In early April 2021 (yes, 2021), the Dreizin Report—then an email newsletter, not a blog, though I have since posted much of my old material to this blog—wrote that a Russia-Ukraine war is “imminent.”
At that time, the risk was not of a Russian offensive. Rather, for their own domestic political reasons (namely, a 23 percent approval rating), Saint Zelensky’s people were itching to invade and retake the Russian-backed, rebel Donbass.
Ultimately, Uncle Sam must have told his Ukraine colony to cool its jets, and later that year, the initiative shifted to Russia and what Putin wants to do.
But at the time (again, this was early April 2021), I wrote:
It is clear the DoD (the U.S. Department of Defense) is preparing to fight, in the immediate term, using Ukraine, a fairly large-scale proxy war—conceivably with direct U.S. involvement, if things go south for Ukraine, as they likely will—with Russia. It is also clear that several years of relative global peace and stability experienced under President Trump are likely soon coming to an end (in case anyone doubted that would happen.)
In no particular order, I also wrote:
The Democrat party regime is now exceedingly weak—like Napoleon in Moscow, they seem to be in charge, but they are losing direction and (with Senators Manchin and Sinema holding on the filibuster) they can’t produce their intended results—and one obvious solution is a foreign war to rally the masses with some rah-rah chyrons under Wolf Blitzer’s solemn face on CNN.
…..it is a political dead end for Republicans to hand the Democrats a loud “me too” chorus in support of a Biden war-of-choice in Ukraine. Most Republican voters are more concerned with the Democrats turning the U.S. into Russia, than they are about Russia.
Further… (it was bolded in the original)… (and it sounds rather prophetic, given the recent $40 billion)…..
Whatever the case, it’s clear that Uncle Sam needs another project on the scope and potentially the scale of Afghanistan, and Ukraine is now the only obvious candidate. We should expect more funny business, because there is a lot of “turf”, career self-interest, financial profit, and political benefit behind “standing up to Russian aggression.”
ANY RUSSIA HYSTERIA OR ANY FOREIGN CONFLICT NOW WOULD BE A MAJOR DISTRACTION, HIGHLY DISRUPTIVE TO THE “AMERICA FIRST” CAUSE. IF SENATE REPUBLICANS FEEL THEY HAVE TO “RAH-RAH” AND FALL IN LINE BEHIND WHATEVER THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH WANTS TO DO, IT WILL VASTLY STRENGTHEN THE DEMOCRATS AND THE BUSH-CHENEY-RYAN WING OF THE GOP, WHILE DELAYING THE RECONSTITUTION OF A GENUINE, POST-TRUMP REPUBLICAN AGENDA SO AS TO ENSURE THE NATIONAL GOP IS NOT JUST A ME-TOO, DEMOCRAT-LITE PARTY AS IT WAS IN 2015.
I suggested to the Congressional GOP as follows:
Republicans should demand an honest and unscripted explanation from the President himself, to include answering live, unscripted questions from non-Democrat-oriented media outlets.
Republicans should not allow Biden to play the “tough guy” and grandstand off an optional war, while he pawns the coherent talking off on his Secretary of Defense or someone else.
If he owns it, he owns it—he is our Commander-in-Chief. If he is incapable of addressing the nation regarding a major conflict which his government has authorized—especially if he has sent American ships, aircraft, or other assets to Russia’s coasts or borders, where they may be shot at, by mistake or not—he should consider making way for younger leadership.
Congressional Republicans, particularly those in the Senate, are already short on credibility with the GOP base, and with Trump diehards in particular. After years of Russia nothingburgers to bring down our 45th president, rallying to President Biden for an opportunistic proxy war with Russia risks further alienating the base. If the Democrats need a war, it is advisable to let them fight it themselves.
LOL, looks like no one listened to me. Of course, if you’re a Republican senator, it’s easier to just go with the flow, and keep proving your loyalty to the military-industrial lobby and its campaign donations.
We have no obvious leadership in the USA. On the national GOP side, we have a bunch of lazy posers, thinking they are going to win the midterm election by default, because of inflation blah blah, not working for it, no real agenda, no harsh talk at Brandon, nothing.
I’ll be laughing at these fools if the plague comes back and we have another virtual, mail-in election, and they get blasted again.
(To be clear, it will come back soon enough, or there will be another one. Only question is, will it be in time for the midterms?)

It is cool that you predicted it in 2021.
I disagree with some of your points though.
You assume we have two parties and it explains politics. Conflict between parties is for show.
You believe, we have no leadership. I disagree. Everything Trump did, starting with COVID lockdown and vaccines, and everything Biden does, is scripted by WEF. The real engine of USA politics is the Great Reset agenda.
Amen, and perhaps we can also add Putin to the list of WEF “Little Urban Achievers?” Russia was just as fanatic as the EU and Australia/New Zealand about forced vaccinations and introducing a Social Credit System based on vaxx status with every Russian city introducing QR codes necessary for entry into restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters etc. This is an inconvenient FACT that most ‘alt news sites’ like ZH or The Duran have swept under the rug because it doesn’t fit into their “Putin is playing 3-D chess” narrative. p.s. same for Trump’s 3-D chess: hardly a peep on ZH or The Duran about how Trump enabled the WEF/WHO/Big Pharma/Neo-Marxist power grab by facilitating total immunity for Big Pharma with his Operation Warp Speed. Not a word how Trump funneled extra BILLIONS to the MIC from day ONE of his presidency. The Cognitive Dissonance is mind boggling.
you obviously exist in some sort of bitter fantasyland. Which big pharma Co would rush and produce a vaccine without being granted immunity?? the answer is zero. Trump had no choice but to grant them that or they simply would have not rushed it to market. With the media blaming every single covid death on Trump i don’t think he had much of a choice either. its easy to arm chair criticize but much harder to make these choices when so much is on the line. Trumps campaign promise was to strengthen the military he made no bones about it
Duran explains all problems in the world by machinations of evil “small ethnicity”, or “neocons”. This is their handicap.
I’ve literally never heard them blame anything on any ethnic group, what are you talking about?
“Sure, you can pretend they are just a myth.” Does not sound friendly. As if you suspect some dishonesty on my part. Do you also believe that this conflict may be explained by hatred of powerful Jews toward Russia?
No. The conflict is due to two predatory powers (one, of course, immensely stronger and more aggressive) competing for influence beyond their borders.
I believe, there is connection between COVID and the war in Ukraine. They both involve somewhat similar professional propaganda throughout whole West, organized brainwashing, suppression of dissidents. Britain, Europe actively participate in it. The sanctions hurt western population much more than Russia. Most likely, this is designed this way. It was easy to predict. .
Russia was no where near as draconian as the West. I, personally, was back at the gym in late June 2020, have never been vaccinated (Russia had one of the lowest vaccination rates in the world outside Africa) and went about my business as usual as long as I wore a mask. The only real restriction was attending large gatherings like concerts, sporting events or theatres. QR codes were not strictly observed overall and hardly a problem in most provincial towns and cities.
Thanks! I needed to know that. Otherwise as the poster wrote, Putin becomes just another tool of the Davos Gang and their enforcers, the CDC and Tony F.
Agree and the Uniparty along with the govt propaganda MSM have been silent and complicit with the ongoing conflict for the last 8 years, so all of them have to act like something just happened and all of us should be outraged at Russia about it. The 54 billion will be just a start to the money laundering.
The expression “small ethnic minority, which hates Russia” is a favorite one of Gonzalo Lira. Nuland is considered by him one of this group. Once, not long ago, he explicitly mentioned the term on the Duran show, and both hosts agreed with him. But the Duran, mostly, blames all on “neocons”. They do not use the expression “small ethnic minority”.
“Neocon” and “Jewish” are not interchangeable. There is certainly a small but powerful, policy and media clique in Washington (and some in NY) that is of Jewish descent and of a strongly (in some cases, rabidly) hate-Russia bent. I have come across some of these people myself, in prior jobs. Sure, you can pretend they are just a myth. Of course, most U.S. Jews don’t care about Russia any more than most other Americans.
Ukraine will be showered with grift and Hunter is likely in Warsaw now. Doing ‘his thing’
The existence of the uni-party in the US is not mutually exclusive with the views of ‘normal people’ living there who disagree. Consider media influences and the ‘intelligence’ apparatus. This applies to most nations.
What we have is some of the most crooked people alive in Congress. The Senate is full of total idiots on the Democrat side and chickenshit neocons on the Republican side. There should have never been a majority the Republicans had put up with what a damn fool could see was Obama sabatoge of Trump with a Hillary Clinton lie, fed through a group of criminals in charge of our injustice deprtment. These people are now certifiable as NAZI’s, as you can tell by how they act. They want to disarm Americans because that is what Hitler did. War is how you destroy a Republic. along with emergency. Americans need to wake up, as we are watching the 4th Reich.
Been a reader for a while but I think this is the fuse tone I’ve tried to comment. Your domestic politics are none of my business, but I would like to ask your opinion of what happens if the Ukranazi coup regime begins imploding by June-July as it seems lonely to, with us military already disintegrating. Will NATO, which means the US, stuff Ukranazistan down the memory hole like Afghanistan, or will it double down, sending in NATO forces as in Vietnam “not to fight, but to free Ukraine to fight”, until November at least?
Brandon already switched gear around creating the Taiwan war. As soon as it starts Ukraine will be forgotten. Unless here is some very easy milking opportunity, might be forgotten even before that. For the population U is not the current thing for some time and considering the overwhelming success probably many would be happy to erase this from memory and start a fresh page.
Hi Pasa, I have people in Taiwan, they tell me that the US orchestrated a coup installing the Greens who have been busy making policy that contradicts the Chinese view. These Greens need watching, they want to save the world so they can blow it up.
Who would have thought 30 years ago when the wall came down that we would be now living on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain, at least in terms of information and communication? My email server (Icelandic) shuts down in a couple of days, and the CEO stated in no uncertain terms that due to “external pressure” he could no longer guarantee data security. Similarily, where once was Pravda, Izvestia etc we now have the BBC, CNN et al propagating the same garbage the former used to back in the day. Dark times.
When Biden said he was going to “build, back, better” we didn’t know he was talking about the Berlin Wall.
In other words “Hate to say I told you so……but …..I told you so”. Yeah, good call Mr. Dreizen
Would you kindly post an email address I could use to send a direct message, or else send me a personal email? An idea occurred to me that might prove of interest and benefit to the Dreizen Report. Tnx. og
unfortunately both senators from Texas are backstabbing gop-E drones. All hat no cattle grifters
If you believe in two parties, I have a news for you. Here is the list of current Davos attendees:
Its good to see no representatives from Russia attending – as well as my home country NZ…..
Very prescient! If it’s any consolation western Europe is no better, just a slightly different flavour. Regardless of the European country, we’re led by technocrats incrementally implementing neo-liberal economic policies regardless of the obvious societal damage being done. And, similar to the US, these policies are cheered on by corporate-owned media while any dissenting voices are eviscerated in the MSM. As a bonus we in WE get the even more opaque and unaccountable EU superstructure co-ordinating it all. The fallout among the general public is dealt with by placing ever increasing restrictions on legitimate protest. Representative democracy is dying or dead all over the west in a “boiling the frog” kind of way.
I’m new to your blog and just coming up to speed. You seem to have a reality-based perspective on current events (which is both rare and refreshing), and as is demonstrated in today’s post, also possess some proficiency in prognostication. But now my questions is . . . to what end? Are you presuming that, through education and persuasion, we can alter the political trajectory of the US and elect better leaders? Or are you just documenting our demise for future historians to analyze? It seems to me that serious bloggers should have a defined purpose for their efforts. If you have one, please share it. Apologies if this has been addressed previously and I am unaware.
uncanny ability at spotting and reading the signals or was cc’d in when they distributed the road map. Are these politicians seriously our brightest and best or has nepotism , class and decadence had an adverse affect on the gene pool?
Hah, I wasn’t cc’d on the road map. Wish I was. Thanks.
Quite frankly, as much as I detest Democrats, I’m deathly afraid of the far more dangerous incompetence and rank idiocy of Republicans.
Republicans are more dangerous because they’ve historically “worked their magic” on a gullible low-information jingoistic segment of the American population by wrapping themselves in the flag while chest-thumping bout how “patriotic” they were and how tough they were going to be with “lesser” nations that failed to bend the knee.
Which was “fine” as long as these bullies restricted their attentions to hapless Third-World prey like Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. However, they’d be toying with an orders-of-magnitude greater level of madness if they make themselves believe that they can deal in that exact same manner with nuclear superpowers like Russia and China.
Good call, Jacob! I came to the same conclusion later in the summer after I read Putin’s essay on the unity of Russians and Ukrainians. It was clear he was going to hit the Ukie monster pre-emptively when the GRU got wind of the Bayraktar-led blitz on the Donbass enclaves, But I would not have called it in April, because of the Russians massing troops on the border which seemed (to the analysts that I followed) to have scared Pentagon off momentarily. I still believe that the final decision to hit came later, in June or July, and Putin’s essay was to reassure the Kremlin hawks that he was now in favour of Surkov’s plan (he fired him a year before) and he was committed to the idea of собирания русских земель (the gathering of Russian lands). The “draft agreement” sent to US and NATO in December was simply a smoke screen, and as Dmitry Simes said, specifically formulated all-or-nothing proposition, which was written up with the express desire to be rejected. So yes, Russia was coming to get what’s hers, and good for you to call it!
You should drop by the Moon of Alabama blog. Lots of smart discussion going on there about Ukraine. Also, you should address Scott Ritter’s 180 on whether Russia is winning in Ukraine.
Ritter is unwelcome topic here, read back a few days. Also, there’s no 180 really, you can just listen to FULL talk instead of fragments cut mid-sentence and reinterpreted — RM just posted a 2h+ extensive talk, or to save time j.Napolitano has 20min streamlined version. You can decide for yourself whether the several if-s attached to the new evaluation are likely or not. Especially considering the progress in the last week.
Yes, when it comes to foreign policy, there is no difference between the two parties. If you think about it more, This policy with regards to Russia is actually detrimental to the interest of the U.S. Number one should not be fighting number two and number three at the same time. We need a sort of reverse Nixon. Unfortunately, our MIC has bought both parties and there is no one that will oppose them.
This is one of the failings of our system. If a group has the financial interest to push the country in a certain direction, and this group has considerable financial clout, there will be no one opposing them even if the interests of this group are severely at odds with the interest of the nation. No one will spend blood and treasure to fight another group just so that our national interests are served. There has to be some money at stake for a group to take any action. These days, politics is all about money. All politicians will sell out if they want to get elected.
Chris Hedges spoke of the conservative neocons and the liberal interventionists chanting together for war.
Would you please offer an in-depth review/rebuttal of Youtubers like ” Inside Russia” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vQgx28vNsg who claim that the Russian economy is about to collapse, and do so for all time. This vlogger says that in his hometown of Rostov, fresh strawberries are selling for Ru. 650/kg as opposed to Ru.250/kg a year ago. Potatoes, i.e. last September’s harvest, are selling at Ru.65/kg as opposed to Ru. 20/kg a year ago. Hence, despite no increase in wages, this man claims that prices have risen 3x since last year.
One is unable to evaluate the apocalyptic predictions of this Youtuber along with many of his ilk. It goes without saying that Youtubers from Russia are dependent on the goodwill of their subscribers, in addition to lavish gift packages from gullible and emotionally-overwrought US viewers [ see “Different Russia”, “Yeah Russia” etc.] .
These Youtubers may indeed be right, but other points of view as well as a critical evaluation of their claims re: Russian economy, would be most welcome.
Thank you for your work.
Similar jump in strawberry price here, Despite some local is already supposed to be on market, not just the imported green stuff available through the year. In Rostov isn;t it 1-2 weeks too early?
2-3x food prices compared to 2019 are probably the norm not the exception, but some areas may pick up the pace slower (so really enjoying an extra year of cheap.) And more expected where it’s not homegrown. If anything, I expect Russia to lag behind in the hikes. Bigtime.
And economy has lot of inertia, I would not jump to conclusions in just 1-2 months. Especially under 1-time event influence that is supposed to create a big wave. USDRUB went 75->140->60 over 3 months. Let’s see the potato prices in September.
Thanks for your comment. My understanding, there was an unusually poor harvest for potatoes. But, grains did very well. With the restriction in the export of Russian grains, prices of foodstuffs such as bread and noodles should not be rising much, if at all.
I live in Russia, in Moscow region.
Fruit and vegetable prices here must be compared very carefully. The difference between, say, March and September can be triple, irrespective of any international problems. One more factor is whether the produce sold in spring is local “old harvest” or imported “new harvest” (mostly from CIS countries). At the moment, my local supermarket offers “old” potato for 50-60 rubles per kilo and “fresh” potato for 80-90. Yes, it’s more expensive than last year, but the difference is about 10 maybe 15 rub, it definitely hasn’t doubled or tripled. Rostov, by the way, in terms of agriculture is the major exporting region, so the prices there are supposed to be lower.
The location is actually another factor that should be considered. My parents live in a small town in the Urals. Dairy products, bread and meat which they consume are mostly locally produced and the price hike there is significantly lower than in Moscow, for some products it hasn’t happend at all.
Though all in all inflation is still a b*tch, we felt it here and grumble a lot about it, but at the moment life is quite manageable.
Very reasonably and cogently viewpoint
After looking at the video… sort of. it got me seriously annoyed right on. my patience was only enough to 6m mark, from there just seeking in. I just have to call utter constructed BS, and aiming for some special audience too (that’s very far for my views).
1-2 weeks ago I talked with my bro in Moscow. Mentioned how it should be problems there before the replacements for the moved out companies get working. He immediately said WHAT? all the companies are there alright working, some changed name or use workarounds, but moved out name only. Except for IKEA that is gone for good. (certainly it’s not the one, but the real number is kinda a handful). When I mentioned the buttons from news he didn’t even hear about related problems and certainly none of us thought it will be a stable problem.
This guy is cherry-picking while making impression what he shows is the norm rather than the rare exception. And count how many minutes he spent on hailing the IKEA. Which is one of many furniture shops. But its place will obviously not be replaced in short time. (also it also might holding on to the places and look to reopen later.)
Then we see the mall — do you believe the narrative or your own lying eyes? I honestly saw nothing worth mentioning, exactly what I see in any random mall around europe. The sops work, the ware is all there, also the people. the “empty store” is only the title. This guy looks too youung to have an idea what that means, I saw those aplenty back in 80s. And if people don’t line up at gucci, instead looking for bread, for me it is sign of going more, not less normal.
On the last few minutes, I agree with plenty of things. First people cut back on luxury. Let me guess what you see in the UK these days in the mall. I risk to bet similar trend. Without sanctions.
What goes on in Ukraine is a tragedy — absolutely. And it was so since 2014. Anger, pain dispair just to think about it. hell yeah. being depressed? I am since about Mar 2020 as the lockdown madness started. And see myself in a huge company with that. No idea what to do about it? I mean about the whole world going bonkers around? In kinda all countries in my purview? Pedal to the metal with idiocracy? Leaders deliberately runing their country? With big part of population supporting that. And the other part looking to also ruin it, just in a slightly altered way?
TLDR; this is life we have all around. I’m open to suggestions where it is better and/or improving.
Would you please offer a detailed appraisal as to why [ at least in my inexpert view] Russian aircraft [ not helicopters] seem to not be playing as significant or as aggressive a role in the Ukraine conflict as might have been expected?
Millenium 7* History Tech [ e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg0L5vRnc8s%5D describes the integrated air defense systems of Russia, among other things. Despite bombing runs on Azovstal, is the Russian Air Force relatively less aggressive on the front lines and in the support of Russian ground forces? Kindly offer your thoughts.
Russian fixed wing aircraft comprise a significant fraction of the air forces of countries like India, which manufactures various lines under license. Russian aircraft engine life, as well as many other factors, have shown Russian aircraft to be far less effective than opposing F-16 under stringent war conditions in India. French Mirages, and even mothballed MIG 25s have proven more effective than current top of the line Sukhois and MIGs in India.
What is the real situation re: Russian fixed wing craft in the Ukraine?
Prescient. “It is clear the DoD (the U.S. Department of Defense) is preparing to fight, in the immediate term, using Ukraine, a fairly large-scale proxy war—conceivably with direct U.S. involvement, if things go south for Ukraine, as they likely will—with Russia.” That in April 2021.
It’s now a year later. In the meantime that proxy war has been fought and lost. The sanctions war has been fought and lost. The information war has so far been successful. I’m still seeing the blue and yellow flag flying on some of the churches round my way. What will happen when some of us flying it realise what it was all about it’s impossible to guess. Helping neo-nazis get into the Donbas was not the most glorious of causes.
The question still remains, what next? The wider Russian demands for a new European security framework have not been met. The missile bases are still there. NATO is now pressing them harder. Will the Russians now forget about those demands?
If they don’t, and if they employ counter-sanctions against us as forcefully as we’ve tried to employ sanctions against them, it’s going to be a rough few years coming up.
“We have no obvious leadership in the USA”.
Interesting that you should state this less than 24 hours after I heard, on The Duran, Alexander Mercouris say the same thing about the U.K. And I believe he extended this paucity to most of the governments of Europa.
As FDR famously said, “If something happens in politics you can be sure it was supposed to happen”. This is one among many examples of the extensive political power wielded by the ‘Great Re-set/New World Order’ Davos/Bilderberg conspiracy. Just one more reason why “they” had to get rid of Trump who was a real leader despite his many flaws.
Here in California we have already received notification from the State that a ballot will be mailed to every name and address on the voter registration rolls. California has motor voter registration and anyone person who walks into a Department of Motor Vehicles office can obtain a drivers license and register to vote. California has also legalized vote harvesting. Political campaign workers are allowed to contact registered voters, ask if they need help with absentee voting, collect the completed ballots and turn them in to the precinct offices. In the 2018 mid-term elections the six Republican members of Congress in Orange County California appeared to have won re-election when the polls closed, but were defeated after counting mail-in ballots and the 250,000 harvested ballots Democratic campaign workers delivered to precinct officials.
This has not been forgotten by the majority of people in OC, but these kid of tactics have been in play for decades now. The majority of people actually side with most conservative principles , but are afraid of retribution if they are open about it.
People also have just stopped voting in CA (very likely in other blue strongholds) and this has been going on for decades as well.
A tipping point will come for Antifah, or the ‘Greens’ or ‘Labor Party’ as they call the insane left in Europe.
The real problem is how this is put into reverse.
I don’t see elections as the solution anymore. This is my largest concern.
“We have no obvious leadership in the USA” -> you pointed the issue for USA, but it is also true for World Wide (except currently Russia, Hungary, Brasil, Salomon islands ? and some others I guess – but very few) – and for me it is the major danger that could drive to WW3. In EU, mainly activists, governing with 15%-20%, majorities reached by “exclusion” vote vs the opponent. Added to that, democracy has been replaced by “ollicracy”. From my point of view (FR), Trump will be the solution 🙂 (domino effect).
You are too much rational for the time being, Officials focus on very short term (profits :-)).
prescient as ever!
About the only thing I agree with in this post is “We have no obvious leadership in the USA.” I’d go further and say we have no leadership at all. We have politicians, people who understand politics, but who don’t bother to come to an understanding of issues and policies. They act on ideology and self-interest only.
Are we talking about “Blast from the Past”? LOL, what’s there to disagree with?
Seems to be the point here actually. The so called leadership and so called media are waging the dog.
All of these proxy wars are nothing but games to the so-called leadership.
It should be obvious to anyone that reads books that we don’t have any leaders that are even 10% as capable as FDR, Churchill or *gasp* Stalin. What we do have:
– The desiccated husk of Joe Biden
– BoJo the Clown
– Green Party Activist Baerbock
– The bimbos that run Sweden and Finland
Who’s on the farm team? Kamala Harris? Rushi Sunak? Greta Thunberg?
The bad news is this is 100% our fault since we voted for these losers. The good news is we still have time to fix it.
“The bad news is this is 100% our fault since we voted for these losers. The good news is we still have time to fix it”. INCORRECT. We didn’t vote for them. That’s the bad news. The rigged elections “voted” for them. Trump was not over-thrown in a stolen election for nothing.
Right,…they are going to use some excuse to lock down,,like Monkey Pox before the Nov. election. I wouldn’t doubt them blaming Russia for this virus.
Putin’s inflation, Putin’s virus. Of course.
And if not, let there be war!
At least, this seems to be their credo.
Things have really changed much in a political sense over many decades. Whenever a leader pops up and puts their national interest first, they are taken down. Just think of the current “enemy no, 1s”. What has changed is there is now less pie to go around and more elite mouths to feed. Plus the interweb allows mass surveillance and manipulation of large swathes of humanity. Interesting times, buckle up!
Juvenal’s Bread & Circuses. “They” have screwed up the bread stuff (inflation and shortages) ….. so now “They” are tripling down on the circuses stuff (e.g. anti-Russia) led by the 3 clowns B., J. and Z.
It may seem unrelated, but have you ever looked at a chart with summer arctic ice volume? Not area or extent, but volume?
That’s the reason I’m unimpressed with all this Ukraine affair I worked in oceanography btw and this chart is the reason why I think we still have 5-15 years before the real problems begin.
and if we ever got control over our governments, we could stop this insane geo-engineering that’s causing this warming.
About Gonzalo Lira, he singles Jews – and only Jews – out for blame in the Ukraine mess. Before his Coach Red Pill account was taken down he did a profile of Victoria Nuland, specifically ascribing her Russophobia to her being Jewish. (She is half-Jewish, by the way, something he failed to note.) There is no question in my mind that he’s an alt-right anti-Semite. Jacob, it may be true that not all neocons are Jewish, and very few Jews are neocons, but you’ll never convince Lira of that.
