"They [the media] are news-as-entertainment professionals – packaging glossy corporate content for maximum distribution and big bucks. The goal is not objective reportage. Their targets are quantifiable and highlighted in a business plan somewhere. Success is based on a simple formula: stay within parameters "understandable" to a wide audience that devours sound bites and familiar storylines on the hour, every hour.
Like trained seals whose every desire, instinct and buying pattern has been measured by corporate media's marketing department for the consumption of its advertisers, the audience demands satisfaction – and western media delivers it." -- Sharmine Narwani
Swedes will be 'sent to their deaths' if they join NATO, Russia's ambassador to Stockholm has warned in a tirade of attacks on the Nordic nation.
Viktor Tatarintsev claimed in a statement on the Russian embassy's website that Sweden and neighbour Finland would both face 'retaliatory measures', including 'military ones', if they join the international military alliance.
Sweden has since announced that it has summoned the Russian ambassador to explain his remarks in which he said Sweden and Finland would both become 'legitimate targets' after joining NATO.
However, according to disgraced AG Merrick Garland, supposedly nobody knows Audrey’s motive.
Unfortunately for Merrick, nobody believes that hogwash. We all know the killer wrote a manifesto.
It’s categorically laughable to suggest officials aren’t fully aware of the motive of the shooter.
However, the public may never know what really happened… LGBTQ activists are fighting tooth and nail to keep the manifesto buried and as of now, the Nashville police are refusing to release it.
In the Netherlands, the political establishment is reeling from the victory of the Farmer-Citizen Movement (BBB) in the recent provincial elections – an extraordinary result for an anti-establishment party that was formed just over three years ago, says Thomas Fazi in UnHerd. He has written an insightful piece on the sinister global agenda that the farmers are pushing back against. Here’s an excerpt.
The BBB grew out of the mass demonstrations against the Dutch Government’s proposal to cut nitrogen emissions by 50% in the country’s farming sector by 2030 — a target designed to comply with the European Union’s emission-reduction rules. While large farming companies have the means to meet these goals — by using less nitrogen fertiliser and reducing the number of their livestock — smaller, often family-owned farms would be forced to sell or shutter. Indeed, according to a heavily redacted European Commission document, this is precisely the strategy’s goal: “extensifying agriculture, notably through buying out or terminating farms, with the aim of reducing livestock”; this would “first be on a voluntary basis, but mandatory buyout is not excluded if necessary”.
The World Health Organization (WHO) revised its Covid vaccine recommendations and suggested that healthy children and adolescents may not need a shot.
In guidance released Tuesday, the global health agency deemed healthy young people 'low priority' for Covid jabs.
It said the public health impact of vaccinating healthy children and adolescents is 'much lower than the established benefits of traditional essential vaccines for children' like measles and polio.
When some scientists took a closer look at recent Webb images, they found that some of the galaxies were not only larger and more organized, but surprisingly they started forming stars earlier, making current theories more suspicious. Here's what astronomers say about this unexpected discovery,
Researchers, on the other hand, claim that in the recent image obtained from the Webb telescope, they found some early galaxies also contain large amounts of heavy elements that are not possible with their age according to our current model.

Scientists have discovered a new and renewable source of water on the moon for future explorers in lunar samples from a Chinese mission.
Water was embedded in tiny glass beads in the lunar dirt where meteorite impacts occur. These shiny, multicolored glass beads were in samples returned from the moon by China in 2020.
The beads range in size from the width of one hair to several hairs; the water content was just a miniscule fraction of that, said Hejiu Hui of Nanjing University, who took part in the study.
Since there are billions if not trillions of these impact beads, that could amount to substantial amounts of water, but mining it would be tough, according to the team.
The majority of Americans are seriously concerned about rising crime in their cities, as President Joe Biden's national approval rating takes a nosedive.
A new Marist Polling survey found that Biden's approval rating dropped four percentage points in March to 42%, falling from 46% in a February poll conducted around the president's State of the Union speech.
The poll revealed that 68% of Americans believe that crime is a "real threat in most communities."
Fox News host Tomi Lahren believes that the United States needs to have a national conversation about anti-Christian bigotry after the Nashville Christian school shooting.
“We hope that his story in Nashville continues to get coverage,” she said on Fox News, due to the fact that the shooter was transgender and the narrative would not work for Democrats.
“We also need to talk about the anti-Christian, anti-religious rhetoric that is so popular and mainstream right now, really cheered by the left,” she said, adding that it’s “irresponsible and reckless” to blame the entire transgender community for the actions of one person.
North Carolina’s state elections board on Tuesday removed two local election officials who had refused to certify their county's 2022 results after officials determined they violated state law.
The state board voted unanimously to dismiss Surry County elections secretary Jerry Forestieri and board member Timothy DeHaan in one of the strongest disciplinary actions taken against local officials across the U.S. who have delayed or refused to certify election results. Controversies over election certification have roiled mostly rural counties across the country as conspiracy theories about voting machines have spread widely among conservatives.
Forestieri and DeHaan had questioned the legitimacy of state election law and court decisions disallowing photo ID checks and voter residency challenges. They falsely claimed in a letter that the vote was "illegal" and "very uncertain."
Accompanying the horrifying news today that a mass shooting took place at a Christian elementary school near Nashville, Tenn. was the bizarre background information about the alleged assailant. A troubled young woman has been blamed for the killing of three adults and three children, and she identified herself as a transgender person, according to online profiles she left behind.
Audrey Elizabeth Hale, age 28, had once been a student at Covenant Presbyterian Church's school, which she returned to yesterday to gun down others. Her motives for slaughtering six innocent people aren't clear, but it's obvious to anyone that she suffered from one or more mental illnesses. Whether or not we find out what inner demons drove her to her fatal actions today, we know that her foray into transgenderism should've prompted those who knew her to seek competent psychological counseling.
File this under "Democrats are garbage people." But when you look at the media reaction to the transgender Nashville shooter, no one should be surprised. Though for funsies, imagine the media reaction if a Kari Lake spokeswoman tweeted something similar if the shooter was Christian.
Because hours after a transgender shooter who goes by he/him pronouns shot up a Christian school and murdered Christian nine-year-olds, Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs' press secretary Josselyn Berry tweeted this.
The US Army is to print a deck of playing cards featuring NATO weapons systems and will send them to states outside of the US-led bloc, including Ukraine, The New York Times reported on Tuesday. The cards will supposedly help Ukrainian troops “to tell friends from foes.”
The training tool was developed by the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command and will enable soldiers to quickly “identify enemy equipment and distinguish the equipment from friendly forces,” according to its spokesman, Maj. Andrew Harshbarger. It features information about “NATO equipment that has proliferated to non-NATO countries.”
"We've said it before and we’ll say it again today that if coming out of this meeting, there’s some sort of call for a ceasefire, well, that’s just going to be unacceptable," US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said on FOX News Sunday referring to the meeting in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The truth is that an off-ramp from armed conflict has never really proven to be a desired outcome for Washington. This is understandable when the US establishment elites seem to have more to gain than to lose from continued conflict in Ukraine. “The Ukrainians have proven that they are a really good investment for the United States,” former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last December. “They are not asking us to be there to fight their war; they’re fighting it themselves.” But it’s the US establishment that reaps the benefits of billions of dollars of US taxpayer cash poured into the military-industrial complex under the guise of defense spending for Ukraine.
There’s also the added bonus of having the entire European Union now more dependent on US energy, and its businesses bailing to the US in the wake of Brussels cutting itself off from the cheap Russian energy, on which the continent’s economy was built.
Elon Musk has taken fellow billionaire Bill Gates to task for his “limited” understanding of artificial intelligence (AI), suggesting he has a poor grasp of the emerging technology. Musk was responding to a comment by that Microsoft founder that he has been involved in the AI field for years.
Musk took a shot at Gates in a social media post on Monday, after another user shared a recent article penned by the Microsoft mogul, in which he states he has held several meetings with the team from OpenAI – a tech company co-founded by Musk – beginning in 2016.
Key figures in artificial intelligence want training of powerful AI systems to be suspended amid fears of a threat to humanity.
They have signed an open letter warning of potential risks, and say the race to develop AI systems is out of control.
Twitter chief Elon Musk is among those who want training of AIs above a certain capacity to be halted for at least six months.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and some researchers at DeepMind also signed.
OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, recently released GPT-4 - a state-of-the-art technology, which has impressed observers with its ability to do tasks such as answering questions about objects in images.
The letter, from Future of Life Institute and signed by the luminaries, wants development to be halted temporarily at that level, warning in their letter of the risks future, more advanced systems might pose.
An activist group has accused a Hollywood actress of claiming she has a Cherokee heritage when she does not.
The New York Post reported that Tribal Alliance Against Frauds (TAAF), an activist group, has targeted Heather Rae for saying, “my mom was Indian, and my father was a cowboy.”.
The director of the activist group, Lianna Constantino, said, “Being an American Indian person is not just about who you claim to be it’s about who claims you. And it’s much more than just race. We are citizens of sovereign nations. Being an Indian is a legal, political distinction.”
Rae, an award-winning actress, is a leading Native American in Hollywood and married to producer Russell Friedenberg. She serves on the Indigenous Alliance of the Academy of Motion Pictures and previously was part of the Native American Program at the Sundance Institute.
Although news reports have said the 56-year-old has a Cherokee mother, TAAF says she is profiting from making false claims regarding her heritage. According to The Post, activists say Rae is just 1/2048th Cherokee at best.
A TAROM Boeing 737-800, registration YR-BGK performing flight RO-7673 from Timisoara (Romania) to Hurghada (Egypt) with 184 passengers on board, was enroute at FL370 about 150nm south of Bucharest in Bulgarian Airspace when the first officer reported the captain had become incapacitated and they needed to turn around and divert to Bucharest. The aircraft landed safely on Bucharest’s runway 26R about 80 minutes after departure. (click here)
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 90 minutes, then departed again.
The airline reported the “medical emergency of one of the members of the command crew” prompted the crew to divert to Bucharest.
According to media reports in Bulgaria the captain (30 years of age) complained about chest pain and increased heart rate, then fell unconscious. The captain is on his way to recovery.
Historian Arnold Toynbee observed “an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”
It’s hard not to think about this reading the results of the latest Wall Street Journal-NORC poll, appearing under the headline “America Pulls Back From Values That Once Defined It.”
Only 38% of Americans now say patriotism is “very important,” compared to 70% in 1998. Thirty-nine percent say religion is “very important,” compared to 62% in 1998. And 30% say having children is “very important,” compared to 59% in 1998.
The results that follow from these attitudes are not surprising.
Marriage rates are way down. Birthrates are way down.
In 1990, 67% of American adults between the ages of 25-54 were married. This was down to 51% in 2021.
In 2020, there were 56 births in the U.S. for every 1,000 women ages 15-44. In 1990, there were 70.9.
And, among the births we do have, in 2021, 40% of our babies were born to unmarried mothers.
Over one year ago, on March 11, 2022, REUTERS reported that, “The World Health Organization advised Ukraine to destroy high-threat pathogens housed in the country's public health laboratories to prevent "any potential spills" that would spread disease among the population.”
This 2022 REUTERS article confirms the findings of the Russian biowarfare investigation, conducted by Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, Military Chief of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Protection Troops, that the Ukraine has been creating highly-infections pathogens (mRNA viruses) to target citizens of Russia, as well as to create global pandemics
The big question is, “Why is the United States supporting a country that has been creating bioweapons for use on global civilians? Shouldn’t the United States be supporting Russia, the nation that is trying to seize and destroy the bioweapons that are being used on global civilians?”
A revolutionary new blood test that promises to detect cancer up to a year before tumors form has been successfully trialed at U.K. hospitals, heralding a major breakthrough in cancer detection.
Developed by Indian firm Epigeneres Biotech in 2021, the “first pan-cancer blood test” predicted the formation of tumors for at least 25 types of cancer, including breast, pancreatic, lung, and colorectal, according to the New York Post.
The trial results, which involved 1,000 patients split evenly between those affected by cancer and those unaffected, were “radically successful,” according to Ashish Tripathi, the founder and CEO of Tzar Labs and chairman of Epigeneres Biotech. “Not only can I actually detect it at this stage — I can actually tell you which cancer and where it is forming, straight from a blood test,” Tripathi revealed in an interview with medical advocate Deepak Chopra.
Wake Up, America! We are in an undeclared war of terror, unfolding before your disbelieving eyes, shocked conscious, and overloaded cognitive domain.
Sometimes, we fail to believe what we see, as it shocks our consciousness. I’ll speak more about that specific phenomenon in a moment. This phenomenon is often reinforced by a cultural tendency in America to focus on the near-term, not strategic, and thereby miss the forest for the trees. That is to say; we can miss what’s happening right in front of us, that which we see with our eyes, but fail to fully absorb it as the context of the event shocks our system so greatly – we immediately shut down.
If we then consider the cultural tendency of Americans, to focus on the moment, and not think of, or view things, from a strategic perspective, we can be blinded not only to the moment, but to the broader events taking place before our eyes. We create a major potential vulnerability. A vulnerability, I contest, that our domestic and foreign enemies take advantage of.
Tucker Carlson opened his show on Tuesday with a discussion on the trans community and violence.
During his monologue, Tucker asserted that the transgender community is the mirror image of Christianity and the two groups are on a collision course.
Tucker Carlson: The trans movement is the mirror image of Christianity and therefore its natural enemy. In Christianity, the price of admission is admitting that you’re not God. Christians openly concede that they have no real power over anything and for that matter, very little personal virtue. They will tell you to your face that they are sinful and helpless and basically absurd. They’re not embarrassed about any of this. They brag about it. That saved a wretch like me goes the most famous Christian hymn ever written in English. The trans movement takes the opposite view. Trans ideology claims dominion over nature itself. We can change the identity we were born with. They will tell you with wild-eyed certainty Christians can never agree with this statement because these are powers they believe God alone possesses. That unwillingness to agree, that failure to acknowledge a trans person’s dominion over nature incites and enrages some in the trans community.
Fauci: "I got my second vaccine yesterday, and I feel like sh*t today!."
: "Oh — he had a vaccine reaction. He must be a CONSPIRACY THEORIST!"
Minutes before opening fire at a Nashville school and killing six people, Audrey Hale sent a chilling "suicide note" to a friend on Instagram.
In the message, Hale, a 28-year-old transgender woman, informed her former middle school teammate, Averianna Patton, of her plan to end her life. According to Patton, Hale wrote, "So basically that post I made on here about you, that was basically a suicide note. I'm planning to die today. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!" She then expressed her love for Patton and said she was leaving behind evidence of her plan.
Patton responded: “Audrey! You have so much more life to live. I pray God keeps and covers you.”
Hale continued the communication with Patton saying: “I know but I don’t want to live. I’m so sorry. I’m not trying to upset you or get attention. I just need to die. I wanted to tell you first because you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen and known all my life.”
She added: “My family doesn’t know what I’m about to do. One day this will make more sense. I’ve left more than enough evidence behind. But something bad is about to happen.”
A day after a gunman killed six people at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Sen. Josh Hawley took to the Senate floor to denounce the shooting as a hate crime against Christians.
“We must also tell the truth about what happened yesterday in Nashville,” Hawley said. “This murderous rampage, this taking of innocent life, was a horrific crime, but more specifically, it was a hate crime. A crime that according to Nashville police, specifically targeted, that’s their word, targeted, the members of this Christian community, the members of this religious institution.”
The mass murder Monday morning by a gender-confused woman of three young children and three adults inside a Nashville Christian elementary school is shining a spotlight on transgender activist violence and extremism — and the "progressive" enablers who provide them cover.
As millions of Americans and people across the world watched the Nashville police body-cam video footage of gun-toting Audrey Hale, a "transgender"-identified woman, stalking her victims at The Covenant School before being shot dead by quickly pursing police, various media and special-interest groups chastised conservatives for focusing on the trans issue instead of gun-control and Republican "anti-LGBT" legislation that supposedly gave rise to the violence.
Ever since Joe Biden and his handlers decided to turn the Federal Bureau of Investigation into the American Stasi, we’ve been hearing that the real threat to America is coming from “right wing radicals” or some such nonsense. The FBI has been targeting soccer moms at school board meetings and pro-lifers who pray outside of abortion clinics.
You know, the scariest people among us.
Every time I write about the rogue FBI and its goon squad priorities, I conclude by worrying about what the Bureau might be missing in the way of people who might actually commit violence. Thus far in the Biden era, it’s been a fairly steady stream of leftists who are snapping and killing.
The parents at school board meetings have yet to amass a body count.
The tragedy in Nashville this week has shed even more light on the continued violent radicalization of the American left. Matt reports that, prior to the shooting at Covenant School, a trans activist group coordinated something that seems like it might be worth some investigation by law enforcement:
The O’Keefe Media Group broke its first story investigating what appears to be a national plot to utilize senior citizens matching a similar profile as vehicles to launder millions of dollars into political campaigns.
China has threatened to “resolutely fight back” if US House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy meets Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen during her planned transit through the United States.
The warning on Wednesday came as Tsai was due to depart for a trip to Guatemala and Belize, which will see her transit through New York and California in the US.
