French Historian Says World War III Has Already Begun

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News.,

A French historian who accurately predicted the fall of the Soviet Union over a decade in advance says that World War III has already begun as a result of the conflict in Ukraine.

The comments were made by Emmanuel Todd, one of France’s leading intellectuals, during an interview with the Le Figaro newspaper.

“It is evident that the conflict, initially a limited territorial war, has evolved into a global economic confrontation between the whole West on one side, and Russia, backed by China, on the other. It has become a world war,” Todd said.

Todd added that “the resistance of the Russian economy is pushing the U.S. imperial system toward the abyss” and that Biden must “hurry” to rescue a “fragile” America.

According to the historian, U.S. control of the world financial system is at risk because the Russian economy’s resistance to sanctions is pushing “the American imperial system” toward the precipice,” with Russia still able to rely on China for monetary backing.

Todd says America “cannot withdraw from the conflict, they cannot let go,” because it has no exit strategy and the stakes are too high. ... Continue reading >>>


5G Has Its Day in Court

A few days ago, I spent a day and a half in Court 73 of the Royal Courts of Justice, listening to a Judicial Review in which Michael Mansfield KC challenged the Government for its “failure to give adequate information to the public about the risks of 5G and to explain the absence of a process for investigation of any adverse health effects”. These  failures are deemed to be in breach of Section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 due to positive obligations to protect human life, health and dignity as stated in Articles 2 and 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

I was fascinated by Mr. Mansfield’s take on these issues. Those of us who have concerns about the adverse health effects of radio-frequency radiation (RFR) such as 5G usually argue that the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection) safety exposure guidelines relied upon by Government to protect our health are woefully inadequate because they only recognise the heating of tissue as potentially harmful and because many thousands of well-conducted studies have shown harm below the heating threshold. ...

Norwegian Shipping Company bans electric vehicles on its vessels

Norwegian ferry company Havila Krystruten is a coastal line that offers regular services between the coastal cities of Bergen and Kierkenes, docking at many small ports on the way for loading and unloading passengers and gods. It is a similar operation to Scotland's Calodonian McBraine line which serves small communities that are difficult to access by road on the Scottish west coast and western isles. 

In January Havila Krystruten dropped a bombshell in a country that has the highest proportion of electric cars on its roads of anywhere in the world, when the company announced that it will no longer carry electric or electrified vehicles on its ships. This will be mightily off - pissing for many drivers who want to take their cars from one end of Norway's long Atlantic coast to the other avoiding an onerous road trip.

Havila Krystruten cited fire safety as the main reason for its decision. The company says that its ships are not equipped to fight  lithium-ion battery fires at sea. While governments and scientists have been telling us electric cars are the future, they have omitted to mention that lithium is a highly unstable element and trivial damage to batteries can cause them to spontaneously combust. But a lithium fire is no ordinary fire, it is a nuclear reaction  which can burn without oxygen and cannot be put out by conventional methods

“This is a pure safety assessment, and the conclusion of the risk analysis shows that a possible fire in fossil vehicles will be able to be handled by the systems and the crew we have on board,” said Bengt Martini, the company’s managing director, as translated by Google. “A possible fire in electric, hybrid or hydrogen cars will require external rescue efforts and could put people on board and the ships at risk.”

“We will never compromise the safety of passengers and crew. When we get such a clear conclusion on the risk assessment, the decision is very simple,” CEO Arild Myrvoll said.

The problem is particularly noteworthy in Norway, where more than 80 per cent of all vehicles sold in the country in 2022 were fully electric, making this decision a likely nuisance for passengers. However it is likely to become less of a problem when the Norwegian governments withdraws its huge subsidies on electric vehicles and consumers have to pay yhe full cost themselves
