US Officials Say 100k Ukrainian Soldiers Died

Real numbers are starting to come out.

Russia has spent months pummeling the country with missiles, seeking not only to cause destruction but also deplete Ukraine’s air defense stocks. Ukrainian soldiers have described acute shortages of basic ammunition, including mortar rounds and artillery shells. And upwards of 100,000 Ukrainian forces have died in the year-long war, U.S. officials estimate, including the most experienced soldiers.

They're ready to wind this down, I think.
Otto Pureblood reshared this.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about three million people in the United States currently acquire antibiotic-resistant infections each year, causing over 35,000 deaths annually.

Overuse and misuse of antibiotics have contributed to the development of antibiotic resistance. This includes using antibiotics when they are not needed, such as for viral infections like the common cold, and failing to complete a full course of antibiotics as prescribed.

In addition, the use of antibiotics in livestock and agriculture can also contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

One of the most concerning antibiotic-resistant infections is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a type of bacteria that is resistant to many commonly used antibiotics.

MRSA infections can range from mild skin infections to life-threatening bloodstream infections and are especially common in health care settings.

Another example is carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), which is a group of bacteria that is resistant to some of the strongest antibiotics available.

“Early on, 40 or 50 years ago, as antibiotics started to be used and resistances accumulated, the pharmaceutical drug industry was able to discover, and/or create new antibiotics,” said Dr. William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine in the Department of Health Policy, and professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

“So we were able to ‘stay ahead’ of antibiotic resistance because we always had a new antibiotic that we could pull off the proverbial shelf and use,” he continued.

In those early days of drug development, the “easy” antibiotics were discovered, but we’re in a difficult situation now, and advances have slowed.

“So we can’t just research our way out of a problem by creating new antibiotics,” said Schaffner. “Therefore, our options for appropriate therapy become diminished.”

No end in sight.
#Antidepressants cause more antibiotic-resistance than antibiotics. #Sluts are killing those people.

Cruz Calling Out Big Tech

Absolutely we need to get to the bottom of this and sort the media out.

It's good to see that Cruz is still running with this issue:

Cruz sent four letters to the chief officers of TikTok, Meta, Twitter, and Google asking for information about their platforms’ algorithms.
“As you are well aware, social media companies rely on algorithms to not only moderate content, but also to surface personalized recommendations to users,” Cruz said.

He emphasized the ways these algorithms play a tangible role in politics, noting that “Recommendation systems play an increasingly ubiquitous role in selecting content for individual consumption, including by promoting some content, using product design elements to prominently display recommendations, and downranking or filtering disfavored content and accounts.”

Later in the letters, Cruz wrote, “In a world where seven out of ten Americans receive their political news from social media, the manner in which content is filtered through recommendation systems has an undeniable effect on what Americans see, think, and ultimately believe.”

“At their best,” Cruz added, “recommendations help users discover interesting or relevant content that they might not otherwise find on a platform.”
But at their worst, Cruz said, these algorithms can be a recipe for addiction and a pipeline to obscene or harmful material, or can be redirected for partisan ends.

“[R]ecommendation systems can also fuel platform addiction by feeding users an essentially infinite stream of content,” Cruz said, adding that these algorithms “can be especially dangerous when recommendations make it easier for vulnerable users, especially teenagers, to find objectively harmful content, such as content that promotes eating disorders and self-harm.”

All of this is true and I sincerely hope that he is invested in bringing big tech to heel.

... But we cannot count the number of times that we have been disappointed by politicians, can we ?

Tucker Calls Out the Media

Absolute hero tier:

Tucker: So when you, look at me and say, "Yeah, of course [the media] is part of the means of control." That's obvious to you because you're 28, but I just didn't see it at all -- at all. And I'm ashamed of that.

PODCAST HOST: Isn't that what the media tries to do though?

TUCKER CARLSON: It's their only purpose. They're not here to inform you! Really? Even on the big things that really matter like the economy and the war and Covid, things that really matter and will effect you, no. Their job is not to inform you, they're working for the small group of people who actually run the world. They're their servants, they're the Praetorian Guard. And we should treat them with maximum contempt because they have earned it.

US Spy Stabbed in U K

Honestly this detail makes it really interesting:

According to local residents interviewed by the Daily Mail, the woman and her attacker were inside the car, arguing, before the stabbing.

Hersh Speculates US Could Be Contemplating Entering the Conflict

He's rightfully concerned:

The US could get directly involved in the Ukraine conflict if it sees that Kiev’s forces are on the back foot, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh suggested on Tuesday.

Speaking at an event in Washington, DC hosted by the Committee for the Republic, a non-profit organization, Hersh noted that the US “did stupid things” during the Vietnam War, and suggested that Washington could “start doing something else” in the Ukraine conflict.

“I don’t know what happens if it goes bad for Ukraine, you have all this manpower,” he said, pointing out that the US has dispatched units of its 82nd and 101st elite airborne divisions close to the Ukrainian border, while “a lot of weapons and arms are coming” to Europe.

Even further interesting observations from Hersh:

According to Hersh, “the big deal” is that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to come to an agreement with the Ukrainian government. “The deal is demilitarize, and it’s going to be a no-go for us,” the journalist said, adding that the Russian leader “has not put in his main force yet” in the conflict.

Summing up the Ukraine conflict, Hersh argued that “we just may be kidding ourselves what’s going on there and what the results are going to be”.

He recalled the battle of Stalingrad during WWII, when Soviet troops suffered heavy losses but still emerged victorious. “Come on. Do we really want to mix up with those guys? I don’t think so,” the journalist added.

Russia likes to fight things at a slow pace and likes to be very careful with how it engages... It moves at its own speed.

I don't fully understand it myself, I have never pretended to be some expert in military afafirs. Let me further point out that I generally think it is the case that the experts in these affairs are often no better informed than any of us.

Nonetheless, we must be very weary of what our moron leaders will do in the West.

Stop Sinning, Start Winning

Oh brother...

“We are the f**king coolest private army in the world. We are recruiting fighters from all regions of Russia. Don’t w**ck off – go work for PMC Wagner,” the Russian-language ad says, before a phone number appears on screen.

LOL, what...

Asked about the salacious promo video, Wagner Group’s head Evgeny Prigozhin later confirmed that the ad was genuine.

“...advertising PMC Wagner on porn sites is a very good idea of ​​our marketers,” he said as cited by his press service. “I absolutely completely agree with them, and this advertisement says: ‘Go to fight in the Wagner PMC, stop j**king off.’ Who disagrees with this argument?”

We can at least agree that fighting for Wagner is cooler than wacking off.

2024 Campaign Already Turns Ugly

Hard to imagine the next election going off smoothly. Already the intra-party fighting is wild.

Trump may also have a point here:

“Governor DeSantis’s failure to declare his candidacy is no mere oversight; it is a coordinated effort specifically designed for him to accept, as unethical gifts, illegal campaign contributions and certain personal benefits that are necessarily intended to influence,” it declares, providing what it describes as evidence of these claims.

The gloves are really off:

A press release from Make American Great Again Inc. states that DeSantis should be held accountable, removed from office, and disqualified from “any future ballot in the State of Florida” if the commission finds these alleged violations to be legitimate.

“The Make America Great Again movement was birthed to stop career politicians who use public service to amass personal wealth and power,” the pro-Trump PAC said in a statement.

Second Gentleman Thinks You Killed His Ancestors for Questioning Trans Agenda

Oh, look, another Ashkenazi telling us all that our opinions are like murder to him if we question the trans agenda they are forcing on kids.

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff compared the “hate” at public school board meetings Wednesday to that which motivated the Holocaust, in which the Nazis exterminated six million Jews and millions of other people.

"Second gentleman," of course, is a hilarious title.

This hate is interconnected. You see it in the discourse in the country right now. You see it in the divide that we have, in the, just going to school [board] meeting[s] — you see that hate that is out there, we’ve got to step up, and speak out, and we’ve got to call out the cowards out there, people — as my wife would say, these “so-called leaders.”

By call out the cowards he is talking about enlisting conservatives to police all of the people on the rigt...

I thought that a psychotic and a psychopath were the same.

My bad.

Bailout Blues

Yeah, nothing about this is completely ridiculous.

Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), whose collapse last week has triggered a global banking crisis, donated over $73 million to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement — but found itself unable to pay depositors in a cash crunch.

Also cue the posts where they point out that the new board is primarily made up of women (though I am not 100% sure this is completely true).

Some other good factoids:

“As a point of reference, $82.9 billion is more than the GDP of 46 African countries. In 2022, the Ford Motor Company’s profits were $23 billion,” they also noted. The sum of $82.9 million includes “more than $123 million to the BLM parent organizations directly,” as well as much more to other organizations supporting BLM’s agenda.

The Search for the Drone

Naturally, #Russia is on the move and is not going to let the drone go to waste.

The U.S. Reaper drone that crashed in the Black Sea Tuesday will be recovered and studied, a Russian spy chief claims, as the two countries tousle over how exactly the unmanned aircraft was brought down.

An MQ-9 Reaper attack-reconnaissance drone crashed into the Black Sea on Tuesday morning, prompting the United States Air Force (USAF) to accuse Russia of having acted in an “environmentally unsound” manner by dumping aviation fuel onto the drone before striking its propeller, causing it to lose power and crash. Russia for their part denied having come into contact with the drone, stating it crashed by itself without their help.

It is actually quite unimportant what the truth of the matter is.

What will really be interesting is if the Russians recover it and hand it over to the Iranians for reverse engineering.

These guys are going to always exist on the right - there will always be some collection of people who cuck to these issues and they will be lauded as great examples of what you good conservatives are capable of doing.

They want people to think that Charlie Kirk is an extremist who barely is within the bounds of legally acceptable speech (lol) because they want carte blanche to jail people like us.

Really sad & epic history here:

In the 1860s the Peruvian slave raids began, as Peruvians were experiencing labor shortages and came to regard the Pacific as a vast source of free labor. Slavers raided islands as far away as Micronesia, but Rapa Nui was much closer and became a prime target.

In December 1862 eight Peruvian ships landed their crewmen and between bribery and outright violence they captured some 1,000 Rapanui, including the king, his son, and the ritual priests (one of the reasons for so many gaps in knowledge of the ancient ways). It has been estimated that 2,000 Rapanui were captured over a period of years. Those who survived to arrive in Peru were poorly treated, overworked, and exposed to diseases. Ninety percent of the Rapa Nui died within one or two years of capture.

Eventually the Bishop of Tahiti caused a public outcry and an embarrassed Peru rounded up the few survivors to return them. A shipload headed to Rapa Nui, but smallpox broke out en route and only 15 arrived at the island. They were put ashore. The resulting smallpox epidemic nearly wiped out the remaining population.

In the aftermath of the Peruvian slave deportations in the 1860s, Rapa Nui came under extensive outside influence from neighbouring Polynesian languages such as Tahitian. While the majority of the population that was taken to work as slaves in the Peruvian mines died of diseases and bad treatment in the 1860s, hundreds of other Islanders who left for Mangareva in the 1870s and 1880s to work as servants or labourers adopted the local form of Tahitian-Pidgin. Fischer argues that this pidgin became the basis for the modern Rapa Nui language when the surviving part of the Rapa Nui immigrants on Mangareva returned to their almost deserted home island.

LOL - these guys got a lot of sticks in the fire.

The Maison Brander owned a large sheep ranch on Easter Island for exporting wool. The ranch was managed by the power-hungry convicted murderer Jean-Baptiste Dutrou-Bornier, who had acquired additional land and appointed his Rapanui wife "Queen". This was the low point in the island's history; by 1872 its resident population had been reduced to 111.

In 1871 Alexander Jr had picked up rudimentary Rapanui from his hundreds of indentured Easter Island labourers at the Mahina coconut plantation on Tahiti. In 1877 Queen Pōmare IV died, and Alexander's sister became regent. John Brander also died that year, and Dutrou-Bornier was assassinated. Alexander set off for Easter Island to manage the sheep station in around October 1878 with twenty Tahitian workers and an unknown number of Rapanui whose indentures had expired and ran the island for a decade. He introduced the coconut, the first sizeable tree on the island since its deforestation two centuries earlier, apart from some fruit trees at the SSCC Catholic mission and Dutrou-Bornier's estate.

Salmon returned to Tahiti in 1883–1884 for business. Upon his return to Easter Island he bought up all remaining land apart from the SSCC mission at Hanga Roa. As owner of nearly all the island and sole source of employment, Salmon was de facto ruler.

As he was not a religious man, and a Jew, the priests did not like him, especially Hippolyte Roussel, who had been forced to leave the island in 1871 due to conflict with Dutrou-Bornier but who visited again in 1879. Bishop Jaussen in Tahiti appointed a Rapanui, Atamu te Kena, "king" to protect church interests from the Maison Brander, but Salmon ignored him and he never had any influence. However, Salmon was an honest man and sincerely interested in the welfare of the people, and the population started to recover. This was the era of the strong Tahitian influence on the Rapanui language and culture.

Of course the Wikipedia article talks about this guy as some humanitarian... He has the magick ethnicity modifier that excuses him from colonialism.

Of course - I link to an archived version of the Wiki.

The story is that the Russians did something wrong here... For engaging the $35 million dollar drone of a country that has invested billions in killing their soldiers during their war.

But lol... It does get better.

“To my knowledge, at this point in time, the Russians have not recovered that aircraft,” Gen Ryder said on Tuesday afternoon.

Also note that the Americans haven't recovered it either.

The protests were initially triggered by a bill ‘On the Transparency of Foreign Influence’, which was adopted by the Georgian parliament on its first reading. On Tuesday, 76 deputies voted in favor of adopting the bill and 13 deputies opposed it.

During the discussion stage, MPs from opposition parties said they would not allow the so-called “Russian law” to be considered in parliament. This resulted in a fight between opponents and supporters of the legislation. Deputies from the National Movement and Strategy Aghmashenebeli opposition parties were expelled from the chamber. Triggered by the situation, the latter’s leader Giorgi Vashadze called on all opponents of the bill to join the rally.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Georgian Interior Ministry reported that 50 law enforcement officers had been injured in clashes with protesters. Calls from the police to “stay within the bounds of the law” did not work.

... and they absolutely have threatened revolution:

Talk of such legislation first emerged last summer. Back then, several influential Western-funded NGOs immediately understood the existential nature of the possible measure. They announced the formation of a “temporary technical government” and presented the authorities with an ultimatum, threatening them with a “peaceful revolution” if they refused.

... and remember, these people are absolutely inundated with NGOs:

In a review of the Georgian civil sector published in 2020, the Asian Development Bank indicated that there is no special legislation on non-profit or non-governmental organizations in the country, although they are listed in the general register of companies, which as of the beginning of 2019 consisted of 12,800 organizations. At the same time, the vast majority of such organizations rely on foreign funding, according to the Georgian national statistics service Sakstat. As of spring 2022, there were 7,972 companies with foreign founders operating in the country. With a total population of 3.7 million, there are around 460 people per foreign NPO in Georgia. For comparison, as of November 2022, there were over 500 active “foreign agents” registered in the US, under FARA.

Airports are just wild in America - Tweet vid of a crazy fight right here:

This is all from the Washington Post who normally does everything that they can to back up the broken #Ukraine narrative:

DNIPROPETROVSK REGION, Ukraine — The quality of Ukraine’s military force, once considered a substantial advantage over Russia, has been degraded by a year of casualties that have taken many of the most experienced fighters off the battlefield, leading some Ukrainian officials to question Kyiv’s readiness to mount a much-anticipated spring offensive.

U.S. and European officials have estimated that as many as 120,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed or wounded since the start of Russia’s invasion early last year, compared with about 200,000 on the Russian side, which has a much larger military and roughly triple the population from which to draw conscripts. Ukraine keeps its running casualty numbers secret, even from its staunchest Western supporters.

I actually do not endorse the numbers that the US/EU officials are putting forward here, with a 1.2 to 2 ratio that favors the Ukrainians. I think that even when they are trying to be honest about painting the dismal picture, they will still lie to us. I would be surprised if the ratio is anywhere near favorable to the Ukrainians -- I would be ecstatic if I was a Hohol to hear that the ratio is even 1:1.

Statistics aside, an influx of inexperienced draftees, brought in to plug the losses, has changed the profile of the Ukrainian force, which is also suffering from basic shortages of ammunition, including artillery shells and mortar bombs, according to military personnel in the field.


“And there are only a few soldiers with combat experience,” Kupol added. “Unfortunately, they are all already dead or wounded.”

For some even tastier tears:

Such grim assessments have spread a palpable, if mostly unspoken, pessimism from the front lines to the corridors of power in Kyiv, the capital. An inability by Ukraine to execute a much-hyped counteroffensive would fuel new criticism that the United States and its European allies waited too long, until the force had already deteriorated, to deepen training programs and provide armored fighting vehicles, including Bradleys and Leopard battle tanks.

It's interesting to think that even the experts here posit that the great opportunity for the Ukraine was to win with a strong counteroffensive... But no such counteroffensvie could ever exist meaningfully against the Russians who predictably just brought to bear their far superior numbers.

From this point there are some funny statements in the article - for instance, the idea that Russia is experiencing WWI levels of casualties, but you still get glimpses of the real picture behind the paragraphs inserted to shore up the pro-Kiev narrative:

Ukraine has also faced an acute shortage of artillery shells, which Washington and its allies have scrambled to address, with discussions about how to shore up Ukrainian stocks dominating daily meetings on the war at the White House National Security Council. Washington’s efforts have kept Ukraine fighting, but use rates are very high, and scarcity persists.

“You’re on the front line,” Kupol said. “They’re coming toward you, and there’s nothing to shoot with.”

This is normally something that they would ever publish about Russia.

There might be real change on the horizon for the US policy towards the Ukraine - the state media apparatus is warming people up to the idea of cutting their losses and moving on.

The West is a joke - they are democratic societies that are supposed to be based on the marketplace of ideas...

Yet you cannot say a single thing that criticizes their sacred cows.

Ravier faces trial tomorrow in the criminal court of Marseilles on charges of incitement to discrimination, hatred, or violence. The case is based on a tweet, on January 11, 2022, in which Ravier reacted to the murder of a teen in Paris by a 62-year-old man from Senegal.

He tweeted “Theo, 18 years old, murdered yesterday by a Senegalese [migrant]… Immigration kills the youth of France.”

Pope Francis On Gender Ideology

Absolutely wonderful to see the Pope actually stand up for Christianity for once:

Pope Francis condemned transgender ideology in a recent interview, declaring that it is “one of the most dangerous ideological colonizations.”

The pontiff, who was born and raised in Argentina, spoke with the Argentine newspaper La Nacion last week, in advance of his 10th anniversary of assuming the papacy.

When asked if he “had been asked to write a document on the subject of gender,” Francis responded that while “no one” had requested that he create such a document, people always seek “clarifications” on the Catholic Church’s views on the matter.

The term "gender ideology" is often defined as a set of beliefs that characterizes gender as a social construct, not based on one's biological sex, and rejects the gender binary of male and female. It is often associated with the LGBT movement.

I think a lot of people have become confused with what the Catholic church really means because they tend to emphasize his statements when he is engaging with pastoral care.

“I always distinguish between what pastoral care is for people who have a different sexual orientation and what gender ideology is,” he said. “They are two different things. Gender ideology, at this time, is one of the most dangerous ideological colonizations.”

Great further clarification:

Francis said he views gender ideology as “dangerous,” lamenting that “it dilutes differences” between men and women. He described “the tension of differences” as “the richness of men and women and all of humanity” and stressed that “growing through the tension of differences” constitutes an important part of humanity.

A government led by a Jew.

Last Friday, Ukrainian officials told the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to vacate the 980-year-old Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra monastery complex in the embattled nation's capital, according to Reuters.

The denomination has been given until March 29 to obey the order. Although the UOC has historical ties to the Russian Orthodox Church, it severed its ties with the Moscow patriarchate last year in response to the Russian invasion.

In a statement, the Ukrainian culture ministry claimed that UOC "violated the terms of the agreement regarding the use of state property" but didn't say how. The UOC contends it is a victim of a political witch hunt.

There's no rule of law in the Ukraine - don't hold your breath waiting for them to provide the rationale.

That's the point, Jews get criticized for owning all the banks, media, big pharma, and now lots of food production, committing genocide against the Palestinians, but what most people don't realize is that 97% of Israel's population isn't Jewish, it's Ashkanazi, and virtually all of their leaders are Askhanazi, and it is the Ashkanazi's that seem to be universally psychopathic and have this insatiable greed for money and power.

I just don't believe in winning by violence since it is also the case that people are getting what they deserve from their own poor choices, and so it is a sort of fate by God...

반도체의 현황

많은 사람들은 챗GPT의 하드웨어를 궁금하는 것 같은데요...

GPU를 주력으로 생산하는 엔비디아는 챗GPT가 불러온 AI 붐에서 가장 큰 혜택을 입었기 때문이다. 챗 GPT 개발사인 오픈AI가 사용하는 수퍼컴퓨터에도 엔비디아의 1만달러짜리 GPU ‘A100′ 1만개가 사용된 것으로 알려져 있다. 챗GPT와 경쟁하는 기업들도 엔비디아의 GPU을 몇 개 썼는지 밝히는 것을 경쟁력으로 내세울 정도다. GPU는 원래 그래픽 처리를 위해 만들어진 반도체지만, AI에 필요한 병렬 연산에서 기존 CPU(중앙처리장치)보다 월등해 AI의 두뇌로 각광받고 있다.

여기서도 다른 재미있는 점은 지금 반도체 시장의 경쟁율 입니다:

엔비디아에 이어 GPU 시장 2위인 AMD는 지난해 2월 500억달러를 들여 미국 반도체 기업 자일링스를 인수했다. 자일링스는 용도에 따라 설계를 바꿀 수 있는 FPGA(프로그래머블 반도체) 분야의 세계 최고 기술을 갖춘 기업으로, AI반도체 개발에 최적화돼 있다는 평가를 받는다. 인텔도 2019년 말 이스라엘 AI 반도체 스타트업 하바나랩스를 20억달러에 인수한 후 지난해 5월엔 하바나랩스가 개발한 2세대 프로세서 ‘가우디2′를 출시했다. 시장조사업체 옴디아는 “대형 IT·반도체 기업들이 엔비디아에 AI반도체 시장을 잠식당하지 않기 위해 올해 최소 두 개 이상의 유망 AI 반도체 스타트업을 인수할 것”이라는 전망을 내놨다.

그래서 우리가 스타트업의 중용성이 여기서 확실히 보입니다. 대기업들은 계속 자기의 기술을 혁신하지 않으면 엄청 빠르게 시장의 점유율을 잃어버릴 수 있으니까 사내에 기술을 빨리 발달하지 못 하면 어쩔수없이 타사를 인수해야합니다.

이런 것 도박하는 것처럼 이죠. 만약에 성공하기가 힘들 수 있으니까 사내 R & D 많이 개발해야합니다.

Estamos en 2023 y su predicción de 2018 constata que no hay ciencia detrás de sus afirmaciones sino política del pánico.
#GretaThunberg The leader of the "human-induced climate change" activists deletes a 2018 tweet that said: "one of the most important climate scientists warns that climate change will extinguish humans from the face of the earth if we won't stop using fossil fuels in the next five years."
We are in 2023 and his prediction for 2018 confirms that there is no science behind his claims but rather the politics of panic.
Countries will realize that World War III has begun when missiles start raining down on their homeland

But by then it will be too late!

Since Joe Biden entered the White House, relations with both Russia and China have been steadily swirling and it looks like the military could soon be forced to fight both at the same time.

In Russia, regular television programs were interrupted by a message telling viewers to take their antiradiation pills and head for the nearest bomb shelters.

Russians were warned yesterday to take their anti-radioactive pills and rush to their nearest nuclear bomb shelters after hackers hacked into state television servers to broadcast chilling messages.

Was it hackers or a surprise drill? It was certainly an exercise before the reality of the nukes.

TV and radio programs in Moscow and the Sverdlovsk region, including the city of Ekaterinburg, were interrupted with an alarming message telling citizens that a missile attack had taken place on Russian soil.

The population was urged to take potassium iodide pills, wear gas masks to protect themselves and seek shelter.

But the truth is that we will all need anti-radiation pills if this madness does not end.

Both sides just keep escalating things. On Thursday, the Russians hit Ukrainian cities with their biggest missile attack in weeks.

Ukraine's armed forces chief said Russia fired 81 missiles into Ukrainian territory Thursday morning, including six supersonic "kinzhal" missiles that its air force cannot intercept.

Kiev's mayor Vitaly Klitschko said the capital experienced a series of explosions that damaged energy infrastructure and injured several civilians. In his most recent Telegram post, Klitschko said that due to extraordinary power cuts following the missile attack, 40 percent of the capital's consumers are now without heating.

Russia had not used Kinzhal supersonic missiles since the early weeks of the war.

These missiles are absolutely devastating because they can fly at speeds that are absolutely breathtaking.

The Kinzhal, unveiled by Russian President Vladimir Putin five years ago, can accelerate to Mach 4 - four times the speed of sound - and can reach speeds of up to Mach 10, with a range of about 1,250 miles. The missile is also believed to be nuclear powered.

An even more sophisticated weapon, the Russian Avangard supersonic glide vehicle, can fly at speeds of up to 27 Mach, according to the Kremlin. Another supersonic, the Zircon anti-ship missile, has also been deployed, but there are no reports of Zircon or Avangard being used in combat.

The US has poured nearly $200 billion into this conflict so far, but the Russians continue to gain more ground.

Even with all the help we've given them, the Ukrainians are simply outmatched, and at this point even Ukrainian news sources openly acknowledge the reality of what has happened in places like Bahmut.

The Kyiv Independent recently interviewed soldiers on the front line and issued a surprisingly blunt assessment (given that it's obviously a news source on the Ukrainian side) that Ukrainian soldiers are largely " unprepared, poorly trained battalions thrown into the front-line meat grinder to survive as best they could with minimal support from armored vehicles, mortars, artillery, drones and tactical intelligence."

If politicians on both sides and their families really had to fight these wars, they would end the war very quickly.

I think things could soon go to a whole new level.

Once they lose Bahmut, the Ukrainians will become very desperate and may end up doing something really stupid.

Speaking for the foolish, highly respected journalist Seymour Hersh says the Biden administration's approach to Ukraine is "very scary and very foolish."

Do they really want to get NATO into a war? No doubt we've increased the number of U.S. troops in Poland, secretly, and they're deploying a lot more weapons in that region. I suppose they may push NATO to make a physical presence.

An increasing presence of Russian submarines off the coast of the US.

As Russian President Vladimir Putin's war in Ukraine continues to rage, U.S. commanders and military observers are sounding the alarm about Russian submarine fleet activity thousands of miles away off the U.S. coast.

Throughout the war, which began when Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine last February, there has been a buildup of Russian naval forces in the Black Sea. There has also been a growing presence of Russian submarines off the U.S. coast and in the Mediterranean, according to officials.

Meanwhile, one of the Chinese military's top officers publicly said it is time to "concentrate our efforts on preparations for war."

Stressing the urgency of Beijing on Sunday, one of China's two most senior military officers, Zhang Youxia, called on the People's Liberation Army to "concentrate its efforts on preparations for war."

If the Chinese did not intend to invade Taiwan, they would have no reason to prepare for war.

But the truth is that they know they are going to invade, and they also know that it will mean war with the United States.

Of course, the US military is quickly preparing for such a conflict. The following comes from a very interesting article in The Economist about US preparations for a war with the Chinese.

The Marines are training for a war with China, probably precipitated by an invasion of Taiwan.

Their base in Okinawa, at the southern tip of the Japanese archipelago, is just 600 kilometers (370 miles) from Taiwan. The two islands are part of what U.S. military planners call the "first island chain": a series of archipelagos and islands, large and small, stretching from Japan to Malaysia, blocking naval passage from China to the Pacific.

Whether carrying Chinese ships at a distance or - far less likely - deploying to Taiwan to help repel a Chinese invasion, the Marines will be involved early in any conflict.

Before I end this article, I want to make sure no one forgets the Middle East.

War is coming there too, and it will be absolutely terrible.

Things are so tense in the region right now, and we have just witnessed horrible statements that portend catastrophic war.…

Corporations Own Ukraine

These numbers are nuts:

Corporations such as "Cargill", "DuPont" and "Monsanto" (which is formally a German-Australian company, but essentially an American one) are among the most prominent owners of Ukrainian arable land. In addition, corporations like "Vanguard", "Blackrock" and "Blackstone" are among the largest shareholders in the aforementioned agricultural giants, owning trillions in assets. For instance, "Blackrock" is a fund that manages assets worth over $10 trillion, with "Vanguard" controlling at least six and "Blackstone" managing up to $1 trillion. Together, the three massive US multinational corporations ("Cargill", "DuPont" and "Monsanto") own over 17 million hectares of Ukraine's arable land.

In comparison, the whole of Italy has 16.7 million hectares of agricultural land. In short, the three American corporations own more usable agricultural land in Ukraine than what the whole country of Italy has. The entire area of Ukraine is approximately 600,000 square km. Out of that land area, 170,000 square km have been acquired by foreign corporations, the vast majority Western, particularly those based in or financed by the US. Since the new law on the sale of agricultural land passed by the Kiev regime entered into full force approximately one year ago, to this day, the three large multinational consortia financed with US capital have acquired well over a quarter of Ukrainian arable land. A report by the Australian National Review states that the three US corporations managed to acquire 17 out of the 62 million hectares of agricultural land in less than a year. This made it possible for them to control 28% of the total arable land in Ukraine.

Now you know why they fight.

I hold nothing against any of you as persons, and I would subscribe back, but it just isn't appropriate for me, plus most of my posting is either from work or at home where this is all very inappropriate.

Good thing God gave Adam and Eve clothes when he placed them in the Garden of Eden.


One of the great ironies that nobody wants to acknowledge is that even American globalists would have to concede that Georgia, the nation, has a better chance of retaining its identity and culture if it is incorporated politically into Russia..!

To be left on the outside would almost certainly damn it to being fully sucked into the NATO-sphere and thus becoming a rainbow colony of the West.


Liberals ultimately, though, do not have any concern about this: they view the destruction of the past as a necessary act to liberate the individual.

But we all know one thing... Only Christ can liberate a man - to enter further into sin will condemn him.

Sexual liberty is actually slavery.
