1. Two curious items about the value of the US dollar and how it may change in the next few weeks.
1a NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 22 – President William Ruto expects dollar demand in the country to ease as the government plans to import fuel in Kenya shillings.
Ruto’s remark comes after the cost of buying a dollar increased to as high as Sh145.5 per dollar as of yesterday.
Greenback demand in the country has been rising over the last few years due to high demand from importers.
However, dollar requests are expected to drop after the Kenyan government and its Saudi counterpart signed an import deal for fuel importation on credit.
Early this month, Energy Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir said that the oil import deal would see the state-run National Oil Corporation (NOCK) import 30 percent of the country’s monthly fuel requirement.
The above will be on credit for six months to a year, helping the government ease pressure on the dollar.
“And So I just want to assure those in Kenya who were facing challenges of access to dollars that we have taken steps to ensure that dollar availability in the next couple of weeks is going to be very different because our fuel companies will now be paying for fuels in Kenya shilling,” the President said during the listing of the Laptrust Imara I-REIT at the Nairobi Securities Exchange today.
But then on the other hand…
1b: President of Kenya Urges Citizens To Get Rid of U.S. Dollars – soon
The President of Kenya today announced to all citizens they should get rid of any U.S. Dollars they may be holding because they will become worth less within weeks.
William Kipchirchir Samoei Arap Ruto, Ph.D, CGH; is a Kenyan politician who is serving as the fifth and current president of Kenya since 13 September 2022.
Prior to becoming president, he served as the first deputy president of Kenya from 2013 to 2022.
So. No idea what this means. Except the Kenyan president, the fifth one within a year, expects the USD to hold no value at least within Kenya. I’m thinkin the rest of us should probably not panic sell.
2. A few times we posted an excellent quote on this site from Theodore Dalyrimple on the nature of a Communist slave state. It is for this reason that we refer to Joe Biden as “Senator Biden” or “Don Biden”. Because to propagate the lie that he is the legitimate president is to become a liar, and therefore a slave. The newest lie we are to simply accept at the expense of evidence, is that the Wuhan Flu came from a curious animal called a Raccoon Dog. Ok then.
3. So this happened at an Ottawa Railway station…
Our first thought was of Herbert Marcuse’s Repressive Tolerance. The left does this trick with the trans-scam and anything else they can think of which lets them really annoy the general population, and then accuse them of a hate crime. But then this video was brought to my attention. Which doesn’t contradict the notion of repressive tolerance at all, but does add focus.
4. Dr. Trozzi video on falling sperm counts and toxic ejaculate
Below, the FULL video and interview on the same subject, with more here from Dr. Trozzi
At one point, this site did a post suggesting that the main focus on nearly all lines of effort against Western Civ, from the glorification of homosexuality to the shots, has been to end the birth rate, or at least dramatically lower it. This goes a long way as a data point to affirming that hypothesis. It is actually a theme we return to often, and still looking for the main post on this subject.
5. Long interview with Ed Dowd on why more sudden deaths in 2021
Thank you all for checking out these perspectives on these events. One thing you can know, is that the MSM has lied to us about everything important for a long time now. And once you know someone is lying, you know a lot. Not that one reflexively believes the opposite. That would be a form of Argumentum ad Absurdum. But you know what you are told is a lie, which means the thing you are asked to believe is likely not true. “Diversity is our strength”. “Islam is the religion of peace”. “These ‘vaccines’ are safe and effective”. There of course are many more examples of the kind of media lies which have harmed and killed so many.
I want to address one statement of Julian Assange’s though. “Every war in the last 50 years has been started by media lies”. -J. Assange.
This site has carefully navigated away from discussing the war between Ukraine and Russia. In fact the only sensible commentary I have read on it at all is from our own reader, Yucki, who posts links and thoughts to the daily reader’s links now and again on the subject. For those interested in an educated and compassionate evaluation of the events and nature of this conflict, search for those posts. But the reason I bring it up is because of the media lie that Russia has no Casus Belli for its invasion of Ukraine. It does. And not saying so is a war crime of its own. This does not mean the invasion of Ukraine is justified, or that Russia is correct, or any other subsequent judgement whatsoever. This is instead a condemnation of Western media for failing to inform people who’s lives could be dramatically affected, or even ended, because they chose to omit the fact that the Ukrainian PM as far back as 2014 had threatened and abused the people of the Donbas region because they were ethnically or otherwise sympathetic to Russia, and appear to have wanted to join Russia. Knowing this, it becomes more difficult to understand why a negotiated peace is being avoided. If people understood the history of that region, even just as far back as 2014, the pressure to negotiate a peace deal would be much higher than the raw jingoism which is all we get from our media. Again, this is not any attempt to call who is right and who is wrong in the conflict itself. Only that Western media in its information war against the public, has betrayed us all again by making possibilities for peace much more difficult by denying us crucial information, in exactly the same way they made damn sure we could not know about Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin, and if we did know about it, to make damn sure we thought it was poison.
If the video linked in the paragraph above is inaccurate or out of context, please leave a comment explaining how we have this wrong. There are also videos of military operations against the civilians in the Donbas before the Russian invasion, but we have not linked those as its nearly impossible to filter propaganda from fact at this point. We are not concerned with ‘being right’ here so there is no shame in error. We are concerned with truth, and the least possible suffering for all concerned while maximizing personal liberties.
1- On the economy:
We both know that a major crash will bust every bubble that the
MarxistKeynesian policies have inflated. This major crash of the world’s economies probably the goal of our Far Left leaders. They want total chaos so they can appear as the string man that will protect the population.
I don’t really have a use for Islam, but I’m not going to annoy actual Muslims at an individual level.
That Ottawa incident is disgusting. Ahmed should be left alone!
It’s a tough call. Islam uses public prayer as a form of manifest destiny. It’s the Islamic version of the communist, ‘liberating tolerance’. Makes it more complex.
I’m with you, they are using this to harass and eventually dominate our nations.
I wonder what he would have done if a Christian began to cite the Lord’s Prayer. Am betting that tolerance would have gone out the window quite quickly.
Their ideology dictates their prayer should not be ostentatious and if it is, it will not be accepted by Allah.
Worse, if a woman or a dog walks by, their prayer is outright canceled. That’s why they normally go outside in corners to pray.
So, why would he be praying there, in the middle of the aisle?
IT WAS A SETUP, that much is obvious.
Ahmed knew it was filmed, he made sure it was relayed on social media, with the goal of attracting more Muslims to pray in public areas, such as the train station.
Yes, it was disgusting and Ahmed now has a following and will gain many more points in Islam’s Paradise for propagating Islam.
I disagree with your stance on Ukraine.Of course Russia would pretend that it was only invading to help Russian speaking citizens in Ukraine.It’s the same argument russia makes about it’s regular invasions of neighbouring Georgia.Russia claims that Georgia is abusing Russian speaking people within its territory.
It’s Russian propaganda.nothing more ,nothing less.
Putin is an ex KGB officer.Believe me he knows all about propaganda.He’s very charming and appealing.He was well trained.
But that doesn’t mean that he is truthful.
I agree with you. All your points. Mine was having to do with the video of Poroshenko I linked, saying how how was and would abuse the people of the Donbas. To not explain this to the public is to lie to them. And we have had enough of that over every issue facing Western nations for more than 20 years now.
CrossTalk: Containment 2.0
How many Russian-speaking Ukrainians do you know, Shelagh?
All the Ukrainians who I’ve met are Russian-speaking — is that a Jewish thing?
“canary in the coal mine” kind of thing
Western Ukraine has been traditionally distinct. Polish- Lithuanian Empire. Same as the western part of Belarus. Later it became Bandera land.
Jews fared better in the Russian-speaking areas. Minsk and Odessa were Jewish cities. Kharkov was the third largest city of European Russia. Marc Chagall, Golda Meir, Natan Sharansky.
People I know were liberated from concentration camps in Transnistria and Poland by the Soviet Army. (Only later to be sent to gulag in Siberia.)
[W]e may call ourselves Jews, ex-Soviet Jews, Russian Jews, Ukrainian Jews… but never “Russian.”
Thank-you for your generous words, Eeyore.
It’s a terrible time.
The priest at the local Russian Orthodox Church is filling in what we don’t hear from family and friends there. Military-grade spyware on every device. Information control makes it difficult and dangerous to communicate. The Church itself is under the worst threat since Stalin.
You told us the part the Ukes don’t want us to know.
Yucki, have you seen this? Maybe this was up on this site and I missed it.
Note what Putin says about the attacks on the Russian Orthodox Church. I don’t know if the translation to English is accurate or not, hopefully someone here can let us know.
If the translation is accurate, this war will be taken up a notch with what Zelensky is doing to the church there.
“Well, he’s not wrong.”
