The full text of Putin's speech announcing the partial mobilization is reproduced here because the MSM and The West have gone completely bonkers and have been misrepresenting what was said. Also they are saying outright that Russia is losing and Putin's back is against the wall etc etc. The actual reality is nothing of the sort.

The Russians don't do bullshit like the politicians in the West do and are very upfront.

Therefore rather than listen to the "interpretation" made by the MSM and politicians who don't want you to read the actual speech and what he really said and the context, it makes more sense for you to read it yourself and make up your own mind.

People ought to remember that the West is openly saying they want to bring down the government of Russia and prolong the war to hurt them. The people saying this are not peace keepers and are not your friend. We are now all facing into Winter where it looks like we are going to face severe discomfort and blackouts, as well as huge energy prices and shortages. This will destroy the economy. Europe is committing suicide through these insane sanctions that only hurt Europe at the behest of the US & NATO. It is therefore prudent to see what is behind the curtain

Europe is committing economic suicide all because they are doing the bidding of US Neocons by imposing ridiculous sanctions against Russia which are doing far more damage to Europe and very little to Russia. They are equivalent to threatening to shoot yourself in both feet and the head and then going ahead and doing it. It is a completely idiotic and absurd situation that Europe has arrived in. We are already seeing the initial consequences in the form of fuel price rises and inflation.

The sanctions have actually done three things. They have strengthened Russia's finances and independence, they have accelerated the destruction of the dollar and all fiat currencies connected to it and they are dealing an economc death blow to Europe's economy. By refusing Russian gas it has led to soaring prices and there is no viable alternative to replace the huge quantities of it. Gas is not just used for heating but also for generating base load electrical power. And Russian oil is used to supply a large chunk of the diesel fuel used in Europe and literally everything we buy and do, needs diesel. Diesel is the life blood of the real physical world. Any disruption there and we will all feel it very directly very quickly.

The Irish government are fully aware of the potentially dire consequences of these reckless decisions because they have made it known that they have emergency plans for fuel rationing. Unfortunately it seems the public don't fully realize the scale of the pending crisis and that it is all caused by war-mongering and the belligerent actions of US & NATO cheered on by our own clueless politicians. It is quite clear that every government and institution is captured by sinister elements and those in key positions of power and influence have either been bought off or blackmailed. This was all very evident during Covid, when we saw how governments moved in lockstep to a single script, orchestrated by the totalitarian forces in the background. The Epstein revelations gave the public an insight into the extent and depth of blackmail and how it reached the highest echelons of society.

This report whilst two weeks old is unlikely to have got any coverage in the mainstream media and it is still very relevant now.

A total of 6 young doctors died within two weeks of receiving the Covid booster jab after it was mandated at their hospitals. Three of the doctors were from the same hospital and died within days of each other. In the strange times we live it, the mainstream media, politicians and officials try to gaslight us all and tell us this is normal.

Aman Jabbi, long time Silicon Valley insider discusses the need for urgent action in order to stop the surveillance state before it controls every aspect of our lives.

Aman Jabbi is an engineer who was at the forefront of video and camera technology in Silicon Valley. He has co-founded two camera startups. If you have a camera in your phone, stream video or movies, he played a part in it.

Aman has made a excellent and frightening presentation on how facial recognition operated by AI behind any and all cameras is being used for the universal Digital Id for every person in the world and shows how this growing network of cameras and devices is creating a Digital Prison. It is already up and running in China and despite bland denials from politicians in the West that we are still free, he shows this is anything but the case and very importantly shows the scale of the rollout and the capability of these cameras and sensors as part of the "Smart Cities" drive.

The Far Left both in Ireland and elsewhere completely abandoned all principles they ever had by supporting lockdowns and denying bodily integrity during the Covid crisis. In many cases they supported the Zero Covid policy which would have led to further destruction of lives through lockdowns. It is widely acknowledged the lockdowns were ineffective and counter productive and hit the disadvantaged and poor the most, the very people, the working class that the Left purports to give a voice too. Not only that Lockdowns were used to strip all of us of our rights and freedom, in other words our basic human rights which the Left apparently fought for over the years. Worse still the Left has always promoted itself on a platform of women's rights and yet during lockdowns it is widely acknowledged that domestic violence increased greatly. Despite all of this the Left supported them. Lastly during the decades the Left has spent campaigning for abortion their central platform has always being bodily integrity. Yet when people -the very ones they claim to speak for, were often coerced and intimidated into taking the deadly vaccine or else loose their job, they never spoke out against it. This was against a backdrop of the entire media establishment cheer leading for it -the very same media the Left has so rightly criticizied in the past. Yet this time they sided with them.

In short the Left during Covid sold out on everything they stood for and it was against this backdrop the some people attended the local community meeting with speakers from the Socialist Party and others to ask if they were so concerned about workers where why weren't they concerned when many had gone through economic hardship and lost their jobs during Covid. And importantly would they support more lockdowns and the plan of the government to sign the WHO pandemic treaty which will strip us of any sovereignty.

As you can see these questions were too uncomfortable and instead resorted to the media tactic of accusing them using the same old tired cliches used by the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment

April 25, 2022. Zaur – Military serviceman of Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov’s Regiment:. Translated and subtitled by Leo V.

It’s possible that before I came here, I doubted [the stories] a little bit. But back then when we freed the first prisoners from the house, which was directly situated nearby the Azovstal’ [factory], when those prisoners and civilians came out from the basements, they hugged and kissed us. And told us that they are happy to see us. They cried with tears in their eyes! I then realized that I ended up exactly for… (holding back emotions) what was needed. And I don’t doubt one drop that it was the right idea.
