The data recorded by MarineTraffic reveals that 69 tankers sailing from Russia are due to dock in European ports.
Another two tankers coming from Russian fossil fuel terminals, the CB Caribic and the Baltic Mariner, are due to arrive in the UK in coming weeks.

“The mosque of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and his wife Roxolana (Hurrem Sultan) in Mariupol was shelled by Russian invaders,” it said in a tweet.
“More than 80 adults and children are hiding there from the shelling, including citizens of Turkey.”
Bye-bye to the Big Mac: Russia’s war heralds a dark, isolated economic era

But the most emblematic move of all came from McDonald’s, which has shut all 850 of its outlets in Russia. The availability of Big Macs in the Soviet Union was seen in 1990 as evidence that the west’s old cold war foe was turning its back on communism, but the past fortnight has rekindled memories of the bad old days. There were queues outside McDonald’s when it first opened in Moscow. Last week, Russians queued for one last burger before the pull-out began.

What happens when a nuclear bomb explodes?
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has heightened the risk of a nuclear conflict. What would a nuclear bomb blast look like for those on the ground, and what would happen in the aftermath? © Provided by Live Science Here, the mushroom cloud created when the nuclear bomb exploded over Nagasaki, Japan, on Aug. 8, 1945.
The answer depends, of course, on how many weapons are dropped. Russia and the United States have 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons, according to the Federation of American Scientists. Russia has 1,588 weapons deployed on intercontinental missiles, which have a range of at least 3,417 miles (5,500 kilometers) and heavy bomber bases, which host aircraft capable of carrying and dropping a nuclear payload, and the U.S. has 1,644 weapons poised in the same way. (The two countries also have another nearly 5,000 active bombs between them that are functional and simply awaiting launchers.) A full-scale nuclear war could easily represent an extinction event for humanity — not just because of the initial deaths but also because of the global cooling, so-called nuclear winter, that would follow.
Putin says Russia will emerge stronger, sanctions will rebound on West
(Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that sanctions imposed against Russia would rebound against the West, including in the form of higher food and energy prices, and Moscow would solve its problems and emerge stronger.© Reuters/SPUTNIK Russian President Vladimir Putin attends a meeting with government members via a video link in Moscow
Putin said there had been no alternative to what Russia calls its special military operation in Ukraine and that Russia was not a country which could accept compromising its sovereignty for some sort of short-term economic gain.
“These sanctions would have been imposed in any case,” Putin told a meeting of the Russian government. “There are some questions, problems and difficulties but in the past we have overcome them and we will overcome them now.
Comment Russia is more civilised and heroic than the opportunistic west. Without Russia , Nazis would have won. I would happily sacrifice my transsexual status for a stable Russian society.. I was told to complete my sex change I had to take anti psychotics. This was because of my high level police connections and concerns about their corruption, Who would want a sex change on the basis of zombie drug ? I used to work for the corrupt Brutish Police State. R J Cook.

Speaking to a committee of MPs on Wednesday, Vadym Prystaiko appeared to admit people had suffered bigotry while trying to get on trains leaving Ukrainian cities.
But he blamed the ‘conflict’ on ‘young foreigners [being] prioritised over women and children of Ukrainian citizenship who are trying to get on the same trains’.
Anger and exhaustion as Ukrainians turned away by UK in Calais

“They treated us worse than the water in the toilet,” the Polish builder said finally, standing by the entrance to the ferry port hours later with his Ukrainian wife, Alona, sister-in-law Juliia, a speech therapist, mother-in-law Olga and their dog Garik, considering what to do next.
Comment I will say it again. Britain is racist against white refugees. They do not want well educated white people from Ukraine. It is farcical that the U.K Border Forces are slowly processing them and are worried about Russian terrorists sneaking through. Meanwhile Border Force continue to look out for BAME migrants in the Channel, to bring them to the U.K without checking anything. Far too many of these alleged refugees have turned out to be terrorists.
Matters are very dangerous when BAME are free condemn any of us whites if they feel offended by our presence , what we say, how we say it and cultural manifestations. Our elite are mealy mouthed about concern and care for white Ukrainians, condemning them for calling that country fascist, but when it comes to the crunch, they do not want too many of their refugees because they may very well compete with and upset BAME economic migrants.
One of the main reasons people voted for Brexit was to stop the Middle East and African immigrants. The elite supported Brexit because they preferred BAME to well educated white East Europeans. The last thing this elite wants is modernising the Third World , deposing black despots and ending global élite rape of resources and its people, along with child labour. Foreign Aid goes to the elite and is not the answer, however good it makes the masses feel.
Mealy mothed white liberals work hand in glove with black tyrants as they have done since the days of slavery. All the drivel about religious tolerance and not questioning overpopulation is keeping the masses down in those parts of the world , including Latin America. The masses are led to believe that all is God’s will.
Poverty, disease and ignorance , along with slave wages working for tyrants and global corporations, keeps BAME and Latin American masses in their place. The last thing the environmentalist want to talk about is population growth and massive movements. Ukraine is ultimately about the global elite wanting to expand this chaos into Russia. The masses are clueless as to how they are being manipulated. The well paid media smoothies don’t care, assuming they even understand, because they got their ideas from comfortable families and what the British call ‘Unis’. R J Cook
Feds probe BLM activist for allegedly is pilfering funds from charity
A prominent Boston-based Black Lives Matter activist with ties to current and former members of Congress faces a federal investigation after allegedly pilfering funds from her multimillion-dollar charity.
Monica Cannon-Grant, the founder and CEO of the charity group Violence in Boston, rose to prominence in the Boston BLM community after George Floyd’s murder in May 2020. Something of a powerbroker in Boston Democratic politics, she reportedly established a close working relationship with Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu when the two served on the Boston City Council. Former Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III hailed Cannon-Grant’s endorsement of his failed 2020 Senate campaign.
Ukraine urged to take ‘humane’ approach as men try to flee war
The UN has urged Ukraine to take a “compassionate and humane” approach to the enforcement of martial law after reports of Ukrainian men defying orders to stay and attempting to cross into neighbouring countries to claim asylum.
Men of conscription age, aged 18 to 60, were banned from leaving Ukraine after the Russian invasion on 24 February but there have been multiple reports of men with Ukrainian citizenship trying to cross into Hungary, Poland and Romania. It is unclear how many have been allowed to pass.
The Ukrainian government is not forcing men to fight, only remain in the country, but there are fears of enforced conscription if the violence continues.
Comment So much for gender equality , all the women can run abroad but the men must stay to fight or stand there to be shot, bombed or shelled. So much for democracy and NATO membership if you have to die for it. All very well comedian Yelensky playing the hero, but he has full U.S protection for his key NATO propaganda role.

How many tanks does Russia have? How the size of Putin’s armoured forces compares with Ukraine and Nato
However, his forces have only been able to seize control of one large city so far – Kherson in the south. Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Mariupol have remained in Ukrainian hands despite heavy Russian bombardment.
A 40-mile convoy of military vehicles is yet to enter Kyiv, and Ukraine’s military has claimed more than 11,000 Russian troops have been killed since the start of the invasion.
A whistleblower from Russia’s security service has said the invasion will be a “total failure” and could result in “real international conflict” in the coming months.
Western intelligence passed to Ukrainians with key data missing to prevent Russian claims of Nato interference
Western intelligence being provided to Ukraine about the state and whereabouts of Russia’s invasion forces is being shorn of source and targeting information to avoid inflaming tensions with the Kremlin, i understands.
Washington, London and its allies have been sharing vital intelligence information, including satellite images and communications intercepts, with Kyiv since prior to the invasion.
Trump jumps on Biden banning Russian oil to promote himself: ‘Do you miss me yet?’
The average price of gas in the United States is $4.173 per gallon, according to AAA. A report from GasBuddy found that they hit an all-time-record high at $4.63 per gallon, with little signs of letting up.
Comment As with the past two world wars and all the mini wars in-between, the masses are being taken for fools by the global elite. Yesterdays chimp like claPping for Yelensky’s retro Churchillian speech to Britain’s Parliament was nauseating. Trump could have been a breath of fresh air, thinking and acting outside of the swamp. The Democrats and the British Media, notably the BBC, would not leave him alone. He saw a problem with so many things, including NASTY NUKUS NATO.
Venezuela frees two Americans after talks with U.S
By Vivian Sequera, Matt Spetalnick and Diego Oré
CARACAS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Venezuela released two jailed U.S. citizens on Tuesday in an apparent goodwill gesture toward the Biden administration following a visit to Caracas by a high-level U.S. delegation.
One of the freed prisoners was Gustavo Cardenas, among six Citgo oil executives arrested in 2017 and convicted on charges the U.S. government says were fabricated. The other was a Cuban American, identified as Jorge Alberto Fernandez, detained on unrelated charges.
Comment Clearly the United States are buttering up desperate Venezuela to make up for the Russian oil shortfall. Wars are organised by the rich and powerful. Russia is being taught its place as the Anglo U.S alliance fights and twists to reassert itself. Their NATO provoked Russia in what they expect to be the end for Vladimor Putin. Meanwhile we of the masses are fed more propaganda about sacrifices for freedom, as we were with the war on terror and Covid restrictions. Johnson breaking his own rules is symbolic of this duplicity , deception and hypocrisy. R J Cook
Putin bets big on terror
Attention has turned in recent days to the massive refugee flow out of Ukraine into neighboring countries. Most notable is the influx into Poland where upwards of a million innocents have fled to avoid the shell fire, rockets, and cluster bombs of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Approaching 2 million Ukrainians, including more than half a million children, have now left their homeland. The flood is likely to increase because the spate has long since ceased to be primarily those who have friends and relatives conveniently located across friendly frontiers and now includes masses of ordinary Ukrainians without any other hope. They are giving up everything to save their families. Who knows how many will decide before the war ends that this is their only option?
Comment Still no mention of why Russia was pressed into war. Inevitably the CIA scriptwriters and mainstream media cronies had worked out the screenplay for war coverage with women and children on the run. The Anglo U.S started this new nonsense about terror as they did with the twin towers. Poor countries with their crops, oil and minerals are pawns in the game. Russia and China are in danger of pushing more balanced economic development along with stable population, the only real long term solution to environmental protection. With the Anglo U.S , their stooge Yelensky, and rambling vain condescending EU bureaucracy behind them, they speak for the ‘have yachts, not the have nots.’ R J Cook

Xi Jinping breaks his silence: China calls for ‘maximum restraint’ in Russia-Ukraine war
The Chinese leader described the situation in Ukraine as worrying and called for “maximum restraint”.
Mr Xi said the priority should be preventing the situation from spinning out of control.
The Chinese President made the comments on Tuesday at a virtual meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
Mr Xi said the three countries should jointly support peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV reported.
Comment As I and other learned voices keep saying, Russia is not the demon here. U.S and U.K led NATO have provoked this tragedy. The U.K have legitimated Zelensky’s corrupt murderous regime in Donbas, sanctifying him. Britain has shown its true colours in resisting Ukrainian refugees. Meanwhile it accepts thousands of BAME Islamic economic migrants, presenting themselves as asylum seekers from Africa and Middle East every year. They never ask for identity documents and rescue them in the Channel where theor crowded rubber dinghies are sinking.
Whatever the morality of this Ukrainian War , which our moronic parliament will turn into World War 3 if Wallis & Gromet ( Truss ) if other countries keep listening to them, the Ukrainian refugees re refugees. BAME are running from countries they have helped destroy and want a ‘better life’ -don’t we all ?
The problem for our elite and fake liberals is that Ukrainians are better educated on average than the BAME. That is why they are preferred. Black BAME women make better house maids etc. As for West Ukraine, they cannot wait to get their nose in the EU trough. Zelensky, ever the prima donna wants to strut the world stage with NATO regardless of upsetting an entirely reasonable modernising Russia. So we listen to his self centred melodrama about Putin being out to ‘destroy humanity.’ A NATO summit in 2008 , told Georgia and Ukraine ‘ Wink wink, no problem, you are as good as a NATO member, just have to sort the details You can help us with Russian regime change. We need a good man close to the inside.’. These are the details. R J Cook
The Strategy That Can Defeat Putin
Eliot A. Cohen
First came the shock: the sight of missiles and artillery shells slamming into apartment buildings, helicopters pirouetting in flames, refugees streaming across the border, an embattled and unshaven president pleading with anguished political leaders abroad for help, burly uniformed men posing by burned-out tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, Russian police spot-checking cellphones on Moscow streets for dissident conversations. Distress and anger and resolution were natural reactions. But the time has come to think strategically, asking what the West—and specifically the United States—should do in this crisis and beyond.

Biden is wrong to trust Russia and Iran
by Washington Examiner | March 08, 2022 12:01 AM
The entire world is watching Russia target civilians in Ukraine and then lie about it, yet President Joe Biden now wants the public to trust Russia to help implement a nuclear deal with Iran, which, according to Washington Examiner reporting, is actively trying to assassinate Americans on U.S. soil.
An anonymous Department of Justice official revealed to the Washington Examiner that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been plotting to assassinate former national security adviser John Bolton here in the United States. This would not be the first time the Guard attempted a high-profile assassination on U.S. soil. In 2011, security officials disrupted a Guard plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador as he dined at Cafe Milano in Washington, D.C.
Comment We are effectively in a world war, with Britain’s appalling warmongering politicians on all sides, wanting to masters of ceremony. If this newspaper believes this report , then they want the violence to spread. Islamists have a bad attitude to Iran, Muslims have a lunatic attitude to Jews , ironically from which their religion is derived. The whole religion world mentality is screwball politics and mass hypnosis. Bush & Blair victimising Iraq has made the whole situation impossible and intractable. But Israel is a powerful influence on the U.S and must be comforted by the likes of this newspaper.
This mentality will spread violence worldwide. A U.K Government that doesn’t obey its own laws and is party to U.S War Crimes should not be respected. Russia has a lot worth fighting for and has struggled to recover from the Yeltsin era – much loved by the ANGLO U.S NUKUS club. NATO is the aggressor. Yelensky is a big danger, to say the least. Russia has its faults , but U.K is supreme in police state methods, which is why they are barely noticed and only by a few of us. Russia needs respect. R J Cook
‘I feel only hate’: Ukrainians take up arms with no room for mercy as Russian strikes continue
Alex Crawford, special correspondent
Former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko couldn’t be more bullish about his country’s chances of beating back and defeating a far bigger, superior military force.
Comment It is interesting that we heard every woman would stand with her man to fight the Russians to the last, then 1.7 million flee the country. NATO have overwhelmed Ukraine with weapons, munitions and logistical support, not to mention the CIA , satellite data, propaganda posed as information and specialist units on the ground. Clearly NATO set Russia up for this. They have spent years undercover stirring up dissent. The hypocrisy is amazing, mass stupidity in the U.K is laughable. U.S mass indifference is not surprising. Zelensky is their placeman as was his predecessor. Comedians these days are on the nasty side and very clever people, as I learned working with them. Their humour is vicious and one sided. R J Cook

PROXY WAR TO END PROXY WARS
German chancellor Scholz pushes back against Russian energy import ban, as oil and gas climb – as it happened
Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news.
With European stock markets closed, here’s a recap of the main events today.
Germany’s chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has pushed back against calls to ban Russian oil and gas imports, as part of western sanctions against Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.
US and Five Eyes partners want Russia suspended from Interpol
Attorney General Merrick Garland has joined with the United States’s “Five Eyes” partners to call upon the International Criminal Police Organization to end Russia’s access to Interpol databases as the Kremlin continues its Ukraine invasion.
Interpol, with its 194 global members, controls a vast quantity of law enforcement data and secure police communications that can be shared with its members, and the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — the five English-speaking member nations, or “eyes,” that comprise the intelligence-sharing alliance — are in agreement that the Russian government’s ability to use those tools must end.
Russia says it will stop war now if Ukraine meets these four requirements
The offer has been described as “unconditional surrender” and “blackmail”.
Russia has laid out its demands for an end to the war, saying there are four conditions that must be met for it to retreat.
The country’s forces continued to pummel some Ukrainian cities with rockets even after the new announcement of corridors and fierce fighting continued in some areas, indicating there would be no wider cessation of hostilities.
– Cease military action
– Change constitution to enshrine neutrality
Recognize Crimea as Russian territory
– And recognize the Russian-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states.
Recognize Crimea as Russian territory
– And recognize the Russian-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states.
– And recognize the Russian-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states.
Comment Zelensky won’t agree to these original requests. It is not what his boss Biden & Co and the U.K want. Hunter Biden made a fortune from the corrupt Ukrainian regime. It is ironic that the U.S want Venezuela to help make up for the Russian oil they have now banned. Food supply won’t be an issue for the U.S, but will be massive for U.K and Europe.
The consequences for European masses and beyond will be dire, but they will be filled up with all the ‘noble cause’ crap. It is a pity that the highly paid elite, including patronising media folk , public servants and bankers ( who should lose their fat bonuses ), don’t have a forced pay cut.
But they would have to agree to that. U.K MP’s have already voted themselves an extra £2000 for all their extra ‘work’ at the downtrodden taxpayer’s expense. As always in war, those at the front shout back, those at the back shout forward. Needless to say their are lots of outraged morons decrying Russia’s reasonable request. NATO causes wars.
When certain truths about Iraq came out, Anglo U.S elite jailed Assange and Manning for leaking war crimes. Manning will never be really free, and Assange will never see the light of day. What kind of idiot believes in western style democracies ? We have plutocracy where money , in the hands of men like Soros, rules. This whole situation seems more likely to go nuclear every minute.

SAS and Navy Seals lead bombshell plot to rescue Zelensky from Putin ‘We owe him’
Marco Giannangeli – Sunday Express Diplomatic Editor
The operation follows at least three assassination attempts on the wartime hero.
Last night more than 70 SAS hardmen and 150 Seals were training for several scenarios.
The mission at a remote base on Nato territory – which the Sunday Express has agreed not to disclose – will also involve a small contingent of Ukrainian Special Forces, originally tasked to receive training in sabotage and disruption techniques before being deployed back into Ukraine.
Comment How much more evidence do people need that this is a NATO set up ? NATO troops are announced to be entering the Ukraine theatre of war. Britain’s Johnson is announced as about to do much more on the world stage and China is exhorted to stop Putin. Are the Chinese leaders so stupid as not to realise they are next on the regime change hit list ? The thin end of the wedge for them is the international ( sic ) condemnation of how they ‘treat’ the Uhgur Muslims.
The above articles is admission that Zelensky is owed something, so he has clearly been working for NATO. As the former U.K Ambassador to Paris, once my near neighbour, Sir Edward Tomkins told me in interview ( 1988 ), “My escape from an Italian POW camp was easy. We had been reading the papers and knew Italy had given up in World War Two.” I replied Surely they didn’t write that in newspapers. He said “Not exactly, but as a young diplomat before being called up, I was trained to read between the lines.”

Comment How long before Vladimir Putin realises that he is at war with the world , with nothing to lose if he chooses the nuclear option ? Britain is moralising and leading the charge over the Oligarchs they admired and welcomed for asset stripping Soviet infrastructure. Those greed merchants were a perfect fit for the British elite who did the same to Britain. Now we are supposed to see them as symbolic of the Russia that simply did not want war mongering NATO ( NUKUS ) on its borders and an end to Zelensky’s genocide of ethnic Russians in the Donbas. Our media is turning this into a super version of the great Dunkirk defeat. To any one with a brain, this should be seen as the ultimate in a long line of NATO ( NUKUS ) proxy wars, a proxy war to end proxy wars. R J Cook

BBC, CNN and CBS on defensive as Putin signs ‘fake news’ law
Global media outlets have joined the BBC to suspend news reporting in Russia over fears of staff safety.
The decision comes after Moscow passed a law that appeared to “criminalise” journalism and threatened jail terms of up to 15 years for spreading “fake news”.
It an attempt to hit back in the information war, the Russian government also imposed fines for anyone calling for sanctions against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine.
Comment The Western Elite decides what information is true and what is disinformation. Correct opinions are regarded as information. Questions and criticisms are disinformation. There is no such thing as independent journalism, but RT came very close to the ideal which is why government and opposition parties in the U.K and other countries before, closed it down.
This is regime change war on Russia. The evidence is there in spite of U.S , EU and UK best efforts to cover up and deny. The war for regime change has an elite logic. Engineered and starting in the Middle East, the fallout has seen unwelcome Russian involvement in Iran and Syria.
Russian and Chinese efforts to develop Africa , Pakistan and India are unwelcome by U.S UK and EU. Britain’s elite like to be seen as anti racist, welcoming the mass immigration they don’t have to pay fr, while villifying the lpwer wrking classes as far right because they do have to pay through taxes and rising living costs in ever more crowded environments with a multi culture they must give way to.
Ths is because Third World and Middle Eastern dictatorships are convenient and can be relied on to retard worthwhile education, promote self defeating escapist religious bigortry, tribal infighting with all the poverty, disease and overpopulation so needed for cheap labour in the west – where feminism and rising costs , destroying stable family life ,has massively reduced the white masses’ birth rate. Ukraine is party to the western elite now, and Russia is lined as next,
Niggling China over its Muslims and Taiwan will be the next step unless Nuclear War ends the game. China is trapped because its culture and system relies of massive cheap labour manufacturing and exporting consumer junk, including computers and parts to the west. It also finances western debt measured in trillions in the U.S case. Sanctions would destroy it. If I were Putin, I would expel the BBC , CBS , NBC and CNN immediately. French and German media should also follow. it is difficult to see a peaceful solution to this because it is elite driven.
It is all about power and greed. It males a joke of protecting the climate because the global economy is geared up to destroy the planet. it sis not only the oligarchs who have yachts. Thee western backed Yeltsin Russia coup created those oligarchs. The western elite has no serious grounds to condemn them , it simply wants them on side to condemn and undermine Putin.

Chickens come home to roost! Putin’s war sounds final death knell for Russian EU chokehold
With Russia supplying around 40 percent of Europe’s natural gas and also being one of the world’s biggest oil exporters, the escalating tensions have laid bare the impact such dependency can have. Oil prices, already constrained by under production by the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), have soared past $110 a barrel while natural gas prices have hit new records. Nigel Pocklington, CEO of Good Energy, described the situation as “overdependence on Russian hydrocarbons coming home to roost.” The chief of one of the UK’s leading renewable energy suppliers believes the situation has put new impetus on renewables as countries re-evaluate their energy supply chains.
Zelensky begs US for fighter jets and a Russian oil embargo
Ukraine needs an influx of fighter jets from NATO allies and an embargo on Russian oil, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told U.S. lawmakers on the heels of NATO’s refusal to impose a no-fly zone in Ukrainian skies.
Ukrainian fighters need the jets “because their [anti-aircraft defenses] got destroyed on day one,” a source familiar with the conversation told the Washington Examiner, adding that Zelensky also communicated during a virtual meeting with U.S. lawmakers Saturday morning that they “need an oil embargo on Russia.”
Comment This man Zelensky is a dangerous idiot who was wound up and put in place by the Anglo American led NATO alliance. What he is actually begging for is World War Three. Biden and Johnson are stupid and vain enough to let him have it without accepting that Russia will have to shoot down the planes. Starved of oil it will turn off the gas and ultimately go for the nuclear option. If we lived in a democracy we would be able to to stop them.
A vain idiot like Zelensky should never have been put in place. The 2014 coup should never have happened and Minsk should have been honoured. I have watched the highly paid idiots of the BBC’s foreign affairs desk talking arrogant patronising garbage, stirring up the British masses who will expect to be pandered to. There will be more images of crying women and children fleeing Ukraine, more self righteous lump in throat posh girls and boys from the BBC and Sky reporting, clueless as to the dynamics they have let loose. It is so Armageddon.
The best the CIA can come up with is , get a hit man on Putin, with the toffee nosed Brits indulging their love of labelling any nuisance a nut case. People laughed at Zelensky’s election because he had been a comedian. I spent a lot of spare time , before going on night shift at a warehouse ( 2008 -11 ), as a folk singer, musician and stand up comedian. I played at clubs and a university where the audience were obnoxious know alls.
I formed the conclusion that my performing colleagues came from smug upper middle class homes, well educated and fruitfully attending their expensive music lessons from expert teachers like me. They think they are clever and above the masses. They are totally intolerant of alternative opinions and take the piss out of conservatives like me. They think Putin is bluffing, but he had nowhere to go once the Anglo Americans set him up for regime change. Zelensky is a running dog his handlers could not now control even if they wanted to.

White House Report Card: Biden divides more as he calls for unity
This week’s White House Report Card finds President Joe Biden winning praise from his fans for renewing the call for unity and mockery from his critics who just don’t buy it.
In his first State of the Union address, the president presented a “unity agenda” that his supporters praised and hoped would lay the groundwork for a comeback for the Democrats and president. He called it “a unity agenda for the nation. We can do these things. It’s within our power. And I don’t see a partisan edge” to its elements.
Comment Biden and his gang are very dangerous people and there will always be a question mark over his election. The Democrats spent Trump’s entire term whipping up hatred and prejudice against him, so even if they did get more votes, their dirty behaviour says it all.
Biden is particularly unpleasant and and by no means as stupid as he wants us all to believe. He is another Uncle Joe. People just cannot get what’s happening because the media is in charge of Whitehouse publicity. The average American does not live like the comfortable folk we all see on TV. Even the Simpsons are progressively on message.
Media folk are expected to back all the right things like BLM and Ukraine’s heroic Zelensky. They have to underline their condemnation of Putin or they will end up vilified like Stephen Segal. There could never be a Bob Dylan for this dreadful epoch. Kids are watched and parents reported if their there is any sign of alternative opinions. Truly terrifying times for those of us who think.

Putin languages: Why he won’t speak English – Inside Putin’s bizarre power play
Prior to launching a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin had held high stakes talks with a number of western leaders, in an effort to diffuse tensions in the region. Most of these took place with the aid of an interpreter. But, what languages can Mr Putin speak?
What languages can Vladimir Putin speak?
Mr Putin does speak English, with his level of fluency often praised by onlookers.
In addition to Russian and English, the 69-year-old can also speak German.
According to the Kremlin’s spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, the Russian President’s English is good enough to correct his own interpreters.
Comment I spent some years working a night shift in a grim warehouse with East Europeans and Russians. The Russians encouraged me to learn Russian and we talked in that language, with me buying a text book for study. I did the same with Polish. It is good mental exercise. French and German is not so difficult because English is those two languages mixed up, due to Anglo Saxons and Norman invasions.
It is nonsense to say we have had mass immigration from the African and Islamic world. Europeans have much in common, including appallingly violent and cruel leaders. That is animal life. Facility with language should enhance communication and understanding, but in my experience, including 18 years as a teacher and lecturer, too many English people have poor literacy and communication skills. So that limits their ability to think because they cannot categorise, retain and analyse information.
In the U.K and U.S, that comes in handy because the masses have to be morons. However, the games being played now, on top of 2 years Covid lockdown, may well have some interesting and unintended consequences.. I have found being seriously harassed by State police and thrown on the mercy of psychiatrists and psychologists must informative. Those , once close to me, who have fed their vested interest to police, will have forgotten that I studied for a post graduate diploma in psychology and had been accepted , on the basis of my success, for a masters.
I declined the latter, having formed the conclusion that I could never be as arrogant in my judgements as being a professional would require. But the more stupid people are, the more seriously they are taken and the more seriously they take themselves.
Step out of line to question the system, then out comes the DSM , the paranoid schizophrenic label and the drugs. That is what they are suggesting about Vladimir Putin, and it is all so very British. In short , they want us to think that Putin is nuts , like Hitler, like Stalin and , dare I say it, like me ( sic ) R J Cook
Russia president Vladimir Putin says West sanctions ‘akin to declaration of war’
It comes as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said western countries are involved in ‘economic banditry’ against Russia and that Moscow would respond.
President Vladimir Putin said western countries’ sanctions on Russia are akin to a declaration of war.
The Russian leader was quoted by Reuters, as he also reinforced that his country has to defend Russian speakers in the eastern region of Ukraine, as well as its own interests.
He said: “These (sanctions) are methods of fighting against Russia.
“These sanctions that you can see are equivalent to declaring a war “.
Comment Vladimir Putin is absolutely correct, The west provoked this conflict to justify 8 years of genocide in the Donbas , to justify bringing in Ukraine into NATO via their corrupt placeman Yelensky, to get the regime change back to something like but worse than Yeltsin. They want Ukraine for the new demography of mass immigration and an idiot culture – they call it multi culture in U.K – that the elite can manipulate. Considering they have closed the only worthwhile news channel, RT, and we have to listen to endless biased propaganda delivered by posh boys and girls, makes a joke of knocking Russia for censorship. It is time they blocked the BBC World Service which is additionally funded by government as well as licence fees. It is a nauseating service that we are forced to pay for.
It is absolutely hypcriticasl for the western elite to decry Putin for association with the oligarchs created by corrupt drunken Yeltsin ,who were welcomed with stolen Russian money to Britain’s elite and on a par with the U.K State Asset strippers of the Thatcher and Blair eras.
The issue of offering corrupt Ukraine, from which the Biden’s have made a small fortune, NATO and EU membership is a direct and intentional threat to Russian security. The EU needs Third World migrants because rampant extreme feminism, political correctness and feminisation of white men in one parent families has killed marriage along with the birth rate,
Many of the children born into broken and one parent homes becoming feral and unteachable morons. Many turn to drugs, crime, go mad and even kill themselves. . Police and lawyers have the only growth industry in declining Britain.
Against this background, law breaker Johnson , his money grubbing team and an opposition party led by the former head of Britain’s still corrupt CPS, have perfect cover for ludicrous imperial style sabre rattling in favour of Ukraine. We are supposed to agree and follow this in our alleged democracy where we need a licence to protests. Idiots are desperate to get over to Ukraine from here , to live out a warrior fantasy, with no idea what war involves. Our so called Foreign Secretary gave them her blessing to break the current law and do this.
Sanctions are so extreme that they are intended to cause misery, starvation social breakdown and riots in Russia, so as to get the western elite’s longed for regime change. The idea that threatening Putin with a war crime tribunal aggainst this background is seriusly asking for more trouble. If the gas gets turned off, and I would have done this by now, there will be immediate chaos in Europe, with energy prices ever higher, along with everything else dependent on transport.
On top of this, total moons are still demanding a no fly zone. Of course corrupt placeman Yelinsky wants this because otherwise he is screwed. As for financial markets, higher gas prices will screw the west and beyond. Putin can always do a Hitler and float a new state backed currency and start thinking self sufficiency. If any more elite idiots and morn lackeys argue with this, then we won’t be sleepwalking into World War Three, we will be rocket propelled.
As for war crimes, it is astonishing that the Anglo U.S elite can moralise on that given their conduct in Serbia, Iraq , Syria and Libya, not to mention their cronies in Saudi Arabia. There is also the not so small matter of Julian Assange, seeking asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy, so the UK and U.S connived in Ecuador’s regime change to have him thrown out. He had been framed for a rape ( a catch all for men you don’t like as there is no statute of limitations in feminist dominated U.K ) he didn’t do.
So he was dragged out by our corrupt Metropolitan Police and locked away until such time as he can be sneaked off for extradition. His crime was to report , with evidence, massive U.S and U.S war crimes in the second Gulf War. These are the class of people who judge those of us who get in their way. R J Cook
Our cultural response to Russia is becoming hysterical
One of the problems with America’s populist impulses is that they have made it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for our society to know where to draw the line. It’s as if we are chronically unable to stop ourselves from being pushed down every slippery slope we happen across, even though we know what will happen once we reach the bottom.
That’s why we went from posting black squares on social media during the summer of 2020 to watching as minority-owned businesses were looted and burned to the ground, why “14 days to stop the spread” turned into two years of on-and-off COVID-19 restrictions, and why a well-meaning effort to hold Russia accountable for its invasion of Ukraine has led to Russian vodka being removed from grocery store shelves and Russian cats being banned from international competitions. We grasp on to any and every thing that seems morally significant with a fervor, and we fail to recognize that there is often a difference between what we believe to be just and what is prudent.
Russia ‘wants a war with NATO’, British military analyst claims
“Right now, at this moment in time, the Kremlin is so angry, so bitter and deluded, that it actually wants a war with NATO,” UK historian Dr Peter Caddick-Adams said.
Comment The above is more from the U.K’s so called free press. This incessant propaganda is intended to obscure the reality of how Russia has been set up by the Machiavellian Anglo U.S elite. the masses are so dumbed down, they won’t see it. Bismarck used these techniques to unite Germany, thus creating the jealousy leading to World War One. Very easy to offer scapegoats to the ignorant frightened masses. The issues from Russia’s point of view are national security and human rights in the Donbas. NATO deliberately provoked this war, the above article is them playing the wounded virgin – in spite of their history of profiteering illegal interfering self interested wars.

Heaven & Hell – “500 Euros For The Girl For The Night ” by Roberta Jane Cook
‘Heaven & Hell’ is the title of a chapter about war, in one of my new books due for publication next year – it was delayed due to the Covid nightmare and absurd lockodown.
Now we have the very convenient war on Russia and Ukraine , not necessarily unrelated to the ludicrous lockdown warm up, with the useless masking and injections that must never be questioned – I had mine, and the side effects were interesting.
This war is the ultimate side effect , with the western masses apparently set free for flag waving for Saint Yelensky and liberty from the evil Russian dictatorship. Here in U.K & U.S we have this wonderful free press and opportunity to protest under licence. This IS double speak and 1984 on steroids. I am writing to you all from Aircraft Carrier One. It’s fun.
The biblical concept of heaven and hell is useful and enduring, beloved of politicians including the bible writers. It is hard to believe that any God who could have made the universe would have come up with such mind games. No it came from us humans , descending from and behaving like the worst of apes.
The British created the United States in a straight line attack and genocide of divided Mongoloid Red Indian people. Coming from an adanced and politcally adept Europeran country , with a predominantly Germanic culture, it was relatively easy.
Gaining idependence from a half witted in bred German monarchy was also fairly easy and the States have sat pretty ever since. However, they have never forgotten their European origins and cannot leave Europe alone. Britain with pugnacious Ben Wallace and Lucky Liz Truss , as lead men of Aircraft Carrier One. The image is ‘Brave Little Ukraine.’ It is total bulls-it of course,
Germans built Angleland ( England ) which was then exported and developed into the United States. The concept of Anglo U.S exceptionalism was born. Their elites have never stopped looking down on the Slavs. Russia was destroyed by its monarchy, the last of which was headed Queen’s Victoria’s grandson Tsar Nicholas II, a pleasure obsessed man with a pleasure obsessed wife whose lover Rasputin, was painfully murdered by palace conspirators.
This type of self centred hypocrite is still in charge. They could not wait to overthrow reforming Gorbachov , encouraging their stooge Yelstsin and the State asset strippers they now have the cheek to condemn. They knew exactly what they were doing , and why. They were recreating the USSR in their own image. That included a new Russian elite living in London and New York, flying private jets and cruising their yachts. No pleasures were denied them while former Soviet people’s lives descended into what we see now.
Back in 2014, before I came out as transsexual, I was in Limassol Cyprus with my then partner Jane Fletcher, who was half Greek. I had arrived after her , because of work commitments and was staying in another hotel. I had been tutoring her eldest son and we got on very well. He came to ask me to go for a drink with him. He took me to a club where private striptease was advertised. I cautioned him about the dangers of such places, having never been in a strip club in my entire life.
I could not stop him so we ended up on high bar stools looking at the greasy barman and another Greek cowering over a CCTV screen. They explained they had seen us coming ( in other words , saw us as mugs ) and opened the doors.. We ordered drinks, me a boring bottle of Stella, the young man had the speciality of the house. The price was sky high, but I was earning a lot of money in trucking.
Behind us was a picture of darkness , except for the feint outline of a stage. We had hardly taken a sip when there was a very girly clatter of high heels on the floor , advancing in our direction. We turned to see four diminutive young and beautiful women in expensive and wonderful short dresses, high heels perfectly coordinated, excellent couture and make up. A cloud of expensive perfume preceded them.
A young blonde stepped very close to me, asking if I would buy her a drink. I said she was being rather forward and the drinks were rather expensive. Her silk glittering silver and blue mini dress covered thigh was being deliberately pressed close to me.
Her smile was practised. She attempted conversation and it was apparent she was Russian. She gave up on me, turning to my young friend more hopefully. Her space was filled by a very pretty girl wearing a yellow satin low cut top, black satin mini skirt and, high heels. As she pressed against me, it became obvious that she was wearing stockings and suspenders.
These young women were obviously on sale for sex. I am no prude, but this did not make me happy. These girls could have been my daughters. I suddenly realised what the grunting , banging and piercing orgasmic screams coming through the walls of my cheap hotel had been about, the night before. This club was just across the road from my hotel.
I made the same effort to discourage this girl with the long dark wavy hair. She too asked for a drink. I was too dumb it was just coloured water the girls took at a high punter paid for price to make them appear sociable and maybe tipsy. We chatted. She was naturally warm and friendly, but she seemed anxious about something.
She offered me a private striptease. I said, ‘You look beautiful with your clothes on and I couldn’t afford it. ‘ She said she would do it for free. I insisted there was no need. After that we talked of other things. I am an inveterate writer and journalist, even though the police insist that my entire life is a delusion and fantasy, with records to match. So I asked her where she came from. I could see she was all of 21. You should never ask a lady her age. She had escaped from Ukraine, where she had qualified as a primary school teacher.
Beneath my glamourous sexy exterior, I am really quite boring and caring – that of course does help me discover many truths about life. I found what she was telling me very sad. This was someone’s daughter, a baby to have been proud of , who parents would have nursed, spent precious money on for a happy childhood, and to have watched growing up. Why this ? She told me she feared for her family back home and hoped to make money for them. The man behind the bar cut in gruffly with ” 500 Euros for the girl for the night. “
If I had that sort of money, I would have taken her to dinner and let her have a night off, maybe she could have used my bed, while I sat up all night. But it would have done her no good. She would still have been trapped. When she asked me to visit the club next day, I had to tell her I was moving on. How do you help these girls escape the consequences of vile Anglo U.S elite regime change politics.
I have no time for egotistical feminist hate preachers who are simply bullies blaming ‘all white men for the world ‘s ills and crimes against women. The irony is that this horrible sex club was right next door to the police station on the main drag. It is impossible that they didn’t know what was going on because I simply , a stranger , walked through the door.

Finland showcases ties to CIA in defiance of Russia’s NATO threats
Finland and Sweden have decided to enhance their “information-sharing” with NATO in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine as they defy Moscow’s demands that the Nordic states keep the trans-Atlantic alliance at arm’s length.
“In response to Russia’s aggression, we have decided to strengthen our coordination and information sharing with Finland and Sweden,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters Friday. “Both countries are now taking part in all NATO consultations about the crisis.”

West is trying to ‘cancel’ Russia with sanctions for invasion of Ukraine, claims Kremlin spy chief
File photo: Sergey Naryshkin said western countries were trying to destroy the Russian state- Getty Images
Russia’s foreign intelligence director Sergei Naryshkin has claimed the west is trying to ‘cancel’ his country – alluding to cancel culture – after world powers imposed sanctions on Moscow following its invasion of Ukraine.
“The masks have been dropped. The west is not just trying to surround Russia with a new Iron Curtain,” he said. “We are talking about attempts to destroy our state — its ‘cancellation,’ as it is now customary to say in a ‘tolerant’ liberal-fascist environment.”
Comment The Anglo U.S led NATO have been working on this for the last 14 years, organising a coup to overthrow the democratically elected government. For the last 8 years Ukraine has been committing war crimes and killing innocent people. The OSCE declined to investigate the evidence or inspect the mass graves.
Biden is not going to talk to Vladimir Putin because he and his entourage are planning and hoping for a rebellion and Russian regime change. NATO could have stopped this, but cutting off Russia has is vital to NATO and NUKUS , along with the sort of regime change under Yeltsin which created the now vilified Oligarchs.
I was brought up with a black and white idea of wars being about good and bad, so joined the Air Training Corps, a feeder for the RAF. in 1963. We had shooting and flying lessons, did a lot of marching through town and attended camp. The Cold War needed to train kids like us. Short hair, shining boots and lots of square bashing were a way of life.
Later on , I embarked on my objective for pilot training in the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm. I soon showed my doubts. I was asked if I could kill without question. That is what war on the ground comes down to. A mature friend of mine from those bygone years , Ken Burrows, told me what it was like fighting with a Guards tank regiment in 1944.
He had been without food for a week. Ken told me, ‘I saw a live chicken. My lips curled up, I heard myself snarling and was drooling. That was war. We were like animals. It didn’t matter why we were killing, we just had to do it.’ Ken went on to join the police in the days when they were worth respect and trust.
Britain has no claim to fairness, justice or democracy now. The Thatcher years finished that off when corrupt fortunes were made, two dubious wars were started to get votes, the police were militarised to beat down the miners and trade Unions ( an essential and historic component of developing democracy ) were castrated, and effectively abolished. The U.K elite mock Russian dictatorship , yet we are ruined if we go off message. Our dictators are far more sophisticated and dangerous. Just watch them talking amongst themselves in Parliament. The U.S and E.U are no better.
To argue that we have a free press in U.K or U.S.A is laughable. During the Cold War , Russia had two newspapers, Pravda and Isvestia , Truth and News. The grim Russian people joked ‘There is no news in the truth and no truth in the news.’ Reality is there is no difference in western corporate mainstream media NOW , it is just more long winded , over complicated and with lots of emotive images.

The week Vladimir Putin lost control
A week ago, Vladimir Putin seemed unstoppable. Russian troops had crossed into Ukraine in overwhelming numbers, and it seemed it was a matter of days until resistance was crushed.© Provided by The Telegraph Vladimir Putin
The West looked powerless to do anything about it. The US and its allies failed to agree the unprecedented sanctions they had threatened, instead delivering a few limited measures against individual oligarchs and banks.
The courage of Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainians was already clear, but they looked doomed to a hopeless last stand.
Comment More of the same. The western media never mentions not honouring Minsk, Ukraine’s war crimes in the Donbas , NATO plans to move into Ukraine and threaten . Navalny was part of this process. MI6 and CIA have been tireless in filtrating on the ground, in efforts to undermine Russia and waste its great culture and discipline. Drunken decadent west loving Yeltsin was supposed to have finished it off.
Yeltsin’s creation of peoples’ asset stripping oligarchs was regarded as brilliant, and in the Thatcher mould. Now the Anglo American speaks with forked tongue as the Red Indians were supposed to have said before they were wiped out.
Red Indian culture has been buried. The elite want to bury Russia’s now. All we see on British media is anti Russian propaganda , pictures of the same shelled tower block and crying women with their children. There is no mention of how NUKUS set this all up for regime change and to shut down Nordstream 2 because the Anglo Americans ( NUKUS ) wants to sell Liquid Shale Gas..
Media commentary is melodramatic, reporters choking on staccato affected reports. No analysis. The theme is Putin caused the war, just as Hitler apparently caused World War Two all on his own. There are lots of historical references, but none about how three competing branches of the same Royal Family, British, German and Russian, all grandsons of Britain’s Queen Victoria , were culpable for World War One. There is no mention of how Germans were ground down by a punitive unfair non negotiated peace settlement , thus providing fertile soil for Nazism. R J Cook
I am not sure who has been leading who in the Russo Ukraine prelude to World War Three, U.K or U.S – NUKUS. The U.K has years of class and related arrogance in leadership. The U.S jumps in feet first. The EU is just a posturing egotistical vainglorious crowd of idiots keen to forget the last two world wars and their empires.
Whatever, most people have no idea of the role NUKUS have for using Yelensky to conduct genocide on ethnic Russians in the Donbas because they won’t abandon their culture. This has been far worse than the Uighur Muslims plight because they haven’t been bombed in spite of their provocative dissidence.
This isn’t about freedom or democracy. It is more regime change which will make Russia a serious environmental additional hazard from exploitation and as overspill for Third population expansion. Yelensky is, like all posturing trendy comedians, in it for himself and audience approval. A very dangerous man.
The two stories below are evidence enough that we are already in a world war. Putin has been prejudged a war criminal while Yelensky can bask in NUKUS elite exceptionalism. Assange’s fate is further evidence that the global elite are on the march. Sanctioning the oligarchs is an amusing sideshow because they have been welcomed at the western elite’s table for many years.
We should be more concerned that Putin has nowhere to go and there is no comparison between his planned demise and the Libyan leader’s – another apparent tyrant betrayed by the west when he was about to create an African trading community to threaten the elite’s dominance. BLM and throwing ancient slave trader’s statues in the river was another sideshow, just like all the equality hogwash,
Russia’s Foreign Minister has said that there is “no alternative” to sanctions over the Ukraine crisis other than World War Three, warning that a third global conflict would undoubtedly be a “nuclear war”.
Speaking at a live news conference on Thursday, Sergei Lavrov said thoughts of a nuclear war “are not in the heads of Russians” and that the Kremlin has a clear “military doctrine which describes the perimeters and conditions for deployment of nuclear weapons”.

Former CIA chief says Russia’s economy could collapse and Moscow scared of even opening stock exchange.
David Petraeus, who was speaking with Fox News on Wednesday, cited sanctions imposed by the United States, UK and the European Union following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last week and warned that its economy could “completely plummet” as a result.
Mr Petraeus argued: “I do think that some of the economic measures that have taken are so draconian that it literally could be a race between how quickly the economy just collapses in certain respects”.

Zelensky warns of ‘end for Europe’ as Russians hit nuclear power station
The Ukrainian president told Europe to “wake up” to the threat of Putin and urged “anybody who knows the word Chernobyl” to help prevent another nuclear disaster on the continent.
Ukraine’s leader has warned it will be the “end for Europe” if an explosion occurs due to Russian forces shelling the continent’s largest nuclear power plant.
In an emotional speech in the middle of the night, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he feared an explosion at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant that would be “the end for everyone. The end for Europe. The evacuation of Europe”.
“Only urgent action by Europe can stop the Russian troops,” he said. “Do not allow the death of Europe from a catastrophe at a nuclear power station.”
When Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan dictator, was torn from his hideout in the sewers in Sirte in 2011 and killed by his own people, Vladimir Putin was apparently shaken.
“That’s his worst nightmare,” according to Douglas London, a retired 34-year veteran of the CIA’s Clandestine Service, and author of The Recruiter: Spying and the Lost Art of American Intelligence. “I heard that Putin was greatly affected watching crowds ridicule, torture and ultimately kill Gaddafi.”
Sanctioning oligarchs won’t stop Putin, analysts say
Sanctioning Russia’s oligarchs and wealthy businessmen likely won’t stop Russian President Vladimir Putin from continuing his invasion of Ukraine, according to analysts who argue that oligarchs hold little sway over the Kremlin strongman.
The Biden administration has announced sanctions against numerous Russian businessmen and billionaires, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that “one of the big factors is, of course, the proximity to President Putin. We want him to feel the squeeze, we want the people around him to feel the squeeze.”
“We are at war with Vladimir Putin. We are not at war with a bunch of oligarchs,” Dan Hoffman, the CIA’s former Moscow station chief, told the Washington Examiner. “If you’re upset that they made money and maybe they’re corrupt, well, OK, fine, then take all of your legal stuff and go deal with it from a legal perspective, but don’t be under any illusions that these guys are part of Vladimir Putin’s inner circle or that they can hold any sway over him — they can’t.”
Comment Biden and his merry men clearly behind all of this, want a Brutus moment. They see Putin as Caesar. History is repeating itself. This is not about democracy and mass freedom. War never was and never is. However, Putin will not die without a fight .R J Cook.

Biden joined Zelenskiy “in urging Russia to cease its military activities in the area and allow firefighters and emergency responders to access the site,” the statement said.
Comment The Biden administration is clearly behind this whole business. Liquid gas has changed the energy market. The environmental impact of shipping doesn’t bother these people. Rising energy prices , including oil, are no matter either because it is not only Russian oligarchs with yachts and private jets. R J Cook

Putin says he will destroy the ‘anti-Russia’ created by West and insists Ukraine invasion going to plan
He said: “The special military operation is proceeding strictly in line with the timetable. According to plan.
“All objectives that were set are being resolved successfully.”
Mr Putin’s comments seemed designed to rebut statements by Western governments and intelligence agencies that Russia’s campaign has stumbled in the face of logistical problems, tactical mistakes and fiercer-than-expected resistance from Ukraine.
Hearing About Stalin – by Roberta Jane Cook.
Comment It is interesting that these countries, with moralising U.K heading the list, are sure that war crimes have been committed, with the war in progress.
How can the U.K have the bare faced cheek to condemn Russia for war crimes when it forced whistle-blower Julian Assange to take refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy, then the U.S funds a regime change in Ecuador to get Assange thrown out into the arms of London’s bully boy police ? Assange has been in jail ever since, facing extradition and severely ill. All he did was leak details of serious Anglo U.S War crimes.
The OSCE had a similar attitude to Serbian war crimes and the more recent Donbas mass civilian killings by the Yeleinsky Government.
Britain is a terrifying country now, as is the U,S.A leading the world hypocritically into war once again. It is an authoritarian dictaorship. NATO is very dangerous with the State Department hit list which they are working down. Putin looks like he wants to challenge it , That is very dangerous.
Oligarchs are a distraction to appeal to the masses’ jealousy, without mentioning how the western elite have been stealing wealth and pampering themselves for centuries. An International Criminal Court prosecutor on Wednesday opened an investigation into war crimes in Ukraine after referrals from 39 countries including the UK, Germany and France. Their minds are made up. Those 3 leading European Countries have a history of war crimes, but we have to keep hearing about Stalin.

Vladimir Putin’s Speech To Russia
This is an extract from Mr Putin’s rRead ecent announcement.
I want to say that the special military operation is proceeding strictly in line with the timetable. According to plan. All the tasks that have been set are being successfully resolved.
He went on to give a number of examples of Russian soldiers’ “heroic” actions and said the families of Russian soldiers who had been killed during the fighting would be compensated.
Now on Ukrainian territory, our soldiers and officers are fighting for Russia, for a peaceful life for the citizens of Donbas, for the denazification and demilitarisation of Ukraine, so that we can’t be threatened by an anti-Russia right on our borders that the west has been creating for years.
Reactions as ex Chelsea star posts supportive pic with Abramovich
“As if Abramovich didn’t have enough PR problems, he’s now getting compliments from John Terry,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Roman Abramovich has announced his intention to sell Chelsea after 19 years amid fears he could be targeted by the UK Government given his proximity to the Russian state.
He has stated all net proceeds from any potential deal would go into a new charity foundation for Ukraine and is also understood to have been attempting to broker a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr Bryant said: “Some of us are anxious about why we’re not going further on the sanctioning of individuals.
“It’s a mystery to me why Roman Abramovich has not yet been sanctioned. The Government itself knows that he’s been engaged in illicit activity and he’s a person of concern to the Government, which is why they’ve not been encouraging him to come to the UK.
“I don’t know why Alisher Usmanov has not yet been sanctioned. He’s been sanctioned by the EU but not by us.”
Comment It is an issue for me as to why the oligarchs are roped in to this. They were the Russian equivalent of the Thatcher vultures who moved in to decimate Britain’s nationalised assets. Finance and obscene profit came from a lot of money borrowed from U,K based banks and welcomed as an outcome of collapsing communism.
That was obscene and popular at the time. They want oligarchs money and support against Putin, either or both now it’s time to call in the chips. It doesn’t detract from the 8 years of western provocation in Donbas , NATO provocation, massive biased media coverage , closing down alternative views or the fact that this could end up going nuclear – not to mention those already killed.
Many idiots are still calling for a no fly zone and the culture secretary wants RTs licence revoked. It uses an EU members satellite which has been switched off by EU & U.K order. The intention is to topple Putin and Zelenskyy is the gatekeeper who demands a big pay off. Putin has no way to go except more war or give in. If he doesn’t, the carnage and possible holocaust will be the Anglo U.S EU NATO elite’s fault.
Putin has also been warned by U.K smug incompetent complacent ignorant patronising arrogant so called Defence Secretary that he and his upper echelons will face War Crimes Tribunal. The would be as cut and dried as Serbia’s, so what doe they have to lose ? We in the west are being led as morons by greedy self seeking pompous imbeciles. R J Cook .

Watch: Old clip of Zelensky shouting ‘Putin has been toppled’ on Ukrainian TV resurfaces
UK viewers will be able to watch episodes of hit Ukrainian show ‘Servant of the People’ from Sunday after Channel 4 secured the rights.
Before he was the leader of the free world, Volodymyr Zelensky was a comic and actor and starred in a hugely popular Ukrainian TV series called ‘Servant of the People’ that helped catapulthim from a make-believe president to a real-life one, battling the Russian invasion.
The show ran for three seasons between 2015 and 2019 — with the final episode airing just 53 days before Zelensky assumed office following his landslide election victory.
A surreal clip from the show has recently resurfaced where Zelensky yells “Putin has been toppled!”
At last, Europe awakens to Russian threat
by Washington Examiner | March 03, 2022
In less than a week, European foreign policy has been turned on its head.
Before Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine last Thursday, the European Union had never agreed to ban a nation from the SWIFT banking messaging system, Germany had not sent weapons to a conflict zone since World War II, and Switzerland had remained neutral since 1815.
That all changed last Thursday after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky joined a video call with EU leaders about to debate a new round of sanctions against Russia. If Europe “doesn’t help us today,” Zelensky said on the call, “if you do not strongly help Ukraine, then tomorrow, war will knock on your doors.”
“This might be the last time you see me alive,” Zelensky closed.

Reality Check: A “no-fly zone” over Ukraine means WAR
Western pundits and journalists are all in a flutter over Ukraine. They think it’s terribly exciting, and want to be seen to be tough and decisive. Their internal monologues probably feature the word “Churchillian” quite a lot.
Naturally, that means a lot of them are saying some really stupid things.
This includes widespread calls for a NATO-imposed “No-Fly Zone” over Ukrainian airspace. This proposal is all over the media, even coming out of the porcine mouth of Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the UK’s Labour party:
More Hypocrisy by F.S
Macron says Putin wants to take us back to the age of empires.

Imran Khan strikes huge trade deal with Russia despite international outcry over war
As countries impose sanctions and seek to isolate Vladimir Putin, Khan became the first leader to sign a new trade deal with Russia since the attack.
He said the pair had “great discussions” on his visit to Moscow last week, which took place as Putin launched the invasion.
They signed a bilateral agreement and Khan also agreed to import two million tons of wheat from Russia.
Comment If you read on in the above article , you come to the following interesting contentious line : ‘The US reacted angrily to the news of Mr Khan’s visit even before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began, saying the onus was on every “responsible” country to voice objection to Mr Putin’s actions.‘
Responsible for what or who I ask myself ? The answer is , responsible for and to the Godly Anglo U.S oppressive world ravaging , secretive , lying, string pulling , deceitful self interested elite.
It is hard to sympathise with Russian oligarchs whose wealth was stolen from the hard working Russian people, then squandered on garbage, like Premier League football teams pandering to mindless ball watchers, craving canine sex, full of posturing posers , London mansions, good time women and donations to the Tory Party.
But is the people of Donbas , trapped Russian soldiers, desperate stoic Russian fathers bereaved wives and mothers and working class Russians I care about.
The Russian revolution was caused by our ridiculously venerated Royal Family’s close relatives. Their last Tsar was a decadent self interested grandson of the fecund Queen Victoria. Another of her grandson was the German Kaiser Wilhelm II. The new and first Communist leader , Vladimir Ulyanov aka Lenin, was conveniently assassinated to make way for the tyrannical Stalin who is being used to define Putin’s hopeless struggle to modernise Russia.
Putin never had a hope. Nor did Gorbachev because Russia has the resources that the western elite want, whilst pretending to care about the environment. Pakistan is supposed to wait for the western takeover and pay western prices for grain because it is not supposed to get anywhere the western elite does not want it to. That is why the elite comforts Islamists because it does not want them to see any real truth beyond , especially concerning them. The same goes for the rest of the world’s poor countries , which is why Latin America gets invaded when it all gets too much for the CIA.
This site , RCONB is small fry, but is still under threat and carries official warnings and blocks. Ultimately there is no freedom of speech or movement.
The best definition of freedom is widely attributed to the German philosopher Hegel : ‘Freedom is the recognition of necessity.’ In my case that is likely to be one form of suicide or another. Curiously , without open explanation , a state imposed psychiatrist has officially reported that ‘Roberta would be very upset if she saw all the records about her ………. Roberta is more likely to die by misadventure than suicide.’ How is that for a warning from our western style democracy ? R J Cook

‘No food in markets, no money in ATMs…’ Indian students send SOS from Ukraine
Indian students stranded in Ukraine appeal to the External Affairs Ministry to rescue them.
“There are bombs going off in cities every 15 minutes, no food in markets, no money in ATMs,” they said in the video appeal to the Indian government.

Kherson falls as Russia pummels port cities and cuts off power, water, and supplies
Russia continued its all-out assault on Ukraine Wednesday afternoon, capturing the strategically important port city of Kherson near the Black Sea and making it the first major Ukrainian city to fall.
Russian forces had circled the city, but after days of fighting and being severely outnumbered, Ukrainian soldiers retreated to the nearby city of Mykolaiv, the New York Times reported, citing the mayor of the city.
“There is no Ukrainian army here,” Kherson Mayor Ihor Kolykhaev said. “The city is surrounded.”
There had been uncertainty earlier about Kherson’s fate, with Russia claiming it had captured the city early Wednesday while the mayor said it remained under Ukrainian control. That changed by early afternoon.
Putin facing shell shock as US moves to ‘choke’ Russia with major retaliation
The US and the UK have both announced devastating sanctions on Russia in response to the invasion of Ukraine. The US have targeted nearly 80 percent of all banking assets in Russia, while the UK has frozen the assets of all major Russian banks. Patrick Reid, currency specialist at business consultancy the Adamis Principle, discussed the effectiveness of sanctions with Express.co.uk, and detailed the “huge” damage the West has inflicted on Russia with their latest move.
Comment At elite level, the U.S and U.K are one. Leaving the EU for a more overt U.S Alliance was a major factor behind promoting Brexit. The U.K elite never intended its masses to benefit from the E.U. That is why they infested it with as many petty laws as they could, significantly warping the original ideals.
The U.K elite is still in Europe holding their elite cousins hands. Shutting down Nordstream 2 is vital to their goals, as Biden and Johnson have said out loud. NATO could have backed off and the western elite allowed Donbas freedom from the genocide their proxy has been inflicting on Donbas rather than honour Minsk.
The British and U.S are all about elite money, lies and mass misery. As a former teacher , public servant and senior member of my local council, among other things, I know how gullible, robotic and easily led the masses are. Their obedience to insane lockdown rules demonstrated the power of fear. That is what we have here. R J Cook

Starting a nuclear war will do nothing to help the people of Ukraine.TIM BLACK

This is a deadly serious moment. Russia, a military superpower with its nuclear arsenal reportedly at the ready, is waging war in Ukraine. Tensions are high. Clarity is lacking. And the Ukrainian people, as courageous and brave as their resistance has been, remain desperate.

Alexei Mordashov: Russia’s richest man is now an EU sanctions target
Alexei Mordashov – who owns a third of Europe’s biggest tour operator and is its largest single shareholder – may be becoming something of a liability for Tui, whose shares are listed in London, after the EU added him to its sanctions list on Monday night.
While Mordashov has not been sanctioned in the UK, his business interests in the region will now be severely curtailed.
The EU has outlined various concerns about Mordashov: it claims that Rossiya Bank, in which he has a financial interest, is the “personal bank” of senior Russian officials who have benefited from the annexation of Crimea. The bloc also said it believes media businesses he is invested in had helped destabilise Ukraine through pro-Russian television stations.
Comment Western hypocrisy knows no bounds. Asset stripping Russian oligarchs were promoted by the Anglo U.S alliance and welcome in London following the western backed Yeltsin coup. Their wealth is no worse than the western elite’s obscene norm becoming part of the British greed culture, even donating to the Tory Party.. Sanctions will simply hit the lower orders who depend on the post Yeltsin world wide effects. Recession will deepen and the rich will get a reset and mortgage repossessions. The elite culled the masses well i n the last two world wars. what is the difference now ?
All along the way, western media ignores the Minsk treachery and Ukraine’s coup leading to genocide in Donbas. They ignore invasive U.S oil and gas interests , backed by Britain’s grotesque ruling elite. They have an agenda and NATO is the Anglo U.S elite vested interest which exempts itself from its own war crimes in the Middle East, jailing Assange and Manning are prime examples of ths vile doubkle standard and propensity t lie.

From comedian to ‘Churchill’: Ukraine’s Zelensky ‘has risen to the moment’
President Volodymyr Zelensky has become a symbol of resistance to the Russian invasion that is widely considered to be the largest conventional military operation since World War II, a role he assumed not long after cracking jokes and acting on the big screen.
The 44-year-old former actor and comedian, who assumed office in May 2019, is now facing the biggest challenge of his relatively short political career. Many observers believe he has risen to the occasion.
“Pun intended, coming from a comedian, I think most people saw him as a clown when he was first elected, and to see him turning into Churchill with this resolute wartime leadership I think has impressed and inspired many,” Matt Kroenig, a former Defense official and current Georgetown University professor and Vandenberg Coalition advisory board member, told the Washington Examiner.
Churchill , entertaining, playing to the gallery. Roberta Jane Cook
This is not such a stupid comparison as it might seem ,coming from old ‘sleepy Joe’ and the elite behind this regime change resource and money grabbing war the Anglo Americans provoked in the name of NATO.
Churchill was militarily incompetent. He was gung ho in South Africa putting those who rescued him at risk. He organised the insane Gallipoli campaign where the ANZACS were butchered by the Turks. Dunkirk was a resounding defeat , but Churchill tried to stop Gort’s retreat, pushing him into oblivion for disobeying his orders to be slaughtered. My father was wounded there.
Churchill negotiated the punitive Lend Lease because his party had appeased Hitler and run down defences. The strength of the diverse empire had the strength of a balloon skin. As Churchill’s son noted , ‘The British Empire was built on the cheap.’ Dividing and ruling people was crucial, which is an issue in Ukraine. Poor foreign policy and grovelling to the U.S alienated old friend and ally Japan IN 1939, driving them into the arms of Hitler.
More military incompetence under Churchill saw a quick surrender to inferior numbers of Japanese in Singapore, when Percival was surprised by an attack from the apparently impossible jungle . It was rather like the invasion of France, through the forest and round the famous Maginot Line which exiled King Edward VIII had toured and passed on details to his Nazi friends. These Percival types were the kind of men who led so many British soldiers to death in World War One, coming out over promoted and supremely arrogant.
There is no doubt that Churchill excelled at playing to the gallery, bombastic and melodramatic. Churchill had been an appalling Home Secretary and Chancellor between wars. He got the top job as always happens in this country. He was a bullsh-tter and it was easy to knife Chamberlain who was dying of cancer.
After the war he, as a condescending half British half American descendant of military aristocracy, wanted to destroy the Soviet Union with nuclear missiles. Many have compared him to Hitler. It is certainly the case that he was not keen on the offer of Jewish refugees. Jews were not the reason for Britain declaring war on Germany. It was money and expediency. They, along with France, fermented the poverty and resentment with their so called peace settlement. Ex soldier Hitler, holder of 2 Iron Crosses, was the front man for big German business that could get nowhere because of burdensome punitive reparations.
When Hitler’s Naziz took hold, the British elite encouraged it because they thought they could use it to ultimately destroy the Soviets and the communism that was feeding off of the great depression – when the rich were having fun while the poor starved, which was a great reward for World War One sacrifice.
U.K daytime TV is currently pumping out the wartime propaganda film dramas etc. Mainstream media is full of anti Russian propaganda. Led by the Biden administration, they know what their endgame is. The rest of it is about making it up as they go along. So it is anybody’s guess as to where this is leading, coming on top of Covid lockdown measures – which will have given a lot of planning time with the masses already on the edge of insanity and looking for new purpose to their messed up hopeless lives in recession.
The people in charge of the U.K are very clever and much better at crossword puzzles than I am. They have the clues and will be filling in all the boxes after puzzling over the answers. Common people don’t see the clues. They just take the official answers on trust.
Biden to release 30M more barrels from strategic oil reserve as prices climb
The Biden administration will join with other governments to deploy 60 million barrels of crude oil from strategic reserves in an effort to counteract the increase in oil and prices caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Satellite images show 40-mile Russian military convoy near Kyiv
Satellite images show a Russian military convoy stretching more than 40 miles long near Ukraine’s capital.
Maxar Technologies, a space technology company based in Colorado, said Monday evening that the length of the convoy — consisting of armored vehicles, tanks, towed artillery, and other logistical vehicles — on the roadways north of Kyiv had grown substantially since observing it to be roughly 3.5 miles long Sunday and 17 miles earlier Monday, according to CNN.
Nato’s chief Jens Stoltenberg called on Russia to end the war in Ukraine and withdraw all its forces, adding the alliance would not send troops or combat jets to support Kyiv as it does not want to become part of the conflict.
“The Russian assault is totally unacceptable and it is enabled by Belarus,” Stoltenberg said on Tuesday after meeting Polish president Andrzej Duda.
“Nato is a defensive alliance, we do not seek conflict with Russia. Russia must immediately stop the war, pull all its forces from Ukraine and engage in good faith in diplomatic efforts,” he added.
UN should evict Russia, then implement no-fly zone in Ukraine
If Russian dictator Vladimir Putin continues to prosecute his self-chosen war in Ukraine, the United Nations ought to use its Article 42 powers to do a collective military intervention against Russian forces.
It can and should do so after implementing Ukraine’s suggestion to evict Russia from the U.N. Security Council, because the U.N. never officially authorized Russia to take the former Soviet Union’s permanent Security Council seat. Furthermore, as Russia is brazenly violating the U.N. Charter, it could and should be booted from the whole assembly, regardless. Without a veto from Russia, the U.N.’s collective security provisions can be activated and a no-fly zone enforced in order to keep Ukraine from being conquered.
Comment The lesson to be learned here is that globalisation has gone too far. There is no turning back. The dynamic will be elite greed and mass stupidity. The wealthy elite call the tune. The people of the Donbas do not matter to that elite.
The truth about the rise of Zeliensky does not matter. China’s Muslims matter to the elite because a moralising stick is needed to contain a China upon which Western consumerism depends. That dependency is mutual.
Forcing Russia out of the U.N and extending NATO to the point of encircling Russia tells us where this is going. Our elites won’t worry about the masses feeling the pain. We have to be culled every so often as in the last two World Wars. Russia’s young are protesting. They need western pleasure and dollars more than Europe s supposed to need Russian gas at the moment.
Ultimately only the the rich ruling classes’ culture matters. Putin will achieve nothing here except hIs own defeat and Russia’s. It is a pity because he has right on his side, much more so than the Anglo U.S led adventures in the Middle East where death tolls and war crimes do not matter, only jailing whistle-blowers like Manning and Assange does.

Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin appears to defend Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine
Former Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin has appeared to defend his country’s invasion of Ukraine in a post on social media which parrots president Vladimir Putin’s rhetoric about ‘fighting back Nazism.’
The 42-year-old has gone against the grain of a slew of Russian stars and celebrities — including the likes of tennis players Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev — who have made public declarations in favour of peace over war, by seemingly attempting to justify the violent assault Russia launched on Ukraine last week.
Comment Oh dear, this man’s brain has not been destroyed by blows to the head. He actually sees the bigger picture that we are not supposed to see in the west. He is supposed to be on message in case he gets banned. We aren’t supposed to know that Ukraine’s government is a western puppet that has been practising genocide on Donbas for 8 years or that the West reneged on the Minsk Agreement.
We are not supposed to connect with what they are involved in with Syria and why, or their vile post 1990 destabilisation of the Middle East and victimisation of Iraq for 9/11. That was a Saudi U.S MI6 intelligence plot that gave us mass migration and oppressive invasive anti terror laws.
We are not supposed to know that this is elite greed for Russia’s resources. We are not supposed to know that Kosovo wreaked genocide on Serbia and practices Islamic intolerance to the west’s complete satisfaction because religious obsession mesmerises and distracts the masses from global reality. We are not supposed to know that Clinton needed a war to distract from his work as a sex pest. We are not supposed to see Blair for the war criminal he is or why Assange is still locked up for leaking the truth about our Hypocracies and NUKUS ( AKA NATO ). It is all so nauseating.

Ukraine invasion: Kosovo requests permanent US military base and Nato membership

Kosovo’s Defence Minister Armend Mehaj said on Sunday: “Accelerating Kosovo’s membership in Nato and having a permanent base of American forces is an immediate need to guarantee peace, security and stability in the Western Balkans”.

Russians ‘crying in shame’ over new reality of sanctions following Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine
MOSCOW – The Flaner, a spacious restaurant in the old part of Moscow, was buzzing as usual on Sunday night. Every table was taken, a few visitors were waiting in line for a vacant seat by the bar, chatting about the latest news. The conversations circled around the unexpected crises, violence in Ukraine and unpredictable future. People complained about giant long lines to banks, no money in ATMs, authorities blocking Facebook and Russian soldiers dying in Ukraine. The spoilt Russian elite was trying to figure out the rules for the new reality.
Taking this story at face value, Russia and ultimately China might as well give up and accept the ruinous western elite policies that will continue to rape the earth for profitable resources, stoke up religion, ignorance and WOKE bigotry with consequent mass BAME overpopulation. Pollution, war disease famine and ecological collapse.
But don’t worry there’ll be drugs and booze to deaden the pain and then the earth will be a dead place.
It seems things have just drifted too far in Russia. They have not valued their own currency. It has been too much westernisation and worship of ‘Johnny Dollar’ as personified by the Oligarchs.
It is time the world stopped making the dollar the monopoly money of trading commodities and energy. Russia needs to turn off the gas. They are not going to gain any form of consideration. This conflict is driven by Anglo U.S elites. It doesn’t matter that Liz Truss is astonishingly ignorant of World, and particularly European history.
What my Auntie, who fled the Russians in 1944, taught me of war and refugees
The losses and shock inflicted on my family feel strikingly similar to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the impact it is already having on the country’s people.
“I was born at the beginning of the Second World War and I will die at the beginning of the third”. These are the words of my grandmother’s sister, or, as I call her, Auntie.
My grandmother, who raised me, died 12 years ago. I was too young then to realise I was the granddaughter of a child refugee who fled when the Russians invaded Basarabia in 1944 – a region which now sprawls across two-thirds of modern-day Moldova and into Ukraine.
The losses and shock inflicted on my family feel strikingly similar to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and the impact it is already having on that country’s people.
And, with her being among the last people alive to know what happened, I feel compelled to call her and find out what happened in a chapter of my family’s life which I hoped had been consigned to history.
Auntie is now 82. I could – and maybe should – have called earlier, but trauma is a roadblock: it renders asking questions hard, and answering them harder still.

Referring to “oil and gas shale in Russia” Mr Dorgans, who is also a member of the Ashurst firm, noted: “Because even if imports and exports are relatively low figures, there have been considerable investments made by French players in Russia, even if they were paused in 2014.”

Putin Orders Russian Nuclear Deterrence Forces to Be on High Alert
Zelensky announces talks will be held in BelarusBy Jack Phillip
President Vladimir Putin put his country’s nuclear deterrence forces on high alert on Sunday, announcing the move in a televised meeting with top ministers, coming as Russian troops and tanks continue to wage a conflict in Ukraine.
“Western countries are not only taking unfriendly actions against our country in the economic area. I’m speaking about the illegitimate sanctions that everyone is well aware of. However, the top officials of the leading NATO countries also make aggressive statements against our country as well,” Putin said on Sunday, according to state-run media.
Comment I am sure the west have done the same and more besides. NATO set this up with the puppet government U.S led coup, the greed to shut down Nordsteam 2 and a blind eye to Donbas genocide which they have supported and armed along with the U.K and MI6. R J Cook
Zelensky unconvinced peace negotiations with Russia will succeed: Report
Comment Of course Zelenskiy is not convinced because he is only going to accept what he and NUKUS wants. Nothing has changed for him, but Putin , the Donbas, 8 years of Zelenskiy and Anglo U.S led genocide are at stake. U.S are experts at cover ups and morality based war crime, as with Julian Assange. Zelenskiy is protected by the Anglo U.S elite ex ceptionalism, so will not face a war crimes tribunal. NATO’s answer to everything is ‘More Nato.’
I am running out of things to say. Europe, barring small fry like Hungary, are flooding the corrupt western elite serving puppet government with weapons for more genocide. they have shut down TV stations and airspace, also confiscating Russian property without due process. this follows on from 2 years Covid tyranny. We are in a totalitarian censorship world where it is OK to massacre the wrong sort of people, while bleating about humanitarianism. Nato is a war mongering menace, but apart from the nuclear option I se no solution. Nato is also a very profitable organisation and friend of the Anglo U.S EU arms industry. Their activities across the globe make a nonsense of saving the planet.
They are part of the vile planet eating overpopulating ignorance fed insanity leading us to oblivion. If and when Putin falls, Russia will turn into the same moral and wasteful cruel and unjust slag heap that the Anglo U.S and pumped up EU lackeys already are. R J Cook
Putin threatening Ukraine with ‘final solution’ in desperate attempt to secure victory
The “final solution” was notably a plan for the genocide of millions of Jews Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler adopted during World War II.

Russia has been targeting Kyiv with near-constant shelling since Thursday, with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reporting civilian areas had been heavily targeted.

U.S.A и U,K на пути вниз делают опасные времена – комментарий от Роберты Джейн Кук.
Коррумпированные элиты США и Великобритании должны вернуть ельцинские времена. Путин не глуп и знает, что на карту поставлено национальное выживание России. Если он не будет бороться и не получит поддержку, его страна скатится в массу мультикультурного безумия, заражающего Запад, открытый для массовой иммиграции из стран третьего мира и их религий.
Западная элита сильно зависит от Китая и боится его союза с Россией. Это очень серьезно. Западная элита не хочет говорить о Донбассе и не хочет “Северного потока-2”, пока не добьется смены режима. США хотят навязать Европе свой сжиженный газ и гораздо более высокие цены на энергию и жизнь. НАТО хочет контролировать Черное море. Это не имеет ничего общего с демократией, если не считать, что демократия определяется как “правительство богатых для народа”. США стали причиной более 80% послевоенных конфликтов. Их 6% мирового населения ежегодно потребляют 52% всех мировых природных ресурсов.
Правящий класс ЕС чувствует себя самодовольно и комфортно. В этом сценарии возможно самое худшее. США хотят контролировать мир с помощью своих бегущих собак из Великобритании. Лицемерие просто тошнотворно. Совершенно очевидно, что Владимира Путина спровоцировали на эту ситуацию: геноцид на Донбассе продолжается последние 8 лет, после поддержанного Западом переворота, который, по мнению идиотов, теперь является демократией.
Возможно, лидер Украины был комиком, но современные комики – это умные и часто очень неприятные люди. Их не следует путать с клоунами и марионетками вроде Бориса Джонсона.

Ukraine lodges case against Russia at world court – Zelensky
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Ukraine has filed a suit against Russia at the highest U.N. court in The Hague for disputes between states, President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Sunday.
Comment No doubt this has been guided by Britain and U.S.A elites who are obviously exempt from such proceedings, hence Iraq, Assange, Syria, Yemen etc. Ukraine itself should have been persecuted for the war crimes that NATO are currently empire building upon. R J Cook
China ‘could attack Taiwan’ after seeing West’s response to Russia invasion, warns expert
China may be emboldened by the lack of military response to Russia and invade Taiwan, a professor has warned.
The UK and other western allies have used harsh sanctions to condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin but have not sent in military help as Ukraine is not part of Nato.
Comment This is rabble rousing to justify NATO ( NUKUS ) taking overt action in Ukraine as the ultimate regime power grab that could really trigger world war. R J Cook

The “Baltic Leader” was headed for St. Petersburg but was diverted to the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer in northern France between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. (0200-0300 GMT), Captain Veronique Magnin of the French Maritime Prefecture told Reuters.
Either Putin gives up and walks away or Russia is up for grabs by the western elite. That elite has exploited Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Indian sub continent and China. The world’s real problem is the super rich and they are the ones who control events. There are no grounds for optimism. Anglo U.S elite led NATO have forced the issue. Russia either accepts ICBMs on its borders and eventual NATO takeover and squandering of its resources or the war will get worse.
Britain has one of the worst leaders. Boris Johnson playing to the gallery, shouting, arm waving and gurning in front of his cheering party, also admired by the alleged opposition in front of him. Apparently the war is costing £2 – 3 billion a day and they are running out of arms. Well, how much is the ongoing Syria war costing ? Why did the most successful economy in Africa, Libya, have to be bombed out of existence ? That and so much more is because our elites do not want an enlightened politically stable third world. It wants religious bigotry, friendly tyrants and an exodus of cheap labour migrants claiming to be refugees.
These people are short termists. They don’t care about wars, diseases and famine culling the masses who are deliberately divided and ruled by bulls-it about diversity and multi culture. In Ukraine, the elite are trying to draw the Russians into urban warfare where they can condemn them for war crimes. Ukraine have sited powerful weaponry in residential areas, including children’s playgrounds.
He has powerful western media, like the BBC, ready to give him the headlines’ to suck in more NATO and EU support. The reality of the human rights abusing puppet Ukraine Government has no mainstream air time. Such hypocrisy when we recall the Assange revelations and his resulting incarceration. R. J Cook
Russian politicians break ranks with Kremlin to condemn invasion
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is proving so unpopular that several Russian MPs are withdrawing their support for the Kremlin.
The State Duma, the lower house of Russian parliament, last week voted to recognise the independence of eastern Ukraine’s separatist regions. President Vladimir Putin signed the motion into law on Monday.
Two days later Russia’s upper house of parliament gave the green light to sending Russian troops “abroad”. However, it was not clear until Thursday morning that Mr Putin had ordered a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Russian anti-war protests could trigger Putin’s ‘downfall’: ‘No regard for his people!’
Chris Byfield 4
As the Russian military bared down on Kyiv brave protesters in over 50 Russian cities took to the streets in opposition to Putin’s war. More than 1,800 people were arrested at rallies across the country on Thursday night. Meanwhile in Putin’s home city of St Petersburg a major protest saw hundreds of young Russians chanting against the President despite Russia’s Investigative Committee having issued a warning reminding the public that protest is illegal.
Серьезный протест в Великобритании запрещен законом
Мне так надоела вся эта пропаганда западных СМИ. Мне кажется, бессмысленно комментировать это на английском языке. Украина, западный варварский марионеточный режим и НАТО, вызвали этот кошмар. Англо-американскую элиту интересуют только власть, деньги и ложь.
Цель учений – остановить Nordstream 2 и добиться смены режима в России, вернуть все в старые добрые коррумпированные ельцинские времена. Чиа будет следующим.
Какая шутка, что протесты в России незаконны. Посмотрите, как обращаются с членами парламента Великобритании, критикующими НАТО. Посмотрите, что случилось с протестующими Ковида в Канаде. Насколько глупы эти люди?
Меня так злит англо-американская пропаганда и то, как глупо Европа на нее ведется. Россия должна выслать всех дипломатов Великобритании и заблокировать Всемирную службу Би-Би-Си, если они прикоснутся к RT. Британская и американская демократия – это правительство для богатых, созданное богатыми. Европа немногим лучше. Посмотрите на “Желтые жилеты” и мандаты Ковида.

Mike Pompeo dodges questions on his praise for Putin as ‘talented’ and ‘savvy’
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday exhibited no desire to revisit the glowing opinion of Russian president Vladimir Putin he’d shared across multiple news appearances this year after Mr Putin ordered an unprovoked invasion of Ukraine on Wednesday.
Putin has gambled everything on Ukraine, and now his political survival in Russia is in doubt
War transforms the political landscape in radical and unexpected ways. By invading Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin has made an unforced error of historic proportions that will put his own survival as Russian leader in doubt if and when Russians begin to understand that he has plunged them and their country into an unwinnable war.
Moscow is seeking a decisive victory with the overthrow of the Ukrainian government and the surrender of its army. “What we’re talking about is preventing Nazis and those who push methods of genocide to rule in this country,” said foreign minister Sergei Lavrov yesterday. “Right now, the regime that is located in Kyiv is under two mechanisms of external control: first, the West, led by the United States, and secondly, neo-Nazis.”
China abstains from UN Security Council resolution condemning Russian invasion

Russia vetoed the draft resolution while India and the United Arab Emirates also abstained from the vote on the US-drafted text.
The remaining 11 council members voted in favour.
China’s move is seen as a win for western countries who want to show Russia as being isolated internationally.
Vladimir Putin’s ‘Achilles heel’ exposed as Russia’s flawed invasion plan unravels
General Jack Keane, a retired US four-star general, has said that Vladimir Putin has “over-reached” with his invasion of Ukraine. General Keane said the Russian invasion plan was overly “complicated and ambitious” and would easily backfire on the Kremlin. The retired general told Fox News that underground resistance in Ukraine and a revolt at home in Russia could scupper President Putin’s plans.

What is SWIFT? Why being banned could be seriously painful for Russia and Vladimir Putin
Russia has broken international law by invading Ukraine – an act that’s drawn widespread condemnation from around the world. A series of sanctions have been aimed at Vladimir Putin, in hope of de-escalating tensions. Boris Johnson is reportedly pushing for Russia to now be ejected from SWIFT.
What is SWIFT?
SWIFT stands for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT).
It’s a high-security network that financial institutions use to transfer money across borders.
While SWIFT doesn’t actually work as a bank – it doesn’t hold or receive any money – it uses standardised codes for banks to process payments faster.

Ukraine: Germany and Italy have ‘disgraced themselves’ over Russia sanctions, Donald Tusk says
A former head of the European Council says Germany and Italy have “disgraced themselves” after blocking tough sanctions against Russia.© AP Donald Tusk
The EU hailed a 2am agreement on a “massive” package of measures in punishment for the Ukraine invasion, including a freeze on assets and a block on Russian banks’ access to European financial markets.
But there is an exemption for Moscow’s main source of revenue – energy exports – which means its banks will still enjoy lucrative revenues from gas and oil sales.
Comment This kind of sanctimonious moralising should have no place in modern politics, let alone on the subject of Russia responding to Ukraine and NATO’s provocation. If this attitude to Ukrain’e genocide in the Donbas is OK, then can the WOKE Liberals ( sic ) please shut up about Uyghur Muslims who are threat to China because of severe cultural differences. Europeans should have welcomed the back of Britain. Instead they are supposed to be open to Britain and the U.S joint leaders of power and wealth grabbing NATO ( NUKUS ). To cite shame on this issue is logically absurd but most revealing of the EU elite’s nasty controlling mentality.
Now we are supposed to feel sorry for a female Ukrainian journalist because she watched her home destroyed. That has been happening widely unreported in the Donbas, as part of Ukrainian genocide in violation of the Minsk Agreement, for the last 8 years. The clamp down on having the wrong opinion in fake democracy Britain is getting tighter. I already have a high police profile so don’t be surprised when this site disappears. R J Cook
‘You are all we have’: Ukrainian president’s message to troops as he accuses Europe of doing too little
Alexa Phillips, news reporter
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has told Ukrainian troops “you are all we have” as he accused European countries of not doing enough to stop the Russian invasion.© Sky News Screen Grab
He said the Russian attack in Ukraine was like a repeat of the Second World War and called on European citizens to protest to force their governments to act more quickly and forcefully.
Mr Zelenskyy said tougher sanctions need to be imposed on Moscow as his troops battled Russian forces closing in on the capital.
Comment Over 3000 people of the Donbas have been killed by Ukraine’s war on them. Here in the west it is going to become treason to speak truth to power. The EU is the bench mark of corruption to which Ukraine’s allegedly democratically elected government aspires. This government has reneged on the Minsk agreement with full connivance of the Anglo U.S led imperialistic NATO ( NUKUS ).
I am not surprised that the elite dominated money mad mainstream media here is reporting fake news, conniving in shutting RT so we are overwhelmed by BBC drivel. I am not surprised they are offering opinions on Putin’s mental health, because I know from experience that when I challenged them they sent a psychiatrist, a medical student and burly mental health nurse to section me.
Now Trump joins the list of those vilified from showing understanding of Putin, while 11 so called Labour U.K MPs withdraw from condemning NATO to save their political skins. The 1939 mentality hasn’t changed. As my old Portsmouth landlady used to say ‘Breeding will out.’
UK says it will work ‘all day’ to persuade Europe to cut Russia off from Swift

The UK defence secretary, Ben Wallace, ended the pretence that Britain was not at odds with its fellow European leaders over the issue. He said there was still time for Russia to be excluded, and the foreign secretary, Liz Truss, said: “The UK is working with allies to exclude Russia from the Swift financial system.”
Comment These are two very unpleasant patronising and arrogant people. The U.K elite’s reasons for Brexit are ever clearer. Their alliance with the U.S Industrial Military Complex and Washington swamp is now totally unfettered and even more dangerous. When it comes to what matters, diversity is a con. These horrible people come in all skin colours and genders. It is what is underneath it all , class and real power – not feminist power to destroy working men – that counts. R J Cook

LONDON (Reuters) -Russia intends to take the whole of Ukraine but the Russian army failed to deliver it main objectives on the first day of President Vladimir Putin’s invasion, British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said on Friday.
Russia launched its invasion by land, air and sea on Thursday following a declaration of war by Putin, in the biggest attack on a European state since World War Two.

But some workers were stationed there to maintain the facility, which was taken by invading Russian forces after President Vladimir Putin launched his assault on Ukraine in the early hours of Thursday.
Voices: Putin has crossed a line – the west must show an iron fist
Liam Byrne MP
It has often been said that we live in an era of change. But Putin’s putsch into Ukraine now makes clear we’re witness to a change of era. And in this new era, our first task is to ensure President Putin’s tactical advance ends quickly in strategic defeat. The brutal truth is that our strategy of deterrence, waving rather vague threats of sanctions, has now failed. The velvet glove has been pushed aside and we need to offer Putin the proverbial iron fist.© EPA

If Putin tries to install a Russian puppet government in Ukraine, let him learn the cost of guerilla war
We’re in the dark times now. That clenched, anxious knot in your stomach as you read the news, the gnawing intensity of living through history, of seeing it happen in front of you, with no idea at all what will happen next.
World War Three has never been more likely than it is this morning. That sounds hysterical, but it is a mere statement of fact. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, we’ve experienced only regional or country-specific conflagrations. Now we’re seeing the great military power-block structure rear into view against a nuclear enemy. Nato versus Russia. The sentence we never want to write, suddenly pertinent again.
Vladimir Putin’s behaviour this week showed a man who was not fully in control of his emotions, who is fired up by personal destiny, driven insane by a degenerate sense of invented historic mission. The costs don’t matter to him anymore. Either through madness or overconfidence, he simply does not recognise the disadvantages of his position.
Ready to die – by Roberta Jane Cook
Comment I fear that Vladimir Putin is fully aware of his dangerous position. The U.S.S.R used to be openly ridiculed for calling dissenters nuts – and locking away dissidents like Solzhenitsyn. The British are more subtle, and thus more dangerous.
Lenin was an idealist who was conveniently mortally wounded and replaced by a Georgian thug. Communism was never meant to work.
The world has moved on but the west corrupted Glasnost and gave us Anglo U.S lackey Yeltsin. Thus came the oligarchs and asset strippers. In the background massive Third World overpopulation needed somewhere to go. The United States and Western Europe were simply not big enough. A bogus climate change movement was started by the elite along with blaming the masses for slavery and racism. Ukraine fits in here for the multi cultural dumbed down overflow with NATO ( NUKUS ) the New World Order Police Force.
Warning of a puppet government is pathetic because the Western Elite installed one under the comedian Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy.
Talking of guerrilla warfare is ludicrous considering the west has been backing Zelenskyy for the last 8 years without counting the dead women , children and men. As for bloodshed, take a look at the Middle East. Take a look at gas prices which Biden has told people they must live with along with more expensive oil pushing up the cost of living – impoverishing the masses while enriching a minority. Look at the profits of BAE systems as just one example of the profits of this sanctimonious money making killing machine. Look at Saudi Arabia and the wider carnage of western back murder in the Middle East. The western elite has no morality beyond sexual hypocrisy and politically correct rainbow hogwash. I was expected to shut up and join the LGBTQI coral.
The Anglo Americans have always been brilliant at manipulating the masses with escapism into religion as prelude to death. Western ruling elites are vile hypocrites. I have been on the receiving end of the vile British police state for the last 14 years who insisted I take anti psychotic drugs as a condition of my sex change and ongoing medication. I have recently been told in writing that I cannot see secret health and police records on me without a court order.
That is the west for you. My vital medication has been cut off because I won’t accept being diagnosed bi polar schizophrenic deluded and paranoid – a diagnosis made in less than one hour by a psychiatrist turning up at my house with a burly black male nurse and medical student at 12.30 , threatening me with the madhouse, after I had done a long truck driving shift, having started at midnight.
Meanwhile my youngest son has been sectioned to the same mental hospital. Strenuous efforts are now again being made to jail or section me. That is the reality of western style democracy. I would certainly defect to Russia given the chance, so would my eldest son. I don’t mind cold weather and do not need luxuries to deal with the truth. I have worked on freezing cold construction sites and spent 12 years truck driving in all weathers, not to mention the harsh training of my athletics and cross country running days. I am also a pretty well accomplished academic. As Karl Marx wrote, ‘Physical pain is the only relief to mental pain.’
Marx’s motto was ‘Destruem Edificabo ‘ ( look it up ). I grew up in harsh poverty in the immediate post war period. I am certainly ready to die and have no fear of God. R J Cook

DEL RIO, Texas — The remote border town that made headlines last September as tens of thousands of Haitians crossed into it from Mexico has become the top destination for migrants and the epicenter of the border crisis.
Last month, 30,773 people were encountered illegally crossing the border in Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector, which spans 240 miles of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico boundary. For each of the town of Del Rio’s 34,673 residents, one noncitizen was taken into custody.00:07/00:315
‘Complex threats’ facing the world’s biggest superpowers look set to boost BAE Systems as aerospace group’s profits jump to £2.3bn
Jane Denton For Thisismoney
BAE Systems sales rose by £448million to £21.3billion over the past year, as escalating global tensions helped bolster the group’s operating profit by 21 per cent to £2.3billion.
The weapons maker and aerospace group said the ‘uncertain global environment’ and ‘complex threats’ that currently face the world’s major powers would boost its business this year.

Heightened tensions between Australia and China led to the former accounting for 4 per cent of BAE’s 2021 sales, which were also bolstered by strong demand for its ‘electronic warfare systems’ and growing ‘cyber and intelligence’ budgets
Ukraine crisis: Putin and the kleptocrats fear democracy in Russia, not sanctions abroad
As Western politicians argue over how and when to sanction Russian kleptocrats – decades after they began burying their billions in the London and New York property markets – are they losing sight of something?
Russia’s leaders are good at weathering financial penalties. Their overseas assets are held at arms’ length by family members or camouflaged by layers of shell companies. Putin and his stooges won’t go short of Krug and caviar any time soon. Russia’s foreign reserves are bolstered. China might provide some respite from exports controls and even help mitigate some harm from being kicked out of international payment systems.

Western Hypocracy Beyond Bounds – a comment by Roberta Jane Cook
I made a lot of money and paid for a substantial home and land in toffee nosed Buckinghamshire. Starting in poverty with my ex solider truck driving father, who used to cycle to the brickyard in all weathers, dead by the age of 41, it was a difficult start. However, hard work, physical and intellectual never bothered me.
To help my mother, I did two paper rounds in the morning before school then worked on the farm at night. I also found time to train for my athletic club, was a County athlete and running 100 miles a week at university, which I also represented abroad. I went to a snobbish elite university , working all of my 20 week vacations on major construction and road building sites – dangerous but well paid jobs.
In so doing , I bought my mother a house when I was 20. All the time, I made notes , read widely, including Russian literature, with the intention of becoming a published author. When corrupt police set out to ruin me professionally in 2008, I turned to old friends who helped me return full time to what had been my truck driving hobby job.
So here I am now, in what I expect to be the final year of my life, aged near 72,, blocked from sex change surgery for the last 3 years, by the British police state because I won’t accept being psychotic and needing powerful drugs. I am supposed to accept being a deluded bi polar paranoid schizophrenic.
My gender reassignment medication has also been stopped and I am told, in writing, that I can only see the secret records if I obtain a court order. That is British democracy , now pompously pontificating about Russian bloodshed and destruction. The fact that Russia has been forced into Ukraine after 8 years of Donbas Russians being bombed by NAATO backed forces, is not supposed to be known – which is why they want to shut down RT.
As much as my womanhood may be important to me, it is not more important than being a seeker after truth, as an old MI6 friend once told me.
As a youngster I saw nothing sinister being ordered to sign the Official Secrets Act for Government Service. My late mother was proud to have done the same during her work in 1940. I was brought up to believe in my country.
Now with so much rank hypocrisy I have totally lost faith. It is an established truth that the United States and Britain attacked their old friend Hussein in the first Gulf War because he broke OPEC price fixing. They needed an oil crisis to maintain ruling elite profits. It is a matter of fact that they lied to cause a second totally illegal Gulf War, setting fire to the Middle East, feeding the war in Syria to this day, as well as carnage in Yemen.
Afghanistan was something else, an invasion justified on the basis of Islamic ‘women’s lib.’ How absurd is that ? It is a matter of fact that the Anglo U.S ruling elite do not want Nordstream 2 on tap unless they get a friendly regime change in Russia. It is a matter of fact that Russia has to look further east to China for survival unless it wants the moron multi culture taking over.
It is a matter of fact that Glasnost was followed by the Anglo U.S fermented Yeltsin coup and several more manoeuvres in the Balkans. I recall Yugoslavia as a beautiful and peaceful place. Not after the Anglo U.S Hypocracy arrived. One could go on. The western elite are hideous, typified by the languid pleasure bent elite of Prince Andrew’s stable.
Canada unfreezes bank accounts linked to ‘Freedom Convoy’
Canadian authorities have lifted freezes on hundreds of bank accounts belonging to “Freedom Convoy” protesters and their supporters eight days after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave his government the go-ahead to target demonstrators who had camped out in the country’s capital for three weeks.
Authorities had also seized the bank accounts associated with protest organizers as well as any business tied to the blockade of truckers upset over COVID-19 restrictions.
Isabelle Jacques, as assistant deputy minister in Canada’s Department of Finance, told a House of Commons committee on Tuesday that the banks had begun unlocking accounts.
“The vast majority of assets are in the process of being unfrozen,” she said.
Comment As someone with a criminal record for challenging Britain’s corrupt police state, I know how oppressive the Western Style Democracies are. Police now are not primarily about crime solving. They are more likely to commit crimes against persons and are effectively licensed to do so. The Anglo U.S elite lead the world in these matters. Trudeau made money from Covid vaccines. A lot of money. R J Cook
Sanctions on Russia over Ukraine will hurt Europe too, but Vladimir Putin has had years to prepare for this
It is difficult right now to see quite how the next few weeks will pan out in the Ukraine crisis, certainly at a military and diplomatic level, but also in terms of economics and finance. We can’t be sure what action Russian President Vladimir Putin will take next, but there are some things that can be said with confidence, and the best starting point is the effectiveness of economic and financial sanctions on Russia.
I am writing from Washington DC and the first point to make is that these actions are being led by America. The policy of a measured response, starting with the limited actions already taken but ramping up further if necessary, is President Joe Biden’s. Europe and the UK are essentially falling in line with US policy. The US administration expects Russia to press on with an invasion, and if that proves right, tougher measures will come.

Not In My Name by Roberta Jane Cook.
I took my name off the electoral register many years ago. Britain is a corrupt country which is why I have had the police on my back for the last 14 years. Apparently I have been a mentally ill violent paranoid bi polar schizophrenic alcoholic, according to police sources, since 1988. No need for evidence, Crown Court was told last Monday.
I was elected to my local council in 1987, rising to become Chairman of the Planning Committee and Chairman of the North Bucks Town and Parish Council Consortium with a responsibility to report my expertise to the Richardson Milton Keynes Expansion Inquiry.
My book ‘More 0f Milton Keynes Building On The Vision’ ( Still in Print ) was published in 2003. I was one of the new city’s original construction workers and regarded as an expert on the subject.
I was chosen for selection as a prospective Liberal Democrat MP in 1997 , having abandoned the Conservative Party when Margaret Thatcher turned the Conservatives into a National Socialist Party – as Blair went on to do the same with Labour and Sir Kier Starmer has continued to do following a brief interval of hope under Jeremy Corbyn.
I dropped out of politics when I realised that being an MP was all about image over substance, presentation coming before truth. Although I realised that I was transsexual, I had no time for identity politics. It is only hate crime against myself, including parties I can’t mention as well as police at senior level, that has made me aware that hate crime originates at high level, but the real issue is the cancer of corruption before gender – or race. Institutional corruption is the British norm , but highly sophisticated in this country.
Hence we have the vile profit driven British elite attitude supported by the moronic masses, to Russia’s efforts to protect its ethnic cousins in the Donbas region of an area now labelled the nation of Ukraine. Ukraine was never a country. it was a convenience. Crimea was never a part of this convenience. It is a territory ruled by a a former comedian and his henchman. His government is the result of a western coup and a puppet regime.
This is of no concern to the Anglo U.S NUKUS elite ( aka NATO ). NORDSTREAM 2 was a NUKUS target from the moment the U.K and U.S fake democrat wealthy elite got Biden elected. They want Eastern Europe and Russia opened up to the Third World and Islamic surplus population and anyone who argues is a racist. Their attitude and intent makes a mockery of pretence to concern for climate change. Prince Andrew’s shamless hedonism is symbolic of their mindset. In the words of the old Music Hall song ‘It’s the rich what gets the pleasure, it’s the poor what gets the blame.’
Britain’s elite made the 1914 Balkan crisis a World War. I lectured on that subject at Aylesbury College in the early 1980s. My interpretation of events led moronic young students to complain because they had been brought up on British bullshit. Germany’s working people were blamed for that first world war, caused by three of Queen Victoria’s nephews and their political parasite governments. Young white men were sent to kill one another for these vile people whose descendants still wield power, with all their lackeys.
So now we see the great nation of Germany manipulated again by these parasites into some idiotic sabre rattling over the worthless Ukrainian fascist government who have been waging genocide war against the Donbas people for the last 8 years because they will not accept the Minsk agreement. The hypocritical world of top flight professional politics sickens me. Here in Britain we have a puffed up retired British army officer , Ben Wallace as War Minister, posturing about fighting a war against Russia.
I had a brief encounter with this kind of public school officer class twit in the early 1970s when I offered myself up for a commission in the Royal Navy. Ghastly people, but I had been deluded by all that early post war jingoism. I actually thought this country worth dying for. Now aged nearly 72, I am just dying to get out of it and off the planet. I will no doubt be long gone within the next 8 years.
The only reason I hang on is out of concern for my eldest son and the other son who has been put in the madhouse by the State – a restraining order prevents me from saying more on that subject because I too am facing the madhouse or serious jail time. My suicide plan is in place. It won’t fail next time. That is life in the ridiculously named British Democracy – a nasty little dictatorship that still aspires to rule the world.

The EU is ready to launch a second set of sanctions against Russia if its troops move beyond Ukraine separatist regions, said Valdis Dombrovskis, the European Commission’s executive vice-president.
“If there is further Russian aggression and further incursion into Ukraine territory we are willing to step up our response also in terms of sanctions,” Dombrovskis told Reuters.
Nord Stream 2: Russia tells Europe ‘welcome to brave new world’ of soaring gas prices after pipeline sanctions
A Russian government official has warned that Europeans could now face sky-high prices for gas after Germany announced that the certification of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline would be suspended.
“Welcome to the brave new world where Europeans are very soon going to pay €2.000 for 1.000 cubic meters of natural gas,” Dmitry Medvedev, who was Russia’s president between 2008 and 2012 and is now deputy chair of the security council of the Russian Federation, wrote on Twitter.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz took a strong stance against Moscow on Tuesday by announcing that the certification for Nord Stream 2, its pipeline to Germany, would be halted.
EU & US pressure member states ‘dragging heels’ Katya Adler warns Paris will bully Berlin
Katya Adler, the BBC’s Europe editor, said on Tuesday that as France holds the rotating EU presidency, Paris will take the lead on EU measures against Moscow. She tweeted: “Brussels insiders say there will be huge pressure from EU and US on any member state that might drag its heels.
“Focus today is also on diplomacy. And the what happens next. France holds the rotating EU presidency and is taking the lead.
“As for EU heavyweight Germany, the absence of Angela Merkel at the helm – well-versed in international crises – is noted privately in Brussels circles.”
The comment led some to suggest France would put pressure on Germany to back EU sanctions sparked by the escalating crisis in Ukraine. Any package would have to be endorsed unanimously by the EU’s 27 member states.
Comment Ordinary people of Europe and the United States will pay for sanctions against Russia , punishing them because they want to sink Nordstream 2 and ignore Ukraine’s human rights abuses in the Donbas. The masses won’t get it until it is too late. Anglo U.S ( NUKUS ) are the rabble rousers here because there is money in it for them. R J Cook.
Emmanuel Macron blasted for response to Russia-Ukraine ‘too obsessed’ with election
Putin stunned the world this week after officially recognising rebel-held territories in eastern Ukraine – Donetsk and Luhansk – as independent states. Shortly after his announcement, he ordered troops to “maintain peace” in the regions, the US responding by announcing financial sanctions against the rebel territories and warning that more were ready if necessary. It came just a day after Mr Macron orchestrated a potential summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden.
It was believed that the leaders had agreed in principle to communicate with each other amid escalating tensions.
The Élysée Palace put out a statement on Sunday evening following last-minute diplomatic efforts by the French president to try to dissuade Russia from invading Ukraine.
Comment This is more poison from the Daily Express on behalf of the Anglo U.S elite. Britain has no right to an opinion on Europe having left the EU. The EU should ignore Britain. The reasons for its war mongering agenda should be obvious. They are not about democracy.

What the western elite deserves.
Xi Jinping provides Putin lifeline with 30-year gas deal after Scholz cuts Nord Stream 2
Western powers imposed fresh sanctions on Russia as last night Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops into Donetsk and Luhansk in Ukraine after declaring them as independent entities. Russian military vehicles have been spotted rolling into the Ukrainian city of Donetsk shortly after Mr Putin ordered troops to conduct a “peacekeeping mission”, reports claim.
Amid the sanctions imposed by the US and UK, German chancellor Olaf Scholz ordered the withdrawal of a key document needed for certification of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
The pipeline would have sent Russian gas to Germany, bypassing Ukraine and Poland on the route through the Baltic Sea.
Comment Vladimir Putin had no option over Ukraine and was far more justified that the Anglo U.S ( NUKUS ) elite have been in illegal Middle Eastern wars or nose poking in Afghanistan. The fact that we are not supposed to speak out against elite western money grabbing lies tells us yet more about our fake democracies. ell oden Vladimir Putin. R J Cook
British Menace World Peace by Roberta Jane Cook
Let’s start at the beginning. When the Romans left Britain to defend a decadent failing empire, the Anglo Saxons moved in. These Germans, from whom I am descended, never numbered more than 20% of the population. Their Norman cousins arrived in 1066, so we have English, a mixture of German and French, both of which I speak because they are the same. The English elite & minions also speak HYPOCRISY and founded the political system called, by me, HYPOCRACY.
I have taught many subjects, including A level Political history to brainwashed zombies at Aylesbury College of Further Education in the early 1980s. British people do not know their own history because the elite does not want them to. Nowadays they are being fed drivel about BLM, race and gender, but no mention of class, wealth and real power.
I was also a maths teacher and should have stayed in the world of maths and physics which I loved as a schoolboy. My father’s exploitation and horrible death changed my life course. The maths of BLM and political correctness do not add up. Blaming white working class men for slavery and empire is sickening.
Britain’s elite and powerful black and Arab Imperial cronies caused two world wars. Japan, a World War one ally was dragged into World War Two by Britain’s elite treachery as they toadied to the United States equally corrupt offspring for help destroying their upstart inbred elite German rival. It had nothing to do with saving Jews , a people they still treat with contempt outside the banking world.
Britain made the 1914 Balkans conflict a world war because Germany was a perceived threat to Britain’s elite empire. Otherwise it was simply an issue between two first cousins, the idiot Tsar Nicholas II and the vainglorious posturing fool Kaiser Wilhelm II, both not so illustrious nephews of the fecund queen Victoria of Britain’s Empire. The British were prime movers in blaming Germany for World War One, even though they sold them Rolls Royce engines for the first Messerchmitt 109s. For the elite it has always been about trade and pap for the masses. They gave rise to Nazism because they feared Russian Communism.
So now we have more British blustering and drivel concerning old glories, with no care to miserable outcomes. Just more propaganda and lies. Britain’s elite and the slavish ignorant masses are beyond scientific explanation, except for the knowledge that they are still fundamentally frightened animals, as we have seen with the Covid neurosis. R J Cook
The UK has to punish Putin for Ukraine, but only Germany seems capable of stepping up
We know what he does. He floods the world with disinformation. He uses it to undermine Ukraine, pumping out lies through TV and social media, and he uses it to undermine British and American democracy.
We know what Vladimir Putin is, we know what he does and we know how to hurt him. The only question that remains is whether we’re prepared to do so.
If his character was ever in doubt, the Russian president revealed it in full yesterday, with a deranged speech in which he argued that Ukraine was never a country and announced what can only be described as an invasion through a supposed “peacekeeping” force into two break-away regions. He is an old-fashioned 19th Century imperialist who shows no respect for people’s democratic will or the integrity of their country.
Comment Why does the U.K have to punish Ukraine, for what and what exactly is the U.K ? Who is going to pay for the punishment ? Why was it O.K to do business with and accept money from Russian oligarchs in the wake of Yeltsin’s western backed coup ? R J Cook

‘That would be illegal!’ Furious Tory MP hits out at ‘Russia-linked donations’
The Labour Party recently accused the Tory Party of taking money from Russia linked donors. Analysis of Electoral Commission logs, conducted by the Labour Party, suggested donors with Russian business links have given £1.93 million to either the Conservative party or individual constituency associations since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister in July 2019.
But Mr Harper, MP for Forest of Dean, denied that the party had taken money from Russian donors, saying: “There haven’t been any Russian donations to the Conservative party because we don’t take money from foreign donors.
“That would be illegal.”
Comment It just gets funnier. R J Cook
Ukraine crisis: There’s method in Vladimir Putin’s madness after Russia tyrant announces invasion
Vladimir Putin has certainly upped the ante by announcing an invasion of rebel-held eastern Ukraine, in his illegal and wreckless campaign to overthrow the democratically elected government in Kyiv. Crucially, however, there is method in his madness.
Anyone who saw his bizarre and rambling performance on Monday, leading a “meeting” of his security council, sat 20 yards from his throne, would conclude that two decades in charge of a mafia state have left the Russian leader drunk on power and devoid of access to vital constructive criticism. Why else would he have televised a “three-hour conversation with himself”, as Ukraine’s ambassador to London put it.
Comment Absolute rubbish. We live under a tyranny in the west, none more insidious than Britain’s . Democracy is an overused word to make us feel special. Our two party system where they are all agreed on key issues makes a joke of this con trick. Ukraine is no more a democracy either. It was basically a western backed coup and that is what they are trying to do in Russia. R J Cook
Germany stops Nord Stream 2 certification following Russia’s Ukraine escalation
“With regard to the latest developments, we need to reassess the situation also with regard to Nord Stream 2. It sounds very technocratic, but it is the necessary administrative step in order to stop certification of the pipeline,” Scholz said in Berlin on Tuesday.
Comment Germany was never going to be allowed to sign off on Nordstream 2 unless Russia cowered and accepted regime change. There has been a clear patter since 1990 and the first Gulf War. petrol prices are set t soar , prices will rocket an d the masses will pay for elite arrogance and greed. NATO has given the corrupt Ukrainian puppet government the tools for a bloodbath in Donbas. Putin has said that it is in tolerable. It is a pity that the Anglo American big noses do not do more to sort out their own countries, which are riddled with inequality, injustice and suffering.

Playing the gender card of war. Roberta Jane Cook
Now we are hearing from a current British parliamentary debate that Ukrainian women are dying on the front line fighting Russian invaders – according to British War Minister Ben Wallace.
It is the same trick they used to justify invading and destabilising the strategically important Afghanistan where Russia had been a perceived threat since 1980.
No doubt this site, which police watch daily , due to my former establishment connections, will be closed down as the propaganda war intensifies. British democracy wants me either in jail or the madhouse. This is the popular image of Russia , but Britain is so much more subtle, with a tiny elite enjoying hideous wealth and power. If Britain was a democracy it would be self evident, as it would be in Canada where Trudeau has made significant profit for investments in Covid vaccine. The origins and role of Covid 19 are a stories in themselves. R J Cook

At an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, chaired by Russia, US Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, said “the consequences of Russia’s actions will be dire – across Ukraine, Europe and the globe”.
Comment It is interesting how Anglo U.S led invasions , with all the consequent instability they have caused, are never the subject of international condemnation. Iraq was justified in the first instance to cause an oil crisis because Hussein was breaking the OPEC cartel. The second Iraq war was based on New Labour’s Blair led government lies. That spread to Libya and Syria causing untold misery, and the migrant crisis.
As for Afghanistan, where was the sense in that. Long before that we had Kosovo. The western elite have made a fortune from all of this and want to devour the rest of the planet. Vladimir Putin’s regime is a major obstacle. Another point of interest is that the U.K wanted to leave Europe, by a tiny misinformed majority. So what business is it for this fractured corrupt excuse for a nation to get involved in Europe now. ?It is the same old hypocrisy , arrogance and skill at blaming others. R J Cook.
Boris calls emergency 6.30am meeting on Ukraine as UK to impose sanctions on Russia
Boris Johnson has called a 6.30am Cobra meeting on Tuesday to discuss the crisis in Ukraine.
The PM initiated the early morning emergency gathering after Vladimir Putin recognised two breakaway regions in eastern Ukraine as independent entities.
The Russian president has ordered forces to ‘maintain peace’ in Donetsk and Luhansk – but it is not immediately clear if troops will enter the country.
The UK is set to announce new sanctions on Russia tomorrow ‘in response to their breach of international law and attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity’, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said.
Emergency meeting called by UN Security Council over Ukraine crisis
By Associated Press Reporters
The UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Monday night after Russian President Vladimir Putin recognised the independence of separatist regions in eastern Ukraine and ordered Russian troops to “maintain the peace” there.
The announcement came as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told his nation “we are not afraid of anyone” in response to the Russian move.
The UN Security Council meeting is being organised at the request of Ukraine, the United States and six other countries.
Russia, which currently holds the rotating council presidency, has scheduled it for 9pm New York time (2.00am Tuesday GMT). It has not yet been determined if the meeting will be open or closed.
Putin’s key move showing Russia leader ‘feeling less strong than we think’ over Ukraine
Vladimir Putin has been fuelling fears of a new conflict in eastern Europe with his persistently hostile stance and refusal to remove thousands of soldiers from the border with Ukraine. US President Joe Biden agreed to a meeting in principle with Russia‘s leader as long as no invasion is launched this week. NYU History professor Ruth Ben-Ghiat said Putin agreeing to the summit would be tantamount to conceding he is not confident as expected in Russia’s chances to win in case of war.
Speaking to Sky News, Prof Ben-Ghiat said: “These autocrats, they don’t really negotiate.
Comment Above is typical Western media attitudes to the Ukraine question after the Donbas republic’s have experienced 8 years of shelling. The West have walked illegally all over the Middle East, Libya and Iraq. They ludicrously claim moral superiority.
For me this is a day for celebration. Western Capitalism is vile propagandist elite war mongering greed. Russia is a great nation. Communism failed because the west would not let it work. The Tsarist regime was vile. I am listening to the bumbling idiot Boris Johnson. Our political system is not democratic. Our people , especially the gender warriors, are jealous badly educated in fighters ruled over by a patronising elite.
Ukraine is an Anglo U.S colony . If I wasn’t so old, I would defect and live out my days in a small apartment , enjoying Vodka without being called an alcoholic because the state has to condemn me for past truth telling. The site was dormant yesterday because I was in Crown Court for my on line publications. I now face a lengthy jail sentence.
That is British democracy. Being able to express my transgender status is of no consequence, since the authorities have made clear that final surgery and continued hormone treatement is contingent on me taking powerful anti psychotic drugs. If i did that my life and work as a writer would be pointless. I would be condemning my son – my other son has been sectioned to a mental hospital , but he has been out of my hands for teh last 14 years. R J Cook

Let’s open up Ukraine to Third World & Islamic mass immigration, then on to Russia ,cheap labour, religious bigotry and elite profit. Come on world war 3, you know it makes sense. I worked with lots of Russians, and they taught me Russian. They are not my enemy. I read the great Russian literature in my teen years. I read Solzhenitsyn and of his struggle against Stalin, put in power by the western elite who assassinated Lenin. George Orwell summed it all up in Animal Farm‘ which I read when I was 15.

Bob Dylan Talkin World War III Blues March 10th 1964
One time ago crazy dream came to me
I dreamt I was walkin’ into World War Three
Went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda words he could say
Said, “It was a bad dream
I wouldn’t worry about it none, though
They were my own dreams, were only in your head”
I said, “Hold it Doc, a World War passed through my brain”
He said, “Nurse, get your pad, the boy’s insane”
He grabbed my arm, I said, “Ouch!”
As I landed on the psychiatric couch
Said, “Tell me about it”
Well, the whole thing started at three o’clock fast
It was all over by quarter past
I was down in the sewer with some little lover
When I peeked out from a manhole cover
Wondering who turned the lights on us
Well, I got up and I walked around
Up and down the lonesome town
I stood on, wondering which way to go
I lit a cigarette on a parking meter
And walked on down the road
It was a normal day
Well, I rung me fallout shelter bell
And I leaned my head and I gave a yell
“Give me a string bean, I’m a hungry man”
Shotgun fired and away I ran
I don’t blame them too much though, they didn’t know me
Down the corner by the hot dog stand I seen a man
I said, “Howdy, friend, I guess there’s just us two”
He screamed a bit and away he flew
Thought I was a Communist
Well, I spied me a girl before she could leave
I said, “Let’s go play Adam and Eve”
I took her by the hand and my heart was thumpin’
When she said, “Hey, man, you crazy or something?
You seen what happened last time they started”
Well, I seen me a Cadillac window uptown
There was nobody around
I got into the driver’s seat and I drove down 42nd street
In my Cadillac
Good car to drive after a war
Well, I remember seein’ some ad
So I turned on my Conelrad,but I didn’t pay the Con Ed bill
So the radio didn’t work so well,
Turned on my record player
It was Rock-A-Day Johnny singin’, “Tell your ma, tell your pa
Our loves are gonna grow ooh wah, ooh wah”
I was feelin’ kinda lonesome and blue, I needed somebody to talk to
So I called up the operator of time, just to hear a voice of some kind
“When you hear the beep, it will be three o’clock”
She said that for over an hour and I hung up
Well, the doctor interrupted me just about then
Sayin’, “Hey, I’ve been havin’ the same old dreams
But mine was a little different, you see
I dreamt the only person left after the war was me
I didn’t see you around”
Well, now time passed and now it seems
Everybody’s having them dreams
Everybody sees their self walkin’ around with no one else
Half the people can be part right all of the time and
Some of the people can be all right part of the time but
All the people can’t be all alright all of the time
I think Abraham Lincoln said that
“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours”, I said that

On Friday, he found such a reason to do so when he questioned whether Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a woman of colour, sneering with his ubiquitous scowl of white grievance that, “There is no place on Earth outside of American colleges and newsrooms where Sandy Cortez would be recognized as a quote, woman of color, because she’s not! She’s a rich, entitled white lady.” He continued by saying that the democratic socialist representative was “the pampered obnoxious ski bunny in the matching snowsuit, who tells you to pull up your mask, while you’re standing in the lift line at Jackson Hole. They’re all the same. It doesn’t matter what shade they are.”
Comment This kind of white liberalism is about virtue signalling by white liberal fakes. Basically they work for and so represent the wealthy elite. They have a role in atomising and guilting white people.
The phrase ‘women of colour’ is all about the double contingency of woman as underdog, coloured woman double underdog. Define ‘woman of colour.’ It used to mean ‘Afro Caribbean’ . Now it is any woman with a tan. If Latino women are coloured, then so are the Spanish and Portuguese from whom they derive. Religion is not a race either, but white liberals and BAME need it to be for power base.
Woman of colour means an even more oppressed group in need of liberation. It is all part of the elite class smokescreen. There are 3 basic races, Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid as climatic adaptations. Then there are mixed race.
The above piece is about confusing the issue with feminist politics. It should be treated with contempt for the nasty deliberately confusing mischief making that it is. Black Americans make up less than 15 % of the U.S population. If they can persuade Latino females they are black ,the white college so called liberal college folk can up the revolutionary numbers of ‘oppressed’ to 40%. That is if they can be persuaded to adopt the black lower class self defeating overpopulating gang & drug culture. R J Cook

Putin’s ‘ultimate goal’ exposed as he humiliates EU leaders with Ukraine threat
The Russian President has been pressing the West to approve the £8billion gas project agreed on in a deal he originally struck with former German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipeline will transit gas from Russia to Germany, bypassing Ukraine and Poland on the route. Olexandr Scherba, Chief Advisor to the CEO of Ukraine gas giant Naftogaz, told Express.co.uk that this deal is already “tearing apart” the EU.
Naked Truth by R J Cook
Comment Britain’s Express, with all its nice Upper Middle Class boys, girls and BAME reporters lead the U.K for crap anti Russian propaganda This is about blocking Nordsteam 2, shale gas and enriching Anglo U.S elites. NATO’S ( NUKUS ) latest overt threat to get closer to the Russian border, along with all the arms provided, plus attacks on the two breakaway states, with genocide obvious, should force Putin’s hand. He must invade on humanitarian grounds or see moronic mass migration in his direction to fill the space and destroy his country. There used to be a softer word, humanistic which suits protecting Ukraine’s Russians. That should be the grounds for invasion.
Humanitarianism is a pompous disingenuous western word hiding a covert regime change agenda. Language is important. Putin needs to listen carefully and get on with the job. The Anglo US led NUKUS is very dangerous and needs stopping. Russia and China need to get more involved in Africa and the Islamic world to stop the rot, if climate change is the issue because NUKUS AND AND THEIR Islamic ELITE CRONIES WILL LIE AND LIE, WITH MATTERS GETTING EVER WORSE UNTIL A NANO BOT SLUDGE COVERS THE PLANET, DEVOURING ALL, WITH THE ELITE HIDING DOWN BELOW IN THEIR WELL APPOINTED BUNKERS BUILDING SPACE SHIPS & PLANNING TRIPS TO THE STARS .

By Friday evening, at least 100 people had been arrested, mostly on mischief charges, and at least 21 vehicles had been towed, including all of those blocking one of the city’s major streets, as police exercised emergency powers that Trudeau invoked earlier this week.
Comment The fact remains that there is no evidence thta vaccines protect against Covid 19. There is no evidence that it kills the average person. There is evidence that the threat is exaggerated. There is evidence that the vaccines cause notable damage to immune systems. There are long term health issues. There is clear evidence of profiteering from the Covid scenario and that Trudeau has made serious profit as did philandering on the job disgraced former health U.K health Minister Matt Hancock.
There is evidence that the vested interests of the World Health Organisation, which sees mass migration as the solution to rampant religion driven Third World overpopulation, sees vaccines as creating safe spaces for the export of that ever abundant overpopulation.
It is utterly unsustainable but allegedly racist to point this out. BAME health workers in the U.K have refused the vaccine for religious and fertility reasons. So why should truckers Be victimised in Canada ? Trudeau has clearly abused his powers and should pay a high political price.

Russia-Ukraine crisis latest news: Joe Biden to host call with Nato allies as invasion fears grow
Sam Jones and Samantha Lock
US president to host transatlantic call on Friday as western leaders gather in Munich amid renewed claims of shelling in eastern Ukraine.07:54
Before I hand you over to my colleague, Sam Jones, here is a quick recap of where we stand.
- Ukrainian government forces and Russian-backed rebels in the country’s east have traded fresh accusations of shelling and other ceasefire violations.
- Ukraine’s ministry of defence says it has recorded 60 ceasefire violations by separatists in the Donbas region over the past 24 hours, with one soldier injured, according to its ministry of defence.

Joe Biden says risk of Russian invasion of Ukraine ‘very high’
Daniel Boffey in Brussels, Dan Sabbagh and Patrick Wintour
Joe Biden has said he believes Russia is on the brink of invading Ukraine as he joined Nato allies in warning that a blitz of shelling in the Donbas region may be an attempt to stage a pretext for an incursion.
Claims of attacks by Russian-backed separatists at several locations in Ukraine’s eastern territory, including at a kindergarten and a school, were said to bear the hallmarks of an attempt to incite conflict.
Comment Biden may look half witted and senile. That is a front. He is a very dangerous person fronting the Anglo U.S elite ( NUKUS ). His son has made a fortune from corrupt Fascist Ukraine. a western puppet government.
That government has been shelling Donbas, including schools since 2014. But we have to have the inevitable NATO NUKUS tear jerker about eastern Ukraine shelling Kindergartens ‘ it is alleged.’
NUKUS ar not going to back off. They want to block Nordstream 2 unless they get a friendly corrupt Yeltsin style regime, which was where Navalny was supposed to come into the picture. His fake poisoning was all part of the set up.
The west have welched on the Minsk agreement, feigning superior moral grounds. They have moved arms and men into Western Ukraine effectively making it a NATO/NUKUS state. Vladimir Putin really should respond, with China’s backing. Germany obtains around 34 % of its energy from Russia. Britain would like to see Germany suffer. Britain Brexited to be free to bully Europe. This is an appalling and immoral situation created by NATO. NUKUS. R J Cook

And now, it appears America is trying to beat the disinformation-dependent despot at his own psychological game.

How the Peace Movement Is Communism’s Greatest WeaponCOUNTERPUNCHTREVOR LOUDON
Comment The rich have never been richer, and Covid is still working well for them. They are terrified of communism and are thus trying t make their NATO ( NUKUS ) aggression toward Russia , look like freedom fighting for Ukraine. You are not supposed to know about Ukraine’s corruption and the plot to destroy Nordsteam 2.
The elite are too stupid to realise that they are provoking more poverty , war and communism if they keep on grinding people down. Absurd words about multi culture and freedom to express sexuality or religious differences , won’t help if the world goes on fire. That will simply bring out the animal in people.
However gifted individuals may be, we are all ultimately animals. The more intelligent among us may choose suicide, but the morons will go mad, doing the most unpleasant things to survive.

EU says it’s ready if Russia ‘weaponises’ gas supplies
European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen has insisted the bloc can cope if Russia decides to “weaponise” gas supplies amid tensions over Ukraine.
Comment Aristocratic von der Leyen does not care that this already involves higher prices for energy to industry and homes. Macron has no choice but to build more nuclear power stations regardless of risks. Environmentalists are living in fantasy land and need to be ignored. They are pro development for Third World countries where population is out of control. There is an unsustainable population surge in black Africa. Environmentalists only want to talk about what is wrong with white Europeans and Russia in particular.. R J Cook.
Putin goes nuclear! Russia ready to re-route ALL gas supplies from Europe – prices to soar
Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that Moscow is prepared to re-route supplies to other markets after fearing its energy companies would get targeted by Western sanctions. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly been warned of “massive” sanctions by both the EU and the US as he appears to be eyeing up an invasion of Ukraine. But the West has also been warned by experts that Russia could cut the EU’s gas, of which it supplies around 40 percent, as retaliation.
Comment What does Europe expect ? Britain has a vested interest in undermining German industry. The French didn’t call Britain Perfidious Albion for nothing. Hitler had friends in Britain, including the Queen’s Uncle, the former King Edward VIII. He understood the country’s ruthless Germanic and Norman inbred ruling class, which is why he thought it safe to turn away and attack Russia. Wars are never about ideals. They are about greed with populations forced to fight and fed on propaganda.
If Putin does not do something, the sanctimonious hypocritical war mongering greed and power mad NATO ( NUKUS ) will drive further and further into Russia. Russia is not perfect and doesn’t pretend to be. NUKUS should be judged by what they have done to Julian Assange , with lies and incarceration pushing him close to death for revealing war crimes. Further more, has anyone forgotten the damage and destruction NATO liars left behind in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria ?

Sun columnist calls on woke UK youths to be sent to the frontline in Ukraine – but it didn’t go down well
“Ukraine’s peril isn’t fodder for your culture war on people you decided are less equipped to handle war than you baselessly fantasize you are.”
Former ‘Loose Woman’ Jane Moore called on Generation Z youths to be sent to the frontline of the conflict in Ukraine in a bizarre Sun column today.
Swapping ‘Wife Swap’ for ‘Strife Swap’, she pitched the first episode as:
“A bunch of Gen Zs might be torn away from their war on free speech in our universities for a lesson in how so many young lads their age fought in the Second World War precisely so they could enjoy the freedom they have today.
“Perhaps a posting to the Ukrainian border with Russia might help them to understand the fear of facing down a deadly force that might kill you?

Bodycam Footage Shows DC Metro Police Striking Unconscious Trump Supporter Who Died on Jan. 6
By Joseph M. Hanneman February 10, 2022 Updated: February 12, 2022
Heavily redacted bodycam videos from the West Terrace tunnel on Jan. 6, 2021, provide a glimpse into conditions at the time Rosanne Boyland lay unconscious—including the sound of her being beaten with a large wooden stick by police.
Several bodycam videos obtained by The Epoch Times have much of the screen blurred out by authorities, but key audio and video clues back up witness statements and other videos previously released by the U.S. Department of Justice.
A 39-second video clip from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department shows the gloved hand of Officer Lila Morris picking up a long stick that was lying alongside an unconscious Rosanne Boyland, and then striking the prone woman multiple times. The sound of the stick making contact with Boyland’s body is clearly audible.

Trudeau’s latest power-crazed move
This isn’t a fight against a virus anymore, it’s a fight for freedom
The Canadian Federal government has invoked the Emergencies Act for the first time ever, for what we were told only recently is a “fringe minority” of protestors.
Trudeau’s language has been carefully nationalistic and his style contained while discussing the protestors. He repeatedly makes appeals for the “safety” of all Canadians. His case sounds reasonable:
“Individuals are trying to blockade our economy, our democracy, and our fellow citizens’ daily lives,” he said. “It has to stop.”
But the pursuit of safety can become a danger when it leads an alarmed populace to acquiesce to increasingly strong-arm government.
The language used by Trudeau also subverts ideas that would typically appeal to liberals. He has declared the protestors to be “anti-vaxxers”, “racist” and “misogynist”. They are bad people, and therefore we should stand against them.
Unfortunately for Trudeau – although fortunately for the reputations of the freedom convoy truckers – the cat was out of the bag when we saw footage of protestors of all ethnicities, peacefully singing and dancing in the streets. Even Joël Lightbound, a member of Trudeau’s same party, has accused the prime minister of trying “to divide and to stigmatise” the unvaccinated.
I suspect Trudeau may even have welcomed a little violence to justify a strong dispersement of this protest, but it has remained remarkably peaceable.
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said that banks and financial institutions would be able to freeze the bank accounts of anyone linked with the protests without any need for a court order. The truckers’ insurance licenses can be revoked. The police will have new powers to fine and imprison protestors.
Freeland said they were broadening Canada’s “Terrorist Financing” rules to cover cryptocurrencies and crowdfunding platforms as part of the effort. Well, naturally. Imagine being able to bypass fiduciary totalitarianism – must put a stop to that!
This should be a huge wake up call to people. If western liberal democracies (in the case of Canada, I use this term more lightly than I would like at the moment) go down the route of programmable central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), governments will be able to swiftly switch off access to money, or specific products and services, if they do not like your behaviour. Here in the UK, the Treasury and the Bank of England are exploring a potential UK CBDC, and identity-based programmable money is under consideration. As I have already written, all that glitters is not gold. Add to this the subjective complexities of defining terrorism and the problem is self-evident.
Shutting down protest and blanket defunding a large group of protestors is a bad look for liberalism. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association said in a statement that the standard for invoking the Emergencies Act “has not been met”. The media will be dissecting whether this step was overreach for weeks to come. Those with a liberal heart know it is overreach now. If you support Trudeau’s action, you might as well support setting up a Chinese-style social credit system.
The battle lines are being redrawn. We are no longer engaged in a fight against a virus, but a fight for liberal values and against despotism.

Johnny Depp declared he’s “on the verge of a new life” as he received the Gold Medal of Merit In Serbia on Tuesday (15.02.22).© Bang Showbiz Johnny Depp is ‘on the verge of a new life’
The Hollywood actor was honoured by the President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic in recognition of his “outstanding merits in public and cultural activities, especially in the field of film art and the promotion of the Republic of Serbia in the world.”
Comment It is good news to see hope for Johnny’s new life. He is a brilliant entertainer and gifted guitarist. He overcame many obstacles and demons to achieve what he deserved. He did not deserve to be condemned on the word of a woman, whose natural acting skills, went unquestioned in court. This is because of the mantra that all women are victims and never lie.

Ottawa’s police chief ousted amid truck protest in Canada

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Ottawa’s police chief was ousted Tuesday amid criticism of his inaction against the trucker protests that have paralyzed Canada’s capital for over two weeks, while the number of blockades maintained by demonstrators at the U.S. border dropped to just one.© Provided by Associated Press A person walks among trucks as Wellington Street is lined with trucks once again after city officials negotiated to move some trucks towards Parliament and away from downtown residences, on the 18th day of a protest against COVID-19 measures that has grown into a broader anti-government protest, in Ottawa, on Monday, Feb. 14, 2022. (Justin Tang/The Canadian Press via AP)
The twin developments came a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act and threatened to take tough legal and financial measures to end the unrest in Ottawa and beyond by protesters decrying the country’s COVID-19 restrictions and Trudeau’s government.
Comment The police are expected to be political puppets. They are expected to put careers first. In the U.K the politicians get what they want. Any Chief Officer who steps out of line, like Sue Sim, gets the chop. The Ottawa Chief is a hero. Across the western world , police are being used as running dogs for an elite who have been grabbing ever more during Covid lockdown.
The Ottawa police chief refused to use violence. The police should not be politicised. Covid vaccines are dangerous. I had mine because I didn’t want to be prevented from going to a vital court case involving the U.K police and what I have written about them. I am saddened that one of the good guys has been driven out in Canada. Canada is a cold country. No jab will eradicate this bio engineered cold virus. Only natural immunity will do that. R J Cook

NATO faced with Moscow’s terrifying plot for seven-day nuclear war in unearthed documents
Russia claims it is pulling back some of its troops from near its shared border with Ukraine. The defence ministry said that large-scale drills continued but that some units were returning to their bases in a statement earlier today. It did not, however, set out how many are leaving, and it is not yet clear if it will de-escalate tensions.
More than 100,000 Russian troops had amassed at Ukraine’s border, but Moscow has consistently denied it is planning an attack.
Many have argued that President Vladimir Putin wants to re-establish Russia’s former power base and sphere of influence in the former Soviet States, of which Ukraine was a part.
Achtung Englander !
Comment One might ask what on earth exists in the NUKUS vaults. Both sides have nuclear plans , the west has no claim to moral superiority. The last two world wars were about elites, not the Jews or democracy. I used to believe all that garbage which is why I volunteered for the armed forces. I grew up on all the comic drivel, with lines like ‘Achtung Englander.‘ Here is a better word :scheiße
Our Man In Europe – AKA BONKERS BORIS.
Boris Johnson, Michael Gove et al had a hidden agenda for their dubious Brexit campaign. Idealists like Labour’s Kate Hoey would be disappointed by Machiavellian Boris’s delivery. Idiot as he may appear, he has the right background and contacts. Johnson is working to cause a serious energy crisis to guarantee massive profits for European energy conglomerates. Forget the drivel about Party Gate which simply proves Covid is a con.
However, his idiocy eventually reveals the truth. The Ukraine issue is about Nordstream 2 by passing NATO lapdog Ukraine. Boris sees a future economic relationship with the declining U.S war economy. He is not good on numbers and his nasal voice is most irritating, rather like Obama’s whistle end note to everything he ever said. I am a bitch and can’t help saying these things.
Who on earth writes the Boris speeches ? We know Johnson admitted using cocaine, but the hypodermic analogy regarding Nordstream 2 is grotesque. Already I have read today about the dangers of U.K becoming like Germany because of an ageing population. I wish. The U.K has already become an extension of Africa and the Middle East, with Islam as the cement.
Boris wants Germany to become like Britain. God help them. He lives in his fantasy Churchill time warp. Actually Churchill was a nasty old man believing in class and racial supremacy. He was an arrogant bombastic bloated , twit legend for Gallipoli and wanted to nuke the USSR. Ironically he did a lot less to win World War Two than the USSR.
If Hitler had not been a shell shocked lunatic veteran of World War One and Anglo French revenge had not unfairly punished Germany, then that war would never have happened. Idiots like Britain’s War Minister Ben Wallace talking about ‘ a whiff of Munich, haven’t a clue what they are talking about.
Boris Johnson has revealed that his real reasons for Brexit. Membership of the EU meant that Germany & France acted as a brake on Britain’s vile elite tendency to jump in on U.S interventionist polices, – even leading them as with Blair’s dodgy dossier. So now we have it. Wake up Germany and France. R J Cook.

North Korea’s nuclear site hit by series of earthquakes
Samuel Osborne, news reporter
North Korea’s nuclear test site has been struck by a series of small, natural earthquakes, South Korea has said.
Seoul said it highlights the area’s geological instability as Pyongyang hinted it could resume testing for the first time since 2017.
At least four earthquakes were monitored in the region in the past five days, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) in Seoul.
The latest was a 2.5 magnitude quake on Tuesday morning, which was centred around 36km (22 miles) from the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site. A pair of 2.3 magnitude earthquakes were reported in the area on Monday and another 3.1 magnitude quake was observed on Friday.
Former Russian spies sent into Ukraine to carry out ‘false flag’ operations as a pretext for Putin to invade
Former Russian spies have been sent into Ukraine as mercenaries to potentially carry out “false flag” operations that could be used as a pretext for Vladimir Putin to invade, Western security services believe.
Among those reportedly deployed in recent weeks was a former officer in the GRU military intelligence agency who also worked in the Wagner mercenary group.
The former officer was said to have gone to Donetsk, one of two regions in eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian separatists since 2014.
Comment With NUKUS ( AKA NATO ) ramping up the propaganda , Russia has every good reason to be concerned about security. The Western elite are not a benign force above dirty trucks. The latest peace offering of restoring the Minsk Agreement is followed by the small point that Ukraine won’t join NATO yet. With all the weapons, training personnel , and bombers , Ukraine is as good as a member of the aggressive NATO organisation. NATO makes war. Russia has to be ready to defend itself. The U.S didn’t like missiles on Cuba. The Anglo U.S combined elite don’t like Nordstream 2 unless they get a weak and cowardly Russian Government. Britain’s high profile role in the sabre rattling is fascinating. R J Cook

Whoopi Goldberg back on The View following ban over Holocaust comments
By Associated Press Reporter
Whoopi Goldberg returned to The View after a two-week suspension for remarks about the Holocaust, expressing surprise at some people who had reached out to her during her absence.
Goldberg had been criticised for comments on January 31 on the daytime talk show where she said the Holocaust was not about race, but rather about man’s inhumanity to others.
She apologised, but ABC News President Kim Godwin told her to sit out two weeks.
Comment Goldberg did not call the Holocaust man’s inhumanity to man, on that broadcast. I watched it. She used a most offensive phrase . She said it was not racism . It was just ‘one group of white people killing another group of white people.’ This at best, suggests Goldberg is a moron. In reality she has been given a double indemnity as a black woman.
Had a white man said this he would have been ruined. Renowned historian David Starky was sacked by Cambridge University for calling black youth culture, chav culture. He was called a racist and his career ended.
The BLM are the lead for presenting all whites as privileged oppressors. They should take a look at tribalism in Africa and face the fact that powerful blacks herded fellow blacks into stockades, waiting for the white man’s slave ships crewed by white slaves. Powerful blacks got rich on this. They passed on their wealth to descendants, and still behave like this in countries like the Congo, which is rich in vital Cobalt.
White liberal media folk are stoking up the worst racism since the 1950s and 60s. This time it is anti white with the inevitable backlash. Africa’s exporting of its critically expanding overpopulation is feeding racial tensions in Europe.
All the hard pressed whites have had enough because they pay the taxes, face higher costs of living and lower wages. Blacks have made it quite clear that whites are not wanted in countries like Zimbabwe and South Africa. The lower class whites face the abuse and the lecturing from white upper middle class overpaid self important moralising media folk and politicians.

Russia war: The 6 steps Britain should take to avoid war with Putin – Tory MP explains
MP Tom Tugendhat slammed the UK Government for its lack of constructive action over the disaster unfolding between Russia and Ukraine. The chair of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee took to Twitter today to outline Russia’s alleged plot to invade Ukraine and how the country manages to pull off its various operations – including comparing the superpower to Nazi Germany.
He said: “It all started with a conspiracy. A false flag operation designed to mislead and trigger a war.
“But the truth was clear – a mafia-like organisation had taken control of a once-great nation and provoked war in the narrow interest of its new elite.”
Mr Tugendhat is referring to the Gleiwitz Incident, which was a false flag attack performed by Nazi Germany in 1939 to justify the invasion of Poland.
Truss opens fire on Putin with direct threat – Russia warned ‘appalling’ death toll looms
“I urged Russia to desist from its brazen aggression towards Ukraine, withdraw its troops massing on the Ukrainian border and engage in meaningful talks based on the proposals put forward by Nato. Russia is self-evidently not under a security threat.”
The Foreign Secretary’s warning came after the Government told British citizens to leave Ukraine as soon as possible.
Comment The Anglo US ( NUKUS ) plot to undermine Nordstream 2 is being forgotten here. Brexit did not give the country back to its masses. They are divided and ruled by BLM, BAME, Terf feminists , the elite and their Covid measures. The elite has the country back and is in total harmony with the U.S deep state. As such Britain presents a major threat to Europe and peace. It is doubtful that Truss is up to this job in spite of her privileged white female background and Oxford University education. She is from the same class and department that brought us the second Iraq War and all the fall out. R J Cook
Beware of this deadly mix: oligarchic economics and racist, nationalist populism
The United States presents itself as the beacon of democracy in contrast to the autocracies of China and Russia. Yet American democracy is in danger of succumbing to the same sort of oligarchic economics and racist nationalism that thrive in both these powers.
After all, it wasn’t long ago that Donald Trump – who openly admired Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin – encouraged racist nationalism in America while delivering much of the US government into the hands of America’s super-rich.
Now state-level Republicans are busily suppressing votes of people of color and paving the way for a possible anti-democratic coup, while the national Republican party excuses the attack on the Capitol – calling it “legitimate political discourse” – and censors Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the only two congressional Republicans serving on the panel investigating that attack.
Comment Five super rich blacks own 55 % of African wealth. The continent is riven with war, disease and famine despite massive resources which the black elite monopolise and sell as they did with slaves. The Guardian which produced the above, does not want to know. It is a propaganda sheet for white liberal fakes. Its journalists are part of the comfortable elite, bashing lower class whites anywhere they can find them..
They haven’t said a word about defending Julian Assange. Why should whites be eternally blamed for the appalling state of Africa. Why dow white elites get angry and sneer when Russia and China involves itself in Africa ? Because the Anglo U.S elite like things just the way they are. Guardian journalists are a dictatorship combine in their own right.
You wouldn’t think that the U.S is actually governed by Democrats. It is all about how terrible it will be if Trump and the Republicans get power, The undemocratic democrats spent all of Trump’s term trying to have him impeached for any muck they could find. The Guardian were with him all the way.
Class is the big issue. As Trump told Woodward, ‘Power comes from FEAR ‘. That is what Covid was all about. Panic is on because ordinary Americans, and that does include whites, are being treated very badly. All Biden can offer is another war in the name of democracy and all the other bulls-it.

Target China, not Ukraine! Putin faces revolt from senior Russian generals over war plan
Vladimir Putin has moved more than 100,000 Russian troops near the Ukraine border, with US officials warning that Moscow could launch an invasion “any day”.

However, a former British ambassador to Russia has warned that an invasion of Ukraine could spell the end for President Putin.
Sir Roderic Lyne said that senior Russian generals were warning against the potential invasion, instead urging President Putin to focus efforts against China instead.

Voters in San Francisco will decide Tuesday whether to replace three of the city’s school board members after months of frustration with the slow pace of school reopenings and the board’s decision to focus on left-wing projects in the midst of the pandemic.
The recall will test the strength of a movement that has gained momentum in far less liberal parts of the country but that has not yet been put to the test anywhere as deeply blue as San Francisco.
It also comes at a time when temperatures on education are running high nationwide, with tensions that simmered during months of school closures boiling over on issues from mask mandates to curricula.
France chaos as violent protests erupt in Paris – armoured police vehicles seize weapons
Around 3,000 lorries and other vehicles including tractors have descended on Paris as part of what have been dubbed “freedom convoys”. The protesters have drawn inspiration from Canadian truckers and plan to enforce a blockade of France’s capital city. The demonstrators oppose France’s Covid pass, which requires people to show proof of their vaccination status to gain entry to public venues like restaurants and cafes.
Police fire tear gas as ‘Freedom Convoy’ protesting against COVID-19 curbs enters Paris
PARIS: French police fired tear gas at demonstrators on the Champs-Elysees avenue and other places in Paris on Saturday (Feb 12) after a “Freedom Convoy” protesting against COVID-19 restrictions made it into the capital.
Vehicles carrying protesters managed to get through police checkpoints in central Paris to snarl traffic around the Arc de Triomphe monument.
Paris bans Covid ‘freedom convoy’ descending on French capital as trucker protests flare around world
Paris last Thursday became the first city in the world to ban a “freedom convoy” threatening to bring road chaos as it protests against coronavirus restrictions.
Hundreds of motorists inspired by a similar demonstration in Canada are on their way to France’s capital from the southern city of Nice.
But on Thursday the Paris police prefecture issued a statement saying those involved in the “undeclared mobilisation” risk losing their liberty.
Anybody caught taking part in the freedom convoy risks two years in prison and fines equivalent to some £4,000, the statement says.
CNN analyst walks back call for ‘vigilante’ crackdown on Canada trucker blockade amid social media outrage

Juliette Kayyem, who served as assistant secretary of homeland security for intergovernmental affairs under President Barack Obama, condemned the demonstrations in a string of tweets on Thursday as the Ambassador Bridge, which links Ontario with Detroit, remained at a standstill for a fourth day.
Comment This sums up CNN. They are grotesque. Folk are supposed to take the vaccine like lemmings, after all the WHO leads a campaign because overpopulated BAME countries are at high risk of this and many other health issues. So let us accept being forced to accept a known dangerous vaccine, that damages our immune system and more. I have had the double jab. It made me very ill. I am at one with the truckers. This is the face of modern feminism too. Good women pull with the men.

Protesters at the busiest border crossing between the US and Canada remained despite new warnings to end the blockade that has disrupted the flow of goods between the two countries and forced the auto industry on both sides to roll back production.

EU in major rebellion over Putin – two countries break ranks and refuse to cut Russia ties
Hungary and Austria have reportedly been reluctant to slash ties with Mr Putin due to their economic dependence on the Kremlin. Hungarian President Viktor Orbán struck a 15-year natural gas supply deal with Russia’s state-controlled energy giant Gazprom back in September. Ukraine was outraged, with its Foreign Ministry calling the move a “purely political, economically unreasonable decision”.

Watch out Putin! Britain not joking as RAF teams up with US for major show of force
Alessandra Scotto di Santolo
The RAF announced the military partnership today saying “the strategic bombers, support equipment, and personnel from the 69th Bomber Squadron have arrived at RAF Fairford after a transatlantic flight from Minot Air Force Base, N.D, in the latest iteration of the regular Bomber Task Force Missions”.
In a statement released this morning, Air Vice-Marshal Robinson said: “The RAF has a long, proud history of working alongside the United States Air Force that continues to see shared training, exchange tours and close operational partnerships to this day.
Comment So in other words the RAF is an extension of the United States Air Force. Clearly these two countries ruling elites have joint interests in Ukraine and want to drag all of Europe, of which they are no part, into a growing energy crisis. This will either be followed by a coup against Vladimir Putin’s government and a puppet regime as corrupt as the rest of the west.
This assumes no action on China’s part because they know what is coming next and the NUKUS alliance wants them out of Africa. NUKUS prefers Africa to ship its surplus population into working class areas of Europe and the U.K with severe lectures to native opponents and punishments for racism if they object. This is essential to keep Africa backward, oppressed by black elites in partnership with the west who need the resources. Biden and Johnson are a Nuclear Laurel & Hardy show.
I am writing less than 40 miles from RAF Fairford and Brize Norton. Military aircraft are noticeable. I have seen military helicopters night flying without navigation lights. R J Cook
Reality NUKUS (AKA NATO) alliance Nuclear UK & U.S comes ever more into focus. Britain’s elite had a hidden agenda for Brexit and it wasn’t to help its masses or stop the mass immigration that NUKUS Middle Eastern Wars ,caused and wants to direct eastward for its new world order. R J Cook

British journalists receive death threats from Russia over Valieva controversy
Sean Ingle in Beijing
The journalists who broke the story of Russian skater Kamila Valieva’s positive drugs test on Wednesday say they have faced death threats, abuse, and warnings they should check their tea.
Comment The Guardian along with the rest of mainstream British media – and CNN- have been very hostile and prejudiced against this brilliant gifted 15 year old. It should be read as a sign of how nasty and desperately they want to attack and destroy Vladimir Putin’s government – and replace it with a HYPOCRACY ( Western Style Democracy ) like their own. There is no reason to trust them. British media is dominated by a certain class and gender. I suspect they are doing what too many journalists do in NUKOS world. They make it up.

Have I mentioned that the Ottawa police, currently employing snipers on buildings around the truckers’ convoy, have negotiated an exemption from any mandatory vaccinations? This is as they attack the protestors who are asking – among other things – not to be forced to be vaccinated?

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov describes Liz Truss talks as ‘speaking to a deaf person’ amid Ukraine tensions
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said UK diplomats came “unprepared” to Moscow and described talks with Foreign Secretary Liz Truss as like “speaking to a deaf person who listens but cannot hear.”
Mr Lavrov made the comments immediately after talks between the two leaders in which Ms Truss warned any Russian invasion of Ukraine would have “massive consequences”.

While stationed in Baghdad, soldiers nicknamed it “the Iraqi crud”.
For many, over-the-counter medication helped ease their breathing difficulties while on tour before they recovered on their return to the US.
But for Lauren Price, the crud never went away.
Within a few short months of returning from her 13-month deployment to Iraq in 2008, she could no longer manage the three-mile jogs she used to run every day.
In 2011, she was diagnosed with terminal constrictive bronchiolitis – a rare form of lung cancer caused by breathing in toxins – and she was medically retired from the Navy two years later.

PM tells Russia that NATO will ‘draw lines in the snow’ over Ukraine crisis
Greg Heffer, political reporter
Boris Johnson has issued a warning to Russia that NATO member states will “draw lines in the snow” over the Ukraine crisis.
The prime minister will fly to Belgium and Poland today as part of diplomatic efforts in the face of Russia’s build-up of thousands of troops on the border with its neighbour.
In Brussels, Mr Johnson will meet with NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg to discuss his recent offer to double the number of British troops on Europe’s borders with Russia, as well as deploy more UK jets and ships to the region.

Putin’s superyacht is spotted sailing towards Russia after ‘fleeing’
Vladimir Putin‘s superyacht has been spotted sailing towards Russia after ‘fleeing’ from a shipyard in Germany, sparking speculation that it was trying to avoid being impounded by tough sanctions that would be imposed if Moscow invaded Ukraine.
The Russian President’s yacht set sail from the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg on Monday and had arrived in the Russian enclave Kaliningrad by midday on Wednesday, according to the ship tracking website Marine Traffic.
‘The worst of Joe Biden will be over’: McConnell pitches voters on GOP Senate
What are voters going to get, beginning next year, if they elect a new Republican majority in the Senate this November?
“The first thing they’re going to get is, the worst of [President] Joe Biden will be over,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared in an interview this week with the Washington Examiner. “Progressive movement will be stopped.”
“I don’t think it means no progress is made with the country,” the Kentucky Republican added. “It means look for things in the center you can agree on and do those.”
The Republicans control 50 Senate seats, putting them one seat shy of the majority amid a favorable political environment that McConnell is confident will not shift much, if at all, in the nine months leading up to Election Day. Indeed, “favorable” might be inadequate to describe how good political conditions are for Republicans. Biden’s job approval rating has sunk to just under 40%, and the GOP leads generic congressional ballot polling by 4 percentage points.
