“There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see” -- Leonardo Da Vinci

Over the past four years, many of us have had the unpleasant surprise of learning that our go-to restaurant, coffee shop, or fast food joint was closing doors for good. Thousands of well-established companies have gone out of business since the pandemic accelerated the descent of the U.S. economy, and conditions have been particularly tough in the restaurant industry. Even during the best of times, managing a restaurant comes with plenty of uncertainty. Though a brand can be incredibly popular amongst consumers, there’s a variety of factors that can result in mass closings, and in some cases, bankruptcy.

A Milwaukee football coach has become the latest victim of the devastating drug shortage crisis threatening the lives of patients with diabetes, cancer and deadly infections.

Jeff Bolle, 60, a high school counselor and football coach, succumbed to bile duct cancer last December after doctors ran out of his vital chemotherapy drug, cisplatin.

Bolle had surgery and four rounds of chemotherapy to remove a grapefruit-sized tumor in his bile duct next to his liver. 

Doctors said he needed two more to kill all remaining cancer cells - but Mr Bolle was told the cancer center where he was treated did not have the drug.

Instead, he languished for months without cancer-slowing medication.

The White House Correspondents dinner was on April 27 and is perhaps an even more insufferable annual event than the Met Gala and it produces a significantly less fun red carpet. Notably: President Trump is the only president to not attend a single one of these affairs. He called them “boring and negative.” Vice President Kamala Harris’s husband seems to agree.

The dinner has been a tradition in Washington since 1921 and was intended to inspire some good will between the White House Correspondents Association and the President/White House who they are covering. The attendee list more and more is becoming movie stars and celebrities and less and less actual journalists. 

So let’s see just who exactly the White House is calling a “correspondent” these days:

“The HPV vaccine was introduced in 2006, and by 2018 there had been a 50% drop in teen pregnancy…a 50% drop over 10 years suggested to us that something was very wrong.”

The HPV vaccine is also associated with Guillain Barré syndrome (paralysis)

Trial data showed a 27% miscarriage rate

HPV is now being given to boys as well as girls, which presents more risk to fertility.

Vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca has finally admitted in Court that its COVID-19 vaccine could result in life-threatening blood clots.

The Daily Mail reported that,

Cambridge-based AstraZeneca… acknowledged in a legal document submitted to the High Court in February that its vaccine ‘can, in very rare cases, cause TTS’.

TTS is short for thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome – a medical condition where a person suffers blood clots along with a low platelet count. Platelets typically help the blood to clot. 

The admission by AstraZeneca is the first of its kind.

The question now is – if you got the vaccine, what can you do about it?

Politicians are always looking for ways to leave a legacy long after they leave office. Most want something profoundly positive to enshrine their efforts during their time of service.

One blue state governor, who arguably doesn’t have a positive track record, made the mistake of asking the public for input into one of his pet projects. The reactions were hilarious, but in a matter-of-fact, “you completely failed” sort of way.

California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom has for years ignored his failures while trying to spin all the negative into a positive. Now he wants people to help him conjure up positive images and sayings to put on a vanity coin showcasing his legacy. He got just what he was asking for in the many responses.

UN investigators have said Israel is not only not co-operating with them, but are actively obstructing them. Why if it is all Hamas' fault? Right, so was this ever going to be a surprise? We knew there would have to be an investigation into exactly what happened on October 7th, especially with so much in the way of evidence pointing to Israel’s own involvement on that night, initiating Hannibal Directive’s to kill their own people rather than let them take hostages, the use of tanks and helicopter gunships which targeted people in the kibbutzes and fleeing the Nova Music Festival.

Well now the UN wish to conduct that investigation and Israel are saying no. Something to hide by any chance?

Right, so the UN have been attempting to conduct an investigation into the events of October 7th and you might have been thinking about this already, 6 months have passed after all and you might have wondered when this investigation would begin, whether the ongoing genocide in Gaza was complicating matters, or just wondering what on Earth is the hold up, what is stopping you, the longer this takes to get going the more time and the more likely Israel are to be covering up any role they may have played in this. But as it turns out an investigation has been attempted and to possibly nobody but the most ardent of Zionists surprise, Israel have apparently been blocking them from carrying this investigation out. Literally the very reason they’ve committed genocide for 6 months, and they don’t want the UN to see the evidence for themselves, well why could that be? Here’s an excerpt from the Reuters piece on this, who appear to have broken the news, it’s not being well covered, which given the ramifications, is especially shocking: ‘A U.N.-mandated commission of inquiry that probes violations of international human rights law on Tuesday accused Israel of obstructing its efforts to collect evidence from the victims of the attack by Hamas in southern Israel on Oct. 7.

In a recent interview with Greg Hunter, Catherine Austin Fitts, a former Bush official and founder of Solari.com, dropped a series of bone-chilling statements about the Ukraine war.

She said, “I don’t know where that money’s disappearing to, Greg, but it’s not there to fight a legitimate war.

“Ukraine is lost,” she added. “The Russians have won.” Military insiders suggest, “It’s too late. The lines have imploded” and “money can’t help.”

So, why does the US government continue to funnel billions of tax dollars to Ukraine? According to Fitts, It’s quite disturbing.

(ANP: With deadly violence exploding all across the country in 'Joe Biden's America' as crime reaches proportions unseen in decades and Biden's so-called 'Department of Justice' absolutely FAILS law-abiding Americans while putting criminals and illegal alien invaders ahead of those 100's of millions of Americans who OBEY the laws of this land, James O'Keefe recently gave the American people another GREAT REASON to continue arming up heavily with Joe Biden's government BEHAVING LIKE TERRORISTS AND A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION, secretly interviewing a DOD employee who claimed the government should take all the guns away from Americans, using force, so that 'government' would be the only ones with guns. With Biden's govt already openly behaving like a criminal cabal or a mass murdering terrorist organization, could you imagine THAT?)

James O’Keefe recently released an undercover video in which Jason Beck, a Department of Defense employee, asserts that firearms owners should have their guns confiscated. By force. By the National Guard.

Constitution? What Constitution? Individual rights? Pshaw!

It seems like a lot of people just can’t hardly wait for war. From mainstream news media to even the best of alternative news sources, commentators and pundits, everyone seems to be salivating at the idea of World War Three. 

I find it interesting to note that during World War 1, we didn’t call it “World War 1,” because we didn’t recognize it as the first of many. It was first called the “European War.” Then American newspapers called it “World War.” And the British called it the “Great War.” Soldiers fighting and families left at home had no idea they were fighting “World War 1.” Then, it was FDR who first used the term “World War 2” in 1941. But soldiers fighting and those at home didn’t realize they were fighting “World War 2” until Roosevelt named it that. But today, people seem so eager for World War 3. Even regular, everyday citizens seemed giddy at the idea of World War 3. It’s on everyone’s minds and it seems virtually inevitable. 

As we look at current world events, it does appear that a war to engulf the globe has already been set in motion. Like wars we’ve seen in the past, alliances are being formed. The BRICS nations, consisting of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Ethiopia, Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been in allegiance since 2009. Also at that table, you could add North Korea, Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Afghanistan.

The mention of mass graves is so deeply disturbing that it’s preferable to think of such wartime horrors as dark remnants of another era, chapters of history we'll never repeat. The Armenian genocide, the Bolshevik revolution, Nazi Germany, El Salvador, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The fairy tale that the human race has evolved beyond such barbarism was shattered (again) last week when reports surfaced that three mass burial sites had been unearthed in Gaza. The shocking development should have made headlines, but it barely made it onto most people's radars.

The media are instead hyper-focused on how we protest atrocities rather than the atrocities themselves.
