Peace love mung beans.
Thanks to Dimitar and SandinEd for comments last cafe.
I need to, and am choosing to be off line. Time and presence needed IRL.
Go in peace friend. Come back restored.
Tucker defends Putin
Even better toward end.
‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host reacts to new revelations in Russia bounty story. #FoxNews? #Tucker
I once commended Putin in the Daily Beast comment section hidden among 157 comments, just mild, just insinuating Putin in the case COULD be right and received a blacklisting for the rest of my life, wanted only on a Wild West poster for horse thieves.
So expect Tucker Carlson’s life will end here, as THE journalist of all evil.
Ok. this is not really a laughing matter but one does need to maintain sanity: ( for those who do not know, Biden is a dirty old man who has the disturbing quirk of manhandling little women and girls, yes, by sniffing their hair)
Prob not much surprise here but Caitlin nails it, Cia no longer needs to manipulate the media as in Mockingbird, it is now the media:
Oh dear, I had two things and wanted to start with the funny. The TV-producing section of the Russian military just opened a TikTok account, and it is hilariously funny. Now, TikTok is not my style but we have to accept that it is a younger style, and rank and file soldiers are younger people. So, this fits them smoothly. But, I found this on a Twitter account and when I wanted to post it from the Twitter feed (as I have no clue how to even find and then post a TikTok thing), Twitter fell over and it is dead for now. I’ll post it when Twitter gets its marbles together again. (Mmmm, in these days and times one cannot help but ask if there was a little help to make Twitter fall over?)
So, the other was a serious thing.
Stephen Karganovic takes a look at vaccine damage. The absolute horror here is that of course, as many stated that ‘Covid is not a thing’ as hard scientific ‘causality’ or cause and effect could be in question, now that very same scientific reasoning is being applied to vaccine damage. All of a sudden scientific ‘causality’ is again brought into the picture. If someone takes a jab and falls over after 2 days – of course, the cause cannot be the vaccine as we cannot determine cause and effect so it cannot possibly be the vaccine that made that person fall over. Oh heavens, don’t fall for this or any of these exotic reasonings because you may just be hoisted on your own petard.
Karganovic makes a good argument here for the insanity in that.
Seems to me we have to start hard questioning of the complete scientific model and the scientific process.
my older sister in perfect good health let herself vaxinated and passed away bold clot so incredibly sad so stupid
Dear heavens bernie. I’m so sorry for your loss.
I’m so sorry. No doubt it will be deemed another death by coincidence.
You may be interested in this study from Ireland on covid 19 deaths – I post without comment. From the study conclusion :
“…….gov.ie claimed COVID-19 deaths are deaths of older people and people with underlying conditions who died as per normal but were fraudulently classified as COVID-19 by vested interests using PCR tests which have found to produce a high percentage of false positive results.
Furthermore, I conclude that the approximately 500 excess deaths in Jan-Feb 2021 must be related to the rollout of the vaccinations in those nursing homes during that period, and that the excessively high COVID-19 deaths claimed by NPHET/data.gov.ie in Jan-Feb 2021 are contrived for the sole purpose of allowing those deaths to be explained as COVID-19 as per the death records rather than adverse reactions to the vaccines.
And finally, the health of a nation can be quickly assessed by looking at its trend death rates as quoted in deaths per 1,000 of population. I have prepared Table 4 below …..”
I couldn’t reproduce the table here, see in the link :
An ex RAF fighter pilot told me the other day he’d had the jab. I asked him how it was and he said he felt terrible for few days., he’s OK now. I have no idea why healthy old people are so dumb as to have this cursed injection, he had a choice.
There’s no guarantee it is effective, and they have to have a further two more in stages. Real sorry for the death of your sister bernie, and awful to think of these old people in homes dying alone from a bloody injection.
This is UK, they haven’t got around to the younger generation yet….. Its slaughterhouse mentality or something, mediconazism.
why don’t they make some comic videos. Putin as a super james bond killing all the political gangster war mongers etc. finishing all the baddies off and saving the innocent princes.
Biden as super villain?
Batman Black Biden versus OO7, “the names Putin, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.”
You must have missed this in 2015.
FSB reveals details of plot against Lukashenka
Alyaksandr Fiaduta and lawyer Yuriy Zenkovich were detained in Moscow for planning a military coup on May 9 in Minsk and an attempt on the life of Alyaksandr Lukashenka. This was reported by the FSB Public Relations Center.
The detention operation was carried out by the Federal Security Service of Russia together with the Belarusian KGB. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, Zenkovich, who has dual citizenship of the United States and Belarus, and Feduta, a Belarusian, worked out a military coup scheme in the republic “according to the worked-out scenario of “color revolutions” involving local and Ukrainian nationalists, as well as the physical elimination of President Alexander Lukashenko.”
It s reported by InfoRuss that it has been made public that the evidence and testimony of the arrested states that they had links to CIA and / or other foreign nationals, that orders had been given to kill both Lukashenko and his children.
Hopefully it is payback for the case of Ukraine plot to bring “mercenaries” to Belarus for regime change exposee last year.
I wondered why country’s just didn’t respond to the recent dollar inflationary cycle by simply adjusting the exchange rate.
I might have found my answer. They are not allowed too?
That Russian Military TikTok Account – there is a lot of humor in there. In this one, the background music is ‘staying alive’
In this one – Iskander, Smerch, s400, all at once – tiktok style with a musical rap type ditty in the background.
In the next few, a fearless blonde reporter.
Guess I’m gonna need a TikTok account.
I get only this!! “This is not available to you”
Cannot help Kent. This is the Twitter account. Don’t know if it is throttled in your world.
We’re dealing with incredible de-platforming, throttling, and removal of info now.
Have a taste: Even the little shrimps are feeling the heat.
Its really pathetic and desperate. Their fear of “influence” and “interference” from small sites with a budget of $5000………….LOL. Losers!

Three comments in, and one commentator is already calling for a boycott of Japanese products and services.
Go ahead, boycott all you want, I wouldn’t let that ruin my day. If you prefer to buy local, that’s your choice, I wouldn’t care.
But for me, at least, it leaves me speculating. A bit of sleep has been lost over the recent news, and my head is still spinning. Are the products I already own still ‘safe’ to use like they were the weeks leading to last Monday, or do they end up getting ‘cancelled’* and I can’t use them anymore?
I’ve been told on this site and elsewhere that many German industrialists are not on board with their own government’s foreign policy. If there exists such a disconnect in Germany, then I wonder to what degree a similar disconnect exists in Japan.
Two years ago I saw a YouTube video about a German car factory in Russia (can’t remember which automaker it belongs to or where the factory is at). One commentator asked about how this factory’s presence is acceptable when Merkel and co. are part of NATO’s attacks on Russia, and another commentator responded saying something about the automaker not being state-owned, hence not fully on board with Merkel’s policies.
On an earlier article here within the past month or two, fellow reader Katerina said something about European companies (I assume privately owned) operating in Russia and being accepted there granted they behave themselves, obey the local laws and pay their fair share of taxes (or something like that, I might have to dig through and find it). My hunch is that if they behave just as well in China, then they can do business there too and compete with local brands. (This would henceforth exclude brands like H&M or Kogame who have definitely not behaved well.)
Are Japanese private companies with a presence in China (e.g. Nintendo who had partnered with Tencent a year or so back) guilty of PM Suga’s actions any more than a company like BMW (or which other automaker said factory mentioned above belongs to) is guilty of Merkel’s actions?
(*Where does one draw the line between what can or can’t be ‘cancelled’?)
(None of this is to rationalize the undoubtedly irresponsible actions of the Japanese govt., especially under PM Suga. Same goes with Merkel and co..)
The author of this article, which otherwise criticizes PM Suga’s China policy as skewed, drives a Toyota and doesn’t seem guilty about it, if that’s any consolation. I guess it shows not everyone is on the ‘boycott’ bandwagon.
“I’m sure nearly all the wearers of masks possess more or less normal brains and I have great sympathy for those among us who do not. But I still keep literally saying it aloud. “They can’t be this stupid. It’s just not possible.”
Usually I speak the words only to myself, as a pilot might quietly say, as the airplane was about to crash into a mountain, “Damn,” in more or less the manner of “Hmm, so this is how it ends.”
At other times I find myself raising my voice a little, especially when I walk the local sidewalks and streets and see the masked multitude performing their various plandemic [sic] rituals, the mask raising, the curb seeking, the street crossing, and so on. At such times I just say “Of course, it could only have come to this.”
A population that chooses shiny toys and flickering screens over logic and critical thought could only arrive at this absurdly picturesque and tragicomic ending.
I wish you well. Buckle up. It’s going to be a long and rough ride. This epoch has only begun to unfold. One more thing: as I said at the start of this message, I won’t be contacting you further. I don’t know, meanwhile, how I’ll respond if I happen to meet you on a local sidewalk. I don’t imagine we will converse at length. There’s pretty much nothing to say at this point. But I doubt that I’ll even mutter a greeting if you’re donning a mask.
In that event I apologize in advance.
Yes…and of course the whole Covid-19 situation in Brazil at the moment is a complete fabrication.
They’re making it all up…no one in Brazil has ever died from Covid-19… it’s simply an elaborate plan that the entire country goes along with in order to promote themselves on the world stage.
It’s the most brilliant publicity stunt they could ever have staged as a nation. And oh so many enthusiastic supporters just like you yourself Jerry… and of course not to forget Jerry Bernini [or are you one and the same person]…so all in all a thoroughly hearty round of applause to you all.
Yep, that chappy Bolsonaro eh…what an absolutely brilliant strategist he is. Just like yourself, he knew it all from day one just as all those ‘hoax-hoaxers’ did. The whole world should now rush in, pay homage to him, and model their entire national end-game protocols on what this brilliant humanitarian has achieved…just look at his extraordinary success.
PS Have you had the presence of mind yet to nominate him yet for a Nobel prize for his services to humanity…it’s a very elite club…people like Obomber, Henry Killinger, etc…you know the ilk. He could fit in quite splendidly.
“It’s the most brilliant publicity stunt they could ever have staged as a nation. ”
Working at the B&M Foundation, it is, of course, clear that you have zero interest in what Gerry has to say:
“When you told me about the test I was the proverbial deer in the headlights. But I explained, or tried to explain, that the test that they foisted upon you that day (you were at the time visiting your wife in a nursing home) was in fact the fraud behind the larger fraud called Covid-19. If there is no real, valid test, and there is none, then there is no specific disease. Period.”
…you said…”Working for the B&M foundation”
Clearly have no idea of my stance when you make this accusation do you. If you had read any of my previous posts you would be under no illusions that I would be one of the the most anti-corona vaccine advocate on this entire site.
You are wrong about my having “zero interest in what Gerry has to say”.
On the contrary, I read the whole link with great interest.
The tragic irony here is that Bernini makes a lot of very good points but then proceeds to shoot himself in both feet by completely rubbishing the most basic and affordable tools [including testing and contact tracing] that countries like Vietnam and Taiwan used to almost completely wipe out the spread of Corona-virus without using a single vaccine dose.
It is idiotic for Bernini to ignore these hugely successful models and then proceed to promote the Bolasnaro ‘strategy which is a complete unmitigated shambolic disaster.
Vietnam and Taiwan, and incidentally NZ too, by transitioning to the end-game and using basic good advice to build our immune systems and with the added safeguards of Ozone therapy and Ivermectin, could completely illuminate the disease without deploying a single vaccine shot.
So there you have it…the strategy I support could use zero vaccines and the one Bernini promotes would require billions of doses. Not only that, the Brazil debacle has allowed new strains to mutate and thrive that are much more lethal and kill younger people as well as infants at a very serious rate. This will necessitate the B&M conglomerate to indefinitely develop new vaccines to try to control these new variants as they battle an ongoing entrenched and now endemic disease.
So ask yourself Anonymous…who do you really think is working for B&M, as you put it, even if it is in a state of extreme paradoxical ignorance.

Open Letter to a Friend Who “Tested Positive”…and Should Have Known Better (by)
The actual article is much longer and would make more sense read as a whole piece
and yes its different opinion from some here…
Shazadahl ! That is a typical series of points, or argument, from someone who is not in the habit of deeper analysis, no offence meant, but one is faced with this all the time.
First of all :
1/. In order to begin thinking, listen to what is said, or written very, very carefully.
2/. Then formulate a reply, or even maintain silence, there is always so much to think about !
3/. Try to base your reply solely in direct connection to what has been said, whilst intuiting what for them, the most important aspect was, how they felt.
Now, @ the Jerry’s Letter comment :
I have so often thought during the last year, about the content from this presented by anonymous, but the first time I ever heard anyone else describe this.
I very often posted about the lockdown and restrictions that began last year, the effects they were having, all manner of issues in connection to the these, and barely mentioned the illness, and if I did, always in the context of a broader context.
But the realization of this verbatim, visual tyrannical manifestation all around me, i.e. masks, social distance, kerb detours, lockdown all followed by the letter, after a lifetime of observing the ever encroaching social, political, cultural form’s of everyday life, then I had to think, OK then, so here we are, this is it.
These forms, life-style issues, have been the result of materialism and fear. And we are now well launched into the era of barbarism, set to continue for a long time. I have tried to address this here, from different angles, as other s have, resistance or no response. Never mind, thoughts take time to grow, or they will if heeded…
Re my comment, I could have concluded this with far more words than “resistance or no response” to describe my point, a lengthy article even, but it is enough. “He who has ears, let him/her hear.” I know they will.
You said…”That is a typical series of points, or argument, from someone who is not in the habit of deeper analysis.”
On the contrary, I went through the contents of the link very carefully.
I immediately found, as did Amarynth, that it was based on a whole raft of faulty premises.
In doing so it basically underwrites the very approach that Bolsanaro adopted. This is a very dangerous meme that will cost countless lives if people follow this tack. As such, I don’t mince words, neither do I post here under the illusion that the cafe participation is some sought of glorified popularity contest.
When I read dangerous misinformation and flat-out bull-s**t I call it out…simple as that!
Me? I would lose such a friend with the schmaltzy pretend Christianity, but not a smidgeon of the love.
We are dealing with a similar situation. A friend (co-worker) was caught in Brazil in lockdowns and needs to get home – home is in Europe. So, a test was necessary and it was positive and resulted in 2 weeks quarantine.
I stuffed her with maximum doses of Vit C, Vit D doses that could kill a small horse and good information that the test as it was performed is not indicative. Now she also knows what is done with the tests and she knows which questions to ask. The test is a confirmatory only, after a proper diagnoses by a real physician. The test gives an indication (if used correctly and if it even is functional) as to viral load and is an indication of how aggressive the therapy should be. Please, people, educate yourselves here, so that you know what to do.
OK, so I did not shout at her when I heard she went for a test. I did not shout at her when I heard it was positive. We simply went to work. Now, it is time for her second test after quarantine – remember she needs to get home!
So, we worked on this one too. She is going to a reliable physician before the second test. She will get a clean bill of health as we already checked everything. And then, if the second test is positive, we have some ground to stand on and to push it back into their faces.
We have not lost friend here, in fact a friendship just cemented more. And I’m not using god to try and get a foot to stand on for what is clearly horribleness to another. I have a particular dislike in these kinds of christians. My friend (and co-worker) will get home.
Bear in mind, you can shout ‘scamdemic’ all you want, but in every mass shooting or planned event to stoke fear and drama to use for purposes of mind control, usually there are a few that actually die. Please do not be one of those. If you want to fight the state, have at least your information ready, clear and handy in terms that they understand.
Aaargh, what a time we live in.
Anyway, regarding SARS-COV-2 and Jerry’s letter to his friend. First paragraph he makes a statement that the name Covid-19 was selected to make it easy to remember.
Well, no. There are naming conventions and the naming convention was followed here. SARS-COV-2 is the ‘critter’ and COVID-19 is the name of the illness that the critter causes. This is a long-standing naming convention that is not new.
I trust very few in this sphere, but I trust Russia and I trust (to an extent) China and I trust even Cuba, before I trust any of the western sphere. Seemingly New Zealand is still in a state of sanity.
So, in Russia, they report over 8,000 cases this morning. Now I can hear the scorn – what is a case? Well, in Russia a case of Covid-19 is counted when that case is confirmed by a blood test. And a Covid-19 death is not a death before a physical autopsy is done (and even here sometimes it is a judgment call – these numbers are soft). So, their numbers are more correct than most.
They are also working on a type of skin test strip, hoping that this research will be done before next autumn. This will be a quick and low-cost testing of specific cell immunity against the coronavirus. Russia is working all aspects.
So for now, they are not envisaging new lockdowns as the rate of infection has dropped. They are talking about entering a post-Covid period now – but recommend masking and hand-washing to continue.
If you look at the graphs for Russia, they closed their border with China right early on. And the rates of infection were low initially. And then, it jumped – from a few, to into the hundreds and then thousands per day. I cannot say too much about this but there were other countries where this happened as well. And if one analyzes all of those countries you will find that these are generally countries in ZoneB
We’ve not heard the end of this. In the ZoneA sphere, we need to gird our loins with solid information because we are being deliberately confused with a real virus, and the attempts of these states to have total control over their populations. Don’t say ‘the test does not work’. Study that test and figure out why it does not work in it is not only the cycles. It is the manufacturers as well. If I had to take a test now (and I’m not in a place where I will be coerced thank heavens), I will want to know the manufacturer, I will want to see the insert documentation and I will want to see the statistics specifically for that instrument. I will first go to a physician that could diagnose and then take a blood test, and then take a Covid test but only if I am coerced.
It remains to be seen how this will affect websites like Bilibili. Will this be temporary?
And then there’s this:
I wouldn’t be surprised if there were attempts by the US to depose Hatoyama and the Democratic Party, or why the Democratic Party itself was short-lived.
the Iskander-M documentary i posted in the newsfeed have some interesting comments about the Gorbachev government starting at ca 28.16🤔
Cant say i disagree or dont understand his/their feelings.
The Sunday afternoon show on Infowars is covering the show trial in Minneapolis with Maxine Waters demanding that the jury come out with a certain required guilty verdict . But after the host, Bob Barnes a top Constitutional lawyer, put up clips about Russia from the program Crosstalk and was about to put up an analysis from The Duran. he was suddenly taken off the internet ( his screen went black) so right now @3:28pm PDT I am waiting to see if the techs at Infowars can establish reconnection. The in-studio host is ad libbing right now with chat and ads.
Interesting times we live in.
Rather like those of the Chinese curse, I think teranam “may you live in interesting times’.
We sure do, I agree.
So what can we make of the Russian-Belarussian foiling of a murder and military coup plot against Lukashenko. I think it could be used to finally finish off the opposition. If it can be shown (shouldn’t be too hard either) that elements of the opposition, US/NATO operatives, and some traitors in the military were plotting a “Turkish style” coup against Lukashenko.Then maybe the gloves will be off with those elements and they will be neutralized for good.And Belarus and Russia will move even closer.
UFO’s are being reported by the U.S. military now, so I guess anything can occur.
they buzzed a US destroyer, the crew, out of Depends, wet themselves, then the bilge pumps failed, then the ship sank.
one day they’ll ban Beetle Baily and write comic strips of how ‘aliens’ terrorize US battle ships…just for slow news days though.
Highlights from report on how Telegram is used by Ukonazis and their Rusnazi supporters.It’s a very informative article,but not pro-Russian at all.We can glean the good from it,while throwing out the bad
“Oh, the bill comes to 88,” he joked mischievously as we ordered coffee outside Kyiv’s Independence Square, popularly known as Maidan. In far-right parlance, “88” is the numerical code for “Heil Hitler,” the Nazi salute. We were just around the corner from Cossack House, a former hotel seized by far-right militants during the 2014 Maidan revolution, which Levkin now uses as an event space.
Muscular, bearded, and blue-eyed with a shaved head, Levkin looks every bit like a Viking in a Netflix series. He is in fact a Russian citizen — one of a few dozen Russian nationalists and outright neo-Nazis who joined the Ukrainian army in fighting separatist forces backed by Russia during the Ukrainian revolution. Having grown disillusioned with Russia’s leadership and tolerance of Muslim immigrants from Central Asia, exiles such as Levkin saw Ukraine’s revolution as a victory for nationalism. It was seen as a model that could be replicated elsewhere. In conversation, Levkin referred to Ukraine as the “promised land.”
Although polls and election results show that the far-right in Ukraine has very little public support, members of these networks have infiltrated government institutions and security bodies at the highest levels since 2014. Vadym Troyan, a former deputy commander in Azov and an alumnus of a white supremacist group, is currently a deputy minister in Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs; Azov founder Andriy Biletsky was a member of parliament between 2014 and 2019. Although the Ukrainian government was cautious about accepting foreign fighters, which likely helped stem an influx of extremists, the country still developed a reputation as a welcoming destination for the far-right. In a report published by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, journalist Tim Lister says that the success of Azov made ultranationalists around the world regard Ukraine as a “field of dreams.” According to an official government inquiry into the Christchurch shooting, not long before the massacre, the perpetrator told his family that he wanted to relocate to Ukraine.
Most Russian and Ukrainian channels promote what they call a “traditionalist and conservative” agenda, which consists of a mix of open racism and hate-mongering against feminists and the LGBT community. Levkin says that, in a world constricted by political correctness, many far-right channels have been successful in reaching out to “normies” — ordinary people, in the movement’s parlance — and providing them an outlet for transgression. An especially popular source for far-right content is a Telegram channel run by Sergey Korotkikh, the most prominent living neo-Nazi from the former Soviet world. Originally from Belarus, Korotkikh helped create what was once a large Russian neo-Nazi organization before fleeing the country and ending up in Ukraine, where he assumed a leadership role with Azov. His Telegram channel, which has 23,000 followers, churns out hatred and obscenity on an industrial scale. One recent post argued, in a quasi-philosophical vein, that humanity needs psychopaths because normies are incapable of leadership.
As Levkin took the stage to chants of “Heil Hitler,” spectators forcefully raised their right hands in a Nazi salute. Many showed off their fluency in the far-right scene on Telegram to an undercover reporter. A well-built man with a tight haircut in a white power T-shirt described his interest in pan-European national socialism. A long-haired man who looked like a typical heavy metal fan said that he mostly read channels about right-wing culture and philosophy. A woman dressed in black offered that she followed channels dedicated to national socialist black metal……….
Hopefully some dept or other is compiling all this info and names into some kind of watch list……..for more serious attention than for example a group hacking all the signed up names to participate in Navalny protests being sold or released on the web for “advertising” marketing contacts.
Oh….news is full of his possible imminent passing etc….just in time for an EU meeting to hold Russia to account. Silly boy to go on hunger strike just cos his back hurts a bit….must be all that lying down on a prison bed….refusing medical treatments….sent to hospital today for vitamin intravenous treatment…..etc. .someone in Duma called him a “hooligan” ….maybe he got upset.
Perhaps the truth ate a hole in his stomach and this is why he cant eat.
Got this from sis, lots of info on Vit D and Covid19, long article but lots of interesting info
This second piece is from frontline workers and VAERs reports
Cannot see those sean. They are in some google box and I refuse to log into google. How much trouble will it be to copy and paste it out?
Sorry .. Hugs ..
I’ll try and forward them to the webmaster, hopefully they can then be posted……I recieved them as email, cheers.
OK, its full circle and back with me from the webmaster.
Here is the pdf paper on Vit D and Covid19 – https://saker.community/2021/04/19/mechanisms-in-endocrinology-vitamin-d-and-covid-19/
(I just quickly jammed it in there .. its not pretty but the pdf is there .. pretty will have to wait)
And here is the frontline workers and VAERs reports
Hope these are now available – although, not pretty. (Back to work I go)
Thanks sean the leprechaun – you’re a scholar and a gentleman :-)
Thanks sean the leprechaun and dear amarynth for your awesome work and more, your caringness :)
First read appears to be really good! will come back for more thorough analysis/read.
***This is NOT medical advice! Pls consult your doctor for your own health assesment.
Even though I am at a place w plenty of sunshine, I feel somewhat chickenshit… HA :D I am taking 800UI three time a day, after meals. I think thats overdose, but to date, there is no clinical studies that say OD on vit D cause harm. Like iodine, the extras get flush out of the system. To my limited medical knowledge and so far I actually REM sleep better. dear amarynth prob/pls share your view here :)
10 virtual ice-cream for each of you :D
be well be safe
@? I take 5000ius vit D per day (we’re north of the 49, just hitting 12 hrs of light per day now), it has been studied, and doses up to 10,000ius are tolerable without causing bodily harm, just what I’ve read, and not medical advice to anyone……….everyone must do their own research and have some trust in certain people.
How to screw up an undercover police operation and get dozens killed or wounded, I’d say, only in Canada, eh, but it’s likely more indictitive of police forces world wide and may even provide some insight into how and why mass shootings originate.
Currently, the empire is extremely overspread. The situation in the US is crumbling: border crisis, markets are acting weird and a crisis is looming, lockdown, racial tensions and protests, control of information, people kept at gunpoint by weapons of war, extreme debt situation, a bunch of other absurdities, including chip and medical crises. This week we expect the verdict concerning the court case of Chauvin. This is going to be a mess and lead to some serious escalation of protests and probably other clashes. It seems like the US is in some sort of a lukewarm civil war.
Add to that: the west is amplifying it’s aggressive posture against Russia, China, and possibly Iran with military and media resources deployed everywhere to create tension and exercise control. They are trying to jeopardize economic projects like NS2 which are needed by the west. Consider also the attempted assassination against Lukashenko, and the very important observation that western leadership has gone completely nuts, including talking about a nuclear war, etc.
The information control seems to be crumbling as well. This is just too much of a mess to be able to hide and their narrative is falling apart. Fear is widespread and people more and more need some safety to come from somewhere, which clearly cannot be found in the western leadership and empire. The empire is only capable of threats and destructive escalations, not to bring order and peace. The empire has no moral ground or any ground of truth. So under this leadership things can and will only get worse.
In this context of complete western melt down, the Putin’s important speech is coming, where Russia is very stable and organized, with large economic potential and reserves. This contrast is very important. This is the best time for such a speech since it would undoubtedly demonstrate where the true reliable leadership is.
Russia controls the marginal oil barrel and is the most influential player on the energy markets. She is not burdened by big debt and is not producing large new debt. She has unhidden strategic advantage and even dominance. Russia has a moral ground and an understanding of truth.
This probably largely explains the geopolitical tensions and despair.
There is absolutely no “need” to buzz the borders of Russia—just because you can does not mean you should.
There is a rumor – just a rmor so far – that Russia shot down an intruding P-8 surveillance place near Crimea today.
the “Shock Video: Children Strut Across Stage with Drag Queens, Pose For Cash at Night Club” article i posted in the newsfeed ruined my day.

Just hearing from the Philipines that the US, France, Aust, and the UK sent a fleet of fighter jets and equipment to Clark Air Force Base in the Philipines and have chased the Chinese Navy out of the area around The Spartly Islands………..anyone else have a different take?
There is also this from a US site involving Jaoan. The comments are what you would expect from a US link but they have facts on the mission. All this posturing is cementing the Russia/China/Iran trinity.
Thank you and good bye. I have participated and learned so much while reading this blog… However, I can not
worry about self censoring and engage in compartmentalization under the new rules.
I do understand the Saker’s personal/political/religious position. Sadly, I worry that this will not protect him so I urge him to have Plan B, and Plan C.
Wish everyone well here. and blessing.
Be like water, my friend. Be like water…
be well be safe
But. I always laugh at the looneylandia updates. And coining “the thingee” for you know whatee
Hi everybody (and a big howdy to the fellas down at the shop).
Just some thoughts.
The US Army training films in the early ’60’s described “modern” war as combined chemical, biological, and atomic. Just saying.
Big big “secret” in the 1950’s Washing DC cocktail circuit was “dusting” – deliberate contamination of an area with very “hot” particles. Area denial) (The Ukie prez just threatened something like this, by the way)
I see below Clark AFB is tickling the dragon. And at the other end of Heartland…”somebody” is baiting the bear.
The guy who got sworn in lost the election…obviously…what could be important enough to account for the urgency of the matter? Some grand plan…

I think you have just killed your website. I understand you’re just doing what you think you must but it’s a great loss.
Huuummmm. As most know, our host has made an “Important announcement by the Saker!”
I applaud it. He leaves explanation artfully undefined, very crypto! Seriously, heartfelt thanks old man!
QSN (it’s a puzzle to ponder in the shelter, or now)
Be rational, not emotional. Please read it with a careful and analytic mind. Is there a barking dog, or a whole yapping kennel, missing? Who is the audience? List the reader types and think about what the “negative template” might show (Peter Dale Scott’s term, I think) Think about the implied motivation… “under what circumstances would I…”
If that doesn’t work for people, they can look in file 1914 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2706589/Find-reason-war-Germany-Shocking-letter-documents-King-George-V-urged-foreign-secretary-justify-conflict-two-days-outbreak-First-World-War.html “Find a reason to go to war” ordered George V (whaddguy)
Think I’ll go watch “Strangelove”…Ripper’s demented (early senility?) head gives orders, and Major Kong’s “gunna hair lip ever’body on bear creek.” https://youtu.be/TrrlQc4xvmE
Inter arma enim silent lēgēs ? Seems to be. I heard stories of the “citizen patrols” in Kansas, when the US got manipulated into war on Germany (WW1)….my German fore-bearers were targets of night riders. There were lynchings (not my family tho). Gleichschaltung sometimes requires intimidation. They were suspected of sympathy with the Kaiser! This paragraph has nothing to do with the announcement. Honest!

Hope it all works out, but it looks really really fubared.
US ambassador to Russia will return home briefly: State Department
The State Department said Monday that the U.S. ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan, will now be returning to the United States this week before returning to Moscow “in the coming weeks.”
Why this matters: The statement, from a State Department spokesperson, comes just hours after Axios reported that Sullivan had indicated he intended to stand his ground and stay in Russia after the Kremlin “advised” him to return home to talk with his team.
• The Russians did not forcibly expel Sullivan as they did with 10 other U.S. diplomats in retaliation for President Biden’s sanctions last week.
• “Ambassador Sullivan will be returning to the U.S. this week to visit his family and meet with members of the new administration with whom he has not had a chance to consult since he agreed to continue serving in his post indefinitely,” a State Department spokesperson told Axios Monday night.
• “He will return to Moscow in the coming weeks.”
Between the lines: There’s a lot we don’t know, yet, about the circumstances surrounding this decision.
• Biden is handling a complicated and increasingly dangerous situation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is amassing troops around Ukraine.
• Biden announced Russia sanctions but also dropped U.S. plans to send Navy ships to the Black Sea to deter Putin’s aggression against Ukraine.
• And Putin has accepted Biden’s invitation to address a virtual climate change summit on Thursday.
• Biden’s team is also exploring the possibility of a summit between the two leaders later this year.
Lol lol lol🤣🤣🤣
Scoop: US ambassador refuses Kremlin push to leave Russia [lol. Not for long. ]^^
The United States ambassador to Russia is refusing to leave the country after the Kremlin “advised” him to return home following new Biden administration sanctions, two sources briefed on the situation tell Axios.
Why it matters: John Sullivan, a respected diplomat who President Biden has, so far, retained from the Trump era, is at the center of one of the most important early tests of Biden’s resolve.
• Russia’s foreign ministry announced Friday it would expel 10 American diplomats and bar current officials, such as Attorney General Merrick Garland, from visiting Russia.
• But the Russians didn’t expel Sullivan. Instead, the Kremlin summoned him to meet with a top foreign policy official, Yuri Ushakov, who recommended he go back to Washington for consultations with Biden officials.
• Sullivan’s view, according to people familiar with his thinking, is that if Putin wants him to leave, he’ll have to force him.
• A State Department spokesperson declined to comment.
The big picture: Last week, in response to Russian cyber-espionage and interference into U.S. elections, Biden unveiled a series of sanctions targeting the Russian economy.
• Biden spoke with President Putin last Tuesday, telling him that sanctions were coming while also exploring the possibility of a summit between the two later this year.
• In announcing the sanctions, Biden called them “proportionate,” and was careful to note he did not want to kick off a cycle of escalation with Putin.
• National security adviser Jake Sullivan spoke Monday with Nikolay Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council, discussed a possible presidential summit and “agreed to continue to stay in touch,” according to a White House statement.
Flashback: Last month, Biden agreed Putin was a “killer.”
The Russian — accused of poisoning some of his enemies — responded by wishing the new president “good health.”
• Putin also recalled Russia’s U.S. ambassador, Anatoly Antonov, to Moscow for consultations.
• The diplomatic signal was meant to underscore the Kremlin’s unhappiness with the Biden administration.
Between the lines: In response to the new sanctions, Russia didn’t expel Sullivan — or make him a “persona non grata,” “PNG” in diplomatic parlance.
• “If the Kremlin wants to PNG him, that would be a very escalatory move,” said Mike McFaul, who served as ambassador to Russia under President Obama. ”The last ambassador to be PNG’d from Moscow was George Kennan, by Stalin in 1952.”
• “I applaud Ambassador Sullivan for continuing his job,” he said.
The intrigue: Russia is amassing thousands of troops along its border with Ukraine.
• US officials have been working behind the scenes with allies to warn Russia of the costs of seizing additional territory but have made clear they’re not going to intervene militarily to deter Russia in a non-NATO nation.
The bottom line: Biden wants stability and predictability to define his relationships with Putin and Russia, while his administration focuses on China.
• By ignoring the Kremlin’s suggestion to recall Sullivan, the administration isn’t taking the bait to escalate, while making it clear that Biden gets to decide who his ambassador is, not Putin.
