Dear Mathew

I am happy you appreciated the apology.

You didn’t need to look me up on google to find out who I am, you could’ve just emailed me directly as my email is on your subscriber log.

Sincerely,

Joseph Fraiman

I can't say for sure if I'm just traumatized by the actions of my (Canadian) government, but I don't believe this is the end of covid. Nobody has been held accountable and in fact they have successfully implanted the idea to the public that these were "acceptable measures in difficult times". I fully expect more mandates and more impositions as the public has showed that they don't really care about liberty or even having rights.

As someone with a huge passion for tools and technology it has really made me face the stark realty that the culture matters, and it much harder to change than simply adopting a brand new solution. I am still trying to learn what that means in terms of what I should do about what is going on.

Dr. Fraiman was so moving, his apology was so incredibly gracious and he inspires hope to imagine others can see differently in time too. Don't tell Steve and spoil the energy but he's got a hedge; it's archived at Wayback for those who prefer not to play beat the clock with the content police! :~)

Glad to know I'm not the only person who has 7 browser windows and 200 tabs open. What we need is an intelligent filing markup language for web pages, emails etc. A system where when you click add to favourites it organizes the entry within a fully classified path and shows you where it has been put. This could be smart in that it within trees it would only create and move content to sub folders as enough entries accumulated.

Yes the apology was outstanding.

I wish I can shake his hand one day. We need more people like that.

Was also delighted to to hear from so many experts that are new to me.

Why has WEF taken down Putin as former Young Global Leader?

It's easy for those of us in the US to lose perspective on the nature and reality of "war". It must be pointed out that Russia has not done any of the things which the US would do, such as destroy the civilian infrastructure from the air, then roll in and mop up. Since the coup the US staged in Ukraine 8 years ago, where they used actual neo-Nazi insurgents, then installed an actor (portraying a president) under the same party name used in his television show https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3305952/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 , the US has used Ukraine to move weapons right up against the Russian border, and the Ukr government has been perpetrating nonstop violence against ethnic Russians. If the roles were reversed, under no circumstances would the US be expected to allow what Russia is now expected to allow.

"I sometimes ponder the notion that the world leaders might all have gotten together, shared their ugly war simulations, agreed about the utter chaos and destruction the next conflict would entail" <- this, exactly, and that includes both the West *and* Putin.

This "invasion" is merely another in a string of engineered pretexts to cover the collapse of the US Dollar economy. Ice Age Farmer does excellent analysis on the food and supply chain aspect- https://youtu.be/_F6ilTV3rpY

Word to the wise: don’t write about Ukraine.

"As a result, Russia is said to have lost 12,000 troops and a hefty pile of war machinery from a military force of 230,000."

Really? Do you believe even half this number? Please, do some analysis here. How many servicemembers did we lose in our 20 year engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan? While numbers vary on the interwebs they all come to less than 10,000. And we're expected to believe that Russia has lost 1200 per day? The propaganda around this conflict is unlike anything I have ever seen, heard or read about in modern military history.

> 12,000 troops dead

> Russia cut off from the internet

Also, yes, the Ghost of Kiev destroyed 100 Russian planes and Russia blew up 2 nuclear reactors just because.

Jesus, Mathew, you should know better after the past 2 years than to believe everything you hear on the news.

Wait! We know the Covid narrative was a lie but we believe the media regarding the situation in Ukraine?

You realize if Russia were to have lost 12,000 troops that would be 2.5 times the amount we lost at Normandy.

What’s the likelihood of that ?

New Zealand police smashed up the Freedom protests with brutality, violence and lots of pepper spray. The New Zealand police did this the day after the Police + Military won in court to have enforced mandates repealed - they are the only sector to win in against mandates in a New Zealand court.

I believe that these crises are all planned by faceless shadowy beings pulling the strings of all the world's 'leaders'. The aims are massive depopulation and complete control of those 'humans' that remain.

Dr. Fraiman is a brave man. He is in Louisiana which has worse laws then California when it comes to Covid vaccines in children. The people in this state are fighting tooth and nail to protect our children but the Governor and state public health department are ramming this shot thru our state. We need a lot more doctors like him to refuse to harm our children. Pray for Louisiana please.
