"Too many people are only willing to defend rights that are personally important to them. It's selfish ignorance, and it's exactly why totalitarian governments are able to get away with trampling on people. Freedom does not mean freedom just for the things I think I should be able to do. Freedom is for all of us. If people will not speak up for other people's rights, there will come a day when they will lose their own." -- Tony Lawrence ([email protected]) 12/28/95

10 Current Trends of Operation Coronavirus as of September 2021

Following on from the article I wrote a month ago 10 Current Trends of Operation Coronavirus as of August 2021. The situation has become more intense, with the NWO (New World Order) cabal becoming increasingly desperate to stick the needle into the bloodstream of every single person on the planet by whatever means necessary – consent, decree or coercion – just as NWO frontman Bill Gates promised at the start of the scamdemic. Although we are 1.5 years into this operation, it feels like just the beginning of what will be a long battle of freedom vs tyranny, to be played out worldwide in every corner of the planet. Here are the latest patterns and COVID trends.

Mayorkas Complains About Working Too Hard

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Wednesday condemned long work hours for his failure — for a second day — to provide basic information to Congress on how many migrants arrested at the border have been freed or returned to their home countries.

During a virtual hearing with the Homeland Security Committee focused on “Worldwide Threats to the Homeland: 20 Years After 9/11,” Mayorkas had a tense exchange with Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), who touched him on the matter.

Petrol panic-buying begins as UK plunges towards Winter of Discontent 2.0: Food, gas, fuel and labour shortages see desperate bosses offering HGV drivers £78,000 salaries and fruit-pickers on £30-a-hour

Panic buying at the pumps has already begun today amid fears fuel rationing is on the way due to the UK's crippling HGV driver shortage - as Transport Secretary Grant Shapps tried to calm nerves by urging Britons 'carry on as normal'.

Queues of cars were seen spilling out on to the road from forecourts in Tonbridge, Kent, in Ely, Cambridgeshire, Bright and Leeds this morning - just a day after fuel bosses warned of petrol and diesel rationing and petrol station closures.

The scenes of queues outside petrol stations - which for some will stir up memories of the 1973 Opec Oil Crisis - come amid fears of a 1978-style 'winter of discontent' for the UK with skyrocketing energy prices, food shortages and fuel rationing.

Assassinating General of Peace most obvious example of US terrorism: Iran FM

Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)’s president, Iran’s foreign minister says US perpetration of terrorism is epitomized by the assassination of Iran’s senior anti-terror commander, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.

“The assassination of Martyr General Soleimani, the great General of Peace, by the United States on the Iraqi soil, was one of the most obvious instances of terrorism,” Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said during a face-to-face meeting with Abdulla Shahid on Thursday in New York. Amir-Abdollahian has travelled to the city to attend the UN General Assembly’s 76th Session.

An international legal committee has been formed inside the Islamic Republic to pursue the atrocity, with the aim of consigning those who perpetrated and ordered it to justice, he added.

The United Nations, however, definitely played an important role in this regard too, Amir-Abdollahian underscored.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he is considering being renamed in honour of the Greek God Boreas. The moment came as BoJo talked about climate change at a UN General Assembly session in New York.

In one part of his address to the General Assembly on Wednesday, the PM praised the UK government's "Promethean faith in new green technology" to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Will a Renewed ‘Operation Cyclone’ Threaten Afghanistan’s New Silk Road Future?

The Chinese and their growing array of partners have come to the fundamental insight that the only way to destroy terrorism is not by bombing nations to smithereens, but rather by providing the means of improving the lives of people.

With the recent pledge by China, Russia, Iran and Pakistan for renewed defense of Afghanistan’s sovereignty and right to develop, many have jumped the gun to celebrate a little prematurely.

While watching a hegemonic wanna-be global overlord choke on humble pie is certainly satisfying, and while Afghanistan unquestionably has a renewed hope to recapture its ancient role as a pearl on the Silk Road uniting all cultures of the globe, something darker is also afoot. A process reminiscent of the events of 1979 when Zbigniew Brzezinski, then leading a trilateral Commission takeover of the USA using a dim-witted puppet president, managed to launch a program known as “Operation Cyclone”.

Putin the Poisoner? More Doubts Over Attempts to Delegitimize Russia’s Leader

It seems that ever since Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election of 2016 the western media and numerous politicians have been working especially hard to convince the world that the Russian government is little better than a modern version of Josef Stalin’s USSR. Part of the effort can be attributed to the Democratic Party’s desire to blame someone other than the unattractive candidate Hillary for the defeat, but there is also something more primitive operating behind the scenes, something like a desire to return to a bipolar world in which one knew one’s enemies and one’s friends.

The anti-Russian bias has manifested itself in a number of ways, to include the fabricated libel referred to as Russiagate, but it also featured personal denigration of the Russian leadership as a rogue regime inclined to employ assassination by poisoning against its critics and political opponents.

Praying for a warm Autumn? Kwarteng is branded 'complacent' for suggesting the WEATHER could ease the crisis over gas prices - as boss of collapsed energy firm Green warns big suppliers will soon come 'cap in hand for a bailout'

Kwasi Kwarteng was branded 'shameful' today after he suggested a warm autumn might be the best hope of easing the crisis over gas prices.

Dragged back to be grilled by MPs on the crisis, the Business Secretary stressed the weather is the 'single most important determinant' of costs. The comment came hours after Boris Johnson made a speech at the UN warning of the dangers of climate change.

But he denied the government was 'complacent' about the issues and repeated that there will be no 'reward for failure' bailouts for collapsing energy firms, amid warnings that big suppliers will soon come 'cap in hand' for support.

Hawaii to remove forbidden staircase due to ‘rampant trespassing’

Hawaii officials have announced plans to spend $1m removing a popular mountain trail known as the Stairway to Heaven, which they say has become the scene of “rampant illegal trespassing” and safety concerns despite the public being banned from using it.

Tens of thousands of people have climbed the Haiku Stairs, which span nearly 4,000 steps across Oahu’s Ko’olau mountain range, since the US navy built the trail during the second world war. Though the public has been forbidden from the stairs since 1987, numerous people continued to use them, despite no trespassing signs and fines of up to $1,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "stairway to heaven" as locals call it, was built to provide access to a huge antenna system stretching across Haiku Valley for a Loran-C station. When GPS became available, the Loran-C system was shut down. Prior to being used for Loran-C, the facility was a top-secret VLF system to communicate with submerged submarines dating back to WW2! If you watched the TV series LOST, the radio building was used for the "Hydra Station" in Season 3. One of the real joys of working that show was getting to see all these interesting and historical sites normally off-limits to tourists!

The first Martian rock samples collected by NASA’s Perseverance rover for eventual return to Earth suggest landing site Jezero Crater harbored water for a long enough time to be habitable for microbial life.

On Sept. 2, 2021, using the drill attached to the end of its seven-foot (2.1-meter) robotic arm, the rover successfully collected the first of up to 30 rock samples. It was Perseverance’s second attempt to collect a sample as the first attempt Aug. 5 failed because the rock crumbled before it could be placed in a collection tube.

Initial images of the stored sample captured by the Perseverance rover’s Mastcam-Z camera were blurry due to low levels of sunlight at the time the images were taken. For this reason, mission scientists made sure to capture additional photos of the sample over the next few days under better lighting conditions. Once the sample was successfully collected, the drill bit vibrated for just one second five separate times to throw off residual material.

Howell’s decision isn’t binding on other judges in the US District Court for the District of Columbia presiding over Capitol riot prosecutions, but it gives the media coalition a favorable ruling to point to in future fights.
