Hong Kong markets and Chinese stocks listed in the US surged in premarket trading as Chinese government health experts made an unscheduled overnight announcement in which they not only vowed to speed up Covid shots for the elderly but to avoid excessive restrictions, fueling a new round of bets that Beijing is bending to the pressure of an economic reopening.

“The vaccination rate of the first dose of the vaccine for people over 60 years old has exceeded 90%, but it is still necessary to continue to do a good job of full vaccination and to strengthen immunization for people aged 60-79, especially those over 80 years old,” the National Health Commission wrote in a statement. An official told reporters that vaccination is the best way to prevent severe illness and death, and the elderly benefit the most. The low elderly vaccination rate was viewed as a significant roadblock in reopening the economy, like the rest of the world.

A group of 10 advocacy organizations, including the Identity Theft Resource Center and the Better Identity Coalition, have called on Congress to pass the Improving Digital Identity Act of 2022, mandating the government to develop federal digital ID infrastructure.

The bill has advanced through committees in both the House and Senate, but it is yet to be put to a vote.

The mainstream media is finally noticing that the information is going to be impossible to hide. The Washington Post is now admitting that the majority of Americans who have died of COVID have received at least their primary series (meaning two shots).

Their article was even titled: Covid is no longer mainly a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Here’s why.

For the first time, a majority of Americans dying from the coronavirus received at least the primary series of the vaccine.

Fifty-eight percent of coronavirus deaths in August were people who were vaccinated or boosted, according to an analysis conducted for The Health 202 by Cynthia Cox, vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation. –The Washington Post

Europeans are about to face numerous hardships due to the Ukraine conflict, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told Germany’s Welt an Sonntag newspaper on Sunday. He claimed that these hard times are due to rising food prices and shortages of energy while blaming it all on the war in Ukraine.

He insisted that the members of NATO, the US-led military bloc, and their allies should boost their efforts to bolster Ukrainian forces and keep the fighting going. Meaning he wants more stolen from the taxpayers slaves to make sure Ukraine can stay in the war, according to a report by RT

In his comments, Stoltenberg admitted that the slaves citizens of Western countries are being negatively affected by the conflict in Ukraine. “Rising food and energy bills mean hard times for many households in Europe,” he said, adding, however, that those affected “should remember that the people of Ukraine pay with their blood every day.”

Reports that more vaccinated people are continuing to die of COVID-19 have been surfacing even on mainstream media lately. It finally go to the point that even the ruling class’s lap dogs had to address it. But they are blaming the deaths on the fact that people aren’t getting the new booster shot.

“We can no longer say this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Kaiser Family Foundation Vice President Cynthia Cox, who conducted the analysis, told The Washington Post. And that’s because the vaccinated are getting vaccinated enough.

People who had been vaccinated or boosted made up 58% of COVID-19 deaths in August, the analysis showed. The rate has been on the rise: 23% of coronavirus deaths were among vaccinated people in September 2021, and the vaccinated made up 42% of deaths in January and February of this year, the Post reported.

NATO on Tuesday doubled down on its pledge to eventually admit Ukraine during a meeting of the alliance’s foreign ministers in Bucharest, Romania, a position that played a major role in provoking Russia’s invasion.

The Romanian city was where NATO initially made the promise to Ukraine back in 2008, and at the time, US officials acknowledged that attempting to bring the country into the alliance could spark a war in the region.

“We made the decision in Bucharest in 2008 at the summit,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday. “I was there … representing Norway as Prime Minister. I remember very well the decisions. We stand by those decisions. NATO’s door is open.”

The US State Department has approved the potential sale of a $1bn anti-drone system to Qatar, the pentagon said on Tuesday.

“This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East,” the statement said.

Qatar has also been waiting for a response from the US on a request it made more than a year ago to buy four armed MQ-9B Predator drones, as part of an estimated $600m deal to boost their defensive capabilities.

Alyan al-Amour was imprisoned by Israel for a total of 16 years. 

Adjusting to reality outside the confines of an Israeli prison is not easy. Alyan al-Amour has found that out.

“The sense of freedom I have now is strange,” the 43-year-old said. “When I walk, I find it hard to believe I can move without anyone stopping me.”

On the day after his release in September, Alyan met his fiancee Deena for the first time. The couple got engaged while Alyan was in prison but Deena was never able to visit him.

Alyan and Deena married within a few weeks of their first meeting. It was an important step toward ensuring that Alyan can rebuild his life.

The horrors he encountered behind bars cannot be erased from his memory.

Some top Biden administration officials are pushing for an international military intervention in Haiti over concerns of a migration crisis, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The government of acting Prime Minister Ariel Henry has been under pressure over growing gang violence in the country and from demonstrators that are demanding Henry resign. Henry requested foreign military intervention last month to break a blockade of a key fuel terminal in Port-au-Prince, but the Haitian national police have since broken the blockade.

The US proposed a UN resolution calling for a foreign military force to enter Haiti after Henry’s request but has struggled to find a country willing to lead the intervention. The Times report said that while the Biden administration officials want to see military intervention in the country, they don’t want it to involve US troops.

Russia on Tuesday said it delayed nuclear arms control talks with the US that were set to start this week due to differences with Washington and tensions over Ukraine.

“We have encountered a situation where our American colleagues not only demonstrated a lack of desire to take note of our signals, acknowledge our priorities, but also acted in the opposite way,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters.

The US and Russia were scheduled to hold talks to discuss the last remaining nuclear arms control treaty, the New START, in Cairo from November 29 to December 6. Ryabkov said that Russia will eventually propose new dates for the dialogue, but only when “the time is right.”

In his testimony before the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC), Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tried to justify his use of the Emergencies Act to stop the Freedom Convoy protest by blacklisting and freezing the bank accounts of protesters supporting civil liberties.

Trudeau admitted that the protests were not violent but still insisted that he is “confident” with his decision to use a law that has never been used before to stop the protests.

“There was no loss of life. There was no serious violence. There hasn’t been a recurrence of these kinds of illegal occupations since then. I am absolutely serene and confident that I made the right choice in agreeing with the invocation,” Trudeau told the commission that is investigating whether the government’s decision to use the Emergencies Act was justifiable.

Trudeau said that the “responsibility of a prime minister is to make the tough calls and keep people safe.”

Before the Emergencies Act was invoked, Trudeau said that those opposing Covid measures and restrictions were of a “small, fringe minority” who had “unacceptable views.”

Shin Bet and IDF brass reportedly warned a top Knesset panel on Tuesday to brace for a security escalation in the coming months, as the West Bank endured one of its bloodiest days this year.

An unnamed official who testified before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee told lawmakers that the security establishment expects a rise in both the scope and professional nature of Palestinian attacks, Channel 12 reported.

Five Palestinians were killed on Tuesday, with one of them shot dead after carrying out a car ramming that seriously injured a soldier near the central West Bank settlement of  Migron. The four others — including two brothers — were killed in what the army said were clashes with troops in nearby villages.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid on Tuesday urged world leaders to block a Palestinian bid at the United Nations for an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Israel's occupation, the premier's office has said.

In a letter, Lapid asked more than 50 heads of state, including those of the UK and France, to pressure the Palestinian Authority, which exercises limited rule in the occupied West Bank, and prevent it from promoting the resolution at the General Assembly.

The resolution, approved by a UN committee in early November, asks that the ICJ "urgently" weigh in on Israel's "prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of the Palestinian territory", violating the Palestinians' right to self-determination.

The United States on Tuesday announced $53 million to support the purchase of power grid equipment to Ukraine to help Kyiv fight Russian attacks targeting its energy infrastructure that left millions in the dark with no heating.

"This equipment will be rapidly delivered to Ukraine on an emergency basis to help Ukrainians persevere through the winter," a State Department statement said, adding that the package would include distribution transformers, circuit breakers, surge arresters among other equipment.

Russia has been carrying out huge attacks on Ukraine's electricity transmission and heating infrastructure roughly weekly since October, in what Kyiv and its allies say is a deliberate campaign to harm civilians, a war crime.

A new poll has discovered that a majority of likely voters support House Republicans plans to probe Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.

In the Rasmussen Reports Survey released on Monday, 62% of respondents supported the GOP’s push to investigate Hunter while 34% disapproved of the probe.

GOP lawmakers have flagged dozens of suspicious activity reports linked to the Biden family.

Representative James Comer, who is set to lead the House Oversight Committee, has said the panel plans to evaluate whether or not the president is compromised by foreign influence.

Hawaii is experiencing a rare dual eruption of volcanoes, as both Mauna Loa and Kīlauea spewed lava on the archipelago’s Big Island Tuesday.

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, began erupting Sunday for the first time in nearly four decades, and nearby Kilauea has been erupting for the past year.

Both are in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and their respective lava was flowing down Mauna Lao at the same time Tuesday.

An immigration attorney on MSNBC did not appear to have his facts straight regarding how immigration law in this country works.

He went on the network to state that it was "unlawful" to not grant amnesty to illegal immigrants within the country. Where he came up with something like that, we will never know.

"There is an American law that allows for asylum. The use of title 42, a 1944 law that was done around the same time we were imprisoning Japanese-Americans in internment camps, it is a Stephen Miller special exacted to give harm and cruelty to these individuals," said Aaron Orr, the president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

The Trump Administration used Title 42 to remove illegal migrants who traveled to the United States immediately. It was an efficient system that allowed the country to continue to process legal immigrants while simultaneously dealing with the crisis at the border.

Republicans are demanding answers on the lack of transparency on visitor logs from President Joe Biden’s Delaware home.

“The White House has dodged questions on a report that the Secret Service claims to have no records on who has visited Biden’s home, where the president has spent more than 25% of his time since he took office. By comparison, the visitor logs to the White House have been released,” Fox News reported.

Kentucky GOP Rep. James Comer said: “President Biden has spent a large amount of time at his Delaware residence since assuming office. Americans deserve to know who President Biden is meeting with, especially since we know that he routinely met with Hunter’s business associates during his time as vice president. The Biden Administration must provide transparency to the American people.”

South Carolina Republican Rep. Nancy Mace also demanded answers from Biden over his Delaware visits, arguing that everyone who comes “into close proximity with the President, in an official or personal capacity, is screened by the Secret Service” and that their record of coming close to the president “exists somewhere.”

“It’s bad if there is official business being conducted and they aren’t telling us with who,” Mace said. “It’s even worse the Administration is using the Secret Service to excuse its complete and total lack of transparency.”

The United States will auction nearly one million acres off the Alaskan coast for new oil and gas drilling in December, mandated in the so-called “Inflation” Reduction Act (IRA).

The United States Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), inside the Department of Interior, will put hundreds of thousands of acres off Alaska’s southcentral coast up for auction on December 30 for new oil and gas drilling projects. The lease sale has to be completed by the end of the year to comply with the IRA, which was added to the piece of legislation to win support from West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin.

The auction sale will be of approximately 958,202 acres in Alaska’s Cook Inlet. Bloomberg reported the department estimated that over the lifetime of the lease sales, the area could produce nearly 200 million barrels of crude oil and 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas. However, the estimate would only be accurate if any drilling actually occurs.

I don’t think Biden will run in 2024. I just don’t see it happening. First off, he’s 80-years-old today and looks and sounds like he’s 99-years-old, at best. What will he be like 2 years from now? My God, I shudder to think. The man will be wearing a bib and drooling all over himself by that time. And we all know Biden has dementia or some “brain issues.” He’s a bumbling fool. I am sorry to be so blunt, and perhaps callous, but at this point, I am over it. Dementia Joe and his team of commies are destroying this country and the lives of Americans, they deserve all the mockery we can muster. But, I really don’t see the puppet masters (Obama and company) allowing stubborn, narcissistic Joe to run again.

Even though Joe narrowly escaped immediate termination when “ballot harvesting” and traitor “Republicans” staved off the massive red wave, the reality of the situation has not changed one bit. Joe is still an unpopular, cranky, senile fool, whose entire illegitimate “presidency” is a smoke and mirrors “production” that feels like a poorly run backyard carnival, complete with the “bearded lady” and all the sideshow freaks.

But with that all said, I will admit that it’s almost impossible to figure out what these idiots are going to do. We give them far too much credit for being these “evil geniuses.” They’re really not. They are reacting quickly and stupidly to an ever-changing political landscape and also to the “Trump factor,” which they can never figure out, not to mention, these ghouls are suffering from Stage 5 TDS and can’t think straight, from the get-go.
