Double, Double Toil and Trouble

 

Reports today, actually rumors, that a coup may be underway in China; that Xi is under arrest. Meanwhile, Putin is threatening nuclear response to any attack on Russian territory, even as they will be conducting a referendum in the Donbass about annexing it to Russia. Zelensky calls upon NATO to nuke Putin if Putin is even “thinking” about using his own nuclear weapons.

We are spending money hand over fist on a national credit card that will surely inform future economists as to whether an economy is all psychology — if we think, we can suspend the bubble indefinitely. Pray the little child does not show up to declare “the Emporer has no clothes!”

The roulette wheel spins on and we are all in on “00”. “Round and round she goes. Where she stops, nobody knows.” Truth is, we can’t afford for it to stop. Just keep on spinning — that’s our best bet.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes

The first rule of horror stories: “Don’t answer the door!”

    This was my immediate thought with the first post advocating Ukraine invade Russia and attack Russia’s rear from the north.  I can’t read minds, but I sure think that Russia would use tactical nukes, even if they has to fire five to get just one to make a mushroom cloud.

    I think Spirit Halloween is behind all these events.   I am not sure how or why they are doing it, but those people are devious.

    The rumors about Xi are from social media accounts of Chinese activists in west, India and Nepal. So untrue. And reflection of wishful thinking. 

    Putin was warning in response to Liz Truss that nuclear action from west would be met in kind. 

    Wishful thinking seems to be all we have left. Disneyland is the new reality for our elites. 

    Disgraceful.

    What are the odds that Putin dies in a fall from a window?

    Gordon Chang says not coup, but something serious is going on.

    Imagine a wold in which people everywhere had a much lower tolerance for a$$holes in positions of power, if every capital city had a replica of the Piazzale Loreto ready for leadership adjustment.
