"Buckle UP!" - The next 12 days and beyond



Eh no. “Q” was concocted by M*ssad so there’ll be no talk of the genetic % of that ethnicity that can traced back to the Holy Land in AD 33. What better way to distract from their Island honeypot operation than to spread the idea there was a giant web of such activity?


If that was the measure of its intended effect then it failed and caused the exact opposite.

Ukraine turns off Europe-bound gas

Kiev cites “force majeure” to halt a third of Russian transited gas flow to Europe, while Gazprom says there have been no issues that would justify the move

Russian gas conglomerate Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or any obstacles to continued transit of gas through a junction in Lugansk Region, the company said on Tuesday, after Ukraine’s operator OGTSU announced it would halt further deliveries starting May 11, due to the presence of “Russian occupiers.”

Gas Transit Services of Ukraine (OGTSU) declared force majeure on Tuesday, saying that it was impossible to continue the transit of gas through a connection point and compressor station located in the Lugansk area. As OGTSU personnel “cannot carry out operational and technological control” over the Sokhranovka connector point and Novopskov compressor station, the company cannot continue to fulfill its contract obligations, it said.

Gas from this connection will not be accepted into the transit system of Ukraine starting at 7 am on Wednesday, OGTSU said. Sokhrankovka accounts for almost a third of the Russian gas that transits through Ukraine to Europe – up to 32.6 million cubic meters per day – according to the operators.

Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or disruption of operations at Sokhranovka or Novopskov, company spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov said on Tuesday. He added that Ukrainian specialists have had full access to both facilities all along, and there had been no complaints about it previously.

Kupriyanov also said that Gazprom has been notified by Ukraine’s gas company Naftogaz that if Russia continues to supply gas through Sokhranovka, Kiev will reduce the volume at the point of exit by the same amount, effectively confiscating the gas.

While OGTSU has proposed to reroute the gas to Sudzha, a connector located in the Sumy region and controlled by the Ukrainian government, Kupriyanov said this was “technologically impossible.”

“The distribution of volumes is clearly spelled out in the cooperation agreement dated December 30, 2019, and the Ukrainian side is well aware of this,” he said.

Gazprom is fulfilling all of its obligations to its European customers, with all the transit services in accordance with the terms of the contract and paid in full, Kupriyanov pointed out. Moscow has continued gas deliveries to Europe, including transit through Ukraine, regardless of the ongoing military operation and the embargoes against Russia imposed by the US and its allies in the EU.

:timer_clock: :question:


Being wildly speculative here but you’d have to wonder if using Chimpanzee adenovirus to make the Astrazeneca vaccine could have been a source for this. Were any samples contaminated? Did they really purify those adenoviruses perfectly? As far as I’m aware you don’t purify these things perfectly. You just have a collection of them (i.e. a collection of different sized molecules). This is the same even for the outer shell of the mRNA vaccines by the way. Nothing is purified perfectly e.g. to individual molecule territory. It’s usually impossible with PEG chains molecules and large molecules. With PEGylated molecules basically you don’t have a perfectly isolated molecule. It’s like attaching spaghetti to something. These molecules are then dumped in with other molecules and mRNA to make up the liposomes. It’s like mixing ingredients for making a cake, or laying cement.

I would not be surprised if modifications to adenoviruses have similar outcomes. Again, not my area of study but, this type of Science on these larger molecules is not one where you isolate them as individual molecules. They are too big to purify perfectly. I would love to hear someone else’s thoughts that has worked in this area. I can think of a number of other scenarios using these that could also lead to a monkeypox outbreak but I’ll just leave this one above here for now.

Again, this kind of cake mix Science is prone to so many problems that it really should require decades of safety testing. Just mind boggling that they mostly bypassed this and did a token trial. Look at the problems Thalidomide caused with a slightly different bond angle on a small molecule. Again, for the lay person, this is like saying, if you shake hands with someone with your right hand, it makes them feel good, but if you shake hands with the mirror image of the right hand, the left hand, this will cause their unborn child to die or be completely mutilated. It’s that simple. So, blow up a Thalidomide molecule to the size of Godzilla (relatively speaking), and then wonder if anything could possibly go wrong then. The FDA doesn’t think so. I guess they are the experts after all. Trust the Science.


No idea but an excellent if worrying thought. It happened with simian virus 40 in batches of the polio vaccine in the past. Given the speed at which the production lines must have been turned over to a new process / vaccine production and the sheer volume of these they were required to rapidly produce, how extensive or high were quality control checks & measures? No iterative audits / checks over the years. There were issues at one US plant that was running both AZ & J&J that hit the news. So who knows :slightly_frowning_face:.

Update: it was more than 60 million doses…


Order of disaster:

First: #cryptocrash
Second: #stockmarketcrash
Third: #goldcrash
Fourth: #realestatecrash It’s definitely here!

#goldcrash? I would have thought it’s the one thing that might stay stable, or even rise? Or do you think the Russian peg will destabilise gold, rather than gold stabilising the rouble?

I’m just hoping there won’t be a bad euro/fiat crash or hyperinflation :slightly_frowning_face:


As a matter of interest what relevance would crypto’s performance have for the real economy ? Or real estate?


Um - this may be a huge precedent…
5th district court just said SEC rulings violate right to jury trial so unconstitutional, also stuff about how only legislative body is Congress.

Could this set precedent for rulings / mandates etc from other bodies like CDC? IRS? FDA? OSHA? If upheld by Supreme Court (if challenged) @jmc?


Its just the SEC playing fast and loose with Administrative Law. Basically as the case involved large civil penalties including punitive damages and given the nature of the legislative framework for the SEC case and the case-law once the perps asked for a jury trial (an Article III court) the SEC had no solid legal basis to deny that petition. The key part is that equivalent SEC cases had gone to jury trial in the past without SEC complaint.

The ruling seems well argued. As for the effect on the rest of Administrative Law not really a big deal. It seems (surprise surprise) the relevant SEC Federal statues had some drafting issues and were unclear on certain points. Which the SEC interpreted one way. And convinced lower courts that was correct. This ruling lays out a good case they were wrong.

As for the case itself. The perps sound guilty as hell and a jury trial was a last ditch attempt to escape the consequence. Given how clear cut the case looks the only thing that might have bough them is the possibility of a procedural error during the jury trial. Thats all… They probably would have lost at jury.

Net outcome I’d guess is the SEC Administrative Law enforcement will just rewrite some of their procedures. Dont think there will be a great increase in jury trials in these enforcement cases. As most involve fraud going the jury route opens up the possibility criminal rather than civil charges being filed by the SEC. Which is a whole new ballgame.


OK - thank you!


Buckling & Buttoning Up.

the strip club is sadly a leading indicator and i can promise y’all we r in a recession lmao

I will make changes on my investment strategy for the rest of the year based on this thread, thank you ladies



This is not a strip club link, sorry.
