"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their Country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph." -- Thomas Paine December 23, 1776
On Friday, August 19, Kiev is planning to stage a highly publicized false flag at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant during UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ visit to Ukraine, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Thursday.
"On August 19, the Kiev regime will be plotting a highly publicized provocation at the Zaporozhye NPP during UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ visit to Ukraine with Russia being accused of creating a man-made catastrophe at this power plant as a result," he warned.
"In order to prepare for the provocation, the command of the Dnieper task force is setting up radiation monitoring posts in Zaporozhye by August 19 as well as organizing drills among the units of the 108th territorial defense brigade, the 44th artillery brigade and the military units stationed in Zaporozhye for action under conditions of radiological contamination of the area," the spokesman stressed.
He said that the units of the 44th brigade of the Ukrainian armed forces are planning artillery strikes on the NPP’s premises from firing points in the city of Nikopol. "The blame for their consequences will be laid on Russia’s armed forces," the military official affirmed.
Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Wednesday delivered a sweeping rebuke of her agency’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying it had failed to respond quickly enough and needed to be overhauled.
“To be frank, we are responsible for some pretty dramatic, pretty public mistakes, from testing to data to communications,” she said in a video distributed to the agency’s roughly 11,000 employees.
Dr. Walensky said the C.D.C.’s future depended on whether it could absorb the lessons of the last few years, during which much of the public lost trust in the agency’s ability to handle a pandemic that has killed more than 1 million Americans. “This is our watershed moment. We must pivot,” she said.
Her admission of the agency’s failings came after she received the findings of an examination she ordered in April amid scathing criticism of the C.D.C.’s performance. The report itself was not released; an agency official said it was not yet finished but would be made public soon.
The brazen raid of President Trump’s home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, likely has its roots in the Russia collusion story with a particular focus on Peter Strzok and his affiliation with the CIA.

Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec dug into the details of a new story that reveals the Biden regime has been flying tens of thousands of unaccompanied migrant children to “sponsors.”
“This is just an incredible story, obviously, we know War Room Steve Bannon had this story this morning… Make sure you go to The Post Millennial, check this out, and understand what’s going on. A federal whistleblower has come forward to Savannah Hernandez, who was with me in Davos,” said Posobiec, recounting how Hernandez was with him when he was detained by World Economic Forum-aligned police earlier this year in Switzerland.

Some drinks made by Lyons Magnus, a food and beverage manufacturer, were recalled within the last couple of weeks. A variety of plant milks, protein shakes and coffee drinks sold by different brands have been pulled from store shelves. On Tuesday, the company expanded the recall to include more products in an update posted to the US Food and Drug Administration's website.
The reason for the recall, according to the FDA and Lyons Magnus, is that the products "did not meet commercial sterility specifications." They could potentially be contaminated with organisms, including the one that causes botulism, according to Lyons Magnus and the FDA.
King's Hawaiian, the only food product that's been included in this recall so far, announced it's recalling its pretzel bread, including its pretzel hamburger buns, pretzel slider buns and pretzel bites "out of an abundance of caution" because they use a Lyons Magnus ingredient affected in the larger beverage recall.
Factories in China’s southwest have shut down and a city imposed rolling blackouts after reservoirs to generate hydropower ran low in a worsening drought, adding to economic strains at a time when President Xi Jinping is trying to extend his hold on power.
Companies in Sichuan province including makers of solar panels, cement and urea closed or reduced production after they were ordered to ration power for up to five days, according to news reports Wednesday. That came after reservoir levels fell and power demand for air conditioning surged in scorching temperatures.
“Leave power for the people,” said an order from the provincial government dated Tuesday.
In Sichuan, which has 94 million people, water levels at hydropower reservoirs are down by as much as half this month, according to the Sichuan Provincial Department of Economics and Information Technology.
The sun could be sending a storm to Earth over the next few days. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), our fiery star spit out a series of bursts on Sunday that are now headed in the direction of our planet and could trigger a strong geomagnetic storm.
One of those bursts, called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, is expected to collide and consume another, creating what's called a cannibal CME event. According to The Weather Channel, these events can spark strong geomagnetic storms — and in this case, it's headed in our direction.

NOAA expects that the CMEs will hit on Thursday, but before they do, the agency said that Earth will also be blasted on Wednesday with relatively fast solar winds, known as a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream. The solar winds alone could trigger a minor geomagnetic storm on Wednesday, but those conditions are expected to escalate to strong conditions, known as G3, once the solar bursts make their appearance.
Former President Donald Trump signaled that he intends to capitalize on the FBI's Mar-a-Lago raid – sharing an op-ed that predicting Republicans might exact vengeance by using law enforcement to go after Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Trump shared without comment an op-ed by loyalist and conservative columnist Kimberly Strassel in the Wall Street Journal, whose work he has frequently promoted in the past.
The writer describes a 'boomerang history of unleashed governmental powers,' observing that Republicans used a post-watergate independent counsel statute to go after President Bill Clinton in a warning to the party that currently has unified control of government.
Homeless encampments have grown severely in certain neighborhoods in North Portland, particularly along the Peninsula Crossing Trail.

Former President Donald Trump called for dissolving the January 6 Committee in the wake of Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) primary loss, deeming her defeat a “referendum on the never ending Witch Hunt.”
“I assume that with the very big Liz Cheney loss, far bigger than had ever been anticipated, the January 6th Committee of political Hacks and Thugs will quickly begin the beautiful process of DISSOLUTION?” Trump said in a TruthSocial post on election night.
“This was a referendum on the never ending Witch Hunt. The people have spoken!” he exclaimed:
What happens when the scientific evidence is so clear about the spike protein from the COVID vaccines remaining in your body that the CDC has to admit they were wrong?
They just delete the inaccurate statement and say nothing. Nothing!
The mainstream press doesn’t pick it up at all of course. There was no press release or anything to let people know.
Members of left-leaning media networks CNN, MSNBC and NBC, as well as leading Democrats, have mocked Republican criticism of funding in President Biden’s proposed Inflation Reduction Act, which would double the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) workforce over the next decade.
Republican politicians have voiced concern that the plan would not only raise taxes on lower- and middle-class Americans, but could also increase the amount of tax audits, disproportionately affecting citizens who are unable to afford legal counsel.
Democrats have repeatedly insisted that the Inflation Reduction Act will not affect those making less than $400,000 or less a year, but FOX Business recently confirmed that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) had informed lawmakers and taxpayers that those under the threshold would still account for around $20 billion in revenue for the legislation. Republicans claim this directly contradicts Biden and other Democrats' promises that no one in the middle- and lower-income brackets would get hit with increased audits. Both CNN and MSNBC admitted in on-air reports that an increase in the amount of taxes collected would allow the IRS to bolster its workforce.
The Democratic state prosecutor who Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis suspended allegedly made several taxpayer-funder trips to attend events held by an activist group featuring some of the most famous radical Left district attorneys in the country, according to a report.

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who lost her reelection bid Tuesday is reportedly planning on mobilizing a "unified effort" to oppose any plans former President Trump may have to run for reelection.
"In coming weeks, Liz will be launching an organization to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president," Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told Politico.
Cheney will use the group as her primary political outreach organization as she debates whether to run for president in 2024.
The group's name has not been publicly announced yet, but Politico speculates that it could be called The Great Task, which is the name of Cheney's last campaign ad. She referenced The Great Task, which is from President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, during her concession speech on Tuesday evening.
Disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly videotaped himself having sex with multiple children — including in vile footage where he repeatedly referred to his goddaughter’s “14-year-old” anatomy, prosecutors alleged Wednesday in opening statements of his federal trial in Chicago.
Jurors are expected to see parts of three videotapes allegedly depicting Kelly having sexual contact with his then-14-year-old goddaughter, Jane, over the course of the trial, Assistant US Attorney Jason Julien told the court.
“The defendant, Robert Kelly, had sex with multiple children,” Julien said. “He made videotapes of himself having sex with children.”

The Internal Revenue Service 2021 report contains a bit more information about who the IRS aims to target – you. These special IRS Criminal Investigation agents are armed and ready to prevent a penny from leaving the government’s control. After only six months of training, these armed accountants will learn how to use weapons and other law enforcement tactics against the general population.
Agents at the National Criminal Investigation Training Academy (NCITA) participated in mock raids on suburban houses. The Criminal Investigator Training Program (CITP) is followed by a 14-week NCITA Special Agent Investigative Techniques (SAIT) course. “The SAIT program trains new agents in tax law, evidence gathering, interviewing, report writing, methods of proving unreported income, and money laundering violations. It also provides physical fitness conditioning and use of force training, which includes firearms, weaponless tactics, and building entry,” the report states.
Additionally, agents will need to complete quarterly training in “firearms, defensive tactics, and building entry.” How often do they plan to raid homes under the guise of taxes? The report states that these agents will “use good judgment” in order “to apply the appropriate degree of force necessary to safely carry out enforcement activities, including issuing search warrants, arrests, surveillance, dignitary protection, undercover activities, and seizures.”
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has reiterated his promise that the bloc will intervene if “stability” is jeopardized in Kosovo during a press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Wednesday.
”Should stability be jeopardized, KFOR stands ready to intervene and will take any measures that are necessary to ensure a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all the people of Kosovo,” he said.
The leader of the military alliance called on “all sides” to “show restraint and avoid violence,” arguing that diplomacy was the only way forward, even while threatening military intervention under the UN mandate if the two parties did not abide by the EU-mediated dialogue.
Stoltenberg is set to hold a meeting with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti later on Wednesday, while Vucic and Kurti will meet on Thursday in Brussels to continue the dialogue.
Tensions between Serbia and Kosovo are running high after the province passed a law requiring Serbs to exchange their passports for special Kosovo-issued documents and switch out their Serbian license plates for plates issued in Kosovo.
Stoltenberg initially told Vucic that NATO would intervene in Kosovo in the event of stability being jeopardized during a phone call on August 3, echoing a communique from the NATO mission to Kosovo issued the previous week.
