It’s About Time

Isn’t it always?

With the start of World War III by the United States “declaring” war against Russia by its actions in Ukraine, we have entered a time when the end of time has become very possible.  I am speaking of nuclear annihilation.

I look down at my great-uncle’s gold Elgin pocket watch from the 19th century.  His name was John Patrick Whalen, an Irish immigrant to the US who fled England’s colonialist created famine in Ireland.

It tells me it is 5:15 PM on April 21, 2022, a date, coincidentally, with a history. 

No doubt John looked at his watch on this date in 1898 when the United States, after the USS Maine exploded from within in Havana harbor (a possible false flag attack), declared war on Spain in order to confiscate Spanish territories – Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines.  One colonial power replaced another and then proceeded over the long decades to wage war and slaughter these island peoples.

Imperialism never dies. It is timeless. One hundred and twenty-four years go by in a flash and it’s still the same old story.

In 1898 the yellow press screamed Spanish devils and today it screams Russian devils. Then and now the press called for war. If the human race is still here in another 124 years, time and the corporate media will no doubt have told the same story – war and propaganda’s lies to an insouciant and ignorant population too hypnotized by propaganda to oppose them.

This despite the apocalyptic sense that permeates our lives because of demonic technology and its use to transform humans into machines who can’t think clearly enough to perceive reality and realize the threat posed by that quintessential technological invention – nuclear weapons.

This is not uplifting, but it’s true. The nuclear weapons are primed and ready to fly.  The US insists on its first-strike right to launch them.  It openly declares it is seeking the overthrow of the Russian government.  Russia says it will use nuclear weapons only if its existence is threatened, which has become increasingly so because of US provocations over a long time period and its current expanding arming of Ukraine’s government and its neo-Nazi forces.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin and its Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov have just warned the US that such involvement has made nuclear war a “serious” and “real” risk, in Lavrov’s words “we must not underestimate it,” which is a mild form of diplomatic speech. Putin said that Russia has made all the preparations to respond if it senses a strategic threat to Russia and that response will be “instant, it will be quick.”

The US response is to shrug these statements off, just as it has done so for many years with Putin’s complaints about NATO forces moving up to its border.  Incredibly, Biden has said, “For God’s sake, this man (Putin) cannot remain in power.”

Despite endless media/intelligence anti-Russian propaganda – “a vast tapestry of lies,” to use Harold Pinter’s phrase – many fine writers have provided the historical details to confirm the truth that the US has purposely provoked the Russian war in Ukraine by its actions there and throughout Eastern Europe, which the mainstream media avoid completely. This US aggressive history against Russia is part of a much larger history of imperial hubris extending back to the 19th century.

I will therefore here follow Thoreau’s advice – “If you are acquainted with the principle, what do you care for a myriad instances and applications?” – since how many times do people need to hear lies such as “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction” in order to justify wars of aggression around the world.

The historical facts are very clear, but facts and history don’t seem to matter to many people. Pinter again, in his Nobel Address, bluntly told the truth about the US’s history of systematic and remorseless war crimes: “Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest.”  Which is still the case.

So time is my focus, for the last days have arrived unless there occurs a radical awakening to the obvious truth that the US government is pushing the world to the brink of disaster in full awareness of the consequences.  Its actions are insane, yet insanity has become the norm.  Insane leaders and a catatonic, hypnotized public lead to disaster.

I write these words with an old fountain pen, a high school graduation gift, to somehow comfort and remind myself that when we were this close once before in October 1962, Kennedy and Khrushchev miraculously found a solution to the Cuban Missile Crisis; and to find hope now, and that when my time is up and I join John Patrick in the other world, things will have changed for my children and grandchildren.

It is admittedly the hope of a desperado.

The last few years of the Covid-19 propaganda have served to further distort people’s sense of time, a distortion years in the making through the introduction of digital technology with its accompanying numerical time clicks and its severing of our natural sense of time that is tied to the rising and falling of the tides and the turning of the days and seasons, a feeling that is being lost. Such felt sense of time’s texture could be slow or faster, but it had limits.  We now live in a world without limits, which, as the ancient Greeks knew, demands payback.

For years before Covid-19, the sense of speed time was dominant, supported by the politically-introduced state of a constant emergency after September 11, 2001 with the urgency to hurry and keep up or one would fall behind.  Keep up with what was never explained.  Hurry why? 

Fast and faster was the rule with constant busyness that served the very useful social function of leaving no time for thinking, which was the point, but it made many feel as though they were engaged.  And constantly alert for “terrorists” to come knocking.  Thus the long wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, etc., all of which continue via various subterfuges.

Then, presto, all this frenzied time sense came to a stop with the 2020 lockdowns, when time got very slow, but not slow in the natural sense but an enforced slowness.  People were locked up.  Not only was it stupefying but stultifying and an existential drag.

This went on for two years with the prisoners allowed short respites only to be rounded back up and locked down again. Jabbed and jolted was the plan.  When will it ever end? was the common cry, as despair and depression spread and scrambled minds led to suicides and mindless screen entertainment.  This was planned education for a trans-human future in which the cell phone will be central to totalitarian control if people do not rebel.

Those behind the Covid-19 and war propaganda are fanatical technocrats who seek total control of the world’s population through digital technology.  Now they have temporarily let the people out of one type of cell and dramatically sped up time with frantic war propaganda against Russia.  The great English writer John Berger said it perfectly:

Every ruling minority needs to numb, and, if possible, to kill the time-sense of those whom it exploits. This is the authoritarian secret of all methods of imprisonment.

Everyone is now doing time while scrolling messages on the walls of their cell phones.  A twisted, convoluted, distorted, mechanical time in which it seems that there is no history and the future is an endless road of more of the same.

Some say we have all the time in the world.  I say no, that we have entered a new time, perhaps the end-time, when the world’s end is a very real possibility.  Hypnotized people can agree to anything, even mass-suicide, unless they snap out of it.  This can only happen with a return to slowness in the old sense, when people once felt time in their hearts’ rhythms attuned to the rising and falling of nature’s reality.  Time to think and contemplate the fate of the earth when nuclear war is contemplated.  Yes, “We must not underestimate it.”

It’s about time.

Isn’t it always?

Yeah, post-truth world is so ugly.

I’ve been annoyed for quite some time whenever I heard some explosion, disaster has been compared to nuclear bomb equivalent. This or that was twice as much as Hiroshima bomb…WTF.
I tried to explain to many that this is normalization of nukes…in vain.

Now we came to the point some pen-drivers speak Putin is bluffing. Like its about a poker game, the one with no money, the one just for fun (in fact for killing boredom, for filling endless emptiness).
Brics prophet, Pepe Escobar wrote:
“…non-stop provocations may lead Mr. Kinzhal, Mr. Zircon and Mr. Sarmat to be forced to present their business cards in select Western latitudes, even without an official invitation.”

“….it will be fascinating to bet on which locations Mr. Sarmat would be inclined to distribute his business card.”

It seems to me Pepe’s brains pH value dropped in last few years to somewhere around zero. This is a “fact”, he even forgot what is the official nuclear doctrine of his semi-god.

Yeah, in a span of few weeks world traversed from ‘no one should die’ to ‘everybody might die’. One must be Alive to believe it.

”Imperialism never dies.”

Sure it will. Imperialism is part of capitalism and its highest form. Capitalism is not eternal. States are not eternal. They were created by some people who stole the land and took it as their private property. Property is theft, as Proudhon wisely noted.

The idea that man-made institutions or laws are eternal or natural is not right. There is nothing that is right in capitalism. Its foundation is in greed, theft, and many forms of slavery.

It is based on the idea that human beings are not equal or free. Only those with property have any rights. Right to life, pursuit of happiness and freedom.

Property rights are insane. It is insane to think that something made by people would be above them. A clock, a factory, an industry, a farm, a government, an ism. The created is not above the creator. When human beings are being enslaved and even murdered by a clock, a factory, an industry, a farm, a government or an ism, it is obviously wrong. Psychopaths in power is sick. Their machines and their industries and their money, they really think they own this planet and everything in it! Psychopathy is the most dangerous mental illness there is.

When capitalism comes to its end we shall see true changes. We shall see the collapse of this evil empire and its insane institutions destroyed. The sense of quickening time only means this destruction is happening rapidly. And it’s about time. There is no need to despair.

I didn’t know all of those associations, do you know others? Very interesting. My (biological) father, founder of first corporate law firm in Beverly Hills (ecjlaw.com) had a number of 33° Freemasons as clients, that I knew about in my first 17 years I lived around or with him, and became VP to one of the most notorious ever, founder and President of Philosophical Research Society, apparently the center of Operation Monarch (mind control) near Griffith Park, Hollywood. Project Monarch does not show much in a search, but “Operation Monarch” does, which in itself is suggestive of powerful collusions, once you think about it.

My father, assassinated in 1982 (same year as Roberto Calvi of P2 Lodge in Italy, who almost collapsed the Vatican Bank) and both murders were staged as (apparent/highly~assisted) “suicides”. Like Robin Williams and, close enough, David Carradine, et al. etc etc etc ad nauseam. All by the same “High Cabal” truth be told, that is currently holding all us humans hostage.

The Old Man and his firm also did the taxes of the Gianinis whose Italian patriarch, A. P. Giannini, founded Bank of America in Great Quake era of San Francisco. And he (JWE) kept Armand Hammer out of the slammer when the IRS was going to send him up the river, forever, the one he used to launder money in unheard of ways, throughout Russia, and that they still are trying to unravel. Much like Elon Musk, who must have torn a page or two from Hammer’s playbook for that game, to have gone from 20-something $Billion net worth in the Spring of COVID, to 300 $Billion some 20 months later!

What else. That kind of money doesn’t grow on trees. But apparently it does in certain financial “laundromats”.

If you click my father’s eponymous firm’s website above, you’ll see their main exchange remains the same as the night he came home in 1969 and after waiting three years for it, announced with as much ebullient exuberance as I’d ever seen from him, “Ma Bell FINALLY gave me the perfect number, even much better than I’d asked!”

213-273-6333

And so it remains. Almost 40 years after his remains. Scattered ashes.

Tesla, whose remains, or well-dressed cadaver, were found in his room with an open, empty safe, died in the Hotel New Yorker.

Short of Armageddon we shall never know, but there is a distinct possibility that nuclear weapons are, or were originally, a hoax. The Manhattan Project failed to deliver. Plan B was to obliterate Hiroshima and Nagasaki conventionally and pass it off as Armageddon. Given the short time frame and absence of technology or any substantial proof of the hypothesis this is not unlikely. There is some good evidence to back this up.

Alexander P. de Seversky surveyed the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bomb damage and concluded it looked just the same as all the other Japanese cities that had been fire bombed with napalm.

‘Hiroshima Revisited’ Michael Palmer presents the medical evidence that Mustard Gas and Napalm were the cause of the injuries and deaths.

The great question is was a Nuclear Bomb ever subsequently detonated? If so, when? Before Hiroshima there was doubt about the possibility of a fission chain reaction. Was the Hydrogen Bomb the real thing? The H-Bomb incorporated a fission type detonator. Was a small or different kind of nuclear explosion device developed?

Akio Nakatini ‘Death Object: Exploding The Nuclear Weapons Hoax’ looks at the Physics.

‘Little Boy’ (the Hiroshima bomb) was not tested prior to dropping it. At the time it was mobilised there had never even been a nuclear explosion. Perhaps Oppenheimer lacked the computer power to model the conditions for a fission chain reaction. But what about all the mushroom cloud images? We are not so trusting now, but fakery did not begin with Photoshop. On inspection there are some serious giveaways. 

Akio asks why, if there was such confidence in the simple Hiroshima gun device, work on the much more difficult and uncertain implosion bomb? (Trinity test and Nagasaki).  He suggests that when the gun device failed they ran with it as a fake, and continued work on the more difficult implosion device.

Bonkers as it seems, a complete failure of the hypothesis up to the present day would explain why nuclear weapons have never been used since 1945. Why they were not used in the Korea when there was every reason to. Why numerous Cold War accidents and incidents never resulted in an explosion. How Bill Clinton could so casually lose the nuclear brief case.

The point of the Bomb was to invoke fear of an invincible super-weapon. The psychological effect of the fake bomb was equally effective. Production and deployment of nuclear weapons continued just as if they worked.  The B61 designed in 1963 is said to be the bomb still in service today.

By the end of WW2 the allies were already destroying whole cities across Germany and Japan with napalm. Churchill advocated use of mustard gas. The incendiary bombing raid on Tokyo on 9 March 1945 killed 83,793 people. This was repeated for all the major cities in Japan.  The Japanese leadership did not surrender in the wake of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing and indeed appeared unperturbed. They surrendered to the Americans when defeat by Russia was imminent.

The USSR soon had the design, but finding it dud they too would have tried to develop a real bomb. The race would then have been on – neither side ever sure what was faked and what real on the other side. Knowing your own were dud would not settle your nerves. Or it was simple collusion, like the easily provable space fraud that presumably grew out of it, (lending credance to nuke fraud in return).

Perhaps hope in The Bomb still exists – explaining the vast sums spent on particle accelerators (CERN).   .

CERN is also the precise locale, for some (precise) reason, where Sir Timothy Berners-Lee concocted the call letters of the internet we know (very redundantly) as WorldWideWeb. WWW, needlessly verbose as a symbol, which actually has more syllables ~over TWICE as many!~ when called out (“DoubleU.DoubleU.DoubleU” = 9, as in 3×3) as “worldwide web” (only 4). besides having burned up trillions of dollars of air time on radio and TV when called out. Just in SuperBowl ad time alone it costs over $50,000 each and every time it’s (incessantly) needlessly repeated these past 30 years. That’s trillions burnt lighting their cigars, enough to end hunger.

Hmmmmmmm…..

WWW = 333.

In more ways than one. Or 3.

And there’s a lot more to it than that. A lot more. But I digress.

FWIW, I have no doubt that the Hiroshima & Nagasaki bombs were what they were purported to be.

But having said that, it is a bit suspicious that they worked “first time”, only one of the two types of bombs having been tested beforehand, and then only once.

Anders Björkman is giving some extensive explanations concerning the „dangers“ of nuclear bombs
https://heiwaco.tripod.com/bomb.htm
Some time ago, the Russian news agency Sputnik was running a report concerning the oversize, huge „tzar bomb“ built by the Soviet Union. The bomb was so huge, when the ground staff tried to heave it initially into the bomb bay of a Tupolev 95, the bomb did not fit into the bay. The solders had first to cut away (with angular grinders??) the doors of the bomb bay, to attach the bomb onto the bomber.
Those were the days….

So long as we believe all of this is exclusively the work of a group of a few autonomous conspirators, the need for engaged radical action will not be felt, for that belief still allows for the possibility of the removal of the conspirators (for others) within the system of existing economic relations.

It will come a time however when our perception of the source of our troubles will suffer a change in nature to include, instead of effective individuals, the abstract ideas at the base of the current system, and then, what has to change will embrace everything, for, we’ll find ourselves no longer able to circumscribe the source to this or that aspect of reality, or to this or that group of individuals.

The US response is to shrug these statements off, just as it has done so for many years with Putin’s complaints about NATO forces moving up to its border.

This is perhaps the most disturbing aspect to the war. The blasé attitude to a potential nuclear confrontation. Which wasn’t the attitude that averted the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Equally disturbing – something that appeared on Russian State TV last week.

Times for a Sarmat RS-28 missile to fly from Kaliningrad to particular capital cities
(which happen to be those countries giving Ukraine the most weaponry):

Berlin: 106 seconds
Paris: 200 seconds
London: 202 seconds

Harold Pinter conjuring “”a vast tapestry of lies” with his well woven phrase is way too elegant for our quarantined reality.

More poignant and to the point would be “a vast roll of toilet paper”.

You know, rolls that sit atop the dispenser because they’re too massive to load?

Conjuring memories of global TP stampedes not so long ago.

Perhaps a flocking terrorized salute to all the same a** wipes who conjure these “policiies”?, perhaps unbeknownst to the flocks, who may be mind-controlled, but unconsciously savvy nonetheless. Deep down.

Well, that’s the narrative on this side of the Pond, that it is simple “dueling imperialisms”, but that ignores the rock solid fact that Ukraine has been part of Russia for a thousand years, before there even was a Russia. “Kievan RUS” … long before any grandaddy Nevsky was an itch in his great grandaddy’s pants.

Our MSM billionaire script du jour is the same recycled propaganda, as Curtin notes, that has been the default mode of our sorry “Manifest Destiny”. For 124 years. The “Ad Age.”

So, what? So, this is old news.

Yes, 1000 years ago Eastern Slavs – the forefathers of Ukrainians and Russians – were the same nation. But in the 19th century already the Ukrainians wanted to be a separate nation and a separate Ukrainian language developped. Like the Americans who wanted to be a separate nation than the British one (with the difference that there is no separate language). When USSR was formed, even Lenin accepted that Ukrainians are a separate nation and they have a separate language. Ukrainians still want to be a separate nation. The fact that some of them are ready to die for a separate Ukrainian state is enough for me to conclude that they are indeed a separate nation. Ukrainians dont need the approval of neither Russians or Americans to be a separate nation, their own will is enough for this. In the actual situation they are trying to receive help from whoever can provide.

Yes, too true, but all the same their conjoined history goes back to the Rurik Dynasty, stemming from Sweden, all the way to the 7th Century (even long before) when those dwelling to its south derived their name from the Swedish word, or close enough, “ros” which meant “to row” describing dwellers there who navigated the vast expanse on its many rivers.

Willingness to die doesn’t signify sovereignty, surely, when you consider many mercenaries evince a willingness to die on speculation of a big payday. Willingness to die, in short, does not always a nation make, nor a “cause”, let alone a great or noble one. It can easily be astroturfed, especially these days. Iran 1952 comes to mind as 1 particularly relevant (and ample CIA-funded) example. Among many (see the same year in “The Quiet American” by Graham Greene).

Etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, since “the bombs early light” of the CIA and Alden Pyle in that novel, “the boyish American, preaching democracy and spewing bombs in Southeast Asia” (to quote the truly great review of the film by H. Bruce Franklin in Feb. 2003 of “The Nation”).

The same blueprint, never really updated, was being used at the “dawn” of the CIA via the machinations of it’s fallen archangels, the Dulles brothers, who largely gave us all this, as chief corporate lawyer pimps for Sullivan & Cromwell, both of them already working tête à tete with a descendant of the Novgorod Teutonic Knight invaders 700 years prior, chap by the name of A Hitler. In the early 1920s! BEFORE the Beer Garden or Mein Kampf.

The defense rests.

Oh, a footnote to sovereignty issues: there were any number of “patriots” from the American South, 150 years ago, who were willing to die, and did. They (and the KKK) championed a separate nation they claimed they so “rightly” deserved: the Confederacy.

Need we say more?

The mission then too was Secession, the “Great Cause”, the preservation of slavery of another race.

Though their ways and valor may have been more than Azov.

(Mark Twain was one of them.)

An American chap by the name of A. Lincoln took exception to that.

When I went to Tijuana 10 years ago to have great dental work done, for literal pennies on the dollar, I saw there in the center of the plaza a towering statue built by the Mexicans in honor of Lincoln, holding two long lengths of broken chains in his hands

There has long been a conspiracy theory favored by those south of our border, that if Lincoln hadn’t beaten the Confederacy, it would have extended slavery south of our borders.

But, as for me, I’m just a humble Conspiracy Realist, and I’m saying the Ukrainians seeking (more) “secession” are walking around with a whole mouthful of the stuff.

One of the lesser strategic aspects about in the present geopolitical conjuncture is the total submission of Europe to US domination and exploitation. The Euro elites seem like rabbits hypnotised in a vehicle’s headlights. Europe’s elite will seemingly die for their US masters. These cringing elites will sell their souls and do anything which the transatlantic hegemon demands. One can say that the EU Commission is little more than a department of the CIA.

Over time what the US has been doing is eroding the ‘independence’ of its ‘allies’ The social, political, economic and military institutions. of those states and societies inside the Euro-Atlantic bloc. The security structure of these states have become more and more integrated with that of the US. Their criminal and airport bases are being networked in the US. Their security platforms and policies are being reformed to mimic those of the US; and US security platforms are being increasingly manifest and brought in line.

The elites of various fields, from politics to academia to finance and security in the Euro-Atlantic zone are more and more prone to visit and train in the US or through some US programs in some manner.

The occupied and colonized masses of Europe have willingly come to accept and adopt the system and ways of their colonizers and occupiers.

Suffice it to say that in the coming war III the Euro elites will be the opening cannon-fodder for the transatlantic war-machine. Europe will be no more. This much is certain.

Most of Europe has remained occupied territory (by the yanks) since 1945. US continuously undermines the european cultures and economies – along with any country which may provide competition.

The US does not tolerate any competition at all. But what their government does not yet realise is that they have now been out-competed by most of the rest of the world.

The US is a crumbling, ex-empire but seems to want to go out with a bang rather than a whimper.

USA INC or EU INC, back and forth, round and round. They’re both divisions of ‘Wall Street’ and then there’s that global division of CIA, the U N. (with its two gnarliest tentacles, World Bank and IMF, and now lately, WHO). It’s all in how you see the structure, but it’s all ubiquitous international Nazism, whose swan song (hopefully) is the ecstasy of imperial capitalism, and which is to the human family what the cyclotron is to the atom: increasingly divisive, or which the most rudimentary theology, of any plausible kind at all, should tell us (all) is rapidly deadly and essentially negative.

We’re living that dénouement. Or dying it.

‘Europe’s elite will seemingly die for their US masters.’ Are you sure it is not the other way round? After all, Europe is the primary Rothschild country. It has long been the Rothschild family’s amour propre to destroy Russia. They succeeded with communism in 1917, then with the oligarchs of the 1990s, and are now trying with the USA/NATO?

But being that we’re talking about weapons theoretically many times more powerful than Little Boy and Fat Man, and that use by one side would lead to immediate retaliation by the other, leading to the destruction of most forms of life on Earth, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well do ya, punk?”

TIMING RISK FOR NEAR-FAMINE

Sabotage of fertilizer prices and food production began before Ukraine conflict. Biden administration is blocking the freight rail shipping of fertilizer at the most critical time for spring planting. 

CF Industries of Deerfield, Illinois, the largest US supplier of nitrogen fertilizers as well as a vital diesel engine additive, issued a press release stating that, “On Friday, April 8, 2022, Union Pacific informed CF Industries without advance notice that it was mandating certain shippers to reduce the volume of private cars on its railroad effective immediately.”

Union Pacific is one of only four major rail companies that together carry some 80% of all US agriculture rail freight. By placing this arbitrary restriction on just a handful of shippers, Union Pacific is jeopardizing farmers’ harvests and increasing the cost of food for consumers. .

CF Industries noted that they were one of only thirty companies subject to the severe measure, which is indefinite. They ship via Union Pacific rail lines primarily from its Donaldsonville Complex in Louisiana and its Port Neal Complex in Iowa, to serve key farm states including Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and California.

Given how much the globalist elite want a one-world system,and not a disconnected mess of locally-governed tribalistic ragtaggle survivors who wouldn’t obey NWO masters,I tend to doubt a large-scale nuclear event is on their schedule. It seems to be the *fear* of a nuclear event that they’re pushing,as the constant fear is what makes everyone easy to herd into submission.
I don’t see why there’d be a such a need to scare, intimidate, bully, coerce, jolt, starve, psychologically torture and threaten the masses if the end goal is simply to nuke us out anyway. But then we’re talking about a sadistic and demented bunch of psychos here,so who knows.

Ottawa Canada had massive freedom riots today.. Around the globe the governed masses are rising against the global nation state system because the nation state is being used to manipulate the governed masses into war party warriors. but are the people are resisting?.

Freedom and human liberties vs corporate directed, government run. war-time tyranny is going to be what WWIII is about, I think. WWIII is not going to be about which corporation gets to invade whose sovereign space.

WWIII might have started in a traditional way in Ukriane, but the governed people of the world are tired of being made into canon fodder in service to corporate profit objectives. Its not governments but global monopoly powered corporations that are in pursuit of war, its the governments that are being forced by the corporate powers to prosecute them. . The right of governments to arm and conduct war is about to come to a close as the entire global governed people of the world are standing everywhere to defend their right to peaceful lives without war and disagreement between trading corporate and monopoly powers.

I believe we have reached the point where these war time governments are going to be surprised as their own governed masses rise to stop these wars from within. Its going to be interesting to see if the prediction comes about.

I would suggest the deaths from WW1&WW2 are suppased by this particlar WW3. The Deaths from lockdowns alone, Worldwide, need to be acknowledged in the tally of WW3 victims, those people commonly referred to as ‘Collateral Damage’.

idk how to do links here. this is part of a visualisation thingy , i’m more of a ”everything is working ut for the best of all concerned” person, rather than directing outcome but given the situation …
this is from Alicen Grey .. hologram press

Scripting is a highly effective and easy practice I took up in 2021. All you have to do is write about your desired reality as if it’s your current reality. So for example, if you want a car but don’t currently have one, you would write in your scripting journal, “I am so grateful for my new car; I love the way the interior smells; I love how it drives so smoothly,” etc. as if you’re experiencing the car currently.

Originally, I was only Scripting for myself. But when I started getting what I wanted (in record time!), I decided to extend my Scripting practice to include my loved ones, being mindful not to impede their free will. Lo and behold, my Scripting worked for them too!
So now, to close out 2021, I’ve decided to make some 2022 “predictions” by Scripting an ideal future on behalf of humanity as a whole.In 2022:

In 2022:
The COVID psyop (which includes, but is not limited to: all attempts at population control, medical tyranny, mainstream media fear-mongering and propaganda, the censorship of truth, and removing inborn liberties in the name of “health” and “safety”) is swiftly losing its appeal among the masses.
As the designers and beneficiaries of this COVID psyop continue to overplay their hand, more and more people realize that masks, needles, lockdowns, and all the other features of this COVID psyop, are NOT in their best interests.
A mass awakening is in full effect all around the world.
In 2022:
Everyday, billions of people realize they are sovereign, and that they have the option to withdraw from participation in the COVID psyop.
Everyday, billions of people find within themselves the courage to openly question and critique the COVID psyop.
Everyday, billions of people say “NO!” to mandates, propaganda, fear-based cultural division, censorship, and the suppression of their inborn liberties.
Everyday, billions of people say “YES!” to organic evolution, authentic expression, community-building activities, and that which serves the highest good of all.
Everyday, billions of people freely exchange valuable information that empowers them to heal themselves, repair all worldly damage done by the COVID psyop, and recognize and reject anti-human agendas.
Everyday, billions of people reclaim their attention from the COVID psyop and apply it instead to the conscious, intentional creation of a pro-human, life-loving world.
This awakening impacts more and more people everyday, until the majority of humans remember and reclaim their inborn power and free will.
Once this tipping point is reached, the majority of humans begin to explore and experiment with love-based, community-oriented endeavors wherein resources (both tangible and intangible) are shared and synergized.
In 2022:
Culturally-engineered divisions are transmuted into spontaneous celebrations of diversity.
The impulse to hoard is transmuted into the desire to share.
The perception of scarcity is transmuted into the ability to generate Free Energy.
The urge to judge and censor is transmuted into the willingness to explore perspectives.
The fear of infection and contamination is transmuted into an insistence upon face-to-face, in-the-flesh human interaction.
Social media addiction is transmuted into a healthy interest in life-sustaining, mind-honoring hobbies.
The closed circuit (Control System) gives way to the open circuit (Free Energy) for anyone and everyone who desires it.
New paths and possibilities become obvious to people who are ready to leave their limitations, fears and excuses behind.
In 2022:
The majority of humans learn the mechanisms of the occult (particularly of lesser magick) enough to see how we’ve been deceived and manipulated en masse.
The majority of humans come to terms with the fact that their beloved politicians, religious figures and celebrities have been both complicit and active participants in the disempowerment and destruction of innocent beings to support their lifestyles.
The spell of spiritual blindness is broken for the majority of humans, so that the damage can be accurately assessed, in order for healing to begin.
The majority of humans finally forfeit the urge to deny, ignore or downplay the scope of the vampire-parasite pedophile agenda.
The majority of humans learn how they’ve allowed their free will to be manipulated in service of dark agendas. As a result of this new awareness, the majority of humans take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings, words, and actions, effectively withdrawing from the co-creation of a world fueled by innocent blood.
Those adults who have benefited in any way, shape or form – whether directly or indirectly – from abusing and harming innocent children, experience swift and harsh justice. They, too, begin to recognize that non-harmful ways of living are not only possible, but ethically imperative. They accept the consequences of their actions and sincerely seek redemption.
As many child victim-survivors of the vampiric-parasitic pedophile agenda as possible, are brought to safe places where they can process their trauma and heal.
In 2022:
the majority of humans freely choose to radically restructure society in favor of humanity’s organic, love-based spiritual evolution.
The majority of humans commit to sharing their gifts with their communities, exchanging inspiration and excitement in a way that foundationally supports a fulfilling future of love, life and liberty for all beings.
We remember our power and purpose.
We remember that we are beautifully and totally interdependent.
We remember to Love each other.

It’s almost entirely a Freemasonry coordinated attack on the Roman Catholic Church, as becomes obvious as you note which news outlets “promote” the scandals (which is not to diminish the egregious crimes in any way). NYT, WaPo, NPR are leading the charge on all the sex crime news (of all kinds). WaPo, Washington Post, that outlet for CIA, always comes up as breaking the story on some new sex scandal. They just did one on a Dodgers pitcher, Trevor Bauer, who quite recently had charges dropped against him in one lurid scenario, and now WaPo comes out with a new story, just days later, “another woman has come forward”.” They ruined the careers of the Buckleys 35 years ago, in the McMartin Preschool scandal, even though all charges were proven false, trumped up. One wonders if “they’ll” go to that well once too often, someday. It seems to be a gift that keeps on giving. Just ask Roman Polanski.)

The Vatican Bank Scandal of forty years or so ago was headed by P2 Freemasons (Gelli and Calvi) and each time there’s some global drive to shame or criminalize Rome in some way or another, you don’t have to dig so deep to find them.

Within the first 3 minutes of a nuclear conflict, 2600 ‘high alert’ nuclear weapons are launched. They hit targets in Russia, the US and Europe. They target cities, nuclear power stations, industrial areas, oil refineries, transport hubs. In the following hours up to a further 7600 nuclear weapons are launched.

As the ‘covid’ narrative begins to fall apart, our billionaire, psychotic, satanic elite (ably supported by their entirely owned politicians and media) have hit upon a new idea to drive us all into desperation, starvation and serfdom – they’re going to start a war with Russia! Great idea, guys…what could go wrong? Unfortunately our ruling elite is a ‘kakistocracy’ – they’re not in positions of power because they’re clever but because they are well-resourced and brutal, they see only their own desires, seek only to satisfy their perverse greed and are blind to the risks of their actions. In this case the plan would be for a ‘limited’ conflict with Russia but that is an extremely high risk scenario that could so easily spin out of control and if it did we would end up in a nuclear war…what would that look like?

Richard, in a major nuclear war all practical and political control wd instantly become local. Maintenance of power by TPTB requires a continuation of top-down control. Therefore they will NOT instigate a major nuclear conflict.

Psychopaths at the top control a layer below them with various carrots, sticks, career preferments, corruption of every variety. This layer then passes laws to control the population. Psychopaths in their tiny numbers require the continuation of this structure.

Yes there may be a wider war– Transnistra w Russian involvement vs Moldova is one of their efforts. Or involving Poland and/or Romania. TPTB are doing their damnedness to get long-range missiles into Ukrainian hands to strike deep into Russia. which will certainly cause escalation. Especially because they are hiring experienced US military to fight in Ukraine. Still, TPTB must prevent any disturbance to the present orderly power structure because their power depends on it.

The psychological theatre has been the last resistance to re-asserting the vector of power from the 99% to its appointed institutions. The extent to which the state monopoly media efforts have exhausted all credibility is now at a level of Public Knowledge, The emperor’s lack of clothing is now openly discussed without fear of fabled state informers or electronic snooping causing a collapse in life chances. This is true of the Sitrep region in which we are reporting, Known as Oceania in the State Monopoly Capitalist franchise manuals. It is presumed that similar breakthroughs in recognising reality are also emerging in East Asia.

Actions required now focus on consolidating the fully sourced evidence of various state crimes against democracy and prioritising repairs to sabotaged supply chains and industrial sectors taken out of commission by the Management fifth columnists under the various banners of WEF and Technofascist Philanthropic foundations, The process must start with rejecting and dismantling the framework implemented through Black Rocks Going Direct paradigm. What is broken through sabotage can be easily repaired and where systems have remained in commission obviously not fit for purpose or designed to fail the process of evaluating and selecting alternative solutions can begin at the appropriate scale and level of democratic institution.

Risks remain as they did following the de-nazification process post 2nd world war and a similar de-radicalisation of higher levels of institutional and corporate management will be necessary to prevent continuity of regime and COG ( Continuity of Government , Gladio 2 ) sleeper saboteurs from preventing the return to the processes of democracy honoured more in the breach than the observation for the past 43 years from 1979 and 50 years since the Nixon shock.

World War II began because some people in the West were terrified of starting another world war. They were prepared to do absolutely anything to avoid war, it wasn’t a strategy, there was no plan behind it, it was just a terrified state of mind, it’s called appeasement.

Which powers that be, pray tell? You can attach a conspiracy theory to anything, proving it is just the problem. Too many well-known facts to explain. Why didn’t the Czechoslovaks fight in 1938? Why have the Ukrainians decided to fight now? Which is the more sensible option?

“Why?” questions are better avoided.

Asking questions “Why?” means considering historical facts AND context, which will ultimately lead to the conclusion that the source of the problems is not to be found in human beings of flesh and blood, in deliberate conspiracies born in autonomous consciences, but in an impersonal compulsion inherent to the current mode of production.

They will also lead to the conclusion that we are part of the problem, though to a lesser extent, and to the necessity of making a critique of the current mode of production rather than ranting against presumed autonomous conspirators.

But there is uneasiness in considering the above, even as a remote possibility, in part because it involves us. It’s more comforting to believe there is a group of people, the fewer the better, bent on causing suffering to the rest of us, with that belief having NOTHING to do with the economic system all of us live under or with us, rather it has to do with their condition of psychopaths.

We want to keep the current system, and get rid of these conspirators, or as one French theologian said:

Pour repondre a ta question, Tovarish Kolbe, the Czechoslovaks didn’t fight in 1938 because despite the fact that they had a relatively strong army and a line of border fortifications (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czechoslovak_border_fortifications) similar to the Maginot Line, the decision was made not to fight because a) the German was vastly stronger and b) the rest of the world tossed Czechoslovakia overboard.

You could draw all sorts of historical parallels, not only with that event but with countless others, but the fact remains, as Karl Popper has empirically proven, that the future cannot be extrapolated from the past. Thus, just because WWII started this way or that way, it doesn’t mean that any of it applies to the current situation.

While the Ukie-Russkie conflict bears some semblance to what might have happened had Czechoslovakia fought the Germans instead of surrendering, it also bears semblance to what might have happened had the Soviets not withdrawn nuclear weapons from Cuba in 1962, for instance.

If I take things more or less at face value, I see just about no similarity between Russia’s actions now and Germany’s at WWII time. Russia is not acting based on an ideology of superior race, destined to take over the world and eradicate subhuman peoples. Russia is simply saying enough is enough to its encirclement by hostile forces. Now, I’m not saying that Russians are saints and I don’t side with Russia, in fact I side with nobody – they can all kiss my ass.

Anyway, the most sensible option would be negotiating a peaceful solution. For Ukraine, the best solution would be agreeing to a neutral status and extorting both Russia and the West forever to maintain it. That’s in fact what the Ukies are best at. Historically, they’ve switched sides umpteenth times and these corrupt motherfuckers sure know how to embezzle, steal, bribe, and extort. Another solution would be splitting the country up, the western part aligning itself with the EU, the eastern part with Russia.

The most important thing, though, would be establishing a lasting relationship between the West and Russia, something that wasn’t done after the Cold War in which there wasn’t a clear winner and loser, whereafter no treaty was signed, no arrangement negotiated. I guess the West naively thought that Russia would fall apart and that the Russkies would drown in vodka – obviously underestimating their ability to drink the rest of the world under the fucking table. No, they got up from their knees and we’re where we are.

Now, this is the conventional view, and I’m sure that there are tons and tons of factors at play behind the scenes, with the New World Order being ushered in, shit like that. So, likening the current situation to WWII is plainly fallacious.

I only alluded to the Munich Agreement (to which incidentally the Czechoslovaks weren’t even a party) because it’s a prime example of appeasement at work, you know, “peace in our time”.

Of course it did nothing of the sort. Having ceded their border fortifications, the Czechs were simply overrun by German troops in March 1939. Shock horror, Hitler didn’t keep his word (the moral here is never to make deals with bullies). That’s when appeasers start to panic, so that same month Chamberlain, no, sorry, the British and French government offered a guarantee to Poland. Ha, ha, ha, we all know now it was a joke, but the combined military forces on land, sea and air of those two empires were vastly superior to those of Germany, so Germany felt obliged to respond: the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact.
The rest is history, one would like to say, except that it’s a history dismissed by many in the West as a “phoney war”. It was nothing of the sort to the east,. What occurred from the ousted instead was the pre-planned and systematic slaughter of large sections of Polish society: Piaśnica and Palmiry on the German Nazi side and “Katyn” on the Soviet Russian side. You could argue that the Czechs came off much better by not fighting. Of course they were put under a Protectorate, they received better ration cards, no comparison with the killing fields of Poland, Belarus and Ukraine. But this was not because they didn’t fight, it was because of their geographical location. They are not on the North European plain, on that highway between East and West. The same point can be made about Finland. If your homeland is not on a strategically important axis, count yourself lucky.

By launching his “special operation”, Putin has made a fatal mistake. He believed his own propaganda and assumed that the Ukrainians would be too corrupt and demoralised to put any resistance, but in fact the opposite is true. The Ukrainian resolve, the Ukrainian morale has laid bare the weaknesses of the demoralised, the backward, top-down commanded second largest army of the world.

And again what deal should they make? No deals until the Russians get off their land. The Ukrainians are under not illusions. In the first phase the Russians brought mobile crematoria and special police units to “de-Nazify” Ukraine (or Little Russia as they prefer to call it). It would have been (and might still well be) a repetition of what was done to the Poles in 1939, and to other nations on countless other occasions.

And most east European states are under not illusions. As President Kaczyński said in Tbilisi in August 2008: “Today it’s Georgia, tomorrow it might be Ukraine, then the Baltic States and then perhaps my country, Poland.” Did he have a crystal ball, no, he simply history, he knew geography and he understood geopolitics.

Putin famously described the collapse of the Soviet Union as a “genuine tragedy” the demise of the “historical Russia. Russia has its security concerns, it’s always had them, not just Putin. Being located on the vast Eurasian plain it is always eager to grab hold of the gateways. One is in the Caucasus, another in Romania, and the largest is in the middle of Poland, between the Masurian Lake District and the Carpathian Mountains. If you look at history, at the first partitions of Poland in the 18th century, at where the fiercest fighting was on the eastern front during WWI, or where the Nazi-Soviet partition ran 1939-1941, and again in 1944, you will see that it constitutes a narrowing, a gateway of sorts,
Panta rei, but geography doesn’t really change and as Albert Einstein said: “If you want to know the future, look at the past.”

So should anyone be accommodating to Russia, the largest country in world with a distinctly autocratic and genocidal history?

Interesting.

As to appeasement, Russia probably sees itself as having been appeasing the West long enough, and now it’s time to act.

Does Russia have a genocidal history? Maybe. Is its history more or less genocidal than the history of any of the Western nations?

Looking at the past is always good, as is looking in any direction, whether spatially or chronologically. Certain patterns do repeat, but it’s not that easy to discern which patterns and how.

Does Russia have a genocidal history? I can assure it does, the evidence abounds ever since Moscow became the chief tax collector of the Golden Horde. Of course, most European states have also had pretty brutal, even occasionally genocidal episodes. But you can never generalize because what defines Europe is its extreme diversity, just look at the languages!

You’re obviously French, so why should you give a toss about Gdańsk or Danzig or Ukraine for that matter? Your concerns are probably more oriented to the Maghreb, which is naturally of less interest to east European countries that have never had colonies. But the Poles have had encounters with Muscovy – later Russia – from pretty mush the outset. And we do make a distinction between Muscovy – later Russia – and. say, Belarus or Ukraine.
That’s why we know that the Russians aren’t by any stretch of the imagination appeasers. That’s distinctly a Western disease. Not to say I don’t like Russians, as individuals they can be the best people in the world – some of them indeed are, but collectively?

How can I put it gently, culturally because it is cultural. Say, Sergei Prokofiev’s Dance of the Oprichniks in Sergei Eisenstein’s wonderful Ivan the Terrible, commissioned by Stalin because he was a fan of that fellow genocidal tyrant Ivan the Terrible, as was Peter the Great, and so is Zhanna Bichevskaya a sweet Russian folk singer who wants Ivan the Terrible declared a Christian saint?!
https://youtu.be/5tcPBx3O_H4
The Oprichniks were followed by the Okhrana, Cheka, NKVD, KBG, FSB, etc. it’s a tradition.
Of course you’ve had your religious wars, absolutism. revolution (also pretty bloody), but we’ve had our Henrician Articles, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (as it’s called in English), which we actually call the the 1st Republic, as were the inhabitants of today’s Baltic States, Belarus and Ukraine. That’s why we all know we are culturally different from Russia.

Your assessment is very much off, as there is nothing “French” about the part of me that’s Quebecois. Plus, I’m probably quite a bit more Czech than Quebecois. As if it mattered anyway.

Whoever “you” are, you indeed might be culturally different from Russia. So fucking what? People from around Saint-Etienne are very culturally different from Parisians, people from the Olomouc region are very culturally different from people around Ostrava, not even 100 km away, Albertans have a completely different culture from Torontonians.

You’re painting Russia black, implicitly whitewashing the history and equally as, if not more, aggressive culture of other nations.

For obvious reasons, if Russia is the largest country in the world, it stands to reason that Russian are expansive motherfuckers because otherwise wouldn’t be the biggest country. True, a good part of the territory is uninhabitable, which means that they probably didn’t have to kill off too many people to get it, but still.

Historically speaking, it’s not Russia that’s wreaked the worst damage in the world. It’s the Western European nations and Americans.

If the alleged war in Ukraine is indeed taking place somewhat along the lines as it’s portrayed, it certainly is not a genocide. It might be the exact opposite since a genocide might be perpetrated against Russian minorities in the eastern regions. Plus, Russia has decided to bare its teeth and launch a preemptive strike to show the US that they can’t fuck around with them. But this interpretation is valid only if you take things at face value – the whole thing might well be a hoax along the lines of COVID.

The bottom line is that (if it exists as alleged) this is a conflict between two Soviet republics, which they have to resolve. Claims that Russia’s attack against Ukraine is an attack against “Western values” – whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean, our values are pretty fucked up in the first place – is pure bullshit. Ukraine is riddled with corruption, it’s a shithole run by mafias.

Ukraine is of no interest to anyone apart from fucking with Russia. The only two things are that they produce lots of grains and I’ve read about plans to build solar plants the power generated by which would be used to produce hydrogen and supply it to Western Europe by adding progressively more of it to natural gas.

Alright so I was way off, since you declare yourself to be a Quebecois Czech, Canadian whatever. I wouldn’t know what concerns you – perhaps Trudeau – then I can only sympathise. I doubt very much you’ve ever been to Ukraine, and to dismiss any country as a shithole run by mafias says more about yourself than any particular country.

I didn’t mention anything about “Western values” being attacked – I’m sure a lot more of that is going on in Trudeau’s Canada than in Ukraine. No, instead Ukrainian cities are being attacked, devastated by Russian rockets, missiles and artillery, in occupied zones, Russian Federation troops (not necessarily Russian, not necessarily even RF, come to think of it, but definitely Russian army) are systematically murdering, pillaging and raping – doing an Oprichnik dance if you will. And this will continue (it’s already been going of for over two months) until the Russians are driven out, which will also inevitably involve a a lot of slaughter.

That’s the reality of the situation, but if you’re on the other side of the globe, you’re free to speculate that it’s part of the Covid hoax, or a problem that can be resolved by alternative forms of power generation – and that really is of no consequence or relevance to anyone else.

FYI, I declare myself as an alive entity, erroneously classified as a human, for human to be I wish not because some might think that I’m of the same species as you, Tovarish Kolbe, and other fuckheads of your ilk.

As to Ukraine being a shithole, I’m presently closer to the same than you might think and I have first-hand experience with Ukie mafias. The fact that dozens of millions have emigrated from Ukraine over the past decades speaks for itself. Am I sorry for any place in the Universe being in such deep shit? Definitely. Does it mean that I’m gonna fuck up my world too? No.

Lastly, spare me the propaganda of Russians systematically murdering, pillaging, and raping. There is absolutely no evidence for any of that – if anything like that happens, it’s certainly not systematic. On the contrary, given the amount of images about alleged pillaging in Ukraine that are clearly fake, one might wonder whether anything is happening in Ukraine at all.

On a more positive note, there are many things related to our sense of time over which we have a great deal of control.

Our memories, for example, are not visible, but we know them to be realities nonetheless.

Also our genuinely creative writers, painters and musicians create their own sense of time, and, again, they are working within what they know to be reality.
If it were not real, nothing would be created.

Granted, not everybody can be a Raphael, a Beethoven or a Shakespeare, but creativity doesn’t have to be the same thing as genius.
It can be a normal part of human life, without bells and whistles, and without an Oscars ceremony.
It can keep us out of the chaos and the panic.

Do something with your lives, my friends and colleagues.
It’s the antidote to those who see only emptiness, gaps, holes, cracks and nothingness which they can exploit, whereas the creator – the doer – knows, and cooperates with, life itself.

The thing about life is that it isn’t something to exploit.
It just IS.
We can’t control it, except in very superficial ways, but we can work with it.
What could be more fulfilling than that?

Elsewhere on this page comes again that popular statement, “We are what we eat”.
But I consider it to be a lie.

As far as I’m concerned, we are what we focus on, and the ‘authorities’ have no power over that at all.
If those of us who are not morally retarded or clinically dull-witted end up imprisoned or exterminated, at least it will be possible to say that we did our level best.

The rather pessimistic tone of this article is not unrealistic, but there are places where hope can still be found.

I’m not one to hold a grudge against anyone, and I’ll gladly consider, say, 1990 a tabula rasa, a point whereafter we start anew and forget the past. No problemo, says the Czech in me who was nearly crushed by a fucking Ukie tank as a little baby.

You ignore the simple fact that those who “rule” are insane (or else they wouldn’t want to “rule”). Then, ignoring this reality, you proceed to imagine they would never seek to destroy their bailiwick.

Very small children might say “I’ll kill you today; then tomorrow I’m going to give you a big hug.” What makes you think insane “rulers” reason any differently?

They cannot conceive of a nuclear holocaust taking them out along with the millions or billions of others they care nothing about. Their knowing it’s coming, in their eyes, protects them.

Besides, they may have decided a nuclear winter would fit their agenda perfectly. They’ve already concocted “limited nuclear weapons” without realizing such weapons are like being “a little bit pregnant.”

Thanks for the reply.

I do understand your point, but think we likely disagree on why insanity is relevant to the outcome (nuclear war).

Of course, I agree completely that it’s insanity to want to dominate and subjugate others to further a selfish, greedy agenda. However, I don’t equate this with the methodical and considered ways in which we are manipulated, deceived and often murdered in the name of that agenda. It’s insanity, but at no time have they harmed themselves (or us) to such a degree that the agenda is stopped or even slowed. This would change immediately in the event of a nuclear war.

Big money in “fighting” invasive pests. Ask them how the gypsy moth is doing. They call it slow the spread. Ask them how they are doing with slowing the spread of the emerald ash borer. What about Dutch elm disease. Butternut blight. Chestnut blight.

Every attempt our government makes at controlling any kind of pest has been a failure.

But it’s so much fun spending the money and trying.

Herbaceous invasive plants are countless. Leafy spurge. Purple Loosestrife. Dandelions (joking but true at the same time). Baby’s breath.

Go to Hawaii. About everything on those islands is invasive.

How about round gobies, zebra mussels and cladophora in the Great Lakes. Not to mention lamprey. We took care of them all right…….

They are just spending money to make an effort to justify their existence. They are failures.

Every effort they have made has been a failure.

But what are we going to do with all these over-educated geniuses who can’t do anything else.

They can work for the government while they figure out how to build a master germ capable of killing the entire population of the world.

The next one could be real and I am not talking about nuclear devastation.

It would go something like the Philadelphia yellow fever outbreak of 1793. That was a good one. Several thousand people died and no one knew why. Bodies just lying in the streets because others were afraid to touch them or breath the odors coming the rotting corpses. Bed ridden people that were abandoned crawled from their beds into the streets looking for help, but the city was abandoned by those not stricken and that’s where they died. Slaves were brought in later to remove the rotting bodies.

Tell me again why we are playing with gain-of-function microbes.

Most of the agro-chemicals the scientific Green Revolution imposed were useless or destructive. Only a tiny fraction of the quantities used reaced the target pest or weed. Agro-chemicals poisoned the soil and living things, including ourselves. GMOs are worse in being self-propagating (gene drive), like the new jabs.

UN Environment Programme claims that meat is the “world’s most urgent problem”. Not fossil fuels. Not war or poverty. Meat. So in 2018, UNEP gave its most prestigious award to Beyond Meat & Impossible, two producers of vegan fast food. But more is to come.

You are what you eat. They want to turn us into plants.

I’m not too worried about that.
Cows and horses eat grass and hay all day, but they don’t turn into plants.

It seems like a distraction to me.
What they really want is to turn us into machines. They’ve pretty much admitted it too.
That schoolboy enthusiasm for space rockets, robots and mechanical building blocks has not matured in the adult population at all.
It is exactly as it was when our manipulators were over-indulged teenagers.

I keep recommending that people watch “Planet of the Humans” – if only for the monstrous bit about using animal fat to power generators.

There’s a scene where live animals (I believe goats) are being fed into a huge grinding machine to produce this new found fuel.

I’m convinced that is the fate they have in store for the millions of factory farm animals.

(And some may wonder why I loathe Science and Scientists!)

The left, left me. The European ‘left’ is no longer a ‘left’ in any recognisable sense of the word. This process was engineered by Blair and Clinton – architects of the new Centre. The contemporary ‘left’ as found on publications such as the Guardian and NYT are gung-ho for a war against Russia; also just look at the unprepossessing German greens, very keen on eugenics and population reduction, which of course would mean mass starvation. In the UK the ‘left’ has produced J.M.Keynes, Bertrand Russell, George Bernard Shaw, H.G.Wells, the Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Phillip) and various other luminaries who want to wipe out huge tracts of humanity. Moreover the northern hemisphere is undergoing a massive population decline since female fertility has dropped under the key figure of 2.1 children per woman.

But hey it sure looks like war in any case. Being a Septuagenarian I find it a little more philosophical. I understand the Russians have got what they call a ‘perimeter defence’ check it out. This means that even if Russia is bombed to oblivion, its strategic counter-measures are automatically activated by earth tremors brought about by a NATO bombardment. Just watch those Sarmat 28 babies fly. Farewell life on earth, apart from the worms, they deserve it more than us.

Since March 2020 social life in Western society took on all the features and dynamics of a cult. I know – I was in one for 10 years. Weirdly, you cannot ‘leave’ this cult, it is all pervasive and soon will be enforced with digital ID. You can realize you are in a cult and take some actions in terms of psychological, intellectual and legal defence. But once you have been in a cult you know there is no ‘rebellion’ possible – you are either a follower or a threat. If you do end up seeing through the cult….you cannot ‘reform’ it…all you can do is leave and hope the cult will implode – as most do. For now…implosion is the only hope of the ‘big cult’ we are all in. Implosion is complicated, messy and in this case, could be terminal for all of us.

Agree. I have been listening to a number of people who dispute the existence of nuclear weapons and point out, for example, Hiroshima and Nagasaki have always have people, plants, and animals living there from immediately after the bombings to today.

Photos are hard to find from that era but some I saw show people carrying on with their lives in the immediate aftermath, as if the bombs were traditional and only called nuclear.

So I question the fearmongering.

There are a number of considerations:

1) Radiation is invisible. And slow. Consider the Marshall Islands, where innumerable tests were conducted – and where its citizens are still being affected by radiation (two documentaries: “The Dome” and John Pilger’s “The Coming War With China”)

2) The first bombs were just that: “first” – immature, even infantile compared to later concoctions. They could only do so much damage.

3) The psychos who unleashed the first bombs wanted survivors so as to study the effects of radiation on humans (Science never rests).

4) Presumably the psychos could have timed the detonation to be at ground level instead of way above, thus limiting the damage.

5) The psychos didn’t care about Japan – they wanted to send a message to Russia that they and they alone were in charge now.

The bombs that landed on Japanese cities were tiny, in the low kiloton range. Since then, and I’ve followed the historical accounts of all the main scientists involved, they have become megaton bombs, big enough to completely erase very large cities in a flash.

What we have now is a system that will run on full auto – the “dead hand” approach to retribution. If things get to a certain point, and we are already very close, then no bright rebel hero can save us.

Before we became obsessed with time there was just light, darkness and seasons.
Time was invented by the rulers as a form of control over the slaves.
‘You will slave/work for this period until we are done with you’.
‘You will arrive and leave when we say’.
‘You will honour and respect the days we declare honourable’
Children have no sense of time until it is drummed into them.
Animals have no sense of time at all.
Not only do the ruling psychopaths have us by the short and curlies. They have us by the ticks and tocks.
The fucking fools have built a prison of time and locked themselves in it.

Forgive a tinge of unbridled egoism here, but my hypothesis of time makes it a prison every living thing is locked in.

Time is created, yes – but not by masters for their slaves – slaves aren’t told when to work: they work for their masters till they drop dead.

Time is created by living entities – more of it by the young, less by the old (which explains why time goes slower for children, faster for seniors).

Before living entities, everything occurred at once – from the Big Bang to the first bacteria. Then everything became chronological.

And all the created time flows out to eventually become “Dark Matter.”

We carry our prison with us wherever we go. Till we cease creating time.

(No, I don’t see my hypothesis of time gaining much traction any “time” soon.)

“the USS Maine exploded from within in Havana harbor (a possible false flag attack), declared war on Spain in order to confiscate Spanish territories – Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines.”

Possible? The way the Kennedys referred to the sinking of the Maine strongly implies they knew it was a false flag. BTW the cruelty of these US occupations is still underappreciated – especially the Philippines which in many ways served as a model for later US colonisations.

“a vast tapestry of lies,”

Funny how that phrase has gone into the language. The most famous tapestry, the Bayeux Tapestry, has some very strange things about it. Firstly, the name is inaccurate – it isn’t a tapestry (it’s an embroidery) and the first record of it in Bayeux is over three centuries after the event. Secondly, and more importantly, there are some dubious things in what it portrays. If it’s Norman propaganda, why is Harold’s claim to the throne not more clearly dismissed? This was the whole basis of the Conquest but Harold is never called ‘usurper’ or ‘tyrant’ or such like. It’s plausible to read in the tapestry that Harold was promised the throne by Edward and only promised it to William under duress when held captive. Who is the strange woman William consults before launching the invasion? His witch mother? Most famously, how did Harold die? Most people since Gibbs-Smith in 1957 think he’s the figure trampled by the horse, not the one with an arrow (and it seems improbable it could be both like in an animation because the figures carry different weapons and have different coloured leggings).
However the name ‘Harold’ is split over the figure with an arrow in his eye. It seems probable the arrow in the eye is a symbol of Harold’s fate, a symbol of either divine or Norman punishment. Harold’s entire northern campaign is stitched out of the record yet the Danes had the strongest claim to tthe throne.in lineage. It reminds me of how the Russian Revolution has been cast as Reds vs. Whites with the so-called Greens written out of the mainstream narrative. This isn’t even to consider what might have been the symbolism of the scenes on the borders which include sexual activity, a very strange thing to appear on an object supposedly made by nuns and hung in a cathedral!
Most curiously, why does the story seem to have such strong parallels to the Babylonian Conquest of Judah when Zedekiah was overthrown by Nebuchadnezzar? Is this why, for example, Harold swears on two caskets and one bears a striking resemblance to the usual image of the Ark of the Covenant?

On a separate issue but still releated to timing, what an amazing coincidence that a story appears to link the words ‘Conservative’ and ‘porn’ just before the local elections! Terrible results for the Conservatives, especially if reinforced with more ‘Partygate’ fines, are likely to bring the leadership issue to the fore. I’ve seen the first corporate-state media hints of an autumn general election (bear in mind the UK doesn’t have to have one until January 2025).

Yes, ‘they’ give us no time. They hit us with so many crises at once that no one knows how to react or protect oneself.
Lets count the crises:
1) Political crisis: Danger of world war -even nuclear war (mentioned above).
2) Enforced trans-humanism (mentioned above).
3) Economic crisis because of these “Covid-measures”: These were unnecessary, they didn’t work (masks, jabs and so on) but already ruined and will even more in future ruin millions of little businesses and jobs.
4) Economic crisis because of the sanctions against Russia: An energy crisis and crisis of supply of important materials for our industries and an agrarian crisis because of lacking fertilizers. Western economies will definitely collapse.
5) A worldwide food crisis of to this day unknown proportions.
See F. William Engdal’s “BIDEN CYNICALLY USES UKRAINE TO COVER FOOD SABOTAGE” – http://www.williamengdahl.com/englishNEO26Apr2022.php
(also see: https://off-guardian.org/2022/04/25/5-signs-they-are-creating-a-food-crisis/ )

Even more than in the ‘First World’ there will be hundreds of millions dying of poverty (hunger, disease, violence) in the ‘Third World’. Because of a broken down economy and thus wide spread poverty in Europe there will be hardly any demand for fruit and food imports from Third World countries. Tourism to tourism countries like Thailand, Sri Lanka will break down to zero – and ruin the lives of millions there.

Already happened over here.

A Teesside fertiliser company employing hundreds has halted work at its Stockton plant – because of rising natural gas prices.

CF Fertilisers says it does not know when production will resume at its Haverton Hill site.
