As the security crisis and energy instability worsen in Europe, mainly in Germany, the unfeasibility of continuing the current European model of automatic alignment with American foreign policy becomes increasingly evident. American rivalry with Russia, passively embraced by European states, seriously violates EU’s interests and places the entire bloc under a serious threat.

Germany is the most economically important country for the EU and at the same time the most dependent on Russia. Without any energy sovereignty and dependent on the partnership with Moscow to supply its internal market, Berlin sought for decades to maintain pragmatic relations with Russia, capable of overcoming any political or ideological rivalries, aiming exclusively at the well-being of the German people and the local economy. But this stance has been completely abandoned.

During the early days of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, Germany was the first country to try to somehow resist American pressure for sanctions, at least as far as energy is concerned. But the Scholz government was absolutely unable to resist pressure from Washington and quickly “surrendered”, favoring the American anti-Russian strategy and harming German interests.

Obviously, without the energy to power its industry, the negative effects have already started to be seen in Germany, but the situation will only get worse as winter gets more severe in Europe. With high energy prices and no prospect of improvement in the short term, as well as under a strong crisis of legitimacy with constant mass protests, the country is truly immersed in a severe crisis which consequences spread beyond national borders, since, with the largest European economy weakened, the whole EU is affected.

A recent alleged death threat against pro-life activists indicates that Jane’s Revenge — the group that has claimed responsibility for several violent attacks against pregnancy centers and pro-life organizations throughout the nation — doesn’t just support the killing of unborn children but is willing to “shoot up” those working against their evil and dystopian dream.

On Saturday, Students for Life Action (SFLAction) members and other Nebraskan pro-life activists reported finding a death threat attributed to Jane’s Revenge posted to the door of the St. John Paul II Newman Center near the University of Nebraska-Omaha’s Scott Campus. The pro-lifers were gathering at the facility that morning to attend a Political Leadership Workshop and brainstorm how they could utilize the pro-life organization’s “Campaign for Abortion Free Cities to shut down the late-term abortion facility in the state,” according to a Twitter post from SFLAction President Kristan Hawkins.

Webmaster addition: I guess the FBI is too busy investigating heterosexual white male domestic terrorists ... or something.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, and self-control. But the fruit of public libraries is faux diversity, drag queens, and rejection of the sexes — which is why the taxpayer-funded cesspools are “not interested” in giving Kirk Cameron a storytime slot to read his new children’s book on the fruit of the Spirit to kids.

The actor, writer, and producer “has not gotten a single ‘yes’ from the 50-plus public libraries his publisher has contacted so far,” Fox News reported in a Wednesday exclusive. According to Cameron’s publisher and Fox’s scouring of the libraries’ websites, “Many of the same libraries that won’t give Cameron a slot … are actively offering ‘drag queen’ story hours or similar programs for kids and young people.”

It’s not only drag queen story hours, where adult men derive pleasure from strapping on prosthetic breasts, painting theatrical contour all over their masculine faces, and sporting fishnet tights for an audience of children. These libraries reportedly host queer book clubs, a series called “Every Month Is Pride Month,” and so-called “get free help” events where attorneys and other volunteers help patrons fill out legal paperwork to change their names, record themselves as the opposite sex (or sexless entirely), and alter birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver’s licenses, IDs, and passports. But if you want to read to kids about gentleness, goodness, and kindness, it’s a hard no.

A confession by former German chancellor Angela Merkel regarding the true nature of the Minsk agreements – a roadmap for peace in Ukraine that was brokered by Berlin – could be used as evidence in a tribunal involving Western politicians responsible for provoking the ongoing conflict between Moscow and Kiev, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said.

The former German leader admitted in an interview with Die Zeit on Wednesday that the actual purpose of the Minsk agreements was to give Ukraine time to prepare for a military confrontation with Russia.

“They talk a lot about legal assessments of what is happening around Ukraine, certain tribunals and so on in all sorts of ways,” Zakharova said during a media briefing on Thursday. “But this is a specific reason for a tribunal.”

She claimed that Merkel’s comments were nothing short of the testimony of a person who had openly admitted that everything done between 2014 and 2015 was meant to “distract the international community from real issues, play for time, pump up the Kiev regime with weapons, and escalate the issue into a large-scale conflict,” Zakharova added.

George Soros, a Hungarian-born billionaire whom some consider a real-life Bond villain, has undoubtedly been creative in making ordinary people’s lives miserable through several front groups.

According to Fox News, one of those front groups is aiming for the local service station and the gasoline most people put in their vehicles.

“Governing for Impact (GFI), a secretive George Soros-funded group that has advised the Biden administration, issued a memo to policymakers on how to curb gasoline usage.

“The GFI memo argues that the Clean Air Act provides the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the authority to control, or even prohibit, the commercial sale of any motor vehicle fuel. The memo, which was assembled with climate group Evergreen Collaborative, also argued the agency could force gas stations to build electric vehicle charging stations on their property.”

The idea that the federal government could prohibit the sale of gasoline or diesel fuel by fiat is mad. The GFI memo recognizes this fact in a roundabout fashion. “The groups conclude that the EPA could pursue a complete ban on gasoline under the Clean Air Act, but that they advised against it since the Supreme Court would likely strike it down “despite the clear text of the statute.’” The story does not quote the text the memo refers to if it exists.

It is said that when Elon Musk arrived at failing Twitter, he realized that he had paid $44 billion for a crime scene. He found “Stay Woke” t-shirts. And he found information that details Twitter essentially being an arm of the DNC and perhaps the Deep State. Twitter is not alone. Failing and underperforming “woke” American companies are rotten with woke-ism.

The Minsk accords were signed in order to "give Ukraine time" to make the country stronger, ex-German Chancellor Angela Merkel (in office from 2005 to 2021) said in an interview with the Zeit newspaper published on Wednesday.

"The 2014 Minsk agreement was an attempt to give time to Ukraine. It also used this time to become stronger as can be seen today. The Ukraine of 2014-2015 is not the modern Ukraine," the politician said.

According to her, "it was clear to everyone" that the conflict had stalled and the problem had not been resolved "yet this was precisely what gave Ukraine invaluable time." She expressed doubt that at that time NATO states would have been able to support Kiev to the extent that they do now.

Merkel was the German chancellor when the 2014 state coup occurred in Ukraine and the Minsk agreements on settling the Donbass conflict were concluded with her participation.

In this essay, I describe the current global conservation movement for climate and biodiversity as fundamentally a means of concentrating more wealth, power, and land ownership through the commodification and privatization of nature.  The Global Public Private Partnership’s “Nature Positive” strategy centrally depends on assigning financial value to healthy, or intact nature as ecosystem services so that it can be regulated and sold through the market mechanisms they are designing through global governance.  I provide detailed examples showing the arbitrary and self-serving nature of pricing ecosystem services, as well as how businesses are starting to profit from selling them.  Because the wealthiest people already own a disproportionate amount of nature through concentrated land ownership, they will receive the bulk of profiting from it.  I also illustrate how the “Nature Positive” movement includes the interlocking components of “Nature Based Solutions,” “Sustainable Development” and “30 x 30,” the campaign to “preserve” 30% of the earth’s surface.   These combined business strategies serve as a license to appropriate land, particularly in the global south, by force in large-scale land grabs. I conclude by arguing that the central problem is not that nature is undervalued in dollars, but rather that it is not universally understood as priceless.  We must use this recognition as a foundation for systemic change.

The CIA holds documents that show presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was involved in an intelligence operation before the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a prominent Kennedy assassination reporter alleged Tuesday.

“We’re talking about smoking-gun proof of a CIA operation involving Lee Harvey Oswald,” reporter Jefferson Morley said.

Morley claimed the CIA operation involving Oswald took place in the summer of 1963, three months before the assassination. The allegation from Morley, who has written extensively about the CIA in the 1960s, could shake up the history of the Kennedy assassination if it proves to be true.

Kennedy investigators have long sought to investigate the extent of Oswald’s involvement with intelligence agencies, and whether that could reveal more about whether Oswald was the only person involved in Kennedy’s death. Despite decades of investigations from Congress and independent inspectors, the CIA has never disclosed any involvement with Oswald.

We brought you the news on Tuesday that Jim Baker had been fired from Twitter because he was looking at the Twitter files allegedly without the knowledge of the management.

Musk said the firing was because of a possible role in the “suppression” of information.

Musk termed Baker’s explanation for his actions “unconvincing.”

That would seem to be pretty big news for the media and possibly involve more cover-up, especially when “suppression” is mentioned.

But instead of diving in to investigate it further, what you got from liberal media on social media was a defense of Baker and an attack on Musk and Taibbi for wanting transparency and bringing this to light.

Some claimed as an attorney it would be normal for a lawyer to look at the files before they go out.

At a private event over the weekend, Governor Ron DeSantis said that his administration intends to hold vaccine manufacturers accountable for making false claims about COVID products that have caused injuries and death.

The governor said he would be working with Florida Surgeon General Joseph A. Ladapo “to hold these manufacturers accountable for this mRNA [shot] because they said there were no side effects and we know that there have been a lot.”

DeSantis made the comments at a Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) event on Saturday at the Florida Governors Mansion. American Greatness reached out to both the RPOF, and the governor’s communications team for comment but did not receive an immediate reply.

“We did a study in Florida and we saw an 86 percent increase in cardiac related activity in people ages 18 to 39 from mRNA shots and so we’re going to be doing some stuff to bring accountability there,” DeSantis told the RPOF Executive Committee members at the event. In the United States, the mRNA products are produced by Pfizer and Moderna.

Now that the proof is in the pudding regarding how often Twitter, the most influential social media platform, was essentially used as an arm of a political party to silence opposing voices, the proverbial beans are being spilled by the hour.

In a separate but related case involving a lawsuit filed against President Joe Biden and his administration by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, in which he alleges the Biden administration colluded with Twitter and other Big Tech firms to censor and suppress freedom of speech, a bombshell emerged in the discovery process.

That bombshell is an email document that clearly shows communications between then-Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ office and its contacts inside Twitter. Though the document is somewhat heavily redacted, it revealed that Hobbs’ office requested the removal of at least two tweets citing “election-related misinformation.”

Dr. Cole is hearing from oncologists and colleagues left and right, and they are seeing an alarming rate of unusual cancers, especially leiomyosarcoma, in the vaginal tract and uterus.

And then they came for the unborn. 

Dr. Ryan Cole, the pathologist who has been speaking about the anomalies he has discovered in the bodies of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients since the roll-out of the covid shots, is now seeing unusual signs that are a huge red flag for fertility.

Not only is the world experiencing plunging birth rates, a trend that has only grown since the roll-out of covid “vaccines,” but now we are also seeing sky-rocketing miscarriages and fetal mortality. An inkling that this would happen was given in early 2022 by whistleblower Mick Haddock, a coffin manufacturer in Toronto, who noticed bulk orders for infant coffins.
