"A lot of people talk about the desirability of a global government, with themselves inevitably at its head, but the truth is a global government has already emerged, one that is the purest expression of democracy possible. The new global government is the people of planet Earth sharing the collective consciousness of the internet, finding out for themselves what they need to know, and then deciding what to do about it. Sadly, along the way, we have been forced to look into a mirror to see the true nature of those who wish to be our leaders and it is not a pretty picture of human nature. We have learned that with precious few exceptions, politicians are all corrupt, corporations sell us useless and often dangerous products, bankers exist to loot us, and the clergy are diddling the little boys." -- Michael Rivero

House Republicans are now calling on DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to turn over any information about the illegal immigrant who is charged with murdering a nursing student.

House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Immigration Integrity, Security, and Enforcement Subcommittee Chair Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) wrote a letter demanding information on Jose Antonio Ibarra, 26.

The undocumented Venezuelan migrant stands charged with last week's brutal murder of University of Georgia student Laken Riley, 22.

Jordan and McClintock want the 'case history' on Ibarra as well as any information on his processing by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.

Their demand of Mayorkas comes after the House voted to impeach Biden's Homeland Security secretary earlier this month.

Since the entire argument was predicated around crime in the UK, Phillips appears to be suggesting that every week in the UK “millions” of white men beat or murder women, a claim suffice to say that isn’t backed up by any evidence.

According to The Crime Survey for England and Wales, 1.4 million women per year experience domestic abuse, which equates to about 27,000 a week, and you can then lower that number significantly when you remove non-white abusers, women who beat other women, and abuse that isn’t physical.

Respondents on x had a field day.

It may take more than 10 years for someone injured by a COVID-19 vaccine to receive a decision on whether their claim is eligible for compensation by the government’s vaccine compensation program—if they receive a response at all.

U.S. health officials responded to questions on America’s failing vaccine injury compensation system in a hearing that left the vaccine-injured feeling like addressing the system’s shortcomings is not a priority on Capitol Hill.

As of Jan. 1, there were 12,854 claims filed for injuries caused by COVID-19 countermeasures with the government’s Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), including 9,600 related to injuries caused by COVID-19 vaccines. Of the 12,854 claims, 2,214 have been processed, but only 40 claims have been found eligible for compensation.

According to testimony given during a Feb. 15 hearing of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, there’s a backlog of about 10,800 claims. With only 35 employees processing claims at a rate of 2.7 cases per employee per month, it will take about 10 years to process the remaining claims. 

“I just don’t think it’s right. I think we need to streamline this process,” Rep. Rich McCormick (R-Ga.) said during the hearing. “We need to speed up this process by about tenfold in order to do our job for the American people.”

According to CICP data, as of Jan. 1, only 11 people have received compensation for their injuries out of 40 COVID-19 claims found eligible for compensation. The average award was a mere $3,700, whereas the average payout under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) that handles injuries caused by routine vaccines is $490,000.

“If you die or get injured from a COVID-19 vaccine, your average payout is $3,700,” said Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to U.S. health officials during the hearing.

Claire's Observations:  Many of these claimants may very well die before getting compensated, as the result of opportunistic infections or other medical problems hitting them,  as a result of their having had the MRNA shots, at this point.

Carlson explained that the West's escalation of the conflict long ago into a full-blown proxy war has not only resulted in more needless Ukrainian deaths, but it has been devastating for the United States. "I reject the whole premise of the war in Ukraine from the American perspective," Carlson told Fridman. "There’s a war going on that is wrecking the US economy in a way and at a scale that people do not understand." He also generally characterized the response of the US political class to the conflict, along with the American public which has uncritically followed, as naive.

Carlson emphasized that what would be a cautiously realist approach was utterly abandoned by Washington from the start, as has been typical of the past decades of US interventionism abroad. "It doesn’t even matter what I want to happen… that’s a distortion of what is happening," Carlson explained, and pointed to Russia having 100 million more people and more defense industry might "than all of NATO combined."

“Our 4-year-old was awakened from the chaos, and I picked him up and ran downstairs to open the front door. Our house, street and neighboring streets were completely surrounded by armed FBI and law enforcement. It was a scene that we see so many times in the movies, but now it was here at my house,” the veteran’s wife said.

Kuehne’s wife explained that police vehicles were parked all throughout the family’s community and that three armored vehicles surrounded the family’s home.

“I open the door, and for a second, I didn’t realize that there were about twenty FBI SWAT Team members with semi-automatic rifles pointed at my son and I,” she added. “We were covered by the bright red lasers pointed at our faces, chests, and various points on our bodies.”

According to The Gateway Pundit, Kuehne’s pregnant wife and their four-year-old boy were forced to stand outside in the 12-degree Kansas weather during the armed FBI raid. In a video posted on social media, Kuehne’s wife can be seen barefoot holding her child as FBI agents enter the house. The Gateway Pundit reported that Annette Kuehne miscarried their baby the following day.

Laken Riley was a 22-year-old student on the Dean’s List at the Augusta University’s College of Nursing in Athens, Georgia, with a bright future ahead of her. She went for a run on a popular trail during the day and never returned home. Her body was found discarded in the woods and investigators, Democrat lawmakers, and the media have done everything to conceal the identity of her murderer. Laken Riley is one of countless victims targeted by illegal migrants who are above the law.

Initial reports of her murder did not include the assailant’s identity or migration status. Jose Antonio, 26, of Venezuela, entered the US through the El Paso, Texas, border passing that Texas Governor Abbott has attempted to secure. There is surveillance video footage of Antonio attacking Riley, but it was omitted from initial reports as the media continues to side with the criminals both in office and on the streets. Numerous media outlets described Antonio as an “Athens resident.” The Associated Press had the audacity to release a devious article entitled: “The killing of a nursing student out for a run highlights the fears of solo female athletes,” suggesting that women “can try to say safer while exercising.” Riley notified her friends that she was going for a run and when to expect her back. She brought her phone and left during the broad daylight.

Steve Kramer, a veteran political consultant working for a rival candidate, acknowledged Sunday that he commissioned the robocall that impersonated President Joe Biden using artificial intelligence, confirming an NBC News report that he was behind the call

In a statement and interview with NBC News, Kramer expressed no remorse for creating the deepfake, in which an imitation of the president’s voice discouraged participation in New Hampshire’s Democratic presidential primary. The call launched several law enforcement investigations and provoked outcry from election officials and watchdogs.

“I’m not afraid to testify, I know why I did everything,” he said an interview late Sunday, his first since coming forward. “If a House oversight committee wants me to testify, I’m going to demand they put it on TV because I know more than them.”

A transgender member of a new UN panel that's drafting global health rules has a kinky track record in everything from bestiality to bondage, drugs and nudism, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Teddy Cook, a female-to-male trans Australian activist, started work this month on the World Health Organization's 20-expert body, drafting care guidelines for trans and non-binary people.

Cook, 45, who describes himself as a 'professional queer, man of trans experience,' has a controversial backstory.

He's advocated for taxpayer-funded surgeries for all trans Australians, and worked on a study about trans people having better sex when they're high on drugs.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis forced her employees to attend a mandatory “diversity, equity and inclusion” training course where they were asked to classify black and white skin colors as “good” or “bad.”

A number of former employees shared training slides and video clips that were used in the officewide training with Breitbart News.  The former employees who shared the material with Breitbart News asked to remain anonymous due to fear of retribution due to their direct knowledge of the “corrupt” and “hostile work environment” inside Willis’ office.

According to the sources, the mandatory “implicit bias test” came directly from Willis “[who] injected racism [into the office] from the second she got hired.” It was generated by a Harvard website, which generated the ““diversity, equity, and inclusion” slides that displayed racial bias towards white employees.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, has called for lawmakers to change the Sanctuary City law.

Mayor Adams said he wants the law to be modified to allow for migrants who commit violent crimes to be deported.

Speaking at an event on Tuesday, Adams said “The overwhelming amount of migrants that are here, they want to work. I still don’t understand why the federal government’s not allowing them to work.”

Despite public protestations, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is helping Israel transfer 1.4 million Palestinians from Rafah to tent cities in the Sinai Desert.

On Saturday, western news agencies reported that closed-door negotiations took place in Paris that were aimed at reaching an agreement on a ceasefire in Gaza.

According to Reuters the talks represented “the most serious push for weeks to halt the fighting in the battered Palestinian enclave and see Israeli and foreign hostages released.”

Regrettably, the reports from Paris were largely a media-engineered deception intended to divert attention from the real purpose of the confab.

Keep in mind, the primary attendees of the gathering were not senior-level diplomats or trained negotiators, but the directors of the Intelligence services including the head of Israel’s Mossad, David Barnea, Egyptian spy-chief Abbas Kamel, and CIA Director William Burns.

These are not the men one would choose to hammer-out a hostage exchange or a ceasefire deal, but to implement electronic surveillance, espionage or black ops. Thus, it is extremely unlikely that they met in Paris to settle on a plan for the cessation of hostilities. The more probable explanation is that the respective spy-chiefs are putting the finishing touches on a collaborative plan to breach the Egyptian border wall so that one and a half million severely-traumatized Palestinians can flee into Egypt without any serious opposition from the Egyptian army.

Such an operation would require considerable coordination in order to minimize the casualties while, at the same time, achieving its overall objective. Naturally, any breach would have to be blamed on Hamas who will undoubtedly be the convenient scapegoat for blowing up a section of the wall creating an opening for thousands of stampeding Palestinians.

In this way, Israel could characterize the mass expulsion as a “voluntary migration” which is the cheery-sounding Zionist sobriquet for ethnic cleansing. In any event, the bulk of Gaza’s Moslem population will have been evicted from their historic homeland and forced into refugee camps scattered across the Sinai Desert. This is Netanyahu’s endgame which could take place at any time.

There is some doubt as to whether Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi will cooperate with Israel and allow the Palestinians to enter Egypt en masse, but those doubts are based on speculation not fact.

For those who care to dig a bit deeper, there’s a clear money-trail connecting the dodgy Egyptian president to a policy-change that will more than accommodate Netanyahu’s ambitious ethnic cleansing plan. In other words, the fix is already in. This is from Reuters:

Talks with Egypt to boost its International Monetary Fund loan program are making excellent progress, the IMF said on Thursday, saying that Egypt needs a “very comprehensive support package” to deal with economic challenges, including pressures from the war in Gaza….

Asked about the impact on the talks from challenges posed by the expected entry of Gaza refugees into Egypt, Kozack said: “There is a need to have a very comprehensive support package for Egypt, and we’re working very closely with both the Egyptian authorities and their partners to ensure that Egypt does not have any residual financing needs and also to ensure that the program is able to ensure macroeconomic and financial stability in Egypt.” IMF sees progress on Egypt loan program amid Gaza pressures,Reuters

War on Gaza: Arab Despots’ Failure to Stand Up to Israel Could Fuel an Explosion

Repeat: “to ensure that Egypt does not have any residual financing needs”?

WTF? So the IMF now provides financial support for ethnic cleansing?

It certainly looks that way. The IMF wants to make sure that el-Sisi has sufficient money to cover the costs of feeding and housing one and a half million refugees

Claire's Observations:  But what happens after the initial transfer of Palestinians?!?  How do they get jobs, when they are not Egyptian citizens?!?  And what happens to the education for their children?!? And what about medical needs?!?

I would like to hope that some "adults in the room" handling Egyptian foreign policy, have really thought these issues through; if not, those areas Egypt to which the Palestinians are being transferred, could become  tinderboxes for the Egyptian government.

New doubts are emerging about the New York Times’s coverage of sexual violence during the October 7 Hamas-led attack — and the paper owes its readers an open and transparent explanation. 

What’s more, its reporting on this issue has become so questionable that it should assign new reporters to go over the entire story again.

The latest questions are centered around Anat Schwartz, an Israeli who co-authored several of the paper’s most widely circulated reports, including the now well-known and scrutinized December 28 article headlined: “‘Screams Without Words’’ How Hamas Weaponized Sexual Violence on Oct. 7.

Independent researchers scrutinized the online record, and raised serious questions about Schwartz. First, she has apparently never been a reporter but is actually a filmmaker, who the Times suddenly hired in October. You would expect the paper to look for someone with actual journalistic experience, especially for a story as sensitive as this one, written during the fog of war. Surely the paper had enough of its own correspondents on staff who could have been assigned to it.

The 144-year old Wall Street go-to law firm, Sullivan & Cromwell, may be getting rich on the FTX bankruptcy legal fees, but it’s also doing a helluva job destroying its reputation as a prudent law firm. Last Friday, a federal lawsuit was filed against the law firm alleging civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting fraud, aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty, and violations of civil federal racketeering law in regard to its work for the collapsed crypto exchange, FTX, which looted customer funds to the tune of billions of dollars.

We’ll get to the stunning allegations in the lawsuit in a moment, but first some necessary background.

Last year, Wall Street On Parade wrote more than 20 articles documenting the labyrinthine and deeply conflicted ways that Sullivan & Cromwell had enmeshed itself in the FTX crypto exchange before the house of cards collapsed. (See a small sampling of our work in “Related Articles” at the end of this article.)

On Friday, February 16, ahead of a three-day weekend, JPMorgan Chase quietly filed its 10-K (annual report) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The document carried the bombshell that the bank had paid an astonishing $1.4 billon in legal expenses in 2023 – a 426 percent increase over the prior year’s legal expenses.

While the bank didn’t break down the names of the law firms that received the lion’s share of those legal expenses, public records can fill in most of the blanks.

Throughout 2023, JPMorgan Chase was paying the expensive lawyers at WilmerHale to defend it against a federal lawsuit brought by the David Boies law firm, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, on behalf of the raped, assaulted, and sex trafficked underage victims of Jeffrey Epstein. JPMorgan was also paying WilmerHale lawyers throughout 2023 to defend it against Epstein-related charges brought by the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands. In both cases, the plaintiffs credibly alleged that the bank was actively-engaged in facilitating Epstein’s criminal sex-trafficking enterprise by providing the financial services and hard cash necessary to keep it going while willfully violating its duty to report the cash transactions to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Both cases were settled by JPMorgan last year, thus preventing the mountain of heavily redacted and sealed documents from seeing the light of day in a jury trial. The Epstein victims’ case was settled for $290 million while the U.S. Virgin Islands case was settled for $75 million.

The White House is steering the United States into a budgetary ditch it may not be able to get out of.

The Biden administration is supersizing the defense industry to meet foreign arms obligations instead of making tradeoffs essential to any effective budget. Its new National Defense Industrial Strategy lays out a plan to “catalyze generational change” of the defense industrial base and to “meet the strategic moment” — one rhetorically dominated by competition with China, but punctuated by U.S. support for Ukraine’s fight against Russia and Israel’s military campaign in Gaza.

Instead of reevaluating its maximalist national security strategy, the Biden administration is doubling down. It is proposing a generation of investment to expand an arms industry that, overall, fails to meet cost, schedule, and performance standards. And if its strategy is any indication, the administration has no vision for how to eventually reduce U.S. military industrial capacity.

When the Cold War ended, the national security budget shrank. Then-Secretary of Defense Les Aspin and deputy William Perry convened industry leaders to encourage their consolidation in a meeting that later became known as the “Last Supper.” Arms makers were to join forces or go out of business. So they ended up downsizing from over 50 prime contractors to just five. And while contractors needed to pare down their industrial capacity, unchecked consolidation created the monopolistic defense sector we have now — one that depends heavily on government contracts and enjoys significant freedom to set prices.

In the decades since, contractors have leveraged their growing economic power to pave inroads on Capitol Hill. They have solidified their economic influence to stave off the political potential for future national security cuts, regardless of their performance or the geopolitical environment.

Growing the military industrial base over the course of a generation would only further empower arms makers in our economy, deepening the ditch the United States has dug itself into for decades by continually increasing national security spending — and by doling about half of it out to contractors. The U.S. spends more on national security than the next 10 countries combined, outpacing China alone by over 30%.

How Biden Can Bypass Congress on Ukraine Aid

Ironically, the administration acknowledges in the strategy that “America’s economic security and national security are mutually reinforcing,” stating that “the nation’s military strength depends in part on our overall economic strength.” The strategy further states that optimizing the nation’s defense needs typically requires tradeoffs between “cost, speed, and scale.” It doesn’t mention quality of industrial output — arguably the biggest tradeoff the U.S. government has made in military procurement.

Consider, for instance, the B-2 bomber, the F-35 fighter jet, the Littoral Combat Ship, the V-22 Osprey, and many other examples of acquisition failures that have spanned decades. More recently, the Government Accountability Office has reported that while the number of major defense acquisition programs has fallen, both costs and average delivery time have risen.

So what is the military really getting from more and more national security spending? Less for more: Fewer weapons than it asked for, usually late and over budget, and, much of the time, dysfunctional. Acquisition failures are a major reason the Congressional Budget Office projects that operations and maintenance spending will significantly exceed the rate of inflation for the next decade — a considerable budgeting issue for a military that seemingly has no plans to reduce either its force structure or its industrial capacity. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Terrence Bradley, Nathan Wade’s former law partner and divorce lawyer, allegedly told Trump co-defendant Michael Roman’s attorney outside of court that Fani Willis and Nathan Wade had sex at the law office she was renting before she was Fulton County District Attorney.

Bradley was back on the stand on Tuesday after previously refusing to answer questions and hiding behind attorney-client privilege. However, Judge Scott McAfee ruled he was not protected by attorney-client privilege and ordered him to testify Tuesday morning.

Attorney Ashleigh Merchant made this bombshell revelation during her examination of Bradley in the third hearing on a Motion to Disqualify Fani Willis from the RICO case against Trump and 18 co-defendants. Merchant asked Bradley if it’s true that Fani Willis had sex with Nathan Wade at her private law office before she was District Attorney and before Wade was hired to lead the prosecution.
