This photo of a Ukrainian soldier in the trenches in the Battle of Bakhmut was taken some time around November 2022. I hope for him and the sake of his family and friends that he’s still alive. Given the way this battle has become a meat grinder since 01 August 2022, especially for Ukrainian troops dying on average by a five to sometimes a 10-to-1 margin. His fate may have already been sealed in mud and blood on a battlefield that looks more like the First World War at the Somme or at Verdun than something raging in the 2020s. It roars and rumbles on! Even now when tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers are virtually surrounded by the Russians underneath their overwhelming artillery superiority. The Ukrainian leadership keeps sending more Ukrainian soldiers by the thousands to die there. The Ukrainian Army will be bled white at Bakhmut.

A few general things to cover before I do my review of the bombshell revelations about who blew up the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, written by Seymour Hersh. First, I want to take a moment to give you a brief overview of what is going on in the Ukrainian War: the real story, so I contend, and not what slop the Western media plops into the sheeple’s troth for daily consumption.

As I predicted in my last 2022 article stream, the much anticipated “Russian Winter Offensive” has not become some blitzkrieg sweep of Russian forces across Ukraine but a slow “Russian Steamroller” affair. This war of attrition is literally bleeding out the Ukrainian armed forces. The Russians are allowing the Ukrainians to continue their self-suicidal strategy of fighting for every square foot of territory especially around Bakhmut, the linchpin to their entrenched Line of Contact (LOC) along the western edge of the breakaway Russian Ukrainian republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in the Donbass region of Eastern Ukraine.

Russian encirclements are developing and trapping thousands of surviving Ukrainians along the line as I last predicted. I’m expecting that a sudden collapse of the front could come anytime from now (20 March) through the early weeks of April. Despite a great temptation of mine to anticipate a sudden unravelling of the Ukrainian defensive line, I must for the record note that Russians aren’t in any hurry. Indeed I don’t think they’re trying to break through the line, such as at Bakhmut. They will just plod along as winter ends today. The Ukrainians will keep bravely and stupidly throwing themselves at the Russians who for their part will keep incrementally advancing as they are waiting for spring muds to dry out later in April to then escalate their violence to levels not seen yet in this war. It feels to me that the spring thaw will be as brief as the winter was unseasonably warm like I predicted. They’re goal is to destroy the Ukrainian armed forces not to take territory—and they are succeeding in this with the aid of the Ukrainian politicians and generals who are murdering their own army with their decisions.

The last paved road into Bakhmut, the linchpin of the Zelensky line, is days if not hours away from being occupied by the Russian Wagner PMC storm troops and Ukrainian forces are still being thrown in, over the fields and farm roads under a gauntlet of shelling to meet their fate, with thousands of others already in the Bakhmut cauldron encirclement, to be killed or captured.

Bakhmut, since this urban “Stalingrad” began, has become the graveyard of the Ukrainian Army. When it falls, the surviving veterans will mingle with thousands of hardly trained new conscripts, many as young as 17 or 16 years old, A lot of women also under arms now—they’ll fall back to the final defense line before Kramatorsk and Slavyansk. Just northeast of Slavyansk, behind the Russian lines, I’m getting reports of a major Russian buildup of 180 brigades, 1,000 tanks, the same number of artillery pieces perhaps. It is likely the northern pincer of Russia’s major spring offensive coming. When the Donbass Ukrainian entrenchments collapse, the surviving Ukrainian brigades may find themselves trapped from retreating to the Dnieper River and will either be destroyed or surrender to the Russians. We’ll see. The spring will find the Ukrainians exposed, first stuck in the mud then under the greater peril of a dried Ukrainian Steppe, flat as a pancake with no more defendable conurbations like they had in Donbass and the Russians are coming! (Ukrainians retreating through the mud past tanks and APCs destroyed by Russian artillery.)

I’ll call the Battle of Bakhmut, and other developing encirclements down the Line of Contact, such as at Avdeeka and Ugledar, Kiev’s last stand in the two Donbass oblasts (provinces) that declared their independence from Ukraine in 2014. Since then its Russian Ukrainian citizens have suffered thousands of mostly civilian dead from Ukrainian terror shelling for the last nine years. These Oblasts has been absorbed—the people living there would say “liberated—into the Russian Federation. It is Russia now. They are never going back to living under the Nazi terror that the Kiev government started in 2014.

There is another large mass of Russian men, tanks, guns and materiel gathering and slowly through skirmishes, shaping a future offensive’s jumping off points south in Zaporozhye Oblast. This will be a south pincer of the Russian spring offensive planning to connect with the northeastern pincer I earlier mentioned. There may be a third pincer coming out of Kursk and Voronezh Russian Oblasts. Look to this happening whenever the battleground hardens at the end of the spring thaw, April into May at the latest.

The Russian Spring Offensive may have as its aim the occupation of all of Ukraine from its eastern bank of the Dnieper River to the Russian borders. The Ukrainian armed forces unlucky enough to be on the wrong side of the Dnieper River will find few bridges to cross to the West. Either Russian submarine drone bombs or a dramatic attack by Russian Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, will take down most of those bridges denying all remaining Ukrainian forces in the west any chance of reinforcing the dissolving Ukrainian Eastern Front.

Not only has Ukraine been depopulated of its troops through attrition. There has been a Ukrainian diaspora of the civilian population becoming refugees. The war is lost because there aren’t enough people to run its collapsed economy and collapsing military. Here are the numbers according to Col. Douglas Macgregor on Judging Freedom related to host and former Judge Andrew Napolitano, recorded on 6 February 2023.

According to the Colonel’s source who works in demographics, Ukraine’s total estimated population at the beginning of the war was 37.5 million. There were already two million Ukrainians already working in either the UK or European nations. You have already four million Russian Ukrainian citizens already living in Russian occupation or under Russian administration in the Donbass and oblasts in the south and east. Ten million Ukrainians have fled the country during the war! A million have gone into Russia and the rest have gone into the West.

Add to those the end-of-January count of 157,000 dead on the battlefield. That probably does not include the 35,000 missing in action who are mostly dead Ukrainians left on the battlefields. (Some sources put the Ukrainian missing at 87,000!) That means the recorded dead, and mostly dead listed as missing, is approaching 200,000 to nearly 300,000! Indeed the slaughtering the Ukrainians are suffering in Bakhmut, in over a month since Macgregor’s estimates, their lives being lost mostly from the overwhelming superiority of Russian artillery domination, destroying them before they ever actually see a Russian charging upon them firing, so the Ukrainian death toll at the very least has most likely already crossed the 200,000 mark.

Cemeteries across Ukraine are overwhelmed with fresh graves. This is just one of hundreds of photos I have collected.

You will hear something different from your Western media outlets, that the Russians have suffered that many killed. They have not. The numbers are, shockingly low compared to the Ukrainians. More on that in a moment.

I have seen many a video of the Russian second echelon troops throughout this war trying to collect and identify bodies, documenting Ukrainian ID cards with the corpses then zipped inside body bags piled like cord wood into trucks to be driven off and buried. The Russians probably have a better idea how many of those 35k (or 87k) missing men are mostly dead and when the war is over many a Ukrainian family will at last find out confirmation of the death of their husbands, sons, cousins, uncles, or fathers, mothers and sisters from the Russians. They will do this because Ukrainians are family. You won’t hear or see that much in the Western media. This conflict between brother-sister Slavs is even more intermingled and intermarried than the American Civil War had been. Both sides hurt for the tragedy of it.

Add to 200,000 dead are 400,000 wounded Ukrainians, half of which will not return to active duty because the medical system is so broken that they’re not getting the care the Russian wounded are getting. Politico has just admitted to over 100,000 dead Ukrainian veterans having already fallen, leaving the Ukrainian replacements hardly trained and in some cases on average only surviving two to four hours in Bakhmut’s ruins and trenches.

The Russian Ministry of Defense reports that 90 percent of Russian wounded are back in their units. That sounds a bit inflated to me, but whatever the true number, it will be a very high return rate. It may be that high because most of the Russians are receiving only gunshot wounds, whereas Colonel Macgregor estimates that 74 percent of the Ukrainian casualties are falling out of the fight forever because they are mostly suffering crippling artillery wounds from Russian high explosives and shrapnel.

Col. Macgregor stated that, “Supposedly when Zaluzhny [Ukraine’s general in chief] was in town [Washington DC] talking to [Secretary of Defense Lloyd] Austin and [Head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff] General Mark Milley, several people have insisted that he actually told them that 257,000 Ukrainians have died. That includes soldiers, in other words, those in uniform, civilians, all types, all kinds… We don’t know. That’s an unconfirmed rumor.”

Ukraine started the war a little over a year ago with 37 million citizens. It is now left with only 18 to 22 million. That’s the population of a Texas-sized nation now reduced to a population of the dinky Netherlands.

“You cannot sustain this war with that small population,” Macgregor concluded.

The Ukrainian people haven’t been sustaining this war for a long time now. American and European tax dollars sustain them, as their economies sag and the mood of their people darken. Kiev has been given a deadline before “gifts” of US and NATO stocks of ammunition and weapons will cut off: summer 2023.

The Western media’s stories of 200,000 dead Russians is not backed up by the efforts of even staunchly anti-Putin research and press sources. Alexander Mercouris reported on these numbers back on 4 February 2023. He used rare announcements of the Russian Ministry of Defense, and also Defense Minister Shoigu from September 2022 plus a very careful study of funerary announcements across Russia that the BBC had calculated with the help of Medusa. They run a dissident Russian website, based in Latvia doing most of the checking of the death and burial records in Russian archives. The New York Times, ever not naming its sources, had reported that “American and other government officials” put the Russian killed and wounded in Ukraine in February has nearly topping 200,000. Mercouris noted from Brian Beletic of the New Atlas that these sources never tell one how they came to these figures, how they broke the numbers down.

Beletic then cited a very good CIA source, retired CIA officer Larry Johnson, who is a current member of the VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity). These consist of some of the finest retired intelligence agents and analysts that were in the spook business. Johnson stated that these extraordinary ballpark figures are uncorroborated numbers from Ukraine’s government.

The Russian Ministry of Defense, however, does present a daily account of Ukrainian losses of men and material while explaining how they broke down these numbers, unlike the Ukrainians. I’ve been somewhat skeptical about their conclusions, as is Mercouris who doesn’t report them because of that, even though I sometimes do.

BBC and Medusa Website are the only western source I’ve found that explains how they count Russian dead. Their numbers aren’t even close to the 200,000 ballpark numbers.

Mercouris said, “I seem to remember that the last BBC assessment…said that the BBC and Medusa had found evidence of around 12,000 dead Russians. I mean actual concrete factual evidence… They guesstimated that the actual total was between 40 and 60 percent higher. And that would bring us to, perhaps as of that time [in around mid-January 2023] around 20,000 men in total as the actual numbers of people killed.”

Mercouris is right when he points out that this number is not that far off from what the Russian Defense Ministry reports, but he is not at all certain that these numbers include the PMC Wagner (a military organization akin to being a Russian version of the French Foreign Legion) killed in action or count the Russian Donbass militia losses. He does add that the Lugansk and Donetsk governments do give frequent casualty reports, and these are consistently far below any Ukrainian baseball park numbers. Their homerun numbers sound like they were cracked by bats wielded by the notorious, juiced up super hitters like Manny Ramirez, Sammy Sosa, or Mark McGwire on steroids.

So, Mercouris gives the one dead to three wounded ratios, estimating that since mid-to-late January total Russian casualties are around 80,000 killed and wounded, adding that Russia’s Minister of Defense, Shoigu, back in September 2022 is the source of that 90 percent full-recovery rate of Russian wounded. That would mean around 54,000 men have returned to the combat line and that’s a number far exceeding any return of Ukrainians to the front line were which is only 50 percent, if even that high.

It would seem that if the Russians had lost 200,000 dead that the BBC/Medusa would be reporting this TEN TIMES larger number of burials across Russia. If pictures of fields full of Russian flags, like the Ukrainians I depicted above, had existed, I’d post one. Still, it is a very high number, a number far higher than Americans would tolerate in Vietnam, but the Russians will soldier on because unlike Vietnam, this war is seen as an existential threat to Russia’s future existence. The Russians in one year of killed in action have only to lose another 17,000 to match all the years and all the dead Americans reported in the Vietnam war! I foresee that they will far exceed that threshold before this conflict is over.

It is interesting that the New York Times and all the other Western media outlets just memory hole the BBC/Medusa count and the fact that both sources are anti-Russian government to the max and are dissatisfied with what they are counting accurately. In short, they would LOVE to report there are 200,000 Russian dead. At least they are one rare example of western journalism doing their job rather than propagating lies.

I’ve heard reports from BBC/Medusa that the number of confirmed Russian killed in Action has added another 2,000 (14,000 to that number down the last six weeks or so. They probably are those killed so far in 2023.


I’ll wrap up my Ukrainian War winter report for now. No big blitzkrieg came from the Russians. Wait for it coming after the spring thaw. At present the rainy season’s thaw continues with Russia’s slow grinding down the Ukrainians still standing and maybe a possible collapse of the LOC in Donbass is coming soon, and suddenly! Could even be before April begins.

All that big talk in NATO capitals about sending 350 German made Leopard and US Abrams heavy tanks has all backed off to giving them 80 if they’re lucky in dribs and drabs (more on that in articles below). The NATO leaders at the annual Munich Security Summit this February beat the war drum harder than ever with EU Foreign Minister Josep Borrell demanding their side completely drain NATO arsenals of artillery shells and ammo if not repair mostly neglected and busted NATO tanks sent to Ukraine. Moreover, it looks like Ukrainian soldiers, on foot I guess, will be pressed into an offensive attack somewhere along the deeply reinforced lines the Russians have prepared in depth south from Kherson, to Zaporozhye, east, to the Donbass, and north into eastern Kharkov oblast. The Ukrainians will not have any measure of the tanks and APCs they need. They are running out of artillery pieces. Their shells are running out for the guns still functioning. The average rate of fire last summer was a measly 12,000 shells a day across the LOC. Shortages reduce that now to 3,000 shells. The Russian shellfire throughout the war has not abated. Average expenditures are between 20,000 to 60,000 per day! Maybe the Ukrainians will have better luck getting some NATO bullets. They need hundreds of millions of missing rounds.

The Ukrainians don’t have a name for their much-ballyhooed spring offensive yet. But the Kiev government has stupidly announced in the last few days that it will start in May. There goes any surprise attack. Why in the world are they telling their enemies and the world this? I have a name for the Ukrainian offensive, OBS: Operation Banzai Suicide—I call it “Oh BS!”

I will say this, the most dangerous chapter of this war begins now down the next six months. It will see the collapse of the Ukrainian armed forces, probably a coup taking out Zelensky or a complete government collapse in the late spring. I know, President Xi of China will be visiting Moscow next week and there’s talk of a TV link between him and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to offer a negotiated settlement of this war. I hear talk that any agreement will have baked in it all the Ukrainian oblasts that Russia occupies forever remaining Russian, that Kiev can never join NATO, although joining the EU would be OK. There will be a further demilitarized buffer zone of 150 kilometers that will keep soldiers and weapons of either side outside of it.

The offer is sincere, Putin is sincerely involved, as ever, looking for a peaceful solution (more of that detailed in the articles below). I see this diplomatic mission as Kiev’s last chance to get real about negotiations and drop this silliness of saying crap like, “We’ll talk only when you Russians give us back all of our land including Crimea.” If they take a negotiated solution, Ukraine may keep its access to the sea and Odessa. I would hope the Ukrainian government takes this offer. It comes in the breath before the great Russian plunge into full-scale offensives not seen since the Second World War.

If this last chance for peace fails, then by May 2023 we will be deep into what I’ve been long foreseeing since 2021 as a “Ukrainian Missile Crisis” moment. It will rival anything that happened in the Cuban Missile Crisis. I write this on the Spring Equinox. If we’re all still breathing by the Fall Equinox in September 2023, we’ve cleared the first of three crises that could turn this conventional Third World War into a nuclear one.

The next “fronts” for crises will either find the US warring with China over Taiwan; or the US and Russia being pulled into an Israeli-US “surprise” war with Iran. (More about those scenarios in articles 4 and 7 below.

The leaders in the collective West that want to perpetuate this war unto the death of the last Ukrainian soldier, and if need be, beyond, are currently trying to start new fronts in this conventional phrase of the Third World War. Look to NATO seeking new proxies to fight and destroy entire nations to the last man in the Caucasus republic of Georgia and also along the Moldovan frontier in Transnistra, where there is a Russian garrison protecting the pro-Russian population there.

Despite these long time frame speculations, the complete collapse of Ukraine’s armed forces could be quite sudden. That’s what usually happens in long wars of attrition. All resistance of the losing party dramatically crumbles and what had been a static front becomes quite fluid with the victors advancing swiftly across great tracts of territory with no one left to resist them. I can’t help but shake the feeling I have that the Ukrainian forces in Donbass are going to break far sooner than later. Whenever it happens THAT is when things get very dangerous. THAT is when this conflict could suddenly end the “Proxy” stage with a direct clash between NATO and the Russian armed forces.

RT International reports legendary US journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner, Seymour Hersh warning of the potential of a US plan B in Ukraine. We’re talking about direct involvement of US troops citing his comments made recently in Washington DC hosted by the Committee for the Republic, a non-profit organization.

“Hersh noted that the US did stupid things during the Vietnam War and suggested that Washington could “start doing something else” in the Ukraine conflict.

“I don’t know what happens if it goes bad for Ukraine, you have all this manpower, he said, pointing out that the US has dispatched units of its 82nd and 101st elite airborne divisions close to the Ukrainian border, while “a lot of weapons and arms are coming to Europe.

“I’m told the game is going to be: this is NATO [this being NATO’s trained and armed Ukrainian armed forces], we are supporting NATO in offensive operations against the Russians, which is not going to fool the world… It’s us fighting Russia,” Hersh stressed, without disclosing his sources.

“According to Hersh, the big deal” is that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to come to an agreement with the Ukrainian government. The deal is demilitarize, and it’s going to be a no-go for us, the journalist said, adding that the Russian leader has not put in his main force yet” in the conflict.

“Summing up the Ukraine conflict, Hersh argued that “we just may be kidding ourselves what’s going on there and what the results are going to be”.

“He recalled the battle of Stalingrad during WWII, when Soviet troops suffered heavy losses but still emerged victorious. Come on. Do we really want to mix up with those guys? I don’t think so, the journalist added.”

Two US paratroop divisions up against a massive tank and artillery force with air superiority won’t last very long. The world will be watching the United States being conventionally routed in just a few days.

What then, is next?

A nuclear response to the Russian victory?

And there shall be close calls and rumors of close calls…

Moscow launched on 9 March a massive attack on Ukrainian infrastructure and missile defenses that included a spread of hypersonic Kinzhal missiles that the Ministry of Defense had claimed was in retaliation for Kiev’s terrorist attack on the Bryansk border region, inside Russia proper, early in March. Civilians there were killed by the Ukraine-based Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK) before this unit was destroyed trying to escape back to Ukraine.

The Intel Drop reported the following potentially additional target unmentioned by the Ministry of Defense:

“In western Ukraine a Russian Forces Kinzhal struck a bunker extending to 80 meters [262 feet] deep. The RF believes this bunker near Lvov was a secret NATO strategic command point used to control anti-aircraft systems. It’s still early days but the RF assumes there were up to 300 personnel in the bunker, 40 of which were high ranking foreign specialists, hence we can expect 40 body bags heading west in due course. Unconfirmed in the Nikolaevsk region the RF destroyed four senior militants, and a number of officers and planners.”

So far NATO has not commented on this attack. Most likely because if they confirmed the HQ’s existence it would mean the NATO is doing more than fighting a “proxy” war but is in country directing it. Over a year of this conflict I have heard the Russian Ministry of Defense warn NATO that if it brought long-range ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile Systems) into the theater of conflict that it would not only strike Ukrainian SBU intelligence targets, but it knew about the secret bunkers NATO itself had inside Ukraine. Perhaps this was one of them even though the ATACMS have not yet been given to the Ukrainians just yet.

Four days later, RT reports, “a nuclear-capable B-52 bomber of the US Strategic Command deliberately flew towards St. Petersburg, turning around only after reaching the range required to launch a cruise missile.”


The following day a USAF MQ-9 Reaper drone splashed down, I would say, after coming quite close to Crimea on a direct course towards the Russian naval base at Sevastopol. This was a further provocative act by NATO/US that, again comes after the purported bunker blast by the Kinjhal strike. RT reports: “The European Command, which was operating the UAV, issued a statement on Tuesday afternoon claiming the drone crashed after one of the Russian Su-27 interceptors “struck the propeller of the MQ-9” during an approach. The US military used its standard language to describe the intercept as “reckless and unprofessional” behavior by the Russians, adding the claim it was also “environmentally unsound,” as one of the Su-27s allegedly dumped fuel onto the drone “several times.

“According to the Russian Defense Ministry, interceptors were dispatched to address a drone flying without a transponder. The UAV crashed after carrying out “sharp maneuvers,” causing it to go into uncontrolled flight, lose altitude, and collide with the water surface, the Russian military said. “The Russian fighters did not use weapons, did not come into contact with the UAV, and returned safely to their home base.”

Military expert Scott Ritter, a tried and true source of mine for over 20 years, interviewed by The Russian Front on YouTube pointed out that NATO and Soviet jets in the First Cold War often practiced this maneuver having the jets “relieve themselves” (my term) on opposing jets, not only to fuel-piss the opposition off but to encourage they turn back from whence they came. That explains the woke Pentagon moment protesting about this environmentally unsound act. I mean, this is the Pentagon. It runs the most environmentally unsound military, ecologically polluting force on the planet.

Ritter, however, believes there was not collision of a Su-27 with the Reaper drone. The film from the drone is in slow motion because these jets would have made not “several” but 15 maneuvers very fast past the slow-poking around US spy drone. At that speed a spray of jet fuel hitting a lightweight drone propeller could bend it, so says Ritter, causing the resulting crash. For my part, I watched the film many times and checked the location map. The clouds in the background hover over what is clearly the distant Crimean Peninsula in visible sight. The US drone was probably still beyond the 12-mile international limit, but certainly it was there to provoke an incident. As Ritter says, though the drone’s transponder was switched off Russian radar would have long ago discovered it, a signal would prompt every Russian officer with a cellphone to cease all conversations and put the phone in a radar proof bag.

So the tit for tat in this infernal game of “Chicken” goes like this: 1) a Kinjhal finally takes out a major bunker full of most likely US and other NATO officers, as many as 40 senior specialists; 2) a few days later a B-52 flies right down the middle of the narrowing waters between Finland and the Baltic States heading straight for St. Petersburg up to cruise missile launching range—nuclear or conventionally tipped, unknown—then turns away. A day after that an MQ-9 Reaper drone heading for Sevastopol gets fuel pissed-on 15 times and just keeps going rather than getting the hint and turning back for a home base deep in Romania. Looks like someone in the US military command wanted an incident, wanted a drone pissed on until it crashed in the Black Sea. I found out that the drone operator probably wiped all the computers in the drone as it began its fall out of the sky, so no electronic secrets would be had if the Russians recovered it, which apparently the Russians did recover the remains, reported on 19 March.

Gonzalo Lira posted on Twitter US Senator Lindsay Graham’s militant reaction to the splashing of the drone. Senator Graham is a man that can more than once say with a straight face, with those vapory bedroom eyes unmoving, that the war should go on until the last Ukrainian dies—classic bully wimp stuff from a man who never served in the military. Well, he said an ear-full about how the US should retaliate, hoping to escalate this incident to a shooting war between Russian and US pilots (see video).

I left a tweet at Lira’s Twitter account on 15 March which read, “Graham’s senility is more cleverly masked by his life-long insanity.”

Let’s get Judicially Astrological and read the world’s aspects. I had this interaction on 15 March about the astrology of March launching the directions of events into spring with long friend and good Covid-19 investigator, Helena Row:

What is going down now is important with Mars presently conjunct the Galactic Axis. Events of World consequence.

Not only with Mars for a few weeks but Saturn has already begun its transit of Pisces and Pluto will be entering Aquarius for a time. And that’s all happening this month of March. And what has happened already? (see all that I’ve written above in this opening, introductory article.)

Astrologically, Pluto will be shortly conjunct 1 degree Aquarius where we had the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction during the Winter Solstice 2020. Lockdowns were in effect then. I would think that Pluto’s placement there will reveal matters that were going on behind the scenes at the time of the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction of Dec 21, 2020.

Thanks for the further astrological insights. There could be a Karmic Eco return going on with Mars (new engagements) passing over where the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction had been at Inauguration Day 20 January 2021 (Jupiter 7, Saturn 3 degrees). I reported on the “birth chart” of Biden’s first term in office before he was elected. What a grave disaster he would be for America’s and the world’s future. The astrology was “biblical.” A reckoning for the USA. An end to its hegemonic power, a greatest Depression, a tragedy that would see Biden not finish his term and ultimately, Biden’s very dangerous astrological aspects that ensured that if Trump had been the first president in a long string, that “did not” get America into a war (which he didn’t), Biden had the malefic stars to get us definitely into a new war during his first term that could be a world war! (For further information, read John Hogue’s 2020 Presidential Predictions.)

Actually, Pluto in this first dip into Aquarius (25 March through 12 June 2023) remains in 0 degrees not 1 degree. Still, it is well within a 3-degree powerful orb of influence even if it is in a less influential 7-degree orb, but what is important is that it “magnifies” Karma’s echo (Saturn) to achieve what, and to whom, the US presidency of Biden was destined to disastrously do. The consequences of the Covid “and” the birth of this Biden Administration are intertwined here for a comeuppance window, 25 March through 12 June 2023. A very dangerous window for the future of the world, full of shutdown attempts to stifle freedom of speech and financial independence, suppressions attempted on mass protests in the US and especially Europe. Economic depression in Europe by late spring, in the US by the fall. Perhaps a nuclear explosion or two?

To end this opening article I saved the biggest Karmic comeuppance for Biden’s administration, for last. It is one of the most significant historical axis shifts since the United States became Unipolar master of the world, but now, under these astrological aspects we mentioned, it is on a fast track to end its hegemonic era.

I end this “Introduction” to this most epic eMagazine yet with a comment about what happened on Friday 10 March 2023. This is my answer to a blog by Jazz Shaw. I’m responding to his opening overview published on his Hot Air blog, entitled, Saudi Arabia joins the new Axis of Evil.

Xi-JinpingLooking lower leftMr. Shaw opened by writing, “The biggest story breaking on Friday was clearly the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and the existential threat that may pose to America’s economy and possibly the global marketplace as well. But as the New York Post pointed out yesterday, the downfall of SVB may not carry the same long-term impact as another story that received far less attention. Friday was also the day that Saudi Arabia

announced that it has restored its diplomatic ties with Iran. Making the announcement even more worrying is the fact that the deal was brokered by China. The possible upside to the story is that such an agreement may mark an end to (or at least a significant decrease in) the ongoing proxy war that the two nations have been fighting in Yemen. The obvious downside is that the Saudis will be pulled more closely into the Axis of Evil that has grown around China and Russia.”

I will comment in articles below about the SVB bank implosion. I agree with Mr. Shaw that the New York Post had overlooked a far more significant event happening on Friday 10 March 2023 concerning China’s diplomatic breakthrough. I’m going to analyze this with an overview that transcends any side’s nationalism or partisan finger pointing about who is calling who an Axis of Evil. The Chinese-brokered détente between Iran and Saudi Arabia is perhaps the most long reaching and significant development of the last 12 months in geopolitics and I’m certain it will not be the last earthshaker moment coming to 2023. This most significant diplomatic moves in history will completely change the world as we have known it, and rapidly too.

Friday 10 March 2023 marked the beginning of the “Chinese Century.” The Chinese just made a “world power” move and not with war but brought “peace” through negotiation.

The world outside of the collective West is watching. Two thirds of the world see this move as hopeful.

American policies of sanctions, weaponizing the world reserve currency US dollar, of not backing the JCPOA agreement with Iran and honoring it, is now paying the karmic price.

Like I’ve been saying for decades, the axis shift away from US hegemony is going to be very rapid. Even my very best sources, such as Alex Christoforou and Alexander Mercouris of The Duran, couldn’t believe that this change would come so fast.

Personally, I had my doubts, but when my “Oracle” inside “speaks” I respect it because of its track record down most of my life.

What happened on Friday 10 March 2023 marks the beginning of the end of the war in Yemen.

It marks the beginning of detente in the Persian Gulf region.

It may very well end the danger of a war in the Persian Gulf, the potential of which I have even written books about and commented on since 2006.

It marks the beginning of the end of the Syrian Civil War.

The Chinese negotiation breakthrough comes in tandem with Iran’s major agreement last week with Russia to upgrade its aerospace and air forces with top-of-the-line Russian fighter jets to replace its “ancient” American jets from the late seventies as well as protect Iran from Israeli attack by Iran buying the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft and missile battery system.

Not only America but Israel has taken a strategic kick in the shorts, and frankly the following is not undeserved given the perpetual war and weakening both countries have long undertaken to impoverish and even destroy entire countries in the region, responsible for the deaths of millions—rather than negotiate peace with them, like China just did.

I’m mean imagine it. The Saudis and Iranians! Arabs and Persians in concord! Seeking mutually profitable co-existence in saving lives and property, in keeping the Strait of Hormuz from being the cause of an economic crash of the oil industry with war being fought there.

This agreement spreads stability across the Middle East as it isolates the Zionist Supremacists and puts a big monkey wrench in their plans to be allied with the Saudi Arabia so they can fly over its airspace and wage a war with Iran. This Chinese move of diplomacy has actually saved tens of thousands if not millions of Israeli lives.

As I predicted it eventually would do, China has stepped up and taken its role as the new leading power in the world. And frankly they did it with class. They did it by not destroying nations to “save” or dominate them.

They have significantly lowered the danger of the Middle East becoming the prophetic flash point of World War III.

The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia several weeks ago speaking to the Arab League members in Riyadh, told them that as Europe crumbles the Middle East now will become “The New Europe.”

Another important result of this Saudi-Iranian detente agreement is that now THREE of the biggest oil producers, Russia, Arabia and Iran, are now going to join the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) and this year Saudi Arabia and Iran will be fast-tracked into the BRICS alliance, the Global South and Eurasian nations’ answer to the G20, the G7, and the IMF. Saudi Arabian and Iranian oil will now combine with Russia’s as the oil commodity base to establish a new global reserve currency back by three times more oil than the US reserve dollar had been.

Bye bye US dollars, US “bucks.”

Hello, BRICKS “buck.”

Brace for it America, what happened Friday will rapidly collapse two thirds of the world using US dollars.

The last standing superpower of the last Cold War is going to experience what happened to the Soviet Union when it collapsed from being a hegemon.

People in leadership in the United States need to drop the jargon of that earlier cold war. They need to stop living back in 1990 and wake up to 2023 realities. This drop from being a superpower in the long-term will be a blessing for the American people.

We will be free of the burden of hegemony which is utterly threatening and even destroying our American civilization and democracy. Britain in the end dropped its empire to preserve its democracy. America has so far sustained its empire at the cost of losing its democracy. The US dollar’s drop from global reserve currency, though economically hard, may see American democracy rise again. America will still play a major economic and geopolitical part in the world but the torch of leading the world has been passed since last Friday, for better and worse, to China with most of the world celebrating this change.

No, it’s not a nuke. It is Russian ammunition depot hit by a US HIMARS long-range missile, fired by Ukraine, aimed by the US.

The most dangerous government on earth right now is in Washington. And if it tries to hold on to what it has lost, if it denies that America’s time as the leading power, like other great powers, Britain, France, etc., is passing to another country, then if there is a Third World War that destroys humanity, it will be America’s responsibility that it happened.

The next two months are critically dangerous. The Iran-Saudi detente will formally begin in two months to reestablish diplomatic relations with each other and open embassies in Tehran and Riyadh. If idiocy in Washington and Jerusalem has its way, this might be the moment the US and Israel move militarily on Iran. At the same time, as my articles in this new eMagazine will detail, the next two months—mid-March to mid-May 2023—may witness the collapse of Ukrainian forces in the Donbass eastern front of the NATO proxy war with Russia. Perhaps by April, certainly by May when the land is now dry and firm, the long-awaited Ukrainian Offensive will be a Ukrainian massacre and rout, promptly chased by a massive Russian offensive.

Alternatively, China in the next two months is also trying to negotiate as go-between in a peaceful solution to the Ukrainian war.

It is time for Americans holding power in our government to see the writing of Destiny on the wall and adapt this country to the REALITY, not the PROJECTIONS of “evil empire” doing this and that. Our time at the helm is over. But our great influence in the world will still be there, not as THE leader but an influential brother among brother and sister nations.

I mean it comes down to this. When America comes to a Global South country, it built military alliances and build military bases. When China comes to the same region, it builds infrastructure, hospitals, bullet trains. It doesn’t destroy a country to save it and the Chinese are outdoing the US Marshal Plan on a global level. We will see how that develops. It has for now started on the right foot walking. It is not sanctioning and killing nations, it is helping them build and live better to everyone’s mutual benefit and profit.

I think the people in Washington in power who call Russia and China some Axis of Evil should take a look at evil reflected in the mirror back at them. Where they are ever fomenting war and chaos, the Chinese seek mutual relationships with nations of peace, prosperity and stability.

The world stayed with us because there was nobody else to do business and statecraft with as an equal world power.

Now there is.

The world has two choices.

Most of Humanity is moving with the East because, frankly, now our geopolitical and sanctioning “evils” had no counterbalance.

Now it does.

DATELINE: 14 February 2023


Suppressed by the Mainstream Media
This Story has Lit a Slow-burning Fuse to a Truth Bomb that Could Change Everything

Don’t look over there. Look up at the Chinese balloon. No, the Chinese spy balloon! That’s what it is.

You ask, “Why I have this boiling water picture starting the article?”

I take your attention away to something else. I give you the government/press propaganda line: “Hey! Do you know that NORAD has shot down three unidentified flying objects, UFOs, along the northern Alaskan Coast, over the Canadian Yukon and a few other places maybe, like Lake Huron? One UFO was hexagonal in shape. The other was the size of a small car.”

And you might ask, “But what about that Ohio chemical explosion detonated by the US government…???”

And I, straightforward, change the subject again talking about Biden’s press conference followed by the Pentagon press secretary saying stuff in an official communique that would get you fired and put into a straitjacket in decades past. He’s talking about aliens, maybe, shot down by the USAF. He isn’t even speaking off the cuff about it; John Kirby the Pentagon spokesperson is reading—rather remedially like ‘See Jane run. Run! Jane! Run!’—a prepared statement about the potential, that the Pentagon cannot rule out that UFOs from outer space were shot down.

Doesn’t that get your attention? Doesn’t that cause a panic, manipulated by the US government?

You’re not going to hear Kermit-Kirby the Pentagon frog stop talking about how it’s not easy being green little men, or the press corps putting him on the spot. They backtracked the movements of the jet stream where the unidentified flying objects were shot down to a few days earlier. Looks like they were launched from around Anchorage, Alaska.

In short, drop your Yew-EFFin’-Oh story Mr. Pentagon spokesman, I mean wokes-man. Your harmless “car-like” UFOs are US-of-A weather balloons. Your Pentagon has been shooting down floating remote weather stations, dude, officer Kirby, whatever your name is standing at the podium in your blue US Air Force uniform with all that fruit salad of medals hinting at some achievement of intelligence, once upon a time, “somewhere over the brain-bow, way up high.” Instead, dude, you’re talking like Dorothy, in the Wizard of Oz and you’re not in Kansas anymore!

The meteorological department at the University of Alaska has a contract with the US government to launch devices and weather balloons that catch the Arctic Jetstream from Anchorage floating north-northeast over the Arctic Circle. These “UFOs” measure the winds at high altitudes for commercial jets and US air forces. That is what was being shot down, folks! (See Seymour Hersh explain this in his recent interview with Russell Brand, at minute 6:35 – 9:43, and how the pilot flying the F-22 shooting it down really did put a first kill decal of a weather balloon on the plane. And I would add from what I see as the pictures, it looks like the news agencies photoshopped the decal off of it. Hersh said it really was stuck there, but the Yahoos at and AP would rather spend time debating about whether that was fake news or not, than even touch the Nord Stream revelations of Seymour Hersh, published on 8 February 2023, that he United States blew up those pipelines back on 26 September 2022!


We caught Kirby playing his part, trying to stir up a panic of the Earth being invaded, by who knows what, Marians perhaps? or the Nav’is space navies from Alpha Centauri? When in fact that blue suit he’s wearing with silver wings over his wits makes him a representative of that glorious and glitchy, trillion-dollar M.I.C.-All-American money “cock”-pit and winged failure of an all-purpose jet fighter, rolling off the assembly line at $200 million dollars apiece. We’re talking about the Lockheed-Martin Advanced Tactical Fighter, F-22 Raptor celebrating its first “combat” kill of any Raptors I’ve heard of. It was one of the few F-22s out of this trillion-dollar program of mostly grounded planes to shoot something, anything down. The first kill is a “UFO” USA weather balloon that probably costs several hundred dollars. The missile fired, that alone I believe is a six-figured weapon of around $150,000 dollars or more.

Why all the arm flapping and flummoxing about UFO flaps going on for a week or more after Hersh published his article on 8 February?

I’ll tell you why. Regard the cover photo (above) of this article that no major news network displayed and mentioned, not even Fox, except one brief spot on Tucker Carlson’s nightly show.

That’s why.

No UFO here but rather a very identifiable fact-finding journalist named Seymour Hersh thanks to his objective reporting about who really blew up the Nord Stream Pipelines in late September of last year. It was a state sanctioned terrorist attack and manmade ecological disaster not only on an enemy, Russia, who built it and owned a 51 percent share. The other owners were NATO allies, Germany, the Netherlands, and a non-NATO neutral Austria, no less! And now thanks to Hersh, we know who started planning this secret terror attack BEFORE they got themselves into fighting a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine.

There was a gang of four of them: American President Joe Biden was passionate about going through with it. So was his chief NSA advisor Jake Sullivan, the US Secretary of State Anthony “blinkey” Blinken and his ugly lady troll Deputy Secretary of State who works under him, but she’s the real brains behind these vacuous three beaus, Victoria Nuland.

Hersh jokingly calls three of the four, Joe “Winkin’, Blinken, and Nod”-ding Nuland after American poet and writer Eugene Field’s popular poem/song for kids, published on 9 March 1889 under the original title Dutch Lullaby. (Sorry Sully, you’re the even man out, although you are the lanky-gangly, pasty-pale look-alike for Ichabod Crane from Washington Irving’s short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a possible victim of the pumpkin-headed, Headless Horseman.)

The president and his administration that boasts of being pro-green ecological, well they willfully committed an ecological disaster, releasing over a 700-mile pipe full of natural gas, spewing one of the largest man-made methane plumes into the atmosphere to help heat up global warming just a tad. Move over, Saddam Hussein, lighting up Kuwait’s oil fields. The Green US president is ecologically meaner than even you. More than the temperature of the atmosphere has been warmed up, maybe Biden has found a very dramatic way to end global warming. If push comes to shoving ICBMs into launch silos, you end global warming with a Nuclear Winter coming from the fire smoke of burning cities in a nuclear war blotting out the sun for a few years. I mean the pipe-blast is, as you’ll see the CIA advisors telling this gang of four, an act of war, but I’d add not just against Russia, but an act of war against, friends, like Germany, Netherlands and Austria!

The Europeans leaders, like Angela Merkel chancellor of Germany had long lobbied a reluctant Russian government to build first Nord Stream 1 then 2 and give Germany a bountiful source of cheap natural gas to itself and to Europe, keeping the German heart of its industries and economy competitive and rich.

Thanks to America, thanks to Uncle Joe, Germany and thus the EU at large, faces de-industrialization in Joe’s gangster move to make “an offer” the German Chancellor can’t refuse.

“We blow up your source of cheap natural gas to keep you safe and sound in our gangsta territory and we offer you our American LNG (liquid natural gas). Yes, it is four times more expensive, but fuhgeddaboudit! Things happen. Your US Godfather’s protection can be…expensive. Worse things could have happened to you if we weren’t your “protectors,” right? Yeah, we’re rollin’ in EU dough from it to we keep your German homies “down.” We keep our Ameri-gangsta presence in your territory and we keep the Russian gangstas you might join out of our territory, capeesh?”


Twenty weeks before 8 February 2023, a chance scheduling of my appearance on Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory the late evening of the day the pipelines were sabotaged speaking to a North American radio audience of millions. It was also broadcast across the Caribbean, Armed Forces Radio “and” all over the world on Internet. Just as the show began, I declared the United States was responsible for the terror bombing of the Nord Stream pipelines, the most significant act of terrorism since the US itself was attacked on 11 September 2001.

I made it clear that the world would find out that the government of the United States, specifically the Biden Administration, had willfully sabotaged the pipelines. I reiterated once again that this Ukrainian proxy war is not just a war against Russia it is a war against Germany too. It is the United States’ way of keeping the adage about controlling Europe: “To keep American in” Europe. “To keep Germany down” in Europe “and to keep the Russians OUT of Europe!”

I told people on one of the most widely listened-to radio shows in the world that this bombing had happened the day after over 100,000 German citizens in Berlin chanted to turn the Russian gas back on to light and heat their homes and light and run their economy.

The day after, the United States blew up the pipelines an insane act of American terrorism against its own ally. Twenty weeks later, on 8 February, my subjective prediction has been objectifiably proven correct by none-other than one who could be called the greatest investigative reporter still standing, the very youthful-for-his-age Seymour Hersh. He’s a bit long in the tooth in his mid-eighties but sharp as a tack and sitting upon a remarkable legacy of exposés that changed history often for the better. In 1970 he won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the cover-up of the My-Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War. He covered the Watergate scandal for the New York Times. He exposed the brutality of US troops torturing Iraqi civilians, names named, photos taken, at Abu Ghraib prison during the US occupation of Iraq.

I quoted from Hersh extensively in my second of three books planned on the theme of Donald Trump entitled Trump Strikes Syria, and North Korea? Hersh revealed why President Obama did not go into a full-scale war destroying what was left standing of Syria in late September 2013. Thanks to Hersh the world found out what Obama had been informed just before pushing the war button, that the gassing of thousands of people in an eastern suburb of Damascus called al-Ghouta was a false-flagged attack by Islamic extremists trying to pin the atrocity on the Syrian government. The Syrian government had not fired upon innocent civilians. The Jihadists had let loose shorter-range missiles impossible to have been fired by the Syrian Army. They fell upon the people the terrorists had occupied, hoping the injury and death of thousands would drag the blundering US behemoth shooting first and asking questions later to eradicate, or better “Iraq-qid-cate,” what was left of Syria.

Hersh used Dr. Theodore Postol in the al-Ghouta story and again for the Nord Stream pipeline. He is a crack forensic investigator on the use of explosives and a professor emeritus of science, technology, and national security policy at MIT. Dr. Postol is one of the best detectives of terrorist sabotage and false flags out there.

According to Hersh’s sources, this gang of four at the top of US leadership started working out a plan for their act of international terrorism, in this following excerpt posted on his Substack page in the following steps:

In December of 2021, two months before the first Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine, Jake Sullivan convened a meeting of a newly formed task force—men and women from the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the CIA, and the State and Treasury Departments—and asked for recommendations about how to respond to Putin’s impending invasion.

It would be the first of a series of top-secret meetings, in a secure room on a top floor of the Old Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House, that was also the home of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB). There was the usual back and forth chatter that eventually led to a crucial preliminary question: Would the recommendation forwarded by the group to the President be reversible—such as another layer of sanctions and currency restrictions—or irreversible—that is, kinetic actions, which could not be undone?

What became clear to participants, according to the source with direct knowledge of the process, is that Sullivan intended for the group to come up with a plan for the destruction of the two Nord Stream pipelines—and that he was delivering on the desires of the President.

Over the next several meetings, the participants debated options for an attack. 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. “This is not kiddie stuff,” the source said. If the attack were traceable to the United States, “It’s an act of war.”

At the time, the CIA was directed by William Burns, a mild-mannered former ambassador to Russia who had served as deputy secretary of state in the Obama Administration. Burns quickly authorized an Agency working group whose ad hoc members included—by chance—someone who was familiar with the capabilities of the Navy’s deep-sea divers in Panama City. 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 then noted the discussion of something similar was achieved by the CIA and the Navy in an operation codenamed Ivy Bells, where for years a remote Soviet telecommunications sea cable had been tapped in some remote corner of the Sea of Okhotsk off eastern Siberia, but he then added, “Still, the interagency group was initially skeptical of the CIA’s enthusiasm for a covert deep-sea attack. There were too many unanswered questions. The waters of the Baltic Sea were heavily patrolled by the Russian navy, and there were no oil rigs that could be used as cover for a diving operation. Would the divers have to go to Estonia, right across the border from Russia’s natural gas loading docks, to train for the mission? ‘It would be a goat fuck,’ the Agency was told.

Hersh wrote, “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.’”

The next important step was to get around the US Constitution’s obligations of the Executive Branch. They would scheme a way out by using the Navy diver trainers at Panama Florida as their loophole, or so this gang of Biden, Blinken, Sullivan and Nuland thought, to keep this sabotage completely secret from US Congress. They thought that by using the teachers and not the “taught” serving in active special forces duty they would not have to inform the US congressional committees involved in a planned covert action.

Then on 7 February “less than three weeks before the seemingly inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine,” wrote Hersh, “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, continued Hersh, “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.”

Biden and before him Nuland implied indirectly about putting an end to Nord Stream’s function. It seems that this gang of four thought it gave them plausible deniability perhaps. Or was this their way to make indirectly open, their intention to “end” Nord Stream, thus making this action an open threat, albeit if vaguely implied, that would see them over the hurdle of having to inform congress of what “was not” a covert act.

This is how Hersh’s source explained it:

Several of those involved in planning the pipeline mission were dismayed by what they viewed as indirect references to the attack.

“It was like putting an atomic bomb on the ground in Tokyo and telling the Japanese that we are going to detonate it,” the source said. “The plan was for the options to be executed post invasion and not advertised publicly. Biden simply didn’t get it or ignored it.”

Biden’s and Nuland’s indiscretion, if that is what it was, might have frustrated some of the planners. But it also created an opportunity. According to the source, some of the senior officials of the CIA determined that blowing up the pipeline “no longer could be considered a covert option because the President just announced that we knew how to do it.”

The plan to blow up Nord Stream 1 and 2 was suddenly downgraded from a covert operation requiring that Congress be informed to one that was deemed as a highly classified intelligence operation with U.S. military support. Under the law, the source explained, “There was no longer a legal requirement to report the operation to Congress. All they had to do now is just do it—but it still had to be secret. The Russians have superlative surveillance of the Baltic Sea.”

The Agency working group members had no direct contact with the White House, and were eager to find out if the President meant what he’d said—that is, if the mission was now a go. The source recalled, “Bill Burns comes back and says, ‘Do it.’”

So it became a “no covert” go, from Biden and his gang of handlers.

The Panama City, Florida, diving instructors would base themselves in Norway for the operation to take place picked by the Norwegian special forces divers as a spot where the two pipeline pass close to Bornholm Island of Denmark at 260 feet below the surface.

The Norwegians joined the Americans in insisting that some senior officials in Denmark and Sweden had to be briefed in general terms about possible diving activity in the area. In that way, someone higher up could intervene and keep a report out of the chain of command, thus insulating the pipeline operation. “What they were told and what they knew were purposely different,” the source told me. (The Norwegian embassy, asked to comment on this story, did not respond.)

The Norwegians were key to solving other hurdles. The Russian navy was known to possess surveillance technology capable of spotting, and triggering, underwater mines. The American explosive devices needed to be camouflaged in a way that would make them appear to the Russian system as part of the natural background—something that required adapting to the specific salinity of the water. The Norwegians had a fix.

The Norwegians also had a solution to the crucial question of when the operation should take place. Every June, for the past 21 years, the American Sixth Fleet, whose flagship is based in Gaeta, Italy, south of Rome, has sponsored a major NATO exercise in the Baltic Sea involving scores of allied ships throughout the region. The current exercise, held in June, would be known as Baltic Operations 22, or BALTOPS 22. The Norwegians proposed this would be the ideal cover to plant the mines.

The Americans provided one vital element: they convinced the Sixth Fleet planners to add a research and development exercise to the program. The exercise, as made public by the Navy, involved the Sixth Fleet in collaboration with the Navy’s “research and warfare centers.” The at-sea event would be held off the coast of Bornholm Island and involve NATO teams of divers planting mines, with competing teams using the latest underwater technology to find and destroy them.

It was both a useful exercise and ingenious cover. The Panama City boys would do their thing and the C4 explosives would be in place by the end of BALTOPS22, with a 48-hour timer attached. All of the Americans and Norwegians would be long gone by the first explosion.

The days were counting down. “The clock was ticking, and we were nearing mission accomplished,” the source said.

The gang of four had “second thoughts” about the plan to place 48-hour timers on the attached bombs to set them off two days after BALTOPS22 was finished. That was too close. Too obvious. The “Panama City boys” in Norway came up with a solution:

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. (“You want a signal that is robust enough so that no other signal could accidentally send a pulse that detonated the explosives,” I was told by Dr. Theodore Postol, professor emeritus of science, technology and national security policy at MIT. Postol, who has served as the science adviser to the Pentagon’s Chief of Naval Operations, said the issue facing the group in Norway because of Biden’s delay was one of chance: “The longer the explosives are in the water the greater risk there would be of a random signal that would launch the bombs.”)

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.

The mainstream media just called it an “unsolved mystery” and then did next to nothing to “solve” it. At first and for no logical reason they just blurted out collectively that the evil Putin must have blown up his own pipeline, his most important leverage tool to get Europe back on his side with the cheap natural gas that he could have just switched off at its entry points into the Baltic Sea up in Russia. There was no need to destroy a project that Russian put hundreds of millions to create. Moreover, show me any quotes of Putin before the war, during the war and up to 26 September (CEST time, 27 September US Pacific Time when I was on Coast) that would hint so openly like Nuland and Biden did that he would end his own pipeline’s function?

Such public statements don’t exist.

Hersh also quoted Blinken’s pathetic “look at the bright side” speech like I had quoted in earlier eMagazines where I found him grinning almost like Alfred E. Newman, the homely kid and mascot of the Mad Magazines, “what me worry?”

Blinken with buck-toothed simplism said now that someone sabotaged the pipelines provided “a tremendous opportunity to once and for all remove the dependence on Russian energy and thus to take away from Vladimir Putin the weaponization of energy as a means of advancing his imperial designs. That’s very significant and that offers tremendous strategic opportunity for the years to come, but meanwhile we’re determined to do everything we possibly can to make sure the consequences of all of this are not borne by citizens in our countries or, for that matter, around the world.”

Yeah, Anthony, you blinking-Blinken goof. The US can now charge the Germans four times more expensive LNG gas as replacement to the cheap Russian natural gas, ending the German economy’s competition edge. Thus the dynamo that runs the EU de-industrializes Europe now should believe the destroyed pipelines are a “great opportunity”?

YEAH! A great opportunity to end its comfy civilization, its affluence, paid vacations, social net programs, clean cities, affordable transportation and the best health care choices on Earth. They’ll have a great opportunity to go backwards into political and economic instability, you blinking-Blinken bucktoothed dufus.

Hersh asked his source for this story why the Russians didn’t respond with some counter sabotage act. For certainly what the Americans did was change the rules. By America making an international pipeline a target, built in part by their own allies, made all pipelines, even telecommunication sea cables that keep the world interconnected, fair game for state terror attacks. I mean, who cares about al-Qaeda, the United States of America just became the premier state terrorist on Earth!

Hersh’s source answered his question by cynically musing, “Maybe they want the capability to do the same things the U.S. did.

“It was a beautiful cover story,” he went on. “Behind it was a covert operation that placed experts in the field and equipment that operated on a covert signal.

“The only flaw was the decision to do it.”

Now comes the karma. It sizzles in a slow fuse that this sabotage has lit. The fuse was already quietly hissing when only middle or underling spokespersons for the US president, NSA and State stepped up to the podium to label Seymour Hersh’s article a “complete fiction.” Why are underlings stepping up? If it is a fiction, why not step-up Mr. President and solemnly swear it is a fiction? Why not you, Mr. Sullivan, or you Mr. Blinken or you Ms. Nuland? Step up with spirit, unafraid of any Federal prosecution if it is impossible to prove that all four of you are lying?

You’re silence of liars is deafening.

I forecast the following for 2023: the economy collapses in Europe and people are on the streets. The people of the collective West, your small corner of the world is under a propaganda news bubble. When you read Hersh’s article, and further articles to be posted by him this year, you’ll be hearing shocking tales that two thirds of the rest of the news outlets outside of the collective West have already posted. The people in Russia, in China and India, across South America, Africa and the rest of the Global South are already marveling at it, but with little surprise. Outside of the West, the rest of the world knows well the treachery of American hegemony. The ostriches of the West will finally have their heads pulled out from the sand when recession, then depression comes to them later this year. Biden and his government will then be targeted as scapegoats for the “goat fuck” of Nord Stream, while there’s a proxy war gone catastrophic in Ukraine with NATO and President Biden through all of that willfully keeps draining itself of its weapons thrown into that sinkhole while he goes on draining the US strategic oil reserve dry. Will you then, living in the West, will rise up against such terrorist that overlord you?

The gang of goats will suffer their “penetration” by truth. Impeachments will happen. Biden will be removed (and a few more people will take a turn being president after him before 2024. See article 14 below. Perhaps even NATO may collapse, and the EU might break apart.

After this long fuse was lit, it takes some time before the world of political western elites, as we’ve known them, go BOOM!

[MAJOR UPDATE: 8 March 2023]


And now, fresh from the nearest ungulate, a pure “BS” story.

It comes hot and steaming out of the official “organ” of US Intelligence Agencies, the New York Times. The three bull-pucky, plucky reporters responsible for this “deposit” are Adam Entous, Julian E. Barnes and Adam Goldman, plopping it on 7 March. I’m sure they will win a “Pooh”-litzer prize for it. Especially because Seymour Hersh, is starting to get traction for his Nord Streaming exposé around the world. So somebody in Foggy “Bottom” had to relieve themselves of this fake story misdirect the thinking public.

It is an odd article that baits and switches its themes. I’ll try to explain it. So, if you just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale of a fateful yacht. The New York Times didn’t even know the name or how large this yacht was, but I later tracked it down. It was called the Andromeda and it was really hard to call it “a yacht” or so I found. It looked more like a tiny vacation fishing boat for a family outing.

Aboard their rented, tiny ship were a mate, a mighty sailing man, and a skipper brave and sure. In total the two of them and the rest were six passengers renting this boat for a three port stop tour, a three port stop tour.

On 6 September 2022, they sailed out of Rostock, on the Baltic German coast. They went to the little port of Wiek before they ventured out the most. The waters they sailed in the Baltic Sea, the weather did get rough and the tiny ship was tossed. And if not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Andromeda would be lost. The Andromeda would be lost!

The ship set anchor upon the shore, of a desert Danish isle (Christiansø I am told). Wherein, so the New York Times had said, it had explosives packed in the hold.

This little crew, of five guys and a girl, had planned their Nord Stream attacks. And without a time frame clearly claimed they’d sailed the Andromeda back. They left the ship and left passports too, their identities were Ukraine. German cops poured over tabletops finding traces of explosives lain.

Beyond that the NYT writers go off on a tangent from their ripping three port tour, a ripping three port tour… but before they completely lost that story, these writers told us that the Ukrainians had rented this Polish yacht using money from some Ukrainian Oligarch who had financed the trip, the dive, the big blow, and this little crew of six, five Ukrainian guys and a girl, who managed, miraculously I might add, to haul a load of explosives that could sink their littler ship. Well, if they hadn’t dumped their mines, along those gas pipelines, the Andromeda would be lost, the Andromeda would be

That’s when I gave my pet canary my copy of the New York times. I carpeted his cage with it, for his further read and to do his business.

I started looking around for a better report, any report had to be better than the NYT’s. I found a German newspaper, the Zeit writing a much more detailed account than the long-and-complicated musing of the New York Times article that mostly dwelled on “how” the Ukrainians in general were not always passing their target packages for US approval before launching, such as the Crimean Kerch bridge terror attack and the enhanced Ukrainian drones flying deep into the Russian hinterlands attempting to damage and destroy Russian nuclear strategic bombers. That was their spaghetti theory thrown on the wall to see it the idea would stick that the Ukrainians had been responsible for the blown-up pipelines.

Zeit didn’t go there. But I think they wrote their sleepy article with a wee too much Benadryl to assuage the first hard pollen allergy attack of spring.

Zeit reporters in joint research with ARD capital studio, Kontraste, and German radio SWR, said that “investigators succeeded in identifying the boat that was allegedly used for the secret operation. It is said to be a yacht rented from a company based in Poland, apparently owned by two Ukrainians. According to the investigation, the secret operation at sea was carried out by a team of six people.”

OK, sounds like basically the same facts like in the NYC.

Zeit also said they forged passports used to rent the boat. These indicate why the strike group consisted of five men and one woman. There was a captain, two divers, two diving assistants and a woman doctor. The true nationality of the perpetrators is unknown because of the false, but very professionally forged IDs.

Zeit goes on to say the little band of commandos set sail from Rostock on September 6, 2022, after a delivery truck brought their equipment for the secret operation. Now the gaggle of investigators give us the itinerary where they sailed to but gave no date when they returned the boat to its owners.

Was it days? A week?

They just tell us the boat left Rostock and snuggled into the small and secluded port of Wieck—for how long, who knows? Then they laid anchor at the very remote and rocky little Danish Island of Christiansø, northeast of Bornholm.

Zeit in German means “time.” The time is the thing these sleepy Teutonic reporters had completely lost awareness of. Christiansø is definitely the last bit of dry rock above sea level closest to the actual bombing site which is a further eight miles east-northeast from there. It is close to the upper cluster of detonations—two on Nord Stream 1, one of Nord Stream 2, but the fourth explosion is way down past Bornholm Island 18 miles south-southwest.

Then the Zeit article jumps awkwardly forward take the narrative bumping against the boat’s dock upon its return to Rostock. No mention is even made by the reporters whether they sought to know where it lowered anchor. I’m only assuming it was Rostock. They didn’t even ask the boat owners for the log time of its return. How could this whole set of German “bundes-bunglers” not give us a time frame of the days or perhaps a week the boat was hired then later returned trashed like racoons had rented it, treating it like their own floating garbage can.

Anyway, Zeit reports in turgid Teutonic cadences, “The yacht was then returned to the owner in an uncleaned condition. According to research, investigators they found traces of explosives on the table in the cabin. According to information from the ARD capital studio, Kontraste, SWR and ZEIT, a Western secret service is said to have sent a tip to European partner services in the autumn, i.e. shortly after the destruction, according to which a Ukrainian commando was responsible for the destruction. After that, there are said to have been further intelligence indications that a pro-Ukrainian group could be responsible.”

There are so many “accordings” in that paragraph that I feel like my mind’s being played in and out like an accordion. “Oooh, wump up, ooooh, wumpm UP.”

The reporters say they spoke to all the different European and US security authorities investigating who blew up the pipeline on 26 September 2022, 20 days after the yacht had pushed off from Rostock, return date unknown. However, Zeit wrote that, “Even if traces lead to Ukraine, the investigators have not yet been able to find out who commissioned the suspected group of perpetrators. In international security circles, it is not ruled out that it could also be a “false flag” operation. This means that traces could also have been deliberately laid that point to Ukraine as the culprit. However, the investigators have apparently found no evidence that confirms such a scenario.”

To conclude the articles meandering plod of a narrative, Zeit tried to contact the Ukrainian government but received no comment on the story.


This smells like a false flag to me.

I mean, I’ve got to think that the people who actually blew up the pipeline from US and Norwegian secret services wouldn’t just leave this hanging without some misdirected moves to cover what is a right-out-there, obvious US act of sabotage after the President and Victoria Nuland pretty much “foresaw” it coming and played a little self-fulfilling prophecy here. And more than me are smelling a red herring of misdirecting here.

RT reports that on 8 September that the “German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius warned against a rush to judgment amid the renewed reports into the origins of the sabotage. It may just as well have been a false-flag operation staged to blame Ukraine, an option brought up in the media reports as well, Pistorius said.

The Russian government, with its own secret services that are masters at espionage would have prompted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov to say to RT that it “suggested the Western media reports were designed to be a smokescreen. Obviously, those who have masterminded the [Nord Stream] attack want to divert attention. Obviously, this is a coordinated media hoax campaign, he told RIA Novosti.

“Peskov also renewed Russian calls for a robust, transparent investigation into the bombings.”

Both the New York Times and the Zeit “geist” have a similar theme: indirectly stick it to the Ukrainians as somehow culpable for blowing up the pipelines. A pretty pathetic story. When Seymour Hersh was told about it, he laughed his head off after reading it.

[UPDATE 22 March 2023. Seymour Hersh has released a new article called “The Cover-Up at his Substack page. He opens by making the following comment about the New York Times and Zeit stories: “It’s been six weeks since I published a report, based on anonymous sourcing, naming President Joe Biden as the official who ordered the mysterious destruction last September of Nord Stream 2, a new $11-billion pipeline that was scheduled to double the volume of natural gas delivered from Russia to Germany. The story gained traction in Germany and Western Europe, but was subject to a near media blackout in the US. Two weeks ago, after a visit by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to Washington, US and German intelligence agencies attempted to add to the blackout by feeding the New York Times and the German weekly Die Zeit false cover stories to counter the report that Biden and US operatives were responsible for the pipelines’ destruction.” Back to my 8 March Major Update:]

The story was so implausible that after it blasted onto the networks it soon sank out of sight.

The tales were quite laughable, especially after I read the following “letter” from a NATO official playing whistleblower who purportedly met the divers who blew up the pipeline and escorted them out to sea. The letter was sent via encrypted email into the hands of American journalist and expat living in Russia for nearly seven years and counting—a source I use named John Mark Dougan—4 October, just nine days after the pipelines were blown apart and bubbling great gales of methane on the surface of the Baltic Sea.

I became aware of Dougan’s receipt of this second bombshell after Hersh’s from a Twitter account with the handle Trollstoy that posted the following on 16 February.

American journalist John Dugan told RIA Novosti that he received an anonymous letter from a participant in the Baltops-22 exercise during which explosives could’ve been planted near the Nord Stream pipelines.

The letter (RIA Novosti has it) says that on June 15, a helicopter brought a group of Americans in civilian clothes, who were met by the vice admiral of the 6th US Navy and people in civilian clothes. The men arrived with professional equipment for deep-sea diving, which the ordinary military does not use. After talking to the vice admiral, they took some crates on a rubber boat out to sea and dove for more than six hours. They came back without the crates, and then a helicopter took them away.

— RIA Novosti

Dougan read out the letter on YouTube on 4 October 2022, see YouTube John Mark Dugin. Here’s a transcript of what he said:

Yesterday I got a message from Signal asking for an email account—a secure email account—that I’ve never used before. I made one, I sent one back. And today, in the morning when I woke up, I had this little message in my Inbox. It was a message and a couple of photographs. Now I can’t show you the photographs. I plan to show them to Thomas Roper. [Roper is a very good German journalist and war correspondent, one of the few Westerners like Patrick Lancaster and Graham Philips who has reported Ukraine war on the Donbass for many years. Back to Dougan:] He’s a bit busy today but he’s going to join me. But I’m going to show them to him. So, I’m going to read you this letter. It’s quite interesting.


Dear Mr. Dougan,

I write this letter and hope that you might share it. I cannot share the information myself because it will be detrimental to my career and my life. I’m sending you this photo that’s proof that I was there as well as a copy of my identification, which you may share this with one other journalist that you trust, but not to leave your procession. It is vital that you do not share this with anyone else. You never use this email account again. You may read this letter verbatim, as it is written.

DOUGAN: OK, so here, this is the letter “as it is written:”

THE LETTER: I had a leading administration role in the June BALTOPS-22 military exercises near Bornholm Island, Denmark. I can’t give you my exact title. Because it will allow my identity to be revealed.

DOUGAN: Of course, I know his identity and I know what his title was, but I can’t for the sake of the person in this letter. I’m making that clear to you.

THE LETTER: There are some unusual details involving a group of US Navy sailors from Naval Strike and Support forces NATO or STRIKE-for-NATO, who had arrived from Stockholm. While it seemed strange at the time, in retrospect, now things look outright nefarious.

Let me explain.

Forgive me in advance if I get any of the terminology wrong. The military of my country may use different words. I can’t be specific in my job but I work coordination for dive teams… Uh…

DOUGAN: The English isn’t perfect, so excuse me.

THE LETTER: I work coordination for dive teams for underwater missions for various militaries in the NATO Alliance.

On June 15th, the day of one particular exercise, I was working, coordinating certain aspects of the exercise. I must be vague in this.

A US helicopter arrived carrying a group of men who were supposed to be US Navy anti-mine personnel. They exited, unloaded their gear, and met with both the US Navy Vice Admiral and a group of American men in plain clothes that had arrived a few hours earlier. We all suspected them to be some kind of intelligence officers.

After a short conversation that I could not hear because of the sound of the helicopters, they approached their briefing. I found it rather strange that they were from the US Navy. My first thought was that they looked like a group of terrorists—not anyone from the US Navy.

The other groups we had from many of the military branches had some sort of standards. Haircuts for example. Not only did these men have wild hair that would have breached any civilized nation’s code of military standers, but they had facial hair as well. As I said, they looked more like Middle Eastern terrorists.

None of these men wore identification tags around their necks. The other thing I found odd was that they claimed to be there to search for underwater mines. However, they lacked the equipment for such an exercise. The equipment consisted of the latest Navy issue deep diving underwater rebreathers and some small, hard case boxes, we call them “Pelicans.”

Their job was to take a rubber boat to a predetermined location, search for anti-ship mines and return to shore with their findings. Usually in such an endeavor, they have long metal detection equipment, but that was absent from their collection of equipment gear. [HOGUE: maybe he means long-range metal detection gear?]

A detail that I thought very stranger here was that while the other mine EOD teams wore traditional scuba gear with tanks and such, this group was wearing state-of-the-art helium rebreather helmets and dive suits. Though I’ve never seen one up close, I’m quite certain that these were the MK-29 System, made for deep dives, and to this day, remain classified.

My country’s military wouldn’t even be able to afford the helium for these, let alone the suits themselves. The suits certainly would not be required for locating mines that sit in just a few meters below the surface.

They took their boats offshore, not to the area where the simulated mines were placed but to an entirely different location. My colleague who was monitoring different team locations made an offhand joke about how the US Navy had gotten lost and was 2,000 meters from their target location.

They excited their boat wearing their rebreathers and they disappeared under the water for over six hours. There is no self-contained underwater gear that I know of that can keep a diver under for six hours. With the newest military systems, three or four max is possible if the diver isn’t exerting themselves.

After a few hours we began to get concerned and we contacted the coordinator for the US Sixth Fleet, which assured us that everything was fine. They were in contact. To ignore, and not to make any reports about it.

After the exercise was over, and they returned, almost all of their “Pelicans” were missing. They did not stay for any pleasantries. They had a short conversation with the civilian people from the US. Got on a waiting copter and left. The civilians they were talking to also left but on a different helicopter. Their mission was later marked as “completed successfully” even though they were never near the intended target location.

In retrospect here are my suspicions.

The diver met with the small waiting submersible that shuttled them to the area of the pipeline. The explosives required for such an act wouldn’t have fit in their gear so I suspect they were carrying survey and locating equipment that would be used to mark where the explosives needed to be placed.

Once they examined the pipeline, marked the proper coordinates, they would have had time to examine the data with explosive engineers, return to the site at a later time, and place the required charges to be detonated on a timer or remotely. Thank you.


This letter reads completely legitimate to me. And it also shines reality’s light on how crack-brained the story about two divers with two assistants, a captain and a woman doctor, sailing a small yacht doing the same secret “mission” off Bornholm Island.


The Zeit and New York Times stories sound like it happened off Gilligan’s Island.

Here is the sabotage crew of that yacht! I’ve found out its real name, the S.S. Minnow. They purportedly took this staged photo with a derelict camera they found on Christiansø. Unnamed sources point out that it was taken when the two divers were underwater planting one of the eight bombs. To the right is the captain, the two diver assistants are behind the lady doctor. The captain, the doctor and one of the diver assistants are triple checking that they all are keeping the same time on the submerged divers so they don’t get the bends hanging out down there at nearly 300 feet below sea level without top-secret helium rebreathers that only the US Navy possesses.

Is not For the Faint of Heart
It is a Year for those Brave Enough
To Find in Its Whirlwind
Of Historical Upheaval and Change
The Inner “Eye” that Watches the Storm



Three Cards from Ma Deva Padma’s Osho Zen Tarot Deck. I use it when I give private readings. What does this spread say about the year 2023? It will be a year of incredible Change. Remember therefore, the more the Wheel of Karma and Change spins, the more one discovers the witnessing consciousness that is Eternal and is forever the same and forever renewed. Thus we learn that “We Are the World.” All different colors of the rainbow are available to us when we live in the Eternity of the Present moment.

This is forever the perfect moment to stand on Terra-firma, exactly where you need to be.

Existence then shows you “the Rainbows” of Mystery, Truth and Bliss. Only when you are living in the Herenow can you see, can you be, these Rainbows.

And finally, how does one come to “Inner”-stand that We are the World?

Allow the world undergoing incredible changes in 2023 to work its contrast to bring forth awareness of that inside of us, that is not the mind, the heart of the body, that is Changeless Soul.

When you come to witness this Changless Soul, be the Divine Fool!

Take this very moment to make an ultimate jump into the Unknown. Become it.

Let your Being-Trust be your guide.

Trust is not Faith. The latter is false because it is borrowed.

You were Trust before you were born. Trust is never born, and it never dies.

Thirty-six years ago I exploded onto the media scene with my revolutionary new, fully illustrated, magazine-style take on the prophet Nostradamus producing Nostradamus and the Millennium for Doubleday-Dolphin Publishers. That book was an international bestseller in nine languages with over 800,000 copies sold. It remained number eight on the Associated Press’s bestseller list for six months! A flurry of documentaries on History Channel, Discovery Channel, even major network channels like the four-part series NBC’s Ancient Prophecies, and Fox network’s Prophecies of the Millennium followed. My book and my appearances launched a new television industry on four continents producing more than two hundred Nostradamus and prophecy documentaries so far and I appeared in all but five of these documentaries since 1987. I became the “go to” guy on prophecies of Nostradamus and many other traditions. By 1994, I started a 19-year association with Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM. Then followed another few decades with George Noory on Coast to the present day.

Back in the late 1980’s and throughout the 1990s, what I had to say was your entertainment because that future was far, far away from your reality. It’s fun to be scared by stuff so far away that you can’t really believe it could happen, such as confronting the darker side of the Aquarian Age, a new global corporate fascism making a police state with a smile and cancelling free speech in the name of “democracy.” Wasn’t that just some dystopian guff from Mr. Hogue laid down in 1990 and published in 1994?

A prophecy like Science Fiction, is fiction unless it is fulfilled right? And anyway, predictions are rarely fulfilled so why not enjoy the thrill of the scary stuff that will be forgotten. I also said in 1998 that if the divisions and gridlock in the US congress deepened to divide the nation that we’d be on the threshold of a second American Civil War by 2020. Well that decade is so far away to remember when you first heard it in 1998.

In 2000 on Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM I told his audience that George Bush if elected would within two-years of his first term have some great Islamist Terrorist event happen by then and he would be invading and occupying Iraq with American troops. Saddam Hussein would quickly fall but the occupation by US soldiers would be our second “Vietnam.” Rather than sunk in a quagmire of tropical jungles and swamps, a new American political and military quagmire of sinking sands of the Middle East awaited.

Starting 36 years ago I was merely entertaining, but it started changing after I warned on Fox Network’s Prophecies of the Millennium documentary, broadcast across the United States in March 1996, that the twin towers of New York City would be taken down by terrorists. Six years later, it happened. The twin towers DID go down in flames. Moreover, two weeks before the 11 September 2001 terror attacks, that documentary had appeared across America on Fox’s FX Channel. For a second time America was shown the towers falling, just weeks before they actually fell.

No dire and accurate prophecy goes unpunished for being “unentertaining” when it comes true. My “two-towers falling” prophecy got me blacklisted from appearing on any Fox network channels.

However my story with the 9/11 attacks and Nostradamus’ prophecies about them was well documented, starting with publishing articles about it as far back as 1983 and my many references to it in my 1997 book Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies pinpointing when it would happen “no later than 2001” and my television appearance on Fox had accurately foreseen it. Hence as the piles of ruins that were once the two towers would smoke and steam into autumn, that 950-page book, quickly reprinted, became the biggest best seller of that autumn of 2001. It was even featured on NBC’s Today Show as the one book that survived the cancelling of all new book releases for the 2001 holiday season, a tome that wasn’t even new, but released four years earlier, made number 1 book on Amazon’s bestseller list.

So, I was still entertaining but mostly to a new generation of people sobered by the 9/11 tragedy, wanted to know how it had changed history’s course for the future. People were more aware of my take on the future than ever before, but I was losing the idle entertained crowd and more factually scaring my audience now. But starting with those early years of the new century my oracular attention began concentrating more and more on what I called the “Roaring” 2020s approaching.

That was OK for many readers merely wanting to be distracted and entertained, for it was still nearly two decades away, right? It might not happen, all those scary things. Perhaps even scarier was Hogue pressing his solutions to avoid these catastrophes. That it required people to stop living like programmed robots of their various societies.

Don’t tell me to “grow up”—especially to “grow inward” Mr. Hogue.

I don’t want to evolve and stand up consciously to the coming roar of that lion, the man-eating decade of the 2020s.

I was telling you and millions of others then just about everything that the 2020s have become so far. A time of fascism’s return as a corporate (globalist) aristocracy. The potential of a Third World War in the early 2020s. The potential of a new and Greater Depression by 2023. And that before this decade is over, few will be able to deny that we are in a planetary climatic disaster in the making and that no one on either side of the debate, neither the Climate Change Deniers nor the Green Cult, have a clue about what is needed to be done about it.

I was telling you in the 2000s about humanity being overdue for a great pandemic not seen since the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920, possibly waiting for us in the 2020s. You could be comforted by the long time left to deny it. Now many of the things I foresaw yet to happen are at your doorstep.

It is yours and mine and the world’s REALITY, coming into the present. Because of that, most of the people listening to me or reading me at the beginning of my prophetic journey who were merely wanting to be entertained have predictably stopped listening. They have stopped reading and are in search of a place to bury their heads in the sand. Moreover, I would say that they are doing it at a critical time when rather than hiding their heads where the light of reality never shines, they need to respond to the accuracy of my warnings and change that future that is now pounding on door and shaking your threshold of the present, trying to break in.

So I celebrate and praise you few remaining readers who have stayed with me on this journey to these present times. I also praise all you new readers who ARE looking for answers and ways to change the future or at least understand its evolutionary blows.

Now it takes GUTS to read and listen to me and you have such a resolve.

I don’t blame those who run away. I merely take note of their idle interests and idle lives. Such is the case. But you who are reading this right now, if you are still reading me this far, you are one of the courageous people who keep reading and listening to me.

So here then are a series of important, game changing, civilization altering, collective West isolating, Eurasian/Global South revitalizing forecasts for 2023 in the following articles:

The Solution to End All Wars

Exactly one month before I set down this article, the Russian government of Vladimir Putin presented two draft agreements—one to the NATO leaders—and one to the leaders of the United States. It was meant to start a process of completely redesigning firstly Russo-America and secondly European Security Structures that would bring a lasting peace where ALL signatories share equal security from war. We are on the eve of the Russian Military Climax starting in the end of winter through the spring of 2023 that may set in motion through the hubris of the West’s lust for war, the prospect by the end of spring 2023 of NATO being eyeball-to-eyeball with the Russians in a DIRECT war.

Before it potentially begins, I give you here: the Ending.

It was set down on 17 December 2021 and it will in the future become the diplomatic basis for an “end game.” And when those that were planning this war, while Moscow was composing these draft treaties, have lost their war, Russia will present the exact same proposal once again...

Perhaps at the moment of reckoning before nuclear buttons are pushed, the Western leadership with no reverse gear, standing before the looming reality of Armageddon will find themselves ungirding their neoliberal, neo-conning loins to let an exposed atavistic fear of death let piss their underpants and panties with that urine smell of suppressed cowardice.

Foiled and well “soiled” they will back off from Doomsday on the Ukrainian front. And then they will do what they did in Afghanistan, just let Ukraine completely collapse and pretend in the next moment that Ukraine “don’t mean nothin’!”

It is not a reverse gear engaged. They don’t have that built in their body-mind vehicles. The neocon, neo-liberal bipartisan pathology running Washington DC will memory hole Ukraine, instead. Perhaps they will blame it on Biden, make him the scapegoat, throw him out of office for upsetting their global domination plans.

It will be Joe Biden the Brainless’s fault.

We haven’t put a gear in reverse. We had to dump Afghanistan in 2021 to make a move on Russia in 2022 through Ukrainistan. Alright, drop Ukraine down the same trash bin as Afghanistan, just leave and let them starve like many an Afghani forgotten. Time to move forward and prepare for our number one showdown: China, over Taiwan. Put the Russian front and NATO on the shelf. We’ll come back to that once we greatly disempower and militarily defeat China…! Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

All but One of the Russia’s Military Goals
Will be Fulfilled

And that One Remaining Aim Could Take Decades!
If it can be Fulfilled at All

I hope I can see Russia again someday and stand on Russian earth where I last saw her, in a past life that ended there at Borodino on 7 September 1812. I spent a decade full of memories of a life ending in that year as an invader of Russia, finally tracking down who I once was. I was doing my own version of what Tibetan Lamas do to find to prove a reincarnation objectively. It will appear in a small book someday, or in an essay where I take the subject of reincarnation down 1,000 years of evolution.

Reincarnation is a mystery. The people and culture we love in one life can be the people and culture we invade in another. The slave owner in the American South in a past life was the Negro slave. The Jew was once a Nazi. If people could experience these memories, it would end wars and bring peace and understanding. It would bring compassion to our hearts to forgive ourselves and forgive others their transgressions, their crimes if they knew that the innocents in one life are the criminals in the next. We might then search inside to find that inside of us which is eternal and beyond all these identity changes, all these two-sided coins of love-hate, good-evil, heaven-hells.

We might discover a constant and eternal “godliness” (Набожность). True “Piety…” Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

In Israel’s Short History:

Air Strike on Iran in 2023 Anyone???

Israel, whether Zionist Supremacist or not, cannot afford to harm its friendship with Russia in a naval engagement in the Persian Gulf between the US and Iran. It must keep on the good side of Russia’s pragmatic relationship where the Russians will sometimes allow Israeli jets and missile strikes on Iranian assets in Syria, but all of this could change with the Arab and Muslim world profiting from their new economic and military alliances with Russia and China and belonging in the BRICS alliance which will become the alternative to the G20 in the West. It will have its own reserve currency anchored to “Saudi” oil like the US once had. Without it, how can Israel’s chief investor and “big brother” ally afford to go to full-scale war for the Jewish State in the Persian Gulf?

Israel might have its own nuclear deterrent, but what will deter the Middle East from joining the BRICS “economic deterrent” backed by India, Russia and China?

Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock the chief German war hawk of the “once upon a time peace-loving tree-hugging” Green Party in Scholz’s coalition government, had stamped her foot down. She successfully threatened that the German government would not stand in the way of other countries willing to donate some of their own Leopard tanks to the bellicose cause.

Feeling triumphant she stated in English before the European Council in Brussels on 25 January something that Scott Ritter rightfully calls Germany’s foreign minister declaring outright war on Russia. With her little girl mouse voice, this mouse-brained foreign minister said, “And therefore I’ve said in the last days: yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks, but that the most important and crucial part is that we do it together, and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”

Throwing Western Weaponry
At the Losing War in Ukraine

I would interject here that as the collective West throws more tanks at the problem the are mostly Leopard tanks, German-manufactured tanks, i.e. German Panzers. These ignorant and obsessed EU leaders aren’t even aware how the Russians do not perceive that these Spanish, Canadian, Dutch, Polish owned Leopards are anything other than armored vehicles called Panzers, German tanks whether their treads churn up Ukraine or Russian soil now or as they did in June 1941 as Hitler’s invasion of German tanks.

Hence, it doesn’t matter that they paint over the black-and-white Iron Crosses on them with other European national symbols. They’ll probably see many of them once in Ukrainian hands repainted with Iron Crosses, SS symbols and Swastikas. Especially if they’re given to the Ukrainian Nazi battalions, of Azov, Right Sector, units.

It is such a dreadful look. Especially when the post-Second World War German government pledged never to send their tanks in offensives eastward AGAIN! Not even in this can they honor their pledges… Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

So here we are in the final years of Pluto’s transit back in forth—direct course and retrograde to direct course again—until it completely moves into its new “French Revolutionary” exact return transit in Aquarius, starting on 18 May 2034 just as the European and American middle classes already since the 2020s left in a deep grip of a midlife crisis, while a whole flock of new middle classes emerge around the world in this new Pluto orbital cycle. Democracy is under threat of a global corporate fascism and revolutions on the streets of Earth are about to return.

There aren’t guillotines at the ready to solve the Davos problem of global aristocracies. But I am here to say that 2022 was the turning point for this crack-brained idea of Klaus Schwab playing the “doctor evil” James-Bond bad guy who wants to play Blofeld of Spector and rule the world with his little band of elite “geniuses”.

That future is fated to be a less James Bond, and more Austin an Powers movie. The Davos gathering is losing its luster, rubbing too long and hard against its own echo chambered ego trips.

Big players aren’t showing up this year. Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India and President Xi Jinping of China, indeed there is not one member of the Chinese government showing up. Russia has been banned from coming, but there was a day when “Doctor Evil” Schwab entertained Dobby the Kremlin “House Elf” (Vladimir Putin) as a regular star guest trying to woo him over to the dark side of his “Farce.”

A European Spring Forward
And an American Fall Back in 2023
The Axis Shift of Civilizations

This is Cold War Two, baby!

Captain Karmic Echo is in the building waiting to get down with you.

If I were to translate the above in “Honkey,” it would read thus:

The former Soviet Union before it collapsed and imploded economically kept Eastern Europe as its satellite vassal servants, its buffer zone against NATO nations. The American hegemon has designs to turn all of EU and NATO allied Europe into its subservient vassal pact guarding the Iron curtain that the West put up against Russia in this new Dry-Iced Hot Cold War Two.

And your future, Europeans, if you decide to surrender to it rather than rebel against it, will see you descend in quality of life into a Eastern Soviet-style European state of being a, dull, drab and a dingy Eastern European echo from the Cold War past. It will happen rapidly unless you find where you mislaid your European “spine” and prevent bipartisan Neocons and Neoliberal extremists in the US Deep State from making you their honey bitch.

Yeah, the above might now sound like Honkey Hogue is going all “Science Fiction dystopian” on you now, since he wrote this Warsaw Pact jive passage back on 20 January 2023, but by the time the Thin Spring comes, watch how the US Marshal Plan of the past gets turned upside down… Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

Will deal with its Existential Threat

Now We come at Last
To America’s Existential Threat

It is Important to Understand
Whether or not it is Far Greater than Russia’s
Possibly bringing us to the Brink
Of the World’s End

Russia went to war over US-NATO leadership crossing long ago its red line, that if crossed brought Russia in its view to a crisis no less powerful—indeed if not a more powerful national threat—than what the US leadership under John F. Kennedy in October 1962 faced. For years now, I have warned my readers, TV viewers and radio listeners that NATO’s breaking of promises not to encroach eastward, absorbing Eastern European countries into its alliance until it advanced right on Russia’s frontiers, would someday have backed the Russian Bear up against a wall.

The Russian bear has nowhere else to retreat.

Never corner a bear!

Keep far away, and everything will be peaceful.

March your NATO real estate and vassal collecting game right up to his secluded territory and you put the bear in a state of a life-or-death crisis. And it you’re not a Russian bear, but a fragile human being with more bravura than balls, discovering that your military industries are no match to wage war with the Russian Bear, discovering that you brag too much about winning, etc. Well, maybe you’ve stepped in some deep bear shit and the luckiest thing that can happen to you is that you don’t get mauled, but you do at last get exposed for being the bully-wimp that you have ever been.

And Realities For 2023


Scenes from Soylent Green. (Above) movie poster. (1st picture below) Robert Thorn a NYC detective (Charlton Heston) & his “Book” Sol Roth, (Edward G. Robinson) on a murder case. Someone killed an Exec from Soylent Corporation that feeds the city of 40 million New Yorkers in the future. (2nd picture below) Thorn at the temple of dying. Roth is on the bed, right, during his assisted suicide. They watch film of the world as it once was before humanity destroyed it. (3rd picture below) Thorn is crying. He never saw the beauty of what once was. Roth had known it, often talked about it. (4th picture below) Roth is about to tell Thorn his terrible discovery in papers taken from the murder scene.





Over an hour into the movie one became accustomed to its signature, extinction-level drab colors, its endless multitudes cast in smog tones of a pale, orange-pealed sky, its squalid slums, the perpetual day-and-night humid heatwave gripping the catastrophic wreck that New York had become in that future.

Then. Suddenly.

It was so shocking an impact.

We were hearing and watching what the Book lying there is hearing and watching coming from the ceiling screen.

There were sonic harmonies filling his bedroom of final parting with Beethoven’s pastoral symphony (starting at minute 1:04). Beethoven’s innocent and happy pastoral tones suddenly dazzled the ear, and the ceiling screen bursts forth in full colors that one, watching this movie had forgotten, depicting a world of verdant fields, oceans of flowers, snowcapped mountains and the sky was incredibly fresh and blue!

Robinson “the Book” asked Heston “the cop” over the intercom if he could see it? How beautiful the world once was? Heston’s character had always shrugged it off—the old man’s cranky comparisons of the current world to the past—not really caring, until now. He was seeing for the first time what world that beloved man had grown up in, a world he never would know.

President Biden declares War
On Maga Supporters of Donald Trump

Control-Osho_Zen_TarotOn 01 September 2022, President Joe Biden delivered a speech to the American people that was out of a jaw dropping horror movie. Something wickedly “fascist” this way came out of his mouth, often with shrieking and yelling. The Chief Executive of the country seemed juiced up on something to temporarily stir up his dementia addled mind delivering one of the most violent and threatening speeches ever uttered by a US President. The theme was the continued battle for the soul of the nation full of American symbology but cast in horror movie lights bathing the background of his jet-black podium where hovered the Presidential Seal aligned with a back-lit circle of spectral light in a window of Independence Hall.

Talk about totalitarian overtones. These red-only lights enhancing black shadows turned the Liberty Hall into some Halloween haunted house with the framing atop the door looking like a straight-lined set of Nazi eagle wings behind Biden’s head. And what are those Marines in silhouette standing on guard doing there? Biden seems to be modeling for the Osho Zen Tarot Card for CONTROL, all squared, as squared as Saturn squares Uranus on that day, and through most of the upcoming final two months of the midterm election season. The square symbolized the Establishment status quo (Uranus in its detriment in Taurus) using revolutionary powers (Saturn squared Uranus’ home sign of Aquarius) to stifle humanitarian tolerance, free speech and democracy itself…

The red scare is represented by the demon lurid RED light, in the blackest contrasting shadow, possessing Independence Hall, Philadelphia, behind Biden. Here the red stands for the red-flag of insurrection, of red “republican” terrorists, as the British Empire might have depicted American Revolutionary dreams of establishing a republic as a dangerous insurrection that needs to be suppressed.

Here then is Biden’s core message to the American people:

And Why “Woke” is a Pejorative Term to Me

In 2018 I set down a cautionary prediction about how something positive—not for women’s equality, but for women’s equal uniqueness to men—was a possible outcome for the burgeoning “Me Too” movement. Yet I also warned that it could end up that burning witches became a blame game of “guilty until proven innocent” in acts of “warlock” (male witch) burning. In the end “Me Too” did generally devolve into what has overtaken especially left-leaning Americans, a cult of cancel culture.

Julian Assange.


To a Fifth Estate Salvation

It was in London, October 1994, that I chanced upon a bricked place on one of my long walks through the grand old city after my chores doing radio shows in a booth at the BBC building or appearing on TV spots had ended each day in the early afternoon during my first book tour in the British capital. The place in question was not far from Harrod’s Department Store, just down a side street at the end of the embassy quarter.

One would find mansions adorned in that quarter with brass plagues and pretty flags of many a nation. The phantasmagorical building that stopped me in my tracks consisted of very bright red bricks with white trim. The festive colors of the Ecuadorian yellow-blue-and-red tricolor flag played well against it. It was a curvaceous building, trying to imitate the Tower of London castle keeps on the corners with a grid of white framed windows with a black inner trim wrapped around the rounds.

I think Dr. Seuss must have designed it. Either that or its eccentricities might have made a good backdrop for the Beatles Sixties-style cartoon movie, Yellow Submarine.

Requires a Rebellion within the Overlording Aristocracy


In the latter half of 2007 I began evolving a prescient vision of a new kind of Oligarchy. I called it the CEOligarchy. Most of my essays on it, beginning with his one (below) published in late January 2008, examine the negative potentials of a new global elite class we sometimes call the “one-percenters” that have most of the political, and financial power to rule the world as the embodiment of a new incarnation of fascism. But there was an alternative history where I foresaw that the hope of humanity transcending this elite’s control comes initially not from their own popular rebellion, for they neither had the funds, a surviving free press or the capital to rebel. The rebellion must come from within the belly of the elitist beast.

I began to evolve this idea in the following passage from 15 years ago to the month, and I recall on this very day, in Predictions for 2008, published in late January 2008… Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

2023 is the Year of Prophetic Vindication
And Cancel Culture’s Karmic Comeuppance
Because the Evidence on at Least one Privately Owned “Public Commons” is no Longer Suppressed

First, a word about the photos of the Twitter office “before and after” Elon Musk took over Twitter. On the left we have a crowd of mostly girls with a few guys “before,” and a shot to the right of mostly geeky men with a few geeky girls (see upper left, and girl waving in back, another girl near the back right wall.

Some people look at the “after” picture and say, “Where are all the women?” But one could also equally ask, looking at the “former” picture, “Where were all the men before Musk changed everything?”

In both cases the gender extreme majority changed. Isn’t it telling that one side mostly saw it only as a woman change.

Miss_Umbridge_SmileBut beyond that, I think people are missing something in the energy of the two pictures. Pre-Musk, the smiles are a bit forced. Except for a few, the majority of smiles look strain-fully plastered on the faces of many of the people arranged before us who did a whole lot of censoring free speech as the Twitter Thought Police, sort of how a young Miss Umbridge might have smiled as a student at Hogwarts before she grew into her sadistically magical abuse-of-power trip as a middle-aged lady.

The stiffs are gone.

And perhaps do in Other Media Adventures
In the Year 2023

I’m fortunate to have had two physically strong and in the case of my late mother, an enduring strength of mind and body that only in her last seven years did old age begin to catch up with her and carry her off halfway through her 88th year.

So I have an idea how long I might have to arrange my “bucket list” of books that need first chance to use this body-mind to complete them, because their messages will be most valuable to my readers, provoking them and helping them. My mother’s health problems began when she was passing through her eighty-first year. I am passing, at present, three months and three days so far left in my sixty-eighth year.

There’s a good chance that I have a decade left to finish what I call my “Apotheosis” book projects. These include a three-volume (750-page each) ultimate examination of ALL of Nostradamus’ prophetic works, translated into English and fully interpreted, giving each prophecy, be it prose or his more famous verses (quatrains) prophecies, the length of space that each verse requires to tell its story as well as comprise the evolution of my interpretations of that story over the last half-century.

This project is my “last testament” on Nostradamus and of what I envision for the future as well as what has been fulfilled. And if I can release these three volumes in a similar serialization of three steps as Nostradamus did, starting in the mid-1550s into the early 1560s, then depending on health and the usual interruptions of life, you may see the serialization of one 750-page volume released per year either starting at 2025, 2026 and 2027 or more likely 2026, 2027 and 2028… Get 12 months of full access now to all my articles for only $60 or a little more.

So Far Experienced in this Life

This Fourth Premonition
Is the most Powerful
And the Most Strange!

It Leaves Me Beyond Hope,
Therefore, I am Celebrating Life
Beyond Hopelessness

May I meet this end, if it happens, the way the Zen Master Yoka once wrote:

A man of Zen walks in Zen and sits in Zen. Whether he speaks or acts, whether he is silent or inactive, his body is always peaceful. He smiles, looking straight at the sword which takes his life. He keeps his balance even at the moment of death.

May I be a meditation of witnessing, smiling at the nuclear sword, in bliss-balance, which takes my life even at the moment of death.

Now then. If you find yourself “not” smiling at the approaching sword, please take a hand to gently close your jaw, perhaps dropped in horror at what I’ve just shared about what life in Langley would be like during at least 100 megatons of Russian nuclear warheads going off around here.

Cease your sobs or let go of your rage at me for saying the unspeakable. But remember, if you are reading this, You and I are still alive.

And despite what I just wrote above, I work to the very last moment in mysterious ways to see this Fourth Premonition vanish, and for our world to pass through this temptation of human auto-suicidal acts to instead flourish and continue our existence down a timeline that Nostradamus at least hints in his farthest future-dated prophecy that we will still be around in the year ad 3797, less than 1,800 years hence.
