  1. The “fog of war” is crystal clear from an accounting position.

    The cycle of money life is a perpetual motion machine of debt and interest. The cycle of weaponry life is forever replenishing expended stock. Where it is expended matters not. The freedom of the Ukrainian people is a tragic farce with Zelensky its thespian lead. He should get an Academy Award for his performance. Had they chosen peace by conceding to Russian demands for neutrality they would not have become eternal debt slaves. But, then, this would have been a lost opportunity for predatory lenders. Waving the mass line yellow and blue virtue flag is a crime against humanity. Those not killed will toil their mortal coil to solvency dust. Soros sold himself to Ukrainians in preparation for their enslavement despite their antipathy to Magyars. They saw coming only what they wanted to see. The Hungarian revolving door trick is best left behind the curtain of this global drama.

  2. In 2018 Justine Trudeau said “That when a government violates a Canadian, any Canadian’s fundamental rights, and allows them to be tortured, there are consequences and we must all pay”.

    Torture: the action or practice of inflicting severe pain as a punishment of FORCIBLE means of persuasion.
    – – great suffering or anxiety

    Does this apply to truckers who have been locked up?

    Does this apply to ministers in Canada who have been locked up while mosques are still open?

    Does this apply to the millions of Canadians who have been shunned, not allowed to leave the country, not allowed in church, stores, restaurants, theatres, etc. ONLY because they decided to not be vaccinated?

    What happened to our rights? Go to hell Justine and take all your Build Back Better Collaborators with you.

  3. Obama team which targeted Syria is now running 2nd U.S. proxy war with Russia

    Who really is running U.S. foreign policy these days?

    The same Obama administration operatives responsible for the Benghazi disaster and who targeted Syria with one of the most expensive covert wars in history are now directing Joe Biden’s multi-billion dollar proxy war with Russia, this time in Ukraine.

    You don’t hear much about Syria from Biden, who was part of the Obama team that pumped multiple billions of dollars into arming and training Al Qaida and other jihadists to overthrow Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

    “As in Syria, the U.S. is flooding a chaotic war zone with weapons in a dangerous proxy conflict against Russia, raising the threat of military confrontation between the world’s top nuclear powers,” Aaron Maté noted in an April 20 analysis on substack.com.

    “Their efforts to remake the Middle East via regime change, not just in Syria but earlier in Libya, led to the deaths of Americans – including Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. officials in Benghazi in 2012; the slaughter of countless civilians; the creation of millions of refugees; and ultimately, Russia’s entry into the Syrian battlefield,” he wrote.

    Susan Rice, then the National Security Advisor, is now Biden’s Domestic Policy Council Director which is a “joke” according to former Trump acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell. “[T]here’s no question that she’s running domestic and foreign policy,” he said in a Fox News interview in January 2021.

    Jake Sullivan, then a top deputy to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, stated in a February 2012 email: “AQ [Al Qaida] is on our side in Syria.”

    Sullivan, the current national security adviser, is one of several officials who ran the Syria proxy war under Obama to now occupy a senior post under Biden. The group includes Secretary of State Antony Blinken, climate czar John Kerry, USAID Administrator Samantha Power, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, NSC Middle East coordinator Brett McGurk, and State Department Counselor Derek Chollet.[…]

      • Briefing on a provocation against the Russian Federation prepared by the USA and NATO with the accusation of using nuclear, biological and chemical weapons

        April 23, 2022

        Statements against Russia

        The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation possesses the information related to the preparation of provocations by the United States of America in order to accuse the Russian Armed Forces of using chemical, biological or tactical nuclear weapons. This plan has already been developed and represents a response to the success of Russia in conducting the special military operation.

        Only in March and April senior officials of the Western countries have been making regular provocative ‘warning’ statements. The mass media propagate the points about the possibility of using weapons of mass destructions by Russia.

        For example, the National Security Advisor J.Sullivan has commented on Biden’s words that the USA “in kind” to the possible use of weapons of mass destructions by our country. And on February 27 the American permanent representative to the UN Greenfield announced an intention of Russia to use any instruments ‘under a false flag’, including chemical and biological weapons for intimidating the Ukrainian population and the international community.

        Against this background, the US State Department considered positively the transfer of up to 400 sets of personal protection equipment, 390 NBC reconnaissance devices and 15 ‘Stryker’ reconnaissance vehicles.

        Examples of falsification

        We inform you that this kind of projects has already been implemented many times by the USA for achieving its goals. The most vivid example of an information provocation is the speech of the US Secretary of State Colin Powell on February 5, 2003. The vial with laundry detergent in his hands provided a pretext to invade Iraq and caused death of half a million civilians.

        In 2017, the widely spread photographs of the ‘White Helmets’ that showed people taking samples in a site of the alleged sarin attack and using simple gauze bandages, while the people standing around lacked any personal protection equipment, caused a missile attack on Shayrat airfield in Syria.

        And in 2018, a staging of the Syrian children who had been allegedly poisoned by chlorine caused the destruction of a scientific research centre in Barzeh and Jamra. Only the testimony of the witnesses of those developments who had been brought by the Russian Federation to the Hague have opened the eyes of the international community to these events.

        Until now, no one has been held accountable for these provocations.

        Staging scenarios

        This time there are three scenarios to be applied in order to accuse the Russian Federation.

        The first one is a ‘staged incident under a false flag’ that is the most probable.

        This could include a real use of chemical and biological weapons that would cause deaths among the population or staging ‘sabotages’ from Russia at the facilities of Ukraine involved in the development of components for weapons of mass destruction.

        The abovementioned scenario can be implemented in the chemical and biological facilities located in Kharkov and Kiev. There also may occur a provocation in the nuclear energy facilities: above all others, it could refer to Zaporozhie Nuclear Power Station controlled by the Russian Federation. On April, 21, a convoy of 10 motor vehicles that was transporting dangerous goods to the nuclear station was stopped and turned about to Zaporozhie.

        In addition, the leadership of Ukraine is seriously considering striking at the radioactive waste storage facility at the former Pridneprovsky Chemical Plant in the village of Kamenskoye in Dnipropetrovsk Region. The Ministry of Defense has documents confirming the critical condition of the storage facility and the inappropriate spending of funds allocated by the European Union for the maintenance of the facility.

        The second one refers to a ‘Maximally covert use of weapons of mass destruction in small volumes’ for neutralising the will power and the capacity to resist within the fulfilment of a particular operational task.

        This scenario was supposed to be implemented in ‘Azovstal’. But the order of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief to cancel the assault of the entity has frustrated the plans of the Pentagon.

        The third and the least probable one is the ‘overt use of weapons of mass destruction at a combat area’ in case of failure to succeed in using conventional armaments in the combat zone.

        This scenario was considered for Slavyansk and Kramatorsk that had been transformed into fortified towns.

        The high probability of staging the application of chemical arms is confirmed by the facts of the supply of antidotes with toxic substances to Ukraine. Only in 2022, on request of the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine, more than 220 thousand of vials with atropines. This fact is an evidence of a targeted preparation of a provocation that includes the use of toxic nerve-paralytic substances.

        Incidents investigation

        The US State Department has already determined the procedure of investigation and has assigned the officials who will be responsible for its implementation.

        The chemical incidents will be investigated by the attributive staff of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that permits to fabricate the necessary proofs and to sentence the responsibility as it can be seen fit.

        It will be essential to gather evidence at the scene (sampling, questioning of witnesses, photo- and videographic documenting).

        The investigative mechanism applied to the cases of possible use of biological weapons will be put in operation with the authorisation of the UN Secretary-General that determines the expert panel basing on his own preferences.

        It is planned to involve the Red Cross International Committee representatives equipped with means of personal protection and indication to operate in the combat zones to which the NATO representatives will have no access.

        Staging results

        Staged use of WMD is aimed at accusing Russia of using prohibited weapons with the subsequent implementation of the so-called «Syrian scenario», in which the state is subjected to economic and political isolation, as well as exclusion from international organizations, including the UN Security Council.

        A possible way forward is to put pressure on the countries loyal to and friendly to the Russian Federation, including India and China, to compel them to impose sanctions on our country.

        We would like to recall that the Russian Federation completely destroyed its chemical arsenal on September 27, 2017, which is confirmed by an OPCW certificate. In turn, the United States, with its strong financial, economic and technical potential, is the only country party to the Chemical Weapons Convention that still possesses an impressive arsenal of chemical warfare agents (672.5 tons).

        CIA Director Burns’ statement about Russia’s possible use of tactical nuclear weapons is absurd. With the current level of technical equipment of the international nuclear test monitoring system, it is impossible to conceal the use of such weapons. If the CIA director does not understand this, then he is either unprofessional, or he is being misled.

        The biological weapons programs in the USSR were completely phased out in 1972. At the same time, the number of U.S. biological laboratories is incomparable to other countries. According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Washington controls 336 laboratories in 30 countries, which is of great concern.

        Features of U.S. legislation

        Note, that contrary to its international obligations, the U.S. has retained domestic legislation that permits biological weapons work.

        The United States ratified the 1925 Geneva Protocol with a number of reservations, one of which allows for the retaliatory use of chemical and toxin weapons.

        Under the U.S. «Uniting and Strengthening America to Obstruct Terrorism Act» research into biological weapons is permitted with the approval of the U.S. government. Participants in such research are not criminally liable for developing such weapons.

        Given the blocking by the United States of any international initiatives to verify the Biological (Toxin) Weapons Convention, there are prerequisites for violating international agreements on the non-proliferation of biological weapons.

        Unmanned aerial vehicles

        We noted earlier that Ukraine had sent a request to the manufacturing company about the possibility of equipping the Bayraktar drones with aerosol attachments.

        It is a matter of concern that on 9 March Russian reconnaissance units in Kherson Region discovered three unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with 30-litre containers and equipment for spraying formulations.

        According to available data, in January 2022, Ukraine purchased more than 50 such devices through intermediary organizations, which can be used to apply biological formulations and toxic chemicals.

        On April 21, 2022, a container with ampoules was dropped onto the position of Russian troops from a drone. It was planned that their destruction would cause a chemical reaction that would cause an explosion and fire, releasing toxic substances not included in the convention lists.

        With regard to the contents of the ampoules, a chemical analysis is carried out in laboratory 27 of the Scientific Center of the Russian Ministry of Defense, accredited by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the results of the analysis will be sent to its technical secretariat in the prescribed manner.

        WMD

        In addition, I would like to recall that today the United States is the only state in world history that has used all three types of weapons of mass destruction.

        The dropped nuclear bombs during the Second World War on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the use of toxic chemicals in Vietnam and Iraq – all these crimes were not properly assessed by relevant international organizations.

        Thus, in an attempt to discredit the special military operation of the Russian troops, the Kyiv regime, at the suggestion of the American administration, is able to implement scenarios in the near future that will lead to the death of tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens and cause an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe.

    • CNN – US Department of Defense establishes control center for Ukraine military aid in Germany, official says

      The Department of Defense has established a control center to coordinate shipments and “streamline the delivery” of military assistance to Ukraine with both US and allied forces in Stuttgart, Germany, within the US European Command area of responsibility, a senior US defense official told reporters on Tuesday.

      The EUCOM Control Center of Ukraine, or ECCU, is based at US European Command headquarters in Stuttgart, and is run by a US two-star military general, the official said. The center works closely with what the US military calls the international donor coordination center, or IDCC, which is run by a one-star general from the United Kingdom, the official added.

      “This was set up to support this security system’s efforts,” the official said.
      The control center, along with US personnel, includes staff from 15 other supporting nations in Stuttgart, the official said. The control center will also manage the network of more than 40 partner and allied nations that met in Germany earlier Tuesday and are providing assistance to Ukraine, the official said.

      This new group of allies will meet once a month, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced earlier Tuesday. The first meeting was hosted by Austin at Ramstein Air Base in Germany on Tuesday.

  4. global news – As “Rolling Thunder” motorcycle convoy nears Ottawa, police to receive “tools and resources”

    Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said Tuesday that the federal government is going to “provide the tools and the resources that are necessary for law enforcement to uphold the law” in anticipation of the “Rolling Thunder” motorcycle convoy entering the nation’s capital.

    “I think it’s really important that anybody who wants to engage in a kind of occupation that we saw in January, February has to know that, that’s just not on,” Mendicino said.

    The “Rolling Thunder Ottawa 2022” motorcycle convoy plans to arrive in the city on Friday, and will hold a rally on Saturday that organizers say will include a motorcycle procession around the National War Memorial.

    Mendicino said that residents of Ottawa are still recovering from the trucker convoy occupation that saw the closure of the city’s Rideau Mall, trucks loudly honking at all hours and reports of harassment.

    Pfizer and BioNTech Submit Application for U.S. Emergency Use Authorization for a COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose in Children 5 Through 11 Years of Age

    NEW YORK and MAINZ, GERMANY, APRIL 26, 2022 — Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX) today submitted an application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of a 10-µg booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children 5 through 11 years of age (also referred to as children ages 5 through <12).

    The submission included data from the Phase 2/3 clinical trial in children ages 5 through 11 years who received a booster dose approximately 6 months after the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine 10-µg two-dose primary series, which was authorized under EUA for this age group in October 2021. Data from this study demonstrated a strong immune response in this age group following a booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine with no new safety signals.

    The companies also plan to submit these data to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and other regulatory agencies around the world for authorization in the coming weeks.

    The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which is based on BioNTech’s proprietary mRNA technology, was developed by both BioNTech and Pfizer. BioNTech is the Marketing Authorization Holder in the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada and the holder of emergency use authorizations or equivalents in the United States (jointly with Pfizer) and other countries. Submissions to pursue regulatory approvals in those countries where emergency use authorizations or equivalent were initially granted are planned.
