“In France, consultancy firms have been paid billions of euros to advise governments on policies from the coronavirus vaccine, to climate change, and vaccine roll-out, as well as digital transformation, according to a new report released by the French Senate. While the financial sums are staggering, the real scandal is the level of influence on policy that these shadowy corporate actors wield deep inside the halls of government.
The revelations contained in this report are extraordinary, and expose the inner workings of the highest echelons of the French state, in what can only be described as the near-complete corporate capture of the bureaucracy. What has been revealed is breathtaking, and opens the door to what could be one of the most consequential scandals in decades.”
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
Macron is implicated in this scandal, and this news comes just nine days before French elections. In the case of France, McKinsey have colonised French ministries. It should be noted that the lock-step synchronised approach taken by many western governments towards imposing Covid lockdowns, mask wearing, social distancing on citizens, public messaging and mandatory vaccination, suggests an over-arching co-ordination by a single entity. It should also be noted that McKinsey are the logistical partner for Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum.”

He could be something of an acquired taste, and a bit tone deaf sometimes…but I find this to be really sad news.
Lots of crazies with a death wish, wanting to drag everybody else down with them.
There’s a lot which is not being reported about this war…I don’t even know that there are any good actors in any of this…I cannot recognize them.
To examine the situation in Ukraine at present, it is a good idea to explore the region’s history and the trigger of this present conflict. The history of the Ukraine region itself is easily available online. The trigger of the conflict is also no secret, it relates directly to the animosity between N.A.T.O. and Russia. Most would agree that it was a mistake for Russia to invade Ukraine; most should also agree that it was a mistake for Zelensky to openly admire N.A.T.O. and to seek Ukrainian membership within it. It is this public application to N.A.T.O. (stated by all at the time as being an impossible dream) that was the trigger that caused Putin to suffer a “break-down” and launch the invasion.
There are many absurd theories about why the Russian invasion has opted to choose the letter “Z” as it’s brand, most of them being cryptic and…

“US Government officials have revealed that, in an effort to counter Russian propaganda, the United States has been issuing propaganda of its own about Russia, Vladimir Putin and events in Ukraine. It’s a stunning admission from an administration that has consistently pushed the line that Russia is the only source of propaganda that matters in this conflict. Meanwhile, the American media passes along this revelation as a great strategic move from the US, as opposed to what it is, a major disinformation campaign.

“The Secrets of Dumbledore will remain a secret… in China. Yes, Warner Bros. cut 6 seconds of Fantastic Beasts 3 for its Chinese release. It was two whole lines of dialogue confirming that Dumbledore is gay and had a relationship with Grindelwald. Business before pleasure, eh Hollywood?”
