"All wars are started with lies. If a ruler who wanted to start a war told his people the true reasons for that war the people would refuse to go along." -- Michael Rivero

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) is facing increasing challenges as the war against Hamas enters its ninth month. On Monday, Israel lost eight soldiers in an explosion in Rafah, in what Israeli media called the “deadliest incident for IDF” in six months. The number might seem small in the context of the war in Gaza, but the number is far too high for Israeli public opinion.

A week before the explosion, Hamas claimed to have killed an unspecified number of Israeli soldiers after its fighters detonated a booby-trapped house in Rafah.

‘An exhausted army’

The losses underscored Israel’s army chief Herzi Halevi’s warning in recent days about shortages in the military, saying it would prevent Israel from waging the war against Hamas with the same intensity.

Nigel Farage has said the EU and Nato “provoked” Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by expanding eastwards, as the Reform UK leader was challenged over a series of policies and beliefs in a sometimes combative TV interview.

Speaking to BBC’s Panorama on Friday evening, Farage also said Brexit would have benefited the UK economically if he had been running the country, and that many of the Reform candidates criticised for saying offensive things had been “stitched up in the most extraordinary way”.

Challenged on his beliefs over the invasion of Ukraine, and his stated admiration for Vladimir Putin, Farage said he disliked the Russian president personally but “admired him as a political operator” because of the extent of his control over Russia.

On why Putin invaded Ukraine, Farage said: “I stood up in the European parliament in 2014 and I said: ‘There will be a war in Ukraine.’ Why did I say that? It was obvious to me that the ever-eastward expansion of Nato and the European Union was giving this man a reason … to say: ‘They’re coming for us again,’ and to go to war.”

The BBC has a story today about the heatwave in May and early June the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. Apparently, a report by the World Weather Attribution (WWA) group has claimed that climate change made the heatwave 35 times more likely, though exactly what that means goes unexplained.

...

The interesting thing about that BBC story is the complete lack of any mention of the spectacular plunge in temperatures across the northwestern United States as a major winter storm crossed over the Rockies into Montana and Idaho. Newsweek has the story:

Six years after California legalized marijuana, the bodies keep piling up. Earlier this year, six men were murdered in the Mojave Desert. Four of the men had been burned after being shot with rifles. In 2020, seven people were killed at an illegal pot operation in Riverside County.

Violence like this was supposed to disappear after legalization. Legalization advocates argued that making the drug trade legal would end the grip of the cartels. Instead, the legal market has failed, and the cartels are taking over sizable parts of California and the rest of the country.

California's legal drug revenues have fallen consistently, as have those in other legal drug states including Colorado, whose model helped sell the idea that drug money would fix everything.

Despite falling revenues, Colorado legislators brag about $282 million in drug revenue. That number may sound high, but it's a drop in the bucket considering the money that the state and cities like Denver are spending on homelessness, drug overdoses and law enforcement.

A disturbing new study has warned that all recipients of Covid mRNA injections are facing a ticking time bomb where they could be struck down with a sudden brain clot at any moment, without warning.

A new preprint study published and coauthored by Dr. Peter McCullough describes how the Covid vaccination has a much greater risk of causing blood clots in the brain versus the Influenza vaccine.

“There is an alarming breach in the safety signal threshold concerning cerebral thrombosis AEs after COVID-19 vaccines compared to that of the influenza vaccines and even when compared to that of all other vaccines,” the study said in the ‘Conclusions’ section.

“An immediate global moratorium on the use of COVID-19 vaccines is necessary with an absolute contraindication in women of reproductive age.”

New Jersey lawmakers are backing a push in Congress to exclude non-U.S. citizens from the census results that determine each states' share of House of Representative seats.

A resolution filed by state Sen. Joseph Pennacchio, R-Montville, expresses support for the federal “Equal Representation Act,” which would modify the apportionment of House seats, as well as electoral college votes, to be based on the population of U.S. citizens.

“Appropriating representatives to Congress based on citizenship is the only formula that allows for accurate representation in our federal government," Pennacchio said in a statement. "It is imperative that the right of each American citizen to receive equal representation in government is protected from dilution.”

On Friday, CNN legal expert Elie Honig thoroughly dismantled The New York Times’ latest hit piece targeting former President Donald Trump’s ongoing legal battles. The Times op-ed, penned by Leah Litman, a professor at the University of Michigan Law School, cast aspersions on the Supreme Court’s handling of Trump’s immunity case and suggested that political maneuvering is at play.

Litman criticized the Supreme Court for a slow response to Trump’s immunity case, claiming an unusual delay. She argued that the eight-week interval between the court’s agreement to hear the case on February 28 and the scheduling of oral arguments at the end of April was excessively long, given the urgency she attributes to the case. However, her perspective overlooked the standard procedural timelines that the Court often adheres to in complex cases.

The Ambassadors of Italy, France, England, Sweden, and Germany, have been instructed by their governments to "evacuate Lebanon immediately" because Intelligence information says "war is imminent."  Diplomatic staff are visibly panicking as they flee.

The Saudi Arabian Embassy in London warns of the risk of world war after the announcement of an imminent Israeli invasion of South Lebanon : " It is important that everyone understands the danger that awaits us. The conflict will not remain regional, but will very quickly become international. "

Egypt has sent multiple messages to Washington saying: Do not underestimate Nasrallah’s statements or the capabilities of Hezbollah."

Fox News' Bill Melugin shared with X users several headlines from this week alone that shows illegal aliens committing heinous acts of rape and murder against young American women. 

On Thursday, Melugin said here are three headlines since the weekend:

  • Salvadoran illegal alien charged w/ rape & murder of Rachel Morin. Entered as got away last year.
  • Ecuadorian illegal alien charged w/ rape & kidnapping of 13-year-old girl in NYC. Caught & released in 2021.
  • Two Venezuelan illegal aliens charged w/ murdering 12-year-old Jocelyn Nungaray in Houston. Both caught and released at the border this year.

Claire's Observations;  Apparently, to By-di-Bye's apparatchiks, this is just perfectly fine; after all, it's not THEIR daughters getting raped and killed.

And did you see the vile smirk on the face of Squad Member Jaypal, upon seeing the image of an accused rapist on the Fox chiron?!?!?

"Pramila Jayapal, Chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, reacted with a laugh when shown a Fox News chyron about an illegal immigrant accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in New York."

This image should be emblazoned on tshirts with that last quote underneath the image and distributed in her district with the following Statement"  GOT KIDS?!?  NEVER RE-ELECT JAYPAL FOR THE 7TH!!!!

The Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) issued a curtailment order for eastern Idaho irrigators who were found to be noncompliant with a state-approved mitigation plan. This order was scheduled to go into effect recently. The curtailment order impacts about 6,400 junior groundwater rights holders who pump water from the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer. This aquifer supplies water to the Twin Falls Canal Co, which has senior water rights.

"The White House would argue that President Biden prepares every single day for this debate because he is president and he takes questions all the time," she said right off the bat because she had to start with a White House talking point. "Although, of course, reporters would like him to do so much more often. But this is going to be a robust preparation led by his former chief of staff, Ron Klain, who has also been his right-hand man for much of his career, and we know that his closest advisors will be huddled with him at Camp David to prepare for this debate."

Yada, yada, yada. Now here's what Jiang said that really caught my attention:

They argue when it comes to the economy and building more jobs when it comes to issues of democracy having to do with January 6, and so we should expect some of that. But, I'm also told that we should expect some surprises as well, because this is such a critical performance for President Biden not only on the content, but on his physical performance as well.

Well, that is interesting. We should be surprised by Biden's "physical performance" as well? Why is that? Lately, the Biden campaign has been dogged by a slew of viral videos showing Biden's physical and cognitive deterioration. Why, exactly, are we going to be surprised?

Earlier this year, Democrats were counting on Joe Biden's State of the Union address to reset his campaign, and Democrats spent weeks touting his performance as proof he was physically and mentally fit enough to handle the presidency. But Dr. Carole Lieberman, a forensic psychiatrist based in Beverly Hills, Calif., observed that Biden’s speed and volume during the speech suggested that he was drugged.

China shunned the Switzerland-hosted peace talks attended by some 90 countries and which happened last week, however, the government of Xi Jinping has urgently called for an international peace summit hosted by Beijing. China's rationale for skipping the Swiss summit was that the endeavor was futile without Russia's presence.

Geng Shuang, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, recently told the United Nations Security Council in New York, "China calls on the parties to the conflict to demonstrate political will, come together, and start peace talks as soon as possible to achieve a ceasefire and halt military actions."

Claire's Observations:  China is looking for opportunities to become "The Adult in the Room" with regard to international relations, and mediation.  Of course, the US and NATO will shoot this possibility down in short order. 

But please remember;  last year, it was China who brokered a new era of relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia.  THAT took both guts, and nuance, on the side of the Chinese negotiators. https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/iransource/iran-saudi-arabia-china-deal-one-year/

Balkan Peninsula Power Outage: On Friday, a massive power outage affected the Balkan Peninsula, impacting Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia, and parts of Albania. The cause of the blackout remains unclear, and efforts are underway to determine the exact issue. Montenegro experienced the most significant impact, with nearly the entire country losing power due to a network failure. Major cities in Bosnia, including Sarajevo, Mostar, and Banja Luka, also faced blackouts.

“The DOJ is not above the law. Garland is not above the law. Inherent contempt will be called up and brought to the floor,” Anna Paulina Luna said.

“I already filed the resolution and I will be calling up the vote,” Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said on Friday afternoon.

Senior Congressional Correspondent for Fox News Chard Pergram wrote, “Fox is told that Democrats would likely move to table or kill the resolution to hold Garland in “inherent contempt.” Thus, the vote is one step removed from an actual up/down vote on inherent contempt. If the House moves to the table, the issue is dead. However, if the House rejects tabling the measure, it proceeds to hold a vote on actual inherent contempt. Fox is told that Garland has reached out to moderate Republicans, pushing them to reject inherent contempt.”

A UK-based research group published the findings of a forensic investigation on Friday, revealing that Hind Rajab, the six-year-old Palestinian girl found dead along with members of her family in northern Gaza earlier this year, was most likely killed by Israeli tank fire.

The investigation found that the car in which Rajab was killed had been hit with 355 bullets, with most of the entries coming from the right side of the vehicle. The investigation was conducted by Forensic Architecture, Al Jazeera's Fault Lines and the NGO Earshot.

"On the Gazan side of the Kerem Shalom Crossing, where over 1,000 trucks are awaiting collection and distribution… there are hundreds of aid pallets awaiting collection and distribution by the UN aid agencies," Maj. Gen. Ghassan Alian of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has announced.

For months, there have been two primary threats to aid convoys entering the Gaza Strip. First, on their way in, trucks carrying vital humanitarian supplies often come under attack by Israeli settlers. Second, once convoys are inside the Strip, they face the potential of being swarmed and coming under attack by desperate Palestinians who rip the supplies away before they arrive at intended drop-off points.

AP: Palestinians loot a humanitarian aid truck as it crosses into the Gaza Strip in Rafah, December 17, 2023.

Also, in many cases even population enclaves in the Strip which are not currently witnessing direct battles are in desperation and civil chaos amid fuel, food, and medicine shortages - given there is no overall governing authority

Claire's Observations;  All I can see, in my mind's eye upon reading this, and looking at the desperation of these people raiding these boxes, is what's left of Netanyahu's "government" getting up, and dancing a hora to that old classic "That's the way ..... I LIKE IT, uh huh, uh huh!"

Last week, the Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals agreed that mandating covid-19 “vaccines” violates the individual human rights of teachers and other staff of Los Angeles School Unified Districts (“LAUSD”), remanding a lower court’s dismissal of their case against the LA County School District’s vaccine mandate for employees.

This gives some hope that Dr. Joseph Sansome’s case – which if successful, compels Florida’s governor to stop distributing covid injections – will be moved forward in the courts.  After being dismissed the case is now in the Appellate Court. An appeal to which Dr. Francis Boyle has added his affidavit.

“It is my expert opinion that, [the covid injections] meet the criteria of biological weapons and weapons of mass destruction according to Biological Weapons [Convention],” his affidavit states.

Nabil Kuhail, 3 years old, sat on a bed inside the European Hospital in Khan Younis. His grandmother, who took care of him after he lost 24 family members, sat beside him. She attempted to narrate the story of her grandson’s slow death before her eyes, crying more than she spoke. A local reporter recorded her appeal to rescue her grandson, who fell ill due to the new conditions of displacement and pollution in their shelters and tents. 

Nabil’s grandmother, Fatima Kuhail, said that at the beginning of the war, the family had been able to protect their only child, managing to meet his needs until the signs of continuous displacement and living in tents started to take their toll on him. A rash, loss of appetite, sleeping for long hours, and lethargy overtook him. The family took the child to a hospital in Rafah before the Israeli invasion of the city. After a long process, the doctors diagnosed him, but could not offer proper medical care.

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

The Chinese aren’t exactly being subtle about what they are trying to do.  Today, they own more than 300,000 acres of farmland inside the United States, and they have been specifically targeting areas that are located near important military bases.  As you will see below, the Chinese now own farmland very close to 19 different U.S. military bases.  How in the world could our leaders have allowed this to happen?  Foreign adversaries should not be allowed to purchase farmland at all, and yet somehow they have been able to acquire land that is ideal for spying on our military bases over and over again. 

In fact, the New York Post has “identified 19 bases across the US from Florida to Hawaii which are in close proximity to land bought up by Chinese entities”…

Claire's Observations:  The bigger question is, why in heaven has this been allowed to happen?!?

Qui bono (who benefits)?!?

As expected, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum was the hottest anti-globalist multipolar traditional RETVRN values conference of 2024 - possibly of all-time.

The unipolar world suffered non-stop humiliations during this mind-blowing freedom event. For example, Moscow Region governor Andrei Vorobyov made an incredible BRICS announcement during a titillating panel discussion about the joys of biometrics, causing the dollar to lose 50% of its value against the gold-backed ruble:

Biometrics is a tool that gives people better quality and more convenience in certain procedures, keeping them neat and tidy. You don’t need any papers or passports—that will all be in the past. Resisting it, in my opinion, is absurd.

Claire's Observations:  Seriously.  folks?!?  What if the biometrics fail, or the system is down?!?  What happens to people on oxygen, whose machines stop functioning, because that person's biometric scans for the machine fail somehow?!?  How are these biometric IDs going to stop computer attacks on medical systems, happening in this country right now, where people wound up being given the wrong medication because of computer tampering?!?  Sorry, but I for one will find a way to live off grid before I put up with this.
