Ukraine War is ‘Biden’s war’ Now


The most obvious explanation to the mysterious air dash of the UK Defence Minister Ben Wallace to Washington on Tuesday could be that he was canvassing for the support of the Biden Administration for his pitch to succeed Liz Truss as Britain’s next prime minister. But another plausible explanation can be that the secret, hurried trip marked a defining moment in the conflict in Ukraine, which is showing all signs of turning into a full-fledged war. 

To be sure, the Biden team cannot but be worried that London is drifting into chaos and the Conservative Party’s faction leaders scurry around like headless chicken looking for a substitute to Truss who stepped down on Thursday. 

The British economy is disintegrating and the Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt anticipates that a cut on the defence budget is inevitable. That is to say, the Deep State’s fun and frolic in Kiev is no longer affordable. The UK is heading for hard times, the rubric of Global Britain looks delusional. 

Enter President Biden. The reports from Moscow suggest that Russians have hard intelligence to the effect that Washington has demanded from President Zelensky some spectacular performance on the battlefield as the midterms in the US on November 8 is round the corner.

Big Pharma’s Child-Vax Windfall


On Oct. 20, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention handed another huge gift to Big Pharma: In a little-publicized meeting, the agency’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to recommend adding the Covid vaccine to the childhood and adolescent immunization schedule. This makes the Covid vaccine market vast and indefinite—exposing children to unnecessary risks while shielding drug companies from liability.

Throughout the pandemic, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration rubber-stamped every iteration of the vaccines that came through the door. So this final outcome is hardly surprising. And yet it still has the power to shock. It never should have come to this. Despite all the “sciencing” that led us here, it is a completely perverse outcome. The Covid bonfire is down to its last fading embers—and now the CDC effectively decrees that every child forever should receive this novel, barely tested, potentially dangerous injection.

The potential profits flowing from this approval are enormous. The Covid injections were all approved under emergency laws that effectively shielded the corporate developers from any liability. This temporary shield would expire in October 2024. When the CDC officially adds the shots to the childhood immunization schedule, all future liability transfers to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP. The shield extends to adult shots, as well; once the product is covered under VICP, manufacturers become immune against all consumer legal challenges, shifting damages claims to US taxpayers. Having already received FDA approval as “safe and effective,” and with no concern for liability, the manufacturers are free to churn out mRNA injections as they will. Shots and boosters from birth until death, multiplied by every citizen in the nation. Childhood Covid vaccination is the 2021 windfall compounded into eternity.

They're Recycling The Viagra Rape Atrocity Propaganda They Used On Libya


The west is advancing the claim that Putin is distributing Viagra to his soldiers so that they can more effectively rape Ukrainians, which was a ridiculous propaganda narrative the first time the west used it to manufacture consent for regime change in Libya.

In a Thursday interview with the French government-owned news agency AFP, a Mauritian-British official from the United Nations named Pramila Patten claimed that Russia has a "military strategy" of mass rape in Ukraine and that Russian soldiers are being "equipped" with the erectile dysfunction medication Viagra in order to facilitate that military strategy.

“When you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra, it’s clearly a military strategy,” Patten said.

Because AFP is one of the major propaganda multipliers whose material is republished by news media outlets around the world, Patten's completely unevidenced claim of weaponized Viagra has been uncritically reported as a real news story by outlets like CNNThe New York PostForbesThe IndependentThe Hill, and Yahoo News. This claim will now be folded into many rank-and-file mainstream news consumers' understanding of what is happening in Ukraine, despite its brazenly propagandistic nature.

War and Regrets in Ukraine


Of the Vietnam War, Henry Kissinger, former national security advisor and secretary of State under Presidents Nixon and Ford, said, “We should never have been there.” Before long, Americans, even the politicians inside the Beltway, will reach the same conclusion about Washington’s Ukrainian proxy war against Russia. 

No one in the White House, the Senate, or the House consciously set out to turn the proxy Ukrainian war with Moscow into a contest of “competitive societal collapse” between Russia and NATO. But here we are. No one imagined that the Biden administration and the bipartisan war party would drive Americans and Europeans into a political, military, and economic valley of death, from which there is no easy escape. Yet that is precisely what is happening.

For the moment, Washington remains blind to these developments. Whether in print, radio, television, or online, the narrative is clear: despite horrific losses—at least 400,000 Ukrainian battlefield casualties including 100,000 soldiers killed in action—Ukrainian forces are winning. Moreover, the narrative says, America’s financial and economic dominance will ultimately overwhelm the deceptively weak Russian economy.

The Ukrainian-victory narrative admittedly benefits hugely from Western media that actively “tune out” opposing views and depict Russia and its armed forces in the worst possible light. The fact that nearly half a century of the Cold War conditioned Americans to think the worst of Russians certainly helps.

It’s Time To Cut Zelensky and Ing-wen From the US Dole


As it pertains to the American public, Ukraine’s response to the Russian invasion can be summed up with two words: "Zelensky demands."

To date, Washington elites and their politicians have been happy to provide – at public expense – lining their own pockets in the process.

As of this writing, US aid for Ukraine has reached approximately $67.5 billion, a figure greater than Russia’s entire 2021 military budget. According to the State Department, this support includes $15.2 billion in direct military assistance. The support comes although 60-70 percent of lethal aid never reaches the front lines, according to a now-redacted CBS interview with on-the-ground activists.

Not only is the American taxpayer supporting much of the Ukrainian military, it is also supporting the Ukrainian government. The same working class Americans who were deemed "nonessential" in 2020 – who saw their businesses shuttered and burned down – now have to pay entitlement programs both at home and in Ukraine.

Think Twice Before Calling the Cops: The Deadly Cost of Police Welfare Checks


Think twice before you call the cops to carry out a welfare check on a loved one. Especially if you value that person’s life. Particularly if that person is disabled, mentally ill, elderly, autistic, hearing impaired, suffering from dementia, or might have a condition that hinders their ability to understand, communicate or immediately comply with an order.

Elon and the Nazis


The world’s richest man, Space X’s Elon Musk, has a problem. Musk’s Starlink, a low-orbit satellite internet connectivity system, is used free of charge by the Zelenskyy regime in Ukraine. The system is used to target and kill Russians, so naturally, Zelenskyy and his neo-Nazi proteges consider it essential.

Elon Musk is a lot like Donald Trump when it comes to geopolitics. He does not understand the complexities of the war and, like far too many westerners, especially Americans, apparently does not realize he is paying Nazis to kill not only Russian soldiers but also innocent ethnic Russians in Donbas and elsewhere in Ukraine.

Musk said the system is costing him $20 million a month in Ukraine. He thinks Ukraine, NATO, and the Pentagon (the US taxpayer) should pick up the tab. One does not remain the wealthiest man in the world by giving things away for free.

But Elon made a mistake. He went on Twitter and offered a few suggestions on how this completely avoidable war might find its end. This prompted the “diplomat” and “international lawyer,” blue check Andrij Melnyk, Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, to respond in less than diplomatic fashion...

Truth is Treason…


A recent study done by the Heart Rhythm Society published this week makes the claim that video games are a cause of cardiac arrest in children. 

The Sun: “Video games could trigger heart attacks in children with undiagnosed heart issues, new research has revealed.

Some kids are born with irregular heart rhythm, otherwise known as an arrhythmia, and don't even find out unless they get tested…

Australian experts have said the adrenaline surge from the excitement of playing a game can prove lethal to kids with this condition.

They found that multiplayer war games were the most dangerous as they sparked the most heart attacks in kids…

Co-investigator Doctor Christian Turner, of Sydney Children's Hospitals Network Sydney said: ‘We already know that some children have heart conditions that can put them at risk when playing competitive sports. But we were shocked to discover that some patients were having life-threatening blackouts during video gaming.’ He added: ‘Video gaming was something I previously thought would be an alternative 'safe activity.”

Europe’s Ultimate Choices on Ukraine


As the Ukraine conflict continues, a basic question with ethical dimensions has risen and will need to be answered soon by European politicians: how moral it is to support Ukraine “as long as it takes” against the necessity of protecting your own citizens’ welfare and the constitutional duty to follow your people’s mandate which is the basic rule of democracy?

European unclenched and blind support for US policies in the Ukraine conflict, and the dire economic and political consequences it has unleashed, is bringing the continent’s political architecture to a defining moment which may only be resolved through the end of the European Union (EU) regime and the emergence of a new and still undefined new political settlement.

Betting on Russia’s defeat and Vladimir Putin’s demise, the EU has followed the US-led economic war against Russia via sanctions which now far outnumber those directed against any other country on earth but nevertheless have failed. On the other hand, beyond the adverse impact on consumers and small/medium businesses caused by rising energy bills, general inflation, and the prospects of serious heating scarcity this winter, EU’s sanctions against Russia are causing irreparable damage to the continent’s economy.

Destroy the Economy, Win a Nobel Prize


Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is a 2022 recipient of the Nobel Prize in economics for his writings on how government should respond to bank failures. Honoring Bernanke for his advice on what government should do when banks fail is like giving a fire safety award to an arsonist.
