Not Telling

 Still Wondering,

  Where are the missing children of Lahaina?  This story is from Monday 9/11/23. Why can't they report how many children are still missing?
​  The Hawaii Department of Education says the number of students listed as missing or killed in the Lahaina fire is so small that releasing it would violate their privacy.
This comes as the department announced it has been unable to make contact with nearly 500 families in its system more than a month after the disaster
that killed at least 115 people and displaced thousands.
​  Education officials have faced a groundswell of anger following the Aug. 8 fire that razed entire blocks. At a meeting on Maui last month, many families from Lahaina expressed concerns over plans to relocate students and the timing for reopening school campuses.

​  Paul Craig Roberts,  Was there a “war on terror” or a war on the American people?
​  Try to name Muslim terror attacks on America other than, if you believe the official narrative, 9/11.  You can’t, because there aren’t any.  Terror attacks on America were so non-existent that the FBI had to search for confused people and groups, convince them, enhanced with monetary bribes, to adopt a FBI prepared terror attack, and then arrest them before the attack could be attempted.  The FBI always explained that “the public was never in danger” as control of the operation was in FBI’s hands.
​  But the public is very much in danger from the police state measures that Taibbi lists. “Muslim terror” was so conspicuous by its absence that Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano announced that Homeland Security was being refocused on domestic American “extremists,” which has come to mean Trump supporters against whom the US government is deploying the police state measures.

DIA’s intelligence on Russia does not get to relevant hands in the White House because it is being ignored for political expediency, just like CIA reports on the current failed Ukrainian counteroffensive are being ignored by Blinken, Hersh said.

According to a Der Spiegel report on Tuesday, Berlin’s imports of petroleum products from India jumped more than twelvefold in January-July 2023 year-on-year.

​  Gilbert Doctorow on the dynamics leading into the Putin-Kim meeting this week:
​  The widespread assumption that Russia needs North Korean ammunition for its ongoing war in Ukraine is just plain wrong. The other type of military supply which Russia is said to seek in North Korea is medium range ballistic missiles, which some analysts say are among the best and least vulnerable to air defenses in the world.  There, too, I say that the Russian interest is not to deploy such missiles in the Ukraine campaign.
​  Instead, I believe the Russians are seeking the aforementioned military materiel from North Korea to add to their weapons inventory in preparation for a direct war with NATO if that comes.  In such eventuality this materiel can be of crucial importance.  In the meantime, conclusion of agreements for supply from North Korea allows the Russians to be more liberal in their deployment of their own top-of-the-line hardware as they shift in coming weeks from defense to offensive operations on the ground in Ukraine.  By way of example, I note that Russian use of their Iskander hypersonic missiles in Ukraine thus far has been very sparing. But most recent news suggests that Russia is placing large numbers of Iskander in the field for use when it goes on the offensive.  These missiles cannot be produced in great numbers quickly. Therefore, it will be very handy for Russia to have a back-up in the form of Korean medium range missiles.

​  The North Korean KN-25 missile system appears to be an object of Russia's affection.
​  The KN-25 has a 380 km range and is launched from a four-tube wheeled transporter-erector-launcher (TEL). The missile appears to have four fixed rear fins and four moving forward fins for guidance. While designated a “super-large” multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) by North Korean state media, the missile’s larger size and range led the United States Forces Korea (USFK) to categorize the weapon as a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM).  According to USFK, the missile is 600mm in diameter.
Relative to the missile’s width, the KN-25 appears to be approximately 8.6 meters long. No specifications on the missile’s length or guidance system have been released.

​More from Gilbert Doctorow: 
  “Old friends are better than new clothes.” This bit of folk wisdom was part of Vladimir Putin’s toast at the festive banquet.  But are the Russian-Korean relations something more than friendship?
  There was no qualification of the relations as “strategic partnership” or “alliance” or even “higher than alliance,” such as has been used to describe Russian-Chinese relations by the principals of both countries. Here, with the Koreans, it was just “friends.”
  What exactly did these friends agree upon?  It is unlikely we will know for some time.  Defense Minister Shoigu went before cameras earlier today but he spoke only about further destruction of Ukrainian military equipment and personnel. Not a word about the Koreans.
  From the commentary of panelists on Sixty Minutes yesterday and today, we can assume that officially Russia will insist it is honoring its signature on the UN sanctions against North Korea whatever it does in the days ahead. Russian shipments of agricultural commodities and hydrocarbons to North Korea in the coming weeks will be described as “humanitarian aid,” which is not subject to sanctions.  However, the message goes out on these talk shows that Russia is considering revoking its signature on the sanctions and going flat out to cooperate with the North Koreans in every domain.
  In the meantime, the Russians are watching with pleasure how Jake Sullivan and his bosses in the American national security team are squirming as they try to invent new sanctions to impose on Pongyang.

​  North Korean state media announced Thursday that Russia's President Putin has accepted a formal invitation from Kim Jong Un to pay a state visit to Pyongyang.
Kim hailed the "historic meeting and talks" with Putin on Wednesday, and he's expected to be in Russia for further travel to to Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where he'll visit an aircraft plant. Putin is said to have "gratefully" received Kim's invitation to visit his country​.

​  "The reason it was turned off was originally because the United States has sanctions against Russia - and that includes Crimea - and we are actually not allowed to turn on connectivity to a sanctioned country without explicit government approval, which we did not have from the US government," Musk explained on a podcast on September 12.
​  "So basically, Ukraine - they didn't give us any advance warning or heads-up or anything, we just got the urgent calls from the Ukrainian government saying that we needed to 'turn on Crimea' - it was like in the middle of the night, basically. We were like: 'what are you talking about?' And then we figured out this was a kind of Pearl Harbor-type attack on the Russian fleet in Sevastopol. So they were really asking us to really actively take part in a major act of war," he said.

​  Alastair Crooke, The Mackinder Strategic ‘Bible’ Reconsidered
  In 1997, Zbig Brzezinski, the original ‘driver’ behind the making of Afghanistan as a quagmire of ‘mud’ into which Russia was to be dragged, wrote his celebrated book, The Grand Chessboard. It was a work that ‘forever’ embedded the Mackinder doctrine of ‘he who controls the Asian heartland controls the world’ into the U.S. zeitgeist.
​  Tellingly, its subtitle was American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. Brzezinski had already written in his book that absent Ukraine, Russia would never become the heartland power; but with Ukraine, Russia can and would. Thus, Mackinder’s doctrine, ‘He who controls the heartland’ dictum, was codified into U.S. ‘cannon law’ – never to permit a united heartland. And Ukraine became seen as the hinge around which heartland power revolved.
​  Brzezinski further ordained that this ‘Grand Game of Chess’ was to be one of pure U.S. primacy: “No, no one else plays”, he insisted; it is a game purely for one. Once a chess piece is moved; ‘we’ (the U.S.) simply turn the board the other way around – and move the other side’s chess pieces (for ‘them’). There is ‘no other’ in this game”, Brzezinski warned.
​  This is today’s dilemma – It is so long since Brzezinski originally formulated the Mackinder notion, that classical diplomacy has become etiolated​. 
​  It was Henry Kissinger however, that gave Mackinder its celebrated twist: ‘He who controls money controls the world’ was to become the dollar and banking financialised hegemony.
​  But, Kissinger, in this, was wrong from the ‘get go’. It always has been: ‘He who has manufacturing capacity, raw materials, food, energy (human as well as fossil) and sound money can change the world’. But Kissinger simply ignored those adjunct conditions, and based the U.S. instead in the creation of a global ‘spider’s web of weaponised dollars (touch it, and the sanctions gossamer poisons you). Additionally, this system was multiplied through Wall Street parsing out access to trillions in newly created money only to the compliant.​..
​..Xi’s point was that China had never made this disastrous detour into the liberal western system.
​  Putin responded, “[China] managed in the best possible way, in my opinion, to use the levers of central administration (for) the development of a market economy
… The Soviet Union did nothing like this, and the results of an ineffective economic policy – impacted on the political sphere”.
​  Washington and Brussels just don’t get it. Plainly put, Xi and Putin’s assessment is that the Soviet disaster was the result of an improvident turn towards western liberalism; whereas, by contrast, the ‘collective West’ sees China’s ‘error’ – for which financialised tech war is being pursued – being its move away from the ‘liberal’ world system.
​  This analytic mismatch simply is imprinted into Washington’s mental circuits. It goes too some way to explaining the West’s absolute conviction that Russia is so weak and fragile financially, because of the primordial error in eschewing the ‘Anglo’ system.
​  The culmination: Washington is breaching (its own) Brzezinski Rule Number One: the ‘imperative’ to ensure that Russia and China do not come together, versus the West.
​  The big question today is whether weaponised tech as a ‘geo-strategic imperative’ to divide the heartland will be any more effective in achieving that end than has been the weaponised dollar.

​  California To Drop 'Medical Misinformation' Law After Judge Blasts 'Dramatic Examples'
​  California has quietly announced it's ditching Gov. Gavin Newsom's draconian 'Covid-19 medical misinformation' law, which would threaten the licenses of doctors who don't agree with "scientific consensus" on various issues.
​  The law, AB 2098, was signed into law by Newsom last year. In response, five doctors alleged it to be unconstitutional under the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the US constitution.
​  The five doctors, Tracy Hoeg, Ram Duriseti, Aaron Kheriaty, Pete Mazolewski, and Azadeh Khatibi, argued that the law prevents them from providing information to their patients that may contradict what the law permits or prohibits. They also alleged the law was used to intimidate and punish physicians who disagreed with prevailing views on COVID-19.
​  Now, as the lawsuit heats up, California has quietly added a provision to repeal the law to Senate Bill 815, which makes changes to the California Medical Board.

​  The confidential report is a bombshell. The vaccine was launched in mid-December 2020. By the end of February 2021, “Pfizer had already received more than 1,200 reports of deaths allegedly caused by the vaccine and tens of thousands of reported adverse events, including 23 cases of spontaneous abortions out of 270 pregnancies and more than 2,000 reports of cardiac disorders.”
​  This Confidential Pfizer Report provides data on deaths and adverse events recorded by Pfizer from the outset of the vaccine project in December 2020 to the end of February 2021, namely a very short period (at most two and a half months).
