Understanding World War

 Captive Audience,

  The Space Wars Are Here, Interview with Pippa  Malmgren   
  There's a reason that I do this, and it's genuinely not because I got any superhuman qualities. It is because of my dad. And so, my dad was advisor to four presidents and many heads of state. He worked for Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. He was one of the key people on the Cuban Missile Crisis, so effectively ended up almost as a nuclear weapons negotiator with the Russians. Nixon sent him to Moscow when he sent Kissinger to Beijing. So, basically from an early age, I had an apprenticeship from someone who was literally constantly in the Oval Office, and what my dad taught me was how to think as if you're in that room...
..We're in an era where warfare is not played above board anymore, we're in an era where both Russia and China talk about unrestricted warfare, a world where everything can be weaponized, take off the uniform, put on the other side's uniform like anything goes.​..
..And so, if you notice a couple of weeks ago, the Canadian foreign minister came out and said, "If the worst case scenario for Taiwan is to look like Hong Kong, we can't go to war over that." And you're like, "Whoa, are we agreeing to do some kind of a deal?" And maybe for Taiwan it's a hundred years, instead of 25 years, maybe there'll be all kinds of bits and pieces that are a little bit better. But it all amounts to the Taiwanese taking the position, do we want to be another Ukraine? Maybe not. And Xi taking advantage of this Ukraine action to then try to negotiate and navigate a deal where he gets to be the superhero, because number one, he gets Putin to stop and Ukraine to end, and number two, because he gets to keep a whole bunch of things that are on his list. And so I think, look, this is very Chinese.​..  
 ​..So first of all, when I lived in Hong Kong, I ran an asset management business for Bankers Trust for all of Asia, and so I spent a lot of time in Taiwan, and I always was struck that the Chinese capital controls, which meant that you could build a factory in China, like let's say a Heineken beer factory, and you could make a ton of money there, but you could never take your money out, because it's not convertible. And you would say, "But I made a ton of money, I'd like to take it out." And they said, "No, we think you should build another factory. And you would say, no, but I'm done. I don't need another factory." "Well, we think maybe you didn't file your taxes correctly last year, and this could be problematic for your staff." You're like, "Maybe we need another factory in China." So this is kind of the game, with one exception. What is the one nationality they allowed them to take all their money out? Taiwan. So why? Because they were buying the whole middle class, and so everybody who's made money in Taiwan has principally made it in China.​..
 ​..And notice that the former chief executive of TSMC, the big Taiwanese computer chip company, recently stepped forward and said, "I'd like to be a candidate for president, and I would run on a platform of let's cut a deal with the Chinese, because we don't want to be razed to the ground. And let's figure out an accommodation between us." And by the way, meanwhile, I do think there's an active strategy that the US is literally airlifting the most valuable parts of the semiconductor production in Taiwan, which are mainly those Dutch lithography machines, which cost 250 grand each, I think, and they're moving them to Texas and Arizona. And they're moving the families, because you need a certain amount of skill to operate these things.​..
​..I also see semiconductor production moving into space. We're going to have in orbit manufacturing that produces much higher grade computer chips at a lower cost. We can come to that in the space sector. But in other words, the dependence on Taiwan for that is diminishing every day. So, what would most wrong foot the United States is if the Taiwanese themselves said, "Let's cut a deal." Because then we can't do anything.​..
​..One of the biggest issues we have, and I agree with General Milley on this, he has publicly said we have an under-reported massive military buildup occurring in the Pacific. And we do, on both sides. It is separate from, though related to, Taiwan. But it's about the Chinese have these super dredgers where they're creating what they call unsinkable aircraft carriers, they can literally create an island that is reinforced with military capability in a matter of weeks. And so, they're creating new fortifications in the ocean, in the Pacific. The US is building a massive new Guam.​.. Which is just slightly south on a little island called Tinian.​..   
..So, I've been describing this, and you mentioned it earlier as we're already in World War III, and that freaks everyone out when I say it. And I said it, I think first two years ago or so.​.. "Yeah, we are. And there are more countries involved than there were at the beginning of World War II." But it's an invisible war​...
 ​..I've basically said we're in a hot war in cold places. Now those cold places are space, the Arctic, and the High North. People are like, "What do you mean we're at war in space?" I'm like, well, okay, so let's remember we live in a GPS world, and so we're completely dependent on satellites for not only missile guidance, but frankly, Uber Eats, right? None of this happens.​..  
..We shut down if we don't have that. So, what's been happening in space, which is we're in a proper space race now, right? There's a race to establish the first physical foothold on the moon that will be manned.​ [and mined for helium-3 for nuclear fusion reactors.]...
 ​'s kind of the new commanding heights, if you have control of higher orbits and the moon, you can basically take out everybody's satellites from above.​..  
​..Now, people, again, they're shrugging their shoulders, "Well, what does this mean for me?" Well, it means your GPS might not work tomorrow, but it also has led to a fight over subsea internet cables. And the first cable cut was in... It's actually technically January 6th, 2020, which is a very interesting day for other reasons, and nobody connects the dots on this thing. But the fastest internet cable in the world is on a little island in the Arctic called Svalbard in Norway. Now, why is it there, of all places? Because that is where pretty much all the high altitude satellites connect to Earth, is at Svalbard. So you cut that cable, and suddenly your missile guidance system's not working, and your Uber Eats isn't neither. So how much damage can you do to the world? Answer, a huge amount. But luckily, that was a lot of redundancy already built in. So somebody basically... It's such a wonderful story, it's so interesting. There was an oligarch yacht positioned over the top of the cable, and that yacht had a submarine inside it, but they think that, and I'll just say, we don't know who did this, right? And nobody wants to acknowledge who did it, but somebody's submarines went underneath it, and they cut away, I think it was six and a half kilometers of...​ undersea cable... They cut it and took it away. So it's not like, "Oh, it hit a rock and it broke." No, no, no, somebody cut it at both ends and took it away. Luckily, it was redundant. But it was the opening salvo to my mind of World War III.​..
 ​..Why did it all just disappear? Because nobody wanted to say that Russia and the United States were directly in war, because that is just a very... The threat that you go nuclear, nuclear threat, nobody wants to be there. So basically, suddenly everybody just dropped it. Nobody wanted to discuss it. And so it went away. But since then, we've had all kinds of attacks on the subsea internet cables all over the world. And, again, if you Google this, you'll see it the Marseilles Cable, the main cable that connects the United States with Europe and Asia. More recently, the cable between the Shetland Islands and the Pharaoh Islands, so between Scotland and the Danish Pharaoh Islands, and everybody's like, "Who cares? ​... Yes, but this is also the exact passageway where we track whether Russian submarines are coming into the Atlantic with or without nuclear weapons. So you want to have that internet cable live because without it you have no visibility on this, at a time when Russia is threatening to use nuclear weapons.​..
..And then that's just the hot war in cold places. I've also said we're in a cold war in hot places, which is what I've described in the Pacific and Africa. And I'm about to do a piece talking about the hot war in hot places, because now the coup in Niger, and the string of coups across Africa, it's literally heating up into a regional war, where it's ultimately the Russians versus the West.​.. 
.​.Ed D'Agostino:  I asked, said, "You've been in DC, you've worked in DC at the highest levels. Is it really that bad?" And you said, "No." And then you said, "It's worse. But if they showed the American public how bad it really was in Washington DC, no one would believe it."... Politics is a blood sport. It's a very tough game. I was in it for a period of time, but it's hardball​.
  So where are we now? Well, so you know in the past I've been writing about this concept of the social contract, and that there's always a social contract, and that social contract is breaking down principally because of the debt burden, and that's not just true in the US. That's true in many parts of the world, all of Europe, the UK, frankly, China. So if you think about the debt burden as a wrecking ball, a heavy weight that bears down on the social fabric, and it basically breaks the promises that have been made.​..
 ​..So anyway, the weaponization of the media space has created a lot of jangliness in the public dialogue. So everybody doesn't... Every time I give a speech in the States, I get half the audience comes up and... Well, basically everyone in the audience comes up and says, "I can't talk to the other half of America. I literally can't have a conversation with them anymore." And you're like, okay. But that means a hundred percent of the audience are thinking, "Either you agree with me, or you must be evil or stupid." ...
 ​..I think it's super interesting, the one presidential candidate, which I'll come to the presidential race, who is saying this is Robert F. Kennedy.​ And I watched Piers Morgan, who I know, and Piers in person is a very thoughtful man, but he started pummeling RFK, "You go on Fox News and you talk to those Republicans, and you have a conversation with Trump, and aren't you ashamed of yourself because you're a Democrat?" And RFK said, "How are you going to persuade your opponents if you don't speak to them?"

​  Surplus Energy Economics, Known Knowns , Dr. Tim Morgan
  I have chosen to call this “Known knowns”, not in the sense that everyone does understand the economy stated in these terms, but because everyone can so understand it if they choose, which is a rather different proposition.  
​  The narrative here commences with three principles. These are the energy basis of the economy, the critical role played by the proportionate cost of energy, and the character of money as a “claim” on material products and services.  
​  This leads to some equally obvious inferences. One of these is the conceptual necessity of “two economies”, which are the “real economy” of material products and services and the parallel “financial economy” of money and credit. Another is that the general level of pricing is a function of the relationship between these “two economies”.
​  Our situation now is that the enormous impetus given to the economy by the application of coal, petroleum and natural gas is fading out – stated simplistically, we’ve worked our way through lowest-cost fossil fuel resources and are now having to resort to increasingly costlier alternatives...
..Going forward – and assuming, for our purposes, no recourse to extreme monetary recklessness – systemic inflation is likely to run at between 5% and 6%, capped by the deflationary effects of rapid contraction in discretionary sectors of the economy.

Paul Craig Roberts: The End of US Dollar Hegemony
​  “So we see now a movement away from the use of the dollar as reserve currency. We see countries now focusing on keeping their reserves in gold and in the currencies of their trading partners. And we see now that international balances between countries, that trade differences are being settled in other currencies, in their own currencies, in the currencies of their trading partners. This change is not really dramatic and all at once, but it’s ongoing,” Roberts said, emphasizing the gradual nature of the process...
..Unfortunately, the veteran economist said, there seems to be little policymakers can do to stem the crisis, which he’s confident has already begun. And worse yet, neoliberal economists in charge of policy don’t seem to actually want to make any changes.
​  “It’s already happening. This is a gradual thing and will pick up momentum as it goes and the results will become more obvious. People will rush to get out of the dollar and when that starts, then the process moves quicker. That’s my explanation of what the real situation is. Of course, it’s ignored. There’s no discussion of this. If the Federal Reserve knows about this, there’s no sign that they do. If the United States Treasury knows, there’s no sign that they do. The neoliberal economists pretend nothing really has changed…But what they don’t realize is you don’t need a reserve currency,” Roberts said.

  Tulsi Gabbard, the former U.S. representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, has slammed the Biden Administration’s response to the horrific Maui wildfire, labelling it a “horrible, horrible disservice.”
  “The sad part is, we are eight days past this wildfire. And I’m in constant touch with community members and leaders. They are still not seeing a response from the county, the state, the federal government, to be able to go out and help them.”​ ...
​..She added that “The community support hubs that they have are 100 percent community led, volunteer supply collections, conducting all these co-ordinations on their own. They feel like the government doesn’t care about them.”
​  “That’s a horrible, horrible disservice to people who have gone through a kind of loss that we can’t even imagine,”
she added.
​  “Not only are they not getting the support that they need, but oftentimes they have been getting blocked from being able to receive the support from their friends and neighbors,” Gabbard asserted.
​  “This is a crisis that is continuing on,” Gabbard warned, adding “It is not at all lost on the people of west Maui when they are told that FEMA is going to give those impacted a one-time $700 payment. And as they look at the news, they are seeing tens of more millions of dollars being sent to Ukraine.”

​  A whopping 85% of media quotes on US military involvement come from someone paid by the defense industry...
​  The generals have been replaced by various experts with academic credentials, typically linked to one or more ‘think tanks’. Far from the neutral academic centers of intellectual integrity that the names suggest, these entities are little more than laundromats for discreet special interests. I should know – I used to be a director of one.
​  Every Wednesday, some of the highest-ranking figures of the Bush administration would come to our Washington, DC office to deliver their main agenda points for the week, requesting assistance in placing and promoting them to both grassroots activists sympathetic to the cause and to the general public.
The experts within the think tank were hired based on political litmus tests, no doubt to ensure that their views aligned with the organization’s. When they no longer do, you’re either fired or you leave.​..

How Western Big Tech Firms Wipe Away Hunter Biden's Many Sins

​  House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer asked the National Archives on Wednesday to hand over any unredacted records in which President Biden used a pseudonym during his vice presidency — as Republicans move closer to launching an impeachment inquiry into his role in son Hunter’s foreign business dealings.
​  Emails previously released by the Archives and retrieved from Hunter’s abandoned laptop reveal that Joe Biden used the email address “” while he was President Barack Obama’s second-in-command and that his aide John Flynn cc’d Hunter on 10 emails containing the elder Biden’s daily schedule between May 18 and June 15, 2016.

Dr. Meryl Nass Sues Maine Medical Board Over Suspension, Alleges Board Violated Her First Amendment Rights

​Meryl Nass MD , The Complaint has been docketed. The docket number is 1:23-cv-00321-JDL. The “JDL” denotes that it has been assigned to Judge Jon Levy.

Meryl Nass MD ,  Dr. Paul Thomas' case against the Oregon Medical Board is on appeal
​  Dr. Thomas has published scientific results showing that unvaccinated children are much healthier tha​n children vaccinated according to the CDC recommended schedule. A few days after his results were published, the Oregon Medical Board issued an emergency suspension of Dr. Thomas’ license. The Oregon Medical Board had no justification for ordering an emergency suspension of Dr. Thomas’ medical license—and the Oregon Medical Board violated its own rules when it did so.
  Dr. Sherri Tenpenny received an immediate suspension of her license last week--not to do with her care of patients, but because the Board did not like her lawyer's response to their interrogatories
​..As in my case, Dr. Tenpenny had her license suspended before a hearing, before the Ohio Medical Board had heard from her, and in the absence of patient complaints, in order to make an example of her and frighten other doctors who might challenge the narrative.

Putin Has Already Achieved Main Objectives In Ukraine, Lukashenko Says
​ He was responding specifically to a question over the circumstances under which he thinks President Putin would consider the goals fulfilled, in a 'mission accomplished' sense.
​  Lukashenko admitted he was having to speculate in response, saying: "You know, we did not discuss the topic with him in this spirit, but I dare to express my position. The goals of the SMO have already been fulfilled."

​(Duh!)   Report: US 'Classified Forecast' Predicts Ukraine Counteroffensive Will Fail

Via Google Translate, from Greek. These forces include the last battalion that was being held in reserve, armed with all NATO equipment.
Russian military sources are talking about a repetition of the Battle of Kursk in 1943 in Rabotino, speaking of another massacre of Ukrainian forces. The Russian governor of the Zaporizhia region, Yevgeny Balitsky announced a failed night attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Rabotino.​..
​..Despite the losses, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is bringing in new reserves, hoping to break the Russian defense.
​  The elite "Marun" team has already been deployed on the front lines, made up of soldiers trained in the West. However, even the West acknowledges that the chances of success are extremely slim. The Washington Post, citing CIA sources, reports that the Ukrainian army will not reach Melitopol and will not be able to complete the task of breaking through the land corridor to Crimea.​..
​..These are the sacrifices of the leadership of Kiev on the eve of the so-called Independence Day. They must justify the financing and supply of decommissioned European weapons with their blood ," Balitsky said.

​  Germany and the wider West have been shocked by a video released a few hours ago showing the losses of the Ukrainian Army in the settlements of Urozain and Staromayosk.
The video shows the destruction of 31 (!) Ukrainian tanks in a single battle for a settlement!​
