Putin Declares 4 Annexed Regions “Ours Forever”, Blames US For Nord Stream Attacks, by Tyler Durden

The U.S. government can caterwaul all it wants, but Russia just annexed four regions from the Ukraine and whats the government going to do about it. And the U.S. government can deny all it wants, but it is surely the lead suspect in the Nordstream attacks. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Update(10:23ET): With the ink drying on the official annexation declarations newly signed by the heads of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions in Friday’s historic ceremony – the key takeaway from President Putin’s lengthy speech is that he declared a “mission accomplished” of sorts. He said these eastern and southern provinces are now part of Russia “forever”. He even touted that the referendums were accomplished in line with the UN charter on self-determination for all peoples, and vowed “They have made their choice… this is the only path to peace. We will protect our land using all our forces and we will protect their security. We will of course rebuild all destroyed towns and continue building hospitals, theaters, and schools.”

Putin bluntly informed the large audience of top officials at Saint George’s Hall at the Grand Kremlin Palace of Moscow that there are now “four new regions of Russia” – a fait accompli that the Ukrainian government and its Western backers are rejecting, also on fresh reports that pro-Kremlin forces have suffered more setbacks in Donetsk in particular. Earlier in the week Moscow acknowledged that its “special operation” will continue until at least all of Donetsk is captured. At this point, none of the entirety of each of the four regions are yet under total Russian military control, the overwhelming “yes” votes among citizens in favor of joining the Russian Federation notwithstanding.

This means Kiev is of course unlikely to accept Putin’s essential assertion of we’ve taken the four territories, now let the negotiations begin [our paraphrase]. “We call on the Kyiv regime to immediately stop hostilities and sit at the negotiating table,” Putin said.

The Cockeyed Crusade…, by Patrick Foy

The projection—a psychological term for imputing your own motivations and psychoses to someone else—of Europe and the U.S. towards Russia is off the charts. From Patrick Foy at lewrockwell.com:

By what deranged thinking did meddling in a civil war over territories that have been Russian for more than 300 years merit bringing the world economy to its knees and putting the living standards of publics throughout the West in greater peril than at any time since the 1930s?—David Stockman

I confess to being at wits’ end over the monstrous Ukraine affair and its ever-expanding dangerous ramifications. The war was concocted and contrived in Washington. This is Biden’s, Blinken’s and Nuland’s war—a cockeyed crusade to destabilize Russia.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was quoted in FT’s Weekend Edition of September 17th as stating, “We have known for a long time [my emphasis] that Russia is no longer a reliable energy supplier. That’s why it’s important to do everything we can now to safeguard Germany’s energy supply.” See Germany seizes Rosneft oil refineries. This claptrap sounds like something written for Biden’s teleprompter.

Would it not be more accurate and honest to say that Germany was no longer a reliable customer of Russian energy? Under Scholz, the German government, taking its marching orders from Washington,  has decided not to purchase Russian oil.  Ditto for Russian natural gas.

Russia has the goods; Berlin declines to purchase them. Fine. All right. Russia can sell elsewhere. Status quo ante. Start over.

Subsequently, this self-destructive and yet “unavoidable” decision—unavoidable according to Scholz—has been routinely gaslighted to Europe and America as a prime example of President Putin’s “weaponizing of energy”—when the exact opposite is true.

Covid Scam, NATO Wars, Green Extremism: The Tyrannical Trifecta From Hell, by Chuck Baldwin

We’re plagued by the malevolent schemes of those who want to rule the world. From Chuck Baldwin at lewrockwell.com:

Everyone feels it, but not everyone sees it: America’s greatest threat is not from Russia or China or from any other foreign government. America’s greatest threat is from our own government in Washington, D.C. When will the American people get that through their heads?

The globalist devils inside the Beltway manufactured and implemented the Covid scamdemic: the greatest act of tyranny inside U.S. borders since Lincoln invaded the South.

The globalist devils inside the beltway have turned Europe and the world into a giant military encampment with U.S. and NATO bases on the doorsteps of almost every country on the planet, which only incites nations to retaliate.

And the globalist devils inside the beltway have turned U.S. energy policies over to an extremist Green agenda that if fully implemented will turn the greatest nation to ever exist into a third world country. In fact, America is already headed in that direction.

Is the US on a War Footing? By Karen Kwiatkowski

Judging by the number of years of its history has been at war, the U.S. is pretty much always on a war footing. From Karen Kwiatkowski at lewrockwell.com:

Michael Snyder summarizes the demolition of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines well, with links to support what we do know so far.  Did the US do it?  Purposeful destruction of another country’s property and logistics, conducted in international waters 300 feet below the surface of the ocean is certainly an act of war.  It is also in the sweet spot of false flag operations, needed when the real reason Washington wants a particular war is not domestically compelling or popular.  Of course, many nations have admitted false flag events.

Tom Luongo writes that much of the US and British reaction to the Russian-Ukrainian war – a war the US has been part of since long before 2014 – may be about ensuring most of Europe bends the knee to Washington, rather than becoming more economically integrated with the modernizing and resource rich East.

The Coming Food Crisis… These Historical Events Show You What To Expect, by Chris MacIntosh

Let governments take control of food production and distribution and famine is almost inevitable. From Chris MacIntosh at internationalman.com:

Coming Crisis

The parallels of history are hard to ignore.

Let’s take a look, because what’s happening today on the food front has been tried before.

From the 1930’s through the 1940’s Stalin’s Soviet Union had a “5-year Industrialization Plan” – these central planners never learn. This genius plan involved “rapid industrialization,” together with “socialized farming” and, of course, the elimination of private enterprise and property ownership.

The results? Grumpy people. A LOT of them. What brought about so many grumpy folks was this. Grain exports collapsed, economic output collapsed and more than 30 million starved to death between 1932 and 1947.

Next up, central planner numero deux.

Chairman Mao and the “Great Leap Forward.”

Like Stalin, Mao implemented a “5-year Industrialization Plan” from 1958 to 1962.

What If They Threw a Pandemic & Nobody Came? By Margaret Anna Alice

Stop the power grab that would give WHO powers that supersede national laws. From Margaret Anna Alice at margaretannaalice.substack.com:

Sending an SOS to the World: #StopTheTreaty

What If They Threw a Pandemic and Nobody Came: Person on Deserted Island Sending an SOS Fire

“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers (administrators) too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery.”
—Thomas Jefferson1, A Summary View of the Rights of British America (Kindle, paperback, hardcover)

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
—H.L. Mencken, In Defense of Women (Kindle, paperback, hardcover, audiobook)

Sending out an SOS

This is an SOS to the people of the world.

At this moment in history, a global coup is underway. It started in 2020. Really, it started long before that, but we’ll focus on 2020 onward because that’s when Mr. GloboCap; the philanthropaths; their mentors and muses; the tyrants; WEF puppets; the “experts”; government agencies; and the colluders yanked the rug out from under us and we began our dizzying tumble down the rabbit-hole of propaganda; menticide; psychological experimentation; dehumanization; disconnection; obedience training; censorship of “misinformation”; data obfuscation; gagging of doctors; smearing of scientists; bamboozlement; human rights violations; mandates; quarantining; martial law; medical apartheid; totalitarianism; concentration camps; and all ten stages of genocide via experimental injection, hospicide, and mockery of early treatment protocols.

Why Bonds Are Behaving Like Risky Assets, by MN Gordon

Bonds are always risky assets. People just forget that after an almost 40-year bull market. From MN Gordon at economicprism.com:

“When the [credit] delusion breaks, people all with one impulse hoard their money, banks all with one impulse hoard credit, and debt becomes debt again, as it always was.  Credit is ruined.”

– Garet Garrett, 1932, A Bubble that Broke the World

Down, Down, Down

Third quarter 2022 ends today [Friday].  We’re entering the year’s home stretch.  Thus, we’ll take a moment to observe where money and markets have been, so we can conjecture as to where they’re going.

To begin, United States stock markets are in an epic battle between bulls and bears.  For most of the year, the bears have been delivering heavy blows.  But the bulls have not taken their punches lying down.  Here’s a quick review of the three major U.S. Indexes…

After peaking out on January 4, 2022, at 4,814.62 the S&P 500 declined 24.46 percent to an interim bottom of 3,636.87 on June 17, 2022.  The DJIA fell approximately 19.71 percent over this time.

The NASDAQ’s decline commenced on November 22, 2021, at a peak of 16,212.23.  It then cascaded to an interim bottom of 10,565.14 on June 16, 2022, for a top to bottom decline of 34.83 percent.

The indexes then rallied into mid-August.  Many investors thought the bear market was over.  They invested accordingly.  But, alas, it was merely a sucker’s rally.  September was ugly.

Zelensky Seen On Raft Asking For Donations From Flooded Florida Residents

From The Babylon Bee:

FORT MYERS, FL — As emergency crews worked tirelessly to rescue Floridians with the sense to stay out of Georgia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was seen on a rescue boat, paddling door to door and asking for donations to support the war effort against Russia.

Zelensky explained to victims of Hurricane Ian that $60 Billion was barely enough to buy a few drones from American arms dealers and that the Rolex on his wrist was a knock-off.

“Madam, is that your purse floating away in the raging torrent?” said Zelensky to an elderly woman fighting off a gator. “If you could swim over and grab it, that’d be great. Every little bit helps.”

Zelensky was seen throughout Fort Myers weaving between rescue boats and flooded homes, reminding Floridians who had not yet succumbed that Putin was pure evil. After that, he took some time to visit any celebrities who lived nearby because he had only met most of them via Zoom. One Floridian called from her rooftop to remind Zelensky she had already helped by changing her profile picture to the Ukrainian flag for nearly three weeks.

At publishing time, Congress had passed the Hurricane Ian Recovery Act, aimed at sending FEMA workers and $30 Billion to Ukraine.

Diana Johnstone: Omerta in the Gangster War

“That’s a nice couple of pipelines you got there. Sure wouldn’t want to see anything happen to them.” And that’s the way it rolls in the Baltic. From Diana Johnstone at consortiumnews.com:

The sabotage of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has virtually announced that the war in Ukraine can only intensify with no end in sight.

Imperialist wars are waged to conquer lands, peoples, territories.  Gangster wars are waged to remove competitors.  In gangster wars you issue an obscure warning, then you smash the windows or burn the place down.

Gangster war is what you wage when you already are the boss and won’t let any outsider muscle in on your territory.  For the dons in Washington, the territory can be just about everywhere, but its core is occupied Europe.

By an uncanny coincidence, Joe Biden just happens to look like a mafia boss, to talk like a mafia boss, to wear a little lopsided half smile like a mafia boss.  Just watch the now famous video:

The War Has Just Begun, by Big Serge

Expect a major Russian offensive in the Ukraine this winter. The snow won’t bother the Russians a bit; they’re used to it! From Big Serge at bigserge.substack.com:

The Winter of Yuri

I have been attempting for several days to collect my thoughts on the Russo-Ukrainian War and condense them into another analysis piece, but my efforts were consistently frustrated by the war’s stubborn refusal to sit still. After a slow, attritional grind for much of the summer, events have begun to accelerate, calling to mind a famous quip from Vladimir Lenin: “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”

This has been one of those weeks. It began with the commencement of referenda in four former Ukrainian oblasts to determine whether or not to join the Russian Federation, accompanied by Putin’s announcement that reservists would be called up to augment the force deployment in Ukraine. Further excitement bubbled up from the Baltic seabed with the mysterious destruction of the Nordstream pipelines. Nuclear rumors circulate, and all the while the war on the ground continues.
