Permalink Ex-Russian president issues ‘nuclear catastrophe’ warning

The world will continue to teeter on the brink of disaster until Moscow receives the security guarantees it demands, Dmitry Medvedev believes | Dmitry Medvedev, the former president of Russia and current deputy chair of the country's Security Council, has issued a reminder of the dangers of nuclear brinkmanship amid the Russia-Ukraine conflict. In a lengthy article in the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper, he summarized his thoughts on how the year 2022 has changed the world order forever. 💬 “The only thing that stops our enemies today is the understanding that Russia will be guided by [the doctrine] on nuclear deterrence. And if there is a real threat, we will act,” Medvedev wrote in the article published on Sunday night. In such a grim scenario there will be nobody left to argue about whether that was “a retaliatory strike or a preventive one.” “Therefore, the Western world is balancing between a burning desire to maximally humiliate, dismember and destroy Russia, on the one hand, and the desire to avoid a nuclear apocalypse, on the other,” he explained. Until Russia receives the security guarantees it has demanded, the world “will continue to teeter on the brink of World War III and nuclear catastrophe,” Medvedev wrote, noting that Moscow is doing “everything we can to prevent it.”  Russia presented a list of security proposals to the US and NATO last December, including urging the West to impose a ban on Ukraine entering the military bloc, while insisting that NATO should retreat to its borders of 1997. After the US and NATO flatly refused, saying they would only be interested in limited strategic arms control talks, it became obvious that Moscow had “no one to talk and nothing to negotiate about” Medvedev argued. And when in February “Ukrainian junkies announced their desire to revive their nuclear arsenal,” Moscow had no other choice but to act, he claimed. 💬 “Our world has changed, forever. And the main question remains… what kind of future begins today?” he wrote. “New disarmament agreements are currently unrealistic and unnecessary,” Medvedev reiterated. “The sooner the guarantees of maximum security that suit our country are received, the sooner the situation will normalize.”

Permalink Controlled Explosions of Truth Bombs?

Thomas Sheridan, Christian Morris, Greg Moffitt and myself [John Waters] engage in an epic conversation centred on the film Died Suddenly, the recently-released Stew Peters documentary about the poison-shot deaths and the emerging evidence from embalmers, undertakers and insurance brokers about the destruction of human life that has followed them.

 This is not a ‘review’ of the documentary so much as a discussion as to its implications heading off at multiple tangents. The discussion lasts almost two hours, covering all kinds of acute angles jutting out from the movie and its implications, including:

 Does evidence even matter anymore? Do facts matter? Is it possible for a piece of journalism, no matter how powerful or authoritative, to break though the massed ranks of liars now constituting the mainstream media, and hope to shatter the paradigm of the propagandised pseudo-reality?  Is it possible that Died Suddenly will be the Trojan Horse to take the truth past the sentries into the heart of Western culture?  Or, is the power of the orchestrated Groupthink sufficient to herd people into their required pens so that they will respond to each new intervention, no matter what its revelations, as the narrative demands? Can humanity develop quickly enough the new language it needs to deal with these and other confounding aspects of the present, continuing situation? What might be the implications of the answers to these questions for the condition of our freedom? What are the implications of the Covid episode for the cultural meanings that surround humanity and its mortal state?

 Died Suddenly appears to be reaching a respectably significant audience, despite being dismissed as both ‘conspiracy theory’ by the purchased media, and ‘controlled opposition’ by some of those who claim to oppose the Greatest Crime in History — a telltale paradoxical discordance that inevitably accompanies any genuine useful or threatening work in a time of near-universal industrial lying Or, perhaps it’s really a sign of great potency when you are shot at by both sides.
