This is an account by a Chechen Soldier in Mariupol recalling his first combat experience against the Ukraine Neo Nazi Azov Battalion who have been taking hostage Ukrainians as human shields and how this became a reality for him.

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.

Dear Editor,

Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .

A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.

Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.

The conflict in Ukraine was not opened by Russia on February 24, but by Ukraine a week before. The OSCE is a witness to this. This peripheral conflict had been planned by Washington to impose a New World Order from which Russia, then China, were to be excluded. Don’t be fooled! read full story / add a comment

As usual she has more guts than anyone else and cuts through the relentless BS

The EU economic war against Russia does nothing to help innocent Ukrainian citizens, victims of this illegal war. Russia is undeterred, while EU citizens face disastrous inflation, rocketing energy costs, and a historic decline in living standards. This is madness…

All this pretense of the establishment that it is liberal, democratic and peace loving is sickening as they are anything but. In this report, we can see that the US is happily spending tax payers money to arm neo-nazi thugs in the Ukraine to uphold their own foreign policy objectives by using the latest technology of suicide drones. The report speaks for itself.

The $300 million lethal aid package for Ukraine that the Pentagon announced Friday will include the latest Switchblade combat drones, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed Tuesday.

According to Bloomberg, the White House previously announced a shipment of “series 300” Switchblade drones, which weigh 3.3 pounds, can fly about six miles and stay aloft for about 15 minutes, and are “designed to attack personnel and light vehicles” with a warhead roughly equivalent to a 40mm grenade.

The Left have always rightly and correctly criticized government narratives, their actions and policies and never more so in the case of foreign adventures and wars. However in the past 15 years the woke brigade has largely taken over and ultimately have ended up serving the interests of the neo liberal corporate elite. In the case of the Covid scamdemic the Left capitulated completely and became cheer leaders for tyrannical restrictions and lockdowns. Despite many on the Left recognizing Big Pharma is totally corrupt, they pushed the so called vaccines for which there is now overwhelming evidence to show they are downright dangerous and are both seriously injuring huge numbers of people and killing many too.

It is against this background of capitulation that there are still bright spots and a few relatively sane and honest people remaining and that one of the well known figures in Socialism, David North from the WSWS website has come out strongly against the MSM narrative. bursting their bubble and given an honest background and context to the Russian - Ukrainian conflict. His letter reproduced here is in response to a webinar in the US which clearly followed the mainstream narrative.

The only reasonable assumption is that the video included here is somehow fake for it is of a FG TD suggesting that Ireland should send weapons belonging to the Irish Defence forces to kill Russian soldiers.

This is the address of of former Vatican Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Viganò, in his declaration on Monday. Wh is it published here. Because it matters that even the official church denounces the tactics of Biden and NATO who provoke this war and are doing everything possible to give moral support to the Neo Nazis so as to prolong the war as long as possible for their own objectives.

The Russian Ukraine war is now is over a week long and for many who are trying to understand what it is all about that is proving difficult. The sheer scale of the relentless propaganda is astounding and the hate that is being encouraged and fueled for all things Russian is frightening. Once again as with the Covid scamdemic the way in which people have lapped up the fear porn and refused to carry out any level of critical thinking is scary.

One thing that is obvious to those who stop and think for a moment is the complete absence of any kind of context and background to the whole thing. We are just being relentlessly push to believe that Putin in Hitler 2.0 and it all hinges on him and that he is evil. There is also outright hate and racism being whipped up and there are many reports of Russian students being booted off their course and various Russians being cancelled. The aim here is to rebalance things a bit and provide that context so that a more informed view can be made of the situation read full story / add a comment

Wag the Dog?

With every major crisis - be it a fake pandemic or a manufactured war - comes further confirmation that the average man or woman on the street is hypnotised and has long lost the ability to think critically.

Without taking as much as 30 seconds to step out from the real-time MK Ultra mind-control projects of social media, the vast majority are jumping headfirst into MSM-driven emotionally-charged dialectics and reductive good-versus-evil narratives.

There is a lot of outright propaganda at the moment about the Russian operation to clear Ukraine of the Neo-Nazis and no it is definitely not the start of World War 3 as some outlets are suggesting. So it is against this background that it we bring attention to this article written by Mike Whitney giving his view on why the USA & it's vassal states UK and Europe have spent the last 8 years trying to provoke the Russian bear until finally it acted.

The Ukrainian crisis has nothing to do with Ukraine. It’s about Germany and, in particular, a pipeline that connects Germany to Russia called Nord Stream 2. Washington sees the pipeline as a threat to its primacy in Europe and has tried to sabotage the project at every turn. Even so, Nord Stream has pushed ahead and is now fully-operational and ready-to-go. Once German regulators provide the final certification, the gas deliveries will begin. German homeowners and businesses will have a reliable source of clean and inexpensive energy while Russia will see a significant boost to their gas revenues. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.

From the outset, the composition of the Defence Forces Commission was flawed. The list of members does not represent the citizens of Ireland in a balanced way. Of the fifteen commission members, two-thirds are pro-EU ex-military men and officials favouring expanding military spending; people who benefit from enhanced career opportunities, have vested interests in remuneration, careers, promotions, salaries, pensions and medals, resulting from an enlarged military budget allocation. Foreign agents, Haakon Bruun-Hanssen a Norwegian, Anja Dalgaard-Nielsen a Dane and Esa Pulkkinen a Finn, should have no place on neutral Ireland’s Defence Forces Commission.

There is a lot of intense media hysteria at the moment over an "imminent" Russia invasion of the Ukraine. It is of course pure hype and a distraction and part of the relentless campaign against all things Russian for who knows what reason. And Ireland like the obedient puppy of the Anglo-Saxon world has issued a call for all Irish to leave Ukraine immediately. They probably should have left years ago when the US installed a neo-nazi regime but that is a different matter. Some pundits might say where is the basis in this "it's all hype statement". Well it comes from the Ukraine president himself no less and evidence in this story from rt.com


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on his allies to share information about the alleged Russian invasion, prompting Russia to accuse the West of “mocking” the Ukrainians and common sense.

Operation Omicron which is an anagram for moronic has been ramping up in a big way in the last week. The whole thing like is based on lies and it is a co-ordinate program across both Europe and the US. It is the latest major offensive in the current war on humanity by the global corporate elite to get their technocratic tyrannical society over the line as they want to push to the next phase. Vaccine Impact have launched a scathing attack on it and we present it here

If you are among those who have not succumbed to the psychological warfare that has been inflicted upon the world through the “war against the COVID-19 virus” and remain unvaccinated with a healthy heart and sound mind, get ready for the next phase of this “war” against the “virus,” as Operation Omicron is about to be unleashed, and there are going to be massive casualties, all blamed on you and me, the unvaccinated.

I originally wrote this piece in September 2021 following the announcement by United States President Joe Biden that US forces would withdraw from Afghanistan, but never sought to publish the piece. The Irish Government is playing both sides on the matter of foreign affairs, calling for peace and claiming to be 'neutral' while actively supporting Western military imperialism. In this peice, I examine and criticise the involvement of Ireland in the Afghanistan War, with sources provided at the end.
