Briefly about Ukraine. 05/25/2022
Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.

Commentary by Russian military journalist Boris Rozhin

[ColonelCassad] Briefly about Ukraine. 05/25/2022

1. Svetlodarsk.
Officially liberated Luhansk. There are fights for Novoluganskoe. The enemy is gradually drawn back to Artemovsk (Bakhmut). The surrender of the Svetlodar Bulge is justified by a "tactical maneuver".

2. Avdievka.
Fighting in the area of ​​Novoselki-2, New York and Krasnogorovka. There is no significant progress today. The enemy puts up stubborn resistance.

3. Artemovsk (Bakhmut).
Battles at Pilipchatino. There is an increasing processing of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Artemovsk. The enemy is concentrating equipment to the west of Artemovsk. An attempt to counterattack to unblock the Artemovsk-Lysichansk route is not ruled out.

4. Soledar.
There is no assault on the city yet. To the north of Soledar, the troops reached the Artemovsk-Lysichansk highway in the area of ​​Belogorovka and Nagorny. The key communications of the Severodonetsk grouping have been cut. There was a supply line through Seversk.

5. Zolotoye.
Fighting on the southern outskirts of the village continued, as well as in Kamyshevakh. Vrubovka is still under the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Fighting continues in the Toshkovka area. The grouping in Gorskoye and Zolotoye is in a difficult situation. It will be difficult for her to leave.

6. Severodonetsk.
Fighting continued on the outskirts of Severodonetsk. It is also stated that the troops approached Lisichansk.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will have to make a difficult decision - either play out the Mariupol scenario, with the encirclement and subsequent complete destruction of the entire Severodonetsk group, or retreat with losses in the direction of Slavyansk and Artemovsk. If the resolution of the issue is delayed, already in the next week the problem of supply will confront the Severodonetsk grouping to its full height, not to mention the fact that the issue of withdrawing troops from the encirclement may disappear by itself.

7. Krasniy Limon.
Most of the city has already been liberated by the RF Armed Forces and the National Guard. The enemy is resisting in the southeastern part of the city. There are reports of the withdrawal of part of the forces to the Seversky Donets (River). Information about a large number of prisoners has been confirmed.

8. Izyum.
Positional battles in the area of ​​Kamyshevakhi and Dolgenko. The enemy expects the activation of the Izyum grouping of the RF Armed Forces after the completion of the encirclement of the Severodonetsk grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

9. Kharkov.
The enemy continued to try to recapture the lost positions in the area of ​​Ternovoye and Rubezhnoye. Didn't have any major success. At the same time, there is a strengthening of the grouping of the RF Armed Forces in the Kharkiv direction, and there is also talk of strengthening the grouping of the RF Armed Forces on the border of the Sumy and Chernihiv regions.

10. Nikolaev, Odessa, Zaporizhia, Marinka, Ugledar - no changes.

From Russian military blogger Andrey Chervonets:
About the situation in the area of ​​Severodonetsk

Regarding the earlier information about the withdrawal of heavy Ukrainian artillery from the borders of Severodonetsk, an interesting quote from the chat of the TG channel "Lysichansk. Severodonetsk. Rubizhne."

1. No such command was received by radio intercepts.

2. At the moment, especially after tonight, they have practically nothing to take away.

3. The Ukrainian troops left in the triangle, especially in Severodonetsk, are useless meat, Kyiv may not withdraw them, since a riot in the rear of previously abandoned warriors, with their successful evacuation, is not needed by their commanders. Therefore, they are likely to deliberately try to leave to die.
Ukrainians have done this before -- in Debalstevo in 2015
4. After breaking through the defenses in Liman and Svetlodarsk, the next settlement is Artemovsk, in which they can no longer build an echeloned defense. They may try, urgently, to equip positions between Dnepropetrovsk and the Kramatorsk-Slavyansk direction, but this will take at least three weeks.

Therefore, the troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Triangle are walking corpses, they are still breathing, talking, but in fact they are already dead, no one will take them in an organized manner, only if they run away on their own, in small groups, or surrender,

Additionally from the Lisichansk chat.
In forest plantations near the old cemetery of Novodruzhesk, the Ukrainians, who moved away from Privolye and left Severodonetsk, have been building fortifications for the last couple of days, but after a powerful arrival at night, the Ukrainians are very sad, it seems that no one left.

A lot of equipment, all the built objects are "tired". In many places, piles of broken equipment cannot be bypassed, they are still burning, peaceful quarters were not damaged, there were no arrivals to the residential area. In the PDR area, simply unmeasuredly beaten equipment. They were beaten with something high-precision.

Meanwhile, Russian forces broke into the defenses on the Bakhmut-Lysichansk highway and took Belogorovka, Nagornoye and Vasilyevka. Units of the Ukrainian 14th Independent Rifle Brigade suffered heavy losses and retreated.

Thus, the main supply route for the Severodonetsk grouping has been physically cut off. The road through Seversk remained at the disposal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. When moving towards Seversk from Yampol or when moving from Belogorovka to the Artemovsk-Seversk highway, the boiler from the operational will become full and about 4,000 VSUshnikov (Ukrainians) will be surrounded.
Roughly the same number of the units captured during Debaltseveo.

The Bond Market and Inflation-Peter Zeihan
[YouTube] The U.S. Federal Reserve is in the midst of raising interest rates. By raising the cost of borrowing and making debt (money) more expensive, you control spending thereby controlling inflation.

The United States is currently experiencing the worst inflation crisis in some 40 years. The Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes are the traditional tool in combatting such a problem.

The challenge of inflation is not America's alone. Across Europe and Asia, global currencies are seeing inflation drive up the cost of food, fuel, consumer goods, and housing. Unlike the United States, however, most countries' central banks do not have as direct a course to combat inflation as the Federal Reserve.

A combination of demographic and Russian sanction-related inflationary pressures limit most European nations' abilities to aggressively raise rates. A population as old and quickly aging as Germany or Italy's is unlikely to see a bounce back in consumer spending once rates return to zero--where they have been for over a decade. This is a move the Europeans copied out of Japan's playbook, whose nearly 20 years of near-or-at-zero interest rates are likely to be their foreseeable future.

So what does this mean for bond markets? The U.S. has the demographic strength and economic resilience to keep raising its interest rates, while the rest of the world will be forced to continue issuing bonds at or near zero. Which means their bonds, and ability to borrow, will soon become strongly uncompetitive vis-a-vis the United States.

#4  1. Quit giving the banker basically zero interest loans from the Fed.
2. Tell the bankers go to the people and invite them to put money in saving paying more than 0.02% interest. If anyone is old enough to remember before the Treasury was issuing money at zero rate to 'prime' lenders, rates that make a reasonable return on investment.
3. Tell the home buyers to have 10% down on what they want to buy which means they're not going to have all those HGTV bells and whistles.

#6  The Fed has a balance sheet of $9 trillion. Which means that over the last 10 or so years it has just dumped $9 trillion into the economy without producing anything at all. This is the classic recipe for inflation--"too much money chasing too few goods" They say they are going to begin unwinding the balance sheet to the tune of around $80 billion/month. Which will be a good start. We'll see how long they can stay the course before political panic overcomes any semblance of a sound monetary policy.

#7  The "goods" are suckier all the time. Debased dollars chasing them seems right somehow.

#8  Here's a game to play. Go here and enter your best recall on commodities when you used to pay with silver coins. Like I used to pay 35cents a gallon of gas or McD's were 45cents for a hamburger, fries, and a drink (all small). The point appears that commodities generally stay relative to each other over the years less any major technological or resource discoveries. It's the fictitious 'value' of command currency that balloons. Governments run by men can't help themselves but to inflate/debase the coin.

#9  A "commodity" is something you have to dig out of the ground, drill for, or grow. All cost money to liberate, refine, produce. Inflation makes them more costly to instantiate and more costly to buy.

#10  ^ Before someone screeches, yes breeding, raising, feeding and slaughtering cattle is a commodity operation too.
Posted by: M. Murcek || 05/26/2022 15:36 Comments || Top||

#11  But this inflation is arguably a demand (or shortage) inflation.

The Fed's balance sheet has been rising for years and years, and we hardly had inflation.

Inflation will get moving once the velocity of money (M2) increases, and that's actually been decreasing over the years.

‘Right to repair' equipment removed from NC Senate farm bill. Why it matters.
[News & Observer] In the face of stiff opposition from farm equipment companies and dealers, North Carolina state senators on Tuesday walked back a provision that would have widened access to the repair of farming equipment.

Home Front: Politix
Gov. Greg Abbott Should Be Thanking Beto O'Rourke for His Uvalde Stunt
[RedState] The Micksican exposed - shameless c&^t
Robert Francis O’Rourke, the Irish Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate who pretends to be Hispanic, just did Gov. Greg Abbott a huge favor. In the wake of the tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, O’Rourke made himself look utterly foolish by grandstanding at a somber press conference in which the governor was giving the public the facts of the incident.

As the Lone Star State is dealing with the shock, grief, and outrage of the murder of elementary school children, "Beto" decided it was a good time to try to get attention. In the middle of the conference, as Abbott was handing the microphone to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, O’Rourke made his move. He stood up and shouted at the officials, trying to castigate them for not doing enough about guns. "You are doing nothing. You are all doing nothing... this is totally predictable," he bloviated.

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin ripped Beto a new one. "Sir, you are out of line. Sir, you are out of line. Sir, you are out of line, please leave this auditorium. I can’t believe you’re a sick son of a bitch who would come to a deal like this to make a political issue," he seethed.

And that’s all she wrote for Beto O’Rourke, who is about as Hispanic as I am Chinese. The Irishman did not have much of a chance of defeating Abbott in the first place; this little stunt just sealed his fate. It would be one thing if he held his own press conference or shot a video in which he criticized Abbott and other Republican officials for not doing enough to stop these types of atrocities. Whether one agreed with his arguments is irrelevant — it’s how these types of issues should be handled.

But it’s quite another to disrupt a press conference in which Abbott is explaining to the public how the incident went down as the state is in mourning. The murdered children and two teachers are not even in the ground yet and O’Rourke is using their deaths to score cheap political points. Sure, this stuff plays well for fellow leftists who have no problem exploiting deaths to push for gun control, but for the average Texan, this ain’t it.

Davos Switzerland, Where Our 'Betters' Are Deciding Our Future
[Red State] Davos Switzerland is hosting over 2,000 experts and they are planning the New World Order. Elitists who are planning to control you and everything about you are working on those plans now. One of the architects of the World Economic Forum is Klaus Schwab. Schwab was born in Nazi Germany and projects the appearance of Dr. Evil but in a better suit. He tells the forum that "The future is built by us." Ok, Klaus.

We covered his creepy opening statements two days ago. Schwab and 2,000 other people who are better than you, flew into Davos on private jets and then hopped into helicopters for their final destination. They are making plans to control everything that touches money and that translates into everything you do. Unless you are living in a tree house, off the grid, and paying cash, their plan is to know everything about you. What you do, what "carbon footprint" you leave, and where you go and what you buy. I reported months ago how our "betters" plan to monitor you "social credit score" and how mega-companies plan to monitor your compliance — track you. They want to know everything about you.

The president of Alibaba, J Michael Evans, said that they are planning to allow consumers to measure their own carbon footprint. What does that mean? They would know where you travel, what you are eating, what you consuming, so they can create an individual "carbon footprint tracker."

"Stay tuned," Evans says. "We don’t have it operational yet, but its something we are working on."

Signal boost: rebuttal to CNN report on death of Al-Jazeera reporter
[SpinStrangenessCharm] Contemptible News Network, a.k.a. Complete Narrative Network, lives up to its name with a new "report" trying to blame/frame Israel for the killing of al-Jazeera’s Shirin Abu Akleh.

Read this rebuttal by NY Sun news hound Dovid Efune in a Tw*tter thread, which I’m echoing here in its entirety.


A new @CNN
...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for...
report is now claiming "evidence" that Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed in a "assassination" by Israeli forces.

It’s a wildly irresponsible report, reminiscent of the al-Durrah libel of 2000 that fueled the deadly 2nd Intifada.

CNN’s claims defy logic and some are overtly false. The report also makes ample use of multiple discredited sources and uses word tricks to misdirect the reader.

Below is a partial breakdown of the deceitful account and the unanswered questions it leaves.

CNN essentially offers 4 arguments to make its case. Each of them is problematic. Credit for some of the below goes to a handful of intrepid internet sleuths, including blogger @elderofziyon.

First, a bit of logic:

1. Per CNN’s own map, the Israeli forces were positioned in between Abu Akleh and the bully boys. If they were shooting at each other (green arrow for IDF, red arrow for button men), then the Paleostinians were the only ones shooting in Abu Akleh’s direction.

2. CNN confirms that both the Israelis and the Death Eaters were using M16 and M4 rifles.

It then cites an "expert" who claims that the Paleostinians, about 300 meters away from Abu Akleh, were out of range.

The M4’s range is 500+ meters. The M16’s range is 800+ meters.

3. The report relies heavily on "eyewitnesses."

Citing witness testimony from within what @NatanSharansky would call a "fear society" is inherently problematic.

The sources are highly motivated to toe the line and would place themselves at great personal risk if they didn’t.

4. CNN then cites "explosive weapons expert" Chris Cobb-Smith, who is no objective observer.

Cobb-Smith has a history (over a decade) of directing his "expertise" towards incriminating Israel. He’s also tied to some reliably anti-Israel groups, including Forensic Architecture.

Cobb-Smith claims that the grouping of bullet holes at the scene could not have come from random (militant) fire.

But CNN ignores the likelihood that the button men were firing — and specifically aiming — in the direction of the IDF, whom Abu Akleh was standing behind.

Also, the spacing of the bullet holes shown by CNN, with one higher up and two lower down, seem unlikely to have come from a sniper, as CNN asserts.

I know of no military that would retain a sniper who was that bad a shot, no less the IDF.

5. CNN’s final piece of "evidence" comes from forensic audio analyst Robert Maher who matches the distance (200m) from which the deadly bullet was fired to the IDF.

Maher seems straight enough, but here’s the catch. Per CNN, there were 2 volleys fired in Abu Akleh’s direction...

Maher only analyses the second volley because, CNN says, "eyewitnesses" say Abu Akleh was hit in the second barrage. But what if the eyewitnesses were wrong, per the above, and she was killed in the first?

Why does CNN not give us the same data from the first volley?

If, as seems a more likely scenario, the Death Eaters (from 300m) came up behind the Israelis and fired in their (and Abu Akleh’s) direction, then the Israelis would have returned fire (from 200m) towards them.

Maher may be right on distance, but the IDF was shooting the other way.

In sum, CNN’s report appears carefully constructed to fit a pre-determined conclusion: Israel is guilty.

It will no doubt be used to recruit for terror groups who prey on innocent civilians in Israel and in worldwide Jewish communities.

Their blood will be on @CNN’s hands.

All I can say is: if the "Paleostinians" were sure their hands were clean in this matter, they would not behave in the manner they are.
