Thought for the day

For some reason, climate change is only affecting black individuals to collectively commit gun violence across America.

That’s at the macro level. At the micro level, climate change is now the primary link to almost exclusive black gun violence in Kansas City, Missouri.

Structural racism, redlining and disinvestment… now joined by climate change as a reason for black violence. [Is climate change linked to gun violence? A new study shows how KC area is impacted, Kansas City Star, January 2, 2023]:

On the hottest day of 2022 in Kansas City, three people were shot and killed. Three more were shot and survived, the Kansas City Police Department said. The temperature clocked in at 101 degrees on July 23, according to Jared Leighton, a lead forecaster with the National Weather Service in Kansas City. With 171 homicides, this year became the second deadliest on record in Kansas City — and some of those fatal shootings may be linked to an unexpected cause: climate change.

Researchers analyzed more than 116,000 shootings in 100 cities and found that nearly 7% could be attributed to days with above-average temperatures, not only in the summer, but also at other times of the year when it was unseasonably warm. In Kansas City, Missouri, the percentage of shootings tied to days with above-average temperatures was 6.13%, while in Kansas City, Kansas, it was 7.86%, according to the study published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

“An increase in warmer temperatures and more frequent extreme heat events due to climate change may create environments with higher risk of firearm violence in the future,” the study said. Researchers concluded that the findings “underscore the importance of exploring heat mitigation strategies as tools to reduce shootings.” Experts have theorized that warmer temperatures increase stress hormones and lead to more interactions between people.

On 3 January 2020, the US military assassinated Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the elite Quds Force in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), along with his companion, the deputy head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

Three years later, the motives for this decision – and its timing -are still being debated. The reasons for the US’s shock killing, however, may not be solely related to Soleimani’s role in regional conflicts, but could also arguably stem from his growing international clout.

Why was Soleimani assassinated?

Soleimani was reportedly responsible for leading Iran’s plan to surround Israel with an arc of missiles and precision drones in the West Asian region – from Lebanon to Syria, Iraq and Gaza, all the way to Yemen – which was viewed by Israeli officials as an existential threat to the Jewish state.

The US has long accused Soleimani of being behind much of the resistance it faced after invading Iraq in 2003, as well as allegedly ordering operations against US forces in the period leading up to his assassination.

The Quds Force commander – along with Muhandis – were critical in the Iraqi effort to defeat ISIS, outside of the control and agenda of the US and its regional allies, who often used the terrorist group to secure political and geographic gains.

Furthermore, the US held Iran, and by extension Soleimani, responsible for the Yemeni attack on Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facilities on 14 September, 2019. The Aramco attack was so massive that it disrupted half of Saudi oil production, and was the largest of its kind since former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990.

Preparations for the transfer of US-made Patriot surface-to-air missile defense systems to Kiev have already started, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said at a briefing on Wednesday.

"We expect the Patriot deployment shortly. Preparations for the transfer of these systems have already begun," he said.

Kuleba added that Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky and his entourage are working on new decisions on arms deliveries.

In December, the US authorities announced plans to provide $1.85 billion to Ukraine in another package of military aid, which will, for the first time, include a battery of the Patriot air defense missile system. Moscow has repeatedly warned Washington against providing such weapons to Kiev. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Patriot systems would be regarded as legitimate targets by the Russian Armed Forces should Washington supply them to Kiev.

Defense News reported on Wednesday that defense contractor Pratt & Whitney is suspending its deliveries of new F-35 engines, following a setback on a Texas runway last month. Video from the December 15 incident shows a Lockheed F-35B Lightning II crashing during a quality check and the pilot ejecting. 

Last Friday, in the aftermath of the incident, Defense News first reported that Lockheed Martin had “announced it halted acceptance flights and deliveries of new F-35 Joint Strike Fighters” due to the ongoing investigation. As a result, Lockheed Martin delivered seven fewer aircraft than the 148 that they were contracted to deliver in 2022. According to that report, “A source familiar with the program told Defense News the investigation into the Dec. 15 mishap found that a tube used to transfer high-pressure fuel in the fighter’s F135 engine, made by Pratt & Whitney, had failed.”

An Israeli MP in the governing coalition has called for a "final war" against the Palestinians to "subdue them once and for all", following international condemnation of security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir's incursion into Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem.

Hamas, the Palestinian group that controls Gaza, threatened retaliation on Tuesday after Ben-Gvir marched across Al-Aqsa in defiance of longstanding agreements preventing unsanctioned visits to the site by non-Muslims.

On Wednesday, Zvika Fogel - an MP with Ben-Gvir's ultra-nationalist Jewish Power party - hit out at Hamas, saying in an interview on Channel 12 that Israel's policy of going to war with Palestinians "every two or three years" was not enough and that it should "subdue them once and for all".

"It would be worth it because this will be the final war, and after that we can sit and raise doves and all the other beautiful birds that exist," he said, according to Haaretz.

Americans had lost nearly three years of life expectancy during 2020 and 2021. In 2019, the average life span of Americans of all ethnicities was 78.8 years. By the end of 2020, it had dropped to 77.0 years and by the end of 2021 it was 76.4

From 2020 to 2021, death rates increased for each age group 1 year and over. The age groups with the highest increases include working age adults, 25 to 54, and children under 4

The leading causes of death in 2021 were heart disease, cancer and COVID-19, all three of which were higher in 2021 than 2020. Unintentional injury and stroke also significantly increased in 2021

Heart disease, stroke and cancer are all now-known side effects of the COVID jabs. Unintentional injuries may also be due to the shots, as you may easily be injured if you pass out or suffer a heart attack or stroke while doing just about anything

If the COVID jabs worked, you’d expect excess mortality to drop, yet that’s not what we’re seeing. We’re also not seeing mass death from COVID. The only clear factor that might account for these discrepancies is mass injection with an experimental gene transfer technology

Dr. Masanori Fukushima, a professor emeritus at Kyoto University, presented a warning on November 25, 2022, at an event organized by Kazuhisa Ukawa, a concerned private citizen. Apparently on the agenda were concerns involving discrimination against the unvaccinated in Japan as well as an ever-growing list of persons reporting injuries associated with the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. In what frankly can be described as a bombshell acknowledgment given the pedigree of this physician-scientist in Japanese medical research circles, Fukushima declared that “the harm caused by vaccines is now a worldwide problem” and that “given the wide range of adverse events, billions of lives could ultimately  be in danger.” Is this just reactionary hyperbole of a bitter critic or a prescient signal to be taken very seriously?

Involved with the Foundation for Biomedical Research and Innovation and the Translational Research Center for Medical Innovation, the infectious disease expert (Fukushima) has been an oncologist with over 25 years of experience in practice and research, including ongoing reform of Japan’s medical care system.

A big proponent of clinical research,  Fukushima has actively contributed to building the clinical trial infrastructure, with a focus on translational research.  In this recent video of the conference uploaded to Rumble Fukushima told the audience that “Vaccine damage now represents a global problem. Billions of lives at possible risk.” But could this be true? Does this include some hyperbolic alarmism?

Medical experts observing the event of Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse during an American football game think he died on the field Monday night. Medical experts consulted by ‘anti-vaxxer’ Steve Kirsch believe there is a high likelihood that Damar Hamlin was brain dead within 10 minutes after he dropped to the ground. Whether he was vaccinated or not remains a question that demands an answer due to all the other high-profile healthy athletes of the world suddenly dropping dead or injured as they participate in the sports they love.

The primary reason medical experts draw this conclusion is the 9 minutes of CPR. It is very rare for someone not to be brain-dead after the “Golden Five Minutes” is past. Several sports commentators said during their broadcasts that in all the years they have been reporting sports, they have never seen anything like this happen before.

The players openly sobbing, the lack of luster from the ambulance in taking to the field and evacuating the player, and the overall length of time between the time Hamlin fell to the turf to the time he was taken away by ambulance is beyond suspicious! Official accounts report that medical personnel attended to Hamlin on the field for about 10 minutes, including appearing to administer CPR, before an ambulance was driven onto the field. One sports announcer said Hamlin was being given oxygen as he was loaded into the ambulance. But people watching the game noticed it was almost a full half hour from the time Hamlin fell to the ground, and the ambulance took him away.
