Image: Germany halts Nord Stream 2 pipeline project with Russia over Ukraine incursion, putting citizens at risk of freezing

(Natural News) For years, Europe and especially Germany have become less reliant on fossil fuels for their energy and more dependent on expensive and unreliable “green” energy, which has come at a price.

As the green energy systems fail to produce enough to satisfy demand, the same countries have had to reinvest in fossil fuels in order to power their economies and heat homes in the winter. Shortages brought about by insane COVID pandemic lockdowns have led to dramatically higher energy prices, and now the situation has become even more critical following Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine.

To reverse a decade of dumb energy policy, Germany, during the Trump administration, agreed to take part in a massive pipeline project with Russia called Nord Stream 2, in order to allow the latter to provide natural gas.

But this never made much sense from a security standpoint, given a) Germany is a legacy NATO member; and b) NATO supposedly exists to counter Russia. As president, Trump brought up that point several times, much to the chagrin of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other European leaders.

Turns out he was right, of course: With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Germany responded by suspending Nord Stream 2, but in doing so is likely cutting off the German people from an energy resource that cannot quickly be replaced long-term.


Bill Gates Had to Admit Failure, Natural Immunity is Gold Standard

from The Daily Expose 25 February, 2022

During the “Get Well Soon: Finding a Way Out of the Pandemic” session of the 58th Munich Security Conference, Bill Gates set the scene: “Well the, uh, you know, sadly the virus itself … uh, is a type of vaccine … And it’s done a better job … than we have with vaccines.”

Most rational people would have assumed Mr. Gates’ admission that the “virus” – or if you follow “the Bill Gates science”, the “vaccine,” the two being interchangeable according to Gates – had run its natural course and there was nothing more to say on “finding a way out of the pandemic.”  But it seems that those who feel the need to allow Gates to speak disregarded his all-important opinion as the session continued for another hour.

In the following text, words from Gates’ “scene setter” remarks are shown in bold italics.

“Well, the, uh, you know, sadly the virus itself particularly, the variant called omicron, uh, is a type of vaccine – that is it creates both B cell and T cell immunity. And it’s done a better job of getting out to the world population than we have with vaccines.”

“Sadly”?  Did Gates invoke the word “sadly” in response to US insurance companies reporting a 40% increase in deaths occurring in working-age people between the ages of 18 and 64 since the start of Gates’ “vaccine” roll-out?

Did Gates invoke “sadly” when UK actuaries reported that in the “year of the vaccine” more people were dying in the less vulnerable age groups than during the “year of the pandemic.”?

Did Gates invoke “sadly” when towards the end of last year deaths among UK children, since they were offered his “vaccine,” were significantly higher than the five-year-average?  No.  Because the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (“BMGF”) is a primary funder of the UK’s Medicine & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (“MHRA”).

BMGF also owns major shares in Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna; has given substantial funds to Oxford University, the home of AstraZeneca; and, is in partnership with the Serum Institute of India, GAVI and COVAX – suggesting the “vaccination” of children, or anyone, against the “virus” has absolutely nothing to do with health, but everything to do with money, corruption, and power.

The ”virus” is a “type of vaccine”.  A few obvious questions arise.  Firstly, if the “virus” is a type of “vaccine,” then it follows the “vaccine” is a type of “virus” – why are they injecting people with the “virus” and expecting people to believe they will “get well soon”?  Secondly, why did governments spend billions on Gates’ “vaccine” to inoculate against the “virus” which – assuming it had been released into the population in the first instance – cost nothing to administer, except for the costs to develop the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, of course? And, looking to the future, why would anyone give Gates money do it again?

Immunity after infection from the virus, in other words natural immunity, creates “both B cell and T cell immunity.” The Covid injections target the spike protein and only the spike protein, they do not target the whole virus.  Immunology and virology 101 have taught us over a century that natural immunity confers protection against a respiratory virus’s outer coat proteins, and not just one, e.g. the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein.  As Dr. Aditi Bhargava and many others have consistently and repeatedly said, natural immunity is the gold standard.  Even Chris Whitty admitted natural immunity is far superior to vaccine induced immunity.


How Corporate Monopolies Steal Our Freedom and Corrupt Democracy

from Health Defender

The solutions to corporate monopolies begin by acknowledging there is no such thing as a market without rules.

Americans love freedom … and who doesn’t? To be happy, most of us need a sense of agency and abhor the thought of Big Brother looking over our shoulder.

But for many Americans a defining notion of freedom is being “free to choose,” a phrase made famous as the title of the 1980 book by Milton and Rose Friedman.

Much earlier, Milton Friedman’s “Capitalism and Freedom” in 1962 tethered such freedom to a particular economic system — unbridled capitalism.

It sounds like common sense. Freedom means choice in the market, and we’ve bought it — literally and figuratively — often blinding us to the obvious: Such freedom is conditional. It is real only when markets offer us numerous options, and we have enough income to seal the deal.

Unfortunately, both conditions are threatened, even ripped away, when a handful of corporations dominate whole sectors of our economy and then use their power to gain political advantage.

Famous Athlete Demands Investigation: Why Are So Many Players Collapsing on the Field

from RAIR Foundation

Matt Le Tissier felt a responsibility to speak out after a 5-fold increase in sudden cardiac and unexplained deaths among FIFA players in 2021. British soccer legend and sports commentator Matt Le Tissier spoke out during an interview with Oracle films about the disturbing amount of athletes who have recently collapsed or died on the playing field. 
He had never seen anything like it in the 17 years he had played the sport. The famous athlete is calling for an investigation into the cause of athletes failing health, most of whom have received the Covid “vaccines.” Matt Le Tissier felt a responsibility to speak out after a 5-fold increase in sudden cardiac and unexplained deaths among FIFA players in 2021. 
He accused leaders who ignore this disturbing phenomenon of “gross dereliction of duty.” Le Tissier believes that fact-checkers and government officials seek to negate or discredit information supporting the theory that the mRNA injections are behind the sudden onslaught of injuries and deaths. Persecuted for Questioning the ‘Vaccine’ Le Tissier was a UK soccer legend who had a 17-year playing career with the Southampton Football Club. 
His skills on the field earned him the nickname ‘Le God’ before he left the sport and became a sports commentator, most recently with Sky Sports. As he describes in the interview, he lost that job for speaking out and drawing attention to the large numbers of unexplained sudden cardiac deaths among professional and amateur athletes worldwide. However, he has no regrets and feels it is more important to stand up for what is right than to cower to authority. Continue reading >>>


While some nations (UK, Poland, and Lithuania for example) are pushing hard for Russia to be shut out of SWIFT - the global electronic payment-messaging system - many others are anxious of executing the so-called 'nuclear option' for fear of the potential blowback.

“The EU isn’t on board with removing Russia from SWIFT for one thing because the EU isn’t on board with letting go of Russian energy,” said Erik Meyersson, a Stockholm-based senior economist covering the Eurozone at Svenska Handelsbanken AB.

The former president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, was unhappy that some nations - Germany, Italy, and Hungary (who just happen to get significant amounts of their energy supply from Russia) rejected the call for SWIFT shutout...

As a reminder, The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, or SWIFT, is the financial-messaging infrastructure that links the world’s banks. The Belgium-based system is run by its member banks and handles millions of daily payment instructions across more than 200 countries and territories and 11,000 financial institutions. Iran and North Korea are cut off from it.
