Thought for the day

"If there is one basic element in our Constitution, it is civilian control of the military." -- Harry S. Truman

No one is happier about Liz Cheney’s loss in Wyoming than former President Donald Trump; Cheney was blown out by Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman who was up 32 points with 80% of the vote counted before midnight. But in her concession speech, Cheney escalated her feud with Trump.

“We must be very clear-eyed about the threat we face,” she said, repeating a previous pledge to “do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office.”

Trump torched Cheney’s “tiny” concession speech on TRUTH Social.

“Liz Cheney’s uninspiring concession speech, in front of a ‘tiny’ crowd in the Great State of Wyoming, focused on her belief that the 2020 Presidential Election was not, despite massive and conclusive evidence to the contrary, Rigged & Stolen,” Trump wrote. “It was, and that’s not even counting the fact that many election changes, in numerous States, were not approved by State Legislatures, an absolute must. Liz Cheney is a fool who played right into the hands of those who want to destroy our Country!”

o people are driving crazier on the road these days and you have to wonder if it’s because they know they know on some level that they’re being systematically exterminated. The overall level of panic out there in the world is seriously intensifying.

Those seeking answers to these and other questions about existence and belief are developing the impression that their government is definitely trying to kill them. When you ask this question to some official who might be able to answer it, you are told that this is not a question you are allowed to ask, so you are left to ponder those statistics of all those babies dying in the womb on your own.

So this epistle is about an aging writer trying to keep up with a series of shocks that have knocked the human race back in their seats — eyes wide, breathing labored, neighbors frequently dying — awaiting the next planned catastrophe that will further diminish their lives. And just when you thought I might have no more bad news to deliver . . .

But first the good news: the new radio show is going well, 22 episodes into the journey. People are listening, the numbers are good, the atmosphere on the new network — — is positive. Everybody’s working hard, and working for nothing but the opportunity to tell the truth.

The name of my show — Kaminski Goes Ballistic — is better described as an old guy breathing hard shouting the same warnings he’s been bellowing for 20 years. These messages state that we are controlled by a foreign power sabotaging what freedom we thought we had, and we better do something about it, or we don’t have much longer to live. No exaggeration.

Factories in China’s southwest have shut down after reservoirs used to generate hydropower ran low in a worsening drought, adding to economic strains at a time when President Xi Jinping is trying to extend his position in power.

Companies in Sichuan province – including makers of solar panels, cement and urea – closed or reduced production after they were ordered to ration power for up to five days, according to news reports Wednesday.

The winds of war are now blowing around the world. One day we will look back on these days with longing as one would look back on the gentle breezes of summer as the hurricane blows outside.

The winter season of the fourth turning is increasing with intensity as most people are fooled into believing that summer is just a few days off. When the winds become deadly and the snow begins to pile up, many will not be prepared to care for themselves. They will find themselves helpless and unprepared for this new weather system. Many will die and many more will suffer as they are cut off from the supplies and materials they depend on for normal living. They will become immobile and have little communication to tell them what to do. When the weather has them at their most vulnerable, the wolves will begin to show up at their door.

It cannot be over emphasized as to the amount of danger America is facing. We are being systematically cut off and separated from our allies and will eventually stand alone to face the fury of the hurricane that approaches. We are currently being set up to take a fall that some hope will be the end of this nation as we know it. The treason and treachery being perpetrated on this nation is a result of the mutation of the population from ants to grasshoppers. We are about to get exactly what we voted for and most people do not understand what that means.

Excess Deaths In 2021 and 2022 HERE. The insurance industry cannot go on taking these kinds of financial hits – especially when investment returns are so dismal and the market is trending down. It is the estimate of this writer that the government will step in to save the life insurance industry with subsidization of their losses (with the caveat that they have to stop publishing death statistics), or else the industry will quit paying out claims to anyone who has taken experimental medical treatments (which is what the COVID 19 vaccine is by their own admission).

MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance defined Republicans as an “insurgency,” comparing them to multiple terror organizations and suggesting they’d have to be fought to prevent them from “killing” their neighbors.

Nance’s explicit calls for a war against Republicans came during a recent episode of the MSNBC talk show “Zerlina,” in which he was promoting his book, “They Want to Kill Americans: The Militias, Terrorists, and Deranged Ideology of the Trump Insurgency.”

Just a normal day over at MSNBC.

He began by claiming “30% of the population of the United States” fall under the umbrella of “white extremism,” as evidenced by the events of January 6th.

“To characterize that, to understand what kind of terrorism we might be dealing with, you have to label it as white extremism because we have 30% of the population of the United States who no longer believe in the democratic norms that we established in the founding of the country,” Nance explained.

Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter both were involved in stories about having lost the nuclear codes, a 2010 report from ABC News revealed.

ABC had reported on a memoir published by Gen. Hugh Shelton, who served under Clinton as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff between 1997 and 2001, and a story about the former President having lost the codes for “months.”

“At one point during the Clinton administration the codes were actually missing for months,” Shelton wrote. “That’s a big deal — a gargantuan deal.”

Representative Liz Cheney lost her Wyoming primary election to Republican Harriet Hageman, a Trump-backed challenger, in an embarrassing fashion Tuesday.

Cheney was down by over 30 percentage points by the time she strolled out for her concession speech.

A speech, by the way, that kept in line with her consistent theme of a delusional anti-Trumper more concerned with drama and attention than the people she represents.

In February, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine after the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics appealed for help to defend them from intensifying attacks by Ukrainian troops.

The Russian Armed Forces as well as allied forces of the People's Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk are continuing to advance as part of the special operation in Ukraine. However, Kiev's forces persist in their attacks on the territory of Donbass, targeting civilians.

Earlier this month, the head of the Zaporozhye region signed a decree on holding a referendum to join Russia.

Western mainstream press previously lauded Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as a guardian of democracy. However, as ex-Donald Trump adviser Steve Cortes observes in his Newsweek op-ed, its tone is changing.

The Zelensky narrative used by western media "has palpably shifted" over the last few weeks, according to Steve Cortes, a US political consultant, market strategist and former Trump campaign adviser.

This shift particularly comes in relation to the latest CBS News report which alleged that "much of the billions of dollars of military aid that the US is sending to Ukraine doesn't make it to the front lines." Cortes also cites the New York Times' Thomas L. Friedman, who admitted earlier this month that "there is deep mistrust between the White House and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine — considerably more than has been reported."

Concerns also appear to be simmering over Zelensky firing his prosecutor general and intelligence chief on July 18 without explanations. "I have still not seen any reporting that convincingly explains what that was all about," Friedman wrote. "It is as if we don’t want to look too closely under the hood in Kiev for fear of what corruption or antics we might see, when we have invested so much there."

Similarly, German newspaper Die Welt once again shed light on Zelensky's offshore network schemes on August 3, as exposed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) in October 2021. It also revealed Kiev's apparent role in cancelling a Ukrainian documentary "Offshore 95 – President Zelensky's Secret Deals" last year.

Nuclear tensions are rising more and more. The US military said on August 16 that it had conducted a test with the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. In the official statement, it was also stated that the operation was already previously scheduled, having been postponed in order to avoid increasing tensions with Beijing during China’s show of force near Taiwan earlier this month. For some unexplained reason, Washington considered the current moment to be the most “appropriate” for the maneuver.

The missile was launched from the Vandeberg Space Force base in California and traveled about 6,760 km. Military spokespeople indicated that the self-propelled projectile was unarmed and equipped with a test reentry vehicle. Additionally, the statement makes clear that the mission was intended to demonstrate the readiness of US nuclear forces.

“Air Force Global Strike Command Airmen launched an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile equipped with a test re-entry vehicle from Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, Aug. 16 at 12:49 a.m. Pacific Time to demonstrate the readiness of U.S. nuclear forces and provide confidence in the lethality and effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear deterrent”, the statement says.

Manufactured by Boeing, the Minuteman III is a missile with nuclear capability and high destructive power. Currently, this missile is a key element in the US military’s strategic arsenal. The weapon has a range capability of over 9,660 km and can travel at a speed of approximately 24,000 km per hour. Minuteman III is also considered a part of the so-called American “nuclear triad”, along with the submarine-launched ballistic missile Trident and nuclear weapons carried by long-range strategic bombers.

The new NATO 2030 Strategic Concept indicates a disturbing change in the Alliance’s strategic orientation. As a result, provocations towards Moscow, as well as Beijing, are escalating, especially after the former was labelled by NATO as “the most significant and direct threat to Allies’ security and to peace and stability in the Euro-Atlantic area.” In this context, the Atlantic Alliance urged member states to allocate more resources for military purposes, as well as to increase the rapid reaction forces on its Eastern European front from 40,000 troops to a staggering 300,000. This is in addition to escalations in the South China Sea.

NATO’s Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, explained that, unlike the previous document of the same title, which was adopted in Lisbon in 2010, there are no longer any guidelines on cooperation with Moscow, not even in the areas of arms control, the fight against terrorism or drug trafficking. Relations with Russia are continuously deteriorating as the West instigates less cooperation and more conflict. 

The behaviour of NATO’s main members – the US and the United Kingdom, as well as Germany and France, in Ukraine, but also in the Caucasus and Central Asia, signify that Russia is the most direct threat to Western hegemony despite China’s massive economic rise. Therefore, there is nothing epochal about the positioning on NATO’s eastern borders since it is a logical epilogue of a process that has been ongoing since at least 2014. Arguments can be made though that this process began with the Syrian War in 2011, or perhaps even as early as 2008 with the NATO-instigated Russo-Georgia War.

Scientists have revealed plans to bring back the Tasmanian Tiger, almost 100 years after it went extinct.  

The Tasmanian Tiger, also known as the tyhlacine, roamed the Earth for millions of years before being wiped out by human hunting in the 1930s. 

Now, Colossal Biosciences, a startup based in Dallas, Texas, has announced plans to start the 'de-extinction' of the species, using stem cell technology. 

'Bringing back the thylacine will not only return the iconic species to the world, but has the potential to re-balance the Tasmanian and broader Australian ecosystems, which have suffered biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation since the loss of the predator earlier this century,' Colossal Biosciences explained. 

Webmaster addition: There continue to be reports of thylacine sightings in the wild to the present day.

After Dr. Deborah Birx made a number of statements admitting that the “experts” oversold the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine in that it would significantly help prevent infection, PolitiFact’s Yacob Reyes wrote a lengthy article rating is “false” that Birx ever flip-flopped on the issue herself in an article whose conclusion is contradicted by its own sources, while also ignoring everyone else that flip-flopped, such as Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci.  

Birx admitted that the experts overpromised on the COVID vaccine a number of times in mid-2022. During a Fox News appearance on July 22, she told Neil Cavuto that “I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection. And I think we overplayed the vaccines, and it made people then worry that it's not going to protect against severe disease and hospitalization. It will.”

The next day, Birx testified before Congress.

While facing questioning from Rep. Jim Jordan, Birx admitted that “we knew early on, in January of 2021, in late December 2020, that reinfection is occurring after natural infection. Once you see that - and I want to make it clear to you all, and to anyone that is listening - this is not meables, mumps, and rubella - those vaccines produce long term immunity, and can create herd immunity." 

Jordan asked twice “When the government told us that the vaccinated couldn’t transmit it, was that a lie, or was that a guess?” - prompting an “I don’t know,” and “I think it was hope that the vaccines would work in that way.” No denial was made of the government’s false narrative. 

This is in direct contradiction to Birx’s prior public statements, but not if you accept Reyes’ framing, who is forced to construct and burn down a strawman to pretend Birx didn’t flip flop or conceal information from the American public.
