Rong Side Of History


​John Helmer , In the Corridors of Power, The US and Israel are Daring Russia, China and the World to got to War to Save Arab Palestine
​  Call it a repeat of the SS ultimatum to the Warsaw Ghetto of April 1943 — evacuate and we’ll give you a small chance of surviving, or stay and we’ll kill you for certain.  
​  Following the embrace of President Joseph Biden and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the  US has endorsed the Israeli plan to force the evacuation of the Palestinians from Gaza City to designated camps in the south. There Israeli forces will allow convoys of humanitarian aid to enter from Egypt and unload after Israeli forces have inspected the cargoes. The new southern zone will be cordoned off by an Israeli ring of fire, and everything north of the line, including Gaza City will be destroyed, hospitals included.  
​  This formula has been pressed on Egypt, the other Arab states, China, and Russia to accept by the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, a Portuguese government retiree, and his deputy for humanitarian affairs, Martin Griffiths, a British government retiree. They have emphasized there is no alternative to the destruction of Gaza, and its full absorption into the state of Israel. Reinforcing them, the US has cast its veto of all resolutions proposed in the UN Security Council (UNSC) by Russia, China and the Arab states to create humanitarian corridors under a ceasefire.​  
​  China is preparing a new UNSC resolution to face the US veto shortly, according to a statement by Zhang Jun during Wednesday’s UNSC debate in New York.  
​  In Beijing, President Vladimir Putin and President Xi Jinping discussed between themselves  what they plan to do jointly and publicly. “Over a cup of tea”, Putin told Russian reporters on Wednesday evening, “we talked for another hour and a half, maybe two hours, and discussed some very confidential issues face to face. It was a very productive and informative part of our meeting.”  “Informative” in Russian means they were unable to agree to make a public declaration of a Sino-Russian action plan.​  Instead, Putin announced he is deploying supersonic Kinzhal missiles within range of the US naval and air forces positioned in the eastern Mediterranean and​ in Jordan.​  [Is that enough protection to cover a humanitarian relief flotilla, I wonder?]

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant visited Israeli Troops outside Gaza today, and told them directly "The order (to invade) will soon be given."

  Andrei Martyanov has this about the Kinzhal missiles now circling over the Black Sea, carried by MIG 31 fighter-bombers. Kinzhal is fully autonomous once fired against a moving target like an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean 600 miles away. This is not a system that the US Navy should want to beta-test for Russia. Thanks Christine.

The "most sophisticated Command, Control, Coordination, Communications and Intelligence-gathering ("C4i")ship ever built" The USS Mount Whitney (LCC20) has been dispatched to the Mediterranean, presumably as command center for the two Carrier Task Forces.  (It presents an alternative, non-nuclear-weapon-bearing target.)

(A few) US Lawmakers Demand Biden Declassify Intelligence On Gaza Hospital Disaster

Meryl Nass MD (who is getting hammered by partisans in her comments section) 
There was one honest and moral official in the US State Department. He just quit over US provision of more arms to Israel.

​Simplicius points out how Biden is completely free from any discomfort about the hypocritical difference of US positions on Russia-Ukraine and Israel-Palestine.

Western Leaders' 'Posturing' Shuttle Visits to Israel an Effort to Buoy 'Hold on Power at Home'
​  European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, US President Joe Biden, and now UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak have all made successive visits to Tel Aviv amid the latest violent escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. At the same time, ongoing hostilities in the Gaza Strip region show no signs of abating, with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) pounding what they claim are Hamas targets inside the Palestinian enclave.​..
​..“These visits are meaningful for demonstrating publicly that the leaders are backing fully one side to the conflict and so disqualify themselves as peacemakers. They also attract the attention of the Global South, heightening their contempt for Europe,” Doctorow underscored.​..
​..The Gaza death toll has already exceeded 3,300, according to Palestinian authorities. One million people have been displaced in the span of 10 days, according to the United Nations. Furthermore, since the start of the complete blockage of the Gaza Strip by Israel, the Palestinian Ministry of Health warned of a severe shortage of medicines, water, and growing risk of an outbreak of disease in the besieged enclave. On Tuesday, even European Council President Charles Michel admitted that the siege of the Gaza Strip by Israel violates international humanitarian law.​ "When you cut the basic infrastructure, when you cut access to water, when you cut electricity, if you do not allow food to be delivered, this is not in line with the international law."​ ...
..According to the ex-chairman of the International Affairs Committee at the Bow Group think tank, there is currently little “will on the side of the Israeli government to spare lives of the Palestinian people, because they are using its bogus arguments of trying to raze Gaza to the ground in order to destroy Hamas.” Adriel Kasonta deplored the huge humanitarian crisis which is already unfolding, and warned that the actions of Israel would “destroy the two-state solution project completely.”
“Certainly, if the United State would not greenlight the actions of the Israeli government, Israel would not conduct this annihilation of the Palestinian population,” Kasonta believed.

​  Doctorow comments on an interview he just did:  Israel prepares for a new war.
  You will note my assertion that in this ongoing conflict not only are the neighbors of Israel preparing for an escalation at their own regional level but the global powers, meaning the United States and Russia, also have put their assets on the line and are ready to jump in at any time... Putin made his statement about the Kinzhals not from his Kremlin offices but from the guest house in Beijing where he spent two days this week and met for several hours with Chinese president Xi Jinping.  
  As a veteran Kremlinologist, I can say with confidence that Putin’s readiness to finish off the American aircraft carrier task force in the Mediterranean if necessary had been discussed with and approved by Xi, who surely has his own concerns about the U.S. navy operating most provocatively in the South China Sea.  
  It also aligns with the threat by North Korean leader Kim one week ago that he is ready to sink the U.S. aircraft carrier that loiters in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula.  What we have before us is the prospect of Pearl Harbor all over again, but in three seas.
  These separate facts are in the public domain.  I remain surprised that no one is drawing the dots to the obvious conclusion: that we are on the cusp of a very great war for which the Mideast crisis is just the detonator.
  Nonetheless, it does not have to end this way. Unless attacked, it is unlikely that Iran will enter the conflict directly.

Will these politician's promises last forever?  Germany and UK make Russian energy promise. There will be “no return” to previous trade ties with Moscow, officials vow.

​  See also Greg Morse, ‘Who Owns America? Cede & DTCC’, and A. Freed, ‘Who Really Owns Your Money? Part I, The DTCC’). Cede & Co. is now the owner of record of all of our stocks, bonds, digitised securities, mortgages, and more; and it is seriously under-capitalised, holding capital of only $3.5 billion, clearly not enough to satisfy all the potential derivative claims. Webb thinks this is intentional.
​  What happens if the DTCC goes bankrupt? Under The  Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) of 2005, derivatives have ‘super-priority’ in bankruptcy. (The BAPCPA actually protects the banks and derivative claimants rather than consumers; it was the same act that eliminated bankruptcy protection for students).
​  Derivative claimants don’t even need to go through the bankruptcy court but can simply nab the collateral from the bankrupt estate, leaving nothing for the other secured creditors (including state and local governments) or the banks’ unsecured creditors (including us, the depositors). And in this case the ‘bankrupt estate’ – the holdings of the DTCC/Cede & Co. – includes all of our stocks, bonds, digitized securities, mortgages, and more.
​  It sounds like conspiracy theory, but it’s all laid out in the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), tested in precedent, and validated by court rulings. The UCC is a privately-established set of standardised rules for transacting business, which has been ratified by all 50 states and includes key provisions that have been ‘harmonised’ with the laws of other countries in the Western orbit.​..
​..Webb summarises in the introduction:
​  “It is about the taking of collateral (all of it), the end game of the current globally synchronous debt accumulation super cycle. This scheme is being executed by long-planned, intelligent design, the audacity and scope of which is difficult for the mind to encompass. Included are all financial assets and bank deposits, all stocks and bonds; and hence, all underlying property of all public corporations, including all inventories, plant and equipment; land, mineral deposits, inventions and intellectual property. Privately owned personal and real property financed with any amount of debt will likewise be taken, as will the assets of privately owned businesses which have been financed with debt. If even partially successful, this will be the greatest conquest and subjugation in world history.”​ ...
​..Cede technically owns most of the publicly issued stock in the United States. Thus, most investors do not themselves hold direct property rights in stock, but rather have contractual rights that are part of a chain of contractual rights involving Cede. Securities held at Depository Trust Company are registered in its nominee name, Cede & Co., and recorded on its books in the name of the brokerage firm through which they were purchased; on the brokerage firm’s books they are assigned to the accounts of their beneficial owners.”​ ...
..As for timing, Webb says just the movement in interest rates, from 0.25 per cent to 5.5 per cent, should have collapsed the market already. He thinks it is being held up artificially, while ‘they’ get the necessary systems in place.
​  Where to save your personal monies? Big derivative banks are risky, and Webb thinks credit unions and smaller banks will go down with the market if there is a general collapse, as happened in the Great Depression. Gold and silver are good but hard to spend on groceries. Keeping some emergency cash on hand is important, and so is growing your own food if you have space for a garden.

James Roguski: Deep Dive on WHO Plot to Take Over the World!

Electricity grid capacity available in the world isn't keeping pace with the rapid growth of "clean energy" technologies, possibly putting governments' climate goals at risk, according to a recent report by the International Energy Agency (IEA).​    [But if the human population is cut in half it will probably ​work out ok, right?]

The Role of Forests in the Ecosystem: a Change in Paradigm is Coming​ , Ugo Bardi
​  Here is an excerpt from the article that reports the words of Anastassia Makarieva, the leading scientist engaged in these studies.
​  “Planting one trillion trees is wrong,” said Makarieva. Setting a numerical or area-based target “is lying to people”. Instead, the goal should be to restore ecosystem functionality. Just as mature trees with intact soil store far more carbon than young tree plantations, so, too, mature native forests are far more effective at regulating water and climate, she said. Makarieva’s work and that of many others is showing that local communities’ efforts to buffer themselves from floods and droughts by returning land to wetlands and floodplains, restoring native plants starting on wetter edges and mimicking natural succession has the potential — through carbon storage, heat regulation and the water cycle — to also lessen climate change and water extremes."
​  So, we are seeing a major change of paradigm in the way we understand the role of forests and the whole ecosystem. And we may hope that other paradigms will change as well. Just as we can change the way we see trees from carbon sticks to parts of a living forest, can we change the way we see humans from monkeys with guns to members of a living society? Right now, it looks impossible, but who knows?

​  Alpha Lo explains the Biotic Pump effect very well here. Evaporated water has taken up heat from the earth to become vapor. This vapor rises up through atmosphere containing CO2 greenhouse-gas until it become cool enough to condense back into liquid-water, while releasing the stored-heat from ground level, above much of the CO2 greenhouse gas, so it radiates into space more readily. This is a water-heat-pump-atmospheric-elevator-to-space. This model was simplified so the complex-variables were reduced to constants in a 1967 model which began climate modeling. This reduction of variations in water transpiration from forests, grasslands and swamps gave CO2 a dominant role by default. (Solar forcing effects were not worked into the model much, either, and primarily as light and heat radiation, not magnetic induction or energetic particle flows.)    The climate model approximation that could fundamentally change the climate movement​ , Carbon warming, water cooling
