One can frequently disagree with government policies without necessarily regarding them with disgust, but the Joe Biden Administration has turned that corner, first with its senseless promotion of a new Cold War that could turn hot with Russia and, more recently, with its actions undertaken to undermine and punish Afghanistan. The fact that the White House wraps itself in the sanctimonious, self-righteous twaddle that is so much the hallmark of the political left is bad enough, but when the government goes out of its way to harm and even kill people around the world in pursuit of an elusive global dominance it is time for the American people to rise up and say “Stop!”

As a former CIA operations officer, I departed government service in 2002 in part due to the impending invasion of Iraq, which I knew was completely unjustified by the web of largely fabricated information that was flowing out of the Pentagon to justify the attack. In the years since I have been appalled by the Obama era attacks on Syria and Libya as well as by the assassinations and cruise missile strikes carried out under Donald Trump. But all of that was a Sunday in the park compared to the hideous nonsense being pursued by Biden and his crew of reprobates. Trifling with the use of force as part of negotiations intended to go nowhere over Ukraine could well by misstep, false flag or even design escalate into nuclear war ending much of the life on this planet as we know it, and we are now also witnessing the cold, calculated slaughter of possibly hundreds of thousands of civilians just because we have the tools at hand and believe that we can get away with it. What we are seeing unfold right in front of us goes beyond appalling and it is time to demand a change of course on the part of a runaway federal government that is drunk on its own self-assumed unbridled right to exercise total executive authority over vital issues of war and peace.

I am most particularly shocked and dismayed over what the Biden Administration did to Afghanistan on February 11th, which is unambiguously a crime against humanity. On that day the President of the United States Joe Biden, still smarting from the botched departure from Afghanistan and low approval ratings, issued an executive order invoking emergency powers stipulating that the \$7 billion in Afghan government money being held and frozen in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York would be retained by the US and divided in two.

Half of the \$7 billion would be placed in a US government administered trust fund. The money would in theory go to fund humanitarian relief in Afghanistan to be carried out by agencies unidentified but presumed to be acting in coordination with the barracudas at the Treasury Department while the other half would go to benefit the victims of 9/11. This money is not just “frozen assets,” it is the entire reserve of the Afghan central bank, and its appropriation by the US will destroy whatever remains of the formal Afghan economy, making Afghanistan entirely reliant on small rations of foreign aid that come through channels unconnected with the Afghan government.

The other half of the story is that Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11 but instead became a victim of the US lust for revenge. After 9/11, the Taliban government offered to turn over Osama bin Laden to the United States if Washington were able to provide evidence that he was somehow involved in the attacks in New York and Virginia. The George W. Bush Administration was unable to do so, but chose to invade instead.

Afghanistan now has a government that is recognized by the United Nations and many other countries, though not by Washington, which insists that the Taliban are terrorists. Sanctions pressure being exerted by Washington on the new Taliban dominated regime has inter alia brought about a major humanitarian disaster, with various international agencies predicting that many thousands of Afghan civilians will die of starvation because there is no money available to provide relief. The United Nations has reported that three-quarters of Afghanistan’s population has plunged into acute poverty, with 4.7 million people likely to suffer severe or even fatal malnutrition this year.

The money in New York unambiguously belongs to the Afghan government and the country’s central bank. It is not money that came from the United States, which means that what Biden, who is already stealing Syria’s oil, is engaging in yet one more large scale theft, this time from people dying from famine and disease. Furthermore, as the US was de facto an occupying military power in Afghanistan, the responsibility to protect the civilian population is explicitly required under the articles of the Geneva Convention, to which the US is a signatory. That Washington will watch many thousands of civilians die because it has used its position as an occupying power to steal money that might alleviate the suffering is unconscionable and amounts to a war crime.

Undoubtedly the half of the money allegedly allocated for humanitarian relief will be directed to organizations that will do Washington’s bidding in terms of how the aid is distributed and who gets it. It is being reported that it will take months to set up the aid network, by which time thousands will die. That is to be expected and may have been intentional. And as for the other half of the money directed towards 9/11 “victims,” just watch how that plays out. There are undoubtedly instances of Americans who lost multiple and even cross generational family members at 9/11 and are still in need of assistance. Fine, that is a given, but why punish the Afghans to deal with that? And as soon as the money is on the table you know exactly what will happen. All the shyster lawyers working on a percentage of the payoffs will come out of the woodwork and the major beneficiaries of all the loot will be people who know how to manipulate and game the system. That is what happened to the billions that came raining down as a consequence of the insurance claims on the World Trade Center and also in the distribution of other monies that followed. You can bank on it.

Washington has become adept at lying to cover up its crimes overseas, but foreigners, who are not likely inclined to read the Washington Post and are directly affected by the deception, frequently have a more facts-based understanding of what exactly is going on. And it is why no one any longer trusts the United States. And, it is interesting to note how inevitably the lying by the US government is both bipartisan and inclined to blame the victim as a fallback position. This was seen in Donald Trump’s assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani over two years ago. Soleimani was in Baghdad for peace talks and was falsely accused by the White House of preparing to attack American soldiers. There is also the more recent assassination of alleged ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi and killing of 13 additional women and children in Syria where accounts of villagers don’t quite square with the Pentagon version of what allegedly took place.

And then there is a long-concealed atrocity also in Syria which took place in the town of Baghuz in March 2019. At least 80 mostly women and children died in an attack by American F-15 fighter bombers, which was only reported in the media in November 2021. Reportedly, a large crowd of women and children were seen by photographic drones seeking shelter huddled against a river bank. Without warning, an American attack jet dropped a 500-pound bomb on the group. When the smoke cleared, another jet tracked the running survivors and dropped one 2,000-pound bomb, then another, killing most of them. Military personnel at the Udeid Airbase in Qatar watching the attack by way of the drone camera reportedly reacted in “stunned disbelief” at what they were witnessing. A Pentagon cover-up followed and to this day the official comment on the attack is that it was “justified.”

So, by all means go and listen to lying Jen Psaki and pencil neck Ned Price or to Secretary of State Tony Blinken and possibly to the ultimate nitwit himself, President Honest Joe Biden. Or you can just pick up a New York Times or Washington Post where deliberately leaked government lies are backed up by what the newspapers pretend to be editorial integrity. These folks just might drop us into a nuclear war or could possibly continue in their larcenous ways to rob the world. Sooner or later the chickens will be coming home to roost and accountability for America’s war crimes will be demanded. Stay tuned.

  1. There are plenty of crimes against humanity perpetrated by our Fed Gov right here in the USA. Try hospitals and Docs killing people to make extra coin and save their own jobs in the last two years. American genocide, right here.

    Anyway, I’m in quite a mood and decided I’d paste the content of an email I just sent to a friend.
    Although the Canada trucker convoy/protest encouraged and galvanized alot of people, look what the results were. Pretty much all in favor of the Govt which is why I think it may have been started under fake pretenses for this intended outcome.

    Parliament just granted Little Fidel Trudeau extended emergency powers. Legally, he’s now as close to a dictator as he’s ever been. There needed to be an intense event in order to get that vote. I’m telling you I have watched this stuff so many times. When a massive, very involved, expensive event bubbles up out of nowhere — it should make peoples antenna start buzzing.

    They’ve also frozen personal bank/crypto accts, credit cards, taken trucks, etc. of those they now label “domestic terrorists”. The Trucker Convoy was Ottawa’s version of Jan 6. Both included regular citizens along with embedded federal agents who were entrapping and harming people. Same thing; both events. And all of it has been broadcast around the world for people to see and get the message of what can happen to them if they get uppity.

    An American trucker convoy will likely be a trap and could involve something really nasty like a massive bomb. That’s how our Feds roll. If I was a trucker, I wouldn’t touch that convoy with a 100 foot pole.

    I’m very suspicious about the recent rescinding of a huge amount of Covid-related mandates. One after another, after another in Lefty land. Something stinks about that. No, I don’t believe the media that it’s related to the polls/elections. Something is on deck – probably the next nasty assault on Americans in some form…either a new disease released or a nuke, etc. Psychopath B. Gates did promise us another pandemic. Don’t ever think that guy is joking.

    The globalists have been planning this for decades, we haven’t seen the half of it yet, and they don’t intend to lose. Just saying.

  5. We all understand Biden is in charge of absolutely nothing. But at the same time, we all understand he is a horribly compromised, weak moron. A clownish imbecile who will destroy lives if that benefits him in the tiniest way.

    He is a special kind of man with absolutely no moral compass whatsoever. He’s the quintessential American politician.

    Perhaps Madeline Albright can be interviewed for her thoughts on whether such barbaric behavior by our American leaders is “worth it.” Will she feign civilised standards this time or be consistent with her previous “you bet it was worth it” in response to all the dead Iraqi children who were basically used as a distraction from Monica.

    Anything to do with Demento Joe basically serves as a distraction from all his malfunctions and depravities. I’ll bet Hunter gets a commission for handing out all the money.

  7. Senile and detached Joe Biden is the ultimate asset to the deep state whose operatives are by and large a bunch of thieves, criminal psychopaths and sociopaths. Both the White House administration and the deep state, with their total control of information and media, will never allow an already apathetic American public to know the sad reality of the United States foreign policy, basically that this country‘s main strategy is to sabotage any international effort at enhancing economically productive cooperation between other parties on planet Earth such as the Nord Stream II so that US hegemony justifies the theft of American tax Dollars to feed the insatiable appetite of MIC called more accurately by ex CIA officer Ray McGovern MICIMATT as well as the dominance of the Dollar as the dominant global currency which allows the U.S. government racket to spend beyond its means.

    With Young Global Leaders being promoted by the WEF to play political leaders offers scant hope that the world will rid itself from the cancerous juggernaut. Only the ordinary people who are getting fleeced by the U.S. taxation system can put a stop to the bloody endless swindle.

    The Taliban government should simply finance itself by selling, on the open market, the munition left by the botched up American withdrawal from Afghanistan, estimated at a value of eighty five billion Dollars, to cater for the country’s humanitarian needs.

    A cynic might add that the \$7 billion could have been distributed to the American veterans of that conflict as a consolation for the way Biden ended it. As long as the US is going to be conquering countries there is no reason not to divide the spoils among the legions, as Caesar and Alexander had the good sense to do.

    The US is the leader of the coalition that has waged aggressive war on Syria that, along with the recruitment, arming, training, financing and supporting of the jihadi filth, has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and government troops and inflicted massive destruction. Yet it continues to speak of Iran as the chief sponsor of terror in the world. And Iran has certainly not bombed another country without Security Council authorization for 70 days.

    The US has shown the same consummate pettiness in Syria as in Afghanistan in its cruel denial of reconstruction funds and bombing of important infrastructure. This while embracing the fairy tale doctrine of R2P and creating the “rules-based international order” out of whole cloth and to operate outside of the post-WWII legal framework of collective security.

    The modern US is a joke, albeit a vicious, stupid, arrogant, hypocritical one.

  13. Clinton, Bush’s, Obama, Trump & now Biden i.e the top leadership of the USA, have proved themselves to be corrupt, cruel and lacking in simple morals Their combined lack of integrity and compassion has brought damage and harm to weaker countries and their peoples.

    The fish rots from the head down and US citizens, who repeatedly vote into power men who constantly demonstrate lack of human spirit and statesmanship, must at some point surely pay a terrible price for their lack of concern and righteous anger – probably in the not too distant future. I am ashamed of what America has become; its indifference to what is right and what it is willing to put up with to stay immune and insulated from responsibility.

    It is obvious that in general evolutionary terms humanity has a very, very long way to go, and it seems that wisdom only comes through suffering. It also seems that mankind can put up with a lot of suffering without realizing a damned thing. Divine Intervention through Great Teachers must be hoped for and embraced before we fail as mankind.

  14. And the US has not been able to plausibly claim to be a democracy for yonks! So, why can’t it do better? The wrong billionaires buying the pols?

  22. Wakey-wakey, Mr. Giraldi, international law is a thing of the past! One should read up about global warming and 6-th mass extinction of species, and population growth forecasts, resource depletion, pollution, etc. and after thinking it over – come to the conclusion the whole of humanity is headed to a very dark place. So, effectively, the world war was ‘started’ by Mother Nature. In this context, to talk about morality in international relations is showing one has failed to grasp the point. Yes, Western powers can talk about morality all day – that is their self-interest they are presenting as morality. There is no universal morality – that’s relative and has been so ever since Ancient Greek philosophy and the Bible. There is amorality – do what your interests require, aim to be on top and never submit to anyone other’s law.
    Also: weak examples! The National Bank of Afghanistan is not going to ditribute money to the poor, or organize food and health supplies. I think that should be perfectly clear, so what’s the problem they don’t get the money? 80 people died somewhere? Civilians? Check out the whole of Afghanistan adventure, the whole of Iraq destruction, the whole of Arab Spring, the whole of suppression of Iran, and the whole of attempting to start a major war in Central Europe. THAT is the war crime.

    “The United Nations has reported that three-quarters of Afghanistan’s population has plunged into acute poverty, with 4.7 million people likely to suffer severe or even fatal malnutrition this year.”

    Point number one. I do not give two squirts of rat dookey about anyone in Afghanistan, but I would greatly relish seeing every member of the George W. Bush / Dick Cheney / Neo-con war mongering, 9-11 complicit administration who lied the USA into attacking, and then getting bogged down in Afghanistan arrested, charged with war crimes, swiftly convicted and then sentenced to capital punishment as a consequence of all the people in that nation who they, and subsequent occupants of the White House, have murdered.

    But, being a long time fan of Phil Giradli’s work, I am a little disappointed in this latest article. Phil seems to miss the between the lines ‘agenda’ behind Pedo Joe’s maneuvers with Afghanistan. He and his 70 percent jewish administration are deliberately working to plunge Afghanistan’s population into acute poverty and create conditions that will lead to fatal malnutrition and starvation because this will then give Pedo Joe and his 70 percent jewish administration the excuse they need to give refugee and asylum status to those 4.7 million Afghannies and start importing them into America by the millions.

    Where, once here, they will be deliberately resettled in the Red States and where the tax payers of those Red States will be forced to subsidize these parasites with all kinds of social entitlements.

    Such as: Free housing, food stamps, free health care, welfare checks, free cable TV, free Internet Service, AFDC gibs benefits for their crumb crunchers. Also, the public schools will have to spend hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to hire bilingual teachers – since none of these Afghannies will be able to speak English. Plus, these Afghannies will quickly learn that their gravy train of free gibs will require them to vote for Democrats to make sure they can keep collecting them, so in very short order, these Red States will flip and turn bright Blue.

    As I said, I do NOT share the concern or apparent sympathy for the people of Afghanistan that Mr. Giraldi seems to reflect in this latest article. I would, however, love to see the war criminals who destroyed their country to held accountable – but, the LAST thing I want to happen is to see Pedo Joe and his 70 percent jewish administration importing nearly 5 million of these third world aliens into the USA. They belong in their OWN country, and not in ours.

    Nothing new here, just more of the same with us. Our Mustang P51s did this type of thing all over Germany during the last months and days of WW2.

  34. You can trace how it began. At first the USAF rejected Britain’s infamous Lindemann plan of night bombing attacks on German cities, preferring daylight raids on military targets. Then they gave in and joined the merry mayhem of the greatest deliberate targeting of civilians in history, refined it with Yankee ingenuity into a fine art over the skies of Japan. Then on to North Korea, where a quarter of the nation’s people was exterminated, and every one of her cities incinerated. Next even more massive crimes in Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia, and perhaps most cynical of all, the rape of the Islamic world for oil and Israel. Yet the only glorious “total victories” the Pentagon could claim were over tiny Granada and Panama, for pity’s sake.

    My hope today is that Putin and Xi have baited a trap that the arrogant fools in Washington have walked right into, thinking they will once again get away with building an impressive funeral pyre of human corpses. This time, maybe, finally, the hunters have become the prey; it seems transparently obvious that DC is manipulating the Ukies the same way FDR maneuvered the Limeys into committing imperial suicide, even as London was luring Poland into doing the same thing. Cross and double cross: it is the way of the psychopaths who run nations.

    The timing seems perfect. The American President is a senile fool presiding over a collapsing empire, and the Secretary of Defense was foolishly chosen for his fashionable skin pigment rather than military ability, fresh from whoring for the defense industry after bumbling leadership roles in the catastrophes of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Two wrongs don’t make a right, it is said, but maybe three do.

    When the United States invaded Afghanistan, the population was about 20 million. With the highest fertility rate outside Africa, the population has since exploded to about 40 million.

    The United States did not in any way try to ‘develop’ Afghanistan. The trillions wasted on that country mostly went to politically connected defense contractors with a bit skimmed off by corrupt local officials. What the United States did do, was feed this burgeoning population without making any attempt to ensure that the Afghani economy could support it.

    In the next 20 years, the population is slated to double again to 80 million, yet the Afghanis can’t even feed half of their current population. Now the United States has suddenly cut off food aid, and frozen external bank accounts blocking imports. It is hard to believe that our elites don’t know what this means.

    There are currently tens of millions (and counting) of Afghanis desperate to flee, and it won’t be from the Taliban, it will be from crushing misery and hunger. Which our elites are happy to exploit.

    “We need to rescue our loyal allies!” – what a scam. There were perhaps 200 Afghani interpreters worthy of coming to the United States, but many of these will be left to rot, because our elites care about them only insofar as they serve the propaganda purpose of flooding the United States with yet another horde of impoverished people.

    The United States is now continuously operating cargo flights where a thousand people are shoveled in like cattle, given blank visas, and then dumped in the United States. Rinse, Lather, Repeat. Some of these people will be amongst our ‘loyal’ allies that only joined the Afghani army for a paycheck, often shot US soldiers in the back, and abandoned their posts at first chance. Most of these ‘loyal’ allies will have had nothing to do with the United States, many of these ‘loyal’ allies will have fought on the other side, and many of these ‘loyal’ allies are not even Afghanis, because nobody’s checking and the entire purpose is to maximize the number of warm bodies flooding into the country.

    And these cargo flights are not going to stop – although the media coverage of them will. I expect that these flights will be expanded to neighboring countries and, again, anyone will be let in.

    Certainly, there are politicians eager to shift the electoral balance by importing likely Democratic voters, and there are people who hate the white American working class and relish a chance to attack and dispossess them, but the prime driver here is greed. To force population growth upwards, to drive wages and living standards down, and rents and profits up, because nobody beats the law of supply and demand.

  41. The following article is very important:

    The article makes clear that Russia will act as guarantor of the safety and integrity of the newly recognized Donbass republics, says Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov:

    “Treaties of friendship, cooperation, and mutual assistance have been signed between Russia and these new states, in which we promise to safeguard their security,” the foreign minister said. “I think everyone understands that,” he added.”

    So that means any aggression against the Donbass republics will meet with Russian military might.

    Looks like the Bear has had enough of the US/NAZO, and is standing firm. About time!

    Let’s see if the crazies in the Ukraine will choose to be the fully expendable meat puppets of the US/NAZO now that Russia has thrown down the gauntlet. If Russia’s gambit works, this could prove to be the opening salvo of a world-wide pushback against Western aggression and oppression across the globe. The next place I’d like to see such would be Syria, but that is likely a bridge too far, and too close to Israel, at least presently. But it is heartening to see the Russkies stand up to the US/NAZO murderous, thieving bullshit and say, “Enough!”

    The next few weeks will be very, very interesting, to say the least…..

    You’re right to be suspicious.

    As I’ve (sarcastically) observed, the only good to come in what used to be playfully known as the free world since 9/11 is the wholly justified disappearance of “unbelievable” as a reaction to events such as the Canadian government’s reaction (and that of its state media) to the peaceful Trucker Freedom Convoy.

    Unfortunately, it’s been replaced with “unprecedented” which simply isn’t true as a historical matter. It’s deployed to manipulate the ignorant and overwhelm the knowledgeable.

    Maintaining a healthy skepticism is the way to avoid lapsing into Lenin’s “The worse, the better.”

    Any way you slice it, the Canadian Parliament went from the frying pan into the fire by giving Justin ’30 days to crush dissent.’ Deputy Freeland, the one really driving the bus, has already assured that the government intends these powers to be permanent. But that’s the joke, as with the other Five Eyes, they have been for many years, sans the official acknowledgement.

    In my view, the freedom protests in Canada, including visible widespread support across Canada, were too peaceful and too disciplined to be state-generated for nefarious purposes. The repeated gambits to enrage the protesters into reactive violence failed. That’s straight from the January 6th playbook, down to attacking women. This time a disabled old lady. When that didn’t do the trick a lady reporter was shot point blank with a rubber bullet (or tear gas canister) and a police taser was magically dropped right at that moment in the hope one of the protesters would try to pick it up and, jackpot, use it.

    I assess the state of play in Canada thus. Surveillance and old school police state powers have been approved by Parliament so thoroughly without justification that must have been the objective. While what’s right in front of our faces is the normalization prospectively, my suspicion is that the complete gaslighting about grave threats to Canada from protesters setting up bouncy houses in Ottawa, was pursuant to the goal of vouchsafing all of the violations of Canadians’ Charter Rights over the previous two years because Covid.

    Dollars to donuts, Freeland and the other swine are promising to identify and persecute everyone who donated to the protestors over just expressed support aware of the coming revelations.

    Accountability for America’s war crimes will be demanded. Just so. And now, as we evidently have allied great powers who can and will enforce universal jurisdiction law at gunpoint, it might happen sooner than anybody thinks.

    As to how that will actually transpire: the court or tribunal will identify the US state’s civil/military command structure in order to apply the elements of crimes. One crucial element is control. Impunity is control. Prosecutors will assemble a dozen or so of CIA’s get-out-of-jail-free cards in law, regulation, judicial precedent, and sub rosa administrative agreement. Prosecutors will document CIA’s routine impunity for systematic and widespread torture, murder, and aggression by sending armed bands or irregulars.

    As for your suspicions about the Trucker Convey coming to the US, I had a similar thought over the widely publicized by the Fake News warnings from Homeland Security about them planning to disrupt The Superbowl.

    The good news is that dangle failed.

    Now the Pyongyang on the Potomac is back, with the fencing up around the Capitol in preparation for the Potemkin Village Idiot’s SOTU on March 1st.

    Back to Canada for a moment. The main event was the protest at the Ambassador Bridge, not Ottawa. That was a nascent general strike not just of Canadians but Americans as well.

    The current regime in DC, political and permanent government alike, knows good and well the risks under the totality of the current circumstances to either a “Bonus Army” incident (which sunk Hoover in the 1932 election) or, worse, conjuring a general strike which shuts down or tolls deliveries of food and other necessities to the cities.

    You may very well be right. However, please consider another tactic.
    The “demonstrations” were supposed to be violent, but the demonstrators did not “take the bait”.

    The demonstrators had a party atmosphere which made it extremely difficult for the “authorities” to “start something” (false flag).

    This put the government in a very strange position–not knowing what to do next, they HAD to use violence to “quell the (non) disturbance”.

    I think the Canadian government screwed up big time. Of course, the “mainstream media” has the government’s back, but that too is fading as ordinary people distrust the media just as much as they distrust the government.

    All one has to do is observe the selective reporting that the media has been responsible for, giving the government a “pass”.

    Most people are unaware that Canadians, in general are peaceful people who believe in “good government” and pride themselves as being a part of an “evolutionary society”, unlike the USA which historically is a “revolutionary society”.

    Not mentioned are the “bank runs” that ordinary Canadian citizens are participating in, hence the government threatening to freeze the accounts of the demonstrators–an excuse to hide the real reasons for the bank runs.

    The government will bluster about the “emergency powers” put in place, but will actually have little power to quell the upcoming truckers’ strike, which may escalate into a general strike.

    There is already much talk about denying deliveries to Ottawa and to government agencies and police departments.

    In my humble opinion, the truckers still have the upper hand and should shut down the country.

    I must respectfully disagree with you that the Canadian government has the “upper hand” in the truckers actions. The threat of seizing funds is backfiring, causing “bank runs” by the populace.
    In fact, the Canadian government got caught with its pants down, expecting violence but getting none. The truckers had a “party atmosphere” making it extremely difficult for the government to employ its “false flag” operation. The government HAD to step in and foment violence of its own. A lot of Canadians finally received a “wake-up call” as to the illegal, criminal machinations of their government. Even the provincial “premiers” are waking up to the situation, rescinding some of their own “mandates”.

    As an Afghan and as a second generation refugee who until recently lived in the West but decided to move back to Afghanistan will say this: yes things are very very bad here. No jobs, lines of young, old, children waiting outside NGO’s for food handouts. But I can tell you the spirit of people are not broken. There is a sense that a major dark sinister shadow has finally left Afghanistan ( the Americans of course) and that things will get better from here on. Everyone in Afghanistan has experienced pain, death of loved ones, hunger, tragedies. We have developed the capacity to deal with it. We will rise from this. There is an air of hope and also pride that we kicked the yankees out with all their laser guided bombs and night vision googles and all the fancy machines. I got to say that there is a certain satisfaction that comes with defeating a bully. Money is scarce but it is being utilized well by the current gov as they are not corrupt one bit, unlike the American House Negroes Karzai and Ghani. There are no covid mandates, people are free, we share our food with neighbors, there are countless acts of charity which revives the soul like nothing else. We will do fine. But boy is America, the place I called home for 20 years, is falling. It’s sad. But it was inevitable. When you have gays, feminists, and satanists running the show what else you expect. Stay well my friends and don’t worry about Afghanistan. It was there before and it will always be there after.

    If you have any familiarity with the Bible at all, it should be clear that God is not our baby sitter who heals all our hurts and booboos – as is often the view of many pew sitters who hear endless sermons dispensing pabulum from the pulpits. Read Hebrews 5:11-14 sometime and check your own level of discernment to distinguish good from evil. Frankly, it took me years to finally start getting the idea – having been indoctrinated in DaAmericanWay of everyone being ‘equal’ – which is pure bullshit!
    How else can you explain the FACT that the two North American nations ‘elected’ a princely pr^ck and an addled a\$\$hole as their ‘leaders’? Just a coincidence?

    So he instructed me to build all the stairs through out the entire Hotel – all by myself { which was OK} When he gave me the rise per stair , I told him he couldn’t use that large of a step because the fire marshall won’t accept that large rise. He said to me – It’s do it – or the HiWay.

    So I built every set of stairs on each end of the building 5 Stories}to his illegal stair plan . After that I finished rough framing the cupola roof in the Grand entry and was let go. A month later the owner of the construction Company, that also knew that I was a superintendent on other jobs called me up to discuss those stairs I built.
    I honestly told him that I informed his Super that the Fire Marshall would not accept those stairs and was told to DO IT. Then I asked the Owner if he was finished with tearing out my stairs and building them right. He said they are still working on all the stairs in the Hotel – and hung up

    Damn! I wish you were wrong; but I think you are (mostly) correct. But here’s a report from the ground: (re: “rescinding” vax passes): Newark NJ – dynastic Af Amer mayor (son of the famous poet and former mayor Leroy Jones / Baraka) promulgated one of the most robust vax pass regimes in the USA on or about 1/1/2022; fast forward to 2/17/2022 – 6 weeks – and it’s “never mind” a new Executive Order – 30 words or so, rescinded the vax pass EO. Why? Well it “stinks” but more in the way that Af Amer urban politics typically does: there was simply no will and no ability to carry it out. The Order was totally ignored by almost every single commercial establishment in the city; the main public library was said to be an exception; enforcement efforts were non-existent; public acceptance of it – in a predominantly Af American city with low rates of vaccination- was minimal to absent.

    My point? I suppose the old guidance about ascribing to malice vs incompetence, danger of. Other national/ public health leaders may be into serious ass covering mode as evidence of extreme levels of post vax death and injury become ever more difficult to conceal. “It was a voluntary decision” looks to be a possible mantra in the months ahead.

    The reality is that none of us has a clear perception of the whole process as the events unfold on a day-to-day basis. I started life as Phil likely did by trusting the adults, then trusting my teachers until the point where I could see all by myself. Some large scale processes such as wars develop over long periods of time and it takes some time after they end to get the whole picture correct. So I can understand that it took decades for Phil to put the pieces of the puzzle together. I went through a similar evolution myself.

    There are two critical points. 1. Important pieces of information may take a long time to surface, and 2. the processeses involved develop over long time frames beyond the usual scope of people interests.

    They can make it happen because they control the world’s central banks, and therefore the world’s money supply. So, unless that changes, it doesn’t matter who is elected because they can control any politician that matters to them. We can’t vote ourselves out of jewish occupation.

    When a currency, not money, goes bust do to inflation / hyperinflation, if the gov’t wants to survive, it must find an alternative to keep the wheels of industry and commerce spinning. Right now, in Turkey, Erdoğan has called for his population to liberate the gold they have hidden under their collective mattresses and turn it into the gov’t on a scheme that only Rube Goldberg could love. Anyone stupid enough to go along will get what he deserves.

    Note that it’s gold he’s after and not Euros, Dollars, etc. The population may already have some Euros and / or Dollars for small transactions when their Lira becomes completely worthless. The Central Bank may also have some of those currencies but it’s clear they’re running low. Only gold is going to supply him with a way to not get strung up. He’s trying to use the only real money available to him to put something of value behind the Lira to prevent further purchasing power erosion or in the final stages, have gold to revalue the Lira.

    When the US Dollar fails, the average US resident doesn’t have any other currencies and probably doesn’t have any gold or silver to speak of. The call will go out to confiscate gold as was done before and some will be dumb enough to give up their only universally recognized money for some newly issued pieces of paper. But since the Dollar is the world’s reserve currency, it would take a very large quantity of gold to back the Dollar since there’s so much of it floating around. I expect the Dollar to disappear and a new bullshit currency to replace it.

    It is gold and possibly silver that will be used to back currencies all over the world because no gov’t is going to cut out their profitable middleman of currency and allow gold and silver to function as money. This means a revaluation of all currencies against gold and silver is the most likely way to make currencies represent value once again.

    There will be chaos for a time. There will be nowhere in the world to hide from the fallout although some places may be better than others. A Bretton Woods #2 is likely to have all the criminals agree on how to jump start everyone’s economies and the only option is to back currencies, either the existing ones or new ones, with something of intrinsic value. I’m certain gold and silver will play a large part along with other world traded commodities. Eventually, only easily stored and moved commodities (gold and silver) will be recognized before the criminals once again start depreciating their currencies. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    If the crime families known as governments manage to restart economies with a stable money, they may survive. If things go bad and stay bad for any appreciable time, then I think populations will line up their “leaders” Ceaușescu style.

    I expect a full military dictatorship in the US almost instantly after a Dollar collapse with most other western countries following a script that probably already exists.

    I take your point. Thank you for your civil reply.
    My point is that many of the actions perpetrated by the Clinton Administration were worse than the Iraq War in nature, but not in scale. The forcible expulsion of ethnic Serbs from Krajina in 1995 was the first such action in Europe since the immediate post-War II period. This was done with the collusion of America and the NATO powers. The 1999 NATO attack on Serbia was an agressive war, waged without declaration of war or consent of the UN Security Council. 20 years later NATO troops are still in Kosovo, and the country is to all intents and purposes a NATO protectorate.
    Then in 1999, NATO expanded eastwards, contrary to verbal and written undertakings made to Russia on the matter.

    Dr Giraldi, by his own admission, speaks Turkish, has worked in Turkey for the CIA and has “run” Turkish agents. Throughout the period mentioned, Turkey was supplying weapons and support to Muslim Bosnians and Kosovars, some of them Islamists, with NATO assistance.

    See, that’s what’s overlooked by all here: not only did they not attempt to take this highest-value asset alive (if he was indeed still alive at the time,) but they dealt with him by summary justice, as in a “wronged nation” vindicated by stringing him up, no trial, no questions asked, nothing but pure vigilante justice. Nothing but the public’s low threshold for gratification that this cause of all of our problems was liquidated by the righteous agents of America’s anger for wronged honor.

That means that the US soldiers, the majority claiming to be christian, murdered on command for a paycheck, for educational benefits, etc.

    Every heard of “Collateral Murder”? Simply making the world aware of the video, now titled “Collateral Murder”, shot by the crew of a US helicopter gun ship, got Julian Assange harassed and finally arrested for reporting the truth.

    How do you propose to end such carnage? I can see only one way and that’s to make an example of the human trash that volunteers to be murderers and accessory to murders by imposing the death penalty on the entire lot.

    All those morons are going to be the ones to push you and your family around when the SHTF during the economic collapse that’s being engineered right now. Will you be OK when they murder your family because they were following order and needed the gig to make a living?

    I didn’t mention that I’m from the commuting town of Manhasset on Long Island where too many died that day, and, as well, one of my cousins died in the South Tower. So, I don’t think I’m being callous in calling out the recipients as sellouts compromising their souls to the Synagogue of Satan for pieces of silver.

    There’s also the trauma of the event. The brothers of the cousin who died in the South Tower, who, last time I tried to bring up the proof Israel did 9/11, were unable to talk about it. You’d think two successful adult men would be more than willing to discover the truth, yet such is the power of the mind fuck over 9/11 on those whose thoughts are authored by TV news, that it still comes down to, if we’re honest about it, fear of the Jews. Apparently a new Beemer or addition on the house is more important that finding out who murdered their relatives.

    Trump advocated making American interests a priority in foreign policy while maintaining peaceful COexistance with Russia/China…

    LOL! Con man Trump was fake opposition. The presidential poseur thought he could have it both ways – lying and posturing and pretending to put America first, while serving Israel and his jew handlers, and doing all kinds of provocations against both Russia and China. Trump could’ve made peace with both countries and put an end to the Satanic U.S. foreign policy; instead Trump set the stage for Biden and WW3.

    The Trucker Convoy was an uprising by a segment of the producing class that scared the Hell out of the non-producing class, who responded with overly heavy-handed actions that exposes their vulnerability for all the world to see.

  147. @The Real World

    LOL “Little Fidel Trudeau” that is good, I will now call him little Fidel Turdeau.

    I agree mightily with this comment, (the trucker convoy) looks in the rear view mirror as a staged orchestrated event to usher in a police state. The government got everything it wanted, the people got completely screwed. The freezing of bank accounts – is that also part of the plan – they are freezing Russian accounts today also – new trend?

    (((Once is an Accident, twice a coincidence, three times a pattern.)))

    The so-called “great reset” may well be an engineered event by crashing the system. Freezing your bank account over a (legal) donation? That is beyond extreme, it is state terrorism against the individual. Your right to choose and express yourself completely negated. How do you pay rent/mortgage? Buy food? Gasoline? And in Canada not getting food or heat is deadly this time of the year – a death sentence – and they are doing it for real, making it permanent. To me this seems like a plan they are implementing – the long feared Jew World Order where a handful of Supremacist Talmudic Jews dictate reality to the rest of the world using an iron rod on the Goyim.

    Freezing your money for any reason should be a crime – and usually is used against oligarchs and state actors, not moms on welfare with minimum wage jobs, and without due process – just an accusation made by some little shitstain of Fidel. Really, this freezing of your bank account is beyond Covid insanity. It looks very intentional – pre-planned warfare on the legally disarmed citizens by a rogue communist regime – and part of a world wide push for world totalitarian statism.

    And what about these f-cking banks where you deposited your hard earned money freezing your access to your money? WTF over? And how does the government even know about your account or what bank you have? The individual-bank relationship should be private, and the government – a known terroristic criminal operation – should never be party to your personal finances like your account numbers. The banks should have resisted any government overreach like this but they did not -so why in the f-ck would you keep your money in a bank that is a slavish Turdeau political whore? I mean Canadians ought to be yanking their money out of the banks ASAP.

    Really, if your money is not safe in your local bank, which pays zero interest, what motivation do you have to keep your money there when at any moment they can just seize it? This is a nightmare on steroids, and little mini me Fidel may have just tipped the rest of the world the end game. I am sure those with money and who are paying attention are getting mighty nervous about any of this play in their nation – like Amerika – where some truckers are steam rolling to D.C. – home of the Jan 6th arrests and lockup with no charges.

    It may make sense to start moving your liquid assets to accounts not associated with your name, numbered accounts in a foreign state. This shot across the bow in Canada is a declaration of war on all of us. I think it is safe to say to start getting prepared to move your money to a safe place is in order. Then we have Russia, a nation state with state of the art hypersonic nuclear missiles being made a non-entity with sanctions. So if Russia can’t trade with the world maybe sending a missile into London financial district and NYC might be a survival move on their part. Really, they don’t have to take it like we do, they have the means to blow you away.

    Can you imagine the stock market collapse if a major financial center was nuked? What is your house worth if you live in a target zone, or down wind of fallout? The great reset can be achieved with a very limited nuclear strike. WW3 is a very ill conceived and bad idea, we do not live in a WW2 world before rocket technology. Biden-Blinken team of Jew Ziohacks seem intent on negating Russia from the world stage – well maybe Putin is a better chess player. Biden (and his Jew team) seem reckless and desperate – trying to change the Covid narrative – to a war narrative – to blame the war on the financial collapse as the Fed gets ready to jack interest rates to the moon.

    Access to bank accounts derives from the time of the Patriot Act, which granted the government surveillance rights over all private financial transactions (in the name of monitoring terrorist groups’ fund transfers).

    Since the Patriot Act, nothing is private. Not your conversations with your psychiatrist or with your priest. Not your bank account. Not your medical records. Nothing is private, nothing is sacrosanct.

    It’s important to remember that George W Bush introduced that deceptive piece of legislation. As I keep saying, there are no good guys in this saga. They’re tag teaming us with good cop / bad cop while both parties encroach on our civil rights and destroy our lives.

    I was watching Tucker Carlson tonight. He made some excellent points about why do we have to hate Putin? He gave some really good coverage about the Canadian crisis. But right after him they brought on some General Keane who supports Biden’s agenda of confronting Putin by sending military units to Eastern Europe. So even Fox News doesn’t have a consistent storyline or a clear agenda.

    I think the only reasonable response is to minimize our involvement with the system as much as possible, scale back our consumption habits, give as much money away to a worthy charity as possible, and accept the fact that we are living under tyranny and cannot make any meaningful impact on the system at large.

    Since Jews want to dominate the planet and the Taliban (Reagan’s freedom fighters) successfully repealed ZOG Amerika then starving and killing them off is the next step. Thus Ziowhore Biden is doing the devil’s work by taking away funds. Perfectly logical and to be expected. ZOG wants every Afghani dead, end of story, period. Any heart warming humanitarian aid expectations and hand wringing is only propaganda for the public to lap up and hide the real iron fist of ZOG operations.

    If you all remember, during our greatest recent golden era under Ronnie Raygun Reagan, we sent Saddam against Iran in a 8 year war, and Rumsfeld even was sent over with some chemical weapons to kill them pesky Iranians who dared defy the Rothschild Zionist Banking Cartel of Pure Evil. The United States once allied with Iran now became their number one enemy, and under a Republican President we sent a million or more Iranians to death in a decade long war that Jew whore ZOG Amerika fomented.

    Iran freed itself from ZOG, they ousted the ZOG puppet Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, they got control of their oil back, so of course we put sanctions on Iranian oil so they can not sell it. That was 40 years ago and still to this day Israhell attacks Iranian oil ships. We hate Iran because they defied our power, and now we hate Afghanistan for the same reason. Iran our bestest middle east oil ally became our nemesis when they broke free – thus the same for Afghanistan.

    Also, this incredible hate for another nation was demonstrated after 911, Afghanis got fingered for the crime that Israel did. Israel did 911 and no Muslim or Aghani was even involved – yet to this day the FBI Zionist WHORES still have Afghanis as pilots of the ill fated remote controlled aircraft used as flying torpedoes against David Rockefeller’s towers. This lie is one of the greatest evils under an Jewish controlled government and goes directly against the Holy book words the Judeo-Christian demons say they subscribe to.

    Christian Amerika is fully in on it with the Jews even thought their holy book condemns false witness (blaming Afghanistan for the 911 attack).

    Exodus 20:16 ESV
    “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

    Deuteronomy 5:20 ESV
    “‘And you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

    Proverbs 3:30 ESV
    Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm.

    To this day, every damn Christian denomination goes fully along with the official 911 narrative.


    And what did that pig Jewess Madeline Albright say about the post war deaths in Iraq?

    Death of 500,000 Innocent Children is Worth It – We Want Oil – Madeline Albright

    So IMO the people of Afghanistan are completely f-cked unless the cozy up to Iran, China, and Russia for salvation. ZOG intends to kill them all, end of story, period.

    Amerikans live in a bubble fantasy world of Jewish false narrative. The rest of the world hates how we treat them unfairly, how we bully lesser nations, how we lay waste to whole nation states, and are intimidated by threats of sanctions.

    Sooner or later the chickens will be coming home to roost and accountability for America’s war crimes will be demanded. Stay tuned.

    It is very possible, after decades of war, threats, sanctions, assassinations, coups, blackmail, skullduggery that some nation, like Russia, says, you know if they try to starve us to death maybe we should just nuke them in a first strike. Political decisions can be cold and calculated and they also can be fueled by hatred and emotions, perhaps some day Putin says “fuck you, you fucking, fucks” and launches on the US-UK-Israel axis of pure evil.

    I am surprised that we still exist, actually. How much more is the world going to tolerate our evil? A holy man might say our crimes have reached heaven, and the world cries out for justice. A New Ager might say our karma has reached a limit. I think that Putin has been building his armed forces and nuclear weaponry insuring that they can win, they do not want to be the next Germany, which went to war before they had the ability to insure a clear win against ZOG.

    There are many parallels to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to save ethnic Russians like Germany invading Poland to save ethnic Germans from genocide. It seems obviosu to me Jewish power is baiting Putin just as they baited Hitler. Hitler went to war to early, he almost had the nuclear bomb, he had functional rockets and turbine engines. He could of won if he spent a decade longer getting ready. Likewise Putin is being baited, but Putin is a master player and is getting ready, he is testing his nuclear forces, he is developing first strike ability. Biden-Blinken team are fools taunting the bear, the bear might spin around and claw them in the face.

    Biden is an old man, an immoral pedo politician, a put up job of ZOG – and we all know that if Israel is going to dominate the world from Jerusalam then they must put Amerika down – so they have a crazy old man at the helm who provokes a nuclear strike. That is my opinion of the real politick going on, Amerika is going to be killed by Israel by using Russia as the executioner.


    This is what the Israeli parasite thinks about Amerika:

    America is a golden calf; and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit; so, we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves. — Bibi Netanyahu Finks Bar Jerusalem

    We also have John Titor’s Nuclear War prediction:

    The most immediate of Titor’s predictions was of an upcoming civil war in the United States having to do with “order and rights”. He described it as beginning in 2004, with civil unrest surrounding the presidential election of that year. This civil conflict that he characterizes as “having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse” will be “pretty much at everyone’s doorstep” and erupts by 2008.

    Titor claimed that as a 13-year old in 2011, he fought with the Fighting Diamondbacks, a shotgun infantry unit of Florida, for at least four years. However, in other posts he describes himself as hiding from the war. As a result of the war, the United States splits into five regions based on various factors and differing military objectives. This civil war, according to Titor, will end in 2015 with a brief but intense World War III:

    In 2015, Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the United States (which is the “other side” of the civil war from my perspective), China, and Europe. The United States counter attacks. The US cities are destroyed along with the AFE (American Federal Empire)…thus we (in the country) won. The European Union and China were also destroyed.

    Titor refers to the exchange as N Day. Washington, D.C. and Jacksonville, Florida are specifically mentioned as being hit. After the war, Omaha, Nebraska is the nation’s new capital city.

    When armies surround towns, navies surround nations, tractors and trucks block access, railroads are decommissioned, bankers refuse services, energy prices are raised <=millions die. Sanctions are about causing a target to suffer.

    When the oligarchs in the sanction imposing nation state win, they steal everything the Oligarchs in the sanctioned victim nation state had. The winning Oligarchs take everything: the ordinary spoils of war, the women, the oligarch owned businesses, and they convert the governed classes, into cheap slave-like labor and put them to work in winner owned monopoly protected enterprises.

    Some how governments believe they have a duty to protect themselves and the oligarch that directs such governments, against the demands of governed citizens. IMO, no member of the governed class of any nation state should allow government to treat its citizens as enemies of the state. Humans have the right of self determination, meaning governments serve and constitutions should survive only if the governed citizens allow it to be so. So citizen protest is warning which governments often refuse to heed.

    Protest by citizens against government actions/inactions or intentions has bothered the Oligarchs for centuries. Protesters are citizens. Protesters have a right to be effectively heard and to have the subject of their concerns circulated with sufficient reach and depth for all of the governed to be able to engage the subject and to render an opinion relating to the issue contained in the protest. Government has a duty to comply its decisions and to conform its actions to the demands of the governed masses. The masses have a right to know about the infringements of governments. Protest make those infringements known to the governed, but governments encourage the suppression of the subject matter of the protest to its citizen audiences because governments wish to ignore citizen grievances.

    When governments call out their military to suppress citizen protest, the government that was, ceases to be, because martial law means the cessation of civil existence. In such circumstance, the government has become a group of armed and dangerous sorts insisting on having their way, instead of a group of persons appointed by the governed to operate the government.


    Constitutions restrain lawmakers, laws, military, governors and commercial activity and protect human rights.

    Citizenship implies <=politically determined, constitutionally acceptable, civil law will prevail? Domestic protest is not the same as an invading third party. Domestic protest is an argument seeking subject-of-the-protest exposure to mass fellow citizen audiences. Domestic protest is an argument between the governed and the governors. And the governors have no right, to deny citizens their civil or human rights. To do so is a threat to use the power of the state to protect the interest of the state directed against its citizens {Terrorism]?

    Domestic protesters are citizens of the nation state, and do not intend, by their protest, to have their citizenship disenfranchised nor do they intend to deny the state its government. They merely want the support of fellow citizens to encourage the government to address the concerns expressed in the protest.

    A principle of human rights is that the governed have unlimited right to effectively protest against governments that oppose their views, or ignore their needs, etc. maybe with containment necessary for safety, but definitely not with reprisal. Governments become organized criminal gangs when they fail to serve the needs and wants of the people they govern. Al Capone headed a criminal organization which delivered protesters to their grave.

    Blockades are often effective means of protest, because protest exposes the subject of the protest to the masses, and because protest redirect the attentions of those who govern to the needs, wants and expectations of those who are the governed.

    A government should not be able to impose on its citizens laws or make rules which infringe obligations to its citizens or that deny citizenship rights for protests. The authority to form and continue governments comes from the permission of those who are the governed. Protest is an expression of dissatisfaction which left unresolved or unsatisfied, leads to the end of the state.

    IMO, It is the duty of every citizen to defend the right of fellow citizens to conduct effective protest that bring to light unconscionable conditions imposed by the state, A citizen who rises in protest against the state is exercising his right as a human to protest infringements on citizen right to pursue happiness. Protest by citizens should not make the protester into an enemy of the state, even if such protester is armed during his protest, such protesting citizen is exercising his or her human right to effectively present the argument that the state has failed it citizens to the entire audience of citizens. Protest has become necessary because the state has allowed private media to block access to substantial audiences.

    The object of protest is not to defeat the state, but instead to inform and to enlist the power of fellow citizens in a political effort to cause the state to amend the activities or change its decision to accord with the narrative outlined in the protest.

    Citizens who protest <=object to the conduct of the state are miffed that the objections have not become national narratives so the grievance can achieve sufficient political force to correct the subject of the grievance .

    Governments unable to shoot protesting citizens will generally find another way to kill the nuisance of protest. Denying civil and human rights to governed persons is an act by the state of Terrorism. The governors seek to punish and banish those who protest by replacing their civil constitutional rights with martial law and military dictatorial justice (transform domestic citizen to into domestic terrorist is an act of war declared by the state against protesting citizens. Which means citizens, classified as domestic terrorist, must seek protections found in the Geneva Convention and international law.

But I am beginning to believe every government in every western nation state is nothing short of being armed and dangerous opponents of the basic needs and wants of humanity. Criminal organizations organized as nations, who threaten its citizens with loss of civil and human rights are in effect blackmailing those they govern when they threaten classification as domestic terrorist and denial of civil rights in military courts.

    The suffering labor at the hands of the corporations experienced between 1850 and 1930 tracts what i see developing between governed people and their oligarch owned and controlled governments.
    No terror is more threatening than an armed soldiers seeking to lock up or shoot those who protest the nation state protected interest of an Oligarch or one of his corporations.

    The oligarchs in America, first destroyed America's once efficient rail way system, then they stacked up the containers at the seaports and slowed down the release, of those miles and miles of containers, to the Truckers, with objective to deny sellable inventory to small business. The shelves in the stores in small town America are empty. But that was not enough, the Oligarchs then imposed the Covid project to destroy any chance that non digital platform small business in America might recover. All of this was done to force and trap "people and business" to limit their social and commercial activities to the oligarch-owned, access-controlled, 5g enhanced, digital surveillance-trap [the digital platform].

    “ To me, gold at 18oo USD is a joke. They control it all.”

    Yes indeed. The banksters control the game through the paper and the futures market. Since the mass of currencies are exploding exponentially while the supply of precious metals is barely increasing with signs of peak production starting to show, creating trust in failing currencies will require gold and silver backing but at a revised monetary value that can go 10 times more than the currently rigged prices.

    And starving the beast means that any gold and silver investor should own physical gold and silver which would stifle the capacity of the speculators to manipulate the market. The weird thing is that gold and silver miners are not helping the price of the commodity by keeping a percentage of their production in storage. If most precious metal investors dump the mining stocks while keeping their physical stock, then the miners might be obliged to keep some of their production away from the banksters and the speculators and check their shenanigans. Let us remember when silver nudged the USD 50 mark, just as everybody was focused on the presidential election in the U.S., the puppet of globalism Prime Minister Modi decided to ban the two mostly used Rupee denominations pushing most Indian cash hoarders into a corner and forcing them to release their physical silver holdings to compensate for the old bills that they could not declare or could not exchange. Hence the precipitous fall of the silver ounce from the USD 50 benchmark.

    Silver is horribly underpriced as it is the only commodity that did not reach its high of forty years ago despite the green energy push that requires enormous amounts of silver.

    Britain’s leaders served up the empire on a silver platter for the favor of their Jewish paymasters. It began with the lead-up to WWI and culminated with that fat pig Churchill war-mongering against Germany before and throughout WWII for the sake of getting his bar-bill paid by ‘The Focus’, the Churchill pressure group organized by the Board of Jewish Deputies in England and chaired by a man called Sir Bernard Waley Cohen. (After WWII, cudgel duty was passed from Britain to the U.S., and we have been the Jews’ global thug ever since.)

    It looks as if America’s leaders are doing the same to the U.S. as England’s did to the British Empire last century. A war with Russia would be just the thing to take America down, passing cudgel duty to China for a while.

    Most American people (and servicemen are no different) are terribly educated and wholly misinformed regarding history and politics. Our mass media keeps the veil over their eyes once they leave school. Accordingly, they don’t doubt the “virtue” of American wars, and would, therefore, never dream of violating orders to go to battle, thinking them entirely lawful and legitimate.

    They are lied into war and placed in impossible kill-or-be-killed situations. To try the soldiers for war crimes, as suggested by Roatan Bill, would be absurd, given how little they understand the real reasons for our wars.

    By the way, this ignorance is not just endemic to the lower ranks; most admirals and generals are ignorant of the facts. I’ve known many, and they never fail to disappoint.

    The real joke is silver. Silver is coming out of the ground at a ration of 7 to 1 gold. Right now, the rigged ratio is hovering near 80. At least one silver supplier has refused to supply any silver to the market because the price is too low.

    Silver is an industrial metal and there aren’t any substitutes for most applications. That means a constant demand. For the last several years, mining supply has been less than demand with junk and other already above ground silver making up the difference. That can’t go on forever.

    The author of this article at The Atlantic magazine, supporting a Ukrainian military insurgency against the Russians, was a prominent neocon in the George W Bush administration. As I have written before, I had him for a class in international relations when I was a Harvard undergraduate in 1979. In one class Cohen told the shocked student audience that Hitler would have been an ideal American ally had he not been an anti-Semite. Note that, in Cohen’s opinion, the only reason to disqualify Hitler was his attitude to Jews. His other attitudes and behaviors were perfectly acceptable to this budding Jewish neocon. (If you doubt his Jewish allegiance, Cohen’s wife Judy was head of the Harvard Hillel Jewish student association.)

    After reading his article, I sat back reflecting on the curious fact that Cohen and people like him are so eager to deploy American military forces and money anywhere around the world that suits their interests. And it suddenly struck me that for these Jewish supremacists America is a GOLEM, a soulless powerful creature to deploy at will to serve their own selfish national interests. In their pompous patronizing perspective America — like a Golem — has no soul, doesn’t feel pain, doesn’t have a conscience, is a Superman kind of figure that exists purely to take orders from its Jewish masters.

    I think this concept is very helpful to understanding how the Jews in our midst view US. We not only have to grow a pair to throw off their domination but we have to find our soul. While seemingly daunting, it also proves that our liberation is entirely within our own grasp and within our own power.

    Note that Jewry dominates by negation and negativity. It tells us that Putin is a Boshevik, Assad is killing his people with chemical weapons, Kaddafi is a megalomaniac who did Lockerbie, Saddam is evil, Taliban are repressive, etc etc ad nauseum. It treats us like attack dogs on a leash, always straining to jump into action and kill someone. Jewry keeps us living in a permanent state of tension expectation fear always on edge always in crisis mode. (This is exactly how ZOG treats the Israeli population as well.)

    Even here at TUR we thrive on negativity. We are skeptics and cynics not trusting anyone or anything. We can refute any standard narrative. We know they are always lying to all of us. But while this is an important level of discernment, this is not enough for national liberation. That requires much more, specifically a positive self-image.

    I don’t know what that can be in occupied America. I am very cynical about our founding. I think it was an ungodly rebellion against the British monarchy (the NT instructs us to submit to our rulers). I accept the evidence that the American Revolution was fomented by Catholics seeking revenge on England for leaving Rome and by Jewish Illuminati seeking a refuge from the Catholic Inquisitors. (Talk about strange bedfellows.) I think America was founded as a plantation, despising labor, venerating rich owners and celebrities, devoid of true morality or ethics, a money making machine. America from its inception imported low class laborers (and slaves) to fill the coffers of the owner class. We have always been denied any true national identity apart from lust for mammon and idolizing fame fortune and fortitude. None of this permits us to form a coherent national identity, however, and leaves us vulnerable to Jewish internationalist depredations.

    This is why Putin stresses the Russian Orthodox Church, because that underlies the Russian national identity by forming its soul. Even Chinese Communism is a kind of fusion of socialism with tradition Chinese values like Confucianism Taoism and Buddhism. The CCP allows these ideologies to form a coherent national identity and protects the state from the kinds of foreign depredations that marked the 100 years of shame.

    America has no positive identity. The internet has allowed us to recognize that the propaganda we have imbibed for decades is a sham: there is no true opportunity or economic mobility: class structures are more stratified here than in Europe, no equal justice under the law but rather justice to the highest bidder, affirmative action penalizes the smart and successful and installs an underclass, foreign policy is in thrall to ZOG, our economy is controlled by European Jewish bankers, Hollywood is a tawdry brainwashing industry, medicine is designed to perpetuate illness in order to enrich Big Pharma, our colleges and universities sell off our knowledge to any foreign adversary who can pay high tuition, our national culture is stupefaction to idiotic banal soul-destroying “entertainment” and professional sports that are controlled by the gambling industry.

    This false testimony is a very important accusation against the perpetrators of the 9/11 Zionist Terrorist Charade. According to the Bible, false witnesses are given the penalty they tried to force onto the object of their slander. If witnesses testify falsely that someone murdered or raped (both capital crimes) and their testimony is proven false, they are then given the same death penalty they tried to foist onto someone else.

    According to this principle, all the figures behind 9/11, who falsely incriminated the Muslim world, deserve the death penalty. And so do the members of the mass media who promoted their lies. This means that from a Biblical perspective the entire American establishment deserves destruction.

    And this suits the Jewish overlords perfectly, since they deployed us to do their dirty work and they consider all of us worthy of either slavery or destruction since we are soulless Golems.

    I recall in the original story of the Golem created by a Rabbi Loewy of Prague, he destroyed his monstrous creation as soon as it began to assert its own independent will. This is PRECISELY the Jewish Plan for US. If you carefully examine history you will find that any country that expresses compassion and favor to the Jews soon after is destroyed. This happened to the Persians right after the Esther story when she convinced her husband the Emperor to save the Jews or Persia from Haman’s plot to kill them all and to expropriate their wealth. Soon after this “miracle” on behalf of Jewry, Persia sustained a series of defeats by the Greeks (Salamis and Marathon) that spelled the demise of her Empire.

    See these links about the original Golem Legend:


    In Jewish legend, the Golem was a man-made creature endowed with enormous strength. Rabbi Judah Loew of Prague, also know as the Maharal, created him of clay and gave him life by putting a piece of paper with the secret name of God under his tongue.
    The Golem helped the Jews defend themselves against anti-Semitic rioters, but one day he turned against his creator. He sowed ruin and destruction, until, at the last moment, the rabbi succeeded in extracting the piece of paper from his mouth. The Golem turned back into a heap of clay.
    There was a time, wrote the Yiddish author I.L. Peretz, a terrible time, when the ghetto of Prague was under assault. For the Jews had received word that their women were about to be raped, their children about to be burned alive, and their men about to be slaughtered. Just when the situation seemed beyond hope and the end imminent, the great Maharal of Prague, Rabbi Yehuda Loew, set aside his studies of the Gemara and went out into the street. He went up to a large pile of clay, took it into his hands, and fashioned the image of a man. The rabbi breathed into the nostrils of the golem, and the thing began to move. Then he whispered into its ear the name of the Holy One, and the golem rose up. The rabbi turned to go back into the house of prayer, and the golem turned to leave the ghetto. Once outside the ghetto, the golem fell upon our enemies and attacked them without mercy.

    Soon Prague was littered with bodies. It is said that the golem’s attack went on for days. When Friday came and the clock struck 12, the golem was still hard at his bloody work.

    The head of the ghetto went to the rabbi and cried, “Rabbi, the golem is slaughtering all the goyim of Prague! If this goes on, there will not be a single Gentile left….”

    Hearing this outcry, the Maharal left his studies once more. He approached the altar and there offered up the psalm called “The Song of the Sabbath.”

    As soon as the words of the psalm came from the rabbi’s lips, the golem ceased its killing and returned to the ghetto. Once in the ghetto, it went to the house of prayer and walked up to the rabbi, where it stood motionless. The rabbi whispered into the golem’s ear, and its eyes closed shut. Thus the soul that the rabbi had breathed into it fled, and the golem once again became a mere heap of clay.

    the long known but closely guarded fact that we are approaching a “little ice age”, the ptb are going to scream and squirm to obscure the truth.


    I agree that we are approaching another little ice age, and the global warming threat is a hoax. My comment on this appears to be taken down, so here is a summary without any charts. If the MSM is shoving “global warming” and “climate change” in your face nonstop to push political agenda it is for certain not science, it is politics. And since CO2 is a trace gas, you should be skeptical that a trace gas controls the thermodynamics of a planet. In fact the geologic data says CO2 has no effect on ice ages, and CO2 can be way over 3,000 ppm at an ice age onset.

    Furthermore the so-called consensus of scientists in support of this (disproven) theory is itself manufactured. And since the MSM will not allow any real scientists to debate this on the television you should take that as confirmation they are lying their damn asses off about it. Then there is the ice core data that shows that CO2 follows temperature, not forcing it like they claim. And there are the 75 failed computer models that still to this day fail to predict temperature based on the assumption that CO2 increase warms.

    Now what is really tragic, huge amounts of public funds went chasing after solar panels and electric cars all based on this warming theory being correct. It is not correct, so that means shutting down coal fired electric plants is suicidal. And we have Bill Gates wanting to obscure the sun to reduce warming effect which doesn’t even exist. Furthermore, many real climate websites have proven NASA and other government funded agencies are faking the data sets to prove warming.

    You are right.
    Human nature is defective for starts. This “defect” was recognised and stated since immemorial times. It got several names, eg christians call it original sin, buddhists call it the “non-recognising of ultimate nature” (in short, a kind of illusion). This defect can be easily amplified and ramifies into a multitude of of “bugs” (hence the differences and amplitudes define the moral character of each person), and it can also be painfully reduced and corrected through much effort.

    But “temptation”, either through power, material wealth, sense pleasures, etc, they are a real force, very active in this world. This force was also recognised since time immemorial and, as the human nature defect, got also various names. Satan, demons, corruption, etc.

    Now, both sides are very intertwined. One does not exists without the other. The “defects” do not manifest themselves without the temptation. And it’s through their visible manifestation that they can be countered and corrected (if we will so).
    And “temptation” has no power, not even a reason to exist, if the defects are not anymore.

  201. @Joe Levantine

    Nice insightful comment but are precious metals horribly underpriced? Since the Fed was created in 1913 gold has gone from \$20 to \$1900 an ounce. That is a big move, but has it gone up enough with all the recent money printing? According to many (and you), no.


    I don’t know but there are ways of determining a ballpark figure of what gold is worth in today’s prices, and one way I know is compare the weekly wage of a skilled worker to one ounce. For many decades in the 19th century, say 1865 (before the Fed) a week’s worth of work was worth one ounce of gold. So in today’s world, one week would be \$1900 in gold – that is very generous. I don’t know very many blue collar workers who make that much in one week.

    Another way to determine rock bottom price for any commodity is cost of production. The silver mines of Kellogg, Idaho produce silver at around \$10 an oz.

    Entering the new year, the world’s top silver companies averaged \$10.56 in production costs per ounce of silver. But that could change. According to the Silver Institute, global silver production declined in 2016 and should again in 2017.

    Another way is to talk to the gold miners. On the television is a hit show about Yukon gold producers who use millions of dollars of heavy equipment to produce gold. First – they have all new equipment meaning they are making money at today’s prices, and two they say they are making ‘good’ money at current prices.

    So I think I will buy lots of silver and gold if the price dips to the cost of production. I think we are in a massive speculative bubble in stocks and real estate. This is caused by greed and fear of hyperinflation, plus cheap interest rates. In some areas there is panic buying to get out of dollars and into leverage to beat hyperinflation they believe is coming. I think the opposite, the blowoff top is here and interest rates are going to march higher and higher and the Fed will be unable to stop this new trend, because now risk is being priced into bonds. At no time in history is it as dangerous as now to lend to a government – which are all bankrupt, and run by criminal pedophiles who have no intention and no ability to repay debt.

    Certainly, there are a great many of the U.S. government bought and paid for by Israel, but, if anything, such an arrangement attests to the fact that, ultimately, Israel (with Mossad) is behind it all.

    Not an acceptable answer. You are hiding the role of your criminal government in designing and implementing 9/11 to protect a terrorist regime. The terrorist act of 9/11 was NOT possible without full involvement of USG, Bush and neocons many of them Christian Zionists.
    The role of USG was deep and undeniable where willingly participated in every aspect of the 9/11 terror and then fully involved in promoting the LIE and hiding the truth from the public. Later, we witness their role in terrorist act of Spain train bombing and invasion of Iraq where USG made FAKE evidence against Saddam, like the fake charge against Afghanistan. We also watched US secretary Colin Powell accusing Saddam to have WMD by showing FAKE ‘evidence’ on national TV knowing that is lying on behalf of USG. A black man was chosen for this job. The Bush regime knew they were lying to dummies where still many of them believe that Saddam had WMD. You cannot fool anyone except yourself.

    As Salon reported: [The Bush White House promotes the possibility of armed conflict with Iran, a tantalizing passage in Wesley Clark’s new memoir suggests that another war is part of a long-planned Department of Defense strategy that anticipated “regime change” by force in no fewer than seven Mideast states. Critics of the war have often voiced suspicions of such imperial schemes, but this is the first time that a high-ranking former military officer has claimed to know that such plans existed.]

    You make many strong points. Though when I discuss the price of gold, I try to go beyond treating it as a commodity that is subject to the rules of supply and demand.


    Mark Faber, an investment guru of world renown, agrees with you that the price of gold at 1800 is not cheap. As for a layman like myself, I try first to gauge the right price of gold by taking into consideration the cumulative inflation since the Federal Reserve Act was promulgated in 1913. According to the general consensus, the USD has lost close to between 97% to 99% of its value. I will settle at 98% which means a USD 20 price of an ounce of gold in 1923 should be multiplied by 98 to keep up with ‘ official’ inflation figures ( 20×98= 1960). However in the context of runaway total world debt, estimated at 385 trillion dollars, my feeling is that most governments around the world, including the USG, will never be able to pay back their debts, which means sooner or later all fiat will lose public trust and and a reset will have to happen. The only reset that could enhance trust is to return to gold backed currencies. It is estimated that the total stock of gold that had been extracted from the earth throughout history amounts to around 195,000 tons of which close to 34,000 tons are held by central banks. If governments decide to cover their monetary mass with gold, including outstanding debts, then the current total gold stock( private holdings, jewellery, central bank reserves) at today’s prices that amounts to between 11 and 12 trillion USD is woefully inadequate for the purpose. The only solution would be a re-evaluation of the gold price to much higher levels.

    What you mention about the current cost of gold extraction is very true and miners have been doing rather well ever since gold went beyond USD 1500. According to the last article that I read about gold extraction on Zero Hedge around three years ago, the cost varied from USD 900 to USD 1150. So I agree with your argument that one should buy the dips close to the cost of production. But if the confidence in fiat keeps deteriorating as governments incur ever rising levels of debts combined with money creation out of thin air, then it is unlikely that we will see major corrections in the price of precious metals.

    As for silver prices, it is true that it is currently costing between 10 to 11 USD to extract one ounce. Since silver is first and foremost an industrial commodity ( 60% industrial, 25% jewellery, rest private holdings) I agree that its current price is overvalued, but with solar energy being pushed by climate change cultists, I feel that the demand can go way beyond the current supply, and that leaves speculators a chance benefit from potentially higher prices.

    “ In some areas there is panic buying to get out of dollars and into leverage to beat hyperinflation they believe is coming. I think the opposite, the blowoff top is here and interest rates are going to march higher and higher and the Fed will be unable to stop this new trend, because now risk is being priced into bonds.“

    Well, the debate is raging whether we are going into inflation or deflation. Should the FED start raising rates aggressively, the house of card that is the stock market bull will bite the dust. Since stocks, bonds and real estate are the investment domain of the richest 10% with the mega rich 0.1 % owning most of it, I very much doubt the FED will raise interest rates in a way that spoils the party for the rich and mighty. Yet if the FED gets the backbone to crash the markets, then we could see asset deflation combined with consumer inflation with all the supply chain disruptions and the businesses that were permanently closed due to the scamdemic. What we are having now is false inflation figures, if we compare ‘official‘ inflation with Shadow Stats and Chapwood Index, the perfect plan to keep the rich richer and to tax the populace in a stealthy way; I believe the FED will keep the status quo as long as there is no blood on the streets.

  208. A most trivial correction. Although it is on dry land adjoining Virginia and one can walk there without getting wet, The Pentagon is actually in Washington, D.C. Much of the nearby area on the Virginia side of the Potomac River was reclaimed during the building boom around WW II. Reagan National Airport is partially of the same category. This historical curiosity is explained by the legal agreement dating to colonial times. Maryland “owns” the Potomac River in that area. After DC was created, the ownership passed to that entity (the Federal Government). A lesser known curiosity is a few hours south, at Colonial Beach, Virginia. In Prohibition times, this was a popular weekend bayside resort. Virginia had strict alcohol prohibition, but not so Maryland. Some clever built bars on the end of a pier, thus legally remaining in Maryland, thus able to supply thirsty weekenders from the shore. Ain’t free enterprise great?

    The non-White races have produced hundreds of venal, psychotic and rapey warlords for every higher-achieving White despot.

    Consider “General Butt-Naked”

    Brown cannibal warlords like Idi Amin or cocaine gauchos like the Zetas don’t get much attention because they’re commonplace. Murder, mayhem and cannibalism are just “Tuesday” in the third world.

    Let’s not forget israel’s “samson option”…which could be used to facilitate the “new world order”…
    Israel’s nukes are already “embedded” in cities around the world and are ready to be detonated (remotely) at a moment’s notice.
    Of course, the blame will be put on israel’s favorite “enemy of the week” and will be used to “jump start” the “great reset”.
    Look for a nuke to be detonated in Rome or Brussels, Rome being the jews’ European favorite as it is the seat of Catholic Christianity, the jews’ mortal enemy.
    In the United States, Chicago, Atlanta or Los Angeles are likely targets.
    New York City is “off limits” to israeli nukes as it is full of jews.
    Of course, that could change, if the jewish “powers that be” decide on a REAL “holocaust™” this time…unlike the last phony “holocaust™”.

    Soleimani was in Baghdad for peace talks and was falsely accused by the White House of preparing to attack American soldiers.

    Explained here:

    The more that emerges about the assassination of Suleimani, the more the abject criminality of his murder becomes clear. It was carried out neither as a reckless act of revenge nor to ward off unspecified attacks. Rather, it was a calculated act of imperialist terror designed to disrupt talks aimed at defusing tensions in the Persian Gulf and to convince the wavering Gulf monarchies that Washington is prepared to go to war against Iran.

    The USA has always been satanic

    You’re talking about (admittedly painfully naive) badly-educated, politically-gullible but natively-intelligent and hard-working, ambitious, honest WHITE CHRISTIANS.

    You must be thinking about money-grubbing, lying, thieving, sex-obsessed, anti-White racist, Satan-worshipping Bolshevik Jew filth.

    You probably need to sort out that little confusion in your mind.

    I agree with your reasoning and of Yukon J.
    But please don’t forget the major market players also know this too well. And when the market is definitely poised to establish new levels, they always try to get into at the best possible advantage, at all costs.
    In the case of gold, those market players (or market movers) have tried, since some time ago, to stomp down as much as they can, in favor of all their fiat currencies and papers.When they will see these latter are doomed, before they jump aboard on gold (and other things) they will try to create a massive selling to lower the price, to only then buy it confortably a low prices.
    This is something which happens in every trading instrument, at every scale or timeframe. And they laugh when they see all the fools getting in or out at the wrong moments…

    So, in brief, I suspect a good but quick correction to still happen before it goes through the roof.

    US will never destroy itself for a nation utterly irrelevant to it as Ukraine

    No, of course it won’t. How stupid of anyone to have thought that.

    And the U.S. also didn’t waste the lives of 55,000 loyal young American servicemen, chuck away billions of dollars’ worth of military armaments, equipment and supplies, incur the everlasting hatred of a huge chunk of the Far East over a thousand (mostly) accidental atrocities in the jungle hellhole – and traumatise itself into a mentally and emotionally crippled nation with a lost generation of dead, maimed and betrayed Veterans of blood-soaked “national service” for decades to come – all of it for a worthless, festering “communist” shithole like Vietnam which most Americans couldn’t even find on a map.

    And now we have an America whose entire deranged foreign policy is RULED by the whims of the insane, Satan-worshipping Jew filth like Blinken and a thousand others in Washington, who positively WANT to see the end of old traditional, sane, intelligent, controlled, confident and Powerful White America as soon as possible – to make Jews safer than ever before in their money-embezzling, nation -wrecking evil for ever more.

    You might want to consider waking up some time, and trying to live in the real world, friend.

    Who would have thought career political criminals with serious mental issues and video proof of them counting fake ballots and extorting money from Ukraine while his crackhead son sits on a Ukrainian energy company’s board racking in millions would be illegitimately elected to govern a once and powerful nation?

    And now here we are – 48 hours after your prescient comment, the curtain went up on the full-blown madness of the Ukraine shitshow.

    But of course, there’s a very useful little side-effect in play – for the man behind the curtain: with Ukraine ruined, it’s already crumbling physical and economic infrastructure burning down, it’s freedom-loving peoples punished for ever being bold enough to say what they want and don’t want, and the Jews in Washington laughing over popcorn as they watch White Christian Russian soldiers killing White Christian Ukrainian soldiers and civilians, the very last thing anyone will ever be thinking about when the dust settles is… What happened to the EVIDENCE of the extreme corruption of Biden and his scumbag son in Ukraine ?

    Umm… it will be ‘disappeared’ – when the ex-President of Ukraine who knows where ALL the Biden bodies were buried is very quietly and conveniently offed by the Russians (by request) after the truce.

    Another nation-wrecking exercise successfully down the memory hole. Rinse and repeat.

  217. Well said, and thank you for expanding on the rot at the top. For those of us able to rise above and look at the bigger picture, it’s obvious Ukraine is a massive criminal crime scene cover up, the likes of which are global in scale.
    The deal is Putin gets his Ukraine satellite states and Biden gets evidence of Hunter and himself buried, along with billion\$ of other kickbacks and racketeering, and the GlobalHomoZioBIGsRxMIC3BLM get a war to salivate on for awhile.
    Lets hope Russia limits collateral damage on fellow whites to a minimum.
    Enjoy the clown world shot show. lol

    Given the absurd bleating of most knee-jerk peaceniks, (“Stop Russia in its tracks,” “End the invasion,” “Putin!”), I read this list of demands carefully.

    March 1 to 7: International Week of Action to Stop War with Russia
    The conflict in Ukraine has escalated to a dangerous level between two nuclear armed states. The United States and its allies continue to portray the current situation as one of Russian aggression without acknowledging that US-backed Ukrainian forces are attacking the Eastern region of the country and killing citizens of Russian ethnicity.

    This current escalation is a serious threat to world peace and requires a unified and rapid response by anti-war organizations from around the globe to stop a major war.

    To that end, we, the undersigned groups, have agreed to support a week of international action from March 1 to 7 with the following demands on our governments:

    — No war with Russia
    — Stop the NATO expansion
    — No more weapons to Ukraine and the European Union
    — Obey international laws and the UN Charter
    — Resolve the current conflict within the United Nations Security Council
    — Restore the Minsk Agreements
    — De-escalate the threat of a nuclear war

    Not this Christian, and I’ve suspected the true reason for 9-11 from day 1, on 9-11. BTW, I am strictly non-denominational. Christ, not religion, is my battle cry if you know what I mean.
