When Russia invaded Ukraine, it immediately became an easy decision for today’s interventionists. Their position was both simple and simplistic: Ukraine is a sovereign and independent country. Russia initiated a war against Ukraine by invading the country. Therefore, Russia is bad and should be condemned. Moreover, the U.S. government, as well as NATO, should come to Ukraine’s defense by furnishing weaponry, money, and training, and possibly even troops.

It’s worth pointing out that interventionists are not entirely consistent with respect to their opposition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. These same interventionists were squarely in favor of the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq some 20 years ago, as well as the resulting long-term occupations. Moreover, these same interventionists castigated and condemned anyone who failed to support the U.S. invasions of those two countries, just as Russian interventionists are saying about Russians who oppose their country’s invasion of Ukraine.

What U.S. interventionists failed to recognize is that simply because Russia invaded Ukraine doesn’t automatically make Ukraine’s position an especially admirable one. Contrary to what U.S. interventionists claim, the war in Ukraine is not about defending the “freedom” of the Ukrainian people. Instead, the war is about the “right” of the Ukrainian government to join NATO. At the risk of belaboring the obvious, going to war in the hope of joining NATO is not same thing as going to war to protect the freedom of the Ukrainian people.

Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, has declassified information showing the extent to which Egyptian agent Ashraf Marwan had given Israel warnings relating to the 1973 Yom Kippur war.

The real identity of “the Angel”, the code name given to Marwan, was revealed decades ago, but debate continues as to whether he was one of Israel's most valuable assets or a double agent.

Now, ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur war, Israel has released a photo of a Mossad handler meeting Marwan, and detailed transcripts of warnings he had passed on to Israel.

Marwan, the son-in-law of former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, told the then Mossad chief Zvi Zamir “there is a 99 percent chance that the war will start tomorrow… it will start simultaneously on both fronts, the Egyptian and the Syrian”.

Those warnings were largely dismissed by the Israeli defence establishment. But they proved accurate.

A month ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, the Israel State Archives on Thursday published a comprehensive collection of thousands of documents, photos, recordings and videos, providing an in-depth look into the way the war was handled and the major intelligence failure that preceded it.

While many protocols and documents relating to the decision-making before and during the 1973 war have been declassified over the years, the entire body of material has now been provided to the public, with the exception of a handful of files that remain sealed.

A specially designated website now displays — currently only in Hebrew — some 3,500 archive files containing hundreds of thousands of pages, 1,400 original paper documents, 1,000 photos, 750 recordings, 150 minutes of government deliberations, and eight video clips. Uploading the material took two and a half years of work.

Israeli occupation forces broke into the Bab Al-Rahma Prayer Hall, located within the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem, on Thursday night, causing extensive damage, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli occupation forces conducted searches in the prayer hall and vandalized parts of its contents while confiscating other items.

A Palestinian man was stabbed and a Palestinian woman in her sixties was shot in Jerusalem on Friday.

The 29-year-old man, Ibadah Jamjoum, was moderately wounded after an Israeli settler stabbed him while he was working in Jerusalem, local sources told The New Arab's Arabic sister service Al-Araby Al-Jadeed. The reporting did not say where in the city the incident took place.

The sources said the woman, 65, was shot in the hand while in occupied East Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site in Islam.

A mosque guard said the gunshot came from the western side of Al-Aqsa, where there are a group of illegal settlement outposts.

Four people were killed as clashes between Palestinian groups returned to a Lebanon refugee camp on Saturday, according to the official Lebanese National News Agency (NNA).

Small armed factions in Saida's Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp exchanged fire on Thursday night with members of the dominant Fatah movement. 

A ceasefire was announced on Friday to end the fighting, which left at least 20 people wounded. 

However, heavy clashes returned to the camp alleyways on Saturday morning, killing a member of Fatah, a member of the Young Muslims group and a civilian, NNA reported.

Israeli airline El Al refused to fly Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to New York to participate in the next United Nations General Assembly session, Israeli media reported.

Israel’s Channel 13 reported that El Al did not put out the tender for Netanyahu’s upcoming trip, which will take place in around ten days.

According to the Israeli channel, there is an unspoken agreement between pilots of the company’s fleet of 777s not to volunteer to pilot the flight for Netanyahu and his wife.

NATO is poised to hold early next year its largest military exercises since the Cold War era, the Financial Times reported on Monday. The drills will simulate a potential Russian invasion and is intended to increase the bloc’s readiness for such a scenario, according to the article.

Bearing the name Steadfast Defender, the exercises will involve around 41,000 troops, more than 50 ships, and between 500 and 700 combat air missions, according to the report. While the exercises are designed to simulate a clash with a fictional coalition named ‘Occasus,’ NATO officials told the FT that the maneuvers are “seen as a key part of demonstrating to Moscow that the alliance is prepared to fight.” 

The exercises will take place in Germany, Poland, and the Baltic states in February and March 2024, and will involve not only the members of the US-led military bloc, but also Sweden, the report said. The Nordic nation applied to join NATO last year, but its application is still in limbo due to the reluctance of Türkiye and Hungary to ratify its bid owing to a number of grievances in bilateral relations.

Federal employees are set to receive the largest pay increase in four decades, courtesy of President Joe Biden.

In a letter sent to Congress last week, Biden called for a 5.2 percent overall pay increase for federal workers—the same increase that he'd included in his budget plan that was sent to Congress earlier this year. Biden said the huge pay increase was necessary so the federal government could "attract, recruit, and retain a skilled workforce with fair compensation in order to keep our government running, deliver services, and meet our nation's challenges today and tomorrow."

Technically, the pay increase will be divided into two separate categories. Federal workers would receive a 4.7 percent across-the-board pay raise, combined with a 0.5 percent bump in so-called locality pay. Because the amount of a federal employee's locality pay varies from place to place based on the cost of living, the actual pay increases might not be the same for all workers.

The Pakistani military regime played from the outset in the late 1970s, a key role in the US sponsored military and intelligence operations in Afghanistan. In the post-Cold war era, this central role of Pakistan in US intelligence operations was extended to the broader Central Asia-Middle East region. From the outset of the Soviet Afghan war in 1979, Pakistan under military rule actively supported the Islamic brigades. In close liaison with the CIA, Pakistan’s military intelligence, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), became a powerful organization, a parallel government, wielding tremendous power and influence.

America’s covert war in Afghanistan, using Pakistan as a launch pad, was initiated during the Carter administration prior to the Soviet “invasion.”

Confirmed by Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Advisor:

“According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.

And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.” (Former National Security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, Interview with Le Nouvel Observateur, 15-21 January 1998)

It is inevitable in any war — even a proxy one — that identical actions by the “enemy” and by your own side will be portrayed as wicked in the first case, moral and justified in the second.

In much of the U.S. establishment and media however, belief in the innate righteousness of U.S. actions is so deeply-rooted that it can become a serious danger to the successful conduct of Washington policy. Why? Because it blinds American policymakers to the likely consequences of their own actions.

The latest example of this involves the scheduled meeting between President Vladimir Putin and North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un. Most Western analysis has focused — probably correctly — on the likelihood that this will lead North Korea to provide Russia with artillery shells, of which North Korea has enormous reserves and considerable production capacity.

The fighting in Ukraine seems to be moving towards a long-term war of attrition, and in such a war, levels of ammunition will play an absolutely central role. This is not an issue of the wickedness of the Russian invasion and the righteousness of support for Ukraine. It is a matter of hard military logistics.

The U.S. is poised to supply Ukraine with ATACMS missiles, according to an ABC News report on Saturday.

“They are coming,” an official said, adding that all plans concerning security assistance to Ukraine are subject to change. Army Tactical Missile Systems, or ATACMS, are “on the table” for a future aid package, a second official told ABC. ATACMS missiles — which boast a range 190 miles or 300 km — could help Ukrainian forces strike targets in Crimea, regarded by top Ukrainian officials and many Western observers as the Ukraine War’s decisive terrain.

The planned ATACMS transfer has not been corroborated by any officials willing to speak on the record. "There's no decision on ATACMS right now," said White House spokesman John Kirby, according to ABC News. "As the president has said, they're not off the table… we continue to discuss the viability of ATACMS,” he added.

The reported decision to send ACAMS missiles to Ukraine, if confirmed, would follow a longstanding Western pattern of initially refusing to supply Kyiv with certain high-profile weapons only to reverse course as the war drags on. Senior U.S. officials asserted in the opening weeks of the 2022 Russian invasion that there are no plans to send Patriot missile batteries to Ukraine. They noted that these systems would need to be operated on Ukrainian territory by American troops, thus making the U.S. an active participant in the conflict.

Last week, State Farm posted a $13.2 billion underwriting loss for its 2022 property-casualty business, the largest underwriting loss in its 100-year history.

The loss relates primarily to State Farm's auto insurance companies, which—while reporting earned premium of $45.7 billion— incurred claims and loss adjustment expenses of $48.4 billion and other underwriting expenses of $10.8 billion resulted in the captive's highest-ever underwriting loss.

“In 2022, State Farm's auto insurance companies reported record underwriting losses due to rapidly increasing claims severity and significant additions to prior accident year incurred claims," the carrier reported in a media statement.

However, overall losses were expected. Speaking at the Property-Casualty Insurance Joint Industry Forum in December 2022, Michael Tipsord, CEO of State Farm, broke the news that the auto giant would record its highest-ever underwriting loss. “We missed severity badly. We did not anticipate the inflationary pressures," Tipsord said.

The underwriting results reflect significantly higher incurred claims for auto and higher homeowners non-catastrophe incurred claims, as well as another year of catastrophe activity across the country, according to a statement released last week.

Webmaster addition: We have auto insurance with State Farm. Being good drivers, we have not filed a claim since moving to Indiana. We were just notified that our premiums are going up. Now it isn't all that much, but for people on fixed incomes like us, this will cause problems.

The world needs international digital ID systems like coronavirus passports and Artificial Intelligence should be regulated by a global body similar to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Sunday.

Speaking before the “One Future” session of the G20 Summit in India, the top Eurocrat declared that the “future will be digital” and therefore more globalist institutions will be needed to set boundaries and regulations.

The German politician, who before ascending to her unelected role as EU Commission President served as Berlin’s Defence Minister, said: “Today I want to focus on AI and digital infrastructure. As it has been described, AI has risks but also offers tremendous opportunities. The crucial question is how to harness a rapidly changing technology.”

“In the EU, in 2020, we presented the first-ever law on artificial intelligence. We want to facilitate innovation while building trust. But we need more. What the world does now will shape our future. I believe that Europe — and its partners — should develop a new global framework for AI risks,” von der Leyen continued.

She said that Europe and its allies should develop a “global framework for AI risks” but that there will also need to be standards set at the global level through the United Nations.

President Joe Biden held a press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Sunday evening where he appeared confused and rambling, and eventually told the audience he was going to bed.

Biden, 80, made an awkward joke where he called the 1987 anti-Vietnam War movie Good Morning, Vietnam, a “song.”

“One of my staff members said, remember the famous song ‘Good Morning Vietnam’? Well, good evening, Vietnam,” he said to no laughter.

On September 7, the Russian Rybar channel on Telegram released never before seen footage of recent operations by the reconnaissance groups of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, commonly known by its previous abbreviation GRU, behind Ukrainian front lines.

The operations include a series of deadly ambushes against Kiev forces in the northeastern Ukrainian regions of Chernihiv and Sumy.

Video footage shows Russian reconnaissance groups targeting several military vehicles with assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and explosive devices. The dead bodies of several Ukrainian troops who were killed in the ambushes can be seen in the footage.

According to Ryabr, the aim of these ambushes was to collect intelligence. Russian reconnaissance groups seized encoded communication devices, maps and other documents during each ambush.

In one operation, a reconnaissance group blew up a bridge regularly used by Kiev forces to move military equipment. The exact location of the bridge is not known yet.

Newly released surveillance video reportedly shows BLM martyr Ta'kiya Young looted liquor bottles from a Kroger in Columbus, Ohio while pregnant and drove into a police officer before she was shot.

"New surveillance video footage of Ta'kiya Young in the moments before her death in the Columbus, Ohio area has been released," Andy Ngo reports. "They show the pregnant woman (she has the long braided weave) stealing liquor before leaving with two female accomplices. The theft alarm goes off as they quickly reach the parking lot. Young gets into a black Lexus sedan parked in a disabled spot."

"Two responding officers instruct Young to get out of the car, which she refuses. After she drives into one of the officers in an apparent escape attempt, she is shot once, killing her. Her death has sparked #BLM protests and demands for prosecution against the unnamed officer. Leftists have been trying to dox him and his family address," Ngo said.

This is a crucial test being launched by the globalists to see if law-abiding Americans will hand over their Second Amendment rights by complying with an extra-constitutional edict based, not on American law, but on United Nations law.

New Mexico’s Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an “emergency” executive order on Friday suspending the right of law-abiding citizens to open carry and conceal carry any firearms in the crime-ridden Democrat-run city of Albuquerque.

The totally unconstitutional edict also applies to the surrounding county for a period at least 30 days, after Grisham declared a “public health emergency” in response to a spate of recent gun violence.

One sheriff of a county north of the city has already told Governor Grisham to go pound sand.

Sorry, governor, but you are not allowed, no politician is allowed, to “suspend” the Constitution.

It is extraordinary how concern with child abuse has altered over the past 25-40 years.  In culling my overgrown library, I came across documents and  articles about the frame-up of the Amirault family in the Fells Acre day care case during the 1980s and the Wenatchee, Washington child abuse in the 1990s witch hunt that I played a role in exposing.

The creation of Child Protective Services at the insistent of “child advocates” created a new government bureaucracy with little to do.  “Child advocates” fantasized that children were routinely raped by their parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, Sunday school teachers, and child care providers.  With the new bureaucracy in place, perpetrators of child abuse had to be found in order to justify the agency and its budget.

In Wenatchee seeing opportunity a corrupt police detective, Robert Perez, pressured his 13-year old daughter to bring rape accusations.  She later recanted, but not before many parents and the local pastor, Robert Roberson and his wife, were accused of organized rape of children.  Children were taken from their homes and put into fraudulent “recovered memory therapy” used to convince them that they had been raped.

The corrupt Child Protection Services agency and prosecutor could not make the false charges stick against Pastor Robertson and his wife, but large numbers of parents who were poor were convicted, sent to prison and their children taken into custody.

The sprawling social experiment known as California faces an uphill battle on reparations, after a new poll from UC Berkeley and the LA Times reveals that voters overwhelmingly oppose the idea of cash payments for black descendants of slaves by a 2-to-1 margin.

The poll found that 59% of voters oppose cash payments vs. 28% who support the idea. Four out of 10 voters "strongly" opposed the idea.

Interestingly, just 19% of those opposed cited cost as an issue. The majority simply says it's unfair to today's taxpayers and wrong to single out one group for reparations.

In the Berkeley poll, when voters who oppose reparations were asked why, the two main reasons cited most often were that “it’s unfair to ask today’s taxpayers to pay for wrongs committed in the past,” picked by 60% of voters, and “it’s not fair to single out one group for reparations when other racial and religious groups have been wronged in the past,” chosen by 53%.

Only 19% said their reason was that the proposal would cost the state too much, suggesting that money alone is not the main objection.

Among Democrats, 43% favored and 41% opposed cash reparations. Republicans were strongly against the proposal at 90% with only 5% in favor. Independents were 65% opposed and 22% in favor.

Black California voters were more likely to support cash payments than any other demographic, with 76% in favor and 16% opposed, the survey found. Almost two-thirds of white voters were opposed as were 6 in 10 Latino and Asian voters. -LA Times

During the hysteria of the covid pandemic questions swirled around how the federal government would respond to the events under the declaration of a national health emergency.  What kind of powers would they claim to have and which constitutional rights would they try to suppress?  What many Americans did not consider, however, was the implementation of emergency powers under state governments rather than the White House.

Most of the covid mandates crushing the US economy during that period were not federal mandates, but state mandates, and there's a good reason why covid tyrants chose to focus on state level restrcitions.

There are a number of requirements and obstacles for any president seeking to enforce mandates at the federal level, along with more scrutiny and oversight than is commonly understood.  Though a president can declare emergencies unilaterally, there are still some legal checks and balances (to be sure, these are quietly being eroded with each passing year). 

On the other hand, state governors in 44 states have sweeping authorities under emergency conditions, with very little immediate legal recourse.  As we have seen recently in places like Hawaii and now New Mexico, Democrat governors have been playing with fire (no pun intended) as they seek to push the envelope of emergency controls at the state level.

“As a former educator and longtime employee of the Chicago teachers union, what grade would you give the current system and why?”

That question was put to Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson during his appearance Thursday night at the Economic Club of Chicago.

His answer:

I personally don’t give a lot of attention to grades…. My responsibility is not merely to just grade the system but to fund the system.

That’s how I am ultimately going to grade whether our public school system is working - based upon the investments we make to the people who rely on it.”

He offered nothing further about how to grade the schools or educational outcomes.

According to a new Viavoice poll, Marine Le Pen is now France’s second most popular politician, only behind former prime minister and potential centrist presidential candidate Édouard Philippe. This might not seem surprising at first: Le Pen has reached the last two presidential runoffs and boasts the second largest contingent in parliament. But it will still be a shock for older generations of French citizens who remember her controversial father, Jean-Marie, and the extreme origins of her party, now known as Rassemblement National (RN).

Marine has remained an immigration hardliner but has also detoxified the RN brand by tacking her party, traditionally a home for shopkeepers and small business owners, to the Left on welfare and economics. While keeping the historic south-eastern stronghold, her social stances have made the post-industrial north of France, previously a Left-wing bastion, her new fiefdom (she has been an MP in a northern district since 2017). 

Yet Le Pen’s appeal is truly national. In the first round of last year’s presidential election, she only decisively trailed Emmanuel Macron in the over-60s age category, beating the President in every working-age category. She also beat Macron in the first five income deciles.

Danelo Cavalcante, a convicted murderer, has been sighted operating a stolen vehicle in the vicinity of a town in Pennsylvania, over a week following his escape from Chester County Prison.

The convict was captured on a residential surveillance camera on Saturday evening near Phoenixville, located in northern Chester County, as per the Pennsylvania State Police. This area is more than 20 miles north of the search perimeter established by officials to apprehend the fugitive.

The surveillance images reveal Cavalcante clad in a yellow or green hooded sweatshirt, a black baseball cap, green prison trousers, and white shoes. He was also seen driving a white Ford Transit van with Pennsylvania license plates, which was reported stolen by Baily’s Dairy. The vehicle is identifiable by a refrigeration unit mounted on its roof.

Prior to this, Cavalcante was sighted on Friday just north of Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, captured by a trail camera. Lt. Col. George Bivens of the Pennsylvania State Police expressed his belief that the fugitive is growing "more desperate."

He stated during a press conference on Friday, "I believe he has always been very dangerous and I've said that from the start. He's already murdered two people — one in Brazil and one here in a very brutal manner. He's a very dangerous individual and he remains so."

A new report by UN experts states that over 20,000 people from the city of Benghazi in Libya were forced to evacuate their homes within a short space of time.

According to the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper, the residents were forced to give up their properties and documents to brigades affiliated with General Khalifa Haftar. 

The report urged Haftar’s forces to immediately stop the forced evacuations of residents and the demolition of homes, and to put an end to reprisals and violence against demonstrators.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government faces a possible internal revolt after he offended his religious allies by making the remark that “God has not always protected us in Europe.”

The remark came in the context of the Israeli government trying to discourage Jewish religious pilgrims from traveling to the town of Uman, in Ukraine, where the chassidic legend, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, is buried.

Chassidic Jews make the annual pilgrimage to Uman around the time of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, to pray and to enjoy revelry — not all of which is of a strictly religious sort. The pilgrimage is also an economic boon to Ukraine. But the difficulties of wartime travel have made it difficult for pilgrims to fly directly to Ukraine, and the government is worried about the safety of those traveling to the region.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

“God hasn’t always shielded us, especially in Europe,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday, concerning God’s protection of the Jewish people, when he wanted to warn of the security risk of visiting the graves of hassidic rabbis during Rosh Hashanah. Netanyahu’s statement has sparked a significant reaction from religious communities in Israel.

The prime minister, addressing those contemplating a pilgrimage to Uman, Ukraine for Rosh Hashanah, sought to emphasize the potential dangers of the journey. “Israeli citizens traveling to Ukraine must take personal responsibility. There are no safeguards there,” he stated. The controversial part of his remarks followed, “Historically, God hasn’t always shielded us, especially in Europe and Ukraine.”

The days appear mostly to be over when people routinely used a check to pay for their mortgage, utilities and various products and services like groceries, shoes and car servicing.

Likewise it appears to be rare that a group of friends all pitch in $20 after dining together at a restaurant.

So many of those transactions now are electronic.

But those systems are not infallible, and when they’re down, there are problems.

A new report in the Federalist pointed out the problem for small businesses this week when the popular payment system, Square, failed.

Millions of business had to halt doing business with their customers, unless those customers were carrying cash.

“An estimated 64 million small businesses use Square to facilitate credit card transactions, pull sales reports, review profit percentages, and manage inventory. A disruption that began midday on Thursday, however, left those customers without the ability to run their businesses effectively unless clients paid cash.”

The company, hours later at the close of the business day, did in fact, admit that it was “experiencing issues with multiple Square services.”
