(Natural News) In an incident that adds more fuel to reports that Ukraine is not the “victim” the U.S.-led West wants us all to believe, an article published earlier this week made a startling claim about a one-time NATO general.
According to the Exposé News, “disgraced” Canadian Gen. Trevor Cadieu was recently captured by Russian forces in the besieged port city of Mariupol, which has essentially been reduced to nothing but rubble and bombed-out buildings thanks to relentless indiscriminate targeting by missiles and artillery.
“Russian sources often refer to Trevor Cadieu as Trevor Kadier or Trevor Cadier. At the beginning of this month, Russians said they captured Cadieu at the Azovstal iron and steel factory during the Siege of Mariupol. He is currently in Moscow awaiting trial,” the report noted.
It added: “Cadieu was apparently not on a mission for his government but was in charge of a bio laboratory, Biolab No.1, with 18 staff working under his command. Biolab No.1 is reportedly managed by US company Metabiota. The company Hunter Biden, son of U.S. President Joe Biden, and Christopher Heinz, John Kerry’s son-in-law, had organized subcontracting arrangements for Ukrainian research laboratories through their firm Rosemont Capital, on behalf of the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).”
Cadieu was a career Canadian army officer who attained the rank of lieutenant general. He retired only recently amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Shortly thereafter, he traveled to Ukraine to allegedly join in the fight after Russia invaded in late February.
He was released from the Canadian military on April 5 and intended to join other foreign fighters offering their services on behalf of Kyiv, several sources confirmed to Global News.
The Canadian Department of National Defense confirmed on April 21 that Cadieu had retired earlier in the month after serving for more than 30 years, even as military authorities continued to investigate the claims regarding his alleged conduct.
In a statement to CBC, Cadieu said: “I have opted to release [from the Canadian military] and am exploring other opportunities to contribute to the greater good.”
In addition, the Exposé News reported that senior Canadian military leaders were briefed about their former colleague’s decision to go to Ukraine.
Canadian defense spokesman Dan Le Bouthillier said the former lieutenant general’s release from the military followed proper procedures, “as he is now a private citizen, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further on his personal plans.”
“There has been no CAF [Canadian Armed Forces] support, material or otherwise, given to Cadieu since his departure as it pertains to his personal endeavors,” Le Bouthillier added.
Meanwhile, Russian blogger Svetlana Nikolaevna noted (according to a translation) that “[Cadieu] was the head of 18 laboratories working on deadly viruses such as Ebola or Nipah. He was taken to Lefortovo (the investigative department of the FSB of the Russian Federation) in Moscow for trial by a military tribunal.”
“The ‘former’ commander of the army, Lieutenant General Trevor Cadier, was in Ukraine, and he has been absent since February. He was surrounded in Mariupol at the Azovstal plant. It was behind Trevor Cadier that the Armed Forces of Ukraine sent four helicopters and two boats that destroyed the Russian Armed Forces,” her report continued.
“It was for his sake that Ukrainian troops several times tried unsuccessfully to break through the front line and reach Mariupol. It was for his sake that Macron and Scholz tried to negotiate with Putin, but did not bargain anything. It is for the sake of a NATO general that Zelensky begs to organize a humanitarian Ukrainian corridor in Mariupol.
“Trevor Cadier did not have the will and courage to sit in the cellars of the Azovstal plant. While trying to escape from the Azovstal plant, he was arrested and taken to Lefortovo (Investigative Committee of the FSB of the Russian Federation), Moscow.”
It’s obvious the West and NATO were hiding several banned programs in Ukraine.
Former Goldman CEO Warns of Potential Recession: ‘Very, Very High Risk Factor’
Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation, former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein warned the United States could plunge into a recession.
“Do you think we’re headed towards recession?” @margbrennan asks Goldman Sachs Senior Chairman Lloyd Blankfein amid U.S. inflation.
“It’s definitely a risk…If I were a consumer, I’d be prepared for it, but it’s not baked in the cake.” pic.twitter.com/IehxU4wSo6

A transcript is as follows:
MARGARET BRENNAN: Do you think we’re headed towards recession?
LLOYD BLANKFEIN: We’re certainly heading — it’s a very, very high risk factor. There’s a path, a narrow path, but I think the Fed has very powerful tools. It’s hard to finely tune them and hard to see the effects of them quickly enough to alter it. But I think they are responding well. It’s definitely a risk. If I was running a big company I would be very prepared for it. If I was a consumer, I would prepared for it. But it’s not baked in the cake.
White House Claims Baby Formula Shortage a Top Priority Since February After Joe Biden Claimed Ignorance of Problem
The White House claimed President Joe Biden’s administration made the baby formula shortage crisis a top priority as early as February, even though the president claimed ignorance of the problem on Thursday.
“This is something he is focusing on very acutely and again I said 24/7 we’ve been working on this since we have learned about this back in February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during the daily briefing about Biden, calling the issue “one of the presidents top priorities.”
Biden bristled when asked by reporters on Friday if he could have acted sooner to fix the crisis.
“If we had been better mind readers, I guess we could’ve, but we moved as the problem became apparent to us,” Biden said.
The president did not even personally mention the crisis until Friday, despite weeks of reports highlighting the problem.
“I’ll answer the baby formula question because, all of a sudden, it’s on the front page of every newspaper,” Biden grumbled on Friday.
He announced the launch of a new government website to help parents locate baby formula in stores, but it was beset by extremely long hold times and unhelpful information.
Jean-Pierre alluded to a comment from Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Bacerra claiming the Biden administration had been working on the issue since February and even as early as last year in 2021.
CNN: “You are satisfied with the government’s response throughout [the baby formula shortage]?”

“You’ve heard us talk about this, you’ve heard colleagues talking about what we have done since February,” Jean-Pierre said. “We’ve been working on this 24/7.”
Jean-Pierre refused to offer a timeline for when supplies of baby formula would return to normal.
“What I can say is there are a lot of dates floating around out there,” she said.
Joe Biden Botches Name of Hero Killed in Buffalo Shooting Aaron Salter Jr.
President Joe Biden struggled Monday with the correct pronunciation of the name of Aaron Salter Jr., a heroic ex-cop and security guard who died Saturday confronting the Buffalo mass shooting suspect.
“We pay tribute to all law enforcement officers and their families who understand what it takes, what’s at risk, to save and protect all of us,” Biden said. “That includes paying tribute to the Buffalo police officer Aaron Salder — Slater, excuse me — who gave his life trying to save others.”
Biden spoke about Salter during a Public Safety Officer Medals of Valor ceremony at the White House for law enforcement and public safety officials.
Salter was a Buffalo police officer for 30 years before retiring in 2022 and taking a security job at the Tops Friendly Market where the shooting took place.
Salter hit the alleged shooter with at least one round from his pistol, but it was blocked by the alleged shooter’s bulletproof armor. Salter was later shot and killed during the attack.
“You’re the heart and soul and very spine of this country and communities,” Biden continued, praising the public safety officials in the room.
During the ceremony, Biden also botched the name of Rep. Adriano Espaillat, a Democrat congressman from New York.
“Excuse me. You can call me ‘Bidden,’” Biden joked, mispronouncing his own name. “We’ve known each other so long and I still stumbled. I apologize.”
