Will The Madness Of 2020 Last?

Authored by Victor Davis Hanson, op-ed via The Epoch Times,

The COVID-19 pandemic is ending with mass vaccinations. So is the national quarantine. The rioting, looting, and arson that began in the summer of 2020 is finally sputtering out.

The acrimony over the 2020 election is fading. Trump Derangement Syndrome became abstract when Donald Trump left office and was ostracized from social media.

In other words, the American people are slowly regaining their senses after the epidemic of mass hysteria that gripped the nation last year.

But many Americans wonder whether what Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the hard left wrought last year will last when the nation is no longer gripped by 2020 madness.

Teachers and academics are notorious for furious opposition to administrative bloat. For the last 50 years, administrations have proliferated while the ratio of non-teachers to teachers has skyrocketed—much to the chagrin of teachers unions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reasonable question, indeed!!

Australia Imposes 4th COVID Lockdown On Melbourne As New Cluster Found

Despite essentially cutting off all international travel in an attempt to "raise the drawbridge" and keep out COVID-19 after mostly purging it from their society, Australia is entering its fourth COVID-inspired lockdown in Melbourne, the country's second-largest city. The lockdown began Thursday and was set to remain in place for a week for Melbourne and the rest of Victoria state after a new cluster of cases was uncovered, yielding 26 new infections, including one person who was sent to intensive care, the AP reports.

Another 10K people have reportedly had some form of contact with those infected.

"Unless something changes, this will be increasingly uncontrollable," Victoria Acting Premier James Merlino said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I've visited Australia, when Mike was working there, and found the people there very forthright, and outspoken; I loved that.

But I have to ask; have these lockdowns really have been working as advertised?!?

'Defund The Police' Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Has Car Stolen By Kids In Broad Daylight

Authored by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times,

An Atlanta city councilman running for mayor, who last year supported a measure to reduce city police funding by tens of millions of dollars, had his car stolen by children on Wednesday, he and police confirmed.

Councilman Antonio Brown had been attending a ceremony in northeastern Atlanta at 12 p.m. Wednesday when several children jumped into his vehicle and drove away, he said.

“You don’t immediately think, ‘Oh, these kids are going to steal my car,’” Brown told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, referring to the incident, adding that the thieves appeared to be children, although one of them “acted as though he had a gun.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I deplore violence of any kind, there is something more than slighly karmic, in this having happened to Atlanta Councilman Brown in broad daylight!!!!!!

California Joins The Long List Of States, Companies, & Sports Leagues Bribing Americans To Get Vaccinated

With demand for COVID-19 vaccines in the US waning quickly, both individual states and the federal government are pulling out all the stops to try and convince as many American adults as possible to consent to being vaccinated. Some states have pushed promotions offering free money, free beer, and free doughnuts, among other offers. Oregon is even offering a $1 million lottery for which only the vaccinated are eligible.

As more states embrace these types of incentives, California just announced that it was hopping on the vaccination lottery bandwagon Thursday evening by offering 10 vaccinated residents the chance to win $1.5 million each, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday, while another 30 residents will win $50K cash prizes.

The program is being announced as California struggles to boost its vaccination rate (while the national rate of adults who have received at least one dose has just passed 60%).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, and I do not want to sound like an antiquated, chipped, CD on the subject, but these medications were NEVER licensed, under emergency authorization as vaccines, as we understand how a traditional vaccine works.

The Moderna and Pfizer medications were licensed as "experimental mRNA gene therapy", NOT as vaccines per se. Look at the documents:

Notification of Licensure of RNA experimental drug

Mike and I took the J & J jab, because, as derrived from double-stranded DNA, because it appeared to be closer to how we both understood how a traditional vaccine works.

I have a 91 year old mom, living in an assisted living facility, and I knew it was a matter of time before we got yelled at, in terms of having our "Vaxports" with us. We didn't know about the blood clot problem until way after we had taken the shots.

Lockheed Martin Put Executives Through Training to Unlearn ‘White Male Privilege’: Report

Authored by Brittany Bernstein via National Review (emphasis ours),

Lockheed Martin, the nation’s largest defense contractor, put top executives through a three-day training to deconstruct their “white male culture” and unlearn their “white male privilege,” according to a new report.

Thirteen employees, including a former three-star general and the vice president of production for the $1.7 trillion F-35 fighter jet program, attended a program on Zoom last year led by the consulting firm White Men As Full Diversity Partners, according to City Journal’s Christopher Rufo. The firm works to help white men “awaken together.”

The consulting firm claims that the “roots of white male culture” include traits such as “rugged individualism,” “a can-do attitude,” “hard work,” “operating from principles,” and “striving towards success” - which are “devastating” to women and minorities.

The employees were also asked to recite and internalize 50 “white privilege statements,” including:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Seriously?!?

But what about the violence and death perpetrated by the weapons Lockheed creates?!?

And forgive me, but the alleged "traits" listed above as horrific, are, in my world, traits which make good people want to lift others up, not suppress them!!

Assad Elected Through 2028 After Predictable Landslide Syria Election, Denounced By West

This week war-torn Syria took to the voting polls and as expected the result was a landslide victory for Syrian President Bashar Assad, ushering in a fourth seven-year term after he came to power in the year 2000 after the death of his father Hafez, who had been the Syrian Arab Republic's first strongman Baath ruler going back to 1971.

The results were announced from Damascus early Thursday (local time), making it official that Assad is to rule Syria through at least 2028 - having received 95% of the vote in an election widely denounced as a sham and 'illegitimate' by Western leaders, as well the anti-Assad jihadist groups in control of Idlib.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The results here were as predictable as was the Western demonization of it.

Sweden Goes From Being One Of The Safest Countries In Europe To The Second Most Dangerous

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

A new investigation finds that Sweden has gone from being one of the safest European countries 20 years ago in terms of gun crime to the second most dangerous.

The study, published by the country’s National Council on Crime Prevention (Brå), reveals that Sweden is the only country on the continent where shootings have increased substantially since the start of the century.

“Most of the fatal shootings in Sweden (around 80 percent) had a link to organised crime, according to the study, a proportion which had risen from 30 to 50 percent in the early 2000s and less than 20 percent in the 1990s. Brå also compared the proportion to other countries: around 60 percent of fatal shootings were linked to organised crime in the Netherlands, while in Finland such events were extremely rare,” reports The Local.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By not addressing the problem which is right in front of their faces, Swedish politicians appear to be bound and determined to enable the problem to get worse.

German Scientist Discovers What Causes Rare Blood Clots In Some AstraZeneca Jab Recipients

A German scientist may have found a solution to one of the biggest problems plaguing the global vaccine rollout: the rare but sometimes deadly blood clots seen in some vaccinated patients who received the AstraZeneca-Oxford jab. A team of scientists in Germany believes it has pinpointed the cause of these blood clots, which can be eliminated with a relatively easy tweak.

According to the FT, Rolf Marschalek, a professor at Goethe University in Frankfurt who has been leading studies into the rare condition since March, said his research showed the problem was related to the adenovirus vectors that both the AstraZeneca vaccine and the J&J vaccine use to deliver the genetic instructions for the spike protein of the Sars-Cov-2 virus into the body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question is, why wasn't this done before vaccinated individuals either got very ill, or died from the blood clots?!?

There is something really, horrifically wrong with these "hold harmless and indemnify" riders, codified into US law, which allow Americans to become nothing more than glorified lab rats, while no one at the top of these big pharma companies are ever held accountable for the harm their products do.

"I Don't Know Of A Bigger Story In The World" Right Now Than Ivermectin: NYTimes Best-Selling Author

So why are journalists not covering it?
Michael Capuzzo, a New York Times best-selling author , has just published an article titled “The Drug That Cracked Covid”. The 15-page article chronicles the gargantuan struggle being waged by frontline doctors on all continents to get ivermectin approved as a Covid-19 treatment, as well as the tireless efforts by reporters, media outlets and social media companies to thwart them.

Because of ivermectin, Capuzzo says, there are “hundreds of thousands, actually millions, of people around the world, from Uttar Pradesh in India to Peru to Brazil, who are living and not dying.” Yet media outlets have done all they can to “debunk” the notion that ivermectin may serve as an effective, easily accessible and affordable treatment for Covid-19. They have parroted the arguments laid out by health regulators around the world that there just isn’t enough evidence to justify its use.

Media, Democrats Use Same Exact Playbook To Convince Americans To Believe Fake News - Liberal Politicians Just Used Same Scripted Words To Push Propaganda

I am sure almost anyone reading this remembers the long list of examples, via video compilations, of dozens+ local news personalities all repeating the exact same lines, and how pundits all used specifically scripted words, as shown during the Trump admin about "bombshells," and "turning points" and the "beginning of the end," all showing that when seen together, news stations are all bought and paid for to pump propaganda.

We start with that because it has just been documented, using Democrat politicians' own social media posts, how members of the Democrat party all robotically repeat the same key words, or virtual signaling words.

For those new that have not seen those MSM clips , here is just one of many examples to show the point.

Alan Dershowitz sues Netflix over Jeffrey Epstein documentary

Alan Dershowitz sued Netflix Wednesday over a Jeffrey Epstein documentary that he says bolstered “false allegations of sexual misconduct.”

The Harvard Law professor’s defamation suit in the Southern District of Florida seeks $80 million from the streaming giant, which released the “Filthy Rich” four-part series in May 2020.

Dershowitz’s claims center on the documentary’s account of allegations by Virginia Giuffre, who is one of Epstein’s most outspoken accusers.

Giuffre claims Epstein lent her to Dershowitz for sex. Dershowitz adamantly denies he slept with any Epstein victims, including Giuffre.

Dershowitz claims the series did not feature evidence that Netflix “had agreed to present.”

Bombshell Video, Leaked Documents Detail How Facebook Censors Vaccine Facts When They Don’t Fit CDC, Big Pharma Narrative

Investigative journalist James O’Keefe from Project Veritas on Monday released a bombshell video of two Facebook insiders blowing the whistle on the tech giant’s effort to secretly censor — on a global scale — COVID vaccine questions and concerns.

The Facebook whistleblowers alleged the company is pushing an initiative to censor vaccine hesitancy on its platform.

According to new leaked documents, the social media giant uses algorithms to target users who disseminate messaging that runs counter to the company’s political ideology and vaccine narrative — even if the comments are factually accurate.

An internal memo obtained by Project Veritas explained “Vaccine Hesitancy Comment Demotion.” O’Keefe told Sean Hannity on Monday that Facebook initiated a “beta” test for the algorithm that classifies some users under two incremental tiers of what they dub “vaccine hesitancy” or a “VH Score,” and does so without the user’s knowledge.

Facebook Ends Ban on Posts Asserting Covid-19 Was Man-Made

Facebook Inc. has ended its ban on posts asserting Covid-19 was man-made or manufactured, a policy shift that reflects a deepening debate over the origins of the pandemic that was first identified in Wuhan, China, almost 18 months ago.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that three researchers from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology became sick enough in November 2019 that they sought hospital care, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report.

“In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps,” Facebook said in a statement on its website Wednesday.

Big Tech censors Palestinian advocacy around the world, while fostering surge in Jewish extremism in Israel

In a video widely shared on Twitter, Muna El-Kurd talks about the critical role social media plays in amassing international solidarity for the Palestinian cause.

“We feel social media is the only way left to get attention. Every post, tweet, video makes a difference. This is how we reach out to the masses of decent people and governments around the world” Muna El-Kurd said.

El-Kurd’s words were never more evident than on May 18 when Palestinians in the occupied territories, major Israeli cities, and diaspora communities around the world rallied together for a ‘general strike day’ to protest Israel’s rocket fire barrage of the Gaza strip that killed over 250 Palestinians sequestered in the coastal enclave. Protests in the UK, across Europe, and the US rallied thousands of demonstrators again on Saturday.

New York Times quietly changes headline on column about anti-Semitic attacks after intense backlash

The New York Times quietly updated its headline on a piece published by left-wing columnist Michelle Goldberg that initially called the recent uptick in anti-Semitic attacks "a gift to the Right."

The original headline blared, "Attacks on Jews Over Israel Are a Gift to the Right," but the new title has been shortened to, "The Crisis of Anti-Semitic Violence." The piece did not include an editor's note about the change, although it does state the original print version of the story includes the original headline.

Even without an accompanying explanation, critics came to their own conclusions about the stealth edit.

Russia Gives Google 24 Hour Ultimatum to Remove Banned Content

Russia’s internet regulator has threatened to slow down Google services in Russia if it does not comply with requests to delete content within 24 hours, Russia's state-run TASS news agency has reported.

The federal communications watchdog Roskomnadzor said Monday that Google had failed to remove 20-30% of links to content which it says are prohibited in Russia — a controversial category which includes content promoting drug use and featuring child pornography, as well as posts Russia says encourage under-18s to attend unauthorized protests.

'She was too vocal': Outrage grows over AP journalist fired for pro-Palestine views

The Associated Press news agency has faced fierce criticism from journalists and academics for sacking a newly graduated news associate over her pro-Palestinian activism while at university.

Emily Wilder, a Jewish American who graduated from Stanford University last year, started her position at AP on 3 May. Just 16 days later, she was fired.

Wilder was told that her dismissal, announced in an AP staff memo that has been widely shared online, was over a violation of the company's social media policy.

Israel-Palestine: Google says it has 'no plans' to update blurry maps of Gaza

Google has said it has no plans to update low-resolution imagery of Israel, the occupied Palestinian territories and the besieged Gaza Strip, despite a US law that banned the use of high-quality images being lifted last year.

Prior to agreeing to a ceasefire early on Friday, Israel bombed Gaza for 11 days, killing at least 248 Palestinians, including 66 children, 39 women and 17 elderly men.

The air strikes damaged schools, power lines, water, sanitation and sewage systems for hundreds of thousands of people in a territory that has been under blockade by Israel and Egypt for more than a decade.

Conflict researchers told Middle East Eye it would be difficult to understand the true damage caused by Israeli air strikes due to many open source mapping tools - including Google, Apple, and Bing - which have failed to update their maps with high-resolution imagery.

Israel-Palestine: How social media was used and abused

During the recent violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, social media has proven to be a double-edged sword.

A ceasefire came into effect at 2am on Friday morning, but not before a devastating escalation in which Israeli air strikes on Gaza killed at least 243 Palestinians, including 66 children, and rockets fired from the besieged Palestinian enclave killed 12 people in Israel. In the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, 29 Palestinians were killed.

Over the past two weeks, the digital sphere has taken centre stage. It gave a space for direct, unfiltered documentation of the realities on the ground, a means for disseminating information in many different forms and formats, and a platform for amplifying messages and gestures of solidarity.

But where there has been good use, there has also been abuse.

CNN and MSNBC Owner Bought 18 Million Comments Undermining US Democracy

Years of investigation of New York Attorney General led to a report reveals CNN, MSNBC parent companies abusing their power and manipulating millions of fake comments online.

“The Office of the New York Attorney General (OAG) found that fake comments accounted for nearly 18 million of the more than 22 million comments the FCC received during its 2017 rulemaking,” the AG’s report reads. “This type of fraud has significant consequences for our democracy. Federal and state agencies rely on public comments to set standards that govern many aspects of our lives, from public health to consumer protection to the environment, and, in this case, the rules that govern how we share and consume content over the internet. Public comments can also influence legislators and the laws they enact.”

Israel destroyed over 33 media offices in Gaza bombing

Israel's bombardment has destroyed over 33 media offices in the Gaza strip during its 11-day long offensive on the blockaded enclave, the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate said late on Friday.

"At least 33 media offices in Gaza have been destroyed, according to we have counted so far," the head of the syndicate, Nasser Abu Bakr, said in a statement.

On Friday, journalist Yousef Abu Hussein was killed in an Israeli bombing of his home in Gaza, the syndicate's statement added.

Over 170 journalists Palestinians were injured, Abu Bakr said, adding that 70 of them were wounded during the Gaza Strip bombing, and around 100 were injured following Israeli security forces' attacks on Palestinians in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. Most of the injuries in Gaza were from shrapnel from the shelling, while most in the West Bank came from tear gas, he added, without detailing the injuries' severity.

How an Israeli attack in Gaza led to the firing of an AP reporter

It started with an Israeli bomb smashing into the Associated Press offices in Gaza. It ended with an AP journalist fired for her pro-Palestinian activism while she was a college student.

The Israeli military has justified its May 15 attack on al-Jalaa Tower — which hosted numerous foreign press bureaus in Gaza — by claiming that the Palestinian militant group Hamas had offices in the building. The Associated Press has denied that claim, and Israel has not publicly provided evidence to support its side of the story.

But right-wing U.S. media and a disgruntled former AP employee have attempted to drum up justification for the airstrike by painting the American news agency as a partisan, pro-Hamas source. Their claims have been given airtime by mainstream journalists, putting the AP — rather than the foreign military that bombed it — on the defensive.

Biden: End Your Co-Belligerent Backing of Israeli War Crimes

As Senator, Vice President, and now President, your self-promoted/displayed empathy has a problem. You can’t seem to connect the Israeli military powerhouse’s occupation to the oppression and destruction of innocent Palestinian civilians, illegal seizure of Palestinian land/water, and daily violations of U.S. and international law. Israel’s military is deliberately bombing these families, the offices of American media, international medical facilities, and many local hospitals and water and electricity facilities with fighter jets and missiles made in America.

To know about what is happening daily, you do not need to rely on the evidence compiled by the U.S. mainstream media or foreign reporters on the ground in Gaza or your own intelligence agencies, just take it from the Israeli media and Israelis themselves.

Wilder was told that her dismissal, announced in an AP staff memo that has been widely shared online, was over a violation of the company’s social media policy.

Speaking to Middle East Eye, the news agency confirmed that she was dismissed for violations of AP’s social media policy, stating that the violations had occurred “during her time at AP”.

While the agency did not explain which posts in question may have violated the policy – just that she had “showed clear bias” – Wilder has said that she is certain it was the opinions she shared on Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory that led to her sacking.

Mayor of St. Louis - the murder capital of America - claims 'more cops do not prevent crime' after cutting $4million from department's budget and pledging to close a prison

The mayor of St. Louis says having more cops won't prevent crime, and she's used her first month in office to introduce controversial reforms including defunding the police.

Tishaura Jones, who is the first black woman ever elected to serve as mayor of St. Louis, approved a $4million cut in the police budget as her city experienced the highest levels of violent crime in half a century last year.

The 49-year-old Jones assumed office on April 20 after running on a platform that includes an end to St. Louis’ ‘arrest and incarcerate’ model of policing - even as her city outpaced Chicago and Detroit to become the murder capital of America for the sixth straight year last year.

'So, why not deploy someone other than police, and free up police to do the work that they were trained to do in our academy.'

Jones wants treatment, rather than punishment, for drug users, and more emphasis on social service programs to help the neighborhoods with the highest crime rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Her numbers are a bit off, if in fact this is the research she was citing:

"The Community Responder Model"

I certainly hope, for the sake of this city, that what she is proposing, can work.

I will be watching to see how well this program succeeds; where we live in Southern Indiana is not far at all from St. Louis, but wouldn't travel there at the moment, because of the crime issue.

Grammy-winning singer Dua Lipa has hit back at a full-page advert in the New York Times which attacked her, along with models Gigi and Bella Hadid, and appeared to link them with Hamas, after the stars recently made social media posts in solidarity with Palestinians.

A ceasefire came into effect in Israel and the besieged Gaza Strip on Friday, following a devastating escalation in violence in which Israeli air strikes on Gaza killed at least 243 Palestinians, including 66 children. Rockets fired from the besieged Palestinian enclave killed 12 people in Israel. In the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, 29 Palestinians were killed.

On Saturday, the Times ran a full-page attack ad directed at Lipa and the Hadid sisters following their pro-Palestinian statements.

US oil & gas infrastructure crisis may be worse than thought

The US oil and gas infrastructure crisis appears to be worse than originally thought, with the impact of the Texas storm earlier this year highlighting major problems.

Aging infrastructure is the reason for President Biden’s new national infrastructure plan. However, this comes after years of neglect which has cost the oil and gas sector billions of dollars, as well as wreaking havoc on both the environment and communities relying on vital energy supplies.

Every year, extreme weather hinders energy distribution across the US During California’s hot summers we see wildfires halting energy production from the state’s aging electrical infrastructure. This is largely because it is common practice to wait until a component fails within the system for it to be replaced, rather than preemptively investing in better structures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of thinking, with utterly no pro-active maintenance, is stupidity writ large; something very small can take down an entire system, and with it, nearly the entire energy infrastructure in this country.

US Seeks ‘Equal Security’ for Israelis and Palestinians Amid Gaza's 'Grave' Humanitarian Situation

US President Joe Biden hailed the Egypt-mediated ceasefire reached between Israel and Hamas on Thursday after 11 days of violence, underscoring that Palestinians and Israelis “equally deserve" to live safely and securely, enjoying "equal measures of freedom", while assuring Tel Aviv of "full support" to help it "replenish" its Iron Dome system.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken credited the “relentless, determined, but quiet diplomacy” of Joe Biden’s administration with brokering the unconditional ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, which came into force on 21 May.

The truce, coming after 11 days that witnessed the most deadly spiral of violence the region had seen in years, was “critical” to allow the US “to make a pivot to building something more positive”, stated Blinken, appearing on ABC News on Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a look at the images accompanying this story; this was a total, deliberate, devastation of Gaza.

Children sleeping on the streets; residences massively turned to rubble. No clean water. No medicine; no food; only chaos and destruction.

And BTW, Secretary Blinken; Egypt facilitied and negotiated the cease-fire, NOT the bloody USA, which, under Biden's watch, has become the United States... of Amnesia!!!!

And Mr. Secretary, my last comment here is, that those who do not understand the lessons of history.... are doomed to repeat them.

Lawyer Thomas Renz discusses why he and a group of lawyers have filed a temporary restraining order against various government agencies in an Alabama court to halt vaccinations of children.

Among their reasons for filing the order: FDA Emergency Use Authorization in this case is illegal; children have virtually zero chance of getting or transmitting covid; the vaccines are experimental and children should not be experimented upon, the vaccines already have an inordinately high rate of serious adverse reactions and deaths.

The hardline Israelis stoking violence in East Jerusalem

Sheikh Jarrah, Occupied East Jerusalem – A surreal, and almost bucolic, atmosphere encompassed the occupied East Jerusalem suburb of Sheikh Jarrah on a recent morning as an Israeli settler and a Palestinian sat on armchairs under an old fig tree surrounded by picturesque stone houses, discussing the ongoing violence in the presence of an Israeli TV crew.

For several weeks the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood was a pivotal point in an ongoing battle in which dozens of Palestinian families are fighting to remain in the homes they lived in for generations as they face possible forced expulsion by Israeli authorities to make way for Israeli settlers, a move illegal under international law.

There are several Israeli settler movements involved in pushing for Jewish worshippers to be allowed to pray at Al-Aqsa, reinforcing Palestinian fears that Islam’s third-holiest site could follow the route of the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron in the southern West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Restoring a temple, when it is soaking in the blood of those previously worshipping on the site at a mosque, seems rather.... draconian.

Social media campaign counters Israeli war narrative that 'both sides are suffering'

A social media campaign launched by pro-Palestinian activists is seeking to counter Israel’s war narrative that presents the situation within Israel as equally unbearable as violence in Gaza, amid growing attempts to silence Palestinian content on social media.

Videos circulating on Twitter under the hashtag #unmutepalestine have sought to show the stark contrast between the recent bloodshed in Gaza, where an 11-day airstrike campaign killed over 200 people, and living conditions inside the Israeli territories neighbouring the enclave.

Meanwhile, the UN chief Antonio Guterres said he was “deeply shocked by the continued air and artillery bombardment by the Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza.”

“If there is a hell on earth, it is the lives of children in Gaza today,” he said.

How To Possibly Start A War With Russia: Let Ukraine Join NATO

During a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy recently, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the U.S. was, “actively looking at” strengthening security cooperation with Ukraine. In Washington, White House spokesman Karine Jean-Pierre, asked if Ukraine would be invited into NATO, said the U.S. is “committed to ensuring that NATO’s door remains open to aspirants.” Ukraine, however, is not a U.S. ally, is not a member of NATO, and Washington should stop pretending they are.

Being clear on that point could keep us out of an unwanted, unnecessary, and destructive war with Russia.

Blinken: No Sign Iran Will Accept Demands for Sanction Relief

Secretary of State Tony Blinken downplayed the chances of nuclear progress with Iran on Sunday, saying the US has seen no sign Iran will comply with the assorted US demands related to sanctions relief.

To be clear, Iran was complying with the terms of the nuclear deal for years, and has said they will do so again if the US meets its sanctions relief obligations. The US has made no effort to do this, and is demanding Iran go first in meeting all US requirements before any of Iran’s needs are discussed.

All of this gives the impression that this is a deal the US doesn’t really intend to make, and is being orchestrated such that they can try to sell the non-deal as purely Iran’s fault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Israel wants, from US foreign policy, Israel gets; please don't forget that, if we start seeing mushroom clouds over Tehran in the not too distant future.

Apparently, no one in the current US or Israeli administration is at all, even noddingly familiar, with Sun Tzu's "Art of War"; should such a US/Israeli war hit Iran, these Iranians will be fighting for the existence of their homeland.

As Seeming Consensus Hardens for Cold – or Even Hot – War Against China: It Becomes Ever More Important to Fight for Peace

What a difference a presidential campaign and deadly pandemic make. Although the U.S. and People’s Republic of China long had been at odds over important issues, the bilateral relationship remained civil if not always friendly. Despite occasional spats, no one imagined a cold war, let alone actual hostilities. But 2020 changed everything. Today the possibility of conflict is on many Americans’ minds.

Scaremongering is pushing Washington toward conflict with Beijing. Observed Luo: "In recent decades, the defense industry has perfected this rhetoric to make the case for war on China. Republicans and Democrats – including both President Biden and even our most progressive members of Congress – amplify the warmongering and push for increased defense spending."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US infrastructure is rotting in place; homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets, and the only way the DC "foggy-bottomites" can think to fix it is.... more war?!?

After the debacles which have been Iraq and Afghanistan?!?

You have GOT to be flipping kidding me!!!

We don't have the weaponry; we don't have the troop strength; we don't have the manufacturing or the money to engage in any more major wars, thank you very much.

This country is broke, and broken, post-Covid, and post the wars that have failed, utterly and miserably, by any possible metric, to have achieved their alledged objectives.

Yet the antidote fo this collective and collossal failure of imagination.... is more wars?!?

Does anyone in DC recognise just how unalterably stupid that sounds, in the face of both the US's (and China's) economic challenges?!?

Newspapers Being Paid By UK Govt To Publish ‘News’ On Their Positive Covid Response

The British government is paying national newspapers including the Sun and the Daily Mail to provide positive coverage of its coronavirus response.

The following is from an article published by the Daily Mail which is part of a paid-for partnership with the UK Government:

“With Covid cases dropping and life beginning to open up once more, it’s tempting to think we’ve finally beaten the virus.

But even though we’ve got fantastic vaccines, they’re not the entire answer to the problem – not everyone has yet had the jab, and none of them currently offer 100 per cent protection.

However, we do have another brilliant weapon in our arsenal – rapid testing. Not only does this give a result in just 30 minutes, it can pick up the around one-in-three cases in which people don’t show any symptoms.

It’s vital these are detected to prevent people unknowingly spreading the virus..."

Largest US Naval Exercise In A Generation Will Prepare For "Future Conflict With China Or Russia"

The Pentagon has unveiled what's being described as "the biggest US naval exercise in a generation" to be held in late summer and which will simulate readiness for a future "possible conflict with China or Russia," according to a new report in Military.com.

Expected to include 25,000 sailors and Marines, it comes amid a broader shift in Pentagon strategy which seeks readiness for 'great power conflict' as opposed the more limited nature of 'war on terror' missions which has defined the last two decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

what about creating a foreign policy which encourages brisk trade, education of its people to be able to compete in the 21st century, and finding areas and energies in which cooperation might be possible, and have a good outcome?!?

These war games..... are a potent signal of an empire in deep decline, not in deep, forward thinking policy toward its perceived rivals.

Texas Judge Finds Biden Admin Engaged In Racial, Gender Discrimination In Pandemic Relief Program

The Biden Administration has emphasized racial and gender prioritization in a variety of programs from vaccinations to pandemic relief. One such program doled out billions to restaurants based on racial and gender priorities that were challenged in various lawsuits. A Texas judge has now blocked that effort as unconstitutional discrimination and enjoined the Administration from giving such preferential treatment based on racial and gender classifications.

Police Recruiting Plummets Ahead Of Violent Summer

Police departments across the country fail to attract new recruits after a year of social justice warriors and liberal-run city councils defunding police and the leftist media throwing the men and women in blue under the bus.

Recruiting deficits come ahead of what is expected to be another violent summer. Reduced funding and a hard time recruiting potential officers could cause overtime or burnout among law enforcement agencies, Axios reported Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not only a recruiting issue; this is a rentention issue as well, with droves of police resigning en masse because of police defunding, and a public perception that all police are inherently bad people.

"Xi Who Must Not Be Named": Ordinary Chinese Are Increasingly Afraid To Talk About Their Leader

It's a dynamic familiar to fans of the Harry Potter franchise: a villain so powerful that ordinary people fear to even mutter his name aloud. In Harry Potter world, characters use phrases like "You Know Who" to reference the series arch-villain, Voldemort. But in China (where Harry Potter is, unsurprisingly, banned), ordinary citizens (even those who genuinely support the CCP) are afraid to utter the name of President Xi Jinping, the most powerful Chinese leader since Chairman Mao.

Earlier this month, Meituan CEO Wang Xing posted a classic ninth-century poem mocking an ancient Chinese emperor. While Wang insisted the poem was an oblique jab at the company's competitors, too many people interpreted it as a jab at China's leadership. Meituan's stock subsequently slumped, wiping $2.5 billion off Wang's net worth. The company, China's largest food-delivery app, has since been caught up in the CCP's anti-trust crackdown.

US Hits Russian Entities With More Nord Stream 2 Sanctions After Removing Them For German Side

In the continuing saga of contradictory US efforts to thwart the Russia to Germany natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, the US Treasury on Friday hit Russia with more sanctions - specifically announcing that three more Russian entities and 13 vessels will come under sanction for their work on the project.

"Among the sanctioned vessels are the Akademik Cherskiy, the Vladislav Strizhov, the Yury Topchev and the Baltiyskiy Issledovatel, along with others," Treasury announced. "The sanctioned companies are Russia's Marine Rescue Service, Mortransservice, and the Samara Heat and Energy Property Fund."

Watch Postmates Robot In The Wild Of Downtown Los Angeles 

A new video that surfaced on TikTok showed what appeared to be a Postmates Serve delivery robot cruising down the sidewalk of Los Angeles, dodging a homeless man laying on the pathway, and continued on its route to deliver food to a customer.

If you had to ask us, this video is a glimpse of the dystopic future in liberal-run cities where automation displaces low-skilled workers and the homeless population continues to increase.

This is a taste of the dystopic world ahead where automation displaces millions of humans. Some of them will wind up homeless or perhaps be given generous UBI checks as technological unemployment is set to soar by the end of this decade.

Drain the Disney Copyright Swamp and Make the Public Domain Great Again

“Disney makes its money on Middle Americans who go to their theme parks, who buy their content and those people should know this corporation hates you,” the Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo told Tucker Carlson recently. “It hates your culture, and it hates the color of your skin.”

Disney laid off tens of thousands of workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As Rufo’s reporting exposed, despite those financial headwinds, the company still found a way to roll out a corporate diversity, inclusion, and equity program (commonly known by the acronym DEI, but deserving of the Freudian descriptor DIE, the fate reserved for the based in these programs, and straight white males in particular) featuring a Two Minutes Hate against white people and other race-and-sex-shaming content.

Something spooky has been happening here in Maricopa County. Weird spooky, crazy spooky, this-has-never-happened-before-in-America spooky.

“We’re in uncharted waters,” says Tammy Patrick, a former Maricopa elections official.

“It’s a clown-car farce,” says Terry Goddard, a former Democratic attorney general of Arizona.

“It’s unacceptable,” says Grant Woods, a former Republican attorney general who has since become a Democrat. “I think it should stop.”

Facebook launches 'special operations centre' to filter Israel-Palestine content

Social media giant Facebook has launched a "special operations center" helping it deal with material related to Palestine-Israel.

Reuters reported that, according to Facebook on Wednesday, the initiative launched last week.

The news comes as the Israeli bombing campaign against Gaza reached its tenth day on Wednesday, with the number of fatalities now at a minimum of 227 in the enclave, of which 64 are children.

The California-based business' VP content policy, Monika Bickert, informed journalists the centre permits quicker deletion of material breaching its policies.

She added that it also enables them to deal with "possible errors in enforcement".

Israeli radio incites killing, expulsion of Palestinian citizens

Two mainstream Israeli radio journalists last week incited violence targeting Palestinian citizens of Israel in Lydd – Lydda in English – a city renamed in Hebrew as Lod after its ethnic cleansing in 1948.

Readers should be aware that this article will report on profane and violent language, including references to sexual violence.

Asked by a Palestinian guest phoning in to their radio show on 13 May if Israeli Jews were “allowed to slaughter us,” host Yinon Magal replied, “Yes, that’s how it will end, correct.”

The guest was Sheikh Yusef al-Bazz, the city’s imam, who was explaining why Palestinian youths had come out onto the streets to protest in solidarity with their people in Jerusalem and Gaza.

He argued that the responsibility for any rioting lay with the Israeli government.

“You forgot the power the Jews hold” in Israel, Magal shouted into the microphone.

Matt Taibbi: Journalists have shifted public opinion in support of intelligence agencies

Author and journalist Matt Taibbi says that public opinion toward U.S. intelligence agencies has shifted in the past decade in large part due to a shift in media coverage away from intelligence abuses and more toward actions by members of former President Trump’s administration.

In an interview on Hill.TV’s “Rising,” Taibbi outlined his argument in one of his most recent pieces, in which he noted that some of the most pivotal pieces of journalism over the past decade included the Wikileaks release of 75,000 secret U.S. military reports that revealed abuses within the war in Afghanistan, and former NSA intelligence contractor Edward Snowden’s release of information on a widespread domestic surveillance program.

The New Nightmare Scenario for the Media

In 2006, The Nation ran a fold-out graphic that visualized the frightening state of major media concentration in America. Just 10 years after the Telecommunication Act of 1996 unleashed mergers under the specious assumption that size and concentration could improve services and spur innovation, large media companies had gobbled up book publishers, television and cable networks, radio stations, and internet ventures.

The chart resembled a pack of six octopi, each with about eight arms, holding dozens of brands each. At the center of the tendrils were News Corporation, General Electric, Disney, Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS. The graphic and accompanying articles portended a threat to democracy: A handful of rich companies would dictate what we saw, heard, read, and perhaps thought.

NYC PBS Airs Children’s Show Where “Drag Queens In Training” Learn To Swish Their Hips

Taxpayers are funding a NYC PBS show where a drag queen named “Little Miss Hot Mess” teaches “drag queens in training,” also known as children, how to shake their butts.

The program, “Let’s Learn,” is a collaboration between PBS and The New York City Department of Education aimed at children ages 3-8.

The episode “The Hips On the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish” first aired March 31.

Little Miss Hot Mess, who is allegedly a founding member of Drag Queen Story Hour, is the author of the book “The Hips On the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish.”

“I wrote this book because I wanted everyone to get to experience the magic of drag and to get a little practice shaking their hips or shimmying their shoulders to know how we can feel fabulous inside of our own bodies,” Little Miss Hot Mess told kids on the PBS show.

After singing and dancing along with the book, the drag queen said, “I think we might have some drag queens in training on our hand.”

We’ve recently seen some poor unfortunate souls take to social media using the hashtag #CriticalRaceTheory to support a proposed ban on the truth-seeking academic movement in their states, inundating our feeds with lots of unsettling “there’s not a racist bone in my body” energy. However, angry parents who’d rather their children consume wholly inaccurate history lessons than learn empathy aren’t the only ones speaking up about this ban that 12 states, currently, are considering. People on the right side of this debate are thriving on TikTok, and they’re using (true) history to do it.

ATLANTA MAYOR PUNTS CRIME FIGHTING TO SECRET COMMITTEE

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
Atlanta is engaged in a very public argument about how to fight rising crime. The mayor’s approach is to barricade the doors to the public and deliberate in secret.
The “Anti-Violence Advisory Council” named last week by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has been structured to evade Georgia’s strict Open Meetings Act rules for public observation. The only people who heard Bottoms address the 13-person working group on Wednesday were hand-picked members and city staff.

Bottoms has relied on similar working groups in the past, like one convened in the wake of protests last summer. Some of the recommendations of that group later became city policy. Former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates is the highest profile member of the group, which also includes UPS CEO Carol Tomé, a juvenile judge, a retired police chief, city council members, and community activists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mayor Bottoms seems to be doing a magnificent job of both misdirection, and in looking in absolutely all the wrong places for answers.

Mike and I live in a tiny enclave in rural Southern Indiana, where there is statistically no crime. I don't think this is an accident of demographics.

I know that I am going to catch flack for saying this, but what I do see here are stable families that provide love and structure to their kids.

And when families cannot provide this,those at-risk kids need programs which can provide at least some of this; Mayor Bottoms needs to be turning to her educators, and leaders of her faith communities, for better answers as to how to fight crime.

When kids have good mentors around them, who engage them emotionally; artistically; intellectually; and spiritually, those kids are more likely to avoid behaviours which can cause them to hurt someone, and land them in prison.

Netanyahu Says "Conquering" Gaza An Option As Touted 'Imminent' Ceasefire In Doubt

On the very day that Biden phoned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to urge de-escalation in Gaza, which the US President said would set the stage for a ceasefire with Hamas, the Israeli leader told a group of foreign ambassadors that the only solution might be to "conquer" the Gaza Strip.

"There are only two ways that you can deal with them," he said about Hamas during the Wednesday briefing held in Tel Aviv. "You can either conquer them, and that's always an open possibility, or you can deter them, and we are engaged right now in forceful deterrence, but I have to say we don't rule out anything."

He made the comments Wednesday, while separately he had received the call from President Biden wherein he was told Israel must de-escalate its military campaign "today". By all accounts that did not appear to happen as the death toll into Thursday topped 230, with over 1,700 wounded. On the Israeli side 12 of its civilians have died from rocket fire out of Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, just what Netanyahu means by "conquering Gaza"?!?

Just how many Gazans will need to be assassinated, in order for that to happen, for Netanyahu?!?

Dominion Responds After Pennsylvania Election Officials Report "Coding Error" With Voting Machines

Authored by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Election officials in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, reported issues with voting equipment at polling places on Tuesday, prompting a response from Dominion Voting Systems saying that there was a ballot screen error regarding the viewing screen’s header.

Dominion Voting Systems told The Epoch Times that “Luzerne County’s election director has confirmed that there is a ballot screen error that is confined to the header on the viewing screen of the machine, and that all ballots are printing correctly with the Republican header and the Republican primary election races.”

The firm then noted that Luzerne County officials have assured the public that “all ballots will be correctly counted,” adding: “We regret any confusion this has caused.”

Sorry, Dominion, but the optics on this look pretty damned vile; your credibility has been well and truly flushed; and it appears obvious to any thinking human being, what is being allowed to happen here and why.

Mob Violence Against Palestinians in Israel Is Fueled by Groups on WhatsApp

Last Wednesday, a message appeared in a new WhatsApp channel called “Death to the Arabs.” The message urged Israelis to join a mass street brawl against Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Within hours, dozens of other new WhatsApp groups popped up with variations of the same name and message. The groups soon organized a 6 p.m. start time for a clash in Bat Yam, a town on Israel’s coast.

“Together we organize and together we act,” read a message in one of the WhatsApp groups. “Tell your friends to join the group, because here we know how to defend Jewish honor.”

That evening, live scenes aired of black-clad Israelis smashing car windows and roaming the streets of Bat Yam. The mob pulled one man they presumed to be Arab from his car and beat him unconscious. He was hospitalized in serious condition.

The so-called ‘main stream’ corporate media have been attacking Bill Gates. One might even say he’s being pushed under the bus. That bus contains Jeffrey Epstein and his criminal behavior. It seems Gates spent far more time with the convicted pedophile than he earlier claimed. It’s said to be the main reason Melinda Gates is divorcing him.

That’s the ‘official’ story we’re told to believe. If true, why didn’t the establishment media go after Gates sooner? Instead, they kept his name free from scandal and promoted him as the world’s greatest benefactor to humanity. Especially when it came to his vaccine promotion. Something more has happened other than his divorce.

Accused Russiagate 'Spy' Kilimnik Speaks -- and Evidence Backs His 'No Collusion' Account

The man cast as a linchpin of debunked Trump-Russia collusion theories is breaking his silence to vigorously dispute the U.S. government’s effort to brand him a Russian spy and put him behind bars.

In an exclusive interview with RealClearInvestigations, Konstantin Kilimnik stated, "I have no relationship whatsoever to any intelligence services, be they Russian or Ukrainian or American, or anyone else."

Kilimnik, a longtime employee of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, spoke out in response to an explosive Treasury Department statement declaring that he had "provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy" during the 2016 election. That press release, which announced an array of sanctions on Russian nationals last month, also alleged that Kilimnik is a "known Russian Intelligence Services agent implementing influence operations on their behalf."

MICHELLE OBAMA PLAYED BY TRANSGENDER MODEL CONNIE FLEMING ON CANDY MAGAZINE COVER

Candy magazine, a new-ish publication devoted to covering “transversal style,” has already put James Franco, Chloe Sevigny and Andrej Pejic into drag on its iconic covers. (They also had that epic Tilda Swinton photo shoot.)

But for the magazine’s fifth issue, publisher Luis Venegas headed to the White House for inspiration: transgender model Connie Fleming stars as a Michelle Obama lookalike on the cover.

Photographed by Danielle Levitt and styled by none other than Brad Goreski, the shoot styles Fleming as a striking lookalike of the the first lady — in typical first lady wear — with the headline “The Candydate.” In one image, Fleming sports pearls and rests her hand on a Bible; in another, she clutches a flag and sports some very FLOTUS-y statement jewelry.

Venegas told Dazed Digital that he was inspired by the idea that a “black, transsexual woman” could someday be president of the United States:

“Today we are Nazis,” says member of Israeli Jewish extremist group

Israeli Jewish extremists used instant messaging services to organize armed militias to attack Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Voice messages, texts and other communications indicate they coordinated attacks in cities where Palestinians live in close proximity to Jews – including Haifa, Bat Yam and Tiberias in the north, and Ramla and Lydd – Lod in Hebrew – in the center, to Beersheba in southern Israel.

Settlers from Jewish-only colonies in the occupied West Bank also joined the coordinated attacks, with the apparent knowledge and collusion of Israeli officials.

They communicated via WhatsApp and Telegram, as well as Facebook groups.

In many cases, extremist organizers said they relied on either the active or passive support of Israeli authorities.

Israeli research organizations Fake Reporter and HaBloc intercepted messages from some of those groups and reported what they found to Israeli police as a “ticking time-bomb.”

Will Biden Stay in Bibi’s Pocket?

How about now? Will he see President Biden as a wimp, with Biden’s mealy-mouthed comment to Netanyahu earlier today that Biden "expects to see a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire" in Gaza.

If past is precedent, Netanyahu’s likely response will be a half-polite, "Joe, please take that and shove it … and oh, by the way, I meant to thank you for your proposed sale of $735 million-worth of smart bombs a couple of weeks ago. It came at just the right time for me."

Here’s Why

Netanyahu thought the camera/sound was off 20 years ago, when he spoke with unspeakable candor to a small private group, explaining, "America is a thing that can be easily moved … moved in the right direction. They [Americans] will not bother us."

Translation (based on the subtitles) follows, with Netanyahu in bold.

"The Arabs now are preparing a campaign [war] of terror, and they think that this will break us.

"The main thing is, first and foremost, to hit them hard.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu is playing Biden for a complete fool; any attack against Iran (and I am sure that the IDF and MOSSAD have several competing scenarios for making this happen,) will potentially lead to a broader regional war, which could well translate into a world war right now.

What is behind Israel’s targeting of prominent buildings in Gaza?

Israel’s attacks on Gaza’s civilian buildings are an attempt to demoralise Palestinians and weaken their resolve.

Rami Aldraimli watched in disbelief as the building he had worked in for more than 20 years came crashing down.

Following a missile “warning”, Israeli fighter jets late on Tuesday afternoon bombed al-Awqaf building, the latest structure to be targeted by Israel during its relentless 10-day offensive on the besieged Gaza Strip.

The five-storey building in western Gaza City housed a number of offices, including of Mashareq, one of Gaza’s oldest and most prominent media production firms.

“It wasn’t just a company,” Aldraimli, Mashareq’s 43-year-old executive director, said. “It’s a dream I’ve been working on, building it up until we had 60 employees.”

Translation: The bombing of the building that includes the Mashareq Advertising Company and a stationery shop, in a move to destroy the Palestinian economy.

Ex-Israeli Pilot: ‘Our Army Is a Terrorist Organisation Run by War Criminals’

A former Israeli Air Force pilot, Yonatan Shapira, has described the Israeli government and army as “terrorist organisations” run by “war criminals.”

Captain Shapira who had resigned from the Israeli army in 2003 at the height of the Palestinian Second Intifada explained in an exclusive interview with Anadolu News Agency why he realized after joining the army that he was “part of a terrorist organisation”.

I realised during the Second Intifada what the Israeli Air Force and Israeli military are doing are war crimes, terrorising a population of millions of Palestinians. When I realised that, I decided to not just leave but to organise other pilots that will publicly refuse to take part in these crimes, he said.

“As a child in Israel, you are being brought up in very strong Zionist militaristic education. You don’t know almost anything about Palestine, you don’t know about the 1948 Nakba, you don’t know about ongoing oppression,” Shapira said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel may well be creating a 3rd intifada, but this time.... it may be a little more difficult to "control", no matter how many women, children, and the fragile medically elderly the IDF assassinates with impunity.
