BlackRock Empire

 SBRE (Subjects of BlackRock Empire),

  Though I won't vote for Bobby Kennedy Jr. unless he stands up for Palestine, I still get his campaign emails. This one is unusually clear and to the point. The western empire serves BlackRock, which is a cover for global financial interests, hiding the faces of the owners, while doing their will. BlackRock is no longer apparently-separated from the Fed and Treasury of the US since the "going-direct" carried out under cover of COVID. "The Blob", needs to keep feeding on fresh assets. it needs to consume Ukraine. The defense against The Blob is to deny Ukraine to The Blob. Starve The Blob. Western troops and mercenaries will be hired with conjured money and sent to die as long as the money is accepted as "good".
  Team Kennedy: The Ukraine war should have never happened, and it's time we understand the complex web surrounding it.
 The Backstory:
  Russia tried multiple times to settle this conflict, wanting one key thing — to keep NATO out of Ukraine. However, the big military contractors had other plans. Adding new countries to NATO meant a captive market for specific companies like Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Boeing, and Lockheed.
 The Financial Toll:
  In March 2022, we committed a staggering $113 billion to the war in Ukraine. To put it in perspective, this could have provided homes for almost every homeless person in our country. But it doesn't end there. An additional $24 billion was committed two months ago, and now President Biden is seeking another $60 billion.
 The Money Trail:
Senator Mitch McConnell recently revealed a startling truth — it's a money laundering scheme. The funds aren't really going to Ukraine; they're going to American defense manufacturers, and who owns these companies? BlackRock.
 The Loan Illusion:
Senator Tim Scott tried to ease concerns by calling the billions we’re giving away a loan. But it's not a generous offer; it's a tactic. By labeling it a loan, extreme austerity measures can be imposed on Ukraine. This includes putting government-owned assets up for sale to multinational corporations, including its prized agricultural land.
 The Land Grab:
Ukraine's farmland, the breadbasket of Europe, is a major target. 30% of it has already been sold to Dupont, Cargill, and Monsanto — all entities owned by BlackRock.
 The Rebuilding Contract:
In December, President Biden awarded the contract to rebuild Ukraine, and yes, you guessed it — BlackRock secured the deal.
  The Strategy:
Their strategy is ancient but effective — keep us at war with each other. By fostering division, they maintain control.

  Pepe Escobar outlines La Défaite de L’Occident (“The Defeat of the West”) by Emmanuel Todd
​  Todd, in what he has defined as his last book (“I closed the circle”) allows himself to go for broke and meticulously depict the defeat not only of the US but of the West as a whole – with his research focusing in and around the war in Ukraine.​..
​..(Todd)  focuses on the key reasons that have led to the West’s downfall. Among them: the end of the nation-state; de-industrialization (which explains NATO’s deficit in producing weapons for Ukraine); the “degree zero” of the West’s religious matrix, Protestantism; the sharp increase of mortality rates in the US (much higher than in Russia), along with suicides and homicides; and the supremacy of an imperial nihilism expressed by the obsession with Forever Wars.​..
​..I n February 2022, the combined GDP of Russia and Belarus was only 3.3% of the combined West (in this case the NATO sphere plus Japan and South Korea). Todd is amazed how these 3.3% capable of producing more weapons than the whole Western colossus not only are winning the war but reducing dominant notions of the “neoliberal political economy” (GDP rates) to shambles.​..
​..The Russian notion of a nation-state, focused on “sovereignty”: the capacity of a state to independently define its internal and external policies, with no foreign interference whatsoever.​..
..The implosion ... of WASP culture, which led, “since the 1960s”, to “an empire deprived of a center and a project, an essentially military organism managed by a group without culture (in the anthropological sense)”. This is Todd defining the US neocons.​..
​..The US as a “post-imperial” entity: just a shell of military machinery deprived of an intelligence-driven culture, leading to “accentuated military expansion in a phase of massive contraction of its industrial base”... ​Modern war without industry is an oxymoron”.​..
​..The crux of Todd’s argument: his post-Max Weber reinterpretation of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, published a little over a century ago, in 1904/1905: “If Protestantism was the matrix for the ascension of the West, its death, today, is the cause of the disintegration and defeat.”​...
..In a nutshell, Todd shows how Protestantism imposed universal literacy on the populations it controlled, “because all faithful must directly access the Holy Scriptures. A literate population is capable of economic and technological development. The Protestant religion modeled, by accident, a superior, efficient workforce.” And it is in this sense that Germany was “at the heart of Western development”, even if the Industrial Revolution took place in England.
Todd’s key formulation is undisputable: “The crucial factor of the ascension of the West was Protestantism’s attachment to alphabetization.”
​..Moreover Protestantism, Todd stresses, is twice at the heart of the history of the West: via the educational and economic drive - with fear of damnation and the need to feel chosen by God engendering a work ethic and a strong, collective morality..​.
 The collapse of Protestantism could not but destroy the work ethic to the benefit of mass greed: that is, neoliberalism.​..
..He refers to “one of the great illusions of the 1960s – between Anglo-American sexual revolution and May 68 in France”; “to believe that the individual would be greater if freed from the collective”. That led to an inevitable debacle: “Now that we are free, en masse, from metaphysical beliefs, foundational and derived, communist, socialist or nationalist, we live the experience of the void.” And that’s how we became “a multitude of mimetic midgets who do not dare to think by themselves – but reveal themselves as capable of intolerance as the believers of ancient times.”​...
..Todd’s brief analysis of the deeper meaning of transgenderism completely shatters the Church of Woke – from New York to the EU sphere, and will provoke serial fits of rage. He shows how transgenderism is “one of the flags of this nihilism that now defines the West, this drive to destroy, not just things and humans but reality.”​...
​..Todd correctly defines NATO by plunging into “their unconscious”: “We note that that its military, ideological and psychological mechanism does not exist to protect Western Europe, but to control it.”
 In tandem with several analysts in Russia, China, Iran and among independents in Europe, Todd is sure that the US obsession – since the 1990s - to cut off Germany from Russia will lead to failure: “Sooner or later, they will collaborate, as “their economic specializations define them as complementary”. The defeat in Ukraine will open the path, as a “gravitational force” reciprocally seduces Germany and Russia.
​  Before that, and unlike virtually any Western “analyst” across the mainstream NATOstan sphere, Todd understands that Moscow is set to win against the whole of NATO, not merely Ukraine​...
​..Whatever the deadline, inbuilt in all this is a total Russia victory – with the winner dictating all terms. No negotiations, no ceasefire, no frozen conflict – as the Hegemon is now desperately spinning.

​  Israeli Military Chief Says Lebanon War Likely in Coming Months​ , Says Israel will apply lessons learned in Gaza offensive​  (Lesson: Make the Americans fight.)
​  Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi, discussed the potential of war in Lebanon, saying the likelihood of a conflict in the coming months is “much higher” than it has been.
Lt. Gen Halevi said he believes Israel will be starting the war with more advantages than in the past, and that lessons learned in Gaza will be applied to the situation in Lebanon. Tens of thousands of troops are reportedly being readied for the new offensive.

​  Israelis torture Palestinian prisoners using refrigerator trucks
​  Al Mayadeen's correspondent in Gaza reported on Thursday, citing accounts of released Palestinian detainees, that the Israeli regime "exposed prisoners to low temperatures as a means of coercing them to make false confessions" by placing them in iron caravans with refrigerators set at - 20 degrees.

​  Mohammed al-Kilani was among a family of 55 sheltering in Sheikh Radwan, Gaza City. Then Israeli forces stormed their apartment, executing his father, wife and 12-year-old son
​  “The walls started collapsing on us,” Kilani, 45, told Middle East Eye. “We did not know what to do. We all hid in one room.”...
​..The destruction was quickly followed by Israeli soldiers storming into the apartment. 
​  Kilani’s father, Hussein, went out to meet them, raising his hands in submission and asking them what was happening.​  “They shot him in the heart. He was killed immediately,” Kilani said.
​  One of his sons, aged 12, was just behind his grandfather.
“They threw a bomb on his abdomen. His intestines spilt out before my eyes. He was killed.”
​  When the family expressed shock at what had happened, an Israeli soldier fired another bullet into the boy’s dead body.
​  “The soldiers then ordered us to take off all our clothes, including our underwear,” Kilani said.
“They kept the men on one side and the women on the other. My wife was holding the Quran as they led us out of the room. A soldier told her to throw it away. She refused. He shot her in the back and the bullet came through her abdomen.”​...

..“They ordered us to get out, along with the women, without any food, clothes or money, then they burned the apartment. We went down to the basement, completely naked, before they took us to the mosque near the house.”​...
​..Kilani said that for around 24 hours, Israeli soldiers “took turns” torturing and humiliating him and his son, while preventing the elderly family members from using the toilet or drinking water.
​  “They tortured us by putting glass and nails in our feet, and by leaving us naked on the seashore from about seven or eight in the morning until after 2am. We were left without food or water or anything that could keep us protected from the cold weather,” Kilani said.
​  The 45-year-old said that if he or his son moved, the soldiers would hit them on the back with their weapons.

​  Large Rocket Barrage Slams Into US Base In Iraq, Injuring Americans
​  The Al-Asad base is the same that suffered retaliatory strikes in January of 2020 after then-President Trump killed Iranian military officer Qasem Soleimani.
​  US defense officials at the time said just 10 missiles managed to make contact with the base. It appears fewer than 20 missiles were fired in Saturday’s attack — with an unknown number intercepted by missile defense systems — though the story continues to develop.
​  Al-Asad was the second largest base constructed during George Bush’s "Operation Iraqi Freedom," — wherein ‘freedom’ in Neocon-speak of course refers to 300,000 dead Iraqi civilians — an operation which ostensibly ended in December of 2011.​..
..The Iran Observer said to "expect US retaliatory strikes against Iraqi resistance forces."
​  This follows an Iranian strike on what they deemed foreign "espionage centers" and "anti-Iranian terrorist gatherings in parts of the region" with ballistic missiles, killing four though no Americans.​  
[The Iranians are not attacking Americans.]

​  Houthis have declared safe passage for Russia and China.
  A senior Houthi official, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, mentioned these US rivals by name in an interview with the Russian outlet Izvestia on Friday. "As for all other countries, including Russia and China, their shipping in the region is not threatened," he said, stipulating this will remain as long as they are not linked to Israel or its supporters.
​  "Moreover, we are ready to ensure the safe passage of their ships in the Red Sea, because free navigation plays a significant role for our country," he added, but then underscored that attacks on ships will continue if they are "in any way connected with Israel."
​  The spokesman went on to blame the Red Sea crisis on Israel's (and its backers) refusal to reverse course in Gaza, given its aerial and ground campaign as continued. "Ansar Allah [the group's formal name] does not pursue the goal of capturing or sinking this or that sea vessel," he claimed. "Our goal is to raise the economic costs for [Israel] in order to stop the carnage in Gaza."

​  Senior NATO Official Says There Will Be A Hot War With Russia
​  Admiral Rob Bauer, chairman of Nato’s Military Committee, told reporters following a meeting of Nato defence chiefs in Brussels that governments need to start putting preparations in place, and that civilians will need to be mobilised on a large scale.
​  “We have to realise it’s not a given that we are in peace. And that’s why we [Nato forces] are preparing for a conflict with Russia,”​ Baur declared.

​  Russia can’t trust West – LavrovMoscow finally understands that it can never have a real partnership with the US-led bloc, the foreign minister has explained
“The West cannot be trusted. Even now, it wants only one thing – to live at the expense of others and to be more clever than others.”

​  Russia killed 60 foreign fighters in a missile attack on Kharkov, the Russian Defense Ministry has said
​  Russia’s elimination of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine hurts the West because it demonstrates how Moscow can inflict “huge losses” with single precision strikes, Finnish news editor Janus Putkonen has told RT. The Russian military said that it targeted a “temporary assembly point of foreign fighters” in Kharkov on Tuesday, killing 60 foreign fighters and injuring more than 20 others, the majority of whom were “French mercenaries.” The French foreign ministry on Thursday denied the presence of any French mercenaries in Ukraine, although a pro-Russian resistance group in Kharkov told RIA Novosti that French-speaking personnel were present at the targeted building, and that some foreigners there had been “supervising” the RDK, a Ukrainian paramilitary unit associated with the country’s military intelligence agency.​..
​..Hours before the strike, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that his country could not allow Russia to win the conflict in Ukraine, and pledged further arms shipments to Kiev​.

​  Russia called the French ambassador for an explanation: The dead French in Kharkiv were members of the regular French Army - They were not mercenaries...
Direct French involvement in the war - Russia hardens its stance

​  NATO personnel in Ukraine now ‘fair game’ for Russia – Ritter
​  Ritter pointed to the possibility that at least some of the French-speaking individuals may have been active-duty French military, “who were in Ukraine at the behest of their government, and now they’re dead.”
​  “I think this shows a new mindset for the Russians,” he said. “In the past, Russia has not shown any hesitancy to eliminate foreign mercenaries fighting on behalf of the Ukrainian military. But there has seemed to be some sort of leniency towards military advisers or personnel who belong to NATO countries who are in Ukraine.”​ ... Frenchmen in Kharkov may have been instructors teaching the Ukrainians how to handle weapons provided by the West.

​  Johnson Throws Cold Water on Ukraine Funding, Prioritizing Border Security
​  “With regard to Ukraine, we have needed, we have requested publicly and privately in every form, answers to critical questions: What is the end game and the strategy in Ukraine? How will we have accountability for the funds?” said Johnson, seeming to suggest that a bipartisan deal may not be enough to encourage their support of continued funding for Ukraine. “We need to know that Ukraine would not be another Afghanistan.”

  ​Cat sent this. There is not much news getting out about Lahaina lately, but it looks like the plan is to get rid of the locals and take the land, "same as it ever was". No new details of the microwave beam weapons, just grinding corruption and the weirdness of foreign cops. Still no views of what is happening. Airspace is closed to video-drones. Guarded fences. Insurance won't pay.

  ​Pierre Kory MD,  A Team of Experts Rebut The Expert Opinions of BC's College of Physicians and Surgeons
The College is trying to punish Dr. Charles Hoffe for numerous 100% scientifically accurate statements on multiple aspects of Covid science. Here is the first part of my expert defense testimony.
​  Canadian community doctor Dr. Charles Hoffe was one of the first to notice something was “wrong” with the vaccines in April 2021 after he witnessed terrible injuries (strokes etc.) and even a death in the patients he was vaccinating. He then wrote an open letter to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia with his observations and concerns, suggesting that perhaps the jabs should be put on pause until their safety could be more assured. One paragraph from the letter said:
​  “In our small community of Lytton, BC, we have one person dead, and three people who look as though they will be permanently disabled, following their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. The age of those affected ranges from 38 to 82 years of age,” he wrote.
​  Hoffe was then banned from working in the local emergency ward and other provincial hospitals. He later submitted more than a dozen claims of vaccine injuries on behalf of his patients, but all were denied validity.

​  In an appearance at the globalist World Economic Forum in Davos, the Director General of the World Health Organisation urged that global cooperation will be needed during the next pandemic, and that “national interests” hinder compliance.
​  In a session titled “Disease X,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated that in order to be “better prepared” and “to understand disease X,” the WHO’s ‘Pandemic Agreement’ needs to be adopted globally.
“This is about a common enemy,” Tedros continued, adding “without a shared response, we will face the same problem as COVID.”​...
..“This is a common global interest, and very narrow national interests should not come in the way,”
he continued, adding “of course national interests are natural, but they could be difficult and affect the negotiations.”

​  Meryl Nass MD ,  Why is Davos so interested in Disease X? 
The global biosecurity agenda is critical for them to achieve the New World Order/Great Reset. 
They strung several very well constructed fairy tales together that, when believed, lead you to walk happily into their ovens and pay for the privilege.
It's that simple.

​  Texas facing ANOTHER power grid collapse amid intense winter weather spell
​  An energy generation mix was taken from ERCOT's app on Monday that showed zero percent energy contribution from solar, 0.8 percent energy production from power storage, and just 6.8 percent energy production from wind.
​  "Meanwhile, the 'fossil fuels' so detested by the state's legacy media sites were kicking in 84.9 per cent of total generation, with a whopping 67.2 per cent coming from the state's natural gas industry," the media reported...
.."The problem was made a lot worse back then because ERCOT turned off the electricity to wells, compressors and pipelines," reports indicate. "ERCOT, Texas regulators and the industry itself have worked to get grid-critical sites properly identified since 2021 to prevent that mistake from happening again."
​  "If that claim is accurate, then the grid should be able to maintain service to all Texas customers during this severe weather event. If that claim is not accurate, then there could be trouble."
​  Whatever happens next will depend on the natural gas infrastructure of Texas, not the renewables infrastructure of Texas. The latter is entirely unreliable every time an unusual weather event arrives, which serves as a lesson for other states that are pushing "green" energy solutions as being the future.
​  "But the bottom line here in either event is clear: The success or failure of the Texas power grid when the chips are down is entirely related to the performance not of renewables, but natural gas," says David Blackman, an energy industry veteran.

​  How Texas' power grid weathered the latest freeze​  [Though peaking natural gas ​electrical generation has to do everything​, whenever asked, it is not mentioned here. Odd.]
​  Energy demand soared as minimum temperatures in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston and other cities began to fall in the mid-20s and teens beginning on Sunday.
Texas then saw three consecutive unofficial winter demand records throughout the freeze, with the peak topping out at 78,138 megawatts on Tuesday morning. (ERCOT couldn't measure peak demand during the 2021 storm, and it was likely higher than the new record.)
​  Tuesday's peak demand will likely be the state's third highest, being around 7,370 megawatts (MW) lower than the all-time record set in August 2023.
Details: Later that afternoon, a new solar power generation record was set, with panels around the state contributing 14,835 MW to the grid, or around 20% of the total generated power at the time.​ 
[Good luck​ it was clear that afternoon, eh?]
​  Wind also accounted for 30% of the power generated during the now-broken winter demand record set Monday night.
[Good luck Monday night, right?] ...
​..Rickerson said surplus energy from solar generation throughout the storm helped charge batteries and gave operators a chance to correct issues at thermal plants.
"This is the first time we've seen operational days significantly affected by the amount of solar during a winter storm," he said.
