Scott Ritter’s Switcheroo: “Why I Radically Changed My Overall Assessment”

On Sunday, the foreign policy blogs were abuzz with the news that Scott Ritter had done “an about-face in his assessment of the war”. It appears that the ex-Marine had examined recent developments in Ukraine and concluded that it’s going to be much harder for Russia to win than he had originally thought..

Naturally, the news of Ritter’s reversal sent shockwaves across the internet, especially among the people who follow events in Ukraine closely and who greatly admire his even-handed analysis. Some of these people clearly felt betrayed by Ritter’s comments and blasted him as a “concern troll” which refers to a person who feigns sympathy while actually feeling the opposite. This is a terrible way to treat a guy who’s devoted so much of his time to informing people about an issue of which they might know very little without his research. Besides, Ritter is no hypocrite. Quite the contrary.

…IMHO, Scott Ritter is gradually adjusting to the idea that the conflict in Ukraine is not a just regional skirmish between two quarrelsome neighbors, nor is it a proxy-war between NATO and Russia. No. Ukraine is the first phase of a broader plan for crushing Russia, collapsing its economy, removing its leaders, seizing its natural resources, splintering its territory, and projecting US power across Central Asia to the Pacific Rim. Ukraine is about hegemony, empire, and pure, unalloyed power. Most important, Ukraine is the first battle in a Third World War, a war that was concocted and launched by Washington to ensure another unchallenged century of American primacy.

Sunday Talks, Finland President Sauli Niinistö Indicates a Global Cleaving Behind Decision to Join NATO

…The important part to watch is if this cleaving continues, there are going to be two sets of nations with two structurally different economies.  An oil based energy group and a group chasing the Build Back Better, Green New Deal, human population control mechanisms under the ruse of climate change.

Behind the G7 and NATO, we know the multinational corporations assembled in the World Economic Forum are ultimately the driver of political policy. The central bankers, finance ministers and politicians all operate under the guidelines of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank (WB) and World Trade Organization (WTO).

Together the WEF, IMF, WB, WTO, EU central banks and U.S. federal reserve, collectively represent what we call the globalists.  And the globalists are pushing the climate change agenda hard {WEF LINK}.

It is important to remember the ultimate goal of the ‘climate change’ promotors (World Economic Forum) is not an energy system that changes the global climate. The goal of the ‘climate change’ group is to create a carbon trading system; a new financial mechanism (a global tax program) to control human activity on a world-wide basis.  This system also needs a digital identity in order to work {hint-hint}.

As a consequence, when we look at the fracturing of the global energy marketplace, it is worth viewing the divided group through the prism of the globalist carbon trading scheme.

The oil-based energy group is going to have a strong strategic advantage in production costs.  They will continue using oil, coal and gas (economic fuels), which are abundant, cheap and the infrastructure is already in place.

This entire essay (not long) is well-worth reading. I have excerpted a considerable sample because it says so much about what is going on in the world today and into the future. An election was stolen and ever since USA is going straight downhill no brakes. None of this will benefit ordinary citizens. The nation-state with a healthy and well-informed polity is an irreplaceable barrier against dictatorship, the faceless totalitarianism of one-world government. I think China sees this and is gearing up for war or at least preparing for war. What NATO is doing is pure KOBK strategy. It constitutes a profound threat to Russia, China, and more. A KOBK move demands a KOBK response. Just as USA is being destroyed, so is the world. This is not happening because our “leaders” are incompetent; they are puppets, all of them. The reptilians are in control. ABN

FLASHBACK: Resident Biden sometime in December 2021

Intelligence community, one million doctors, election officials, Resident Biden, his handlers, a feckless Congress that pursues only own wealth, all liars and thieves, they have taken us to our lowest point as a nation. Yes, a few are good but these organizations are all rotten and bringing about our ruination. The cause is 70 years of narcissists mentoring mediocre underlings who do not threaten them. The even deeper cause is an all but invisible enemy who has promoted our downfall through asymmetric warfare. ABN

Col Douglas MacGregor: “We’re in the final phase of this war”; also expresses concern that when US has to face blatant falsity of months of their own propaganda, they may lash out in fear and panic

This short segment is from a couple of days ago, but still worth watching. MacGregor knows full well that the Western elite is not going to take defeat honorably. My sense is we are already pivoting into their manufactured economic crash, which will be blamed on Putin and also used to conceal lies about Ukraine, Hunter, covid, covid maltreatment, corruption, election fraud, and our senile resident in chief.

Preprogramming the world to accept biometric slavery; a classic mind-control technique that tells you what is going to happen, thereby causing many to believe it is inevitable

WEF Speaker Yuval Noah Harari: “Covid is critical, because this is what convinces people to accept, to legitimize total biometric surveillance…. The next phase is the surveillance going under our skin…. We are really acquiring divine powers”

Covid itself was preprogrammed as were covid vaccines as the only way to treat covid. Mass covid fear and panic were preprogrammed in movies and talks by a famous billionaire and others. Nuclear war is being preprogrammed right now. Nukes will fly if the WEF bitches are genuinely threatened with full exposure and total defeat. They epitomize KOBK game theory. For them, this is a zero-sum game. It’s kill-or-be-killed. There is no other game. That is what we are up against. ABN

The importance of fuzzy lines in maintaining a sane world

Online speech restrictions make sense up to a point. There is a reasonable line in there somewhere. Twitter is going way to far in only one direction, so almost all of us see its restrictions are unreasonable and probably unsustainable. This situation illustrates 1) the importance of lines, and 2) that lines are necessarily fuzzy, and 3) that even fuzzy lines have to be firm in the right places.

Over the past six decades, USA has waffled too much on our fuzzy lines, both legal and cultural. Fuzzy lines are hard to draw and hard to keep firm. Trump’s border wall is an example of a successful firm fuzzy line as were his immigration policies. TBH, gay marriage probably went to far. It crossed a fuzzy line of accepting homosexuality probably too much. Once crossed, all manner of gender “rights” have made even human identities fuzzy. Today, “abortion rights” are even beginning to include the right to kill your “perinatal” infant.

In thinking about fuzzy lines it is crucial that we all recognize that all cultures are fundamentally held together by Lowest Common Denominator behavioral rules and as such are kind of stupid and very easy to attack. All cultures are held together with fuzzy lines. No culture is perfect. All cultures can be destabilized by constantly pushing against their fuzzy lines. Some pushing is good. Too much pushing is bad. Don’t make perfect be the enemy of good enough. Don’t allow woke to be the enemy of reason. Or anyone’s sexuality or identity the enemy of a reasonably well-functioning society. It’s not easy to do this right but it is not impossible either and it must be done or chaos ensues. ABN

AUSTRALIA: 10 yr old girl assigned “homework” to query her father about his erections and ejaculations

The point of this is to destroy Western civilization. This is one prong of an asymmetric war of societal disruption, psychological manipulation of children. It’s not fundamentally about sexuality. Until we as a people realize that this is a war, we will continue losing. There is no culture on earth that cannot be easily disrupted and torn to pieces in this way. All societies must have clear boundaries, nearly all of which will be somewhat fuzzy. Our enemies exploit the fuzzy boundaries in law and reason to push their agenda—total destruction of Western civilization. We will not win by appeasing this infamy. ABN

Andy Ngo asks Jordan Peterson how psychology can explain why Antifa is so evil and bad. JBP says it’s “revenge against God for the crime of Being”

Curious journalist Andy Ngo asks Professor Emeritus Jordan Peterson how psychology can explain why Antifa is so evil and bad. JBP says it's "revenge against God for the crime of Being." Then he starts crying.

I do not believe this. A more likely explanation is antifa is a parasitic cult or subculture and as such takes delight in destroying its host as it feeds on it (most of them are paid or receive other rewards, praise, social bonding, etc). Parasitism works best if the parasites hate the host and feel no compunction for harming it. Parasites feed on their host in many ways. Take a moment to consider how many parasitic subcultures we now have and how most of them openly state their hatred for some part or all of USA. Many jobs depend on hatred of the host, promotions depend on it. JP is an artist of ideas and in that sense he paints a good picture and I support his work, but he is more an artist than an intellectual especially since he has no sense of history and/or refuses to have one.

“Ukraine is the battlefield chosen by US/NATO for its long-planned war with Russia.This This was made clear by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference earlier today”

Ukraine is the battlefield chosen by US/NATO for its long-planned war with Russia.This This was made clear by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference earlier today. He stated: 1/

"Since 2014, Allies have trained Ukraine’s armed forces, and significantly strengthened their capabilities. They are putting that training into practice now, on the front lines, with great bravery. In the last months, Allies have stepped up military support. 2/

“Providing anti-tank and air defence systems, drones, fuel and ammunition. As well as financial aid.” Stoltenberg made no effort to conceal NATO’s massive buildup of Ukrainian military forces over the last eight years. 3/

Russians very reasonably see NATO as an existential threat and this is why

What Pozner is saying is NATO has been making very strong KOBK (Kill-or-be-Killed) moves against Russia. KOBK is a ground-floor “game theory” of world power struggles. KOBK is the bottom line for political and military strategists. Globalism only makes KOBK more intense. Globalism emphatically does not mean “global kumbaya.” The West is being neither rational nor fair and certainly not innocent when it pretends it has not provoked forced Russia to answer their NATO and Central Asian encroachments with a KOBK move of its own—invading Ukraine. Putin would have been happy with believable assurances that NATO will not occupy Ukraine. But now, who knows? My hope and best guess is he wants regime change in Ukraine and solid assurances NATO will never try this again. This is not a time to fight fire with fire or to moralize without a full deck of cards as most of the West is doing. Russia owns the morality on this one. The smart move would be to concede and let them have what they deserve. ABN

Manifesto: New axioms of linguistics, philosophy, and psychology are much needed

The sciences or fields of inquiry mentioned in the headline above need companions based on different premises. These companions might be called speechology, thinkology, and beology.

Speechology would be founded on the axioms that we speak and that the proximate impetus and deep impetus of almost all speech acts are profoundly important, complex, consequential, revealing, and even enlightening. In scientific terms, they are profoundly satisfying to observe and understand and much follows from observing and understanding them.

Something similar can be said about thinkology and beology or a fourth science of actology.

Moving these fields of inquiry away from the fields named in the headline above will give them a fresh start, allowing them to make new discoveries based on new observations, practices, insights, and conclusions.

For example, some of this work has already been done in speechology, the results of which include and inform the fields of thinkology and beology. In addition to the axioms that “we speak” and that “the impetus of speech acts is complex and revealing,” we also have the discovered and richly explored the axiom that “interpersonal speech acts often are seriously misunderstood and not corrected” thus leading to the axiom that touches upon thinkology and beology that “as a result, our thinking and acting are often profoundly in error leading to massive snowballing and suffering from then on.”

The above paragraph makes several nontrivial statements based on demonstrable facts derived from a copious study of speechology. This study has been done using FIML rules and procedures. The difficulty in sharing the knowledge gained through FIML practice is it is based on the interpersonal communications of two unique individuals. This does not make it less scientific. This makes it a precise tool, akin to a microscope or measuring device. Other individuals can use this same precise tool to see and measure their speechologies.

Virtually all people will initially understand a speechology inquiry such as FIML in terms of the linguistics, philosophy, and psychology they already know. This will hamper rapid understanding of what FIML is and what it does because real FIML data will all be fundamentally unique to the individuals doing it. Yes, many insights will be generalizable but the tendency to generalize will immediately lead away from the precision of the FIML tool, thus dulling its resolution and accuracy. This is a very important distinction. It is this distinction that gives FIML its power and that calls for a new name for this field of inquiry.

Chinese whistleblower claims first COVID outbreak was INTENTIONAL and happened in October 2019 at Military World Games in Wuhan – two months before China notified the world about virus

A whistleblower has sensationally claimed China deliberately spread Covid at a military tournament two months before the rest of the world knew about the deadly virus.

Ex-Chinese Communist Party insider Wei Jingsheng said The World Military Games in October 2019 could have acted as the virus’ first superspreader event.

The international tournament for military athletes was held in Wuhan – the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic – two months before China notified the World Health Organisation about its first cases.
