Back live Wednesday!
It may be MLK Day, but Democrats aren’t here for all that “content of character” stuff.
Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, long in the running for being the vapidest member of Congress (oops, did I just commit a crime?), has introduced legislation that could make political criticism by white people against minorities a federal crime.
In what can only be called a convoluted mess, the bill proposes that a white person who “vilifies” any non-white person and has their words end up on social media, accessible by “persons who are predisposed to engaging in any action in furtherance of a white supremacy inspired hate crime,” would themselves be committing a federal crime.
I sent an email asking the leading anti-vax debunkers to join me in calling out the corruption at the CDC for not disclosing any of the safety signals that triggered in VAERS. “Are you going to speak out or remain silent?”
Instead of criticizing the CDC (which would have been the right thing to do), they tried to debunk my article.
This led to an epic fail in plain sight that can easily be verified by anyone.
So if you had any doubts about whether these people are champions of truth and science (like they claim to be), this article will make it crystal clear: all of these people are about supporting the government narrative and trying to discredit anyone who challenges the narrative. They are NOT about exposing the truth.
I will examine each one of their responses below so you can see just how deceitful these people are.
All the evidence you need to determine who is telling you the truth is hiding in plain sight and it’s all from the CDC itself!
It’s four in the morning and you awaken with crushing chest pain. Your family calls 911 and paramedics arrive and diagnose a cardiac event. They inform you that they need to transport you forty-five minutes away because your two local hospitals have closed over the last several months. Even when you arrive at the hospital, there is massive overcrowding and they inform you that there are no ICU beds open for you in that fifty percent of the beds in the cardiac unit are “browned out” due to lack of staff. This nightmare is an all too familiar post pandemic reality about the delivery of health care in our country. This is not the expectation that the public expects in the delivery of health care in one of the richest nations in the world that has been at the cutting edge of health care innovation of the last century.
What has led to this post-pandemic nightmare is multifactorial. The pandemic changed how health care professionals are both valued and how they see themselves. During the height of the pandemic they were heroes that were endangering their lives to help the community. But now things look different.
Around 7,000 nurses on strike in New York City nursing strike is emblematic of the dire situation. Nurses, who are essential to the critical functioning of all hospitals, are entitled not only to more equitable compensation and benefits, but ultimately safer staffing ratios in all patient care settings. What’s ironic is that the strike will force these very health care systems to replace employed nurses with temporary nurses from staffing agencies, further compounding their financial woes, and ultimately, their bottom lines. Until we invest in people and their value in healthcare, we won’t be able to see light at the end of the tunnel.
A former FBI agent who investigated the 1968 assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was to present on Tuesday what he claimed was evidence never before disclosed in the case. Donald Wilson, who left the FBI in 1987, was one of two agents who on April 10, 1968, impounded a white Ford Mustang belonging to James Earl Ray, who confessed to the killing but later recanted, saying the case was a conspiracy involving federal agents. Wilson said Monday he found and kept two slips of paper from the car, which was found in Atlanta's Capitol Homes housing project, that may support Ray's claim of a government conspiracy in the April 4, 1968, assassination. "This is very significant," King's son, Dexter King, told The Atlanta Constitution. "The evidence that he has will go a long way toward disputing the official story." Ray, 70, was sentenced to life in prison for killing King He has been diagnosed with liver cancer. The King family said it supports his request for a new trial. Wilson said he did not reveal the evidence earlier because he did not trust some of the investigators in the case. He said he also feared for his family. He said he contacted the King family after hearing the slain civil rights leader's wife Coretta Scott King ask Tennessee officials in 1997 to let Ray's case go to trial.
According to the government, James Earl Ray shot Dr. Martin Luther King from that window. There is, needless to say, no physical evidence to prove this charge. James Earl Ray spent his life in prison based solely on a coerced confession which he immediately retracted. None of the ballistics tests, which were performed on the rifle James Earl Ray allegedly used, were able to link that rifle to the actual bullet that killed Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King's family does not think James Earl Ray was the killer, and recently won a civil court case proving there was a conspiracy.
Now, thanks to writer Ted Wilburn, in a story which follows, new evidence has surfaced to prove that the government and the media have been lying to the public about the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.
I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold thise truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.
I have a dream that one day out in the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character.
I have a dream today.
The events surrounding the recent tests conducted on the rifle owned by James Earl Ray have provided the most blatant example to date that our government, aided by the servile media, will simply not show We The People what the government does not want us to know.
Though the murder of Martin Luther King occurred long ago, the perpetuation of the lie is taking place this very moment, with the support and encouragement of the present administration.
The sermon which I am preaching this morning in a sense is not the usual kind of sermon, but it is a sermon and an important subject, nevertheless, because the issue that I will be discussing today is one of the most controversial issues confronting our nation. I’m using as a subject from which to preach, “Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam.”
Now, let me make it clear in the beginning, that I see this war as an unjust, evil, and futile war. I preach to you today on the war in Vietnam because my conscience leaves me with no other choice. The time has come for America to hear the truth about this tragic war. In international conflicts, the truth is hard to come by because most nations are deceived about themselves. Rationalizations and the incessant search for scapegoats are the psychological cataracts that blind us to our sins. But the day has passed for superficial patriotism. He who lives with untruth lives in spiritual slavery. Freedom is still the bonus we receive for knowing the truth. “Ye shall know the truth,” says Jesus, “and the truth shall set you free.” Now, I’ve chosen to preach about the war in Vietnam because I agree with Dante, that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality. There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal.
Webmaster addition: Was this the reason he was assassinated?
Iraq’s new prime minister told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published on Sunday that he supports a continued US troop presence in Iraq, breaking the silence on the issue since he came into office in October 2022.
“We think that we need the foreign forces,” Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani said. The US currently has about 2,500 troops in Iraq, but the presence is a divisive issue in Iraqi politics as al-Sudani’s supporters and Iraqi Shia groups have pressed him to reconsider the stationing of US forces in the country.
American troops are in the country to train government forces against ISIS, but in recent years, the US has been at odds with Iraqi Shia militias that it once allied with to fight ISIS. Tensions came to a head in January 2020 when the US killed Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in a drone strike in Baghdad.
Aviv Kohavi, the outgoing head of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), warned Friday that Israel has three operational plans drawn up to attack Iran.
In an interview on Friday, Kohavi said that Israel drew up these plans to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb, although the Pentagon recently admitted that Iran is not building a nuclear weapon.
According to Israel’s i24 News, the IDF chief of staff made the claim that Iran currently has enough enriched uranium to develop four nuclear bombs, but this is completely false. Iran has no uranium enriched at the 90% level needed for weapons grade, and any other enriched uranium can’t be used to make a bomb. Iran’s highest level of uranium enrichment is currently 60%.
Kohavi outlined the IDF’s plans for potential strikes on Iran, including attacks on its nuclear program, non-nuclear sites, and military sites. “These extend from a retaliatory strike on Iran that would be unrelated to the nuclear issue, to the taking out of the Iranian nuclear installations and auxiliary sites in that project, and if the situation eventually escalates into a full-fledged campaign then these plans also include the targeting of military sites and other assets,” he said.
An Israeli MP in the governing coalition said earlier this week that he is working on proposing a bill to annex the Jordan Valley, which constitutes about 30 percent of the occupied West Bank.
The bill by Danny Danon, who previously served as Israel's ambassador to the UN, intends to achieve the "full application of Israeli law to all areas of the Jordan Valley", including industrial and archaeological sites as well as main roads, Jewish News website reported on Wednesday.
"The annexation of the Jordan Valley is a significant issue for Israel from an historical, economical as well as crucially, from a security perspective. We know that there is support for the application of Israel's sovereignty of the Jordan Valley, both in the government's coalition as well as in the opposition," Danon said.
"I am optimistic that many MKs on both sides of the aisle will voice their support. There is no better time to apply sovereignty and we must join forces to do so imminently," he added.
Eyewitnesses said Israeli soldiers manning a temporary checkpoint at the western entrance of the town shot Ahmed Abdel-Jalil Kahla, 45, at close range after forcing him to exit his car following a verbal altercation, according to Palestinian state news agency Wafa.
The Palestinian health ministry said Kahla was shot in the neck with a live bullet and died in hospital in Ramallah soon after.
The religious and authoritarian character of the new Israeli government has given some American supporters the opportunity to hit Reset on the special relationship, and call for U.S. governmental measures to punish Israeli actions. That alarm increased this week as the new government moved to grant itself power to override supreme court rulings, so as to legalize land theft from Palestinians and exonerate Premier Benjamin Netanyahu from corruption charges. There are mass demonstrations against the changes, while opposition leaders accuse Netanyahu of destroying institutions that preserve civil rights.
But U.S. Ambassador Tom Nides sees his role as cheerleading Netanyahu, and he appeared to side with the government over any protesters during an interview this week with an Israeli broadcaster, stating repeatedly that the government has a mandate from the public.
Israel's Cognyte Software Ltd won a tender to sell intercept spyware to a Myanmar state-backed telecommunications firm a month before the Asian nation's February 2021 military coup, according to documents reviewed by Reuters.
The deal was made even though Israel has claimed it stopped defence technology transfers to Myanmar following a 2017 ruling by Israel's Supreme Court, according to a legal complaint recently filed with Israel's attorney general and disclosed on Sunday.
While the ruling was subjected to a rare gag order at the request of the state and media cannot cite the verdict, Israel's government has publicly stated on numerous occasions that defence exports to Myanmar are banned.
Myanmar’s shadow National Unity Government said it has raised more than US$100 million to fund its democracy effort and topple the junta.
About 45 per cent of the funds are from the sales of so-called Spring Revolution Special Treasury Bonds, according to Tin Tun Naing, shadow minister for planning, finance and investment. The debt does not pay interest and the capital will be repaid only when the democracy effort is successful.
Funds were also raised through the auction of military-linked properties. While buyers will not have immediate access to the properties which they had successfully bid on and paid for, the National Unity Government has promised they will be awarded the assets after the junta rule.
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, held a large conference this week that was reportedly focused on congressional elections.
The conference brought together “1,000 of our top political leaders to strategize for the 2024 election cycle,” an AIPAC official told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, one of the few news outlets to cover the event.
The two-day Washington gathering (separate from its annual conference in March) that took place on 9-10 January was closed to the press. However, prior to the meeting several political leaders issued public statements sharing their positions and plans for what they would discuss at the meeting.
The U.S. military and Hawaii officials said Friday the Air Force has returned 363 acres it leased on Molokai Island to the Department of Hawaiian Homelands, opening the possibility Native Hawaiians could move onto the land.
Air Force Col. Michal Holliday said the U.S. government has used the Molokai parcel since the Federal Aviation Administration leased it in 1960s. It was initially used to support telecommunications for the Apollo program.
Peru’s government has declared a state of emergency in the capital Lima and three other regions following protests which have killed at least 42 in recent weeks.
The measure, announced late on Saturday and in force for 30 days, authorises the army to intervene to maintain order and suspends several constitutional rights such as freedom of movement and assembly.
Jewish settlers have written racist slurs in Hebrew on the wall of the Armenian Church in Occupied East Jerusalem, Anadolu News Agency reported.
The incident took place late Thursday, the High Presidency Committee of Churches of the Palestinian Authority said.
“The racist attack by fanatical religious settlers, with sinful hands writing the words ‘Revenge and death to Arabs, Armenians and Christians’ on the walls of the Armenian Patriarchate in Occupied Jerusalem, is an inevitable result of hate speech and ugly provocation,” the Committee said.
The Committee held the Israeli government responsible for the incident with its “racist-colonial” policies.
A reminder to the participants (government officials, heads of state, heads of government, billionaire philanthropists, UN officials et al) of the 2023 WEF Davos Venue regarding what is best understood and described by Peter Koenig below, as
The Globalists’ Criminal agenda directed against humanity:
“The fact that a person who committed an act which constitutes a crime under international law, acted as Head of State or responsible government official, does not relieve him [her] from responsibility under international law. (Nuremberg, Principle III)
“Leaders, organizers, instigators and accomplices participating in the formulation or execution of a common plan or conspiracy [WEF] to commit any of the foregoing crimes [see full text] are responsible for all acts performed by any persons in execution of such plan” (Nuremberg Principle VI)
The World Economic Forum (WEF) – with its noble logo: “Committed to Improving the State of the World” (really?) – will be holding its 53rd Annual Meeting from 16-20 January 2023 in Davos Switzerland.
The official WEF Agenda for 2023 is known and available on WEF’s website. This year’s Conference goes under the honorable title of “Cooperation in a Fractured World”.
Officials within Brussels are mulling a possible ban on Pfizer officials from being allowed into the European Parliament, a report suggests.
Officials from Big Pharma company Pfizer, including the multinational’s CEO, Albert Bourla, could soon be banned from the European Parliament, a report on Friday has revealed.
It comes as the group finds itself at the centre of numerous controversies in Europe, with both senior officials within the EU and the vaccine manufacturer refusing to release details relating to the EU’s procurement of jabs during the pandemic.
According to a report by Euroactiv, the European Parliament’s committee on COVID (COVI) has now voted in favour of the ban, with only two political groups — the European People’s Party and Renew Europe — voting against the resolution.
Germany will send 19 old Piranha armored personnel carriers to Moldova free of charge, which will be used allegedly in peacekeeping missions, the head of the Moldovan Defense Ministry Anatoli Nosatii said on January 11 during the procedure of handing over the first vehicles.
He said that the vehicles would be equipped with machine guns in Moldova. According to him, all armored vehicles will arrive in the country by mid-2023.
The military budget of Moldova in 2023 increased by 68%. The republic’s authorities reported that the United States, the European Union and NATO promised to allocate more than €40 million as support for military purposes.
The Transnistrian authorities expressed their concern over Moldova’s drastic militarization course, saying that they see it as a threat to the stability of the Dnestr region.
The Kiev’s regime and its methods have nothing to do with the free world it allegedly fights for, Polish journalist Jan Engelhard wrote in an article published on January 12 on the Myśl Polska website.
The West is misleading the public that Ukraine is allegedly fighting for a free world, noted the author. In reality, the opposite takes place. In fact, the Zelensky regime banned the Russian language, destroys monuments to Russian writers and poets, replacing them with statues of odious Ukrainian nationalists, such as Stepan Bandera.
In addition to the cultural war, the Kiev authorities are waging a religious war with Russia, when Ukrainian churches belonging to the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate are being violently seized with the help of nationalist militants. In addition, the Security Service of Ukraine or SBU conducts searches in cathedrals, diocesan centers, and monasteries in order to prevent the use of religious communities as the Russian world cells.
“Behind all these phenomena, there is a clearly visible image of Stepan Bandera and his Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (an organization banned in Russia). And for some reason, no one in Poland and in the whole free world reacts to it,” stressed Engelhard.
It is a constant of History: changes are rare, but sudden. Those who bear the brunt of them are generally the last to see them coming. They perceive them only too late. Contrary to the static image that prevails in the West, international relations have been turned upside down in 2022, mainly to the detriment of the United States, the United Kingdom and France, often to the benefit of China and Russia. With their eyes riveted on Ukraine, Westerners do not perceive the redistribution of the cards.
The Swiss town of Davos (10,000 inhabitants) in the lovely canton of Graubünden is getting ready for the annual invasion of thousands of high-profile visitors from all over the world. They will attend this year's World Economic Forum meeting, arriving by private jet and special flights, while their safety will be entrusted to five thousand Swiss soldiers and policemen. Thousands of others will make their beds, cook their meals, make their coffee and tea, serve their drinks and clean their rooms. The conference participants each fork over 50,000 dollars for the privilege of attending. Most don't pay that out of their own pockets, though. The shekels are paid by the companies and organizations they represent. In case they represent governments, as many of the participants do, the money ultimately comes from taxes paid by citizens.
In short, the WEF meeting is a massive multi-million dollar operation. All participants have to promise they will not divulge what is being discussed at the many meetings. In other words, whatever is being discussed, whatever commitments and promises are made at Davos, is a secret. In this respect it is, to say the least, interesting that there are so many journalists and media executives among the participants. In doing so and in promising secrecy, they are actually betraying their professional code of ethics. Invariably, when asked about the Davos meetings, participants will answer that it just a "debating club,” where people come to see each other and to discuss themes of common interest. Really?
