Trust No One

[Editor’s note:  This isn’t the normal fare for Monomakhos, but it’s an interesting read nonetheless.  We get a lot of information from alternative sources and oftentimes, they are ahead of the curve.  Ben Fulford is one such source.  Believe it or not, you will see that there’s a Greek Orthodox connection.] 

As for Ben Fulford, he has 20 years experience as a professional writer and journalist.  He has sold over 500,000 non-fiction books written in Japanese and has produced a comprehensive catalogue of scoops in fields ranging from business to Yakuza gangsters to high finance to government corruption.  Now focused on exposing U.S. manipulation of Japanese politics, media, and education through a combination of bribes, murder, brainwashing, etc., Fulford says “my goal [now] is to counter U.S. propaganda and expose the Japanese people to the truth so that they may free themselves from the colonial yoke and use their $5 trillion in overseas holdings to end world poverty and save the environment.”

Neither Gail nor I necessarily endorse his assessment.  When he’s right, he is right on the money.  But he just reports what his sources tell him.  That said, much of what he has published in the past has been true.  We don’t include anything that can’t be corroborated with the other sources we use on a routine basis.  As such, we are merely putting it out there in the interest of getting the word out.  You can judge for yourself whether to believe it or not.]  


The world is going through a fundamental shift as the Western world is being cured of its Satanic infection. The result will be an unprecedented era of world peace and prosperity. This will be the legacy of the “make love not war,” the hippy generation.

However, before this new age can start, some final housecleaning is being done. This can be seen in the international isolation and financial collapse of the fake Joe Biden regime in the United States. The collapse is accelerating as the Khazarian Mafia’s puppet “Biden” regime falls into pariah status.

[Editor’s note:  the so-called Khazarian Mafia is a reference to the Khazars, a group of semi-nomadic Turkic tribes that settled in what is now the Ukraine in the sixth century AD.  According to Judah Halevi (d. 1141) and Abraham ibn-Daoud (d. 1180), their khagan, Bulan Khan had converted to Judaism sometime around AD 800.  In time, some of the descendants of certain noble Khazar families became influenced by the Kabbalah, an esoteric set of doctrines derived from Neoplatonism.  Certain false messiahs of the early modern period (such as Shabtai Z’vi and Jacob Frank) may have been descended from these Khazar families.  In any event, they adhered to even more occult –that is to say, demonic–forms of the Kabbalah.  There are persistent rumors that the Rothschild family (among others) adhere to these doctrines as well.  Needless, to say, much of this is extremely controversial.]   

As an example, last week Biden called a summit of the “Americas” only to be boycotted by the majority of states in the region. Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Uruguay and Bolivia were among the countries to boycott the meeting. Leaders of countries that did attend, like Argentina and Belize, took the opportunity to criticize him.  This is an unprecedented slap in the face to an American president, to say the least.

The rest of the world, including Africa, the Middle East, Asia (except for the Japanese and South Korean client-states), and a large part of Europe, is also shunning the openly criminal US Corporate government. That is why an international boycott against it is causing an economic free-fall there.

Before we go further into the boycott of the US Corporation, let us look at the Iberoamerican revolt against it because huge and under-reported events are taking place in Latin America.

“What I can say with some certainty is that there is a general feeling of disgust here towards what the [Khazarian Mafia] have turned Anglosaxony into, and more generally, the West, including parts of our own countries,” says a source who claims to have just finished extensive talks with Portuguese and Spanish power brokers.

That is why the Russians have begun stationing troops and warplanes in Latin America as a move to counter NATO incursions on its own borders, other sources say. This news item, for example, confirms that Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has invited Russia to deploy its armed forces in the country “for humanitarian purposes.”  

Our sources in US military intelligence say the troops are already there along with a contingent of Chinese special forces.  [Some call this “bluster,” but we believe it.]

This revolt against the US Corporation is why Iberoamerican narcotics gangs have stopped supplying adrenochrome to the Western elites. They have now taken action. Last week Mexican police arrested a “Nelson N” the alleged head of an international gang of pedophiles.  “Nelson” was inexplicably released by Dutch authorities despite being found in 2020 with over 19,000 pornographic images of infants and children. 

For more information about “The US Corporation,” please see the following:

Holandés, presunto líder de un grupo internacional de pedófilos, es detenido en CdMx – SinEmbargo MX

What the Spanish article linked above fails to mention is that hundreds of naked children, each bearing an identification number, were freed during the arrest of “Nelson,” according to Mexican intelligence sources.

CIA sources for their part reminded us that at his trial, Sinaloa Cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, “stated in court that Comex helped launder $150 million in cartel money for [US House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi.” It appears only those who were at the trial are aware of this, the CIA source notes.

The Mexican sources also told us the Mexican drug cartels are all united at the higher levels and are ruled over by a single individual, a Mexican national who sits one rank above the publicly-known cartel bosses. This unidentified person, Mexico’s most powerful, is taking orders over the phone from an individual in Greece, they add, this Greek person in turn reports to people in the Orthodox Church who also have ties to Vladimir Putin, Russian FSB sources say.

Once the North Americans are liberated from the KM, the Iberoamerican sources say they welcome the idea of creating a super-state uniting North and South America. Reflecting this, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called for just such a thing at a Press conference saying “The option is [continental] transformation and you have to dare to do it. And you don’t have to keep thinking about the next election, you have to think about the next generation.”

In Europe, the alliance is close to finishing off the KM crime state known as Ukraine. The Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, now predicts Ukrainian resistance could even be broken in the next four to five weeks.

The fall of Ukraine is likely to be accompanied by the collapse of KM rule in the West.

Polish intelligence sent us the following report on moves to dismantle the KM control nexus in the West:

The collapse of banks around the world is imminent. It is a heavy blow for the Bauer family (the original name of the Rothschild banking family).  A few days ago, the Federal Reserve Board in Washington was fenced off and locked. Four days ago, the federal police entered Deutsche Bank and shut it down. The same thing happened at the Bank of England. Almost all banks nowadays are monitored and controlled by the judicial police. A “Black Swan Event” is coming. The money donated by the Rothschild family to their agents Soros and Rockefeller was eventually discovered around the world. As a result, the Bilderberg Group and the Great Economic Reset of the Davos Forum have just been defeated. A major operation to clean up the corrupt money flows of the past 75 years is underway. This flow led to the manipulation of countries by corrupt political parties all bought off by the Rothschild family. Now corporate funds like Vanguard and BlackRock are in FREE collapse. All corporate CEOs are under investigation on quasi-military charges of treason and money laundering to foreign nations. The Black Swan event is global in nature and is causing the biggest economic, financial and stock market crisis in history. They have all the evidence needed to put the CEOs of banks and other major corporations in prison for life. Their puppet presidents are falling … There is evidence and witnesses of the infiltration of the leadership of n 203 countries by the Bilderberg Group and Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.

As a result of this police action along with the global boycott of the West, the Russian official Tass News agency says:

The processes that will take place in the EU [and the US] in the coming 18 months will be similar to those that Russia went through in the early 1990s, with large population groups plummeting into poverty and governments canceling many social security benefits. Consequently, many everyday things – like having a cup of coffee in the morning – will become a luxury.

Kim Dotcom just did the math to show the US had debt and unfunded liabilities worth $259 trillion or $2,067,000 per US Taxpayer. Even if you sold (which you couldn’t) every piece of land, real estate, all savings, all companies, everything that all citizens, businesses, entities, and the state own you would still have $66 trillion in debt.

The rest of the world is no longer going to foot the bill. This is why another group of eight nations – China, India, Russia, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Iran, and Turkey – has been established to lead the boycott. It is 24.4% ahead of the old group of developed countries in terms of GDP and purchasing power parity.

For example, in clear a clear sign Europe is being deliberately choked off from its energy supplies, last week US gas exports by Freeport LNG, one of the first and largest U.S. exporters of LNG, were stopped by a massive explosion

This is definitely meant to make sure the EU has no alternative source of energy other than the non-Western world.

The international boycott of the West means the US has been going through its strategic oil reserves at a rate of 7.3 million barrels per week. The reserve is now at its lowest level in 35 years and the pain has only just begun.

Crude stocks in the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve fall to the lowest level in 35 years – The Limited Times (

The Biden regime announced the May 2022 consumer price index was up 8.6% year on year for the highest jump in 40 years. However, if you use older methods for calculating CIP you find prices jumped 16.8%, the highest rate in 75 years. This is costing each American about $1000 per month extra. And, this is just the beginning as these price jumps show:

  • liquified natural gas 141%
  • gasoline 91%
  • oil 61%
  • iron ore 45%
  • wheat 39%
  • nickel 39%
  • corn 30%
  • cotton 30%

No wonder 83% of Americans describe the state of the economy as poor or not so good, according to a Wall Street Journal-NORC Poll.

As the Russians know from the bitter experience of the 1990s, the hardship has only just begun. That is why authorities are planning a harsh Covid-style lockdown in the event of fuel shortages.

Speaking of Covid. More and more revelations about the criminal nature of this scam are pouring out by the day. For example, as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. points out: “The CDC is not an independent agency. It is a vaccine company. The CDC owns over 20 vaccine patents. It sells about $4.6 billion dollars of vaccines every year.”

We are also now getting evidence the entire pandemic/vaccine scam was planned years in advance. Below you can watch the planners of this say:

“So let’s create an emergency scenario by releasing a virus, make everyone panic, and then we give them our experimental ‘vaccine’ so everyone becomes the guinea pigs and we don’t have to go through the usual long testing processes before approval.”

That’s how they “blew the system up”. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. Even the FDA admits: “Significantly Elevated Risks & Long-Term Effects — confirming deaths from Myocarditis as a result of the mRNA vaccines.

The CDC also now admits evidence grows stronger for the Covid vaccine link to heart tissue damage.

We also see a huge jump in vaccine-induced heart inflammation in children

There is so much more being written about vaccine damage elsewhere we will leave it at that. However, did you know the X files exposed the virus to the world in 2018 (“My Struggle II” Season 11 Episode 10-2018)? This means they were filming it in 2017 around the time the Covid tests were being prepared and distributed. How is it they already knew what was coming? Our readers all know, all of this was planned long ago.


The vaccine crimes are just the tip of the iceberg.

For example, Disney Channel actress China McClain confirms the entertainment industry has a Satanic agenda: “There’s a reason why you see people dressed up as Satan, upside-down crosses or pentagrams on their clothes. People think this stuff is just a game. It’s not.”

As a reminder, in 2016, FBI director James Comey was briefed on Hillary Clinton linked to child sex crimes based on evidence found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The 2018 IG Report also cited Clinton Foundation and crimes against children. NYPD sources said these new emails include evidence linking Clinton herself and associates to:

  1. Money laundering
  2. Child exploitation
  3. Sex crimes with minors (children)
  4. Perjury
  5. Pay to play through Clinton Foundation
  6. Obstruction of justice
  7. Other felony crimes

The world will not rest until these criminals are rounded up and face public Nuremberg-style war crime tribunals. THIS WILL HAPPEN.

When the criminal regime collapses, only then will there be a jubilee (debt write-off), a redistribution of assets, and the launch of a new golden age. . .” 

As we said, there’s a lot here, and frankly, some of it stretches the imagination.  There’s a new meme going around:  “What’s another way of saying ‘Conspiracy Theory?’  Answer:  Spoiler Alert.”

    The article does not pass my litmus or stink test. Too damn fantastic.
    Should become the plot to the next Bond movie

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Oh, and this is just the beginning! If what we’re hearing is true, people are going to freak out! It was the same when we first started talking about COVID 2 years ago. People had a hard time believing what we said about the vaccines, although there is ample evidence out there now.

      • Gail is right, and so is most of the article. I have been aware of Fulford for some years but have not followed him closely, I hope he is correct about the downfall of the Rothschild interests but… I think he has presented hopeful thinking on multiple occasions before, and they have been so deeply entrenched for so long, it is hard to believe this is immanent. No doubt we are in for a rough ride and most of the western Church (Orthodox) has been lulled asleep by decades of easy going. (Although talking with several elderly women in my parish about storing food this past weekend, they seemed to be already aware of the need for doing so. Maybe the laity is ahead of the clergy!)

        • Although talking with several elderly women in my parish about storing food this past weekend, they seemed to be already aware of the need for doing so. Maybe the laity is ahead of the clergy!

          When I was a kid my grandparents always had canned food they had made stored. They lived through the depression and knew what it meant to have no food so they always had extras.

          People my age (early 30’s) and younger have zero concept of what that would even look like, including me. But I’m taking cues from things I’ve seen and have started stocking up on food and seeds. But if the worst of the worst comes to pass then at that point that’s just civilization collapse and anything goes

          • Christine says

            We all should be doing this as just a matter of how we live our ordinary lives with or without inflation,threatof war, or the plandemic. Having a prepper pantry with two months of food is a no brainer and is not hard to do if you just buy a bit extra with each shopping trip. Having a small garden to grow produce, even if it’s in pots on an apartment complex roof, with seeds at hand, is a no brainer. Having water on hand and also a way to filter tap water is a no brainer. These are life lessons that the plandemic should have taught us! What more signs are people needing than to start these simple life-saving activities? All you have to do is start! If people need help with these concepts, go to YouTube and search for homesteading or prepper food pantries for sensible and practical guidance.

    • See this on the Saker:

      …and thanks to Misha for alerting me to it

      • The author mentions a group in America that opposes the European Great Reset:

        “There are, however, some indications that there may be divisions within western elites. Some of them, particularly within the US, may be resisting the primarily Europe-designed Great Reset – but whether this opposition is real or effective remains to be seen.”

        I assume this is MAGA leadership/sponsorship. Therein lies whatever hope we have of a relatively softer landing.

        • In Scots Law:

          ‘ Reset is the dishonest possession of goods obtained by another, by way of theft, robbery, fraud or embezzlement, in the knowledge that they were obtained that way.

          Reset is also being privy to the retention of dishonestly obtained property. ‘

          …which pretty much sums it all up!

        • Μωλον Λαβε says

          Yes, there are many well-armed conservative God-loving people in the US and A.
          However, what these people in various communities lack is organization and planning. Work within your own church and community first.

          It is very unlikely that in the RURAL areas that LEO, sheriff, even national guard or active-duty military will follow illegal orders against the people……
          We all gave the same oath…..and most of us still adhere to it.

          Beans, bullets, band-aids……and bagpipes !!

          • I saw videos of militia types champing at the bit and ready to drive to DC in late December 2020 and early January 2021. All Trump had to do was give the word. They were serious and armed to the teeth, as many good ole boys are.

            Now, what would that entail? It depends on the element of surprise. If the govt saw them coming it would go badly for them. Otherwise, they could make a dent. Consider that the 1/6 demonstrators were unarmed. Not encouraging or participating in any such thing but just to give you the facts regarding sentiments in the hinterlands.

            I don’t see how the liberals can prevail in this without imposing a true police state. And when that police state bears teeth that people in the South and Southwest begin to feel, there will be hell to pay. Here in Dixie, other than the masks from the coof on public transportation, we have been relatively unscathed. Up north it was much worse. Projecting that model onto the South would be the red line.

      • I read this article while sitting on my patio. I then went inside to share it with my wife and went back outside to the patio. Within one minute (I kid you not) of sitting back down, a helicopter flew in low from the north, circled my home, hovered, and then flew to the east.

        Not reading too much into this coincidence, but suffice it to say that it was creepy.

  2. Joseph Lipper says

    Everybody knows that Pope Francis is behind the Mexican drug cartels. To suggest that it’s the ROC instead is just anti-Russian propaganda.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      You got any evidence of that?

    • Not sure if you’re being facetious but I would actually believe it would be Pope Francis and the RCC over the ROC with ties to the cartel given that the RCC has a history of things like this (and much worse) and Mexico is a Catholic country.

  3. This is just “operation trust” style propaganda. They’re always about to be defeated. Identical to Q anon. Just causes complacency.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Cause complacency? I guess we didn’t get the memo.

    • I’m with you. As I was reading this, I kept thinking to myself….this is Q Anon. The bad guys are always “just about” to be held accountable. LOL. Even up to Jan 19, 2021 the Q Anon folks were still claiming this.

  4. Macron has lost his coalition majority in France. Moreover, Le Pen’s party moved from seven seats to close to 90 seats, a meteoric rise. This is in addition to the increasing instability in Germany, the UK and Estonia. Lithuania is sanctioning Kaliningrad though it will still receive necessary goods by sea. We will likely see the unraveling of the EU in the coming years due to the tensions created by the West’s anti-Russian offensive.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Also, the Bulgarian government is set to fall (as is BoJo’s in the UK).

      What’s especially sad about the Bulgarian situation is that they no longer have an air force; they and Slovakia have given all of their aircraft to the Ukraine.

  5. While they make many good points, seems a bit too fantastical.

    • George Michalopulos says

      I tend to agree. Or I used to. For the life of me, I can’t understand why the West is grinding on with these insane sanctions against Russia, when they’re clearly hurting the denizens of the West. It’s almost like a controlled demolition of our collective economies.

      It’s either that or they’re incredibly stupid. I don’t know what else to say.

      • George,

        I think they are irrational and they do not appreciate cause and effect like normal people. They think the US can do anything and get away with it. So they push green even though it causes energy shortages and inflation. They sanction Russia, even though it blows back on them, doesn’t seriously hurt Russia, and drives America into a recession and Europe into a depression. They think they are invincible and they will not admit mistakes but simply pivot and memory hole.

        That is the fashion in the West and so that’s what they do. It is a form of the corruption that affects all empires in decline. They have assumed the Uniparty is firmly in charge and that they are untouchable. Even with the rise of MAGA and if Trump returns, I doubt that most of the high notables will face prosecution. The Uniparty simply wouldn’t allow it.

        Personally, my view is the best we can hope for is not justice but a morphing into America First dominance. But that is only if the MAGA crowd has the balls to put the Dems out of business for good. The media will have to be dealt with since it is the subconscious of the public. But Tammany Hall must burn.

  6. Joseph Lipper says

    The Mexican drug cartel members are all pious Catholics, and the bosses are pillars of their local parish communities. Although Pope Francis has made a few comments against the cartels for the sake of good optics, in his 2016 visit to Mexico he largely avoided the problem of cartel-related violence. Instead, he focused on the topic of economic inequality, a topic that affirms the very work of the cartels.

  7. Μωλον Λαβε says

    Hope in one hand and poop in the other……which hand fills up faster ?
    The only hope (gnosis) I have is in Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    My 2 cents…….
    Sanctions ? Greek shipping are making out like bandits ! Another shipping insurance company might be created to break Lloyd’s back. (and in turn, City of London. Britain just needs to ……. go away)
    Ukraine…….done deal. Weapons dealers made their money, Ukraine fighters led like lambs to slaughter. Russia has decisive victory, may take all of Ukraine (and should). Might not turn off fuel to Europe as a humanitarian gesture, but need to keep pounding the corruption and incompetence of EU / US leadership
    Lithuania……what BS promises were they made by EU/US/NATO ? This should be a nothing burger if their leadership wakes up to reality that if Russia wants they’d be smoked like a cheap cigar.
    Norway & Finland……visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads western BS.
    Turkey…..keep a close watch. Fence sitting a balance between Russia and NATO. May become another lynch pin. Geostrategically in excellent position for ME and Med. If they withdraw from NATO will be a major game-changer if they play it smart and nicer with Greek flank.
    Greece……Mitsotakis is another US pawn….like all the others before him. Interests lie towards Russia not west. Once NATO falls apart consider relations with Turkey and Russia.
    Syria and Iran…….West trying to create another flash point. Both countries in Russian court. West trying to create enmity in ME with KSA, Qatar, Bahrain aligned with US making… Israel……monkey in the middle. How many psychopaths does it take to run a country ? KSA is king maker in ME, rest will follow, unless Pakistan.
    Did I mention…….China ?……stay tuned !

    Do you think The Wall coming down was because of Western pressure and weakness of USSR ? Think again. USSR becomes Russia…. still remains…..bear. Existential threat now become many smaller fires. Portray appearance of weakness and when the time is right and your opponent becomes complacent with hubris…..

    Do not underestimate the insanity of a psychopath to destroy everything when matters have not gone their way. Who here is the real psychopath ? Western or Eastern powers.

    Either way you slice it, we are undergoing major tectonic shift…..slowly at first and then all of a sudden……Like the Coney Island roller coaster…….cotton candy and wheeeeeee !!

    I bid you all Peace.

    On another note, I trust that every father (or godfather) out there had a wonderful Father’s Day. I certainly did! 😉

  9. I started down the road of the “conspiracy” sites discovering Alex Jones and the 9/11 inside job stuff in ’07, so I have been reading these sites for many years. IMO you have to be careful with them. I believe these are also disinformation / propaganda sites funded by various entities and/or even supported by various Intel agencies. They put out a lot of good information but you need to get past the kookiness and disinformation, too. Especially Fulford, a lot of what is there is fanciful BS. Ultimately the coal is to depress you and throw you off course. – shows the satanic influence of the mass media, with a focus on music and movies. Of course the author is not named. Somehow I think it’s and industry insider – or the industry itself – wanting to show what it’s about. Once you understand the symbolism you will see things in a new light. A must visit. – Jeff Rense is another guy like Ben Fulford, another news aggregator. Sometimes to get some kernels here but be pushes the alien agenda hard. As we know the aliens will eventually be revealed but they will be demons. – Henry exposes the “sata nic je wi sh banker” side, with occasionally posts from actual satanists. Links to some useful information, but he might be one of them himself, exposing the inside agenda (I think these guys like to show their power and influence over people).

    Others that are interesting: – Karl Denniger’s site has good arguments and the forum is useful. – Jay Dyer at Jay’s Analyis does a great job harmonizing Orthodoxy with the apostasy in the modern world, he’s unafraid to connect the many dots that need connecting.

    Moon Over Alabama – seems like insiders discussing the Ukraine war in real time.

    Jim Stone is another one.

    I like this guy’s videos on Orthodox Miracles and prophecies:

    WHAT IS AMAZING is that for the most part the Orthodox leadership has been asleep at the switch, afraid to address head on the true cultural rot, and the fact our leaders literally worship Lucifer. From Lucis Trust, who runs the prayer room at the UN:

    Yes, these guys are revealing their evil plans for us, but GOD is in control, and yet at the same time he will allow peoples and nations to fall into sin if they so desire.

    Lord Have Mercy!

  10. This is precious, from Sonar21.

  11. Pretty fantastical stuff but TBH at this point I’d believe anything.

    It was the same when we first started talking about COVID 2 years ago. People had a hard time believing what we said about the vaccines, although there is ample evidence out there now.

    Too true Gail, hence my above statement. I’ll believe anything at this point!

  12. Tunisia’s New Constitution:
    Islam is no longer the official religion of the state

    Tunisia’s president announces new constitution without Islam as official religion

    ‘ Kais Saied confirmed on Tuesday that a draft constitution to be put to a referendum on July 25 would not establish Islam as the “religion of the state”.

    The move is part of efforts to reform Tunisia’s political system, which has been accused of being corrupt and chaotic, but is also seen as a maneuver to sideline rival Islamic parties.

    “Tunisia’s next constitution will not mention a state with a religion of Islam, but an umma (community) whose religion is Islam ,” he told reporters at Tunis airport.

    “The umma and the state are two different things,” he said. … ‘

    The result of this refererendum will be…interesting…

    • One of these days, someone will make a film entitled “The Month That Shook The World” about the period from February 22, 2022 – late March, 2022. That period covers the run up to the Ukraine War through the stabilization of the ruble after the initial wave of sanctions. The period will actually be remembered as more portentous than the “Ten Days” of the Bolshevik Revolution. We will look back on it as the point at which the decline of the West was locked in and the rise of Eurasia took over.

  15. LonelyDn says

    Forgive me if this was posted elsewhere here, but this is newsworthy:

    Sergei Chapnin, a senior fellow at Fordham University’s Orthodox Christian Studies Center, was at an academic conference in early June when he began to hear from people in Russia that his articles on Public Orthodoxy, a blog hosted by the center, weren’t available. He soon discovered that the Russian government had blocked the site completely inside the country.

    “It’s clear that the critique of our Orthodox Church and (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s regime was really sharp,” said Chapnin, who worked for the Moscow Patriarchate from 2009 to 2015, including a stint as editor of the official magazine of the Russian church.

    Public Orthodoxy operates independently of any official body of the Orthodox Church, and contributors to the blog represent a wide range of Orthodox Christian traditions. Since 2015 Public Orthodoxy has been posting articles on the environment, women in the church, the relationship between faith and politics and related topics.

    “The idea is that we have a global network of scholars in a multitude of disciplines to weigh in on issues of current concern in the Orthodox Church,” said George Demacopoulos, professor of theology at Fordham and co-director of the OCSC. He added that Public Orthodoxy is “written not for scholars,” but rather “for public consumption.” It appears in seven languages, including Russian.

    “We’ve been writing about the threat of Putin to Orthodoxy for years,” added Demacopoulos. “In some sense, I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner.”

    But since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Public Orthodoxy has focused almost exclusively on the Ukraine crisis.

    In February, monthly traffic to the site doubled from 30,000 to 60,000 views, reaching a peak at 160,000 views in March. Readers spread outside its accustomed Orthodox religious and scholarly communities, including staffers at the U.S. State Department. Contributors began debating the theological foundation to Putin’s action in Ukraine, much of it supplied by Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, along with a host of other issues facing the Orthodox Church in light of the conflict.

    “The position of Patriarch Kirill in this war, in his sermons and public statements, revealed for many how deep, in fact, the church is involved in Russian politics,” said Chapnin.

    Public Orthodoxy’s exploration of that entanglement is likely what caused Russia to block the site, according to Chapnin. “For the state, even the critique of the church and of Patriarch Kirill is not as sensitive as the critique of the Kremlin or Putin’s regime,” he said.

    According to a report produced by three Russian human rights organizations for the United Nations in May, in the last two years Russia has increased the power of Roskomnadzor, the Russian federal agency that oversees communications and mass media, to block media as the agency chooses. These restrictions only accelerated with the Russian invasion in late February.

    Legal scholars at Stanford University’s World Intermediary Liability Map, a project that tracks internet regulations worldwide, said the legislation allows the government to target information the Russian state considers “fake news.”

    While Public Orthodoxy’s sponsors are glad to have the increased readership at a crucial time for Orthodox Christianity, they seem to have taken especial pride in being blocked by the Kremlin.

    “I congratulate … all the editors and authors of the Public Orthodoxy blog with this ‘recognition’ by the Russian state,” Chapnin tweeted on June 2.

    In an interview with Religion News Service, he added, “If they decided to ban a web project with a small audience, that means they take seriously the critique and they have some kind of fear that this critique will reveal something important.”

    False Flag Alert! Russia Accuses CNN of Working With Ukrainian Nazis To Film Staged Killing of Civilians

    The Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD) on Thursday accused left-wing US media outlet CNN of conspiring with the Ukrainian military’s neo-Nazi Azov fighters to film a staged attack on civilians.

    In a press release on their Telegram, as most Russian government agencies have been banned by major Western social media companies, the MOD specifically claimed Ukraine’s 72nd Centre for information and Psychological Operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in Kharkov are preparing a false flag.

    The statement, titled, “Statement of the Joint Coordination Headquarters of the Russian Federation for Humanitarian Response,” said Ukraine will soon unleash “another cynical provocation with deaths amongst civilian population to accuse the Russian Armed Forces of launching indiscriminate attacks against civilian facilities.”

    Russia alleged elements of the Ukrainian military are taking hospital staff and sick children from around Kharkov and moving them to the city’s First Child Health Hospital, which is supposedly known to be wired with explosive mines.

    “The building of the hospital is mined and neo-Nazis are planning to explode it as soon as Russian troops launch artillery attacks at the military facilities in Kharkov,” the Russian government said. “Correspondents from leading Western news agencies have already arrived in the city to prepare fake photos and videos.”

    Who are these Western news agencies?

    None other than CNN is directly named by Russia as having “two reporters” being “escorted by 10 servicemen of Azov nationalist battalion.”

    The CNN correspondents were said to have “arrived in Odessa for recording prepared terrorist attacks on civilian facilities in order to accuse Russia of using prohibited methods of warfare.”

    Continuing, the Russian government again said they do not have a policy of attacking civilian infrastructure, a notion supported by their slow-paced military tactics used in the Ukraine operation thus far.

    Furthermore, the statement noted multiple instances where “nationalist battalions,” otherwise known as neo-Nazi brigades, have occupied and placed military equipment in “educational institutions, houses of culture and other social facilities.”

    Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government warned the people of Europe and North America “that the abovementioned and other provocations by the Ukrainian authorities about the ‘atrocities of the Russians’ are soon to be widely circulated through the Western media and in various resources of the Internet.”

    This accusation coming from the world’s largest nation, which is constantly in the news regarding the war in Ukraine, is extremely hard to find online in America while it should be a massive story.

    As independent journalist Clandestine joked in his Substack newsletter Thursday, “It’s fine. Just CNN working with Nazis in Ukraine to film a planned terrorist attack and blame it on Russia, to cover up for their Deep State overlords who got caught making bioweapons in Ukraine. Nothing to see here folks.”

    Dissecting the thought process behind false flag attacks being waged by Ukraine, Clandestine explained that “logically speaking, it benefits Ukraine much more for Ukrainian civilians to die, than it befits Russia.”

    “Civilians die and they can push emotional propaganda, the world comes to aid Ukraine, and Putin is viewed as a dictator. But what happens when Putin doesn’t kill any civilians, and starts exposing the biolab network? The Nazis take it upon themselves to kill the civilians,” he wrote.

    These tactics align with those used by the American CIA, which helped train the Nazi Azov brigade on-record.

    It seems like the Deep State is becoming more desperate to cover up their crimes in Ukraine, from the illegal biolab network to shady business deals and money laundering.

  21. Vatican joins Paris Climate Agreement despite inclusion
    of abortion, population control agendas | Fri Jul 8, 2022

    ‘ VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – The Vatican announced today that it has formally joined the Paris Climate Agreement, known for its underlying abortion and population control agenda.

    A statement issued by the Holy See Press Office said that Archbishop Gabriele Giordano Caccia, Permanent Observer to the U.N., on June 6 deposited before the Secretary-General of the United Nations the Holy See’s Instrument of Accession, the formal document by which the Vatican joined the Paris Climate Agreement.

    “The Holy See,” the statement reads, “in the name and on behalf of Vatican City State, intends to contribute and to give its moral support to the efforts of all states to cooperate … in an effective and appropriate response to the challenges posed by climate change to humanity and to our common home.”

    The Vatican claims that in joining the Paris Agreement it is expressing its solidarity with the poor and future generations as those most affected by “climate change.”

    As LifeSiteNews has previously reported, however, it has long been noted by pro-life advocates, that the 2015 Agreement includes an underlying agenda to push abortion, contraception, and sterilization as necessary means of controlling the population and minimizing human consumption and use of the earth’s resources. The way such things are imposed on poorer countries is by linking them to desired funds and resources.

    In text of the Agreement, such issues are cloaked in phrases such as “gender equality” and “empowerment of women,” and are joined to the presumed need to address climate change in a “toss in everything” approach. The Agreement states:

    Parties should, when taking action to address climate change, respect, promote and consider their respective obligations on human rights, the right to health, the rights of indigenous peoples, local communities, migrants, children, persons with disabilities and people in vulnerable situations and the right to development, as well as gender equality, empowerment of women and intergenerational equity.

    Pro-life advocacy group Voice of the Family pointed out in 2015 when the Climate Agreement was first drafted that the U.N.’s “Sustainable Developments Goals use ‘gender equality’ and ’empowerment of women’ to advance abortion and contraception.”

    Goal Five of the Sustainable Development Goals, which is to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls,” includes the following target, to be achieved by 2030: “ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights.”

    As Voice of the Family warns, “The United Nations Population Fund states that ‘sexual and reproductive health’ includes access for all to ‘the safe, effective, affordable and acceptable contraception method of their choice,’ which includes methods of contraception that are, or can be, abortifacient. The Population Fund also supports other methods of abortion, stating: ‘where abortion is legal, national health systems should make it safe and accessible.’”

    Other U.N. documents such as the July 23, 2015, report of the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) titled “General recommendation on women’s access to justice,” also use the phrases “gender equality” and “empowerment of women” to push for greater expansion of abortion and contraception, calling on nations to “decriminalize behaviours that can only be performed by women such as abortion.”

    In spite of the abortion agenda pushed by the U.N. and included in the Paris Climate Agreement, Pope Francis praised the agreement from its first adoption. In 2015, the pontiff said, “The climate conference has just ended in Paris with an agreement that many describe as historic.”

    The Pope then called on all nations to join in fulfilling its goals. “Implementing it,” he said, “will require unanimous commitment and generous involvement by everyone.”

    “With the hope that special attention for the most vulnerable populations is guaranteed, I exhort the whole international community to proceed on the path undertaken in the name of an ever more effective solidarity.”

    Again in 2020 the Pope said of the agreement, “We need to do everything in our capacity to limit global average temperature rise under the threshold of 1.5°C enshrined in the Paris Climate Agreement, for going beyond that will prove catastrophic, especially for poor communities around the world.”

    Today’s announcement comes only one day after the European Union adopted a resolution titled “US Supreme Court decision to overturn abortion rights in the United States and the need to safeguard abortion rights and Women’s health in the EU,” in which the E.U. defends abortion as a “fundamental human right” and “calls on the governments of those states which have passed laws and other measures concerning bans and restrictions on abortion to repeal them and to ensure that their legislation is in line with internationally protected women’s human rights.”

    Many see the Vatican’s accession to the Paris Climate Agreement today as yet one more step along what Voice of the Family called “the steady reversal of the Holy See’s former vigilance on this issue [of abortion] and the increasing incidence of the Vatican and international anti-life and anti-family forces working together, despite the Holy Father’s public condemnations of abortion.” ‘

    Pachamama Papa: “With the hope that special attention
    for the most vulnerable populations is guaranteed…”

    And who are more vulnerable than unborn babies?
    And what special attention is offered? Abortion!
