A lot has been happening in recent weeks around the world. Nothing earth-shattering yet but significant enough to be able to state that some are positive events.
January 22: Freedom Convoy in Canada.
January 25: Wisconsin Assembly votes to withdraw its 10 electors for Biden. Apparently, it is currently sitting at the Rules Committee. Interestingly, I cannot get onto the Wisconsin State Legislature Home Page (legis.wisconsin.gov) to check its progress. Although this is a positive development, it remains to be seen how far this goes and to what extent other states will follow.
January 28: Pennsylvania Court rules the mail-in voting law unconstitutional.
January 28/29: Canadian Justin Trudeau “isolates” due to exposure to COVID *cough*, then conveniently moves to a secure location. To what extent will this protest expand to the US and other parts of the world?
January 31: Zero Hedge reports that Pelosi’s son Paul Jnr is under FBI investigation.
More generally, the mainstream COVID narrative is continuing to break down as more data is obtained (in case one still needs to be convinced). The UK, Ireland and Denmark are some of the countries which ended or are about to end COVID restrictions. Whilst some countries such as Australia are continuing to push vaccinating children and mandating boosters (third shot) for some workers, Sweden is recommending against vaccinating the 5–11 age group.
Other positive developments include Ghislaine Maxwell being found guilty on five charges even if the trial was somewhat uneventful, then Prince Andrew losing his titles.
Regarding the possibility of war, the issue between Russia, Ukraine and NATO remains unresolved. The US is still conducting their usual surveillance flights along the Russian borders. Also, gas storage levels continue to be low across Europe although it is, overall, not that much lower than this time last year.
January 22: Russian Su-57 buzzes Kiev, Ukraine, at 1150ft with its transponder on.
January 23: PLAAF sends 39 military aircraft into Taiwanese ADIZ, which is more than the usual few.
Russia stirring crap in Israel and Ukraine doesn’t say much about Russia. According to some commentators, there is a good Russian element forming part of or aligned with the so-called white hats around the world. If it is the bad guys, they would do it for their selfish reasons. If it is the good guys, they would do it anyway since Israel and Ukraine has their bad elements that need to be cleaned up.
What is concerning is that if the conflict escalates and even if it is initiated by the good guys for good reasons, the bad guys can still usurp that effort and escalate the conflict in a different direction; for example, WWIII.
The timing is not surprising. According to some commentators, one of the reasons for the apparent lack of action of the military white hats is legal in nature. (There were other considerations as well such as clearing tunnels and securing suitcase nukes.)
According to the US Law of War Manual, which takes a lot from the Geneva Convention (GC):
11.3.2 Duration of GC Obligations in the Case of Occupied Territory. In the home territory of parties to the conflict, the application of the GC shall cease on the general close of military operations.
In the case of occupied territory, the application of the GC shall cease one year after the general close of military operations…
Also, 18 US Code § 1385 prohibits the military from doing any domestic policing even though there is the possibility of martial law (which is another matter).
Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
Another consideration is that according to the GC and Law of War Manual, there is a distinction between “Privileged Belligerents” and “Unprivileged Belligerents”. In other words, a uniformed soldier or one who obviously acts as one even if not uniformed is to be treated differently from a spy or saboteur.
The cyber-interference in the 2020 Presidential Election by domestic and foreign entities, and perhaps even the COVID-19 virus that geographically originated from outside the US but involved domestic and foreign entities can be considered as treason and acts of war. And since the current Biden administration and those involved have not identified themselves clearly, they can be considered as “Unprivileged Belligerents”. It has been just over one year since the inauguration on 20 January 2021 (“close of military operations”).
Taken together, some legal restrictions no longer apply after 20 January 2022. This probably explains the positive moves in recent weeks. There are reports that the National Guard is, for whatever official reasons, activated in all 50 states in the US. I cannot confirm that.
Will the white hats choose the overtly dramatic military option and/or the less dramatic legal option (although the two don’t necessarily exclude each other)? So far, it seems to be the latter. Either way, there is always the possibility of retaliation, including false flags. As the saying goes: Time will tell.
