Disquiet at Davos and the Unsaid Fear of Failure – The First Shoots of a U.S. Ukraine Shift

Monday, 30 May 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Alastair Crooke

The unspoken fear disquieting Davos attendees is the fear of another débacle, following that of Afghanistan.

Klaus Schwab, passionate for Ukraine, essentially configured the World Economic Forum (WEF) to showcase Zelensky and to leverage the argument that Russia should be kicked out of the civilised world. Schwab’s target was the assembled crème de la crème of the world’s business leaders assembled there.

Sanctions must be all encompassing; values must matter.

Data shenanigans as Sweden misleads its public over vaccination-related mortality data

Sunday, 29 May 2022 — HART

Which other countries are playing the same game?

Covid-19 : the Evidence Now

Sunday, 29 May 2022 — HART

What have we learned?

It is over two years since the first lockdown and now more than a year since HART published its paper COVID-19: an overview of the evidence. We asked all the original authors to go back and review their article and update with relevant publications, revising their conclusions as appropriate. These chapters spelled out either evidence of harms from the pandemic policies or theoretical concerns.

A year later the evidence is coming in and it is damning.  This ‘updates’ series will hopefully form part of HART’s evidence to the Independent Review.

Gruesome Goings-On

Monday, 30 May 2022 — The Van Says…
