China’s foreign ministry has expressed regret over what it called a civilian balloon straying into United States airspace.

In a statement on Friday, the ministry said the balloon suspected by the US of conducting surveillance was a civilian “airship” used for research, mainly for meteorological purposes.

The statement said the airship has limited steering capability and “deviated far from its planned course” because of winds.

The Pentagon had earlier said it was “tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon”.

As stories rise from across the country of otherwise perfectly healthy people suddenly suffering major heart problems, medical pundits are trying to dismiss any possibility that the largely untested COVID-19 vaccines may have played a role in such health issues.

As reported by Just The News, one prominent example is MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian. On Saturday, the 44-year-old host finally described to her viewers the nature of the “health scare” that forced her off the air for several weeks; on December 20th, she began suffering intermittent chest pains which spread to her shoulder 10 days later. After a trip to the emergency room, she was told that she was suffering from pericarditis “brought on by a virus, a literal common cold.” She spent four nights at the hospital, during which her heart had to be partially drained.

Vossoughian was then transferred to NYU Langone before finally being allowed to go home on January 4th; just three days later, she returned to the emergency room after feeling “a flutter” in her heart. She was subsequently diagnosed with myocarditis. The doctors continued to tell her that “it was still just the cold doing all this.” A cardiologist at NYU, Greg Katz, claimed that her condition was brought on by an “overactive immune response” to a cold.

As the House GOP plans numerous investigations into Joe Biden’s various scandals, ranging from government misconduct to his family’s questionable business ties, a far-left dark money group is organizing to deliberately sabotage those probes.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Congressional Integrity Project (CIP) plans to regularly send information to the Biden White House to help combat the probes, including opposition research on the Republicans leading the investigations, poll data, and political ads.

The CIP, first created in 2020, does not reveal the identities of its donors. However, tax filings reveal that most of its funding comes from another far-left group, the Sixteen Thirty Fund (STF), which has been described as the “indisputable heavyweight of Democratic dark money.” Since 2020, STF has given over $1.5 million to the CIP, the same amount of money that CIP has since reported in revenues in the same time period.

Although STF similarly does not reveal its donors’ identities, far-left billionaire George Soros has made contributions of at least $24.9 million to STF in just the year 2021 alone, as revealed by the group’s database on grants.

Hunter Biden has been accused of attempting to intimidate John Paul Mac Isaac after the Delaware computer repair shop owner sued the president's son for defamation. 

Hunter, 52, first came into contact with Mac Isaac in April 2019, when he left his laptop at his shop - and never returned to collect it.

The laptop has, since the eve of the 2020 election, been a source of fascination, with its incriminating photos of a drug-addled Hunter with prostitutes seized upon, and the wayward businessman's communications and accounts pored over for evidence that Joe Biden was involved in suspect international deals.

In ritzy Dana Point, CA an emergency room doctor was riding his bicycle on Pacific Coast Highway. He was stopped at a red light in the bike lane when the driver of a Lexus hit him at high speed, sending the doctor flying perhaps 40 feet through the air. The PoC driver then did a u-turn, got out, yelled about “white privilege,” and attacked the prostrate white doctor with a knife and a BB gun. Brave onlookers apprehended the maniac, but the poor doctor died in his own emergency room.

China claimed Friday to be launching its own investigation into the suspected spy balloon flying over the US — as Canada said it was also monitoring “a potential second incident.”

The Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing was “verifying” the situation after US officials confirmed they had “communicated” the “seriousness with which we take this issue.”

The ministry’s spokesperson, Mao Ning, said China hopes “that both sides can handle this together calmly and carefully.”

“I would like to emphasize that until the facts are clarified, speculation and hype will not be helpful to the proper resolution of the issue,” Mao told a daily briefing Friday.

Across the white West—Spain, France, Ireland, England, and of course, the United States—illegal aliens are swarming across borders in numbers that constitute nothing less than an invasion. And though a shot won’t be fired, the consequences will be indistinguishable from military conquest. Meanwhile, the Ruling Classes do nothing to stop them. Indeed, they attack those who would stop our suicidal invade-the-world-invite-the-world foreign policy as the real enemies, the way disgraced British Prime Minister Boris Johnson attacked Tucker Carlson for “intimidating” GOP on Ukraine, as his own country is invaded [‘What is it with this guy?’ Boris Johnson urges GOP to ignore Tucker Carlson on Russiaby Joel Gehrke, Washington Examiner, February 1, 2023]. The question: why. Why are the Ruling Classes in all these countries simply allowing their countries to be invaded, as VDARE’s Patrick Cleburne askedat the same time? The only possible answer: The Great Replacement requires a multi-front, coordinated attack.

I watched the recent body camera footage in which five Black Memphis police officers had brutally beaten a Black driver by the name of Tyre Nichols. He is alleged to have been driving recklessly, even though Memphis Police Chief, Cerelyn Davis, said she could not confirm that reckless driving played a role in the incident.

When approached by officers and removed from his car, Nichols resisted by not laying down fully on his stomach. He persisted in turning and raising his torso to question the officers and to verbally protest what was happening to him. Officers continued to order Nichols to get on the ground, but were unable to hold him down as he repeatedly turned and raised his torso. One officer attempted to use his Taser but was unsuccessful in doing so. Nichols quickly got up and fled on foot with officers pursuing him. Once they caught up to him about a half-mile away, they proceeded to punch, slap, kick, pepper spray, and even baton him, apparently thinking that he was still resisting arrest. Why five burly officers could not subdue Nichols without having to cave his head in is beyond me!

After handcuffing Nichols, he was sat down and propped up against one of the patrol cars. Although paramedics were called to the scene, none of the officers rendered any immediate medical aid to him. Nichols was transported to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition. On January 10, 2023, Tyre Nichols died as a result of the officer’s use of force. An autopsy report later revealed that Nichols had “suffered excessive bleeding caused by a severe beating.”

Failed internet father figure and failed pill addict Jordan Peterson has informed the goyim that it is really, really time for a war with Iran, and has encouraged his followers to call their Congressmen and demand an immediate attack on the country. The ghoulish weirdo Peterson said that we have to overthrow the Iranian government to promote women’s rights.

Peterson revealed in 2020 that he was addicted to benzos. He then went to Russia for some reason and had a coma induced so that he would not have to suffer the pain of withdrawal symptoms. This is the most extreme pussy way to deal with drug addiction, and you actually risk serious brain damage.

It’s not clear whether the coma gave Peterson brain damage, but when he got out of rehab he signed one of these death contracts with Ben Shapiro. He then went to Israel to promote Jewish world domination.

The fact that Peterson is pushing war with Iran really shows how this conservative scam works. Peterson is best known for whining about tranny pronouns. He eventually said that he would use the pronouns out of respect, but that he doesn’t think he should be forced to use the pronouns if he doesn’t want to.

The House voted Thursday along party lines to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee through a resolution that cites her past derogatory remarks about Jewish people and anti-Israel posture.

The vote passed 218 to 211, with all Democrats voting against the resolution and one Republican, Rep. David Joyce (R-OH), voting “present.”

The vote is a win for House Republicans, who hold a slim majority in the chamber, after a few from their conference initially objected to the resolution. The three who had vocally opposed it, Reps. Victoria Spartz (R-IN), Nancy Mace (R-SC), and Ken Buck (R-CO), had flipped their vote by Thursday morning.

Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN), a key player in the successful whip operation, told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement that Omar, a fellow Minnesotan, had “no place representing American interests” on the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Project Veritas on Thursday released a new segment of undercover footage of Pfizer director Jordon Walker in which the Director of R&D within the company's mRNA operation expressed concern over how the COVID-19 vaccine may be affecting women's reproductive health.

"There is something irregular about the menstrual cycles. So, people will have to investigate that down the line," Walker told an undercover journalist he thought he was on a date with.

"The [COVID] vaccine shouldn’t be interfering with that [menstrual cycles]. So, we don’t really know," he added.

Walker also hopes we don't discover that "somehow this mRNA lingers in the body and like -- because it has to be affecting something hormonal to impact menstrual cycles," adding "I hope we don’t discover something really bad down the line…If something were to happen downstream and it was, like, really bad? I mean, the scale of that scandal would be enormous."

A lawyer for President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, urged state and federal agencies in a letter on Feb. 1 to probe what he said were attempts by close allies of former President Donald Trump and others to “weaponize” the contents of a laptop that an electronics repair shop owner says was dropped off at his Delaware store in 2019.

The letters from Hunter Biden’s attorneys mark the first time he and his legal team have publicly acknowledged that it was his personal data found on the laptop.

The letters were sent by Hunter Biden’s lawyer Abbe Lowell to the Delaware attorney general, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

They call for an investigation into former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon, campaign lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as well as Giuliani’s own lawyer, Robert Costello, and the owner of the Wilmington computer repair shop, John Paul Mac Isaac, who said Hunter Biden dropped a laptop off at his store in April 2019 and failed to return to pick it up.

“We write on behalf of our client, Robert Hunter Biden, to request an investigation into the following individuals for whom there is considerable reason to believe violated various federal laws in accessing, copying, manipulating, and/or disseminating Mr. Biden’s personal computer data,” states the letter (pdf) to the DOJ’s top national security official, Matthew Olsen.

Relief is spreading among economic analysts and stock market experts. Energy prices are decreasing noticeably. The energy supply this winter seems secure; in Europe, government support for consumers and producers is available if needed. China is turning away from its zero-covid policy, and production is ramping up again. High goods price inflation is still a major concern for consumers and producers, but central banks are delivering at least some interest rate hikes to hopefully reduce currency devaluation. So should we bid farewell to crisis and recession worries? Unfortunately, no.

The Ukrainian government is sounding the alarm ahead of the upcoming one-year Feb.24 anniversary of the Russian invasion, saying that Kremlin forces are amassing more troops on the border in preparation for a major new offensive. The warnings comes amid widespread reports that Russian forces are gearing up for an inevitable Spring offensive.

In a Wednesday interview with a French media outlet Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov claimed that Putin has ordered a whopping 500,000 troops to ready the new assault in the coming weeks.

"Officially, they announced 300,000, but when we see the troops at the borders, according to our assessments it is much more," he said.

And separately, Yuriy Sak, a senior defense ministry official, told NBC News on Thursday that "We should understand that the threat of a new and another offensive will remain until we defeat Russia."

Ukraine expects the attacks to happen from the east and south: "As their main forces are concentrated in the east, we do expect them to begin an offensive there, perhaps around Bakhmut," Sak said.

And President Zelensky in his latest evening video address to the nation said, "The situation has become tougher" in the area, and further that "The enemy is trying to achieve at least something now to show that Russia has some chances on the anniversary of the invasion."

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has criticized the decision by his NATO allies to provide Ukraine with over 300 heavy tanks to prolong the war against Russia, calling it a "high-risk move."

"I personally can’t say that sending tanks will resolve this issue," Erdogan told state broadcaster TRT during a Wednesday interview. "This is a high-risk endeavor and will only line the pockets of gun barons," he added.

The Turkish leader also said his nation would continue talks with both Russia and Ukraine as part of efforts to find a path to peace.

Erdogan’s criticism of his western allies is the latest show of discord between Ankara and NATO, as over the past year, Turkey has been holding up Sweden and Finland’s ascension to the war alliance. The two Nordic nations formally applied to join NATO last May, abandoning decades of neutrality. Any country joining NATO requires the unanimous approval of member states.

Tensions recently spiked between Ankara and Stockholm after Danish-Swedish extremist Rasmus Paludan burned copies of the Quran on two separate occasions last week.

"Despite warnings, Sweden turned a blind eye to the Quran burning, and police protected the perpetrators. Hate crimes against Muslims are not acceptable," Erdogan said, adding that "an apology from Sweden won’t fix issues."

French labor unions have been holding several days of mass strikes and protests against raising the retirement age, in a test of the momentum driving defiance to Emmanuel Macron’s signature economic reform... which is hardly surprising: France is one of the biggest "western" bastions of socialism.

As Bloomberg reports, the country’s rail operator, SNCF, said only one-third of high-speed TGVs were running and urged people to work from home. Subway and commuter trains serving the capital were severely disrupted, with limited service on most lines. Many schools were also closed.

Protesters also blocked three oil refineries operated by TotalEnergies SE and strikes by Electricite de France SA’s workforce took more than 3 gigawatts of nuclear-reactor capacity offline. Air France-KLM’s French arm said it had scrapped 10% of short-haul flights.

When President Biden introduced his Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) last summer, he surprised the world with the extent of the climate commitments within it While supposedly aimed at inflation reduction, the legislation also provides extensive political support and funding for the green transition, providing tax cuts, subsidies, and other incentives for companies looking to use cleaner alternatives to fossil fuels. The EU has long been hailed as the leader in the switch to renewable energy, encouraging other countries worldwide to follow in its footsteps when it comes to climate pledges and policies. However, following the introduction of the IRA, pressure on the EU grew to introduce its own far-reaching, region-wide climate policy. After several months, it appears that the EU is ready to launch a transition policy that will provide the funding needed to keep up with the U.S. in the race to green.  The EU has announced plans to reduce restrictions on tax credits for renewable energy projects in response to Biden’s IRA. Following mounting public pressure to expand its climate policy following the introduction of the new U.S. law, the European Commission (EC) has stated that it aims to loosen state aid rules to encourage greater investment in production facilities in the green energy industry. However, this kind of major policy shift requires broad support from its 27 member states, which often slows down the introduction of new laws.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has found that the US Navy is facing persistent issues maintaining many of its naval platforms.

The study was conducted on 151 cruisers, aircraft carriers, destroyers, littoral combat ships, and amphibious vessels in the navy inventory.

According to the report, the analysis of key metrics showed that 10 ship classes are experiencing sustainment challenges.

The amount needed to maintain the ships has risen by $2.5 billion, but their operating hours have significantly decreased over the last decade.

Seven of the 10 classes have also experienced an increase in cost per operating hour, with America-class amphibious assault ships, Nimitz-class carriers, and Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ships the exceptions.

The human rights group Amnesty International issued a new report on Wednesday, one year after its comprehensive report on Israeli apartheid.

“Since the organization launched a major campaign against apartheid one year ago, Israeli forces have killed almost 220 Palestinians, including 35 in January 2023 alone,” Amnesty said in the statement, adding that the Israeli system of apartheid “is causing so much suffering and bloodshed”.

Amnesty also pointed out that “the international community’s failure to hold Israeli authorities to account for apartheid and other crimes has given them free rein to segregate, control and oppress Palestinians on a daily basis”.

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) published a report in January which outlines the consequences that US arms deliveries to Ukraine had on its own stockpiles. The conclusions of the report will surely galvanise factions in the US political system that are against the sending of arms to Ukraine because Washington is not prepared for a large-scale conflict with China.

According to the report’s authors, events in Ukraine make it clear that an armed conflict between two Great Powers is bound to develop into a protracted war, and not only on the battlefield, but also in industry, which must supply the front with everything it needs without interruption from arming soldiers to high-precision missiles and bombers.

Seth G. Jones, director of CSIS’s International Security Program, wrote in another report:

“As the war in Ukraine illustrates, a war between major powers is likely to be a protracted, industrial-style conflict that needs a robust defence industry able to produce enough munitions and other weapon systems for a protracted war if deterrence fails.”

He warned that the US defence industry lacks adequate surge capacity for a major war as it is operating in a peacetime situation rather than the current competitive security environment.

“The United States has been slow to replenish its arsenal, and the DoD (Department of Defense) has only placed on contract a fraction of the weapons it has sent to Ukraine,” Jones said.

The walkout comes a day after members of Parliament approved an anti-strike bill that, if made into law, would enforce “minimum service levels” for railroads and emergency services, Julia Conley reports.

Roughly half a million British workers walked out on Wednesday in the country’s largest coordinated strike in more than a decade.

About 300,000 of the striking employees are educators, and they were joined by civil servants, railroad workers, university professors, London bus drivers, museum workers and border officials, among others, with 59 percent of Britons telling YouGov in a recent poll that they supported the walkout.

The strong support comes even as an estimated 85 percent of schools across the U.K. were closed on Wednesday. Students and parents stood on picket lines alongside teachers, whose wages have not kept up with inflation and who are struggling to teach in schools where per-pupil spending for the 2024-25 school year is now expected to be 3 percent lower than it was in 2010.

Who’s WHO?

The WHO was set up after the Second World War as the health arm of the United Nations, to support efforts to improve population health globally. Based on the concept that health went beyond the physical (encompassing “physical, mental and social well-being”), its constitution was premised on the concept that all people were equal and born with basic inviolable rights. The world in 1946 was emerging from the brutality of colonialism and international fascism; the results of overly centralized authority and of regarding people to be fundamentally unequal. The WHO constitution was intended to put populations in charge of health.

In recent decades the WHO has evolved as its support base of core funding allocated by countries, based on GDP, evolved to a model where most funding is directed to specified uses, and much is provided by private and corporate interests. The priorities of the WHO have evolved accordingly, moving away from community-centered care to a more vertical, commodity-based approach. This inevitably follows the interests and self-interests of these funders. More detail can be found on this evolution elsewhere; these changes are important to putting the proposed IHR amendments in context.

Of equal importance, the WHO is not alone in the international health sphere. While certain organizations such as UNICEF (originally intended to prioritize child health and welfare), private foundations and non-government organizations have long partnered with the WHO, the past two decades have seen a burgeoning of the global health industry, with multiple organizations, particularly ‘public-private partnerships’ (PPPs) growing in influence; in some respects rivals and in some respects partners of the WHO.

Notable among PPPs are the Gavi – the Vaccine Alliance (focused specifically on vaccines) and CEPI, an organization set up at the World Economic Forum meeting in 2017 specifically to manage pandemics, by the Bill & Melinda Gates FoundationWellcome Trust and the Norwegian Government. Gavi and CEPI, along with others such as Unitaid and the Global Fund, include corporate and private interests directly on their boards. The World Bank and G20 have also increased involvement in global health, and especially pandemic preparedness. The WHO has stated that pandemics occurred just once per generation over the past century and killed a fraction of those who died from endemic infectious diseases, but they nonetheless attract much of this corporate and financial interest.
