There's no doubt global warming is to blame. Or at least the focus on global warming.
The useful idiots for Russia, China, North Korea and Islamic States have been curtailing economic growth and distracting from strategic defence by claiming human CO2 emissions for alleged catastrophic global warming.
The useful idiots in high levels of government, including many of the leaders in the West, have given Russia the opportunity to improve their economic position relative to the West.
While Russia grew their economy and defence ability on the back of growing their fossil fuel production, the West have focussed on reducing CO2 emissions, which hamstrings economic growth, and places defence expenditure at the bottom of the list.
Amen James. It's clear that Putin is flush with cash from oil and gas, a result of Europe eschewing those necessary commodities. And Europe won't defend Ukraine now because they are afraid Russia will cut off natural gas in mid-winter. What Russia and China see is we have voluntarily tied one hand behind our backs. Our Western liberals see it as virtue, they see it as weakness. Weakness begets attack, always has.

Report: Biden admin gave China intelligence on Russia in bid for help â€” then China handed it off to Russia
Unnamed U.S. officials told the Times that over the past three months, senior administration officials arranged urgent meetings with Beijing during which they shared intelligence showing Russia's troop build-up on the Ukraine border in hopes that China would step in and tell Russia not to invade.
Each time, the officials said the Chinese rebuffed the Americans, playing coy about Russia's intentions â€” and at least one time, the Chinese turned around to hand over the intelligence to Moscow.
"After one diplomatic exchange in December, U.S. officials got intelligence showing Beijing had shared the information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the United States was trying to sow discord â€” and that China would not try to impede Russian plans and actions," the Times reported.Where is this story on cable news?
Well isn't this convenient.

Well said. Civilization was not something anyone wanted. It was a necessity, born of the need for security and material wants. For a million years humanity lived as hunter-gatherers in small tribes. They starved in winter. They were cold then, and hot in summer. They were always fearful of being raided. They had to make everything themselves. It was not an entertaining way to live. With the coming of agriculture we found a way to thrive, but the land can be a terrible tyrant. Cities were born, and then empires. Finding the balance between a central power and human autonomy was very difficult, and usually ended in statism or barbarism. Western Civilization found that balance, albeit a shaky one. Concerns with rights and liberties couple with loyalty to one's people, one's country and kin. But it is a messy process, something that a lot of people do not like. There are people who want everything sorted, organized, pidgeon-holed. Sadly, the increasing complexity of our civilization favors those who want that and they are imposing their vision on the rest of us.

Global Warming? Not in Canada this year:
Canada Sets a Slew of Record Low Temperatures
If I catch a cold or flu I won't need a test to tell me I'm not well and should stay home. If this pandemic has taught me anything it is that personal decisions and personal hygiene has the greatest impact on the spread of disease.
Even with Omicron being rife most people who think they need to be tested and have a RAT produce a negative result. But the continued unnecessary scare campaign about Covid-19 has people getting tested at the slightest sniffle.
We don't know exactly how many RATs are being done, because only positive tests are reported. But it's estimated that only about 1 in 100,000 RATs test positive.
Lots of occupations are required to do RATs daily, some weekly. In one article the ABC claimed various pharmacy groups, warehouses and retailers, were selling 4.75 million RATs a week to private companies and individuals. Federal and state governments have already supplied 210 million RATs to public hospitals, testing clinics and the federal and state public service authorities and schools in January and February.
Assuming Government authorities are providing supplies to cover peak needs say 3 months in advance, and wholesalers are sticking 2 month's supply in advance, then a very conservative guestimate is that between 5 and 10 million RATs are being done in Australia each week.
In most states it is compulsory to report all positive RAT results. If you have symptoms, most states provide RAT kits for up to 5 tests spaced out to check when you are clear.
In some circumstances you are required to have a PCR test. States are averaging about 560,000 PCR tests per week with just 4.3% returning a positive result currently.
From the 5.5m - 10.5m Covid-19 tests currently carried out weekly, (multiple times on many people), only about 140,000 tests are positive. Which is 1.3% - 2.5%.
Who knows how many asymptomatic people aren't tested. Or people who feel a little off, who don't bother getting tested but would be Covid-19 positive?
I know quite a few people who only knew they had Covid-19 from a routine close contact or obligatory occupational Covid-19 test.
Some have gone on to develop typical cold and flu symptoms, some have had no systems, and some complain of lethargy or fatigue. The latter group may just be spending too much time watching TV as they are forced to isolate.
We've now had 3.17 million cinfirmed cases of covid-19 in Australia. That's about 12.4% of the population. Or 12.4 per 100 people, have had confirmed Covid-19.
We have had just over 5,000 deaths 'with' Covid-19, with a median age of over 83yrs and an average of 2.7 serious co-morbidities.
Most of those cases have occurred in vaccinated people. Clearly the vaccine isn't great at stopping infection.
A very high percentage of the population who are vaccinated, and many
unvaccinated people who wind up in hospital or die, have multiple
It's possible vaccines might help people with serious co-morbidities from becoming hospitalised and dying. But it's very difficult to make the claim that vaccines stop healthy people from becoming hospitalised and dying from Covid-19, because vaccinated or not, healthy people with no comorbidities are not winding up in hospital and dying. That except for rare outliers who may have had an undiagnosed co-morbidity.
The only way the health authorities or media have been able to claim healthy young people can get seriously sick from Covid-19, is if they overlook obesity as a co-morbidity.
We don't have dead bodies stacked in the streets. Currently there are just over 200,000 active cases in Australia. Of those just 2,005 (1%) are hospitalised, with just 150 (0.07%) in ICU.
Australia's health system isn't collapsing, at least any more than it was before Covid-19, given the extra billions of dollars spent in the sector.
Australia we have had a 99.84% survival rate, with the 0.16% death rate
primarily made up of elderly people with serious co-morbidities.
There's absolutely no question that the State Governments over-reacted with harsh Covid restrictions and mandates and/or maintaining them for much longer than justified.
Untold damage has been done to our economy, massive debts incurred, and people's lives and livelihoods destroyed.
The single most important step taken in slowing the spread of the disease and allowing our health system to cope with Covid-19, was taken by the Federal Government when our international borders were closed.
We had leakage of the borders through States mismanaging hotel quarantine.
Vaccines, which were also provided by the federal government, not state government, has probably provided some protection to the part of the population who were always succeptible to covid-19, that is the elderly and medically vulnerable.
It was never necessary to lock down healthy people. All we ever had to do was help the elderly and medically vulnerable to isolate or wear effective PPE. Not the almost totally useless surgical or cloth masks which are still required in many venues.
Thanks to health bureaucrats and State Premiers drunk with power we will be entering the endemic phase of Covid-19 with hundreds of billions in debt, a weaker economy, a more divided society, and lives and livelihoods severely damaged or ruined.
This was done under the guise of 'keeping us safe'. That propaganda message is still being used by some State Premiers. Yet the data shows most people have little to fear from Covid-19. Despite this the scare campaign is sadly still believed by a large part of the public because they've only ever heard the one-sided message from the government and media in lockstep.
Even so, surely even a cocky state premier like Mark McGowan in Western Australia, who claims other states have managed Covid-19 poorly, wouldn't claim the government response to Covid-19 at a state and federal level was perfect?
Surely nearly every section of the community would like to see some things handled differently when another pandemic hits?
This is why we must demand a Royal Commission be held by the federal government into all aspects of the pandemic response.
This is how wars spread.

Russia Strikes Target U.S. Run Biolabs in Ukraine
Well, we KNOW the U.S. has been playing around with dangerous viruses; it's established Covid came from a Chinese bio lab funded in part by the U.S. to circumvent the ban on "Gain of Function" research. It is conceivable we've been doing this research in the Ukraine, which is a corrupt country crazy enough to do it.
Apparently the U.S. has several labs under its Orwellian named Biological Threat Reduction Program.
If I were Putin I would want to destroy these labs too.
And it got me to wondering if all of the missiles striking Ukraine are in fact Russian. I wonder if we haven't lobbied a few things at some of these labs to burn them out before the Red Army gets there.

This is absolutely correct. Suspend Russia from SWIFT and their economy will shrink faster than a bottle of fixodent from Biden's medicine cabinet.
So why hasn't the Brandon Administration taken this course of action?
Why have they not taken steps to reduce the price of oil and gas? That is the primary funding for the Russians. It's what made Putin end the invasion of Georgia.
Why isn't he stopping Russia vessels in the Bosporus or the Baltic sea?
The longer this goes on in Ukraine the harder it will be for Putin to pull it off.
UN condemns arrest of more than 1,800 Russian anti-war protesters
So where was the U.N. when people protesting the theft of the American Presidency were arreested and held without trial? Where was the U.N. when Trudeau arrested a bunch of people peacefully protesting in Canada? Seems it is just a matter of whose ox is being gored.
Where was the U.N. when my friend and our contributor James Doogue was being arrested for protesting Covid lockdowns in Australia?
