The Space Block: A New Level of Division by the US

SPACE BLOC: Germany, citing “security impact”, becomes part of US-led space exploration bloc as it signs Artemis Accords, designed by Washington to exploit Moon, Mars and other profitable and mineral-rich asteroids.

Germany joins Ukraine, India, Italy and others to become 29th nation to sign the Artemis Accords as US leads effort to divide space into (military) blocs.

The Artemis Accords were first launched and signed by eight nations in October 2020, with representatives of its signatory nations meeting in person for the first time at the International Astronautical Congress in Paris on September 19, 2022.

In terms of scope, the accords relate to activities on in orbit, on the surface, and in the subsurface of the moon, Mars, comets, and asteroids. It also covers the stable orbital points known as the Lagrangian points for the Earth-moon system and is applied to objects in transit between these celestial bodies and locations.

Co-led by NASA and the U.S. Department of State, the Artemis Accords are signed at a national level rather than on an organizational level, and countries that sign the accord do so on a voluntary basis. The question that arises though is: why is such a peaceful accord of global significance not conducted under the auspices of the UN as a global treaty? Because it is not envisioned to be an accord for the common good, but to rally the vassals to serve the One-Party interests.

According to NASA as of Aug. 1, 2023, the nations signed up to the Artemis Accords are as follows:

  1. Argentina
  2. Australia
  3. Bahrain
  4. Brazil
  5. Canada
  6. Columbia
  7. Czech Republic
  8. Ecuador
  9. France
  10. Germany
  11. India
  12. Israel
  13. Italy
  14. Japan
  15. Luxemburg
  16. Mexico
  17. New Zealand
  18. Nigeria
  19. Poland
  20. Republic of Korea
  21. Romania
  22. Rwanda
  23. Saudi Arabia
  24. Singapore
  25. Spain
  26. Ukraine
  27. United Arab Emirates
  28. United Kingdom
  29. United States of America

Are We Facing the Day of Reckoning?

Is the Biden administration already preparing the public for the loss of Ukraine? Is the Biden administration changing the focus to the new wave of hysteria about the Covid Hoax as a cover up for the loss of Ukraine? It seems pretty much so. Is the loss of Ukraine a precursor to the dismantling of NATO, or at least its partial dismantling?

This is not about Covid but about the start of the collapse of the US hegemony. It is the introduction of a form of Martial Law and a new regime of authoritarian governance by the defeated elites. Where are we going from here? Nuclear war or regime change in the US?

Strange events are coming. We haven’t seen much, as of yet.

First, YouTube to Censor Content Contradicting WHO Guidelines YouTube has introduced a new “medical misinformation policy” that will censor any medical or health-related content that doesn’t align with claims made by the World Health Organization (WHO). YouTube earlier had a “COVID-19 Misinformation Policy” webpage that stated that the platform doesn’t allow any content that “poses a serious risk of egregious harm” and spreads “medical misinformation” contradicting what the WHO or local health authorities (LHA) say about the COVID-19 pandemic. The webpage now redirects to a “medical misinformation policy” page that expands the censorship rule to “specific health conditions and substances” rather than COVID-19 alone. Content that contradicts guidance on treatments, including promoting “specific harmful substances or practices” not approved by authorities or the WHO as safe and effective, also won’t be allowed on the platform. Claims that vaccines cause chronic side effects “outside of rare side effects” recognized by health authorities would be deemed as “vaccine misinformation” by YouTube.

Second, Biden Admin Preparing to Bring Back Full Covid Restrictions, Rollout to Begin Mid-September – Report. Whistleblowers from the TSA and Border Patrol have raised the alarm to Infowars that the Biden administration is setting the stage for full Covid lockdowns that will begin with incremental restrictions like masking TSA employees in mid-September.

The first source, a high-level TSA official confirmed and known to Infowars, reached out to Infowars and cited a Tuesday meeting in which TSA managers were told new memorandums & policies were being completed that would reimplement masking, starting with TSA & airport employees as early as mid-September.

The TSA official also said next week they will receive new guidelines on how the policy will escalate: by mid-October, mask-wearing will be required by pilots, flight staff, passengers, and airport patrons.

After hearing from the TSA manager, Infowars reached out to our trusted Border Patrol source who is also a manager. This source confirmed the same directives were being given to Border Patrol.

They were told it was not a matter of “if” but “when” official Covid numbers will go back up and they expect by mid-October a return to forced-masking policies that the Biden administration previously only reluctantly ended after massive pressure.

Both whistleblowers were told this rollout will be in tandem with the new Covid “variant” hysteria that the MSM has been reporting on this week.

mRNA COVID Vaccines May Be Triggering ‘Turbo Cancers’ in Young People – Experts

by Megan Redshaw, J.D. via The Epoch Times

Experts are seeing a puzzling rise in cancer in people under 50 that appears biologically different from late-onset cancers. While some claim cancer rates have been rising for decades and attribute the increase to sugary drinks, lifestyle, and sleep disruptions, others say mRNA COVID-19 vaccines have caused an emergence of “turbo cancers”—and U.S. regulatory agencies have not addressed the ever-growing problem.

Although there is no official medical definition for what doctors are calling “turbo cancers,” the term is commonly used to define aggressive, rapid-onset cancers resistant to treatment—primarily in young, healthy individuals following COVID-19 vaccination. These cases often present in a late stage with metastasis and quickly turn fatal.

“What’s happening is these cancers we’re used to seeing, their growth patterns and their behavior are completely out of character … So ‘turbo cancer’ is something that wasn’t there and, all of a sudden, it’s everywhere,” Dr. Ryan Cole, a pathologist and CEO of Cole Diagnostics, said in an interview on EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders.”

Dr. Cole told The Epoch Times in a later interview that he first noticed an uptick in certain types of cancers after the vaccine rollout in December 2020 and believes researchers are starting to understand how these cancers are occurring.

“Physicians are seeing multiple types of cancers in their day-to-day practices—and in young patient cohorts where you typically don’t see cancer. Although the increase in cancer has been blamed on missed screenings, you know it isn’t due to missed screenings because young people don’t typically get screened,” Dr. Cole said.

Cancers are increasing at a rate above what’s expected, and countless doctors and clinicians around the world have confirmed this. Their patients are cancer-free for years, but then after a booster, cancers “pop up,” he added. What’s unique about turbo cancers is that they do not respond to traditional treatment because the cells have been altered in the bone marrow, and the cells “aren’t doing what they’re supposed to.”

Studies and Case Reports of Cancer Following COVID-19 Vaccination

Studies and case reports of various cancers following mRNA vaccination are helping experts understand the potential mechanisms that may be allowing these cancers to proliferate.

In a recent Belgian study published in Frontiers Oncology, researchers presented the first case of malignant lymphoma in mice. Malignant lymphoma is a rare adverse event reported following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.

Two days after receiving a booster dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, one of 14 mice suffered spontaneous death. Upon examination, the 14-week-old mouse had abnormally large organs and cancerous lymphoma in the liver, kidneys, spleen, heart, and lungs. Although showing direct causality is complex, the authors said their findings add to “previous clinical reports on malignant lymphoma development following novel mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.”

In a January 2023 paper in Medicina, researchers presented the case of a 66-year-old man who developed swollen lymph nodes 10 days after receiving his third dose of Pfizer. After further testing, the patient was diagnosed with stage 2 non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). A literature review found eight additional cases of NHL that developed shortly after COVID-19 vaccination. Five lymphoma cases occurred after vaccination with Pfizer, one case after vaccination with AstraZeneca, one after the Johnson & Johnson shot, and one after vaccination with Moderna.

In an August 2022 Letter to the Editor in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology, physicians described two patients diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that developed from swollen lymph nodes following vaccination with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The study’s authors found that diffuse large B-cell lymphoma “may rapidly grow” after vaccination with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine and urged dermatologists to pay attention to swollen lymph nodes or masses near the injection site.

Swollen lymph nodes, or lymphadenopathy, is considered a common side effect of COVID-19 vaccination, more often observed following immunization with novel COVID-19 mRNA vaccines than other vaccines.

Lymphadenopathy is also an acknowledged “non-serious” adverse event of COVID-19 vaccination listed in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) fact sheets for health care providers for both Moderna and Pfizer’s monovalent and bivalent vaccines. However, pharmaceutical companies and U.S. regulatory agencies have not assessed whether there’s a link between vaccine-related lymphadenopathy and cancer.

A year after the vaccine rollout, researchers published a case report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) of a healthy 39-year-old woman diagnosed with “vaccination-associated reactive lymphadenopathy” following vaccination with Pfizer’s vaccine. Six months later, she was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in her right breast—the same side of the body where she received her vaccination and experienced swollen lymph nodes.

Urgent Need to Determine Underlying Causes of Turbo Cancers

The exact mechanism giving rise to turbo cancers is unknown, and it’s unclear whether one or multiple mechanisms are responsible for these cancers, Dr. William Makis, an oncologist, cancer researcher, and nuclear medicine radiologist, told The Epoch Times in an email.

Dr. Makis provided the following several possible hypotheses for how mRNA COVID-19 vaccines could cause turbo cancers:

  1. The current COVID-19 mRNA vaccines contain pseudouridine-modified mRNA,which attenuates or alters the activity of key proteins in the innate immune system, impairing cancer surveillance.

When activated, these key proteins, called toll-like receptors, can prevent tumorsfrom forming and growing.

  1. Vaccination alters T-cell signaling that induces profound impairmentin type 1 interferon and cancer surveillance.

T-cells, a type of white blood cell, help the body’s immune system prevent cancer. Studies show that getting multiple shots increases the level of a particular antibody called IgG4, causing T-cell and interferon suppression, leading to an inability to keep cancer in check, Dr. Cole told The Epoch Times.

“Everyone gets atypical cells in their body every day, and having a surveillance system is important, but when the surveillance system is shut off, that allows these cells to go haywire. How long it stays suppressed, nobody knows, and these are the studies NIH (the National Institutes of Health) should have been doing,” said Dr. Cole.

  1. The shift of the antibody IgG4 caused by repeated mRNA vaccination could create a tolerance for spike protein and impair the production of the antibodies IgG1 and IgG3 and cancer surveillance.

  2. The spike protein produced by the body after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination may interfere with important tumor suppressor proteins—P53, BRCA 1, and two tumor suppressor genes.

  3. The spike protein may interfere with DNA repair mechanisms.

  4. The RNA from the COVID-19 vaccines may be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome.

  5. Pfizer and Moderna vials found to be contaminated with plasmid DNA containing SARS-CoV-2 spike protein may integrate into the human genome.

  6. The presence of the simian virus 40 (SV40) in DNA discovered in Pfizer mRNA vaccine vials may lead to cancers—most notably, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other lymphomas—as it did with SV40-contaminated polio vaccines.

  7. mRNA-based vaccines may be triggering the release of oncogenes—oncomiRs or microRNAs, which can enhance or inhibit cancer development and participate in cancer biological processes, such as proliferation, invasion metastasis, angiogenesis, chemoresistance, and immune escape.

“I believe there is an urgent need to determine the underlying mechanisms of turbo cancers because, at this time, oncologists have nothing to offer patients who have developed a turbo cancer, and conventional cancer treatments offer minimal or no benefit,” Dr. Makis told The Epoch Times.

Mr. David Wiseman, a research scientist in pharmacy, pharmacology, and experimental pathology, told The Epoch Times in an email that neither Comirnaty—Pfizer’s fully approved version of its COVID-19 vaccine—nor Spikevax by Moderna has been evaluated for its potential to cause cancer.

On March 30, 2023, Mr. Wiseman and four other experts submitted a 27-page document to the National Academies Committee, an ad hoc committee tasked with reviewing relevant adverse events associated with COVID-19 vaccines.

Using the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)—a database co-managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA used for reporting vaccine adverse events—Mr. Wiseman and his coauthors found an excess of cancer signals for COVID-19 vaccines from Dec. 14, 2020, to July 24, 2023, compared to all other vaccines for all years beginning in 1990.

A safety signal indicates a condition may be linked to a vaccine but requires further analysis to confirm an association.

The findings complemented the CDC’s Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) analyses obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that assessed adverse events reported from Dec. 14, 2020, to July 29, 2022.

A PRR compares reports of specific adverse events experienced after receiving Moderna or Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine to those following vaccination with any other vaccine or all non-COVID-19 vaccines. The CDC’s PRR report detected cancer signals for colon cancer, metastatic breast cancer, metastasis to the liver, bones, central nervous system, lymph nodes, breast masses, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, B-cell lymphoma, and follicular lymphoma.

Mr. Wiseman said it’s clear from the FOIA documents that the CDC is aware of cancer reports and isn’t being forthcoming.

“Government agencies knew there were going to be cancers with these shots, and they were trying to cover it up, but the data is trickling out,” Dr. Cole told The Epoch Times, referring to 490 pages of communications obtained from the NIH through a FOIA request.

The CDC is supposed to report on morbidity and mortality—and when a pathologist diagnoses anything, he or she uses a diagnosis code, and it goes to the federal basis that’s reported to federal tracking agencies, Dr. Cole explained.

“All these data subsets should be easy to find if agencies would report what they have,” he said. “We could see statistical changes in diagnosis in the past two and a half years since shots were rolled out. The question is, why are other governments around the world not doing this?”

TSA Rolling Out ‘Voluntary’ Facial Recognition Program To Another 400 Domestic Airports

by Tim Cushing via The TechDirt

Ever since the fall of 2018, the DHS has been threatening the American public with increased surveillance on top of the insults and intrusions TSA officers physically perform at security checkpoints.

The first inklings of this rollout came in the form of a Privacy Impact Assessment released by the DHS in September 2018. The assessment suggested there wasn’t enough privacy impacted to prevent the expansion of this program from international airports (where terrorism might be more of a threat) to domestic airports and wholly domestic flights, to ensure all citizens boarding aircraft were forced to interact with the TSA’s biometric collection/verification programs.

This was confirmed a month later, when the TSA announced the expansion of the program to extend past borders/international airports to cover PreCheck passengers and, finally, everyone else who hadn’t decided to opt in or had been forced to opt in by passing through an international airport.

Despite it being clear for a half-decade the DHS intends to subject all travelers to problematic tech, the DHS and TSA reps continue to pretend this collection/verification process is still optional. The TSA would prefer it be far less optional, since it will allow it to reduce the number of officers it employs and let machines do (most of) the work.

In fact, the TSA has said as much publicly. In March of this year, TSA administrator David Pekoske again noted the process is still (supposedly) optional, but that it’s not going to stay that way for long. How long that will be remains to be seen, but as Wilfred Chan reports for Fast Company, the rollout is continuing with hundreds more airports on the horizon.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is preparing to expand its controversial facial recognition program to around 430 airports over the next “several years” after finding “extremely promising” results from its pilot program, an agency spokesperson tells Fast Company. The expansion comes amid allegations by rights advocates that the agency is improperlycoercing travelers to participate.

The TSA is currently “assessing” the facial recognition program at 25 airports. TSA press secretary Robert Langston said this small sample size has been an unmitigated success, with the TSA’s algorithm reportedly matching people with a 97% success rate “across demographics.”

And the TSA still maintains the program is optional for travelers. And yet real world experience seems to indicate the TSA is just hoping everyone encountering the scanners believes it isn’t.

Out of 67 responses collected by Algorithmic Justice League this week, 60 travelers reported that they saw no signs warning that they would be asked to submit to facial recognition, and 65 travelers said that TSA officers did not ask them for consent.

“I didn’t know there was an option. It happened so quickly, and it didn’t seem like there was a choice,” one traveler wrote. “I hadn’t flown in 10 years and I was overwhelmed and didn’t realize what was happening.”

Another traveler said that they started to walk away after their traditional ID check was finished, only to be stopped and told to return to the camera. “I was not told I could disagree to it, and it was made to seem like it was a new procedure,” they wrote.

Others reported feeling there was no alternative option or that opting out would subject them to body frisks or detainment. So, technically optional, but with plenty of travelers being made to feel engaging with the TSA’s biometric scanners is the only real option.

The TSA doesn’t mind projecting success from an extremely small sample size of 25 airports. (And it says it will not be releasing the results of this limited study to the public, so we’re just expected to take it at its word.) But it does have a problem with other small sample sizes, especially when the majority of responses undercut the TSA’s “this is all extremely optional” PR statements.

When forwarded these accounts, TSA’s Langston dismissed their allegations. “While TSA cannot respond to a summary report that seems to lack statistical validity with 67 respondents, I can tell you that TSA’s two-year study was based in scientific rigor and that signs are posted at each podium highlighting the voluntary nature of participation and that if anyone expressed reservation at the podium, the officer is there to conduct a manual identification verification process with ease and without delay,” he says.

Statistics are only valid if you agree with them. That appears to be the TSA’s stance. Its press secretary insists that if anyone feels this scanning might not be optional, they’re free to “speak up.” This is an ignorant thing to say when it’s the TSA that gets to decide who gets to board a plane and/or how much additional scrutiny they’re subjected to. “Speaking up” is generally not the best way to get officious officers to wave you through security. But it’s a great way to ensure you’ll be spending a lot more time talking to people who believe you’re a troublemaker.

The only other evidence of the TSA’s side of the story presented by its press secretary is even further removed from “statistical validity.”

“[W]hat we’ve heard anecdotally is that people appreciate the convenience of being able to get through security with the image capture. People love these things.”

Riiiiiiiiight. I’m sure travelers are walking up to generally unqualified government agents with the power to take away their freedoms and thanking them for adding more surveillance tech to the flying experience. Anecdotally, the press secretary is full of shit.

The TSA wants every airport to be manned by facial recognition tech and every passenger to be mandatorily subjected to it. That’s the end goal. What we’re seeing now are just the waypoints en route to a massive, connected surveillance apparatus. I guarantee that once it’s fully in place, all the assurances the TSA has made about extremely limited data retention will evaporate. It’s just too tempting to collect it all and retain it as long as possible. And the DHS has never been praised for its willpower or its discretion.

The Trip Back Home to the Former US

From an anonymous comment:

This is a story of returning home to the US after a one year absence. The first part describes the experience the travelers had with the manager at the Spirit Airlines check-in desk and the subsequent letter of complaint to the airline. Even more telling of the state of affairs in the US is Part II.

A country, an economy, a society in a state of widespread breakdown and highly dysfunctional.

Part I

Letter of complaint to Spirit Airlines Customer Service. Flight confirmation: RJ4SPW.

On May 31, 2023, we presented ourselves at the check-in line for flight 338, after having checked in online but not being able to view or print the boarding pass.

The woman at the start of the line asked to see my passport. I showed her the passport, she marked it on her list, then I I asked, why do I need to show my passport in order to get in line to show my passport? There were very few people in line. This is stupid!

Then she asked for my wife’s passport. And I showed her my wife’s passport, and I said don’t you see that we are together?

She marked down my wife’s passport , and we went ahead to the check in.

Meanwhile we were approached by a woman who did not introduce herself but acted like a prison guard, (I’ll call her “the prison guard”) telling me that we have to present our passports to the woman at the line entry, which is what we just did. I said, I just did show her the passports.

The woman acting like a prison guard continued yelling, “listen to me! Don’t interrupt me. You need to present your passport”. I said again, I just did present the passports.

Next she called out to the check-in desk saying “Deny boarding!! deny boarding!” And in seconds a military police pulled us over and started talking to us in Spanish. I said I don’t speak Spanish, I’m a tourist. After that both of them were trying to lecture us for a few minutes, the prison guard woman yelling again and again that we did not present our passports.

Then, I called over the woman at the entry line with the list, and I asked her: “didn’t I present our passports to you ?” She said yes. She checked her list and showed it. “But you called me stupid”, she said. No, I explained to everybody, I did not say she was stupid, I was complaining about the system. And I have every right to an opinion, to my opinion! The system is stupid.

At that point the prison guard woman yelled, “Refund! no flight for you !” We were refunded and out on the street.

The entire event was an unprecedented abuse, totally out of place, unconstitutional and in contravention of the basic rights of travelers. We had business interests to attend to in the US. Besides anything else, such ill-treatment of customers is beyond any justification, norm, regulation. Throwing a U.S. citizen out in the street, in a foreign country, on top of falsely accusing us of some imaginary non-compliance or even discourtesy is a criminal act. The prison guard woman did not even inquire as to what happened.

Part II

We arrived back home in CR kind of dazed. Now, what?

OK, we’re not going to go “home”. We don’t need to go… But, wait a minute, I ordered a lot of stuff which is now being shipped to our house at the Lake, including a new iPad. What’s going to happen? Let’s see what options we still have. — Well, I actually found a different flight, $20+ less, for tomorrow with American Airlines. We have a new plan.

No check in, since we had the boarding pass, but I couldn’t stop myself from telling the guy at the help desk about yesterday’s story with Spirit. “Oh,” he said. “You were the guys, yesterday! and they called the police on you ?! No, they were wrong to do that,” etc. So that was a big story in the entire airport.

At the security check they asked me to take off my shirt. I had a shirt unbuttoned over a colored T-shirt and that was considered a security risk. I pointed out that he had his shirt on. He said, “I am the police and if you want to fly you take your shirt off”. I had to take the shirt off but I got away with telling him, “f’ the police”.

Meanwhile waiting to board our flight, we heard that the guys from Spirit were having a bad day. Due to a “computer glitch” all Spirit flights were cancelled indefinitely (it lasted more than for 6 hours as far as we know). Mayhem, chaos, distress for Spirit passengers across the entire world. God heard my curses for what happened the day before!

We arrived in Charlotte but had to wait almost an hour for the plane to have a gate available. Poor planning is evident immediately.

At the border control we were told that no paperwork was required — They use facial recognition technology. What?! Our guy at the booth is an older man. Thinking that this is a good sign, I tell him right away that facial recognition without our consent is unconstitutional, etc. He says, “so you don’t want to be photographed” ? “Well, how long are you storing these photos, where? I hope the Russians are going to win …” — That’s OK, he says, you can skip that. He then processes our passports and hands us a special yellow card. “Now you go to the office.” Ooops . . . that must have been a patriotic military veteran.

We had no baggage other than small carry-ons, mostly empty. At the “office” two bored lads are laughing. They don’t care. Out we go.

Now the plot thickens. First, we had to go through security screening again in order to board the domestic connection to NY. As usual we opted out of the X-ray/microwave machine (mostly in order to start a whole circus of pat-downs and in order to harass the whole staff, as I actually told them straight up).

We made it through, after instructing all of them that we need a revolution to hang all the criminal elites, starting with the demented president. Interestingly, quite a few agreed.

We rewardered ourselves with an ice cream and headed to the gate. Surprise, though – when we arrive at the departure gate for the connection to New York, there was nobody waiting. Oh! the flight was canceled due to “mechanical problems” – someone claims a flat tire! After a long wait in line at Customer Service, just before midnight, we got our vouchers for the 35 Km taxi drive to the hotel. Every close hotel was already booked by other canceled flights — No getting home today, for a second day.

Our taxi driver, a smart Ethiopian, explains: oh, this is nothing. Two days ago there were like 2,000 American Airlines passengers stranded in Charlotte overnight. Yesterday, there were only 900.

The taxi trip for the two of us alone for the one way, cost the airline over $40, plus the return next day, total, just under $100.

Had a good sleep and a good breakfast, all paid by AA. I should mention, this is South Carolina, and the breakfast room was populated with mostly blacks, mostly obese, oversized fat behinds, whichever way you look around.

In the morning, we called our Ethiopian friend for the drive back to the airport. How does he like life in the US? Oh, yeah, I like it, if you work hard you can make money, more freedom, everything is easy, you know. Really?… Well, yes, it’s true, it’s hard, I used to drive a big truck, an 18-wheeler, at over $2 per mile. Then there was no more work for me. A lot of the big trucks are mothballed. No business. They cannot even afford to maintain the batteries. Too expensive. “Do you have a family?” Yes, and two kids, here is a photo. “Are you not worried?” “I am very worried, I have a lot of responsibility… And, I know, it’s going to get only worse. I do see, the American blacks don’t work, and the country is spending money on Ukraine; why not on the Americans?”

Back at the airport. Security screening again. Same circus. Pat-downs. The guy who pats me down tells me just like the driver: “I know is going to be bad, I follow the events, and the stock market . . .” That reminds me of the famous quip: when your doorman gives you a stock market tip it’s time to bail out . . . This time I test positive for explosives. A different guy pats me down again. Same. Positive. Meanwhile I lecture everyone about the demented elies and why the US is going to be defeated by Russia. But they don’t know what to do with me. I keep laughing. So all of this technology and waste of money on your salaries? For what?

The manager comes. Nice guy. He doesn’t know what to do. He asks me if I would go through the X-ray machine? No way, I say, I opted out, but I offer that I can go through the metal detector. Oh, really, great! Let’s do that. I went through the metal detector like a fish through the water. No “beep.” Meanwhile we have a full staff conference to decide what to do with me. Including now the police chief, another woman.

What to do? I keep laughing, yes, the revolution, that’s what we need. – They let me go.

Finally, we even manage to get on board the plane. We’ll be home soon… Only that, not yet.

Just before take off, the plane stops. Now, what? The captain is very cordial and communicative. There is a storm in the New York area. We have to wait. I check the weather radar in New York on my phone. (That is a sign of the new technological democracy!) Not really. Some small patches of stormy rain, no big deal. I show that to the flight attendant. Look, there are no storms in New York. She snaps back: don’t you trust the captain? No, it is all incompetence, I tell her, as she walks away. Well, not that the captain is incompetent, the incompetence is of the whole country run by “affirmative action” hires – they have to employ minorities and women. Luckily, the captain is one of those reliable white men, and very on-the-ball.

The captain then says we’ll know in an hour whether we can make it within the 3-hour remaining window that allows the returning crew to fly or we need to disembark, cancel the flight or wait for another crew.

At just 1 minute before the 3 hour limit, the captain gets the go ahead, he pushes hard on the throttle and we take off at a blazing speed. And we make it home. End of story.

The moral of the story, coming back to the US after a long absence, we found the country decrepit on several levels, and on the verge of desintegration. Everything is very expensive*. Everybody is grumpy and surly. Incompetence prevails. Minorities are everywhere, all shades of black, brown and Asiatics, most of them sporting a chip on their sholders. Utter decadence in outlook. Young women and even not-so-young, mostly whites!, parading around the airport in short shorts, almost underwear, half naked, as the typical outfit; bad postures, bad bodies, and a lot of “no speak English”.

We found the local economy in grave condition. Prices at the supermarket are between double and triple last we knew. But worse than everything else, everywhere the working class is non-white, non-English. When trying to ask for something that was available a few years ago in the supermarket, they never heard of it. In the entire enormous supermarket we came across only 3 (older) whites. “You moved to Costa Rica?” – “Oh, how lucky you.”

*P.S. A few price comparisons:

A nonstop round flight San Jose to New York a few years ago, around $200. Today over $800. But one can get a discount price for a 1-stop flight at $375, if lucky.

A taxi ride from the airport to our house: 2 years ago = $70. One year ago = $100. Today: $140 and the guy was not happy with my tip of $14.

P.P.S. This is the response we received from Spirit: “I’ve shared your experience with our management team so they can investigate how our team performed and work to improve the service we provide to our Guests.”

P.P.P.S. We were just notified by American Airlines that our bags were delayed and that they will deliver them at no cost to our home . . . Nice. The only problem is that we have not checked any bag, and we are in good order. Thanks.

Ukraine War for Another 20 Years?!

Even Dmitry Medvedev said that the war in Ukraine could last for decades. Is that true? His logic is simple.
1. Ukraine. Losses in the year about 100 thousand people. This from the population at the beginning of 2022 of 30 million is 0.3%. In 10 years, 3% of the population will be killed, 6% of men. This is still very little for the political system in Ukraine now, which is an artificial polytechnological totalitarian regime, like a sect. Society won’t even notice. Ukraine will be ready to fight for another 20 years.
2. USA. Almost no loss. Swap old weapons for newer ones. The military-industrial complex is loading a little more. And the United States has a lot of political benefits from the war in Ukraine.
3. European Union. The expenses are not big. Small problems from refugees. But everything is very tolerable.
4. Russia. Losses are apparently 2 times less than Ukraine. With a population of 5 times (in Russia 150 million, in Ukraine 30 million) more, the relative loss of less than 0.3% of the population over 10 years. That is 10 times less. It will not affect politics and economics. The Russian economy has not fallen from the sanctions.
5. Therefore the conclusion is clear. 10 years of war is quite within the power of everyone. After that, everyone will calmly go for another 10 years of war.
6. Ask about the economy of Ukraine? Yes, everything is fine. Ukraine does not need an economy. All the needs of the inhabitants of Ukraine, firstly, are artificially minimized, and secondly, they are covered from the EU budget.

Do Medvedev’s options for the development of the conflict in Ukraine seem realistic?The EU will not divide Ukraine. The US and the EU do not need a prosperous Ukraine, they do not need Ukraine as a normal member of the EU. The fate of Ukraine according to the plans of the United States and Europe is only Anti-Russia. Only a poor, evil country, grinning at Russia. As long as Russia exists.

Chomsky: Europe May Face Decline, Deindustrialization by Staying in ‘US-Dominated System’

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Europe will experience a likely decline and deindustrialization if it chooses to stay within the system dominated by the United States, renowned US academic and philosopher Noam Chomsky told Sputnik.

“Europe has a major decision to make: Will it stay within the US-dominated system, facing likely decline and even, some predict, deindustrialization?” Chomsky said. “Or will it accommodate in some fashion to its natural economic partner to the East, rich in mineral resources that Europe needs and a gateway to the lucrative China market?”

Chomsky noted that these questions have arisen in one form or another since World War II.

“The Gaullist concept of Europe linking with Russia as an independent force in world affairs found echoes in Willy Brandt’s Ostpolitik and other initiatives, and more broadly in Gorbachev’s proposals after the collapse of the Soviet Union,” he said. “Again, we can only speculate.”

When asked whether he thinks we are on the threshold of a new world order and if the Ukrainian conflict can be a catalyst for major changes, Chomsky said: “There is much controversy about the shape of the emerging world system.”

Chomsky explained the basic alternatives are a multipolar United Nations-based system or a unipolar “rules-based” system, where the United States sets the rules and as the record reveals, disregards them when it chooses to.

“The former is largely supported by most of the world. The latter is adopted by the Anglosphere, Europe, Japan and a few others,” Chomsky added, noting that Russia’ special military operation “provided the United States with a most welcome gift, driving Europe into Washington’s pocket and thus strengthening its demand for a unipolar ‘rules-based’ order.”

“There are many uncertainties as to how these tensions will be resolved,” he said.

Earlier in May, US investor Jim Rogers told Sputnik that political unions like the European Union have never survived in history and this bloc is already experiencing problems.

The renowned US academic and philosopher further told Sputnik that he is hopeful Europe will be inclined toward the vision of former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev ‘From Lisbon to Vladivostok’ before it gets worse.

“I also think there is considerable merit in Gorbachev’s proposal for a ‘common European home’ from Lisbon to Vladivostok with no military alliances and common efforts to move toward a social democratic future,” Chomsky said.

The United States chose to pursue the Atlanticist option, based on NATO, which has recently been expanded to the Indo-Pacific region in a Washington-led effort to enlist Europe in its confrontation with China, Chomsky said.

“I hope that the future will tend towards Gorbachev’s vision, before it is too late,” Chomsky added.

None of the actions taken by the successors of former US President George H.W. Bush in violation of the agreements between him and then-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev on NATO should have taken place, Chomsky said.

Chomsky noted that Bush and Gorbachev agreed that Germany should be unified and join NATO, but the military alliance should not extend “one inch to the East” of Germany.

“The documents, which are clear and unambiguous, are readily available on the website of the National Security Archive. President Bush lived up to the agreement,” Chomsky said.

However, Chomsky said Bush’s successor, Bill Clinton, violated the agreement, overriding the strong objections of high-level US diplomats and a wide range of political analysts, who warned that actions to expand NATO were reckless and provocative.

“His successors went further, also abrogating major arms control agreements that had significantly reduced the threat of war. None of these actions should have taken place, in my opinion,” Chomsky said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly called for building a united peaceful Europe from Lisbon to Vladivostok.

Last October, Putin said that he considers it possible to create a common humanitarian and economic space in Eurasia, stating that “hope dies last.”

Color Revolution in Pakistan?

by Germán Gorraiz- Political analyst
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), founded in 2001 by the Shanghai Five (China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan) and later joined by Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan, together with the ALBA countries and Iran, form the hard core of resistance to the world hegemony of the United States and Great Britain.
Consequently, the avowed aim of the US would be to dynamite the said organization, having Balochistan, Kashmir and Xinjiang as theaters of operations with the avowed aim of implementing constructive chaos following the Brzezinskinian strategy of the “clash of civilizations”. This doctrine consists of achieving the confrontation of China with Islam (about 1,500 million followers) as well as drying up its oil sources in the Islamic countries of Central Asia in order to achieve total Chinese dependence on Russian energy and in a later phase to end up confronting them with each other and finally subjugating them and implementing the new order under the Anglo-Jewish-American aegis.
China and the diversification of its energy sources
Russia and China sealed a stratospheric oil contract, one of the largest in the history of the energy industry, whereby the Russian company Rosneft (the country’s largest oil company) will supply oil to the Asian giant for 25 years for 270 billion dollars (some 205 billion euros). This, together with the gas mega-contract signed by Russia’s Gazprom and China’s CNPC, whereby Russia will supply the Asian country with 38,000 billion cubic meters of natural gas for an approximate amount of 400,000 million dollars and with a 30-year term through the Sila Sibiri (Power of Siberia) gas pipeline.
This would lay the economic foundations of the Euro-Asian Union that began its journey on January 1, 2015, as an economic and military alternative to the US project to create a Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
However, in an attempt to avoid Russian energy dependence, China is building an extensive port network, including ports, bases and observation stations in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Burma, the paradigm being the strategic port in Pakistan, Gwadar (the “gate” to the Persian Gulf), 72 kilometers from the border with Iran and some 400 kilometers from the most important oil transport corridor and very close to the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
The port was built and financed by China and is operated by the state-owned China Overseas Port Holding Company (COPHC). The region surrounding the port of Gwadar contains two thirds of the world’s oil reserves and through it passes 30 percent of the world’s oil and 80 percent of that received by China; it is on the shortest route to Asia (Silk Road), which makes it a direct threat to US global geopolitics as the US seeks to dry up China’s energy sources in Central Asia.

Color Revolution in Pakistan?
President Biden declared during an event at the Democratic Campaign Committee, the transcript of which has been published by the White House, that “Pakistan may be one of the most dangerous nations in the world because it has nuclear weapons and no cohesion”. For his part, Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, in a statement published by the Geo TV channel, expressed his rejection of Biden’s words, stating that “Pakistan rejects the statements allegedly made by the US president, which are factually incorrect and misleading”, statements intended to imply the dissatisfaction of the US with Pakistan’s current government, which as a collateral effect will bring Pakistan and China closer together.
Pakistan’s dangerous rapprochement with China has accelerated the Pentagon’s doctrine of Balkanizing of Pakistan and encouraging the independence movement in the province of Baluchistan, where the strategic port of Gwadar is located, with the avowed aim of making China’s flagship project, the “Belt and Road Initiative”, unviable.
Given the failure of the insurgency in Balochistan, the US will proceed with the implementation of a color revolution against the current Sharif government under the tutelage of the army, the real shadow power. Thus, the CIA is said to have taken advantage of the eight-day remand in custody of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, accused of an alleged corruption offense, known as the “Qadir Trust”, in order to steer the protests of the followers of his party, the PTI, the largest political force in Pakistan. The riots have been concentrated in the eastern province of Punjab, the most populated and industrialized of the country, where the Army has been deployed to control the demonstrators with the result of more than a thousand arrests and countless wounded.
The aim of such a color revolution would be to provoke the intervention of the Army and unleash a wave of repression and deaths, which could produce a schism in the monolithic Pakistani establishment or deep state, made up of the armed forces, the intelligence led by the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency (the dreaded ISI), as well as government officials and paramilitary groups. Thus, the CIA will try to use a bloody repression to provoke a coup d’état within the military establishment by the generals in favor of establishing relations with the US who, after an interregnum presided over by the military, would implement a civilian government presided over by Imran Khan which would gravitate in the US orbit.
This Government would be under the tutelage of the Army and the US would make Pakistan return to the path of the pseudo-democracies under the tutelage of the “American friend” in order to achieve, in a later phase, a confrontation between China and Islam as well as to dry up China’s sources of oil from the Islamic countries of Central Asia.

Assessment of the war in Ukraine by Igor Strelkov

Igor Strelkov is the nom de guerre of Igor Girkin

I had a conversation with a retired colonel, a former commander of a motorized rifle regiment. He seriously convinced me that everything is fine in the Ukraine war, we are advancing, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are retreating. Every day we grind thousands of Ukrainian soldiers and soon Ukraine will have no one to fight. To my question, where does he get such information from, he replied that he closely follows the television news. And the Internet? He answered – he has a computer at home, but he does not know how to use it, and most importantly, he does not want to use the enemy Internet in principle, since American propaganda is going on there around the clock.

And I sadly thought that if even the former commander of a regiment has such a mindset, then what can we say about the mood of the majority of Russian television viewers.

But such sentiments in Russian society in the conditions of the failure of the NWO are a direct path to disaster.
Marginal remarks. In the end, I will say … ..

Five short theses.

  1. SMO (Special Military Operation) is over. Since when, is not the point (my hypothesis is at the beginning of the summer of 2022, but that’s not the point). What is important is that we entered into a conflict of medium intensity with a coalition of the world’s largest states led by the United States, which set the direct task of dismantling our statehood and “disaggregating” the people of Russia, who are recognized – in all their national and sub-ethnic manifestations – as incorrigible. In the final, according to their scenario, we should not exist either as a state, or as a country, or as a single people. And they are mentally prepared for it. Today’s European totalitarianism is the second step towards the “Plan Ost 2.0”.

  2. Victory in the fight by a coalition of more than 50 states, both with elements of a hybrid war and with growing elements of direct military confrontation, with the virtual absence of allies (those that exist, with the exception of fraternal Belarus, are hypocritical and do not believe in our victory, this is, I think now obvious to everyone) requires the transfer of the state administration system, if not to the military, then to the mobilization rails. It is impossible to sit out until the systemic crisis in the United States. It was a good idea, but apparently not…. The United States is accelerating the crisis in a controlled manner and plans to get out of it by speeding up the defeat of Russia. Like under Reagan in the 1980s. One can only play ahead of the curve by creating an unexpected military-political situation for the United States.

  3. In order to win, the war must become – popular. No quotes. The political and social unity of the front and rear must be ensured. Based on a single ideological vector. Victory vector. And this means that we need to start talking to the society. It is not for society to speak. And talk to the community. Very big difference.

  4. It is impossible to solve this problem in the current state of the Russian elite. The elites obviously don’t want victory, they want a “defeat on points” and an “honorable surrender”. They do not want to face unpleasant realities. They are not capable of that. The moral and political decay of the elites is becoming the most obvious non-military risk in the current conflict for Russia. (Side note: the situation, in fact, on the “front” inspires me much more optimism than the situation in the rear). A purge of the elites is inevitable. The question is already in what mode to carry it out: from above, gradually and sparingly, or “as usual”.

  5. It is impossible to demand some kind of “mobilization” and “belt tightening” from society in the current state of the elite and the state, when even the extremely tense situation at the front did not make internal squabbles calm down. Under such conditions, attempts to tighten the “nuts” in relation to the “taxable class” will be more than counter-productive. Rather destabilizing, to put it bluntly. A sharp rise in social discipline is needed. But for everyone. This requires political will. The presence of which, alas, is becoming less and less obvious.

On this, colleagues, with your permission, I am taking a moratorium on any comments on the situation in the ATO (Anti-Terror Operation) zone and around it. For a month. But we’ll see.
The introduction of censorship must begin with the introduction of self-censorship.
And I advise you the same.

Finally, people with brains began to see what I clearly saw (and warned about) already 9 years ago …
❗️According to updated information, on May 12, 2023, during a rocket attack on the city of Luhansk, the armed formations of Ukraine used two Storm Shadow cruise missiles (English-French production) and one anti-aircraft missile ADM-160B MALD (US production).
