Invisible Peace Rally


  I attended the invisible peace rally yesterday afternoon at the Texas Capital. Don't bother to Google it. It's not there. It wasn't there yesterday when I Googled it. I rode my bike 15 miles as sort of an act of faith. There were about 35 people, counting the band and speakers. They were playing "We Can Work It Out" by the Beatles when I rode up. I leaned my bike on a lamp post and started smiling and shooting peace signs at drivers coming from laft and right on 11th St. and straight up Congress avenue to turn either way, and all the pedestrians and bicyclists. I did get eye contact with a few pedestrians, and a few honks from passing drivers.
  My friend, Phil recruited me the night before last; said he would likely go to it, sponsored by the Texas Libertarian Party, but even the state information on such events had nothing. Maybe that's the Libertarian way, but Phil couldn't locate the original announcement he had seen, and it did not exist on the non-Google search engine he tried, either. There was no media, none at all, not a one, not a camera.
  I think I recognized some of the other participants from decades past. I've been going to these things since the 1970s. So have they. I talked to a couple of participants who looked familiar. The guy said he'd been coming since about 1965. He was my senior. The oldish lady (ack, My Age!) had a tie-dye tank top and started shooting peace signs when she saw me doing it. I like her. She's OK. My friend, Phil introduced me to a couple of friends of his, clearlyy also "boomers".   The lady got me to man the big sign after about an hour, so I did the "attract attention" thing with it as the lanes of oncoming traffic changed, smiling, moving it up and down, and side to side.
  The speakers sounded like they were from the 1970s, too. I did not get the impression that any of them saw our current situation as different. They advocated voting and making government listen to the people, listen to the majority, when we got to be the majority again... One guy was a classic Mexican-American Marxist, a chip off that old block. He had been Jill Stein's schedule guy in 2016 until they parted ways. She wanted to cancle a rally in Georgia to be on CNN. She was "letting the people down after they had worked hard for the event". 
  How could I not like this guy? However, when I talked about the class war against the people of the world, through the slow poisoning with COVID-"vaccines" and the massive increase in excess deaths, he came back with, "we don't even need to talk about that, look at the massive underfunding of public health". 
  I persisted. He quickly walked away. "Daddy is bad, but Daddy isn't That Bad."
  So I was manning the sign and eye-contacting motorists and pedestrians when Jenny called, about 4:30 PM, saying she was done at her school library for the day. That was my cue to find somebody else to hold or prop up the big sign I spotted a guy in his early 40s, the youngest guy there, and asked him to man the sign, as I had to ride over and meet my wife, who was finishing work.. He somewhat reluctantly accepted the honor (seeming uncertain of protest-etiquette expectations, perhaps) and asked if I was coming back. "No", I said, but explained how somebody had handed the sign to me and I passed it to him, "It's not that complicated". I let the lady who handed me the sign know. She called it "her sign", after all. 
  I rode 3 miles through the UT campus, where I had once been a student in the 1970s and early 80s. A lot of it looks kind of the same, but the vibe is really diifferent, corporate-globalist. Peace protesters are few, old, and invisible now.

The defeat of Ukraine does not mean the end of the war , ​by Thierry Meyssan​    ​Thanks Eleni.​
   In the face of the resistance that Moscow has encountered in enforcing Security Council Resolution 2202 (Implementation of Mi​n​sk Agreements), President Putin has declared that he still has to liberate Odessa and join Transnistria. This is precisely what the Pentagon is looking for since 2019. Already, it is preparing a second round in Moldova. Not because it wants to defend the Ukrainians, then the Moldovans, but because it intends to strip its own allies.​ 

World War III Appears Imminent as the Establishment Attempts to Sweep Vaccine Genocide Under the Rug​ 
 ​“Why is our administration insanely running into a World War III situation?” ​(Financial market expert, Ed) Dowd asked. He answered, “And I suspect — I’m a cynical guy — that World War III solves a lot of issues: solves the sovereign debt crisis and solves the vaccine murder that’s gone on — wipes a bunch of stuff off the map — and directs everyone’s attention to a world war.”
​  ​Edward expressed that he hopes he’s wrong, but that scenario is “definitely in play. And the capital markets may be starting to sniff this out.”
​  ​He elaborates. “The U.S. Dollar in a World War III situation would go up quite a bit. And the dollar, the DXY, the basket of currencies, bottomed about two weeks ago and is starting to go up. We think it put in a very significant bottom.”

​  Remember when we all said, "naw, I've already had that"? 
CDC funded study showed that natural immunity was tremendously better at avoiding Omicron infection last year than any of the "vaccines".​

Contrary to what it claims, US massively imports Russian oil
  ​Washington is fully aware that Moscow has not invaded Ukraine, but is there chiefly to enforce Security Council resolution 2202. All the Atlanticist propaganda accusing Russia of the most egregious crimes is, therefore, not aimed at mobilizing Western forces against it, but at manipulating the Europeans into accepting an economic recession imposed in the spirit of the 1992 Pentagon policy paper masterminded by Paul Wolfowitz (photo) [2]. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his deputy Victoria Nuland belong to the same ideological group as Paul Wolfowitz [3].
​  ​At the time, he wrote: "Although the United States supports the project of European integration, we must seek to prevent the emergence of European-only security arrangements which would undermine NATO, and in particular its military integrated command structure." For the Pentagon, the main enemy is not Russia, but an independent Europe.​     [But Russia can be an an emy, too, of course. Thanks again, Eleni]​

​  The biggest arms cache in Europe is in Transnistria, a semi-autonomous part of Moldova, bordering Ukraine, left over from the USSR, the kind of ammo that eastern Europe knows how to use.​ There are about 1000 Russian soldiers guarding the base. Russia has no land or sea supply route to Moldova.
​  ​Ukraine now a ‘battle of logistics’ – NATO chief​    Russia is currently winning the race for ammunition, Jens Stoltenberg has said
 ​Stoltenberg has repeatedly called on NATO members to step up their ammunition production to close the gap, as have other Western leaders. The EU’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, said on Sunday that Ukraine’s backers need to resolve the ammunition shortage within “a matter of weeks” if Kiev is to have any chance of success on the battlefield.
​  ​Since last fall, the conflict in Ukraine has “moved into a war of attrition,” Stoltenberg said, adding that a “war of attrition is a battle of logistics; as in how do you get enough stuff – materiel, spare parts, ammunition, fuel – to the front lines.”
​  ​While Stoltenberg was clear about the need for NATO to step up arms production, he was vague about how the US-led alliance wants the conflict to end. He told Amanpour that “nobody knows how and when this war will end,” and that it will “maybe” be resolved at the negotiating table.

  What is up Nuland's sleeve, or is this just a propaganda statement for the folks back home?
The US stopped allowing Russian inspections in 2020, and Russia has followed suit.  The New START treaty is unmonitored, hence unenforceable, and "on hold".
​  ​The United States is ready to start talks with Russia on the New START nuclear arms control treaty "tomorrow" if Moscow is prepared for this, US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland said in an interview with TASS.
​  ​"We’re ready to do it tomorrow if the Russian Federation is ready. And we’re also ready to allow inspections," the diplomat said, answering a question if Washington is prepared for talks without preconditions and accusations.
​  ​Nuland once again stated that the US views the treaty’s suspension as an irresponsible move. "The US and Moscow have responsibilities to the world to keep our nuclear arsenal safe and secure, and we should do our jobs," Nuland said.

  ​This essay is unduly long, but the conclusion will do. I don't think it answers the question in the title. I think we must open to spirit, and be guided that way, in alliance with all of the other people guided by spirit.​ I went to the invisible peace rally yesterday, and I saw what I saw.
We Are Being Smashed Politically, Economically, Medically and Technologically by the Elite’s ‘Great Reset’: Why? How Do We Fight Back Effectively?
​  Conclusion: We are currently living in the final phase of a 5,000 year effort to impose total control over the human population. There are many reasons why it has reached this point. Some key reasons are explained above. And despite the comfortable delusion that the most obvious and onerous restrictions that we have experienced over the past three years have temporarily receded, the fact remains that a vast range of political, economic, medical and technological measures are being implemented as you read these words and we have only just ended the first round of what must be, if we are to be successful, a protracted fight.
  In essence, what we do between now and 2030 will determine the fate of humanity. If we can mobilize enough people to resist strategically, we will succeed. But there is little sign of that so far.
  Understanding how power works in the world system as well as who, precisely, is driving what is happening, what they are doing, why, and how they are doing it are crucial prerequisites for developing an effective strategy to resist the current Elite program to kill off a substantial proportion of humanity, enslave those left alive in a technocratic prison, enclose the Commons forever and consolidate all wealth in Elite hands.
  It is the failure to understand these crucial points that accounts for the ineffective ‘resistance’ that has characterized the past three years.
  And this is complicated by the fact that fear makes most people unable to learn either from their own failed experience or to seriously investigate what is happening and how to resist it most effectively. So they fearfully repeat what is familiar, without even asking if it has worked in the past.
  So each passing day we still witness fruitless attempts to convince one elite agent or another – a politician, a judge, a corporate media executive… – to take action that will turn the tide in our favour. But none of these individuals can help us.

  1. I was in Austin training as an Air Force crew chief in 1979. Loved the city and the people there. Went on to be stationed in Zaragoza Spain after that. Time flies faster than an SR-71 Blackbird jet.
