Shadows Within Shadows

The regime behind “Joe Biden” appears to relish the prospect of dragging out this crisis as long as possible, despite the fact that we have about zero national interest in the fate of Ukraine, except perhaps for our fears about the dark secrets that reside there….

Amid an all-out campaign of contrived World War Three hysteria, our country aims to send about $14-billion in aid to Ukraine post-haste, including more javelin anti-tank missiles and weapons described as “kamikaze drones,” posing some thorny questions for curious observers.

How do we propose to get these things into Ukraine? Fly the stuff in on USAF C-17 Globemaster transport planes? To what airfield, exactly? And with what assurance that they can make delivery without encountering, shall we say, induced mechanical failure before landing? Drive the weapons across the border from Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, or Moldova? Do you not suppose that Russia has satellite surveillance of the limited number of road crossings along that frontier, and will be watching for truck convoys?

More likely, that dollar number and the weaponry talk are fantasies intended to propitiate the roughly thirty percent of Americans who, pollsters report, are avid for an apocalyptic nuclear showdown with Russia. Thirty percent, by the way, is the estimate by psychologists of any given population susceptible to mass formation psychosis — the transfiguration of anxiety-and-anomie-driven persons from something like harmless grasshoppers into ravaging human locusts.

That group derangement phenomenon has been managed artfully by America’s Deep State in recent years starting with the Russia Collusion hoax against the alleged monsterdom of Mr. Trump, then shifted to the frenzy around Covid-19 virus, with all its sickening rituals of obedience and submission, and now segued seamlessly to the melodrama of Vladimir Putin cast as King Kong manhandling Fay Wray as personified by Ukraine.

Readers assure me that Russia is “getting its ass kicked” in that sore-beset, yawning expanse of wheat and mud that has been, one way or another, a domain of Russia longer than the USA has been a nation — except the past thirty-odd years when it has been a playground for homegrown oligarch-looters, US State Department and CIA gamesters, and grift-seeking rogues such as Mr. R. Hunter Biden and the relatives of John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi.

America’s gift of javelin missiles by former president Trump has reportedly taken a heavy toll on Russian tanks and helicopters, confounding their advance. That is hardly the whole story. The Russians have surrounded the hardiest units of Ukraine’s army in the contested Donbass region. These include the alleged neo-Nazi Azov brigades dug-in around Luhansk and Donetsk for eight years, and busy all that time shelling the Russian-speaking population there with American-supplied munitions. Those Azov brigades now face the choice of surrender or annihilation. They have no contact with whatever remains of the Ukrainian military command.

The regime behind “Joe Biden” appears to relish the prospect of dragging out this crisis as long as possible, despite the fact that we have about zero national interest in the fate of Ukraine, except perhaps for our fears about the dark secrets that reside there — especially the full story behind those recently discovered Pentagon-run bio-labs, stuffed with dangerous disease-based science projects. Looks at least suspicious, a little bit, to the casual observer. What did we have in mind with all that? Is it not bad enough that the human race shares the planet with many opportunistic micro-organisms that like to periodically kill off multitudes? Is it a good idea to enhance them, to play lab games with them? And why there, close to Russia’s border? And why so many labs?

Western Civ has suffered the consequences of that Frankenstein-style science for two-plus years. And is it a coincidence that “Joe Biden” provoked Russia to invade Ukraine just as the Covid-19 crisis was veering toward the discovery that the touted vaccines are found to disable and kill off large numbers of people in the prime of their lives? The terrible news of all that can’t be squelched despite the mainstream media’s calculated indifference to it. Between an engineered die-off and a wrecked economy, the “Joe Biden” government and its Deep State enablers don’t have a whole lot to brag about.

Only Wednesday at his podium, the “president” laid down a string of bizarre hypotheticals saying, “everybody knows somebody” subject to blackmail. That may have been an overstatement about Americans’ general state of moral relations. But then, whaddaya know? Twenty-four hours later, The New York Times — of all parties — very conspicuously walks back its two-year-old claim that the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop, stuffed with incriminating memos and emails about the Biden family’s global bribery and racketeering operations, was a Russian ploy to make then-candidate “Joe Biden” look bad.

Do they mean to say no such Russian ploy happened? And that the fifty former-and-current US intel officers who signed a letter to that effect were lying? Is damaging info busting to come to the public’s attention now?  Were both “Joe Biden” and The Times trying to get ahead of a story? And if, say, Hunter Biden happens to face some federal charges, will they somehow implicate his dad? Or perhaps some other party, Russia or maybe China, has possession of a Hunter Biden laptop — there were more than a few of them loose in the world — and may be on the verge of releasing its contents. Maybe wagging the tail of that Ukrainian dog wasn’t such a bright idea after all.

    Mr. Kunstlers’ writings and observations of the present state and the likely outcomes within the future state are prescient.

    The law of self-organized criticality prevails across 48 “percolating variables” that have exceeded critical point.

    GODSPEED!

    • got___truth March 18, 2022 at 9:55 am #

      These are the U.S. “percolating variables” AT or EXCEEDED critical point, under the law of self-organized criticality:
      Borders – Unsecured
      Civil Unrest
      Consumer – Credit
      Crime – Urban

      Education
      Electric Grid-Eastern
      Electric Grid-Texas
      Electric Grid-Western

      We remain at DEFCON-1, as when variables exceed critical point, collapse is the result, within that realm.
      The rolling waves of collapse are underway, across multiple realms, and not being disclosed by those employed in the service of public health and safety.

          If the electric grid were removed we could all plan on returning to a life with the technological level of the mid-1800s.

          If all petrochemicals were removed, we’d find ourselves in living conditions similar to the late 1700s.

            TCL,
            Don’t sugar-coat the equation…if we lost just the electrical grid, the expected die off in three months would be…90%.

            Lack of food, clean water, sanitation, and, of course ubiquitous ferals.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 18, 2022 at 2:07 pm #

            The electric grid came first, and made petrochemicals possible.

            Take it out permanently, and the surviving 20% of the population will live like mid-1800s

            Has anyone considered how that will play out? What happens when electricity goes AWOL for a day or a week?

            Well, here in America, in many cities, all hell breaks loose.

            Some people in some areas will continue to have power. Will that be enough to support the rest (in the form of public assistance)?

            How will the have-nots react?

            It seems logical to assume that in a world with no electricity, and no fuel oil, a world powered by humans and horses and oxen, the world’s carrying capacity will shrink, and much of the population will die of hunger or illness. But the random element is how will people react as this is happening?

            If the have-nots get violent and destroy the little that is left, then it could be lights out for mankind–if the power grid and oil industries totally vanished.

            Third Coast:

            Air burst EMP attack. Delivered in a six strike grid covering both coasts and everything in between.

            Delivered by hypersonic glide missiles completely undetected as was the recent global demonstration flight by the Chinese.

            Every car and truck manufactured in the last 20 years disabled.

            Entire switching and control system for the national electrical grid permanently disabled.

            Natural gas pipeline pumping stations permanently disabled.

            Immediate and complete paralysis of the food delivery system.

            90% of the US population dead within 30 days with little radiation impact.

            This exact scenario is within the technical capabilities of at least three countries.

        Cowbell

        Mittens is that former Republican Party presidential candidate from Utah. For those who bothered to look as his Party chose him as their standard bearer, the roots of his fortune were sunk in the blood of the Central American death squad wars. As an ambitious young officer of Bain Capital, he proposed to Bill Bain that they found a private equity company designed to use borrowed capital to take over companies in need of expansion funding, bleed them dry, and leave the dead husks blowing in the wind with all the money transferred to the private equity ” managers” . Bain said, “have at it Boy, just don’t fuck with my existing stockholders.”

        After struggling to find equity partners, Mitt Romney (AKA Mittens) found willing investors among a group of Salvadorian oligarchs who were the prime funders of the right wing death squads operating alongside their CIA advisors in their war torn country. That same group of oligarchs remain the largest block of stockholders in Romney’s private equity wealth extraction scheme to this day.

        With a resume like that Mittens was eminently qualified to become President of the USA. It’s hard to understand how he failed.

          Mr K deserves all the (good) comments, but I understand your concern.
          Everyone lives in their own level of denial. Joseph Campbell said that each of us must enter the forest Alone, and at the point of our own choosing, in the search for our true selves.
          Everyone here will have their own personal moment of realization. My guess is that the thing that will trigger this shift will be Hunger.

    Well, I read somewhere that a brave wounded Ukrainian pilot sank a Russian aircraft carrier by diving WWII era Sturmovic plane down the smokestack of the nuclear-powered ship. His last words over the radio were –

    “F**K You Russia! Ukraine Forever! I die that the Ukraine may live! Oh if only NATO would establish a no-fly zone! Tell Maria I love her! Rosebud! Rosebud!”

    I believe it! I really do! 🙂

      As the guards stopped him at the bottom of the steps for identification formality he uttered his piercing scream: “Heil Hitler!”[5] The shriek sent a shiver down my back… As he reached the platform, Streicher cried out, “Now it goes to God.” He was pushed the last two steps to the mortal spot beneath the hangman’s rope. The rope was being held back against a wooden rail by the hangman. Streicher was swung suddenly to face the witnesses and glared at them. Suddenly he screamed, “Purim Fest 1946.”…

      The American officer standing at the scaffold said, “Ask the man if he has any last words.” When the interpreter had translated, Streicher shouted, “The Bolsheviks will hang you one day.” When the black hood was raised over his head, Streicher’s muffled voice could be heard to say, “Adele, my dear wife.” At that instant the trap opened with a loud bang. He went down kicking.”[6]

    Be very wary of all these ex-Generals & spooks on State Media that are “analyzing” the ground war there in Ukraine. This war has hardly been going on for 3 weeks. We don’t know the Russian command’s endgame here. We know their demands, but we don’t know how far west the Russian military is going to be committed. It appears the Russians are focusing on taking eastern Ukraine. However, but we don’t know for certain. Same goes for the actual fighting. You can youtube Ukrainian sources to watch short videos of the UNA (Ukrainian National Army) engaged with Russian forces. But they are largely out of context, and it is difficult to ascertain how much is real vs. how much has been staged, or is propaganda.

    Same goes about conjecture on Putin’s state of mind. The windbags of State Media have had “reporting” that Putin is dying of cancer, or he is “crazy” or he is “desperate”, or any number of things.

    It’s all nonsense created for domestic consumption.

    • Penelope Dreadful March 18, 2022 at 10:17 am #

      It reminds me of way back when, when the OSS (later to be the CIA) wrote a psychological analysis of Hitler, and the report said that Hitler probably ate poop. Yeah. I watched most of Ukraine on Fire, on Rumble, and that explains a lot of the situation.

          And you can follow the military activity on the ground at The Saker blog, or Moon of Alabama. At least at the Saker you can find out what the Russians are actually saying. You can also find an interesting discussion of how the endgame in UKr might play out.

      Remember, propaganda 101: Always accuse your enemy of the very things that you, yourself are guilty of. State of mind? No contest. The western elites and their political tools are all completely out of their minds right now. Russia has called their bluff and is playing the old-fashioned military card, albeit effectively, something the US has never done and is totally incapable of doing now. The only cards they have are nuclear and biological, cards Russia can play as well, and no doubt much more effectively to boot. And while Ukraine is a decidedly a casual war for DC, its an existential one for Russia fought on their home grounds. The few actual warriors remaining in the MIC know that constitutes an overwhelming advantage. Let’s just hope they’re getting through to the knot-heads calling the shots, but it doesn’t appear that that’s the case right now.

      • PeteAtomic March 18, 2022 at 10:38 am #

        Agreed.

        The Russian way of war is completely different from the US or NATO one.

        To some extent, all modern militaries today are the children of Heinz Guderian, and other German Panzer thinkers from the last war.

        The Russians developed their own take of the ‘cauldron battle’ or ‘kesselschlacht’ and ‘war of movement’ ‘bewegungskrieg’, auf Deutsch, that the German tank theorists had used to defeat France, and get so far into Russia in WWII.

        The Soviets called it ‘Deep Battle’. We may be seeing some of that play out here. But, I don’t know. Things are too murky to see clearly. Western State Media isn’t reporting how ground fighting is going. So, it’s really difficult to try to ascertain what the truth is.

      • zekesdad March 18, 2022 at 11:13 am #

        An existential war for Russia? What are you talking about? Russia isn’t facing something like Operation Barbarossa in 1941. Russia’s a nuclear power. NO ONE is or was threatening Russia. Putin, however may be facing such a crisis if things go badly for Russia. A cornered ego-maniac in control of nuclear weapons is very scary.

            You’re confused about who’s the aggressor and who’s the defender. NATO was set up to defend Europe against Russian (ie. Soviet) aggression. How many countries has it occupied? I can think of quite a few the Russians did and now they want them back. Why do you think Poland eagerly signed up and now Sweden and Finland are considering it?

          Russia’s fight is our fight.

          China is NOT NEUTRAL. They will continue their “let’s you and him fight,” strategy until the Russians and the Americans are too tired to fight back.

          China, with the captured American deep state in their pocket, and the Biden crime family running interference will simply be the only power left standing at the end.

            Well said Alfred.

            Planned or not, Russia is fighting the NWO.

            I think they will win this battle–they must. But in the long run, they must contend with the far more populous, and digitally sophisticated, Chinese. Or the Chinese and the West.

            I believe this is why they tried to open to the West. I also speculate that Putin realized, at some point, the West would never accept Russia as European, and instead wanted to return to 1998, so while he had befriended (it seems) superficially many of the elites, he decided at some point they were toxic and planned what is now transpiring.

            I’m rootin’ for Putin’…and everyone here should be as well.

            Everyone here should point out to people in “the world” how one-sided the reporting is. How the Ukraine is NOT a democracy. How the US coup overthrew the elected government. How before the coup, and since, this is one corrupt country. How the Biden family got millions of dollars from this crooked regime, and how other prominent families get money. How, with the US implicit support, these sons of Nazis were shelling and killing Russians.

            Most people in “the world” can grasp those things.

        Well, I disagree with the idea that this is a “casual” war for the USA and that the USA has no “interests” in Ukraine. That is kind of like saying that the USA has no interest in Hawaii, or the Philippines, or Panama, or any number of other small, faraway spots that the USA deems vital to its security.

        This is ultimately a resource war.
        Russia has the resources that the West so obviously needs.
        The West, and NATO, greedily contemplate getting control over Russia’s resources. The favored plan is to foment internal political chaos within Russia. (American “leaders” seem to be unaware that political and civil chaos are probbably more likely in the USA than in Russia.) But they would love it if Russia could be goaded into some action that would give the West the pretext needed to nuke Russia. The fact that our own politicians are also compromised is the cherry on the cake.

        Look at a map. Basically, eastern Europe is an isthmus separating the Baltic from the Black Sea. Basically, Ukraine is plain and steppe. Virtually no mountains. Ukraine is the obvious invasion route into Russia.

        How can our esteemed host miss these central points of resources and geography?

        Of course Russia must be demonized to the max to justify the ultimate grab of her land and resources.

        NATO is clearly the party pursuing a war of aggression against Russia.
        Russia’s incursion is clearly a defensive war for Russia—defending its people and ultimately its borders and resources.

        Many people suspect that Russia has bombshell intel of various sorts. I bet they also have The Laptop, or a copy of its hard drive. Just one more reason to try to eliminate Putin and the Russia leadership and Russia as a state.

        Quite apart from all of the above, per Michael Hudson this is really a war by the USA against Europe. To take down esp. Germany’s industry and the EU’s economic capacity—turn the EU into a market for the USA.

        And then there is the Armstrong argument, which is that Putin has decided to put a wrench in the Great Reset once and for all. This would put him on the same side as the USA’s regional banksters, per Armstrong.

        When did Americans become so venal?

        • Disaffected March 18, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

          It’s casual because it wasn’t life and death necessary. Americans don’t believe it, but resources and anything else can be procured through cooperative and/or diplomatic measures as well, but DC doesn’t do those things anymore. Hubris. This was about nothing more than poking a stick in the Bear’s eye, in the hopes of extending DC globalist hegemony, which they rightly see is slipping away. Wrong strategy, wrong outcome, from their POV at least. Win/win for the rest of us, even the Ukrainians once all this settles down, which it will soon enough. Wish I could say the same for Europe, GB, and the US over the longer run. Our fireworks are just getting started, as we’ve still got our own homegrown parasites to deal with.

            Yes, a mad gambit in which we’ve risked losing the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

            But Islander’s point is good too: Maybe we do need Russia’s resources for all this to continue long term. Maybe they are correct – from their own pov at least. Is the World going to collapse or is it going to “power down”. And who stays on top, in either scenario?

          • Islander March 18, 2022 at 3:46 pm #

            “But Islander’s point is good too: Maybe we do need Russia’s resources for all this to continue long term. ”

            Yes, they are thinking long-term—have been doing so since the end of WW2.

            Since before the end of WW2.

            But in the current iteration, since the end of WW2. A lot of effort has been invested in the Ukraine, most of it covert. Remember the Orange Revolution, in 2004? That has Western Deep State fingerprints all over it.

            The coming resource crunch has been obvious since at least the late seventies/early eighties.

            See Diana Johnstone, “For Washington, War Never Ends.”
            Specifically, WW2 never ended.
            This is an absolutely fabulous overview and summary of how we got where we are; many commenter say the same: The best historical overview and analysis they have seen yet.
            Please do take the time to read it. I honestly don’t think you can grasp the reality of what is going on in the Ukraine if you don’t “get” this background. My Moscow colleague, a highly qualified professional, agrees that this is a great essay. The comments at Consortium News are also worth reading.

            Not everyone agrees with you, and I don’t mean the kind of people who comment at CFN.

            Geting UKR into Nato was considered absolutely indispensable for the long game of “taming” Russia.

            Do you think Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Georgia are also “casual” locales for US covert agitating, because the are small eastern European countries?

          • Disaffected March 18, 2022 at 4:59 pm #

            I agree with you as far as the POV at the top. Yes, they do see it all winding down and slipping away, and they know Russia is the key to extending their empire at least a little while longer. No disagreement there at all. I’m just saying their view is distorted by their own ambition and greed. Always has been since the end of WWII at least. They don’t desire to just survive, which is the most basic motivator of all. They desire to flourish and continue to rule and subjugate at the expense of everyone else, including their own people. That’s simply not an existential motivation, especially to the minions who will have to do the fighting and dying on their behalf, most of whom are likely justifiably scared shitless about now. For Russia on the other hand, this is most definitely an existential war, as their continued existence as a nation and as a people is on the line here, a view shared from the top all the way to the bottom of the social hierarchy. One needs look no further than the US’s reluctance to get directly involved militarily to see the difference. It couldn’t be greater.

          Beside the ability to make mischief, weaken Russia, enrich the top tier US grifters (Bidens, Clintons, Pelosi, Romney, etc) and the military industrial complex, this Ukraine gig has

          crowded out the little news that might have seeped through about COVID mRNA cardiovascular issues and deaths

          crowded out the news that (at least Fox would have carried) of the findings of the Special Counsel John Durham about the 2016 Pres Campaign

          crowded out news (at least on Fox) about the porous US border

          not only crowded out inflation, but it’s now being blamed on Putin

          shortage of oil will be used to push a green agenda, which is the modern US equivalent of the USSR/Stalin’s collective farms

          So, the US will do all it can to prolong the misery in Ukraine, instead of privately acknowledging that the US government “may have overdone it” (diplomatic speak for “yes, we were wrong”), and telling Zelensky to accept the Russian terms (“Volodymyr, buddy, sometime in Las Vegas you put all your chips on your cards and….you lose it all. We went for gold, and we lost it all, so you need to agree ASAP to give the Russians everything they want, cuz the longer it goes, the more they will want).

            Right now, the power is in the hands of the WEF Globalist Billionaire Cartel. In their employ they have the Chinese State Apparatus and the American State Apparatus. Ideology be damned this is about power and control. Money Talks. Shit, it’s the only one talking.

            Right now, THEY KNOW, if power were to shift to ordinary people through their own collective efforts, WE WOULD KILL THEM FOR WHAT THEY DID.

            Right now THEY BELIEVE that there should be 7.5 billion fewer people on the planet.

            Right now THEY KNOW, if they get you to stay in your box you can be managed like any other resource. You can be tagged and tracked and decommissioned, PROFITABLY.

            Right now, THE RUSSIANS, are the only people on the planet fighting back. The Russian’s motives to invade Ukraine were plainly self-evident BEFORE we learned (if true) that there were weapons-grade-bio-labs there, and genetic studies of the folks what live there going on, and a bit about the birds… really?

            Right now, MOST AMERICANS, see THE RUSSIANS through the lens of the cold-war – sixties style. What they need to see is the Russians who threw those communist bastards out. But Americans are punch drunk over the last two decades of run-amok WOKE political CRIME SYNDICATE.

            Right now, YOU need to disabuse yourself of the notion that there are Governments and Administrations formed of altruistic citizens beholden to a set of agreed upon principles.

            NO. We live in a world of State Apparatus’ that are no more noble than a DRUG CARTEL with exactly the same modus operandi.

      Keeping in mind that all information in wartime is propaganda, how should we respond to the “Russian military operations are stalled, running out of transport, fuel, losing control of the air war to the valiant Resistance —– that the US “free press” sells?

      Look at a map! Over the past few weeks that the Russian army has been “stalled” the entire Ukrainian coast has fallen under Russian control, leaving only two cities and a small patch of land which will not last two weeks. Ukraine will become a land-locked, fragmented spring mud puddle with it’s capital city surrounded.

      The West doesn’t seem to understand what Putin means by de-nazification. My take is that he means extermination of the Azov Battalion and all who self-identify as Nazis. That can only take place by surrender, trial, and firing squad, or by isolating them in enclaves, allowing as many civilians and deserters to escape as possible, and then then using overwhelming firepower to cleanse the remainder. Brutal, but is there another means to cleanse the country of the wolves fed by decades of political hatred, CIA support, and billions of US dollars? One thing is certain— when Putin says that one of his major goals is de-nazification he is not bluffing like when the US/NATO draws a line in the sand.

      What are we to make of the reports filtering out of Kiev (Russian propaganda?) that daily life proceeds nearly normally, cars driving around, electricity on, sewer and water systems intact? Doesn’t look like a city under siege! More like a city being kept intact awaiting its new rulers who want a civilian populace to accept it and get along with their lives.

    “Do they mean to say no such Russian ploy happened? And that the fifty former-and-current US intel officers who signed a letter to that effect were lying?”

    Technically, that is not what the 50 Intel officers said They only said that the whole affair had the earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign. That way, you get the smear, but you still have plausible deniability. Which shows me that the NYT knew already that LaptopGate was true and would eventually the big poo poo log would float to the top of sludge. Because they never actually said that it disinfo – they just implied it.

    Those who control “The West” only want to use “The West” to open up Russia to the same looting, cultural destruction, and vassal state status that exists in certain parts of North America (US and Canada) and Europe.

    Countries, not nations, purporting to be free, open, democratic and PEACEFUL.
    They cover up their massive suppression of freedoms by stoking and amplifying race and gender issues.
    See! We are open!!
    We (barely if not nominally) support trans and blacks (every election cycle) and immigrants!

    For the last 2 decades, the US has been used as a blunt tool to repave for the “new world order”.
    The “Reset”
    The New American Century.

    $14 billion of American, “western”, wealth used for their Russian agenda.
    You are living in a puppet state.
    Specifically, the sock-puppet blessed with a large club in its mouth.
    And they will use this club, and you will cheer on this club.
    Ignorantly as always.
    And you will cheer on when they turn their agenda to China.

    The neocons never left. They did not disappear after Bush.
    It is why they so vociferously opposed Trump.
    Never Trump.
    Never America First.
    Never peace.
    America was to be used for their imperialistic agenda.
    And it is, but now with the Democrats.

    America is a tool for them. Their allegiances are not to the United States nor its people.

    This “crisis” has nothing to do with Ukraine beyond extension of the looting and sovereignty eroding taking place.
    The censored looting and censored laptops and censored payoffs and bribes.

    Soros, the eternal hobgoblin “scapegoat” said it himself:

    The US Taxpayer-funded weapons donations made to the same faction of mostly Nazis installed in 2014 by the US government to run the place on behalf of a laundry list of characters (dangerous stuff to be sure) are ‘reported’ by the script-readers as being ‘sent with more on the way’.

    (Ever notice how ‘laundry’,seems to show up a lot: launderer, money-laundering, The French Laundry… )

    I have to wonder how these shipments are making it through the mostly encircled (by the Russian military) areas of conflict in this territory called Ukraine. The place has somewhat of an identity crisis going back over at least the past couple of centuries.

    So I’m to believe when the ‘Weapons Shipments for Nazi Freedom Fighters’ show up, the Russian military just waives them through?

    I’ll figure the kickbacks to the campaign funds and ‘charitable foundations’ of the laundry-listed characters have already been made.

    What I’m concerned about is who accepted physical delivery and where it occurred.

    Things like MANPADS are serious items.

    Are they arriving into the waiting hands of fanatically unhinged individuals and groups, the political class of world destabilizers, and the free-roaming guns-for-hire around the planet?

    Have some or all of these “hardware items” been divided up by this collage of groups in preparation for false flag events, destabilization of legitimate governments by US 3-letter agencies and maybe some of the folks at “the MIC”, the entity first warned about by D. D. Eisenhower?

    It will be interesting, not necessarily fun, to watch where they start making appearances.

    Could they start showing up here in the US, routed across the Southern Border?

    • cowbell81 March 18, 2022 at 12:12 pm #

      Zelensky will likely corral all of these weapons into a central holding facility, and from there hand them out to all Ukkie civilians that make a request for something, men, women, and children alike, much like he did with the semiautomatics and other guns at the beginning of the offensive. It will be a literal free for all.

      If only the US government took this good of care towards us, we would be able to ultimately turn the weapons against the beasts that operate the federal system. This certainly explains why the feds are so dead set on gun control laws. We the masses are the modern day equivalent of the Jim Crow era Blacks, being suppressed and denied the guns that we need to wage the good fight against tyranny.

      • Not_GeorgeT March 18, 2022 at 6:04 pm #

        Thor

        I’m not sure I’m following your comment.

        Mine was if these items get shipped, the territory called Ukraine is likely one of the last places they’ll end up. Shipped could include moving items out of storage.

        I was going under the option the items either exist or will exist, and get moved around with a bunch of buyers in queue.

        In this option moving some items, whatever and wherever they might be, into the US using the porous Southern Border is worth considering.

        As Paula D seems to be noting, another option is they are a ledger entry with the funds being the only item moved around. This is a valid option also worth considering.

        I didn’t mention diplomatic pouches, C5 transports or any of the Bidens by name.

        I did mention the overthrow of the legitimate government of Ukraine in 2014 by the US. This newsworthy item apparently went down the memory hole, at least for most of what passes as media in the US.

        • Not_GeorgeT March 18, 2022 at 6:16 pm #

          Addendum

          Another option is the items exist or will soon exist within the US. With this option, they become ledger entries as inventory items. Inventory items can disappear.

          “Falling off some truck” as the saying goes.

          People and drugs are moved around within the US almost with impunity. Adding a few more items to the list is not, in my opinion, a far stretch. It’s a dangerous situation.

          • Not_GeorgeT March 19, 2022 at 5:17 am #

            Thor,

            So, having read a post you put up further along, yup, redefining a C5 to be a diplomatic pouch should work and the Big Guy still gets his cut.

            Just like redefining pandemic, vaccine and all the other stuff.

            I’m sure the Russian military and the FSB will go along with it. They must watch American tv to get the story straight.

    The “denazification” of Ukraine is a real thing. There is a genuine Nazi element, as Jim cogently points out in the Azov organization, that have been the Ukrainian military’s hard line element fighting in the Donbass against Russian forces.

    Most Americans are ignorant of the role Ukraine had in WWII. The Germans found millions of willing anti-communist and anti-Jewish executioners & German Army volunteers in Ukraine. The Holodomor genocide had a very real impact on Ukrainian hatred of Stalin & communism in general in the 1920s and 1930s. Ukraine also had been pro-White Army during the Civil War. There was also a strong Ukrainian secessionist movement that survived for a short while after WWII in people like Bandera, and the UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army).

    So, skipping ahead to the end of Soviet times, and the nationalist forces in Ukraine, including Nazi ones, have resurfaced. They were always just bubbling under the surface. So naturally the inheritors of anti-Russian, Ukrainian nationalists from the 14th Waffen SS Division “Galicia” are the Azov Brigades of today.

    • Jarek March 18, 2022 at 2:11 pm #

      Ok, if they’re real Nazis, why are they working for you people, people like Zelensky?

      • Socrates-Detroit March 18, 2022 at 5:34 pm #

        Zelensky is a puppet. He and the Azov Brigade/neo Nazis work for others. And if Zelensky doesn’t do as he’s told… well, he probably has much to worry about, as do his loved ones. I’m sure he is aware of all this, and will do whatever he is told, even if it adds to the death count and destruction of “his people” and “his country”.

        Millions died during Stalin’s famines, including millions of Russians.

        The USSR is associated with Russia. “Soviet Russia”

        So, to some extent, it’s understandable Ukranians would feel “those murderous thug Communists/Russian”. The term Communist and Russian would be interchangeable.

        I’ve read that “the people of the USSR hailed the Germans as liberators in the beginning, then discovered they were as bad or worse”…

        If I was a starving Ukranian, and the enforcers of collective farms were Russian troops (which would make sense) in 1930, I would not think “damn Communists, they are starving us AND their own, the Russians”. No, I would think “damn Russians”. And I suspect that the some of the enforcers of collectivization in the Russian SSR (Soviet Socialist Republic) may have been… Ukranian. It’s just logical, as logical as sending Japanese-Americans to fight WW2 in Italy, and steering Irish and Germans to fight in the Pacific against Japan.

        I think a more precise wording would be that “non-Russians in the western USSR treated the Germans as liberators early on…..”

        During WWII, to some extent, Rumanians, Hungarians, Bulgarians, and (I think early-on) Ukranians supported the Germans for any of a number of reasons. Unlike the Greeks and the Serbs, I’m not aware of any resistance to the German occupiers in these lands. They may even have been allies… But I digress…

        So, the Ukranians were relatively easy marks for the Germans and the Nazis. And apparently, the contamination of Nazism stayed with them, and now the Americans have been using them to foment trouble.

        The Russians aim to put an end to that. Hopefully they will succeed.

        All this talk of giving Ukraine Stingers and Javelin missiles… it will cause higher losses to Russia, but not change the outcome. This is a big deal for Russia, next door to them. For the US, it’s a game.

        Some of these small but deadly weapons will be used by Ukranians, as intended. Some will be captures by Russians. Some will be destroyed by Russians.

        But some will be “unaccounted for”. And some extremist or nut case will take down a commercial jet liner. If the news does not cover it up and claim “engine fire” or some such thing, what will that do to the airline industry? Or what happens when some one takes out a power station or police station in Krakow or Bratislava or Charlotte? Has anyone thought of that?

        I believe the Azov Battalion and other neoNazis, and possibly more “moderate” Ukranian troops are preventing Ukranian non-combatants from leaving the cities on the “safe routes” and shooting them, not Russians.

        I’ve seen an account of a women whose “mercenary” American husband went to Ukraine to fight, changed his mind and.. the Ukranians won’t let him leave. I guess it’s not like paint ball in a real war with real bullets and real bombs…

          Well, Lara Logan mentioned Western Ukraine as the epicenter of WW2 era Nazism. The epicenter for the Azovs is Eastern Ukraine and apparently most of them are ethnic Russians.

          Could it just be thuggery on steroids, with Zelensky’s puppet master hiring the worse element in the nation and allowing them to run riot while honoring them? What thug could resist?

          The Nazi stuff? Tough guy regalia like the Hell’s Angels wear. Or the skinheads – most of whom would not be acceptable to real Nazis.

        No “crickets.”

        Yoiu have not been paying attention.

        First, the collaboration is a fact, documented by numerous videos. Even Jimmy Dore is on top of this.

        Second, this political collaboration has also been explained by many. Just because Zelensky is Jewish doesn’t mean squat. Politics makes strange bedfellows.

        Or, to put it another way, Nazis will work with anyone to helps further their agenda; conversely, and so will Jews. Put another way, being Jewish is not the only relevant descriptor in this complex political situation.

        However, it is true that Jewishness is kind of a third rail that prevents a lot of intelligent people from holding an intelligent conversation as to what is really going on behind the scenes. “Jewish” isn’t the only term in the equation.

        Igor Kolomoisky is a Jewish oligarch who is widely believed to have financed and paid for the Maidan uprising (bringing in and paying snipers, for example), which brought a bunch of right-wing neoNazis to power.

          The guy in the video said that they may have seized control now because their lives depend on stopping Russia. Maybe in some areas I suppose. But I don’t think any one is going to be negotiating with them. The Puppet and his Puppeteers are the ones in charge. The “nazis” are the biggest black faced dupes in recent history. They smeared it on their own faces. It’s a minstrel show to avoid dealing with what people can’t deal with: the Tribe is behind this.

    In the face of all the idiocracy, political mendacity and idiocy going on in the US corporation, the most fearsome thing is that the term ‘traitor’ is starting to be applied (sometimes by intelligent and educated people who should know better) to people who point out that Russia is trying to prevent further genocide of its people in the Donbas region, well know fact in the rest of the world.

    FYI: As an aside: I know about a half dozen people from residency and fellowship training who were from ‘Russia’ (in an exchange program). Four of them were from ‘ukraine,’ but called themselves ‘Russian.’ All have since become USCorp citizens. To a person, they now tell me, privately, that ukraine has been taken over by US assistance and Nazis, who are hostile to native Russian speakers, have been put into power. Hope they don’t get deported for being ‘traitors’ to the USSA.

  29. Starlost March 18, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

    Kunstler writes well, but he doesn’t always think well. The essays are typically festooned with unargued-for assumptions or conclusions that require argument if they are to be persuasive and, sometimes, even to be intelligible. For example, we have the uncritical use of the jabberwocky term “mass formation psychosis” to designate the mental states of persons who uncritically follow authority figures or the group fad du jour and/or substantively disagree on such questions as whether Russia should have invaded Ukraine, whether the assault should be resisted by anyone other than the persons in Ukraine being mowed down, and whether the interests of the U.S. are or not affected by an attempted reconstituting of the Soviet Union. But no group has any psychology apart from the psychologies of the individuals that constitute the group. Some persons are generally conformist and dependent. Others are generally independent and think for themselves. Others are independent in some aspects of their lives, dependent in other aspects. Individuals can be influenced by others in many ways, appropriately or inappropriately. But in light of their current circumstances, limits, and knowledge, they make their own ultimate choices themselves. No “mass formation psychosis” required. So is “mass formation psychosis” just a meaningless metaphor intended to loosely disparage, a concept to be taken literally and able to be explained and defended in detail, or what?

    • Paula D March 18, 2022 at 1:50 pm #

      Sure, and people just spontaneously started wearing blue and gold and screaming about “persons being mowed down in Ukraine” all by themselves, after carefully considering all available information and coming to a reasoned conclusion. It’s just a coincidence that they all came to the same conclusion, coincidentally the same conclusion being pushed by their rulers.

        We haven’t heard much from General Milley; could be he’s still on the mission of identifying instances of White Rage in the US Armed Forces, as well as the parallel project of identifying and rooting out ‘White Supremacists’, a daunting endeavor. I wonder how many White Supremacists he’s found so far? I read a few soldiers were caught with a Confederate flag tattoo: they had to go.

        Now, on the cusp of a major war, Milley has the task of instilling a sense of patriotism in the troops — after 2 years of telling them what a lousy, racist, homophobic, hateful country they live in. He has his work cut out for him. I wonder if the Tranny Battalion is ready yet?

      “But no group has any psychology apart from the psychologies of the individuals that constitute the group.”

      I have no psychological qualifications whatsoever. However, something that has stayed with me over the years is what I recall from a chapter in one of M. Scott Peck’s books about a report on the My Lai massacre that he was asked to submit to the Pentagon. His conclusion was that it was a result of group psychology – individuals surrendering their moral conscience and sense of personal responsibility to the momentary fanaticism of the group. The evidence of how such behaviour can arise (it doesn’t always) in a military situation of that kind was so damning that the Pentagon apparently declined to publish it.

      So I totally disagree with your observations about group and personal psychologies.’But everyone else is doing it’ – whether explicitly voiced or not – is a very common psychology of group behaviour.

      Starlost, the essays presume a certain level of awareness and intelligence.

      War is hell.

      Has Finland known war since 1945? No. Why? Because it recognized that it borders a big powerful country and if that country wants it neutral and free of US troops, that is the smarter course of action.

      What would (will?) happen if Mexico or Canada host Chinese missile bases?

      Comments like “..persons being mowed down…” and “…reconstituting the Soviet Union” betray your bias, and/or your acceptance of what is being peddled as news, which are mostly half-truths and distortions, which conclude with “if Russia is not stopped now, they will continue expanding, where does it end? Long Island?”

      While I don’t know that 30% of Americans are eager for a nuclear showdown with Russia, I agree there is “mass formation psychosis” when 30% of Americans support a bigger American role in a country that is of very little concern to the US public at large. I just think many of them are too dumb or ignorant to connect the dots and realize in war things often don’t go as planned, and if this war spiral out of control, one of the combatant nations has nuclear weapons, so it could result in a nuclear war.

      The war, for which the US government bears the biggest share of blame, is a godsend for the current administration, which I bet will do all it can to keep it going.

      @ Starlost:

      Like you, I have little use for glib, pop-psychology readings of phenomena. The bizarre herd behavior we’re seeing is more complex than “mass formation psychosis” accounts for. So too is the Fourth Turning narrative.

      What does account for it? There are many contributing factors, ignorance and stupidity being perhaps foremost. These have been diligently nurtured in Americans for decades. Another factor is the immense prestige of the State, nurtured in the public school systems and the MSM. (I grew of believing that the UN was the best thing since sliced bread.) Yet another factor is the vast number of people who are dependent on government. Close to 20% of the workforce is directly employed by some level of government. How many more are government retirees? How many more are indirectly employed by some level of government? People believe what it is in their interests to believe. They promote beliefs that it is in their best interests to induce others to believe. Finally, it seems likely to me that humans are just hard-wired for herd behavior. They are also hard-wired to believe “stuff people say” (“people” being not just our families, friends, and neighbors, but the MSM). They are even more prone to automatically believe stuff they see in print.

      Perhaps a more precise way of looking at this phenomenon would be to call a spade a spade: human are dumb as a box of rocks, suffer from invincible ignorance, and operate largely at the same level of animals–both emotionally and in terms of intellection. No “psychosis” involved at all. They’re just morons. My dog is probably smarter.

      I can’t say I fault JHK (much) for using the term “mass formation psychosis,” as it seems to be shorthand for the above. Perhaps calling it a psychosis is in the spirit of tact–pretending that such behavior is an anomalous break from the silly creatures’ usual behavior. It’s not.

Yet nobody here – to my knowledge – has mentioned it. Are we so wrapped up in what’s happening in the world that we ignore the most meaningful aspects of our existence?

        Couldn’t we put aside our concerns for a day to give thanks for being alive in a beautiful and wonderful cosmos?

        Anthea, I would also add an appreciation from the Medical Profe$$ion, as most native Amerindians seem to be in remarkably poor health, between the alcohol, drugs, junk food (big time) and apparently genetics. Mostly bloated, I’d say.

        Amerindians are thus diligent users of our fine [killer] hospitals & medicine men. Or so I thought: when I went to check up on life expectancy I was perturbed to find that there isn’t much difference between them and us palefaces. Of course that could also be because we honkies are in pretty piss-poor health as well, generally squeaking.

        “According to Census Bureau projections, the 2020 life expectancies at birth for American Indians/Alaska Natives are 78.4 years, with 81.1 years for women, and 75.8 years for men. For non-Hispanic whites the projected life expectancies are 80.6 years, with 82.7 years for women, and 78.4 years for men. It is significant to note that American Indians/Alaska Natives frequently contend with issues that prevent them from receiving quality medical care. These issues include cultural barriers, geographic isolation, inadequate sewage disposal, and low income.”

    On theduran, Alex stated that the Russian MoD (ministry of defense) claims the “biolabs” were creating pathogens specific to Slavic people.

          by computer grammar, my apologies

          I meant to say:

          If true, it’s pathetic that Wimbledon is going to required Medvedev to denounce his country to play in the tournament.

          Just as it was pathetic that Djokovic could not play in the Australian Open because he was not vaccinated.

          DOUBLY pathetic, given the evidence that the mRNA shots are especially risky to 18-30 yr old males, especially athletes exerting themselves (why have so many soccer players, basketball players, even TENNIS players and the ball boys/girls who chase the balls, collapsed and/or died in the past 12 months?)

    “… our country aims to send about $14-billion in aid to Ukraine post-haste, including more javelin anti-tank missiles and weapons described as ‘kamikaze drones’… How do we propose to get these things into Ukraine?… that dollar number and the weaponry talk are fantasies intended to propitiate the roughly thirty percent of Americans who, pollsters report, are avid for an apocalyptic nuclear showdown with Russia.”

    So, one out of every three people in the United States is a full-on RAVING LUNATIC. How comforting for our Nation’s future. And the peaceful co-existence of the citizenry of The Indispensable Nation.

    How ‘bout those eager war-lusting people just volunteer to shepherd those javelin anti-tank missiles and kamikaze drones on their backs to get them to the front lines? This would give them something to satisfy their deranged virtue signaling and keep them out of the way of whatever Americans remain sane. Mickey D’s could provide the road food to make up for all the lost sales from Russia.

    “Readers assure me that Russia is ‘getting its ass kicked’…”

    Yes, all those mean tweets and bake sales to ‘help the War effort’ and yellow-and-blue T-shirts people are wearing now are just ripping the guts out of the ‘enemy’. Don’t know how long anybody can stand up to that kind of devastating pressure.

    “Is it not bad enough that the human race shares the planet with many opportunistic micro-organisms that like to periodically kill off multitudes? Is it a good idea to enhance them, to play lab games with them?”

    Misguided adolescent boys and girls sometimes like to play with fire and matches. These folks grow up to occupy high positions in social structures. But they never lose their destructive tendencies.

    No one ever asks permission to do these destructive, sick things. They just go on ahead and do them because they can and they want to. And if you dare question the safety and necessity of doing such dangerous exploits, they pull out out the ‘Just Following The Science’ bull crap.

    Well, if that is following Science… then Science has to be the first thing to go if we are ever to restore sanity to this Planet.

    I’ve wondered the same thing…How do we propose to get these things into Ukraine? What mind-fuckery theatre the US propaganda has led people down…truly, the all the world is a stage.

    I am NOT one of the readers who think Russia is getting its ass kicked. No siree. I’ll tell you what I think. I think the US is the codependent wife in denial to a husband that’s been cheating and lying and gaslighting, or a codependent husband in denial to a wife that’s been cheating and lying and gaslighting, whichever way you want to look at it. Good interview with Dmitry Orlov in case you haven’t seen it… https://geopoliticsandempire.com/2022/03/01/dmitry-orlov-russia-ukraine/

      How do we propose to get these things into Ukraine?

      As I described in an earlier jest/post —- in a diplomatic pouch of course. All we have to do is re-define a diplomatic pouch as a C5A transport.

      Worked just fine when Medical Totalitarianism chose to re-define a medical “case” as a positive PCR result. (ps: When a person with no symptoms of COVID is tested using the PCR procedure and yields a positive result the probability of it being a false positive is 97.5%. )

    “To what airfield, exactly?”

    Rzeszow, Poland 92 miles WNW of Lviv.

    C-17s, C-130s, Airbus 330s and 400s from all NATO Countries have been pouring in there for weeks. The Russians don’t need satellites, nor do you for the ones that have their transponders switched to public frequency, go to flightradar24 and watch them go in. You can also see the tankers and sigint flights plus the occasional F-16 (rarely, they usually do not have transponders broadcasting to public frequencies).

    We often show a Global hawk, forte10, 11, or 12 usually.

    Two weeks ago a couple of B-52s showed up near the border on public frequency which had me a little puckered, but i guess we just wanted Vlad to know they were around.

    • Epicur March 18, 2022 at 4:16 pm #

      BTW, night is falling and activity usually drops, but right NOW you can see a couple of f-16s Viper51 and 52 headed back to base in Italy.

      It would be really stupid to stage B-52s that close to the front. I can’t imagine all those cargo jets are going to get a free ride for much longer either. The F-16s are probably flying intercept / interdict missions for the AWACS flights.

      • Epicur March 18, 2022 at 7:00 pm #

        The B-52s were out of Fairford, I followed them all the way back to base. You can get reports on their activity at the link below.

        We only show the fighters occasionally, but from the number of tankers orbiting I assume there are a lot of them in the air, just not on public frequency.

          Yeah, that’s right. They would only squawk IFF if they were landing, probably with a maintenance gripe of some sort or another. The B-52s were no doubt a show of force, although I doubt they were that effective in that regard.

      • Epicur March 18, 2022 at 7:01 pm #

I wonder where all of the Ukrainians will settle in the US? If they settle in New York City, then there may be violent ethnic clashes with the Russians living in New York City?

    The Ukrainians will quickly figure out that they can get a lot of free, easy money from the US government by making trouble between the US and Russia. The US government will become a big Money Tree for the Ukrainians in the US, the UK, and Poland?

        what is the legal basis for the feds to prevent one of the States in the United States of America from doing the same thing?

        For example, what if Mexican Americans in Texas (with their increasing numbers) decided to declare an “independent republic?

        And other countries decided to recognize this new republic?

        Same thing with black people in the U.S

          @ Thwack:

          If only! I’ve been saying for 35 years that blacks need their own entirely separate country. Just to sweeten the deal, I have long advocated for giving them a really nice state; namely, California–though that is probably impractical now, as the Mexicans would almost certainly drive them out.

          Maybe one or two of the southern states would suffice–such as Mississippi. Whites would be THRILLED to be able to rid the other states of blacks. Imagine crime-free cities! Imagine excellent urban schools. (Inner-city schools–the white ones, at least–were excellent until around 1970-1975, when the public schools were integrated, thus innundating them with a violent criminal and apparently ineducable element, and certainly one incapable of conducting themselves in a manner consistent with an academic institution.) Imagine being able to ride public transportation or walk the streets at night without without fear. Imagine not having the flee the cities to provide your kids with a safe and decent environment.

          All of you PLEASE move away to your own separate nation! Maybe you would fare better there than the Haitians. (But I’d doubt it.)

Blacks I worked with from the West Indies were desperate to get out of their all black Caribbean countries and emigrate to the US, England or France, not Uganda, Congo or Angola. In the US, as soon as blacks get some money together, they move away from black ghettos and into civilized white neighborhoods. The BLM honchos bought houses in white, upper middleclass neighborhoods, not the Southside of Chicago or Watts in LA.

    American Renaissance

    To wake whites up, we need foolish leftists. In Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky warned his fellow subversives against ceding symbols such as the American flag. He understood that people hear what they want to hear. Conservatives are cheap dates. They will surrender to radical policies if there are couched in soothing words about American patriotism.

    For that reason, I endorse Elie Mystal’s book. He’s a fire bell in the night. He gives white conservatives no comforting illusions. Conservatives who think their America still exists need people like him.

    Let National Review try to find common ground with the assertion the Constitution is “actually trash” written by “actual monsters who were trying to protect their rights to rape the humans they held in bondage.” (p. 1) “Why would I give a f**k about the original public meaning of the words written by these men?” Mr. Mystal asks. Why indeed? “They didn’t ask anyone who looked like me about the Constitution,” he said on The View. Exactly. Elie Mystal has nothing to do with the historic American nation. He has nothing to do with us.

    Jarek: Attn Thwack. He looks like Don King but talks like a White. Maybe that’s why he hates us so much?

    The ladies on the View adored him. The really hate America and are teaching White ladies that that’s the correct attitude.

    And the evil has risen my friends

    From the darkness that lives in some men.

    But in sorrow and fear

    That’s when saints can appear

    To drive out those old snakes once again.

    And they struggle for us to be free

    From the psycho in this human family.

    Ireland’s sorrow and pain

    Is now the Ukraine

    And Saint Patrick’s name is now Zelenskyy.

      Great article that sets the historical stage. It does not however, explain the demonic Azovs, who work for the Globalists and use their own people as human shields, shooting any who try to get away.

      National Socialism is first and foremost about the love of one’s nation and people – and that includes the individuals who comprise it. One can’t say one loves a forest yet hate the trees of the forest.

      The word Nazi comes from the smear, “Ignez” – Bavarian slang for an ignorant peasant. National Socialists fought against this word and then gave up the effort as hopeless, I’m afraid. The Enemy owns the media throughout the Western World. In other words, it controls the nervous system of our social body.

      Try and get an ordinary person to think the Azovs aren’t good Nazis or National Socialists. It’s impossible. They’ve been told otherwise all of their lives by the authorities.

      There’s a great Ray Bradbury short story about a boy who starts to do things he doesn’t want to do. An alien has infected his nervous system. He becomes a mere witness. He thinks thoughts that he doesn’t understand. Then he loses his senses and is trapped in hell….

        Our resident etymologist explains it all to you!
        LOLOLOL

        Ignez is not a smear name for anything.
        It is not even a German name (Ignatz is). .
        Ignez is a Spanish women’s name.

        “Nazi” is a typical German portmanteau, from “Nazionalsozialist.”

        NB: German z is pronounced “ts.”

          Wiki: Nazi

          The full name of the party was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (English: National Socialist German Workers’ Party) and they officially used the acronym NSDAP. The term “Nazi” was in use before the rise of the NSDAP as a colloquial and derogatory word for a backwards farmer or peasant, characterising an awkward and clumsy person, a yokel. In this sense, the word Nazi was a hypocorism of the German male name Igna(t)z (itself a variation of the name Ignatius)—Igna(t)z being a common name at the time in Bavaria, the area from which the NSDAP emerged.[11][12]

          In the 1920s, political opponents of the NSDAP in the German labour movement seized on this. Using the earlier abbreviated term “Sozi” for Sozialist (English: Socialist) as an example,[13] they shortened NSDAP’s name,
          Nationalsozialistische, to the dismissive “Nazi”, in order to associate them with the derogatory use of the term mentioned above.[14][12][15][16][17][18] The first use of the term “Nazi” by the National Socialists occurred in 1926 in a publication by Joseph Goebbels called Der Nazi-Sozi [“The Nazi-Sozi”]. In Goebbels’ pamphlet, the word “Nazi” only appears when linked with the word “Sozi” as an abbreviation of “National Socialism”.[19]

            I am pretty versed in this stuff and have a lot of German-lang. source material at my disposal.

            I have never heard of this history RE: the term Nazi.

            TBH, it sounds like something some woke Wiki editor came up with as a way to link Nazis with “yokel” Trump supporters during the height of the Orange Hitler hysteria.

            “See, those rednecks were actually the REAL Nazis in Germany itself.”

            Wiki has pulled this sort of fantasy revisionism on so many occasions that without delving deep into the source material, I would just call it horseshit.

          • Night Owl March 20, 2022 at 3:41 am #

            I wouldn’t take it as authoritative at this point.

            The commonly accepted definition of Nazi is an abbreviation for the compound Nationalsozialistische, for which it makes perfect sense.

            Even if the Ignatz stuff holds water, it look as though it was a colloquialism and probably had no relevance to anyone in broader Germany.

            German dialects are different enough that they might as well be different languages. Most people within 10 km of Cologne, for example, do not understand Kölsch.

    So church had a by donation for Ukraine meal this evening. The basket was overflowing with 20 $ bills. I didn’t tell anyone that was gonna be weapons, graft or drugs. Good times.

    On the 25th we consecrate Russia and the Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, following her instructions in 1917 just as the bolshevic revolution got started when she told 3 young kids, “If this is done the world will be granted a time of peace, if not, Russia will spread her errors to the world, various nations will be annihilated, and the will be a larger war.”

    Better late than never. A few consecrations have been done but never specifically mentioning Russia by name as per Her original request.

    Some of the “errors” spread by communism include, atheism, humanism, and now transhumanism. Fallout from these include pretty much all our present woes.

    • Jarek March 19, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

      Too late since Russia isn’t Communist anymore. Better to consecrate the United States which is – Communism not being a real system but rather an offensive arm of Capitalism.

      The Orthodox Churches don’t like this initiative at all and never have. Coming from the Catholic Church which has almost completely fallen to Satan now, it is more grotesque than ever.

          Well that is remarkable, I must admit. Date is wrong (by Novermber 2017) and of course JP2 is long gone.

          The Virgin told them the exact time to release the Third Secret. If they had obeyed, it would have warned the word against a bad mass and a bad council. But Pope John (I believe) knew better. Of course he did! He was one of the conspirators.

          Then JP2 released part of it. Why not the whole thing? Thus speculation went into over drive and people concluded that the prophecy had already been fulfilled with his assassination attempt. Still playing around. He thought he knew better too.

          She told them to do one thing. Not a request, an order. They refused to do it. Another fall of man.

    Well, how did the phonecall between Xi Jingping and President Biden go yesterday? Biden was determined to “lay down the law” in regard to any assistance China might lend Russia, but really, what does the world look like to Xi Jinping, safely ensconced in Beijing, surrounded by an ancient civilization, an enormous landmass, an army 10 million strong, and 1.4 billion citizens. I suspect he might not be disposed to take orders from anyone.

    India has contracted to buy all the Russian oil that Russia can ship. Beside a little lip service to appease the Climate Czar, John Kerry, it appears the two largest countries on earth — India and China — aren’t buying into the green energy, ‘Transition to Renewables’ bullsh#t.

      The American Deep State is the laughingstock of the world. The biggest impact though is the proven failure that our form of government is proving itself to be, as an example of freedom for all, we really suck any more.

      Autocracy is beating us up everywhere. How come?

      Autocracy fights to win, not get political favor.

      The Articles of Confederation failed because in a legislative government nothing gets done. Autocracy was added in the form of an executive branch to make things happen.

      Autocracy makes things happen faster, less politics. It’s weakness has always been touted to be bad decisions by fewer folks. Watching the Deep State over the last thirty years, I no longer believe it.

      With a world rapidly approaching a resource and environmental cliff, governments that can respond quickly to change will prevail. The Deep State will not do anything to improve oncoming situations as it only worries about its own power situation.

      A good test of our government is coming, possibly quickly. Two new variants are growing in Europe and Asia. AB2 and Deltacron are their designators. IF they surge in the US, what is the government going to offer? More Fauci? More CDC lies? The main thing that will bother me IF it happens is the lack of seasonability that The coronavirus shows ie, new variant, new surge. Immunity cannot offset the new variants. Vaccines will not work. We are back to pre antibiotic times, with no guards to protect us. Our hope will be the modification of the virus to a milder form.

      Enough Covid. The NWO advances are testing the US form of government, the republic. I wonder what a world government with the NWO in charge would look like? We have three forms of world power nationalistic governments. The weakest security wise is the US which is why the NWO has attacked here first. Next is Russia. How do they takeover a European fascist state with nuclear power? Next is China, an oriental fascist state, also with nukes. Right now the NWO has the US and Europe fighting Russia in Ukraine, what a deal for them.

      What is it going to take for the world’s people to recognize the evil of the NWO, starting with the US?

      You know that Putin wants to purge enemies of the state in Russia. Everyone is calling him a monster for this.

      A question for the USA. Is it legitimate for the freedom of protest to destroy a country, or divide it. Abe Lincoln put this question out in his “a house divided” debates with Douglas. He ended up fighting a bloody civil war to force a protesting segment into line. None of the issues of the civil war have really been resolved ever. They are rising again today.

  53. JohnAZ March 19, 2022 at 11:14 am #

    Watched Cavuto do an interview with a twenty something in Moscow today. She had been jailed for protesting against the war. One of the more astute questions was, “Do the older people of Russia support Putin more than the young people?” Her answer was the first honest answer I have heard on MSM, “Yes.”

    Eureka!!

    Have we heard of this before? Young Progressives protesting against middle aged and older folks on national policy? Young people who do not have a clue what makes things tick in the world, working on emotion only.

    So, let us put this in context.

    Who might be backing these young folks to be the burr under the blanket of their countries? Who might benefit by the breakdown of national fervor inside nationalistic countries like the super powers. NWO? WEF? GND?

    Where have there been young folks protests, riots, obstinence, lack of respect for their national identity? No.1. USA, no.2. Russia, no.3 China.

    Where did a protest state turn a government over to the younger set? Ukraine

    Who is the main group that has allowed the most deterioration of the national model and allowed the NWO to make the global inroads it has? The Deep State of the US.

    I keep thinking of the movie, “The Sum of All Fears”. The Nazi getting the US to war with Russia so that the Nazis would win out.

    Plug in NWO as the Nazi and you have a pretty good analogy to what is going on in Ukraine.

    The real dumb shit in all this is Z, who is sacrificing his county and its people for Biden and his mob. NATO is an after thought here but still is a target for the NWO.

Remember these people you are watching happily aided and abetted the illegal and unconsitutional installation of the “Joe Biden” entity.

      • JohnAZ March 19, 2022 at 12:29 pm #

        Yes, I totally agree.

        Think about this, using Fox as a source.

        Who do they interview?

        Displaced Ukrainians especially young ones. Poor widdle me sad sacks. No middle aged or elderly. No attendees of Putin’s rally. No on site evaluators of the military situation strategy.

        Retired American generals who just back up the lousy American military viewpoint. They all say Russia does not know what it is doing. Surprise? All of them are excellent representatives of the American MIC.

        That is it. No Deep State critics, no Russians, lots of name calling, always a good sign. Balance reporting, my ass. It is hard seeing Fox turn into CNN.

      Yeah! I wonder how much legitimate exploration of the extent of necessary resources the world has to support the NWO and its GND.

      They really suck with their estimates on petroleum. Since JHK in 2005 estimated exhaustion by the end of the century, it has shrunk to 2050 or so.

      Sum it up? We will need Ni, Li, Ag, rare earths, in huge quantities in order to produce an electrical society to replace a fossil fuels economy. Do those reserves exist? Can recycling help?

      Oh, by the way, weight reduction and consequent range improvement comes from the usage of plastics and aluminum. Both need fossil fuels.

      How do we feed everyone without fertilizers? How do we package everything without plastics?
      How do we make medical equipment without plastics?
      How do we maintain infrastructure without concrete, a huge user of fossil fuels? Or asphalt?

      You start envisioning the future that IS coming and you realize what a huge pile of crap that our leaders really are and acknowledge what is going to happen to our kids society.

          All through history this was the norm.

          Enslavement and servitude has been the way of feudalism or monarchy as long as we have had history.

          It will happen again if one can’t or will not feed themselves.
          Subsistence living or useful unemployment to feed oneself is not permitted. It’s entirely controlled and regulated. (If one follows the rules).
          Sameohsameoh.
          We will figure it out.

      Clusterfuck Nation = Deep State.

      When the aims of a government of any nation goes against what the values of the people want, two items occur.

      Civil war either hot or cold. The election process is a form of cold civil war. When it’s legitimacy is unknown, as in 2020, it’s acceptance by the people disappears and it’s moderating effects goes away.

      The government becomes more autocratic. This is what is happening right now. The US has evolved into a nation of gimmes being directed by an autocratic Deep State. Elections are no longer effective in this environment.

      Can you imagine elections during the nobilities of the Middle Ages and its feudalism. No? Then do not be surprised that elections are ignored or manipulated by our 21st century descent into feudalism.

    In a heartfelt presentation for the Heritage Foundation on March 7, American mother Abigail Martinez outlined how the government and the public school system indoctrinated her daughter into thinking she was a “transgender” boy. Martinez explained that the push toward the LGBT lifestyle that her daughter experienced ultimately led to the DCFS (Department of Children and Family Services) taking her out of the Martinez home and ended with the teenage girl committing suicide.

    In the beginning of the speech, Martinez explained how her daughter was the stereotypical “girly girl” growing up, who enjoyed to play “dress-up” and other traditionally feminine activities.

    After suffering through a period of bullying, Martinez’s daughter began showing “signs of depression” in middle school. Upon her child’s transition into high school, the depressed mood only continued to worsen, causing Martinez to ask the school to “keep an eye” on her child.

    According to Martinez, without her knowledge, her daughter eventually started attending the “LGBT” group at school, and came home explaining that she was now a “boy.” Martinez said she knew that a so-called transition would not fix the problem, and that her daughter had a “mental health” issue not a gender identity issue.

    Martinez’s desire for her daughter to seek mental health counseling before taking drastic steps such as so-called hormone therapy was seen as a red flag by school administrators, who reported to the DCFS that her daughter would “be better off out of the house.”

    According to Martinez and Heritage Foundation senior research fellow Jay Richards, Martinez’s daughter was “incentivized” to agree with being removed from the home, because she was told that if she was under the custody of the state of California, the state would pay for her so-called transition.

    The DCFS agreed with the school and concluded that since Martinez was apprehensive of her daughter’s desire to mutilate her healthy body before undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, she was unfit to be her child’s caregiver, and the DCFS removed the then 16-year-old girl from the care of Martinez.

    According to Martinez, she was only allowed to visit her daughter “once a month,” and only under direct supervision. Martinez said she was also instructed to not talk about certain topics to her own daughter, including any references to “God.”

    In tears, Martinez explained that it was during this time when her daughter was removed from the home for the purposes of “transitioning” that she tragically took her own life.

    “I don’t have my daughter anymore … September 2019 … she decided to take her life away,” Martinez stated.

    “She went to the railroad track, I was told that she just walked in front of the train, lay on her knees, raise her hands, and took her life away,” the mother sobbed.

    In her concluding remarks, Martinez said that she wants “everyone to know what happened to our family, because it didn’t have to happen.”

    “ … I didn’t want it to happen, I don’t want this to happen to any other family … ” she pleaded.

    Martinez’s story is not an isolated incident. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 50.8 percent of adolescent women who “transition” to young “men” attempt suicide, compared with just 9.8 percent for the biologically male population.

    Jarek: These evil schools. These evil “teachers devoid of any moral compass, who never thought about anything in all of their days.

    Why do parents send their children there? They have to work now that so many women have decided to work (thus lowering wages). That’s assuming she even has a husband or ever did.
    As Obama’s mother said, I don’t need to get married to have children.

    If you can avoid sending your child to these Temples of Satanism, do so.

    • MaryQueen March 19, 2022 at 1:59 pm #

      This is sadly not an atypical story, although of course they don’t all end in suicide. This suicide, no doubt, will be used by the trans activists to ‘prove’ that trans people die of suicide in higher numbers than anyone else (massive eye roll here).

      The trans scourge is a bad one, and most folks don’t realize just how insidious it is. It is destroying families, and society as a whole. It has been completely engineered, and has gotten way worse in the past 5 years.

      Now we see it culminating in a big hulking 6’4″ male swimmer gobbling up all the awards and scholarships that young women should be achieving. And a crazy, eldercidal maniac in a wig being awarded “Woman of the Year”. If anyone doesn’t believe liberals aren’t bonkers I don’t know what will convince them at this point.

      When will more people step up to the plate? I’ve been fighting it for years. It’s exhausting.

        Yes it is very exhausting because they are attacking and destroying 24/7/365. I totally agree but would modify one thing. They aren’t bonkers. At least those of them that are at the helm of that depraved and wicked mothership. They know exactly what they do. They want to dissolve all family units and vaporize parental rights and dominion. In doing so this will set the way for the complete top down control of every individual by the state entity. This is really another avenue to the beast system.

    Today is the last day of winter. Spring begins tomorrow at 11:33 AM. Spring is traditionally known as a time of renewal, when the Earth awakens. Yet nobody here – to my knowledge – has mentioned it. Are we so wrapped up in what’s happening in the world that we ignore the most meaningful aspects of our existence?

    Couldn’t we put aside our concerns for a day to give thanks for being alive in a beautiful and wonderful cosmos?

    Mr. K enjoys revisionism as much as Mr. Putin. Ukraine begat Russia with the Kyivian Rus civilization in the early medieval age, and called the colony – Russia and Moscow was still a village. The Kyivian civilization retreated under the invasion by Mongol Hordes, saving Europe from conquest in the process. Russian government opportunists, rather barbarians and vultures, with Poland and Lithuania subsequently took advantage.

    Lenin whilst implementing his just socialist society, subsequently gave back Ukraine to its righteous owners. Poland, Slovakia, Romania followed suit over the following decades relinquishing their ill-gotten land to Ukraine. Lenin’s historical pontifications on the real extent of Ukraine is irrefutable evidence of the integrity of Ukraine’s sovereignty.

    If delusional, misguided individuals refute the history of Ukraine in spite of real and present evidence; you can go ‘f..k yourself’.

    • Disaffected March 19, 2022 at 3:37 pm #

      Doesn’t really matter whether Ukraine considers itself “sovereign” or not. Once they got in bed with the scoundrels from the US as a means to fuck with Russia all that went out the window. That really is the bottom line. How long do you think the US would put up with an anti-US color revolution in Mexico for example? ‘Monroe Doctrine’ and all that exceptionalist bullshit. And as we all know (or should know), any nation that’s doing the US’s bidding can hardly be considered sovereign in any meaningful sense anyway.

      Putin could and did put all this to rest when he spelled it out – quite generously to boot! – that a US instigated provocative Ukraine on its borders would simply not be allowed. Ad now he’s following up on that promise in no uncertain terms. Kudos to him. Call it the Putin Doctrine, if you will. And get ready, because this certainly won’t be the end of it. The US continues to pour fuel on the fire by sending weapons into the region to foment more unrest and warfare, just as it has done so many other places before. Poland certainly appears to be begging to have it’s name emblazoned on Russia’s target list at this point, as well as all the NATO lackeys that are also complicit.

      As China and Russia continue to partner up, the US’s place in the world will continue to shrink, until silly arguments in the US about what other countries in the world should or should not be doing will fade away, and Americans will finally realize what they should have known all along: all the true enemies of the US exist right here within our borders and they’re the ones who presume to appoint themselves as “our rulers.”

      I am not an expert on Russian history. Also, key points in your first paragraph are consistent with my understanding (for whatever reason, from whatever distance source I read it, and allowing for my hazy memory on a topic that was never very important to me) that the cradle of Russian civilization was Kiev. Also, a cursory look at historical atlases confirms that Poland/Lithuania did at one point control much of the Ukraine. I think even Sweden may have controlled as far south as Kiev, before Poland/Lithuania did.

      If the “Ukraine” begat Russia, then by 1700, which was a long, long time ago, it was clear that the offspring had surpassed the parent, much like Britain begat the US and Canada, but by the 20th century, the US had surpassed Britain.

      Unfortunately, the assertion that Lenin’s society was “just” is very debatable and hence undermines your arguments–IMO.

      The Czars, who were less autocratic in 1914 than in 1814, were replaced by the far more ruthless Communist Party, and the quality of life of the masses generally decreased, despite Soviet accomplishments in science. That is just?

      The “Soviet Socialist Republics” were about asserting Soviet control over the country, not returning it to its “righteous owners”.

      Communism and socialism, as practiced in the USSR, are discredited.

      Military might on the ground, under any type of government, is a force that cannot be dismissed. The Soviet Army’s slow, bloody, rebound and march into Germany is the reason why modern Poland (another map) looks like some one picked up pre-1939 Poland and dragged it 150-200 miles to the WEST, displacing millions of Germans from their homelands in Prussia, East Prussia, Silesia and giving that all to Poland, and taking L’wow, now Lviv, formerly Lemberg when administered by Austria, and making it… part of the Ukraine.

    “The Russian army is the last bastion against the satanic new world order”. Literal quote from the official Russian Officer’s Handbook. Captured by Ukrainian GUR, document appears authentic.

    Who can disagree? Only the “rootless cosmopolitans” that Colonel Douglas Macgregor mentions as the people behind all this. Looks like American’s new favorite guy is going to be disappeared from the airwaves. The Truth is not allowed there or anywhere, really.

      Wow I had’t heard that particular descriptor for a little bit. I hope the Colonel isn’t silenced but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Lara Logan is still out there on places like Real America’s Voice. She says that the labs are absolutely bioweapons labs and not just biological research facilities. She also said that most Western media don’t have a clue of what’s going on. She says the invasion is more like an operation to seize and secure all of these facilities as well as all the criminal enterprises the Western elites were operating over there.

          Why isn’t Putin up there of accusing his majority citizens of White Supremacy and Transphobia, and lecturing them on the Climate Crisis? When he gets dragged up before the ICC at the Hague he will have to explain this and many other things.

          Certainly a sharp contrast to anything we could find here at the moment. It’s odd actually that the media hasn’t accused Russia of white supremacy at this point. Especially given these particular visuals. Probably they don’t want to show images of people appearing patriotic and happy since patriotism is literally labeled domestic terrorism and white supremacy by the feds and happy is in shrinking supply given the unmitigated and total collapse of the economy and the social order?

    On the Consecration: Imagine you and your ex-fiance run into each other. The spark is immediately rekindles into a huge flame. She has to go back tells you to meet her the next evening at the place you two first met. You agree but don’t make it. You call to apologize. You reschedule. You don’t make that one either for some reason.

    She feels she’s being played with and stops taking your calls. Years later, you admit to yourself your mistake and decide to go to the place where you two were supposed to meet. Why? She won’t be there. Even if you had her number, she wouldn’t come. She’s moved on to a happy marriage with someone else.

    Space is never enough. Space-Time is the complete coordinate. The consecrations is meaningless because it missed the time frame.

        My story isn’t developed enough to give you an answer, but:

        Forest is a Christ figure. Jenny wasn’t worthy of him – but neither was any one else. He was born to be a suffering servant and will return as a conquering king.

        In the Old Religions, the gods would often lay with mortal women. From this pov, Jenny was a very lucky woman. But Forest, being more than just a god, hid behind his infirmity and played the role of the spurned lover so as not to hurt her feelings. And he waited for her to come back.

          Paula, Do they really do that? dump the sewage into the sea? I thought there were some international law of the sea that prohibited that . . .

          I can’t help but contribute my recent musings re fecal waste.

          Namely, that humans seem to be the only organisms whose waste is sidelined out of the natural system of recycling all materials.

          Think dung beetles.

          Recently I saw a video that explained how right whales’ contribute to the ecological dynamism by feeding near the bottom of the ocean and pooping near the surface—where phytoplankton use the poop ingredients as fertilizer. The phytoplankton go on to produce 1/2 of the oxygen in the atmosphere of planet Earth.

          So, much as the thought of tons of human sludge going into the Caribbean is quite vomitous, possibly it wends its way into the Gulf Stream and provides a meal for organisms that can make good use of it.

          Unlike the plastic tsunami.

            That could very well be, JAZ. Although, keep in mind that as The Shrub himself said, he was just “the decider.” Staffers do all the real work. And in Shrub’s case, he was only there to rubber stamp Cheney’s decisions.

        Me, too.

        Back in Falmouth, Mass. , a littel group of us had been demonstrating in front of the Post Office since January, holding up signs with messages such as “Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire” (this was my sign, with my best rendition of Bush hopping about with diaper on fire).

        On the day the invasion started I knew the country had crossed a Rubicon, and permanently altered the USA’s, and the world’s, possible futures. For the worse. No going back.

        And we were right. We knew damn well that Colin Powell was also lying. We knew that Tony Blair was lying. We knew that they were all a pack of liars.

        A few years later Bush was actually crassly joking about looking for WMDs under a desk at a press roast.

        Now he is treated some like kind of eminence grise—while the shmucks pay his pension.

        We who were actually the seers.

    Looks like year ’round DST is no slam dunk after all. With so many real issues to consider, why are they even messing with this in the first place? Oh, that’s right. To change the conversation from Brandon’s many failures. The old boy can’t tell night from day anyway, so why worry about it?

    • MaryQueen March 19, 2022 at 7:17 pm #

      • Islander March 20, 2022 at 9:43 am #

        I think it was originally started to give farmers more time in the day for farm activities, and so children who also worked on their families’ farms, would not have to go to school in the dark in order to get home and do the farming.

        Perhaps this is just a fable. However, it is true that children and young folk worked on their family farms, and that most children in rural areas walked to school.

        • Disaffected March 20, 2022 at 10:43 am #

          That’s the story I heard as well. Thing is, most farmers back then worked sunup to sundown regardless of what the clock said. And I think most rural schools rolled with the same rhythm as well. And at harvest time the older kids who were essential to the farm would just skip school altogether if need be.

          The other story I’ve heard is that DST’s goal is to create more usable leisure time in the evenings, the better to encourage TV viewership and thus increase advertising revenues. Regardless, it damn sure encourages people to stay up later. Most of the people I know think I’m loony because I follow the sunup to sundown rule, myself. I’ve fallen into it gradually as I got older, but now I wouldn’t have it any other way. I think the body naturally prefers it that way.

    For several years I have been following Medpage Today, as a lurker (since I know practically nothing about medicine, in spite of being an enthusiastic student of it).

    There is a sign of hope among the legions of corrupted / fearful / conflict-avoidance masses of professionals, as evidenced in the lively comments section of an article scorning Florida’s approach to mandatory this-and-that.

    Here is a selection of the comments from physicians:

    =====================

    JohnM Samuel_Chase • a day ago • edited
    “A report released by the UK government has confirmed that 9 out of every 10 deaths related to COVID-19 are found in those who are fully vaccinated.” It would seem that vaccines are not the panacea for reducing deaths nor infection based on this.

    Edwin_Leschhorn_MD • 4 days ago • edited
    I, and several pediatricians in my area, oppose the vaccination in healthy kids and adamantly oppose vaccination in 5 y.o. and younger. The mRNA vaccine becomes ineffective against Omicron about 10 or more weeks after a booster (45.7% (95% CI, 44.7 to 46.7)), it has no long term track record and the covid mortality in kids is about 0.005%. I just saw a report on the autopsies of two teenagers in the archives of pathology and lab medicine with fatal myocarditis showing necrosis of myocytes and acute inflammation after a second Pfizer shot. Also, reported mortality of 1.3% in USA based on VAERS. Why run that risk??

    You are a pathologist in New Jersery. You are not a pediatrician. Please list those pediatricians you emphatically claim. I will wait forever because you can’t.

    Attn Alba:

    Bullet points of Putin’s speech. He says the same thing: The Ukrainians were massing for an attack against the Donbas.

    RT

    Conflict was inevitable

    Launching the “special military operation” was the only option Russia had left to end the years-long bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, Putin stressed. At the same time, limiting its scope to the breakaway Donbass republics only would only push the “frontline” westwards, rather than defuse the situation, he noted.

    While waging the war against the breakaway regions of Donbass, Kiev has been preparing for a broad offensive to re-capture them, Putin said, adding that “almost 14,000 civilians, including children, have been killed” in the conflict. Ukrainian authorities also sought to attack Crimea, which split from the country back in 2014 and joined Russia via a referendum.

    “Encouraged by the United States and other Western countries, Ukraine was purposefully preparing for a scenario of force, a massacre and an ethnic cleansing in Donbass. A massive onslaught on Donbass and later Crimea was just a matter of time. However, our Armed Forces have shattered these plans,” Putin said.

    Kiev actively sought weapons of mass destruction

    Ukrainian authorities have openly stated their goal to obtain weapons of mass destruction, namely nuclear bombs and means of their delivery, Russia’s president has said. Given the extremely hostile attitude of Kiev, such systems would have been used to target Russia once they were ready.

    Putin also touched upon the Ukrainian biolab network allegations, raised by the Russian military amid the offensive. The facilities scattered across the country have allegedly been engaged in biological weapons development with direct support of Washington. The allegations, backed by documents published by the Russian military, have been met with varying degrees of denial from the top US officials.

    “There was a network of dozens of laboratories in Ukraine, where military biological programs were conducted under the guidance and with the financial support of the Pentagon, including experiments with coronavirus strains, anthrax, cholera, African swine fever and other deadly diseases,” Putin said, adding that now “frantic attempts” are underway to conceal the “traces of these secret programs.”

    Ukraine established as ‘anti-Russia’

    Over the past few years, under the close guidance of their Western handlers, the Kiev authorities have morphed Ukraine into “anti-Russia”, Putin suggested. The only goal of the incumbent Kiev “regime” is to drag the conflict on for as long as possible, with little regard to the fate of the civilians or destruction that ensues.

    “We are seeing again and again that the Kiev regime, for which its Western masters have set the task of creating an aggressive ‘anti-Russia’, is indifferent to the fate of the people of Ukraine themselves,” Putin said.

    “It is also obvious that the Western handlers are simply pushing the Kiev authorities to continue the bloodshed. They are supplied with more and more weaponry batches, they are provided with intelligence, they also receive other assistance, including military advisers and mercenaries.”

    Kiev & West exhibit ‘shocking cynicism’

    Both Ukrainian authorities and the collective West have exhibited “shocking cynicism” amid the conflict, Putin said, offering the ballistic missile strike on the center of Donetsk that occurred on Monday as an example of such behavior. The strike killed at least 20 civilians.

    “They are striking randomly at squares with the fervor of fanatics and the exasperation of the doomed. They are acting like the Nazis did when they tried to drag as many innocent victims as they could to their graves,” Putin said, adding that Kiev had tried to blame the strike on Russia through “blatant lies.”

    The attitude of “the so-called civilized world” to the missile strike turned to be “shocking in its extreme cynicism” as well, the president went on.

    “The European and American press did not even notice this tragedy in Donetsk, as if nothing happened,” Putin said. “Just like they have been hypocritically looking the other way over the past eight years as mothers buried their children in Donbass, as elderly people were killed. This is simply moral degradation, complete de-humanization.”

    Crumbling dominance of the West behind global turmoil

    Ultimately, the West’s desire to maintain its global dominance is the root of the ongoing Ukrainian turmoil, as well as crises in the other parts of the globe, Putin believes.

    Today, the entire planet has to pay the price for the ambitions of the West, for its attempts by any means to maintain its crumbling dominance,” he said.

    Concerned only with their “vested interests and super profits,” the Western elites led the world into the current situation through “years of mistakes and short-sited decisions.”

    For instance, the impact of the anti-Russian sanctions, imposed over the Ukrainian conflict, is already being felt by the common people in the West – while the elites have been bizarrely trying to blame it on Moscow, Putin noted.

    “I want ordinary Western people to hear me as well. You are being persistently told that your current difficulties are the result of Russia’s hostile actions and that you have to pay from your own pockets for the efforts to counter the alleged Russian threat. All of that is a lie.”

    Jarek: Zelensky was actively seeking nuclear weapons. Well I hadn’t heard that so directly.

    He confirms an attack on the Donbas was being prepared if not imminent. And that since the whole country was “anti-Russian” since the coup, taking the two republics just wasn’t gong to cut it.

    Finally he blames Western hubris and their greed for resources as the root cause. Islander’s point is confirmed, at least in his mind. Was their gambit wise? Doesn’t seem to be! But they almost certainly have more tricks up their sleeve. Is a neutral Ukraine possible at this point? Partisans, anyone?

      Biden is flying to Brussels on Thursday. Making these transatlantic flights can’t be easy for a guy pushing 80, but at least you can say Biden is game. It reminds one of Stalin summoning a moribund and sick President Roosevelt half way around the world to Tehran in Nov. 1943. That trip pretty much did Roosevelt in, and at the time Roosevelt was 15 years younger than Biden is now. My hope is that a befuddled Biden doesn’t do something stupid enough that it will trigger WWIII. I see historical comparisons being made in the MSM: Putin is Hitler, Z is Churchill, Biden … a modern day Talleyrand.

My presumably former friend who told me my mental health wasn’t what it should be (because I told her about the biosurveillance future that is being prepared for us) is busy making felt lapel flowers in yellow and blue, as I saw on her Facebook page (I was checking to see she was still OK – she had covid and then had a heart attack about a month after her second jab – she’s now had a third one).

    5,500 children are now on NHS waiting list for gender swap treatment after post-lockdown surge in demand

    “Thousands of children are on waiting list for treatment at controversial Tavistock and Portman Trust’s Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) in London

    Senior figures at NHS trust are concerned ‘the list had grown substantially during lockdown’; admitted it was a huge ‘preoccupation’ for Board of Trustees

    In Jan 2021, Care Quality Commission reported after inspecting GIDS that the list was 4,600”

Namely, big pharma. They want ‘patients for life.’ The trans folk need ongoing surgeries and hormone therapy, they can never stop.

    • GreenAlba March 20, 2022 at 5:02 pm #

      Basically these kids saw their mental health deteriorate because of lockdowns and related Orwellian ‘public health’ measures and are flailing about looking for something they think will resolve their anxieties. A fairly typical explanation for trans crises arising in individuals but amplified by lockdowns. And by social media. Just as copycat suicides are a thing, so are copycat identity crises.

    Lia Thomas is Alpha and Chad and Conservative Whiners are Just Jealous of the Size of His Balls
    Andrew Anglin March 20, 2022

    Conservatives whining about Lia Thomas are just butthurt babies who are jealous that they didn’t have the balls to pretend to be a woman and get famous and rich and celebrated by the entire culture for literally doing nothing other than demonstrating male physical dominance over women.

    The same conservatives now specifically targeting Lia were saying years ago that they support “adults’ right to make their own life decisions” when asked about trannies.

    I didn’t see a single one of these cowards calling for trannies to be banned and arrested. They all abandoned basic Christian values and instead embraced the idiotic liberal idea that society doesn’t really exist so individuals can do whatever they want as long as it’s not directly physically harming another person.

    Then, after they stand by and allow society to descend into a Trannypocalypse, they come out whining that it’s “not fair” that an alpha male chad is singlehandedly destroying the entire concept of women’s sports for laughs and personal gain, forcing the media into covering for his based agenda.

    Conservatives are literally player-haters.

    Did these whiny faggots never hear “don’t hate the player, hate the game”?

    They allowed for the game to be established as a social norm by hiding behind “individual choice” and refusing to call for trannies to be arrested and interned in mental hospitals.

    You thought allowing for tranny normalization wouldn’t lead to men pretending to be women to destroy women’s sports? Really? You couldn’t think that far ahead? “No one could have predicted it”?

    Frankly, conservatives who did this “individual choice” bit are MORE responsible for the trannyization than the liberals who came up with the idea. Liberalism is run by the [redacted] and they’re always going to try to do whatever sick and destructive thing you can imagine. The reason conservatives are supposed to exist is to push back against this and prevent these things from happening.

    But they never do.

    They allow these things to happen and then whine about it.

    It’s gay and retarded, and conservatives are fags.

    Either take a stand or don’t.

    Refusing to take a stand and then whining about the results of your refusal to take a stand is the epitome of just being a bitch.

    Now they whine that no one can speak out against it. Okay, well, you know when that wasn’t true? Ten years ago when they were first normalizing this. Ten years ago mainstream leftists were making jokes about trannies.

    Ten years ago, the conservative movement could have organized against trannies, and they chose not to, instead citing some totally inane gibberish about “personal freedom.”

    Now they whine and act all shocked and outraged.

    American principles – show me your statements in 2014 that trannyism should be outlawed and trannies should be locked in mental facilities. But you won’t, because you don’t have any “American Principles.” You have muddled “values” that don’t even make any coherent sense and cannot possibly serve as the basis of a society.

    Just shut up, you losers.

    Lia Thomas actually has the balls to force his will upon the world. You don’t, because you’re cowards who do nothing but whine and act outraged over the results of your own failure to stand on actual principles.

    Jarek: Vintage Anglin, showing his typical Greek clarity. Nothing to add apart from disagreeing with his cheeky, “Don’t hate the player” stuff. It is funny, but I prefer Tucker’s, Lia Thomas is fucking aggressive and hates girls. But at the same time, Tucker made Anglin’s point when he said, he had the right to do whatever he wanted. Well this is what he wanted to do with his “femininity”. Freaks are going to do bad things.

    Anglin shows pictures of Lia – the actual and then the one released by the press. They’re playing games with the camera or software to make Lia look softer and more feminine.

    • Disaffected March 20, 2022 at 1:00 pm #

        Sadly, he wasn’t a bad looking guy at all. Unlike, say, Rachel Latrine the ‘admirable’.

        LOL.

        Lia’s all shoulders and absolutely no female attributes whatsoever. He has long hair, I guess he thought that and a bit of mascara would do the job.

        I disagree with Anglin, he’s not bold. He’s a coward. He couldn’t cut it against male swimmers so instead he decided to beat girls and ruin their chances for scholarships, etc. I do agree with Anglin that he’s mentally ill.

        Very interesting tidbit, I was sharing a video of the award ceremony with a friend, and we noticed (in addition to Lia being booed) that female swimmer #5 did not clap for Lia as the others did. Come to find out, she’s a lesbian who was all in favor of the Trans Agenda and LGBT woo woo and it’s come back to bite her in the ass.

        Life lesson learned! (let’s hope).

        • cbeard March 20, 2022 at 11:08 pm #

          Not only is he mentally ill. The fucking idiots who allowed him to compete against girls are completely insane.

    • SoftStarLight March 20, 2022 at 2:30 pm #

      It’s a harsh but fair criticism. On so many issues including these foundational cultural and social issues what are conservatives conserving. Anglin is right that it’s not so much your values alone but are you making an actual impact in the real world. And in that regard conservatives haven’t achieved that in generations basically. But even if one wanted to have even a traditionally liberal perspective on the situation given Lia Thomas’ massive physical structure lol it is ojectively fair that Lia compete with other males or compete in a separate category altogether with other trans.

      • BackRowHeckler March 20, 2022 at 3:33 pm #

        Problem is there are only a few other trans; they are like .006% of the population. A separate trans division in any sport would be a mighty small division.

        • SoftStarLight March 20, 2022 at 4:26 pm #

          Exactly. People with actual real gender dysphoria that persists beyond puberty and is not a product of overwhelming psyops are extraordinarily miniscule. But it is something that has always been there no matter how any particular society has “dealt with it”. From what I’ve read some indigenous Indian tribes believed there was a third sex. Because those individuals were rare it seems like they either were considered to be or became shamans in some tribes. They were probably killed in others. So I guess in that case the categories would be like XY, XX, X? or something like that.

        • MaryQueen March 20, 2022 at 4:53 pm #

          No, the problem is that they wouldn’t go for it.

          The reason these men are pretending to be women & competing against them in part is because they get off on it. They get off on being seen as a woman, and they love the idea of humiliating women as well.

          You put them on a trans-only team and they lose that.

    I have been watching Fox and it’s lineup of analysts since Ukraine made the front page.

    I really disagree with some of the folks on the blog that these government folks are smart schemers. This people really are stupid, making remark after remark that shows how stupid they really are. I heard today that we have to make sure that we cut off Russia’s access to oil. WTF, is this man nuts? He was a house member. He is responsible for the intelligence of the country and the making of its laws.

    No damned wonder we are going down faster and faster.

    I thought for a while that the future of Europe was going to be the fusion of Russia and the EU into an economic bloc. That would be a threat to US dominance in the area.

    Hmmm? Do you think that might have something to do with what is going on, especially from a NWO perspective?

    One more. Do you think that Siberia opening up with AGW gives Russia the resources to contain a much larger population. Russia’s population is actually falling. Hmmm, look around, is there a country with a whole bunch of population, to surplus, that could be used to settle the area? The US should be VERY concerned about the formation of an Asian axis, the Silk Road is just the beginning.

      I don’t recall anyone up here ever accusing Fox News squawking heads to be ‘smart schemers’. They’re just paid propagandists. Am I missing something, here?

    • SoftStarLight March 20, 2022 at 3:05 pm #

      Well most often its the shadow people behind the politicians and gov officials who are the true smart schemers. The United States is now in a complete Soviet Union style collapse but Fox News except for like Tucker has no earthly clue. Neither does the rest of the mainstream sellout cia propaganda outlets. They still believe the United States is a superpower instead of a soon to be isolated third world rogue state. The coming weeks and minds will definitely blow up the talking heads. But no doubt their spin will still get more untethered from reality and grandiose in any case. But reality will make them look increasingly insane and irrelevant.

        Biden is threatening to sanction the whole world lol.

        Good luck with that, seeing as how we amount to 5% of the earth’s population.

        • SoftStarLight March 20, 2022 at 4:40 pm #

          Yep exactly again lol. And I think i heard that the US along with all the countries that decided to sanction Russia per command may be about 15% of the global population. So most of the world will continue doing business with Russia. And I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Western countries and companies start backtracking at some point. I saw a video on youtube of a Russian family shopping in a mall and showing the stores that closed like mcdonalds and ikea. Not sure how they were even able to post. But basically the signs on the stores in Russian noted that they were temporarily closed. So they will reopen at some point. As if for profit companies have morals or something. Sanctions are a big joke in the end. And now unfortunately so is the joke on all of us who are ruled over by these traitors, scum and satanists. Anyway yeah a dumb idea for sure lol

            I saw a video yesterday of a dude in Russia showing McDonalds open again, but of course I can’t find it now.

          • SoftStarLight March 20, 2022 at 11:45 pm #

            Yeah it’s funny because I don’t see the video I refered to either anymore so they are apparently purging them. So even harmless content is being prevented from getting through. But of course Putin is a tyrant so censorship good lol.

    F##k me. Down in Hamden packs of Club Members are assaulting old ladies in the Stop & Shop parking lot as they load groceries into their car, beating up the old (white) ladies, stealing their pocket book, car & groceries, leaving these elderly woman bleeding on the pavement. One victim yesterday was 81 years old. There used to be a Racist chain link fence between the Town of Hamden and the Fairhaven Housing Project keeping the distinguished Fairhaven residents out of Hamden, but ‘Activists’ (upperclass white women from Yale and Greenwich) raised hell until the White Supremacist fence was removed. The upshot is that Hamden residents are now easy prey and dead meat. The Mayor is a Democrat, a white woman who is afraid even to identify the assailants, even tho it’s all on video; everybody knows who they are.

    This is the war I’m worried about. Defenseless old people seem to be the main casualties and the PTB could give a sh#t less, they have other priorities.

    • stelmosfire March 20, 2022 at 4:38 pm #

      I hear your man Blumenthal put in a bill to arm the old ladies down there. He’s gonna hand out AK’s to any one who wants to fight back. It’s working in Ukraine so why not?

      The reason these men are pretending to be women & competing against them in part is because they get off on it. They get off on being seen as a woman, and they love the idea of humiliating women as well.

      Interesting comment MaryQueen. As an amused reader of your running battle with “Jarek” I guess we can anticipate a “Ms. Jarek” in the near future.

    “The Joe Biden Cartel,” is giving $13.6 billion of our hard earned tax dollars to Nazis in Ukraine. You know the Biden Cartel – they’re the ones who staged a coup and took over the country during the 2020 ‘election’.

    How do we defund them? Create our own monetary system? Bitcoin or old fashioned barter?

    Or stop paying taxes – but a large percentage of us must do this, more than the prisons can hold, or it will not work.

    How do we shake the stranglehold of these parasites when it seems like every nook and cranny has a Soros appointed stooge occupying it? We could try securing the vote. Not easy at this point, but we need at least to insure that there will be no mail-in elections in the future. Low tech – hand counted paper ballots, voter ID.

    The only other solution is to pray for an EMF attack or a solar flare large enough to fry every fücking thing on the grid forever amen. That would be the only ‘global reset’ I would endorse. Then we can talk about ‘build back better’.

    • stelmosfire March 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm #

      13.6 billion, that’s $110 from every person in the USA that pays income tax. So My wife and I donated 220 bucks. Nobody asked me. I’ve been in a few stores today. At every register I was asked if I would like to donate to Ukraine. I just said I already did. Was I lying? An elderly lady in front of me added ten bucks for Ukraine. Who knows where all that money is going. Ukraine is so corrupt they have their own Wiki page about it.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_in_Ukraine

      My town has a Ukrainian Church. They had a relief drive. They filled two 53 foot trailers with stuff. They said they are flying it to Ukraine. How much does that cost? They could not even fit the stuff in the two trucks . The rest they are shipping by sea. Why bother? That is just my town. Imagine the thousands of relief efforts around the world. I’m sure many of these refugees are glad to get out of there. I know hundreds will be coming locally, guaranteed. We got hundreds after the USSR broke up in the early ’90’s. They built a huge church. I rented to a couple of the families. Nice people. They would sweep the sidewalk in front of the house. Never had an American do that.

      • BackRowHeckler March 20, 2022 at 7:53 pm #

        We know the tons of ordnance and weaponry being sent to Ukraine will end up being sold on the black market; where will the rest of the junk go?

    • SoftStarLight March 21, 2022 at 12:24 am #

      I would prefer not to have to experience the apocalypse to potentially shake off the parasites but I suppose there may not be or probably isn’t any other choice.

    Pro-Ukrainian rally in Israel. Ukrainian flags with the Star of David superimposed. They do here too with out flag. So utterly inappropriate and offensive.

    Zelensky addressed the Israeli parliament, begging for them to end their neutrality and sell them their Iron Shield defense system.

    I doubt they’ll go for it. That’s what America is for.

    Zelensky’s show, Servant of the People, now on American Netflix.

      Watching PBS Frontline ‘Putins Road to War`. Every Deep State douchebag from James Clapper to Victoria Nuland appears on the program. Not surprisingly, President Trump looms large, mostly as Putin’s partner in world domination. Not a word about NATO expansion, corruption in Ukraine and the Biden’s and Kerry’s involvement into it. Putin himself is shown in an unflattering light, with an evil scowl on his face like Pluto in old Popeye cartoons.

        Yeah I remember when Nancy Piglet said that she didn’t really care about statues and people will do what they do. In taking her attitude to heart one could just sort of look at Ukraine and say let the bitch burn but then of course like you’ll end up on a list should you care about that sort of thing. The same people who loved blm and antifa revolution are the same people who were covid mask and vax nazis and they are now the same people who want you to die for the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

      Lol omg it looks like theres a lot of subterfuge going on. Like when Putin said once a few days ago that they were de de-nazifying and not just de-nazifying. So it’s all strange really. I don’t really believe there are nazis. But then again maybe everyone is a nazi including Zelensky. He wears the iron cross symbol all the time.

        And they are basically winning anyway at this point which I’m glad and I hope they uncover everything the Biden and Clinton crime families were doing over there in addition to everything else the US elites were doing. Don’t forget how they like to bomb civilians all over the world too.

    Yes Jim, as Gillian Flynn says, “How confusing to live in the shadow of a shadow”.

    Is the substance casting shadow or is the shadow casting substance? Is the illusion a delusion, or is the delusion just an illusion?

    Biden’s shadows are casting the delusion filled substance, trying to form the perfect illusion.

    Umbras, penumbras, antumbras, shadows within shadows, what depths are there to darkness?

    Another elderly woman was assaulted in a parking lot in Hamden yesterday; car, pocketbook and groceries gone, but also serious injuries incurred. The woman is 74 so her injuries are more or less permanent.

    Round up the usual suspects.

    NO CAN DO THE USUAL SUSPECTS ARE BEYOND REPROACH.
