NewsReal: So, Are we at War With Russia or Not?

biden stoltenberg nato
The German foreign minister stated this week that "we are at war with Russia." The French foreign ministry immediately corrected her to say, "No, we are not at war with Russia!" Meanwhile Hungarian PM Viktor Orban told the American Conservative magazine, "Yes, we are at war with Russia," and the Russian government clarified that it considers the transfer of heavy weaponry from NATO countries to Ukraine to mean that NATO is now "a party to the conflict." Well, are 'we' at war with Russia or not? Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss the recent flare-up of terrorism in Israel and western Europe, along with the bizarre triple 'Asian' mass shooting mayhem in southern California.

NewsReal: Germany Sending Tanks to 'Save Ukraine' - WEF Meets to 'Save The Planet'

In an apparent last-ditch effort to thwart Russian forces sweeping across Ukraine, the Anglo-Americans are putting enormous pressure on Germany to greenlight the delivery of thousands of German-made Leopard 2 tanks to the 'war theater' they created. Faced with the prospect of the Russian army destroying German tanks en masse, for the second time in 80 years, will Germany cave and repeat history?

Meanwhile, the 'globalist elite' are meeting in Davos, Switzerland, for this year's World Economic Forum, where its representatives and prestigious guests are doing everything possible to validate ordinary people's suspicions that 'the globalists' are megalomaniacs.

NewsReal: What's Biden Been Hidin'? Classified Documents!

We know, right - shocking, scandalous!

Except, it isn't. Which senior official in DC does not have classified documents in their home?!

And yet, the US govt and media last week made a big stink about it, to the point that AG Merrick Garland has announced a Special Counsel to 'investigate Biden's wrong-doing'. Clearly, this is a contrived message to pressure Biden, possibly to ward him off re-running in 2024.

In the meantime, MAGA Republicans are achieving with astonishing rapidity all they wished for (and more!) when bargaining with Kevin McCarthy for him to become Speaker of the House. It's all going so smoothly for the Republicans, one begins to wonder whether they're being set up for a fall...

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall explain why an eerily familiar 'J6-style Insurrection' took place in Brazil last week, resulting in ex-president Jair Bolsonaro being globally condemned for 'inspiring', if not outright organizing, a 'failed fascist coup'.

NewsReal: MAGA Congress? Speaker House Fight Signals Shift Towards US Isolationism

After a contentious opening to the US Congress 2023-2024 that saw Republican rebels force 15 (FIFTEEN!) votes for Speaker of the House, it's likely that Trump loyalists have stamped their influence on what is now a GOP-majority House of Representatives.

While it's too early to know for sure, Joe Quinn speculates that this signals a sea-change in overall US government policy - one that will bring it in line with the direction President Trump had attempted to steer it towards: significantly increased US economic protectionism, coupled with reduced spending on foreign wars and client governments.

Never-Trumpers will be loathe to admit it, of course, but they're coming around to realizing that both Trump's diagnosis and solutions for US problems were correct. Alas, it may now be too late to save the US from economic chaos...

NewsReal: 2022 Year in Review: From Canada Freedom Convoy to US-Russia Proxy War

2022 is almost over! Joe and Niall look back on some of the highs (and lows) of a turbulent year. From crushing freedom protests in Canada to raking in billion$ from war in Ukraine, it was another great year... for the elites.

For the people, not so much, but at least the 'clown shoes' antics of their leaders have clarified much about so-called 'democracy'.

NewsReal: Twitter Files Expose Feds, German 'Royalist Coup Plot' & Russian 'Lord of War' Exchanged

More 'Twitter Files' published this week confirmed widespread US government and LGBT+ activists' interference in 'managing' social media platforms to 'de-amplify' dissenting voices on secret blacklists. Besides outright censorship through banning, we also learned their 'rationale' for banning Trump, and that shadow-banning is really a thing - you were not imagining it, and everyone in the media and government has spent the last 6 years gaslighting you about it.

Also on this week's NewsReal, Joe and Niall examine the bizarre claims in German media this week about the uncovering of a 'royalist plot to violently overthrow the government'. Thanks only to dawn raids on 130 premises by over 3,000 police officers was democracy this week 'saved' in Germany, which narrowly avoided being taken over by armed, elderly, aristocratic, anti-vaxx, QAnon conspiracy theorists.

No, that's what they actually claimed!

Finally, Viktor Bout has returned to Russia. Why on Earth would the US government release 'the second-most-wanted-man-alive' after Osama Bin Laden - who they labelled the 'Lord of War' and the 'Merchant of Death' - to RUSSIA, in the midst of a conflict against that country of apocalyptic, existential proportions?

NewsReal: Twitter Files: US Spies And Dems Colluded to Interfere in 2020 US Election

After wailing non-stop about Trump's alleged collusion with the Russian government 'to subvert US democracy', but never actually proving their false claim, the media is now having to eat crow as Elon Musk shares archives of Twitter company emails with Democratic Party operatives and US government agents who colluded to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story just prior to the 2020 US presidential election, thereby misinforming the electorate and potentially swaying voters to make choices they would otherwise not have.

In this NewsReal, Joe and Niall take stock of this unassailable proof that yes, collusion really took place to subvert American democracy, but no, it was not Russians behind it! This courageous move by new Twitter owner Elon Musk, coupled with other viewpoints and ideas expressed by the tech tycoon, suggest that he is heading for a major clash with the American 'deep state' - and he is already warning his Twitter followers that he is 'not feeling suicidal'...

MindMatters: The Big Questions, Consciousness, and Gurdjieff - A Talk with Alan Francis

alan francis
What is the purpose of esotericism? How might we view humanity's trajectory in light of the many seemingly negative developments we see on a more or less daily basis? What are the personal challenges in raising consciousness and awareness in oneself - and how may those be seen against the backdrop of a world gone backwards? And what does it even mean to be living in these times in the larger and even cosmic sense?

This week as we are once again joined by Gurdjiffian student and teacher Alan Francis (International School of the Fourth Way) who discusses these themes in both broad and personal terms, bringing his astute observations to the fore to answer the questions many of us have right now about where we may be, collectively and individually.

NewsReal: USA De-industrializing Europe? EU Insiders Issue Stark Warning

Excess deaths - the numbers of people who die on a weekly basis above the 5-year-average - are up way higher today than they were in 2020, yet the media is not sounding the alarm. Instead it's being calmly reported that the massive jump in energy prices in Europe this year will translate into the additional, preventable deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

This week on NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss the first semi-official warnings from European leaders that they've been duped into destroying European food and energy supplies in order to transplant much of Europe's industrial base to the USA, warning that "the Continent [is] turning into an industrial wasteland."

And it's all being done under everyone's nose under the guise of 'saving the poor Ukrainian people' and 'saving the planet'...
