"The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations." -- Thomas Jefferson

In the seventies, when the cold war was at its peak, Donald Rumsfeld was convinced that the Atlantic Ocean, off the U.S. coast, was teaming with Russian submarines. The U.S. navy couldn’t detect them because, he was convinced, the Soviets had a new ‘acoustic technology’ which made them effectively invisible. Rumsfeld went ahead and ploughed billions of dollars into developing a new technology which could detect the non-acoustic subs. But that failed and is still costing the U.S. taxpayer today. The truth was in fact, the Soviet subs just weren’t there.

The error on the part of Rumsfeld, it could be argued, still paid dividends as scaring the American public into believing a threat is real and imminent – on your doorstep in fact – is very profitable for a government which wishes to achieve two clear objectives: pouring billions into the pockets of defence contractors; and secondly whipping up fear of an imminent war with an enemy, with the sold objective of distracting the public away from a failing economy and abysmal foreign policy.

It’s happening today. If we look at the mainstream news all we see is talk of war with Russia. And yet there isn’t a single shred of intel which these outlets can offer to substantiate this claim. It will remind many of the weeks leading up the Iraq invasion in 2003 when the U.S. and UK faked intel to show that Saddam Hussein had WMDs.

This entire sick dystopia is held together by psychological compartmentalization. By the fact that it’s more comfortable to avoid looking directly at the horrors of the status quo we live under, even though on some level we all know those horrors are there.

All the shitlibs you see cheering for Biden right now are on some level aware that he’s backing a genocide of unbelievable savagery that is inflicting unfathomable amounts of suffering upon our fellow human beings, but they avoid looking at this reality directly. All the information is right there right out in the open, but they cognitively squirm and twist away from it so that they see only Biden’s acts like slightly reducing America’s student loan debt and not being Donald Trump.

They do this because to really wrap their minds around the depravity of what Biden is doing would shatter their world. It would mean letting in some very scary truths about their nation, their government and their political system that they’d rather avoid noticing. It would mean a crushing deluge of cognitive dissonance until they dramatically revised their worldview into something that could allow for a Democratic president behaving like a complete monster. It would mean having to completely restructure their understanding of the world they live in.

Tucker Carlson has confirmed he is in Moscow to interview Vladimir Putin - and he's doing it because 'Americans are not informed' about the war in Ukraine.

The former Fox News host announced on X on Tuesday that he would be publishing an interview with the Russian despot, following widespread speculation after he was pictured leaving the Kremlin in Moscow on Monday.

Carlson, 54, said the interview would air 'unedited' on his website, without a paywall, and on X, making him the first American to interview Putin since Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022.

'Two years into a war that's reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed,' the conservative commentator said of the conflict in Ukraine. 'They have no real idea what's happening in this region. But they should know, they're paying for much of it in ways they might not fully perceive.'

According to the New York Fed, total household debt in the United States increased by 212 billion dollars during the fourth quarter of 2023.  It is now sitting at a grand total of 17.5 trillion dollars.  I suppose the good news is that we aren’t 34 trillion dollars in debt like the federal government is.  But 17.5 trillion dollars is still really bad, and it is far more than U.S. households can handle.  Unsurprisingly, delinquency rates have started to spike, and I fully expect this trend to intensify in the months ahead.

Nikki Haley suffered an embarrassing defeat to rival Donald Trump in the Nevada Republican Primary on Tuesday, even though he wasn't on the ballot.

The former South Carolina Governor lost by almost 27 points to 'none of these candidates', an option given to voters in The Silver State in the first of two primary contests this week.

Haley didn't campaign in the state due to her campaign saying the election was 'rigged' for the ex-president, who is on the ballot for Thursday's caucus.

But the loss in the race where Trump didn't even compete is a crushing blow for the former United Nations Ambassador who is still struggling to find a path to the GOP nomination.

The no-stakes primary on Tuesday night has no impact on the race for delegates, but voters made their voices heard with their symbolic pick for the Republican frontrunner.

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson was spotted in Moscow, amidst swirling speculation that he was in Russia to interview President Vladimir Putin.

Tucker Carlson was reportedly in Moscow for the past several days, according to Russia’s Mash outlet. Tucker was spotted at the Bolshoi Theatre on Saturday.

This development comes after Carlson’s repeated assertions that his efforts to secure a high-profile interview with Putin were previously derailed by U.S. government intervention.

In 2021, the former Fox News host claimed that the National Security Agency (NSA) had intercepted his communications, a move he asserted was aimed at undermining his show’s success and silencing his critical voice against the Biden regime.

Tucker told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that he was contacted by a journalist over who informed him that the NSA leaked his emails to the media.

A top European Union official has blown the whistle on the so-called “climate emergency” and revealed that the whole narrative is a “depopulation scam.”

The WEF’s Green Deal championed by President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, involving 15 minutes cities, the banning of meat and dairy products, and huge tax hikes on the public, has sparked widespread protests, especially among farmers in Europe.

The Vigilant Fox reports: However, German Member of the European Parliament Christine Anderson says protestors are not extremists. No. “The real Extremists are sitting on the German government bench!” she declared.

“Criticizing the government is not anti-constitutional, but a government that disregards the people … is anti-constitutional!” MEP Anderson added.

She lamented that “our economy is in tatters,” and “a wave of bankruptcies is sweeping the country” because of globalist policies to put the “climate emergency” above all else.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Monday she is exploring a third-party 2024 presidential bid after dramatically losing Wyoming’s congressional seat in the 2022 GOP primary by about 40 points before settling for a professorship at the University of Virginia.

If Cheney decides to run, she said the calculation would include how to spoil former President Donald Trump’s path to reelection. She said that plan could entail joining a bipartisan ticket.

“I think that the situation that we’re in is so grave, and the politics of the moment require independents and Republicans and Democrats coming together in a way that can help form a new coalition, so that may well be a third-party option,” she told USA Today.

The Fani Willis side show in Donald Trump's Georgia election trial is the gift that keeps on giving.

After initially lying about her relationship with Nathan Wade, a prosecutor she paid $700,000 to help her 'get Trump,' Willis finally admitted to it - after Wade's estranged wife began dropping receipts from their divorce proceeding.

That said, Willis lied again according to Joycelyn Wade's legal team. While the Fulton County CA claimed that her relationship with Nathan Wade didn't begin until after she paid him all that taxpayer money - despite the fact that Wade filed for divorce the day after he was hired.

According to a new filing, "witnesses will testify" that Wade "cohabitated with Ms. Willis at an AirBNB in Hapeville that was paid for by tax payer money" which served as a "safe house" for their relationship, which began in 2019 - three years before Willis and Wade said it began.

Mass media outlets like The Guardian, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal have been allowing the publication of some amazingly racist pieces these last few days. All are directed at middle easterners and those of middle eastern descent, just as the western empire drops more and more bombs on more and more countries in the middle east.

On Monday The Guardian published a political cartoon which would be indistinguishable from Nazi propaganda of the 1930s, except that it happens to depict a Muslim instead of a Jew. The cartoon features Iranian leader Ali Khamenei holding puppet strings to so-called Iranian proxy groups in the middle east like the Houthis, Hezbollah and Hamas, in exactly the same way Nazis used to depict Jews as malignant puppet masters manipulating world affairs.

Republicans have also slammed Biden and Democrats for using the legal system to silence or intimidate Trump supporters.

But it looks like we’ve only scratched the surface. A new report reveals how retail giant Amazon was colluding with the Biden White House. And the company agreed with Biden to shut down Americans’ access to “inconvenient” data.

From The Post Millennial:
It has been revealed that Amazon censored books critical of Covid-19 vaccines at the behest of the Biden administration.

The findings were uncovered by the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and relayed to the public via X by Chairman Jim Jordan.

“Never-before-released internal emails subpoenaed by [Judiciary Committee] reveal that the Biden White House pressured Amazon to censor books that expressed views the White House did not approve of,” Jordan wrote.

With Biden’s approval at an all-time low, Democrats are scrambling for a reason for voters to re-elect him. They can’t point to the economy, the border, foreign policy, or crime numbers.

So, one of their biggest tactics has become obvious: prop up abortion. President Biden is using abortion as a last-ditch attempt to save his presidency.

He is trying to convince Americans that their only hope to save abortion is to re-elect him. But it looks like the man has gone much farther than most Americans, in his mad dash to protect abortion access. And this one comment is shocking many.

From The Post Millennial:
At an event in Las Vegas on Sunday, President Joe Biden raised some eyebrows online after he said he was not for “abortion [on] demand” but was only for abortion during “all three trimesters” of pregnancy.

The president said to the Nevada crowd, “I love how Trump is saying Biden is for abortion on demand. Not true. That’s not what Roe v. Wade said. It said the three trimesters… Trump and his MAGA friends are dividing us, not uniting us.”

Illegal immigration will no doubt be a major issue going into the 2024 Election. A Republican candidate running in one state is defending strong immigration laws. But not that long ago, his policies were much, much different.

From Fox News:
A Republican state legislator running for Congress in Indiana is stressing the need to tackle illegal immigration, but has supported legislation that would have provided driving “cards” and in-state tuition rates for those in the U.S. illegally…

[State Sen. Mark Messmer] co-sponsored SB200 in 2022, which would have provided for illegal immigrants in the state to “apply for a driving card learner’s permit and driving card to obtain driving privileges.”

As the United States plunges ever deeper into a fresh Middle East conflagration — this time fighting Iran-backed non-state actors, including Yemen’s Houthis and Shiite resistance groups in Syria and Iraq — its closest allies from the EU and NATO stand divided.

These divisions reflect a long-standing failure of the EU member states and institutions to speak with “one voice” on the Middle East.

When the U.S. called for an international coalition to stop the Yemen-based Houthi militias attacks on the international shipping in the Red Sea, only a few European nations signed the joint statement: the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Italy. Of that initial group, only Britain, Denmark, Netherlands, plus Greece joined as the European contingent of “Operation Prosperity Guardian.”

Others like France, while condemning the Houthi attacks, expressed preference for an autonomous, European-led operation. Still others, like Spain, were skeptical of any involvement in any anti-Houthi action whatsoever.

The US is purposely blocking a Yemen peace deal that was negotiated between the Houthis and Saudi Arabia, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The US decision to re-designate the Houthis as “Specially Designated Global Terrorists” will block the payment of public sector workers living in Houthi-controlled Yemen, who have gone without pay for years.

The payment of civil workers has been a key demand of the Houthis and is part of the first phase of the peace deal. The Houthis had asked for the salaries to be paid for using oil revenue that goes to the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, whose leaders are mainly based in Saudi Arabia. It’s unclear if the Saudi side agreed to the Houthi demand or if they decided to pay the salaries using other means.

The House on Tuesday sank an effort by Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to pass a $17.6 billion military aid bill for Israel to support the slaughter in Gaza.

The bill was fast-tracked under the suspension of House rules, requiring it to have a two-thirds majority to be advanced to the Senate. But the bill failed in a vote of 250-180, with 166 Democrats and 14 Republicans voting against it.

The bill was under threat of a veto from the White House since President Biden wants Congress to pass a $118 billion foreign military aid and border bill that includes about $14 billion for Israel and $60 billion for Ukraine. Most Democrats opposed the $17.6 billion bill for Israel due to the White House’s opposition, although some came out against unlimited support for Israel.

News outlets with access to the summary of an intelligence dossier that claims employees of the UN aid agency for Palestinians participated in the Hamas October 7 attack say it does not include evidence to back the claims. Tel Aviv’s assertion led several major donors to the UN Relief and Works Agency to suspend their funding. UN officials warn that UNRWA will soon run out of funds, which will accelerate Gaza’s 2.3 million Palestinians dissent into famine. 

The UK’s Channel 4 and The Daily Beast reviewed the six-page summary of an intelligence dossier that Israel is distributing to select sources. The document alleges that 12 members of UNRWA participated in the October 7 and hundreds of the agency’s 30,000 employees have ties to Hamas. 

However, according to the outlets, the summary does not provide evidence, just assertions. Channel 4 said Israel “provides no evidence for the explosive claim that UNRWA staff were involved in the terror attacks on Israel.” 

Webmaster addition: This was just Israel throwing a tantrum over the UN ruling.

Amidst the grave humanitarian crisis in the besieged Gaza Strip, an UN Relief Agency truck carrying humanitarian aid has been bombed by Israeli occupation forces.

“This morning a food convoy waiting to move into Northern Gaza was hit by Israeli naval gunfire – thankfully no one was injured,” Thomas White, the Director of UNRWA Affairs in Gaza said on X on Monday. Two photographs of the truck clearly showing the damage accompanied his post. 

The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) warned “We cannot deliver humanitarian aid under fire.”

“Safe and sustainable humanitarian access is urgently needed everywhere including to the north of Gaza,” the agency said on X.

The drone attack on Sunday that killed three U.S. service members at an outpost in Jordan near the Syria border is more likely to increase rather than decrease U.S. military involvement in the region.

This is unfortunate, and doubly so coming at a time when the Biden administration was showing signs of considering a withdrawal of the 900 U.S. troops in Syria and 2,500 in Iraq. Just last week, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin intimated that a joint U.S.-Iraqi review might lead to a drawdown of at least some of the troops in Iraq. Other reporting points to discussions within the administration about possibly removing the troops now in Syria.

It is unclear why the administration chose this time to consider what was already a long-overdue withdrawal of these troops. The answer probably involves the upsurge in regional violence stemming from Israel’s devastating assault on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and associated anger against the United States for its backing of Israel. Since the Israeli assault began, U.S. military installations in Iraq have been attacked more than 60 times and those in Syria more than 90 times.
