Thought for the day
"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have given way to permanent crisis management: to policing the planet and fighting preventative wars of ideological containment, usually on terrain chosen by, and favorable to, our enemies. Limited government and constitutional accountability have been shouldered aside by the kind of imperial presidency our constitutional system was explicitly designed to prevent." -- David C. Unger, The Emergency State: America’s Pursuit of Absolute Security at All Costs
A bombshell Washington Post investigation has revealed that the Pentagon is conducting a “sweeping audit of how it conducts clandestine information warfare,” after a variety of social media accounts, which its operatives used to target foreign audiences in elaborate psychological warfare efforts, were exposed.
The accounts violated platform rules and were eventually busted by researchers and the social networks they weaponized.
US defense policy advisor Colin Kahl is reported to have demanded that every Pentagon division engaged in “psychological operations online” provides a full account of their activities by October, due to high-level concerns that “attempted manipulation of audiences overseas” by the Department of Defense have significantly overstepped the mark.
Amid large-scale cancellations of flights at Beijing airport and massive military build-up in Beijing, rumours about a coup in China are going around for the last few days. It has been claimed by many that President Xi Jinping has been removed from the post, and that he has been put under house arrest by PLA. However, nothing has been confirmed till now, and probably the rumours are not true.
In the last few days, several Chinese social media handles had claimed that Xi Jinping has been stripped of his military powers and is under house arrest. It was claimed that the ‘coup’ took place when the Chinese premier was in Samarkand in Uzbekistan to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit. According to the rumours, when Jinping was in Samarkand, his distractors in the party convinced the party’s top leadership to remove Jinping from the leadership of the army.
Most of the China experts have highlighted that there are no signs of the coup beyond commentary on social media, particularly in Indian circles.
China expert Aadil Brar noted that Xi is likely in quarantine after returning from the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit, which would explain his absence from public affairs at the moment.
Brar also shared flight data showing there is no disruption of flights. He further shared visuals of public briefings by senior Chinese officials, suggesting that government is functioning normally.

This year, parents and guardians stood together in opposition to the COVID-19 shot being required for their children to attend school. As a result of their coming together, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) decided to rescind the mandate for Louisiana students. As of yesterday, it has officially been repealed.
In light of this victory for parents and their children, Attorney General Jeff Landry has filed a motion to dismiss the Crews v. Edwards case, wherein he sought to have the vaccine mandate enjoined and issued the following statement:
“Today is the culmination of hard work by so many concerned parents throughout Louisiana. This is the direct result of moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians fighting for what is right. I thank Representative Raymond Crews, Health Freedom Louisiana, the Bayou Mama Bears, Town Hall Baton Rouge, Children’s Health Defense, and all those from across Louisiana that stood with us for parental choice.
Child medical decisions should be made by their guardians, not the government. I hope this health freedom victory reminds everyone what can happen when we all work together. When citizens are engaged and get involved, their government will listen.” -Attorney General, Jeff Landry, Sept 21, 2022
Since David Hogg survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, he has been causing controversy for his remarks, mainly on social media, about guns and other political issues.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Hogg has made a curious announcement about his future.
He tweeted, “I’m never planning on having kids. I would much rather own a Porsche and have a Portuguese water dog and golden doodle [sic]. Long term it’s cheaper, better for The [sic] environment, and will never tell you that it hates you or ask you to pay for college.”
Hogg went on to explain that “Kids are the new boats. Like, yes kids are nice, but most people can’t afford them, so it’s nice to have friends with one but not have one yourself. Pets are the affordable version of kids today for
Millennials and Gen Z and plants are now the more affordable plants.”
It lasted about a week. The legislation prohibited physicians from prescribing puberty blockers or hormone therapy for patients under 18. If the doctors do not comply, they could be charged with a felony, spend up to ten years in jail, and pay $15,000 in fines.
A federal judge stepped in and issued an injunction.
The Post Millennial reported that an article in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy shows how using puberty blockers is based on little evidence. It deemed the safety and reversibility of the medication “implausible.”
Historians of the future, grilling spatchcocked plovers over their campfires, will need not ponder for even a New York minute who started World War Three in the rockin’ 2020s. They will point straight to the waxy, furtive, larval figure known as “Joe Biden,” by then judged a moral weevil of such epic low degree that he became an embarrassment to all the other sewer-dwelling denizens of the dank DC underworld, including the roaches, the rats, the humble shipworms eating through sunk oaken foundations of buildings long forgotten, the writhing maggots rinsed from a thousand restaurant dumpsters, the slithering hellgrammites, millipedes, silverfish, pillbugs, termites, dung-beetles, woodlice, and, not least, the scaly lawyers spawned out of the infestation beneath K Street called Perkins Coie LLP. Even these would loathe and disdain the thing that came into this world as “Joe Biden.”
Let us agree that the place called Ukraine was never any of America’s business. For centuries we ignored it, through all the colorful cavalry charges to-and-fro of Turks and Tatars, the reign of the dashing Zaporozhian Cossacks, the cruel abuses of Stalin, then Hitler, and the dull, gray Khrushchev-to-Yeltsin years. But then, having destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia and sundry other places all on a great hegemonic lark, the professional warmongers of our land and their catamites in Washington made Ukraine their next special project. They engineered the 2014 coup in Kiev that ousted the elected president, Mr. Yanyukovich, to set up a giant grifting parlor and international money-laundromat. The other strategic aim was to prepare Ukraine for NATO membership, which would have made it, in effect, a forward missile base right up against Russia’s border. Because, well, Russia, Russia, Russia!
An early beneficiary of these arrangements, you might recall, was one Hunter Biden, the drug-addicted, sex-obsessed, no-account son of Barack Obama’s no-account vice-president then known simply as Joe Biden sans quote-marks — because in 2014, he was a closer approximation of a real person than is sadly now the case. In fact, he was known as “The Big Guy” among Hunter’s business coterie (though listed as “Pedo Peter” on Hunter’s speed-dial). After the 2014 coup, and for years beyond, Hunter pulled a steady revenue stream out of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings, a natgas distributor (among other things), serving as a know-nothing, no-show board member. When this monkey business came to the attention of President Trump, and he made a telephone inquiry about it, he was instantly beset by swarms of DC swamp vermin hoisting writs of impeachment.
The latest update of the U.S. Government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) today (Friday, September 23, 2022) records the death of a 37-year-old Oklahoma man two days after receiving the JYNNEOS/BAVARIAN NORDIC monkeypox vaccine.
He was vaccinated on September 7th, and died two days later on September 9th. (Source.)
This is the second recent death made available to the public since the vaccines were made available just 3 months ago (June, 2022).
The first death was a Hollywood makeup artist, who died 9 days after receiving a monkeypox vaccine. (Source.)
According to the CDC, as of September 20th, 684,980 doses of the monkeypox vaccine have been administered, the bulk of them being in July and August. (Source.)
With less than .1% of the public now being vaccinated with the monkeypox vaccine, there have been 719 cases filed in VAERS, including 1 death, 1 permanent disability, 3 life threatening events, 56 emergency room visits, and 4 hospitalizations. (Source.)
The Israeli Ministry of Health (MoH) commissioned researchers to analyze adverse event reports submitted by Israelis and the researchers presented findings from the new surveillance system in an internal June 2022 meeting, video of which was obtained by an Israeli journalist.
Researchers said that the phenomenon of rechallenge—when adverse events reoccur or worsen following additional vaccine doses—proved that some of the events were caused by the vaccine.
A positive rechallenge was reported in 10 percent of the women who complained of menstrual issues, according to the researchers, who also identified cases of rechallenge for other adverse events.
On the one hand, the Bank of England just hike rates by 50bps, reupped its warning of a recession, and warned that it will have to be much tighter for a long time to come. On the other, in an apparent complete failure in communication, the Truss government and its motley crew of cartoonish officials just cut taxes by the most in almost 50 years, a tax cut which will be funded with more debt. No wonder cable is plunging, gilts are imploding and global markets are cratering on fears that the "UK model" will soon be adopted by the rest of the world (just as Albert Edwards accurately predicted just yesterday).
The California Air Resources Board voted to end the sale of natural gas heaters by 2030.
The goal is to replace all gas-powered furnaces and water heaters with electric appliances.
California can’t even keep the lights on as it is.
What could possibly go wrong?
“While this strategy will clean the air for all Californians, it will also lead to reduced emissions in the many low-income and disadvantaged communities that experience greater levels of persistent air pollution,” said CARB Chair Liane Randolph in a statement.
During a recent interview with CNBC, West explained where his deal with Gap started to go south.
“There’s a lot of stuff where they have a lot of commitments to China,” the rapper said. “We wanted to do localized manufacturing which is completely possible with some of the factories that I’m buying here in California. We can actually bring industry back to America.”

Former federal agent Gary Collins, who served with the State Department Diplomatic Security Service, Department of Health and Human Services, and Food and Drug Administration for nearly two decades, recently spoke with The Political Insider’s Brett Smith regarding the FBI’s corruption during the Trump administration and mistreatment of those who are deemed internal threats by the current administration.
Collins, who left federal employment in 2012 after becoming disillusioned with what he considered to be unethical practices and borderline-unlawful behaviors by federal employees, told Smith how former President Trump could have permanently reformed the federal government during his one term in office.
Trump’s biggest mistake and biggest missed opportunity? Not immediately firing and replacing every Obama appointee.
Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Merrick Garland on Thursday requesting the Attorney General look into “kidnapping” charges for those involved in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ effort to send illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
But if shipping people out of state to try and give them a better life amounts to “kidnapping,” Newsom has some explaining to do.
In July of 2019, SFist published an article critiquing a program called ‘Homeward Bound,’ an effort initiated by Newsom as mayor of San Francisco in 2004.
The program paid for bus tickets out of town, presumably with the destination being to friends and family willing to take the homeless individual in.
Conservative activist and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute Christopher Rufo shined the light this week on some of the extremely graphic “LGBTQ+” materials being shown to children in schools.
(Warning to readers, some of this stuff is very sexually explicit.)
Known for rabble-rousing the extreme left-wing crowd, Mr. Rufo broke down the contents of a website being promoted by the National Education Association (NEA).
This website was created by the National Education Association’s “LGBTQ+ Caucus” and is meant to provide updated sexual education links and information for students who identify as LGBTQ.
With all the talk on the left that conservative right-wing extremists are trying to ban books willy-nilly for no reason and are making false claims about oversexualized content in schools, it’s essential to take note when hard evidence like this is discovered and published.
Luckily for you, dear reader, I combed through the website myself, so you don’t have to.
” dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, have filed a motion to dismiss the charges brought against their client by special counsel John Durham.|” dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, have filed a motion to dismiss the charges brought against their client by special counsel John Durham.
In the process, they have revealed another startling and potentially criminal dimension to the FBI’s probe of potential collusion between the campaign of former President Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
Five counts of lying were brought against Danchenko by Durham in November 2021. Four of those relate to statements he made in a February 2017 interview, in which he repeatedly claimed to have met and had conversations with Sergey Millian, a Belarusian-born businessman who claimed ties with the Trump campaign.
Danchenko, and thus Steele, claimed Millian was a key source of the dossier’s most explosive allegations – namely, that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between Trump and the Kremlin, that Russia’s GRU had hacked the Democratic National Convention email server and provided the content for WikiLeaks for the purposes of “plausible deniability,” and the then-Presidential candidate had received a “golden shower” from prostitutes while in Moscow years earlier, which was filmed by Russian intelligence and could be used as “kompromat.”

Is California on the verge of becoming a sanctuary state for child transgender trafficking? The state’s legislature is definitely trying to make it happen.
Senate Bill 107, introduced by Scott Wiener, a prominent Democratic state senator, was recently passed and now awaits a signature from Gov. Gavin Newsom. If signed, SB 107 would allow the Golden State to take custody of out-of-state minors who want to become “trans,” but who are prohibited from doing so in their home state.
Even if parents object, minors would still be allowed to travel to California and receive “gender affirming care” in the form of surgical castration, a hysterectomy, and whatever Big Pharma gender-bending pharmaceuticals are needed to become their “true selves.”
The bill received “overwhelming Democratic support,” passing both the House and Senate in California on August 31. (Related: California legislators have also tried to force Christian pastors to promote LGBT perversion from the pulpit.)
PayPal has decided to deplatform the account of UsForThem, a British parents’ group that advocated for keeping schools in the United Kingdom open during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In an interview with the Telegraph, UsForThem said it has been unable to access thousands of pounds in donations from its account after PayPal said it discontinued service to one of the group’s directors for allegedly violating the company’s user agreement. But according to UsForThem co-founder Molly Kingsley, PayPal has not provided the group with a clear explanation for the closure of the account.
Leaving your electric car charging overnight to have it ready in the morning seems like a good idea in theory. But in reality, research suggests doing so does more harm in the long run. Stanford scientists say that it’s more costly to charge your electric car at night and it could stress out your local electric grid.
Instead, researchers suggest drivers should switch to charging their vehicle at work or in public charging stations. Another added benefit to charging in the daytime at a public station is that it reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
With the effects of climate change more apparent than ever—frequent forest fires, widespread flooding, and stronger hurricanes—car companies are expecting people to start investing in electric-powered cars in the future. For example, California residents are expected to buy more electric cars as the state is planning to ban sales of gasoline-powered cars and light trucks in 2035.
The conservative legal advocacy group filed its initial FOIA request in March 2021, just after reports emerged about a handgun belonging to President Joe Biden’s son getting thrown in the trash near a Delaware high school in October 2018 by his sister-in-law Hallie Biden, with whom he was in a romantic relationship.
The Secret Service has denied any involvement in responding to the incident, and after the agency declined to hand over any relevant records, Judicial Watch decided to force the issue in federal court this week.
Judicial Watch has asked the court to force the Secret Service to hand over all records related to the incident, including “all records of communications sent to and from U.S. Secret Service officials internally and with outside parties regarding the reported purchase, possession, and disposal" of the gun in Delaware in 2018.
New York City school kids are losing their minds over the zonked-out drug addicts and raving vagrants they encounter every day – and are flocking to therapists to find ways to cope with the stress, The Post has learned.
In neighborhoods such as Hell’s Kitchen “a lot” of kids are now in therapy, according to mom Katie Hamill, 43, whose 7-year-old daughter is being treated for anxiety.
“My daughter has seen everything from fornication, masturbation, defecation, urination, you name it, she has seen it. … consistently and constantly. She is in this constant state of panic,” said Hamill, who works in real estate.
The little girl gets upset when she sees “the dying people” — the junkies who look dead whom she thinks no one is helping, the mom said. And she sees far too much vile behavior from adults, including one addict trying to rip out his hair after getting high at a West 42nd Street playground.
Could we actually see a Palestinian state be established within the next year or two? Just this week, there have been some new developments that have been absolutely stunning. For the first time in ages, both the president of the United States and the prime minister of Israel are openly calling for the creation of a Palestinian state. But just a couple of years ago, it seemed like such a move was extremely unlikely. Donald Trump was in the White House and Benjamin Netanyahu was the prime minister of Israel, and it was clear that a Palestinian state would not happen as long as either one of them was in power. Now they are both gone, and everything has changed.
This is extremely alarming, because the creation of a Palestinian state is something that I have been warning about for years.
When it actually happens, it will have enormous implications for the entire globe.
On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved legislation to expand police access to private cameras, including for suspected misdemeanor violations and prevention purposes.
A man who had already pled guilty to sexually coercing a teenage female relative was allegedly able to go on a sexual assault spree shortly before sentencing, thanks to systemic soft-on-crime policies in New York City.
