Every bad outcome we have been enduring of late has been entirely predictable. Entirely idiotic people or entirely nefarious people are driving important decisions. Either way, the outcome ends up the same and we pay the price, figuratively and literally.
On Friday, the CDC revised its covid risk formula. With this single change, the pandemic abruptly eased going from 90% of the United States in High-Risk Red to less than 30%. The Mirror told you from day one what the CDC is now acknowledging because of disastrous Dem poll numbers. It was all a scam. Every single bit of it.
If we’ve learned anything after 20 years of this, a war in faraway places makes the weak-willed and cowardly feel strong and brave, it gives the vicious and depraved a chance to exact revenge on rivals at home, and it washes away the sins of the most guilty and corrupt.
Note: Biden says he “really enjoyed teaching” when he was a “professor” at the University of Pennsylvania. Biden was paid $1 million, but never taught a single class.
Ze Great Narrative is zhat ve face existential crises at an accelerating rate with unprecedented complexity and velocity and so need to be ruled globally by tyrants calling themselves “experts.”
We are in this incredibly volatile and frightening time because an enfeebled Joe Biden is in the White House and faceless Davos-oriented globalists (who affirmatively hate Americans) are running the show. And they are playing a reckless game with Russia.
Some are asking why we are still buying oil from Russia. Biden’s idiotic, left-wing energy policy all but bans American energy production. He now has to choose between opening up production (angering his idiot base), cutting off Russian oil and crushing our economy (angering normal people), or the status quo. Also, why is it that drilling for oil in Russia or Iran or anywhere else doesn’t harm the environment? Only in North America does drilling for oil put us on the verge of climate annihilation.
He would rather destroy the economy and impoverish his own countrymen a hundred times over through insane gas prices and inflation than anger his own radically left-wing enviro base.
NEW: During a call with senators & House members this morning, Ukrainian President Zelenskyy made an emotional plea for a no-fly zone, saying it’s the only option given that Putin is not willing to come to the table for peace talks. Over 300 attendees on the call, per sources.
If you’ve been too slow to notice, Putin and the Russians are the ones still fighting the Nazis. Has it occurred to you that maybe Zelensky, the guy furiously lobbying for World War III every single day isn’t some titanic moral hero?
Apple Pay and Google Pay no longer work on Moscow’s metro system, leading to long queues as people fumble about for cash…There is a 100% chance that US elites are dreaming of how and under what pretext to implement these kinds of measures against domestic political opponents. Banks.
Same Energy: Adoration of a Zelensky exactly like adoration of Andrew Cuomo in March+ 2020.

GREAT commentary on the weird reality that confronts us in the new millennium when the weird reality that confronts us in this new millennium seems like another episode of an on-going story in a National Lampoon magazine from back in 1970!
Paul Plante says
And speaking of really weird **** you would expect to read about in Tales of the Extreme Bizarre, we have this from the smarmy, pencil-neck congress boy from Hollywood and Disneyland who represents Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Goofy in the People’s House, the sacred temple of democracy in Washington, D.C. that houses the most expensive whore house in the galaxy this side of Tau Ceti:
“Transcript: Representative Adam Schiff on ‘Face the Nation'”
6 MARCH 2022
The following is a transcript of an interview with Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California that aired Sunday, March 6, 2022, on “Face the Nation.”
MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to start on Ukraine.
The United States purchases about 600,000 barrels of Russian petroleum products a day.
Speaker Pelosi said that oil should be banned.
The White House says it’s looking at options.
What is that option?
Does a solution come from Congress or is this something President Biden needs to act on?
REP. SCHIFF: It’s anathema, I think, to many of us in Congress that while we were sanctioning them and trying to cripple their economy that way would help them in any way by purchasing their petroleum.
This will have an impact to – potentially on global oil prices, including here at home, where in Los Angeles now gas is over $5 a gallon.
MARGARET BRENNAN: How quickly does that need to happen?
I mean, this is Putin’s lifeline.
It’s a cash cow.
REP. SCHIFF: Well, I think we like to act on it very quickly.
At the same time, you know, we have to be circumspect about the fact that Russia will probably find somewhere else to sell that oil and gas to.
So the impact ultimately on Russia may not be as powerful as we would like.
It’s why we have to continue to explore additional ways to really crush the Russian economy.
So this smarmy ignorant Democrat pencil neck is running his mouth on national TV, which is really international TV, about “crippling” the Russian economy, which is a declaration of war by Democrats in the U.S. Congress against Russia, or Schiff himself, who is now so puffed up and powerful in his own right that he can declare war on his own on Russia, because it makes him feel good about himself and all warm and squishy inside knowing he is that almighty powerful, and “crushing” the Russian economy, which is also a declaration of war.
Did Putin hear the smarmy little pencil neck?
Let’s go to the Brit publication The Guardian to see if the Brits know anything about it:
“Defiant Putin warns the west: your sanctions are akin to an act of war”
Toby Helm, Luke Harding in Lviv, Daniel Boffey in Brussels & Julian Borger in Washington
Sat 5 Mar 2022
Vladimir Putin delivered a chilling warning to the west over the imposition of sanctions on Russia on Saturday, warning that measures designed to cripple his country’s economy were “akin to an act of war”.
Increasingly, European diplomats believe Putin sees the west’s supply of weaponry and other support to Ukraine as direct intervention of a kind that requires retaliation.
And from there The Guardian takes us to here:
In Washington, there has been talk of offering Putin a so-called “golden bridge” – blocking all his avenues of advance while making retreat as attractive as possible.
US secretary of state Antony Blinken said on Friday the door to negotiation was open.
“If they show any signs of being willing to engage in meaningful diplomacy, of course we’ll engage,” he said.
If Putin got near Tony Blinken at this stage, I do believe he would rip off Blinken’s ignorant head, urinate down his neck and then toss the mess left over in Joe Biden’s lap with the admonition that next time, Joe better get a tougher “tough guy” to threaten Putin with.
As to Tony Blinken, in actuality he is a great big NOTHINGBURGER from the “weak sister” Obama days who now has delusions of grandeur and more than a touch of megalomania since Joe Biden restored him from the ranks of the politically dead to be Joe’s secretary of state, which makes Tony think he is now a world leader making Putin dance to his tune like Putin is his trained seal.
And that’s the news as it is happening!
Stay tuned for more coverage on Joe Biden and his pack of idiots and fools starting WWIII, and in the meantime, we will take a pause for station identification and a full fifteen uninterrupted minutes of your favorite commercials that you cannot go through your day without!
Paul Plante says
And as we American citizens watch this out-of-control Democrat madman Biden and this Democrat pencil neck from Disneyland crush and cripple our economy as they try to make the senile old fool the undisputed leader of the entire world, which means Putin of Russia has to get off the planet, because there can only be one Joe Stalin in Russia and that is Joe Biden, let’s go to Rigzone to see just how successfully their efforts to destroy our economy and crush and cripple us as a people are going:
“Oil Soars with Supply Crisis Fears from Possible Russian Embargo”
by Bloomberg | Devika Krishna Kumar and Sheela Tobben
Monday, March 07, 2022
Oil had its biggest daily swing ever, with Brent surging to nearly $140 after the U.S. said it was considering a ban on Russian petroleum imports.
Prices from oil to nickel to wheat are surging to new highs, as fears exacerbated from a major inflationary shock to the global economy.
Oil jumped at the market’s open on news the Biden administration is mulling whether to prohibit Russian oil imports without the participation of allies in Europe, at least initially, according to people familiar with the matter.
Surging oil prices and supply fears are also raising the price of fuels.
Diesel futures in Europe and the U.S. touched the highest in decades.
U.S. gasoline futures also surged to the most on record in data going back to 2005.
Record prices of oil and other commodities are raising alarm bells everywhere.
The International Monetary Fund over the weekend warned of severe consequences for the global economy.
Brent for May settlement ended 4.3% higher at $123.21 a barrel after rising to $139.13 earlier.
The contract rose 21% last week.
West Texas Intermediate for April settled up 3.2% at $119.40.
So, can Joe Biden and the Democrats succeed in their drive to drive America right into the ground and destroy it totally so they can build it back better with a Marxist economy?
Stay tuned, more is yet to come!
Paul Plante says
And not to put too fine a point on it, but the smarmy Democrat pencil-neck from Disneyland is openly proclaiming an intent on the part of the Democrats in Washington to commit genocide in Russia by causing mass starvation.
It’s un-American to do things like that, but so are the Democrats un-American, so it would be something that they would do, starve people they don’t like to death to get them off the planet for Joe Biden like that innocent family blown to pieces by Joe in Afghanistan as he made his panicked withdrawal because that is who they are – monsters on the face of the earth and they walk among us!
Paul Plante says
On another note, some enterprising souls here in OUR America which sure as hell is not Joe Biden’s to destroy have made up a bunch of stickers with a picture of the ignorant goofball on them pointing to the price on the gas, which today went over $5 per gallon for hi-test up this way with regular at $4.40 per gallon, and a caption that says “I DID THAT!”
Paul Plante says
And hey, how about that Volodymyr Zelensky dude over there in Ukraine, the former comedian and actor who is now the Democrats’ HERO OF THE HOUR.
The reason why the Democrats and Joe Biden especially love the dude is because Volodymyr Zelensky is corrupt like them according to the Pandora Papers which revealed to the Democrats and the world that he and his closest advisors owned a network of offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands, Cyprus and Belize.
Gots to have some place to launder money, afterall, and those are great choices.
I wonder if Hunter Biden is in on that as a “closest advisor.”
Paul Plante says
The latest news out from the Democrats is that older Americans on fixed incomes are simply going to have to freeze to death and starve to death as their sacrifice to protect corruption in Ukraine:
“We are going to see increased gas prices here in the United States.”
“In Europe, they will see dramatic increases in prices.”
“That’s the cost of standing up for freedom and standing alongside the Ukrainian people, but it’s going to cost us.”
– DEMOCRAT Christopher Andrew Coons, an American lawyer and politician serving as the junior United States senator from Delaware since 2010.
“Americans need to realize the larger sacrifice needed.”
– DEMOCRAT Susan Wild, representative from Pennsylvania’s 7th congressional district serving on the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.

“Biden bans Russia oil imports to U.S., warns U.S. gasoline prices will rise further”
By Trevor Hunnicutt and Steve Holland
March 8, 2022
WASHINGTON, March 8 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden announced a ban on Russian oil and other energy imports on Tuesday in retaliation for the invasion of Ukraine, underscoring strong bipartisan support for a move that he acknowledged would drive up U.S. energy prices.
“We’re banning all imports of Russian oil and gas energy,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable in U.S. ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s war machine.”
Biden said sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies had already caused the Russian economy to “crater”.
Biden predicted prices would rise further as a result of “Putin’s war,” but pledged to do all he could to minimize the impact on the American people.

“NATO Says It Didn’t Notice Ukraine Soldier’s Apparent Nazi Symbol in Tweet”
9 March 2022
An official of the U.S.-led NATO alliance has told Newsweek that the coalition did not notice what appeared to be a symbol associated with Nazism on the uniform of a Ukrainian soldier featured in a since-deleted photo on NATO’s official Twitter account.
The first of the four images included what appeared to be a Ukrainian servicemember bearing a “Black Sun” on the chest area of her military fatigues.
The symbol, also known in German as “Schwarze Sonne” or “Sonnenrad,” is rooted in Nazi occultism and has been brandished by far-right elements across the globe, including in Ukraine, where it is featured on the official logo of the National Guard’s Azov Regiment.
Shortly after NATO shared the image, the symbol was noted by a number of social media users and then taken down swiftly.
While closely associated with Nazism, the history of the Black Sun actually stems largely from the lore of the Third Reich that lingered long after its fall.
“The notion of the ‘Black Sun’ has been discussed in former and neo-Nazi circles since the 1950s, when it was related to alleged ‘esoteric’ SS circles and their super weapons that survived the war,” Julian Strube, an assistant professor at the University of Vienna who has authored books on the subject, told Newsweek.
“In the postwar period, it evolved into a key concept in far-right and neo-Nazi circles,” he added, “but it was only related in the 1990s to the symbol that you have seen on the uniform.”
Among the most prominent direct links to Nazism for the symbol was its display on the floor of the infamous Wewelsburg castle, used by Reichsführer-SS commander Heinrich Himmler.
“Today, it serves as an identity marker for far-right circles.”
As to its actual meaning, Strube explained that the Black Sun “can mean a lot of different things, but it is almost always situated within far-right and neo-Nazi contexts.”
“It can refer to a supposed ‘Pagan’ past allegedly linked to Nazism and the SS in particular,” Strube said.
“As such, it might be related to Norse or Slavic Neo-Perunism with a far-right thrust — or it may simply serve as a substitute for the Nazi swastika, which is outlawed in several countries.”
Mark Pitcavage, senior fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, also noted how the Azov Regiment “has incorporated it into their logo.”
And while Pitcavage explained that “sonnenrads or sunwheels are a common ancient symbol, used with many variations”—much in the way the swastika has ancient origins—he said “the Nazis created one specific variation that white supremacists have adopted.”
The Black Sun, he said “was one of the less common Nazi symbols, but because the SS used it, it gained a sort of elite status.”
Now, he argued, it has only gained popularity among extremists.
“After the fall of the Third Reich, neo-Nazis (and, later, other white supremacists as well) adopted many symbols used or appropriated by the Nazis, including their version of the sonnenrad,” Pitcavage told Newsweek.
“In the past six years or so, it has become more popular among them, as symbols sometimes do.”
“It is now incorporated in many white supremacist graphics, as well as in tattoos.”
“Its appearance on a military uniform is likely to give the same impression as its use anywhere else: an impression of neo-Nazism or white supremacy,” he added.
Ukraine’s own experience with Nazism has been the subject of great debate within the country and abroad.
Ukraine was occupied by Nazi Germany from 1941 to 1944, and while some Ukrainians fought against the invaders, some nationalists, such as Stepan Bandera, who sought independence from the Soviet Union, chose to collaborate with Berlin against Moscow.
Bandera’s legacy, in particular, has been celebrated by some Ukrainian leaders since independence was realized in 1991, including by former President Viktor Yushchenko.
The trend has deeply strained ties with Moscow, which has depicted Kyiv as being led by far-right elements since a 2014 uprising that brought to power a government seeking ties to the West and its NATO alliance, which led to a pro-Russia insurgency in the east along with Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in the south.
Newsweek has reported on the presence of far-right and even neo-Nazi elements within the Ukrainian military and among paramilitary formations, and has spoken with experts and former officials who raised the alarm about their presence and access to Western military support both before and after the outbreak of the war late last month.
“There are no guarantees that the atmosphere of psychosis and hatred created in Europe will not push local nationalists to some irreparable acts,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told a press briefing Wednesday.
“Can you imagine how your hysteria, carefully created and disseminated in the media, will affect people with extreme, extremist views?
“Russia is far away for them, you are close,” she added.
“Your civilian population will suffer from them, because this bacteria of Nazism, nationalism, extremism is easy to awaken, but impossible to drive back.”
Paul Plante says
Goofy old Joe, who is capable of blowing up the world, and us with it, and who I think is gone clean out of his mind with his visceral hatred of Putin, who is more than Joe will ever be, which infuriates Joe to no end because Joe thinks he is the strongest man on the planet, not Putin, is on a real roll here as he vies with Hillary Clinton to be the most hated and despised Democrat on the face of the earth, and I think the old goofball has a real good shot at the title:

“10-year Treasury yield is steady at 2% as investors digest inflation data and Russia-Ukraine war”
Maggie Fitzgerald, Vicky McKeever
March 11, 2022
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Thursday that she expected the Russia-Ukraine war to contribute to stubborn inflation, foreseeing that prices would stay high for another year.
Thanos Papasavvas, founder and chief investment officer at ABP Invest, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” on Friday that his firm believed “inflation is here to stay.”
He explained that globalization, which had helped bring prices down, was receding.
This meant that “prices and uncertainty will be higher” going forward, he said.
“So we’ve got inflation, we think rates are going to continue rising, there is a risk of stagflation — so it is not good,” Papasavvas said.
