A UK analysis company has confirmed just over one year after banning drugs inside the country, the Taliban Government has managed to reduce poppy cultivation by 99%.
Alcis reports that an effective ban on poppy cultivation is in place and that opium production in 2023 will be negligible compared to 2022. High resolution imagery analyzed by the firm shows that in the province of Helmand, poppy cultivation was reduced from 120,000 hectares in 2022 to less than 1,000 hectares in 2023. This amounts to the largest reduction in poppy cultivation ever recorded in the country, including after the Taliban banned poppy production in 2000, one year before losing power following the 2001 US invasion.
As a result, wheat cultivation now dominates provinces in the south and southwest, where some 80% of Afghanistan’s total poppy crop had previously been grown.
The Afghans are getting better at feeding themselves, that’s a no-no for
WEF globalists climate advocates.
Isn’t it funny that the US couldn’t achieve a reduction in drug cultivation in Afghanistan despite controlling the country for 20+ years.
The BBC noted that the loss of supply of Afghan heroin may lead to increases in the “synthetic drugs, which can be far more nasty than opium,” among US and European drug users.
The BBC noted further that “opium was also grown freely in areas controlled by the US-backed former Afghan regime, something the BBC witnessed prior to the Taliban takeover in 2021.”
As the SEC launches action against both Binance and Coinbase for selling unregistered securities (shitcoins), this is your periodic reminder that your Bitcoin is not safe on exchanges that are subject to hacks, government action, seizures and any other sort of enforcement measures and restrictions on user either the exchanges themselves or the government may decide to come up with.
Bitcoin is designed for self custody and self sovereignty without the need to trust third parties.
A new report out from ARK with their addressable Bitcoin market predictions for 2030. The bear case looks quite conservative and shows you the real potential in the coming decade.
Whether ARK will still be around in 2030 to see this remains to be seen.
The rankings of countries by economic freedom including factors like property rights, tax burdens and labor freedom show a dangerous sign of where much of the world is heading - more political and economic oppression as the wheels continue to fall off the fiat inflationary debt spirals.
Dropping out of 'free’ to only ‘mostly free’ include New Zealand, Estonia and Luxembourg. Huge slides coming from Australia, Germany, Canada, Latvia, Iceland and Lithuania. Those being relegated from ‘mostly free’ to only ‘moderately free’ include the UK, Georgia and Malta. Some of the very few countries that actually improved their rankings includes United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, Qatar and Costa Rica.

The destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam and subsequent flooding including large swaths of Russian land which lies on the lower bank of the river.
Then like clockwork, Western accusations it was the Russians that did it.
Russia forces control the territory which voted to join the Russian Federation, the water supplies Crimea, cools the Russia Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, and now occupies Russian forces with rescuing civilians and pulling back.
Cui bono - Russia, Ukraine or the Western deep state? Gaslighting from the West has become a pathetic joke. The whaling and gnashing of teeth now from Western media is intense, but strangely there didn’t seem to be much moral outrage when Ukraine trialed attacking the same dam last year:
Big Serge goes through the logic of both sides here for those interested, including the main piece of ‘evidence’:
Essentially, we are being asked to believe that there is a Russian soldier out there who is giving interviews to Ukrainian media in which he confesses to all of Russia’s nefarious activities, and then goes about his duties without being stopped or punished. It should be pretty obvious that Yegor is actually Yehor, and is not a Russian soldier at all but a Ukrainian impersonator - funnily enough, Yegor also has a beard even though the Russian MOD has been cracking down on facial hair.
In any case, Yegor’s explosive interview is the main piece of direct evidence which is being used to prove that Russia blew up the dam.
In contrast, the evidence implicating Ukraine is pretty straightforward: they openly talked about experimenting with ways to breach the dam, and have actively shot rockets and artillery shells at it in the past.
Yet Western propaganda repeatedly wants you to swallow the line that all manner of evil and stupidity is being carried out by the Russians, because…. well they’re Russian. Surely that’s reason enough?
The attack on this dam is just another in a series of attempts by or purportedly on behalf of Ukraine since the war started to create a humanitarian disaster which would necessitate the entry of ‘western peacekeepers’ - otherwise known as NATO soldiers - officially, instead of covertly (previous attempts include shelling the nuclear power plant, multiple war crime false flags, accusations of rape etc).
Cui bono - who benefits from hundreds of thousands of slavs dying on both sides? Neither Ukraine or Russia. UK, EUSSR and US establishment figures on the other hand… This will likely be another case of Ukrainian puppets ultimately being thrown under the bus in the months ahead as they are now for the Nordstream II pipeline attack, also carried out by the Brits and US.
The dam burst also threatens grain production and storage in the region, an added bonus for the eugenicists amongst the WEF clan intent on making food chains ever more fragile.
For the moment, Swede’s are still opting to maintain some semblance of sovereignty. But it will continue to be chipped away at each year until the people ‘get it right.’
UK War Capacity
It appears one of the world’s chief war mongers is no longer capable of producing large caliber gun barrels BAE Systems admits of the UK.
While great emphasis is being placed on NATO supplying Ukraine with armoured fighting vehicles, artillery and massive amounts of ammunition and other equipment, little thought has been given to the supply of replacement barrels for these systems.
Boris Johnson is leaving parliament after being told he’ll be sanctioned for
lying to misleading parliament.
This isn’t that exciting, after all Boris was just another in a long line of compliant political front men pushing an agenda handed to them from above. What is concerning is where he’ll end up next. Those like Boris or van Der Lyin who demonstrate their loyalty to the globalist regime in spite of gross negligence or stupidity usually ‘fail up.’
I would not be surprised to see Boris land a job at NATO, the IMF, UN or any other of the Bilderberg alphabet soup front bodies. That’s when further damage and mayhem will really ensue.
The US banking crisis is not over. Some weeks we’re flooded with headlines, other weeks ‘everything is fine.’
End of Empire
Bread, circuses and distraction…
