Interrupting Genocide

On The Right Trail,

  Seymore Hersh, A Year of Lying About Nordstream  [What we thought is confirmed in detail.]

  By then the CIA group had long disbanded. By then, too, the official told me: “We realized that the destruction of the two Russian pipelines was not related to the Ukrainian war”—Putin was in the process of annexing the four Ukrainian oblasts he wanted—“but was part of a neocon political agenda to keep Scholz and Germany, with winter coming up and the pipelines shut down, from getting cold feet and opening up” the shuttered Nord Stream 2. “The White House fear was that Putin would get Germany under his thumb and then he was going to get Poland.”
  The White House said nothing as the world wondered who committed the sabotage. “So the president struck a blow against the economy of Germany and Western Europe,” the official told me. “He could have done it in June and told Putin: We told you what we would do.” The White House’s silence and denials were, he said, “a betrayal of what we were doing. If you are going to do it, do it when it would have made a difference.”
  The leadership of the CIA team viewed Biden’s misleading guidance for its order to destroy the pipelines, the official told me, “as taking a strategic step toward World War III. What if Russia had responded by saying: You blew up our pipelines and I’m going to blow up your pipelines and your communication cables. Nord Stream was not a strategic issue for Putin—it was an economic issue. He wanted to sell gas. He’d already lost his pipelines” when the Nord Stream I and 2 were shut down before the Ukraine war began.
  Within days of the bombing, officials in Denmark and Sweden announced they would conduct an investigation. They reported two months later that there had indeed been an explosion and said there would be further inquiries. None has emerged. The German government conducted an inquiry but announced that major parts of its findings would be classified. Last winter German authorities allocated $286 billion in subsidies to major corporations and homeowners who faced higher energy bills to run their business and warm their homes. The impact is still being felt today, with a colder winter expected in Europe.
  President Biden waited four days before calling the pipeline bombing “a deliberate act of sabotage.” He said: “now the Russians are pumping out disinformation about it.” Sullivan, who chaired the meetings that led to the proposal to covertly destroy the pipelines, was asked at a later press conference whether the Biden administration “now believes that Russia was likely responsible for the act of sabotage?”
  Sullivan’s answer, undoubtedly practiced, was: “Well, first, Russia has done what it frequently does when it is responsible for something, which is make accusations that it was really someone else who did it. We’ve seen this repeatedly over time."
  “But the president was also clear today that there is more work to do on the investigation before the United States government is prepared to make an attribution in this case.” He continued: “We will continue to work with our allies and partners to gather all of the facts, and then we will make a determination about where we go from there.”
  I could find no instances when Sullivan was subsequently asked by someone in the American press about the results of his “determination.” Nor could I find any evidence that Sullivan, or the president, has been queried since then about the results of the “determination” about where to go.
  There is also no evidence that President Biden has required the American intelligence community to conduct a major all-source inquiry into the pipeline bombing. Such requests are known as “Taskings” and are taken seriously inside the government.
  All of this explains why a routine question I posed a month or so after the bombings to someone with many years in the American intelligence community led me to a truth that no one in America or Germany seems to want to pursue. My question was simple: “Who did it?”
  The Biden administration blew up the pipelines but the action had little to do with winning or stopping the war in Ukraine. It resulted from fears in the White House that Germany would waver and turn on the flow of Russia gas—and that Germany and then NATO, for economic reasons, would fall under the sway of Russia and 
its extensive and inexpensive natural resources. And thus followed the ultimate fear: that America would lose its long-standing primacy in Western Europe.

Fifth Circuit Allows Biden Admin To Continue Social Media Censorship Demands   :-o

  Jim Kunstler , Slouching Towards Beelzebub
  In April and May of 2021, the president (“Joe Biden”), the whole White House Covid Response Team (Andy Slavitt & Co), and everyone in the WH communications office, the US Surgeon General (Vivek Murthy), senior officials of the CDC including director Rochelle Walensky, Francis Collins, head of NIH, and Dr. Anthony Fauci of NIAID were all freaking out, holding crisis meetings, and sending blizzards of emails among each other after being informed by a Pfizer safety report that the miraculous new mRNA Covid vaccines produced significant cases of myocarditis and blood-clotting abnormalities.
  All these officials proceeded to craft a campaign to tell the public that this myocarditis was mild, extremely rare, and self-resolving (it wasn’t), and urged all Americans over twelve to keep taking the vaxx shots. Later, they expanded the vaccine program to include children down to six months old. By 2022, all of US public health officialdom had to know that the vaxxes were also ineffective at preventing infection and transmission of Covid. Rochelle Walensky kept pushing the vaccines as “safe and effective” until she resigned in June, 2023. Her replacement, Mandy K. Cohen, is still pushing the latest mRNA booster shots in the face of reports (mainly from the UK and other foreign countries) of a shocking rise in all-causes deaths and disabilities from heart and blood disease, neurological injury, and cancers. The CDC refused this month to release updated information on case numbers of myocarditis and pericarditis in the USA.
  The record of those frantic 2021 doings in the White House and the CDC came from a document dump prompted by a FOIA request by Edward Berkovich, a lawyer associated with Naomi Wolf’s Daily Clout news organization. He requested emails between February and June, 2021, that included the term “myocarditis.” CDC sent 472 pages, followed by an additional 46 pages, (believed to be sent by a whistleblower) that included emails between White House officials up to the president...
..What’s the upshot? From early on, our government lied about the safety of the vaccines, at the same time that they lied and confabulated about the origins of the Covid-19 virus. They continue lying about all of this to this day even as they appear to prepare for a replay of a pandemic. Now that the weekend is over, you will not read about any of this in The New York Times. Why is that? I will offer my theory: that newspaper’s business model, based on pages and pages of print advertising, is completely broken and it is on financial life-support from the CIA and / or DARPA, probably facilitated by private sector cut-outs laundering the money. That’s how dishonorable the flagship of the US news media is.
  And, of course, there is the added layer of government-directed censorship, also through private sector cut-outs, that is aimed at suppressing the truth about Covid from every angle, especially the vaccines. Doesn’t all of this look rather sinister? 
  Choose one of two possible explanations
  1) the Covid-19 episode from the beginning was a fantastic fiasco of blundering incompetence by hundreds of officials from many agencies plus elected leaders, and at every stage was made worse by additional incompetent actions aimed at concealing massive chains of prior misdeeds producing more misdeeds resulting in the wholesale collapse of authority in our country. In other words, an epic clusterfuck.
  Or 2) The entire Covid episode is a chain of crimes committed deliberately with malicious intent to kill and injure large numbers of people while contriving to deprive the survivors of their basic liberties and their property. Because identical events are seen in all the other nations of Western Civ, it would be reasonable to infer some kind of coordination managed by a supervisory force or entity. What we see is a globalist coalition formed of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), The European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN), the pharmaceutical industry, the “Five Eyes” intel alliance, the global banking establishment, The Democratic Party, and scores of well-endowed non-governmental agencies such as the George Soros constellation of councils and foundations.
What else is unseen?

  Dr. Fauci's Unregistered CIA Visit
  The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic just tweeted that it has obtained evidence that Dr. Fauci made an unregistered visit to the CIA’s headquarters to “influence” the intelligence agency’s investigation on the origin of SARS-CoV-2. If this allegation proves to be true, it will add to the mounting evidence that Fauci and his virology cronies performed the greatest act of fraudulent concealment in human history.

  "A CIA Front Organization": Revisiting EcoHealth COVID-19 Claims After Fauci 'Influence' Campaign Bombshell
  Following Tuesday night's bombshell report from Congressional investigators that Dr. Anthony Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters "without a record of entry" where he "participated in the analysis to "influence" the Agency's" Covid-19 investigation," it's worth revisiting claims made by former EcoHealth Alliance scientist, Andrew Huff, about the CIA's alleged connections to EcoHealth and Covid-19...
..According to a January, 2022 Twitter (now "X") thread by Huff, who worked at EcoHealth from 2014 to 2016, "I knew in December of 2019 that COVID was likely a lab leak." Huff then claimed that "Not only is EcoHealth Alliance a CIA front organization, but the United States of America is primarily responsible for COVID, not China."
  Huff also told Fox Business in January: "This was actually a failed intelligence operation. We were actually trading China advanced biotechnology for access to and collect intelligence on their bioweapons laboratory. I believe. I can’t prove that but a number of agencies that I discuss in the book, including Dr. Peter Daszak telling me he worked with the CIA." ...
..From Huff's book, "The Truth About Wuhan":
  "These discussions resulted in publications indicating that Dr. Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance, was working with the CIA, and that the biological agent commonly known as COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) had been in development at EcoHealth Alliance since 2012, and other evidence suggested that SARS-CoV-2 began earlier than 2012. The development of SARS-CoV-2 included several prominent US-based scientists and US academic institutions that received funding from numerous federal government agencies and private non-governmental organizations to complete the gain of function work on SARS-CoV-2."
  Huff also posted a document obtained by Project Veritas and published in January of 2022 purportedly authored (and not denied) by Maj. Joseph Murphy (USMC), which states "SARS-CoV-2 is an American-created recombinant bat vaccine" which was "created by an EcoHealth Alliance program at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV)."

Meryl Nass MD ,  RFK Jr. interview with Leah Wilson of Stand for Health Freedom is explicit about his views on WHO. And DTP increases deaths in African babies.
  “I won’t let that happen… I will defund the WHO… The WHO used to do useful things… That is what it should be doing… It will become a health organization again, otherwise I won’t fund them.”
  Then he speaks about the Peter Aaby MD, PhD studies in Guinea Bissau, Africa in which vaccinated babies had much higher overall deaths than unvaccinated children. In one study vaccinated girls had 10x the mortality rate of unvaccinated girls. There were a series of studies conducted over 40 years at a site sponsored by the Danish government. All showed higher mortality in the vaccinated cohorts.
  Here is something I wrote in 2019 about these studies:
DTP associated with 2-10 times increased mortality in African babies
  The following blog post is about something so unbelievable and so terrible it kept me awake most of last night.  Here it is: "All currently available evidence suggests that DTP vaccine may kill more children from other causes than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis."  A highly respected group of Danish researchers say this after studying the results of vaccinations for many years.  
  This group of Danish physicians and scientists has been studying vaccines in a center in Guinea Bissau, Africa (and sometimes in other places) since 1979.  Their work is widely published and has not been subject to significant criticism of any kind.
  What they have found, in a series of different studies going back 15 years, is that vaccinating young infants with DTP increases the likelihood of early death from 2 to 10 times expected.  (Different numbers came up in different studies, but each study found at least a doubling of mortality related to DTP).  The researchers have looked at this in a variety of ways, but kept getting the same answer: that DTP is associated with significantly increased death rates.  They propose that the reason may be that the vaccine makes babies more susceptible to other infections (other than Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis) than they would be otherwise.
  The researchers are so convinced of this effect they asked WHO to study it further and change the international program to vaccinate with DTP.
  The WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts did not dispute their data, and agreed that randomized trials of DPT needed to be done.  But then a decision was made not to do such trials.

 The latest example of this is #plasmidgate related drama. Dr. Buckhaults is one of the scientists who replicated Kevin McKernan’s finding of DNA plasmids in Pfizer and Moderna vials. There are 5-6 labs so far that have done the replication tests and found the same results - this is as “gold standard” as it gets in science. (Peer review does not include replication of the results, and so about 90% of peer reviewed studies are unreliable as science).
  The analyses of Pfizer and Moderna vials show that the DNA found was not only hugely over the allowable limits for this process related impurity (up to ~100 times), but also contained undisclosed genetic components such as SV40 promoter that just so happens is a nuclear targeting component for transfection of human cells! After finding and confirming this, Dr. Buckhaults started backpedaling. His rationale - Pfizer was in a hurry and grabbed something off the shelf that had SV40 without realizing what they are doing! This is not a valid excuse.

  I have been seeing a rumor for a couple of weeks that something very bad will happen on October 4, so find some way to disconnect your smartphone battery or put it in a Faraday cage, or be nowhere near it or other 5G devices like routers and laptops. 
  The proposition is that mRNA "vaccine products" with lipid micelles carrying (modified)mRNA were also packed with Ebola Virus, Marburg Virus (similar), E. coli and Staphylococcus, the last 2 being bacteria, and orders of magnitude larger. Clearly, the bacteria cannot go inside the lipid micelles. 
  The lipid micelles/nanoparticles are 30-200 nM (nanometers) in diameter. The Marburg virus is 80 nM wide and 1000 nM long, so it won't fit. The Ebola virus is 80 nM wide and up to 14,000 nM long, so it won't fit either.
  The rest of the proposition is that certain frequencies, pulsed on your 5G device for a couple of minutes will unlock the pathogenic bacteria and viruses locked in the little lipid bottles, by bursting the bottles. This is purportedly planned for 10/4/23, with backup date of 10/11/23. 
  The proposal that the mRNA gene-therapy products are part one of a 2 part deadly poison is not new, and we are seeing increases in cancers, strokes, heart attacks and autoimmune disease from Part-1. 
  I would not be surprised to find that some particular pathogen, in a pandemic spread, would preferentially infect and harm the "vaccinated", since COVID already infects this group more, and they appear to comprime most of the fatalities from COVID these days (though there may be other confounding causes and morbidities among the multiply boosted, who may see doctors a lot).
  This story cannot be factual as stated. It is impossible. This may preemptively discredit future proposals about "binary weapons Part-2", which might turn out to be factual. 
This kind of straw-man scare is like a boy crying "wolf". It doesn't mean there is no actual wolf in the world.

War Is Bad


  Spartacus spills the beans on war, and explains why it is a very bad idea to support or obtain income from war in any way. (I grew up on bases during Vietnam. I never joined.)
​  War has always been a convenient human-shredder for the Overclass. It has always been that way. If, in ancient Rome, they did not conscript the excess unmarried men, they’d need some way to furnish them with enough wealth and creature comforts to keep them from revolting against the state and politically destabilizing it. War was simply the most expedient means of disposing of this excess while having them retrieve more wealth for the Overclass to enjoy. It’s a scam. It has always been a scam.
​  Why are people so surprised that states would murder their own citizens with a virus scare followed by a poisoned vaccine? I’m not surprised at all. States have been using messier, more overt methods to murder people for centuries. A poisoned vaccine is a clean method. It leaves the infrastructure intact, only disposing of excess human livestock. You didn’t care when they blew up Baghdad on live television. Like everyone else, your eyes glazed over, the rational part of your brain shut off, and you enjoyed the pretty fireworks. Why would you care when your nine-year-old son collapses from cardiac arrest right in front of you? It’s the same thing, with the same motives behind it; getting rid of people that the economy has no further use for.

​  Guess what has happened to this department over the decades? It saves up money from renting Hawaiian homelands to corporations, but has its own plans for spending it.
​  The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is governed by the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1920, enacted by the U.S. Congress to protect and improve the lives of native Hawaiians. The act created a Hawaiian Homes Commission to administer certain public lands, called Hawaiian home lands, for homesteads. Native Hawaiians are defined as individuals having at least 50 percent Hawaiian blood.
​  The Act was incorporated as a provision in the State Constitution in 1959 when Hawai‘i was granted statehood. Responsibility for the Commission and the Hawaiian home lands was transferred to the State at that time.​..

​..In addition to administering the homesteading program, DHHL leases trust lands not in homestead use at market value and issues revocable permits, licenses, and rights-of-entry. The income from these enterprises is used to supplement DHHL’s programs, including continued homestead development.

​  More from Sasha Latypova's site. Look, the Department of Hawaiian Homelands already has plans to build a "Worker's Paradise" where the field got burned out. The nice houses for lower-income people in the new developments all burned, but fortunately the houses for wealthy people did not. 
Things are falling right into place better than anybody could have anticipated.

  ​Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's Saturday 9/23/23 speech to the UN General Assembly (a most articulate 23 min. explanation of what is happening despite the "west")
During his address to the UNGA, Russia's top diplomat stressed that a new world order is being born "before our very eyes”, with the "future created in the struggle between the global majority" and those few who "use neocolonial methods of subjugation to retain their vanishing domination"​.

​  I'll argue that WW-3 is already underway, but it does not look like the end of WW-2, with the nuclear annihilation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki 78 years ago.
​I very much agree with Spartacus and Sergey Lavrov above. War is a management technique for power elites to manage populations and resources, and in restive times, to get young men to expend their lives against each other for the causes of the owners, rather than to unseat the owners in their common-interest. 
​  Another path might be possible on a societal level this time around, but that could also be a head-fake. At this point the choice should be relatively easy for healthy humans to resist war as much as possible, without becoming too much of a target oneself. 
  In this war the owners want to keep all of the nice stuff, and a functional industrial society, but get rid of what they see as a vast excess of humanity, which is using up their nice stuff, and not directly contributing to their plans for their world.
Is World War III About to Start? Part I: Drift Toward War

​  Matt Taibbi ,  Justin Trudeau's Nazi Hot Take Flexibility
​  Warning of "Russian disinformation" after a clear political own goal, Canada's Prime Minister solidifies his status as the world's most nauseating pseudo-intellectual
 A year and a half ago, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced a Jewish member of parliament named Melissa Lantsman for standing with “people who wave swastikas.” Lantsman had criticized Trudeau for fanning “the flames of an unjustified national emergency” in response to the “Freedom Convoy” trucker protests. The “swastikas” Trudeau referenced were, as even Snopes conceded, virtually all “pictured on signs as a way of mocking and protesting government restrictions.” ...
..By saying Lantsman stood with “people who wave swastikas,” in other words, Trudeau really meant she was standing with “people who called me a Nazi.” He declined to apologize, which of course is his prerogative.
​  This week, both Trudeau and House of Commons Speaker Anthony Rota are under fire after Rota invited, and Trudeau applauded, a 98-year-old former soldier from the 14th Waffen-SS Grenadier Division named Yaroslav Hunka to attend an address by Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. Rota praised Hunka as a “Canadian hero” from his time fighting the Soviets in World War II when, not that it matters, they were allies to the United States and Canada...
​..Amid the subsequent outcry, Trudeau squeaked out a handful of sentences that collectively gave off least a faint aroma of apology, though he personally didn’t apologize for anything, and invoked “mistakes were made” phrasing:
​  "It’s extremely upsetting that this happened. The Speaker has acknowledged his mistake and has apologized… This is something that is deeply embarrassing to the Parliament of Canada and by extension to all Canadians…​ I think particularly of Jewish MPs and all members of the Jewish community, celebrating, um, commemorating Yom Kippur today.​"
​  If he’d stopped there, it would have been a merely gross performance. He didn’t, jumping straight from “Yom Kippur today” to:
​  "I think it’s going to be really important that all of us push back against Russian propaganda, Russian disinformation, and continue our steadfast and unequivocal support for Ukraine, as we did last week with announcing further measures to stand with Ukraine in Russia’s illegal war against it.​" ...
​..As the CBC put it:
​"Trudeau warned that this event may fuel Russian propaganda. Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed the Ukraine conflict is about rooting out Nazis.​"

​  Dude, Vladimir Putin didn’t invite a Nazi to parliament, your government did.

​  The (modified)mRNA gene therapy "vaccines interfere with the immune system in multiple ways, often causing autoimmune disease and failure to regulate cancerous cells.
​  Cancer begins when genetic changes interfere with the normal replication and replacement of cells in the body. Cells start to grow uncontrollably and may form a tumour. It is the No. 2 leading cause of death in the United States.
​  Unfortunately, it appears the disease may be on the rise thanks to the experimental Covid-19 injections. Because official U.S. Government data confirms the risk of developing cancer following Covid-19 vaccination increases by a shocking 143,233%.
​  A quick search of the CDC VAERS database on the number of cancer cases reported as adverse reactions to the Covid-19 injections since they were first rolled out in the USA, reveals that from December 2020 up to 5th August 2022, a total of 2,579 adverse events related to cancer were made in just 1 year and 8 months.
But performing a similar search of the VAERS database on the number of cancer cases reported as adverse events to all other available vaccines between 2008 and 2020, a period of 13 years, reveals there were just 791 adverse events related to cancer...
..In all between the 08/09 flu season and the 19/20 flu season, there were a total of 1,720,400,000 (1.7204 billion) doses of the flu jab administered in the USA.
​  The CDC also confirms that between 2008 and 2020, a period of 13 years, there were just 64 events related to cancer reported as adverse reactions to the influenza vaccines.
​  Based on the number of adverse events related to cancer alone, we can see that there have been 40.3x as many cancer cases related to Covid-19 vaccination than there have been related to flu vaccination...
..According to ‘Our World in Data’, as of 9th August 2022, 606 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in the USA. This means there have been actually nearly 3x as many flu vaccines administered between 2008-2020 than Covid-19 injections since the end of 2020, let alone all of the other vaccines that have been administered.
​  Therefore, the number of adverse events related to cancer reported per 100,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine administered equates to 0.43 per 100,000 doses.
​  This means Covid-19 vaccination is 1433.33x / 143,233.33% more likely to cause cancer than flu vaccination. It can be argued that because the numbers are so extraordinarily low for the flu vaccine, that flu vaccination does not cause cancer. Therefore, it can be argued that the risk of developing cancer following Covid-19 vaccination is 1433x greater than the background risk.

Terrestrial Threats

 Threatened Terrans,

  Presented here by a newscaster are 3 minutes of coincidences about whose houses burned in Lahaina (poor), whose did not (wealthy), police actions that trapped residents in fires, fires that jumped over wide, dry roads to burn boats in the harbor, and emergency powers of housing control granted to Governor Josh Green just days before the sudden and mysterious fires. (I am saddened to see the stonewalling by government, FAA, US Military, and mainstream media. They are determined to keep all of the actual events a secret, presumably so that they may survive and prosper.)

Gilbert Doctorow ,  Latest news on the war:  these past two days we have advanced considerably to a full-blown Russia-NATO war
  This, coming from Turkish sources, says that the Russians retaliated to the Sevastopol destruction by staging their own cruise missile attack on the Kremenchug Airport, the launch site used by the Ukrainians. “Both SCALP and Storm Shadow missiles, which were stationed at the airbase, along with the SU24M/MR bombers responsible for today’s attack, have been detroyed. A substantial number of firefighters and ambulances have been dispatched to the airfield. There are significant casualties among pilots, ground personnel and even NATO personnel, including Poles, who were involved in coordinating the operations and maintaining the missiles.”
  This all suggests an additional reason for Biden to consent to shipment of the ATACMS missiles to Ukraine now: unlike the Storm Shadow, they are launched from the ground on mobile launchers similar to HIMARS. Therefore the loss of airfields and bombers and pilots does not constrain their use and holds the promise of more destuction of Russian assets in Crimea. I would also wager that US forces will be sent not just to maintain but to target and launch the ATACMS.

  LUGANSK (Sputnik) - A Russian reconnaissance team has destroyed a German-supplied Leopard tank of the Ukrainian military with a crew comprised of Bunderswehr soldiers.
  "The mechanic repeatedly stated that he was not a mercenary but a Bundeswehr serviceman, and that he and the rest of the crew were members of the same unit of the German army," the Russian fighter said, adding that while receiving medical aid, the German soldier named his brigade and its dislocation site.
The tank's driver died from wounds minutes after he was found despite efforts to save him.

  More Doctorow ,  Dispensing war news with an eye-dropper
  Both Russia and the West have released only carefully selected news about military developments this past week. The omissions distort perceptions of the decision-making processes that are carrying us along to WWIII...
..This past week witnessed a successful Ukrainian attack on the general staff building of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, Crimea. The building was set alight and the destruction was apparently extensive. We can only guess at how extensive from terse statements made by the civil Governor (effectively the mayor) of Sevastopol, which is by itself a ‘subject’ or region of the Russian Federation. He said that firefighters had worked for several hours to bring the fire in the building under control. Moreover, debris from the missile strike was spread to a distance of several hundred meters. The Governor warned city residents to stay away from the city center, so as not to hamper the work of emergency crews and not to fall victim to possible follow-up missile attacks. One clue to the level of destruction was a small article on today’s Russian news ticker that a miracle-working icon in the staff building had itself miraculously survived the attack. As for human casualties, the Governor mentioned only one serviceman who is not accounted for. The Russians did officially identify the attacking missiles as British manufactured Storm Shadow air-to-ground cruise missiles.
  A devastating attack on staff headquarters and only one victim?  That should tip you off to what you will find only on a very few essentially underground Russian websites: namely that the Russian naval staff had been evacuated from the museum-like headquarters building long ago and is working normally from underground premises at unknown locations.
  So far, up to the present, Russian state television has had no coverage of the missile attack on Sevastopol. We shall see whether it is discussed in the News of the Week program hosted by Dmitry Kiselyov this evening.
  As for the West, it took two days for government news managers and editors of the mass media to decide on the ‘spin’ to give their publics with respect to the missile attack on Sevastopol and the separately reported surprise decision of the Biden administration to ship to Kiev the long demanded ATACMS medium range cruise missiles. As recently as midweek, during Zelensky’s visit to Congress and to the Oval Office, Jake Sullivan told reporters that this issue has been withheld for the indefinite future. Is there no connection between the Sevastopol attack and the go-ahead for ATACMS to Kiev?  That means the public has no understanding whatsoever of how and why the United States is being drawn deeper and deeper into the Ukraine quagmire...
..A subtitle to this article informs us that “Washington will send a version of the weapon that uses cluster munitions, according to people familiar with the matter.”  Now what is the fairly transparent message here? It is that Washington is supplying Kiev with rockets suitable for continuation of its terrorist attacks on residential neighborhoods in the Donbas as the Ukrainian forces are pushed further West by Russians in the coming Russian offensive that Pentagon officials understand is coming now that the Ukrainian counter-offensive is kaput. These cluster bombs are not going to sink Russian naval vessels in Sevastopol harbor...
..“ATACM have an advantage over the British and French missiles because they can be fired from Himars launchers rather than Ukraine’s ageing Soviet-era fighter jets.”
  “Ageing Soviet-era fighter jets!”  My hats off to the FT editors for formulating an explanation of the situation that avoids telling the simple truth, namely that those Soviet-era fighter jets are being hunted and destroyed by the Russians so that shortly they will be no more.
  I say this with reference to the Russian response to the Storm Shadow attack in Sevastopol that occurred within hours of the blast at the staff headquarters: namely they used a swarm of nearly invisible and unstoppable cruise missiles to devastate the Kremenchug airfield
from which the attack on Crimea had been launched...
..“On the night of 23 September, the airport of Kremenchug was attacked by a large number of Russian cruise missiles. At the time no air raid alarms went off. The Ukrainian public supposes that these were ‘the hardly noticeable’ X-50 cruise missiles.
  “The Russians destroyed valuable cargo: SCALP and Storm Shadow rockets which were delivered to the air base. They also destroyed several SU-24M bombers.
  “There is a huge number of fire fighting and first aid vehicles now at the air base. They write that there have been big losses of pilots and maintenance personnel, as well as dead NATO officers, including from Poland, who had arrived to coordinate the rocket launches.”
  I acknowledge that Tsargrad is denounced by Western governments as a disseminator of fake news and its website is inaccessible from some countries in Europe. However, what I quote above has also been issued by other portals...
..So now the United States is crossing its own red lines and risking escalation of the war and finger pointing of the Russians to its co-belligerent status by sending the ATACMS to Ukraine. We can be sure that U.S. military will be sent with the hardware.
  Finally, I come back to the news item I mentioned yesterday on Russians finding the crew of a Leopard tank they destroyed in the battlefield this past week to have been regular Bundeswehr servicemen.  My colleague in Germany informs me that as of today there has not been a word about this in Germany.  However, there soon will be.  From the unofficial news portals in Russia, I see that the Kremlin has every intention of bringing this scandal to the attention of the broad German public in the hope that it will touch off popular demonstrations against Scholz.

  More Doctorow here, but I want to shade his assessment differently. Europe is being starved of Russian fuel and forced to adapt to that. Plastics manufacture and chemical plants have had to shut down without natural gas, and everything costs more. Oil and diesel from Russia are being purchased through India at higher prices. It seems to me, and I can only speculate, that after Russia failed to collapse economically a lot of things have happened which may not have been planned ahead by anybody who lay the initial bear-trap. 
  As to the destruction of European agriculture, I don't think that is the globalist business plan, either. Monsanto owns something like 28% of Ukrainian farmland by a recent estimat (there are others). Much of Ukrainian grain is now owned by globalist and US interests. Their usual business model would be served by driving Polish and Czech farmers out of business, maybe buing their land at some deep markdown, rinsing and repeating. They would want to monopolize, supersize and "modernize" European farming.
  With the acquiescence of the EU’s comprador elites, the US is de-industrializing Europe. Next on the agenda, to destroy European agriculture
   I have in mind the dramatic spat between Poland and Ukraine over that country’s grain exports which was brought before the world media and diplomatic community at the United Nations General Assembly this week.
  On the dais of the General Assembly, President Zelensky slammed unnamed East European countries which a week ago defied the EU’s lifting of a temporary ban on Ukrainian grain entering the EU on the 15th and said they will unilaterally continue to refuse entry of these commodities.  Even before his UN appearance, Ukraine had said it will take the offenders, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, to court at the World Trade Organization for violation of trade rules.
  For his part, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki responded on Polish television, saying that his country will no longer supply weapons to Ukraine.  Jaws at the editorial board of The Financial Times and other mainstream Western media dropped upon hearing this decision. As we all know, Poland has been the most ardent supporter of the Ukrainian war effort, prodding other EU members to do their part.
  Poland has taken in by far the largest number of Ukrainian refugees from the war. It has supplied substantial amounts of military materiel to Kiev from its own arsenal. And Poland has been the main transit country delivering NATO weapons and munitions to Ukraine from its domestic marshalling points across the border from Lviv.
  No one had any doubts why the Polish government has done this policy reversal: it is facing a close election in less than a month and it needs the full support of Polish farmers to achieve a win.  Those farmers have been demonstrating vociferously against the Ukrainian grain entering the country ostensibly for destinations abroad but de facto remaining on their home market and being sold at prices far below the Polish farmers’ production costs...
..It is especially interesting that in his fury over the impertinent and insulting speech of Zelensky, Morawiecki let out an observation that you otherwise would not have heard or seen in Western media: namely that the grain Ukraine is exporting is on behalf of the Ukrainian oligarchs who own the farmland.
  Though he was incensed, Morawiecki nonetheless did watch his words, because he omitted saying that the Ukrainian grain being exported is also substantially produced by American agricultural behemoths who now own about 28% of the farmland in Ukraine and are raising their stakes all the time.
  It would be fair to say that the whole scandal over Ukrainian exports of grain via its EU neighbors is not that the grain does not end up in the ports of the world’s neediest countries, it is that the beneficiaries of the exports are US corporations and Ukrainian crooks, not the Ukrainian people and its small holding farmers in particular. The main losers are the farmers of small, medium and large holdings in the EU, who cannot compete on price with the Ukrainians both because of the natural advantages of their ‘black earth’ lands, the most fertile in Europe, and because of the industrial scale that has been introduced in Ukraine by the new corporate owners, domestic and foreign.
  In the midst of the dispute over Ukrainian grain, Western media have picked up tidbits of information about other Ukrainian agricultural commodities that have raised hackles among EU farmers.  The longest list probably has been compiled by Hungary, which seeks to ban virtually all produce from Ukraine.  For their part, Bulgaria and Romania have complained over cheap Ukrainian honey.
  And yet the complaints over predatory pricing of Ukrainian farm products have come from as far west as France, where the main issue is Ukrainian poultry meat, priced at less than half producer costs in France. In part, this is due to the same cheap grain issue, since chickens are walking sacks of grain: two kilograms of wheat give you one kilogram of broiler chickens.  But the additional driver of Ukrainian export prices is scale of production. French television recently brought out the fact that the biggest exporter of poultry meat to France that is being purchased by the school lunch programs as well as by major retail grocery chains is a Ukrainian complex that raises one million chickens at a time and has vertical integration from the grain inputs, to the hatcheries, to the slaughter and chilled packaging of eviscerated chickens.  By contrast, the average chicken farmer in France keeps just 50,000 birds. It would be interesting to know who exactly owns that industrial scale chicken complex in Ukraine.

  Russia Will Ask Canada to Explain Decision to Honor Nazi Veteran   [A real WW-2, Waffen SS Nazi]
  Russian Ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov told Sputnik that on Monday he would request explanations from the Canadian Foreign Ministry and the Prime Minister’s office in connection with the invitation and honoring in the country’s parliament of Ukrainian Nazi veteran Yaroslav Hunka. On Friday, Hunka, a 98 years-old Ukrainian Nazi veteran who fought in the ranks of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the Nazi SS during the Second World War, was given a standing ovation by the entire Canadian legislature. Hunka’s recognition happened as the Speaker of the House of Commons, Anthony Rota, was giving introductory remarks prior to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s address to the Canadian parliament.

  Russell Brand, Another Truth Warrior ‘Guilty Until Proven Innocent’
  Russell Brand is/was that sort of spirited and fearless individual. While initially part of the Hollywood circuit, appearing in films and performing stand-up comedy, the loquacious Brit eventually found himself ostracized from tinsel town after pointing out during the 2013 GQ Awards that the sponsor of the event, Hugo Boss, manufactured uniforms for the Nazi Party during World War II.
  Having successfully torched his Hollywood career, Brand began to focus attention on his YouTube channel, where his fierce wit, intelligence and machine-gun-style delivery saw his number of subscribers climb to almost 7 million in 10 years. These are the sort of figures that land social media personalities on the ‘truth radar,’ a system backed by an army of left-wing fanatics and civil rights nut jobs devoted to enforcing ‘community standards’ with pure fascist fervor. Brand fell so far afoul of the mainstream media narrative that he was playing in an entirely differently stadium.
  It’s hard to say exactly when the powers-that-be decided to take down the YouTube sensation, but his March 2023 appearance on the Bill Maher show would be a safe bet. Appearing alongside John Heilemann, a national affairs analyst with MSNBC, and Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders, Brand went on a tangent about the Covid-19 pandemic and the pharmaceutical industry.
  “The pandemic created at least 40 new Big Pharma billionaires; pharmaceutical corporations like Moderna and Pfizer made $1,000 in profit every second from the Covid-19 vaccines; more than two-thirds of Congress received campaign funding from pharmaceutical companies in the 2020 election; Pfizer Chairman Albert Bourla told Time magazine in July 202 that his company was developing a Covid vaccine for the good of humanity, not for money, and of course Pfizer made a $100 billion dollars in profit in 2022.”
  Maher, desperately trying to get a word in edgewise on his own show, reminded Brand that “a lot of people would be dead without the vaccine.”
  To which Brand snapped back: “If you have an economic system in which pharmaceutical companies benefit hugely from medical emergencies, where the military industrial complex benefits from war, where energy companies benefit from energy crisis, you are going to generate states of permanent crisis where the interests of ordinary people separate from the interests of the elite.” ...
..Whether by chance or design, on September 16, a joint investigation conducted by the Times, Sunday Times and Channel 4 Dispatches was published, detailing four separate sexual-assault allegations, including one charge of rape, made against Brand that were said to have occurred between 2006 and 2013.
  Brand vehemently denies the allegations and in a video said he had been “very promiscuous” in the past, but all of his relationships had been “absolutely, always consensual”.
  All of this is very suspect. After all, 10 years is a long time, so what compelled four women to make allegations against Brand simultaneously? ...
..YouTube announced that it had “suspended [monetization] on Russell Brand’s channel for violating our Creator Responsibility policy…If a creator’s off-platform behavior harms our users, employees or ecosystems, we take action to protect the community.” ...
..Much like was the case with Julian Assange, who faced similar age-old charges after releasing information damning to the U.S. establishment, Brand is a very articulate individual who is not afraid of speaking truth to power. Much like Alex Jones, Tucker Carlson, and hundreds of other dissident voices, his anti-establishment opinions could not be tolerated, and once again the mainstream media was activated to do the dirty work of character assassination.

  Meryl Nass MD , "Pharmacovigilance and Biostatistics" for vaccines at FDA: 7 of 18 positions are vacant. And desperately [not] seeking Myocarditis.
Is this the excuse for not looking at all their databases on COVID vaccine safety?
Who is looking at the info on over 100 million Americans allegedly collected to assure vaccine safety?...
..Here is what has obviously occurred. All these agencies were told they had to keep quiet on vaccine problems (and perhaps problems of other COVID treatments), and they had to fiddle with their data or their analytic methods, or both, to get the required results. And there was to be NO BAD NEWS, no matter what. And no good news regarding generic treatments.
  As we have seen, the so-called scientists and physicians working as bureaucrats in these agencies all caved, sucked it up, did the dirty work, kept their jobs, and betrayed their oaths and the trust of the people of the USA and the world...
..Yet here is what her own agency found 6 months ago:

  Meryl Nass MD again, with a very detailed and impressive list of scientific reports of myocarditis from COVID "vaccine products".
I'm saving this for when we get into a courtroom over these vaccines: the myocarditis timeline
Zachary Stieber confirms what I have long said: the fed agencies knew about myocarditis and hid it and pushed covid vaccines on tens of millions of American (and foreign) kids at high risk

US statistics from VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) show. VAERS is a voluntary reporting system that records only 1% of vaccine side effects, as VAERS itself states on its website.

  Our Sun is currently still in the ascending leg of the current Solar Maximum event, which will not begin to decline until the solar magnetic poles flip, At the same time, Earth's magnetic field is much weakened, so that when coronal mass ejections of charged particles impact Earth, they have much more charge penetration than would usually be expected from their magnitude. The "Carrington Event" of September 1-2, 1859, during Solar Cycle 10, caused electric current to flow in telegraph cables and fires and massive sparking in telegraph stations, which were the only electrical infrastructure of the day. Telegraphy was carried out between Boston and Portland by disconnecting the batteries, as they were interfering with signal transmission via induced current anv voltage, which were fluctuating and bucking the batteries.
Boston: "Mine is disconnected, and we are working with the auroral current. How do you receive my writing?"
Portland: "Better than with our batteries on. – Current comes and goes gradually."
Boston: "My current is very strong at times, and we can work better without the batteries, as the aurora seems to neutralize and augment our batteries alternately, making current too strong at times for our relay magnets. Suppose we work without batteries while we are affected by this trouble."
Portland: "Very well. Shall I go ahead with business?"
Boston: "Yes. Go ahead."

The magnitude of the solar flare associated with the Carrington Event is estimated at X-56 to X-80.

 Since the last officially released magnetic field strength of the Earth was at least 15% reduced in 2010, the currents induced at the planetary surface would be much greater. There was a fall of Terrestrial Magnetic Field Strength of 10% between 1900 and 2000, so it was measured again by NASA in 2010, and found to be a further 5% weaker in only one decade. 
  Terrestrial Magnetic Field Strength was to be measured and reported again in 2015 and 2020, but instead of being published, existing data was made more difficult to access by NASA and the European Space Agency. It is fair to assume further and more rapid field strength degradation, based upon aururae of fairly mils solar flares being visible as far south as Arizona regularly, including with the mild flaring which imacted yesterday afternoon, into the night, as described in this morning's Space Weather News:

  This news was of increased interest to me, as I had been awaiting the arrival of the mass ejections from the mild flares, but had a loss of internet service in (rural) Yoakum from 3:10 PM yesterday until just before midnight, correlating to the induced geomagnetic disturbances. The outage may have been coincidental, but causes are never divulged.

  An equivalent electrical disruption to the Carrington Event might occur today with flare magnitudes under X-30, if the solar flare were Earth-facing, which most are not.

  Geomagnetic storms have the potential to wreak havoc on Earth. In 1989, a geomagnetic storm blacked out the entire Canadian province of Quebec in 90 seconds, leaving 6 million customers in the dark for nine hours, according to NASA. It also damaged transformers as far away as New Jersey—including one at a nuclear power plant—and nearly took down U.S. power grids from the Eastern Seaboard to the Pacific Northwest.
  Geomagnetic storms can also disrupt radio communications and GPS navigation by warping the atmosphere in ways that modify the paths of radio signals, NOAA noted. For instance, the Halloween Storm of 2003 prevented the Federal Aviation Administration from providing GPS navigational guidance for roughly 30 hours, according to a 2011 study for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
  Solar plasma can also heat the planet's upper atmospheric layers, making them swell and potentially drag down satellites in low Earth orbit, NOAA said. (As recently happened to some of Elon Musk's Starlink satellites.)

  March 10-12 1989 Geomagnetic Storm (a closer look)
  The geomagnetic storm causing this event is believed to be the result of two separate events known as coronal mass ejections (CME) on March 10 and 12, 1989.[2] A few days before, on March 6, a very large X15-class solar flare also occurred. Several days later, at 01:27 UT on March 13, a severe geomagnetic storm struck Earth. The storm began on Earth with extremely intense auroras at the poles. The aurora could be seen as far south as Texas and Florida. (Which now happens with sub-X-Class flares.) ...
..The storm caused significant interference to the United States power grid.
  Substantial communications blackouts occurred.
The burst caused shortwave radio interference, including the disruption of radio signals from Radio Free Europe into Russia. It was initially believed that the signals had been jammed by the Soviet government.[citation needed] As midnight came and went, a mass of charged particles and electrons in the ionosphere flowed from west to east, inducing powerful electrical currents in the ground...
..The variations in the Earth's magnetic field also tripped circuit breakers on Hydro-Qu├ębec's power grid.  The utility's very long transmission lines and the fact that most of Quebec sits on a large rock shield prevented current flowing through the earth, finding a less resistant path along the 735 kV power lines.
The James Bay network went offline in less than 90 seconds, giving Quebec its second massive power outage in 11 months.

  A 21st Century View of the March 1989 Magnetic Storm
  This paper reexamines the information available about the March 1989 event and uses this to construct a timeline and description of the space weather phenomena and how they caused the power system effects. The evidence shows that the disturbance was caused by two coronal mass ejections (CMEs): the first associated with a X4.5 flare on 10 March and the second linked to a M7.3 flare on 12 March.

​  2003 Halloween solar storms​  [T​he largest X45 CME was fortunately not directly Earth-facing, but ​a "glancing blow".​ It would have been another Carrington Event.]
​  The Halloween solar storms were a series of solar storms involving solar flares and coronal mass ejections that occurred from mid-October to early November 2003, peaking around October 28–29. This series of storms generated the largest solar flare ever recorded by the GOES system, modeled as strong as X45 (initially estimated at X28 due to saturation of GOES' detectors).​..
..Satellite-based systems and communications were affected, aircraft were advised to avoid high altitudes near the polar regions, and a one-hour-long power outage occurred in Sweden as a result of the solar activity. Aurorae were observed at latitudes as far south as Texas and the Mediterranean countries of Europe. Twelve transformers in South Africa were disabled and had to be replaced, despite the country's low geomagnetic latitude.​..
​..One of the solar storms was compared by some scientists in its intensity to the Carrington Event of 1859.​ [It was not Earth-facing, a great relief, as you may also recall.]
​..These events occurred during solar cycle 23, approximately three years after its peak in 2000, which was marked by another occurrence of solar activity known as the Bastille Day event.​  [This was a surprising flurry of solar activity during a period expected to be much calmer.]

Simplifying The Polycrisis

 Following The Money,

  The context within which I am interpreting much of the news these days is the context of declining net global oil to power economies. Oil provides critical liquid fuels diesel and gasoline for transportation, and also jet fuel (kerosine), and bunker-fuel for ships. Oil has a high energy density, and being a liquid it is easy to store in tanks and transfer to engines via metal tubing. Of the four kinds of coal, which powered the first era of the industrial revolution, anthracite is the highest in carbon density, the cleanest and hottest-burning, and was always the most in demand as a locomotive fuel and for metal smelting. Less than 1% of American coal mined is anthracite and it all comes from northeastern Pennsylvania.,bituminous%2C%20subbituminous%2C%20and%20lignite.

  The US was the first country to advance from coal power to oil power, and to use cars and trucks over wagons drawn by livestock, which happened between WW-1 and WW-2, as British anthracite coal production was falling off, and Italy was compelled to source coal from Germany instead, causing alliances to shift. The US was the only country in the European theater of WW-2 which did not need to source feed for horses. The US was the largest producer and exporter of oil in that period.

  Recently, global conventional-oil production peaked in 2005-2006, contributing to very high oil prices in 2006-2008, when the Global Financial Crisis occurred, at least partly a result of higher fuel prices increasing all costs and reducing most incomes in the general economy. Oil was redefined to "oil", since Peak-Oil analysis was threatening to global finance. "Oil" was now "conventional oil" plus liquids and condensates from fracking and natural-gas-liquids. These are liquids, but are too light to make diesel, and have lower energy content per barrel. "Oil" production appears to have peaked in the second half of 2018, and net "oil", subtracting the oil-spent-to-obtain-oil likely peaked about that same time.

  By September of 2019 there was a crisis of faith in overnight lending between the largest banks and financial institutions in the world, resulting in the cost at the "Repo-window"  rising to reflect the risk these institutions judged to exist between each other. This led to an excessive cost of overnight lending, called the "Repo-Crisis". Analysis by BlackRock,  reported to the US Treasury, was that capital was insufficient in the financial sector and "going direct" with massive cash infusions would be needed to stabilize the sector. This was done in March 2020, as the industrialized world was "locked-down" for COVID, which muted the inflationary impulse until after the summer of 2021, as everything "opened up" again.

  Current economic paradigms, developed in the past three centruies of industrialized economic expansion, are predicated upon growth of capital investments, predicated upon economic growth. Loans and investments must be repaid with interest, which is often problematic even with widespread economic growth, but leads to crises when economies contract. During  crises, such as war, large debts can be erased, or their payment enforced through seizure of land and property. The presumption is that economic growth will resume after the war, but debt enforcement was so severe after WW-1 that it was the proximal cause for WW-2. Germany militarized and repudiated the debt.

    Since WW-2 the $US, backed first by gold, then by oil and military intimidation, has been the global reserve and trade currency. Since the stagflation crisis of the late 1970s was turned into a deep recession by Fed Chair Paul Vockler, inflation has been controlled by suppressing wages, and the value of the $US has been sustained by high enough interest rates to assure a positive return on investment for international investors, particularly those buying US Treasury debt. A gradual decrease of interest rates over that period allowed US Treasury debt to be rolled over and over, recently surpassing the unfathomable number of 33 trillion dollars. Interest rates have risen dramatically to support the value of the dollar to investors seeking real returns, but the high and accellerating level of debt can only be defaulted upon, ultimately.

   When and how will that default be managed? FDR defaulted on Debts to Americans, and confiscated their gold, devaluing their paper money by 70%. This was a lso a broad default within American industry and investment, as gold bonds were all defaulted upon. Later, Richard Nixon was forced to default upon the international gold settlement standard of the $US, but the petrodollar arrangement had already been described by economist Michael Hudson, and was formalized by Nixon, Kissinger and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. The Saudis would only accept $US for oil, and would secretly recycle their $US into US Treasury debt, which would pay the military bills of the US government, allowing enforcement of the $US as the only currency with which to purchase oil. It was clear that this support for the market value of the $US could be sustained while Saudi oil lasted and the US military was able to prevent other countries from trading oil in other currencies. 

  This scheme to sustain US government spending, even as industrial production declined, has been workable while interest rates fell, controlling the interest payments on debt, and letting them be rolled over. Iraq, Libya and Iran could be militarily punished to a degree that deterred other countries from accepting anything but $US for oil. Keeping the market value of the $US elevated put American industrial exports at a disadvantage globally. Investing in American factories, except for weapons systems and advanced aviation and electronics was a money-losing proposition, so factories were offshored. 

  Financial Capitalism found another way to support the value of the $US through the stock market, by assuring real gains for investors who invested in $US. The values of a few companies could be manipulated in bubbles, and they could be rolled ove into fresh bubbles, in a sanctioned Ponzi scheme. Companies could be structured to "maximize shareholder (short-term) value" by buying back their own stock to pump the stock valuations. This hollowed-out the companies, while supporting the value of the $US to global financial investors. This is another game to be in "as long as the Fed's got your back", and nothing breaks. The Ponzi scheme does have to collapse, as we can see, but when?

  For the owners of global wealth, the more focused question is how they will maintain their "ownership" status at the top of the social order, where they live, and internationally.
This overrides all other considerations from their perspective, and they have studied the characteristics of humanity, as have their managers, since before history was written. They will need to enforce losses on all of the smaller players, but they will need to maintain order in the hierarchys that they command, so their managers and enforcers must be continually rewarded to hold their allegiance. Whatever "money" is defined as will need to be owned in their hands, be it gold, or Bitcoin, or some hybrid. When people die, they lose their claims on wealth, or are unable to contest them, so lots of death amongst people with claims on wealth, especially retirees, makes the maintenance of the ownership position easier. The pie gets cut into fewer pieces. Also from their perspective, all humans who do not earn wealth for them are just excess claims upon "their" wealth and assets.

  Famine and pestilence can cull the human herds with less destruction of wealth than overt war. War can be focused on the populations living above easily retrieved oil deposits, so they don't use them up in their economies, as in Iraq, Syria and Libya. Iran and Venezuela's economies have been frozen through economic blockades , which leaves infrastructure and oil wells intact, but does kill poor people.

  People need to remain unaware that this is the process taking place, or they will resist it. People need to believe that a series of unavoidable crises are just happening and it's bad luck, but things will return to normal if they just hang in there, go-green and get vaccinated against the next pandemic when it is identified. There may need to be some emergency interventions to combat homegrow, far-right, white supremacist terrorists and their supporters. Ultimately the good people will overcome those "MAGA" type threats to democracy and minority rights, and go on to transition into a completely renewable and carbon free economy. 
They will need each other's support and likes on social media through these challenging times.

Simplicius , about Thursday 9/21/23 visit to Washinton DC of Volodymyr Zelensky:  Zelensky's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad D.C. Snubfest

  This news cropped up Wednesday, September 20, 2023, the day before Zelensky flew to DC. This Russian govt. plane landed in NYC first, before proceeding on to Washington Thanks F.S.  I can't find any subsequent reports.  (So did a little 3-way negotiating happen?)
An Ilyushin-Il-96-300 is sitting in Washington Dulles after making the long trip from Russia to the United States.

  Wednesday 9/20/23, this was the official word: 
  "Ukraine will not get ATACMS, the 190-mile-range tactical ballistic missiles, urgently requested by Zelensky to destroy Russian forces in Crimea and other Russian-held territory ‘anytime soon,’ officials say. News comes one day before Zelensky visits Biden at the White House."
Friday 9/22/23 this was the new story:
​  But on Friday it was revealed that as Zelensky visited the Oval Office the day prior, President Biden told him he's willing provide long-range ATACMS surface-to-surface missiles for the first time. But perhaps displaying the administration's reluctance on the issue, this is being reported as a "limited" or "small number" - according to officials.
"Officials said that a small number of ATACMS will be sent in coming weeks and more could be provided later."

​  Senator Rand Paul:  Ukraine “isn’t a democracy. It’s a corrupt regime.”
​  “We are about $1.5 trillion dollars in debt for this year. Over the last three months we’ve accumulated almost a trillion dollars in three months. The total is $33 trillion, so we don’t have like an extra rainy day fund or a surplus we can send them,” Paul further urged.
​  The Senator added, “We have to borrow the money from China to send to Ukraine, so no matter what your sympathies are in the war, and I am sympathetic to Ukraine fighting off the Russian aggressors, but at the same time I think it’s irresponsible to think about their country before I think about my country.”
  They want to separate out funding for the war in Ukraine so they can vote against it; things like that. These guys are clearly "trying to burn the whole place down".

  ​This "silent process" of the UN General Assembly was supposed to mean that anybody not-objecting was voting-for this resoultion, expected be be unanimously accepted. 11 countries objected, so they decided to just get the UN President to sign off on it anyway and go ahead with the plans. Please read this whole story for full details.
​  UN President Approves Pandemic Declaration — Privacy Experts Warn of ‘Digital Gulag’
​  Over the objections of 11 nations, the United Nations General Assembly president today approved a declaration on pandemic prevention that seeks to create a global pandemic authority. Critics said the declaration supports COVID-19-style restrictions, including “closing schools and disproportionately throwing women out of work and into poverty.”

​  The United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly (UNGA) president today approved the non-binding U.N declaration on Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response (PPPR), without a full assembly vote and over the objections of 11 nations.
​  Critics called the declaration, which seeks to create a global pandemic authority with the power to enforce lockdowns, universal vaccination and censorship of “misinformation,” “hypocrisy” and “unhinged.”​ ...
..[Can you figure out what this means? Speaking in riddles for those-in-the-know?]   In a statement, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “If COVID-19 taught us nothing else, it’s that when health is at risk, everything is at risk.” He linked the PPPR to the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), saying world leaders should “show they have learned the painful lessons of the pandemic.”​ ...
..Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy, told The Defender it is “very worrying” that the U.N. and WHO “will further encourage, if not actually authorize, the kind of standing capability or authority on their part to essentially dictate what constitutes emergencies.”
​  “There’s no getting around the fact that it’s going to come at the expense of the sovereignty of the various nations that will subsequently be told that they have an emergency and told what they have to do about it,” he added. “This is unprecedented.”
​  Gostin said “Negotiators are at a loss” as to how to balance accountability and sovereignty when implementing instruments like the PPPR, IHR or “pandemic treaty.”
​  Writing for the Brownstone Institute, Dr. David Bell, a public health physician, biotech consultant and former director of Global Health Technologies at Intellectual Ventures Global Good Fund, said “the main aim” of the PPPR “is to back” the “pandemic treaty” and IHR amendments currently under negotiation by WHO member states.
​  Bell said a “silence procedure” is in place, “meaning that States not responding will be deemed supporters of the text.” He said the text is “clearly contradictory, sometimes fallacious, and often quite meaningless,” and intended to centralize the WHO’s power.
​  Francis Boyle, J.D., Ph.D., a bioweapons expert and professor of international law at the University of Illinois who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, agreed. “The same people who drafted the pandemic treaty and the IHR amendments drafted the PPPR document,” Boyle told The Defender.
​  “This is a full-court press to have the entirety of the United Nations Organization, its specialized agencies and its affiliated organizations, back up and support their proposed globalist WHO worldwide totalitarian medical and scientific police state,” he said.​..
..According to ​[Treaty Analyst James] Roguski, the PPPR declaration is one of “four tracks that are important to pay attention to right now” — along with the IHR amendments adopted in May 2022, which he says “need to be rejected by the end of November,” the new IHR amendments and the “pandemic treaty” (formally named the WHO CA+ Framework Convention).
​  Roguski told The Defender that the May 2024 target date for adoption of the IHR amendments and “pandemic treaty” at the WHO’s World Health Assembly is in jeopardy due to the objecting nations — a view shared by Gostin, who said the May 2024 deadline is “pushing it” but noting that “the reason for speed is compelling.”
​  Roguski said the PPPR negotiations were conducted in “secrecy” and noted the PPPR declaration “is silent” regarding efforts to develop a Global Digital Health Certification Network — which would establish a global framework for “vaccine passports” and other types of health certificates to be implemented.
​  Roguski said that rather than calling for gain-of-function research to end, the PPPR supports funding WHO efforts “to implement a Pathogen Access and Benefits Sharing System.” He said this “increases the risk of the spread of deadly pathogens, by design.”

  ​James Roguski broke this news and listed the countries Wednesday. We need to hope that legal procedures are followed, though "they" clearly want to ram this through.
​  Broken Silence​ Eleven countries have formally objected to the political declarations that were scheduled to be adopted during the High Level Meetings (HLM) at the annual United Nations General Assembly.
​  The objections were conveyed in a letter dated 17 September 2023 to the President of the UN General Assembly H.E. Dennis Francis that was signed by the permanent representatives of the following countries: Belarus​, Bolivia​, Cuba​, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea​, Eritrea​, Islamic Republic of Iran​, Nicaragua​, Russian Federation​, Syrian Arab Republic​, Venezuela​, Zimbabwe

​  Meryl Nass MD ,  In order to help push the pandemic treaty forward, the UN attempted to get consensus; failed; and is now spinning the declaration as "approved"--but only by the General Assembly's prez, not the General Assembly.
