Moveable Feast Cafe 2023/02/03 … Open Thread
Alabama, The US in an authenticated memo is predicted to go to war with China in 2025. I shall post on US boards only to give them an understanding of what is going on behind the curtain. I am watching the US prepare at Top Gun Miramar and right now lean toward a US win. I am pro Russian, they can come out on top by cooling it if possible and watching the two behemoths deplete themselves.
By now you know Montana is home to one of the nation’s three nuclear missile silo fields at Malmstrom Air Force Base, thus I would venture China knows. And now the reason the US is dragging Mongolia into the coming apocalypse is clearer.
The United States is not talking proxy, In fact this looks really up close and personal.
“all AMC aligned personnel with weapons qualifications will fire a clip into a 7-meter target with the full understanding that unrepentant lethality matters most. Aim for the head.”
This comment is clearly aggressive, but also puzzling from a practical standpoint. Shooting for the head is not common guidance for regular small arms training. Shooting at the center of mass provides a much more reliable target to hit.
No particular individual weapon is specified here. Just yesterday, the public affairs office at the 60th Air Mobility Wing, which falls under AMC, published a news item calling attention to hundreds of personnel within the unit training to “re-familiarize themselves with the M4 carbine” as part of a change in readiness requirements in recent years.
The “end state” the AMC commander says he is looking for is “a fortified, ready, integrated, and agile Joint Force Maneuver Team ready to fight and win inside the first island chain.” The area inside the “first island chain” is defined as being between mainland East Asia and a boundary formed by various archipelagos to the east, as seen in the map below.
A map showing the general area covered by the term “First Island Chain,” as well as that of the “Second Island Chain” further out in the Pacific. DOD
The latter part of the memo outlines tasks to be completed in February, as well as ones projected to be completed in March and April.
“All commanders will acknowledge this order directly to me immediately” by the end of next month, according to the memo. “Then report all 2022 accomplishments preparing for the China fight, and forecast major efforts in 2023.”
I have given you enough to find the source. S
So add underground bunkers by 2025 or take your chances with a Chinese invasion, interesting choices I’ll keep them in mind
That is an authenticated memo as I said but it can also just be propaganda In this case no, the US is not using the memo solely for propaganda purposes.
Pictures of memo.
However when you read how the balloon freaked out the US etc. what the US is doing is making the most of the balloon incident to pad their agenda against China. The balloon makes good pr or propaganda for the states, the memo not near as much.
The US is more concerned about the stinking balloon. Write Happy Birthday on it and let it float. All countries spy. Shooting Chinese in the head is a lot more serious.
The following is one of the reasons I go along with the memo being the real thing.
Add the Philippines with Mongolia.
US, Philippines agree to larger American military presence
So four bases and an enlarged presence in five military camps?
Somewhere in all this is an opportunity for Russia.
MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The United States and the Philippines on Thursday announced plans to expand America’s military presence in the Southeast Asian nation, with access to four more bases as they seek to deter China’s increasingly aggressive actions toward Taiwan and in the disputed South China Sea.
In October, the U.S. sought access for a larger number of its forces and weapons in an additional five military camps, mostly in the north. That request would be high on the agenda in Austin’s meetings, according to Philippine officials.
Again, we are just as likely to have domestic disturbances before then as depopulation and future wars are hard to predict.
Either way, i’m prepared for all of them to arrive on schedule, or not, depending on who’s timer takes precedence.
When the coup went forward in 404, at that time it is in a film posited that the fellow with the mustache was resurrected…highly serendipitous, “coincidental” as, sometimes art and reality coincide…withal> enjoy

My previous in re the characteristics of “gain”, I assume, was in error, deleted. That’s a shame. I was careful to avoid violation of rules and order.
Best to All! P
I read up on the concept of an energy slave and understood the last four paragraphs and the part of the 1st. There seems to be a meta meaning to everything else which I don’t quite get. Could you expand on the last post?
P.S. Understood the ‘people are a virus ‘ideology. The first Matrix.
I read the post and diden’t quite understand any of it, you clearly have a superior mind, and perhaps there’s an underground tunnel saker info site that /m ignorant of, with all kinds of fascinating hi-tec communications systems that streamline and thwart any unwanted inuendo’s automatically, wow who knows,..what a community – who’d be without it!!
Superior mind? Not so, quite average. Pattern recognition, puzzle solving, interferometry, interpolation, extrapolation, accelerometers and integrating circuits. Oh..several cross-checking gyroscopes. Grey-mass power – everyone has it to use if they will only let it work. And listen. (Sorry, I had to troll..couldn’t help it).
Underground-tunnel Saker info sites within ‘the community’? I know of one so far: thesakerisglobal. as it was told to me. Pretty good, sometimes a different focus. An evolving focus. Freewheeling – which I like. Guest authors -the same as here. In some cases, the same (more known) writer.
At the risk of bad form and manners, below is my own interpretation of parts of Mr P’s post and how I arrived interpretation if that’ what you’re asking.. I could be very wrong.
Part of the 1st sentence reads as when there’s an empty bar on game night Friday or empty streets at the local bazaar…danger / preparing for trouble at home / big-storm preparations (no one would have time to post, more important things to deal with such as imminent life/death situation).
That amount of energy that can replace the equivalent of one day of work for a human being is one energy ‘slave’ unit.
>In “west” the “gain” from fire is said to amount to some 10 times the power of a healthy male, in kilowatts, or whatever. They say “we have each of us 10 energy slaves.” Perhaps so, whatever the multiple is, it’s from C and H in cooperation with O, unless it’s from the sun or from fission, more or less.“So? So limiting, throttling, the H and C translates directly to a loss of energy slaves. Since C and H are used to create food, we may expect a general and rapid reduction in the input, the “gain” of, and well-being of, the subject groups.””That’s assuming, naturally, that the relevant human groups are fairly stable in terms of number…aheeem.”> less food >> less people. Works in the other direction too according to the techno-Malthusians:
Specifically: : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthusianism#Preventive_vs._positive_population_controls
On the theory everything leading up to 2020 is in line with that goal, they’ve been working both ends – preventive and positive, but I digress.
>”I would now like to go on with respect to the jibbyjabbiethingies…but will not…it’s “QED” already, ain’t it?”<
Item #4 is for the benefit of everyone outside the US.
1. Recent revelations in the news of a certain class of experimental product. Of interest to slightly more than half the planet. Of concern to the other half of the planet who have to deal with the consequences.
2. QED, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q.E.D.#Etymology_and_early_use
3. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Jabberwock. Some of stories, the monster has poison claws. One scratch was fatal without an antidote (in some of the tellings).
4. Thingies – American vernacular for: a thing or things. A name of an object which doesn't come to mind at that moment. An un-nameable object in plain sight of the viewer. Or an object a person dare not name without risk -see: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fudge
The rest of the post is partially understood ( I think) on one level: gain is the harness of a useful work out of known amount of disorder is my best reading so far. the path is very unconventional way to make the point. Has a steganographic flavor. Already on my 22nd reading: ?? : | ??
In need of a clue, Mr P if you're out there.
Sigh..Measure several times, cut once:

That’s spetacular, stuff of higher vibratiomal minds and I can’t fathom it, except the ‘lull before the storm’ thought. We live in peculia times, and natural or predictive outcomes don’t aways occur, due to lack of drive, or failure of volitional power, that’s about it from me, over and out.
Thanks y’all. Yes, post metaphorical, even metaphysical, but also I just wanted to speak about the concept of gain. As in before that Site goes…
“rent” being a parasitic load – extracted cost of gain, and that can mean paying off men with guns and gasoline. After that there occurs some sort of focus between highly directional and isotropic. A campfire is more or less isotropic, gain more of less “1”. A laser being the other.
However, you will note that there is inevitable inescapable loss when a “signal” is focused…a lot of loss. There is also straight amplification, generally a waste of power, depending on target…broadcast radio only makes sense with a big area of people with receivers – there it makes sense. Amplification is also a form of gain. Gain as focus also costs. Whatever manipulation of power is done, there is loss.
Humanity in Zone A seems to be losing both organizational ability to create focus gain, and the amplifier inputs > C and H.
This ongoing loss may naturally be followed by a reduction in population, actually it’s inevitable. As to why… ah! More than one reason… Think on it. Which is less cruel, death by coincidence, or some other way? Yes, they’re crazy, but they think that way…
In Zone B it seems that the opposite process arises. For a period…
Recalling the most interesting essay https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/library/national/unabom-manifesto-1.html > Recalling that his analysis is seen by some to be sound. In consideration we must realize that a major reduction in Zone B is also inevitable…but much farther into future. I believe D. Orlov wrote about this some years ago. Nevertheless, much can happen and there are no promises. BTW I highly disapprove of murder. Ted’s method was perhaps understandable to himself, but his assumptions in that respect were indisputably false. Violence is generally a way to get what you don’t want.
Seen thusly, the reductions in Zone A will reduce the “cost” of gain for Zone B…rather like the “sanctions”!
The antenna equations related to gain provide useful concepts, see ARRL etc, and the US Navy Electronics manuals. These are, were, free to get off the ‘net.
In the fullness of Time Zone B will discover that the ladies decide to have fewer children, and with sound governmental policies there, they’ll look back on the History of the violent ideas of WEF and Billyboy Ghates, and these will seem baldly crazy.
I took in with relish the logical presentation @ Prospects for World War 3 – Dedicated to Andrei Raevsky, the Vineyard Saker > https://bmanalysis.substack.com/p/prospects-for-world-war-3-dedicated
Expect these events to become more frequent,
as fewer people are qualified to resolve the problems.
I remember that Andrey Martyanov has shown a disdain for Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
Days ago there was this article on the RSS feed:
Then StalkerZone published an article talking about it:
Seeing that one of Solzhenitsyn’s books was recommended in this thread, my head spins at what the general opinion of him here is and what position one shall take. I don’t wanna open a can of worms here. Anyone?
Thanks in advance.
With the countdown to the closing of this incomparable blog. I think we should cut through a lot of the future unknowns and just talk about needed results:
1. The US is openly (or close too openly) in their media talking about how they will be at war with China within a few years. While at the same time the amount of US/China trade is at record highs.I think the trade issue is important,but is really just a sideshow in the end. China needs to,if they don’t by now. Fully understand that the US plans to make war on them. And there is nothing that they alone can do to stop that. The US deep state has decided on that war. And without a full regime change in the US,and the destruction of the US deep state there is no changing that.
So what should China do? Since without doubt China should understand the US’s plan for them by now. The Chinese should do anything and everything they can to make sure that NATO/US fails in Ukraine. And Russia wins the war against NATO/US. If Russia needs money,give it. If Russia needs diplomatic support,give it. If Russia needs products or weapons, supply them. And the reason China should make those moves should be obvious to all but the braindead in our world.If Russia fails and is weakened or destroyed.Then China’s partner and protector in the North is gone. And China is irreplaceably weakened. And that just as the NATO/US wolves are licking their lips in anticipation of making a meal out of China. A weak or non-allied to China, Russia,is an existential threat to China and can’t be allowed to happen. Hopefully Beijing understands that fully by now.
2. The Ukraine situation is an existential threat to the RF. That situation should be the easy one to think about (yes friends,it’s the easy one). This concerns far more than just the Ukraine but lets consider the Ukraine first.
What should be the minimum Russia should expect from this situation? What is the maximum Russia should expect? And is there a middle ground or not?
At the minimum Russia should liberate and accept back into Russia the 9 mostly Russian speaking (and heavily ethnic Russian and Russian culturally) Oblasts. Crimea,Donetsk,Lugansk,Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson have already officially been accepted back home. But there are still 4 others,Kharkov,Odessa,Nikolaev,and Dnipropetrovsk that still need to be liberated and brought home. Until or unless they are brought home,the minimum can’t be reached.While the rest should be liberated,denazified,and a neutral (or allied to Russia) ,but pro-Russian rump Ukraine established. A maximum would be all of the former Ukraine rejoined to Russia. With or without some very small border adjustments made with neighboring countries.A middle ground might involve a Dnieper River border in the East. The South would still be up to Moldova in the Southwest.
Image of minimum results: http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/76582000/jpg/_76582686_novorosap.jpg
3. The harder issues discussed:
(A).A multipolar world of sovereign states must be established. We are slowly (too slowly in my opinion) headed that way. But have a long way to go. The international “organizations” all need to be reformed,or even new ones created to replace those existing today.The ones existing today have all been infiltrated by Western interests. They are really only extensions of Western governments interests.
(B). NATO and it’s political arm the EU need to be ended. NATO is a direct threat to world peace,so must go. The EU,from being an economic trade pact,morphed into the political arm of NATO and a dictatorship over the states imprisoned inside it.It needs to be ended,or reformed to return to being only a simple trade pact. There are of course several ways that can be accomplished. But the end results can not be changed.
I’ll stop this post with a quote that more than any other I can think of fits the times we live in:
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way ….” (Charles Dickens)
I just wish this blog would have been here to help guide us through those times.
Oddly enough, actually beating the Chinese is questionable, the models don’t calculate the faster response of the Chinese satellites compared to those of the U.S. military.
These balloons are an interesting introduction of something strange to the military, perhaps this is all bark and no bite.
You’ll know if the kids try to evade the draft that war is simply not a winnable option here, more money for talk and arms, but will the youth again, as they always have, sign up this time.
A note about the Commie balloon shoot-down.
A consequence is “authorization” of reciprocal action… From now on any State can play balloon bingo…
I rather imagine Comrade Xi is happy tonight.
Bingo, the “bignose” fell for the gag. Hubris! Whatchagunnado?
Maybe next time a “rainbow” balloon? They wouldn’t dare!!
Reading about bigbig Chinese blimp program. see> Multidisciplinary Optimization and Analysis of Stratospheric Airships Powered by Solar Arrays @ https://www.researchgate.net/publication/366829031_Multidisciplinary_Optimization_and_Analysis_of_Stratospheric_Airships_Powered_by_Solar_Arrays

It may be, as some claim, that the main driver of atmospheric weather is actually the influence of solar activity…as in that’s obvious. And solar activity is broad spectrum and highly variable. The electromagnetic effects in particular. Note, moving a conductor in a magnetic field creates electrical flow, the Earth moves is a magnetic field or flux that’s variable. The Earth is a conductor.
Since we’re experiencing some dramatic manifestations of extreme weather, well, under the circumstances I do suspect the commie balloon actually was a scientific platform observing mostly solar effects…of course any research has the potential to result in new knowledge – and may be called “spying” whenever you like. I myself “spy”, and so does everybody who takes the trouble to learn, eh? (Hi fellas!)
If, as some claim, the “west” does use balloons to spy (we know it does inside the US, so it’s a reasonable idea) – then our Communist brothers may now freely decide to bring a few to earth.
Most events have more than one feature.
Or maybe it’s not the Sun or the Solar system, maybe it’s all the planes seeding the atmosphere, three public US companies do it for the Government out in the open…….. or, it could be the Sun …….cue: Gonzalo Lira’s laugh
I’ve never considered the planet as a conductor, more of a giant capacitor, spinning in space, creating and storing static electricity. Hmm, bigbig static, as in lightening bolt static, as most lightening goes from the earth to the outer atmosphere.
So if I spray ferrous type nano particulate, like in the jibby, in the upper atmosphere I get……what exactly, other than ahhemmm, Climate Change. Throw in HAARP type devices with directionally arrayed antenna capable of directing energy to a specific point or location…..capable of exciting billions of micro particles…….Tesla 101.
There is much evidence of weather war taking place but is easier to hide and not scare the shit out of an already scarred shitless populace. We’re just getting used SADS and sudden onset fast killin’ cancers.
Just watching the flight tracker info, who is up there flying around, and what they are doing, registered companies, flying Government contracts, seeding the upper atmosphere…..the Governor of Illinois introduced a bill to stop all atmospheric weather modification in the skies over his State. So many forests in front of the tree.
Capacitor, yes. Also conductor. The system is very complex. Example> “Climatological predictions
of the auroral zone locations driven by moderate and severe space weather events”
Beyond my pay grade.
Noting that capacitors conduct alternation currents…that’s the way the old telephones rang, they rang with about 20 cycle AC on a DC circuit.
Yes, agree…they’re also fiddling with it. Spray. However the gain seems to be trivial and the effect lost in the overwhelming solar effects… I spoke of the solar radiation, but better to say also gassing and spewing a storm of electrons…better to see earth as an element in a giant high voltage vacuum tube, the elements themselves in motion. I wonder what the voltage differential between Anoxia and the North pole of Mars might be…
The ice storms seem to be caused by solar variation. I suspect that the Commie balloon instrumentation was to survey these effects, but it’s mostly intuition. That was a very impressive instrument array.
But how easy would it be for The crazy Dr. Kim to load a school bus with a payload and not wait until the Atlantic to drop its load.
The whole of the country would be waiting and asking, don’t shoot it down in my neighborhood.
Tip of the hat to Andrei and the Saker Team. The service you have provided, none such exists on the net, MOA comes close, but like most Men’s Bars it gets out of hand……not that it’s not fun to blow of steam at someone should the need arise but common sense and public decorum should always be the order of the day…..how does Mr Lavrov do it?
45 is the new 75, but only if you are 25, what a strange place we have become, I have a feeling this won’t last long.
China is back to growth. That will be a boost to the World economy (especially to those friends of China:

A lot of people struggle with how to reconcile Western Ukrainians to the end of Banderastan. Whether a new Federal Ukraine comes in to being. Or if rump Ukraine is brought back home to Russia. How do you get the population to accept those changes. After watching a good video about the economics of the Ukraine proxy war. I’m thinking I might have an answer to that issue.While it’s not covered directly in the video. Some problems Ukraine is shown to face in the video, jump started my thinking about that issue.
Ukrainians are facing under their current regime enormous unpayable debts to Western creditors. The regime is raising costs on the population. Privatizing most citizen services. Selling their land and properties to foreigners. Basically turning Ukrainian citizens into serfs of foreign nations and foreign companies.
Russia should do what they are doing in the reunited Oblasts now. Cancel those privatizing laws. Cancel those debts. And extent the Russian economy to all of Ukraine. Most people no matter who they are,and where they are, want stability and a decent future for themselves and their children. We saw how in Chechnya and in Crimea that worked. And it will most certainly work in most of Ukraine as well. And I would argue that once the initial denazification is completed in Western Ukraine,it would work there as well.Think back to Chechnya 19 years ago. And the level of violence and hatred there. And then think about Chechnya today.
Once the Western Ukrainians understand that under the Bandera regime they are being made serfs to the West. And that they will be forced to give back or pay for the Polish (and other) property loss during WWII,they will start to rethink their Bandera love. It’s good to remember that in most of the cities of Western Ukraine before WWII the Poles (not counting the large pre-war Jewish population) were the majority of those city populations. I think in Lvov they were almost 2/3 of the non-Jewish population. Certainly they made up over 50%. That means all those lands and houses might be open to return to the heirs of the previous Polish owners. Hundreds of thousands of Western Ukrainians ( at least) could easily lose their properties because of that. Once those people understand the fate in store for them. I suspect we could see a massive phycological switch take place there almost overnight:
Here is the economic video:
Rail car axils are starting to fail after too many hits from not being able to keep up with rail maintenance, this is going to be coast to coast but anyone familiar with the rust belt knows they always neglect their infrastructure first so this accident is, no accident, it been expected, pun intended.
Revealed by searchterm > “fatigue life railroad wheels axles” are a number of related papers and articles dealing with wheel, axle, and rail fatigue failures. I used yandex and also DDgo.
This interested me> “…Let’s start with safe-life protocols. Under the heaviest axle loads, fatigue cracks take time to develop in railway wheels and rails—usually more than 10 years, even in the most demanding cases and substantially longer in less demanding cases. In general, safe-life protocols aim at removing fatigue-prone components after a predefined level of exposure to their load environment; that is, safely before they are predicted to have any significant fatigue damage present. In this way, the components never really have a chance to fail in fatigue. Successful implementation of safe-life protocols requires substantial testing and computational modeling of the fatigue behavior of the affected components. Inspection, sampling, and other forms of in-service performance verification are also required to ensure that components, in fact, remain free of fatigue damage during their service.
The final strategy is termed “damage tolerant.” As the name implies, this appr…” (https://www.railwayage.com/news/wheel-and-rail-fatigue-prevention-strategies/)
RR wheels are an interference fit pressed onto the axle, which introduces to each set a variable tensile stress at the hub…no two parts will, in the real world, ever have precisely the same fit. I don’t know the standard, but on shafts and hubs of about the size, I’d guess about 0.006″ of interference at STD…and I don’t know if it’s done hot or cold…
What the “problem” seems to be is the evident Policy of run-to-failure, ie keeping the money and simply not doing diligent maintenance.
Vice, greed, hubris, contempt…and rust…
Thanks, I had not imagined that the RR fellas would be so cheap and arrogant.
Well we do have a throw away economy, but have we in the past decades just thrown our economy away?
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it works good for a while, but after that, it all just slowly goes to hell.
More earthquakes feared as sun’s most active regions turn toward Earth, potential for violent solar activity builds.
Pay attention to your pets or the behavior of outside wild life. I am in Southern California and warned in advance by my birds. Symbiosis: Humans & Birds Predicting Earthquakes – Mediumhttps://medium.com › architectonics › symbiosis-human…

Dogs are also more sensitive to the quakes than humans. Probably most animals can warn you even snakes.

The US nuclear sub docks shut down over ‘seismic’ concerns
Four drydocks in Washington state have been idled amid worries raised by an earthquake study.

US nuclear sub docks shut down over ‘seismic’ concerns
Four drydocks in Washington state have been idled amid worries raised by an earthquake study.
Violation of repair schedules can have very serious consequences in the future.
There is also a fourth dock at the Trident Refit Facility, in Bangor, which serves the Ohio-class submarine that requires anti-seismic strengthening. They are experiencing rare earthquakes that sound like someone is blasting rock.
“We had just built our house and moved in,” Mike Curcio said. “It sounded like rock blasting with a boom [and] each time we ran outside and ran around to see if anything had smashed into the house.”
There have been 51 of these small earthquakes, referred to as an “earthquake swarm,” in Dedham in the last two weeks, according to Berry. While the phenomenon is actually quite common in Maine, it’s rare for the quakes to happen in an area as populated as Dedham. The ongoing seismic activity is proving to be surprisingly disruptive to residents and their dogs, who are even more sensitive to the quakes.
Is there a relation between sunspot cycles and earthquakes?
Solar activity, as indicated by sunspots, radio noise and geomagnetic indices, plays a significant but by no means exclusive role in the triggering of earthquakes. Maximum quake frequency occurs at times of moderately high and fluctuating solar activity.

As sun’s most active regions turn toward Earth, potential for violent solar activity builds
By Robert Lea published 24 days ago
Solar activity continues to climb, raising the risk of solar flares and coronal mass ejections that could affect power and communications infrastructure here on Earth.
Home/News/Powerful eruptions on the Sun might trigger earthquakes
Powerful eruptions on the Sun might trigger earthquakes
Ground-shaking earthquakes occur all across the globe. And according to a new study, many of them might be triggered by the Sun.
The correlation does seem manifest.
Speculating as to geophysical agency involved…there’s a massive amount of gas dissolved in the earth, deep in the earth, mostly hydrogen in various associations. Does the solar behavior amount to “shaking the soda can”…thus triggering phase changes from solution to gas? Deep earthquakes are understood to operate by outgassing, so I have read. See “Deep Earth Gas Hypothesis”
In related, possibly, matter see> https://www.mdpi.com/1424-8220/20/7/2080 “High-Altitude Balloon-Based Sensor System Design and Implementation”
Thanks particularly for “As sun’s most active regions turn toward Earth, potential for violent solar activity builds”
Might the West Coast nuclear sub dock shutdowns be analogous to and cover for flushing out berthed vessels prior to an anticipated counterattack? WA & California states are in such target-rich environments, commensurate with “touching” the Ring of Fire, of which they ARE card carrying members.. every treaty has been violated already, and every shred of decency, so why not the 1977 UN treaty as one openly touches Eurasia?
1,001 proper studies do not obviate prosaic consideration, such as real climate change being leveraged for other purposes, and fiddling with esoteric gadgetry. Of course there is plausible deniability and no certainties either way. However History, Chekhov’s gun, and current desperation does inform. If one knows one’s end is neigh, and the gallows are the absolute best case scenario in which lie all hopes, what is impermissible?? And bioweapons aren’t the penultimate card prior to nuclear war. We are in the Age of Tesla
Brother! Wie gehts? I thought Yemen was a bold thing. Kudos! Babies? And the earthquake?
Yes, Weather… I tend to agree. Note however that submarine boats spend about 1/2 of their service life in drydock…so when they put to sea in a manner such that they’re forgoing proper maintenance and crew rotation…well, it might be seen as a response to, or anticipation of… And telegraph intent, design. I read some months ago that the Russian fleets left harbor… and assume they’re doing their best to stay at sea, within the constraints of crew fatigue and maintenance…fast turnarounds I imagine.
When back to sea an army will fight.

My friend Victor has posted another Berlin letter>

Do you want to betray us good lemmings. Maybe you’re a fox-lover, even a wolf-lover. You’d better keep in line till we reach our proper goal.” As lemming-lovers sadly know, that goal could be over the cliff into the sea. And I don’t think lemmings can swim! Is such a cliff perhaps near the Black Sea? Or along the Dnieper? And are there any today who—like lemmings—keep in the crowd?
No, Germany’s foreign minister, Annelina Baerbock, is no lemming! She must see herself more like a leader of those African buffalos who join horns and hooves to repulse a predator’s attack. “We are not fighting against each other,” she told European deputies, and then declared openly what the media, less directly, has been plugging for years: “We are fighting a war against Russia!” But this all too truthful taboo-breaker had to be diluted; her deputy quickly corrected:
We support Ukraine, but under international law. Germany is not a party to the war.” and so on…
” real climate change being leveraged for other …” Of course…one works with what’s going on. I do think, fwiw, that they’re doing something with the sky, but I expect most of climate change is natural variation, let’s say by the hand of God…so of course the devil will hijack the scene.

Warm grass-sprouting day @ Anoxia, frost is past. Kitties and dogs frolicking, old man raking leaves…
Movie presaging the “goodfellas” in 404 and so on, and in German precincts as well as certain loci in CONUS> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40zcGhvekhs (2 hours. Very dark comedy…) Funny about how art portends reality, a charming feature in God’s creations…I am quite sure He has a sense of humor.
Grüß Gott Bruder. Alles ist gut, Gott sei Dank.
You will enjoy my merry travels in Yemen. I didn’t enter a war zone. There are still some quiescent provinces; we had cause to visit relatives there. My first official publication was thereof. Google “A Travelogue of Felix Arabia, late Autumn 2022”

The same shaman who was at the Swiss Gotthard tunnel opening (iirc, in front of an adoring Frau Merkel) was at the Jan 06 Congressional “Insurrection” and his twin at the Brazilian parliament “Insurrection” a few weeks ago. “ …And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages… ”
Yes, I very much foresee Lemmings right off the cliffs of Balaclava Bay.. wasn’t it always about Crimea, irrespective of excuse-du-jour? It sets up the final confrontation of Constantinople vs Jerusalem and the culmination of a two millennia long war.. whose Messiah shall Triumph?? The pieces are being moved furiously nowadays!
I already enjoyed the Russian-American’s engrossing account to Brother Regis. Most excellent and timely. A former US tank commander with finger on current muscovite pulse.. “Will you listen now??” How many more Signs do they need? Yes, I tend to agree with Rector Batiushka. After VVP will come a Tzar, and one wielding a flaming sword a la Medvedev. We are in the Age of Prophecies too
Its a combination.
You are extracting hydrocarbon material from inside the Earth causing it to shrink while the upper crust remains the same, the force of rotation should naturally shake things around the boundrys in direct proportion to the material removed nearby.
