The Battle for the World

Tribunals; One-Time Use, Not for Profit, for Commentary

I started to write this as a response to Misha, but it’s something I’ve been wanting to share with the rest of you, as well. 

The conversation with Misha started off about the energy crisis and the degree to which it is driving current events. 

In the United States, there is no energy crisis.  We have enough natural gas today to last 90+ years.  The shortages are self-imposed.  At any point we can start harnessing them again and rebuild the reserves Biden gave away.

Europe, unfortunately, didn’t put a priority on addressing their energy needs.  The Markell(s) and the Macron(s) of the world both assumed they had it covered.  They were fully on board with the culling of the planet and neutralizing Russia via Ukraine.  They probably thought they’d have all the energy they’d needed when they split Russia into 5 pieces which, obviously, did not happen.

I’m sure there is a way out of this for them, but they’re going to drag their feet because at the end of the day,  they don’t care about their people; they care about themselves. That’s why their people are in the streets making noise about having to chop wood for the winter and why they can’t leave their homes without being accosted.  – (Let’s throw Trudeau in with the mix.  His people hate him, too.)

With regard to Putin, he, like our military, is part of the Alliance as I mentioned several months ago.   The Alliance is now comprised of 123 countries but I could be off on the specific number.   This Alliance is redefining how things are going to be from this point forward.

Putin’s role started with defeating the Khazarian Mafia’s “color revolution” in Kazakstan. The KM is an organized crime syndicate that has deeply infiltrated and hijacked the political institutions of the United States.

Next, Putin took out the Khazarian Mafia and Oligarchy in Ukraine, which is why Biden, et. al got so invested in this war, which also benefits the United States.

Then he forced countries to start paying for gas in gold backed rubles to undermine the ability of other countries using the “funny money” Biden throws around.

He is moving the separatists under his protection, as Ukraine was torturing them in flagrant violation of the Minsk agreement.  

Finally, he will relegate what’s left of Ukraine to a safe, isolated spot where the U.S., NATO and the EU can’t leverage them to threaten Russia’s borders.

Everyone keeps saying Putin wants a nuclear war, yet he took these steps, so there wouldn’t be a biological or nuclear war. So far, no one has stopped him and the West is running out of ideas.  Of course, he is amassing troops and using strong language!  If he allows himself to appear weak, the West might be emboldened to take things further than they already have.

Again, he is trying to avert a nuclear war, not cause one.

Don’t be surprised if the media tells you that nuclear bombs are going off in major cities within the next few weeks.  The West is desperate to make Russia look like an aggressor; not just in Ukraine but around the world.  Bombs were placed in major cities.  They were swapped out with firecrackers.  They’ll make the sky red but that doesn’t mean Putin has launched a nuclear attack.  Nothing reported by the MSM should be believed at this point. 

Because The Alliance is coordinating their efforts, there are a LOT of moving parts, not the least of which involves setting up a world bank for when the central banks close, which is purportedly going to happen very soon.  The war with Ukraine has served as a necessary distraction while all this was being set up.  If it were a matter of leveling Ukraine, that could have been done very quickly.

Let’s say the military was provided credible evidence of election fraud which is a serious affront to our Constitution.  Public servants take an an oath to defend the Constitution:

“I [officer’s name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God!”

The military has to protect the Constitution which is under attack if there is voter fraud.  In this case, however, it’s not just about the election.  There are people who are deliberately undermining American interests (killing us even) in an attempt to take all our freedoms away.  Agenda 21, which is now Agenda 30, is proof of that, as is the WHO Czar in charge of public health, who can decide how each country is to deal with a real (or imagined) public health emergency like COVID, for example, that is 99.97% survivable and for which they are requiring deadly vaccines in lieu of early treatment with hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin.   

We are in a world war with globalists and their agendas.

It’s not a boots on the ground war (yet; or that I know of) and it’s not specific to a country; it’s specific to the leaders of the UN, the WHO, the World Economic Forum (Davos) and other agencies who are: (1) implementing crimes against humanity by blurring the lines between humans and machines and (2) threatening our food supply through the manipulation of our weather, blowing up food distributions centers, withholding fertilizers, and buying up farm land, etc.

Not to mention culling the population through the distribution of deadly vaccines.

And then there is trafficking; specifically child trafficking, which is rampant.

Again, the military has been called in to fight this war.  No wonder Trump called himself a “war-time president.”  At the time, I had no idea what he was talking about.

The Alliance was created to address these concerns.  The military and Trump, together, are united with these countries in addressing the issues within their respective borders and they have a plan.

– They are taking down the central banking system which is like the “food supply chain” of the bad guys.
– They are converting to gold backed currency.
– They’re orchestrating a system of coordinated measures for apprehending criminals, starting in the 4 corners of the world, working their way inward toward the center, which is Washington DC.

Gone will be the core of corruption: the Vatican, the City of London and Washington D.C., the home of “ THE UNITED STATES”, which is not fully understood by most people.

Biden, obviously, is not part of The Alliance, nor is he in charge of the military. He is the president of THE UNITED STATES corporation which has run out of money.  The corporation is soon to be no more because it can’t pay it’s debts with “funny money” anymore, which is all that’s left.  This is why Biden is running all over the world looking for hand outs to pay off the debt which is due by the end of the month.  The collapse of the corporation is eminent; however, rest assured this collapse will not collapse the republic.

It’s worth noting the Vatican, the City of London and Washington D.C. are all associated with elite pedophilia networks for global human trafficking and child sacrifice.


People are going to be shocked when they learn the truth about why there’s nobody left in Washington DC and what had to be done to protect the Constitution.

Ask yourself this, under what circumstances can the National Guard be called into federal service and who told them to surround Washington DC before and after Biden was inaugurated?

10 U.S. Code § 12406 – National Guard in Federal service: call
(1)the United States, or any of the Commonwealths or possessions, is invaded or is in danger of invasion by a foreign nation;
(2)there is a rebellion or danger of a rebellion against the authority of the Government of the United States; or
(3)the President is unable with the regular forces to execute the laws of the United States;
the President may call into Federal service members and units of the National Guard of any State in such numbers as he considers necessary to repel the invasion, suppress the rebellion, or execute those laws. Orders for these purposes shall be issued through the governors of the States or, in the case of the District of Columbia, through the commanding general of the National Guard of the District of Columbia.
(Added Pub. L. 103–337, div. A, title XVI, § 1662(f)(1), Oct. 5, 1994, 108 Stat. 2994; amended Pub. L. 109–163, div. A, title X, § 1057(a)(5), Jan. 6, 2006, 119 Stat. 3440.)

So what else can the president do in such a situation?

Based on H.R. 5122, which became Public Law 109-364, in addition to allocating funding for the armed forces, the president has the power to declare martial law and to take command of the National Guard units of each state without the consent of state governors. .

Did Trump declare martial law?  Sure looks like it.  If so, why?  

Was it because Trump believed the January 6th fiasco was a true danger to the country?  No.

Did he believe our election process, at the very heart of our Constitution, was compromised?  Yes.

The DOD wasn’t interested in looking at the evidence, but maybe the military, whose job it is to defend the Constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies, did, and because there was enough evidence to conclude that there had been outside interference, they got involved.

And maybe from that point forward, they have been doing things the “military” way; trying people in tribunals, quickly coming to a decision, and dispensing the consequences.

Some amazing pictures:

This could explain what we’re seeing (and not seeing) in D.C.:  The National Guard, unscalable fences,  and no SWAT teams on the White House roof, are but a few.  Marines who aren’t dressed appropriately, don’t stand appropriately, or salute appropriately are also signs something is amiss.

Can a president can stay in office during martial law?  Yes, because the Constitution allows for a president to assume power in times of emergency. Martial law is actually a state of heightened readiness to respond to an emergency. During this time, the president has the authority to assume power and control all government functions. The military may be called upon to enforce martial law, but the president remains in office from that point on until Congress terminates his or her term.

Does this mean Trump is still our president?  It could, because the president is given emergency powers under martial law.  However, Trump would not want to flaunt it for two reasons: (1)  He would not want what’s going on to be misinterpreted as a coup and (2) he might have been concerned how the country would react to finding out what’s really going on and why.  He has to give the country time to catch up and see what’s going on.  It’s a LOT.   We’ve been betrayed at every level. 

Could Trump still being president be the reason why Congress keeps trying to impeach him?   Yes, because a president cannot stay in office if he or she violates the Constitution during martial law.

If Trump brought in the military, are they going to be around for the mid-terms?  If so, it might be a very different experience than the last time people came to the polls.

This military plan was purportedly “war gamed” out in a military theater years ago where every eventuality was planned.  They’ve accounted for everything because this battle is for the world.   We’re closer to the end of their operation which started in 2016 with the election of Trump. 

A lot of things have been turned around.  The culprits are soon to be gone.  Frankly, it’s a ray of hope.  Had the world continued on it’s previous trajectory, 90% of us would be gone or enslaved in those lovely FEMA Camps under Walmart.   


  1. What you wrote is a profound summary of what is taking place. I spend day and night researching various blogs written by very wise people with various perspectives as to what is occurring. I have been studying day and night non stop. I am quite disheartened that my friends and family are not very interested as to how their life is going to change as this world crisis deepens. Who knows how long it will last? Who knows the amount of suffering that is yet to come?

    It seems to me that most people are walking around completely oblivious. My heart is broken from what I learned, and witnessed these last few years. My God, help me wake people up!! I find many people cannot stand to read anymore! They cannot focus if you try and converse about the facts. What will it take? A hell realm is approaching fast.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      As you just stated, it takes a lot of research to ferret out the truth and people just don’t have the time or the desire to do it. The best we can do is to maintain our integrity in the hope that people will read what we write and say, “I don’t know if that’s true, but I believe her.”

  2. That’s difficult to believe, Galinushka. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that, more or less under the radar, Trump declared martial law before the end of his term, thus prolonging it in spite of the fact that a justice of the Supreme Court swore in Biden in front of God and everybody. Furthermore, you are saying that the military is with Trump and is holding tribunals to purge the usurpers, but out of the spotlight.

    Miley and Austin do not seem to be on Trump’s side. I could believe that military intelligence was capable of such a thing, but they are subject to the chain of command. I see it as highly unlikely that such a kabuki show could be pulled off. Plus, who have the tribunals prosecuted? Certainly not the DNC or Biden.

    Now, there is an Alliance. One might call them “the Rest”, as opposed to the West. Putin is leading that to establish a new multipolar world order. No doubt about that.

    Trump is well connected and has many friends in high places, as well as enemies. The CIA, the FBI, the State Department and DOJ, all are as corrupt as it gets. I don’t think the military, at the highest levels, is any exception. That is the purpose of the “Schedule F” strategy, to fire everybody.

    But we shall have to wait and see. Who really knows? It’s enough to give one vertigo.

        I have several FB friends who have insisted from the gitgo that this scenario is what was happening.

      When the money stops, everyone goes home. Game over.
      Who is going to stay on the job when they’re not paid ?
      Those people who know how to survive and thrive without money will continue to do so.
      As far as anyone else without the proper knowledge and skills……well, it sucks to be them and they will get exactly the same as they dished out, or better.
      This will be the actual “Great Reset”

      • George Michalopulos says

        ML, that’s one reason why I don’t think a universal basic income (UBI) can work.

        First, the money has to come from somewhere. If everybody is unemployed, who will pay into the kitty?

        Second, say your rent is $1,000/month and the govt gives you $$2,000/mo for your UBI, what do you think your rent will be the next month? I’d say at least $1,500/month.

        Now the proglib will say that at that point: the govt will come in and freeze all rents so that landlords can’t take advantage of the UBI. OK, but that will dry up the housing stock. At the very least, landlords will not do the repairs for the necessary upkeep of real property.

        Wage and price controls have never worked in the two times in which they were enacted: first under the Emperor Diocletian (AD 300) and then under President Nixon in the 1970s.

        Anyway, sorry for going off-tangent. It’s something that’s been on my mind for quite awhile.

        • The idea of ‘Social Credit,’ pioneered by British engineer C.H. Douglas seems like a far more effective system than UBI. Generally speaking, it dealt with alleviating poverty, while still necessitating employment and increasing the purchasing power of the people, which contributed to economic development.

        • “Wage and price controls have never worked
          in the two times in which they were enacted:
          first under the Emperor Diocletian (AD 300)
          and then under President Nixon in the 1970s.”

          1972: Pay and price freeze aims to curb inflation

          ‘ The Conservative Government has frozen pay and prices in an attempt to halt spiralling inflation.

          The controls on income and expenditure have been introduced after talks between the government, the Trades Unions Council and the Confederation of British Industry failed to produce an anti-inflationary deal.

          In a statement to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Edward Heath told MPs the government had decided to bring in laws enforcing price and pay controls.

          In the period before legislation was passed there would be a freeze, effective immediately, on prices, wages, dividends and rents, Mr Heath said.

          The freeze applies to prices and charges for goods and services provided by both the private and public sector. …

          After his statement Mr Heath was asked by one of his own MPs,
          Enoch Powell, whether he had taken leave of his senses. … ”

          Ahh… Old Enoch! If he had succeeded Douglas-Home,
          instead of Heath, things would have been different.
          For one thing we would have never joined the EEC,
          far less the European Union that it inevitably became.
          And mass immigration would never have got started.

          Of course, Heath’s wage and price controls failed,
          just like everything else he did – except for the lies
          he told to deceive us into voting to join the EEC/EU.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Misha, as Gail said, there is no “energy crisis” in the global sense of the word. There is an energy crisis in Europe but only because they don’t have anywhere near the resources or commodities (i.e. oil, gas, coal) that the U S and Russia do. Hence, they’ll freeze to death this winter unless they change their minds.

      I say this (there is no energy crisis) because being from the Oil Patch (i.e. TX, OK, LA) and being acquainted with people working in the oil industry, we were told even back in the 70s that there was no shortage of oil in the world, just misallocations (due to a variety of reasons which I won’t go into here).

      True, many of these people believed in the concept of “peak oil” but they couldn’t agree on whether he hit that date (in 1936) or whether it was still in the future. Since then, more and more people in the industry are quietly shelving the whole concept of peak oil and some heretics are saying that the supply of oil is almost infinite (or at least until the earth lasts).

      As for the military, I agree that the upper reaches of the Pentagon (rank of major/lt commander) are mostly compromised vis a vis their obeisance to cultural Marxism. As for the flag rank (gen/adm) they’re completely out of touch with reality –that’s what 8 years of Obama did. Having said that, I do believe that there are sections within the armed services which are unaffected.

      I thus have reason to believe that this is where the future hope for our country lies, not because I’m an optimist (I’m not) but because the entire Deep State and all its apparati are going hog-wild in their stupidity. Trump continues to scramble their brains and thus they make one mistake after another. And with MAGA Republicans waiting in the wings (like DeSantis), they’re going even crazier.

      As for the cooler heads at the Pentagon, Putin is completely discombobulating them. They know that the US simply doesn’t have the wherewithal to go toe-to-toe with Russia. (I’m not sure that we can do the same with China for that matter.) Even a defeat-by-proxy in the Ukraine for the US/NATO could bring about the systemic change that is necessary to reform our military from the top-down.

      As for the coming economic collapse, it will restore normalcy in the civilian sphere as well. (No more tranny teachers, Satanists reading books to children, grooming of children, gay pride parades, feminazism, etc.)

      • George,

        Yes, totally agreed. I call it an “energy crisis” sometimes with reference to Europe but what I am talking about is totally self-inflicted. One can inflict a crisis on one’s people, ask Stalin. But you all are right that there are no legitimate shortages anywhere.

        As to Galinushka’s sentiments regarding the military: I am not discounting the possiblity. Early after the Steal, there were people who seemed to be privy to the mindset of military intelligence that they were aware of the coup and opposed to the same. I am not banking on it and generally do not discuss it in that detail, but it is quite possible and Galina may be entirely correct.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Everyone (including me) should take note of how Misha approaches things he’s not sure he agrees with.

      He is not confrontational. He is respectful. Sweet even. I like when he calls me Galinushka because it’s a term of endearment, and an indicator that he’s not going to jump down my throat about something he doesn’t like.

      He gives people the benefit of the doubt. He doesn’t dismiss anyone. He listens (reads) carefully to what you are saying and generally finds something he can agree with, if not everything.

      This is the way to maintain good relationships on the blog. If we can’t approach each other with that kind of good will, it’s just isn’t worth it.

      • Good point Gail.
        I too am highly skeptical of what you’re saying, and I write that as one who is laughed at by all of my friends and called a conspiracy theorist.
        I judge what I hear, by what I see with my own eyes. The two have to line up. I don’t just believe things bc someone on the web wrote it.
        The most believable scenario to me is that Trump is, always has been, and always will be a part of the elites who rule us and hate us all. I mean, for most of his life, he was known as a liberal playboy. That photo of him with Bill Clinton, Melania (who in the photo was with BC!) and some other bimbo, you can’t just write that off. That’s who he is. But supposedly he runs for office and wants to drain the swamp. When did he have this supposed change of heart? He promised two main things when he ran: build the wall and repeal Obamacare. Once in office, he immediately surrounds himself with swamp creatures, the debt and deficit balloon, nothing is done about the Fed Dept of “Education”, the wall doesn’t get built, Obamacare is still the law of the land. Oh, and he fully supported and pushed the creation of the vaccines! Gail, respectfully, all of these can only lead to one simple conclusion, the one I stated at the beginning. For me, and again, I’m being respectful, I see too many Christians who simply wanted to believe so badly that DT was our guy, that they’re willing to suspend all rational belief so that they can hang on to what they WANTED to be true. Look, I wanted it to be true as well. But I’m not going to go against all that I’ve seen and heard with my own eyes and ears.
        I firmly believe that DT is part of the small group of so called elites who rule us. He’s fully in with the Clinton’s, the Bush’s, and that group of slimeballs. Are elections rigged? Yes, they are. But the 2016 election was also rigged to get him into office as that served the purposes of our overlords.
        Again, this is just my opinion. Everyone has their own.

      • So true, Misha has been a great example, and maybe I just didn’t notice it before, but particularly of late. I myself feel compunction seeing such a gentle response.

        And indeed I am touched to see you admit it yourself. It’s definitely one thing to realize it when we are treated badly, another thing to ask ourselves to find the good in what (I could name certain individuals) are saying which tend to be against prevailing opinions. Of course, where civility and respect are otherwise followed.

        • Well, if it’s someone who I feel is making assertions in good faith from a kindred perspective, then that’s one thing. If it’s some lefty shooting rubber bands at the moon, that’s quite another.

  3. There is more than one actor working on the Dark Side.

    They hate the Rus as much as they fear and hate the Christians
    The Khazarians hate the Nazis as much as they hate the Rus.
    They hate the Rus as much as they fear and hate the Christians.

  4. Antiochene Son says

    Is there a law that allows a president to stay in office during martial law? My understanding is that the president’s term ends at precisely 12 noon on January 20 regardless of any circumstance, and if the successor is uncertain Amendments 12, 20 and 25 come into play.

    There is no constitutional means to stay in office that I can see, and I personally don’t believe martial law itself is constitutional. The Organized Militia (today the National Guard) is for repelling invasions, which isn’t the issue here. The stolen election is a law enforcement matter, not a military one.

    But I don’t particularly care; I don’t buy any of this Q-anon stuff about Trump’s secret machinations. When he failed to grant a pardon to the January 6 protestors, who answered his call and he didn’t lift a finger to help them, I washed my hands of him. (Though I was already basically done with him; he did some important things with the courts, but overall he did not hold a candle to my hopes for him in his amazing inaugural address.)

    If he was going to declare martial law, he should have done it when the Floyd protestors were burning down the country. I simply don’t believe he is capable of being a “secret strong-man” when his actions have so often been weak.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Normally, the president’s term does end on January 20th but when the military takes over, they decide what is going to happen.

      If the military is involved, it’s because they believe there was outside interference with the elections which undermines the Constitution. This is a pretty serious thing with on-going consequences if not addressed, unlike the George Floyd thing which was a one-time occurrence (not that they won’t do it again with something else) planned by Antifa.

      • Antiochene Son says

        Is this handoff to the military procedure described in law anywhere? I’m not understanding where this theory is coming from. Unless it’s plain “might makes right,” which would be playing out openly if true.

        Biden is legally the president (whether he should be or not) and until I see him in cuffs and somebody else standing in the White House I won’t believe otherwise. This is just too much like the imaginings of Sedevacantists.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          Yes. Look at the details of what I wrote. They each have numbers that can be looked up.

          • But…neither of those statutes provide for the President’s term being extended beyond Jan 20th. And even if they did, the Constitution is the highest law in the United States; federal statutes can’t overrule it. If the military did secretly leave a President in power past the expiration of his term, that would itself be an anti-constitutional coup…the situation may be such that such a coup is or isn’t better the most moral course, but it can’t be the constitutional course, surely?

            • Gail Sheppard says

              I didn’t say anything about a president’s term being extended beyond Jan. 20.

              I think everyone accepts Joe Biden is president of [the perhaps now defunct] UNITED STATES corporation, since all the money is gone.

              Subsections 15 and 15(A) in Title 28 U.S. Code § 3002 state the “United States” means— (A) a Federal corporation.” The corporation was created for the District of Columbia, aka Washington, D.C. via the Act of 1871. THE UNITED STATES corporation operates under private international law with their own corporate constitution.

              As far as I can tell, Washington D.C. has been shut down; at least that’s what the fences and guards seem to suggest.

              But what about the United States Republic (the union)? Who has jurisdiction over the republic when a major public emergency interferes with State and Federal law? The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, Section 1076, section 333, title 10 (who actually reads these things!) says it’s the armed forces and when you’re under the jurisdiction of the military, they can pretty much do what they want.

              In any case, time will tell and it’s probably going to be sooner rather than later based on recent developments.

        • AS,

          If this were being undertaken, it would not be in accordance with any procedure anywhere. Basically, someone would have done the equation that once a coup occurs, there can be no legitimate restraint on restoration efforts inasmuch as the regime itself is illegitimate.

          As a practical matter, if there are MI types working on this, what they are planning on doing is probably not to overtly upset the constitutional system but orchestrate things so that Trump is eventually restored. This is indistinguishable to the naked eye from non-MI efforts to further MAGA representation and a Trump restoration. How much is organic and how much is due to the machinations of MI (and the CIA, etc.)?

          Who can say?

          However, unless I had some substantial reason to believe MI was involved I would not hypothesize their involvement.

    • Q-anon is still a thing? Sheesh. I never got into that. I mean, who knows where such anonymous stuff is even coming from? Friends of mine who got into it became downright wierd, I had to disassociate from some. Reminds me of Christians who desperately run after false visionaries.

      I have a friend, a lawyer, Trmp supporter, who worked behind the scenes on the election. She came away badly disappointed and disillusioned at how badly things were organized and how many balls had been dropped going into it. Felt it was real incompetence, made things a lot easier for the other side.

      I too was a big supporter, including early on. After 2020 and a lot of other letdowns, not so much anymore. And I do not believe our salvation, if it comes, will come from any politician in the West.

  5. Rungis: Massive food market disaster
    not the first – US hit 90 in 2 years!

    ‘ Yesterday’s fire that broke out in France, in the largest fresh food market in the world, in Rungis, is impressive in terms of its extent and especially in terms of the causes that caused it.

    In a time of severe food shortages such a disaster cannot go unnoticed.

    The size of this particular center is awe-inspiring as it is an entire city of at least 12,000 workers within the French capital and is a global gateway to continental Europe through which millions of tonnes of products are moved.

    Just the news of the disaster can cause food prices to skyrocket beyond the obvious scarcity.

    Rungis Market spans nearly 600 acres – an area larger than Monaco – with dozens of restaurants, banks, a post office and even a police station. An estimated three million tons of food products are traded annually to feed 18 million people.

    If it was an isolated disaster, perhaps no one would worry. But in the last two years, only in the USA and until the summer of 2022, 90 such incidents took place in corresponding food markets! … ‘

    If once is accident, twice is coincident and thrice is deliberate,
    what adjective can we use to adequately describe ninety-plus?

  7. Fr. A. James Bernstein says

    Romans 9 – 11 assumes that the Jewish People would continue to exist as a unique people until the Second Coming of Christ.
    This was also the assumption of the apostles and early Jewish-Christian Church.
    If present day Jews are not Jews but of another race then how will the prophecies be fulfilled?

    Romans 11:11-36.

    11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! 13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
    25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved,as it is written:

    “ The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
    And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
    27 For this is My covenant with them,
    When I take away their sins.”

    28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.
    33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
    34 “ For who has known the mind of the LORD?
    Or who has become His counselor?”
    35 “ Or who has first given to Him
    And it shall be repaid to him?”

    36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
    God bless you both. I typically love your website (when it is up).

    • George Michalopulos says

      This is a conundrum, isn’t it Fr?

      As I understand the Khazar hypothesis, it is that group that makes up the majority of the world’s Jewry. This was Arthur Koestler’s hypothesis which he wrote about in his last book, The Thirteenth Tribe. Needless to say, this was quite controversial when it came out. Koestler, for his part relied on Medieval letters written by Spanish Jews who wrote about the mass conversion of the Khazar Empire to Judaism. He picked up on this fascinating historical anomaly in the 1970s, before there was any DNA analysis possible.

      Having said that, in my own analysis of Jewish-Christian interactions (written 3 years ago), I did some research into genetics and found that while there is the possibility that a significant portion of the Ashkenazim have some Khazar ancestry, they clearly have mostly Judaic ancestry as well, mostly on the paternal side of things. Other studies would indicate that the maternal component is primarily Celtic/Slavic. Hence, the Khazar hypothesis has been demoted. (True science however is falsifiable, so it’d be wrong to put all one’s eggs in one hypothetical basket.)

      As for the Mizraim, Sephardim and Romaniotes (Middle-eastern, Iberian/North African and Hellenic demographics), genetic markers appear to indicate Palestinian/Judaic ancestry on both matrilineal as well as patrilineal sides.

      This is especially true of the kohanim and Levite class of Jews. Through Y-Chromosome analysis, we can find a direct patrileneal origin going back to at least 900 BC to Palestine. (Basically the time when Zadok, the High Priest of the Davidic kingdom lived.)

      Anyway, I agree with St Augustine that the Jews as a people and religion have to survive until the Eschaton, when in the fulness of time, a large number of them (Revelation says 144,000) will be converted to Christianity and probably save the Church from apostasy. We’ve seen intimations of that phenomenon in the 20th century, with the likes of Richard Wurmbrand, Boris Pasternak, Alexander Men, and Israel Zolli (the former Chief Rabbi of Rome).

      It’s clear to me that as far as mainstream Christianity is concerned, the momentum towards apostasy is accelerating. It’s probably unstoppable at this point. Hence we need as many of “the Tribe” on our side as quickly as possible.

      • And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of the first and the last, who was dead and came to life: I know your affliction and your poverty, even though you are rich. I know the slander on the part of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
        — Revelation 2:8-9

        The biggest mistake is to lump all the evils in the world on the Jews at large. In my business coaching practice, I have coached Hasidic, Orthodox and Reformed Jews, and gotten to know them personally, something most Orthodox Christians don’t normally get the chance to do. They all run small to medium sized businesses. I found them to be a hard working and honest people, and I genuinely like them all.

        They must be separated from the evil elite, who cloak themselves with Judaism and sometimes Christianity, but really worship Lucifer. THESE are the true enemies of Christ. This should not be hard to understand, it is clearly stated in Revelation – those who say they are jews but are not.

      • Shouldn’t the first question be: what is a Jew? If it is defined as a distinct race, then what of the Apostles and their progeny? Are they Jews? That would mean that the Christians of the first centuries were, in the main, Jews. Modern Judaism, apart from the Kairites, is Talmudic, rabbinical and Kabbalistic, with a good dose of satanic Babylon thrown in. Salvation comes through The Church. Does it really matter where you are if you are outside? As for prophecy, many Russians thought Napoleon was the antichrist based on prophecy. They were wrong.

  8. Orthodox Wonderer says

    Ridiculous conspiracy theory pushing like this post are what invalidates the reputation of the reasonable parts of this blog.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      As the blog owner, go suck an egg!!!

    • Honestly, these anti-conspiracy theorists…

      1. Human nature, being fallen, is filled with pride, vanity, greed, violence and lust, all of which make it inevitable that man will not rest until one man alone owns and runs everything on the planet, including the smallest grain of sand. Just stop and think about it.

      2. Take the Rothschilds for example. Was there a time when they only had, say, 1 million dollars? Of course. But did they stop there? Of course not. And so on and on they went until, today, we can say that they might be worth about 300 trillion dollars. And if 1 Million, 2 billion, or 3 trillion dollars wasn’t enough to satisfy them, then neither will 300 trillion; at which point we can easily surmise that the Rothschilds won’t stop until they own and control everything on the planet, including the smallest grain of sand. Am I wrong?

      So there; at least two absolutely compelling reasons for why there is in fact a conspiracy playing out, more or less in the way that any half decent conspiracy theorist would suggest. What do the anti-conspiracy theorists have to say in response to that? And in asking that question, I want them to, at least firstly, only address the two points I raised above; explaining why fallen human nature is not the perfect recipe for the eventual emergence of a one world dictator; and why the behaviour of the likes of the Rothschilds doesn’t show that people are (and for a long time have been) vying for that dictator’s position.

      C’mon, let us see what you got.

      • George Michalopulos says

        Nimrod was the first would-be world dictator and he was the great-grandson of Noah.
        If Nimrod could attempt world domination, then why can’t there be others?

        I believe it was Chrysostom who said that “even if Adam and his descendants had not fallen, the world would have fallen when I came along.” (A paraphrase. Please correct me if I’m wrong.)

    • They aren’t conspiracy theories. If you can point to any inaccuracies in what was written, the floor is yours. What has been done is piecing true facts together to come up with a reason for what is happening. What’s wrong with that? And actually, if anyone with a heart beat doesn’t have their fair share of theories as to the why of what is transpiring during this horrific era in human history, their apathy is part of the very reason we are here.

    • Gail , as usual, has done her homework. Looking at her references, she has presented a solid case. The term “conspiracy theory” is a smear meant to discredit people who question the narrative and present counter-arguments to the “expert consensus.” The hard part is realizing that when you wake up, that’s when the nightmare begins.

  9. Gail has raised a possiblity which I am not prepared to discuss in depth because it is flying in the dark and I’m not fond of such speculation. However, it is entirely possible that military intelligence is working behind the scenes to “set things aright” and that most of us will never know about it, by design. It would be deeply unsettling to the general public to know that power had been misallocated and was being reallocated through the orchestrations of MI.

    You may recall the movie Wag the Dog. I use it as an example only because it is the first one that comes to mind. We could be watching an opera produced by military intelligence (MI) to ferret out the CIA and other bad actors. Basic is another movie example.

    I tend to be an Occam’s razor type when it comes to political machinations. However, it would not be true to form if longtime MI personnel just “stood down” during a real, bona fide coup.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I can tell you this, it has been a wild ride beginning with Monomakhos having a place at the table for the “Stop the Steel/Jericho March” to protest election fraud. You’ve got to wonder, “why us?”

      From there it’s been like I was coached (or just very, very lucky) to be pointed in certain directions at certain times. I’ll be on-line and something will literally pop onto my screen that fills in the blanks. Not with all things, certainly, but with some things.

      If the people I find reliable (all ages, from vastly different backgrounds) come out with the same thing at the same time, it’s my cue to share it with you. However, I do it with some trepidation. I know some of it sounds fantastic which is why I research everything to see how it could even be possible.

      The same was true about COVID.

      My gut feeling is we’ve gotten to the point, especially with the feminization of the military, where something has to be done and I know there are good men in the military.

      I grew up learning to ride polo horses under a Colonel in the Army. For several years, after school, I would take care of his horses and on the weekends he’d take me riding. I grew to respect and trust him. He was a solid man who expected my very best or he’d tell me it wasn’t worth his time.

      Years later my parents took me to a dude ranch and I wanted to show off. They had no idea how much time I spent with
      Colonel Frierson or that I could even ride. (Those were the days when parents didn’t care where you were as long as you got home before dark.)

      I saw a barrel and I took off to circle it to show my parents what I could do. My mother was horrified and my dad or a ranch hand took off after me. I came back around and said, “What??? I can ride.”

      There must be more men like that in the military.

      This was probably my Colonel Frierson as it’s the only one I can find!

  10. Congress just approved another $ 12 billion to Ukraine.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      More “funny money” they don’t have. Crazy people.

      • Congress is as much a joke as the fraudulent Biden. The Deep State which overthrew the Republic is bankrupting the people in this country who work. Add taxes to the crippling inflation and we have no choice but to admit the obvious facts:

        They want us broke and dead.
        They are bleeding the people dry as they fund their overseas accounts from their “cuts” and kickbacks after the fall of the dollar.

  11. This is very difficult because if one is not buying into the mainstream narratives and sees any of the depths of the evil taking place, it is very frightening and the temptation is great to grasp at straws.

    Yes, I did a lot of reading and listening to some purported ex-alphabet agency & military types (most professing to be some species of heterodox Christian) and eventually became convinced this “military to the rescue” narrative is another level of very sophisticated psyop. Nearly every heterodox professing Christian news source I have seen propounding elements of this “Trump working with the military” narrative ends up off the rails spiritually either into New Age or into the “New Apostolic Reformation” which is occultic and deeply heretical complete with false miracles. Even Epoch Times is owned by an Eastern cult.

    Elements of the narrative seem factual: DC, London & Vatican are independent city states. The Federal Reserve is run by a cabal, and it is in collapse. Human trafficking is epidemic & real. The West is being deliberately destroyed by the cabal. BRICS nations are shutting out the central banking cabal and re-establishing their own currency on the gold standard.

    But I am convinced for the West there is no cavalry coming to the rescue. Only repentance, prayer, and true faith in God will preserve us.

    I now mainly listen to our Orthodox Saints and Elders (and more accountable verifiable news sources independent of mainstream. Each of these has their limitations. I like Epoch Times reportage, but their commentary can be quite speculative.)

    Uncreated Light Press, Christian Orthodox Miracles and Prophecies, Gregory Decapolite, and Nicodemos Hagiorite are some of the Youtube channels that are making these available in English translations. Orthodox Ethos is also publishing edifying if sobering content and giving a platform for some contemporary Greek Elders and Priests speaking on the words of more recent Saints and current events.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I don’t look at it as “military to the rescue.” I look at it as doing their job. If the elections were stolen, and I believe they were, what other remedy would we have to right the ship?

      • It doesn’t appear to me the ship is destined to be righted. We are overripe as a nation, it seems to me, for God’s righteous judgment. Look at world history. Look at the history of the OT type, Israel. There are whole civilizations that have sunk into the sea never to rise again. Look at the sad state and worldliness of even so many in our Orthodox Church, who seem oblivious to the evils being perpetrated by this Administration….The Lord certainly has no obligation to preserve this nation; rather the reverse. It has become pagan to the core (with a shallow veneer of religion in places) and has slaughtered the innocent for decades—more than 61 million in this nation alone, and that doesn’t include the havoc our military has been wreaking around the globe also for decades destroying the lives of millions more.

        Undoubtedly, there will be a remnant of genuinely repentant souls. May the Lord have mercy on us! I need to repent and pray. I’m not equal to what is now here—never mind what is coming.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          This is to no one in particular, but I think the ship is righting itself.

          Don’t confuse what’s going on now with other movements where people are motivated by their own self interest saying, “give me this, or give me that; gimmie, gimmie, gimmie.”

          We’re seeing people flood the streets because they just can’t stand by and do nothing watching the suffering of our neighbors; the people who are suffering from human trafficking, COVID, the vaccines, the withholding of life-saving medicines, from lack of warmth and food, from being locked up in prison for speaking the truth, or locked up in one of those high rises in Shanghai screaming into the streets because they’re starving and dying and the government won’t let them out, and of course, those left beaten by the side of the road.

          That people are coming together, around the world, to protest this kind of treatment must please God because in the past, people have rationalized: “It doesn’t affect me, so why should I care?”

          We saw how that turned out, didn’t we?

          Not this generation.

          The new The New Nuremberg Trials (2021), a team of over 1,000 lawyers and over 10,000 medical experts lead by Dr. Reiner Fullmich have begun legal proceedings over the CDC, WHO, the Davos Group for crimes against humanity. Why? Because they just can’t stand by and do nothing when they’ve seen all the suffering.

          The truckers here and in Canada, and the Dutch farmers, have taken a stand. Why? Because they just can’t stand by and do nothing ignoring the suffering of their countrymen if they die of starvation.

          Look at France and the UK. They know people are having to cut wood to prepare for the winter. What about those who can’t? They just can’t stand by and do nothing while their neighbors may freeze to death.

          In Africa and India, they’re pushing back on their governments to protect the young because they just can’t stand by and do nothing when they see their children are being disabled, dying and made infertile from Gate’s vaccines (Gardasil, polio and COVID).

          This isn’t about the military rescuing us. This is about taking care of our neighbor.

          25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

          26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

          27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

          28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

          29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

          30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

          36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

          37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

          Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

          For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’

          Repentance is good. But it’s something we should be doing every day whether we expect the world to end tomorrow or generations from now.

          Even Christ didn’t know the date or time the world would end. Do you know why He didn’t know? Because it entirely depends on us. There are other things He didn’t know, too. He didn’t know he would be helping a Samaritan, as He had come for the Jews, but one Samaritan woman changed His mind. Think of the power of that story! One person can change God’s mind!

          Think of what a whole planet can do.

          So change God’s mind.

          Love God enough to put your well-being in this life, and in the next, on the line for your neighbor. Because that’s what God has asked of you. Anything you do “for the least of these” you will be doing for God.

          So say something! Do something! Show up! Be involved! Care. Ask God, “What can I do to make this better for other people? How can I help?”

          He’ll tell you.

          Love your neighbor. If you do, you’ll have one less thing to repent: you won’t have to repent that you missed this opportunity.

          • I absolutely agree we must come together and love our neighbor. That is what is meant by repentance. It definitely encompasses this horizontal aspect. I do take heart also in the Lord’s promise to work all things for good for those who love Him. The story of Joseph in the OT is one of my absolute favorites.

            Most definitely God will use what is intended for evil for good, and in fact insofar as this is waking people up and these are rising to the call of self-sacrificial giving on behalf of others as in the examples you are giving, salvation is already beginning to occur. I just don’t believe some brilliant US military 5D chess plan will be able to preserve our nation. Something different will take its place, but much diminished, and Christians will be marginalized (by the same token, the Church will be purified and experience growth and grace, just as it did during Soviet times and in China). It will be God by His Holy Spirit working to bring good despite the evil plans of psychopaths in high places.

      • Very well said Anonymous.
        Fr Seraphim Rose wrote about how so many things in the world, theories and such, are designed for one reason: to keep us from focusing solely on Christ, to keep us from prayer and repenting.
        Respectfully, that seems what’s going on here (and to be clear, I’m the first in line of the guilty).

        Gail, from reading this post and from reading you for years, I gather that you have a very high level of trust in our military. I simply can’t share that. That’s based on what they have done for the last seven decades. It’s widely known that today the military is all about the rainbow flag, sex change operations, and every woke idea known to mankind. Do you honestly believe that group of people are doing this out of some obligation to “doing their job”? That seems simply preposterous to me. You are arguing that they have deep devotion to the Constitution. That is simply not true. I mean, none of the wars we’ve been involved in, in the last 7, 8, 10 decades (whatever it is) have been declared by Congress (as the Constitution requires). So if this group of people has such total devotion to the Constitution, then they wouldn’t have gone into these wars that everyone in the US knew were unconstitutional.

        • As a confirmed far-right extremist and conspiracy theorist who is a threat to our democracy, I agree with Anonymous and Alan. This narrative just doesn’t jive. Lots of truth mixed up with fanciful speculation and probable falsehood sown by certain agencies. As Anonymous says, a lot of stuff from the truth movement (even Christians) is straight up new-agey mysticism and syncretism.

    • The channels you mentioned are very helpful to me. Orthodox Ethos shorts are very helpful each day.

    “Did you think there was something wrong with the 2020 election? If you do, did you say anything on Facebook about your doubts? You could be in big trouble with the FBI. According to a story in the New York Post, September 14, 2022, “Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.“

    “Securing the Ukraine’s neutrality is not just part of “demilitarisation”: it could also be called “de-Nazification”, since NATO and its shadow the European Union (EU) were behind the 2014 coup by the Azov battalion and their ilk.

    “But Russia needs a legitimately-elected head of state to sign up to that, and right now that man is Zelensky. A peace deal struck with any military junta which might depose the comedian-turned-president would only be denounced by the next elected leader.

    “Even if a new civilian government was elected on a pro-peace, non-alignment platform (as Zelensky was), it would only last as long as it took the US, UK and EU to organise a repeat of the 2004-05 ‘Orange Revolution’ and the 2014 ‘Euromaidan’ coups d’etat.

    “The crazy Ukro-Nazis and their enablers have to ‘own’ the peace and the agreement to cede the Donbass and Crimea — and thereby lose all credibility.

    “But the Ukraine had already lost the Crimea and effective control over the Donbass before the SMO even kicked off. Kiev won’t sign any peace deal unless it has something else to lose. If Moscow is also serious about readmitting Zaporozhye and Kherson to the Russian motherland following a ‘Yes’ vote in the coming referenda, then there’s nothing to bargain with there either. Russia may need to capture other territories to use as bargaining chips.

    “To do so, it would have to inflict a defeat on the Ukrainian armed forces that would force them to retreat — not only from Donetsk and Lugansk but from other areas, maybe all the way back to the Dnieper river that divides the country in two.

    “Such a victory can’t be won unless Russia regains the initiative and actively starts pushing the Ukrainian armed forces back.”

    • George,

      Personally, I think Zelensky has outlived his usefulness. It will be a disappointment to me and millions of Russian nationals if the Russian army does not take Odesa and connect with Transnistria, thus sealing off the southern coast. With three hundred thousand additional troops, they have the resources to do this, defend the Donbas and Novorossiya and expand westward at will.

      Once the Russo-Ukrainian population is secure, my guess is the gloves come off and they start putting hair on the wall. That may be what is necessary in order for Kiev/DC to sue for peace.

    • Tragically, Zelensky will never make peace. His hatred of Russians is bred in the bone. I have known many people like that. They are unyielding to the point of self destruction.

      • George Michalopulos says

        Katherine, I myself am confused. While I agree with you that “Zelensky will never make peace,” I believe it’s because his Western handlers will not let him do that.

        Case in point: back in April, both sides were meeting in Istanbul and word leaked out that Zelensky was going to make several concessions to Russia, including guaranteeing Ukrainian neutrality and non-integration into NATO. He was also going to honor the Russian language in the Donbass and allow them semi-autonomy.

        Then BoJo flew in and kibbitzed the entire process.

        As for Zelensky’s supposed “hatred” of Russia, I also believe that that is overstated. His first language is Russian and he had to learn Ukrainian in order to further his acting career. Also, about two months ago, I posted a campaign video of his in which he came across as a complete peacenik and Russian sympathizer (“Will the real St Zelensky stand up?)

        73% of the Ukrainian electorate were on board with his presidential campaign and he won by that tremendous margin.

        So what the hell happened? Two things: 1) he couldn’t restrain the neonazis, they in fact took control and told him how the cow ate the cabbage, and 2) the Ukrainian oligarchs and their Western allies decided to throw all caution to the wind and threaten the people of the Donbass, essentially daring the Russians to retaliate.

        Since then, things have gotten immeasurably worse for the Ukraine. Back in April, they would have had an intact country (sans the Crimea) but now they’ve lost four oblasts. That comes to 5 million former Ukrainians, 20% of their remaining territory and 85% of their GDP.

        I imagine that as things now stand, that Zelensky probably does hate the Russians, so in that sense, you’re correct. Having said that, he has nobody but himself to blame.

      • “His hatred of Russians is bred in the bone”

        Not really. He is an actor not a politician. He won presidency because he promised good relations with Russia and Russian speakers.

        • It has been my experience that Ukrainians dislike Russians. The farther west they are from, the stronger the feeling. If we want to truly understand the conflict, we must acknowledge that this generational animosity is a factor. This is the de facto state of human affairs. Turks/Greeks, Croats/ Serbs, Tutsis/Hutus, Montagues/Capulets, etc. Just my opinion…

          • Yes, however, this is artificial, unlike the mutual animosity with the Poles. There were minor efforts at Ukrainian independence before the modern era but historically, the Ukraine was a region of Run’. During the Soviet period, all Ukrainians spoke Russian, at a minimum as a second language.

            Some of the animosity goes back to Uniatism. But most of it has to do with the NZ/Banderist legacy and the modern state of Ukraine’s propaganda since the dissolution of the Soviet Union and especially since the coup in 2014. Since then, the government there has taught unbridled hatred for all things Russian. But this is an unnatural warping of the culture.

            This is a repeat performance, in a way. After the collapse of the SU, the US immediately set out to conquer the world. This first came to a head in the Middle East in the Gulf War, but the first major overt ideological project was Serbia. This is a good discussion with Boris Malagurski on the Duran.

  19. BREAKING: Guided drones fly over
    Norwegian oil rigs in North Sea

    ‘ An alarm has sounded in the NATO Northern Command as the Norwegians have detected (Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority-PSA) unknown, unmanned aircraft flying near Norwegian offshore oil and gas platforms!

    The unidentified drones were spotted at at least six Equinor facilities, including the giant Johan Sverdrup oil field.

    All this after the Nord Steam 1/2 pipeline explosions and after the US was indirectly pointed to as responsible by their Polish allies!

    The country’s largest oil and gas company, Equinor, has already detected drones of unknown origin flying near its platforms without specifying whether they are aggressive or simply reconnaissance.

    “We ask for increased vigilance. We must be ready, PSA said.

    The security watchdog notes that “Unidentified drones could be a source of ignition in explosive areas or could be used for attacks.”

    Last Tuesday, a drone was found 50m away from Equinor’s Heidrun platform in the North Sea, breaching the 500m security perimeter.

    “Drones have been observed at our facilities on the Norwegian continental shelf, ” a spokesman for the company, which has reported the incident to Norwegian authorities, including PSA and police, told Reuters.

    Russian retaliation for Nord Stream pipeline sabotage? No one can say for sure, but the situation tends to get out of hand.

    If the Norwegian oil rigs are hit, then the energy nightmare will be much worse than it is now.

    A $10,000 UAV attack on an oil rig in the far North Sea would destroy the rig and shut down the field for months!

    And all this today when the natural gas pipeline from Norway to Poland and Denmark was inaugurated! ‘

    Explosive-Laden Drone Found Near Nord Stream Pipeline
    Fri, 11/13/2015 – 11:41

    ‘ Ruling out sabotage, the Swedish military has successfully cleared a remote operated vehicle (drone) rigged with explosives found near Line 2 of the Nord Stream Natural Gas offshore pipeline system.

    The vehicle was discovered during a routine survey operation as part of the annual integrity assessment of the Nord Stream pipeline. Since it was within the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) approximately 120 km away from the island of Gotland, the Swedes called on their armed forces to remove and ultimately disarm the object.

    “We don’t consider it to be dangerous to merchant vessels or the pipeline at this point,” Jesper Stolpe, Swedish Armed Forces spokesman, told Radio Sweden. According to Stolpe, the cable used to control the drone and to set off the explosive was cut off, so at the moment the vehicle is relatively harmless.

    The national identity of the drone has not been verified so far, as many countries use Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) of a similar construction, Stolpe said ‘

    OK, so the Swedes ruled out sabotage…
    Did that include attempted sabotage?

  24. Why Additional Engineered Pandemics Are To Be Expected
    ‘No biodefense research is purely defensive – to do the work,
    you’re automatically engaged in the creation of biological weapons.’
    Dr. Joseph Mercola


    ‘ Early on in the COVID pandemic, Francis Boyle, Ph.D., was sure it was the result of a lab leak. He believes monkeypox is another lab creation, as it now suddenly has 30 mutations from the wild monkeypox found in Africa

    President Biden recently signed the Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy, and this order basically promises we’ll see additional manmade pandemics

    Section 12, paragraph VII in Biden’s executive order states that the purpose of the order is to “develop and work and promote and implement … dual-use research of concern, and research involving potentially pandemic and other high-consequence pathogens”

    That means they intend to perform gain-of-function research on deadly pathogens, any one of which could be released to create a global pandemic when a scare event is necessary to trick populations into choosing a false sense of safety over freedom. Boyle believes there’s no doubt there will be additional pandemics, because they’re intentionally creating them

    Boyle believes monkeypox was engineered and released in an effort to scare governments and populations into accepting the World Health Organization’s pandemic treaty, which would make the WHO the sole decision-maker in pandemic situations

    In this interview, repeat guest Francis Boyle — whose background includes an undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago, a juris doctor (lawyer) degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. in political science — shares his views on the latest efforts to instill fear in the public, this time about monkeypox.
    [Video – 01:00:14]

    For decades, Boyle has advocated against the development and use of bioweapons, which COVID-19 appears to be. He called for biowarfare legislation at the Biological Weapons Convention of 1972, and drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act, which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law by George Bush, Sr. in 1989.

    Early on in the pandemic, Boyle was sure COVID-19 was the result of a lab leak. In fact, he was one of the first to bring that up. Of course, for the past two-plus years, anyone who shared the lab leak theory was vilified, discredited, censored and deplatformed. Today, we know that information was true, and even mainstream media are starting to report on it.
    White House Admits More Pandemics Will Be Created

    As detailed in “Executive Order Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda,” President Biden recently signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy.”1 As noted by Boyle, this executive order basically ensures the creation of additional bioweapons:

    “It’s a very lengthy executive order. At the very end, they give it all away, where it says, [in Section 12] Paragraph VII, that the purpose of this is to ‘develop and work and promote and implement … dual-use research of concern, and research involving potentially pandemic and other high-consequence pathogens …’

    Now let me work that out for you. ‘Dual-use research of concern’ means offensive and then defensive biological warfare weapons. The Bidenites admit here that their agenda is to promote and implement more offensive biological warfare weapons. That’s what ‘dual-use research of concern’ means.

    Then, to try to perfect these weapons with some type of bogus vaccine involving reverse engineering or something like that. Notice, they admit they are going to develop these offensive biological warfare weapons, ‘involving potentially pandemic and other high consequence pathogens.’

    They are going to research, develop more biological warfare weapons like COVID-19, that the United States government was involved in. They admit this right here.

    Now, you listen to the mainstream news media and everyone is saying ‘Yes, the next pandemic is coming.’ This is where it is coming from — right here, ‘dual-use research of concern involving potentially pandemic and other high consequence pathogens.’” … ‘

    Accelerating Toward Dark Enlightenment

    ‘ Not many people have heard of “accelerationism”; I certainly hadn’t. The term is attested in economics from the mid-1970s, and in the sense of hastening the onset of technosociety from the early 2010s, as a new coining attributed to Benjamin Noys, an English professor of Critical Theory. It is in that latter usage, just a decade old, that I use the term in this article. So it comes as a bit of shock to discover that accelerationism is already seemingly everywhere.

    Accelerationism has apparently been adopted by many of the most powerful people and institutions on the planet. It is widespread and influential.

    When the World Economic Forum signed its Strategic Partnership with the United Nations, it claimed that the purpose was “to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. In his 2021 letter to shareholders, the CEO of BlackRock, Larry Fink, referred to acceleration seven times: for example, “the pandemic has also accelerated deeper trends”, or “the reallocation of capital accelerated even faster than I anticipated”, and “momentum continues to build, and in 2021 it will accelerate—with dramatic implications for the global economy”. Recently, the UK Government launched its Innovation Accelerator, and, in his recent statement on the alleged British economy growth plan, the Chancellor of the Exchequer (UK Finance Minister), Kwasi Kwarteng, said:

    [W]e are publishing a list of infrastructure projects that will be prioritised for acceleration[.] [. . .] I can announce that we will accelerate reforms[.] [. . .] We will liberalise planning rules in specified agreed sites, releasing land and accelerating development [. . .] for ten years, there will be accelerated tax reliefs for structures and buildings.

    During the pseudopandemic, the World Health Organisation established its Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. The UK Ministry of Defence established its Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) in 2016 as a public-private partnership for the “exploitable innovation” of defence technology.

    Speaking in 2020, Joe Davis, Chief Economist for the global investment giant Vanguard, wrote an article, pre-empting Fink’s sentiments, discussing how “the pandemic has accelerated some trends already in place”. In a section he entitled The Future Accelerated, he wrote:

    [T]he pandemic functioned as a call option on employers’ incrementalism. No longer could work-from-home arrangements serve as controlled experiments in productivity; they became indispensable. Ready or not, employers for the most part have successfully enabled secure and efficient work from home and redefined team dynamics. [. . .]
    COVID-19 has also accelerated the challenges facing restaurants and brick-and-mortar retailers. E-retail and food delivery, already growing in popularity before the pandemic, have become essential to consumers worried about face-to-face interaction.

    Davis’ statement reveals a bit more about this notion of accelerating. Most of us think of it as the present participle of the verb “accelerate”; simply an adjective to describe motion and little more. But Fink and Davis appear to be among those who ascribe a different meaning to the notion. “Accelerating” to them also implies disruption; a catalyst for change accomplished in leaps and bounds rather than by steady progress.

    When we then discover that “accelerationism” is a distinct socio-political philosophy, it is reasonable to ask whether all of these “accelerators” are, in fact, based upon an ideology. Is there more to this concept of “acceleration” than meets the eye? Does use of the term by people like Schwab, Fink, Davis and Kwarteng mean more than just “quicken”?

    The Accelerationist Left

    In his useful exploration of accelerationism, the Guardian’s Andy Beckett outlined the core beliefs of its exponents, the accelerationists:

    Accelerationists argue that technology, particularly computer technology, and capitalism, particularly the most aggressive, global variety, should be massively sped up and intensified [. . .].
    Accelerationists favour automation. They favour the further merging of the digital and the human. They often favour the deregulation of business, and drastically scaled-back government. They believe that people should stop deluding themselves that economic and technological progress can be controlled. They often believe that social and political upheaval has a value in itself.

    He also provided his view of what accelerationism is not:

    Accelerationism, therefore, goes against conservatism, traditional socialism, social democracy, environmentalism, protectionism, populism, nationalism, localism and all the other ideologies. … ‘

    So that is the policy: out-of-control acceleration, forget the cliff
    and the globalists will pick up the pieces
    for a song…

  31. Looks like some of the French are still Free…

    French general to those who were not vaccinated:
    “You endured the persecution – You are today’s superheroes”

    “You are the soldiers every army of Light would wish to have in its ranks”

    ‘ In an open letter that has caused an uproar across Europe, French general Christian Blanchon praised citizens who refused experimental vaccines for COVID -19.

    Despite years of pressure campaigns, discriminatory policies, social exclusion, loss of income, threats, the French general thanked the “unvaccinated” for their strength, courage and leadership:

    More specifically, Christian Blanchon said:

    “Even if I were fully vaccinated, I would still admire the unvaccinated who withstood the greatest social pressure I have ever seen in my life. Pressure from friends, fellow doctors and even from spouses, parents or even children.

    People who have displayed such abilities of personality, courage as well as critical thinking undoubtedly embody the best examples of humanity.

    These people are everywhere, in all walks of life, of all ages, education levels, countries and opinions.

    It is of a certain kind.

    They are the soldiers that every army of light would wish to have in its ranks.

    They are the parents every child wishes to have and the children every parent dreams of having.

    They are beings above the average of their societies .

    It is the essence of the peoples who have built all civilizations and conquered horizons .

    They are there, next to you, they look normal, but they are superheroes.

    They did what others could not do. it was the tree that withstood the hurricane of insults, discrimination and social exclusion.

    And they did it because they thought they were alone and they believed they were alone.

    Excluded even from their families’ Christmas tables, they have experienced nothing so harsh.

    They lost their jobs, let their careers sink, and had no more money…but they didn’t care.

    They suffered countless discriminations, complaints, betrayals and humiliations… but they did not bend. They continued.

    Never before in mankind has there been such social pressure.

    But now we know who the real resisters are in our world.

    Women, men, old, young, rich, poor, of every race and of every religion, the unvaccinated, the chosen ones of the invisible ark, the only ones who managed to resist when everything came crashing down.

    You have passed an unimaginable test that many of the toughest Marines, , Green Berets, astronauts and geniuses could not pass.

    You are made of the greatest who ever lived, those heroes born among ordinary people who shine in the dark.” ‘

    I would guess that, in this context, ‘Green Berets’ refers
    to the Legion paratroopers of La Deuxieme R.E.P.
