After “parties not-so-unknown” bombed the Nordstream gas pipeline, Anthony Blinken celebrated the “tremendous opportunity.” He assumed the whole Nordstream operation was out of commission. That would have given US producers the chance to make billions of dollars robbing Europe blind selling overpriced gas.

But Blinken may have celebrated too soon. According to Bloomberg News:

After the suspected sabotage of the network last week in a series of explosions, Gazprom said on Monday three of the lines were affected and one wasn’t. The gas giant has lowered pressure on the unaffected line B of Nord Stream 2 to inspect the link for damage and potential leaks, it said in a statement on its Telegram account.

An Unz Review commenter explained:

“The vaunted US Navy screwed up. In the murky depths of the Baltic Sea they planted their explosives to blow up the ***FOUR*** pipes of the NS 1 & NS2 gas pipelines. (You didn’t know there were four pipes, did you? Neither did I.) But they appear to have screwed up and placed two of the explosive packages on one of the NS2 pipes — line A — leaving the other pipe — line B — with no explosive charge, and subsequently ***NO DAMAGE***. Line B is therefore ***READY TO GO*** with a capacity of 27.5 billion cubic meters per year … which for comparison is 50% of total capacity of Nordstream 1, which as you may recall was recently reduced to 20% capacity before being shut down completely. (2.75 times the capacity of the newly-opened Norway-to-Poland gas pipeline).”

So if Germany gets annoyed at the arrogant American terrorists’ attempt to loot and wreck their economy, all the Germans have to do is cancel their sanctions on Russia and ask Putin to turn on the spigot, which could cause NATO to quickly unravel. If that happens, the Nordstream terror attack will turn out to be one of the worst own goals in strategic history.

Even if this worst-case scenario (from the US perspective) fails to quickly materialize, the botched Nordstream bombing could rebound disastrously against the perpetrators. Cutting Germany’s Russian gas lifeline and replacing it with inadequate quantities of overpriced US gas may have sounded like a good idea in the short term, since it will butress the dollar against the euro and keep the EU tethered to its US vassal status, cut off from the vast resources of Russia. But over the medium term, as non-Western nations continue to gain ever-greater shares of global GDP while the West declines, sabotaging the economy of your biggest vassal seems self-defeating, even in the unlikely event that the Europeans never decide to push back.

The Nordstream terror fiasco takes its place in a long series of stunningly stupid moves by the world’s erstwhile hegemon. The US could have thrived in the post-Cold-War environment by making win-win deals with all major nations and civilizations. Instead, as Putin observed in last week’s speech, it has managed to alienate most of the world with its psychopathic arrogance and blood-splattering vandalism. By looting Russia and pushing NATO eastward in the 1990s, launching a false flag war on Islam in 2001, and more recently alienating Russia, China, Iran, and the whole Islamic world simultaneously, the strategic geniuses running America’s national security state seem to be deliberately creating the mother of all anti-Western coalitions.

Does the Empire harbor a secret death wish? Is unconscious guilt (at betraying the American Republic and mass murdering millions abroad) driving the national security brain trust to self-destruct? Maybe. But first let’s consider two other explanations, one obvious, the other conspiratorial.

First the obvious one: The permanent US national security state has been absolutely corrupted by absolute power. When the Cold War ended and the US emerged as a unipolar hegemon, the managers of empire started to believe “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.” That’s hubris at best, psychosis at worst. They started to think they could get away with just about anything. Such delusions of grandeur unleashed a feeding frenzy among those who gorge themselves at the military-industrial-complex trough. Corruption and incompetence danced off together in a self-reinforcing positive feedback loop. Nobody had to worry much about the real-world consequences of bad decisions, because “we” lived in “our own reality” of apparent omnipotence.

But US policy has been so conspicuously self-destructive that it’s hard not to wonder whether it might be intentional. Could some hostile power have taken over the American brain and driven the nation to self-destruction, the way toxoplasmosis parasites take over the brains of mice and make them fall in love with cats?

The nation poised to gain the most from self-defeating US policies is China. Whoever decided to export American manufacturing to China, then waste more than $7 trillion fighting Muslims for no particular reason, then pick a fight with Russia in Ukraine, might as well have been a Chinese sleeper agent. Even the belated anti-China trade war launched in 2019, followed by the apparent COVID attack on Wuhan, were so insanely ineffective that they could easily have been scripted by a CCP version of Dr. Fu Manchu.

But there is no evidence that the CCP is secretly running US foreign policy. If there is a toxoplasmosis type parasite steering Uncle Sam’s brain, it would be the Zionist neocons. These people are drunk on Leo Strauss’s self-styled philosophy of evil. The whole notion of win-win give-and-take diplomacy and negotiation is foreign to them. They never met an act of extreme imperial chutzpah they didn’t like. From 9/11 and the wars it was designed to spark, to the 2014 de facto declaration of war on Russia through the coup in Kiev, to the late autumn 2019 COVID attack on Wuhan and Qom, to the recent blundering attempt to take Nordstream permanently off-line, the neocons keep doing insane things ostensibly designed to strengthen the US empire, but covertly undermining it.

Are the Zio-cons scheming to destroy the US and then dominate the New World Order that arises from its ashes? Or are they merely so unhinged and fanatical in their pro-US-imperial hubris that they keep doing insanely counterproductive things?

  4. gay troll [AKA "Sue Dunham"] says:

    So first the news was full blown sabotage, and the reaction was “the US obviously did it”; now this is walked back to half blown sabotage, and the reaction is still “the US obviously did it”. C’mon, I know most Unz contributors have nothing better to do than react to headlines and flatter Ron’s editorial kinks, but y’all can be so premature. If only half the pipes were destroyed, that’s double the reason to suspect it was a false flag stunt by Russia itself. Or maybe it was a joint NWO operation, a compromise. War is a racket, and both arms of the Hegelian dialectic are coming to give the world a bear hug.

    Putin had eight years to launch an offensive against the CIA backed neo Nazis in Ukraine. But he delayed and delayed until a moment in time when his action only served to distract from a massive global scandal: the danger and ineffectiveness of the experimental COVID vaccines that had been mandated worldwide.

    Putin didn’t end COVID; on the contrary his shenanigans are still providing a cover for global medical fascism. Russia’s SARS2 vaccines encode the same deadly spike protein as the mRNA jabs. And they are still mandatory for large parts of the population, including the Russian military.

    Fuck you Putin, if you had delayed your special military slog for just one more week we could have witnessed the anti vaxx trucker convoy that had previously paralyzed Canada (and exposed Trudeau as a dictator) descend upon Washington DC for round 2. That would have been some actual accountability for the NWO. But instead you saved the Swamp from that fate, like the independent patriot that you are.

  10. @Notsofast

    It boils down to only two: USA, either directly or through its proxies, and Russia. The first obvious answer is the United Empire. But wait.

    The resultant situation is that now Germany is presented with two choices: 1. remove the sanctions and open NS- 2B, or 2. go along, import the hugely costly American LNG, and go bankrupt and get de-industrialised, or beg Poland and Ukraine to reopen the land-based pipelines (Yamal, etc).

    German de-industrialisation need not be all to the benefit of America; a large number of German industries may relocate to Russia and China too.

    Now, can we say Russia absolutely had no interest in blowing 3 of the 4 pipelines, when the results are very much to its liking?

  11. the strategic geniuses running America’s national security state seem to be deliberately creating the mother of all anti-Western coalitions.

    And that’s the point. Talmudic hatred gone wild: it is always always always: let’s you and him fight

  12. Ktulu says:

    This apparent failure to successfully blow up all four pipelines alignes very well with the theory of one Mr. Tom Luongo who claims that EU aligned globalists may have bombed the pipes or encouraged the neocons to have bombed the pipes in order to turn European public opinion against the U.S. heavily and attempt to continue the globalism project from Europe, since according to the same man’s theory the Fed, ECB, NeoCons, and WEF globalists are all currently fighting an internal war within the western empire for who gets to rule the ashes. The reality is probably nobody, internal division is the most certain sign of defeat, but perhaps we should all be more reluctant to just scream “America did it” as much as it is cathartic to say.

  13. MA says:

    Mr Barett , nice writing, answer to your question is provided by Noble Quran as follows:
    “And when We desire to destroy a city(population,people), We command its men who live at ease, and they commit ungodliness therein, then the Word is realized against it, and We destroy it utterly.
    Quran 17:16, Chapter Bani Israel Ayat 16

    “They devised a scheme and God devised a plan and God is the Best Planner”

    Quran 3:54

  14. SafeNow says:

    This mission failure reminds me of the failed helicopter rescue mission to free the hostages in Iran, The investigation concluded that the failure had multiple causes. One cause was a lack of helicopter pilots specifically trained in low-level flying at night over the desert. I am sure that the current failure had multiple causes. I wonder if one of these was a lack of divers and other specialists who had been specifically trained in pipeline demolition. They had eight months to do such training, dating back to Biden‘s pledge and the invasion. Whatever the failures were, one should not blame the Navy divers themselves. Of course the mission should not have existed in the first place.

  15. Ghali says:

    Sorry, Gavin. The capacity of the newly-opened Norway-to-Poland gas pipeline is only 3 billion cubic meters per year, which makes it zilch compared to NS1 and NS2. Also, gas is not guaranteed every year. It might have difficulty finding it next year.

  16. “Putin had eight years…” It’s not that simple.

    After the near fiasco defending Abkhazia from the corrupted Georgians, the Russian government realized that their military was severiously in need of a major upgrade. So they went to work, reformed the military, developed new doctrines and at the same time went into overdrive to produce immense quantities of artillery shells and rockets with which they have destroyed almost the entirety of Ukraine’s professional army and essentially demolished their airforce.

    Then we must never overlook the #1 game-changer: Hypersonic missiles. One single such weapon, kinetic rather than nuclear, precisely targeting the Rottenchild bank in City of London, would come closer than any other action in bringing the War of the Worlds right on down to the spider’s lair.

    If the U$$A and Perfidious Albion resort to the use of nuclear weaponry in order to resurrect their little scheme of taking down the RF by means of their Kievan puppet regime; the cooler heads in the Pentagon would have been overwhelmed by the 4-Star brown-noses, together with the Agency and the Neocons.

    Should that horrendous event occur, those hypersonic weapons, nuclear armed in response to a Western first strike, would totally destroy the attackers. Meanwhile, having long prepared the most intensive and extensive civil defense system on the planet, together with their world-class air and missile defense system, would mean that a significant proportion of the Russian population would survive.

    Meanwhile, without even resorting to a massive use of nukes, a single EMP explosion, high in the ionosphere above the center of our ruptured republic; would wipe out the entire electricity grid.

    Try to imagine the Mad-Max chaos across the fruited plain if the entire country lost power. No direct nuclear attack, mind you. The megalopolitan areas would experience megadeath. Some countryfolk might survive.

    I suspect that not unlike Rome nepotism is partially responsible for bringing the U.S. to this sorry state of affairs. Powerful families have children, and frequently children are not as intelligent and capable as dad or grandad that amassed the family fortune. I think biologist call it regression to the mean. So these not too bright offspring assume the reigns of power and mostly screw things up. And, as the author mentioned, hubris plays a big part. And no doubt delusion of a sort that makes those accustomed to power think they will always have it and the entire World must bend to their will.

    But there does seem to be a few constants in their madness. The most obvious is their penchant for war which fuels the big machine. And another seems to be the desire to depopulate the planet. I believe it is this end that causes them to push their homosexual agenda. They want to convert everyone they can to being queer because fags don’t reproduce. That is the only reason I can think of for the big push toward faggotry. I can’t believe for one minute that our government cares about fags or women’s rights or any other damn thing save for their own welfare. All of it is simply a means to an end.

    And of course this brings us to the Covid-19 farce. I suspect it must be another depopulation agenda because in the very beginning I recall Como sending covid patients to old folks homes. To me this really let the cat out of the bag that the goal was to kill people. And what better group to kill than useless old people that were overtaxing the social security system? I also have to think that perhaps Como was trying to score points for initiative and got himself in trouble because as I said sending covid patients to old folks homes was as blatant as a whore’s wink. And shortly after this Como was replaced. Smart boy got a little too big for his britches and got tossed out on his ear. I mean people are stupid but sending Covid patients to old folks homes? Too obvious, even for the sheep.

    And I would be remiss to mention Covid without addressing the so call vaccine. A vaccine that’s not really a vaccine but a type of genetic therapy. What the real goal of this experiment I cannot say for sure. It may be no more sinister than greed and a complete disregard for people’s safety. But I suspect it is darker than even that. People are dying mysteriously all over the World and the big tell is the fact that many young people are dropping dead. Almost daily you can find a story of someone that went to get the shot and dropped dead, sometimes only minutes after the injection. To me that is pretty blatant and I suspect the negative health effects from this are going to be with the people that took the vax for years to come. Was it all a planned depopulation agenda that we are going to see unfolding over the next few years? I suspect so but only time will tell.

  19. Yet another game-changer? Just now checked out the Rense site and came upon some photos from the belgorod area of Russia of strange golden glows high in the skies above that city.

    In an update, the Hal Turner radio show, featured on that Rense link, posited that these events occurred above several other centers in Russia and they were Russia’s PERESVET laser anti-satellite weapons systems in operation.

    Turner’s report further claimed that he had information from “inside” sources within the U$$A operations centers, that satellite observations of events and moves in Russia had just become blanked-out.

    I’m somewhat skeptical about this report. However, at the same time it is not something that can be automatically and axiomatically ruled out as a possible situation.

    Stay tuned, there may be further updates from other sources. Turner speculates that it has to do with developments within the RU’s nuclear forces…OR, it could simply be used to mask major troop movements. If the latter, the affair in the Bolshevik created Frankenstein’s Monster called the Ukraine, may soon be headlined by some very significant and perhaps long overdue moves by the Russian military.

  20. Each pipeline comprises two pipes, each of the four pipes being approximately 750 miles long and with approximate diameters of 48 inches.

    Nord Stream 1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_Stream)
    Nord Stream 2 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_Stream_2)

    Served one tour in the USCG on a medium-endurance cutter.

    Beyond that, spent over 30 years in a salty vis-à-vis relationship with the North Eastern Pacific Ocean.

    Sooner or later, the sea will become your worst nightmare, an unforgiving, grim mistress.

    That aside, defending this undersea infrastructure is virtually impossible.

    It’s not rocket sabotage science; a small boat, nautical map, compass, GPS, sonar transducer, hawser, weights, C4 and detonators.

    Although extremely deranged, this “attack” is not a tour-de-force.

    Worst case scenario, thinking even some lone psycho could pull it off, single-handedly.

    This, IMHO.

    Narco-Submarine: a type of custom ocean-going self-propelled submersible vessel built for smugglers. Newer submarines are ‘nearly-fully’ submersible to be difficult to detect visually, by radar, sonar, or infrared systems. Cargos are typically several tons.

    The basic argument is that it is all theater. The major countries of the world have been taken over by the Anglo-zionists. Yet rebellion is still possible and absolute submission is their goal. Collapsing Europe and breaking up the US, Russia and China through war is one road to the NWO. It cannot be dismissed.

    One interesting question about Russia that should be asked is the nature of the Sputnik vaccines against Covid 19. Are they as destructive as the ones in the West? Is Russia as committed to injecting these Sputnik vaccines into Russians and others as they are in the West? I understand that Putin’s new recruits to the Russian Army are to be vaccinated against Covid 19. Is this a NWO ploy to bring the programs of weakness and disorder to Russia?

    Keeping an eye on Covid policy in Russia may provide clues to who really rules Russia. If it is all theater then we can only await wars choreographed to break potentially resisting populations and internal disruption meant to gradually force submission. We really need to know what the truth is.

    But US policy has been so conspicuously self-destructive that it’s hard not to wonder whether it might be intentional.

    Easy answer.

    Q: Who is in power right now?
    A: Democratic Party, headed by former President Obama. Joe Biden reads what’s on his teleprompter, put there by his staff, vetted and chosen by the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is now run by the Black coalition, which has apparently displaced the formerly dominant Jewish coalition.

    Q: Does the Democratic Party want industrial society?
    A: No. The Democratic Party is the Black party now (not Hispanic, not Asian) as shown by its campaign to end “whiteness” and its exempting most street crime from criminal prosecution.

    Q: Has the Democratic party tried to end industrial society as it was in, say, AD 2000?
    A: Yes. The Green Energy program is such an attempt; so were the COVID lockdowns and the extreme financial over-extension associated with them. The end of “Whiteness” would make impossible the sort of thinking that is necessary for industrial society (https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2020/07/15/this-is-crazy-smithsonians-national-museum-of-african-american-history-culture-alerts-everyone-about-signs-of-whiteness-and-white-culture/)

    Q: What rewards has industrial society for the Black coalition?
    A: None. Average Black IQ is 85, so productive work in industrial society is impossible for at least half of the Black coalition’s potential/actual members.

    Q: Have other Black coalitions participated in destruction of industrial societies?
    A: Yes. Africa, after WW II.

    Means, opportunity, motive.

    Style? Further, the conversion of the US Federal government to a regime protection force is typically African. In sub-Saharan Africa, the Chief _rules_ with arbitrary power of life and death. People who don’t support the Chief tend to die. Historically, this maintained group cohesion in a group of highly aggressive men who were necessary to fend off other groups of highly aggressive men.

    A saying from 1930s physics was: “The universe is not only stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think.” Looks like that’s true of aspects of the university than physics.

    Remember, US Federal government was made strong by the Anglo-Saxon Protestants during the Gilded Age as a means of keeping some control over the immigrant stream. The immigrants’ children took the Federal Government over with the New Deal (1930s), and the Federal Government / immigrant groups had control over the world by the end of WW II (AD 1946). The various groups fought it out, and by ~1960 there were only wo coalitions left. Jewish coalition defeated the Irish coalition. By ~1970 the Jewish coalition was dominant. They maintained and strengthened Democratic control of the Federal Government, while growing increasingly unpopular and increasingly dependent on the Black coalition. Obama (who was not raised in the US) was head of the Black coalition and had control of the Democratic Party by his second term. Democrats were defeated by former President Trump, but returned to power under President Biden, who is a very obvious political puppet. To mark the Black coalition’s dominance the Jewish coalition has been ejected from its stronghold of propaganda generation — Hollywod, CA (https://www.takimag.com/article/hollywoods-jews-get-their-wandering-papers/).
    The US Federal government is a moderately strong government ruled by an African descended politician with an American rank-and-file and a second generation African immigrant descended leadership cadre. It can and is enforcing an end to industrial society in the US and Europe
    (https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/we-blew-it-malinvestment-plundering-productive-assets).
    Whether the Federal Government will succeed or not in its current attempt is an unsettled question. However, the nature of the attempt is a settled question.

    It’s not “Whoever”, but “Whatever”. That “what” is the persistent anti-Black sentiment among the USA ruling class and the general population as a whole. The refusal to deal economically and politically in a realistic way with the Black descendants of American slavery has led to the same obstinance when dealing with other nations. The demonization started and continues with Black Americans and has been directed outward towards international adversaries. The same rote recitation of “Black crime statistics” is the same thought process that informs the media propaganda blitz about Putin being the new Hitler and the “Chi-coms” “releasing” viruses.

    Until reparations are paid in cash and other tangible resources to the Black descendants of American chattel slavery, there is no resolution to the spiritual curse that has been put on the USA. THIS CRISIS IS SPIRITUAL!!

    So, to solve it, the debt that is OWED to non-immigrant, Foundational Black Americans MUST BE PAID. Unless America does right by FBAs, there is no restoration of the American republic that is possible. Mock this demand at your own peril!!

    A case for the Zionists dunnit:

    While there is “no evidence that the CCP is secretly running US foreign policy”, there is overwhelming evidence that the Zionists are running it. And have been since World War One.
    From Yahweh to Zion
    https://archive.org/details/from-yahweh-to-zion-laurent-guyenot

    While Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy envisioned a multipolar world at peace, the ancient Zionst goal has been a unipolar world ruled by Zionists. The US was turned from its traditional foreign policy stance, and eventually explicitly put on a unipolar course by the Zionist Wolfowitz Doctrine. That was expanded into the Zionist PNAC plan (Project for a New American Century), which was actually a PNIC plan (Project for a New Israeli Century), using the US as the Zionist’s dumb muscle.

    From their financial HQ in the City of London (and Wall Street) they became “drunk on Leo Strauss’s self-styled philosophy of evil.” They controlled all the Western political leaders, warred and plundered the Middle East with impunity, and shipped American industry to China for more profits, presuming they would also take over the Chinese banking industry in due time. World hegemony also required they conquer Russia, of course.

    But China saw their banking scam and pulled the plug on that, while keeping the industries. Russia also saw their regime-change and resource plundering agenda, and prepared economically and militarily.

    So when the Zionist Empire attacked Russia, things did not go as they had presumed. Their vaunted economic attack on Russia failed badly, and then backfired. And the Chinese backed the Russians economically. Even worse, other countries around the world refused to help the Zionist Empire in its attack on Russia. Even worse they began to join with Russia and China on breaking free from the Zionist’s criminal financial octopus.

    To make matters worse, the Zionist military campaign against Russia failed badly. Instead of winding up with missiles poised on the Russian boarder of Eastern Ukraine, Eastern Ukraine was captured by the Russians. And all the Zionist bioweapons labs in Ukraine were revealed to the world at the UN.

    Simultaneously, international human rights organizations were announcing the their pet project of Israel was an “apartheid” (criminal) state. So their projects were failing on all fronts.

    And while the mainstream corporate media was still firmly under their control, news outlets on the internet were increasingly revealing their crimes and their criminal organization.

    So they started becoming desperate. And they started making desperate moves, sabotaging the Nordstream pipelines being the most recent and glaring. Which only let the whole world see them even more plainly.

    Putin’s recent speech showed that he sees all this very clearly. And he was outlining this picture to the whole world, and reinforcing their growing unity on this picture.

    The next step is for the US and European populations to also finally see it. Then they can throw out their current politicians, along with their Zionist mafia bosses.

    The tribe clearly believes that White Europeans are their #1 competitor. So, at the same time we are seeing the long overdue rise of pro-White racial Nationalism inside one historic White European nation after another -coupled with the explosion of resistance to jewish Globalism – we see increasing signs of panic and hysteria coming from the Marxist-Communist jewish dominated left.

    So, with their hostile takeover of America (following the stolen 2020 election), could it be possible that they were looking for ways where they could use their control over America to do something that would drive a wedge between White Europeans? Blowing up the Nord Stream 2 (and NS 1) pipelines and knowing that it would be obvious that the USA did it – is going to impose extremely harsh and painful conditions on nearly every historic White European nation. And, that is going to make White Europeans in Europe blame the USA, which is still viewed by the uninformed as a historic White nation.

    Is it possible that this was a move to try to dampen the enthusiasm for Nationalism among the White nations of the world, and damage the growing sense of racial solidarity between historic White nations by making it appear as if White America was responsible for stabbing their White racial kinsmen in the back?

    I.e. Putin betrayed the whole Ukraine in 2014 by doing nothing, while NATO completed its color revolution, occupied it, and put their puppet in place. He actually enjoyed Sochi Olympics during that time while Russians there were burned alive [1], and recognized new Ukraine puppet government immediately as legit. He then proceeded to do nothing for 8 years (2014-2022) while 14000 ethnic Russian civilians were murdered in Ukraine. During that period, he even made business deals with Ukraine. From time to time, during those 8 years, he would express “concern” about those crimes and terror before his Ukrainian “partners” and was ignored. Minsk agreements were respected as much as his numerous agreements with Erdogan in Syria – not!

By the way, it is remarkable what this newspaper wrote in the 1930s:

    “When one has studied the Jewish question in Europe for decades, the animosity towards the Jews is to a certain extent understandable, even if we look past the racial theories, that mean so much in the national socialist world view […] We know, that tens of thousands of Jews condemn the Jewish business sharks, the Jewish pornography speculators and the Jewish terrorists. But still, it can not be denied, that the experiences which the Germans—as many other continental peoples—have had with regards to the Jews, form a certain basis for their persecution. One must give Germany, that they have a right to dispose of their Jews.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jyllands-Posten#1920s%E2%80%931930s

    I’ve made the same point. The gist of it is, we need to consider what the most low tech or primitive way of carrying out the operation is.

    The most low tech way is to use a small boat and an explosive charge lowered on a cable. Another thing that has been suggested is that prepositioned explosives were used. If so, now you have another possibility – that these were detonated by some actor other than the one who put them there. Or by accident.

    Someone who knew where the charges were located could detonate them by lowering a smaller charge from the surface and detonating that charge adjacent to the larger charge. Someone could have hacked into the remote detonator system.

    Once you get past the idea that it had to be a sophisticated operation – one that only a major state actor could carry out – the number of possible actors behind the attack becomes almost unlimited and expands to include non-governmental players and even individuals. Both radical environmentalist and Islamist terrorists already have been suggest and so have various state actor.

    Then there’s the possibility of a James Bond-villain type. Or even a private individual, one who possibly lacked a political motive.

    The joke used to be that one effect of Ivy League inbreeding is a notorious lack of judgment, which in the Biden administration’s case is made worse by leftist/trans ideology that treats asking questions or pointing out facts as a cardinal sin. Literally every fault in judgment and planning that’s detailed in Dietrich Doerner’s Logic of Failure applies to the Biden administration. There is no opposition to speak of, however, since the same tribe who own the Democrats own the Republicans, who in the latter case obviously function to neutralize opposition and not provide it.

    One of the interesting findings in the book is that seasoned experts with a blinkered view of things, when set to controlling events in a new environment, display judgment worse than that of inexperienced students.

    Also, Sputnik V seems to be just rebranded AstraZeneca

    Both have essentially the same payload, unlike the other major Western vaccines an unstabilized version of the COVID spike protein, which is probably not a good idea.

    [MORE]

    But while both use non-replication competent adenovirus vectors to carry the DNA coding for the protein, the Oxford clown show which roped in AZ which had never made vaccines before uses a virus gleaned from chimpanzee feces. The theory there is that no human would have developed immunity to it. But that potentially fails for doses after the first prime one since the body will have learned to attack the vector.

    Sputnik V was a good idea, use two different human adenoviruses, Ad26 like Janssen for the prime dose (and for one of its Ebola vaccine doses) and Ad5 for the boost dose. I’m sure the idea here is that you’re unlikely to have been infected recently by either so they can get going and induce an adaptive immune system response before the body rebuilds antibody etc. fleets against them.

    Problems in the real world, well, their claim of no adverse effects is ludicrous, if for no other reason than anaphylaxis right after getting any vaccine is going to statistically happen. Not a great problem in a world with Epi-pens.

    We can also wonder how the first dose especially avoids Janssen’s clots in the veins draining blood from the brain adverse effect, in the “one in a million” class you can’t find prior to Phase IV “post-marketing,” enough of a problem compared to the mRNA and maybe now Novavax’s vaccines that Janssen’s is no longer recommended in the US (and along with for example Sanofi Pasteur’s double failure quite telling that “Big Pharma” fell flat on its face, all the Western vaccines were developed by small institutions, Oxford and BioNTech in the typical pattern partnering with Big Pharma to bring them to market).

    The other problem is that these vaccines aren’t trivial to make, cell culture vs. old workhorse E. Coli for the mRNA vaccines as the only biological step, and the second Sputnik V dose using Ad5 is very hard to make in quantity.

  72. This report of the undamaged line does at least breathe credibility back to the “Putin dunnit” thesis. I can’t claim really know whether this may have been just an accident or if deliberate sabotage then by whom, but until this it sounded silly to think that Putin did it. Not so silly now. It is at least plausible to imagine that he might willingly make an attack on his own pipeline with the intent the US will be blamed, but that business will not be halted because of a surviving line. If there is a new act of sabotage tomorrow which destroys this surviving pipeline, then it will make sense to point the suspicion back towards someone among the US, Polish, Ukrainian, Israeli suspects. But right now, this sounds awfully convenient for Putin. Whether or not that’s just an accident remains open.

    There are no people whom have not suffered. Grand scale restitution is an impossible objective. Certainly, promulgating never ending restitution for real or imagined suffering is a fools task. It cannot be done. Is there a once and for all solution. There are no guarantees, but a nation held hostage by a lunatic delusion, that it should be run from afar by a small minority is madness. Worse, that the same small minority are allowed to exist as resident subversives, is sheer madness. There must be limits to tolerance; Americans have passed the limits. Crimes deserve punishment.

    So first the news was full blown sabotage, and the reaction was “the US obviously did it”; now this is walked back to half blown sabotage, and the reaction is still “the US obviously did it”. [Insults from a troll.] If only half the pipes were destroyed, that’s double the reason to suspect it was a false flag stunt by Russia itself.

    Three out of four.

    And what a lot of people are ignoring is that the Nord Stream sets of pipelines are technically optional, Germany and company in northern and central Europe were previously adequately fed through two other pipelines systems, one of which has a route that doesn’t run through the Ukraine, instead goes through Poland on its way to Germany.

    A major reason to build the Nord Stream sets was to bypass the Ukraine and the games it’s previously paid with transit beyond it. So if everyone had the best of will Germany etc. wouldn’t have to freeze this winter, although the Greens are well on their way to achieving the same state. For example, things got so bad a full year ago in the U.K. that CF Industries had to shut down both of its nitrogen fixing plants, which like others use natural gas for the hydrogens to make ammonia. Itself a fertilizer, and the first step towards others and other chemicals.

    Note also the German back and forth on shutting down their last nuclear power plants on December 31st. And before the special military operation, the European response to Russia refusing to sell gas on the spot market.

Microphones installed along the ocean floor have captured the distinct phrase “Klaatu barada nikto.”

    Mystery solved.

    Yes, the video shows a flying saucer pilot that bears a strange resemblance to Ham, the first Chimp in space. I guess he missed his Bros in Baltimore and decided to return to earth.

    The Ukraine should be cut down also in its west and north. A small bit should be Belarus, another small part should be Hungary, a smaller part Slovak Republic, and a larger section, perhaps including Lviv, should be Poland.

    Louis Zamperini, the subject of the book Unbroken, reported and it was verified by several sources, the following:

    As a bombardier on a B-24, he crashed with his crew mates on the Pacific Ocean. For 45 days, he starved and engaged in actual hand to hand combat with large sharks, stuffed in a 2 man raft with two other survivors. (They crashed because an incompetent Lieutenant ordered them to fly a mission in a B-24, the Green Hornet, that was not sky worthy.)

    Almost dead, they crashed into an island which was catastrophically a Japanese POW torture camp. For the next two years, Zamperini was starved, beaten, kicked, whipped, caged, medically tortured, physically tortured and worked as a slave. Forced to lick pig feces. Beaten to almost death. He lost about 100 pounds.

    The bombing of Japan saved the POW’s lives. Finally, the POWs were taken to a US navel ship. Zamperini was so starved and infested with dysentery he did not think he would make it to the ship.

    He did make it. The men were so starved that the smells coming from the mess hall were driving them insane. Zamperini was still wearing a linen type shirt and pants, that looked like spiderwebs because he was still in the garments ……3 years later..that he crashed in the Pacific.

    When Zamperini hobbled to the mess hall, he was refused entry. He was also refused new clothes. Why? Because his name was not placed on the Red Cross POW list by the Japanese, and therefore the US said he was not a POW.

    Never mind that he looked like a skeleton with leather stretched over it, and was having 20 bloody digestive issues every 2 hours, and was covered in contusions and broken bones from the vicious attacks by the sadistic Japanese guards.

    Because his name was not on the list, he was denied entry to the mess hall.

    Red Cross nurses gave him candy bars, and he laid in his filthy rags until someone finally “got his name on the list”- it took about 3 days. He laid there thinking: I made it here, I made it and now I am going to starve on the rescue ship.

    Is that not sheer madness?

    There are so many other examples of the staggering incompetence of the US Government, but in terms of jaw dropping stupidity, Zamperini’s nightmare leaves one astounded.

    Maybe so. No one discounts the possibility, but what was found in the deeps seven years ago does not represent proof of what happen last month. I’m getting the idea that you sometime misunderstand what people are saying or what their positions are.

    I’m only arguing that the possibility that rudimentary means could have been utilized, meaning a small boat and a charge lowered on a cable, has to be considered. Other people have said the same since I first put this suggestion up here and in other locations.

    I don’t think it has been definitively established what quantity of explosives was used. It could have been in the hundreds of kilograms but it could have been much less We just don’t know yet.

    I have a lot of experience studying forensic cases now, especially big one where this is a lot of information available and a lot of opinion has been offered. If I have learned one thing, it is that you have to be stubborn about what constitutes proof of anything and you have to keep your options broad until there is absolute evidence that you can rule out some option. Especially that is true in case where there are many players with serious financial or political motive and the possibility of both state and non-state actor.

    You might want to consider, also, that a state actor might chose some primitive means of carrying out the mission in order to leave behind as little evidence as possible. What is more primitive than lowering a charge on a cable from small boat or maybe using divers operating from a small boat?

    I don’t rule out anybody or any means. Everybody with brain and an interest in the topic can figure out most or all of the possible means and figure who most or all of the players might be. Right now, the list of suspects is everyone in the world down to hackers or minor players with no political motive at all.

  127. Submarine Pipelines: generally vary in diameter from 3 inches (76 mm) for gas lines, to 72 inches (1,800 mm) for high capacity lines. Wall thicknesses typically range from 10 mm (0.39 in) to 75 mm (3.0 in). The pipe can be designed for fluids at high temperature and pressure. The walls are made from high-yield strength steel, 350-500 MPa (50,000-70,000 psi), weldability being one of the main selection criteria. The structure is often shielded against external corrosion by coatings such as bitumastic or epoxy, supplemented by cathodic protection with sacrificial anodes. Concrete or fiberglass wrapping provides further protection against abrasion. The addition of a concrete coating is also useful to compensate for the pipeline’s negative buoyancy when it carries lower density substances.

    Respectfully your comment is utterly off base. Let’s start with why Putin didn’t retaliate beyond Crimea in 2014: Russia was too weak. Russia was at far greater risk from a war on its border then than now. It was still recovering from the collapse of the USSR. Putin has spent the intervening years both making Russia self sustaining and turning their military into a U.S. peer where it counts. Since the start of the conflict Russia has conspicuously snuck of right on the tails of US “stealth” aircraft to send a message. Russia also chased several NATO destroyers out of the Black in those years completely jamming their targeting systems, it also warned off several more with live fire across their bows. The SU-30’s are a match for any fighter we have with the possible exception of the F-22. But lacking thrust vectoring it’s at a disadvantage in a dogfight. Russian air and missile defenses are FAR superior to ours or NATO’s. Russia has hypersonic missiles. Our affirmative action military industrial complex can’t seem to get the diversity squad to make our own. While Russia can’t match our surface fleets head on, we can’t detect most of its submarines. Recently a U.S. carrier group had to flee into the Adriatic because it was thought shallow enough to detect the entrance of the Russian submarine. The Russians just deployed basically a doomsday submarine (that we can’t track) with self guiding tsunami bombs. The Russian People know their existence is at stake and despite the caves in head propaganda the Russian military is happy and highly motivated. If you want real news on that go to Slavic channels or on telegram.

    Meanwhile our own military is becoming a transvestite clown show. It’s also anti white, anti Christian, Anti American anti straight, and utterly pathetic. The Army just missed its already lowered recruiting goals by 25%.

    African-Americans, meaning the descendants of the former chattel slaves, are due reparations. But not for slavery. For the denial of their rights as citizen under the Jim Crow system.

    Why after instead of before? For one thing, because it is a definable tort. Once settled, it represents the end of id oriented politics. Settled will mean settled and the people who continue to spin out new demands subsequent to the settlement will be exposed as the head cases they are.

    How much is “denial of rights as citizens under Jim Crow worth”? And who is it that owes them that money?

    Jim Crow rules were an invention of the racist antebellum North. The main impetus from the North for the War of Northern Aggression was the hatred of the Yankees for Negroes and their absolute requirement to reserve the rest of the North American continent (other than the Southern States) for free white men.

    Slavery could not be allowed to spread out of the South, because that would mean the spread of Negroes and Honest Ape and the Abolitionists hated Negroes and did not want that.

    And in any case, the micro aggressions of Jim Crow, North and South, are minor in terms of economics.

    The real calculation (if there is one to be made) is between the living standards of American Negroes and those of the Slave Coast (Nigeria, Togo, Dahomey, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin and thereabouts). The difference would be a net positive or negative. I imagine that the living standards of American Negroes with their welfare subsidies would be substantially higher than those of the Slave Coast.

    Which means they would owe me money.

    If the book I read and cited was correct, FDR’s greatest animus towards Imperial Japan wouldn’t seem to fit into the thesis “that FDR’s underlying motive and goal was to take down the “bankster” empire.

    He certainly was interested in seeing the British Empire dismantled which is an “embrace the healing power of ‘and’” for both theses. Funny thing, though, he was in power during one of those rare events when the world’s or West’s “bankster” empire was switching from old to new, the U.K. to the US, and the new country is in dire financial straights for a while.

    He made (((Henry Morgenthau Jr.))) his Treasury Secretary, and looking closely at his Wikipedia entry Morgenthau was one weird dude, a diaspora Jew farmer, albeit of Christmas trees, and very interested and involved in farm issues which were very big issues of the day. I’ve read separately he was weak on financial issues but the bare facts laid out in Wikipedia are not at all consistent with that. Plenty of claims in the article paint him in a good light (but not by current for example MMT standards!), and way better than average for the New Deal, maybe.

    Back to FDR: one of the first things he did was to seize the nation’s gold (and then reprice is). While that was very bad for the small and middle sized guys, who for example were outlawed from writing contracts based on payment in gold or equilivent, I have no idea how that played out at the big bank level. Given that I don’t even know the name(s) of who ran the Fed at the time, I’m going to have to leave my musings at that. OK, one more bit, waging total war didn’t necessarily increase the power of US banks for the duration.

    What will happen to them is what I experienced in High School. There was a short guy who was not much in a fight but had a bigger fellow who was much more formidable. No one in class could handle him. As such they went around muscling the kids, spitting in their lunch, throwing their books in the latrine, busting up their bikes and taking their lunch money. If you got a haircut they would slap you around the head and of course were always ready to advise you your Mother was a cocksucking slut. There was also the humiliation in front of the girls which of course was the worse.

    It got really bad and when I complained to my Dad, was told I had to handle it. Thats why and when I waited until the Guard Dog was on the stairs in front of and below me. I brought my three hole punch down on his head . There was blood everywhere and he crashed down to the landing. He got thumped and stomped on while unconscious. His short protege got severely beaten up in the yard after school. Once kid bashed him so hard in his head with a bag full of books we thought for sure he got a broken neck.

    Neither of the two were ever the same.

    We knew nothing would come of the violence because when they were doing it to us no one snitched and the school staff did not want to do anything about it. I told my Dad just to cover all my bases but he did not give a shit. All he said was “now you know how to deal with people like that”.

    The micro is the same as the macro. That is how it will go down when Uncle Sam is unable to look out for his Nephew. All the accumulated rage will be concentrated in one spot and at one particular time. When you screw with people over a long period of time, even if they dislike each other, they will come together to put you down.

    Its the old saying, nothing glues disparate people together more than a common shared hatred. Its always better to have friends and halve enemies but there are people and states that do neither firmly believing they will always get away with it because they are juiced in and there will never be a day of reckoning.

    They can make good enlisted men, but their officer corps are rotten to the core. Part cultural, part fear of the rulers of these states and the others of getting replaced. You have to get to Turkey and Iran before Israel has potential existentially dangerous enemies. A lot of the Gulf States’ wealth and thus power also depends on the sea lanes being open for commerce, something the U.K. did and now the US does.

    Israel can bribe them directly. After all, they may have a lot in common, in terms of policy positions, with the leaders of the neighboring Arab autocracies.

  166. So if Germany gets annoyed at the arrogant American terrorists’ attempt to loot and wreck their economy, all the Germans have to do is cancel their sanctions on Russia and ask Putin to turn on the spigot, which could cause NATO to quickly unravel. If that happens, the Nordstream terror attack will turn out to be one of the worst own goals in strategic history.

    The problem with Germany is that it is acting like a person ( man,woman, LGBT….) being raped who constantly tells you ” with the Americans it is sex, not rape ” when you ask them whether they need your help to stop the rapist doing his raping.

    We are talking about the Germany that is ” represented ” by its politicians who only think about their personal interest. Many people were surprised by the utterances of Annalena Baerbock namely that she doesn’t care about the German electorate’s reaction to her ” performance “. She meant to state that her future and the future of her children was secured as long as she satiated the appetite of the likes of the voracious A. Blinken.

    When you combine corrupt politicians with millions of cowardly ordinary people – addicted to inaction because activism is seen as a thing of the past – in a country then you get a disaster. That is what is happening now in many parts of Europe.

    Great questions Kevin! Yes indeed, as Aesop and any number of other ancient philosophers/prophets would remind, excessive power not only breeds corruption and hubris but also just plain stupidity. Maybe it is certified card-carrying government-internal Ziocons who are pushing the buttons but for sure we know that the Western Financialplex which acts as the brain of US-West behavior is composed of a disproportionate number of Jews naturally sympathetic to Israel, and so there’s an innate “subconscious” bias there that must warp US foreign policy decisions.

    When did the US start to go off the rails big time with the build-up of its security state and its drive to be the world’s Freedom&Democracy enforcer, at least when and where there were interests (economic-resource access)? Post WW2 when it emerged from the disastrous war as the most powerful player with the most intact economy. Its excessive power and inevitable hubris (and the reactive envy from the rest of the world) then set in motion the chain reaction that got us where we are now. Where are we now? Well, heading back to a world much like pre-WW2, but now with the added challenge of being very close to exhaustion of the modern economy’s currently-all-depletable-non-sustainable energy and resource inputs…Modern economics must transform its energy and material supply systems, a huge task requiring huge added investments. Competition for resources is bound to intensify until they’re all expended or we’ve made, if we can get it done, a transition to an earth-resource-sustainable (ERS) economy.

    This current conflict focused in the Ukraine is, like all wars, all ultimately about resource control-throughput needed for economic growth or at least sustenance… the US-Western Financialplex trying to grab all it can, trying to maintain profitable (resource exchange-positive) trade flows with the EU and trying to re-neocolonize the Russians to access their resources more profitably too. In a world where we still have a sense of us-vs-them, it’s very hard to imagine anyone, West or East, sincerely seeking true win-win deals…The natural human way, same as for other animals and plants too, is to screw the “thems” as much as they can get away with. That means then that for relative peace, there must be a power balance among the various “usses and thems”, but even when such balances occur, it’s damn hard to maintain them as there’s always someone who wants to be number one. If the current trajectory continues, and this will depend of course on its ability to maintain energy and resource throughputs and to make the ERS, then China has a strong chance of becoming the next excessively-powered hubristic and corrupt hegemon, with some help from its partner Russia.

    A question that arises: If all nations have made the ERS transition will this end our competition for resources that always leads to war? Could it be that making this transition is the way to world peace? Or, will it not more likely be that all nations do not make the transition and then among those who do will arise a new hegemon seeking to live off the labors of others like the Western Financialplex elites of today?

    Just one opaque fact that Americans might not be aware of is that intelligence and diplomatic briefings by top-level US personnel are scribed firstly for the eyes and ears of people in London, and secondly for those in Washington.

    The seat of power in the North Atlantic Anglo/Saxon/Satanic Empire is London.

    The upside of this for Americans is that Putin is well aware of this. If the ICBMs start travelling, Putin will definitely send the first of them to London.

    If he does do the British capital and about a dozen other cesspit English cities (and of course level a few hundred square miles of Satan’s chief puppet, the US) it will herald a glorious new dawn for the world.

    The shock of the destruction in England and the US (and the radiation) will shock the rest of the world (China/India) into pursuing a peaceful way forward.

    For a successful Russian nuclear strike against the dirtbags in the UK & US, China may be onboard with Putin. China may be able to assist Russia in taking down any retaliatory strikes by England or America.

    Don’t dismiss China being onboard with Russia. The Chinese use cunning in their pursuit of dominance and world power. They don’t like or really understand London’s or Washington’s vulgar use of expensive military force to gain hegemony.

    (A vulgar military force that is rooted in your Jewish masters’ ritual need for soaking the Earth in non-Jewish blood. A ritual need that was always willingly fulfilled by highly stupid White Englishmen and White Americans.)

    The Chinese attitude is, why go to such bother and expense when the same dominance and power can be won using trinkets and sweet talk. Why waste billions of dollars worth of military equipment taking territory and treasure from a moron, when he’d swap it all for a few coloured toys if asked to in the right way?

    It’s said that Hitler described the USA as a mongrel nation that would not cause Germany much trouble if it entered WW2. Perhaps Hitler wasn’t wholly correct to describe the 1940’s USA as mongrels, but he’d be certainly correct to describe it thus today.

    The US and England will go down with their Jew masters. Of that there is no doubt. May there be a special place in Hell for both American and English scum that served their Jew masters so loyally and for so long.

    By the way, I’m seeking info about the Gateway Pundit. Why are the “journalists” and commenters on it so absolutely dumb? Is it a shill, so as to pretend that American conservatives are very moronic? Or can so many of the Americans that write for it, and comment on the articles, be actually so stupid as to come across as having minus-80 IQs?

    China is:
    a) in no position to protect anybody. It is in so much trouble from demographics and mal-investment that it has reverted to a dictatorship under Xi.
    b) can and has out-played the Israeli government any day of the week. Note that China has effectively no surviving Jewish population, despite a long history of trading with overseas Jewish merchants.

    Judaism survives because it was and is protected by the Christian church, and (until Operation Desert Storm) the Shia and the Sunni Islamics.

    Anon’s scenario has actually played out several times in history:

    Judaism has been through this before. Read this if you have the stomach for it:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitos_War
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_revolt_against_Heraclius

    and those are the Wikipedia versions — considerably toned down from the reality.

    Note also that both of these wars happened at critical times in the Roman Empire.

    The Kitos war happened when Rome had occupied Persia as was on the verge of turning it into a Roman province. Rome had to call the expeditionary Legions home, and Persia survived to later invade the Empire several times, and eventually become Rome’s primary enemy. Effectively, the Kitos war changed Roman policy from expansion to defense. In a few words, Kitos started the decay of the Roman empire. After that, the Jewish population in the Roman Empire was looked on with some suspicion.

    The Heraclius revolt took place later, and its results were more significant: It was part of a revolt that lost Heraclius the entire south short of the Mediterranean Sea, and which made Israel part of the first Islamic empire, which worked out poorly for the Jewish population.

    And that leaves out the entire post-Reconquista history of Spain.

    So, yes, the Jewish population can make severe mistakes and overplay its hand, and this can have serious consequences. Apparently only remnant populations survive, the Ashkenazi and the Sephardic, both apparently from different elements of the Jewish diaspora in Roman times, and these remnant populations exist (since Desert Storm) only in Christian countries. As I recall, Jewish Neocons were prime movers behind Desert Storm, so the tradition of serious errors persists to at least recent times.

    And that’s the way the history has played out, to the best of my knowledge.

    While it is correct that the announcement that not only can NS2 become operational at a moment’s notice, but also the rest of the pipeline can be repaired (no time frame, yet) moves the probability of “USA did it” a bit lower, America is still the main suspect.

    Why?

    – Biden said he was going to do it
    – Blinken said it was a good thing it happened
    – the military was conducting “exercises” just next to the Pipeline only days before

    The US has motive, means, opportunity, and admission.

    Russia on the other hand?

    Motive? Split the alliance? Sure, but the same can be had cheaper, namely by just waiting until the current German government collapses under the pressure of Germans overwhelmingly – even their most leftist voters – wanting to stay out of this dumpster fire and celebrate Christmas in peace rather than burying frozen Oma. The current minister of economics already had two nervous breakdowns in parliament in the weeks before the terror attack. He’s been whining on stage about the terrible burnout he and his team have to deal with.

    Means and opportunity the Russians certainly have, but motive is weak and admission is missing.

    All I am pointing out is the results of the sabotage are very much to the liking of Russia, especially the remaining one pipeline out of NS 2; now Germany has to make a call, though I doubt how much a call can the government of the Occupied Germany can make in reality. However, it really educates a lot of German minds. All this is to the advantage of Russia. The 51% investment into NS 2 is already as good as dead; if this sabotage can retrieve at least a bit, by forcing Germany to approve NS2, it is worth the risk and the loss.

    Secondly, it is not necessary for Putin to order the destruction of the pipeline. Putin would be certainly aware of the shenanigans of the Poles and their paymasters. Already a pack of explosives was found near the pipeline in 2021 by the Swedes. Are we sure there are no sensors or cameras on the pipeline to monitor it physically? If any drone is seen near the pipe, it could be reported to the Russian watchers. What if Putin was well aware of the plans to blow up the pipes, and, instead of exposing it and forcing the conspirators to withdraw, he allowed them to carry out the attacks?

    To me, the fact that the fourth line escaped intact is not accidental. Either it shows a very inept job by the opponents of the pipe (Poles first), or a wink-wink by the Russian intelligence, knowing that the results are going to be entirely satisfactory.

    Per Wikipedia and other sources there was a third large-ish surviving group of Jews, the Mizrahi, “a grouping of Jewish communities comprising those who remained in the Land of Israel and those who existed in diaspora throughout and around the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) from biblical times into the modern era.” Without trying any scholarship on this subject I note Officially they have IQs below the Sephardi, who are below “100,” which makes sense and helps confirm the exist, to the extent they haven’t been ethnically cleansed to Israel … although how much do these three major populations intermix??

    The pivot to China was obviously a non-starter and per Vox Day the “Elders of Wye” realized this some years go. And while “Anon[306]’s” story make me happy I didn’t go to school with any bullies hardly that bad (but yes, violence does solve problems like them), there’s the tiny wrinkle that Israel is almost certain to have nukes, per Wikipedia estimated between “80 and 400 nuclear warheads” which is a credible number for their deterrence and revenge requirements if the former fails.

    I’m sure Israel would “never been the same” if one or more well populated parts of it were glassed, but this wrinkle means its fate after the end of the American military golem isn’t so simple. Note also at minimum Pakistan’s estimated 165 warheads need to be factored into all this.

    Russia can sell all its oil and natural gas and other resources at good prices even if Europe doesn’t exist. It doesn’t “need” any of those pipelines to the West….

    In terms of logistics is sure could use them for a while. The contingency of what’s actually happened due to the Ukraine was not enough to invest in the pipelines that would be needed to send these products to the (far) east especially, and the south has only so much demand, especially for oil due to the Gulf States.

    “Trains” to liquefy natural gas into LNG are expensive with long lead times, and the world’s out of LNG tanker capacity, I think in part because the total distancc they’re traveling is greater (not so sure with for example fewer going to the Far East from the US Gulf and instead going to Europe). Oil may be a bigger issue for increased tanker mileage demand. All in all there’s a great deal of disruption.

    So in the west of Russia Gazprom is for example using normal mechanisms to adjust for seasonal demand to stop flaring off excess gas in favor of not pulling out so much. There’s a variety of ways to address these imbalances; for now I’d assume the best option for Russia is to wait to see the results of this winter, or the next really cold one if it’s soon. With pipeline sabotage on the table things have gotten quite dicey….

It seems unlikely that this was an Israeli op since Israel has generally been on friendly terms with Putin, but there’s no way of knowing anything for sure.

    Our nuclear subs are based in Georgia and Washington (those bases would be targeted to get any subs that weren’t yet out to sea, ditto the about airfields in case their planes were slow to get going).

    American liberals and Straussians comprise a folie-a-deux. To understand the relationship, remember that Straussians believe that every society needs a single unifying myth, a de facto state religion. Liberalism (or liberal secular-materialist progressivist humanism if you want to spell it all out) is the state religion, and the Straussians make sure it’s just mythical shadows on the cave wall and has little to do with how things really operate. So we have a bifurcated system in which ruthlessly Machievellian neocons call the shots, while the propaganda machine churns out liberal opium. Most Democrats are too busy smoking the opium to notice who’s really in charge.

    That’s all very well. But you seem to be missing the rather important fact that Wile E.

If the number of times W.E.C. has been accidentally shot in the face, blown-up, dropped off bridges, fallen from light aircraft, run over by trains, planes and automobiles, flattened by assortments of heavy tools, equipment, machinery and furniture, and ended up the sole victim of his own elaborate and gory traps is mathematically divided by the number of times he’s successfully caught a Roadrunner ready-meal, the result will be equal to the probability ratio of your Hispanic Contractor successfully transmitting “Mission Accomplished” via his ACME CIA radio-set back to Langley, Virginia.

    Plus, Jose Cuervo Cartel is naive and drinks far too much Tequila during secret meetings in smoke-filled rooms with other anonymous men who have CIA lanyards in their jacket pockets, therefore if the bungled explosions triggered from that GPS guided narco-sub don’t blow him to pieces at the time, his chances of living to tell the tale more than 48 hours after his De-brief would be even slimmer.

    I’d rather watch W.E C. mess it up. At least the look on his face would put me on the floor laughing again – and like I said, he also comes back to chase (or bomb) another day.

    Royal dutch shell and British Petroleum divest Nord Stream

    For example see https://www.politico.eu/article/shell-to-divest-from-gazprom-nord-stream-2/

    FEBRUARY 28, 2022

    Dutch-British energy company Shell announced Monday it will exit its joint ventures with Russian gas giant Gazprom and related energy entities.

    That includes a 27.5 percent stake in the Sakhalin-II liquefied natural gas facility, a 50 percent stake in the Salym Petroleum Development of oil resources in Western Siberia and a 50 percent stake a joint venture exploring for oil and gas on the Gydan Peninsula.

    Shell will also cut ties with the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline project. It loaned the pipeline company 10 percent of the total €9.5 billion cost of construction

    Our decision to exit is one we take with conviction,” CEO Ben van Beurden said in a statement. “We are shocked by the loss of life in Ukraine, which we deplore, resulting from a senseless act of military aggression which threatens European security.”

    Last year Shell had around $3 billion in non-current assets in Russia.

    “We expect that the decision to start the process of exiting joint ventures with Gazprom and related entities will impact the book value of Shell’s Russia assets and lead to impairments,” the company added.

    The move comes a day after fellow industry giant BP announced it would sell off its $14 billion stake in Russia’s oil giant Rosneft, citing Moscow’s “act of aggression” against Ukraine.

    Keep in mind that Corporations also rule the world. ? Sell to who?

    I keep making this same point all the time although, obviously, not with the exact same words. Some people keep talking about the failure of the left, but they’re only failing if we take their words at face value, which we should never do, and their ostensible values keep shifting all the time which means that the face value of their words keeps changing. The bottom line is that they aren’t failing. Conservatives are failing. We have failed.

    Generally agree in that the Jewish coalition became dominant in the USA after the post-war shakeout of Democratic Party power blocks had completed, about 1970. Further, once in control of the US Federal Government, they pursued their own aims, which were:
    a) Asset stripping the US in a sustainable fashion.
    b) revenge or harassing wars against what they considered Amalekite analogs (which apparently included White Christians in the US) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalek)
    c) Retention of dominance by the Jewish block.
    Essentially, to bring about the situation in Jewish eschatological writings.

    The Jewish coalition’s components were hardly supermen (“so smart and so stupid”), and in practice much of their energy was taken in goal (a), which of course was over-done so that US urban areas (in which much of the Jewish coalition lives, 1.5 million in NYC alone) have become uninhabitable and even anti-Jewish. Goal (b) was a partial success. The Amalekite mostly still survive, and Israel never achieved neither empire nor tolerance by its neighbors.

    Jewish coalition goal (c) has failed. The Jewish coalition lost control of the US Federal Government to the Black coalition during Obama’s second term. The Black coalition’s present goals appear to be:
    a) Asset strip the US completely so as to end the industrial society in which the Black coalition cannot participate.
    b) Destroy European and Russian industrial society.
    c) End “Whiteness” in the USA by abolishing borders.
    Essentially, to re-create the conditions in Africa c.a. 2010.

    The Black and Jewish coalition’s goals are similar enough that each could, prior to Obama’s second term, support each other’s goals. Note, however, that “Amalekites” is nowhere mentioned in the Black coalition’s goals, and “asset stripping” has been replaced by “end the industrial society” .

    The difference in goals means that your analysis of the current system is, at best, obsolete. Jewish politics has been replaced by Black politics. Further, Jewish style (mislead and gradually replace, using violence only when it is sure to win with minimal casualties and risks are small) has been replaced by African style (Attaque à outrance). IMHO, current politics (such as the NS and NS2 breaches) cannot be understood without acknowledging this change.

    A problem I see with your thesis is that the effort to end industrial society, and not particularly in an asset stripping way but certainly including financialization to make money in the process, started no later than the 1970s from the twin causes of environmentalism and the claim of “Limits to Growth.” That’s when energy poverty became a fixed concept of our ruling trash.

    I don’t deny Obama and his friends thoroughly engaged in this, Peter Schweizer devoted an entire chapter to his “smash and grab” method in Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends. You could also conceive of Black politics playing a significant role in this, see the campaign against NASA and the Apollo program in particular that was going on at about the same time, 1970 plus or minus. The 1960s after all started a massive transfer of wealth to blacks about which LBJ is reputed to have said “I’ll have those n****** voting Democratic for 200 years.”

    One of the most blatant examples of a campaign of deindustrialization and indeed turning the West/US into “Africa c.a. 2010” was an effort to entirely remove the element chlorine from industry and modern life. Per this:

    Greenpeace, the international environmental advocacy group, launched the first salvo in 1991 with its call to phase out completely “the use, export, and import of all organochlorines, elemental chlorine, and chlorinated oxidizing agents (e.g. chlorine dioxide and sodium hypochlorite).” As Greenpeace’s Joe Thornton explains, “There are no uses of chlorine which we regard as safe.”

    Based on some of the same bogus science, in the same year Peru had its first outbreak of cholera since the turn of the previous century due to ceasing to use chlorine to purify water (Wikipedia is characteristically terse on this; I think it started in Lima but of course spread, per it a known million infected with ten thousand deaths). For this use case it has the fantastic advantage of continuing to kill microorganisms past the water plant. And from the above link, how much of the following sounds familiar due to COVID and the politicization of our public health trash including their disinterest in infectious disease control?

    Anti-chlorine activists were also buoyed by an endorsement from the American Public Health Association (APHA). In October 1993, the group of 3O,000 public health professionals passed a divisive resolution calling for treatment of chlorine- containing organic compounds as a class. It recognized, as had the IJC, “that the only feasible and prudent approach to eliminating the release and discharge of chlorinated organic chemicals and consequent exposure is to avoid the use of chlorine and its compounds in manufacturing processes.” Echoing almost verbatim the Greenpeace philosophy, APHA spokesman Peter Orris declared that “The APHA has found that the class of chlorine-containing chemicals should be considered guilty until proven innocent.”

    Did the vote reflect the true assessment of APHA? The membership had considered the resolution once before – and rejected it; several years of in-fighting preceded adoption of the new position. The APHA leadership, like the IJC’ s, apparently succumbed to intense pressure from environmental lobbyists. In fact, Greenpeace publicized the APHA resolution for the organization after it was passed at the APHA’s annual meeting in San Francisco.

    This first article that Bing found was authored by Michelle Malkin and Michael Fumento, you might remember the latter from another blast from the past as the author of The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS: How a Tragedy Has Been Distorted by the Media and Partisan Politics.

    As it turned out the Clinton Administration failed to end potable water in the US, but going back to your thesis of “Africa c.a. 2010” black run Jackson, Mississippi stopped delivering it earlier this year until the Army Corps of Engineers arrived and got it running again in a day or so. That city is so comprehensively incompetent they can’t bill their users for water usage, long story there including lots of local black corruption. It’s the sort of thing that’s giving me pause about the idea of restarting nuclear energy production in the US prior to currently unthinkable changes to our society, not everyone can use it safely for a variety of reasons.

    Thanks! At last I get a genuinely informative response that clears up an important area of information! Puts you in the top 0.01 of all commenters IMHO.

    Your comment led me to do a bit of research myself and stumble accross this paper (Ostrer, Skorecki;”The population genetics of the Jewish people”; Hum Genet. 2013; 132(2): 119–127.):
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3543766/

    Ostrer and Skorecki are medical doctors, interested in genetic diseases. They find the Jewish sub-populations to be genetic isolates, ideal for the development and conservation of genetic diseases and conveniently gathered for study now in Israel. They go into considerable depth into their subject, and say some interesting things from my standpoint as well:

    With two exceptions, all of the populations had mitochondrial genomes that were of Middle Eastern origin. The Ethiopian mitochondrial genomes were of African origin and the Bene Israel of Indian origin. This demonstrates that Jewish population origins have been determined not only by the flow of genes, but also by the flow of ideas, although this does not exclude the flow of genes from some now undetected founder Jewish women at the time of formation of a new Jewish community.

    Even groups that fell outside of the shared Jewish population cluster identified by PCA such as Ethiopian Beta Israel, Yemenite, Indian Bene Israel, and Indian Cochin Jews, formed their own subclusters indicating that they were distinct, homogeneous populations.

    Apparently the subclusters are sufficiently far from their surrounding populations that they have distinctive genetic diseases.

    Ashkenazi Jews are America’s largest genetic isolate, numbering some 6 million people or 2 % of the population. Based on patterns of participation in earlier genetic studies, it seems likely that members of this group will embrace new genomic medicine studies. All Jewish Diaspora groups are represented in Israel and receive their care through one of only four nationwide mandatory health care organizations. Linking their medical records (with adequate privacy safeguards) will provide an opportunity to identify the genetic factors that influence disease onset and progression and the therapeutic response.

    Note that only about 1.5 million of the 6 million US Ashkenazi population is in New York City.

    Simple sociobiology suggests that a cooperative and self interested strategy (also called a “culture”) for a “genetic isolate”. The conversion of the Indian and Ethiopian Jewish populations, which show no Jewish founder genetic effect, would suggest that it is Judaism that maintains the “genetic isolate” status of the Jewish group, rather than the “genetic isolate” status of the Jewish group that maintains the Judaism.

    In my experience, Jews who try to do without Judaism eventually find themselves feeling lost, and in fact go a bit insane, even when they try to substitute socialism for Judaism. An historical example would be the Bolshevik Jews and especially the members of the Checka. The claim of “insanity” is validated by the loss of Jewish power in the USSR to Stalin by Jewish Bolshevicks who were having so much fun destroying Russian society that they didn’t pay attention to who held the power in Moscow.
    I know, there are claims that Stalin was run by Jews, and so was every other world leader back to Sargon the Great. Such claims are easy to make, and the Ashkenazi pilpul proclivity makes it easy for them to defend such claims by switching the argument to non-rational or non-physical (e.g.”moral”) grounds. Accepting such arguments may prove membership in an in-group, but are of little use in other contexts.
    My “Insanity for non-practicing Jews in my experience” statement stands.

    If things go as badly as recent events in Ukraine/Russia and the Baltic suggest, there is going to be intense inter-group competition.

    For an example of such competition, consider the “religious wars” of the AD 1600s, brought about by a deterioration in European climate and, indeed, world wide climate (see: Parker’s “Global Crisis: War, Climate Change, & Catastrophe in the 17th Century, 2020 ). The largest effect in Europe was to break up Catholic Christendom, and to give politically recognized territory to Northern Europeans who were capable of managing their own affairs without supervision by a multi-national Catholic Church, and also break up the Spanish and Hapsburg empires. This was also known as the Protestant Revolution. It eventually led, by the late 18th Century, to the Industrial Revolution. Catholicism, which forbade usury, would never have permitted the secular accumulation of so much capital outside of politics, and would certainly never have permitted factories that drove the small craft workers out of business.
    That’s what eras of scarcity do — they threaten hitherto powerless communities with extinction, and some of the hitherto communities become locally dominant.

    It remains to be seen whether Judaism, now highly influential although not dominant since former President Obama’s second term, will remain highly influential after the current era of shortages arrives (if it does). The Jewish coalitions have made a world of enemies, and have already been driven (and have positioned themselves ) into only a few places and niches, as the eviction of the Misrahi most graphically shows.

    For that matter, the persistence of any group you might pick at random will emerge from the far side of what appears to be a wholesale civilizational upset, this time resulting from a population surge. Note that the present gross misallocation of capital by every government on Earth was matched in Western Europe during the 17th Century by a gross misallocation of capital to warfare, a misallocation that depopulated Spain, took Italy from a civilizational leader to what it is today, and killed a third to a half of the population of Europe (but made the Netherlands and England (and eventually Germany) prosperous )).

    I’m not a fan of current events, and they might well toss me personally out of the game of life, but while I follow this change, I don’t control it. As the classic tombstone inscription goes, “I’d expected this, but not so soon.”

    [MORE]

    Your observations are correct as far as they go. I ended up in the R&D game during the interval you discuss, so I have a different personal experience.
    The Establishment game back in the 1970s was to block all technical advances, with the exception of population control. That’s how the computer revolution came to be exempt from regulation; it had obvious uses in centralized population control. Everything else was suspect, though, with nuclear power heading the list of suspects.
    OK: An early step of the US Establishment was to switch the propaganda from “we need many more engineers and scientists” to “Engineers are mentally ill and don’t understand merchandising” to “There are no engineers, only ‘technologists’”. This paralleled the “Psychoactive drugs are wonderful, they let you see another side of reality, but tobacco is terrible and will kill you” and the “Office of Technology Assessment”, which had as its mission “discovering the implications of a technology before it is developed, and (if the technology is deemed harmless) outlawing that technology.” In practice, OTA was an “Office of Technology Prevention”. Tort laws were also changed, and “class action suits” were introduced, which made innovation very risky.
    At the same time, the larger corporations were protected, provided that they did not innovate. Since the American population had grown up under the extreme technical changes of WW II, a propaganda theme that “We have the good technology, the safe technology”. This theme eventually grew into contemporary “climate change” propaganda and, among other campaigns, the “anti-chlorine” campaign. Just as well that didn’t work, we’d be spending money desalinating the oceans (sea salt containing chlorine) [1].
    The policy goal was, I believe, a controlled economy in which asset stripping could be conducted in relative safety, with little danger of inducing bankruptcy. That failed with the failure of US Steel and its replacement by smaller steel producers who had specialized in scrap recovery and, after a decade or so could deliver better product to US Steel’s customers at lower prices. (See _The Innovators Dilemma_ for the corporate internal politics that contributed to this result, but overall US Government policies also contributed).
    Engineering change continued, and the “no change” policy had to be abandoned. Its biggest failure was not permitting urban adaptation to containerization (See: _The Box_), which kept Democratic domination of major US cities intact but also rendered all major US cities economically obsolete, by moving container ports away from the cities.
    As for major frauds, NASA has to head the list. Its actual physical missions (lunar landing, planetary probes made by JPL) were real. Its stated mission, to open up access to low earth orbit and promote space industrialization, was not real. The Space Shuttle, in particular, was hopelessly uneconomic and NASA knew that before the Shuttle’s first flight. The ISS has been hugely expensive, but has not yielded any of the commercial results originally promised. NASA has been the classic “center for the absorption of Federal funds”.
    My point is that the Jewish coalition had the the intent, at least, of halting progress in science and engineering while both appearing to be champions of innovation and diverting capital from productive uses into maintenance of political control, patronage jobs, and stock market manipulations, but did not intend to end the gravy train by destroying existing industry. And note that I’ve not discussed the “patronage jobs” and “stock market” parts, just some items from my personal experience. They did not intend to reduce the US to the industrial/science/engineering level we’ve since seen in “Africa c.a. 2010”, just to make the US government “good for the Jews”. [2]
    I believe that the “good for the Jews” government provided by the Jewish political coalition did not intend to destroy US industry; that was a byproduct. “Good for the Jews” involves them living in areas such as NYC Tribeca [3], which can’t exist without support from an industrial society. The Jewish coalition did intend to eliminate Anglo-Saxons from corporate management (see: _Work in America_), but not to destroy the industry. There is a whole genre of fiction about proles who “take over an abandoned mansion” and live the good life, and I actually rented a room once from a person who had done just that. “Green Acres”, an old comedy show, had that as its background and an advertising executive from NYC (converted into an Anglo Saxon type) as the person taking over.
    The deindustrialization of the US was the result of Henry the K, a spokesman for the strategic insight that the US could assemble a winning coalition in the Cold War by guaranteeing freedom of the seas and access to US markets for US allies and for neutrals (such as India) and even inactive enemies (such as the People’s Republic of China, PRC). That the cost of this strategy would be US industrialization was of no consideration; back then Anglo-Saxons (an enemy group for H the K) ran industry, and it was assumed that the Jews could live from what amounted to imperial tribute (which, in fact, they have). That H the K managed to con Nixon, a Republican, just made the con more bulletproof.

    Now, compare this with Biden’s policies, which are simply destructive. No indigenous fossil fuel industry for the US and Europe, but plenty for other nations. Effectively no nuclear power. No protection from street criminals for retail trade. A DOJ that is visibly becoming a regime protection force instead of a law based agency. A US Army rapidly losing its expeditionary force capability and its combat cohesion. 87,000 IRS agents to collect every cent of taxes and harass whoever the current Administration wants harassed. Introduction of a large immigrant population that lacks the 85+ IQ needed to serve the present industrial economy and will therefore soak up investment money. And the efforts to ‘Federalize the elections” backed up by Black Coalition threats to “blow up the Senate” if elections are not federalized. Finally, the de-industrialization of Europe through sanctions imposed during the present Ukraine/Russian Federation conflict.
    Or the legacy of Obama’s second term: a medical establishment that improves health by its absence, that has in effect become an instrument of destruction for anybody using medical insurance. This showed up most strongly in the use of ventilators during the COVID-19 affair, but is also obvious in the widespread prescription of drugs that have highly dubious efficacy, such as the SSRI drugs and, of course, the anti-COVID RNA vaccines.

    Accordingly, I believe that the policy objective under the Black coalition is just what it says it is: a series of policy moves to “change America” to something in which the Black coalition can dominate indefinitely, and in which its citizens can feel comfortable. In short, like sub-Saharan Africa c.a. 2010. These are pretty much the same goals as any ethnic coalition has, with proper adjustment of homeland. The difference is between bleeding industrial society for the good of an ethnic group and destroying industrial society for the good of an ethnic group.

    The change in style from “do it our way or we will destroy you in some opaque manner and nobody will know we did it” to “do it our way or we will destroy you in some obvious manner and everybody will know we did it” seems to confirm these conclusions – The Jewish coalition would have threatened to modify the Senate (e.g. “end the filibuster”), but not to “blow it up”. The Jewish coalition knew that its dominance lay in the legitimacy and seeming historical continuity of the US Federal Government, and in keeping some semblance of an industrial society; the Black coalition does not believe this and wants, as a first step, to abolish Whiteness and replace it with something like the African chieftainship, as was the case in the water supply failure of Jackson, Mississippi.

    As your remark about nuclear safety compromise by inadequate personnel, we’re in agreement about that. The conversion of universities from education for industry to indoctrination and tuition collection means that engineers are being trained on the level of technicians, and very many use a “learn for the test, then forget” methodology that makes them unsafe in actual jobs (and for scientists is responsible for the 50% of research reports being irreproducible). It’s possible that we’ve already lost industrial civilization, and a transition to “Africa, about 2010” would make recovery nearly impossible.

    If you’re interested in fiction, see the very popular “Warhammer 40K” videos for what the fiction writers see as our present and future. You might also try the “Orcs discuss philosophy” videos. Orcs are aliens most closely related to moss, and have green skin and very large canine teeth.

  255. The US empire (a business masquerading as a country) and its’ imbecilic populace, has a ‘negative’ identity. That’s why it loves war, and needs vassals to sell their endless war mongering.

    As aptly described by Morris Berman, “Negative identity is a phenomenon whereby you define yourself by what you are not. This has enormous advantages, especially in terms of the hardening of psychological boundaries and the fortification of the ego: one can mobilize a great deal of energy on this basis and the new ‘nation’ [the US] certainly did. . . . The downside . . . is that this way of generating an identity for yourself can never tell you who you actually are, in the affirmative sense. It leaves, in short, an emptiness at the center, such that you always have to be in opposition to something, or even at war with someone or something, in order to feel real.”

    This ontologic and intellectual emptiness is why the US empire endlessly needs an “enemy” a “boogie man” to feel ‘alive’ to feel ‘real’….the massive mistake that the US was is finally showing its’ cracks, faults, etc. bc it was a business enterprise with all the wrong values.

    The very term”radical” was first introduced into general discourse by Jean Jacques Rousseau. Based on the original Latin root, the term specifically is rooted in the term “root”. So my definition is quite and absolutely apropos le moment.

    But when you say “The US empire” (although the Republic was never actually in history called an “Empire” and certainly not in any history book I ever read), you are talking about the original high-IQ creative, resourceful, bold, pioneering, family-rearing, religiously-minded White-stock European Christians, who founded the nation for very specific and noble purposes to do with the future of White people in freedom, prosperity and peace.

    But your words indicate you are thinking instead of the malevolent, deranged, hate-driven, war-mongering, anti-White racist, Satan-worshipping, nation-wrecking Talmudist and neo-con Zionist filth who have owned and run the nation unopposed for the past 75 years, and turned it slowly and carefully by the magic of Jew insanity into the collapsing madhouse it is today.

    Good to be able to help you keep your definitions straight. You’re welcome.

    Never fear – I am here.

    In fact, “those things one hangs around one’s neck with a plastic envelope for a security card” are badge-holders, card-holders, OR lanyards.

    A lanyard is a cord, length of webbing, or strap that may serve any of various functions, which include a means of attachment, restraint, retrieval, and activation and deactivation. A lanyard is also a piece of rigging used to secure or lower objects aboard a ship

    Since you asked. I liked that bit about “that may serve any of various functions.” Wiki has some basic uses – occasionally. You’re welcome.

    Buy one if you like !

    OK, then, can you explain how a dominant Jewish establishment could permit the situation described by Cole, below, to exist? Serious question, how could a dominant Jewish establishment permit the Jews to lose Hollywood?

    My conclusion is that a dominant Jewish establishment could not permit the situation that Cole describes, therefore, since the situation exists, there is no dominant Jewish establishment. Some other coalition is running the show in DC just now.

    backed up by the obvious loss of clout by big cities, where the Democratic Black base population resides:

    As to a Black coalition destroying Industrial society, I point to Africa, where exactly such a coalition destroyed several industrial societies, of various sizes, after WW II.

    I know it’s disillusioning and disoriented during an interregnum (Old King dies, now King not decided upon), but these things happen. I’m just trying to figure out wheter we are currently in an interregnum (not new rule, as I doubt the Black coalition’s ability to govern).

    A talmudist trying to blame the 80IQ blacks for what his co-satanists are doing. What a moron!

    Note the standard pilpul tactic of trying to switch the debate to one that cannot be decided by either logic or observation.

    This, as you can see by simple examination. is an example of “talmudist” trying to deny that his coalition has lost power, and doing so by using his coalition’s signature form of argument. What a moron!

    I think it was more likely that Israel blew up the pipelines. This coming winter will be exceedingly cold and the Germans will suffer. Israelis hate the Germans, and Christian Russia.

    Russia will not be allowed near the Nord Stream “problem”

    Something fishy is going on with this whole deal, first it wa no gas probably ever, then it was “we can send gas now” and today Norway Denmark and Sweden say “Pipeline closed, Don’t you dare go near the leak Russia”. That probably means there is evidence there.-

    Another missive from the Sewrabunker and our own wannabe tinpot Fuhrer.

    Funny to hear that from a Putin’s agent with “Mulga” in his name (a snake feeding on roadkill and exhibiting cannibalism).

    Once again the response to Russian propaganda:

    WSJ: Russia Blasted Nord Streams Remotely
    https://charter97.org/en/news/2022/10/18/520407/

    The conclusions of the German investigators have been published.

    German investigators have determined that the series of explosions that created leaks affecting three of four pipes that are part of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines were likely caused by sabotage, The Wall Street Journal reported on October 17.

    As the officials familiar with the probe told WSJ, the investigators were unable to identify a culprit, but some officials work under assumption “Russia was behind the leaks”.

    Some German officials say it was unlikely that the suspected sabotage was performed by a military submarine, citing the relatively shallow depth of the water and the typically close submarine monitoring conducted by NATO navies in the area. One theory about the attack is that explosive devices were lowered from a ship and then detonated remotely, the German officials said.

    After examining the site of the explosion, the investigation concluded that the explosives that damaged three pipes had the strength of around 500 kilograms of TNT.

    Perhaps, reading Why america Failed by Morris Berman may help understand the putrid US empire and its imbecilic populace of turkeys and buffoons who’s only goal was to acquire $ through endless hustling and huckstering via that negative identity. The Jew fixation is funny-maybe have some matza ball soup each day whilst living in the massive mistake?
