russians are trolling n training their forces in GENERAL n making west lose sleep n money. West is over-reacting. Russia said they wont invade..why would they invade n RISK losing global support? West seems to have ulterior motives here clearly! perhaps to ignore covid variant threats n talk war war war to cover its failure to contain variants.. while big pharma issues renamed version of vaccine to make more trillions. cuz booster is not a seller...they need new NAME vaccine to have everyone get it to fulfill mandates rules n make pfizers $ disclaimer: i have no dog in this fight..just a conscious observant.

I really enjoy this podcast. Just want to add that some Australians want Novak to be allowed to stay and play. He is being banned on principle, not to preserve health. part of our government's control mechanism to coerce vaccination.

No mention of the current role Berlusconi is leaving at EU? Perhaps a story is due on how many MEPs have such colourful pasts, criminal records, radical right connections??
