Thought for the day

"All the time—such is the tragi-comedy of our situation—we continue to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible… In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." -- C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

Shortly after noon on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas.

By the fall of 1963, President John F. Kennedy and his political advisers were preparing for the next presidential campaign. Although he had not formally announced his candidacy, it was clear that President Kennedy was going to run and he seemed confident about his chances for re-election.

At the end of September, the president traveled west, speaking in nine different states in less than a week. The trip was meant to put a spotlight on natural resources and conservation efforts. But JFK also used it to sound out themes—such as education, national security, and world peace—for his run in 1964.

"So, Trump announces he's running for president, and the Republicans take the House and tee up investigations into the Biden family, and suddenly a special counsel is appointed."

“FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets.” – The Washington Post

On November 18, the Polish foreign ministry stated that it will not allow a Russian delegation to attend the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) summit next month. OSCE is one of the most prominent regional security organizations in the world and its stated goal is to establish a viable security framework that would prevent conflicts in Europe and beyond. However, the reality is a bit different from the organization’s publicly altruistic intentions. The Associated Press asked the Polish foreign ministry if Russia would be denied entry to the OSCE’s December conference and Spokesman Lukasz Jasina responded that it would.

Russia, one of the most important members of the organization, as well as a key player in European security, is being denied entry due to politics. The very fact that this is even possible calls into question the purpose of OSCE or any similar organization dominated by the political West. This year, Poland is chairing the 57-nation organization, with the annual ministerial conference scheduled to be held in the city of Lodz on December 1-2. When asked if Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would be attending the conference, Jasina responded, “We are not expecting a visit by minister Lavrov to Lodz.”

“Delegations should be adjusted to the current EU regulations and not include persons that are sanctioned by the European Union,” according to an announcement by the Polish OSCE Chairmanship. “…a number of Russian nationals were added to the list of sanctioned individuals, including Minister Lavrov,” it added.

Ukrainian troops have shelled Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant over the last two days, Renat Karchaa, an adviser at Russia’s state nuclear operator Rosenergoatom, claimed on Sunday.

Karchaa said the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant was targeted earlier in the day, following a barrage fired at the facility on Saturday, when six projectiles hit the cooling system of one of the rectors and two struck the radioactive waste storage. He added that the employees were unharmed.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the plant was shelled twice on Sunday, while 11 “large-caliber artillery shells” were fired on Saturday. The ministry said that projectiles fell close to the reactors, and that the fire was also directed at power lines.

“It is impossible to assess the consequences of the shelling because there is a danger of new attacks,” Karchaa said. The plant had not been targeted that much since late September. according to the official.

The board overseeing a southeastern Arizona county whose Republican leaders had hoped to recount all Election Day ballots on Friday delayed certifying the results of last week’s vote after hearing from a trio who alleged that counting machines were not certified.

The three men, or some combination of them, have filed at least four cases raising similar claims before the Arizona Supreme Court since 2021, seeking to have the state’s 2020 election results thrown out. The court has dismissed all of them for lack of evidence, waiting too long after the election was certified or asking for relief that could not be granted, in increasingly harsh language.

But Tom Rice, Brian Steiner and Daniel Wood managed to persuade the two Republicans who control the Cochise County board of supervisors that their claims were valid enough for them to delay the certification until a Nov. 28 deadline.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were "potentially" moles who informed the Justice Department about classified documents being held at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago compound, the former attorney for Trump Michael Cohen claimed. Last week, Ivanka did not attend her father's announcement about his plans to run in the 2024 presidential elections, telling Fox News afterward "I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics."

The Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System (VAERS) has been a well-spring of information about the ugly reality of COVID-19 "Vaccines."  This past week, the data in VAERS was "purged" of European information, at the request of "European Regulators." 

The deliberate removal of European information caused the following data changes:

The "Cancer Signal," was halved

The "Myocarditis, Dose 3 Response Signal" was lost, AND;

994 "Spontaneous Abortions/Still-Births" were dropped.

A cover-up of Vaccine-related injury data is now in full progress.

The report below, by Jessica Rose, provides the details . . .

The eruption of the Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka began on November 20. According to the Kamchatka volcanic eruption response group, a plume of ash emissions spread 10 km in a north-easterly direction towards Ozernoye Bay. There are no settlements on his way.

Earlier in the day it was reported that Shiveluch is ready for a powerful eruption. The Institute of Volcanology and Seismology of the FEB RAS warned that it is dangerous to approach the volcano at a distance of up to 15 km. The ash emission can reach 20 km in a dimeter and reach the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky –Ust-Kamchatsk highway.

Shiveluch is one of the largest volcanoes in Kamchatka. It consists of three main structures: the Old Shiveluch volcano, the ancient caldera and the active Young Shiveluch volcano.

Kiev does not have the resources and military force to attack the Crimea. This is how Viktor Bondarev, chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, reacted to the words of the head of the office of the Ukrainian President Andrei Ermak about plans to take control of the peninsula in the Telegram channel.

On November 20, Ermak said that Kiev plans to conduct a military campaign to retake Crimea. At the same time, the politician did not announce the exact dates of the planned offensive on the peninsula.

The senator called Kiev's statements on Crimea reckless and arrogant, stressing that Russia returned the peninsula in the spring of 2014 and the residents of the territory themselves wished to become Russians.

Zero-click refers to software that can download the contents of a target’s computer or mobile device without the need for tricking the target into clicking on it. The FBI operated the software from a warehouse in New Jersey.

World War III is America’s war to capture Russia, and the way to do it is to position its missiles so close to Moscow that it can then declare “Checkmate!” and the missiles would take just 5 minutes to annihilate The Kremlin. Only Ukraine is that close to Moscow — close enough so that from missile-launch to annihilating Moscow would be so fast that Russia’s central command would be dead before they’d be able to confirm the launch and then launch their retaliatory missiles.

This is the reality: America’s goal now isn’t to take Iran, nor to take Ukraine; it now is to take Russia itself; and this is the reason why when the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact ended its side of the Cold War in 1991, America’s side secretly continued on its Cold War, in order ultimately to conquer Russia itself.

On 30 June 2017,  journalist Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian headlined at the neoconservative Foreign Policy magazine, “64 Years Later, CIA Finally Releases Details of Iranian Coup: New documents reveal how the CIA attempted to call off the failing coup — only to be salvaged at the last minute by an insubordinate spy.”

That “insubordinate spy” was Kim Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt’s grandson and a member of America’s Deep State — the group of perhaps only a thousand extremely wealthy individuals who actually control the post-WW-II (post 1945) U.S. Government. Sometimes, even the U.S. President himself doesn’t know what the Deep State are doing. But President Eisenhower knew very well, and he was among the Deep State’s top agents. His Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and brother Allen Dulles (CIA chief) also knew, and approved.

An adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has described the idea of negotiations with Russia as a “bizarre” proposal. Mykhaylo Podolyak said a move towards a peace deal would be to “capitulate to the country that is losing” and something the Kremlin would likely use to “simply stall for time”.

Negotiations between the two warring nations broke down soon after the invasion began, but calls for peace talks from the US have risen again over fears Vladimir Putin might escalate the conflict after his military was forced into a series of humiliating retreats. Ukraine has inflicted sweeping counter-attacks in recent months and Mr Zelensky has vowed to retake all its occupied territory.

Mr Podolyak said: “When you have the initiative on the battlefield, it’s slightly bizarre to receive proposals like: ‘You will not be able to do everything by military means anyway, you need to negotiate’.” He added that Russia had not made “any direct proposal” to Kyiv for talks.

Prince Andrew took a secret trip to Bahrain last week in order to try and secure a role as an intermediary between the West and Gulf states during the energy crisis, sources have claimed. The Duke of York reportedly flew on a private jet, owned by a Swiss billionaire, to the country. The Prince also has been “close” with the royal family of the country, sources said, and stayed in an extremely luxurious hotel while he was there. Prince Andrew has taken a backseat to frontline royal duties since his connection with paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein emerged in 2019, as well as accusations of sexual abuse by trafficking victim Virginia Giuffre - which the Duke has consistently and strongly denied.

“The Ukrainians are in bad shape… It won’t be long before the Ukrainians run out of food. It won’t be long before they freeze… They have done all that we can reasonably expect them to do. It’s time to negotiate…. before the offensive begins, because once it begins, there will be no further discussion between Moscow and Kiev until it is over to the satisfaction of the Russians.” Colonel Douglas MacGregor, “War in Ukraine; Quiet Before the Storm”, 15 minute-mark

“Strictly speaking, we haven’t started anything yet.” Russian President Vladimir Putin
