Tower block residents throw water and accost mayor on visit after fatal fire tragedy
A council employee blocked the resident from chucking water at the mayor

16:49, 29 SEP 2022A woman attempts to throw water over the Mayor of Bristol, Marv https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/tower-block-residents-throw-water-7645174
The mayor of Bristol was accosted by angry residents of the tower block hit by last weekend's fire tragedy, with one throwing water towards him and accosting him as he approached the building for a meeting. The police were called to Twinnell House in Easton after the confrontation, which happened as Marvin Rees and his entourage visited the tower block for the first time since Sunday morning's fire, in which 30-year-old Abdul Jabar Oryakhel was killed.
One woman approached the mayor and a council employee managed to block her attempt to throw water over him from a distance, before the resident berated him in the street. Other residents, who have long complained about conditions in the tower block off Stapleton Road, said his visit, made five days after the fatal fire, had come too late.
The meeting with local residents lasted around an hour, and was held in the tower block's ground-floor community room, which had been closed and locked up by the city council for years. Residents said it was the first time many had ever been in there.
After the meeting, Mr Rees said it went well. "We had a very constructive conversation with residents, just about the building itself, how it was supposed to work in the event of a fire, and the building did work in the way it was supposed to work - the fire was contained, people were able to leave in an orderly way. The support measures were in place in the community.
"So we talked through that. We talked through their wider concerns about quality of life in the block as well, and about how we make sure that our housing services are as good as they need to be," he added. In recent years, residents of Twinnell House have been the subject of police and council protection orders because of anti-social behaviour and drug dealing, and in August 2020, parents told Bristol Live how their children have to run a gauntlet of drug dealers in the corridors trying to recruit them on their way home from school.
People living in Twinnell House have spoken out this week about the conditions in the flats, and about their fears over the fire safety procedures and the council's response. One resident told BBC Points West, who were the only media to have been informed in advance by the Mayor's Office about the visit taking place this morning, that they weren't happy the Mayor had left it so long.
"It's embarrassing for him to show his face after four days (since) when the incident happened," he said. "He's the representative of this city, and basically he didn't have time to come in to show his respect. We lost one of our own who lived in the building, and that's the city he's representing," he added.
The police were called to the tower block after the Mayor arrived. It is unclear who called them, but three officers arrived to the tower block. Bristol Live has asked the mayor's office if anyone from the mayor's team or the council called the police, and is awaiting a response.

David Livingstone reveals the ‘hidden hand’, the influence and events that have led us to where we are today.
In an uncensored conversation, David exposes the covert forces behind the Ukrainian War, Invasion? Liberation? or Distraction ??? And what of Canada, regarding Covid in the wake of the Truckers Freedom Convoy?
We look at where we are now and what we can expect next in this transformation.
Are we in a Great Reset or a Great Renaissance ??
David Livingstone is an independent researcher, and his book represents the culmination of nearly 30 years of research. When he attended the Liberal Arts College of Concordia University in Montreal, he read William H. McNeil’s The History of Western Civilization, which mentioned the appearance of the so-called “Indo-Europeans,” who emerged suddenly out of the Caucasus and conquered the known parts of the world. The story seemed strange to him. Most nations emerged gradually when they turned to agriculture. These Indo-Europeans had no prior presence in history and burst out of nowhere, and supposedly mastered the chariot, though they came from a mountainous region.
As David investigated further, he discovered that the “Indo-Europeans” was the politically-correct term for the Aryan race. And their existence was merely a theory, which was shaped through the influence of the occult, particularly Bible legends of the “Sons of God” and of Atlantis. he learned that these ideas derived from the influence of Freemasonry, and also the notorious Illuminati.
However, for the most part, mainstream historians have shied away from investigating what they consider a field rife with cranks and “conspiracy theory.” These societies typically claimed a fantastic pedigree about themselves, stretching far back into ancient times, and involving history’s most famous figures and epochs. While some of these assertions might sound outlandish, they were often nevertheless based in an element of truth. Therefore David set out to find out the truth about their origin and influence.
The result is a fascinating version of history, which reveals a completely different pattern and significance than has otherwise been taught by mainstream historians. In fact, McNeill’s “history” is propaganda, associated with a project from the University of Chicago, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, which is known as the “Western Civilizations Course.” It represents a eurocentric version of history inspired by the philosophy of Hegel. Interestingly, the one proof of Hegel’s affiliation with the Illuminati was his mention of the Owl of Minerva, the society’s symbol, which is also the logo of the Liberal Arts College.
Rather, the so-called history of “Western Civilization” as it is taught is inspired by the Kabbalah, which teaches history as an unfolding divine plan, where God is a man who comes to know himself. Supposedly, man’s intellectual development begins in Greece, with the emergence of philosophy, supposedly the first rejection of God, and the first attempt at the independent use of “reason.” In reality, Greek philosophy represented the first important development of the Kabbalistic tradition, which forms the bedrock of the Western occult tradition, which shaped most of the key events of Western history, from the Crusades to the Renaissance and finally the Enlightenment, which shaped our modern era.

The Labour Files 3of3 - The Hierarchy - Al Jazeera Investigations
An investigation based on the largest leak of documents in British political history. The Labour Files examines thousands of internal documents, emails and social media messages to reveal how senior officials in one of the two parties of government in the UK ran a coup by stealth against the elected leader of the party. The program will show how officials set about silencing, excluding and expelling its own members in a ruthless campaign to destroy the chances of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Britain’s prime minister. Candidates for key political roles were blocked and constituency groups suspended as the party’s central office sought to control the elected leadership.
Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit reveals how a British political party that claims to embrace progressive values created a hierarchy of racism that discriminated against its Black, Asian and Muslim members. Interviews, internal documents and social media messages shared by the most senior staff in Britain’s Labour Party betray a racist culture where abuse was aimed at their own colleagues, councillors and political leaders.
The Labour Files exposes how a battle for the heart of the UK’s main opposition party led to combatting anti-Semitism while creating secret dossiers to suspend Muslim members and shut down local democracy. Labour’s campaign to present a tough image on anti-Semitism while ignoring other forms of discrimination drove many staff to resign. One senior Labour staffer of Asian descent compared working in the Labour offices to be attacked by a racist thug.

Philip Beale - Former Royal Navy officer built a replica Phoenician galley trading ship in 2008, sailed it round Africa then, in late 2019, from Morocco to the Caribbean in 29 days
Martin Summers, Tony Gosling Fri 10th July 2020
Melvin Bragg’s ‘In Our Time’ show podcast from 2014 – Dr Mark Woolmer from Durham University discusses who the Phoenicians were. The Greek historian Herodotus wrote about a people from the Levant who were accomplished sailors and traders, and who taught the Greeks their alphabet. By about 700 BC they were trading all over the Mediterranean, taking Egyptian and Syrian goods as far as Spain and North Africa. Although they were hugely influential in the ancient world, they left few records of their own;
Interview with Philip Beale, former Royal Navy officer, who researched the Phoenicians, built a replica Phoenician galley trading ship in 2008, sailed it round Africa and then, in late 2019, from Morocco to the Caribbean in 29 days: history of the Phoenicians; famous Ra expedition in a reed-built Egyptian ship to the Americas across the Atlantic in 1971 by Thor Heyerdahl after previous 1940s Kon-Tiki expedition in the Pacific; evidence the Phoenicians made it across the Atlantic to the Americas;
With 300 settlements down the Eastern Atlantic coasts, did the ancient Phoenicians beat Christopher Columbus and John Cabot to North Americas by 3,000 years? Nicotine and Cocaine found in ancient Egyptian tombs. Similar alphabets to the Phoenicians found in South America, same with Scandinavian runes. Ancient Phoenician DNA found in modern Cherokee indian tribe. Phoenician visits to the Americas taught in Haitian and Mexican schools until the 1970s. Carthaginian coins found in the Azores on the way BACK from the Americas. - Replica Phoenician ship, Phoenicia, arrived into the Dominican Republic on 31st December 2019, after 39 days at sea. Having departed Tunisia on 29.09.19, the success of the Expedition reinforces the notion that the Phoenicians had the capability and skill to sail to the Americas. The Phoenicia has since moved north to the USA for a stay in Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The expedition aims to prove that the Phoenicians could have reached the Americas 2000 years before Christopher Columbus. - Phoenicians Before Columbus Facebook page -
Who reached America first – Columbus or the Phoenicians?
Replica Phoenician vessel made in Syria is sailing the Atlantic to prove the ancient civilisation did it 2,000 years before Columbus - Describing Columbus - who landed in the Americas in 1492 - as a “war criminal”, Beale said historical sources point to the Vikings (under Leif Erikson) having arrived in North America around 1000AD, followed, a few centuries later, by mediaeval Basque fishermen. Legends say Irish monk St Brendan also made the voyage in a leather boat; and that 14th-century emperor of Mali Abubakari II abdicated to set sail across the Atlantic in 1311. “The Phoenicians assembled one of the biggest fleets and almost certainly sailed to America. There doesn’t appear to be any record of ships returning but there are stories of African cultures being found in the jungles of Brazil so maybe they landed on the shores but couldn’t get back,” he said. - Writer and film-maker Lindsay McCauley travelled to Tunisia from Australia. While researching a book about Mayan architecture, he has drawn parallels between measurement systems used by the Mayans, the ancient Israelites and ancient Egyptians. “I can think of no other way for that measurement system to reach Mexico other than via a Phoenician ship, so this expedition is a crucial part of my research.”...
Vicious slaughter and genocidal crimes of 'war criminal Christopher Columbus - A young, Catholic priest named Bartolomé de las Casas transcribed Columbus’ journals & later wrote about the violence he had witnessed. The fact that such crimes could potentially go unnoticed by future generations was deeply troubling to him. He expanded upon the extent of Columbus’s reign of terror within his multi-volume book entitled the "History of the Indies": "There were 60,000 people living on this island, including the Indians; so that from 1494-1508, over 3,000,000 people had perished from war, slavery, & the mines. Who in future generations will believe this? I myself writing it as a knowledgeable eyewitness can hardly believe it." Such words offer the reader a firsthand account of the state-sponsored genocide that the Spanish Empire had financed through Columbus. Clearly, the intent of the Spanish Empire was to eradicate the islands of indigenous people through slavery and violence. In doing so they had further established their already dominant political/economic standing within Europe. In a matter of years, Columbus and his men decimated the indigenous people of the Caribbean islands

Is fracking safe?
No, fracking, as currently practiced across the United States, poses serious risks to the health and safety of communities and the environment.
Water supplies across the country have been contaminated in fracking-related cases -- either by natural gas that migrates out of wells and into underground aquifers, or by any number of byproducts from of fracking process: chemicals, harmful and/or toxic substances from the underground rock such as naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORMs), dissolved solids, liquid hydrocarbons including benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene, and heavy metals.
How serious is water contamination due to fracking?
Very serious. For one thing, we don't even know all the chemicals being used for fracking. But many of the ones we do know about are well-documented (1,2,3) for causing cancer, birth defects, and disorders of the nervous system. The same is true of many naturally occuring but highly toxic substances that are unearthed in the process, then seap into the water supply.
What do you mean you don't know all the chemicals being used for fracking? Haven't you done your research?
Oh, we've done our research, alright. The reason many fracking chemicals go unknown is they're never actually disclosed at all, anywhere, to anyone, ever.
Fracking was explicitly made exempt from the Safe Water Drinking Act by a piece of energy legislation passed by Congress called the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This exemption allows drilling and fracking companies to inject unknown and/or toxic materials directly into, below, or adjacent to underground sources of drinking water without reporting the chemicals or the quantities of these chemicals to the government or to the public.
What about the University of Texas study that finds no connection between fracking and water contamination?
The University of Texas at Austin has withdrawn that study after an investigation revealed that the lead investigator, Charles "Chip" Groat, has financial interests in the natural gas industry, which he did not disclose in his report.(fn)Bloomberg News reported July 23, 2012 that Groat has been on the board of Plains Exploration & Production Co. (PXP) since 2007. As a board member, Groat receives 10,000 shares of restricted stock a year, as well as an annual fee, which was $58,500 in 2011 - according to company filings. Groat has since retired from his UT faculty position; Raymond Orbach, director of the Energy Institute at UT, which conducted the study, has resigned as well.3
What's in fracking fluid?
Fracking fluid is a toxic brew that consists of multiple chemicals. Industry can pick from a menu of up to 600 different kinds. Typically, 5 to 10 chemicals are used in a single frack job, but a well can be fracked multiple times, and each gas play consists of tens to hundreds of thousands of wells - driving up the number of chemicals ultimately used. Many fracking chemicals are protected from disclosure under trade secret exemptions. Studies of fracking waste have identified formaldehyde, acetic acids, and boric acids, among hundreds of others.(fn)
For each frack, 80-300 tons of chemicals may be used, selected from a menu of up to 600 *different* chemicals.

Fracking won’t work in UK says founder of fracking company Cuadrilla Chris Cornelius says geology is too challenging and government’s support is merely ‘soundbites’ Fracking in the UK will be impossible at any meaningful scale and will not help with the energy price crisis, the founder of the UK’s first fracking company has warned. Chris Cornelius, the geologist who founded Cuadrilla Resources, which drilled the UK’s first modern hydraulic fracturing wells in Lancashire, told the Guardian that he believed the government’s support for it is merely a “political gesture”. “I don’t think there is any chance of fracking in the UK in the near term.” He said that when Cuadrilla had operated here, it had discovered that the geology of the UK was unsuited to widespread fracking operations. “No sensible investors” would take the risk of embarking on large projects here, he said. “It’s very challenging geology, compared with North America [where fracking is a major industry].” Unlike the gas-bearing shale deposits in the US, the shale resource in the UK is “heavily faulted and compartmentalised”, making it far harder to exploit at any scale. Liz Truss, the prime minister, has made clear she supports fracking and will lift the moratorium that has been in place since 2019, though it remains to be seen where and how sites will be licensed. She has said she hopes to see gas from fracked sites as soon as six months from now. But Cornelius said that “would not happen”. Truss’s decision to give the green light to fracking “is not going to have an impact” on the UK’s energy supply, he told the Guardian in an interview. “It makes good soundbites but I can’t see anything happening,” he said. In the longer term, he said it was possible there could be a few localised operations, but they would be small and could not make a meaningful contribution to the UK’s energy needs. “They will never be at scale, because the capital costs are a huge issue,” he said.
The former Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, asked what studies had been done on the effect of fracking on aquifers. Mr Rees-Mogg referred to a 2021 report, which he said concluded that most of evidence on aquifer pollution was invented. [The report by the Royal Society recommended surveys of methane and other contaminants in groundwater before, during and after shale gas operations]. Cheaper energy The business secretary said a shale gas supply would “bring us cheaper energy”. But this has been disputed by many experts and leading Conservatives, including the now chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng. Richard Burgon, Labour, Leeds East, said fracking was being pursued by the government “in the corporate interest”. He said renewables were nine times cheaper than gas.
Scott Ritter on Likely Military Impact of Putins 300k Reservists 22Sep22 Redacted with Clayton Morris
Vladimir Putin 'will mobilise 1million civilian reservists to fight Ukraine' NOT 300,000
A source has claimed that Vladimir Putin will be allowed to call up a total of one million people, not 300,000 as officially announced. He is said to be scared to reveal the truth to Russians
Vladimir Putin has cleared the way to mobilise one million civilian reservists to fight Western-backed Ukraine, not 300,000 as officially announced, it has been claimed today.
A secret seventh article in his "partial mobilisation" presidential decree allows him to call up a total of one million people, a source told independent investigative media outlet Novaya Gazeta Europe.
The Russian President is said to be scared to reveal the truth to his citizens as he fears more dissidents will leave the country.
However, the Kremlin denied the claims, with state-owned news agency RIA citing Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov who called the report "a lie".
It comes after Putin and his defence minister Sergei Shoigu yesterday announced 300,000 Russians would be called up to fight in Ukraine.
Enlistment is underway today on a grand scale across Russia's 11 time zones, as seen in multiple videos.
Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov yesterday refused to disclose the content of the classified seventh article of the decree but admitted it related to the number of Russians to be mobilised, according to Kommersant newspaper.
The article was "for official use", he said.
Peskov added: "The only thing I can tell you...Sergei Shoigu said in his interview - 300,000 people [will be mobilised].
"We are talking about up to 300,000 people. And also, as the Minister of Defence explained, not all at once."
However, Novaya Gazeta said secret Article 7 hides the real figure which officials did not mention.
The defence ministry wanted his entire decree secret but in the end, only the seventh article was classified, it was claimed.
"The figure was corrected several times, and in the end, they settled on one million," said the Novaya Gazeta source.
Two Russian soldiers patrolling the Mariupol drama theatre, whiThe newspaper's claim is echoed by Telegram channel General SVR which said the 300,000 figure is "false".
"It is planned to mobilise 500,000 people by the end of the year and another 500,000 people by March next year," it stated.
The anti-Putin channel, which claims insider Kremlin sources, also claimed the "general estimate of losses by March next year is about 300,000 killed and wounded".
This is in addition to some 81,572 killed so far, according to the channel, which predicted in advance the mobilisation move by Putin.
Russian soldiers on a tank in Volnovakha district in the pro-RuThe Russian president will also impose "the most stringent measures to ensure mobilisation" with "a ban on movement even across the country" using police and national guards.
Dissidents will find their bank accounts blocked, preventing them from obtaining money - including those who have fled abroad.
"It is dangerous for men of military age to keep money in any bank in Russia," said the channel.
All Russian men are required to do a year's military service between the ages of 18 and 27, although university students may instead receive instruction from a military faculty alongside their chosen studies.
Kwasi Kwarteng bets the house on old ideas
Despite the hype, the mini-budget isn't all that radical
Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng. Credit: Getty
If you believe George Monbiot in The Guardian today, then Liz Truss and her Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng are about to turn Britain into a turbo-capitalist dystopia. Goodbye green and pleasant land, hello Blade Runner nightmare.
His evidence is that the government is stuffed full of free market liberals who used to work for think tanks like the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Adam Smith Institute. And he’s right: many of their alumni are now employed in Downing Street. Furthermore, Monbiot points out that these outfits are opaquely funded, that they coordinate their activities in private meetings, and hold ideological positions that fall outside of the mainstream.
However, much the same could be said of groups on the radical Left of British politics. And in neither case is any of this illegal. This is a democracy in which people are allow to challenge the status quo from either direction. Indeed, the last general election in 2019 was a choice between the two sets of radicals — and the voters turned Right.
Of course, what the voters specifically chose was Boris Johnson and his get-Brexit-done boosterism — it wasn’t a vote for Blade Runner capitalism. However, science fiction was the last thing on offer from Kwarteng in his mini-budget today. As the Shadow Chancellor, Rachel Reeves, pointed out, what we actually got was a grab-bag of dusty old ideas: income tax cuts, low corporation tax, stamp duty reductions and the acceleration of infrastructure projects. There’ll also be another tightening-up of social security provision to squeeze more people into the workforce.
There was nothing truly shocking — for instance, the abolition of the green belt or the scrapping the net zero target. As for the newly announced ‘Investment Zones’, if they turn out to much more than a re-branding of similar (and ineffective) policies from the past, I’d be flabbergasted.
If there was any novelty in Kwarteng’s mini-budget, it’s that he’s dusted-off so many of these clichéd measures — and thrown them at a faltering economy — at the same time. There’s also zero embarrassment about the fact that these are intended as incentives for the already wealthy. Indeed, the scrapping of the levy on bankers’ bonuses and the refusal to impose further windfall taxes on energy company super-profits deliberately highlights the Truss-Kwarteng approach. The same goes for the decision to muzzle the Office for Budget Responsibility: absolutely nothing must be allowed to dilute the government’s pro-growth, pro-business message.
What we’ve seen today is an expensive gamble — not on genuinely new ideas, but on the old idea that the already wealthy will create more wealth if only they receive enough encouragement from the state. This isn’t quite what the Left caricature as ‘trickle-down economics’, but it does presuppose that the rich and powerful will return the favour and mobilise their wealth to get the economy growing again.
If they don’t, and this experiment leaves nothing behind but a further mountain of public debt, then consequences will be far-reaching. It will be a disaster for Britain of course — and an open goal for Keir Starmer at the next election. We can also expect an almighty ideological backlash within the Conservative Party.
If big business thinks it can simply take the government’s money without coming through for the British economy, then it is making a suicidal mistake.
The Crown Estate: The mysterious property empire behind Queen Elizabeth II
One of the largest property groups in Europe is directly tied to Queen Elizabeth II. Strictly speaking, the 95-year-old monarch doesn't own it. But neither does the government, making it complex legally.
Regent Street is one of London's best-known thoroughfares. The 1.3-kilometer (0.8-mile) stretch intersects the districts of Soho and Mayfair in the heart of the city's famous West End. It is lined with well-known shops, bars and restaurants.
As commercial real estate goes, it is about as prime as it gets. Remarkably, practically every square inch of the street is owned by a single company: The Crown Estate.
This is clearly not just any old enterprise. As well as vast tracts of central London, The Crown Estate owns property all across the UK, from castles and cottages to agricultural land and forests plus retail parks and shopping centers. It owns more than half the UK's entire seashore, giving it hugely valuable auction rights for offshore commercial activity, such as wind farms.
Administering real estate worth at least £14.1 billion (€16.4 billion, $17.8 billion), it is one of Europe's largest property groups. The question of who exactly owns the real estate empire is not a straightforward one, though.
The Crown Estate's profits
"The Crown Estate belongs to the reigning monarch 'in right of the Crown,' that is, it is owned by the monarch for the duration of their reign, by virtue of their accession to the throne," the company explains on its website. "But it is not the private property of the monarch — it cannot be sold by the monarch, nor do revenues from it belong to the monarch."

It also makes clear that the British government also does not "own" The Crown Estate, which is registered as a corporation sole and managed by an independent organization. The royal family is not involved in its governance.
There is also a distinction between the wealth of The Crown Estate and the queen's own personal wealth. For example, she is the owner of Balmoral and Sandringham Castles, which she inherited. According to the May 2021 edition of The Sunday Times Rich List, Queen Elizabeth II has a personal net worth of £365m. A whopping £100 million of that alone accounts for the queen's family's personal stamp collection, known as the Royal Philatelic Collection.
While The Crown Estate ownership question itself is not easily defined, it is clear that the business does well. In its most recent accounts for the financial year 2019/2020 (up until March 31, 2020), it reported record profits of £345 million. While results for 2020/21 have not been reported yet, it is clear that the pandemic has had an impact. Prolonged lockdowns meant several of The Crown Estate's commercial tenants owed it millions in rent.
However, there has been more good news than bad recently. An auction earlier this year for seabed rights for six new offshore wind farms could potentially bring huge revenues. Several major oil consortiums purchased option fees which when combined could mean up to £8.8 billion in revenues for The Crown Estate over the next decade.
The Crown Estate's profits are given every year to the British government, and the company says its clear purpose is "to create lasting and shared prosperity for the nation."

The company owns the foreshore and seabed around England and Wales, giving it lucrative auction rights for windfarms
However, 25% of the profits are given back to the queen and the royal family as part of the Sovereign Grant, which is used to fund the royal family itself on an annual basis. For example, this year's figure of £85.9 million is 25% of The Crown Estate's profits in 2018/19. So that means the queen's own personal fortunes are directly connected to the performance of The Crown Estate.
Conquest and colonialism
Laura Clancy is a lecturer at Lancaster University and is the author of the forthcoming book "Running the Family Firm: How the Monarchy Manages its Image and Our Money." She says The Crown Estate "reproduces their power" and argues that the royal family escapes appropriate scrutiny for its inherited wealth at a time of rising global inequality, particularly in the area of property ownership.
"There is a lot of talk generally about inequality, particularly around the elites and 'the 1%' and how much of global wealth they are taking," she told DW. "And often the monarchy is not part of that conversation. I think of them as 'The Firm,' I think of them as a corporation."
Referring to The Crown Estate, she said: "When you look at the list of what they own, it's crazy. The amount of London that they own, the seabed and the foreshore, all these kind of things."

Blinken accuses Putin of committing ‘aggression’ in Ukraine; Russia blames US for ‘Russophobia’
Thursday, 22 September 2022 7:28 PM
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has accused Vladimir Putin of committing “aggression” in Ukraine and demanded the Russian president be held to account for it, while Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the US and its allies are victims of "Russophobia."
"The very international order we've gathered here to uphold is being shredded before our eyes," Blinken told the UN Security Council in a special session on Wednesday as leaders met at the United Nations in New York.
"We cannot -- we will not -- let President Putin get away with it," Blinken declared.
The top US diplomat accused the Russian leader of adding "fuel to the fire" with recent steps including announcing a partial mobilization in Russia, where Putin said that his country is now fighting “the entire Western military machine” in Ukraine.
“If the territorial integrity of our nation is threatened, we will certainly use all the means that we have to defend Russia and our people,” Putin said in his address on Wednesday. He called up reservists and planned referendums in Russian-held Ukrainian territory.
Blinken said it was critical to show that "no nation can redraw the borders of another by force."
"If we fail to defend this principle when the Kremlin is so flagrantly violating it, we send the message to aggressors everywhere that they can ignore it, too,” he added.
Lavrov denounced US accusations.
"There's an attempt today to impose on us a completely different narrative about Russian aggression as the origin of this tragedy," Lavrov told the Security Council.
He accused the US and its allies of "Russophobia.”
"The United States and their allies with the connivance of international human rights organizations have been covering the crimes of the Kiev regime," Lavrov said.
This came after US President Joe Biden warned Putin against thoughts of using nuclear weapons in Ukraine, adding that it would “change the face of war unlike anything since WWII.”
Biden said on Friday Moscow would become a global pariah if it uses weapons of mass destruction on the former Soviet state.
In an interview with a US media outlet, Biden was asked what his message to Putin would be if he felt the best way to operate in Ukraine was to use nuclear or chemical weapons against Kiev's forces.

Russian president announces partial military mobilization: Report
Wednesday, 21 September 2022
Russia's President Vladimir Putin has announced a partial military mobilization in the Russian Federation, according to the Tass news agency.
In a televised address, Putin said he had signed a decree on partial mobilization, due to begin on Wednesday, stressing that he was taking necessary steps to protect Russia's sovereignty as the West is looking to "weaken" and "destroy" the country.
“We are talking about partial mobilization, that is, only citizens who are currently in the reserve will be subject to conscription, and above all, those who served in the armed forces have a certain military specialty and relevant experience,” Putin said.
The decision to partially mobilize is “fully adequate to the threats we face, namely to protect our homeland, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, to ensure the security of our people and people in the liberated territories,” he added.
The Russian president said his aim was to "liberate" east Ukraine's Donbas region, and that most people in the region did not want to return to what he called the "yoke" of Ukraine.
He also accused the West of ordering Ukraine to undermine peace talks with Moscow, saying the West would not be "happy with a peaceful" solution to the conflict.
Putin’s address to the nation came a day after four Ukrainian regions announced plans to hold referendums to join Russia in a matter of days, mirroring the move that was taken by the former Ukrainian region of Crimea in 2014, which led to its incorporation into the Russian Federation.
Speaking on Tuesday, the pro-Russian leaders of the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, the southern region of Kherson, and the southeastern region of Zaporizhzhia announced that they were planning to hold the votes as soon as Friday.
Also in 2014, Donetsk and Luhansk, which together form the Donbass region, broke away from Ukraine. Back in February, Putin signed a decree recognizing the two regions as “independent republics.”
Later that month, Russia launched "a special military operation" aimed at “demilitarizing” the Donbass. Announcing the operation, Putin said the mission was aimed at “defending people who for eight years are suffering persecution and genocide by the Kiev regime.”
The operation then expanded to involve Kherson and Zaporizhzhia.

This video has around 30 minutes of Ben's over-long questions edited out
Ben Norton's Multipolar world blovodcast
after World War One, America had already achieved its industrial dominance. And it was after World War One that America said, ok, now our protective tariffs have enabled us to outproduce all the other countries, and our protectionist agriculture especially – the most protected sector in America, has always been agriculture, since the 1930s.
Basically it said, well, now we can outproduce other countries, we can undersell them, now we can tell them to go for free trade.
And after World War Two, the Americans created the World Bank for economic impoverishment, and the International Monetary Austerity Fund.
And the World Bank’s leading objective was to prevent other countries from investing in their own food production.
The guiding line of the World Bank was, we’ve got to provide infrastructure for building up plantation agriculture in Latin America, and Africa, and other countries, so that they will grow tropical export crops, but they cannot be permitted to grow grain or wheat to feed themselves; they must be dependent on the United States.
And so the function of free trade, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund has been to finance dependency, backed up by the American support of dictatorships throughout Latin America who agree to have client oligarchies supporting pro-American trade patterns and avoiding any kind of self-reliance, so that the United States can do what it has recently done to Russia and other countries, impose sanctions – say, well, now that you depended on us for your grain, we can now impose sanctions, and you can’t feed yourself if you don’t follow the policies we want.
That was the policy that America tried to use against China after Mao’s revolution. And fortunately for China, Canada broke that monopoly, and said, well, we’re going to sell grain to China. And China was always very friendly to Canada in those earlier decades.
So basically, free trade means no government, no socialism. It means central planning essentially by Wall Street – countries should let American firms come in, buy control of their raw materials, resources, control of their oil and gas, and mineral rights, and forests and plantations, and basically let other countries send their whole economic surplus to the United States, where it will be duly financialized to buy out other countries’ raw materials and rent yielding resources.
BENJAMIN NORTON: Yeah, and in your book, you have a very funny passage that I think really encapsulates this ideology that you’re talking about here.
You referred to Charles Wilson, who was the secretary of defense under Eisenhower in the U.S., and he was also the former CEO of General Motors.
And he famously said, “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country.” And that idea has morphed into the idea that, “What’s good for Wall Street is good for America.”
And then you note that “this merged with evangelistic U.S. foreign policy that says ‘What’s good for America is good for the world.’ And therefore the logical syllogism is clear: ‘What’s good for Wall Street is good for the world.’”
And you describe this, you link it to the new cold war, this idea that what’s good for the U.S. is good for the world and what’s good for Wall Street is good for the U.S., therefore, what’s good for Wall Street is good for the world.
You argue, “We must recognize how finance capitalism has gained power over industrial economies, above all in the United States, from which it seeks to project itself globally, led by the financialized U.S. economy. Today’s new Cold War is a fight to impose rentier-based finance capitalism on the entire world.”

How did the queen die? Inside the monarch's final moments surrounded by her family after major health battles
Cameron Carpenter & Emily Craig, 8 Sep 2022, Update: 9 Sept 2022
The Palace announced she had died 'peacefully' at Balmoral.
A look at the Queen's health problems
The 96-year-old suffered mobility problems that forced her to pull out of key events including many of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, opting to attend virtually or send senior royals in her place.
The monarch also spent one night in hospital due to a mystery illness last autumn.
From October 2021: Episodic mobility problems
The Queen had faced ongoing 'episodic mobility problems' stretching back to last autumn and used a walking stick during her final days.
In Oct 2021, six months after her husband's death, the monarch used the stick at a service at Westminster Abbey.
It marked the first time she had done so at a major public engagement.
After Prince Philip's death, the Queen had struggled to carry out many of her usual in-person duties, with her mobility problems forcing her to either pull out of events or make an appearance via video calls.
She pulled out of the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March 2022, a significant date in the royal calendar, and did not attend the Maundy Thursday service on April 14.
But she rallied to honour the Duke of Edinburgh at a memorial service on March 29, walking slowly and carefully with the aid of a stick, and holding on to the Duke of York's elbow for support.
On May 20, she missed the State Opening of Parliament for the first time in nearly 60 years, with Buckingham Palace attributing her absence to 'episodic mobility problems'.
The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge opened parliament on her behalf as Counsellors of State, with Charles reading the Queen's Speech for a historic first time.
On Aug 8, the Queen's traditional welcome to Balmoral Castle by a guard of honour was reportedly held in private. A source said this was in line with events being adapted for the monarch's comfort.
Just last week, the Queen missed the Braemar Gathering, a popular Highland Games event, held on Sept 3.
It is understood the decision was taken for the comfort of the head of state.
October 2021: Ordered bed rest
On Oct 20, 2021, after a busy autumn programme, the Queen was ordered to rest by her doctors for a few days.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said she was in 'good spirits' but disappointed, as the medical advice meant she had to cancel a two-day trip to N. Ireland.
October 2021: Hospitalised due to mystery illness
The Queen, aged 95 at the time, was secretly admitted to King Edward VII's Hospital on the afternoon of Oct 20, 2021 to undergo 'preliminary investigations'.
She was discharged the next day and 'accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days' and was said to be in 'good spirits' carrying out light duties at her desk at Windsor.
November 2021: Pulled out of events
Concern for the Queen's health mounted when she pulled out of more high-profile engagements in Nov 2021.
These included the Cop26 climate change summit in Glasgow on Nov 1 and the Festival of Remembrance on Nov 12.
Buckingham Palace said the monarch had been advised to continue to rest and to not carry out any official visits.
The Queen has faced ongoing 'episodic mobility problems' stretching back to last autumn and now uses a walking stick. In Oct 2021, six months after her husband's death, the monarch used the stick at a service at Westminster Abbey (pictured). It marked the first time she had done so at a major public engagement
She was intent on attending the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph on Nov 13, but missed this due to a sprained back.
February 2022: Covid infection
There were fears for her health when she caught Covid, testing positive on Feb 20, 2022.
The Queen, who was then triple-vaccinated, suffered from mild cold-like symptoms but said the virus left her 'very tired and exhausted'.
She carried on with light duties while self-isolating at Windsor but cancelled some virtual audiences.
June 2022: Discomfort during celebrations
On June 3, a day after thrilling crowds on the first day of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the Queen pulled out of a celebration at St Paul's Cathedral.
This was due to suffering 'discomfort' during the previous day's celebrations
The decision was considered regrettable, it is understood, but sensible due to the length of the journey, the time involved and the physical demands of the event.
She went on to miss many other Platinum Jubilee
Regime Change In Pakistan, Imran Khan Refused To Condemn Russias Invasion Of Ukraine Farooq Siddique
What Imran Khan achieved as President of Pakistan in a few years, how he was ousted by a no confidence vote after his Ukraine policies weren’t approved of, and how he has now become very popular.
Faruk also explains how the floods in Pakistan have been seen as an act of God for the bad treatment of Khan – and how appalling the present government’s response to floods has been. Pakistan: Imran Khan supporters prevent police from arresting him Imran Khan addressed a rally at the weekend at which he criticised the police’s detention of an aide. Supporters of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan gathered around his home on Monday to prevent police from arresting their leader, who has been charged under anti-terror laws. Hundreds of supporters of the cricketer-turned-politician assembled outside his hilltop mansion in the capital city of Islamabad on Monday, vowing to “take over” if he was arrested. - - - - -
Former PM Khan accuses Pakistani govt. of blocking YouTube to censor his speech Pakistan's former prime minister Imran Khan accused the government of temporarily blocking YouTube in the country on Sunday evening to prevent people from listening live to a speech he gave at a political rally. The accusation came after Pakistan's electronic media regulator late on Saturday announced a ban on the live airing of Khan's speeches because of what it called his "hate speech" against state institutions. "Imported govt blocked YouTube midway through my speech," Khan said on Twitter. A spokesman for the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority, which regulates the internet in the country, did not immediately respond to a Reuters' request for comment. Khan has been pushing for new elections in Pakistan after being ousted from power in April through a parliamentary vote. He has been delivering fiery speeches at gatherings across the country. 'Provocative statements' "Mr. Imran Khan... in his speeches/statements is continuously ... leveling baseless allegations and spreading hate speech through his provocative statements against state institutions," the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) said in its statement on Saturday. PEMRA said it was, with immediate effect, prohibiting news channels from broadcasting his speeches live, but said recorded speeches could be aired. Khan's speeches were "prejudicial to the maintenance of law and order and likely to disturb public peace and tranquility", PEMRA added. Khan has targeted a number of state institutions, including the government, the police and the country's powerful army. Khan's party had said shortly after Saturday's television ban it would go live on "500+ YouTube and Facebook channels." Pakistan's Imran Khan calls for early elections after thumping However, many social media users around Pakistan reported problems in accessing YouTube when Khan was about to address a gathering on Sunday evening in the garrison city of Rawalpindi. Khan said in his speech on Sunday that he was being censored for not accepting the current coalition government which had voted him out of power. The television ban came a day after Khan hurled threats against Islamabad's police chief and a female judge for what he claimed was the arrest and alleged torture of his close aide who is facing sedition charges. His aide had called on lower and middle ranks of the military to defy orders from the top brass. On Sunday Islamabad police booked Khan for threatening police officials and a judicial magistrate under sections of the anti-terrorism act.

Jake from ‘Landscapes for Freedom’ on a mass trespass next weekend. Landscapes of Freedom Supporting the Right to Roam across the South Downs and beyond! WORTH SAVING! Mass Trespass on Saturday 24th September “NO” TO CENTER PARCS BUILDING ON OLDHOUSE WARREN “YES” TO A PEOPLE’S FOREST, LIKE EPPING FOREST OR THE NEW FOREST Right next to Crawley is the biggest forest woodland in Sussex. Worth Forest, with Oldhouse Warren at its heart, wraps around the south eastern edge of Crawley, just as Epping Forest wraps round the north eastern edge of London. Oldhouse Warren and Worth Forest’s stretching wildness beautifully complement the happy crowdedness of lovely Tilgate Park. Yet Oldhouse Warren and most of Worth Forest are fiercely private, and nature there has been badly damaged by the past management of their owners. And now Center Parcs and the landowners plan to make big money out of it – building a holiday town of 900 lodges and big visitor attractions utterly unsuited to wild countryside & ancient woodland. This forest should be open and free to us all & a haven for nature, like Epping Forest and the New Forest. Countryside which should be ours to enjoy for free will be lost, whilst much visitors’ cash will flow into the owners’ coffers. SAY “NO” TO NATURE’S EXTINCTION Oldhouse Warren is a place of peace and delight, and home to rare and beautiful wildlife. Ravens and owls, Goshawks, Hobby falcons and even rarer raptors, need its wildness and spreading size for their hunting. Tiny birds like Firecrest and the endangered Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, dainty Redstart, Willow Warbler, Marsh Tit, Hawfinch and Spotted Flycatchers need its varied and ancient habitats to survive. Its ground nesting birds, like Woodcock & Nightjar, have some of their last Sussex refuges here in these forests. They need places where we will leave them in peace. Oldhouse Warren has one of the largest clusters of ancient trees in Worth & St Leonard’s Forests, and those forests have more than anywhere else in Sussex.
"The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is better than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it. Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will." - Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati in John Robison's Proofs of a Conspiracy, 1793.

Russia warns US against sending long-range arms to Ukraine, vows use of nukes

Russia says US crossing ‘red line’ giving Ukraine long-range HIMARS missiles
US will cross ‘red line’ if it gives Ukraine longer-range missiles: Russia

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova
Russia has warned if the United States supplies Ukraine with longer-range missiles, Washington will cross a “red line” and become “a party to the conflict,” more than six months into Moscow’s military operation in the ex-Soviet republic.
In a press conference on Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Russia “reserves the right to defend its territory.”
“If Washington decides to supply longer-range missiles to Kiev, then it will be crossing a red line, and will become a direct party to the conflict,” she warned.
Russia began its “special military operation” in Ukraine on February 24, with a declared aim of “demilitarizing” Donbas, which is made up of the Donetsk and Luhansk self-proclaimed republics. Back in 2014, the two republics, which are predominantly Russian-speaking, broke away from Ukraine, prompting Kiev to launch a bloody war against both regions.
The years-long conflict has killed more than 14,000 people, mostly in the Donbas.
Since the onset of the ongoing conflict between the two countries, the United States and its European allies have unleashed an array of unprecedented sanctions against Russia and poured numerous batches of advanced weapons in Ukraine to help its military fend off the Russian troops, despite repeated warnings by the Kremlin that such measures will only prolong the war.
The US has already provided Kiev with advanced rockets capable of hitting targets up to 80 kilometers away, while so far refusing to publicly announce it would send rockets with more than double that range.
Since the beginning of the war, the US has been providing Kiev with military aid, including at least 16 HIMARS systems, four of which arrived in August.
HIMARS is a light multiple-rocket launcher that can hit targets with precision. It is capable of launching all rockets specified in the Multiple Launch Rocket System Family of Munitions (MFOM).Its manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, says the system has a “recognized and proven range” of up to 300 kilometers.
While Kiev implores for more Western weapons, Moscow says it sent troops to prevent Ukraine being used as a platform for Western aggression and to defend Russian speakers in Donbas.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has time and again said the US is prolonging the war in Ukraine as part of what he called Washington’s efforts to maintain its global hegemony.
Russia warns US against sending long-range arms to Ukraine, vows use of nukes
Russia has warned the US against supplying long-range weapons to Ukraine, saying Moscow is determined to use nuclear arms if its existence is threatened.
Germany to give Ukraine more multiple-rocket launchers
Separately on Thursday, German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said Berlin would supply two more multiple-rocket launchers to Kiev.
“We have decided to deliver two more MARS II multiple rocket launchers including 200 rockets to Ukraine,” she told a Bundeswehr conference in Berlin.
Mars II MLRS is a German multiple-rocket launcher adopted by the Bundeswehr back in 1990. It is a certified European version of the American M270 MLRS multiple-rocket launcher.
The system, according to its manufacturer, uses the same projectiles as the M142 HIMARS, but has two containers instead of one, capable of firing 12 rockets in one salvo, rather than six.
“On top of this, we will send 50 Dingo armored personnel carriers to Ukraine,” Lambrecht said, referring to an armored vehicle the German army extensively used during NATO's military operation in Afghanistan.
Back in July, Lambrecht announced Berlin had sent three MARS II MLRS and a total of 10 PZH-2000 self-propelled guns to Ukraine from Bundeswehr warehouses.

Princess Diana's Response When She Was Asked If Prince William Should Succeed the Queen Instead of Charles
It was part of her most explosive interview ever.
Back in November 1995, Princess Diana (opens in new tab) was asked if she thought her oldest son, Prince William, should succeed Queen Elizabeth on the throne instead of his father, Prince Charles.
Diana initially dodged the question, which came during her famous BBC1 (opens in new tab) Panorama interview, noting that William was only 13 at the time and too young for that responsibility.
"My wish is that my husband finds peace of mind, and from that follows others things, yes," she finally answered.
Princess Diana (opens in new tab) always knew that her oldest son, Prince William (opens in new tab), had what it took to be a great king.
In November 1995, the late royal sat down for what would turn out to be an explosive interview with BBC1 Panorama (opens in new tab) about her divorce from Prince Charles (opens in new tab). During the interview Martin Bashir asked Diana (opens in new tab) if she thought Will, who was 13 at the time, should succeed Queen Elizabeth as the reigning monarch on the British throne. You know, as in instead of his father, Charles.
"Do you think it would make more sense in the light of the marital difficulties that you and the Prince of Wales have had if the position of monarch passed directly to your son Prince William?" Bashir asked.
"Well, then you have to see that William's very young at the moment, so do you want a burden like that to be put on his shoulders at such an age? So I can't answer that question," Diana answered, dodging the heart of the question.
"Would it be your wish that when Prince William comes of age that he were to succeed the Queen rather than the current Prince of Wales?" Bashir pressed.
"My wish is that my husband finds peace of mind, and from that follows others things, yes," Diana said.
So, there you have it.
Why Prince Charles Can Still Be King, But This Royal Had To Give Up Title
By Lauren Dubois
Prince Charles is set to inherit the throne likely within the next few years, as the heir to Queen Elizabeth II. However, some are wondering just how eligible he really is to become the King considering his marital history, when others have been forced to give up their claims to the throne in the past for a similar reason.
In the Online forum Quora, one royal fan wondered why Prince Charles was still eligible to be king despite his divorce from Princess Diana and marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles—a fellow divorcee—when his great-uncle, King Edward VIII, was forced to abdicate the throne and give up his life as a royal when he wanted to marry divorced American actress Wallis Simpson.
However, the reasoning for Charles’ eligibility can easily be explained by updated laws and social attitudes that didn’t exist in the 1930s. One user answered the question by stating that not only have the Succession to the Crown laws changed, but public expectations of the monarchy have as well.
“It looks very much like the expectations of the monarchy of themselves have changed to come into line with the expectations the public have for themselves,” the user wrote. “It also seems that the public expectation of how much the person in the role can reveal of their private selves has broadened.”
Another user went into more detail on the issue and the situation, explaining just how much things had changed, and that Charles can and still will be king because his marriage to Camilla produced “absolutely no constitutional, legal or religious impediments.”
During Edward VIII’s time, divorce was mainly considered sinful within the Church of England, especially if the divorced person was considering remarriage while their former spouse was alive. However, since times have changed—and Princess Diana is also no longer alive, Charles does not have nearly as many obstacles standing in his way.
“Times have changed very substantially since then,” the user wrote. “Socially, divorce is not considered reason for a person to be deemed socially unacceptable and nor is a divorced person re-marrying while their former partner is still alive. Charles’ former partner Diana is no longer alive, although Camilla does have a living husband. While some of the more extremist conservatives in the Church of England may not agree, the prevailing view is that divorce and re-marriage are no longer grounds for excommunication.”
