Today was a particularly stressful day. I had to deal with another attack on my freedom of speech courtesy of YouTube's refusal to deal with satire, humor, and anything that contradicts their covid planscamdemic narrative, even if it comes from life insurance companies or French courts. As a result, YouTube has again blocked my ability to upload videos, and hence, I have been unable to record any News and Views on the situation in The Ukraine, in spite of people pointing out on my YouTube channel that I completely called that one wrong.
They're right: I was wrong, though people need to remember that News and Views does not represent the totality of my thinking on the matter. I'm on record on other platforms that I did think the chances of war were much greater than a year ago. But I certainly was not thinking this week! In any case, I hope these spontaneous remarks - as much as the written word can be spontaneous - will at least answer some of the inquiries.
In any case, the question is, why now? War is always a mess, and never goes according to plan. Tragically, people are killed, maimed, dislocated. It is always a miscalculation. But why now? And whose is the miscalculation?
Allow me to play devil's advocate for a moment. When the Soviet Union fell and the various former Soviet republics went their separate ways, an odd book appeared in the United States by a "think tanker" named Francis Fukuyama called The End of History. The book was odd because it basically argued that with the fall of Communism in the Soviet Union, the world was basically witnessing the triumph of Western secular progressivism and the global triumph of "American 'values'" and that all was going to be well, ignoring completely the basic fallen fact of human nature, which people like Fukuyama are wont to do. At the time, I thought the book was incredibly shallow, not the least because whenever Fukuyama could bring himself to discuss any theological basis for those "values", he made a terrible hash of it, mangling concepts beyond recognition of any theological scholar. Why do I belabor this point? Because it told me he had no idea what he was dealing with in Russia's case. It was that same easy going, nauseating secularism that so infects America that one cannot even study the Middle Ages in an American "academy" without running into its attempt to understand them with but minimal reference to Christianity. That same easy false optimism led to the whole post-9/11 enterprise of the "war on terror" and "nation building" which has ended in American "wokeism" and whole departments of the federal government here (and in Canada) branding large swaths of its own population "terrorists" when parents speak out against woke school boards. Fukuyama's book was essentially written by a secularist, for secularists, and written with that with that rosy and peculiarly American penchant for ignoring the basic human fact that lots of people like their traditional culture. But the great quasi-Masonic project of remaking the world was not to be sidelined nor delayed and so hence we've attempted to impose our "values" on everyone else, forgetting that some people like to be rough and unfitted stones, rather than mere blocks in a big edifice allowing no individual movement.
Lest we forget, The Ukraine was part of that project, and I suspect there are multiple levels to the answer to the question "why now"? Russia has been sounding the alarm bells for years, and no one was listening, in part because of the inbred hostility of the West to all things Russian, a phenomenon which is centuries old and really a manifestation of the inbred hostility of the West and its premier "cultural" institution, the Papacy, to all things Orthodox. It's that consistent Orthodox witness that had not, and Lord willing, will never bow the knee to an institution claiming that it is "altogether necessary to salvation for every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff" that is the thorn in the West's side, the fly in the West's first globalist project's ointment, the Papacy. It's that witness to a form of Catholic Christianity that is both ancient and non-Papal that's the rub, and Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union has been doing its best to re-embody that it is the premier Orthodox nation and power. I have some misgivings about that too, but that's the subject for another day.
At more modern and deeper levels, consider only the GMO (genetically modified organism) question: The Ukraine was targeted by western agribusiness long ago, and of course arms were twisted to turn Europe's breadbasket into a GMO producer; western argibusinesses (which we call "I.G. Farbensanto" on this website in the same spirit of mockery with which we call the injections "quackcines") were granted special port privileges on the Black Sea, and certain well-known grifting political families helped broker some of those deals, probably in between snorts of cocaine and energy deals. Meanwhile, Russia banned GMOs. There's also the allied issues not only of The Ukraine's rich agriculture, but its resources. The West wants them; Russia wants them.
Then there's the murky associations surrounding the West's sponsored coup government (remember Maidan?), associations conjuring the worst fascist memories from World War Two. Some years ago, a Russian official named Sergei Glazyev wrote an op-ed piece, in which he stated - in all seriousness - that Russia's problem was not the Nazis in Kiev, but the Nazis in Washington. At the time, disturbing images of Ukrainian military units emerged, displaying regalia oddly similar to Ukrainian insignia worn by Waffen SS units during World War Two. Before that, there was of course the brief "Hettmanate of the Ukraine" carved out by the Central Powers after the Soviet surrender at Brest-Litovsk in March of 1918, a clear indicator that the Ukraine sought independence, but at the price of becoming, in effect, a puppet state of Germany... sound familiar?
Then of course at yet another level, there was the butchery Ukrainians suffered under collectivization under Stalin, another grizzly tale in a very long history.
Why now? I suspect that insofar as the West is concerned, the miscalculation goes back to ignoring those repeated Russian messages not to expand NATO nor launch "regime change" operations closer and closer to Russia, which the West patently ignored. The West miscalculated by ignoring those warnings, and thinking Russia would sit by and do nothing. Did Putin miscalculate? Probably so, for sooner or later, ignored warnings have to be "backed up". Did Mr. Globaloney miscalculate? Probably so, because he needs a distraction for his failed financial and imperial policies, his failed planscamdemic, and his basic absence of any genuine (note the word) sympathy for the traditional culture, his general inhumanity and hatred of God all to bring about his Bauhaus vision of the future; think of the perpetually scowling, puckered lemonesque face of Klaus Schwab here.
Worst of all, governments lie, and now I suspect the lying will really begin. I freely admit, that part of my personal miscalculation was due to the manifest lies this government has perpetrated over the decades since JFK and the ludicrous Warren Report, lies which have reached a new plateau in the past few years, so much so that when it cried "wolf" this time, I wasn't very inclined to give it much credence.
And though I grossly miscalculated on this one, I will retain my cynical attitude. That means I will make many more mistakes folks.
See you on the flip side...

I came across this video on twitter (sorry but I can’t find another link for it) which may provide an answer to the “why now” question: because the war is interfering with the sowing of crops and other spring farming activities which will lead to poor production at harvest time. This video claims the tractors are being used to haul tanks and for other such war priorities, leaving the farming duties on hold.
Interesting point of view on the possible outcomes of the Russian intervention on the situation of the whole of continental Europe, by indian diplomat M. K. BHADRAKUMAR
Ukraine’s hybrid war is mutating
Posted on February 25, 2022
There were a lot of things pushing Putin to invade Ukraine, they would have inevitably come to a head at some point. It wasn’t a spontaneous act of emotion, it was necessary and more negatives acrueing over time than positives.
Also, make of this what you will:

I thought the information on the bioweapons labs was already largely known in the english speaking sphere. VT published it among others. But the narrative on the US “protecting” the lazy Europeans with its precious taxpayers money seems to still cloud some american minds.
Several years ago, a very detailed investigation by Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, followed by more research on arms deliveries to fuel war zones, spread all over the french alternative media :
The Pentagon Bio-Weapons

More recent documents to download on Dilyana’s twitter :
Barring anything going on behind the scenes, its because Putin knows that the West is relatively weak and it is therefore a relatively good time to implement another of Russia’s long-term objectives. A prolonged war will only result in even higher oil prices at a time when the West is suffering under its first real bout of inflation since the 1980s and the financial system is on the precipice of collapse. Biden’s handlers cannot come into the spotlight to negotiate and there is some suspicion as to whether Biden even has the “nuclear football”.
Just wait. Its heavy I know.
The old Soviet Union is looking rather tame compared
to the Klaus Schwab New World Order;
using covid, CO2, and any means necessary,
as means to an end of any human liberty,
and the beginnings of globalized Totalitarian Technocracies.
Dear Joseph,none of us would be following you were it not for the fact that you give 100% of yourself in all your human endeavours.Anyone expecting more is unreasonable and perhaps delusional.
Bon Courage !
Hi Dr. Farrell. Another video I watched on this subject claimed they had seen maps of bio-tech companies the US government funded throughout Ukraine as well as some of the locations that have been bombed since the war started. They claimed that some of the bombed locations matched the bio-tech locations. Maybe Putin doesn’t like our track record of making viruses more potent as we seemed to do in Wuhan? Does anyone else have information concerning this?
I didn’t read down far enough, looks like a few of your well educated and informed members already covered this, thanks for the information.
Anyways all we can do is wait Putin clear out those nazis. Nobody can do anything about it. Biden? No lol. NATO? no lol. Love you all. Heavy times but keep cool. We soon out of this shit.
Unfortunately, the Nazis are not just in western Ukraine. We have our own as well.
Remember, the central bankers always own both sides in a conflict. A leader that you cheer for because it appears they are advocating for your interests may not be.
Check out this article from Brandon Smith who breaks this down into Globalists and non.
True. But nazis die now. They die and their supporters. All of them. Russia kill em all. I mean all of them. Even John McStain’s friends, they all finished now. U.S. cant keep em safe.
Dr Farrell, I assume you know who Ignacy Paderewski and Wincenty Witos were? They both were explaining what was going on with whole “ukraine” thing and who was behind it.I try to look for their work which I don’t remember right now. Long story short, firstly whole “Ukraine” idea started in Austrian Empire (later Austro-Hungary) under Habsburgs military intelligence supervision,where in Lvov University they started to cook whole idea of that nation including language( which is in fact Ruthenian dialect of Russian language)and cultural customs(again Ruthenian).After 1866 defeat against Prussia, whole enterprise was taken over by Hohenzollern family and their military intelligence,which btw gave it much needed boost.From these two country’s agents were sent to Russia Empire were they started to work on whole thing.
First World War was needed to weaken Russia Empire enough so Bolshevik Revolution could succeeded ( which you may already know that it was again German intelligence doing) and after it did, what they created? Soviet republics, including Ukraine SSR…which in return gave whole thing much needed legitimacy.So,creation of “Ukraine” myth was done explicitly to weaken Russia, nothing else.
Let the Ukrainians not Putin decide what they want to do with the “myth”
The problem is Ukrainians don’t decide anything by themselves. U.S. decides everything. That’s why Putin is in there. He said the border is not Ukraine/russia, it’s Russia/USA.
Tell it to G. Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other revolutionary period inhabitants of todays’ USA, that they don’t decide anything for themselves, but UK has to decide for them.
And if west don’t understand it now, Russia or Putin doesn’t care any sanctions, then… they go all the way. There is no saction or threat you can do. That time is past. I know something about Russia as I lived there 4 years myself. I repeat. There is nothing what will scare his government or the people of Russia, what west can do. They pee on west’s sactions. Absolutely nothing. They are tough cookies and now you will see it. Nothing. There’s nothing you can threat them. They don’t scare anybody. You played it in Ukraine, lost the game and now it’s time to pay the price. I don’t like it, but it is what it is. Just keep the cool head.
Do you seriously expect current regime in Kiev , which was installed forcefully by Western intelligence’s that they in fact are illegal and illegitimate?
Well.. It’s a Russian land, people belong to the Russian world. They speak Russian, Ukrainian language is almost like Russian, culture is Russian, people behaviour is like Russian. It’s a Russian land. I lived in SPb and our relatives from my wife’s side lived in Ukraine. We got honey from Crimea when relatives visited to us… Anything the western media tells you about it is not true. It’s just not. My wife’s Russian uncle lives in Ukraine. It’s totally normal. I hate how the west tries to twist evrything in here. Russians and Ukrainians are truly bound by the blood. Western backed Nazis in Kiev are not.
I’ve seen this on my own eyes. They are like brotherly nations. Some think of that I spread Russian propaganda=I don’t care. And apparently either Russia or Putin. It is what it is. West must understand it, or we all doomed. Can we dig up JFK? I mean we surely would need some smart diplomats.
Nazis will die now. That’s the Putin’s message. There’s no safe haeven for them anymore. And all who helped them. That’s why he went to Odessa. He want those nazis who burned russians 2014-2015. That’s why he is in Odessa. He hunt nazis now. Azov battallion.. he will kill them all. Just see.
If we are trying to talk about an epigenesis of the names of various tribes and states of Eastern Slav lets start with a medieval times. There was not Russia on the map at that time but Kievan Rus, Lithuanian Grand Duchy, Muscovy Grand Duchy, then Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, that gave the popular name to their most Eastern outpost Ukraina( which translates lands on the border). As far as Austrian Hapsburg Empire, yes they often pinned Polish and Ukrainian against each other, like many empires do to populace that wants to subjugate to their power.
OK, good thinking, but go back further in Time to Russia’s ‘Catherine the Great’, the 1st and only empress of Russia. She brokered a deal to BUY a huge swath of territory in the 1700’s. It incuded Crimea and virtually ALL of Eastern Europe. Research that, and then go back in TIME to really start THINKING!
I know ‘part’ of the answer, so do not neglect to consider the Doctine of Double Procession, and see what you can find.
The fog of war. Finland’s national public broadcasting company YLE, put out news today in Russian language, that Finland is joining NATO. It’s a fake news. Russia of course reacted such news immediately. I don’t know what force/power could put that news out, as YLE is a government’s broadcasting company, but it’s a fake news. Now it’s important to keep a cool head. Calm down! This operation in Ukraine is over very soon. Very soon. Don’t believe anything what MSM says.
The Baltic sea area is more quiet than usually. There’s no immediate threat. You might want to ask why west kept the Minsk agreement dead for 8 years. That’s the reason why Russia is doing this. They ran out of options. It was 8 years and the legacy of Nuland and John McStain. That’s why we are here.
I live about 12 miles from the Russian border, so there’s no need to panick. Cool headed people will survive this 🙂
There is a real reporter in the Ukraine names George Eliason pretty much sayings what you are, seems to be the correct way to look at this
I tried to post his video on here but it won’t let me , interesting
I so much want to relocate to Russia from Northern California. I’ve been longing to live my life out in Russia after reading the Anastasia Ringing Cedars series in 2006. It may be far out, but I think Putin connects with her when he vacations in Siberia. I have studied Putin and have absolute respect for him as one of the greatest Statesmen of our time. Any way I could visit with you once the special military op is concluded? It might help me figure out if it’s even feasible for a pro-Putin American to emigrate to Russia under the 2.5 hectare program. Any advice or encouragement you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I no longer wish to be a part of this country. We have disgraced ourselves beyond recovery, in my opinion. Go Putin #GoBears Jen Miles
Could I correspond with you about visiting Russia once this special military op is concluded ? I’ve been wanting to emigrate since reading Anastasia Ringing Cedars series in 2006. My email is [email protected]. I like your comments. Jen Miles
Gregory Mannarino (investor vlogger) has an interesting perspective. He says Putin just bailed out the Central Bankers.
AS much as the Western believe in Fukuyama “vision” of the end of the history was a naivete belief, so is an equating Russia with an Orthodoxy.
If you really look carefully at the 1000 years of Christian Kiev Rus/Ukraine, there has been always their strive for independence. And yes they have allied themselves many times with states and empires( British Crown, Ottoman, Amsterdam Bankers to mention a few) who ultimately brought them more sorrow than freedom, hey! that’s what it takes sometimes to survive and build a nation especially in geopolitical location, that Ukraine lies, on the cross roads of Orient and Europe.
In a comment under the blog tilted ” Ukrainian President Zelenski calls…” DATA50 wrote..
“Just as Sigmund Freud’s “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”, so too sometimes a struggle for independence (for Ukraine) is just a struggle for independence.”
Lets not remove from our sight, that this is the main objective of Ukrainian people INDEPENDENCE and SOVEREIGNTY, despite all other things that are going on in their territory like GMO, biological labs, leasing to foreign powers their Black Sea ports etc.
Big winner of the Russian invasion may be the Israelis and their Eastmed gas pipeline which will feed mid-east gas to Europe, if allowed. Biden withdrew his support a month ago for environmental reasons. My guess is this position will change now that Russian gas is being heavily sanctioned. The neo-con fifth column certainly gets things done.
Thanks JF! Not that I have any background for discerning these kinds of situations, but it appeared to me that Putin would invade when he recognized the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics and video footage of war there was published at the same time. This gave Putin a humanitarian purpose that was legal and that he could defend while meeting his own needs. What happens next appears to be more posturing by the West, but will there be more escalation? I say eventually because when the West needs a war it gets a war.
We don’t get very much information for a society awash with communications. So, we do our best with what we have and can infer. Being led by a feckless administration with much to hide and a population who doesn’t give a feck about it, not having elected it, there is little hope that it will get its fecking act together in order to move events in an intentional direction. It can only react and it really cannot do so with any authority.
If war is diplomacy by other means, then feinting from a position of weakness is fainting by other spellings. One supposes that Putin will demonstrate what I imagine is a limited appetite for killing and destruction of the territory of Ukraine, and establish a puppet government there once again. I do expect China is taking notes, but is already the class star in the simple curriculum that is Biden&co.
Well worth reading this BBC News investigation about neo-Nazism in Ukraine.
And they sum up as follows:
“There are significant risks to this silence. Experts say the Azov Battalion, which has been widely reported on in the West, has damaged Ukraine’s image and bolsters Russia’s information campaign.
And although Ukraine is emphatically not run by fascists, far-right extremists seem to be making inroads by other means, as in the country’s police department.
Ukraine’s public is grossly under-informed about this. The question is, why doesn’t anyone want to tell them?”
More about the Ukranian Azov Battalion unit of neo-Nazi soldiers. Interesting FB double standards – just like the BBC News report last week.
Posted this below, but as I’ve been resesearching the Azov Battalion since 2015, or thereabouts folks might want a more detailed, long version video and sub-titled in English, of the Azov Battalion. Be sure to watch to the end. Thanks!!!

Are US-run biological labs in Ukraine one of the reasons behind Russia invasion? Read how Russian govt had raised ‘bioweapons’ alarm
You don’t start invasion of your neighboring country full force to get a hold of biological lab. KGB and GRU are more than apt to to do it quietly.
I got a hunch Putin invaded because of an imminent false flag threat involving bioweapons, Chernobyl, or something of catastrophic proportions.
I think two factors are being overlooked in the Russian liberation of Ukraine : 1) 11 to 14 DOD-funded bioweapons laboratories located in Ukraine where the DOD private contractors literally experimented with different pathogens and their release on unsuspecting Ukranian citizens; Russian missile attacks directly overlay the locations of these laboratories yesterday, and Putin intends to find out who is involved with WHAT at these facilities and start formal investigations and trials there on. 2) Numerous incidents of atrocities committed by the Ukranian junta against citizens in the independent states (raping women & children to death then selling their organs) and the burning alive of at least 50 people in Odessa, where Putin says they have names and will track down and bring to trial the perpetrators. Other repressive and diabolical practices have also been occurring since the 2014 coup on those Russian-Ukranians who have not towed the party line. I might also suggest 3) the ongoing and outright thievery of Ukraine’s manufacturing and energy infrastructure by ensconced oligarchs, for tremendous profit, backed by U.S. state department, NGOs and alphabet agency ‘advisors’ since 2014. An estimated 10 to 15% of these ill-gotten gains made their way back to unnamed individuals in the USA. Word is, Putin will hold tribunals at an international court of justice (?) and, again, will bring transparency to Mr. Globaloney’s incredibly dirty dealings. Why Now? might best be answered by why did Putin wait so long, as he himself commented. We may be witnessing an irrecoverable end to American hegemony, and wouldn’t that be something wonderful — finally!
I’d like to sum up in observing that Putin is truly ‘holding the line’ against the slime of the deep state players, and the only real arrests and tribunal prosecution we will soon see will come from him — not Trump, nor Q, nor the ephemeral ‘white hats’ of our military, nor the ET alliance, etc. We’ve been played by another great psyop, and now Putin is going to do it for real. I’m almost in tears.
Read my answer to a post above. Yes I am in tears also for all the Ukrainian civilians and Russian soldiers who will fall and already are falling in this senseless war.
Joseph. Re: The SS and Nazis in Ukraine, last week the BBC repeatedly broadcast an entire news item, featuring a group of Ukranian neo-Nazis, actually wearing SS insignia on their clothes – and made no comment whatsoever about it!
See this report in the Mail on Sunday with still pictures of the soldiers.
I’ve been resesearching the Azov Battalion since 2015, or thereabouts. Here is a more detailed, long version video and sub-titled in English, of the Azov Battalion. Be sure to watch to the end.

As the Doctor claimed several times, he has the right to be wrong, so that’s it. Now regarding the Russian attack. I can not deny, that they did an excellent job at gas lighting everyone,in spite of the fact, that they announced exactly what they are doing right now publicly and in written form two months ago.

Russia says the final straw was President Zelensky’s declaration of intent to restore Ukraine as a nuclear power. This, they say, sealed the invasion
Putin invaded to stop The Ukraine from getting weapons of mass destruction. No different than W Bush and Iraq.
May I recommend looking into the Crusades for parallels and episode on the YouTube channel The Real Crusader History on Charlemagne. In less than an hour the host of that channel explains Charlemagne crowning at Rome by the Pope as first emperor of the Holy Rome Empire I have read three books on Charlemagne and have a fourth to read. We can lay at the feet of this man the mess of Europe by granting and creating the Papal State he helped dismember Italy for a thousand years and help fuel the fantasies of the Papacy as king makers in Europe. He also scorned a proposal of marriage between one of his daughters and the Eastern Roman emperor which might have legitimise the HRE in the eyes of the ERE.
THe West, and most histories of Charlemagne and his coronation, get it GROSSLY wrong, and I’m willing to wager it did there as well… I cover it at great length in my tome…
You got it right. Just wait.
Well said Marcos, the real name of Charlemagne’s creation is “Heilige Römische Reich deutscher Nation” – “Holy Roman Empire of the GERMAN NATION”.
