On the Eastern Front

Fierce fighting in eastern Ukraine amid signs Russia plans war-anniversary offensive

From the article:

The situation on the front line in eastern Ukraine has become tougher, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on February 1 as Russian forces pressed ahead with efforts on the ground to capture towns and cities in the Donetsk region while continuing air strikes against other locations.

The General Staff of Ukraine’s military said in its daily report early on February 1 that the enemy “has not paused its offensive actions in the Lyman and Bakhmut directions” in the eastern region of Donetsk.

Russia also kept pressing its attacks on the town of Vuhledar, some 150 kilometers southeast of the fighting in and around Bakhmut, which has been the focal point of the monthslong battle in Donetsk.

“A definite increase has been noted in the offensive operations of the occupiers on the front in the east of our country. The situation has become tougher,” Zelenskiy said in his evening video address.

Zelenskiy said the Russians were trying to make gains that they could show on the first anniversary of the war on February 24….


Is there an anniversary part in the making?

On The Western Front

Then here the Great 2023 Balloon Crises

Biden admin to postpone Blinken’s China trip over spy balloon: Report

Guess they don’t want more hot air to follow a balloon full of Goodyear’s Blimp balloon gas! Is our military so high tech and woked out that they cannot think of firing a single nonexplosive bullet into the Chinese balloon to let the helium gas leak out bringing it down slowly so they can study the equipment? Probably our tech anyway! Or, is it that they only know how to blow things up or out of the sky? Maybe JB he should check with the Trans-Sec and ask why its flight wasn’t cancelled.


They blew it out of the sky!

And now, the hot air leaks!?!?

CNN truth????

Military Experts Issue Warnings on Possible US-China Conflict After Spy Balloon Shot Down

From the article:

Several former military officials said that the United States could face significant shortfalls if there is ever a conflict with the Chinese regime over Taiwan, coming as U.S. military jets shot down a Chinese spy balloon that drifted across the United States.

“Unfortunately, talking broadly and in overall terms, the Chinese have dramatically increased their air, sea, space, cyber, and missile capabilities in the last couple of decades,” James Anderson, acting undersecretary of defense for policy under President Donald Trump, told Fox News.

“In some of the scenarios that could happen, we might well be at a competitive disadvantage initially because they have home-field advantage in terms of their capacity to quickly mobilize local forces,” he said, “and that’s really important to the [Chinese military].”

Last week, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the new chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the House of Representatives, said the odds of conflict with China over Taiwan “are very high” after a U.S. general released a memo about a potential conflict with the regime in 2025.

Gen.  Mike Minihan, who heads the Air Mobility Command, wrote to the leadership of its roughly 110,000 members, saying, “My gut tells me we will fight in 2025.”

“I hope he is wrong … I think he is right, though,” McCaul said in an interview last week….


More tail wagging the dog?

Then this….

From the article:

…They charged the same scenario occurred on Trump’s watch, that China’s balloons crossed the United States, but without any news reporting.

Trump and his staff have denied they ever were told about them.

And now a report at the Gateway Pundit reveals a detail that should alarm Americans: Military leaders knew about the balloons while Trump was in office but withheld the information from the commander in chief….


Will something it the fan about this????

Meanwhile, from the middle of east and west…

Muslims killing Muslims????

Japan, India hold first joint air drill as China concerns grow

From the article:

Japan and India held their first joint air drills in an area outside of Tokyo as both countries step up military exercises with other countries amid worries about China’s assertiveness.

About four F-2 and four F-15 fighters are expected to take part in the drills that started Monday and will run through around Jan. 26 at an airbase in Ibaraki prefecture, northeast of Tokyo, Japan’s Defense Ministry said. While the two have trained together before in other countries, this is the first one-on-one training of its sort, it said.

The exercise comes as Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida completed a trip this month to Italy, the U.K., Canada and the U.S. to bolster his country’s alliances to help deter China. Japan is also a member of the Quad grouping that includes India, Australia and the US and is seen as a check on Beijing’s assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific.

The joint drills with India grew out of a security meeting in New Delhi in November 2019 but had been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kyodo News reported. Kyodo added India is the fifth country Japan has hosted in this type of bilateral exercise after the US, Australia, Britain and Germany, citing the Defense Ministry.

India is fielding Russian-made fighters, Su-30Mki and US-made C-17 Globemaster heavy lift transport aircraft in the maiden exercise, air force spokesman Wing Commander Ashish Moghe said. The two sides will carry out air complex combat drills and exchange best practices reflecting their growing defense cooperation, he said…


Looks like the only ones winning the current war games are the Russian, USA and other national Military Industrial Complex investors!!

A Global Military Industrial Complex?

On The Home Front

There have been 39 mass shootings in the US so far in 2023, according to the Gun Violence Archive. The latest mass shooting in Half Moon Bay, California, left 7 people dead and 1 injured. Experts expect the statistics for 2023 to look similar to 2022 and 2021, despite recent gun reform.

Mass shootings 2023 to date

Then there’s dosmestic terriorism…

2 arrested in plot to attack power grid in Maryland

From the article:

A man and woman were arrested and charged in an alleged “hate-fueled” conspiracy to attack the Maryland power grid and leave thousands without electricity.

Brandon Clint Russell of Orlando, Florida and Sarah Beth Clendaniel of Catonsville, Maryland have both been charged with conspiracy to destroy an energy facility, the FBI’s Baltimore field office and U.S. attorney in Maryland announced Monday.

If convicted, they each face a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, according to a press release provided to American Military News.

“This planned attack threatened lives and would have left thousands of Marylanders in the cold and dark,” Maryland U.S. Attorney Erek Barron said in the release.

Their arrests came a month after two men were charged over Christmas Day attacks on four power substations in Washington State. Those attacks had come just weeks after tens of thousands of people lost power when “targeted” gunfire took out two North Carolina substations….


I remember those,

one was Kinston, NC – next county north!

Something fishy going on in Canada…

From the article:

…According to the CBC, the fire was the fourth fish plant fire in the region including two fires that took place in 2021 and one from 2019.

After the second of the 2021 fires, which took place on two successive weekends, Louise Landry, mayor of the village of Beaubassin-est, said the incidents were unusual, according to CBC.

There should be an investigation, it’s very odd that there is a epidemic of fish plant fires in this village.

“We’re quite concerned,” she said at the time….


Have used fish emulsion fertilizer and it never exploded.


Isaiah 56

KJV(i) 1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. 2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. 3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. 4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; 5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. 6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; 7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. 8 The Lord GOD, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him. 9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. 10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. 12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
