"Virtue gives birth to tranquility, tranquility to leisure, leisure to disorder, disorder to ruin… and similarly from ruin, order is born, from order virtue, from virtue, glory and good fortune." -- Niccolò Machiavelli

A 10-billion-dollar bank was just shut down by U.S. regulators in the first big bank failure of 2024. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation announced the collapse of another major financial institution just a few days ago, the sixth of such kind over the last 12 months. The event has triggered fears of cascading bank failures, with economists warning about rising risks and mounting stress for almost 300 institutions. As economic uncertainty continues to weight on financial markets and add pressure on the commercial real estate sector, many banks that seem too big to fail are now facing unprecedented losses that could put them on a very destructive path, the experts say.

After the US withdrew from a major nuclear arms treaty with Russia in 2019, the Pentagon began to develop weapons that would have violated that agreement. Such a covert missile has now been deployed to the Philippines as part of the US military buildup surrounding China. The New York Times reports this system to be a covert missile launcher that Washington believes could jeopardize Xi Jinping’s position as president of China.

Capable of firing Tomahawks and other munitions, the Typhon launcher is concealed in a 40-foot shipping container and can hold up to four missiles. The Defense Department first deployed the launchers to the Philippines during war games late last month, after which China accused the US of “stoking military confrontation.”

According to the Times, Washington hopes to use the Typhon launchers to protect Taiwan from a Chinese attack. Sources who spoke with the outlet believe that Typhon’s strike power is enough to thwart an invasion of Taiwan and even force Xi from power in Beijing if an invasion fails.

On Tuesday, Joe Biden tried mend fences with Muslim Americans by inviting members of the community for a meeting, but the event was a disastrous display of the president’s disregard for Palestinian life. Biden’s first problem was that, as a result of his unwavering public support for Israel’s war in Gaza (sporadically tempered by rhetorical but ineffectual criticism), very few Muslims wanted to meet him. Most of his invitations were turned down; in the end, the event had only six attendees. One guest, Dr. Thaer Ahmad, who has recently been in Gaza providing medical aid, left after five minutes, saying he wanted to show the president “the pain and the mourning that my community was in.” Ahmad’s action was partly motivated by the fact that Biden continues to ramp up military aid to Israel. Ahmad is returning to Gaza to provide medical assistance, knowing full well he could be killed by bombs supplied by his own government—a situation he finds painful to think about.

According to NBC News, another guest, Dr. Nahreen H. Ahmed, “was taken aback when she showed Biden prints of photos of malnourished children and women in Gaza—to which Biden responded that he had seen those images before. The problem, the doctor said, was that she had printed the photos from her own iPhone.” Biden was clearly making up the fiction of having seen the pictures before as a way not to have to look at them. As Ahmed rightly notes, Biden’s behavior “speaks volumes to the dismissive nature of the administration when it comes to strong-willed action towards a permanent cease-fire or, at a bare minimum, a red line on the invasion of Rafah.”

Biden’s callousness at that meeting is all the more striking because, when dealing with non-Palestinians, the president has long been famous for his empathy and fellow-feeling, especially for those distressed by death. Biden is a great humanitarian—unless the humans are Palestinians.

When James Madison was a member of Congress in 1791 and charged with drafting the Bill of Rights, he made two grammatical demands. One was that the word “the” precede “freedom of speech” in the First Amendment, and the other was a command in the Ninth Amendment that the “rights retained by the people,” rights too numerous to enumerate, “shall not be disparaged” by the government.

This principle – that our rights preexisted the government – would be played out over and over in litigation in the centuries following the ratification of the Bill of Rights. The ratification itself was insisted upon by five of the new states who threatened to leave the new union unless restraints were added to the Constitution so as to protect the individual liberties that the Declaration of Independence – then only 15 years old – stated unambiguously were granted by the Creator.

Though the colonists deeply valued all the rights articulated in the Declaration, truly it was the freedom of speech that drove the revolution. Yes, the Americans had Kentucky long guns that enabled the colonial militias to shoot and kill British forces from distances that the British weaponry was unable to reach. Yes, the Americans were animated by defending their homeland.

But it was speech – sung in taverns, written in broadsides, delivered in sermons, distributed in pamphlets, adopted by the Continental Congress and colonial legislatures, and proclaimed in town squares from Boston to Charleston – that whipped the brushfires of freedom into a revolution and a new nation.

Pro-Israel counter-protesters attacked students in the pro-Palestinian encampment at a US university for several hours, including beating them with sticks, spraying them in the face with chemicals, and launching fireworks as weapons, a New York Times investigation published on 4 May showed

Students erected the encampment at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) on 25 April as part of a broader student movement throughout the US to protest Israel’s genocide in Gaza. 

On Tuesday, UCLA officials declared the encampment illegal. Later that day, a group of Israel supporters attacked the encampment.

According to The Times’ review of video footage taken by protesters and journalists, the attack began when a group of counter-protesters started tearing away metal barriers that had been in place to cordon off pro-Palestinian protestors.

"Will Netanyahu be arrested for war crimes? This is a major concern of the Israeli government but no matter what happens, the US government will step in and support Israel. In today's video,  plan of the US government to save Netanyahu and Israel no matter what happens!"     Time is up for Biden and Netanyahu    May 5, 2024   12 minutes

The Biden administration is claiming the International Criminal Court has no jurisdiction to charge Israeli officials for war crimes. This comes after rumors that the ICC may be close to issuing arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials over possible crimes in Gaza. The International Court of Justice has rejected a request by Nicaragua to order Germany to halt exporting arms to Israel, but the court declined to throw out the case. For more, we (Amy Goodman) speak with human rights attorney and war crimes prosecutor Reed Brody, who says ICC charges would be a “huge” development. “Since Nuremberg, no international tribunal has issued an arrest warrant for a Western official. For decades, we’ve had this double standard where international justice has only been effective for crimes committed by leaders of developing countries or by enemies of the U.S. like Vladimir Putin,” says Brody.”

The US government claims that TikTok is a national security threat because China can collect data on its users for “intelligence gathering.” Give me a break! The House of Representatives passed a bill to ban TikTok unless Byte Dance, the Chinese parent company “divests” from the app within six months or so, in other words, they are forcing Byte Dance to sell TikTok within a certain time period in order for it to operate in the US. Former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that he is putting together an investor group to supposedly buy TikTok. 

The reality is that they are not going after TikTok because of China’s “intelligence gathering” on US citizens, it is because Western governments, Israel and their mainstream media networks are being exposed for their lies and propaganda more than ever before by various alternative media websites, blogs, social media, and video-sharing platforms such as TikTok

Banning TikTok will Only Motivate Us to Create Other Platforms    

Social Media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter (although owned by Elon Musk) have been completely hijacked by the government censorship regime. The Western political establishment, Globalist bankers, Zionists, Multi-national corporations such as Big Oil and Big Pharma and others around the world are facing an information war that they are clearly losing. 

The internet has given us the tools to fight the mainstream media and their lies.  Several social media platforms have grown to be a vital tool to challenge government and corporate propaganda such as TikTok, but there are also other various types of online-video platforms such as Rumble, Bit Chute, Odysee (part of LBRY, a blockchain based file-sharing and payment network) and we must include instant messaging services such as Telegram and VK where you can post articles and videos as well. 

The point here is that regardless of how certain governments such as the US and the European Union who have banned foreign media companies such as Russia’s RT News and Iran’s Press TV, they also have plans to ban social media platforms, but it won’t work.      

They believe that banning TikTok will prevent people from getting the truth especially to what is happening in Palestine, but they are wrong, it will only help motivate people to create new platforms and other ideas, they will create new channels of information that would get out to the public.  Whether they ban TikTok or not, the genie is out of the bottle, the truth can never be suppressed.

Was the police incident seen at Columbia University in the US against pro Palestine protesters, triggered by an Israeli spook? Right, so how many times have we heard accusations, usually from pro Zionist sources that Hamas have infiltrated bodies to push their nefarious end goals? They were accused of infiltration the UN aid agency UNRWA as a very well known example of course, not that Israel could present any evidence and as such even staunch pro Israeli nations like Germany have restored funding to them by this point, though some nations are still holding out defying logic or common sense, such as the US and the UK.

In the IDF flyers dropped in the Gaza Strip this morning, the military warns Palestinians against approaching the borders with Israel or Egypt.

One flyer, addressed to all Gaza Strip residents, announces the expansion of the designated humanitarian zone in the al-Mawasi area.

“In this area the expanded humanitarian aid will continue. The IDF will continue fighting the terror organizations that use you as human shields. Therefore: Gaza City is a dangerous fighting zone; avoid crossing to the north of Wadi Gaza,” it continues.

“It is prohibited to come near to the eastern and southern security fences,” the IDF flyer adds.

The second flyer, addressed to the residents and those sheltering in eastern Rafah neighborhoods, warns that “the IDF is about to operate with force against the terror organizations in the area you currently reside, as the IDF has operated so far.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday released a utopian plan for a rebuilt Gaza called “Gaza 2035.”

The Prime Minister’s Office published a 9-page PowerPoint file describing a future where Gaza is de-radicalized from Islamism, transformed into a trade hub of prosperity and innovation and integrated into the Middle East’s economy.

The “Gaza 2035” plan seeks to leverage Gaza’s geopolitical role in trade routes between Cairo and Baghdad, and Europe and Yemen.

The US Department of Agriculture has approved “Piggy Sooy,” a new kind of soybean that has protein genes from pigs spliced into its DNA. The approval will allow the company to plant and transport these new soybeans without permits.

“We believe this milestone sets the stage for a revolution in the food-industrial biotech landscape, paving the way for expedited adoption of molecular farming technology by other industry players,” said co-founder and CTO Martin Salinas.

Moolec announced the development of Piggy Sooy in June of last year, as part of its “Meat Replacement Program.” Its patented soybeans contain genes for the expression of porcine myoglobin. The beans have a pink hue and will be sold whole, rather than having the animal protein extracted from them and processed.

Moolec will market Piggy Sooy as an alternative to meat in products like sausages and burgers. The company plans to partner with other companies and may license its patented soybeans for use.

Russia has warned that Poland will make itself a 'priority target' if it hosts NATO nuclear weapons on its territory. In a Thursday statement Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said "Moves in this direction will not provide greater security (for Poland or other nations that host such weapons)." He was further quoted in Russian media as saying

Moscow considers any expansion of NATO’s nuclear-sharing arrangement as “deeply destabilizing” in nature, “and in fact threatening” Russia, Ryabkov was quoted as saying by TASS on Thursday. This applies to joint missions, where non-nuclear members of the US-led bloc are trained to use American hardware, and even more so to the permanent stationing of such weapons “which hotheads in Warsaw are talking about,” he said.

In follow-up, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stipulated that "any nuclear weapons deployed to Poland would be legitimate targets in the event of war with the alliance." Russian media translations said Moscow would see this as a "priority target".

All of this was in response to words issued by Polish President Andrzej Duda in a Monday interview. He said his country is "ready" to host nuclear weapons should NATO decide to do so as reinforcement of its eastern flank. It remains that the United States chiefly supplies and oversees NATO's nuclear-sharing program, thus any possible future nukes in Poland would be supplied by Washington.

Gaza Genocide – Israel Intensifies Raids, Resistance Fights Back

The majority of Palestinians killed by Israel in Gaza are women and children. (Photo: Mahmoud Ajjour, The Palestine Chronicle)

By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

In recent hours, Gaza has experienced heavy Israeli airstrikes in Gaza City, the Central Governorate, and Khan Yunis.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Resistance factions have continued to confront the occupying forces, launching attacks on the Netzarim axis.

Israeli aircraft have carried out multiple strikes across the Gaza Strip, targeting residential areas and farmland, resulting in numerous casualties and injuries, Al-Jazeera reported.

Reports indicate intense gunfire from Israeli vehicles stationed in the Netzarim area, particularly in the Sheikh Ajlin neighborhood.

Additionally, Israeli artillery has targeted key locations such as the power plant area in Gaza, as well as Al-Mughraqa, Al-Zahraa, and the Wadi Gaza Bridge

It is a good document by the intrepid Congressional Research Service, which exposes a rather sad state of the affairs in the US military industry but it also exposes a very dramatic lag in air and anti-missile defense in the US across the board. This was prepared in February this year, before Iran demonstrated capabilities or rather lack thereof of all those systems. Moreover, the rigidity of the "planning" in terms of positioning US Navy's Aegis DDGs as possible ABM "outposts" completely ignore the fact that no US Navy system can intercept anything similar to 3M22 with its Mach=9+ and 1,500 kilometer range. Yet, they still grasp for the obsolete systems and operations based on them. 

Obviously claims like these are laughable:

Since November 2022, the southern Irish State has been rocked by protests related to the current immigration policy of Leinster House, which has seen vast amount of male migrants placed into wildly unsuitable locations such as an inner city office block and children’s primary school, with no prior consultation being held beforehand with representatives of the communities where these men had been placed.

In November 2023, tensions would spill over when riots swept Dublin following the stabbing of three schoolchildren and their teacher by a migrant previously subjected to a deportation order, garnering worldwide media attention and leading to the government of then-Taoiseach and WEF ‘Young Global Leader’ Leo Varadkar introducing Facial Recognition Technology laws – a key component of the Great Reset agenda.

Last week, tensions would again spill over in the small rural town of Newtownmountkennedy, located in County Wicklow. Following weeks of peaceful protest by local residents in opposition to plans to house male migrants in a former hospital in the town, matters would come to a head when workmen, accompanied by masked security, arrived on site to begin work. Irish police would respond in a brutal manner, attacking local residents, pepper spraying a female journalist and imposing martial law on the sleepy town, resulting in scenes akin to a military occupation.

The US will not enter into a defense agreement with Saudi Arabia unless the kingdom recognizes the state of Israel, US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan has said. However, Riyadh has made any recognition deal contingent on the Israelis agreeing to work toward the formal establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

Media reports last week suggested that Washington and Riyadh were drawing closer to signing a bilateral security pact, even as progress toward a Saudi-Israel normalization deal remained stalled. According to Reuters, the pact would see the US enter into a formal alliance with Saudi Arabia and help with its civilian nuclear program in exchange for Riyadh cutting some economic ties with China.

Speaking at a Financial Times event in London on Saturday, Sullivan insisted that no deal will be possible without Saudi Arabia recognizing Israel.

Russian diplomats should be confined to their destination countries within the EU and not allowed to move freely around the bloc, the Czech government has argued, according to Der Spiegel. Prague regards Moscow’s diplomatic staff as “spies” probing for potential weaknesses in the bloc, the German outlet reported on Saturday, citing official documents.

The Czech authorities have been seeking to restrict freedom of movement for Russian diplomats since at least last summer, the article claims. The nation’s foreign minister, Jan Lipavsky, reportedly revisited the issue last month during an EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Luxembourg.

“Espionage and propaganda are the main tasks of many Russian diplomats in the EU,” according to a document presented by Prague earlier the same month in Brussels, according to Der Spiegel. The list of alleged activities of Russian diplomatic mission staffers reportedly includes “logistics for sabotage and acts of terrorism.”

American drug manufacturer Pfizer has its sights set on the cancer treatment market now that the Covid-19 pandemic is over and global demand for its vaccines and coronavirus drugs is falling, CEO Albert Bourla told Fox Business on May 1. 

The company expects to score big on “blockbuster” cancer drugs, Bourla said, as the pharma giant seeks to reverse its post-Covid business decline. The pandemic brought record revenue to the company. In 2022 alone, Pfizer’s total sales amounted to $157 billion, with its Covid vaccine accounting for $37.8 billion and its antiviral treatment pill, Paxlovid, bringing in another $18.9 billion. 

In 2023, sales were down by more than half and accounted for $71 billion. The company’s shares have fallen by 42% since the end of 2022 amid the rapid decline in demand for its Covid-related products. This led to a major cost-cutting campaign, including hundreds of layoffs at its UK, US, and Irish facilities. 

Webmaster addition: And how lucky for Pfizer that cancer rates are exploding right now!!!!!

The liberal Manhattan Democrat said Netanyahu has done more damage to his own people than anyone since a Jewish monarch of the Hasmonean dynasty who invited Roman invaders into the Holy Land to help him defeat an internal rebellion in the first century BC.

“He only got one competitor for the worst Jewish leader in history: that would be (a king who) invited in the Romans,” Nadler told Politico in a new podcast.

Nadler’s unflattering comparison was to John Hyrcanus II, a weak Jewish leader who ruled over a portion of the modern-day West Bank near Jerusalem several decades before the time of Jesus.

Hyrcanus II asked his Roman allies to help him defeat a rival Jewish faction but the tactic backfired spectacularly and led to the invaders effectively subjugating the Jews.

Nadler’s pointed remarks came as Sen. Chuck Schumer confirmed that he has no objections to Netanyahu delivering a speech to a joint session of Congress.

Schumer, who has also clashed with Netanyahu, says he will eventually join House Speaker Mike Johnson in issuing a formal invitation to the right-wing Israeli premier, but it remains uncertain when such a speech might take place.

“The timing is being worked out,” Angelo Roefaro, Schumer’s spokesman, said Friday.

Netanyahu hit back at Schumer, saying foreigners like the New Yorker should stay out of internal Israeli politics.

Claire's Observations:  Mr. Prime Minister, a word, please; as long as you are using US taxpayer money to fund the bombs and bullets being used for this desperately attempted "Final Solution" against the Palestinians in the form of a genocide, it is both Senator Schumer's business and as a taxpayer, it is my business also.

As long as I see images of Palestinian children, trapped and killed in the rubble of their homes; of children with amputated limbs, because they got caught in the wreckage of their home; of women losing their children to opportunistic illnesses which never should happen to a child, courtesy of horrendous wounds and malnutrition, this Israeli genocide is my business.

As long as you refuse any reasonable cease-fire, for an exchange of hostages, this Israeli genocide is my business.

You seem to believe that if the Senate Passes the AAA Act,  https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/house-bill/6090/text,  this  will squelch dissent both on college campuses, and in the greater American independent Press. 

You think that there will not  be any discussion on the issue of this Israeli genocide, for fear of being Federally prosecuted, and/or fined, and imprisoned for this.   This, of course, is like a black Damascus Steel Blade,stabbing deeply into the  heart of  the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.   

The Supreme Court, sir, will not allow this to stand, if they have not been bought or blackmailed into acquiescence.

Please remember that in your genocidal "push" toward  establishing  "Eretz Israel," you are destroying any hope of reasonable relations with those countries surrounding Israel, which previously might have been considering "normalizing " relationships with it, 

Would that not be a tragic outcome for the country you allege  you "love"?!?

And Mr. Prime Minister, a final thought from a very wise person, for which the original attribution has been lost: "You have not converted someone because you have silenced them" .

Developments on university campuses and in Congress this week showed that the U.S. government’s top priority is not protecting students or civilian lives in Gaza, but to protect Israel’s ability to continue its unimpeded slaughter.

Anti-genocide student protestors at Columbia University, demanding Columbia divest from Israel, occupied the campus’s Hamilton Hall on Tuesday and renamed it Hind’s Hall after Hind Rajab, a 6-year-old Palestinian girl killed by Israeli soldiers in Gaza earlier this year. The Columbia protest has inspired more than 40 other anti-genocide university encampments across the country and in other nations.

On the morning the students occupied Hamilton Hall, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski compared the student protests to Jan. 6, calling for authorities to “just start arresting people.” Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti Defamation League, echoed the comparison in the same MSNBC segment. Other supporters of Israel also made the same Jan. 6 anaolgy on social media early Tuesday morning.

Former CNN anchor Don Lemon wrote on X that the Columbia protest “feels January 6th ish to me” because the protesters had occupied a building. Not a federal government building, but a university hall. Has Lemon not heard of a sit-in?

The goal of the exercise is to iron out “the practical aspects of the preparation and deployment of non-strategic nuclear weapons,” it added.

A group of foreign bondholders have taken steps to force Ukraine to begin repaying its debts as soon as next year, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. If they succeed, Kiev could hemorrhage $500 million every year on interest payments alone.

The group, which includes investment giants Blackrock and Pimco, granted Kiev a two-year debt holiday in 2022, gambling that the conflict with Russia would have concluded by now. 

With no end to the fighting in sight, the lenders have now hired lawyers at Weil Gotshal & Manges and bankers from PJT Partners to meet with Ukrainian officials and strike a deal whereby Ukraine would resume making interest payments next year in exchange for having a significant chunk of its debt written off, anonymous sources told the Wall Street Journal.

As Orthodox Christians celebrated Easter on Sunday, Zelensky released a video address from Kiev’s Saint Sophia Cathedral, in which he accused Russia of “breaking all the commandments.”

“The world sees it, God knows it,” he said. “And we believe God has a chevron with the Ukrainian flag on his shoulder. So, with such an ally, life will definitely win over death.”

The International Centre of Justice for Palestinians (ICJP), which works with Abu Sitta, said French authorities at the Charles De Gaulle airport informed the doctor that Germany "enforced a Schengen-wide ban on his entry into Europe". 

Abu Sitta, who volunteered in Gaza last year and witnessed Israel's deadly bombing campaign, decried the ban as an attempt to silence him.

The shameless cover the United States has extended for Israel has taken on new dimensions of theatrics as pressure grows for Joe Biden to put a stop to the genocidal slaughter that has been going on in Gaza for seven months now.

That theater has often veered into the absurd, as, just to cite one example, when the President has complained about Israel not allowing humanitarian aid in to Gaza—an unambiguous war crime under international law—only to have  administration spokespeople assert that they have “no evidence” that Israel has broken international law. 

Biden has shifted his public image, going from unbridled support for every Israeli atrocity to a transparently phony appearance of trying to “restrain” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In fact, Biden has not let up one iota in his absolute support for everything Israel has done up to this point.
