The Weekly Watch
Change is in the air, and it is more than just the season. It is not just leaves that are falling, but the US empire, the USD, our lifespans, the quality of life, and much more. This week I caught the clips below describing various aspects of our fall, many are righteous rants.
My favorite interview of the week was with Doug Macgregor and George Galloway.
Col MacGregor: THIS is How Billionaires Took Social Media Control (17 min)
Excellent wide ranging discussion of our situation.
This war is all about people getting rich in Washington while thousands die on the battlefield. Combat veteran Col Douglas Macgregor doesn’t hold back.
Another great conversation about the decline with Larry Johnson and Stephen Garner. If you don't have time for the full 30 min, watch the last 15 or so.
In the interview, former CIA agent Larry Johnson discusses various pressing topics, including Senator Bob Menendez's indictment, the Ukraine-Russia war news update, the southern border crisis, and President Biden's actions.
Topics in order...
- He mentions that Bob Menendez has been indicted for alleged bribery and selling classified information to businessmen in Egypt, highlighting the Democrats' discomfort with this distraction.
- Regarding the Ukraine-Russia situation, Johnson discusses Poland's changing stance due to economic interests and historical tensions. He emphasizes the strain on NATO unity.
- Johnson also comments on the US's potential involvement, stating that it might be the last to give up on Ukraine and discusses the Pentagon's role in this decision.
- The conversation briefly touches on General Millie's remarks about supporting Ukraine and the country's financial situation.
- Larry Johnson talks about Zelensky's secret meetings with financial institutions, speculating on potential investment opportunities and challenges in Ukraine.
- The discussion shifts to the US-Mexico border crisis, with Larry Johnson emphasizing the need for state-level action, National Guard mobilization, and Governor Abbott's role in border security.
- The interview concludes with a mention of Donald Trump's plan to address border security by deploying military personnel.
My favorite righteous rant of the week comes from Irish EU MP, Mick Wallace, speaking to NATO and other MIC reps.
How do you sleep at night??! - MEP Mick Wallace- speech from 19 Sep 2023
3 min followed by several min of mealy mouthed NATO reps denying their role in war.
Clare Daly also had a good 3 min speech in the Subcommittee on Security and Defence
When is enough enough? MEP Clare Daly- speech from 19 Sep 2023
'Silent Coup'—How corporations rule the world w/Matt Kennard (45 min)
The 20th Century saw a great global uprising against European imperialism as the former colonial countries shook off their shackles and rose up for independence. More than a half century later, global inequality is sharper than ever before. To understand the current predicament of the vast majority of the world's people, we must understand the intervening decades. Matt Kennard and Claire Provost's book, Silent Coup: How Corporations Overthrew Democracy, looks inside the international architecture of global corporate governance that exists to flout and crush any attempts by the former colonial world to enact development on their own terms. Matt Kennard joins The Chris Hedges Report for a look at this intriguing and essential history.
His accent and the speed with which he speaks was a little hard to follow for me. I put on the captions to better understand. Much of his story revolves around the IMF and chokehold of debt. He tells of some successful suits, but it reminded me of the Steven Doniger saga...TPTB won't let us win.
I wonder if TPTB will allow this researcher to continue monitoring Google's internet activity. Quite an interesting and revealing explanation of how google runs a giant psyop.
How Google Shifted 6 MILLION Votes To Joe Biden! w/ Dr. Robert Epstein
Worth all 40 mins. How nice there's finally a way to see what Google is up to.
Former Harvard psychology professor and current director of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT) Dr. Robert Epstein joined The Jimmy Dore Show to discuss his investigations into electoral manipulation by Google and other tech giants. He claims that Google’s underhanded machinations directed 6 million extra votes to Joe Biden in 2000. Jimmy, along with guests Craig “Pasta” Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger, talk to Dr. Epstein about his remarkable research and just how much duplicity is coming out of the company that long ago abandoned the “Don’t be evil” motto.
George Galloway has the ass at Google too.
We Are Mugs To Allow Billionaires To Accrue Social Media Control (10 min)
a king's Council giving evidence in Parliament has been censored by Google ...
we went quietly into that good night, we were so excited about the existence of social media it did not occur to us that the more we used it the more money the trillionaires earned and the more power they had at any time to turn off the tap...
after all anybody at all can be accused of anything at all...
First they came for Julian.
...this week they came for Russell.
In an coordinated and purposeful hit job all the UK papers and tabloids accuse Russell of sexual misconduct (years ago). I saw a picture of a UK news stand and literally all the papers led with a front page cover of the story. Now keep in mind none of the women came forward on their own, nor made a formal complaint in a court of law... it was just MSM reporters digging up dirt on Russell.
Allegations of sexual impropriety and abuse by comedian and podcaster Russell Brand by the British media prompted YouTube to demonetize the star’s popular channel on September 20.
The Grayzone can now reveal that YouTube’s financial censorship of Brand is the result of an effort waged by a former British government minister who was responsible for London’s crackdown on dissent during the Covid-19 pandemic. Her husband has also participated in that campaign of state repression as deputy commander of 77th Brigade, the British Army’s psychological warfare division.
YouTube justified its demonetization of Brand on the grounds that he violated its “creator responsibility policy.” This marks the first time a content creator has been financially punished by the company for reasons other than the videos published on the site. A spokesperson has claimed, “if a creator’s off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action.”
Russell with his 7M subscribers is a threat to deep state, so cancel him...similar to off with his head.
However Russell still has 1.5M subscribers on Rumble, so what to do. Demand they demonetize him.
UK Parliament Demands Russell Brand CANCELLED On Rumble! (7 min)
A detailed look at the MP's letter to Rumble asking them to demonetize Russell's videos.
Rumble's letter to the MP was classic.
TPTB used allegations of rape against Julian, why not pull the same trick again.
Isn't interesting YT is keeping Russell's content available, but it has been demonetized...for Russell but not YT.
Russell is just the canary in the mine. The UK and EU have both passed so called digital safety laws, ie "Ministry of Truth" committees, coming soon to the US. Both laws are sold as a way to control the platforms. But we know it is meant to control the voice of the creators and require the platform to remove those TPTB deem unworthy.
The bid to create CBDC is another threat to our freedoms.
This Is BAD: Digital Currency Announced At G20 Summit! (10 min)
At the recent G20 summit in India, a representative of the group’s Financial Stability Board announced that a global digital currency, as well as digital IDs, would soon be coming, much as the two are already commonplace in India. These “innovations” are of course being sold as a great convenience to the general public, but the real driving impulse is more likely the control such measures would give to the kind of elites who run the G20 and the FSB like to wield.
This is coming to a theater near you. Prepare now while you can. Keep a stash of cash at home. If you can afford it, think about buying some silver and gold. Go ahead and make those investments around your home to make your life more convenient.
I used to think this was fear mongering by the republicans, but I was wrong. Perhaps this is part of the globalist plan to decrease nationalism through dilution? No matter there is a government effort to promote illegal immigration...
Warnings! Invasion of U.S. is about to get worse coming from Panama (16.5 min)
Folks this is being orchestrated by the US. What do you think is the motivation?
"This is an act of war!" 6,000 illegal aliens invading U.S. each day (17 min)
The migrant crisis has spread across the U.S. and Europe. Why!? The island of Lampedusa, Italy is now completely overrun with migrants outnumbering Italians by 3-to-1. Why are so many local governments admitting the crisis and federal governments are not? Is this a globalist agenda? It sure feels like it.
The UN General Assembly...
met this week and the theater presented a western play called "Russia is Bad, Putin is Bad, We are Good". You can judge for yourself. Here's Biden's speech transcript. "Elensky's was if anything even worse.
And of course no one in the west is covering Lavrov's speech. All I could find is a video of Lavrov's assembly speech on the expansion of NATO. (20 min) Edit to add: a written summary (hat tip QMS), and more a full transcript of the assembly speech and the press conference (hat tip ggersh). Interesting I can't find a transcript. However, perhaps speech of interest is the one to the security council. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at the UN Security Council meeting “Upholding the purposes and principles of the UN Charter through effective multilateralism: maintenance of peace and security of Ukraine,” New York, September 20, 2023
Ukraine is on the ropes despite hitting Crimea with missiles and drones.
Scott Ritter speaks on Ukraine's dilemma.
Distort the Reality and Live the Lie (35 min)
The US propaganda machine is beginning to lose their enthusiasm for the Ukraine proxy war. Many think there are efforts afoot to freeze the conflict, but I don't see Russia doing that since they have the upper hand. The US may be trying to force the situation providing Ukraine with long range ATACMs (despite current denials), in order to strike within Russia to promote a freeze.
Is Western Support for Ukraine Crumbling? w/Alastair Crooke (25 min)
Seems like support in the US and EU for the proxy war with Russia is waning to me.
Rand Paul Issues Issues Stark Warning To Biden, Senate, & House About Ukraine Funding
On the Senate floor, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) warns that he will not support more funding for Ukraine. (11 min)
Of course, US generated conflict is broader than just Ukraine.
The US occupies about a third of Syria, the primary oil and grain region. This illegal occupation never is discussed in the western media. During Biden's UN speech I kept thinking about that hypocrisy along with Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and our array of coups across the global South. What willing blindness! No, it's Russia, Russia, Russia...bring on the 2 mins of hate!
Why Syria's President Assad's Visit to China is a Game Changer- (17 min)
Carl Zha talks with Rachel Blevins about significance of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and First Lady Asma al-Assad's first official visit to China in almost 2 decades. What does it mean for Syria-China relations and China's role in Middle East peace process. How will Assad's visit shape China's Belt and Road Initiative in the Middle East. How US foreign policy toward Syria and China shaped the China-Syria ties.
Another conflict which I suspect we are pushing in Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Armenia pushed towards disaster scenario (20 min)
"They will have to leave or be killed" Armenia REVOLUTION unfolds, calls for new government (17 min)
Journalist Patrick Lancaster joins Redacted to bring a firsthand report from Armenia where violence and protests have unfolded over the past 24 hours. Calls for revolution, and the overthrow of the government are persistent. Right now 80,000 Armenians are trapped with no way out as Azerbaijan has block them from leaving.
As the seasons change, so does the world. Now is perhaps the greatest shift in the balance of power in my lifetime. So many interlocking pieces forces me to think the plan was laid and developed for decades (much like the plandemic). Seems we are evolving into a bipolar world with the globalist west and the cooperative multinational BRICS+ block. The economic situation will be critical as we move forward, and the signs are not good. Now is the time to stockpile useful things, my friends. Build community where you live and online.
I look forward to your ideas, stories, and analysis below. Have a great Sunday!
