​  ​Ukraine Air Force Commander Says Pilots Are Training to Fly F-16s in US
 ​USG neocons—such as Senators Richard Blumenthal, Sheldon Whitehouse, and the ever-bellicose and apparently criminally insane, Lindsay Graham—are celebrating escalation.
“The combination of tanks, fighter aircraft, and ATACMS will help Ukraine confront the upcoming Russian offensive and go on offense in both the east and the south in an attempt to further erode Russia’s capability to continue fighting in Ukraine. Let’s give the Ukrainians everything they need to win—now,” the trio declared in a statement.
​  ​The Hill believes sending F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine will “not likely… be seen as more of an escalation.”

​  Moon of Alabama makes a comparison with the military preparations for Desert Storm in Iraq/Kuwait, and what NATO might be able to do in Ukraine.
​  ​Russia occupies some 87,000 square kilometer of Ukraine. The Desert Storm theater around Kuwait was five times smaller.
​  ​A hypothetical U.S. coalition of the size of Desert Storm could probably cross the Dnieper and cut of Crimea. But it could do little more than that. The Donetz and Luhansk oblasts and Crimea itself would still be in Russian hands.
But there are many reasons why no such operation will ever be planned and executed.
​  ​The U.S. no longer has a force of the size it committed to Desert Storm. Nor do its allies.
​  ​The U.S. was able to create air superiority in Iraq because it could fly from nearby Saudi airfields and from aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf. Air superiority in eastern Ukraine could only be achieved with the destruction of long range air-defenses within Russia. The next safe air fields the U.S. could use are in Poland and Romania. No U.S. aircraft carrier will dare to enter the Black Sea. U.S. fighter planes to not have the necessary reach for combat missions in eastern Ukraine.
​  ​The Ukrainian rail system is by now a mess. It is incapable of moving a large force from the west into east Ukraine.
​  ​Any attempt to move a large force through Ukraine would be subject to deep battle interdiction by Russian and Belorussian forces.
Iraqi equip
ment was badly maintained and Iraqi forces were barely trained. Russia has a well trained high tech army.

Accepting Consequences

 Grown Ups,

  We slept upstairs in the new house in the futon-bed I had just finished building, constructing it upstairs since the stairway is steep and has a small opening between the floors. It was kind of like an adventure, like sleeping in a tree-house. We had never spent a night there before. I was awake a lot, aware of the different sounds, how everything looks different at night with the lights off, and how the phase of building the project is closing. It is now a new living space. It reminds me of custom built homes and cool hotels in southern California in the late 1950s and early 1960s, triggering perceptions from my toddlerhood. 
I like that homebuilt-home" look and feel.

  I also get the feeling that a current stagnation in human society, human history, is about to give way to a different perceptual framework. A lot of people are very stressed as they attempt to hold to a conceptual framework which still worked fine in 2019.
  My Buddhist meditation group is meeting virtually on Zoom, as during COVID, with no in person meeting this month, which we had started back to once a month last summer. We always have a practice to hold-in-our-hearts those who may be going through extreme suffering. Members present the circumstances of friends and family, often with illness, death, injury or combinations thereof. There are so many people with newly diagnosed cancer lately, 3 reports today, one a 4 year old, one in her 20s, and so very many recent deaths, also, some from cancer. I practice compassion meditation. It's what I can do. Battling with conceptual constructs is no use. 
  One member today reported his battles with the demons of his youth, after he attended his 60th high school reunion in west Texas. He has made himself scarce from Sangha meetings in recent months, not wanting to harm the rest of us with what he is going through... 
He is in my meditations. No words more than that. "First do no harm."

  Are we any closer to midnight on the doomsday-clock today? Some say "yes". How do we constructively deal with that? Really, it's hard to do some practical prepping-things in addition to one's everyday necessities of living, when it all gets so surreal. We all struggle to pick some flotsam of truth or substance from the rushing river of lies, in which we all must wade. Sometimes we grab the wrong trash. Who's to blame?
  It seems like the global societal construct is at a juncture of crisis, and it is always possible to make it worse, but the doubling-down of western power and financial elites has gone on for so long that the next doubling-down move appears to be some kind of mass-slaughter-war. I hesitate to write "WW-3" because it seems to have begun, and is just not realized and defined for the forms it will take. 

  Jim Rickards makes the historical case that WW-3 has already begun, perhaps as early as 2014, though a lot of us could sign-on to 2020, and certainly to 2022. He figures we're at 1937 now. Who could really dispute it. Whither go we now?

  The Most Egregious Mistake, Alastair Crooke  The U.S. government is hostage to its financial hegemony in a way that is rarely fully understood...
​  ​It is the miscalculation of this era – one that may begin the collapse of dollar primacy, and therefore, global compliance with U.S. political demands, too. But its most grievous content is that it corners the U.S. into promoting dangerous Ukrainian escalation against Russia directly (i.e. Crimea).
​  Washington dares not – indeed cannot – yield on dollar primacy, the ultimate signifier for ‘American decline’. And so the U.S. government is hostage to its financial hegemony in a way that is rarely fully understood.
​  ​The Biden Team cannot withdraw its fantastical narrative of Russia’s imminent humiliation; they have bet the House on it.
​  ​Yet it has become an existential issue for the U.S. precisely because of this egregious initial miscalculation that has been subsequently levered-up into a preposterous narrative of a floundering, at any moment ‘collapsing’ Russia.
​  ​What then is this ‘Great Surprise’ – the almost completely unforeseen event of recent geo-politics that has so shaken U.S. expectations, and which takes the world to the precipice?
​  ​It is, in a word, Resilience.
​  ​The Resilience displayed by the Russian economy after the West had committed the entire weight of its financial resources to crushing Russia.​..​
..This shock of miscalculation is all the greater because the West disdainfully had taken Russia to be a backward economy, with a GDP on a par to that of Spain...
​..​Russia’s resilience, ​(French historian, Emmanuel)Todd attests, is due to the fact that it has a real economy of production. “War is the ultimate test of a political economy”, he notes. “It is the Great Revealer”.​..

  This is a situation where the management team in Washington can't really double-down again without ending the game of global economy. A new management team would be able to ride a different narrative into negotiations in the Ukraine war, also into the new multipolar world of trade and finance, where conjured dollars are no longer in special demand, but carry value based upon what American good​s​ they can purchase. Massive $US debt default is a physical and mathematical inevitability. How this will be managed needs to be decided cooperatively in the world, though that may be unrealistic until it is happening.
​  The failure of the COVID-vacinate-everybody-oops-excess-deaths-get-more-vaccines-and-neural-implants control-narrative to gain critical mass is somewhat heartening intellectually, but there is a world of hurt going on as a result. ​
  People are suffering, and those who are suffering the most don't seem ready to talk about the possibility that they, their family and friends were fooled and are now dying as a direct result. I have had a very hard time letting go of mistakes that I have endorsed fully in my life. It is inherently hard and it takes a long time. It's not just a quick non-specific admission before the church on Sunday, like I grew up with.

  Pepe Escobar says the Doomsday Clock is "90 seconds to midnight". What's that in dog years? What is my appropriate level of arousal? Can I store up electricity, gas and water with my bags of rice and beans? What will I do about plumbing? Should I pay my bills this month, or convert everything I can to cash, or gold, or ammo? This is the whole world facing this, but it's more of a shock to some of us.

A Russian Orthodox Priest's perspective about what the next western move against Russia may be.
​  ​For Russians, 2022 was simply a repeat of 1812 and 1941. The Third Great Patriotic War. The West doing its barbaric thing, as usual. The fact is that, though some historians deny it, history does repeat itself, simply because human pride, arrogance and hubris repeat themselves. German tanks with their black crosses trying to destroy Russia on the Ukrainian steppes? We Russians shrug our shoulders. We have seen it all before. The Anti-Russia of the Ukraine will simply never happen. Zelensky is on drugs and so is the Ukraine, addicted to Western transfusions of blood, money, mercenaries and arms​...
​..Some write that Russia can only win the war in the Ukraine as long as it can help the US to save face after its defeat and then the collapse of NATO and the EU. Remember Saigon? Remember Bush and his ‘Mission Accomplished’? (The world laughed at his farce, but plenty in the US were convinced by it). Remember Kabul? The US just left them and pretended to be in denial about them. Like the British at Dunkirk in 1940, who left their French allies in the lurch, they just ran away back to their island, declaring victory, though leaving lots of their equipment behind them. The Americans can also run away, saying: ‘Forget it. They are not worthy of us’.
​  ​Self-isolation would be such a good thing. Go back to the big island of Northern America.​..
..The only problem is that the US never admits failure, it never admits that it backed the wrong horse at huge expense to the US taxpayer. How will it get out of this one?

​  More on this particular fulcrum of escalation, which is a showdown, or a game of "chicken" where somebody else dies if you take too big a dare.​

​  ​Glazyev is all but saying for definite that Russia will enact Golden rouble 3.0. And we should be in no doubt that Russia is backing away from the west’s fiat monetary system and sees far higher gold prices expressed in its currencies. The only question is the speed with which it is moving in this direction.
​  ​What Glazyev did not mention in his Vedomosti article, other than his reference to western central banks not necessarily having possession of their gold reserves, would be the consequences for the dollar and other western fiat currencies of gold becoming the trade settlement medium throughout Asia, or of the rouble returning to a gold standard. Inevitably, holders of dollars and financial assets, totalling some $30 trillion, would make comparative value judgements not just for the dollar but also for their exposure to other fiat currencies. Not only would this cause private sector actors engaged in cross-border trade to re-evaluate their exposure to fiat currencies, but the whole system of currency reserves held by central banks could come under threat.
​  ​The indications are that Putin supports Glazyev’s thesis.

Undercover Footage of Pfizer Director Recorded by Project Veritas: Cold War Era Tactics Becoming New Journalistic Norm

Probably everybody will just forget about it and get another booster, right?

Finally some guarded and carefully worded comments from Pfizer: 
​  ​Pfizer late Jan. 28 responded to comments from a director at the company about exploring ways to mutate COVID-19 as a method to “preemptively develop new vaccines.”
​  ​“In the ongoing development of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Pfizer has not conducted gain of function or directed evolution research,” Pfizer said in a lengthy written statement after days of ignoring queries from The Epoch Times and other outlets.
​  ​Pfizer did say that it has conducted research “where the original SARS-CoV-2 virus has been used to express the spike protein from new variants of concern.”​  
(Creating chimeric viruses.)
​  ​“This work is undertaken once a new variant of concern has been identified by public health authorities. This research provides a way for us to rapidly assess the ability of an existing vaccine to induce antibodies that neutralize a newly identified variant of concern. We then make this data available through peer reviewed scientific journals and use it as one of the steps to determine whether a vaccine update is required,” the company added.

12 new safety signals showing devastating dangers from COVID shots, ​Daniel Horowitz
​ ​“During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill, and careful judgment required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.” ~Nuremberg Code #10
​  ​We’ve reached a critical mass of data points and safety signals on the COVID shots from a full two years of it circulating in 5.5 billion people. One must be worse than a conspiracy theorist to ignore them. One now has to be a “coincidence theorist” to chalk up this degree of human suffering that is in immediate need of redress to mere coincidence.

​  ​The latest bad news for vaccine advocates came from the British government this morning.
​  ​The Office of National Statistics said it had registered 17,381 deaths in England and Wales in the week ended Friday, January 13. That figure is about 20 percent more than the five-year average – and 30 percent more than longer-term averages – for the year’s second week.
​  ​Only about 650 of the deaths had Covid as an underlying cause, the government said, so most of the excess was not related to Covid.
​  ​The British data confirms recent trends all over Western Europe, including the Netherlands and Switzerland.
​  ​Most wealthy countries that relied on mRNA Covid shots and boosters had non-Covid deaths well above normal in 2022. The problem has worsened in recent weeks, in the wake of the fall Omicron booster campaigns.

Jordon Trishton Walker MD

 At Risk For Suicide,

  The Pfizer executive, Jordan Trishton Walker MD, and this does check out, though Google has scrubbed him for searches, is a real person, a real Pfizer executive, though he may be borrowed into that capacity from another company. Jordan did finish med school and left a Urology residency program for a good job offer. 
  Jordan was irate after being tricked on his "third date" with a man working for Project Veritas, and when confronted with this in a cafe, he became irate and combative (video). He was confused as to how to respond, called NYPD, who ended up restraining him. 
  Jordan may well have commitments to the US Department of Defense through his various employers. That is not completely clear yet. 
I would put Jordan on Suicide-Watch.  Luc in Oz has contributed several of these links. He was up all night (for us Americans)

  Tucker Carlson has a good and succinct synopsis:

  News Detectives has this video of the cafe confrontation and his distraught misbehavior when Jordan was confronted with the video evidence from his "date". His reasonable defense , "I'm a liar. I was lying".   

  Pharmacology executive turned forensic-investigator, Sasha Latypova (who in NOT SUICIDAL AT ALL) has a detailed assessment from yesterday, thinks that Jordan is real, and that big pharma does frequently hire people like this these days, and for practical reasons.
OMG! Pfizer is MUTATING COVID!!!​  ​Movie script where "Contagion" meets "Idiocracy"

​  Today's further corroboration by Sasha Latypova. It is still all checking out. Very good confirmatory statements by James O'Keefe of Project Veritas.

​  Who is Jordan Trishton Walker MD? This is a carefully confirmed and documented bio of this actual person. It all checks out.

It appears he will drop earlier plans to design a new commodity-linked trade currency because it has been superseded.

Positioning For Defeat


 How might one use a pawn on a chessboard to block a knight?  Maybe some other positional strategy would be a better analogy, but a western tank in Ukraine might be deprived of armor-piercing uranium ammunition by declaring uranium munitions to be "dirty bombs", which is true. They cause cancer and birth defects. That has been proven for decades.  These munitions are already in Ukraine for the Bradley Fighting Vehicles, according to one commenter. Thanks Christine.
​  ​Moscow will consider deliveries of Western-made munitions which contain uranium to Kiev as equivalent to the use of dirty nuclear bombs, says Konstantin Gavrilov, head of the Russian Delegation to the Negotiations on Military Security and Arms Control in Vienna.

  Project Veritas: Pfizer Exploring “Mutating” Covid-19 Virus Via ‘Directed Evolution’ To Continue Profiting From Vaccines (VIDEO)
​  ​Project Veritas on Wednesday night released explosive video of Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations, admitting the pharma giant is exploring ‘mutating’ Covid-19 via ‘directed evolution’ so the company can continue to profit off of vaccines...
..“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them​".

​  "Tactics without Strategy is the Noise Before Defeat", Sun Tzu
  Andrei at the Saker blog looks at the phases of supplying and resupplying the Ukrainian military, which have taken place up until now. This is my synopsis.
  The Ukrainian army began last February as the largest NATO-standard army in continental Europe, very well equipped, with reserves of all weapons and ammunition, and well dug in after 8 years of build-up by the west, specifically to fight and bleed Russia.​ 
  The first phase of the Russian attack sought to block the invasion of the Donbass and destroy the warmaking capability of the Ukrainian armed forces. Most of the planes, tanks, artillery and missiles of the Ukraine were chewed up, and Ukraine went to the negotiating table and came to an agreement. That was the first phase.
  The second phase began when Boris Johnson flew to Kiev to prevent the agreement to negotiate peace, and Ukraine was re-supplied with extensive "Warsaw Pact" weapons systems, held by NATO members, and the ammunition to feed them. This equipment directly replaced the systems that had been destroyed, and there were enough traned Ukrainian officers and men to operate the equipment. This was used through the summer, and expended in dramatic counterattacks on Russian positions, forcing Russians to give up land to save soldiers, while Ukraine sacrificed soldiers and equipment for land, gaining good PR in the west. Ukraine sacrificed its remaining and best trained soldiers, its best units. They are gone as cohesive fighting brigades.
  The third phase overlapped this, and consisted of the introduction of advanced NATO weapons systems, targeted by NATO, HIMARS and howitzers. These have been in short enough supply, and with limited counter-battery targeting, so they were not so much used against Russian artillery as against Donbass civilians, where casualties were markedly increased. Russian counter-battery targeting has been upgraded with acoustic targeting, passive devices which do not use radar, and are thereby invisible, cannot be targeted themselves.
  The fourth phase of this war is now entered. Ukraine has been serving as a NATO proxy, and has exhausted its military ranks and the Soviet era weaponry available in Europe. To use modern weaponry, which is NATO, will require trained personnel. Mercenaries willing to die in Ukraine are in short supply these days.
  The fiction has been that NATO is supplying Ukraine, but not at war with Russia. This fiction is rapidly degrading. The tripwire could be for NATO forces on active duty to enter Ukraine as combatants (not just tracking the donated supplies). Another tripwire would be for Russia to attack a NATO staging area in a NATO country, hosting pilots of F-16s in Ukrainian uniforms, for instance. Russia is unlikely to take that bait. Russia would target airplanes and vehicles in the war zone, and might be surprised to discover that they had contained NATO personnel.
  Western military can't prevail against Russia in this land war, whether Ukrainian or NATO troops are dying, but they do not have an exit strategy. 
This loss of face is expected to accelerate the decay of $US hegemony, which funds the imperial war machine.
(A change of management in Washington could facilitate a change in policy, which would be welcomed by realists in the Pentagon.)

  Not yet specifically addressed, but clearly implied, when talking about "striking Crimea" , especially the port of Sevastopol, are these heavier American intermediate range ballistic missiles, ground to ground, with a range of 190 miles , the MGM140-ATACMS. They are no longer in production. This would use up US supplies. Their main value would probably be to pose a threat, for a more favorable negotiating position in peace talks. If used against Russian military positions, they would cause damage and kill Russians, similarly to the longest range HIMARS missiles, but could not change the outcome of the war.

  Ukrainian Nationalism as a "Cold War Weapon" is explored here. Galicia, western Ukraine, was long a sovereign entity within the Austro Hungarian Empire, and chafed badly at being suborned to Poland after WW-1. Galicians had a resistance movement, the OUN, which wanted to restore pure-blooded "white-Rus" to power, and which collaborated with the German Nazis, though as second-class citizens. They were instrumental in genocides against Jews, and fought the Red Army, but were not granted statehood. As WW-2 approached German defeat, the Germans released Stepan Bandera and other leaders from their not-as-bad camps.  Mykola Lebed, another leader, was initially wanted by the Germans, then collaborated with the Germans, and especially with the CIA, after the war, coordinating the Ukrainian OUN resistance forces for the CIA, which were activated against the USSR in the early 1950s, then purged by the USSr in 1954.

Justin Trudeau Called A Tyrant As He Is Swarmed By Angry Mandate Protesters

  Monday 1/23/23 this geological paper was published, and the wording led to some confusion, and dramatic misinterpretations.  
Multidecadal variation of the Earth’s inner-core rotation​   ​

​  The confusion arose from the explanation of "rotation" of the core, as a differential to rotation of the crust of the planet. Timing the travel of earthquake shocks across the planet, through the core, was the method of investigation.​ The nature of the transmission in the 1960s seemed to imply that the core was creeping forward slightly faster than the crust, a miniscule creep. Later, in the 1990s, this seemed to have come to a standstill. the core seemed to be rotating synchronously with the earth's crust. There is speculation that it might be starting to rotate a little more slowly now or soon, might lag a little. There is a big liquid layer between the core and the crust, essentially an ocean of Vaseline. The core and the crust are not friction-coupled, but there is weak coupling through gravity and magnetism.

Intent To Harm


  Atypically, I will post a 31 minute video from the recent Doctors For COVID Ethics presentation, which opens with Pharmaceutical Industry expert Sasha Latypova proving in 20 minutes that the COVID "vaccines" have always been classified as "military countermeasures", and fall under exceptions to every known law. 
  All Pandemic management has been military, under the National Security Council. All of the "vaccine" countermeasures have been the property of the Department of Defense until injected in a person.
  Each of these "vaccine" injections has been a "prototype countermeasure", and is specifically not a pharmaceutical product, specifically not subject to any Good Manufacturing Practices laws, specifically not regulated or overseen in any way. One group of companies (like Pfizer & Moderna) provides "demonstrations" and another group of companies "manufactures", without any testing or oversight of their "products".
  Meryl Nass MD offers perspective from her decades of research into US military avoidance of laws regarding experimental vaccines, specifically dating to Gulf War Syndrome, which was autoimmune disease caused by secret and undisclosed experimental Anthrax vaccines, given to military service members during the first Gulf War, completely secretly, and in a setting where most recipients got an approved Anthrax vaccine, obscuring the trail, except for those who knew which member had gotten which product.
  Dr. Nass advocates mass resistance, since compliance of the vast majority of Americans is required for the power structure in this country to function. Other countries have been "more docile" as she puts it, and resistance has been spotty in the US. There are real laws and regulations on the books, which remain in effect. What has been done to circumvent them by declaring secret-emergencies is not legal. It is legal-fiction. This needs to be pursued relentlessly in the courts.
  Catherine Austin Fitts, was Director of Housing and Urban Development in the Reagan administration and has high level experience in investment banking. She has long followed the missing $US trillions announced by Donald Rumsfeld on September 10, 2001, which was being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon, until that specific area alone was destroyed the next morning. The destruction was either from a commercial jet that eft no parts, bodies or luggage, or from a cruise missile with a penetration warhead. Reports vary.
  Ms. Fitts points out that her experience in Washington is that when a program does not accomplish its stated objectives, but continues anyway, then whatever it is doing is the real objective.

Fake Winning


  Davos has lost its luster this year. The big opportunity to build-back-better with COVID-vaccine-passport, lockdowns, "transhumanism", and green-financial investment scenarios has been a flop, despite plenty of expensive PR and governmental buy-in across most of the planet, excepting Africa, and parts of South America, and rural Florida, Texas, etc. It not only failed to reach escape-velocity, before being pulled back to earth by the gravity of severe adverse events and death, exceeding lives-saved. 
  That just became impossible to hide as time went on. Lots of vaxxed and boosted believers are still onboard, and wear masks as they drive and walk their dogs...
A lot of people just never trusted the control-narrative enough to get the jabs. That 25% or so was more rural, more hands-on, and in the US and Africa, more black. American blacks are less trusting of new big medical things than other demographic groups. They remember how some of those movies have ended, like the Tuskegee syphilis study movie...
Other people, like myself, were working hard to keep up with the available treatment information and actual medical studies, reading preprints when they came out. We found that the government narratives were lagging available information by at least 2 months, and then they were taking the wrong side, the counter-factual side, then doubling down, and punishing those who tried to act for the public health. It seemed like they were just rabidly anti-Trump at first, but then it kept gathering steam, force and momentum What was happening?  We've now seen the answer to that. It was a control-narrative that had a whole lot of ground to cover to rope everybody into complying completely, getting the shots, staying locked-in, owning nothing and "being happy", and not thinking independently.
  Some people, "populists", kept thinking their own thoughts, making their own analysis, and doing whatever they felt was right, in direct opposition to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, explained here by Herr Schwab
  Those people, like myself, have not been "beaten", though there has been  no shortage of the attempt. Many of us have been fired/defunded and deplatformed, but we didn't learn from that. We just kept saying what we thought, and looking at each new thing that happened and saying what it looked like, and some of what we said was right. People who were mainly going along to keep their jobs and apartments noticed athletes dying on fields from heart attacks, and heard the rumors that it was from "the shots", and then they saw it again, then a kid at their kid's school got myocarditis, and maybe they had a bad reaction themselves.

The Davos establishment reveals whom it truly fears
This year’s World Economic Forum featured calls to “master the future” and blamed right-wing populists for the rising distrust in global elites

​  The battle for the control-narrative is on now. We see the message of vaccine-injury creeping into mainstream media. The most watched US football game ever got interrupted early by Damar Hamlin's sudden death, and cardiac-resuscitation on the field. Most people were just looking for some exciting TV escapism on the last day of their winter break holidays, and they didn't get it. They got slapped in the face by this instead. A doctor came on before Hamlin got to the hospital to assure that "this isn't from a vaccine or anything", which he kept repeating.​  "Don't think of an Elephant", right?
  If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. This control-narrative (Platonic "noble lie", which holds a society together) has fallen on its face. It doesn't look viable. Fewer people believe it, and more see it as a lie, and as murder. 
  What if a rival elite faction is preparing to ride a new, more-truthful control-narrative to power? It's the obvious thing to do, right?
What if Elon Musk taking over Twitter, and releasing the Twitter-files, is primarily an attack on existing power elites, as their control-narrative collapses?
Musk is impish, squirmy, tricky, and avoids getting pinned down. He is able to play the game of global power and politics because he can make dreams happen for power elites, and make them happen on a schedule and a budget, and be at least close to what was agreed. That's rare. 
Musk might well be less enabling of free-speech than he advertises, but he is certainly re-platforming some voices that current elites want to be silenced.

​  ​EU Technocrat Threatens Musk With "Sanctions" Unless He Stamps Out Free Speech On Twitter

​  Musk appears to have clearly stated a side in the vaccination-wars. He has done it with subtlety. It's unmistakable. It is a clear transition.
(So was Musk lying about getting the shots? Did he get saline? Was he given "special batches for VIPs". Was he ill-informed enough to get the standard products? What would I prefer to be the case? It's hard for me to decide.)
​  ​Musk responded to the post by revealing that he suffered “major side effects” after receiving his “second booster shot.”
“I had major side effects from my second booster shot,” Musk tweeted. “Felt like I was dying for several days"
“Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno.”
​  ​Musk then followed up by revealing that his “young” cousin, who is in “peak health,” suffered myocarditis.
Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart which is listed as a possible side effect of some coronavirus vaccines.
It can cause heart attacks and strokes and lead to death, according to Mayo Clinic.
​  ​“And my cousin, who is young & in peak health, had a serious case of myocarditis,” Musk said.
“Had to go to the hospital.”
​  ​In a third post, Musk explained it was not his choice to get the second booster but was a requirement to visit a Tesla location in Berlin, Germany.
“Was required to visit Tesla Giga Berlin. Not my choice,” he said

​Thanks Luc.  El Gato Malo has the story of how the "vaccine" approval for the UK was signed off by Matt Hancock, the Minister of Health. That's usual, and he said that they had gone through all of the evaluations to be approved for that:
"This is fantastic news! The MHRA, the fiercely independent regulator, has clinically authorized the vaccine for rollout."
​  ​However, a freedom of information request produces no paper trail of that. It appears that Mr Hancock acted completely without such ​expert approval​.
This sounds very different from:
“All the Covid vaccines and therapeutics authorisation decisions were taken by the Licensing Minister and were not delegated.”
Someone would seem to be telling porkie pies here.
Lay your bets…

Eleni sends this from Professor Paul Craig Roberts (simple, huh?)
The Scientific Facts Are In: The Covid Virus and Pandemic Are Man-Made. the MRNA “vaccine” Is More Deadly Than the Virus

  The US has sold Abrams tanks, with turbine engines and special transmissions (and internal ammo-loading that will take off an arm or a leg if you make a mistake) to Saudi Arabia, along with a 5 year training program for mechanics and tank crews, and an agreement to actually maintain those tanks with American mechanics. These are reportedly the most complicated main battle tanks in the world, and require years of experience to operate without breaking things and getting killed. They cannot be used this year by Ukrainian crews, not realistically, not effectively.
  They could be used and maintained by NATO crews, but then NATO crews would be going to war against Russia. They could be sent to the front as caskets for Ukrainians. They could sit somewhere doing nothing. (They might be sold to somebody else for cash.) They are only of use to support the false narrative that Ukraine can prevail against Russia in this war, and it won't fool anybody in Ukraine or Russia. German and French battle tanks are about the same story.

Battle Tanks For Ukraine Approved On Same Day Doomsday Clock Hits Closest Point To Midnight In History
​  ​The Biden administration has said it will send 30 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, in a significant breakthrough and escalation after weeks of debate, as well as division over the issue within the NATO alliance.
​  ​Politico's national security correspondents Alex Ward and Hans von der Burchard are further reporting that with the US ready to pull the trigger, Scholz's Germany has followed by approving Leopard 2 main battle tanks. Germany is planning to send 14 of its Leopard 2 A6 tanks to Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine Rocked By Corruption Scandal, Wave Of Top Officials Resign: Sports Cars, Mansions & Luxury Vacations As People Suffered
Moon of Alabama has some updates. The big push from the south by Russian forces did not begin. It was a head-fake.
​  ​I urge people to be careful with corruption allegations in Ukraine. These often come from the extralegal National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU). The bureau was setup in 2014, after the Maidan coup. It was created and controlled by the U.S. embassy. NABU was used in various power plays to remove people who the embassy disliked.​..
..There are many of such little reported power plays in Kiev with Zelensky moving more and more into a dictatorial role. Over time his position will become very lonely...
​..Prigozhin on the objectives of the actions of PMC "Wagner" in the Artemovsk region.
“The task of taking Bakhmut is to destroy the Ukrainian army in the vicinity of the city and prevent any offensive actions in any direction of the front. All of their combat-ready units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are sent to Bakhmut. And PMC "Wagner" destroys them, opening up operational opportunities in other areas"​...
..Previously, the Pentagon had ruled out providing the tanks to Ukraine, saying they were too complicated for the Ukrainians to maintain and operate. But White House and State Department officials were described as being more open to providing Abrams to break the diplomatic logjam holding up Leopard deliveries.
​  ​U.S. Joint Chiefs Chair Milley and Defense Secretary Austin have been against any tank delivery. They are afraid of the consequences of this steady mission creep. The Biden administration steadily blows through each of its own red lines.​..
​ ..Team Biden thus has painted the U.S. into a tight Ukraine ‘corner’. But at this stage – realistically – what can the White House do? It cannot withdraw the narrative of Russia’s ‘coming humiliation’ and defeat. They cannot let the narrative go because it has become an existential component to save what it can of the ‘Ponzi’. To admit that Russia ‘has won’ would be akin to saying that the ‘Ponzi’ will have to ‘close the fund’ to further withdrawals (just as Nixon did in 1971, when he shut withdrawals from the Gold window).

  ​I keep seeing analysis that Russia will massively strike Ukraine from one, two or three directions, and how it might best be done, but there is often the proviso that they are currently chewing up Ukrainian soldiers and western military machines at a low cost to Russia, except  artillery, of which they have no shortage. Russian forces continue to build, and to increase their supplies of weapons and material.
  As long as they do this, the US/NATO can maintain some form of the fiction that Russia is suffering terrible losses, can barely move forward, and is going to be counter-attacked again in the spring, when Ukraine receives all those western weapons.
  Maybe Russia will just keep letting the west pay these prices to be slowly chewed up in the meat grinder of Russian artillery.

Lagging Perceptions

 Consciously Aware,

  We are seeing the mainstream media reposition to get ahead of the wave of public perception, as COVID-19 "vaccine" products are increasingly known to be killing and disabling people of all ages, including children and babies. Media need to re-establish credibility, and they will need to move their messaging closer to the truth until they are seen as useful sources of information by most people. This is happening now, ramping up. It is certain that social media is monitoring the response of the American public.

How the CDC Became the Speech Police
Secret internal Facebook emails reveal the feds' campaign to pressure social media companies into banning COVID "misinformation."

​  Elon Musk's father is quite worried that his son is making the kinds of enemies who get rid of problem-people, and he is doing that, but it looks to me like this is the new-replacement-policy, so he will be protected as he does so.​

  Paul Craig Roberts, a Reagan Administration cold-warrior, who remembers the previous incarnation of the United States, the one President Eisenhower saw slipping away already, discusses how the CIA gets rid of presidents. (It appears to me that "Joe Biden" is positioned to take-the-fall for COVID and Ukraine, maybe even "losing to China", but this does not make him "troublesome", just a convenient scapegoat. The depths of his corruption will be left unexamined.)
​  ​How Troublesome Presidents Are Disposed of
​  ​President John F. Kennedy was murdered by the CIA and US Joint Chiefs of Staff once he realized that the government he headed was not the real government.  His predecessor President Eisenhower, a 5-star general, warned about the threat to democratic government posed by the military/industrial complex.  President Kennedy intended to do something about it while the president still had some power, but he was struck down before he could do more than fire CIA Director Allen Dulles and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Lyman Lemnitzer.  President Kennedy wasn’t able to get rid of General Lemnitzer, who transitioned to Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. Both Dulles and Lemnitzer are suspected of directing the plot against Kennedy’s life.
​  ​President Nixon was the best informed and best respected abroad president of any in US history.  He kept in touch with foreign leaders and was well informed about historical and current events.  But he also, like Kennedy and Trump, over estimated the power of the president.

​  Moon of Alabama points out that Ukraine sending reinforcements to bolster (temporarily) the main Ukrainian defensive line in Bakhmut, has removed their soldiers from other positions along the long front with Russia. Russian forces are now testing Ukrainian defenses in the south, and are likely to also do this in the north soon, while still incessantly shelling the suffering Ukrainian draftees in Bakhmut. (Tanks won't change this. A whole new NATO air-force would massively escalate the war.)
​  ​It is unlikely that any reserves he currently has are equipped, trained and battle ready. They will be too small to stop a fully mechanized Russian attack through the rather sparsely settled southwest of Donetzk province.
​  ​The aim of the Russian thrust in the south will not be to take cities like Zaporiziha. The aim is to bring the main transport routes, railways and roads, from west-Ukraine to the front in east Ukraine under Russian artillery fire. This will prevent not only the re-supply for the Ukrainian troops on the eastern front but also their exit from the front line. A 100 kilometer (60 miles) thrust to the north would mostly do that. A complementary thrust from the north towards south, which may or may not be coming, would finally close the cauldron.

​  ​Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump​, Big Serge  ​(Gradually, and then Suddenly​)  
​  ​It has gradually become apparent that Russia is committed to a positional attritional war, as this maximizes the asymmetry of their advantage in ranged fires. There is an ongoing degradation of Ukraine’s warmaking ability which is allowing Russia to patiently maintain the current tempo, while it organizes its newly mobilized forces for offensive action in the coming year, setting the stage for cascading and unsustainable Ukrainian losses.​..
  [About changes in power structure in general.]
​..​Trotsky famously turned up at the foreign affairs ministry building one morning and simply announced that he was the new Foreign Minister. The employees laughed at him - who was he? how did he presume to be in charge? - but for Trotsky the point was to insinuate himself on a Schelling point. In the state of anarchy that began to spread in Russia, people naturally look for some obvious focal point of authority, and the Bolsheviks had cleverly positioned themselves as such by claiming control over the bureaucratic offices and titles. On the other side of the civil conflict, political opposition to the Bolsheviks clustered around Tsarist army officers, because they too were Schelling points, in that they already had titles and position within an existing hierarchy.
​  ​All of this is to say that in the event of a coup or state collapse, new governments are virtually never formed sui generis - they always arise from preexisting institutions and hierarchies. Why, when the Soviet Union fell, did political authority devolve to the Republics? Because these Republics were Schelling points - branches that one can grab for safety in a chaotic river.

​  This is a desperate and unsustainable ploy, whether it is a fake (probably) or extreme hubris (apparently), or both.

​  ​Who is Behind the Great Food Reset?

​  ​Venezuela’s Seed Law Should be a Global Model
​  ​For peasant farmers, the battle over seed rights is critical to their livelihoods
​  ​The imposition of patented transgenic seeds onto rural communities has had a catastrophic impact on human livelihoods and biodiversity protection. In many countries, seeds have traditionally been the collective property of farmers—however, these farmers’ right to control their own seed supply is being attacked by corporate forces which have captured capitalist states around the world.
​  ​In 2010, the government of Colombia adopted Law 970 as part of a free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States government. Under the terms of the FTA, Bogotá gave legal monopoly to seeds produced by US and European corporations and forced Colombian farmers to only use certified seeds manufactured by these companies. Farmers who were caught saving seeds or planting unregistered seeds were subject to fines or jail time. These laws were a condition for Washington to agree to the FTA.
​  ​Law 970 not only precipitated a rise in food production prices, since farmers were forced to purchase seeds from companies like Monsanto rather than use communally shared seeds; it also caused the Colombian state to destroy food products grown from saved seeds. This occurred in 2011 in towns like Campo Alegre, where Colombian authorities raided the warehouse and trucks of rice farmers and destroyed 70 tonnes of rice that was not produced in accordance with Law 970.

Propaganda Experts

 Not Born Yesterday,

​  ​Guy Debord’s Warning of “The Role of the Expert”: A Philosophical Perspective on the Rise of Fact-Checking​   (This essay is profound.)
​  ​When it comes to “fact-checks” and “experts”, Debord is clear: in a society subjugated by the economy, where “everything that was once directly lived has faded into representation,” such professionals do not exist to provide us the truth — they exist to serve the state and media through lies and distortions spun into what appears as true. If the “experts” lose influence, it will be because the public has learned and can articulate that their job is to systematically lie.

​  Art Berman, an "oil man's oil man" kind of "expert":
​  The good news is that U.S. oil production has recovered to pre-pandemic levels. The bad news is that only 60% of it is really oil.
U.S. oil production exceeded the 2020 pre-pandemic peak of 20.3 mmb/d in October and November of 2022 (Figure 1). Unfortunately, less than 60% of U.S. “oil” production is really oil. The rest is non-petroleum and comes from natural gas, corn & refinery gain.

  China's President Xi visit with Saudi and GCC leaders marked the birth of the petroyuan and a leap in China’s growing encumbrance of OPEC+’s oil and gas reserves: that's because with the China-GCC Summit, "China can now claim to have built a 'special relationship' not only with the '+' sign in OPEC+ (Russia), but with Iran and all of OPEC+." ...
​..​Saudi Arabia is open to discussions about trade in currencies other than the US dollar, according to the kingdom’s finance minister.
​  ​“There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it is in the US dollar, whether it is the euro, whether it is the Saudi riyal,” Mohammed Al-Jadaan told Bloomberg TV on Tuesday in an interview in Davos.
​  “I don’t think we are waving away or ruling out any discussion that will help improve the trade around the world,” Al-Jadaan said.
And echoing Poszar's comments above, Al-Jadaan appeared to confirm The Kingdom's goal seeking to strengthen its relationship with crucial trade partners, most notably China:
  "​We enjoy a very strategic relationship with China and we enjoy that same strategic relationship with other nations including the US and we want to develop that with Europe and other countries who are willing and able to work with us,” Al-Jadaan said.

‘Fragmented world’ sleepwalks into World War III, Pepe Escobar, with Davos insights 
  ​Emmanuel Todd was not at Davos. But it was the French anthropologist, historian, demographer and geopolitical analyst who ended up ruffling all the appropriate feathers across the collective West these past few days with a fascinating anthropological object: a reality-based interview...
​..​A new World War is on: By “switching from a limited territorial war to a global economic clash, between the collective West on one side and Russia linked to China on the other side, this became a World War”.​..
​..​Todd’s major give away is a killer: “The resistance of Russia’s economy is leading the imperial American system to the precipice. Nobody had foreseen that the Russian economy would hold facing NATO’s ‘economic power’”.​..​
​..​Consequently, “monetary and financial American controls over the world may collapse, and with them the possibility for the US of financing for nothing their enormous trade deficit”.
  ​And that’s why “we are in an endless war, in a clash where the conclusion is the collapse of one or the other.”
​  ​On China, Todd might sound like a more pugnacious version of Liu He at Davos: “That’s the fundamental dilemma of the American economy: it cannot face Chinese competition without importing qualified Chinese work force.”

​  ​Game-Changing Russia, ​By Batiushka​  (a Russian Orthodox Priest)
 ​ ​The Illusions that we must be like the West, that the West is our model, are gone. The West contemptuously turned up its nose at primitive and barbaric Russia, so Russia embraced China and the rest of the Non-Western world, and liked it.
​  ​What is clear, however, is that Russians want some things to remain from the past. The first thing is that they do not want any treacherous oligarchs/ aristocrats, but want a meritocratic elite that patriotically serves the nation rather than itself. They also want a fair social contract, greater equality between rich and poor, with a political system that is accountable and not corrupt, they want social justice, free education and healthcare, decent pensions, a working infrastructure and reasonable housing.
​  ​And they want protection for Russians outside Russia, Belarus and Malorossija (the New Ukraine). The New Russia is the only country that is leading the struggle for liberation from the Western Yoke, its foreign policy is leading the global majority of Non-Western countries.

​  This is a long and detailed inventory of what is being burned-up in the Ukraine War, first and foremost, Ukrainian soldiers, who are almost all new green recruits now, without years of expertise operating artillery, tanks or weapons-systems of any kind.​ Russia has 15,000 main battle tanks, and Germany and the UK each possess a few hundred main battle tanks, which need frequent repairs by specialized technicians, more than every 1000 miles, under peacetime training conditions. The summary is that NATO countries are dribbling-in precious and delicate weapons systems, some of which are very good when they work, in small quantities, over a period of years, which need trained specialists and special parts, but are going to green draftees, who are pitted against the best ground-forces in the world today. 
  The NATO propaganda-war is using up human lives and expensive equipment. It is a cost being paid solely to maintain a false narrative that Ukraine may defeat Russia.
​  ​Tanks for Nothing: NATO Keeps On Demilitarising Itself in Ukraine

​  ​Meanwhile, just as Putin is vowing to see through the military campaign until 'victory' is achieved, Washington too remains entrenched in its position.
On Tuesday Secretary of State Antony Blinken underscored that peace with Russia is unacceptable. Blinken said the following, according to a press readout:
"...but I think you only have to look at Putin’s own words in a recent conversation with President Erdoğan of Türkiye in which he says unless and until Ukraine accepts the new territorial realities, as he put it, there’s nothing to negotiate. [...] That of course is in and of itself a nonstarter."
"The fastest way to bring this war to a just and durable end, to get to diplomacy, to get to a negotiation, is to give Ukraine a strong hand on the battlefield. That’s exactly what we’re doing," Blinken continued.

​  ​US warming up to prospect of helping Ukraine target Crimean Peninsula​  
  ​The Biden administration is finally starting to concede that Ukraine may need the power to strike the Russian sanctuary, even if such a move increases the risk of escalation, according to several U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive debate. Crimea, between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, is home to tens of thousands of dug-in Russian troops and numerous Russian military bases.
​  ​The moderation in position has come about as the Biden administration has come to believe that if the Ukrainian military can show Russia that its control of Crimea can be threatened, that would strengthen Ukraine’s position in any future negotiations. In addition, fears that the Kremlin would retaliate using a tactical nuclear weapon have dimmed, U.S. officials and experts said — although they cautioned that the risk remained.​                        ​​ ​
(Uh, how about strategic nuclear weapons, guys?)​  

​  ​Outspoken former Russian president and current deputy chairman of the security council Dmitry Medvedev has issued his latest stark warning to the West on Thursday, saying that if Russia is on the brink of defeat, nuclear war is likely to follow. He made the comments in a post on the Telegram messaging app. "The defeat of a nuclear power in a conventional war may trigger a nuclear war," he began.
​ ​"Nuclear powers have never lost major conflicts on which their fate depends," the former president, who in prior years had actually been seen as more dovish when compared to Putin, added. Medvedev's comments came in reaction to news of a major meeting of Western defense leaders set for Friday at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

  One of the written-up complaints against me at the clinic, before I was fired for COVID non-vaccination, was that I was interfering with obstetrical-care by advising all pregnant women and women of childbearing potential against COVID "vaccination". 

Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH  Early in 2021 the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology accepted an undisclosed amount of money from the US government (HHS WH) as part of the COVID-19 Community Corps Program. From that point forward, ACOG broke with traditional practice on experimental and and novel therapies being contraindicated, and with federal dollars in hand, moved to a wholesale endorsement of COVID-19 vaccination with no assurances on short or long-term safety.   Throughout the campaign, enthusiasm for vaccination was tepid among gravid women with <20% at any time having accepted a vaccine. However, the sharpest decline in rates of uptake occurred in the gravid and by summer of 2022, fewer than 2% were getting vaccinated...
..In 2021, McCullough and Stricker published that because of the known dangerous mechanism of action of COVID-19 vaccination and the lack of any assurances on maternal-fetal safety, that all of the products are considered pregnancy category X which means they should not be used.This message got out to the community and rates of vaccination have progressively winnowed. As we sit here today, we should understand that ACOG and the OB/GYN community is compromised and thereby putting the maternal-fetal health of women at risk by promoting COVID-19 vaccination. Under no circumstances should a woman of childbearing potential or gravid should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. It is absolutely contraindicated.  

  Steve Kirsch has this: 
 In the October 2022 version of the FAA Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, the FAA quietly widened the EKG parameters beyond the normal range (from a PR max of .2 to unlimited). And they didn’t widen the range by a little. They widened it by a lot. It was done after the vaccine rollout.
  This is extraordinary. They did it hoping nobody would notice. It worked for a while. Nobody caught it.
  But you can’t hide these things for long.
  This is a tacit admission from the US government that the COVID vaccine has damaged the hearts of our pilots. Not just a few pilots. A lot of pilots and a lot of damage.

​  ​Will ​Cardiologist ​Aseem Malhotra’s Appearance Be the BBC’s Most Viewed Programme of 2023?​ 
  ​Well, courtesy of Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, Dr. Aseem Malhotra may just have provided 2023’s biggest TV moment. As I write this, the seven minute clip of him being interviewed on a BBC news show on January 14th passed 14.8 million views.

If you were the BBC’s Head of Programmes wouldn’t you think: “Wow, we’ve had 14.8 million views, there’s a programme in this?”

..This means that the observed rate of stroke is 10X normal after the shot...
​..​The VAERS data makes it OBVIOUS
Here’s a simple search that took me all of 30 seconds to do. I searched ALL vaccines for ischaemic stroke and look what I found. A signal. A big signal! It jumps off the page. You can’t miss it if you are looking!
Mechanism of action
The PEG enables the LNP to cross the blood brain barrier. There, the vaccine causes both clotting and inflammation. This is well know.
The safety signal in VAERS and VSD: The final nail in the coffin
And finally, we have official CDC safety signals that were triggered in both VAERS and VSD.
That’s the final nail in the coffin

​  Tucker Carlson tells a simple and compelling story about President Richard Nixon, and those 4 out of 5 Watergate burglars who were on the CIA payroll when they did the burglary, including how America got the only president ever who was completely unelected, Gerald Ford., who had been on the Warren Commission.
