New data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that ever since Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” were launched, the birth rate Down Under has plunged by an astounding 63 percent.
From October to November in 2021, there was a 21 percent decrease in births compared to the average over a 10-year period. From November to December 2021, just one month later, there was a 63 percent decrease in births.
“December was about nine months after the roll-out of the COVID vaccines,” notes LifeSiteNews‘ David James about the rough time period from conception to birth. (Related: Taiwan saw a similar 23 percent plunge in births following the launch of Operation Warp Speed.)
“It is possible that some of these numbers will be revised, but should the trend continue Australia will finish up with empty maternity wards. Even the propagandists running government media departments, and the so-called journalists mimicking everything they say, will have trouble hiding that problem.”
Get ready for the riots to break out... France's government has just proposed raising the legal retirement age as it embarks on significant reforms to the pension system, and not for the first time. The Macron government going years back was already met with fierce pushback and anger upon earlier similar proposals and major overhaul attempts. The plan was unveiled Tuesday by Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne, and proposes raising legal retirement age from 62 to 64 by 2030.
The plan stopped short of Macron's previously proposed 65, and an outline of the proposal seeks to require that workers pay into the system for two more years, raising this from the current 41 to 43 years paying in.
Armenia has canceled planned military drills with Russia which were to be held under the countries' Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), straining relations further between the uneasy regional allies.
"These exercises will not take place," Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told a Tuesday press briefing. "Armenia does not believe it is expedient to conduct CSTO exercises in the republic this year."
It's a sign that the protracted war in Ukraine is causing Moscow to lose influence in the Southern Caucasus region, but it also follows the CSTO refusing to condemn Azerbaijan aggression related to the Nagorno-Karabakh war of 2020, and other skirmishes which followed.
In recent weeks I’ve been seeing an interesting narrative fallacy being sold to the general public when it comes to the designs of globalists. The mainstream media and others are now openly suggesting that it’s actually okay to be opposed to certain aspects of groups like the World Economic Forum. They give you permission to be concerned, just don’t dare call it conspiracy.
This propaganda is a deviation from the abject denials we’re accustomed to hearing in the Liberty Movement for the past decade or more. We have all been confronted with the usual cognitive dissonance – The claims that globalist groups “just sit around talking about boring economic issues” and nothing they do has any bearing on global politics or your everyday life. In some cases we were even told that these groups of elites “don’t exist”.
Now, the media is admitting that yes, perhaps the globalists do have more than just a little influence over governments, social policies and economic outcomes. But, what the mainstream doesn’t like is the assertion that globalists have nefarious or authoritarian intentions. That’s just crazy tinfoil hat talk, right?
The reason for the narrative shift is obvious. Far too many people witnessed the true globalist agenda in action during the pandemic lockdowns and now they see the conspiracy for what it is. The globalists, in turn, seem to have been shocked to discover many millions of people in opposition to the mandates and the refusals to comply were clearly far greater than they expected. They are still trying to push their brand of covid fear, but the cat is out of the bag now.
They failed to get what they wanted in the west, which was a perpetual Chinese-style medical tyranny with vaccine passports as the norm. So, the globalist strategy has changed and they are seeking to adapt. They admit to a certain level of influence, but they pretend as if they are benevolent or indifferent.

The Coast Guard said it continues to intercept and rescue illegal aliens from overloaded and unseaworthy vessels and warned that those interdicted at sea would be repatriated.
In a statement about the 83 Haitians repatriated on Monday, Lt. Travis Poulos said Coast Guard District Seven and partner agencies continue to patrol the Florida Straits, Windward, and Mona passages.
“These ventures are extremely dangerous and could cost you your life,” Poulos said.
The Project for Privacy & Surveillance Accountability announced this week that it has obtained records about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ use of stingrays to track Americans.
Stingrays are a relatively new technology that simulate cell towers and collect signals from devices nearby.
PPSA filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the ATF in February 2021, and announced on Wednesday that it had received a batch of documents. According to PPSA, those documents show that the agency uses stingrays.
“The information released by the ATF confirms the agency is indeed utilizing stingray technology,” PPSA said. “Although the agency attempted to minimize the usage of stingrays, it is clear they are being widely used against Americans.”
PPSA has not published the documents it received, but described some of their contents.
“The ATF stressed that stingrays are not precise location trackers like GPS, despite the plethora of information stingrays can still provide,” the organization said. “Answers to questions from the Senate Appropriations Committee about the ATF’s usage of stingrays and license plate reader technology are entirely blacked out in the ATF documents we received.”
PPSA added that ATF policy conceals the use of these devices from their targets, even when relevant to their legal defense.
Meta said it will remove content promoting or endorsing the riots in Brazil. On Sunday, former President Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters stormed the Congress building (Palacio do Planalto) and the Supreme Court building in the capital, Brasilia.
In a statement, Meta spokesperson Andy Stone said: “We’re also designating this as a violating event, which means we will remove content that supports or praises these actions. We’re actively monitoring the situation and will continue removing content that violates our policies.”
Like the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the US capitol, the media has blamed tech platforms for allowing a spread of alleged misinformation on social media for fueling the recent riots in Brazil.
Several leaders in Latin America, the US, the EU, and even Bolsonaro himself condemned the riots in Brasilia. Current President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva described the riots as barbaric and ordered the use of federal forces to restore order.
Making headlines around the world last week was the news that the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Denise George, was fired just days after she filed a federal lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, charging it with facilitating the sex trafficking of children by Jeffrey Epstein. George was fired by the Governor of the Virgin Islands, Albert Bryan Jr.
Unfortunately, those headlines and the mainstream news articles that accompanied them, fail to capture the worst parts of this story, which includes the following: the 30-page lawsuit filed by Attorney General George on December 27 in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York includes a “Sealed Document Placed in Vault” according to the Docket Sheet in the case; after the paragraph headlined as “JP Morgan Ignored Obvious Red Flags Relating to Epstein’s Accounts,” large segments of the lawsuit have been redacted with black lines covering full paragraphs; pages 15 through 22 of the lawsuit are completely white, with no black line redactions and no text; the case has been assigned to Judge Jed Rakoff, who lately seems to be the only Judge in that large courthouse that is allowed to oversee sensitive matters pertaining to JPMorgan Chase – the largest bank in the U.S. which has a rap sheet that reads like the Gambino crime family and which has racked up five criminal felony counts – to which it pleaded guilty. (See Judge Rakoff Signs a Dangerous Protective Order in Whistleblower Case Against 5-Count Felon JPMorgan Chase.)
In November, two Jane Doe cases were filed individually against JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank for facilitating Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking. Those cases were also assigned to Judge Jed Rakoff and have now been consolidated with the Virgin Islands case. The lead attorney in both Jane Doe cases is the prominent attorney, David Boies, of law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP.
Kirill Budanov, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defenсe of Ukraine, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were planing to go on a large-scale offensive in the spring of 2023.
Russia's special military operation in Ukraine is nothing else but Moscow's counteroffensive against the US-led Atlantic world. This proxy war between the United States and the Russian Federation may cause not only Ukraine, but a number of other European states to fall apart and disappear.
Israel’s former military intelligence chief has said Israel convinced the US that Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani posed an “immediate threat” to American soldiers, the same language former President Trump used to justify his assassination at the time, although no evidence was ever provided for the claim.
Soleimani was the commander of Iran’s IRGC Quds Force and was killed in Baghdad by a US drone strike in January 2020. At the time, Tamir Hayman served as the head of Israel’s Military Intelligence Directorate. Hayman told Jewish News that Israel had provided the US with information to convince the US Soleimani posed a threat.
“We supplied the intelligence and shared analysis and over a long period of time they were eventually convinced that Soleimani was an immediate threat to American lives and its strategic posture in the Middle East,” Hayman said.
Several scientific studies have emerged that call into question the safety and effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines, raising alarm bells about the potential harm they may cause and their ability to prevent infection and transmission.
The findings of these studies are disturbing and suggest that vaccinated individuals may be at higher risk of contracting and spreading the alleged Covid-19 virus.
They also suggest that the “vaccines” may increase susceptibility to infection.
These revelations have serious implications for the still ongoing vaccination efforts and call into question the wisdom of ever mandating the public to take these experimental injections.
Because the evidence is now clear.
According to three individual studies published by the US Centers for Disease Control, the UK Government, and Oxford University, Covid-19 vaccines are harmful and ineffective.
In early December, the Ministry of National Defense published the number of people who may be called up for active military service in 2023 and those who can serve in the reserve. In total, the call can get 250,000. reserve soldiers, unless they are 55 years old or do not perform an important function.
Such people are to be invited to military recruitment centers, where they will be presented with a proposal for reserve exercises. During the exercises, recruits will familiarize themselves with military equipment and will be assigned to a specific military unit.
It will be possible to choose the date of the exercise and the unit in which the exercise will be carried out. It is possible to appeal against the decision within 14 days. The refusal will have to be justified, e.g. by health or professional situation.
The 34-year-old comedian has been using the opiate fentanyl since the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic and commonly checks in and out of rehabilitation centers. With his addiction, he wakes up some mornings homeless on the streets of Southern California.
“You are talking on the phone to a guy about to get his drugs right now,” he said slurring his words off of Huntington Beach’s 17th Street. “And you just missed me getting shaken down by some guy over here.”

The “guy” Pete was referencing, a drug dealer, did not give Pete the drugs he wanted. Instead, he paid a nearby homeless individual $80 to help him track down a dealer.
“I would say that the easiest cities to get [fentanyl] in Orange County would be either Costa Mesa or Santa Ana,” Pete said the morning after being arrested for public drunkenness by Newport Beach Police.
“You can ask any homeless person and they can tell you where to find fentanyl to inject or smoke,” he said.
Dealers which are nicknamed “Fentanyl Fairies” blend in with local homeless populations, even sometimes pushing shopping carts that appear to be filled with their belongings.
The blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh – a mountainous region internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but under effective Armenian control for three decades – is entering its fourth week. Reports highlight the rapidly dwindling supply of medicine, foodstuffs, and other essentials with seemingly no resolution in sight. Preoccupied with its war in Ukraine, Russia, the region’s historic referee, has shown itself to be either unwilling or unable to end the ongoing crisis.
Azerbaijani self-described eco-activists have been blocking the Lachin Corridor, the only road connecting Nagorno-Karabakh with Armenia proper, for almost a month. They are demanding a halt to what they claim are illegal mining practices on Azerbaijani territory, as well as the transfer of weapons (specifically mines) through the corridor.
Officials in the region’s de facto capital, Stepanakert, have invited international experts to inspect the mines, which they say are operating “in the best standards,” and have rejected Baku’s claims that the road is being used to transport arms. However, Azerbaijan continues to press the issue of arms transfers on the international stage.
These issues risk reigniting the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, with potentially disastrous consequences for regional stability as a weakened Russia may no longer be able to keep the peace.
If Washington D.C. had no black population – responsible for virtually all gun crime – would these signs be necessary? [‘Thou shalt not kill’ posters coming to DC. Can they help curb gun violence?, WTOP.COM, January 9, 2023]:
A majority of the white ethnicities, such as the French Huguenots, the Irish, the Scots, and others, came to the original colonies to escape oppression and persecution. Some came as slaves. English debtors were sold into indentured servitude to cover their debts.
The notion of Woke white liberals that only blacks were enslaved is historical ignorance. There were more white slaves in history than black. Arab slave traders raided the coastal cities of Italy and France. Arabs captured Americans off of merchant ships, causing the Founding Fathers to send the US Marines to the shores of Tripoli. Why are only black descendants of former slaves entitled to reparations?
The white American liberals have concocted a fiction that only white Americans are responsible for slavery. The truth of the matter is that white Americans have no responsibility for slavery. Every black purchased as a member of an agricultural work force in America was enslaved long before arriving in the British colonies of North America which became later the United States. They were enslaved by the African slave wars between black tribes or kingdoms, among which the black king of Dahomey was supreme.
The European Union will expand sanctions pressure on Russia, as well as on those who provide military assistance to the Russian Federation, such as Belarus and Iran. This was stated on Tuesday by the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen at a press conference in NATO after the signing of the declaration on EU-NATO cooperation.
"We will continue the sanctions pressure on the Kremlin for as long as necessary. We will also expand sanctions against those who provide military support to Russia, such as Belarus and Iran," she said.
The head of the European Commission called for the provision of any weapons Ukraine needs. "I think Ukraine should get all the weapons it needs, including advanced air defense systems," she said. The head of the European Council, Charles Michel, also agreed with von der Leyen. "I support this position. The European Council has called many times to increase aid to Ukraine," he added.
... it always was "when", against the background of Russian Army full "economy of force" mode of SMO. So, Soledar is now in mopping up mode.
Units of Wagner Group have taken control of the “entire territory” of Soledar, the head of the private military company Yevgeny Prigozhin claimed on Tuesday evening. Fighting is still going on in the center of town, where an unknown number of Ukrainian soldiers has been encircled. “There is a cauldron in the center of town, where urban fighting is taking place,” Prigozhin said in a statement released to the media. “We’ll announce the number of prisoners tomorrow.” He added that only Wagner “and no other units” had taken part in the storming of Soledar.
What is known about VSU losses in Soledar alone, even Ukie sources admit that they are catastrophic. If to believe Ukie sources--they lost 14 battalions in Soledar.
Panic and fear spread throughout the special operations community at Fort Bragg and Fayetteville, North Carolina as CID and FBI agents investigated members of 3rd Special Forces Group and Delta Force who allegedly were involved in drug and in one instance human trafficking, according to nearly a dozen current and former military sources.
The arrests began Thursday, Jan. 5 and culminated with a 100% recall and accountability formation for 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group yesterday.
The leader of the Israeli opposition party, Benny Gantz, called on Sunday for citizens to take to the streets in protest against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s proposed judicial overhaul, The Middle East Monitor reported.
Gantz, Israel’s former Defence Minister, argued that the majority of Israelis oppose what he described as Netanyahu’s “coup d’etat”.
Speaking at a party meeting in parliament, Gantz said that Netanyahu’s judicial reform plan will lead to “civil war” and stressed that, “It’s time to go out en masse and demonstrate; it’s time to make the country tremble.”
However, Netanyahu told his party that he is trying to “return Israel to the correct balance” between political and judicial authorities, similar to that in the US and EU countries.
Gantz warned Netanyahu that if he continues on this path, he will be responsible for a “civil war” in Israel.
On 10 January 2022, in the late afternoon, official media sources of the Russian Wagner PMC stated that the cirty of Soledar had been captured by Russian units.
Soledar was one of the key points of defence of the AFU in the East of Ukraine. The city is home to Europe’s largest salt production facility.
Evgeny Prigoggin, head of the Wagner PMC, announced:
“Wagner PMC units have taken control of the entire territory of Soledar. A cauldron has been formed in the centre of the city, where urban fighting is taking place. The number of prisoners will be announced tomorrow.
I should like to stress once again that no units other than those of the Wagner Cheka were involved in the storming of Soledar.”
A member of Israel's government said he prefers "Jewish murderers over Arab murderers" during a heated parliamentary committee meeting, in the latest example of Benjamin Netanyahu's new administration veering to the racist far right.
Hanoch Milwidsky, a lawmaker from Netanyahu's Likud party, said "crude tools" must be used against Palestinians who carry out deadly attacks against Israelis, including the death penalty, stripping Palestinian citizens of Israel of their citizenship and retaliating against suspects' families.
The statement prompted a heated exchange with Ahmad Tibi, a Palestinian member of Israel's parliament, who said Milwidsky's proposal unfairly targets Palestinians in Israel, occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
