Voting To Live


  ​R​eferenda​ now underway​ in Novorussian areas​ of Ukraine​, including Donetsk​, ​Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson​ will have secondary effects, assuming these areas vote to rejoin Russia.
​Shelling the Zaporozhye nuke will be shelling Russia at that point. Prisoners of war will not be executed for war crimes, because Russia does nt have the death penalty, as Donetsk and Lugansk currently do.​
  Ukraine getting longer range missiles to shell the expanded Russia will ensure deeper devastation within what remains of Ukraine. It does appear that Russia is preparing, by calling-up 300,000 ready-reserves, to launch a "by the book" land war against the remainder of Ukraine. It also appears that they would rather not do that, but would like to negotiate a reasonable resolution.
  Russia may build up forces, lace them at some depth, inside Russia, and prepare multiple contingency plans, rather than commit them immediately. Russia's biggest concern remains an attack by NATO, so holding reserves, ready for rapid deployment, is a conservative option.
  Whatever is rumored to happen this weekend would presumably be a western sneak attack or false-flag attack. Russians may know a lot more about "it".
  I have to wonder what the point will be that might allow Germany and other European countries to agree to some settlement which allows them to buy Russian gas and oil. Can some treaty be signed?

Moon of Alabama: Historic Context Of The Referenda In Ukraine    Thanks Zerosum.
Voting for membership in the Russian Federation has started in four oblast of Ukraine:
..The Ukrainian regime has resorted to pure terrorism to prevent the votes from happening:
​  ​Ukrainian partisans, sometimes working with special operations forces, have blown up warehouses holding ballots and buildings where Russian proxy officials preparing for the vote held meetings. Ukrainian officials have acknowledged that they are engaged in a campaign to assassinate key Russian administration officials; more than a dozen have been blown up, shot and poisoned, according to Ukrainian and Russian officials.
​  ​Such behavior by the Zelenski regime against its still Ukrainian compatriots will only encourage the people in the four oblast to vote for an alignment with Russia.
..In 2014, after the violent fascist coup in Kiev, one of the first laws implemented by the new government removed the Russian language from official use. Instead of overcoming the differences between its people it only sealed the predominant split in Ukraine.
​  ​The election promise of the current Ukrainian president Vladimir Zelenski to make peace with the Russia aligned rebellious Donbas region by adhering to the Minsk 2 agreements was rewarded with a large share of southeastern votes for his presidency. However, after having been threatened with death by fascists, Zelenski has made a 180 degree turn and has since posed as Ukrainian nationalist. In consequence he has lost all support in southeastern Ukraine.
​  ​The southeastern parts of today's Ukraine have for centuries been part of the central Russian empire. They were only attached to the Soviet Republic of Ukraine under Lenin's rule in 1922 and, in the case of Crimea, in 1954 under Nikita Khrushchev who himself had grown up in the Donbas region.

  Gilbert Doctorow has a well considered assessment of the current Russian moves, but he says "referendums", so I won't quote those parts, just his closing.
​   ​In light of all these developments, I am compelled to revise my appreciation of what transpired at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting.  Western media have focused full attention on only one issue: the supposed friction between Russia and its main global friends, India and China, over its war in Ukraine.  That seemed to me to be grossly exaggerated. Now it appears to be utter nonsense. It is inconceivable that Putin did not discuss with Xi and Modi what he is about to do in Ukraine. If Russia indeed now supplies to its war effort a far greater part of its military potential, then it is entirely reasonable to expect the war to end with Russian victory by 31 December of this year as the Kremlin appears to have pledged to its loyal supporters.
​  ​Looking beyond Ukraine’s possible loss of statehood, a Russian victory will mean more than an Afghanistan-like bloody nose for Washington. It will expose the low value of the U.S. military umbrella for EU member states and will necessarily lead to re-evaluation of Europe’s security architecture, which is what the Russians were demanding before their incursion into Ukraine was launched in February.

​  Bait and Switch, How Russia Handed Moscow to Napoleon 210 Years Ago​, details how Russia beat Napoleon in 1812, by letting his great army advance, while attacking its supply lines and harrying its raiders, as they sought food for men and horses. They did not let Russian troops be destroyed by the great army, fighting at the gates of Moscow, but letting Napoleon take it, then not paying him off, starving and starving the great army until it left, starving the horses until the soldiers ate them, starving them as they wore down and retreated, shelling them as they retreated, then finally the bitter cold hit, when they were already routed.

​  ​The Rise of the Global South and the Foundation of a New Currency System​   Thanks Michael R.
​..​We’re in the early stages of this, though it is moving very quickly now. What is worth considering is that this new BRICs based currency system hasn’t got the debt based system in place, where participants are tied to it like serfs. They need something new and it needs to be non coercive. A carrot, not a stick.
And this is where the following is so important to understand.
This new currency system will be backed by “stuff”.

  There are mixed reactions across Russia to calling up the ready-reserves of 300,000 military veterans. There are a lot of men getting flights out of the country. There is some excitement in Moscow. There are protests against the call-up (not a "draft"). There are wives sobbing goodbye. There is some heavy drinking.

​Alexander Korybko looks at the referenda (he uses the correct word)​ in Novorussian areas as being a form of defensive move.
​  ​The larger context within which those announcements were made is Russia’s unexpected setback in Kharkov Region, which was followed by Kiev building upon that momentum to seize control of a village in Lugansk and thus symbolically reverse that Republic’s full liberation that was achieved over the summer. Turkish President Erdogan also just told CBS that President Putin allegedly informed him during their meeting on the sidelines of last week’s SCO Summit in Samarkand “that he’s willing to end this as soon as possible. The way things are going right now are quite problematic. I think a significant step will be taken forward.”
​  ​It’s therefore possible that the scenario of those two Donbass Republics’ democratically driven accession to the Russian Federation, which could even perhaps coincide with the Kherson and/or Zaporozhye Regions’, could be the asymmetrical response that observers are bracing themselves to expect from President Putin after his side’s unexpected setback in Kharkov Region. To explain, Moscow would then regard attacks against them as attacks against itself exactly as Simonyan predicted, which would thus establish very clear red lines that might promptly end the military phase of the Ukrainian Conflict. NATO-backed Kiev would either voluntarily cease hostilities or be forced by Moscow into finally doing so.

​  ​Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed Moscow’s intention to continue close cooperation with the IAEA in order to force Kiev to immediately cease shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant during a meeting with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, a statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry published on Wednesday reads.
​  ​"During the conversation, an exchange of opinions on the security issues of nuclear facilities in Ukraine was held, including the situation around the Zaporozhye NPP (ZNPP). Lavrov confirmed the intention of the Russian side to continue close cooperation with the IAEA in order to force the Kiev regime to immediately cease the bombings of the aforementioned power plant and its adjacent territories, including the city of Energodar where the staff of the ZNPP and their families reside," the ministry noted.

​  ​During remarks on Wednesday, the civilian head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) slammed China as a “challenge” to the alliance. In an interview with Reuters, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Beijing’s support for the war in Ukraine, its opposition to NATO expansion, and its territorial claims justify the alliance assigning China this label.
​  ​Largely in response to Washington’s increasing hostility, Moscow and Beijing have strengthened their ties for well over a decade. Prior to the invasion of Ukraine, China and Russia carried out several rounds of military exercises. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping have met several times since the war began, reaffirming the two Asian powers’ growing ties...
​  “The sum of all is this just increases the importance of NATO allies standing together and realizing that China is part of the security challenges we need to face today and in the future,” Stoltenberg said in the interview with Reuters.

​Why we don't talk about those things... Mind-control:   (Thanks AFKTT)
​..T​he Pentagon was compelled to order a sweeping review of clandestine U.S. psychological warfare operations (psy ops) conducted through social media platforms. The investigation comes in response to reports suggesting that the U.S. military has been creating bogus personas with AI-generated profile pictures and fictitious media sites on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in order to manipulate social media users.
​  ​Psychological warfare, as the U.S. Army’s 4th Psychological Operations Group explained in a recruiting video released earlier this year, enables the government to pull the strings, turn everything they touch into a weapon, be everywhere, deceive, persuade, change, influence, and inspire.
​  ​Of the many weapons in the government’s vast arsenal, psychological warfare (or psy ops) can take many forms: mind control experiments, behavioral nudging, propaganda.
​  ​In the 1950s, MK-ULTRA, the mind control program developed under CIA director Allen Dulles as part of his brain warfare Cold War campaigns, subjected hundreds of unsuspecting American civilians and military personnel to doses of LSD, some having the hallucinogenic drug slipped into their drinks at the beach, in city bars, at restaurants. For Operation Midnight Climax, the CIA hired prostitutes to lure men into a bugged room, where they would be dosed with LSD and observed having sex
​  ​As Brianna Nofil explains, “MK-Ultra’s ‘mind control’ experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals.”
​  ​The CIA spent nearly $20 million on its MKULTRA program, reportedly as a means of programming people to carry out assassinations and, to a lesser degree, inducing anxieties and erasing memories, before it was supposedly shut down.

Thanks Red.   ​“Cognitive warfare is one of the most debated topics within Nato,” researcher François du Cluzel told a panel discussion on Oct. 5, 2021. He wrote a foundational paper “Cognitive Warfare” for the Nato-affiliated think tank Innovation Hub in 2020. Although cognitive warfare overlaps with information warfare, classical propaganda and psychological operations, du Cluzel points out that cognitive warfare goes much further. In information warfare, one “only” tries to control the supply of information. Psychological operations involve influencing perceptions, beliefs and behavior. The goal of cognitive warfare is “to turn everyone into a weapon,” and “the goal is not to attack what individuals think, but how they think.”  Du Cluzel: “It is a war against our cognition – the way our brains process information and turn it into knowledge. It directly targets the brain”. Cognitive warfare is about “hacking the individual,” allowing the brain to be “programmed.”​ ...
..“Behavior, meanwhile, can be predicted and calculated to such an extent,” according to du Cluzel, “that AI-driven behavioral science ‘behavioral economics’ should be classified as a hard science rather than soft science.”​ ...
​..Cognitive warfare “exploits the weaknesses of the human brain,” recognizing the importance of the role of emotions in driving cognition. Cyberpsychology, which seeks to understand the interaction between humans, machines and AI (artificial intelligence) will be increasingly important here.​..
​..We are now in the midst of a revolution – in the classic sense – a radical upheaval of the organization of the state system and power relations. Kees van der Pijl clearly explains in his book “States of Emergency” how this revolution, unlike, for example, the French and American revolutions, has not been initiated from below, but from above, by the oligarchy.  They implement policy through co-opted governments and organizations such as the U.S. government, the EU, WHO and WEF, supported by Big Tech companies. The system being worked toward is totalitarian, technocratic and centralized. Relatively few people realize how radical the upheaval we are living through, probably because this war has not been initiated by direct physical force, but by cognitive war, directed at civilians.
