"It is the very nature of power that it attracts the very sort of people who should not have it. The United States, as the world's last superpower, is a prize that attracts men and women willing to do anything to win that power, and hence are willing to do anything with it once they have it. It is racist to assume that tyrants appear only in other nations and that somehow America is immune simply because we're Americans. America has escaped the clutches of a dictatorship only through the efforts of those citizens who, unlike the Germans and Russians of the 1930s, have the moral courage to stand up and point out where the government is lying to the people." -- Michael Rivero
In his 2005 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Harold Pinter spent a good deal of his time detailing the crimes of the US in the world, but especially in Latin America. He spoke about how most people have been lulled into forgetting about these crimes, if they ever knew about them at all, thanks to Washington’s sophisticated propaganda machine:
“The United States supported and in many cases engendered every right wing military dictatorship in the world after the end of the Second World War. I refer to Indonesia, Greece, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Haiti, Turkey, the Philippines, Guatemala, El Salvador, and, of course, Chile. The horror the United States inflicted upon Chile in 1973 can never be purged and can never be forgiven.
Hundreds of thousands of deaths took place throughout these countries. Did they take place? And are they in all cases attributable to US foreign policy? The answer is yes they did take place and they are attributable to American foreign policy. But you wouldn’t know it.
Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow is not just symbolic as his first foreign excursion after being re-elected to an unprecedented third term. The trip is particularly important because of the wider context in which it is taking place. The global situation calls for a further upgrade in Sino-Russian relations to address the external challenges that both countries face.
The international system is going through a crisis on the scale of a world war. It began nearly a decade ago when the Western-supported "Euromaidan" coup in Kiev, and Russia’s response by taking control of Crimea, prompted a prolonged US-Russian confrontation.
This was followed three years later by the US abruptly replacing its former China policy of ‘engage and hedge’ with a trade and technology war, resulting in a confrontation between Washington and Beijing.
Cambridge University students at the Cambridge Union didn't like hearing historian and broadcaster Rafe Heydel-Mankoo argue that Britain should not pay reparations for slavery & colonialism. Well-established facts about the British Empire, Asia and Africa, which were well known to earlier generations of students, seem to be completely new to many of them -- and some do not want to hear or believe anything that contradicts the narrative they've been taught.
Washington is firmly opposed to a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine, US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby has said, branding any peace initiatives “unacceptable” in the current situation. The senior White House official made the remarks on Sunday in an interview with Fox News.
Kirby touched on the upcoming visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Moscow to meet his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, stating that should any peace initiatives come out of their meeting, Washington would reject them.
“What we have said 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 because all that’s going to do… is ratify Russian’s conquest to date,” Kirby stated.
In the second part of an exclusive interview, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says that Anthony Fauci is “guilty from the get go” with evidence showing he supported gain of function research as well as an elaborate effort to cover up the origins of COVID-19. One America’s John Hines has more from Capitol Hill.
Ryan Grim breaks down the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and how it ties to a similar theory on the origins of Covid.
Female students at one Arizona high school are disturbed by the official school policy telling them to leave their locker room if they are uncomfortable around a transgender student.
The Daily Caller reports that the Catalina Foothills School District board told parents that it would NOT be reviewing a policy that tells female students to leave a locker room if they are uncomfortable being around a transgender student in that locker room. This information was gleaned from an email from the Daily Caller News Foundation regarding the school’s lack of a policy change, following questions from the public and some of the students who attend the school.

This is the Canary in the coal mine for the banking industry.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is calling on the leaders of sovereign nations to surrender the authorities of their countries to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “global health emergency corps.”
Gates argues that the WHO should be viewed as a “fire department for pandemics” that seizes control of nations on a global level during health emergencies.
Speaking in a New York Times op-ed published Sunday, Gates voiced his support for the WHO’s Global Pandemic Treaty.
Frist Republic shares extended declines Monday, and look set to open at an all-time low, following a second credit rating downgrade for troubled San Francisco-based lender over the weekend.
Standard & Poor's, which had lowered First Republic's credit rating into 'junk' status only last week, cut it by a further three notches tp B+ on Sunday, saying the bank continues to face "high liquidity stress with substantial outflows".
The ratings company also said the recent move by a consortium of 11 banks, lead by JPMorgan Chase (JPM) - Get Free Report to add a collective $30 billion to its deposit base "may not solve the substantial business, liquidity, funding, and profitability challenges that we believe the bank is now likely facing."
Atlanta-area prosecutors are considering bringing racketeering and conspiracy charges in connection with Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.
Investigators have a large volume of substantial evidence related to a possible conspiracy from inside and outside the state, including recordings of phone calls, emails, text messages, documents, and testimony before a special grand jury.
Their work, the source said, underscores the belief that the push to help Trump was not just a grassroots effort that originated inside the state.
Biden is telling us in his own unique way that his handlers are panicking that 4 in 10 American households have guns. And once we get further down the road of the madness of an engineered economic collapse replaced by CBDCs and 15-minute cities, all hell is finally going to break loose.
Biden is also desperately bailing his corruption out of his sinking lifeboat, evidenced by Hunter’s last-minute legal attack.
The media can’t prop up this level of corruption for much longer. The hens have come back to roost.
So it is that the weakest President in US history, a Wilsonian progressive race-baiting compromised tool of the globalists, will make one last frail attempt to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to usher in a tyrannical dementia.
House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and Congressman Eric Burlison (R-Mo.) are investigating misleading statements made by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that the vast majority of illegal aliens released from DHS custody passed an initial threshold credible fear screening for asylum. According to DHS’ own data, this statement is misleading and creates a false narrative for how the Biden Administration processes and releases illegal border crossers into the United States. In a letter to Secretary Mayorkas, Chairman Comer and Congressman Burlison are requesting all documents and information about DHS’ catch and release policies and its limited used of credible fear interviews.
“This is the latest attempt by Secretary Mayorkas to spin the facts about President Biden’s border crisis. Under the Biden Administration’s watch, the Department of Homeland Security has gone back to failed catch and release policies. Only a fraction of those released in the U.S. are even screened for a credible fear. The Oversight Committee will continue to conduct much needed oversight of the Biden Administration’s policies that have created the worst border crisis in American history and hold Secretary Mayorkas and others accountable for their failure to secure the border,” said Chairman Comer.

Technically, the cutoff for SIFIs is $250 billion in assets. However, the reason they are called “systemically important” is not their asset size but the fact that their failure could bring down the whole financial system. That designation comes chiefly from their exposure to derivatives, the global casino that is so highly interconnected that it is a “house of cards.” Pull out one card and the whole house collapses. SVB held $27.7 billion in derivatives, no small sum, but it is only .05% of the $55,387 billion ($55.387 trillion) held by JPMorgan, the largest U.S. derivatives bank.
