Bludgeoning one pathogen without regard to the consequences

"A President Betrayed by Bureaucrats: Scott Atlas Exposes The Real COVID Disaster" (Tucker) (read the whole thing): 

"Throughout the book, Atlas points to the enormous cost of the machinery of lockdowns, the preferred method of Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx: missed cancer screenings, missed surgeries, nearly two years of educational losses, bankrupted small business, depression and drug overdoses, overall citizen demoralization, violations of religious freedom, all while public health massively neglected the actual at-risk population in long-term care facilities. Essentially, they were willing to dismantle everything we called civilization in the name of bludgeoning one pathogen without regard to the consequences."

No country or human being can put any trust in any agreement with or assurance from the American government, ever: "Classified Documents Invalidate United States' Appeal Against Assange — Richard Medhurst".

Are the European leaders, aka Euro-trash, stark raving mad?  "US trying to force Russia out of EU gas market – Serbia" (Tickle).  "The NATOstan Clown Show" (Escobar):
"The root cause of all this drama is stark: Kiev simply refuses to respect the February 2015 Minsk Agreement.

In a nutshell, the deal stipulated that Kiev should grant autonomy to Donbass via a constitutional amendment, referred to as “special status”; issue a general amnesty; and start a dialogue with the people’s republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.

Over the years, Kiev fulfilled exactly zero commitments – while the proverbial NATOstan media machine incessantly pounded global opinion with fake news, spinning that Russia was violating Minsk. Russia is not even mentioned in the agreement.

Moscow in fact always respected the Minsk Agreement – which translates as regarding Donbass as an integral, autonomous part of Ukraine. Moscow has zero interest in promoting regime change in Kiev.

This charade has come to a point that – diplomatically – is quite unprecedented: Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov lost his Taoist patience.

Lavrov was forced, under the circumstances, to publish 28 pages of correspondence between Moscow on one hand, and Berlin and Paris on the other, evolving around the preparation of a high-level meeting on Ukraine.

Moscow was in fact calling for one of the central points of the agreement to be implemented: a direct dialogue between Kiev and Donbass. Berlin and Paris said this was unacceptable. So yes: both, for all practical purposes, destroyed the Minsk Agreement. Public opinion across NATOstan has no idea whatsoever this actually happened.

Lavrov did not mince his words: “I am sure that you understand the necessity of this unconventional step, because it is a matter of conveying to the world community the truth about who is fulfilling, and how, the obligations under international law that have been agreed at the highest level.” 
So it’s no wonder that the leadership in Moscow concluded it’s an absolute waste of time to talk to Berlin and Paris about Ukraine: they lied, cheated – and then blamed Russia. This “decision” at the EU level faithfully mirrors NATO’s campaign of stoking the flames of imminent “Russian aggression” against Ukraine."
"Why the new German coalition pact doesn’t bode well for Iran" (Mamedov).

Germany now has a government, which has already made itself abundantly clear that its main interests are immigration, trannie promotion, and, of course WWIII (they check all the identity politics 'progressive' boxes while not being very progressive).  Are these the burning issues Germans want to promote?  "UK Army Reestablishes 'Permanent' Germany Presence Directed At "Russian Threat"" (Durden).  "Germany comments on Nord Stream 2 delays" (Guest):
"Shortly after the announcement of the delay, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba boasted that it was a result of his country’s lobbying. “Nord Stream 2 should have been operating and earning money a long time ago, but the fact that it still does not work and we are fighting against it is the result of our common efforts,” he proclaimed. 
The head of Ukraine’s state-run energy firm, Naftogaz, even went as far to say that, if given the green light, the new project heightens the chances of a “full-scale war” breaking out between Kiev and Moscow."
"Kremlin outlines who it believes is behind ‘hysteria’ around possible Ukraine invasion" (Tickle).

Some feeble signs of sanity:  "Leaked Docs Reveal Germany Is Urging Congress To Thwart Biden Admin Sanctions On Nord Stream 2" (Durden).

I used to think Maçães was a good writer, but I started to read the piece mocked here and gave up - he's now on the blacklist:  "Putin Mentions Gandhi: Proof He Loves Hitler!" (Robinson).
