The question is who is at the top of the pile?

1/ Regarding Klaus Schwab and the WEF: Schwab—along with his associates at the WEF—is not so much an evil genius manipulating the levers of power from a smoke-filled resort room in Davos.

2/ He is more like a cartoonish mascot, a garish distillation and personification of a widely shared ideology and an ambitious agenda embraced by many corporate, tech, finance, and political power brokers with globalist pretentions.

3/ That these elite power brokers’ institutions and interests often interlock, that they meet regularly in Davos, a resort in the Swiss Aps, to plan and coordinate their efforts, should come as no surprise.

4/ And they are far from alone: many who don’t get invited to the Davos party have their own role to play, and dutifully take their cues from their cultural overlords.

5/5 For their part, universities and their administrators, along with scores of media talking heads, readily and willingly serve among the ranks of what Lenin (rather indelicately) called “useful idiots” for advancing this agenda.

The globalist agenda reeks of anti-Western policy, including escalating war in Europe, backfiring Russia sanctions, vaccine mandates, the high probability that covid will become more lethal, ruination of US and European economies, and more. So who is at the top of the pile? I agree it’s not Klaus. It can’t be senile Biden. I doubt the old-money European elite is behind all of this. They surely are party to it, possibly by now “willing” onlookers who have no other choice. How is China involved? The Shanghai lockdowns are sheer political theater having nothing to do with covid. Why does the West ignore this? Why is the West escalating war in Europe? Why did they provoke it in the first place? When the dust settles after many crashes—economic, military, covid mortality, systemic due to the former three—who will be on top? Who will gather what’s left and “lead” this despoiled world? ABN

The core message is somewhat simple. The vaccines ruin the immune system for covid. They not only ruin it, they cause the vaccinated immune system to help the virus. This is why Omicron is so infectious. So far, Omicron is highly infectious but not very deadly. This is not good news because evolution does not stop. The virus is continuing to evolve. Therefore, it is inevitable that the virus will become more deadly because that is what viruses do; they evolve to exploit new avenues of replication. Since vaccinees’ immune systems have been made incapable of killing the virus, many of them will become seriously ill and die. How many, no one knows because there has never been a mass vaccination experiment like the one we are running now. The only hope for lessening the deadly impact of new viral variants is stop mass vaccinations immediately while also immediately start dispensing antiviral therapeutics such as ivermectin, HCQ, maybe Paxlovid, etc. ABN

“Why do breakthrough infections with Omicron have a deleterious impact on both, individual and public health? Why will re-vaccination of C-19 vaccinees with an updated S(Omicron)-based C-19 vaccine during a pandemic make breakthrough infections even more likely and further increase population-level immune pressure on viral virulence?”: Geert Vanden Bossche

…In conclusion, poor neutralizing capacity of anti-S Abs in vaccinees not only enhances their susceptibility to breakthrough infection with Omicron but is also suspicious of delaying viral clearance, thereby promoting prolonged viral shedding and potentially predisposing vaccinees to long-haul Covid while causing them to exert sustained immune pressure on viral virulence [1]. The likelihood of breakthrough infections in C-19 vaccinees will even further increase upon their re-vaccination with an updated S(Omicron)-based C-19 vaccine during the pandemic. This is because re-vaccination will boost the infection-enhancing anti-S Abs and thereby further increase the susceptibility of vaccinees to breakthrough infection. This will result in an even higher capacity of the ACE2 receptor to outcompete broadly neutralizing anti-S(Omicron) Abs for binding to the S-RBM.  


Gonzalo Lira speculative analysis of Ukraine outcome

Consider this map of a possible future Ukraine, and let's take on the point of view of Putin, the Kremlin and Russia.

What would be Russia’s preferred outcome? What would they like to see three years from now?

Obviously, Russia wants to annex east and southern Ukraine, as per the map—and they will.

When they announced that residents of Kherson would be obliged to use rubles for their commerce, that’s as clear a signal as any as to their true long-term intentions: Full annexation.

The Russians will want a compliant, pacified rump-Ukraine.

Is Ukraine seeking to widen the war by invading Transnistria?

The Ukraine’s de facto propaganda minister, Oleksiy Arestovich, has threatened an invasion of Transnistria, the Russian-protected, Slavic-majority, longtime (since 1991) “breakaway” part of Moldova. 

In line with that, some goons—possibly the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s psychological operations branch—have been spreading “We will liberate Transnitria” digital propaganda posters in Ukrainian and Romanian.

Over this past week, “unknown” attackers launched three bazooka rounds at Transnistria’s State Security Ministry in Tiraspol; two Transnistrian towers for the rebroadcast of Russian radio were blown up by saboteurs; Ukrainian drones violated Transnistrian airspace; and, shots were fired across the border from the Ukraine in the vicinity of a major Transnistrian munitions depot (more on this location, below.)

Russia has between 1000 and 1500 soldiers in Transnistria.  Together with local Transnistrian forces (5000 regulars and many times that in reserves, in addition to police who likely have access to some heavier weapons), they should be able to hold off a total conquest by third-rate Ukrainian forces in the region. 


How Elon Musk is exposing an impossible business model: “The backbone of Twitter is the United States government”

…The only way Twitter, with 217 million users, could exist as a viable platform is if they had access to tech systems of incredible scale and performance, and those systems were essentially free or very cheap.  The only entity that could possibly provide that level of capacity and scale is the United States Government – combined with a bottomless bank account.  A public-private partnership.

If my hunch is correct, Elon Musk is poised to expose the well-kept secret that most social media platforms are operating on U.S. government tech infrastructure and indirect subsidy.  Let that sink in.

The U.S. technology system, the assembled massive system of connected databases and server networks, is the operating infrastructure that offsets the cost of Twitter to run their own servers and database.  The backbone of Twitter is the United States government.



In the underground of Mariupol’s Azovstal there would be a secret NATO facility, managed together with Metabiota. A chemical and biological weapons laboratory whose existence must be hidden from the world. Here’s what the Russian special forces are looking for in the Mariupol dungeons. In the fighting in the last few hours, some Ukrainian command centers, groups and mercenary headquarters have been hit, also destroying many of the military equipment that has just arrived from the West. The port of Mariupol is under the control of the Russian army, but the fighting continues. Mariupol has the Azovstal industrial zone, a company owned by oligarch Rinat Akhmetov.


“Very interesting—but maybe very wrong: The London Times alleges 150 FSB officers have been fired—and some arrested—over failures in Ukraine”


Very interesting—but maybe very wrong: The London Times alleges 150 FSB officers have been fired—and some arrested—over failures in Ukraine.

The problem is the source of the story: @bellingcat, a known CIA front and purveyor of disinformation.


Let’s keep an open mind.

The Times: “All of those ousted were employees of the Fifth Service, a division set up in 1998 when Putin was director of the FSB to carry out operations in the countries of the former Soviet Union with the aim of keeping them within Russia’s orbit.”


More: “The service’s former chief, Sergei Beseda, 68, has been sent to Lefortovo prison in Moscow.”

Beseda is the same age as Putin—they were probably friends or at least friendly for +25 years. So to send such a colleague to prison is an incredibly powerful message.


I would speculate that of these 150 FSB who were fired, most would have have been incompetent—but of the arrested, some might have been ~compromised by Ukrainian intelligence~. And now with the invasion, the FSB might have found evidence of this treason.

Just a thought.
