Russia To Ban Fertilizer Exports To 'Not Friendly' Countries; China Warns US Against Retaliation


Russia's war on Ukraine is continuing to boost food prices. While the US and European countries are engaged in economic warfare against Moscow, it appears Russia's turn to strike back has emerged.

On Thursday, Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said Russia decided to suspend fertilizer exports. This comes when global food prices are at record highs, and European fertilizer makers are struggling to produce nutrients ahead of the spring growing season, increasing global food inflation risks.

President Vladimir Putin said the fertilizer export ban was a move to ensure stable domestic food prices. This is another sign of growing protectionism worldwide as countries grapple with soaring food prices. Putin said fertilizer markets are deteriorating, making food a lot more expensive.

Notably, Putin added that Russia has agreements with "friendly countries" on fertilizers.

Making matters worse, Interfax, an independent Russian news agency, reported earlier that Moscow is considering retaliatory economic measures to ban exports of certain agricultural products to countries outside the Eurasian Economic Union.

Interfax said Moscow could temporarily ban grain exports to the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and ban sugar exports beyond the EEU. This may result in declining food supplies for those countries and soaring food costs.

Add this to the fertilizer ban and Europe and maybe the West is headed for a major food crisis.


Possible Russian retaliatory measures follow a series of Western sanctions on Russia, which have collapsed the ruble, locked the central bank out of a large chunk of its foreign-currency savings, and crushed its ability to trade with the outside world by removing certain Russian banks from SWIFT.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been quoted well before the invasion of Ukraine of the need to strengthen an emerging multipolar world order.

"It is important to maintain and boost mutually respectful, constructive and effective cooperation globally, as well as to strengthen the emerging multipolar world order that consists of independent centers of economic growth and political influence, which certainly includes BRICS," Putin emphasized.

It's early to declare if Western sanctions will paralyze Russia, but what appears to be happening is that the global economy is becoming more fractured than ever as a great power struggle between the West and East flourishes.

Earlier this week, Russian banks that were cut off from SWIFT turned to China's state-owned UnionPay system. Also, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday its oil and gas firms have other buyers as many Western nations halt or wind down purchases for energy products.

The global economy is splintering, and Russia could be inclined to unleash retaliatory economic measures outside the Eurasian Economic Union. This area in Eastern Europe, Western Asia, and Central Asia, is also home to some of China's Belt and Road Initiative, also known as One Belt One Road... and likely includes numerous so-called "friendly countries" including China.

Meanwhile, China FM Spokesperson, Zhao Lijian was quoted earlier today as saying Beijing will retaliate with a "serious response" if the US hits sanctions on China over Ukraine.

Things are getting a little bit out of control:

VAERS myocarditis already 47% of 2021 in just first 2 months of 2022


One of the most criminal aspects of the COVID regime was the decision to pressure low-risk teens into getting a shot that was known to cause cardiac inflammation. Myocarditis used to be a rare disorder discussed mainly in academic literature, but now it is everywhere. What have we done to a generation of young hearts, and what is being done to detect, diagnose, and treat the problem? Unless we can find an angle that ties in to Ukraine, our politicians, media, and medical establishment don’t care.

We are over a year into the known safety signals of this vaccine for myocarditis, and yet the shots still have not been pulled, even for younger males. In fact, it’s still a requirement in many colleges. Yet reports of myocarditis and pericarditis are so prevalent now that just in the first eight weeks of 2022, we’re already at 47% of the total VAERS submissions for 2021. There were 24,177 reports of pericarditis/myocarditis submitted to VAERS in 2021. In 2022, just through Feb. 25, there were 11,289 reports, which is nearly half of last year’s total. Here is the graphic presentation from Open VAERS:


The reporting to VAERS is very disturbing because the trend line of vaccination, especially for the younger people more prone to this heart inflammation, has halted to a trickle in recent weeks. So why are there so many more reports this year? There are likely two possible explanations. Either more people and doctors know about VAERS and know to look for myocarditis, or there is a time bomb with many more people now realizing they have heart problems months later. Either way, this means that the initial estimates of case prevalence were just the tip of the iceberg, and we are likely to see young hearts damaged for years to...

And now they say it's nobody's fault...

 

Lord I must be dreamin'
What else could this be
Everybody's screamin'
Running' for the sea

Holy lands are sinkin'
Birds take to the sky
The prophets are all stinking drunk
I know the reason why

Eyes are full of desire
Mind is so ill at ease
Everything is on fire
Shit piled up to the knees
Out of rhyme or reason
Everyone's to blame
Children of the season
Don't be lame

Sorry, you're so sorry
Don't be sorry
Man has known
And now he's blown it
Upside down and hell's the only sound
We did an awful job
And now they say it's nobody's fault

BEASTMODE: DeSantis Dunks on Disney


Gov. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.) on Thursday slammed Disney and other "woke corporations" that oppose Florida's Parental Rights in Education bill even as they rake in money from the Chinese Communist Party.

"In Florida, our policy's going to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations," DeSantis said in a video first obtained by Fox News. "The chance that I am going to back down from my commitment to students and back down from my commitment to parents' rights simply because of fraudulent media narratives or pressure from woke corporations—the chances of that are zero."

Disney CEO Bob Chapek on Wednesday reached out to DeSantis to express "disappointment and concern" over the Florida bill, which prohibits curricula on gender ideology or sexual orientation from kindergarten through third grade.

"You have companies, like at Disney, that are going to say and criticize parents' rights, they're going to criticize the fact that we don't want transgenderism in kindergarten, in first-grade classrooms," DeSantis said Thursday. "If that's the hill they're going to die on, then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship from the Communist Party of China?"...

Look How Washington is Spending Your Money, Your Children's Money, And Your Grandchildren's Money:


While the media is focused the conflict in Ukraine, Congress has been occupied debating another massive $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill.

This is perhaps the last of attempts by the Democrats to push their agenda through before the GOP is expected to take over early next year.

The bill they have got in front of them is divided into two sections:
$730 billion dedicated to total non-defense spending, and was passed with 260 votes for and 171 against.
$782 billion dedicated to defense funding, and was passed with 361 votes for and 69 votes against.

Within these bills, the GOP was able to retain $2 billion of previously-allocated border wall construction funds.

The bill also dedicates an additional $370 million to “enhanced border security.”

Before you leap with joy to celebrate, the borders being fortified are those of Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, Nepal and Pakistan.

There all kinds of vaguely worded programs, some which may be good but also may be useless pork, or even worse, wokester pork.

Under the ‘Economic Support Fund’ section dedicates over $40,000,000 for ‘democracy programs for Venezuela.’

The bill provides around $10 million for improving television and radio broadcasting capabilities in countries such as Cuba.


The bill includes a provision that expands diversity, equality, and inclusion at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The bill also dedicates $6 million to Russians "engaging in free market development, humanitarian activities, and civic engagement" but will "not be used for Russian government officials.”

The bill also dedicates $66 million for the “Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health.

The bill dedicates over $100 billion on Green New Deal initiatives, and advance “racial justice” through Department of Agriculture programs.

The bill dedicates $78.3 million for the Department of Agriculture to study the impacts of climate change and research on clean energy technologies and greenhouse gas reductions.

NASA receives $7.6 billion for scientific research on topics such as changing climate.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gets $100 million for environmental justice activities.

$26 billion has been dedicated for food stamp funding.

$75 million has been allotted to low-emission vehicles.

$26 billion have been dedicated for food stamp funding.

The legislation contains $575 million to fund programs that combat abuse and sexual assault against women.

The spending bill provides a 2.7% salary hike for all active-duty troops.

The bill originally had $15 billion in coronavirus aid; however, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi moved to remove the item following both Democrat and GOP opposition to the measure.

The package delivers $14 billion in emergency funding for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

$3.5 billion for sending new military equipment and $3 billion for deploying U.S. troops to Ukraine.

This goes against Biden’s promise to not put boots on the ground in Ukraine.

The bill could have been released in an easy to understand Excel Sheet with items and corresponding amount.

But no, the bill is over 2,700 pages and was released at midnight on Tuesday by the Democrats, just 12 hours before the vote.

If a regular citizen attempts to read the contents of this bill deep slumber or boredom certainly will occur.

Washington purposefully makes it wordy, complex, and tiresome. The goal is to prevent you for clearly understanding where your money is...

Read the Classroom ‘Antiracism’ Survey That Has Maryland Parents ‘Livid’


A Maryland school district paid an "antiracist" consulting firm nearly $1 million to ask parents if their six-year-old children were being taught enough about racism.

The survey, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, gives Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) parents a chance to rate the district's "antiracism" curricula. The survey asks parents if they believe their children are being "taught about the negative effects of racism in their classes" and whether school libraries "represent people of diverse races, skin colors, ethnicities, and cultures."


The survey is the latest result of a years' long partnership between MCPS and the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium (MAEC), a prominent "antiracist" consulting group. Since 2020, MCPS has diverted nearly $1 million of taxpayer funds to the firm to boost its "antiracist" credentials, according to documents obtained by Parents Defending Education.

Some Montgomery County parents think the district has the wrong priorities.

"They're spending so much funding on this, and test scores are down," said former Montgomery County school administrator Dee Reuben. "Parents are livid. I hear this every day—parents are afraid to speak out because they're afraid of the repercussions that will happen to their kids. Academics is going down the tube, and I think that is a shame considering we were one of the top school systems around—it breaks my heart."

Montgomery County literacy readiness in 2021 plummeted between 30 and 40 percent depending on grade level. Only 54 percent of MCPS high school students test at or above the proficient level.

Reuben leads United Against Racism in Education, a group made up of Montgomery County parents, teachers, and community leaders who are concerned with the district's misuse of taxpayer funds to promote critical race theory. United Against Racism in Education is one of several groups across the country that want schools to spend less time pushing "equity" and more time on education.

MCPS says on its website that it does not teach critical race theory in the classroom. But Byron Johns, the chairman of the NAACP Maryland chapter's Education Committee, hosted an online webinar in November titled "Eliminating Institutional Bias: How New MCPS Data and Critical Race Theory Could Help." MCPS superintendent Monifa McKnight was scheduled to appear at the event but backed out at the last minute. Reuben, who attended the meeting, says it proves the district's hypocrisy.

"One minute they're saying they're not teaching critical race theory in schools, and the next minute they're doing a Zoom presentation on the benefits of eliminating bias through critical race theory," she said. "You can't talk out of both sides of your mouth."

Following national protests of police treatment of black Americans, McKnight in November 2020 announced that the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium would audit the district's curricula and help it adopt more "antiracist" features. As part of the audit, the district last week released a comprehensive, district-wide survey that asks, "To what extent does MCPS support racial equity and disrupt systemic racism through its policies, procedures, structures, and practices?" The survey was sent via email to every parent in the district.

The survey also asks parents if they "believe my child should be taught to recognize, understand, and interrupt racism" and if the "content of my child's coursework reflects the experiences and contributions of people from my child's racial, ethnic, and/or cultural background." In an email to parents distributing the survey, MCPS provided supplemental documents that tout the district's "antiracism" initiative as an effort to "ensure racial justice by identifying, interrupting, and dismantling racist practices, policies, and attitudes that disproportionately harm communities of color."

Max Eden, a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told the Free Beacon that the MCPS survey is "a transparent pretext for the school district to further implement critical race theory ideology as...

Klaus Schwab’s Tower of Babel


The European Union and Davos-style globalism is saturating the globe on all continents. It pretends to make the world a better place. It does no such thing.

The Tower of Babel was real. The structure, reaching far into the skies, was built in the land of Shinar, in ancient Babylon. It was constructed some years after the Deluge, or what is commonly called Noah’s flood.

Globalists in the European project—especially at Davos, in Switzerland, and in the U.S. Democratic Party—have been building their own modern-day tower for many decades. Their punishment of Europe has been Biblical in scale, and now they want to expand it worldwide. Joe Biden and his advisors are fully on board with the project of bringing it full-scale to America.

Today that Tower of Babel is the World Economic Forum, the European Union, and other globalist organizations. Tomorrow, it will expand and include one-world government, currency, and media.

The original tower broke God’s covenant and his commandments—unifying people in sin. Similarly, Davos’ Babel is rapidly becoming the gate through which Hell itself spills onto the continent and spreads its tentacles to places like Canada, Australia, and even the United States.

This warning has been ignored by the Eurocrats in Brussels and Strasbourg—they speak of building a European empire, with sons and daughters drafted into a European Army going off to die for the socialist Chancellor of Germany. Klaus Schwab, in Kungian fashion, preaches a “global ethic” that does away with diverse faith traditions handed down over the centuries. In America, Biden sacrifices our hard-won sovereignty in everything he touches—from healthcare to homeland security to green new deals.

In truth, such actions represent the sinful pride of mankind and an act of ultimate hubris—wanting to reach the heavens—where persons in the elite cadre could become like gods themselves.

Historically, Babel has been explained as an attempt to comprehend the existence of so many diverse languages—an allegorical myth.

To prevent the wrath of God, Davosians, like Americans, must keep faith in the system the Lord gave them. The sacred canopy and laws of an ordered universe were not meant to be sacrificed for some socialist, earthly one-world political goal.

Towering over the nations of Europe, Brussels promotes nothing like a healthy culture. The elites of Davos favor instead a universalist anti-culture, a sinful attempt to standardize every nation into sameness and socialism. They seek to reset the present system with a trans-human ideology of an expert illuminati, headed by a Dr. Evil-like character, one Klaus Schwab.

And who is this Schwab character?

He is the founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum. Schwab was born in Ravensberg, Germany in 1938 and before migrating to become Swiss neutrals, his family was involved with the Nazis and young Schwab was a member of the Nazi Youth. Schwab’s economic forum on management started in 1971 and was transformed into an international foundation with global ambitions over the decades. There is no transparency so there is no record of its doings, budget, or tentacles. With Schwab as its dictatorial, maniacal leader, the organization has become the hub of all globalism, elite domination, and what is termed, the “Great Reset.”

The Flemish master Pieter Brueghel’s influential portrayal of the scene at Babel was based on the Colosseum in Rome, while later conical depictions of the tower (as depicted in Doré’s illustration) resemble much later Muslim towers observed by 19th-century explorers, notably the Minaret of Samarra.

The Law of Europe—whimsical, unenforceable, and ill-advised—is no substitute for Holy Writ. Nor are the tyrannical mandates in Canada and the feeble attempts by the Biden Administration to reign in the citizens of America. Davos’ edicts of wokeism, green nonsense, and one-world globalism have no basis in reality and cannot be allowed to come to fruition. (The composer Anton Rubinstein wrote a powerful opera based on the very same story, called “Der Thurm zu Babel.”)

It was on account of this sin, the same as that in the original Garden of Eden, that God divided humans and made them speak foreign tongues, whereby they could not understand each other, they could no longer communicate and conspire to set themselves up over Him.

Conservative political philosopher Michael Oakeshott surveyed at great length historic variations of the Tower of Babel story in different cultures and produced a modern retelling of his own in his important 1983 book, On History.

In his retelling, Oakeshott expressed disdain for human willingness to sacrifice individuality, culture, and quality of life for what he called, “grand collective projects.”

He attributed this behavior to a fascination with novelty, persistent dissatisfaction, greed, and lack of self-reflection and...
