The Cascadia subduction zone is a convergent plate boundary that stretches from northern Vancouver Island in Canada to Northern California in the United States.

According to many scientists, the next rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone will spell the worst natural disaster in the history of North America

So those interested in tremor and seismic swarms will have noticed an episode under North Vancouver Island that has been progressing for 9 days.

2023 starts with collective NATO in Absolutely Freak Out Mode as Russian Defense Minister Shoigu announces that Russian Navy frigate Admiral Gorshkov is now on tour – complete with a set of Mr. Zircon’s hypersonic business cards.

The business tour will encompass the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean, and of course include the Mediterranean, the Roman Empire’s former Mare Nostrum. Mr. Zircon on the prowl has absolutely nothing to do with the war in Ukraine: it’s a sign of what happens next when it comes to frying much bigger fishes than a bunch of Kiev psychos.

The end of 2022 did seal the frying of the Big Ukraine Negotiation Fish. It has now been served on a hot plate – and fully digested. Moscow has made it painfully clear there’s no reason whatsoever to trust the “non-agreement capable” declining superpower.

Ever since covid “vaccines” were unleashed under Operation Warp Speed, excess deaths have soared across the developed world. Most notably in recent days, Japan, which fared relatively well throughout the scamdemic pre-jab, has seen soaring rates of excess death – especially after the latest covid “boosters” were released by Pfizer.

Japan’s third-dose “booster shot” program commenced on Dec. 1, 2021, resulting in 83 percent of the country being “fully vaccinated” by the end of 2022. With that came the highest number of excess deaths Japan has seen in 11 years.

“Excess deaths were approximately four times the number of those in the years 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021,” reported The Exposé.

But wait: where is 2020 in that mix? We are glad you asked because it turns out that 2020, before the so-called “vaccines” were unleashed, saw the least number of excess deaths compared to all nine years prior.

Translation: Washington calls Rome: "Send the anti-missile shield to Kiev". National security adviser Sullivan telephones Palazzo Chigi and requests the approval of the sixth military aid decree.

Sullivan wants Rome to send SAMP/T air-defense complexes to 404. Well, SAMP/T is an Aster missile family complex which in its tactical characteristics is somewhat similar to Patriot PAC2/3, with a slightly shorter range but with a fully vertical start, and demands to Rome to send it are just another manifestation of the US reluctance to satisfy mom's basement dwelling community of military porn masturbators to see further NATO technology being obliterated in 404 by Russia. But the trend on increasing NATO involvement by supply of what passes for "top of the line" technology in NATO is obvious and the US continues to exert pressure on its NATO vassals "to do something". 

To demonstrate the way brainwashed Western public is "engaged" in the narrative, here is one of many fanboys' "military analysis" UTube channels which states this:

Rep. Kevin McCarthy revealed he had “dinner” with billionaire Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum in 2018 during remarks he made on a panel with Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, a shipping heiress of Chinese descent.

McCarthy attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in 2018, the same year 45th President Donald Trump spoke to the elite group of wealthy businessmen, politicians, and journalists.

During a 30-minute panel discussion with Chao, formerly Trump’s Secretary of Transportation, and Kirstjen Nielsen, formerly Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security, McCarthy remarked on having “dinner” with Schwab during the World Economic Forum while describing what “America First” means to the audience.

“As I sat around Klaus’s dinner last night, what’s interesting is the number of countries who are now talking about their tax system,” said McCarthy while suggesting that Trump’s “America First” message meant tax cuts, economic reforms, and strong borders.

French President Emmanuel Macron, by agreeing to send AMX-10 RC wheeled tanks to Ukraine, has crossed a red line and broke a military taboo, becoming the first Western leader to make the step, the Daily Telegraph reported on Friday.

The French president has beaten his counterparts in the US, UK and Germany in sending armored vehicles to Ukraine, according to the report. He has taken the initiative in helping Kiev from London, the newspaper said.

The Daily Telegraph said Macron's New Year's television address, where he vowed to help Ukraine to win, marked a "sea change" in the president’s language. The newspaper said it appears the French president no longer believes he can negotiate with Russia.

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has promised to "match or exceed" the 2.3 billion pounds in 2022 military aid this year.

Dr. Anthony Fauci retired from his government post last month, but he has already been dragged back into the spotlight to control the narrative on Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin, who collapsed suddenly during an NFL game last week after suffering cardiac arrest.

Dr. Fauci appeared on CBS News’ “The Takeout” and was asked to address the mentions on Twitter that Hamlin’s heart problem could be related to the Covid vaccine.

“It’s hard that misinformation and disinformation, when you have a platform like social media that exponentially spreads; in its best form proper and important and value-added information can spread which is good,” Dr. Fauci responded.

French president Emmanuel Macron claimed to have been the victim of Russian hackers during his 2017 election campaign. According to him, they are to blame for the leak of internal emails from his campaign team. The alleged responsibility of the Russian secret services has never been established and the released emails have never been refuted.

The latest Twitter Files dump shows, beyond doubt, that the CIA participated in the meetings held by the FBI with various social networks. The Agency lobbied Twitter, Yahoo, Twitch, Cloudfare, LinkedIn and the Wikimedia Group to censor the voices of President Emmanuel Macron’s opposition during his re-election campaign in 2022.

Unsurprisingly, the CIA justified its action by claiming to be fighting alleged “Russian disinformation”.

Big, if true.

From The Telegraph, "Kevin McCarthy 'agreed to cut aid to Ukraine' to secure US speaker role":

Kevin McCarthy reportedly agreed to spending caps that would limit future aid to Ukraine as part of the deal with ultraconservatives that enabled him to finally be elected as House speaker on Saturday.

Mr McCarthy, a Republican, secured the position in the early hours, following a historic five-day 15-vote fight that brought Washington to a standstill.

His Right-wing opponents from the chamber's Freedom Caucus, dubbed the “Taliban 20”, wielded their opposition to US aid for Kyiv as part of their justification for voting against him in the first 14 votes.

Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, one of the most hardline aid sceptics, led the charge against Mr McCarthy’s candidacy for speaker before eventually yielding after an extraordinary confrontation in the chamber.

Paul Johnson argued in his New History of Art that Rome was “A Civilization Cast in Concrete.” But what caused ancient Roman concrete to be so much more durable than modern Brutalist concrete is one of the great historical mysteries.

The Pantheon in Rome is 1987 years old, for instance, but it remains in great shape.

An MIT press release claims that their boffins have finally figured this out.

Any five-year old child knows that if you put ten marbles into a tin can, you can only take ten marbles back out. No amount of wishful thinking, dreaming, or praying, will yield that eleventh marble from inside that can. That eleventh marble does not exist. It never did, and it never will. All discussions about the eleventh marble are the product of imagination. The eleventh marble is a fantasy.

Private central bankers issuing the public currency as interest-bearing loans operate on the belief that they can put ten marbles (dollars) into a tin can (the world) and magically get 11 marbles (dollars) back out. Thus, we may conclude that the bankers are dumber than five-year old children! But unlike five-year old children, the bankers will take your home, your business, and your nation when they don't get that eleventh marble! The spoiled child may cry and throw a tantrum, but that will be the end of their upset. The spoiled banker, however, in his or her arrogant rage that they cannot have the eleventh marble their imagination says must still be in that tin can, may start a war before they will admit that eleventh marble was never really there.

Economies are like tin cans. Before you can take a marble out, you must have put a marble in. Nobody can give you a marble that does not exist, yet this simple reality is lost to the priests of that fantastic religion called "economics" in that unholiest of temples called the Private Central Bank. Their religious doctrine seems to be that there must always be an eleventh marble inside the tin can, and that the tin can unfairly withholds that eleventh marble, indeed cheats them of their right to the eleventh marble, purely out of spite. That faith in the existence of the eleventh marble, unseen and improvable, is the article of faith the religion of banking rests on. It is far easier to burn the heretics than to question the dogma.

Today we see the bankers, having already retrieved their ten marbles from the tin can, flogging the world for that missing eleventh marble. Greece does not have that eleventh marble, so they turn to Germany and ask, "Do you have an eleventh marble", and Germany replies, "Sorry, but the bankers already took the ten marbles they put in our tin can, and we are searching for an eleventh marble ourselves. Try the Americans." The Americans, of course, have only just surrendered the last of their ten marbles back to the bankers and are looking under seat cushions for that missing eleventh marble nobody seems able to find.

But the eleventh marble will never be found. After all that mayhem brought down on the tin can there still will be no eleventh marble. It does not exist. It never did, and it never will.

The problem with all modern reserve banking systems is that the moment the first bank note goes into circulation as the proceed of a loan at interest, more money is owed to the banks than actually exists. Ten marbles have been put into the tin can, but the bankers see 11 marbles owed back to them. Sooner or later the non-existence of that eleventh marble will create a crisis of faith. People will stop believing in the religion called private central banking, and that crisis of faith will bring the system crashing down, as did the Temple of Baal in ancient times when the Syrians saw through the priests' trickery. This evil magic of creating money out of debt was a fraud all along, as fraudulent and silly as the idea that one can put ten marbles into a tin can, and take out eleven.

When President Joe Biden makes his first visit to the border with Mexico on Sunday, he will hear from aid workers helping manage the immigration crisis and from local officials desperate for more support.

What he won't see are the miserable makeshift camps dotted around El Paso that triggered headlines last month about migrants taking over the streets.

On Tuesday and Wednesday law enforcement teams moved through the downtown area, picking up migrants who had entered the country illegally.

Image removed.As a result, he may get a view of the border but not of the crisis, say infuriated border agents who wanted him to see the scale of the chaos last month.

A new report revealed that hundreds of Chicago teachers and school employees were accused of grooming, sexually assaulting, and raping students during the 2021-2022 school year. The alarming findings were exposed in the Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General's (OIG) annual report that was released this week.

The report stated that there were a total of 470 sexual allegations last year – including inappropriate touching, groomingsexual abuse, illegal sexual acts such as rape, sexual comments, and sexual electronic communication.

The OIG’s Sexual Allegations Unit (SAU) opened 447 cases investigating teachers for potential sex crimes in 2022.

The report said, "Over the past four years, the SAU’s accomplishments have been significant. It has opened 1,735 cases following allegations reported by students, alumni, parents, staff, and others. Of those, it has closed a total of 1,384 cases raising concerns of adult-on-student sexual misconduct, and substantiated policy violations in 302 investigations."

Webmaster addition: This is why Parents should have unfettered access to the schools to see what is happening to their children!

California braced for more stormy weather with rain sweeping into the northern part the state and the San Francisco Bay area, preceding a series of powerful incoming Pacific storms and raising the potential for road flooding, rising rivers and mudslides on soils already saturated after days of rain.

The National Weather Service warned of a “relentless parade of atmospheric rivers” over the coming week, producing heavy rain and mountain snow. Atmospheric river storms are long plumes of moisture stretching out into the Pacific and are capable of dropping staggering amounts of rain and snow.

The agency's Sacramento office tweeted early Sunday that parts of the Sacramento Valley were experiencing “strong winds with gusts up to 60 mph,” as well as “numerous trees and power lines down with power outages.”

More than 300,000 customers had their electricity knocked out in and around the state's capital, according to a Sacramento Municipal Utility District online map of outages overnight.

The wet weather comes after days of rain in California from Pacific storms. A series of recent weather systems have knocked out power to thousands, flooded streets, battered the coastline and caused at least six deaths.

White advocates hoped that Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter would help restore free speech. We’ve been disappointed so far. However, Mr. Musk has released the “Twitter Files” to a few select journalists, including Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss. We now know that current and former government officials and even a congressman pressured the company to ban specific accounts, control what the public could see, and bury certain stories in ways that arguably determined the 2020 presidential election.

This is not a surprise to many of us. Officials in both the Trump and Biden administrations made no secret of what they wanted. In 2019, even under Trump, then-acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan spoke about his agency’s priorities at an event co-sponsored by the conservative Heritage Foundation. “In our modern age, the continued menace of racially based violent extremism, particularly violent white supremacy, is an abhorrent affront to the nation,” he said.

Mr. McAleenan then — shockingly — praised Cloudflare’s decision to withdraw service from the website 8chan. Cloudflare’s function is to prevent denial of service attacks, which are felonies. In other words, DHS was happy for Cloudflare selectively to permit rather prevent crime.

“The Department of Homeland Security is saying that if your site is a so-called ‘cesspool of hate,’ it wants a private company to leave you unprotected from an illegal attack so your political enemies can drive you off the Internet,” said Jared Taylor at the time. He compared it to the local police deciding to look the other way if robbers attack a watch-dog-certified “hater.” Mr. McAleenan’s venture into anti-racist authoritarianism didn’t stop leftists from calling President Trump a white supremacist, nor did it prevent the President himself from being deplatformed.
