That’s an easy mistake to make, right?

To be fair, there really isn’t much difference between the Ukraine and Israel.

It’s just Israel slaughtering innocent people, backed by the United States.

I get them confused myself sometimes.

On the heels of Sam Esmail’s apocalyptic thriller Leave the World Behind and December news reports that Mark Zuckerberg is constructing a 5,000-square-foot bunker under his ranch on the island of Kauai, the business of fortified shelters is booming.

Adding more fuel to the flames: escalating armed conflict around the globe and, closer to home, the ongoing onslaught of mass shootings and an increasingly fractious political landscape leading up to the presidential election on Nov. 5.

The one-percenters who can afford to pull out all the stops for self-preservation are doing so more than ever — often in a fashion that goes way beyond the submerged corrugated metal units seen on reality shows like Nat Geo’s Doomsday Preppers.

The Global Shapers Community was founded by Schwab and the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) in 2012.  It brings together people under the age of 30 who have been identified by WEF as potential leaders.

Author Ernst Wolff believes it is a proving ground where future political leaders are being selected, vetted and groomed before being positioned in the world’s political apparatus.  It is akin to a WEF indoctrination programme just as is WEF’s Young Global Leaders.

“You have the chance to look forward to a career of 50 years … Maybe more, you will get some injections and so on.  Don’t forget your avatar will continue to live and your brain will be replicated through artificial intelligence and algorithms.  So, we don’t know, but at least 50 years,” Schwab told the Global Shapers at a private WEF session.

As unelected British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak whined about ‘democracy’, a man in the UK was imprisoned for two years for the crime of distributing stickers that criticized mass migration.

Yes, really.

Sam Melia, who has a young daughter and a wife 8 months pregnant with their second child, is behind bars after a judge ruled he had ‘incited racial hatred’ by distributing the stickers.

In an article published yesterday (March 1, 2024) US Army General James Mingus stated that the US Military sent four Stryker-mounted 50-kilowatt laser prototypes to the Middle East last month.

Early last month, the US Army sent four Stryker-mounted 50-kilowatt laser prototypes to the Middle East for real-world testing that includes facing down dust particles, the service’s new vice chief, Gen. James Mingus, revealed to Breaking Defense.

“It’s a prototype, but we want to experiment in a live environment,” Mingus said Wednesday in his first interview since being sworn in as the vice-chief in January. “Is it 100 percent ready? Is it going to work perfectly? Probably not, but we’re going to learn from it.”

At a breakfast in February, Army Chief Gen. Randy George said the US Central Command (CENTCOM) region is aligned to receive new counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) as part of his new “transforming in contact” push where users, developers and testers can converge and provide feedback. Part of that initiative seemingly includes the Directed Energy Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (DE M-SHORAD) prototype that integrates a 50-kilowatt laser onto Strykers to down class 1 to 3 aerial drones and incoming rockets, artillery and mortars.

A rally against sending Western soldiers to Ukraine has taken place in Paris, a TASS correspondent reported from the site.

"We came to say that we do not agree with the escalation of the Ukraine conflict. Lawmakers should demand this issue be debated at the parliament and put to voting as enshrined in the French constitution," Florian Philippot, leader of The Patriots party, who initiated the protest, told TASS during the rally.

The demonstrators tore up EU and NATO flags and waved French tricolors instead.

"Long live free France!" Parisians chanted. "One of our goals is France’s withdrawal from NATO. This alliance is constantly pushing us toward war and looking for enemies," Philippot said, adding that the EU is following suit.

A powerful blast rocked the Russian city of St. Petersburg early on Saturday when a drone crashed into an apartment block, local media have reported. 

The explosion occurred in the northern part of the city, and the facade of a residential block was “seriously damaged.”

St. Petersburg Mayor Alexandr Beglov declined to say whether it was a drone strike.

Local residents report that before the explosion they heard the sound of an engine and saw a bright flash in the sky.

Debris fell next to one of the houses, probably from an unmanned aerial vehicle.

You have already taken a side on Israel-Palestine. Whether you know it or not. Whether you admit it or not. 

You have either consciously chosen to side with the people who are being continually massacred by Israel, or you have consciously chosen to side with Israel, or you have sided with Israel by being “neutral”, or you have sided with Israel by being indifferent.

As Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” 

The powerful oppressors are more than happy for you to be “neutral”. The ones who are already in control want as little scrutiny as possible. From their position the fewer people who are looking them and evaluating whether their actions are right or wrong, the better. Your neutrality just means they get to keep doing what they want to do.

In a recent development, Catherine Herridge, an Emmy-winning journalist renowned for her coverage of national security and intelligence, was held in civil contempt by a federal judge.

The ruling was made on Thursday due to Herridge's refusal to disclose her confidential sources in a case related to an FBI investigation.

The ruling was handed down by U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Christopher Cooper, an appointee of former President Barack Obama. Judge Cooper imposed a daily fine of $800 on Herridge, but the enforcement of this fine has been postponed to allow the journalist an opportunity to appeal the decision.
