    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and for you.
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colours of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of the people going by

    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do,
    They’re really saying I love you.
    I hear babies crying, I watch them grow,
    They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know.

    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
    Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world.

  2. On how governmental financial repression is moving into a phase whereby credit, and industries and individuals applying for it, will be selected based on preferred political agendas of governments. This will make it very difficult for politically out-of-favour market participants to finance their enterprises, while making politically-desired endeavors, such as electric vehicle factories, eligible for receiving vast amounts of public-purse incentives. It will also involve capital controls imposed on money outflows. (The pundit says precious metals are far down the list of control priorities because relatively few people hold them, and so there are bigger fish to catch.)

  3. Germany Unlikely To ‘Survive’ Next 2 Winters Without Russian Gas – E.ON

    BERLIN – Germany is unlikely to “survive” the next two winters without imports of Russian gas, Leonhard Birnbaum, the head of major energy company E.ON, has told the FAZ newspaper.

    “Without Russian gas, we are unlikely to survive the next two winters, except perhaps at the expense of the damage to our industry and economy.

    But then we will have neither steel nor the chemical industry, the consequences would be dramatic. So I can only warn against a gas embargo,” Birnbaum said.

    europravda – Germany could cope with Russian oil embargo by end of year, says minister

    Diplomats say the EU is edging towards a ban on Russian oil imports by the end of 2022.

    A crisis meeting in Brussels is also seeking unity against Moscow’s demand for gas payments in roubles.

    • Olaf Scholz: EU Stops Russian Coal Imports In Summer

      And before the end of the year, the EU will refuse oil.

      Earlier it was predicted that the EU countries would offer to phase out Russian oil before the end of the year.

      German Chancellor Olaf Scholz confirmed in an interview with The Indian Express on May 2 that the EU will phase out Russian oil before the end of the year, and will also greatly reduce gas imports from Russia, according to the website 24tv.ua.

      The EU stops importing Russian coal this summer.

      He noted that many countries were joined to the sanctions against Russia because of the war in the Ukraine, even if these sanctions compulsorily entail economic expenditures for them.

      Now we are implementing a very ambitious policy to reduce our dependence on fossil fuel imports from Russia. “We will stop importing Russian coal this summer, we will also gradually abandon Russian oil until the end of the year and will significantly reduce imports of gas from Russia,” Scholz said.

      According to him, the war that Russia brought upon Ukraine had severe consequences for the global economy, affecting, for example, the supply of wheat and food security worldwide.

      “Germany, as G7 presidency, supports our partners in alleviating the effects of Russia‘s war on global food security,” the Chancellor added.

      He said that the Russian invasion of Ukraine shatters the homes, the livelihoods and the very lives of Ukrainians. Scholz also noted that he had previously personally called on Putin to end the war immediately and continued to do so.

      Those responsible must be held accountable

      “As a response to this massive and unacceptable breach of international law, the European Union has adopted, together with our transatlantic partners, unprecedented sanctions against Russia and against individuals contributing to this war in order to impose on them severe costs for this war,” said Scholz.

      The German Chancellor also noted that the attack on Ukraine by Russia is on the top of the agenda for all of Europe and beyond, as the war breaks with the core principles of the UN Charter, sovereignty and the inviolability of international borders.

      The brutality of the Russian aggression against civilians in Ukraine is shocking and appalling. “Massacres against the civilian population are war crimes and those responsible must be held accountable,” he added.

      Why Germany has changed the narrative

      Recall that Germany’s positive decision to impose the embargo on Russian oil could be connected with the country’s recent success in finding alternative energy suppliers.

      According to the German Ministry of Economy and Climate Protection, the country’s dependence on Russian oil has decreased from about 35% in 2021 to 12% as of April 1. From Russian gas – from 55% to about 35%.

      Germany also reduced its dependence on coal supplies from Russia from 50% to about 8% since the beginning of the year, in particular due to changes in existing contracts.

      MAY 1st 2022 – DUSSELDORF –

    • the guardian – Russia doubles fossil fuel revenues since invasion of Ukraine began

      Country receives about €62bn from exports of oil, gas and coal in two months, with Germany the biggest importer

      Russia has nearly doubled its revenues from selling fossil fuels to the EU during the two months of war in Ukraine, benefiting from soaring prices even as volumes have been reduced.

      […]Even though exports from Russia have been reduced by the war and sanctions, the country’s dominance as a source of gas has meant cutting off supplies has only increased prices, which were already high because of tight supply as global economies recovered from the Covid-19 pandemic.

      […]But the higher prices Russia can now command for its oil and gas mean its revenues, which flow almost directly to the Russian government through state-dominated companies, have risen even while sanctions and export restrictions bite.

      Russia has effectively caught the EU in a trap where further restrictions will raise prices further, cushioning its revenues despite the best efforts of EU governments.

      […]Lauri Myllyvirta, lead analyst for CREA, said the cash propped up Putin’s war effort, and the only way to disable his war machine was to move rapidly away from fossil fuels. “Fossil fuel exports are a key enabler of Putin’s regime, and many other rogue states,” he said. “Continued energy imports are the major gaps in the sanctions imposed on Russia. Everyone who buys these fossil fuels is complicit in the horrendous violations of international law carried out by the Russian military.”

      […]“The corporate enablers of this deadly trade have shown they will stop at nothing to continue profiting from Russia’s blood oil.”

      […]Germany was the biggest importer in the last two months, despite repeated avowals by the government that halting dependence on Russian oil was a priority.

      […]“Two months after Putin invaded Ukraine, Germany is still funding the Russian war chest to the tune of €4.5bn a month. Berlin is the largest buyer of Russian fossil fuels,” Bernice Lee, a research director at the Chatham House thinktank, told the Guardian. “The world is looking to Germany to demonstrate strength and determination towards Russia, but instead they’re bankrolling the war and blocking a European embargo on Russian oil.”

      the guardian – The west can cut its energy dependency on Russia and be greener

      The Ukraine war has focused minds on win-win policies from ending coal and oil subsidies to raising petrol taxes on petrol

      […]governments must continue to focus on reducing environmental damage – in particular, on cutting greenhouse-gas emissions. Both goals, geopolitical and environmental, are urgent and should be evaluated together.

      […] There are plenty of energy measures the west can adopt that would benefit the environment and further its geopolitical aims. The most obvious steps, especially for the European Union, are sanctions that reduce demand for imports of fossil fuels from Russia.

      […]Continental Europe has made itself dependent on Russian gas, and US shipments of liquefied natural gas can help substitute for it.

      […]Western governments should also tap existing stockpiles, as Joe Biden did recently by announcing an unprecedented release of 180m barrels of oil from the country’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

      […]In addition, governments should raise, not lower, taxes on retail petroleum products.

      Other countries also are trying to shield their citizens from energy-price increases.

      But these measures, while understandable politically, are terrible economics: They undermine drivers’ incentive to economise on their fuel consumption, thus benefiting Russia and hurting the environment.

      […]Other countries assess the pros and cons of nuclear power differently. Fewer deaths resulted from the Japanese nuclear accident than occur every day from mining or burning coal. The UK now plans to build eight new nuclear reactors this decade, partly to reduce its dependence on oil imports in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

      […]Many studies of the natural-resource curse have concluded that societies built on the wealth of commodities in general, and oil in particular, are prone to authoritarianism.

      In the long run, it might be better all around if the fossil-fuel sector were to shrink worldwide. As western governments seek to devise energy policies that are both environmentally and geopolitically robust, that thought should help to concentrate minds.

    • DEUTSCHE PRAVDA – Germany calls for ban on Russian oil import

      German foreign minister Annalena Baerbock says the country is now ready to support an embargo of Russian oil-imports in a new sanctions package, a measure it has thus-far resisted.

      EU members are keen to end fossil-fuel imports from Russia. More than two-months into the war, they’ve only been able to sanction coal.

      Germany is one of the countries most dependent on Russian oil and gas.

      The government has warned however that fuel embargoes are likely to push up consumer prices.

    • global news – Germany ready to support Russian oil ban, but wants to avoid “economic catastrophe”

      Germany and the European Union want to avoid an “economic catastrophe” by “thoughtlessly” imposing an embargo on Russian oil, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said on Monday in Berlin.

      He later told reporters in Brussels, Belgium that Germany would be able to weather an EU embargo on Russian oil imports by the end of this year even though a stoppage could result in shortages, ahead of a meeting with his EU counterparts in Brussels.

      “It would help if we (had) some weeks or months, more time to do all the preparations, meaning technical preparations. We have to find some ships that carry oil from west to east, we have to prepare the harbours, we have to prepare the pipelines,” Habeck said.

      The comment came as the European Commission is expected to propose the sixth package of EU sanctions this week against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, including a ban on buying Russian oil – a move that would cut off a large revenue stream to Moscow, but which has so far divided EU countries.

      EU countries have paid more than 46 billion euros to Russia for gas and oil since it invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, according to research organization the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air.

    • OLAF SCHOLZ – Sanctions will not be lifted until Russia signs peace deal with Ukraine –

      BERLIN, May 2 (Reuters) – The sanctions imposed on Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine will not be lifted until Moscow reaches a peace agreement with Ukraine, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, adding that it was for Ukraine to determine the peace terms.

      Scholz, in an interview broadcast Monday on ZDF public television, said Russian President Vladimir Putin had miscalculated if he had anticipated he might be able to gain territory from Ukraine, declare an end to hostilities, and see Western countries drop sanctions.

      “He didn’t think his entire Ukraine operation through,” Scholz said. “He didn’t think Ukraine would resist like that. He didn’t think we would support them to hold out for so long. … We won’t withdraw the sanctions unless he reaches an agreement with Ukraine, and he won’t get that with a dictated peace.”

      He also said Germany would not accept Russia’s annexation of Crimea. “That was a breach of international law … that remains true,” he said.

      Scholz added that he had no plans to visit Kiev after a planned trip by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was dropped due to Ukraine’s objections.

      Scholz rejected criticism that he was at first too hesitant to send Ukraine heavy weapons, followed by criticism from pacifists after Germany last week announced the delivery of “Gepard” anti-aircraft tanks to Ukraine.

      “There’s no point in doing something just because someone is shouting or not doing something because someone is shouting,” Scholz said, adding that protecting the country and keeping peace was his duty as chancellor.

      Scholz is under pressure both at home and abroad to supply Ukraine with heavy arms such as tanks and howitzers and support an immediate EU embargo on Russian energy imports to strip Putin of hard currency that helps him finance the war.

    • yahoo – AFP – Exhausted Ukrainian soldiers return from eastern front

      Packed with exhausted Ukrainian soldiers with clenched jaws, the truck drives away at full speed. The troops from the 81st brigade have just received an order to withdraw from the eastern front where Russian forces advance.

      The brigade walked 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) Saturday, camouflaged in the woods and under crossfire, until their point of retreat at Sviatoguirsk.

      For a month, the 81st — whose motto is “always first” — battled to push back the Russian advance in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region where Moscow’s troops move forward slowly, taking villages one by one.

      “Everyone understands that we must guard the line here, we cannot let the enemy move closer, we try to hold it with all our force,” says lieutenant Yevgen Samoylov, anxious that the unit could be hit by Russian fire at any point.

      “As you can hear, the enemy is very, very near,” he says, pointing to the sky. The line of Russian tanks is on the other side of a hill, around seven kilometres (4.3 miles) away.

      At 21 years old, Samoylov, an officer from the Odessa military academy, finds himself managing 130 conscripts, often twice his age.

      “It’s my first war. I was supposed to graduate in four months, but they sent me here,” says the baby-faced officer with a short black beard.

      Samoylov, who goes by the nom de guerre “Samson”, never leaves his red notebook alone. He takes notes of every movement, but also each request and remark by the soldiers whom he always addresses with a soft voice.

      – Deadly silence –

      The unit swung into action on February 23, a day before Russia launched the invasion.

      At the start of the war, they spent a month defending Izium, which fell on April 1, before joining the fighting around the village of Oleksandrivka.

      “Some really difficult battles,” says the quiet Samoylov.

      In this brigade, like the others, they don’t say how many people have been killed.

      When the subject comes up, Samoylov’s gaze becomes misty. The pain is raw.

      A deadly silence takes over the military truck during the drive to the abandoned building where the soldiers will stay during their week of rest.

      When the convoy passes a truck loaded with long-range missiles dashing to the front, the soldiers automatically make a “V” sign for victory with their fingers before fixing their gaze once more on their feet or the horizon in silence.

      On arrival at the base, the soldiers unload their weapons, remove their kit and immediately go into one of the dilapidated rooms without electricity where they undergo a medical examination after returning from the front.

      For the survivors, “there are small injuries on the forehead, those who were buried under the rubble during a bombing have fractures and (injuries) linked to shrapnel,” says Vadym Kyrylov, the brigade’s doctor.

      “But we mainly see somatic problems, like hypertension or chronic illnesses that have worsened,” the 25-year-old adds.

      – ‘Trench foot’ –

      The men also greatly suffer from “trench foot” syndrome caused by prolonged exposure to moisture, unsanitary conditions or the cold.

      “For a month they are not able to dry their shoes… so there are many feet-related injuries, mainly fungi and infections,” the doctor says.

      After the medical visit, they all have the same reflex: to isolate and use their phone to call a female partner, a child or a parent.

      Soldiers cannot use their phones on the front, and any application that requires geolocation is banned.

      Four soldiers reassemble the rusty metal bed frames and sweep the floor coated with dust to make a semblance of a room.

      “It’s the moment for the guys to relax, to take care of their physical and psychological injuries, to regain their strength before returning to battle,” Samoylov says.

      “They’ll sleep warm, eat normal food and try to more or less get back on their feet.”

    EU Forces Palestinian Authority to Change School Curriculum

    BRUSSELS (MEMO) – The European Union will send financial support to the Palestinian Authority on condition that it will change the curriculum and textbooks in use in its schools across the occupied West Bank, Israel Hayom has reported.

    The move follows pressure from Hungary to make aid conditional on such change. The amount of aid involved is put at €214 million.

    The PA faces an ongoing financial crisis, so the curriculum change is seen as one way to boost the authority’s income. However, Israel Hayom quoted one PA official as saying, “We will not agree to conditional support and assistance.”

    Hungary’s EU Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi visited Ramallah last month and claimed that some of textbooks contain anti-Zionist content, and discussed another demand by several EU countries related to the introduction of reforms in Palestinian institutions in exchange for financial aid.

    Senior PA leaders have sent clear messages to Europe in recent days expressing their discontent with the EU’s stalling over the transfer of financial support.

    The European Parliament Budget Review Committee adopted Hungary’s position a year ago, claiming that the Palestinian curriculum “contains incitement against Israel and anti-Semitic content.”

  8. Judicial Watch: Pfizer/BioNTech Study Found Lipid Nanoparticles Materials Outside Injection Site in Test Animals

    Judicial Watch announced today that it received 466 pages of records from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding biodistribution studies and related data for the COVID-19 vaccines that show a key component of the vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), were found outside the injection site, mainly the liver, adrenal glands, spleen and ovaries of test animals, eight to 48 hours after injection.

    Pfizer/BioNTech’s mRNA-based COVID vaccine relies on LNPs as a delivery system. Pfizer said in a January 10, 2022 press release that Acuitas Therapeutics LNP technology is used in COMIRNATY, the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

    Judicial Watch also received 663 pages of records from HHS regarding biodistribution studies and related data for COVID-19 vaccines, which show that Johnson & Johnson relied on studies showing that vaccine DNA particles and injected virus particles were still present in test animals months after injection.

    The records also show that Johnson & Johnson, as part of its submission to the FDA for approval of its COVID vaccine, did not include studies of the spike protein encoded in the J&J vaccine.

    Biodistribution is a method of tracking where compounds of interest travel in an experimental animal or human subject.

    Judicial Watch obtained the records in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:21-cv-02418)) filed after the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease failed to respond to a June 8, 2021, FOIA request for:

    [A]ccess to biodistribution studies and related data for the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines used to treat and/or prevent SARS-CoV-2 and/or COVID-19.

    The Pfizer records include a report, which was approved in February 2021, on the animal trials on the distribution of the Pfizer COVID vaccine in rat subjects, in a section titled “Safety Pharmacology,” the report notes, “No safety pharmacology studies were conducted with BNT162b2 [the BioNTech vaccine] as they are not considered necessary for the development of vaccines according to the WHO guideline (WHO, 2005).” Similarly, under “Pharmacodynamic Drug Interactions,” is “Nonclinical studies evaluating pharmacodynamic drug interactions with BNT162b2 were not conducted as they are generally not considered necessary to support development and licensure of vaccine products for infectious diseases (WHO, 2005).”

    This Pfizer report notes that when lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) “with a comparable composition,” to that used in the Pfizer COVID vaccine were injected into rats, “Total recovery (% of injected dose) of LNP outside the injection site was greatest in the liver and was much less in the spleen, adrenal glands, and ovaries.” … “in summary” … “the LNP distributes to the liver.” In the detailed analysis, the report states, “Over 48 hours, the LNP distributed mainly to liver, adrenal glands, spleen and ovaries, with maximum concentrations observed at 8-48 hours post-dose. Total recovery (% of injected dose) of LNP, for combined male and female animals, outside of the injection site was greatest in the liver (up to 18%) …”

    This same Pfizer/BioNTech study notes “No genotoxicity studies are planned for BNT162b2 [the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID vaccine] as the components of the vaccine constructs are lipids and RNA and are not expected to have genotoxic potential (WHO, 2005).” Similarly, “Carcinogenicity studies with BNT162b2 have not been conducted as the components of the vaccine construct are lipids and RNA and are not expected to have carcinogenic or tumorigenic potential.”

    The conclusion of the study begins: “The nonclinical program demonstrates that BNT162b2 is immunogenic in mice, rats, and nonhuman primates, and the toxicity studies support the licensure of this vaccine.” The report notes that “boost immunizations” were also being tested on the animals in the trial. Also, “Vaccine-related microscopic findings at the end of dosing for BNT162b2 were evident in injection sites and surrounding tissues, in the draining iliac lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, and liver.”

    Also included in the Pfizer records is a report, approved in January 2021, titled “Pharmacokinetics Tabulated Summary.” A table in the report shows the biodistribution of lipid nanoparticles containing mRNA used in the vaccine using rats as the clinical trial subjects reports LNPs accumulating after 48 hours, especially in the lymph nodes, ovaries, small intestine and spleen.

    A summary of a study, approved in November 2020, of LNP mRNA distribution in rats, sponsored by Acuitas Therapeutics, notes that the concentrations of the LNP mRNA saw “levels peaking in the plasma by 1-4 hours post-dose and distribution mainly into liver, adrenal glands, spleen and ovaries over 48 hours. Total recovery of radioactivity outside of the injection site was greatest in the liver, with much lower total recovery in spleen, and very little recovery in adrenals glands and ovaries. The mean plasma, blood and tissue concentrations and tissue distribution patterns were broadly similar between the sexes and … did not associate with red blood cells.”

    A September 2020 “Confidential” appendix to the clinical trial studies submitted for the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID vaccine (BNT162b2), titled “Justification for the absence of studies in CTD Module 4 (part of 2.4)” notes under “Safety Pharmacology” that “No safety pharmacology studies were conducted as they are not considered necessary according to the WHO guideline (WHO, 2005).”

    And under “Pharmacodynamic Drug Interactions,” is written: “Nonclinical studies evaluating pharmacodynamic drug interactions were not conducted as they are not generally considered necessary to support development and licensure of vaccine products for infectious diseases (WHO, 2005).”

    Under the heading “Genotoxicity,” is: “No genotoxicity studies are planned for BNT162b2 as the components of the vaccine constructs are lipids and RNA that are not expected to have genotoxic potential (WHO, 2005).”

    Regarding “Carcinogenicity (including supportive toxicokinetics evaluations)” is written:

    Carcinogenicity studies with BNT162b2 have not been conducted as the components of the vaccine constructs are lipids and RNA that are not expected to have carcinogenic or tumorigenic potential. Carcinogenicity testing is generally not considered necessary to support the development and licensure of vaccine products for infectious diseases (WHO, 2005).

    In a “Confidential” Pfizer study, approved in April 2020, looking at four COVID vaccine variants, the company tested a vaccine with an RNA strand “that self-amplifies upon entering the cell.” It “encodes the Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE) virus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RDRP or replicase).”

    In the same Pfizer study, the authors note that, “Although liver function tests will be carefully monitored during the clinical development of these vaccines, BioNTech’s prior clinical experience indicates that the distribution to the liver does not pose a safety concern.”

    Also, the Pfizer study authors note, “Based on previous nonclinical and clinical experience with the three RNA platforms, a beneficial safety profile is anticipated, and may include transient local reactions (such as swelling/edema or redness) and body temperature increases.”

    The Johnson & Johnson records include a 2007 study of the biodistribution of an intramuscular-administered adenovector-based viral vaccine using New Zealand white rabbits, which showed that the vaccine accumulated in “the spleen, iliac lymph node, and the muscle at the site of injection.”

    A biodistribution table included as an appendix to the 2007 rabbit study showed that the vaccine DNA particles were still present in the iliac lymph nodes 91 days after injection.

    A chart of pharmacokinetics data from a November 2020 report of a study on “VAC31518 JNJ-78436735,” the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, on rabbits shows collection of the injected virus particles in the spleen and iliac lymph nodes up to three months later, as well as particles found in the skin and muscle at the injection site.

    In a November 4, 2020, report submitted to the FDA regarding the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine, the authors discuss the 2007 New Zealand rabbit study in which adenovirus-vectored vaccine is trialed, but note that “No pharmacokinetic or biodistribution studies have been conducted with AD26.COV2.S specifically.”

    The report notes that metabolism, excretion, and pharmacokinetic interactions with other drugs were not studied in this trial because they are “Not applicable to vaccines.” It is also noted that “biodistribution studies have not been conducted with Ad26.COV2.S.”

    A table in the report shows that the vaccine virus continued to appear in the rabbits’ iliac lymph nodes 180 days after injection.

    A June 2020 “Pharmacokinetics Written Summary” for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines notes that:

    Ad26COVS1 (also known as VAC31518 or JNJ-78436735) is a monovalent, recombinant replication-incompetent adenovirus type 26 (Ad26) vectored vaccine encoding a severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Spike protein…. No specific pharmacokinetic studies have been performed with Ad26COVS1. However, to assess distribution, persistence, and clearance of the Ad26 vector (platform), biodistribution studies were conducted in rabbits using two other Ad26-based vaccines encoding [redacted] and [redacted] antigens…. [T]he available biodistribution results are considered sufficient to inform on the biodistribution profile of Ad26COVS1, for which the same Ad26 vector backbone is used.

    “These documents show why many Americans have concerns about whether the novel COVID vaccines that were developed at such an accelerated pace were tested properly and thoroughly,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

  9. This is the video everyone’s talking about today, showing how a Shanghai nursing home resident is taken away to the morgue in a body bag. At around 38 sec in the video, the staff member backs away and says: “He’s alive. He’s alive, I say it. Don’t cover him anymore.”
