"Free people can say 'no'. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say 'no'. If someone demands that you do something and you can say 'no' and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied" -- Michael Rivero

A star witness in the Fani Willis case has admitted he was accused of sexual assault by a law firm colleague, contradicting his previous evidence and leaving the judge 'wondering' about earlier testimony he provided on the DA's affair.

Terrence Bradley, a former law partner of Nathan Wade and who represented the Trump prosecutor during his divorce, admitted on Friday afternoon that he resigned from the firm largely because of the allegations made by his co-worker.

The confession opened questions about Bradley's credibility and his knowledge of the romantic relationship between the Georgia DA and Wade, whom Willis hired in the election interference case against Donald Trump

Bradley testified earlier that the reason he left the firm was related to Wade's divorce proceedings and refused to answer what he knew about the relationship between Willis and Wade citing attorney-client privilege.

France’s decision to block the French-language Telegram channel of the TASS news agency shows that they want to stop any information coming from Russia, the embassy in Paris said.

"No sooner had the ink on the Viginum agency’s report on ‘the pro-Russian propaganda network’ dried than the French authorities took action to unveil the objectives of this biased anti-Russian initiative. Access has been denied to the French-language Telegram channel of TASS, the 100-year-old and world-renowned news agency, as well as a number of other online resources, which were mentioned in the document, meant for the francophone audience. It is now totally evident that this Russophobic narrative was designed solely as a pretext to cut off any information coming from Russia," the Russian embassy emphasized.

The embassy pointed out that the French authorities are heading towards "establishing a ‘Ministry of Truth’ (in the dystopian novel ‘1984’ such a ministry is in charge of falsifying historical events) and are trying to authorize themselves to decide on behalf of their citizens what kind of information is suitable for them and which is not."

In the latest signal of his resolve to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States, Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Friday announced that the Lone Star State will build a military base along the Rio Grand at the border city of Eagle Pass. 

Spanning 80-acres, "Forward Operating Base Eagle" will house upwards of 1,800 Texas National Guard soldiers supporting Operation Lone Star, and will be expandable to house 2,300. Texas Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelzer said the camp will have 300 beds by mid-April, and will add another 300 beds every month after that. 

Claire's Observations:  this is a significant escalation, on the part of Texas, and one which  the Bidenistas are going to just hate;  the question is, what will they attempt to do, as this evolves, and how will the state of Texas respond to such moves from the Feds?!?

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky have signed a security pact under which Berlin will supply Kiev with military and economic aid for another ten years.

Inked on Friday, the agreement commits Germany to providing “unwavering support for Ukraine for as long as it takes in order to help Ukraine defend itself” and restore its 1991 borders. In addition to retaking the regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, and Zaporozhye, this feat would also involve the seizure of Crimea from Russia, which some American officials and Kiev’s former military chief view as next to impossible.

On top of military aid, the plan binds Germany to training Ukrainian police officers, transferring weapons manufacturing technology, paying for green energy projects, and a range of other efforts to help the Ukrainian government “continue providing services to its people”

A negotiated settlement to end the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is both possible and desirable, a report published by the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft said.

Former CIA analyst George Beebe and Eurasia expert Anatol Lieven, the authors of the 43-page paper, believe that it is possible to reach a compromise by diplomatic means.

"Conventional wisdom holds that a negotiated end to the Ukraine war is neither possible nor desirable. This belief is false. It is also extremely dangerous for Ukraine’s future," the US think tank highlighted in the report.

On February 16, Alexei Navalny, widely known as a Russian opposition politician, died in the colony in Siberia. The official cause of death has not yet been announced, the investigation is ongoing; but the West has already apointed its culprit. 

According to official reports from the colony, the prisoner suddenly felt ill during a walk. Navalny “almost immediately lost consciousness,” medical workers were sent to him, and “an ambulance crew was also called.” The doctors carried out “all the necessary resuscitation measures, which did not give positive results.” The doctors who arrived pronounced him dead. According to preliminary data, the cause of death could be a thrombus.

The infamous politician Navalny was a flamboyant figure widely touted in the West by the MSM as the “main freedom fighter” in Russia. In fact, the oppositionist was imprisoned several times not for his political struggle, but for ordinary financial fraud, non-compliance with court requirements and violations of the criminal code.

The US does not believe Russia poses a direct threat to NATO’s eastern flank in the near future, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told Polish news outlet Interia on Friday.

Kirby was asked about the possibility of a full-scale war between NATO and Russia, after recent Western claims of Moscow’s supposed threat to the US-led bloc.

“We do not see such an imminent threat at the moment,” Kirby said. “Now, of course, Russia is focused, not to say trapped, in Ukraine. We do not see a direct threat to NATO, to the eastern flank, we do not see it at the moment.” 

At the same time, Kirby noted that Moscow opposes the strengthening and expansion of NATO, and that Russia treats the Ukraine conflict as a confrontation with the West and the US in particular. “That is why we are consistently strengthening our presence on NATO’s eastern flank. The president [Joe Biden] has sent an additional 25,000 [American] troops to Europe,” the spokesman stated.

A New York judge has temporarily barred former US President Donald Trump from running his businesses in the state and ordered him and his organization to pay $354 million in fraud damages for submitting false business reports.

Friday’s civil court ruling by Judge Arthur Engoron includes a three-year ban on Trump serving as an officer or director of any New York business, including the Trump Organization. Trump and his company were also barred from applying for any bank loans in New York. The monetary damages were imposed on the ex-president and other Trump Organization executives, including his two eldest sons.

Trump and his business associates were accused of using exaggerated asset valuations to obtain favorable terms on loans and insurance policies. Engoron acknowledged in his ruling that all of the loans in question were paid back in full and on time, but he argued that the absence of a victim “does not extinguish the harm that false statements inflict on the marketplace.” He added, “The next group of lenders to receive bogus statements might not be so lucky.”

Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, has some disturbing skeletons in her family wardrobe.

Her political roots in Nazi Germany account for the insane war-driven agenda of the European Union toward Russia under her stewardship and her total subservience to the U.S. imperialist objective to defeat Moscow.

Author Evan Reif explains how her politician-father Ernst Albrecht packed his regional government with unreconstructed Nazis and former Wehrmacht officers when he was governor of Lower Saxony in the 1980s.

The last few years have been years of miscalculation for the West. Big things have been planned and put into action, and failed. All the wars, all the sanctions, all domestic and economic ‘initiatives’, and all responses to what the adversaries have done are failing or have already failed. In fact, the failure of any venture by the West has become almost guaranteed. This has a lot of people scratching their heads – they simply can’t fathom how this can happen.

At the same time the real goals of the western political class have come under increased scrutiny. Everything they do seems to be designed to make things worse for western societies on all levels, including economic, social, health, and so on and so forth. Why, exactly, is that?

It is like incompetence and malice have conspired to create the worst situation imaginable.

Recently I wrote a piece where I suggested that the western ruling class undergoes a filtering process to ensure that they have the right personality and attitudes for their task of deconstructing western societies. I furthermore suggested that this filtering process results in a pool of ruling elites who are either narcissists or forced to behave as such to keep their jobs.

Russian President Vladimir Putin explained in an interview with US journalist Tucker Carlson that Moscow had exhausted the reserve of kind gestures towards the West and the normalization of relations now no longer depended on the Russian side, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov pointed out, commenting on the possibility of restoring relations with the Western countries.

"As for the restoration of relations, the president mentioned it, too," Lavrov told the conference Euromaidan: Ukraine's Lost Decade. "Relations will be restored someday. When this will happen does not depend on us. This is their problem. We have made many concessions and gestures of goodwill, as the president recalled, and the reserve of these gestures has already been exhausted."

"We have seen some very different gestures in response to our goodwill moves," Lavrov stressed. He also recalled that Putin had urged the West to recognize its mistake and try to find some convenient way out, provided that the problems around Ukraine were resolved with due regard for Russia’s interests.

Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine has claimed that climate change 'disproportionately effects' the mental and physical wellbeing of black Americans.

Levine, 66, made the contentious statement while speaking in a video aiming to enhance health awareness for black communities during Black History Month.

The transgender Biden official declared: 'Climate change is having a disproportionate effect on the physical and mental health of black communities.'

Levine continued: 'Black Americans are more likely than white Americans to live areas in housing that increase their susceptibility to climate related health issues.'

The video has since gone viral on X, formerly Twitter , as social media users slammed the federal official for making wild claims about climate change.

The entire western political-media class are currently rending their garments about the prison death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, and are being joined by the propaganda-addled citizenry of the western empire. Meanwhile Julian Assange’s last-ditch effort to appeal against extradition to the United States is coming up in a few days with a tiny fraction of the attention.

I really could not have a lower opinion of people who would rather talk about Navalny’s persecution in a far away country that has nothing to do with them than Julian Assange being persecuted at the hands of their own government. It’s the most pathetic, bootlicking behavior imaginable.

Ooh yeah, you’re so brave self-righteously shaking your fist at some country on the other side of the planet which has zero power over your own country while refusing to oppose the power structure you actually live under as it slowly kills a journalist for exposing its war crimes. Groveling, power-worshipping bootlicker. Absolutely sickening.

If you’re in a country whose government has had a hand in the persecution of Julian Assange, then you can go ahead and shut the fuck up about Navalny. Whenever I see people screaming about the persecution of journalists and political prisoners in other countries when they themselves live in a nation whose government is persecuting Julian Assange, I can’t help but think of Matthew 7:4–5,

“How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

What could be Assange’s final appeal effort against US extradition happens February 20th and 21st in London. Free Julian Assange.

In a recent development, CNN legal analyst Michael Moore expressed skepticism over the testimony of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Willis had testified on Thursday that she had always reimbursed her former romantic partner in cash, a claim that Moore found dubious.

The testimony was part of a hearing to determine whether Willis should be disqualified from her election interference case against former President Donald Trump. The disqualification is being considered on grounds of alleged financial impropriety related to the appointment of special prosecutor Nathan Wade. Both Willis and Wade maintained that cash was used for reimbursements related to vacations and outings, leaving no paper trail. Moore, speaking on "CNN This Morning," described this as "convenient."

The European Parliament’s LIBE Committee passed a new migration pact earlier this week. The plan for mass migration into the continent is being called “the Soros plan” and “the suicide of Europe.”

Evidently, US politicians are not alone in their quest for national suicide. It’s the entire Western civilized world.

This video “With open gates: the forced collective suicide of European nations,” was released 8 years ago during the Obama migrant invasion of Europe. The video was taken down by YouTube and Liveleak.

The video took the internet by storm. It was labeled racist by the left to show actual footage of the invasion of Europe.
