overcome.
Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante.
Pursuing the war beyond that point would not be about the freedom of Ukraine, but a new war against Russia itself,” he said.
Ron Paul asks what the Biden Administration’s Ukraine End-Game might be.
Last week, President Biden signed a massive $40 billion military aid bill for Ukraine. Who cares that inflation is killing the American economy and mothers can’t even get baby formula. For Washington, spending on war and empire always seems to trump America’s interests.
To put this giveaway to Ukraine in perspective: just since late February, the US has provided nearly $60 billion in “assistance” to Ukraine. That is almost half that country’s entire 2020 GDP! …
..Defense Secretary Austin outlined the Administration’s new intention not long ago when he said that the real goal is to weaken Russia…
..There is a reason our Constitution grants war powers to the legislative branch. Forcing Members of the House and Senate to declare the US to be in a state of war also enables them – through the powers of the purse-string – to define the goals of the war and particularly what a victory looks like. That prevents the kind of mission-creep and shifting objectives that have characterized our endless wars in the 21st century – including this current proxy war with Russia.
Pepe Escobar has a good, detailed and broad update again. Here is a little of it:
Ukraine is the Holy Grail of international corruption. That $40 billion can be a game-changer for only two classes of people: First, the US military-industrial complex, and second, a bunch of Ukrainian oligarchs and neo-connish NGOs, that will corner the black market for weapons and humanitarian aid, and then launder the profits in the Cayman Islands.
A quick breakdown of the $40 billion reveals $8.7 billion will go to replenish the US weapons stockpile (thus not going to Ukraine at all); $3.9 billion for USEUCOM (the ‘office’ that dictates military tactics to Kiev); $5 billion for a fuzzy, unspecified “global food supply chain”; $6 billion for actual weapons and “training” to Ukraine; $9 billion in “economic assistance” (which will disappear into selected pockets); and $0.9 billion for refugees.
Moon of Alabama fills in some other details, and also comments that it “feels insane when Henry Kissinger is the only sane voice in the room”.
The UK support to break the Russian blockade of Odesa is fact-checked. Russia is not blockading Odesa. Ukraine mined the harbor. Things like that.

Losing control of the control-narrative.
Struggling to speak coherently, Biden said “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that God willing when it’s over we’ll be stronger.”
“The world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden added.
Biden also claimed he attempted to combat soaring prices by releasing 180 million barrels of oil from emergency stockpiles in late March, but admitted that it hasn’t had any effect.
The EU has put an end to the lingering ambiguity surrounding how EU members can pay for Russian gas without violating sanctions.
Russia has demanded that countries pay for its gas in rubles, although European governments have struggled to find a way to oblige Russia while not running afoul of sanctions. Further complicating matters—until now—was the EU’s lack of clarification on whether such an arrangement would violate the current sanctions.
On Friday, Germany and Italy both told companies that they could open up rubles accounts in order to purchase Russian gas, in line with President Vladimir Putin’s request.
Russia’s request has companies opening up two accounts at Gazprombank; one in euros or U.S. dollars and another in rubles.
The European Union is about to agree on a Russian oil embargo within days, Germany’s Economy Ministry Robert Habeck told media.
“We will reach a breakthrough within days,” Habeck told German ZDF, as quoted by Reuters.
Just a day earlier, Habeck had told the media that Germany was so eager to impose an embargo on Russian oil imports that it was willing to do it without a consensus among all 27 EU members.
Speaking to another German news channel, Habeck said that “If the Commission president says we’re doing this as 26 without Hungary, then that is a path that I would always support,” adding, however, “But I have not yet heard this from the EU.” …
That’s despite the fact that the refinery supplying fuel for the capital Berlin and its surroundings is majority-owned by Russia’s Rosneft and runs on Russian crude. Earlier this month, Shell’s chief executive warned the 233,000-bpd facility would start reducing production as soon as deliveries of Russian crude stop.
Suspending Russian oil imports, Ben van Beurden said, “will probably mean that that refinery will be turned down quite significantly because the incoming logistics are constrained and the refinery is not configured for anything else but Urals.”
The European Union has granted Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Bulgaria temporary exemptions from an embargo, giving them more time to find alternative suppliers.
Viktor Orban just got another huge electoral mandate. Hungarians like their cheap Russian gas and oil. What will Slovakia, the Czechs and Bulgarians decide?
Hungary Declares Wartime State Of Emergency
On Wednesday, Hungary will announce its first measures under the new state of emergency – which Orban began laying groundwork for even before his cabinet’s swearing in ceremony on Tuesday. Besides amending the constitution in order to use his new emergency powers, the 58-year-old leader gave his chief of staff oversight of the country’s intelligence services.
Orban, the EU’s longest serving head of government, is sitting on his fourth consecutive administration following yet another landslide election victory last month. He’s notably clashed with other member nations on a range of issues, including his opposition to an EU ban on Russian oil.

Is Subject #12312982 the Key to Proving Pfizer Vaccine Trial Fraud, The Story of Augusto Roux
Subject # 12312982 in Pfizer study C4591001 is Augusto Roux, a 35-year old lawyer from Buenos Aires, Argentina who volunteered for Pfizer’s stage 3 trial of its COVID-19 vaccine (or whatever you want to call it) in order to protect his mother with emphysema.
(Briefly, this attorney who kept excellent evidentiary records, got pericarditis from the vaccine, got hospitalized, got gaslighted, got his diagnosis falsified, got lied to, had his trial-records falsified by those running the trial, and presents proof all of this fraud.)
There are several layers to the DoD fraud about the vaccine adverse event numbers in active-duty service members. The DoD changed systems in 2021 and wants you to believe that explains everything. It does not, and can be corrected-for. Tessa (Fights Robots) Lena has the story, and a good synopsis.
A DoD Data Fraud? A Conversation with Mathew Crawford
Pfizer has an ironclad defense, a contract with the Dod, exempting the company from every usual requirement and liability:
Pfizer has asked a U.S. court to throw out a lawsuit from a whistleblower who revealed problems at sites that tested Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
Brook Jackson, the whistleblower, alleged in a suit that was unsealed in February that Pfizer and associated parties violated clinical trial regulations and federal laws, including the False Claims Act.
In its motion to dismiss, Pfizer says the regulations don’t apply to its vaccine contract with the U.S. Department of Defense because the agreement was executed under the department’s Other Transaction Authority (OTA), which gives contract holders the ability to skirt many rules and laws that typically apply to contracts.
That means that Jackson’s claim that Pfizer must still comply with the Federal Acquisition Regulations “is simply wrong,” Pfizer said.
Warner Mendenhall, a lawyer who is working on Jackson’s case, said in a recent interview that Pfizer has “clearly not followed federal procurement laws.”
“And now they’re saying, ‘of course we didn’t follow federal procurement laws, we didn’t have to—this was just for a prototype,’” he added.
Mendenhall, who declined an interview request, said lawyers for Jackson are working on figuring out legal ways to counter Pfizer’s argument.
“We may lose on this issue because their contract imposes … none of the normal checks and balances on quality control and consumer protection that we fought for decades in this country,” he said.
”Amyloid” is globs of useless protein clogging up cells and organs. It has been seen in COVID, yes, but it has been seen a LOT in cases of mRNA vaccine adverse reactions, characterized by continuous production of spike protein in the vaccine-recipients. The amyloid clogging up organs like heart, kidneys, lungs and brain appears to be spike-protein. I saw that hypothesis presented earlier this year. This clinches it, but the researchers don’t exactly say those words.
In patients with serious and long-term COVID-19, disrupted blood coagulation has often been observed. Now, researchers at Linköping University (LiU), Sweden, have discovered that the body’s immune system can affect the spike protein on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, leading to the production of a misfolded spike protein called amyloid. The discovery of a possible connection between harmful amyloid production and symptoms of COVID-19 has now been published in the Journal of American Chemical Society…
Using computer simulations, the researchers discovered that the coronavirus’ spike protein contained seven different sequences which could potentially produce amyloid. Three of the seven sequences met the researchers’ criteria for being counted as amyloid-producing sequences when experimentally tested. They produced, among other things, so-called fibrils, which look like long threads when examined under an electron microscope…
“We have never seen such perfect, but scary, fibrils as these ones from the amyloid-producing SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and pieces thereof. The fibrils starting from the full-sized spike protein branched out like limbs on a body. Amyloids don’t usually branch out like that. We believe that it is due to the characteristics of the spike protein”, says Per Hammarström, professor at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM) at Linköping University.May 25, 2022 at 2:39 am #108442my parents said knowParticipant
“Trial”, not “trail”… anyways.
Why doesn’t the Scitech article ask if the “vaccine” spike also causes amyloidosis?
So if I got this right, Pfizer basically says it committed fraud but it’s okay because they were legally allowed [Nay! urged, begged] to do so?
My rhyme above came out of so many dem and rep callers on cspan this morning who think ww3 would fine, as long as “democracy” is preserved (in Ukraine, in Taiwan…) Perhaps they hear the rumors that there may be hidden downsides to the “safe and effective vaccine” they all took? Their outlook on the future is suicidally delusional. Hey! Who doesn’t have World War on their bucket list?
But that’s okay because strategic ambiguity is all the rage. As Deagel said- it wouldn’t look like suicide…
