Lab Leak Theory Proves War On Information The Greatest Domestic Threat: Bobby Burack

by Bobby Burack February 28, 2023, 11:58 am 3

The Covid-19 pandemic affirmed arrays of suspicions, from government collusion with Big Tech to a compromised relationship with China to the influence of Big Pharma. Most notably, the virus hallmarked the war of information.

A pandemic of untruths.

But not from the so-called conspiracy theorists and right-wing grifters. Rather, Covid confirmed it was the handlers of information, from “experts” to “journalists,” who intercepted the spread of accurate information.

Sunday, the Wall Street Journal revealed that the U.S. Energy Department recently concluded that a laboratory leak in Wuhan likely caused SARS-CoV-2.

The news is quite simple to fathom. A coronavirus originated inside a lab where Chinese scientists studied coronavirus and practiced gain-of-function research some 400 yards from where China allegedly first discovered the specific coronavirus.

Yet it wasn’t such common sense to those who claim to uphold the truth. NPR called the lab leak hypothesis a “baseless conspiracy.” Vox declared the idea simply “wrong.” The World Socialist Website called the lab argument the “greatest falsehood in human history.” Dr. Fauci dismissed the possibility entirely, as he helped fund the research.

In Aug. 2021, a chief New York Times editor instructed staffers not to investigate the origins of Covid. Instead, the editor ordered them to push only a zoonotic origin.

Do not be a journalist, The Times warned staffers. Print what the government tells you. That the staff did. The outlet’s resident “Covid Reporter” Apoorva Mandavilli called anyone pondering the lab leak theory a “racist“.

The Science™ and the press conspired to diminish anyone who dared to question the idea that a hungry exotic-eating Chinese person caused the pandemic by the transmission of bat to pangolin to human. The duo sought to destroy anyone who wondered aloud if the Chinese government is responsible for 6.9 million deaths worldwide.

And Joe Biden called white supremacy “the most lethal threat in the homeland,” not lies about the origins of a virus that upended the lives of virtually every American.

Still, burying the origin is a mere bullet point in the tale of the past three years.

Covid-19 exposed our press and government as deceivers of information — as either accomplices to the greatest crime in human history or grossly incompetent. They were wrong. Wrong about it all.

Masks did not stop the spread. The vaccine did not prevent infection. Plexiglass barriers did not work. School closures did not protect children from harm and, in fact, did great harm. Business closures did not serve the best interest of the community. The experts did not accurately count the national fatality rate and still do not.

And now, everyone knows what any clear-thinking person deduced from the start: the virus did not originate from a wet market.

Those were The Big Lie(s). Ruses of the century.

And unfortunately, much of society abided by the commands of their leaders. They had no choice. The average news consumer did not have access to accurate information.

Those who sought and reported on the truth often had to do so on the fringes, as censorship cost them access to the proverbial megaphone.

In 2020, Twitter banned Dr. Li-Meng Yan for publicizing clues that the pandemic originated from a lab in Wuhan. Big Tech punished her for questioning the U.S. and Chinese governments.

Messaging becomes perception and perception becomes reality. And those who controlled the messaging on Covid deceived those who receive.

Experts and politicians turned citizens into political pawns as they gained unusual control over society. Big Pharma turned patients into guinea pigs for an experimental vaccine as Pfizer executives bought yachts.

Journalists neglected the core principles of their field: to ask questions, seek the truth, be skeptical, and hold those in power accountable. The pinheads in the newsrooms merely parroted the talking points of the Democratic Party.

The consequences of the #CovidLies exceed the escalation of the mail-in ballots that led to the ascension of Joe Biden. Local businesses have not recovered from the government locking down their lives and work. Students cannot undo the lost years of quality education and time spent away from their peers. The appalling rise in suicide rates, alcoholism, and drug addiction is irreversible.

The consequences of Covid messaging are ongoing. Answers remain scarce.

Earlier this month, a Mayo Clinic study found that heart attacks in people ages 25 to 44 increased by 30 percent compared to the expected number over the first two years of the pandemic.

Why is that? We can’t say for certain.

However, the very group that dismissed the lab leak theory and demanded the masking of children says the rise is absolutely, definitely not the result of the experimental vaccine known to cause myocarditis, the inflammation of the heart muscle.

Dr. Fauci told CBS that even asking the question is a form of disinformation, and it makes you a propagandist.

“Isn’t [this conversation] horrifying?” was actually a question CBS asked.

“It is horrifying,” responded Fauci.

That guy put forth the greatest display of anti-science failure on record.

Through censorship and dutiful media outlets, Facui and his ilk browbeat citizens into acquiescing with their orders. Conflicting opinions rarely crept into the mainstream during the pandemic.

The spread of faulty and unchallenged information culminated with school years of masked children, repeated jabs in the arm, the censorship of the dialogue, atypical rates of heart inflammation among young adults, and a grave imbalance between state and man.

Most Americans didn’t learn they were duped until they were already triple-vaxxed and taking their masks off between bites at a half-filled diner. The New York Times admitted just last week that mask mandates proved useless, almost three years later.

Perhaps the U.S. can now investigate China as it has had ample time to cover up creating a global pandemic that killed millions of obese and elderly persons.

Limiting access to the truth is the first step toward a modern dystopia. Persecuting the curious is a precursor to a diminished democracy.

Information is empowering. Yet, the truth is scarce. You have to claw for it. And the lapdogs in the media might assassinate your character if you uncover the most inconvenient of truths.

Covid proved the war of information to be the most lethal threat to the homeland –– a pandemic to which, unlike Covid, all demographics are susceptible.

The Biden administration’s efforts to revise and extend radical policies affecting the culture of the U.S. military and the status of certain service members may make 2023 one of the most transformative years in the history of this nation’s armed services, changing the institution beyond recognition, policy analysts and commentators have told The Epoch Times.

President Biden tends to rely on executive orders and revisions to past instructions to force through far-reaching changes and remake the military, especially with regard to official policy on transgender service members. These orders and their consequences are not always widely reported, hence the changes do not always undergo extensive public scrutiny or debate, the experts say.

The changes affect everything from the ease with which a male service member may choose to identify as female and thereby gain access to women’s facilities and sports teams, to the etiquette that commanders must use when referring to transgender persons or issues.

“The public pays little attention to the internal activities in federal agencies, even the Defense Department. When these stories pop up, they are quickly overwhelmed by bigger events,” Keith Naughton, the principal of Silent Majority Strategies, a Germantown, Maryland-based think tank, told The Epoch Times.

“It is a stark reminder of the power of the president and the executive branch, the relatively low power of the courts, and the importance of winning elections,” Naughton added.

In agreement with this judgment is Susan Katz Keating, the publisher of Soldier of Fortune magazine and a commentator on military policy.

“A lot of this goes under the radar because the public doesn’t really watch for it. So many changes are ‘stealth directives’ that don’t get noticed while the public pays attention to other issues,” Keating told The Epoch Times.

Furtive Actions

The administration has not waited for public attention to catch up with its plans to remake the military according to a highly specific set of criteria, the experts say. While changes have been underway for years in policies concerning race and gender diversity, and have gained momentum under President Joe Biden, the administration’s resolve to refashion the military into what it considers a more inclusive and representative institution is especially evident in the area of transgender policy.

Recent revisions to Department of Defense (DoD) rules originally issued under the administration of President Barack Obama are indicative of the aggressive stance of the current administration, according to a new policy analysis prepared by the Center for Military Readiness (CMR), a Livonia, Michigan-based nonprofit. The analysis is entitled “Biden Pentagon Quietly Expands Woke Transgender Policies in the Military.”

The CMR’s analysis compares the Obama-era directive, DoD Instruction 1300.28—InService Transition for Transgender Service Members, with the new version incorporating alterations made at Biden’s behest on Dec. 20, 2022.

The analysis cites significant differences, namely, changes to approved DoD vocabulary to foster a supposedly more inclusive environment for transgender persons; extending official transgender policies to apply to Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) programs and military service academies; holding commanders personally liable for any “biases against transgender individuals”; permitting cross-dressing and other activities that fall under the rubric of “transitioning,” not only off-base but even on military installations; approving “de-transitioning” procedures in certain circumstances; and imposing restrictions on the gathering and disclosure of data concerning “incidents of harmful behavior” that involve transgender personnel and/or sexual orientation.

None of these changes serve the purpose of military readiness, combat effectiveness, the minimization of U.S. casualties, or any of the other criteria that have guided military policy in the past, the analysis contends. Rather, they serve a highly specific political and social agenda more in line with the ideological bent of people outside the armed forces.

“These mandates are prime examples of woke-ism in the military, defined as policies that impose progressive ideology and take them to extremes with enforced compliance, even if it hurts the institution,” the CMR’s analysis states.

‘Woke’ Newspeak

The analysis details a number of examples of a new jargon regarding transgender persons and their status that DoD Instruction 1300.28, incorporating Biden’s changes, now makes part of official military lingo. For instance, the term “self-identified gender” has replaced the phrase “preferred gender,” a change that the CMR takes to indicate a new way of looking at the question of gender identity.

“The nuance suggests that if a person ‘self-identifies’ as a person of the opposite sex, they must be treated as such, even though changes in appearance cannot change biological sex,” the CMR analysis states.

“The DoD Instruction rests on the false premise that a different ‘gender role,’ if recognized by a bureaucratic change in a person’s ‘gender marker,’ is the same as or equivalent to a change in biological sex. Therefore, a man claiming to be a woman must be treated as a woman, and vice versa,” the analysis continues.

The CMR views one potential consequence of extending Obama-era and current transgender policies to the civilian ROTC and service academies as the very real possibility that male cadets or midshipmen may join women’s athletic teams or even end up with assignments to live in female quarters. The analysis notes that male athletes who chose to “self-identify” as women have won scholarships and prevailed in championships where the contestants in theory were all women. It argues that enrollment in service academies may continue to decline as a consequence of such abuses.

The problems and controversies are likely to continue to escalate given the ease with which male cadets can obtain official classification as women without having undergone sex-change surgery, the analysis continues. A male cadet can get approval from a doctor to change his gender classification within the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) and thereby become eligible to use female restrooms, locker rooms, and living quarters. The CMR’s analysis quotes a phrase that recurs in the DoD Instruction: “For facilities subject to regulation by the military, service members will use those berthing, bathroom, or shower facilities associated with their gender marker in DEERS.”

In such a scenario, the possibilities for widespread violations of privacy and sexual misconduct are obvious, the CMR policy analysis suggests.

The net effect of the Biden administration’s active remaking of the military in accordance with progressive principles is a rapid decline in respect for and trust in the institution among those who made the commitment to serve. The CMR’s policy analysis cites a Heritage Foundation study which found that 68 percent of active-duty personnel have concerns about the increasing politicization of the military, and that the same percentage said these concerns would lead them to have doubts about encouraging their offspring to pursue a military career.

The Epoch Times has reached out to the DoD for comment.

Real Clear Defense
Elaine Donnelly

The nation is worried about serious national security threats, including Chinese spy aircraft, but the Department of Defense seems pre-occupied with misplaced priorities. “Woke” policies are taking progressive ideologies to extremes with enforced compliance, even if it hurts the institution.

Since January 2021, Defense Department officials have expanded woke transgender mandates in significant ways. A comprehensive CMR Policy Analysis titled Biden Pentagon Quietly Expands Woke Transgender Policies in the Military, summarized here, compares Joe Biden/Lloyd Austin directives to the 2016 transgender policies of Barack Obama and Ashton Carter.

As in the Obama years, the Biden/Austin policy fully embraces the idea that individuals can change their “sex assigned at birth to a different gender role.” Department of Defense Instruction 1300.28, updated on December 20, 2022, has changed the official vocabulary of this pseudo-science, using the phrase “self-identified gender” instead of “preferred gender” throughout.

The DoD Instruction stipulates that if a person “self-identifies” as a person of the opposite sex, and if the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) changes a person’s bureaucratic “gender marker,” a man claiming to be a woman must be treated as a woman, and vice versa.

Military commanders, doctors and nurses, chaplains, and military men and women at all levels must endorse and act on this ideological belief or suffer career penalties if they don’t. Alleged “biases against transgender individuals,” which are prohibited, could include anything from “misgendering” people with the wrong pronouns to expressions of concern about medically questionable hormone treatments or surgeries for adults or military dependent children.

Individuals who are confused about gender identity deserve compassionate counseling, competent medical care, and complete information about serious risks and irreversible consequences of “gender affirming” treatments that do not change biological sex. Instead, a self-diagnosis of gender dysphoria permits only one course of treatment, pushing the servicemember toward life-changing, often-irreversible transgender “transition,” without an independent “second opinion.”

Commanders are directed to consult with designated “experts,” called Service Central Coordination Cells. The SCCCs have no responsibility for military operations or any obligation to put the needs of the patient first.

Biden’s regulations do not protect or even mention rights of religious liberty for chaplains and people of faith. Nor do they provide options for doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel who object to transgender ideology on moral or ethical grounds.

Once a military doctor approves, transgender transition can be deemed “complete” with or without surgical alteration of healthy body parts. At that point, as the DoD Instruction states several times: “[S]ervice members will use those berthing, bathroom, and shower facilities associated with their gender marker in DEERS.”

This policy denies human biological realities and violates minimal expectations of personal privacy and modesty between men and women. Human dilemmas are discussed in PowerPoint training slide “vignettes,” such as a “female to male” soldier announcing a pregnancy.

Vignette 8 portrays a soldier transitioned from male to female, without “sex-reassignment surgery,” who wants to use female-designated showers. Another scenario describes a female soldier who is experiencing tension with a “transgender female” roommate.

This is a trick question, since both the discomforted female soldier and a commander who tries to find a solution likely would be accused of “biases against transgender individuals.” Why should a tank commander at Fort Hood have to deal with pronoun etiquette and sticky scenarios instead of training his troops to fight an enemy force?

The latest DoD Instruction admits that some service members who have “completed a gender transition” may not have “resolved the gender dysphoria.” Without any estimate of costs or consequences, additional medical procedures are authorized “If a return to their previous gender is medically required.”

Biden/Austin directives specifically involve the military service academies and ROTC (contract) programs, inviting controversies like those affecting civilian female athletes who have lost competitions against biological men.

Revised rules also permit cross-dressing and other “transitioning” behaviors while in “on-duty status.” Previously, time off for “real life experience” (RLE) living as a person of the opposite sex could only occur off-base and off-duty, often for weeks or months.

Whether intended or not, the revised policy’s approval of on-base cross-dressing likely will increase “LGBT Pride” celebrations featuring drag queen performances and “family friendly” story hours for children at military bases worldwide.

When problems ensue, how will we know? In 2018, then-Secretary of Defense James Mattis testified that problems with transgender policies were not being reported up the chain of command because they were considered “personal and private.”

Doubling down in December 2022, the DoD released a new instruction, DoDI 6400.11, which restricts (without high-level permission) release of information about “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” “transgender-related information,” and “incidents of harmful behaviors.”

Every year, the Pentagon releases non-personal statistics on sexual assaults, in excruciating detail. Why are officials restricting access to data on “incidents of harmful behaviors” and “transgender-related information.” Congress needs to find out.

A recent independent, high-tech survey on politicization of the military done by the Heritage Foundation found that among active-duty respondents, 80% said the “changing of policy to allow unrestricted service by transgender individuals” has decreased their trust in the military.

Sixty-eight percent of active-duty responses reported seeing a “growing politicization,” which is affecting their decision to encourage their children to join the military.

In view of recruiting problems, the 118th Congress should renew previous demands for information on woke policies. Congress also should consider mandating that all Defense Department agencies and educational institutions return to recognizing scientific realities of biological sex, not “self-identified gender.”

That idea and more are incorporated in legislation just proposed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rep. James Banks (R-IN), called the Ensuring Military Readiness Act of 2023.

Servicemen and women deserve reality-based health care programs, with protection of the rights of doctors and nurses whose medical ethics or religious convictions differ from transgender ideology. Women also deserve separate-sex athletic teams and reasonable privacy in female-only living facilities.

White House and Pentagon leaders who try to deny, dissemble, or withhold information on the existence or results of woke policies in the military are undermining their own credibility. Americans are awake and aware, and they will hold lawmakers accountable for woke-ism that weakens our military in an increasingly dangerous world.

FBI Charges 8 Pro-Life Advocates, They Could Face Decade in Prison for Saving Babies

Just weeks after taking a loss in federal court against Mark Houck, the FBI is back trying to put peaceful pro-life Americans in prison for protesting abortion.

Amid accusations that it is targeting pro-lifers to silence and intimidate, the Justice Department has charged 8 pro-life activists with violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act for blocking the entrance of an abortion clinic in 2020.

As LifeNews reported, a Philadelphia jury found pro-life father Mark Houck not guilty on both counts in the case of the bogus charges the Biden administration filed against him. Houck’s case involved an incident where an abortion faciltiy escort bullied him and his minor son.

That situation is different from the blockade that a handful of pro-life advocates engaghed in at a Michigan abortion facility that the FBI alleges violated the FACE Act. In a statement, federal prosecutors announced indictments against activists Calvin Zastrow, Eva Zastrow, Justin Phillips, Heather Idoni, Chester Gallagher, Eva Edl, Caroline Davis and Joel Curry for holding an August 2020 blockade of an abortion business in Sterling Heights.

“The indictment returned by a federal grand jury alleges that on Aug. 27, 2020, all eight defendants engaged in a conspiracy to prevent the Sterling Heights clinic from providing, and patients there from receiving reproductive health services,: the Department of Justice contends. The indictment claims the grouo of pro-life advcoates broke federal law by actively prohibiting access to the abortion center.

According to the indictment, Gallagher advertised the Sterling Heights clinic blockade on social media, and he and Curry livestreamed the incident. The defendants convened at a location near the Sterling Heights clinic, where an uncharged co-conspirator who recorded the incident announced that the defendants were “going over to stand in front of the door” and “interpose.”

This is the second case in which these pro-life advocates have faced federal charges.

Last year, 11 activists were charged with FACE Act violations stemming from their 2021 “blockade” of an abortion clinic in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. This blockade was peaceful, pro-life activist AJ Hurley told The Daily Signal on Wednesday evening.

Several of the activists were arrested on the day of the blockade, after reportedly successfully preventing abortions from taking place at the clinic for most of the day, but police reportedly released these activists later in the day after they posted bail for misdemeanor charges, the pro-life news outlet Live Action reported.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee announced that Chester Gallagher, 73, of Lebanon, Tennessee; Heather Idoni, 58, of Michigan; Calvin Zastrow, 57, of Michigan; Caroline Davis, 24, of Michigan; Coleman Boyd, 51, of Bolton, Mississippi; Dennis Green, 56, of Cumberland, Virginia; and Paul Vaughn, 55, of Centerville, Tennessee, are charged with “conspiracy against rights secured by the FACE Act, and committing FACE Act violations.”

Hurley, a pro-life activist who is friends with many of those charged, told The Daily Signal that the FBI raided Gallagher’s home on Wednesday morning with “guns drawn.” Hurley was not physically present but said he was alerted to the alleged raid by his friends.

Eva Edl, 87, of Aiken South Carolina; Eva Zastro, 24, of Dover, Arkansas; James Zastro, 25, of Eldon, Missouri; and Paul Place, 24, of Centerville, Tennessee, are all charged with committing FACE Act violations as well, the DOJ release said.

Gallagher reportedly used social media to promote pro-life events scheduled for March 2021 in the Nashville area. His fellow pro-life activists, which the Justice Department release calls “co-conspirators,” used “Facebook to coordinate travel and logistics and to identify other participants for the blockade.”

If the pro-life activists are convicted, those charged with conspiracy could spend 11 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000, while the others face up to a year in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

URGENT ALERT: U.S. Government Issues Level 4 Travel Advisory – Americans Told To Leave Russia Immediately! Start Of WWIII?

2023 02 13 08 47 11 breaking us government issues travel advisory warns all us citizens to leave


Written by Steve Cannon for USSA News.

The U.S. State Department has issued its highest level of travel advisory, Level 4, urging American citizens to immediately leave Russia due to the ongoing war with neighboring Ukraine and the risks of harassment and wrongful detention for U.S. citizens.

Key Takeaways:

U.S. government issues Level 4 travel advisory for Russia
American citizens advised to leave Russia immediately
Risks of harassment and wrongful detention cited as reasons for the advisory
The situation in Russia remains unpredictable and dangerous for American citizens, and the U.S. government is urging them to leave the country as soon as possible.

The United States government has issued a Level 4 travel advisory for Russia, advising all American citizens to immediately depart the country. The advisory cites the ongoing war with neighboring Ukraine and the potential for harassment and wrongful detention of U.S. citizens as the main reasons for the warning.

The U.S. State Department’s travel advisory system ranges from Level 1, which advises caution, to Level 4, which advises against all travel. The current advisory for Russia marks the highest level of alert issued by the State Department.

The Russia-Ukraine war is nearing its first anniversary on February 24th, and there are concerns that Moscow may be amassing troops for a new offensive. This, combined with the unpredictable consequences of the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces and the possibility of terrorism, has led the U.S. government to issue this advisory.

The U.S. has previously issued a similar warning to its citizens just days after the invasion and again in September, when Moscow ordered a call-up of reservist forces. Despite this, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed the U.S. warning, saying it is “not a new thing.”

The recent prisoner swap of Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout for U.S. basketball star Brittney Griner has only added to the heightened tensions between the two countries. Griner’s trial and sentencing were decried by the U.S., and it has elevated the plight of former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who is being held by Moscow on suspicion of spying.

It is important for American citizens in Russia to exercise increased caution due to the risk of wrongful detentions and to depart the country as soon as possible.


Q: Why has the U.S. government issued a Level 4 travel advisory for Russia?
A: The U.S. government has issued a Level 4 travel advisory for Russia due to the ongoing war with neighboring Ukraine and the potential for harassment and wrongful detention of U.S. citizens.

Q: What is the State Department’s travel advisory system?
A: The U.S. State Department’s travel advisory system ranges from Level 1, which advises caution, to Level 4, which advises against all travel.

Q: What should American citizens in Russia do?
A: American citizens in Russia are advised to immediately depart the country and exercise increased caution due to the risk of wrongful detentions.

Biden’s Bombing
The deeper meaning of the American attack on the Nord Stream pipeline.

Josiah Lippincott


February 12, 2023

On September 26, 2022 Joe Biden unilaterally declared war on both Russia and Germany. This, at least, is the only logical conclusion if the allegations by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh last week are true. Hersh maintains, based on claims from an anonymous source within the White House, that Joe Biden skirted congressional notification while ordering the U.S. Navy to plant remote-controlled explosives on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Baltic last year.

The Nord Stream undersea pipelines, when fully operational, could supply over a third of Europe’s energy needs by shipping cheap Russian natural gas from the Arctic into the heart of Europe. The mysterious explosions that ripped through both pipelines last fall, forcibly cut off Germany from cheap Russian natural gas—an outcome openly favored by the United States for years. As long as Europe remained dependent on Russian natural gas, the major continental powers had a powerful reason to maintain relatively cordial relations with the Russian government. Nord Stream had been one of Putin’s most potent diplomatic bargaining chips with Europe during his war in Ukraine.

The American foreign policy complex well understood this dynamic. In February 2022, just weeks before the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, Joe Biden told a journalist at the White House that if Russia were to invade, it would mean the “end” of the Nord Stream pipeline. When pressed on how he would accomplish this, Biden simply stated that he “promised” the pipeline would no longer be operable.

Hersh argues that Biden kept his word. The U.S. Navy, working with its Norwegian allies, was able to identify the ideal spots for detonation and then planted explosives under the cover of a large-scale NATO sea exercise in the summer of 2022.

Western journalists in the immediate aftermath of the explosion speculated that it had been the product of a Russian attack. According to this theory, the Russians had, for unknown reasons, blown up their own pipeline. This claim always rang hollow. Why would Moscow destroy its own infrastructure when it could just as easily turn off the flow of natural gas at will while pursuing a strategy of geopolitical flexibility?

The United States, on the other hand, had the motive, the opportunity, and the capability to carry out the attack. Biden and his lackeys openly displayed hostility to the pipeline’s continued existence. Hersh’s reporting simply validates what any common-sense observer could already see: the ostensibly “neutral” United States had launched an economically destructive attack against a geopolitical rival and a major European ally.

The sheer hubris of the alleged assault boggles the mind. If, as seems clear, Joe Biden followed through on his word and had the Nord Stream pipelines disabled, it puts the lie to all the high-minded talk about defending “democracy” in the West. No American voted for conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia. Congress did not declare war, as the Constitution mandates. Nor did the United States make any bones of consulting with its ostensible European allies.

Germany, it turns out, is not a sovereign country. Seymour Hersh alleges that Biden browbeat German Chancellor Olaf Scholz into accepting the destruction of Nord Stream. No self-respecting national leader could accept such terms. Certainly not one who values independence and freedom of action.

There is a deeper truth at the bottom of the Batlic, amidst the Nord Stream wreckage. It isn’t just Germany that is no longer a sovereign power—in fact, the very concept of the nation-state has been destroyed. All of Europe is an American satrapy. France, England, Italy, Austria, Luxembourg—these petty powers have no real existence as independent entities. They are neither economically nor militarily self-reliant. They cannot even secure their needed energy requirements without outside intervention.

Africa and South America, as a whole, are little better. Will anyone pretend Nigeria or Peru are independent nations that could stand up to a concerted American assault? In Asia, the Gulf States are little more than American-sanctioned outposts. Would Bahrain exist without America? Would Kuwait? In the Far East, Japan is still occupied by American forces. India has no meaningful modern military tradition worth mentioning. China became the manufacturing capital of the world because of explicit policy choices made in Washington, D.C.

This is not a new development. The nation-state died in 1945. The mid-20th century Anglo-American-Soviet alliance made sure of it. American liberals and Soviet communists at Tehran, Yalta, and Potsdam marched in complete lockstep on the future of the world order. There were tensions, of course, but there was no doubt in the minds of either Franklin Roosevelt or Josef Stalin that the postwar order would be fundamentally leftist.

Both liberals and communists could agree that the highest human aim was the satisfaction of man’s material needs (filling his stomach) and the elevation of the oppressed. For the communists, such a world would come into being with the global revolution of the proletariat. Liberals, on the other hand, thought it could come into being by exporting McDonald’s, blue jeans, and rap music on a global scale.

In our own time, even this difference has disappeared. The American Left now openly encourages the “marginalized” and “oppressed” to fight back against “systemic racism” on a global scale. American embassies across the planet fly the pride flag and display Black Lives Matter signs. The economic proletariat under communism transformed into a racial proletariat under liberalism.

The modern American state, just like the USSR, engages in widespread censorship, surveillance, and economic central planning. The COVID lockdowns showed that paeons to freedom in the West are an utter farce. In a state of emergency our rulers will seize whatever of our rights they want to seize.

The nation-state definitionally relies on the premise of a fundamental equality between countries. The Declaration of Independence, for instance, asserts that the “powers of the earth” exist in a “separate and equal station.”

Moreover, the Declaration holds that “free and independent states” have “full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce” among other authorities. This was the old order. It doesn’t exist anymore. Russia, in the eyes of the United States government, has no right to “levy war” against Ukraine. Germany has no right to “establish commerce” in natural gas with Russia. In modern liberal eyes, there are aggressors (the bad guys) and the victims (the good guys).

In this Marvel-movie understanding of foreign policy, the United States is always the hero and the villains are anyone who steps out of line with “liberal democracy,” which just means gay rights, feminism, antiracism, and, as of five minutes ago, transgenderism. Russia is not a sovereign power but an aggressor state. In this framework, Putin and Hitler are equivalent. In this great cosmic battle between good and evil there is no option for America simply to stand aside.

The destruction of the nation-state meant the death of neutrality, the older laws of war, and the distinction between civilians and soldiers. During World War II, American bombers hammered cities full of women and children with conventional and atomic weapons in the name of defeating tyranny. The Soviet Red Army, for its part, engaged in a campaign of mass rape and ethnic cleansing in Eastern Europe as it pushed into the heart of Western civilization. FDR put tens of thousands of Japanese-Americans into camps. Stalin murdered 10 million of his own citizens with starvation policies and forced labor.

This is the spiritual core of the “rules-based international order.” This is what it is.

Today, a transnational ruling “elite” centered in Washington, D.C. exerts quasi-planetary rule in the name of “human rights.” It is wrong to call this arrangement in any way American. Ordinary middle-class voters in the heartland have zero say in the methods and ends of this system. Americans, of course, are forced to pay, in blood and treasure, to keep this framework in place.

There are cracks in the system, however. Despite the West’s attempt to “destroy” Russia’s economy—a move that, if successful, would result in the mass killing of civilians—Putin remains in power. Despite the uniparty D.C. regime’s best efforts, Donald Trump managed to attain the heights of the presidency in 2016, breaking the foreign policy consensus on immigration, trade, and war in the process. The Afghanistan debacle in 2021 revealed just how limited American military force really is.

The Nord Stream bombing displays enormous chutzpah from the American ruling elite. But it is also a clarion call for all those with eyes to see and ears to hear: A world dominated by D.C. is a world without freedom and real political life. Europe will never again be a heart of culture and civilization as long as it remains in the thrall of D.C.’s power. Until that yoke is thrown off, Europe will remain a medieval history theme park, its churches empty, its militaries laughable, and its people morally and spiritually degraded. Americans outside the hallowed halls of financial and political power in New York, D.C., and Silicon Valley are little better off.

For those who dream of a better world, the path is clear: The postwar international order needs to die. Only after its demise can men of high vision begin the process of carving out a new, more free, more noble, world order.

Emails Show National Archives Secretly Coordinated with Biden’s Lawyers to Retrieve Classified Docs from Penn Biden Center Before Midterm Elections

The National Archives on Friday released 74 pages of emails showing an Archives lawyer coordinating with President Joe Biden’s attorneys to secretly retrieve classified materials from the Penn Biden Center before the 2022 midterm elections.

According to House oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY), the Archives was previously instructed by either the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) to hide initial revelations of the Biden classified document scandal from the American people.

In addition, the establishment media reported at least three times that Biden and the DOJ agreed to hide the scandal from public view with likely no plans to disclose it until the scandal was leaked to CBS News on January 9, weeks after the initial trove was found by Biden’s personal lawyers November 2.

The emails released Friday due to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Bloomberg, show the Archives secretly coordinating with and accommodating Biden’s personal attorneys to retrieve classified records. The emails also show questions were raised about whether classified materials were also stored in Boston and Philadelphia.

The initial reason or cause for the search at the Penn Biden Center by Biden’s attorneys remains unknown.

The emails indicate Biden’s personal attorneys and Archives lawyer Gary Stern had a “conversation” as early as November 4 about the classified scandal.

On November 7, one day before the midterm elections, Stern emailed Biden’s personal lawyers Bob Bauer and Pat Moore to arrange a time to secretly collect materials in a “US Gov van” from the Penn Biden Center in Washington, DC.

“Bob/Pat, following our conversation on Friday, we would like to make arrangements for our staff to come back to the DC PennBiden Center space to assess the remaining boxes and take custody of whichever ones we deem appropriate for further review,” Stern wrote Bauer and Moore.

A second email from November 7 shows more accommodation from the Archives. Stern asked Biden’s lawyers if personnel from the Archives could return to the Penn Biden Center “to assess the remaining boxes and take custody of whichever ones we deem appropriate for further review.”

Bauer said the Archives could return and pick up more documents the next day, and noted that he was “also currently checking to determine whether there are any similar materials in the Pennsylvania Penn-Biden space, and we will report back to you today.”

Stern also told Moore to ensure the boxes of materials were kept in a secure location. “Please ensure that the boxes in your office in Boston remain secure in a locked space and are not accessed by anyone,” he said in relation to the Boston location.

The emails come after the Archives failed to provide information about the document scandal to Comer before the January 24 deadline. Comer called the missed deadline “very disappointing.”

Comer has also said the Archives was previously instructed by either the White House or the DOJ to hide initial revelations of the Biden classified document scandal from the American people.

“There are only two people that could have given those orders, and that’s either the Department of Justice with [Attorney General] Merrick Garland or the White House with Joe Biden,” Comer told Fox News.

“I don’t think we would know about these documents had it not been for investigative reporting, so we want to know why the administration wasn’t transparent sooner,” Comer said.

Seymour Hersh reveals how the US blew up Nord Stream 2

In his Substack debut, Seymour Hersh exposes the US role in blowing up the Russia-Germany gas pipelines, and a major off-ramp to peace. 

Aaron Maté

Feb 8

Seymour Hersh, one of the most decorated and impactful journalists of all time, is now on Substack. And he’s out with a scoop: the inside story of how the US government blew up Nord Stream 2, the pipelines built to transmit cheap Russian energy to Germany and other European states. 

You can read the piece here: 

Seymour Hersh

How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline

NORD STREAM The U.S. Navy’s Diving and Salvage Center can be found in a location as obscure as its name—down what was once a country lane in rural Panama City, a now-booming resort city …

  • Hersh reports that planning for the covert operation began in late 2021. It was undertaken at the behest of National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, who was said to be “delivering on the desires of the President.” Last June, Navy divers operating under the cover of a NATO exercise, BALTOPS 22, planted the deap-sea bombs. The explosives were triggered three months later, in September. 
  • As Hersh notes, the destruction of the pipeline fulfilled a major geopolitical US aim. If brought online, Nordstream 2 would “double the amount of cheap gas that would be available to Germany and Western Europe,” and “provide enough gas for more than 50 percent of Germany’s annual consumption.” Accordingly, “Washington was afraid that countries like Germany would be reluctant to supply Ukraine with the money and weapons it needed to defeat Russia.” 
  • It is noteworthy that this plan was formulated in late 2021 — not only when Russian troops were massing on Ukraine’s border, but also when Russia proposed extensive draft treaties to the US and NATO for resolving its security concerns in Ukraine and other surrounding European states. Now we learn that when the US rejected Russia’s core demands — refusing to even discuss the issue of NATO expansion — it was moving ahead with a plan to blow up two pipelines that, if operational, would deepen ties between Russia and the rest of Europe, thereby making a proxy war in Ukraine more difficult. 
  • This explains why, as Hersh notes, senior Biden administration officials could not conceal their glee when the pipelines exploded last September. The bombing of Nord Stream 2, Secretary of State Antony Blinken declared, was a “tremendous strategic opportunity.” 
  • Aaron Maté @aaronjmate

According to @SecBlinken, the Nord Stream pipeline bombing “offers tremendous strategic opportunity for the years to come.” Too bad that this tremendous opportunity for DC bureaucrats will come at the expense of everyone else, especially this coming winter.

9:39 PM ∙ Oct 1, 2022


Senior State Department official Victoria Nuland recently followed suit by telling Sen. Ted Cruz that she, along with the White House, is “very gratified to know that Nord Stream 2 is now… a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea.”

Aaron Maté @aaronjmate

At a Senate hearing, top US diplomat Victoria Nuland celebrated the Nord Stream 2 pipeline bombing: “Senator Cruz, like you, I am, and I think the administration is, very gratified to know that Nord Stream 2 is now, as you like to say, a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea.”

12:09 AM ∙ Jan 27, 2023


In all likelihood, Hersh’s story will be shunned or dismissed by an establishment media that has promoted the notion that Russia was somehow responsible for bombing its own pipeline (though, as Hersh notes, some have recently, albeit meekly, tried to walk that back). As I wrote in October

An illustrative New York Times report on the Nord Stream bombing declares that “much of the speculation about responsibility has focused on Russia.” According to the Times’ established standards, the notion that Moscow would detonate its own $20 billion pipeline is perfectly consistent: one week earlier, the Times reportedthat the shelling of Ukraine’s Zaporizhians nuclear power plant was carried out “apparently by Russian forces.” Which means that in the Times’ apparent view, Russia shelled the nuclear plant while also occupying it.

The “Russia-did-it” narrative was echoed by former CIA Director John Brennan, who declared that “Russia certainly is the most likely suspect,” in the Nord Stream attack. Brennan has maintained his confidence in accusing Russia of consequential acts despite previously signing on to a claim, alongside dozens of fellow retired intelligence officials, that the Hunter Biden laptop was also likely the product of a Russian disinformation operation.

One of the few attempts to leak any claim of substance was given to CNN. Citing the now-routine “Western intelligence officials”, a trio of CNN reporters wrote that “European security officials observed Russian Navy ships in vicinity of Nord Stream pipeline leaks,” thus casting “further suspicion on Russia,” which is seen by “European and US officials as the only actor in the region believed to have both the capability and motivation to deliberately damage the pipelines.”

As for the motivation, that can only be the case if one ignores the multi-year US-led campaign — endorsed by both major political parties and pursued with concerted economic warfare — to kill the pipelines.

Now Seymour Hersh, a journalism legend, has given us the details on an international act of sabotage that US media outlets reliably obscured.

Nord Stream Sabotage Was CIA, US Navy Covert Op: Seymour Hersh Bombshell Prompts White House Response
Famed journalist and Pulitzer prize winner Seymour Hersh, who for decades was a star reporter writing for The New York Times and New Yorker, on Wednesday published a new bombshell as his first Substack post, prompting a quick White House response

After conducting his own investigation into who sabotaged the Nord Stream pipelines via a series of underwater blasts on Sept. 26, Hersh has concluded the United States blew up the Russia-to-Germany natural gas pipeline as part of a covert operation under the guise of the BALTOPS 22 NATO exercise.

Hersh, relying on unnamed national security sources, describes months of discussions and back-and-forth involving the Biden White House, CIA, and Pentagon. The report says planning was in the works all the way back to December 2021, with a special task force formed under the aegis of US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

“The Navy proposed using a newly commissioned submarine to assault the pipeline directly. The Air Force discussed dropping bombs with delayed fuses that could be set off remotely. The CIA argued that whatever was done, it would have to be covert. Everyone involved understood the stakes,” the report, entitled How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline reads.

“The Biden Administration was doing everything possible to avoid leaks as the planning took place late in 2021 and into the first months of 2022,” it continues.

As momentum gained to proceed with a covert sabotage attack, “Over the next few weeks, members of the CIA’s working group began to craft a plan for a covert operation that would use deep-sea divers to trigger an explosion along the pipeline,” Hersh writes.

But there was significant push back within the intelligence community, but any reservations were overcome in the lead-up and aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. According to the investigative report:

Throughout “all of this scheming,” the source said, “some working guys in the CIA and the State Department were saying, ‘Don’t do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out.’”

Nevertheless, in early 2022, the CIA working group reported back to Sullivan’s interagency group: “We have a way to blow up the pipelines.”

What came next was stunning. On February 7, less than three weeks before the seemingly inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Biden met in his White House office with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who, after some wobbling, was now firmly on the American team. At the press briefing that followed, Biden defiantly said, “If Russia invades . . . there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”

Twenty days earlier, Undersecretary Nuland had delivered essentially the same message at a State Department briefing, with little press coverage. “I want to be very clear to you today,” she said in response to a question. “If Russia invades Ukraine, one way or another Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.”

If false, slander. If true, war. https://t.co/KqIPnI5QJo

— Mike Lee (@BasedMikeLee) February 8, 2023
As for Washington motives in such a risky covert sabotage mission, Hersh writes, “As long as Europe remained dependent on the pipelines for cheap natural gas, Washington was afraid that countries like Germany would be reluctant to supply Ukraine with the money and weapons it needed to defeat Russia.”

Biden in February of last year: “There will be no longer a Nord Stream 2, we will bring an end to it.”

Norway played a significant logistics and intelligence role in assisting an elite US Navy deep-diving team of divers based out of Panama City to carry out the operation:

Sometime in March, a few members of the team flew to Norway to meet with the Norwegian Secret Service and Navy. One of the key questions was where exactly in the Baltic Sea was the best place to plant the explosives. Nord Stream 1 and 2, each with two sets of pipelines, were separated much of the way by little more than a mile as they made their run to the port of Greifswald in the far northeast of Germany.

The Norwegian navy was quick to find the right spot, in the shallow waters of the Baltic sea a few miles off Denmark’s Bornholm Island. The pipelines ran more than a mile apart along a seafloor that was only 260 feet deep. That would be well within the range of the divers, who, operating from a Norwegian Alta class mine hunter, would dive with a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and helium streaming from their tanks, and plant shaped C4 charges on the four pipelines with concrete protective covers. It would be tedious, time consuming and dangerous work, but the waters off Bornholm had another advantage: there were no major tidal currents, which would have made the task of diving much more difficult.

Hersh’s sources underscore that the order came directly from President Biden’s office:

The C4 attached to the pipelines would be triggered by a sonar buoy dropped by a plane on short notice, but the procedure involved the most advanced signal processing technology. Once in place, the delayed timing devices attached to any of the four pipelines could be accidentally triggered by the complex mix of ocean background noises throughout the heavily trafficked Baltic Sea—from near and distant ships, underwater drilling, seismic events, waves and even sea creatures. To avoid this, the sonar buoy, once in place, would emit a sequence of unique low frequency tonal sounds—much like those emitted by a flute or a piano—that would be recognized by the timing device and, after a pre-set hours of delay, trigger the explosives.

…On September 26, 2022, a Norwegian Navy P8 surveillance plane made a seemingly routine flight and dropped a sonar buoy. The signal spread underwater, initially to Nord Stream 2 and then on to Nord Stream 1. A few hours later, the high-powered C4 explosives were triggered and three of the four pipelines were put out of commission. Within a few minutes, pools of methane gas that remained in the shuttered pipelines could be seen spreading on the water’s surface and the world learned that something irreversible had taken place.

Given that it was Hersh – who broke such well-known stories as the My Lai massacre and Abu Ghraib scandal and has long been known for impeccable insider sources – behind the new bombshell ‘whodunnit’ report, mainstream media couldn’t ignore it this time (in the way MSM ignored Jeffrey Sachs and others).

The mainstream news media is the main source of disinformation today pic.twitter.com/QreqONGS7h

— Michael Shellenberger (@ShellenbergerMD) February 8, 2023
The allegations were quickly picked up by The Times (UK), Reuters, and others – including Russian state media, prompting the White House to swiftly issue a rebuttal:

The White House said on Wednesday that a blog post by a U.S. investigative journalist alleging the United States was behind explosions of the Nord Stream pipelines “is utterly false and complete fiction.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry says the Hersh report reveals new facts that must be answered to, however, with spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stressing, “We have repeatedly stated Russia’s position on the involvement of the United States and NATO, noting that they did not hide it, bragging to the whole world about their intention to destroy the civilian infrastructure through which Europe received Russian energy resources.”

She added: “We have also regularly underscored the reluctance of Denmark, Germany and Sweden to conduct an open investigation and the opposition to Russia’s participation in it. And this is despite the fact that our country has suffered huge costs. Now, the White House should comment on all these facts.”

(RightWing.org) – The latest aircraft carrier to join the United States Navy (USN) is the USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77), which carries a crew of approximately 3,200 (roughly 2,500 of whom support the air wings on board). When a Carrier Strike Group (CSG) is at sea, it has to maintain self-sufficiency, which takes a lot of supplies, including food, water, and other day-to-day needs. When ships finally make port, they spend a lot of money restocking everything, which led to the “Fat Leonard scandal” and the sentencing of a former American Navy Captain on bribery charges.

Long-Running Drama

Retired Captain David Haas served aboard the USS Blue Ridge (the flagship of the USN 7th Fleet) as the Operations Officer between the dates of August 2011 and July 2013. He was one of many US naval officers and officials who helped steer contracts with nearly $35 million in overcharges to Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd., which resupplied vessels throughout Southeast Asia.

“Fat Leonard” Francis was the owner of the supply company, and when Haas and other commanders ordered their ships into ports he controlled for resupply, he would reward them with expensive cigars, Kobe beef, and prostitutes, according to an indictment against Haas.

Haas pled guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Commit Bribery,” and according to the indictment, he and a co-conspirator “provided Francis with classified US Navy ship schedules” and used their positions to push others to pay “inflated invoices… [and] suppress competition in contract awards.”

The plea agreement reached by Haas and his attorneys allowed him to plead guilty to the one count of “Conspiracy to Commit Bribery” while the Department of Justice (DOJ) dismissed other charges such as “Bribery [and] Conspiracy to Commit Honest Services Fraud.”

Haas was sentenced to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release. Besides his sentence, he was ordered to pay almost $91,000 in restitution and assessed a $30,000 fine.

Fat Leonard Gets Away

Francis pled guilty to charges in 2015, but as of January 4, 2023, he had not yet been sentenced, which could be attributed to the fact that he cut off his ankle bracelet while under house arrest (on Labor Day weekend 2022), fleeing the country, and is now in Venezuela seeking asylum to stave off American authorities.

Even after pleading guilty, Francis was living in a luxurious house being guarded by private security rather than police, which came to the attention of Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA). He sent a letter dated November 1 to Roslynn Mauskopf, Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, seeking some answers.

Grassley asked why there was a delay in notifying authorities that his ankle bracelet had been removed and that his neighbors had reported seeing “U-Haul moving trucks” at Francis’s house in the days before he left. In her response, Mauskopf spent many words essentially saying, thanks for asking, but we aren’t telling.

Links to Zelensky…

‘Bond villain’ oligarch who ‘kept SHARKS in his office’ with links to Zelensky has his home raided

A ‘James Bond villain’ oligarch who is said to keep sharks in his office to intimidate his enemies has had his mansion raided in Ukraine as part of a sweeping anti-corruption clampdown.

Ihor Kolomoisky, a warlord who helped Volodymyr Zelensky‘s rise to power, was targeted by the SBU, Ukraine‘s security service yesterday.

The 59-year-old tycoon was pictured standing in his hunting lodge residence near Dnipro wearing tracksuits and slippers as he was confronted by the agents.

Investigators are probing claims Kolomoisky embezzled around £1billion from two oil companies where he was previously the majority shareholder, Ukrainian media says.

The Ukrainian government seized stakes in the energy companies, oil producer Ukrnafta and refiner Ukrtatnafta, as part of moves to consolidate the war effort.

The oil baron, who was named in the Panama Papers, is accused of dodging customs duties to rack up his huge fortune, which included owning the TV channel that launched Zelensky’s comedy career. 

He backed the then-actor during his 2019 presidential bid with his media empire, although Zelensky has distanced himself from the billionaire businessman.

The mogul, who has been sanctioned by the US, also ‘laundered $5.5billion through a tangle of shell companies, purchasing factories and commercial properties across the U.S. heartland,’ the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists claims.

He is accused of heading up one of the biggest ever Ponzi schemes in the US and is one of the biggest real estate landlords in the US midwest.

Kolomoisky was born into a Jewish family in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine, when it was part of the Soviet Union.

After the collapse of the USSR, he started making a fortune importing foreign goods, and trading local metals on the international market.

He allegedly seized former state-held assets and paid off judges and magistrates as Russia struggled to control its burgeoning kleptocracy.

The ruthless leader soon started to cultivate a fearsome persona.

According to Forbes, he once deployed ‘hundreds of hired rowdies armed with baseball bats, iron bars, gas and rubber bullet pistols and chainsaws’ to forcibly take over a steel plant. 

He once lined the lobby of an oil company he wanted to push out with a row of coffins, and filled his shark tank with bloodied chum when he wanted to intimidate opponents. 

He was one of the most powerful figures in Ukraine by the 2010s and oversaw one of the country’s biggest banks PrivatBank.

Following the 2014 EuroMaidan Revolution when Russia first started trying to seize Ukraine, Kolomoisky started to bankroll the neo-Nazi Azov regiment and refashioned himself as a fierce defender of the motherland.

A US diplomat said, according to the Spectator: ‘I think Kolomoisky is super-dangerous. He was one of the first oligarchs who began to act like a warlord.’

But doubts crept in about the reality of his finances and government officials found billions missing from his empire.

The government was forced to give a mammoth £4.5billion bailout to PrivatBank to stop it collapsing, and soon found money hidden in faraway places such as Cleveland, Ohio. 

Investigators say he oversaw a laundering scheme that stole billions from unknowing Ukrainian depositors.

Loans that were publicly stated by PrivatBank were actually being redirected to to overseas entities using shell companies and offshore accounts.  

Kolomoisky vowed that he would turn around the fortunes of the steel heartlands of the US Midwest, but predictably it never happened, instead using the unsuspecting regions as the ideal place to hide his fortune. 

Despite his history of corruption, he remained largely untouched by the government until recently, because of his power and his influence over the militia.

But now, authorities have clamped down on him as part of Zelensky’s widening probe into corruption.

The search came ahead of a key summit with the EU and appeared to be part of a push by Kyiv to reassure key military and financial donors in European capitals and Washington that Ukraine is tackling systemic graft.

‘We are carrying out the task set by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and simultaneously delivering a global blow to the internal enemy,’ announced Vasyl Maliuk, the head of Ukraine’s security service, the SBU.

‘Every criminal who has the audacity to harm Ukraine, especially in the conditions of war, must clearly understand that we will put handcuffs on him.’

The raids also targeted former interior minister Arsen Avakov, said the head of Zelensky’s party David Arakhamia.

Law enforcement also raided tax offices in the capital and senior customs officials were fired, Arakhamia said.

In the biggest political shakeup since the launch of Moscow’s assault on Ukraine, authorities last week fired around a dozen senior figures, including defence officials and a top aide to the president’s office.

The raids on Wednesday came two days before Zelensky was expected to host a summit with the European Union, which has urged reforms to facilitate deeper integration.

The SBU also said it had uncovered a scheme by the head of the Kyiv tax office over ‘multimillion-dollar’ fraud schemes, accusing the official of abusing a position of authority.

In an address to the nation on Tuesday, Zelensky vowed officials would take further measures to sweep away graft, saying ‘all the necessary steps have already been taken.’

‘People in the government who do not meet the basic requirements of the state and society should not occupy their seats,’ he said.

The State Bureau of Investigation and the Prosecutor General’s Office said on Wednesday that they had informed a number of senior officials they were being investigated for crimes including misappropriation of state funds and misuse of state property.

Last week the defence ministry announced the resignation of deputy minister Vyacheslav Shapovalov, who was involved in logistical support for the army.

That resignation came after the ministry was accused of signing food contracts at prices two to three times higher that market rates for basics.

Despite being vocal about fighting corruption, Zelensky himself has been embroiled in corruption scandals in the past.

He is now working to drum up political backing for Ukraine at a critical time in the conflict, with Russian forces claiming to have captured fresh ground in the eastern Donetsk region.

On Kolomoisky…

Zelensky’s Great Purge continues, launching police raid against oligarch who fell out of favor with Biden Admin
The Ukrainian president’s longtime political and financial patron is no longer in the good graces of the people in charge.

Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky just sicced his secret police (Ukraine’s SBU) on Igor Kolomoisky, a billionaire oligarch who was once wholly responsible for financing the Ukrainian president’s rise to power. The significance of the story — regarding Zelensky turning on his longtime patron and Kolomoisky’s other significant ties — was entirely buried by foreign and state media, with most merely referring to the situation as another in a series of “anti-corruption” actions.

Sbu and State Investigation Bureau are searching oligarch Kolomoisky’s mansion in the Ukrnafta and Ukrtatnafta embezzlement case. What an interior.

A quick rundown on why Mr. Kolomoisky is significant:

He owned Burisma when it employed Hunter Biden.

He financed Zelensky’s entire television, business, and political career, including his rise to the presidency.

He once funded Ukrainian militias, but later argued that Kiev should engage in a detente with Russia. This part is critical, as Kolomoisky’s good standing with the West shifted dramatically after this decision.

Since then, he became the subject of an FBI probe and U.S. sanctions.

He has since had his assets seized and nationalized by the Ukrainian government, and he has been stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship, despite being born in Ukraine and living his entire life in Ukraine.

Ukraine’s secret police is seizing not only Kolomoisky’s assets, but the property of several high-profile figures as part of Zelensky’s highly-publicized anti-corruption tour, through which the Ukrainian president has received endless praise in the western media. All of these raids and seizures are happening entirely outside of the bounds of any semblance of the rule of law. They are simply being ordered by Zelensky’s office, and justified under martial law rules.

The truth is that these are anything but anti-corruption raids.

Zelensky is running a blitzkrieg operation that is dissolving and disbanding all checks on the president’s authority, concentrating power into the hands of an increasingly authoritarian regime in Kiev, which has now embraced ethnic cleansing and punishes thought crimes.

A couple weeks ago, Zelensky’s three highest ranking Interior Ministry officials were killed in a “helicopter crash” over Kiev, which is hundreds of miles removed from the current battlefield.

Countless regional governors and deputy ministers have been stripped of authority, again, without any due process. Zelensky’s deputy minister of defense, the deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office, and the deputy prosecutor general are but many of the high-ranking individuals who were recently removed due to “corruption” allegations.

This is not so much an anti-corruption maneuver as it is a Stalinesque Great Purge, the difference being that the USSR-born Zelensky seems not to be the top dog in his own country.

The Kolomoisky raid highlights a Ukraine whose sovereignty has been sold to foreign actors, with the new regime in charge having tasked an actor, Volodomyr Zelensky, with the role of managing the day to day operations in Kiev. In the meantime, Ukraine continues devolving into a failed state, as its leadership remains committed to the abuse of realpolitik and maintaining its maximalist war-footing against a much more powerful neighbor. It all comes to the delight of the western defense industry, which continues to use Ukraine as a munitions laundering opportunity.
