Three separate prosecutors reportedly met with White House aides before indicting former President Donald Trump, President Joe Biden’s political opponent.

The reported meetings suggest a coordinated attack against Biden’s 2024 rival. If coordination occurred, it lends credence to Trump’s belief that the indictments are election interference.

The timing of the indictments are peculiar. After Trump announced a reelection bid against Biden, four indictments hit Trump in four separate jurisdictions, each following revelations about the Biden family business.

In three cases, prosecutors reportedly met with the Biden administration before indicting Trump:

  1. Alvin Bragg: New York – “Stormy Daniels” Case (state)
  2. Jack Smith: Miami – “Documents” Case (federal)
  3. Fani Willis: Fulton County, Georgia (state)

A journalist who witnessed the scene at Al-Nasser hospital said the man warned others to leave before he was shot by a sniper

 The Palestinian man, sent inside the hospital to warn others to evacuate, was reportedly shot three times 

Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian man on Tuesday after sending him into al-Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis to warn others to evacuate, according to local media.

In footage shared online, the man is shown wearing protective overalls with his hands tied talking to Palestinians inside the hospital.

According to video testimony by Palestinian journalist Mohammed Akram al-Helo, which was shared by local media, the man was detained and arrested in the hospital, before being sent back to tell others that they needed to leave the building.

“He said the Israeli forces harassed him and treated him badly, and that if he did not do as he was told, they would storm the hospital, wound people and kill him,” Helo explained.

“When he finally left the hospital after doing what he was told, the Israeli soldiers shot him, he was shot three times in cold blood, in the vicinity of the hospital," he added. 

The Palestinian man, sent inside the hospital to warn others to evacuate, was reportedly shot three times 

Claire's Observations:In a truly civilized world, this would not be allowed to continue to happen.  Unfortunately, between Israel having compromised nearly every international politician of worth or substance ( and God only knows what it has on Biden), coupled with its nuclear arsenal, as well as the arsenals of other nuclear armed countries, like the US; China; France; Britain; Pakistan; India; and Russia, we do not live in a civilized world, but a massively compromised world, where massive ethnic cleansing is allowed to continue on a global scale, and no one dares stop it.  The IDF "Storm Trooper"s of the Middle East's "Assassination Nation", are proof positive of this.

On Friday, William Bock III, a former general counsel for the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and a lawyer with an impressive resume, resigned from his post at the NCAA, citing the organization’s refusal to protect girls’ sports.

Bock has served in the role for eight years and still has more than a year in his current term.  But Bock has chosen to stand up for women and said he can no longer stomach the organization’s radical policies.

Back in 2014, the state of California banned thin, disposable plastic shopping bags. They only allowed thicker, reusable plastic bags.

The problem, people still threw away the thicker bags. Now the weight of plastic bags being thrown away has increased by 30 percent.

As a result, the state now wants to ban all plastic bags completely.

This is obviously part of a strategy, because that’s what Soros does. He hatches backdoor plans to exert influence over American politics. A few years back, he pumped a ton of cash into district attorney races across the country and we all know how that worked out.

This is his new plan. Could there be more to this than gaining media influence?

The Met Office has been unable to back up a claim that storms in the U.K. are “more intense” due to the effects of climate change. The claim was made by senior Met Office meteorologist Claire Nasir on January 22nd on BBC 5 Live Breakfast in the aftermath of Storm Isha, and led to a freedom of information request for an explanation by investigative journalist Paul Homewood. The Met Office has replied that it is unable to answer the request due to the fact that the information “is not held”.

Drop the Charges,’ Says Amnesty Ahead of Key Julian Assange Hearing

"The risk to publishers and investigative journalists around the world hangs in the balance. Should Julian Assange be sent to the U.S. and prosecuted there, global media freedoms will be on trial, too."

 by Brett Wilkins Posted on February 14, 2024

Amnesty International on Tuesday renewed its call for the U.S. government to drop charges against jailed WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, whose final hearing before the United Kingdom’s High Court regarding his extradition to the United States is fast approaching.

Assange’s February 20-21 hearing before the High Court will determine whether the Australian journalist – who has been imprisoned in London’s Belmarsh Prison since April 2019 – has exhausted all of his U.K. appeals and will be extradited to the United States, where he has been charged with violating the 1917 Espionage Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act for publishing classified U.S. military documents and files on WikiLeaks over a decade ago.

“The risk to publishers and investigative journalists around the world hangs in the balance. Should Julian Assange be sent to the U.S. and prosecuted there, global media freedoms will be on trial, too,” said Julia Hall, Amnesty International’s expert on counterterrorism and criminal justice in Europe.

“Assange will suffer personally from these politically motivated charges and the worldwide media community will be on notice that they too are not safe,” Hall added. “The public’s right to information about what their governments are doing in their name will be profoundly undermined. The U.S. must drop the charges under the Espionage Act against Assange and bring an end to his arbitrary detention in the U.K.”

Claire's Observations:  Amnesty International is absolutely right here!!

Air Force, Space Force Announce Major Overhaul to Prepare for War With China

The Air Force is bringing back warrant officers to focus on information and technology warfare by Dave DeCamp February 14, 2024 at 4:29 pm ET Categories NewsTags China

The US Air Force and Space Force announced a plan for a major overhaul of force structures to prepare for a future war with China in the Asia Pacific.

The plan was announced on Monday by Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall and other officials and includes a total of 24 changes, including 16 for the Air Force, five for the Space Force, and three for the entire Department of the Air Force.

“We are out of time,” Kendall said at the Air & Space Forces Association’s Warfare Symposium, which was held in Colorado. “Why do I say that? It’s not that I enjoy sounding like a broken record. It’s because, for at least two decades, China has been building a military that is designed, purpose-built, to deter and defeat the United States if we intervene in the western Pacific.”

According to Military.com, the majority of the changes are vague renaming and rebranding efforts aimed at focusing on so-called “great power competition.” But some changes are significant, including bringing back warrant officers, which haven’t existed in the Air Force for 65 years.

The purpose of the warrant officers would be for them to focus on information and technology warfare. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Allvin said the idea of bringing back the rank is to have airmen who want to “code for their country” and be “network attack people.”

Allvin also said the Air Force would focus more on large-scale military exercises instead of the smaller-scale drills that it has prioritized for the past few decades. “Large-scale means multiple weapons systems, multiple capabilities, coming together in a combat-simulated environment and showing our ability to execute the mission that’s going to be expected of us in the high-end conflict,” he said.

Since taking his post as the civilian head of the Air Force, Kendall has made clear his priority is China. After being sworn in back in 2021, Kendall said: “So what are my intentions now that I have this job? At a breakfast on Capitol Hill shortly after I was sworn in, I was asked by Sen. Jon Tester what my priorities were. My answer was that I had three; China, China, and China.”

Claire's Observations:  What this country desperately needs, and right the heck now, is a Department of Peace, which is JUST as well funded as is the Pentagon, to find non-martial answers to geopolitical/economic challenges.  But before that happens, the "fat" of obscene waste, needs to be cut from the Pentagon budget and very quickly.

The UAE and other Arab nations are increasingly restricting the US’s ability to launch airstrikes from their soil as the US has been bombing Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, POLITICO reported on Wednesday.

The US relies on its military presence in several Arab nations to support its wars in the Middle East. Basing and overflights are being restricted as the populations of the Arab states don’t want to appear too supportive of the US as it backs the Israeli slaughter in Gaza.

The Jordanian government has come under increasing criticism from its citizens and members of parliament for its military relationship with the US after three US troops were killed at a secretive base in northeast Jordan on the Syrian border.

Sources told POLITICO that another reason the UAE and other unnamed Arab states are restricting US operations is because they seek better relations with Iran. “They don’t want to appear like they’re against Iran, and they don’t want to appear too close to the West and Israel for public opinion reasons,” one Western official said.

Heavy US and British Bombing Reported in Yemen’s Hodeidah Province

A series of US and British airstrikes were reported in Yemen’s western Red Sea province of Hodeidah on Wednesday as the US continues its heavy bombing campaign against the Houthis.

A correspondent for Al Mayadeen reported that Hodeidah was hit at least nine times throughout the day. Yemen’s Saba news agency reported that US and British strikes on Hodeidah continued into Wednesday evening, hitting several areas of the province.

So far, the US military has not announced the strikes, but US Central Command typically puts out press releases a few hours after they are finished, or sometimes they wait until the following day.

On Wednesday morning, CENTCOM announced that it launched a strike against Houthi-controlled Yemen a day earlier but didn’t specify where. The command claimed it hit a Houthis missile that was preparing to launch. A few hours later, the Houthis fired a missile into the Gulf of Aden, but CENTCOM said it did not hit any ships.

Since January 12, the US has launched around 30 rounds of missile strikes on Yemen. Some have been heavy bombings conducted with the UK that hit dozens of targets, while others have been unilateral US strikes against a single target.

According to the Houthis, the US and UK have conducted a total of 403 attacks on Yemen, including 203 airstrikes. The US has also been firing missiles from Navy warships in the Red Sea.

The Houthis, officially known as Ansar Allah, have shown no sign that they will back down in the face of the US military

Claire's Observations:  I would like to gently, but politely remind CENTCOM, that one of the most classic definitions of insanity, is doing something repeatedly in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome.  And this is because Israel's leadership refuses a ceasefire, and the start of the establishment of a legitimate Palestinian state.  These Houthi attacks are done relatively cheaply, compared to what US/British firepower in the region is costing.

Now, please don't get me started on the insanity of a theocracy in the 21st century, but I will make a very honest observation about Iran's leadership; they may be many things, but stupid... is not one of them.  They've done the math, and understand how to use the Houthis to drain Israel, the US and UK, both militarily and financially.

Looking at Russia's model against Ukraine, it would be logical for the Iranians to attempt to create a "war of attrition" in the Middle East, which Israel/the UK/and US may well not win.  And I would very much like to talk to the leadership of Centcom and ask the silent question, which must be asked, and answered out loud; What if Iran is attacked directly by Israel/US/ and UK, and China and Russia come to Iran's aid militarily?!?  I would like to hope that this is one of the questions keeping CENTCOM leadership awake at night.

Israel has been surveilling information provided to the United States by the Palestinian Authority regarding settler violence in the occupied West Bank in recent months, +972 Magazine and Local Call have learned.

Sources in Israeli intelligence told both sites that they have been tracking materials passed through private channels by the PA to the Office of U.S. Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority (USSC) in Jerusalem in order to “understand what the U.S. knows about settler violence.” The intention, they explained, is not to act against the perpetrators but to prevent the collected information from “developing into sanctions.”

U.S. officials, who confirmed that PA officials have been sending a great deal of information to the USSC on incidents of settler violence, told +972 and Local Call that this information contributed in part to President Joe Biden’s decision earlier this month to impose sanctions against four settlers known to have attacked Palestinians and left-wing Israeli activists. The officials added that the information led in recent months to the inclusion of dozens of other settlers on a “blacklist” prohibiting their entry into the United States.

Claire's Observations: So let me get this straight; the passage of this information to US intel, is NOT to prevent settler violence against Palestinians, but to prevent settlers perpetrating this violence not to be "blacklisted" from entry to the US??!?!?  

(Sigh) Absoflippinglutely disgusting, but perfectly predictable, from this administration!!!!
