It seems QR codes will soon be back in vogue in Russia.
The Ministry of Digital Development, together with the FSB, will submit to the Russian government by May 1 a draft decree allowing the use of a digital identity card on smartphones instead of [an internal] passport in a number of everyday situations.
The proposal was supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.
“Please, the sooner the better (…) Of course, such services are in high demand, and you just need to speed up their implementation. Please prepare these projects,” Putin said at a meeting with members of the government, responding to the proposal of the head of the Ministry of Digital Development, Maksut Shadayev.
The new form of ID will serve as a QR-coded digital copy of a pre-existing domestic passport. (Russia issues internal passports to citizens, which are used for accessing state services, opening bank accounts, etc.)
Shadayev promised there were no plans to “cancel the [paper] passport.”
If everything goes according to plan, the introduction of digital IDs in Russia will coincide with the launch of the safe and convenient digital ruble, which is expected to enter circulation in the coming months.
We must reemphasize that digital identity cards are outrageously safe and convenient; they will never replace paper IDs, ever, and they will never be used to usher in a soul-crushing digital Panpoopticon.
Riley Waggaman is your humble Moscow correspondent. He worked for RT, Press TV, Russia Insider, yadda yadda. In his youth, he attended a White House lawn party where he asked Barack Obama if imprisoned whistleblower Bradley Manning (Chelsea was still a boy back then) “had a good Easter.” Good times good times.

Yeah, you ran something like this story before & when I checked it out the ID cards were for increased security at military & industrial sites.
I’m not going to bother to check this time.
When I first saw the abbreviation I thought of AC/DC.
You know, “play both side”.
I thought That CBDC was the QWERTY+ variation of ‘playing both sides”.
It’s worth pointing out that the digital rouble will be gold-backed!
“CBDC is the death throw of fiat currency.”
I am looking for that comment and article from one of (I believe) Michael Hudson’s articles.
Has anyone else seen that above comment?
The term is death throe. Not throw.
Hey! I played baseball and I throw…
but you are correct.
The downvote; CBDC is not that statement?
Most countries have or will have some form of “digital control” – why should Russia be an exception? Or is this article more of a “hate Russia piece”?
Where I live (an excellent country in the not so excellent EU) for many, many years we have ID cards containing fingerprints, photos, etc. .. these have recently been “digitalized”. Great idea! Also QR-coding for private houses/homes and other items.
We have never found any of this “intrusive” – but the police probably find it useful for tracking down criminals.
We have never found this “intrusive” … but relax digitalisation is happening in every country, nothing will stop it so look for the positive benefits.
Got it. You are always wearing a mask, got all the booster shots, track your wife and all your children with smart devices and chip your grandmother for her own sake, and never found it intrusive but beneficial for your common core Gulag camp.
You poor disenfranchised phuk.
Shock doctrine, terror, and torture strategy- tension-release, tension-release, etc.; all the easier to roll out the biosecurity prison and control grid when people breathe a sigh of relief that the worst is over (until the next round).Here’s How the U.S. Government Is Tracking the Unvaccinatedhttps://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/government-tracking-unvaccinated-icd-codes-cola/
By any chance, are there people in Russia who think digital ID is the bee’s knees, something any self-respecting ‘modern’ country must have?
Who knows? But perhaps the Russians will draw the line at having 15 minute towns/cities as planned for the UK? Glass house and stones?
Edward Snowden and Julian Assange anybody?
Hollywood liberal so wants to sell more arms quicker:
Sean Penn should take his own life if he feels shame.
Is he aware at all at what the Donbass has been through?
I regret to announce that the White Russian site, Vineyard of The Saker, has ceased activity (though it will be preserved in Archive), The Saker was one of the last remaining outposts of that Christian Left which used to be so prominent in post-War socialist Europe; especially in the 1950-1960s Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. The gradual withering away of the Left — especially the Christian Left — has made today’s world a much more unpleasant and dangerous place. As witnessed in today’s Saker:
“We should not kid ourselves, this war [Russia’s SMO in Ukraine] is not, repeat, NOT about the Ukraine or even the future of the EU. This is a war which will decide whether the Anglo-Zionists will take full control of our planet or whether the last empire in history will be replaced by a Multi-polar, Multi-political international order, regulated by the Rule of Law.”
The Saker, 14 February 2023
No sympathy at all. See here:
This “Saker” is in the same covid shilling category as the spook infested WSWS, bravely battling against the jolly rude “zealous anti-vaxxers”, the “anti-COVID-Crusaders”, the “the Q-Anon and Alt-Right websites”, and, in agreement with fellow covid whoremonger Moon of Alabama, those “unable to accept the facts”.
These obnoxious entirely plastic dissenters can all go back to the slimy belly of the hydra they all serve.
PS: I see that, as far as I could determine, the last of the Saker’s covid related articles which he actually permitted comments on attracted no less than 587 comments. Compare with the paltry trickle he gets now. Maybe that’s why this viral hack has stopped? The WSWS have similarly experienced an exodus of commenters. I’m proud to announce that they banned me. Hopefully they too will get dumped as the hydra considers hatching more serpents for a new generation of not-yet-rumbled deceivers.
We should be careful about labelling site owners for single opinions.
Saker had a point as both the vaxxers and non-vaxxers were full of wrong bs. “You will die in bundles within 2 years if you get it, etc”, it didnt happen.
Plus it was dangerous and at that time very sensitive to any site to publish negative about the issue, and thus a security matter for the site owner personally.
I think Saker is wrong in his happiness for a multi-polar world against an anglo-zionist.
So far its the same digital financial QR agenda all over the globe. They are just re-arranging the global division into 3 regional areas.
I dont see any powerful signs nowhere of returning to a traditional Christian model and values.
Did Saker wait for 2 years before pontificating? Did he not enade the ongoing deaths?
George Mc’s point may be that Saker failed on an issue far more critical than your values or a multi-polar world.
So what? We all even the best, fail from time to time. I took it as Saker just didnt want to be part of this vulnerable discussion at that time, as his intellectual talent wasnt and isnt in that area.
I see the corona scam as a personal matter, a milgram test.
Are you a coward and obedient enough to obey any order, or do you have courage and backbone to stand on your own and on what is right.
The scam confirmed the Milgram test conclusion that too many only obey whatever authority says.
This sad reality you and I nor Saker cant and couldnt change no matter how much we tried.
The Saker existed to support Russia and promote the idea that Russia has a good government. He therefore absolutely had to go along with the Covid narrative because the Russian government were going to and he could not be at odds with them on that size an issue.
From that day on he and that site became utterly worthless in my eyes, exposed as the weak gutted quislings they always were.
James: there are many that have messed their drawers over the Coronadoom, but have understood the dupe after, especially the reported declining effectiveness (95% to >0%) of the “Experimental Gene Therapeutics” throughout 2021/22.
I’m sure you would change your mind similarly.
George, a most excellent comment. Of what use a multi-polar world of dictators? And what sovereignty wd these multi-poles have, since they’re to be centrally ruled re “health” and the climate hoax?
The dictators are mainly U$A imposed, and also become a judgement call depending on a country’s geo-political situation.
Multi-polar based on International Rule of Law,
or uni-polar based on hegemonic U$A ‘rules based order”?
I am willing to take a chance on Multi-polar. 🙂
A pity. By the looks of it, a combination of health reasons, family concerns and the looming prospect of outright war between the US and Russia.
Hey Riley. It is quite popular these days to bash Russia, but curiously your article makes no mention of the ongoing intensification of public-private militarised bio-fascism for mega profit in the so-called ‘democratic’ West. Why no mention of the expanding panoptic digital web being woven within and without the Five Eyes: Canada, Australia, the UK, the u$a and New Zealand?
I seriously doubt there are many readers who are residents of your ‘evil’ Russia.
He writes about goings on in Russia, where he has lived, where most of his personal stuff is still at, and next to where he lives. He is supposed to write about the US while living in Tbilisi, Georgia? He is not bashing “Russia,” unless you identify “Russia” with the Russian ruling elite. BTW, many of the readers of his blog (which this item came from) live in Russia, report on conditions there.
Misrepresentation again. It is not that Russia is “evil” but that it doesn’t present any alternative to the West.
Putin’s Russia presents 7 very obvious alternatives to the West.
Putin jails oligarchs — as many as he can — or exiles them to the West.
Putin fights NATZO’s takeover attempts in Syria and Ukraine.
Putin is a devout Orthodox Christian, an upholder of traditional family values.
Putin has improved the economy and military security of his country.
Putin believes in the UN and the Rule of Law in international affairs, rather than in the arbitrary “[U$] Rules-based New World Order”.
Putin habitually respects other countries as “Partners” and tries constructive engagement rather than confrontation; eg, with China, Turkey, Syria, Israel and Iran.
Well sure. Just like Obama signified racial equality. Or George W Bush signified genuine Christian sentiments. The guy at the front can do and say what he wants. To truly push his credentials, he can even offer up a few sacrificial lambs. But it’s all theatre.
“It’s all theatre”.
That’s the 64 Trillion Dollar question: Can you tell Stork from butter?
Not everybody can.
Well yea, the US Dollar has been in default for decades. So what’s this wooden blockism about. Most Americans have never even worked Lived in European Societies!
They are Continental Western not Eastern Continental.
The solution is BE what you want to be.
Uphold the values that liberate you, ignore the entreaties for obedience and fealty, make as many decisions as you can without the severely societal entrenchment of, “Let’s throw money at it.”(Mammon beats the House!)
Otherwise, just give up.
Putin is in Syria by express Western invitation. I have written too many times about the conclusive evidence for this to repeat it again.
At present it’s likely that we are once again watching a play in which Russia is cast as the good guys. A play in which there are NO good guys.
Russia has even greater econ inequality than the US. Russia is giving him a really good press but that doesn’t make any of it true.
Hi, Penelope. If you are the same Penelope who used to post on Syria as “Penny for Your Thoughts”, you may remember I predicted in 2015 that Russia would help Syria expell all three invaders: the CIA’s ISIS, NATZO member Turkey, and the U$ forces. That was in the dark years when those 3 forces occupied most of Syria, had planes waltzing and bombing merrily all over Syrian air space, and even threatend Damascus with cruise missiles. Compare with today,.
As with Syria, so with Ukraine. The three forces which Russia will expell from the Russian Ukraina are: NATZO; its Ukro-nazi Azov Battalion; and a rather short line of Jewish presidents installed by The Woman from Uncle — Victoria “Flick the EU” Nudelman.
Putin is not on our side — he is on Russia’s side. And because of NATZO hubris, we have forced Putin to take Ukraine back to the bosom of Mother Russia.
I see it more or less as you. Its all theater to hide the global financial (satanic) agenda behind it.
There are too many weird circumstances in this Ukraine war.
Western Presidents and celebrities visiting Kiev in the middle of the war like its just another day in the office, while Russia is killing 200 000 young Ukrainian men around a small area in East.
Putin is implementing Great Reset Deluxe, digital IDs linked to CBDC, shots, the works, That’s the core of what counts Rule of Law? 😀 WHOSE “Law”?
West? Hey you do know we are European right, including the Irish Republic.
Ok, but unfortunately we live in the real world and have sometimes to compromise and choose a less noxious alternative to the lovely Anglo-Zionist empire. ”They are all in it together”, ”It’s a fake war”. Right, that we already know, that and we have heard it endlessly repeated by the pacifist bloc. But that doesn’t get us very far. After all we made a choice in WW2 between the Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. No contest unless you’re stuck in a useless pacifism – which of course makes you feel good, but of course means you have to avoid making hard choices. So who is it to be? The Anglo-Zionist empire, or the Voltaire’s advice to cultivate your garden.
After all we made a choice in WW2 between the Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
Many have researched and found that so much of WW2’s history to be manufactured based on speculative evidence. Considering the history since the Versailles Treaty, Germany’s descent into deprivation and all the malfeasant diplomacy, and the fact all that led to war, I am inclined to give more credit to Germany than is judicially allowed by Israel, IN COUNTRIES THAT THEY DON’T BELONG..
Many people in alt. news are covering this Western perspective. By focusing on more neglected perspectives in alt. media, in a balanced way, we can help our readers form a more balanced view.
OffG feels the old East/West paradigm is being deliberately encouraged in the mainstream and alt. press, perhaps to distract from other global agendas which are rolling out in the wake of Covid.
We mustn’t forget the level of global coordination we witnessed in 2020, and we must remain vigilant if the narrative gets switched very suddenly. Just as we went from ’deaths’ to ‘cases’ around the world in a flash, so too we went from ‘Covid’ to ‘Ukraine’.
“in a flash, we went from ‘Covid’ to ‘Ukraine’.”
Hardly “in a flash”: the anti-Russian genocide in Ukraine started in 2014 with the $5 Billion “cookie” coup by Obomba, Biden and Victoria “Frost the EU” Nudelman. Eight years and ourteen thousand dead Russian-speaking Ukrainians later is not “a flash” — it is a pussing sore that resisted normal mild treatment (Minsk 1, Minsk 2) has finally turned septic and now needs to be lanced.
I expect you know, actually, that I was referring to an abrupt shift of focus. Consider this a clarification, though, if not.
This outfit knows very well the origins of the Ukraine situation. Thanks for your comment. A2
I know you meant that MSM attention went “in a flash” from Con-19 to Ukraine. But the fuse which lit that “flash” was 8 years a-burning. To say, as Penny does, that Putin was invited in by Obomba to save Syria; or that Putin was invited in by Biden to save Donbass and Luhansk: both positions are ridiculous.
I do not contest the threat of a Global Oligachy. Nor do I contest the possibility of Russia reverting to an Oligarchy such as happened under Gorbachev. But I think Russia is moving in the opposite direction — away from Global Oligarchy and toward a Westphalian world.
And though China’s reaction to Covid-19 was Draconian, they knew what Dr.Fauci was up to in his Frankenstein Virus Labs at Fort Detrick and Wuhan — and were taking no chances. If Fauci’s merry PhDs ever “get lucky” and manage to synthesize a really dangerous GMO virus (say, a flu which kills 1 in 3 rather than 1 in 1,000 as Covid-19 does) then China’s present Bio-defense strategy (Hazsuits, Lockdown, Test & Track, Vaccine and Health ID) will be pathetically inadequate.
We are like Goethe’s Faust: in the witches kitchen where apes are playing with the Globe — and smashing it. Or like his Sorcerer’s Apprentice: playing with magic beyond our control.
The Covid scam was globally agreed in UN in 2006 as a global exercise in global emergency.
The logistics in a campaign like this takes a lot of time years to plan and agree and contract. The masks, the vaccines, the systems, were ready at the outbreak
It was a test and as such China was off course fully aware of everything.
If China had the slightest suspicion of wrong doing inside China, off course they would have kicked Fauci and Co out immediately.
Nothing happens in politics without being planned down in the tiniest detail.
Is that the excuse Putin is using too?
Why is it OK to “bash” governments of “the so-called ‘democratic’ West” but not to apply the same criticism to the Russian government when they are doing exactly the same thing?
Why do so many commentators, such as your good self, feel the need to defend the Russian government for its commitment to CBDC, Digital-ID and so on? Why is this only considered to be ‘evil’ (which is not a criticism made in the article) when Western governments do it? Surely the point is to criticise the Russian government for its “public-private militarised bio-fascism.”
Do you still think Putin is going to save the world from the big bad globalists, by being one?
it worked in the west so why not. 😂
All too well.
Pacifier 2.0 will be DeSantis in 2024.
By 2025 Europe will have organized violent resistance.
US not too far behind.
The resistance will be within 3-5%. The sheeple will eat it all up. They have calculated the 500 mio on the Guidestones correctly.
This “Letter from your globalist friend” from about 20 years ago notes that Russia and China are already under globalist control:
Your “Globalist friend” is 20 years behind the times; he refers to NATZO’s former victims — Saddam and Milosevic — as though they were still alive. He refers to the Oligarchs of 1990 as though they still controlled Russia. And he seems unaware that Communist China is now the greatest financial power in the world.
Your Globalist friend seems to have cut his teeth on “The Project for a New American Century” with its frozen mindset, that the U$A will be as great a power in the first half of the 21st Century is it was in the latter half of the 20th Century.
“We have no fear of Russia or China for we are already in full control of their system of things. China [and Russia] knows that we can freeze any of its corporations and all of its capital at the stroke of a pen.”
Your Global friend has been there, tried that; but it hasn’t turned out so well as he expected back in the palmy days of Bush, BLiar and the Clingons.
And China was the fanfare for the opening of The Covid Show! Moral: Whether China is “communist” or “state capitalist” or whatever it calls itself, it is definitely in on the Covid Con in a big way! Indeed it’s “way ahead” of us.
Yes, “China was the fanfare for the opening of The Covid Show!”
But which “theatrical angels” put that show on the road: the U$ DOD (Dept of so-called Defense) Bio-Warfare Lab in Wuhan — funded by Dr.Anthony “Frankenstein” Fauci. Same Dr.F who funded the U$DOD Frankenstein Virus Lab at Fort Detrick, MaryLand — the one that was closed down and its F.Virus research moved to Wuhan because U$ MaryLand residents were coming down with SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) two years before Covid-19 hit Wuhan.
All China did was provide the world with their ready-prepared defense strategy against U$-Weaponized Corona viruses — Lockdown, Tracking and Hazsuits. They showed the world how an economy could keep going effectively under Covid-19. And they provided SinoVac — the only Covid-19 vaccine that does not kill more people than the virus does. A pitifully small achievement, to be honest — but China did it.
Meanwhile, what are Fauci’s Angels up to in all those U$ DODs dotted around the world?
You think covid is a thing? (Jaw drops.)
There is No Business like Shoah Business.
One day perhaps the public will realise that all governments are alike, all parties work together and all are the greatest enemy of individual liberty.
I am more interested in how the Rusian regime change will happen. Will it drag on for years or will we be seeing action soon ? Does Russia still have a workable nuclear deterrent (if it ever had one) ? Have the sanctions started killing Russian children yet ?
What will the new Khazaria look like ?
“when will our [new] Russian regime change happen?” It won’t happen; once bitten (1990) twice shy.
“Does Russia have a nuclear deterrent?” Yes; otherwise NATZO would be fighting Russia face to face; instead, NATZO is only fighting Russia by proxy — to the last Ukrainian.
“Have the sanctions started killing Russian children yet ?” No; Vladimir Putin is not Soddem Hussein — he looks after his people, in war as in peace.
“What will the new Khazaria look like ?” There will be no new Khazaria; Zelensky is the last of a line of Jewish Presidents of Ukraine — installed by POTUSAs Obomba and Biden through their Jewish agent, Victoria “Fink the EU!” Nuland (Nudelman), wife of “Project for a New American Century” Robert Kagan (Cohen). Jews have never forgiven Russia for taking over Khazaria, the Largest Jewish Kingdom in History, and calling it “Ukraina” (“Russia’s Western Border Land”).
LEVEL 4 TRAVEL ADVISORY FOR RUSSIA
Issued February 13 by US.
“ U.S. citizens residing or travelling in Russia should depart immediately. Exercise increased caution due to the risk of wrongful detentions.”
Feb 14-15 NATO meeting signed a Convention broadening the circumstances under which NATO countries can go to war, from the prior Article 5 “in the event of attack.”
Travel Advisory was issued for Turkey & withdrawal of Consulate personnel by 9 countries a few days before the quake. Reason given was possible terrorist attacks after the provocative burning of the Koran by a British subject. It seemed a rather flimsy reason for withdrawing diplomatic personnel
This now looks more serious. This could turn fall scale soon.
The thin edge of the wedge…
and will it affect Offguardian’s commentariat ?
Thanks, Riley. We know that nothing can go wrong with digital IDs combined with CBDC. Putin is our man, the man of the people. Even if he implements a total control regime, it’s for the good of the people. 😀
I’ve found it very noticeable that the media are not letting us know what Putin himself has to say about anything at all these days.
“Bad Putin. We not talk to Bad Putin” is roughly the level of discourse here.
Look, the man is intelligent. So why not try to sit down with him and discuss the advantages of intelligence in world politics?
I’ll tell you why: Washington simply isn’t up to the task.
It’s much simpler to go, “Nya, Nya!” and ignore him.
Meanwhile, I am pretty sure he is continuing to do his job, based upon what he thinks will best serve Russia, and irrespective of what Washington thinks will best serve Washington…
Digital IDs will really serve “Russia”? You mean the Russian elite? You certainly don’t mean the Russian people.
Jeff, a handshake takes two people and four hands.
Oh, so you think the best thing Russia can do is to rise up against Putin and his cronies? Yeah, brilliant, why didn’t I think of that.
I’d agree that Putin has a lot more going for him in the upstairs department than many of our western ‘leaders’ – from Biden to the German dullards, to that Canadian fasciotard, etc.
Though I don’t think that any of them make their own decisions. What sits behind these people is out-of-this-world intelligent – and evil. And I don’t mean the Dr Evils that we like to hate.
Exactly. Everyone knows Biden is a puppet. Why does anyone think Putin is in charge of anything either.
On rolling out the jab in Russia, Riley quoted Putin extensively: every case of double-talk over a year or so whereby he indirectly coerced subordinates to enforce it.
The most basics of investing and holding wealth. If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it.
Russia may be just introducing a counter-party risk to people’s savings as anything digital isn’t totally secure. Holding currency under the bed probably isn’t too clever either but at least you hold it and your wealth and trades are not beholden to approval from someone else.
Cash, one can spend on anything at anytime, anywhere, and It isn’t reliant on cellphone battery power or an internet connection. People will rue the day they allowed gov’t to remove cash as a payment option. The Rothschild sons did very nicely after they were allowed to control a nation’s money supply. We are still living with that mistake. Let’s not make another.
Will all the people go for it? or will barter become to be used more widely. Maybe we are about to find out.
Fiat is the tail end of real currency.
It had to exist as a transition from asset backed to digital.
And very neatly was it done.
90% plus of the world’s population believe in fiat.
Actually Peter, you are only managing your own portfolio are the basics of investing. To those whom may or may not have such opportunities own it.
Propaganda against physical books is similar.
A couple of good points Syl.
Now, that was funny !!
“Such services are in high demand”. His tone is peculiar. Two “pleases” and such urgency? Where is the high demand coming from? Citizens begging him to implement this? Or corporations pressuring him? I know what I would guess. Same ole, same ole. Nothing to see here? Bullshit, this is the end game, man. The water is getting hotter.
Yes, I am sure if he said pretty please it would help things along.
Multipolar “sovereignty” is an oxymoron if one is in favor of a global “health” dictatorship and a global omnibus environmental treaty.
What is left of sovereignty after that?
Many masters/dictators rather than just one?
Multipolarity (vs unipolarity) seems to be a long standing theme with Mr Putin. A speech from 2007 at the Munich Security Conference:
Putin says U.S. wants to dominate world
That is the point!
Learnt from Whitney Webb in US there is a thing like National Crime Syndicate. Here you have the International Crime Syndicate with its pseudolegal arm UN with prepared contents by the Syndicate of mobsters – China and Russia included.
But its hard for the mobsters to explain the difference between the Global Socialism and its methods they use without any difference. So they declare the fact, that the mobsters made their claims as ‘soverignty’, even as ‘freedom’.
The other and only thing is the socalled wokism the East do not want to have. But they have it already – Soros was not without success. So many Chinese and also Russians are dreaming of the pseudofreedom to be one of xx genders and change it every day. To get rid of old conventions seems always more attractive than being involved in them.
What is a multipolar world if all decisions regarding health and the environment are made via global institutions? Multipolar w/o multipolar SOVEREIGNTY has no content.
Okay, right. The world isn’t perfect. I am going to live in a cave – so there.
Says who? You already have it, you just can’t admit you speak American thats it. In 1968 I was on top of the Empire State Building. WAAAAH! It was WINDY!!!!
It’s just been on tv, it’s you pussyfooting big gob cowards who want somebody else. I don’t have to shout it.
Stop farting Albert!
Give me a HUG! Don’t say OH MY GOD, its embarrassing.
Are you drunkenblogging again?
“Scott Ritter, One of the Righteous Yanks, Speaks From the Heart in Praise of Russia”
[Ritter was the man of conscience who resigned as UN Weapons Inspector rather than perjure himself by declaring that Iran possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction as claimed by British PM TB.Liar and POTU$A George “Shrub” Bush.]
Ritter is retro on rt, came over as a generalised authoritive diversionary when not only myself were wanting to know what’s happening in Syria. So I actually ended up better off going to the United Nations web site studying Coalitions Islamic State & rebellious factions.
Ritter was too militaristically NATO, as I would expect of course.
There is no truth at the UN unless it’s being imparted by countries looking hopelessly to the UN to thwart the latest US/nato attack.
They have scientists at the UN who are telling the public that CO2 is a dangerous greenhouse gas!
Ignorance like that cannot be ignored. Everybody who has studied biology would know the importance of CO2 and life on this planet. The UN uses slight of hand and cannot be trusted. It’s no longer fit for purpose.
One may be better off watching the bbc, but only very slightly.
Iraq. Not Iran.
Praise of Russia is a what we were doing from 1941-45. Apart from those who lived in a cave.
For a country secretly in league with Global Technocracy, it’s odd that Russia isn’t getting many invites to parties.
No invite to the Munich Security Conference (first time since the 1990s). A conference that seems intent on disparaging Russia as much as possible.
Meanwhile Belarus’ Lukashenko invites Biden (probably half in jest) to Belarus. Biden instead goes to safe house Poland to stoke the flames of conflict. Lukashenko welcomes Putin
Maybe a slight exaggeration but few problems are resolved without some form of dialogue
Don’t you think an invite to Munich Security Council wd have been a dead giveaway?
I see the point. No invite = Mr Putin playing the bad guy role.
Which I suppose would be the case from the perspective of Mr Putin cast as pantomime villain, as some believe.
Nothing to see here, folks. The Russians have had ‘internal passports’ — identify cards — since Tsarist times and carrying government ID is commonplace all over the EU. Needless to say, all forms of ID are machine readable so all that happens when you put it on a smartphone is that the information on the physical ID becomes part of an application. Many countries don’t require you to actually carry ID at all times but there’s invariably a catch — you can exist without one provided you don’t want to work, use a bank, travel or find somewhere to live. You can kinda/sorta live outside this but you’re really on the margins (e.g. try living without a DNI in Latin America — you’re either a tourist (passport or visa), have a DNI or you effectively don’t exist).
Countries like the US that have traditionally not had a citizens’ ID actually do have such a thing, they just call it a drivers’ license. Although issued state by state the modern license is actually a Federal ID document as the system transitions to “Real ID” (license forms are standardized and each license has a “Federal Document Number”). You can exist without one but soon you won’t be able to travel by air or enter any Federal facility without one. We also require a Social Security Number — effectively a Federal Tax ID — to do financial transactions and generally interact with government.
I’d suggest that the time to really worry is when you don’t need to carry ID. I grew up in the UK where it wasn’t customary to carry ID with you, even a driver’s license (if the police needed to see one you had 10 days to produce it). The UK has fallen into line with other countries with their ‘picture licenses’ but back in the day ID wasn’t needed because the police always seemed to know who you are. It gave them a bit of a psychological advantage when they interacted with you — you’d get stopped by the cops and they’d address you by first name, friendly like….
Many thanks for explaining ID in relation to IT. ID and IT are just tools — they can be used or abused. Some people act like the bull who charges at the red rag and ignores the matador who is waving it.
Speaking of red rags, in its early days the motor car was accompanied by a man with a red flag to warn against the oncoming danger. OffG waves a red flag to warn against oncoming digital ID. (Especially a Russian digital ID instructed by Putin — that’s headline stuff here, see above)
Digital ID doesnt stand alone…Its for use with UBI (aka ‘income management’ in Australia),CBDC (tracking of every penny you spend)…And when all the data is collected in one place begins the Profiling that 99.99% confirms you have Enemy of The State tendencies
Social credit system good!
There is a difference. You go from a physical true ID to a cyber false ID.
You become an Avatar inside Metaverse/Matrix with a false profile limited to manipulated semantic defined labels.
You are no longer You. You are what the State defines you are.
As we see with mass media and their influence on peoples false perception, this will continue upon peoples perception of themselves through their cyber ID. On top your cyber identity is easy to hack and make fraud upon.
I find it hard to watch any film where war is the main theme without thinking about the poor deluded people taking up arms for their country because of their government’s lies.
The internet has made it more difficult for them to lie without being caught out which is why, maybe, that all of the sideshows and distractions we are seeing around the world are happening.
For the psychopaths running the show it’s the equivalent of a normal person playing a video game.
When you get to a hard level you have to try a bit harder but it’s much more exiting.
I would say that quite a lot of men are forced into their uniform during times of war. The rest believe the propaganda they are fed or they are too afraid to refuse it.
The junta in Kiev is now conscripting 16 year old boys to fight at the nato front for the US dollar. Some poor chaps are being rounding up on the streets, because who at that age wants to fight a pointless war?
One chap was a double amputee but it didn’t save him from being rounded up whilst at work. Quite what they expected to do with a chap who was missing both hands is anyone’s guess.
In war a 12yr old boy maybe a killer. I know, it sounds utterly incomprehensible to all of us and emotionally rendering. I can think of nothing more as an emotional person to say about war.
Zelenskyy is always begging for arms so missing the hands still means that the chap there had two ‘arms’. 🙁
Where do they find all these weirdos? There seems to be a unlimited amount of fools and perverts always ready to make their role.
Poroshenko, Zelensky, Azov organisations, when one disappear another pops up.
This is worn-out topic. Except for psychos, those who join the military do so out of desperation.
The whataboutism here is weak; all countries plan for a digital passport.
Why does OffG vilify Russia? As long as the NATO war on Russia continues, I will voice support for Putin.
Yes, all countries plan on implementing digital passports and many other aspects of the GR. But while many in alt media freely admit this about the West they claim it’s not happening in Russia. Hence the need for reminders like this one.
The mere fact you can describe this as “vilifying” shows you have a similar entrenched bias.
But do we need this many reminders at this frequency ? And nothing at all about the NATO/NWO/Neocon game plan ?
To redirect our hopium.
Oh yes sirree! That miscreant severelyR is certainly guilty of not self-censoring.
Oh, certainly, as Admin Eins, sie ist ein ‘entrenched bias’ Experte!
Und you also know what the ‘many’ in the ‘alt media’ ‘freely admit’. Amazing!
Maybe you moonlight as a Graudian ‘Mod’ as well.
And he’s not the only one with an entrenched bias. see above
Why does SeverleyMisspelt vilify OffG?
If anybody vilified Russia, it was Riley Waggaman.
OffGuardian just let him have his/her say.
Please. Anybody can write whatever they like here.
I even agree with your first sentence, except of course that it is not the ‘countries’ that are planning for a digital passport. It is the dull-witted politicians who falsely claim to be representatives of those countries.
You are digital. I am British. I speak English.
It is not a competition roll out isn’t British.
Sorry I misspelt, ‘retarded’. Admins, why does spell check misspell ‘misspelt’?
You deserve an upvote for that alone.
misspelled was wot i learned at skool, tho wiki says the poms now also accept misspelt…
(is it “at” skool, or “in” skool” ?)…
“Learned” and “learnt” are in a similar mess.
We just need a line drawn N. to S. along the Atlantic ocean and let the Americans choose whatver they want on their side of the line.
They’ll probably want both, but the British only need one of the two options.
Just decide, for heaven’s sake, unless you can convincingly explain that there is actually a difference between them.
The point is that the war is bullshit. It’s part of the Great Reset. Putin isn’t fighting against the globalist technocrats. He’s one them.
The threat to humanity is GLOBAL. The malthusian technocratic central banking cabal has captured EVERY government in the world. The geopolitical “conflicts” being presented to us are not what they seem. They are a manipulation. Theater. Propaganda. Psychological Operations.
Articles like this are necessary to emphasize this fact.
You are quite right. The war serves many Great Reset purposes including degrading the US military equipment and the remnants of even the crooked money system that we have. They have to take down Europe and the US/UK, Australia, etc to bring in the Great Reset. Omnipresent poverty diminishes opposition.
Lavrov announced today that the Russian intention is to bring down Western rule, but multipolar dictators can form global alliances with impunity– like global “health” mandates. How can Russia be truly for multipolarity while giving away sovereignty via global “health” dictatorship and global environmental dictatorship?
What is there left of sovereignty after these?
20th Century. The Political Healthy Environment is handled by investing voting Women.
Everything including the kitchen sink has been thrown in. Looking at Commercialisation, I must say you’ve made a Royal pigs ear of it.
That seems fair, I call it pantomime so I did my own version.
You could have made the same point without the line about supporting Putin.
There is no leader in the system deserving of your support.
I especially support Putin’s anti-woke posture, and that he did not inject his people with mRNA.
The Sputnik-poison ist by no means any better as the mRNA-poison (it is vector-based Like A-Z and therefore as dangerous), you propably heard about people dying in UK at nearly the same rate as in the US, but keep your little head in the Sand.
False. Viral vector vaccines has been approved for half a century, whereas every creature injected with mRNA vaccine died within 5 years. Why do you lie?
Why do you lie? Sputniks vector is genetically modified and was developed with the British Astra Zeneca – both the same shit and not at all ‘approved for half a century’. But here we discuss the side effects, while in Russia is silence. In Russia and China there is always silence, like on cemetery … guess why.
Since Sputnik is licensed from AstraZeneca, it still instructs your cells to produce the spike proteins, so what’s the big difference? If you support the Russian government (I’ll leave the Russian people out of this), then you must also support the EU, right?
Right – Trump or Elon are anti-woke too so what? The “culture war” is largely a distraction. I suggest you ready this authors other work in regards to your claim that Russians weren’t injected. Like Trump (Operation Warpspeed) or Elon (neuralink) Putin is not your savior. They only offer a different flavor or tyranny.
Trump and Elon are alright
Then you are on their side. So be it.
Don’t underestimate woke https://architectsforsocialhousing.co.uk/2022/05/10/the-road-to-fascism-for-a-critique-of-the-global-biosecurity-state-6-from-kitsch-to-woke-the-aesthetics-of-totalitarianism/
If you’re on the billionaire class side, you’re as woke as it gets. We’re waging a class war if you haven’t noticed. And we the people are losing.
Their words may be right, but that does not make them right.
I am afraid Putin did recommend the same RNA Vaxx, injected on a virus vector. He must bear responsibility — even if he was suckered into it, even if he were hypochondriac enough to believe in Con-19) The problem with RNA vaxx is: they inject only the little piece of RNA that is a specific marker for “Novel Virus Covid-19” namely, its unique, U$-patented “furan binding site” on its spike protein. Unfortunately, the Vaxx then induces humans to produce this GMO spike protein” (as well as the anti-body against “spike protein”). Both agents damage human bloodvessels, hence clots and heart failure among vaxxees — especially the young whose blood is very active.
The only relatively safe vaccine is SinoVac, the traditional whole-virus “flu shot” made by conservative Chinese medical authorities. It is made from whole viruses related to Covid-19 but without Covid-19’s dangerous U$-patented GMO spike protein. Unfortunately, traditional annual “flu shots” have never prevented traditional annual flu epidemics. I guess no vaccine ever will. The flu is like that — live and let live.
Heaven help us if U$ Bio-warfare Labs, currently funded by Dr.Fauci, ever “get lucky” and patent a flu virus that is as infectious as the common cold but much more dangerous than Covid-19 turned out to be. Because, sure as hens lay eggs, that virus is going to escape from its Frankenstein Virus Lab. Pray that the upcoming UN meeting on Bio-Warfare (demanded by Russia and China but yet ot be held) will be more successful than meetings on Nuclear Disarmament — because biological threats are as great as nuclear threats — in fact, a major part of the Nuclear threat is radiation that induces bio-transformation.
Immunity goes beyond antibodies. As the other aspects are hard to evaluate, the commercial focus is on antibodies.
If the intention behind mRNA was good, why did they not use it to generate antibodies instead?
How can Sinovac be traditional when no one has a specimen or collection of the virus?
Riley had an article on Putin’s double-talk pushing – indirectly enforcing – the jab.
I am not convinced that Putin and Biden are in it together. Global South commentators certainly see the war against them as real.
Certainly “the Global South” (about 2/3 of the global population) do not vote at UN with “the West” (about 1/8th of global pop) over Ukraine vs Russia. Nor do they vote with “the West” over Israel vs Palestine. Countries in India, Africa, Asia and South America know which way the money has been flowing (from them to us) and which way the bullets have been flying (from us to them).
I looked up your Link to Thierry Meyssan. It does not seem to be about the whole “Global South” but about Turkey, which holds an interesting position because it has one foot in “the West” (ie, Eastern Europe) and the other foot in “the Global South” (ie, Western Asia). Thus Turkey acts ambivalently in pursuit of its own interests. On one hand (as a “Western power” and the largest army in NATZO) it helped “the West” (which includes Israel and Australia) to invade Syria, steal its oil and flood Europe with refugees. On the other hand, as a Middle Eastern power (“Global South”) it is eager to join the increasingly powerful and wealthy Shanghai Cooperation Org (SCO) which includes Russia, China and Iran. If it does so, Turkey, the Med and TurkStream are expected to replace Ukraine, the Baltic and NordStream as the “hub” for Russian gas and oil to Western Europe.
Both Putin and Biden take orders, period. They aren’t really in charge, they’re just there to make us think they are. They’ll play their game, pretending to be mortal enemies like all political leaders do. At the end of the day they will do what they are told or they will be gone. As tired and cliche as it sounds, the bankers are truly the ones in charge.
Read a bit of history, not the shit from those books in school either, but the type of history our owners would prefer you not read. Read about who finances both sides of wars. Read about just who has been doing that for hundreds of years. It isn’t new really, it’s just getting more in our face now as they’re getting near their ultimate goal. They have most people so dumbed down by trivia, so busy merely surviving, so bought into one fake side or another, they’re very close to the end game now.
As for seeing the war against those two as real, that’s just what the owners want. And if you still buy into the whole team sports mentality, right vs left, “democratic” vs “socialist” or whatever, you’re helping our owners to achieve their one true goal – consolidated, complete control over every living thing on this planet. All the rest is mere distraction, created by the very same people consolidating wealth and power. Once you see that, and you will get there eventually, it doesn’t happen overnight, you’ll realize just how brilliant and long term their scam has been. You will be pissed once you see it, as most of us out here have been for at least the last three years, for some they’ve seen it far, far longer than that.
IMO, it’s more like balanced reporting. If it’s any consolation, i would also voice my support for what President Putin is doing, when it’s warranted.
Because too many in the West think Putin is a good guy, and because the propaganda in the West is pushing hard the same.
There are no good guys in government. They are all ultimately compromised persons in positions of authority, and the lower ranks are just low IQ order followers.
Than God for America and the West! 🙏🏻
I was worn down by invasions and wars, misdeeds and torrents of propaganda, the strangulation of Africa, the subversion of South America.
But now I understand (at last!) that Russia rushing to roll out digital ID is what I should have worried over.
We were free, unwatched, untracked. Now this danger approaches that could enslave us. Russia must be stopped at all costs.
Riley didn’t say digital ID cards were bad. He said they were good.
“Honi soit qui mal y pense.” (Honey, your slip is showing) — 1066 And All That.
It’ll end up being a Card you can put around your neck wrist or put it in your pocket.
Nobody is telling you the USA are the good guys. The USA are bad guys.
They’re telling you Russia is on the same team of bad guys as the USA: Team Great Reset. Team Vaccine Passport. Team Depopulation. Team Technocracy.
This is an important detail for people interested in truth.
Possibly one of the most inaccurate first sentences I’ve ever seen. As if there isn’t and wasn’t a complete media and entertainment industry and infrastructure promoting the USA at all times, for decades.
You can believe the digital ID is your doom. I believe it’s the destruction of any system that dares to oppose the parasites kingdom and the mass murder and silencing of innocent people across the world; by war, by oppression, by starvation, by environmental tyranny.
None of that required any fucking digital ID.
Riley’s pieces are myopic, maybe intentionally so, but who cares? It’s small potatoes and a little provocation for the relatively small number of Russian agents and advocates who believe or say that Russia is a country run by angels. That’s obviously ridiculous, but the vast majority of evil is originating elsewhere. Look where the real power in the world lies and rail against it.
This might as well be an article about the roll out of digital ID in Morocco. It’s that far off the mark in addressing anything of the problems the world faces from the parasites who want to dominate it all and the veil of lies that distort our view of reality.
People were looking for open openings in all the smog. Russia seemed to be one. Apparently they are not.
Just another power fight among the business elites. Same shit.
With Russia’s new weapons they wanted a better place in the club than being dismissed as a gas station masqueraded as a country.
Fair enough, but the new boss with new weapons is the same as the old boss with old weapons. “There is nothing new under the sun”.
Russia, China, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan – all on the same team as USA. Sure.
Re one “important detail”. If Covid-19 had been a real health threat, and if “The Vaxx” had been a real vaccine, then a Vaccine Passport would have been a good thing. But as they weren’t, it isn’t.
Doesn’t mean that digital health passports are not protection against global travellers spreading real diseases, such as HIV (which is a new disease but now claims 20Million victims worldwide) or TB which is now coming back to (or in) “First World” countries.
HIV is just as fake as COVID. Faker, even.
as a matter of fact, all viruses and contagion are fake. So health passports never make sense.
Viewed truth is two parts of present tense. Historically reference and industrious presentally applicable to current dictums is the core of Korp.
It used to be more anti-NATO here. But perhaps maligning Russia will allowe OffG to keep their website? The Saker blog was not so lucky. It does look like the UK’s war against Russia will be made offical soon.
Legend to the contrary, it is possible to be anti-NATO without also being pro-BRICS. False dichotomies are a favorite trick of the globalist élites. They finance and control all sides of war so that no matter who wins, they do. And war is so very useful for population reduction, expanding governmental authority and eliminating natural rights — how could the globalists lose by staging them?
Putin: another god that failed. 😥
Very few human beings ever regarded him as a ‘god’.
He’s just a politician who happens to be a lot smarter than most when it comes to looking after his own country’s interests. That’s his job, right?. Why on earth would he do instead what Washington wants? Like the US is the moral centre of the Universe . . . ?
I tend to agree with you about Putin and not see him as tied into (at least not fully and/or willingly) tied into the globalist agenda. His motives are distinct. He is a Russian nationalist. And before I am attacked for saying this, I am not saying all that he does is right. I am not saying he is not intruding on people’s privacy and freedom — he is. But his motives are mainly to increase Russia’s security and stature. And, of course, he thinks he is the man to do it (and very likely is), so he wants to increase his own power and to remain in power. Do I like him? Not particularly. Do I want to live in Russia? (as I expect some of you will tell me to do) No. But I do try to understand him.
I agree with you and WarDropper. The man is doing his job of looking after his country’s interests: its economy, its morality and its security. Would that our man/woman would do his/her/their job half as well.
It was a reference to an influential book from the 1940s about renouncing the USSR: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_God_that_Failed

Just not that much
No sexism in Zelensky’s Ukraine.
Wonder if Olena knows, or approves.
After two months of deep and profound mockery in comments sections in the media, she has been recalled. Or so it was announced.
Otherwise, our ass-licker government would accept whatever is imposed, no problem.
Anyway, how would you look at that:
Training “Women power”
And, down in red, the italic font – “The main lever is in your hands even if you are on your knees”.
What an ambassador, yeah!
From your Link: “Zelensky appoints sexologist pyramid schemer as ambassador to Bulgaria. While Zelensky hypnotizes Western governments into forking over vast sums to finance his war effort, he has appointed a literal hypnotist (and part-time sexologist multi-level marketer) to a high-level diplomatic position.”
Reminds me of what I heard about Ukraine in the old days when it was still part of the Kingdom of Khazaria. The king had a Jewish girlfriend, so he ordered his entire country to be converted to Judaism. Talk about Woman Power!

Is this a mod. Flapper Period aka roaring ’20’s. Bit lame imo.
ffs, have you ever even been to Russia? [Riley Waggaman lives in Russia and is married to a Russian – ed] Dude, my friggin’ house has an internal passport. Really. The word “passport” in Russian just means something like “official documentation.”
Not saying I love all the bureaucracy and endless amount of paperwork required to do stuff in Russia and the CIS, but there is an ENORMOUS gap between a digital version of ID that you can carry on your phone (instead of a sheaf of paper documents that can NEVER be ripped or stained, etc) and the dreaded “vaccine passports” for crap like traveling abroad or entering restaurants, etc.
Digital ID and “vaccine” passports are two cheeks of the same arse.
Public transport is ID, thanks, glad we got that part out the way..or have we?
I’m reminded of the old adage … ‘fools rush in, where angels fear to tread’ …
Part of me agrees that the idea of digital junk on one’s smt-phone, sounds kinda reasonable. However, there is the other part (majority) which counsels that one’s personal data then becomes available for nefarious misuse, ostensibly due to the fact that it was permitted for use by the holder to whichever private-provider has been given the contract.
Sorry Sam I have to disagree with you. I live In South Africa and we have had ID from time immoral. We now have a plastic card with a Bio chip which works just fine. If this backward ANC would insist on a digital ID – I would refuse and so would the majority of my fellow citizens. The reasoning for that was in the days of Apartheid, our black citizens were forced to carry what was know as a “Dompas” at all times. We are not required to have our ID’s on us at all time, however, try and conduct any business without it – just not possible. But, I am not required to show an ID to the authorities unless I want to.
This may change as we have a NWO president who bends over for anyone who passes him some Moolah. The US just gave him (the ANC) $8. billion to help finally put the last nail into out state run (down) electricity supplier (Eskom) by closing out coal mines and shutting down the coal fired power stations. We are supposed to use renewable energy.
BTW, 95 percent of our population could not afford a basic solar system to power a small home. Those of us who have a small system 6 panels and a 5kw lithium battery, spent our reserve lifesaving – instead of a overseas (or any vacation), for that matter.
As for vaccine passports they were outright rejected by every sound thinking South Africans. The ANC knew when to back off, precisely for the reason I gave above. We are going to die (of laughter) when they try and introduce a digital currency.More than half our working force do not have bank accounts.
Good luck and be safe.
“I live In South Africa and we have had ID from time immemorial.”
I can remember when we had no ID cards, and when they were introduced I made a bit of money as a chemistry student by developing reels of film with photos.
That was when many people decided to quit South Africa.
On the ship to England was an English parson who explained to me that ID cards were un-British, and that the Nazis during the War asked people: Show me your papers.
Personally, I live in Israel which is very digitizeh and where ID cards are compulsory. I carry an ID card but I must confess that my inner Britisher prevents its owner from taking advantage of its digital convenience.
Bird in a gilded cage.
Your Parson was right. Unfortunately, Britain — and the West in general — is increasingly populated with people who are not British, and who don’t have British mores and sensibilities.
Brits don’t have carry ID either, thank you.
And if you simply called it a government ID, how would that make it better?
Never mind the advantages — ID cards are un-British.
You may think it’s a nothingburger, but many Russians (including pro-Putin, pro-SMO conservatives) would strongly disagree.
If Con-19 had been a real health threat and “The Vaxx” had been a real vaccine, then a vaccine passport would have been a good idea. But as they weren’t, it isn’t.
