New Work Order
Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum yesterday, about which we will hear more in coming days.
Unipolar Order Has Ended, West Headed For "Change Of Elites" As Russia Emerges Stronger
..He declared the end of the unipolar world as we know it, saying, "Over the past decades, new powerful centers have been formed on the planet […] each of them develops their own political system and public institutions, implements their own models of economic growth, and, of course, has the right to protect themselves, to ensure national sovereignty. We are talking about real processes, about truly revolutionary, tectonic changes in geopolitics, global economy, the technological sphere, in the entire system of international relations"...

While putting forward Moldova, absent was any mention of Georgia (which is not lining up hard against Russia, due to prior experiences) , which is not being considered, angering Georgian leaders who have lashed out at Brussels...
..Vladimir Putin in statements issued the same day as von der Leyen's EU candidacy preliminary approval announcement stressed the growing 'cost' to Europe over its intransigent pro-Ukraine position and anti-Russia sanctions. He estimated that the European Union will incur "losses of at least $400 billion" due to its multiple waves of sanctions imposed on Moscow.
Transcript of Putin's St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Plenary Session Address:
RT take on Putin's keynote address: (The point is made that Europe has been colonized. A path out of that is implied.)
New centers of power have emerged, the unipolar world order isn’t coming back, and the “colonial” way of thinking has failed, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday
“Truly revolutionary, tectonic changes in geopolitics, the global economy, in the technological sphere, in the entire system of international relations,” are “fundamental, pivotal and inexorable,” Putin said. “And It is a mistake to suggest that one can wait out the times of turbulent change and that things will return to normal; that everything will be as it was. It will not.” ...
..“The European Union has completely lost its political sovereignty, and its bureaucratic elites are dancing to someone else’s tune, accepting whatever they are told from above, causing harm to their own population and their own economy,” ...
..“Such a detachment from reality, from the demands of society, will inevitably lead to a surge of populism and the growth of radical movements, to serious social and economic changes, to degradation and, in the near future, to a change of elites.”.. If there is famine in the world’s poorest countries, “this will be entirely on the conscience of the US administration and the European bureaucracy." Troubles with food supply have arisen over the past several years – not months – due to the “short-sighted actions of those who are accustomed to solving their problems at someone else's expense,” distorting the trade flows by printing money in a sort of “predatory colonial policy,” Putin said.
Russia is ready to send food to Africa and the Middle East, where the threat of famine is most acute, but faces “logistical, financial, transport” obstacles imposed by the West...
..“All the objectives of the special military operation will be unconditionally achieved,” Putin said...
(Perhaps looking at Germany, France and Italy) “Truly sovereign states are always committed to equal partnerships,” while “those who are weak and dependent, as a rule, are busy looking for enemies, planting xenophobia, or finally losing their originality, independence, blindly following the overlord.”
Deputy Head of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev took to Telegram on Wednesday and conveyed his doubts about Ukraine still being around in two years. He referred to a post saying that Ukraine "seeks to get LNG from its overseas sponsors under lend-lease and pay for it in two years," because otherwise "it will just freeze" next winter. "The only question is, who says that Ukraine will still exist in two years?"
Planned disruptive crisis, or just extreme incompetence? Sri Lankan crisis presents a chance for the "new-new-world-order" to perform an impressive rescue. Sri Lanka’s woes trace to depleted foreign currency reserves, ill-timed tax cuts, loss of tourism dollars and disruptions from the Covid-19 pandemic. In the agriculture sector, policy missteps have also played a role. In April 2021, the government, led by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, banned synthetic fertilizer imports to push the country toward organic farming.
But without adequate preparation, the plan backfired. Sri Lanka’s entire agricultural chain — around a third of the labor force and 8% of gross domestic product — faced disruptions. Export earnings from tea, a key revenue source, dried up...
..President Rajapaksa said the synthetic fertilizer ban was intended to increase the income of farmers by providing them with sustainable and cheaper alternatives. In a recent interview with Bloomberg News, he acknowledged problems with execution.
“Our organic fertilizer manufacturers didn’t have the capacity, but I was not informed,” he said. “I didn’t get the support from people who were responsible.”
Without a bailout from the International Monetary Fund, many worry that Sri Lanka could now go the way of Venezuela, with an essentially worthless currency causing hardship for years to come...
..The situation has turned desperate for poorer Sri Lankans. Amaraweera, the agriculture minister, has urged people to grow crops at home, saying it’s the only solution to the crisis. For the next three months, the government has given state employees Fridays off from work to tend to their gardens...
..Jayavardhana Pridarshani, a mother of four who lives in Hambantota, a stronghold of the ruling Rajapaksa dynasty, said her family used to eat fish or eggs daily. These days, they can only afford to have those items once a month. She said schools have stopped serving meals to students and fishermen rarely go out to sea because of fuel shortages, even though there’s an abundance of fish.
“Children here, including mine, are suffering from fatigue and weakness,” she said, adding that a doctor had warned that those were symptoms of protein deficiency. https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/spiraling-food-crisis-hits-sri-lanka-as-farmers-abandon-fields-1.1780077

Moon of Alabama thinks the US/NATO needs to escalate the war narrative in a desperate bid to maintain control. This could be in Moldova's ethnic-Russian-protectorate, Transnistria, or it could be in Syria.

The catastrophic economic consequences of the 'western' proxy war with Russia are setting in. As a result the high inflation, caused by supply side constrains due to sanctions and far too much spending, will ruin the middle classes of many countries.
To those who did not wear blinders and who knew of the real economies of the 'west' and Russia this was very predictable and predicted:
The U.S. is pushing its European 'allies' to commit economic suicide by sanctioning everything Russia. The U.S. should be more careful. It is one of the biggest buyers of Russian oil and its aircraft industry depends on titanium from Russia. Russia surely knows who is trying to hurt it the most and it surely knows how, and has the means to, hurt back.
The hurt has not at all reached its peak. This winter will be very difficult for Europe. Poor countries are even worse off. Many will experience hunger crises and riots. https://www.moonofalabama.org/2022/06/ukraine-the-us-is-on-the-road-towards-escalation.html#more
The Kiev authorities would very much like to open a military front in Transnistria, but such a development would be "the end of Moldova", Russian Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said this in an interview with TASS on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Wednesday. https://tass.com/politics/1465461
Stir up something in Russia's far east, perhaps? North Korea is right there, and those disputed islands that Japan and Russia both claim. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced Wednesday he plans to attend the upcoming NATO summit in Madrid later this month. Kishida blasted the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, accusing Moscow of violating the “order of the world” with its actions.
“I intend to make an appeal that changing the status quo unilaterally by force is unacceptable anywhere in the world and that security in Europe is inseparable from security in Indo-Pacific,” Kishida said during a news conference. “Russia’s invasion violates the peace and order of the world and can never be tolerated.”
While Kishida is set to become the first Japanese PM to ever attend a NATO summit, he won't be the only leader from the Asia-Pacific region to join the event, the secretary general of the alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, revealed as he spoke ahead of a ministerial NATO meeting in Brussels on Wednesday.
“For the first time in our history we will invite our Asia-Pacific partners, the prime ministers of New Zealand, Australia, Japan and also the president of South Korea will participate in the NATO Summit, which is a strong demonstration of our close partnership with these like-minded countries in the Asia-Pacific.”https://www.rt.com/news/557202-japan-pm-nato-summit/ Wigs sends this analysis of well organized information about US bioweapons labs in Ukraine, testing on mentally-ill Ukrainians, and widespread diseases, like hepatitis spreading in local populations.

FDA Risk-Benefit Analysis Hides ‘Bad Data’ on Moderna Shots for Kids
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s risk-benefit document in connection with the Moderna mRNA shot in kids is dishonest, and evidence that the public health establishment has abandoned science, logic, reason, rationality, empathy, health and medicine.
The risks of COVID-19 are so low in the childhood population that there were ZERO severe cases of COVID-19 in either the treatment or the control group. (The study proved nothing, but was unanimously accepted with smiles/handshakes.)
Therefore, the number needed to vaccinate, to prevent a single severe case of COVID-19 in the childhood population, is infinity. (Technically it’s undefined because you cannot divide by zero.)
The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC guidance documents for how to write a risk-benefit assessment state that one must provide a number needed to treat, the absolute risk reduction, and the relative risk reduction.
Moderna just skipped all that because the cartel makes its own rules.
Moderna is in a race against natural immunity. But natural immunity has already won because 74.2% of kids had natural immunity by February — so by now, the number is probably closer to 100%. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/fda-eua-moderna-covid-vaccine-young-kids/?

I don't think it's Myocarditis, I think it's injection-induced Cardiac Amyloidosis
I will be submitting this for peer-reviewed publication Cardiac Amyloidosis or Stiff Heart Syndrome is caused by deposits of abnormal proteins in the heart tissue. This results in the heart ceasing to function properly due to the replacement of normal heart muscle tissue with amyloids. Cardiac Amyloidosis is associated with thick heart walls and large atria. It can affect electrical conductivity resulting in arrhythmias and heart block .https://jessicar.substack.com/p/i-dont-think-its-myocarditis-i-think
