    Democrats on trajectory to losing elections = election interference if Republicans lose it there was no election interference



    101 of skirting sanctions, buy from friendly neighboring countries, but of course, for gullible idiots, there is an endless stream of propaganda BS

    The unnamed corporation is probably bs as well.

    Something for the absolute morons.

    "We were thrown into landings, they told us to dig in, we had three shovels per battalion"
    "All survivors and new arrivals
    are grouped into new battalions and thrown to the front to close the line of defense," he said.
    ^ If that doesn't make you feel good about going back to the front line. Infantry most likely digging with knifes since they're weren't enough shovels. Officers run when the shelling hits..

    That means all the current planned and future planned deliveries of $$$€€€pesosyuanetc, HIMARS, MIMARS, FUMARS, FUBARS(error error delete), M777, M888, M999, V1(error error delete), V2(oh my god you dirty mind you), starlink, uplink, uber, facebook, twitter are now off the table?
    Just a traffic map of Moscow for the Ukrops troops to handle the increased traffic due to the multiple brigades of NATO Ukrop troops rolling in at the same time is needed?

    I mean really can you actually be that stupid or that desperate for a seminazi win i mean real nazis had at least good tailor and considered Slavic nazis an useful idiots. The more entire NATO&Co plows into the dirt the more they are screaming not so high eagle not so high.... jesus f. christ this propaganda shit is getting pathetic to the bone...

    Oh just to add just got the latest intel on Ruskies:
    Don't expect to hear anything from the Kremlin for the next 24 hours.
    VVPutin will be very busy on his Commodore 64 hacking the US elections so Republicans win big.
    Stolen from another forum too good not to be shared with patriots in the West. It wasn't Sinclair LGBT spectrum but Commodore muscular x64 with its big sturdy joystick....

    So at the UN, the USA and Ukraine two times voted against a resolution condemning Nazism. Results of the second vote

    Claiming its just Russian disinformation. First vote happened in 2021 the second time it’s just a few days ago. Apparently they are still trying to deny the Existence of Nazis in the Ukrainian ranks...

    Long post, stay with me on this for a bit:

    Ukrainian government seizes 5 companies for "wartime production needs"


    A far more disturbing development:

    Our leaders want Canada's midget tyrant, Christian Freeland, to be the next head of ATO:


    This is the same WEF stooge that arbitrarily froze the bank accounts of Canadian protesters and people who sent a few bucks to them in support.

    (Yeah, zerohedge, but the source article is a paywalled NYT piece: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/04/world/europe/nato-next-secretary-general.html )

    This has been in the work for months:


    The World Economic Forum is more than a conspiracy theory at this point. The Davos self-appointed "leaders and their Dr. Evil leader really are hell-bent on installing their drones in every government and organization around the world.


    6zyuxe.jpg


    They've put dozens of their peeps in Canada, and the recent spate of Draconian measures for our northern friends is well-documented:

    Here is the evidence, in Klaus Schwab's own words:



    It almost raises the question if the Ukrainian conflict is being promoted to help the WEF gain even more control.

    How in Heaven's name we even consider putting a drone like Freeland in charge of NATO is mystifying. Perhaps we need to take another look at the pro-war leaders and bureaucrats in DC to see if they have been "penetrated", to use Schwab's vernacular.

    Remember Schwab is the architect of the "Great Reset", and he isn't getting any younger.

    From the WEF site:

    "The Great Reset
    "The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world" - Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum."

    Quick backgrounder on the evil genius, from good old RB. Worth a listen



    Enough for one post. It's interesting to poke around the backgrounds of some of the people leading the current global shitshow. Starts to look like Ukraine is just a piece in a much larger puzzle.

    A simple realization is - who the hell is this Klaus Schwab guy. He went to school for engineering apparently, starts a little club called the "World Economic Forum" and a bunch of the worlds richest and most powerful people manage show up? Kind of strange, unless he happens to work for the most powerful people in the world. If I started my own "World Economic Forum", I could maybe get a few ladies from the HOA to show up.

    So it becomes apparent that Klaus is just a "front man" for the globalist western bankers. The people that don't want their own name(s) flashing around in the media. The people that that want you to "own nothing and be happy".

    Hmm, don't quite see how nationalizing these enterprises would make any more efficient at 'wartime production needs' its likely just back room power games to strip some oligarchs of power. This Communist ideals of siezing folks assets sure is popular with the Ukrainian elites both in Canada and Ukraine

    How about the Ohio Class Sub that just left Gibraltar heading into the Med, Black Sea anyone.


    We usually try to keep them hidden. There was another that made a show of force by popping up in the Persian Gulf or something. We don't have that many of em, a few are in the shop and Columbias won't be online until 2027 at a minimum.



    Their value is in the enemies not knowing where they are. Med has enough deep areas to hide out in, but putting one in the Black Sea is weapons-grade stupid. We got bent out of shape (rightfully) about Cuba in '62 and they want to park a boomer in the Black Sea? Besides, we can put them closer to Moscow up north. Maybe this is Austin's oe State's idea of "getting in Ivan's face", as Obama might say.

    In other things relevant, here's a vid from 2 years ago that shows some amateurs building a plane (drone) from chicom parts that did a 200km autonomous trip over water and landed within meters of target:



    that stuff the Iranians are cranking out might as well be these, upscaled a bit with a payload. That's more than enough to cross the strait from China to Taiwan. Imagine a few thousand of those as a first wave (used if for no other purpose than to deplete defensive missiles and ordnance). Cheap too. I'm not an RC aircraft aficianado, but a cursory glance indicates that plane + support tracking and receiving equipment is in the $1-2k range.

    Wonder how many Banggood orders go to Iran?

    It's pretty impressive what hobbyists have set up with flying planes and quads:



    Not even sure how to defend against that, unless you could detect their command and control frequencies and overpower them.



    10km, no problem.

    The next battlefields will have all kinds of crap flying overhead.

    Once they all get thermal, hard to hide :/

    Most drones can be readily equipped with thermal. Even if you buy a drone that doesn't have it the effort to install it is pretty minimal. The real issue is the quality of the thermal that is available. Higher quality IR falls under ITAR so it can be harder to get and more expensive. The lower quality with a very small SWAP requirement is easily obtained.

    Once an opposing force can detect the command and control frequencies, they would probably have the capability to locate the source of the command and control then destroy them.

    The secret is being able to hide in plain sight. That will be difficult but not impossible.

    The use of smaller/ non-mil (or rather non-high-end MIC) drones in Ukraine previews the future of war.



    If this vid is accurate, Xi is gearing up for all out war in his lifetime (he's 69)


    Maybe Ukraine is a testbed for toys from both sides?

    I can't imagine Xi letting Russia lose Ukraine (the eastern parts they want). Neocons will go after Russia proper if victorious. A non-communist Russia opens up northern and western fronts for a global war with China.

    He gets into Ukraine about an hour in.

    That was a great episode. Mark Turner gets into it as mentioned. He's been there 5 times since February and his opinion has changed since then. A Boots on the Ground perspective. The Overwatch Foundation is a "straight up" organization.

    One thing folk overestimate is the jamming capability--effective distance , detecting the sender is on other hand not that hard

    Other is how widespread AI and machine vision is now days , one of the drones we sell for like 15-20k $ (with no made in china parts) has thermal, frequency hopping and , AI machine recognition so can fly for most of the time 'radio silent' only sends back once its found a target and its only question of programming when it will do the whole mission without input . (Chinese equivalent is likely to be had for 8k $ without the AI and frequency hopping, but Chinese could add that if a customer ordered for less than 1k $.)
    Thermals are now becoming quite common on civilian drones over 4k $

    Israelis are already offering individual personnel kill drones based on commercial racing drones. Low level AI is the game changer not the drones themselves

    Sometime you have to ask how they can get these assessments ,but then you remember Kabul .....

    Russian retreat from Kherson city sets stage for more hard combat
    Washington Post - Nov 10, 2022
    U.S. Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday night that 20,000 to 30,000 Russian forces remained on the western bank of the river and that it would take time for them to withdraw. But he, too, saw “initial indicators” that the retreat was underway, he said.
    “This won’t take them a day or two,” Milley said, speaking at an event at the Economic Club of New York. “This is going to take them days and maybe even weeks to pull those forces south of that river.”

    5:00 on 11th November , all troops left the right bank, ok skip the part the with gear or weapons , that is likely BS anything that couldn't move under its own power was probably left. So before ink was dry on WAPO article or Milley got sobered up from the afterparty
    ---
    The Ministry of Defense reported on the completion of the withdrawal of troops from Kherson
    Kommersant (machine translation) - Nov 11, 2022
    The Ministry of Defense reported that at 5:00 Moscow time, the transfer of Russian troops to the left bank of the Dnieper was completed. As the agency clarifies, not a single piece of military equipment and weapons was left on the right bank.
    The department reports that the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried at night to disrupt the transportation of civilians and the transfer of troops to the left bank of the Dnieper. River crossings were hit five times by HIMARS rockets.
    “All Russian military personnel crossed over, no losses of personnel, weapons, equipment and materiel of the Russian group were allowed,” the Ministry of Defense said.

    The existence of the cap would give India, China and other major buyers of Russian crude leverage to push down the price they pay to Moscow, Yellen said. Russian oil "is going to be selling at bargain prices and we're happy to have India get that bargain or Africa or China. It's fine," Yellen added.

    So Europe gets bent over, and India, China and Africa get cheap oil/energy. So the current Secretary of Treasure is just fine with it...

    The existence of the cap would give India, China and other major buyers of Russian crude leverage to push down the price they pay to Moscow, Yellen said. Russian oil "is going to be selling at bargain prices and we're happy to have India get that bargain or Africa or China. It's fine," Yellen added.

    So Europe gets bent over, and India, China and Africa get cheap oil/energy. So the current Secretary of Treasure is just fine with it...
    maybe Yellen can follow the money and move to India and try to fuck things up there, instead of here.
