Wheeler files - part two

twelfthbough - Sun, 04/14/2024 - 15:43

Army Captain Jack Wheeler in Vietnam, 1969source: Jack's memorial website

Jack had a very high security clearance and was consulting for Mitre Corporation at the time of his murder.  

Assorted media groups have taken turns ruminating on the Wheeler case. Netflix weighed in with an episode of Unsolved Mysteries for October 2020.

We learn from the article: 

1. Wheeler told his wife he would spend a few days after Christmas working on something important at Mitre in Washington.
2. Mitre, a defense contractor, specializes in AI, satellite systems, space security and cyber security among many other things. Mitre manages federally-funded R&D in support of government agencies.
3. Wheeler worked in cybersecurity at Mitre. According to journalist Steve Volk, “He was working on the issues that we're seeing now made manifest with, you know, Russia interfering with the election, Russia and China supposedly hacking into our power grid... That’s the stuff that Wheeler was working on at the time. The problem though is that there is nothing to connect those parts of his bio to his actual murder.”
4. Wheeler's house was ransacked and his briefcase never recovered. 

That's a remarkable statement. Circa 2009-2010 Wheeler was working on various matters that surfaced as allegations around 2020. Thank you, Steve.

We can imagine team deep state knitting narratives together and buttressing them with data manipulations, system hacks, and whatever spook actors and social engineering glue would be called for to hold it all together (turns out, a LOT). Seriously. What other "work" can be involved brain-storming and think-tanking events that haven't even happened for ten years? Was Wheeler getting more and more dismayed at this trajectory? Why not use those amazing resources to solve some of the actual horrible problems plaguing the world in 2010, like human trafficking rings for but one example? 
Not to worry, my little cabbage! A few years before the exercise goes live, they simply redefine whatever they want to thoroughly map out and execute as A Dangerous Threat to Our Democracy, and Survey Says:

The media takes over, and the the social engineering feedback loop hums into gear as these clowns ride the mechanical bull. 

some poor girl in a youtube

What could possibly go wrong?

Consider the events these past few years as purposefully world-altering, ie: by design, to usher in the Final Communist Dystopia. The design would have been planned far in advance, over many decades, with think tanks and other trusted partners. 

Is it a stretch to consider Mitre one of those elite partners? Certainly not. WHO ELSE would it be if not premiere defense contractors like Mitre? What and who do we think they're defending? Oh yes, OUR Democracy. 

Friends, a mere fifteen years ago, it was already huge stakes. Fifteen years is like fifteen minutes in Globalist Planning Time.

Wheeler had worked in this machine for decades: Vietnam, Reagan Assassination, 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Minot-Barksdale Bent Spear, etc. I doubt there are more than a dozen people alive at any given moment with an equivalent depth of technical and practical understanding. 

Was he seeing the end game plan? He could probably extrapolate the decision tree out to just about where we are now in April 2024, ie: standing at the brink of all hell breaking loose. He would risk his life to try and warn us. That's my opinion. Someone stopped him, and that's a fact.

While digging through the weeds and the Wayback Machine, we found this old Incogman post about Wheeler's death.  A commenter left this 8/5/08 article describing links between Mitre, Warren Buffet, Henry Kissinger, AIG, 9/11, Nebraska, Offutt AF Base, a nuclear attack on the US, etc.

A expanded and highly recommended version of the Mitre article is here:

Here's a summary of the Mitre article:
  • Warren Buffet guarantees the US will suffer a nuclear attack, it's "virtually a certainty," because more and more people globally hate America concurrent with the increased access to nuclear weapons. Buffet made statements like this as early as 2002.
  • On 9/11 Buffet was at his Omaha, NE residence preparing to host his golf tournament at Offutt AFB [HQ of USSTRATCOM - ed.]. Invited were celebrities, professional athletes, and elite business leaders including Ann Tatlock.
  • Tatlock was CEO of Fiduciary Trust, an investment banking firm located in WTC2. FTC lost 87 employees on 9/11 when Flight 175 hit.
  • Five months before 9/11, Franklin Resources of San Mateo, CA bought FTC for $825M.
  • Buffet owns Mitre Corporation.
  • Mitre was one of very few entities with "super-user"capability to access FAA, NORAD and USAF systems. A super-user was needed to pull off the attacks.
  • Mitre, a major defense contractor, was headed by former DCI Dr. James Rodney Schlesinger, per Henry Kissinger's request. Schlesinger later served as Defense Secretary.
  • Maurice "Hank" Greenburg was a powerful political fixer and member of CFR and CSIS.
  • Greenburg was the oldest and largest paying client of Kissinger Associates, paying millions a year since 1982.
  • Maurice "Hank" Greenburg and Warren Buffet were "friendly" rivals.
  • Collaboration between Buffet, Maurice "Hank" Greenberg and his two sons, and AIG indicate that the 9/11 attacks were a "mega-ENRON" level accounting fraud of the insurance industry. Insurance premiums rose sharply and resulted in record revenues and profits.
  • Kissinger connections helped Greenburg make lucrative deals in Peking (Beijing) and Moscow [decades ago - ed.] AIG was the only foreign company with [Communist] Chinese government approval to insure Shanghai's 13 million Chinese residents.
  • AIG had federal tax laws relaxed to exempt them from taxes in specific offshore jurisdictions.
  • Article concludes with references to BCCI, John Kerry, and Bill Clinton. (see:
That is an awful lot of disturbing coincidences.
Digging a bit deeper,  we learn that subsidiaries of Berkshire Hathaway had involvements in 9/11: A NetJet plane tracking Flight 93, plus a hijacker trained at Flight Safety International, plus multiple hijackers using Sun Trust Bank...?

What are the odds? These claims were printed in newspapers waaaaay back in the day. How quaint is that? In order to find things like this on the internet today, you need an ancient source link to take you to the prehistoric Wayback Machine archives while crossing your fingers and holding your breath. That's just how the deep state likes it. Wayback Machine Petersburg Times, published 9/15/2001Courtesy: Wayback MachineCNN 7/10/2002
If you really want to experience the gloating over Warren Buffet's good fortune, check out this Motley Fool opinion published just six weeks after 9/11.

Post 9/11, WSJ rehabilitated Buffet from underdog to "stock genius." 
It is perhaps distasteful to frame an event that involved such massive loss of life as a business opportunity, but insurers -- and, specifically, reinsurers -- deal in the realm of catastrophe. With the massive exposure insurance companies have to the World Trade Center, owners in these public companies must look at this event as a reality of business.
...The "surprise" factor in this type of insurance [super-catastrophe coverage - Ed.] virtually guarantees that earnings are going to reflect events far outside the control of the company in a given quarter.

Berkshire...will take a $2.2B hit this quarter...but shareholders will not have to worry about future surprises from this event. In fact, they will benefit as a result.

The motley fool illuminates for us how super-catastrophes are a business opportunity for reinsurers, which the "owners in these public companies" understand. They can't be getting all squeamish about massive loss of life, see? There's a lot of money to be made. The "surprise" factor virtually guarantees a single quarter earnings hit; but after that, the sky's the limit. You understand?

That's what happened.

Theoretically, if a "super-catastrophe" is not a surprise though, because the business owner has been involved in the planning and execution through subsidiaries, then the events will not be very "far outside" the company's control. The entire hit is expected and taken in one quarter, knowing that everything will improve going forward. 

That's not what happened. 

It was simply Buffet's GENIUS to understand something like the impact of 9/11, in advance. OK? 

Again, friends, it had absolutely nothing to do with planning and execution. The troublesome details referenced above were long buried as part of the Information War. They are gone now. If the global villager can't find it easily, and the teevee never mentions it, then It Doesn't Exist except as a Conspiracy Theory. So it can't hurt you. Everybody calm down.


Obviously, we don't know what Jack Wheeler was working on at Mitre. We can only sift the clues and speculate. But after twenty years of online research, IMO spooks have been fucking with the internet and everyone on it the entire time -- picking their winners and losers, burying inconvenient content and gassing up their pets whether on the payroll or not.

The narrative formed 1-2 weeks after Wheeler's death included his concerns about cyber warfare.

Longtime friend and fellow West Point graduate Richard Radez said that in an e-mail the day after Christmas, Mr. Wheeler wrote he believed the nation wasn't sufficiently prepared for cyber warfare.
"This was something that had preoccupied him over the last couple of years," Mr. Radez said.

One should always consider the details floating around after an important surprise event. Anything oft repeated is on purpose. It could be narrative seeding, or messages to interested parties, or both. In any event, all major and many minor voices will be coordinated to advance the preferred narrative.

So it's not by accident that Radez floated the idea that Wheeler had been worried for some time about cyber warfare. It's just a detail, one of many. But the media knew to take the torch and relay it widely. After all, Wheeler being "preoccupied" with "cyber warfare" is sufficiently vague for general narrative seeding, while also obliquely linking the worrisome "preoccupation" to Mitre. This message would reach friend and foe alike, like blood in the water.

"Cyber warfare" is a euphemistic description for privacy intrusions that are likely far, far beyond our ability to imagine (but will try). Who knows what level of technology exists -- a hyper-dimensional spiritual and technological war that is largely invisible but manifesting as thoughts and events we experience through technology?

Here's a thought...

In our post Alien Fail, we concluded that the aliens are really psychopaths. Using secret technology and predictive programming, they elaborately devised the alien-themed facade over many decades. In reality, we face a spiritual and inter-dimensional problem dealing at a minimum with entities that appear to be human but lack important human qualities. (They of course know this since they constructed the deception to hide it.)

The Lancet recently published a paper about a rare condition, supposedly affecting 75 known people. Despite the condition being extremely rare, the paper's findings are receiving widespread coverage. The affected people see demons in the faces of others.

Why are we hearing about this now?

Will we soon have a new Victim Class of people? Demon people?

They're not demons you're just mentally ill and a bigot if you can see them?

More inclusivity needed?

But maybe people would notice the demons clustered in halls of power, universities, think tanks, celebrities, DEI LGBQT++++, influencers, musicians and all manner of STARS?

It might get a little hard for the demons to claim the mantle of victimhood after riding the bull all these years?

And what if the demons were also living in your towns? In your hospitals, court houses, police departments, schools, businesses?

What would happen if more and more people developed PMO and started seeing demons everywhere?

That would be a shit-show, huh?

Kissinger just died aged 100. Warren Buffet, born in 1930, is still alive. No turbo cancer, no nothing! He's touring the floor, writing letters to his shareholders --- everything's good. His right hand man Charlie died at 99. Do. They. Do it.

Why do many wealthy and powerful people like Henry Kissinger and Warren Buffett live to ripe old age, while we work like slaves and bury each other? How many species of humans are here? More than one? Is there a secret?

What's going on with the sky, the sun, the moon? Some people think it looks different. Who controls technology and weather technology? Does weather modification keep conditions on terra comfortable for certain secret life forms, at the expense of other life forms, like human beings? Have a lot of bad things happened to a lot of human beings, while others seem to skate? 

The Skating Minister

What if something changed that caused one secret species to suffer a few setbacks compared to humans that have suffered countless setbacks? What if something made the veil between two dimensions grow thin and disappear, causing humans to develop PMO? Would the secret species try to get ahead of that problem before life got clearer for humans?

Would they fail and the tables turn?

Just speculating, friends.  

We've come this far. Praise God, remember Jack Wheeler, and hold the line.

Wheeler files - part one

twelfthbough - Thu, 04/04/2024 - 18:37

Long time readers (and hopefully others) may recall John "Jack" Wheeler, who was brutally murdered at the very end of December 2010. Miraculously (and we mean it), a hazardous waste worker spotted Wheeler's body being dumped into a Wilmington, DE landfill on 12/31/10...

FOILING THE PLAN to use his disappearance as a narrative anchor point? We think so. Based on information available, his body was never meant to be found. A missing and presumed-murdered Wheeler might have formed the corner of a narrative frame about how such-and-such a false-flag disaster came to pass. What kind of disaster? Well, that's the interesting thing about Wheeler. His trajectory touches so many chords that have been resonating back through time and unto the present.

The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. Genesis 4, KJV

Wheeler's death became a cottage industry, spinning teevee documentaries and internet theories. One possibly useful thing I learned: holding one shoe is a Masonic tradition symbolizing taking or breaking an oath. The odd detail about Wheeler "clutching one tasseled loafer" has been consistently documented. Was he disoriented? Maybe. Or, having been engaged with dark actors and fighting for his life, he took his shoe off around security cameras to convey a message to someone?

Here my goal is to connect Wheeler to several events and dangerous people who might have considered him a threat to their long-term goals. These people would also possess the means, motive and opportunity to kill him and get away with it. Everything here can be found elsewhere. I am compiling it for my own records and out of respect for Jack Wheeler, an honorable man who accepted very difficult assignments.

Some highlights from his bio October 2009:

Served under Reagan, Poppy Bush and W; but is probably most known for spearheading the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and MADD. 

 Wheeler (far right) with Reagan, 1981. White House photo, courtesy of the Wheeler family.
  • Graduated West Point 1966
  • Served in Vietnam
  • "While on active duty, he authored the first Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual and the analysis supporting the President's decision that the U.S. will not use biologicals."
  • 1978 - 1986 worked at the SEC, Assistant General Counsel, Special Counsel to Chairman, and finally Secretary of the SEC; worked on insider trading investigations
  • 2005: Special Assistant to Acting Assistant Secretary of AF "Principal tasks included standing up Cyberspace Forces and placing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links into the hands of groundfighters in combat."
  • 2009: consultant October 2009 to the acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics regarding tankers and other issues."
  • At time of death, he was consulting part-time for Mitre Corporation
Jack Wheeler knew a lot of powerful people, and a lot of classified things. 
Bruce Gorcyca, a whistleblower, has many writings online. At least one references Wheeler. 
For example: In my last conversation with Wheeler in 2011 [sic] I was advised that he planned to expose something he was once paid very well to cover up for George Bush Sr. after suffering an apparent “guilt attack” and unexplained “betrayal”. He claimed amongst other things that he had evidence of Cheney’s Enron adventure as well as some evidence that he also shorted shares of American and United Airlines “about 10 days before 911” through one of his many off-shore accounts. (I only knew of the two used for the Enron deal). 

Gorcyca's letter references Cheney, Hillary Clinton, Biden, Hunter Biden, deals in China, secret Panama bank accounts at Morgan & Morgan used for hiding and laundering money, and many other things besides. Gorcyca claims he and Wheeler were set to meet in January 2011, in China; but of course Wheeler never showed because he was murdered on 12/30/2010. To recap, we understand from Gorcyca: 

  • Wheeler once covered something up for Bush Sr, sometime in the past, and he was paid well for it;
  • But someone betrayed him (more recently, circa 2009-2010), and he suffered from guilt;
  • And to resolve this guilt and betrayal, he planned to expose the thing he once covered up;
  • But he was murdered before any of that could happen.

"Anyway, if you want to know about the devils in Washington and on Wall Street, an angel is not going to be your best source." - Bruce Gorcyca


Having served in both Bush administration, Wheeler knew Cheney.

Dick Cheney was VP during 9/11/01. Insider trading happened on 9/11: American Airlines and United Airlines stocks.

Wheeler previously held an extensive high level position at the SEC and investigated insider trading, so it could have been that. But there's more.

In August 2007, Dick Cheney reportedly became infuriated when his alleged secret chain of command got exposed during the Minot-Barksdale Bent Spear incident.  Either Wheeler or his boss (and West Point classmate) Michael Wynne ordered the stand-down of all B52 flights after a plane carrying live nuclear missiles landed at Barksdale, a nexus AFB for Middle East operations. The incident and stand-down drew attention which revealed the secret chain of command.
  • Vice President Dick Cheney
    • Chief of Staff David Addington
  • Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne
  • Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley
    • Gen. Lawrence Stuztriem, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Strategic Studies Group - CHECKMATE
    • Dr. Lani Kass, ex-Israeli Air Force, Cyber Warfare, US Air Force, CHECKMATE
  • Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, Commander 8th Air Force, Barksdale Air Force Base
  • Col. Bruce Emig, Commander 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base (relieved of command after nuclear incident)
  • Maj. Gen. Stephen Goldfein, Commander Air Warfare Center, Nellis Air Force Base

An excerpt we linked to in another post (original link defunct) describes:

Wheeler was the assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force in the George W. Bush Administration. It was the Secretary of the Air Force [Wynne - ed.] who discovered that Richard Cheney had set up an alternative chain of command to the nuclear weapons wing of the AF. In the process, six minutemen missiles armed with nuclear warheads were secretly transported from Minot AFB to Barksdale AFB. The later is the chief staging base for the Middle East war. The alarm system for the weapons was deactivated for the transport, something that not even the base commander could authorize. The orders had to have come from above. Many point to Cheney. Before the warheads could be flown via B-52 to the Iraq/Iran theater, the Secretary of the Air Force ordered the stand-down of all B-52 flights. When he discovered the alternative chain of command to Cheney, he fired all military personnel who were involved. Cheney was said to have been livid. The Secretary ordered an investigation of what the AF press release called an oversight, and 70 enlisted men and 5 officers were removed from the Minot nuclear system.

Also see a variety of links here, some of which still actually work.

Six involved airmen quickly suffered untimely deaths. By June 2008, Wheeler, Wynne, and Moseley were all forced out. It's not known how Wynne and Moseley were embroiled in the debacle, whether willingly or not. But evidently, an alternate chain of command existed and these two were allegedly at the top of it:

Dick Cheney and his Chief of Staff David Addington. Tight.
Addington, little lamb struggling before congress re: torture memos.

We found this information via Wayne Madsen back in 2007. You can also read more details about it here, here, and here and surely many other places. Note that the fully loaded B-52 sat on the tarmac unguarded for 15 hours at Minot, then flew to Barksdale, LA and sat there for another nine hours before someone noticed the live missiles. 
Very Importantly, and we recall this detail also when it happened -- SIX nuclear missiles left Minot, and FIVE were reported received at Barksdale. (Initial news reports frequently contain important details that morph or vanish with subsequent reports. The links below are long broken, naturally.) 
Furthermore, it is worth considering that the initial Military Times report on September 5 reported five nuclear missiles being found at Barksdale AFB. This was updated to six in a revised article by the same reporter on September 10. According to Madsen, his intelligence sources said only five advanced nuclear cruise missiles were found at Barksdale, after six left Minot AFB.

That's a pesky and troubling detail, the difference between five and six. The more one looks at sources, the more one sees this discrepancy. Six left Minot, and five arrived in Barksdale because of an undisclosed stop along the way? No no no, only five left Minot; that's why five arrived in Barksdale? Or was it six left Minot, and six arrived in Barksdale, as the official report says? Then where did five come from at the very beginning? 
Which one is correct, friends? Might something have happened to one of the missiles during those many hours the B-52 sat on the two tarmacs, or perhaps on a third undisclosed tarmac, unguarded? Could it be, to this very day, ONE MISSILE IS MISSING? Who on earth could you trust to tell the truth about that, if the truth has not come forth in the intervening 17 Years of Official Coverage? 
Useful discrepancies like this are found in every narrative sandcastle. They are loose threads that can be used to tie up whatever version of events might be needed later, at the crucial moment. 
For example, here's one eleven-year-old theory we found in The Local in Sweden.

Very interesting. The series of articles written by John Schiffman in the Philadelphia Inquirer remain at large. When the trash spotter discovered Wheeler's body, it closed off any narrative option that required him to remain missing.

We all use prisms to observe reality around us, and people must be willing to look through new prisms to comprehend what has happened to us. If you spent all day every day researching, the scale of deception would still remain beyond the human mind's grasp. But we have to try. 

North Dakota happens to be rated a ZERO on having state laws in place to constrain corruption: no rules, no ethics oversight mechanism, no disclosure laws. Minot Air Force Base (Minot, ND) is home to a B52 nuclear wing and thousands of acres of underground missiles. It's all right next door to Communist Canada.
Wait for something to go wrong.
For all we know, the B52 flew to Canada in August 2007 and left a missile there before continuing to Barksdale. Who knows? Multiple young Minot airmen suffered tragic and deadly accidents within weeks. 
Governor Doug Bergham, via Chinese funding, reportedly owns about half the real estate in Fargo, ND, and it's known that China has bought up a lot of property in North Dakota. According to Tore Maras (starting around 1:26) the endgame goes something like this. The culture will be driven apart to the point of no return. "Here's how it's going to go. Your own nation will nuke you, and blame it on China." And they will hang this on the fact that China owns land all around these missile silos. Which appears to be true.
Remember: an alternate chain of command existed once, not that long ago. Wheeler knew what happened during the Minot-Barksdale Bent Spear. He would be a dangerous witness should that missing nuke ever turn up used.

As noted above, Addington was Cheney's Chief of Staff and named in the alternate chain of command.

In 2013, Russia named Addington as one of 18 people barred from Russia in a mirrored response to the Magnitsky Act (passed in 2011) targeting 18 Russians. 

LOOK at the list. Addington #1, followed by John Yoo at DOJ, two commanders at Guantanamo, NINE lawfare practitioners from SDNY including Preet Bharara, four DEA special agents and one FBI special agent. 

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow banned 18 U.S. citizens on Saturday from entering Russia in retaliation for a U.S. move to ban 18 Russians from the United States under a new law penalizing Russian citizens suspected of taking part in human rights abuses.
...The Americans barred from Russia under a law adopted in retaliation included members of the administration of former U.S. President George W. Bush whom the Russian Foreign Ministry linked to torture, as well as officials involved in the prosecution of Russians now in U.S. prisons.
Below is the list of 18 Americans, issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry:
Individuals alleged to be involved in the use and legalization of torture and indefinite confinement of prisoners - the “Guantanamo list”:
1. David Spears Addington - Chief of Staff of the U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney (2005-2009);
2. John Choon Yoo - Legal adviser at the U.S. Department of Justice (2001-2003);
3. Geoffrey D. Miller - Commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, which administers the U.S. military detention centers at the U.S. Guantanamo Naval Base on Cuba (2002-2003)
4. Jeffrey Harbeson - Commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo (2010-2012)
Individuals alleged to be involved in abuse of Russian citizens’ human rights abroad:
5. Jed Saul Rakoff - U.S. District Judge for Southern District of New York;
6. Preetinder S. Bharara - U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
7. Michael J. Garcia - Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
8. Brendan R. McGuire - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
9. Anjan S. Sahni - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
10. Christian R. Everdell - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
11. Jenna Minicucci Dabbs - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
12. Christopher L. Lavigne - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
13. Michael Max Rosensaft - Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York;
14. Louis J. Milione - Senior Special Agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration;
15. Sam Gaye - Senior special Agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration;
16. Robert F. Zachariasiewicz - Special Agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration;
17. Derek S. Odney - Special Agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration;
18. Gregory A. Coleman - Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation;
  • Isn't it interesting that eleven years later, the corruption of the DOJ and SDNY is on full display?
  • Isn't it interesting that David Addington is number one on that Russian Foreign Ministry list of: Individuals alleged to be involved in the use and legalization of torture and indefinite confinement of prisoners - the “Guantanamo list”
  • Isn't it interesting that the Magnitsky Act has reverberated around the world like a giant gong?

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false."-William J. Casey, CIA Director, February 1981
Bush Sr and Casey, 1981 - Reagan Library

Wheeler lived in Delaware, home of the Biden Crime Family. At the time of Wheeler's death, Beau Biden had just been re-elected as Delaware Attorney General. AG Beau Biden and Newark PD requested the Wheeler warrants be sealed, to "protect the investigation."
As we covered in some detail at the time, the police investigators treated Wheeler's widow and family like criminals from the outset. Confiscated credit cards were used to book $3000 tickets from NY to Madrid.  Some theories suggest those tickets were purchased by one of the suspected hitmen, Andrew Robert Levene. That is certainly possible. We have no idea who booked the tickets. But we do know that the authorities who confiscated the credit cards would know who booked the tickets. Yet, it has not been disclosed since 2010. Protecting the investigation, see?

Joe Biden takes a mock oath of office from George H. W. Bush, accompanied by his family in Capitol Hill in Washington on Jan. 3, 1985. and Hunter Biden hold the "good book" for this oath.

That sure looks like an upside down cross.Joe Biden: mocking the oath of office since 1985.


At the time of his vicious murder in December 2010, Jack Wheeler might have possessed important details regarding current events at the time, including:

  •     Haiti earthquake (January 2010) and fallout. 
  •     Big pharma & government collaboration to deliver vaccines in the wake of 2009 pig flu psyop. 
  •     BP oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. 
  •     Victor Bout, international weapons trafficker, landing in a US prison.

Also happening on 12/31/10 (the day Wheeler was murdered) - 5000 birds fell dead from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas, about 20 miles from Little Rock AFB. Here's an article dated 1/4/11 about this and similar events, casting about for explanations and landing on the New Madrid fault as likely cause. 

"Well, that is exactly what many seismologists now fear....So to think that “it can’t happen” in the United States is just being totally naive.
Let us hope and pray that a devastating earthquake does not hit the New Madrid fault any time soon, because such an event could completely wipe out our economy. The U.S. economy is already teetering on the brink of disaster, and all it would take is one major blow to bring the entire house of cards crashing down.
Just remember what happened in Haiti."


Here we are, fourteen years later, reliving similar events. The Tavistock method of stress and relief  continues and makes people malleable.

source: thespectator.ngBLACK SWAN EVENT?

Could any/some/most of these events be manufactured crises used in the PROBLEM-REACTION-SOLUTION game? Are you primed to do whatever the experts demand after all these years of REPETITIVE IMPENDING DOOM gnawing on your last nerve like a demonic rodent? 

These narratives... it's like groundhog day, forever. programming: Groundhog Day, the movie: A self-absorbed weatherman gets stuck in a time loop and has to repeat Groundhog Day over and over until he gets it right.

This movie has been playing a very long time. Many have lost their lives along the way, like Jack Wheeler. Add to him the dead scientists and other witnesses; plus victims of human trafficking, wars, "natural" disasters, bogus medicine, pollution, drugs, crime, and disease. The misery touches everyone. 

The authorities would like you to assign blame on all their favorite no-no people. Let's get it right, friends. It's the deep state death cult playing God with all of us.

The Magnitsky Act (subject of our last post) turned out to be very useful in seizing assets, just as intended by Team Death Cult. A great tool, Very Handy, depending on who wields it.

Let's peek at the OFAC list. Here's one example from 12/11/2023. Ajmal Rahmani, his father Mir Rahman Rahmani, and roughly four dozen related companies were added to the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list. 

The same day, 12/11/23, Kabul Now reports a detailed story: US sanctions Afghan political family at the heart of decades of corruption.

We learn that OFAC sanctions former speaker of Afghan parliament and his son on charges of transnational corruption and embezzlement. (TCOs. Know thy enemy.) They are barred from making financial transactions, and their assets are subject to confiscation.

The Rahmani family was one of the largest contractors of the US Army and the former government of Afghanistan. During the two decades of international involvement in Afghanistan, the Rahmanis were awarded contracts to procure fuel for the Afghanistan Security and Defense Forces (ANDSF), the funding for which came directly from the US Government. The US Government says the Rahmanis engaged in tactics to rig the bidding process and inflate fuel prices. In 2014, the Rahmanis and other companies involved in fuel business colluded to drive up prices in the US-funded contracts for as much as $200 million.

  • Procuring fuel for the military? Yes. 
  • Colluding with others to drive up prices in US-funded contracts? Yes. 
  • Stealing our tax dollars? Yes. 

They also massively under-delivered on the over-priced fuel contracts, and imported staggering amounts of tax-free fuel by bribing customs officials and forging documents, and then sold it privately.

In addition to the Rahmanis and their holdings in Afghanistan, the OFAC sanctions cover dozens of foreign companies in Europe, the Middle East, and Austria, believed to be tied to the family. Among them are 23 German, eight Cypriot, six Emirati, two Austrian, one Dutch and one Bulgarian company.

Well isn't he small and harmless-looking.... hands folded like a choir boy.Hard to believe he's a massively corrupt criminal.

More from the Kabul Now story (links removed):

We were able to locate at least one legal entity in the United States that is linked to Ajmal Rahmani. The Afghanistan-US Democratic Peace and Prosperity Council [DPPC] is a U.S. non-profit registered in March 2020 in Delaware. According to its website [DEFUNCT WEBSITE is - Ed.], it is led by ‘reformers in Afghanistan’s Parliament-in-exile and Afghan-Americans who believe strongly in the benefits of an alliance between the people of Afghanistan and America.”
According to information released by the U.S. Department of Justice, the organization declared at the time of its incorporation that it was financed by Ajmal Rahmani and controlled by a man named Martin Rahmani who is listed as its Executive Director. Martin Amin Rahmani is an American citizen who is a partner at Victory Six Advisors, a consulting firm based in Washington D.C. The address listed for the council and Victory Six Advisors are the same, 800 Maine Ave, SW, Washington, DC.
In April 2021, the interesting Foreign Lobby Report published this update:
Afghanistan: Jake Perry + Partners distributed a white paper on behalf of the nonprofit Afghanistan-U.S. Democratic Peace and Prosperity Council (DPPC) regarding a notification from US Army Contracting Command for the purchase of bulk ground fuel for the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces. The report [white paper - ed.] raises allegations of illegal activities by the Afghan forces and recommends that the US turn to “legitimate and qualified” businesses in Afghanistan. The council is funded by an Afghan businessman, Mohammad Gul Raoufi. Jake Perry is a former top adviser to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). His is one of four firms registered to lobby for the council.
“The DPPC strongly recommends that the U.S. Army Contracting Command limits its engagement on the Bulk Ground Fuel contract to companies that are rigorously vetted, have a demonstrated ability to and history of consistently and reliably performing the scope of work and are committed to a contracting process free from corruption and illegality,” the white paper states. The council is headed by executive director Martin Rahmani in Washington. Three Afghan lawmakers sit on its advisory board: Mir Haider Afzaly, Naheed Farid and Haji Ajmal Rahmani.

Recap: Several years before landing on the Treasury's SDN list for massive corruption, the Rahmani-controlled DPPC gets a uniparty lobbyist group (source: Open Secrets) to disseminate a white paper for them bemoaning the terrible corruption plaguing bulk fuel contracts in Afghanistan (PROBLEM). The paper recommend sticking with "rigorously vetted" companies (SOLUTION).

TO BE CLEAR, the white paper goes into some detail about the difficulty and challenges of performing in Afghanistan. These contracts pose a practically irresistible challenge: so much fuel... extreme logistical difficulties...   little oversight... all backed by US taxpayers. In fact, the chaotic environment provides so many excuses for failure that corrupt people are drawn to it like moths to a flame.

One can extrapolate which rigorously vetted companies, exactly, the DPPC might recommend. Except they don't suggest any, because they only want to provide good lives for the People of Afghanistan. 

DPPC EXISTS TO PROMOTE: ...policies and initiatives that better the lives of the Afghan people and hold the Afghan government accountable to provide basic services, protect human rights, adhere to democratic principles, and put an end to corruption. Our interest in the Bulk Ground Fuel contract is to promote anti-corruption efforts and peace in Afghanistan by ensuring that the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) maintains its operational capabilities and readiness through an adequate supply of fuel. Having a strong, capable and ready ANDSF means a sustainable peace in the country and prosperity for the people of Afghanistan who have suffered without for so long.


Isn't that nice? It's so nice. A staggering amount of fuel has already been supplied. Inexplicably, still no peace and prosperity. It's just a never-ending gravy train for some, and never-ending misery for others.

Along the way with these stories percolating on the back burners, some global villager might have got a garlicky whiff and asked xymself or xyrself, "Uhh, who is Ajmal Rahmani anyway? Is he the lucky guy whose family grew very wealthy during the decades of War in Afghanistan?"

The Death Cult presciently anticipated these questions. And the answer is NO. Wrong guy. Ajmal is not lucky. 

This is just one of dozens of this same story about poor Ajmal and his family, with this specific touching photo. 

Ajmal the Refugee

The story circulated widely in EARLY 2022, almost two years before Ajmal appeared on the SDN list. It's almost like they knew he would eventually come into the spotlight in a bad way (due to the massive history of decades-long corruption), so they knit together this flimsy media blanket and threw it out there.

After leaving Afghanistan a year ago, Ajmal Rahmani believed he had found a haven of peace in Ukraine. This week, he and his family had to flee again -- this time to Poland to the sounds of Russian bombs. "I run from one war, come to another country and another war starts. Very bad luck," Rahmani told AFP shortly after crossing into Poland.

So this would be three years ago (2021) that he fled to Ukraine, then fled again to Poland, to the sound of Russian bombs of course. The family had to walk the last 19 miles, if you can believe that.  

Rahmani, who is in his 40s, said he worked for NATO in Afghanistan for 18 years at Kabul airport.
He refuels planes for a living... what's the big deal?
Before that "I had a good life in Afghanistan, I had a private house, I had a private car, I had a good salary," said Rahmani. "I sold my car, my house, my everything. I lost everything," he said. But he added: "nothing is better than my love, than my family life".

Rahmani said he struggled to get a visa to leave Afghanistan and decided to go to Ukraine because it was the only country that would take him in. They set up home in Odessa -- a Black Sea port city. Four days ago, when Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, they had to leave everything again and travelled the 1,110 kilometres to the border.
He decided to leave the country four months before the US withdrawal because he received threats and was so scared he kept his children out of school.

You see? He's just a poor guy who had a nice job at NATO, and a house and a car; and he lost it all because of threats. (We might have some half-truths in here, friends.)

Not Ajmal and his children.Pictured: The harrowing plight of children maimed in Afghanistan by the thousands of land mines scattered across the country after decades of war, Daily Mail 8/21/2015
(The same decades that the Rahmani family was making a killing.)
MEANWHILE, Ajmal Rahmani has lived mostly in Germany since leaving Afghanistan AFTER the Taliban's return in 2021. From the Kabul Now story:
The family came to public light in 2018 after both the father and son ran in parliamentary elections. Many observers noted at the time the influx of businessmen turned politicians in the electoral race, which brought about a parliament driven by personal interest and corruption. The election was considered one of the most fraudulent contests in the country’s short history of fragile flirtation with democratic ideas. The Rahmanis not only made it to the house, but the father soon became the speaker in a process that was believed to be corrupt. OFAC now confirms those suspicions, reporting that Rahmani paid millions of dollars to other parliament members to secure their vote in the house. According to OFAC, Ajmal Rahmani, the son, paid at least $1.6 million to members of the election commission to win a seat in the elections.
According to our information, Mr. Rahmani, the father, resides in Turkey, where he has major business holdings. Social media pictures also show him at COP28, the annual UN conference on climate change that is ongoing in Dubai, the UAE. His son, Ajmal Rahmani, has lived mostly in Germany since leaving Afghanistan after the Taliban’s return to power in the summer of 2021.

"Ajmal the Refugee" Narrative? Use Before 12/11/2023. Current Status: EXPIRED.
In December 2023,  Ajmal Rahmani and Mir Rahman Rahmani appear on the SDN list with their forty-something companies around the world -- assets seized.
Two weeks after they end up on the SDN list, their "project in Germany" is halted.
According to German media, the municipality of Ehningen in southwest Germany has halted the development of a project owned by the Rahmani family.
As per the German media report by Taz, The Ocean Group, intended to build a residential complex in partnership with its German partners in the village of “Quantum” in Ehningen.
The Ocean Group is owned by Ajmal Rahmani, the son of Mir Rahman Rahmani. Mir Rahman Rahmani was the Speaker before August 2021 in the Afghan House of Representatives, and his son, Ajmal Rahmani, was a member.

Trouble in Ehningen... (translated, image accompanies article)

"Quantum Gardens: In 2021, the Ocean Group acquired the approximately 9 hectare former IBM company premises in Ehningen"

US sanctions against Rahmani empire: Because of corruption allegations against the investor, the future is now unclear, not only of the quantum laboratory in Ehningen, whose sponsors include IBM and the Fraunhofer Institute. Even if the Rahmanis deny the allegations: IBM is not allowed to rent the quantum laboratory from them - or has to face sanctions itself.

Ajmal Rahmani, warlord's son and former Afghan member of parliament, bought the entire site of the previous German headquarters from IBM in 2021 through his Ocean Group in order to develop the Quantum Gardens urban district here - a residential and technology campus on which this was also the case last April opened quantum laboratory Q.AX – short for Quantum AI & Experience Center. IBM had already installed the first quantum computer in Europe in Ehningen in 2021 in order to advance research into quantum computers in Germany together with the Fraunhofer Society.

Following US sanctions imposed on December 11th over corruption allegations against Rahmani and his father, local newspapers reported that the municipality of Ehningen had put the ongoing development plan process on hold. In addition, neither the US company nor the German research institute is allowed to do business with the Rahmanis or their companies; otherwise they must also expect sanctions. The Q.AX may have to move out of the buildings that IBM has rented from the Ocean Group.

Since the bankruptcy of the Düsseldorf property developer Development Partner in August, construction work on the future IBM headquarters in Ehningen, which was actually supposed to be completed in 2021, has been stagnating. Initial discussions about a possible takeover of this developer by an investor have begun, it was said after the opening of insolvency proceedings at the beginning of November.

Also see (translated): Corruption allegations against investor: Future of the quantum laboratory in Ehningen unclear
Bribery, competition fraud and tax evasion: These are the allegations made by the American government against the Afghan investor Ajmal Rahmani. This could have serious consequences for the quantum laboratory in Ehningen.
Haji Ajmal the Democracy-Loving Entrepreneur -- able to buy IBM's entire German headquarters site in 2021 to develop an AI lab and "Urban Campus"
The future was actually supposed to begin in Ehningen (Böblingen district): with a research focus on quantum computing and Europe's only commercial quantum computer, the quantum laboratory Q.AX was opened in the spring. Former Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) advocated that the American IT company IBM bring the megacomputer to Ehningen. This is where the German research and development site of the US giant is located. But now that corruption allegations have been made against the investor in the project, a lot is at stake at the Ehningen location.Military and Politics: Rahmani Empire in AfghanistanThe Q.AX research laboratory was made possible primarily by Ajmal Rahmani, an investor from Afghanistan. He bought the entire former IBM site in order to develop the Quantum Gardens urban district, where the Q.AX is also located.
The journalist Emran Feroz knows the story of the Rahmanis. According to Feroz, people usually associate the Rahmani family with father Mir Rahmani and his son Ajmal Rahmani. "Mir Rahmani was one of the most important contractors for the US military in Afghanistan, which means that he worked very closely with the US troops there, especially in logistical and military terms, and as a result became a multimillionaire very early on," explains Afghanistan expert.With all this money that has been collected over the years, the Rahmanis were able to buy their way into politics. Until recently, Mir Rahmani was President of the Afghan Parliament.The trigger for the tumult in the Afghan parliament in 2018 is said to have been the Rahmanis' purchased mandates. In 2020 they made international headlines thanks to the data leak known as the Cyprus Papers: They revealed that the Rahmanis had bought European passports. Afterwards they did their business in Ehningen, for example.US government raises allegations of corruptionThe money to buy the IBM site in Ehningen presumably comes from corrupt dealings in Afghanistan. The Rahmanis are said to have sold fuel to the American military at inflated prices. In some cases, deliveries failed to materialize. Bribery, eliminating competitors, tax evasion - the American government is now accusing them of all of this. It has imposed sanctions on the Rahmani empire.
Ajmal Rahmani wants to take action against this, explains his spokesman Klaus Fockenberg: "Mr. Rahmani categorically rejects these baseless and misrepresented allegations. That is why a team of lawyers has now been immediately commissioned to refute these allegations in both Germany and the USA - and Mr. Rahmani is very confident about that."
Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) bought "golden passports" from Cyprus at a cost of $2.5M each. (For fun reading and graphics, see this interactive page about the Cyprus Papers.) About 2500 people did this from 2017-2019, and a few of course blazed the trail earlier. For example, Ajmal's father, Mir Rahman Rahmani, had his wife and three daughters' golden passports approved on 1/12/2017, and his own approved on 7/3/2017. 
So we can't say for sure, but if his family's applications were approved in January 2017, Mir Rahman Rahmani probably started looking into this in late 2016.

What was happening in late 2016.....

matrix without end

twelfthbough - Fri, 03/01/2024 - 18:02

Others have no doubt linked Alexiei Navalny, Bill Browder, and the Magnitsky Act. Nevertheless, there are a few nodes in this long, drawn-out death-cult unravelling saga that I must document; and Browder is one of them. 

Bill Browder came on the radar here fourteen years ago.

S. 1039: Symbolizing and Evoking Serious Concerns About Russian Badness

He was obviously deeply entrenched and able to direct powerful political resources.

Recap: At that time we learned that Browder teamed up with various people in congress to punish Putin's Russia because Bill's good friend and colleague who no one ever heard of before, Sergei Magnitsky (an accountant, NOT a lawyer as almost always reported), died in prison under suspicious circumstances. [We looked into Magnitsky's death in detail here.  Also see: dead friends of Bill, where we noted that Edmund Safra, Edourd Stern, and Sergei Magnitsky -- all close associates of Bill Browder -- died under suspicious circumstances.]

Mysteriously, after the previously unknown man's death in prison, Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, and Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary, launched into action and prepared a list of Russians to punish. (Analogous: Hillary interceding for unknown woman, Laura Silsby, when she got pinched trying to traffic children out of Haiti.) Via the Magnitsky Act, the US would revoke visas, freeze assets, and investigate the targets for money laundering.

Precedent-setting legislation.

To be even more dramatic, the list named senior officials of Russia's Interior Ministry (equivalent to the FBI) and the Russian Tax Service, plus some judges and other people. 

It was quite specific and perfectly insane legislation over this one random guy, Serge, whose death went viral before that was even a thing. So naturally it became law.

The Magnitsky Act took off around the world because powerful people could use it to target and punish their enemies by seizing assets and revoking visas. What A Tool! All thanks to Bill, the ringleader.

image source:

Thank You, Bill. By 2016, a Global Magnitsky Act was passed. 


Browder considers Vladimir Putin his arch nemesis. He constantly regurgitates claims to his global media pals about Putin imperiling the world. You can easily confirm this yourself. He's been at it for years.


On 7/16/18, Trump and Putin held a meeting in Helsinki, Finland followed by a joint press conference. Read the transcript. A reporter asked about Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether Putin would consider extraditing the 12 Russian officials that were indicted by a US Grand Jury subsequent to the Mueller "investigation." In his reply, Putin mentioned Bill Browder.

For instance, we can bring up Mr. [Bill] Browder. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 million in Russia. They have paid no taxes — neither in Russia or the United States. And yet the money escaped the country.
They were transferred to the United States. They sent a huge amount of money — $400 million — as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
While that's their personal choice — it might have been legal, the contribution itself — but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have some reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions, and we have an interest in questioning them.
That could be a first step and we can also extend it. Options abound, and they all can be found in an appropriate legal framework.


Again, it's complicated. I don't claim to understand it all, but you can look into what happened. It seemed to be a financial false flag, and due to THE RULE OF LAW, the Russian government's case ended when Serge unfortunately died in prison under suspicious circumstances. Benefitting Bill, who then went on to accuse Putin for the next fourteen years. 


In 2022 Biden permanently reauthorized the Global Magnitsky Act. Kind of a strange thing to do for a massively corrupt ringleader himself, but what do we know. 


THEN (meaning now), Alexiei Navalny has also reportedly died in prison under suspicious circumstances. Guess who he was a close associate of? Bill Browder. 

What are the odds?

In this interview from last week, 2/20/24, Browder talks all about his good friend Alexiei Navalny. If you don't want to listen (about 13 minutes), I understand so I took the time to recap his remarks:

We learn that Bill was surprised at Navalny's death. It hit him like a "punch in the gut... it was intellectually not surprising but emotionally it was very surprising," and Bill is still trying to process a world in which Navalny is dead, which is hard for him to even imagine.

Bill doesn't know what happened, and we will probably never know EXACTLY, but he does know that Putin has a very, very long list of dead enemies (he names Boris Nemtsov, Anna Politkovskaya, and Alexander Litvinenko as examples); and he (Putin) goes around the world killing anybody he doesn't like. He tried to kill Alexiei once before with (nerve agent) Novichok in 2020. It didn't work, but for whatever reason now was the time to kill Alexiei. It's all Putin, you understand. There's no question in anybody's mind, really. He executed a high level political assassination of a prisoner in his custody. 

Bill hasn't had contact with Alexiei since he was put in jail, but before that they were regular allies on a bunch of issues surrounding Putin and Russian government corruption. "Good friends, good allies." Alexiei was a very robust, large fit man who doesn't drop dead at age 47 unless the Russian authorities have something to do with it.

And it's so close to the Russian elections, which we can't even call elections because, you know, "there are no elections in Russia." Everybody in opposition is either dead, or in jail, or exiled. Alexiei was the most popular politician in Russia, and Putin is not a politician he's a dictator. He uses state power to force people into submission. 

In contrast, Alexiei won the "hearts and minds" of many people in Russia, especially young people. He would have gotten, like, 90% of the vote. Why would anyone vote for an old, kleptocratic dictator who only knows how to punish people, when they could have a "young, optimistic man who believes in freedom, democracy, and wants to stamp out corruption." 

He was SO ATTRACTIVE. Young people paid attention to his three line tweets. This was "deeply scary to Putin." If Putin ever lost legitimacy he'd lose everything, go to jail and probably die. Putin is just so scared. He Gets More Scared Every Single Day. !

We can only speculate why Putin waited this long to kill Alexiei, but it's obvious to Bill that Putin killed him. This could definitely backfire on Putin, so he's going to do everything he can to "suppress, attack and terrorize" the people in Russia so that it doesn't. Who knows how it will play out. The "fact that Putin killed Navalny, and his charismatic, attractive wife steps in to take over... that was probably unexpected from Putin's side..." It's impossible to say what will happen next, but Bill is certain that Navalny will plague Putin in one way or another for a long time to come.

There's one thing left that will "level the playing field" and "create some pain for Putin." When the (Ukraine) war started, "we (Western governments) froze roughly $300 billion dollars of Russian central bank reserves that were held in the West." That happened a week after the war started. Bill and many others think that money should be confiscated and used for the defense and reconstruction of Ukraine. That should happen now, and that should be called the Navalny Act. "That would give Putin two fingers in the eye." Yeah, that would show him.

When Bill was tirelessly campaigning for the Magnitsky Act, he thought people would grow tired of him, and he would slip into irrelevance. But every time people would get tired of Bill's story, Putin would do something so outrageous that everyone would want to hear Bill's story again! And again and again! "And that's exactly what happened here." People were tired of the Ukraine war, Putin, Russia bad blah blah blah, and "all of a sudden, Putin kills Alexiei Navalny, and everybody is paying attention now.... And a lot of things which might not have happened before will probably happen now." 

Such As: Congress will probably release the $63 billion for Ukraine, and the Western governments will confiscate the Russian money and give it to Ukraine! And he imagines Putin will do "more really, nasty things" that will keep people energized and willing to help Ukraine. Putin inspires anti-Putin people around the world. He's always doing something to make people want to contain him!

The interviewer laments so many dead friends of Putin, and asks Bill about journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza. Bill appreciates this. Kara-Murzs is another close friend of Bill's, who traveled the world with Bill to advocate for the Magnitsky Act. "The Russians hate his guts because of the Magnitsky Act." They tried to poison him in 2015 with some horrible nerve agent that left him in a coma, with organ failure, and he nearly died. (!) They tried again in 2017, and again he nearly died (!!), and he's been suffering with the after-effects ever since. And at the beginning of the war in 2022, he returned to Russia to protest the war and lead the people against Putin. But he only lasted one day! After going on CNN to call Putin a murderer and war criminal, he was arrested and sentenced to 25 years in jail (for treason, Bill forgot to mention). And he is now in solitary confinement in a Siberian prison, suffering from the after-effects of this horrible nerve agent, slowly dying. Very Slowly. And it's one of Bill's biggest priorities to free Vladimir Kara-Murza from prison (just like Serge except he didn't really do anything helpful that time). And he was just at the Munich Security Conference meeting with assorted world leaders trying to drum up a prisoners swap. Find some Russian spies in Western prisons and trade them for Kara-Murza and a few other vulnerable heroes. Because Vlad won't survive even two years in a Siberian Gulag.

In Munich, regarding Navalny, "the shock and outrage was visceral." You could just look in people's eyes and see how outraged they were." Words were not even necessary. "And this will have a very dramatic and important political consequence for Putin as everybody processes this shocking, outrageous story and tries to do something with it."


It's not so clear that Navalny would be bragging about his friendship and working relationship with Bill, but he's not here now to protest. However, some years back Navalny sued a Russian state-owned media company for linking him to Browder in a film. The Moscow court dismissed the suit.

 July 12, 2016: Moscow court dismisses Navalny's claim against Browder film

A Moscow court has rejected Russian oppositioner Alexei Navalny's lawsuit against state-owned media company VGTRK over a film linking him to British-American investor William Browder, the RBC news website reported Tuesday.

“The Browder Effect” film premiered on the Rossiya 1 television channel on April 13. It claims that Navalny and Browder were part of a joint British-American intelligence operation in Russia from 2007.

According to the film, the CIA gave Navalny the codename “freedom,” and he received money as a paid agent of Browder, the head of the Moscow-based Hermitage Capital investment advisory firm.

The film shows Browder telling Navalny via Skype to undermine Russian constitutional order, and shows what it claims to be CIA reports of their conversations. Navalny claims to never have used the Skype name shown, and implied the falsification of the CIA reports by the filmmakers.

Navalny and Browder have only ever exchanged a few emails, in which they discussed Browder's experience in court against Russian gas giant Gazprom, according to Navalny's press secretary Kira Yarmish.

The film also implicates Navalny in the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in prison and says the politician received $300,000 to support the ensuing Magnitsky list, which restricted travel of Russians involved in the case to the United States.

Well all that protesting accomplished nothing, except getting it on the record; and that is convenient for us eight years later. 

Now what's kind of funny about the Global Magnitsky Act, is that President Trump on 12/20/2017 used it in Executive Order 13818.

From the Congressional Research Service:

E.O. 13818, which the Treasury Department describes as building upon and implementing the Global Magnitsky Act, includes differences in language that expand the scope beyond that stated in the law. The E.O. broadens the standard of behavior for potentially sanctionable targets from those responsible for statutorily defined “gross violations of internationally recognized human rights” against certain individuals (as described above), to those determined “to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse.” The E.O. does not define “serious human rights abuse.” Similarly, the E.O. refers to “corruption,” rather than the law’s “acts of significant corruption.” The E.O. specifies additional categories of persons as potential sanction targets, including, for example, any person determined “to be or have been a leader or official of” an entity “that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in” serious human rights abuse or corruption. The E.O. delegates sanctions determinations to the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General. As is the case with sanctions regimes generally, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) administers the economic sanctions, while the State Department implements visa sanctions. The Global Magnitsky Act sunsets on December 23, 2022. Because the President invoked national emergency authorities to target human rights abusers, sanctions could continue beyond the expiration of the Global Magnitsky Act. The President has annually renewed the national emergency under E.O. 13818, most recently in December 2019.

As noted up top, in 2022 Biden signed into law its permanent reauthorization. This really allows the Treasury to cast a nice, wide net.

Now, if we go over to the Office of Foreign Assets Control website, and search recent actions for Magnitsky, there are 77 results which are basically lists of people and companies which are identified for economic sanctions. Long lists. Lots of people and companies -- their assets trapped under the (greatly expanded) OFAC net.

Do we know what this all means? Nope. Just pointing it out for our records here. Just making some linkages back to circa fourteen years ago. Perhaps, when Bill advocated so assiduously for the Magnitsky Act, he didn't anticipate whose ASSETS might get caught up in that wide net fourteen years later, because all his pals were still in power and presumably, they would be In Power Forever And Ever? Matrix Without End??


Kind regards, dear readers. God Bless.

The 1916 Effect - updated

Flogging Dead Horses - Tue, 10/10/2023 - 17:39

Update - there was another 2 segments from Norman Finkelstein's interview.  Ballsy statements to boot

For both of you readers out there- sorry, nothing for months and then 2

Easter 1916 in Irish history was a watershed moment in my country’s history.  Irish rebels declared the creation of an Irish Republic and occupied strategic buildings – mostly in Dublin.  A siege broke out between Irish and British forces.  Artillery and even gun boats were used indiscriminately to shell Dublin and eventually the Irish surrendered.

The defeated Irish forces were marched through the wreckage of the city and ordinary civilians spat on them.  They were hated.  The British in their arrogance decided to sentence the rebels to the usual death sentence.  Instead of lining them all up and shooting them they executed 1 per day.  The wounded James Connolly was even strapped to a chair to be shot.

I mention this as the continuous drip by drip vengeance of the Brits, day by day, turned the tide.  By the time of its conclusion the war of liberation that followed was certain.  British vengeance seized defeat from victory.  My thinking follows on from Pickler’s question (this is not a dig at Pickler) in my earlier post today.  I am seeing vengeance porn all over the Western media at the minute.

There are small exchanges currently on the borders of Lebanon and Syria.  Iraqi and Yemeni militias are making noises of moving west.  The Middle Eastern governments still have no balls but their populations are under no illusions in their support.  To set the scene check out Norman Finkelstein on the Jimmy Dore show.

Israhelli government officials talk about turning Gaza into a tent city – between 1.8 - 2.1 million people - 50% children.  That’s more that the Northern Ireland population.  The bastards bombed the border crossing to Egypt to discourage humanitarian relief.  The footage was on Telegram – screaming civvies!!

Benny Nitwit Yahoo was deeply involved in the 911 op.  He used the ‘pearl harbour’ flag in his speech just like the PNAC document that led to the war of terror and invasion of the sand box.  These fuckers are going to slaughter the occupants of the last concentration camp.

There is a term I learned from Andrei Martyanov who has educated me a lot on modern war theory called escalation dominance – who is the big daddy and who determines the next step up.

Watch the Muslim Umma (world) as Jews exterminate Muslims in industrial quantities.  Drip by drip.  It was bad enough in the times of ‘Operation Caste Lead I and II’ plus the others since.  Israhell murders the Palestinians and the world won’t address it and moves on.

The ‘Kraine has shown the US/ZOG empire is a washed out bully.  Iran didn’t back down in 2020 after General Soleimani was murdered.  America blinked as the strike was as good – if not better than what they could do with outdated cruise missiles.

This is the 1916 effect.  Benny’s government is going to exterminate a huge number of the Gazans just to bury the political opposition, corruption investigation and the land deals when they are all dead or displaced. The built-in hatred of the Arab inhabitants is just garnish on top.

This is a Category 1 warning to all folks.  If this shit does not get calmed down the US is like likely to lose 1 or 2 Carrier Groups and every airbase within 2000 miles of Iran.  After that all bets are off.

As a human I stand with the Gazans.  I’ve been on the receiving end of government shit but this is biblical level stuff.  If this doesn’t get calmed down we go will go from the Apocalypse (unveiling) to the Armageddon (battle on the plains of Megiddo)

The dog that didn’t bark

Flogging Dead Horses - Tue, 10/10/2023 - 08:13

 I was reading over at BCE’s place as usual this morning and Pickler had an interesting question “do you condone what Hamas did, and is doing to those women and children?”  A loaded but valid question.  This was my reply.

This is another false flag op to start a war with Iran and provoke Muslims worldwide to protest.  Israhell has tortured the Palestinian people for 70+ years.  People have no idea how that hatred has festered
Hamas is controlled opposition.  They were created by Mossad and imposed on the Gaza strip with the blessing of Jerusalem in 2006 in opposition to Fatah.  Soon after labelled a terrorist group and the strip sealed.  A 25 x 4 mile prison that is used as a live testing ground for new weapon systems like DIME.
The wall around their prison is electronically wired with sensors that can detect below surface digging.  A cat can’t approach that wall without an alarm being raised.  Were the IDF soldiers drugged as not one seemed to resist?
Benny Nitwit Yahoo seems beside himself with joy announcing a new ’Pearl Harbour’ event.  Sound familiar? 911 anyone?  Suddenly his corruption scandal goes away.  Never mind the poor meat sacks on both sides getting stiffed. I do not condone harming women and children.  By the same stakes I do not condone the 200+ children in Gaza murdered this year alone.  Nor the 15,000+ civilians murdered in the Donbas since 2014.  Western media is very selective in whom they want us to hate.

I understand how visceral the hate can be of the ‘other’.  How you feel when members of your community are murdered by those of the ruling community – just because they don’t ‘belong’.

I watched a lot of video on Telegram and frankly some of it was sickening. If you lock someone in a cage, torture and murder them and their kin that’s the outcome you will get.  

I’ve seen it first hand when Michael Stone was caught.  So many wanted him dead they couldn’t get the job done properly. 

Max Egan did a good video touching on the current situation in Gaza with a good recap of the last 20 years of their torment.

In a wider context we see the hegemon changing the story from their defeat in Ukraine.  They want a war with Iran so bad their balls hurt.  Similarly the Western countries have endured large invasions of Muslins.  All it needs is kindling and Europe’s cities will burn – just like France this summer.

The global mountain of debt is on its last legs and a scape goat must be found.  Russia was meant to be on its last legs by now.  The empire must smash Iran to open up Russia’s southern border and to show that ZOG can still dominate.

That boat has definitely sailed.  Iran’s pin point retaliation after the murder of General Soleimani in 2020 was a small taste of what fate the empire’s assets would receive.  Be careful what you ask for.  Empire's other predictions have worked so well lately (NOT)

I seem to recall Albert Pike’s infamous letter to Giuseppe Mazzini back in 1871

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other.

Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion... We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.

This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Colonization by SARS-CoV-2 NOT SYNONYMOUS WITH INFECTION, (different, disimilar) screening study highlights:

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 07/13/2021 - 17:26

 Here's hoping you've read?

And you have viewed?Feast your eyes on the information below: As the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pathogen continues to spread the world over, public health authorities have had to resort to containment strategies such as case detection and isolation, contact tracing and quarantine. These depend on the use of detection techniques, primarily based on finding viral antigens or genetic material in test samples. A new study released as a preprint on the medRxiv* server throws cold water on this notion, however, by demonstrating that in a set of asymptomatic cases, less than a tenth actually had evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection. This finding has serious implications for the practices mentioned above, since they may be neither justifiable nor cost-effective as means to break the chain of viral transmission.Background The gold standard for SARS-CoV-2 detection at present is the use of reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT PCR) to pick up the presence of viral ribonucleic acid (RNA). In this case, RNA is both the viral genetic material and the mediator of transcription of viral products. A positive PCR test is taken as proof of acute infection, which is by definition transmissible. Thus, the next step is to isolate the individual after a single positive test is returned. In addition, all contacts of this so-called case are identified so that they can be put into quarantine for a predefined number of days, watching for evidence of infection, either clinical signs and symptoms, or a positive PCR test.

As we know this is not proof of transmission capabilities

How was the study done? The current study reports data from a unique program implemented for the protection of top soccer players and staff following the lockdown in Germany. The aim was to enable the matches of the German Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 to proceed within a closed stadium. In order to establish this, PCR testing was performed on nasopharyngeal and/or oropharyngeal swabs twice a week. If a test came back positive, some teams voluntarily opted to retest the individual, though this practice was never promoted by the program managers.                                  
Of about 1,700 staff and players who underwent regular screening, there were 98 positive tests between September 13, 2020, and January 14, 2021. The current paper focuses on 11 positive results which came from asymptomatic cases.                      
In all 11, only one test came back positive, with a string of negative PCR tests thereafter. The positive test was associated with a low cycle threshold, the median being 36. This indicates a low viral load.

 36 is not a very low cycle number. But would, indeed, indicate a very low viral load.

What does this pattern mean? The researchers sought to understand the meaning of this pattern. One possible approach was to look for systemic signs of humoral and cellular immune responses to the virus. In order to detect this, the scientists assessed both specific antibodies and T cells (CD4+ and CD8+) elicited against SARS-CoV-2 at a median of 1.5 months (42 days) after the positive PCR test. Interestingly, only one individual had signs of systemic immune response, out of 11 They postulate that a strong local immune response may have led to viral neutralization at the mucosal surface itself, preventing its entry beyond the local level and precluding a systemic immune response. Another possibility is that contamination occurred during testing, since these patients were mostly asymptomatic, nor did they develop systemic immunity. But the quality of the testing system seems to rule out contamination on such a large scale. False-negative PCR results were also considered as a potential source of error, but the repeated negatives seem to militate against this possibility. What are the implications? In the current state of knowledge, it would seem that SARS-CoV-2 can establish its presence for a short period on some individuals, while not being able to infect the tissues or cause-specific adaptive immunity. Strangely, scientists seem to have missed this obvious pattern so far, despite its being present in over a tenth of positive cases. This is inferred from the point that retests are rarely ordered after a PCR test comes back positive.

 I’m unsure how “strange” it is that scientists missed this “obvious pattern” in more then a tenth of positive cases? In fact the question has to be asked if this was intentionally overlooked.

The scientists conclude:     Further characterization of transient colonization regarding contagiousness is warranted, as preventive measures such as isolation and contact tracing may not be justified in these cases.”

 Research by Evan Dominguez, Billy Clayton Miller 

“Propaganda is the executive arm of the invisible government,” wrote Edward Bernays, the father of modern propaganda. In part one of Episode 17, Mark Crispin Miller, professor of Media Studies at New York University, discusses the propaganda onslaught that defined the year 2020, when what was dismissed one week is confirmed the next, and why questioning official narratives "necessarily means taking ‘conspiracy theory’ seriously.”

Covid Vaccine Effectiveness 2.9% ( Negligible to non existent effectiveness)

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Mon, 07/12/2021 - 17:19

 I've been talking this TRUTH up for how long here?

The vaccine was NEVER intended to stop transmission. It was NEVER shown to be capable of stopping or even slowing transmission. NEVER. EVER. EVER.

All the jab receivers are Pawns (slang meaning: noun. a person manipulated in order to enact a plan.)  Having been snookered. (trick, entice, or trap) Duped.(deceived/tricked)


"Covid vaccines may be far less effective at preventing infection than previously thought"

Thought? As in there was no science? There was no data? It was not known? Just "thought" ?

Who thought that? Did the media encourage people to have that "thought" when there was no proof? This was not a "thought" held to be true by myself. 

Although the Delta variant is much more contagious (another "thought" you're to believe?) than previous forms of Covid, that wasn’t enough to explain the increase.

Professor Friston’s modelling is based on “real world” data and suggests that the efficacy rate against infection could be as low as 2.9 per cent.

the efficacy rate against infection could be as low as 2.9 per cent.

He says the low effective efficacy of the jabs against infection is only a hypothesis but he believes there is no other explanation for why cases are soaring.

“The only way you could explain the resurgence of new cases was to relax the assumption that people who were vaccinated couldn’t get infected. There was a missing link and when we relaxed that assumption suddenly everything started to fit,” he said, referring to the trend of Covid rates rising far faster than deaths and hospital admissions.

Prof Friston and University College London colleague Professor Anthony Costello have set out their hypothesis in a comment piece for the British Medical Journal (BMA).

I'm going to relink below a few of the many, many  times readers here were informed that this vaccine could not, would not and was never going to reduce transmission.

These vaccines have killed and maimed globally. The benefit does not outweigh the risk.  In fact the risk is still largely unknown.

Haiti and Cuba: Drug Running, Windward Passage, Panama - Location, location, location

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Mon, 07/12/2021 - 12:57

 Location. It's always an important consideration in every geo political situation.
* First the assassination of the Haitian President Moise and the weirdness that surrounds that.

 Haiti's police chief announced Sunday that officers have arrested a Haitian man (Sanon) accused of flying into the country on a private jet and working with the masterminds and alleged assassins behind the killing of President Jovenel Moïse.

Charles said Sanon was in contact with a firm that provides security for politicians and recruited the suspects, adding that the suspect flew into Haiti with them in early June. The men's initial mission was to protect Sanon, but they later received a new one: arrest the president, the chief said.

"The operation started from there," he said, noting that an additional 22 suspects joined the group and that contact was made with Haitian citizens.

Sanon has lived in Florida, in Broward County and in Hillsborough County on the Gulf Coast. Records show he has also lived in Kansas City, Missouri. He filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and identifies himself as a doctor in a video on YouTube titled "Leadership for Haiti."

* Second: News of anti government protests in Cuba. With “thousands” in attendance.
I don’t know about that? Hundreds looks more like it. 500 perhaps?


*  Thousands of Cubans marched on Havana's Malecon promenade and elsewhere on the island Sunday to protest food shortages and high prices (US Sanctions)
* Many young people took part in the afternoon protest in the capital (??)
* Cuba is going through its worst economic crisis in decades, along with a resurgence of coronavirus cases, as it suffers the consequences of U.S. sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.
* A group of government supporters also arrived in the area shouting slogans in favour of the late president Fidel Castro and the revolution. Some of them assaulted a cameraman and an AP photographer.

* Afterward, though, he accused Cuban Americans of stirring up trouble.

*"As if pandemic outbreaks had not existed all over the world, the Cuban American mafia, paying very well on social networks to influencers and YouTubers, has created a whole campaign ... and has called for demonstrations across the country," (Cuba's President)  Díaz-Canel told reporters

In ten years there is no reason to doubt the notion that the US hasmoved an ever greater quantity of satellite and internet equipment in to Cuba

 These two nations and the incidents of disruption destabilization are connected. Panama, it's Canal, Jamaica, the US base at Guantanamo are all points of interest and intersection. And so is the Windward Passage. The Windward Passage is likely the least known, everyone knowing what the Panama Canal is. So travel back 11 years to this older work:

 Washington's interest in Haiti arose chiefly because of the country's proximity to the Panama Canal and Central America. Haiti also controls the Windward Passage, a narrow body of water that could be easily closed, disrupting maritime traffic. In the nineteenth century, the United States considered establishing a naval base in Haiti ....

Image Link

The Windward Passage is the strait  that specifically lies between the easternmost region of Cuba and the northwest of Haiti. 80km wide, the Windward Passage has a threshold depth of 1,700m. It connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, and is in the direct path of shipping between the Panama Canal and the eastern seaboard of the United States.

Not a coincidence that Haiti's leader is taken out and anti government protests appear in Cuba. 

The Windward Passage figures large in drug running: 

Haiti’s nightmare: The Cocaine Coup and the C.I.A. connection (some excerpts- read at the link, please)

Going back to move ahead....

Aristide, a Roman Catholic priest who had been elected nearly three years before with 70 percent of the vote in Haiti’s first free election, was speaking to a packed session of the United Nations General Assembly.

In a dramatic move, Aristide told the diplomats that the military government of Haiti had to yield the power that was to end Haiti’s role in the drug trade, a trade financed by Colombia’s Cali cartel, that had exploded in the months following the coup.

Aristide told the U.N. that each year Haiti is the transit point for nearly 50 tons of cocaine (at that time) worth more than a billion dollars, providing Haiti’s military rulers with $200 million in profits.

Aristide’s electrifying accusations opened the floodgate of even more sinister revelations. Massachusetts Senator John Kerry heads a subcommittee concerned with international terrorism and drug trafficking that turned up collusion between the C.I.A. and drug traffickers during the late 1980s Iran Contra hearings.

Kerry had developed detailed information on drug trafficking by Haiti’s military rulers that led to the indictment in Miami in 1988, of Lt. Col. Jean Paul. The indictment was a major embarrassment to the Haitian military, especially since Paul defiantly refused to surrender to U.S. authorities. It was just a month before thousands of U.S. troops invaded Panama and arrested Manuel Noriega who, like Col. Paul, was also under indictment for drug trafficking in Florida.


On April 21, 1994, a convicted Colombian drug trafficker, Gabriel Taboada, who is in the fifth year of a 12-year sentence in a Miami federal prison, fingered Francois at a Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee hearing chaired by Senator John Kerry. Taboada testified that Lt. Col. Francois collaborated in shipping tons of cocaine to the United States during then 1980s.

Taboada said he met Francois while he was in the Medellin, Colombia, office of drug king Pablo Escobar, in 1984. During a 30-minute conversation, Taboada told Francois he was a car importer. Francois, he said, asked “why wasn’t I in the drug business since the drug business made good money.”

Speaking through an interpreter, Taboada said: “I asked him what his business was and he said that at the time he was in Medellin arranging a cocaine deal.” Taboada said he later learned that Francois was chief of police in Haiti.

Taboada told the committee that the cartel “took planes out of Colombia and landed in Haiti, protected by the Haitian military. Michel Francois protected the drugs in Haiti, and then allowed the drugs to continue to the United States.”

No reason to think the drug running has stopped. 

Cuba seems intent on reigning in the drug trafficking Drug shipment intercepted in Baracoa

A shipment of 929.32 kilograms of marijuana was intercepted by the Cuban authorities last week to the north of the province of Guantánamo, the island’s official media reported this Saturday

The note specifies that the boat with two outboard motors, with papers from one of the islands of the Bahamas, was detected on April 10 at around 6:00 p.m. by the Visual Observation Service of the Radio Technical Post of the eastern Baracoa region.

After neutralizing one of the engines, the Bahamians showed resistance, disobeyed the arrest order, began throwing the drug into the sea and to pour a fuel tank inside the vessel, in order to set fire to the boat to eliminate the evidence and jump into the sea

Is That Rush for a Third Covid Vaccine Booster Jab Necessary?

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Sat, 07/10/2021 - 16:51

Stay tuned for an upcoming video that fits this news like a hand to a glove!

 Trial Site News:

Thanks to a valued community member, TrialSite shares recent study results led by Spanish researchers. With important results published in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, TrialSite points to a growing chasm out there provoked by the mainstream media’s fear-mongering about waning immunity, risk of variants, and as TrialSite shares later today, the called-out need for booster shots. Importantly, a majority of the mainstream media-sensationalized headlines are premised on in vitro evidence regarding antibodies. This new study’s argument is intriguing. The first reports of waning immunity stem from accounts of recovered patients whose antibody titers revealed material decreases after 3 to 6 months. However, it’s well established that circulating antibodies rise rapidly soon after an acute infection, stabilize, and then start to decline. But humoral immunity persists in the form of memory B Cells that expeditiously produce massive volumes of antibodies in response to a reintroduction of the antigen. This exposure takes about 24 hours as opposed to the 8 to 12 days it takes after the first exposure.

The second time the headlines used these same scare tactics were when in vitro studies showed that antibodies had a lower neutralizing effect on variants versus the wild type. However, it’s not at all clear how much of a humoral response is required in order to repel a reinfection. The other factor is that humoral immunity (B Cells that produce antibodies) is only a portion of the adaptive immune response. The other main portion of the adaptive response is cellular immunity (Cytotoxic T cells). It’s been shown that cellular immunity is much more important for combating COVID-19 and avoiding the secondary inflammatory stage. In fact, it’s been demonstrated that an immune response dominated by TH2 (cellular) leads to poor outcomes and mortality. 

In plain language the type of response generated by the vaccine leads to poor outcomes and mortality.

Humoral immunity is easy to measure because the antibodies are circulating in the blood. However, the more important cellular immunity is much more difficult to measure. Therefore, we haven’t had clear evidence around how much T Cell immunity might be waning and if T Cells would suffer a significant reduction in recognition to the variants’ epitopes. It’s been inferred that cellular immunity is more enduring than humoral when it comes to COVID-19 based on the real-world evidence of how natural immunity and vaccine-derived immunity are holding up well to the variants. This paper provides data to back up the real-world evidence that’s being observed.

Further Monetization by Pfizer?

This real-world evidence hasn’t prevented Pfizer from trying to cash in on another 3rd booster shot. Recently, they announced that they would seek FDA approval for a third dose of their original vaccine formula.

They based their case on a report out of Israel that the Delta variant is reducing the efficacy of the Pfizer vaccine to 64%. However, this is very questionable since little details were provided with this statement and it contradicts strong evidence to the contrary. 

Recently, the UK published data that the Pfizer vaccine was still 88% effective at preventing symptomatic disease against the Delta variant. In addition, Pfizer also referenced the waning antibody titers after 6 months as justification for a 3rd shot. However, decreasing antibodies after 6 months is expected, and Pfizer fails to take into account the memory B Cells response or the T Cell response.

A Different Point of View

In this study, they combined an experimental and bioinformatics approach to address T cell reactivity to SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VoC). They directly assessed T Cell responses from individuals recovered from COVID-19 and those vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines for their capacity to recognize peptides derived from the ancestral reference sequence (wildtype) and the United Kingdom (UK) variant 501Y.V1 lineage B.1.1.7, the South Africa (SA) variant 501Y.V2 lineage B.1.351, the BR (Brazilian) variant 501Y.V3 lineage P.1, and the California (CA) variant CAL.20C lineages B.1.427–429.7.

This study was performed prior to the emergence of the Delta variant. However, being that the T Cells showed robust recognition for all prior variants, it’s highly likely that the same would be true for the Delta variant.

This study provides data to support the recent statement by the FDA and CDC to counter Pfizer’s claims and inform the public that a booster dose is not needed at this time.

For instance, T Cell Epitopes are conserved at over 90% across all variants.

T cell immunity against other beta coronaviruses has proven long-lived. This study showed T cell immunity up to 11 years for SARS.

It’s likely that memory T Cell immunity will be similarly long-lived for SARS-CoV-2.  The question has been if antigenic drift will cause the T cells to no longer recognize new variants. Thanks to this study, it’s clear that T cell immunity is continuing to recognize SARS-CoV-2 across all tested variants. Therefore, both recovered COVID-19 patients and vaccinated individuals can ignore the daily flood of sensationalized headlines for now.

Study Funding

This work was supported by grants: COVID-19 Research Call COV20/00181 and PI17-0147 from Institute of Health Carlos III from Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, co‐financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF, “A way to achieve Europe”).

Russia, Iran, Turkey reject unilateral Syria Sanctions, Oppose Oil Theft & Separatist Ambitions

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Fri, 07/09/2021 - 08:35

Please, no 'but, but, Turkey steals Syrian oil/ Erdogan's son' blah, blah, blah. Been there, debunked that. Long ago. There are more appropriate places for that type of dis/mis info. The Kurds have been the number one thieves of Syria's oil. That is the US allied PKK crew.

 A few previous reports and there are more

 And.. These are not "Syria's Kurds", either. That's perception management 101 ala rebranding


The guarantor countries of the Astana process on Syria (Russia, Iran and Turkey) reject unilateral sanctions against Syria, the three countries said in a joint statement following the 16th international meeting on Syria in the Astana format.
According to the statement, the parties "reiterated grave concern at the humanitarian situation in Syria, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which presents a profound challenge to all Syria's health system, socio-economic and humanitarian situations". They "rejected all unilateral sanctions, which are in contravention of international law, international humanitarian law and the UN Charter, particularly in the face of the pandemic".

Also, Moscow, Tehran, and Ankara oppose the seizure and illegal sale of oil that belongs to Damascus. The countries "reiterated their opposition to the illegal seizure and transfer of oil revenues that should belong to the Syrian Arab Republic".

"Reaffirmed their strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic as well as to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and highlighted that these principles should be universally respected and complied with," the statement said.

According to the statement, the parties agreed that long-term security and stability in this region can only be achieved on the basis of preservation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country. In addition, the countries "rejected all attempts to create new realities on the ground, including illegitimate self-rule initiatives under the pretext of combating terrorism.
 Reaffirmed their determination to stand against separatist agendas in the east of the Euphrates aimed at undermining the unity of Syria as well as threatening the national security of neighboring countries". Recently:

Lockdown Lovers Lack Faith In Their Vaccine Saviour? From Fear To Folly

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 07/08/2021 - 15:51


 Thought this oped presented an interesting perspective!

Let's be real: some people want to live in lockdown forever because they fear and loathe ordinary people.

At least now we know how to trigger the chattering classes. Just utter the phrase ‘personal responsibility’. Judging by yesterday’s mad, spittle-flying meltdown in response to Boris Johnson’s announcement that Covid restrictions will end on 19 July, no two words horrify the Smart Set more. ‘What do you mean trust people to decide for themselves how to negotiate risk and organise their lives?!’, they were essentially crying. It was a salutary and, let’s be frank, unwittingly hilarious reminder that the self-styled expert classes are in the grip of a fretful, fearful illiberalism that views the masses as vectors of disease rather than as sensible individuals capable of behaving rationally. We may have tamed Covid-19; the next big task is to tame, and ideally defeat, this virus of misanthropy that has been allowed to let rip for too long in the ranks of the new elites.

You could be forgiven for thinking Boris had passed a law making it mandatory for every citizen to snog someone infected with Covid. The response was that mad. Lifting restrictions while the Delta variant is spreading is not unlike doing away with ‘all traffic lights, road markings, speed limits and seat belts’, said one-time comic turned Remoaning madman David Schneider. Social media was awash with predictions of doom and death. Lockdown leftists – who used to call Boris a fascist but who now view him as some kind of daddy figure who should have the right to put us under house arrest whenever he damn well pleases – said ‘personal  aid ‘personal responsibility’ is a mad idea in a pandemic. The Guardian’s frontpage splash this morning says Boris is taking a ‘gamble’ with people’s lives. He’s making England ‘the most unrestricted society in Europe’. The horror! 

You can picture Guardian readers up and down the land: ‘Freedom? I knew we should have stayed in the EU.’ The masks discussion was the maddest of all – and the most revealing. Serious commentators fumed at Boris’s confirmation that even masks will no longer be legally mandated come 19 July. ‘Well, I’m going to continue wearing mine!’, some cried. All this ‘whimpering about liberty’ is nauseating, said a writer for the Independent – masks are a ‘small imposition’ with huge benefits, he claimed. 

We’re heading for the great mask divide, aren’t we? Masks are going to become the latest tool of moral distancing, a way for the right-thinking sections of the bourgeoisie to distinguish themselves from the coughing, snorting throng. It used to be AIDS ribbons or cancer bracelets and more recently a Pride flag dangling from your living-room window – now it’ll be a bit of cloth over your gob, material proof that, unlike Them, you care.

The mask meltdown in particular captured what is really going on here. Sections of the elite are bristling against the lifting of restrictions not because the stats suggest we are heading for another wave as deadly as the first and second – they suggest no such thing – but because they fear other people. Our faces, our breath, the noises we make. Masks will ‘provide an extra layer of defence from the person an inch from your face on the Northern line who hasn’t cleaned their teeth’, said that Indie columnist. In the future we will ‘look back in disbelief at the way we once breathed and snorted and coughed over each other, letting germs and bugs run riot’, he argued. A masked society, in which we all enjoy a modicum of protection from other people’s germ-ridden expressions, is ‘heaven’, he says. Translation: Hell is other people.

This view of the crowd as a potentially diseased menace is not limited to opinion writers. Experts proffer such antnti-social, anti-human thinking, too. Professor Susan Michie of SAGE said letting people get back to normal right now is like ‘building new “variant factories”‘. Prophet of doom Deepti Gurdasani agreed: ‘The UK is creating these factories, knowing the risks.’ It seems that to some people this is what freedom is, this is what society is – little more than cauldrons of infection, a messy, breathy, flesh-pressing means for sicknesses to mutate and get worse and worse. That experts can openly talk about freely associating individuals as ‘variant factories’ confirms the extent of their Covid obsessiveness, the fact that they now view everything – freedom, human interaction, society itself – in the narrow, technocratic terms of whether it will create more space for Covid to spread. To paraphrase Wilde, these people know the R-number of everything and the value of nothing.

Read the rest at the opening link and then share a thought or two?

Though I must  include this last bit:

This is good, no? It’s great, in fact. We have deployed our scientific knowledge and medical know-how to break the link between Covid infection and serious illness. So why the fear? The gloom? The horror at the prospect of a restoration of liberty? Because this isn’t actually about Covid. Not entirely, anyway. As spiked has argued from the very beginning of the pandemic, Covid-19 is a very serious virus that requires strong interventions from society, but the cultural rendering of Covid as a sickly apocalypse, a pox mankind brought upon himself with all his modernity and whatnot, a disease that will require the creation of a New Normal that just happens to conform to the anti-social, anti-masses outlook of the new elites – all of that was underpinned by a culture of fear that predated the emergence of Covid-19.

Fear. FEAR. An entire culture of it?! Yes, YES AND YES VERY MUCH YES. 

Fear and Folly in aid of class warfare.

It's so difficult to agree with Boris Johnson, he is detestable. But, stopped clocks right?

US Data released last week-  DEATHS @  Open VAERS

Note: This was the data that should have been released on Friday July 02/21 but was not released until July 05/21,  Always keep in mind Canada's data is lagging by three weeks- meaning it’s a month behind. It is only up to date to June 04/21 as you can see in the chart below:

According to the latest data:


    Up to and including June 25, 2021, a total of 123 deaths were reported after the administration of a vaccine.
Health Canada wants us to believe this is the grand total. I find that doubtful. Highly doubtful.
Since they are on the hook for compensation they have every incentive to keep these numbers down. I find the running total from the combined weekly report closer to credible. Particularly when looking at the US numbers☝

So the total from last week plus the total from this week: 938 from last week plus this week's number of 123 = 1061 is the running grand total- the choice is yours.

*No new safety signals have been identified in Canada

(two continue to be monitored)

* 34,674,379

Total doses administered (remember some of those are double dosed individuals- so that is not necessarily the number of individuals jabbed)


Total adverse event following immunization reports

(0.025% of all doses administered)


Total adverse event following immunization reports that were non-serious

(0.019% of all doses administered)


Total adverse event following immunization reports that were serious

(0.005% of all doses administered)


New adverse event following immunization reports since last update

(123 new non-serious and 149 new serious)

4 Safety Signals are being monitored- that’s two more then the two claimed in the “need to know” chart

1-Cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome following vaccination with AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 vaccine continue to be monitored. Health Canada has updated the product monograph to include information about these very rare events of blood clots associated with low levels of platelets following immunization.

Up to and including June 25, 2021, there were 59 cases of TTS in Canada with reports submitted to PHAC or to Health Canada. Of the TTS cases:

    55 cases received COVISHIELD/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines, three received a Pfizer vaccine, and one received a Moderna vaccine.

2-The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and Health Canada are also monitoring Canadian and international reports (World Health Organization, United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, European Medicines Agency, Israel) of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining around the heart) following vaccination with COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Health Canada recently updated the product monographs for both Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to include information around these risks. Health Canada and PHAC continue to monitor the evolving information regarding the association between myocarditis/pericarditis and mRNA vaccines.

3-PHAC and Health Canada are aware of international reports and regulatory actions related to capillary leak syndrome and the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Health Canada has updated the product monograph to include information on capillary leak syndrome, including a contraindication for patients who have previously experienced this syndrome.

4-PHAC and Health Canada have been actively monitoring reports of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) in Canada following AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination and are now seeing a higher number of cases than would normally be expected in the general population. Health Canada is continuing its review and is working closely with the manufacturers and international regulators to review information as it becomes available and will take appropriate action
That makes 4 problems being monitored. Not two

Adverse Events Chart Below

Notice the, undoubtedly undercounted/under documented Covid breakthrough cases keep occurring? The vaccine was never, ever, going to reduce transmissibility. And claims of it reducing sickness and hospitalization are entirely subjective.

Particularly when one considers..

Trudeau's Election Ploy- Identity Politics/Native Issues and Prepping the Arctic for Encircling Russia

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Wed, 07/07/2021 - 18:46

Understanding  people will be miffed about my stance on this subject, however, what should anger people is the exploitation by the political class of this history for their political gain. And it is exploitation. And it is for political gain. Sadly, some exploitation is okay for some people. As long as it makes them 'feel good' about themselves. Yah, I'm talking about the social justice warrior/virtue signaling types. Burning down churches. Despite the native population speaking out against this! Despite the fact that many natives are practicing Catholics.

Not in Solidarity with Us

Allan-Riley, who is a ‘60s Scoop survivor and the daughter of a residential school survivor, said the church arsons were fuelling further division between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people, and that burning the churches “is not our native way.”

Some of the buildings that have been decimated by fires include a century-old Catholic church just outside of Edmonton. One of the most recent attacks was at the Vietnamese Alliance Church in Calgary on Sunday, which hours earlier held its first full service in over a year. Days before, at least 10 churches were damaged across the city in a single night.

Thankfully some natives are speaking out against these antagonizing forces. - not in solidarity with us.

Around the corner from my home is a beautiful old Catholic church. Most if it's attendees are Italian immigrants, including my father, who came after WW2. They've nothing to do with any of this. And yet... little shoes are everywhere. You can say the church is being protested?  Sure. But the church is a building  used by the attendees. Ordinary people who are practicing their faith. Those people are the ones being targeted by do gooders who can't see the error of their ways.   

   Furthermore this type of activity will do nothing but sow division and resentment. Do the SJW's who placed those shoes there know anything about how tough life was for these persons upon arrival in Canada? And what these people suffered as they left their extended families and a nation destroyed by a devastating war /occupation? Or how hard they worked to build new lives when their own were shattered. Entire villages decimated. Family members killed. Murdered. Raped. You see I know a bit about this history. And those do gooders are do badders! I won't even get into the discrimination that was experienced by these people.  (Including the rounding up of Italians in Canada-  another apology, more electioneering in my opinion.) Justin Trudeau’s apology to Italians may look like pre-election posturing- Here’s the real story

Yes, there is harmful history. But Trudeau's sudden penance is manipulative, carefully crafted PR.

Trudeau wants an election. 

You’d have to blind to not see this is the case.  Trudeau has always been a virtue signaling/identity politics player sowing the seeds of division in Canada.  And he’s playing Canadians in a masterful fashion. As he has done previously. Flashback: 2015- Canada Saw Red

Getting my crystal ball out...

Trudeau will divide this country, same as Harper did, just in a different manner.

We will suffocate under political correctness. We already did under Harper, but, it will get so much worse under Trudeau. Free speech will be further restricted
About the native woman appointed as governor general? That’s awesome, right?
Do you all realize this woman is the Queen’s representative here in Canada.

She is appointed by the Queen

Ms. Mary Simon- Queen's Rep in Canada

The Royal Announcement:

The Queen, on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of Canada, has been pleased to approve the appointment of Ms. Mary Simon as the next Governor General of Canada.    Does anyone see the irony in that, all things considered? Think about it?

The appointment of this woman is highly suggestive that the far North will be militarized,  greater then it already is. In order to assist the US in encircling Russia Think not? Think again.

Quoting from her bio:

She later joined the Executive Council of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference (now the Inuit Circumpolar Council), for which she served two terms as President. She was Commissioner of the Nunavut Implementation Commission and Policy Co-Director of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.

From 1994 to 2003, Ms. Simon served as Ambassador for Circumpolar Affairs, becoming the first Inuk to hold an ambassadorial position. During this time, she negotiated the creation of the Arctic Council. Concurrently, she served as Ambassador of Canada to Denmark from 1999 to 2001.

Beginning in 2006, Ms. Simon served two terms as the President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami. In 2008, in the House of Commons, she delivered a response on behalf of Inuit to the formal apology on residential schools. She is the founder of the Arctic Children and Youth Foundation and, until 2014, she was the Chairperson of the National Committee on Inuit Education.

In 2017, as the Minister’s Special Representative, Ms. Simon delivered a report to the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, A new Shared Arctic Leadership Model, setting the stage for important policy and program development in support of the Arctic and its residents.
Policy and program development in support of the Arctic and it's residents-

This is cover for militarization and resource exploitation- Dressed up in fancy misleading language..

Getting to the news concerning residential schools:

If you read the royal announcement- then you're aware that Ms. Mary Simon- " delivered a response on behalf of Inuit to the formal apology on residential schools" in 2008.

 We’ve talked about the situations in the Residential Schools for nearly two decades here in Canada. Settlements have been paid. Seriously. The “Truth and Reconcilliation” Commission started in 2007

The Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the largest class-action settlement in Canadian history, began to be implemented in 2007. One of the elements of the agreement was the establishment of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to facilitate reconciliation among former students, their families, their communities and all Canadians.Trudeau want's an election. He wants to win the election. And he will play identity politics to the nth degree if that's what it takes! Be aware of this reality. All of these realities. Don't fall for these political machinations.

Flashback 2016: In honour of Trudeau's multiple deceptions

A quick look on youtube will show the many tearful shows Trudeau has put on. So,it's show time! Or for Trudeau is crying time? Either way? The guy is insincere, that's my take.  Except about winning the election. In that regard he is sincere. What ever it takes.

Part 2- Covid and Climate: Tales of Two Hysterias

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 07/06/2021 - 15:01

 Renamed contrarians critique........ my preference is for the original headline- you can see it in the url below: Link I’m using the original! I’ve omitted some of the oped to keep it as short as possible. You are, of course, free to read at the link provided.

Authored by Tilak Doshi

"Just over a year ago, I wrote in these pages an article noting the remarkable similarities in government policy responses to the impacts of the global Covid-19 pandemic and to those of climate change. Developments over the past year have only served to emphasize the resilient nature of these similarities. The striking parallels in government policy to mitigate perceived “existential threats” to humanity have become even more notable. They betray a range of critical defects in policy making, from an inordinate dependence on speculative models to the lack of transparency and the ideological corruption of science, selective reporting and group think, and the suppression of sceptics. Let’s revisit some of these parallels in government policy towards the Covid pandemic and climate change.Two Recent Events


On the Covid-19 front, the most explosive development relates to the increasing plausibility of the view that the Sars-Cov-2 virus leaked(from a lab) from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This occurred after over a year of outright denials by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the chief medical advisor to the president. This was accompanied by an onslaught of supportive articles by the mainstream media and the demonization of Senator Tom Cotton as a ‘conspiracy theorist’. He was among the first to raise the likelihood about the lab-release of the corona virus from the Wuhan institute. Newly released emails from Dr. Fauci now suggest that that he may have known that the Chinese research institute was carrying out dangerous gain-of-function research.

I'm not convinced this was leaked from Wuhan. However, I've entertained the possibility of this being created through gain of function research. In my very well received report

“Climate Change”

In the climate change wars, perhaps an equally important development is associated with the publication of Steve Koonin’s book “Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn't, and Why It Matters”. Professor Koonin is a leading climate scientist with degrees from Caltech and MIT with over 200 academic papers. He was previously provost at Caltech and chief scientist for BP. Most importantly, he was former President Obama’s science advisor who “takes an axe” to the “climate emergency” narrative after leaving his government job and re-joining academia. Despite his unimpeachable scientific credentials and his previous position with a Democrat administration, there have been no lack of attempts to ‘cancel’ Koonin and hatchet jobs on his book are
rife (here, here and here).          The Use and Abuse of Models (garbage in/garbage out)

The use of predictive models, often with highly disputed assumptions, has played an out-sized role in guiding government responses. In my previous article, I already pointed out how the not-fit-for-purpose model of Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College, London panicked governments in the UK and the US into severe economic and social lockdowns with incalculable collateral damage on the lives and livelihoods of entire populations in many countries. This could be compared, as I previously pointed out, to the alarmist “hockey stick” global warming chart adopted by climate activists, mass media and politicians since its publication in 1999. This led to vast public resources being spent on subsidies and mandates over the past two decades in the US and Western Europe to push expensive and unreliable “renewable energy” technologies, ultimately  with little impact on global dependence on fossil fuels.
My previous article suggested that lockdown policies are to the pandemic what decarbonization (“net zero by 2050”) is to climate change. There has been an increasing body of research that lockdowns – people forced to stay at home, small and medium-sized businesses forced to shut down – don’t work. There is no correlation between the severity of lockdowns and Covid mortality.
A paper published last month by the NBER found no beneficial effect of “shelter in place” or lockdown policies on excess mortality. The effect of lockdown orders was assessed in 43 countries and all 50 US states. The key finding was that shelter-in-place orders not only did not reduce excess deaths but in fact led to excess deaths from all causes. Well documented  collateral damage of lockdowns include widespread poverty, depression, bankruptcy, and unemployment (here, here and here). It has become increasingly apparent that the lockdowns had little basis in scientific research, and hysteria and groupthink were largely responsible for their adoption. The folly and hubris of central planners and favoured technocrats were on full display. The inordinate costs of “decarbonization” policies pursued in many countries have also been well documented. The German Federal Audit Office warned in a recent report that the drive to “net zero” has turned into an existential threat to the economy. The government auditor sees “sees the danger that the energy transition in this form will endanger Germany as a business location and overwhelm the financial strength of electricity-consuming companies and private households”. The report finds that decarbonization with escalating energy costs not only threatens the country with de-industrialization but it also sees an alarming threat to the country’s security of energy supply. California, with aggressive decarbonization policies akin to Germany’s, now face looming blackouts as electricity costs “explode”. “Following the Science”That’s a tiresome meme (mind virus) of no real merit

The “following the science” mantra endlessly cited by politicians to justify draconian lockdown and decarbonization policies has been used to exempt themselves from democratic constraints and the duty to exercise judgement. Relying on “The Science” is both foolish and dangerous, for science is neither consensual nor the “final answer” to any policy debate. Which scientists do you listen to? Science is a methodology constantly striving at plausible answers consistent with empirically-validated models, not some abstract end-state to ‘known knowns’. Epidemiological and climate models employed to predict outcomes of highly uncertain and only partially understood processes often yields results which are “sociological”, tuned to getting politically correct answers. These abstract predictive models, untethered to empirical validation, may well be “worse than nothing”. Appeals to science and predictive models have dominated the advocacy of policies by the power triumvirate – lawmakers, bureaucrats and the mainstream media — to mitigate perceived threats to human welfare, be it the Covid pandemic or climate change. Yet such appeals are ultimately political.  Perhaps the last word lies best with the towering American essayist H. L. Mencken, who wrote that “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary”.

Practical politics. Keeping the populace alarmed and clamouring for the illusion of safety and security. Delivered to them by their jailers. Their prison guards.

Turkey and US Negotiations Continue for Kabul (Hamid Karzai) Airport- Still No Final Agreement

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 07/06/2021 - 12:52

 Contrary to claims made. Negotiations continue.

Future of security arrangements for Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai International Airport likely to be top agenda

Amid ongoing talks on ensuring the security of the airport in Afghanistan’s capital after this summer’s NATO pullout, the Turkish and US defense chiefs are due to speak on the phone on Wednesday, said Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar.

Stressing that the operation and security of Hamid Karzai International Airport in the capital Kabul carries critical significance for Afghans' future, Akar told reporters that talks with the US on this are ongoing – including his call with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin this Wednesday – along with looking at what other countries could do in this regard.

"As Mr. President [Recep Tayyip Erdogan] stated at the (last month’s) NATO summit, there are some conditions and issues” on providing airport security, said Akar.

“We have expressed an intention on this matter. We have stated that we could stay if these conditions were met."

Turkey has previously said the financial cost of providing security should be shouldered by a number of countries, not just Turkey.

Turkey is in contact with some countries on issues such as taking political decisions at the UN and NATO, coming to an agreement with the Afghan government, and support on the political, fiscal, and logistical fronts, said Akar.

"Meanwhile, our contact with the Americans goes on. No definitive decision has so far been made... Afghanistan is a brotherly [country] for us," he said, adding that Turkey will continue to do all it can to ensure Afghans' peace, stability, and security.

"Why most people who now die with Covid in England have had a vaccination" The Guardian

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 07/06/2021 - 07:53

Why most people who now die with Covid in England have had a vaccination

Don’t think of this as a bad sign, it’s exactly what’s expected from an effective but imperfect jab
Don’t think of this as a bad sign? Seriously? 

It's what's expected from an effective but imperfect jab?

It was expected that most vaccine recipients would die from Covid because it's an imperfect jab? 

Cognitive Dissonance: Cognitive dissonance describes the discomfort experienced when two cognitions are incompatible with each other.

So, how many are having cognitive dissonance after reading most people who now die with Covid in England have had the vaccination, but, don’t read this as a bad sign?

“ most people who now die with Covid in England have had the vaccination”Should you think of that as a good sign? According to the Guardian, yes, you should!   

What you should take away from this bit of real world information is the realization that the so  called vaccination doesn’t prevent Covid from spreading or from killing it’s recipients. Since that is the fact of the matter.
  And always has been, no matter the variant.
A MailOnline headline on 13 June read: “Study shows 29% of the 42 people who have died after catching the new strain had BOTH vaccinations.” In Public Health England’s technical briefing on 25 June, that figure had risen to 43% (50 of 117), with the majority (60%) having received at least one dose.

It could sound worrying that the majority of people dying in England with the now-dominant Delta (B.1.617.2) variant have been vaccinated. Does this mean the vaccines are ineffective? Far from it, it’s what we would expect from an effective but imperfect vaccine, a risk profile that varies hugely by age and the way the vaccines have been rolled out.
Something else that should concern you? If you were a of sound mind?
You should be concerned with the fact that the media is TELLING YOU HOW TO THINK ABOUT THIS SITUATION. In a way that doesn’t align with anything resembling REAL LIFE.

In real life most people who die with Covid are vaccinated against it.

Where’s the Anti Empire Media? US Still Plundering Syria w Their Kurdish Ally/Proxy Forces

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Sun, 07/04/2021 - 09:58


  It’s interesting to observe the so called alt media and their silence as the US continues it's years long theft of Syrian resources with their PKK pals.  

Why so quiet anti empire media?  Has anyone noticed any continuing coverage of the US plunder/occupation/annexation of Syria? Anyone? Anywhere?  If you have direct me towards it, please? 

The so called alt media is continuing on with their dis/misinfo on Turkey. Which serves the remake the region agenda really well. As does keeping quiet on what's really continuing in Syria.

"Oddly enough the focus continues to be on Turkey's alleged control of Syria's oil fields.  While America's very major role flies under the radar. Such an Israeli/Empire friendly point of view."

The trend holds.

US Military Moves Dozens More Wheat- and Oil-Laden Trucks Out of Energy-Starved Syria
 The theft of these resources has forced Syria’s Russian and Iranian allies to provide the country with emergency fuel and food aid.
The US’s pillaging of eastern Syria appears to be continuing unabated, with the Syrian Arab News Agency reporting Sunday that over 45 vehicles loaded with wheat and oil have left the Rmelan area in northeastern Hasakah province heading for the unofficial al-Waleed border crossing with Iraq.

Heading right to the PKK in Northern Iraq.

    SANA says local sources from al-Swaidiyeh village told the news agency that the convoy of vehicles included 45 truck and tanker vehicles. At the same time, the sources said, a separate convoy of 27 vehicles loaded up with supplies and equipment came through the same crossing and made their way to Rmelan to support the US forces stationed there.The news comes less than 24 hours after a separate incident, during which 37 tankers carrying oil illegally pumped from the Syrian region of Jazira and several trucks and refrigerators carrying unknown cargoes made their way for the al-Waleed crossing. In that instance, SANA’s sources said multiple tankers were fitted with large covered boxes, and that the convoy was accompanied by machinegun-armed support vehicles said to belong to the Syrian Democratic Forces – the US-allied, predominantly Kurdish militia which enjoys de facto control over much of eastern Syria.

Washington has used its control of these areas in combination with crushing sanctions to keep Damascus crippled and to prevent the war-torn from rebuilding, and Syrian media report on a weekly and sometimes daily basis on the smuggling of dozens of trucks filled with oil and grains out of the country, as military equipment and supplies are brought back in. In March, Syrian oil minister Bassam Touma estimated that as much as 90 percent of Syria’s oil resources are under the control of the US and its allies
Before the Syrian conflict began in 2011, the Middle Eastern nation enjoyed both food and energy self-sufficiency. Today, amid the US pressure, Syria is forced to depend on emergency food and oil aid from its Russian and Iranian partners. On top of that, Iranian oil deliveries reportedly carry the extra burden of being constantly harried by Israeli sabotage attacks at sea.This has been a continually covered topic here. I'm at a loss to explain the silence elsewhere?

A smattering for a few reports:

Regional remake. Creating a weaponized refugee outflow. Creating an Israel 2.0 for the benefit of Israel 1.0. Accessing water and energy resources for purposes of  total control. And profit. All in plain site.
