Boeing Accused of ‘Losing’ HUNDREDS of Faulty Parts

Boeing Accused of ‘Losing’ HUNDREDS of Faulty Parts

Twitter Post By Jamie McIntyre

Boeing accused of ‘losing’ HUNDREDS of faulty parts

A Boeing quality inspector alleged that the company lost track of hundreds of faulty parts, some possibly installed on new 737 Max planes. These claims were detailed in a June 11 complaint by inspector Sam Mohawk with OSHA, made public by a Senate subcommittee.

The complaint states Boeing lost up to 400 faulty parts and deleted their records from an internal system. Additionally, Mohawk claimed Boeing intentionally hid improperly stored parts from the FAA before an inspection.

October 7 Bombshell Drops! w/ Ben Swann

October 7 Bombshell Drops! w/ Ben Swann

By The Jimmy Dore Show

 

Here’s what others had to say:

HAL1984
I knew this day 1 but of course ‘conspiracy’..

Honzomatic
That bombshell dropped Oct 8th when Netanyahoo called the Palestinian attack ‘Israel’s 9/11’.

XeroxFlouride
There is no equivalency between both sides. One is an occupier. One is occupied. One accepts many of its people will be martyred by the enemy. The other accepts killing THEIR OWN people with the Hannibal doctrine. Very different things.
People feel so obliged to accept that some of Israel’s lies must be true. They aren’t. Just stop conceding to their regime change narrative. ‘Hamas bad. Hamas problem. Remove Hamas, fix problem.’ Hamas is not the problem. Hamas are the political and military representatives of Palestinians. Occupation is the problem. Genocide is the problem

stumpdII
WAKE U AMERICA!!! Israel is getting a free lunch.. and it is the usa that is paying for it while our own people go hungry. Valuable american resources are being wasted on war (for the OBSCENE profit of a few) while our nation crumbles. Israel buys our politicians to get that free lunch.. END ALL FOREIGN AID.. till we have a surplus to spend AND END ALL WARS, all covert ops to destabilize the world and murder innocent children.

DisgustedAlien
THE ISRAELI ZIONIST ASHKE–NAZI JUBASTARDS STARTED HAMAS & STILL FUND HAMAS. THEY R FKN DEVILS. MOSSAD’S MOTTO – BY DECEPTION WE DO WAR. SO FKN OBVIOUS. ISRAEL IS A SATANIC STATE – THE SPAWN OF SATAN. CHILD TRAFFICKING. ORGAN HARVESTERS & PEDOPHILES. MASS MURDERING SATANIC DEMONS.

DisgustedAlien
TIME TO END ISRAEL FOREVER. WE WILL BRING YOU DOWN U MURDERING SCUMBAGS.

Netanyahu planned both events. In 1995 he wrote who and how 9/11 would happen. described it detail. remember the IsraelinArt Students.

SUBV3RS1V3_V3RM1N
has it occurred to anyone else that perhaps Hamas is actually just the mosad in disguise? how many Hamas members have been caught or killed? compared to the number of civilians…

IceWendigo
YES it was OBVIOUS that Israel not only knew but had False Flag attacks all prepared ahead of time, along with Bullshit Propaganda

Loopie2000
Drop that dramatic background music. Hard to take information seriously that is delivered in that manner.
With that said, yes this is what I expected to come out. When Israel was asked how this could have possibly happened, they said something to the affect of “no time to look into that now. We’ll figure that out after our war”. Anytime I hear “no time to figure out the answers to critical questions until much later” you know what the answers are, and that they know the answers also.

Xnilo
Just like how nobody in the Bush administration could have POSSIBLY guessed terrorists would hijack planes and run them into buildings… except they just so happened to be wargaming that EXACT scenario THE DAY of 9/11 which caused MASSIVE confusion (on purpose). They lie on both sides of their mouths because idiots cant tell the truth from a hole in the ground.

HAL1984
The IDF girls monitoring CCTV 24/7 even watched them practicing attacks on a full sized model tank. They reported it to their leaders and we’re ignored.

Wb8fbucw2MHUzJY7
It took hours to respond.
You hang your commanders for cooperating with the enemy or it was a false flag.
I don’t see a third option, this border is like the Korean border.

poopyhands
Egypt Intel warned Israel 5 days prior. This whole thing was All by design.

DeeDeeTiger
Hamas is funded, paid off, as A TOOL OF ISRAEL. THIS IS THEATRE TO DISGUISE A PLANNED GENOCIDE to take over the natural gas off the coast and build the Ben Grunion Canal after the blew up Nordstream and invaded Ukraine to take over OIL TRAFFIC TO EUROPE.

Dippa19
I was shown a cover of the Economist Magazine which came out prior to Oct 7th. It had Hamas fighters using Paragliders on the cover. They had prior knowledge or helped plan it. This was obvious a coordinated event which a lot of people knew.

truthseeker2065
The israeli civilians knew, the IDF knew, the Israeli govt, Bibi knew…….BECAUSE IT WAS ALL PLANNED YEAR IN ADVANCE. Not by Hamas……BY ISRAEL !!! WAKE UP…. Jesus H, how dense do you have to be?? You can’t see this was all premeditated by Israel to take back the land??? cmon fat…..lets go…..do some pushups….and WAKE UP !!

poopyhands
This has been Israel’s plan since 1948. This is f*cking disgusting. These Zionist need to be held accountable. They are endangering the Jewish community. I’m not a hater. I have no problem with regular Jewish people.

After meeting with Zelensky, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, abruptly refused to participate in the G7 summit, which began today in Italy, citing “religious reasons.”

Instead, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, has committed to attending this year’s BRICS summit in Russia, hosted by Vladimir Putin.

This is all unfolding as Saudi Arabia’s 50-year-old petrodollar agreement with the United States has expired, with no new agreement in place.

BREAKING MAINSTREAM NEWS AUSTRALIA: Leading Doctors Accuse Government of Spreading Misinformation on Safety and Efficacy of Covid Vaccine

BREAKING MAINSTREAM NEWS, AUSTRALIA: Leading Doctors Accuse Government of Spreading Misinformation on Safety and Efficacy of Covid Vaccine

“The Covid-19 vaccinations have been perhaps the most egregious health response measure in recorded history,”.

This is huge.

‘Multibillion-dollar failure’: Aussie doctors rip into Covid response

Aussie doctors have delivered a scathing verdict on the Covid response, from misinformation about the virus to the “failure” of the vaccination program.

A top doctor has ripped into Australia’s handling of the Covid pandemic, accusing the government of spreading “misinformation” and putting people at risk.

Dr Kerryn Phelps accused the government of fuelling mistrust of health authorities while overselling the “safety and efficacy” of vaccines, and ignoring those suffering serious adverse events from the jabs.

Dr Phelps, who first went public in late 2022 about the “devastating” vaccine injury both she and her wife had suffered after a Pfizer jab, said while there was “a lot that our public health agencies got right during this pandemic”, significant mistakes were made.

The former MP for Wentworth and Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney, and past president of the Australian Medical Association (AMA), is one of dozens of doctors and medical professionals who made public submissions to the federal government’s Covid-19 Response Inquiry.

Dr Phelps slammed “confusing misinformation” spread by authorities early on.

This included claims that Covid was not airborne, there was “no need for masks”, children did not spread the disease and that “herd immunity” could be reached.

All of this turned out to be false.

She said the consequence of the “let it rip” decision in late 2021 led to a “massive number of infections and excess Covid-related deaths estimated by actuaries to be 20,000 in 2022”.

“Political decisions were made, and public health advice was provided based on this misinformation, fuelling mistrust in subsequent advice emanating from those sources,” she said.

Regarding the vaccine rollout, Dr Phelps said “doctors and the public were assured that the vaccines would reduce the risk of severe disease, hospitalisations and death from the virus” and the “information being disseminated emphasised their claimed ‘safety and efficacy’”.

“Of course, early in the rollout of the vaccines, little was known about the potential range of adverse effects of the vaccine,” she said.

“In the urgency to vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible, patients who had suffered significant vaccine injury were encouraged or mandated to have subsequent doses with inadequate evidence for the potential damage this might do to someone who had already suffered an adverse reaction to the vaccine.

“It was extremely difficult for patients who had been affected to obtain a medical exemption.”

Another consequence of this lack of information about adverse events “was that many patients report that they were not believed, or their doctors initially did not recognise the diagnosis or did not have treatment protocols in place”.

“This meant that patients had to take matters into their own hands and set up advocacy groups such as Coverse to share experiences and provide much needed support,” she said.

“It also became evident that these were not sterilising vaccines, and that while they were reported to provide some protection against severe disease and long Covid, they would not stop infection or transmission or the development of long Covid.”

It comes as Dr Nick Coatsworth, the country’s former deputy chief medical officer, now the Nine Network’s medical expert, said he would not be getting any more Covid vaccines. Speaking to 2GB’s Ben Fordham on Wednesday, Dr Coatsworth said he stopped getting vaccinated “about two years ago”.

“I had three vaccines, and that’s been enough for me,” he said.

“Any reason why?” Fordham asked.

“Because I don’t think I need any more, Ben, and the science tells me that I don’t,” Dr Coatsworth said.

For future pandemics, Dr Phelps called for a “return to the precautionary principle and the fundamentals of public health and disease prevention” and a “comprehensive plan for research and development of treatments”, including sterilising vaccines.

Among the recommendations in her submission were for greater access to high-quality N95 masks with associated mandates in healthcare facilities, a “concerted and sustained effort” to reduce Covid transmission in schools, a return to isolation for infected individuals during the infectious period with appropriate financial support, and expansion of hybrid work and education.

She also called for research into the underlying mechanisms of vaccine injury, better follow-up of adverse events reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and identification of barriers to reporting such reactions, as well as better information for GPs and a review of the Covid-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme.

In a separate submission to the inquiry, Kooyong MP Dr Monique Ryan was strongly critical of the “extent and severity” of Morrison government’s “failures” during Covid.

In her submission she cited “lack of preparedness” for a global pandemic, inadequate quarantine and testing, delays in procurement and rollout of vaccines and failure to “combat widespread public misinformation” about the jabs.

But the Teal MP also said the government had failed to “adequately address community concerns regarding side-effects of vaccinations”, which she said were “not well communicated to the general public” contributing to “mistrust of the system”.

“Constituents also reported unreasonable delays and rejection of claims by the Covid-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme,” Dr Ryan said.

A number of submissions also highlighted human rights concerns around Covid measures.

The Queensland Human Rights Commission (QHRC) said it had received more than 1500 complaints, the majority related to border closures, hotel quarantine, and mandatory mask and vaccination requirements.

“Rights raised in relation to these complaints included recognition and equality before the law, the right not to be subject to medical treatment without consent, privacy and reputation, humane treatment when deprived of liberty, and freedom of movement,” it said.

Queensland GP Dr Melissa McCann, who is leading a vaccine injury class action against the federal government, said in her submission it was “difficult to know” whether the key Covid response measures “could have been managed any worse”.

“The Covid-19 vaccinations have been perhaps the most egregious health response measure in recorded history,” she said.

“The success of a vaccination campaign is not measured by the percentage of population who were convinced to be vaccinated, despite this being reported by various official sources as evidence of a successful program.

“A successful vaccination campaign ought to result in the majority of vaccinated persons not becoming infected with the disease the vaccines were designed to protect against.

“A successful campaign would result in reduced number of cases and reduced transmission of disease throughout a population following the vaccination campaign.

“It ought to result in small numbers of adverse events after vaccination and such events comparable with traditional vaccines. It ought to result in an overall reduction in severe disease, deaths caused by the disease and reduction in overall excess mortality across a population.”

By all of these measures, the Covid vaccination campaign “has been a complete failure despite the multibillion-dollar investment”, she argued.

Pfizer Australia, in its submission to the inquiry, said it was “proud of our role in the pandemic”, noting a recent paper in the journal Vaccines estimated the timely rollout of Covid jabs resulted in overall benefit to the Australian economy of $181 billion.

“The probability of a pandemic with similar impact to Covid-19 is around 2 per cent in any given year, meaning someone born in the year 2000 would have a 38 per cent likelihood of having already experienced a pandemic by 2023,” Pfizer said.

“In order to improve Australia’s response to the next pandemic it will require proactive planning and broader, earlier availability of vaccines and treatments.”

AstraZeneca said its vaccine, which was discontinued in Australia in March 2023, was estimated to have “saved more than 6.3 million lives worldwide in the first year”.

While the drug maker has acknowledged that its vaccine could, in rare instances, cause fatal blood clots and low platelet counts, AstraZeneca told the inquiry that there has been “public misperception relating to the risks associated with the vaccine”.

It said TGA regulations prohibiting pharmaceutical companies from promoting medicines “inadvertently prevented AstraZeneca from proactively responding to incorrect claims associated with adverse events”.

The AMA, in its submission, said while the vaccination program was “not perfect”, it felt in general it was “well planned and implemented”.

“We recognise this was not the view of the public, but this view was largely perpetuated by the media,” the AMA said.

“For example, the AMA spent days responding to individuals frustrated they could not receive an initial vaccine for up to six weeks in the initial phase of the rollout.”

The peak body said it remained “strongly supportive” of the decision to grant emergency authorisation for the vaccines, and added it was “concerned that governments are all too willing to put the past behind us and not seek to properly evaluate and learn from Australia’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic — likely because this might invite criticism of their actions”.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) argued “misinformation about Covid-19 and Covid-19 vaccines was rife during the pandemic and a mistrust of science, medicine and medical practitioners was a common element of much of the misinformation shared, particularly on social media”.

“The Australian government should fund a public awareness campaign to educate Australians about the importance of immunisations and heeding the advice of medical experts in general and promptly during future pandemics or major public health disasters,” it said.

The Covid-19 Response Inquiry is due to hand down its report by the end of September.

Every Dollar Counts. To Pay for the War, Ukraine Embraces Privatization

Every Dollar Counts. To Pay for the War, Ukraine Embraces Privatization

By Constant Méheut and Daria Mitiuk

The government hopes to sell off a range of companies to fund the military and stabilize the economy as the grueling conflict with Russia drains its coffers.

Towering over Kyiv for six decades, Hotel Ukraine has witnessed some pivotal moments in Ukraine’s recent history.

Crowds gathered on the square in front of the 14-story hotel to celebrate the fall of the Soviet Union. Popular uprisings on what was later called Independence Square toppled Ukrainian leaders. Today, blue and yellow flags cover lawns near the hotel, serving as a reminder of the many lives lost in the war between Ukraine and Russia.

Now, Hotel Ukraine is up for auction as part of an effort to sell off some large state assets to help fund the military and bolster an economy battered by a grueling war that has drained the country’s coffers. The starting price for Hotel Ukraine is $25 million.

Beginning this summer, the government will auction some 20 state-owned companies, including Hotel Ukraine, a vast shopping mall in Kyiv, and several mining and chemical companies.

The privatization push has two main goals: to raise money for a state budget that is short $5 billion this year for military spending, and to strengthen Ukraine’s flagging economy by attracting investment that will, officials hope, make it more self-sufficient over time.

“The budget is in the red,” Oleksiy Sobolev, Ukraine’s deputy economy minister, said in an interview. “We need to find other ways to get money to keep the macroeconomic situation stable, to help the army and to win this war against Russia.”

Still, the privatization will only go so far, and faces considerable challenges for a nation at war, with many citizens worried the sales could be subject to Ukraine’s pervasive corruption.

Ievgen Baranov, the managing director at Dragon Capital, a Kyiv-based investment firm, said that privatization would work only if the government “acts as a responsible seller who’s able to give guarantees and indemnities to prospective buyers.”

Mindful that investors may be put off by the conflict, the government has set itself a modest target of selling a minimum of about $100 million worth of assets this year — a sum that pales in comparison to the multibillion-dollar military aid packages sent by Western allies.

Ukrainian officials and experts acknowledge that given the risks posed by the conflict, assets are likely to be sold at lower prices than they would have been before the war. But they hope the privatizations will help prop up the economy by creating more jobs and tax revenue in addition to bringing in more investment. The situation is urgent, they say.

“The state is in desperate need of money,” said Michael Lukashenko, a partner at Aequo, a law firm that has advised companies on privatization. “If we don’t sell now and raise money, soon there will be nothing to sell because the property will be either destroyed or occupied.”

A statue with sharks and a bird can be seen in front of a sectioned window facing buildings outside.

After the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Ukraine inherited many poorly managed and debt-ridden state enterprises. Today, it owns some 3,100 companies, with less than half actually operating and only 15 percent generating profits, according to official figures.

Last year, the five most unprofitable companies cost the state more than $50 million. “This level of cost is unacceptable, especially during wartime, when every expenditure must be carefully controlled,” Vitaliy Koval, the head of Ukraine’s State Property Fund, which manages state companies, said in a recent interview at the fund’s headquarters in Kyiv.

On the wall of his office hung a map of Ukraine with pins representing some 30 state-owned distilleries. Only four are operating, Mr. Koval said. The goal was to remove all the pins, he said.

Mr. Koval said he and the State Property Fund were advertising the privatizations at a conference in Berlin this week focusing on Ukraine’s recovery.

A former construction and transport entrepreneur, Mr. Koval said he saw state-owned companies as a “breeding ground for corruption and other illegal activities.” His fund was now conducting “triage” to determine which enterprises should be privatized, liquidated or kept under state control. “Privatization is synonymous with cleansing,” he said.

The government’s ultimate goal is to retain control of only 100 companies.

Mr. Koval said Ukraine did not currently have enough weapons to prevent its factories from being destroyed or captured by Russia and needed to quickly sell off assets to “buy more shells and air defenses” to protect them.

“Investing a few thousand dollars into shells today is more prudent than risking assets falling into Russian hands in the future,” he said.

Past privatization efforts have often been ill-conceived, economists say, allowing large assets to fall into the hands of oligarchs on the cheap, or have been delayed for years by unfavorable market conditions and legal disputes over the payment of company debts.

The government says the auction system will make the process more transparent. But it remains to be seen if the debt disputes can be successfully resolved.

One of the biggest assets up for sale is United Mining and Chemical Company, known as U.M.C.C., one of the world’s largest producers of titanium, a metal used in aircraft and medical implants. Three auctions were canceled before the war, though amid the pandemic and the threat of a Russian invasion, because of a lack of bidders.

The Ukrainian government is now hoping that a fourth auction, scheduled for the fall, will actually happen. Vitaliy Strukov, a managing partner at BDO Ukraine, the financial firm advising the government on the sale of U.M.C.C., said seven investors had already expressed interest in the sale, which will start at around $100 million.

Soldiers can be seen looking out from tanks.

The privatization push has two main goals: to raise money for a state budget that is short $5 billion this year for military spending, and to strengthen Ukraine’s flagging economy.

In Kyiv, many people have mixed feelings about the privatization push. Some said that “every hryvnia counts” in supporting the war effort, referring to Ukraine’s currency. But they also expressed fears about potential corruption.

“Where this money goes, nobody knows,” said Olha Kalinichenko, 36, who was having breakfast recently in the restaurant of Hotel Ukraine, enjoying a view of Independence Square with the golden domes of cathedrals rising between Soviet-era buildings on the horizon.

Ms. Kalinichenko said the hotel held a special place in her heart since it was the site of many battles for Ukraine’s sovereignty.

“I myself came here during the Maidan revolution; many volunteers stayed at the Hotel Ukraine,” she said, referring to the popular uprising that ousted Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russian president, in February 2014 and foreshadowed the current conflict with Moscow.

A hotel lobby. A person can be seen sitting at a table, and one walking.

Alla Sheverieva, an employee of the hotel for more than 30 years, said she remembered seeing Ukrainian riot police officers violently dispersing crowds that had gathered on the square during the Maidan revolution. Snipers also fired on the crowd from the top of the hotel.

“I heard shooting and there were crazy screams in the hallway as they started bringing in the dead and the wounded,” Ms. Sheverieva said, recalling how the hotel’s lobby was turned into a makeshift hospital, its marble floors smeared with blood.

Mr. Koval, the head of the property fund, said the hotel had accumulated $1 million in debt, and that the government should not hold onto it for its history. Many Soviet-era businesses were now “relics of the past,” he said. “Today we have to break free from this legacy.”

Ukraine is especially eager to attract foreign investors “to show that private investment is possible even during the war,” said Mr. Baranov of Dragon Capital.

But Ukrainian officials and economists admit that wartime conditions will make luring investors a challenge.

In April, Russian missiles destroyed a power plant operated by Centrenergo, one of the companies Ukraine had hoped to privatize. “There isn’t much to sell now,” Mr. Baranov said.

At the G7, Biden Will Push for Frozen Russian Assets to Help Ukraine

At the G7, Biden Will Push for Frozen Russian Assets to Help Ukraine

By Erica L. Green and David E. Sanger

President Biden faces the hurdle of convincing his allies that the United States plans to stay in the fight with Ukraine, no matter what happens in November.

Two weeks after President Biden reversed himself and approved firing American weapons into Russian territory, he and his closest allies are preparing a different kind of assault, using the proceeds from Russia’s own financial assets to aid the reconstruction of Ukraine.

For two years, the world’s largest Western economies have debated how to deal with $300 billion in frozen Russian assets, which the Kremlin left in Western financial institutions after the Ukraine invasion began in 2022.

Now, after long debates about whether the West could legally turn those assets over to the government of President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, the allies seem on the brink of a compromise, to be announced at the Group of 7 summit in Italy.

The Group of 7, which comprises the world’s wealthiest large democracies, is about to agree to a loan to Ukraine of roughly $50 billion to rebuild the country’s devastated infrastructure, with the understanding that it will be paid back by interest earned on the frozen Russian assets, Western officials said. But even that amount, experts say, would only begin to make a dent in building a new Ukraine.

The financing announcement will be only a part of a summit this week that will range from how to reverse Russia’s new momentum to how to bring about a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Mr. Biden and Mr. Zelensky will meet on Thursday and sign a security agreement, said Jake Sullivan, Mr. Biden’s national security adviser.

“We want to demonstrate that the U.S. supports the people of Ukraine, that we stand with them, and that will continue to help address their security needs, not just tomorrow, but out into the future,” Mr. Sullivan told reporters aboard Air Force One on the way to Italy.

“By signing this, we’ll also be sending Russia a signal of our resolve,” he added. “If Vladimir Putin thinks that he can outlast the coalition supporting Ukraine, he’s wrong.”

There will be moments during the summit when the leaders will try to lift their eyes beyond the current crises, including a meeting between the leaders and Pope Francis, focused on harnessing the power of artificial intelligence.

The loan deal, combined with a raft of new sanctions aimed at countering China’s effort to remake Russia’s defense industrial base, are part of the latest efforts to bolster Ukraine and hobble Russia at a perilous moment in the 27-month old conflict.

Still, Europe is bracing for the possibility that former President Donald J. Trump, who has spoken openly of pulling out of NATO, could be back in power by the time the group next meets, in 2025. And several of the leaders present — including Prime Minister Rishi Sunak of Britain and President Emmanuel Macron of France — are facing elections that could redefine Europe.

Mr. Biden faces the hurdle of convincing his allies, starting with Mr. Zelensky, that the United States plans to stay in the fight with Ukraine, no matter what happens in November. The extensive delays this spring in getting congressional passage of the $61 billion in new ammunition and air defenses, Mr. Biden’s aides acknowledge, cost Ukraine lives, territory and tactical military advantage.

Mr. Biden told Mr. Zelensky last week, in France, that “I apologize for the weeks of not knowing what was going to pass,” and put the onus on Republicans in Congress. “Some of our very conservative members were holding it up,” he said.

But the scope of the opposition in Congress also raised the question of whether that last injection of a sizable military package could be the last, and threatens Mr. Biden’s claim as the Western leader who rallied the rest of the allies to fend off further assaults by President Vladimir V. Putin.

People walking toward a light-colored stone building.

Now, with the war at a critical moment, the Group of 7 leaders seem poised to end months of deliberations over how to use the $300 billion in frozen Russian central bank assets, which were largely kept in European financial institutions. The idea is to provide an infusion of economic aid to Ukraine.

During a trip to Normandy last week, Mr. Biden appeared to have persuaded France, one of the last holdouts, to support the deal. At the end of the trip, President Emmanuel Macron of France told reporters that he hoped “all members of the G7 will agree to a $50 billion solidarity fund for Ukraine.”

The Biden administration, after considerable internal arguments, had been pushing to outright seize the assets. But that idea fell flat in Europe, where most of the funds are held, out of concern that it would be a violation of international law.

The European Union did agree to use the interest that the central bank assets have been earning where most of them are held — in Belgium’s central securities depository, Euroclear — to provide Ukraine with about 3 billion euros annually.

But the Biden administration wanted to provide Ukraine with more funds upfront, so it devised a plan to use that interest to back a loan that the United States and other Group of 7 countries could deliver immediately.

The loan could be as large as $50 billion and would be repaid over time with the so-called windfall profits being generated from Russia’s money.

In recent weeks, finance ministers from the Group of 7 have been trying to hash out the complicated details of how such a loan would work, with several outstanding questions still to be answered. Officials have been trying to determine how the money would actually be transmitted to Ukraine, and have discussed running it through an institution such as the World Bank as an intermediary.

It is unclear how the loan would be repaid if the war ended before the bond matured or if interest rates fell, making the proceeds on the assets insufficient to repay the loan.

John E. Herbst, senior director of the Eurasia Center at the Atlantic Council, and a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, said that unlocking the assets was of principal importance for the Group of 7, especially after the stalemate in Congress and the United States’ delays in providing Ukraine with certain weapons.

“The administration has been quick to get aid to Ukraine once Congress moved, and that’s to its credit,” he said. “But we still are slow in getting Ukraine what it needs in terms of the right weapon system, especially right now. This is not just an American failure; it’s a failure of the entire alliance.”

The unlocking of frozen assets would be “a game changer,” said Evelyn Farkas, the executive director of the McCain Institute at Arizona State University, who previously served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia under President Barack Obama.

Ms. Farkas said that the U.S. delays likely “focused the European mind,” in making European countries think: “OK, we have to come up with alternatives because the U.S. is not reliable.”

“Hopefully,” she said, “they stay focused.”

President Biden will face the hurdle of convincing his allies, starting with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, that the United States plans to stay in the fight with Ukraine, no matter what happens in the U.S. presidential election in November.

Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel: “There are Millions of Americans that have Long Covid and Millions of Americans Out of a Job Because of Long Covid”. How Stupid Are These People Falling for Long Covid?

Twitter Post By Jamie McIntyre

How stupid are these people falling for long COVID-19?

Intelligence doesn’t come in a needle, otherwise, we wouldn’t have so many dumbed-down Westerners who would believe anything the globalist media tells them.

I can’t imagine what causes “long COVID“ other than it’s a simple fraudulent industry cover for vaccine adverse reactions, something the industry has been doing for decades, well before COVID i.e. blaming adverse reactions as the disease to boost vaccine sales, the very cause of the issue in the first place.

Invent a disease; or make it in a lab to sell the solution to naive gullible Westerners and politicians- i.e. the gravy train of vaccines where stupid Governments are scared into spending tens of billions of taxpayer money on deadly vaccines for overhyped diseases or purely invented ones.

To predict the future. Look at past patterns of behavior. It reveals everything. No crystal ball is needed.

The fraud of the vaccine industry’s past, told us exactly not only the planned mandating of vaccines 8 years before they did in, 2016 they would by 2022, but during COVID the exact things they would do and eventually did,

How did we know?

Including the vaccines would be deadly and would cause increased excess deaths to be blamed on the disease to cover for the real cause being the vaccine – almost the perfect crime.

Over a decade, the Australian National Review has investigated the fraud of the vaccine industry, and we can read them like a book.

It’s so blatant. Yet many refused to listen

And many of them sadly are already dead, and many more yet to know they will be joining them soon

Listen or die perhaps

Ignorance is no longer bliss but in a Globalist coup of the world – is it a death sentence?

It has for many
