Putin vs. Big Pharma: The ultimate smackdown Is Putin plotting to purge the pill peddlers? If so, we have some suggestions

Riley Waggaman

Is Vladimir Putin preparing to cleanse Russia of Big Pharma shills (his entire cabinet)? Some seem to think so and there is certainly evidence that some kind of anti-shill crackdown is coming.

Let’s explore this intriguing news item together.

Take the wheel, TASS:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized foreign drug companies for pushing their products through local medical institutions and via doctors in Russia using their deep-pocketed resources.

“Unfortunately, foreign pharmaceutical companies attracted some heads of our medical institutions, and medical workers in 30 regions. And they pushed their medicines [on to the Russian market], paying quite a lot of money for it. We saw that under just one scheme they doled out 500 million [rubles],” he said at a meeting with Yury Chikhanchin, Head of the Federal Financial Monitoring Service.

Putin noted that such practice also exists in the EU and worldwide.

“They do it everywhere. They do it in Europe and overseas too. This is how they operate,” he said.

Chikhanchin responded by saying his agency was working with the FSB to root out gratuitous Big Pharma grifting.

First of all: At the very least Putin deserves a golf clap for saying rude things about Big Pharma. No one loses points for doing that. So we salute you, Vladimir Putin. Keep it up.

At the same time: talk is cheap. If you’re going to launch a Novichok rocket at Big Pharma for “pushing their products through local medical institutions” (as TASS summarized) in 30 regions… this doesn’t exactly sound like the cleansing enema that Russia so desperately needs.

If Putin is sincere about expelling degenerate pill pushers from Russia, how far is he willing to go? Because in order to have a meaningful impact he’ll have to go pretty far. All the way, actually.

You need to cut the head off the snake. And the snake lives in Moscow. The snake has wrapped its slimly reptile-bod around various federal ministries. The snake is suffocating Russia at the highest levels of government.

That’s just a fact.

Maybe it’s time for a “performance review” at the Ministry of Health? (source)

If tomorrow the FSB announces it bagged the deputy director of a village clinic in Potato-Patch, Yakutia, this will not qualify as a successful crackdown on Big Pharma’s nefarious influence in Russia. It will qualify as a massive fail.

So which Big Pharma Strumpets should be Gitmo’d by the FSB? We’re so glad you asked.

All of the Important Russians who partied with Tedros and Big Pharma at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum — straight to the gulag for some desperately needed rehabilitation.

And of course, no Big Pharma smackdown would be complete without frog-marching Madame Arbidol to the most remote Siberian penal colony. Sorry, we don’t make the rules.

Russia’s largest pharmaceutical firms also need to be put in the crosshairs. As we saw with Sputnik V, Russian drug companies enthusiastically collaborate with western pharmaceuticals to create horrific poisons for the masses. And the Russian government is invested in this gross cooperation — which is slightly discouraging?

Furthermore, the worst medicine-related grifting involves government contracts. And also: a lot of the pill peddling and unethical contracting is done legally.

As Tsargrad explained in an article unpacking Putin’s comments:

Putin demanded action against Western pharmaceutical companies that bribe our doctors. Tsargrad examined the problem and found out that this bribery is most often completely legal. To change the situation, you need to change the laws. […]

The peculiarity of Russia lies in the active participation of the state in the market of medical services. It is more profitable to get a big contract and relax than to work painstakingly with doctors, although this is not neglected either. Therefore, our “favorite” form of illegal cooperation of pharmaceutical companies with the heads of institutions and officials is to ensure victory in the auction.

So, for example, at the end of 2019, the head doctor of the republican oncological dispensary of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania was caught red-handed while receiving a bribe on an especially large scale. A few days before that, the head physician of the Penza Regional Oncology Center received a five-year sentence (as did the director of the pharmaceutical company who gave him the bribe). There are other precedents, many of them. […]

Of course, the problem raised by Chikhanchin and Putin concerns not only Western companies — the domestic pharmaceutical industry has adopted the worst habits of its “big brothers” and interacts with medical personnel no less successfully.

That sums up the situation pretty well, we think.

We welcome any and all efforts to make Russian healthcare less scammy and more healthy.

But let’s not forget that after two years of “public health measures” — two years of non-stop grifting and murderous lies — Russia now finds itself in a very, very deep hole — a hole dug by the Russian government. Go figure.

A population decline of more than 1 million people in 2021. The largest decline in decades. (source)

We should add that there are rumors on the Russian interwebz that several high ranking officials are under investigation as part of this alleged Big Pharma crackdown. We haven’t found anything substantial to support this claim but… fingers crossed?

Let’s see what the FSB cooks up. It’s 2022. Anything is possible.

Even atonement.

“I want to wish you success not only in the Russian market, but also in global markets, and express the hope that the new year will be favorable for your company and for solving the problems that we are now talking about,” Putin addressed the head of AstraZeneca.(source)

Did you, ah. even “digest” the above article? As is not uncommon with even the best of leaders, including, but not limited to, Julius Caesar and his star-crossed efforts to purge Rome of deadbeat leadership on behalf of the commoners, Putin is dealing with a healthcare infrastructure amply infested by pharmaceutical grifters of all stripes, not least of which those of Western stripes who have bribed their way in, interested parties, the Usual $uspects. At least, according to the Wag who observed and reported this. It does have a pretty resonant ring of truth, given other reactions in the area, such as Lukashenko resisting “Coronapsychosis” and the back and forth about all this and his understandings with Putin. So we should maybe thank the humble Russia-watcher for adding such context, rather than stoop to more kneejerk Putin-bashing, of which there is already an adequate supply.

Pro or Ho?

Is your doctor a medical professional or a paid whore for the pharma cartel? A simple question for your doctor to determine if they are a “Pro or Ho”:

“Should healthy children under the age of 12 get the shots?”. If the answer isn’t “NO” then you have a “Ho”. There is no “yes” or “it depends”. The IFR for healthy kids is so far to the right of the decimal that they have a statistically ZERO chance of dying from covid. It is of zero benefit for them to get the shots. It also is of zero benefit to anyone else because they will still get it and transmit it, injected or not.

ASK YOUR DOCTOR.

Fox News and Tulsi Gabbard Push for Appeasement

Note:

  • Tulsi Gabbard has membership/training links to the WEF and CFR.
  • Fox News were the first major channel to call Arizona for Biden.
  • Fox are pushing the “humiliation of America” narrative.

And now we know the reason for this:

The release of the public service message can only mean that NYC officials, acting on information they have received from Washington, believe that a nuclear war is now a distinct and even imminent danger. Rather than pulling back from the brink, Biden is escalating the reckless war against Russia. . . .

Alternatively, it could just be a propaganda stunt so that all the Putinista shills have coordinated talking points!

You wanted Tucker?

Re: inflation and military aid
Contrary to the narrative pushed by Tucker, there is no significant connection between inflation and the sending of weapons to Ukraine. Even if $100bn in new weapons were to be sent, it would have only a minor impact on inflation in a $25tn economy; and that impact would still be in the pipeline. In reality, most of the weapons are from existing stocks, and the cost is an allocation for future replacement; i.e. it’s not been spent yet and therefore hasn’t caused existing inflation. So why is Tucker pushing this narrative?

Re: the “cause of liberty” argument.
Ukraine is in a state of existential war in which Russia is engaging in a genocide against the Ukrainian people and culture. In comparison, when the U.S. was in a much lesser war, it rounded up a certain class of citizens (the Japanese) and put them in concentration camps.

Re: is Putin a communist?
Check the “values” he supports!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenin%27s_Mausoleum
Since 1991, there has been some discussion about removing Lenin’s body to the Kremlin Wall Necropolis and burying it there. President Boris Yeltsin, with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church, intended to close the tomb and bury Lenin next to his mother, Maria Alexandrovna Ulyanova, at the Volkov Cemetery in St. Petersburg. His successor, Vladimir Putin, opposed this, stating that a reburial of Lenin would imply that generations of citizens had observed false values during seventy years of Soviet rule.[14]

Re: the “Russia conquering the world” strawmen
It is the Belt and Road initiative which is conquering the world. This is a Khazarian partnership including New Israel, Russia and China; and Ukraine is a central component.

Tulsi Gabbard is quite the piece of work. Check out Dave Emory’s exposé of her past and present contributions, at his site, up and running, his oeuvre of 40 years, “For The Record” and his broadcast of a few years ago, “Who is Tulsi Gabbard?” She just does not pass the sniff test, not even close, all kinds of bizarrely convoluted history. She is maybe less credible than “Ruth Paine” as a “liberal”, and Paine best bro’s with DCI Allen W. Dulles’ mistress. Surreal liberalism? Yet Paine has posed that way for almost a century, like Tulsi is apparently miming, body language and all.

Sheeesh, she reminds me in many ways of Eugene McCarthy fronting the anti-war movement in 1968, splitting the Democratic ticket after rival RFK’s murder, just enough vote-drain of suckers for Nixon to be “elected”, then after a respectable 11 years of mourning, switching parties to become a Reagan backer.

It don’t get more incredible. Except for Tulsi, “Gulf War Vet”.

Thank you; that’s what the internet is for!

She [Tulsi Gabbard] is viewed favorably by Steve Bannon, one of the lynchpins of American fascism and reaction.

I didn’t actually know about the Bannon connection, but I connect mostly by shared commonalities in talking points, and was just about to post the following.

I’ve never bothered watching much of Steve Bannon, and it can be difficult finding direct quotes, but he usually allows his guests to state positions for him. Here, Joe Kent, a congressional candidate, rattles through a number of Putinista positions. The overall objective is to block the sending of advanced weapons to Ukraine; but fortunately, they’ve been outplayed by the Trump-Pompeo camp.

As a matter of key core, relevant, history I won’t let go, Fox was also, epicly, the 1st to call the 2000 “(s)election” for W, after all the others had just called it, accurately, for Gore.

John Ellis was serving a 30 day contract as chief @ of the Fox Elections desk, and dropped that red herring before our collective noses.

John Ellis, 1st cousin of John Ellis Bush, aka JEB, who in his capacity as Florida governor took that baton and did the rest of the dirty work, with assists from his elections vamp, Katharine Harris, and when even that wasn’t enough, from the deeply unmourned Supreme Injustice, Nino Scalia, don of SCOTUS.

That John Ellis.

As Yakov Smirnoff might say, “Is this a great country, or what?”

Post election comment on the November 2000 “morning after” from The Times (London): “What can only be called a charade of an election will have given hope to dictatorships everywhere.”

In the “good old days” of affluent adolescent complacency I would have considered him a money grubber but I’ve wised up now and I feel for him because we are all in the same position. I have some savings but I have already started to eat into them with the skyrocketing “cost of living” and, though my wife is full of confidence building rhetoric, I can see the clear logic of the situation i.e. even if you have a bit stashed away, when what’s going out is greater than what’s coming in, it doesn’t take a genius to see the inevitable result.

Thus the underlying financial war of attrition.

From Pepe Escobar:

The Suicide Spectacular Summer Show, currently on screen across Europe, proceeds in full regalia: a trashy, woke Gotterdammerung remake, with Wagnerian grandeur replaced by twerking.

Decadent Emperor Nero at least exhibited pathos and some degree of artistic talent. Here we’re just a toxic mix of hubris, complacent mediocrity, delusion, crude ideological group-think and outright irrationality wallowing in white man’s burden racist/supremacist slush – a profound sickness of the Western soul.

To blame it on Biden and his tottering likes would be too reductionist: after all these are puny politico/functionaries merely parroting orders. This is a tectonic historical process: NATOstan trying to contain Eurasia. A historical drama with occasional tragical-comical sketches such as a NATO summit proclaiming Woke War against the majority of the planet.

So when President Putin addresses the collective West he says, “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet”, in language plain enough to be understood by simpletons:

“They want to defeat us on the battlefield, well, let them try. Right now they only want to fight us to the last Ukrainian – and this is only a tragedy for the Ukrainian people. But they should know that, by and large, we haven’t really started anything yet.”

Escobar is either a Q-style true believing idiot or he’s being paid to write hopium for the deluded “alternatives” to keep them dozing peacefully while the New Normal gets normalized. His narrative is a superficial binary bedtime story of fumbling bad guys and triumphant heroes, trying to make us think we have an investment in the outcome.

He ignores the reality that Russia is just another globalist gangster state, dutifully following globalist policies. All we are watching is the controlled demolition of the old financial system and the forced introduction of the GR under the guise of a tokenist “war”.

All states are in effect ‘gangster’ states, it is just a feature of the human condition. Don’t like that – tough shit. That’s the reality. It’s just that some states are worse than others. The reality of doing nothing just leads to persons other than Voltaire and his suggestion that we should all give up politics and cultivate our gardens. Oh dear, if only!

But that’s only an option for the ideologically pure and, I would say, the already comfortable. I’m sure that you know those people who are above this hurly-burly regarding it with a detached contempt, but they are the most privileged group of all. I would advise that they stick to Voltaire.

Gref’s bank practically adopted Sputnik V as one of its own products. Sberbank employees were urged in May 2020 to participate in the drug’s earliest phases of testing, and the company later launched a marketing campaign aimed at convincing Russians that “normal life” would not return without mass vaccination. The bank even released a promotional video – complete with a wistful soundtrack and dramatic one-liners – called “SberVaccination: IT’S TIME!”

Hmm, lets see what you stated in your original post apart from the single quote without looking at the overall section from U.K Column 21.40-29.22.

Apart from the inane vacuous couple of lines immediately following the selective quote, you wrote ” His bizarre complaint is that the BBC are apparently ignoring the war;”.

If you had bothered to watch and listen, you have noted that both Brian Gerrish and his co presenter Mike Robinson had drawn attention to the fact that the war in the Ukraine was under a very small subsection relating to the proposal from the NATO/US/UK/City of London controlled Ukrainian Nazi regime to permit same sex marriages.

Furthermore, if you had been paying attention you would have
noticed why it has dropped below the radar for the UK government propaganda outlet, their proxy is losing the conflict and sustaining very heavy losses in manpower plus material.

Thanks to platforms such as U.K Column this fact on the ground in the Ukraine will not go unnoticed for those with eyes to see and ears to listen.

Gerrish starts with:

We’ve been talking about the failure of the BBC to report on Ukraine . . .

The first point is that the BBC’s coverage has very little relevance to anything, so it’s a bizarre lead to start with. Then they find some link to an LGB-whatever article so that they can segue to trans-whatever in the US Congress; and then they have some talking-head lined up to prattle on about wokeness. What has any of that got to do with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine?

Secondly, Gerrish has repetitively stated that “Russia is clearly winning” – as though it’s not even a debatable point. Similar statements have been issued by people like Scott Ritter and Douglas Macgregor; and again without any hint of debate.

With regard to the BBC’s coverage, go to the News homepage:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news

The menu items in order are:

  • War in Ukraine

Oh dear, if you look at the U.K. Column itinerary, which it lists on every recorded program, it states “ 21.40 – Why is the BBC Really Interested In In Ukraine? “

“ The first point is that the BBC’ s coverage has little relevance to anything, ..” It appears you fail to grasp that the Government controlled propaganda outlet is watched not only by many people in the U.K. but also around the world as supposedly a “ trusted “ and “ impartial “ source.

Therefore, it has very great relevance in controlling and shaping the public narrative about the Ukraine plus other issues. I can offer many many examples but here are 3 : the 1984 miners strike, the war in Iraq and the campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.

The reason they were talking about the silly stupid idiotic Professor waffling on about the definition of a pregnant woman was to demonstrate what the NATO/ US/ U.K./ City of London controlled Nazi Regime has in mind for the Ukraine to mould it to the “ values “ of the West.

Brian Gerrish, Mike Robinson pointed out the fact that the Russian Federation is winning in the S.M.O against the Ukrainian Nazi regime plus the whole of NATO because for many who get their information from the MSM plus some who rely on selective social media platforms, they are in denial about the reality in the Ukraine.

As to your assertion about the menu on the BBC news page in a small subsection it states “ Ukraine to consider legalising same sex marriage” . U.K. Column on the 13.07.2022 at 1.08.42 at 24.13 into the program clearly shows a page of this from a screenshot!

https://www.ukcolumn.org/video/uk-column-news-13th-july-2022

To complete the statement about “ ..those with eyes to see and ears to listen. “ is to engage the whole of your mind. Suggest you try and do this rather than flinging ad hominem like confetti and looking at the S. M.O like Alice in Wonderland !

In general, I don’t care one iota about what the BBC has to say about anything. Very occasionally it may carry a relevant article (e.g. see above re Vinnytsia), but apart from that, it’s obsolete. So if the UK Column sees its purpose as monitoring the BBC, then it’s also irrelevant.

Having watched the UK Column regularly several years ago, I was curious what it had to say about Ukraine. But I find under it’s heading for “Ukraine” that it’s actually just discussing the BBC and wokeism. Hence the statement:

What a pathetic fucking waste of space the UK Column has become!

” In general, I don’t care one iota what the BBC has to say about anything..”

It seems you continue to fail to grasp the most fundamental point. The BBC is one of the most powerful propaganda outlets in the world and it is very rarely held to account by the MSM .

However, UK Column does a sterling job of casting light on its Orwellian activities, which by the way Orwell along with JB Priestly worked at and described their nefarious activities.

” Having watched the UK Column..”

Well from the statement you made about recently, you haven’t followed it closely enough about the Ukraine otherwise you would have noticed it has run a long series of articles concerning the insidious propaganda strategies of the BBC both in the UK plus the Ukraine.

It has also highlighted the attempts by the Globalists to social engineer nation states.

When over the target, the flak is always the most intense.

HORSELOVER FAT aka PKD, alias Philip K Dick (the real deal, no forgeries) lived a few blocks from my “official” address of some years, one that I use as a wanderer’s epicenter, for Santa Ana, on Cypress ave. He lived there his later years, and died soon after he got his first big check of $50K for “Bladerunner”, at 408 E. Civic Center Dr. (My rollerblades have that film title insctibed, eponymously.)

The movie money enabled him to buy his 1st new car, at 53, and then he died there of a stroke, soon after. The great sci-fit film has a posthumous dedication in white on black at the end of the ending credits.

There is a Mexican church there, down Main Street, a few blocks the other side of Cypress, where I hear Mass many times for some 40 years, and after which the city is named, eponymously, in Spanish, St. Anne’s. It has a fanciful stained glass window on the side facing Borchard that is unfathomable in its beautiful meaning. I had a couple of “rites” there beside it with pastor Fr. Cirilo Flores, in the years before he was elevated suddenly.

The very Latin neighborhood is imbued, for me, with the dirt-poor plenipotentiary presence of PKD, and that still warms an already charming ‘hood.

Disneyland, the “real” one, is a five minute drive on the 5, from Dick’s last crib. They had added the Pirate Ride in the late ’60s. (I went our first time to Disneyland on Grand Opening Day 1955, at the rugged age of 3. I shed tears because they would only let me board just once on to Alice’s Magic Teacup Ride, and after an hour wait. That, and a lousy tshirt.)

Does Russia really want to win the war in Ukraine? One wonders why Russia’s Expeditionary Force in Ukraine (for that is all it is) is sufficient to win the this war? We know by now that the Russian elite is deeply split into two factions: one integrated to the West (comprador elite) and the other favouring the strengthening Russia’s independent capitalism. Russian foreign policy is shaped by the opposition and compromises between these two groups. That is the reason why it is so inconsistent and contradictory. Particularly in Ukraine, Russia tries to withstand Western challenges, but leaves the door ajar for possible accommodation. The Russian attempt to its national interests within the framework of the current world order, seems doomed to failure.

Turning back to the 2014 invasion by the Ukies which occasioned staunch resistance from the citizens of the Don Bass it would be true to say that Russia reluctantly gave support to the hastily formed local militias who had the temerity to beat off and defeat the Ukie forces, Russia gave some support but stopped the advance of the Lugansk and Donetsk militias into the Ukraine and initiated a truce. Leaders of the Donbas militias were supplemented by unofficial volunteers from Russia, but these were volunteers. Moreover, from summer 2014 Russian authorities have done their best to isolate the most belligerent elements among the rebels and compel them to leave the Don Bass. Some of the more independent (and leftist) militia leaders – Givi, Motorola, and most importantly Zakharchenko were assassinated by killed by Ukrainian task forces. (to which nobody believes among local militias).

In order to ingratiate themselves to the oligarchs and stopped the shelling of the Donbass, Putin has to give some bones to the oligarchs but not too much. The shelling of the Donbass, however, has still not ceased.

The expeditionary forces is still capturing small towns and villages but as for the larger cities, Kharkov, Zaporizhia and Kherson are still outside of the REF control. This after 6 months of siege and shelling. Pity the poor people of Donetsk who have never experienced a time when the have not been shelled.

Which raises the question again. Who exactly is calling the shots in Moscow. Does Putin really want to win this war, or is he simply trying to appease both his internal oligarchy and the west’s oligarchy? An open question.

“Does Russia really want to win the war in Ukraine?”

Classical answer: Russia does not start wars; Russia ends them.

Reminder 1: this is not a war but a Special Military Operation by a rather small force of Donbass militia and Russian auxiliaries. Since February they have completely Liberated the Donbass and Luhansk Republics, without Russia even breaking a sweat. About 1/5th of Ukraine’s former territory and 4/5ths of its former productive capacity has now returned to Mother Russia. Even the MSM are now changing their song from crowing “Ukraine Victory in Donbass” to apologizing, “I suppose there is an air of inevitability about Ukraine’s withdrawal”.

Reminder 2: The SMO will not stop until attains these stated objectives: Liberation of Donbass and Luhansk, De-nazification of Ukraine, and Disarmament of Ukraine.

Reminder 3: The SMO in Ukraine is only the first stage towards Russia’s real objective, No NATZO nukes East of Berlin. That’s when the real war may start — unless NATZO backs down and honours its promise to Gorbachev not to move East when Russia released control of its Western Ukraina.

I think MH17 was simply an attempt by U$A, Holland and Australia to smear Russia. Ukraine by then had already succumbed to the Biden/Nuland “cookie coup” and was merely the cats paw in a typical NATZO false flag operation.

From Wikipedia: Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down on July 17, 2014, in eastern Ukraine, where an armed conflict between Ukrainians and pro-Russian separatists was happening at the time. The aircraft was en route from Schiphol Holland to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. All 298 people on board, including many en route to Australia, were killed.

Militarily Ukrainian war ended on March 5. Russia won.

Ukraine was rendered unable to mount any strategic offensive according not only to Scott Ritter and other US and Russian analysts but according to Pentagon report published in March.

What it meant was that AFU was not and would’ve never been able to expel Russian and LDPR military from Ukraine by force. The number one reason for such assessment was annihilation of Ukrainian Navy and total Russian air supremacy that effectively prevents any significant concentration of AFU power at least 3 to 1 required advantage ratio to mount any meaningful offensive.

So far in this war AFU main tactic was reduced to some sort of guerrilla tactic, a hit and run of small special operations, attacking logistics, taking hostages of Ukrainian ethnic Russians as human shields, terrorizing civilians with cities by random bombardment and kill as many Russians as possible in ambushes including artillery ambushes. Unfortunately such tactics is very costly as for one Russian killed that way up to 10 Ukrainians die.

Some AFU commanders report 80% of unit losses without any direct enemy engagement. Slowness of Russian progress is mostly because broad dispersion of AFU along frontlines that requires tedious drone searches and one by one destruction by guided artillery like Krasnopol. According to AFU Russian fire up to 50,000 shells on AFU personnel a day. For comparison US expended total of 60,000 shells during entire Desert Storm operation in 1991.

Today Russia operates continuously over 1000 of small surveillance to big attack drones daily and completely controls all battlefields.

None of that guerrilla tactics is capable to retake one inch of Ukraine back under Kiev regime controlled territory.

But this is all NATO wants, delay acknowledging inevitable defeat prolong senseless pain and suffering while desperately inflict damage as main thrust of this confrontation is psychological warfare and destabilization of Russian economy in a attempt of regime change in Moscow.

So far NATO totally failed militarily and economically and westerners started to pay for it.

Russia oil and gas revenues doubled, Russian state budget surplus highest in history. The MOM inflation in May was 0%, in June they had deflation, prices fell 1% MOM. Gas prices in Russia dropped up to 10% in May and June. Russian central bank interest rate returned to pre war levels, Ruble from about 140 in March increased to about 55 to a dollar and is best performing world currency this year. according to Bloomberg. Over 100 countries refused to support anti Russia sanctions and trade using Petro-Rubles.

No need to list any economic metrics of western collapse as western belligerence against Russia horribly backfired.

“Under 80”? I just turned 70 (as young as can be still, younger than spring) and Vietnam was pretty gnarly, even if it wasn’t “real war”. I went to France, but skirmishes on the streets of “Southern California” were dense enough that it had my Marine boss, Beirut sniper (Lincoln Security) asking my sidekick Raphael twenty years later about my background, “Ed thinks you’ve been in combat.” I found that more amusing than the most outlandish of our “domestic wars”, on their best day, since I’d never left the beaches of Laguna, where Timothy Leary had lived at “Mystic Arts” ten years before, quite close by on PCH, dosing as many people as he could find, with all kinds of LSD black market hallucinogens, a la what then DCI Richard Helms (not on my short list of favorites, no way no how, as bad as Dulles or Sydney Gottlieb, by accounts) described them as, “We thought of LSD, in a way, the same way we thought of the bombs on Nagasaki and HIroshima, as a way to nuke the minds of dissidents so they would be easier to control.” (That’s a paraphrase, but a close gist of his actual words on that.) San Francisco found out all about that. (And Laguna Beach.)

I had an interesting back and forth on the street (front of a store) with a man I’d call a “suspected agent” one day in 2015, who said, “Yes! Leary talks all about that in his books, if you read them, and I have, but he said that the whole plan backfired on Helms and his CIA people, because it made so many of their targets simply much more thoughtful.” I answered, “Yeah, for the lucky ones, I know a few. But I also had schoolmates during those key years, some quite brilliant, who got permanently fried on that stuff, they were just never the same. Just look at Brian Wilson (Beach Boys front man, songwriter) he is completely absent from anything like the real universe, perma-fried.”

He was sent to try to persuade me to back off in my pestering the public with some of these questions, “Look, most people are just walking around looking for a place to take a warm shit.”

That’s typical CIA ideology, “Look, just let the folk be, while we herd them to the apparent slaughter, where else do they have to go, the road is straight and clear before us?” In so many subtexts, implied.

I shot back, “Yeah, that’s why I like France for that kind of thing so much more, maybe because you could never find a warm place, sometimes even in some great restaurants, you often had to go down some freezing hall and squat over some porcelain hole in the ground, so people there are reminded there about realities.” He didn’t know what to say, when I added, “They are SO much better at watching each other’s back, when it comes to government scams.”

I read a fascinating book about all that, the whole scene then in my “backyard”, in fact I actually know some of the people profiled in the book “Orange Sunshine: The Brotherhood of Eternal Love and its Quest to Spread Peace, Love, and LSD to the World”. (Nick Schou, edited by my ’60s ROTC schoolmate, David Talbot, if you can believe it, I wrote about it on other threads: I don’t know Talbot, although I shared a campus with him for 5 years, a time neatly bookended for us by the ’60s assassinations.)

What an outlandish and ultimately sad chronicle of all those types in Laguna Beach, where I knew at ground level some 40 years ago many of the crowd that “roamed the streets” literally on acid, in their dealings with what we called “The Brotherhood” simply, or known to the farflung annals, of those years, as “The Hippie Mafia”. No doubt it was a “colorful” time, but fastly rooted in government psyops and surveillance, from the very getgo. The book focuses its start there on John Griggs, “leader” of the The Brotherhood, who was a young fatality after a few years caused by very bad toxic acid. Timothy Leary told us all then, “John Griggs is the holiest man in America.” Wow, what a sales? I know any number of people who bought that kind of tripe from Trip Master Tim. Even then I thought there was something terribly wrong. With all that, and with him.

All about curious government control, as always, for spurious reasons posing as real (MKULTRA and Artichoke and Monarch, etc etc as code names). I’m glad those years are behind us. Leary was gone by the time I got there in ’77, having been “arrested” off Laguna Canyon Road in ’69 as he played his part in that deadly charade for PD, FBI, and CIA and so many other shadowy players in that bizarre psychodrama.

As one friend who owned, a piano tuner who owned his own store, right in the middle of town, off PCH, Lou once said to me, “The thing about acid is it’s a portal to the DMZ. The demilitarized zone of the spirit world, where the door is open. And anyone who takes it should ask himself, by WHOSE permission do I go there? And since God hasn’t given any of them that permission, apparently, they just might be on their own?” (And, of course, the Sydney Gottlieb CIA people relied on that.)

A poignant and pertinent question. But kids “just out having fun” back then put all kinds of things in their bodies, many of them driven to distraction by so many shady psyops all around, not very beknownst to them, if at all, often they thought it was a bad jacket to be worn, an “initiation” of some kind, or whatever. California was full of “that” and many lived to tell the tale.

But that “DMZ” was a term that came directly from General Westmoreland’s rice paddies of Vietnam, and many vets that I knew had used many such drugs -counterintuitively!- to prep themselves for physical battle, as was dramatized in movies then like “Apocalypse Now” and “Full Metal Jacket” and many others.

Between the drug experiences and the many unanswered questions about why we were there in Indochina, by 1988 S. Brian Willson (“Blood on the Tracks”) in his capacity as advocate attorney for vets, and a hard-bitten veteran himself, told us that 250,000 Vietnam soldiers returning here had taken their own lives. I questioned him after his UCLA talk about it (and he having just survived the amputation of both his legs by a Navy train that accelerated and ran over them a few months before) in disbelief at the number, and he told me “That’s actually a very conservative estimate, because many more have simply disappeared (e.g. “Kissing Trains” with John Lithgow as a PTSD crazed vet disappearing into the Pacific Northwest forest, only to be tracked and saved on the brink of “kissing a train” by his son).

So the soldiers, after ROTC I could have well been one, but for several 4F exemptions and expatriation, got a “double dose” of the DMZ, and quite a few didn’t make it back out. Of one, both, or either.

But back in that day, half century ago, I really do believe that there were opportunities enough to fight in a “real war”. Sometimes the combatants didn’t even need to leave their own sofas.

Serious. I truly think it depends more on the POV ~ not the provenance of the “actual” bullets and bombs.

But I do know some who went through things like the Blitz, courtesy of von Braun. The legendary crooner Tony Bennett, fought then in the Battle of the Bulge and said it was “like getting your own front row seat in Hell”.

But War seems, after further review, to be a wily thing, it can “pop up” anywhere, any time. I got to know a one-time mercenary just before Coronapalooza began. After a couple years off and on sharing our stories, he told me he had once signed on for a “soldier of fortune” tour long ago, but he got cold feet and backed out, last minute. His team leader said that when they all finished “over there” they’d come back and kill him. But turns out all of them died but one, on their misadventure.

He found out and visited the lone survivor, finding him in a rest home. He didn’t make it back either, after all. Just sat all day in bed, in a corner, staring straight ahead and babbling.

Look, who wins is decided in the script, not on the battlefield, if there even is a battlefield. The writers are leaving it open a) to increase interest in the audience, and b) to keep all options open so they can wrap it up in a moment if needed. “Oh no the Ukraine army just collapsed” or “oh my Russia are retreating” are both narratives that can be rolled out in an instant.

That was the original script – i.e. a fake war. And I think it was supposed to be decisive and fairly quick. Russia would become the occupying power in the east and south as shown below:

The eastern oblasts would “self-determine” to go to Russia, but the southern five (including Odesa) would be reserved for the “New Israel”; though they’d presumably come up with different a name. They would get the +$300bn for reconstruction only if they accept the terms of the deal. And Russia would be compensated through the hike in oil and gas prices. NATO would be seen to be ineffective and there would be a shift toward BRICS. All this is a central part of the Khazarian reset.

However, the script has been hacked by the Christian Zionists who want the current Israel to stay largely the way it is. The CZs include Pompeo and Pence; and it seems likely that their group is currently running the U.S. side of the operation. (This will be under some form of Continuity of Government procedure.) Hence, the training and equipment given over the last few years to Ukrainian special forces; and then the advanced weaponry over the last couple of months. Consequently, the war was switched from being fake to real. It seems that the Russians had not prepared for this, though they must have known about the possibility.

Harvard economist Michael Hudson on the evil of Debt Peonage:

“The Obama administration backed police breaking up the Occupy Wall Street encampments; and did everything possible to destroy awareness of the debt problems plaguing the U.S. and linked economies. Academic Orthodoxy also circled their wagons against the thought that debts needed to be written down to prevent economies from falling into depression.

“That neoliberal pro-creditor ethic is the root of today’s New Cold War. When President Biden describes this “Western” aim at “isolating China, Russia, India, Iran” and the remaining 4/5ths of the world who trade with China, Russia, India and Iran, he characterizes this New Cold War as an “existential struggle” between “Democracy” and “Autocracy.” But by “Democracy” he means Oligarchy. And by “Autocracy” he means a government strong enough to thwart financial Oligarchy from taking over society. The current Western ideal is to make the remaining 4/5th of the world look like Boris Yeltsin’s Russia, where Western neoliberals had a free hand in stripping away all public ownership of land, mineral rights and basic public utilities.”

I look forward to seeing Putin (or his successor) bring Russia’s Big Pharma to heel for the good of his country. Otherwise sleeping cells of Western Debt Cancer will grow to destroy this 20 year revival of Russian power and prosperity under Putin and fellow patriots.

Obama may have tried to destroy awareness of the debt problems plaguing the US, but lately I cannot help but wonder why our owners ever let Bernie Sanders get as far as he did. Sanders did indeed make the debt problems visible, and in some ways, as many have said before, he took over that mantle from Occupy. But why did he get as far as he did? Why was he allowed to start awakening the American populace to the truth of oligarchic rule in the US? Was that merely a grand experiment? A test, if you will, of just how far those ideas might go? And those ideas did indeed cross the partisan line many times, which could put a kink in the plans of the owners if allowed to go too far.

But Sanders then fully capitulated, and all that talk of debt problems goes away, while those who held out hope that people would wake up and attempt to do something about it were in essence told their awareness of those issues means squat.

This may be a bit off topic but not really. I was a Sanders supporter, donated and bought the damned t shirts too. I still have them but no longer wear them. An experiment by our owners to see how awake people were, and just what topics might cross the partisan barrier sounds more and more what he was really about to me. The one thing that campaign did seem to accomplish is to cement the almost total lack of faith in voting changing one damned thing, at least for some.

So while Obama may have attempted to shut down that debt discussion, that wasn’t a big success for him, and maybe it wasn’t supposed to be. And of course now, in the age of covidiocy, our owners do not give one shit whether people are aware of the extent of the debt bubble, as long as we are all fearful and pissed off at each other all the time, they need not worry themselves we will wake up en masse any time soon. As for the partisan divide, that is now fully recovered from whatever small dent Sanders and his campaign may have put in it, especially after Trump, which I firmly believe was also part of the plan.

As for Putin destroying the global rule of oligarchs, I liken that to the idea Bernie Sanders was gonna win the presidency and put a spoke in the wheels of the debt oligarchy for real. Never gonna happen, even if that ever truly was his desire, which is certainly questionable.

Putin is one of them. He’s playing the role he was given. He’s a young global leader working in the covenant. His job is to oppose. That’s the religion of the cross; playing both sides, order and chaos who appear to oppose each other, but are on the same side.
That’s how ‘order out of chaos‘ works. They pretend to ‘oppose’ each other, creating the chaos. Then, ‘order’ is applied to the innocent citizens because of ‘them’.
For example, ‘because of Putin, we have to put you on programmable currency and rob you of energy by sanctioning them. Its the only way we can beat Putin’.
Or, ‘because of terrorists in the middle east, we have to put security checkpoints on your right to travel using airports’. Meanwhile, the terrorists and the government are working together.
One side gives the other side the excuses to oppress their people and start manufactured wars that result in a handful of elites gaining more wealth and resources at our expense.

In Putin’s case, he’s providing the opposition so that Europeans can be crushed into accepting vaccine passports, mandatory jabs, connection to the internet of bodies and movement to a programmable currency. They’ll do this by making you accept those things in order to get the things you need to survive, such as food and energy. ‘Things are bad, but if you take this jab it will all go away’.

Instead of picking sides, realize that both sides are controlled by the same people and point the fingers at them.

…- No indeed, he was not, Sophie – he would have been too old… – However there *Is* excellent circumstantial evidence given both by the repeated assertions of Herr Schwab and by the source cited in my reply to Denny Kirk, just below, that he was a member of its forerunner, the ‘Global Leaders of Tomorrow’ initiative (- Reformed 2003 as the ‘Forum of Young Global Leaders)… – He would have been 39 at the time of his presumed induction in the spring of 1992, per the source I cited to Denny…

…- Additionally, Wikispooks has this much to say:…

“Vladimir Putin

In 2017 Klaus Schwab claimed that Vladimir Putin was a member of the program,[7] something he repeated in a 2019 talk with Carlos Alvarado Quesada. This presumably happened during his St. Petersburg years in the 1990s[8]. This is not confirmed from other sources. In January 2021, Putin presented a keynote address at the World Economic Forum, where he recalled how he first met Schwab in 1992 and since then had regularly attended events organised by the WEF.[9][10] The WEF removed their page of Putin following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[11]

“In France, the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum held in Davos is too often mistakenly perceived as the place where world leaders secretly decide our future. For a lot of people in my country, Davos seems to embody the “evil capitalists”. This is particularly true in French academia. So much so that, when I was applying for my full professorship, I was strongly advised to hide that the Forum made me a Young Global Leader a couple of months earlier. In many countries this honor would have helped me get the job. Not in France.”

RESURGENCE OF NAZISM
Nazism world takeover, instead of heil-hitler it’s jab or no privilege, job, school, pension or government basic services. Governments are placing themselves above God making health mandates obligatory to remain part of society.

Even the almighty Jehovah God gives every living human being the free will to choose whether to serve him or not as independent free agents. God allows each individual to make their personal health decision, the almighty only gives general health recommendations and then says ” good health to you” Acts 15:29 says ” to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from what is strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you carefully keep yourselves from these things, you will prosper. Good health to you!”. Jehovah provides the rain and sunshine to those that disobey him as Jesus said- ” so that you may prove yourselves sons of your Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good and makes it rain on both the righteous and the unrighteous makes the sun shine and provides rain to the good and to the wicked” Matthew 5:45.

Nazi governments today are placing themselves above God and want to decide who deserves to live and who doesn’t deserve basic human services. They claim to know better than God and want absolute control over people lives, Nazis of today would stop the sun from shining if they could on people they term as undesirables. Basically they want God’s worship or the adoration of all their subjects and are willing to enforce it with severe penalties by depriving them of their God given right to live. Judgement of the sheep and goats belongs to God’s appointed world ruler Jesus Christ.

This jabs are leading to the complete control of this world by the political system run by Satan.”We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one”, 1 John 5:19.

Ok the beast 666 as a symbol of its defining attributes.

The number six implies imperfection. Often, numbers are used as symbols in the Bible. Seven typically represents completeness or perfection. Six, being one short of seven, can denote something incomplete or flawed in God’s eyes, and it can be associated with God’s enemies.​—1 Chronicles 20:6; Daniel 3:1.

Three times for emphasis. The Bible sometimes stresses a matter by stating it three times. (Revelation 4:8; 8:​13) So the name 666 powerfully emphasizes that God views human political systems as gross failures. They have been unable to bring lasting peace and security​—things that only God’s Kingdom will achieve.

The mark of the beast

The Bible says that people receive “the mark of the wild beast” because they follow it “with admiration,” to the point of worshipping it. (Revelation 13:​3, 4; 16:2) They do this by giving worshipful honor to their country, its symbols, or its military might. As The Encyclopedia of Religion states: “Nationalism has become a dominant form of religion in the modern world.” * Nazism world takeover,instead of heil-hitler it’s jab or no privilege, job, school, pension or government basic services.

How is the mark of the beast placed on someone’s right hand or forehead? (Revelation 13:16) Regarding his commands to the nation of Israel, God said: “Bind them as a reminder on your hand, and they should be like a headband on your forehead.” (Deuteronomy 11:18) This meant, not that the Israelites were to mark their literal hands and foreheads, but that God’s words would guide all their actions and thoughts. Likewise, rather than being something literal such as a 666 tattoo, the mark of the beast symbolically identifies those who let the political system rule their lives. Those with the mark of the beast place themselves in opposition to God.​—Revelation 14:​9, 10; 19:19

The Ukrainians are the poorest country in Europe, have no airforce and an under-trained, pathetic army that the Donbass militias put to flight in 2014.

What’s weather on your planet.Because here on earth reality is completely different from your nonsense.

On February 24, 2022 NATO equipped and trained for seven years by US commandos, and trainers from US, Germany, Canada, UK, Ukrainian Army was third largest in size, training and military capability among all NATO countries just after US and Turkey. AFU was best trained according to military analysts.

Today with 700,000+ force it is biggest army, even bigger than US.(all from MSM sources).

Ukrainians were not weak in February. They were simply tragically stupid as Zelensky gang and infiltrated by CIA Ukrainian General Staff listened to their NATO handlers’ strategy to send Ukrainians to slaughter and that resulted already in late June with 100,000+ dead and MIA and 250,000+ wounded or captured best Ukrainian soldiers and commanders.

After just one week AFU lost all the strategic offensive capabilities. The war from military point of view was over but instead of quick less painful acknowledgment of defeat, Zelensky was ordered to extend pain and scale of inevitable agony, not only agony of formerly formidable AFU but also Ukrainian state itself.

But don’t take my word for it. Listen to a former US Marine intelligence officer Scott Ritter and many US military analysts or read Pentagon reports from February and March 2022 that corroborate the same conclusion.

The very strong initially 260,000 of AFU with 170 fighter jets and 150 of attack and transport helicopters was utterly defeated by mere 190,000 of Russian intervention force in about one week.

Ukraine, amid staggering loss of soldiers’ lives is now conducting sixth general mobilization (all men under 65) , now including cripple and women. Openly Ukrainian commanders complain of up to 80% of unit personnel losses in last three months, most died and never saw enemy with their own eyes.

Russians had no mobilizations as they fight using professional contract soldiers/paid military volunteers units from Russia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Chechnya and Armenia as well as Wagner Group of mercenaries who fought before in MENA.

Purely equipped LDPR militia, that faced in February 2022 130,000 strong AFU Donbas group had only 40,000 soldiers, 60,000 after one partial mobilization in March. AFU did not take even one inch of territory from LDPR in last 5 months. Instead LPR was completely liberated while DPR that in February 2022 controlled 35% of their territories now they control 65%.

On other fronts despite numerous counteroffensives AFU did not push Russians one inch back, even in Kharkov area. Ukrainians did not even take back less than kilometer by kilometer size snake island after Russian withdrew as a result of Russian army taking over better positions on strategic peninsula south of Nikolaev.

For those who ignorantly think that Russians are bogged down Ukraine, consult western military experts who say that Russia needed 1,000,000 army to invade and take over Ukraine in ten days. Soviets took more than two months with 1,500,000 army to liberate Ukraine in1944.

This is not invasion although Russians can mobilize 2,000,000+ army and do it. It is Special military-police anti-Nazi operation to cleanse terrorists from Ukraine.

The Ukrainian war, NATO-Russia proxy war, is in fact a side show to real brutal economic war waged by US neocons driven NATO to crash Russian economy and destroy Russia as a state. And even that war ended up in utter western defeat, making Ukrainian deaths pointless and tragic, and the west poorer.

Criminal Zelensky and ignorant people like yourself should stop living their psychotic delusions of Russian defeat as they only contribute to senseless slaughter of Ukrainians and demise of western economies.

The President of the Russian Federation wishes AstraZeneca – a company with documented links to eugenicists – success not only in the Russian market, but also in global markets and hopes that in (2021) conditions will be favourable for the company in solving the problems that THEY are talking about (behind closed doors).

Which problems? A virus? Or overpopulation?

Unfortunately, Western pharma is no better. Local doctors are also ‘wined-and-dined’ by Big Pharma sales reps (in the form of ‘presentations’ with plenty of good food laid on). And in return, they know exactly which ‘treatment’ to offer the next 5-minutes-allotted-patient through the door

There was a good documentary exploring that aspect of medical practice, though I can’t quite recall its name

“First of all: At the very least Putin deserves a golf clap for saying rude things about Big Pharma. No one loses points for doing that. So we salute you, Vladimir Putin. Keep it up.

At the same time: talk is cheap.”

TALK IS NOT CHEAP. JUST ASK JFK & RFK (and MLK etc etc).

They all paid with their life’s blood, and not in installments, neither.

Mostly for their dreams, and the talk thereof, not so very much for what they actually did. Putin to my mind, then, is already a Khonquering Khan à la Genghis, just for firing that symbolic shot — a significant “nyet” heard ’round the Imperial galaxy — across the bow of the Drug Lords.

Let’s hope grace prevails to take it far. Slava Bogu, Vlad!

Off topic perhaps but I see that Stewart Lee, shill for covid and polluter of Mark E Smith’s reputation, has sunk lower than I thought:

It seems our Stew has constructed some “pedal bin” to serve as his own loudly advertised Room 101. And poor old G Linehan is assigned therein. Here take a look at his list – and marvel at the smug self-satisfaction of one who would assemble such a list and even go public with it! (You need to scroll down near the bottom.) 

https://www.stewartlee.co.uk/2022/01/from-the-metro-lib-elite-desk-of-stewart-lee-january-2022/

Note inclusion of Eric Clapton and Van Morrison. Gosh, I wonder why?

Perhaps even more interesting is his following list: “IN OUR COVID ERA LAMENTATIONS 2021”
You’d think that might be of folk whose death the media assigned to covid. Not at all. But Stew’s name for the list seems to provide such a link.

Good Lord, how ‘radical’ is Stewart? Look at how fake he really is…and always was in hindsight.
I believe he will lose most of his fans after he performs his next tour to his vaccinated only Guardian readers collective. His remaining unvaxxed fans will desert him now because he is an exposed WEF wanker like Bono…and his vaxxed fans will soon be too ill or too dead to attend.
His list of ‘pedal bin people’ – so funny! – includes Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and Jaz Colman from Killing Joke – all grouped together – three real artists who have had the balls to call out the scam on record.
It’s all out in the open now, on his very own website, that Stewart has decided to the official ‘radical alternative comedian of the New Normals’. Greta is on his good list!.
Bill Hicks – a real comedian – used to joke about ‘what artist wants his fucking audience dead?’, referring to the 1990 Judas Priest trial….well, we can now answer that….Stewart Lee.
Goodbye Stewart, and all your previous concert DVDs will be flying into the fucking outside bin, never mind the pedal bin, so you can forget worrying about how to shill your product, like you always do after your gig. Nobody will want it.

Scary indeed to even roll your eyes over it, let alone read it. One still tends to think that Russia exists as an alternative to the world evil, though it does sound naive, or at least as a moral alternative to the West [ Putin propagates such iconic cliches and slogans with success]. All untrue. Russia is a leader of world ”progress”, a ruthless pall to China and a believer in the religion of social engineering of their populace.

Seeing faces of gref and peskov along with their turn-coat ex-KGB nachalstvo [ try and set them next to the face of Tolstoy or Lermontov ] one does not wonder that the people there do not want to bring children to the world, their death rate is so high [ the highest in the postwar period of over – sic! – 70 years ], life expectancy so low, cancer prevalence one of the highest on the globe, their suicide rate so high [ in the post-perestroika decade of Gorbatchev, Chubais, Gaidar and Yeltsin many high KGB and CPSU members were simply firing bullets into their own bodies, in brave act of refusal and disagreement], and their drinking so heavy – truth is hard to bear, observed Nietzsche- and intransigent.

To understand this situation better you might want to keep an eye on the “Uber papers”, a major story that the Guardian proper has been running. “What have taxis got to do with pharmaceuticals?”, you might ask. The answer is corporate and political lobbying — wholesale corporate and political lobbying on a scale that none of us can really quite get our heads around. The techniques used are similar to those used by political campaigns, they’re wide ranging and appear to be universally used in situations where deep pockets come up against political or social pushback. In a sense Putin is like you or I, ordinary people who are a bit behind the curve who have a feeling that something’s up but can’t quite put their finger on it. (Pharma’s sales ventures in Russia is “just another market” — compared to the marketing deluge we get in the US its probably very small scale because their market is so much smaller)(economy’s the size of Texas)

What’s vitally important for us all to understand is the what, why and how all this works because its used by deep pockets to drive ‘the herd’ (that’s us, of course) in a particular direction, be it for political or corporate goals (which all too often these days seem to be the same thing). Using what we know so far…..well, suffice to say that nothing can be taken at face value, even this comment. We’re so screwed…..

The empire’s foundations are built on monetarist sand which makes the entire edifice a bit shaky. Their leverage is credit and like all of us individuals we’re supposed to be slaves to our credit rating — we’re supposed to spend our lives nurturing that number because it dictated everything we can do. Except it doesn’t. If you’re debt free and have no need for credit then it doesn’t matter whether your credit rating is stellar or in the toilet (same if you’re broke). Now imagine this on an international scale and ponder the effort that was made to cause Russia to ‘default’ on bond payments. Except that Russia isn’t in hock up to its eyeballs, hence the need to put up trade barriers and sanctions. The same has been going on with China, a much larger economy that also isn’t playing the game (i.e. isn’t owned by the global banking system).

I remarked some years ago when we started seriously abusing our soft power that this would end badly. Soft power only works when you don’t use it that much. Years of sanctions have telegraphed our intentions well in advance so when the time came that Russia finally said “Nyet!” we were left with a bit of a problem. We tried to crash their economy but instead seem to be taking down Europe’s.

Anyway, we’re going to have to see how this all works out. As for the topic of the article in general I think that Russia’s a dead market as far as western pharma is concerned (and in doing so its probably lost the Chinese and Indian markets and possibly a whole bunch of smaller nations). Not a big deal as far as I’m concerned — the remedies they peddle are for the most part dubiously effective and mind numbingly expensive (they might work a bit but the side effects and potential problems suggest that they’re not so much cures as near death experiences).

Which is why the WEF plans it to be the new economic hub in the Great Reset.

It used to be the case that decent laws were intended to last for a very long time, but nowadays laws are changed so arbitrarily and whimsically to suit whomever owns the current Supreme Court or its equivalent, that we might as well just make up our own laws, based on common sense, and live by them, regardless of what the professional criminals in power would like us to do.

Governments, like the populace that peoples them, grow at different speeds, in different ways.

(So there’s that: some trade-off “devoutly to be wished”)

Only the most prominently pronounced pothead?! Tandyn Allmer (“Along Comes Mary” and best bro’ of the perma~fried Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, curator of the “Wilsonverse”) !?

Besides, as many marvels as be there wrapped within the cannabis leaf, Russkys may know better than U.S. just how manipulated the maryjane market, and the merchandise: by Mafia, USA Inc. (I know, I know, what’s the diff) and all kinds of middlemen. Just in my town of Costa Mesa alone there are all kinds of pot shops raided early and often by –not FBI, apparently– but local PD that are after them for all kinds of spurious practices, not all the old obvious ones, but new generation, and most alarmingly, a glaring lack of standards in provenance and quality, etc etc etc etc. As bad as bathtub booze in bootleg years, when hooch was “often enough” fatal.

The shops are shocking crime magnets, and although it makes sense that non-medical pot was de-criminalized here 6 years ago (California), it is still quite far from being a friendly, safe industry. Also, as usual, it’s used as a double-edged sword by Intel, just horrible. Endless, bottomless intrigue surrounds it, and it is used as a weapon in $o many many ways by TPTSB (Powers That Shouldn’t Be).

In the Russian language they even coined a unique phrase : Добровольнопринудительная вакцинация, i.e. oxymoron [ like wooden iron ]. They also devised a whole mini lingua franca to talk critically about vaccination as officially it was impossible/forbidden.

Obviously there is an entire system of open and subtle coercion that makes vaccination obligatory. They are masters of social engineering. And evil with their claim that vaccination is not mandatory [ Putin’s notorious evil claim, repeated in the face of all Russians, is an Olympian laughter].

They must have copied to the iota from the English woman Ann Something PhD, who created the UK strategy of behavioral social engineering for the Covid scheme and advised the UK gov.
Forgot her name, apparently herself somehow related to ”communism”, again I do not remember the details, but they exist somewhere. Her book/dissertation on which UK based their thing must be on the tables of all who are in charge of Covid coercion strategy in Russia.
Johnson’s ”in this together” also turned out to be an oxymoron, though not in language but post-factum, as they were not in this together at all. They were partying when you were muzzled.

It wasn’t an argument. It was just a thumb. Down. Like Freud’s cigar, sometimes it just is what it is. A thumb. Downward pointing. God knows that it is that. Nothing more. Enjoy.

Thomas, sorry

The vaxx has NOT been “mandatory in Russia for more than a year.”

Nov 2021: Putin urges vaxx, no mandate.
 https://medicalxpress.com/news/2021-11-putin-urges-russia-covid-jabs.html
In other coverage, 12 Russian regions mandate the vaxx for over-60s– also in Nov 2021.

 & only 40% vaxxed The opposition to QR codes comes as wider anti-vaccination sentiment across the country appears to be falling. Some 36% of Russians said they were outright opposed to getting vaccinated — down from more than 50% in September and a high of 61% recorded in April.

Can you trust Russian statistics?
Rhetorical question.
I suggest looking at the world corruption listing, Russia’s position there. And a list of just a handful countries behind Russia, and what countries are there behind Russia, i.e. what ”royal” club Russia, once a giant, belongs to corruption-wise nowadays.
I was tempted to copy and paste here the countries behind Russia to make the truth out. And ”out” it is indeed.
Lesson for the tough only.
Someone worked hard to make Russia what it became.

We have at least as much corruption, here in the US, as in Russia. Only we don’t call it corruption. We call it lobbying.

I didn’t even have to get past the 1st paragraph ..

is Vladimir Putin preparing to cleanse Russia of Big Pharma shills (his entire cabinet)? Some seem to think so and there is certainly evidence that some kind of anti-shill crackdown is coming.

Didnt you see all this nonsense with Q.>?- thoses under the Trump enchantment some still very under it and didn’t he TRUMP say big pharma was out to get him back in 2018.
He was about to make some big changes.

Same psyop used all over mostly aimed at the underground media then alt media buys it and sells it on if it catches then it ends up being watered down on mainstream news like U.K column or Alex Jones or them types.

There are more good people than bad. The wizards and warlocks (inside term) will not allow another Satanic Evil POS control our country. Realize Soros, Clintons, Obama, Putin, etc. are all controlled by 3 families (the 4th was removed post Trump’s victory).

This all would appear to be more about Russian sovereignty (and its rubles) than putinisms.

Although there are countless who group here and who would reframe it as just Czar Vlad, the puppet. And why can’t there be some of both, in the mix? There is a lot of shallow binary analysis on the threads, which gives the lie to all the frumious bandersnatches who flock to put down putin, pompously, or putzily. You know “WHO” U R! LOL

Good to hear. But maybe Vladimir Vladimirovitch should start looking at his very own Gamaleya Center, inventors of the Sputnik vaccines. He might ask himself if its directors and eminent researchers have Russians’ and Russia’s interest as their sole focus. Or not.

Point taken. It’$ a tangled web, but those issues may also be subsumed under sovereignty issues. It is not one beast, but a global circus. And more than 3 rings, but yes, more than many others, one ring master is yet accountable.

Goes with the territory. Yet: Anna Netrebko likes Vlad, she the working class close tovarisch of the late great D. Hvorostovsky (who beat out our man Bryn Terfel, with whom we sang Brahms in Cardiff, in their early years world singoff; two shockingly great voices, and yet I may now see, or hear, why, possibly, that Russky was the winner) and was willing, like Djokovic, to get herself banned by USA Inc — in her case just the other day, by the Met Opera in NYC.

So, once again, there’s that. To my ears. a great reference.

Putin speaks many reasoned arguments that shine, relative to western narrative manipulations fronting for economic & military coercion – with notable exceptions of RF allegiance to biotech and AI-robotic sectors. That these are core globalist trojans suggests either the current drama is a means to an end for such agenda – or that Putin represents a movement to break free from the Western global monopolism.
Is this merely a Mafia turf war, or steps towards restoring a basis for international relationships in law – or both? – because the breaking out of such an oppressive hegemony opens all kinds of movement in a very charged world. Change is not a linear process but unfolds as steps or intervals within the timeline consciousness or gestalt of accepted definitions and beliefs.

If we look outside without looking within, we become conditioned & tooled by the results of filtering rules of unconscious definitions and beliefs – that are masked over and contained by narrative identity derived from family, culture, religion and state. The technocratic transhumanism seeks to destroy or break down such identity to a systemic control of conflict or risk management, relative to the insiders of such a mindset. Putin’s RF holds gender, family and even religion as human realities as long as these are not set against the state.
While academics or anarchists may argue against any ‘state’ – the human family situation is of a broken & plundered ex Soviet Russia regaining significant process or restructuring despite oligarchic corruptions and a relentless broad spectrum attack from its ‘Western partners’. It is the demeanour of Putin and Lavrov in refusing to be baited by such an insanity that exemplifies a Spirit of workability not just for survival, but as a basis from which to live.

Workability applies to a functional structure such as a bridge – but is not applied as the litmus test for ‘medical’ systems, models or ideologies, as well as other ‘corporate & gov driven ‘science’. Unless of course destruction is the goal, but how workable is that as a basis to live from?

Unfortunately, “international relationships in law,” just like ‘rule-based international order,’ is merely another euphemism for globalist technocracy. Who, after all, will make these laws and rules? Not the people! And who will enforce them? The UN? The WEF? The IMF? Nobody elects them, do they! But if you condition enough people to believe that the only alternative to perpetual (Illuminati-initiated) warfare is globalist dictatorship, a fair percentage of them might go along with it.

In terms of legal adjudication, my guess is it would be set up like trade agreements with a mix of stake-holder and “civil society” tribunals. Of course, the selection process will come from the power brokers (doubt the tribunal members will have equal weight in judgement). The UN is an example of how they work through this with the Security Council having ultimate veto power – that is the permanent members (Russia, US, China, UK and France). Some variation, but for sure this will not be a people’s tribunal.

“Who, after all, will make these laws and rules? Not the people! And who will enforce them?”

I think this is a relevant quote from a member of Les Gilets Jaunes movement in a recent book:

Yellow Vest: “The government doesn’t know what to do because, they see that Les Gilets Jaunes continue despite so much repression. We will not stop until we get the right to citizen-initiated referendums, the end to corporate tax evasion and a rule of social justice so that people can live decently.” — Ramzin Mazaheri, Frances Yellow Vests: Western Repression of the Wests Best Values.

Intelligence from the real grassroots, upward.

Rather than what it has always been thus far, the carefully guarded Fabergé Egg (of that Golden Goose) ~ viciously guarded ~ as the usurped property of the few. Downward.

Networked and Privatized Intelligence, carefully guarded secrets of the oligarchs, the Usurping Class.

Until we have a Native Intelligence Agency, the only democracy that we’ll ever git ~ that most precious quantum of commodity ~ will always be “their” sick theatre, staged opulently for us, or to distract us. The Theatre State. Fabergé Eggs. Aka, “Goose Eggs”. Zeros!

As far as their Field of Dreams goes, I offer my native intelligence mantra (cue voice over by James Earl Jones):

“IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL LEAVE.”

(Don’t expect an even playing field for that one, Bubba! Never for a moment, not since the 16th Century of Walshingham and his Brit Monarch…)

That is the only way to exorcise the more/most deadly spooks. The kinds that kill Kennedys and Kings. Or all our better leaders.

“WHEN YOU’RE FAR FROM HOME, AND YOU’RE ALL ALONE, WHO YOU GONNA CALL?”

Binra, you ask Is this merely a Mafia turf war, or steps towards restoring a basis for international relationships in law – or both?

I don’t know, but in either case all evidence points to the goal of killing much of the population and enslaving the rest.

If the Russian hierarchy seeks to strengthen Russia in competition against the West WHY OH WHY would they push the vaxx. They are already under-populated.

Russia and China are pushing their Civil Defense against Bio-Warfare because they know Covid-19 is a U$ Bio-weapon. As you say, Russia is already under-populated. But when the EU$A finally manage to produce a really lethal virus weapon, Russia would become even more under-populated.

Hence a 3-prong strategy by Russia and China:

  1. Pretend to be taken in by the Con-19 $cam.
  2. Prepare a Civil Defense System against Bio-warfare
  3. Make money by marketing vaccines and protective gear
  4. Most important: call for a UN Meeting on Bio-Warfare, with special reference to the extraordinary number of U$ Bio-Warfare Labs.

The threat from Biological warfare is at least as great as the threat from Nuclear warfare.

NickM, A country and leader who pushes sick-making, death-dealing vaxxes CANNOT be trying to make the country or the citizens who form it stronger.

Ah– the vaxx is sterilizing too if one takes cognizance of recent birthrates.

We already HAVE the biological warfare, and it is abetted by our govts– including the Russian govt.

Is it possible you answered the question yourself, in your last sentence?
I think it is possible that people got suckered by the propaganda, why should Pooty-Poot be any different?
On that score, my opinion is that Pooty-Poot is human, and, thus, subject to the same impulses as we are. While I don’t believe psychology or psychiatry should be recognized as science, or given any kind of validity, mental illness is real and so is humans being the product of their experiences.
That is to say, in large part, he just wants to be one of the boys, in their club.
That’s my two-cents: he’s a hurt little boy who doesn’t understand why they won’t let him in the club, why the world doesn’t love him.
It’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

That IS the stunningly simple contrast, in a nutshell. Distilled:

“Putin speaks many reasoned arguments that shine, relative to western narrative manipulations fronting for economic & military coercion – ….”

Except:”manipulations” is too kind a replacement word for “torture”. (I mention that simply because it is most, more, significant in framing the contrast.)
