Commercial vessels sailing through the Red Sea have been broadcasting that they're not connected with Israel and or the US, aiming to avoid Iran-backed Houthi attacks. The creativity behind the broadcasts to thwart attacks has been stepped up a notch, according to research firm TankerTracker

On Sunday afternoon, TankerTracker spotted livestock carrier Cattle Force that broadcasted the message: "All Crew Muslims" as it approached the Bab el-Mandeb Strait off Yemen's coast. 

"This is a first," TankerTracker wrote on social media platform X.

US Vice President Kamala Harris is ready to replace President Joe Biden if necessary, she told the Wall Street Journal, amid growing concerns about his advanced age and apparent memory problems.

The remarks by Harris were first reported by the WSJ on Monday, a week after the VP had made them to the daily during a flight on Air Force Two. Harris was asked whether concerns over Biden’s memory meant she must convince the public she was ready to serve.

“I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that,” Harris stated boldly, brushing off the suggestion she actually needs to convince voters of anything. Anyone who sees her doing her job, “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead,” she claimed.

Despite showing confidence about her leadership skills, Harris might still need to convince some voters, given her plummeting approval ratings.

Webmaster addition: If Biden is removed from office through impeachment or the 25th Amendment, Harris becomes President for the rest of Biden's term, a bit less than a year. This gives her the bully pulpit going into November against which the unpopular Gavin Newsom or the unqualified Michelle Obama may not be able to overcome. Since Harris would become President after the midpoint of Biden's term, Harris would legally allowed to run for a second term in 2028.

US entrepreneur Elon Musk believes Facebook (prohibited in Russia due to its ownership by Meta, which has been designed as extremist) is supporting censorship if it restricts the video of Russian President Vladimir Putin's interview with US journalist Tucker Carlson from being shown on its platform.

"This is an insane level of censorship!" he said in reaction to a recording by Malaysian journalist Ian Miles Cheong, according to which the White House allegedly demanded that Meta "significantly restrict the distribution of the interview" on the Facebook platform.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s interview with US journalist Tucker Carlson may be dangerous for Ukraine due to its potential impact on public opinion in the United States and US politicians, Sergey Leshchenko, adviser to the head of the Ukrainian presidential office, said.

"First of all, this interview should not be underestimated," he told Ukraine’s national television. "It will influence American voters into thinking that this war must be stopped by means of ending assistance to Ukraine. And the new administration will do this, saving the money of US taxpayers and saving the lives of Ukrainians. <…> So, if such moods are fomented in American voters, American politicians will have to heed to them. That is why this interview can be seen as very dangerous in the hands of skillful propagandists."

Apart from that, in his words, this interview can be seen as a kind of "audition" for Carlson, who may seek the office of the US vice president if Donald Trump wins the presidential election. "He is named as the most probable candidate [for vice president]. So, if he is helping Trump influence public opinion in America, he has passed the first part of the audition," Leshchenko said.

The women of a village took to the streets to block any potential Ukrainian military officials from entering their town and taking more men off to war. The protest broke out as the Ukrainian government searches for solutions to its dire troop shortage. 

Tuesday’s rally took place in a region of Ukraine that has generally been supportive regarding the war effort. After rumors emerged that recruitment officials were coming to the village of Kosmach, several women set up a roadblock. About 100 women attended the protest.

The rally occurred as Kiev is struggling to find enough men to hold off the advancing Russian forces. President Zelensky has resisted a plan that would lower the draft age to add 500,000 troops to the Ukrainian military.

At least 67 people were killed in air raids on the overcrowded city of Rafah, according to a statement from the Hamas-run territory’s Ministry of Health.

The predawn strikes on Monday hit 14 houses and three mosques in different parts of the city in the south of the enclave, the Hamas government reported.

The Israeli military said it “conducted a series of strikes on terror targets in the area of Shaboura in the southern Gaza Strip”.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told US broadcaster ABC News that the Rafah operation would continue until Hamas was eliminated, adding he would provide “safe passage” to civilians wishing to leave.

Russia has imposed sanctions on 18 British citizens including officials, academics and Russia experts for what Moscow says is an attempt to demonise Russia and fan the war in Ukraine.

“We are forced to state that Russophobically charged British representatives do not shy away trying to discredit the constitutional system and socio-political processes in our country,” Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Monday.

... that Trump's statements about quitting NATO, while creating a horrendous butt-hurt all around globalists stooges such as General (ret.) Clark who, I hope, attends some anger-management courses, are empty. And they shouldn't worry--this is Trump's shtick which he sells to MAGA crowd but which he will never implement due to him, in case of getting once more to the Oval Office, having no tool kit to change anything in the US. But that's what Trump does, being a true master of his word--he gives the word and then easily takes it back. Remember his "drain the swamp" thingy? There you go. The issue is much deeper than one or another political personality, because for the US to survive one needs totally different prescriptions. 

So, if that hasn't been enough, today's WSJ headline should scare the shit out of all of us:

Kamala Harris Says She Is Ready to Serve as Biden Faces Age Scrutiny. In a recent interview, the vice president cites her ‘capacity to lead’ after stops on her abortion-rights tour.

I am sure Joe will be really glad to hear these revelations from his VP and God helps us all if she becomes POTUS, which, as surreal as it seems, may come true considering conclusions by special counsel Robert Hur about POTUS.

The Egyptian government informed its Israeli counterpart that if the IDF carry out an operation in Rafah as announced, entailing the disruption of humanitarian aid delivery into the Gaza Strip, it would suspend the Camp David Accords.

Signed in 1978 and 1979 by former Muslim Brotherhood member Anwar el-Sadat and revisionist Zionist Menahem Beguin, the Camp David Accords, which comprise two separate agreements, were never fully implemented. However, the second agreement ended the war between the two states. Their suspension could mean a new war.

The "Israel Victory Conference - settlements bring security: Returning to the Gaza Strip and Northern Samaria » was no mere meeting of Jewish supremacists. A rabbi, sentenced in to life imprisonment for his crimes, spoke on behalf of the successors of the Stern group that assassinated British leaders in Mandate Palestine. It was a declaration of war against the Anglo-Saxons. By participating in this event, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was threatening Washington and London.

On Thursday, independent media personality and former Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Despite condemnation from the mainstream media, the interview quickly gained hundreds of millions of views across multiple platforms.

The success of the Tucker-Putin interview was the result of Americans being “hungry for information about what Russia is thinking,” former US Marines Corps intelligence officer and author Scott Ritter told Sputnik’s The Critical Hour on Monday.

“They are worried about the consequences of condemning Russia out of hand and rushing to a war based upon words Russia is not allowed to say for us to consider,” he added.
