"Your love of liberty, your respect for the laws, your habits of industry, and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness." -- George Washington (1789)

The month of June marks “Pride” month. It is a time when mostly progressive Americans hold events celebrating the LGBT movement. Most cities, especially major blue cities, hold large parades and other parties and activities.

The big problem? This is a year when the far left is starting to eat itself. Progressives have targeted Democrats across the political spectrum, calling them out and disrupting their normal activities.

Not even gay liberals can enjoy their summer festivities, thanks to this new radical movement. In one large blue city, this group of activists disrupted its pride parade. What were they protesting? You’re not going to believe this.

From The Post Millennial:
The Philadelphia Pride Parade was disrupted on Sunday when Gaza agitators prevented the Pride parade from crossing 11th Street and continuing on its way down Locust Street. Drag queens, trans folx, and Pride flag waving persons looked confused as they were unable to proceed down the parade route.

“PPD, KKK, IOS you’re all the same,” the Gaza protesters shouted…

Pride parade drummers wearing rainbow epaulets encountered Pride groups waving Pride flags streaked with red paint and emblazoned with the words “No Pride during genocide.”

Democrats out of New York just convicted Donald Trump for running for president. I mean… convicted him of 34 counts related to “falsifying” business records—despite those records being made by the very man who testified against Trump.

It’s not hard to see how Democrats concocted this trial to derail Trump’s campaign. In reality, it’s done the opposite. Trump has raised $200 million and polls show him beating Joe Biden.

There’s no telling how much this conviction (and possible future convictions) will help Trump’s campaign. Now, a Democrat who previously ran against Joe Biden is appealing to New York Gov. Hochul. And he’s saying this will be for the “good of the country.”

From Daily Caller:
Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota called on Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Friday night to pardon presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “for the good of the country.” …

“You think pardoning him is stupid? Making him a martyr over a payment to a porn star is stupid. (Election charges are totally different.)” Phillips wrote in another post. “It’s energizing his base, generating record sums of campaign cash, and will likely result in an electoral boost.”

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) called Trump supporters “domestic terrorists” during an appearance on MSNBC as she discussed the guilty verdict against Trump.

Waters also said Trump is pushing America toward a civil war.

“Let me just say this, I am worried that he is so divisive and that he is talking about retribution and about revenge and I think that is dangerous. He has even mentioned civil war saying there will be bloodshed,” Waters said.

“I will spend some time with the criminal justice system, with the justice system asking them, tell us what’s going on with the domestic terrorists? Are they Preparing a civil war against us? Should we be concerned? What is he doing with this divisive language? It is dangerous,” Maxine Waters said.

Webmaster addition: Trump actually was warning about the potential for a civil war (which I agree is a frightening possibility) and as usual for Democrats, they lie! Remind me again, just who was burning up the cities after Hillary's 2016 loss?

mportant to understand is that there is not one single new or original idea in Klaus Schwab’s so-called Great Reset agenda for the world. Nor is his Fourth Industrial Revolution agenda his or his claim to having invented the notion of Stakeholder Capitalism a product of Schwab.

Klaus Schwab is little more than a slick PR agent for a global technocratic agenda, a corporatist unity of corporate power with government, including the UN, an agenda whose origins go back to the beginning of the 1970s, and even earlier.  The Davos Great reset is merely an updated blueprint for a global dystopian dictatorship under UN control that has been decades in development. The key actors were David Rockefeller and his protégé, Maurice Strong.

In the beginning of the 1970s, there was arguably no one person more influential in world politics than the late David Rockefeller, then largely known as chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank.

Creating the new paradigm

At the end of the 1960s and into the early 1970s, the international circles directly tied to David Rockefeller launched a dazzling array of elite organizations and think tanks. These included

The Club of Rome;

the 1001: A Nature Trust, tied to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF);

the Stockholm United Nations Earth Day conference;

the MIT-authored study, Limits to Growth;

and David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission.

The West has misinterpreted Russia's openness to dialogue on Ukraine as a sign of weakness and is now pushing the world to the edge of a disastrous all-out nuclear exchange, former US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter told Sputnik.

US President Joe Biden has authorized Ukraine to hit targets inside Russia with US-made weapons, bringing the conflict to a new level. White House officials claim that Washington's new policy pertains only to what they call as "acts of self-defense" by the Ukrainian military that is continuing to retreat.

Previously, other NATO member states, including the UK, France and Sweden, gave a nod to the Zelensky regime to use their weapons systems to attack Russia.

The Kiev regime and its Western allies believe they can gain an advantage over Russia by confining its special military operation to Ukrainian territory, ex-US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter told Sputnik. This situation allows Ukraine to train its troops in neighboring NATO states and receive arms and other equipment from the alliance's hubs, not making them Russia's legitimate targets.

However, things could drastically change once NATO-grade missiles start flying into Russia's territory with the approval of Western countries, according to the military expert.

As Moscow pursues restraint in its military operation in Ukraine an extremist Kiev regime is resorting to attacks against noncombatants – an inconvenient reality ignored by Western media.

“NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Friday shrugged off warnings from Russian President Vladimir Putin against NATO countries allowing Ukraine to strike Russian territory with Western weapons,” reported the website Antiwar.com Monday.

“Stoltenberg’s comments came after the US and several other NATO countries gave Ukraine the greenlight to strike Russian territory near [Kharkov],” according to the online outlet. “The step marks a significant escalation in the proxy war and could provoke a major response from Russia despite Stoltenberg downplaying the risks.”

The provocation has prompted President Vladimir Putin to warn of “serious consequences” for NATO countries that permit their armaments to be used to strike within Russia. Kiev has increasingly resorted to terrorist attacks in residential areas and against Russian civilians as the chances of Ukrainian victory on the battlefield grow ever more remote. Shelling of a town in Russia’s Belgorod region over the weekend left six people injured, with a local official tragically dying as a result of detonation of ammunition during the attack.

The newly released footage showed a combat operation of the scouts and infantry of the Northern group of forces in the Kharkiv region. The video shows Russian servicemen crossing the border and launching attacks on Ukrainian military positions in the area.

As a result of the successful operation, Russian forces captured trophies and took at least one Ukrainian serviceman prisoner. The positions were reportedly held by servicemen of the special Bratstvo (Brotherhood) battalion of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. The exact date of the operation was not revealed.

Earlier, the servicemen of the same elite unit surrendered to the Russian military in the same Kharkiv region. For example, you may find the testimonies of Netrevoshko Demid Andreevich who was in service in the Main Intelligence Directorate, interrogated in Russian captivity:

Well, he is lucky, he will have now humane treatment, good medical care and good rest in Russian captivity. The only question will be what is his REAL background... in French Army.

The US State Department does not comment on the fact that former UN inspector for monitoring the elimination of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction Scott Ritter, who previously served in intelligence in the US Marine Corps, was removed from the flight from New York to Istanbul.

"We cannot comment on the status of the passport of a private U.S. citizen," a State Department spokesperson told TASS.

Ritter previously told TASS that he planned to fly to Russia through Turkey and was supposed to fly out of John F. Kennedy International Airport. Ritter noted that he was not given a reason why the American authorities did not let him leave the country, saying only that this was being done by the order from the State Department.

Former US Marine Corps Intelligence Officer and UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter has told TASS that he was not let board a flight from New York to Istanbul, a stopover on his way to Russia to take part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

"I was taken off flight from New York to Istanbul. They took my passport and taken my bags off the flight," he said.

He also said that no explanations were given to him. The police, in his words, said only that it was done at the order from the Department of State.

According to Ritter, another US expert, former judge and now Judging Freedom podcast host Andrew Napolitano, will not go to Russia either. However, "he cancelled his trip for completely different reasons," he added.

Globalist elites representing the rich and powerful in politics, banking, big tech, media, industry, and academia converged in Madrid, Spain, on May 30-June 2 to discuss the launching of World War III and policies meant to advance the global control grid and one-world system.

While most of the attention this year was on the WHO World Health Assembly in Geneva, the Bilderbergs met secretly in Madrid for their 70th annual conference. (Go to my Substack to read about the shocking turn of events on June 1 at the WHO World Health Assemby)

Topics of discussion at the shadowy Bilderberg conference included artificial intelligence, “climate change,” the “future of warfare” and “changing faces of biology.”

 

The full list of announced topics discussed at the annual globalist conference were as follows.

  • State of AI
  • AI Safety
  • Changing Faces of Biology
  • Climate
  • Future of Warfare 
  • Geopolitical Landscape 
  • Europe’s Economic Challenges
  • US Economic Challenges
  • US Political Landscape
  • Ukraine and the World
  • Middle East
  • China
  • Russia

Besides AI, transhumanist issues surrounding the “changing faces of biology,” and economic issues, notice that most of the remaining topics are related to the growing global conflicts that appear headed toward open warfare being conducted between nuclear-armed superpowers in multiple theaters — U.S./NATO against the Russians in Ukraine, war in the Middle East, and war the Far East involving China-Taiwan and potentially on the Korean peninsula.

The issue of “AI safety” likely had to do with the globalists’ plan to remove anonymity from the Internet and make all online parties take on a digital ID, thus making it easier to censor and punish online voices that disagree with the prevailing globalist narratives.

Founded in 1954 with a meeting hosted by Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands in the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Dutch village of Oosterbeek, the annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group is believed to be a driving force behind major globalist projects and initiatives.

Unlike similar institutions such as the World Economic Forum, the Bilderbergs meet strictly behind closed doors with participants sworn to secrecy according to the so-called Chatham House Rule. This rule prohibits the disclosure of the identity of those behind any idea mentioned during the meeting.

The shroud of secrecy surrounding the meeting of Bilderberg globalists has led to many theories regarding the influence the conference may exert on the policy of various nations and corporations.

Breitbart reports that a 2023 study from Lukas Kantor of Prague’s Charles University found that at least 133 politicians were elevated to positions of power after attending a Bilderberg meeting, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, ex-German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and current French President Emmanuel Macron.

According to Kantor, at least 42 participants became either prime ministers, presidents, or the top officials of international organizations such as the European Union, NATO or the International Monetary Fund

An interesting and somewhat disturbing scene played out in the White House press briefing room last week when national security spokesman John Kirby was asked about alleged Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Criticisms of US policy from the press pool have grown more intense as Israel's Rafah operation presses forward.

Kirby essentially threw the US military under the bus by suggesting American troops have done worse things than what Israel's military is doing in Gaza. Kirby was initially asked by a reporter what the consequences would be "if there were an American strike on a legitimate terrorist target that ended resulting with 45 civilian deaths and some 200 others injured." Watch the exchange play out:

Kirby then replied, "I can't answer a hypothetical like that."

"But we have conducted airstrikes in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, where tragically we caused civilian casualties," he continued.

"We did the same thing. We owned up to it. We investigated it. And we tried to make changes... We tried to learn from it to make changes so that those set of mistakes wouldn't happen again," Kirby continued, in what was at best a deeply awkward defense of Israel.

A lot of online observers highlighted that in trying to defend a foreign country and make it look good amid mounting international criticism, he took a swipe at his own American armed forces.

Authored by Tuomas Malinen via GnSEconomics.com,

 

These are the lines none of us would have ever wanted to write, but we have to. The current situation in and around the war in Ukraine has opened a path, which could lead to a nuclear confrontation.

Ukraine has struck another early-warning (over-the-horizon) radar, this time in Orenburg region, near Orsk, some 1500 km from Ukraine. This radar did not even look at the direction of Ukraine, which makes the strike an act of madness, or something sinister.

These strikes to the Russian early-warning system can serve only two aims:

  1. Ukrainian leadership is desperately trying to fully commit NATO to the war in Ukraine, or
  2. Strikes are a preparation for nuclear strikes to Russia by the U.S.

Needless to say that the latter is extremely speculative. However, it is one of the two motives that can be established for the strikes. Alas, we have to acknowledge its existence. We have gone through the former in our previous warning.

What is more is that, according to Kremlin, the U.S., the U.K. and France would have deployed ground-based intermediate and short-range missile system to Ukraine. These systems were previously banned by the INF (Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces) Treaty from which President Trump withdraw the U.S. in February 2019, citing Russian non-compliance and missiles developed by China.

These missile systems can be used to strike deep into Russia. The risk is that, if Ukraine would continue to target the early-warning system of Russia, at some point Kremlin would simply be forced to act, because it would seriously undermine their nuclear deterrence.

Nuclear deterrence operates on three dimensions: time, distance and altitude, in addition to the actual arsenal of nuclear weapons. Time and distance are crucial for the response (retaliation, effectively) and altitude where missiles fly, is crucial for anti-missile and other defense systems to operate. Over-the-horizon radars are crucial for all three dimensions, as early warnings give authorities time, distance and altitude to react and enact defensive measures. If they are taken out, or their ability to detect an approaching intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) seriously hindered, modern nuclear deterrence simply fails. This is the reason, why Kremlin would be forced to react if the early-warning system of Russia would become compromised by a foreign party (Ukraine/NATO). This applies also to the U.S. and all other nuclear powers. Everybody would eventually be forced to react under such a threat.

There are naturally other options than just a nuclear strike for Kremlin, but they all would need to be major, which would enflame the conflict further. If Kremlin would choose to enact a nuclear strike, it would probably use a tactical nuke, which is smaller than a strategical nuke (e.g., an ICBM), and hit a military target, like an airbase.

This is why we (with an extremely heavy heart) issue a warning of a possible nuclear strike in Europe. This warning is effective for the time being.

We don’t present any estimated likelihood for it, at this point at least, as it would be macabre. However we note that, while the likelihood is probably not very high at the moment, if strikes to Russian early-warning system continue, it will grow rapidly.

While still unlikely, we urge you to start to prepare for the unthinkable.

Hollywood star George Clooney can prove his good intentions by having his foundation investigate an alleged massacre in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said.

Clooney has disavowed comments made by a legal director at his foundation, about working to get Russian journalists arrested in the West. The Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ) would never go after journalists and has “a long track record of protecting” them, the actor insisted.

“We understood both Clooney and his organization very well,” Zakharova replied in a Telegram post, suggesting she was not convinced by the statement. “Therefore, we would like to invite them to engage in real assistance to journalists and obtain a list of the townspeople who ‘died’ in Bucha.”

So what can we, the regular folks, make of this?  Why the sudden gigantic volatility in the markets?

A number of people with whom I spoke this afternoon all agreed:  The system is coming apart at the seams.  There is so much corruption, so much dirty dealing, so much cooking of the books, so many outright phony reporting of financial numbers, it is hard to hide anymore.

Plus, several of them said, the US money supply is contracting.  It has only done that before and then the Great Depression followed.   

So it seems to many people - but certainly not all - that the system is now coming apart.

Think about this for a moment:  If the premier Stock Exchange in the world, closes with everything fine on Friday, then opens with inexplicable catastrophic volatility on Monday morning, how trustworthy is the system anymore?

Video below shows the capture of a French military by the Russian Army in the area of the village of Liptsy (Kharkov region), where active hostilities between the Russian Armed Forces and the AFU are now taking place.

This soldier was not "instructing" Ukrainian troops, he was engaged in an active fire-fight with Russian troops - and got captured.

Of course, we will likely hear how this soldier resigned from the French Army and became a mercenary with some unknown, never-heard-of Private Military Organization . . . but the evidence is irrefutable: French military is in fire fights inside Ukraine, against Russia.  France is waging war against Russia in Ukraine.

Floating Russian Oil Base Shifts To New Location In Mediterranean Sea

by Tyler Durden
 

In May, the Greek Navy began conducting war drills in the Laconian Gulf, about 110 miles southwest of Athens, to disrupt a 'floating oil base' used by Russian tankers for ship-to-ship transfers of crude oil and related products. Now, these tankers have migrated STS transfers to another part of the Mediterranean Sea. 

Bloomberg reports tankers hauling Russia's Urals are conducting STS transfers near the city of Nador at the eastern end of Morocco's coast on the Mediterranean. This comes after the Greek Navy forced tankers out of the Laconian Gulf last month: 

Shipping data via Bloomberg shows several tankers are conducting STS transfers off Morocco.

The Rolin, a Very Large Crude Carrier, or VLCC, is receiving Urals crude from a smaller tanker Serendi off the Moroccan city, the data show. It's is the first time that the so-called ship-to-ship transfer of the grade has taken place there.

The Serendi is an Aframax-class ship. Two others - the Ocean AMZ and Sea Fidelity - have also arrived. All three loaded about 730,000 barrels of Urals from Russia's Baltic sea port of Primorsk last month. -BBG

BBG: Tankers with Russian Urals crude conduct ship-to-ship transfer off Morocco

STS Russian transfers mostly end up thousands of miles away in Asia. However, according to the Black Sea Group, some of it ended up at European ports because of Brussels' poor sanction management: 

"68% of the oil was brought to the Laconian Gulf in Greece for transshipment, while the rest was directly exported to the EU ports amid poor sanctions management," researcher Bohdan Ben wrote in a note.

The Lebanese militia group Hezbollah has destroyed an air defence radar from an Israeli Air Force Iron Dome system in the disputed Golan Heights in a drone strike on June 2, scoring a direct hit and causing multiple casualties among nearby personnel. The two opposing sides have engaged in a near continuous series of skirmishes since October 2023, with Hezbollah having initiated hostilities to stretch Israeli forces during their operations against Palestinian militia groups across their southern border in the Gaza Strip. Hezbollah units have targeted Iron Dome systems on multiple occasions in the past, and in the final week of January employed two single use ‘kamikaze’ drones to neutralise one such system near the Israeli settlement of Kfar Blum. Preceding this Hezbollah units were reported on December 18 to have hit two Iron Dome surface to air missile batteries, which was thought to have been achieved with some kind of artillery. Neutralising Iron Dome systems can serve as a force multiplier for strikes on Israeli targets, as these systems are optimised for defence against short range low altitude projectiles such as drones and rocket artillery which are primary means used by Hezbollah to engage Israeli targets. Supplies of components and rockets for the Iron Dome system have become increasingly scarce as they are relied on to intercept attacks from both Gaza and Southern Lebanon.

By Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com, the largest private database of public spending.

During the pandemic, the American people started to feel that Big Government was very cozy with Big Pharma. Now we know just how close they were.

New data from the National Institutes of Health reveals the agency and its scientists collected $710 million in royalties during the pandemic, from late 2021 through 2023. These are payments made by private companies, like pharmaceuticals, to license medical innovations from government scientists.

Almost all that cash — $690 million — went to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), the subagency led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, and 260 of its scientists.

Information about this vast private royalty complex is tightly held by NIH. My organization, OpenTheBooks.com, was forced to sue to uncover the royalties paid from September 2009 to October 2021, which amounted to $325 million over 56,000 transactions.

We had to sue a second time, with Judicial Watch as our counsel, to pry open this new release.

Payments skyrocketed during the pandemic era: those years saw more than double the amount of cash flow to NIH from the private sector, compared to the prior twelve combined. All told, it’s $1.036 billion.

It’s unclear if any of the Covid vaccine royalties from Pfizer and Moderna, the latter of which settled with NIH by agreeing to pay $400 million, is even included in these new numbers. NIH isn’t saying.

The American people have one last crack at getting some candor from Fauci, the face of our COVID response, when he testifies Monday before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.

There’s plenty to answer for.

He’s spent years scoffing at questions about potential conflicts of interest between COVID policymakers, who relentlessly pushed vaccines, and recipients of private royalties.

Now he’ll also need to account for bombshell emails sent by one of his deputies, which described in-house strategies to circumvent the federal Freedom of Information Act.

Fauci won’t be able to misspell words to evade scrutiny or have folks physically courier messages — just two of the FOIA-avoiding actions described by Dr. David Morens, a key Fauci deputy.

Instead, cameras from around the world will be trained on Fauci and he’ll be answering for information he gave in a sworn deposition earlier this year.

It’s a chance to either come clean or further cement the public’s perception of him and the NIH as secretive and self-interested.

Beyond this small cabal of scientists covering up discussions of the virus’ origin, NIH has consistently treated FOIA requests like viral attacks of their own. No wonder, then, that we’re plaintiffs in six ongoing FOIA cases.

Characteristically, NIH is still redacting pieces of the data that would help us more easily connect therapeutics with their government-paid inventors. For example, they refuse to show us the amount of royalties paid to each individual scientist. So we still can’t entirely follow the money.

In the meantime, Sen. Rand Paul has sponsored the Royalty Transparency Act, which sailed unanimously through the committee process and deserves a floor vote immediately.

There’s plenty Fauci could do in the meantime, too. He could indicate he supports bills like Paul’s. He could call on NIH and CDC to voluntarily “unmask” the royalty payments. Then we could see whether their decisions have advanced the general welfare or their own.

Fauci could also support fixes to the FOIA law that create real consequences for those who purposely violate it.

At minimum, he must apologize for the utter contempt for FOIA, and the transparency war waged by his colleagues that’s now been revealed in private communication

Kevin O'Leary Urges Voters To "Protect The Brand Of America" 

 

O'Leary Ventures chairman and "Shark Tank" star Kevin O'Leary appeared on Fox News' "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday, criticizing radical leftist politicians in New York for their efforts to jail former President Trump. He stated that this move by Democrats is having a "devastating impact on the American brand."

"So I was over in London, fundraising. As you know, I'm trying to buy TikTok. I'm just trying to get my ducks in order for this deal, which will probably happen in January. And it was at the same time the porn star stuff was coming out. And, you know, talking about salacious sex and condoms and all this stuff - no one understood what the heck this had to do with campaign financing. 

"But why was it happening? And it really dominated the conversations at institutional meetings... With folks asking me: What is this? Is that really America? Because we don't - G20 countries, G7 countries. You usually do not do this to former leadership because you protect the sovereign brand. The mother egg of the United States of America, The White House - regardless of who's in it." 

O'Leary continued:

"But you look at any G7 country. They protect the sovereign brand. We have somehow stopped doing that. And, look, I'm not saying, you know, I don't want to get partisan about it. All I'm saying is we should protect the brand of America. If you're a Democrat or Republican - what are you doing to yourself? 

O'Leary describes the warpath Democrats have chosen against Trump. These radicals understand very clearly they can't beat him in fair elections, so they must resort to tactics used in political warfare in banana republic states by attempting to imprison political enemies through the weaponization of the judicial system. This move is nation-wrecking and nukes the American brand as it becomes bad for business under economic and political uncertainties. Earlier this year, O'Leary blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James over the potential seizure of Trump's assets. 

Even CNN senior legal analyst, Elie Honig, admitted that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg (who reduced 60% of felonies to misdemeanors in 2023, yet elevated Trump's misdemeanors to a felony), wrote in NY Mag: "Here, prosecutors got their man, for now at least – but they also contorted the law in an unprecedented manner in their quest to snare their prey."

"The charges against Trump are obscure, and nearly entirely unprecedented. In fact, no state prosecutor — in New York, or Wyoming, or anywhere — has ever charged federal election laws as a direct or predicate state crime, against anyone, for anything. None. Ever. Even putting aside the specifics of election law, the Manhattan DA itself almost never brings any case in which falsification of business records is the only charge." -Elie Honig
