Thought for the day

"The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin." -- Mark Twain
"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - You may know that your society is doomed." -- Ayn Rand, 'Atlas Shrugged', 1957

The Ukrainian Army is using American-made and supplied Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS) to fire shells at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in Ukraine, which is occupied by Russian Troops.

The image above shows a blast fragment from an American GMLRS shell "Actuator" recovered after it exploded on the grounds of the Nuclear Plant Thursday.  The English language on the Actuator manufacturing label shows the part number, serial number, the date of manufacture, and says "Actuator Module Assembly" on it.

The Russian Army won control of the Nuclear Power Plant early in its Special Military Operation to de-militarize and De-Nazify Ukraine.  The nuclear power plant is the largest in Europe, with six nuclear reactors.  Russia conquered it in March of this year, and has safeguarded the plant ever since.

The reason Russia took the plant is that if there was a nuclear accident with that plant, radioactive contamination would be carried by local prevailing winds, directly into Russia.  The Russians don't want any radiation floating into their country.

Today, Accountable.US released its updated and conclusive report on Big Oil’s massive second-quarter earnings, showing that the 28 largest oil companies made a record-breaking $90 billion in profits – a 183% increase over the same quarter from last year. According to the report, during the past three months, the companies funneled $15 billion in dividends to their shareholders while dramatically raising gas prices to historic levels for American consumers. 

Oil executives boasted about their massive profits during earning calls: Coterra’s CEO described their financial state as an “embarrassment of riches,” and Halliburton’s CEO went so far as to brag that customers will “expect and accept” high gas prices.

Chile’s National Geology and Mining Service, Sernageomin, ordered a temporary suspension of activities at Lundin Mining’s (TSX: LUN) Alcaparrosa mine following the opening of a giant sinkhole above the underground operation.

The sinkhole, which emerged on July 30, is 50 meters in diameter and 200 meters deep.

In a statement posted on social media, Sernageomin said the decision was made in response to safety concerns of the nearby Tierra Amarilla community and also to support the work of the experts conducting an investigation into the causes of the accident.

Sernageomin also said that it has issued sanctions against Candelaria, the subsidiary that operates the Candelaria complex in Chile’s northern Atacama region, where Alcaparrosa is located.

Alcaparrosa is one of two underground mines that make up the Ojos del Salado operation within the Candelaria complex.

It can certainly be said that the risk for nuclear war is far greater today than it was less a year ago. Ever since the conflict in Ukraine began, the collective West and its vassals, also known as the “international community” have been engaged in a hybrid war against Russia, stopping just short of direct confrontation. Although some EU leaders like Borrell seem to think that the West is an active combatant in the conflict. “We must explain to our citizens that this is not someone else’s war,” Borrell said in an interview published by newspaper El Pais on Thursday. “The public must be willing to pay the price of supporting Ukraine and for preserving the unity of the EU.”

We are at war. These things are not free,” he added.

The same Borrell offered his thoughts on Western hypocrisy and double standards in international affairs, with regards to the Zionist slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza this past week. “We are often criticized for double standards. But international politics is to a large degree about applying double standards. We do not use the same criteria for all problems,” he told El Pais newspaper, as cited on Thursday. A rare piece of honesty for a man who makes his living by lying and deceiving others. Yet he failed to mention why those double standards exist. International politics is only about applying double standards when you’re an imperialist and colonizer. Of course he wouldn’t mention that they don’t “use the same criteria for all problems” when it is his masters in Tel Aviv that are the ones waging war on defenceless people.

So this proves that the West throwing tantrums to the left and right over Ukraine really has nothing to do with concern for civilian lives lost. Because when the Zionists massacre children with impunity, the “international community” is pretty silent.

George Hunt was present at the ‘Fourth World Wilderness Congress’ in 1987 and noticed that it had very little to do with the conventional environment movement and was surprised to see people like Maurice Strong, Edmund de Rothschild (Pilgrims Society), David Rockefeller (Pilgrims Society), and James A. Baker (Pilgrims Society; Cap & Gown; trustee American Institute for Contemporary German Studies; Atlantic Council of the United States; National Security Planning Group; Bohemian Grove; CFR; Carlyle; advisor George W. Bush in his 2000 election).

“I suggest therefore that this be sold not through a democratic process – that would take too long and devour far too much of the funds – to educate the cannon fodder, unfortunately, that populates the earth.” (David Lang, a Montreal International Banker). 

In 1992, our national leaders who are nothing but errand boys for the Rothschilds, sold us out in terms of national sovereignty, democracy and personal freedom. They adopted a depopulation agenda under the guise of “conservation,” which really means conserving the planet for the people who own and control it. We are seeing the fruits of this long-term depopulation agenda today. Mankind has a terminal disease, blood poisoning. “Money” is the blood supply of society. Our feckless ancestors gave control of money to people who use it to enslave and destroy us.

An alternate measure… would be to add birth control chemicals to the water supply or to commonly ingested foods such as beer, soda, or milk.”  — Maurice Strong

Jair Bolsonaro’s rise to the presidency of Brazil was unimaginable just a few years before he took power. Long considered a pariah and a disgrace, the former army captain and congressman occupied a fringe position on Brazil’s extreme right during the 14-year reign of Brazil’s Workers’ Party (PT). Yet just two years after the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff, which many consider a legislative coup, Bolsonaro seized the country’s most powerful office. With a new election approaching, and polls overwhelmingly indicating the electorate’s preference for PT candidate and former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, many fear Bolsonaro will resort to a coup to hold onto power.

In this special limited podcast series from Latin America-based journalist Michael Fox, produced in partnership with The Real News Network and the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), we’ll take listeners on a journey to understand Brazil’s turn toward fascism. ​This is the story of Bolsonaro’s rise, his far-right government that set the country ablaze, and how the United States helped him do it. This is Brazil on Fire.

Former FBI Deputy Assistant Director Terry Turchie joined Jesse Watters on FOX News on Thursday following AG Merrick Garland’s disgraceful actions this week storming President Trump’s home and refusing to release any evidence on why it was necessary.

Turchie warned that China may have infiltrated the highest levels of government. This is not such a bold statement considering who is sitting in the Oval Office today and his Chinese business dealings.

President Joe Biden has tapped a FEMA official to lead his administration’s monkeypox response team amid states of emergency across the country. On Tuesday, the White House named regional coordinator Robert Fenton as the response team’s coordinator and CDC official Dr. Demetre Daskalakis as deputy coordinator.

Fenton and Dr. Daskalakis, an expert on health issues affecting the LGBTQ community, will be tasked with spearheading strategy to address the ongoing outbreak. This as comes as California, Illinois and New York have all declared states of emergency as cases rise. The White House has not said if the administration plans to declare a health emergency on a national scale.

“So when it comes to a public health emergency, that is a decision that that is made by Secretary Becerra,” stated White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “That is not made by the president. But, as you know, we are considering every policy option to help end this outbreak that is urgent and that is important to us. But again, that is up to Secretary Sarah to make that decision.”

On Thursday, the CDC made national headlines for rolling back recommendations that individuals who come into contact with a COVID-19-positive person enter into quarantine. This, along with keeping a six-foot distance from others, is no longer necessary, according to the health agency.

In making these amendments, the CDC explained how time and different societal changes led to new guidelines. Thus far, it’s estimated that 95% of people who are at least 16 years old have certain immunity from this virus.

US-China relations descended into a downward spiral in recent years, not least due to the US sending ever more ships to the disputed South China Sea and increasingly selling weapons to Taiwan, which Beijing considers a breakaway province.

China's ambassador to Russia, Zhang Hanhui, has told Sputnik that the US should "wake up" and cease attempts to maintain its global hegemony, which is increasingly waning every day.

"The United States is sick in the head with the Cold War mentality. But it's time for them to wake up and stop their futile attempts to maintain American hegemony," Zhang Hanhui said.

Judicial Watch announced today that YouTube censored a Judicial Watch video about Biden corruption and election integrity issues in the 2020 election. The video titled “Impeach? Biden Corruption Threatens National Security” was falsely determined to be “election misinformation” and removed by YouTube, and Judicial Watch’s YouTube account was suspended for a week. The video featured an interview of Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. Judicial Watch continues to post its video content on its Rumble channel (https://rumble.com/vz7aof-fitton-impeach-biden-corruption-threatens-national-security.html).

Judicial Watch is America’s largest nonpartisan government watchdog group, and the latest YouTube attack limits its ability to share its educational content with its nearly half-million YouTube subscribers. Judicial Watch is also the nation’s leading election integrity organization, and has testified to Congress on the issue. It most recently filed a lawsuit that stopped an extreme gerrymander by Democrats in Maryland. Judicial Watch has also successfully pursued federal litigation in multiple states to clean up millions of dirty names from voter registration lists. YouTube previously deleted a Judicial Watch video at the request of California government officials, according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch last year. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton was also banned by the Chinese communist-controlled Tik-Tok earlier this year. (The Heritage Foundation was also censored by YouTube this week.)

Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman is leading Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) by 57 points among Republican voters likely to vote in the Wyoming GOP primary, Brian Harnisch, the director of the University of Wyoming’s Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center (WYSAC) stated on Thursday.

“When looking only at residents who say they are Republican and likely voters in the primary, we actually see Hageman leading by roughly 50 points,” the Wyoming pollster said about the August 16 primary race.

Harnisch’s poll found that Hageman has maintained her lead over Cheney by about 29 points when voters of all affiliations are in the mix. The poll sampled 562 likely Wyoming voters from all political affiliations from July 25-August 6 and has a four point margin of error.

“Given the unique attention this race is receiving, and the accompanying increases in voter registration and potential party switching, we decided to field this survey to a random sample of all Wyoming residents on cell phones and landlines and work to identify likely voters in the GOP primary,” Harnisch said.

n Internal Revenue Service internal report shows heavily armed agents simulating an assault on a suburban home as part of their training.

The training was featured in the 2021 IRS annual report, which shows agents at the agency’s National Criminal Investigation Training Academy (NCITA), which is located within the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick, Georgia.

The report documents how the agents are given “firearms training” and another image shows agents wearing tactical clothing that says ‘POLICE’ and ‘IRS-CI’.

The Schumer-Manchin Inflation Reduction Act will give $80 billion dollars to the IRS, triggering a hiring spree that will potentially double the agency by 2031.

This initiative is incredibly unpopular with GOP lawmakers and conservative pundits. Fox News host of Life, Liberty & Levin Mark Levin says Republicans should announce a commitment to defund the effort in 2024 if they win both houses and the White House.

“The Republicans should announce NOW that if they win Congress and the presidency in 2024, they will defund those 87,000 IRS agents the Democrats are hiring to threaten, fine, and punish American citizens.”

Despite the fact that no one asked, the World Economic Forum is now advocating for the merger of human and artificial intelligence systems to censor “hate speech” and “misinformation” online before it is even allowed to be posted.

report published to the official WEF website ominously warns about the peril of “the dark world of online harms.”

But the globalist body, run by comic book Bond villain Klaus Schwab, has a solution.

They want to merge the ‘best’ aspects of human censorship and AI machine learning algorithms to ensure that people’s feelings don’t get hurt and counter-regime opinions are blacklisted.

“By uniquely combining the power of innovative technology, off-platform intelligence collection and the prowess of subject-matter experts who understand how threat actors operate, scaled detection of online abuse can reach near-perfect precision,” states the article.

Webmaster addition: The truth is hate speech to those who live by lies!

Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump and daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, has a stark warning for the American people.

She spoke to Fox News host Tucker Carlson and warned that if the FBI could do this to the former President of the United States they could do it to anyone.

“I have spoken to my father-in-law and I got to tell you, you know, he’s as shocked as anybody, I think. For someone and anyone, quite frankly, who loves this country and believes in America, this should shake you to your core, what has happened today. This is a very clear demarcation in the history of America. Never before, as many of your guests have already talked about, Will, have we seen something like this happen where an unannounced raid by the FBI is conducted on a former president of the United States,” she said.

“Think about this. If this is what they’re able to do to the former president of the United States, think about what they could do to you, to anybody in America. The bottom line here is that these documents that have been in question have been, everybody’s been cooperating,” the former president’s daughter-in-law.

According to the OED, a “mythos” is a “traditional or recurrent narrative theme or pattern; a standard plot in literature.” For many, the Holocaust Mythos conjures up the hope of universal redemption from the absolute evils of racism, anti-Semitism, and militant White nationalism. Arising out of the allegedly planned extermination of the Jewish people by “Nazi” Germany and its collaborators, the story has acquired canonical status in officially-constructed “memory cultures” throughout the West. In Canada, where the politically correct Trudeau regime clearly craves recognition as a humanitarian superpower, the government has followed in the footsteps of Germany and several other European states by enshrining the official narrative in the Criminal Code, s. 319.

Obviously, Geico plans to sell insurance in California, but just not with real people manning real offices and - presumably - taking real checks or (worse) real paper money as payments. Better to  just go online, and use your debit card to use electronic blips to pay for insurance that itself is issued in a policy of electronic blips.

Why maintain those costly store fronts with real people?

And, should you have an accident, you can call their customer-non-service hotline, talk to a really friendly representative (if you're lucky enough to get one) in Mumbai or Calcutta, and a robot in Sacramento (if you're unlucky), who will send out a robot agent to assess the damage to your vehicle...and....

... well, you get the picture.
