The Georgia Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily reinstated a state law that allows abortions through the first six weeks of pregnancy.

In a one-page order issued on Wednesday, the court overturned a lower court's decision to block the Georgia law. The Supreme Court's order issuing a stay in the case means the law is reinstated while the court considers an appeal on the merits from Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr.

The Superior Court of Fulton County this month ruled that the law violated the U.S. Constitution when it was enacted by the state legislature three years ago. It was blocked for three years until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, freeing states to pass their own laws on abortion.

One of the two largest railroad unions said Monday it had rejected a new labor deal brokered by the White House, inching closer to a strike that could disrupt supply chains in December. The other union voted to ratify it.

Unions and railroads are back at the negotiating table. By law, Congress can intervene to impose an agreement if the two sides remain deadlocked.

The SMART Transportation Division said it would head back to the negotiating table with railroads with a goal of reaching a deal by Dec. 8. If no agreement is reached, the union could strike Dec. 9. However, the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen (BRS) is on a schedule where their cooling-off period ends Dec. 4, opening the way for a strike Dec. 5.

Eight of the industry’s unions have ratified the contract. But if one group strikes, others say they won’t cross picket lines.

The recent popularity of so-called “Drag Queen Story Hour” apparently doesn’t include the parents of school-aged children, who overwhelmingly oppose such events in which men dressed flamboyantly as women or female strippers perform for children.

That's according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds 60% of American adults consider “Drag Queen Story Hour” not appropriate for children, including 44% who say it’s "not at all appropriate."

Only 29% say “Drag Queen Story Hour” is appropriate for children, including 11% who consider it "very appropriate." Another 10% are not sure.

Among those who are parents or parents of school-aged children, a slim majority (51%) say they believe “Drag Queen Story Hour” is "not at all appropriate" for children.

Now-former Lieutenant Colonel Bradley Miller has resigned from his post in the Army after serving the United States military for over 19 years, citing the Pentagon’s irresponsible and unlawful mRNA mandate.

A highly decorated military officer, Miller commanded a battalion in the 101st Airborne Division, and he was a graduate of the Army’s prestigious School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS).

You can sleep easy tonight. The World Health Organization announced that it’s working with Big Tech to combat misinformation online. It didn’t define what “misinformation” it’s targeting, or even what “misinformation” is, but if you see anything that looks suspicious, WHO wants you to report it right away so social media platforms can flag it or take it down.1

 

Sound disturbing? More like a nightmare, but it’s one that is, unfortunately, not a dream. As John Campbell, a retired nurse and teacher based in England, said in the video above, “It’s almost as if they want to have an influence over all parts of social media.”2 Yes, indeed, and they’re quite open about it too. WHO states that it’s “changing social media policy and guidelines,” and:3

“WHO works with social media policy departments to ensure company policy and guidelines for content providers are fit for purpose. For example, WHO worked with YouTube to enhance their COVID-19 Misinformation Policy and provide guidelines for content providers to ensure no medical misinformation related to the virus proliferates on their platform.”

As many expected he would do, Elon Musk has changed his mind and decided to keep Twitter as is with independent media outlets prohibited from posting content.

In a November 18 announcement, Musk announced that Twitter’s new policy under his leadership “is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.” What he means by this is that only “trusted” content will be seen by others using the platform while independent content remains shadow-banned and hidden from view.

Webmaster addition: Well, yeah, and your cars suck too, fella!

Old-fashioned socialist and founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Klaus Schwab, sat down with CGTN’s Tian Wei during the APEC CEO Summit in Thailand.

During the course of their discussion, Schwab was questioned about whether or not the leaders of the world were able to reach an agreement in order to forward their globalist agenda.

“Among the G20, you were there meeting some of the leaders as well. Professor Schwab, what do you make up the result? Finally, they put something as a statement, and it seems quite positive with all the voices included,” Wei said.

“I think it’s positive, it’s already positive. So the fact that everybody agreed about the statement, which we haven’t had the last years,” Schwab said.

It can be recalled that Schwab attended the recently concluded G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia, along with another globalist, Bill Gates, where they promoted the “New World Order” to world leaders.

The G20 leaders issued a joint declaration at the end of the summit advocating for a universal standard on proof of vaccination for international travel and urging the creation of “global digital health networks to strengthen prevention and response to future pandemics.”

NASA unexpectedly lost contact with its moonbound Orion capsule early Wednesday morning (Nov. 23), for reasons that remain unclear.

The uncrewed Orion has been performing well since launching toward the moon last Wednesday (Nov. 16) on NASA's Artemis 1 mission. But this Wednesday (Nov. 23) brought a blip: Mission controllers lost communication with Orion at 1:09 a.m. EST (0609 GMT) while reconfiguring a link between the capsule and the Deep Space Network, the set of radio dishes that NASA uses to talk to its farflung spacecraft.

"The reconfiguration has been conducted successfully several times in the last few days, and the team is investigating the cause of the loss of signal," NASA officials wrote in a brief update on Wednesday(opens in new tab).

A tiny NASA moon probe failed to perform a crucial maneuver as planned on Monday (Nov. 21), but the cubesat might still be able to salvage its water-hunting mission.

The LunaH-Map spacecraft is one of 10 cubesats that launched as ride-along payloads last Wednesday (Nov. 16) on NASA's Artemis 1 mission. 

LunaH-Map was designed to map the distribution and abundance of hydrogen — and, by extension, water ice — near the moon's south pole. Such data is of great interest to NASA's Artemis program, which aims to build a crewed research outpost in this region.

Bloomberg News reports that inflation is causing Thanksgiving dinner costs to “bust wallets” while some traditional food items might be on a “first come, first served” basis.

“Any way you slice it, this Thanksgiving is going to cost more,” the outlet laments, citing a jump in the price of flour, cookies, eggs, and turkey, the latter of which is up 17% from the previous year.

“It’s all part of historic food inflation that’s hammering consumers also grappling with sky-high prices for everything from fuel to housing,” they write.

Aside from surging prices, consumers will also have to worry about “scarcity” due to supply chain issues.

Two economists reported Tuesday in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that President Joe Biden is cutting Medicare benefits through the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, which cuts payments for prescription drugs for seniors.

Casey B. Mulligan and Tomas J. Philipson wrote:

President Biden has accused Republicans of scheming to cut Medicare. In fact it is his signature legislation, the Inflation Reduction Act, that will lead to benefit cuts and premium increases for seniors. Medicare’s popular drug-coverage program is headed for a painful amputation.

The private plans participating in Medicare’s prescription-drug program, known as Part D, currently draw on three sources of revenue to finance prescriptions: out-of-pocket payments from patients, premium payments made by plan members, and subsidies from the federal government. In 2025, under the Inflation Reduction Act, both government subsidies and out-of-pocket payments by patients are scheduled to be cut sharply. The difference will have to be made up by premiums. But the statute inhibits this third revenue source, which is also subsidized, from increasing more than 6%. That’s hardly enough to cover inflation, let alone compensate for the other two revenue losses.

Iran and Turkey have started trading electricity for a first time, says an Iranian Energy Ministry official, amid Iran’s plans to launch power exports to European countries via the Turkish grid.

A spokesman of Iran’s state electricity company Tavanir said on Wednesday that Iran and Turkey had started trading 600 megawatts (MW) of electricity after successfully synchronizing their power grids.

Mostafa Rajabi said electricity trading between Iran and Turkey uses a modern technology that will protect electricity transfer between the two countries from frequency disruptions.

Rajabi said under the power trading arrangement between Iran and Turkey, each side will supply electricity to the partner power grid for 3.5 days of the week, adding that the amount of electricity traded could increase if the current pilot project is successful.

The Russian State Duma at its Wednesday session approved the second reading of a bill banning propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, pedophilia and information capable of causing someone to seek gender reassignment surgery.

About 400 legislators, including Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, are among the bill’s authors. As Volodin noted during the meeting, the bill is being approved exclusively in the interests of Russians. "We should do everything in order to protect our children and those who want to lead a normal life," he emphasized.

The document provides for a ban on propaganda of non-traditional relations, pedophilia as well as a ban on disseminating information about LGBT in the media, on the internet, and in commercials, books and movies. It also includes a ban on statements which may induce teenagers to gender reassignment surgery on the Internet, in the media and in books, audiovisual services, movies and commercials.

As of 10:12 AM eastern US time on Wednesday, there is an ongoing and massive missile attack by the Russian Armed Forces on Ukraine.  Air Raid Alert Sirens are sounding in all the red colored areas on the map above.  What is known at 16:00 (Moscow Time):

In the afternoon, the RF Armed Forces again launched a series of strikes on targets on Ukrainian territory. The targets were once again elements of the country's energy infrastructure.


Kiev: a series of missile arrivals and explosions. TETs-5 in Vydubychi and TETs-6, which were already the target of attacks in October, were preliminarily hit.

In the left-bank part of the city, power outages began, water supply was completely lost, and the metro stopped working.


Nikolaev: explosions in the city, the city is de-energized. Local resources reported problems at the South Ukrainian NPP and an emergency shutdown of power units, which indirectly indicates the defeat of the 750 kV substation.

US/Western regimes abhor truth and full disclosure.

Where they go, so do their MSM co-conspirators.

Nothing they report on major issues can be taken at face value.

Mind-manipulating fake news is their stock and trade.

The self-styled newspaper of record, NYT, has been featuring state-approved fake news over the real thing since the mid-19th century.

By supporting Nazified Ukraine’s war on what’s now Russian territory since spring 2014, the Times and other MSM hit rock bottom.

In its latest fake news edition, the Times continued to pretend that battered and beaten Ukraine is advancing against overpowering Russian firepower.

The Times, other MSM and regimes they serve consistently ignore US-orchestrated and directed state terror by dominant Ukrainian Nazis, notably against residential communities and Russia’s Zaporozhye NPP.

Have you checked on the health of your investments lately?  If not, you may be surprised to find out where things currently stand.  As the “everything collapse” accelerates, trillions upon trillions of dollars of wealth is being wiped out.  Many that thought that they were financially set for the rest of their lives are now in panic mode as asset values rapidly crumble.  Just look at what happened to Sam Bankman-Fried.  He was worth 16 billion dollars coming into this month, and now the value of his assets has been “reduced to zero”.  In fact, when you factor in all the money that he owes to creditors, it is likely that his net worth is actually less than zero.

That is how fast it can happen.
