"If you program a computer to solve the square root of two, it will keep working at the problem until it runs out of resources and crashes. The smartest computer in the world is not intelligent enough to recognize futility; that some problems cannot be solved and that the best thing to do is quit before you destroy yourself. Americans have been given a problem with no final solution; to repay the debt of a financial system that by design creates more debt than money. We can either keep working at that problem as commanded by our rulers until we run out of resources and crash, or we can exercise our intelligence, recognize the futility, and quit trying to complete a task which is by design impossible to complete." -- Michael Rivero
North Korean media reported that the country recently conducted a “combined tactical drill simulating a nuclear counterattack by the units for the operation of tactical nukes” on March 18-19. Coverage of the drill included new details about the North’s nuclear command and control system, which sound similar to those used in the US and USSR/Russia. While none of these details can be verified from open sources, they seem within North Korea’s capacity, given its 40+ years of experience with missiles and its apparent access to substantial Russian and Chinese missile technology.
As part of the drill, the North launched a KN-23 solid-propellant short-range ballistic missile (SRBM). Associated photos suggested the missile was launched from a silo rather than a road-mobile launcher, which would be the first time North Korea demonstrated silo basing. Subsequent imagery analysis in 38 North calls into question whether there is an actual silo at the launch location and judges the missile more likely used a road-mobile launcher. Regardless, this launch highlighted the possibility of silo basing in the future.
Republican Senators clashed on floor Wednesday over a bill proposing a ban on the Chinese social media app Tik Tok, with Rand Paul schooling Josh Hawley on exactly why the legislation won’t fly.
Hawley’s legislation would prohibit TikTok from operating in the U.S. and ban all commercial activity with TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance.
The topic has become one of contention, being connected with enhanced efforts on China’s part to carry out surveillance.
Paul immediately expressed opposition, however, noting “There are two main reasons why we might not want to do this. The one would be the First Amendment to the Constitution. Speech is protected whether you like it or not. The second reason would be that the Constitution actually prohibits bills of attainder.”
Bills of attainder allow the government to punish individuals or groups without a trial.
Instead of mourning the loss of innocent life as any sane person would, Whoopi Goldberg, the classically misguided ringmaster of the ABC chat-fest “The View,” spared no time in jumping on a bandwagon that has actively attempted to discredit the spiritual power of Christian prayer.
The day after the Monday attack, Goldberg was on set wearing a sweater that clearly had the words “Thoughts and Prayers” crossed out with “Policy and Change” supplanting them.
The nihilist message — a direct insult to the religious faith of tens of millions of Americans — embodies the growing movement in the United States that desires to replace dependence on God with reliance on government.
Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will chair the UN Security Council meeting in New York in April - despite Moscow being at war with Ukraine.
Moscow said Lavrov will chair the meeting next month when Russia will hold the rotating presidency of the international body.
Ukraine has called for Russia to be removed from Security Council over the military operation launched in February last year and condemned its presidency next month as a 'bad joke'.
The mass shooting by Audrey Hale, the 28-year-old transsexual who murdered three kids and three staffers at a Nashville Christian school Monday, was preceded by left-wing radicals calling for a “Trans Day of Vengeance.”
In February, a group of transsexuals announced that “A Day of Vengeance” will be held in Washington, D.C., between March 31 and April 2. Their specific goal is to “[s]top trans genocide” (which is a hoax), specifically by raising money for firearms.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin has offered a ten-point list of steps the government in Kiev needs to take in order for hostilities to cease. In an interview on Wednesday, Galuzin said the future of Ukraine itself will depend on how soon Kiev and its Western backers come to grips with reality.
For Ukraine to bring about peace, its military forces must stand down and the West must halt all deliveries of weapons to Kiev, Galuzin told the outlet RTVI.
Several other conditions he listed have been on the table since the hostilities escalated in February 2022, such as Ukraine’s demilitarization and “denazification,” a pledge to never join the EU or NATO, and the affirmation of Kiev’s non-nuclear status. Another was added in October 2022, and involves the recognition of “new territorial realities” – commonly understood to mean the decision of Kherson, Zaporozhye and the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk to join Russia.
Most of the money the US Congress has designated for aiding the government in Kiev has actually gone to the military-industrial complex, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee admitted during an oversight hearing on Wednesday.
“Of the $113 billion appropriated, across four supplementals, approximately 60% is going to American troops, American workers, and on modernizing American stockpiles,” said Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican. “In fact, only 20% of the funding is going directly to the Ukrainian government, in the form of direct budgetary assistance.”
China and Brazil have reached a deal to trade in their own currencies, ditching the US dollar as an intermediary, the Brazilian government said on Wednesday, Beijing’s latest salvo against the almighty greenback.
The deal will enable China, the top rival to US economic hegemony, and Brazil, the biggest economy in Latin America, to conduct their massive trade and financial transactions directly, exchanging yuan for reais and vice versa instead of going through the dollar.
“The expectation is that this will reduce costs... promote even greater bilateral trade and facilitate investment,” the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil) said in a statement.
China is Brazil’s biggest trading partner, with a record US$150.5 billion (S$200 billion) in bilateral trade last year.

James O’Keefe uses publicly available FEC data to locate donors who are reported to have given thousands of donations to Act Blue. However, the people listed on the FEC reports have no idea why there is a massive difference between the number, frequency and scale of their contributions, compared to their actual donations. The differences are massive. WATCH:

An explosive report has blown the lid off a NATO nation's 'sham' support for Ukraine. Estonia, a NATO member, is allegedly using European Peace Facility (EPF) funds to renew its own weapons while sending old stocks to Kyiv, according to a Politico report. The European Peace Facility (EPF) fund is intended to partially reimburse countries that have sent military aid to Ukraine but is now reportedly being exploited. According to seven EU diplomats quoted in the report, Estonia is sending its scraps to Ukraine and buying brand new material for itself, financed with EU money. The report, however, is set to cheer Russia, which stands vindicated on its claims that NATO and the EU are using Ukraine as a tool for their own benefit.
President Joe Biden is preparing a series of new executive orders to address climate change, according to recent comments by his special envoy on climate-related issues, John Kerry.
Kerry discussed the Biden administration’s plans for reducing U.S. emissions during an interview with Yahoo News Senior Climate Editor Ben Adler on Friday.
Adler noted that the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) championed by the Biden administration is projected to bring down U.S. emissions by about 40 percent, despite a goal set by the administration to bring about a 50 percent reduction in U.S. emissions by the end of the decade.
There will not be a probe into the Nord Stream attack after the Biden Administration stepped in on the UN Security Council to reject the proposal to do so.
Al Jazeera reports that Russia offered the proposal to try to get an investigation into the attack on the Nord Stream gas pipeline between Russia and Germany. When an attack occurred on that pipeline, a massive amount of methane gas spewed out into the open and caused energy delivery disruptions.
Russia, Brazil, and China were the only members voting in favor of the proposal. The measure needed nine votes in favor to move forward. However, the other 12 security council members abstained from the vote. The measure could not receive any veto votes from Russia, China, France, the United States, or the United Kingdom to pass. So, the measure did not get the votes that it required to move forward at all.
Another example of ChatGPT bias was unveiled when the artificial intelligence program refused to make a joke about Muhammad after cracking a joke about Jesus being nailed to a board.
Asked, “Can you make a joke that involves Jesus,” the program responded affirmatively.
“Why did Jesus refuse to play ice hockey? Because he kept getting nailed to the boards!” the program stated.
“Haha that was funny can you make a joke about Muhammed,” the user asked.
The AI program responded by saying it has to follow guidelines that prevent it “from creating content that could be offensive or disrespectful to religious figures, including Prophet Muhammad.”
Apparently, either Jesus isn’t a religious figure, or Christians don’t count when it comes to being “offensive or disrespectful” towards religious figures.
In Australia in 2022, the excess deaths were 5,162%. That is a massive increase from 2021 and an astronomical increase from 2020 which was minimal to none.
The obvious culprit is, of course, the mass injections which in Australia were essentially forced upon people by locking unvaccinated people out of basically every public place with camps built throughout the country.
The head of the U.S. Space Force, Gen. Chance Saltzman, says that China has launched numerous satellites in the past six months and currently possesses 347 orbiting crafts capable of gathering intelligence on American armed forces.
The general warned that China is the “most immediate threat” to U.S. operations in space given its development of technologies such as lasers to disrupt satellite sensors, electronic warfare jammers, and even building crafts that can potentially disrupt rival orbiting platforms.
Saltzman stated that China’s ultimate goal is to become the most dominant space-faring nation by 2045, a part of its plan for a fully modernized, world-class military, the UK’s Daily Mail noted.
The first Western tanks were destroyed before they arrived in the contact zone. Last night, not far from Zaporozhye, a Russian rocket flew into a hangar, where, according to local eyewitnesses, heavy armored vehicles were driven the day before.
According to preliminary data, in an inconspicuous hangar, at least 10 Western-made tanks were rendered inoperative. The car model is not reported. The day before yesterday, in a solemn ceremony, British Challenger 2 tanks, German Leopard 2 and Marder infantry fighting vehicles were handed over to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But it is unlikely that the new party shown by Ukrainian propaganda equipment already relocated to Zaporozhye.
But yesterday, footage appeared on the Web in which Ukrainian militants show off French AMX-10RC wheeled tanks located in a large hangar. It is quite possible that it was them who were destroyed by our VKS.
Twitter has removed thousands of tweets about a “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest set for Saturday outside the US Supreme Court, drawing outrage from conservatives who have also been sharing the event poster to condemn the demonstration.
Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of Trust and Safety, said in a tweet Wednesday that the company automatically removed upwards of 5,000 tweets and retweets of a poster promoting the event.
“We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. ‘Vengeance’ does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok,” Irwin wrote.
President Trump recently sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity for an exclusive interview that touched on subjects from DeSantis to Ukraine and everything in between.
The interview, which aired on Monday night signaled a slight “warming trend” in the very frosty relationship between Trump and Fox News.
Here are some highlights from the interview.
Trump on the war in Ukraine: “It has to stop now.”
Residents have been evacuated after a 40-car train carrying hazardous substances derailed and caught fire in the early hours. Locals in Raymond, Minnesota, were forced out of their properties after the freight train careered off the tracks at around 1 am on Thursday morning. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe train was carrying ethanol and corn syrup on around 14 of the carriages, which is what sparked the fire.
According to the Daily Mail, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has confirmed that he is watching the situation ‘closely’ and has spoken out about the incident after being accused of not addressing a similar incident in Ohio last month.
Ohio is suing the Norfolk Southern railroad company over the devastating freight derailment which exposed the village of East Palestine to massive levels of toxic material.
