Israeli occupation is not limited to Palestine. The response from western elites to Israel’s ongoing massacre in Gaza shows how Tel Aviv is also occupying the mindsets of American and European leaders. 

Beyond setting up colonies on Palestinian lands, Israel has gone further, establishing political settlements in western capitals. 

These moves have met an unprecedented lack of opposition, with politicians from across the spectrum uniting in support of Israel after the 7 October Hamas attack. There is a stark contrast between their impassioned speeches on Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and their detached, fanatical rhetoric on Israel. 

Within international institutions, we have seen the West veto resolutions on basic humanitarian aid, severely damaging any claims to moral authority.

Russian and Chinese business executives with government connections have secretly discussed building an underwater tunnel connecting Crimea to Russia, according to communications obtained by the Ukrainian security services and corroborated and reported by the Washington Post. 

The Russian-built bridge over the Kerch Strait is vulnerable to Ukrainian attacks, having been hit twice since Feb. 2022.

As a result, Russia is looking for safer alternative transportation routes. 

The Washington Post reported that an October email from the state-owned Chinese Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) said they were “ready to ensure the construction of railway and road construction projects of any complexity in the Crimean region.”

Do you remember when the testosterone-driven “Top Gun” was the ultimate recruitment tool for the US Navy? It’s easy to see why—the movie was packed with adrenaline, rugged men, beautiful women, and plenty of what’s now termed “toxic masculinity.” Contrast that with today’s military, which has totally shifted focus. Instead of seeking out traditionally masculine men, their recruitment now heavily includes the LGBTQ community and men who wear pantyhose. This change might be why their recruitment numbers are in the toilet.

The United States military’s newest recruitment tactic is taking a really bizarre turn. Gone are the days of scouting for robust young men at gyms or high school football practices. Now, they’re adopting a different strategy: dressing up as anime characters and visiting “conventions” across the nation.

The mother of Derek Chauvin says that the prison did not contact her or any other family members in the 24 hours after her son was stabbed and seriously injured.

Chauvin was stabbed at the medium security Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Tucson, Arizona, on Friday.

The Minnesota Attorney General’s Office announced on Saturday that former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is expected to survive, telling NBC News, “I can confirm that, as of last night, Chauvin was expected to survive.” No additional details about his condition were provided.

His mother, Carolyn Pawlenty, says she had to find out about the stabbing and her son’s condition through the media because prison officials never contacted her.

Webmaster addition: Lot of secrecy about this case!

Illegal aliens overwhelm New York City and black people are mad they lose access to free food.

Welcome to America in 2023. [NYCHA residents and migrants face grave food insecurity in Queens, Fox5NY.com, November 18, 2023]

QUEENS – Tammy Waters, a resident of the Queensbridge public housing development, enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal inside the nearby Jacob Riis Neighborhood Settlement on Saturday.

“Be thankful, because I’m very thankful,” Waters said.

The free meal is a gift that has become a precious commodity in the Long Island City community, where 6,000 NYCHA residents and 8,000 migrants are competing for free hot meals.

Farmers in the occupied West Bank face near-daily incursions and violence from Israeli settlers, to the point that they live in fear of having their homes and land stolen, they say.

Added to that is the violence they witness in nearby urban areas, like Jenin city and refugee camp that the Israeli army stepped up raids on, killing 10 people and wounding 20 in just one week.

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) does not meet its own standards, and safety signals are not being addressed

Before the COVID pandemic, VAERS received an average of 60,000 adverse event reports after vaccination each year. In the first year of the rollout of the experimental gene therapies against COVID (2021), reports skyrocketed to 1 million. By the end of October 2023, the number of reports associated with the COVID shots was 1,605,764, and nearly 1 in 5 of those reports involves a “serious” adverse event

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which share responsibility for VAERS, insist these data in no way reflect a potential problem with the COVID shots

Filing a VAERS report is a time-consuming process. It can take several hours for a trained medical professional to fill out a single report, and this is time that cannot be billed to anyone. As a result, side effects, including deaths, are massively underreported

VAERS has a public front end and a private back end that public users aren’t allowed to see. The public database only contains the initial reports. Corrections and updates on outcomes go into the private-facing end. As a result, we have no idea how many of the injuries have resulted in death after an initial report was filed. The death count we see when we look at VAERS is the number of reports filed where death was the reason for filing the report in the first place. This “dual system” can leave the public with the false impression that deaths are less common than they are. We also don’t know how many injuries end up progressing and resulting in permanent disability, or how many of them resolve

In new SEC filings, Disney is now admitting it has been slapped by its own customers for its far left social and political agenda, legal expert Jonathan Turley wrote in his recent column for The Hill on Saturday.

"In a new corporate disclosure, Disney acknowledges that its controversial political and social agenda is costing the company and shareholders," Turley wrote.

Turley pointed to Disney's SEC filing this week that acknowledged some mistakes leading to losses potential stretching into billions with pair of statements listed in bold:

"We face risks relating to misalignment with public and consumer tastes and preferences for entertainment, travel and consumer products, which impact demand for our entertainment offerings and products and the profitability of any of our businesses."

"We face risks related to changes in our business strategy or restructuring of our businesses, which have affected and may continue to affect our cost structure, the profitability of our businesses or the value of our assets."

An Oregon judge has put on hold a gun control law Oregon voters barely approved in a 2022 referendum.

The law, known as Measure 114, passed with 50.65 percent of the vote and only won majorities in six of Oregon’s 36 counties. The law mandates a permit to buy any kind of gun, bans any magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and was labeled “the nation’s most extreme gun control Initiative” by the National Rifle Association, according to Fox News.

“This Thanksgiving, we can be thankful for Article I, section 27 and its continued protection of our right to bear arms,” attorney Tony Aiello Jr., who represented two gun owners, said.

A central point in dispute was whether the concept of semi-automatic and automatic weapons was such a break with the past that Oregon’s state constitution did not apply.

California Governor Gavin Newsom wants the public to believe that inflation isn’t that bad, and that the only reason people believe that it is, is because of conservatives. Millions of Americans are struggling to afford basic items like food and gas but the narrative is more important to Newsom. He should know by now that you can’t lie to people about how much money they have or how much things cost.

Cisco Talos has recently observed an increase in spam messages abusing a feature of quizzes created within Google Forms. In particular, spammers have discovered that they can create a new quiz in Google Forms, use the victim’s email address to respond to the quiz, and then abuse the “Release Scores” feature of the Google Form to deliver their spam to the victim. Because the spam messages emanate from Google itself, the messages have a good chance of landing in the victim’s inbox.
