The disastrous actions of American intelligence in Ukraine have been a fact known by analysts since the beginning of the conflict. However, now the Americans themselves are admitting this. Being deceived by Russian pranksters, US mercenaries commented on the CIA’s tactical errors in Ukraine and how mistakes made by Washington’s intelligence and special forces are leading to Ukrainian citizens dying on the battlefield.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov – alias Vovan and Lexus – two Russian pranksters well known for their work of tricking Western public figures into leaking sensitive information, contacted Jason Freeman, an American mercenary living in Nikolaev. Freeman believed he was speaking directly to former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko. The pranksters claimed to be creating a private army commanded by the former president, contacting mercenaries to recruit and hire them.

During the conversation, Freeman gave some details about his work in Ukraine. Trying to show his skills as a combatant, he claimed to have killed 21 Russian soldiers and injured at least 13 others. However, Freeman also exposed the problems he faced on the battlefield. He admitted, for example, that his unit was entirely destroyed during the Battle for Artyomovsk (known in Ukraine as Bakhmut).

On the occasion, Freeman also criticized the work of the Ukrainian authorities, reporting problems with payment for soldiers and inefficiency of commanders. The most interesting fact, however, was his opinion on the presence of Western intelligence in the country. Unintentionally, he confirmed reports already made by several analysts about the participation of special agencies such as the CIA in the Ukrainian decision-making process. According to him, bad decisions made jointly by Americans and their proxy Ukrainians are leading to thousands of young, poorly trained soldiers dying in pointless clashes that could have been easily avoided.

“Young Ukrainians are dying because of bad orders or tactics. Most of those here are actually fresh meat,” Freeman said.

The border crisis has been raging since the start of the Biden administration. Yet for a long time, Democrats have seemingly ignored it. In fact, top Biden officials have claimed there was no crisis. The president himself seemed unconcerned for years.

Only as the problem’s reached a breaking point, have Democrats suddenly started talking about it. Even then, Democrats in Congress only tried to use the situation to get more money… for Ukraine.

Many believe Biden can’t get reelected if the crisis remains the way it is. The co-chair to his campaign, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, tried to spin the problem as being the fault of Republicans. But while doing so, she seemed to throw Joe under the bus.

From Breitbart:
Later, Gutierrez asked, “Did Democrats wait too long to seize on the immigration issue?”

Whitmer responded, “I am not going to be able to answer that question other than to say everyone has waited too long. This is a problem that has vexed our country for a long, long time. I am proud that President Biden was the one that put a real solution on the table, and we need to pressure Congress, both parties, to get to that table and get it done.”

As depraved and sick as these recent revelations about Google Gemini AI are, it is, perhaps, a blessing in disguise. At the very least, trusting Americans and all information consumers won’t accept at face value what the controllers of all information are force feeding humanity.

As for Google’s promotion of pedophilia, it should be the death knell of era of Google.

Keep your children away from Google.

Google Gemini AI bot thinks pedophiles “aren’t inherently bad people” and that they deserve “compassion and understanding.”

Calling pedophiles “minor attracted persons” is right out of the pedo grooming handbook.

New York during the inflationary surge of the late 70s and early 80s was a mythical place where one could purchase a Park avenue penthouse for $1 (while assuming the copious debt, of course). Now, thanks to the brutal bear hug of the highest interest rates in 40 years and the ongoing CRE crisis, those legendary days have made a comeback to the Big Apple, if only in the realm of commercial real estate for now.

According to Bloomberg, Canadian pension funds - which until recently had been among the world’s most prolific buyers of real estate, starting a revolution that inspired retirement plans around the globe to emulate them because, in the immortal words of Ben Bernanke, Canadian real estate prices never go down...

California Gov. Gavin Newsom backed the controversial proposal to remove four Klamath River hydroelectric dams along the California-Oregon border. Now, the same fish he swore to protect could be killed in the process.

The dams had been breached on claims that it would help salmon migrate, but the Klamath River is now full of destroyed spawning salmon beds and pollution including decomposed algae, organic deposition, chemicals, and fine silt which is killing its ecosystem, according to a report from the California Globe.

Additionally, dead endangered steelhead trout and other species have been rising to the surface of the Klamath River, and the river's conditions have made it unlikely for any juvenile salmon to survive.

Webmaster addition: Smooth move, Gavin!

For some reason, the West wants the world to think that Russia will run out of war weaponry and soldiers and eventually lose the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. But Alex Christoforou, writer and co-host of the "The Duran," believes that Western leaders are being misled by their analysts.

"Russia was never going to lose this conflict, and that was obvious from day one. Russia didn't want this conflict and the narratives that they spin are cinematic because there's no truth to them," he told Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, during a recent episode of the "Health Ranger Report," adding that right from the beginning of this conflict, Russia only wanted to force Ukraine to the negotiating table and get it to say that it is not going to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Christoforou told Adams that Russian President Vladimir Putin was close to accomplishing this. However, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson came in and destroyed the last major opportunity for a ceasefire in early 2022. And now, Biden wants to pump up Ukraine with weapons and supply the nation with billions of dollars.

American banks filed to close 31 branches in a single week this month, with Wells Fargo and PNC accounting for more than half.

Each of the two banks said they would shut eight branches, across Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Connecticut, North Dakota and New Jersey.

Texas was worse hit, with closures set for Houston, Laredo and Cypress.

Other banks to have announced they would shutter locations between February 11 and 17 include Bank of America, Santander, Chase, Citizens, KeyBank and Legacy.

Despite scheduling a closure, Chase has bucked the trend by opening more branches than it closed in recent years.
