Here They Go Again: Biden 'Senses' Russia About To Attack Ukraine

Frenzied US predictions of an impending Russian assault on Kiev have one-by-one fallen by the wayside, leaving the Biden Administration's credibility in tatters. Yet they still persist. Yesterday Biden claimed he "sensed" that they would attack. Today Secretary of State Blinken appeared before the UN claiming that if Russia does NOT attack it would be because they heeded US warnings! Also today: rare victory in San Francisco and Democrats find that the masks are not the electoral panacea they once believed. Watch today's Liberty Report...

Corporate Vaccine Mandates and Vaccine Passports — Brought to You by BlackRock and Vanguard?

undefined

After the US Supreme Court last month froze the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for large private employers, some companies — including BoeingGeneral Electric and Starbucks — dropped plans to implement the mandate.

Others, based on guidance issued in 2020 by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, left the mandates in place.

Most of the large employers that opted to mandate COVID vaccines for their employees, even though the Supreme Court ruled they didn’t have to, have something in common: BlackRock and The Vanguard Group have ownership stakes in them.

BlackRock and Vanguard, two of the world’s “Big Three” asset managers, also are among the top three shareholders of COVID vaccine makers PfizerModerna and Johnson & Johnson — which means the two investment giants stand to benefit from these companies’ soaring profits and the resulting rise in those companies’ stock prices.

Happy Ukraine (Non) Invasion Day!

Politicians and the obedient media endlessly predicted that a Russian invasion of Ukraine was "imminent." Many even conveniently told us "invasion day" would be today, February 16. Some even told us the time. All were wrong. But they still want us to listen to them. Also today: bipartisan "support" for "invaded" Ukraine in the US Senate. And...The CDC (finally) discovers a thing called "natural immunity" and New Hampshire votes to restore doctor-patient relationship. Watch today's Liberty Report...

The January 6 Pipe Bombs Look Like Another FBI Hoax

undefined

In the 15-minute time span before the joint session of Congress convened at 1:00 p.m. on January 6, 2021, two incidents that set the stage for the day’s ensuing chaos happened simultaneously.

First, a man named Ryan Samsel, after taking some sort of direction from Ray Epps, overran a thin line of police and metal racks in what would be the first official breach of Capitol grounds around 12:50 p.m. (Samsel was charged and has been incarcerated for more than a year; Epps faces no charges.) Joining Samsel were members of the Proud Boys and a still-unknown number of FBI informants.

Around the same time, a woman named Karlin Younger who just happened to be walking to a laundry facility near the Republican National Committee headquarters just happened to look down and see what she believed was a pipe bomb nestled between a dumpster and a fence right next to the building. 

Both events fueled panic in the nation’s capital just as a contentious meeting to certify the Electoral College vote in the 2020 presidential election got underway in the chamber of the US House of Representatives. Then, the news got worse. Capitol police reportedly discovered another explosive outside the DNC headquarters.

US Credibility Collapse: Russian Troops Returning After Exercises...Like They Said

After weeks of breathlessly assuring us that Russia was about to attack Ukraine, Russian troops and military equipment are returning to their bases after exercises in Belarus and elsewhere. As they said they would do. What does this teach us about Beltway "Russia experts"? Also today, Canada's Trudeau goes full fascist and Russiagate bizarrely returns with a new US spook attack on ZeroHedge! Today on the Liberty Report...

The Crisis in Ukraine Is Not About Ukraine. It's About Germany

undefined

The Ukrainian crisis has nothing to do with Ukraine. It’s about Germany and, in particular, a pipeline that connects Germany to Russia called Nord Stream 2. Washington sees the pipeline as a threat to its primacy in Europe and has tried to sabotage the project at every turn. Even so, Nord Stream has pushed ahead and is now fully-operational and ready-to-go. Once German regulators provide the final certification, the gas deliveries will begin. German homeowners and businesses will have a reliable source of clean and inexpensive energy while Russia will see a significant boost to their gas revenues. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.

The US Foreign Policy establishment is not happy about these developments. They don’t want Germany to become more dependent on Russian gas because commerce builds trust and trust leads to the expansion of trade. As relations grow warmer, more trade barriers are lifted, regulations are eased, travel and tourism increase, and a new security architecture evolves. In a world where Germany and Russia are friends and trading partners, there is no need for US military bases, no need for expensive US-made weapons and missile systems, and no need for NATO. There’s also no need to transact energy deals in US Dollars or to stockpile US Treasuries to balance accounts. Transactions between business partners can be conducted in their own currencies which is bound to precipitate a sharp decline in the value of the dollar and a dramatic shift in economic power.

This is why the Biden administration opposes Nord Stream. It’s not just a pipeline, it’s a window into the future; a future in which Europe and Asia are drawn closer together into a massive free trade zone that increases their mutual power and prosperity while leaving the US on the outside looking in. Warmer relations between Germany and Russia signal an end to the “unipolar” world order the US has overseen for the last 75 years. A German-Russo alliance threatens to hasten the decline of the Superpower that is presently inching closer to the abyss. This is why Washington is determined to do everything it can to sabotage Nord Stream and keep Germany within its orbit. It’s a matter of survival.

Ukraine War Inevitable?

They Are Still Defending Lockdowns

undefined

Fifteen years ago, writers schooled in computer science began to imagine various totalitarian schemes for pandemic control. Experienced public health officials in 2006 warned that this would lead to disaster. Donald Henderson, for example, went through the whole list of possible restrictions, shooting them down one by one. 

Still, a decade and a half later, governments all over the world tried lockdowns anyway. And sure enough, since April of 2020, scholars have observed that these lockdown policies haven’t worked. The politicians preached, the cops enforced, citizens shamed each other, and businesses and schools did their best to comply with all the strictures. But the virus kept going with seeming disregard for all these antics. 

Neither oceans of sanitizer, nor towers of plexiglass, nor covered mouths and noses, nor crowd avoidance, nor the seeming magic of six feet of distance, nor even mandated injections, caused the virus to go away or otherwise be suppressed. 

The evidence is in. Restrictions are not associated with any particular set of virus mitigation goals. Forty studies have shown no connection between the policy (egregious violations of human liberty) and the intended outcomes (diminishing the overall disease impact of the pathogen).
