The world's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, is back in action after a three year break for maintenance and an upgrade with more energy, higher intensity beams and greater precision. 

The LHC at CERN, outside of Geneva, is set to run 24/7 for nearly four years at a record energy of 13.6 trillion electronvolts. The upgrades should give LHC tools greater precision and allow for more particle collisions, brighter light and more discovery about particles in quantum field theory. 

CERN used the LHC to discover the Higgs boson on July 4, 2012, before its first long shutdown. Back then, under LHC "Run 1", the LHC was operating at 3.5 trillion electronvolts (TeVs). Run 2 occurred between 2015 and 2018 with proton beams colliding 13 TeVs before the second long shutdown. Now it's time for Run 3 at 13.6 TeVs or 6.8 TeV per beam.

The war in Ukraine is clearly progressing in Russia's favor. That is why I am appalled by the incompetent descriptions in 'western' media of past and current operations in that war.

When I was in the military my tank battalion was expected to operate on a generally five kilometer (3 miles) wide frontline. That was of course just a rule of thumb depending on the terrain and other circumstances. But we can expect that a Russian Battalion Tactical Group (BTC) has similar abilities of frontline coverage.

Russia needed some 25 BTCs to cover the frontline on June 21. It now needs only 5 BTC to cover the current line. There were and now are of course additional reserve troops and some BTC are rotated out as rested ones come in just as Russia's president has ordered them to do:

Shoigu told Putin that “the operation” was completed Sunday after Russian troops overran the city of Lysychansk, the last stronghold of Ukrainian forces in Luhansk.

Putin, in turn, said that the military units “that took part in active hostilities and achieved success, victory” in Luhansk “should rest, increase their combat capabilities.”

In a week or two those BTCs which now rest and resupply will be back. They will create a new cauldron around Siversk and maybe Bakhmut, decimate the Ukrainian forces within it to then capture the whole area.

Despite this obvious path to progress for the Russian side the Associate Press headlines:

Denmark has some of the most stringent gun controls in the world, yet numerous people were shot and some killed Sunday at the Field’s shopping mall in Copenhagen.

Danish police confirmed multiple people were shot at the mall and that “several” have been killed, Breitbart News reported.

Police inspector Søren Thomassen said, “We know that there are several dead…[and] several injured,” according to the Associated Press.

The University of Sydney’s categorizes Denmark’s gun control as “restrictive,” and they note that “the right to gun ownership is not guaranteed by law.”

BlazeTV host Dave Rubin was suspended from Twitter on Tuesday after he complained about Dr. Jordan Peterson's suspension for a tweet about transgender actor Elliot Page, formerly known as Ellen Page.

In an Instagram post, Rubin revealed that he had been placed in Twitter jail "for posting a screenshot of Jordan Peterson's tweet which got he himself suspended."

"While it is unclear how I broke their terms of service, it is clear that they are breaking their fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders by letting a bunch of Woke activists run the company," Rubin wrote.

"I hope Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter goes through so he can blow up their servers and humanity can move past this pervasive, twisted, self-imposed mental institution," he added.

Arecent, high-level hire at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy defended a controversial gay prostitution website with a track record of allowing children to be promoted for sexual services on the platform, The National Pulse can reveal.

The revelations, from unearthed op-ed, follow The National Pulse exposé of appointee Samuel Brinton’s past as a drag queen, LGBTQ+ activist who has “lectured” on kink at college campuses and participated in interviews about fetish roleplay.

In an article published on September 15th on the pro-LGBT+ website Advocate, Biden’s latest top nuclear hire dives into a defense of the “” website, which shuttered following an August 2015 illegal prostitution raid. “Rentboy” is a colloquial term for young men who have sex with older men in exchange for money, often under dubious circumstances.

A federal judge has upheld several parts of a voter integrity law that was passed in Georgia.

Judge J.P. Boulee of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia upheld the parts of Georgia’s Election Integrity Law challenged by an organization that sends prospective voters prefilled absentee ballot applications.

VoteAmerica sued Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to strike down portions of the bill that added requirements for organizations or individuals that mail prefilled absentee ballot applications to potential voters.

The bill, Georgia SB 202, was signed into law in May 2021 by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. It includes three provisions that apply additional restrictions to such ballot applications.

Under the law, third-party organizations are prohibited from sending absentee ballot applications prefilled with the prospective voter’s required information. They are also prohibited from sending applications to prospective voters who have already requested an absentee ballot.

Rep. Liz Cheney, who looks to lose her Wyoming congressional seat to a Trump-backed challenger in next month’s GOP primary, discussed her political future during an interview on Sunday.

During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” host Jonathan Karl asked Cheney if she had any plans to run for president in 2024 “as a way to prevent what you say would be destruction to the party.”

Newsweek added:

The GOP lawmaker said she has not yet made a decision about 2024, and that she is currently focused on her reelection bid to Congress. She faces a tough primary election against Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman in Wyoming where Trump remains deeply popular.

“I haven’t made a decision about that yet. I’m obviously very focused on my reelection. I’m very focused on the January 6 committee,” Cheney responded. “I’m very focused on my obligations to do the job that I have now.”

London has proposed new legislation that would require social media to “proactively” tackle “disinformation” that allegedly pours into the UK from foreign states such as Russia and harms the nation, the government said on Tuesday. Platforms failing to do so will be subject to huge fines or could be blocked.

The legislation, which is subject to parliamentary approval, would oblige social media platforms to hunt down what the government believes to be fake accounts that act in the interests of foreign states and seek to influence UK politics, including elections.

The new amendment will also compel social media, search engines and other websites to crack down on such accounts in order to minimize the number of people exposed to “state-sponsored disinformation.”

“We cannot allow foreign states or their puppets to use the internet to conduct hostile online warfare unimpeded,” said Nadine Dorries, the UK culture and digital secretary, pointing out that the Ukraine conflict has shown that Russia is ready to weaponize information.

According to the proposed law, social media will have to make creating fake accounts more difficult and will also need to fight bots used for misleading the public. Ofcom, the British media regulator, will have the authority to fine any internet resources that don’t comply up to 10% of their global turnover.

The amendment is set be included in the National Security Bill, which will be discussed by British MPs next week.

“Fox & Friends Weekend” host Rachel Campos-Duffy and her husband Sean Duffy, a former Republican congressman, criticized Disney last week for substituting actor Tim Allen for Chris Evans to voice “Toy Story” character Buzz Lightyear in the spinoff “Lightyear.”

While executives for the film argue they replaced Allen, an open Republican because the Buzz character in the spinoff “Lightyear” is different than the toy voiced by Allen, the couple announced the actual reason was over the actor’s politics.

“Why would they change the voice? Kids wanna hear the same voice in the toy that they heard in the movie,” Duffy announced.

That’s how dumb this is, they’re trying to come up with an excuse as for why they’re canceling Tim Allen,” he went on. “They couldn’t let the reason be he’s a Republican, they had to create some other reason as for why they were kicking him out.”

Campos Duffy said no one online believes Disney, anyway. “Everyone knows that Tim Allen was basically canceled,” she stated.

The couple stressed that openly pro-life actress Patricia Heaton denounced Disney

last month for the replacement, too, asking why the corporation would “completely castrate this iconic, beloved character.”

Tokyo’s proposal to place a cap on Russian oil prices would lead to significantly less oil on the market and could drastically push oil prices higher, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev warned on Tuesday.

Responding to the idea put forward by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Sunday, Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel that Japan “would have neither oil nor gas from Russia, as well as no participation in the Sakhalin-2 LNG project” if Tokyo decided to go through with the proposal.

“Japanese PM Kishida recently blurted out that the price ceiling for Russian oil would be set at half its current price. Plus, a mechanism will be created that will not allow the purchase of our oil at a price higher than the established one,” the former president wrote.

He went on to explain what this would mean when “translated from Japanese into Russian,” writing that such a move would severely limit the amount of oil available on the market, causing its price to be “much higher.”

“In fact, it will be even higher than the predicted astronomical price of $300-400 a barrel. Compare this with the dynamic of gas prices,” Medvedev said.

The following article provides an excellent summary of the crimes that have been committed by subversive globalist factions within our own government, it also illustrates how awareness of what has been done is now spreading like a forest fire even to those people who might be considered staunch Conservatives and about as far from “conspiracy theorists” or “dissidents” as one can get.

The brutal fact is that we have a political establishment that lied to us cynically and with malice aforethought when it pushed the v4cc1n3s on us with false promises they were “safe”  “effective” and “vital”.

They were none of the above (and they knew it) but by the time people realised it, it was already too late for millions who had been bullied, cajoled or conned into submitting to the booby-trapped injections.

We are looking here at a level of reckless irresponsibility, dishonesty and a willingness to play Russian Roulette with the lives on millions of trusting citizens that almost beggars belief.

The January 6 Committee is taking more heat for not fact checking some of the basic statements from "star witness" Cassidy Hutchinson that garnered the most media attention.

Politico's Betsy Woodruff explained that the Committee didn't even take the "very basic step" of checking the story about Trump lunging for the wheel of the Presidential Limo on January 6:

We do know the select committee has full access to the Secret Service, the agency made that clear a month or two ago when I spoke to them for a story about Bobby Engel. We also know that Tony Ornato and Bobby Engel both testified to the select committee earlier this year. My understanding - I'm not aware of them testifying to the effect of there having been this sort of violence, or a lunging in The Beast in that ride back to the White House. I can also tell you in the 10 days before Cassidy Hutchinson's hearing, as the select committee scrambled to pull the hearing together, investigations on the committee did not follow up with the Secret Service to circle back and ask Engel or Ornato if they wanted to amplify or expand on their prior testimony. And the select committee is taking some heat for that, because, as journalists it would have been a very basic step. If someone tells you a story, before presenting it publicly, you check with everybody who might know and follow up and figure out if it can be corroborated or can't be. 

There were many immediate flaws with the story Hutchinson told. Dan Bongino pointed out on his podcast last week that upon departing his rally on January 6, Trump didn't get into the Presidential Limo, he got in an SUV, meaning the story can't possibly be true. Dan also pointed out that Hutchinson recalled secret service agent Ornato as telling her that the "president got in The Beast," but that no Secret Service agents call the Presidential Limo that. Ornato has also since contradicted Hutchinson's account.

Earlier this year, I co-authored a piece for The Wall Street Journal that argued that a perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once unfathomable scenario — a comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024 — highly plausible.

Our reasoning was that President Biden’s low approval rating, doubt about his capacity to run again, Vice President Harris’s unpopularity, and the absence of another strong Democrat to lead the ticket have created a leadership vacuum within the party that only Clinton — as an experienced and politically savvy “change candidate” — can fill.

In light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade — upending decades of precedent and revoking a constitutional right that American women have enjoyed for half a century — the case for Clinton’s candidacy is even clearer.

Doctors are mystified by a rash of seizures, rashes, etc. happening to 2 and 3-year-old kids.

The only thing these kids have in common is that they were given the COVID vaccine just days earlier (two to five days earlier).

The doctors cannot figure out what is causing the seizures (since it couldn’t be the vaccine since those are safe and effective). The medical staff is not permitted to talk about the cases to the press or on social media or they will be fired.

One nurse posted something to the effect of “how is this legal????” I had to paraphrase to protect the poster.

This is why you are hearing these reports from me. They can’t fire me.

There is nothing on the mainstream media about this since the nurses and doctors aren’t allowed to talk about it.

This will all come out some day, but for now, everyone is keeping quiet about it and the doctors are instructed to convince the parents that it isn’t vaccine related and that they are the only ones having the problem.

According to a recent ruling by an Uruguayan judge, the government and the pharmaceutical company Pfizer must provide all the information they have on the COVID vaccine’s biochemical composition, including any evidence of “graphene oxide” or “nanotechnological elements,” as well as proof of the vaccine’s efficacy and safety.

Administrative Litigation Court (TCA) Judge Alejandro Recarey made the order in response to a request to suspend the immunization of children from 5 years of age in Uruguay.

The day after Russia’s February invasion of Ukraine, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner sent a letter to Google warning it to be on alert for “exploitation of your platform by Russia and Russian-linked entities,” and calling on the company to audit its advertising business’s compliance with economic sanctions.

But as recently as June 23, Google was sharing potentially sensitive user data with a sanctioned Russian ad tech company owned by Russia’s largest state bank, according to a new report provided to ProPublica.

Google allowed RuTarget, a Russian company that helps brands and agencies buy digital ads, to access and store data about people browsing websites and apps in Ukraine and other parts of the world, according to research from digital ad analysis firm Adalytics. Adalytics identified close to 700 examples of RuTarget receiving user data from Google after the company was added to a US Treasury list of sanctioned entities on Feb. 24. The data sharing between Google and RuTarget stopped four months later on June 23, the day ProPublica contacted Google about the activity.

RuTarget, which also operates under the name Segmento, is owned by Sberbank, a Russian state bank that the Treasury described as “uniquely important” to the country’s economy when it hit the lender with initial sanctions. RuTarget was later listed in an April 6 Treasury announcement that imposed full blocking sanctions on Sberbank and other Russian entities and people. The sanctions mean US individuals and entities are not supposed to conduct business with RuTarget or Sberbank.

Hume fired back by questioning if members of the “Squad” have any real knowledge of history.

“That’s one more sign of how open this country has become and how much more opportunity is available now to minority populations than ever used to be the case,” he said.

“And that may be the case anywhere else in the world,” Hume continued. “So, my view is that the people who say these things, they do a wonderful job of getting publicity for themselves. I mean, this group, ‘The Squad,’ gets coverage far beyond its influence.”

A recent financial report indicates blue states are suffering major economic distress as their populations continue to flee to red states.

Wirepoints – an Illinois-based research company focused on state and local fiscal crises – released their findings on how states with a growing population experience “an increasing tax base, economic growth and investment,” while those losing residents have “more difficulties in paying down debts, higher taxes and fewer investments.”

And the news isn’t so good for blue states, as we found out from the latest census.

IRS migration data from the latest figures (2020), they write, show “Florida is the biggest winner” and “New York is the biggest loser” in the “competition for people and their wealth.”

Of the top 10 states in Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), seven are led by Republican governors.

Germany, the industrial giant constituting over one quarter of the European Union’s GDP, has been among the nations hit hardest by the bloc’s self-induced energy and inflation crunch, with Germans urged to bathe less, wear sweaters to stay warm and ride bikes more to get around. Last month, a poll found that 1/6 of the country is food insecure.

Major sectors of the German economy could “permanently” collapse thanks to the gas and inflation crises pummeling the country, German Trade Union Confederation chairwoman Yasmin Fahimi has warned.

“We have a real emergency. Entire branches of industry are in danger of collapsing permanently because of the gas bottlenecks: aluminum, glass, the chemical industry,” Fahimi said in an interview with Bild.

“Such a collapse would have massive consequences for the entire economy and jobs in Germany,” the trade union leader warned.

Fahimi, who met with Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Monday to discuss the crisis, told Bild that a third relief package from the government was essential, particularly for the unemployed, pensioners and students.

The Canadian government is ‘working to reach a resolution’ over a gas turbine being held up by sanctions that Russia says is to blame for a fuel shortage in Germany.

Meanwhile, Ottawa signals fresh interest in East Coast LNG exports as European gas crisis deepens, meaning that the tides may finally be turning in favour of LNG exports from Atlantic Canada…

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Canadians insist government must stand firm on Russian sanctions, not return gas turbine…

I could be wrong, but I think Trudeau will only send the gas turbine back if and only if Germany signs a contract for Canadian LNG. But nobody will say it like that…

In July 2022, all banks across India will be closed for a total of 14 days (including weekends). The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has indicated that the bank holidays in July may vary by state and region. Although July has a total of 14 bank holidays, not all branches would observe them as the dates of festivals vary in different states.

The account-holders can continue using online banking and mobile banking for bank-related tasks despite the mentioned bank holidays.

The RBI categorizes bank holidays into three groups:

  • Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act
  • Holiday under Negotiable Instruments Act and Real-Time Gross Settlement Holiday
  • Banks’ Closing of Accounts

In India, banks will be closed on weekends other than the scheduled holidays (every Sunday and second & fourth Saturdays).

 Yes America, our tax dollars pay for this. By this, we’re talking about National Public Radio (NPR), which is better described as Democratic Party State Radio. On Independence Day, NPR scrapped its long tradition of reading the Declaration of Independence in favor of a discussion about “what equality means,” Fox News reports.

The tradition, which has been an annual ritual for 33 years on NPR’s “Morning Edition” has involved NPR staff reading the Declaration, one of our founding documents in celebration of America’s birthday.

Instead, co-host Leila Fadel announced on Twitter that NPR was skipping the tradition, instead focusing on their interpretation of what Thomas Jefferson, the document’s author, meant by “all men are created equal.”

In an 11-minute discussion between host Steve Inskeep and two historians, they engaged in a discussion on steps taken by Americans in the fight for equal rights for all men and women in the United States.

Of course, as a good liberal outlet, NPR attempted to tie the fight for equality into the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v Wade.

A report published earlier this week provides fresh evidence that the U.S. Deep State is heavily invested in Ukraine and is going all-out to prevent the country from falling into Russian hands.

Readers likely recall that despite the fact that the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) knew months in advance that Russia was building up its forces around Ukraine in preparation for an invasion, Washington and Brussels appeared to do little to shore up Kyiv’s defenses. Once Russia sent its forces into Ukraine on Feb. 24, most outside observers figured that the Red Army would make quick work of the lesser-armed and overmatched Ukrainian army.

But shortly thereafter, out of nowhere, the Biden regime moved quickly to provide Ukraine with lethal aid even after the same people criticized then-President Donald Trump for doing the same thing during his administration. This, of course, after tens of millions of Americans learned that the Obama regime meddled in Ukraine in 2014, causing a coup, and Hunter Biden scored lucrative business deals in the corrupt country, much of which he was forced to share with his dad.

And since then, the globalists in Congress have gotten on board as well, approving billions in weapons aid and money to what was one of the most corrupt countries in all of Europe.

Now we learn that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been heavily involved in Ukraine as well, likely running operations there like the Cold War never ended.

Under Joe Biden's national security agenda, immigrants with ties to terrorists are being allowed to enter the United States.

And that, explains a new report in Just the News, is raising concerns about the nation's security.

According to the report, under Biden's leadership, officials in the State and Homeland Security departments recently announced they have taken the federal law called the Immigration and Nationality Act and changed it.

The changes now would allow entry into the U.S., as well as other "immigration benefits," to those people who have provided support to terrorists, if their support could be considered "limited" or "insignificant," Just the News explained.
