he attorney general of Idaho has requested that the Supreme Court lift a temporary injunction issued by a lower court that was blocking the state from enforcing its felony ban on “gender-affirming care” for adolescents.

“Gender-affirming care” includes medical, pharmaceutical, and surgical services, like hormones and gender reassignment surgery for those with gender dysphoria who wish to have an outward appearance that more closely reflects how they feel inside.

While lawsuits regarding the statute are pending, the Supreme Court overturned lower courts and permitted Idaho to implement its restriction on gender care for transgender youth on Monday.

The justices approved Attorney General Raúl Labrador’s (R-Idaho) request to limit the scope of a December district court order that had blocked the state’s prohibition.

Idaho may implement a 2023 legislation that carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence for doctors who give hormone therapies, puberty blockers, or other “gender-affirming” treatments to patients younger than 18. This is made possible by the justices’ order on Monday.

On April 1st  when as Israeli airstrike took out half the Iran embassy compound in Damascus, Syria along with Iran’s top ranking generals and 5 other officers, Israel clearly violated international law (both UN Charter Article 51 and 1961’s Vienna Convention) that protects foreign nations’ embassies, consulates and staff around the world. The targeted slain victims were all invited military advisors stationed in Syria, unlike the illegal US military occupiers refusing to leave both Syria and Iraq.

Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei responded by informing Israel and the world that it will deliver a payback “slap in the face” to Israel for its escalated aggression that is clearly a Netanyahu provocation, deliberately attempting to ignite the larger war in the Middle East in order to drag the US into World War III. Though Biden made the usual claim that US support for Israel is “ironclad,” sending US aircraft and destroyers into the area with missile ballistic defense systems to protect Israel, he also made an agreement with Iran not to intervene against Iran’s response after Iran warned the US to stay out of Tehran’s retribution in answer to Israel’s latest aggression.

There were shocking scenes on the streets of New York City on Monday as Palestinian activists set fire to an American flag being held by Israel supporters while chanting 'Death to America!' right under the noses of the NYPD. 

There were audible gasps as the Stars and Stripes being held by a pro-Israel counter-protestor was set alight and then waved in the air - as bright yellow flames could be seen coming from the flag. 

Police officers stationed at the protest outside the New York Stock Exchange could be seen wrestling the flag and stamping out the fire as it was brought to the ground. 

Moments later, a fellow protestor could be heard yelling 'Death to America'.

In an article titled “Israel vows to retaliate against Iran for missile attacks,” Axios reports that the Israeli defense minister has informed his American counterpart that Israel “has no choice” but to attack Iran for the retaliatory strike it launched in response to Israel’s deadly attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus.

“Israeli Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant told Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin Sunday that Israel has no choice but to respond to the unprecedented missile and drone attack launched by Iran over the weekend,” reports Axios, citing an anonymous US official and another unnamed source.

The state of Israel has been churning out massive lies on a daily basis for the last six months, but this whopper could wind up being the most consequential.

The more I think about it the more obnoxious I find the Biden administration’s “Gee whiz, I sure hope Israel doesn’t drag us into a giant war in the middle east” posturing and the imperial media’s facilitation of it.

CNN has a new article out titled “As Iran attacks Israel, Biden confronts an escalating Middle East crisis he had hoped to avoid,” which is a genre of story that has been coming out in slightly different iterations again and again for the past six months. Every time Israel does something that makes things more dangerous in the middle east with the assistance of the United States, the American press fall all over themselves to inform the world that the president really doesn’t want this to happen and that his feelings are very upset about it.

“For President Joe Biden, an attack on Israel launched from Iranian soil amounts to a scenario he’d greatly sought to avoid since the start of the current Middle East conflict,” writes CNN, saying the strikes “heighten the risk of a wider regional conflict that could directly draw in the United States, along with other countries.”

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has urged the collective West to become involved in the conflict with Russia and protect Kiev similar to how it aided Israel during the Iranian airstrike over the weekend. 

Zelensky issued the appeal in a Telegram post on Monday, showering praise on the “allied action” to help Israel. According to Israeli and Western claims, the vast majority of the projectiles fired by Iran were shot down before even reaching the country’s airspace, primarily by US and UK jets. 

“It demonstrated how truly effective unity in defending against terror can be when it is based on sufficient political will. Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Jordan acted together and with maximum efficiency,” Zelensky asserted.

Russia’s UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya said Western countries on Monday inadvertently exposed Kiev’s responsibility for attacks on the Zaporozhye nuclear power station, and their own involvement.

"Our Western colleagues, inadvertently spoke out today in the form of an ultimatum: Hand over control over the ZNPP and there will be no shelling of you. By doing so, they not only completely gave away Zelensky's regime, but also confessed to their own complicity in these irresponsible bombardments," he said at a UN Security Council meeting.

Nebenzya added that Russia expects that European countries will not risk their security by backing the ideas of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.

Saudi Arabia took part in downing some Iranian UAVs during Saturday’s strike on Israel, a source in the royal family has admitted in response to a report by the Israeli public broadcaster Kan.

According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Tehran’s attack involved 170 drones, more than 30 cruise missiles and more than 120 ballistic missiles. The strikes came in retaliation for the bombing of the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, that left several senior Iranian military officers dead earlier this month.

The US, UK, France and Jordan helped the IDF intercept almost all of the incoming projectiles during Saturday’s attack. According to Kan, Saudi Arabia joined in the effort as well.

“A source from the Saudi royal family, who prefers anonymity” has spoken with Kan and “subtly acknowledged” the kingdom’s role, stating that Riyadh’s air defenses automatically intercept “any suspicious entity,” according to the official website of the al-Saud dynasty.

Javier Milai plays the role of the apocalyptic Prophet. Nations are often ruled by little men blinded by their perceived power. Men who sometimes delight in playing with people’s lives and with biblical prophecies. Javier Milai is one of them. Not the only one. While the international community tries to stop the unjustifiable violence of the Israeli army against the Palestinian population, the president of Argentina Milai announces that he wants to move the headquarters of the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and then expresses his support for the reconstruction of the Third Temple of King Solomon. He concluded this adhesion by citing the prophecy that links the construction of that sacred site to the Advent of the Jewish Messiah. There is a small detail: for the reconstruction of the Third Temple, the Al Aqsa Mosque, a sacred place venerated by over 1.5 billion Muslims, would have to be demolished.

It’s a full Apocalyptic vision of the end of times. In no city do symbols matter as much as in Jerusalem. For this reason, President Milai must still be given credit for having had the courage to say what many political leaders think, from the Ashkenazi Israeli establishment and its globalist chain, from the entire US neo-dem current, from the pro-Trump neocons, from many Western elites and the people of Davos. It is a sort of cupio dissolvi that is justified in the name of the inevitability of the prophecies.

Texan Zionist Christians and Rabbis play with biblical prophecies to unleash the Apocalypse. While the conflict in the Middle East inflames and there is a risk of escalation on a regional scale, along the Texas-Israel route, a symbolic and religious “plan” has been organized for a rite that opens the doors to the Advent of the Antichrist, ‘Apocalypse.

At the center of everything there is a rite to be celebrated, five Red heifers to be burned alive on the Mount of the Uiivi, a necessary sacrifice to start the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. However, the proposed location for this temple, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, is also home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock shrine, two of the holiest sites in Islam. Obviously, the “plot” between Zionists and Texan evangelical Christians involves the destruction of two of the most important religious sites for Islam.

To accelerate the path towards the Apocalypse, Israel has imported cows from Texas, believed by some to hold the ‘key to fulfilling ancient biblical prophecy’. Reportedly, a massive altar is being prepared in Jerusalem for a ritual that dates back to the time of Moses (Musa). Steeped in religious significance, the events are capturing worldwide attention.

At the end of 2021, even before the start of the Russian special military operation, Ukraine’s military and political leadership, at the behest of the British special service MI6, established an armed formation, the Russian Volunteer Corps, on the territory of Ukraine and NATO countries.

In August 2022, this initiative was transferred to the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine (HUR). The military unit had a clear ideological coloring, a bizarre mix of Nazism and neoliberalism (more precisely, extreme transhumanism), underpinned by venality. The priority task of the unit was to carry out sabotage and reconnaissance activities in Russia.

Russian military officials have quietly been supporting Iran with weapons and information as the crisis in the Middle East escalates, it has emerged. 

A strategic alliance between the two hostile nations, reports the Washington Post, has seen Russia supply an array of artillery to Iran, including prized anti-aircraft launchers and drones. 

The reported deals are evidence of a concerning dynamic between the two nations, which experts warn show Iran is growing in strength and negotiating power as it barrels towards war. 

'It’s no longer the patron-client dynamic, where Russia holds all the leverage,' said Hanna Notte, director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

The Israeli government is furious over one of the targets struck by the Iran missile attack two nights ago.  That attack utterly smashed a secret Israeli Intelligence Base - Pictured above, in the Golan Heights.

According to Israeli sources, the heaviest damage that was inflicted on the Israeli government during Iran's retaliatory attack is the secret intelligence base in the north of the occupied Golan Heights located in Jabal al-Sheikh (Mount Hermon).

The importance and sensitivity of this place is such that the Israeli army imposed a complete media ban for this area and everything is censored and no damage assessment and public announcement is allowed.

Russian investigators have confirmed that there is a link between the perpetrators of last month’s terrorist attack in Moscow and Ukrainian nationalists, the secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolay Patrushev has said.

He reiterated Moscow’s suspicions about Ukraine’s role in the Crocus City Hall atrocity, in which over 140 people were killed.

“During the investigation, the link between the perpetrator of this terrorist attack and Ukrainian nationalists has been confirmed,” Patrushev said during a meeting of the body.

Clashes have broken out between members of the Assyrian Orthodox community and police in Sydney, Australia after a knife-wielding man attacked and stabbed a prominent cleric on Monday.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, hundreds of people gathered outside the church, presumably believing that the perpetrator was still inside. A police riot squad and a helicopter were quickly deployed to the area in an effort to contain the crowd.

As tensions rose, the mob began throwing projectiles at the officers, with authorities reporting that two were “injured and a number of police vehicles sustained damage.”

Axios reported on Monday that Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that Israel has no choice but to respond to Iran’s missile and drone attack, which came in retaliation for Israel’s bombing of Iran’s consulate in Damascus.

Gallant and Austin spoke on Sunday after President Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the US would not support an Israeli attack on Iran. The US is trying to portray the Iranian attack as a victory for Israel since most of the drones and missiles were intercepted with the help of the US, the UK, and Jordan, although some missiles got through and damaged an Israeli airbase.

But the US is also reaffirming that it will continue to defend Israel if there is another escalation. According to the Pentagon, Austin told Gallant that the US “does not seek escalation,” but he added that the US will “continue to defend Israel.”
