Is there a good written summary anywhere? That would be very helpful!

Russia has been collecting gold for a decade or so, and has instituted the "gold ruble" which is backed by gold plus a basket of commodities.

I doubt Russia is selling much gold right now. It's the opposite of their general strategy.

It works like a charm. Super easy to fix. I don't know why you would till have the problem. Just follow the instructions in the link.

The information I get from Telegram on Ukraine is outstanding and available nowhere else. Telegram was actually founded by a Russian.

Based on what Telegram actually does I really doubt it is FBI.

Just turn off the right buttons (see instructions) and it stops the saving of files.

They are seeing the merit of the gold ruble and trying to store wealth as gold.

When they got down to the nitty gritty they saw how much the refiners take and decided to get around that. The amount refiners reserve is unreasonable but customary in the field.

The only reason I am using Telegram is because there is important content there that is not available anywhere else. It's amazing what credible info I have found out there that would have been banned anywhere else.

The format is not ideal. It's relatively frictionless for me now but it took some getting used to.

Poop reveals not only his DNA but medical status, drugs being taken, medical prognosis, his habitual foods...

Remember when Hillary as SOS asked for DNA samples of all the world leaders? (Sorry I don't call the source for that.)

When Hillary was Secretary of State she gleefully had Khadaffi killed and the gold in Libya he had stockpiled to back the Gold Dinar disappeared.

How do you bring the gold back "legitimately"? You have a gold mine in Haiti and your brother handling it for you. That way you can sell the gold etc and nobody asks where it came from. The gold mine was a gold laundering operation.

Actually it was more involved: a cut with toad mucus dribbled into it, bathing in a cock's blood and other weird stuff was done - including a sedative. He may have been doomed when he arrived at the place having gotten something bad in his drink or admitted drugs taken the night before.

Scenarios:

These energy company oligarchs were unable to make payments due to the sanctions and war disruptions. They couldn't make the payment so they were liquidated mafia style by whoever owned them outside Russia.

or

Putin has declared war on the bad guys, and these were bad guys in league with the CIA. Putin had them liquidated.

or

These energy company oligarchs knew where the bodies were buried, where the money went etc. and were paid by the CIA over the years. Now that their protectors higher up in the FSB were arrested they were implicated. The CIA liquidated them before they could talk.

You have an abundance of wisdom. Thank you for sharing it with me.

There were some qualms about leaving NASA/JPL but the reality is that I would have had to be a lying ass kisser to remain there, and I'm not very good at that. They actually do as little science as possible so as to have an excuse to get more grant money.

I could tell you what I witnessed if you are interested. Perhaps you could narrow it down, as I have a long list of things witnessed over the years. Even before I worked there my brothers did so my experiences span decades.

Russia is playing chess while Ukraine is playing tug of war.

I've been following it for a while now and the Russian strategies are clearly brilliant. In contrast the Ukrainians/US et al go for things that look good on social media but have no strategic sense at all.

It reminds me of the Biden White House where everything is for show and nothing makes sense from a practical point of view.

Normally I do engage in discussions with people who disagree.

The problem is that I am a personal witness. My brother did the programming for reassembling the data stream into pictures. I did work as a scientist at JPL/NASA but I didn't like taking tax money from people for my salary so I left.

What do you do when you are a personal witness to something and someone says it never happened? They essentially say I am lying. It's hard to have a discussion with someone who simply says you are lying.

I saw with my own eyes. They say I'm a liar.

I welcome your advice on how to handle that. I'm stumped, and I really wonder if that person was just there to make us look stupid.

The SCOTUS unanimous ruling regarding flags was a pleasant surprise, and one that suggests that perhaps they are returning to a Constitutional basis for ruling. Whether they now felt safe enough to do so, or just got a conscience in the face of the horrors of the Biden administration is hard to tell from the outside.

That too. Both can be true.

Didn't Alwaleed just provide a lot of money to Musk to assist in his buyout of Twitter?

Yes he did:

Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk has raised more than $7 billion in equity commitments from 19 investors to back his purchase of Twitter.

The 19 include the tech billionaire’s friends, Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund and Prince al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing submitted Thursday.

Also among the investors are Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, cryptocurrency exchange Binance and venture capital giants Sequoia Capital, Fidelity Investments and Brookfield Asset Management, according to the SEC disclosure and reporting from The Wall Street Journal.

Perhaps he just bought his freedom.

Some of the hostages who escaped say they were workers at the factory who thought it would be a safe place to go when the bombardment was going on. They weren't Nazis.

Granted many in there are Nazis and some are families of Nazis, and some are Western military guys, but some are just people who took shelter and then taken hostage.

The vast majority of people are now immune, so less viruses are out there, so there are less viruses to mutate. Hence less variants.

Unless there is laboratory intervention (which there was at tome points) it is just a statistical thing. The more spins on the roulette wheel the more likely a certain number will come up. Less wheels spinning means less chance of a special number coming up.

Guys. You are embarrassing me. Yes we went to the moon.

How do I know? Because my two older brothers worked at JPL on Ranger through Voyager. I later worked for NASA in planetology as a scientist. I have touched hardware that is now way far out in space. My brother's name was inscribed with the other people's names on a piece of hardware that ended up on the moon.

I have to think some of the people pushing the idea are trying to make us look like nuts.

It is reasonable to send up a dummy instrumented with sensors to detect the many kinds of radiation found in space to design better space suits etc. I'm not ok with a lot of what NASA is doing that is wasteful, but this thing actually makes sense for them to do it.

It looks like there is a Canadian general trapped down in there. Also any highly placed Western military officers could provide useful intel. There were estimated to be about 400 non-Ukrainians "mercenaries" down there and about a thousand Ukrainians.

Part of the ceiling in Asovstal collapsed overnight - presumably due to the continuing artillery fire. Gruesome wounded people video from inside too.

That and also the fact that the Russians are kicking Ukrainian Azov butt big time, and it looks like they will be doing so for the next three weeks or so. What is going on is impressive and likely to become more so.
