WATCH: “World Govt Summit” + “Bucha massacre”

In the above edition of New World Next Week, James Corbett and James Evan Pilato discuss, amongst other things, some interesting instances of “saying the quiet part out loud” at the “World Government Summit”.

Yes, you read that right – the World Government Summit is a thing. And it features exactly the ‘sordid cast of characters’ you might expect.

James and James also discuss the alleged massacre of civilians by – well, someone – in the small town of Bucha outside Kiev. And they provide some increasingly-rare level-headedness about this tortured topic.

Since the Russian “special operation” in Ukraine people have rushed to take a side, heedless of the broader agenda at play.

EP and C remind us:

§ We are not there on the ground, and have no idea what happened (or didn’t happen).

§ Both sides engage in spin and propaganda, that is the nature of war.

§ Both sides have been accused of using “fake” footage, with the Western press endorsing what have turned out to be definite proven fakes dozens of times at this point.

In addition the Russian MoD has officially accused Ukraine of being intent on “staging” incidents using bodies from morgues or alleged victims of other alleged incidents (our emphasis)…

The Security Service of Ukraine plans to bring the bodies of local residents killed by Ukrainian artillery shelling from the morgue of the town hospital on Polevaya Street to the basement of a building on the eastern outskirts of Irpen.

Then a staged action with shooting and “destruction” of an alleged “Russian reconnaissance group” that arrived in Irpen “to kill witnesses of Russian war crimes” will be staged by the Security Service of Ukraine in Puscha-Voditskii forest area.

At the same time, the bodies of captured Russian servicemen previously killed by nationalists under torture will be presented as “undeniable evidence” in the forest.

So the fog is dense on this one, and indeed lies thick over the entirety of Ukraine right now.

If you are not actually out there, or even if you are, the chance that you have any kind of grasp of the full story is vanishingly small.

This is one reason we are not following the example of some other indy media and offering daily “sitreps” synthesized from nothing more than Russian MoD briefings, unverified videos and “chatter” in the ether.

We are in no position to offer verification of anything being reported. None of us are, even those freely sharing this stuff.

Moreover we are aware this “operation” and concomitant “sanctions” promotes the same agenda that the utterly phony “pandemic” is intended to. So regarding it in pre-2020 terms as a simple proxy NATO war is unwarranted and unwise.

This is the New Normal after all, and what we are witnessing may well be the first “new normal war”, whatever that may turn out to mean.

Until all becomes clearer we will not be pushing anyone’s propaganda or promoting simplistic binary thinking when this seems to be one very clear result/objective of the “special operation” itself.

There is a photo journalist called Patrick Lancaster travelling with the DPR and Russian armies who has interviewed dozens of citizens in the Donbass and Mariupol. His reports are on YouTube. You can hear the truth directly from these people who are living in this nightmare. They unanimously tell how the Ukrainian/Nazi troops are using them as human shields, deploying heavy artillery between apartment blocks and at schools, hospitals, theatres and firing on Russin troops and civilians from these buildings. This is a war crime. If the Russian side returns fire and civilians are killed they are used as anti Russian propaganda. The Ukrainian side also shell on civilian areas as they retreat.
This has been going on for 8 years.

I haven’t been tracking it enough to remember where it was coming from, but there was a narrative floating about that the entire war some wag-the-dog creation. Although there has clearly been a lot of fakery in news and social media reports, the notion that everything is fake is highly dubious given the well-documented history of the region. With regard to Bucha, I haven’t looked at it probably, but I assume it’s another “white helmets” production; which may or may not involve real bodies.

Gonzalo Lira pointed out that whilst there were clearly dead bodies to be seen in Bucha (particularly the ones whose faces were shown), his opinion (with which I agree) was that mannequins had been used in some of the street scenes to supplement the image of mass murder. That opinion, and other views he held openly, now appear to have got him tortured and murdered by the Kraken brigade of the Azovs. They were led to him by a chilling, psychopathic individual going by the name of Sarah Ashton-Cirillo (correspondent for The Daily Beast) who is embedded with the Nazis in Kharkov and who has declared that the next target for elimination is Patrick Lancaster. She even changed her Twitter Bio yesterday to read “Trans killer of journalists”.

Apr 20, 2022 8:06 PM

I don’t know what the war is really, but the videos that Patrick Lancaster is selling on YouTube do not represent any real battle situation.

Some points

  1. The guy wearing the Russian army flash and claiming to be Russian army is wrong side of fifty and overweight. No way he’s in the professional army or even territorial. Would be surprised if even the Donbas militia would take him for active combat. He’d be a liability.
  2. No way he or any of the guys in this or a previous video from yesterday have been military trained to use those firearms. They are amateurs. They don’t have any trigger discipline, they don’t take up firing positions.
  3. Who are they firing at? That’s not a rocket launcher it’s a relatively close combat weapon. If you can’t seen anyone you are probably not going to hit them. He’s literally just spraying the air.
  4. What happens in the end? There were two snipers but they’re gone now? All that heavy duty ordnance for two snipers and a machine gunner? And then they don’t move forward into position they pull back? it looked very lame at that point, like their little performance was over so they clear off back home.

I don’t think he’s filming real combat. I think they have sent some hardware out behind those flats to make a noise and then invited him to film them shooting at nothing just to get footage. I don’t know if he’s in on it or being taken for a ride. He looks quite clueless but he really hams it up.

I am interested to know how close they really are to the Avostal plant. He claims very close, but frankly it looks like the same housing estate he films most of his videos in. And I just can’t see the CO letting that bunch of clowns anywhere near the front line. They would just get in the way or get themselves killed

So I am calling fake on this and Lancaster’s previous videos claiming to show combat. Which is not the same as calling fake on the war though I know some do.

I wouldn’t call it fake. Just not that significant.

They’re safely outside the ‘Azovstal’ complex and at a relatively safe distance from the ‘cleanup’ action. So they wouldn’t need to be superfit. The occasional bit of covering fire maybe to deter counteraction, whilst younger, fitter troops do the actual ‘cleanup’ work in the distance.

The main military ‘storm’ would have happened previously. Followed by a ‘cleanup’ stage of removing stragglers (the odd sniper etc). A stage that generally seems to consist of sending in tanks and blasting enemy buildings until they’re ‘safe’ (likely off camera). You wouldn’t expose infantry to potential sniper fire. Though a Russian reporter recently described the ‘cleanup’ stage as still far more dangerous than the initial ‘storm’.

Other footage yesterday (Wednesday) also indicated a high level of noise from the Steel plant area (which is apparently a massive area -at least 11km square). So I would think that that noise is likely genuine – from intense fighting still going on in the Industrial region

It’s not a real combat situation. They would not let a guy of that age and that unfit anywhere near the frontline. Plus he’s clearly had no weapons training which makes him a liability and serious danger to other men in his unit. That video is a fictional drama as far as I am concerned.

What you describe is not how infantry or artillery work together. Why would you send in that amount of hardware, waste so much ordnance just to take out two snipers and a machine gun nest inside an empty building? You’d send in maybe a single armored vehicle and a few men for covering fire and send a small group up inside the building asap to take them out. You would obviously cease firing in the building once your men were inside.

Shelling a building that size with small caliber ordnance is a terrible way to deal with snipers. They could easily get away while you’re blasting the building, scatter and hole up elsewhere.

What we are seeing in the video is simply not coherent military procedure or strategy as taught to combat troops everywhere. Sorry, can’t agree.

We are already in World War III. We’re already in conflict that extends so far beyond Ukraine, actually. Even within the context of Western Europe. But we’ve clearly been pretty much at war in space; below the surface of the oceans; submarine warfare between superpowers. . . . This has been happening for at least four years and it’s spilled over into the public view on the ground. But we don’t frame it that way.

From a speech by Reverend Nasr’Allah of Lebanon about global politics, with particular reference to Ukraine:

Trusting the United States is stupid and foolish. A few months ago we saw with our own eyes how the United States in Afghanistan abandoned and forsook the country. The images of the planes and the airport are still fresh in everyone’s mind.

Let’s not forget the Afghan President who was 100% subservient to the US, to the point that if they told him not to negotiate he didn’t do it –while the United States themselves negotiated –, if they asked him not to go somewhere, he didn’t go there, if they wanted him to go to such and such a country, he went there, and so on. He was 100%… So the former Afghan President says: “My mistake was to trust the United States and its international allies.” He claims that he gave them his opinion but they did not take him into account, the result is the humiliating NATZO debacle that we saw in Afghanistan.
Today, in Ukraine, the whole world knows that the United States and Great Britain in particular (are the main culprits of the crisis). The rest of the European countries are really poor wretches. The United States, and with them Great Britain, which has left the European Union, have aggravated the situation in Ukraine and pushed it into the lion’s den. But of course, they acted according to precise calculations. For Biden has announced in his strategy that his priority is the fight against Russia and China. Biden is certainly not going to wage a world war against them, because the U$A is not capable of a war against an equal power, and so he has ordered his puppet President of Ukraine throw the Ukrainians against Russia. Biden will abandon Ukraine the way he abandoned Afghanistan.

That is the lesson which you should learn, O my Lebanese: To trust the U$A is foolish.

After direct or indirect imperial involvement, reconstruction is a deliberate goal. Other post-war goals:
-“Restitution” from the designated enemy
-Payment for rescue and for continued “protection” from the ally
-Natural resources under kleptocratic trade
-Armaments
-Usurious loans
-Workers: skilled, unskilled or enslaved workers. 

During the war, the covert booty includes
-Bullion, valuables in safe-deposit boxes, and cash reserves
-Aid meant for victims
-Aid for military training or “development”.
-Valuables and other assets seized from businesses, homes, people, corpses, etc.
-Machinery and related supplies 
-Cultural artefacts
-Natural resources, e.g. grain or minerals
-Research, designs, patents, etc. 
-Human body parts*
-Narcotics.

*After their wounded colleagues disappeared at the Donbas front, some Ukranian soldiers deserted when Germany announced donation of a field hospital and crematorium. White Helmets from Syria were also planning to go there after their “humanitarian” work in Syria.

WESTERN TRICK TO CAMOUFLAGE INCOMING WEAPONS DOESN’T WORK
In the Russian non-contact strategy, preference is given to missile and air strikes to destroy equipment and weapons supplied from NATO member countries, said military expert Yuri Knutov.
The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that a Ukrainian military transport aircraft with a large batch of foreign weapons was destroyed. But NATO countries are only increasing deliveries, and now we are talking about heavy equipment, such as T-72 tanks, BMP-1, S-300 complexes.

Now the West has decided to use a trick: 100 km from the border of Ukraine, the equipment is reloaded onto special tractors, which are covered with a camouflage frame. Western “partners” hope that such a car carrier will resemble a civilian car.

Only about 1200 surrendered. But they were at a nearby factory complex (not Avostal). Avostal has a vast network of tunnels below the ground. One of the chambers is thought to have been used by the Azov battalion to torture unsympathetic residents of Mariupol since 2014.

Apparently the Nazis have taken civilian hostages in with them as human shields. There are likely to be civilian remains from the tortured victims. This is the last stronghold and the Russians believe when Avostal reveals its secrets that Kiev and the west have much to fear.

I have read all kinds of stories, that the Russian armed forces are going in with flamethrowers, that they are flooding the air-conditioning systems, that they are using bunker-bombs, that they are waiting and starving the inmates to force them out.

I don’t agree. Yes, I am not there on the ground. But I like to think that in Nazi Germany I would have been one of those who spoke out about the atrocities. It is one of the reasons I am speaking out about the Ukrainian Banderist atrocities. People like the two Jamess, at least on this occasion, are irresponsible and letting the culpable walk free.

There is already sufficient evidence to show what the Nazis have done and there is no excuse for it. Not attributing blame allows the perpetrators to continue unpunished. Sorry, this time they are wrong. Here’s why.

I agree, John. It’s pretty obvious who’s lying. Within the context of this war, Russia is clearly the good guy. However, in the larger context of the war against humanity being waged by the billionaire gangsters I think Putin is one of them. The evidence:
–The West is vulnerable to the dissemination of information about the Great Reset / NWO.
Putin has a built-in bandstand from which to warn everyone, but he is silent.
–Putin is FOR all the elements of the NWO: the covid exaggeration, APG (Anthropogenic global
warming) hoax, etc.
–Putin appears to have cooperated in the actions of the Russian Central Bank which have
prevented rapid development of the Russian economy. Nor did he complain when the RCB
stopped buying Russian-mined gold, allowing it to be bought by Britain to shore up the pound.
–Nor is there any doubt whatever that both the Russian entry into the Syrian war and the Russian
escalation from an air war to boots-on-the ground was in full cooperation with the West. I’ve enumerated the evidence for this last elsewhere on this site & won’t repeat it here.

I’ve wondered myself why Putin has stayed silent through the WEF’s explicitly-stated domination of the world (which includes Russia) and why he went along with the Covid farce. I don’t have the answer – unless he’s playing a waiting game – buying time. Sputnik V was out before any of the death-shots. It does not appear to be as deadly as the others.

Also his association with Klaus Schwab is disturbing. But then all leaders seem to have no compunction about giving one another a hug (for example, Blair’s hugging of Gaddafi before the west turned Libya into a failed state).

I’m not making excuses. Only time will tell. I notice these world leaders never put themselves physically at the front in times of war.

Sadly the US has bought control of all the major international bodies – UN, WHO, even the ICC (to which it is not even a signatory). Hopefully it will not always be that way. We must keep fighting the evil – fighting for justice – awakening the dozy masses.

Remember, this is not a real war; only a Special Operation to de-Nazify (ie, de-NATZOfy) Ukraine. It began 8 years after the Obomba/Biden/Nudelman Noodles coup which installed an Anglo Zionazi Oligarch regime which began genocidal activities against Russian-speaking Ukrainians, repeatedly refused to make peace (Minsk 1, Minks 2) and invited NATZO to install nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

Real war might begin when NATZO refuses to remove its nuclear weapons from Eastern Europe.

Russia’s stated objective: No NATZO Nukes East of Berlin!

True, it cannot be denied, and Poles are by and large acutely aware of these heinous crimes. Indeed, I’ve even come across a debate of sorts as to whether the Polish government should take western Ukraine politicians to task over the erecting of Bandera statues. Indeed, I agree that the Polish government should be more proactive in this matter – especially now.

But does that mean Poland shouldn’t fully support Ukraine in its hour of need? Certainly not!

If you take a more thorough look at that webpage, you’ll find numerous articles on could be broadly termed “Russky mir”, The crimes against humanity of that particular empire are so vast it’s even hard to fully comprehend. For instance, the 1938 NKVD Polish Operation is something even many Poles are unaware off. And have the Russians ever apologised?

In the 1990s, Russians were asked to name the greatest Russian leader. The results of this opinion poll even shocked its organisers. It turns out that the leader Russians today most admire is Joseph Stalin. For PR purposes, the organisers changed the result to Alexander Nevsky – the one who defeated Livonian knights in the West, but then collaborated closely with the Mongol Horde in the East. If you look at all their leaders, they’re just variations on an imperialistic and autocratic theme. Why should Ukrainians be subjected to such rulers?

The pandemic was NOT real.

Is the war real? Good question. Is it completely fabricated? Is it grossly overblown? Is it happening more or less as reported, minus the propaganda regarding who blew up more hospitals?

There are tons of Ukie refugees here. Most of them don’t seem particularly distressed. They’re all over the malls and shops. If I could describe them using one word, I’d say “entitled”. Entitled to get this, that, the other thing. There is this feeling that the West is under an obligation to take care of them. Anyway, people say that in the majority of the Ukie territory, nothing out of the ordinary is happening. Apart from the ubiquitous corruption and misery, I guess.

Given how the media are manipulating people, nothing can be taken for granted, nothing can be trusted.

So, just like there are sick people and hospitals are filled up to the brim all the time, there has been fighting going on in Ukraine for a decade. Is it any different now? Maybe. The pic the media are painting is probably very different from reality.

Given events in recent years and greater revelations of the path we very much appear to be on*, I could see this as an arranged conflict to further that agenda; with much of it being stage managed (this doesn’t mean lives are not lost of course). As wardropper says, it could be, it could not be, and we could never know. Nothing wrong speculating and questioning though, as long as we don’t just accept one narrative over another without irrefutable proof; which I would argue is almost impossible for most of us.

My completely unsolicited advice would be to read as many varied views of the same event as you can and believe none of them. Knowledge maketh a wise man (or woman). What more can one do, than know all that you reasonably can about a subject or event? Then to share it all and spread the wisdom!

How many people need to be killed for it to be called a massacre? Five? Ten? Well, if the Ukrainians are now claiming it was more like 400 or even more, they must surely be overdoing it!

And all those eyewitnesses, the weeping women, the stunned men? Well, they all must be “passive Nazis” and bloody good actors. Besides, who’d ever heard of Russian troops murdering, pillaging and raping! Never heard of such things happening ever before, have you? Besides, the Russians have denied it.

The rage of the Ukrainians against the Muscovites is simply because they watched too much globalist mainstream television (on sets now nicked by the Russian visitors). They’re brainwashed, unlike James Evan Pilato.

Yep, and when you hear of a war on the other side of the world, you immediately know it’s not what it seems. You know it a geopolitical war (though all wars are by definition geopolitical, especially if they involve tanks, warplanes, troops, missiles and a Slava-class cruiser), nah, it’s a “monetary event”.  Well, yes, money is also involved – wars are unimaginably expensive. But is that the most important thing?

At the start of this most recent Russian invasion, the President of Ukraine armed the entire nation with Kalashnikovs – how does that fit in with the whole NWO  scheme of things? Nah, it’s all a bit too esoteric or arcane for me. I prefer to listen to George Friedman, you know, the other one from the nudge, nudge, wink, wink World Government Summit. At least his geopolitical predictions follow a certain lucid logic. At least he’s consistent and he can see the wood through the trees. That’s why I don’t really care what his political views are, or where his children are employed – it’s irrelevant. I’ve been following his arguments for over two decades and I can’t say he’s wrong.

Having some Slavic ancestors, having a Slavic language as my mother tongue, and having been forced to study Russian throughout my childhood, I can’t tell the difference between Russian and Ukrainian. The only difference between the two I can see – and this is my personal observation and I don’t want to sound crass – where I live (there are a fair number of both Russkies and Ukies) is that Russians are generally well educated, sophisticated, cultured, while Ukrainians are the opposite. There are some notable exceptions to this rule, but I have yet to see a Russian laborer digging a ditch, while a huge number of construction workers are Ukrainians.

This is the most phantasmagorical war imaginable. Why the fuck are these peoples, which are essentially of the same ethnic makeup, fighting one another? It makes absolutely zero sense. It’s not a war, provided that there is anything going on at all – you can’t believe the media anything these days, viz the COVID bullshit, it’s a civil war. A civil war between people brainwashed to kiss Brussels/Washington’s ass and people brainwashed to kiss Moscow’s ass.

I’m staying out of this, fuck them all. They’ll have to sort this out.

BTW, there was this guy Gonzalo Lira who was broadcasting from Kharkov, anti-Ukrainian stuff. He was on Telegram, on YouTube. It seems that he’s disappeared. Anybody heard anything?

Re Gonzalo Lira (US/Chilean writer who lives in Kharkov with his Ukrainian wife and children), it’s not looking good. He was due to participate in a podcast discussion on George Galloway’s channel on 19 April but didn’t make an appearance or send his apologies. Allegedly, he hasn’t been seen by family or friends since 18 April but an acquaintance reported seeing him being detained by militia when he went out to get food provisions. Azov have since posted a cryptic ‘tweet’ mocking his disappearance with the overall implication that they know what has happened to him. Hasn’t been any social media update so far today.

Maybe they think he has made up the story himself for his own propaganda purposes or for some narcissistic reasons – in that case it would have been useful for them to give me an idea why they think that. All I was doing was reporting the currently available information on his fate.

I have seen the Azov tweets and accompanying photos of them in ‘celebratory’ mode and they do convey an arrogant tone of “we know more than we’re letting on”.

Yes I have seen those too and they don’t look good. RT reporting on his disappearing this evening also which is another worrying step.

Regardless of whether he’s ‘anyone’s cup of tea’ he is not a soldier and has not been involved in any fighting. He has been providing on the ground intel on what is happening at street level no different to what Lex Hathor did a few weeks back – exposing some of the bs narrative that passes for news.

That of course makes him dangerous to the PTSB but in no way excuses them of their responsibilities. We have been sold a great lie of Ukrainian democracy and Vlad bad but the Zelensky regime killing ‘reporters / journalists’ is a huge dent to that lie.

Sadly Gonzalo made have inadvertently played a role in exposing that lie – something we must hope and pray hasn’t happened.

I personally favour the idea Gonzo is an operative who is either playing games or been assigned to create this psyop inside a psyop or just maybe been offed.

Apart from the money, some of their motivation probably comes from the thought that their acting talents will be noticed by a scout from Hollywood, and they will get an Oscar one day…
It seems heartless to say so in the current context, but, honestly, bad acting – and mediocre acting too – are recognizable things.
After all, we have decades of superficial TV and movie experience behind us – real experience – of letting brain-dead scripts and barely trained actors assault our poor senses 24/7…

How could we not recognize them?

So I would ask why are these freedom fighters & opposition speakers, laundering every news item through the prim of a ‘globalist international conspiracy’?

One result of this fantasy is to protect the real political actors who have power, are who are pulling the strings, people like Lindsey Gresham and the now gone ‘war hero’ John McCain.

Yes, there is indeed a globalist international conspiracy. This goes way, way back. i.e.:

We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.
Paul Warburg, the International Banker testifying to the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 1950.

We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991

This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller, Club of Rome, Sept. 23, 1994

For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
from David Rockefeller’s autobiography ‘Memoirs’

America is going down the tubes, their woke military can barely fight anymore, they sink their own ships. Lindsay Graham (chicken hawk) & John McCain (war traitor/coward) are classic examples of obedient puppies, likely they were blackmailed to serve the Bankster’s world hegemony goal. And Klaus Schwab is just another obedient puppy, like Gates, Soros, Bloomberg and Zuckerberg. They are already declaring that the US will no longer be the major World power and NATO/UN will be replacing the US military as the global police force. Note UN police already used in Canada to beat down the peaceful Trucker protest.

Undoubtedly their plan is no passport, just the one Digital I.D. covers passports, vaccine status, medical info, CBDC entitlement, criminal record, travel restrictions, political views etc. The Aristocracy will likely have a Digital I.D. that says “Blank Check”.

Lindsey Gresham? Sorry, you mean Lindsey Graham. And sorry again, but if you really think either Lindsey or John are the true rulers over this now global shit show, I have a bridge to sell you, cheap and only slightly damaged….

While it is comforting to think defeat of the US Empire would solve all of our problems, keep on reading at sites like this and others and get educated. It most certainly is a global operation, although the US may nominally lead it, the true rulers do not give one crap about nation states, at all. One World Government – why would you think that’s only a US proposition? Just because GHW Bush may have been the first to utter that out loud, does in no way mean he or any of the rest of the goons in Washington truly created that movement.

As for Klaus, he may indeed be powerless in the real sense, but he’s the current figure head for the global control grid the owners are putting in place. Hardly worthless to them FOR NOW, but that could indeed change. While it is counter-productive to think he really runs the whole show, right now we don’t even really know the names of those who truly are running things. But they ain’t Lindsey Gresham or John McCain….

The “both sides” argument here flies in the face of the historical realities. This is a false equivalence.

To say that the “fog is dense on this one” is not the case. But let’s say it is- how do you clear that fog? Historical analysis, looking at patterns, looking at who is involved, looking for motives and asking who benefits. Once that is done here it is not so difficult to clear the fog and understand what is happening and why it is happening.

The “Bucha incident” was staged and not very well. This came at a time during peace talks and effectively shut down those negotiations- that is not by accident. An analysis of the chronology of Bucha (let alone a forensic analysis which, curiously, is being blocked by The West) illustrates that the narrative coming from the US/NATO propagandists is patently absurd.

Put simply it was a poorly done version of “babies thrown from incubators”, “Saddam gassed his own people”, etc. The actors on the UkroNazi side of things are amateurs in this respect which is why US/NATO are trying to block any investigation into the matter.

The US/NATO alliance want another Yeltsin stooge at the helm in Russia in order to control the direction of Russian resources (particularly gas/energy), thwart trade towards Russian energy forcing European markets to remain in the orbit of the (more expensive) US energy markets and to put a wrench in the gears of the Russia/China/Syria/Iran/Brazil/India et al alliance in order to maintain dollar hegemony and further delay the inevitable collapse of the US Empire.  

The current Ukranian regime is nothing other than corrupt puppets installed by the US/NATO. Under this regime Ukraine has become (one of) the world’s hotspot for narco-trafficking, child trafficking, organ trafficking, money laundering and on and on.

Same pattern as in the former Yugoslavia. US/NATO Balkanized the region for the express purpose of destroying people’s movements and the right of countries to determine their own fate in order to force markets into the sphere of the US (Western) influence and control.

Same thing the US did in Haiti, Guatemala, former Congo, Argentina, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and on and on. These are historical facts. 

The notion of some sort of moral equivalence here Russia ignores historical and material facts. Russia is currently defending themselves against incursions on agreed upon boundaries and treaties. 

The US and its allies have been materially supporting Nazis for decades and aggressively and unremittingly attempting to destabilize Russia for decades- this isn’t news. 

Last I checked Russia was encircled by US/NATO military hardware.

The existence and atrocities of the Nazis in Ukraine, their ties to the US since WWII, which we have seen all too much of in the past eight years, cannot possibly be ignored in discussing the current situation. While we may not love the government of Russia any more than that of the USA, under current circumstances it is clear who is doing what. To take an Olympian stance and pronounce a pox upon both their houses is a denial of material reality.

The ‘multi-polar’ world some folks envision post-US hegemony will be no Paradise and could indeed be hair-raising but is certainly a step in the right direction. US hegemony is most certainly leading humanity to doom, time for something different, with the opportunity for something very different.

To those excellent points I would add, for the new World Government (Western Bankster owned Oligarchy), the two thorns in their side for total World hegemony are Russia & China. China is too powerful, too isolated politically & socially, and too economically important to attack directly, the West would probably lose. So the weak link is Russia whose government & industry are already highly infiltrated by Western Bankster toadies (including their Central Bank – part of a Yeltsin giveaway). I suspect Putin was suckered into invading Ukraine by the myriad of Bankster minions in the Russian government, who told him it would be a two day event. The plan is to subjugate Russia, bring it into the “International Rules Based World Order” kicking & screaming. Then China will be isolated, lacking energy & other resources, it will then be an easy target to conquer.

If you want a preview of the “multipolar world” we are heading toward just read 1984, or better still take a trip to Shanghai.

Globalism is intended to be multipolar. There will be Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia. All ruled by the unelected head of the WHO, the World Bank and the IMF.

The wars will be forever wars somewhere far away, justifying perpetual shortages, and they will be replete with even more fakery than we see now.

Why/how would a multi polar world be different for the average person? It certainly wasn’t the case in the 20th century.
I think most people would cede that Russia has a far superior case for their military actions than the US has had for any of its wars – you could argue that Ukraine actually declared war by shelling the Donbass.
That being said the enemy your enemy isn’t necessarily your friend. Rooting for Putin is like rooting for George W Bush. We know that the Russian people are treated with the same contempt by their government that western people are. I’m skeptical that a Ukraine back in Russias orbit will be any more free than it has been. As usual it’s the people who get crushed to death between superpowers.

Well, in my book, the “New Normal” just isn’t going to happen.
And my book is a real book.

But the main point of the article – that none of us knows what is really happening in Ukraine – is very important and very true.

As is often said about liars, they have to have astonishingly good memories in order to appear credible in the longer term, and of course many of them do not have such good memories.
I could imagine that all kinds of mistakes are being constantly made by the current manipulators of our public consciousness. For example, staging dead bodies and setting them up for photo-shoots.

Given that everybody has a smart phone these days, there must be countless opportunities for people to record the manipulators in the act.
After that, all that is required is to tell the truth – where this happened (country, district, street and number), then get the video out there for all to see.
The media will naturally do all they can to suffocate any such voices, but the efforts of Corbett and his like should ensure that enough viably conscious people get to see it.

I have seen various comments to the effect that Corbett is a sophisticated gatekeeper, but if he is, he is terrible at it.
He raises issues which we all want to raise and asks questions which any intelligent person would want to ask. As a result, many of us know much more than we would otherwise know – including how to spot fake news – and our own experience tells us that what he says rings true.

“Ringing True” is an important part of human instinct, by the way.

While I agree that Mr Corbett is most likely not a gatekeeper, I can’t help thinking he is – ironically – naive. Spoken words and images he takes down without a fight; written words, not so much.

Apparently he’s never met a document he doesn’t like, no matter how dicey it may seem. If one of the bad guys commits something to paper, it becomes almost a gospel.

The most obvious – egregious? – example of this was a New York State Health Directive which ordered hospitals to release COVID patients to Care Homes. The form and style were picture perfect; but just imagine how easily something like that could be faked – especially since these particular kinds of documents are not signed by anyone.

There should have been a disclaimer that while the document appeared authentic, there was the possibility of its being a fake.

Bucha is efficiently deconstructed by Scott Ritter & the other forum members.

I appreciate those who take the time to think something through and say what they consider important about it. That helps reduce the dependency on images and communiques that could easily be faked.

Your emotional investment is not a measure of truth. There is a blizzard of propaganda on both sides involving alleged eyewitness testimony. Do you believe all of it?

I am guessing the answer is ‘no’. I am guessing any ‘eye witnesses’ who talk about “Russian atrocities” are dismissed by you as propaganda. And you might well be right to do so. But only prejudice makes you unable to see the same applies to the stories from the ‘side’ you choose to support.

We know the story began in 2014. We have published a great deal about it. We at that time were clear about the facts, which were far less ambiguous.

This is not 2014 or a re-run of 2014. This is the New Normal and a strange new war that coincidentally is advancing the same agenda started by the covid hoax.

We therefore advise caution in jumping to conclusions about what is really going on.

IMO we are at a point in history of accelerated change due to the technological/digital revolution – with a little “r” however because it represents the next environment within which the same system of Capital flowing attempts to reproduce itself – and Schwab is merely reporting this reality at the moment of the sharpest contrast, in every aspect, with the past few years, and of course he and his ilk, technicians and empiricists at the pay of global Capital, were hired for the task of channeling and shaping that impersonal movement to best suit the needs of Capital and, once configured, marketing it to the four corners of the world.

The fantastic, unprecedented, absurd if not tragic violence of the State in almost all countries to get the populations injected is very difficult to explain however, unless we assume that it is a prerequisite to the pan digitalisation project, and in that case the injections must contain something that makes us “fit and usable” in that environment; a less farfetched explanation is that those in the know preparing the abolition of physical currency, want to make all the physical money possible (through the sales of the shots) before they abolish it to purchase physical assets (Gates and several politicians come to mind).

One thing is sure, the political, economic and social realities, the human itself, are being reshaped to suit a world in which all human transactions would be digital so that Capital remains the organising principle of human life.

Lets look at what has happened prior to the Russian Military intervention in the ukraine.

In 2014 in Odessa between 50-120 people, including women and a child, were murdered by Ukrainian right sector Nazis whilst taking part in a peaceful demonstration.

Next came The ” Anti -Terrorist Operation ” which from the start came down to war crimes because of the killing of civilians mainly by heavy weapons fire on residential areas after the initial phase of war. Torture executions and mass graves have been reported and are well documented.

So if past behaviour is an indication of present behaviour by the Ukrainian Right sector in the Donbas and for that matter throughout Ukraine, I would submit that many of the reports of the atrocities against the civilians committed by them has validity and indeed is credible.

Here is report in detail explaining what has happened previously.

I hope you take the time to look at it because it is worthy of indignation.

Assuming the future is automatically a replay of the past is a tad simplistic. So much is different. Most obviously Ukraine were aggressors in 2014. Now Russia has invaded for ‘reasons’ that seem flimsy and like an excuse.

It’s not hard to believe the reasons are concocted because the war had to happen to keep the Great Reset going when it started to flounder. Great distraction from the truckers (where did they go?), vax injuries, resistance marches. Good for Putin domestically. Good for the globalists to distract from the fact all global leaders turned out to be in cahoots. A war certainly lets people forget that

I agree that in general we all need to remain objective and cautious about uncritically taking sides. But when I see dozens and dozens of testimonies of civilians from different locations, given to different international reporters, all speaking extremely convincingly with one voice, I am not ashamed to say that I am past the point of not taking sides.

This single Twitter thread archives 19+ video testimonies from witnesses in and around Mariupol, and I have many more to hand. I personally am not of a mind to continue to sit on the fence simply because I personally cannot offer up proof that these people are not misguided, or brainwashed, or speaking with a gun pointing at their heads, or simply crisis actors told what to say. I shall leave others to make up their own minds, even if they want to continue to deny that Ukrainian/Azov atrocities are a possibility. But people need to see these testimonies because mainstream media definitely won’t be showing them.

How many alleged witnesses to Russian atrocities are there? If there were 19 would you feel forced to believe them?

It’s 19 testimonies included in one single Twitter thread – I have dozens more, with more being broadcast every day, and there is the hours of on the ground coverage by Patrick Lancaster in which he regularly walks the streets and talks to local residents on spec. Believing testimonies also depends on the context in which they are given and the credibility of the individuals. I haven’t seen 19 testimonies from civilians reporting Russian atrocities so that’s something of a hypothetical question. Maybe I would believe them, maybe I wouldn’t. I certainly can’t say.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe it. I think it’s horseshit. But I don’t believe the other side either. Point is, there they are, found in three mins on Youtube. There are probably loads of others. What’s the reason for choosing to believe one side and not the other? I say better to believe none. For all we know the same film units are producing all of it anyhow.

Another – two more ‘witnesses’ of ‘Russian atrocities’, we get weeping too. Is this less believable than the stuff you shared? I don’t think so.

Propaganda is propaganda.
As the article says, both sides are compelled by war to indulge in it. The only alternative would be to hand the war over to an impartial judge from Mars and let him declare the truth – and that isn’t going to happen.

The WW2 documentaries frequently shown on BBC many decades ago stated as fact all kinds of statistics and anecdotes which have subsequently been shown to be false or biased.
Nobody in 1945 believed that Winston Churchill was capable of an immoral or hypocritical act.

Now we know different.
Much as we would like the truth to speak for itself, it would appear that it cannot.

According to what you write, we cannot talk about any war because “all this is propaganda”, that is NATO and the USA, were ok in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria or Ukraine and even in Vietnam. And what’s wrong with just Iraqi, Afghan, Libyan, Syrian, Russian and Vietnamese propaganda. Fuck your head.

No.
All I am recommending is a little normal patience in the face of the likelihood that most of what we are seeing on TV news is almost impossible for the public to verify.
The same might have been true of WW2, except that a clear line had been drawn which Hitler crossed in 1939, and the Anglo-American ‘authorities’ in those days had not yet acquired a reputation for routine lying. Bloodthirsty ruthlessness, yes, but not outright lying.
I am not saying they didn’t lie, just that they had not yet acquired a reputation for doing so routinely.

The history of Ukraine is much more complex, most non-Ukrainians don’t know anything about it, and Lying is now the language spoken by all politicians.

A crucial concern here is that propaganda is now so ‘sophisticated’ (or perhaps it’s just the fact that we have been deadened by TV advertising to the point of accepting anything they tell us) that it takes real expertise to sort out the truth from the official narrative.
This is of course linked with the fact that decent journalism is practically dead.

Under those circumstances, snap judgements can’t do anything but put us all in even greater danger and make a bad situation into a worse one.

Come to think of it – getting back to your comment: What is any war except an exercise in propaganda to cover up the fact that “You have this or that asset, and we want to steal it from you.”?

I don’t have a TV. I know the topic and I know what I’m talking about. I know the history. My grandfather and the uncle were murdered by the Bandera followers in 1946.I know perfectly well who his followers today are.

You know, you are starting to sound every bit as hyperbolic as those who are just sure this is all Russia and especially Putin’s fault. Careful now, before you resort to waiving around that Ukraine flag and labeling anyone who points out just what has been going on in Ukraine for the last 8 years as a Putin apologist… Or a conspiracy theorist…. Or anti- vax….

Bringing up relatives who have died in war to show that you are truly in the know of all that is going on is an old tactic used by those who wish to shut down discussion and analysis with a blatantly emotional appeal. As someone who frequents this site, I’m sure you’ve seen that type of thing in real life and had it used on you when you attempt to discuss reality, it isn’t pretty no matter who is doing it.

That said, I’m sure you do know what you’re talking about. But you’re damaging your own credibility by resorting to telling others they’re just dumb or ignoring what you consider fact for merely questioning another commenter.

” Propaganda is Propaganda”. Hmm, the bombed out centre of many Midland cities was very real to the people suffering the bombs as was the mass graves for the dead.

The ruins of Berlin, Warsaw, Hamburg, Hiroshima were very real to those living there at the time as it was to the tens of millions of Soviet people who died.

To the survivors of the Vernichtungslager in the 3rd Reich this was no roll out of propaganda just as the grieving relatives of all those killed in the Donbass between 2014 and 2022.

The dead can not speak but the survivors bear witness for them. .

When I say, “propaganda is propaganda”, I am simply referring to the well-known fact that “truth is the first casualty of war”.

I don’t know how old you are, but WW2 happened just before I was born.
My parents were well-informed people and I learned from them all about the Midlands and a lot more which they experienced during that time.
My mother was a nurse in London during the war, and my father fought against Rommel’s forces in Africa.

Of course I do not dispute what actually happened, but this discussion isn’t about what happened. It’s about what is verifiable.
You are just repeating the 1945 BBC story – a historic narrative which we have all memorized, and of which you have no reason to assume I am ignorant, along with all the suffering which the war entailed.

But as I said, that’s not what is under discussion here.
This is about what to believe from the mainstream media and what not to believe.
My own wife believes most of what she sees on TV news, but most OffG readers are not that naive.
Uncritical trust of the media is very common, unless something happens which opens people’s eyes, and who could wish for a better crash course in having one’s eyes opened than the behaviour of the media during the last two years…?

I have witnessed a War first hand so I am very well of the consequences of war. Ie witnessing people being shot, bombs exploding and the aftermath for the survivors as well as the relatives.

“ This discussion is about what is verifiable “ Really, there many many many verified cases of murder, mayhem and torture by the Ukrainian right Nazi battalions during the 8 year long civil war which I have been following.

“ You are just repeating the 1945 BBC

Hmm, let’s see did the Nazis bomb the industrial cities in the Midlands, did they destroy Warsaw, did they destroy many cities in the former USSR and did tens of millions of their people die in that war.

In many homes of Russian people I visited whilst I lived there were pictures of relatives who had perished in the war. Moreover, whilst I lived in Germany I would listen to people who had lived through the bombing of Berlin, the battle of Berlin and those that fought against the Russians. There was no mention of a BBC narrative from these people.

“ This is about what to believe from the mainstream media and what not to believe. “ I suggest you look at the source I provided and the link I suggested since none of them are from the MSM.

Oh, I had my eyes open long long ago when I witnessed first hand a war and how the establishment and the MSM lied about it.

If , as some suggest, this is a fake or semi-fake war, the evidence will come out over time. Fake wars have the same problem as fake pandemics – a paucity of real dead. Time will make things clearer. Why do we need to leap to conclusions?

This is a well documented study relating to the verifiable murders committed by the Ukrainian right sector Nazis in the Donbas during the 8 year long civil war.

Nothing fake, semi- fake about the appalling atrocities committed by the Ukrainian Nazis who by the way have a long history of committing murder ie the Babi Yar massacre of Jews by not only the Germans but also Ukrainian Nazis many of whom were aided and abetted under operation Paper Clip to flee to the US, Canada and the U.K. who I personally met. Not pleasant people to say the least.

To reiterate past behaviour is good indicator of present behaviour. Therefore, I suggest you look at their past behaviour in the link below!

The Odessa massacre was the killing of between 50 and 120 people by fire, gun-shots and beatings in the afternoon and evening of 2 May 2014. Those who died were overwhelmingly people (including women, at least one child and the unborn child of a heavily pregnant woman strangled inside the building with electric flex) who had not taken part in any demonstration that day other than peacefully occupying three large tents in an encampment outside the Odessa Trade Union House throughout the preceding month. They fled and were herded into the Trade Union Building to escape a large angry mob of alleged football supporters who had earlier been attacked and goaded by a police-organised, briefed and tightly co-ordinated group of armed, red arm-banded men wearing St George insignia and chanting anti-Kiev junta slogans – in other words posing as pro-Russians intending to deliberately inflame a very large group of angry young men and herd them

towards the defenseless encampment in front of Trade Union House.

I don’t think anyone is disputing the Odessa Massacre happened. I think the point is that was eight years ago and pre-“New Normal”. Things can change and the lockstep displayed by Russia, China, and the West implies that things have changed drastically.

So, please don’t repeat post any more links and factual descriptions of Odessa. It’s understood. But we are trying to focus on 2022.
