    Mikhail Gorbachev dies at 91
    He will be remembered as the father of ‘perestroika’ but also for presiding over the fall of the Soviet Union

    https://www.rt.com/russia/558272-gor...soviet-leader/

    Mikhail Gorbachev, the first and only president of the Soviet Union, has died at the age of 91, in Moscow.



    His death was reported on Tuesday night by the Central Clinical Hospital, which said in a statement that “Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev died this evening after a serious and prolonged illness.”

    According to the news agency TASS, Gorbachev was hospitalized at the very beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, at the request of his doctors, and had been under medical supervision ever since.

    A divisive figure, supporters credit him with having played a key part in bringing about an end to the Cold War, while opponents accuse him of aiding in the fall of the Soviet Union and a major loss to Moscow’s prestige and global influence.
    Perestroika, glasnost, private business and the presidency



    Born in 1931 into a peasant family in southern Russia, in his teens Gorbachev operated combine harvesters on collective farms. His party career started early in his student years, when he studied law at Lomonosov Moscow State University. His ascent through the ranks was relatively rapid, and in 1985 he became the general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, making him the highest ranking official in the USSR.

    During his time in office, Gorbachev aimed to re-energize the stalled Soviet economy, which was riddled with inefficiency, overblown defense spending and creeping corruption. He called for urgent reorganization and modernization, but soon expanded his reform to the political and social structure of the whole nation.

    The policy of ‘perestroika’ was announced in 1986 as an attempt to reorganize the economy. More of a political movement, the “restructuring” aimed to give more independence to ministries and large state-owned enterprises. It also introduced some free market-style reforms. In 1988, Gorbachev permitted establishing private enterprises in the country for the first time since Vladimir Lenin’s “New Economic Policy” of the 1920s.



    Another policy proclaimed was ‘glasnost'. Gorbachev aimed to bring transparency into society, ease the Communist Party’s control over the media and release political prisoners. This was a radical change, since control over public speech had previously been an essential part of the Soviet regime.

    Gorbachev also proposed a constitutional change to move to a presidential system and created a new political body called the Congress of People’s Deputies. The 2,250 members were elected in the Soviet Union’s first semi-competitive parliamentary election. On March 15, 1990, following a vote in the Congress of People’s Deputies, Mikhail Gorbachev became president of the USSR.

    Soviet pullout from Afghanistan, end of Cold War

    Gorbachev’s foreign policy, also known as the “new thinking,” marked a period of significant improvement of relations between the Soviet Union and Western countries, replacing the era of Cold War hostilities.

    In 1986, he announced plans to withdraw Soviet troops from Afghanistan, but it took three more years to complete the pullout.

    The Soviet-Afghan war was a major point of criticism for the West. It also cost the Soviet Union at least 15,000 casualties, put additional strains on an already creaking bureaucratic planned economy and filled the country with veterans suffering from combat stress disorders.

    The reengagement with the West paved the way for several key disarmament treaties to be signed. Moscow and Washington agreed to dismantle their intermediate-range conventional and nuclear missiles – the very precise weapons that could tempt the military into using nuclear weapons on a limited scale, but still trigger global mutual annihilation. Under Gorbachev, Moscow unilaterally stopped all nuclear tests.

    Moscow’s relations with the Eastern Bloc countries also underwent a radical change. Earlier, Soviet troops always served as the final argument, should one of the countries of the Cold War-era Warsaw Pact try to shift its allegiance. But Gorbachev’s liberalization included the right of self-determination for those nations. This was jokingly called the “Sinatra doctrine” after the singer Frank Sinatra, alluding to his song, 'My Way', as countries were allowed to determine their own internal policies. A string of revolutions in 1989 ousted European Communist regimes, and in 1990 West and East Germany reunified as one country.
    For his efforts in easing international tensions, Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990.

    In a statement accompanying the award, the Nobel Committee said that the president of the Soviet Union had played a “leading role” in the international peace process.

    Fall of the Berlin Wall

    Gorbachev is also well-known for having played a key role in the fall of the Berlin Wall, the symbol of a split Europe and divided world in the times of the Cold War.



    After the fall of the Nazi regime as a result of World War II, Germany had become two separate countries by 1949. The Federal Republic of Germany (or West Germany) was run by the Western Allies, while the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) was controlled by the Soviet Union. Berlin was located inside East Germany, but it was shared by both West and East Germany, with the Berlin Wall dividing the territories of the two states.

    Built in 1961, the wall separated families and loved ones for 28 years. It was eventually toppled on the night of November 9, 1989. During a visit to West Germany earlier in 1989, the Soviet leader declared that every nation can “freely choose its own political and social system” and that Moscow would “respect for the right of all peoples to self-determination.”

    The fall of the Berlin Wall marked the dawn of a new age – the end of the Cold War and the bipolar world – and it paved the way for Germany’s reunification in 1990.
    Collapse of the Soviet Union

    The partial democratization of Soviet society under Gorbachev led to a surge in nationalist and anti-Russian sentiment in most of the 15 Soviet republics. But this drive for independence was not always peaceful. On several occasions, Moscow ordered the use of force against violent riots, as the nationalist course in certain regions was seen as capable of spawning much greater violence in the future if the government failed to act. However, the use of force only caused bigger protests.

    The frozen conflicts in ethnic enclaves around the country, such as Nagorno-Karabakh and Trans-Dniester, as well as the 2008 war in South Ossetia, are the legacies of those events.

    Amid growing tensions within the USSR, Gorbachev attempted to draft a new union treaty. However, a group of hardline Soviet top officials, who called themselves the State Committee on the State of Emergency, attempted to stage a coup and to remove Gorbachev from power to prevent the signing of the new union treaty.

    The coup failed, but it prompted Gorbachev to dissolve the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and to resign as the party’s General Secretary, as well as to dissolve all party departments within the governmental structures, thus effectively ending Communist rule in the USSR and eliminating its primary unifying political force.

    The Soviet Union collapsed with dramatic speed during the latter part of 1991, as one Soviet republic after another declared independence. In December 1991, the presidents of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus met near the Belorussian town of Brest and signed the Belavezha Accords, which formally declared the Soviet Union effectively dissolved and established the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in its place.



    Gorbachev initially denounced the move as illegal, but later in the same month acknowledged it and announced his resignation as president.

    Controversy, post-Soviet contributions

    Gorbachev’s policies made him popular in the West, but in his own country he remains a controversial figure to this day. He is praised by many for his disarmament initiatives, the unification of Germany, instigating the fall of the Iron Curtain and ending the Cold War, as well as for granting Eastern European countries the right to self-determination.

    However, the former Soviet leader also faced significant criticism, mostly at home, from those who believe that his policies weakened the Soviet Union and its successor, Russia, and were the major cause of the collapse of the USSR.

    Some critics particularly say that, by moving forward with his disarmament initiatives, including the unilateral ones, he undermined the military and industrial might of the Soviet Union, while others accuse him of failing to prevent NATO from expanding further eastwards and eventually reaching Russia’s borders.

    After his resignation, Gorbachev created the International Non-Governmental Foundation for Socio-Economic and Political Studies (The Gorbachev Foundation), which is both a research center and discussion platform, as well as an NGO overseeing humanitarian charity projects.

    In 1993, at the initiative of the representatives of 108 countries, Gorbachev established Green Cross International, a non-governmental environmental organization, which now has offices in 23 countries around the world.

    In 1999, he also became one of the initiators of the Nobel Peace Laureates Summit, which meets every year to discuss global threats, such as violence and wars, poverty, crisis situations in the world’s economy, and the environment, according to the Gorbachev Foundation website.

    Between 2001 and 2009, Gorbachev also co-chaired the St. Petersburg Dialogue, an annual Russian-German forum held alternately in both countries and attended by politicians, entrepreneurs, and young people.

    The former Soviet leader had also visited around 50 countries since 1992 and been given more than 300 awards, diplomas, certificates of honor, and honorable distinctions, according to the Gorbachev Foundation.

    Gorbachev also wrote dozens of books, which have been published in 10 languages.

    “I was doing my best in bringing together morality and responsibility to people. It’s a matter of principle for me. It was high time to put an end to the rulers’ wild cravings and to their highhandedness. There were a few things I have not succeeded in, but I don’t think I was wrong in my approach,” he wrote in his political article of faith, published by the Gorbachev Foundation.



    Gorbachev will be buried in Moscow’s Novodevichy Cemetery next to his wife, Raisa, who died in 1999, Tass revealed, citing a source familiar with the family’s wishes.

    DIANA – Ritual Sacrifice - August 30th 1997 [ 25 years ago ]



    https://rumble.com/v1i0yi9-diana-rit...rld-order.html


    TRANSCRIPT - by Alexandra Bruce

    Twenty-five years ago, Princess Diana’s car crashed inside the the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris, France.

    Her lover, Dodi Fayed died upon impact, along with the driver.

    And even though Diana survived, it took about 40 minutes to get her from the car to the ambulance.

    The official story is that they were trying to free her from the car but several witnesses say that Diana was conscious and unobstructed.

    Photographs show that the backseat of the car was undamaged and witnesses were pleading with the police to open the door and help her.

    Once in the ambulance, it took about 40 minutes for them to choose a hospital and when they finally set off, the ambulance drove at a snail’s pace and made several stops, taking about 40 minutes to drive less than 4 miles.

    Doctors were turned away. Witnesses were strip-searched. Cameras were confiscated. No evidence was gathered. No blood samples were taken.

    And by 3AM, the entire scene would be sprayed down with high-pressure water hoses.

    Mercedes wanted to study the wreckage to see why it failed so badly but they were denied.

    Diana’s body was taken by the Royal Family, who had her reproductive organs removed [under the watchful eye of Michael Burgess, the Deputy Coroner of the Queen’s Household] before burying her remains.

    All 17 cameras along the route of the crash were mysteriously turned off and all radio police frequencies went down.

    Witnesses were assaulted and threatened and there was no investigation – not until the inquest 10 years later, which is when most people learned that Diana had penned a note in 1996, saying that someone was going to kill her in a car accident.

    This note was concealed for 6 years.

    At the inquest, experts agreed that Diana would have survived if they had gotten her to a hospital but the blame was put upon a military-style attack.

    According to witnesses, a group of motorcycles, along with a white Fiat Uno worked in concert to crash the car; first, with a blinding flash of light, followed by an explosion fro the front tire of the Mercedes.

    During the inquest, a former MI-6 agent, described being shown the very same plan in 1992, for a possible MI-6 assassination of Slobodon Milosevic and claimed it was MI-6 who killed Diana.

    Because of all this, the inquest ended with the verdict of ‘unlawful killing’, blaming her death on the mysterious military hit squad.

    But the Mainstream Media spun the entire thing to make it sound like it was the paparazzi that caused her to crash, which is demonstrably false.

    And while there was no investigation into finding the members of this military hit squad, three years later, the alleged driver of the white Fiaat, who had ties to MI-6 reportedly committed suicide, after being found shot twice in the back of the head and burned inside of his car.

    During the inquest, many things were kept from the jury, such as the fact that Diana’s seat belt was found to be defective and evidence of the car being sabotaged.

    Interestingly, these things would have brought more suspicion towards Dodi’s father, Mohamed Al-Fayed, who, after turning down repeated offers from the French government to provide security, was solely responsible for Diana’s security detail.

    And at the last minute, had them leave their security detail in front of the hotel as a decoy and take a different car. A car that was recently stolen, broken, repaired and never checked by security.

    Left with only one security guard, they were also assigned a new driver. Henri Paul had no chauffeur permit, was tied to foreign intelligence services, was seen on camera, signaling to someone just before setting off – had received over 50,000 Francs the day of the crash.

    And this was all under the watch of Mohamed Al-Fayed, who is deeply connected to the intelligence community.

    He was business partners with one of Lee Harvey Oswald’s handlers and represented the grandfather of Mohamed Atta but none of that was mentioned in the inquest.

    Instead, with the help of pop culture agents, such as Howard Stern and Piers Morgan, Mohamed Al-Fayed has provided the world with the cover story: that Diana was pregnant with Dodi’s child and Prince Phillip had her killed because he’s racist, which seems like a strange cover story – that is, if you don’t realize that the entire thing was a Satanic ritual.

    Rituals are meant to be witnessed and the death of Diana is steeped in Satanic ritual.

    The Royal Family, originally known as the Saxe-Coburg Gotha bloodline changed their name to Windsor to sound more British.

    Their inbred family is traced back to Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as “Dracula” and with several proud Nazis in the family, including Prince Philip.

    The Royal Family is obsessed with pagan ritual and all things occulted.

    According to the carefully planned breeding of royal bloodlines, the marriage between Diana and Charles was for the Merovingian ancestry of Lady Diana, to be seeded into the Royal Family.

    Diana was well aware of this and referred to herself as the “Windsor Brood Mare”.

    They were married at St Paul’s Cathedral, owned by the Royal Family and built upon the site of a temple dedicated to the goddess, Diana.

    According to occult beliefs, the goddess, Diana was Lucifer’s consort and on August 13th, 1313, they produced a magical daughter named Aradia.

    In Freemasonry, this same trio is known as Osiris, Isis and Horus.

    This same ritual is shown in the Roman Polanski film, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, where the innocent virgin is unknowingly recruited by a Satanic cult to mate with Lucifer and spawn a child.

    After the birth of Prince William, Diana became a threat to the family. She had major influence and used it to shine a light on the Family’s powerful interests, such as the endless war machine.

    Her life was being threatened and she told several friends that the Family was going to kill her.

    Less than a month before her death and after a series of affairs, Diana started seeing family friend, Dodi Fayed and on August 31st, the Satanic ritual sacrifice date for the Goddess Diana, Diana of Wales was driven out of the way, past an Egyptian Obelisk and into a tunnel named in dedication to the Goddess Diana.

    Inside this tunnel, Diana’s Mercedes crashed into the 13th pillar, where she was kept to bleed to death above a known ancient Merovingian underground chamber for the ritual blood sacrifice worship to the Goddess Diana.

    This is the religion of the world’s elite. Prince Phillip said he would like to be reincarnated as a deadly virus to wipe out humanity.

    His underling, Maurice Strong co-founded the World Economic Forum with Klaus Schwab.

    And Prince Charles, who brags of being related to Dracula co-founded the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset Initiative.

    These are the leaders of the so-called New World Order. These monsters are the best that they have.

    Two weeks before the air races at Reno, the favourite/top-seed Unlimited plane went down shortly after taking off, killing the owner pilot. Sounds like he tried to make the ‘impossible turn’ back to the runway. Even more than Juan Browne (this vid), analysis of this incident is in Dan Gryder’s wheelhouse. If Dan makes a vid about this, I will append it.

    RIP. Mr. Smoot (might be pronounced ‘smoat’, if he came from German stock).

    Singer-Songwriter Lorretta Lynn has passed at age 90:

    Loretta Lynn, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ icon and country singer, dead at 90

    Country music legend Loretta Lynn has died at the age of 90.

    The four-time Grammy winner — whose glittering career spanned six decades — passed away Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

    Her family confirmed the news in a statement provided to the Associated Press, but did not disclose a cause of death.

    Lynn — who was raised in rural Kentucky — became a worldwide sensation with her 1971 track “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

    The singer-songwriter — whose own father worked in a coal mine — used her poverty-stricken Appalachian childhood as the basis for dozens of her other hit songs.

    The Country Music Hall of Famer also wrote fearlessly about sex and love, cheating husbands, divorce and birth control — and sometimes got in trouble with radio programmers for material from which even rock performers once shied away.

    Lynn’s other hits included “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” and “You’re Looking at Country.”

    Jerry Lee Lewis died at age 87 at his home in Memphis. The news of his death was reported a couple of days prior by TMZ. Considering the name of his famous 1957 song Great Balls of Fire his death could represent a go code.

    From the first link.
    Quote He grew up in an impoverished farming family in Eastern Louisiana. In his youth, he began playing the piano with two of his cousins, Mickey Gilley (later a popular country music singer) and Jimmy Swaggart (later a popular televangelist). His parents mortgaged their farm to buy him a piano.

    Quote Lewis died at his home in Memphis on Friday morning aged 87
    He was the last survivor of the rock n roll generation that included Elvis
    Once tipped as a successor to Elvis, after 'the King' was drafted into the Army
    But career derailed after bigamist marriage to his 13 year-old cousin emerged

    Quote "Great Balls of Fire" is a 1957 popular song recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis on Sun Records[2] and featured in the 1957 movie Jamboree. It was written by Otis Blackwell and Jack Hammer. The Jerry Lee Lewis 1957 recording was ranked as the 96th greatest song ever by Rolling Stone. The song is in AABA form.[3] The song sold one million copies in its first 10 days of release in the United States making it one of best-selling singles in the United States at that time.

    Dear Friends, GroovieBean posted this a couple of days ago, about ufologist, researcher and artist Jim Nichols. He passed away on 2 January of this year.

    Jim was a wonderful man, and a skilled and inspired UFO illustrator, with whom I had the great pleasure of enjoying a very long lunch at the March 2019 Laughlin UFO Conference. That was the first and only time I met him in person.

    I was unaware he had died — in hospital, of the covid Delta variant. (Yes, this can kill people if their treatment is the wrong one or if not sufficiently quickly administered.)

    In hospital, very sadly, he had little chance. If we'd have known, we could have maybe found a way to help him.

    Mehran Karimi Nasseri aka Lord Alfred has an interesting and bizarre story. He passed recently in the airport of a heart attack. He lived in Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris from 1988-2006 and later returned. His story inspired the movie The Terminal. He claims to be British and not Iranian. If you watch the video, you can tell there's a level of mental illness and denial.

    Dailymail

    Quote Mehran Karemi Nasseri, who now goes by the name "Sir Alfred", has been living in the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. For the past twelve years he has been waiting for the document that would allow him to leave. Unlike the story that has been told in the world press of a man trapped in the underground terminals of an airport, dubbed the, "strangest case in immigration history", this documentary examines the life of a man whose only aspiration is to be somebody else.

    This guy, on rumble as The People's Voice, kicks up some suspicion over things Kirstie Alley said while she was alive.

    He also talks about these follow deaths:
    - Isaac Kappy
    - Paul Walker
    - Anne Heche
    - Chris Cornell
    - Chester Bennington
    - DJ Avicii

    He goes into detail about Anne Heche, sharing that she was a victim of sexual abuse and vowed to protect children from suffering the same as she had.

    Pele was my inspiration for the game of football (soccer as we in North America call it).

    I always wore number 10, his number, and only didn't get to on a couple teams that I played for.

    Every time I put on my jersey I would have a look at the number and would think of him.

    Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a.k.a. Joseph Ratzinger

    Farewell to Benedict XVI: ‘Humble worker in vineyard of the Lord'
    https://www.vaticannews.va/en/vatica...s-aged-95.html
    The 95-year-old Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI passed away on Saturday at 9:34 AM in his residence at the Vatican's Mater Ecclesiae Monastery.

    The Holy See Press Office announced that the Pope Emeritus died at 9:34 AM on Saturday morning in his residence at the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery, which the 95-year-old Pope emeritus had chosen as his residence after resigning from the Petrine ministry in 2013.

    “With sorrow I inform you that the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, passed away today at 9:34 AM in the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in the Vatican. Further information will be provided as soon as possible.  As of Monday morning, 2 January 2023, the body of the Pope Emeritus will be in Saint Peter's Basilica so the faithful can pay their respects."

    News of worsening health condition

    Already for several days, the health conditions of the Pope Emeritus had worsened due to advancing age, as the Press Office had reported in its updates of the evolving situation.

    Pope Francis himself publicly shared the news about his predecessor's worsening health at the end of the last General Audience of the year, on 28 December.

    The Pope had invited people to pray for the Pope Emeritus, who was "very ill," so that the Lord might console him and support him "in this witness of love for the Church until the end."

    Following this invitation, prayer initiatives sprung up and multiplied on all continents, along with an outpouring of messages of solidarity and closeness from secular leaders.

    Funeral plans

    During a briefing at the Holy See Press office at midday, the director, Matteo Bruni, told journalists that Pope Francis will preside over the funeral of the Pope Emeritus on 5 January at 9.30 CET in St. Peter's Square.

    He added that as from Monday, the body of Benedict XVI will be lying in state in the Basilica so that the faithful who wish to do so may pay their last respects with prayers and a final farewell.

    Bruni also said the Pope Emeritus on Wednesday, 28th in the afternoon, received the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick in the monastery at the end of Holy Mass.

    And speaking to reporters after the briefing he said Benedict specifically asked that everything - including the funeral - be marked by simplicity, just as he lived his life.
