That doggy is counting cards and watching for tells. I am sure
Dean O’Brien Donbas and Ukraine thread worth a scroll right now
Dissatisfied with Ukrainian President Zelensky, protesters have now started to rally in the centre of Kiev. Still, nothing here indicates that a coup is in the air though, and certainly not enough numbers.
Well, this was hilarious> https://youtu.be/rOVRI-A7yyo (Ryaba the Hen / Курочка Ряба )
And in more serious movie, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MT7am9cPtI ( Battle for Sevastopol )
We Yanks sure lost a lot when FDR died so conveniently. Elanor, (who is portrayed in the proffered movie, by the way, is a lady I well remember, and can be seen on the ‘net and YT.
I am overwhelmed now with projects ’round the smallholding. Fine weather and all that…
A poignant video from the Duran men which describes the mood in the UK and reviews the ongoing contrived collapse of Western society.
Two observant and eloquent social commentators! They are understandably heartbroken. It dawns on them the contours of Utopia Rising; perhaps 1984/BNW weren’t fiction? Huxley and Orwell appear to have been given the satanic blueprints, prominent annexes of the Protocols..
I particularly appreciated Mercouris who describes the death of small businesses and hope itself. And as many have commented on this in the last 2 years this is one of the major objectives of the lockdowns. Utopia Rising requires the end of small business.. there will be permitted to exist 1-3 large Company Stores requiring biometrics and digital credits called crypto/CBDCs.
Smoothie also covers collapse, from US angle, focusing on virtual shenanigans of the Khazarian viceroys and their absolute inadequacy. He reaffirms the current Biden complex team didn’t start this collapse. And something Big is brewing. He emphasizes the desperate need of AZ Empire for “an event” to re-focus and unify the public (away from collapse? Criminality of elite? away from ongoing Big Pedo trial? a 2-minutes of Hate towards the Orthodox Other? He doesn’t finish the thought)
It is chicken and egg scenario again – did collapse occur due to generations of incompetent bureaucrats or were they preselected for incompetence so this implosion stage became baked in at a certain future point in time?
I think I discussed a movie made in 2016, the year trump was selected (an important occult year for them, of the 666 year) called The 5th Wave, one of the worst movies I have endured. All you need to know is the title, keeping in mind current issues.
So keep your powders dry, we’re in for a long ride
Just some critique on the Duran video .. the collapse of the Roman empire surely has lessons, but the collapse of the USSR is a more topical and I would argue reasonable example as to collapse.
Of course there still is time (she says hopefully) to harden oneself and family against what is most certainly coming down the pike, collapse of the West. I cannot see that it can be avoided. We can even take examples from Afghanistan.
Simple to say, but hard to do. Make sure you have a roof over your head, make sure you are plugged into an alternative system, where you may tie up with a farmer for food … and have a ‘savings’ of some kind – a bit in money, a stock in ‘savings’ of something that people will need and some prepping up on the basics. For me, ignore most of the prepping sites (or read them for background of course) but most of them want to sell you something that you will supposedly need in the future.
Never ever forget the resilience and creativity of humans. We could all be well situated if we were in our ‘tribes’ and already following an alternative economy. It takes a little analysis, for us for example we have lots of growers so we will not run out of food as we can trade. So, analyze your circumstances and start planning and preparing for it.
“𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘱𝘴𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘙𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘦𝘮𝘱𝘪𝘳𝘦 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘰𝘯𝘴, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘱𝘴𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘜𝘚𝘚𝘙 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘱𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘐 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘢𝘳𝘨𝘶𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘱𝘴𝘦.”
This is very interesting point and focus of debate for at least three decades. I think Dmitry Orlov compared US and USSR collapses in his books? I have not read them, but I agree it is an apt comparison for most contemporary observers.
The Roman collapse may in the long run be a more telling lesson. The US consciously fashioned itself from Day 1 on the model of Rome. Deeply occultist.
For example, did you know the Capital Hill area of DC was originally incorporated as Rome, Maryland? And DC has 7 hills like the original Rome, and a branch of Potomac River is called the Tiber Creek. Washington DC was carefully selected by the Masons..
The US upper house was not named the House of Lords, but the Senate. The Constitution erected a Republic (some wanted a Monarchy, under Washington, but this was considered premature by wiser folks), and like the Roman Republic, it transitioned to an overt Empire with a clear Emperor..
And we know the appetites and overweening arrogance of Empire most closely follow Ancient Rome. See “City on the Hill,” “Manifest Destiny,” “the Exceptional Ones…who stand taller and see farther than others..” Consider the debasement of the USD with corruption of Roman coin.. And in end-stage phase, like Rome, the AZ Empire is deeply indulging in pedophilia, child-sacrifice and other abominations.. How Roman elites brought the looting and cruel treatment of barbarians home to Rome itself.. And like Rome, its current collapse may usher in a prolonged Medieval Age of centuries, if the descent from Hegemony is not better managed..
The collapse of USSR was significant, but this Collapse of USA Empire will be epochal and reshape face of the Earth, like the fall of Ancient Rome.
I agree, local [𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙬-𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙝 dear tech-wiz Amarynth, lol!] resiliency and support and networking will be the coming means of survival. Indeed our human neighbors’ creativity, ingenuity and light is sufficient gifts of our Lord for us. And as Auslander said, knowing how to dig your own privy too!
I wouldnt count on him to keep the lights on for much longer, so if you can avoid that one and the new weather conditions, you should be just fine.
I applaud and agree with amarynth’s good advice.
Speaking of lights “keeping on”…
Let the useful energy of work a healthy human can regularly do equal “one “EU””. In industrial civilization to-day each human has available and uses on average 10 additional energy units (10 EU)- according to a physics text I have. This may be inaccurate, but it serves as a tell that somewhere somehow even local distributed “village” life focusing of gardens and husbandry are going to rely on and have to find several additional EU per person. This may be coal, or fire-wood and so on, but must be found. And how many EU is necessary to forge a scythe or a knife? Metals are a very big deal! So are ceramics and glass… all take big power to make and represent a storage of power. I myself very much lust for a couple on tons of steam coal – entirely not available @ Anoxia.
This may not be so difficult to do, in some places, with a simple technical method – recall that in 1900 people got by and in some areas there were enough EU to support mills that made railroads possible, smelters that made copper and aluminum and electric power, such that the airplane and radio soon followed along with threshing machines. Nowhere near 10 EU/person was necessary for this level of technical life, and it was pretty good. Good enough that we got born…
(One of my little projects is to build a threshing machine. Another is an electric flour mill (try cranking one by hand and you’ll soon wish for a small motor!))
Regards – another day of work out in the shop, followed by husbandry.
Annexes of the protocols? where are they? a site? I’ve read the protocols and it looks to me like they have been pretty much fulfilled.
All we know is that human beings are formed primarily by infallible law, contrary to the delusuionists thinking of materialist science, and that only what is created by us, is subject to fallibility and to loss, as nature in itself is, hence the bare trees in the northern hemisphere at the moment. “And it is written thou shalt not live by bread alone..” Mathew 4.4. The roof over my head, the abundant garden and fields that grow the corn, are not what sustains life, in other words.
I do digress however, and wanted only to commend the Duran, and others also who make me glad that I am part of the world (united with humanity) and not alone.
the sky, deeper
your eyes, deepest
Psalm 24:1 — King James Version
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof;
The world, and they that dwell therein.
Unfortunately, many since time immemorial have tried to possess the entirety of earth for their own.
Life’s bounty is rich and exceedingly fine,
There’s something for everyone.
That which we sow is that which we reap,
Before our day is finally done.
For the farmer seeds and soil to be tilled,
The ox, the plough and stock well raised.
For the fisherman the sea with nets to be filled,
A family to feed and fish to be braised.
For the tanner hide and a sharp fleshing knife,
A vat, a mace and corpses flayed.
For the cobbler fine leather and shapely feet,
And orders for the rarest of shoes ever made!
For the healer a garden of herbs sublime,
To strike at the root of every scourge.
For the reveller disease that he may learn,
The folly of excess and the need to purge.
For mother a baby, for father a son,
For the child a sibling second to none.
Through school in order to become refined,
And pursue the dream we hope to be won.
For the soldier a prayer to serve in good stead;
“But for Thy love and mercy go I!”
When all hope is lost, to the earth the dead,
And for family and friends, one last goodbye.
For the flower, the sun, the wind and rain,
For the dreamer the dream, the undying flame.
For the poet the intake of angel breath
For the singer the song that has no name.
For the lost a cry in the wilderness,
For the arrow a bow and a clear-cut course,
For the soul, as It stands, untrimmed and unshod,
A priceless gift from an ancient source…
Life’s bounty is rich and exceedingly fine,
There’s something for everyone.
That which we sow is that which we reap,
Befor our time is finally done.
Thank you Dimitar, for the wonderful poem.
Thank you Sudhi. This poem came to mind upon reading your comment and quote, and so I took the opportunity to review and update. The edits are always worthwhile, since my viewpoint is always a little different in retrospect,
and the poem is invariably improved. Thanks also for the fresh breeze you bring to the MFC with your posts. In Spirit, D.
Sing it, Jagger….it’s a gas gas gas
@JavierBlas: EUROPEAN energy crisis.. And another one. Zog Energy, a small UK power and gas retailer with ~11,700 clients, collapses. The UK has seen 28 energy retailers going bust year-to-date, affecting nearly 4 million households. All good with regulation and government oversight.
>>>… And a reminder that each company that collapses will cost money to every household in the UK, whether is via taxes or higher tariffs into 2022. Slowly but steadily, it’s going to add quite a lot of pounds into next year.
>>>EUROPEAN Energy Crisis: We are witnessing (again) European energy-intensive industrial firms announcing production cuts in response to soaring electricity prices. An example: Ferrogloble (a silicon and manganese-based alloys producer) has announced it’s idling some extra furnaces
>>>… European benchmark natural gas prices (Dutch TTF) climb again above the key €100 per MWh (which translates into ~$33 per mBtu or $190 per barrel of oil equivalent). The tide continues to rise. And European governments keep their heads buried in the sand.
>>>…On top of sky-high electricity prices, Europe is drawing down its (smaller-than-normal) natural gas inventories ***faster than any time over the last 10 years***. Obviously, the heating season has only started, so much can change over the next four months
@rachelmorison The U.K.’s energy regulator considers stricter rules for hedging for energy retailers after many collapsed in the wake of soaring prices
@rdv_analytics: #Gazprom. the Russian #gas giant, could make record profits and generate 15% dividend yield over current price.
>>…While foreign investors were selling shares of the Russian market on rumors of Bloomberg about the war, JPM bought itself shares of #Gazprom.
>>…JPMorgan expects a 30% #dividend yield on #Gazprom shares for 2022.
Well, now the purchases of the @jpmorgan
on Monday at the Bloomberg news stuff became clear: https://twitter.com/rdv_analytics/status/1463092714564734977?s=20
>>…#Gazprom is heavily undervalued relative to its global peers in terms of P/E multiple, according to Bloomberg analysts:
• Upside to analogs from developed countries ~ 165%
• Upside to analogs from developing countries ~ 70%
JP Morgan Chase (JPM) is largest bank in the US, the world’s largest bank by market capitalization, and one of Big Four Banks (the 4 Riders) of USA.
As of 2021 it is the largest lender to the fossil fuel industry in the world..
So you engineer a Dark Winter, and profit from it at same time, while lights go out in West.. old Bankster trick
CAF brought to my attention last year:
– On March 5 2020, JPM’s 16-year CEO Jamie Dimon underwent “emergency heart surgery.”
– On June 5 2020, in his first public sighting since the surgery, Jamie Dimon took a knee for BLM in front of his Vault.
Last and most relevant to the building war fever, there is swastika hidden in the logo of JPM (just as in the NATO symbol).
The war rhetoric (besides the other rhetoric) is actually quite horrible. These guys, Daniel Dumbrill, Robert Barwick and Brian Berletic regularly does reaction videos on the Australian 60 minutes which is just time after time war propaganda. It is long and they take their time which is good:
This theatre of war is changing now. This is what it looks like to me.
A new US global posture review was published – they seem to be stepping back from the 1st Island Chain around China (SCS, Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines)
And building up the 2nd Island Chain, roughly Australia, Guam and some pacific islands. (Perhaps this is why almost all of the Chinese business in the Solomon Islands were just burnt down – we all remember Guadalcanal. Note the Solomon Islands were invited to the democracy party, and if you look through the list of invitees, there are many strategic island nations from the region there).
It looks to me as if we’ve taken a large step toward war in the last few days. I’ll take a guess and say these insane people want to replay the 2nd WW but this time against China and they are working on the depth of the planned war theatre and getting their ships out of missile range. Don’t know, I am not a war analyst. What does seem clear, is that the blood-thirsty drive to own the world has not subsided at all.
And on the other side of the world, besides even the continued aggression in the Donbas: Russia warns about ‘nightmare scenario’ of military confrontation in Europe. And Stoolie Stoltenberg announced that Russia cannot have a sphere of interest.
I say again, if Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin and all their merry men can keep us out of major war during this changeover to multipolarity, (they are trying to minimize the effects of a western implosion) it will be the miracle of our times.
Yes, the theatre is being prepared.
Russia deploys coastal missile system in Pacific (VIDEO)
Rational people ask: why. Why do they want war?
Well I saw this in a comment thread on ZH ~……(yes. I know.😜) But it made me think:
£€¥§~ Within the next three years, an incredible 51% of the US national debt is going to mature.
Given that the federal government is planning multi-trillion dollar deficits until the end of time, there’s no way they’re going to be able to repay that debt.
So how will they deal with it? Simple. The Federal Reserve is going to have to print more money… trillions of dollars more.
And that’s on top of the trillions of dollars they’re going to print over the next few years to pay for all of these new social programs… plus whatever omicron bailout the government comes up with.
It’s truly mind boggling how much money the Fed is going to have to print.
And when we see how disastrous the effects have been thus far, coupled with anti-competitive, anti-productive regulations, there’s no telling how high inflation could soar.”
Well inflation is one solution ^~
War. Is another.
If by some unimaginable agency most people on earth were, by coincidence, “gone”, would either inflation or war be necessary for the ruling class of 4th Reich to continue? Of course this class would find it proper that a conserved and servile slave population would be on hand, perhaps 500 million.
Seems to me that war and inflation and extermination are not mutually exclusive.
And that in conflict, the “enemy” decides when the conflict is over. Thus do bigbig plans go off the ideological rails.
As an example of flaws in bigbig plans, I was looking ’round and saw, BTW, that “Nuremberg trials 2.0” is, well, simply is. And that That Good Man Gates has a legal problem in India, where, inter alia, his freedom and property are under some “threat”. Like Ripper said, two can play at game.
Pal from US VA tells me that the nurses have some “subversive” ideas…based on their personal observations.
Back now to chores ’round the diggings.
Good morning, hearing about JPMorgan getting shares in Gasprom, I wonder if anybody has an idea of who finances what. Who owns what. For example, which financial groups are behind the weapons industry, which ones behind energy ressources, which ones behind any strategic industry, any business involving the sovereignty of a country… In order to map and track what we can for starters even if there is a vast grey zone. I understand, at least, that there are many opaque zones due to complexity of conglomerates of companies, trusts, and anonymity of capital transactions. If we want to know to the greatest extent what is going on as far as power moves it is necessary to have transparency of fundings and owning. There is a need to know beyond the apparent level, that is, the factual « I declare war » and all its intricacies. Accountability has to be linked to Power.
I know that it sounds naive but it seems important to see which country is in control of their money. The only one I would guess is China, but is it so? What about Russia? I hear that countries are getting free from the dollar official exchange currency, but what « real » good those that make, if the same financial groups just swapped side ( or rather said, pull the strings on both sides in order to stir to their convenience)? It seems that we are indeed in a dead-end…No kidding… Then appears the global « solution » for transparency : e-currencies! Great…
The only hope I have, at times, is to be able to stand as a human being with heart. Trusting in the process, listening and questioning, seeing the beauty even through the ugly. Grieve and praise, feel it all and let the heart shine, sincere, humble, courageous and genenerous. Free as I set and accept limitations for myself.
Much to go through. Being responsible rather than blaming. Laughing heartedly. To be continued.
Have a kind day.
byline – General Cosplay Killmore (America’s losingest General)
Here we are, Five Guns West, name checked by our heroes Pepe Escobar, Max Blumenthal, Ben Norton and everyone live at the Grey Zone and then on to …
This link leads to drunken NATO-NAZO foreign ministers, arm in arm, singing “Ve Are Ze Vorld, We Are Ze Peepul. These murderous bastards are blotto and having fun. They hardly look imposing. People that want war should lead the charge. Instead, these people look as treacherous as they undoubtedly are. This is like the early 60s, during the missile crisis. My mom and I would make tea, waiting for a nuclear vomit ball. Just like old times. Who would have ever thought that the human meatloaf, reeking of Vicks Vapor Rub, piss stains all over his trousers, vamping bad breath and bad vibes, ruling while nude with Depends from some pedo basement somewhere would have caused so much trouble. Well, I for one did. There isn’t an ass left unkissed for creepy Joe. Now, he brown noses us into war. Check out the link.
Not like the Cuban missile crisis at all, back then, they had to wear masks and practice social distancing……how far we come, in such a short period.
To be fair, I enjoyed the vid, the vindictive prick in me hopes they all catch a bug and die…now I’ll do Novina and ask for forgiveness.
LOL. We had to do duck and cover drills and other silly stuff. As a military brat we had them at school. Had to also stand outside in rows like in a POW camp, prior to class, while cheesy music played all over the base from cheesy speakers, salute the flag, hands over heart or your scout salute, as hundreds of kids said “I pledge OF allegiance” which is so daft.
You’re right. We have so far in so few years …
From one vindictive prick to another, I’m glad you enjoyed the video. After a Novina try a martini with Mother Cabrini. My grandfather was from Doolin. A good player of song and an Irish cop you’d never want to meet. I’ll see you a cold beer, a Craven A, and a nutrrrrrrrrricious plate of spuds….and raise you one!
A little note on a little fact. I just learnt the term « Astroturfing », to design the new form of social media propaganda, like Cambridge Analytica. The history of the term is interesting. It comes from Monsanto designing some synthetic/alive turf for baseball field in Houston Texas, so it doesn’t wear out. The « funny »thing is that that « Astroturfing », so efficient at manipulating elections, is the Orwellian way to replace « grassroots « .
Almost seamless reversed replica of reality… At least, as Doistoyevsky said, lies lead to truth: grassroots is the base for legitimate elections.
not alive at all, just disgusting plastic grass, called that because first used in the astrodome, the first mega indoor stadium, mostly about football. then of course sold to every high school etc. feels like s77t but no mud on the shiny uniforms.
Hi Dale. Yes I saw a picture which looked like it was plastic. I got tricked by assuming that if Montsanto engineering it, it must be a GMO thing. Silly me. But, on the Astroturfing subject, I just listened to some interesting news which expressed through that lens the difference between a president that understand the new social media technology and one who doesn’t. Interesting also that , among other social movements in the world, the gilets jaunes happened due to a change of algorithm by zuckenberg on Facebook, so people would be more connected locally. That is how, people started to find out that their neighbors had same anger about same stuff, in that case the rise of fuel prices. So the protests were started. Interesting… I just got into an “anger exchange” this morning on Facebook, actually about a protest in northern wisconsin. A friend was reproaching me to not have empathy for the abused ones protesting, whereas I was saying that it important to check who finance and who profit from those protests. Like the Democrats in power financing BLM. Anyway, it is all grist for the mill. Anger management.
It seems difficult to unite in the midst of misunderstandings, manipulation, blame, distortions, personal conditioning , high reactivity… Have a good day. Snowing here.
My sincere condolences for the loss of your mother.
Some flowers from our garden this summer.
(haven’t got a clue what this is, it was just suddenly there (we have got appr. 50 different flowers in our very short summer)).
This one is well known. A result of us feeding 40+ birds in the wintertime with sun-Flower seeds.
Thank you kindly Kent!
You are such a wonderful photographer.
In reply to the rhyme –
You are everywhere
where ever I go
you follow me there
no need to panic
we both are organic
I will be here
to remove forever
the terror so dear
bug you I wouldn’t
hug you I couldn’t
in search for a thrill
let’s not forget the drill
Life’s a game of dice
as often the best laid
plans of men and mice
What was really interesting was the sentence in the end:
Months ago I took a glimpse of the ‘Banned in China’ TV Tropes page, and, under the ‘Music’ section:
Certainly anyone can be outraged with the missile agreement by itself.
But if such a ban did exist, and if we assume that there was one, then I would be tempted to ask certain questions:
* Was this ban on Korean media supported by a majority of the Chinese population?
* What was the opinion of the average S. Korean on the missile agreement with the US?
* Which parts of the Korean entertainment (music, film, TV, etc.) industry are owned by the government, and which parts are owned by private businessmen (some of whom could be taxpayers in their own right)?
* Given that this was a joint agreement with the USA, were there similar calls to ban USian entertainment media as well? If not, then what was the difference such that South Korean media got the chop whereas USian media got a pass?
The WEF predicts that USA will be a shadow of itself come 2030. USA seems unaware of this from the look of things. Seems as though USA is going to make a last mad push for Full Spectrum Dominance.
Are there 2 factions in US power circles (not Rep/Dem split) fighting it out or about to?
Saxon Banks predictions:
I hear the military is not feeling so well, and just on the cusp of real head to head action.
Uncle Joe looked like he just ran out of steam today and have you seen the prices of used cars, the new gold.
We dont have enough quality people to do much of anything anymore, yet its expand the economy or face, you guessed, higher prices from less supply and more demand.
And the talk is that everyone appears ready for another bout of inflation, even the factions?
is there any articles here that talks about the alternative to global reset from world economic forum? if not you can just tell me what the title of the alternative are and the organization it came from. thank you
Nothing that I can remember, but perhaps start reading about Belt and Road.
Getting a few of the Chinese Twitter accounts that I follow complaining about the latest purge but I’ve been through most of the ones of value to me, and despite losing overnight losing thousands of ‘followers’, these accounts seem to be up and running.
Twitter purged accounts from Mexico, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Russia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Venezuela. It’s an education to read why! How complex can you make a lie?

-Lower yield due to eco farming and less fertilizer
-Higher production cost (fertilizer again)
-Higher cost to import food

Shams of Tabriz.
Why the angst, such tempest in the eyes
Why is everyone in this city distressed
The heart, but searches for an excuse to beat
Else, it becomes a lifeless stone; insensitive
Tell me friends, wherefrom this barren abode
Why is there only wilderness in the horizon
Have I, yet told a tale of sorrow or gloom
To disconcert the one who repents so soon
Lately, has there been a change in my appearance
Why then does the mirror get perplexed, on seeing me
– Shahryar (friend of the city)
man is a mirror,
but only reflects as much
truth as soul can hold

Three samples from “A Black and White Night” filmed in Los Angeles California Sept. 1987. Roy Orbison and Friends perform some of Orbison’s greatest hits at the Coconut Grove Nightclub. The very next morning a powerful 6.1 earthquake struck this part of LA…There were fears that the master film and videotapes hade been destroyed. But after the wreckage was cleared no damage had been done.
As you can see Roy Orbison had some big names backing him up. Hope you like this part of American Rock & Roll history as much as I do.

I do not know of any annexes to the Protocols, it was a rhetorical device. But perhaps the joke was on me? I knew off-hand that Huxley was deeply occultic person, who was influential in the post-WW2 Hollywood/California scene. He spent much of his time in USA high on psychedelics and as a Hollywood screenwriter in addition to being a 𝙙𝙮𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙥𝙞𝙖𝙣 novelist. I do not know much of him, as avoided that genre.
Then I entered this rabbit hole doing an online search:

The life’s calling of Huxley and others of his prominent British family appeared to be tailoring music, motion pictures, drugs, trauma-based MK-Ultra and/or altered history through sanitized education to the needs of brainwashing the mind of the masses.
His brother Julian invented the term, “𝙏𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙨𝙝𝙪𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙢!” The concept predates him of course, but we use a Huxley phrase nowadays. Most peculiar and dangerous family.

Remind you of concerts in general, and specifically of the recent Travis Scott Astroworld concert ritual? Again, the conditioning of the mass mind appeared to be a consistent interest of Huxley – and not towards a positive end. Cruel devils/satans have such approach towards humans too – make many into worker drones until they drop chasing Money, others addicted, others tormented/mad, others power-mad, etc.. Makes you wonder what Huxley was channeling under the influence of drugs.
I remember his book Brave New World was often required reading in schools of the 1980s.. How many generations were raised to anticipate and thus not fight the birthing of these days? To not bat an eye at the Utopia Rising needed to manage the base unruly Deplorable by a cadre of white-coated professionals wielding Objective Science?
(3) – Nov 22, 1963 had three interesting deaths. People only remember JFK. But Aldous Huxley and CS Lewis also died that same day! It was quite a ritual. Like Jesus and the 2 thieves? Mockery is their calling card. And the very numerology of 1122 = 666.. And to cap that seminal year, another brother of Huxley named Andrew won the Nobel Prize in Medicine, on work on the nerve impulses in the giant axons of a sea 𝙨𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙙. Interestingly, the Simpsons’ [Jan 2022?] US civil war episode (aired Halloween 2020) had squids near a deranged Homer sitting on a roof cradling a AR-15 while rioting surrounded him, and a New Hampshire lawmaker recently started babbling something about a ‘living organism with tentacles’ in mandated products.
Incidentally, squid have blue blood and were on traditional lists of unclean meats.. Don’t ask me what all this means, or if even really part of the witches brew. Perhaps the 3 illuminated and extremely well-greased Huxley brothers were honored for respectively naming, discovering the transmorphic ingredient X, and helping us visualize the dystopian milieu of the New Man of the New Era! What a disastrous dynasty from our perspective, a mini House of Medici!!
Thank you A.H.H. for the interesting links. The protocols are very specific and mundane. The writings of the Huxleys and probably Aleister Crowley also entrain and entrance individuals and are an appropriate annexes to the protocols because they allow the them to be implemented without notice.
Interesting nuggets from latest Duran team YT video,
▪︎ significant reductions in Russian diplomatic personnel in USA may impact UN staffing.. I seem to remember US was counting Russian UN staff alongside total allowed for DC embassy?
Implication: could this be roundabout way to get Russians and their pesky voting out of UNSC? Regardless, we return to what Amarynth and many expecting – time will soon come to move the UN out of NYC.
▪︎ US embassy @ Moscow degraded from 1,200 staff in 2017 to 120 now (and will lose another 50 soon..).
(1) This recently led to CIA hysteria at losing humintel capacity there.
(2) Very positive from Russian counter-espionage risk management perspective.
(3) this decrease in communications obviously increases risk for Big Power conflict, since less diplomacy and jaw-jaw possible. So it will play into hands of neocons and those who want to increase tensions overall… So Cold War 2 projected to get Colder indeed
(4) acute crisis for globalist faction which sees this ongoing Decoupling of their globalist infrastructure.. talk about Gordian Knots! So intensifying conflict projected among Deep state factions .. popcorn time as hefty lubrication is applied to Deep Throats and leaks should abound
▪︎ They ask, in new Iron Curtain of Cold War 2, who prospers? In old one, the Western side boomed tremendously (the 30 golden years) and East had stability but little prosperity..
▪︎ could the tyranny be on both sides of the divide, asks Alex? [Excellent point. Satanists are patient indeed. If NWO is not being rammed through in Zone B, can they continue their waiting game and wait to absorb Zone B later? I doubt it] Mercouris responds that Zone B this time looks much freer indeed, a reverse of 1945 – 91…
▪︎ We remain stuck on Ukraine/Taiwan (I would add West Asia too) – only way for sanity to return is if Empire gives up its claims so near other Powers’ borders and unilaterally deescalates. Zone B has no room for maneuver
▪︎ Last pregnant query by Alex: who will pay the price this time for building an Iron Curtain, if the two sides do it again? Germany paid price last time. Could entire EU be the new Germany? [Perhaps lights will stay out for a Deagle-long decade? Part of function of Iron Curtains is a deconfliction Wasteland, so Powers with agency on either side can get on with their lives and other business.. knives appear sharpened for Olde Europe..]
PS – nice color commentary by Mercouris on the recent masterful Russian démarche in Stockholm. The Inadequates were nonplussed! Hissyfits and overflowing M-sized Depends and all, as they retreat in leaky disarray to consult with Mephistopheles on what can be salvaged.
On one of the Saker’s articles discussing Lukashenko and a possible Belaruso-Russian union, I raised a question on which currency becomes used in this union. The Saker suggested that Russian rubles would be the “only option”.
I don’t know if any of us saw this coming, but…
Now, granted, this article did say Boris Yeltsin’s opinion on the topic. Now I have yet to hear of what Putin thinks.
Australia has three tiers of government
Voting at all three levels is compulsory. NSW state and local government elections are conducted by the NSW Electoral Commission which levies a $55 fine if you fail to vote, and fail to provide a valid reason for failure, when summoned. A further $65 fine is levied if you ignore the “apparent failure to vote” letter.
Despite unvaccinated people having been banished from civil society, shunned, harangued and maligned from every quarter, for the election, suddenly this was no – zero – nada, zilch issue.
Saturday Dec 4 and the 128 local councils in NSW held elections. The NSW Electoral Commission had heavily promoted its online “iVote” as a way to avoid standing in line …. And thus being the “COVID safe” option…
IVote was open for pre-polling for two weeks ahead of the Saturday 8am to 6pm polling place Election Day.
Of course, from about 9am, #iVote was trending on twitter, because, of course, the site had crashed…
Due to, according to the Electoral commission geniuses…”unusual high traffic to the site”.
I now consider elections of all flavours and permutations irrelevant and futile, but I still enjoy turning up to my local polling place…. encountering someone I haven’t seen in 40-odd years, despite residing in the same community… HaveAChat. Enjoy a democracy sausage (what’s a democracy sausage?— see link).
Despite the epic fail of iVote, I see this as a creeping way to subvert elections.
How anyone anywhere globally can have any confidence in electronic voting systems given the 2020 US presidential election……
I am pleased the iVote failed….. the outrage was such that the Electoral Commission- which had been tweeting fines would still apply for those who failed to vote…… has now backed down and won’t find people who can prove they tried to register but could not access the site.
“Everything Is Going According To Plan…For Now”
There are multiple methods that the global elite are employing to accomplish their goal of reserving fossil fuel, mitigating catastrophic climate change, and ,most crucially , human depopulation. Besides the never ending deadly boosters, which are diligently discussed by independent writers such as Paul Craig Roberts and Mike Whitney, very few (William Engdahl comes to mind) see the correlation between the the energy shortage , supply chain disruption , runaway inflation, and dearth of low-wage labor with the desired endgame. Michael Snyder continues to report on these findings in his blog, yet,unfortunately, does not “put the pieces of the puzzle together” or “connect the dots” analogous to that of a detective searching for clues in a crime scene investigation.
“Peak oil” is now an imminent issue as coal, natural gas, and oil are rendered scarce resources. Economics 101 of supply and demand in addition to inflation from irresponsible monetary policies will burden most households this winter. As wages do not rise proportionally to the exceeding cost to heating ones home, looming death rates, from freezing and other related illnesses, are on the horizon. For this will not just be a “Dark Winter” but a cold one as well.
Meanwhile factory hours, as we witness in China, are shortened as electricity is rationed out due to low supply. Consequently, there have been ongoing power shortages as the government attempts to curtail the country’s reliance on coal. The reason, as most of us are aware, is to comply with policies aimed at diminishing the rising pollution. This is going to be detrimental to countries that rely on imports, particularly the US., since essential products are part of global trade.
The reason for the dearth of energy sources is the lack of investment in research and development, maintaining the necessary infrastructure that keeps up with the global demand. Here’s an excerpt from Michael Snyder:
“We are facing an unprecedented global energy crunch. Demand for energy is continually rising, and the production of energy is not keeping pace. One of the biggest reasons for this is that large financial institutions have become extremely hesitant to fund any new energy projects that will add more carbon emissions to the environment. Instead, they want to fund projects that will help us transition to the new “green economy”, but meanwhile we are getting to a point where we will soon see widespread shortages of traditional forms of energy. So now we all get to suffer. A lack of oil is pushing the price of gasoline to alarming heights, shortages of natural gas are already causing tremendous disruptions in Asia and Europe, we are being told that we are facing a propane “armageddon” this winter, and supplies of coal have dropped to dangerously low levels around the world.
In other words, we are potentially heading into the most painful global energy crisis in modern history.”
William Engdahl explains:
“The price of energy from all sources conventional is exploding globally. Far from accidental, it is a well-orchestrated plan to collapse the industrial world economy that has already been weakened dramatically by almost two years of ridiculous covid quarantine and related measures. What we are seeing is a price explosion in key oil, coal and now especially, natural gas energy. What makes this different from the energy shocks of the 1970s is that this time, it is developing as the corporate investment world, using the fraudulent ESG green investment model, is dis-investing in future oil, gas and coal while OECD governments embrace horrendously inefficient, unreliable solar and wind that will insure the collapse of industrial society perhaps as early as the next months. Barring a dramatic rethinking, the EU and other industrial economies are willfully committing economic suicide .”
The goal is to phase out CO2 emissions by 2050 as part of the Green Energy Agenda. Finance Capital, companies such as BlackRock, are forcing investment firm conventional sources to highly inefficient and unreliable “renewable” such as wind and solar energy. Keep in mind that the CEO of BlackRock has joined the board of the World Economic Forum, proving that they are in compliance with the Great Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution. Basically the rebranding of the New World Order. Wall Street is well aware that Green Energy is both a hoax and a scam, yet they will reap huge profits nonetheless on speculating in the commodities futures market.
William Engdahl concludes:
“The Green Energy Agenda of the EU, US and other governments along with the Davos-promoted ESG investing will only guarantee that as we go forward there will be even less gas or coal or nuclear to fall back on when the wind stops, there is a drought in hydroelectric dams or lack of sunshine. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize this is a road to economic destruction. But that’s in fact the goal of the UN 2030 “sustainable” energy or the Davos Great Reset: population reduction on a massive scale. We humans are the frogs being slowly boiled. And now the Powers That Be are really turning the heat up.”
The Green Agenda or How This Energy Crisis is Different from All Others
SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTION
The supply chain gridlock is the result of government policies to shut down the economy during the height of the pandemic as in lockdowns on “Main Street”. This created a chain reaction effect where one sector of the economy impacted another and so on. This article discusses the consequences.
“The surging demand was met with limited supply of everything. Ports, warehouses, and trucking companies have been experiencing labor shortages. Lack of containers limited the amount of goods available for export, resulting in overloaded warehouses. Even when containers of goods arrived at the ports, there was a shortage of container chassis for truckers to haul loaded containers. Moreover, the ports that were full of loaded containers, did not have enough space to receive empty containers back. All of that was causing disruptions for arriving ships to unload.”
Why global supply crisis is here to stay — RT Business News
And here’s an enlightening op-Ed from RT
Pandemonium looms for the world as the ‘Everything Shortage’ meets a ‘Dark Winter’ thanks to collapsing global supply chains — RT Op-ed
“A global supply chain crisis is brewing, leading to a full-spectrum shortage of essential items. This is the result of mass centralization, where policies are dictated and synchronized by the aristocrats of the New Normal”
I agree with Dr Maavak that these policies were dictated from higher authority and then passed onto national and local governments to enforce them upon their citizens. The global elite surely predicted the reverberations from closing the real economy for months in addition to perhaps the greatest transfer of wealth. As small and medium sized enterprises went out of business, giant corporations were waiting to pick up their market share. Amazon and Walmart are prime examples. This led to more poverty and subsequently a rise in mortality. As inflation is the direct outcome from scarcity, food prices are not exempt. Healthy diets become less affordable as meals with high nutritional value are out of reach for many low income households. This will eventually lead to health problems such as obesity and diabetes. Again, death rates will climb exponentially. Mental health issues, stemming from despair and depression, such as opioid addiction and suicide will increase dramatically as well. Not to mention that crime rates, particularly in metropolitan areas, will substantially increase as we already see in major cities such as Chicago. All part of the plan to monopolize scarce resources by reducing the growing population. For consumerism must be mitigated as “there isn’t enough stuff to go around for everyone anymore”.
One of the reasons, as I have just discussed, is the increase cost of energy, specifically the “price at the pump”. Since it cost more to deliver products, that extra cost is inevitably passed to the consumer. What stands out the most is the large increase in the price of groceries. The other reason is that the Federal Reserve has unprecedentedly printed about 7 trillion dollars in literally a few short months since the lockdowns. Consequently the Federal debt is now close to an unfathomable 29 trillion dollars. This reckless monetary policy is beyond irresponsible and most independent economists would concur with such as assessment. To flood the real economy with so much liquidity and not visualize how they would impact the value of the Dollar is truly unimaginable. Now we have reached the point of no return.
Egon von Greyerz explains:
“The central bankers can either squash the chronic inflation by tapering and at the same time create a liquidity squeeze that will totally kill an economy in constant need of stimulus. Or they can continue to print unlimited amounts of worthless fiat money whether it is paper or digital dollars.
If central banks starve the economy of liquidity or flood it, the result will be disastrous. Whether the financial system dies from an implosion or an explosion is really irrelevant. Both will lead to total misery.”
That’s basically the dire predicament we face today. The global elite predicted the dollar would plummet and hence erode the purchasing power of the vast majority of Western Civilization. Once wages cannot keep pace with the exponentially increasing rate of inflation, bankruptcies, homelessness, and crime will be the natural outcome. Poverty will become the norm and dependency on government subsides will reach record levels. For “you will own nothing and be happy” so goes the message from the WEF. By the way, if more deaths come to mind, rest assure, you are not alone. Reminiscent of 20th Century Communism, except with the capability as capacity to monitor ones every move due to the advent of technology. With the ever expanding population size, national and local governments will be overwhelmed to handle such a load. Hence the need to “cull the herd” in order to reach a manageable level.
Some readers are probably shaking their heads as in wondering why would those in position of power would want to destroy the primary pillar of power wielded by the US empire. Since the almighty greenback is the worlds reserve currency, why on God’s green earth would they sacrifice it. Logically, they would want to preserve that status at all costs goes the thought process. This is where only those who comprehend that the system of global Capitalism is transitioning to an entirely new one will see why these counterintuitive policies are implemented throughout the globe. A paradigm shift in interpreting reality if you will. The supranational actors and their Think-tanks understood that the current path of consumption and consumerism with an ever growing population on a finite planet with finite resources is simply unsustainable and that the time to act is now. This technocratic totalitarianism that they pictured has no national borders and thus renders traditional geopolitics totally antiquated and obsolete for all practical matters. This a global system that will eventually replace any countries currency with an ubiquitous digital one. Bank accounts can instantly be frozen as punishment for those pesky non compliant and insubordinate dissidents. China is already ahead of the game with their highly sophisticated mass surveillance, biometric identification and credit scoring systems.
LOW WAGE LABOR SHORTAGE
As I have discussed the energy crisis, accelerating inflation, and the supply chain bottleneck, they are all intertwined and affect one another as well what is currently amiss in the labor market, specifically certain sectors that rely on low-wage workers. A ripple effect indeed. One example that comes to mind is the lack of truck drivers. This is related to the supply chain crisis. There are two reason for this shortage. The first is inflation. Since the cost of living has significantly increased, there is no longer any incentive to work for low wages. The second one is vaccine mandates. Many employees refuse it comply if they believe that their health my be compromised from experimental jabs, especially if they can’t earn a living on certain salaries. The elite will take advantage of this opportunity by promoting the replacement of human labor with machines, a justification to expedite their agenda. An example would be driverless vehicles to replace all those missing truck drivers. With technology advancing at an exponential rate, more and more human labor will be automated with highly sophisticated A.I. and robotics. Consequently, humans will be rendered superfluous. Not only low-wage workers refuse to comply with vaccine mandates. There have numerous reports of airline pilots, air traffic controllers, police officers, firefighters, teachers, and health care professionals such as nurses who were terminated for noncompliance. These are critical personnel that keep our society functioning properly…till now. We are witnessing the beginning of a breakdown. We already see more looting and robberies such as the recent one at Northern California. For it is only a matter of time before there is an escalation of violent crime as well. Exactly what the globalists prefer-keep us living in fear as death rates rise from socio-economic collapse.
Here’s Robert F. Kennedy Jr.:
“As Dr. Fauci’s policies took hold globally, 300 million humans fell into dire poverty, food insecurity, and starvation. “Globally, the impact of lockdowns on health programs, food production, and supply chains plunged millions of people into severe hunger and malnutrition,” said Alex Gutentag in Tablet Magazine. According to the Associated Press, during 2020, 10,000 children died each month due to virus-linked hunger from global lockdowns. In addition, 500,000 children per month experienced wasting and stunting from malnutrition—up 6.7 million from last year’s total of 47 million—which can permanently damage children physically and mentally, transforming individual tragedies into a generational catastrophe. Deferred medical treatments for cancers, kidney failure, and diabetes killed hundreds of thousands of people and created epidemics of cardiovascular disease and undiagnosed cancer. Unemployment shock is expected to cause 890,000 additional deaths over the next 15 years.”
Here’s Michael Snyder:
“Sometimes it takes a great tragedy to get us focused on what really matters. Over the past couple of years, millions upon millions of people have died all over the globe, and millions more will soon die. Most of us tend to think that we will live to a very advanced age, but the truth is that death has come for many a lot sooner than they expected. Personally, I have been absolutely shocked by the number of people that have been suddenly dropping dead in recent weeks. There are those that I knew personally that are now gone permanently. There are others that did work that I greatly admired that have passed away way too early. Death is seemingly everywhere, and I expect to see the death toll continue to rise in 2022.”
To surmise, what this “pandemic” is about is a concerted effort by supranational actors, world organizations, and global conglomerates against the vast majority of humanity for monopolization of resources, control, and depopulation.
There are myriad reasons for these global plan initiatives by the intentional release of the bio-engineered virus. The first is that very powerful A.I., automation, and sophisticated robotics will eventually minimize the need for human labor and consequently will render a vast segment of the global population superfluous and obsolete. Universal basic income, as brainstormed by many, is logistically untenable and, pragmatically speaking, not something the owners of the means of production are dying to offer to those they consider “useless eaters”. The second reason is catastrophic climate change that is only going to magnify in scope as the population size increases exponentially. Now before anyone automatically reacts that it is unverifiable needs to understand that this is the belief of the planners and whether or not we subscribe to it is irrelevant in the given context. The third and final reason is the depletion of fossil fuel on a global level.
Advancement in technology elicits a warm welcome as it makes life easier and reduced tedious and boring Manuel labor. Yet the conundrum is that under capitalism, or more accurately the market economy, it will inadvertently increase the unemployment rate. The number of jobs lost will greatly surpass the new ones that will be created to service the machines. Even the more lucrative positions will be replaced as algorithms will substitute human cognitive capacity. This is already a reality to some degree and will only accelerate in the not so distant future. So what do we do with all these hungry and desperate souls is the rhetorical question. Followed by do we wait for the “last minute” or so we comprise a contingency? I’m sure by now you get the point.
The climate change issue is quite controversial indeed. If the carbon footprint is contributing to an inevitable ecological disaster then what would be a better why to halt human activity than….well you can figure out the rest. This is a segue to the need to conserve fossil fuel as it it being diminished at a faster rate than it is replenished. Ironically, since the system of global capitalism is focused on short-term return on investments it does not take into consideration the amount of fuel required to move goods around the globe in comparison to self sustainably on local and even national levels. Since most the remaining jobs simply require computers
and monitors , working remotely is now part of the “new normal”.
I want to add that I cannot emphasized enough the financial aspect in this multi variable equation, specifically the significant role of central banks. Catherine Austin Fitz eloquently explains it in this must watch interview which will aid the reader to “get the whole picture”.
Catherine Austin Fitts | 2nd Full Interview | Planet Lockdown – Forbidden Knowledge TV
What we are basically facing is a trajectory to an unprecedented economic and political system best described as “Technocracy”. “Techno-tyranny” would probably be a better representation as it unveils any euphemism. What we can and should expect in the foreseeable future is mass electronic surveillance via 5G telecommunication, intrusive contact tracing, security checkpoints, lockdowns, internal passports, biometric IDs , credit scoring, and digital currency. In addition, privatization will spike as governments will bow down to supranational corporations. Finally, national governments will lose all their sovereignty and become fully subservient to these international actors. Hence, they will be eventually unified into a single global entity. By the way, this is already noticeable on a cultural level world wide, as uniformity is projected for optimal consumerism. Don’t forget that small and medium sized business will also fall by the waist side as the corporate juggernaut will vanquish any and all competitors. In other words, a tyrannical Brave New World awaits us. That’s the end game.
The window to act without violence is quickly closing as protests and civil disobedience is proving to be ineffective and thus futile in attempting to change the course we are headed on. As CJ Hopkins emphasizes:
“Now, I want to be absolutely clear. I am not advocating or condoning violence. But it is going to happen. It is happening already. Totalitarianism (even this “pathologized” version of it) is imposed on society and maintained with violence. Fighting totalitarianism inevitably entails violence.
It is not my preferred tactic in the current circumstances, but it is unavoidable now that we have reached this stage, and it is important that those of fighting this fight recognize that violence is a natural response to the violence (and the implicit threat of violence) that is being deployed against us by the New Normal authorities, and the masses they have whipped up into a fanatical frenzy.
It is also important (essential, I would argue) to make the violence of the New Normal visible, i.e., to frame this fight in political terms, and not in the pseudo-medical terms propagated by the official Covid narrative). This isn’t an academic argument over the existence, severity, or the response to a virus. This is a fight to determine the future of our societies.”
As extreme measures are imposed on the unvaccinated with authoritarian house arrest in Austria and draconian quarantine camps in Australia, how much longer before the majority of the Western World will say “enough is enough”?
Will insouciance prevail as Dr Paul Craig Roberts points out in his analysis? Aaron Hawkins (Storm Clouds Gathering) believes that a War is coming- not one of nation state vs another but rather “we the people” vs the global elite. This government authorities will the first line of defense, giving off the appearance as if they are in charge of policy rather than obeying orders from higher up the pyramid. Even, Putin’s Russia, the darling of the alt-media, is not exempt, as this article debunks the myth (Sorry Saker but the “bromance” is over). For they are an integral part of the global order.
Myth vs. reality in COVID Russia – OffGuardian
This war they are waging, make no mistake, is a spiritual one. It’s a wage by an inhuman system that supports the billionaire class(or more accurately, on a profound level, the sociopathic billionaires that preserve it). The essence of what makes us human is at stake as we loss all our autonomy and become “part of the machine”. For we are meant to be free, whether by nature or higher power. Many religious leaders believe that the prophecy from the Book of Revelations is at hand as we await the second coming of the Christ. This time around however it will not be in a corporeal form as it it quite limiting in its capabilities. Nonetheless, I believe that there has to be unity amongst us in order to win this battle.
The fact that we are fragmented is the result of Identity Politics and the Woke movement. The elite have divided us along racial lines using their media outlets and the education system. They have managed to incite and anger both blacks and whites with mistrust and resentment of one another. A current example is BLM. They have been portrayed as peacefully protesting for a noble cause, while the reality of the matter couldn’t be further from the truth. Tucker Carlson had done an exemplary job demystifying this illusion by showing us video footage of vandalism arson, mob violence, and rioting in both, back and white neighborhoods. Also exposed that financial oligarchs, such as George Soros, have been sponsoring this chaos. At the same time, the corporate media intentionally mislead the public with their coverage of the “Stop the Steal” protests at the Oval Office. Instead of accurately reporting the actual grievances, such as the economic effect of the lockdowns on small business owners, they instead bombarded us with inflammatory terms such as “white supremacy” to vilify and discredit the participants. Time is running out for us to get “our act together”. There is still some hope however. I’m referring specificity to the military and the police, the “enforcers and protectors of national and local governments respectively. Many have been discharged and fired for not willing to take the “vaccines”( more accurately gene editing bio-tech operating systems). Here’s why.
Research “Game-changer”: Spike Protein Increases Heart Attacks and Destroys Immune System, by Mike Whitney – The Unz Review
If enough disenfranchised personnel feel betrayed by the government they sworn to serve and protect, then that may prove to be a game changer. Also, If the religious prophecy is correct, than so is the phrase, “God only helps those who help themselves.” Another applicable idiom is the obvious “together we stand, divided we fall”. All I can say at this point is….good luck to us all….for we will sure need it.
Still those with sanity here. Excellent comment as always Allen – this will be shared widely..

So it begins dear Amarynth?
Like in the Court of Pharaoh when the Mighty Magicians threw.. in our time, they will power up the Beam and we shall gape looking up.. Don’t believe your lying eyes!
And the news cycle must be filled too, at all costs.. If no Big War, other distractions will roll out. All life’s a show to the demented!
Recalling Nevil Shute’s novel it occurs to me that antarctica is about as isolated a place as there is, and the best place to hid in case of an atomic war in the northern hemisphere. There’s not much mixing of the atmosphere between north and south, and the very hot particles and the smoke would be less than anywhere else at the southpole- and I assume they have prepared sites with provisions to conserve the important people, so to say, and yes perhaps even the 10:1 ratio of ladies of “stimulating nature” , as Strangelove put it. They’re nuts, and do nutty stuff. And they are slaves to vice.
Yes, sadly, it does look dire. I will hold off on the ufoz and lost civilizations. My assumption is “they” are afraid and are sure to run away if there’s danger to their skin. And they’re running away.
27:51min to the season finale in Fortnite, they sanboxed us into a square with no fighting.
Just waiting and watching the timer😂Sometimes i wonder why i like this game so much🤦♂️
But it is a great way to empty the mind for a few hours, jousting with strangers seeing who win a pointless game.
Per. I had/ have no, comprehensively zero, idea about what you posted.
Selected the option, “better say nothing and be thought a fool, rather than speak and remove all doubt” [theres probably posters and lurkers here thinking I’d do well to employ that almost permanently…]anyway…
So then I see #FortniteFlipped trending and venture some clicks.
Still have *no clue* what I’m viewing.
Some….things are jumping out at me….
Flip your world and a new one will be revealed.
Now, up until 2021, I woulda just glided right on by….
Is this more predictive programming?
I know globally millions and millions and millions (billions?) of teens, young men, older men, and even older men, and females, enjoy gaming….so whatever all this is, it’s reaching deep into a collective consciousness, and ~unconsciousness~.
And, picking up on the posts about Antarctica [always fascinating, and a topic with a sharp, slippery slope into “weird”, “wacko”, “weirdo” categories ]</i]. What is all this about “revealing” an island, and “working together” to achieve the reveal?
Per, you seem to have a foot in both camps…. What do you think.??
Yesterday was a solar eclipse, ‘wonders in the heavens above and on the earth below’ (Acts 2.19) and may auger any amount of possibilities, depending on the outlook of the beholder, as in times gone by this would have been considered an evil omen, and may still be but with the courage of new thinking could prove decisive in other ways, and bring about positive changes, changes in thinking even.
Look upwards and for the for the good!
Gregorian Chant, for Christmas, don’t you love the donkey and the ass!
Your comment is very perceptive and I think relevant to ongoing engineering of global chaos.
The youth are being incited and emotionally attacked.
The satanists wish to use them as useful idiots to burn down own entire house.
This same message – of “𝙛𝙡𝙞𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙..” exists in all current entertainment memes – whether video games, movies, books, social media…
In the 5th Wave movie, the youth were the oppressors who were brainwashed to exterminate the adult survivors of the first 4 waves.. And similar message in many movies – Dune, the Purge series, etc..
Porn, violent video gaming, hook-up sex culture, lack of spirituality (houses of worship closed or circumscribed during covid), invincibility-inducing drugs such as meth/Captagon, wifi EMF influencing, etc.. are mediums of their training too. See what damage young inflamed extremists high on Captagon did to state structures in West Asia.. imagine this wave unleashed everywhere. IMO this is coming soon, once they activate it for West/Zone A (after a proper softening-up period, like in Iraq 1991-2003)..
and note the carrot at the end of the meme, “… 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙖 𝙣𝙚𝙬 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙚 𝙧𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙙.”
It is like the Q op for older folks – a hope-porn promising the Savior or the end of misery soon, as long as you stick with the plan and stay in your allocated lane.
What they will come to understand is that the “new one” is the NWO totalitarian slave state where they will come to look back on their old miseries with wistfulness.
There is a huge ongoing war for the hearts and minds of our youth, to be the very avengers who dismantle human civilization. The entire soft power of Empire is focusing them, driving them to this desired end.
perhaps it is predictive programming, but in my case i just use it to empty my mind from war, terror and analysis for a few hours so i wont go mad.
If that makes any sense,, i talk with friends, play with my sisters kids and such.
I am no gamer, i am old enough to remember Nintendos first machine and was the perfect age to get addicted to Super Mario bros but lost interest until my sistets kids started playing.
I do think that the Metaverse is unhealthy for children and not a place i want to waste to much time in..
Stepping back in time.
You all may remember some posters here who were supporters of a certain group banned on the Saker blog. (Moderation Rule 14 if you want to know. I’m not discussing that, but I wrote at the time a number of deep dives and debunks of this phenomenon mainly over at the community site, and eventually, the Saker banned the topic over here).
Some considered it so important that they openly said they don’t care about the Saker’s rules here, and they will talk because it is of extreeeme importance – the best thing since sliced bread at least. Some lost their heads and the Saker chopped some heads as well. Oh man, did I receive hatred :-) Lots of it! But this movement broke apart families, parents and children, friends, marriages and loved ones and kept a large part of the US population digging into meaninglessness.
Now, it seems like the big names in that movement have all staggered back. I did say at the time it was dying and it is only a long thin tail remaining. Now, everyone, even the acolytes say it was an op. I went further at the time and said it was an op, but ran along the lines of a cult. I wonder what all those YouTubers are doing today? Still spreading fear porn I would guess.
I wish I had the energy to feel some schadenfreude but we gotta save our energy for the next while.
All that hatred – good heavens – glad that one is over and done with. It made me a stronger and unfortunately a less trusting person. And now we have a post pandemic stress disorder. Yeah Right!
Careful what you believe folks. The next while is going to be wall-to-wall propaganda, fear porn, good people that are just clutching out and clutching at any straw that makes sense, anything. Do all that you need to do to remain at an even keel. Careful with reading too much fear porn. Remember the story of this group – flamed out after taking many people down a dizzy ride with them. Perhaps some learned something, but the one thing that they did learn was to be crazy scared of everything and they also learned to have their heads turned around for them! There was a lot of damage to people.
A gentle reminder here to all, wherever hope springs, wherever potential is felt and promoted, and where world darkness and foulness are exposed with courage and truth, there goodwill is engendered that creates invisible bonds of brotherhood.
Mr “b” @ MoA has new essay, which if memory serves, dove-tails to opinion amarynth previously expressed. In part> Mr ‘b’ writes> ” I am convinced by now that the U.S., NATO and the Ukraine have planned to attack the rebel held grounds in eastern Ukraine in early February 2022.” and “The Ukrainian attack will likely have only little success. But the rebels can not hold for long without significant reinforcement. The Ukrainian army attack will thus provoke Russia into intervening. That counter-intervention will then get reported as the ‘long expected Russian attack on Ukraine’.”
Along these lines recall the wonderful Zakharova who explains on the YT ( https://youtu.be/nrxsW3O_r-8 )
how the Reich uses the might forces of propaganda. I remember her saying this.
Yes, bigbig rodeo @ oly time does look like it
Greenwood [of whom I retain a generous skepticism due to his involvement in both Snowden and Assange outcomes] has an Oct24 tweet @ggreenwald
That references a piece at Vanity Fair [a MSM organ, and thus, of which I am also skeptical].
That’s it… that’s my post….. Many Cafeistas and especially Leprechaun, Mr P, A.H.H, and Col, if he ever scans by here anymore, may be intrigued to follow my anaphylactic-styled twitching hint…
Assange: The goal is endless war, not a successful war.
The purpose…. Recycle $$$$€€€£££$$$$ through (Afghanistan(or, say now Ukraine/Taiwan) into the pockets and projects of the military-intel elite.
When Russian President Vladimir Putin visits India on Monday for a short but important trip on the occasion of the annual summit on December 6, it would not only be an affirmation of multipolarity in geo-politics but also of upholding the principle of strategic autonomy in geo-politics.
This will be his first standalone bilateral trip since the pandemic. President Putin was in Geneva earlier this year for a summit with his US counterpart Joe Biden, but that was in a third country. The Russian president is essentially making a statement that India is a priority for him over and above many of Moscow’s other partners.
Commentators have often missed the fact that Russia does not want to play the role of junior partner in its relationship with China. Legacy and military strength apart, the size of the Russian territory and its huge natural reserves including unexplored reserves including in the Arctic often guides Moscow’s power projection.
According to Pushpesh Pant, professor, international relations at Jawaharlal Nehru University, President Putin’s visit is much more important than it has ever been in the past five to six years.
“What India is realising now is that over-dependence with America is not probably very reliable because what happened to Quad shows India that Americans can suddenly shift from Quad to Aukus to their own backyard, and retreat from Afghanistan, have more concern about Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. India realises that if it doesn’t reinforce ties with Russia, Russia will gradually become even more reinforced from fortifying with China”.
Russian envoy to India Nikolai Kudashev said that the visit will provide impetus to the bilateral relationship of Moscow and New Delhi.
“This (India-Russia) is a relationship of a specially privileged and strategic partnership that envisages a unique level of confidence and mutual understanding and the summit would give practical, pragmatic and economic outcomes,” he said.
“Thus sometimes the leaders would touch upon on very sensitive issues exclusively meant for such kind of relationship. Afghanistan is our common concern,” he said.
“The 21st Annual India-Russia Summit will not be an ordinary summit, it will be a historical summit. The summit will give the new impetus to the bilateral ties,” the ambassador said.
While President Putin will arrive in Delhi on Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu are reaching on Sunday night.
According to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), PM Modi and President Putin will begin the summit talks at 5:30 pm and the Russian leader will emplane from Delhi at 9:30 pm.
The two sides are also likely to wrap up the final phase of negotiations for a logistics support agreement, which is likely to be signed either during the two-plus-two talks or at the summit.
In reflection of their time-tested defence ties, India and Russia are also set to renew for the next decade a framework for military-technical cooperation at the summit besides announcing a joint commission on technology and science.
The two sides may also firm up a number of defence procurement proposals besides deliberating on the long-pending project for joint production of 200 twin-engine Kamov-226T light helicopters for Indian armed forces. Supply of the first squadron of S-400s is a testimony to decades-old defence partnership. New Delhi and Moscow have been steadfast in their support for each other’s territorial sovereignty.
The pacts to be signed will cover a wide range of areas including trade, energy, culture, defence and technology.
There is a deep and profound connection between India and the Slavic world, in that our
respective languages have common roots which go back thousands of years.
Please take note of the above document, Sudhi; you may like to archive it. Contains a Glossary
which I’m sure you’ll find fascinating.
Thank you Dimitar, for the most interesting and informative paper on “The Comparative Linguistic Method”, regarding similarities of Indian and Slavic languages, and the close relation between Sanskrit and Macedonic languages.
From the paper itself the relationship between the languages becomes apparent. Though, I’m not so proficient in Sanskrit, having only studied for a small while in school, a close friend of mine did his Master’s in Sanskrit. I will request him to give an analysis of the paper, and will share it, if he does so.
Previously we here have had some dialogue in respect to the dope economy and trade. The unitary nature of government, organized crime, and big business. This seems, by the way, like a definition of fascism, but never mind. Withal, a video at YT https://youtu.be/vMmeImFzYRk

For bigger picture see Alfred McCoy…Heroin and more, much more…
It occurs to me, well, us, since Mrs P and I agree, that a pirate economy, let us say before steam, but in the days of the European diaspora by sail, a pirate economy required not only ships and buccaneers and captains, but a safe haven. Ships need overhauls and bottom cleaning, sailors need other things, hemp must be grown, canvas woven and sewn, and grain and cattle, and grog be brewed and spirits distilled, powder milled, metals forged and founded….because of this objective fact, capitalism in a model form – the forge, the boat works, the lumber-mill and whorehouse and the gardens and the pubs are all owned and managed. Thus in the Pirate lair do we note the essential features of crime, industry, government, and criminal violence (with gunpowder!) and their looting and observe that the proto-fascist form is that of the pirate lair.
If, one assumes, that the model scales..can we suggest an example?
Anyway, the idea of the pirate lair as model was new to my thoughts, and I want to share it.
