  3. ET,

    Walking down the street today I found the colour blue
    I had a choice so picked it out of all the other hues
    It was sitting between Christmas cheer and memories gone by
    I plucked it from the sidewalk like the heaviest of dimes.

    But now I wish I’d picked the green much jollier, by far
    It lights my mood more easily and takes my mind off time
    Walking on my shoulders felt the weight of this choice done
    The consequence of choices made and sticking to my guns.

    At Noel Street I turned the corner lost in my own thoughts
    And damned if I collided with another walker lost
    “Sorry, friend, it’s all my fault,” I blurted right away
    “Oh no, oh no, it’s me,” he said, in a humble gracious way.

    “A few blocks back I stumbled on some colours on the ground
    Regrettably I picked the blue and now I’m weighted down.
    I’m thinking of my family, who are so far away
    And friends who will not speak to me for fear of what I’ll say.”

    “Well what a odd coincidence–the same is my sad lot!”
    (The dawning of some yellow, now, flickered in my head
    The sunrise of ideas shone some light of hope to mind)
    “Then it seems to me, my newfound friend, we have the right to choose
    Any colour that we wish instead of playing with the blues
    For life is for the living, and I still think this is true
    So let’s have a drink and sing a song and screw the colour blue.

    How can I miss you if you won’t go away?

    You’re the reason our kids are ugly.

  5. DEC 21 2022 – WaPo -No conclusive evidence Russia is behind Nord Stream attack

    World leaders</b< were quick to blame Moscow for explosions along the undersea natural gas pipelines. But some Western officials now doubt the Kremlin was responsible.

    After explosions in late September severely damaged undersea pipelines built to carry natural gas from Russia to Europe, world leaders quickly blamed Moscow for a brazen and dangerous act of sabotage. With winter approaching, it appeared the Kremlin intended to strangle the flow of energy to millions across the continent, an act of “blackmail,” some leaders said, designed to threaten countries into withdrawing their financial and military support for Ukraine.

    But now, after months of investigation, numerous officials privately say that Russia may not be to blame after all for the attack on the Nord Stream pipelines.

    “There is no evidence at this point that Russia was behind the sabotage,” said one European official, echoing the assessment of 23 diplomatic and intelligence officials in nine countries interviewed in recent weeks.

    Some went so far as to say they didn’t think Russia was responsible. Others who still consider Russia a prime suspect said positively attributing the attack — to any country — may be impossible.

    In the months after the explosions, which resulted in what was probably one of the largest-ever single releases of methane gas, investigators have combed through debris and analyzed explosives residue recovered from the bed of the Baltic Sea. Seismologists have pinpointed the timing of three explosions on Sept. 26, which caused four leaks on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines.

    No one doubts that the damage was deliberate. An official with the German government, which is conducting its own investigation, said explosives appear to have been placed on the outside of the structures.

    But even those with inside knowledge of the forensic details don’t conclusively tie Russia to the attack, officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to share information about the progress of the investigation, some of which is based on classified intelligence.

    “Forensics on an investigation like this are going to be exceedingly difficult,” said a senior U.S. State Department official.

    The United States routinely intercepts the communications of Russian officials and military forces, a clandestine intelligence effort that helped accurately forecast Moscow’s February invasion of Ukraine. But so far, analysts have not heard or read statements from the Russian side taking credit or suggesting that they’re trying to cover up their involvement, officials said.

    Attributing the attack has been challenging from the start. The first explosion occurred in the middle of the night to the southeast of the Danish island of Bornholm. Scientists detected two additional explosions more than 12 hours later to the northeast of the island.

    Given the relatively shallow depth of the damaged pipelines — approximately 80 yards at the site of one explosion — a number of different actors could theoretically have pulled off the attack, possibly with the use of submersible drones or with the aid of surface ships, officials said. The list of suspects isn’t limited only to countries that possess manned submarines or deep-sea demolitions expertise.

    The leaks occurred in the exclusive economic zones of Sweden and Denmark. European nations have been attempting to map which ships were in the region in the days before the explosions, in the hope of winnowing the field of suspects.

    “We know that this amount of explosives has to be a state-level actor,” Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto said in an interview this month. “It’s not just a single fisherman who decides to put the bomb there. It’s very professional.”

    Regardless of the perpetrator, Haavisto said that for Finland, which isn’t a Nord Stream client, “The lesson learned is that it shows how vulnerable our energy network, our undersea cables, internet … are for all kinds of terrorists.”

    Russia remains a key suspect, however, partly because of its recent history of bombing civilian infrastructure in Ukraine and propensity for unconventional warfare. It’s not such a leap to think that the Kremlin would attack Nord Stream, perhaps to undermine NATO resolve and peel off allies that depend on Russian energy sources, officials said.

    But a handful of officials expressed regret that so many world leaders pointed the finger at Moscow without considering other countries, as well as extremist groups, that might have the capability and the motive to conduct the attack.

    “The governments that waited to comment before drawing conclusions played this right,” said one European official.

    Condemnation of Moscow was swift and widespread. On Sept. 30, four days after the explosions, U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm told the BBC it “seems” Russia was to blame. “It is highly unlikely that these incidents are coincidence,” she said.

    German Economy Minister Robert Habeck also implied that Russia, which has consistently denied responsibility, was responsible for the explosions. “Russia saying ‘It wasn’t us’ is like saying ‘I’m not the thief,’” Habeck told reporters in early October.

    An adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called the ruptures “a terrorist attack planned by Russia and an act of aggression toward [the European Union].”

    “No one on the European side of the ocean is thinking this is anything other than Russian sabotage,” a senior European environmental official told The Washington Post in September.

    But as the investigation drags on, skeptics point out that Moscow had little to gain from damaging pipelines that fed Western Europe natural gas from Russia and generated billions of dollars in annual revenue. The Nord Stream projects had stirred controversy and debate for years because they yoked Germany and other European countries to Russian energy sources.

    “The rationale that it was Russia [that attacked the pipelines] never made sense to me,” said one Western European official.

    Nearly a month before the rupture, the Russian energy giant Gazprom stopped flows on Nord Stream 1, hours after the Group of Seven industrialized nations announced a forthcoming price cap on Russian oil, a move intended to put a dent in the Kremlin’s treasury. During Putin’s long stretch in office, the Kremlin has used energy as an instrument of political and economic leverage, employing the threat of cutoffs to bully countries into going along with its goals, officials said. It didn’t make sense that Russia would abandon that leverage.

    Germany had halted final authorization of Nord Stream 2 just days before Russian forces invaded Ukraine. But the pipeline was intact and had already been pumped full with 300 million cubic meters of natural gas to ready it for operations.

    European and U.S. officials who continue to believe that Russia is the most likely culprit say it had at least one plausible motive: Attacking Nord Stream 1 and 2, which weren’t generating any revenue to fill Russian coffers, demonstrated that pipelines, cables and other undersea infrastructure were vulnerable and that the countries that supported Ukraine risked paying a terrible price.

    Haavisto noted that Finland has taken steps to strengthen infrastructure security since the explosions. Germany and Norway have asked NATO to coordinate efforts to protect critical infrastructure such as communication lines in the North Sea and gas infrastructure.

    “But it’s at the same time true that we cannot control all the pipelines, all the cables, all the time, 24/7,” Haavisto said. “You have to be prepared. If something happens you have to think, where are the alternatives?”

    The war prompted European countries to build up stockpiles of alternative energy, making them less dependent on Russian sources. But the Nord Stream attack has left many governments uneasy about the lengths to which Russia or other actors might go.

    Swedish Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom said his government was waiting for the country’s independent prosecutor’s office to complete its investigation into the explosions before reaching a conclusion. Sweden, along with Denmark, increased its naval patrols right after the attack.

    “We have spoken about [the explosions] as part of the view that the security situation in the northern part of Europe has deteriorated following Russia’s aggression on Ukraine, with all the implications that it has,” Billstrom said in an interview this month.

    The prospect that the explosions may never be definitively attributed is unsettling for nations like Norway, which has 9,000 kilometers (5,500 miles) of undersea gas pipelines to Europe.

    A Norwegian official said Norway is attempting to strengthen security around its own pipelines and broader critical infrastructure. It is investing in surveillance; working with Britain, France and Germany to intensify naval patrols; and trying to find ways to keep oil and gas flowing in the event of another attack.

    Norway is also investigating the appearance of unidentified aerial drones around its oil and gas facilities around the time of the Nord Stream attacks.

    “It’s not a good thing,” the official said, of the possibility that the Nord Stream explosions may remain unsolved. “Whoever did it may get away with it.”

  6. DEC 20 2022 – UNIVERSITY of LUXEMBURG – Characteristics associated with COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy

    Understanding what lies behind actual COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy is fundamental to help policy makers increase vaccination rates and reach herd immunity.

    We use June 2021 data the COME-HERE survey to explore the predictors of actual vaccine hesitancy in France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Spain and Sweden.

    We find that Post-Secondary education, home-ownership, having an underlying health condition, and one standard-deviation higher age or income are all associated with lower vaccine hesitancy of 2–4.5% points.

    Conservative-leaning political attitudes and a one standard-deviation lower degree of confidence in the government increase this probability by 3 and 6% points respectively.

    • DEC 20 2022 – University of Luxemburg – Can Social Media be used to complement findings on vaccine hesitancy from social surveys?

      With 745,661 vaccine-related tweets originating from three Western European countries, we compare vaccine hesitancy levels measured with our framework against that collected from multiple consecutive waves of surveys.

      We successfully validate that Twitter, one popular social media platform, can be used as a data source to calculate consistent public acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines with surveys at both country and region levels.

      In addition, this consistency persists over time although it varies among socio-demographic sub-populations.

      Our findings establish the power of social media in complementing social surveys to capture the continuously changing vaccine hesitancy in a global health crisis similar to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  7. National Post. A little know book

    Canada funded this assisted suicide “activity book” for children. The Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) Activity Book was first published in July by the group Canadian Virtual Hospice.

    The book is not intended for children who are themselves seeking assisted death, and it is not subject to mass- distribution through schools or public libraries. Minors are ineligible for medically assisted death in Canada, although there has been a push by the Quebec College of Physicians to extend the practice to severely disabled newborns.

    Rather the Activity book is intended for children who may soon be ((unbelievable)) attending a medically assisted death in a person. “Created for young people who may have someone in their life who may have MAID”, the group declared in a statement. MAID is defined in the booklet as the use of medicines to stop a “person’s body from working”. When their body stops working, the person dies, it reads.

    Children are guided through “three medicines” that constitute the lethal injection process, and are urged not to attempt to change the mind of a family member who has opted for assisted death.

    “As much as other people may want to change their mind, the person who is choosing MAID probably wishes just as strongly that they could change their illness or condition and how it is affecting their life”, it reads.

    Financed by HEALTH CANADA, the 26 page booklet was written by Ceilidh Eaton
    Russell, a MacMaster University lecturer and consultant on grief in children. Russell is also behind the handbook Living Dying; A Guide for Adults Supporting Grieving Children and Teenagers.

    In 2020, the Parliamentary Budget office prepared a report for the House of Commons noting that MAID would yield a NET SAVINGS for the healthcare system by slashing the need for palliative care and other “end of life” COSTS.

    Tens of thousands of illegals are lining up on the border to enter the US illegally. The Biden administration will then give them money, a nice hotel room somewhere in Middle America, and fly them or bus them into the interior.

    But in order to accomplish their final goal of taking down the United States in one final act of treason, they must control the narrative.

    ABC’s Martha Raddatz Under Fire Over Abbott Interview

    There is an interesting controversy this week after ABC’s Martha Raddatz took Texas GOP Governor Greg Abbott to task for public comments about the open Southern border as fueling the crisis. Raddatz is being criticized for her claim that President Joe Biden has never encouraged migrants to come over the border — a statement that many objected to as demonstrably false. However, I am more interested in a different aspect of her remarks: the objection to Abbott’s language. It is the type of objection that one finds from a system of state media where the narrative is supposed to be replicated and uniform.

    Abbott has criticized the Biden administration’s “open-border policies” and Raddatz immediately objected to that language in her interview:

    You talk about the border wall, you talk about open borders, I don’t think I’ve ever heard President Biden say, ‘We have an open border, come on over.” But people I have heard say it are you, are former President Trump, Ron DeSantis. That message reverberates in Mexico and beyond. So, they do get the message that it is an open border.”

    Critics immediately pointed out past Biden comments criticized as seemingly encouraging such border crossers: “They deserve to be heard. That’s who we are. We’re a nation that says, ‘If you want to flee, and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.’”

    They also point out that Raddatz herself was told by one border crosser that he “basically” made the trip because Biden was elected.

    However, it was the objection to the use of divergent language that was equally striking. ABC and other mainstream media sites have been accused of echoing the narrative of the Biden Administration and largely ignoring (until recently) the crisis at the southern border. Those who raise the issue have been denounced as exaggerating or inventing a crisis.

    Raddatz’s interview is reminiscent of the interview by Leslie Stahl on CBS with former President Donald Trump where she shutdown Trump referring to the spying on this campaign by declaring that there is no evidence of such spying. There was already ample evidence of such spying, but Stahl simply told viewers that it was untrue.

    The Raddatz interview raises again the danger of a de facto state media where media echoes the position of the government by choice rather than coercion. Her objection was that Abbott and others keep referring to a crisis when the Administration and mainstream media do not use such terms. As a journalist, she is objecting to a public official in a border state calling out a crisis as thousands pour over his border on a daily basis.

    Raddatz’s objection was notably virtually identical to the talking point put out by the White House. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has declared “It would be wrong to think the border is open. It is not open.” She added “anyone who suggests otherwise is simply doing the work of these smugglers who, again, are spreading misinformation which is very dangerous.”

    It is unclear what Raddatz is suggesting. Was the governor of Texas supposed to stop responding to the outcry of border cities to the massive influx? Was he supposed to insist that the border is not open as videos show hundreds just walking over the border?

    Raddatz is an accomplished journalist and I have great respect for her career. We can all craft questions or comments poorly. However, the concern is that this interview occurred in the context of ABC and other networks steadfastly ignoring the growing crisis at the border.

  16. GBN – Mark Steyn speaks out on suffering two heart attacks as GB News host reveals he was ’15 minutes from death’

    PUBLISHED Monday 19 December 2022 – 17:24

    GB News’ Mark Steyn has spoken out on his recovery from two heart attacks.

    The GB News host suffered the first one “without recognising” the symptoms, before hosting his show on The People’s Channel.

    Speaking on his current absence from GB News, Steyn said: “I’m too medicated to manage artful evasions.

    “I had two heart attacks. Because I didn’t recognise the first one, as such, the second one was rather more severe.”

    The experienced broadcaster spoke about the shocking ordeal, saying he “doesn’t look right”, looking back at images of himself presenting the Mark Steyn show during the first heart attack.

    Speaking on SteynOnline, he said: “The good news is that the first one occurred when I was in London. If you get a chance to see that day’s Mark Steyn Show, with hindsight, I don’t look quite right in close-ups.

    “By not recognising it as a heart attack, I deftly avoided being one of those stories we feature on the show every couple of nights about people in the UK calling emergency and being left in the street for 15 hours before an ambulance shows up.

    “I had a second heart attack in France. With Audrey helping me in the ambulance, she told me I was 15 minutes from death.”

    The presenter also revealed he would remain in France over Christmas and New Year as he is unable to leave medical care and return to New Hampshire.

    With Steyn recovering from his heart attacks, fellow GB News host Mark Dolan stepped into the role between December 13 until December 15.

    Dolan, who hosts Mark Dolan Tonight on GB News, tweeted: “My friend and colleague Mark Steyn has suffered two heart attacks. He is a colossal talent and a brilliant guy – get well soon legend.”

    Fellow GB News host Dan Wootton has also voiced his support for Steyn, tweeting: “Sending love and prayers to Mark Steyn today. We need you back on GB News soon.”
