The “lab leak” theory is in the news again. It is essentially revealed as a mainstream position now. As we always predicted it would be.

Two weeks ago the New York Times ran a long opinion piece endorsing it (we covered it in This Week).

Last week economist Jeffrey Sachs endorsed it in his 2-hour interview with Tucker Carlson,

and yesterday RFK jr endorsed it as part of his presidential campaign:

On May 14, Alexey Pertsev, one of the lead developers of Tornado Cash (TC), was found guilty of money laundering by a Dutch court and sentenced to sixty-four months in prison. TC is a privacy-preserving protocol developed for the Ethereum blockchain: it allows users to deposit funds in a TC pool and withdraw them to a different address, thus making it impossible for external observers to track financial activity. TC is completely noncustodial, meaning that users are in control of their own money at every step of the process. In other words, developers do not have any technical means to control how individuals interact with the TC smart contracts.

Because of its privacy-preserving features, TC was sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control in August 2022: citing concerns with money laundering and terrorist financing, the United States government made it illegal for US citizens to use TC. Soon after the blacklisting by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, Pertsev was arrested in the Netherlands; Roman Storm and Roman Semenov, the other TC lead developers, were arrested by US authorities in August 2023 and charged with money laundering and sanctions violations. The sentence against Pertsev creates a precedent that threatens not only developers’ freedom to write open-source code, but also users’ ability to transact without being tracked by unwanted third parties, including government snitches. The war on privacy waged by Western regulators is in full swing.

A flotilla from the Russian Navy’s Northern Fleet has begun training for long range strikes while en route to Cuba, where they will dock in the capital Havana just 350 kilometres off the coast of the United States. The small naval contingent is comprised of two combat vessels including the Yasen-M Class nuclear powered attack submarine Kazan, and the Gorshkov Class frigate Admiral Gorshkov, which represent by far Russia’s two most capable ocean going surface and submarine combatants. The Russian Defence Ministry reported that the ships delivered simulated long range strikes against enemy naval targets located over 600km away, with this following prior excesses by the Admiral Gorshkov simulating countering an air raid using its guns and anti-aircraft systems. The deployment of the ships to Cuba has been widely interpreted as one of many responses to escalating U.S. military support for Ukraine, including provision of longer ranged missiles and permitting them to be used against targets deep inside Russia, as well as providing personnel and targeting data by aircraft and satellite to facilitate attacks.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov referred to the United States as an “enemy” while speaking to reporters on Tuesday, in an apparent hardening of rhetoric between the two countries.

It remains unclear if the use of the word signals an official policy change, as the spokesman had previously argued that only President Vladimir Putin can make such decisions.

Washington’s refusal to allow former US marine, UN weapons inspector and RT contributor Scott Ritter to travel to St. Petersburg was “the latest manifestation of the rabid campaign to prevent US citizens from interacting with the Russian Federation” – which would only be “understandable” if it was somehow related to his former intelligence status, Peskov told journalists on Tuesday.

Ukrainian women are getting bodies of their dead sons and husbands without their organs. They were sold off on the black market. One woman said her son’s kidney is missing, and he’s alive.

We don’t know how many soldiers are involved, but it is happening.

Zelensky signed a bill allowing it but regulating it. However, Ukraine has a dangerous, free-wheeling black market.

Organ donations are a big business.

Illegal immigrants enjoy gaming a lot. Among their favorite things to do is figure out how to make money quickly. In Brooklyn, New York, illegal immigrants have recently taken up this pastime again since they discovered that, should they be unlucky enough to be struck by a driving vehicle, they can profit from jumping in front of them.

According to a January story in The New York Post, locals and law enforcement in Brooklyn’s residential neighborhood of Bergen Beach were alarmed by reports of illegal aliens jumping in front of passing cars.

Former Bergen Beach NYPD officer John B. told The Post, “They’re scaring people saying, ‘You just hit me, and I’m going to report it if you don’t give me the money.'”

On January 7, a freelance photographer tweeted that individuals in several parts of Brooklyn, New York, were having the same issue. A statement from Salvatore Calise, the previous president of the Bergen Beach Civic Association, alerting locals to the problem and detailing his victimization, was also attached to the tweet.

Russia today unexpectedly expanded the geographic area of ​​tactical nuclear weapons exercises to include the Leningrad Military Formation in addition to the Southern Military District. 

This is a deliberate deception of NATO, which has now realized that Russia is not carrying out a simple exercise... In fact, this mobilization coincides with the arrival of Russian ships in Cuba. Strange timing. 

The Leningrad military sector stretches from the border with Norway in the north to Belarus and includes the Northern Fleet and the Kaliningrad enclave in the Baltic Sea between Lithuania and Poland.

The Israeli military said Hezbollah fired about 215 projectiles against northern Israel this morning, setting off sirens across the area and setting fires. Officials downplayed the large number, saying there were no injuries.

This may not be a one-time event, as Hezbollah official Hachem Saffieddine said at a funeral ceremony for Hezbollah commander Taleb Sami Abdullah, that the movement would intensify attacks in “severity, strength, quantity and quality.”

Abdullah was a senior commander in Hezbollah and the highest ranked officer to be killed in the past eight months of Israeli attacks. He was killed late on Tuesday in southern Lebanon.

Recently published reports have revealed the systematic sexual abuse and torture of Palestinian men, women and children by Israeli forces during the assault on Gaza.

On Wednesday, a report published by the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry concluded that the frequency and severity of sexual and gender-based violations meant that they were likely “part of [Israeli security forces] operating procedures”.

The inquiry detailed multiple instances of Israeli forces publicly stripping Palestinian women of their clothes and veils, and subjecting them to sexual harassment in front of their families during ground operations in Gaza.

The commission noted that “Palestinian men and boys have been disproportionally affected and victimised on many grounds”, and heard several reports of male victims being subjected to sexual violence in Gaza and the West Bank by Israeli forces.

An official account representing Israel on social media platform X shared a video on Tuesday claiming "there are no innocent civilians" in Gaza.

The claim appeared within a post accusing Palestinian civilians of involvement in the Hamas-led attacks on southern Israel on 7 October and of harbouring captives taken by the group during the assault.

"We need to talk about the elephant in the room," the post starts, before continuing: "Many Gazan civilians participated in the horrific events of 7 October. It is also reported that Gazan civilians held Israeli hostages captive in their homes. The world must condemn this in the strongest terms."

In the video accompanying the statement, former captive Mia Shem is heard saying, "There are no innocent civilians there" -  a quote that is repeated in bold font in the video's captions.

Biden was convicted of false statements on a federal form when he, in 2018 and was buying a handgun.

On the form, he claimed that he was not on drugs or addicted.

However, his own book confirmed how he was taking drugs regularly during that time period.

His “Laptop from Hell” and other witnesses also affirmed that.

President Biden has said he would not provide a presidential pardon for Hunter.

Nevertheless, Trump has promised to help the embattled younger Biden.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump wrote:

“Hunter Biden is a terrible person who has funneled millions of dollars from other countries to his father.

“Even so, it is hard to blame him for wanting a gun, which he has a God-given right to have under the 2nd Amendment.

The number of house mice infected with H5N1 bird flu at a poultry farm in New Mexico has risen to nearly 50, federal officials disclosed on Tuesday, just a week after bird flu was found in rodents for the first time.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported in its weekly update that another 36 house mice had tested positive for H5N1 in Roosevelt County, New Mexico.

The first 11 cases were reported last week though only few details have been released about the outbreak.

A weekly report from the World Organization for Animal Health said the first 11 cases involve wild house mice at a poultry farm in Roosevelt County. A red fox at the same property was also found to be suffering from H5N1.

A top doctor has spoken out to warn the public that bird flu has been weaponized in bioweapon labs to make the virus more transmissible between humans.

Dr. Kelly Victory, a leading emergency medicine and disaster specialist, says her studies have uncovered such conclusive evidence that she can “guarantee” that avian influenza was “manipulated in a laboratory.”

During a new interview on the podcast show “Redacted,” Dr. Victory explains that bird flu should not be able to be transmitted between humans.

However, she warns that scientists have “manipulated” the virus using gain-of-function research in biolabs.

This gain-of-function manipulation of the virus would create “significant human-to-human transmission with this most recent outbreak,” she asserts.

All hell is breaking loose in America as more and more people can't keep up with their bills, and new reports show that many are resorting to desperate measures to be able to get by. The cost of living in the United States is rising much faster than workers’ paychecks, and our standard of living is rapidly deteriorating. Our country has reached a stage where only the elites are thriving while everyone else is being financially eviscerated.

Katherine Watt has been corresponding with a reader who is researching the history of US public health and regulatory agencies.  Records before 1973 are difficult to locate.  However, what has become clear is that the origins of these agencies are not what they make them out to be.

Why are they lying about their origins?  Because, Watt says, “they have maintained a bunch of empty office buildings that serve only as mailing addresses … There are no technicians in the buildings, there’s no equipment and no sample testing occurs.”

Katherine Watt is a mom, Catholic, and paralegal from Pennsylvania, USA. On her Substack page ‘Bailiwick News’ she documents how, since at least World War II, US Congress has been waging war on the people by passing legislation which makes it easier and easier for them to be destroyed – legally – by the pharmaceutical industry.

One of Watt’s Substack readers is researching the pre-1972 statutory and regulatory history of some of the USA’s public health agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) and the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).

Moderna’s Covid vaccine was manufactured by a government contractor with close connections to the CIA, FDA and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, according to a bombshell report.

Moderna in 2021 hired and tasked a supposedly new pharmaceutical manufacturing company called National Resilience (Resilience) to make all of their Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

The company apparently goes by several names, including Nanotherapeutics, Nanosphere Inc, Ology Bioservices, and Government Resilience Services, independent journalist Destiny Rezendes first reported last year.

In the era of hybrid work, with employees splitting their time between two days in the office and three days working remotely, employers have ramped up using productivity monitoring software. However, employees have outsmarted some of these surveillance programs with gadgets like mouse movers, otherwise known as 'mouse jigglers.'

The popularity of mouse jigglers has exploded on TikTok in the last several years. Firms have been cracking down on these devices following a surge in fake work activity, which has weighed on productivity. 

Wells Fargo, in a new disclosure with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, first reported by Bloomberg, had terminated over a dozen employees in its wealth- and investment-management unit for their use of mouse jigglers. 

They were "discharged after review of allegations involving simulation of keyboard activity creating the impression of active work," according to the disclosures.

“Israel has offered a comprehensive new proposal.” -Joe Biden, May 31st

“Conditions for ending the war have not changed … the destruction of Hamas military and governing capabilities, the freeing of all hostages and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel.” -Bibi Netanyahu, May 31st

“It’s an Israeli proposal.” -John Kirby, June 4th

June 10th: UN Security Council adopts Biden’s proposal as a resolution

“First, let me be very clear: Israel has accepted the proposal. In fact, they were critical in putting it forward. That is the official position of the Israeli government.” -Antony Blinken, June 10th

CNN, reporting on comments by Israel’s UN representative made on June 10th:

 Israel has vowed to persist with its military operation in Gaza, saying it won’t engage in “meaningless” negotiations with Hamas, shortly after the United Nations Security Council overwhelmingly approved a US-backed ceasefire plan intended to bring an end to the eight-month war.

Joe Rogan recently had comedian Tim Dillon on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” and one subject the duo broached was the 2024 election.

“Trump will beat [Biden], I think, from jail,” Dillon speculated.

“Yeah, 100%,” Rogan agreed. “But I don’t know if it’s real ... I don’t want to cry election fraud, but why would I imagine that they would manipulate everything openly except the election?”

“Is it not possible that they haven’t gone off Joe Biden because there was some f***ery in the last election? Is it not possible to some degree that they have this rabid insistence on this clearly dementia-ridden guy because promises have been made, and there are people in positions of power that could speak?” Dillion asked.

The Harris Faulkner-led “Outnumbered” panel on Fox News criticized the Biden campaign’s strategy for attracting younger voters, which includes a variety of freebies and sex-related gifts.

The segment began with co-host Emily Compagno pointing out President Biden’s tanking approval numbers among young Americans while she knocked some of the ideas the campaign is planning to implement.

“Biden is set to hold a second ritzy fundraiser with [Barack Obama], George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Jimmy Kimmel in Los Angeles later this week. And Biden allies of the president are also launching a new super PAC aimed at the young voters: Won’t PAC Down,” she began.

“It’s hired millennials and Gen Z writers, producers, and directors to craft Pro-Biden content to try and sell the 81-year-old to young voters. And a group of Democratic donors are reportedly trying out — just wait for this — new party events, party-style events to court young adults. They include free beer, manicures, birth control pills, and a sweepstakes to win a month’s worth of rent,” she added.

“Staff members can most effectively serve our students, faculty, fellow staff members, and other stakeholders when working together in an environment that fosters collaboration, innovation, availability, and reliability,” Hartzell said. “Our vibrant campus community helps distinguish our great University, and as members of our staff, you contribute to that vibrancy each day.”

Hartzell tasked campus leaders with making a plan for changes by July and fully implementing them one week before the fall semester begins.

How the scam works:

You receive an email advertising a guaranteed loan. The email displays a logo and contact information for what appears to be a legitimate loan company. Before proceeding with the offer, you search for the company online to determine if they can be trusted. You find that the name and contact information matches with a legitimate company, so you proceed with the loan. 

Once you agree to the loan, the "lender" takes your personal banking information and deposits the loan into your account via a check. Then, they demand you buy insurance for the loan before the check officially clears. Unfortunately, the loan check turns out to be fake, something victims often don't realize until after they pay the "insurance." One victim told BBB, “The money will be available the next day, but then it will be rejected by your bank three days later.” 

These scammers know that consumers are increasingly aware of phishing attempts, so they use the identity of a business that can easily be verified online. This allows them to gain target's trust and get access to their bank account.

Webmaster addition: I am getting dozens of these right now.

The European Union’s top court has slapped Hungary with a 200-million-euro ($216m) fine and imposed a daily one-million-euro ($1.08m) penalty for failing to follow the bloc’s asylum laws and for illegally deporting migrants.

Hungary’s anti-immigrant government has taken a hard line on people entering the country since well over one million refugees and asylum seekers entered Europe in 2015, most of them fleeing conflict in Syria. It erected border fences and forcefully tried to stop many from entering.
