US Secretary Blinken's psychopathological incapacity to negotiate with Russia revealed through content analysis

No posting time has been indicated by the State Department. Watch Blinken read from a written script for the first six and a half minutes of his 29 and a half-minute briefing.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed publicly in Geneva on Friday, January 21, that he will not negotiate a no-war agreement with the Russians because he cannot. This is already understood by the Russians; by the French and Germans; and by several senior officials of the Biden Administration.

The evidence of Blinken's incapacity is in the words he says.

It was during the last world war, when US policymakers had next to no intelligence on how their German counterparts were thinking and what they were intending, that a group of American sociologists were engaged by the War Department, as the Pentagon was called then, to do what was called content analysis of German propaganda. One of the sociologists, a Russian émigré Nathan Leites, went on to apply the same method to Soviet publications in order to uncover what Leites called the operational code of the Politburo. That was in 1951. It was immediately used by US negotiators during the Korean War armistice negotiations which began in July of that year and ran for two years. By then Leites had produced a sequel, A Study of Bolshevism. Both were paid for and published by RAND, the think-tank created in 1945 by the US Air Force, the Douglas Aircraft Company, and the War Department.

Comment: And the West's position of pathological belligerence is also reflected in their actions. Meanwhile Russia along with its multilateral allies are showing through an array of drills, meetings and deals that they are willing to work together to neutralise the threat that the increasingly desperate US and its allies pose to world stability: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Kazakhstan on Fire: Why US vs Russia 'Great Game' Could Spark Global Economic Collapse

Alberta Canada inadvertently published (and quickly deleted) health data revealing that MORE THAN HALF of vaccinated deaths have been counted as UNVACCINATED

In yet another absolute bombshell revelation the government of Alberta, Canada exposed itself this week when it accidentally published damning evidence that exposes how the public health authorities have been manipulating the Covid-19 statistics.

After seemingly realizing what it had just done, the corrupt Canadian province quickly scrambled to delete the incriminating data off their website, but, thanks to internet sleuths like Twitter user Metatron - and his substack post, we have the receipts.

Comment: They've been fudging the numbers from the very beginning of this "pandemic," but this little slip on their part really reveals just how egregious their manipulations are. And make no mistake - this isn't isolated to Alberta.

The British Embassy in Ukraine announced that it will withdraw some staffers from Kiev.
London has commenced withdrawing diplomatic staff amid fears that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent.

Britain has ordered the withdrawal of staff from its embassy in Kiev "in response to growing threat" from Moscow, as tensions on the Ukrainian-Russian border continue to remain high amid Western fears that the Kremlin is planning an invasion.

In an update published on the website of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), it was revealed that London has opted to "temporarily" withdraw some staff and their dependants from Kiev, noting that the embassy would remain open and continue providing assistance to British nationals in Ukraine.

'Pandemic' narrative over - false flag in Ukraine next?

During the past week, the world has looked on as the now two-year long COVID-19 mainstream media narrative collapsed almost instantaneously.

In timing that cannot be described as anything less than suspect, in the same week that the World Economic Forum held its virtual Davos Agenda event, Ireland and Britain announced the sudden and immediate ending of virtually all Covid measures and the World Health Organisation called for the end of Covid-related travel restrictions, with the organisation also stating that the end of the 'Pandemic' may be in sight, in stark contrast to a recent announcement that such a prediction was premature.

With the theme of the World Economic Forum's 2022 annual summit meeting, due to be held in May and the first in-person meeting of the forum since 2019, being 'Working Together, Restoring Trust' the optimistic among us may say that there has been an acceptance amongst the global elite that the growing awareness worldwide of the corporate power-grab over public life that the past two years has entailed, as well as the steady march towards a digital ID system as envisaged in Klaus Schwab's concept of the fourth industrial revolution via the use of vaccine passports, has become so widespread that it is no longer feasible to continue the current COVID-19 media narrative.

However, the sudden dropping of COVID-19 by the corporate media also presents the opportune moment to immediately switch its focus to something else - a possibly imminent false flag attack in Ukraine, used as a pretext for the Western-backed Kiev government to launch an attack on the breakaway pro-Russian republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in the east of the country, thus triggering an armed conflict between Ukraine and Moscow, one that has the strong possibility for worldwide ramifications.

Anti-lockdown protesters smash EU diplomatic service HQ in Brussels

Anti-lockdown protesters smash EU diplomatic service HQ
Fierce clashes between protesters and police in Brussels saw damage dealt to the European External Action Service building.

Chaotic scenes unfolded on the streets of the Belgian capital, Brussels, on Sunday, as thousands of protesters joined a mass march against Covid-19 health passes and other restrictions introduced by European governments in the name of combating the pandemic.

Videos captured by RT France journalist Charles Baudry showed white-helmeted police officers in riot gear blocking streets with barricades and deploying water cannons to disperse the crowds. All the while, black-clad masked protesters were pelting the police with various projectiles, including planks they had apparently acquired from demolishing a café's terrace.

Comment: Note the distinct difference between the people marching and those destroying private property and clashing with the police. 'Professional agitators' comes to mind.

What Hitchcock taught the social engineers

You'll recall that late last year I was exploring the central role that narrative plays in shaping our lives. Although it may sound trivial at first glance, story-telling is not just a fundamental part of the human experience, it is one of the primary ways we come to an understanding of the world around us.

From earliest childhood — listening to our parents reading stories to us at bedtime — we learn that the events that shape our world don't just happen. Instead, they follow familiar plot trajectories in which protagonists set out on quests, encounter obstacles, surmount challenges, battle antagonists and ultimately resolve their conflicts by using what they have learned along their journey. This isn't just how story works; for the narrative mind, this is how the world works.

This is one of the central insights of my Film, Literature and the New World Order series: movies, books and TV series aren't mere popcorn entertainment. They reflect our understanding of the world, and — in the hands of the would-be social engineers and predictive programmers — even the dumbest B-movie can be used to implant an idea in the public's mind. By this method, fiction writers and film producers play a part in indirectly controlling the public's perception of the world.

So it only stands to reason that those who are trying to write the script of history and steer world events would steal a trick or two from the fiction writer's playbook, right? And if you want to keep your audience hooked to a far-fetched adventure tale, who better to steal from than the "master of suspense" himself, Alfred Hitchcock?

Full credit for this insight goes to David Knight, who, on his most recent broadcast, used a clip of Hitchcock explaining an old storytelling trick to illustrate a point about how politicians and others get the public on board with their agenda:

In the clip, talk show host Dick Cavett asks Hitchcock to explain a narrative device that the famed British-born film director often employed in his films: the so-called "MacGuffin."

Is perfidious Erdogan destroying Russia for The Great Turan?

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is notorious for slippery dealings with supposed allies whether NATO or the EU. However his greatest perfidy seems now to be directed against Turkey's relationship with Putin's Russia. Over the past two or more years in its dealings with Ukraine, Armenia, Syria, Libya and now most recently, in the failed revolution in Kazakhstan, Erdoğan has shown a clear pattern of not merely opportunism but actually perfidy or betrayal of trust, as in double-cross, in his dealings with Russia despite being dependent for energy and advanced defense equipment. Why, is the question.

Erdoğan and Kazakhstan's Failed Revolution

From evidence that has emerged from the recent bloody riots and attacks by armed militants, on the Almaty airport, media and government buildings of Kazakhstan, including the gruesome beheading of at least two police officers by ISIS-like Jihadists, it is clear that there were two parallel destabilizations going on. One was the initial façade of peaceful protests against fuel price rises from the government of the energy-rich country which allowed Washington and the EU to call for "dialogue." These were led by "human rights" activists trained by millions of dollars from the CIA-tied National Endowment for Democracy, likely the Soros Foundation-Kazakhstan and various other NGOs steered by CIA or MI-6. It's clear that this was a kind-of "pseudo-Color Revolution" cover, behind which was a far more nasty regime change coup attempt.


German navy chief resigns after saying 'Putin deserves respect, Ukraine lost Crimea'


Vice-admiral Kay-Achim Schönbach said the West could give Vladimir Putin respect
Vice Admiral Kay-Achim Schönbach stepped down as the head of the German navy after publicly saying Crimea was lost to Ukraine and that Vladimir Putin "probably" deserved respect.

Germany faced a diplomatic incident on Saturday following comments made by Navy chief Kay-Achim Schönbach on Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Ukraine crisis. Schönbach stepped down from his position late on Saturday.

"I have asked Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht to relieve me from my duties with immediate effect," Vice Admiral Kay-Achim Schoenbach said in a statement cited by the Reuters news agency.

"The minister has accepted my request," he added.

What were Schönbach's remarks?

Non-profit hitmen: NPR smears charity founder seeking due process for J6 detainees

NPR National Propaganda Radio
The article centers on the charity's founder, Cynthia Hughes, who launched the group to support Jan. 6 defendants held for months on end.

National Propaganda Radio (otherwise known as the state-funded media outfit NPR) ran a hit-piece Thursday on a charity collecting donations for political prisoners held under the Biden regime over charges related to Jan. 6.

"Experts see 'red flags' at nonprofit raising big money for Capitol riot defendants," NPR Investigations headlined, smearing the Patriot Freedom Project (PFP) as a shadow charity whose board is run by supervisors plagued with financial headaches of their own.

The article centers on the charity's founder, Cynthia Hughes, who launched the group to support Jan. 6 defendants held now more than a year in reportedly inhumane conditions, and their coping families. Hughes' own "adoptive nephew" is among those in jail.

White House infighting: Biden's Chief of Staff Ron Klain accused of hidin' Biden

Chief of Staff Ron Klain • US President Joe Biden
Infighting has reportedly struck the White House after President Joe Biden's approval rating submerged to 33 percent.

Much of the infighting is attributed to Biden's Chief of Staff Ron Klain's decision to keep Biden from being amongst the electorate in a "pragmatic" way, NBC News reported.

"Biden has strayed from his core brand as a pragmatic, empathetic politician who won the Democratic nomination as a moderate willing to compromise," the report said, dissecting Klain's micromanagement of the president.

Comment: Given the disaster that nearly every Biden press conference has been whether on the campaign trail or in office, it's no wonder Klain wants to keep President Houseplant, his long-time boss, under wraps.
