“Talking about American politics without mentioning the Jews is a little like talking about the NBA without mentioning the Chicago Bulls. Not that the Jews are all-powerful enough; and their power is unique in being off-limits to normal criticism even when it’s highly visible. They themselves behave as if their success were a guilty secret, and they panic, and resort to accusations, as soon as the subject is raised. Jewish control of the major media in the media age makes the enforced silence both paradoxical and paralyzing. Survival in public life requires that you know all about it, but never refer to it. A hypocritical etiquette forces us to pretend that the Jews are powerless victims; and if you don’t respect their victimhood, they’ll destroy you.”

Donald Trump Has Been Indicted
“Felony charges” still under still seal
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Donald J. Trump on Thursday for his role in paying hush money to a porn star, according to four people with knowledge of the matter, a historic development that will shake up the 2024 presidential race and forever mark him as the nation’s first former president to face criminal charges. The felony indictment, filed under seal by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, will likely be announced in the coming days. By then, prosecutors working for the district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, will have asked Mr. Trump to surrender and to face arraignment on charges that remain unknown for now. A felony indictment. We’ll have more information and more analysis after the indictment is unsealed. But as we stated yesterday regarding the reported “delays” and the potential charges: “In New York, the falsification of business records is a misdemeanor that is subject to a two-year statute of limitations. Bragg, however, is supposedly pursuing felony charges against Trump for falsifying business records to conceal federal campaign finance violations. The felony has a five-year statute of limitations, one which Bragg can manipulate to perhaps apply to Trump.” The indictment is an absolute scandal, the banana republic on parade, the prosecutor using the weapons of his office to attack his political opponent.

Florida Will Not Extradite Trump – Governor
Ron DeSantis has slammed the “Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda”
Donald Trump’s potential top rival for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has ripped the New York City prosecutor behind the criminal indictment of the former president. “Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” DeSantis said in a tweet on Thursday.So far there has been no reports of any potential extradition requests, as a spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office told AP that prosecutors had reached out to Trump’s legal team to “arrange a surrender” and a court appearance, expected sometime next week. DeSantis previously said he wouldn’t get involved in the case “in any way,” indicating that he wouldn’t try to help block the Florida resident’s extradition to New York, but has now echoed Trump’s belief that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “is stretching the law to target a political opponent.” “The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American,” DeSantis added.

Saudi Arabia’s Biggest Oil Producer Will Build $10 Billion Petrochemical Complex In China – Are The Days Of Ishmael Upon Us?
There are very few people in the western media, both corporate and alternative, who seem to fully understand the significance of the announcement this week that Saudi Arabia’s largest oil company, Aramco, is investing $BILLIONS in China’s growing petrochemical industry. Aramco was originally the name for the “Arabian American Oil Company,” founded by the Standard Oil Co. of California (Chevron) in 1933, when the government of Saudi Arabia granted it a concession. Other U.S. companies joined after oil was found near Dhahran in 1938. In 1973, the Saudi government bought a 25% interest in Aramco, increasing that interest to 60% the following year. In 1980, the Saudi government increased its interest in Aramco to 100%. Eight years later, the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (now renamed Saudi Aramco) was officially established. I worked in Dhahran in the early to mid 1990s, teaching English at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals.

Central Banks Must Now Hyperinflate As Minsky Moment In “Ponzi Finance” Looms
People need to get prepared because central banks must now hyperinflation as Minsky moment in “Ponzi finance” looms.
Egon von Greyerz: Whether the US dollar rises or falls, the end result is as inevitable as Napoleon’s Waterloo: Disaster. Once stock and bond bubbles reach their tipping points, the last bubble to die is the currency. Minsky Moment In “Ponzi Finance” Bill Gross: Lower treasury yields ahead!! The U.S. is not yet experiencing a Minsky moment but certainly our economy is characterized by Minsky’s “Ponzi finance” where existing debt requires more credit just to pay for interest on that debt. To be specific total credit — now approaching 85 trillion — requires credit growth of perhaps 4 trillion annually just to steady GDP at the current 26 trillion. That’s possible but it requires lower interest rates not higher…

Maternal Mortality Rate In U.S. Increased 40 Percent During Pandemic
The United States has again secured its spot as “the most dangerous place” among high income countries to give birth, with the maternal mortality rate seeing a 40 percent increase from 2020-2021. These are the highest numbers since 1965. The U.S. has long ranked as the country with the highest mortality rates “by a significant margin” in the developed world, making this increase even more alarming. Over the past 20 years, most other developed countries saw a decline in maternal mortality rates, but the U.S. saw a 78 percent rise over the two-decade span, according to the WHO. With no clear cut reason for the dramatic rise in maternal mortality in the U.S., public health researchers are pointing the finger at the high number of uninsured people in the U.S.

Meanwhile, The Petrodollar Just Got Smaller Today As The First LNG Shipment Between UAE And France Is Traded in Yuan
Two major energy trade developments today highlight how the Western Alliance is quickly losing a grip on the world energy market, as an alliance between China, Russia, Iran and the Middle East Gulf Cooperation Council starts to take shape with actual trade exchanges that are not in dollars. Last year, in response to big panda’s own interest and seeking to exploit two western alliance self-created weaknesses; (1) sanctions against Russia and (2) weakened investment in LNG production; China spearheaded the Shanghai Petroleum and Natural Gas Exchange. The exchange was aimed at group purchasing services for liquefied natural gas (LNG) though the use of the yuan to replace the dollar. Essentially, team Gray operating without the global trading system of team Yellow (map). The Shanghai exchange allows purchases of LNG portions by small and medium-sized buyers in yuan.
US Congress Reveals Where Ukraine Money Ends Up
Direct aid to Kiev amounted to only 20% of over $100 billion appropriated so far
Most of the money the US Congress has designated for aiding the government in Kiev has actually gone to the military-industrial complex, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee admitted during an oversight hearing on Wednesday. “Of the $113 billion appropriated, across four supplementals, approximately 60% is going to American troops, American workers, and on modernizing American stockpiles,” said Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican. “In fact, only 20% of the funding is going directly to the Ukrainian government, in the form of direct budgetary assistance.” McCaul is a staunch supporter of arming Ukraine, and insisted that his oversight of the aid is not intended “to undermine or question the importance of support” for Kiev, but to let American taxpayers know how their money was being spent. The witnesses at Wednesday’s hearing on “oversight, transparency, and accountability of Ukraine assistance” included the acting or permanent inspectors-general at the Pentagon, the State Department and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
Technology And A Tyranny Worse Than Prison
For 19 years, private companies practicing an unprecedented economic logic that I call surveillance capitalism have hijacked the Internet and its digital technologies. Invented at Google in 2000, this new economics covertly claims private human experience as free raw material for translation into behavioural data. Some data are used to improve services, but the rest are turned into computational products that predict your behaviour. These predictions are traded in a new futures market, where surveillance capitalists sell certainty to businesses determined to know what we will do next.

Wolf Cries T-Shirt
A government that is determined to keep its people from knowing the truth, censors free speech and spreads false narratives has lost all credibility and respect. It cannot be believed or trusted anymore. Like the boy who cried wolf too many times; when the wolf does arrive, the people are not prepared and at its mercy.

ACH (2104) Mike Walsh – Selective Censorship (Audio 56:19)
In today’s show originally broadcast on March 28, 2023, Andy is joined by Mike Walsh for a show entitled, “Selective Censorship.”
We discussed: when private companies are allowed to discriminate against people and when they are not; how the Race Relations Act was not brought in to protect minorities, but instead to protect government policy; Mike’s experiences during over 50 years of activism; how social media has effectively hijacked the dissident mindset; why we do not sanction any criminal acts; some examples of dissident activity Mike was made aware of during his political life; and many other topics.

Chips Under Your Skin
The conspirators and globalists have been planning their attack on our freedom and humanity for a long time. Please read the following paragraphs. They are taken from my book Living in a Fascist Country which was published in 2006. These paragraphs refer to the proposed introduction of ID cards – proposed, of course, by Tony Bliar’s Government. ‘And here’s another thought that should make you go cold inside. The proponents of ID cards are already suggesting that we have identity chips implanted under our skin. We can get more information on an embedded chip than can be put on a tattoo.’ Would you be happy for the Government to tattoo you with a number? What about a chip?

Video: Leftist Professor Suspended After Calling For MURDER Of Conservative Speakers
“I think it is far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down.”
A professor at Wayne State University has been suspended pending a review after a Facebook post suggesting that instead of censoring conservative speakers on campus, they should be murdered. Reason reports that an English professor posting under the name of Steven Shaviro wrote about freedom of speech on college and University campuses, “I think it is far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down.” In the post, the professor also wrote “The exemplary historical figure in this regard is Sholem Schwarzbard, who assassinated the anti-Semitic butcher Symon Petliura, rather than trying to shout him down. Remember that Schwarzbard was acquitted by a jury, which found his action justified.” After the post was reported to the college, the police were notified, and the professor was placed on leave.

Doctors Report Startling Rise In Testicular Injuries Among Woman Athletes
NEW YORK, NY — A new study indicates a disturbing trend as testicular injuries in women’s sports are increasing at an astounding rate. Researchers are baffled as these statistics have skyrocketed from literally zero reported testicular injuries among female athletes just a few years ago. “This new wave of testicular injuries to female athletes has really come out of nowhere,” said Dr. Ryan Kitchen of Boston College’s Institute of Sports Medicine. “Years ago, there were absolutely no reported testicular injuries that occurred during women’s sporting events. If only we could determine what led to this sudden rise. Such a puzzle!”

Why Israelis Are Revolting Against Netanyahu And What It Really Means
Israel’s political and economic system has come to a standstill as a result of mass demonstrations, that have captured the attention of international media. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis, including members of Israel’s political and security establishment, took to the streets of Tel Aviv, whilst demonstrators stormed police barricades outside their Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu’s, home in occupied Jerusalem.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has managed to survive a vote of no-confidence, fire his sitting defense minister, Yoav Gallant, and stir chaos between the Israeli far-right and the rest of its (largely right-wing) population on the streets. Weeks ago, Israel’s President, Isaac Herzog, had warned that Israel could be on its way to civil war. All of this is due to Israeli PM Netanyahu’s proposed judicial reforms, which would essentially strip away judicial oversight of government legislative power.

Swedes Expected To Become Minority In Their Own Country’s Two Largest Cities
In Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city, citizens with an immigrant background are already in the majority, while the corresponding figure nationwide has exceeded a third. The share of the populace with an immigrant background in Sweden continues to rise, recently surpassing a third of the total population of over 10 million. According to the recent figures from Statistics Sweden (SCB), at the start of the year, 34.62% of Sweden’s residents had a foreign background going at least one generation back. With the current trends in place, this category will soon become a majority in all of the Nordic nation’s three largest cities. In Sweden’s third-largest municipality, Malmo, which has long been touted as the Scandinavian country’s most multicultural city, boasting diasporas from dozens of countries across the globe, residents there with a foreign background are already in the majority. On December 31, 2022, their numbers surpassed 57.5%. In Gothenburg and Stockholm, the corresponding figures at the turn of the year was nearly 48% and 45.4%, respectively. In some age brackets, foreign-background residents already are a majority. For instance, wholly 65% of Gothenburg residents aged 5 to 9 have an immigrant background.

The digital artifices keep churning out “more efficient” and “more productive” utilities. Their missionaries claim none of them are a threat to humans in one breath while acknowledging in the next breath that AI text bots will displace millions of human jobs within the next few years. The big machine stealing the limelight is ChatGPT, OpenAI’s text and propaganda curator purchased by Microsoft. Having dabbled with ChatGPT for a few weeks it’s become clear, and not at all unexpected, that this machine will only regurgitate the official and approved narratives that it has been programmed to churn. Outside of incontrovertible hard facts, the system collapses under the robotic rhetoric of establishment pols in the District of Corruption.

Excess Deaths, Vaccine Deaths And IgG4-Induced Suppression Of The Immune System
An update on recent studies
After following the usual pattern of dropping after winter, excess deaths in England and Wales have started to rise again. In England there have again been almost 1,000 excess deaths this week, which is 9.5% higher than average. In Wales excess deaths this week were 12.6% above average. This is clearly unusual and something that isn’t being sufficiently investigated. One possible reason for excess deaths still being so high is IgG4 antibodies, as discussed before. A new pre-print published yesterday took another look at IgG4 antibodies induced by mRNA vaccines and generating immune tolerance to the SARS-CoV-2 spike by suppressing the immune system. The article says that recent research has raised concerns that mRNA vaccines could induce immune tolerance, which, added to that caused by the virus itself, could complicate the clinical course of a COVID-19 infection. Recent investigations have also found high IgG4 levels after two or more mRNA injections.

Paris Protest Turns Violent (Text and Videos)
Black-clad demonstrators hurled rocks at police, who responded by baton-charging the crowds
A pension reform protest in Paris degenerated into violence on Tuesday, as groups of masked rioters clashed with heavily-armored riot police. Authorities say nearly 100,000 people marched in the French capital, as public anger over the government’s pension reform plan refuses to subside. The march started out peacefully, but as the crowd neared its destination of Place de la Nation in the east of the city center, activists dressed in black set fire to a storefront, prompting police to charge the crowd with batons drawn. Demonstrators were clubbed back and water cannons brought out to disperse stragglers. Video footage showed ranks of officers raining down blows upon the frontmost rows of demonstrators, some of whom responded by throwing rocks and other projectiles.
60+ Best Vegetables, Herbs, And Fruits That Grow In Shade
Just because you don’t get a lot of light in your garden doesn’t mean you can’t grow good food. But what CAN you grow in areas that might only have 4 hours of sun each day? Here are my top picks for the best vegetables that grow in shade, perennial and annual herbs that thrive in low-light gardens, and the most reliable edible plants that don’t need a full 8 hours of sun to produce a decent harvest.
In a perfect world, we’d all have flat, wide open, south-facing gardens that get 10 to 12 hours of sun a day, and there would be no fences, tree canopies, or two-story homes to block that glorious light. But let’s face it, most people have neighbors next to them, or the mature trees they usually love in summer become a curse as the shadows creep more and more over their garden beds each year. I’ve dealt with my fair share of challenges over the years, and have found that with good planning and proper expectations, you can make a low-light garden be as productive as a full-sun garden.

They’re Just Getting Started…Transgender Militants Call For Widespread Violence Against Christians
Transgenders and their supporters have long called for the mass murder of Christians.
Hyper-violent transgender militants say they’re just getting started after a targeted attack on a Nashville Christian school by a woman claiming to be a man who took the lives of three young children and three of their teachers before the trans mass shooter was eliminated by the police. The mass shooting in Nashville was far from the one-off act of violence that pro-trans pundits and politicians are telling the American People that it was, and is in fact just the latest mass shooting to be carried out by a murderer claiming to be transgender. In the case of the Nashville attack, Christian children were deliberately targeted for slaughter as they attended school, something that those in the radically left-wing LGBT movement have been threatening for quite some time.

IRS Makes Visit To Matt Taibbi Home On Day Of His Congressional Testimony
If there is one additional person that I would be certain is under full spectrum surveillance, it’s dissident comrade Matt Taibbi. With the background of Twitter and the DHS national security interests still part of the social media construct, you can be sure all elements of the administrative state have a focus on his internal search requests. One of the reasons why I give Matt Taibbi a lot of credit, is because I am well aware how the shadow dwellers, what DC would call ‘stakeholders’, are watching him; yet he persists on his reviews and investigations. Secondly, given his general Michael Hastings aligned disposition, Taibbi would be the first person to dismiss his own risk status. Something akin to, ‘nah, they wouldn’t‘, but oh yes, they would. On the day that Taibbi was giving testimony to the House committee reviewing the ‘Weaponization of Federal Government’, an IRS agent just happened to coincidentally visit his home. Committee Chairman Jim Jordan now wants to know if the two coincidences are connected.
Newly Released Autism Prevalence Estimates Show That The Iatrogenocide Is Expanding
The mainstream narrative lies in ruins and the CDC response is a case study in total depravity
I. Introduction: The new autism numbers came out last Thursday. We all knew that they would be bad because nearly every prevalence report for the last 20 years has shown increasing rates. We also knew that once again the CDC and mainstream media would try to spin increasing prevalence as “good news” in the Orwellian way that they do. Let’s walk through the two reports and then have a brief conversation about what we do about this.

Japanese Environment Economist Says Alps-Treated Fukushima Radioactive Wastewater Still Contains Radionuclides, Urging Tokyo To Stop Dumping Plan
While stressing that the so-called treated water from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant still contains radionuclides that are not able to be removed, a renowned Japanese environment economist said in an exclusive interview with the Global Times recently that we must persistently demand that the Japanese government and the Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) stop dumping the nuclear-contaminated wastewater into the ocean. Kenichi Oshima, professor at Ryukoku University, told the Global Times that the Japanese government and TEPCO should not release the nuclear-contaminated wastewater.

A New Integrated Solar Battery Based On Carbon Nitride Photoanodes
In recent years, researchers have been trying to create increasingly efficient solar technologies and more sustainable battery designs. Among emerging sustainable energy solutions are solar batteries, systems that can store the energy collected by solar cells or photovoltaic (PV) systems. A research group at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, supervised by Prof. Bettina Lotsch, recently introduced a sustainable integrated solar battery design based on materials that abundant on Earth. Their design, presented in a paper published in Energy & Environmental Science, is based on a bi-functional carbon nitride (K-PHI) photoanode that can both absorb light and store electric charge.

Human Rights Watch Deliberately Only Scratched The Surface In Exploring Ukraine’s Use Of Banned ‘Petal’ Mines (Text and Video)
This is what I’ve been reporting since late July when Ukraine fired rockets containing petal mines (300+/rocket) all over Donetsk & other cities: they’re often impossible to see, even if you’ve been warned of their presence. Since Ukraine dropped thousands of mines on the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in July, 104 people have fallen victim to the internationally-banned PFM-1 ‘petal’ (otherwise known as ‘butterfly’) devices. Nine of them are children. Of which three died. Among the most recent civilians to be injured, on March 19, were two 60-year-old men. On February 26, a woman in her sixties was wounded in her neighborhood. On February 14, a teenager stepped on a petal mine near a school. These are just a few documented examples from recent weeks.

It’s Immoral To Serve In An Immoral Military: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Deciding to enter the military is only morally justifiable if your country’s military is used in a moral and just way. There’s a weird, power-serving taboo against saying this which is born of the idea that it’s more important to protect the feelings of “our troops” than to discourage people from enlisting in the most murderous war machine on earth, but it’s true. This doesn’t mean that those military personnel are more responsible for the depravities they help enact than the government officials who sent them there, and it doesn’t mean they’re irredeemably evil — it just means they’re doing something immoral. We all do immoral things and make bad decisions from time to time. All it means is they need to course correct.

Baltimore Blocks East Palestine Toxic Water Dump
The contractor hired by Norfolk Southern to clean wastewater from its Ohio rail accident must find another destination
A Baltimore contractor has agreed to relocate the processing of hundreds of thousands of gallons of toxic wastewater from the site of last month’s Norfolk Southern train derailment after local officials mounted strong opposition to the disposal plan. Clean Harbors of Baltimore Environmental Services announced on Tuesday morning that approximately 600,000 to 800,000 gallons of water from East Palestine, Ohio would be processed elsewhere. Local officials had only learned on Friday that Norfolk Southern had contracted with Clean Harbors to ship enormous amounts of contaminated water from the derailment site to Baltimore. From there, the water would have been piped into Baltimore’s aging, leaky sewer system, and from there it would travel to the city’s troubled Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant. Just last year, the state declared the plant to be on the brink of “catastrophic failure,” and less than a month ago one of the plant’s buildings dedicated to processing sewage sludge suffered a massive explosion requiring its closure.

Baroness Goldie is an experienced Scottish politician and life peer who served as Leader of the Scottish Conservative Party from 2005 to 2011 and as the UK’s Minister of State for Defence since 2019. She is anything but a party girl like Liz Truss who often had to swallow her indiscreet words betraying ignorance. Certainly, Baroness Goldie understood perfectly well the implications of what she put down in a written statement at the House of Lords on March 20 in her answer to Lord Hylton’s seemingly innocuous question: “To ask His Majesty’s Government whether any of the ammunition currently being supplied to Ukraine contains depleted uranium.” (By the way, Lord Hylton is one of 92 hereditary peers elected to remain in the House of Lords; he is currently the longest-serving Crossbench member of the House of Lords, since 1968, and is a dynamic campaigner for peace and the interests of the vulnerable and the marginalised.)

Israel On Fire: A Legal Slippery Slope To National Disintegration
A proposal to overhaul Israel’s judicial system in favor of politicos has polarized the state, army, and populace, exposing Tel Aviv’s security vulnerabilities as never before.
Not for the first time, the state of Israel finds itself caught up in a ferocious domestic battle over amendments to the country’s legal fundamentals. This time, however, the national controversy caused by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judicial overhaul plan has revealed major cracks in the country’s social and security structures. The societal fractures are indeed in part due to the fact that Israel’s top political brass no longer seem to share a common vision on the state and its direction. This critical vulnerability has burst to the fore during weeks of domestic infighting. A rudderless and divided state, after all, can no longer expect to efficiently operate its ‘deterrence capacity’ and ‘national security’ priorities.

Why’s The West Paranoid About The Putin-Xi Summit?
The recently concluded summit consolidated Russia’s and China’s joint bid to challenge the US-dominated global system as well as concerted US efforts to undermine, using any means, emerging global powers. That the push to challenge this system is gaining momentum, evident from the support that both Russia and China continue to receive from the non-Western world, has left the West – especially, the US – paranoid about the future of the system they created after the Second World War. This growing paranoia is at the heart of an arrest warrant that the International Criminal Court issued last week against Putin. Ridiculous as this may sound, such actions only reveal the West’s inner anxieties about the failure of their combined efforts to defeat Russia in Ukraine. China, as it stands, has more manufacturing capacity today than the US-Europe combined. And, it is strong enough a military power to confront any western power in the Pacific or beyond. What can the West do to break this alliance? There is virtually no way the West can do any damage to this alliance; hence, the growing paranoia.

Louvre Closes In Protest
Staff joined demonstrators to block the entrance to the iconic museum
Workers at the Louvre Museum in Paris teamed up with pension reform protesters to block the entrance to the museum on Monday. France has been consumed by protests and riots since the government hiked the retirement age earlier this month. Dozens of protesters, many of them Louvre employees, gathered outside the glass pyramid holding trade union flags. The demonstration stopped tourists from visiting the museum, which houses priceless artworks such as Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Caravaggio’s ‘Death of the Virgin’. More widespread demonstrations are planned for Tuesday, but as the museum is usually closed on Tuesdays, staff there demonstrated a day early. Video footage shared online showed small groups of protesters walking through the museum’s subterranean entrance hall. “Join us to support the Mona Lisa on strike,” the CGT trade union declared on Twitter. A follow-up tweet by the union featured an image of an aged and wrinkled Mona Lisa, with a caption reading “64, it’s a no!”

The Best Way To Protect US Troops In Syria
Last week saw a sharp increase in attacks on US troops occupying northeastern Syria, with a drone strike against a US base blamed on “pro-Iran” forces and a US counter-strike said to have killed at least 19 people. After the US retaliation, another strike by “pro-Iran” forces hit a number of US sites in Syria. It may be just a matter of time before there are more strikes against the 900 US troops based in Syria against Syria’s wishes. One US contractor was killed last time. Next time it could be many more Americans. What’s behind the sudden escalation? Fundamental changes in the Middle East over the past month have highlighted how indefensible is the continued US occupation of Syria and Iraq. Take, for example, the recent historic mending of relations between former arch-enemies Saudi Arabia and Iran which was brokered by Washington’s own arch-enemy, China. US policy in the Middle East has long been “divide and conquer,” dating back at least to the Iran/Iraq war in the 1980s. US switching sides in that war guaranteed that the maximum amount of blood was spilled and that the simmering hatreds would continue to prevent any kind of lasting peace. Then the US invaded Iraq twenty years ago and turned Iraq into an Iranian ally. That’s neocon foreign policy for you: a 100 percent failure rate.

The Patriot Act On Steroids: D.C. Uniparty Wants To Use Anti-TikTok Legislation As Trojan Horse For Censorship And Surveillance
Beltway lawmakers are setting up a smokescreen to curtail rights. TikTok is indeed a pestilence upon our society. But there are right ways to go about minimizing this “digital opium” and its impact on our lives, and other means that will allow the American government to leverage the situation to further curtail our individual rights. And unsurprisingly, the latter idea is making lawmakers in the beltway beyond giddy this week. The Restricting the Emergence of Security Threats that Risk Information and Communications Technology (RESTRICT) Act (S.686), which was introduced in the Senate earlier this month, would do much more than just ban TikTok. This bill is no mere “TikTok ban,” it is a mechanism for a massive, sweeping surveillance and censorship overhaul.

Dangerous And Irresponsible For US And NATO To Push Russia Step By Step
When it comes to the Ukraine issue, the West and Russia have never stopped testing and pressuring each other. The greater the pressure the US and NATO apply on Russia, the greater Russia’s counterattack will be. NATO criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin for what it called his “dangerous and irresponsible” nuclear rhetoric on Sunday, a day after Putin said he planned to station tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, Reuters reported. On the same day, the EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell threatened on Twitter that “The EU stands ready to respond with further sanctions.” As for the recent escalation, the reason is UK’s irresponsible decision to provide depleted uranium munition to Ukraine. On the one hand, depleted uranium munitions have already exceeded the red line that Russia can accept. On the other, this shows Western countries like the UK have no bottom line in providing weapons to Ukraine. As a response, Russia has opted for deploying tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus.

The UK will send a total of 14 Challenger 2 tanks that will be armed with depleted uranium ammunition, a controversial munition that is radioactive and linked to cancer and birth defects in Iraq, where US forces commonly used the rounds. Britain’s deputy defense minister confirmed last week that the Challenger 2s would be armed with depleted uranium despite Russian warnings. Over the weekend, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia would deploy nuclear weapons to Belarus, a move he said was a response to the UK arming Ukraine with depleted uranium.

‘Butcher Of Tantura’, Who Bragged About Murdering Palestinians, Dies
The ‘Butcher of Tantura’, who often bragged about murdering unarmed Palestinians after invading their small hamlet on the Mediterranean coast in the summer of 1948, is dead. He was 96. Amitzur Cohen was groomed as part of the Zionist terrorist group Lehi and went on to carry out some of the most horrendous crimes against humanity, including the Tantura massacre. After the illegitimate Zionist entity came into existence in May 1948 as part of the British project to colonize Palestine, hundreds of Palestinian villages and cities were ethnically cleansed and destroyed. On the intervening night of May 22-23, the Palestinian coastal village of Tantura with a population of around 1,500 was among the last to be ambushed and occupied by the Israeli army’s Alexandroni Brigade, leaving behind a trail of death and destruction.

Israel: Hate Crimes Against Christians In Occupied Jerusalem Rising
Hate crimes including vandalism and assaults carried out by Israeli Jews against Arab Christians in occupied Jerusalem have been rising sharply since the start of this year, Haaretz revealed on Sunday. Church leaders attribute the rise of anti-Christian hate crimes to the rhetoric of the most extreme far-right government that Israel has ever had. According to Haaretz, the Israeli police do not take the issue seriously enough and refuse to recognise the growing number of hate crimes. Christians now feel that it is futile to report such incidents. An Armenian priest quoted by the Jerusalem Inter-Church Centre said that he has been spat on more than ninety times this year already, mostly in Jerusalem’s Old City.
“Greater Israel” Or “Greater Khazaria”?
Divide and conquer is an age-old strategy for empire-builders. Drive your opponents to fight among themselves, then pillage and subjugate them. Josef Stalin successfully employed this method in World War II, with the fawning complicity of Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt. Now the Zionists—and their American lackeys—are doing the same to establish Israeli hegemony throughout the Middle East and North Africa. And it was long planned. But is the intention merely for “Greater Israel”—“from the Nile to the Euphrates,” as Theodor Herzl proclaimed—or is this the first step toward a world empire we should call “Greater Khazaria”? In 1982, the World Zionist Organization’s Department of Information, their propaganda arm, published “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties,” by Oded Yinon. This “Yinon Plan” has been followed for decades by Israel in order to establish “Greater Israel.”

UNSC Fails To Adopt Russia-Drafted Resolution Calling For Nord Stream Probe
UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – The UN Security Council on Monday failed to adopt a Russia-drafted resolution calling for the establishment of a commission to investigate the Nord Stream sabotage. The UN Security Council on Monday did not support a Russian-Chinese resolution on an international investigation into the sabotage of the Nord Streams. The resolution was supported by Russia, China and Brazil; no one voted against it, while Albania, Great Britain, Gabon, Ghana, Malta, Mozambique, UAE, USA, France, Switzerland, Ecuador, and Japan abstained. The resolution was also co-authored by Belarus, the DPRK, Eritrea, Nicaragua, Syria and Venezuela. However, they are not members of the UN Security Council and did not participate in the vote. It is currently known that Sweden, Denmark and Germany are conducting their own investigations into the incident.

US “Strongly Urges” Compromise As Massive Protests Erupt Across Israel After Anti-Judicial-Reform Minister Fired
Massive protests have erupted across Israel tonight after PM Netanyhau fired his Defense Minister, a day after he called on the Israeli leader to halt a planned judicial overhaul that has fiercely divided the country. As a reminder, Netanyahu and his allies say the plan will restore a balance between the judicial and executive branches and rein in what they see as an interventionist court with liberal sympathies. But critics say the constellation of laws will remove the checks and balances in Israel’s democratic system and concentrate power in the hands of the governing coalition. Gallant’s dismissal signaled that Netanyahu will move ahead this week with the overhaul plan, which has sparked mass protests, angered military and business leaders and raised concerns among Israel’s allies.

UK Oncologist Warns Cancers Are Rapidly Developing Post-Covid Vaccination – “I Am Experienced Enough To Know This Is Not Coincidental”
Dr. Angus Dalgleish, a renowned oncologist practising in the UK, recently wrote an open letter to the editor-in-chief of the medical journal The BMJ, urging the journal that harmful effects of Covid injections be “aired and debated immediately” because cancers and other diseases are rapidly progressing among “boosted” people. Dr. Dalgleish is a Professor of Oncology at St George’s, University of London. His letter to Dr. Kamran Abbasi, the Editor in Chief of the BMJ, was written in support of a colleague’s plea to Dr. Abbasi that the BMJ make valid informed consent for Covid vaccination a priority topic.

The Real Insurrection, And The Dirty Politics Of Jan. 6
The Democrats say that Jan. 6 was the worst attack on American democracy since the Civil War. They call it an insurrection, but if it was indeed the worst since 1865, no one but a fool would dare claim it even remotely approached the scale of the bloody war between the states. And if you weren’t a fool, you might conclude that Jan. 6 was nothing like an insurrection. It wasn’t violent in the sense of an armed rebellion. It wasn’t organized. And it didn’t seek to overthrow the government, but to protect the Constitution. In more ways than not, it was a defense of American democracy, not an attack on it.

Is The General Medical Council Just An Enforcer For The Drug Industry?
Throughout the fake pandemic the General Medical Council (a charity which is responsible for regulating doctors in the UK) has disciplined doctors who have disagreed with the lies told by the Government and the medical establishment. Doctors who have spoken out in public and who have criticised the covid-19 jabs or who questioned the absurd and now proven to be inaccurate claim that covid-19 was the cause of a serious pandemic, have had their licences removed as a punishment and as a deterrent to others who might dare speak out. Now, however, it seems to me that the General Medical Council has itself been behaving quite improperly. Its disciplinary actions must surely now come into question.

Unvaccinated vs Vaccinated Blood Comparison
Infrared Spectroscopy and Electrical Conductivity Studies – Ana Mihalcea, MD, PhD In Conjunction with Clifford Carnicom
In this article, I describe a series of experiments that were done on six unvaccinated blood samples and three vaccinated blood samples with Infrared Spectroscopy and a electrical conductivity meter. The purpose of this investigation is to begin to quantify with objective measurements what has happened to the blood of humanity since the roll out of the C19 injections. As I have described in previous posts, ribbon like structures have been found in vaccinated and unvaccinated live blood analysis at an unprecedented rate, in addition to extensive rouleaux formation and micro clotting.

The New York Times Is A Disgusting Militarist Smut Rag
I hate The New York Times. Hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it. With every fiber of my being, from the depths of my immortal soul. The “paper of record” for the most murderous and tyrannical nation on earth, The New York Times has been run by the same family since the late 1800s, during which time it has supported every depraved American war and has reliably dished out propaganda to manufacture consent for the political status quo necessary for the operation of a globe-spanning empire that is fueled by human blood and suffering. It is a plague upon our world, and it should be destroyed, buried, and peed on. And I am being charitable. Among the latest items of unforgivable militarist smut churned out by the Times is an article titled “An Anxious Asia Arms for a War It Hopes to Prevent,” which freakishly frames the US as just a passive, innocent witness to the US military encirclement of China.

American Pravda: The Leo Frank Case And The Origins Of The ADL
About a week ago both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal devoted considerable space to the coverage of “Parade,” the revival of a 1998 Broadway musical on the 1915 killing of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager in Atlanta, Georgia, arguably the most famous lynching in American history. Frank had been convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a young girl in his employ and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was founded in an effort to save his life. After numerous legal appeals failed, the state’s governor eventually commuted Frank’s sentence and a group of outraged citizens responded by hanging Frank. The incident was portrayed in both the musical and the associated media coverage as a particularly horrifying example of American anti-Semitism. Anonymous works published by heavily-demonized religious-political movements naturally engender considerable caution, but once I began reading the 500 pages of The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man I was tremendously impressed by the quality of the historical analysis. I think I have only very rarely encountered a research monograph on a controversial historical event that provided such an enormous wealth of carefully-argued analysis backed by such copious evidence. The authors seemed to display complete mastery of the major secondary literature of the last one hundred years while drawing very heavily upon the various primary sources, including court records, personal correspondence, and contemporaneous publications, with the overwhelming majority of the 1200 footnotes referencing newspaper and magazine articles of that era. The case they made for Frank’s guilt seemed absolutely overwhelming.

Time To “STFB?”
“BTFD” is sooo 2010s… is it time for a new strategy?
To make a very long story very short, a single investment rule would have served you very well from 1982 to 2022. Wall Street pros expressed it crudely: BTFD. (Buy the F…ing Dip). What simple rule works today? STFB (Sell the F…ing Bounce)? On Friday, the financial press was worried about the latest wobbly bank. Bloomberg: Deutsche Bank Shares Plunge in Renewed Bout of Stress. Deutsche Bank AG became the latest focus of the banking turmoil in Europe as ongoing concern about the industry sent its shares slumping the most in three years and the cost of insuring against default rising. The bank, which has staged a recovery in recent years after a series of crises, said Friday it will redeem a tier 2 subordinated bond early. Such moves are usually intended to give investors confidence in the strength of the balance sheet, though the share price reaction suggests the message isn’t getting through.

Understanding The International Rules Based Disorder
Have you heard of the “International Rules Based Order?” Russia, according to Washington and NATO, is violating those rules (China too) and must be punished. We can’t have “rule breakers” mucking up global tranquility can we? Since 1945, the United States has pursued its global interests by building and maintaining various alliances, economic institutions, security organizations, political and liberal norms, and other tools — often collectively referred to as the international order. . . . Building an international order has been a formal program of U.S. foreign policy since at least the 1940s and an aspirational goal since the nation’s founding. According to its post–World War II architects, the international order protects U.S. values by maintaining an environment in which the ideals of a free and democratic society — like that of the United States — can flourish. The United States has used both power and idealistic notions of shared interests to underwrite the rules-based order. In this sense, it employed both hard and soft power to construct the order. Got it? The so-called international order basically is a systemis of rules that the United States sets and arbitrarily decides whether or not a foreign country is complying or disobeying. The bottom line? These “rules” are designed to promote U.S. interests at the expense of others.
