"Every human being is a unique individual. Any attempt to replace the personal conscience by a collective conscience does violence to the individual and is the first step toward totalitarianism." -- Hermann Hesse - Author (1877-1962)

This will be the second time Temu has spent millions of dollars for an ad spot at a high-profile football event. Its first Super Bowl commercial last year featured the tagline, “Shop like a billionaire,” highlighting a business model of swaying customers with ultra-discounted merchandise predominantly sourced from China.

In a Feb. 10 letter to CBS and Paramount Global, the attorneys general said they have reason to believe that Temu is selling products made with forced labor.

“Congressional investigators believe Temu is illegally selling products made by forced labor in an area of China in which the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is committing genocide,” they wrote in the letter, first reported by Daily Wire.

“CBS should not elevate a company profiting from forced labor and genocide during America’s biggest game.”

Claire's Observations:  Folks, this is a "pot... kettle.... black" moment, on behalf of American corporations, which hate the price points at which TEMU is able to sell its products.  So let's focus, for a moment,  on large American corporations doing the same things.  From corporateaccountabilitylab.org, we have the following statement: "Immigrants in detention

"Like pre-trial defendants, civil detainees cannot be forced to work under the Thirteenth Amendment loophole allowing slavery “as a punishment for crime,” as they have not been convicted of a crime. However, federal immigration detention centers rely on the labor of civil immigrant detainees to lower their operating costs. The large prison corporations running the centers – like CoreCivic and GEO Group – are currently facing lawsuits, alleging that they employ deprivation schemes, where detained immigrants are forced to choose between living without basic necessities or working for sub-minimum wages, and then are threatened with punishment for refusing to work. 

Public Information on Prison Labor Supply Chains

Due to the lack of transparency in corporate supply chains and the inaccessibility of state revenue data, it is generally difficult to trace the goods and services produced by prison labor."

And just who ARE the US corporations, taking advantage of this loophole?!?!?  You may be in for a little bit of a surprise here, but let's go: From an article taken from the Maltese  justice initiatives,

http://maltajusticeinitiative.org/12-major-corporations-benefiting-from-the-prison-industrial-complex-2/

These corporations are:  McDonalds; Wendy's; Walmart; Starbucks; Sprint; Verizon;Victoria's Secret; Fidelity Investments; JC Penny; Kmart; American Airlines:  and Avis.

ANY QUESTIONS AS TO WHY US CORPORATIONS HATE TEMU?!?  You just got your answer right here!!!!!

"NATO was busted until I came along. I said, everybody’s going to pay," said Trump during a Saturday campaign rally in South Carolina. "They said, ‘Well, if we don’t pay, are you still going to protect us?’ I said, ‘Absolutely not.’ They couldn’t believe the answer."

"One of the presidents of a big country stood up and said, ‘Well, sir, if we don’t pay, and we’re attacked by Russia, will you protect us?’ I said, ‘You didn’t pay? You’re delinquent?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ ‘Let’s say that happened. No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want.’ You got to pay. You got to pay your bills."

 

Claire's Observations:  This is simple math, folks; if NATO members want any kind of "military protection" from the US, they should pay their fair share, period, end of discussion; if they do not, then they have chosen NOT to embrace US/NATO military protection.  Trump is absolutely correct, in calling out this behaviour from NATO allies, who want the protection, but will not pay what they owe for that protection.

On Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas had the audacity to claim that the Biden administration doesn't bear responsibility for the border crisis, despite, among other things:

  • Terminating the National Emergency at the Southwest border
  • Revoking a Trump-era Executive Order that was designed to ensure there was meaningful enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.
  • Issuing an executive order protecting DACA recipients
  • Unveiling the U.S. Citizenship Act, which would provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., demonstrating intent to reward illegal border crossers with a path to citizenship.
  • Announcing a 100-day moratorium on deportations and immigration enforcement, effectively providing amnesty to criminal and other removable aliens

(It's a really long list...)

And since Biden was sworn in as president in January 2021, there have been at least 7 million encounters near the southern border, while the government deals with a backlog of more than 3 million asylum cases in US courts.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Mayorkas claimed: "It certainly is a crisis. And, well, we don’t bear responsibility for a broken system, and we’re doing a tremendous amount within the system. But fundamentally, Congress is the only one who can fix it."

And of course, zero pushback from the 'journalist' sitting across from him

 

Claire's Observations:  This is utterly bovine excrement on Mayorka's part, and he knows it.  But what is even more telling, is his smug audacity and hubris, to believe that the American public is absolutely "buying it".  We are not, Alejandro; and this is going to be one big, fat  hairy reason why Biden will lose the upcoming election, even with the best cheating the Demonocrats can conjure.

I think this made up word in the meme below perfectly captures the tyrannical billionaire psychopaths who seem to have gained control of the world using their billions, while portraying themselves as the saviors of humanity.

Whenever I see the term Foundation related to one of these psychopaths, I know that Foundation is nothing more than a front to achieve their evil agenda.

And if ever their was a poster boy for philanthropaths across the world, it would be Mister depopulation/vaccine pusher/farmer Bill Gates and his Gates Foundation.

 

Gates, Soros, Bloomberg and the Clintons represent the evil forces in this world, using their wealth, power, and control of the regime media to push their agenda of chaos, death, destruction, and depopulation. They all use their “Charitable” Foundations as a means to their evil ends, while being portrayed by the media they have bought off, as generous philanthropists improving the lives of the poor and downtrodden.

It is all a ruse, easily revealed to anyone willing to dig just below the surface of these Potemkin foundations

The ultimate “good for you” is to be dead. At least that is what it would be if some outside authority, or entity, was watching our human behaviour and assessing what looks to be the “best” for us - meaning that if we are dead, nothing bad can happen to us. I would assume that if we fed all of the information a typical human life creates into a supercomputer, and then asked it “What is the best state of being for a human being” it would spit out, “that it never be born, and if alive, it would be safest, (best, good,) for it to be dead.”

The next notch down from this perfection would be to live in a bubble, literally.

Apparently, there are some people who have no immune systems who have to do this (remember the Seinfeld episode, “The Bubble Boy”?)

Image removed.

The next notch down is to be a recluse, to live on some little patch of land, in a little house, and venture out only into your local neighbourhood to buy fish sticks, Twinkies, and RC Cola.

You would never fly in a plane, and never drive as well.

The next notch down is the spot that most people seem to wish they occupied.

This place in the sun is actually sunless. Or at least as sunless as you can make it. Here we find gobs of sunscreen, dark glasses on cloudy days, heavy coats in the fall, and umbrellas in summer. We find ourselves avoiding nearly everything that can be avoided, except the things, of course, that actually do harm us, like McDonalds’ “Big Macs” and a nice can of Diet Coke. Here we avoid travel to dicey countries (which includes nearly all of them), if we travel at all. We avoid being in the same room with someone who is coughing or sneezing or looking the least bit odd, and we essentially avoid taking any risks whatsoever. Nearly everything is dangerous, and it is best to avoid anything unknown, dubious in nature, or not recommended by the guys and gals in white coats with the antique medical device hanging around their neck.

A person at this level of existence is alive but certainly not living.

Why are people into this?

Well, once again, we can thank Mr. Agenda

The 2024 U.S. presidential election will likely pit former President Donald J. Trump against current President Joseph Biden in an epic rematch of the 2020 election.  As most Americans know, in 2020, the Democrats and their allies on the far left reached deep into their bag of dirty tricks to put Biden in the White House.  They will undoubtedly pull out all of the stops yet again in 2024.  This time, however, far more people are watching and are aware of the grifts being run in our elections by the left. 

With so many election integrity groups and concerned citizens watching this time around, what will the Democrats do to tilt the results in their favor? 

They have quite a few arrows in their quiver, but virtually every trick relies on one thing: dirty voter rolls.

The United States government would have you believe the military base in Jordan where three soldiers were killed in a drone strike is a mere "logistics support base." In truth, the facility also serves as a base for US drones used to conduct reconnaissance and target identification in Syria and Iraq, according to a report from The Intercept's Ken Klippenstein. 

The base in Jordan, which is called Tower 22, is positioned just six miles from the Syrian border, and close to the Al-Tanf base where US servicemembers are based inside Syria. After a Jan. 28 drone attack on Tower 22 killed three soldiers and wounded dozens more, US Central Command described the facility as a "logistics support base" housing some 350 Army and Air Force personnel. 

AFP via Barron's

However, an Air Force airman who was recently stationed at Tower 22 tells The Intercept there's much more to the base than managing supplies:

“To call Tower 22 a logistics support base is complete bullshit. The main purpose of Tower 22 is to operate drones to spy on insurgents in Iraq and Syria, for targeting purposes. The main objective I witnessed was taking out targets.”

According to the airman, intelligence collected in Tower 22's drone operations is used by USAF units at other bases, including Jordan's Muwaffaq Salti Air Base, to carry out airstrikes in the region

As my Irish-Catholic Midwestern grandmammy used to say as she watered her petunias, “when life gives you lemonades, you make a techno-police state aimed at your domestic political opponents.”

“Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is requesting a transcribed interview with a former Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) official for allegedly flagging consumer transactions that had the phrases “TRUMP” or “MAGA” in them

Jordan said the committee had obtained documents showing that FinCEN outlined ‘typologies’ of persons of interest in materials distributed to financial institutions. He said these materials included ‘suggested search terms and Merchant Category Codes (MCCs) for identifying transactions on behalf of federal law enforcement’* after Jan. 6, 2021.”

*Why financial institutions should be enlisted to do federal police work on behalf of the government is a question that might have been asked decades ago, but that ship has sailed. It’s now chalked up to standard operating procedure.

 11 Feb 2024 | In an unusual session held on Super Bowl Sunday, the U.S. Senate voted to move forward a substantial $95 billion aid package that will support Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, with no southern border security provisions. The vote garnered support from RINOs, with a final tally of 67-27. The vote came in response to Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.)'s steadfast refusal to expedite voting on the bill, which he vehemently criticized as "rotten" and detrimental to national interests... Eighteen Republican senators [useless eaters, one and all] supported the Ukraine war funding: Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME), John Cornyn (R-TX), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Kennedy (R-LA), Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), John Thune (R-SD), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Roger Wicker (R-MS), and Todd Young (R-IN).

 

Claire's Observations:  Of course, the Senate did this on a Sunday, when the public focus was everywhere else but fiscal legislation!!  How vilely calculating and irresponsible on the part of the Senate.  May this "Frankenlegislation" die a thousand deaths in the House!!

“If race and gender are your basis for selecting someone for a job, and the identity of your party is tied to that temple of identity politics, then they will risk looking hypocritical if they sideline her after they sideline Biden. And I do think Michelle Obama offers them a convenient path out of that problem, somebody who checks the boxes that they need to have checked per their own ideology, while also selecting an alternative to Biden that they may view as more palatable in a general election . . . it’s looking increasingly like it’s not going to be Biden as the nominee. And I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination,” Ramaswamy said.

Angela McCullough, the acting deputy chief operating officer for the Federal Aviation Administration, (FAA) revealed RACIST motivations for hiring and firing pilots. In a Zoom call with senior officials from the FAA’s Flight Program Operation division, Angela McCullough said that flight operations are "white male dominated" and asked her team to envision a different future.

The senior FAA officials talked about implementing DEI Programs in the aviation industry. DEI is a policy that stands for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. These policies are being implemented across corporate America. Billions of dollars are being pumped into these programs, enforcing racist goals and twisted initiatives that promote transgenderism.

In August, Ali Bongo, then-president of the Central African nation of Gabon, made a startling revelation to a top White House aide: During a meeting at his presidential palace, Bongo admitted he had secretly promised Chinese leader Xi Jinping that Beijing could station military forces on Gabon’s Atlantic Ocean coast.

Alarmed, U.S. principal deputy national security adviser Jon Finer urged Bongo to retract the offer, according to an American national security official. The U.S. considers the Atlantic its strategic front yard and sees a permanent Chinese military presence there—particularly a naval base, where Beijing could rearm and repair warships—as a serious threat to American security.

“Any time the Chinese start nosing around a coastal African country, we get anxious,” a senior U.S. official said.

The charged exchange between Bongo and Finer in Libreville, Gabon’s capital, was just one skirmish in the great-power maneuvering between the U.S. and China in Africa. China is conducting a backroom campaign to secure a naval base on the continent’s western shores, American officials say. And, for more than two years, the U.S. has been running a parallel effort to persuade African leaders to deny the People’s Liberation Army Navy a port in Atlantic waters.

 

Claire's Observations:  Why does China's maneuvering in Africa appear to have the USA constantly on the back foot?!?  That is the question  which really needs to be answered out loud here.

In an exclusive poll conducted by IFOP, the National Rally (RN) candidate Marine Le Pen is predicted to win the presidency in the second round of voting against Gabriel Attal in 2027. It is the first time any poll has shown her securing victory and becoming president of the nation.

 

In the same poll, if she were to face off against Édouard Philippe, she would tie him with 50 percent of the vote.

The groundbreaking poll, where she earned 51 percent of the vote against Attal, who serves as the current prime minister in the Macron government, has even garnered front-page coverage in France.

In July 2022, political scientist Jérôme Fourquet told Le JDD:

“We can’t rule out a Marine Le Pen victory in 2027. Recent figures published by his institute, Ifop, seem to corroborate this prediction.”

According to the study, Marine Le Pen is predicted to beat Gabriel Attal in the second round of the presidential election in 2027 for the first time, with 51 percent versus 49 percent for Attal.

The leader of the RN group in the French National Assembly is also neck and neck with Édouard Philippe, the current mayor of Le Havre and former prime minister, with 50 percent of voting intentions.

 

In addition, she is well ahead of the far-left Jean-Luc Mélenchon, with 64 percent of the expected vote.

The poll is, so far, the first time she has performed so well, and only time will tell if her popularity continues to grow, especially with three years before the next presidential election.

However, it is worth noting that Marine Le Pen achieved an unprecedented score in both the second and first rounds of the last presidential election.

She obtained 42 percent of the vote against Emmanuel Macron, a result that contrasts sharply with the 17.79 percent obtained by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in the second round in 2002

Claire's Observations:  The French Government, like so many of their brother and sister Euro States, have done this to themselves, and need to acknowledge  the incredible costs, culturally; financially, and in every way possible , of unfettered illegal immigration, and turn this around before the next round of national elections. Otherwise, Le Pen is likely to sweep the next set of national elections, and other parties will simply need to go home.  The French people are justifiably angry at the costs of illegal immigration, at every level.  You have a massive increase in crime; drugs; and people who just cannot function at an appropriate level before they can be hired, and are undercutting wages big time.  If you were a French hourly worker, how would you feel about someone taking your place in a factory line for 40% less than you were previous making?!?  Most probably, not very positively.

"Oh What A Tangled Web Biden Weaves, When He First Practices To Deceive"

Image removed.

by Tyler Durden

Sunday, Feb 11, 2024 - 10:40 AM

Authored by Victor Davis Hanson,

Joe Biden and his White House handlers continue to peddle misinformation if not lies about his removal of classified files...

The worst is that Biden - supposedly so unlike Trump - came forward willingly as soon as he realized that he had unlawfully, but inadvertently, removed and possessed classified files. And thus he cooperated fully and promptly with federal authorities.

The truth is far, far different.

Image removed.

Biden removed files improperly both as a Senator and Vice President.

He held some of them in his unlawful possession for perhaps at least 14 years without a word to authorities, dating back at least to his departure from the Senate on January 15, 2009 when he resigned to become Vice President—or if not longer over his some 36-year Senate career.

In fact, in 2017 Biden was fully aware that he had wrongly removed these classified files. As Hur noted, there is a taped conversation on record between Biden and his ghostwriter to just that effect. Biden, at home in Virginia, was recorded as remarking, “I just found all the classified stuff downstairs”.

And yet Biden apparently did nothing. He never came forward to any federal authorities for nearly the next five years.

So given that knowledge, why did the attorneys belatedly disclose Biden’s possession of the files on November 2, 2022? Civic virtue? Altruism? Respect for the law?

Hardly.

Otherwise, Biden would have disclosed his unlawful possession at any time during either the intervening prior years when he was a private citizen or during the first 18 months of his presidency, when he knowingly still possessed classified files and still did nothing about it.

In truth, Biden would likely never have come forward, save for one insurmountable problem: Merrick Garland had likely decided to appoint Jack Smith as a special prosecutor to investigate the Trump files that the FBI had swooped into Mar-a-Lago looking for 3 months earlier on August 8, 2022.

In other words, knowing that Smith or a generic special counsel would very quickly be appointed (Smith was sworn in a little over two weeks later, on November 18, 2022), suddenly Biden and Co. preempted that announcement, in fear that Biden had done virtually the same thing as Trump—albeit without presidential declassification power and for at least 14 years in possession of classified files.

With Israel on the verge of invading Gaza's southernmost city, Egypt is warning that such a move could trigger a suspension of the treaty that has maintained peace between the two countries since 1979, the Wall Street Journal reports. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday directed the Israeli Defense Forces to plan the evacuation of the city of Rafah, which lies on Gaza's southern border with Egypt and reportedly holds more than a million refugees already forced from their homes elsewhere in the 25-mile-long strip. 

One particularly sensitive slice of real estate is the so-called Philadelphi Route or Philadelphi Corridor, which stretches nine miles along the Gaza-Egypt border. Diplomatic accords establish limits on the number of troops that either Israel or Egypt can position in several delineated zones along and near the border, and certainly don't authorize large numbers of Israeli troops and armored vehicles. 

In late December, Netanyahu said the Philadelphi Route "has to be in our hands" if Gaza is to be effectively and permanently demilitarized. In January, an Egyptian official said, "It must be strictly emphasized that any Israeli move in this direction will lead to a serious threat to Egyptian-Israeli relations." 

Image removed.

While an Egyptian diplomatic delegation visited Tel Aviv on Friday to discuss the situation in Gaza, Mexican Egyptian President Sisi has rejected several phone calls from Netanyahu over recent weeks, sources tell the Journal

The threat that large numbers of Palestinian refugees could soon be pouring across the border raises many deep concerns for Egypt. Perhaps more than the challenge of managing a humanitarian crisis, if displaced Palestinians launch attacks on the IDF from Egypt, that could trigger Israeli retaliatory strikes across the border. If Israel doesn't allow the Palestinians to return, tensions between Israel and Egypt would be sharply increased for years to come.  

Nor does Egypt want to be seen as facilitating an ethnic cleansing of Gaza by Israel -- an option that was presented by Israel's intelligence ministry in the wake of the Oct 7 Hamas invasion of southern Israel, and embraced by various Israeli officials. 

Since the war began, Egypt has been reinforcing its border with Gaza, building a concrete, barbed-wire-topped wall that extends six meters into the ground below it, while also boosting surveillance capabilities, and moving tanks and armored vehicles into the vicinity. The Israel-Hamas war is proving costly for Egypt in other ways, as Suez Canal traffic has plummeted some 30%.  

Egypt's warning comes alongside expressions of concern by a variety of countries both inside and outside of the region:

  • "Military operations right now would be a disaster for those people, and it’s not something that we would support," said US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby.
  • “Invading Rafah… which is the last refuge for hundreds of thousands of civilians whom the brutal Israeli aggression displaced will have [grave] consequences,” said the Saudi foreign ministry.
  • "Deeply concerned about the prospect of a military offensive in Rafah - over half of Gaza's population are sheltering in the area," tweeted UK foreign secretary David Cameron.  
  • "The people of Gaza cannot disappear into thin air...[it is a] "humanitarian catastrophe in the making," said German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock. 
  • A Rafah invasion would create an "unspeakable humanitarian catastrophe," said EU Foreign Minister Joseph Borrell. 
  • Israel's plan "threatens to cause the loss of more innocent life and exacerbate the humanitarian catastrophe in the Gaza Strip," said the United Arab Emirates foreign ministry.

However, if past is prologue, watch for the Israeli government to disregard the protests of its partners and benefactors -- protests that may be offered primarily for domestic consumption.  

Claire's Observations: This is about to turn into a genocidal bloodbath, courtesy if the Israeli government and the IDF. And predictably, Biden is utterly  impotent to stop Netanyahu from doing precisely what hr wants to do, which is exterminate every Palestinian still breathing.  look for an horrific uptick in assassinations; disease; and starvation among all Palestinians in Gaza; Lebanon; and the West Bank.  This is going to be a blitzkrieg, and the number of dead, and catastrophically wounded, is going to accelerate massively.

In a congressional hearing last November on restoring trust in science, CDC Director Mandy Cohen kept evading questions on whether she would bring back mask mandates for toddlers.

 

“We have a lot of different tools to protect our children,” Dr. Cohen said during her cagey response.

Six days later, a BMJ journal published a study that foundmask recommendations for children are not supported by scientific evidence.

Image removed.

Director Cohen’s scientific bumbling continued last week as her agency began fighting with CDC’s own researchers over another contentious declaration: N95 respirators work better than surgical masks. In recent years, mask advocates have shifted goalposts and demanded N95 respirators, which they claim perform better than surgical masks at stopping the COVID virus.

Not true say CDC’s own scientists, according to CDC documents I uncovered.

During a presentation last summer, a CDC expert stated there was no difference between N95 respirators and masks in stopping viruses. These findings have been supported by CDC scientists in a study CDC published on the agency’s website last November—just a few weeks before Director Cohen testified before Congress.

To shut down this controversy, CDC wrote a blog last week warning researchers that to suggest that facemasks and respirators are the same “is not scientifically correct.”

Claire 's Observations:  there is no better time to "Follow the money", as Deep Throat told Woodward and Bernstein, during the Watergate fiasco.  What companies are making a "killing" (sometimes literally) by supporting these items as "mandatory/necessary" to prevent the spread of the virus?!?  Look at their P/L statements, and you will have a pretty good idea of which companies are "cashing in " on these items.

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had a mini-meltdown after being exposed during the Tucker Carlson-Vladimir Putin interview for sabotaging the Ukrainian peace deal.

During the interview, Putin confirmed reporting that first emerged last year about Johnson’s role in prolonging the war.

David Arahamiya, the leader of Ukraine’s ruling party, revealed that Johnson had scuppered a peace deal that would have put an end to hostilities just a few months after the Russian invasion.

Putin confirmed this when he stated, “He had fixed his signature to some of the provisions, not to all of it. He put his signature and then he himself said, we were ready to sign it, and the war would have been over long ago. 18 months ago. However, Prime Minister Johnson came, talk to us out of it and we missed that chance. Well, you missed it. You made a mistake.”

Johnson was clearly rattled by the revelation.

Claire's Observations:  Typical British diplomatic deceptions; I am disgusted, but not at all surprised.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was taken back to the hospital on Sunday afternoon, this time "for symptoms suggesting an emergent bladder issue," a Pentagon spokesman said in a statement.

"At this time, the Secretary is retaining the functions and duties of his office," Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder, the Pentagon press secretary, said. "The Deputy Secretary is prepared to assume the functions and duties of the Secretary of Defense, if required. Secretary Austin traveled to the hospital with the unclassified and classified communications systems necessary to perform his duties."

More information will be released "as soon as possible," Ryder said.

He said that the White House, Congress and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had all been notified.

The defense secretary previously underwent a minimally invasive surgical procedure for prostate cancer on Dec. 22, which led to a urinary tract infection and serious intestinal complications. He was hospitalized again on Jan. 1, but the White House didn't learn of it for three days -- secrecy that sparked intense scrutiny and criticism

Claire's Observations:  I am hoping that the current emergency can be treated safely and effectively on an outpatient basis; if it cannot, Austin needs to immediately resign, and name his 2nd in command as Secretary of Defense. This is very concerning,  and needs to be addressed immediately.,
