Tide Going Out


​  Thanks Christine. Russia builds more military strength and capability every day that it​ continues the "Special Military Operation" at the current restrained pace, not using Russian regular-army forces in infantry-attacks. Ammunition is not running out. New and updated military equipment is put into use, to good effect.   Ukraine has reportedly lost 257,000 men, as reported to Def.Sec. Lloyd Austin recently. They are drafting 16 year olds. They are grinding up NATO equipment that NATO cannot replace this year. Russia is prepared to respond to any form of western escalation in kind. Russia says uranium munitions are "dirty bomb" equivalents, a form of nuclear first-strike, if used against Russia.

  ​As the head of the Russian arms-control delegation in Vienna, Konstantin Gavrilov, says: “If Washington and NATO countries provide Kyiv with weapons for striking against the cities deep inside the Russian territory and for attempting to seize our constitutionally affirmed territories, it would force Moscow to undertake harsh retaliatory actions…Do not say that we did not warn you.”
​  ​Note well that Putin has now suggested changing Russia’s military doctrine on nuclear-weapons use to mirror the more permissive policy of the United States:
​  ​Vladimir Putin said Russia may consider formally adding the possibility of a preventive nuclear first strike to disarm an opponent to its military doctrine…[P]erhaps we should think about using the approaches of our American partners,” he said, citing what he called US strategies to use high-accuracy missiles for a preventive strike.
​  ​Also note that Russia works with a broad definition of “nuclear weapons.” Regarding depleted-uranium munitions that are regularly used by Leopards, Abrams, and Bradleys, Gavrilov stated: “If Kyiv were to be supplied with such munitions for the use in Western heavy military hardware, we would regard it as the use of ‘dirty nuclear bombs’ against Russia, with all the consequences that entails.” So, even under Russia’s more restrictive doctrine, tanks firing depleted-uranium munitions would be considered a first use of nuclear weapons.
​  ​I’m afraid there will be more weapons delivered and more red lines drawn and crossed. Russia will show it is not afraid, but confident of its ability, to respond to any escalation, and the US/NATO will be faced with accepting defeat or using nuclear weapons.​  
[and then facing same-day defeat]

​  Seymour Hersh, Thanks VV. 
  US Navy divers planted C4 explosive charges on the pipelines, to be detonated by a signal from a sonar buoy when the order was given by "President Biden".
How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline
The New York Times called it a “mystery,” but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now

​  The US needs to drop a whole lot of baggage in order to change course in almost every endeavor. (If only some politicians could be blamed and replaced.)
​  ​US lacks unity before modern challenges, Henry Kissinger believes​    [Henry, do you mean Ron DeSantis? Help us out, here.]
​  ​February 7. /TASS/. The US lacks unity inside the country amid modern challenges, Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said during the event, dedicated to the 112th anniversary of the birth of former US President Ronald Reagan.
​  ​"Today we again suffer from domestic division and international disorder about arguments about who we are and what we stand for. We find it difficult to muster the domestic cohesion necessary to face the challenges ahead of us," Kissinger said.​..
.."Each of these present developments requires a combination of strength and conciliation," Kissinger said, adding that Reagan "understood better than anyone how to integrate the elements of power and the elements of conciliation."

  "Joe Biden's" State of the Union address is condensed here. It proposes spending borrowed money to help people cope with the current economic structure, which is impoverishing them, as they cannot pay bills with what they make and must borrow money. It does not propose changing the system to something less parasitic. "President Biden" hints at raising taxes. He assumes that the system will keep working as-configured, which it won't. 
  I'm interested in some of his public health proposals towards the end. Where IS all that cancer coming from these days? What DO you propose to fund in the way of "cancer research"? More mRNA platform "innovations"?
​  ​More than 1 million Americans have lost their lives to COVID. We still need to monitor dozens of variants and support new vaccines and treatments. So Congress needs to fund these efforts and keep America safe.​.. [same widely-discounted lie]​ ​...​
​  ​We also need more first responders and other professionals to address growing mental health and substance abuse challenges.[More EMS. More Federal $]​
​  ​Let’s do more on mental health, especially for our children. When millions of young people are struggling with bullying, violence, trauma, we owe them greater access to mental health care at school.[More federal $ for counseling services. Counselors support narratives of their funding source.]​
​  ​No one should be homeless in this country, especially not those who served it.​  [FEMA homeless camps?]​
​  ​Let’s end cancer as we know it and cure some cancers once and for all.[Ignore COVID mRNA "vaccines" as cause of increase in cancers, through immuno-suppression.]​

  CDC Data confirms COVID Vaccination knocks up to 24 years off a Man’s life   Thanks Luc.
​  The long-term consequences of Covid-19 vaccination are now being realised…
  A year ago, doubly vaccinated Australians were 10.72x more likely to catch Omicron than the unvaxxed. Now they are 20x more likely and the triply or more vaxxed are 35x more likely, as the latest NSW Health stats show (see below).
  Meanwhile, the latest Cleveland Clinic Data and the latest US data analysed by Josh Stirling, founder of Insurance Collaboration to Save Livess and former #1 ranked Insurance Analyst, shows a really really disturbing trend.
  The damage to health caused by each vaccine dose does not lessen over time. It continues indefinitely.
  In fact, CDC All-Cause Mortality data show that each vaccine dose increased mortality by 7% in the year 2022 compared to the mortality in year 2021.
  So if you have had 5 doses then you were 35% more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021. If you have had one dose then you were 7% more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021. If you are unvaxxed then you were no more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021.

​  Meryl Nass MD sent this:  Amendments to WHO’s International Health Regulations: An Annotated Guide , David Bell
​..​Many nations have developed checks and balances over centuries, based on an understanding of fundamental values, designed specifically to avoid the sort of situation we now see arising, where one group is law unto itself can arbitrarily remove and control the freedom of others. Free media developed as a further safeguard, based around principles of freedom of expression and an equal right to be heard. These values are necessary for democracy and equality to exist, just as it is necessary to remove them in order to introduce totalitarianism and a structure based on inequality. The proposed amendments to the IHR set out explicitly to do this.
​  ​The proposed new powers sought by the WHO, and the pandemic preparedness industry being built around it, are not hidden. The only subterfuge is the farcical approach of media and politicians in many nations who seem to pretend they are not proposed, or do not, if implemented, fundamentally change the nature of the relationship between people and centralized non-State powers. The people who will become subject to these powers, and the politicians who are on track to cede them, should start paying attention. We must all decide whether we wish to cede so easily what it has taken centuries to gain, to assuage the greed of others.

​  Charles Hugh Smith, Prepare to Be Bled Dry by a Decade of Stagflation​
​  ​The Great Moderation of low inflation and soaring assets has ended. Welcome to the death by a thousand cuts of stagflation. It was all so easy in the good old days of the past 25 years: just keep pushing interest rates lower to reduce the cost of borrowing and juice credit expansion ((financialization) and offshore industrial production to low-cost nations with few environmental standards and beggar-thy-neighbor currency policies (globalization).
​  ​Both financialization and globalization are deflationary forces, as they reduce costs. They are also deflationary to the wages of bottom 90%, as wages are pushed down by cheap global labor and stripmined by financialization, which channels the vast majority of the economy's gains into the top tier of the workforce and those who own the assets bubbling up in financialization's inevitable offspring, credit-asset bubbles.​..
​..​It turns out that the inevitable offspring of hyper-financialization and hyper-globalization are inflation, credit crises and the undermining of national security as the self-serving goal of pushing corporate profits higher via globalization led to fatal dependencies on competing powers for the essentials of modern life.
​  ​Correcting these decades-long extremes will take at least a decade as long-suppressed inflation becomes endemic, supply-chain disruptions become the norm and capital has to be invested in long-term national projects such as reshoring and the engineering of a new more efficient energy mix--projects that will only be expenses for many years.​

  Ugo Bardi: The Failure of Scientific Journals: the Failure of Science   (Big money bought the rights to "SCIENCE" decades ago.)
​  ​Some characteristics of science are not bugs, they are features. One of these characteristics is how scientific information is disseminated. Scientific, "peer-reviewed" journals are rapidly becoming a major stumbling block to scientific progress.

  El Gato Malo, Thanks Luc   a simple proposal to restore confidence in public data   if you want trust, let us verify
  “At the summit, Nobel Prize laureates and other experts will be joined by information technology and business leaders, policymakers, journalists, educators, and youth from around the world for a global discussion to explore solutions to actively combat the spread of misinformation and disinformation, share evidence-based knowledge and global experiences, and help restore confidence in science and systems of society.”
  oddly, nowhere on the agenda of this august assemblage of academic info-assassins will the topic of “hey, what if we just stopped lying all the fricking time?” be raised.
  “what if we were more open and honest and allowed and encouraged competing parallel assessments to challenge or verify our own?” also seems a question likely to go begging
  and therein lies both the problem and the solution.
  these bureaucracies and technocracies cannot be trusted and that problem is structural.
  left alone and unsupervised, they will always and everywhere become their own core constituencies
. it’s an inevitable emergent property of such systems.
