Phase One was psychological warfare. Phase Two is kinetic war.
This is fucking FABULOUS. THANK YOU! So much great info piecing parts together. I can’t say I can validate or verify every piece of info here but it sure resonates thoroughly with my perspective and the fact sets I’ve witnessed and gathered through my research.
Also, please check out my theory on the basis of this WW3, which I believe started a bit earlier in 2014 with the Putin’s invasion and annexation of Crimea:
That was the first piece of hot warfare in Russia’s attempt to secure itself after EuroMaidan made Putin feel the post-WW2 global security order was broken. Not acceptable to have a NATO partner directly bordering Russia apparently.
The war in Ukraine is hugely important to Putin of course but far more is the hybrid warfare he wages against the West, primarily the USA., with Flynn Trump Manafort Prince and Bannon key allies, traitors against the USA. Without any chance at winning a direct military confrontation, total war, and especially mutually assured nuclear destruction strategically, Putin hopes to sustain autocratic rule and Imperial expansionism by corrupting and subverting the US and the world’s faith in Liberal Democratic governance with it.
Winning against these a-holes requires exposing their antics as you’re doing, developed strategies to inoculate us against the psych warfare, and counter with a compelling and competent alternative vision and message. We need to get law enforcement to do its job. And we need to NOT fall into the trap of adding gas to an already raging fire that threatens to engulf our governance and freedoms with it.
With that in mind, I absolutely adore Tom Nichol’s piece on “Fight Like Adults”:
Ginni Thomas was a recently republican-cured, 'recovered' cult member (LifeSpring) when she met her BFF. Steve Hassan on Twitter has a ridiculous video posted of her from 1986 where she is supposed to be speaking about cult recovery but says multiple times that she does not want to be too hard on cults- What is going on in this Country?
hey guys I really like what I am seeing here. I took you all wrong when i saw one of your other posts. That meeting with Flynn and all those others was nothign new. Putin had been courting radical American separatists movements for a long time. Like the Texas and Cali guys were sending over their "delegations".
Flynn with his background made him a perfect agent for the expansion of Bulshi-Fascism in the USA. Flynn working with Watkins to spread Watksins dream of a a Fascist USA too. Man when Roger Stone reached out to the Qanon network I was worried. It has blown my mind that it's gotten this far.
btw irl i met the guy that planned the current russian takeover of ukraine and their other future plans. you shoudl read on this, it will give you a greater idea of their plans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Karaganov
From Politico: "The Senate’s ambitions to sanction Russia shrank so quickly this week that instead, Vladimir Putin is being confronted only with a sternly worded statement. As the U.S. warns of a potentially imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine, senators paused their flailing negotiations over punishments for Moscow — designed to deter military action that some see as inevitable — and instead released a symbolic bipartisan statement affirming Ukraine’s sovereignty as they prepare for a week-long recess." https://www.politico.com/news/2022/02/15/senate-poised-to-settle-for-symbolic-rebuke-as-russia-sanctions-talks-fizzle-00009096
When you have groups and countries like Russia engaged in military grade digital warfare and a population willing to believe ridiculous conspiracy theories and obvious lies, Russia doesn’t need actual kompromat to achieve its goals. It can make up outragoues lies and engage in a relentless assault of digital warfare against citizens of democracies.
"His slogan “Local Action has a National Impact” is a barely concealed euphemism for domestic terrorism."
Is there anything he and Trump says that isn't? Euphemistic terrorism and fractal fascism all the way down.
This is useful, Jim.
Hey Jim, is this you on twitter or someone larping as you @jimbostewartson?

Incredible work. Crist. Hope you have Chairman Benny Thompson on speed dial, man. Dangerous times. Get the words out. Peace

This lays it out comprehensively and clearly. I appreciate your in-depth research, expert knowledge, and courage. Thank you for all you do to inform and alert. Much gratitude for your tenacity, sacrifices, and dedication to democracy.
JFC Jim. After reading this I sat quietly and let about 10 various emotions zing around my cerebrum. Trippy. So, the emotions have all kind of rolled around, crashed into each other, and gone on to wherever they go. Except Anger. The Anger is prominent. So much pain, suffering, and death. Wow. Man, am I livid. Thanks. 💜💜💜💜✊🏻🇺🇸 Jesus, where are my cigarettes !!!!!!!!!
