JesseZ very frustrating host, he spoke longer than Davis, long pauses, elaborating unnecessarily his questions and seemed totally unaware of how much time he was hogging from his invited guest.

In the Soldiers House

.

A soldier sits alone he is of high rank and of proud deportment he is served by his batman.

Both bachelors and both veterans of many campaigns.The soldier has returned from the palace where he has received another decoration

the Medal and the prize are being admired by the Batman.

Batman. ´´General, the king is very grateful for our campaign abroad this past year, a medal of solid gold encrusted with valuable jewels and many tokens in the prize. Enough to buy all the bread in all the bakeries in the kingdom.”

General. ” Yes the King is pleased his campaigns re furnish the treasury, to repay the usurers his international debts and interest.”

In The Soldiers House. All Wars are bankers Wars and everything is a rich mans’ trick.https://web.archive.org/web/20110606082605/http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2003/nov/2/20031102-111400-3720r/

The Washington Times

3 November 2003

Control of Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s shares in the Russian oil giant Yukos have passed to renowned banker Jacob Rothschild, under a deal they concluded prior to Mr. Khodorkovsky’s arrest, the Sunday Times reported.
   Voting rights to the shares passed to Mr. Rothschild, 67, under a “previously unknown arrangement” designed to take effect in the event that Mr. Khodorkovsky could no longer “act as a beneficiary” of the shares, it said.
   Mr. Khodorkovsky, 40, whom Russian authorities arrested at gunpoint and jailed pending further investigation last week, was said by the Sunday Times to have made the arrangement with Mr. Rothschild when he realized he was facing arrest.
   Mr. Rothschild now controls the voting rights on a stake in Yukos worth almost $13.5 billion, the newspaper said in a dispatch from Moscow.
   Mr. Khodorkovsky owns 4 percent of Yukos directly and 22 percent through a trust of which he is the sole beneficiary, according to Russian analysts.

“They discuss the reality of the situation in Ukraine” And so does the latest Russian MOD report according to Colonel Cassad:

1. The offensive of the Russian troops disrupted the plans of the AFU offensive on the DPR and LPR using artillery, missile systems and aviation.

2. On January 22, Russian intelligence intercepted the order of General Balan on the need to complete preparations for offensive actions before February 28, so that the AFU could go on the offensive in March.

3. The operation is progressing according to plan. The main tasks of the first stage of the operation have already been completed.

4. The main priority remains the preservation of civilian lives. Hence the tactics of precision strikes on the military infrastructure and the armed forces of the enemy.

5. The blocking of large cities ensures the shackling of the AFU forces and does not allow the Ukrainian command to transfer reinforcements to the Donbass. The main operation at the moment is in the Donbas. 276 settlements have already been liberated in the DPR and LPR. 93% of the territory of the LPR and 54% of the territory of the DPR have been liberated. The group currently defending in Mariupol has more than 7,000 people.

6. Air supremacy was won by the Russian Aerospace Forces in the first two days of the operation. The organized air defense system, the Ukrainian Air Force and the Ukrainian Navy have virtually ceased to exist.

7. Up to 70% of all military stocks of Ukraine were destroyed as a result of systematic attacks on warehouses. 30 key facilities of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine were destroyed. 68% of enterprises where military equipment was repaired have already been destroyed. At the same time, since the beginning of the Special Military Operation, the Ukrainian army has already destroyed 127 bridges.

8. All the organized reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already been put into operation, there are no new ones. Hence the bet on the mobilization of the untrained contingent. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, 6595 foreign mercenaries are fighting in Ukraine.

9. Total losses of the AFU during the month of operation. About 14,000 killed and about 16,000 wounded (the total losses of the AFU group in the Donbas account for 26% of the personnel). Of the 2,416 combat-ready tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles on February 24, 1,587 were destroyed in a month. 112 out of 152 military aircraft were destroyed, 75 out of 149 helicopters, 35 out of 36 Bayraktar TB2 drones were destroyed. Out of 180 S-300 and Buk M1 – 148, out of 300 radars for various purposes – 117.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will promptly respond to any attempts to close the airspace of Ukraine for the Russian Aerospace Forces.

10. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, at least 10 Ukrainian sea mines are now drifting uncontrollably in the Black Sea, posing a threat to navigation.

11. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation handed over captured weapons to the DPR and LPR. Among other things, 113 tanks and 138 ATGM “Javelin” were transferred.

More than 23,000 applications have been received from citizens of 37 states wishing to fight for the DPR and LPR. There are also a lot of such applications from Russian citizens.

12. Official losses since the beginning of ITS. Killed – 1351. Wounded – 3825.

New developments on the petrodollar front:

https://21stcenturywire.com/2022/03/23/rouble-surges-after-putin-ditches-dollars-and-euros-for-russian-oil-and-gas/#disqus_thread

N.B. The article isn’t flawless – see the Comments for some helpful additions.

First UK media mention I’ve seen of rationing:

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/uk-news/mcdonalds-ration-tomatoes-big-tasty-23486263

Rationing would tick an awful lot of their boxes (war mentality, technocratic allocation of resources, accustomisation to scarcity etc). Of course the actual example is fairly trivial – and how unsurprising that it’s probably the only vaguely healthy part of a Big Mac that they’re short of! This is how once “unthinkable” ideas get floated…

And people nostalgic for ‘the good ol’ days’ would rather like the idea of rationing anyway – quite oblivious of the fact that none of our politicians would be rationed…

Also Remembrance Sunday is still a tear-jerker among the great-grandkids of people who died not having the faintest idea of what they were fighting for.

The surreal world, in which the media are slowly forcing us to live, is the equivalent of eating a Magritte or Dali painting under the desperate illusion that we are somehow nourishing ourselves…

I have made mistakes in my longish life – some of them quite big ones – but I have never tried to fool people into the cultural equivalent of eating bizarre, or funny oil paintings.
In any case, the commonest victim of my mistakes has usually been myself.

But this is not making mistakes.
This is bringing about hell on earth – on purpose – for short-term, ephemeral profit.

Before EU$A’s Silly Sanctions Season, 1 Euro got you nearly 90 ruble on Feb20.

At peak of Silly Sanction Season, the ruble fell down 60 to 150, March 10.

Ten days later the Ruble had already risen 40 to 110, March 20.

A few days after the Russian Dictator decreed that unfriendly countries must pay for Russian gas in Russian currency, the Ruble has not risen; it is still stuck at 110 on March 26, down 20 from its pre-Sanctions level 90. So it looks like EU Ursula is right: “The days of Russian blackmail are over”. EU will buy more expensive U$ gas in U$ dollars, freeze or come to a halt rather than submit to Russian blackmail.

Any guesses for the Ruble rate on April Fools Day?

Covid has cleared the board. Pre-Covid, I would have made an attempt to follow connections through various organisations to find out which were corrupt. Covid has revealed the brutal truth: every official organisation is corrupt. Every pathway, channel, magazine, party etc. is corrupt. And I feel David Icke’s label for them all is apt: The Cult. The speed with which they all coalesced into one massive juggernaut is the biggest slap in the face I’ve had. It almost knocked my head off.

And there’s the showbiz contingent:

https://web.archive.org/web/20220325162420/https://amp.theguardian.com/music/2022/mar/25/it-feels-like-live-aid-all-star-concert-for-ukraine-joins-war-relief-effort

The celebrity clergy, now apparently superglued to the non-stop Ukraine bandwagon, are giving us a “Live Aid” which “was mobilised in just two weeks after (producer Guy) Freeman was horrified by the “relentless” news and wanted to help.”

Isn’t it always curious how they give a little nod to what is really going on? Freeman was horrified by the “relentless” news. I reckon the scare quotes are meant here for emphasis. But they would seem to indicate another meaning whether intended or not. They seem to be asking: What is it that is truly relentless here? The Evil Russian attack … or “the news” of “The Evil Russian attack”?

Anyway our Guy springs into action and note this:

“The Concert for Ukraine organisers and performers alike are giving their services for free, as is a vast infrastructure network including staging and sound crew.”

Vast infrastructure network indeed!

And who would argue with this?:

““The number of companies helping is amazing,” said Freeman. “I’ve never known anything like it….””

Oh I don’t think anyone has ever know anything like it Guy!

“Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s head of entertainment, said that the broadcaster instantly said yes because “it was just the right thing to do….””

Oh I don’t think Katie had much choice really!

And if you can stomach it, there follows a roll call of Really Big Names ever so eager to get in on the act. They also drag along a few charities:

“On 3 April, the London Philharmonic Orchestra will perform at Glyndebourne with various opera singers to benefit the Disasters Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, which funds charities including British Red Cross, Oxfam and Save the Children.”

What was it Orwell once said? “This place stinks of charity”?

Then a bit about the millions upon millions of displaced refugees.

But one word you won’t hear from this lot is “Azov”: 

https://twitter.com/consent_factory/status/1507132202848509960

“Azov is much more than a militia. It has its own political party; publishing houses; summer camps for children; a vigilante force which patrols the streets of cities alongside the police [and] a military wing with a vast arsenal of weapons …”

Now I wonder who’s funding that lot?

I’m infinitely grateful I’m not young now and not in thrall to any infatuation to the “celebs” of today. Though granted it’s bad enough when Neil and Joni enlist for the vax bandwagon. Also granted that with Ukraine there have been some deeply embarrassing jerk-off dupes. Yes thank you Pink fucking Floyd. And look at those Manic Street Preachers. If you tolerate this, your children will be vaxxed. And I know I jumped from Ukraine to covid there. But I am starting to see them both as “Reset Operations”.

Usual WEF bs but two points of interest:
1) Ukraine supplies the UN’s WFP with 50% of its grain. BTW the timing of the invasion/action in early spring doesn’t make much sense if energy was the top priority – but it does if food was the main issue because it’s sowing time of year.
2) Well look who’s being interviewed by the WEF at the bottom of the page – it’s that lovely David Miliband.

This suggests the output of a piece of software. You hardly need real people to write this. In fact real people might be a problem. Even the most venal hack might by this time be thinking, “Oh for fuck’s sake! Even I can’t stand this BORING EMBARRASING BRAIN DEAD SHIT NOW!”

So – software then. Like Chinese water torture, it’s psychological conditioning to be viewed as if it was a purely physical matter of cause and effect.

I think Davies and OffG and Corbett are picking up something most other alternative media are missing as of now. The likes of Vanessa Beeley, 21 Century Wire, the Duran, GrayZone are living in the past and fighting old battles with the doomed empire. They do not see the sun is sinking on Uncle Sam and the new danger is looming and it has the smiling face of globalism.
