A US special forces unit has stepped up its operations inside the Arctic Circle in Norway while admitting it is trying to get Russia's attention by testing an experimental new weapons delivery system there.
"It puts this thing within range of Russia," Special Operations Command Europe’s Lt. Col. Lawrence Melnicoff was quoted as saying of the new parachute dropped long-range missile which was tested. "We are intentionally trying to be provocative without being escalatory."
Flight tests of the Sarmat missile system were successful. This was announced on Friday, November 18, by the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) Sergey Karakaev.
"The active rearmament of Strategic Missile Forces with modern missile systems continues. Flight tests of the Sarmat missile system have been successfully conducted. Also, the launches carried out at the Plesetsk state test cosmodrome confirmed its capabilities of the Yars PGRK," he was quoted as saying in a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry.
Before that, on April 20, Russia successfully conducted the first test launch of the Sarmat in a series of state testing programs, after which the complex will enter service with the Strategic Missile Forces.
The launch took place from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region.
NATO member states are hollowing out their armed forces in their rush to arm Ukraine for a proxy fight with Russia, defence and foreign affairs experts have said after a stray missile incident undermined trust in the Kiev regime.
The Kiev regime tested the patience of its Western backers on Tuesday night when President Volodymyr Zelensky demanded NATO intervene militarily against Russian forces — after two people were killed by a stray missile falling in neighbouring Poland.
After several hours of anonymous briefings from Washington and Polish media reports that two Russian missiles had hit the NATO member, it was confirmed that it was fired from a Ukrainian surface-to-air missile (SAM) battery — although Kiev continues to deny this.
That has prompted calls from many quarters — including some in the US Republican Party — to cut off the tens of billions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine which has strained the ability of western militaries and arms industries to sustain.
The US military has reportedly run so low on ammunition for howitzers it supplied to Ukraine that it is looking to buy 100,000 shells from South Korea. But it is not the only country to overextend itself.
The manufacturer's of COVID-19 "Vaccines" now admit on TV that a "tiny segment of HIV" was used in the making of COVID-19 "vaccines." As most people know, HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Below is video proof with the direct admission, from BBC television.
As more and more people around the world got snookered into taking the COVID "Vaccine" we all got to see how more and more people started dying from strange ailments. Young people started dying from Myocarditis and Pericarditis. Middle aged people starting dropping dead from blood clots in the brain, in the lungs, or in their hearts. Other people started dropping dead from "unknown causes" to such a large extent, they made-up a phony name to describe it: Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
Now, we finally have an idea as to why: Manufacturers of the COVID-19 "vaccine" used segments of the HIV virus in the COVID "vaccine." For a lot of the people who got the COVID vax, it now appears to many that they actually gave you a tiny version of . . . AIDS
After accepting a top award, a retired Canadian general received a standing ovation from senior military officers for giving a rousing speech blasting cancel culture, climate change policies, woke aspects of the armed forces, and leaders who “divide.”
The speech was made by retired Lt.-Gen. Michel Maisonneuve on November 9 in Ottawa at a gala event, at which he accepted the prestigious Vimy Award.
During his speech, Maisonneuve, who is a 35-year Canadian Armed Forces veteran, was direct in his take on the current leadership of Canada under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, without directly naming people.
“Can you imagine a military leader labeling half of his command as deplorables, fringe radicals and less-thans and then expect them to fight as one?” Maisonneuve asked rhetorically.
“Today’s leaders must find a way to unite; not divide.”
An alleged S-300 missile of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the incident site in Poland
Poland, the UK, Baltic States and Ukraine are in confusion after hysterical calls for WW3 over the missile incident on the Ukrainian-Polish border were in fact ignored by their Washington masters.
On November 15, the Russian Armed Forces carried out another massive strike on Ukrainian military and energy infrastructure. Following the strike, Polish media claimed that 2 Russian missiles allegedly fell on the Polish territory killing 2 people. To confirm the claims, media published a piece of what seems to be an S-300 surface-to-air missile operated of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Most likely, the fallen S-300 missile in Poland belongs to the 540th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment of the Ukrainian Air Force. The regiment is located in Kamenka-Bugskaya, Lviv Region, and is armed with S-300PS/PT systems.
Ukrainian air defense systems already became famous for their successful interceptions of Ukrainian buildings and civilian objects in numerous failed attempts to target Russian missiles flying all around their zone of responsibility.
2021 elections in the German capital of Berlin have been ruled invalid by the city’s constitutional court on Wednesday, with Berlin now legally required to re-run the whole vote within 90 days.
Elections for the Berlin Senate must be completely re-run within the next 90 days, the city’s constitutional court has decided, ruling that a previous ballot held last year was completely invalid due to a whole host of election discrepancies.
Questions also remain over the city’s handling of the German general elections which were held at the same time, with it now looking likely that at least some constituencies within the city will have to repeat the polling process again due to irregularities the first time round.
According to a report by Die Welt, the city’s constitutional court officially ruled on Wednesday that issues surrounding missing ballot papers, insufficient ballot boxes, and polling stations being temporarily closed among a long list of other problems have rendered the city’s election invalid.
Ukrainian Neo Nazi networks are infiltrating European far right organisations and promote terrorism threatening the lives of the Europeans. Italian special forces have recently arrested four suspected members of the extremist organization “Order of Hagal” which has close ties with the Ukrainian paramilitary groups.
The Order of Hagal is an organization based in the area surrounding Naples which has subunits across the country. Besides Nazism and anti-semitism, it promotes subversion and white supremacy culture.
During the investigation, the police collected numerous Nazi and Fascist propaganda materials, bullets, weapons, tactical clothing and other elements. Photos released by police show the Nazi paraphernalia seized in around 30 raids on members of the “Order of Hagal” throughout the country included photos of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, and t-shirts bearing the logo of Ukraine’s official Nazi regiment, the Azov Battalion.
The four suspected were arrested during the operations in Naples, Caserta and Avellino. They were planning the attacks in public places and in a police station in Italy. According to the investigators, one of the targets for the attacks of the members of the Order of Hagal was the Marigliano police barracks. Another plan of extremists targeted a shopping center near Naples.
Wars tend to bury facts. What comes out of them is often a furiously untidy mix of accounts that, when considered later, constitute wisps of fantasy and presumption. Rarely accepted in the heat of battle is the concept of mistake: that a weapon was wrongly discharged or errantly hit an unintended target; a deployment that went awry; or that the general was drunk when an order was given. Wars invite ludicrous tall tales and lies with sprinting legs.
In the Ukraine War, where accurate information has almost ceased to be relevant (unless you believe the sludge from any one side), the latest shock and shudder came in the form of a missile that fell on Polish territory. As a result, two farmers lost their lives in the village of Przewodów.
The farmers, as the pencilled in victims of a broader power play, almost ceased to be relevant. Discussions moved on to a potential violation of Polish territory and the prospect of NATO engagement. The missile had been “Russian-made”, which tickled those keen to push a widening of the conflict. Never mind that Ukraine has its own share of Russian and Soviet-era weapons systems.
The Ukrainian side, ever keen to bring in more military assistance against Moscow, was clear from the outset: it could not have been from their side.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk has taken action that triggered some of his employees. He has temporarily closed Twitter offices and suspended employee access, it was reported.
“Twitter just alerted employees that effective immediately, all office buildings are temporarily closed and badge access is suspended. No details given as to why, Zoe Schiffer said. We’re hearing this is because Elon Musk and his team are terrified employees are going to sabotage the company. Also, they’re still trying to figure out which Twitter workers they need to cut access for. Offices will reopen on November 21st. In the meantime: ‘Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere,” the reporter tweeted.
Wednesday afternoon’s attack on the Pacific Zircon, a tanker in the Gulf of Oman, owned by Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer, comes amidst a time of increased tensions in the region, with both Israel and the United States immediately placing the blame on Iran.
For the past two months, the Islamic Republic has been rocked by riots, ostensibly in response to the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year old Iranian woman who passed away suddenly following an interaction with a female police officer in Tehran. The involvement of regime-change agent Masih Alinejad, and the recent admission by former US National Security Advisor John Bolton that weapons are being supplied to the ‘Iranian opposition’ however, acts as effective confirmation that what had initially begun as legitimate protests, have now been hijacked by Western Intelligence agencies in a bid to implement regime change in Iran, with a similar strategy having previously been carried out in Libya and Syria.
With the eyes of the world focused on the current unrest in Iran, and with the Islamic Republic due to play their inaugural game in the 2022 Qatar World Cup against England on Monday, the question must be asked as to what would be the strategic importance for Tehran to launch a Drone attack on an Israeli-owned tanker at this time, a move with a realistic likelihood of drawing a Western military response?
The night before, the naval drone of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reportedly attacked the Sheskharis oil and gas terminal in the Black Sea.
The attack took place on the night of Friday, November 18, near Russian city of Novorossiysk. According to the local experts, the oil terminal was slightly damaged, the attack did not affect the performance of the systems. The Sheskharis transshipment complex loads oil from the fields in Russia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan for shipment abroad.
The wreckage of the unmanned surface vehicle (USV) revealed that the attack was carried out with the same systems as the attack on the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol at the end of October. Earlier the same USV crashed on the shore near Sevastopol.
There are no official comments on the incident yet.
All school meals are to be meatless from now on in the German city of Freiburg, with authorities mandating vegetarian-only menus from 2023.
Children going to primary school or daycare in Freiburg will no longer be able to have meat for lunch, with authorities in the city ruling that all meat and fish offerings will be stripped from school meals starting in 2023.
The decision follows similar moves in the United Kingdom, while government officials in the Netherlands have meanwhile been encouraging elementary school children to eat bugs as a “sustainable” source of protein.
Although authorities in other countries have pushed similar measures with reference to green agenda goals, according to documents published on the official Freiburg council website, the decision to force children to eat veggie-only meals was an economic one, with authorities arguing that the change streamlines feeding processes for the city.
“In order to simplify the processing of meals, from ordering to serving, only one menu will be offered at primary schools and municipal day-care centres from the 2023/2024 school year,” the document detailing the decision reads.
A new video evidence has appeared online showing the mass execution of captured unarmed Russian soldiers by Kiev’s troops.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that this situation “confirms the atrocious nature of the current Kiev regime led by Zelensky and those who protect and support him.”
“Nobody will succeed in presenting the intentional and methodical murder committed by the degenerates from the Armed Forces of Ukraine through direct head-shots 10 immobilised Russian servicemen as a ‘tragic exception’ amid the allegedly entire compliance with the rights of prisoners of war by the Kiev regime.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian servicemen, who surrendered this week, are held in accordance with all the requirements of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War.
The new CEO of FTX, John Ray, III, revealed several wild and shocking items found in the collapsed company’s bankruptcy filing, which include the founder and former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried lending himself $1 billion, and FTX corporate funds being used to buy personal homes, among other things.
Here are five of the wildest things found in FTX’s bankruptcy filing, according to a report by Market Watch.
While the international press treats the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines as a news item, we analyze it as an act of war against Germany and the European Union. Indeed, the three gas supply routes to Western Europe have been cut off simultaneously, while at the same time a new gas pipeline has been opened to Poland.
Just as Mikhail Gorbachev saw in the Chernobyl disaster the inevitable break-up of the USSR, so we believe that the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines marks the beginning of the economic collapse of the Union.
According to precious metals and financial expert Bix Weir, when the FTX cryptocurrency exchange imploded, it took with it billions of dollars of investments. It now has more than a million creditors both big and small. Weir says it is the tip of the iceberg in a dying over-indebted system. Weir contends it is orders of magnitude worse than the Lehman Brothers meltdown that caused the Great Recession in 2008. Weir explains, “Does it really matter if we control the House or the Senate or the Presidency? The only thing that will matter, the only thing that will change what is going on is when the ATMs shut off and, all of a sudden, people cannot get money out of the bank. That would change things really fast. I think it will happen. All we need is one highly connected derivative bank to go down, and they all go down. They can bail out a trillion-dollar bank, but they cannot bail out a $2 quadrillion failure, and that is what is coming. The moment that hits is when everybody will say, okay, nobody is getting paid off. . . .We are going to find out in about a month how many counterparties in the FTX debacle will be translated into the derivatives, which is probably 100 times bigger than what happened on FTX. Every one of those people on the FTX ledger was placing derivative bets that were hedging their crypto position. Now, their crypto positions have disappeared. The actual cryptos are no longer there . . .that is what was hedging this transaction. There are two sides to a derivative trade. If one side loses, they double lose. So, we could see a massive, massive fallout from the derivative mess.”
A federal judge on Friday sentenced disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes to more than 11 years in prison for duping investors in the failed startup that promised to revolutionize blood testing but instead made her a symbol of Silicon Valley’s culture of audacious self-promotion.
The sentence imposed by U.S. District Judge Edward Davila was shorter than the 15-year penalty requested by federal prosecutors but far tougher than the leniency her legal team sought for the mother of a year-old son with another child on the way.
Holmes, who was CEO throughout the company’s turbulent 15-year history, was convicted in January in the scheme, which revolved around the company’s claims to have developed a medical device that could detect a multitude of diseases and conditions from a few drops of blood. But the technology never worked.
Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX lent out billions of dollars in customer funds to Bankman-Fried’s hedge fund, Alameda Research. Then Alameda gave a $1 billion loan to Bankman-Fried himself and a $543 million loan made to FTX cofounder Nishad Singh.
Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday insisted the Biden White House does not politicize the Justice Department after US Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate whether Trump committed crimes.
