"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it" -- Mark Twain
Western alliances will collapse in the war over Russian LNG
Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, noted that the EU managed to reduce Russia's share in gas imports from 40% at the beginning of the year to 20%. This was made possible, among other things, owing to an increase the share of LNG. However, it turns out that this LNG is also Russian, and this winter there will be a life-and-death struggle for it.
Anglo-Saxons break up alliances with Europe and Asia
According to The Wall Street Journal, Europe will have to fight with Asia for Russian liquefied natural gas in the coming months. Against the backdrop of considerable decline in exports of pipeline gas from Russia and an almost fivefold increase in the cost of gas in Europe, the LNG price in Asia and Europe has equalized.
LNG exporters today benefit from breaking long-term contracts with Asian customers, even if they need to pay compensations and redirect supplies to the EU. According to Reuters, Belgium's LNG imports from the US increased by about 650%, while Pakistan's US LNG imports collapsed by 72%.

I don’t see how we could possibly be stupider here in the West unless we took courses in stupidity. Jordan Peterson.
The following are some quotes from a recent Jordan Peterson video:

The Democrats in power in Washington have weaponized the FBI and Department of Justice (sic) in an effort to criminalize President Trump. They tried this with Russiagate, with impeachment, with their fabricated January 6 Insurrection, and now they have sent an army of FBI agents into Trump’s home, relying on the presstitutes to tell a story of deep, dark, suspicious activities by Trump.
The Democrats have become so bold because Republicans, with few exceptions, are not fighters. Republicans come out of the business world where the rule is “don’t rock the boat.” Republicans, being patriotic, feel responsibility to protect the reputation of the US government, and, therefore, acquiesce in Democrat abuses of power. The Republican Majority Leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, for example, helped the Democrats steal the presidential election by denying that such a thing had happened. For Mitch McConnell Republicans, America cannot afford the embarrassment of acknowledging a stolen presidential election. The Third World demeanor that a stolen presidential election gives the United States is unacceptable to Republicans who believe the honor of the government must be protected at all cost.
The Democrats are far more experienced at stealing elections than Republicans. Democrat control of big city political machines is prime training ground for corruption. The Biden regime has used the weaponized Department of Justice to block the efforts of states to return integrity to voter rolls and procedures. Consequently, the Democrats can just as easily steal the November Congressional election as they did the last presidential election. Republicans also face the disadvantage that their protests of stolen elections are misrepresented by Democrats and the presstitutes as racism, an epithet that scares fight out of Republicans.
Former President Donald Trump appeared to be the favored Republican nominee for president in 2024 on Saturday, as he won overwhelming support from a straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Texas.
When asked who they preferred as the Republican presidential nominee, 69% of the 1,000 CPAC attendees who voted preferred Trump, while 24% preferred Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. If Trump chooses not to run, 65% of attendees said they would support DeSantis, followed by the former president's son Donald Trump Jr. at 8% and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at 6%.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began two years ago, the US government has poured billions of your tax dollars into the vaccine program. More than $9 billion of your tax dollars were given to vaccine companies for research and $22 billion of your tax dollars were then used to support vaccine distribution. The feds also shelled out another $10 billion to expand access and currently announced $3 billion more to spend on an ad campaign to combat vaccine hesitancy.
The US government spent well over $130 for every man, woman, and child in America to push the COVID-19 vaccines and yet over one-third of the country still refuses to get fully jabbed while nearly 70 percent refuse to take the booster. Why is that?
Periodically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) releases the new information on reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The number of reports are at historical levels and more deaths and adverse events have been reported than ever before.
Before going any further, as not to set off the “fact checkers,” it is important to point out that just because data is submitted to the CDC through VAERS, this does not in anyway mean that these reactions are related to the COVID-19 vaccine.
A lot of Americans are saying they woke up this morning, August 9, and did not recognize the country in which they have lived their entire lives.
I received a text from one friend whose family escaped Cuba before the communist revolution there. The text was very short:
I believe there’s a lot of truth to the comparison.
A Boston-based Internal Revenue Service agent convicted of raping a college intern at gunpoint in 2017 was sentenced to seven to eight years in prison Tuesday.
James Clarke, 45, dropped his head into his hands when the sentence was delivered at Suffolk Superior Court.
Clarke was convicted by a Suffolk County jury last month of aggravated rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and indecent assault and battery in the July 2017 assault of a 21-year-old woman, the Boston Globe reported.
Frederick Louis, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was indicted on 16 counts of aiding or assisting in the preparation of false tax returns, 4 counts of wire fraud, and 4 counts of aggravated identity theft. On March 18, 2022, Louis was arrested by IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agents.
The indictment alleges that Louis served as a "ghost preparer," meaning that he prepared tax returns for compensation but failed to sign or otherwise declare the tax returns he prepared for other individuals. Louis worked as a Tax Examiner for the IRS from 1985 to 1994. It is alleged that due to his prior IRS employment, Louis knew that by law individuals who are paid to prepare or assist in preparing tax returns must have a valid Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and sign and include their PTIN on the returns they prepare. Louis also held himself out to be an accountant who prepared tax returns for pay or as a favor to friends. In actuality, Louis does not have an accounting degree, is not a Certified Public Accountant, and did not have a PTIN.
It is alleged that from at least January 2016 and continuing through at least March 2021, Louis prepared tax returns that contained false Schedule C business expenses, false Schedule F farming expenses, false Schedule A itemized deductions, claimed false dependents, and/or claimed false filing statuses on certain tax returns to generate fraudulent inflated tax refunds to which the taxpayer clients were not entitled. It is further alleged that Louis allocated portions of the refunds to himself, often unbeknownst to his client by directing the fraudulently inflated refunds be direct deposited in one of the following ways: (1) the entire refund was sent to Louis or (2) some portion of the refund was sent to bank accounts owned or controlled by Louis. As a result of the scheme, the IRS issued over $191,000 in fraudulent federal income tax refunds.
The Internal Revenue Service fails to fire the overwhelming majority of employees who are delinquent on their taxes, despite a legal requirement to do so.
Of the 1,250 employees the IRS identified as not fully paying their tax bills or not doing so on time in fiscal 2017, it only took disciplinary action in 90 cases—just 7% of the time. In the vast majority of cases, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found, IRS management concluded that employees were not “willfully” failing to pay their bills and therefore should not be fired.
Management made those decisions despite three-quarters of those cleared employees working in such tax-related positions as examiners, compliance investigators and employees responsible for answering tax questions.
Under a 1998 law, the IRS must fire employees willfully out of tax compliance. Failing to pay taxes is considered willful if the individual knew or should have known about their non-compliance, though the inspector general noted IRS employees are responsible for being aware of their requirements under the law.
The Democrats are desperate to win in November and they are taking the United States down the drain in order to forcefully impose their will, or should I say the Great Reset. On the approaching 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, The Democrats are toying with what will most likely end in a civil war and the destruction of the United States. Never in the entire history of the United States has a former president been indicted for any criminal conduct. This has not been because there was never such an incident. Most importantly, the historic precedent is that post-term indictment is NOT legally allowed.
Americans don’t like the idea of criminalizing politics. Just look at Ukraine. In January 2022, Ukraine’s former president, Petro Poroshenko, landed in Kyiv and was charged with Treason by Zelensky in a case that illustrates the danger of criminalizing politics. So many other banana republics do the same. Once one party gets a hold of power, they try to prosecute the opposition.
Up until now, both political parties, as well as the public, see the prospect of post-term immunity as a guarantee that the country’s politics will remain civil and that power will transition peacefully from one party to the other. All of that is now crumbling before our eyes. That very percedent is what drove President Gerald Ford to pardon Richard Nixon. It was also the reason why the Office of the Independent Counsel decided not to indict former President Bill Clinton for perjury.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that his Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, was been raided by FBI agents. “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump announced in a statement.
NEVER in the history of the United States has the FBI ever carried out such a raid. Trump publicly stated that his home was “under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” He also said that: “They even broke into my safe.”
Joe Biden on Tuesday signed ratification documents approving Finland and Sweden’s NATO membership
After raiding President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago the Stasi-FBI apprehended Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) and seized his phone.
The corrupt Biden gang’s forced invasion yesterday of President Trump’s Florida property, Mar-a-Lago, is upsetting the fascist communist liberals.
Atop FBI lawyer who fabricated evidence in a federal spy warrant against Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page is expected to plead guilty to federal charges brought by U.S. Attorney John Durham. Kevin Clinesmith, who is expected to admit to deliberately fabricating evidence in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant application, used to spy on a former campaign affiliate of President Donald Trump, was a top attorney in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Office of General Counsel (OGC) and a key agency attorney under fired former FBI Director James Comey.
Clinesmith is the first individual to be charged as part of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the efforts in 2016 and 2017 to spy on the Trump campaign and Trump administration. Both Durham and Attorney General William Barr stated at the conclusion of the OIG investigation of the Page FISA warrants that they had reason to believe the entire investigation of Trump, which allegedly began in late July of 2016, was not legally predicated. Durham was tapped by Barr in May of 2019 to investigate the Russian collusion hoax and determine whether any criminal charges against those who perpetrated it were warranted.
Eric Trump revealed that FBI agents who raided former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida broke into his safe — but it was empty.
The 45th president’s son told Fox News Channel‘s Brian Kilmeade that the safe was “empty” and that over two dozen FBI agents were involved in the raid.
Eric Trump said the raid was to find documents that should have gone to the National Archives. It’s unknown if they retrieved the documents, but Eric Trump said there was nothing in the safe that the agents searched.
“Nothing was in the safe,” Kilmeade said, quoting Eric Trump.
Former President Trump revealed on Monday that his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida was raided by a “large group” of FBI agents.
The FBI’s unannounced raid was allegedly tied to boxes of classified information that Trump had supposedly taken to his Florida estate.
Webmaster addition: The only thing in the safe was a picture of Hunter Biden smoking crack and jerking off!
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has come to the defense of former President Donald Trump after the FBI raided his Florida Mar-a-Lago home.
“The raid of MAL [Mar-a-Lago] is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” he said on Twitter. “Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”
And he was not the only Republican to respond with furiousness after the raid.
“The @FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago is incredibly concerning, especially given the Biden admin’s history of going after parents & other political opponents. This is 3rd World country stuff. We need answers NOW. The FBI must explain what they were doing today & why,” Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott said.
Former President Donald Trump has kept everyone guessing as to his 2024 intentions.
Recently, the 45th president dropped a big clue leading people to believe he’s gearing up for another White House run.
“It’s certainly not a very long period, the time is coming,” Trump said. “I think people are going to be very happy, our country has never been in a position like this, we’ve lost everything.”
“Our country has never been at a worse point,” said Trump. “They gave away $85 billion worth of equipment, dead soldiers, you still have Americans over there probably as hostages, eventually will be hostages, there has never been a time like this.
“We’ll be making an announcement in the not too distant future,” added Trump.
“We have to win an Earth-shattering victory in 2022,” Trump said. “Winning this election needs to be a national referendum on the horrendous catastrophes radical Democrats have inflicted on our country.”
Bruce Reinhart acted for several employees of the billionaire pedophile before he sanctioned the 'unannounced' search on Mar-a-Lago yesterday.
He left the local US Attorney's office over a decade ago to set up a private practice and help staff members including his Lolita Express pilots and his scheduler.
He was accused in a lawsuit of breaking the Justice Department's policies by using information from his previous job to benefit in the private sector, which he denied.
Meanwhile Reinhart was also revealed to have donated to Barack Obama's campaign in 2008 and Jeb Bush's when he ran against Trump in 2015.
The FBI searched Trump's estate as part of a probe into whether he took classified records from the White House to his Florida mansion.
The ex-president revealed the raid in a lengthy statement and said the Feds broke into a safe at his home as they hunted the documents.
Despite the best efforts of the alt-far-left-communist-democRATs and their MSM toadies to both change the definition of vaccine and to coerce people to take the shots, many people absolutely refuse. The good news is that those people are doing just fine. But WE(!!) worry about the rest of you.
An article from August 5, 2022 actually dismissed a cluster of Canadian doctors dying. It stated all 3 died of cancer, blamed “anti-vaxx” social media, said there was no evidence it was the ‘vaxx’ and said we should all move on. The only problem is that another article yesterday (2 days later) said it was actually FOURTEEN (14!) doctors who died over the last 9 months, all from the same hospital!
According to the second article only 2 of them 14 died of cancer:
If you have followed my reporting you probably know about the protests happening in the Netherlands. Tens of thousands of farmers have taken to the streets to protest against new climate goals which will force farmers to shut down their farms.
They have set hay bales on fire on motorways and dumped manure and even blocked supermarket distribution centers.
Despite our high vaccination rate, COVID-19 activity remains high in San Diego County, the Health and Human Services Agency reported Friday, even as hospitalizations are on a slow decline.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention moved San Diego County to the high-risk level for COVID-19 three weeks ago and cases continue to trend high.
In all, the meant-to-be-inflation buster bill will dole out about $80 billion to the IRS for increase enforcement, operational improvements, customer service, and systems modernization. Think big, really big. That $80 billion is more than six times the current annual IRS budget of $12.6 billion.
How can the IRS spend all of that? You guessed it, the bill says a whopping $45.6 billion will be for enforcement, and make no mistake, enforcement is the main directive from Democrats to the IRS. Get bigger, tougher and faster at collecting, and make them pay. Meanwhile, the IRS could be ramping up its police power too. The IRS is a key part of the government, but not one you usually associate with law enforcement and guns.
Webmaster addition: Will they come for the gold fillings in our teeth?
This month marks 30 years since Ruby Ridge, one of those events that, as Dan Gelernter explains, the FBI prefers Americans to ignore. That attitude invites a look at those events, as described by the victims of FBI violence.
Army veteran Randy Weaver believed the world had become corrupt and dangerous, so he chose to be a survivalist. In 1983, Weaver built a cabin in the remote Ruby Ridge area of northern Idaho and lived there with his wife Vicky, daughters Sara and Elisheba, son Samuel, and family friend Kevin Harris.
Weaver held anti-government views but was not a member of the Aryan Nations. The federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms sought to make Weaver an informant among the group and when Weaver refused he was arrested. This led to a standoff in which U.S. Marshal William Degan and Weaver’s son Samuel, 14, were both killed.
This brought in the FBI, which deployed some 400 heavily armed agents, helicopters, and armored personnel carriers against a single family. The rules of engagement allowed deadly force against any family member seen with a firearm, but in effect it was an order of shoot on sight.
