Playing Dumb

Would our country be disappointed if Russia actually solved the problem of Ukraine? You have every reason to think so.

It must be obvious by now that the biggest complainers about “misinformation” in the USA are the biggest spreaders of it. When you hear “baseless” and “conspiracy theory” do you not automatically now scent the rot of propaganda working through the delicate tissues of reality? Eventually the stench of psyop is so sharp that it even wakes up the walking dead.

Would our country be disappointed if Russia actually solved the problem of Ukraine? You have every reason to think so. For one thing, we would be stuck having to face our own problems, especially the ones caused by lying to ourselves, such as the nearly unthinkable obscenity of having possibly poisoned a majority of the US population with mRNA “vaccines” and killed hundreds of thousands of Covid-19 patients by withholding known effective treatments. What would you suppose we might do about that?

Hold people accountable? The scale of this disaster is so enormous that the country can’t begin to process it. And it’s not just us, it’s all of Western Civ, which is more or less interchangeable with NATO, now the chosen instrument of distraction. Do any of these member nations have the stomach to face their own gross institutional failures? Apparently not yet.

Even in the face of massive emerging data that the “vaccines” are a bust and have additionally injured and killed many people, the CDC still urges Americans to vaxx up and boost up. So, by the way, does allegedly “former president” Barack Obama, who tested positive for the virus over the weekend, despite being vaxxed to the max. Who will tell them to stop digging that hole they’re in before they dig all the way to China?

It’s only a matter of time before the swindled public flips and realizes it has been subject to mass murder by bureaucrats, politicians, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and purveyors of the news. They’re all in this up to their necks, as are their corresponding officials in France, Germany, the UK, et cetera. They are trying to sweep this enormous lump of depravity under the rug, hoping that the masses of citizens will just leave the room.

They used the same playbook for SpyGate and 2020 election fraud, but the odor of those two exploits lingers, too. CBS’s 60-Minutes (“brought to you by Pfizer!”) was still working the latest narrative failure Sunday night, attempting to defame special prosecutor and former state supreme court justice Michael Gableman’s 2020 Wisconsin election report, which accused Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of feloniously queering the vote by paying millions of dollars through a cut-out charity organization to replace actual local officials with Democratic Party activists to run the machinery of the election. Nothing to see there, declared CBS front-man Bill Whitaker. Judge Gableman’s report is just another conspiracy theory.

Threatened by losing the war against its own citizens, the US government now seeks a wider kinetic war over its would-be client state, Ukraine. The stakes must be pretty high for “Joe Biden” and Company to risk starting World War Three. Why else inflame a dangerous situation by sending more weapons there? I’ll tell you why: to prolong Russia’s operations to neutralize Ukraine so it won’t cause further trouble to them or anybody else in the world. The longer the US can keep that going, the longer we can put off the various reckonings at home.

America has no intention of actually defending Ukraine. It’s really just a global version of the interpersonal game “Let’s You and Him Fight,” as described by pioneering psychologist Eric Berne (1910 -1970), father of transactional analysis. The member nations of NATO have even less desire to join the battle, and are doing a poor job of pretending they oppose Russia’s disagreeable but necessary work there. So far, they have had to sacrifice desperately needed natural gas supplies from Russia. You can be sure they will find a way to sneak around US sanctions and reverse the blunder. They have no choice really, unless they want to go forward without any industries. Google-up the paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and you’ll catch a glimpse of that possible European future. Of course, they’ll also have to answer to their own citizens for the awful mistakes in the terrible saga of Covid-19.

The best outcome, as others have pointed out, will be the disassembly of Ukraine into an eastern Russian zone — perhaps annexed into Russia — and a rump western Ukraine state that will be as quiet and inoffensive as Moldova and Slovakia next door.  (When was the last time they caused any trouble in the world?) It would be best for everyone, and especially the Third World, if the Russian operation is concluded as quickly as possible with a structured peace settlement, leaving a chance to get a Ukrainian grain crop planted, because otherwise a lot of innocent people will go hungry. Is the USA interested in a peace settlement? Or do we want to drive events further toward tragedy and our own national suicide?

    Another brilliant post from Mr. Kunstler!

    Those who have read and continue to read AND act, based upon his writings, continue to maneuver away from rolling waves of calamity.

    Vulture capitalism fomented globalization in sending capital to China, Mexico, et. al. to exploit the lowest cost resources, at the expense of building a civilization of informed, prosperous, peaceful, self-determined peoples, residing in an egalitarian Democracy, under the protections and processes of the Constitutional Republic.

    6+ decades of a accruals, accelerating with the union of Rockefeller and Mao.

    Victors write the history.

    GODSPEED!

      You can also thank Lyndon Brainless Johnson for Breton Woods 2, so that he could pursue guns AND butter at the expense of turning America from an industrious producer nation to a debt-riddled consumer nation of greedy spoiled brats (“I wants my PUA benefits! How else can I survive?” Try getting a damn job and actually working.) We can also thank Richard Nixon for meeting with Mao and for closing the gold window, turning the dollar into a fiat currency and further making us into debtors, instead of following Herb Stein’s advice to revalue the price of gold so that the dollar remained stable. Nope, nope, sorry Herb but I’ve gotta go with the Rockefellers, and ultimately create petrodollars. And that’s how you sink the greatest country the world has ever seen.

        Uncle Bob, thanks for the historical sequence. I knew about Tricky Dick’s breathtakingly arrogant move but was unaware of the move by “Landslide Lyndon” Johnson which you mentioned.

        My understanding is that it was the Vietnam War, Lyndon’s baby, that jump-started the Japanese economy so massively. They supplied a great deal of material to the war effort, without sacrificing even one Japanese life.

        We only lost 50,000 but I am confident they were categorized as “expendables” or “cost of doing business”.

      • bluedog March 16, 2022 at 5:54 pm #

        “The greatest country the world has ever seen” indeed they said that about Rome too and a few others and where did they end up, in the dust bin of history right where we are headed and belong. But let’s bring it along Reagan who said we don’t need manufacturing for we will be the financial capital of the world now how has that turned out. Then his other b.s. remarks about how government is the problem, but the stupid people didn’t realize he was referring to the regulations which had been put on the business sector to prevent another depression like 29 and we the people have been paying through the nose ever since.

        As the man said, “A people that elect politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims…but accomplices, and he was right, and the people do it over and over again.

    If you’re a western leftie, you HAVE TO put a Ukrainian flag on your Twitter because Russia is Trump and Trump is Russia and Trump is still living in your empty head and will live there forever. Roughly half the electorate doesn’t go any deeper than that, and so you have to really, honestly question whether the rest of us have a future with those people. I think not.

    • Islander March 14, 2022 at 10:09 am #

      Liz,

      You nailed it, pretty much.

      Of course a lot of the “righties” are on board with the Ukraine story.

      I got an email yesterday from an acquaintance who is flying a huge blue-yellow flag outside his very visible location. He was dissing Russia an drubbing his hands about how their economy would tank without US and EU purchases of their FF.

      I replied as follows:

      “for a different view of whose economy is going to crash, I suggest the following interview:
      https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/armstrong-in-the-media/new-interview-insane-globalists-collapsing-world-economy/

      Martin Armstrong is basically apolitical—disregard the interviewer if you don’t like him. However, Armstrong certainly is not the only analyst saying this.

      I went to see the Ukranian film last night at the film center. It was shot in the Donbass in ca. 2019. The total disconnect between what was shown in the film, and its time frame (2014 — ca. 2019) and the comments of “Vlad” in Brookline who spoke via Skype before the film started were remarkable. I don’t know whether the audience noticed, or was able to parse this.

      It would have been more productive for Vlad to make his comments after the film. Then the audience would have had a chance to ask him who was shelling the civilians in the Donbass for 8 years.”
      ++++++++++++++

      The dummification via agit prop is unbelievable. This is a smart fellow. So far, no response from him.

      Don’t stop there. What are the larger implications?Therefore? Therefore Democracy as a form of government is contraindicated.

        Islander

        The successful war upon the American people had three stages:
        And the warhawks won.

        1- PREPARATION
        — An “education” system that taught it’s captives to cast aside all rational thought processes
        — A brainwashing technology (television) so addictive that it captured most of everyone’s free time
        — Widespread acceptance of religious fantasies in place of reason or scientific analysis
        — Near universal use of pharmaceuticals in place of health.

        2- TESTING
        —The orchestrated attack upon the Triple Towers accompanied by a plot that required the suspension of the laws of physics, rejection of all non-official information, and imposition of national Homeland Insecurity.
        — Conclusion: If the sheep will buy that, we can sell them anything.

        “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the US public believes is false.”
        William J. Casey CIA director

        3-ZOMBIFICATION

        —Inject six billion people all over the globe with a untested genetic alteration sold to them as a vaccination against a pandemic created by fraudulent data.
        — Among the many “side effects” the genetically modified victims experience is reduced or destroyed abilities to rationally understand what has been done to them. AKA “long COVID”

        —Is it any wonder that half of Americans still believe that their “vaccinations” protect them against the Virus, and “it would have been much worse if I hadn’t been vaccinated.”
        —The currently evolved Omicron variety of COVID has about the same effect as the common cold and provides immunity far longer lasting than the mRNA gene therapies, yet idiot “influencers” like ex-President Obama still urge people to endanger their health by getting “vaccinated” or boosted against COVID variants long since extinct in the wild.
        —Billilons of people worldwide are still being subject to “testing”
        by the PCR procedure and allowing the “results” to determine the level of “freedom” they are permitted. In spite of the Nobel Prize winning inventor, Kory Mullis repeatedly cautioning that his PCR test is completely useless for medical diagnosis. Even the CDC admitted it was worthless in mid-2021, but it is still being used worldwide.

        4-WAR: The ultimate expression of capitalist market cycles— demand destruction and rebuilding.

        Is it any surprise that 95% of Americans believe that escalating an economic war (every bit as much an act of war as one involving soldiers and bombs) against the second most highly nuclear armed country in the world is a good idea. They have been prepared as Believers, but not as Warriors as their Russian counterparts were by WWII.

        I’d say that Director Casey won.

          POLICY MADNESS:

          China is on the verge of closing down their entire economy and locking down their population in an attempt to achieve the Government policy goal of ZERO COVID. There is exactly Zero chance of success, regardless of how good it sounds in some politicians speech.

          We have enough real world examples based upon the known characteristics of respiratory virus transmission and mutation to verify this logical conclusion. Maintenance of a Zero Covid state is only possible in a population entirely isolated from the rest of the world. And even on tiny atoll in the middle of the Pacific ocean that isolation is eventually breached.

          CUBA

          During the first year of the COVID outbreak the city of New York had over 70,000 COVID related deaths. Cuba had only 37 COVID deaths, achieved by totally closing the island to the outside world. As near to total success as one could imagine. However Cuba could not live without their major source of foreign exchange, tourism. They attempted to isolate tourists in a separate ghetto, but the nano sized virus soon found a way through, and Cuba now has an active case load in excess of 8,000, similar to other tourist economies.

          NEW ZEALAND

          With a government that evolved into a totalitarian state that exceeded anything the most extreme critics of Cuba could imagine, NZ officially tried to arrive at Zero COVID and failed. Before a limited re-opening of the country they vaccinated the majority of citizens with the US-approved Phizer/Moderna mRNA experimental gene therapy—- a failed technology with “side effects” more dangerous than COVID itself. So they now have a population with a highly compromised natural immune system and lowered defense against all forms of disease, as well as increased susceptibility to blood clotting, stroke, and miscarriage.

          SWEDEN

          Sweden is the one European country that refused to lock down the entire country in the face of an apparent Pandemic. After two years the results are undeniable. Medical impact of the COVID virus was the same or less than neighboring countries that followed misguided lock down policies and destroyed their economies as a result.

          CHINA

          China is the manufacturing epicenter of the World. If it is locked out of commerce the impact will throw the entire world into a crisis that will render the Ukrainian war a mere blip on the horizon of history.

          China, do you really want to do that in pursuit of a goal that is impossible to achieve?

          The ultimate irony is that China’s lock down policy is an attempt to suppress an outbreak of the Omicron COVID variety, a mutation with symptoms and threat about the same as the common cold. Omicron is not the threat, but rather the solution to the Pandemic. During the first month of it’s spread there were exactly three fatalities in the entire world, and even those were likely due to comorbidity. In exchange for a risk so low it is difficult to measure, being infected with Omicron provides acquired immunity measured in years against a broad spectrum of viral infections. By suppressing Omicron, governments suppress acquired immunity and assist Medical Totalitarianism in its goal of perpetual “vaccine” boosterism.

          • ThorsHammer March 21, 2022 at 2:56 am #

            China just announced that it has recorded two deaths from COVID in the entire past year. Meanwhile it has locked down major regions that are at the center of its manufacturing, all in the face of the new “threat” from the Omicron variant.

            There is only one thing in the world that is without limit: human stupidity.

    Is the USA interested in a peace settlement?

    No.
    For the reasons you’ve outlined. The US doesn’t care about Ukraine. It is simply another proxy war and weapons testing area for the US arms industry. All those javelin missiles and other weapons systems cost big money. One of the few actual manufacturing industries the US has left is in weapons.

    Or do we want to drive events further toward tragedy and our own national suicide?

    Whether it is intentional or not, that seems to be what is happening. A proof for this is what is happening on the southern border. There is a logic in allowing population replacement, when your current demographic is using meth, fentanyl, or just plain ole bullets, to mass suicide itself.

        According to the analysis of the Ukraine matter I have been watching every day by The Duran on Rumble, this military operation is close to being settled.

        This is what Putin has done from the start. He tried to have Ukraine hold up to the Minsk Accords for seven years and after 14,000 Russians living in the Donbas were shelled and murdered by the Ukraine military he decided it was time to go in to “protect them”.

        Just like with Obama’s and Samantha Power’s “Responsibility 2 Protect” in Libya.

        Plus Zelensky kept threatening to join NATO.

        Add to the mix all the CIA trained Nazis in the Ukraine military plus many in the government (Azov Battalion and the Right Sector) then the 30 US Bioweapons labs which Putin has the goods on and that was a big RED LINE to be crossed.

        Now it appears Putin has cauldroned off the Donbas and Crimea and Zelensky is now ready to have a chat about the whole matter.

        The Duran has great guests on their podcasts like Tom Luongo and a lawyer named Robert Barnes and others. They appear to have a grip on the politics, sanctions, other economic matters etc. It is all way more informative than any “news” we will get from MSM.

        I am left with The Duran, Tucker, Jimmy Dore, Max Blumenthal, Glenn Greenwald and Aaron Mate for news.

      Have you noticed that the propaganda spouting from the MSM grows increasingly strident and ffrantic day by day? Ukraine was housing foreign “volunteers” in a hotel, and the Russians dropped a cruise missile on top of it, killing 35 and serves them right. I bet you didn’t hear about that on CNN. Vlad has put us on notice that they will bomb weapons cconvoys that enter the Ukraine. Rusia has the goods on us in regards to the biolabs. Apparently there were 25 of them. China has it’s feathers severely ruffled over that. Though our ambassador to the UN has denied it, that skank,Victoria Nuland, has admitted it, as has the state department. Not only that, but I hear the Russians have the goods on the Biden crime family–enough to hang both Hunter and Joe several times over. Wouldn’t that put the cat among the pigeons?

      I have to switch from sending my modest contribution to Orlov from Patreon to another site. Perhaps our esteemed host might want to consider such a move. Its only a matter of time for him, as well. Orlov will hardly be inconvenienced at all. Russia can sell it’s oil elsewhere. Meanwhile, gas is over $7 a gallon in Holywood–coming soon to a gas station near you. Who is actually being pinched here? The Saud and the UAE have apparently rebuffed Biden’s advances. We might end up buying from Iran and Venezuela. I’m sure they won’t sell without major concessions. One might have thought he would have made prior arrangements before sanctioning Russian oil. Biden isn’t budging on restrictions on producing our own, either.

      The credit card companies have shut off the Russsian’s lines of credit, so the populace was issued new cards out of China. If I were among them, I wouldn’t pay my outstanding balance. Let Visa sue me. Technically, the Ukraine fell on the second day of the invasion. The mop up may not thebe going as smoothly as was planned, Like the Philippines when Marcos took over and the communist took to the mountains, the remainder of Azov battalions might end up as bands of thugs and guerrillas festering in the more inaccessible and out-of-the-way places taking pot shots at passersby. Of course, we’ll supply them candestinely with arms.

        “I have to switch from sending my modest contribution to Orlov from Patreon to another site. ”

        I also got the message from Dmitry, but the links he provided to move to Boosty were not live.

        There is no way for me to figure out how to get to Boosty and transfer my subscription there.

        Plus, I had just been charged by Patreon for my annual fee for the Orlov subscription, and now have nothing to show for it.

        Instead of just “here” he should have taken the trouble to type out the two relevant URLs.

        Also, what about the annual subscription that is now worthless?

        I am a bit miffed.
        I think Orlov could have managed this better for his subscribers with little trouble to himself.

    Global Famine is one of the larger agendas of the Ukraine conflict. This will be almost effortless beyond sanctions on Russian fertiliser. Famine is the third part of the trifecta of pestilence and war. A predictable rerun of earlier hostilities.
    India’s familiarity with bureaucratically-induced famine during the East India Company’s reign of terror is unequivocal on this point. Mao’s Great Leap Forward also ushered in massive famine with central planning inspiration.

      The whole world is facing global famine because one country’s wheat crop is at risk? Get a grip! There are lots of other large countries that grow wheat such as Canada and the U.S. Ever been to Alberta or Manitoba? They have a whole lot of land up there to grow food, and they’re getting more all the time if you believe in global warming. Argentina made a fortune growing wheat during World War I. There’s no reason they couldn’t do it again. I heard they need money.

        Topical issue in Todays ‘Briefing”

        CONGRESSMAN WARNS OF FOOD SHORTAGES: In a House hearing last week, Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA) warned of global “hunger and the disruption of democracies in the Western hemisphere because of the lack of food supply.” The effects of fertilizer shortages will be felt within 12 months, he said. Scott made brief mention of an intelligence report that estimated that a “5-10 percent reduction in the global food supply” would pose threats to “people in the Western hemisphere and the potential disruption of democracies” there. “I do think this is coming,” Scott said. (Analyst Comment: Rep. Scott is from Georgia, a heavily agricultural state. He reports that the higher cost of diesel fuel and fertilizer will lead to decreased domestic food production. Meanwhile, the latest estimate is that Ukraine will have about 50% of normal yields this year. Russia and Ukraine account for about 12% of global food. If reports of yield reductions are true and the trend of countries cutting off fertilizer and food exports continue, then we will likely experience that 5% drop in food production, causing global food shortages as soon as this year and into 2023.

      • Islander March 14, 2022 at 1:05 pm #

        “The whole world is facing global famine because one country’s wheat crop is at risk? Get a grip!”

        Not “the whole world” in the same way.

        Many countries are more dependent on grain from “wheat basket” Ukraine and Russia than others. Many of those countries do not have viable alternatives because their own ecologies of water and forests were totally destroyed by the activities of earlier H. sapiens a few thousand years ago: Greece, North Africa, Mesopotamia (Iraq), Persia (Iran), Palestine and Lebanon . . .

        Plato wrote about this problem of erosion and destruction, don’t don’t quarrel with me.

        Other countries will likely be more impacted by costs of transportation to urban centers.

        Here in the USA I look at the moiunds of even fresh produce that is sold in small, one-use plastic containers. The whole supply chain is now dependent on plastic packaging even for a large percentage of the produce sold.

        Then there is the distribution within the country.

        Slight farther down the road is the salinization and pollution of the Central Valley in California owing to decades of irrigation.

        https://www.watereducation.org/post/salinity-central-valley-critical-problem

        And our own grain and corn production is dependent on intense fertilizer application and fossil fuels to run the machinery.

        Just trying to “get a grip” on the many hazards facing food production and distribution . . .

        • TaxDonkey March 17, 2022 at 12:05 am #

          As far as I can tell, the really big deal at the moment is natural gas shortages directly leading to ammonia-based fertilizer shortages. No fertilizer = much less food. At the same time, many countries have turned to natural gas for generating electricity. The middle east for example. Or Europe since solar panels are working so well. NOT. So there’s an inherent competition between food and electricity with respect to natural gas.

          The global population is in too deep now with the status quo to turn on a dime and 7.8 billion people suddenly start small scale farming and using human feces for fertilizer.

They all believed they were superheros and totally rejected the perfectly apparent fact that men are bigger, stronger, and faster than women. Physically, we simply don’t measure up. When I told them I once was bested by an 11-year-old boy in a play wrestling match, they scoffed. I can only suppose they’ve never had a man show them his strength. The wierdest thing about the conversation was that it was instigated by a woman who was in a BDSM relationship and found nothing odd about spouting exteme feminist nonsence from the safety of her dom’s protection. I can only suppose it amused him, as he allowed it. She got herself so worked up that she was forbidden facebook the next day.

It is no surprise to me that DJT has done, and will do in 2024, so well with the Legio Hispania. People from the “global south” are 19th century thinkers.

            Hard to believe that until 2019 lynching was perfectly legal in this country. If only we’d known! So many missed opportunities…

            Poor bastard (Juicy that is), he’s still a victim according to the articles I pulled up. Triple helping of reparations for poor Juicy.

    “America has no intention of actually defending Ukraine. It’s really just a global version of the interpersonal game “Let’s You and Him Fight,” as described by pioneering psychologist Eric Berne (1910 -1970), father of transactional analysis.”

    YES! This game also fits precisely with the Chinese order of battle. The Chinese will use states in their sphere of influence to fight their adversaries. North Korea anyone? I need a score card.

    The Bush/Clinton/Obama/Biden Crime Syndicate, a faction of the WEF Global Billionaire Cartel, has been using Ukraine like a bidet to clean themselves for many years, so in this war they seek the destruction of evidence, and the canceling of Russia. They crossed the Rubicon at the meeting in the oval office where they plotted to take down Gen. Flynn – they’ve been ALL IN GLOBALLY since. Even most ‘red-pilled’ Americans are only now seeing that.

    The Syndicate knew it couldn’t hold America with it’s political agenda – they knew this for certain when Trump won the election in 2016 and they have implemented plans to hold power. Those plans included a giant boner for Russia. But the syndicate needed help, and they got help from China, who was already embedded like a tick on our scalp. The Syndicate, and it’s membership are fairly sick individuals with some really bad habits. They’re all easily corrupted, and there is plenty-o-Chinese-cash to make that happen. Cheap-money. The point being, now that the Syndicate has found a patron in China, they must continue doing China’s bidding.

    The Russians are fighting back against being canceled. Neither America nor Russia come out of this stronger and Ukraine gets flushed.

    Cui bono?

    Only China benefits.

    • zekesdad March 14, 2022 at 11:34 am #

      The big problems with your analysis is that China and Russia are now best friends, Russia and the U.S. aren’t fighting each other, and no one made Putin attack Ukraine.

        Keep your friends close and your enemies closer…

        Smiling faces, sometimes… pretend to be your friend.

        Enemies, is probably too harsh a word for the Chinese towards the Russians, perhaps competitor is a better word. I believe, from what I’ve read over the years that China see’s it’s destiny as world leader.

        The Chinese will encourage the Russian – American conflict from both sides of the issue, and they are absolutely giddy with the prospect of these two heavy weights pummeling each other on the ropes. The Chinese version of “Let’s you and him fight,” is a variation of Muhammad Ali’s “Rope a Dope,” only in this case both dopes are on the rope.

    Seems to me, the powers that be have to manufacture distractions. Has anyone noticed nothing works anymore? I’ve been getting bills from the local medical monolith. They billed me $1,240.00 and when I checked my statement from United Healthcare, I owed $42.08. Another bill was for $391.50 on an original $906.00 charge. My insurance company has never seen that particular bill. I am not even sure it is mine How many poor folks are just paying these charges? Will they every see a refund?

    My tax return went to the state authority. A letter arrives claiming they need copies of my W-2 and 1099’s. Alas, my copy 2’s are missing because I sent them in with my return. Somewhere at the tax authority, part of my tax return went MIA. No doubt, this is my just punishment because I won’t e-file. I made copies of the documents and sent them off Hopefully, my small refund will be properly applied to next year’s taxes as I requested.

        Copy fed is for the fed return. Copy 2 is for state returns. Copy c is your copy. That is why I knew I sent in my documents because my copy 2’s were missing.
        However, many times a 1099 is only one copy. The only thing I expect is from them is to keep my paperwork together until someone can process it. It is kind of like them saying they don’t have your tax return but they cashed the check you sent with it.

    They don’t really want the problem solved in Ukraine. Instead they want to ramp it up even further starting with non-kinetic warfare. Hillary, the neocons and the neolibs were more or less looking for world war III with Russia before Trump got in the way of the party. I guess they couldn’t forgive them for crimea, Snowden and RT. Now they want to bring the world down in flames just like the USA and along the way we can be jabbed every month so we can consider ourselves safe as they feed us safe news and protect against unsafe misinformation, which will be useful down in the bunkers.

    • thirdcoastlegend March 14, 2022 at 11:05 am #

    42 false flags admitted to by the govt.s that committed them.(https://washingtonsblog.com/42-admitted-false-flag-attacks/) We are on the cusp of several more, coming to a neighborhood near you. William Casey, head of the CIA whenever, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false”. Mission Accomplished !! Like getting everyone to believe we live in a democracy. What happens when 51% of the people vote to kill the other 49%, which is basically what is happening now. Only I call it mob rule. That is why our constitution states we live in a constitutional republic based on the rule of law. LMFAO!!
    So, without further ado, and for your listening pleasure, we present to you Smash Mouth. Better take heed…..

    It ain’t no joke I’d like to buy the world a toke
    And teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
    And teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
    Hey I know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe
    This is a love attack, I know it went out but it’s back
    It’s just like any fad, it retracts before impact
    And just like fashion it’s a passion for the with-it and hip
    If you got the goods they’ll come and buy it
    Just to stay in the clique

    So don’t delay, act now, supplies are running out
    Allow, if you’re still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
    But if the offer’s shunned
    You might as well be walking on the sun

    Twenty-five years ago they spoke out and they broke out
    Of recession and oppression and together they toked
    And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
    Just singing and clapping, man, what the hell happened?
    Then some were spellbound some were hell-bound
    Some they fell down and some got back up and
    Fought back against the melt down
    And their kids were hippie chicks, all hypocrites
    Because fashion is smashing the true meaning of it

    So don’t delay, act now, supplies are running out
    Allow, if you’re still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
    But if the offer’s shunned
    You might as well be walking on the sun

    It ain’t no joke when a mama’s handkerchief is soaked
    With her tears because her baby’s life has been revoked
    The bond is broke up, so choke up and focus on the close up
    Mr. Wizard can’t perform no godlike hocus-pocus
    So don’t sit back, kick back and watch the world get bushwhacked
    News at ten, your neighborhood is under attack
    Put away the crack before the crack puts you away
    You need to be there when your baby’s old enough to relate

    So don’t delay, act now, supplies are running out
    Allow, if you’re still alive, six to eight years to arrive
    And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
    But if the offer’s shunned
    You might as well be walking on the sun

      The word “bedrock” would probably be more suited to people who didn’t deliberately have children they can’t afford,
      with fathers they can’t identify.

            That Luongo article posted above had a good theory on this It makes sense they would want to do this, keeping in mind that Russia and China have been buying gold hand over fist for quite a few years now and the US probably doesn’t have much. If Russia offers a discount for oil with the stipulation that payment must be made in physical metal, this is a problem for the West because most of the gold that theoretically exists is only paper not backed by the real thing. The usdebtclock.org in the bottom right corner it shows the paper to actual metal ratio is over 100! If people don’t want paper anymore, this whole fraudulent market blows up. One analogy is that when you pull into the gas station, you don’t want a paper certificate of gasoline contract, you want the actual commodity. If the market blows up, then those who have the gold make the rules, or so the saying goes….

  19. Claire Potter March 14, 2022 at 11:09 am #

    Great article. Russia has many reasonable security reasons for its Ukraine, a US vassal state, military operation,. One of the reasons must be the US biological “research facilities” in the Ukraine. Putin knows that COVID-19 is a reckless US/European WEF inspired war on the world.

    Last time we dropped any bombs of significance we had Truman (a Democrat) sitting in the Oval Office. Biden keeps claiming that he wants to be the modern day FDR (another Democrat, if not closet Socialist). I am sure that Biden want to follow in both FDR’s and Truman’s footsteps to boldly lead us through this “Russian war of aggression” and reinstitute some fireside chats.

          Sure, truth is the first casualty in a war, but the Ukranian cities we see every day being shelled and bombed by airplanes are not military targets. It would only make sense if some of the collateral damage was to places such as hospitals and orphanages. Millions of refugees are not fleeing to countries like Poland for nothing.

            The pregnant lady coming out of the bombed hospital is a famous yukie model, who they showed several takes of going back in and out and then after her ambulance drove away they caught a picture of her standing around outside the hospital again.

    I believe two events, under the radar, will affect the confidence necessary in the banking system, not from a plebe perspective, from a professional one. FX ownership has now been shown to be an illusion! You do NOT own what the system said you did. Laws? We don’t need no stinkin laws (to follow). Holy Shit Batman! On a smaller scale, the traitor in Canada executed this on a personal scale, destroying any confidence in Canadian banking laws. We are now seeing theft, cloaked as anti-Russian valor, throughout Europe. Again – laws are now malleable and dependent on what WE feel is right.
    Society is now “saying” thru actions that laws ,based on established principles, can be ignored. You’re now left with. – If you can’t defend it, you don’t own it. Mortgage paid off? Sorry, doesn’t apply to this situation, you’re Russian.
    How long until this permeates the financial realm, rending asunder the dollar hegemony? CIPS anyone? Got PM’s?

How many people have died from the vaccine vs. how many from Covid itself? Do you have even a rough estimate of the actual numbers or a percentage? The last time I checked the “official” death count from the vaccine was over 800,000. Some say that the count is being inflated by a corrupt medical establishment in order to get more federal money. Again, who exactly is doing that, and how has it been hidden so long by so many people? I’ve taken the vaccine and the booster, as have most all the people I know. None of them have had bad reactions to the vaccine, and a few have caught a mild case of covid. The people I know or know about who have died or have serious long-term problems from Covid are the ones who refused to get the vaccine or wear a mask

    You must have a very pessimistic view of the American people if you think they would be disappointed if the problems in Ukraine were suddenly stopped. I see a universal revulsion at the murderous war crimes and destruction at the hands of Vladimir Putin. The way to stop the problem he started is for him to order his forces to retreat. Joe Biden isn’t the one risking World War III, Putin is. He’s the one who marched into a peaceful country that is no threat to Russia or anyone else. He’s the one who put his nuclear forces on high alert. It is he who is creating a humanitarian crisis, and threatening NATO, a defensive organization. You contradicted yourself when you said, “The U.S. government now seeks a wider kinetic war over its would be client state, Ukraine.”; You then said, “America actually has no intention of actually defending Ukraine.” Which is it? I hope the U.S. is pouring weapons into that country turning the tables and having for once the U.S. furnishing the weapons to determined guerrilla fighters.

        It was a slip, but not a Freudian one. I meant to say that number was the reported death from Covid. Are you saying there have been more than 800,000 deaths from the vaccine? If so, where did you get that number?

            I read some of the stories. They are terrible.I’m beginning to think most doctors should be imprisoned – or worse. Many of the people had a bout of covid and then they get the shot? Doesn’t make sense to me. Some of the people had bad reactions after the first shot, then take the 2nd shot? Not smart, imo. Some were forced into shots by their employers – who should be jailed.

            We’ve been tripled jabbed. I took a risk because of my age at the time (76). We were lucky, no effects at all, except each time the injection site on my left arm got more sore. I’m done with any more shots. I don’t know if I’ll ultimately be brought down by the vax, but I’ve already lived most of my life, so I’m fine with any ultimate problem. Same with my wife.

            I think what gets me is how willing a large percentage of the public just unquestioningly gets their shots. I read today the medical authorities are saying people will soon need a 4th shot. I just foresee an announcement down the line that everyone will need their 20th jab.

            The medical industry needs a major reset now! That would be their 1st anti-jab.

        • Jarek March 14, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

          You have to start at the beginning: the PCR test is meaningless, certainly at the cycles they ran it at. In any case, it was never designed for this. Thus the Pandemic was a Case-a-demic. The creator begged them not to use it this way, but it was the perfect false positive machine so they did. And of course the Pandemic was also a Plan-demic. The paper trail is quite clear.

          Next step: No big excess deaths in 2020. Just another flu and cold season with those diseases relabeled as covid. The excess deaths started with the Vax.

          Ok, I think I’ve gotten you up to speed.

            Thanks for reminding us of the facts behind the Pandemic of Fear. I first became aware the fraud behind using the PCR test to define the scope of the Pandemic in February of 2020 after about ten minutes of research.

            If a commoner sitting behind a PC in a remote mountain valley could see the fraud clearly on day one, how is it that the forces of Medical Totalitarianism did not know what they were doing and should not pay in front of firing squads?

          So in my state they are doing a Covid recount. I guess it was not as bad as they told us. Originally if you died within 60 days of a covid test you went in the covid column. Now if you were positive within 30 days you go in the covid column. even if you died in a lawnmower accident.

          “‘Beginning Monday, March 14, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) will update the criteria used for identifying COVID-19 deaths to align with guidance from the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. Currently, the COVID death definition includes anyone who has COVID listed as a cause of death on their death certificate, and any individual who has had a COVID-19 diagnosis within 60 days but does not have COVID listed as a cause of death on their death certificate. The updated definition reduces this timeframe from 60 days to 30 days for individuals without a COVID diagnosis on their death certificate.”

            Stelmos:

            So if someone dies because of the jab, and it’s been more than 30 days, they won’t list the cause of death as vaccine related. This whole c.o.d. thing is bullshit. They ought to at least indicate on the death certificate that someone had both the jab and covid within the last 30 or 60 days, if it’s possible to get the info.

            People die all the time, so I think any c.o.d. figures only give an incomplete picture.

        Mothers that have died from Covid can no longer take care of their children either. I don’t doubt that some people have had adverse reactions including death from the vaccine. That’s true of the flu vaccine as well. The question I have is how many. Is the vaccine worse than the disease? James and you seem to think so. I’m just asking to see the data.

      You must have a very pessimistic view of the American people if you think they would be disappointed if the problems in Ukraine were suddenly stopped. I see a universal revulsion at the murderous war crimes and destruction at the hands of Vladimir Putin.

      Perhaps your view of Americans is slightly rose-colored. Are you serious? No one actually wants the war to stop. It’s interesting. We love war, we love acting as if we’re repulsed by it, we are shallow. We know it’s wrong, but we enjoy the concept that it’ll keep going. We are flawed in this way. Remember Shock N’ Awe in 2003? Who didn’t stay up until 4am those first nights watching the bombs drop in Baghdad and shamefully wish to see more?

      It’s something to talk about, posture over and pretend how much it all matters. With covid out of the way, something else has to be all-important, a new punchcard must be publicly filled to maintain status amongst one’s peers.

      Enter (mostly fake) stories of unimaginable war crimes. Babies tossed from incubators. Nazis bayoneting babies. Babies this, kids that. Whatever sounds the worst, that’s the story. The Germans in the 1930s didn’t do much good for the public’s bullshit meter…they got caught up in the joy of death and now people will believe anything because we know some of those things can actually happen.

      Anyway, most all of what we’re hearing right now out of Ukraine is likely bullshit, created for immediate, uncurated ingestion.

      Soldiers shooting each other on the streets during a skirmish? That’s real. Everything else is almost always crap, unworthy of a second thought. Never happened.

    Deagel Study – US population projected to be 100MM in 2025. US population today 330MM. Seventy percent reduction in US population in the next three years.

    What was the vax target rate that we heard over & over & over, ad nauseum? That’s right 70%. The vax is clearly a time-delayed lethal injection – disease(s) needing time to progress & present.

    Too much proof is, and has been, starting to percolate to the surface – becoming harder to hide – they need distraction to hide their complicity in the depopulation goal.

    They’re trying to put as much distance between the “vaccine” and any vax injuries and associated deaths, as possible. It’s our responsibility to keep the pressure on and keep them from burying the truth.

    It never was COVID – it’s the mRNA “vaccine” – every single bit of propaganda, funneling people to the vax. Every one of these complicit evil fuckers needs to hang – the delusional & ill-informed included.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder March 14, 2022 at 12:01 pm #

      While I don’t disagree, I sure hope not. Nearly all of my family and friends jumped on all of that. Don’t want to see them start dropping. “See, I told ya so” won’t really help me in that scenario.

      • Ron Anselmo March 14, 2022 at 12:42 pm #

        Right there with you Mango – my immediate family, myself, wife & two sons are not vaxxed. Everyone else in the extended family – both sides – is vaxxed & boosted.

        One vax injured – previously healthy & active, 48, with two teens – who will never admit it was the vax. One passed from an aggressive cancer – first in family history. One had heart valve replacement – first in family history.

        Won’t stop there unfortunately – just a matter of time – and yes, “See, I told you so” won’t help, nor will those words ever cross my lips. Heartbreaking more like it.

        Best to you and your family.

        • beantownbill. March 14, 2022 at 2:49 pm #

          I doubt the vax is 100% fatal. Nothing is, although some death rates are high for some conditions. I’m sure you know that hundreds of millions have been vaxxed, and how many have already had bad symptoms? A few million? Less than 1%. Remember when people here were saying that covid wasn’t that bad, just a flu because the death rate was only a few percent, just like a traditional flu? And now you’re saying 1% is very bad.

          The body is an amazing structure, and although we know a lot about it, we are far from knowing everything. Yes, it’s obvious that the vax and debilitating symptom rates will go up in the future, but there’s no evidence that it’ll be at 100%, even if some medical people say so, because the future hasn’t happened yet. It’s just conjecture. You don’t know all the body’s defense mechanisms.

    • Paula D March 14, 2022 at 4:20 pm #

      • Ron Anselmo March 14, 2022 at 5:38 pm #

        Your’re right Paula. The combination of excess death rates, coupled with a drop in birth rates, will net a pretty steep decline in population going forward.

    Zelensky still doesn’t realize he’s only a shill and the calvary is not coming, even after all their promises. The UK, France, Germany do not want to get bombed and I imagine they’ve made that very clear to the Biden handlers.

    What worries me is the recklessness of Blinken, Nuland and Zelensky. They must realize on some level that they’ve overplayed their hand and Russia is not going to stop until they’ve achieved a ceasefire. While the war could be over in months, if not weeks, restoring order will take years and ridding the country of the neo-Nazis installed by Nuland won’t be easy.

      “Mr President, we are inspired by your leadership and by the courage and bravery of the Ukranian people! We admire and support you fully! We will continue to send arms, Javelins and Stingers, which the Russians cannot detect and stop.

      Your brave soldiers have inflicted serious blows on the invaders! They are growing weary! Their progress has been stopped. Now you that you are on the cusp of victory, YOU MUST continue to press on! We, errr, YOU, you cannot let victory slip through your hands. You must stay the course and save your country from the Russian barbarians and the devil Putin. In the long run, we will make HIM and all Russians pay for what they have done. But right now, you must continue to fight. Use negotiations to delay, but NEVER submit to the Russian terms. Tell them when every Russian soldier leaves Ukraine, then you will sit down and consider Russian concerns.

      Victory is at hand, President Zelensky! In the unlikely event that things get difficult for you and your family, rest assured, we will guarantee your safety, and that of your loved ones. That is the least we can do.

      However, if you falter, if you walk away from near certain victory, and give Putin what he wants, then our position will become very difficult, and we may not be able to protect you and your family in time. As you know, there are some unsavory elements in our coalition which we cannot control, like the Azov brigade…

      So, if things get difficult, do not compromise or surrender–we will get you out. But if you compromise, that will be more difficult. We can protect you from the Russians, but not from the hard line patriots…

      Again, we salute you and your country, and continue to support your valiant battle against the invader–Godspeed!”

      So what does Volodymyr Zelensky do with that?

        I’m guessing they are more blunt than that.
        In the last 2 weeks, as I recall, he has said 3 times that he is ready to negotiate and then he comes back out and says, No, not really.
        They are telling him something quite openly to change his mind, in my opinion.

          Paula

          The war was essentially over on day two, with the Russians in control of the skies and much of the Ukranian army isolated in enclaves. Any rational leader would have attempted to negotiate as much of the remaining sovereignty of his country into a settlement that would allow it’s survival as a nation-state. There is little evidence that Zelensky is a leader or statesman who could have succeeded. Certainly not in view of the fact that his US sponsors see the conflict as a means to prolong the war as long as possible to bleed Russia to its knees and allow the US economic sanctions war to triumph. Perfect situation to feed in advanced weapons and armed drones to enable guerilla bands to inflict maximum damage. And the US could care less how many bodies stack up along the way or how many Ukrainian wolves feast upon them.

          Least there be any question, Zelensky probably was called into an “advisory conference” in which it was pointed out that his life expectancy could be measured in hours or days if he should actually sue for peace.

    Another great essay today, James. Thank you.

    “The member nations of NATO have even less desire to join the battle, and are doing a poor job of pretending they oppose Russia’s disagreeable but necessary work there.”

    The US apparatus thinks it will be able to bully the rest of the world into submission forever. I think they are caught in Rovian think: They create their own reality. The ‘reality’ seems to be the type of propaganda they believe controls everyone. But it doesn’t control everyone. Twatter and CNN are illusions (maybe even delusions). Even though they are in league with Europe/NATO, there is a limit to what they can do to get the average person to act against our own self-interests. Or so I hope.

    As always, I enjoy your optimism, James. I agree that lots of bad things are gonna have to happen before anything turns around.

    Oh boy! The DC numb nuts are about to jump out of the frying pan and into the lake of fire.

    Jake Sullivan says ‘there will absolutely be consequences’ if China aids Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
    ‘We will not stand by and allow’ China to economically support Russia’s war, Sullivan says

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/jake-sullivan-china-russias-invasion-ukraine

    Top US and Chinese officials hold high-stakes meeting in Rome

    Sullivan told Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that the US was “watching closely” to see whether China provides any support to Russia.

    “It is a concern of ours. And we have communicated to Beijing that we will not stand by and allow any country to compensate Russia for its losses from the economic sanctions,” Sullivan said.

        So what’s your pet non-wacky theory, Redneck, for the 86,000 excess deaths (84% increase) in the healthiest tranche of the US population, the 25-44-year-olds, since the vaxx rollout? And the peaks (in all-cause mortality) which have exactly followed the mandates and the boosters?

        As Ed Dowd says, way more than the 58,000 killed in Vietnam.

        https://lorphicweb.com/shocking-findings-on-increased-deaths-in-25-to-44-year-olds-edward-dowd/

            Calling Redface, calling Redface …

            Thoughts on millennial democide?

            It’s happening in Scotland too. They’re going to ‘investigate’ the increase in all-cause mortality, as if they didn’t already know what it is down to.

            They’re even claiming to be investigating the spike in newborn baby deaths too.

            https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-59347464

            But I wouldn’t hold your breath. It’s a bit difficult investigating something when you already know what’s causing it and you have to come up with something else that doesn’t let the cat out of the bag. Especially when the cat is out of the bag anyway apart from the very tip of its furry little tail.

          • Redneck Liberal March 15, 2022 at 7:12 pm #

            (“Redface”? That’s beneath you, GA.)

            I’ve read the article from the BBC (surprised you used a mainstream outlet that surely you don’t trust). Very interesting. Obviously, you assume that any such outlier statistic is due entirely to the vaccine “plot” because you’ve fallen down that very weird & convoluted rabbit hole. There were some useful facts in the article, such as:

            ” Deaths of newborn babies have fallen steadily in recent decades with the mortality rate per 1,000 births dropping from double figures in the 1970s to 2.1 in 2020.

            Fallen from double figures 50 years ago? Wow.

            Now a single-month spike in cases has triggered a process to investigate. Have they released the October numbers? November? Is this a new trend upwards or a one-off outlier? Clearly, more information is needed to come to some sort of valid conclusion.

            You used to be all evidence-based…no longer, sadly. You’ve got the CT ‘virus’.

          • Redneck Liberal March 15, 2022 at 7:17 pm #

            As for Mr. Dowd’s analysis/interpretation of CDC data (and the graph on that article), what’re his credentials in mathematics? He is surely, with his Blackrock history and the fact that he STILL working in fund management (i.e. capitalistic exploitation of the masses), one of the “Deep State elites”. So?

            Where I come from ‘redface’ denotes nothing more than embarrassment. And you surely should be embarrassed.

            Mr Dowd had insurance industry friends working on the CDC figures with him. Insurance industry folks aren’t interested in ideologies or politics – they’re interested in the evidence base on which they can develop their policies.

            You come up with the same disingenuous nonsense every time you’re asked a question.

            Why don’t you give us your interpretation of why the spike in deaths in 25 to 44-year-olds exactly followed the timing of the boosters and the vaxx mandates. We’re all ears.

    Thanks for the reminders of the GMO injectables toll and the stolen election.
    It is All Ukraine, All The Time here now in the Land Of The Propagandized.
    The sudden concern for the safety and welfare of Ukrainians (after 8 years of ignoring them) would be touching if it weren’t so grotesquely twisted into Hate against Russians.
    The propagandists play us so easily it is disturbing.
    A Russian woman’s statement has been shared on social media…
    A message from Natascha Janssen in the Netherlands:
    “As many of you may know, my mother was born in the former Soviet Union, in Ukraine, where my extensive family is a mix of Russi@ns and Ukraini@ns. Because of this, I feel called to share my vision on the developments in Ukraine.
    With my Russian/Ukrainian roots, I love both nations very much, centuries-old brotherly nations merging with each other. When you asked my Ukrainian-born mother if she felt more Russian than Ukrainian, she replied, ‘That’s a weird question I have no answer to. There is a difference in our language, our music and dance but our hearts are one.’
    This is how I was raised and spent 40 years — the most beautiful holidays of my life — in love and togetherness, experienced in Russia and Ukraine, in the former Soviet Union.
    It’s good that everyone in the Netherlands is now speaking out against waging a war. No one supports war.
    But why was everyone silent when that war started 8 years ago?
    Why didn’t everyone swear at the slaughter of thousands of citizens in Eastern Ukraine?
    Why didn’t everyone swear at Ukraine for not following the Minsk agreements?
    Where was everyone who looked away when 52 people were burnt alive in Odessa?
    Where was everyone who thought it was fine that a 2014 elected government was overthrown and a major European country was taken over by bunch of neo-nazis?
    Where was everyone when the Ukrainian regime took away from Russian Ukrainians their basic human rights?
    Speaking Russian was banned, the right to pensions disappeared for Russians, and children who spoke Russian and had Russian names were no longer welcome at school.
    Where was everyone when torch rallies were organized by neo nazis spouting slogans like “Russians on the gas”?
    And finally, where was everyone who was silent when large parts of this beautiful country, once Europe’s grain barn, were sold to banks and investors for an apple and an egg, e.g. exploitation for genetic manipulations of Monsanto and Europe’s latest mega bio industry?
    My niece in Ukraine saw such a factory farm built in front of her house. The incessant screaming of those animals packed so close together, and then those big deafening silences…
    Take note: In Ukraine there was only one small-scale breed of beef before the country came into the possession of western block.
    Ukraine has been transformed into a vassal of the West for 8 years. A colony. And all this at the expense of man, animal, nature and environment.
    So why only now is the compassion of the people channeled into rage against the war?
    The Ukrainian population has been living in war for 8 years. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have already fled to Russia, including my relatives, like my niece and her family.
    Of course I know that most people have no idea about this side of the story because our news service gives a very one-sided picture of the situation. I’m now providing that information from the other side. Do what you will, but silence is no longer an option for me.
    I can only hope that peace will come soon for ALL Ukrainians, Russian and Ukrainian speakers.”

    • Jarek March 14, 2022 at 1:01 pm #

      Ukraine will only know peace when it is run by Ukrainians for Ukrainians – not by an International Cabal. America? The same.

      The Cabal hides behind their hired thugs so that they get the blame. The Cabal in America blames everything on Whites and any Whites who complain are labeled Nazis. Very similar since many of the same people are involved. And all Oligarchies tend to use the same time tested methods in any case with only the variables being different, not the equations per se.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    The Forward Observer in today’s briefing:

    GAO: THE CAPITOL NEEDS SECURITY UPGRADES: The Government Accountability Office (GAO) called for better preparation before the next large demonstration at the Capitol. GAO says that better use of force, stronger physical barriers, upgraded crowd control training, and realistic training for large, violent crowds are needed. Retention concerns for Capitol Police are notable with personnel attrition up by 60% in FY21 compared to previous years. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger stated that they are understaffed by over 425 officers. (AC: With the upcoming election season and outlook for 2024, Capitol Police are resetting their security posture. Expect the federal government’s domestic security posture long term to increase due to concern that extremism is threatening democracy. – D.F.)

    Apparently, more training is needed to control “large, violent crowds”

    What do they know that we don’t?

    To quote our Host;

    ” the US government now seeks a wider kinetic war over its would-be client state, Ukraine.”

How come they are unable to plan ahead and build a fence to protect the American borders from unlawful entry?

            Islander, I’m pretty sure the dollar will be toast but perhaps the last domino to fall. There’s a pretty good theory out there that Russia will demand physical gold as payment for the purchase of oil and other commodities. He would offer a steep discount for payment in gold and cause a rush of physical gold purchases that would crumble the paper precious metals market very quickly along with the dollar. That’s like the nuclear option but does Putin look like he’s playing games anymore? I think the west made a big mistake by using weaponizing the SWIFT and seizing assets. This will push the world away from the dollar reserve that much faster..A lot of people have commented, including Martin Armstrong, that all the fiat currencies are trash, but if someone decided to force a gold pricing mechanism???

          • Islander March 15, 2022 at 2:03 pm #

            My recollection is that Armstrong speculated that long-term the dollar is probably toast, but short- to medium-term it will still be the least “ugly” currency in our side of the global split.

            As for forcing a gold pricing mechanism, I don’t know who could do that if the globe is split into two halves.

            Why are people piling on me?
            I merely cited a different point of view, namely, Armstrong’s, regarding the “toastification” of the dollar, which most here seem to think is imminent. Armstrong disagreed with this and stated why he thought this.

            OK? Relax. .

        And now they are using the fact that the flu shot doesn’t work to justify forced inoculation with the GMO shot. “The flu shot doesn’t work either but people have to take it, because vaccines aren’t supposed to give you immunity. Duh!”
        And the fact that hospital workers are forced into to it is used to justify forcing everyone else.
        They got balls, I’ll say that!

    The perps and their camp-followers who were responsible for the Covid19 fiasco will be hoping that the memory hole in the US (and maybe the whole world) will be big enough to swallow the uber-questionable Covid19 official narrative. So the memory hole’s jaws are now being exercised to see if they can be sufficiently stretched to engulf and wolf down Covid19, maybe without even a burp. This is certainly possible assuming there are sufficient people whose mindset is not driven by logic. How many of them can there be? Well, every time you see a person currently wearing a mask while walking outdoors or driving alone in a car you are probably seeing a person with impaired logic circuits between the ears.

    r/Volunteers for Ukraine

    Yes, I was here today and blown off the top bunk of my bunk bed in the barracks by the first missile. I made a long post about it but my posts don’t show on this thread for some reason. This is where all the foreign legion troops are, the 35 killed were all Ukrainian mostly due to a direct hit on their barracks next to mine. The base is destroyed, the weapons depot destroyed, possibly the end of the legion. About 60 people with their heads on straight including myself left after the attack. They’re sending untrained guys to the front with little ammo and shit AKs and they’re getting killed. The guys who stayed got bombed again in the afternoon and casualties aren’t clear. If you still want to to join them I’m not sure what the process will be since literally all the infrastructure supporting the training/assignments of volunteers is all destroyed. The guys who are there now will all be going to Kviv and many will die, the legion is totally outgunned and has a few crazy Ukrainian leaders. After the attack one officer wanted to march everyone to Kviv and fight. Absolute insanity. Stay home.

    Jarek: It suddenly all became very real for “the guys”. They are deserting en masse. They still believe in Globo-Homo, but die for it? Globo-Homo is about feeling good. How are you going to feel good without your legs? Or your head?

    They wanted to be initiated into manhood, perhaps. But realized they were just sheep for the slaughter, lead by shepherds who didn’t care about them or perhaps not even themselves. Should have joined the US Marines instead. Or maybe taken a weekend seminar with face painting and drumming. Find that wild man inside…..

      They came to apply those skills attacking people in Ukraine, (like the ones who have cycled through Donbass the past 8 years).

He’s a good guy I know, his heart is in the right place, but he’s fallen for this whole thing. He doesn’t see, the Covid narrative didn’t work so they have to do something fast, get another narrative, voila, Ukraine. What he and we should be talking about is Covid and whos going to be held responsible, the financial disaster and whos going to be held responsible, the DNC and Hillary undermining a president, the problem of our falling energy production and what we are going to do, the Freedom Truckers, the fall of Afghanistan and whos going to be held responsible. We better start worrying about ourselves and this country.

    In a closed system, creation implies destruction.

    If so, one possible question is: is a civilization’s controlled demolition feasible?

    Human beings are nothing more than chaotic agents.

    The good news are that tranquility will return once again.
    The bad news (from a human standpoint) are that there will be no humans around to enjoy it.

    It’s not enough to believe. You have to love. Or hate. And if you love, you will hate those who threaten that which you love. It doesn’t necessarily work the other way around. If you hate, well that may suffice in itself.

    Love=Hate those who threaten that which you love.

    Hate=Love those who threaten that which you hate.

    Ain’t going to happen, Jim! Sorry, but it just isn’t.

    I am witnessing the same hysterical overreaction to Ukraine as I did with Covid (as a sign of how utterly pathetic we are, we are down to banning Russian dogs from Crufts). Everyone I know is wringing their hands over how nasty and bad ‘ol Putin is, spouting the same old one-sided MSM fake bullshit from the same old MSM talking heads, and loudly decrying these ‘expansionist’ Russians ‘invading’ a ‘friendly sovereign nation’ and ousting a ‘democratically elected government’. The inversion is staggering.

    Anything and everything that goes wrong now, be it war with the West, higher energy prices, food shortages, etc. will be the fault of the Russians (previously ‘the unvaccinated’).

    Don’t get in line and put a Ukraine flag on your social media? Cancelled. Don’t cry those crocodile tears? Cancelled. Don’t demonstrate the requisite level of fake outrage? Cancelled.

    There will be no consequences for anybody who perpetrated the Covid/vaccine scam just as there were no consequences for those who have spent the better part of my life destroying one Middle Eastern/African country after another.

Each point of contention would require another fight, so stamina would be a plus. In a fight to the death, I’m sure the ‘leaders’ would pursue every avenue of resolution before it came down to the Big Fight. But better the Big Fight than war!

    “… the biggest complainers about ‘misinformation’ in the USA are biggest spreaders of it… now scent the rot of propaganda… the stench of psyop…”

    The greatest weapon of mass destruction is always the mental torture and highjacking of the citizenry. Without that, Empires cannot function. Empire must direct the thoughts and deeds and attitudes of its Slaves. Always and with no let-up or the illusions quickly disintegrate.

    Misinformation: Anything that goes against The Chosen Holy Narrative that serves The Dark Side.

    The Rules: Empires NEVER can convey anything that is ‘Misinformation’. And THAT of course is the most basic Misinformation of all.

    “Would our country be disappointed if Russia actually solves the problem of Ukraine?”

    The Ukrainian people are suffering. The Russian people are suffering. Americans are suffering. Europe is suffering. Who is not suffering? All those few who are foisting these atrocities against the People of the World. They never suffer, ever.

    “NATO… Do any of these member nations have the stomach to face their own gross institutional failures? Apparently not yet.”

    Make that NEVER. Anyone who rises to a high position of national leadership got their because they NEVER admit guilt or fault or weakness or ever self-evaluate to see if they are on a righteous course. They have convinced themselves of their utter brilliance and near-godhood. And they are always surrounded by plenty of lackeys who keep their high perches by feeding the gross insatiable egos of the Predator Class high chairs.

    “It’s only a matter of time before the swindled public flips and realizes it has been subject to mass murder by bureaucrats, politicians, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and purveyors of the news.”

    Some of the public will get to this place of realization. Many others are so shell-shocked and beaten down and poisoned by toxic injections that they can barely function let alone do much evaluating and assessing.

    “… do we want to drive events further toward tragedy and our own national suicide?”

    WE don’t. But others who hide in the shadows certainly are lusting for this.

    Apparently the Human race is the only form of animal with such a hatred of itself. You don’t see other forms of natural creatures plotting to do away with themselves. You have to be a much-evolved ‘human’ to develop such a delusional quality.

    I know it’s only Monday, so maybe too soon to be straying from matters in hand, but here are two bits of peak something (not sure what) from Airstrip One.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-60667533

    “Nicola Sturgeon has offered a formal apology to people accused of witchcraft between the 16th and 18th centuries, many of whom were executed.”

    Yes, really.

    And:

    https://www.dailymNHS-funded clinic is promoting prostitution as a way for trans people to pay for their treatmentail.co.uk/news/article-10606811/NHS-funded-clinic-promoting-prostitution-way-trans-people-pay-treatment.html

    “NHS-funded clinic is promoting prostitution as a way for trans people to pay for their treatment”

    I think the witchy one wins by a reasonable margin in terms of lunacy, while the other one wins in terms of peak irresponsibility, since it seems to be encouraging transwomen to take risks in some very dangerous places in order to pay their trans bills.

    • MaryQueen March 14, 2022 at 4:28 pm #

        I should have actually said it is the transmen (i.e. biological women) who are at risk in these situations (e.g. ‘in a quiet woodland, late at night’ or in a men-only sauna). Incredible. So, basically, women being put at risk BY transwomen (in women-only spaces) and AS transmen in men-only spaces (and ‘quiet woodlands’).

        • Islander March 14, 2022 at 9:31 pm #

          Is this right?

          “transman” = biological woman with some male trappings.

          “transwoman” = biological man with some female trappings.

          Help! I need a mnemonic!

          I guess “trans” basically means “fake.”

          Now I should be able to keep this straight . . . .

          • GreenAlba March 15, 2022 at 1:35 pm #

            Yes, islander, I think the mistake (in this instance my slip of the tongue) of calling a transwoman a transman has its origins in wrong think. In the trans lexicon one is defined by one’s aspirations, not one’s origins.

            I worked on an American trans medicine and surgery book once years ago, as a freelancer – patients were referred to as FtM or MtF (female to male; male to female). I learned a whole lot about the detail of the bits you can transpose and adapt to make them function as their male or female equivalent. It was quite an eye opener at the time, and my first thought, on seeing the sheer number of operations a person could have to alter their appearance was where the heck does the money come from for all this? They don’t just have the main bits done – there are operations for altering hairlines, shaving down the Adam’s apple or the brow bone, altering the voice box. If they end up looking a million dollars (at least in their own eyes) that’s probably what it literally cost.

            Clinicians don’t always have the foresight to get the patient’s specific permission to use a photo for publication and not just for clinical reasons. I once had to reject a photo of a false willy because it had a tattoo all along it that might have been recognised by either its proud owner or by anyone else who might have had an acquaintance with it. Americans are famously litigious, so you can’t take any risks. 🙂

            Example: Ukraine’s top diplomat said the other day that he thinks there will be a peace agreement between them in Russia – probably in early May. (That’s pretty specific.)

            Also when the Pfizer CEO told us every three months last year the next wave was coming next month or whatever and boosters required. Next month, “new wave” reported and boosters pushed. He also told us in January that we’re going to get back more to normal – probably in February. Surprise, surprise, he must have a crystal ball or a voodoo lady who reads your fortune by squeezing the goat’s testicles.

            They tell the truth about what they know will happen (because they will do it) to create credibility in hindsight, and then they lie about absolutely evreything else to get as much for themselves as possible.

      Mary

      Did you see the CDC report that declared the flu shot this year a miss?

      What did we hear about big surges in flu this winter?

      One thing is claimed by the vaxx folk that I would like to see investigated and validated or thrown out.

      One last claim is being held onto by all the pro folks, that the vaxx blunts the effects of the crud, lowering the incidence of hospitalization and death.

      True or false? I have not even seen words from the anti vaxx zealots, Malone etc. contesting this claim.

      If the vaxx blunts the effect across the board, it risk offsets the adverse effects of the vaxx in the decision process.

      The study would be easy, compare two groups histories, one of vaxxed folks who get the crud, the other unvaxxed who get it. Compare the % of hospitalizations and deaths.

      BTW, I would also like to see the same done with the flu shot, especially seeing they are going to come out with an mRNA variety.

      Are we kidding ourselves here?

        I don’t think the Russians want a lot of destruction. A likely reason they are encircling rather than rushing into the cities with huge forces. Seems more like specially trained operators going in, doing surgical work to excise key areas.

        They want a demilitarized area and denazification. The recognized Republics in the East of the territory will be respected. There is no reason to occupy for any longer than necessary to accomplish these goals.

            French Huegonots were in Florida too in the 1540s, with a large colony near St. Augustine. Spaniards showed up and wiped them out.

          • JohnAZ March 14, 2022 at 8:29 pm #

            Okay, here goes.

            1565 officially settled by Spanish who named it St, Augustine ..Sante Fe NM number two in 1610.

            French Heugonots (sp?) founded a colony there which the Spanish removed upon their discovery.

            The Spanish consolidated population for a hundred years, battling periodically with English groups from Georgia and the Carolinas for control. English never won.

            1763. First Treaty between France and England, French and Indian War, Florida was given to England. After the second Treaty, the Revolution, the area was returned to Spain for helping the USA.

            War ensued with further settlement between the Seminole Indians and Spanish. During this time, Florida became an irritant to the Southern states as escaped slaves could go to St. Augustine, swear allegiance to the Spanish Crown, convert to Catholicism and be freed. It was known as the first Underground Railroad.

            After that settled, the young USA realized how strategic Florida was and bought it from Spain. A good guess is that the Southern states had a lot of influence with that purchase.

            Florida was a contentious issue as the duel between the North and South happened during the early 1800s. It was not admitted as a state until 1845 as a result.

          • JohnAZ March 14, 2022 at 8:33 pm #

            The two treaties were the Treaty of Paris 1763 which ended the French and Indian War in the colonies and the Treaty of Paris 1783 which ended the Revolutionary War.

          “Virginia was a penal colony.
          Indentured.
          Debtors.”

          Not according to David Hackett Fischer, “Albion’s Seed.”The great majority of Virginia’s upper elite came from families in the upper ranks of English society” (p. 216. Many were younger sons.

          As for the non-elites, “Virginia’s immigrants in the late seventeenth century were mostly indentured servants whose families had been poor tenant farmers and country laborers. . . . Most of Virginia’s servant-immigrants were half-grown boys and young men. Three out of four were between the ages of fifteen and twenty-four. Only 3 percent were under fifteen, and less than 1 percent was over 35. More than a few of these youngsters were “spirited,” or kidnapped, to Virginia. . . .” etc. (p231). Very interesting reading. Completely different profile from those who settled New England and from a different part of England.
          Indentured servants are not debtors.
          “Albion’s Seed” is a fascinating book, and a great read. Lots of interesting maps and other illustrations.

            They are indentured because they must work off a debt.

            “Boy, you’re dull.

            “You must think you’re peerage ”

            Boy, rude little shit flinger.

            In fact, you seem to have a significant misanthropic chip on your shoulder regarding New England vs. other North American colonies. My guess: You are a Florida patriot. Whatever.

            “Virginia was a penal colony.
            Indentured.
            Debtors.”

            Transport of convicts to Virginia in the later 18th C. does not make Virginia a penal colony, namely,
            “penal colony, distant or overseas settlement established for punishing criminals by forced labour and isolation from society.”

            Albion’s Seed concentrates on the founding of four colonies in North America. The Virginia colony was a second wave of English colonists, after the first wave, which went to New England. It was founded and established in the 17th C. It was not established as a penal colony and it did not become a penal colony via the transport of convicts there.

            Fischer is renowned for his exhaustive combing and knowledge of primary sources that shed light on the origins of the groups of people he studies in Albion’s Seed. His work is also exhaustively documented with long notes presenting different analyses of the available data. I see nothing in Fischer’s work to suggest that Virginia was a penal colony in the first century after its founding. Fischer provides figures for the origins of the population of Virginia and a very detailed discussion on this subject in the notes.

            The passage of the Transport Act in 1718 and numbers of convicts ending up in Virginia and Maryland in the course of the 18th C didn’t transform Virginia into a “penal colony.” The article you cite provides no documentation of its assertions as to numbers and lists no sources of figures and dates, other than the date of the act.

    Good news for anti-nazis, bad news for Empire lackeys…
    The Russian MOD says that today DPR forces, supported by the Russian military, destroyed almost all of the Ukrainian positions in the suburbs of Mariupol, with Special Forces “eliminating the main neo-Nazi forces in residential areas along the perimeter of the city”.

    “The successful operation to unblock the city made it possible to open humanitarian corridors for civilians to leave from 3 p.m. today and to begin the mass evacuation of the population, which had been held hostage by the neo-Nazis for a long time.”

    • Paula D March 14, 2022 at 8:09 pm #

      The Empire lackeys are screaming in agony as their proxies are eliminated.
      Expect a chemical weapons attack to be blamed on the Russians.
      I can think of two commenters on this blog stupid enough to believe it.
      They used it in Syria, more than once, and it worked, because Americans be stupid.

      All this property being seized in western countries belonging to private citizens, not members of the Russian government. Not only yachts, but other assets like estates, houses, apartments, bank accounts and so on. Not one of these countries nor NATO is at war with Russia, so how is it legal? And who will end up owning these seized assets?

      • JohnAZ March 14, 2022 at 8:44 pm #

        Do not forget the other side, that Russia is going to take all the properties that American Corporations are walking away from in Russia. I would which side has more at stake?

        IMHO, Putin understands everything that is going on now and will win the battle of the Ukraine revolution. The US press is so-o-o full of BS here and Putin is about to make them and their Deep State sponsors look like fools.

        What really bothers me is the collusion between the Deep State and globalist elements trying to weaken the Russians for takeover by the global groups after the US is subjugated. I do not know who to root for here, and I am really afraid that the US government is not it.

          The US elite is the biggest stakeholder in the new world order.

          The US military is the muscle end of enforcing. The financial system is financial enforcement. Silicon valley/hi tech and the MSM are the “soft power”. Big Pharma plays with drugs.

          They all benefit from this arrangement, and enable it.

          They have achieved take-off velocity, and are too powerful to stop.

          But there is still room and space, diminishing daily of course, for Americans to lead decent, somewhat free, lives.

          What I hope for is what the Russians (say they) want: a neutralized and neutral Ukraine, where the US and NATO sign a document to that effect, and in return, if we comply, we trust the Russians to leave West Ukraine alone, and accept that they own East Ukraine.

          While this will be a victory for the Russians, if NATO and Russia abide by the terms, the world will be a more peaceful place, less risk of world war.

          And as a bonus, perhaps more Americans might reconsider why NATO is so important and why the US must meddle in every corner of the globe.

          I don’t see this happening though. I see the Russians feeling compelled to stay in the Ukraine for the long haul, with a US sponsored armed insurgency in the Western Ukraine that will turn the Western Ukraine into another Syria, becauses the US will support a war, because this is perceived to be in the “best interests” of the US/Western establishment.

          I don’t think it is. The world will become bipolar. Instead of the “good” USA led West vs “bad” USSR, it will be the USA/NATO/Australia/Japan in an economic competition against Chinese-led “non-West”, where China, Russia, India, SE Asia, South America and Africa will cooperate.

          As our host has noted often, resource scarcity will result in global competition, perhaps violent. As long as neither side feels as it is done, it should not go nuclear.

          Each side faces serious internal problems and challenges, but they are different. In the West, we live beyond our means, are debt-ridden, and have just cut off our nose to spite our face to denying our economy of vital resources we needed from Russia and damaging trade more. We are old and sott…

          The rest of the world, it is a struggle to survive, even at the much lower standard of living. But people are tougher and can take it.

          We are in the home stretch of human history as we have known it. Should anyone care to study history a hundred years from now, they may cite the US-led economic sanctions against Russia as the event that sparked the beginning of the end. Time will tell.

      • Socrates-Detroit March 14, 2022 at 10:48 pm #

        Just watching the US MSM… they’ve been caught with the labs, so the US news pre-emptively blames any incident on the Russians.

        On Fox, you see reporters say they are near the action… how many reporters have you seen in a Ukranian unit that’s engaged Russian forces?

        The Russians are “bogged down”. Are they? Why? Because they didn’t overrun everything in a week or two?

        What if they are basically controlling the choke points and waiting things out.

        Unlike Americans (even during the 1960s when people were patriotic) who were fighting 10,000 miles away for an idea, the Russian public sees Russian soldiers fighting next door for their country. Has any US media ever mentioned that, for Russia, Ukraine is an existential threat? It’s not a war “to make the world safe” for them.

        Basically, the US media today is like Pravda, circa 1970 or 1980. Whatever the say, it’s likely the opposite is true.

        How sad. It is disgraceful.

        • Socrates-Detroit March 14, 2022 at 10:55 pm #

          The “ghost of Kiev”? Is Santa Claus next?

          The information from the Russian government appears more correct.

          Since the Russians have lost the propaganda war in the West, and since the West has sanctioned Russian individuals because they are….Russian, perhaps the Russians have decided that at this moment, saying less, but being factually correct whenever they say something, will help their credibility with China, India, Brazil, Africa, and the rest of the world.

          Do you think the US government has credibility in these areas?

          Is there a contrast between US harsh sanctions for Russian invasion vs US statements and actions about Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam? There is, and the Asians, Africans,and South Americans see it. If they don’t, THEIR media and govt point it out for them.

          That’s not going to help us Americans out in the future.

          I was telling my husband last night about how the US/NATO were stockpiling mercenaries and weapons over the border from Poland and how Russia bombed them and the mercenaries left.
          As I said to Jarek, they expected to have Afghanistan redux, where they could shoot goat herders for fun, with backup air support. Once faced with Mother Russia protecting her children they up and left.
          My husband said, Oh, is that what happened. NPR only said that Russia bombed too near the border with Poland and that was dangerous, but they never mentioned that the US had piled up truckloads of weapons.

          • Paula D March 15, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

    Does that make NATO or America a crazy manipulative girl? What entity is analogous to the third boy she leaves with? Or does she leave with the “winner”? Is the girl too pretty to be held accountable? I think she hasn’t aged out yet judging by the continued influx at our border.

    Putin ordered a strike in far Western Ukraine on one of the main supply routes. Message sent? I will destroy your supply efforts if you increase supply efforts. For once, Biden listened about the jets he nixed, they would have been destroyed before even utilized.

    Number two, Ukraine is going to lose this. Anything giving support to the Ukraine zealots is going to cause the death and destruction of even more people and infrastructure. The only given right now is if anyone tries to arm Ukraine or otherwise support them, they are going to be clobbered.

    Tucker said Zelensky gave a good speech saying the he is considering entering into serious negotiations – meaning a neutral Ukraine. Dead silence throughout the land. This goes against the War Hawk narrative and the Global Reset narrative. The American power structure doesn’t want this.

    • SoftStarLight March 15, 2022 at 3:06 am #

      I agree. It’s very clear the power structure at the very least wants a protracted conflict and possibly some sort of regime change within Russia. I shudder to think what else they could be up to. Some wonder if the biolabs could have had a connection to covid and other things the elites wish to keep hidden. As I mentioned below some think the elites want to collapse the food supply and supply chains generally. In pretty much each calculus they see themselves consolidating their power. To be against escalating the war is thus literally an act of treason to them and they are verbalizing that more and more.

      • Islander March 15, 2022 at 10:27 am #

        “and other things the elites wish to keep hidden.”

        Sorta like the Nazi regime wanted to keep the concentration camps and their inmates hidden.

        Hence, forced marches of prisoners out of hte camps, and attempts at destruction of evidence as the RUSSIAN army advanced westward.

        The Russians were the first to see the atrocities.

        • SoftStarLight March 15, 2022 at 12:36 pm #

          I wonder if we will ever find out the truth of what was/is really going on over there. I imagine they might have been doing horrible experiments and literal Frankenstein type research. They chose Ukraine for a reason and I don’t think it had as much to do with Russia (though I believe they always wanted to goad them) as it did with them being able to operate rather freely in a country that was unstable enough to have such lawlessness occurring.

          • Islander March 15, 2022 at 1:01 pm #

            ” operate rather freely in a country that was unstable enough to have such lawlessness occurring.”

            This seems likely.

            A country run by oligarchs and gangs, where trafficking of girls was rife, possibly organs—who knows? When gangs murder people, why would they waste the organs if there is a market for them, maybe especially organs of Europeans.

          • Jarek March 15, 2022 at 1:03 pm #

            They had some in Georgia too – a much more stable country but on the Russian border. Did they want to ring Russia with these labs, along with missile bases?

            I wouldn’t be surprised to see a false bio-flag coming out of this. Or an accident, either real or engineered.

    There was once a Peace Movement. It was associated with the Democratic Party. Perhaps a mistake? Yet no one seems to be complaining now that it lost all interest.

    Who upholds those ideals now? The Left I suppose? But they are then checked by those even further left since Communism will never renounce war.

    There was a Peace Movement before both WW1 & 2. Totally memory holed. That doesn’t fit any narrative. The closest would be America First and Trump 1.0 – but they had much more clarity than we do now. Probably because they were more honest and less programmed.

They have people in Congress who are saying that he is basically right next to treason with different things he is saying. They are doing it to Tulsi and they did this to President Trump and so many others. But it’s ok for them to commit genocide essentially and yet they are also supposed to be moral arbiters. And that’s why I can’t and I won’t. I also personally believe this is their divide and conquer method. They eventually get you to the point where you are like omg they are all a part of it and you tell everyone around you to stay back. And then when you are isolated and separated that is when they come in and devour your soul. But anyhoo, I just wanted to note my hesitations about that but I do agree with you that we have to be really careful because there are definitely efforts underway to distract us and mislead us.

          Youtuber Russell Brand had a great video on this topic about a bio lab in the Ukraine, it showed Senator Rubio getting shocked when the undersecretary said there are bio labs in the Ukraine.

          Interesting questions, and he admits he only asks and wants a discussion on them.

            JK herself said something along the lines of ‘if my entire career had been launched by an author who took me under her wing for years and was the cause of me earning millions, I would never think of turning on her just to be seen virtue signalling. But that’s just me.’ (paraphrasing, but I remember the tweet).

        Tuck gets 10 cool mill a year to spout. I like him. But I think we have to keep our eyes wide open. For example, did you see his show in the beginning of the rus invasion? So he was redirecting our rage away from the nazis at that point. Haven’t watched since so I don’t know what he’s saying now.

    • Paula D March 15, 2022 at 12:32 pm #

      What kind of soulless monster would support the Contras? Maybe Tucker changed his mind because of the atrocities.
      ” We’ve armed them, put uniforms on their backs, boots on their feet, given them camps in Honduras to live in, medical supplies, doctors, training, leadership, direction, as we’ve sent them in to de-stabilize Nicaragua. Under our direction they have systematically been blowing up graineries, saw mills, bridges, government offices, schools, health centers. They ambush trucks so the produce can’t get to market. They raid farms and villages. The farmer has to carry a gun while he tries to plow, if he can plow at all.

      If you want one example of hard proof of the CIA’s involvement in this, and their approach to it, dig up `The Sabotage Manual’, that they were circulating throughout Nicaragua, a comic-book type of a paper, with visual explanations of what you can do to bring a society to a halt, how you can gum up typewriters, what you can pour in a gas tank to burn up engines, what you can stuff in a sewage to stop up the sewage so it won’t work, things you can do to make a society simply cease to function.

      Systematically, the contras have been assassinating religious workers, teachers, health workers, elected officials, government administrators. You remember the assassination manual? that surfaced in 1984. It caused such a stir that President Reagan had to address it himself in the presidential debates with Walter Mondale. They use terror. This is a technique that they’re using to traumatize the society so that it can’t function.

      I don’t mean to abuse you with verbal violence, but you have to understand what your government and its agents are doing. They go into villages, they haul out families. With the children forced to watch they castrate the father, they peel the skin off his face, they put a grenade in his mouth and pull the pin. With the children forced to watch they gang-rape the mother, and slash her breasts off. And sometimes for variety, they make the parents watch while they do these things to the children.

      This is nobody’s propaganda. There have been over 100,000 American witnesses for peace who have gone down there and they have filmed and photographed and witnessed these atrocities immediately after they’ve happened, and documented 13,000 people killed this way, mostly women and children. These are the activities done by these contras. The contras are the people president Reagan calls `freedom fighters’. He says they’re the moral equivalent of our founding fathers. And the whole world gasps at this confession of his family traditions.”

            The Aztecs had special butcher priests who would sometimes skin a body after the heart had been cut out – and then don the skin. Good times!

            What you have to understand Paula, is that the Old Religion is always trying to come back. Mexican drug gangs sometimes skin a face and then put it on a basketball.

            Do I like things like this? No, I don’t like things like this. That’s why I don’t want these people in the United States. But what does our insane regime do? Open the border to them.

      Tucker comes from money and it shows. Naturally he was a dick as a young man. He’s come a long way and preaches America First every night. When he was young, he preached Libertarian Republicanism I believe. He can’t help where he came from or who is father was.

      He’s for us staying home and fighting the good fight HERE. Using our tax dollars HERE. Our army HERE if need be.

    A certain E. Berne was actually a psychiatrist and not a psychologist as Mr. K surmises. His identification of the game of ‘lets you and him fight’ is false as youse Yankees and Johnny Rebs figured that one out long ago much to the amusement of England I’m sure.

    Berne was a patsy working for the alphabet agencies on mind control experiments at a Montreal funny farm. You know the kind; frontal lobotomy, electric shocks and electric kool-aid acid tests. Would you trust this man who as Mr. K so pointedly claimed he was the ‘father parsing conversations’? This work by a mind control purveyor has yielded the numbing rhetoric of politicians everywhere and their errand boys of the media with their nauseating prognostications which somehow passes as journalism.

    Berne as a sequel to his diabolical deeds in Montreal was relocated to Mt Carmel as a usual perk for his superlative service. Unfortunately, he died or shall I say; greased, terminated, quite young at sixty. Who dies at that age by a heart attack in Mt Carmel? Berne had done his duty suppling the alphabets with enough chattel to carry on with manufacturing the brave new world. Berne was cancelled so he would not live to tell who was behind the curtain.

    • Islander March 15, 2022 at 10:36 am #

      Regardless of whom Berne was working for, his book Games People Play was a useful work that described a lot of the psycho games that people *do* play.

      Perhaps this was a result of his other work. Who knows.

      Have you actually read Games People Play?

      Have you lived a life embedded in some sort of community or family? Did NO ONE play any of these games described by Berne? Lucky you!

      For many, Berne’s book provided a shorthand way to start to recognize and analyze some of the BS that manipulative people throw at one, or use to manipulate individuals and groups.

    I would prefer not to drive over the cliff. But I’m not sure what to expect from the clown bus other than chaos and an almost total break with reality. I kinda feel like I’m a hostage on the bus. But I suppose it could be worse. It seems like negotiations may be further underway than what we are hearing. Someone from Fox who had been “on the ground” in Ukraine said the place was leveled and they already lost. What is super scary is the disruption of spring planting in the world’s breadbasket. That and the disruption of fertlizer production which is big there too. In the end that may be a way bigger story than the war or the high gas prices. Some people say that they aren’t happy with the performance of the “vaccines” and so they are escalating to totally collapse the food supply. I would prefer that to be just a conspiracy theory though.

    From the link above on Tucker:

    “One thing you learn when you grow up in a castle and look out across the moat every day at the hungry peasants in the village is you don’t want to stoke envy among the proletariat.” Anti-union Tucker

    One has to be wary of all extremely wealthy elites. Tucker and his people know what buttons to push to pop the ratings. Fortunately for them, the Left keeps providing enough mind-blowing, insane behavior that viewers have an almost compulsive need to see and hear something sane.

    Like so many of his ilk, he’s often a poseur, a crafty chameleon who takes his fair share of delight posing with an Ak-47, knowing full well that words are the only weapons he’ll ever wield, words that are often on target yet unable to stop an ever-advancing enemy.

    Interesting article.

      That weird high pitched laugh. The rich really are different. I’d get along better with Hannity. He seems like he’d be a fun guy to have a beer with. But of course he’s from my group and we both have that same vibe from our past.

      Both men have grown. Hannity’s transcended his lower middle class roots and become part of the Establishment. He uses his ethnic and lower class roots to keep people as moronic as possible.

      Tucker has grown too – beyond the mindset of the current Establishment. So I’d get along better with him at an intellectual level back to an older type of liberalism/conservatism – back to when they made sense.

      I don’t sense any sense of contradiction in Hannity. He is too extraverted for things like that. He doesn’t know he’s a tool so that makes him a very valuable tool.

        Che, handsome Che (no doubt our Communist ladies adored him), got caught fomenting Revolution in Peru. He thought they were going to let him go on TV for an interview so he was combing his hair. They had a brief two minute trial and then took him out and shot him.

        If you nip such things in the bud, there’s no need for Contras and such unpleasantness. Didn’t some of those types go on to become MS-13 in El Salvador?

        Mexico and Central America are very brutal parts of the world. Both sides. All sides! When my sister was about to go on spring break, my State Trooper cousin said, “Stay with the group. Life is very cheap down there”. Very good advice.

        I assume Russia gets it, as does Poland and Hungary. Do conservative Ukrainians have any idea of what Putin will save them from? If they do, I assume they have to keep mum. They might be shot if they spoke out at this point.

        • SoftStarLight March 15, 2022 at 3:18 pm #

          That’s a good question. From various things I’ve read it seems like the Ukrainians are very much factious with different groups going different ways. I think there are many Ukrainians who want to be westernized and more like western Europeans. Which I assume would mean they would be very open to immigration from non European countries. And I see that Ukraine had lots of immigrants and foreign nationals living there. Actually a surprising number. But clearly there is also a sizable portion of the Ukrainians who even if they think Ukraine should be independent are more oriented toward the Russian orbit. So I think it is a recipe for potentially more conflict. But I think Russia is not bogged down the way our media is saying they are. I think they may have had mistakes and glitches in areas but I think this has been planned for a long time and they aren’t going anywhere. Poland and Hungary are very foolish to be anti-Russian imo given the fact that the EU despises them culturally and demographically and will work to change them incessantly.

          • Jarek March 15, 2022 at 4:06 pm #

            A mass slaughter of Poland’s best and brightest. No doubt Paula pretends it never happened.

            And Hungary rebelled and was put down with extreme brutality by the Soviet backed Bella Kuhn regime.

            Putin has never disavowed the Soviet regime so they can’t trust him, at least in their minds. If he had, he might have destabilized the fragile unity that he had attained. Even now it might be a very bad idea for him to do so.

    Well, ladies and germs;

    What I have been dreading is about to occur. The worst possible event that will literally destroy our economy, and quickly.

    https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/saudi-arabia-china-u-s-oil/2022/03/15/id/1061276/

    I honestly consider the lynchpin of our financial existence is based on t he deal that Richard Nixon made with the House of Saud in 1971…in return for our guarantee of Saud hegemony, they would only accept US dollars for their oil. This alone is the reason that the world must accept whored-up US dollars, as they need them for their energy requirements. IF Saudis begin to accept other currencies, the dollar will be shunned like a Lyme tick infested dog.

    The dollar will then float in the FOREX, against other, perhaps stronger currencies, and commodity prices will reflect all the financial outrages the dollar represents.

    This is not tongue in cheek, and I am not joking. If/when this occurs, our lives will change, dramatically.

      But at least we’re on the right side of the Ukraine issue. American are willing to pay 16 dollars a gallon – for Ukraine!

      And get vaccinated – for Ukraine!

      All good people should get a tattoo of the Ukrainian flag on their foreheads – for Ukraine!

      • BackRowHeckler March 15, 2022 at 4:18 pm #

        Yup, can’t afford to keep the house warm because #2 heating oil is $6 per gallon.

        “I stand strong with Ukraine!”

        Independent truckers calling it quits when diesel hits $5.00. They run on razor thin margins as it is, so why bother?

        “I stand strong with Ukraine!”

        Pete Buttpounder says get an electric truck, haters.

      Thank you for posting the link, Elysian. This is a very troubling development, indeed. About the only think I can say with certainty at the moment is I’m thankful I read The Long Emergency 15 years ago, and numerous other books pertaining to environmental economics and the history of energy and fossil fuels. I’m not surprised or confused by anything that is going on right now but it is scary how quickly things are developing.

        KK,
        Yes, it is happening quickly. Paula is correct in that we had a good run, and for a long time. By forcing the rest of the world to need our currency, we, you me and every American, benefitted mightily..

        Richard Milhouse Nixon was, in my estimation, the greatest president, in terms of statesmanship, that held office in my lifetime.
        By a deft, seemingly innocuous deal he made set the stage for our enhanced quality of life, and the benefits continued to this day. We were able to screw the world out of their wealth for worthless paper, and he made them need to do it.

        Remember being in the back seat of your 57 Chevy with little Susie Creamcheese? You can thank Nixon. Did she give you a social disease? No reason to blame Nixon for that…you coulda dated her sister….

          Yes, the petrodollar was ingenious. From my perspective, being in Merica has been an amazing ride these last few decades. I have some childhood memories of visiting my grandparents in a small town that had a lumber mill and some other businesses. A lot like Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show for those who remember that. Everything was right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. The town is a drugged out shithole now.

          It’s sad to see the party coming to an end. The crowd is thinning out, there are just a few puddles left in the punchbowls, the hangover is coming on.

    • Paula D March 15, 2022 at 3:04 pm #

      Well, we had a good run for a long time.
      Nothing lasts forever.

      I’m scared.

      A senior U.S. official told WSJ that the idea of the Saudis selling oil to China in yuan was “highly volatile and aggressive” and “not very likely.”

      Translation: The idea is already in the advanced stages of approval and scares US officials so much that they are forced to deny it altogether, lest people start dumping soon to be worthless US debt and crashing the dollar. We will own nothing, although it remains to be seen if it will make us “happy” or not. Probably not, but no more miserable (well, not much more anyway) than we already are.

      • Paula D March 15, 2022 at 4:09 pm #

        Well, when the grocery shelves are empty I’m guessing we’re going to be more miserable.

            It’s getting stale, Jarek. Might want to shut it.

            But am I wrong?

          • Alzaebo March 18, 2022 at 9:15 pm #

            Yes, please shut it.

      • elysianfield March 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm #

        Dis,
        Consider that Iran, Venezuela, and Libya made the similar noises at various times…what do they have in common? Whatever happened to poor old Muammar?

        We came, We saw…he died! (giggle)

    Ahahahahaha,

    Academic talking head on CNN worried about Historical Monuments being damaged in Kiev, Kharkov, etc. In the first place those monuments, markers and statues were built by the Russians to honor Russian heroes at Poltava in 1709, Imperial troops who engaged Napolean in 1812, made a stand against Austro-German forces in 1914, and the battles of Kiev and Kharkov in 1941, 1943, & 1944.

    In the second place this douche was most likely cheering on BLM mobs a few years ago when they were tearing down Confederate monuments, & Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln and Columbus monuments. Irony is sweet, isn’t it?

    • Paula D March 15, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

      I think the nazis pulled down the Soviet heroes and put up Bandera statues already.
      There were even reports that they graffitied the Motherland statue in Kiev.

    RT

    The world’s third largest oil consumer, India, is considering buying Russian crude and other commodities at discounted prices using domestic currency. This comes as the US is encouraging countries to avoid trading with Russia amid the conflict in Ukraine.

    “Russia is offering oil and other commodities at a heavy discount. We will be happy to take that. We have some issues like tanker insurance cover and oil blends to be resolved. Once we have that we will take the discount offer,” an Indian government official told Reuters.

    Transactions will be carried out in India’s and Russia’s national currencies to evade the US dollar and related sanction policies. According to officials, work to set up a rupee-ruble trade mechanism is already underway.

    Jarek: Cosmic stupidity on the part of the Biden Administration? Of course, but just that? Or demonic prater-human intelligences hiding behind that stupidity? Nothing could have brought America down quicker than this.

    Maybe Davos did slate China to be the one to unify the Globe after all, with Russia as a strong right hand to be gradually corrupted and brought more fully into the fold by and by.

    • SoftStarLight March 15, 2022 at 3:33 pm #

      Yes, I think you are on to something for sure. In a way I suspect that the true satanic globalists hate China and Russia too as they are currently comprised. That is because they are much more nation state like than the already conquered WEF countries. But they will work on that later and in the meantime they are tools that can be used to take out what remains of the nations states they have already destroyed?

    Missiles that shoot little missiles as decoys. So much for Israel’s “Iron Sky” or other such things.

    Putin has unleashed the Chechens against the Azovs in Mariupol. Wet work!

    Ukrainian refugees good. African refugees bad. One belongs in Europe and the other doesn’t and thus shouldn’t be trying to flee from Ukraine into Poland to begin with. Good Poles know this. This is why Eastern Europe may have a future but the West does not.

    Believe it or not, Black Africans insist on going into poverty stricken India as well. Why? They are insulted and beaten there every where they go. But leave? Never! Imagine how bad Black Africa must be….

      From the article:

      “The devices are similar to Cold War decoys called “penetration aids,” the intelligence official said.”
