Archbishop Viganò: Christ Must Be Recognized As King Over This World, Not Simply Our Hearts
The exercise of kingly authority – and more generally of government – must be consistent with the will of God Himself, from whom all authority emanates.
Editor’s note: The following essay is taken from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s homily on the feast of Christ the King.
(LifeSiteNews) — Regnum eius regnum sempiternum est, et omnes reges servient ei et obedient – For his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Once upon a time there was a king. Thus began the fairy tales we heard as children, at a time when ideological indoctrination had not yet come to corrupt children in their innocence and we could serenely speak of kings, princes, and princesses, and it was normal to think that at least in the world of fairy tales there could be a social order not subverted by the Revolution. Realms, thrones, crowns, honor, loyalty, and chivalry were all references that went beyond time and fashions, precisely because of their coherence with the divine cosmos, with the eternal and immutable hierarchy of the celestial orders. There were also kings in the parables with which the Lord instructed His disciples, and He proclaimed Himself to be a king as He stood before Pilate clothed in mockery with a purple robe, crowned with thorns, holding a reed instead of a scepter. He was mocked by the scoundrels for being a king, and the governor of Judea recognized Him as king when He had the plaque affixed to the Cross indicating the reason for His condemnation to death: “Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudæorum.” The Sanhedrin would have liked to correct that inscription: Do not write: ‘The King of the Jews,’ but: ‘This man said, ‘I am the King of the Jews.’’ (Jn 19:21)

Nakba 2.0 Revives The Neocon Wars
The Israel vs. Arab Children War, which doubles as the Hegemon vs. Axis of Resistance War, both a sub-branch of the NATO vs. Russia and NATO vs. China War, is veering totally out of control. By now it’s firmly established that with China brokering peace all across West Asia, and Russia-China going all out on BRICS 11, complete with facilitating energy trade settlements outside the U.S. dollar, The Empire Strikes Back would be totally predictable: Let’s set West Asia on fire. The immediate goal of Straussian neocon psychos and their silos across the Beltway is to go for Syria, Lebanon – and ultimately Iran. That’s what explains the presence in the Central and Eastern Mediterranean of a fleet of at least 73 U.S./NATO warships – ranging from two American aircraft carrier groups to 30+ ships from 14 NATO members involved in the ongoing Dynamic Mariner war games off the coast of Italy. That’s the largest concentration of U.S./NATO warships since the 1970s. Anyone believing this fleet is being assembled to “assist” Israel in its Final Solution project of imposing Nakba 2.0 on Gaza must read some Lewis Carroll. The shadow war already in play aims to smash all the Axis of Resistance nodes in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq – with Iran kept as the culminating piece de resistance. Any military analyst with an IQ over room temperature knows all those expensive American iron bathtubs are destined to become sub-oceanic coral reef design – especially if visited by hypersonic missiles. Of course, this could all be just your average American Power Projection/Deterrence Show. The main actors – Iran and Russia – are not impressed. All it takes is a backward glance over the shoulders at what a bunch of mountain goat herders with fake Kalashnikovs did to NATO in Afghanistan. Moreover, the Hegemon would need to rely on a serious network of bases on the ground if it ever considered launching a war against Iran. No West Asia actor would allow the U.S. to use bases in Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq or even Jordan. Baghdad is already engaged, for quite a while, in getting rid of all American bases.

Israel Threatens To Assassinate Syrian President Assad
If Hezbollah enters the Palestine Israel war – there will be repercussions according to Israel
Israel has recently made a series of unprecedented threats against the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance party and Syria’s President Bashar Al Assad. Speaking through French negotiators Israel informed Hezbollah that “it is not interested in the war, but ready to wage it if it is imposed on [Israel]”. This was recounted by Israeli political sources to Hebrew media outlet Yedioth Ahronoth. Israel has stated that it will not wage war “according to Hezbollah’s agenda and [the region] will witness strategic shocks”. According to the message passed to Hezbollah by France – if Hezbollah fully commits to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestinian Resistance factions, Israel will “resort to American power to suppress Hezbollah”. A clear admission that Israel is incapable of suppressing Hezbollah alone without US help. Added to which Israel knows that virtually the entire region is poised to intervene also. Even states like Jordan who have good relations historically with the British neocolonialists and Israel have one of the largest diaspora Palestinian populations in the region that have been protesting in vast numbers to open the borders with Palestine to enter the conflict. Israel also threatened the security of President Assad were Hezbollah to enter the war. In this scenario, Israel would confront and overthrow the Syrian government – a veiled threat was conveyed that there would be an assassination attempt on President Assad personally.

Israel Compiled ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ Plan For Gaza – Media
A document leaked to the Sicha Mekomit news site calls on the government to relocate the entire population of Gaza to the Sinai
A leaked policy document compiled by Israel’s Ministry of Intelligence calls for the depopulation of Gaza and the forced displacement of its residents to Egyptian territory, according to a copy published by the Sicha Mekomit news site on Saturday. The ten-page document, dated October 13, recommends that Israel establish tent cities in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula to accommodate the Gazan population. These tent cities should then be developed into permanent settlements, with a “sterile zone of several kilometers” separating them from the Israeli border. Under the plan, Gaza’s 2.3 million residents would be told that “there is no longer any hope of returning to the territories that Israel will occupy in the near future,” and that “Allah made sure that you lost this land because of the leadership of Hamas.”

India’s Solidarity With Israel Is Untenable
India’s muscular diplomacy, an attribute of the present government, has run into heavy weather. Body blows from multiple sources — spat with Canada; Maldives’ triumphalism about evicting Indian servicemen; China-Bhutan normalisation, etc. — testify to it. On top of it comes the latest diplomatic faux pas at the UN GA over the Gaza situation and a not-entirely unrelated shock and awe dealt out by Qatar past week. Doha has handed down death sentence to eight Indian ex-naval officers on charges of spying for Israel. Any whichever way one looks at the Explanation of Vote (EoV) on the UN General Assembly resolution on Thursday on Gaza, India’s abstention was a mistake. Simply put, our diplomacy has become entrapped in our solidarity with Israel. The topmost consideration for India at the UN GA debate should have been that the draft was tabled by the Arab and OIC countries with whom India has fraternal ties, and, second, it called for “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce” in Gaza, which is an urgent necessity.

US And Israel Should Approach International Criticism Rationally
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday that Israel is now “heading into the second stage of the war,” the Israeli troops expanded their ground operations in the Gaza Strip. The stepped-up attacks came despite a mounting international outcry for a “humanitarian pause” to allow aid in. The current ground operations have evidently resulted in excessive casualties, and with the situation in Gaza deteriorating further, a humanitarian disaster in the Gaza Strip is poised to escalate. Continuous casualties will only breed more hatred. Strategically, this is not merely a military test for Israel but also a test of wisdom. Excessive actions will cause Israel to lose the sympathy gained due to Hamas’ attacks. Likewise, for the US, this is not merely a military test, but also a test of conscience. This traditional conflict in the international arena has lasted half a century and is confined to a very small region. However, the current situation has turned into a humanitarian catastrophe. Militarily, this is an entirely unequal confrontation. One side is a state apparatus, the other side consists of civilians. If the US continues to support Israel in killings of innocent civilians, it will only make more countries realize that the US and Israel represent international hegemony and power politics.

IDF Tanks Reach Outskirts Of Gaza City, Cut Key North-South Highway, After Netanyahu’s Chilling War Message To “Smite Amalek”
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) says it has killed dozens of Hamas militants, among them commanders, as it pushes deeper into Gaza, with tanks being seen Monday on the outskirts of Gaza City, blocking a key road linking the northern and southern halves of the Strip. Hamas has also announced it is engaged in “heavy fighting… with the invading occupation force”, after the IDF confirmed more Israeli troops have been surged into the Strip. It appears the warring sides are in some locales engaged in building-to-building and door-to-door fighting in the dense urban zone. “Overnight, troops eliminated dozens of terrorists who barricaded themselves in the buildings and tried to attack the forces that were moving in their direction,” IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said. “We are carrying out an expanded ground operation into the Strip… forces are moving towards the terrorists, the terrorists are barricading themselves in staging grounds, and we are attacking them from the air.”

Israel-Palestine War: Will The West Choose Genocide Or Peace?
Western leaders have a stark choice to make. They can be complicit in another Nakba, or push for a genuine political process that includes the Palestinian people
Twenty days into Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, thousands of people have been killed, with the death toll climbing each hour – and still, the West remains silent. Over the course of my career, I have covered Israel’s repeated massacres in Gaza, its violent occupation of the West Bank, and the introduction of racist laws targeting Palestinian citizens of Israel. But I have never witnessed a war like this. Despite the fear, trauma and shock of the 7 October Hamas attack, Israel has crossed many red lines in its disproportionate response. The country has entered a genocidal state of mind – and it will be hard to go back. In a recent interview with Al Jazeera, former Knesset member Moshe Feiglin said the only solution is the “complete destruction of Gaza … destruction like in Dresden and Hiroshima, without a nuclear weapon”.

Deadly Strike On Journalists In Southern Lebanon ‘Targeted’, Coming From Israel: Reporters Without Borders
An investigation by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has found out that an artillery shelling that killed a Reuters journalist and injured six others in southern Lebanon earlier this month was deliberate and came from Israel. Video journalist Issam Abdallah, who worked for Reuters, died and six other journalists were wounded — including two from AFP, one of them seriously — in the Israeli shelling of the village of Alma al-Shaab in southern Lebanon on October 13. Qatar-based Al Jazeera said the network’s cameraperson Elie Brakhia and reporter Carmen Joukhadar were also among those wounded in the attack. “The initial findings of the investigation show that the reporters were not collateral victims of the shooting,” the RSF said on Sunday, adding, “One of their vehicles, marked ‘press’, was targeted, and it was also clear that the group stationed next to it was [comprised of] journalists.”

Warrant For Genocide: Netanyahu Urges Israeli Troops To Regard The Palestinians As “Amalek”
In the Old Testament the Amalekites were exterminated: “man, woman and infant”
It’s Sunday, not normally a good day for gaining people’s attention on news or analytical current events’ columns. The ongoing emergency-the massacre of children and other civilians in Gaza however-trumps all other considerations, at least for this writer, so here goes. Part One: Netanyahu Channels Amalek. Michael Hoffman’s Revelation of the Method is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber. In their ignorance (or malice), Old Testament haters will have a field day with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu having channeled “Amalek” as he ordered the Israeli army to invade Gaza on October 28. This fact is so incendiary that a quick search of the New York Times today reveals that the “newspaper of record” hasn’t dared to mention it thus far.

Jaw-Dropping Fact: CDC Data Confirms Covid Vaccine Can Reduce Your Lifespan By At Least 24 Years
The long-term consequences of Covid-19 vaccination are now being realised… A year ago, doubly vaccinated Australians were 10.72x more likely to catch Omicron than the unvaxxed. Now they are 20x more likely and the triply or more vaxxed are 35x more likely, as the latest NSW Health stats show (see below). Meanwhile, the latest Cleveland Clinic Data and the latest US data analysed by Josh Stirling, founder of Insurance Collaboration to Save Livess and former #1 ranked Insurance Analyst, shows a really really disturbing trend. The damage to health caused by each vaccine dose does not lessen over time. It continues indefinitely. In fact, CDC All-Cause Mortality data show that each vaccine dose increased mortality by 7% in the year 2022 compared to the mortality in year 2021. So if you have had 5 doses then you were 35% more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021. If you have had one dose then you were 7% more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021. If you are unvaxxed then you were no more likely to die in 2022 than you were in 2021.

October 7 Testimonies Reveal Israel’s Military ‘Shelling’ Israeli Citizens With Tanks, Missiles
Israel’s military received orders to shell Israeli homes and even their own bases as they were overwhelmed by Hamas militants on October 7. How many Israeli citizens said to have been “burned alive” were actually killed by friendly fire?
Several new testimonies by Israeli witnesses to the October 7 Hamas surprise attack on southern Israel adds to growing evidence that the Israeli military killed its own citizens as they fought to neutralize Palestinian gunmen. Tuval Escapa, a member of the security team for Kibbutz Be’eri, set up a hotline to coordinate between kibbutz residents and the Israeli army. He told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that as desperation began to set in, “the commanders in the field made difficult decisions – including shelling houses on their occupants in order to eliminate the terrorists along with the hostages.” A separate report published in Haaretz noted that the Israeli military was “compelled to request an aerial strike” against its own facility inside the Erez Crossing to Gaza “in order to repulse the terrorists” who had seized control. That base was filled with Israeli Civil Administration officers and soldiers at the time. These reports indicate that orders came down from the military’s high command to attack homes and and other areas inside Israel, even at the cost of many Israeli lives.

Attacks On US Bases In Iraq And Syria Continue After US Airstrikes
Explosions were reported at a US base in eastern Syria on Sunday
Attacks on US bases in Iraq and Syria have continued through the weekend after the US launched airstrikes in eastern Syria early Friday. Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen reported that a group calling itself the Islamic Resistance in Iraq said it “successfully” targeted the US’s al-Shadadi base in northeast Syria’s al-Hasakah province on Sunday. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported a drone attack on the al-Shadadi base, saying explosions were heard in the area and smoke columns rose from the base. Al Mayadeen also reported an overnight attack on a US base in Syria’s eastern Deir Ezzor province. The Sunday attacks have not yet been confirmed by the US military. US officials have confirmed to The Associated Press that a US base in eastern Syria came under attack on Friday after the US launched airstrikes in the area. US officials also confirmed a drone was fired at the Ain al-Assad airbase in western Iraq, which houses US troops and was shot down.

Before They Launch Missiles, They Launch Propaganda Campaigns (Text and Video)
Before they launch missiles, they launch propaganda campaigns. Before they roll out tanks, they roll out narratives. Everyone who helps manufacture consent for the killing in Gaza is just as culpable for the murder of those thousands of children as the people dropping the bombs. In case you missed it there’s an overwhelming amount of evidence that many of the horrific acts Hamas is accused of committing on October 7 (burning people alive, burning babies, mowing down concertgoers, etc) were actually the result of indiscriminate fire by Israeli forces. Here’s a link to a Grayzone article and a link to a video presentation by Propaganda & Co, both citing Israeli media reports as their evidence. To be clear none of this means Israel killed everyone who died on October 7 or that Hamas didn’t kill noncombatants, it just means the narrative is wrong.

The French Revolution – A Study In Democracy (.pdf)
From the Epilogue: “I am convinced that the day will come when the world, enlightened by the principles of true democracy, will recognise that the French Revolution was not an advance towards democracy but a directly anti-democratic and reactionary movement, that it was not a struggle for liberty but an attempt to strangle liberty at its birth; the leaders will then be seen in their true colours as the cruellest enemies of the people, and the people, no longer condemned for their ferocity, will be pitied as the victims of a gigantic conspiracy . It was this conspiracy, or rather this combination of conspiracies, that alone triumphed in the Revolution; it was the same great intrigues at work amongst the people in 1789 that survived all the storms that followed after and that now once again threaten the peace of the world.”

Widespread Destruction In Jenin Following Massive Israeli Raid (Text and Video)
Palestinian resistance factions in the occupied West Bank drove off the invading forces after hours of heavy clashes
Dozens of Israeli army vehicles, bulldozers, and drones wreaked havoc to the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on 30 October during an early morning raid that saw Palestinian resistance fighters powerfully confront the invading forces. Watch: The occupying Israeli army destroys the main gate to the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. pic.twitter.com/P0pG5a6KSm — Quds News Network (@QudsNen) October 30, 2023. Following the devastating incursion, the Jenin Brigades issued a statement confirming that their fighters drove off the Israeli army, damaging at least 30 Israeli armored vehicles and leaving an unknown number of Israeli soldiers dead. For its part, the Palestinian Health Ministry said at least four Palestinians were killed during the clashes in Jenin. About 120 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank since 7 October, with nearly 2,000 injured. The Israeli forces besieged the rebellious city from the early hours of Monday, attacking Jenin Governmental Hospital, dropping bombs on residential buildings, destroying streets leading up to the adjacent refugee camp, placing dirt mounds to separate the camp from the city, and bulldozing major landmarks.

October 30: Today’s News On Palestine And Israel
Update on Gaza: death toll, new hostage video, humanitarian aid, medical risks, Israeli advances, US presidential promises. West Bank deaths.
This is a developing story, check back for updates. Find daily casualty figures and previous daily news updates here. For more news, go here and here. Live news is here.
Latest statistics: Palestinian death toll 7,951* (7,835 in Gaza* (including 3,457 children, 2,136 women, and at least 116 in the West Bank); 23,059 injured (21,048 in Gaza and over 2,011 in the West Bank). It remains unknown how many Americans are among the casualties. About 1.4 million people have been displaced. more than 1,950 missing (1,050 children) and presumed to be under rubble. *NOTE: The official OCHA death toll includes 471 Gazans killed in the Al Ahli hospital blast. IAK does not yet include those deaths since the source of the projectile is in dispute; although much evidence points to Israel as the culprit, experts are still looking into the incident. Israel is blocking an international investigation. Israeli death toll remains near 1,400 (1 killed in West Bank, 1 in Gaza), including 32 Americans, and 5,431 injured. (It is unclear how many of the Israeli deaths and injuries may have been caused by Israeli soldiers; additionally, since Israel has a policy of universal conscription, it is unknown how many of those attending the outdoor rave a few miles from Gaza were Israeli soldiers.)

Ex-IDF (Israel Defense Forces) Dropped A Truth Bomb On Oct 7th – “It’s An Inside Job!” (9:22)

Multiple Reports: Hamas Warned Israel Prior To October 7 Attack (Text and Video)
The scholar Ilan Pappé noted in a recent talk, given after the Oct. 7 attack, that of central importance for all the Palestinians “has been the political prisoners” – with Israel holding many Palestinians without charge while, Pappé notes, the PA was “doing nothing”. He notes, Hamas “warned Israel…we will not sit idle as long as the political prisoners are not going to be released…we will do all we can to abduct Israeli soldiers and citizens so we have something to deal with in order to deal with the most important thing for our society, which are the political prisoners.” Many thanks to Decensored News for video. On Oct. 7, the day of the attacks, Hamas released a statement, which read in part: “Head of the Hamas political bureau Ismail Haniyeh said that the movement warned the Israeli occupation from continuing its crimes against the Palestinian people but it ignored the warnings.

Are You Seeking The Approval Of Men, Or The Approval Of God?
When Jesus Christ walked on this earth in the First Century, he claimed to be “the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) In his teaching to his disciples during those days, he also made it very clear that the cost to follow Jesus, and to stand for the Truth, was a costly one, and that in order to follow him as the source of all truth would require one to be willing to give up everything this life has to offer, including relationships with friends and loved ones. Jesus also made it very clear that those who did follow him and stand for the Truth, would be very few, and always the minority. Some of the most miserable people of society are those who understand the Truth intellectually, but are not willing to follow the Truth, because the cost is too high. It’s very difficult to always be in the minority, with everyone opposing you, because you do not follow the crowd. Today, if you live in the United States, Zionism dominates our culture, especially Evangelical Christian teaching.

Floridians Seek Justice!
Shout out to Attorney Rachel Rodriguez of Vires Law Group! They have provided the Florida Attorney General with a document on behalf of 32 next of kin of those that died due to hospital protocols. They list Anthony Fauci and other officials as persons of interest. National ARM has also previously provided Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody a brief listing persons of interest, including Anthony Fauci. Vires Law Group’s impressive legal brief appears focused more on the deadly hospital protocols. It is important that more attorneys and organizations start pressuring Attorney Gerneral to investigate those murdered by hospital protocols and the C19 bioweapons injections.

New Study Identifies Common Physical Features In Babies Born To Mothers Who Used Fentanyl
Babies born to mothers who used fentanyl during pregnancy displayed similar facial and musculoskeletal abnormalities that suggest the emergence of a novel syndrome, according to research published in the journal Genetics in Medicine Open. In the summer of 2022, a genetic counselor and a group of physicians at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware, noticed that several infants who were referred by local neonatal intensive care units or brought to the hospital for feeding difficulties shortly after birth had similar facial features and multiple physical abnormalities, explained senior author Karen W. Gripp, MD, Chief of the Division of Medical Genetics at Nemours Children’s Health, Delaware Valley. Gripp and colleagues enrolled six Nemours patients in a study to further assess their symptoms and characteristics. Four infants from other institutions were added later. Gripp said the infants all had small heads, short stature, and distinctive facial features. Multiple infants had cleft palate, “rocker bottom” feet, and malformed genital organs. Other common features included short, broad thumbs, a single palmar crease, and fused toes.

The Counterculture Everyone Forgot
Rather than mocking the Counterculture, we would benefit from re-acquiring its values that favored frugality and the ownership of skills, work, enterprise and land.
Mention the Counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s, and the memory stored in popular culture is of drug-dazed, half-naked hippies dancing to rock music. There was a slice of that, to be sure, but there was much more that’s largely been forgotten: The Counterculture was primarily a response to the meaningless debt-dependent consumerism that had already taken hold of our society and economy. The core values of the Counterculture Everyone Forgot were: Learning how to make and repair things oneself. Frugality. Rejection of debt. I submit that the value of these life precepts will become increasingly visible and necessary. As I’ve explained before, reliance on debt incentivizes the most destructive and unsustainable traits of human nature: choosing the painless, sacrifice-free option of pushing costs into the future, the removal of any incentive to become more productive and efficient, and the optimization of the illusion that the future will painlessly be able to not just service the current mountain of debt but an entire mountain range of debt that will pile up as our borrowing increases.

Israel’s Plan Is To Crush You And Your People,’ Hezbollah Warns Arab States
Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem has lauded the steadfastness of the resistance front in the face of the Israeli occupation. Sheikh Qassem warned certain Arab states in the region that they will not be spared from Israeli brutality if they do not throw their weight behind the Palestinians in Gaza. The high-ranking official with the Lebanese resistance movement made the remarks in a statement on his X social media account on Sunday, the 23 day of Israel’s constant bombardment of Gaza. “Let the Arab rulers know the resistance is strong, steadfast and victorious, God Almighty willing, and the days will prove that,” Sheikh Qassem said. “You should know that Israel’s plan is to crush you and your people. What is happening in Gaza is a model for you and your role after it unless you are slaves and subject to it. And remember that the Israeli slogan is ‘From the Euphrates to the Nile.”

Leaked: Israeli Plan To Ethnically Cleanse Gaza
The plan advocates the forced transfer of the population of the Gaza Strip to Sinai permanently, and calls for the international community to be leveraged to assist the move
Israeli culture magazine Mekovit published on 28 October a leaked document issued by Israel’s Ministry of Intelligence recommending the occupation of Gaza and total transfer of its 2.3 million inhabitants to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. The document, issued on 13 October, identifies a plan to transfer all residents of the Gaza Strip to North Sinai as the preferred option among three alternatives regarding the future of the Palestinians in Gaza at the end of the current war between Israel and the Hamas-led Palestinian resistance. The document recommends that Israel evacuate the Gazan population to Sinai during the war, establish tent cities and new cities in northern Sinai to accommodate the deported population, and then create a closed security zone stretching several kilometers inside Egypt. The deported Palestinians would not be allowed to return to any areas near the Israeli border.

Meetings and Stories by Mark R. Elsis, Chapter 7, Pattie Boyd


It was not too long after the assassination of John Lennon. I was driving my taxi, going west on 72nd Street, approaching Park Avenue, when the light at the intersection turned red. I was waiting behind many cars for the light to change when I saw a vision of beauty from afar, with her hand raised. When she realized I was available, she lowered her hand and began to walk toward my taxi.

As she walked closer, there was something exceedingly special about her energy. Each day, I saw countless beautiful women while driving my taxi in Manhattan, but this woman was adorable and enchanting. I didn’t have any idea of who she was.

This gorgeous being got in, sat down, and the exact moment she shut the door, the song “Something” began playing on the radio. She told me her destination, then promptly told me George wrote this song on the back of an envelope like Lincoln supposedly did with the Gettysburg Address. I turned around and said, Pattie, Pattie Boyd? She said yes, I’m Pattie Boyd. I didn’t say anything else while “Something” was playing.

After “Something” had finished, I told her how unbelievably strange it was that, the exact moment you shut the door, the song “Something” started to play. Back then, one heard “Something” every once in a while on the radio. But for Pattie Boyd to sit in my taxi and the instant she does, for “Something” to start playing, is miraculous. She told me that she hadn’t heard it in quite a long time, and after all these years, what a beautiful song it is.

I brought up how incredible it must feel knowing that you were the muse for two of the greatest love songs ever written, “Something” by George Harrison and “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton. She forthrightly conversed with me about George and Eric and was genuinely grateful for her part in history.

Thou Shalt Not Kill.
Our survival depends upon surmounting moments such as these
As a member of the US Congress for 16 years, I gave over 500 speeches warning about the consequences of US wars against Afghanistan, the Balkans, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria. I spoke for the imperative of peace in the Middle East, on behalf of Israelis and the Palestinians alike. I met with leaders of many countries who were grappling to keep their nations out of conflict and I came to understand the role some in the US government have played to intentionally catalyze war, fueling arms sales globally, without regard for the consequences. The consequences are here!
We are cartwheeling towards a massive East v. West war with religious and ethnic overtones. This seemingly inexorable March of (nuclear) Folly, will ultimately pit the United States militarily against China, Russia and their allies. The US, with its political divisions on full display, functions now only for purposes of funding wars. Otherwise, the government will shut down over its inability to balance the books from the expenses of previous wars which were put on the national credit card. The polarization of US politics, the cognitively impaired and failing executive branch, the instability of the congressional leadership, the purblind partisanship, the ideologically, click-bait driven media has produced a mad blood lust for war against Iran and acceleration toward the abyss.

Hamas Resists Israeli Offensive In Gaza After Violent Night Of Airstrikes
Gaza is under a total communication blackout after Israeli jets launched the most intense bombing campaign on the strip since the start of the war
Gaza-based Palestinian resistance faction Hamas announced on 28 October that its forces successfully held back invading Israeli troops who overnight launched large-scale ground operations into the coastal enclave under the cover of intense air raids. Hamas says its forces dealt “heavy losses to the enemy’s ranks” as they repelled the ground incursion. Nonetheless, heavy clashes continue in several points of the northern Gaza Strip. “The enemy fell into ambushes set up by the Palestinian resistance on several fronts. Kornet missiles and Yasin shells were used to repel the attack, and we expect the enemy to try again. The Israeli regime used helicopters to evacuate the wounded and the dead from the battlefield,” the Hamas statement reads. For their part, Israeli media claims there are “no reports of Israeli casualties” and that “ground forces, including infantry, combat engineering forces, and tanks, remained inside Gaza […] operating deeper into the Hamas-run territory than previous limited incursions.” On Friday night, the Israeli army began what officials described as an “expansion” of their ground operations into Gaza after several nights of “limited incursions” that were also repelled by the Palestinian resistance. According to local reports, the elite US Delta Force has been accompanying Israeli troops into the besieged territory. However, Washington maintains that its forces only provide logistical advice to Tel Aviv.

Biden Justifies Strikes On Syria
Washington claims that “protecting” its illegal outposts is “consistent with international law”
US President Joe Biden has offered legal justification for American airstrikes on eastern Syria this week, saying the operations were a rightful response to a string of drone and rocket attacks on US forces in the region. In a letter to US lawmakers published on Friday, the White House said the air operations were in line with presidential war powers, and followed repeated “attacks against United States personnel and facilities in Iraq and Syria” this month. “At my direction, on the night of October 26, 2023, United States forces conducted targeted strikes against facilities in eastern Syria,” Biden said, adding that the sorties hit sites used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and “affiliated groups.”

Industrial Warfare vs Wall Street Uber Alles
Hopefully, Vladimir Putin helps to stop WW III so we have a future to discuss. The future is grim for those paid in dollars. But that was intentional. It was designed to transfer all wealth from those who work for dollars to those who have the right charge us interest on money bankers created out of nothing. You do not have to live in the US for New York Bankers to rob you by the trillions. All you have to do is to sell things overseas for I Owe You Nothing Federal Reserve Notes. In 24 months you won’t be able to buy anything with Federal Reserve Notes. It was designed to be that way when the agents of the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and the Warburgs wrote the draft for the Federal Reserve Act in 1910. It seems we are headed to Hyperinflation in the non-BRICS+ (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South, Africa, + the Global South) world. For those in the West, our Central Banks have written into law, the concept of depositors as investors in the bank so the authorities can seize deposits to pay for bank losses in what is called a Bail-In.

China Completes First Cross-Border Crude Oil Settlement In Digital Yuan
The China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) recently completed a transaction settlement of 1 million barrels of crude oil with digital yuan, which analysts said marks a further step of the internationalization of the Chinese currency. The batch of crude oil was purchased by CNPC via Shanghai Petroleum and Natural Gas Exchange (SHPGX), and the contract was made on October 19, SHPGX announced on Friday. The completion of the settlement followed the Shanghai municipal government’s call for enterprises to use digital yuan in international oil and gas trade, demonstrating a key step of progress in exploring cross-border yuan settlements, said SHPGX. The digital yuan settlement was facilitated with the digital yuan wallet provided by the Bank of Communications.

Thousands Of Young People Regret Their ‘Gender Transitions,’ And Their Stories Are Gut-Wrenching
What have we done to these kids? What has our society put them through? This is the reality of the transgender movement: Tens of thousands of lives destroyed – and counting.
(LifeSiteNews) — Over the past several years, the mainstream press has been working overtime to debunk the testimonies of “de-transitioners” – the men and women, most of them very young, who underwent various transgender interventions, such as puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and “sex change” surgeries. Those of you who read this blog regularly will have read many of their stories; there are now so many de-transitioners speaking out that an entire genre of dissident documentaries has sprung up featuring their stories (I reviewed one of them at length here). These stories are important – they emphasize the human cost of the so-called “gender-affirming care” constantly pushed by the press and promoted by politicians such as President Biden, who insists that “sex change” surgeries for minors are a “human right.” Chloe Cole, who shared her own heartbreaking story of de-transition with Jordan Peterson some time ago and frequently testifies in favor of bans on transgender procedures, recently shared a comment posted on the Reddit forum “r/MtF”—a thread for those who “transitioned” from male to “female.” This is not a forum for de-transitioners, mind you. It is titled “Regret Everything.” Read it and weep:

The Only Lights In Gaza Now Are Israeli Bombs
Israel, under serial liar and war monger Netanyahu, has pummeled the Palestinians in Gaza and the Israeli military just cut all cell service and internet access to Gaza and has begun its most violent bombing campaign yet. The US government did all it could to enable these war crimes, crimes against humanity and yes, we’re seeing a genocide, see release below, also posted on Francis Boyle’s Substack. US enabling has been clear to me parsing the contrivances of the State Department over the last week. I knew Israel was going to massively target the Palestinians but I thought it would be next year. As I’ve been noting in recent months, the entire structure of “normalizations” with Arab states; the lack of scrutiny to Blinken and Biden’s history of warmongering; the increasingly deranged statements re Israel from various quarters, like Robert Kennedy, Jr.; the targeting of the few celebrities, like Roger Waters, pushing back against the Israeli narrative; the total lack of understanding of the history of US-Israel relations, and the complete unseriousness of “the Squad” — as well as various other factors make clear that Palestinians were incredibly vulnerable.

Tit-For-Tat’ After US Retaliates Against Iranian Targets
F-16s struck what Pentagon said were IRGC-backed militias on Friday.
According to the New York Times Saturday morning, U.S. air defenses shot down a drone new the Al Asad Air Base in western Iraq on Friday, shortly after the U.S. launched retaliatory attacks against Iranian targets in Syria. There were no injuries or damage on the ground, U.S. officials said on Friday. Pentagon officials also said that rockets were also fired into northern Syria on Friday but landed far from American troops. The Pentagon announced it conducted F-16 fighter aircraft strikes against Iranian Revolutionary Guard targets in Syria early on Friday. The targets — military supply depots that an official said were run by the IRGC — were located near Boukamal in the eastern part of the country. The official said the ammo and weapons there were the same used in a string of recent attacks against U.S. troops on bases in Iraq and Syria. According to the Associated Press: “there had been Iranian-aligned militia and IRGC personnel on the base and no civilians, but the U.S. does not have any information yet on casualties or an assessment of damage. The official would not say how many munitions were launched by the F-16s.”

Western Media ‘Cancel’ the Ukraine Conflict As Palestinian Genocide Exposes Their Lies And Fake News
The Western media saturation coverage of terrible events in Gaza over the past three weeks is driven in large part by the onerous need to divert attention from the scandal and debacle of NATO’s proxy war in Ukraine.
The horrendous violence and suffering in Gaza have dominated the global news cycle. That is not untoward given the dreadful scale of disaster where over 7,000 people, mainly civilians and nearly half of them children, have been killed over the past three weeks by Israeli bombardment and siege. Death toll numbers are obsolete within a day, such is the wanton murderous destruction by the Israeli regime. And yet Joe Biden and other Western politicians minimize this criminality by trying to cast doubt on the casualty numbers. How utterly despicable of Biden and his Western accomplices to this genocide. But what is also notable is the abrupt cancellation of Ukraine as a story by Western media. The wholesale relegation of interest in Ukraine is truly astounding. The precipitous fall-off in Western media coverage reflects how the proxy war in Ukraine was always a contrived geopolitical agenda devoid of any purported principle of Western democracy. For nearly 19 months the hostilities in Ukraine have been plastered all over Western news media. The conflict was described as the biggest in Europe since the end of the Second World War. Western governments and media outlets roundly condemned Russia for alleged aggression towards Ukraine and it was hysterically proclaimed that the whole of Europe was under threat from a would-be Russian invasion if Ukraine was not defended.

Dead Shooters Tell No Tales
Inducing “mental illness” through Electronic Warfare to create the “lone gunman” to cause mass hysteria for the gun grab agenda.
While the United States has the most firearms per capita of any nation by a wide margin, it also has a disproportionate number of ‘mass shooting’ events compared to other nations with a substantial ‘armed’ citizenry. In fact, the U.S. seems to have ALL the mass shooting events, a statistical improbability. After each mass shooting event, we hear the same voices repeat the same lies, usually reinforced based on one’s ideological agenda. They often fall into one of two broad categories. Voice 1: We have a mental health crises. Voice 2: We have too many guns. If either of these was true it stands to reason that there would be mass shootings with greater frequency in other nations with both guns and mental illness. Here are nations with significant numbers of firearms in civilian possession, that have no mass shootings.

Iranian Foreign Minister: Israel’s Security, Political Systems ‘Totally Collapsed’
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Friday that Israel’s security and political systems had been “totally collapsed” and that the only thing still functioning in the country was its “war machine.” “According to information we have inside the region, both the security and political systems of Israel have totally collapsed,” Amir Abdollahian told US media. Israeli citizens have no trust in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu anymore, and the only functional aspect in Israel at the moment is its “war machine,” the minister said, adding that it had been allegedly controlled by the United States. Meanwhile, the heads of Middle Eastern countries and groups supporting Palestine have much more serious plans than what was previously observed, Amir Abdollahian said. The top Iranian diplomat told American media he had met with a number of regional leaders as well as with “the leaders of the resistance in Lebanon and also the Palestinian groups.”

Dr. Geert Vanden Bosshe: “No mRNA-Based Injectable Product Should Ever Be Used For Immunisation Purposes”
A week ago, Dr. Jessica Rose published an article highlighting a preprint study on the DNA fragments detected in Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna’s covid “vaccines” and the relationship of these DNA fragments to adverse effects post-vaccination. Dr. Rose concluded: “In light of DNA discovered in commercial vials, as per the precautionary principle, the modified mRNA-lipid nanoparticle platform needs to have a moratorium slapped on it, and all existing vials should be confiscated and protected for testing.” Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche referred to Dr. Rose’s work and added his comments. He too concluded that mRNA injections must be stopped, permanently, and gave additional reasons. Because the mRNA “vaccines” drive viral immune escape and enhance disease; “No mRNA-based injectable product should ever be used for immunisation purposes,” he wrote.

Background Facts About Gaza
Secretary General Antonio Guterres recently said, “the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum. The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation.” The Israeli Ambassador responded that Guterres’ comments were “shocking”, “unfathomable” and “disconnected from reality”. He called for the Secretary General’s resignation. Below are some facts about Gaza to evaluate whether Guterres was accurate or not. Gaza is a tiny strip of land on the Mediterranean coast with the 5,000 year old Gaza City in the north. The entire strip is only 5 miles wide by 25 miles in length with 2.3 million Palestinians locked in this territory by Israel. It is the size of a small US city. About 80% of the people in Gaza are descendants of refugees who were expelled from their villages in what is now southern Israel in the 1948 Nakba (Catastrophe). Most Gazans have never been able to set foot outside the territory. They are born, live their lives and die in this concentration camp. At least 50% of Gaza’s work force is unemployed. Israel restricts nearly all aspects of their economy. For example, Gaza’s fishermen are prevented from going into deeper waters to fish. If they try, they are fired on by Israeli naval boats. Farmers and shepherds are also fired on as they try to eke out a living.

Piercing The Veil Of Silence Over Excess Deaths (Text and Video)
Andrew Bridgen MP speaks out
Around the world, there has been a deafening silence over excess deaths from governments and the mainstream media, who not so long ago were quite fixated on the daily death toll for Covid. On October 20th, a 30-minute adjourned debate (20 rejections later) on excess deaths in the UK House of Commons was finally secured by Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire and member of the Reclaim Party. Bridgen began his speech to the sound of erupting cheers from the full, upper public gallery, in stark contrast to the almost empty chamber below. Where were the hundreds of MPs who would normally sit shoulder to shoulder in the chamber? It appears, an increase in deaths of their constituents was not a pressing issue for them on that Friday afternoon.

New House Speaker: Russia, China, And Iran Are New Axis Of Evil
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Speaker of the House Rep. Mike Johnson said Putin cannot win in Ukraine
Representative Mike Johnson vowed to support the wars in Ukraine and Israel in an interview after becoming House Speaker. The Congressman told Sean Hannity that China, Russia, and Iran make up an “axis of evil” that poses a huge threat to the US. The Speaker presented Moscow, Beijing, and Tehran as a trilateral threat to Washington. “Big priorities in this moment right now. We have Israel being attacked, we have unrest, we have the Ukraine situation we’ve got to deal with, we have China being aggressive, we have Iran with all the meddling, and China, Russia, and Iran working together. This is a dangerous time.” he said. “Hamas and Hezbollah are proxies of Iran, and they’re tied in now with Russia and China. I mean, it is a new axis of evil. That’s how we see it, “Johnson continued, the states posed a “huge [threat to the US.] It’s it’s the biggest threat since World War II.”

Israeli Tanks Exchange Fire With Hamas Inside Gaza, Small Arms Clashes Heard, As Offensive Expands
Update(1605ET): It has become clear that the IDF has entered its next phase of battle operations, meaning a full ground assault, as heavy aerial bombardment continues. But Israeli officials in the last hours have dubbed this another “expanded” raid. The Biden White House is now making a show of wanting a more ‘humanitarian’ approach and has asked Israel to ensure only “surgical” strikes, and to allow the Strip access to aid. There’s emerging evidence of tank fire and small arms fire at the border, after the IDF confirmed that ground forces are entering the next phase of their operations. The Times Of Israel in a breaking update is reporting, “Palestinians claim Israeli tanks exchanging fire with gunmen inside Gaza.” Separately, other regional analysts reporting, “Anti-tank missiles have been fired at Israeli forces that entered Gaza.” Hamas leadership has responded with a “call to arms” for Gaza and the West Bank
