Nuclear Holocaust Mitigates Bankruptcy


  The Real Global Agenda Pushing for War with China
, by Cynthia Chung, starts with China's 1849-1949 "century of humiliation", but I always get stuck on The City of London Corporation. Any country that does not pay-tribute to "The Corporation" is a "threat to its interests".  I sent this out a couple of summers ago. Here it is again. Thanks Jane.
  Though the (City of London) Corporation’s origins cannot be specifically dated, since there was never a “surviving” charter found establishing its “legal” basis, it has kept its functions to this day based on the Magna Carta. The Magna Carta is a charter of rights agreed to by King John in 1215, which states that “the City of London shall have/enjoy its ancient liberties”. In other words, the legal function of the Corporation has never been questioned, reviewed, re-evaluated EVER but rather it has been left to legally function as in accordance with their “ancient liberties”, which is a very grey description of function if you ask me. In other words, they are free to do as they deem fit...
..In the 1950s, to “adapt” to the changing global financial climate, the City of London set up what are called “secrecy jurisdictions”. These were to operate within the last remnants of Britain’s small territories/colonies. Of Britain’s 14 oversea territories, 7 are bona fide tax havens or “secrecy jurisdictions”. A separate international financial market was also created to facilitate the flow of this offshore money, the Eurodollar market. Since this market has its banks outside of the UK and U.S., they are not under the jurisdiction of either country.
  By 1997, nearly 90% of all international loans were made through this market[2].
  John Christensen, an investigative economist, estimates that this capital that legally belongs to nobody could amount to as high as $50 trillion within these British territories. Not only is this not being taxed, but a significant portion of it has been stolen from sectors of the real economy...
..Worldwide, it is estimated that developing countries lose $1 trillion every year in capital flight and tax evasion. Most of this wealth goes back into the UK and U.S. through these offshore havens, and allows their currencies to stay strong whilst developing nations’ currencies are kept weak.
  However, developing nations are not the only ones to have suffered from this system of looting. The very economies of the UK and U.S. have also been gutted. In the 1960s and onward, the UK and U.S., to compensate for the increase in money flow out of their countries decided that it was a good idea to open their domestic markets to the trillions of dollars passing through its offshore havens.
  However, such banks are not interested in putting their money into industry and manufacturing. They put their money into real estate speculation, financial speculation and foreign currency trade. And thus, the financialization of British and American economies resulted, and the real jobs coming from the real economy decreased or disappeared.
  Although many economists try to claim differently, the desperation has boiled over. We have reached a point now where every western first world country is struggling with a much higher unemployment rate and a significantly lower standard of living than 40 years ago. Along with increased poverty has followed increased drug use,
increased suicide and increased crime...
..Why are China’s international relations seen as a threat to U.S. national security? The short answer to this is competition, and the slightly longer answer is that China is forming an alliance of countries against the economic strait jacket that was first imposed by the British Empire under its free trade doctrine and which is enforced today in the interests of the Anglo-American Empire.

  A CIVILIZATION BEYOND REALITY , Gaius Baltar  [Not long. Here is his summary.]
  Based on this (somewhat speculative) analysis, a global war is unavoidable. It will be a full-spectrum war the West will fight – not for the existence of western civilization – but for its subjugation and destruction. It is perhaps the first war in history where a civilization fights a war so it can safely commit suicide. We are actually there.

  Ron Paul,  Biden’s Tariffs Are Another Nail in the Dollar’s Coffin  
  Last year, China and Saudi Arabia agreed to expand their use of their own currencies in trade between the two countries. This is the first time the Saudis have agreed to use a currency other than the dollar for the oil trade since Henry Kissinger negotiated a deal where the Saudis would trade exclusively in dollars in return for US support for the Saudi regime. The “petrodollar” is a major reason why the dollar retained the world reserve currency status after President Nixon severed the last link between the dollar and gold.
  If the dollar loses its world reserve currency status, the US government would lose the ability to “weaponize the dollar.” Other countries would then have less incentive to abide by US demands, including related to regime changes. It would also reduce other countries’ interest in purchasing US debt instruments. This would increase pressure on the Federal Reserve to monetize the debt, creating more price inflation and leading to a major economic crisis. This will not just end the US military and financial empire abroad. It will also end the welfare state at home.

  ECB tells banks to ‘get out of Russia’Italian lenders must quit the country to avoid a “reputational problem,” a European Central Bank policymaker has warned
The risk of a US crackdown has reportedly spurred the ECB to up the pressure on European financial institutions still working in Russia.
  Apart from RBI, UniCredit, and Intesa Sanpaolo, a number of other EU banks – notably the Dutch lender ING, Germany’s Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank, Hungary’s OTP Bank, and Sweden’s SEB –maintain a presence in the Russian market despite Western sanctions.
  According to the Financial Times, the regulator has sent letters to lenders with a request for an “action plan” to fold their business in Russia as early as June.
  Earlier this month Reuters reported that the US Treasury had threatened to cut off Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI)’s access to the American financial system due to its activities in Russia. RBI said it would start withdrawing in the third quarter of this year following pressure from the ECB.

  Russia And Iran Under Threat From The South | France Allowed The Attack. Military Summary 2024.05.29  At the beginning, Dima makes the point that the strategic Russian  early-warning installations which were successfully hit by Ukraine with drones in recent days do not cover Russia's border with Ukraine, or Russia's  exposure to Europe at all, but rather cover the airspace between Russia and Iran, making both Russia and Iran more vulnerable to nuclear strikes from places like Bahrain, for instance.
  When France's President Macron says that Ukrainians should be allowed to use western weapons to strike Russia, he means the French and NATO operators of those weapons, "secretly" in Ukraine, can go ahead and kill Russian civilians, hit their strategic nuclear defenses, and so on...

Kremlin Claims 'NATO Training For Nuclear Strike On Russian Territory'

  A veteran US military observer is not sanguine about the rationality of the US and British officers directing Ukrainian operations. He warns that the British, and also the CIA, have an inordinate faith in special operations to turn the tide, and in their own cleverness to think them up. “What we’re seeing — with Israel, too,” according to this source, “is years of impunity resulting in an epic, murderous tantrum that’s having the opposite of its intended effect. It’s certainly not beyond either of them to play nuclear chicken. Most people would say that if you do that, you’re insane. But they think a special operation playing nuclear chicken with the Russians is clever, potentially effective.”
  “And so I think there’s going to be a nuclear war. The people who run things in the West have made up their minds that if they can’t rule, there will be nothing to rule. I guess we must figure now whether British and Ukrainian madness will prevail over US cowardice.”

  Gilbert Doctorow, Ukrainian strikes on Russian early warning radar installations: a strategic blow or an irrelevancy?
  I am obliged to say a few words about the press conference which Vladimir Putin held at Tashkent airport on Monday at the conclusion of what appears to have been a very successful three day visit to Uzbekistan with a large government and business delegation.  Meeting with representatives of the Russian media, he addressed directly the idea suggested by Jens Stoltenberg, by David Cameron and now by Emanuel Macron that Ukraine should be given free hands to do what it will with the long range attack missiles and other hardware being supplied to it by the NATO countries, meaning it should be allowed to strike deep into Russian Federation territory to destroy military bases there.
  Putin directed attention to the utter falseness of this concept, saying that these weapons all require space based reconnaissance data for targeting that Ukraine does not possess but is receiving from French, German, US and other military personnel. In effect, the missiles are targeted by NATO officers who may also push the launch button, if this is not left to the Ukrainians, who may not even be aware where the missiles are heading.
  By saying this, Putin has pulled away the fig leaf of NATO’s supposed non-co-belligerent status.  This is an entirely new messaging from Moscow and it is just a hair’s breadth away from declaration of war.
  At the same time, Putin spoke directly to the leaders of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, reminding them that they are really very small countries with very dense populations and that they should think twice before declaring, as the Prime Minister of Estonia did last week, that the task now is ‘to bring Russia to its knees.’   His remarks may be described as a direct threat to wipe the Baltics from the face of the earth.
  Who now insists that Putin’s mildness and restraint give cause for misjudging his readiness to defend Russian sovereignty whatever the cost?

  Alastair Crooke, The brink of dissolution: Neurosis in the West as the levee breaks
  The western thought processes, Lavrov said, are veering round dangerously to “the contours of the formation of a European military alliance – with a nuclear component”. Lavrov lamented that “they have made a choice in favour of a showdown on the battlefield: We are ready for this”. “The agenda to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia militarily and otherwise – is pure fantasy and it will be resolutely countered”...
..With the U.S. unable to exit or to moderate its determination to preserve its hegemony, Lavrov sees the prospect for increased western weapons provision for Ukraine. The discourse of military escalation is in fashion in Europe (of that there is no doubt); but both in the Middle East and Ukraine, western policy is in deep trouble.

Led Zeppelin - When The Levee Breaks

  NATO descending into ‘wartime ecstasy’ – KremlinThe US-led bloc has been long-involved in hostilities with Russia despite claiming otherwise, Dmitry Peskov says          He was speaking in response to the military bloc’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg advocating the removal of restrictions on use of Western weaponry by Ukraine.
  Stoltenberg’s remarks can be only considered as the official stance of the entire US-led military bloc and Russia will respond accordingly, Peskov told the Izvestia newspaper on Monday.  “This cannot be his personal opinion. He is an official, he is the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and that is how we perceive it. NATO is increasing the degree of escalation, NATO is flirting with warlike rhetoric, falling into 'wartime ecstasy.' This is the reality we have to continue to deal with,” Peskov stated.

  THE BRITISH ECONOMIC TRAP – A SEEDS ANALYSIS  [My comment that Andrew Bridgen says "Rishi refuses to be a wartime prime minister" was not accepted.]
As others have noted, there’s been something almost surreal about the opening phases of the British general election campaign.
Premier Rishi Sunak, firing the starting-gun for the 4th July contest outside 10 Downing Street, had no umbrella to ward off a torrential downpour of rain...
..For the average British person – as, indeed, for his or her counterparts in much of the world – the result has been that the costs of necessities per capita have been rising, whilst his or her share of national material prosperity has been decreasing.  Between 2003 and 2023, British aggregate prosperity increased by just 3.4%, whilst population numbers expanded by 14%, leaving the average person worse off by 9.5%.

  UK Ambassador Craig Murray, Genocide in Rafah and the ICJ
  It is difficult to imagine a more depraved, brutal and cowardly act than bombing refugee families in their tents, but I think we now all understand there is no moral depth which the terrorist entity that is Israel will not plumb.
  I think you know I have been regularly crying hot tears over the slaughter of innocents and the complicity of the western states. I hope that you will understand it is not from indifference to the unspeakable suffering, that I respond with a disquisition on grammar.
  There was an extraordinary unanimity across the entire mainstream media in giving the same misrepresentation of the recent ICJ Order to Israel to stop operations in Gaza.  How does it happen that both media and political class unite in pumping out the same misinterpretation of a document, when that interpretation is not only wrong but impossible?
  We are told that the ICJ did not unambiguously order Israel to stop its operations in Rafah, but left “wiggle room” for Israel to conduct operations in a surgical manner without endangering civilians.
  The propaganda line goes that Israel was only ordered to halt its offensive insofar as it may cause conditions that could endanger the Palestinian group as a whole.
But what the court said is this:
  Israel must immediately halt its military offensive, and any other action in the Rafah Governorate, which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.

  Revealed: Israeli spy chief ‘threatened’ ICC prosecutor over war crimes inquiry
  The former head of the Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence agency, allegedly threatened a chief prosecutor of the international criminal court in a series of secret meetings in which he tried to pressure her into abandoning a war crimes investigation, the Guardian can reveal.
  Yossi Cohen’s covert contacts with the ICC’s then prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, took place in the years leading up to her decision to open a formal investigation into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in occupied Palestinian territories.
  That investigation, launched in 2021, culminated last week when Bensouda’s successor, Karim Khan, announced that he was seeking an arrest warrant for the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, over the country’s conduct in its war in Gaza.

  Russia Is Preparing To Strategically Partner With The Taliban, Andrew Korybko
  The driving force for removing the Taliban’s terrorist designation and inviting it to next month’s investment forum is the desire to make tangible progress on reaching a strategic energy deal with Pakistan, which would complete its Ummah Pivot and Greater Eurasian Partnership...
..Russia’s previous threat perception of the Taliban has disappeared, and it now considers the group to be a regional security provider with respect to containing ISIS-K. Moreover, Afghanistan’s location enables it to facilitate Russian trade with Pakistan, both commercial and energy. These interests have combined to inspire Russia to more openly embrace this group, which comes ahead of next month’s investment forum and October’s BRICS Summit...
..Russia sees Afghanistan as an indispensable part of its larger geostrategic reorientation to Muslim-majority countries, while the Taliban believes that Russia can help their country preemptively avert potentially disproportionate dependence on China and especially Pakistan...
..Something big is obviously in the works between them judging by the timing of Russia’s deliberations on removing the Taliban from its terrorist list just before next week’s St. Petersburg International Investment Forum. In all likelihood, not only does Russia expect to make progress on its reportedly planned Afghan oil hub, but there might even be an update about President Putin’s envisaged delivery of Russian pipeline gas to Pakistan through Afghanistan that he mentioned only once in September 2022.

  The release of fresh details of the fatal helicopter flight on May 19 which killed Iran’s President, Ebrahim Raisi, and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian is ruling out bad weather, machine failure, signals interference, on-board bomb or ground-fired missile as the cause of the crash. Iranian civilian, military and clerical officials are also excluding Israeli or US involvement.
  Instead, Raisi’s chief of staff, Gholam-Hossein Esmaeili, a civilian lawyer and Raisi loyalist for many years,  has described a sequence of details, preceding and following the incident, which hint at suicide murder by one of the pilots of the presidential aircraft...
.."At the end of the day, a significant part of the documents related to the helicopter crash have been collected and for some parts and documents, more time is needed, which after the evaluation and expert work and more detailed expertise will be heard in the next announcements and heard by the noble and revolutionary nation of Iran; therefore, [the Army] demands that  inexpert comments based on speculation without any accurate knowledge of the reality of the scene or sometimes under direction of foreign media in cyberspace should not be published.”  
  The warning at the end of the General Staff report has been ignored by the oppositionist Iranian media organization, Iran International TV, which is hinting that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) plotted to kill the president. Iran International is an anti-clerical, anti-regime publication based in London and Washington,  and reportedly financed by Saudi Arabia.

  Was Blinken intentionally saying "gotcha"?  Blinken’s blunders epitomize the bankruptcy of U.S. power and diplomacy
  As the Iranian nation mourned the tragic death of President Ebrahim Raisi this week, the United States could not even muster a respectful offer of condolence.
  The U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, officially that country’s top diplomat, made a crass remark that the Iranian people would be “better off”. This as the Islamic Republic had declared five days of mourning for the late president whose funeral in the city of Mashhad was attended by millions of Iranians...
..On Blinken’s insult over the Iranian president’s death, Russia’s presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed the disgust of many observers around the world when he said: “It is hard to believe that a diplomat — let alone a high-ranking official of a country such as the United States — would make such a clumsy remark, to say the least. In essence, it was an insult directed at an entire nation.”
  Apart from the lack of human decency, there is a total lack of politics. Blinken’s offensive comment comes at a moment of extreme tension in the Middle East amid a genocide perpetrated by the Israeli regime with support from the United States. The powder-keg situation could explode at any time into an international war engulfing the entire region. Israel and Iran have already exchanged military blows.
  All diplomats worth their salt should be trying to calm tensions, not inflame them. Blinken’s contemptible insult to the Iranian people is a reckless provocation...  
..(Words mean what he wants them to mean, right?)  Last week, the “top diplomat” embarrassed his office by playing guitar on stage in a bar during an official visit to Kiev. Blinken was in the Ukrainian capital promising billions of dollars more in military aid to prolong a bloody and futile proxy war against Russia. Reliable estimates put the Ukrainian military death toll at over 500,000 in over two years of combat. Yet, here was Blinken strumming electric guitar with a local rock band. Even more cringe-making was his choice of song, Neil Young’s ‘Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World’. Not only was Blinken tone deaf to the horror of war, but he was oblivious to the fact that the song is an explicit condemnation of American imperialist barbarity.

  U.S. Bankrolling Creation of Deadlier, More Contagious Bird Flu Strains
  U.S. health officials only recently admitted to funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China — but for decades, the U.S. government has funded the same type of dangerous research on bird flu in the U.S.
  And that research continues today.
  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — even the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — have funded or are funding research to make bird flu more pathogenic and/or more transmissible in mammals.

  Negotiations For The Global Pandemic Treaty Have Broken Down, But Fear Of What Is Coming Next May Revive Them
  The World Health Organization was hoping that there would be a vote on the global pandemic treaty at the World Health Assembly at the end of this month, but now that is not going to happen.  Negotiations that were supposed to result in a final draft of the treaty have completely broken down, and that is great news because the treaty would have transferred a tremendous amount of authority to the World Health Organization.  But if dengue fever continues to rip across the globe like it has been, or if H5N1 mutates into a form that can spread easily from person to person, fear of what is coming next could potentially revive the negotiations...
..The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a summary on Friday that it is preparing for the “possibility of increased risk to human health” from bird flu following an outbreak among dairy cows and two confirmed human cases.
  H5N1 has already resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of birds over the past couple of years, but as long as it wasn’t affecting humans most people weren’t too concerned.
  Well, now it has been infecting cows all over the country, and 19 of 23 wastewater sites in Texas recently tested positive for the virus…
  In Texas, for example, 19 out of 23 wastewater sites were found to contain traces of the virus between early March and the end of April, according to Texas Wastewater Environmental Biomonitoring. Meanwhile, the state has some 400 dairy farms, and just 14 herds have tested positive for bird flu to date, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
  The bird flu has also been showing up in grocery store milk from coast to coast, but experts insist that we should not be concerned because the virus is killed by the pasteurization process.
  But officials are warning us not to drink raw milk because they believe that it could “make you very sick”…

  HHS to Produce 4.8M Bird Flu Vaccines as 2 New Human Cases Identified   (Will you take this kind of bait?)
  HHS is preparing 4.8 million H5N1 bird flu vaccine doses amid reports of two new human cases in Michigan and Australia. Meanwhile, the CDC this week urged health officials nationwide to ramp up flu surveillance.
  The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported that the H5 avian flu case in a dairy farm worker was identified through ongoing public health actions, which allowed farm workers to monitor and notify health officials if they developed symptoms, CIDRAP reported.
  Reporting on only the second human case of bird flu infection this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the worker’s nasal swab tested negative for H5 influenza. But an eye swab tested positive, suggesting an eye infection similar to a previous case in Texas, reported in April.
  Meanwhile, Michigan’s agriculture department reported another H5N1 avian flu outbreak in a dairy herd, bringing the total number of affected farms in the state to 19. The latest outbreak occurred in Gratiot County, where the virus was found at three other dairy farms earlier in the week.

​  Employee Sues Hospital That Fired Her for Reporting COVID Vaccine Injuries to VAERS
A physician’s assistant is suing a New York hospital system, alleging it violated the federal False Claims Act by failing to complete mandatory reporting to VAERS of injuries associated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
​  Conrad told The Defender, she hopes the lawsuit will lead to changes in how vaccine adverse events are reported.
“How can anybody trust the vaccine program when medical professionals are not adhering to the reporting requirements of the one system we have in place that is meant to assure us that these things are safe?” she asked.​ “I want policy change. I don’t care about the money, the vindication. I want to be able to trust the health system,” Conrad said.​..
​..The hospital not only failed to report cases, it blocked Conrad from submitting approximately 170 reports of serious adverse events to VAERS between May 27 and Oct. 6, 2021, Conrad said.
​  The hospital system also failed to report over 12,000 adverse events, the complaint alleges.
​  Mendenhall said they estimated that number based on the number of people vaccinated at one of the healthcare facilities or another nearby clinic who then presented at the hospital for treatment for an injury that was likely linked to the vaccine.​

​  ‘Absolutely Tragic’: 38-Year-Old COVID Patient Refused to Sign DNR Five Times Before He Died
​  A 38-year-old cancer patient who developed COVID-19 was pressured five times in 24 hours to sign a DNR order. He refused, but he died after the hospital administered a combination of midazolam and morphine, usually reserved for end-of-life care, according to his wife who testified in Scotland’s COVID-19 inquiry. On a recent episode of his YouTube show, medical commentator John Campbell, Ph.D., shared the “absolutely tragic” testimony of Lianne Menzies about the death of her 38-year-old husband, Jamie, after he was diagnosed with COVID-19.
​  The segment is part of Campbell’s coverage of Scotland’s ongoing COVID-19 Inquiry, which includes testimony from government officials and Scottish citizens affected by the country’s COVID-19 response.
​  The independent inquiry, which concluded testimonies today after more than 50 days, is investigating failures in Scotland’s response — including how hospitals administered dangerous end-of-life protocols when they may not have been necessary.
​  When Jamie was admitted to the Monklands Hospital Airdrie in March 2020, he had been undergoing intense cancer treatment. Healthcare providers suspected he had contracted COVID-19.Given his cancer history, Jamie was asked to sign a DNR, which “terrified him,” Menzies said.
​  He refused, but the hospital staff continued to press him, asking him to sign the DNR five times within 24 hours. He refused each time and begged his wife never to sign one for him.
​  Such practices are “completely unacceptable,” said Campbell, who has a Ph.D. in nursing and over four decades of clinical experience. “We should not be terrifying our patients. This is not good clinical care.”
​  A doctor later diagnosed Jamie with COVID-19, but said he was improving. He was up and around, joking and seemed well in their Facetime chat, Menzies testified.
The next day, she said, hospital staff asked her if she understood that Jamie was going to die. They gave him midazolam, a strong benzodiazepine, to sleep. She was shocked
[Midazolam, "Versed" is a high-potency ​benzodiazepine, related to Xanax and Valium, injected to put people to sleep before general surgery. When Anesthesiologists commit suicide, their most ​favored method is to give themselves an IV of midazolam w​ith fentanyl, which works like morphine.]
​  Campbell, whose previous show outlined the dangerous and often unnecessary combination of midazolam and morphine administered to many COVID-19 patients as “end-of-life” care, said he has never seen midazolam given to help someone sleep.
​  That night, Jamie and Lianne were married by the hospital chaplain. The next day, the staff called Lianne back to the hospital because “It was time.”
She said Jamie was screaming and terrified because he couldn’t breathe. They administered a rotation of midazolam and morphine and he died.​

Nuclear Chicken

 Probably Redundant,

  A way to look at history and politics is that a few people who wield power in our world through money, and the influence it can bring, do whatever they foresee to further their power going forward, and politicians find ways to explain why it all had to happen for other "complicated reasons". I have seen no evidence that oil + natural-gas-liquids, net-of-production-costs, ever matched its high point in late 2018, and net oil production has a 90% correlation with real economy. What we have seen since then is what peak "oil" looks like, just as what we saw in 2008 was what "peak oil" (2005-2006) turned out to look like. The interests of the powerful now involve drastically less resource use by their managed-populations. Dead people don't use anything, for instance. Dead retirees are a particularly good outcome in wealth-management. 
  The over-leveraged global financial system will soon "discover" massive losses. They need to be somebody else's fault. Putin will do, and Xi, too. War-time!

  Alex Krainer, Downfall: the empire's destiny , As impressive as empires appear in their zenith, without exception, they all collapse.
  I was recently introduced to “The Great Red Dragon,” by L. B. Woolfolk, published in 1890. In broad strokes, the book documents the takeover of the American economy by British banking interests. Their methods entailed periodically flooding the economy with credit and generating a boom. Then, when the bankers' nets were full and everyone was in debt, the bankers would abruptly withdraw credit. The practice was simply predatory.
  The triggering event usually involved a high-profile bank failure, which would cause an economy-wide avalanche of bankruptcies. Large, politically connected banks would then take over choice businesses, farmland and real estate for pennies on the dollar. Within our lifetimes, the Lehman Brothers’ failure in 2008 would have been a typical example of this, but Covid pandemic response in 2020 served the same predatory purpose...
..But even by the time “The Great Red Dragon” was published, British bankers’ colossal empire was already well past peak and had begun its irreversible decline. The gushing, self-congratulatory 1864 pamphlet about the unassailable British hegemony was a reflection of that era's groupthink about their own version of "full spectrum dominance" and the "end of history."
  But then as now, as impressive as empires appear in their zenith, they are always unsustainable. The whole business model just simply doesn't work and without exception always leads to failure.

  Professor Anthony Hall,  The Puppeteers Running Biden and Velensky Arrange Attack on Russia's System for Detecting Nuclear Attack
Zionist Psychopaths Transgress Another Russian Red Line in the Escalating Effort to Provoke a Global Nuclear Holocaust. Essay by Mike Whitney.
  The Biden administration, using its proxy forces in Ukraine, launched an unprecedented attack on “a key element of Russia’s nuclear umbrella” on Thursday effectively blinding the Russian military from detecting incoming nuclear-armed ballistic missiles. “Satellite imagery confirms” that multiple drones severely damaged “a Russian strategic early warning radar site in the southwestern end of the country” leaving Moscow more vulnerable to enemy attack.
  The western media has largely blacked-out any coverage of the incident which should have been presented in headlines across the country. According to Russian nuclear doctrine, any attack on Russia’s essential nuclear first-alert system provides a justification for nuclear retaliation. Given the gravity of the situation we must assume that Washington’s frustration with Ukraine’s performance on the battlefield has precipitated a dramatic change in policy that includes high-risk provocations aimed at triggering an overreaction that leads to direct NATO intervention.

The Great Atomic Power Lyrics
[Verse 1]
Do you fear this man's invention that they call atomic power?
Are we all in great confusion, do we know the time or hour?

When a terrible explosion may rain down upon our land
Leaving horrible destruction, blotting out the works of man
Are you, are you ready for that great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry when the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for that great atomic power?

[Verse 2]
There is one way to escape it, be prepared to meet the lord
Give your heart and soul to Jesus, he will be your shielding sword
He will surely stay beside you and you'll never taste of death
For your soul will fly to safety and eternal peace and rest
Are you, are you ready for that great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry when the fire rains from on high?
Are you ready for that great atomic power?
[Verse 3]
There's an army who can conquer all the enemy's great band
It's the regiment of Christians guided by the savior's hand
When the mushroom of destruction falls in all its fury great
God will surely save his children from that awful awful fate

Are you, are you ready for that great atomic power?
Will you rise and meet your savior in the air?
Will you shout or will you cry when the fire rains from on high?

  Essentially, the US wants Russia to stand down from its signaled intent of possibly using tactical nuclear weapons if NATO’s reportedly 100,000-strong invasion force crosses the Dnieper, which could occur if Russia achieves a military breakthrough.
  Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski revealed in his latest interview with The Guardian that “The Americans have told the Russians that if you explode a nuke, even if it doesn’t kill anybody, we will hit all your targets [positions] in Ukraine with conventional weapons, we’ll destroy all of them. I think that’s a credible threat.” If true, and there’s no reason to suspect that he simply made that up, then this amounts to the US playing a dangerous game of nuclear chicken with Russia...

..If this sequence of events unfolds – the front lines collapse, NATO conventionally intervenes in Ukraine, its reportedly 100,000-strong invasion force crosses the Dnieper, Russia drops tactical nukes on them, and then the US hits all of its forces in the newly unified regions – then World War III would break out. There’s no way that Russia would sit back and let the US directly attack any target within its borders since it’ll either respond in a tit-for-tat fashion or jump to the chase by launching a nuclear first strike.
  The only way to avoid this worst-case scenario is for NATO to eschew its invasion plans under any circumstances, including a potential Russian military breakthrough. If they still go through with them, however, then they should keep their forces on the western side of the Dnieper and ideally rely on a neutral mediator like India to convey to Russia that they don’t intend to cross even if they approach it. Anything less is a dangerous game of nuclear chicken that could literally provoke the apocalypse.

  European leader warns world ‘heading for disaster’
The Ukrainian conflict could spiral into a global war that would be a “greater tragedy than World War II,” Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic warns
  “I am afraid that there is little time left for the war in Ukraine to be stopped. I hope it's still possible, but I’m afraid it’s actually not. I’m afraid that the train has already left the station, started moving, and no one will stop it,” he said.

  Simplicius 5/25/24, SITREP: Situation Turns Critical as De-legitimized Zelensky Dangerously Escalates
  A narrative overload has swelled around the topic of allowing Ukrainian strikes on Russian soil. It has suddenly become the top coordinated focus for the entire deepstate establishment...
..You have to really read between the lines to understand the hidden layers of what’s going on: such heavily coordinated campaigns are never spontaneous but almost always part of a deeply thought out strategic shift to veer the war in a new direction.
  The reason is obvious: Ukraine is at a crossroads and a potential breaking point. The political situation has hit rock bottom, with Zelensky’s authority and legitimacy quickly unspooling; the manpower issue is reportedly very bad and is not being addressed by the newly announced mobilization...
..There are increasing signals that the covert plan from the globalist controllers is to get Ukraine to leave Russia with no choice but to escalate drastically and bring NATO in some form, whether limited or not, into the fight. British MP Andrew Bridgen stated that this is the real reason why Rishi Sunak has called an early election—he refuses to be a ‘war time president’. ["We're already in a war with Russia; they're just not ready to announce it yet... July or August."]...
..“Taurus missiles are already in Ukraine, their combat use is a matter of time. Berlin is just waiting for instructions to announce this,” said the author of the expert analytical project “Rybar”, assessing the statements of the British Minister of Defense.
  Previously, military experts reported that deliveries of weapons (including ATACMS and Storm Shadow | Scalp missiles) are always carried out before talk of “quick deliveries” begins. Also, a colossal scandal was caused by the leak of negotiations between the Bundeswehr leadership about the launch of “dozens of Taurus across the Crimean Bridge by the hands of NATO military.”
  In addition, Western military analysts noted that Taurus missiles will be able to fly from the Sumy region of Ukraine to the capital of Russia - Moscow and other cities, factories, etc. [Russia has just begun a military theater to take the Sumy area.]...
..You might be thinking this is all just speculative hearsay and threadpulling thus far. But Russia has clearly read the tea leaves and signaled in kind, as the defense ministry announced they would be conducting an unprecedented series of tactical nuclear exercises... Russia may have no choice but to bring much more devastating weaponry to bear...
..But why should Russia suddenly worry about this? Ukraine has been attempting to strike Russian targets for a while now without much success. Well, because now Ukraine is having serious success...  Russian S-400’s troubles against the ATACMS missile: the problems have gotten much worse for Russia. S-400s are now being regularly taken out to pasture by the barely stoppable ATACMS...  Three S-400 air defense systems, one S-300 air defense system, and several radars were lost. Also, more than 20 pieces of equipment that were being prepared to be sent to the SVO zone were damaged or completely lost. There is information about the loss of two Su-25 aircraft, but we do not have one hundred percent confirmation of this information; it still requires verification. As a result of the strike, 29 soldiers were killed and more than 35 were wounded...  this comes after another ATACMS strike hit Sevastopol port and reportedly sunk another Russian Corvette...
..But the mother of all provocations is that Ukraine has now attacked and damaged a strategic Russian early warning nuclear ICBM long range detection radar in Voronezh... This has the potential to cripple Russia’s ability to respond to nuclear threats, and effectively triggers 19c of Russia’s nuclear response doctrine:
  Paragraph 19c of the Basic Principles states: “attack by an adversary against critical governmental or military sites of the Russian Federation, disruption of which would undermine nuclear forces response actions”...
..Ukraine is now carrying out the slow de-arming and neutralization of Russia’s nuclear triad on behalf of NATO, which is an extremely existentially dangerous position for Russia to be in...
..All hell could break loose as Russia has not demonstrated the capability to stop the ATACMS reliably, and Ukraine could very well hit extremely sensitive targets that would put Russian command and control at a historic crossroads...
..The goal is clear: Zelensky and co. likely want Russia to respond with tactical nukes...
..Any Russian tactical nuke use would be merely demonstrative, anyway, and would not have much battlefield utility. Ukraine’s forces are not concentrated... I should say, one area where nukes would do wonders is taking out Ukrainian airfields. That may not kill many soldiers but would totally devastate large fields which almost no amount of conventional missiles can take out, preventing their future use not only for Ukraine’s own remaining air fleet but the planned F-16s...
..Russia could escalate without nukes, for instance finally clamping down on NATO surveillance flights and threatening to shoot down the drones over the Black Sea. This is actually a much larger deal than it seems: given that the U.S. has no real way of militarily responding to this, it would be a big humiliating black eye for NATO...
..Putin landed in Belarus with Belousov in tow, as well as some very interesting ‘mystery’ characters. Allow me to set the stage:
  First, Putin did invoke peace talks and settlement from Belarus, but he very specifically affirmed that Zelensky is no longer legitimate and that the Ukrainian parliament would have to essentially first find “someone” of legal constitutional repute that Russia can deal with...
..Putin is merely reaffirming that Russia will be open to talks with someone other than Zelensky, and as long as all of Russia’s aims are fulfilled... 
..Interestingly, it is rumored that Yanukovich, Ukraine’s last legitimately elected leader, was brought to Belarus—for the first time since the start of the SMO...  It is reported that Zelensky has lost legitimacy and now he is on a par with Yanukovych, who is also conventionally “president”... 
..Will Yanukovych really offer the Ukrainians peace, negotiations, the creation of a federation out of Ukraine and money from the Russian Federation in exchange for lost territories? Yanukovych will also hold elections in Ukraine. A referendum is also possible. An interesting scheme is emerging...
..Russia is now cleansing its entire military general staff structure in preparation for what is clearly a long conflict ahead...
..And countless governors and other officials have been arrested for various corruption charges over the past month or so...
..This is an unprecedented anti-corruption purge that is clearly the start of a new era and seriousness by Putin and Belousov in cleaning up the armed forces and country’s leadership in general... Many such generals and officials are carryovers from the 2000s era where corruption in the Russian military ranks was de rigueur. Not necessarily high level corruption, per se, but what was common was for instance generals simply utilizing the men from their units as free labor to build their dachas, and taking smallish bribes from construction companies for favorable deals, etc...
..Russia continues conditioning the ground for Zelensky’s illegitimacy. Lukashenko even said at today’s talks that “a lot will happen this year….there are plenty of people in Ukraine both in military and government who would like to take the leadership position.”  It’s clear the hint is that Russia is preparing the ground for an amenable party to wrest control by way of military coup or otherwise and depose Zelensky...

Big Serge, Russo-Ukrainian War: Widening the FrontThe Fifth Battle of Kharkov
  There are certain regions of the world that seemed destined by the cruel caprice of geography and chance to be perennial battlegrounds. Often these ravaged lands lay at the crossroads of imperial interests, as in the case of Afghanistan or Poland, which have been so frequently trampled by armies going this way or that, or else they are simply plagued by perennially unstable governance or roiling ethnic conflict. Sometimes, however, it is the peculiar logic of military operations that brings violence to the same place, again and again. One such notorious sufferer is the great industrial city of Kharkov, in northeastern Ukraine...
..No major city changed hands as many times in World War Two as did Kharkov, which became the scene of no less than four substantial battles... History does not repeat, as they say, but it does rhyme. Kharkov’s strategic position, as the great urban center blocking the inner bend of the northern Donets River, has not changed much in the eighty years since the Soviets and the Germans last fought in the forests here, and Kharkov Oblast is once more becoming the rope in a deadly game of tug of war.....In sum, the reopening of the Northern Front does not signal a qualitative change in the conduct of the war, but it does create a major stress on the AFU. Russia is not going to suddenly unlock the front and begin slicing mobile operations. This is still the same war that it has been for the last two years, with methodical positional fighting and paralyzing strike capabilities...
..The locus of Russian operations continues to be their grind towards Kramatorsk and Slovyansk, notwithstanding the new extensions of the front in Kharkov (and potentially Sumy). By stretching the front, however, Russia is powerfully synergizing two of the critical asymmetries in this war - namely, that Ukraine has to defend on every front (Russia does not) while the Russian army has substantial reserves on hand (while Ukraine does not). The AFU simply does not have the luxury that Russia enjoyed in 2022 of being able to withdraw from large sectors of the front. They are obliged to respond to everything, at the cost of denuding their strength and hollowing out their positions elsewhere...
..The headline move, of course, was the removal of Defense Minster Sergei Shoigu with Andrei Belousov. Belousov is a technocratic economist by trade, who formerly held the economic development portfolio in the cabinet. Shoigu was shunted over to the secretariat State Security Council, which is still a meaningful role, responsible for the coordination of Russia’s security organs. The fact that Shoigu retains a prominent role means that his removal from the Defense Ministry is not entirely a rebuff, but Belousov is clearly being brought in for a particular reason...
..Putin’s team is clearly aiming to put the war economy on a sustainable footing, which means controlling costs, economizing resources, and cracking down on corruption. There are, however, some conflicting signals as to what this will look like. Belousov is known as a believer in the state’s role as the driver of industrial policy - some have taken this to mean that he will lead the transition to a perennial war economy, with military spending as a critical economic driver in the long run. I rather think it’s the opposite. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov noted that Russia’s defense spending had soared to levels not seen since the late Soviet era, and pontificated that this needed monitoring. Peskov noted that “it’s very important to put the security economy in line with the economy of the country” - in effect an official statement that defense spending is much higher than the government would like in the long run.
  The mental picture that I have is one where defense spending ramped up in a somewhat uncontrolled manner as Russia kicked its war economy into gear, with Shoigu overseeing a sort of binging phase. Belousov is now being brought in to trim and economize; as a civilian technocrat, he is not connected to any of the military-industrial cliques and will have the political standoff required to manage the cutting phase..
..The track record shows that the American government will inexorably yield to every Ukrainian ask, given enough time. Abrams, F-16’s, ATACMs - Ukraine always ends up getting what it asks for. It seems likely that before long, the formal American blessing will be given to accelerate strikes on prewar Russia. Facilities inside Russia will be hit. The Kremlin’s response will underwhelm and infuriate its supporters on the internet.
  The problem for Ukraine is that they tend to maniacally focus on token “big ticket” items that do not ameliorate their broader strategic crisis. License to hurl ATACMs at targets inside Russia is not a panacea for Ukraine’s bigger problem. Ukraine has already showed the ability to hit Russian strategic assets - sniping naval installations, radar, and air defense batteries. Ukraine’s successful strikes on such assets have continually trickled in as the west has propped up their strike capability with Storm Shadows, ATACMs, and more. And yet, Ukraine continues to give ground in the Donbas amid an increasingly dire shortage of basic war making necessities like infantry.
  The trajectory of the war suggests that the NATO bloc will do everything in its power to prop up Ukraine’s strike capabilities, and that Ukraine will continue to hunt for high profile strategic assets, even as it continues to be ground down in the critical theater, which is the Donbas. When the AFU is finally ejected from their last toeholds along the line - losing Kramatorsk and Slovyansk, being squeezed out of southern Donetsk Oblast, and forced back on the west bank of the Oskil, the temptation in Kiev will be to blame the west - that they gave too little, too slowly, too late. This is one lie that they must not be allowed to get away with. The NATO Bloc has, virtually without exception, given Ukraine everything they’ve asked for. It just didn’t matter.

​  Gilbert Doctorow, In this morning’s interview on WION, India’s premier English-language global television channel, I was given the opportunity to comment on two of the key issues in yesterday’s international news:  the latest statement to the press by Hungarian premier Viktor Orban that Russia has no intention of attacking a NATO country; and President Putin’s offer to conclude a cease-fire and negotiate a settlement with Ukraine based on the present line of contact between the warring parties.
​  Doctorow: The escalation that is pending will be the introduction of F-16s into Ukraine, which is now talked about for July. And I think that we’re going to see some decisive moves by the Russians to prevent this happening, because it would be precisely a kind of trigger for a serious escalation and the risk of direct conflict with NATO countries.
​  The remark you made a few minutes ago that Russia could conceivably attack a NATO country, this coming from EU representatives, you have said that that is not in the cards. I don’t agree. It could very easily happen, but only if Russia is provoked in a way that demands a response. If, for example, the F-16s are flying from Moldova, from Romania or from Bulgaria into Ukrainian airspace and are attacking Russian positions, then I think it is entirely thinkable, entirely feasible that Russia would attack a NATO country.​..
..Well, I think it comes back to what the war is all about. And a couple of minutes ago, you said that such a settlement would fall short of Putin’s objectives from the start of the war. I disagree. Putin’s objectives from the start of the war were not territorial gains for Russia, and that is still the case. So I think his statement, his assertion yesterday– this took place during a press conference at his meetings with Lukashenko in Minsk– he answered a question of a journalist in the way that you described, that he would accept a settlement at the present line of conflict, that yes, indeed, that would mean that Russia accepts a solution that falls short of retaking or taking the entire Donbass.
​  However, territorial ambitions were never part of the Russian game plan. They had two objectives, and they are still underway. And that is denazification and demilitarization; to put it in other words, regime change in Ukraine. That remains the primary Russian objective. And if that means that they stop their offensive and freeze the conflict at the present territorial situation, that will be perfectly acceptable to Moscow.​

​  Simplicius, 5/27/24, NATO's Yipping Chihuahuas Strain Their Leash as Russia Gears Up for Next Wave
​  The ongoing effort being coordinated from the highest offices of the shadow deepstate of the Atlanticist West sees a major campaign of European/NATO pressure against Russia with threats of boots on the ground.​..
..Der Spiegel writes that the Baltics and Poland “will not wait” for Russian troops to be “deployed on their border” and would send troops to Ukraine if Russian forces achieve a major breakthrough...​ They continue to seed the ground with potential falseflag justifications for some type of war against Russia. This week, the new claim of ‘threat’ is Russia allegedly seeking to capture Finland’s Aland Island​... This is of course all part and parcel to the longstanding 3SI or Three Seas Initiative, the cabal’s plan to extend the Empire’s hegemony over all the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black Sea...
..Sure, it’s Russia that’s sabotaging everything, not the guys who did Nordstream.
​  The U.S. in the meantime has stepped up provocations of its own by flying nuclear bombers over the Baltics
in a clearly threatening continuation of the campaign to pressure and rattle Russia...
..Do you see how these gangsters operate? Is it any coincidence that just as their global cabal begins crumbling at speed we witness them resort to the furthest scale of desperate tactics? Iran’s entire ruling government taken out, Robert Fico shot, now Georgian PM being openly threatened with assassination; that’s likely just the tip of the iceberg we can see—many other resistance sphere leaders and politicians most likely face quieter threats which they don’t make public...
​..The ​(Russian) president also touched upon the civilian crowd-funded military manufacturers that have emerged amid the hostilities. The solutions they offer – such as radio-electronic warfare devices or sophisticated drones – must be fast-tracked for adoption by the military, the president said.
​  “We must also be effective when using assets supplied by the so-called grassroots defense manufacturing sector. We must enable it to develop and expand its manufacturing operations, and introduce a fast-track procedure for supplying its most effective solutions to the army,” Putin stated.
​  In essence, when independent Russian teams innovate and create something functional and effective, there will now be a much more fluid pipeline connecting their designs directly to the MIC which will allow the instantaneous scaling and mass production of the product. This includes the things which Russian engineering teams are cobbling together on the frontline itself.​..  Now, Russia has identified this precise pipeline as critical to future development and will do everything possible to nourish and support its actualization and growth; this is what a major part of Putin and Belousov’s new initiative is all about.​..
..In fact, this was part of a huge new initiative already launched, according to Manturov, which will entail a program for the years of 2025-2035. Critical to this sweeping initiative is the inter-marriage of Russia’s more ‘insular’ defense contractors with outside civilian developers that will loosen the innovation bottleneck.​..
​..If you watched the end of the Zelensky presentation posted at the outset of this report, you’d note that he reveals that Russia is building a sizable force “90km northwest of Kharkov”. This would put that force precisely opposite Sumy, slightly to its east...​ This may be the first time Zelensky has openly declared Russia’s intention to strike in Sumy region, which means that time is likely nigh.​

​  Pepe Escobar, Russia and China have had enough
​  Something very important happened earlier this week in Astana during the meeting of the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
​  Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi went straight to the point: he called for SCO members to “maintain their strategic autonomy”, and “never allow external forces” to turn Eurasia into a “geopolitical arena.”...
..After a series of extraordinary “coincidences” these past few weeks, from “lone gunman” assassination attempts to engineered coups, outright threats and mysterious disappearances, the whole BRICS-SCO ecosystem has to be on very high alert.
​  After the epic Putin-Xi summit in Beijing and the stranger than fiction Raisi helicopter drama, the renewed solidity of the interlocked Russia-China-Iran strategic partnerships is pointing to Russia-China about to take their velvet gloves off.
​  Putin and Xi, each in their own way, have already warned the collectively imbecilized West: if you want confrontation, you’re gonna get confrontation. In spades. And at your own peril.
​  The impeding Mother of All Tests, coming this summer, is how far NATO will go when it comes to directly attacking the Russian Federation. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban warns that “Europe is preparing to start a war with Russia”.​

​  TWITTER FILES - CIA​ , Inside a secret effort by the US Intelligence Community to seize control of social media , Michael Shellenberger, Matt Taibbi, Alex Gutentag
​  The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the most famous of the 18 US government agencies that comprise the Intelligence Community (IC) of the United States of America. Unlike the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), the law strictly prohibits CIA employees or contractors from spying upon or running clandestine operations against American citizens on US soil.
​  But now, a new Twitter Files investigation reveals that a member of the Board of Trustees of the CIA’s mission-driven venture capital firm and ostensibly “former” IC and CIA analysts were involved in a 2021-2022 effort to take over Twitter’s content management system.​..
..According to "thousands of pages of Twitter Files and documents," these efforts were part of a broader strategy to manage how information is disseminated and consumed on social media under the guise of combating 'misinformation' and foreign propaganda efforts - as this complex of government-linked individuals and organizations has gone to great lengths to suggest that narrative control is a national security issue.

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has found that pedestrians are twice as likely to be hit by an electric or hybrid car than by a gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicle.​.. (Researchers) have hypothesized that the relatively quiet operations of an electric vehicle as well as high pedestrian density in noisy urban areas could be major reasons, with pedestrians almost three times as likely to be hit by an electric or hybrid car in these areas.
