“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”  -- William Casey, former director of the CIA, upon being asked what the goal of the agency was (in 1981).

Warsaw has run an exercise to test the reliability of emergency water and power supplies in the city’s shelters, the mayor of the Polish capital has said.

Fresh from the LGBTQ parade over the weekend, Rafal Trzaskowski ordered a snap drill of the city’s emergency services on Monday, “just in case.”

“As part of the Warsaw Safety program, we are checking critical infrastructure; yesterday all city services held training exercises at the water supply plant so that we are ready,” Trzaskowski told reporters on Tuesday. “We are preparing water supplies, preparing warehouses in order to store additional equipment, such as generators. We must be prepared for any kind of situation.”

Trzaskowski also shared photos from the exercise on X (formerly Twitter), reassuring Warsawians that “it’s just a drill,” but that the city takes their safety very seriously.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was left exposed on Tuesday when Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu revealed how the former had promised to work day and night to remove the US ban on the supply of deadly weapons to Israel.

A visibly embarrassed Blinken ran away from answering reporters’ questions on the new revelation.

Rifat Jawaid in his analysis says that this is the most explicit evidence to conclude that Blinken and USA simply can’t be trusted as honest brokers of peace in the Middle East.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu faces one of the massive protests in Tel Aviv over his govt’s inability to stop Hezbollah attacks and bring back Oct 7 hostages. Thousands of protesters joined the anti-Netanyahu demonstration including opposition leader Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz, who recently resigned from the Netanyahu Govt. Opposition leader Lapid also accused Netanyahu of stalling so people forget that he is guilty and responsible for the Oct 7 massacre.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has said China must pay a price for allegedly propping up Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine, saying Beijing is “fueling” the conflict by supplying microelectronics and other key components to Moscow.

“The reality is that China is fueling the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War II,” Stoltenberg said on Monday in a speech at the Wilson Center in Washington. “At the same time, it wants to maintain good relations with the West. Well, Beijing cannot have it both ways. At some point, unless China changes course, allies need to impose a cost.”

Stoltenberg has repeatedly attacked China since the Ukraine crisis began in February 2022, arguing that Beijing was enabling Russia to fight against Kiev, a “European friend” of NATO. He has made such comments even as NATO states prolonged the conflict by providing hundreds of billions of dollars in economic and military aid to Ukraine.

The EU will try to challenge the US and China strategically, the bloc’s competition chief has suggested, however it may be no economic match for either.

Margrethe Vestager told CNBC on Tuesday that the EU had become “much better” at defending itself against unfair trade practices, and that it will continue looking for ways to compete equitably with its economic partners. 

“The point is to realize we can never outspend China or the US,” Vestager said, pointing out: “We can spend strategically.” 

She cited a €100-billion fund for ten “cutting edge technologies” – including in hydrogen, electric batteries, microelectronics, cloud and health – among the EU’s “strategic” investments that she said have “common European interest.”

The US state of Kansas has initiated legal action against Pfizer over “misleading claims” that the pharmaceutical giant allegedly made regarding its Covid-19 vaccine’s effectiveness and the risks associated with it.

Several manufacturers began developing Covid-19 vaccines in the months after the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared a pandemic in March 2020. Governments across the world subsequently began mandating inoculation. According to federal data, more than 366 million doses of Pfizer’s original coronavirus vaccine were administered in the US alone.

On Monday, Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach filed a lawsuit claiming that Pfizer had deliberately hidden evidence linking the vaccine to myocarditis and pregnancy complications.

“Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,” Kobach said in a statement.

The latest French national polls show a final face off between the anti-establishment right and left, and the total decimation of President Emmanuel Macron’s Renaissance party. Looks like he may have fooled himself into thinking that dumping all over the political chessboard was a big-brained three-dimensional move. 

In the wake of the anti-establishment National Rally party winning the European elections by a landslide, with more than double the score of Macron’s party, the usual suspects started chewing up the scenery with riots and unrest. All the National Rally needs to do is film it to create a campaign ad for themselves heading into the French national elections that Macron called in a double-or-nothing bet with the French people. Because Macron did that. And it’s the National Rally that has long campaigned on the promise of putting an end to it.

The past weeks were marked by unprecedented losses among the mercenaries from Colombia in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Since June 10, data on the deaths of more than a dozen Colombian militants, as well as their personal data, have been revealed. These are only those cases that were confirmed by open sources.

The revealed deaths are mainly related to the defeat of the 59th separate motorized infantry brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Ukrainian unit suffered heavy losses in battles in the area of Krasnogorovka in the South Donetsk direction.

Most Colombian mercenaries have been fighting on the Ukrainian front line for less than a month.

Webmaster addition: "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." -- Leading Nazi leader, Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials before he was sentenced to death

One of Muckraker.com's journalists has taken to X, revealing an upcoming report set to expose the shocking reality behind some of the 85,000 migrant children who vanished under the Biden administration's first term. 

Muckraker wrote on X that one government insider has supplied them with a "list of addresses where some of the 85,000 missing alien children have been delivered under the Biden administration."

In the video, a Muckraker journalist stood outside an abandoned Amityville, New York house. He said this is one of the thousands of addresses the government insider has provided them, adding this home with boarded-up windows allegedly had two migrant children delivered to a sponsor living at the house. 

"Our upcoming report will expose the horrors of the Biden administration's unaccompanied children program," Muckraker wrote on X.

The Fed has stated clearly now that it needs several more months before it will believe inflation is actually falling again, and this article explains clearly why that is. The two major factors that gave a tiny drop in CPI last week were oil and softening housing price increases, removing earlier pressure. Apart from the decline/softening in those two items, CPI would have risen. Since those were the major items where softening or downward pressures helped the Fed out and gave stock and bond markets a tingle in the seat of their pants, I’m going to lay out what is coming in those prices, and it is not likely good for the Fed’s fight.

Critics say the products haven’t been evaluated for health or environmental risks and could contain toxins or allergens.

Net zero targets aimed at encouraging airlines to use so-called green aviation fuel are driving fraud “at a mass scale”, campaigners claim. Exporters in China and Malaysia are using virgin palm oil instead of recycled cooking fat to make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), research from lobby group Transport & Environment (T&E) suggests. This means that rather than reducing CO2 emissions, the drive to adopt SAF may instead be driving deforestation.

Walmart has decided to close three more stores across the US, bringing this year's total number of failed locations to 11. 

The retail giant said these three stores - located in Georgia and Colorado - underperformed financially. 

The metro area of Atlanta will be losing one location in Marietta and one in Dunwoody on July 12, though Walmart stressed in a statement that there are nine other stores in the area customers can switch to.

The third Walmart to shut down was in Aurora, which is just east of Denver. It served shoppers for the last time on June 7.

A top doctor whose research paper helped fuel the Dr. Anthony Fauci-led 'propaganda effort' to discredit the Covid Wuhan lab leak theory came under attack in a Senate hearing on Tuesday.

Republican Senator Josh Hawley, from Missouri, ripped into Dr. Robert Garry during the hearing on the origins of COVID about his March 17, 2020 paper dismissing the lab leak theory.

The Republican put the doctor on the spot for publishing the piece that was used to discredit the lab leak theory - while in private emails just weeks before he cast doubt over whether it was scientifically possible for the virus to have originated in a Chinese market.

'I just can't figure out how this gets accomplished in nature,' according to emails from February 2020 that were read out by Hawley in the hearing.

A. Jointly exposing the fabricators of indictments and those who cover for them

1. This is a call by a grand juror lawyer to abusees, class action lawyers, and investigative journalists,
to join forces to expose those public officers in the administration of justice who have participated
in the fabrication of indictments based on false and insufficient evidence and/or its cover-up, e.g.:

a. former NY State Chief Judge Janet DiFiore; former acting Chief Judge Anthony Cannataro;
Bronx Administrative Justice Alvin Yearwood & Grand Jury J. Laurence Busching; et al.;

b. former NY Police Department (NYPD) captain and now NY City Mayor Eric Adams;

c. NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau (IAB) Chief Miguel Iglesias & Commissioner Edward Caban;

d. NY City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and his county counterparts in Bronx; et al.

2. Since 28 May 2022, some thirty public officers, whether personal or institutional, have been
informed by letter, email, and telephone of the fabricated indictments. A sample of the email
headings and text is collected in a pdf file‡; the addressees’ email addresses are in the bloc of
addresses below. Nevertheless, the officers have failed to even reply to them.

Call me old-fashioned, but if I follow a hunch down a rabbit hole and it leads to a dead end, I let it go. However, this, it turns out, is not how journalism is done at Britain’s major TV news organisations. Last week, both the BBC and ITV reported on the same non-story: that no evidence was found of Reform U.K. using ‘bots’ to influence its social media reach ahead of the July 4th General Election. Nonetheless, the stories these outlets published left readers with the clear impression that something nefarious had been exposed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu published a scathing video blasting the White House for holding back weapons shipments to Israel. Washington has blocked one transfer of 2,000-pound bombs but has overwhelmingly provided all the arms requested by Tel Aviv. The PM demanded the US supply the tools Israel needs to “finish the job a lot faster” in the Gaza Strip.

Claire's Observations:  Apparently there are not enough dead and maimed for life Palestinian women and children, to suit Netanyahu. "Finishing the job", means more death and destruction; Biden's handlers know this, and yet they seem to be willing to send him all the bombs and bullets he wants.

Security experts issued a warning to Google Chrome users after uncovering a cyberattack targeting the browser, as well as Microsoft's Word and OneDrive apps.

The attack has used fake error messages to trick users into installing the malicious software themselves as a 'fix.' 

Hackers are sending notifications through email as well as website pop-ups, which claim the user has experienced a software malfunction and need of a quick update.  

To spot a fake, experts have advised users to be wary of messages that claim a fix will require them to install a 'root certificate' by copying and pasting raw code.

While the cyberattack is capable of stealing all manner of private digital data, some of the new malware appears primed for stealing cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin.

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun apologized to crash victim's families at a Senate hearing Tuesday before lawmakers roasted the executive for his role in the airline's turbulent descent. 

'I'm deeply sorry…my whole team at Boeing, everybody worldwide past and present,' Calhoun told the audience in the crowded Senate room. 

Onlookers held up portraits of victims who had died on Boeing planes, and there were too many faces to count.

Boeing has made headlines in recent years for broken landing gears, doors popping off mid-flight and multiple sudden system failures leading to catastrophic crashes in Indonesia in 2018 and Ethiopia in 2019 that resulted in scores of deaths.

The company's repeated failure to fix the plentiful problems has led to skepticism on Capitol Hill and lawmakers torched Calhoun for his role in the airline's downfall Tuesday.

Vivek Ramaswamy compared Donald Trump to America's first President George Washington and claimed the 2024 election is a '1776 moment.'

The former 2024 contender made a surprise appearance at former President Trump's rally in Racine, Wisconsin on Tuesday where he made the comments.

He claimed that Trump is being persecuted like the Founding Fathers were by Britain and called for supporters to come out in November to cast their ballot for the former president.

Ramaswamy also predicted that President Joe Biden might not end up being the 2024 candidate for Democrats in November.

Via Middle East Eye

Since the Israeli onslaught on neighboring Gaza following the Oct.7 Hamas attack, Egyptian soldier Mohamed Omar* has felt helpless. Omar, 23, has served as a patrolling officer in Egypt's North Sinai, along the border with Gaza's Rafah, over the past year. The region is part of a demilitarized zone according to security pacts between Egypt and Israel, and only soldiers with light weapons are allowed to be deployed there.

"It is painful to know that you can help, but you are shackled and cannot help rescue your people from being slaughtered," he told Middle East Eye while on leave in Port Said, a destination for soldiers to rest before heading off to their units in North Sinai. "We've been watching and hearing how intense the Israeli bombing in Rafah is, and we see dozens of Palestinian families passing by the borders."

Vladimir Putin was met with a reception fit for a king upon his arrival in North Korea's capital city this morning. 

After being greeted at the airport with a warm handshake and a hug by the pariah state's dynastic dictator Kim Jong Un, a huge motorcade ferried the Russian President to Pyongyang's main square where thousands upon thousands of adoring citizens were eagerly awaiting his arrival.

The crowds erupted into cheers and let loose a torrent of bright coloured balloons at the sight of the Kremlin chief, who stood beside his host and took in the rapturous applause before they made their way through Kim Il Sung Square along a huge red carpet. 

The pair were saluted by a string of military guards atop snow-white horses before making their way past a gaggle of children clutching balloons and waving frantically at the smirking autocrats. 

Other revellers were seen touting huge portraits of the Russian President standing beside the Russian flag - the colours of which adorned the facades of buildings around the square.
