COMING UP SHORT THIS MONTH.
Thought for the day
"But certainly for the present age, which prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original, representation to reality, the appearance to the essence . . . only illusion is sacred, truth has become profane. Nay, sacredness is held to be enhanced in proportion as truth decreases and illusion increases, so that the highest degree of illusion comes to be the highest degree of sacredness." -- Ludwig Feuerbach, (1804-1872), Preface to the second edition of The Essence of Christianity"Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber." -- Plato
Despite general disappointment about the pace of Special Counsel John Durham’s continued investigation into the origins Russian election interference narrative spun in the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election, one of the most crucial developments in the probe to date took a huge step forward. Following a watershed moment in which Durham’s move to unseal a motion in limine against Igor Danchenko revealed the primary source of the Steele Dossier was a paid FBI informant, the defendant in the case following the first indictment from the Special Counsel’s investigation failed in having a last-ditch effort to have the charges levied against him dismissed.
U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga denied a Motion to Dismiss filed earlier in the month over the Labor Day Weekend by Danchenko’s attorneys. The crux of their argument in the motion was that former Special Counsel and FBI Director Robert Mueller’s investigation of Danchenko and subsequent omission of any recommendation to charge him in the Mueller Report was tantamount to proof of his innocence. “Approximately thirty-four individuals were charged by Mueller’s office, including several for providing false statements to investigators. Mr. Danchenko was not among them,” defense attorneys wrote in a filing over the holiday weekend. In spite of their best efforts, Danchenko’s attorneys failed to make a compelling argument in the eyes of Judge Tenga, whose denial of their motion means that the defendant is destined to have his day in court.
First it was Chevon's CEO reaching out to warn President Biden about the administration's action again oil companies. Now, it's Exxon warning the President about limiting fuel exports.
Exxon is "pushing back" against the idea of reducing U.S. fuel exports, telling President Biden's Energy Department this week that such actions would lead to continued volatility in oil prices globally, and at the pump domestically, according to a new report by the Wall Street Journal. Exxon said that "the oil industry should not slow fuel shipments in favor of putting more in storage tanks", the Journal report says.
Exxon argued that cutting exports would lead to a glut in the Gulf Coast which would then, in turn, prompt output cuts.
Fears of nuclear war are increasing across the West as Russia mobilizes hundreds of thousands of troops and declares annexation of parts of Ukraine. Meanwhile, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Ukraine is applying for membership in NATO. These two developments could be the most significant escalation since the war's start.
Today's developments are a sobering reminder that nuclear war threats are mounting. Retired Virginia State Senator and retired Marine Col. Richard Black addressed members of the US Congress in an open letter on Tuesday about "globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear Armageddon."
A new breed of local prosecutors has taken District Attorney offices around the country by storm in a coordinated campaign that is tearing at the foundations of American justice system. The ideology that underpins their agenda is antagonistic to the traditional conception of criminal justice and, if taken to its logical conclusion, demands its destruction, several experts told The Epoch Times.
Such DAs have been variously called “rogue prosecutors,” “de-prosecutors,” or “Soros prosecutors,” based on the fact that progressive billionaire George Soros has prolifically funded their campaigns and support structures. They started to enter the scene around 2014 and have quickly become a major power block, controlling at least 75 DA offices with jurisdiction over one in every five Americans, including half of the country’s 50 most populous cities, according to research by Sean Kennedy, a criminal justice expert at the Maryland Public Policy Institute, a liberty-oriented think tank.
“They believe that the criminal justice system is excessively punitive and racially biased and that it is irredeemable,” he said.
A California libertarian group has sued the Biden administration over its plan to cancel student debt, calling it an illegal overreach which will end up taxing some Americans whose debt is forgiven.
"Congress did not authorize the executive branch to unilaterally cancel student debt," said attorney Caleb Kruckenberg of the Pacific Legal Foundation, which filed the lawsuit - believed to be the first targeting Biden's plan, AP reports. The Sacramento-based legal advocacy group filed the suit in Indiana, which is one of several states that plans to tax those whose debt is canceled by Biden's plan.
Kruckenberg says that it's illegal for the executive branch to create such policy "by press release, and without statutory authority."
(Meanwhile, Biden is yanking student loan forgiveness for more than 750,000 borrowers who took federal government loans that were issued and managed by private lenders)
Economist Peter Navarro, erstwhile adviser to former President Donald Trump, told Epoch TV’s “Crossroads” program in a recent interview that the current stagflationary downturn stalking the U.S. economy is “just the beginning” of America’s economic woes, and that Trump is the one who’s best poised to pull the country out of a dire slump.
Navarro said in the interview that he believes the United States has fallen prey to the destructive force of stagflation—a toxic combination of high inflation and sluggish growth.
“That’s what we’ve got now because of the fecklessness of Joe Biden, the Congress, the Federal Reserve, and this administration,” he said.
There’s been fierce debate about what led to prices accelerating at their fastest pace in decades, eroding purchasing power, and squeezing American households.
The US has slapped new sanctions on Chinese firms related to Iran’s petrochemical and petroleum trade, after years of reports of Chinese tankers engaged in sanctions-busting activity, and at a moment that a finalized restored JCPOA nuclear deal has all but collapsed.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced punitive measures Thursday against two China-based companies, Zhonggu Storage and Transportation Co Ltd and WS Shipping Co Ltd, which stand accused of sanctions evasion.
Swedish officials do not yet know if an undersea power cable that runs between southern Sweden and Poland was damaged when the Nord Stream gas pipelines some 500 meters (547 yards) away ruptured in what Western officials suspect was an act of sabotage.
“Since the cable is not in service, it can´t be determined if the cable is damaged in some way,” Per Kvarnefalk, a spokesman for Sweden´s public power transmission network operator Svenska kraftnat, said late Thursday. “We will therefore perform tests on the cable using special measurement equipment early next week with the aim to determine if the cable is fully functional.”
Svenska kraftnat partly owns the more than 250-kilometer-long high-voltage cable that transmits electricity through the Baltic Sea.
The signing of treaties on the accession of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia is another proof that Ukraine’s Banderite government is a failure, Chairman of the Russian State Duma (the lower house of parliament) Security and Anti-Corruption Committee Vasily Piskaryov told reporters.
"These developments are another proof that Ukraine’s Banderite government is a failure. For three decades, it has been based on savage nationalism, discrimination against Russians and other ethnic groups, as well as on the elimination of its own population and rampant looting of national assets," the lawmaker noted. "Only the denazification and demilitarization of these territories can bring peace and development to millions of people," he added.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky’s statement on his country’s application for NATO’s membership in an accelerated procedure sounds like an invitation to the alliance to plunge into a direct armed conflict with Russia, a senior Russian lawmaker said on Friday.
"Zelensky’s statement on Ukraine’s application for obtaining NATO membership in an accelerated procedure sounds like an invitation to the alliance to plunge into a direct armed conflict with Russia. In other words, to wage a confrontation between leading nuclear powers," Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma (lower parliament house), said. "The only way for Kiev today is to surrender arms and return to the negotiating table. Inly the, the flow of the Kiev regime’s bloody victims will be stopped."
Joe Biden today vowed to ban assault weapons. He really has no idea what he’s saying.
Today Joe Biden said that he is going to ban assault weapons. The gang at the White House clapped when he made this announcement.
Biden really has no idea what he’s saying or what rights he has to ban guns. He really doesn’t know much and the whole world wonders who is really running this country. Biden looked like he didn’t even know where he was and he needed to be carted off by Jill.
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan tried to avoid questions about who benefits from the broken energy ties between Moscow and the European Union when speaking about the Nord Stream incident, the Russian Embassy in Washington said in a statement.
"We took notice of the contradictory statements made by US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan regarding the sabotage on Nord Stream’s international gas pipelines," the statement reads.
"Such statements, as well as Mr. Sullivan's attempt to shift public attention to the alleged risks of physical and cyber attacks on Western infrastructure by Russia, is another example of the unfounded demonization of our country. We see it as a case of russophobia, deeply rooted in Washington, and desire to manipulate public opinion. The urge to ‘sweep under the carpet’ uncomfortable questions about who actually benefits from the break in energy ties between Moscow and European capitals," the embassy added.
US-led Western states have been using terrorist groups under their control to attain their goals, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev said on Friday, urging comprehensive efforts on the part of the CIS special services to counter international terrorism.
"The US-led Western coalition has continued using groups of terrorists and other radicals under their control to achieve their goals, while substituting the real fight against terrorism with declarations of their proactive moves in this sphere," Patrushev said, pointing to the US flirting with Al-Qaeda (outlawed in Russia) in Afghanistan and with the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) in Iraq. Addressing a meeting of CIS security and intelligence chiefs in Moscow, he said: "In these circumstances, practical cooperation should be enhanced between the special services of our countries, including the exchange of information on international terrorist organizations and their plans." He also urged comprehensive and preventive efforts to counteract terrorism.
A recent study in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology discovered that California foster care kids are being medicated with powerful psychotropic drugs, but the adults in charge of the children are not taking the appropriate steps to ensure that the drugs are safe for the kids. Currently, the Child Protective Services (CPS) system, which feeds young children to foster care, is under massive scrutiny nationwide.
The study, entitled “Antipsychotics in the California Foster Care System: A 10-Year Analysis,” found that drugging of foster kids supposedly became less frequent over the course of a decade in California. However, the system continues to use extremely “concerning” methods to medicate the kids with little regard for their safety from side effects. According to our recent NATIONAL FILE article “Exposed: Dead Children in the CPS System Near Bohemian Grove And Pelosi’s Pedophilia Links,” a teenager named Steven Gavin Unangst Jr. died in the Contra Costa County foster care system after taking prescription drugs, prompting his family to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the county.

The Kiev regime committed another terrorist attack against civilians on the territories it lost.
On the morning of September 30, Ukrainian nationalists struck a column of civilian vehicles that was moving to the territory controlled by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The attack took place near the city of Energodar in the Zaporozhie region and resulted in deaths of at least 24 civilians. 36 other people were injured, including one child.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said the US cynically calls Germany, Japan, South Korea and some other countries its allies, although it still essentially occupies them.
"The US has left a terrible imprint on the memory of the people in Korea and Vietnam. Barbaric carpet bombings, use of napalm and chemical weapons. It still essentially occupies Germany, Japan, South Korea and some other countries, but cynically calls them equal allies," Putin said at a ceremony for accepting four new territories into Russia.
He said "the entire world" knows that the leaders of these countries are spied on, including in living quarters. He said it’s a shame how the leaders of some countries "silently and resignedly swallow that rudeness."
The second tranche of more than 550 million euros from the European Investment Bank (EIB) will be disbursed to Ukraine soon, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.
"We held a meeting with EIB Vice President Teresa Czerwinska and the bank's team. We discussed enhancing cooperation and assistance for Ukraine. I thanked [the bank] for allocating 1.59 billion euros. The first tranche was received earlier this month. As Mrs. Czerwinska has said, the second tranche of more than 550 million euros will arrive at the Ukrainian government's request in the near future," Ukrainian media quoted Shmyhal as saying.
The recent cold spell in Europe has led to a seasonal decline in pumping gas into underground gas storage (UGS) facilities, and Latvia has begun offtake amid lower reserves on the continent.
Gazprom's request for pumping Russian gas through Ukraine today has not changed from the previous days and months.
The Gas Transport System Operator of Ukraine, or GTSOU, has accepted a booking from Gazprom today to transport 42.4 million cubic meters of gas through the country against 42.4 mcm the previous gas day, data from GTSOU show.
Capacity was requested only through one of two entry points into Ukraine's Gas Transport System, the Sudzha metering station. A request was not accepted through the Sokhranivka metering station.
Webmaster addition: Whoever blew up the Nord Stream pipelines (and we all know who did it) has given Russia a good motive to simply take all of Ukraine!
Nord Stream AG plans to start assessing the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipeline across the Baltic Sea as soon as it receives the necessary official permits, the pipeline operator said in a press release.
Access to the area of the incidents may be allowed only after the pressure in the gas pipeline has stabilised and the gas leakage has stopped, the company said.
"Until the completion of the damage assessment, it is not possible to predict the timeframe for restoration of the gas transmission infrastructure," it said.
Many people within the United States are hoping for a Republican takeover of Congress in 2022. Most Republicans feel that the party is in a much better position after ousting RINOs like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Cheney, for instance, was the #3 Republican in the House of Representatives. She served in the position of Conference Chair. She was replaced in 2021 by New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik.
Stefanik had the backing of many within the ‘MAGA’ movement. She was even endorsed by Donald Trump. He hosted a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser for her back in January. He was quoted as saying that Stefanik would ‘one day be President.’
Upon investigation of published federal campaign finance data, Launch Liberty has discovered that Stefanik has taken a lot of money from Billionaire William Henry Gates III, better known as Bill Gates.
In fact, Gates has been funding Stefanik for a number of years. As Stefanik ascended through the Republican Party, Bill Gates began to donate to her re-election campaigns. Now she has a real chance at possibly becoming Speaker of the House.
The DOW is currently down more than 2,000 points since Biden took office. The markets have lost $9 trillion in the 3Q alone.
The DOW is now down more than 2,000 points since Biden took office. As of 1:50 pm Friday, September 30, 2022, the DOW stood at barely 29,000 points. During the day the DOW was actually lower than 29,000 points.
On Wednesday night, the live broadcast of the government briefing on the explosions on Nord Stream in Helsinki, Finland, was interrupted when the Finnish Interior Minister, Krista Mikkonen, suddenly collapsed.
Krista was standing at the far end of a row of podiums. She tried to walk away from the podium, and all of the sudden she suddenly fainted out of sight of the cameras. Two of her coworkers went to her aid to help her up.

A wide selection of career fields requires employees to frequently express their thoughts and knowledge through writing. Depending on the range of medications they offer, online pharmacies could be divided into full-range, semi-full, popular, lifestyle, and specialized drugstores. Another reason many pharmacists give much value to pharmacy technician certification is really because it's their protection against possible malpractice lawsuits.

MSNBC is in shambles.
Rachel Maddow, the network’s top host, is only hosting her show once a week while she’s off working on “other projects.” Her ratings have dropped significantly in her absence, as well.
Nicolle Wallace, a supposed “Republican,” has seen her ratings crater. In the last year, her show is down 6 percent in total viewership. Over two years, her show is down 32 percent.
However, far-left host Joy Reid is facing rumors that she may be on her way out.
Reid’s show has plummeted in recent months and, in particular, since it first launched almost two years ago.
“The Reid Out,” which airs at 7 PM ET, barely broke one million viewers.
Since shortly after the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian War in February widespread calls began to emerge in the West to supply the Ukrainian Army and possibly Kiev-aligned militias and contractors with Western main battle tanks to enhance their armoured warfare capabilities. Ukraine has since received tremendous quantities of armour from NATO member states that were formerly members of either the Warsaw Pact or parts of Yugoslavia, primarily T-72s but also more recently T-55s, which have high compatibility with the country’s large armoured forces made up of Soviet-built T-64 and T-72 tanks. The dispatch of Western-built tanks, however, appears increasingly unlikely to materialise despite Western arms shipments to Kiev amounting to tens of billions of dollars, with a number of factors being key to deterring suppliers. The only two classes of main battle tank in production in the West, the German Leopard II and American M1 Abrams, have both reportedly been considered and are in many ways similar designs as both were derived from the failed U.S.-German joint MBT-70 tank in the 1980s.
Four primary factors are expected to prevent the delivery of modern Western tanks to Ukraine for the foreseeable future and limit both the willingness of NATO members to supply such vehicles and the value they would have in the battlefield. The first is the serious threat that deliveries could pose to the Leopard II and M1 Abrams programs due to how much they are relied on by NATO and by Western-aligned states across the world. Tanks are among the easier pieces of equipment to capture due to their frontline roles, as opposed to artillery or aircraft which can still contribute to operations when based far behind friendly lines. The Abrams or Leopard II could thus both provide valuable intelligence to the Russian Military should even a single vehicle be captured, which remains a very significant possibility should they enter the war. While Russia has seen some of its most valuable tanks compromised through capture, with these expected to be passed on to NATO for study, Ukraine's antiquated Cold War era vehicles are of little value to Russia in terms of intelligence.
Vladimir Putin today signed a presidential decree that officially recognized four regions of eastern Ukraine as Russian territory. During his speech to the Russian people, he called America satanic. Meanwhile, Newsweek reported that US Department of Defense war planners are developing contingency plans to strike the Kremlin with missiles to assassinate Mr. Putin.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has announced they are developing an AI tool to unmask anonymous writers.
A press release on Tuesday from the ODNI revealed that the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), their research and development arm, is starting work on the Human Interpretable Attribution of Text Using Underlying Structure program – HIATUS for short.
“Humans and machines produce vast amounts of text content every day,” with “text containing linguistic features that can reveal author identity,” a document from IARPA notes. The HIATUS tool would therefore use AI to identify anonymous writers via features such as “word choice, sentence phrasing [and] organization of information.”
