by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

On the morning of June 30, 2022, the Supreme Court struck down four lower court rulings in the 9th Circuit, 3rd Circuit, and 4th Circuit.

Dmitri Trenin: Russia has made a decisive break with the West and is ready to help shape a new world order

from RT:

It’s perhaps hard to believe now but – only eight years ago – Russia was a full member of the former G8. Since then, there have been dramatic changes.

Just before the G7 leaders met at Elmau Castle in Bavaria last week, their counterparts from the five BRICS countries held an online summit under the Chinese presidency. Russia had been discussed as a threat at the G7 gathering but was a key participant in the latter.

Here’s a link to the article Sputnik published. They give me pretty much the second half of the article.

The Kremlin’s Hesitancy and Prevarication Is a Road to War

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

The Kremlin emanates confusion.  The Kremlin is doing its best to appease the West, and the West won’t let them.  Just consider the matter of Russia servicing its foreign debt.  The West has done everything possible to prevent Russia from servicing her debt, and Russia has done everything possible to turn its money over to the same West that has stolen $300 billion of Russia’s foreign reserves and is pummeling Russia with sanctions, blockades of one part of Russia to another, of massive insults, designating the Russian President Putin as a war criminal that must be tried in an international tribunal, and now a Finnish mayor  on Russia’s border is advocating a NATO military base in his town even though NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that nuclear weapons might be deployed in Finland and Sweden.  https://sputniknews.com/20220703/finland-mayor-mulls-placing-nato-base-directly-on-russian-border-1096913804.html

Will Pfizer Be Charged for Mislabeling Vaccine Side Effects?

by Dr. Joseph Mercola, Mercola:

STORY AT-A-GLANCE
  • Pfizer classified almost all severe adverse events that occurred during its Phase 3 trials as unrelated to the injection. A 2,566-page document catalogues serious adverse events and six deaths during the trial. These events were all classified as “toxicity level 4,” which is the most serious, yet none of them was deemed related to the injection
  • Examples of Level 4 adverse events — all of which were written off as “not related” to the mRNA injection — include acute respiratory failure, cardiac arrest, brain abscess, adrenal carcinoma (adrenal cancer) and chronic myeloid leukemia (blood and bone marrow cancer)

Bank of Japan is buying up it’s own government’s debt: Bond holdings top 50% for first time

by Cassie B., Natural News:

The share of Japanese government bonds that are held by the Bank of Japan has now exceeded 50 percent. The record-setting high comes as the central bank doubles down on its government debt purchases with the aim of holding down long-term interest rates as part of its ultra-loose monetary policy.

The Bank of Japan’s move to buy up Japanese government bonds is leading to a series of distortions within the bond market. These include an inverted yield curve that sees the interest rate on certain short-term bonds exceeding that of long-term bonds. It is also accelerating the depreciation of the Japanese yen against other currencies.

How Long Before Putin Shuts Off Natural Gas Delivery to Europe?

by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:

Here are the two key questions of the day Europe needs to address: How long and what’s the economic impact?

Key EU Natural Gas Points 

  • The long term average of of natural gas price in the EU is in the 12-15 range. It’s now 148.
  • The EU is paying 10 to 12 times its long-term average
  • Since June 8 (blue box) the price rose from 79 to 148, a rise of 87 percent.

Before addressing what happens if and when Putin shuts off natural gas to Europe, let’s take a look at what’s happening in the US.

The price units are not the same so it’s best to think in percentage terms.
