Woo-wee, that was a close call, huh? But remind me: what was the war supposedly about? Protecting Ukraine’s hallowed border? Bwahahahaha…! Borders? We don’t care about no steenkin’ borders (especially our own border). Upholding the sacred honor of NATO? Really? Who exactly would be punished if the US tries to shut down the Nord Stream-2 pipeline that will send much-needed Russian natgas to gasless Germany? (Did you guess our NATO ally, Germany?) Would Germany suddenly discover that the pipeline is none of America’s business? I think so.

Anyway, what’s the beef in Ukraine? Its easternmost Donbas region has rebelled against administration by Kiev. At America’s direction, Kiev harasses the majority ethnic Russian population there with US-made weaponry. Yet Ukraine’s president Zelensky claims he doesn’t want to antagonize Russia, and certainly wants his much-stomped-upon country — the doormat of Europe — to not get stomped-on all over again in any hypothetical war. Ukraine is already an economic basket-case, supported only by CIA-sponsored grifting operations.

Enter Monsieur Macron of France. After two years of antagonizing his countrymen with lockdowns and put-downs, he needs a boost for the national election forthcoming in April. So, he has heroically sued Mr. Putin of Russia for a Ukraine “ceasefire.” Note: the Russians haven’t fired. Anyway, that opened the way for a proposed “summit” meeting between “Joe Biden” and Mr. Putin — when the Russians feel like it. They’re playing it a little coy for the moment, letting the West twist slowly, slowly in the wind. If a summit does happen, what will the two summiteers talk about? Mr. Putin will reiterate that the US and NATO made a solemn promise (in writing) to not expand NATO along Russia’s borderland in 1990 when the Soviet Union fell apart, and y’all reneged on that… and now it stops with Ukraine… really… got it?

“Joe Biden” will not have a coherent response. Maybe he’ll want to talk ice cream flavors or dogs. He is, as the Russians say, not negotiation-worthy, though he can be trotted out for photo ops. But “Joe Biden” needs a big win so he can brag on something in his State of the Union address. His Democratic Party is looking every day more and more like some hell-born spawn of Satan bent on wrecking what’s left of the old USA. Everything they’ve done since 2016 has degraded the life of the nation — weaponizing the “Intel Community,” queering a national election, besetting the people with race-and-gender mindfuckery, and inflicting the deadly “vaccines” on the population to “fix” the Fauci-created Covid-19 crisis. Never has the country seen a president so obviously incompetent and unpopular. The people backstage running him like an animatronic automaton are in a panic.

By default, then, the summit meeting will be game-set-and-match, Mr. Putin, only both parties will pretend that it’s some kind of moral victory for “JB,” while Russia gets exactly the terms it seeks: Nord Stream-2 will be completed and Germany will get natgas; there will be no additional stupid sanctions and get rid of the old ones; and the US will close up its CIA shop in Kiev and quit all the pointless antagonism. There will be peace in that corner of the world. And then, on cue, the West’s financial system will implode.

Yes, that’s what is actually going on in the background. That roar you hear is bad credit whooshing out of the banks. It looks like we’re going to get both a ripping inflation and a collapse of equities and assets all at once — with a side-dish of disappearing livelihoods, vaporizing pensions, and sinking standards-of-living. One surmises that all the meshugas over Ukraine was designed as a distraction from the financial disorders now at hand. The news media has faithfully played the Ukraine story to the max while ignoring the growing disarray in North America.

The Toronto Star barely even reported today on the weekend dispersion of truckers in Ottawa — like it never happened… a kind of national hallucination. The big rigs are gone from the streets around Parliament Hill, but one suspects the action isn’t over. Mr. Trudeau’s stupid vaxx mandates are still in place and every passing day more is known about their inefficacy and ghastly after-effects. Nor has the national legislature of Canada voted, as required, in support of the Emergencies Act — meaning that the financial punishment inflicted on the truckers and their supporters was arguably illegal.

Down here in the Land of the Free our truckers are marshaling for the Great US Trucker Convoy of 2022 outside of Barstow, California, to proceed eastward-ho Wednesday morning for our nation’s capital. The notorious fences are back up around the Capitol building. No doubt, the feds will try to shut down the bridges across the Potomac, but there are plenty of back doors into the District. Will “Joe Biden” resort to the same financial intimidation tactics that Mr. Trudeau pulled on his truckers — go after their bank accounts and confiscate assets? Let’s hope the US truckers learned that lesson from the Great White North and have made other arrangements. What if the DC police attempt an Ottawa-style beat-down against our badass truckers? To paraphrase the old American folk song: I wouldn’t want to be them on that dreadful day….

    “CIA-sponsored grifting operations.” – How does that work? Do they go “Mr. Spy, I’d like some grift please?”

    • Beryl of Oyl February 21, 2022 at 10:02 am #

      Probably depends on who they are asking. They’d need to use the word for grift in the language of the person they were requesting it from.

      • Penelope Dreadful February 21, 2022 at 10:06 am #

        I think the Ukrainian word for grift is “hunterisky”. . . 🙂

          After WWII, America was the strongest man standing and took total advantage of the position to utilize Economic Warfare to subjugate as much of the world as possible. Get ’em hooked on a diet of US Dollars and then own ’em. The tactic works around the globe and on all of the wage slaves right here in the good old US of A. I personally know a number of US military personnel that distributed pallet loads of greenbacks throughout areas of operations over the course of the last two decades to further that agenda.

          The American public will always grovel for greenbacks, but when the countries of the world decide that it is actually as worthless as it has become, why then it will be America’s turn in the barrel. Soon I think, soon.

            Justin Trudeau, with the full support of the Liberal/NDP majority announced the implementation of the Emergency Measures Act, inflaming the Western provinces who are adamantly opposed to this federal over-reach. There’s no way around it. Canadians are headed to divorce court and the ruling Liberals/NDP don’t care at all. The cops have already begun roughing up anyone they think might be sympathizers in Ottawa, the government already admitted they have been monitoring 33 million cell phone users, allegedly to keep track of coronavirus transmission, and citizens bank accounts have been arbitrarily seized for the crime of making donations of as little as twenty dollars to truckers’ convoy. There’s no way out of this mess now because refuses to either step down or tone down his rhetoric. A Conservative MP whose parents were Holocaust survivors was accused of being a Nazi sympathizer by the PM for defending the truckers’ convoy. Meanwhile, our national media continues to rachet up the temperature with their vicious attacks on anyone opposed to the Trudeau dictatorship.

            The US dollar is valued on the exchanges, not in absolute terms, but as compared to a given basket of currencies. US military and intelligence have these countries under their control, so the relative value of the dollar is really just a political machination. (This is why the US must spend 40% of the world’s total military budget. )
            Gold Could reflect absolute value, which is why the price is tightly and artificially controlled.

            ? to all you clusterfuckers out there. And thanks mr. k for all the excellent wordsmithing.

          • Walter B February 22, 2022 at 8:50 am #

            Will the dollar, or any other major fiat currency ever collapse or lose all of their value? Maybe not. As long as human beings allow themselves to be controlled and dominated by currencies, fiat will remain valuable to those that print them up for free.

            What has already lost almost all of its value are human lives as people have become worthless pawns of the masters that rule them. They will continue to become even more worthless as AI and robots take over the workplaces that allowed humans to “earn” a living. With the decimation of national borders, low level workers will continue to be available to the masters to do the menial tasks that still remain for slave wages and living conditions, because the migrants will still be better off then where they came from.

            The Canadian twerp is paving the way for the total de-humanization of what used to be the working class. Once the vocal opposition is neutralized by cutting off their access to income it is just a matter of time before they are rounded up, one by one in the middle of the night and carted off for disposal.

            I am beginning to think that those conspiracy theories of government stockpiling of guillotines and coffins might not be theories after all. They hate us and want us dead if we do not beg for their boots on our necks. Good luck, the world grows more interesting with every passing day.

      This is where Putin is lightyears ahead of the US Deep State. He’s already telegraphed his next two moves:

      1) Present conclusive evidence to the UNSC of CIA involvement in genocide in the breakaway republics. This provides the justification for defending Eastern Ukraine from the neo-Nazis in Kiev as well as putting the US is geo-political defense mode.

      2) Use his amassed forces in Belarus to move on Kiev in response to ‘aggression’ when Zolenskyy sends his army in to put down the rebellion.

      Then he’ll just sit back and watch the NATO strap-hangers backstab other member states as the weak coalition supporting sanctions implodes.

      It’s business and China won’t cut off its nose to spite its face. What Russia should have done was to take back Ukraine along with Crimea back when warmonger Victoria Nuland stirred the pot with her color revolution.

      What she and the rest of the warmongers back in DC did was light a bag of dog shit on Russia front door. They rang their doorbell and watched as Russia tried to stomp out the lit bag with their foot. That’s when Russia realized it was all a prank.

      • Penelope Dreadful February 21, 2022 at 10:20 am #

            China appears like a unified monolith to the West because most of us don’t speak Mandarin and our MSM refuses to report on China due to lack of access and the fact wide swaths of the MSM are financially tied to China.

            A bit of research and one can find that China has serious issues with demographics, clean water, arable land, and the immense amount of wealth people have plunged into worthless ghost city properties.

            There are also reports that Xi’s reign is not as unified as it appears, and that he faces internal competition from the Jiang Zemin/Shanghai factions.

          • TaxDonkey February 21, 2022 at 11:15 am #

            China’s only hope to avoid starvation and collapse is to expand outside their borders. Maybe they can get all of us to inject ourselves with poison and just die already so there will be more room for them in North America.

            In Canada, the government has used the crisis as a pretext to monitor financial transactions and freeze assets. (Perhaps they have been doing this all along, but now they boldly announce it).

            That genie will not go back into the bottle in Canada, even if everything magically resolved itself and COVID was declared dead and all sides agreed.

            And the US government probably has that power and more. Even if they mess up half the time, that still means mischief for people in the US government’s sights. Account hiccups, IRS issues, no fly list.

            So to the extent possible, while inconvenient, people need to use cash or barter or gold/silver as much as possible, and shift out of financial assets as much as possible as early as possible.

            Today’s financial assets will be digitized with purposes and expiration dates—at least that’s what the WEF wants.

            The parallels between Hitler and Turdeau are uncanny. Both about 30-32% of the vote in the last election; both demonized others as disease bearing.

            One different parallel : the Spanish Civil War was a dress rehearsal for German weapons; Canada is a dress rehearsal for how to establish a de facto dictatorship in Western country with the veneer of democratically elected government.

            Bluedog, China is a massive net importer of BOTH food and energy. A harsh double whammy. Their drinking water for 1.4 billion people is trashed. Yes, the US is in bad shape, nobody is arguing that we’re not. But from an ecological overshoot standpoint, it seems like China is even worse. They’ll have to expand their borders in order to reign supreme.

            One thing that is rarely mentioned when labeling Ukraine as that little, dysfunctional country grafted onto the Big Bear is that in terms of land area Ukraine is large compared to countries like France or Italy. In spite of rampant corruption, a CIA coup overthrowing a corrupt but elected government, and continual CIA/NATO interference it is still the fourth largest grain producer on the planet. Factor that into a China unable to supply enough food to support its population or enough water to expand its agriculture and another picture begins to emerge.

            The Ukrainian army has a life expectancy in weeks if the full strength of the Russian military were brought to bear against it. Objectively Russia has little need for more land: what they need are more Russian babies to populate the huge country they already have. Putin has worked diplomatically for years to defuse and neutralize the threat US/NATO missiles pose if sited five minutes from Moscow. Perhaps the internal political support for diplomacy has worn thin— or perhaps Putin has just grown tired of being lied to and attacked by economic warfare and decided that now is the time to put an end to the festering sore on its southern flank.

            From the Russian/Chinese perspective another benefit of getting on with it, putting and end to the ten year war and expelling the CIA mercenaries is apparent. When push comes to shove the US has already signaled what there response will be—- run with their tails between their legs as they did in Afghanistan. Perhaps the Kiev Nazis can find a suitable new home in Fascist Canada.

            With the Russian military to provide order and stability and Chinese capital to supply new combines and irrigation systems Ukraine could once again become the breadbasket of Europe (or China) Relying upon Argentina as the third leg of the grain highway is risky at best. The country has a long history of political instability and serving as the IMF’s money laundering bitch. It will take some time before it can become a reliable stop on the Silk Road.

            Looking further down the road at global food supplies, there is no guarantee that the American Great Plains can continue to supply the world. It sits on top of an eons-old underground lake (the Ogallala Aquifer) that is rapidly being pumped dry. The regional climate is in the first stages of a cyclical drought, the duration of which cannot be predicted. All the more reason to have reliable supplies of basic food grains spread over geographical regions.

        It’s business until it’s not anymore. What do you do when your business “partner” (aka, shakedown artist) becomes insolvent and destitute and in his misery begins threatening you physically? You might start by curb stomping him but good and leaving him bleeding in the gutter to consider his options as his one and only warning. Russia, China, and the rest of Asia are rapidly becoming self-sufficient and reasonably prosperous, especially given the giant albatross that is the US deadbeat still hanging around their necks. The last part of that equation isn’t going to hold forever.

          In a global collapse situation, the US could hypothetically do a better job feeding itself than could China. This, of course assumes that the US doesn’t commit suicide before that time.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 21, 2022 at 11:34 am #

            The US has more food potential and a smaller population, for sure. But the end effect may not be much different. Americans eat more and are “softer” than the Chinese. The are also better armed. And the notion the “we are Americans” has been undermined in many areas by diversity.

            So internally, things could unravel in the US—and that’s absent an external shock.

            Things would unravel in China too—but the still have tens of millions of subsistence farmers. They don’t have a common Chinese identity, which is a problem for them.

            Basically, the world is a fragile place. The more mankind progresses, the more fragile that progress is. Entropy works against us..

            The factors at play in determining a nation’s ability to feed itself extend far beyond a calculation of current productivity and amount of land in cultivation.

            Advanced Technology agricultural production system.

            Agriculture in the USA is highly dependent upon fertilizers, irrigation, pesticides, genetically engineered seeds and million dollar tractors and harvesters. As a result productivity per worker is extremely high compared to traditional forms of agriculture. (Although productivity per acre may actually be lower.) Take away any one of these factors and the entire system is subject to collapse. Raise interest rates to 12% as they were during the Regan era, and farmers (or the corporations that have replaced them) can no longer afford to buy the fertilizers and chemicals upon which their productivity depends. The days of buying a new combine every year and a single man farming larger and larger plots of land are over.

            No amount of praying can bring rain if the wandering jet stream diverts it elsewhere. The US Great Plains have turned
            into a Dust Bowl in the past, and the developing cycle points in that direction again. The largest supercomputer can’t predict if the cyclical nature of drought is a temporary event or a century long pattern. Drilling deeper and deeper into aquifers that were filled over millions of years is an obvious dead end as the energy cost of pumping water comes to exceed the benefit of using the last drop of water.

            Feudal/ Peasant Agricultural Systems

            Agricultural systems that rely upon human or animal labor are inherently more resilient. Instead of relying upon one genetically engineered seed stock owned by a mega-corporation there may be as many as a hundred varieties of potato nurtured by generations of farmers. When a fungus attacks one variety, there always exists the possibility of trading a goat or daughter to a farmer in the neighboring valley for seeds that are resistant and allow farming to continue. Whereas in a crisis of a technology based agricultural system and entire nation or even a continent may suddenly find itself without potatoes.

            Life under peasant agriculture is never easy. When the last potato is gone, the last goat eaten, and the bark eaten off the barren fruit trees, the farmer and his family starve. That is as it always been ever since we abandoned the hunter-gather nomadic life style with it’s self-limiting population control. But peasant agriculture survives even something as universal as the Black Death.

            I’m not sure the same can be said by technology that has abandoned any link to the natural world and learned how to create Nuclear Winter.

        Here is what I would do, if I was Putin and could get away with it:

        It’s a big lift, but I would

        Invade Ukraine move Russian troops within 200 km of the Polish border—precisely to where the internationally recognized Polish/USSR border was between 1919/22 and 1939.

        Annex the ethnic Russian parts of Ukraine ( that is easy)

        Proclaim that Russia supports the return of illegally seized Polish territory to Polish control, but Poland must not put any bases in the former Ukraine territory,

        Leave a rump Ukrainian state around Kiev, on the condition that it will be a demilitarized; like Finland was; otherwise it will be a De Facto Russian state.

            Russia will never be accepted by the west, for many reasons. One is that Russians are nominally Eastern Orthodox.

            But the west (Europe/Germany) needs Russian energy, so they cannot treat Russia like North Korea.

            I think realpolitik trumps international law.

            This crisis was created by a West that, on the surface, does not respect Russia. The West wants Putin out, replaced by a sycophant. Something like Greece, where the west pulls the strings, and the Greek ruling class in particular and Greeks in general are helpless.

            To remove Putin, , the West uses false arguments like democracy.

            Russia’s other heresy, to the WEF, besides not being Godless, is that Russia is not yoked by the dollar denominated (today) system, so the WEF can’t control a nuclear power.

            That is ironic, since the globalists helped nurture and create the USSR, and helped it acquire nukes, to help bleed America slowly with a huge waste of “defense”.

            Turkey invaded Cyprus illegally. The Russians have legitimate claims. They should take whatever they feel they can get away with.

            The West will never help.

            Russia’s long term goal is to preserve its security. Long term, China is their biggest threat, but pivoting to Europe will just weaken Russia. China needs Russia and vice versa, and China respects the Russians nukes.

            Just imo.

          The US and other NATO countries already abandoned Kiev like rats from a sinking ship.
          They stripped their embassies, burned papers and smashed computers, then hightailed it to the more proper Nazi capital of Lviv, where they feel quite at home.

            Paula

            I was wrong. I recently stated what seemed obvious— that the Ukraine armed forces would last only weeks if confronted by the full Russian army. Turns out that it only took a couple of days before photos of Russian soldiers and “retired” Ukrainian soldiers literally dancing together began to emerge.

            US “Intelligence” analysts are no doubt pouring over images of the Afghanistan withdrawal for lessons in how to manage a retreat of American “advisors” and mercenaries. Never mind, you are no longer in charge. It’s time to find a home in the Great White North of Canada for your loyal Ukrainian Nazi allies while Boy Brown Shirt is still in Ottawa.

            If you want to think a week or two ahead, consider how to respond when the Polish NATO forces fail to run as is the American MO? Or somebody with access to the Red Button on some of the weapons that the US MIC has sold to that country launches one against Russia?

            I doubt if the Chinese assault on Taiwan will be as painless as the Russian blitzkrieg against Ukraine. But it may not last long either, as so many of the key electronic components in the US arsenal are Chinese supplied—.

            Meanwhile the USA is guided by the managers of the Biden Hologram. If it no longer responds to chemical stimulation, waiting in the wings is the Cackling Ho. Obama, what were you thinking when you pulled her out of the dumpster of failed presidential hopefuls, injected money, and thrust her back into the race? The only candidate in the entire arsenal of midgets and perverts that stood a chance of being as hated as Hillary. After all as you said, “Never underestimate the ability of Joe Biden to fuck things up.”

        • Islander February 21, 2022 at 3:16 pm #

          Socrates,

          Russia has been very consistent in its stance that its long-term security is best ensured by an international legal framework of agreements and treaties that nations STICK TO.

          Not the USA’s unilaterally dictated “rule of law.”

          Russia’s push to upgrade the level of discourse, so to speak, would be completely undermined by any stupid territorial grabbing unless there were a very clear danger to Russian people and a total failure of diplomacy. Even in the fact of diplomatic turds such as Blinken, Russia will keep giving him and the USA a chance, because Russia knows what war is. unlike Stinkin Blinken, Nuland, & Co.

          It doesn’t matter whether Russia is “accepted” by the West or not. That is IMO silly psychobabble. These kinds of ideas are not how a great nation is run. Certainly not by someone as smart as VVP.

          The whole idea of being “accepted” by the West is ludicrous. China doesn’t give a flyin fuck whether the West “accepts” it or not. That projection by western “leaders” is one reason why they didn’t see “China” coming. The fools. They though China wanted to be like them. Ha ha ha. China is a, what, 3,000-year-old culture. The “West” is a bunch of barbarians who tried for a couple of centuries to get control of Chinese society via opium, tried to rape it of its culture by destroying its greatest physical achievements (Yuan Garden; Forbidden City) and finally were cast out by Mao.

          The West has no way to grasp the level of pain both Russia and China, and their people, have endured because of “the West” either trying to “civilize” their people and their nations or just trying to bring them to heal so that they could steal at will.

          The current game is about Russia’s resources. The West will not win. Too bad for the West. If push comes to shove, Putin will push the nuclear button before the USA will ever get its claws on Russia.
          Or China, I suspect.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 21, 2022 at 5:59 pm #

            Islander (NY?)

            OK, Russia’s security “….ensured by an international legal framework of agreements and treaties that nations STICK TO”

            But they don’t stick to agreements, signed or not, unless it suits them. And this is typical.

            The US implicitly agreed not to expand NATO. It did.

            The US abrogated the ABM treaty, did it not?

            The Communists and USSR were generally bad news, usually worse than the Americans.

            Once the USSR imploded, there is not “worse”, or dangerous country than the US government–which serves as the primary military tool of the New World Order.

            There is also the practical question of money–and a lot of it, going to the military-industrial complex. They need an enemy to keep the contracts going–and they need to mix it up.

            You are correct, Russians know war first-hand. Americans do not, (though those living in Chicago’s south side, Baltimore, and other similar cities are more likely to be killed than people in some hot war zones.)

            The US is more likely to enter into treaties and abide by them when conditions on the ground make it prudent.

            I think war should be a last resort.

            But it’s wrong for the Russians in Ukraine to suffer. It is also politically damaging to Putin, who on track to be Russia’s best leader since Catherine the Great, perhaps Peter the Great.

            I don’t trust our news media, because the infotainment is biased and erroneous. I don’t have the time or inclination to do my due diligence.

            Thus, I tacitly agree with the Russians and Putin on this matter, based on my general knowledge of history and real life.

            If the Ukranians are so western leaning, let them be part of Poland in the West, and let Russia have the eastern 2/3.

          • Paula D February 21, 2022 at 8:25 pm #

            Agree with what you say, Islander, except that the US proclaims it adheres to the ”rule of law”.
            They actually say that their unilaterally dictated proclamations are the ”rules based order”.
            They don’t need no stinkin’ international law!
            He who has the bombs makes the rules!
            Russia announcing that they will protect the people of Donbass from the UkriNazis is a game-changer, for sure.
            We’ll see what happens to the Rules Makers now.. Guess they’ll strut around the board, kick over the pieces and announce they won?

      • Anon1970 February 22, 2022 at 8:31 pm #

        I don’t think Russia wanted all of Ukraine. It took back Crimea, with its only warm water port (Sevastopol) on the Black Sea. The two breakaway sections of Ukraine will now be firmly in the Russian orbit. Now that the startup of Nordstream 2 has been indefinitely delayed, I wonder how much economic pain Germany is willing to tolerate before it tells the US to butt out.

      Half the housing markets cash for homes business is going to Chinese investors who are literally out pricing Americans from buying homes in their own country.

          Have a look at the highlights of the latest GDP numbers.

          BEA data—including GDP, personal income, the balance of payments, foreign direct investment, the input -output accounts, and regional economic data—are available at http://www.bea.gov. E-mail alerts are also available.
          The “advance” estimate of GDP for the fourth quarter of 2021 will be released on January 27, 2022.

          Gross Domestic Product (Third Estimate),
          Corporate Profits (Revised Estimate),
          and GDP by Industry, Third Quarter 2021
          Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 2.3 percent in the third quarter of
          2021, following an increase of 6.7 percent in the second quarter. The increase was revised up 0.2
          percentage point from the “second” estimate released in November. The deceleration in real GDP in the
          third quarter was led by a slowdown in consumer spending. A resurgence of COVID-19 cases resulted in
          new restrictions and delays in the reopening of establishments in some parts of the country. In the third
          quarter, government assistance payments in the form of forgivable loans to businesses, grants to state
          and local governments, and social benefits to households all decreased. For more details, including
          source data, refer to the Technical Note and Federal Recovery Programs and BEA Statistics.
          GDP highlights
          The third quarter increase in real GDP reflected increases in inventory investment, consumer spending,
          state and local government spending, and business investment that were partly offset by decreases in
          exports, housing investment, and federal government spending. Imports, which are a subtraction in the
          calculation of GDP, increased.
          • The increase in inventory investment
          primarily reflected increases in wholesale
          trade (led by nondurable goods industries)
          and retail trade (led by motor vehicle and
          parts dealers).
          • The increase in consumer spending
          reflected an increase in services, led by
          “other” services (mostly international
          travel), transportation services, and food
          services and accommodations. Consumer
          spending for goods decreased (led by
          motor vehicles and parts).
          • The increase in state and local government
          spending primarily reflected an increase in
          compensation of state and local
          government employees (notably, education).
          • The decrease in exports reflected decreases in both goods (led by foods, feeds, and beverages) and
          services (led by charges for the use of intellectual property). The increase in imports reflected an
          increase in services, primarily foreign travel by U.S. residents.
          • The decrease in housing investment primarily reflected declines in improvements and new single-
          family structures

        What gets me is when the trannies complain about getting killed in large numbers. But, they never mention what they are doing when they get killed, which I surmise is pretty much sex work. And I think that guys who want to hook up with trannies are probably pretty freaky to begin with, so that is a dangerous road that they are traveling down to start with. But they imply that it is society which is offing them, when it is more likely their own customers doing it.

        • benr February 21, 2022 at 12:03 pm #

          More to the point they are trying to sell themselves as females and when the clothes come off the truth gets revealed and customers tend to get really angry especially if they started some sex act and figured it out after starting.
          Some Sea stories are around with the above scenario, and it always ends with the Tranny getting the crap beat out of them or worse.

        • Paula D February 21, 2022 at 12:05 pm #

          They don’t get killed in large numbers, that is a lie.
          Unfortunately, lies repeated often become excepted as truth.
          I remember a couple of years ago, two trannies were fighting over a wig and one stabbed the other one to death.
          Oh, shit, I thought, in a couple of months on Trans Remembrance Day, we’ll all be lighting candles and mourning the tragic death of this poor oppressed soul, gone too soon.

    Speaking of those heroic truckers, if you haven’t seen this piece already you just have to read it:

    “When the truckers rolled their big rigs, which weigh about 35,000 pounds, up to the political elite’s doorstep, engaged their parking brakes (or removed their wheels entirely), and refused to leave until their concerns were addressed, this was like dropping a very solid boulder of reality in the Virtuals’ front lawn and daring them to remove it without assistance. And because the Virtuals do not yet actually have the Jedi powers to move things with their minds, the truckers effectively called their bluff on who ultimately has control over the world.”

The notion of “freedom” was historically and remains intertwined with Whiteness, as historian Tyler Stovall has argued. The belief that one’s entitlement to freedom is a key component of White supremacy. This explains why the Freedom Convoy members see themselves as entitled to freedom, no matter the public health consequences to those around them.

      They know better than to turn it into a violent shithole, which would draw the attention of the American government against them, leading to even more of a crackdown on their drug tunnels and transport routes.

      That’s why they keep their street gun battles, bodies hung from bridges, murdering of enemies, reporters, cops, and politicians in Juarez, which is right over the border.

      These are the murder rates for Juarez, but they probably don’t account for the bodies chopped up, disolved in acid, buried in the desert, and disappeared by the cartel.

          loooong ago I read a LA Times tale, went like this,

          the severed head appeared in a park [san fran?].

          prior to the head the body [headless] was left by a tree.
          someone who know african ‘stuff’ said ‘in 10 days the killer will place the head there’.

          the popo ignored this and bingo, 10 days later the head was placed there.

      I think you mean “abetted by the US government” backing their favored drug lords.
      It all started after Mexico allowed the US back in, especially after NAFTA.
      The more the US fights drugs, the more drugs flow. And do not forget the Fast and Furious campaign to get more guns flowing.
      Ask the Columbians how allowing the US in to “fight drugs” works out for that purpose.

        “I wouldn’t want to be them on that dreadful day….” Does “them” here refer to the Truckers or the Police? I’d say the truckers who have already been labeled violent Nazi Terrorists so the police will not feel guilty about killing their fellow citizens. The U.S. Government has already learned from the Canadians so this copycat convoy will be dealt with more efficiently. A convoy seems like a bad idea. If people who drive through the major metropolitan areas just take a break on the interstates or beltways during rush hours. Block a lane for 5 minutes and move on to protest the COVID madness, the government won’t be able to concentrate forces on protesters. With multiple simultaneous backups convalescing the authorities won’t be able to distinguish the sources from the victims. The sources have the mechanical/electrical problem plausible deniability if they accidentally stop their vehicles in view of the surveillance cameras.

      And… there’s Churchill whispering in Franklin’s ear not to trust the Soviet from Georgia. Trustworthy Winston?

      So who stirs the pot? The Brits can’t let the Russians unite with the Germans. Play “the Colonies ” for all they can to keep “the Continent” unbalanced which works to their benefit.

      • thirdcoastlegend February 21, 2022 at 12:53 pm #

        The reality that Germany foolishly shut down many of its nuclear and coal power plants combined with the physical reality that Russia has by far the largest natural gas reserves on Earth means that a Russo-German alliance is inevitable.

        Germany still has a lot of high-tech industry, knowledge, and human capital that would be very valuable to the Russians going forward.

        The UK and US refuse to permit that, thus WW3 may also be inevitable.

    George Washington wrote this in his 1796 Farewell Address which applies to USA-Ukraine:

    So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.

        Look at WW1, created as a war between alliances.

        Remember Washington also warned against political parties inside the US. Favoritism between ethnocentric groups divides instead of unites.

        How about this? The presence of political parties here have made it necessary to create a unifying event every twenty years or so to keep the states together with a common cause.

        War! To justify war, you have to create an enemy. To create an enemy, you have to play favorites.

      Yes, good stuff. World War One, Two, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq were all against the principle Washington lays down. Our super patriots are ignoramuses, almost to a man.

      The essential wars were the ones Washington fought in: Against the Indians, the French, and the British. Those were essential in founding the United States.

    At Dale Carnegie sales training years ago, I learned to dig a hole for the customers/prospects, and then throw them a rope. Get good at it, and you’ll be rich, kid.

    Wikipedia — Racketeering is a type of organized crime in which the perpetrators set up a coercive, fraudulent, extortionary, or otherwise illegal coordinated scheme or operation to repeatedly or consistently collect money or other profit.

    Rackets are basically all we got, everywhere. Right now, Putin’s protection racket is apparently tight and focused, bristling with lots and lots of pointy things that nobody wants to confront. Looks like he kinda knows what he’s doing.

    Here in the West, the racketeers are working overtime digging holes and throwing ropes. But it feels like every day now another racket/racketeer is exposed, and soon nobody will ever again believe in those holes they’re pushing, so it all just evaporates — the Metaverse dissolves.

    “Joe Biden” desperately needs a bonafide threat to keep the rackets going. Canada is a test run for tyranny. When nobody believes yer bullshit, yer finished, or you turn tyrant. I’m sick and tired of the rackets. I won’t stand for tyranny. What else we got?

      JTinMD: “I’m sick and tired of the rackets. I won’t stand for tyranny. What else we got?”

      Nothing.

      The biggest racket is U.S Politics.

      Trump was elected by SOME precisely because he was a threat to BOTH parties, and to the scheme. He threatened to pull the curtain down on the entire kabuki theater. Many welcomed this bull in the Uniparty china shop. Implode it all, please.

      This is also why both parties and the “deep state” institutionalized bureaucra-ats/cies worked so diligently to remove him. He was indeed a threat to the country. To the status quo. To the institutionalized deceit. To the national intelligence and police service hegemony, both nothing more than proxies for the utmost echelon of the elite ranks.
      To the compromised and infiltrated fourth estate. “Fake news!” You don’t say?

      He did expose much of it in his own bungling way. Often clueless to the service he was providing the American people. Letting them know how dirty, desperate and how scorched-earth they are willing to go to maintain control. Clumsily railroaded by social media and network interviewers. McConnell, a career politician since 1984, made it a point to act against him. His career of working across the aisle… to maintain THEIR careers was in jeopardy. Only the dimmest of wits in a dimwit Bourbon drenched state kept him in power.

      This is why they will do anything to keep a populist from returning to the office.

      This is why, now, lesser “democracies” and commonwealth countries are laying the groundwork for normative tyranny.

          The others are just playing a part to placate their “constituents”.

          Lindsey Graham is one such senator. Performing enough theater, speaking enough lines, to appeal to the Trump leaning faction of his constituency.
          To make it appear that he supports their causes.
          That he supported Trump.

          He supports only himself.
          Being in power.

          He has no shame in admitting this.
          And voters have no shame in ignoring this, although knowing better.

    C’mon you guys, how could you not “connect the dots” to realization that the Covid “thing” was just one tier of a multitiered psych-op now deployed by decades by China. Can’t you weigh the population equation? China ends up better off with reduction of its population to one fifth as opposed to how devastated such reduction would be to China’s competitors.

    It has been claimed that Her COVID-infected Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, was previously fully vaccinated and boosted with safe and effective, untested, experimental, gene modifying mRNA COVID drugs. And it is also claimed that COVID-infected Prince Charles and Camilla were also max vaxed.

    This situation should be for problem Big Pharma and governments. But it really isn’t because the official rebuttal is: “Their COVID infections would be much worse if they had not been fully vaccinated.”

    On the other hand, do those in power actually receive genuine COVID drug injections? Whatever. It appears that COVID hysteria is now being replaced with war hysteria.

    Crusher Muldoon was talking about the j-e-w-s and quoted “For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house” which indicates an identity issue since the verse says nothing of j-e-w-s.

    Whereupon Jarek attempting to clear things up saying, “No since Paul was sent to the Gentiles.”

    Jews were Israelites but not all Israelies are Jews. Both nations were sent into dispersion among the Nations [ ethnos-gentiles ]. They lost their names and came to be known by many other monikers.

    • messianicdruid February 21, 2022 at 2:12 pm #

      An example:

      “Most Holy Father, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. It journeyed from Greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Pillars of Hercules, and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage peoples, but nowhere could it be subdued by any people, however barbarous. Thence it came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to its home in the west where it still lives today. The Britons it first drove out, the Picts it utterly destroyed, and, even though very often assailed by the Norwegians, the Danes and the English, it took possession of that home with many victories and untold efforts; and, as the histories of old time bear witness, they have held it free of all servitude ever since. In their kingdom there have reigned one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, the line unbroken by a single foreigner.”

      • Jarek February 21, 2022 at 2:26 pm #

        The Picts weren’t utterly destroyed. The Scots, a couple of Northern Irish clans, invaded and fought them for centuries, in league with the Britons I imagine, finally merging with them with a strategic marriage.

        I thought you had finally put this mythology aside. You were making progress, at last admitting that Whites had to fight the natives to establish America. In other words, not just sail away when told us to get lost. With the help of the mythology, this should have never been an issue for you it would seem.

      Green Alba linked to a similar story last week where the Scottish government is doing exactly the same, withholding data because it could be used by ‘anti-vaxxers’. If the vaccines worked it would not be possible to twist the data in any way, it would speak for itself, which of course it does: the vaccines don’t work.

        I hadn’t heard that in Canada they were/are seizing dogs belonging to truckers! What next?

        He mentions the figures you’re talking about, that the Scottish government doesn’t want us to hear.

        During the 4 weeks to 4 Feb. 22, 478 Scots died with covid on their death certificate – 417 of them (87%) were fully vaxxed.

        So, no more published data. And Sam White’s case has just been dismissed by the police. Nothing to see here. I’m not going to bed happy. I’m going to bed imagining things I’m going to say in future that no-one is going to believe.

          I think that says it all. What on earth happened to us? How did so many people become so utterly stupid and ignorant, from politicians continuing to push these obviously worthless ‘vaccines’, the media censoring any rational debate about them and the average man on the street believing every lie and going along with every last bit of BS from the start: lockdowns, masks, asymptomatic testing and continued jabbing.

          This is the difficult part for me. At the end of the day we deserve everything we’re getting.

          And now this while phenomenon will be transferred to the Russia Russia Russia narrative. It’s started already, in the media and the minds of the mindless masses.

          Do people forget Afghanistan, or the bombing of Iraq into the last century, twice, once on a total and deliberate lie, regime changes or attempted changes in Syria, in Libya… and now all I’m going to hear from my countrymen and the MSM is ‘Russia!’ like they know or care anything for Ukraine.

            I listened to an interview with Mark Crispin Miller today, where he suggested that the Trump election was rigged by the same people who rigged the Biden election, and that the entire point of the Trump election was to create TDS, as a precursor to what we’ve seen over the last two years.
            He pointed out that the Trump people themselves didn’t expect to win and hadn’t prepared a victory speech (I don’t remember – it’s a lifetime ago).

          • Night Owl February 21, 2022 at 6:28 pm #

            Anything is possible, but too many things that came afterward make no logical sense in that context.

            To me Trump’s presidency remains a good thing, despite what has happened since. He exposed much to the masses, but at the same time, as MCM suggests, a psychological experiment in propaganda the likes of which has never been seen traumatised the bovine masses to the point that they now yearn for the transhumanist podlife of the Anal Schwab.

            Without Trump, there would have been no Great Awakening — at least not now. I still cannot fathom what the future will hold if we fail to stop or at least greatly set back this horror show.

            “I still cannot fathom what the future will hold if we fail to stop or at least greatly set back this horror show.”

            I agree. And here in the UK, while Boris is purportedly cancelling restrictions, they’re still hanging on to the surveillance infrastructure (naturally) for the next time (they’ve said so – it isn’t me saying that) and the government ghoul scientists behind the podia are muttering about further and more dangerous variants. It’s endless. Anyone who thinks this hiatus is a return to normal needs their head read. These people don’t mind two steps forward and one step back – in some places anyway – in others the boot remains firmly on the neck.

            France is making much of relaxing restrictions, but it’s only for those with vaxx passes. Those without can’t go anywhere, except to buy food or medicines, although they seem to be able to walk the streets – for now.

            Green Alba I think that Mark Crispin Miller makes a convincing case that the 2016 election was stolen, but I have a different idea as to why.
            Just a month or so before the election, the NY Police confiscated the computer of that pervert Weiner, married to Hillary’s BFF Huma.
            Apparently in a file called “Insurance File” there was a video of a crime against a child (committed by Hillary and Huma) so horrific that it made the officers who saw it vomit.
            They rebelled and threatened to make it public, so TPTB put Trump in as a quick fix.
            Then the cops were suicided.
            And Trump got the full monty attack from the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda, what we fondly call the ”free press”.
            And now here we are, ready to go to war with Russia, exactly where we would have been in 2017 if the Hildebeast had been elected.

            I fail to see the problem with legal immigration. We have been through the process twice, both in Europe and the States.

            A person entering the country legally has already taken a rather large step toward demonstrating their desire to be a productive and supportive member of society.

            It is rather the illegal immigration that should be curbed.

            What is the connection. A corporation deciding to hire someone cheaper than you is simply capitalism.

            I do not condone it across the board, as I fully understand what it means for the individual getting the boot, but I don’t see how one could attack legal immigration as the problem.

            The immigration process is not easy, nor is building a life in a foreign land. I can say from experience that it is a lot harder than finding a new job in your home country.

    Here’s what the Truckers in Canada or here in America need to do and if they will do it, The threat alone will shake the very foundations of our federal government. And the foundations of the Canadian Government.

    And, there’s not one damn thing the US or the Canadian government can do to them. Follow along with me.

    A. Right off the bat they need to designate a spokesman. After they do that, they need to decide what they are going to do pertaining to driving. Making deliveries.

    Decide if they are going to stop, stop ? making deliveries to all federal / state / county buildings / offices / all military bases.

    Or, stop making them nationwide and not Just to governmental offices / military bases. But, making deliveries to all places. ALL, ALL PLACES.

    (my wife and I keep ourselves prepared here where we live in NW Montana at home for 3 months of food / fuel. Meat alone, Lord only knows how many pounds of Elk / Mule Deer / Moose / Antelope /Wild Turkeys. And, in the bottles, ? ?.

    Ducks & Geese. We have 3, full size freezers. Out in one of our garages. And a 8×10 room that holds all the jars of food she Cans. And she absolutely loves to bake.

    So she hasn’t bought a loaf of bread / biscuits/ pies / cakes, In God knows when. she has different flours for baking and she buys them in bulk. One of the places I know of well, is this place. http://www.bobsredmill.com/shop.html )

    This they would have to make a decision on. If it was left up to me??
    I would call the shot on stop all deliveries nationwide. And, not just to governmental buildings / offices / military bases. .

    B. Then they need to pick a DAY / DATE / TIME. WHEN THEY WILL STOP ? STOP ? STOP DRIVING. NATION-WIDE. PARK-IT!

    I would say give the country a 2-week notice so folks can get stocked up. It wouldn’t take long, not very long at all before the government was given a dead-ass-serious-wake-up-call.

    when they will stop driving nationwide. Stop ? stop ? making deliveries of any and all things to either A, ALL FEDERAL / STATE / COUNTY BUILDINGS / OFFICES.

    Or, stop making all deliveries of any and all things. Food, number 1. Fuel, number 2. And then, right on down the line

    AND, ONCE AGAIN, , THERE IS NOT A DAMN THING IN THE WORLD THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN DO TO THEM. TO FORCE THEM TO DRIVE.

    What are you say next the best majority of Americans don’t even know. But the drivers called “Owner Operators”, number in the hundreds of thousands.

    And the number one state that has the most “registered”, Owner Operators is North Dakota. you don’t have to believe me, by all means look it up.

    And the vast majority of “owner—operators”,are long-haul drivers. Not regional. Ergo, they drive Coast—to—Coast. East to West. Vice Versa. And, North to South. And, Vice Versa.

        Your community hospital used to stock about three months’ worth of supplies. Then, administration learned they could save a few pennies with Just in Time ordering. Now it’s a weeks worth of supplies or less.

        • cbeard February 21, 2022 at 6:21 pm #

          Yes the just in time delivery mode is one of the stupidest ideas ever imagined. Critical supplies should be ordered in bulk and warehoused to avoid catastrophic consequences.

          Being a blue collar front line hospital worker, I once worked in hospital stores and we had our warehouse on site in the sub basement. Our supervisor boasted that we could supply the hospital fully for four months. Now, everyday I scramble to find supplies for my unit in the emergency department. I asked the hospital stores stock keeper and they tell me everything arrives by truck, one small disruption and wow chaos descends.

          Our census is always like at 100 to 105%, and yesterday our waiting room breaks more records. I have been on the job almost 41 years now, and never have I seen this.

    Is the implication being made that the events at the Maidan Square in 2014 had no bearing on the people of Donbas. Where is the mention of outlawing the language of an indigineous people? Where is the shelling of the peoples of Donetsk and Luhansk in violation of a United Nations ratified treaty and ceasefire mentioned.

    “Its easternmost Donbas region has rebelled against administration by Kiev.”

    “mindfuckery” indeed.

    The administration installed via coup d’etat organized funded and carried out by a foreign nation?

    People whose very life is in danger from artillery shelling, who have been targeted by inciting scum to go on the rampage are rebelling against an administration? Human beings are just pawns in the game?

She was at her spinning wheel again, trying to wear the diadem while decrying the deplorable Republicans with brass knuckle brazenness.

      The bitch isn’t back – she was never really gone.

      I think the Hildebeast has to be at the helm for war with Russia. Not that she has any agency, she is a puppet like the rest.

      I’ve come to the conclusion that our demagogues are not put in-place to set or even carry out policy. They are put in-place to manipulate our emotions and steer the irrational, emotional tide of the country. Policy has already been determined by the real masters.

      For example:

      Trump’s job was to sow division, to prepare the ground for “Covid”, as well as pitting us against each other and leading to further demonization of “the Deplorables”. Consider how the agenda of terrorist groups like Antifa and Burn, Loot ‘n’ Murder was propelled forward as a reaction to “Trump”.

      The Big Guy’s job is to sow confusion. In the midst of the swirling tumult we cling in desperation to whomever we “trust”. Forget facts and reason, we navigate by feelz now.

      The Hildebeast’s job will be to sow hysteria. Hysteria that screams for death and destruction to be rained down upon the evil-doers outside, but especially inside, our borders.

      • tucsonspur February 21, 2022 at 6:49 pm #

        Everything seems to be suspect B, but I can’t agree on Trump’s job being to sow division, even though more division has occurred as a result of his election. His election was almost totally unexpected, with the EC nullifying Hillary’s almost 3 million vote plurality.

        I would say that Antifa and Burn, Loot ‘n’ Murder were a reaction to Chauvin and Floyd, with the Left seizing a great opportunity to bring about the division and upheaval that they desired.

        Trust, of course, is a big factor. Hopefully we use more facts and reason to gather it up.

    Kind of awkward getting in the middle of some serious Trucking General Strike planning with the same old train story. But the truckers still have the last word with the branch rail lines rebuilt: “Pick Up & Delivery” is still the trucker’s ace in the hole..

    Considering AI trucking locked in the mind of Gates/Soros & Co., already solid state controls on most all trucks owner operated or fleets, it still fits Daniel Chapter 4 V15 NIV to proceed with all due haste the branch line railways rebuild. Food distribution enhancement can be more robust with the old rail links into farm districts rebuilt. Railways are more easily designed as a tow-tech but effective transport mode relying 100% on Made In America components & equipment.

    The world system is ineffective going forward in context of exclusive American rubber tire ability to stave off famine in multiple crises War/Weather/WMD coming through the decade. Massive food handout lines early in the Covid sage were a word to the wise to encourage broadening national transport mode choices & capacities. See spv dot co dot uk and obtain all time US rail map atlas for your respective region. OES planners?

    I will venture to say the fraternity of truck drivers, heart of USA transport, might be best situated to move the branch line RR initiative? Choose yout line on the map and work with “American Short Line Regional Railroad Association” to facilitate and prioritize scope & timing of features in your locale. Main rr trunk connections are the difficult aspects of engineering, and will require stretches of parallel track to consolidate number of actual connecting junctions. Reformed US Army RR Battalions are needed; see the RR unit template at Ft. Eustis VA.

          Roasting German and Japanese civilians, nuking the Japanese, all the Vietnamese deaths, both sides, precipitated by the US involvement, the tens of thousands in the Middle East and the millions of displaced. The “regrettable collateral damage”…..

          I’m not a pacifist. The USSR was a problem. But it imploded. Peacefully.

          We can’t right the past, but we don’t need to cause more problems. The military industrial complex is the biggest waste and has caused incalculable damage… to Americans and the US economy!

          The US created the crisis. EvenTrump, even as he was framed in the phony Russiagate, expelled many Russian diplomats.

          The US created the Ukraine crisis. The US plans to foment and prolong it, probably.

          NATO should have disbanded in 1992.

          If they can do so without taking big losses, the Russians should take it all. They can trade their energy with China and India. The Russian people are much less candy a$$es than Americans.

          I live in a country that had a lot going for it, and started to unravel after JFK was shot. A republic—populated by too many ignorant, complacent people who blithely vote for the interventionist politicians who fomented the problem in Ukraine.

          If the West cuts off Russia, it will hasten the demise of the dollar as reserve currency, which has enabled Americans to live beyond their means.

    I am in simple just say NO mode and am working through who actually is on my side.

    I watched Westerns as a kid and gleaned that if you call out a cheater you’d better be ready to draw…..Frankly I am an old guy and am available for barricade duty but I wasn’t planning to hit the streets like I did against the draft in Vietnam days.

    What percent of the electorate is convinced the government is trying to kill or enslave them as part of the Great Reset? I am guessing 10% because there is a lot of deadwood….Talk is cheap but I like it a lot better than action. I can believe Fauci doesn’t care whether I live or die but neither did Eisenhower when he ordered D-Day.

    What realistic political action is possible to quell the histrionic verbiage emanating from the dispossessed class? Could Congress DO anything believably helpful? I am incensed that they have not already called hearings to “get to the bottom” of this public health totalitarianism. Confusion just goes on and on.

    My yahoo feed today looks like the opening of a new gambit. There is an admission of much increased cardiac disease and death. It is attributed to “this terrible virus”. We have long covid affecting the previously infected gnawing at their cardiac health. Is this true? Is it virus or is it vaccine? It is terribly important to maintain a significant control group of the unvaccinated.

    And I see the cheery news about Australia finally reopening after 2 years to international travelers and banned Nationals. Everyone that is fully vaccinated is welcome to come or return home. I looked up “fully vaccinated” on the government website and it means an approved series from an approved vaccine. Definitions to be modified later as necessary…

      “We have long covid affecting the previously infected gnawing at their cardiac health. Is this true? Is it virus or is it vaccine?”

      I think they have deliberately muddied the waters by insisting (against all the genuine science) that the covid recovered still get vaxxed. Not to mention that if there’s a depop agenda (which I think there is) they won’t want the covid recovered to miss out on an early exit.

      So they’re doing studies purporting to show that the covid recovered risk heart attacks, but without differentiating between vaxxed and unvaxxed.

      We know from the data (presented by McCullough and Bridle, among others, that the covid recovered are at 4 times the risk of a serious adverse reaction to the vaxx compared to those who haven’t had covid. As I’ve mentioned before, a friend of mine had covid, later got vaxxed, then had a heart attack out of the blue a month or so later (not reported anywhere as it hasn’t occurred to either her or the medics that there was a connection – and why would it, since it’s all censored?).

      • GreenAlba February 21, 2022 at 7:56 pm #

        The other thing we don’t know, because they haven’t allowed generalised early treatment of covid, is whether long covid would even be a thing if early treatment had been routine. If treated early, the disease shouldn’t even get to the stage where heart and lungs are affected.

        I know some people don’t even think long covid exists, but I know people who’ve had it, so I don’t doubt it exists. But it may have been entirely unnecessary, like most of the deaths.

        Logically, if s proteins are the culprit to all the immunity problems, that should have been found out way back in 2020. If the immune system overreaction was do to s proteins as I believe it was,

        The damned s proteins should never been the antigen selected for the vaxx.

        If true, this is one of the dumbest medical decisions ever made.

        If it was on purpose as some suggest, oil up the guillotine.

          Hello JohnAZ

          My wife’s erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) went from 26 (has been normal for years) on 07/16/2021 to 83 on 02/02/2022, and having released her just prior, her rheumatologist reactivated treatment after seeing this result.

          On 02/11/2022 my wife was having acute pain above her hip (been having migrating pain in this regard for a couple of years) and asked to go to the clinic. The NP was concerned about a kidney stone so ordered imaging. After numerous tests and imaging, the assessment is that her breast cancer has been reactivated as cancer in her liver (posterior segment lesion) and back bones (up to this point, I thought her breast cancer had been cured).

          I am aware of discussions by Dr. Malone and Dr. Bridle concerning the overreaction of the immune system to attack the spike proteins in various organs, and find it interesting that none of the medical professional feel that there is any relation between the cancer and her current ESR result.

          In January, she had a bad cold? (she has not been vaccinated), and was coughing hard for the better part of the month.

          Is anyone aware of unconventional treatment for stage 4 breast cancer of the liver as a consequence of covid, or do we just go with the flow and pick one of the conventional treatment
          options?

        Consider this.

        Vaxx hits people sensitive to the s protein just as much as the Virus itself.

        Only a percentage of the population gets Covid. Only a percentage of those are super sensitive and have problems.

        The vaxx is like introducing all jabbed to a dose of s proteins, ie like giving them the crud itself. A percentage of those will be supersensitive to these s proteins. Adverse effects.

        Add part B to Part A.

      RocketDoc, Sen. Ron Johnson did hold hearings, with some really great testimony and truth telling.
      They have been suppressed.
      They were five hours long, but all I could find is this part.

        Paula

        There are two separate sessions. The 3-hour session you linked to is the first one in November that Sen. Johnson called a ‘Round Table on Federal Mandates’ (can be found by searching that term). It’s mostly vaxx victims, including doctors/surgeons who can’t practise any more).

        The 5-hour session was broader and took place in Jan. or Feb. It can be found by looking up ‘Senator Johnson hearing – a Second Opinion’.

        The full 5-hour session is here:

        https://rumble.com/vt62y6-covid-19-a-second-opinion.html

        I think it starts properly about 40 minutes in. Pierre Kory is about an hour after that, talking about ivermectin. I’m going to have to start again from the beginning as it was a while ago that I started listening to it and I didn’t get that far in. I’ve watched the full 3-hour session with the victims in the Federal Mandates Round Table hearing.

          Serious scientists and doctors (including doctors and surgeons so incapacitated by the jabs that they can’t work) have been described as ‘conspiracy theorists’ in the MSM, after participating in the hearings. The brainwashed therefore listen to the MSM and don’t listen to the testimony.

          That is ‘being suppressed’.

          As witnessed in the hearings, ordinary victims of the jabs can’t get help because doctors won’t see them or take them seriously. They are afraid for their jobs if the acknowledge vaxx harm.

          When they form support groups online, those support groups are deleted by Big Tech.

          That is ‘being suppressed’.

          I do sometimes wonder what your motivation can be for fighting the truth so hard, RL. There are worse things in life and death than accepting that you were duped and will pay a physical price for your misplaced trust, as I will. One of the worse things is to go down defending the psychos who did it to you.

        Racist is an accusation akin to “witch” that can lead to the destruction of a White person’s life. You don’t get that? Or you think it’s funny or no longer the case?

        If you want some notion of infinity, calculate how many times these two have used this slur against other Whites. One of them used it against me the other day, but now she’s talking like she’s too cool for school.

        You see Black, whether they use it or not, they believe it. So why wouldn’t they use it? Maybe you believe it too. So, to wit: Is it wrong for a White person to prefer his or her own race? And given the conflict inherent in multi-racial societies, desire a mono-racial one?

        • MaryQueen February 23, 2022 at 2:31 pm #

        “Racist”, “White Supremacist”, and “White Nationalist” have been thrown at us Honkies (I’m old fashioned and I like funk – well, some of it) for long enough, and by folks way up the ladder above us, that a lotta cracker-honkie-ofays that I know have decided to proudly – if at first reluctantly – adopt those titles, no offense taken.

        “White Trash”? Even folks that aren’t white trash now aspire to the title.

    You can blame the people of Canada for their abject subservience. Remember, these are descendants of British subjects who didn’t have the stones to stand up for their rights as Englishmen, as their fellow colonists were busy doing, so turned tail and fled north.

A few summers ago — before Covid travel restrictions — we had a few Frenchy summer guests (from the Cannes, Nice area); they wanted to see Montreal, about 8 hours north of here. So they drove up with my wife. Everybody got a big charge out of the conversation back and forth and the different dialects. They were able to communicate OK tho.

        These Frenchys themselves are an anomaly; during the Spanish Civil War the govt moved thousands of girls and young women to safe havens outside of Spain. Some stayed in their host countries after the war ended in 1939, so these relatives are 3 generations removed from that and now are full Frenchys.

      Well, a lot of the Loyalist Canadians didn’t cross the border after the war, once they finally admitted that, “yeah, our side lost”. Good thing they did too, they raised almighty hell with their Native American buddies in the backcountry.

      If ya wanna blame some Canucks for the Rebel failure to take Canada, blame the Catholic Canadiens. Their fear of hot-headed Protestant rebels from south of the St. Lawrence, as well as Governor Carleton’s timely passage of the Canada Act in 1774, kept the Quebecois loyal to their oppressor beyond the big water – for a couple hundred years anyway.

      If ya wanna blame someone for the Rebel failure to take Canada in 1775-76, you can’t do better than to blame the New York army. Ran away when their general (Montgomery) was killed, leaving one star-crossed Colonel to save the invasion. Yup, that’d be Benedict Arnold – the guy who saved the War of Independence twice in the next 2 years.

      By 1812 those Anglo-Canucks had learned to love Big Brother and rejected the second attempt of the war-mongering yahoos from south of the Lakes to liberate them.

      I have conducted a detailed analysis of the overrarching situations and have concluded that indeed mind over matter is a thing. If we allow them to the Putins and the “Joe Bidens” and the Justin Trudeaus of the world will occupy our minds and our energies. Klaus Schwab said that Putin is basically a WEF asset. So these are friends playing chess or mortal enemies? It all seems convenient and coordinated. All three for example are uber wealthy dictators so they all have more in common with each other than they do with their respective peoples or you or me. If every body woke up tomorrow and told them “you are nothing to me I’m on strike!” they would crumble. I know. It’s not going to happen. But it could, it is possible and it should be a goal.

          • Islander February 23, 2022 at 11:08 am #

            No, I said Putin was not planning to invade the Ukraine.

            And he has not done so.

          • Paula D February 23, 2022 at 11:29 am #

            Indeed, Islander.
            He always said that he would not invade Ukraine, but that he would protect Russians in Donbass.
            And that is what they are doing.

        Klaus Schwab said that Putin is basically a WEF asset.

        That’s possible, but of course Schwab would say that wouldn’t he? Any port in a storm, as they say. Look for all manner of rats to be abandoning ship in the coming days, and doing and saying anything they can to save their flea-ridden carcasses. The propaganda war against Russia is just getting warmed up. Look for Russian sympathizer witch hunts to begin here in the good old “land of the free.” Maybe even the long-awaited false-flag cyber attack that they’ve been warning us about for so long to shut down any inconvenient discussion among “free thinking” people.

        • SoftStarLight February 22, 2022 at 11:12 am #

          Wow I know! So I thought of that too. Like what if Klaus is head faking us all. That would be nothing but routine for someone like him right? I don’t doubt that the marxists and communists here will take there persecutions to the next level.

        Well I’m rapidly losing faith in that advice, Mary. When I force myself to think soberly, my conclusion is that they’re 100% tuned in to our collective mood along with all our communications too. So they probably know the movement has only just begun, and they’re taking steps to clamp down hard. Pre-crime is now a totally real offense, punishable by death in the end.

        For crying out loud, the Freedom Convoy was entirely peaceful! Where did that get us?

        • Disaffected February 22, 2022 at 11:05 am #

          Peaceful’s got nothing to do with it. When power is mortally threatened in any way it always responds with more power. No two ways about it. Everything before that is just PR to conceal the inevitable bottom line. Peace, love, and understanding through the barrel of a gun. Canada’s always been perceived as weak, so they’re just trying to catch up with the rest of the world.

      The Haka? You mean the little number the All Blacks perform before every match to intimidate the other team? Gotta say, my own Pumas were not intimidated a little while ago, and finally beat them. Other teams have, too. Do you follow rugby? I’m more or less incommunicado, barely have any internet and no tv, but of the precious minutes with connection, I confess I spend too many checking out the rugby.

      A good part, I spend reading your comments, even when I have nothing to say myself. Keep ’em coming, and cheers!

      • Blackbird February 23, 2022 at 2:20 pm #

        I don’t pay attention to professional sports, but rugby – and Aussie rules football – those are real sports compared to US football. (And forget baseball – 10 fat guys standing around waiting for something to happen. Basketball? 100 points per game? Slide that basket up another 3 feet…) No helmet, no padding, no million dollars.

        Thanks for the encouragement and kind words, RD. No, I can’t claim to follow rugby, but now and then I’ll watch a couple game replays online. It’s a great game. It really feels like the people’s game, more so than soccer, er, um, uh, football. 😉

        I also enjoy your insights, and hope to hear from you more often too. And it’s a nice blog ya got going there! At one time I figured Argentina would be a good landing place for my wife and me, as she’s a trainer, and the sport of kings is big there. She disagreed, citing an inhospitable environment for female trainers. Was she correct?

        • Rulo Deschamps February 23, 2022 at 6:25 pm #

          Thanks, JT. The sport of kings? Are you talking about soccer (football to the rest of the world)? Because if so, that’s not it, it’s called the “beautiful game”, and on good days it is. I think kings play polo, which is also big in Argie. We send horses and players all over the world. The Arab degenerate sheiks in particular pay very well…

          So, if your wife is in fact a trainer for female soccer teams, she could in fact do well down there. Women’s soccer is only big in the US, until recently unheard of in the rest of the world, but it’s now catching on and there’s many all female teams. It’s a growth area. Doesn’t work for me, as it doesn’t approach what male athletes can accomplish, but many are definitely starting to pay attention.

          The thing is, the local $ is so devalued, a thousand of theirs is only worth about u$ 4, so it wouldn’t be a good idea financially to go there to work, as the wages would be adequate locally, but laughable here.

          On the other hand, if you bring dollars… talk about the sport of kings. A prime grass-fed steak dinner with all the trimmings and a bottle of good red, coffee and dessert, for the u$ equivalent of a McMeal here.

        • JTinMD February 24, 2022 at 6:24 am #

          • Rulo Deschamps February 24, 2022 at 4:42 pm #

            Ah, JT, understood. Yes, plenty of horse breeders down there, but she wouldn’t make anywhere near what she’s worth if she’s paid in pesos. On the other hand, one of the rich ones may take a fancy to an American lady training his horses, but I suspect that would be problematic, so let’s leave it at that and keep you and Ms JT happy and content, stateside.

    Rending of garments — I felt compelled to investigate a little.

    One thing certain about the practice, which is sometimes accompanied by other gestures such us wearing sackcloth and putting ashes on one’s head or praying, is that it occurred invariably at an unpleasant moment in a person’s life. Our close reading of the texts shows that it denotes the rending of the inner being of a person.

    A legitimate comparison to Hitler.

    In the upside-down world of the Holocaust, dignified professionals were Hitler’s advance troops. Police officials disregarded their duty in favour of protecting villains and persecuting victims. Lawyers perverted concepts of justice . . . doctors defiled medicine to perpetrate ghastly experiments . . . statisticians used their little-known but powerful discipline to identify their victims, project and rationalise the benefits of their destruction, organise their persecution . . . Enter IBM and its overseas subsidiaries’.

      If the Nazis had somehow fended off Capitalism/Communism, the Bankers would have their foot in their door to keep making money and perhaps betrayed or pervert them down the line. They certainly didn’t want them to conquer the world or any such foolishness.

    • Disaffected February 22, 2022 at 4:36 pm #

      Better, he already knows that the US “tried and true” economic sanctions hurt the US/NATO as much or more than they do Russia, who’s already been under sanctions of one sort or another for so long now that no one can remember when they weren’t. And chipping away at the US economy – and thus the US Dollar itself – is the longer term play here. Once the petrodollar and the dollar denominated payment systems are no more, neither will the US (aka, DC, NYC, & London) as a coherent entity be either. And THEN the real fun begins as all the little Zionist rats run for cover!

(‘coz Capitalism – gotta chase the almighty dollar!) Enrich the oil companies, enslave the people. Moving ahead right on schedule.

      Putin’s stated intention to round up, jail or even execute dissidents, LGBTQ and religious and ethnic minorities in Ukraine portends crimes against humanity.

Real tin ear when it came to reading the room. He also had the temerity to embrace alternative spiritual philosophies of all types, coming from a family of strict fundamentalist Christian upbringing. My mom, no piece of cake to get along with either, had a real love/hate thing going on with him his whole life, but she was more broke up than anyone when he finally kicked the bucket.

    Anglin’s Putin bullet points:

    It’s not a real country now, it is completely run by foreign powers. It is not controlled by the Ukrainian people, but by foreign powers, and also by oligarchs chosen by foreign powers.

    Both groups have robbed the people of the country for their own purposes, primarily using the “country” as a battering ram against Russia.
    Stalin and Khrushchev gave Russian territory to the Ukraine for political administration reasons that were practical at the time but irrelevant to geopolitics because it was all the USSR. (He didn’t really make any bones about the fact that he thinks the USSR was an economic and administrative disaster.)

    The Ukraine is a “colony with a puppet government.”

    The Ukraine government is now saying that they are going to start building nuclear weapons, an ability that they have because they were a part of the Soviet Union.

    NATO made promises in 1992 that they would not expand NATO eastward, and yet they started doing so immediately.

    He asked Bill Clinton if Russia could join NATO in 2000, and Clinton blew him off and chuckled at him, proving that the plan was always to break apart Russia even further via war methods. (He said this is the first time he’s revealed he had this conversation with Clinton.)

    He says making an enemy out of Russia just proves that the people running Washington are megalomaniacal, and have no desire for peace, and that they’ve been trying to overthrow Russia since the end of the Cold War.

    He laid out the details of the “Maidan” coup, which was not a “revolution,” but a violent overthrow of an elected government by foreign powers.

    He explained that the Ukraine is not a “democracy” and that Russian-speakers are being physically attacked, economically disenfranchised, and banned from speaking their own language not just at schools but also in shops and other public places. He says that the Ukrainians didn’t harbor this kind of hatred before, it was a “brotherly” nation, and that the West has trumped up hatred via their control of the Ukrainian government, and their connection to the oligarchs.

    He said that like every country, Russia has a right to protect its interests, and this is exactly what they plan to do.

    The West is not offering a peaceful solution. They pretend like they are, but then refuse any form of concession, and just start making more threats.

    Finally: Russia will officially recognize the independence of the two declared breakaway republics in the Donbass.

    Jarek: He asked Clinton if Russia could join NATO and Clinton laughed in his face. That says it all. The malice of the Allies is without bounds.

    Many Russian speakers are now behind enemy lines. One can expect the persecution to intensify. Will Putin be forced to take half of the Ukraine to protect his people?

    What a surprise.

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/newslondon/no-further-action-after-covid-19-vaccine-allegations-metropolitan-police/ar-AAUaEUb

    “Scotland Yard said there will be no further action following an assessment of allegations made about the UK’s Covid-19 vaccine programme.

    “The Metropolitan Police said a number of documents were submitted at a West London police station on December 20 in support of claims that alleged people in the UK Parliament and other organisations had suppressed information about the severity of health implications for those taking the vaccine.

    “Police said it was suggested by the complainants that offences including gross negligent manslaughter and misconduct in a public office may have taken place.

    “We have found no evidence to support any claims that information about adverse health implications is being suppressed or withheld from the public in the manner that was alleged.

    “Deputy Assistant Commissioner Jane Connors
    Following an assessment of all the available evidence, the Met said “it is clear that no criminal offences are apparent”.

    “The force said it will not be launching a criminal investigation and no further action will be taken in relation to the allegations.”

    So that’s that then. No information about adverse effects is being suppressed ;in the manner that was alleged’.

    That was Dr Sam White’s case, if anyone was following.

          • GreenAlba February 23, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

            I consider the Gates Foundation to be intertwined with the WEF – Gates donates funds to The Guardian, the BBC, the factcheckers, the CDC (he’s their biggest funder, I think?), the WHO (which he practically owns), the MHRA (UK health products and medicines regulator, to whom he gave £980,000 while pushing ‘his’ ‘vaccines’) and has bought up a host of media outlets, like The Atlantic.

            Why does a tech entrepreneur want news outlets, fact checkers and medicines regulators in his pocket? Why is he interested in vaccines at all? He hasn’t a medical qualification to his name.

            Gates had a meeting with Boris the evening before the parliamentary vote (which amounted to a few MPs baying across the house – the votes weren’t even properaly counted) on renewing covid restrictions. Why is Gates ‘advising’ the UK Government on its covid policy at all? In my view Gates is an emissary of the WEF/Blackrock – a very rich errand boy, who also happens to have a eugenicist and transhumanist agenda himself.

            Schwab has boasted about the premiers and cabinets he has in his pocket – see my post mentioning Schwab upthread where there is a link to him saying it (and the Canadian Speaker of the House getting all flustered because an MP asked about it). When governments all round the world decide to do the same thing at the same time about the same problem (and especially when the things they do are dysfunctional to solving the problem), they’re not doing it by accident.

    FOOD PRICES TO GO MUCH HIGHER.
    Yet USA exports food and imports oil [and fertilizer?]

    Russia produces 2/3 of the world ammonium nitrate, most of it is used in the production of fertilizers for agriculture.

    Russia exported a lot of it to the West until recently.

    And has banned all export of fertilizers from Feb 1 to April 1 of this year.

Nixon 1971, abolished the gold standard creating the hot air speculative economy we live in now – and which is about to crash. And that’s just the US.

          The kids you went to school with who only learned to cheat. The kids they “raised” by feeding them junk food and electronic devices but not reading to them. How could you – or me or any of us – have fixed that?

            @ Blackbird:

            People in general could have done a lot of things. While the proverbial “moral and religious people” can be enslaved like anyone else, it is more difficult to enslave them.

            There’s no reason why they couldn’t have read to their kids, provided them with good nutritious food, and refused to turn them over to babysitters and the public school system to raise. People could have educated themselves. They could have kicked the TV to the curb. They could have cultivated religion and spirituality in themselves and their children. They could have maintained cultural standards, and refused to listen to bad music, to watch disgusting movies or TV shows, or to read crap literature–and instead surrounded themselves with good music and good books.

            I don’t know if moral degradation is a necessary precondition for enslaving people, but if it’s not, the moral degradation may be the worse of the two conditions.

            Blacks are kind of an object lesson in how freedom is lost. You allow yourself to become so disgusting and degraded that there is a general, if unspoken, concensus that you should not be allowed in the neighborhood, the park, the restaurant, or the workplace.

            E.g., many years ago there was a tempest in a teapot over black teenagers frequenting one of the parks in an affluent neighborhood. The park had become a favorite place for black kids to play basketball. Do people mind teenagers playing basketball in the park? Um…no. But people do mind profanity, boom boxes playing filthy music, and public urination. The (white) young mothers who lived in the affluent neighborhood did not want to take their kids to the park. This type of behavior leads to a concensus that your freedoms should be limited. This particular affluent area has a long history of police discouragement of “driving while black.” This policy has strong public support.

            When people behave like pigs, the public will adopt the view that they should not be allowed freedom–thus lending tyrants a constituency.

          • Jarek February 24, 2022 at 12:12 am #

            Well said. Black standards are well below that of Whites – and that is a worldwide thing. But things are far worse in the United States because of the legacy of slavery and Black hatred of Whites. They don’t have to try and be good because we’re the Devil. They are automatically better than us and all their faults are on us. It’s quite natural for them to fall into this psychology. And Black immigrants from Africa will adopt it – just wait and see. As have the Blacks who came willingly to Great Britain, you see.

            They did behave themselves much better when they were afraid of us. And before Welfare destroyed the Black family. Neither of these important points negate the more general considerations above, though. Many may wish that they do, but they don’t.

            @ Jarek:

            One of Jesus’s parables applies here: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”

            Where goodness and beauty are cultivated, even by a few, they will multiply. What people, as individuals, can do is not allow these to be extinguished.

            This is a fine-grained work. It requires a life lived reverently and innocently on a moment-to-moment basis. No raised voices, no tread of violence, kids taught to love each other.

            Once when my kids were little and were telling each other to shut up, I told them, “That’s not the way you talk to your sister. The way you talk to your sister is to say, ‘O speak again, bright angel!'” Perhaps this was an exaggerated view.

            Our purpose in this life is be the medium through which the Kingdom of Heaven is m made manifest on earth.

            As grace has been shed upon us (often undeservedly), we are to shed grace on others.

            In our family life, we are to manifest the Kingdom of Heaven. We are to do the same thing in our work. I am fortunate, at least at present, that my work involves creating things of beauty. If you had ever seen the Kingdom of Heaven, you would have seen that it is a place of staggering, mind-blowing beauty. We are to manifest this on earth–not only in music, arts, and letters, but also in our homes and our most mundane doings.

            I’m not sure of your line of reasoning in your last statement, since I don’t really see where Berbers or Turks come into the picture.

      Mary, there has been a fair amount of negative news this past week or so, but keep in mind that Canada is one of the most infiltrated governments in the West. Friedland is on the board at the WEF, and Trudeau and his cabinet were specifically mentioned as having been “penetrated” to the point that at least half of the cabinet were operatives.

      There is still good resistance elsewhere, and even in places like Canada, it is far from over.

      As provided today in the Forward Observer’s daily briefing.

      SECDEF APPROVES NATIONAL GUARD IN DC: Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin approved the use of 700 National Guard members and 50 “large tactical vehicles” in response to the trucker convoy headed to D.C. The soldiers are tasked with controlling traffic flows without weapons or law-enforcement authority. The first of three known truck groups should arrive from Pennsylvania today with planned stops in metro areas along the way. One organizer said, “We’re going to travel the Beltway at a safe speed. We’re not looking for a battle. Don’t create one.” (AC: The deployment of the Guard troops without weapons indicates this is largely performative. The truckers are aware of the increased scrutiny from law enforcement and are unlikely to provoke encounters. Agitators are likely to be present, but the convoy participants’ use of internal communications and prior coordination could insulate the group from any federal law enforcement intrusion. – D.M

      The truckers getting any news time is in doubt now because of events in eastern Europe being the almost perfect 24 hour emergency story. The neo-con/neo-liberal set couldn’t have had a better event to save the globalist movement from various populist threats. The democrats and three quarters of republicans will go hog wild for overthrowing and possibly further provoking Putin in a war his nation can’t win. I fear this saved Biden in the midterms and maybe further. Very depressing is the thought of these fools surviving open borders, BLM and CRT mania plus the crime spree.

    That’s because there is no American interest that justifies our intervention in Ukraine, unless of course you consider all the shady deals Hunter Biden has going on over there to be an American interest. https://t.co/fy7GCJVOLQ

    This is Trump 1.0, the pov that got him elected. But in contrast, Trump himself got boastful today saying that Putin wouldn’t try this on his watch. This is Trump 2.0, controlled by the Deep State and trying to stay out of prison.

    So finally it “starts” (Donbass), though many had sort of figured it out once they figured out that the covid19 is a hoax.

    I mean:
    The covid stuff was not killing any significant numbers than a normal flu –> thus a hoax

    Such a world wide hoax needs the support of every big player with pharmaceutical capacity (china india iran brazil etc)

    obviously Iran, china and Russia agreed because they gained something.

    China is not a strong player here because they are net beggars for energy. That Taiwan there is not important an issue because it will be Han chinese whatever happens.

    I guessed:

    1.china’s job is to keep supplying trinkets while the west and others (including china and india) gently bring down their consumption.

    2. Russia/Iran has no intention of depleting their fossil fuel reserves any more than necessary. “Necessary” being the need to supply the basics for the west/china to gently go down.

    3. Some “events” will make Russia/Iran “unable” to make their money selling their energy products. Thus they have a sob story to tell their people as to why they cannot have an orgy of consumption and leave their descendants as paupers.

    4. Russia will get back all their Russian lands with the help of the USA. Events will keep on happening that increases the determination of the Russian public while making the Europeans scared of war that will destroy what little they have.

    I thought Russia can wrap it up last year but the USA was just too slow to infuriate them enough.

    Hopefully they absorb all those scattered republics they created around their orders by 2025.

    Only one wish i have for Putin. Pray stop this vaxx madness.

    Been vacationing in Florida for the past month, but now I’m in Foxwoods in Ct. and will be home tomorrow. Just reporting on what I’ve seen and experienced on my trip, which confirms a lot of what CFNers have been talking about here, even if it sounds trivial.

    There’s shortages everywhere. Many Restaurants we ate at seemed to be out of some menu items. My Disney stay was somewhat disappointing. Our room had several breakdowns of equipment and the pool was closed down for 3 days because of a broken pump. The cleaning staff didn’t seem to have it together. I’ve always rated my stay at least a 9 out of 10. This time it was a 7. Also, everything was shockingly expensive. How can the average household even afford to stay there?

    We had a bad experience tonight in Foxwoods. First, almost all the restaurants are still closed during the week, and open only on weekends. Our room is excellent, though. Because of the closed restaurants, we ate at California Pizza Kitchen. When we went in, they said the wait would be an hour, but we could avoid the wait by eating at the bar. – no problem. We always liked their split pea and barley soup; of course, they were out of it. We went for soup and salad. Oh, well. We were relegated to just having a caesar’s salad. Unfortunately, our waitress, who was awful, got in a fight with one of the cooks. A lot of yelling and fuck yous right in front of us. Very unpleasant. The waitress was so upset she ran out the rear exit. They were very short-staffed, so we were left waiting for a measly salad with no waitstaff around. Finally, I complained to the manager, who made up a salad for us. The dressing on the salad was so bad, I left without paying.

    There’s a lot more, but I’m not going to go on and on.i Suffice it to say, everybody seemed to get things wrong all the way up and dow the coast. It was very apparent to us that things are breaking down.

      Los Angeles, $19 for 2 eggs at a not fancy restaurant.
      doubt me? go check online for the menus.

      This vlogger documents the $16 for 2 eggs in san diego,
      somewhere in the last 10 days of this vlog,

        San Diego now has the dubious distinction of Americas most expensive city to live in.
        Denny’s egg plate will run you $20 with a coffee.

      • beantownbill. February 24, 2022 at 11:55 am #

        A quart of coffee creamer just cost us $5.50 at our local grocery store (Stop & Shop). Cost us $15 for scrambled eggs at a restaurant in Orlando.

      Bill, Foxwoods is expanding and “Changing Directions”, announced it will be more ‘Family Friendly’. Like Vegas did in the 90s.

      I don’t know why but I am picturing this waitress as grossly over-weight and covered with large ugly tattoos.

      @ Beantownbill:

      It’s getting to where these East- and West-coast tales about how everything is going to shit seem very remote of life here in fly-over country. (Specifically, the more distant exurbs of Kansas City, Missouri.)

      All things covid seem to have been memory-holed. No one even talks about it any more, other than to maybe note that they had Omicron (per a home test). Masks have almost completely disappeared, and no one has much to say about their vax status. The Karens have gone silent. We have had occasional shortages of some grocery items. The only thing I’ve really noticed is that heavy cream disappeared from all local stores for a week or two. While there has never been a problem getting chicken, no one ever seems to have chicken livers–which I crave from time to time. Restaurants remain pretty much the same as ever, in terms of price and service, but we rarely eat out. When we do, it’s most often our favorite Indian restuarant (the Korma Sutra), which was expensive to start wth, or at Annie’s 58 in Holden, where you can get a dinner-plate size tenderloin sandwich. Prices there are unchanged.

      Gas is over $3.00/gallon, and my daughter complains that car parts are very expensive now. She is the family car mechanic. I can’t see that food prices have increased much, if any. My daughter says that beef is very high. I have personally felt that it was impossible to get good beef or chicken without paying premium prices, for several years. E.g., you can buy cheap chickens at Walmart, but when you make them into chicken broth, the broth tastes like water. You have to pay $15 for a chicken that has any flavor. But it’s been this way for years already. Same with beef. I won’t skimp on high-quality, nutritious food, and I refuse to prepare meals that are not fit to eat because the ingredients came from Walmart. I’m used to high food prices. Luckily (perhaps) I don’t eat much, due to being an old person.

      My daughter and her husband have a freezer that is overflowing with meat, as they raise diary goats, chickens, and usually a couple of hogs. And the in-laws recently butchered a cow, so they got a lot of beef. Predators have been bad this winter (because their guard dog died last fall), so the chicken flock needs replenishing. Their mama goat just kidded three days ago, so there will soon be goat milk. My daughter and I are planning a big garden for this summer.

      People here remain mostly pleasant.

      I do worry about inflation, but, around here, we’re mostlly living in 2019.

      I just sold my house, which was cheap due to years of deferred maintenance, to a young family that moved from the city–and I’m guessing a pretty rough part of the city. I am happy for them. It’s a different world out here.

      • beantownbill. February 24, 2022 at 12:16 pm #

        You are lucky, Anthea. Up here in the Boston area things are starting to get painfully expensive. Food is expensive for us because we are vegetarians (fish only) and food snobs. We watch very carefully the quality of what we put into our mouths, like you, so we pay a premium for meals. We try to exercise a lot (difficult in winter) and that gives us big appetites.

        Gas is around $3.50/gal, but that was before the Ukraine invasion. We have a hybrid SUV and get about 40 mpg. We don’t drive much; gas prices aren’t a big factor for us. People in our complex are just beginning to be concerned about inflation.

          @ Beantownbill:

          Re the rudeness and vulgarity: for Midwesterners and Southerners, courtesty and graciousness are cultural norms. We often find the manners of Easterners, West Coast people, and Northerners quite jarring and offensive. E.g., I’ve been going to our rural Walmart for twenty years, and I’ve only once encountered rudeness. The typical conversation between Walmart customers is, “Oh my goodness! I must be in your way. Excuse me!” This is often followed by, “Can I help you get that item down from the top shelf?”

          When I took a job in one of the northern states, I noticed that the gas station cashiers became surly and rude as soon as I hit the Iowa line. The school where I was teaching was well aware that they had a courtesy problem. (They had formed a committee.) E.g., when I came to work in the morning, I routinely said, “Good morning,” to everyone; they never replied. No one EVER said please or thank you, “Good morning,” or, “How are you?” Let alone, “How is your dog?” or “How are the kids liking school?”

          One of my daughters took a job in the Portland area after finishing graduate school in Tennessee. She was shocked by the constant gratuitous aggression and argumentativeness of the people in the Portland area. She found it unbelievable that, if someone dropped some stuff at the store, no one helped them pick it up. Once a co-worker told my daughter she was having a bad day and was shocked that my daughter brought her a cup of coffee as a gesture of kindness. She once told me that it was so bad that she really missed the gushy, chatty Southern women who would come up and give you a hug for no reason.

          My daughter was used to living in a community where, if you ran your car into a ditch in the winter, someone would come along and pull you out with a logging chain–usually within ten or fifteen minutes.

          Even the guys who run a couple of the local gas stations (who are Muslims of some stripe) often make an effort to conform to local standards of courtesy–though they were never rude or surly. For awhile there, they were saying, “Thank you, dear,” after you paid for your cigarettes–though perfunctorily. But at least they were trying to appear genial.

          I won’t say that assholery is completely absent in the Midwest, but it’s almost entirely confined to the workplace and is much resented, even there.

    Just info for northeasterners: Don’t take a car train down to Florida. We did, and it was a horrible experience. I’ll explain some other day.

    • MaryQueen February 23, 2022 at 12:41 am #

      What is a car train?

      • Night Owl February 23, 2022 at 4:58 am #

        A train that carries your car. You drive onto the flatbed and off you go.

        We took one in Switzerland in order to pass through a section of the Alps. Was faster, as the train went through a tunnel system.

        • Blackbird February 23, 2022 at 1:08 pm #

          Yup, only way to get into Zermatt – other than walking. I was driving a rental car with GPS. The GPS told me to go onto the train tracks – but there was a train there. I figured, “Oh well…” That was cool.

        • MaryQueen February 23, 2022 at 5:13 pm #

          Wow, I can’t believe that I didn’t know such a thing existed here in
