The Biden administration had been intending to take out the Nord Stream pipeline since December 2021. This was two months before Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, while Putin was amassing troops on the border.
It was "the first of a series of top-secret meetings," reports Seymour Hersh, and it was here that the crucial question was asked by the president's advisors, which was if they should recommend further economic sanctions to Biden, or something irreversible.
It was Jake Sullivan, Hersch reports, according to a source, who intended to concoct a plan to destroy two of the Nord Stream pipelines, known collectively as Nord Stream 1, that were delivering natural gas from Russia to Europe, and to recommend that course of action to the president.
Many plans and schemes as to how to go about this were entertained, but as they developed, the winning plan involved the use of deep-sea Navy divers, divers who were not part of any special forces units, as the use of those units had to be cleared by Congress and plans briefed to the Gang of Eight. This was not something Sullivan wanted to do.
The Naval deep-sea teams trained in Panama City, Florida, and by June 2022, Hersch reports, those divers, "operating under the cover of a widely publicized mid-summer NATO exercise known as BALTOPS 22, planted the remotely triggered explosives that, three months later, destroyed three of the four Nord Stream pipelines, according to a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning."
The operation was staged in Norway, and the US team worked with the Norwegian Secret Service and their Navy. The Norwegians located the "right spot" for the explosives, and they also came up with the right time that would result in the least suspicion, which was during the BALTOPS 22. The explosives were planted, but it was determined by the White House that they should be detonated at a later date.
Florida is debating whether to join states like Vermont, Arizona, Maine, New Hampshire, Indiana, Texas, and Utah, and become the 26th state to allow its citizens to carry firearms without a government permit. Since criminals and mass shooters tend to ignore paperwork, the law is a reasonable way to ensure lawful Floridians are able to defend themselves and their communities.
The outrage over the permitless carry bill is, as one expects, already hysterical, emotional, and largely fact-free. Read this column from the perpetually confused Wajahat Ali, who stresses the dangers of permitless carry by pointing to incidents that are wholly unrelated to the prospective law. Or take the Newtown Action Alliance, which argues that “constitutional carry” — the term Second Amendment advocates often use to describe permitless carry — isn’t a real thing because the “constitution didn’t give anyone the right to carry guns publicly without permits, background checks, or training.”
First off, “constitutional carry” doesn’t affect “background checks” in any way. All Floridians who purchase a gun, whether they plan to carry the firearm or not, fill out the same NICS forms and are subjected to the same criminal checks. Newtown knows this, but as with the “universal background check” canard, the claim is meant to create the perception that mass murderers would be allowed to stroll into Wal-Marts and pick up their machine guns without any FBI check.
The phenomenon of “sudden deaths” being seen all around the world following the release of covid “vaccines” can be traced back to one common cause: the age-accelerating effects of spike proteins.
Spike proteins lodge inside every organ of the body, we now know, and once there they transform a person from young to old or from old to very old. This is why young people everywhere, including in-shape athletes, are dropping dead suddenly of cardiac events.
Walter M. Chesnut of WMC Research calls this phenomenon Spike Protein Endothelial Disease, or SPED, which he describes as Stage One of a disease he calls Spike Protein Progeria Syndrome (SPPS).
SPPS, Chesnut explains, is an endothelial reaction to the invasion of spike proteins into all major organs of the body. (Related: Check out this amazing component found in broccoli that could help the brain repair spike protein damage.)
“Consider this much like the shock of being submerged in freezing water, or being blasted with fire,” he writes. “There is INSTANTANEOUS damage: inflammation, coagulation and all that accompanies an insult to the Endothelium.”
“However, once the Spike Protein has INVADED the Endothelium of all the major organs, it then PROCEEDS TO INDUCE MISTRANSLATION OF mRNA IN EACH ORGAN.”

Arkansas governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s state of the union address.
.@SarahHuckabee just knocked it out of the park. The contrast between her speech and Biden's couldn't be more clear.— Kevin McCarthy (@SpeakerMcCarthy) February 8, 2023

Huckabee Sanders (R-Ark.) had a lot to say in response to Biden’s speech on Tuesday, which largely hit on his campaign talking points, glossed over America’s struggling economy and soaring inflation rates, blaming the issues on the pandemic.
This despite the Biden administration refusing to lift the COVID state of emergency until may.
Huckabee Sanders ripped on woke America and the left’s attack on America’s founding principles. She called for a “new generation of Republican leadership” and said that the American people have a choice “between normal or crazy.”
The Daily Wire reports that the scene is from a recent episode that “reviews the history of Juneteenth when the kids discover their town’s founder was a slave-owner.” And of course, the logical conclusion is a sweeping indictment of America itself — “a systemic prejudice, racism and white supremacy that America was founded with and still has not atoned for” — that includes “plantation owners, northern bankers, New England ship-owners, the Founding Fathers, and current senators among those who had profited on the backs of slaves,” the Daily Wire notes. Pictures of Black Lives Matter protests, repeated demands for reparations, and the debunked Michael Brown “hands up, don’t shoot” mantra make guest appearances in the rant. Bizarrely, references to the Illuminati, the New World Order, and the idea that Abraham Lincoln didn’t really “free the slaves” — because “only we can free ourselves” and “emancipation is not freedom” — slip in, too.
Webmaster addition: Well, if you could free yourselves, why didn't you do that? Why did you wait until 620,000 Union soldiers were killed? Crap like this is why I won't sign up for the Disney streaming channel.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has made himself the voice of science and the face of COVID. He wore it as a badge of honor for several years — working closely with President Joe Biden, the FDA and the CDC to institute policies impacting several thousand to more than a million Americans.
Today, however, most vilified him, begrudgingly admitting that his policies, mandates and vaccines were ineffective in bringing the pandemic under control.
The latest admission was made in a recent publication that some believe is an attempt to get in front of the information curve before he is subpoenaed to appear before the new Congress, which he is likely to find markedly unfriendlier than when Nancy Pelosi served as speaker.
Former President Donald Trump let rip on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on his Truth Social platform Tuesday, sharing memes accusing DeSantis of “grooming high school girls.”
“That’s not Ron, is it? He would never do such a thing!” wrote Trump above an apparent of image of a young DeSantis surrounded by blurred-out female faces. The image was captioned, “Here is Ron DeSanctimonious grooming high school girls with alcohol as a teacher.” The meme was followed by the “puking” emoji.
Trump followed that post up with another from the same account that read, “Ron DeSantis was having a “drink” party with his students when he was a high school teacher. Having drinks with underage girls and cuddling with them certainly look pretty gross and ephebophiliaesque.”
Webmaster addition: Given that the women's faces are pixelated, it's impossible to tell their age. We only have the poster's word that these are high schoolers. Frankly I think this is a set-up and Trump fell for it.
A mysterious Russian satellite broke apart early last month, creating a cloud of debris that could linger in Earth orbit for a while.
The Kosmos 2499 spacecraft disintegrated on the night of Jan. 3, according to the U.S. Space Force's 18th Space Defense Squadron (18th SDS), which tracks human-made objects in orbit.
The breakup event generated at least 85 pieces of trackable debris, 18th SDS said via Twitter on Monday(opens in new tab) (Feb. 6). That cloud of space junk is orbiting 726 miles (1,169 kilometers) above Earth — so high that it'll likely take a century or more(opens in new tab) for atmosphere drag to bring it down.
Webmaster addition: Did someone just test an anti-satellite weapon?
Alec Baldwin has demanded the special prosecutor assigned to his involuntary manslaughter case be disqualified due to her status as a Republican lawmaker.
Baldwin accidentally shot and killed 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after being handed a gun with live ammunition on the set of his film Rust in October 2021.
Andrea Reeb kicked off the prosecution sensationally last month, and flatly declared that if not for the actions of Baldwin and others on set 'Hutchins would be alive today.'
But the Hollywood star, who faces up to five years in jail if convicted, has now said the appointment of Reeb as special prosecutor is 'unconstitutional' because she also serves in the New Mexico House of Representatives.
A motion to the court filed on behalf of Baldwin - a Democrat and vocal Donald Trump critic - says she 'must' be taken off the case, alleging her appointment is a violation of New Mexico's constitution which prohibits the mixing of two branches of government.
The ratings are in for the 2023 Grammy Awards show — which featured a “Demonic” performance by artist Sam Smith — and the show continues to struggle to bring in the audience it had pre-pandemic.
According to final same-day Nielsen ratings, the 65th Grammys had 12.55 million viewers — a 31% increase from last year’s numbers — but they are still down compared to the numbers from 2020, The Hollywood Reporter reported.
The show saw a record-low viewership of 9.59 million in 2022, but it had 18.69 million viewers back in 2020.
In the coveted 18-49 age demographic, the Grammys landed a 2.88 rating, which is up by 29% from last year’s showing.
