Last weekend was a busy weekend as protests got underway that brought tens of thousands of people onto the streets to in the case of Italy demand an end to weapons delivery to Ukraine to Anti NATO protests in France and Germany and a rally for peace in Ukraine in Berlin
As is normal anything not fitting the narrative does not get covered in the MSM.

Seymour Hersh the veteran US investigate journalist who in the past broke many major stories from the Watergate, CIA Assassinations, My Lai Massacre, Israeli nuclear weapons, Abu Ghraib, Syrian False Flag Chemical Weapon, Killing Bin Laden. And now he strikes again with an article on how the Americans carried out the destruction of the Russian-German Nordstream I and II pipelines.
Nordstream I was supplying the German economy with huge quantities of gas and Nordstream II which had been completed but not yet put into action was permanently put of action by the sabotage. This forced Germany to buy far more expensive liquidified natural gas, making their industry far less competitive and cutting off any reapproachment with Russia. The US government had repeatedly tried to block the construction of NordStream II and had stated one way or another it would not go ahead. Yet when the pipeline was blown up, Germany did nothing and took in lying down. An once proud nation reduced to an obedient subservient vassal state
In Hersh's article which he published on his substack because mainstream media has long ceased to carry any truth and this was the most effective way to get the story out, documents step by step on how they planned, implemented and carried out the attack. The consequence of this news story have rippled around the world but not in the collective West that have done their level best to make sure the news was not reported. The opening paragraph begins:

Reuters has reported that on Oct 28th there were thousands of Czech protestors in Prague calling for the government to resign and for direct talks to be held with Russia to supply gas. The suicidal sanctions are hurting and thankfully at least in some places people are beginning to realize the NATO orchestrated war and orchestrated economic suicide are not in their interests.
In the meantime, the Irish government is attempting to bribe the population as they just announced a package of over € 1,200 million to subsidize energy bills this year and early next by paying off €200 of 2.2 million households for the next 3 billing periods. People might remember how hard the government fought to bring in Water Charges which was only going to bring in €150 million. Yet now barely without asking they are forking OUT ten times that much. The question is Why ? read full story / add a comment

The world still applauds the great effort that our government made in advocating negotiations for peace that led to a settlement, and the 1998 Good Friday Agreement on this island.
So why is our present government, rejecting neutrality, and refusing to lead the campaign for negotiations for peace to end the horrific Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Instead, we are parroting pro-western/NATO war propaganda, that Ukraine can win this war, with more weapons, and that at the same time we can help destroy the Russian economy. read full story / add a comment
Gonzalo Lira: War going badly for Ukraine. US likely to assassinate Zelensky to create chaos in Ukraine for Russia
international / anti-war / imperialism / opinion/analysis Monday July 25, 2022 00:09 by T 1 video file
A recent video from Gonzalo Lira who lives in Ukraine and has been making regular videos on the war has suggested the US is likely to assassinate the puppet leader of Ukraine, Zelensky because the war is going very badly for them and the disaster for the US and NATO is going to make Afghanistan look mild. They need to turn the tables and generate as much chaos and problems as possible in Ukraine so as to dump it at the feet of Russia and hope that it bleeds them dry.
In many ways this was the game-plan of the NATO provoked war all along. read full story / add a comment

This is an account by a Chechen Soldier in Mariupol recalling his first combat experience against the Ukraine Neo Nazi Azov Battalion who have been taking hostage Ukrainians as human shields and how this became a reality for him.

It’s possible that before I came here, I doubted [the stories] a little bit. But back then when we freed the first prisoners from the house, which was directly situated nearby the Azovstal’ [factory], when those prisoners and civilians came out from the basements, they hugged and kissed us. And told us that they are happy to see us. They cried with tears in their eyes! I then realized that I ended up exactly for… (holding back emotions) what was needed. And I don’t doubt one drop that it was the right idea.read full story / add a comment
Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .
A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.
Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.read full story / add a comment

As usual she has more guts than anyone else and cuts through the relentless BS
The EU economic war against Russia does nothing to help innocent Ukrainian citizens, victims of this illegal war. Russia is undeterred, while EU citizens face disastrous inflation, rocketing energy costs, and a historic decline in living standards. This is madness…

The Russian Ukraine war is now is over a week long and for many who are trying to understand what it is all about that is proving difficult. The sheer scale of the relentless propaganda is astounding and the hate that is being encouraged and fueled for all things Russian is frightening. Once again as with the Covid scamdemic the way in which people have lapped up the fear porn and refused to carry out any level of critical thinking is scary.
One thing that is obvious to those who stop and think for a moment is the complete absence of any kind of context and background to the whole thing. We are just being relentlessly push to believe that Putin in Hitler 2.0 and it all hinges on him and that he is evil. There is also outright hate and racism being whipped up and there are many reports of Russian students being booted off their course and various Russians being cancelled. The aim here is to rebalance things a bit and provide that context so that a more informed view can be made of the situation read full story / add a comment

Wag the Dog?
With every major crisis - be it a fake pandemic or a manufactured war - comes further confirmation that the average man or woman on the street is hypnotised and has long lost the ability to think critically.
Without taking as much as 30 seconds to step out from the real-time MK Ultra mind-control projects of social media, the vast majority are jumping headfirst into MSM-driven emotionally-charged dialectics and reductive good-versus-evil narratives.read full story / add a comment
