When Everybody Knows


  Tom Luongo has posted "The Russian Regime Change Trap", pointing out that there is a lot of ongoing talk about effecting regime change in Russia in the west. The reason he explains at length is that the neocon establishment has a foregone conclusion that Russia will again be turned over to western vulture-capitalism, as it was under Yeltsin in the 1990s. This carrion-feast is "divinely" ordained, but they are just being thwarted by Vladimir Putin again. He didn't go down with the Russian economy, as planned, so he needs to be taken-out as quickly as possible, by any means, so that history can resume its orderly progression.
  Luongo sees the "Davos Crowd", including Merkel, Macron and other Eurocrats, as being distinct from the more vicious and inelegant neocons, like Nuland & friends. He sees the long strategy to get Russia to build Nordstream-2, in order to pretend to plan a future together, as being cover to build a Ukrainian army to destroy Russia, as well as destroying the Russian investment so easily. 
  Merkel, Macron and Ukrainian politicians have endorsed that they were never serious about normalizing relations with Russia via the Minsk agreements. This stance, whether true or not, means that there has long been nobody "agreement capable" in the NATO world. 
  Luongo points out that Russia must therefore grind NATO meat, not merely Ukrainian meat in the grinder. 
  The Russian people do not have the same illusions that those in the west do. They know life is hard, war is bad, and Putin is not a perfect man. Russian government is still corrupt. Still, Putin is a Russian patriot, and this is existential war to save Russia from another round of the 1990s, so the Russian nation, government and armed forces all support this action, which will not falter.
  Therefore, as he sees it, NATO advancement against Russian forces will serve to bring NATO to the Russian meat-grinder, and already is.

  From the Hal Turner show: (If the west keeps feeding the grinder, the west will fare as Ukraine is faring. Going nuclear is the other choice.)
  The country of Poland has, over the past months, inserted fifteen thousand (15,000) regular, active-duty, Polish Army troops into Ukraine and they are waging illegal war against Russia inside Ukraine.
  This information comes from intel sources just back from the actual front lines inside Ukraine, and these sources are unimpeachable intel sources.
  Many have known for months that NATO countries have been sending "advisors" into Ukraine, to "teach" Ukrainian troops how to use advanced weapons being supplied by NATO countries.  But all along, NATO emphasized "we are not a party to the conflict."  That is a lie.
  NATO troops from Poland, and from the United States and United Kingdom are, in fact, participating in the war and this covert military participation is going to get a lot of us in America, and in Europe, killed.

  Turkey will have to follow-through and keep troops out of Syria, but it would then be "agreement capable" and have to exit NATO.
  Türkiye has agreed to fully withdraw its troops from northern Syria following tripartite talks involving Moscow, Ankara and Damascus earlier this week, Syrian newspaper Al-Watan has reported...
..Ankara and Damascus also expressed a common view that the Syrian-based Kurdish YPG militia, which Turkey associates with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), “are agents of Israel and the US, and pose a grave threat to both Türkiye and Syria.” ...
..A special trilateral commission will be created by Russia, Türkiye and Syria to ensure that the agreements reached in Moscow are honored, Al-Watan reported.
  Russia consolidates in East Mediterranean
  The United States has suffered yet another big setback in West Asia as the year 2022 draws to a close. The unfolding Turkish-Syrian reconciliation process under Russian mediation is to be seen as a saga of betrayal and vengeance...
..Syria was the ultimate test case and a real challenge for Erdogan. Ankara had invested heavily in the improvement of relations with Syria within the framework of the so-called Adana Agreement in 1998 in the downstream of Turkish military’s massive showdown with Damascus over the latter harbouring the PKK [Kurdish] leader Ocalan. Erdogan initially did not want Bashar al-Assad to lose power, and advised him to reform. The families of Erdogan and Assad used to holiday together...
..The Pentagon began aligning with the Syrian Kurdish groups linked to the PKK.  (In October 2014, US began providing supplies to Kurdish forces and in November 2015, US special forces were deployed in Syria.)...
..Indeed, since then, Erdogan had been protesting in vain that the US, a NATO ally, had aligned with a terrorist group (Syrian Kurds known as YPG) that threatened Turkiye’s sovereignty and territorial integrity...
..It is against such a backdrop that the two meetings in Moscow on Wednesday between the defence ministers and intelligence chiefs of Turkey and Syria in the presence of their Russian counterparts took place. Erdogan’s reconciliation process with Assad is quintessentially his sweet revenge for the American betrayal...
..On Thursday, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said: “At the meeting (in Moscow), we discussed what we could do to improve the situation in Syria and the region as soon as possible while ensuring peace, tranquility and stability… We reiterated our respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty rights of all our neighbours, especially Syria and Iraq, and that our sole aim is the fight against terrorism, we have no other purpose.”
  Russian President Vladimir Putin has been counselling Erdogan in  recent years that Turkiye’s security concerns are best tackled in coordination with Damascus and that Adana Agreement could provide a framework of cooperation...
..The US resents Erdogan’s move to normalise with Assad — and that too, with Russia’s helping hand. It is now even more unlikely to give up its military presence in Syria or its alliance with the Syrian Kurdish group YPG (which Ankara regards as an affiliate of the PKK.)
  But the YPG will find itself in a tight spot. As Syria requests Turkiye to withdraw from its territories (Idlib and so-called operation areas) and stop supporting armed groups, Turkiye in return will insist on pushing the YPG away from the border...
.. Russian influence on Syria remains intact and Moscow will continue to shape Syria’s transition out of conflict zone and consolidate its own long-term presence in Eastern Mediterranean.
  OPEC Plus has gained traction. Russia’s ties with the Gulf states are steadily growing. The Russia-Iran strategic ties are at its highest level in history.

  Iran's Buy of the Century: 24 Plus 40 Russian Su-35 Fighters Land in Isfahan Along with 4 Mi-26s  (Translated from Greek)
  Iran has confirmed that it is taking delivery of a full Squadron of 24 Russian S-35S fighter jets causing an earthquake in the Middle East. Iran's PressTV news agency announced the purchase to the Iranian people in a video.
  An Iranian journalist also reported that the delivery of fighters to Iran will begin in the next few days. The base that will welcome them has been prepared.
  And this is just the beginning: 40 more Su-35s are coming along with S-400 anti-aircraft systems and in the future Su-57s.

  Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced Wednesday that the social media company’s new official policy will not penalize users for legitimately questioning scientific claims and narratives that are promoted in the media...
..“New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science,” Musk said...
..“Anyone who says that questioning them is questioning science itself cannot be regarded as a scientist,” Musk said in response to the video about Fauci.

  Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, who makes $174,000 per year and has personal wealth (accrued in office) of $114,662,521 (2018), will step down from her leadership position, but is not retiring.

  In 2023 it will be all about the dollar  The international section of the Shanghai Gold Exchange will be used by Saudi Arabia for its yuan to gold transactions. It is therefore likely that some of China’s purchase of nearly 300 tonnes in recent weeks will be to provide liquidity to backstop this market.
  With regard to prospects for next year’s gold price, it should be noted that the major factor will be the fate of the dollar. It appears likely that dollar oil prices will increase in the coming months, while foreign holders of dollars will continue to reduce their dollar exposure, which in the year to October declined by $3.8 trillion. But a rising interest rate trend leading to falling financial asset values and the petroyuan replacing the petrodollar, events could coalesce into a perfect storm for the dollar.
  This is not how conventional analysts look at the gold price. They would argue that higher interest rates, if they occur, will drive gold lower. But that is an argument that denies the role of gold as money.

A Multipolar Shift with Energy and Dollar Disruptions, Victor Xing
Executive Summary
In the near term, China’s reopening and buying of ESPO (East Siberian Pacific Ocean, Russian) crude would likely erode the role of Brent & energy indices
Gulf nations envision the scope of petroyuan to be on par with demands for Chinese goods & technology transfer
Rising yuan payments for Russian energy and more China-Gulf bilateral trade imply future dollar demand decline
In the long term, more local currency trade settlements would erode dollar flows and Federal Reserve’s influence

Charles Hugh Smith, It's A New Era
  Making problems much worse by forcing more of whatever worked in the previous era into a saturated, increasing unstable new era--receives little attention or understanding.
  Eras may last decades, and only those who've lived long enough to recall previous eras have experienced the transition from one era to the next. The era of financialization, globalization and low-cost, abundant oil/natural gas began over 40 years ago in 1981.
  The era of digital / Internet technologies took off about 30 years ago. All of these dynamics accelerated in the early 2000s, roughly 20 years ago.
  Only those 60 and older experienced working in a previous era (pre-1981).
  All of these dynamics are entering a phase of nonlinear turbulence as the changes are outpacing these highly streamlined / optimized systems' ability to self-correct.
  This nonlinear instability is being accelerated by doing more of what worked in the previous era, in the mistaken belief that the 2020s are simply an extension of the eras that began 40 and 30 years ago.

“49% of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely”...
..28% know someone directly they believe died from a vaccine. Even if the correlation is false (although I believe it is the opposite as many of the deaths are not recognized), 28% of the population believing the government and every authority they were raised their life to trust would push something this dangerous onto them shatters the institutional trust our entire society is built upon...
..When asked if they knew someone who they suspected had died from the vaccine, 33% of Democrats said yes, while 26% of both Republicans and those who were not affiliated with either party said yes. Rasmussen argues this (along with many other demographic response rates) suggests the poll’s results were valid, and explained this result being due Democrats, while being less likely to want to acknowledge a vaccine injury, likely knowing far more people who were vaccinated, and thus being exposed to a higher rate of deaths.

(24 year old) Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest and will not make a full recovery   , Steve Kirsch
Hamlin was vaccinated. The Buffalo Bills is a 100% vaccinated team...
..This was called “unprecedented” on ESPN. Hamlin has been intubated and currently listed in critical condition. All the announcers said they'd never seen it in the NFL. This was a joint decision by both the NFL and the players to stop the game. This is unprecedented.
  One of my nurse friends wrote, “How often has a young healthy football player that didn’t take that hard of a hit had a heart attack or stroke.”
  A tackle really made his heart stop? How? After decades of hard hits in the NFL, this has never happened.
  CPR was administered for 9 minutes. Normal is 3 to 5 minutes. After 10 minutes you’re basically dead...
Dr. Peter McCullough just wrote me (7:54pm):
  "I watched the play live both as a fan and a cardiologist and I saw blunt neck and chest trauma, a brief recovery after the tackle and then a classic cardiac arrest.  I have communicated to one of the most experienced trainers in the world and we agree that it was a cardiac arrest in the setting of a big surge of adrenalin.  If Damar Hamlin indeed took one of the COVID-19 vaccines, then subclinical vaccine-induced myocarditis must be considered in the differential diagnosis.   We have been told he was successfully defibrillated on the field and has been intubated and is not spontaneously breathing which is consistent with anoxic encephalopathy.  The nation prays for his complete recovery."…. 3 hours after he said that, the Buffalo Bills confirmed he was correct.

  Some of us remember the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, in very early 1968. My USMC-Major Dad had just gotten back from 'Nam a few weeks before the offensive, but we already knew things were much worse than advertised (Though Dad always maintained that "we could have won the war if we were allowed to.). 
  Walter Cronkite, on the CBS Evening News, commented with great concern that America might have been misled by the government, and the tide of public opinion, tensely divided until then, turned against the war. That was a "Paradigm-Shift".
  This appears to be the trigger for another Paradigm Shift in the common-wisdom of the American public. 
The US Government has been lying and killing Americans on purpose again.
