Ukraine War Is Depleting U.S. Ammunition Stockpiles, Sparking Pentagon Concern

WSJ | August 29, 2022

The war in Ukraine has depleted American stocks of some types of ammunition and the Pentagon has been slow to replenish its arsenal, sparking concerns among U.S. officials that American military readiness could be jeopardized by the shortage.

The U.S. has during the past six months supplied Ukraine with 16 U.S. rocket launchers, known as Himars, thousands of guns, drones, missiles and other equipment. Much of that, including ammunition, has come directly from U.S. inventory, depleting stockpiles intended for unexpected threats, defense officials say.

One of the most lethal weapons the Pentagon has sent are howitzers that fire high-explosive 155mm ammunition weighing about 100 pounds each and able to accurately hit targets dozens of miles away. As of Aug. 24, the U.S. military said it had provided Ukraine with up to 806,000 rounds of 155mm ammunition. The U.S. military has declined to say how many rounds it had at the start of the year.

In recent weeks, the level of 155mm combat rounds in U.S. military storage have become “uncomfortably low,” one defense official said. The levels aren’t yet critical because the U.S. isn’t engaged in any major military conflict, the official added. “It is not at the level we would like to go into combat,” the defense official said.


A Critique of Discordianism: Bad News, But Things to be Learned and Used

Discordianism is the modern evolution of the flower power revolution. In the 1980s, Timothy Leary reemerged as a spokesperson of the “cyberdelic” counterculture, whose adherents were self-described “cyberpunks,” with an interest in computers and psychedelics. Leary proclaimed to the bohemian-hipster crowd that “the PC is the LSD of the 1990s” and to “turn on, boot up, jack in.”

Discordians then peddled mind-control themes of transhumanism, such as navel gazing smart drugs, virtual reality, cyberpunk, interactive media, aphrodisiacs, artificial life, nanotechnology, brain implants, life extension, as well as designer aphrodisiacs, psychedelics and techno-erotic paganism.

According to Robert Anton Wilson, however, “Many people consider discordianism a complicated joke disguised as a new religion. I prefer to consider it a new religion disguised as a complicated joke.”

Discordianism comes with the hipster-trickster archetype: figures like Robert Anton Wilson, Timothy Leary, Terence McKenna, Hunter S. Thompson. See [Hunter S. Thompson: Dark Accounts and Suspicious Demise]. In my view, it’s an extension of the culture of critique, or cultural Marxism. It uses mockery to tear down the system. It also uses no rules diversion to deflect away from real problems of a Crime Syndicate-infected world.

Chaos Magic

Leary’s eight-circuit model of consciousness is prominent in chaos magic, having been detailed in “Chaotopia!” by Dave Lee, a leading member of the Illuminates of Thanateros (IOT), a secret society of chaos magic. Members included not only Timothy Leary but also Robert Anton Wilson and William S. Burroughs.

Ian Bear referred to it in the neo-pagan journal Green Egg as “divine irreverence”:

On a larger scale the chaos magician is able to work vast changes unattainable through ordinary, orderly means. Where chaotic systems exist, it is now well-known that in the right place, a small flutter can transform the entire system. This is known in chaos science as the butterfly effect. In these fast changing times, at this crossroads of history, in this time of crisis and opportunity, our entire society is a chaotic system. By observing society keenly, and choosing the appropriate moment for the golden apple to be launched, the chaos magician can work great changes in society through the social butterfly effect.

Cacophony Society

Another offshoot of discordian thinking is the Cacophony Society, sometimes dubbed the Suicide Club. In its more benign form, it’s the live-for-today worldview of the pajama people, or those who could give a shit about their future bloodline generations or of others’. In its worst form, this is worldview of Dr. George Hodel, Israel Keyes and Jimmy Savile, et all who we have addressed in recent posts. In all its forms, it’s ultra-rebellionism.

Some discordians do supposedly care about the environment — but more as neo-paganism and earth worship, not as stewardship to be passed on to your bloodline and mankind in general.

James Lovelock and the Anti-Human Gaia Subterfuge

Novelist Chuck Palahniuk used the society as the basis for the fictional organization Project Mayhem in his novel “Fight Club.” But net-net, those “Fight Club” characters were superegos and attention seekers more caught up in their own Israel Keyes-Dr. Hodel-Jimmy Savile style grandiosity and gratification- than anything constructive or heroic.

This is not just hipster talk- and for Third Position stewardship-minded people, more typical of Winter Watch readers, this is all too real. But, for us, there are some concepts we can take away and use to both protect ourselves and go more on the offensive.

Chaos magic holds that the belief itself is powerful even if the belief is incorrect. This also ties into the concept of egregore.

The message for us is to overcome personal indifference of the tuned-out people around us. I actually think the motif of “Fight Club” utilizing Third Position belief systems can be powerful. The other aspect of chaos magic to effect change is symbolism. We saw this in the misuse of kek and the pepe frog symbolism used in the Alt-Right Trumptard movement.

The following video is both illustrative and informative about what we are up against, as well as some tactics we can adapt for our concept of constructive change. The speaker, a hipster gal named Autumn Tyr-Salvia, well articulates the tactics and methods of discordianism. There are several good chuckles to be had as well.

Much of this, such as the no-message diversionary-protest signs, is just self-centered stupidity, but some is quite smart. There are things to learn here. One tactic is cultural jamming, or introducing noise into the system. The offshoot of this is jam-art, or the anti-message.

One cultural jamming group that was constructive were the Ad Busters, who created some classics such as Joe Chemo (see image above) and Buy Nothing Xmas- (shown at right).

BOOTED OUT: Army whistleblower faces involuntary separation for telling the truth about COVID-19

(Natural News) First Lt. Mark Bashaw, a preventive medicine officer in the Army, is now facing involuntary separation for disobeying Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) protocol. He is the whistleblower who noticed the sudden increase in diseases in the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED).

“The DMED, which tracks disease and injuries of 1.3 million active component service members, showed during the pandemic a significant surge in reports of cancers, myocarditis, and pericarditis, as well as some other diseases like male infertility, tumors, a lung disease caused by blood clots and HIV,” Bashaw said.

For example, the number of cancer cases among active service members in 2021 nearly tripled as compared to the average number of cancer instances per year from 2016 to 2020.

Bashaw’s whistleblower declaration was submitted to Senator Ron Johnson, who is facilitating the sharing of information from the early investigations of COVID-19 products with Congress.

However, a week after this information was brought out in January in a “COVID-19: Second Opinion” roundtable organized by Johnson, the data in DMED changed. All of the troubling spikes in diseases and injuries “seemed to have disappeared and been realigned with previous years,” Bashaw said.

Johnson sent three letters to the Department of Defense (DoD) requesting an explanation of the sudden increase in medical diagnosis and the changes in the DMED data. He also sent a letter to the technology company that manages DMED, asking for clarification of all data integrity issues in the database.


DoD spokesperson Major Charlie Dietz told the Epoch Times that the DMED data “was incorrect for the years 2016-2020,” so the system was taken offline to correct the root cause of the data corruption, which didn’t impact data from 2021.

Bashaw disputed the “glitch” and pulled up data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, where an average of the last 24 years to data for 2021 has been found to have an 11-fold increase in the number of suspected adverse incidents reported in 2021.

“I compared it to the average of the last 24 years, it’s a 1,100 percent increase in 2021. And the only difference we had in 2021 was the rollout of these experimental emergency uses authorized COVID-19 vaccines,” he said.

He also raised his concerns to his superiors through the proper channels, but they were never addressed. Instead, “I was targeted due to my own vaccination status,” the medical officer said.

Judge recommends dropping Bashaw’s conviction

Bashaw was court-martialed and later convicted for disobeying the mandated COVID-19 protocol. The judge did not hand down any punishment and recommended to the commanding general to drop the conviction.

But the general upheld the conviction instead.

As soon as he was declared guilty, the Army initiated his involuntary separation after 17 years of honorable service, withholding the lieutenant’s expected promotion to captain.

He lodged a whistleblower complaint at DoD, but the decision was made that there was no retaliation against him and the case was closed out. The serviceman then filed another complaint, which exercises his right guaranteed by the code of military justice to challenge such decisions.

Recently, Bashaw also petitioned the Army’s judge advocate general, asking the high-ranking official to review what he has brought forth in the official documentation. Bashaw pointed out he would not be risking 17 years of his service and the health and welfare of his family on some flimsy argument.

“I will absolutely do everything in my power to warn my brothers and sisters in uniform. And that’s my job as a medical officer, to communicate risks and potential harms,” Bashaw said. “That is my duty.”
