Ok folks, time for some controversy….

Half of you absolutely LOVE Derek Johnson, and the other half throw a fit every time I feature him.

I don’t know if he’s right about everything, but he seems to be right about much more than he’s wrong so I like him.

And I’m excited to show you his latest video because it’s absolutely spot on.

He published this after the Trump Guilty verdict was released and Derek is just smiling big time.

Why?

Because he says it had to be this way.

This was the plan all along.

This now opens up the door for the REAL ex-President criminals to now be charged.

No longer is it taboo for an Administration to go after a prior President.

In last Wednesday's blog I pointed out that three events could be examples of a covert warfare currently under way: the recent drone attack on a Russian early warning radar at Aramvir, the alleged incursion of a specialist team into a Raytheon facility in Tuscon (which, I hasten to add, may just be a completely fabricated story), and the recent murder of a Chchen man. As I pointed out in that blog, we're looking at a string of ifs, at least, with respect to those articles.

However, there is a bit of confirmation that something is going on by  U.S. Navy Admiral Daryl Caudle, according to this story shared by K.M.:

To address its continuing recruitment crisis, the British Army is considering enlisting those with autism or a previous mental health diagnosis.

The service reportedly directed outsourcing giant Capita to formulate a plan to potentially hire those who would normally face a blanket ban in the British Army.

Under current rules, applicants who have autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or a history of depression are outright rejected.

But a report by The Telegraph said the army is pushing to reverse this policy, with plans to reassess its medical requirements by refining questions on ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and mental health.

Aspiring soldiers with autism or ADHD account for more than 500 failed applications in the British Army each year.

Despite a shoddy prosecution and questionable “star” witness, the jury in Trump’s New York criminal case found him guilty on all 34 charges. This came after the judge gave the jury bizarre instructions that seemingly undermined every criminal case in American history.

Millions of Americans are outraged. Joe Biden is already using this to prop up his failing campaign.

But Trump is not staying quiet. He immediately made a video and posted it online. He issued his official response to the Democrat-led prosecution. And he gave a clarion call to every American who fears for his country.

From Daily Wire:
“This is the final battle,” Trump said in black-and-white video posted to Truth Social. “With you at my side, we will demolish the deep state, we will expel the war mongers from our government. We will drive out the globalists, we will cast out the communists, Marxists, and fascists; we will throw off the sick political class that hates our country. We will rout the fake news media and we will liberate America from these villains once and for all.”

WATCH: @realDonaldTrump just posted this video:

Trump called the 2024 Election the “final battle” for our country. Democrats abused the legal system to convict him of crimes—all to undermine the upcoming election. Trump vowed to “demolish the deep state” and expel the “warmongers,” “communists,” and “fascists” from the government.

To those at the bottom of America’s economic pyramid, it feels like the economy has already collapsed. When you can’t afford to put a roof over your head and you barely have enough food to eat, nothing else really matters.

The UK has once again concluded that it will not suspend arms exports to Israel, after reviewing a further three months of the Israeli military’s presence in Gaza.

The latest review examined Israel’s bombardment of the enclave until 24 April, including the killing of three British aid workers.

“The business secretary has therefore decided our position on export licences remains unchanged. This is consistent with the advice ministers have received. As ever, we will keep the position under review,” reads a foreign office statement seen by The Guardian.

The statement adds that the UK operates a “robust and thorough assessment of arms export licence applications” and would not grant a license if there is a “clear risk” that the arms might be used to violate international law.

NATO's recent move to strengthen its eastern border is aimed at deterring Russia, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Sunday, adding that it should be clear to Moscow that the alliance will be ready to defend itself if necessary.

Speaking at the Eastern German Economic Forum also attended by Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte, Scholz said Germany has played a leading role in NATO's presence in the Baltics on Russia's border, stretching back nearly a decade.

"And because the threat from Russia will continue, we and other allies decided last year to deploy additional units to the Baltic states and to station an entire brigade there permanently in future," Scholz said, according to a speech manuscript.

"But this turnaround in security policy is necessary to show Russia: We are prepared to defend every square inch of NATO territory against attacks."

He said diplomacy would only be successful from a position of strength, adding that it was absolutely vital that Baltic states could fully rely on NATO allies jumping to their defence in the event of a Russian attack.

Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has threatened Palestinians in the West Bank that Israel could turn their cities “into ruins like the Gaza Strip.”

Smotrich’s threat comes as violence from Israeli soldiers and settlers in the West Bank against Palestinians continues to escalate. Since October 7, over 500 Palestinians have been killed in the territory.

In a video posted on May 30, Smotrich addressed his “neighbors beyond the fence” in the West Bank cities of Tulkarem, Nur al-Shams, Shuweika, and Qalqilya.

“We will turn you into ruins like in the Gaza Strip if the terror you are inflicting on the settlements continues. Terrorism against the citizens of Israel must stop,” Smotrich said, according to HuffPost.

Smotrich, leader of the Religious Zionism party, is a settler himself and holds another minister position in the Defense Ministry that gives him the power to expand settlements in the West Bank, essentially making him the occupation governor of the territory.

As the November elections approach, a new poll reveals that the vast majority of Americans across the political spectrum are deeply concerned about the deliberate spread of disinformation on platforms controlled by Big Tech.

A national survey commissioned by the media reform group Free Press found that 79 percent of people polled worry the information they are seeing online is “false, fake, or a deliberate attempt to confuse.” As serial liar Donald Trump prepares to face off against embattled President Joe Biden, 76 percent of those polled said they are concerned about misinformation regarding the presidential election. The poll also finds that large majorities are especially worried about coverage of local elections in their own communities.

The past decade saw the unprecedented rise of online disinformation as public trust in corporate media outlets eroded. Local newsrooms collapsed under pressure from both social media and vulture capitalists who swept in to gut struggling outlets. Artificial intelligence, or AI, programs such as ChatGPT have emerged as convenient but extremely controversial — and often incorrect — sources of information. Other countries have already struggled with AI generated “deep fakes” in their own elections this year. Potential voters have plenty of reasons to feel uneasy about the rapidly changing media landscape.

The Geneva International Peace Research Institute, GIPRI, submitted a communication to the International Criminal Court (ICC), signed by two Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research (TFF) Associates, Professor Richard Falk and TFF director Jan Oberg, urging the Court to investigate the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen for complicity in war crimes in the occupied Palestine territories including Gaza. 

On May 22, GIPRI sent a communication to the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC saying that reasonable grounds exist to believe that "the unconditional support of the President of the European Commission to Israel – military, economic, diplomatic and political – has enabled war crimes" and the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

They said that the various human rights and prominent academics and experts in international criminal law endorsed the communication and urged the prosecutor to launch investigations based on the information they provided against Von der Leyen.

The Islamic Health Committee on Saturday reported that 16 children were injured in an Israeli air strike on the south Lebanon town of Siddiqine.

The wounded children, aged between four and 14, were transported to hospitals in the region for treatment, a source in the Islamic Health Committee told AFP.

Lebanon's state-run National News Agency reported that the strike on the town, located inland from the coastal city of Tyre, was among several conducted by "Israel" on Saturday, resulting in seven people being wounded.

The Israeli military claimed that its fighter jets targeted "significant Hezbollah assets" in various areas of southern Lebanon, yet all of those who were affected by the strike were children.

Saudi Arabia will not attend the Swiss-hosted peace conference on Ukraine in June because Russia will not be represented, German news agency DPA reported on Sunday, citing Saudi diplomatic sources.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's visit to Saudi Arabia, scheduled for past Saturday, may now take place after the "peace conference" in Switzerland, the report read. Riyadh has not yet officially announced its decision not to attend the conference.

Switzerland will host the summit on Ukraine not far off from the city of Lucerne from June 15-16. In April, the spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Bern, Vladimir Khokhlov, told Sputnik that Russia was not invitied to the summit, adding that Moscow had no plans to participate in the event even if invited.

China and Brazil have also refused to take part in the conference. Even Washington, despite being its main proponent, cannot say who will represent the US. President Joe Biden is due to attend a Hollywood fundraising gala for his re-election campaign instead.

The State Department under Antony Blinken falsified a report to "absolve Israel of responsibility for blocking humanitarian aid flows into Gaza," the Guardian reports.

Blinken had his underlings overrule the advice of the State Department's own experts on the issue to ensure that US weapons kept flowing to Israel to aid in their ethnic cleansing campaign.

This week may go down as the week that saw the collective Western leadership being self-indicted as criminally insane.

First of all, we see United States President Joe Biden declaring that the massacre of civilians in Gaza does not “cross any red lines” that might bar further crucial American support for the Israeli regime.

Then we have Biden and other Western political figures declaring their permission for the Ukrainian regime to strike Russian territory with long-range NATO weapons. This is the same regime that glorifies the Nazi Third Reich and collaborators in World War Two genocide, and whose president canceled elections, now becoming a dictator.

It is entirely fitting – and heinous – that accomplices to genocide in Gaza are also recklessly pushing for global nuclear conflagration.

The abhorrent public position of Biden and other Western leaders should be a shocking wake-up call for citizens all around the world as to the criminal nature of these powers. It is all the more sickening given the arrogant claims of the US to be the “leader of the free world” and narcissistic notions about “Western, American, European values”.

RUSSIA plans to destroy Britain and France’s nuclear powers in just one day if WW3 unfolds, a pro-Kremlin propagandist has warned.

Dr Yuri Baranchik has ranted about “Operation Unthinkable”, a plan to be used if Putin’s war in Ukraine descends into global conflict.

Baranchik, who works for the pro-Putin Moscow RUSSTRAT Institute, said Russian forces would “eliminate the nuclear potentials of Britain and France“.

This would weaken Europe significantly within just 24 hours of a nuclear WW3 – targeting Britain and France‘s nuke submarines and warheads.

Designed to “pull out the nuclear teeth of Britain and France”, Baranchik says it would seriously damage Nato‘s nuclear power.

He boasted on Telegram: “Instead of a protracted war of attrition, in one day we deprive France and Britain of their nuclear weapons and destroy the whole of Europe.

Boeing’s largest factory is in “panic mode”, according to workers and union officials, with managers accused of hounding staff to keep quiet over quality concerns.

The US plane maker has been grappling with a safety crisis sparked by a cabin panel blowout during a flight in January, and intense scrutiny of its production line as regulators launched a string of investigations.

Its site at Everett, Washington – hailed as the world’s biggest manufacturing building – is at the heart of Boeing’s operation, responsible for building planes like the 747 and 767, and fixing the 787 Dreamliner.

One mechanic at the complex, who has worked for Boeing for more than three decades, has claimed it is “full of” faulty 787 jets that need fixing.

China’s defense minister has warned the US over the deployment of ballistic missiles in the Asia-Pacific region, stressing that there are “limits” to Beijing’s restraint in dealing with such acts of provocation in the South China Sea.

Dong Jun raised the alarm at an international security forum in Singapore on Sunday in a clear reference to the United States and the Philippines, which have been boosting their military ties to contain what they claim to be China’s growing military might and influence in the strategic body of water.

“China has maintained sufficient restraint in the face of rights infringements and provocation, but there are limits to this,” Dong told the Shangri-La Dialogue, which is attended by defense officials from around the world.

The two longstanding treaty allies, the United States and the Philippines have been working to consolidate their alliance and partnership in the Asia-Pacific region, which has enraged Beijing.

Bombshell testimony from Dr. Anthony Fauci reveals he made up the six foot social distancing rule and other measures to ‘protect’ Americans from covid.

Republicans put out the full transcript of their sit down interview with Fauci from January just days before his highly-anticipated public testimony on Monday.

They plan to grill him about covid restrictions he put in place, that he admitted didn’t do much to ‘slow the spread’ of the virus.

Kids’ learning loss and social setbacks have been well documented, with one National Institute of Health (NIH) study calling the impact of mask use on students’ literacy and learning ‘very negative.’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday that Hamas's destruction was part of an Israeli plan presented by US President Joe Biden to end the war on Gaza.

Netanyahu’s statement came a day after Biden said Israel had proposed a new roadmap towards a full ceasefire in Gaza in exchange for Hamas releasing Israeli captives.

"Israel's conditions for ending the war have not changed: The destruction of Hamas military and governing capabilities, the freeing of all hostages and ensuring that Gaza no longer poses a threat to Israel," Netanyahu said.

"Israel will continue to insist these conditions are met before a permanent ceasefire is put in place. The notion that Israel will agree to a permanent ceasefire before these conditions are fulfilled is a non-starter.”

Earlier this week, I sat down to write a piece about a campus safety officer at a public college in New York who told pro-Palestinian protesters that he supported genocide. “Yes I do, I support genocide,” the officer said, after a protester accused him of this at a graduation event at the College of Staten Island, part of the public City University of New York (Cuny) system, last Thursday. “I support killing all you guys, how about that?”

It’s possible that you didn’t hear about this incident: while it was covered by a few outlets, including the Associated Press, it didn’t get a huge amount of press. It certainly wasn’t splashed all over the front page of the New York Post the way it would have been if that guard had made the same comment about Israelis. The New York Times, which has written a lot about safety on college campuses – and published a piece on anti-Israel speeches at Cuny just a couple of days before this incident – didn’t seem to deem it newsworthy. And the White House didn’t chime in with a horrified statement about anti-Palestinian bias on campuses. After all, this wasn’t a big deal, right? It was just a security guard saying he supports genocide. Which, it should be clear now, is essentially the same position as the US government.

So, yes, that was what I was going to write about. But a couple of paragraphs in, I stopped writing. I’d had a quick look at Twitter/X, you see, and it was full of the horrors of the tent massacre in Rafah, where an Israeli airstrike killed at least 45 people in an area where displaced Palestinians were sheltering. That, of course, is already old news: more killing has followed the slaughter on Sunday night – and Israel has said it plans many more months of this.

The images out of Gaza have been unrelentingly traumatic, but the slaughter in Rafah was just unbearably upsetting. Reports of decapitated babies. Charred children. People burned alive. All just days after the International court of justice (ICJ) ordered Israel to halt its military offensive in Rafah. All while the US government makes excuse after excuse for Israel’s flagrant breaches of international law, which Israel said was just a “tragic mistake”.
