The U.S. Navy’s Diving and Salvage Center can be found in a location as obscure as its name—down what was once a country lane in rural Panama City, a now-booming resort city in the southwestern panhandle of Florida, 70 miles south of the Alabama border. The center’s complex is as nondescript as its location—a drab concrete post-World War II structure that has the look of a vocational high school on the west side of Chicago. A coin-operated laundromat and a dance school are across what is now a four-lane road.

The center has been training highly skilled deep-water divers for decades who, once assigned to American military units worldwide, are capable of technical diving to do the good—using C4 explosives to clear harbors and beaches of debris and unexploded ordinance—as well as the bad, like blowing up foreign oil rigs, fouling intake valves for undersea power plants, destroying locks on crucial shipping canals. The Panama City center, which boasts the second largest indoor pool in America, was the perfect place to recruit the best, and most taciturn, graduates of the diving school who successfully did last summer what they had been authorized to do 260 feet under the surface of the Baltic Sea.

Last June, the Navy 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.

In an internal memo warning employees to be wary of “anti-science activists,” Pfizer acknowledged that an individual caught on video telling an undercover journalist damaging things about the company did indeed work with the pharmaceutical giant.

Last month, Project Veritas released a video in which Jordon Trishton Walker, identified as a director of research and development for strategic operations and mRNA scientific planning at Pfizer, told an undercover reporter that COVID-19 has been a “cash cow” for the company and said it may be looking into creating mutant strains of the virus in order to “preemptively develop new vaccines” though that’s “not what we say to the public.”

“Promise you won’t tell anyone,” Walker asks in the video, going on to dispute the politically explosive “gain of function” label (which denotes intentionally strengthening viruses to better study their potential effects) in favor of “directed evolution,” which he insists is a sufficiently “slow” form of exploration. “The way it would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them,” he says.

Pfizer responded with a statement that it conducts “in vitro work (e.g., in a laboratory culture dish) to identify potential resistance mutations to” its COVID drug Paxlovid, and that “[m]ost of this work is conducted using computer simulations or mutations of the main protease – a non-infectious part of the virus. In a limited number of cases when a full virus does not contain any known gain of function mutations, such virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity in cells.”

Dr. Robert Malone, a mRNA technology pioneer and prominent COVID-19 establishment critic, called the “word salad” statement “like renaming a child kidnapping and claiming it was an impromptu adoption.”

An angry group of trans activists swarmed the Oklahoma State Capitol to protest a bill that would ban mutilating gender surgeries for children.    

“Transgender activists swarmed the Oklahoma State Capitol Monday to protest proposed bills that would prohibit gender reassignment surgeries for minors,” the Washington Free Beacon reported

Videos show the group shouting “Trans lives matter!” and claiming “This is our house!” and “We are Oklahoma!” 

Senate Bill 129, known as the Millstone Act, would “prohibit Oklahoma doctors from providing gender transition procedures or referral services relating to such procedures to anyone under the age of 26.”   

“Four short years ago when I received the honor to serve in the Oklahoma State Senate, I could not have imagined that it would be necessary to file a bill to protect children in our state from being legally sexually mutilated, yet we find ourselves in that very situation. Surgical and chemical genital mutilation has been occurring in our great state, and it must be stopped,” said Sen. David Bullard when he filed the bill.

Joe Biden will likely travel to Poland near the end of the month, NBC News reported on Monday night, citing three people familiar with the plan.

The sources noted that the visit was not final until the White House confirmed it and the plans could change, Polish state news agency reported.

NBC reported last month that Biden was considering a trip to Europe…highlighting Ukraine’s resilience in the face of the invasion and emphasising America’s solidarity with the Ukrainian nation, according to officials.

John Healey will call on the UK to keep arming Ukraine and produce weapons and ammunition to replenish the military’s own depleted stockpiles.

The government must secure the UK’s position as the leading European nation in NATO and halt further cuts to the army, Labour’s shadow defence secretary will say.

John Healey will also call on Rishi Sunak to crank up British industry to produce weapons and ammunition to replenish the military’s own depleted stockpiles and to keep arming Ukraine.

“The next government will inherit the Ukraine conflict and Russia’s wider aggression,” he will say in a speech at the Royal United Services Institute think-tank in London on Tuesday.

Amid the heavy battles, the Russian advance continues on the northern front lines of Donbass, while in the south the front has stabilized.

Russian troops are developing an offensive in the Kupyansk region. Assault units initiated battles and reached the village of Sinkovka. Street to street battles broke out in the village. To the north, Russian units are entrenched in Tavolzhanka and near Gryanikovka.

The advance of Russian forces was also reported in the Liman direction, where motorized units took control of several dominant heights in the area of Zhuravka.

They also advanced towards Seversk near Belogorovka.

In case of further success, Russian forces may soon begin the battle for the city of Seversk, which they are approaching from three directions. Army units are staging from the east and south-east, where the settlements of Spornoe and Zolotarevka are under their control. Wagner units are coming from the south.

The main fighting in this area is going on near Razdolovka and Vesele.

Last week, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and the Philippines’ National Defense Secretary Carlito Galvez announced plans to accelerate the implementation of the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA)…granting US rotating forces access to four additional military bases, bringing the total number of EDCA sites to nine. It’s the latest example of the Biden administration’s strategy to harness the United States’ “unmatched network of allies and partners” in competing with China. While the US-Philippines announcement is getting plenty of air time, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg’s visit to South Korea and Japan last week is not – but it deserves equal attention. Indeed, of the two, the latter development could prove to be more consequential.

[T]he United States already has access to five air bases, including the Antonio Bautista Air Base in Palawan…as well as Cesar Basa Air Base and Fort Magsaysay near Manila on Luzon Island….

The strategic implications of Stoltenberg’s visit to Seoul and Tokyo….While diplomatic relations between the two northeast Asian countries and the Alliance are nothing new – both South Korea and Japan have been members of NATO’s “partners across the globe” for more than a decade – Stoltenberg’s visit shows that the transatlantic Alliance’s strategic approach to the Indo-Pacific is entering a new phase.

Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders responded to President Joe Biden on Tuesday night, drawing a sharp contrast between the Republican Party’s vision for the country and Democrats’ agenda.

Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders characterized President Joe Biden as being too old and too cozy with the 'woke' and 'crazy' segments of the Democratic Party, in the Republican rebuttal to Tuesday night's State of the Union address. 

'At 40, I'm the youngest governor in the country. At 80, he's the oldest president in American history,' the former Trump White House press secretary said. 'I'm the first woman to lead my state. He's the first man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can't even tell you what a woman is.' 

Sanders - addressing the country from Little Rock - leaned heavily into culture war themes, including that Biden is part of the 'radical left,' which teaches children to 'hate one another on account of their race.' 

'Whether Joe Biden believes this madness or is simply too weak to resist it, his administration has been completely hijacked by the radical left,' she claimed. 'The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left. The choice is between normal or crazy.'  

Sanders, who was sworn-in last month, highlighted her own culture war fight since taking office - banning the use of the term 'LatinX,' which doesn't specify a gender, and signing an executive order banning the teaching of 'Critical Race Theory,' which conservatives say they reject because it demonizes all white people.

President Joe Biden's annual State of the Union on Tuesday began with calls for 'unity' before descending into disarray when he was heckled by Republicans for claiming they want to 'sunset' Medicare and Social Security.

His 73-minute speech started with a request to 'finish the job' of rebuilding the economy reeling from historic inflation and the pandemic - but it quickly turned tense with his dubious accusations against the GOP.

Wearing a white coat lined in white fur, conservative firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene stood up before the joint session of Congress and screamed 'liar' while other Republicans shouted, 'Not true!'

Joe Biden used Tuesday night's State of the Union to tout his economic accomplishments, express his optimism for the future and urge Republicans to work with him.

However, it became an unusually chaotic night as many Republicans loudly voiced their anger at some of Biden's claims, particularly over his administration's handling of the fentanyl crisis, with cries of 'liar!', 'it's all your fault' and 'secure the border'.

Biden attempted to hit back and continued to call for bipartisanship, but the message that is set to underpin his likely reelection announcement was repeatedly attacked. 

Former President Donald Trump said: 'The good news is we are going to reverse every single crisis, calamity and disaster that Joe Biden has created.

'I am running for President to end the destruction of our country and to complete the unfinished business of Making America Great Again.'

The suffering inflicted by the COVID psy op has been under reported by the MSM (understandably.) This article by Michael Senger is the beginning of a reaction to the psychological rape we all have suffered at the hands of the globalists.

Michael Senger–“I recently sent out a query on Twitter as to how people had been affected by the response to COVID at an individual level. The conversation that emerged is an illuminating and haunting reflection of what each of us experienced over the past three years. Below is a tiny selection of the responses that I found especially powerful.”

Nicky Frank: “April 22, 2020 and May 6, 2020. Those were the days my friends Ryan and Jen committed suicide because they couldn’t bare the isolation anymore and people were telling them they’re weak. Ryan’s words “I can’t infect anyone if I’m dead” still haunt me.”

This is the story of how a multibillionaire who has dedicated his life to advancing the cause of the Israeli national security state is now in control of Great Britain’s most sensitive public and military data.

In 2020, software giant Oracle won a gigantic contract with the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) to provide it with cloud infrastructure, digital assistance, data visualization software, mobile hub and development tools. The military is far from the only British institution entrusting its most sensitive data to the Texas-based firm, however. The Home Office, Office of National Statistics and National Health Service, among others, also rely on Oracle databases to function.

For years before signing the MoD agreement, Oracle founder Larry Ellison had been ingratiating himself with the British establishment, employing all manner of well-connected individuals at his foundation. Among these included media executive and father-in-law of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Matthew Symonds, who earned over $600,000 per year as the executive director of the Larry Ellison Foundation. Richard Meredith, a longtime director of the U.K.’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, was also snapped up at a similar salary to become deputy executive director.

Many other well-connected British government officials, including Vel Gnanendran, went straight from the Larry Ellison Foundation into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and worked there at the time that the body signed off on the lucrative Oracle contracts. For years, the Larry Ellison Foundation also bankrolled the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, the former U.K. prime minister’s new political project.

Secretary of State Anthony Blinken recently visited Palestine, where he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority “President” Mahmoud Abbas. People ask in wonder what was achieved, what the United States might do to relieve the tensions, and whether it is possible that the U.S. can bring about the renewal of “peace negotiations.”

However, no such serious advances were made, and apparently they were not even discussed. Indeed, it seems that they were not even needed. According to the official State Department website, Blinken said,

We bolstered our assistance to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, including approximately $50 million in new funding that I announced today in Ramallah, enabling the provision of essential services like food, vaccines, education, as well as vital aid for refugees. That brings U.S. total funding for Palestinians over the last two years to nearly $940 million. We’re supporting quality health care through the East Jerusalem Hospital Network, and we’re making real progress toward implementing an agreement to provide a 4G network in the Palestinian territories.”
