I am not a fan of #PopeFrancis however it seems to me that the Pope is the only leader who has the courage to admit that the blame for the war in #Ukraine is not attributable only to the #Russians. . It is, in truth, a war provoked by the USA and its closest ally (G.B)...
with the servile and masochistic acquiescence of the Europeans. I am ashamed of the low political and personal level of European leaders, and I fear that their stupid servility and the arrogant will of the Anglo-Saxons to continue to dominate the world...
alone are leading us towards a global catastrophe.
The thing that angers me the most today is how the MSM report who is responsible for the terrorist acts against the #Nordstream1 and #NordStream2 pipelines:

US military aircraft circled Nord Stream incident site in September

Flightradar24 showed an unidentified aircraft that did not even have a helicopter icon hovering over the site.
However, the aircraft's 24-bit ICAO code included in the description makes it possible to establish the model, which is the US military's Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk. The code is verified through open resources that collect data on military aircraft.
The US helicopter is also shown by the aircraft tracking service to have flown into the area of loitering over the Nord Stream pipelines from Gdansk, Poland.

1- #German Producer Price Inflation came as a shocker number this morning (+7.9% m-o-m vs 2.4% est., +45.8% y-o-y) ⚠️

This is a HUGE challenge for its global competitive position. The US, China and Japan are on DIFFERENT trajectories Image
2- NB: August was the PEAK in Gas and Power prices. So for September, this number likely comes DOWN

However, it likely remains in uncomfortable territory, as many companies HEDGE their energy exposure

There, higher gas/power prices only hit once these hedge roll off Image
3- The pressure on Eurozone corporate earnings remains UNDERESTIMATED

Today, Austrian Chemicals company Lenzing profit warned on WEAKER demand and HIGHER input cost

This "Sticky Dough" account from Kiev, set up in February '22, cuts to the chase and has a straight-up old-school Azov badge in his profile pic. Wolfsangel plus Sonnenrad. Image
And here's a Petlyura fan account with a single Wolfsangel and two Balkenkreuz's. It's worth noting the handle starts with "oberstu" in, Obersturmbannfuehrer? That would mix a couple of historical periods, but I get the idea. 🤨 Image
"Ukraine ueber alles, bitch" says even more more than that Wolfsangel over there. 🧐 Image

Well... that requires a clarification. Lest people think the #German government hadn't spent two decades working on the country's demise.(/) @Halsrethink @ektrit @jeuasommenulle @nglinsman @Ed___________0 @petunianelsole @LorenaLuVi @andrepaltry @AlessandroPonz4 @eshow1969
"Competitive advantage" comes from "Competition", i.e. trying to be on average better or at least adequate in a game where may players are involved and where everyone sees everyone else. Think "bicycle race". (/)
But it is not enough to be adequate on a STATIC framework: there are ups and downs, hills and turns. So there is an element of foresight and tradeoffs needed. Time lags are also EXTREMELY important. Look up #OODA Loop for reference. (/)

1. Yesterday, during the #Economic #Forum in #Karpacz #Poland, Jaroslaw #Kaczynski uttered categorical words: "Western #Europe is culturally alien to us".

Let us take Kaczynski's words as an opportunity to recall an extremely important thread.

Let us recount what he said.
2. You can see #Kaczynski during discussion panel together with MEPs @ZdzKrasnodebski and Ryszard Legutko, his two main informal advisors on ideological and international issues.

"The threat to our sovereignty from the West is greater than from the East." - claimed Krasnodebski.
3. A lot of attention has been paid to #Kaczynski's shoes, but - let's face it - while embarrassing, that's not what's most important

I had an interesting conversation on #Polish-#Hungarian relations yesterday under #ChathamHouse rule. I would like to share my key conclusion without further details. It will be highly disturbing from a #Polish perspective, but may contribute to a reflection process.
#Polish foreign & security policy talks from an intellectual and moral high ground to previously more #Russia-friendly partners, especially #Germany, because PL & the Baltic states correctly predicted Russia's aggressive behaviour,
while #German & other Western European stakeholders were reluctant to give credit for their correct analysis. As disturbing this lessoning behaviour might be from a German perspective, history demonstrated that #Poland & Baltics have a better understanding of #Russia ...

Part II: Between 1934 and 1937 Fraenkel wrote essays that were published in the exile journal “Sozialistische Warte” of the underground group #ISK. In 1936 he started working on his “The Dual State” manuscript, where he critically analyzed the national socialist regime. (22/38)
In this book, Fraenkel, unpacks decisions of the #German courts and the development of #judicial practice, to develop his central theory that the legal-political system of National Socialist Germany consisted of a “prerogative state” and a “normative state”. (23/38)
The prerogative state was the realm of arbitrariness and official power, against which citizens enjoyed no legal protection (represented by the Gestapo and the SS). The normative state protected the legal order as it is expressed in legislations and court decisions. (24/38)

SCOTT RITTER: Phase Three in #Ukraine
No amount of western military aid has been able to prevent #Russia from achieving its military objective of liberating the entire territories of both #Lugansk and #Donetsk as Phase Three begins.
#Russia’s “Special Military Operation”, which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. Despite stiffer than expected #Ukrainian resistance (bolstered by billions of dollars of western military assistance and accurate, real-time battlefield intelligence by the U.S. and..
... other #NATO members) #Russia is winning the war on the ground, and in a big way.
After more than ninety days of incessant #Ukrainian propaganda, echoed mindlessly by a complicit western mainstream media that extolls the battlefield successes of the Ukrainian armed forces..

In unrelated news, Thorsten Kuntz, the CEO of #Rheinmetall , a weapons manufacturer that agreed to supply weapons to #Ukraine and bearer of #German/ #NATO secrets went missing earlier this month, only to be found chemically "intoxicated" after 4 days. (1/4)
I have some questions:

1. Where did Herr Kuntz drink water from (3 days without water and you're kaputt), in the four days that he was missing?

2. What did Herr Kuntz eat in the 4 days that he was missing? (2/4)
3. Where did Herr Kuntz sleep in the four days that he was missing?

4. Is it not the case that important people, military secret bearers, are protected/ supervised/ monitored by the secret service? (3/4)

1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

Thinking about the lovely #German #Emma letter from “academics,” etc floating around& I felt I should share something I have elsewhere.

I wish to share this wonderful video with you from the groundbreaking band from the 70s+ Kraftwerk— #Europe Endless.

If you know the band you know how much they believe in the idea of Europe, of openness, and the EU and are always forward thinking.

I took this name for the basis of my forthcoming research project which, ironically, examines external threats from Russia &how it was causing the
EU to forget itself, to lose its values.

Sadly, the war put the project on halt for the moment. However, during the war we have seen glimpses where Europe has remembered its founding values again. #Europe is at its absolute best when it stands its ground together, side by side,
