"The first panacea of a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permeant ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists." -- Ernest Hemingway
The Russian Embassy in Washington on Tuesday condemned the US reaction to the video believed to be showing a massacre of Russian prisoners of war by the Ukrainian military, saying that the US authorities enable a growing sense of impunity of neo-Nazis in Ukraine.
Earlier in the day, US Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice Beth Van Schaack said that the US was monitoring reports of the shooting of Russian prisoners of war in Donbass. She urged all parties to respect international law.
“We noted the statements of Ambassador-at-Large on International Criminal Justice Beth van Shack on the murder of captured Russian military personnel by Ukrainian neo-Nazis. The official refused to directly condemn the massacre of our unarmed soldiers, despite the confirmation of the authenticity of the relevant video materials by American journalists, who did not hush up the tragedy,” the Russian embassy said in a statement.
The US is nurturing an increased sense of permissiveness and impunity of neo-Nazi sympathizers in Ukraine by turning a blind eye to the violence of that kind.
“We have repeatedly stated that by supplying weapons to Kiev, by teaching criminals and mercenaries the art of war, by transferring intelligence the United States are becoming a side of the conflict. Russian-U.S. relations are thusly driven into a dead end,” the statement read.
As the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, 31 years ago, it occurred to me that no one 50 years old and younger will realize the importance of the above news report. A 50 year old today would only have been 19 in 1991 and would have no memory of the decades of what was called the Soviet communist tyranny that locked dissidents in insane asylums. And here today in liberal Canada we have a college of physicians and surgeons recommending the same policy in a liberal democracy that was practiced in a totalitarian state!
Moreover, the Canadian policy is even more totalitarian than the Soviet one. In the Soviet Union it was only political dissidents who wouldn’t shut up who were confined. In Canada it is establishment medical doctors who want to confine people who are aware that the Covid “vaccine” does not protect, does not prevent transmission, and has a very high rate of adverse reactions associated with it, including serious health impairment and death. The failures and consequences of the mNRA “vaccines” are well established and widely acknowledged. Yet those who elect to avoid the pointless risk are recommended for incarceration in mental institutions.
There is no doubt whatsoever about this. Hydroxychloroquine is also an effective treatment in the early stages of Covid infection.
Fauci, NIH, CDC, and the Big Pharma dependent medical establishment lied through their teeth, claiming falsely that only toxic doses of Ivermectin could combat Covid virus. Even today, despite the evidence of clinical practice as well as experiments, NIH and CDC pretend that “more study is needed.” Medical researchers on Big Pharma’s payroll continue to try to concoct flawed “studies” to discredit Ivermectin.
Both NIH and CDC are pretend “public health agencies” connected to patents and profits with Big Pharma. Their incentive is to protect Big Pharma profits, not the public’s health. It was necessary to block Ivermectin’s use, because the presence of a cure would have prevented the emergency use authorization of what has turned out to be a highly dangerous and often deadly experimental, unapproved Covid “vaccine.” The bottom line is that people had to die in order that Big Pharma and its executives could make billions of dollars in profits and performance bonuses.
NASA's uncrewed Artemis I Orion spacecraft has completed its powered flyby of the Moon and is now headed into a fuel-saving distant retrograde orbit (DRO) for the next few weeks before returning to Earth.
Orion's fuel-burned propulsion by the moon happened about 81 miles above the surface at 6:57am CST on Monday. NASA has now tested all three thruster types in the following order: the large orbital maneuvering system engine, the small reaction control system thrusters, and the medium-sized auxiliary engines.
A cyber extortion gang is using phishing emails, social engineering and network of phony call centers to scam victims out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by tricking them into allowing remote access to their PC, then stealing data threatening to leak it if a ransom isn't paid.
A top-down approach to forcibly create a common identity has never worked, and it never will.
Despite the spasmodic efforts of the leftist media dictatorship, its dominance has up until now failed to force the public opinion of European countries into believing the old continent is united. Few in the West dare to contradict this, while the opinions of the East are ignored.
This pretentious outlook — detached from the reality of the world — is presented to Europeans on a daily basis, but it instead serves as clear proof that those who are pushing the cause the most aggessively do not themselves believe in the thesis they claim is their own. What did Ursula von der Leyen say about Italy? If Italy elects the wrong parties during parliamentary elections, the EU “has tools” to coerce them, as in the case of Poland and Hungary.
This is what European unity looks like per the left-liberal authoritarian concept. We have heard many and varied answers to the question of why, but very few have tackled the question regarding the lack of European identity. Brussels, the left-liberal media, and the NGO networks that dictate EU policy are not the only ones who have tried and failed to forge a common European identity.
Notably, Tito tried to forge a unified southern Slavic nation-state out of the diverse Yugoslavia, and his one-party dictatorship did its best to stifle dissent. The party leader, born a Croatian-Slovenian, even divorced his Serbian wife when she warned him that greater autonomy for the member republics — which Tito believed would quell the nationalist fervor that was smoldering everywhere — would tear Yugoslavia apart. The Serbian woman was right because Tito’s measures had inflamed rather than quelled nationalist sentiment.
Saturday, November 19, 2022, was according to Jewish tradition Shabat Chayei Sarah – the Shabbos, or Saturday commemorating the death and burial of the biblical matriarch Sarah. In the biblical story, her husband Abraham purchased her burial plot in the ancient city of Al-Khalil. According to Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro, the “commemoration” events that Al-Khalil has been subjected to over the last few decades have nothing to do with Jewish tradition, only, “Zionist Embellishments.”
Al-Khalil, or Hebron in Hebrew, is the largest city in the West Bank, with close to a quarter of a million residents. The Old City part of Al-Khalil, also known as H-2, is a beautiful place, with narrow alleyways and architecture that bears witness to the centuries of grandeur it enjoys, the fourth-holiest city in Islamic tradition. Around 25,000 Palestinians and close to 800 Jewish settlers live in the old city. The settlers are vile, racist and violent to a point where 800 of them are able to terrorize thousands of their Palestinian neighbors.
Besides that, there is a massive military presence in the Old City of Al-Khalil. This military presence includes at least one full combat brigade which monitors the more than five hundred checkpoints and movement barriers that exist within one square kilometer or approximately 0.4 square miles of the city. The military is there to assist the settlers, not protect the Palestinian civilians who they are constantly terrorizing.
Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York had been conducting a probe into defunct cryptocurrency platform FTX months before the company led by disgraced chief executive Sam Bankman-Fried filed for bankruptcy.
The 22-year-old suspect who allegedly killed five and wounded 17 others after opening fire inside a gay nightclub in Colorado just before midnight Saturday is facing charges on ten counts, including five counts of bias-motivated crimes.
Twitter reinstated the personal account for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Monday, reversing the ban put in place in January over Greene violating the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy.
Using her official congressional account, which was not banned by the platform, Greene urged her followers to head to her newly reinstated “unfiltered” personal account.
“I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’ My account is back,” she tweeted. “Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”
More than two years after the New York Post broke the news of crack addict-turned-first son Hunter Biden’s laptop, CBS News reported that the laptop is authentic — just days after the second election day in which it might have made a difference.
SMART-TD, one of the largest railroad labor unions, voted down a tentative agreement with rail management, raising the likelihood of a strike in December. The BLET, the other largest union, voted to ratify the labor deal but said it will honor the picket line.
“It’s now back to the bargaining table for our operating craft members,” said Jeremy Ferguson, president of the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers-Transportation Division. “This can all be settled through negotiations and without a strike. A settlement would be in the best interests of the workers, the railroads, shippers and the American people.”
“We stood shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in SMART-TD and others in rail labor throughout this process and we will continue to stand in solidarity with them as we approach the finish line in this round of negotiations,” said Dennis Pierce, president of BLET, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen.
One week ago, the Ukrainian government may have deliberately attacked neighbor Poland in an attempt to draw the NATO alliance into its war with Russia. The incident involved a missile that hit a grain processing site inside Poland and killed two farmers. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky immediately blamed Russia for the incident even though he surely must have known that the missile had been fired from Ukraine, meaning that he may have been using a so-called “false flag” to create a false narrative of what had occurred. He also immediately called upon NATO to intervene, citing Article 5 of the NATO treaty which requires all members of the alliance to come to the aid of any individual member that is attacked. An attack on one is an attack on all. Poland is a NATO member and it currently hosts a permanent US military base.
The US mainstream media, most particularly the Associated Press and NBC News, immediately repeated the tale being told by Zelensky, but the “blame the Russians” narrative began to unravel. The remains of the missile revealed that it was of a type used for air defense that is in the Ukrainian arsenal, but not currently used by the Russians, and both Moscow and Washington surely had access to satellite imagery that would demonstrate the actual flight path of the missile that struck Poland.
The purpose of this essay is threefold: (1) to bring to the attention of readers the existence of a long-standing conspiracy about the identification of “The Richest Man in the World”, (2) to dismiss from contention the current list of candidates, and (3) to document that a small number of Jewish banking families operating out of the City of London have for generations held these wealth records with fortunes that are orders of magnitude above anything we might have imagined. I will address these points in reverse order, and deal with the current crop of wunderkind at the end.
I do not profess to be able to irrefutably document all the assertions made in this essay, nor to definitively substantiate all the inferences made. The topic is such that too much of the necessary legal evidence is irretrievably hidden from public view and accessibility, and we must in many cases rely on logic and circumstantial evidence to support our assertions and inferences. While the proofs are not as complete as one would desire, this level of evidentiary support is often sufficient, especially when our cases follow an established pattern and we have such reasoning and evidence in bulk. The descriptions and evidence in this essay will serve at least to provide a reasonable basis for understanding and to “draw attention to some of the great forces which have been molding our world”. The figures presented in this essay are not meant as precise calculations, but to impress upon readers the magnitude of the numbers and amounts with which we are dealing.
Some counties within Illinois are interested in branching off and becoming a state of their own.
A growing number of southern Illinois counties have voted to leave the state itself and form their state. The resolutions passed by these counties are non-binding, and they don't have the force of law. However, they do show a growing displeasure with the total influence that Cook County (the home county of Chicago) has over the entire state.
There is a lot of frustration throughout southern Illinois to look at possible alternatives to their forced marriage with Chicago. Twenty-seven counties in total have voted to leave the state. In many counties, the percentage of people voting in favor of leaving the state exceeds 75%.
The Anti-Defamation League, the leading pro-Israel lobbying group in America, ordered a global advertiser boycott of Elon Musk's Twitter on Friday for not doing enough to censor Kanye "Ye" West and other critics of their power.
In two volatile spots in the occupied West Bank, Israel has installed robotic weapons that can fire tear gas, stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets at Palestinian protesters.
The weapons, perched over a crowded Palestinian refugee camp and in a flashpoint West Bank city, use artificial intelligence to track targets. Israel says the technology saves lives — both Israeli and Palestinian. But critics see another step toward a dystopian reality in which Israel fine-tunes its open-ended occupation of the Palestinians while keeping its soldiers out of harm’s way.
The new weapon comes at a time of heightened tensions in the occupied West Bank, where unrest has risen sharply during what has been the deadliest year since 2006. The victory by former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard-line alliance, which includes an extreme right-wing party with close ties to the settler movement, has raised concerns of more violence.
The GOP Establishment has fingered a culprit for the disappointing midterm results: Donald Trump. GOP leaders and Conservatism Inc. pundits claim the American people want something different. They insist Trump’s candidates were sure losers and the party should no longer support such politicians. Many think this argument is just about Trump the man, but it’s not. The GOP Ruling Class wants to rid the party of Trumpism and resurrect its Business First program. Instead of Trumpism without Trump, the elites want a GOP without Trumpism.
The Wall Street Journal made this clear in an editorial the day after the election. The newspaper didn’t just blame Trump—it blamed the candidates he backed. “What will Democrats do when Donald Trump isn’t around to lose elections?” the editorial board asked:
We have to wonder because on Tuesday Democrats succeeded again in making the former President a central campaign issue, and Mr. Trump helped them do it.
Trumpy Republican candidates failed at the ballot box in states that were clearly winnable. This can’t be what Mr. Trump was envisioning ahead of his “very big announcement” next week. Yet maybe the defeats are what the party needs to hear before 2024.
Vladimir Putin’s new strategy in the war he launched on Ukraine in February is to conscript the coming winter of 2022-23 as an ally of his failing army.
For weeks, there have been reports of Russian air, missile and drone strikes on power plants in every major Ukrainian city.
The false report that a Russian-fired rocket had landed in Poland, killing two civilians, came on a day when 100 Russian bombs, rockets, missiles and drones hit ”infrastructure” targets across Ukraine.
It was the heaviest Russian barrage to date in the nine-month war.
Putin’s goal: As the Ukrainian army battles the Russian army in the Donbas and Kherson, the power grid upon which the Ukrainian nation and people depend is to be systematically attacked, shut down, destroyed.
At least two counties in Arizona have confirmed that their certification of the 2022 election will be delayed as the state’s attorney general’s office wrote a letter claiming there’s evidence of “statutory violations” that occurred in Maricopa County on Election Day.
