Looking Forward


  The currents of history are running deeply and largely unseen, but we can look at things that are not working well in the current globalist-neoliberal financial paradigm of decision-making and resource management on our fair planet. What kinds of modifications to the plans would be beneficial, and what adjustments to the decision-making procedures would facilitate practical management going forward?
  People live and learn, and die, and the next generation has learned some good habits, but does not "know" in the same way, so there is a tendency to recurring crises, as support systems decline, and human elites turn societies against each other in wars, which the elites use to try out different managements while the societies are obeying emergency orders and afraid to be marked as "traitors". We also use-up whatever good-stuff we find to support ourselves, like forests, coal, oil, aquifers and rich soil for farming. 
  We're not bad critters. Any other critters would do the same thing, using what is found to support themselves and their progeny.

  I'll spill the beans. I seek Divine Guidance frequently, and I am often waiting for epiphany, so I have to keep busy with practical matters, because it comes when it comes, and it's not that frequent. That being said, we have the structures and mechanisms that we have, and must work within them every day. 

  We saw a gross representation of the failures of the current corrupt elite structures Thursday night, as the husk of Joe Biden was seen by all devout members of the Democratic Party to be demented. Now everybody knows that everybody knows. This moment was planned and structured by DNC elites, in coordination with other ruling elites. One must assume that DNC elites are now monitoring social media traffic for clues as to what direction people might easily be led, but it is also the case that rumors of false flag attacks and bioweapons releases, to force states-of-emergency, also abound. Well meaning elites might allow another candidacy by Bernie Sanders to proceed, elderly as he is, but these elites won't. they are severely constrained by their code-of-conduct which only allows dishonesty, and that road has reached a certain late destination now.

  There are other "rising-elites", more willing to engage the world realistically, and to ascertain where it is likely to go, as opposed to where they want it to go, history "rhyming", and resource assessments and financial analyses being available. One of the recurring themes is that when economic systems must adjust and "reset", that some elite group, often a rising-elite group, will offer the non-elite members of society a better deal to gain their cooperation. Declaring the slaves in a city to be "free" as soon as it is taken over by the besieging army is such a deal. Lincoln used that one, but it was already thousands of years old. We are not yet in receipt of such a social-contract as the Americans of the "great generation" of WW-2 obtained through their sustained efforts. It was offered by FDR, but undercut as soon as he died, by "imperial financial interests", his "banksters".

  Trump and Kennedy have both made statements that they would make peace with other countries, improve the American economy, and cut military spending, but they cannot do it without changes in the imperial court of deep state functionaries, and a new coalition of financial-power "ownership" elites. A financial crisis was "dealt with" in 2019-2020 with the "going direct" intervention, under cover of COVID-lockdowns, but the shuttered restaurants and real-economy inflation are apparent. The mismatch between the real-economy and the financial economy has only worsened by all of the measures taken since 2009, which have delayed and worsened the inevitable reckoning, where vast "fortunes" on ledgers will be written down, and some humans will find that they have little or nothing left. Elites have arranged for the first of those losses to be taken by retirees, especially by ceasing to live and claim their entitlements. There are more losses than that. Some elites will have to take losses. That's always the point where wars and insurrections take place. It is still being put off, but it is inevitable, and the $US is being stepped-down as global reserve currency, by the parallel BRICS system under-construction. Default upon $US debts has already been accepted by that system as non-exclusionary for participation. There will be a lot of that at some point...

  The new system will have an efficiency advantage, just as the current financial imperialist system started with an efficiency advantage over the military imperialist model. The natural response is to presume that this system will degrade over time, maybe sooner, which I also presume, but a stark choice is likely to present soon, and it will be presented as No-Choice, but that we must comply in some emergency. Maybe I'm wrong. That would be fine. Getting out of debt, since banks usually take assets in crises, and growing a vegetable garden are good investments, seldom regretted. Be a friend, too. Same thing.

  A Midwestern Doctor (eventually) makes a fair case for this speculation.  Is Joe Biden's Brain Vaccine Injured?  
Story at a Glance:
​  One of the most common side effects of the COVID-19 vaccination we’ve observed is cognitive impairment. This can range from brain fog to dementia, and frequently we see a rapid acceleration of pre-existing cognitive decline into Alzheimer’s disease.
​  •Recently large data sets have emerged which support our observations and indicate millions of people are being affected by the adverse neurological effects of the vaccines. Those datasets are summarized here.
​  After Joe Biden became president, he had a rapid decline in cognitive function, leading many to say he is not the same man who assumed the presidency four years ago. Since that decline paralleled his vaccination uptake, the pertinent medical information about his case is provided here so you can assess if the two were indeed linked.
​  Many other prominent Democrats have had significant vaccination injuries, including 8% of the Democratic Senators. Each of their brain injuries (3 strokes and encephalitis) and their link to vaccination are discussed here. This article particularly focus on Dianne Feinstein’s case, because like Biden, she had pre-existing cognitive impairment which rapidly progressed after the COVID vaccines (which she forced on America) hit the market and rather than admit it, she did everything she could to cover it up until she died.​ 

​  CDC Panel Recommends COVID Vaccines for Ages 6 Months and Up Amid Concerns Doctors Afraid to Recommend Shots​  
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices on Thursday also recommended everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot.​ 
 (Especially retirees!) ​  ​

  ​Andrew Korybko is more emphatic than usual.  Don’t Let The Elite Get Away With Gaslighting That They Didn’t Know About Biden’s Senility
The country is being ruled by a shadowy network of transnational and domestic elites that are united by their radical liberal-globalist ideology.
​  The reality is that they knew about this all along but covered it up by lying that any claims to this effect were “Russian propaganda” and/or a “conspiracy theory”, all because they actually approved of the Democrats installing a literal placeholder in the White House who the liberal-globalist elite could control.​..
..They ... went along with the lie that Biden is in tip-top mental condition for reasons of political convenience, but now it’s impossible to keep up the charade any longer, hence why they’re all feigning surprise and shock...
​..Biden was chosen as the Democrats’ candidate in 2020 precisely because he was already senile and therefore completely controllable.​ (Or c​orrupt & compliant, anyway.) That (uni)party, which functions as the public face of the abovementioned elite network, wanted someone who’d do whatever they demanded on the home and foreign policy fronts. In particular, they sought to turn America into a liberal-globalist hellhole while ramping up NATO’s containment of Russia in Ukraine, but the second policy backfired after the special operation began.
​  Nevertheless, they’ll never have another chance to install someone like Biden since 2020 was an exceptional election year due to it being a referendum on Trump – who a significant share of the public was preconditioned to falsely believe is the new Hitler – and mail-in voting due to COVID-19.​..
​..Any acknowledgement that they were aware of this would expose their role in 2020’s de facto coup, which was the elite’s latest after the ones in 2001, 1974, and 1963. Back then, 9/11 was exploited as the pretext for taking the national security state to its next level, while Nixon’s resignation in the face of the CIA’s Watergate scandal was meant to remove a truly independent and popular visionary leader. As for Kennedy’s assassination, many believe that it was aimed to stop his planned withdrawal from Vietnam.
​  The elite’s latest coup was meant to turbocharge the US’ preexisting liberal-globalist trajectory after Trump partially offset it with his comparatively more conservative-nationalist policies, which necessitated provoking a proxy war with Russia in order to unify the West around this ideological cause. The damage has already been dealt and a lot of it is irreparable, but Trump’s return to power would still be better for Americans and the rest of the world, which is why the elite are dead-set against it.  (And there's Kennedy, unmentioned.)​

​  Israeli Officials Hiding Data About Forced Starvation of Gaza Prisoners
​  Security sources told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that the Israel Prison Service (IPS) is intentionally cutting Palestinian prisoners’ caloric intake, a move confirmed by Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who called the policy a “deterrent.” “The Palestinian detainees will receive the minimum rights and the minimum food, and I will ensure that this policy is implemented.”​...
​..“There is no starvation, but my policy does call for reducing conditions, including food and calories,” Ben-Gvir added.
​  However, dozens of Palestinians held by Israel, including so-called security prisoners and detainees unaffiliated with Hamas, have testified that the IPS “has significantly reduced their food rations, to the point of starvation, causing them to shed dozens of kilograms.”​...
..At a hearing on Wednesday, the High Court of Justice slammed the reduction of Palestinian prisoners’ food rations as “unacceptable.”...
​..According to Israeli whistleblowers who worked at the notorious Sde Teiman prison camp in the Negev Desert, Palestinian detainees there are tortured not to “gather intelligence,” but “out of revenge” for October 7.
​  Often referred to as “Israel’s Abu Ghraib”—the infamous U.S. military prison in Iraq where dozens of detainees died, some of them tortured to death—Sde Teiman has been described by former detainees as hell on EarthPalestinians held there and at other detention sites described being electrocuted, mauled and even raped by dogs, and starved, among other abuses.​

​  US Begins Evacuation of Thousands of Citizens: Israeli Army to Invade Lebanon and Syria Simultaneously to Eliminate Hezbollah
Risk of engagement with Assad forces - US sends 3,500 bombs
​  The US, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, North Macedonia and Kuwait are asking their nationals to leave Lebanon immediately, while Germany, along with the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Russia, the UK, France, Ireland and Australia, have urged their citizens to avoid traveling to Lebanon following rising tensions between Hezbollah and Israel.
​  Additionally, according to breaking news, US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force helicopters and aircraft are expected to evacuate hundreds of American citizens from Lebanon to Cyprus and from there to the United States as Israel is set to launch its operation against to Hezbollah.​..
..An unimpeded flow of arms is now being promised by the Americans with the delivery of 1,700 500-pound Mk.82 bombs destined for Israel, which were seized in May after the Israel Defense Forces launched an incursion into Rafah in southern Gaza... 
..There is a strong possibility that any Israeli invasion to oust Hezbollah north of the Litani River would coincide with an Israeli invasion of Southern Syria to oust Hezbollah and IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard) militias such as Fatimiyoun and Imam Al -Hussein, from Quneitra and the countryside of West Daraa.​..
..Yesterday's pounding by Israel's air force, last night, as well as the concentration of forces in the Golan Heights and South Lebanon, support the above scenario...
​..Nasrallah appears to be locked in a costly conflict, but he cannot end it before the war in Gaza ends. Meanwhile, the IDF continues to pound southern Lebanon and prepare for a major war, which will be painful for Israel but a total disaster for Hezbollah, according to Israeli experts.
​  Besides, according to statements by a top official of the Biden administration, to Politico: "Nasrallah's logic ... is that everything is connected to Gaza and until there is a cease-fire in Gaza, the rocket launches into Israel will not stop ... Frankly, we reject completely this logic".
​  On the one hand, they "reject this logic" and on the other, US Secretary of ​State, Antony Blinken recently stated that "A new war between Israel and Lebanon would be disastrous for Israelis and Lebanese citizens, we call for urgent diplomacy".​

​  Report: Biden Admin Sent Israel 'At Least' 15,000 2,000-Pound Bombs
​  Between the war's start last October and recent days, the United States has transferred at least 14,000 of the MK-84 2,000-pound bombs, 6,500 500-pound bombs, 3,000 Hellfire precision-guided air-to-ground missiles, 1,000 bunker-buster bombs, 2,600 air-dropped small-diameter bombs, and other munitions, according to the officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly.​

 Iran is not specifically threatening to attack Israel... Iran Threatens Israel With 'Obliterating War' If It Attacks Lebanon
​  A Friday statement from Iran's ambassador warned the UN that any "full-scale military aggression" in Lebanon against Hezbollah will mean that "an obliterating war will ensue." The Iranian statement continued by emphasizing that "all options, including the full involvement of all resistance fronts, are on the table" in a statement posted to X.
​  By "resistance fronts" Tehran means the militias it supports in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen will also ramp up their military activities. On a few occasions, Iraqi Shia militias have launched missiles and drones against southern Israel, as have the Houthis, with limited effect.
​  Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has acknowledged this week that a "seven front war" could open up, in reference to all of Iran's proxies across the region.​.. ​ 
Most analysts agree that Hezbollah is far more capable a paramilitary and guerilla force than Hamas, or any other Iran-linked group in the region for that matter. In the 2006 Lebanon war, there were reports that IRGC operatives were on the ground in Lebanon assisting Hezbollah.

​  Iran Openly Talks About Building A Nuke In Historic Shift
Tehran is fully aware of its status as a 'threshold state' and is using this to project strength in its broader standoff with Israel in the region:
​  In interviews with a dozen American, European, Iranian and Israeli officials and with outside experts, the cumulative effect of this surge appears clear: Iran has cemented its role as a “threshold” nuclear state, walking right up to the line of building a weapon without stepping over it.
​  And yet Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu has warned many times over the years that he will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear status. He has vowed to launch a preemptive attack should Tehran cross this line.​ ​ [We hear that Russia doesn't want that to be done.]
​  But this has not stopped an official close to Iran’s supreme leader from recently explaining that if the country were to face an existential threat, it would "reconsider its nuclear doctrine" — as quoted in the Times report.
​  Without doubt, Iranian leaders have in the back of their minds the examples of Iraq's Saddam Hussein and Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. Both gave up their WMD programs and nuclear aspirations, and soon after were invaded, overthrown, and executed (and in Gaddafi's case he was killed on the street by NATO-backed rebels).​

​  Iran presidential election 2024 updates: Pezeshkian, Jalili head to run-off
Reformist Pezeskhian won the first round of the presidential race with 42.5 percent of the vote, followed by hardliner Jalili who got 38.6 percent.
Both candidates now head to a run-off as neither managed to get 50 percent plus one vote needed for an outright victory.
At 40 percent, the turnout was the lowest ever recorded since the formation of the Islamic republic in 1979.
Friday’s election took place to pick a successor to President Ebrahim Raisi who died in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

​  Masoud Pezeshkian (Persian: مسعود پزشکیان; born 29 September 1954) is an Iranian heart surgeon and reformist politician who is currently representing Tabriz, Osku and Azarshahr electoral district in the Parliament of Iran, and also served as its First Deputy Speaker from 2016 to 2020. He was Minister of Health and Medical Education between 2001 and 2005 in the Government of Mohammad Khatami.​

​  The Heart of Gnosticism​  by The Ethical Skeptic
​  Gnosticism is not a particular set of beliefs; rather, it is a learned philosophy concerning the ethical relationship between authoritative power and its constituency. A philosophy abhorrent to those who crave abuse of such power. It is the heart and soul of the message brought by The Son of Man.​
