"Space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man. And only if the United-States occupies a position of preeminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theatre of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space, any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea. We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, ***and they must be won and used for the progress of all people." -- John F. Kennedy, speech at Rice University, 12 September 1962
According to MiddleEastMonitor, a leading Israeli newspaper said that Israel “is now closing in on a right-wing, religious and authoritarian revolution” aimed at destroying democracy. The recent Israeli elections have brought Benyamin Netanyahu’s Likud party back to power, but with the ultra-right wing religious party led by Itamar Ben-Gvir as an allied partner.
Israel defines itself as a Jewish and democratic state. It has democratic institutions, such as elections to the Knesset, but has been officially labeled by the UN and human rights organizations as an apartheid state.
Tech entrepreneur, philanthropist and founder of the Covid Early Treatment Foundation, Steve Kirsch, talks about his article titled “Evidence of Harm” and subtitled “A Short Collection of Key Evidence Showing Covid Vaccines are Not Safe and Effective, Not Even Close. They are the Most Deadly Vaccines We’ve Ever Produced.”
Kirsch also talks about how government public health agencies, including the CDC and the FDA, as well as The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice, studiously avoid looking at data showing how dangerous covid vaccines are.
The following shows breakdowns of the wealth-quintiles — percentages of the wealth held by the nation’s households, all the way from the top fifth to the bottom fifth — in the “US$ Trillions” for each fifth — during the latter quarter (the “2021:Q2”), as is shown on that web-page:

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey criticized the social media company for quietly tracking the devices users share tweets from.
Dorsey characterized the feature as a 'step backwards,' but noted that it was added last year before Elon Musk took over the company.
The 45-year-old stepped down as Twitter's CEO last November, and it is unclear whether the device tracking feature was added before or after his departure.
His comments came amidst a spat of tweets he fired off Sunday evening, including an exchange he got into with Musk over the renaming of the Twitter feature Birdwatch.
On Saturday Musk announced that Birdwatch - intended to hamper misinformation by allowing users to add notes to tweets - would be rebranded as 'Community Notes,' a name which Dorsey called 'the most boring Facebook name ever.'
Look at the chart below. The chart explains everything.
It explains why Washington is so worried about China’s explosive growth. It explains why the US continues to hector China on the issues of Taiwan and the South China Sea. It explains why Washington sends congressional delegations to Taiwan in defiance of Beijing’s explicit requests.
It explains why the Pentagon continues to send US warships through the Taiwan Strait and ship massive amounts of lethal weaponry to Taipei.
It explains why Washington is creating anti-China coalitions in Asia that are aimed at encircling and provoking Beijing. It explains why the Biden administration is stepping up its trade war on China, imposing onerous economic sanctions on its businesses, and banning critical high-tech semi-conductors that are “are essential not just… for virtually every aspect of modern society, from electronic products and transport to the design and production of all manner of goods.” It explains why China has been singled-out in the US National Security Strategy (NSS) as “the only competitor with both the intent and, increasingly, the capability to reshape the international order.” It explains why Washington now regards China as its biggest and most formidable strategic adversary that must be isolated, demonized and defeated.
Keisha Lance Bottoms, a former mayor of Atlanta and now a senior adviser for public engagement at the White House, claims that “misinformation” allegedly spread by his political opponents is to blame for Biden’s disastrous performance in office.
While the oil giants are making record profits thanks to energy prices rising, and European factories are firing because they can’t pay their gas and electricity bills, the US is sending energy to Europe with their ships loaded with expensive LNG.
Fearing that we do have not enough, now they are sending us another huge amount of energy: nuclear weapons. The United States will send 100 upgraded B61-12 nuclear bombs to Europe in December.
They will replace the previous ones in Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland, and Turkey, and will likely be deployed against Russia in other NATO countries, such as Poland and Finland.
In its strategic documents, the Pentagon announces:
“We will use nuclear weapons to defend the vital interests of the United States and its allies.”
This constitutes a change of strategy that brings the world even closer to a nuclear war, which would cause the disappearance of the human species from the face of the Earth.
Read carefully. Pfizer is committing crimes against humanity, specifically against our children.
The vaccine has resulted in cardiac arrest not in an elderly person but in a two month old baby.
“Why did they not follow up on the 2-month-old baby’s condition, after going into cardiac arrest an hour after receiving an experimental vaccine? Why is there no further information? Is it because he died? Or was the baby removed from an experiment? Why would the author of the report not mention this?”
We call upon the US Department of Justice to undertake a criminal investigation against Pfizer.
We call upon governments worldwide to immediately suspend the mRNA vaccine.
A class action law suit is also required on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of victims of the mRNA vaccine.
Never mentioned by the media, Pfizer has a criminal record with the US Department of Justice.
In 2009 Pfizer was indicted on charges of “fraudulent marketing”.
When it comes to fighting inflation, the Democrats always come up with asinine ideas. In this case, Chef Boyardee plays a starring role. Sean Patrick Maloney, a Democrat Congressman from NY AND the fundraising head of the DCCC had his ‘let them eat cake’ moment yesterday.
Due to redistricting, Maloney is in a very tight race. As of this last week, it’s now considered a toss-up. Today, he went on NBC’s Meet The Press and informed viewers that Joe Biden has been getting a bum rap and has accomplished a lot more than anyone realizes.
Let’s see, what has Biden accomplished thus far? No new jobs since he took office. The disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. Our foreign policy in a shambles. The border is a sieve. And then there’s inflation. It seems Sean Maloney knows exactly how his constituents feel and this is his advice for them.
“Yeah, well, I grew up in a family where, you know, if the gas price went up, the food budget went down,” Rep. Maloney said. “So by this time of the week, we’d be eating Chef Boyardee if that budget wasn’t gonna change. So that’s what families have to do. Here’s what we should do,” Maloney said before discussing actions that he says would lower inflation.
The Legend-class national security cutter (NSC) USCGC Hamilton (WMSL 753) arrived in Turku, Finland for a scheduled port visit, Nov. 5, 2022.
While in Turku, Hamilton leadership will meet with government and Finnish Navy leaders….
“We are honored and enthusiastic to call on the historic city of Turku. This visit is oriented to build on the decades-long partnership between the United States and Finland,” said Capt. Matthew Brown, commanding officer of USCGC Hamilton (WMSL 753). “The U.S. Coast Guard’s collaboration with the Finnish Border Guard advances our shared ambitions…in the Baltic Sea.”
Prior to arriving in Turku, Hamilton conducted multiple operations with allies and partners in the Baltic Sea, including…boarding exercises with the Swedish Coast Guard….
Russia has announced Sunday that a major dam in the Russian-controlled region of Kherson was damaged in a Ukrainian strike using an advanced US-supplied system.
"Today at 10:00 there was a hit of six HIMARS rockets. Air defense units shot down five missiles, one hit a lock of the Kakhovka dam, which was damaged," Russian news agencies quoted local emergency authorities as saying.
Russia has warned that it will take retaliatory measures against Israel in case the Tel Aviv regime supplies Ukraine with military equipment and aid amid the military conflict there.
Bloomberg television news network, citing two unnamed sources familiar with Russian policy, reported that Moscow would respond if Israel passed along missile systems directly or through a third party to Ukraine. The report did not specify what action Russian officials might take.
The Tel Aviv regime seems to be warming to the idea of supplying military equipment to Ukraine.
However, the coming change of administration in the Israeli-occupied territories leaves future policy under question. Benjamin Netanyahu, who is expected to form the next Israeli cabinet, has been known for his good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Webmaster addition: So, Israel sends more munitions, Russia slaps their wrist, and Israel "invites" the United States into war with Russia!
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered armed members of a group monitoring ballot drop boxes in Arizona to stay at least 250 feet away from the locations following complaints that people wearing masks and carrying guns were intimidating voters.
U.S. District Court Judge Michael Liburdi said members of Clean Elections USA, its leader and anyone working with them are also barred from filming or following anyone within 75 feet (23 meters) of a ballot drop box or the entrance to a building that houses one. They also cannot speak to or yell at individuals within that perimeter unless spoken to first.
The temporary restraining order was requested by the League of Women Voters of Arizona after Clean Elections USA, encouraged people to watch 24-hour ballot boxes in Maricopa County, Arizona’s most populous county.
Webmaster addition: First it was we MUST wear masks, now it's DON'T wear masks; can anyone figure out this crazy government? :)
Webmaster addition: Frankly, no matter wins, there will be accusations of cheating. Republicans will claim Democrats cheated while Democrats will claim Russia and China and Iran (the usual scapegoats) cheated. Based on 2016 there will be violence, either real or stages, used by Biden to declare that the GOP are the threat as he did in his two previous speeches.
Unaffordable rents, choosing between meals and heating, and tears when the bills arrive, these are some of the issues that have drawn thousands from across England to the Capitol on a rainy day, concerned about the future, they're protesting against what they see as years of government inaction.
It has led to an untenable cost of living crisis, a squeeze on people's finances and has pushed public services to the brink of destruction.
Just over a week ago, Meta CFO Dave Wehner confidently stated that the not-so-giant tech firm will basically freeze headcount and limit new hiring...
Our pace of hiring slowed in the third quarter, consistent with our previously-stated plans. We added 3,700 net new hires in Q3, down from our Q2 net additions of 5,700 despite Q3 typically being a seasonally stronger hiring period. We expect hiring to slow dramatically going forward and to hold headcount roughly flat next year relative to current levels...
We are making significant changes across the board to operate more efficiently. We are holding some teams flat in terms of headcount, shrinking others and investing headcount growth only in our highest priorities. As a result, we expect headcount at the end of 2023 will be approximately in-line with third quarter 2022 levels.
At the time, we were a little surprised (given the scale of the losses)...
The November Rare Earth MMI (Monthly MetalMiner Index) broke its short-term downward trend and traded sideways month-over-month. Altogether, the index dropped a modest 0.97%. Rare earths managed to hold their steady trend over most of 2022. This was due to the high demand for EV’s, electronics, and rare earth magnets. Indeed, the global market for all of these products continues to grow rapidly.
It has been a great year for energy stocks as the chart below clearly reveals...
... and it will be an even better year (and decade) for energy stocks.
Why? Not because of what Goldman trader Michael Sullivan wrote last week explaining why Energy has (finally) become everyone's favorite sector (more than two years after we first told our readers to go balls to the wall long XOM):
Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong says,“The cheating in the midterm election next week is going to be so great that it is almost impossible to make a prediction. . . . In a fair midterm election, the Republicans would win the House and the Senate.”
So, what does his Socrates program see for next week? Armstrong, says, “It’s going to be tight, and the Republicans have a shot at taking the House. Technically, they should take the House and the Senate. I am just not sure. The corruption is so bad, it’s crazy. .."
"Pennsylvania sent out hundreds of thousands of ballots to people who are not documented or even American. I’ve gotten emails from people in Canada, they are getting mail-in ballots. They mailed them to Canada...

“Wanna know what would make Biggie’s job easy?” barked Biggie Too, slipping into 3rd person like a warm bath. “On Valentine’s Day, non-farm payrolls is -250k, unemployment is above 4%, Powell says enough is enough, the S&P 500 troughs at 3300, and up we go,” bellowed Biggie, Chief Global Strategist for one of Wall Street’s Too-Big-To-Fail affairs. “The end of the bear market gets given to Biggie, wrapped up in a red bow.” Then Biggie went quiet. Agitating himself. “But Biggie doesn’t get gifts. Not for Valentine’s Day. Not for Christmas. Biggie doesn’t even get damn birthday cards.”
“Biggie is not going to get a signal we got a big low,” said Too. “Biggie is going to get a continuation of a series of lows next year, and it’s going be horrible, just horrible,” he said, not sounding terribly upset about it if I’m being honest. “And somewhere in the middle of it, something is going to break. It always does. Always.” We’ve seen the warning signs bubbling up. The UK pension LDI debacle. “You don’t hike rates this fast and not break something big. It’s coming,” said Biggie. “And listen, you’ll know when to trade the Fed pivot. It’ll be after everyone has given up on the Fed pivot.”
Seven years after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records, an appeals court has found the program was unlawful – and that the U.S. intelligence leaders who publicly defended it were not telling the truth.
In a ruling handed down on Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said the warrantless telephone dragnet that secretly collected millions of Americans’ telephone records violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and may well have been unconstitutional.
Snowden, who fled to Russia in the aftermath of the 2013 disclosures and still faces U.S. espionage charges, said on Twitter that the ruling was a vindication of his decision to go public with evidence of the National Security Agency’s domestic eavesdropping operation.
“I never imagined that I would live to see our courts condemn the NSA’s activities as unlawful and in the same ruling credit me for exposing them,” Snowden said in a message posted to Twitter.
Evidence that the NSA was secretly building a vast database of U.S. telephone records – the who, the how, the when, and the where of millions of mobile calls – was the first and arguably the most explosive of the Snowden revelations published by the Guardian newspaper in 2013.
Cybersecurity units from the National Guard will be activated in 14 U.S. states to help counter any threats to election officials’ networks ahead of, during, and after the upcoming Nov. 8 midterm elections, according to reports.
The 14 include battleground states Arizona, Iowa, and Pennsylvania, as well as Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, New Mexico, New York, Washington, and West Virginia, reported Politico.
