The US has been fighting two wars: with Ukraine against Russia, and with Russia against Climate. Both are very costly, both bring no profit to Americans, both are entirely unnecessary, but both are essential for the Biden regime at this time, as the Covid pandemic runs out of steam. How will matters proceed?

The Ukrainian war may have been postponed. Russian troops withdrew from their forward positions on the Ukrainian border to their permanent bases. Perhaps Putin decided that the threat of a powerful Russian response would suffice for Kiev to give up their plans of a Donbas invasion. It was a close call: Kiev artillery shelled Donbas; Russian tanks faced them waiting for the order to roll westward, but the order didn’t come. It is still too close to call. In the last few days, the shelling of Donbas by the Kiev regime has actually intensified. Kiev troops have moved forward to the frontline separating the regime-controlled areas and free Donbas, and they brought with them more of their heavy weaponry. In Donbas, people are in a wretched mood: they feel abandoned by Russia, or rather have returned to the same hell of intermittent shelling they have lived with for years. They haven’t been allowed to join the Russian Federation as they had hoped. In Kiev, they think Putin blinked first. So say the Brits. Prudent Putin does not want war, but he may still get it. What we have now feels like a lull rather than a stable situation.

Europe Defender, one of the largest US Army-led military exercises in decades has kicked off and will run until June. The Russian Defence Minister Mr. Shoygu called upon his troops to stand ready to respond to any “adverse developments” during the NATO exercises; heavy weapons will remain in forward positions, so troop deployment could be fast. In May, Royal Navy ships will pass the Bosporus, while the Russians have moved their missile boats from the Caspian and Baltic Seas to the Black Sea. So there are still plenty of chances for things to go wrong.

Russia’s relations with the US and its minions are as bad they ever were. As bad as in 1962, during the Caribbean crisis? No, but as bad as in 1952, during the Korean War. The United States is an enemy, declared Deputy Foreign Minister Mr. Ryabkov, and such a word has not been used since the Korean War. The US and Britain called Russia their most dangerous enemy, too. Until recently, Putin still believed in the possibility of integrating Russia into the Western world, not as top dog but as a powerful state on a par with Germany or France. The years that have passed have proved to him that this was an impossible pipe dream. He has had to adjust his goals. And besides, the world has changed. There has been a tectonic shift: Russia became stronger; the US antagonised China; the American people are restive and unhappy; Europeans are prisoners in their own homes. In such a world, Russia can’t possibly take US proxy assaults lying down forever.

Relations between Russia and the US have shifted from ‘rivalry’ to ‘confrontation’ and are back to a Cold War level, wrote ex-president Dmitry Medvedev, Russia’s number 2 man, who has been considered a more Western-friendly member of the Kremlin team. Russia has sent the US Ambassador back home ‘for consultations’; he tried to disobey with “Hell, no, I won’t go” but eventually relented and departed to Washington, together with ten expelled US diplomats. Russians also forbade the US Embassy from hiring local staff, receiving visiting diplomats and travelling freely in Russia, making diplomatic ties rather strained.

During this time, the plot to assassinate President Lukashenko and/or kidnap his sons was uncovered in Moscow. The plotters enjoyed CIA support, said the Belarusian president, asserting that his assassination had been authorised at the highest level of the Biden administration. This disclosure drew Belarus closer to Moscow. A year ago Minsk and Moscow were cold-shouldering each other. Lukashenko had good reason to suspect that the Russian oligarchs were involved in the colour revolution in his country. They hoped to remove the stubborn president, then privatise and buy Belarus’ industry, as this republic is the only one that preserved and improved the legacy it inherited from Soviet days. Since then, Lukashenko realised that Putin is not against him and relations have begun to improve.

Bearing that in mind, people waited somewhat nervously for Putin’s annual state-of-the-nation address on April 21, expecting some dramatic announcement, be it war, or the integration of Belarus, or recognition of Donbas; however the address mainly dealt with state help to families with children. Putin played Santa Claus: he congratulated the Russian people on almost beating the pandemic; now we have to be fruitful and multiply, he implied. He also gave Russians ten days of paid holiday starting May 1st, presumably for multiplying at leisure in their summer houses. Practically every established Russian city-dwelling family has a country house for exactly such purposes. This year, Russian Easter Sunday will come on May 2nd, so Russians will get the whole Octave of Easter as a fully paid holiday. The state will cover half of children’s summer vacation costs and give a decent lump sum to each child in time for the next school year, enough to buy proper clothes and books. Holidaying in Russia will be subsidised for all, to offset the difficulty of travelling abroad due to corona restrictions. For those who insist on going abroad, Egypt will be soon be open as a holiday destination.

Such generosity has Russians worried. It reminded them of those restful hours and the shot of vodka their fathers were given before being sent to attack the German lines – a respite before battle. However, Putin didn’t mention the Kiev regime and the Ukraine even once.

He promised severe retribution to whoever crosses red lines, and compared the Czechs and Poles with “Tabaqui [the Jackal] hanging around [the man-eating tiger] Shere Khan, howling to appease their sovereign”. Shere Khan is certainly the US, the great enemy of Mowgli [Russia], the human child in the jungle. Rudyard Kipling has been cancelled in the US for his White Man’s Burden, and Tabaqui did not appear in the US cinematic versions of the Jungle Book, but Russians know the character as it appears in their cartoon version.

The Czech jackals have occasioned much mirth among Russians by claiming that their arms depot was blown up in 2014 by Petrov and Boshirov, the legendary GRU agents of Skripal fame. Hundreds of memes appeared right away, appealing to the Russian sense of humour.

The story of the arms depot is murky; the Czechs said that the depot belonged to a Bulgarian arms dealer who promptly denied the allegation; it appears the weapons were going to be smuggled into Ukraine and Syria to be used against Russia while keeping the Czech provenance deniable. A Russian James Bond would deal with the depot exactly as Petrov and Boshirov allegedly did. But why did the Czechs decide to unveil this old story right now?

There are three possible explanations: (1) It was done in order to remove Russia’s Rosatom from the tender for building the nuclear power plant it was poised to win. Without Rosatom, the $5 Billion budget will probably go to the US company Westinghouse, though it is bankrupt and unable to build the plant. (2) To distract attention from the attempt by CIA-connected plotters to kill or kidnap Belarus President Lukashenko and his family. (3) The Czechs are doing what they were told by their American masters, and theirs is not to reason why.

Whatever the reason, the Czechs expelled 18 Russian diplomats; the Russians responded by expelling 20 Czech diplomats; the Czechs upped the stakes by expelling over 60 Russian embassy staff; the Russians responded by forbidding the Czechs to hire local staff. Now they are considering sanctioning Czech beer, the biggest Czech export to Russia, and possibly Skoda cars. Czechs are likely to sanction Russia by stopping the delivery of high-tech parts. Other East European Tabaquis added to the turmoil. The Poles, Bulgarians, and Baltics expelled a few Russian diplomats; Russia did its tit-for-tat expulsion routine.

A few days ago, Russian Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov went to Teheran and declared that Russia-Iran relations are at an ‘unprecedented’ level. The first fruit of this declaration has been announced. Russian Navy ships will escort Iranian tankers delivering Iranian oil and wheat to Syria. This will prevent Israel or the US from attacking the tankers. Israelis gleefully blabbed that they had sabotaged dozens of Iranian tankers causing immense misery to Syrians. Now it is hopefully over (or maybe not. Or maybe yes).

And just in case Israel won’t take this hint into consideration, there was another hint. A Russian C-200 missile launched by Syrians landed ‘by chance’ near an Israeli nuke factory, the Dimona nuclear centre. Israelis tried to minimise the public impact by concocting an improbable story of an old Syrian ground-to-air missile, launched against an Israeli jet that overflew by some 300 km, falling somewhere in the Negev desert. Syrians and Iranians didn’t object to this explanation and claimed that they just repelled an Israeli air attack. But Israeli social networks revealed that the Israeli public is worried, and rightly so, for the US-made Patriot missile defence system failed to stop the incoming missile. The Russian news agency reported that Russian electronic devices based in Syria had jammed the Israeli missile defence system in 12 districts, thus allowing the missile to reach Dimona. “This was a Russian response to Israeli breaches of our understandings on Syria”, the agency added.

ORDER IT NOW

As for Afghanistan, when the Biden regime decided to postpone its proposed withdrawal of troops until September 11, Russian experts I spoke to are convinced that the US will never leave Afghanistan by its own free will. They will keep in place thousands of private military contractors, and retain their positions in the airports if a need arises to recapture any ground.

And now for the climate war. Putin and Xi had been invited (among others) by President Biden to participate at the virtual Leaders Summit on Climate. (Biden was the only one wearing a mask at the virtual summit.) The Covid pandemic smoothly transforms into Global Warming in the plans of our masters. These plans are so outlandish that unhappy Donbas might as well be on another planet. Among others, they include terminating meat production and switching to producing insects for food. “Agriculture is the biggest driver of global biodiversity loss and a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Farmed insects could help tackle two of the world’s biggest problems at once: food insecurity and the climate crisis”, preached the BBC.

The US top spook (naturally a female; you can’t allow a white male to occupy such an important position unless he is a demented prompter-reader) Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said that climate change has to be “at the center of a country’s national security and foreign policy”. Climate change “needs to be fully integrated with every aspect of our analysis in order to allow us not only to monitor the threat but also, critically, to ensure that policymakers understand the importance of climate change on seemingly unrelated policies.” In plain words, from now on, the CIA will tell policymakers (including kings and presidents, senators and ministers) what they may and may not do. And presumably they won’t be allowed to complain about the American military complex, the biggest single polluter on Earth. Goodbye sovereign states; welcome, one world government!

President Trump (for all his faults) was the last leader of the Free World who tried to fight against the double agenda of pandemic-and-warming. Not surprisingly, he was fraudulently deprived of his high position. Biden is all for Covid and Climate, just like Greta Thunberg. Alas, no leader objects to this agenda. Brazilian President Bolsonaro who bravely spoke against both C&C repented; now he agrees, and even asks to borrow money to better fight global warming.

For Russia, the coldest inhabited country in the world, global warming could only be good (even today, April 25, it’s 2°C in Moscow). Russians are not misled by the US green agenda. “The latest US remark on the green agenda is nothing but blackmail and an attempt to create an environmental and climate screen, and use foreign economic levers to force its partners and clients to pay for modernizing its energy complex”, a top Russian expert said. However, Putin is not the man to go against such a universally accepted agenda. He tries to find a position that will profit Russia and minimise its dangers, while paying lip service to the Biden regime’s demands. Russia is successfully competing against US-supplied LNG [liquefied natural gas] with her own plentiful gas resources. If China is forced to switch from coal to natural gas, Russia will undercut the US and sell her gas to Beijing. Nuclear power plants have no CO2 output, and Russians are the best at nuclear power. Despite overall hostility, Biden welcomed Putin’s contribution to the Green Deal.

At the summit, Putin said Russia has nearly halved its emissions compared to 1990. He didn’t mention that this great achievement had been made by the destruction of the USSR, by the de-industrialisation of Russia and by a huge drop in the living standards of the Russian people. People still shudder when they remember the Nineties with its poverty, and that is what ‘halving of emissions’ means. This is what Biden has prepared for the Americans: poverty, insects for dinner, and workers reduced to delivering packages for Amazon. Perhaps the choice of dying in a nuclear holocaust is not too bad an option.

Mike Whitney recently asked me, why hasn’t Russia’s change from Communist to Capitalist made any difference in Washington’s foreign policy posture? The US is still as relentlessly hostile towards the Russian Federation as it was towards the Soviet Union. It is a good sign. Washington was friendly to Moscow when Boris Yeltsin shelled its own parliament, when Russian scientists sold their belongings in improvised flea markets at railway stations, when Russian girls sold their charms for a few dollars to visiting foreigners – in those days, Russia was popular and loved. Why is Russia treated with such hostility now?

There could be a few answers: (1) The Capitalists think that the spirit of Communism still lives in Russia, unvanquished despite everything. Indeed millions of Russians (more than 60%) say the Soviet Union was good for them; they remember or heard from their parents how socialism once worked for them. (2) For the Core, it does not matter what is the creed of the Periphery. (3) For the Satanic forces, Russia bears the light of Christ. (4) Hegemony will not suffer an independent spirit. You may choose your own answer. Perhaps all the answers are correct.

Russia, despite her efforts to fit into the global agenda, always sticks out. It is the only country in the world where masculinity is not toxic; whites feel no guilt; people eat meat and heat their homes so they are warm; despite the pandemic, theatres and churches are open; there is no #MeToo; Russian producers and directors can frolic with actresses; education and medicine are (largely) free for all. Outside Moscow, even parking is free, if you can find it. You can get vaccinated if you wish, for free, any day, yet nobody forces you to do it. There are no lockdowns, no covid passports, no mandatory masks. It would be a shame if such a country were destroyed.

    Indulge me for posting this one more time. I have played online chess against hundreds of Russian players. They tend toward what chess players call “quiet moves.” (US players, by contrast, are more impetuous, even reckless.) I would add this observation to the list of aspects of Russian culture and character so well stated in the last paragraph of the essay. Whether this observation can be extrapolated to the leaders of the two countries is something I cannot prove, but I suspect that it is so. And by the way, in the post-game chat, a Russian youngster is always polite, never sarcastic or mean.

    The US MIC is just a tool in the hands of the globalist (((elite))) – nothing more. To claim otherwise is equivalent to claiming that immigrant smugglers are in charge of the white genocide project.

    On the global geopolitical stage money is very often not a goal. More often than not power is the real goal with tremendous amounts of money burned in pursuit of it.

  6. Of course the USA and its stooges will attempt to use anthropogenic climate destabilisation to their advantage, as a weapon to subvert all its ‘adversaries’. That does NOT change the reality that the catastrophe is true. Russia may, briefly, enjoy a warmer climate, but when the permafrost melts, a lot of infrastructure will be stuffed, diseases and pest species spread, and neighbouring countries destabilised by climate disasters. Russia could be a renewable energy power far beyond its fossil fuel status, and will have to provide a refuge for climate destabilisation refugees, just as Austfailia will shortly be inundated by millions fleeing an increasingly uninhabitable Indonesia. What Russia needs to do is to lead the fight to restore the Arctic ice-cap and its planetary climate stabilising high albedo ice cover.

    The reason is fairly clear. Russia is in bed with the anti-Christian, German regime of Multi Merkel and her SJW Open Borders conspirators. Christian Visegrad 4 nations that are resisting EU hegemony see the NordStream 2 project as an attempt to back German aggression against the V4.

    Putin’s stance in Belarus and Ukraine makes perfect sense. Further NATO expansion towards Russia is unacceptable. However, his embrace of Germany is inconsistent with that “red line” and thus inexplicable. Germany is the #1 backer and most prominent voice for NATO expansion.

    It would make much more sense for Putin to pull back from German Elite Globalism and work on improving relations with the Christian V4. Long term, strengthening The Dark Heart of SJW Europe is a net negative for Russia and its people.

    The article fails to mention that Jews in America, who own the media and the politicians, dislike Russia because it is not friendly enough to Israel. Neocons are 90% Jews, and they have owned American foreign policy since 1964. America’s Jew masters will not be happy until the U.S. attacks Iran and Russia.

  13. Revenge is a 5th possible answer for America’s anti-Russia behavior: “Blinken was born on November 11, 1925 in New York City, the son of Ethel (Horowitz) and Maurice Blinken.[2][7][8] Blinken and his brothers Alan and Robert were born to a father originally from Kiev (Russian Empire) and a mother also of Jewish heritage.[9]” “His son, Antony Blinken, is the current Secretary of State.[10][11] ”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_M._Blinken

    The Nuland family is of Ukrainian origin too. “Nuland was born Shepsel Ber Nudelman in The Bronx, New York City, on December 8, 1930, to immigrant Ukrainian Jewish parents, Meyer Nudelman (a garment repairman) (1889-1958)[5] and Vitsche Lutsky (1893-1941).[6]”

    Do you see a pattern? Eastern European and Russian Jews are front in center in America’s anti-Russia crusade. Revenge is bittersweet.

    You seriously believe US military will voluntarily leave Afghanistan? What happened to May 1st deadline?
    Biden’s US reneged on 1st May withdrawal to trap Taliban who will soon attack. Then US will have justification to extend its stay “to stabilise the country” or claim to negotiate some new deal with Taliban.

    And what do you mean Israelis/Arabs “making nice with each other…?” You mean Syria/Hamas/Lebanon/Iran sending their diplomats to Jerusalem? Israelis backed by Americans cannot give up their schemes to dominate whole of ME and their agenda for Greater Israel. It won’t happen peacefully.

    “Of course the USA and its stooges will attempt to use anthropogenic climate destabilisation to their advantage”

    The climatard has spoken. The Biden secret attack plan is Global Warming, he is going to fry Russia. lol. 45 years have passed since the planet was supposed to start melting and sinking under the ocean, yet nothing has happened. Putin is trembling in his bear skin boots worrying about Ocasio-Cortez ‘s “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change” hypersonic rockets.

    The real problem is that these climatards claim to be so upset about global warming and “climate destabilization” yet they refuse to do any due diligence into geo-engineering. If they did, they might realize that the west is using these weapons against its own people just like Covid.

    There are 2 interesting developments on the weather warfare front. For weeks there has been a very strange anomaly of a hot spot over Northern Canada. This is what diverted the jet streams down into western Europe and caused the April freezes that have devastated the fruit orchards and even French vineyards. This plays perfectly into the WEF plans for a food revolution, and famine. These jet streams also sent cold into Kansas and the mid west that have completely messed up their spring planting.

    In California the drought hysteria is being driving to a frenzy, they have even started rationing water in Marin County, north of San Francisco. For the last decade the weather warriors have been creating high and low pressure fronts in the Pacific to steer rainfall and heavy winds across the Pacific coast of Canada and the US. So very predictably the MSM has been crowing about another catastrophic fire season facing the west coast. One wonders what new terms they will come up with this year, they have already used “lightening complex”, “Firenado” and many others. Of course we will have live with the insufferable climatards like mudbrain once the secret elites crank up these agenda 2030 mini-holocausts again this summer.

    Last year there were lots of fires in Siberia. We cannot know precisely who or how they were started. Russia has a gigantic 15 MW (IIRC) ionispheric heater near Murmansk. The question is if Putin uses it to support the weather warfare programs of the west, or to block them.

    It is important to note that the Rothschilds made a big move into weather modification about a decade ago. Since then all the central banks have started crowing about “climate change”. BIS, Lagarde, Carney, Powell and Yellen have all stated that they suddenly have a new mandate: preventing Global Warming through the War on Carbon. Clearly, these new mandates come from the same people who are pushing the Great Reset, vaccinations and the Food Revolution.

    This is why it is so important to read the Russian tea leaves when it comes to global warming propaganda. Just as with Covid, it appears that Putin is playing along, but trying to use it to his own advantage. That may be good for Russia, and Russians, but it certainly is not evidence that he gives a damn about the rest of humanity.

    I like the explanation given by Alexander Mercouris.

    He says a shock and awe of events were planned against Russia to happen all at the same time.

    The coup in Belarus, Ukraine offensive, a cyber attack and some big sanctions.

    All at the same time to destabilize the country.

    In the USSR this would have been an act of war , the fact that they expected the Russians to accept all this and not respond is perhaps the biggest revelation on what they are thinking in the state dept.

    I had hoped Mr. Shamir would provide an adequate answer to that pertinent question.
    Instead he disappoints. The real answer is that under drunk Yeltsin JEWISH GANGSTERS (euphemistically called “oligarchs”) managed to rob 60% of Russia’s wealth and were beginning to buy up all media and enter politics. Putin prevented that and restored Russia’s integrity (though alas not fully). Therefore American Jews demonize Putin and try to use the US to crush Russia. The US foreign policy is mainly a function of Jewish criminal ambitions. The (((vultures))) want their Russian carrion back, that is the explanation!

  22. The time has come for everyone to chose his/her camp. It is either concealed slavery under the Western system as heralded by the WEF or free, dignified living under Christian Russia; if confrontation will go nuclear, then whatever the consequences, the tyranny of the hegemon will be destroyed and the world will be saner. Death will reach everyone sooner or later. When the prospect for humanity veers from eating beef to eating insects, with constant nonstop surveillance through digital money and having to yield to the pressures of wokeness and political correctness, dying looks more like a boon than such a frightful prospect. To repeat one great comment on UR, “ there are things worse than dying. Like living to support tyranny.”

    This is probably the only place where a big lie (false flag) would work. You know some HD footage of “taliban” shooting up villages, behead a few foreigners, burn down a school for girls, things that pull on peoples heart that we must press on. Maybe even throw in a tranny execution, for insurance. Afghanistan is too vital to let go. I agree the US will reduce their footprint significantly but not due to any agreements so much as to deny Iran an easy target when a future conflict erupts.

    My money is on tribal mercenaries and a long-term bounty system. Kill a taliban, send pic to one of many numbers plastered on walls and hacked radio signals, get paid via Western Union or PayPal in 3-5 business days. Keep it running for 50 years. Even if all the fighters of the past turned to old men.

  25. “Prudent Putin does not want war, but he may still get it.”
    Yes, events can lead nations into the very war they seek to avoid. This applies to both sides in the Ukraine dispute, NATO and the Russian Federation. Neither side wants war, or is confident it can be won: otherwise one side or other would have started it by now. But neither Washington nor Moscow has full control of how events could unfold, making it far more dangerous than the Cuban missile crisis. It could be started by the disgruntled citizens of Donbas or the government in Kiev for example.

    Huh!!!! So Kiev decides to shell Donbas and Russians just left the border. So much for making claims of bravery and gallantry! The fact is that the whip of sanctions was too much to bear and Russia begged for clemency. America declared a silent victory. Russia folded. I’ve heard that the Smithsonian and Pentagon are fighting over what to do with the hide of a fleshless, vodka dried, dead bear. The former wants a stuffed animal display. The latter wants a nice little rug. The fact is that Biden and Trump won against Russia. And China will soon get in line.

    “For Russia, the coldest inhabited country in the world, global warming could only be good (even today, April 25, it’s 2°C in Moscow).” So true. I commented to a friend in neighboring Estonia that global warming would make Estonia a summer tourist hotspot like Spain. It’s a beautiful country with nice cities and towns but the weather stinks, except for 2 months out of the year. The same goes for Latvia. How great it would be if science could safely alter the weather without causing other problems so these countries could have a few more months of pleasantly warm weather every year. I suppose the weather serves a purpose as it is. When it’s cold outside it encourages more people to stay inside and do constructive things like read, study and work on new ideas.

    Dear Mumblebrain,

    You are so deluded that I hardly know where to start. I think you are in Australia? I have lived there.

    Have you ever asked yourself why almost no one lives in the north west of Australia?
    Have you ever asked yourself why the aboriginals in that area have been largely left alone?

    It is virtually impossible for Indonesians to move to Australia that way. They would be rooted out and sent back in no time at all. In some places, the annual rainfall leads to huge floods. Climbing a tree is not a good idea as that is what poisonous snakes do. 🙂

    If the floods don’t get you, the tides will. Ever wondered why no one has thought of building a place with a nice sea view? I mean, there is no shortage of beautiful sandy beaches in that area.

    The ebb and flow of the largest tropical tides in the world form the beating heart of the Kimberley.

    Surrounding this area and for thousands of kilometers is a giant desert. How many kilometers could these invaders walk before dropping dead?

    I have already debunked your “anthropogenic climate destabilisation” elsewhere. But here is what is happening in Australia. Both NASA and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (Melbourne) are lying.

    NASA GISS Fudges Data, Cooling Turns Into Warming
    Smoke And Deception Blanket Australia: NASA GISS Fudges Data, Cooling Turns Into Warming

    The hottest recorded temperatures in inhabited parts of Australia (NSW) were in the 19th century. By putting up new weather stations in the deserts of Australia, the ABM manages to raise the fake “average temperature”

  31. Another valuable article, Shamir. But why was it necessary to wallow in pop psychology in order to dispose of Whitney’s probably rhetorical question …

    … why hasn’t Russia’s change from Communist to Capitalist made any difference in Washington’s foreign policy posture?

    Haven’t we learned that a global empire built around an obscenely expensive military-industrial contracting scam has an existential need to conjure up and continually cultivate the notion of a powerful foreign threat? Without that figleaf of dubious credibility, the MIC could only be viewed as the primary obstacle to a peaceful and prosperous society.

    Why not just reference the definition of the image of an enemy and ruling structures from Carl Schmitt, who popularized the term Feindbild? The Western empire proved its validity by simply ignoring the dramatic change in the ruling form of its chosen enemy, right?

    Even CIA analysts quit worrying that the dreaded opponent was no longer godless communism but seemingly friendly capitalism when our rulers groked that Russia could be demonized either way. As Edmund Hillary famously said, the challenge was real, simply “because it was there.” In a pinch. invaders from Mars would serve just as well if corporate-government media fould they could market that fantasy to the great unwashed.

    Trump had insisted that Russia’s Strategic Alliance partner China be included in an updated START. Practically within hours of Biden being installed, a five year extension was gifted to both.

    There’s been altogether more chaffing at the energy give-aways. Knocking the US off its perch as the largest energy producer and an exporter was easy enough. But gifting Nord Stream 2 has run into more problems than they anticipated. The Navalny set-piece, functioning to both delay completion until Trump was gone and to ensure Russia’s adherence to the bargain, didn’t do the trick.

    Now Russia is being cajoled into being patient while they compensate Iran for staying on team.

    Not to mention that the split polar vortex has been a recognized concept since about 1975, long before these HAARP stations, when it was attributed to a cooling Earth. Or that it has been recognized in the weather patterns of the Little Ice Age as well. It’s clearly more the result of a cooling planet, associated with the current dearth of sunspots, just like in that Little Ice Age.

    Good point. Those tropical termites pump out an awful lot of CO2 as they digest all that wood they eat.

    The all-time champion of climate-changing organisms, however, were the shellfish. Corals and clams and oysters and so on. We know they make their shells by extracting CO2 from the sea, and ultimately from the atmosphere, and combining it with Calcium to make Calcium Carbonate. When they die, their shells drop to the sea floor to build those giant reefs Miss (not) Mulga is so, so worried about and thus sequester all that CO2 from the atmosphere. And making it unavailable for photosynthesis, by the way.

    We can mostly thank those great coral reefs for the plunge in CO2 concentration from 7000 ppm 500 million years ago to the paltry 350 ppm we had back in the 1940s. We were then but one small halving away from starving all plant life on the continents at least.

    Here is what the Wikipedia has to say about the Ord Irrigation Scheme. It looks like yet another white elephant that Canberra subsidised – the money coming from elsewhere. Like all similar rivers in Australia, drought is a constant threat.

    Until the mid-2010s most reports of the scheme derided its lack of economic return. In 2013, the Wilderness Society estimated that $1.45 billion had been spent on the Ord Irrigation Scheme for a return of 17 cents for every dollar spent. In 2016 the Auditor General for Western Australia reported that “The sustained social and economic benefits underpinning the decision to proceed with this $529 million investment have not been realised. Nor is there a plan to track and assess them.” The Australia Institute reported that “Attempts to develop northern Australia by subsidising capital-intensive industries like irrigated agriculture have a long and unimpressive history. An example is the Ord River Scheme which currently supports just 260 jobs despite $2 billion spent and decades of effort.”. In the late 2010s the possibility of large-scale Chinese investment and the opening of export markets in China gave the Ord Scheme a potential basis for financial sustainability.

    I’ll take you at your word that “the Crimea is booming.” If so, that can’t make the ethnic Russians in the Donbas, who compose half its population, none too happy. Why, since the US-instigated coup of 2014, has Mr. Putin done relatively little to stop the constant shelling?

    As Mr. Shamir reports, the shelling has recently “intensified,” as Putin has withdrawn Russian forces from the border. Its people “are in a wretched mood: they feel abandoned by Russia … They haven’t been allowed to join the Russian Federation as they hoped. In Kiev, they think Putin blinked first.”

    The people of the Donbas have been begging for help from Russia for 7 years now. Didn’t they also overwhelmingly pass a resolution or two seeking to secede from Kiev and rejoin Mother Russia? Why did Putin honor Crimea’s referendum but not theirs? Is it all about keeping their Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol?

    I don’t doubt Mr. Putin is a brilliant man, looking out for the best interest of his citizens, but his motives in saving Crimea, but not Donbas, remain a mystery to me. With the Kiev junta in its infancy in 2014, couldn’t he have have annexed the Donbas at the same time he peacefully did so for Crimea?

    In the meantime, it appears that the “abandoned” people of the Donbas are dying needless deaths. Is this open wound a stain on Putin’s leadership?

    You’re absolutely right. Russia has always been less receptive to Jews than Western countries under the influence of the “Enlightenment”. First Russia banned Jews completely. Then the Romanovs, who were ethnic Germans with a Western mindset, started letting them in, for which they were ultimately rewarded with their mass murder in a Yekaterinburg basement. Lenin, who gave the order, was partly Jewish and Trotsky, a full Jew, seemed poised to succeed him. Stalin ruined their plans for domination of Russia and had Trotsky murdered in Mexico. That’s when Trotskyite American Jews became the neocons. As long as their kind persists, they will be hankering for revenge against Russia and they seem to care nothing if the US suffers a nuclear holocaust in the process of getting them their revenge.

    In Munich, in July 1984, there was a hail storm that damaged 200,000 cars. It was the biggest insurance claim in history at that date. I was in Munich in 1988 – a substantial proportion of the cars were still marked. A much gentler version happened again in Munich more recently.

Czechs are well known for faithfully serving whatever master of the day they have: the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Nazi Germany, the USSR, the US. Giving Washington Politburo some credit (which may or may not be due), it is likely that Czechs were given a vague order to create some kind of scandal for Russia. Czechs then bungled by using a seven-year old explosion of a depot rented by a Bulgarian arms smuggler to keep ammo intended for various bandits. Even though this paints Czechs in the most unfavorable light possible, they have nowhere to run now, like a cornered rat. Expect more bungling from desperate Czechs.

    Here is a very recent CBS News “Climate Watch” special news bulletin, 6 minutes long.

    [MORE]

    https://www.cbsnews.com/video/geoengineering-the-controversial-climate-change-solutions-we-just-might-need/#x

    At 2:50 the climatard starts talking about the “climate community” using solar engineering by means of atmospheric spraying. He says that this method is cheap and how it can change the weather, even unilaterally. He even admits that the weather could be changed by a rich person (Bill Gates, George Soros or even Evelyn Rothschild).

    Interestingly, the infographic he uses actually shows a ship releasing ship tracks to help magnify the effect of the atmospheric spraying. This is precisely how they set up low and high pressure zones off of the Pacific coast of the USA to steer the moisture that should hit the sierras to create rains. For over a decade they have been screwing with these systems to create hot and dry spells with high winds. Then through various means like artificial lightening storms, deliberate transformer explosions, DEW’s or even arson, they ignite entire fronts of wild fires. Every year now it has become a regular occurance, and if you bother to observe the areas where these fires are created they almost always correspond to a special agenda 21 or agenda 2030 goal.

    One aspect of this weather manipulation is that it has been used intensively in Australia for several years. All these waves of wild fires in NSW are created in precisely the same way they are in California. Many California climatards have become as brain dead as those from Australia because they refuse to acknowledge that geo-engineering, climate manipulation and even climate warfare are going on.

    I never manage to ‘observe data’, it bores me, makes me want to add something imagined to my advantage to it. I do this even when I look at the actual numbers on my bank account, while the predictions related to additions and subtractions are never to the contrary as expected. Even as a self-employed worker my clients receive imaginative inaccurate invoices, depending on the mood, always to my advantage, too high, or too low depending on my egoistic or allegedly altruistic mood of the day based on a imaginative construct of plenitude of resources still available.
    I entertain the idea that this is what most all people do when, as they say, they are ‘observing data’, collecting and delivering ‘data’, never handle something all too crudely naked and accurate. One must retain a considerate amount of un-concernednesss of accuracy, of which the latter by the way is the preferred way of rigid schoolmasters which nobody wants to date.

    This is I guess based upon my philosophy of the science of imagination based highly flexible lenience, which in my case leads to a type of forgery which is hopefully positively constructive, without victimizing anyone. This again is based upon the existence of the nervous system, which cannot be turned on and off at will and must necessarily swing to produce either sympathy or antipathy, or to produce an uninspiring and undesired state of apathy.

    “if cyclones form from areas of warm sea water, then I imagine that if there was an unnatural way of warming the surface of an area of water then perhaps a cyclone may be generated at will. “

    By my limited understanding, heating the water would require far too much energy. The cyclones are created by the interaction of warm water, warm air and cold air. What they do is steer warm or cold air to be in the correct position to create or magnify the cyclone. One of their methods is to spraying aluminum and other particles in the ionosphere, then heat them up with nexrad or haarp, causing the air to expand, and this way they can create a high pressure area that they use to steer winds and even jet streams. In this manner they can kick off a cyclone or hurricane, and, assuming certain other parameters like water, barometric pressure and ambient temperature are suitable, increase its energy by diverting the proper mass of air at the proper temperature into the correct position.

    Once they get the hurricane or cyclone created, then, assuming there is suitable temperatures, pressures and air masses available, they can steer these storm fronts and send them into place for whatever purpose they currently have planned. Of course it takes years of trial and error to perfect the technology. For several years running sequential hurricanes have been sent in over the gulf to Texas, and then parked for days in one place. This is completely abnormal, especially over land.

    There are also hyped up hurricanes and tropical storms that hit with precise timing to divert the news from some scandal or another. I remember one particularly crass case where a giant hurricane was supposedly going to smash into southern California and flood the entire state. This was right when Hillary was running against Trump and had had several seizures and other weird incidents. The storm ended up parking off of the California coast for a few days, monopolizing the news headlines, and then as the scandals died off so did the massive storm front.

    When one understands that the Rothschilds bought out the weather channel and weather central several years ago, then the puzzle pieces start fitting together. The news media are used to amplify, or reduce, these storm fronts at the same time and syncronized with weather modification technology is.

    it appears that the “abandoned” people of the Donbas are dying needless deaths. Is this open wound a stain on Putin’s leadership?

    A bit of perspective is sometimes useful. If you look at the website of Lugansk or Donetsk, you will find that almost no civilians gets killed. For both Lugansk and Donetsk, the total dead from bombarments is much less than 50 per year. Fewer than those who die in car accidents.

    Lugansk Media Centre
    Donetsk News Agency

    Here is a sample of the news:

    Donetsk, April 26 – DAN. Employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate of the DPR Ministry of Internal Affairs registered more than 400 traffic violations over the weekend. This was announced today by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

    “In the period from April 24 to April 25, 2021, the traffic police revealed 415 traffic violations, including 31 cases of driving in a state of intoxication. There were two road accidents with the injured, in which one person died, five were injured, ”it was reported.

    It is specified that on Saturday in the Kirovsky district of Makeyevka, the driver of the PAZ-320302 bus, who was traveling on route No. 7, lost control of control. As a result, he drove to the right side of the road and crashed into a metal post, injuring five passengers. On Sunday, in the Petrovsky district of Donetsk, a Lexus ES300 hit a tree. The driver died at the scene.

    In the event of an open war, many thousands would die per day. The present casualty rate is perfectly acceptable IMHO. It is a small price to pay for delaying WW3. That is the way Putin and his advisors look on matters.

    the big question would be how much funding has that person got access to and can they put their theory into practice.

    You never get more energy out than you put in. So the energy required to generate a hurricane has to be roughly equal to the energy incorporated into its winds.

    Now the energy of a hurricane is often estimated in terms of megaton hydrogen bombs. Quite a few of them for the big hurricanes, I think.

    Put another way, ask yourself how much heat is required to evaporate the gazillions of tons of water needed to produce say a hundred inches of rain over an area the size of Texas. At 540 cal/gm, the latent heat of evaporation.

    How many nuclear power plants? I’m not even going to try. It’s boggling my mind.

    “Czechs are well known for faithfully serving whatever master of the day they have: the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Nazi Germany, the USSR, the US”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prague_Spring

    “On the night of the invasion the Czechoslovak Presidium declared that Warsaw Pact troops had crossed the border without the knowledge of the ČSSR government, but the Soviet Press printed an unsigned request—allegedly by Czechoslovak party and state leaders—for “immediate assistance, including assistance with armed forces”.[57] At the 14th KSČ Party Congress (conducted secretly, immediately following the intervention), it was emphasized that no member of the leadership had invited the intervention.[58] More recent evidence suggests that conservative KSČ members (including Biľak, Švestka, Kolder, Indra, and Kapek) did send a request for intervention to the Soviets.[59] The invasion was followed by a previously unseen wave of emigration, which was stopped shortly thereafter. An estimated 70,000 citizens fled the country immediately with an eventual total of some 300,000.[60]

    Until recently there was some uncertainty as to what provocation, if any, occurred to make the Warsaw Pact armies invade. Preceding the invasion was a rather calm period without any major events taking place in Czechoslovakia.[30]

    In Czechoslovakia, especially in the week following the invasion, popular opposition was expressed in numerous spontaneous acts of nonviolent resistance.[61] Civilians purposely gave wrong directions to invading soldiers, while others identified and followed cars belonging to the secret police.[62] On 16 January 1969, student Jan Palach set himself on fire in Prague’s Wenceslas Square to protest against the renewed suppression of free speech.

    When Czechs resist the Red Rapist Army, the Putin Putas pretend it didn’t happen. When the Czech’s throw out Russian spies, the Putin Putas claim that Czechs have no independent spirit and just do what they are told.

    ““Putin’s maternal grandfather was a Jew involved in the bolshevik revolution, his paternal grandfather worked all his life as the chef of Lenin and Stalin. His paternal grandfather, Spiridon Ivanovich Putin (1879–1965), was employed at Vladimir Lenin‘s dacha at Gorki as a cook, and after Lenin’s death in 1924, he continued to work for Lenin’s wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya. He would later cook for Joseph Stalinwhen the Soviet leader visited one of his dachas in the Moscow region. Spiridon later was employed at a dacha belonging to the Moscow City Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, at which the young Putin would visit him.

    His other grandfather was a jew from a Ukranian village and a bolshevik activist.
    Putin was put into power by the Federation Of Jewish Organizations In Russia. The Jewish Chairman of this organization Abramovich stated in a 2005 interview that Putin could obtain Israeli citizenship if he wanted as an ethnic Jew. And that his mother was a Jew Shelomova. This makes Putin full Jewish by Jewish law.“”

    “You never get more energy out than you put in. So the energy required to generate a hurricane has to be roughly equal to the energy incorporated into its winds.”

    That is not true. There is plenty of potential energy available in the difference between hot and cold and low pressure and high pressure, the key is triggering and directing a state change. Achieving this with a minimum of energy and cost is precisely the art of weather control. I am certain that the people who are doing this derive immense satisfaction by harnessing the butterfly effect to create a massive storm by using only a small input of energy.

    This is performed in 3 dimensions, and this is why weather manipulation of the ionosphere is as important as ship tracks released at sea level. Altering the jet streams could very easily cause storms at lower levels that contain masses of energy far exceeding the electricity emitted in the nexgen or haarp em arrays.

    Another way of illustrating this is Bill Gates plans to spray chalk dust in the sky in order to produce “solar dimming”. The amount energy required to spray this stuff is a mere fraction of the energy that will be blocked from reaching the surface of the planet. Likely, that heat will be concentrated at a high level in the atmosphere where the chalk is located. I can imagine that this would be perfect for creating lighting storms and even hail storms.

    Weather as a Force Multiplier:
    Owning the Weather in 2025

    Executive Summary
    In 2025, US aerospace forces can “own the weather” by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications. Such a capability offers the warfighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map.

    A high-risk, high-reward endeavor, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. Some of the potential capabilities a weather-modification system could provide to a war-fighting commander in chief (CINC) are listed in table 1.
    Technology advancements in five major areas are necessary for an integrated weather-modification capability:
    (1) advanced nonlinear modeling techniques,
    (2) computational capability,
    (3) information gathering and transmission,
    (4) a global sensor array, and
    (5) weather intervention techniques.
    Some intervention tools exist today and others may be developed and refined in the future

    But to determine whether those ship tracks are causing what are described as atmospheric rivers bringing rain into the Sierras is somewhat more complicated. You would have to explain why those rivers seem most pronounced in some years and not even existent in others. You would have to show the the normal, historical established drought/flood cycle in California changed drastically with the rise of Chinese manufacturing after Clinton.

    I have proven to you how the ABM is lying and using this homogenizing nonsense to reduce temperatures in the past and raise more recent temperatures. You are spouting drivel without presenting any data.

    Indonesia will remain a far more livable place than 90% of Australia for a few more centuries at least.

    Australia imports over 80% of its oil – mostly as refined products. Any interruption to the supply and Australia will return to the aboriginals. Per capita, Australians are among the biggest users of oil in the world. A totally unsustainable state of affairs.

    Read and learn what the MSM is not telling you directly. Australia is forced to import oil from places like Azerbaijan and Gabon – look at a map and see where they are – places with declining production.

    Thanks for the reply – I seldom get one . We are talking about two different situations. First the People of Crimea voted to go back to Russia – Russia did not vote to take back the Autonomous Republic, so this needs to be cleared up – Internationally as well. Autonomous Republic is the key here and the Crimeans did try, and did renounce their Ukie ownership in the 90s. Kiev instantly replaced the Simferopol Gov. with their Mafia boyz and they were here, up until the vote. Pravda
    Donbass is more complicated and never should have been attached to Ukraine, as other parts – also- after the Soviet break-up. Yeltsin had even started to discus the Ukie borders . but something interfered with his completing the border moves. My hunch was he was still listening to the cut throat Americans or was compromised etc etc etc. Donbass does have Russian backing, passports and can fall back to Russia for work, arms, etc. but your guess is as good as mine, when it comes to what the Kremlin is thinking in regards to them. My guess is that Russia is biding time, and keeping their country moving in a positive direction, staying out of any heavy wars, and hoping the Western states fail enough to be exposed, for what they really are – No F..n Good. I’m sure Russian military will be back, but Donbass militia is no push over when it comes to fighting – ask the 5-10,000 dead Ukie soldiers about this. I was for taking Donbass back in 2015/16 but the cards didn’t play out that way. And I’m not the one in charge – luckily – lol Spacibo FoW

    PCR has been critical of Putin’s passivity in the face of constant US aggression ever since the Maidan coup.

    PCR is sitting at his comfortable desk on the other side of the Atlantic. Putin has access to far more information than any of us – more real information than the Americans have. Ukraine is full of Russian-speakers and sympathisers. People who detest the alien Jews and their lackeys who control the country.

    Ukraine is not Putin’s responsibility. The more the people in Ukraine suffer, the less sympathetic they will be to their tormentors – the West. Time is on his side. Putin is responsible for Russian lives.

    Frankly, PCR has no idea what a real war is like. Putin does. The input from his advisors shows that in a real conflict, there is a good chance that Washington and Moscow will turn to radioactive dust.

    Those in control of Washington are mentally unhinged. It is even difficult to tell who is in charge. There are multiple bureaucratic conflicts going on at the highest levels in Washington. Putin must be very careful lest he trigger WW3. For me, that seems a sensible approach. Each day without such a conflict is to be treasured. 🙂

    Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Russia has sought to integrate into the global economy. It is the largest country in the world and contains enormous untapped mineral and fossil fuel wealth. The USA seeks global domination, that Hitler only dreamed of, through control of food like grains and potatoes, fossil fuel, a dollar based global economy and when all else fails the use of largest military force on the planet by far. Through control of the IMF and World Bank and their harsh austerity demands, the USA has succeeded in Bankrupting many third world nations.

    The USA, using the advise of Larry Summers and Associates, advised Russia under Yeltsin, on how to become a Capitalist Society. The Russian economy collapsed and a drunken Yeltsin turned the Presidency over to Putin in tears. Putin is very popular inside Russia because he quickly improved the economic situation for the average Russian which had become increasingly dire under Yeltsin.

    As a former KGB agent, Putin has exhibited a propensity to initiate personal vendettas against not just political, but personnal enemies, though I doubt he has killed or tortured as many people as the CIA. The greatest polluter, contributor to global warming and killer of human beings in the world is the US military. So there is a lot of the pot calling the kettle black going on in both countries.

    In any event Russia under Putin and China under Xi act independently of the USA and present an unmanageable threat to total global domination by the USA. The USA is not in a position to control China or Russia, yet it is foolishly name calling and sabre rattling against both. This probably serves as a continuous distraction from the persistent decline in the standard of living for the average American that outsourcing of jobs inevitably leads to. Marx’s class war is alive and well and the rich are winning big time. One administration at a time, the necessary socialist revolution to correct this problem continues to be delayed.

    “Defunding” the US military budget is far more important than “defunding” the police. Biden’s infrastructure proposal is a small step in the right direction. Even Trump recognized that.

    The leading cadres of the Communist party in the postwar period [of Hungary] were Jews, who completely dominated the regime until 1952-53. Then a series of purges, stemming in part from Stalin’s anti-Semitism eliminated many of them…. The top membership of the new Communist regime, including the secret police, during its first years was almost entirely Jewish.

The vehicle was decorated with a flag that had a ‘Wolfsangel’ on it – a historic heraldic symbol, which had also been used by the Nazis as an insignia for several SS divisions.

The rocket crossed the paths of 12 batteries of the Israeli “Iron Shield” – without being intercepted. That could only be because the Russians used electronic warfare to disable the Israeli defenses. 🙂

    Alfred,

    I concur that Merkel is not Germany, but you miss the key point. Rewarding CDU/CSU authoritarianism with NordStream 2, strengthens the hand of of the Merkel-Nuland Integration Alliance.

    Predicted NordStream 2 completion dates have been offered by the Nulandistas for several years. I will not believe the Integrationist fantasies have won until the gas actually starts flowing. Even if the physical pipe is finished, those opposed to Merkel-Nuland Integration will launch regulatory challenges blocking usage of the system for months, possibly years or permanently.

    PEACE 😇

    Putin is friendly to Jews. I am not saying that is a sign of weakness. Why would you even assume that???

    The military and economic connections between Russia and Israel are pervasive. Putin paid for the funeral of his childhood German teacher, who was a Russian Jew living in poverty in Tel Aviv when she died.

    Please don’t distort my words or read into them things that are not there.

    As for Iran, Russia has allowed Israel free reign in Syria to destroy Iranian installations. It’s a cynical game for sure, but don’t mistake Russia’s missile attack near Dimona for a breach in relations.

    Actually, it was you who missed the key point, namely, the parading of self-proclaimed neo-nazis (Banderites) in a country captured by sanctimonious ‘holobiz survivals.’

    The triumphal Kievan march under a flag with a ‘Wolfsangel’ on it is a great illustration of Zionism’s perfidy. The holobiz was and is a profitable schema exploiting the moral norms of western civilization. The Kagans’ clan has zero respect for victims of WWII; your own response is in want of decency.

    As “Alfred” (#177) wrote, “a strong Germany that is in partnership with Russia is the nightmare of the Globalists.” https://asiatimes.com/2021/02/russia-holds-the-key-to-german-sovereignty/

    Rabid Atlanticists argue that non-entity Navalny is directly related to Nord Stream 2. Nonsense: Navalny was built by the usual suspects as a battering ram to undermine Nord Stream 2.

    The reason is that the pipeline will consolidate Berlin at the core of the EU’s energy policy. And that will be a major factor in the EU’s overall foreign policy – with Germany, at least in theory, exercising more autonomy in relation to the US.

    So here’s the “dirty” secret: it’s all a matter of sovereignty. Every geopolitical and geoeconomic player knows who does not want a closer Germany-Russia entente.

    As “Alfred” (#177) wrote, “a strong Germany that is in partnership with Russia is the nightmare of the Globalists.”

    The problem is that the proposed action, completing the Merkel-Nuland Integration Pipeline (a.k.a. NordStream 2):

    • Weakens Christian Germans (and other Christian nations)
    • Strengthens the Nulandistas

    What Putin will achieve by pipeline kowtowing to the SJW Elites is a strong Globalist Germany that *opposes* Russian interests.

    If Putin wants to strengthen Christian Germans, his obvious option is to strengthen other Christian EU states, such as Hungary, that would oppose the CDU/CSU Nulandistas in Germany.

    Germany, at least in theory, exercising more autonomy in relation to the US.

    This quote misidentifies the true locus of power. Mutti Merkel and her European SJW’s are the center of Elite Globalism. The weak Harris/Biden regime is a mere appendage. Completing the pipeline will liberate German Elites from the limited restraints currently on them, imposed by energy resources flowing through Christian nations. The result would be more authoritarian Globalism and expanding SJW aggression.

    Putin’s plan will unshackle the Dark SJW Heart of Globalist Europe and turn it lose against Christianity, including Orthodox Russia.

    PEACE 😇

    Leaders of Jobbik accuse Israelis of plotting to buy up large parts of Hungary, and have repeatedly cited comments by former Israeli president Shimon Peres in which he praised Jews for buying property in Hungary. …

    It’s already been done. Same with Czech Republic and Poland. Seems to be part of the parasite’s life cycle. Ruin the economy through political and monetary control then buy it back during the ensuing “Depression”.

    Neither do you, Alfie. You produce crude lies and misrepresentations from the fossil fuel and Rightwing controlled and financed denialist industry. You are either too stupid to see that you are being duped, or are an active collaborator in that omnicidal campaign, one that will get its comeuppance once the plebs wake up to their fate. Early winter one year, late the next, recod summer temperatures last year in Siberia with virtually no snow in Moscow, this year record snow. These are all signs that the climate has been forced by greenhouse emissions into a chaotic, unstable, state that will destroy humanity. Enjoy your Pyrrhic victory.
