US signs military pact with Georgia, condemns Russia

The United States has signed a military pact with Georgia which will last for six years, and condemned “Russia's ongoing occupation of Georgia.”

Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin signed the agreement with Georgian Defense Minister Junasher Burchuladze on Monday, a move that is likely to increase tensions between Washington and Moscow.

The deal will replace a similar bilateral military pact which is set to expire at the end of the year.

“This represents an important new phase in security cooperation between our two countries," Austin said while speaking at the Ministry of Defense in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi.

The pact is meant to help Georgia, a former Soviet state, “further develop its defense capacity and advance its Euro-Atlantic aspirations,” a Defense Department statement said which was released after the signing ceremony.

British propaganda campaign incited mass slaughter of communists in Indonesia in 1960s, declassified papers reveal

British spies played a part in the mass murder of Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI) members in the 1960s, urging locals, including army generals, to “cut out” the “communist cancer,” declassified papers have revealed.
The Indonesian Army’s brutal clampdown on the PKI in 1965 and 1966 is considered to be one of the worst mass murders of the 20th century. Between 500,000 and three million supporters of the Communist Party were slaughtered, according to various estimations.

Declassified Foreign Office documents, which were recently released by Britain’s National Archives and seen by The Guardian newspaper, indicate that the UK isn’t without fault in those shocking events.

The British Foreign Office had always denied the country’s involvement in the brutal clampdown on those blamed of communist links in Indonesia.

Third day of clashes in Bangladash over Koran 'desecration'

The protests began on Wednesday after footage emerged of a Koran being placed on the knee of a god during celebrations for the Hindu festival of Durga Puja. Hindus make up 10 percent of the population.

At least four people were killed late Wednesday when police opened fire on a crowd of around 500 people attacking a Hindu temple in Hajiganj, one of several towns hit by the disturbances.

Two Hindus were also killed and some 150 others were injured across the country, community leader Gobinda Chandra Pramanik told AFP, with at least 80 makeshift temples attacked. Authorities did not confirm the toll.

Myanmar bars Suu Kyi’s lawyer from talking about her cases

The main lawyer for Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who is being tried on multiple criminal charges, said late Thursday he has been issued a gag order barring him from talking about her cases.

Lawyer Khin Maung Zaw wrote on his Facebook page that the action against him was taken under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, a broadly worded statute from British colonial times intended to deal with emergency situations that threaten public safety.

“My mouth is under 144,“ is how he explained his situation. The law is normally used to to restrict public gatherings and impose curfews, and has been employed that way by the military after it ousted Suu Kyi’s elected government in February.

Ankara’s Penetration into Central Asia Threatens to Bring Pan-Turkic Extremism to Russia’s Border

The Central Asia region for thousands of years has been the location of endless conflict and Great Power competition as it is a crossroads for East-West trade routes. Scythians, Huns and various tribes of Turks and Mongols, among a plethora of other groups, have swept across the region. In the 19th century, Central Asia hosted the so-called Great Game between the British and Russian Empires, and, over the last two decades, the U.S. made a serious attempt to establish a permanent presence. However, just as the U.S. makes its withdrawal from Afghanistan, Ankara is making serious attempts to supplant the dominant Russian and Chinese influences in the region.

Australia building PERMANENT covid quarantine camps for “ongoing operations”

Even though the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is pretty much already over, at least for the unvaccinated, Australia is busily constructing new “quarantine” camps that the government there says will be needed next year to house people “who have not had access to vaccination.”

In order to maintain “ongoing operations” for the plandemic, Australian officials are funding the construction of massive compounds, one of which reportedly has 1,000 beds and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2022.

“At this stage, the cabins will be used by domestic travelers returning from COVID hotspots,” a report about the quarantine facility being erected at the Wellcamp Airport outside of Toowoomba states.

‘A living hell’: Churches, clergy targeted by Myanmar military

Last month, Myanmar soldiers gunned down Cung Biak Hum, a 31-year-old Baptist pastor, while he rushed to help put out a fire caused by military shelling. As his town of Thantlang in Myanmar’s northwestern Chin State went up in flames, soldiers sawed off the pastor’s finger and stole his wedding ring.

“The killing of Cung Biak Hum and mutilation of his finger demonstrate the extent of disrespect and brutality with which [Myanmar military] soldiers are conducting themselves in their ongoing war against the people,” Salai Za Uk Ling, deputy director of the Chin Human Rights Organisation, told Al Jazeera.

BOMBSHELL: Australia’s Gladys Berejiklian was bribed, blackmailed by Big Pharma to impose covid “vaccine” mandate

Berejiklian, who recently resigned from her post, was reportedly blackmailed by Big Pharma to force the “vaccines” on Aussies, otherwise the pharmaceutical drug cartels were going to charge her in a corruption probe.

Hoping to save herself from the ire of the drug kingpins, Berejiklian complied with their demands, only to eventually get outed anyway. Now, the woman has found herself in the global spotlight alongside other treasonous criminals like Tony Fauci and Francis Collins.

Berejiklian infamous told residents of Sydney just prior to her resignation “that if they don’t take the covid jab, they face total social isolation indefinitely after the stay-at-home order ends in December.”

U.N. Fears 'Imminent Attack' in Myanmar After Army Build-Up

The United Nations human rights office said on Friday it is concerned the military in Myanmar could be preparing an imminent attack aimed at its opponents amid a build-up of heavy weapons and troops in areas of the country where the internet has also been shut down.

Ravina Shamdasani, U.N. human rights spokeswoman, said that it had documented intensifying attacks by the army in the past month in Chin state and other areas, with killings and burning of houses, in an apparent attempt to seek out armed resistance.

"What has happened now over the past few days, we have seen a real reinforcement, a substantial deployment of heavy weapons and troops in these areas," Shamdasani told a U.N. briefing in Geneva, referring to townships in Chin, Sagaing and Magway.

Russia Pledges Military Defense Of Tajikistan In Case Of Incursion From Afghanistan

Since the start of the August rapid evacuation of US forces from Kabul, Russia has been flexing its military might in central Asia - in particular with military drills with its regional ally Tajikistan, geared toward protecting the porous border as Afghans fled the Taliban, which included national Afghan troops abandoning their posts in droves - which saw them also flee into other neighboring countries like Uzbekistan.

Reuters reports based on official statements that Moscow is now pledging to defend Tajikistan in the instance of a spillover in fighting or direct threats from terrorists launching strikes out of Afghanistan. Over the past weeks there have been reports that both Taliban and Tajik forces were engaged in troop build-ups on either side of the over 840-mile long border.

Big Pharma payola scandal erupts in Australia, takes down six corrupt officials and Australian Premier Berejiklian

More than half a dozen staff members of New South Wales, Australia Premier Gladys Berejiklian have resigned in shame over their involvement in a massive Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) bribery scheme.

Berejiklian and her comrades reportedly took tens of millions of dollars from Big Pharma in exchange for pushing lockdowns and now “vaccines,” destroying countless lives and businesses in the process.

According to a former Australian member of parliament (MP), Pfizer and AstraZeneca both paid lobbyists to push vaccine mandates on the people, ensuring a steady stream of ill-gotten profits.

Rising tensions between Azerbaijan and Iran spark fears of a conflict that would be an Israeli-US proxy war against Tehran

Tensions are running high as Iran holds war games along its northern border, warning it won’t tolerate its neighbour providing a safe haven for the “anti-security activities of the fake Zionist regime.”
Iranian war games held along its northern border with Azerbaijan, leading to Baku threatening military deployment in retaliation, has sparked fear of war between the two countries.

But any such war would not end up being won by Tehran or Baku, but rather the United States and Israel, who would likely seize such an opportunity to fuel a Syria-style proxy war against the Islamic Republic.

'Utterly outrageous' for ABC to use kids to push an 'ideology'

CLP Senate Candidate Jacinta Price says it is “disgusting” for the ABC to use children in their new documentary on school racism.

It comes as the ABC released a documentary show called ‘The School That Tried to End Racism’, which teaches children to view themselves and Australia through the prism of race.

“It’s utterly outrageous and it’s disgusting to use children in this way, to push an ideology that adults have decided to come up with themselves,” Ms Price told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“It’s not based on research, scientific research, it’s complete ideology and I’m just absolutely gobsmacked that our children are being used in this way.

“I think it’s utterly ridiculous that this nonsense is being pushed onto our kids, I mean shame on the ABC for doing this to that group of kids.

“They just can’t continue on this road; they need to be accountable for what they’re doing.”

Russia insists on inadmissibility of US military presence in Central Asia — diplomat

Russia’s position on the inadmissibility of the United States’ military presence in Central Asian countries remains unchanged, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Thursday.

"There isn’t the slightest change in our position that the US presence in Central Asian countries is inadmissible in any format," he stressed. "It is a final position with no elements of flexibility and it has been explained to the Americans more than once."

According to the Russian diplomat, US colleagues are either opting for fake news in a hope to make Russia change its position, or "are indulging in wishful thinking, or are tending to hear in Moscow’s signals only what sounds sweet to them."

"This issue is being hyped in the United States, not without the participation of certain mass media," he added.

How US Techno-nationalism Spawned a Global Electronic Kraken

By Mathew Maavak

We may have enjoyed a more equitable and decentralized international system today if not for US intervention on behalf of Microsoft. Big Tech thereafter ushered in a series of techno-social function creeps at the expense of fundamental freedoms.

It was the 1980s. A resurgent Japan was colonizing one civilian market after another through sheer diligence and ingenuity. In terms of quantity and quality, Japanese manufacturers were bankrupting a variety of industrial strongholds, ranging from Swiss watchmakers to US auto giants to Indian textile plants. Whether they be school stationeries, household appliances or nylon saris, quality-with-affordability could only be Made in Japan. America was particularly in deep trouble...

Press review: Congress takes aim at Russian debt market and why the US wants Kazakhstan

A new bill has been submitted to the US House of Representatives. Apart from imposing restrictions on individuals, it also bans American investors from purchasing new issues of Russian bonds in the secondary market, Izvestia writes.

Talk about American sanctions against Russia's sovereign debt had been going on for several years before restrictions were actually introduced following the ascent of Joe Biden and his administration to the White House, who prohibited US financial institutions from participating in the primary market for the Russian sovereign debt in April. Following the ban, foreign investors started to reduce their portfolios of Russian government bonds, but the trend reversed in September and foreign investment in the sector grew by 20%. Foreign investors flocked to the Russian financial market largely out of confidence that high tensions between Moscow and Washington were over and there wouldn’t be any harsher sanctions. However, doubts have now returned.

Eurasia Takes Shape: How the SCO Just Flipped the World Order

The two defining moments of the historic 20th anniversary Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Dushanbe, Tajikistan had to come from the keynote speeches of – who else – the leaders of the Russia-China strategic partnership.

Xi Jinping: “Today we will launch procedures to admit Iran as a full member of the SCO.”

Vladimir Putin: “I would like to highlight the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed today between the SCO Secretariat and the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is clearly designed to further Russia’s idea of establishing a Greater Eurasia Partnership covering the SCO, the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union), ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and China’s Belt and Road initiative (BRI).”

In short, over the weekend, Iran was enshrined in its rightful, prime Eurasian role, and all Eurasian integration paths converged toward a new global geopolitical – and geoeconomic – paradigm, with a sonic boom bound to echo for the rest of the century.

While Democrats Try To 'Kill Coal' In US, Asia Heads In The Opposite Direction

Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration are working towards an ambitious goal of eliminating coal-fired electricity and 'decarbonize' the US electric grid by 2035.

To meet such an aggressive deadline, House Democrats unveiled a $150 billion 'clean electricity' program to incentivize utility companies to phase out fossil fuels for clean energy. The Clean Electricity Performance Program, or CEPP, would reward utility that boost their percentage of electricity supplied to the grid from green sources - such as solar, wind and hydro, between 2023 and 2030.

S&P Global explains more about the program:

Nurse claims fully vaccinated Covid-19 patients are being treated with Ivermectin whilst the unvaccinated are being put on ventilators

A nurse of 40 years has claimed that fully vaccinated Covid-19 patients are being treated in hospital with Ivermectin, whilst unvaccinated Covid-19 patients are being put on ventilators.

The claim was made during a freedom protest in Australia in which the nurse made a speech to those attending.

Ivermectin is a common drug used to treat parasites but evidence suggests it is successful at treating the alleged Covid-19 disease. The drug was widely used across India and seemed to be successful in reducing deaths per million people by a significant amount.

However, when India changed tack and introduced the Covid-19 vaccine, alleged Covid-19 deaths very quickly began to rise again.

Australia’s medicines regulator has banned general practitioners from prescribing Ivermectin tablets to treat the alleged Covid-19 disease, which means the claims made by the nurse of 40 years are highly controversial if true.

Tajikistan Summons US Ambassador, Angry Over Biden's 9/11 Remarks

The central Asian country of Tajikistan, which shares the entirety of its southern border with Afghanistan, has summoned the US ambassador on Tuesday to mount protest over remarks by President Joe Biden during weekend 9/11 anniversary commemoration events.

"A verbal note of protest was conveyed to the US Ambassador in connection with the statements by the President of the United States of America Mr. Joe Biden during his visit to a fire station in Pennsylvania,” Tajikistan's Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "The verbal note stated that such statements do not correspond to the spirit of friendly relations and partnership."

The US ambassador in residence in Dushanbe - the capital of Tajikistan - John Mark Pommersheim, was summoned on Tuesday. He was informed that the country was offended by Biden's reference to Tajiks also "hanging in the well of the wheel" if the US had landed a large C-130 transport plane in Tajikistan.

Daniel Andrews hit with multibillion-dollar class action

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is facing a multibillion-dollar class action suit from businesses affected by the stage four COVID-19 lockdown.

The plaintiffs are claiming failures in the hotel quarantine system led to the draconian restrictions which have brought businesses to a standstill.

Damian Scattini, partner at Sydney-based Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan will lead the class action.

Mr Scattini said that he served the Victorian government with an open class action lawsuit on 21 August, after his office was approached by businesses across the spectrum – from pubs, gyms, retail, sporting facilities and professional services – who have been poleaxed by the second lockdown.

US Pledges "Ironclad" Commitment To Asian Allies After N.Korean 'Strategic' Long-Range Missile Test

The Pentagon has expressed "ironclad" support to regional US allies Japan and South Korea after weekend long-range cruise missile launches by North Korea - the first in six months.

State media described the launches as testing "newly-developed long-range cruise missiles" which flew 1,500 kilometers over North Korean territory and were successful in hitting their targets, according to Monday statements. The missiles were further described as capable of evading anti-air defenses, though it was left unspecified how many were actually launched.

Combination of photos issued by the North Korean government on Monday.
US official VOA News noted that "Pictures posted in North Korean state media showed one of the cruise missiles being fired from a five-canister, road-mobile launcher that appeared to be parked on a highway."

Russia Sends Armoured Vehicles, Military Equipment to Tajikistan

Russia sent Tajikistan 12 armoured vehicles and an array of military equipment, its defence ministry said on Saturday, as Moscow looks to shore up its Central Asian ally that neighbours Afghanistan.

Moscow has held military exercises in Tajikistan and expanded hardware at its military base there, its biggest in a foreign country, since the U.S. withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and the Taliban's lightning takeover.

Russia is worried about the potential for fallout in the wider region and the possibility of Islamist militants infiltrating Central Asia, which Moscow sees as its southern defensive buffer.

"Against the backdrop of growing instability near Tajikistan's southern border, we are working together to ensure the security of our states," said Major General Yevgeny Tsindyaikin in a defence ministry statement.

Top Container Ports In Asia Brace For Impact Of Powerful Typhoon

A powerful typhoon is expected to impact Taiwan and China this weekend. It may strain global supply chains even further due to the possibility of port disruptions and other logistical issues that would stem from storm damage.

Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau said Typhoon Chanthu is north of the Philippines Friday as it closes in on Taiwan and the Chinese coast. In the path of the storm are major containerized ports and factories. The intensity of the storm is a significant concern.

The storm is rated as a category four typhoon, one level below a super typhoon, with maximum sustained winds of around 130 mph and gusts up to 160 mph. Taiwan is expected to feel the brunt of the storm late Saturday, then China on Sunday.

'Get on the vaccines’ if you want to ‘get on the beers’: Victoria premier urges Australians to get AstraZeneca Covid jab

The premier of Australia’s state of Victoria has taken to social media to urge fellow citizens to leave behind their skepticism of the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine if they want lockdowns to end.

Daniel Andrews posted a cartoon diagram on Twitter urging citizens to get jabbed with the AstraZeneca vaccine, which some are unwilling to take because of rare blood-clotting side effects.

The state premier, a member of the Labor Party, posted the diagram on Friday, captioning it “If you want to get on the beers, we've all got to get on the vaccines.”

Monica Smit arrested for advocating freedom; she refuses bail; spread her story far and wide; Australia is ruled by crime bosses Sep 2 by Jon Rappoport

Adam Crabb, Australian journalist (The Crazz Files): “…the Australian government is now plunging the country into the darkest period in its history. The coronavirus is not the cause of this darkness. The Regime’s use of the coronavirus as a pretext to establish a totalitarian system of control over the Australian people is the cause of this darkness.”

An Australian woman advocated freedom. Freedom from lockdowns and mandates. So she was criticized on social media? She was censored?

She was ARRESTED.

Her name is Monica Smit. She’s sitting in jail.

The fascist authorities agreed to release her on bail, if she renounced everything she stood for.

Does that sound familiar? The USSR. Show trials. The massive power of the State coming down on an individual.

Monica Smit refused the deal.

She clings to her faith, her courage, her vision, her ideals, against the scum of the earth.

The very least we can do is spread her story far and wide.

Sri Lankan government officials on Wednesday raided private warehouses to seize thousands of tonnes of sugar, a day after a state of emergency was declared over food shortages caused by a currency crisis.

A military officer put in charge of efforts to bolster food stocks said at least 13,000 tonnes of white and brown sugar were found in the raids.

"The objective is to prevent hoarding," Major General Senarath Niwunhella, who was named commissioner general of essential services on Tuesday, told AFP.

He denied the sugar was being confiscated.

"The government will pay a reasonable price to the importers based on the valuations provided to customs."

Shia Crescent and the Rise of Taliban

On September 20, 2001, as he fired the ‘War on Terror’ salvo, President George W Bush, in his address to the US Congress, said: “Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.”

Twenty years on, not only has the so-called war on terror wreaked havoc in the Middle-East, but has also led to an uncertain security situation in South Asia and its neighbourhood, as the US has all but completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan.

As we see it today, the ‘War on Terror’ has given Iran, America’s arch enemy in the Middle-East, an extensive leverage in the region, especially across what has come to be known as the ‘Shia Crescent’. This is something that the Ayatollahs couldn’t even have dreamt of with Saddam Hussein in power.

‘Enough’: Australian newspaper The Age comes out against extended lockdown in fiery editorial

Australia’s The Age newspaper has sparked fresh division in Victoria after publishing an extensive editorial article harshly criticizing the state government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and recent lockdown extensions.

On Wednesday, the paper published an editorial headlined “Victoria can’t go on like this.” The piece condemned Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews and the Labor State Government over its extension of harsh lockdown measures and a lack of evidence to back them up.

The restrictions were maintained despite officials conceding it was no longer possible to achieve zero cases in the state – an ambitious pursuit championed by Andrews.

“There comes a point, and The Age believes that point has been reached, where the damage caused by the harshest and longest lockdowns in the country needs to be more seriously factored in,” the editorial reads.

The man is obviously not sick and looks like he works out at the gym for several hours a day – you can watch a video of him below.

NO QUALITY CONTROL: Three lots of Moderna’s covid “vaccine” pulled from Japan for stainless steel contamination

Several more lots of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine” from Moderna have been recalled in Japan after authorities there identified the presence of stainless steel inside the vials.

The particulates were identified not long after Japanese officials found other contaminants, including strange “black substances,” inside several other batches of Moderna jabs, prompting the government to take action.

Numerous prefectures have stopped administering the Moderna jab altogether while others are trying to root out just those vaccine lots that are believed to contain contamination.

Incredibly, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Moderna’s Japanese pharmaceutical partner, issued a statement claiming that because stainless steel is routinely used in heart valves, joint replacements, and metal sutures and staples that it is no big deal for vaccines to contain metal particulate contamination.

Re-centering Central Asia: China’s “New Great Game” in the old Eurasian Heartland

China’s President Xi Jinping’s Central Asian tour in fall 2013 marked Beijing’s unprecedented (re)turn to Central Asia as a lynchpin of the “Silk Road Economic Belt” of the globally ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). China’s BRI positions Central Asia as the crucial nexus for the cross-regional long-distance loops of trade, investment, and infrastructure development. By revisiting the classical geopolitical theory about the original Eurasian Heartland and its contemporary offshoots, we extract some insights for understanding the new China-Central Asia transboundary regional nexus. In a double-pronged empirical analysis of China’s development strategies regarding Central Asia, we examine: (1) the construction of oil and gas pipelines from Central Asia to transmit energy all the way to China’s east coast, and (2) the launch and expansion of the Eurasian Railroad to transport goods from China’s manufacturing bases in both coastal and inland regions to Europe and Central Asia.

Manufacturing Justification for the NATO Takeover of Central Asia–Smashing Greater Central Asia – (Part One)

After ten years of raging warfare in Afghanistan, watching the fight slowly ooze across the invisible Durand Line into Pakistan, we have the right to wonder whether the war is any closer to ending today? It is perfectly reasonable to suspect that if we were allowed to know the truth we would understand that the American government has no plans to end the war in the near future. Trying to make sense of relentless Western news reports on the disaster of the impending American “withdrawal from Afghanistan,” even though other reports reveal that super-bases have been constructed, leaveing most observers completely bewildered about whether the Afgan war is ending or expanding. The only thing that is obvious is that there is to be no “withdrawal” from Afghanistan, at least not from the northern half of the country (SEE: Plan B In Afghanistan).

Harris Calls on Vietnam to Join US Against China’s ‘Bullying’

Vice President Kamala Harris continued her hawkish rhetoric against China on Wednesday while meeting with Vietnamese leaders in Hanoi. Harris urged Vietnam to join the US in opposing what she called Beijing’s “bullying” in the South China Sea.

“We need to find ways to pressure and raise the pressure, frankly, on Beijing to abide by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and to challenge its bullying and excessive maritime claims,” Harris said in a meeting with Vietnam’s President Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, known as UNCLOS, is an international treaty that defines the rights of nations to territorial waters. In July 2020, Washington formally rejected most of Beijing’s claims to the South China Sea under the framework of UNCLOS, although the US has never ratified the treaty and is not a party to it.

Putin Reportedly Rebuffed Biden’s Push to Put US Troops in Central Asia Amid Afghan Withdrawal

After announcing plans to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan by September this spring, the Biden administration sent out diplomatic feelers to the nations of Central Asia to discuss whether the latter might be interested in hosting American soldiers.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told US President Joe Biden flat out at their Geneva summit in June that Moscow would be opposed to the deployment of US forces in Central Asia, the Wall Street Journal has reported, citing senior US and Russian officials said to be familiar with the matter.

According to the paper’s sources, Putin told Biden at their 16 June meeting that Russia would reject "any US military role" in Central Asia and that China would also oppose any such plans. One official said that Putin "emphasised the point" of keeping US forces out of the region even though Biden "didn’t seek Mr. Putin’s support" on the matter.

What Can We Learn About Covid Tyranny From Australia And Afghanistan?

Op-Ed by Brandon Smith

Despotic people tend to telegraph their future actions like inexperienced fighters tend to telegraph their punches; it’s not as if the intentions of totalitarians are obscured or hard to predict. In some cases they may even believe that they can be as obvious as they wish because they assume no one will ever try to stop them. They’ve been destroying lives for so long they adopt a sense of superiority, as if they are untouchable.

Even with draconian lockdowns and travel restrictions, Australia’s covid “cases” are now skyrocketing… is the science WRONG?

Something terrifying is happening in Australia. Officers of the law are dutifully carrying out the plans of the globalists and enforcing insidious rules that violate the very people they are supposed to serve. Australia has turned into a prison camp, with draconian lockdowns, bodily requirements and travel restrictions. Medical martial law has become a normal way of life, and Australians are being held down until the majority are inoculated with bioweapon vaccine experiments.

Australian governments continue to prescribe tyranny for endemic infections, and the result is always the same. As more people are locked up, the case numbers skyrocket. Australians have followed the science to a tee, but the population is getting sicker, more depressed and more violent than ever before.

Is the science wrong? Of course, it is.

Singapore PM Lee backs US as ‘guarantor’ of security in Asia as Harris grilled over Afghanistan chaos

US Vice-President Kamala Harris on Monday began her two-nation tour of Asia by fielding a barrage of questions about Washington’s recent withdrawal from Afghanistan and whether its security commitments in the region can be trusted.

Speaking in Singapore alongside Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Harris demurred when asked about the withdrawal of US forces, saying instead that Washington was “singularly” focused on the evacuation of US and Afghan citizens after Taliban militants seized control of the country.

Harris landed in Singapore on Sunday and is scheduled to deliver a major foreign policy address on Tuesday before flying to Vietnam. After meetings on Monday with Lee and his key ministers, Harris emphasised the US commitment to the region, which she said would “in large part … dictate the future of our world”.

That's pretty arrogant, considering the US just got its ass handed to it in Afghanistan!

Russia "Ready" To Ship Weapons To Central Asian Allies To Prevent Terrorists From Flooding Region

update (10:03ET): Days ago one particularly apt NY Times headline captured the growing concern and view from Washington: "With Afghan Collapse, Moscow Takes Charge in Central Asia."

Over the weekend Putin announced Russia has shut its borders to Afghans now pouring out of the country amid the US exit and ongoing evacuation debacle, further castigating US and European leaders for placing refugees in neighboring central Asian countries - but which according to Putin is a potential threat to Russia as "We don't want militants showing up here under cover of refugees."

It now appears Russia will take its security concerns a big step further, in what will be seen as a defiant thumb in the eye to Washington. Russia's RIA news agency is reporting that the Kremlin stands "ready to deliver weapons and equipment to central Asian allies that border Afghanistan." Further RIA cited top officials who said these large deliveries would be done "at special low prices".

Chaos on streets of Australia as police blast anti-lockdown protesters with rubber bullets

Australian police arrested hundreds of anti-lockdown protesters in Melbourne and Sydney on Saturday and seven officers were hospitalised as a result of clashes, as the country saw its highest-ever single-day rise in COVID-19 cases. Mounted police used pepper spray in Melbourne to break up crowds of more than 4,000 surging toward police lines, while smaller groups of protesters were prevented from congregating in Sydney by a large contingent of riot police. Footage on social media has shown the protesters pepper-sprayed amid reports police are "using rubber bullets".

‘Welcome to Nazi Germany’: In now-deleted tweet, Sydney mayor compares strict new lockdown laws to Hitler-era regime

A Western Sydney official has compared the latest anti-Covid measures imposed on his area by the New South Wales (NSW) state government to the times of Nazi Germany. His comment, since removed, caused a rumpus on social media.

Mayor Steve Christou, of Cumberland City Council, tweeted an official graphic illustrating new lockdown rules on Friday. Having posted the image that warned residents of the mandate that requires them to have a permit to leave the region and to register their personal details to be allowed to visit a “singles buddy” within a five-kilometer (three-mile) reach, he wrote: “Welcome to Nazi Germany.” The comment from the councilor, who describes himself as having “a tendency to speak what I think,” was later deleted.

US Expansionism in Eurasia, Control over Afghanistan

The ex-Soviet states of the Caucasus and Central Asia have, following the early 1990s, been “all about America’s energy security” according to Bill Richardson, the Clinton era diplomat and former American ambassador to the United Nations.

For seven decades, the Soviet Union’s existence blocked the way to the vast fossil fuel sources of the Caucasus, Central Asia and also the Caspian Sea. This reality had been of ongoing frustration to Western strategic planners, but the Soviet collapse 30 years ago provoked jubilant scenes in Washington and London.

Stew Peters spoke with an Australian ex-military official who confirmed that AT LEAST two children are dead after being inoculated in a mass of 24,000 kids that were ushered into a sports arena to take the jab in the absence of any adults.

The horrific Nazi-like ushering of masses of helpless youths is the furtherance of proof that Australia is the prototype for the New World Order.

It is also providing Thailand with $5 million to cope with novel coronavirus, U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, announced the funding during a visit to Thailand, he added.

America’s top diplomat expressed concern to Southeast Asian foreign ministers about China’s growing nuclear arsenal, the State Department said Friday.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken outlined to the ASEAN Regional Forum, an online meeting of more than 20 countries, a list of provocative Chinese behavior.

“The secretary also noted deep concern with the rapid growth of the PRC’s nuclear arsenal which highlights how Beijing has sharply deviated from its decades-old nuclear strategy based on minimum deterrence,” State spokesman Ned Price said, referring to the People’s Republic of China.

FBI BUSTS INTERNATIONAL PLOT TO TAKE OUT MYANMAR’S UN AMBASSADOR IN NEW YORK

Myanmar’s junta rulers have maintained an iron grip on the country since the February 2021 coup d’etat which saw elected leaders of the National League for Democracy get rapidly deposed and placed under arrest by the army.

But given the United Nations has not recognized the coup government under the generals, Myanmar’s ambassador to the UN Kyaw Moe Tun has actually remained in place despite him also saying he does not recognize the new government. He’s continued to represent the now deposed National Unity Government at UN meetings in New York City.

But the military has said he no longer represents the country. State TV announced last February that he’d "betrayed" Myanmar and was fired, particularly after his public calls for outside countries to employ "all means necessary" to reverse the army takeover.

Australia is Under Dystopian, Military-Enforced Lockdown Despite Less Than 5 COVID Deaths a Day

By Brad Polumbo

Out of a population of 25.8 million, fewer than 1,000 Australians have died from COVID-19 to date. The latest uptick in cases, which has sent the country into a panic, is still only resulting in less than 5 deaths per day. Yet the Australian government has responded with a return to its past harsh pandemic restrictions—and is now even bringing in the military to police its citizens’ lockdown compliance.

Malaysia deploys riot police as MPs attempt march to parliament

Opposition members of Malaysia’s parliament were met by riot police and threatened with arrest as they tried to march to the parliament building on Monday amid rising political tension over the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Parliament began a “special session” last week after a months-long shutdown that was triggered by a declaration of emergency in January because of COVID, with opposition politicians lambasting Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and his cabinet over the continuing rise in cases and deaths despite months of an increasingly strict lockdown.

Armenia asks Russia to deploy soldiers to frontier with Azerbaijan, as shootout kills three soldiers & sparks fear of new conflict

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has called on Moscow to deploy more peacekeepers to his country’s border with Azerbaijan, as both nations accuse each other of violating an agreed ceasefire after a day of bloody fighting.

Speaking at a government meeting on Thursday, he said that, “given the current situation, I think it makes sense to consider deploying strongholds of Russian border guards across the whole Armenian-Azerbaijani border.” According to Pashinyan, this would “allow for the demarcation of the border, without the risk of firefights.”

Officials in Yerevan announced that three soldiers had died and five had been wounded after a fatal skirmish along the frontier on Wednesday evening. Casualties were also reported on the Azerbaijani side of the border. Russian peacekeepers are already stationed in outposts near key towns and villages as part of the Moscow-backed deal, signed last year, that paused the fighting in a brief but violent war between the two nations.

Nakhichevan: Corridor to the Next Round of Nagorno-Karabakh Combat

Ever since the "end" of the latest forty-four day war between Turkish and Israeli-backed – and American-enabled – Azerbaijan and (at best vaguely) Russian-aligned Armenia, there’ve been a slew of policy-wonkish laments about the resultant "illiberal peace." That’s mainly a function of the Russia- and China-hysteria that passes for sound strategic judgment in the Emerald City on the Potomac, and Washington’s sour grapes that the (semi-) ceasefire was Moscow-brokered. Leaving aside for a moment the glaring hypocrisy – one needn’t wonders whether the US would’ve insisted on mediating combat raging 110 miles from its border (i.e. in Quebec, Canada or Monterey, Mexico) – the truth is the non-settlement of this latest Nagorno-Karabakh war hasn’t and won’t bring peace. Neither side is satisfied. The shooting never stopped – it still hasn’t, and is only likely to escalate.

SecDef Austin Stresses the Importance of Anti-China Partnerships in Asia

With the Pentagon focused on China, the US military wants to shore up and strengthen partnerships to counter Beijing in Asia. Speaking in Singapore on Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin slammed China and stressed the importance of alliances to face what he called “coercion” in the Indo-Pacific region.

Austin said the US would work “with partners to deter coercion and aggression across the spectrum of conflict. He said the US will cooperate with allies in the region using what he called “integrated deterrence,” which includes all military domains, including cyber and space.

Austin said he has seen Chinese “aggression” in places like the South China Sea, Taiwan, Xinjiang, and other areas. He reaffirmed that the US was willing to go to war with China over maritime disputes with the Philippines and Japan. “We remain committed to the treaty obligations that we have to Japan in the Senkaku Islands and to the Philippines in the South China Sea,” he said.

Can Turkmenistan Become A Serious Gas Player In Europe?

The Caspian Sea is one of the world’s largest and oldest oil and gas producing regions.

During the Cold War, the hydrocarbon-rich area was Soviet-controlled as the vast majority of the reserves were located in the Soviet Union. Since the breakup of the communist state, international companies have flocked to the newly independent countries such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. Of the littoral states, Turkmenistan has by far the largest reserves when it comes to natural gas. Geographic isolation and animosity with Azerbaijan long prevented the export of gas to customers in Europe.

While the Black Lives Matter movement continues unabated in the US, a broader discussion on discrimination and racism is now being brought up on the other side of the world. Some foreigners and locals with dark skin have spoken up about the overt racism they’ve experienced in Thailand.

While activists in America protest alleged police brutality and racial profiling, some with dark skin in Thailand say they’ve lost their jobs or been denied entry into bars because of their skin colour. White skin is seen as beautiful in Thailand with many skin whitening products even sold at convenience stores. Dark skin has been associated with low-paid outdoor work, while lighter skin has been perceived as ‘successful’ as many with office jobs stay indoors.

Visualizing Asia's Slide Into A Dangerous New Ballistic Missile Race

The last couple years of military build-up and standoff between China and the United States in the South China Sea has resulted in fears of a new dangerous arms race, as smaller nations in the region rapidly bolster their defenses in order to avoid being "caught in the middle" which would result in having to be overly dependent on one side of the tensions.

A new Reuters report chronicling the growth in regional missile stockpiles says China is "mass producing its DF-26, a multipurpose weapon with a range of up to 4,000 kilometres, while the United States is developing new weapons aimed at countering Beijing in the Pacific."
