The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted that official data shows that deaths in children aged 1-14 have skyrocketed since 2021.

The data shows a massive spike in child deaths after the public rollout of Covid mRNA injections for kids in 2021.

Death rates among children ages 1-4 jumped 12% between 2021 and 2022, and for kids 5-14 the rate increased by 7% over the same period, according to data released this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

President Biden’s wave of illegal immigrants is upending the usual demographics of immigration and sending education levels plummeting, according to a report Thursday that raised big questions about the nation’s ability to absorb the newcomers.

The U.S. now has 13.7 million illegal immigrants and 51.4 million immigrants overall — an increase of 6.4 million in three years since Mr. Biden took office, the Center for Immigration Studies reported. That averages 172,000 new immigrants each month, or roughly four times the rate in the Trump years and nearly three times the rate in the Obama years.

Most of the new arrivals are from Latin America, and 3.7 million of the net new arrivals came illegally. Some 44% have no education beyond high school, and a significant number haven’t even completed high school.

A report from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) outlines how the government agency has been encouraging governments, tech platforms, establishment media outlets and advertisers to work together to censor huge swaths of the Internet. The 97-page “disinformation primer,” obtained by conservative firm America First Legal under the Freedom of Information Act, purports to be fighting fake news. However, much of the organization’s focus appears to be on preventing individuals from finding information online that challenges official narratives and leads to increased questioning of the system more generally.

The document calls for regulating video games and online message boards, steering individuals away from alternative media and back towards more elite-friendly sites, and for governments to work with advertisers to cripple organizations that refuse to toe official lines financially. Furthermore, it highlights government-backed fact-checking groups like Bellingcat, Graphika, and the Atlantic Council as leaders in the fight against disinformation, despite the fact that those groups have close connections to the national security state, which is an overwhelming conflict of interest.

The news that a government agency is promoting such a program is worrying enough. However, we shall also see how USAID itself has promoted fake news to push for regime change abroad.

Myth-busting documentary finally breaks the stranglehold of Israel and its western media acolytes over the story of what happened on 7 October

For weeks, as Gaza was battered with bombs and the body count in the tiny enclave rose inexorably, western publics had little choice but to rely on Israel’s word for what happened on 7 October. Some 1,150 Israelis were killed during an unprecedented attack on Israeli communities and military posts next to Gaza.

Beheaded babies, a pregnant woman with her womb cut open and the foetus stabbed, children put in ovens, hundreds of people burned alive, mutilation of corpses, a systematic campaign of indescribably savage rapes and acts of necrophilia.

Western politicians and media lapped it up, repeating the allegations uncritically while ignoring Israel’s genocidal rhetoric and increasingly genocidal military operations these claims supported.

Gilbert Doctorow Now Confirms with his own analysis my prediction that Putin’s toleration of provocations is spinning the Ukraine conflict out of control.

Doctorow is a careful analyst never overstating a situation. In this interview he says that the FSB statement implicating the US and UK governments in the Crocus attack had to have been approved by Putin and that implicating the US and UK in the Crocus attack has brought us to the level of danger of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Doctorow reports that Russian television has undergone a massive change following the Crocus attack. Commentators are unwilling to accept any longer Putin’s nonresponse to attacks on Russians. Television talk is suddenly very violent with talk of flattening Kharkiv and Kiev and bringing a quick end to the conflict that has been permitted to endure for far too long.

It seems that a fatal red line has been crossed.

Here is Gilbert Doctorow’s follow-up to his interview about which I reported yesterday. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2024/03/27/washington-crossed-a-fatal-red-line-with-the-crocus-attack/

Doctorow is a careful analyst who does not overstate the seriousness of situations. The Crocus attack could be a turning point in Putin’s attitude toward the US. Putin has been low-key in Russia’s response to Washington’s provocations so as not to inflame the situation. Putin’s policy has been to wait for the West to come to its senses and to accept reality. I have emphasized that this is a mistake as Putin’s toleration of provocations results in more provocations of increasing severity. With 319 dead and wounded Russian civilian casualties in a suburb of Moscow, it appears that the provocations have crossed a red line. The head of the Federal Security Service was given a green light to identify to the Russian media Washington as the suspect. As Putin has publicly declared that all responsible will be punished, I agree that Doctorow’s characterization of the situation is akin to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

It is possible that Putin will rethink the situation and use the Crocus attack to meet political and media demands that this time he do something. He can limit the blame to Ukraine and use the attack to use the level of force he should have used two years ago to level Ukraine and end the conflict.

Documents secured by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life organization, through a public records request has found that the University of California, San Diego has been purchasing the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood.

The “Biological Transfer Agreement” uncovered by the CMP included an arrangement for the transfer of “proprietary materials” from Planned Parenthood San Diego, including “fetal and placental tissue.”

“This new evidence shows Planned Parenthood sells late-term aborted baby body parts in violation of federal law, for far more money than has ever been discussed before,” said David Daleiden, founder of the CMP. (Related: Planned Parenthood accused of trafficking minors to carry out more abortions.)

Eyewitness testimonies suggest a disturbing trend of illegal Israeli settlers disguising themselves as soldiers to attack Palestinians in rural areas of the West Bank.

On the afternoon of 19 March, 40-year-old farmer Fakher Bani Jaber from Khirbat al-Tawil, a small village in the northern occupied West Bank, was shot at point blank range by what appeared to be four soldiers. Local witnesses said the assailants were actually Israeli settlers.

While settler violence in the West Bank is not new, violence has exploded since 7 October, with Fakher Bani Jaber being the 24th Palestinian killed by Israeli settlers since then, according to a report by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, The New Arab's Arabic-language sister edition.

In blatant violation of international law, particularly international humanitarian law, the Israeli army has executed 13 children by direct shooting in Al-Shifa Medical Complex and its Gaza City environs. This is a war crime and a crime against humanity, and is part of the genocide that the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip having been experiencing for the past six months.

For over a week now, the Israeli army has been conducting systematic and horrifying military operations inside and around Al-Shifa Medical Complex. These crimes include extrajudicial executions and deliberate killings of Palestinian civilians. The Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor field team has received identical testimonies about the killings and executions of Palestinian children between the ages of four and 16.

Some of the fatal shootings occurred during an Israeli army siege while the victims’ families were inside their homes; others occurred when the victims attempted to escape via routes that the Israeli army had designated as “safe”  after forcibly evacuating them from their homes and places of residence.

The United States sent a letter to the Israeli Finance Ministry earlier this week informing Jerusalem that the sanctions imposed by the Biden administration earlier this year against violent settlers were not intended to compel Israeli banks to close the accounts of targeted individuals, an Israeli official tells The Times of Israel.

Several major banks took this step in order to avoid violating the sanctions, which the Biden administration began issuing earlier this year after determining that the Israeli government was systematically failing to clamp down on settler violence.

Webmaster addition: So the sanctions were just a PR ploy!

The US government is looking to boost purchases of military-grade explosives from Turkiye to ramp up production of artillery shells as Washington's stockpile is nearing depletion after two years of fueling the war in Ukraine.

Bloomberg cited officials in the know as saying that “Turkish supplies of trinitrotoluene, known as TNT, and nitroguanidine, which is used as a propellant, would be crucial in the production of NATO-standard 155mm caliber ammunition – potentially tripling production."

Turkish defense firm Repkon is reportedly expected to produce about 30 percent of all US-made 155mm artillery shells by 2025. Furthermore, the Pentagon has purchased “116,000 rounds of battle-ready ammunition from [Turkiye's] Arca Defense for delivery this year, with further purchases expected soon for delivery next year.”

Commercial airliners arriving at Lebanon’s Rafic Hariri International Airport in Beirut have recently been forced to use alternatives to GPS systems because of Israeli jamming technology. 

A Turkish Airlines flight faced several difficulties earlier this week as it descended towards the Lebanese airport, forcing it to move in circles for around 40 minutes before returning to Turkiye. 

“If they don't use the GPS signal, they will be using the ground-based equipment … which is not affected by any spoofing [or jamming technology],” a source told The National on 28 March. Lebanon’s Civil Aviation Agency has recently requested that civilian airliners suspend their use of GPS systems. 

As a result, Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry has vowed to file a complaint against Israel at the UN Security Council for jeopardizing flight safety in the airport’s airspace.

The Times expects you to pay to read the following article. Yet it says nothing new or novel and only reiterates what the likes of Scott Ritter and Douglas Macgregor have been saying for months now, although now its aimed at generating sympathy and support for Ukraine.

In essence, Ukraine is in the brink of outright defeat.

After squandering billions in arms and aid, Ukraine’s Western-backers have realized that they simply cannot keep up with Russia’s military/industrial output.

Much of armour that the West sent to Ukraine and which was heralded as potential game-changer weapons when they were sent – like the British Challenger II tanks, German Leopards and U.S. Abrams tanks – now lie wrecked and forgotten.

A Ukrainian soldier fighting near the country’s northern front line has described the menace of Russia’s bombardment, telling the Times of London that they are “losing so many people, there are so many bodies we can’t even bring them all back.”

Describing the fight as “fucking awful,” the soldier, identified by the paper as Lemur, added that Ukrainian forces in the area can’t move forward.

“We can barely hold the line,” he said.

According to the outlet, Lemur is fighting at Kupiansk in Ukraine’s Kharkiv Oblast, around where the Institute for the Study of War has reported marginal Russian gains in recent days.

UPDATE: Fox News has responded. From a spokesperson:

Jessica Tarlov’s March 21st statements were accurate and made clear that she was not aware of anything to indicate that payments from a Trump PAC to Elections, LLC were made in connection with Tony Bobulinski’s legal fees. We stand by our decision to not issue any further corrections and will vigorously defend against these inaccurate claims.

Original article:

Last week, Jessica Tarlov, a liberal co-host on Fox News Channel's "The Five," accused former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski of relying on a Trump Super PAC to pay his legal fees. Bobulinski's lawyers demanded a retraction and an apology, but Tarlov only offered a “clarification” of her claim, which was not sufficient in the eyes of Bobulinski's lawyers, who wanted a full retraction. She never made a retraction, and new Bobulinski is suing Tarlov for defamation.

In a newly filed complaint that PJ Media received, Bobulinski and co-plaintiff Stefan Passantino "seek to hold Defendant accountable for her malicious and knowing lies."
