The Russian Direct Line is a unique exercise in direct democracy: Russian citizens call up their president and he answers their queries and solves their problems, like a Nordic konung a thousand years ago. Russia came into being as a chain of Nordic princedoms that practiced this sort of direct access to their ruler; early Russian princes and Tsars posed themselves as an instance of last appeal and immediate access. Twenty years ago, Vladimir Putin resurrected this ancient practice, and once a year every Russian can appeal to him on any subject matter at all. A man of power and authority, he can override any regulation, cut through the bureaucratic red tape, and solve any conundrum by his almost-royal grace. In the heavily bureaucratised country, such an omnipotent yet benevolent ruler provides excellent solutions to problems that should never have arisen in the first place.

The majority of questions and answers deal with everyday Russian life; with the supply of gas, with water drainage, with prices for vegetables, or communal charges. But Putin also answered questions that dealt with real world politics, and provided a few scoops for us. (Here is the full transcript)

The HMS Defender raid into Crimean waters is still fresh in memory, so Putin was asked whether this confrontation could have led to the Third World War. “No”, said Putin. “Even if we had sunk that ship, it wouldn’t put the world on the brink of a third world war because they know they could not win the war. We would also suffer, but we were in the right, and on our own ground.” This means that Russians are perfectly able to sink or capture the next NATO ship if she were to enter Russian waters.

The question of sovereign recognition does not come into the equation at all. Possession and recognition are different. The US refused to recognise (from 1940 to 1991) that the Baltic States were part of the USSR, but prudently the US Navy never tried to visit Riga port, even equipped as it was with a permit from the Latvian government-in-exile. Argentina would not recognise the British claim of sovereignty over Malvinas (Falklands) and boldly sailed within 200 miles of it. Their cruiser General Belgrano was sunk with all hands by the British RN submarine Conqueror. The law of the sea advises seafarers to pay heed to reality, not to claims however legally impressive.

Many experts are guessing that Boris Johnson sent the Defender against the will of his big uncle in the White House across the Pond. Putin disabused them of this notion. During the Direct Line, he noted that while the Defender sailed towards Crimea, a US spy plane departed from Crete to observe the Russian reaction. It was a joint US-UK operation. Putin said:

This was a joint provocation not only by the British but also by the Americans. The British ship entered our territorial waters in the afternoon, whereas earlier, at 7:30 am, a US strategic reconnaissance plane tail number 63/9792 took off from a NATO military airfield in Crete. Thus the destroyer entered [our territorial waters] in pursuit of military objectives, trying to uncover the actions of our armed forces facing a threat. With the help of the reconnaissance aircraft they were trying to figure out how we operate, and where things were located and how they function.

The raid of the Defender was followed the next day by the Dutch frigate Evertsen. She tried to approach Russian waters, but “Russian fighter jets repeatedly flew low over the ship and carried out mock attacks,” said the Dutch Ministry of Defence. The Evertsen promptly turned away from the Crimean coast. Today there are dozens of NATO (and non-NATO) ships participating in the Sea Breeze manoeuvres involving 32 countries, 5,000 troops, 32 ships, 40 aircraft and 18 special operations, and all that in the Black Sea. (Israel participated in the manoeuvres and an Israeli company had temerity to advertise its missiles ability to sink a Russian corvette – on the photo)

Putin connected this action with the Geneva Summit. I wrote about it at length here, concluding that Putin had said Nyet to nearly all of Biden’s requests. However, before the summit, Putin had already acceded to one of Biden’s requests. He withdrew Russian troops from the Ukrainian border. The Russian president provided more details during the Direct Line:

The West raised a clamour over the fact that we were conducting exercises on our own territory near the Ukrainian border. I instructed the Defence Ministry to quietly end the drills and withdraw the troops, if this is such a great concern for them. We did so. But instead of responding positively and being grateful, they trespassed on our borders.

It’s just the latest chapter in Putin’s book of Western ingratitude. In his view, based on facts, every good deed he does for the West’s benefit is unavoidably met with a nasty reward. He allowed the US transit to Afghanistan in October 2001, and in return, the US supported jihadi attacks on Russia. That’s why Putin said Nyet to Biden’s request to place US bases in ex-Soviet Central Asia.

Now we are witnessing the collapse of the house of cards the US built in Afghanistan since 2001. All the European troops have gone home: Germany, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Macedonia, Georgia, Estonia, all those countries that were forced by the US to participate in this 20-year-long occupation, have withdrawn their troops. US troops are leaving, too, as the Taliban (defeated by the US in 2001) retakes its country. Kabul regime troops are surrendering to their new Taliban leaders, just as the South Vietnamese troops surrendered to the Viet Cong in April 1975. We all recall America’s inglorious exit, with the last helicopters fleeing from the US Embassy roof. Probably soon we shall see similar episodes during the fall of Kabul.

ORDER IT NOW

The US has spent trillions defending Afghan women from Afghan men, not to mention promoting LGBTQ+. They would spend more and stay forever, but the Taliban are making it too expensive a hobby. Russians do not regret seeing them off. Pro-Western Russian experts once tried to claim that the US presence in Afghanistan would protect Russia. It was all bluff: once in power the US exported drugs to Russia and Europe, and imported jihadis from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan. They hoped their tame ISIS fighters would clash with the Taliban, but it never worked out that way. The Russians are not worried about the coming Taliban takeover: Moscow was the site of negotiations between the Taliban and the Kabul regime. Russian orientalists expect that the Taliban will inherit Afghanistan in such bad shape that it will be too busy at home to try and intervene in the Central Asian republics.

In Geneva, Biden didn’t respond to Putin’s ‘lecture’ (a term my informers used) on the Ukraine. During the Direct Line, Putin continued to expand his views on this touchy subject. He was insulted by the West when they sent their gunboats to Crimea even though he had kindly paid heed to their wishes and withdrawn his troops from the Ukrainian border. He refused to meet with the President of Ukraine because Putin feels Zelensky is a puppet of the West. In brutally direct words, Putin said: “Why should I meet with [President] Zelensky since he has passed management of his country into foreign hands? The main issues concerning Ukraine are not decided in Kiev but in Washington and, partly, in Berlin and Paris. What is there to talk about?”

Putin thinks the Ukraine has lost its independence. This is very different from considering it a hostile sovereign state. Ukrainians are also Russians, Putin said, like European Jews and Ethiopian Jews are still Jews. The Russian people were historically divided into Small Russians, Great Russians and White Russians; yet still all three branches belong to the same tree. Putin said the Western attempts to establish a military presence in the Ukraine is a direct threat to Russia. While the Ukrainians are brothers, the present Ukrainian authorities are a colonial administration. With these statements, a Russian recovery of the Ukraine is suddenly back on the table. I could not believe my own ears, for in 2014 Putin might have taken the Ukraine back effortlessly, but he didn’t. And now, when it would be hard, he seemingly implied it will happen, if the West attempts to establish a military base in the Ukraine, or just pushes Russia a little too hard.

Naval trespassing could provide the trigger. The British and American navies intend to raise their flags at Crimea before going to the South China Sea to wave their flags at the Chinese. There is a difference. Each nation has its own national customs. The Chinese issued hundreds of warnings to the US before they became friends. The Chinese are famous for their warnings. But the Russians are known for their fighting spirit and readiness to shoot.

It would be nice if the recent incident of the Defender would be the last. But this is hard to believe. Russia will certainly find the answer and the answer may be asymmetrical. It may be much more than sinking a destroyer at Cape Fiolent. It could be the retrieval of the Ukraine.

Covid passions

As I reported here, while Putin was in Geneva, Moscow Mayor Mr Sobyanin declared a state of mass vaccination in his city, and a wave of Internet bots opened an intensive campaign of intimidation against “vaccine hesitant” citizens. Moscow reinstituted QR codes for vaccinated citizens to enter restaurants; people were fired for refusing to vaccinate. This subject was the first one brought up in Putin’s Direct Line. The President reaffirmed the vaccination is not mandatory in Russia. However, some people in certain positions would have to vaccinate – or leave. It should be decided locally, in every region. This is good, though perhaps not good enough: many people hoped that Putin would tell Sobyanin explicitly to cool off. He did not, but his declaration that nobody should be forced to vaccinate hopefully will calm spirits a bit.

In the autumn, Russia goes for parliamentary elections, and this subject is likely to become important. While the pro-Western opposition of Navalny and company are in favour of mandatory vaccination (they just want Russia to buy Western vaccines), the Communist opposition (it is the biggest opposition party in the land) stands for voluntary vaccination, no lockdowns, and no distant learning. They may benefit from this position.

A popular leftist politician Mr Kurginyan created a video talk that was immediately removed by YouTube but is still available on Vimeo. He speaks against enforced vaccination, for in his view it is likely to cause trouble for the government and undermine Russia’s stability before the elections. He called upon Putin to refrain from forcing people to vaccinate, provided the nature of the virus is still obscure. It is an American-made bioweapon, he said, and perhaps this bioweapon gets stronger with American vaccines. Delta and other sorts of Covid are perhaps the result of its interaction with vaccines. It is a plausible idea: in Israel, the vaccinated suffer, get ill and die.

During his Direct Line, President Putin refused to speak of the virus origin. Many Russian politicians accept Ron Unz’s thesis that the virus is a US-made bioweapon. Putin didn’t argue for or against; he said that the question of virus origin should be treated separately from the question of dealing with it. For the first time ever, Putin said that he vaccinated with Sputnik-V, because, he added, this is the vaccine Russian soldiers are vaccinated with, and he is their Commander-in-Chief. However, he noted that there are four Russian vaccines, and all of them are good.

Putin also presented the strongest argument against ‘Virus is a Hoax’ idea. He said:

I heard: that there is nothing at all, in reality there is no epidemic. When you tell them that this is happening all over the world, they reply: “Right, country leaders have come into collusion.” Do they have any idea of what is happening in the world, of the contradictions that are plaguing today’s world, where all leaders allegedly upped and conspired with each other? It is absolute rubbish.

It is indeed a strong argument: is it possible to imagine a collusion of Kim Jong-un and Khamenei with Netanyahu and Biden? President Putin is perfectly able to enter some agreement, but there are states and leaders who would never do. What would say our Mike Whitney? Would they all agree to vaccine that can kill their citizens?

ORDER IT NOW

Indeed, Russians have begun to vaccinate, though not as much as in the West. More people contemplate why there is such a push for vaccination. Apparently, a common explanation is that the Russian vaccine was produced in massive quantities and the vaccines have to be used. Europe is not open to Russian (or Indian, or Chinese) vaccines. There is a big African market; it is said that Russians would be able to sell their vaccines to Africa; but who will pay for that?

It seems that the IMF has some ideas. They plan to issue a $650 billion SDR loan to poor countries to pay for vaccines. This loan can also be used for paying off old loans; lands and assets will be taken for collateral. The plan is supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, the same organisation that planned for Covid in 2010. If it works out, the richest folk will profit immensely from the pandemic; the loans will be in the hands of the IMF, and the US will unload its debts onto the other member states. The biggest rip-off of the pandemic is still ahead of us; it will be a virtuoso of complexity; anyone not an expert in SDR and IMF will not even understand they are being screwed. I hear that many people are now discussing how to deal with this issue; there are some plans, but nothing public yet.

The Russian supply of the vaccines to Africa could be paid off by an IMF loan. This will be in line with Putin’s usual modus operandi: conform to the existing paradigm, roll with the punches and pull in as much for Russia as you can. Currently there seems to be only one game in town, one that is played by the Covid masters, big pharma, the digital giants, the IMF and orchestrated by the Rockefeller foundation. Putin does not want to fight against this extraordinary force; he thinks Russia can manage within the rules they set. He will play along until they unveil a power grab, or any rough game, but even then Russia appears to be ready. The West should deal with its own problems, starting with the digital giants; it won’t be easy, as we learn from the recent case where Judge Hinkle ruled that Facebook and Microsoft should enjoy their God-given right to block politicians they do not like. It won’t be easy, and spending our resources threatening Putin and Xi won’t help us get the job done.

  11. I suspect world leaders and their subservient goons, loyalists, tribes and globalist psychopaths have been given a B12 injection instead of an actual C19 vaccine for public PR validation. It’s all a big fat cover for public vaccinations primary purpose.
    My tea leafs are telling me something more sinister is in the works. Sovereign provocations with warships and bombers, troop movements, gun confiscations, human migration displacement of indigenous people, super drugs, ad nausea. It’s looking more each day as a lead up to a horrific extinction event the world has only experienced millions of years ago.

    Great Article – Ukrainians are stuck into taking Phyzer jabs. They are being forced or at least are told that they can Not get or use Sputnik V inside Ukraine. This was a conversation yesterday with a close friend and in laws that live near Zaporozhia, UA. They told us – they have No choice – sound familiar USA, EU, Britain …? Of course the propaganda and programming hate for Russia is going 24/7 also.

    My only hope for them is to deny taking the poison or maybe Phyzer will get really greedy and fill their syringes with a saline solution, in order to cut costs and make more blood money.
    Another problem is in those bioweapons labs in Ukraine – what new virus are they planning. Kyiv will most definitely kill off as many pensioners as they can, since they already made a deal with the Devil Bankers themselves – the IMF. I can see the Babylonian Talmud bitch, Cookies Nuland’s hands in all of this – once again.

    “Ukrainians are also Russians, Putin said, like European Jews and Ethiopian Jews are still Jews”.
    Perhaps with this quote, we glimpse the masters that Putin ultimately serves, i.e. the Khazar tribe. The dirty little secret is, of course, that the Ashkenazi have about the same connection to the historical Hebrews, as do the native peoples of the Amazon Basin, i.e. zilch. The vast majority of people who identify as Jews do not believe or practice the religion, so if they are not Jews by confession, and are certainly not Jews by ethnicity, in what way can they possibly be described as Jews? Is an atheist Irishman a Catholic just because his ancestors were Catholic.
    Perhaps the most authoritative treatment of this subject is Shlomo Sand’s The Invention of the Jewish People.
    This point about the origins and claims of the Ashkenazi is of fundamental importance. Ask yourself this question: Do the Rothschilds belong to the same religion as Mary and Joseph?
    This is identity theft of the highest order, using the term “Jew” as the mask.
    I note that this is one issue that even the contributors to this webzine hardly ever touch on. What does Mr Unz, a man of Khazar stock, say to it? Has he read Professor Sand’s book (he seems to have read every other one)? Or is the whole Unz review nothing more than a highly sophisticated tag and trace operation?
    The silence is deafening.

    We have been warned by Christ about the nature of the enemy: those who say they are Jews, but are not Jews.
    Revelations 2:9
    “I know thy tribulation and thy poverty, but thou art rich: and thou art blasphemed by them
    that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
    Revelations 3:9
    “Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do
    lie. Behold, I will make them to come and adore before thy feet. And they shall know that
    I have loved thee.”

  17. Putin didn’t ” talk to the nation” more like talked at them!

    He obviously doesn’t even know his own history and how the Soviets agreed to innocent passage after the 1988 Black sea incident with American warships,so basically he’s blathering and belching BS because he’s afraid of the west,oh plus he’s totally screwed up over covid and now will vaccinate Russian citizens against their will, totalitarianism is back on the menu folks 😉,

    Not that it means much as Russian citizens are used to this sort of behaviour they’re already forging covid certificates,the black market always wins in bent places like Russia,thats why its such a criminal cess pit,anyway if Putin’s propaganda hadn’t worked so well about covid conspiracies he wouldn’t need to enforce vaccination would he! Basically a massive own goal,they produce sputnk and no [email protected]#ker in Russia wants it 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    Putin is basically living in a world of propaganda,he’s actually the most dangerous and delusional cretin on this planet,his plans are blowing up in his fat rubber face,and he just keeps doubling down,meanwhile in the real world Russian perma frost is melting at an accelerating rate and will cost the Russian economy so much to put right that they’ll be no more money for hypersonic wizbangs, Putler will soon have a choice,spend money on his dumb army or save his oil and gas infrastructure which is currently sinking into a mush

    So Russia and Putin are basically living on borrowed time,forget all this feel good blather about how fantastic they are,oh,and wait till this autumn after the next fake election,more trouble there, although Putler will fix the results just like Crimea,wink,wink 😝

    If you want to see the future of Russia,well it already exists,its basically a mashup between Belarus,Ukraine and North Korea no wonder the brain drain is full steam ahead,as there’s really no future in Russia,over and out 😂

    I have no idea how many are dying across the planet from Sputnik V, but why would all these “democratically elected” “leaders” of these powerful western nations allow their citizens to be duped into taking blood/brain barrier crossing injections containing a patented nanoparticle called Luciferaise? Little countries across the planet are under intense pressure from the global media and UN organizations like WHO to follow the example of the “advanced” western nations. If they don’t follow the lead of the likes of Macron, Trudeau, Johnson or Merkel then they end up dead like the president of Tanzania or ostracized like Bolsonero or Lukshenko.

    There is definitely a world wide agenda to push the WEF/Davos “great reset” agenda. Putin is avoiding meeting this challenge head on and the evidence keeps on building that he is in on it too.

    There need not be a collusion among the leaders of the world to abide by the dictates of the PTB. Just look at the fate of those leaders that resisted the mass vaccination project; presidents of Burundi and Tanzania both dead and the president of Belarus almost toppled if it wasn’t for Putin’s backing. However, in order to make a long story short, one should open the deagle.com population projections for 2025 and it might open one’s eye to some gruesome statistics which tells us that the leaders who love their people will be spared the scourge of the diabolical plans in store for the world’s population. Just notice also that White Western nations will bear the brunt of the cull.

    Putin is a good strategist but an excellent tactician. He was recommended by Boris Berezovsky to his Rothschild masters as their next Yeltsin and Berezovsky was the first crooked oligarch to get booted out of Russia by Putin who was not willing to play second fiddle to the Russian oligarchy. Ever since, Putin has been facing a very subtle assault on the economic, media and diplomatic fronts against the the political middlemen of the Western elites. The latest British destroyer trespassing on the maritime territorial waters of Crimea is but one provocation against Putin which will surely be followed by more flagrant and dangerous ones. Will the Putin defensive and cooperative approach work in Russia’s favour? I personally doubt it as the Western powers will not yield until they see a very threatening response from the Russo-Chinese alliance as the West throughout history has proven to understand only the language of power. But maybe Putin is biding his time while seeing the West engage in gradual suicide.

    I’d like to hear you weigh in on why Putin doesn’t shut down Western social media.

    In fact, he explicitly said that he would not do anything about their malign influence in Russia.

    Why does he protect big western tech like this? It’s absurd.

    Well, there is a difference in Russia. Chabbad or any other Jewish Supremacist group can not do what ever they want in Russia. Meanwhile in the US, Jewish Supremacist Neocons have been at the Top of power in US Congress, White House and Media for over 3o years.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-chabad-rabbi-faces-deportation-from-russia/

    The Chabad-affiliated Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia condemned the move. Boruch Gorin, a federation spokesman, told the French news agency AFP that this was “far from an isolated incident.” He added that at least seven rabbis have been forced to leave Russia in recent years for alleged immigration violations.

    Gorin said it was “an attempt to establish control” on Jewish communities in Russia, which he said are serviced by some 70 rabbis, of whom half are foreign.

    I heard: that there is nothing at all, in reality there is no epidemic. When you tell them that this is happening all over the world, they reply: “Right, country leaders have come into collusion.” Do they have any idea of what is happening in the world, of the contradictions that are plaguing today’s world, where all leaders allegedly upped and conspired with each other? It is absolute rubbish.

    This is a straw man. Putin could have just as easily waxed on about the fear-mongering predictions that have proved off by orders of magnitude. Or the still in motion statistical revise and extend, at least in the US.

    The irony is that leaders and governments collude all the time whether they are acting in their national interest or not. Take an easy one. The US and Iran colluded to make Gaddafi/Libya the dirty dog for their Vincennes/Lockerbie monkey business.

    Thank you, Mr Shamir, for mentioning just one (relatively small) way in which Jewish influence in USA has by now all but wrecked that unfortunate country.

    Jewish feminism has ruined countless lives, mainly those of our lovely ladies, with its pernicious dogmas. Yet Jews still apparently celebrate it as a “contribution” to western life and morals (with other poisonous Jewish inputs). I am personally hoping that as knowledge spreads of just how rancid so much Jewish influences have been/are, not only or even mainly in Palestine, that this will not lead to a global for-real “holocaust” or Final Solution … I truly am hoping that sense will prevail on both sides — because it really does seem to be two sides in the world — Jews and non-Jews.
    This seems a situation that needs defused …

    What do Putin and Stalin have in common? Aside from Putin’s obsessive worship of uncle joe, there is a common obsession with offensive weapons that threaten the west. Sean McMeekin’s book “Stalin’s War” has finally lifted the cover off of Stalin’s preparation to conquer all of Europe with the massively lopsided armor of the Red Russian Rapist Army Steamroller. Today, Stalin’s modern mini-me named Vlad Putin has raced to arm Russia with a massively lopsided nuclear weapons arsenal that threatens all of Europe precisely as Stalin did on the even of Operation Barbarossa in June of 1941.

    Stalin was unprepared when Hitler made is “first strike”, but McMeekin has proved that this attack never would have come if not for Stalin’s typical Russian macho “muh thousands of tanks”. Today it is Putin’s “muh nuclear torpedoes and hypersonic missiles”.

    DEATH FROM THE DEEP Putin’s ‘city killer’ 604ft submarine packed with nuke drones capable of triggering tsunami sets sail for the first time

    “Dr Kaushal said: “The Belgorod is large enough to act as a mother ship for a unique set of smaller vessels which have deep-diving capabilities and the ability to tamper with undersea infrastructure.

    “It’s well equipped for sabotage and clandestine operations. Its Poseidon nuclear torpedoes could also be a very effective means of attacking an aircraft carrier in wartime – one against which at present no defence exists.””

    Make no mistake, this Belgorod is an offensive weapon just as the overwhelming numbers of KV-1 and T34’s were in 1941.

    Joe Stalin convinced the world with his lie that unlike Trotsky all he wanted was “Socialism in One Country”. McKeeken devastates this fallacy even if the Putin fanboi’s deny it. But Putin is merely recreating the same conditions on the ground that Stalin did in 1941. If a preemptive strike comes it will be because of Putin’s obsession with nuclear hegemony even when he knows no one can touch Russia when it comes to conventional weapons.

He was an Israeli asset that gained control of the resource rich Congo after the French and Belgians had raped it during the colonial era. Now he was the front man for the new rapists coming from UK and USA. And for his services, he was given a few billion dollars in Swiss accounts and free reign to carry out his psychotic brutalities on his own people for pleasure. Yet the vast benefits of his rule accrued to the so called Judeo-Christians, a euphemism for the thieving elites backed by the IMF and the World Bank.

    Of course, this time around, the same grifters will finish the job of taking all resources while saddling the populations with enormous debt which can’t be repaid insuring slavery in perpetuity.

    That is possible.

    However, “Scam for Money” in essence is usury, and we know who historically are the usurers and who controls money power. The problem is that even someone like Putin cannot take on money power/Judaism alone. This is like claiming that Trump defeated Hillary on his own. Trump never could have accomplished this without some elements of Jewish Power, including Sheldon Adelson, covering his back.

    There is ample evidence that Putin has many Jewish allies even if he is not a complete Zionist stooge. He has is own private Rabbi and is constantly photographed with Chabbad Lubbowitz. He has been photographed in his Kippa grovelling at the “wailing wall”. He even slobbered all over his jewish owners at the Holocaust celebration.

    So I think the explanation that he is a puppet like all the rest fits observed reality better. Merkel, Macron, Johnson, Draghi, Van der Leyen, Biden, Trump, even Xi and Medvedev all dance to the chicken swinging pipers. Do you really think that Putin is the only exception?

    Being part of the system and having current elite and leadership capitals, real estate in the West and kids relatives being citizens of the western countries is one of the reasons. Current regime is also capitalistic hence risk averse because shooting is bad for their business which is mostly peddling resources and other products which are of interest abroad.

    If the Russians are smart then any so called “vaccine” they push is simply a placebo.

    They’ve got three.
    One is the AstraZeneca/Johnson tech (Sputnik), and people do tend to “go under” for a day or two with flu symptoms after the jab.
    The second produces almost no symptoms (EpiVac), and this is the “placebo”, according to the Russian chans.
    The third one is like the Chinese one–dead virus (CoviVac). In the middle between the two, symptom-wise.

    So if you “believe science” in the modern western sense, you try to organize yourself a Sputnik, if you want a “trad vax” you go for CoviVac, and if you just want something harmless to for example get your boss off your back, you go for EpiVac.

    I agree with you partly : the truth is that the infamous mRNA vaccine is not the same product being injected for all individual who ask for it. Some do receive poisons, other receive rather near-placebos (like most flu vaccines are as their action range and time is more than limited) other also receive psychiatric drugs and not for the same effect for all social classes. The elites do take Pfizer injections but they have been informed they will receive a far more efficient immunizer against many pathogens, while plane pilots that have to submit to great replacement get genetic sabotage injections. You cannot get one of those vaccines without giving your whole identity. Receiving Pfizer on an anonymous basis is forbidden by law everywhere.

To modern-day Jews, therefore, attending synagogue and abstaining from eating bacon is very much secondary. The primary thing that defines them as Jews is their implacable hostility to Christ and, by extension, to Christians. And by that standard the average un-synagogued Jew is faithful indeed. Every Jew is Judas. To them, as to him, bodily and spiritual death is preferable to the Truth.

    Given your handle, you must understand that wars are the sole domain of countries and their leaders start them or become entangled in them.

    Every US president in my lifetime has been a POS, either corrupt like Bush and Clinton or ineffective like Trump and Carter. None of them were serious about ending any of the wars and most of them were complicit in starting them.

    As for Putin, he reacts to outside pressure mostly from the US. However, what is his game plan in Syria? Why has he not told Israel that their raids into Syria are over and back it up with publicly available threats? Why has he fooled around in Syria for years but never seems to accomplish much. He’s just another opportunist sticking his nose in where he figures he can make a buck without actually solving the problem. Another POS.

    The US military wants endless half assed wars to use up expensive equipment for their war profiteer corporate buddies and for their huge budgets. Putin is essentially doing the same thing. He’s making a profit on a simmering conflict but doesn’t appear to want to do anything to actually terminate it.

    Catholics don’t DO prophecy.

    Many of the freaky evangelical distortions of Christianity were the product of British Isles.


    Just finished viewing and discussing a Great Courses overview of Russian Culture: Russia was nearly ALWAYS authoritarian and in that epoch of always authoritarian the monarch was always revered as the land’s benevolent patriarch — even when said monarch/patriarch was under numerous (and ultimately successful) assassination threats, as was Alexander. Monarchs could impose burdensome constraints on the people, but still they honored him.

    Maybe the way Russians reacted to their authoritarian leaders is what the Frankfurt Schoolers had in mind in The Authoritarian Personality.
    Italy is vastly different (and more complex — i.e. Northern Italy (Alta Italia) and Southern Italy (Mezzogiorno) might as well be two different nations), and IMO Germany (before WWII) and France also are less reverential toward their leaders.

    PS these distinctions are one more reason why “White” as a category is worse than useless, it’s harmful.

    Here are other writers observing a different reality than you:

    https://russia-insider.com/en/why-putins-christian-faith-most-likely-authentic/ri25168

    It is common to condemn Putin for being a “KGB agent.” the truth is that the security services of any nation attract nationalists. Few doctrinaire Marxists existed in the USSR. This is the exclusive domain of capitalist universities. Putin has condemned Marxism and communism. He has stated that the fall of the USSR was a great “catastrophe.” Indeed it was: Solzhenitsyn said the same. The destruction of the Soviet economy in a few years and its liquidation into the bank accounts of a few Jewish oligarchs is well known. The USSR was preferable to the 1990s in Russia. The life expectancy of the Russian male went down to under 60 years.


    To be a career man of any kind in the USSR, one had to join the party. Spouting a few slogans that no one believed is a minor price to pay for the ability to feed one’s family. Putin clearly (albeit secretly) rejected the party’s atheism. He was and is a Russian nationalist. My book, Russian Populist: The Political Thought of Vladimir Putin (TBR Press, 2012) shows this at great length. I’ve translated some speeches and writings that have not seen the light of day in the west. The revelations of Putin’s secret baptism make sense out of his post-soviet career and ideological development.

    If you actually listen to Putin’s speeches (including the ones “not seen the light of day”) and then observe his actions, you cannot believe he is in league with Jewish “finance international;” finance types (such as the Harvard Boyeeez) who were the agents for privatizing destruction of Russia in the 90’s.

    Why Russia is in Syria? Globo Homo was funding a Takfiri mercenary army using recycled Petro-Dollars from Qatar and Saudi. The U.S. air force was running air cover. There was both an air force and a ground force. Globo Homo (((finance))) was working hand in glove with radical Islam.

    Qatar especially wanted to monetize gas from the world’s largest oil field – the South Pars, rather than have Iran monetize the gas by selling it in Euro’s.

    https://www.nsenergybusiness.com/projects/south-pars-gas-field-persian-gulf-iran/

    Takfiri “good terrorists” army was part of pipeline wars, and intended to deny Russia hard currency, and ultimately use Islam as a wedge to destabilize both Russia and China.

    Atlantacists (globo-homo) are desperate to prevent Mackinder’s world island of “Eurasia” from forming. Atlantacists are also desperate to keep the Petrodollar System from collapsing.

    Also, there is a religious element in Syria, especially now that Russian Federation is recapitulating Symphony of Church and State from Byzantium.

    https://english.alarabiya.net/News/middle-east/2015/09/30/Church-says-Russia-fighting-holy-battle-in-Syria

    The Patriarch, who often weighs in on political matters in support of the Kremlin, said armed intervention was necessary since “the political process has not led to any noticeable improvement in the lives of innocent people, and they need military protection.”

    He cited the suffering of Christians in the region, the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches, adding that Muslims “are suffering no less.”

    Putin’s “cornered rat” story, and the push too hard on the spring story, are elements of his Judo techniques. He doesn’t corner rats, and he doesn’t push too hard on the spring lest it snap back.

    Ishamir is also noting this Putin Judo tendency.

    This will be in line with Putin’s usual modus operandi: conform to the existing paradigm, roll with the punches and pull in as much for Russia as you can.

    Other world leaders would be wise to follow Putin’s example, and not be a “hot head,” slowly chip away at the enemy and throw Judo moves.

    The game plan for Syria obviously worked out to Russia’s benefit. Russia used a very small military force, and spent minimal amounts of national budget, to then leverage an advantageous position in the middle east, including access to Khmeimim air base in Latakia.

    “Putin is basically living in a world of propaganda” – Not sure about Putin but this is true for the majority of Russians. Sputnik V is a perfect example of 21th century Potemkin village.

    Russia has no capacity to produce sufficient amount of vaccine to meet its grandiose promises that were made in 2020. In December 2020 several planeloads of vaccine from South Korea were brought to Moscow because there was not enough Russian produced vaccines and the upper echelons of the entitled elite just like the entitled elites everywhere in the world wanted to be vaccinated as soon as possible. By the end of May 2021 Russia produced about 30 million (two dose kits) out of which about half was exported, so there was enough to vaccinate only 10% of Russia’s population.

    Kremlin media in 2020 launched propaganda campaign meant to undermine western vaccines concentrating on bad side effects and giving platform to silly anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories, which probably originated from FSB/GRU propaganda branches anyway. The end result was that Russians lost faith in vaccines and since majority of Russians believe that western products are incomparable better than whatever Russia can produce they got very skeptical about Sputnik. After all if Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca are that bad as the media (and various Israel Shamirs and Mike Whitney clones in Russia) say then Sputnik must be even worse.

    So Kremlin propaganda could direct the blame against ordinary Russians that they were ignorant, obscurantist muzhiks, just like Bolsheviks when they were starving peasants to death, for not vaccinating while it was exactly what Kremlin wanted because they did not have enough vaccines. They created a false image of vaccine surplus that was infinitesimally shallow to hide the lack of industrial capacity to produce vaccines and to be able to meet their obligation and promises to send vaccines abroad which again shows that propaganda for Kremlin is more important than the reality and propaganda for the fellow travelers in the West takes precedence. The image of Russia as the savior of the world was more important than saving Russian lives. One has to admit it was a pretty clever manipulation that even a savvy person like Karlin did not see through or perhaps he just preferred to be a part of Kremlin propaganda of demeaning and besmirching ordinary Russians for obscurantism rather than be the one who would expose Kremlin propaganda.

    The number of Covid-19 deaths in Russia were counted down by factor of 4 or more. The excess deaths statistics indicated that almost 500,000 Russians died of covid and covid related conditions. This puts Russia among the highest per capita death rates. But from Kremlin perspective which is utterly cynical this could have been a positive process that Kremlin did not want to impede as long as they could cover it up. First they got much closer to the herd immunity threshold than any other country in the world except for Ecuador. At least 35% of Russians are sero-positive (at IFR=1%) and to large degree immune to covid and its new strains. Second, it was like Nazi euthanasia Action T4 where the “useless eaters” were eliminated who were perceived as burden to society. Putin fed the Moloch of Propaganda with the corpses of old Russian people.

    Never underestimate the mendacity of Kremlin propaganda and its propagandists best exemplified by Israel Shamir.

    Why Russia is in Syria? – Because Netanyahu gave Putin green light to stop insurgency in Syria that w/o sufficient engagement of the US, that Obama refused, would lead to occupation of Syria by Turkey. Israel does not want to have border with Turkey, it wants destabilized weak Syria where it can play a role of keeping the destabilization by stoking the ethnic and religious strife forever. Russians are in to keep Turkey out and Iran forces in Syria under control.

    NB: Rubbing Obama’s nose was an important psychological factor in Netanyahu’s decision to bring Russians in as Obama was impeding Netanyahu plans from the day one of his presidency to the last day of his presidency when he refused to veto anti-Israel resolution in the UN which was unprecedented. This forced Netanyahu to go through Trump and Flynn to plead with Russians to delay the vote in the UN as Russians refused to veto it. This lead to destroying Flynn and severely weakened Trump presidency as the fact the Trump future administration was engaged in secret shenanigans with Russians was proven except the cause of it being Netanyahu and Israel was not revealed by media.

    Oil, pipelines and euros are secondary benefits not objectives just like organized and well planned looting of Iraq museums was not a chief objective and cause of 2003 war against Iraq. .

    I wrote before about the three tiers of narrative in the context of Iraq war:

    The narratives come in three tiers: (1) True cause, (2) Justification for insiders and the curious and (3) Rationalizations for the masses.

    The tier (3) is for the masses like for example that 2003 Iraq war was about weapons of mass destruction and bringing democracy to the Middle East.

    The tier (2) is for some insiders who need rational reasons and for the curious who do not believe media. In case of the war with Iraq the tier (2) narrative would be about oil and Saddam Hussain switching to euros from dollars. This narrative is for business people and higher military and for the curious who usually stop at this level. Various conspiracy sites let the curious get (2) but they also prevent them going to the tier (1).

    And the tier (1) is the true cause that may seem totally irrational, outrageous and abhorrent. In the case of the 2003 Iraq war it was to destroy Iraq and turn it into a non functioning state full of chaos where sectarian and political strife is promoted and can be easily manipulated for ever by supporting always the weaker side. This was a part of the Yinon Plan to destroy all semi-secular Arab states in Israel’s vicinity which were Iraq, Syria and Libya. Israel prefers chaos and weak entities rather than functioning state that has industry, educational system and capable military and well defined leadership that has a political doctrine. One mays say that the tier (1) is hidden and protected by layers of tiers (3) and (2) because it is a pure evil.

    Good example of minor 2nd order effects is looting of Iraq antiquity museums:

    The war on Iraq in 2003 was not waged on the behalf of antiquity art dealers but the Empire allowed the art dealers do a very organized and thorough looting operation of Iraq museums within hours of liberation and looked the other way when it was happening and when the art pieces were smuggled abroad. By being so magnanimous to the art dealers and collectors the Empire enhanced its constituency among them. But Iraq art collections were not the reason for the war. Looting was a minor part of the objective to destroy Iraq.

    But we also know that the Russian CB is still a part of the BIS spiderweb of Rothschild controlled central banks.

    Yes it is. Putin has not gone after the Atlantacists to my satisfaction either. There is a fifth column in Russia that Putin has allowed to remain, and expose themselves.

    There is a little bit of Judo going on with buying up Russian mined gold, and then stuffing it into the Bank of Russia as reserves.

    Russia was stuffing gold into the central bank even when it was a Tier 3 asset as it prevented western bear raids (shorting of the ruble) post sanctions. Heavy sanctions were levied on Russia especially after Crimea rejoined Russia in a referendum.

    Now gold is being converted to a Tier 1 asset, which benefits the countries that have been stacking and stuffing (stuffing into reserves).

    With regards to the dollar, Russia is signaling now they want to exit it completely – this as of today:

    https://mynews.one/its-official-russia-to-exit-u-s-dollar-other-countries-likely-to-follow/

    The author of the link above thinks that Putin is playing along with the Bilderberg types. I think of it like railroad tracks running in parallel. Sometimes the trains are going the same direction. The destruction of the dollar is in Russia’s interest, especially after dollar was weaponized and used as a finance weapon against Russia.

    When Hitler went along with Havarra it was trains running in parallel with Zionism.

    Putin is a Russian nationalist playing in a rough neighborhood. It is hard to read the tea leaves though, as things are often not clear until time has passed.

    The announcement (to exit dollar) was right after the Bilderberger meeting, which is suspicious, but who knows what was said.

    Paul Craig Roberts would probably agree with you. PCR recommends Russia make a formal defense alliance with China and invade Ukraine.

    Putin just doesn’t play that way. He really means it when he says he won’t push on the spring too hard, or corner the rat.

    In other words, he bides his time, and then sometimes acts swiftly. For example, the recent build up of troops on the border near Ukraine was done practically overnight.

    If he wanted to help clean up the ME, he would put his forces and nukes into Iran and hang out a shingle that says ‘Don’t fuck with me’.

    He’s said that numerous times, diplomatically, in words and actions – did something change after Crimea? Yeah… the West doubled down, new provocations, etc. Putin and Lavrov keep repeating “the West doesn’t learn”… but the Western leaders don’t hear either. Nukes are no joke and he is being extremely wise by not making it a loud political issue, he’d be in trap if he did.

    He could bomb the hell out of the loonies in Syria and put better missile defense systems there.

    Large civilian losses are bad policy in a region that has always been quite unstable. Mass bombing campaigns are also risky, expensive and do not produce better results than Putin’s surgical strikes on targets confirmed by solid intelligence, there isn’t a single reason to do them. There is a saying in Russia “The East is a subtle business”, indeed.

    He could call on the UN to declare the US actions as war crimes and call for all living US presidents to be hung along with their commanders.

    This is lunacy, for sure, but I catch your drift. Putin could be more vocal on certain issues and take a more differential approach toward the different EU countries. However, trading political influence with other Euro powers, Germany in particular, is a long standing Russian tradition, Putin didn’t invent it and he considers it natural. I’m not sure it’s that good but my knowledge only goes so far. We shall see.

    An advanced S-300 or S-400 system could paint every F-16 as it took off from Israel. This would be a red line for Israel and would bring in Uncle Shmuel.

    Syria (and by extension Russia) has been allowing Israel to overfly her territory and bomb Hezbollah installations.

    It’s puzzling – why would you allow a foreign power to bomb your territory, especially if you have S-300’s. The answer must be that Syria and Russia are holding back on purpose for reasons only known to them. I can speculate, in that they don’t want to give away military capability unless the war goes hot.

    Think about the situation now, as opposed to the 90’s. Russia’s military has been modernized; Military physical fitness is up by 30% (better nutrition?); Foreign exchange is in good shape; the economy is modernizing; food production is up – so Russia is no longer food insecure; oil can be extracted at prices that Saudi cannot compete with; the Artic route is opening up; national economy is more diversified thanks to the western sanctions; Yamal LNG will be fueling Asia; Nordstream will be fueling Europe.

    I suspect world leaders and their subservient goons, loyalists, tribes and globalist psychopaths have been given a B12 injection instead of an actual C19 vaccine for public PR validation.

    Your suspicion is well-founded, Kimosabe.

    It was with great mirth and laughter that in Australia, one day after being injected live on national television with the Astrazeneca “vaccine” (promoted as “the gift of life”), Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

    Hey Mefobills-

    Thanks for the reply, always a pleasure to hear from you.

    I was obviously unaware that it was the PEG that was causing the damage (I thought the PEG was the cause of allergic reaction in susceptible folks, but did not know it was the the part that accumulates in the ovaries.) Thanks for the update.

    Here is the quote from a very recent SOTT article that lead me astray:

    “On top of this, there is a Japanese study Brindle received through a Freedom of Information Request that shows that vaccine material travels from the injection site to collect in large concentrations in multiple organ systems including the spleen, bone marrow, liver, adrenal glands and — in “quite high concentrations” — in the ovaries.”

    The SOTT article is focused exclusively on the spike proteins as being the ‘toxic’ portion of the mRNA jab, although you’re 100% correct that the PEG is also a major cause of concern. Here is the SOTT article: https://www.sott.net/article/454813-Objective-Health-The-Spike-Protein-is-Toxic

    I guess I read too much into the quoted material and just assumed from the title they were referring to the spike proteins and not the PEG shell (I must admit, I didn’t watch the video as I have been very busy recently). My mistake. Again, thanks for the update. Duly noted and appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I respect your moral integrity but I say with lots of certainty that had it not been for Putin’s meddling in the Syrian conflict, the globalist plan of shredding the Middle East to pieces for the sake of greater Israel would well on its way to concretise. That would have entailed the exodus of all the remaining Christians of the Middle East, just like Iraqi Christians, towards a West that is already weary and fatigued of the influx of refugees.

    It is easy for you and me and any other side watcher to theorise about the best and most decent course of action. As someone who has lived long enough in the Middle East, I often felt frustrated that the Israelis could carry their raids into Syria from under the nose of the highly capable Russian airforce with impunity. But then state stewardship and geopolitics were never a matter of moral idealism and they should not be the mission of one country when the majority of the world does not abide by them. Patience, a strong point of Putin, may make up for the failure, because of the lack of it, of the one German leader who sought to chase the devils out of Valhalla. And making a truly enlightened opinion about Putin being another politician or a great statesman will require many years after he is out of power. Mebofills is right in his dispassionate assessment of Putin. There was a time that my dearest wish was to see the ‘ cold blooded ruthless dictator’ Hafez Al Assad ( father of the incumbent Bashar Al Assad) die; it was a few years after his passing away that I noticed that he was the greatest statement that the Middle East has known in centuries.

    That it is an interesting article, but it is a very weak on supporting evidence. Coming from Linked-In does not help much with credibility.

    It is true that Putin went after Khordokovsky, and I have little doubt that Khordokovsky was a Rothschilds stooge, and the Rothschilds had control of the Baku oil up until the revolution, and likely all through the existence USSR as well. But the article doesn’t prove that Putin took on the Rothschilds.

    It’s good to read that someone else has pondered the Russian intervention in Syria. While you see the Turkish angle as the main reason for Israel giving the green light to Russia to intervene I thought the Israelis were becoming concerned that an ISIS-Jihadist Syria and Iraq might, instead of then smashing Hezbollah, link up with them and become a very serious threat. Probably there is substance to both arguments but I think your argument about the threat of Turkey is the stronger one.

    Here is the real deal about Chabbad in Russia. It does not have free will to do anything it wants in Russia like Jewish Supremacist groups in the US can do. This is from a Chabad website.

    https://chabadinfo.com/news/another-shliach-kicked-out-of-russia/

    Real extremists are targeted in Russia. In Zion USA, fake extremists are targeted.

    For the eighth time this past decade, Russian authorities told a foreign Chabad rabbi living in Russia to leave the country.

    Josef Marozof, a New York-born rabbi who began working 12 years ago for Chabad in the city of Ulyanovsk 400 miles east of Moscow, was ordered earlier this week to leave because the FSB security service said he had been involved in unspecified “extremist behavior.”Last year, a court in Krasnodar ordered the deportation of Ari Edelkopf, who had been working as Chabad’s emissary to the city of Sochi, on grounds that he was a threat to national security.

    Marozof had a residence permit well into 2021 but it had been revoked over the charges, which he denied and asked they be made public so he could challenge them. The court declined to order the FSB to specify the charges.

    Chabad does have friendly relations with Putin. Yet, they can not be extremists as many Jewish Supremacists can do in the West.

    Chabad of Russia, which enjoys friendly relations with President Vladimir Putin, strongly protested Edelkopf’s expulsion, which the movement said was disconcerting because of the allegation that he endangers state security

    Foreign born clerics of any religion are frowned on by the Russian state.

    Behind the expulsion of Edelkopf and the other rabbis, according to Boruch Gorin, a senior aide to Russian Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar, is an attempt by the state to limit the number of foreign clerics living in Russia – an effort that has led to expulsions not only of rabbis but also of imams and Protestant priests.

  141. @Joe Levantine

    I’ll give Putin credit for stepping into the Syria mess, but then he has a naval base there in the west and I have to ask what is it he’s really protecting. It doesn’t appear he’s doing much in the east of the country.

    Since you are an expert on Money, Mefobills

    One of the benefits of the internet is that you can quickly do research that would have taken several days or even weeks using test books. One can type in a topic and get a whole range of documentation such that in summarising it all one looks like an “expert” even though the summary is disjointed and absolute rubbish.

    So for example I could tell you how to operate on a brain clot. You would think I am a high end surgeon but if you put me in the operating room I would be lost. I could tell you step how to change a timing belt but put a wrench and a socket set in my hands and I would suddenly get cold feet.

    Mefobills, is such a character. He picks up a snippet here and a snippet there, puts them all together and bingo he sounds intelligent to the amateur. However, to someone who is a financial professional Mefobills is a nincompoop and what he writes is sheer nonsense. As in the example of the “surgeon” above I doubt Mefo is even capable of running a hot dog stand. You should ask him what are his qualifications and the details of his professional career. No doubt he will make up another load of gibberish but I guarantee if you actually met the man you would be surprised to learn that the closest he came to finance was being paid for swabbing the toilets at a truck stop.

    Here is a test for Mefo and one he will not be able to research because you will not find an explanation anywhere on the internet. Question: What is the Law of Distribution ? This is a very old and forgotten concept but a financial law applicable today every minute of every day.

    Good luck getting an answer from the fool. Dont be impressed by people on UR who belabour the same theme day after day. It does not make them an expert !

    It’s not that simple; When the IMF gives a loan to a country (the so called SDR – in fact the right to claim part of that country’s “unused” currency parked in the central banks) it limits the ability of this country to print money without IMF consent.

    IMF only agrees for this country to print money only for specific activities that ultimately benefit the US (as the US is the biggest contributor to the basket of currencies in the IMF and has a veto power).

    For example, Zaire wants to buy weapons from the USA, asks IMF to print a billion, IMF agrees and de-blocks part of its claims of SDR for 1 billion. Zaire then prints, buys the weapons, and depending on the velocity of the money circulation in the Zaire economy, it takes several months for the inflation to catch up, thus the weapons are in fact purchased by impovereishing the Zaire populations. IMF and the Zaire government are happy. The whole process physically happens in Washington DC data servers – Zaire does not contral the process. IMF doens’t care about the locals if that benefits the US so it lets inflation run rampart. But if Zaire wants to buy for example Russian missiles, suddenly the IMF says it will not allow money printing. That’s in essence how SDR works – it gives the US power to control country’s inflation and in fact encourages it (thus often destroying the local economy) because the benefits are immediately available for both the US and the corresponding country’s rulers. It is the population that suffers from diminishing purchasing power.

    It’s not that simple in practice, I’m trying to give an easy enoug example for people outside finance.

    There’s much more in play – SDR interest rate is determined weekly (I think it was each Friday) based rates of participating currencies, and there’s a big scam with how this is done (in fact a cartel of insiders that trade this info similar to the London gold market) etc., but you get the picture.

    Then there are private investment funds financing the IMF (few people know it but IMF consists of several organisatons and by private capital also finances countries via IMFStructures). Those are of course some selected wallstreet friends.

    In short, there are a lot of schemes around the IMF, its’ not just handling a bag full of money to the local dictator, it’s about controlling the economy of a country and the money flow. The bribe given to the the local chief is just a necessary nuissance.

    For instance this:

    Russia has no capacity to produce sufficient amount of vaccine to meet its grandiose promises that were made in 2020. In December 2020 several planeloads of vaccine from South Korea were brought to Moscow because there was not enough Russian produced vaccines…

    Oh really? Maybe you could back up some of this bullshit with some citations?

    FACT: South Korea was among the first countries to sign a deal to produce the Sputnik vaccine.

    The vaccines sent to Russia by Korea were Korean-produced SAMPLES of Sputnik, so they could be quality-approved by Russia. Since then a SECOND Korean consortium has signed a deal to produce Sputnik.

    GL Rapha, which became the second foreign producer of the vaccine after Russia announced its efficacy in early November, is waiting for final approval of its product after sending samples to Russia for validation, a GL Rapha official said.

    —Reuters: Second South Korean deal to produce Russia’s Sputnik V

To put it more clearly -how many did die while enrolled in both arms of the trials. Then tell us how many did die from accidental fall, or drowning ,or car accident because any death or injury during the trial get entered into the data base as adverse events.

    If Tylenol or Lithium wouldn’t get into the market if FDA’s safety rules existed back then .

    Next the question is whyMRNA will cause death or i injury ? Our body is receiving mRNA from all kinds of viruses all the times in various ways .These mRNA are getting into bowel lung and blood .

    People have reservation about any treatment for Covid . But refusing treatment because “Covid is conspiracy ” is like deciding not to evacuate from Hiroshima or take iodine or wear protective gear because Nuclear science and power of the Atom bomb are nothing but figment of the warmongering nation in 1940s to harm or confuse people”.

The numbers also clearly underestimate the actual number of adverse reactions because the people running this operation are doing everything they can to hide the issue. One case in point, the number of PCR cycles required to prove that a “vaccinated” person has not contracted COVID has been reduced to about 20, while the number of cycles to prove that an “unvaccinated” person is covid free remains ridiculously high in all these countries.

    Russian politics from the time of Catherine the Great was to reach the warm waters of the Middle East to the point that the Empress once stated “ the Keys of Moscow are in Damascus”. Putin has managed to gain a port on the Mediterranean coast and an airbase in Hmeimim. Let us not forget that before the start of the conflict, the current Syrian leader was acting as a totally independent operator in the Middle East, making opening towards the Americans and the Europeans without any coordination with the Russians, something his far more shrewd father would have never done. Putin knew that in order to get long term concessions from the Syrian leader, ha had to wait until Bashar Al Assad would be in dire straits, something that happened in 2015 and subsequently the Russian intervention turned the tide of the war within three days. Putin has at heart Russian interest first and foremost. But having witnessed his grovelling to the Israeli Prime Minister on more than one occasion, especially when he stood in front of the wailing wall, I came to the conclusion that he is hardly God’s gift to the world, yet I wish I could have a leader of Putin’s caliber.

    I have no doubt that if either the Americans or the Israelis threaten the Russian position in Syria, the Russian response would show far more spine than their current response to Israeli raids against the Syrian army and its Iranian and Hezbollah allies.

    Are you some kind of professional in air logistics now, like you pretend to be in virus medicine?

    Having shipments on three separate flights does NOT mean each plane was full of vaccines, you idiot.

    There are all kinds of possibilities. Maybe the validation process required samples from several distinct manufacture batches, made on different days?

    Maybe the plane capacity for refrigerated products is limited and they could only get a single box on each plane?

    What do you know about these things anyway?

    And btw, that Reuters report I linked to states that the Korean company is STILL waiting for VALIDATION of their vaccines, as of that report publication April 15.

    GL Rapha, which became the second foreign producer of the vaccine after Russia announced its efficacy in early November, is waiting for final approval of its product after sending samples to Russia for validation, a GL Rapha official said.

    So how could Russia be using those vaccines and giving them to people, yet the Koreans still haven’t got the approval FOUR MONTHS LATER?

    That ‘big story’ you link to in in that mickey mouse Korean paper is more about Asiana Airlines, a South Korean line.

    Transporting those vaccines appears to be about bragging about how the airline was FIRST to ship finished vaccines, which need to be kept under special temperature controlled conditions. From your own link:

By the end of May 2021 Russia produced about 30 million (two dose kits) out of which about half was exported, so there was enough to vaccinate only 10% of Russia’s population.

    Kremlin media in 2020 launched propaganda campaign meant to undermine western vaccines concentrating on bad side effects and giving platform to silly anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories…So Kremlin propaganda could direct the blame against ordinary Russians that they were ignorant, obscurantist muzhiks, just like Bolsheviks when they were starving peasants to death, for not vaccinating while it was exactly what Kremlin wanted because they did not have enough vaccines. They created a false image of vaccine surplus that was infinitesimally shallow to hide the lack of industrial capacity to produce vaccines and to be able to meet their obligation and promises to send vaccines abroad

    That’s an interesting theory. I haven’t looked into it, but it seems reasonably plausible.

    What will the damage be to Russia’s credibility and moral authority if it can’t or won’t make good on its initial pledge to deliver “the vaccine for all mankind”?

    But while it’s practically impossible to run exact numbers, given the lack of transparency around vaccination rates and production rollout, back-of-the-envelope calculations indicate that shortages are likely to persist. Russia already had to import some Sputnik V from South Korea in December 2020.

    Again, IDIOT, you are citing ‘news’ items that ran in December.

    Yet, in April, that same Korean company said it sent SAMPLES to Russia, and is still waiting for validation!

    How can the Russians be using those vaccines, without them being validated?

    Your latest garbage comes from the NYT in December, from one Andrew Kramer and clearly states that the Korean company has NOT COMMENTED AT ALL.

    While the scale of the imports is impossible to gauge because of nondisclosure agreements…

    Yeah, funny that. because the ‘scale’ of the ‘imports’ is simply pre-production SAMPLES.

    The rest is just pure BALONEY and wishcasting!

    As we have seen plenty of in recent times. Like with the Russian hypersonic weapons that was supposedly all a big Kremlin psy-op, until US weapons inspectors physically witnessed, as per arms limitations treaties, while those Avangard missiles being deployed in their silos!

    Here from your own linked garbage in the NYT:

    In written answers to questions, GL Rapha, the Korean manufacturer, said it could not discuss shipments because of the nondisclosure agreement.

    So there is zero information on the amount of Sputnik shipped from Korea, neither by the Korean company licensed to manufacture it.

    Nor is there any information from Asiana airlines which transported it, as to how much was shipped.

    But we do know for a fact that that even four months after this bullshit was first blown up by the NYT, that the Korean company was not yet VALIDATED to sell the vaccine!

    Get real. You are simply a complete idiot—repeating a completely fake story with ZERO FACTS to back up any of it. And directly contradicted by credible news stories that, months later, those korean companies were still waiting for validation.

    To busy like this FB character either living in the past,ie, blathering endlessly about the niche elements of Soviet/Russian economy,which can’t manufacture enough vaccine,its own government departments plus the Higher School of Economics of Moscow recently published a key report on import substitution and found contrary to the propaganda Russia wasn’t doing well in terms of manufacturing pharmaceuticals,in fact its economy is heavily dependent upon imorts,but some people don’t want to know how dependent upon the global economy Russia really is and how it can’t develop its industries because of the poor business environment,its not considered one of the most corrupt country in the world for nothing!

    If in doubt I’d suggest you read one of your own contributors essay written a couple of years ago by Anatoly Karlin about the backwardness of science and how that impacts into the ability of Russia to compete,karlin didn’t even mention 3D printing or synthetic biology which America are global leaders in,but still i suppose its better than nothing,to many folks busy running America down to understand Russia is far more likely to collapse in the long run than America

    but all this is academic It doesn’t even matter as people in Russia simply don’t trust the government and don’t want to take any vaccines meanwhile the government are now seriously talking about forcing vaccination for covid which is now out of control with the 3rd wave badly hitting Moscow,so to all those folks who think its just the hoax ask yourself why Putin’s regime can’t control it and want truly draconian methods to do so?

    And please don’t come out with some BS about Rothschild or “jews”

    Putin has seriously screwed up over covid,he’s spent the majority of his time in his covid bunker,he couldn’t even be bothered to meet the grieving families after the recent school shooting in Kazan,but Putin is very slippery and dispite his poor abilities to deal with covid he’s still highly popular,depressing isn’t it! But we’ll see what happens after his fake selections this September

    tldr; There was a surplus of vaccines from February as evidenced by empty slots at clinics and zero queues at public vaccination spots, despite an intensive information campaign promoting it. The vaccines that were exported would have otherwise been thrown away.

But somehow I end up a Kremlin propagandist, at least according to a boorish alcoholic who claims that my participation in trialing the Sputnik vaccine was tantamount to stealing it from pensioners.

    Russia has difficulties scaling up vaccine production. Just follow the statements of the trade and industry minister Denis Manturov over last 10 months.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-russia-putin/putin-says-equipment-a-problem-in-production-of-russian-covid-19-vaccines-idUSKBN27E21X

    In December 2020 they confirmed that 2 million was produced out of which 1 million would be used to vaccinate Russians.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-russia-cases/russia-to-distribute-over-1-million-sputnik-v-shots-at-home-by-year-end-minister-idUSKBN2940NQ

    In mid May 2021 they said that 33 million was produced out of which 15 was exported.

    https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/big-promises-few-doses-why-russias-struggling-make-sputnik-v-doses-2021-05-14/

    Now six weeks later in the end of June 2021 Manturov says that 36.7 million was produced so far. This means that in six weeks they produced 4 million doses only which is 2.7 million per month.

    However Manturov assures us that in July 2021

    “Up to 37 million doses could be produced in July alone, he said: 30 million in Russia and 5 to 6 million abroad. ”

    https://www.businessinsider.com/few-russia-promised-sputnik-v-doses-arrived-vaccine-covid-2021-6

    Is this a big issue? No it is not. It is just a reality of Russia. Very similar to the reality of America last year when people realized that there was no industrial capacity in America to produce sufficient number of protective masks. This was widely discussed in media and blogs and many people got upset but I do not remember anybody acting with wounded pride trying to cover it up or act as an apologist for American government. Americans know that if there is a problem they can fix it and there is no point of hiding it because it makes fixing it harder.

    Russians however are different they keep spinning lies and building Potemkin villages and pretending that they are real. And when you point out to them the sham and fakery that the village is made of cardboard they get all upset and butt-hurt and will come with new lies and eventually they will bring up the ultimate Russian trump card like mentioning their great nuclear arsenal or the hypersonic weapons that may or may not exist (as you did in one of your comments above).

    We all understand that you are not a typical representative of the Russian nation. Simply because you are a real nut who has a serious personality disorder and should be kept away from computer by parents or orderlies that take care of you. Nevertheless, there is a streak of pathological defensiveness and a butt-hurt frame of mind among many Russians. This is sad but I understand that Soviet communism did a job on you people and it may take few generations before you become normal. Unfortunately Putin and his regime are not helping because they relapsed to the same phony triumphalism as their Soviet predecessors that again requires building Potemkin villages out of cardboard. The hype and spin around the Sputnik V vaccine is a perfect example of it. Kremlin wanted to have a success and something to boast about but it turned out as usual.

    “foreigners are getting the short end of the stick” – and it shows in the increased daily vaccination rate from 150k-180k per day before June 20 when it begins to ramp up to 470k per day on July 3.

    See the blue curve on the second graph in

    https://gogov.ru/articles/covid-v-stats

    This just shows that once there is vaccine available and there is a real push from government and not some phony-baloney Potemkin clinics in shopping malls people will vaccinate. And this could have happened already 1-2 months ago if instead of exporting 15 millions of doses (2 set kits) they were slated for the domestic use. But they were not and that’s why only 150k-180k per day were vaccinating. People were vaccinating to the full extent of vaccine availability. Your counterfactual supposition that vaccines would be thrown away if they were not exported is obviously untrue. If vaccines were not exported by mid June about 20% would have been fully vaccinated instead of 10%. And if the 20% included 90% of the 65 year old and older the effective IFR in the current wave of the epidemic would be 10 times lower.

    Sometimes your sentiments coincide with Kremlin interests. In this case your need to be proud of Russia, which is understandable, got the better of you and you jumped on the bandwagon of Sputnik V success the way it was being span by Kremlin. Then you wrote the article in which you introduced the meme “dying is optional in Russia” which was picked up by Russia Today. Unfortunately this pride of Russia you have purchased using cheap currency by demeaning and besmirching Russian people. This was the chief reason I was upset by what you wrote. On top of it you were wrong. Wittingly or not you were Kremlin propagandist at that time.

    Russia doesn’t have a developed pharma industry like the US, UK, Switzerland, and a few select other countries, so its failure to produce Sputnik V in the 100s of millions, during a period in which there is intense global competition for equipment to produce vaccines, and bearing in mind that Sputnik is more complicated to produce than most other vaccines, is not so much disappointing as unsurprising.

    Nonetheless, helpful of you to provide a link which further confirms what I have been saying all along. https://www.unz.com/akarlin/dying-from-corona-in-russia/

    From https://www.businessinsider.com/few-russia-promised-sputnik-v-doses-arrived-vaccine-covid-2021-6

    But Russia has now has its own crushing wave of infections to deal with, and has said that vaccine exports will have to wait. … Kremlin spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said last week: “The absolute priority is domestic consumption, vaccination of Russians. Satisfying the demand abroad is currently not possible; all obligations will be fulfilled later.”

    So, exactly as I predicted, any sharp surge in domestic demand would be met out of exports. With demand now going from ~50% of supply to ~100% of supply, that is now precisely what is happening. Notably, that is the exact opposite of your claims that Russians who want to get vaccinated are being sacrificed on the altar of Corona to earn the Kremlin prestige points in such powerful and influential places like Guatemala and various African countries.

    Could it not be that Russia is actually counting Covid deaths only where Covid is in fact the cause.
    In the west, anyone who tested positive for Covid in the last 28 days and died (even when falling off a bicycle under a truck) was counted as Covid, and unusually there were zero deaths from Flu which normally claims many more than 300,000 per year. :-
    “WHO : annual mortality burden of influenza to be 250 000 to 500 000 all-cause deaths globally; however, a 2017 study indicated a substantially higher mortality burden, at 290 000-650 000 influenza-associated deaths from respiratory causes alone, and a 2019 study estimated 99 000-200 000 deaths from lower respiratory tract infections directly caused by influenza. ”

    Putin delegates and heaven help the bureaucrat that displeases him by not following through.
    He knows that people grow through experience and sometimes failure so he allows his ‘managers’, mayors etc. to take their own paths and their own risks, but not too much or stray to far.
    He knows that he sometimes has to bypass the ‘official’ channels to hear what is happening in Russia.
    He has reinvented Russia from a failed Empire and corrupt oligarchy into a modern, powerful but small and limited state.
    Unlike Trump he realised that it will take time, years at least and maybe generations, to achieve the potential that Russia is capable of. He has to prioritise and schedule. First safety from external and internal foes. Then rebuild society, then rebuild prosperity.

    This just shows that once there is vaccine available and there is a real push from government and not some phony-baloney Potemkin clinics in shopping malls people will vaccinate.

    First, Potemkin as adjective (in the popular Western imagination – see Seraphim) implies something fake/purely decorative, “Potemkin clinic” implies they don’t stock vaccines or are entirely fictitious, but not just me but melanf (a Russian who lives in Saint-Petersburg) and even AP have been telling you that anyone could go to those “Potemkin clinics in shopping malls” (parks, etc.) and get vaccinated since around late Feb/March. From the previous thread, I also mentioned that initially, during Jan-Feb, vaccination was only open to old people, but this was relaxed once interest from that demographic was exhausted. Old people were being specifically called up by the clinics they were attached to in order to come in and get a shot. It is sad that many Russian geezers are suicidal anti-vaxxers, but that’s ultimately their choice. I suppose Russia could have done things like paying them 10,000R to get the jab, but not many countries pay people to get vaccinated at the state level AFAIK and paying so many of them would impose a large cost for questionable value.

    Second, on people vaccinating now as opposed to before. Well, yes. When the geezers see their social contacts going dim thanks to the Delta wave, some of the previously skeptically inclined with a sense for self-preservation will decide that Sputnik isn’t a Putler plot to steal their pension after all, and are now going and getting vaccinated. And then Moscow mandated vaccination-linked QR codes to enter any restaurant, at which point many of the previously anti-vaxxer yuppies rushed in.

    That is the obvious explanation for the rise, not a resolution of supply shortages that multiple people have shown were non-existent.

Too much of the current ‘western civilization’ should help to clear the Ukrainians’ heads from the fog of make-belief. Perhaps even the Canadian diaspora is coming to its senses after seeing how their efforts helped to convert Ukraine into the ziocon colony.

Beyond revising their views on the pros and contras of vaccination, some people are motivated by the temporary shortage of jabbing.

    Hep C was first identified only by molecular analysis

    1 “SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Here, we investigated the interaction of this new coronavirus with Vero cells using high resolution scanning electron microscopy. Surface morphology, the interior of infected cells and the distribution of viral particles in both environments were observed 2 and 48 h after infection. We showed areas of viral processing, details of vacuole contents, and viral interactions with the cell surface. Intercellular connections were also approached, and viral particles were adhered to these extensions suggesting direct cell-to-cell transmission of SARS-CoV-2.”https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-73162-5

    2 The name coronavirus was coined by June D. Almeida, who visualized the virus by EM in 1967 – J Gen Virol. 1967;1:175–8.

    3 The name was derived from the surface peplomers or spikes that give the viral particles the appearance of having a solar corona. These spikes are one of the more distinctive features for a coronavirus. For diagnostic EM, coronaviruses can be observed using 2 techniques, negative stain (36) and thin section –Emerg Infect Dis. 2004;10:320–6.

    There are missteps and misattributions always in tissue samples when subcelluar organelles are being seen next to virus particle .

    But once a corona virus been identified by the method seen way back in 1967, and later by EM ( used too identify Covid SARS ) , one can use other techniques like
    1 genomic analysis
    2 cytopathic effects

    3 changes in the sub cellar compartments
    4 responses by T ,B cells and presence of antibodies
    5 Immunofluroscence
    6 ELISA
    7 Radioimmunoassay

    8 Hybridization of DNA/RNA strand and display on array
    9effects on animals
    10 Branched Chain Technique
    11PCR and RT-PCR
    12 EM and immunoelectron microscopy was used to identify SARS

    Virus Isolation in cell culture-Its “Gold Standard but used less and less
    Cell lines like Vero,MDCK,MRC-5 are used aided by EM for screening for viruses from body fluid /secretions and then watched for typical cytopathic effects

    Well, I don’t think it’s necessary for there to be some kind of grand conspiracy to harm people with injections.

    Occam’s razor etc. A more prosaic explanation is that these clowns in the touted biotech industry simply don’t know what they are doing.

    Medical science is by far the least reliable of any hard science. A huge number of afflictions [perhaps a majority] are classed as ‘idiopathic,’ which means that the underlying causes are not known or understood.

    This is not like physics where outcomes can be predicted mathematically, based on proven physical laws of motion, for instance [Newton], which we can use to predict the orbit of a spacecraft. Or thermodynamics, which we use to predict the performance of complicated machines like rocket engines.

    For instance, the Human Genome Project which generated huge media coverage for many years during the 1990s and early 2000s. When it first started, the consensus among ‘experts’ was that there would be between 80,000 to 140,000 genes in the human genome.

    Well, that figure kept getting revised downward, until now they say it’s between 20 and 25 thousand. This is about the same as a fruit fly, and half that of an onion, lol!

    Not only that, an even bigger shocker is that this protein-coding DNA is only about one percent of the three billion base pairs of DNA in the genome that is contained in each body cell. The other 99 percent that doesn’t make proteins was pronounced as JUNK!

    Only now are they discovering that this supposed ‘junk’ is in fact the key to many ailments!

    For example, atrial fibrillation and coronary artery disease risk are mostly controlled by variants in non-coding regions [non-coding variance fraction over 70 percent], whereas diabetes and high cholesterol display the opposite pattern [non-coding variance roughly 20-30 percent].

    So the bottom line is that what they actually know with any certainty, is next to diddly squat!

    They are still btw ‘revising’ that same genome project [like some piece of MS Office] . The latest revision coming out just in May of this year,

    In May finally last 5 gaps in rDNA were found and published as version 1.1.

    But this doesn’t include the Y chromosome, which is what males carry, lol!

    [On a personal note, I was avidly following this genome project on a daily basis at the time, religiously reading the vaunted NYT ‘Science Times’ section, which ran huge amounts of coverage on this for years. until it became increasingly clear that this was a complete FARCE!]

    Yet we are supposed to take it on faith from these same biotech clowns that the gene therapy vaccines are completely safe?

    Unfortunately, unlike software, and the continuing ‘revisions’ by these clowns, your life doesn’t come with the possibility of a ‘version 1.1.’

    Just to contrast this clownshow of ever-changing ‘results’, consider that Newton, more than 300 years ago, came up with a number for the universal gravitational constant that is remarkably accurate with the modern number. [6.673×10^−11 vs Newton’s (6.7±0.6)×10^−11 ]

    It doesn’t take a Nobel genius to conclude that these biotech clowns and their ‘vaccines’ are guesswork at best!

    Nothing wrong with that. It’s just that people, especially, scientists, should admit when they do not understand a natural phenomenon adequately.

    Instead, this lack of concrete knowledge is never admitted—and in fact the idiotic media only cheerleads and greatly inflates the supposed ‘achievements’ of biotech and leads the sheeple to believe that these things are known with an EXACTITUDE that is in fact mathematical, on the order of one plus one equals two!

    This is the problem, and it leads to the retarded behavior we see here with clowns like this ‘utu.’ This human tendency is very important and was described by Dunning and Kruger in their landmark 1999 study:

    The psychological phenomenon of illusory superiority was identified as a form of cognitive bias in Kruger and Dunning’s 1999 study ‘Unskilled and Unaware of It: How Difficulties in Recognizing One’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments’.

    So we have a situation where the biotech clowns behind these vaccines are only encouraged by an idiotic, fawning media to amplify their own Dunning-Kruger conceits. Not to mention the even more misguided encouragement from a dumbshit general public, like our spaz ‘utu.’

    HOWEVER, it is important to note that not all scientists are falling for this trap.

    We now have many prominent experts in this field speaking out about the dangers—including the inventor of mRNA technology himself, Dr Robert Malone, who is regarded by many as the single most qualified mRNA expert. You can find him easily now speaking out about the vaccine problem.

    And just in the last few days we have had a peer-reviewed paper that studied the Israeli population, which has been massively vaccinated and found that in preventing three covid deaths, the mRNA vaccine caused two deaths of its own!

    Notice that this paper, in the journal Vaccines, has since been RETRACTED, lol!

    The Global Research website has articles on this though, for instance this one up today.

    So what we are seeing is in fact nothing new. The power elite has been treating the ordinary people as nothing but chattel for a long time already. Why not treat us as guinea pigs too? Why should they care if their potions are not very good, or in fact even dangerous to many people?

    “As David Buckingham [17] has noted, calls for increased literacy have often become a form of wrong-headed solutionism that posits education as the fix to all media-related problems. danah boyd [16] has documented, too, that calling for increased media literacy can often backfire: the instruction to “question more” can lead to a weaponization of critical thinking and increased distrust of media and government institutions. She argues that calls for media literacy can often frame problems like fake news as ones of personal responsibility rather than a crisis of collective action. Similarly, Francesca Tripodi [98] has shown how evangelical voters do not vote for Trump because they have been “fooled” by fake news, but because they privilege the personal study of primary sources and have found logical inconsistencies not in Trump’s words, but in mainstream media portrayals of the president. As such, Tripodi argues, media literacy is not a means of fighting “alternative facts.” Christopher Bail et al. [8] have also shown how being exposed to more opposing views can actually increase political polarization.

    Finally, in his study of how climate skeptics interpret scientific studies, Frank Fischer [42] argues that increasing fact-checking or levels of scientific literacy is insufficient for fighting alternative facts. “While fact checking is a worthy activity,” he says, “we need to look deeper into this phenomenon to find out what it is about, what is behind it.” Further qualitative studies that investigate how ideas are culturally and historically situated, as the discussion around COVID datasets and visualizations are manifestations of deeper political questions about the role of science in public life.”

    Are you not able to see that the bolded parts negate isolation and purification? It’s not that difficult to understand. Do you think the authors of this paper themselves would even admit it? Despite the dazzling words and data, should we trust any study based on a false premise or misuse of key terms such as “isolation” and “purification”?

    Virus replication and isolation were confirmed through cytopathic effects, gene detection, and electron microscopy.

    In other words, not through Koch’s postulates.

    The closest anyone has come to a true “isolation and purification” of any micro-organism called a “virus” is Stefan Lanka in his study of sea algae. And his evidence points to the surprising conclusion that these micro-organisms were not pathogenic, but instead caused the algae to thrive. Look it up.

    We have a lot to learn.

    The bold part is a classic example of the logical fallacy known as petitio principii (also known as “assuming what you set out to prove”).

    lets recap few details :

    1 Peyton Rous . Have you heard his name ? Have you heard Rous sarcoma virus? He was given Nobel for cancer and virus link.

    Since then many other Neoplasia inducing virus have been identified . But Nobel is not going to award the prize repeatedly just for establishing the links between the 2 .

    2 Approximately 15%‒20% of human cancers worldwide are caused, directly or indirectly, by viruses. So far, seven viruses have been shown to be implicated. They are listed on the of the MD Anderson Cancer website, and are classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC):

    Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which increases the risk of Burkitt lymphoma, some types of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and nasopharyngeal and stomach cancer;

    Human papillomavirus (HPV), which has several strains that can cause cancer in women, mostly in the uterus and cervix, but also vagina and vulva. It can also induce tumours that are not specific to any gender, including cancers of the anus, throat, and head and neck;

    Human T-cell leukaemia virus type, or human T-lymphotrophic virus (HTLV-1), which is linked to adult T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma;
    Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV), which are leading causes of liver cancer. Hepatitis C can also cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma;
    Human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8), which is related to Kaposi sarcoma in a Mediterranean population or in people who have a weakened immune system;

    The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which does not cause cancer directly, but increases the risk of cancers by affecting the immune system and reducing the body’s defences against other oncoviruses. HIV-associated cancers include Kaposi sarcoma, non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphoma, cervical cancer, and cancers of the anus, liver, mouth and throat, and lung.

    Peyton Rous . Have you heard his name ? Have you heard Rous sarcoma virus? He was given Nobel for cancer and virus link.

    A quick check on this reveals that Rous, who did win the Nobel Prize in medicine, discovered that a virus could TRANSMIT a cancer from a chicken that already has cancer, to another, healthy chicken, after being INJECTED.

    Transmission is not the same as CAUSE.

    That was very early on, in 1911, and is called the Rous sarcoma virus. Since then, much research has been done and a number of ‘oncoviruses’ have been described and studied.

    Let’s consider basics. A smallpox virus also TRANSMITS an illness, by means of infecting a healthy person by exposure to an already sick person. That’s how all viruses work. They are TRANSMITTERS. That is what infection means.

    So saying a virus causes any disease is like saying a mosquito causes malaria. Obviously that is not an accurate description of how that works. The mosquito TRANSMITS the malaria plasmodium [a unicellular microorganism], which is what causes the illness.

    It is the same with oncoviruses. Only here, these viruses carry DNA instead of plasmodium. Like Mosquitos they are CARRIERS.

    In the wikipedia article on oncoviruses we have this:

    viruses cannot truly be isolated in pure culture—even stringent isolation techniques cannot exclude undetected contaminating viruses with similar density characteristics, and viruses must be grown on cells.

    Therefore those who say that particular types of viruses have never been isolated appear to have a solid point.

    Things are not so black and white as you and others here would like to argue.

    This brings me back to my point about how little medical ‘science’ actually knows with definite certainty. Biology appears to be infinitely more complex than physics, with which I am well versed.

    It is obvious that medical science has a long way to go before people start speaking with CERTITUDES that are mathematical—such as one plus one equals two.

    Lay people, especially, should refrain from arguing about TECHNICAL points having to do with complex subjects like viruses. Even the pros are arguing all the time about what is right and what isn’t.

    Bottom line is: your input is not helpful, nor insightful in any way regarding the subject under discussion.

    Viruses from DNA viruses and from RNA viruses achieve though different initial mechanism .
    Repeatedly cancer has been found to develop in various animals from injection of the viruses

    cancer causing viruses are known in the scientific world

    Understanding of carcinogenesis by viruses is pretty well advanced and is triggering various therapeutic interventions to target these cancers

    Even vaccine has been developed to prevent virus induced cancer and is in use .

    When a mosquito infects it sends the parasite inside the red cell .
    When a virus – created sarcoma is implanted ,the same virus starts the carcinogenic process
    The same virus without the tumor also causes cancer .

    You need need not mosquito nor the tumor to create malaria or cancer in laboratory .

    These are Vectors .( difference – malarial sporozoite doesn’t create Anopheles mosquito 🦟

    Virus creates the tumor that can behave like a vector in lab ).

    This lay man understates a lot about virus replication , exit , attachment , entry , disassembly , hijacking cellular machineray , giving rise to cytokines changes , recruiting of immunocytes hijacking T cell or Dendeific cell and production of antibody or suppression of them or producing them in deviant way , and propagation .

    Britain won with the help of it’s big brother but the Falklands have been a drain on their economy and military for the last 40 years.

    The Falklands war was all about oil. Thatcher’s husband was a director of BP (British Petroleum). Their experts reasoned that with a massive amount of continental shelf, the Falklands probably had big oil deposits. Thatcher was not at all interested in the sheep farmers who inhabit these isolated islands.

    In the event, they did not find any economical oil – despite a massive amount of prospecting and drilling. Now, most of their income comes from selling licenses to fish to the Asian nations. 🙂

    Here is a typical article about the prospects for extracting oil in the future.

    The first oil is expected in 2016 from the North Basin. The larger South and East Basin is still at the exploratory stage. Finding the oil is only the first step — and many hazardous operations will follow. Will the oil be economical to extract? The changing requirements of regulators in demanding cleaner petroleum products puts a premium on low sulphur oil for example. Regulatory change is discussed in Meeting Tier 3 Requirements with Ease and Precision. These far flung islands could soon be very rich — but at what cost?

    How Much Oil Is There in the Falklands? (2014)

    The Sea Lion oil discovery was made back in 2010, but the project has been delayed several times. Back in 2014, Premier and Rockhopper targeted had targeted first oil for 2019 following sanction in 2016, however, years later, the field development has yet to reach a final investment decision.

    Premier Oil Shelves $1.8B Falkland Islands Offshore Project (2020)

    It looks like the oil will be “stranded”. It will never be exploited. Thatcher’s gamble has failed. In fact, they sunk a lot of money into various projects and never got any return. 🙂

    Syria (and by extension Russia) has been allowing Israel to overfly her territory and bomb Hezbollah installations

    The Israelis claim to be bombing Iranian targets in Syria. I suspect this is largely for domestic consumption in Israel. The Iranians are smart and not so easy to target. Whatever casualties they are suffering, if any, are trivial in the grand scheme of things. They are a nation of 90 million.

    Like the Russians, the Iranians are playing for time. A skill the Chinese mastered a long time ago. Every month that passes and Israel becomes more divided against itself. Every month that passes and the US becomes weaker due to their incompetent ruling class. Why hasten their end?

    Their own citizens can generally enter either with a fresh test or quarantine or both. But it varies bby country. Likewise, as of I think last week, EU countries that accept Sputnik vaccination as proof that a foreigner is “safe to let in” are Cyprus, Greece, Bulgaria, and Croatia.

    Those who let in people with the Chinese jab are mostly the same plus unexpected places like Finland, Austria, and Spain.

    The difference being, IMO, that if you enter as a foreigner with an EU approved vaccine, you in theory can go anywhere within the EU, while with the Russian or Chinese ones, you can only enter the countries that signed the separate approval deals with Russia and China.

    Alfred, perhaps you are quoting here another commenter—but Israel has NOT been overflying Syria in any way shape or form, nor even entering its airspace.

    Israel has been launching its missiles from standoff range, usually from Lebanese airspace. The last time Israel violated Syrian airspace, in 2019, the Syrians shot down an Israeli F16, using their old 1970s-era S200.

    Since then Russia has brought in several S300 batteries that it transferred to Syria, but which are almost certainly under Russian control. That happened after the downing of the Russian recon plane, supposedly by S200 Syrian friendly fire—while a pair of Israeli F16s was in the air, firing missiles from international airspace off the coast.

    Those S300s are Russian-spec btw, which were deployed operationally in Russia before their transfer, and are presumably modernized to something close to S400 capability [perhaps even with the S400 radars].

    At the same time, Russian military told Israelis that further violations of airspace would not be tolerated. Israel has complied with that.

    Russian air defense is reputed to be able to track Israeli aircraft as soon as they take off, which is technically feasible, given the known range characteristics of the S400 [and even S300] radars, plus their likely deployment [on road-mobile chassis] in the highlands of Latakia governorate.

    However, shooting at Israeli aircraft flying outside Syrian airspace is a questionable tactic that would certainly escalate the situation. That is not what Russia wants. It is the lesser of two evils choice. The Israeli missile strikes are, in military-tactical terms, more of an annoyance than any real hindrance. They do not change anything.

    The big problem is the continuing US presence in the Kurd-controlled northeast—plus the Kurds’ continuing willingness to host them, instead of reaching an accommodation with the government. Here the Turks’ encroachment has only been beneficial, and in this theater, the Turks are directly opposed to the US forces protecting the Kurds.

    Of course, the Turks must also be kept in check, and the Russo-Turkish agreement there is holding up well [unlike in Idlib].

    In any case, time is not on the US side. They have had to abandon Afghanistan [in quite a state of disarray], having just snuck out of their Bagram Air Base like thieves in the night, leaving the place to be looted by locals.

    By contrast the Soviet withdrawal in 1989 was orderly and with flags flying.

    At some point, the US will have to leave Syria too, with tail tucked, no doubt!

    Okay!

    Go ahead, lol! I can’t wait for hundreds of words more meaningless GIBBERISH.

    Look, you are so delusional that it is probably a serious medical problem. Not surprising. Many such clowns on the internet.

    Here is a brief introductory discussion on oncoviruses from the University of Texas:

    The effects of these viruses on cancer development is highly complicated.

    Experts don’t fully understand how most known oncoviruses cause cancer.

    What is known is that viruses highjack cells and insert their own DNA or RNA into the host cell. This can cause the host cells to become cancerous.

    But you understand what these experts don’t?

    Like I said already, a virus is a CARRIER. It carries genetic material, DNA or RNA, that enters the cell and interacts with the cell’s genome in such a way that it leads to illness, in some cases cancer.

    That is a direct result of the DNA or RNA that it inserts into the cell. This is completely analogous to mosquitos carrying malaria, or rats carrying plague bacteria etc.

    But where does the virus get that DNA or RNA?

    In the case of the Rous sarcoma, it came directly from a cancer tumor on a chicken. But medical science does NOT know where those HUMAN oncoviruses get that DNA or RNA.

    If you know where that comes from then please explain, instead of insisting on how much you THINK you know. Maybe you are going to tell me that these oncoviruses grow on trees?

    Here is a professional journal paper: Viral Oncology: Molecular Biology and Pathogenesis

    Oncoviruses are implicated in approximately 12% of all human cancers.

    A large number of the world’s population harbors at least one of these oncoviruses, but only a small proportion of these individuals go on to develop cancer.

    The interplay between host and viral factors is a complex process that works together to create a microenvironment conducive to oncogenesis.

    So those oncoviruses come FROM OTHER PEOPLE?

    But only a ‘small proportion’ develop cancer?

    It is clear that there is much to learn, specifically about this crucial ‘interplay,’ between host and viral factors, which is not well understood at all. Which is why people who actually know something ADMIT that they do not have all the answers.

    Except you, I guess? You’re going to ‘teach’ me how viruses cause cancer?

    No friend. I think I have already taught YOU some important things.

    I’m asking you nicely now to stop this useless bullshit here. You are wasting the time of people here, and you are probably wasting your own time—which would be better spent sitting on a psychotherapist’s couch!

    Only 1/10th of those who wanted to get vaccinated in December 2020 did get vaccinated by the end of March 2021. . What did happen to the 9/10th who wanted to be vaccinated but who did not get vaccinated? They had three months to do it. What was holding them back? Answer: All supplied vaccines was used.

    The Levada Center graph shows that the vaccination enthusiasm is waning in 2021 and reaches 25% in June. But still every day of 2021 the enthusiasm for vaccination was no less than 25%, so why less than 12% got vaccinated till the end of June 2021. Why did it take six month to get 12% vaccinated while the demand was at least twice as high during that period?

    By the end of May 33 million double-dose kits of vaccine were produced according to official utterances out of which 15 million were exported. What remained for the domestic use was enough to vaccinate 12.5% of population. What should we conclude? That Kremlin had no intention of vaccinating more than about 12.5%? It could vaccinate more if it reneged of obligations to foreign importers. Did Kremlin take into account that enthusiasm for vaccination would be 12.5% only? They could not! Polls were showing that more than 25% wanted to be vaccinated and furthermore in official pronouncement it was stated that 60% were to be vaccinated by fall 2021.

    So what did happen? First it was the realization that early estimates of production capacity were overestimated by 10-15 fold. The estimates were already rolled back from 30 million to 2 million by the end of 2020 in October 2020 statements (even by Putin). Allegedly the 2 million was produced by the end of December 2020 however in December Sputnik V vaccines were flown from South Korea in three flights to Moscow (within three days) by Asiana airlines.

    Is it possible that Kremlin realizing that it would not be able to meet the domestic demand and its own promises and obligations to foreign countries decided to start campaign of dissuasion? Would that explain why the enthusiasm for vaccination was dropping from 38% in December 2020 to 25% in June 2021? Was anti-vaxxing disinformation ramped up? Was bad mouthing of western vaccines amplified?

    “The idea that Russia cannot manufacture enough vaccine is ridiculous.” – Unfortunately not true. They have serious problems. For various reasons: one of them because the technology is not easily scalable. However they keep claiming that they are overcoming the problems. In total so far they produced enough vaccines to vaccinate 25% of Russians, but they exported large part of it (circa 40%) to meet promises they made to other countries. Now they are reneging on the promises and some countries are upset like Mexico, Guatemala or Iran.

    Initially they hoped to produce 30 million doses by the the end of 2020 but ended up with 2 million only. By the end of June 2020 they produced 36.7 million doses which was an increase by 4 million only since the mid May 2020 when 33 million was claimed. ∆=4 million in 6 weeks does not look impressive.

    In recent article in Moscow Times you can find this:

    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2021/06/29/demand-finally-outstrips-supply-in-russias-vaccination-race-a74371

    Pharmaceutical company R-Pharm — touted as a possible game-changer for the mass production of Sputnik V — started growing cells to produce the vaccine last November, and billionaire owner Aleksei Repik previously told The Moscow Times it would aim to produce 10 million doses a month.

    But the company has yet to release a single batch of the vaccine into circulation, data from a Health Ministry database which logs individual medicine series approved for distribution shows.

    Generium — another of the seven companies approved to produce the jab domestically, and which said it could produce 5-8 million doses a month at full capacity — has not released a batch of vaccines since mid-March.

    But minister Monturov promised that in July:

    “Up to 37 million doses could be produced in July alone, he said: 30 million in Russia and 5 to 6 million abroad. ” Let’s hope he is right this time.

    But again, a reminder, that Sputnik is indeed an adeno-virus vector vaccine just like Astra Zeneca and Johnson and Johnson. The only trad dead virus one available in Europe appears to be the Chinese one (two of them, rather), and only in evil dictatorships like Hungary, Serbia, and Belarus. Russia has its own dead virus CoviVac but isn’t exporting it. India also has one (Bharat Biotech), but it’s only available in places like Iran and Mexico.

    So if I got a flight directly to Hungary I could maybe get a Chinese trad jab there.

    Or, get a test (negative, we hope), fly into Austria (with German passport), and take a train from there to Budapest and get a Chinese trad jab.

    Then travel back to Austria/Germany.

    Would that work?

    Thanks!!

    “COVID is real, Western vaccines are good, Russian vaccines are bad, Russia bad!”

    If Covid is not real for Russian vaccine to be good it must be a placebo, right? So the goodness of Putin and Russia is in their deception, right?

    Oh that’s above my pay grade:)
    Too granular. You have to check out if foreigners can get Hungarian vaccinations, if they have a choice of vaccine, what the protocol is, and so on.
    Also it is quite possible that one of the non-EU neighbors, such as Montenegro or Albania or Serbia or Belarus are in fact easier places to do this. Or the Ukraine. As in enter with a EU id card and do your thing. A few months back Montenegro and Albania were both of the places that still accepted tourists like 2020 never happened. Belarus has recently opened itself up to foreigners explicitly as a vaccination tourism destination, but for Sputnik.

    1) Check which European countries in the EU and neighboring have trad vaccines,
    https://covid19.trackvaccines.org/vaccines/5/
    https://covid19.trackvaccines.org/vaccines/7/
    2) then check “entry of EU nationals” and “vaccination of foreign nationals” in each,
    3) make a shortlist and that’s it.

    Maybe Turkey is also viable.

    And once more, a reminder: while skeptics in globohomo world think Sputnik is better, Russian skeptics think Pfeizer is better. And there maybe even more open skeptics as percentage in Russia than in globohomia. Amusingly, the pro-globohomo liberals in Russia are now leading the pro-Sputnik jab wave, while the based and red-pilled are skeptics. So you never know.

    Compared to all other types, the Chinese trad jab is possibly the most harmless, and also the least idiotic–because “western science” decides it can take “only the needed bit of the virus” and “keep the immune system on the ready to fight it” and other generic feelgood nonsense, while the trad way your body actually gets the virus, not some piece of it, and learns what the actual virus looks like, not some piece of it, whereas with the “fancy western vaccines” that try to do the “train your body to react only to the important bits of the virus”, will have to be topped up constantly as the “important bits” evolve and change. The trad vaccine is “holistic” as in your body learns how to deal with the whole virus, while the new vaccines are “piecemeal”–Science™ has decided your body only needs to learn protein X and that’s it, Science™ knows better.

    That being said, guy I know who works in China said he got the trad jab and instantly developed a lump in a delicate area and had to take antibiotics for a week to get it to disappear.

    Lastly: unless the EU on a federal level accepts the eastern jabs as “real”, getting one won’t really help deal with the bureaucracy there.

    Summary:
    1) If the trad vax is for defense–possibly the most harmless choice. If it’s to get authorities off your back–time will tell if that will work
    2) Treat the vax–any vax–as a getting hit by an external viral force. Therefore before the vax plan for a few days of raising your immune levels through rest and good food and sleep and light exercise, and plan the same for the days right after the vax.

    Ideally people should self-quarantine for 2 weeks after the vax, letting their body “digest” it in peace, but few can afford this.

    Does anyone seriously think that Joe Biden or Kamala could do something like this? I do think Trump could pull it off.

    First you show us the isolated ”virus” according to Koch.
    Ok?
    Then you present papers agreed upon, that virus causes cancer.
    Ok?
    Otherwise, go bathing on the eastern shore of you know what.
    Ok?

    “Russia came into being as a chain of Nordic princedoms that practiced this sort of direct access to their ruler; early Russian princes and Tsars posed themselves as an instance of last appeal and immediate access. Twenty years ago, Vladimir Putin resurrected this ancient practice”

    Preposterous comparison. Both Shamir’s beloved communism and perhaps not so beloved democracy are collectivist peoples dictatorships. With communism being guided by dictators, and demagogues guiding the mobs in a democracy. The Russian masses and mobs, as all mobs regardless of nation are the same slaughtered their ‘princes’ (elites) beastly… and they will not so princely slaughter Shamir’s elites, engineers and doctors too if some new dictator or demagogue declares them the enemy.
    And now they have a strong man daddy of the nation (after Shamir’s beloved daddy of the nation, the dictator Stalin left the building) who has to prevent Russia’s democracy going the same way as the Western one, as democracy has only on way to go.
    Shamir combines a strange sense of realism and myth making. Perhaps communist propaganda can never be undone.., just like the spoon fed myths of democracy are unerasable. Once made a peoples man, always a peoples man?

    Nowhere in this article does Shamir (the Jew, turned ‘Christian’) mention IVERMECTIN, and its’ beneficial (and basically cost-free, because out of patent) use in India, and other third world countries… while the WHO and the CDC, and Fauci’s links and ties, are making billions… while magnetism, fainting, rashes, anaphylactic shock, and death are the only ‘viable’ results of the COVID PRICK.

    [MORE]

    Hmmm. But then again, neither does False Fauci, the British shabbas goyim, and the other monetary whores shilling for making Big Pharma care… for they act as Pharisees, telling the ‘plebs’ that ‘I am science’ while they get filthy rich, AND while still having the ‘trump’ card of ‘plausible deniability’ when the infertility starts, and/or the coming year’s ‘variants’ start KILLING/CULLING people, outright.

    One way or another, the evil satanic *ssholes of the world will have their Georgia Guidestone prophecies come true….. And don’t think the ‘collateral damage’ of the gullible Palestinians…. errr ‘Israelis’ dying from these vaccines don’t mean, (((they))) don’t know. They never did care for their ethnic own… but merely for their own hegemony over the Goyim.

    “If we do a good job on vaccines, health and reproduction, we can reduce the world population by 10-15%. Only a genocide can save the world”.
    That’s right ….Bill Gates.

    Yeah, yeah Bill G isn’t a Jew ‘on the outside. But one can easily be a jew, ‘on the inside’ as St. Paul told us, long ago. Rom. 2:28-9

  267. Not an conspiracy.
    An agreement…like Antarctica
    An agenda
    21 and 2030
    Why,is the real question.
    H1n1 pandemic and vaccine just so happened to coincide aroundthe same time this one does.
    Solar cycle.
    O… climate change is real
    And humanity can’t stop it.
    I don’t think the world powers didn’t know exactly when….i think they know why tho
