The death of Mikhail Gorbachev this week marks the end of an era that began with “Evil Empire,” morphed into Perestroika, Glasnost and eventually the fall of the Soviet Union and the mess it made. Part of that mess is modern Ukraine, turned into a fiasco overnight. R.I.P.

The Show has been closely following the miscellaneous well-conditioned athletes who are dropping dead for no good reason, often on the field of play. Now one too many doctors are dying like this in Toronto and Alberta, Canada has seen an uptick in unexplained deaths of people in their prime.
There is an implication that these people were likely (especially in Canada where it was mandated) vaccinated and the vaccine has shown to be dangerous, thus it is killing people. This is not a line of thinking the show enjoys promoting since a good portion of the audience got vaccinated and maybe boosted. Thus, this discussion is disturbing and unwelcome to some. It just happens to be in the news to excess and the idea here is to get to the bottom of these deaths and the statistical anomalies, not to frighten anyone. The storyline should level off pretty soon.

Unlike other news analysis shows No Agenda concludes that world events are more important that the US Mainstream media lets on. But that does not mean ignoring Joe Biden speeches which can be phenomenal. Get ready for some whopper clips. Great show tomorrow. Continue to support No Agenda, your objective news analysis show.
The Show is healthier with sustaining donations known as subscriptions. Here are a few to choose from.
The favorite is the lucky $33.33 a month. Click here for that.
It has superseded the once popular $11.11 month. More lucky numbers click here.
Most recently the show offered the $4 a week or 75-cents an hour subscription which has become very popular. Click here for that.
There is also the $50 a month Knighthood layaway for 20 months. Click here for that.
And, of course, there is the do-it yourself open donation which is always welcome.
