Yet Another, Authorized for Emergency Use, Experimental Vaccine. Johnson & Johnson.

 Johnson & Johnson's authorization brings the total to 3 experimental vaccines being injected into humanity.  Before we all read about this latest emergency use authorization, refresh your memory or enlighten yourself by reading the report from October 13/20: Johnson and Johnson Halts Late Stage Covid Vaccine Trial After “Mystery Illness”

"Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, said by email that “Everybody is on the alert because of what happened with AstraZeneca,” adding that it could take a week to gather information.

“It would have to be a serious adverse event. If it was something like prostate cancer, uncontrolled diabetes or a heart attack - they wouldn’t stop it for any of those reasons. This is likely to be a neurological event,” he said"

 Bearing in mind that Johnson and Johnson is not a company you should put any faith in.

From J&J - one more acronym for the ongoing list: SAE (serious adverse event).

They're not detailing the problem because they need to protect the participant's privacy.

Their major words of comfort are to their investors. They make it clear it's only a "study pause", not a "regulatory" order forced on them. So carry on; no big deal.

 True believers need not read the information below. For anyone else who is sane and sentient... check out this latest abuse of humanity

Anthony Fauci has been championing this one for a while: NIH
"Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to the Janssen Pharmaceuticals Companies of Johnson & Johnson for its single-shot COVID-19 vaccine, called Ad.26.COV2S or JNJ-78436725. The Janssen vaccine is a recombinant vector vaccine that uses a human adenovirus to express the spike protein found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Adenoviruses are a group of viruses that cause infections in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts; the adenovirus vector used in the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine has been modified so it no longer can replicate in humans and cause illness. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, supported late-stage clinical testing of the Janssen vaccine. It is the third COVID-19 vaccine in the United States to be granted an EUA by FDA. NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D. Ph.D., NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., and BARDA Director Gary Disbrow, Ph.D., released the following statements:

“This week marked a devastating milestone of 500,000 deaths from COVID-19 here in the United States. The loss attributed to the disease is almost unfathomable. To have a third vaccine that meets the expectations of an EUA for safety and effectiveness at preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19 brings us one step closer to protecting the American public, staying ahead of concerning viral variants, and finding our way out of the pandemic. I would like to thank the clinical staff who conducted the clinical trials of the vaccine as well as the thousands of study participants who helped us find the scientific answers necessary to reach this important day.” – NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D.

“The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is a very welcome addition to the arsenal of COVID-19 vaccines and other prevention strategies. When tested among 45,000 volunteers, the single-injection vaccine proved 77 percent effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 85 percent effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 28 days after vaccination. The vaccine was approximately 67 percent effective in preventing moderate-to-severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 66 percent effective in preventing moderate-to-severe/critical COVID-19 disease occurring at least 28 days after vaccination. Importantly, the vaccine was 100 percent effective in protecting against death from the disease everywhere it was tested. In addition to meeting the expectations of safety and effectiveness to support emergency use authorization, the Janssen vaccine has the advantage of requiring only a single injection and can be easily transported and stored without special refrigeration requirements. To get control of the COVID-19 pandemic, stay ahead of worrisome viral mutations, and protect the American public, we must vaccinate as many Americans as we can as quickly as possible. The Janssen vaccine provides yet another option to help achieve those goals.” – NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.           

The FDA’s emergency use authorization of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is exciting news on many fronts. A single dose vaccine stored at refrigerated temperatures and that prevents hospitalizations and deaths from COVID has the potential to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the U.S. and globally. Janssen and BARDA have a history of working together, developing treatments and vaccines for influenza and Ebola. To manufacture their COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, Janssen is working with resources we established after the 2009 influenza pandemic: our Centers for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing and our fill-finish manufacturing network. With the development of this vaccine, we are seeing the results of years of work on platform technologies and public-private partnerships coming to fruition.” – BARDA Director Gary Disbrow, Ph.D.

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., is Director of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Armenia: The Push to Toss Pashinyan is still active

From earlier today!

  1. 10 Dead With Vaccine in Canada- Adverse Reactions Continue Their Higher then Norm Pattern

  2. Israel ESTIMATES Ship Explosion in Gulf of Oman was Iranian Attack- False Flag/False Crisis

Pashinyan is looking powerless right now

Unless he’s got some cards still left to play? We shall see. The opposition doesn’t look to forceful either. Unless the military gets active? Pashinyan is trying to prevent this uniting of forces.

Pashinyan wanted to sack the leadership of the military. The President refused to take the necessary actions..

Link

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian President Armen Sarkissian has sent the proposal to sack the chief of Army General Staff, Colonel-General Onik Gasparyan back to Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, his office said Saturday, February 27.

Pashinyan is going to re submit the proposal
"The President decided to send back to the Prime Minister a draft decree on dismissal of the chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces. This step does not contribute to solving the current situation. I am resending to the President the request to dismiss the chief of the General Staff, expecting it to be signed in accordance with the established procedure," he noted.
The media rumour mill about the Iskander missile failures was, in my opinion, disinfo.
Enabling western media to blame Russia for this attempted coup- I simply don’t see this as credible.
 

 The so called civilian opposition, along side the military, is demanding Pashinyan step down.

JamestownJamestownPt2

There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of popular support. Perhaps Armenians are looking to have some quiet time to contemplate their future? I don’t know?

“Overall, this is a power struggle between two worn-out camps with declining popular support. The former governing parties and Pashinian‘s government equally failed to deliver coherent strategies for developing the country. Pashinian and his team then marched into the 44-day Second Karabakh War against Azerbaijan (see EDM, November 25, 2020), pulling its military along to disaster. The Army had enjoyed hallowed status in Armenia under the previous regime (1998–2018), but little appears to remain of that status now.”
 Though there may be NO real desire for change within Armenia- There is plenty from outside of Armenia- The outside interests who have strong desire for change have been previously named. They are, again,as follows: The US. The EU. France, especially doing the bidding of another interested party- Israel. The PKK. Very influential in the EU and Israel (undoubtedly they have their lobbyists in the US) 

  A big question, perhaps someone who reads here can answer this. How integrated is the Armenian army with NATO?  Armenia has been looking towards NATO for some time now. How much progress had they made towards integration?  Check the news coverage over the past several years US Generals Visiting Armenia, US Military Instructors Training Armenian Recruits, Armenian Troops Participating in NATO Drills. US Praises US/Armenian Military Cooperation. Etc., Etc., It seems there has been a fair amount of intermingling between the US and Armenia. Over and extended period of time.


* Will Biden Save Pashinian?   Why Should We Assume Biden Wants Pashinian Saved? 

It looks to me as if the Biden administration wants him out!

 
Crucially:

Turkey’s preference is to promote peace, cooperation and economic integration in the South Caucasus. Hence the proposed establishment of a six-party mechanism.

Stability in the Caucasus, the Caspian and Central Asia would facilitate the transportation of energy and trade – which serve Turkey’s interests. The creation of a land corridor between Turkey and the Turkic republics via Nakhchivan, too, is good news for Ankara.

Peace between Azerbaijan and Armenia, normalization between Turkey and Armenia, and Armenia’s reintegration to address its economic problems are key to stability in the Caucasus.

The rise to power of coup plotters, who will launch a new war against Azerbaijan, or Armenia’s deterioration into a failed state due to Russian-American competition, would create many problems, including irregular migration.

Who would want/benefit from a failed state in Armenia?

It would seem that the coup attempt in Armenia will test the Biden administration’s commitment to containing Russia and defending democracies.

 The Biden adminstration wants to contain Russia, but, any claim of defending democracies should only be seen as a ruse. Right now I’m seeing the Biden administration preferring to push Pashinian out- in the guise of saving democracy.  A deadly game is afoot.

10 Dead With Vaccine in Canada- Adverse Reactions Continue Their Higher then Norm Pattern

 I've been tracking this for a bit now... Of course many of the figures are estimates and there is a lag in data. Estimated or actual. Or both.

Background: 

Covid-19 Vaccine Data 

Feb 19/21 (always a week behind) - 10 Dead with Vaccine

As of the report, dated February 12/21:  1, 221, 539 were administered

The latest report dated February 19/21:  1,402,139 doses were administered


So we are looking at the stats for an additional 180,600 mRNA gene therapies masquerading as vaccines
           
 From those additional 180,600 injections, 278 adverse events have occurred. 27 of them serious.
The serious still being, most often, anaphylaxis. The rate of anaphylaxis is exponentially higher then usual.



Usually one would expect 1 incident of anaphylaxis per million.  As you can read there have been 27 in less then 200,000.  We’d be looking at more then 135 incidents per million.

This week it’s reported there have been ten deaths:

A total of ten reports identified deaths that occurred after the administration of a vaccine. Following medical case review, it has been determined that seven of these deaths are not linked to a COVID-19 vaccine and the other three are still under investigation.

Last week there were eight reported. So we’ve got two additional deaths in one week. With three of them being under investigation- Those will be swept under the rug, that I’m sure of.
Still it is a given considering  the side effects of this vaccine, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea which would be extremely hard on the elderly and could lead quite quickly to their death. 

Which is death by vaccine, any way you want to look at it!

  • 278 - New adverse event following immunization reports since last update
  • 251 new non-serious and 27 new serious
  • 1,235 Total adverse event following immunization reports
  • (0.088% of all doses administered)
  • 1,068 Total adverse event following immunization reports were non-serious
  • (0.076% of all doses administered)
  • 167 Total adverse event following immunization reports were serious
  • (0.012% of all doses administered)
  • 1,402,139 Total doses administered

Israel ESTIMATES Ship Explosion in Gulf of Oman was Iranian Attack- False Flag/False Crisis

 Wow, that is some serious weasel wording. "Estimates" 

What does that word actually mean?

Estimate defined: estimate implies a judgment, considered or casual, that precedes or takes the place of actual measuring or counting or testing out.

We now know that a judgement has been made without any actual investigation- The disinfo potential is huge. 

Link


 

A ship owned by an Israeli firm, the MV HELIOS RAY, was (estimated)  hit by an explosion in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) and a maritime security firm said on Friday. The current assessment in Israel is that the explosion was a targeted attempt against an Israeli-owned ship by Iran.

However, the cause of the explosion remains unclear.

"Investigations are ongoing. Vessel and crew are safe," the UKMTO's advisory notice said, advising vessels in the area to exercise caution.

The incident occurred at 2040 GMT, it said, but gave no details about a possible cause.

Maritime security firm Dryad Global said the MV HELIOS RAY was a vehicle carrier owned by Helios Ray Ltd, an Israeli firm registered in the Isle of Man. The ship was en route to Singapore from Dammam in Saudi Arabia.

A spokesman for Israel's Transportation Ministry said it had no information about an Israeli vessel having been struck in the Gulf.

A company with the name Helios Ray Ltd is incorporated in the Isle of Man. The ship was managed by Stamco Ship Management, Refinitiv ship tracking data showed. Stamco Ship Management declined to comment when contacted by phone by Reuters.

"Whilst details regarding the incident remain unclear it remains a realistic possibility that the event was the result of asymmetric activity by Iranian military," Dryad said in a report on the incident.

Refinitiv data shows the ship has set Dubai as its current destination.

The U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said it was aware of the incident and monitoring the situation.

Dr Fausti Admits Vaccine Is A Failure For Transmission Reduction- Told Ya So!

 Hate to say you were all told this FACT, repeatedly. But you were.. This vaccine was never designed or proven to reduce transmission. Never. Ever. 

 Those media talking heads that have been pushing this, alt and msm, have been intentionally misleading or so inculcated with fear and disinfo that they took leave of the senses. Whichever? 

 This Meaghan McCain person (who ever she is) seems more bothered by the fact that Dr Fausti admitted to the failure of this vaccine. She seems bothered by his message more then the reality of the vaccine FAIL- Save for it being a mass experiment which is a win for the the pharmaceutical profiteers including, but certainly not limited, to Bill Gates.

Oh and she, Meaghan McCain, such a virtue signaling individual- can't trust that type!

Below the video I've relinked multiple previous reports that have discussed the failure to stop transmission issue with this so called vaccine. (mRNA therapy)  Long known. Check the dates on the posted information. Failure to stop transmission was known before the, ahem, vaccine was given EUA (emergency use authorization) and NOT approved.

 Link

It isn’t that Fausti is bad at his job. He's, in fact, been very good at misleading the herd.

He simply can’t keep on lying now that the vaccine is being rolled out- The Truth was inevitably going to bubble up to the surface. The vaccine doesn’t impede transmission. It never was demonstrated to do so.  There was NO SCIENCE, only spin, behind any claims of this vaccine doing much of anything beneficial. Unless one considers  causing harm and death by injection beneficial?  Those facts are being well obfuscated by the msm and some alt media darlings. Even that can only stand for so long, before it to will be bathed in the light.

Face it the masses have been played as fools. And they allowed themselves to be. By being lazy and not doing their own due diligence.

  1.  So you got the much ballyhooed Covid "vaccine"... And then you contracted Covid! Now What? 
  2.  Vaccinated Nurse Gets Covid "Positive Test Doesn't Necessarily Mean Nurse Has Contracted Illness" Oh, really?
  3. CovIdiocracy: False Hope, Hysteria Rules & More Vaccine Reactions and Deaths 
  4.  Covid Outbreak Hits Site of First in Canada Covid Vaccination Roll Out

In order for this experiment on humanity to be conducted the bar for this vaccine was set lower then usual. And the usual is quite low as it is. Including the EAU

  1. The FDA DID NOT "APPROVE" The Pfizer Vaccine, They AUTHORIZED it For Use. EUA = Emergency Use Authorization

In my opinion, based on all I've read and written this latest pandemic vaccine trope can only be seen as justification for  mass human experimentation. Without your informed consent! 

Don't Miss (much going on in this world)

High Fructose Sweetener is Toxic Swill, an alleged “Food Product” & Implicated in Sickness Fuel by the Covid Virus

Armenia & possible coup in the works? As the remake agenda progresses under the progressive Biden regime. 

From earlier today

High Fructose Sweetener- Disgusting and it's everywhere. It's been implicated time and time again with inflammation in our bodies. This inflammation causes diabetes. Cancer. And has been fueling the sickness induced by Covid. 


Revisit the PFYT report from December 2020:  Vitamin D and COVID 19: The Evidence for Prevention and Treatment of Coronavirus (SARS CoV 2)

We do not consume high fructose sweetener regularly. (Though it's hard to avoid and is include in many more products then it should be- so watch out for it)  This product is toxic beyond belief. And inflammatory. 

Link
HFCS and sugar have been shown to drive inflammation, which is associated with an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. In addition to inflammation, excess fructose may increase harmful substances called advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which may harm your cells ( 21 , 22 , 23 ).Sep 27, 2019
Study after study are taking their place in a growing lineup of scientific research demonstrating that consuming high-fructose corn syrup is the fastest way to trash your health.

 Fructose reprogrammes glutamine-dependent oxidative metabolism to support LPS-induced inflammation

 Abstract

Fructose intake has increased substantially throughout the developed world and is associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Currently, our understanding of the metabolic and mechanistic implications for immune cells, such as monocytes and macrophages, exposed to elevated levels of dietary fructose is limited.

See previous post. Entirely

Here, we show that fructose reprograms cellular metabolic pathways to favour glutaminolysis and oxidative metabolism, which are required to support increased inflammatory cytokine production in both LPS-treated human monocytes and mouse macrophages. A fructose-dependent increase in mTORC1 activity drives translation of pro-inflammatory cytokines in response to LPS. LPS-stimulated monocytes treated with fructose rely heavily on oxidative metabolism and have reduced flexibility in response to both glycolytic and mitochondrial inhibition, suggesting glycolysis and oxidative metabolism are inextricably coupled in these cells. The physiological implications of fructose exposure are demonstrated in a model of LPS-induced systemic inflammation, with mice exposed to fructose having increased levels of circulating IL-1β after LPS challenge. Taken together, our work underpins a pro-inflammatory role for dietary fructose in LPS-stimulated mononuclear phagocytes which occurs at the expense of metabolic flexibility.

Introduction

Typically, activation of the human innate immune system requires the rewiring of cellular metabolic pathways largely to favour glucose metabolism1,2,3,4,5. However, in the various nutrient environments they inhabit, monocytes will be exposed to a range of different carbon sources, the availability of which will likely dictate their metabolism and phenotype. One such carbon source is fructose, the second most abundant dietary sugar found in humans. Fructose is metabolised by glycolysis either by ketohexokinase producing fructose-1-phosphate, a substrate for aldolase B6 (in the liver, kidneys and intestines for example) or converted to the glycolytic intermediate fructose-6-phosphate by hexokinase (HK), albeit at a lower rate than glucose7,8.

 Fructose intake has increased substantially throughout the Western world, largely attributed to elevated sucrose and high fructose corn syrup consumption9 and is thought to exacerbate various non-communicable conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease9. Chronic fructose consumption in these conditions has recently been shown to drive hepatic fructolysis, where the expression of lipogenic genes is enhanced10,11,12.

Typically, physiological levels of fructose in the circulation range from 0.04 to 0.2 mM13; however, there are several pathophysiological scenarios in which levels of fructose are elevated. For example, peripheral blood levels can exceed 1 mM in patients with haematological malignancies such as acute myeloid leukaemia and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia14. In addition, fructose concentrations in the bone marrow microenvironment of haematological cancer patients can reach up to 5 mM14. Alterations in the glucose to fructose ratio, particularly when glucose is scarce, enables acute myeloid leukaemia blasts to significantly enhance fructose uptake14. Localised mouse tissue microenvironments, such as the liver, kidneys and jejunum, also have elevated levels of fructose metabolism15. Therefore, there are various pathophysiological scenarios and tissue microenvironments where monocytes will be exposed to either equimolar concentrations of fructose and glucose or concentrations of fructose exceeding that of glucose
The impact of elevated fructose exposure on the immune system has not been investigated extensively. Chronic fructose exposure in rats results in a more inflammatory phenotype of bone marrow mononuclear cells16. While there is some evidence that lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human dendritic cells are able to produce enhanced levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines when cultured in fructose as opposed to glucose, the underlying metabolic rewiring that enables this pro-inflammatory phenotype has not been investigated17.

Here we characterise how human monocytes and mouse macrophages respond metabolically and functionally to fructose exposure. We show that activated mononuclear phagocytes demonstrate plasticity in engaging metabolism of this alternative carbon source, yet it leaves the cells metabolically inflexible and vulnerable to further metabolic challenge. Fructose exposure reprogrammes cellular pathways to favour glutaminolysis and oxidative metabolism, which support an inflammatory phenotype in both human and mouse mononuclear phagocytes. Finally, we demonstrate that a short-term high fructose diet promotes inflammation in vivo, suggesting that our findings have pathophysiological significance.
Results
Fructose exposure promotes an oxidative phenotype

We sought to investigate the metabolic response to fructose exposure in activated human monocytes in comparison to other monosaccharides (glucose and galactose) or complete sugar withdrawal. Galactose has been used previously to promote oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in T cells by reducing glycolysis18. Using the Seahorse Bioanalyzer, we initially injected the monosaccharide (glucose, fructose or galactose) or media control containing no sugar. After 1 h, monocytes were stimulated with LPS and the corresponding extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) and oxygen consumption rate (OCR) were used to measure glycolysis and OXPHOS, respectively, for the duration.

Monocytes incubated with glucose demonstrated a robust increase in basal and LPS-induced ECAR (Fig. 1A). By contrast, monocytes treated with fructose or galactose had low baseline levels of glycolysis, only slightly greater than no sugar controls (Fig. 1A). In addition, monocytes treated with fructose, galactose or no sugar had only a modest increase in ECAR post-LPS exposure (Fig. 1A). Upon activation, glucose-treated cells reduced their OCR, consistent with the reported metabolic switch from OXPHOS to glycolysis upon activation3. Monocytes treated with fructose, galactose or no sugar had an initial burst of increased oxygen consumption and maintained higher OCR for the duration of the assay (Fig. 1B). This demonstrates metabolic flexibility of human monocytes, in this case towards OXPHOS when the cells are unable to engage in glycolysis.
I'll have more information on the affects of  the toxic swill Fructose Sweetener on your immune system at a later date.

Armenia: Coup In The Works? Whose Coup? War Maker Biden. NED 404 & Cached Finds..

Pashinyan is in trouble. Clearly. And he has been since the settling of the Nagorno Karabakh fighting.  But, who are the players behind this trouble?

  • 1- The people? To some degree, yes.
  • 2- Russia? They've got their friendlies in place. But, I'm not convinced of their involvement  to overthrow- Why bother? Really?
  • 3- The US and friends? I'm certain that, yes, the US and their friends, particularly in the EU maybe pulling strings behind the scene.

Let's recall 3 recent reports:

Updated 4:18 pm EST:

First up : November 19/20  Turkey and Russia Transforming Relations? Biden's "ancien regime" Will Be A War Maker, Both Foreign and Domestic

  Biden will appease the self identified left and their idea of social justice by waging war on new people in new places, for all the “right” reasons...

All the memes that appeal to the ‘do righters’ who believe themselves to be bringers of global justice when all these goals serve only to advance the multinational corporate ability to extort massively from the people at enormous expense, on many levels, to humanity. 
Do righters = Social Justice warriors = "woke"

Secondly - January 19, 2021- The Future of Armenia: Three Options For More EU Meddling

As was stated then by yours truly..

The Future of Armenia- is not for Armenia to decide

Have no fear the EU is going to keep it’s foot in the door and continue to force Armenian’s to bend to the will of the globalist capitalist western 5 + 1 eyes agenda. Remember that France’s Macron simply  couldn’t keep his mouth shut as Russia negotiated a settlement in this locale.? France and the US were extremely displeased with the agreement made between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.   

No one could have thought the settlement, which had the support of Iran and Turkey as well was, going to be allowed to stand without being challenged?

Thirdly: November 29/20   France's Whining Over The Nagarno Karabakh Agreement (Russia, Armenia & Azerbaijan) Continues On. 

 Yah, France. The leadership of that nation has no desire for peace in NK.  None. Nadda, Zéro  Zéro . Still awaiting the answer to the question - Why has France been getting a free pass in the media, alt and msm, for it's heavy handed and obvious involvement in Nagarno Karabakh?

By the way, no one ever stepped forward to explain why it was France was getting a free pass. Alt media? Anti imperial media? Oh, the silence was deafening.

Onto the latest!

PanARMENIAN.Net - The General Staff of the Armenian Army issued a fresh statement on Thursday, Febriary 25, maintaining that their previous statement demanding Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's resignation was not pressured by any person or power.

The statement "is the clear conviction and position of the generals and officers, with a single goal of serving the salvation of the Homeland at this crucial moment. We confirm our position once again," the General Staff said.

The country is facing a serious political crisis after the top military brass demanded Pashinyan's resignation. The PM, however, claims he had already dismissed the chief of the Army General Staff. The parliamentary opposition has already weighed in on the matter, urging against bloodshed and calling for a peaceful transition of power.   
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 25, ARMENPRESS. The opposition Homeland Salvation Movement demanding the resignation of PM Nikol Pashinyan is rallying in the Freedom Square in downtown Yerevan.

The ARF member Gegham Manukyan, one of the coordinators of the movement, said they will not give in to provocations and urged law enforcement agencies to thwart any such attempts.

Manukyan said the law enforcement agencies ought to join the military’s calls for Pashinyan’s resignation.

The ARF member Artsvik Minasyan added that they support the Armenian military.

Meanwhile, PM Nikol Pashinyan has called on his supporters to rally in the Republic Square after the Armed Forces General Staff issued a statement calling for his resignation. Pashinyan said this statement amounts to an attempted coup.


Homeland Salvation Movement... Sounds like a pro west/ pro NATO party. If you think about it this is a party that represents more war. "Homeland Salvation" And war doesn't benefit the Armenian people.

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu     

Turkey on Thursday “strongly condemned” what it described as an attempted coup in neighboring Armenia, where Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was facing calls by the military’s top brass to resign. 
“We strongly condemn the attempted coup in Armenia,” Turkish Foreign Minister
Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told a news conference in Budapest. “We are absolutely against coups and coup attempts anywhere in the world.

 General condemnation? Better to dance with the devil you know? Or a clue as to who is fomenting the coup. (The US/EU/Israel/PKK alliance) Turkey has everything to lose if the aforementioned alliance tosses Pashinyan. Pashinyan has been a tool and a fool, but, he's been subdued quite a bit. Weakened, one would easily say.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a decree today to create a working group tasked with reforming the military and to deepen security ties with Russia.

“We intend to establish even closer cooperation with our number one security partner, Russia. We are confident that as a result of this process, this cooperation will become more effective in the fields of security, military and military-technical cooperation," Pashinyan said at today’s government cabinet session.

Is this move by Pashinyan yet another suggestion to us, a clue, of who is fomenting the coup?
