The amount of intrigue, backstabbing and double/ triple agent activity involved in this spectacle is mindblowing. It also sadly calls into question the Babylon 5 prophecy of us inheriting wisened alien souls. Please dont point me towards details about JMS's career, i am fully aware. True art becomes more than its parts and intentions.

The reason we cannot move on from this nonsense is both complicated and simple. Power has an almost irresistable attraction, and in a world where authority itself is a prize, society will tend in that direction.

We were capable of great things but got captured by outside influences.

None of these geopolitics matter since they dont respect human nature. Putin does slightly better then some but its all marginal. CBDC's worldwide are to be avoided at all costs. If those get implemented without resistance we are kind of done.

I hate to be the harbinger of doom, but certain parties in 'control' of this world have truly sided with Sorath.

I don't know if you've already seen it but I'm sharing it anyway.

Yep, caught this as well tonight.

Found the full interview, note how one of the interviews immediately goes off on him going "wait and minute!!! where is your evidence!!" and when the professor speaks to that fact... the lady comes in to say... "well... uh let's not talk about that" priceless!! everybody knows!


Here's a translation from an article in Spanish about it

Jeffrey Sachs, a renowned economist at Columbia University (USA) and former advisor to three UN secretaries general, affirmed that the recent emergency in Nord Stream was the result of deliberate actions by the United States. "The destruction of the Nord Stream pipeline [...] is an action of the United States, perhaps of the United States and Poland," he said in an interview for Bloomberg TV.

Upon expressing this opinion, the analyst was immediately confronted by one of the interviewers, who demanded that he present evidence. The economist then claimed that there is radar data indicating that U.S. military helicopters, based in Poland, were circling a nearby area when the accident occurred. He also mentioned previous threats, on the part of the White House, to shut down Nord Stream in one way or another.

Jeffrey Sachs recalled the statement of U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who called the destruction of the pipeline "a tremendous opportunity." "That's a strange way to talk, if you are concerned about piracy in vitally important international infrastructure," the expert noted.

The analyst stressed that "in the West you are not allowed to say these things." "But the fact is that when I talk to people around the world, they all think it was the U.S. that did it," he concluded.

Sachs also asserted that the world "is entering the most unstable geopolitical era in many decades," in what he described as a major geopolitical conflict not only between the U.S. and Russia, but also between the U.S. and China. In addition to lamenting the absence of efforts to mitigate the crisis, the expert analyst highlighted the "tremendous amount of provocations" undertaken by Washington. "We are breaking any sense of stability," he said.

And then there's this, Russia extending yet another olive branch

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak has stated that the Nord Stream pipelines, which suffered four gas leaks after Monday's emergencies, can be repaired, but it will take time and money.

Of course, it is technically possible to rebuild the infrastructure, but it requires time and appropriate funds. I am sure that the right opportunities will be found," the senior official stressed in an interview with the program 'Moscow. Kremlin. Putin' on Rossiya 1 channel.

He also indicated that the inoperability of the pipelines is in the interest of the countries that opposed the project. "As of today we start from the fact that, first of all, we have to find out who did it, and we are sure that certain countries that were expressing their positions before are interested in this [that the pipelines are inoperable]," he said.

Novak recalled that, at the time, both the United States, Ukraine and Poland "were talking about the fact that this infrastructure will not operate" and argued that the aforementioned nations "are going to do everything possible" to prevent supplies through this route.

Russian nuclear submarine armed with 'doomsday' weapon disappears from Arctic harbor: report​



A top-of-the-line Russian nuclear-powered submarine has gone missing from its harbor in the Arctic along with its rumored "doomsday weapon," according to multiple reports.

NATO has reportedly warned members that Russia's Belgorod submarine no longer appeared to be operating out of its White Sea base, where it has been active since July.

Officials warned that Russia may plan to test Belgorod's "Poseidon" weapons system, a drone equipped with a nuclear bomb that Russia has claimed is capable of creating a "radioactive tsunami," according to Italian media.

The drone can be deployed from the submarine at any time and detonated at a depth of 1 kilometer near a coastal city.
Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it.

The 600-ft. submarine was delivered to the Russian Navy in July as part of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s top-secret program that aims to develop and operate a series of a new class of "super weapons."

The Belgorod submarine was delivered to the Russian Navy in July as part of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s (foreground, right) top-secret program that aims to develop and operate a series of a new class of "super weapons."


Rebekah Koffler, a strategic intelligence expert and author of "Putin’s Playbook," warned that Russia's use of such a weapon would only come as a last resort "in the event that Russia and the U.S. are in a direct kinetic war and Russia is losing."

Koffler said the device is likely not to be operational until 2027, but Putin may be testing it as a means to intimidate both Ukraine its NATO allies in the West. Putin has warned that Russia's potential use of nuclear weapons is "not a bluff."
Belgorod's location remains publicly unknown as of Monday, a situation that is not particularly surprising to Koffler. Russian submarines have some of the best stealth capabilities in the world and have even entered U.S. waters undetected in the past, according to Koffler.

Story continues

Edit
"There have been times when Russian nuclear-powered attack submarines, armed with long-range cruise missiles, operated undetected for weeks close to U.S. shores," Koffler told Fox News Digital.

One incident in the early 2010s saw a submarine get detected only when it was leaving U.S. waters.

"My colleagues from the Office of Naval Intelligence got a serious dressing down by a four-star general" following the event, Koffler said.



Putin 'deploys Belgorod nuclear submarine which carries Poseidon underwater drone capable of unleashing radioactive tsunamis which lay waste to enemy coastlines'​

  • Russian nuclear submarine Belgorod has left its White Sea base, it is claimed
  • NATO warns sub might be on mission to test Poseidon drone, Italian media said
  • Poseidon is a doomsday device designed to trigger a 1,600ft nuclear tsunami
  • It comes after Putin threatened the West with nukes over the war in Ukraine


    Vladimir Putin may have deployed a huge nuclear submarine carrying its latest doomsday weapon, NATO has warned its members.

    The Belgorod has disappeared from its home base in the Arctic Circle and may be on its way to the Kara Sea to test the Poseidon nuke, a NATO warning note leaked to Italian media over the weekend has suggested.

    Poseidon is a drone that is said to be capable of travelling huge distances underwater before detonating with enough force to trigger a 1,600ft nuclear tsunami designed to drown and irradiate coastal cities.

North Korea fires ballistic missile over Japan for first time since 2017​


1664872385183.png


North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile over Japan for the first time since 2017 on Tuesday, the government said, a dramatic escalation that prompted Tokyo to issue a rare alert for residents to take cover.

Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada said the weapon, believed to be a Hwasong-12 IRBM, flew 4,600 kilometers — the longest distance ever traveled by a North Korean missile — flying for about one minute over Aomori Prefecture before eventually landing in the Pacific Ocean some 3,200 km from Japan.




“North Korea's recent series of actions, including its persistent and escalating launches, threaten the peace and security of the region and the globe, and are a serious challenge to the entire international community, including our own country,” Hamada told reporters.

Pyongyang has conducted a flurry of missile tests at an unprecedented rate this year. Since Sept. 25, it has conducted launches five times, firing off a total of eight missiles — a frenetic pace that has rekindled memories of the “fire and fury” period five years ago that some say took the world to the brink of nuclear catastrophe.

Hamada said the launch over Japan was “as an extremely problematic act from the perspective of ensuring the safety of not only aircraft and ships, but also the residents of the area where the ballistic missile is believed to have passed over.”

“Japan cannot tolerate such a move, and we have made a protest to North Korea through its embassy in Beijing, condemning it in the strongest possible terms,” he added.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, meanwhile, also slammed Pyongyang’s spate of launches, calling them “a series of outrageous acts.”

Kishida said he had instructed government officials to gather and analyze information on the latest launch while working with relevant countries, including its top ally, the United States.

Following the launch, Japan’s J-Alert warning system was also activated for the first time since 2017, with alerts issued for Hokkaido and Aomori Prefecture, as well as Tokyo’s Izu islands, urging residents to take shelter.

In a hastily arranged news conference earlier Tuesday, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said that there had been no reports of damage to airplanes or ships, adding that the government was working to confirm that there was no damage from any falling debris.

Matsuno, the government’s top spokesman, also said that the Self-Defense Forces had “completely monitored and tracked the launch from immediately after until when it landed,” adding that the SDF did not take measures to shoot down the missile since no damage to Japanese territory had been anticipated.

In Seoul, South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol condemned the launch, saying that it would be met with a “resolute” response from the country, its allies and the international community.

Yoon stressed that Pyongyang’s continued provocations would only serve to strengthen security cooperation with the U.S., Japan and other partners outside the region, according to the Presidential Office.

The White House, meanwhile, blasted the North’s “dangerous and reckless decision to launch a long-range ballistic missile over Japan.”

“This action is destabilizing and shows the DPRK’s blatant disregard for United Nations Security Council resolutions and international safety norms,” National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson said, using the acronym for the North’s formal name.

Senior officials from the U.S. and its allies in Japan and South Korea had spoken about “appropriate and robust joint and international responses,” the White House said, though it was unclear what those might be.

The launch over Japan — seen as a far more provocative step than its recent spate of shorter-range missile tests — was the seventh time the nuclear-armed nation had sent a ballistic missile over the Japanese archipelago.

Analysts concurred with the Japanese assessment that the weapon was likely to have been a Hwasong-12, which has a similar range. North Korea has twice lobbed a Hwasong-12 over Japan, the last time occurring in 2017, sparking outrage in Tokyo and triggering the J-Alert system.

Pyongyang also tested one of the weapons on Jan. 30, firing it on a so-called lofted trajectory that saw it fly as high as 2,000 km, while traveling 800 km before landing in the Sea of Japan.

“Based on the range, apogee and flight time, the North Korea missile was a Hwasong-12 IRBM,” Jeffery Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Middlebury Institute, wrote on Twitter.

With little hope of long-stalled denuclearization talks between the North and the U.S. resuming in the near future — and the war in Ukraine and tensions with China dominating the headlines — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be seeing the value in conducting more provocative weapons tests, experts say.

“By now, North Korea’s short-range missile tests must suffer diminishing returns in terms of technical advancement, domestic political value and international signaling,” said Leif-Eric Easley, a professor at Ewha University in Seoul.

But, Easley added, a missile fired over Japan represents "a significant escalation over its recent provocations.”

Still, J. Berkshire Miller, a senior fellow with the Japan Institute of International Affairs, said that while the launch “is clearly a signal” from Pyongyang of its unhappiness with the U.S., “the tests are not purely theatrics to get American attention, and are a continued attempt to perfect capabilities and bolster confidence in their deterrent power.”

Perhaps more concerning, Kim may still have yet another means of ramping up his provocations.

According to U.S. and South Korean officials, the only thing preventing North Korea from conducting its seventh nuclear test — possibly of a smaller, battlefield warhead known as a tactical nuclear weapon — is a greenlight from Kim.

South Korea’s spy agency said last week that the North had readied an underground tunnel at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site, and that it could conduct a blast sometime between Oct. 16 and Nov. 7. Such a time frame would position any test between an important congress of China’s Communist Party and November’s U.S. midterm congressional elections.

“Pyongyang is still in the middle of a provocation and testing cycle and is likely waiting until after China’s mid-October Communist Party congress to conduct an even more significant test,” Easley said, adding that the Kim regime is developing weapons such as tactical nuclear warheads and submarine-launched ballistic missiles as part of a long-term strategy "to outrun South Korea in an arms race and drive wedges among U.S. allies.”

They're going all in on the Red October theme ...

Is the US sending a signal through Zelensky to traitors in Russia to eliminate Putin?

This assumption is based on the fact that on September 30, the last day of the referendum, the United States imposed sanctions against Nabiullina, the Federation Council and relatives of Medvedev, Mishustin, Sobyanin.

The traitors from this list did not cope with their tasks. For example, Nabiulina failed to bring down the Russian economy. And behind such officials are corporate forces that can cause unrest in Russia. And now, if they want to prove that they are still serving the west, they need to do what they ask.

(I do not consider everyone on this list to be traitors)

Perhaps this is the beginning of the stage that Svetlana Dragan prophesies.

These are my thoughts on what's going on.

Or maybe Zelensky was just offended? :lol:

From Pepe Escobar's VK:
THE EMPIRE OF PIPELINE BOMBING
CAN'T EVEN BOMB A PIPELINE PROPERLY

Confirmed by Gazprom:

Line B of Nord Stream 2 was NOT damaged by Pipeline Terror last week.

Nord Stream IS a marvel of technology. Even Line A of NS2 and both strings of Nord Stream were only PUNCTURED. The pipes are tremendously strong.

All that is part of my upcoming column.

“Gazprom is working to depressurize Line B of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to reduce potential environmental risks from possible gas leaks. If the decision to start gas deliveries via Nord Stream 2 string B is made, natural gas will be pumped into the pipeline."

That opens a whole new chapter. Everything will hang on the German government being forced by General Winter to grow a pair, act on their national interests and screw the Empire.

Here's the statement from Gazprom he's referring to: Gazprom reports stoppage of gas leaks at Nord Stream pipelines

87% of world doesn’t support West’s new cold war on Russia


Two ex US diplomats admitted 87% of the world’s population refuses to enforce the West’s sanctions on Russia, showing neutrality over the proxy war in Ukraine. They said “the outbreak of Cold War II” has led countries “to become increasingly multi-aligned,” especially in the Global South.

Two former US diplomats have acknowledged that the vast majority of the global population does not support the West’s new cold war on Russia.

In a Newsweek op-ed titled “Nearly 90 Percent of the World Isn’t Following Us on Ukraine,” ex diplomats Michael Gfoeller and David H. Rundell wrote:

While the United States and its closest allies in Europe and Asia have imposed tough economic sanctions on Moscow, 87 percent of the world’s population has declined to follow us. Economic sanctions have united our adversaries in shared resistance. Less predictably, the outbreak of Cold War II, has also led countries that were once partners or non-aligned to become increasingly multi-aligned.

They acknowledged that new multilateral institutions like the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the BRICS are growing, and offer new opportunities for countries in the Global South.

The diplomats also commented on the weakening of the Washington-controlled financial system and growing de-dollarization:

The dollar’s reserve currency status remains a pillar of the global economic order, but trust in that order has been damaged. Economic sanctions have weaponized parts of the international banking and insurance sectors including the SWIFT fund transfer system. Assets have been seized and commodity contracts canceled. Calls for de-dollarization have become louder. When Russia demanded energy payments in rubles, yuan or UAE Dirhams, China and India complied.

Many Asian economies are now being hit by both rising oil prices and the depreciation of their own currency against the dollar. As a result, they are expanding their use of bilateral currency swaps which allow them to trade among themselves in their own currencies. Eighty years ago the British pound lost its preeminent position among the world’s currencies. This is precisely what America’s adversaries are trying to do to the dollar and if the Saudis ever stop pricing oil in dollars, they may very well succeed.

Multipolarista has previously reported on the decline in US dollar hegemony.

The article by these two former US diplomats provides further support for the analysis Multipolarista published in March, detailing how “Many Global South countries blame US/NATO for Ukraine war, not Russia.”

The Wall Street Journal likewise acknowledged these inconvenient facts in a report in April titled “Anti-Russia Alliance Is Missing a Big Bloc: The Developing World.”

The mainstream corporate newspaper wrote, “Western leaders seeking to build a global coalition to isolate Russia over its war on Ukraine are facing pushback from the world’s largest developing nations, including the democracies of India, Brazil and South Africa.”


This reality has led some Western pundits to publish condescending, borderline racist editorials attacking the Global South.

“No event this century has done as much as the Ukraine war to expose the difference in outlook between the west and … the ‘rest,'” commented conservative Financial Times columnist Janan Ganesh in June.

He lamented that “Russia retains a net positive reputation in Egypt, Vietnam, India and other countries,” and that “Pro-Russia protests have flared up in west and central Africa.”

Situation along line of contact near Krasny Liman stabilizing, DPR leader reports​

It is reported that the enemy certainly keeps trying to break through

MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. The situation is stabilizing along the line of contact in the direction of Krasny Liman, leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin told Channel One on Tuesday.
"The frontline situation is stabilizing there. The enemy certainly keeps trying to break through, but their forces are not what they used to be, because certain reserves have been pulled from near Artyomovsk and Slavyansk," he said, adding: "The allied forces have done a good job."
The allied forces have been building a major line of defense near Kremennaya in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), located northeast of Krasny Liman, the DPR leader said. "According to the information on the ground that I have been receiving, the enemy does not stand a chance [of advancing towards Kremennaya]," he reported.
The DPR leader also said Ukrainian forces were retreating in certain areas of Artyomovsk (Ukrainian name Bakhmut), while the allied forces had been gaining ground there. Ukrainian troops had pulled reserves from the direction of Artyomovsk, too, when they attacked Krasny Liman, he specified.

Earlier, the LPR People’s Militia officer Andrey Marochko told TASS that Ukrainian forces were trying to break through defenses, hit with colossal losses, but that the situation in that direction was still under control of the allied forces. On October 1, the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov, said that allied troops had been pulled out of Krasny Liman to avoid encirclement.

Standing ovation at the French assembly for the Uki ambassador in Paris 🤮 .

"Well...I believe this video is self-explanatory, don't expect anything [from the politicians]."


🤡 Déjà vu Traitor effect...

Reminds me very much of when the US congress went into a vigorous outburst of ecstasy, with cheers and ovations, during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "little" speech back in 2011 🤮
 
I guess the Russian Armed Forces did need mobilisation, and more equipment

1664902178806.png
The AFU occupies settlements abandoned by the Russian Armed Forces.

According to reports from the ground in northern Kherson Region, the Ukrainian side occupied Davydov Brod, Malaya Aleksandrovka, Velyka Aleksandrovka, Novovodmytrivka, Staroselye, Novonikolaivka, Cherereshneve, Novovoskresenske, Mayske, Petropavlovka, Trifonovka, Novovasilyevka, Chervonoye, Novohryhorivka, Novaya Kamianka, Pyatikhatki, Sablukovka, Kachkarovka and others.

It is noted that a number of villages have been abandoned by the Russian side in order to avoid encirclement. At the moment, it is not quite clear where the new Russian defence line will be established.

Ukrainian troops have less than 30 km to reach one of the most important targets of the Ukrainian armed forces in this direction, Beryslav.



The fact that the Uki can concentrate large forces for a breakthrough in the offensive area, strike two main strikes simultaneously, knock out artillery and work in our rear areas by SRG, speaks of their level of operational skill and technical equipment. If we, knowing that Uki is concentrating large forces and preparing a strike, do not take the necessary measures, do not create defensive lines, including the use of civilian equipment, do not act on enemy communication routes in their at least immediate rear, do not mine possible approach routes, including using MLRS (or do it formally, for a tick), then it indicates our level of operational art.

Once again, we have forces to defend ourselves. The enemy has not created an overwhelming superiority in manpower, much less in equipment. Those defensive lines where we act more or less competently are not being breached. Those units and subunits that do not abandon equipment and do not run to the rear, confidently hold their positions, like the 126th Coastal Defense Brigade of the Black Sea Fleet. Now the main question (and this is always the main question of any war) is competent logistics, which includes replenishment of units with personnel, withdrawal of shabby units for rest and replenishment, and not only uninterrupted supply of ammunition.

Now for the news from the front. Yesterday at 10pm an enemy column moved from Torskoye to Yampolovka, about 20 vehicles. Our UAVs spotted it and set up a jet. After the first strike, the column dispersed, 10 vehicles were damaged, 5 fled and another 5, also in column, continued further to Yampolovka. They were hit by gunfire. Direct hits have already begun, in the third and fifth car. Ours worked competently, catching the enemy on the move.



In case you were wondering, the crisis in the Kryvyi Rih direction was again caused by a huge outnumbering of manpower and equipment by the AFU, not by some military genius.

Two, far from full-blooded, battalions on a 20+ km front, when according to the textbook it should be 10. You had to try to bring everything to such a situation and then be surprised.
