A little bit of colour to brighten up these dark, depressing times. Happy New Year to all, wherever you may be…
God’s Careless Beauty
God loads His brush with vermilion and gold,
Takes aim and renders the glory of dawn.
A quick rinse in the ocean and morning unfolds,
As the world fills with light and a new day is born.
With pallet in hand and pause to reflect;
“There’s a knee of seacoast I’d like to address.”
Bistered escarpments, hitherto unchecked,
Are subtly reworked and bring an, “Ah, yes!”
His attention then turns to the horizon far-off,
Where gathering clouds are stained with grey.
A cold front on the move, preceded by a trough –
Prussian blues and indigoes, the order of the day.
With the storm at last spent, the desert is next,
Where the dust devils swirl over shifting sands.
Here, russets and umbers create the effects,
As His blessings rain down all through the badlands.
Then it’s time for all creatures both great and small,
As an array of fine brushes suddenly appears!
Each adjustment is made for the inevitable long haul,
From the spots on the leopard to the mouse’s ears.
Meanwhile in the city, the sirens sound shrill,
Echoing through labyrinths of concrete and steel.
The Master, once again, with consummate skill,
Brings colour to a world that’s turned surreal.
A break, night descends, and God’s work resumes,
With a touch so deft and wisdom impearled;
Working wonders with hearts, He drives away gloom,
And sowing fresh dreams, renews the world!
As he loads up His brush with vermillion and gold,
Taking aim and rendering the glory of dawn;
God’s careless beauty like a vision unfolds,
And the world fills with light as a new day is born!
Haiku Thread ( Invitation to one and all… )
their young, jetblack cat slinking
by in the shadows
you’ve saddled your horse
and are getting ready to leave –
how cold my heart
the subtlest haiku –
rising breeze, rippling surface,
he who prays to God
and ties up his camel, leaves
no room for error
when the day finally comes,
the night will be only
a distant frightening memory;
waking up inside the dream
Way too many products used in Russia and China use US parts or patents somewhere in their supply chain. Or,are using other products that have that same fatal issue.Or,the use of sanctions stops other outside companies from working with Russia or China.A good example is the pipelaying ship that was forced to stop work on Nord Stream 2 delaying it for almost a year,giving time for the political forces in Germany that opposed it,time to come up with another way to stop it. It’s time that Russia and China develop their own parts for industrial products. In Russia’s case the oil and gas industry’s tools and equipment.In China’s case in particular, computer chips of their own. From this article in RT it looks like China is already planning that,now is Russia’s turn to follow suit.
Yet this is what diplomacy is supposed to be about.
Not just some part, nearly all items today are made in China, how easy is it then to create a policy of politically motivated trade restrictions just b/c the ball is in ones court and the opponent is playing rough?
The Russians have been patient, when patience is most needed.
The year 2022 is the setting for the dystopian movie Soylent Green – in which an over-populated, climate ravaged population is only sustained by consuming the nutrients from rendered and processed human corpses. Two years ago, we might have shaken our heads at just how wrong the film’s director Richard Fleischer turned out to be. Today, after two years of Covid lockdowns and restrictions which have undermined supply chains, created energy shortages, and left food rotting in the fields, Fleischer’s version of 2022 looks a lot closer to reality than the wild optimism of the UK’s Chancellor or the techno-utopianism of the Davos crowd.
Don’t worry, VVP and the other Russian elite will give the World’s plebes’ 2G for free (grain & gas) – just so long as they maintain an unsocial distance.
Some as equally disturbing dystopian movies are set in 2020s-2030s.. incidentally Fleisch is the German word for meat! Was he related to the indomitable Ari Fleischer?
Regarding contrived disruption of supply chains and famine, we have discussed this a lot recently.. it is a fake set up for apocalyptic times, to level the west to a 5th world status. The Social Contract between rulers and ruled has been abrogated, but the latter were not given the memo.
And I think at heart it is a spiritual war. How near grace will those be who feed on other humans? Through usury, westerners have been feeding on the blood sweat and tears of mankind for centuries, but the rational leap to the physical feeding seems on the cards, as the final humiliation. And many will not hesitate when the hunger pangs hit. Indeed, elite bloodlines long savored human meat at their banquets and the “delicacy” is now being rolled out to the submissive plebs.
Maybe the ongoing cannibalism project aims to remove the grace and mercy of the Lord to make our annihilation certain? Dark Forces succeeded stripping prior civilizations of this grace through indulging in abominations, so that destruction was baked into the futures of those civilizations.. They plot day and night to suggest our ignorant self-destruction. Every contingency box is being ticked to ensure the collapse of US America.
Also consider the rumors for many years of human meat in various fast food chains, especially McDonalds. I wonder if there is a correlation of regular consumers of these fast foods with kuru-like dementia? Angela Merkel had terrible body tremors and shakes in recent years, even during parades with visiting dignitaries.. Dementia has exploded in recent decades in western countries and those which adopted the western lifestyle..
CAF and those who know the game have long advocated avoiding prepared meat displayed in supermarkets – anything which you do not see butchered or do not know the integrity of the butcher.
The Fool, the Blind Men and the Agreement Between Them
Hell’s fires never burned so hot,
As when the fool bemoaned his lot.
And, consenting to give his wrath free reign,
All Satan’s demons unconstrained.
Never did the blind stoop so low,
As when they took the fool in tow;
And, with avarice conspired to stir the pot,
And so enrich their own poor lot.
They hitched their wagons to their mules,
Of sovereign lands they made cesspools;
Of imagined slights made full grown knights,
And destroyed overnight, all sacred sites!
Some weeks ago I saw the trailer for the upcoming Nu Pogodi! CG reboot. As much as I’d like to see new adventures centering on Volk and Zayats, I can’t help but notice how much negative publicity the trailer got, even after YouTube disabled the dislike counter. Heck, even the son of the original creator did not want the reboot to be made and even ordered (state-owned?) Soyuzmultfilm to cancel it. What does this mean for the integrity of Soyuzmultfilm?
So far I have yet to figure out what it is about Japan and South Korea that makes them relatively less “woke” than the Anglosphere even as occupied vassals of the US.
One thing I like in anime is how lip movements aren’t obligated to match the spoken dialogue, a practice I’ve noticed in Western (and even Russian) animation which I honestly find to be pointless – the work isn’t going to be aesthetically realistic anyway, so what’s the point? (Some might probably see it differently)
Now I just gotta find a decent anime that has no spoken dialogue à la Tom and Jerry, Mr. Bean, or Warner Bros.’ Wile E. Coyote short films…
Thank you for the New Year Haiku bursts, take a little haiku from my palms…
Dark weeks of wet clouds
Two white birds swirling together
In light’s swift winds now
Don’t dim my freedom
By telling me who I am
Life is but a guest’s guesses
Last summers borage
Flutterby blue, fallen now
Corpse across grey stone
We have a brief time
To meet and then separate
A comet passing…
Is hiding deep in your eyes
You can’t have it now
Front door Haiku drift
Fluffy light ice has arrived
Your boots are white capped
Faint new year bells
Enchanted distant ringing
Rocking the baby
Five seven and five
Hide the haiku’s laughing lines
He that hath ears to hear . . .
lovers loving love;
a thousand lanterns released
into the night sky
praying for rain
one too many times; the house
I lived in swept away
in spring, giving thanks for
the gift of life
lost and alone,
a ghost looking for springtime
over withered moors
Hapless crowds watch
The lanterns floating on high
And think all is well
My haiku pen now
Banished to the cabinet
It’s power too strong
(by strong is meant overwhelm in a sense. all of mine are in the traditional format of syllables per line – 5,7,5, so, the Japanese sure knew a thing or two; )
lovers build the house
of love while men of reason
and sceptics look on
to see is to believe
but to believe is to see,
to know and to be
I shall keep my heart
among the stars where none
shall hunt it out
There’s a spectacle in our dreams,
the head on the pillow remains
As the mist covers our eyes,
a pebble in our hand remains
The beloved earlier resided in our heart,
now a photo in the wallet remains
Each day passes but
a wonder on the mirror remains
The message to meet by the river,
now on the nightstand remains
As the year passes,
a calendar remains
The boat has reached the shore,
and the ocean remains
As we take our leave,
someone by the door remains
Transitions .. huge huge transitions.
This year is transitioning
I think we will transition from wall to wall Covid in this coming year (What I enjoy about this thought, is that there will be a batch of alarmist websites that will have to find another reason for their existence!)
Russia is transitioning to another profile
China is right there with them, saying that it is up to China and Russia now to keep peace in the world
Iran is holding firm with their demand to drop all sanctions. The sanctions regime is being ‘defanged’ ever so slowly and then it will be fast
Multi polarity will be a transition for years and years to come
We’ve had a few folks here losing family and mothers – that is a major life transition
We see the transition of the US&Cronies to a normal place in the world. Not yet in the big banks, but certainly in the actions of the economy. Wait for a massive announcement during the coming Olympics in Beijing – I’ve been waiting for it, and Pepe Escobar said just recently
After the last two years, we have to transition into deep and joyful living again. Build dreams, write down objectives, gain/re-gain some happiness despite the transitions. I’m not talking silly New Year’s resolutions but rather a healing from almost trauma of the last few years.
Anyway, these are the thoughts – let me combine this with very good wishes for you all into the transitions. Still hold on to your hats .. change is either revolutionary or evolutionary. These transitions are both!
Thanks a lot Amarynth !
Blessings to you, the Saker and all the contributors, authors, and readers of this site. Peace and Prosperity to all.
Amarynth, I like your wisdom of dealing with the political weathers. Beyond the current immense transitions, transition is the normal, where it lacks there is death. But the ‘normals’ hate transitions. The position, the house, the love – may they stay as they were…
As the second half of life belongs to the invisible realm of maturing thoughts and feeling, one can watch those ‘normals’ beyond their 50th, exposing their ‘second youth’ to the scene outside, without realizing their ridiculosity, same with the US ‘elite’ and their media, daily exerting a collective example of such immaturity.
I think astrological observation of our physical cosmic system is a powerfull mean to mature psychicly, as synchron with the physic transitions in our cosmic family are the due psychic ones. Realizing or even foreboding the symbolic meaning of the constellation’s slow or swift transitions, gives the individual’s heart a unique sovereignty.
Not knowing the symbolic ‘weather’ consciously, is a kind of psychic wound, as the consciousness, lacking the meaning of the time, follows erroneously ideological phantasmas.
By active Astrology it will become experience, our world is consisting of the union of antagonisms, that the ‘agon’ = the fight, between contrasts is only one possible opinion, that of the soul- and spiritless ‘human’ bully, while wisdom emerges by experiencing the bliss of united differences. Isn’t their state called love, or respect ?
The US-Russian contrast astrologicly is to view like all similar contrasts in history, as that of two scales. Saturn, the lord of the polar Capricorn owns one scale, Uranus, the lord of Aquarius’ cosmic liberty owns the neighborly one.
Currently Saturn rules: Sun, Venus, Mercury, Pluto = 6 of 12 signs. Uranus owns only one, but it is Saturn, moving in Aquarius.
Now the rule is, a ruler can only rule, in accordance with his host. So is Saturn blocked?
The answer is, the cosmic order favours completeness. Thereto pertains the fitting measure of sacrifices, of waivers, the essence of Scorpio, if missing, one of them, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius are prone to become ‘apoplectic’ – bad chance on the scale.
So for Saturn in Aquarius, if ok with sacrifices (own ones, not that of one’s underlings), Aquarius favours the origin of coming presence. If not ok. Uranus, represented by the US would poke in Saturn’s wound.
While sophisticated and non-sophisticated weapons always are a waiver of social income, there is no nation more OK with smart sacrifices, than polar Russia, hence there is no need for sorrow, current ‘healthy’ Saturn in Aquarius is friend of Uranus, lord of heaven and space …
And the spectrum of Russian sacrifices is, as we know, immense, with her president leading the way.
So let’s face the New Year in good mood!
And watch the constellation – it is outstanding:
Huge transitions indeed, and it appears the revolutionary kind! I love your optimism, and pray for it, but tea leaves are not encouraging. Why are certain Zone A now in hard lockdown, even Holland just forced vaxxed US travellers suddenly into 10 day quarantine at Schiphol? Have the madmen gone fubar and released the Omega variant? Outlaw Historian just posted on MoA he expects “pandemonium” by Jan 6. Why? In same post he and others highlighted the escalation by Putin in the just concluded Russian-initiated phone summit threatening a complete rupture with West (is that Ukie false flag about to go live)? This is very dangerous upcoming week, maybe the War faction senses the Sane Faction is caving to Russian ultimatum or Things Fall Apart too fast and it is use it or lose it time? And will go live, sacrificing Ukies and do something foolish in USA at same time? It may be coming to a head imminently, and a miracle to see the Olympics held at all. In fact if it is held, it would be a major signpost and oasis of hope
even many of the previously Warp Speed supporting Trumpettes now realise the true nature of the, fraudulent test based, psyop:
although, as usual, the true believers will never ever lose the faith:
Trump is a far bigger Psy-Op than Q.. Hope dies last, he is still being used against good-hearted but deluded conservatives. Trump is the personification of that Lenin quote, “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” And among his roles is to be the Last President of the American Republic.
The Trump phenomenon is a spiritual dark locus in our bizarre End Times. His coming has been praised and foretold in over 100 US pop, rock and rap songs and movies since the 1980s.. Accessible and looked up to by many worldwide for his wealth, crassness, relatability, eating McDonalds on his airplanes and grabbing the P***y when he wanted. He swims with both currents – a lifelong Democrat and friends of the Clintons before suddenly “changing.” A Teflon survivor of bankruptcies, impeachments, scandals and notoriety. A global Icon.
Some crazy Italians recently worshiped Trump’s ascendant god-hood! Romans have a millennial pagan tradition of deification and are willing to call a spade a spade.
For example do you know what MAGA really stands for?
Trump or should I say Trumpet / ” the little horn” of the AntiChrist, is celebrated among Dark circles as a key fore-runner, or a little AntiChrist.
Checkout YT videos of his 66th floor NYC penthouse, decked out in a golden homage to Apollo ([Apollyon], gatekeeper of the bottomless pit, which was opened on 9.11.2001, according to some occultists) and which was prominently featured as the setting of that Al Pacino masterpiece, The Devil’s Advocate.
Trump plays the buffoon but has had a purpose from before his birth. He comes from a very illuminated bloodline. Did you know he was raised in a Queens NY building, a walking distance from Flushing Meadows-Corona Park?! His father had his own booth at the 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair (exhibits included The World of Tomorrow, and major symbols were the Trylon and Perisphere). There is direct link in Back to the Future series between Trump and the World of Tomorrow exhibit and lockdowns.. Trylon is a venerated brand of hypodermic syringe, originally glass, still available in the medical supply stores today! And continuing with Trump’s NYC roots, look at the new One World Trade Center which replaced the two Twin Towers – turn its photo on its side. Does it remind you of a Trylon hypodermic? I merely skim the surface, from memory.
Indeed, I think you hit the nail on the head, and it could be said that Trump’s life mission, of which he is so proud and never fails to boast on TV, is to kick-start Operation Warp Speed and the products it delivered to mankind. What does Warp Speed mean? Among its myriad meanings, it is a type of Portal, a means to possession by satans. Does something in the mandated product facilitate possession? Have they discovered the key to overcome Free Will and turn men into mule-like zombies? What is the occult significance of its potent logo? In it are Swastikas, Thousand Points of Light, a Cube, a Tesseract, a Q (!), Theosophy’s derived Antahkarana, 3 Hewbrew Vavs (666s) and other Symbols.
How was Warp Speed used in the original Star Trek? Why did Biden [Bi-Don] have to succeed the original Don in their twisted Eschatology? Bi-Don ~ 2 pricks from the viper (remind you of 2 doses for “immunity”?); as Brother Casey interpreted from the Dune series and others, the first hypodermics were the hollow fangs of snakes, which inject the poison. And the original Don did wax poetic, state his credentials, as well as mock us in advance when he said, “You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in..”
Among his key policy “achievements” were the Abrahamic Accords, interpreted by many as the foretold deception of the AntiChrist, “…for when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” So when they emphasize Peace, expect the War. And is today the environs of Occupied Palestine safer or a lit powder keg?
Israel recently unveiled Trump Heights at the Golan, at the location where the Fallen Watchers perched on Mount Hermon in biblical times. These Fallen made their terrible oath there, foretelling a matching calamity to befall men again? Mount Hermon is a potent icon for the satanists, among their “proud heritage,” and why they fight to keep the Golan from Syria. This mountain and its halo of “Stars” are commemorated in Zionist Hollywood in the Paramount Pictures logo of which you have likely seen in hundreds of movies.. From Mount Hermon spring the main headwaters of the Jordan River, which go on to drain into the Dead Sea. About 3 years ago I stood at this river at Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan, Jordan – where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Trump is part of this End Game riddle.
As the Bard said, each player has his part on the stage. “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.” In short, there appears little wholesome about Project Trump, a narrative constructed starting at least over a century ago by occultist Ingersoll Lockwood, who celebrated Portals of Possession to come, via his Don and child Baron.
Lastly look at this interesting mock up of the Last Supper at the Court of the AntiChrist, recently celebrated by occultists.. Trump kneels in a prominent role, red MAGA armband displayed like the antecedent red SS armbands, one of the last pieces being put in place on the global chessboard.
But of course all this is coincidence and mere conjecture and foolish conspiracy theory. Let’s focus on Science and fact-check things ok.
So with all the above filth and travesty in prominent role of global affairs, is it a surprise we are poised like the people of Noah at the cusp of a new Great Flood? The difference being this time the slate will be wiped clean by hypersonic and missile Fire.
I mostly agree.
However, the rates/methods at which the Government of all “nations” are, as you hint, taking away the Free Will of their citizen’s is remarkably similar – to the extent that it is easy to imagine that there is, in reality, already a single psychopathic Global Governance managing this Great Flood .
In these circumstances there is no further need to wipe the slate clean using hypersonic and missile Fire.
I have no way of knowing if there is a “𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘱𝘴𝘺𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘤 𝘎𝘭𝘰𝘣𝘢𝘭 𝘎𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦,” but doubt this is currently true or achieved, even though it has been an open goal for countless generations.
And even if it can be argued there was a short phase of quasi-achievement in the 1990s, giving rise to premature ecstatic drivel such as Fukuyama’s “𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘌𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘏𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘓𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘔𝘢𝘯 (1992),” there is now a clear break between thieves.. Folks forget the evil camp is as disunited and fractious as the other camps.
I find it more plausible that the core patriotic faction in Russia allowed dissolution of USSR, biding their time while allowing Atlantic Integrationists to expose themselves (that they were not any more refined or wholesome than 1917-20s Bolsheviks), AZ Empire to lower its guard, and built a lean, mean focused machine while being rid of the USSR bloated trappings. This core is now openly declaring itself..
Regarding “𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴/𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘥𝘴 𝘢𝘵 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘎𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘢𝘭𝘭 “𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴” 𝘢𝘳𝘦, 𝘢𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘵, 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘍𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘞𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘤𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘯’𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘪𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘢𝘳,” I made distinction between Zones before, so I think there is a different calculus with respect to Zone B.. Even in its dying spasms, massive Empires have such momentum they continue to influence even powerful rivals and enemies. It is thus easy to get Zone B to march in lockstep with Zone A (the pandemic narrative) not because of collusion, but due to control of propaganda, waging biowarfare, and responsible Zone B governments’ response by desperately reacting to prevent the panicking, annihilation and resultant “color couping” of their populations by certified psychopaths. Clearly there are two camps now, even if there were prior understandings.
Regarding the desired taking away of Free Will itself, I doubt this is achievable. I think they will fail, as they will in melding clay to iron (Transhumanism).. Consider the Gift of Free Will bestowed by our Lord. Taking it away is in essence a war on God, to alter one of the key purposes for which He created us – to test our use of this Gift. What can you say to the flyspeck who labors against the very cosmos? Perhaps it will be permitted to the gullible faction who submits to demonic narratives and thus be punished by hands of their new “gods.” But even then transiently, and then the slate will be wiped clean to test a new batch of folks with modicum of sense.
Tolkien talked about this indirectly as the Doom or bane of mankind, their mortality, which was in reality a gift, envied by the immortals. You can see the parallels in fool Billionaires striving to attain immortality through Transhumanism and escape from Earth for their crimes. All this tilting against Divine Will and nature is self-defeating idiocy, but the elites have seduced themselves. Perhaps they know deep inside in their black heart of hearts, and are merely going through the motions.
Lastly, wiping the slate clean, this naturally flows if evil becomes enshrined in a “single psychopathic Global Governance.” There is Divine Law and precedent. You do good, you receive good. If malignancy seeks to establish “a thousand-year Reich” and a majority submit to this – whether they were cognizant and witting or not – well contingencies and reboots were invariably triggered in the past and we can safely presume is about to be triggered unless there is a major deviation in our current group behavior. And as our Lord is Just and consistent in application of justice* then it follows punishment is due.
* I agree with the Saker’s recent eloquent statement about the power of Prayer and Repentance; but it requires a critical mass and sincerity and obviously a deviation from current behavior:
“𝘚𝘰 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘐 𝘢𝘮 𝘭𝘦𝘧𝘵 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘎𝘰𝘥’𝘴 𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘤𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢 𝘮𝘪𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘭𝘦. 𝘔𝘪𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝘥𝘰 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯. 𝘐 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘴𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦. 𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘰𝘧𝘵𝘦𝘯.

you wonder if the Dutch hard lockdown could be due to the Zone A psycho release of “Omega”. Do you imagine these simultaneous actions are meant to cause both real ill health but also to appear as benevolent in shielding their population from that harm?
At some level, that reminds me of this:
“You can never control people with the truth, because the truth has an existence outside yourself that cannot be altered or directed. It may be the truth itself that controls people, not you.
You can never force people to obey rules that make sense, because they may be obeying reason, not your force.
True power lies in making people afraid of something that does not exist, and making them abandon reason in the name of protecting themselves from the invented threat.
To guarantee you have control, you must make people see things that are not there, make people live in a reality you build around them, and force people to follow arbitrary, contradictory rules that change day by day.
To truly test their loyalty, their hypnosis, you could even tell them there’s nothing to be afraid of anymore, but they need to follow the rules anyway.”
Maybe that’s the point. Maybe the story isn’t supposed to be believable. Maybe the rules aren’t meant to make sense, they are meant to be obeyed.
Maybe the more contradictory & illogical the regulations become, the more your compliance is valued.
Maybe if you can force a person to abandon their judgment in favour of your own, you have total control over their reality.
We started with an Orwell quote, so let’s end with one too:
Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
Isn’t that what we’re seeing now? What we’ve been seeing since the beginning?
People being mind broken into being afraid of something they told isn’t frightening, following rules they are told are not necessary, taking “medicine” they are told does not work.
Maybe forcing people to believe your lies, even as you admit you are lying, is the purest expression of power.”
If not mistaken, you also think it unlikely that Free Will can be removed by “medical” intervention and that Zone B are protecting their population from a real health concern (via governmental decree):
“S.-PETERSBURG, 2 January – RIA Novosti. QR codes for visiting catering establishments and retail outlets (except for pharmacies, grocery stores, stores selling essential goods) were introduced in St. Petersburg on Sunday.
The relevant amendments to the city government’s decree “On measures to counter the spread of a new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in St. Petersburg” were signed earlier by Governor Alexander Beglov.
“The condition allowing only visitors who have completed vaccinations, who have had a disease or who have a medical treatment, will enter into force on January 2. For retail outlets (except for pharmacies, gas stations, grocery stores, stores selling essential goods, and stores that do not have a hall) service), the beginning of a similar condition is also postponed to January 2, “- said the press service of the governor’s administration.”
Is it then fair to say that you consider the (de facto i.e. vaxx or starve) abrogation of Free Will (as it applies to the decision of the Citizen’s of St Peterberg) to be an instance of this altruistic motive?
Like you, I really do hope the new batch of folks are provided a modicum of sense, next time.
The maniacs have their go-to rituals. Like a serial killer has his modus operandi. Omega is at the end of the Greek alphabet. It may be the final thing to be released, the most potent and Hail Mary pathogen. And their calling card is mockery – esp of Most High, hence the Alpha and the Omega.. and they have a weird fixation on symmetry – as above so below, so as it began with Alpha, it will be concluded with the Omega.
I do not think these are simultaneous actions at all. On the Empire side, it is the Parasite wanting to cause ill health and releasing pathogens. No evidence whatsoever of benevolence in their camp. It is Russia/China/Iran etc.. which appear to be the ones trying to shield their populations.
I strongly disagree with the quotes in italics, especially “𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘦 𝘱𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘦𝘹𝘪𝘴𝘵, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘢𝘣𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘯 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘯𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵.” These artificial constructs of reality which imprison people have been described by philosophers for millennia.. In our current era, perhaps John Rappoport has best described the modern make-up of Plato’s cave and these alluring alternate realities of which most are victim. Nothing new under the sun.
And this applies to the deluded and insouciant who usually lack agency. If you love the Truth and have a measure of intelligence and perspective, and listen to your conscious, and unplug from the Liars, these tactics usually do not work against you.. I notice those that succumb to such fake Power ALLOW themselves to be deluded – they are willing participants of the age-old ritual. Ultimately it distils to what do you Fear? (A) a truly omnipotent Divine Will and Hell/Heaven and living accordingly on Earth, or if you do not fear this, (B) you will be made to fear the satans and become the play thing of the devils, who will make you fear poverty, ill-health, aging, loss of beauty, death, and 1001 other things. And in the second scenario, your fearfulness will be used against you as we see now. So is it not better to submit to the Being in control of all the petty weak satans and their fake fears (our worldly trials and tribulations) as well as giving you a satisfying, fearless, and peaceful inner life, even in the midst of a tsunami of pain?
I do not know what is going on in Russia. And I do think biowarfare has been deployed. So the rationale behind QR may be different; it is a most effective way to track people, given the intermingling of 5th columns and foreign agents in the modern metropolis. Again, the same tool may have a different purpose in hands of a criminal vs a honest man. We will see.
The abrogation of Free Will I envision is something different than being merely forced under compulsion, as is happening now. Sorry, I lack the words to better describe it. Like the permanent mainstreaming of Stockholm Syndrome. Or imagine a generation whose dna is changed to only desire eating human flesh, from the teething age, or to consider Church of Satan as the only valid outlet for worship, etc.. and they could not change, for unending generations. Does this make sense? A construct which builds an invisible prison for the mind, which cannot be circumvented, or instills urges which cannot be overcome by the individual. Some conservatives talk about “the turning off of the God gene,” but I think it is preposterous. It is more fear porn.

The visible light spectrum is only a minor part of the full spectrum. In the same way, consensus-thought is only a tiny arc in the full arc of invented thought (which is infinite).
On May 14, 2266, the New England Journal of Medicine and Psychology published a paper titled:
WHAT IS ‘A NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCE?’
A quote: “Brain research discovers common patterns of activity across a whole population. These patterns would be called ‘normal’. Exceptions would be classified as various categories of ‘disordered thought’. It’s assumed that only ‘harmonious and symmetrical’ brain patterns are positive and beneficial.”
A reader commented: “This assumption is grossly false. It’s a stunted version of aesthetics. Creative force always breaks out of these little geometries. So does every new idea. Increasingly, Earth culture is unable to understand this.”
—That reader receives a government notice and is summoned to a hearing. He’s interviewed by a virtual AI employee of the federal Department of Stat Research.
HOLOGRAPHIC i-FIGURE: “Are you all right during this epidemic lockdown? I see you live alone.”
“Yes, I’m fine.”
“We want you to enjoy yourself. Are you watching learning programs?”
“I don’t like them.”
“Well, we have a report on you. It indicates an output difficult to measure or interpret. What can you tell us about this?
“I don’t know. I’m composing a symphony.”
“A symphony? What is that?”
“It’s a piece of music written for a large orchestra.”
“I find no extant orchestras in the country.”
“That’s true. Nevertheless, I’m composing.”
“For that day when an orchestra may come into being again.”
“Your thought-impulses entered ranges we were not able to summarize.”
“I suppose that means your instruments are limited.”
“Your last statement might be viewed as incendiary. It suggests we are imposing a restriction. As you well know, the science is settled on this point. We measure and interpret thought that contributes to an overall positive outcome, for the population at large.”
“I’m aware of that, yes. But the science rests on certain assumptions. I would call it greatest good as a lowest common denominator.”
“What do you mean?”
“You decide a certain mindset contributes to the consensus reality you favor. You legislate a range of thought that will produce the consensus.”
“That’s a gross oversimplification.”
“It doesn’t describe the algorithms you employ, but all in all I believe my summary is correct. You’re reality makers. You monitor thought-emissions, and when you find a departure from ‘combined averages,’ as you call them, you issue a citation.”
“What is this symphony you’re composing?”
“It’s impossible to explain. It’s music.”
“It has a specific message?”
“No. If it did, I would write out the message and leave it at that.”
“Why have we not heard of you before?”
“I was doing illustrations for the Happiness Holos.”
“We know. What happened?”
“I became bored. A machine could make those pictures. So I decided to compose music.”
“The Happiness Holos are an essential social program.”
“Perhaps. They encourage people to stay on the positive side of a construct called Positive&Negative, which as you know is a State-sponsored theme. But what is superficially indicated by those two opposing sets is, in fact, fuel for the fire.”
“Fuel for what fire?”
“The artist can use and transform any material.”
“Where did you hear such a thing?”
“Nowhere. I’ve experienced it many times.”
“Your views are highly eccentric. I will have to consult your childhood history to understand their roots.”
“I’m afraid that won’t do you any good.”
“Because your version, the US Department of Psychology version of cause and effect, is propaganda for the masses.”
“This is your idea of a joke?”
“Not at all.”
“When you compose this…symphony, how do you think?”
“It’s not thinking in the way you use the term.”
“No? Then what do you do?”
“I invent sound.”
“Large masses of sound.”
“Absurd. According to what underlying pattern?”
“None. Check the Library of Structures. I doubt you’ll find my activity in the catalogs.”
“Known structures and patterns are contained in the files.”
“I don’t invent through pattern.”
“No? How then?”
“And this term refers to?”
“Something done spontaneously.”
“And you exceed prescribed ranges of thought in the process.”
“Perhaps. I would hope so. I don’t keep track.”
“You’re being flippant.”
“I assumed you’d eventually cite me. I’m just composing music during the lockdown.”
“There is no citation yet. You’re an anomaly. We investigate. We consider.”
“I’m afraid your and my idea of ‘consider’ are quite different.”
“Let me ask you this. When you are composing, do you ever believe you enter into a realm or area that could be called ‘non-material’? We’ve heard such claims before.”
“Not if you’re referring to some fairyland. But all thought is basically non-material. The brain registers it after the fact. Thought, the real thing, doesn’t take place in the brain.”
“You’re deluded. And disordered.”
“If I could simply confess to that and be on my way, I’d be a happy man.”
“You live in a society. To keep the peace and maintain the Positive, science has discovered that thought should occur within certain parameters.”
“If you insist.”
“We want to study you. It’s a great honor to be called. You could help extend the boundaries of research…we register variation from the norm in your present thinking.”
“What present thinking?”
“What you’re thinking right now.”
“That was quick.”
“The readouts are instantaneous…what are you doing?”
“I’m starting the fourth movement.”
“Wait. What you’re doing is disruptive.”
“You assume that based on how you set your normal frequencies.”
“YOU’RE BEING DISRUPTIVE. STOP YOUR THOUGHTS.”
All along the major esplanade, and in the lake area, and in the industrial parks and residential high rises, virtual structures shattered like glass.
The holographic i-figure went dark.
A thousand holographic government buildings froze and vanished.
The composer said to no one, “I’m just composing. Well, apparently not just.”
—Back in his room at the edge of the city, he said, “I suppose that’s what they mean by a negative consequence.”
He sat down at his computer and turned it on
He plugged in a small module. The screen went red. Black letters formed: DISEQUILIBRIUM. He pressed the send key.
The encrypted score of the first three movements of his symphony set out on a rapidly changing zig-zag journey to a series of caverns below cities in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, America.
A program consisting of the synthesized instruments of a full orchestra read the score and began to broadcast the music to small groups of people sitting in the caverns…
That is , an interesting read, the interviewing virtual AI employee of the federal Department of Stat Research of the random reader, pause for thought; he s not scary, but the situational logistics, these are !
Merry Star new Year to you, and to one and all here !
Often we’ve heard of the Russian 5th column. But it remains a concept – without real flesh, like what does it look like?. The young fellow is called Mikhail Svetov and he is charming, smart, well-spoken and a snake (apologies to snakes).
The Truth about Putin’s Russia
Sakers blog was there! In real time; reporting “as it happened”.
Details of US spy plane flight over eastern Ukraine revealed
A US Air Force E-8C Joint STARS battle management plane has made its maiden flight over eastern Ukraine for a reconnaissance mission to gather information about the situation on the ground, an American official has revealed.
Wolfkiel did not reveal the aircraft’s exact route or its scouting information…..
But during the “Clouds on theHorizon” thread I was monitoring 24flightradar…..
Along with a few thousand others globally we were watching this bear poking exercise.
So from lurking in threads at sites that I will not link to, I have this:
>1 The E-8C collected location data on locations of Russian equipment, then the RC-135 mopped up and collected Signals Intelligence to determine radio frequencies and radar wavelength earlier today.
>2 The US sent two of their best battlefield spy planes over Ukraine today to collect data and give it to Ukraine, so it’s a bit more serious.
Now in the past week I’ve been lurking in places that I won’t mention, and certainly won’t link to. I am trying to get a read on how widely, or not, there is comprehension about what is happening with the Russian v NATO/ US “negotiations”.
(There are sites where “real” news breaks first…and certain tof these “happenings” threads usually have a high percentage of ex US military servicepersons, some seemingly in their 80s (based on the administrations they cite as their years of service), and some are “youngsters” all the way up to current US imbroglios. These commentators can have served as a cog in any part of the US behemoth war machine, and they argue vigorously about what, to me, are arcane points.
So. While that US plane was “doing laps and loops” as close to the Sevastopol coast as it dared, I was lurking a thread which had ex US military guys listening in via various radio systems.
[Mr P alludes to his hobby of listening in to his hometown frequencies…]
The guys on the thread I was lurking were quite concerned about the plane…. As it seemed to be in the area to support some other, ground based activity….perhaps an incursion into the “[ATO zone]”??? I don’t know, this ^is 100% speculation on my part.
But I wonder3d why they were so concerned, and they were listening in for the “every 30 minute” transmission that confirmed they were “still live”, or “alive”…. What was the US doing that it needed to report via a radio every 30minutes ?
Unfortunately the thread got purged by moderators before my many unasked questions were answered….
Here’s what I harvested:
Discussion on the use of this plane.
E-8C JSTARS likely just monitoring russian troop movements near border to ukraine. either a) watching a retreat from the border or
b) watching for exact locations of russian troops amassing on border
Early in thread:
ALL STATIONS ALL STATIONS;
There’s chatter. Then one post a screenshot of a radio frequency, saying:
>This is one of the strangest signals I’ve ever seen or heard.
>> QSL. What freq? 73
>This is STANDOFF…Again
>>On the half hour again. This is Deadman Transmission. Until Clear is transmitted, missing a half hour transmit means they are Dead. We live ops nao.
>>> On the half hour again.…Ngl…my pulse is racing a bit. (*Ngl = not gonna lie)*
>Same Encrypt being sent every 30 min. Not good.
>> 4 …messages in the past hour. Maybe something is up.
> Maybe it’s some sort of drill. Obviously tensions are high, but I doubt that anything will happen until the January talks stall.
>They’re transmitting ALREADY again, but so low under the signal I can’t make it out..
>> It’s clear on 4724 from the Twente sdr.
> Well, they are still operational
>> All Stations All Station. This is STANDOFF…~~~~~Right on the half hour…Still Operational. Listen to 4724. It’s clearer.
>> Standoff on the half hour. What situations would deserve that treatment?
>>> In the middle of an operational situation. At minimum, it’s a live drill to simulate for the actual habbening.
>US to Ukrainian on thread: Do you like the javelin launchers the americans sent you lately?
>>Norwegian replies: Javelin missiles will not do shit against the massive artillery bombardments the russians will use to lead their armored assaults.
>>>US: thinks Russia would fight with tanks …doesn’t understand Russian modern warfare via Kinzhal, Circon and Poseidon missiles, Solntsepek and Tor rocket system, latest SU jets, REB anti electronics suprression system.
>>>>4th US dude muses: Kinzhal, Circon and Poseidon missiles, Solntsepek and Tor rocket system..Seems pretty advanced honestly. Doesn’t seem like america has anything equivalent, or any real counters.
>UK says: Mutt, what will happen can be best described as “hand of death” – i.e. simultaneous destruction of all Ukrainian army infra (barracks / ammo depots/ jets / hangars/ tanks/ command points) with all stationed personnel. That would happen within an hour/ max two.
Then militia from Donbass + private millitary from Vagner would march towards Odessa and Kharkov not facing any resistance with exception of local partisans, who would be hanged on the trees as warning to rest.
Those guys wouldn’t capture anything else. Odessa and Kharkov – that’s it.
To cut Ukraine from Black Sea + connect with Transdnistria.
>US guy. F that. Just nukes. Russia gonna F around and find out.
>US replies to “nukem”: Russian military has the full capability to vaporize any “experienced infantry” elements in Ukraine. Using reservists as human shields to make Russha look bad because local oligarchs in bed with EU globalist euromaidan crap don’t give a shit about using locals is a bad move. The stakes are too high and Russians will not back off for at most 200 thousand more casualties in a nation of 40 million.
This is all happening not because of people or even nations, but due to the policies of jumping ship that no one there ever had a say in. If Russia is choked off from Ukraine and Sevastopol, they can legitimately starve to death in the current scenario of planned artificial scarcity.
Putin Biden call.
23:35 Moscow time. Putin is at his Kremlin office
15:35. Biden is at home in Wilmington.
So why is he at home during office hours?
Apparently the Kremlin is ‘pleased’ with the call according to RT.
I’m guessing a large helping of US lip service was on offer.
Just wondering if anyone out there is reading RFK Jr.’s book “The Real Anthony Fauci”
I’m going to get a local bookstore to order for me.
[they need the business (we’ve already lost too many local bookstores)
And I hate Amazon.
Alas, bookstores like Barnes and Noble decided not to carry it. So go right to Skyhorse Publishing or order it via Alibris. thank you internet.
On my desk, right after bio of Zukov. Just finished “History will not absolve us” (Schotz). At a glance, it’s very dense book, one might want to take notes and craft a review as one reads.
BTW HWNAU is a very good source. In particular, Fidel’s analysis of who and why the Kennedy affair in Dallas. Very impressive.
Dark Side of Camelot, especially the latter portion, informs the matter of the “Cuban Missile affair” in a way that may illuminate the zuswang that the biden finds itself in. A sea of corruption and intrigues…
And let us recall what happened to both leaders after they made a deal.
@Anoxia we had at midnight a thrilling audio entertainment of live firing. I heard no fullauto, which is disappointing. The cop radio paid no attention. Midnight audio is ordinary, but usually light. Last night was quite enthusiastic, it seemed. The dogs snuggled down deeper and sighed. Nothing hit the roof. Clear skies and frost. But the garlic is coming up nicely. Astonishingly, things are normal, more or less. Plenty of petty crime among the poor. Most of this results in “severe admonishment”, ie no arrest. Well, there’s the budget and what good would an arrest do?
Negotiations with the United States on security guarantees will take place on January 10, consultations with NATO on January 12, and a meeting of representatives of Moscow and the OSCE is scheduled for January 13 .

WASHINGTON, Dec 31 – RIA Novosti. The conversation between US and Russian Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin has ended, Dmitry Peskov told RIA Novosti .
According to the White House, negotiations began at 3.35 pm Washington time (23.35 Moscow time) on Thursday and ended at 16.25 (00.25 Moscow time Friday), lasting 50 minutes.
As Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov noted earlier , the negotiations were initiated by the Russian side. According to him, this is an ordinary telephone conversation without a public part.

The heads of the two states planned to discuss the issues that were raised during the last videoconference, as well as touch on the topic of security guarantees. The purpose of the conversation is “to reach a compromise, taking into account the principled positions of each other,” the Kremlin explained.
US President Joe Biden – RIA Novosti, 1920, 12/30/2021
WP: Biden in talks with Putin to announce readiness to impose sanctions
On December 7, the presidents of the two countries talked about two hours by video link. Biden expressed concern over tensions between Russia and Ukraine . Putin, in turn, drew attention to the fact that Kiev is not fulfilling the Minsk agreements, and outlined the red lines – NATO ‘s eastward expansion and the deployment of offensive weapons on Ukrainian territory and in countries adjacent to Russia.
Ten days later, Moscow published draft agreements with the United States and agreements with NATO member states, which include, inter alia, provisions on mutual security guarantees in Europe , non-deployment of intermediate and shorter-range missiles in each other’s reach and refusal to further expand the North Atlantic alliance, including at the expense of the former republics of the USSR .
Negotiations with the United States on security guarantees will take place on January 10, consultations with NATO on January 12, and a meeting of representatives of Moscow and the OSCE is scheduled for January 13 .
This is a new one out of the western playbook.

Reporter likely to be charged for using “view source” feature on web browser
A St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter who viewed the source HTML of a Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education website is now likely to be prosecuted for computer tampering, says Missouri Governor Mike Parson.
All web browsers have a “view source” menu item that lets you see the HTML code of the web page it is displaying.
The reporter discovered that the source code of the website contained Social Security numbers of educators.
The reporter alerted the state about the social security numbers.
After the state removed the numbers from the web page, the Post-Dispatch reported the vulnerability.
Soon after, Governor Parson, “who has often tangled with news outlets over reports he doesn’t like, announced a criminal investigation into the reporter and the Post-Dispatch.”
Charged with what?
Knowing how to Right-Click?
You can’t charge the reporter for negligence on the part of the web dev.
Reporter: *notices that web page error exposes social security numbers and notifies the proper people that this mistake exists so they can fix it*
Reporter: *reports that this happened*
@GovParsonMO. *launches investigation into the REPORTER!*
So Biden has said Nato forces will be bolstered along with the Ukrainian army in the case of an escalation in Donbas.
Brace yourselves for war folks!
US said it would track the movement of Russian troops near Ukraine
i.e – inside Russia. While having a myriad military bases around Russia, US dares to accuse Russia in having its own army within its own borders.
On this auspicious Eve
I pray to God almighty that His Virgins day
Reveal to hearts that fall away
Their seven deadlies
How they did not love
Nor thank, nor share
But rather grasping caught their hair
In frozen trees
And hang there.
I pray He shows us gently
And our great Mother helps
By easing birth of conscience
So as not to kill the welps.
Lord of all we honor Thee
This starry morn upon our knees
May all the souls that sprung from thee
Be shown their faults and be set free
every day is
new year’s day, every moment,
a brand new day
each day my birthday
wherein death day’s are hidden
One New Years Day
Only in earth’s annual cycle
Heaven stoops to earth
a short span each life
for the eternal spirit is given
on God’s earth we share

Germany shutting down (see RT) nuclear power stations might seem to some like such massive machine can be shut down in the sense that a small machine can be shut down. Is not so. NPS require offsite power to shut down, and need such offsite power for a long time. Considering the possibilities of loss of offsite power due to fuel and electric supply problems, it’s not a very good plan, it’s risky. Since the action does not seem logical, it may be that there’s more to this story.
In another line, that of the “not an ultimatum” and written agreement, see “McCloy-Zorin Agreement”
It’s blunt and brief. I had forgotten the old deal.
>”September 20, 1961
Having conducted an extensive exchange of view on disarmament pursuant to their agreement announced in the General Assembly on 30 March 1961,
Noting with concern that the continuing arms race is a heavy burden for humanity and is fraught with dangers for the cause of world peace,
Reaffirming their adherence to all the provisions of the General Assembly Resolution 1378 (XIV) of 20 November 1959,
Affirming that to facilitate the attainment of general and complete disarmament in a peaceful world it is important that all states abide by existing international agreements, refrain from any actions which might aggravate international tensions, and that they seek settlement of all disputes by peaceful means, …”
And so forth.
Soundgarden; Fell On Black Days
Nail in my head, from my creator
You gave me life,
Now show me how to live….Chris Cornell
Chris was a tortured soul, yet so fluid with words…..just about everything he did with RATM and Tom Morello had a certain quasi spiritual/cerebral quality to it, if you are familiar with Audioslave. When Johnny Cash covers one of your songs, Rusty Cage, you know you are in esteemed company.
Cheers M, all the best for the New Year
I believe the suggestion to do ‘Rusty Cage’ came from producer Rick Rubin, who produced Cash’s final albums. In any case, Johnny’s versions do not compare with the original. There was that raw and compelling honesty coupled with unique and original musical genius that Chris possessed, something he shared with Cobain. Don’t know Cornell’s work with Audioslave, have yet to check it out. I never cared for ‘Rage…’ and that whole political stance, or people like Trent Reznor; from the first notes of their music I find myself yawning, exact opposite of Nirvana and Soundgarden, which although you may not like every song, is still musically compelling. It’s a fine line between self-pity/glorification and sourcing one’s pain for one’s material, just my opinion…
His quieter solo stuff like, “Seasons”, is brilliant, too…
Likewise, best for ’22, to you and yours, sean, D.
I am now 1hour into 2022, i wish you All a happy new year.
Article talks about Christianity in the USA, Europe and Russia.
What’s the situation in Latin America, particularly Mexico? Are they not ‘Western’ as well?
I am reminded of a story about a Brazilian computer manufacturer named Unitron. As the story goes, until 1992 it was illegal to import foreign computers in Brazil. Back in 1985 Unitron, which had been manufacturing Apple II clones, tried to forge a deal with Apple to manufacture clones of the Macintosh 512k, but the terms that Apple wanted were illegal. So when Unitron decided to go it alone, Apple found out and ordered the Brazilian government to get Unitron to cease and desist. By the time the Macintosh was allowed to be distributed in Brazil, the market had already been dominated by IBM PC clones (Apple was either discontinuing or had already discontinued the Apple II, and competitors like Commodore and Atari had exited or were exiting the market).
I’ve heard that at one point Eastern bloc nations like the USSR and East Germany had manufactured their own IBM PC clones (amarynth, were you perhaps thinking of those?) as well as clones of the Apple II and Sinclair’s ZX Spectrum.
Many of the readers complain that the Chinese social media is being a bit too sensitive.
Last April (I think), when news came out about Japan’s announcement to dump Fukushima plant-contaminated water into the ocean, I lodged a complaint about how the comments on one Russian article at Vzglyad were throwing around the term “narrow-eyed”.
With people noting that the notion of East Asian “slanted eyes” is hardly stereotypical, I think that what I should’ve asked was: What difference does it make whether a national people’s eyes are “round” or “slanted”? And with relations between Russia and China being as close as ever, would throwing “uzkoglazye” not alienate Chinese readers?
Chinese President Xi Jinping’s 2022 New Year address to the nation,very impressive:
January 1, 2022: I just wanted to check what it feels like to write it :-)
A game on this day .. I’ve said a number of times that the One World Government does not exist as people usually think of it (That includes Mr Global and similar).
Who do you think came up with that concept and when? And who said that it does not exist? I’ll give my answers in about 12 hours.
Nobody wants to touch eh … lol.
The one world government, even called the unipolar world, was birthed at Bretton Woods in 1944
It was DoA as the UK and Russia refused to agree to such a proposal.
Putin said at virtual Davos in 2021, it never existed and now it is consigned to the dustbin of history.
So, within those few facts stand a mountain of detail. Who dun’it – how did we get the hegemon and who signed up? It was supposed to be a ‘bank’ or system to rebuild after the 2ndWW (even roots to the 1stWW). The results are the World Bank and the IMF, currency taken off the gold standard and the warfare model.
Folks that confuse their own .govs inability to deal with a virus, and to use this as an ideal opportunity to grab unprecedented control over their citizens or subjects, and expose who in leaderships are complete psychopaths, and call that it is a ‘one world government’ are deceived. The concept was ceded into the common conversation as a boogeyman – because we cannot really define it – so people rage against an ‘unseen enemy’. That is the stuff of the religious – it is the ‘devil’ (and it may very well be). It leads to an inability to finger the perps on earth. It is very easy to blame the dead guy. We cannot define this, because it is dead.
Btw, Israel has just started shooting the Gaza strip again. Happy New Year.
This might serve to inform.
We have what we internally refer to as the ‘death squad’.
pharia, it does not serve to inform, but it serves to pump up the fear volume.
I see your link is by Peter Koenig. It is the end of me why he does not ply his trade that he is good at. He should be out in Afghanistan now, helping them to stand up strong agriculture. (But this is just my opinion – he does what he does and I have really nothing to say about that).
This death squad messaging is not even the opposite of ‘the climate is going to kill us all’ messaging. It is simply the very same. ‘They’, a great amorphous mass is coming to kill us. These death squad members are preaching the same message as the rabid climate changers, who say ‘the earth is coming to kill us.
It remains a message of death.
I don’t consider this information, but rather disinformation. If you don’t die today, then they will kill you. And if they don’t kill you, you’re gonna die anyways, because somebody is coming to kill you. All of this kind of material is death. Be afraid, be very afraid. This material exists basically in between the main five zoneA countries. It does not exist in the mainly Zone B countries, because it is BS. Is it a seeded meme? I don’t know because I did not follow it. But I did follow other seeded memes and it looks the same to me. What does look clear though, is that in certain areas of our world the populace is being managed by waves of fear-mongering. The death squad plays right into that. Some of them are being paid lots of money for this and some just play the divide and conquer game.
From a psychological perspective, all I see is a terrible fear of death, individually and trying to recruit a bunch with an equal fear of death, so that we amplify that fear message, and make that all the responsibility of an amorphous being and all shiver together in a created fear bubble.
Strange strange that Russia has made money available to support families and a brisk birth rate (even in Putin’s short new year’s message) and so has China, making it easy for families to afford more children. Many other countries have child ‘credits’ (using for lack of another word) to support their citizens and birth rates. Then, if you go and take a look at estimates made of long term birth rates long before the outbreak, you will see that for a long time already, I’m talking 30 years or so, the estimates are that birth rates (in the whiter west) are plummeting and by mid-century, we would need more people, just to keep the earth spinning.
And no, this has nothing to do with my thesis that the One World Government (unipolarity) so frequently referred to, is dead already. We can see that. And now it is clear where it was seated. For you, why don’t you choose life and life more abundantly? Take note of the death squad, but to buy into it, is anti-life and the philosophers and poets can talk about this better than I can.
I’m off to listen to a Joe Rogan. No, not my normal path, but he is interviewing someone that I respect. https://saker.community/topic/new-chatter-and-jabber-thread-starting-on-december-29/
P’ Koenig is just pointing out some phenomenon; as usual his analysis/synthesis is hhar4d to oppose.
Yes his talents are diverse, and a very busy guy.
I didn’t buy anything.
Didn’t need to.Eyes wide open. Seems pretty organized from here.
second salvo of 12 celebrates new year! https://www.reuters.com/business/aerospace-defense/russia-test-fires-new-hypersonic-tsirkon-missiles-frigate-submarine-2021-12-31/
Salvo fire is big deal. So is zircon missile. Each firing creates turbulence, so there’s an inescapable delay between launch. And there may be related latencies. But salvo (see smoothie on salvo) makes the gifts worth sending, so to say, as salvo overwhelms. Big difference.

Meantime? Reading Ilf and Petrov American Road Trip….which has pictures of the US, images which I remember from early childhood. That was another Country. In Great Desert the electric power came from stand-alone electric plants, and there was no fence along the open road. “Imported” was rare, and not very good. Food was in season, cheap, and local. Everybody had a job, there were no homeless, and nobody respectable would cross a picket line. There were hobos, and carnies, and wobblies. People sang. And accepted the idea that “rights” meant the right to be left alone, and to speak frankly. Well, except for the red-purges…, but mostly. One might hear the International now and again, at a party.
Chores call. Adios, Friends.
Brussels getting itself in a lickle pickle too
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year
All the very best for the time ahead

In response to a particularly nauseating and oh-so obviously staged “Sunday at home, family man, good all-round bloke” photo-op (so staged, twitter noted the wardrobe malfunction /shirt change)

It’s both funny and tragic when #dickhead is trending on Australian twitter and everyone knows it’s the PM. An absolute dickhead.
>Australia becomes the First Nation to Trend ‘ #dickhead ‘ as a hashtag for its leader
>I didn’t even need to check to know who the trending #dickhead is referring to.
>Saw #dickhead trending and I just knew it was Morrison.
>Just checked out why #dickhead was trending on Twitter. Pretty much who you expect it to be. Who gets Barramundi flown in from NT for their family new year BBQ? #auspol
>Don’t get me wrong, I loathe the man. But you can buy Humpty Doo barra at the fish markets any day of the week. (And you should. It’s sustainable, environmentally sound, healthy and yummy)
>One thing I will say about reading the #dickhead list of tweets, it is very therapeutic and is making both myself and my partner laugh our heads off.
I really love twitter, no wonder #ScottyThePathologicalLiar hates twitter, everyone on here has his measure.
Assange: A 4minute evisceration of the hypocrisy of the “ménage à trois of morally western “democratic” powers”, and their treatment of Assange.
My only quibble is Sweden’s early, and equally corrupt, participation in this was not also “acknowledged”.

Killing Assange while preaching press freedom
In his New Year’s message, Yonden Lhatoo demands Western governments free WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange before preaching press freedom to everyone else.
>. Is there no limit to the insufferable hypocrisy of these gangsters in glass houses
>. What they are doing to this brave man, who has done more for journalism than any of us, is a travesty, an atrocity, an abomination
> “Flush your own faeces first, before you lecture us on sanitation.”
Much hyperbole – but it is the NYT.
“Every day is January 6 now”.
Or *maybe* there’s more to the J6 Hyperbole after all…
WASHINGTON, D.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- Is the White House using the threat of “domestic terrorism” to institute gun control?
According to a White House document titled the “National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism,” gun control is a crucial component of Joe Biden’s plan.
The document says there is a rise in domestic violet extremists (DVE).
It highlights the biases against minority populations as one factor of the growth of DVEs.
It also states that those that believe that the Federal government is overreaching its power are at risk for becoming extremist, and the “perceived government overreach will almost certainly continue to drive DVE radicalization and mobilization to violence.”
While left-wing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter are not mentioned in the document, patriot groups are referred to as militia violent extremist (MVEs).
Last summer, left-wing riots caused havoc across the country, causing millions of dollars of damage to properties and cost several people their lives.
According to the document, the idea of fraud in the recent general election led to the January 6th breach at the Capitol.
It also claims that COVID-19 conspiracy theories also have led people down the path of extremism.
It lays down the idea that not trusting the government leads to violent domestic extremism.
It claims that this plan is something all Americans can get behind.
Many gun owners would disagree with President Biden’s statement.
The document breaks up the plan into four strategic pillars, and one pillar should be very concerning for gun owners.
“The Biden administration is using the threat of domestic terrorism to infringe on the right to bear arms.”
While those who break the law in furtherance of domestic terrorism must face investigation and prosecution for their crimes, it is equally important that the Federal Government engage in efforts to prevent individuals from being drawn into the grip of domestic terrorism in the first instance.
That means reducing both supply and demand of recruitment materials by limiting widespread availability online and bolstering resilience to it by those who nonetheless encounter it, among other measures.
It also means reducing access to assault weapons and high–capacity magazines and enforcing legal prohibitions that keep firearms out of dangerous hands.
Such prevention efforts must be pursued while safeguarding civil rights and civil liberties, including privacy protections, and while avoiding discrimination, bias, and stereotyping.
The document wants to restrict access to modern sporting rifles.
The AR15 is included in this category. The AR 15 is the most popular rifle in the country.

Sunday lunchtime in Australia, Twitter erupted, expressing exasperation at a blatant and gauche Morrison “at home with the family” photo op…(“home” being the multi multi multi million dollar government owned Kirribilli House, with it’s unequalled Sydney Harbour location)
Then, Sunday afternoon, as the heat and holiday boredom fermented across the nation, twitter went “Krakatoa”.
A Sept 2020 speech by former PM Tony Abbott had been rediscovered.
With no cricket, the Sydney to Hobart won, and nothing much else to divert the scrolling thumbs, Twitter, had become “sport”, and the twit wits were revelling in #dickhead trending for currently current PM Morrison.
As the day wore on, a tetchy debate arose, as many thought the original #dickhead was former PM Tony Abbott.
Hence the reposting of his September 2020 speech.
Abbott, had “run the numbers” on the dollars expended to prevent COVID-19 deaths in Australia.
Here’s a harvest from tweets and articles reporting on what Abbott said:
> Governments have approached the pandemic like trauma doctors instead of thinking like health economists, trained to pose uncomfortable questions about a level of deaths we might have to live with.”
>Governments need to consider “uncomfortable questions” about the number of deaths they are prepared to live with.
Speaking in London to the UK think tank Policy Exchange, Mr Abbott said the media had spread “virus hysteria” and people should be allowed to make their own decisions.
“From a health perspective, this pandemic has been serious.
From an economic perspective, it’s been disastrous,” he said.
>He questioned a strategy that he argued had been adopted by most countries, of preserving “almost every life at almost any cost.”
>”Even if mandatory shutdown [in Australia] really was all that avoided the initially predicted 150,000 deaths, that still works out at about $2 million per life saved.
“And if the average age of those who would have died is 80, even with roughly 10 years of expected life left, that’s still $200,000 per quality life year or substantially beyond what governments are usually prepared to pay for life-saving drugs.”
BTW: Abbott’s pension is $300,000 annually,(plus perks like commonwealth car driver and and and and….
Between January 2020 and January 2022 Australia has officially recorded 2,257 deaths attributed to COVID-19.
[^Please, Mod: I am not initiating a discussion/debate on the veracity of these^ reported numbers, or inciting any discussion on whether COVID is real, or not, or it’s origin…or… ]
And it’s finally cooled down enough to venture outside.
Thanks for your indulgence, mod(s)
The Joe Rogan and Robert Malone interview is a must listen and highly recommended in my view. But, it is being de-platformed something fierce everywhere. Rogan has the gift to ask the right questions and Malone knows where the bodies are buried and who connects to what. So, I’m downloading it, but it is 3 hours long.
It is real education but one needs to take the time and take the education: https://saker.community/topic/new-chatter-and-jabber-thread-starting-on-december-29/#post-6648
Pepe Escobar tweeted a short note: Follow the money.
I see that Pravda report speaks of subs all leaving port and some EW between NATO and Russia aircraft, and so forth.
Thinking about catastrophe, waiting to see how the not-a-ultimatum affair goes… and also about my grandfather, brought me to the Wee Mouse and Robert Burns. The old man used to write fake Robert Burns poems, and they were pretty good.>
To a Mouse
By Robert Burns
On Turning her up in her Nest, with the Plough, November 1785.
Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim’rous beastie,
O, what a panic’s in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi’ bickerin brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an’ chase thee
Wi’ murd’ring pattle!
I’m truly sorry Man’s dominion
Has broken Nature’s social union,
An’ justifies that ill opinion,
Which makes thee startle,
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve;
What then? poor beastie, thou maun live!
A daimen-icker in a thrave
’S a sma’ request:
I’ll get a blessin wi’ the lave,
An’ never miss ’t!
Thy wee-bit housie, too, in ruin!
It’s silly wa’s the win’s are strewin!
An’ naething, now, to big a new ane,
O’ foggage green!
An’ bleak December’s winds ensuin,
Baith snell an’ keen!
Thou saw the fields laid bare an’ waste,
An’ weary Winter comin fast,
An’ cozie here, beneath the blast,
Thou thought to dwell,
Till crash! the cruel coulter past
Out thro’ thy cell.
That wee-bit heap o’ leaves an’ stibble
Has cost thee monie a weary nibble!
Now thou’s turn’d out, for a’ thy trouble,
But house or hald,
To thole the Winter’s sleety dribble,
An’ cranreuch cauld!
But Mousie, thou art no thy-lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!
Still, thou art blest, compar’d wi’ me!
The present only toucheth thee:
But Och! I backward cast my e’e,
On prospects drear!
An’ forward tho’ I canna see,
I guess an’ fear!

Birdie – Birdie “Sitta europaea” “Nuthatch” in English, “Spettmeis” in Norwegian.
This is a no nonsense bird, afraid of nothing, and one of the 45 birds we have here in our garden and forest.
It’s minus 32 celsius here so I feed the nuthatches, chickadees (like a Titmouse) high test combo of bacon fat, mixed with peanut butter and bird seed. Just smoked a batch of bacon, I make chicharons from the skin, just bake them in the oven then I smash them and add it to the high test mix. Woodpeckers, Bluejays, Sap suckers, any bird that winters over here….they all love it……at -32 can you blame them.
Had the chance yesterday to watch the movie Hendrix, mostly interviews and archival footage, I enjoyed it, worth a look if you haven’t seen it. A few unheard or rare outtakes made it worthwhile, quite the talent he was.
Cheers, from the hinterland, M
you are speaking my heart
I’m so glad you’re filtering the crap
between the sessions
with the master
in such a warm alert
and astute intelligence, and
(in my last blog I wrote,
quote, original in German)
Esther Harding, “Women’s Mysteries”, Zürich 1949, p. 24.
“also the man … as his own contact with the inner or soul-world
is not ruled by male, but by female laws.”
A very fine political filter, is given by your contributions and definitely
a female one, glad to have you.
For the ‘inner half’ – I’m glad to be able to share intelligence with you.
Every woman knows it instinctly but not consciously.
Nothing shapes the future more, than the risen interest of man
to study man.
I’m one of those, walking completely with you between China and Saker’s
God bless you and those
