April 2, 2022:

How do I do it? You mean aside from my network of informants located all around the globe?

Easy. I just read the media for rich crooks. Rich crooks tend to get a warning before important things happen. They started talking about Putin’s family two weeks ago on the mailing list rich guys are on to find out if their trafficked underage sex slaves are about to talk.

In this amazing Journal piece, the “journalists” detail the various locations that Putin’s “girlfriend” and his daughters and sons will be throughout their day, even mentioning possible locations for the snipers. The bit of nature writing about the lake was a nice touch I think.

They took Pablo Escobar’s wife and children into protective custody too, then announced it in the media, and said they would wait until he gives himself up, which he did.

This sort of thing is considered a “scandal” but if they drop bombs on your kids they are just “collateral damage.”

Breaking the gentleman’s agreement that only the proles die, that is a breakdown of civilization. Barbarism. That’s why we need to go back to monarchies, or whatever.

You can tell this war is for real:

  1. They stopped Central Bank payments.
  2. Switzerland – Global Spook Central and formerly the safe boarding school for the oligarch’s children – dropped the pretense of neutrality.
  3. They are threatening each other’s kids.

I would rather they kill each other’s families than ours, so I guess I’m not even really complaining.

Putin’s daughter is kind of cute, though. I’d prefer she marry some handsome Swiss guy and pop out a bunch of cute little half Swiss half Russian kids instead of everybody killing each other, but that’s just me. I’m a peacenik liberal hipster, after all.

I’m not a fighter, I’m a lover!
