A popular French radio station has claimed that Turkey is suspected of stirring unrest in the overseas French territory of New Caledonia, an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean near Australia.

"Both Azerbaijan and Turkey are suspected of exploiting the Caledonian separatists," Europe 1 reported on Wednesday. "It is no longer a secret for the DGSI [French intelligence], which sees the hand of Baku or Ankara behind the Caledonian separatists."

Unrest erupted on the islands on Monday after French lawmakers pushed forward plans to allow citizens who have lived in New Caledonia for at least 10 years to vote in the territory’s elections.

Rescuers in Iran are trying to reach a helicopter involved in "an incident" while traveling with an entourage including President Ebrahim Raisi, state television reported Sunday.

Iranian state television says helicopter carrying President Ebrahim Raisi had a 'hard landing'. There was no immediate elaboration on what happened to the helicopter, nor who was on board. Semiofficial news agencies offered varying explanations for what was happening.

Raisi had been in Azerbaijan early Sunday to inaugurate a dam with Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev. The dam is the third one that the two nations built on the Aras River.

Iranian state media has reported the incident occurred near Jolfa, a border city around 375 miles north west of capital, Tehran.

Iran flies a variety of helicopters in the country, but international sanctions make it difficult to obtain parts for them. Its military air fleet also largely dates back to before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The billionaire owner of Total Wine left his House seat in Maryland’s 6th district to run for Senator. On Tuesday night, he lost the Democratic primary to George’s County executive Angela Alsobrooks by double digits.

Trone pumped more than $60 million into his campaign, spending almost ten times more than Alsobrooks.

In Congress, Trone was a staunch opponent of the BDS movement and even stopped donating to the ACLU over their defense of boycotts. He was an AIPAC donor, contributing at least $100,000 to the lobbying organization every year.

ou’ve heard the latest about Ukraine, right? It turns out that a good chunk of the billions upon billions we’re funneling over to them are actually going into “get rich quick” scams. Who woulda thunk it, right? Well, Revolver sure did.

Revolver:

According to reports, officials in Kharkiv have been using our hard-earned US tax dollars in a get-rich-quick scheme with fictitious companies. But your government is keeping quiet about this. The Biden regime would rather have you believe that Ukraine still stands a chance to win this conflict.

Spoiler alert: They don’t.

[…]

Antony Blinken is desperately hoping you don’t find out where your money is actually going in Ukraine, which is probably why he looks like a deer caught in headlights.

The Navy’s top acquisition official told lawmakers this week his service has three projects — including one from the Marine Corps — involved in Replicator, a Pentagon effort to quickly field large numbers of uncrewed systems.

“The Navy has been very supportive of Replicator,” Nickolas Guertin, assistant Secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition, said at a May 15 hearing. “We actually brought two Navy, one Marine Corps project to the first tranche of replicator in partnership with the [Office of the Secretary of Defense.]”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Guertin meant that the service had proposed three projects or that all were selected. A Navy spokesman refused to clarify his statement or comment further on the systems, as did a spokesman for Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, who’s leading Replicator.

An Army plan to modernize its artillery could include howitzers fielded in Europe, automated cannons, and long-range mortars, Army Futures Command chief Gen. James Rainey suggested Thursday at a Senate hearing. 

“There are some very good wheeled howitzers that are having great effect in a place like Europe,” said Rainey, speaking while describing acquisition plans informed by an Army study on artillery modernization, also dubbed the tactical fires study. 

The U.S. is planning on a competition between various mobile artillery systems this summer to select a new self-propelled howitzer. The competition follows the cancellation of the Extended Range Cannon Artillery (ERCA) howitzer. 

Rainey may have been referring to artillery systems fielded in Ukraine, the only place in Europe where wheeled howitzers are being used in combat. 

Ukraine uses a number of wheeled howitzers, including France’s Caesar, Sweden’s Archer, and the domestically produced 2S22 Bohdana. The Caesar has performed well on the battlefield, with losses of less than 10 percent amid frequent Russian drone strikes on Ukrainian artillery.

The Army remains on track to deliver a “composite” missile-defense battalion that will become part of an integrated defense system for Guam, the commander of 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command said Wednesday. Guam is the test ground for the composite-battalion approach the Army will use to integrate its missile-defense capabilities, primarily the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, and Patriot systems. “I can’t comment on the exact timeline, but the Army remains on track on the commitments that they’ve made to [U.S. Indo-Pacific Command] to deliver capability on time,” Brig. Gen. Patrick Costello said during a question-and-answer session at the Land Forces Pacific, or LANPAC, symposium on Waikiki Beach.

A barely detectable speck appears near a beaming, late afternoon sun and then dodges behind a cloud. Soon that small speck, as it makes its slow descent, takes the form of a sleek, small unmanned aircraft.

The aircraft makes a quiet, delicate landing along the runway of a remote island airfield in the Philippines in the temporarily breezeless, scorching heat. The platform — a Kraus Hamdani Aerospace K1000 — had spent the majority of the day flying above the South China Sea and collecting data for the Extended Range Sensing and Effects Company, which is part of the U.S. Army’s 1st Multi-Domain Task Force.

Here in the Philippines, the 1st MDTF is using the Balikatan military exercise to experiment with its structure and identify the assets that will best serve joint and coalition forces in situations where adversaries can deny regional access. The bilateral drill between the American and Philippine armed forces took place April 11-May 9.

The ERSE Company set up camp in Basco, a volcanic island in the Batanes island chain north of the Philippines’ largest island of Luzon. On a clear day from certain high points on the island, one can see Taiwan.

On Friday, the New York Times reported that over the last several weeks and in recent days, high-level Ukrainian government officials have been pressing the Biden administration to provide sensitive intelligence information that would allow the far-right regime to launch military strikes deep within Russian territory.

While the US already provides Ukraine with some intelligence on the positions of Russian forces on the border, the Times reported that Ukrainians are pushing the Biden administration for more “real-time intelligence” so that drones and guided missile strikes could more easily evade Russian air defenses.

This is the second report in as many days from the Times, a conduit of the Pentagon and intelligence agencies, that provide a glimpse into the well-advanced NATO plans for escalating the war against Russian in Ukraine. On Thursday, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Charles Q. Brown told the paper that the NATO alliance would “eventually” send combat troops to Ukraine, describing it as “inevitable.”

It should be noted that when Israel launched its operation into Gaza, Prime Minister Netanyahu assured Israelis that “total victory” was only “weeks away”..

More than six months after Netanyahu’s initial prediction, Israel is far from “total victory”.

Instead, with hundreds of Israeli soldiers killed in an inconclusive campaign, Israel now has to face the prospect of a bloody stalemate, at best. If not defeat and maybe even the end of Israel as a viable nation state, at worst,.

This may explains why the following report from a Zionist owned news outlet makes wildly over-estimated claims about Hamas losses. As when it reports that “it is fair to assume that from each battalion of 1,000 (Hamas) people, some 300 would have escaped”.

Dr. Robert Redfield, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said Thursday that many officials who tried to warn the public about potential problems with COVID-19 vaccines were pressured into silence and that it’s high time to admit that there were “significant” side effects that made people sick.

Dr. Redfield made the remarks in a May 16 interview with Chris Cuomo on NewsNation, during which he lamented the loss of public confidence in public health agencies because of a lack of transparency around the vaccines, which he said “saved a lot of lives” but also made some people “quite ill.”

Those of us that tried to suggest there may be significant side effects from vaccines ... we kind of got canceled because no one wanted to talk about the potential that there was a problem from the vaccines, because they were afraid that that would cause people not to want to get vaccinated,” Dr. Redfield said.

In his role as head of the CDC, Dr. Redfield was part of the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed, a project to surge COVID-19 vaccine development at a time during the pandemic when little was known about the virus and rapid vaccine rollout was widely seen as key to getting the outbreak under control and lockdowns lifted.

In September 2020, a few months before the first COVID-19 vaccines were given in the United States, Dr. Redfield testified before the Senate that COVID-19 represented the “most significant public health challenge to face our nation in more than a century,” and that the prevailing view among scientists at the time was that the overall case fatality rate of the disease was somewhere between 0.4 and 0.6 percent in the United States.

While global coverage of the Gaza crisis has focused on the Israeli offensive in the southern city of Raffah of late, fierce battles have erupted in the north of the Strip over the last several days, especially in Jabalia, where the IDF military is in a fierce anti-insurgent style battle set amid narrow alleyways.

The city which lies 2.5 miles north of Gaza City saw a 'return' of Hamas fighters after the IDF months ago conquered it. It has long been deemed among the Strip's permanent refugee camps. There are reports that Israeli armor has smashed deep into the heart of the camp and city.

American ships will be required to be very close just off Gaza's coast as fighting intensifies in both the north & south of the Strip.

Hamas also appears to have stepped-up its attacks on Israeli forces in various locations, and Al Jazeera reports at least 40 Palestinian deaths over the course of the last day.

"Tanks and planes are wiping out residential districts and markets, shops, restaurants, everything. It is all happening before the one-eyed world," a resident of Jabalia identified as Ayman Rajab told a regional outlet.

The same outlet observed that this intensifying fighting is occurring in the same northern region as the US Army-built humanitarian aid pier:

"People are terrified and they’re trying to get away," Jens Laerke, UN humanitarian office spokesperson, said in Geneva, adding that most were following orders to move north toward the coast but that there were no safe routes or destinations.

As the fighting raged, the US military said trucks started moving aid ashore from a temporary pier, the first to reach the besieged enclave by sea in weeks.

Instead of U.S. President Joe Biden marking a red line in the sand demanding that Israel allow aid into Gaza via ground transportation, his inept diplomatic team sent out a plea for help to the U.S. military.

While in the U.S. Army and Army Reserves for 29 years, I thought I had seen some pretty stupid things the military was told by politicians to do. It always begins with politicians deciding the easiest, most sensible solution to a problem would have too much political baggage and cost them votes in the next election. So, they look for a politically expedient solution, one that is invariably very expensive and convoluted.

Attempting a Military Solution for a Political or Diplomat Problem—AGAIN!!!

In this vein, all too often, politicians turn to the U.S. military for a solution to a non-military problem. Then some A-type personality in the military presents a hair-brained idea to the politicians, probably never thinking that the idea would be accepted. Then it is accepted to get the politicians out of a jam, and the next thing you know is that the Rube Goldberg, crazy idea is being funded.

This unbelievable scenario is what has happened with getting humanitarian aid into Gaza for the starving survivors of the Israeli genocide of Gaza. Instead of U.S. President Joe Biden marking a red line in the Israel/Gaza/Egypt sand demanding that Israel allow into Gaza the miles of tractor-trailer loads of food and medicine that have been stalled for months at the Rafah border crossing, Biden's inept diplomatic team sent out a plea for help to the U.S. military.

Palestinians in Gaza and citizens around the world will not forget that miles of supplies are just feet away from Gaza at the Rafah crossing and the U.S. will not use its pressure on Israel to open the gates at Rafah.

Graduation is over so the campus protests have cooled down.

However, people have not stopped being less angry about Gaza. And the cops have not stopped being less brutal towards anyone who dares question Israel.

Jews really are right about the goyim. Imagine that Americans watched the cops sit and allow BLM to burn down entire cities, and now these very same cops are dressed in riot gear and rushing people and beating the shit out of them on the streets just for questioning the Israeli government.

An attack President Joe Biden hurled at former President Donald Trump in 2019 has now come back to haunt him five years later. Back then, Biden had claimed that Trump deserved to be impeached over a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump suggested that he would withhold promised financial and military aid if some conditions were not met.

In Biden’s own words: President Trump withheld Congressionally appropriated aid to Ukraine unless they granted him a political favor. It’s the definition of quid pro quo. This is no joke — Trump continues to put his own personal, political interests ahead of the national interest. He must be impeached.”

The president’s tweet has now resurfaced after he said on Wednesday that he would withhold military aid already promised to Israel and approved by Congress if the Jewish nation carries out its planned invasion of Rafah.

According to critics, Biden should also get impeached over his threat to Israel.

“Joe Biden endorses his own impeachment,” Red State’s Bonchie pointed out.

President Joe Biden said on Friday that he would not be participating in more presidential debates, which former President Donald Trump already consented to.

Trump had announced the agreement which would have had NBC News and Telemundo host a debate between the two major presidential candidates.

“I have accepted a fourth Presidential Debate against Crooked Joe Biden, this time with NBC & Telemundo,” Trump revealed, adding, “It is important as Republicans that we WIN with our Great Hispanic Community, who Biden has devastated with Crippling Inflation, High Gas Prices, Crime in our Streets, and Border Chaos.”

“This Fourth Debate will go along with our previously accepted Presidential Debates on CNN, ABC, and Fox. This is all in addition to our accepting an invitation from Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum of Fox News to host the Vice Presidential Debate at Virginia State University, or another venue, in Virginia, to be named later. These are the Debates that Voters have been asking for, and these are the Debates that Voters will get!” he continued.

President Joe Biden is bracing himself for a family scandal splashed across headlines as his son Hunter Biden faces felony gun charges – and the real prospect of prison. Within the halls of the White House, there’s an air of tension as aides maintain a strict hands-off policy on the case, which is led by special counsel David Weiss.

Yet, whispers of worry ripple through, hinting at deeper concerns that the trial might shake the President not just politically, but emotionally too. Amidst hushed talks, insiders—speaking under the cloak of anonymity—revealed the familial burden weighing on Joe Biden, with looming fears of a possible prison sentence for his son adding to the president’s already challenging political landscape.

One of the three advisers said to POLITICO, “He worries about Hunter every single day, from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep. That will only pick up during a trial.” According to the insiders, Biden is closely monitoring his son’s legal battles, maintaining daily contact through calls or texts, according to his advisers. They confirm that this supportive routine will persist throughout the trial.

Hunter Biden's allies are reportedly looking into establishing a legal defense fund for him after his chief financial backer, Hollywood entertainment lawyer Kevin Morris, has been telling people he is running out of money to keep helping him.

The interest in a new defense fund comes just a month before Hunter Biden faces two criminal trials, both of which will start in June. It comes after similar explorations into legal funds for the president's son were considered late last year, reports NBC News, quoting multiple sources said to be familiar with last year's effort and this year's.

Four sources close to Biden said his allies have discussed the creation of a public small-donation fund, but that would be a last resort if efforts to find financial support from larger sources fail. They also said there has been no decision yet to move forward on creating a defense fund.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, one could not go five minutes without hearing the phrase “social distancing.”

The theory, according to the country’s leading scientific “experts,” was that by keeping a distance of six feet from one another, one could successfully protect the vulnerable from the COVID virus and save millions of lives.

Now, it turns out it was all a lie. 

Francis Collins, the former director of the National Insitute of Health, admitted in a closed-door interview earlier this year that he did not see any scientific evidence that social distancing was a proven method of containing the virus.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Russia may increase attacks in the northeast part of Ukraine after its gains near Kharkiv.

"Today we have about 25% of what we need to defend Ukraine," Zelensky said, according to the BBC. 

"So that Russia does not have air superiority, our fleet should have 120 to 130 modern aircraft," he added. 

Last month, President Joe Biden signed a $95 billion emergency foreign aid package to send support to Israel and Ukraine amid ongoing conflicts in both nations.

The bill contained $61 billion for Ukraine and other regional partners.

The most senior medical oncologist in Japan recently slammed the COVID-19 mRNA shots as “the work of evil” that has caused “essentially murder.”

In an interview published April 19, Dr. Masanori Fukushima, who spearheaded the first cancer outpatient clinic at Kyoto University and launched the first course in pharmacoepidemiology there, listed a slew of problems with the COVID mRNA jabs, evidencing what he called an evil “abuse of science.”

He pointed out that “turbo cancers,” a kind “previously unseen by doctors” that progress extremely quickly and are typically in stage four by the time they are diagnosed, have started to appear after the jab rollouts. These “turbo cancers” are emerging along with excess mortality due to cancer in general, which Fukushima says cannot be explained only by lost opportunities for screenings or treatment during the COVID outbreak.

As a tragic example of the fatal danger of the COVID shots, the oncologist shared the story of a 28-year-old man who was found dead by his wife when she tried to wake him in the morning, five days after he received his second Pfizer shot.

“You know you’re flying over the target when you’re getting flak,” the WWII saying goes.  It means, “If you’re not a threat, they can safely ignore you, but when you’re directly over the target, they start shooting.”

United Sovereign Americans (USA), a 100% volunteer, nonpartisan organization, has been working for the last two years to expose errors and demand honest and accurate elections.  They now share their technical and legal expertise with teams in 24 states. Their peer-reviewed audits of state voter rolls have found millions of errors that violate multiple federal election laws. Recently they joined an election lawsuit in federal court in Maryland, alleging that diluting real votes with fake and illegal votes violates our civil rights to honest elections. More lawsuits are on the way.

Looks like their efforts have struck a nerve.

It’s obvious that anyone elected in this new climate of “anything goes” voting rules probably wouldn’t want those rules to change.  Instead, laws have consistently been weakened to the point where absentee ballots are mailed like sportswear circulars.  In some states, signature verification on mail-in ballots has been reduced to a bored election worker clicking a mouse in one or two seconds, when a proper review takes up to thirty seconds.

This means that anyone who picks up an unclaimed ballot from an apartment complex’s postage room floor can fill it out with no fear of getting caught.  In a blockbuster poll that should have made front-page national news, Rasmussen Reports revealed that “21% of Likely U.S. voters who voted by absentee or mail-in ballot in the 2020 election say they filled out a ballot, in part or in full, on behalf of a friend or family member, such as a spouse or child,” and “17% of mail-in voters say that in the 2020 election, they cast a ballot in a state where they were no longer a permanent resident.”

This is more than enough to have changed the results in 2020, and to confirm Americans’ suspicions that our elections are out of control.  Inaccurate voter rolls allow for millions of extra votes to be cast by unscrupulous actors, as well as ordinary citizens with an extra ballot in their mailbox.

An Interior Department staffer abruptly resigned on Wednesday in protest over the Biden Regime’s stance on the Israel-Gaza war.

Lily Greenberg Call, a Jewish special assistant to the chief of staff in the Department of Interior, resigned in protest and blasted Joe Biden in a phone call with the AP.

In a phone interview with The Associated Press, Call blasted Joe Biden’s comments on Israel and Jews.

“In an interview with The Associated Press, Call pointed to comments by Biden, including at a White House Hanukkah event where he said “Were there no Israel, there wouldn’t be a Jew in the world who was safe” and at an event at Washington’s Holocaust Memorial last week in which he said the Oct. 7 Hamas-led attacks that triggered the war were driven by an “ancient desire to wipe out the Jewish people.”” The AP reported.

“He is making Jews the face of the American war machine. And that is so deeply wrong,” Call told the AP, noting that ancestors of hers were killed by “state-sponsored violence.”

A United Nations scientist has called for billions of human beings around the world to be “culled” in order to “save the planet” from “global warming.”

UCL Professor Bill McGuire, a United Nations (UN) “agenda contributor,” warns that the only “realistic way” to “avoid catastrophic climate breakdown” was to “cull” the human population with a “high fatality pandemic.”

The statement was issued in a post on X that was subsequently withdrawn by McGuire amid an immense backlash.

However, he argues that he deleted the post because people took it the wrong way, “not because I regret it.”

McGuire was previously a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), a British government body that advised politicians on the Covid pandemic response.

This Pandemic Treaty, if implemented, will change the global landscape and strip you and me of some of our most basic rights and freedoms.

Make no mistake, the WHO Pandemic Treaty is a direct attack on the sovereignty of its member states, as well as a direct attack on your bodily autonomy.”
