Spring has Sprung, and
Change is in the Air

Did the petrodollar die this week? It is at least the beginning of the end, as oil is sold in yuan and countries like Russia are placing much of their wealth into yuan. The banking sector in the west is still feeling the shock of the bank failures last week, as other banks sit at the brink of collapse. Lula had planned a trip to China but caught pneumonia. I wonder what they plan to discuss, perhaps a Ukraine peace plan? Meanwhile things are not going well for Ukraine as Russian forces continue their advance.

In Pursuit of Power

Open Thread Image.jpg

Biden has expanded his powers by declaring a "National Emergency" over the Ukraine proxy war. It only took his signature. Whatta democracy! Clayton will explain his expanded powers in a clip below the fold. Meanwhile we have the US ambassador in China declaring the US as the major power in the region as we sell more weapons to Taiwan. There's also been more fall out from the "lockdown files" as it has become obvious the pandemic was used as a power grab. So we see individuals, nations, and corporations all pursuing ever more power and control.

War Upon War...

Open Thread Image_1.jpg

TPTB have China in their sights, and the propaganda is cranking up...spy balloons, the "CHINA" flu, they're sending weapons to Ukraine (as if we are not?), they are going to invade Taiwan (their own province) get the idea. The proxy war against Russia in Ukraine isn't going well for the west, and several leaders called out the NATO nations in India this week. American arrogance isn't selling well across they world. Then we have another ongoing war... against us, we the people, by the global elite who are certain they know how we should live and behave. They have an agenda planned.
This graphic illustrates the propaganda message...

Scott Ritter on Tank Realities

Ritter provides detailed information on the reality of tank warfare in Ukraine, as well as the maintenance nightmare as described by American veterans.

He also gives a history of the Banderite fascist Nazi armed groups supported by the U.S., starting with the CIA after WWII.

The most memorable part of this vital piece by Ritter is a quotation of remarks by Petr Bystron in the German Parliament.

Food Fight!

Open Thread Image.jpg

Big pharma and big ag have teamed up to feed us crap, make us sick, and sell us drugs for the condition. The WEF is involved in the scam as well, wanting you to eat bugs and halt animal production.

The World Economic Forum is committed to helping define the agriculture industry agenda and drive change that boosts well-being and improves the global food system.

Today lets look at a saner approach as we review the news of the week.
