The US midterm elections are nigh and, as I happen to be a good and patriotic Russian national, it behooves me to meddle in them. Election-meddling is an example of Russia’s soft power, which is much nicer than Russia’s hard power, so you should be glad that it’s still on offer.
I am on record saying that “The United States is not a democracy and it doesn’t matter who is president” multiple times in multiple places, and I stand by that statement, which I believe to be a provable statement of fact. Statistics show that there is zero correlation between public preferences and public policy decisions but a strong correlation between business lobby group preferences and pubic policy decisions. Thus the US is not a democracy (rule by the people) but an oligopoly (rule by business groups). From this it follows that it doesn’t matter who is president because both parties of the Democrat-Republican duopoly are owned by the same set of business groups.
A national labor union representing over 100,000 federal employees pulled a document off its website after a report showed the Biden administration was using taxpayer dollars to help public unions grow their members, and as a result, their budgets.
The Center Square reported the story, which cited a news release on the National Federation of Federal Employees’ website where the labor group explicitly thanked the Biden administration for helping it recruit more federal workers.
Bruno Lozano, a young, openly gay, Hispanic Democrat once considered a rising star within his party, abruptly quit as mayor of Del Rio, Texas over the summer because his colleagues refused to acknowledge there was an illegal immigrant crisis at the border.
Lozano’s story is highlighted in an Atlantic column analyzing why Democrats are losing Hispanic voters in droves.
He is described as having “checked every box” in the Democrat Party’s identity politics game and, as such, said “you would figure Democrats might listen when I’m telling them something is wrong.”
This IS the greatest medical disaster in the history of obstetrics and all of medicine. I testify that this unwarranted experimental gene therapy was NEVER indicated in pregnancy and was perpetrated unlawfully and with falsified data. Res ipsi loquitor. Facts speak for themselves.
It was known by Schadlich et al as early as 2012 that the lipid nanoparticles (LNP) concentrate in the ovaries of mice and Wistar rats. The FOIA request of the Japanese Pfizer biodistribution studies absolutely confirmed: within 48 hours the “vaccine” was immediately absorbed into the blood stream and concentrated in the ovaries 118-fold by 48 hours and the trajectory of the concentration would have risen even higher had the animals not been sacrificed at 48 hours. This experimental therapy may have permanent damaging effects on the human genome for multiple generations and makes diethystilbestrol pale in comparison.
A preborn baby by near term has only one million ova (gametes or germ cells) for her entire lifetime, this compared men’s gametes (sperm) are continuously produce throughout life with nearly a million sperm per hour. As argued in 2020 it was NEVER necessary in pregnancy because there were ample data suggesting that alternate therapies were available, but these were suppressed, buried, and villanized by the medical industrial complex for the sole purpose of paving the way for a lucrative experimental gene therapy masqueraded as a vaccine. Not only do the biodistribution studies document the disastrous concentration of the LNP in the ovaries adjacent to the precious and limited ova of our future generations, but these products also concentrate in the thymus gland in fetal life potentially rendering permanent harm to the “seed of the immune function for life”.
“Algeria [has] made an official application to join BRICS,” media reported, citing Foreign Ministry special envoy Leila Zerrouki.
The president of the North African nation previously said that Algeria may be interested in joining the bloc, adding that it largely meets the conditions for entering BRICS.
This comes after Iran and Argentina earlier this year also announced they were seeking membership in the group. Moreover, BRICS International Forum President Purnima Anand noted that Turkey, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia may “very soon” follow them in applying.
The Democratic National Committee and a Michigan congressman in a neck-and-neck election race turned to a virulently anti-gay pastor to help get out the vote in the week before the election, The Daily Wire has learned.
Georgia gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams (D) claimed over the weekend that her poll numbers were lagging in part because black men were unable to see through the “misinformation” that was being used to target them.
My research team is currently monitoring online political content being sent to voters in swing states through more than 2,500 computers owned by a politically-diverse group of registered voters (our “field agents”), and we are concerned about what we’re seeing.
We are aggregating and analyzing search results on the Google and Bing search engines, messages displayed on Google’s home page, autoplay videos suggested on YouTube, tweets sent to users by the Twitter company (as opposed to tweets sent by other users), email suppression on Gmail, and more.
We have so far preserved more than 1.9 million “ephemeral experiences” – exposure to short-lived content that impacts people and then disappears, leaving no trace – that Google and other companies are able to use to shift opinions and voting preferences, and we expect to have captured more than 2.5 million by Election Day.
Following a heated competition for local offices, veterans in the insurgent GI Non-Partisan League took up arms to prevent a local courthouse ring headed by state senator Paul Cantrell and linked to Memphis political boss Ed Crump from stealing the election. When Sheriff Pat Mansfield's deputies absconded to the jail with key ballot boxes, suspicious veterans took action. A small group of veterans broke into the local National Guard Armory, seized weapons and ammunition, and proceeded to the jail to demand the return of the ballot boxes. The Cantrell-Mansfield deputies refused, and the veterans, now numbering several hundred, opened fire. The ensuing battle lasted several hours and ended only after the dynamiting of the front of the jail. The surrender of the deputies did not end the riot, and the mob was still turning over police cars and burning them hours later. Within days the local election commission swore in the veteran candidates as duly elected. The McMinn County veterans had won the day in a hail of gunfire, dynamite, and esprit de corps.
Google–one of the largest and most influential organizations in the modern world–is filled with ex-CIA agents. Studying employment websites and databases, MintPress has ascertained that the Silicon Valley giant has recently hired dozens of professionals from the Central Intelligence Agency in recent years. Moreover, an inordinate number of these recruits work in highly politically sensitive fields, wielding considerable control over how its products work and what the world sees on its screens and in its search results.
Chief amongst these is the trust and safety department, whose staff, in the words of then Google trust and safety vice president Kristie Canegallo, “[d]ecide what content is allowed on our platform”–in other words, setting the rules of the internet, determining what billions see and what they do not see. Before Google, Canegallo had been President Obama’s Deputy White House Chief of Staff for Implementation and is currently Chief of Staff at the Department of Homeland Security.
Shepard Smith, the host of “The News with Shepard Smith,” will become a distant memory as CNBC cancels the nightly news broadcast in the next few weeks. Media officials admitted that Smith’s show would cease to be on the air by the end of the month. CNBC has indicated that it wants to focus on a new audience, but they have not specified what that new audience will look like.
The Blaze says, “After a contentious vote on Friday, the Florida Board of Medicine and Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine adopted rules that will prohibit doctors from prescribing certain medicines or performing certain surgeries on minors who believe that they are transgender. Florida Surgeon General Joseph Lapado had pushed the rules. They were publicly supported by Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who took issue with some in the medical community last week during a gubernatorial debate.”
According to Breitbart, “The video starts with audio of Trump saying that next week’s election is a “referendum” on President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D), and Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D).”
The article continues, “The radical left Democrat Congress is destroying our country,” Trump said. “You’ll elect an incredible slate of True America First Republicans up and down the ballot.”
The video encourages Americans to vote to help save America from the Democrats. Then, it shows voters who they need to vote for in this election. According to Breitbart, “The video then cuts to a montage of America First Republican candidates, including Arizona’s Kari Lake and Blake Masters, Pennsylvania’s Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano, Ohio’s J.D. Vance, North Carolina’s Ted Budd, Alaska’s Sarah Palin, and Kelly Tshibaka, Georgia’s Herschel Walker, Texas’s Gov. Greg Abbott, Michigan’s Tudor Dixon, Wyoming’s Harriet Hageman, and Nevada’s Joe Lombardo and Adam Laxalt.”
The Pentagon announced that it is setting up a new command, based in Germany, to oversee the training and equipping of Ukraine’s military during its fight with Russia, the New York Times reported on Friday. The command is named Security Assistance Group-Ukraine, or SAG-U.
The news came soon after the announcement of another $400 million arms package to Ukraine, including tanks and drones. These weapons will be used to retake territory Russia has annexed, according to Kiev. Current and former US officials told the Times these moves suggest that Washington "expects the threat from Russia to Ukraine and its neighbors to persist for many years."
Sabrina Singh, the deputy Pentagon press secretary, told reporters the new command will "ensure we are postured to continue supporting Ukraine over the long term." She added the US remains "committed to Ukraine for as long as it takes."
The war in Ukraine has spurred European countries to seek hundreds of billions in new weapons. American arms manufacturers are the “biggest beneficiaries” of the increased demand for weapons, according to a Yahoo News report.
Ian Bond, director of foreign policy at the Centre for European Reform, described the surge in the market for weapons as the highest since the Cold War. “This is certainly the biggest increase in defense spending in Europe since the end of the Cold War,” he said. Melissa Rossi wrote in Yahoo that American companies have “been the biggest beneficiary” of the demand.
Members of the European Union have planned to increase their defense budgets by $230 billion, led by Germany’s pledge to increase military spending by $100 billion. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), European governments get most of their weapons from American weapon makers.
The Washington Postreported on Saturday that the US is privately encouraging Ukraine to signal an openness to negotiations with Russia but for public relations purposes, not to actually pursue diplomacy.
Sources told the Post that the US wants Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to drop his official position of ruling out talks with Russia as long as Vladimir Putin is president, which is essentially a call for regime change in Moscow. The idea is to maintain support for Ukraine from nations uneasy about Zelensky’s stance on negotiations.
The report reads: “The request by American officials is not aimed at pushing Ukraine to the negotiating table, these people said. Rather, they called it a calculated attempt to ensure the government in Kyiv maintains the support of other nations facing constituencies wary of fueling a war for many years to come.”
