Russian Naval Group off Melbourne, Florida Coastline!

Hal Turner World June 10, 2024 Hits: 27327

Here is the vessel tracking map:

While these vessels from the Russian Navy are hanging out off Florida, the Russian Navy frigate Admiral Gorshkov - capable of carrying Zircon hypersonic missiles, arrives in Havana:

Hal Turner Remarks:

Just so all of you grasp what's taking place here, the United States and our NATO vassals, are making more and more trouble for Russia, inside Ukraine.

The Russian Navy has a grouping of warships off the east coast of Florida, between Melbourne and Vero Beach.

So now Russia is demonstrating to us they can make trouble for us . . . . HERE . . . . inside the United States.

While what __we__ are doing in Ukraine is causing the actual deaths of Russian soldiers, Russia has not ---- yet ---- decided to bring death to OUR people. Notice I said "yet."

This is what the US Congress and the US President are causing. While THEY play "the sport of Kings (war" in Ukraine, we the American people are the ones they are endangering HERE, inside our own country.

If we get attacked here, inside America, by Russian forces, the sole and exclusive BLAME rests on members of the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and the present illegitimate occupant of the Presidency.

They have been warned over and over again by Russia, to stop what they're doing. Yet Congress not only ignores the warnings, they up-the-ante and do even worse things. Sooner or later, once the Russians have had enough, they're going to show us that they are as powerful - if not more - than we are.

Remember that when you see your member of Congress slithering out from a nuclear bunker after it's all over . . . . and hold them accountable right then and there.

'Monster'-sized hailstone could shatter Texas record, near world record

A storm tracker used a 16-ounce Monster Energy Drink can for reference to show the size of the hailstone in Vigo Park, Texas on Sunday. The stone dwarfs it.

By Hillary Andrews Source FOX Weather

VIGO PARK, Texas – A hailstone the size of a pineapple could set a new Texas record.

A storm tracker for an Oklahoma City TV station found the hailstone near Vigo Park. He told Phys.Org that this was the largest hailstone he had seen in his 30 years of chasing. He saw the monster stone from 100 yards away.

And this was a literal monster. The storm tracker used a 16-ounce Monster Energy Drink can to show the size of the hail stone in his social media posts. The stone dwarfs it. The can is 6.2 inches high, according to the company.

The tracker sent the pictures to the National Weather Service office in Lubbock, Texas, which shared them with the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, a research group.

"The group found the hailstone to measure just over 7 inches in diameter, which would shatter the current state record of 6.416 inches from Hondo, Texas," the NWS released in a statement.

The Hondo stone fell in 2021. The photo below illustrates why it takes days or longer to verify a hail stone's measurement into the record books. In May 2021, staff from the NWS Austin-San Antonio office and the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety met up at the hailstone's finder's home to scan and analyze the hailstone.

Finally in June, the State Climate Extremes Committee verified and validated the hailstone, making it the largest in Texas – which is saying a lot for a state known for supersizing. The committee is made up of staff from the NWS and the National Centers for Environmental Information.

"After reviewing the observational and meteorological evidence, the means and method of measurement, and previously documented stones, the SCEC unanimously agreed that the hailstone retrieved near Hondo on 28 April 2021 would set the inaugural SCEC record for the State of Texas in four metrics," stated the SCEC memorandum.

Next, the Texas State Climatologist will verify the measurements and research the event.

Stone would need over 100 mph updraft

The size of a hailstone is directly related to the strength of the updrafts in a thunderstorm. The more time hail spends in a cloud, the more layers of water will freeze on it and the larger it will be.

When the ice is too heavy for the updraft, a column of air flowing upwards in a thunderstorm, gravity takes over, and it falls to the ground. Even just a hailstone of 4.5 inches needs at least 100 mph of updraft.

"The extreme lift with the storm's updraft was able to generate giant hail in the vicinity of Vigo Park," NWS Lubbock said. "In addition, the storm produced a tornado which traveled over open country after passing the community."

There is no word yet on how heavy the Vigo Park hailstone was, but the Hondo stone was about 1.2 pounds.

A forecaster with the NWS told a local paper that the Vigo Park stone was about one inch short of setting a world record.

The largest hailstone recorded in the U.S. was 8 inches in diameter and 18.62 inches in circumference, found in Vivian, South Dakota, in 2010. It weighed 1.9 pounds. For comparison, a volleyball is also about 8 inches in diameter. In second place comes a Nebraska hailstone at 7 inches in diameter, but it did have a bigger circumference than the Vivian stone.

The NWS said that the record holding hail did melt a little before the official NWS measurement because the power was out to the finder's freezer.

The heaviest hailstones on record fell in Bangladesh and weighed about 2.25 pounds in 1986, according to Guinness World Records. The storm reportedly killed 92 people.

'We have the Israelis where we want them': Sinwar's words revealed - WSJ report

According to a Wall Street Journal report, Yahya Sinwar has been in direct contact with Hamas leaders in Qatar, saying civilian casualties are "necessary sacrifices."

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

JUNE 11, 2024 09:21 Updated: JUNE 11, 2024 12:53

A Wall Street Journal report has revealed messages penned by Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, to various Hamas officials and hostage deal mediators.

According to the report, referring to the war, Sinwar recently wrote to Hamas officials negotiating a hostage deal, “We have the Israelis right where we want them.”

In a message to Hamas leaders in Qatar, Sinwar presented as an example the civilian casualties during the Algerian war, affirming such casualties “are necessary sacrifices."

In a similar vein, when the three sons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh were killed in an Israel Air Force (IAF) strike in Gaza in April, Sinwar affirmed both their deaths and that of other Palestinians would “infuse life into the veins of this nation, prompting it to rise to its glory and honor.”

Regarding civilian women and children being taken hostages by Palestinian mobs on October 7, the WSJ report cites his messages to negotiators as saying, “Things went out of control.”

People got caught up in this, and that shouldn't have happened,” he claimed.

No reconciliation

Sinwar was also reportedly discontent with Hamas officials meeting with other factions in December to debate reconciliation after the war, which he labeled “shameful and outrageous.”

He reportedly added, “As long as fighters are still standing and we have not lost the war, such contacts should be immediately terminated.” He further stated, “We have the capabilities to continue fighting for months.”

Referring to a ground operation in Rafah, Sinwar wrote to Hamas leaders in Qatar that “Israel’s journey in Rafah won’t be a walk in the park.”

The WSJ report also noted that Sinwar’s recent messages to Hamas allies illustrate an inclination to die while fighting. He equated the Gaza war to the battle of Karbala in Iraq, which occurred in the 7th century and in which the grandson of the prophet Muhammed was killed. “We have to move forward on the same path we started,” Sinwar said. “Or let it be a new Karbala.”

As Trust Wanes

By Hal Lindsey

Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, once said, “Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”

Remove that glue, and things come apart. I was reminded of that when FBI Director Christopher Wray answered questions on Capitol Hill a few days ago. Traditionally, Republicans have been the party of law and order. But here they were, grilling the FBI Director, many of them seeming to believe very little of what the man had to say.

Despite some strong opinions of my own, my point is not to take a side in that fight. But I will say this. Trust is hard won, and easily lost. Trust is won through diligence and integrity. It is won when a person or an institution consistently tells the truth. But the glue of trust weakens with every lie. A bit of it dies with every dishonest deed.

Truth is the common ground that allows us to accomplish things together. If you go to the doctor and you tell him or her the truth, the two of you together can fight whatever problem you face. If you lie, then you’re on your own.

Waning trust not only destroys relationships between individuals, but it destroys the effectiveness of God-ordained human institutions. Even the worst dictators work hard to get their populations to trust them. Government doesn’t work without trust. And if we do not or cannot trust our courts or the judiciary, what do we have left? What are parents to do when they stop trusting their local school systems? What happens when even medical institutions begin to make decisions based on political considerations rather than the health of their patients?

Jesus called Satan the father of lies. That means by his very nature, Satan sows distrust. As a society follows the father of lies, it becomes less trustful and less trustworthy. People begin to feel increasingly paranoid — as if danger lies in wait around every corner. Anger comes quickly and easily. Fear reigns.

What is the solution? Start by trusting God. That doesn’t mean to trust everything you ever heard anyone say about God. But trust Him. Trust His love. Trust that His ways will always be best, even when you do not understand.

Consider these three scriptures. Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man, that He should lie.” Titus 1:2 says, “God… cannot lie.” Hebrews 6:18 says, “It is impossible for God to lie.”

When your society is falling apart or your personal life feels like it’s unraveling, trust God. Follow His instructions. Do what He says. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and He cares about you even more than you care about yourself.

As you trust God, something wonderful will happen inside you. You will become more like your Heavenly Father, the One who cannot lie. You will become more and more trustworthy. It might be the beginning of a healing that will touch the whole world. At the very least, it will change your life. It will defeat your paranoia, quell your anger, and ease your fear.

It is only through His love and your generosity we are able to share the Gospel and hope with millions around the world.  You can help support Hal Lindsey Ministries by mailing your tax deductible gift to PO Box 470470 Tulsa, OK 74147-0470.   United States Over the phone 1-888- ROPTURE (1-888-727-8873)

France’s far right may win big in the EU elections. That’s worrying for migrants, Macron and Ukraine

By ANGELA CHARLTON

PARIS (AP) — French far-right leader Marine Le Pen isn’t on the ballot at the weekend’s European Parliament election, but she’s likely to emerge as one of its biggest winners.

Polls expect her National Rally party to be the top vote-getter in France, trouncing President Emmanuel Macron’s moderate pro-business party. And across Europe, the anti-immigration, nationalist ideas Le Pen has long championed are gaining ground.

The June 6-9 elections in all 27 EU countries will shift the makeup of the European Parliament and policy-making in the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, likely further toward the right and far right. And that could boost Le Pen’s chances of winning France’s presidency in 2027, a long-time dream.

The National Rally’s lead European Parliament candidate Jordan Bardella is riding high on promises to limit free movement of migrants within the EU’s open borders, ease up EU pressure on Russia and dial back EU climate rules.

We stand by the idea of rethinking the European model around the idea of nations. Macron’s Europe is a model of the past,″ Bardella said at a Paris rally Sunday.

Macron’s pro-EU movement meanwhile is flailing, and its chief candidate Valerie Hayer has struggled to make a mark. That’s troubling for Macron as he tries to lead Europe-wide efforts to defend Ukraine and boost the EU’s own defenses and industry.

More popular Prime Minister Gabriel Attal is now joining Hayer at rallies, warning voters that hard-fought post-war European unity — and democracy itself -– is under threat by rising authoritarianism.

’’Europe is mortal, because war knocks on our door as bombs are being dropped on Ukraine, on democracy, on our values, and because we know that if Russia wins it won’t stop there,″ Attal said at a rally last week.

He said Europe knows “it can’t rely on the U.S. eternally and needs to protect itself ... because challenges are multiplying, climate change, big tech, AI, and we can only face them together, the 27 of us.”

While EU voters are choosing members of the European Parliament, many are making decisions based on national concerns – and in France, many are expected to use their ballots to express frustration with Macron’s management of the economy, the farm sector, or security in a country about to host the high-risk Paris Olympics.

On the left, polls show a surprising resurgence of France’s Socialist Party behind its lead candidate, Raphael Glucksmann, who pledges more ambitious climate policy and protections for European businesses and workers.

Macron sidelined France’s once-powerful Socialists and mainstream conservative Republicans when he rose to power in 2017 by staking out a middle ground. But frustration among left-wing voters with Macron’s toughening security and immigration policies, and with the staunch pro-Palestinian stance of the influential far-left France Unbowed party, has driven some back toward the traditional Socialists.

Russia’s president, Gulf leaders and other oil powers can ‘’cut supplies of gas or oil, but they can’t prevent the wind from blowing in (the French Atlantic town of) Saint-Nazaire and the sun from shining in Marseille. We will earn our freedom back by completing the environmental transformation,″ Glucksmann told followers last week.

His fans include office workers like Sébastien Miret, 34.

We want a more feminist, more socially conscious, fairer, more environmentalist Europe, and we’re going to fight to the end to see these ideas win,’' he said at a Socialist campaign event. He’s tired of the ‘’match between Macron and the far-right. We’ve seen it too many times. It’s time to move on.”

Still, it’s Le Penrunner-up to Macron in the last two presidential elections — who is expected to benefit the most from France’s protest vote, even more so than her party did in the last EU elections in 2019.

In the working-class northern France town of Henin-Beaumont, 19-year-old first-time voter Theo Boulogne urged Le Pen to run again for president in 2027, while 76-year-old retiree Gerard Criquelette praised her and Bardella, saying, “They both listen to the people.’'

Le Pen, whose father and party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen was repeatedly convicted of racism and anti-semitism, no longer calls for extreme measures like quitting the EU and the euro. Instead, she aims to weaken the EU’s powers from within.

Across Europe, national parties are rising up not to destroy the European Union, but to build a European alliance of nations capable of facing up to the industrial, environmental, migratory and technological challenges of the 21st century,″ Le Pen told party followers. “Across France and across Europe, we are winning the battle.’'

Oleg Cetinic and Alex Turnbull in Paris, and Philippe Marion in Henin-Beaumont, contributed.

Russia ready to strike NATO airfields hosting Ukrainian jets – MP

The head of Kiev’s air force, Sergey Golubtsov, previously stated that some F-16s donated to his country will be based abroad

Any airfields hosting Ukraine's F-16 fighter jets, whether they are in or outside the country, will be legitimate targets for the Russian military if they participate in combat missions against Moscow’s forces, the chairman of the Russian State Duma Defense Committee, Andrey Kartapolov, has warned.

The comments come as Kiev prepares to receive the first delivery of US-made fighter jets from its Western backers, after Ukrainian pilots were trained to fly them.

In a statement to RIA Novosti published on Monday, Kartapolov clarified that if the F-16s “are not used for their intended purpose” or are simply held in storage at foreign airbases with the intent to transfer them to Ukraine, where they will be equipped, maintained, and flown from Ukrainian airfields, then Russia would have no claims against its “former partners” and would not target them.

However, if the jets take off from foreign bases and carry out sorties and strikes against Russian forces, both the fighter planes and the airfields they are stationed at will be “legitimate targets,” according to Kartapolov.

As for [our ability] to shoot [them] down, we can shoot down anyone, anywhere,” the MP insisted.

Kartapolov’s statement comes after the chief of aviation of Ukraine’s Air Force Command, Sergey Golubtsov, stated in an interview with Radio Liberty on Sunday that some of the F-16 fighter jets donated to Kiev by the West would be stationed at foreign airbases.

He explained that only a portion of the jets would be stationed directly on Ukrainian territory, corresponding to the number of pilots trained to operate the aircraft. The other jets would be kept in reserve at “safe airbases” abroad so that they are not targeted by the Russian military.

Golubtsov stated that so far four countries have agreed to transfer F-16s to Ukraine, namely Belgium, Denmark, Norway, and the Netherlands. While he did not specify exactly how many aircraft would be donated, he claimed it was between 30 and 40 planes, with potentially more to come in the future.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has also warned that Moscow would perceive the deliveries of F-16 fighters to Ukraine as a nuclear threat, given that the jets have long been used as part of the US-led bloc’s joint nuclear missions.

At the same time, the minister stressed that the US-designed jets would not change the situation on the battlefield, and would be shot down and destroyed like any other foreign weapons supplied to Ukraine.

France: Sudanese refugee won’t be deported despite burning down 16 apartments, multiple cars, part of a church, and seriously injuring a student

A serial arsonist who nearly killed dozens of people will not be deported, as his life would be under threat if he is returned to Sudan

By John Cody 6 hours ago Last updated: June 10, 2024 13:59

In a case that involved at least 27 victims, a 35-year-old Sudanese man has been convicted for multiple arson attacks across the French city of Pau, which were set over the period of at least two months, between March and May 2022. During one of the attacks, a young female student was forced to jump from her window, 7 meters (22 feet) off the ground, resulting in her breaking both her ankles and leaving her confined to using a cane, even as of today.

The man has now been convicted for his serial arson attacks, but the judge in the case refuses to deport him, saying that being sent back to Sudan would represent too grave a threat to his life.

Wave of arson attacks

The first incident occurred on the night of March 18, 2022, when he set a building on fire at Rue Darrichon and Passage des Alliés along with two vehicles nearby, according to French news outlet La Republique des Pyrenees.

On the night of May 3, he lit an entire building on fire at Rue Henri-Faisans, which was engulfed in flames. Dozens of students were trapped inside but only one was seriously injured. The fire had started in an Indian restaurant on the first floor but soon spread to the rest of the building.

On May 12, the Sudanese man set seven vehicles on fire in the Zaragoza district, and then on the same night, he broke into the Saint-Pierre Church and set fire to the presbytery.

In total, he set fire to eight vehicles over the course of the attacks.

‘The fear of dying stuck in her apartment’

Numerous victims testified in the case, with many of them relating how the man had destroyed their lives, both financially and psychologically.

One of the victims, Laurence, was so seriously injured in the fire on Rue Faisans that she said during the trial that it was a “miracle” she could even attend. Her lawyer, Me Marrien, said Laurence experienced “the fear of dying stuck in her apartment,” as flames quickly spread inside. The lawyer then asked: “How could he have seen what he did and do it again?”

Laurence, who was a student attending university when the Sudanese arsonist set her building on fire, was forced to jump from her apartment window. The jump, which broke both her ankles, has left her still using a cane, and doctors say it is unclear whether she will regain her full ability to walk during her lifetime. The building the man attacked was a dormitory packed full of French students.

The judge in the case sentenced the Sudanese man to 10 years in prison, short of the 12 years requested by the prosecution.

Laurence said “It’s a fair sentence” even if she had preferred the 12 years requested by deputy prosecutor Sébastien Baraldi. However, despite the arson attack that nearly cost the victim her life and left her disabled, she said she did not want the arsonist permanently banned from French soil.

The judge also refused to issue a deportation order in the case despite the serious nature of the crime and the prosecution’s recommendation that the asylum seeker be deported, with the judge saying that his deportation to Sudan “would have resulted in his death.”

During the trial, the Sudanese suspect offered no reason as to why he participated in numerous arson attacks. He simply said he had had too much alcohol.

You Won't Believe What This NY Dem Candidate Said About Trump Supporters

Madeline Leesman | June 08, 2024 3:00 PM

A New York Democratic congressional candidate suggested that supporters of former President Donald Trump should attend a “re-education camp” after the 2024 election.

The candidate, Paula Collins, is running against New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik.

According to Fox News, Collins made the remarks in a public Zoom town hall meeting this week.

"Even if we were to have a resounding blue wave come through, as many of us would like, putting it all back together again after we’ve gone through this MAGA nightmare and re-educating basically, which, that sounds like a rather, a re-education camp. I don’t think we really want call it that," she said during the Zoom town hall. "I’m sure we can find another way to phrase it."

In an email to Fox News, Collins clarified her comments by attacking Stefanik.

"We currently have lawmakers, including Rep. Elise Stefanik, who mis-quote or mis-understand the law," Collins told Fox News Digital. "Even if MAGA were to be resoundingly defeated, we would need to engage in widespread civics education, which both red and blue voters acknowledge has been slipping in recent years."

Collins said "the goal would be such that regular citizens could understand the process by which the state courts process matters, compared to the federal court circuit, and so forth."

"Rep. Elise Stefanik does not show a good understanding of the court structure in her home state of New York," Collins continued, referring to Trump’s “hush money” case.

Collins added that Stefanik's "outcry bespeaks a lack of basic civics education, as well as a basic lack of respect for the state supreme court system in her home State of New York,” adding that "Similarly, many voters have misunderstandings and lack of regard for basic judicial systems that underscore the need for civics education.”

Factbox-What Ukraine's Allies Have Said About Striking Russia With Western Weapons

By Reuters May 29, 2024, at 11:30 a.m.

KYIV (Reuters) -Ukraine has urged its allies to allow Kyiv to use Western-supplied arms to conduct strikes inside Russia and abandon an official position some of them have held throughout Russia's 27-month-old full-scale invasion.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told Reuters on May 20 that talks had taken place with Kyiv's allies about using their weapons to strike Russian military targets at the border and further inside Russia.

He said the talks had yielded "nothing positive", but some partners have shifted their rhetoric on the matter.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned NATO members on Tuesday that they were playing with fire by proposing to let Ukraine use Western weapons to strike targets inside Russia.

Here's what Kyiv's partners have said:

THE UNITED STATES

Then-Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley said last year: "I can say that we have asked the Ukrainians not to use U.S.-supplied equipment for direct attacks into Russia."

Asked about Washington's current stance on Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said it would "adapt and adjust".

MORE: Places the U.S. Government Warns Not to Travel Right Now

"I think what you've seen over the two plus years, as the nature of the battlefield has changed, as the locations, the means that Russia is employing changed, we've adapted and adjusted to that ... That's exactly what we'll do, going forward," he said.

White House national security spokesman John Kirby told reporters in Washington that U.S. support for Ukraine had evolved over the war. "But right now, there's also no change to our policy."

NATO CHIEF

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has urged members of the alliance to lift restrictions on the use of their weapons to allow Ukraine to strike "legitimate military targets" inside Russia.

"The .......... because we see now that especially in the Kharkiv region, the front line and the borderline is more or less the same," said Stoltenberg, adding the decision was up to each country.

NATO itself, as an organisation, does not deliver arms to Ukraine.

BRITAIN

During a visit to Kyiv on May 3, British Foreign Secretary David Cameron told Reuters that Ukraine could use the weapons provided by London to strike targets inside Russia, and that it was up to Kyiv whether to do so.

"Ukraine has that right," he said. "Just as Russia is striking inside Ukraine, you can quite understand why Ukraine feels the need to make sure it's defending itself."

FRANCE AND GERMANY

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that Ukraine should be allowed to hit military sites inside Russia that Moscow was using to attack Ukraine.

"We think we should allow them to neutralise military sites from which missiles are fired, military sites from which Ukraine is attacked," he told a joint news conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

"(But) we shouldn't allow them to hit other targets in Russia and civilian or other military sites in Russia..."

Asked about the matter, Scholz said: "I find it strange when some people argue that (Ukraine) should not be allowed to defend itself and take measures that are suitable for this."

ITALY

Italy will never send any troops to Ukraine and any weapons it has supplied to Kyiv should not be used on Russian territory, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said on Thursday.

"All the weapons leaving from Italy (to Ukraine) should be used within Ukraine," Tajani said in a TV interview with public broadcaster RAI.

DENMARK

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen echoed Stoltenberg in comments to broadcaster TV2 on Tuesday.

"You are welcome to use what we have donated to Ukraine, also outside of Ukraine - that is, on Russian targets - if it is within international law," she said.

"NATO's Secretary General was very clear on this issue... that it is within the rules when you wage war because it is Ukraine that is being attacked by Russia."

She did not, however, say whether this would apply to the F-16 fighter jets Ukraine is set to receive from Copenhagen.

THE NETHERLANDS

In response to a request for comment, the Dutch Defence Ministry said on Wednesday that Ukraine should use donated weapons in line with international law.

"Beyond this, The Netherlands does not impose legal limitations on the use of weapons supplied by The Netherlands above or on Russian soil," it said.

CZECHIA

Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala told a briefing on Tuesday that statements on the matter by Stoltenberg and others were "absolutely logical".

"Ukraine is a country defending itself against Russian aggression ... and as an attacked country it certainly has all the rights to use all possibilities for its defence."

THE BALTICS

Lithuania has been vocal about its support for Ukraine's right to strike targets inside Russia.

"The way to react to Russia's aggression in Ukraine, and also in our countries, is... to allow Ukraine to use the weapons they already have, the way they need to use them," Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said on Monday.

"That is how you manage escalation... this is how you stop Russia."

Latvian President Edgars Rinkevics also agreed with Stoltenberg, telling CNN on Monday: "I think there is no rational, pragmatic reason not to allow Ukraine to use those weapons against Russia in a way that is most efficient."

Estonian Defence Minister Hanno Pevkur called on X for Kyiv's allies to "increase training for Ukrainian fighters (and) allow Ukraine to strike military targets in Russia."

It’s Trump vs WWIII – Martin Armstrong

By Greg Hunter On June 8, 2024 In Political Analysis 142 Comments

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Saturday Night Post)

Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong says we are going to have a wild close to 2024. Let’s start with Biden’s new job approval rating from Martin Armstrong’s “Socrates” program, which is now only 6% to 7%. Armstrong explains, “It’s the old story of draining the swamp, but now, the swamp is an ocean. This is completely crazy. The cases against Trump show you how desperate they are here. The reason they want Biden, and they even blocked RFK Jr. from getting on the Democrat ticket, the reason they want him is he is just a sock puppet. He’s not really in charge. He’s not making any decisions.”

Are the Deep State globalist Democrats panicking over the 6% to 7% Biden approval rating? Top people on both sides know this is an accurate number. With about four months to go before the 2024 Election, are they now panicking over these dismal approval numbers? Armstrong says, “Oh, yes, they are panicking. I have been in politics for more than 40 years. I know how it works. All of a sudden, you see in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, oh, Biden is slipping behind closed doors. That would not make the press unless they wanted it to. They are floating a ballon to see how it goes. All of a sudden, they want Biden to do a debate. Before, no debates. Why? Because they know he’s going to look bad. . . . At the Democrat Convention, they will draft someone else, and that is most likely going to be Hillary.”

The economy and war are linked in a big way, according to Armstrong, and he explains, “You’ve got about $10 trillion of US debt that is maturing this year. . . . You’ve got Secretary of State Blinken threatening China with war. China dumped $53 billion in US debt in the first quarter of 2024. That means China are sellers and not buyers. You had Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen flying to China asking, ‘Please don’t sell.’ It didn’t work. This is why they are talking about raising the capital gains to 44%. Why? If nobody is going to buy the debt, that’s when default comes. If you cannot sell the new debt to pay off the old debt, guess what? It’s done. This is how governments fall, and I have been warning them for decades that this is how it’s going to end. . . . This is why they need war. This is why Europe is going into war. . . . If you cannot sell the new debt, you have to default. If you have war, and that is what is really behind this, if you go into war, they get to default and blame Putin. . . . In November, it’s going to be Trump vs World War III regardless who is on the other side. If you get Hillary or you get Biden, it’s the same thing. Hillary is a neocon, and Biden says yes to whatever the neocons want.” And the neocons clearly want war–a big one.

There is much more in the 1-hour and 3-minute in-depth interview.

The forgotten war fronts: IDF fends off long-range threats from Yemen and Iraq

IDF intercepts ballistic missile fired at Eilat from Yemen

All Israel News Staff | Published: June 3, 2024

While the intense fighting against Hamas in the Gaza Strip and the daily attacks by Hezbollah in the north dominate most of the media coverage about Israel these days, it's important to remember that Israel is actually engaged in a war on at least seven fronts.

In addition to those two active fronts, Israel continues to face constant threats from the West Bank and has also suffered attacks from Iran and Syria.

Furthermore, Iranian proxy militias in Yemen and Iraq have been probing Israeli air defense systems with long-range projectiles almost every week, and recently escalated their attacks using larger and more sophisticated munitions.

On Monday morning, a rocket alarm siren was activated in the southern city of Eilat. The IDF later said it had successfully intercepted a surface-to-surface ballistic missile over the Red Sea, using the Arrow defense system.

The Houthi terror group in Yemen has been shooting drones and missiles at Israel in support of Hamas since last October.

While most of its attacks were intercepted, at the start of April a drone struck a building at an IDF naval base in Eilat. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an Iran-backed network of Shia Islamist terrorist groups, took responsibility for the attack.

Iran is encouraging militias in Iraq to use drones to strike Israel. Iran has backed militias in Iraq for many years, trafficking weapons and drone technology to these dangerous groups,” Seth Frantzman, an adjunct fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, wrote in April.

“The Iran-backed groups in Iraq and in neighboring Syria have carried out hundreds of attacks on U.S. forces over the last four years, and they have expanded their regional threats to attack Israel,” Frantzman added.

Just one week ago, two additional drones launched by the group were shot down near Eilat by an Israeli Air Force (IAF) fighter jet, as well as “ground-based air defense systems,” the IDF reported.

A few days later, the Israeli army said it shot down a cruise missile approaching the southern Golan Heights “from the east,” a phrase the IDF uses to describe attacks launched from Iraq.

The Houthis have attacked Israel at least 53 times since the start of the war, according to The Jerusalem Post, and severely impacted ship commerce through the Bab al-Mandab straits, effectively shutting off Eilat’s once busy port.

“The Houthis are trying to suffocate Eilat and its economy,” Gideon Golber, the Eilat port director-general told The Media Line.

“The remaining Israeli ports are absorbing shipments delivered through the Red Sea, but Eilat has unused logistics equipment and personnel. If the conflict in the north, between Israel and Hezbollah, further escalates, impacting the ports in the Mediterranean Sea, this could become a national threat.”

Day 242 of Israel at war: The Prime Minister conducted a situation assessment with security branch leaders concerning developments in northern Israel. As tentions increase in the north, rocket barrage from Hezbollah has become more freequent, causing several fires in the northern part of the country.

Prime Minister Netanyahu received updates from the National Fire and Rescue Authority regarding their efforts to extinguish the fires.

Six reserve soldiers sustained minor injuries while assisting in firefighting efforts near Kiryat Shmona and were taken to the Ziv Medical Center. Additionally, five civilians were treated for minor smoke inhalation injuries after participating in fire extinguishing near Amiad.

Watching Washington Foment Nuclear War

June 2, 2024 | Categories: Articles & Columns | Tags: | Print This Article Print This Article

Paul Craig Roberts

For two years Biden was absolutely adamant that no US weapons could be used to strike Russia. Now he reverses the policy — aka, he lied. So where’s the pushback? Congress, media? What could be of greater consequence than lying the country into war with a nuclear superpower?” — Michael Tracey

Are the peoples of the Western world so completely insouciant that they do not notice that their politicians are pushing them into direct conflict with Russia? It seems Hungarians are the only European people who have any sense.

https://www.rt.com/news/598644-budapest-peace-march-nato/ 

The Kremlin could not issue any warnings more dire, and in response moronic Western politicians provoke harder. Are they unable to comprehend that they are provoking a nuclear war, or is it their intention to provoke a nuclear war?

Biden, Blinken, and NATO have made another U-turn. The long range missiles that Ukraine could not use for attacks on Russian territory can now be used that way, but, for now, only on military targets. But the distinction between military and non-military targets is a distinction without meaning or substance. All modern wars are attacks on civilians and infrastructure.

The argument that resulted in removing restrictions on long range missiles is that in order to defend itself Ukraine needs to be able to use the weapons Washington provides to attack the military infrastructure that Russia uses to attack Ukraine.

Russia will simply attack the sites from which it is being attacked, so the long range missiles will contribute nothing to Ukraine’s defense. Even worse: as the Kremlin knows the missiles have to be programmed with targeting information by US and NATO personnel, Russia regards the countries responsible for the targeting as combatants and targets. We are on the verge of the final widening of the war.

As every previous no-no became a yes-yes, the Kremlin has to assume that the no-no prohibition on sending NATO troops will soon become a yes-yes. If realism prevails in the Kremlin, this forces Putin to abandon his limited military operation and to knock out Ukraine before it fills up with NATO soldiers.

From the beginning it was obvious to me that the limited military operation was a strategic blunder that would allow the West to become involved, with the consequence being the widening of the war. That is precisely what has happened. We have reached the point where Putin is telling the West to back off or out come the nukes.

But no one in the West hears.

Washington cares no more for Ukrainians than it cares for Palestinians. The Ukraine conflict is a way for Washington to force Russia into a response that can be used to justify a US/NATO attack on Russia. What is to be served by this? It is a form of suicide for the West.

Where is a responsible Western leader to diffuse this dangerous situation? Why are there none? Keeping Russian Donbas in Ukraine, where it should never have been put, is not worth the war that is being fomented.

As the long range missiles cannot improve Ukraine’s battlefield performance, their only purpose is to be used for provocations. Anyone looking at the situation who thinks more provocations are what is needed is insane.

It is mind-boggling to actually watch Western leaders foment a nuclear war.

There is no opposition from Congress. None from print and TV media. None from European governments except Hungary. Western peoples are too insouciant to understand that they are standing on the edge of annihilation.

We Are Inches Away from Destruction” — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban

Some who find reality too upsetting take issue with my warnings of how close we are to a final war. I have acquired a new accolade — “scaremonger.” But I am not the only aware person on earth. Dr. Postal at MIT understands the seriousness of the situation, as does Mike Whitney, Steven Starr, Gilbert Doctorow, Scott Ritter, and Viktor Orban. Even the restrained, unprovocative Putin now understands that Russia is confronted with war, not a limited military operation to liberate the Donbas Russians.

Prime Minister Orban says that every week he sees more and more signs that the EU and NATO are preparing for military action. The Western governments, Orban has concluded, “want to defeat Russia, they want to achieve military success at any cost.” The cost will be life on the planet. Why is Ukraine’s NATO membership more important than the massive loss of life and perhaps the livability of life on the planet? https://tass.com/world/1796133 

It is extraordinary that the Western world will do nothing to stop Israel’s genocide of the Palestinians, but is prepared to destroy life on earth for the artificial borders of an artificial country called Ukraine, which is known historically as “the Ukraine,” that is, as a province of a larger country.

Oban tells the truth. He says “NATO is a strong defensive alliance created to protect its member states, not to intervene in another war.” Oban says he will do what he can to prevent Hungary from being drawn into the maelstrom. “This is not our war, and Hungarians should not suffer because of it.”

But Hungary along with any survivors and Mother Earth herself and all her creatures and plant life will suffer from the massive fires, radioactivity, perhaps a nuclear winter, total disruption of all global supply chains, and so forth. The countries that survive, if any, will be those well removed from the blast zones, wind patterns loaded with radioactivity, and self sufficient in food production. All economies dependent on global relationships will be destroyed.

The world as it is organized today cannot survive a major war. How will cities of millions of people be sustained when supply chains no longer exist? Without war Mexico City with its 20 millions is almost empty of water.

I can continue asking these kind of questions, to which there are no answers.

But it is pointless.

The problem is that except for Orban and Putin, every Western political leader is committed to war for no justifiable reason.

There is no reason for the pending war. Ukraine can exist as a neutral state. Washington can pull back its presence on Russia’s borders.

The American neoconservatives’ nonsensical demand for US hegemony can be abandoned. Whatever the consequences of accepting reality, they are better than nuclear war.

Why is it that no one in the Western world understands the threat to life?

What is the explanation for Biden now approaching the end of his fourth year in office HAVING NEVER MET WITH PUTIN IN AN EFFORT TO RESOLVE THE MOST DANGEROUS CRISIS IN HUMAN HISTORY?

The dumbshits governing us do not comprehend that today’s thermonuclear weapons can be a thousand times more powerful as the atomic bombs the US dropped on two Japanese civilian cities. The weapons today do not merely obliterate large cities, they obliterate large regions.

Steven Starr and other experts have expressed their concerns that a nuclear war could fill the atmosphere with dust and debris that would block the sun for years until it settled. In those years there may be a limited or non-existent growing season. Therefore, all life can be the casualty.

From a presentation by Dr. Theodore Postal, Massachusetts Institute of Technology:

The Russian nuclear Early Warning System (EWS) at Amir was damaged by an attack. The decision to attack the Russian EWS was made in Washington. The drones were guided to their targets using US aerial and satellite reconnaissance (they have to take multiple evasive actions in the course of their flights to evade Russian radar systems, and this can only be supplied via real-time targeting information provided by the US). The operators of the drones were likely mercenaries trained in the US or out-of-uniform US troops. Russia knows this and so it considers this a US attack on its nuclear Early Warning System.

The attack was reckless beyond comprehension. ANY such attacks against the EWS system used to protect Russia from a nuclear attack can justify, under Russian law, a nuclear retaliatory strike.

The US/NATO/Ukraine previously conducted multiple drone attacks on the Russian airbase at Engels, which is where Russia keeps its long-range strategic nuclear bombers. It appeared that at least in one of these attacks, a strategic nuclear bomber was damaged. Engels airbase is hundreds of miles inside of Russia and the drones could not have made it to the base without real-time targeting information supplied by US aerial and satellite reconnaissance.

Russian military planners must consider these attacks as a possible prelude to a nuclear first strike against Russia by the United States.

The US and NATO are also preparing to send F-16s to Ukraine. Russia has announced that they will consider these to be nuclear-capable weapon systems and treat them accordingly, including striking whatever bases these weapons are launched from — inside or outside of Ukraine (meaning in Poland and Romania).

Biden today authorized attacks inside Russia using US long-range weapons. France and Germany then followed the US, giving their approval to the use of Western-supplied weapons to attack targets inside Russia.

The situation in Ukraine is escalating to the point of being out of control. Yet Western mass media ignores these events and the general public remains blissfully unaware that their leaders continue to escalate the war in Ukraine to the point where it can become a nuclear war that will destroy all nations and peoples.

Gilbert Doctorow explains that Russia’s “dead hand” launch system cannot be deterred by a first strike

Gilbert Doctorow reminds us that the Russians have a “dead hand” launch system. Even if every Russian command and control center is wiped out in a first strike against Russia, sufficient missiles launch to wipe out the US and Western Europe. In other words, there is no advantage in a US first strike on Russia. https://gilbertdoctorow.com/2024/06/01/first-strike-capable-why-russia-is-indifferent-to-damage-to-one-or-another

-ground-based-radar-installation/ 

Doctorow also reminds us that it only takes one fully loaded hypersonic non-interceptible Sarmat multiple warhead missile to level a country the size of the UK to the ground, and only several to erase the US from the map. It goes far beyond insanity for Europe and the US to cultivate their own suicide. The media keep all information from the public, which is unaware that its continued existence is in question.

Here is Scott Ritter on the likely consequences of attacks inside Russia:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt_-BS7vY_o 

Scott Ritter reminds us that the weapons used to strike inside Russia have to be programmed by the US/NATO countries that supply them. Ukraine is ancillary to the process. Russia understands this and has stated that Russia will attack the countries responsible.

Here is a summary of the Scott Ritter video provided by an expert who shares my concern that Washington is driving the world into nuclear war:

“Scott Ritter explains that any further attacks on Russian strategic sites or attacks on Russian territory using missiles or cruise missiles will result in Russia hitting back against all the NATO targets — inside and outside Ukraine responsible for such attacks.

“This includes US aerial reconnaissance assets: US satellites, AWACS, and Reaper drones; it includes any NATO headquarters and air bases that were involved in the preparation, programming, targeting, and launching of the long-range missiles and drones used to hit Russian territory. This includes bases within France, the UK, Germany, and possibly the US.

Ritter says that such attacks would result in the NATO nations struck by Russian retaliatory strikes invoking Article V of the NATO Charter, claiming they had been attacked by Russia. Ritter says that if NATO member states take this action and unite in war against Russia, then Russia will launch a massive nuclear strike against all these nations. I hope he is wrong.

Given that the US, the UK, France, and Germany have all signed off on using long-range weapons against Russia, albeit in a ‘limited’ area of Russia, I think we are close to the scenario that Ritter suggests because the ‘limited’ area of Russia subject to attack will expand. A situation will arise where Putin is forced to hit back in a way that is decisive. The West will deny that the Russian strike is in retaliation for their own thinly disguised attacks on Russia — they will call the Russian strikes “unprovoked aggression” and an act of war.

“The US and NATO have been hiding behind the lie that it is Ukraine fighting Russia — not the West fighting Russia. When US, UK, French, and German weapons arrive in Ukraine, they become “Ukrainian weapons”, and thus Ukraine, not the West, is made responsible for whatever is done with them, whatever targets they hit.

Russia no longer will accept the lie that only Ukraine, not the West, is at war with Russia. Even Putin has publicly stated that the high-tech, long-range weapons are US and NATO weapons, programmed, operated, guided, and launched by US/NATO troops. The targets are decided on by the US, not by Ukraine. The weapons have to use real-time guidance from US aerial and satellite reconnaissance, hence, Russia will destroy the satellites, drones, and AWACs providing the targeting information. All the components of the attacks on Russia will be targeted.

Russia is not bluffing. Russia will not back down.”

It is extraordinary that the entire political leadership of the Western world is pushing the world into nuclear war. Why does the West seek its own destruction? What is to be gained?

During the 20th century Cold War in which I was intimately involved both as a trustee of the Committee on the Present Danger and as a member of a secret Presidential Committee with authority to investigate the CIA’s opposition to President Reagan’s effort to end the Cold War and normalize relations with the Soviet Union, I can say with confidence that even hard line anti-communists sought to reduce tensions instead of provoking war.

What I have witnessed in the 21st century is the most egregious cultivation of war by the US government in human history, and no one in the print or TV media tells us the consequences.

Unrealized losses in the US banking system are once again on the rise, according to new numbers from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

In its Quarterly Banking Profile report, the FDIC says banks are now saddled with more than half a trillion dollars in paper losses on their balance sheets.

The FDIC also says that the number of lenders on its Problem Bank List rose last quarter. According to the agency, these banks are on the brink of insolvency due to financial, operational, or managerial weakness or a combination of such issues.

Britain ‘at war’ with Russia – ex-MI6 boss

The UK needs to make “tough choices” to be able to counter the “threats” posed by Russia and China, Richard Dearlove has said

Britain is engaged in a “gray war” with Russia, but neither the authorities nor the public are taking the situation seriously enough, the former head of the famed spy agency MI6, Richard Dearlove, has warned.

The UK military isn’t getting enough money to be able to counter the “threats” posed by Moscow and Beijing, Richard Dearlove, who led the British Secret Intelligence Service between 1999 and 2004, said in an interview with Politico on Friday.

The statement followed last week’s announcement of the UK’s budget for the next financial year, in which there was no increase in defense spending. It remains at 2% of the country’s GDP.

”If you stopped anyone in the street here in the UK and asked them whether they thought Britain is at war, they’d look at you as if you were mad. But we are at war — we’re engaged in a gray war with Russia, and I am trying to remind people of that,” the former spy chief said.

The British authorities have “got to make some tough choices, and I’m afraid the tough choices are in front of us right now. We should be spending at least 2.5%” on defense, he insisted.

We urgently need to be building more ships. We need a much bigger navy. And we need more boots on the ground, for God’s sake,” Dearlove stressed.

The fighting between Russia and Ukraine has shown the importance of manpower on the modern battlefield, the 79-year-old said. The size of the British army had been reduced by more than 26,000 since 2006, and currently has just over 74,000 full-time troops.

Last month, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov accused the UK of being “directly involved” in the conflict between Moscow and Ukraine. He was reacting to a report in The Times which claimed that the head of the UK armed forces, Admiral Tony Radakin, had “helped the Ukrainians with the strategy to destroy Russian ships and open up the Black Sea.” According to Peskov, it is “no secret” for Moscow that the British “provide different forms of support” to Kiev such as “people on the ground and intelligence.”

In February, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the UK has been “even more aggressive, more elaborate in its provocative assertiveness” towards Moscow than any other Western nation during the conflict.

The UK has been one of the leading backers of Ukraine in Europe since the start of the fighting more than two years ago, pledging to provide Kiev with 12 billion pounds ($15.2 billion) in overall support, including 7.1 billion pounds ($9 billion) in military assistance.

You are going to see much more happening overseas now much more.  Russia, they have been poked in the eye so long they are ready to fight.  North Korea has been mocked for so long they are ready to fight.  They are not afraid of those ships that are out there; they were out there during the Korean War.  Oh, wake up, wake up, you need to turn to me and not to your own ways, for the old ways never did work etc

US close to ‘fatal’ miscalculation – Moscow

Russia’s response to what Washington’s “clients” in Ukraine do may be “asymmetrical” and stronger than expected, the senior diplomat has warned

The US is close to making a “fatal” miscalculation in its attempts to deal with Russia and the Ukraine conflict, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has warned.

The senior diplomat commented on Monday on the reported US decision to let Kiev use American weapons outside what Washington considers Ukrainian territory. The move is supposedly limited to a small piece of Russia’s Belgorod Region relevant to hostilities across the border in Ukraine’s Kharkov Region.

I’d like to warn American actors against miscalculations that can lead to fatal consequences. For some unclear reason they underestimate how serious a response they could face,” Ryabkov told journalists.

Up to then the stated US policy had been to ban such attacks, to prevent triggering “World War III.” Kiev has said it is disappointed by the change, as it wants permission to fire long-range American weapons deep inside Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned of “serious consequences” of potential long-range strikes “considering the [countries’] parity in strategic weapons.”

Ryabkov urged American policymakers to “spend some of their time, which they probably waste on computer games, judging by their air-headed approach to serious issues” on considering Putin's words.

The official also warned that Russia could react asymmetrically to a Ukrainian attack on its nuclear deterrence, as Moscow would hold the US responsible. Officials in Washington “have given Kiev a permit for any crimes, any action, and do nothing to curb provocations by their clients… But the US does not get this for free and will feel consequences,” the deputy FM warned.

Ukrainian sources have claimed to the media that Kiev targeted two early-warning radar stations in Russia last month, allegedly damaging one. The facilities in question are designed to detect intercontinental ballistic missile launches and provide a response window to the Russian leadership.

The Russian Defense Ministry did not comment on the reports.

Systems Are Coming Apart; NY Stock Exchange "Glitches" Cause Multiple "Trading Halts" as $1.4 TRILLION Magically Wiped-out for Berkshire Hathaway . . .

Hal Turner Nation June 03, 2024 Hits: 19481

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) opened as usual at 9:30 eastern time today, and within minutes chaos erupted. Trading in multiple stocks had to be "Halted" because of "Volatility" as over $1.4 TRILLION Value got "glitched."

GameStop Trading Activity Halted - Roaring Kitty's Return Keith Gill, known as "Roaring Kitty," returned to social media, reigniting interest GameStop shares.

Horace Mann Educators Corporation Common Stock -- Trading Halted at 09:46:15 ET on NYSE | Volatility Trading Pause | 2024-06-03

Trinity Industries, Inc. Common Stock -- Trading Halted at 09:45:10 ET on NYSE | Volatility Trading Pause | 2024-06-03

Plutonian Acq Cp Ut | Trading Halted at 09:44:53 ET on NASDAQ | Volatility Trading Pause | 2024-06-03

Kforce, Inc. - Common Stock | Trading Halted at 10:00:24 ET on NYSE | Volatility Trading Pause | 2024-06-03

Then the really big boys starting getting hit . . . badly:

AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. Class A Common Stock | Trading Halted at 09:37:10 ET on NYSE | Volatility Trading Pause | 2024-06-03

But the absolutely HUGE problem of the day was Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway which took took a minor 99.97% haircut. Which is equivalent to a valuation loss of $1.4 trillion, however, trading has been halted and it is likely a technical issue.

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

So what can we, the regular folks, make of this? Why the sudden gigantic volatility in the markets?

A number of people with whom I spoke this afternoon all agreed: The system is coming apart at the seams. There is so much corruption, so much dirty dealing, so much cooking of the books, so many outright phony reporting of financial numbers, it is hard to hide anymore.

Plus, several of them said, the US money supply is contracting. It has only done that before and then the Great Depression followed.

So it seems to many people - but certainly not all - that the system is now coming apart.

Think about this for a moment: If the premier Stock Exchange in the world, closes with everything fine on Friday, then opens with inexplicable catastrophic volatility on Monday morning, how trustworthy is the system anymore?

Of course, I saw this as it was taking place and . . . all my regular readers know what I did . . . . went to the bank and pulled out some cash. Not for paying bills, but to SURVIVE ON if the entire system collapsed.

I don't trust it anymore. At all.

The fact that this type of trouble could pop-up out of nowhere, and likely be a "glitch" in some computer somewhere, tells me the system is now completely unstable and is not to be trusted at all.

Others may legitimately have a different view, and I respect that. But frankly, when it comes to matters financial, I don't trust these people are far as I can throw them, and I can't even pick them up.

Z E R O Trust.

I have some cash to live on . . . do you? If not, get some. Just in case.

Something Big Is Coming, Be Ready - Mass Amnesty, Bribing Young Voters With Loan Forgiveness, And Persecuting Political Opponents Shows The Biden Regime Will Burn It All Down Before Giving Up The White House

By Susan Duclos - All News Pipeline

The left, meaning Democrats and the MSM, love to point to Donald Trump, accusing him of inciting an "insurrection" on January 6, 2021 (even though the FBI said it was not an insurrection), but when all was said and done, no one had to physically drag Trump out of the White House on January 20, 2021, he left of his own free will.

Trump also did not blatantly ignore a Supreme Court ruling and bribe young voters with student loan forgiveness, allow an invasion over the southern border, give mass amnesty to illegal aliens aka soon-to-be Democrat voters, drain our Strategic reserves, or prosecute the presidential nominee of the opposing in a presidential election year.... no, that was and is the Biden regime.

Let us start with the persecutions, where in the most recent court case in NY where a jury convicted Donald Trump, Alvin Bragg, the District Attorney, met with federal law enforcement before indicting Trump on a state charge. Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted Trump on a federal charge shortly after meetings between Biden’s counsel and Smith’s team came to light. Last but not least, the racketeering charges against Trump in Georgia came after her top prosecutor, and lover, had two meetings at the White House. We know this because he billed for them both.

The prosecutors have not denied meetings with the White House but say the cases are independent.

Had the Trump White House done any of the above, the MSM, liberals and Democrat politicians, (all the same, I know) would have been screaming "dictator," "fascist!" " and "authoritarian," all day and night for years.

"Trump is Hitler doing Putin's bidding" headlines would have been published back-to-back all the way up to the 2020 presidential election.

Yet Trump is still ahead in the polling, and basically tied in states like Virginia, which went blue by 10 points in 2020.

A new survey of likely voters released on Wednesday shows President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump tied in Virginia, a dramatic turn in a state that went blue by 10 points in 2020.

The poll from the Institute for Policy and Opinion Research at Roanoke College showed Biden and Trump at 42% each among Virginians. But when other candidates are included in the survey Biden takes a slight advantage, 40% to Trump's 38%.....

Virginia has voted blue, for Democrats, in presidential elections since 2008.

MASS AMNESTY FOR 350,000 FUTURE DEMOCRAT VOTERS........

One of the latest outrageous actions on the part of the Biden regime is giving "mass amnesty" to illegals by terminating 350,000 asylum cases.

Via MSN from the New York Post:

Data shows that since 2022, more than 350,000 asylum cases filed by migrants have been closed by the US government if the applicants don’t have a criminal record or are otherwise not deemed a threat to the country.

This means that while the migrants are not granted or denied asylum — their cases are “terminated without a decision on the merits of their asylum claim” — they are removed from the legal system and no longer required to check in with authorities.

The move allows them to legally, indefinitely roam about the US without fear of deportation, effectively letting them slip through the cracks.

Now in dozens of municipalities, illegals are allowed to vote in local elections. This is the first step before attempting to allow them to vote in federal elections. Plus, illegals are counted in the census, allowing blue/Democrat states to have extra (22) representation in the House of Representatives.

Related: Majority of House Dems vote to allow noncitizen voting in DC

BRIBING YOUNG VOTERS, IGNORING SCOTUS....

After the Supreme Court ruled against the Biden regime's student loan forgiveness, they did it anyway. First they cancelled $1.2 billion in student loans for 150,000 people, then another $7.7 billion for another 160,000 people.

Within weeks of the Supreme Court ruling, the Biden administration initiated a process to establish a “Plan B” for mass student loan forgiveness. Rather than relying on the HEROES Act, Biden indicated that the new plan would be enacted through the Higher Education Act, an entirely distinct statute. The HEA contains a provision that allows the Education Department to “compromise” or “waive” federal student debt obligations in certain circumstances. While the HEROES Act’s waiver authority was untested, the so-called “compromise and settlement” authority under the HEA has already been utilized under a variety of circumstances across multiple administrations, albeit not on the scale of Biden’s initial student loan forgiveness plan.

These are people who are of voting age. This is a blatant attempt to bribe voters into re-electing the dementia-ridden Biden in November 2024.

Despite all attempts to bribe voters, persecute Trump in the courts, Biden and Trump are tied in the national voting averages, mostly conducted by liberal organizations, weighting Democrats heavily compared to Republicans.

BOTTOM LINE - BE READY FOR THEM TO BURN IT ALL DOWN.....

Once the Biden bounce is over from the NY guilty verdict against Trump, should take maybe two-three weeks, Trump should again take the lead as has happened every time the Biden regime's lawfare made headlines.

Everything the Biden regime has done to persecute Trump and bribe voters has failed to give Biden any lead that isn't within the margin of error in the polls, and the presidential election is just 6 months away.

They have nothing left, and desperate people are dangerous people.

Be ready for something big because the MSM, and those supporting Biden for 2024, have already shown they are willing to do just about anything to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president again, and all that is left is to burn it all down to delay or prevent the 2024 presidential election.

God help us all......

GOP gov. forces doctor who supported banning sex changes for minors from medical board

By Jon Brown, Christian Post Reporter Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon reportedly forced one of the state's leading radiologists to resign from the Wyoming Board of Medicine because of the doctor's public support for a law banning hormonal and surgical procedures for minors with gender dysphoria.

Dr. Eric Cubin, one of the top radiologists in Casper, was pressured to resign after the Republican governor stated he was planning to remove him from the board, according to an April 22 letter to Cubin from the governor obtained by Cowboy State Daily.

Cubin, the son of a former congresswoman, reportedly prompted Gordon to boot him in response to an email he sent in February to the 62 members of the Wyoming Legislature, urging them to support the Children Gender Change Prohibition bill.

Gordon signed the bill in March, making Wyoming the 24th U.S. state to ban cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers and body-disfiguring surgeries for minors.

The bill passed in the state's Republican-controlled House of Representatives by a vote of 55-6, and the Republican-controlled Senate passed it in a 28-2 vote the following day.

The law allows the state Board of Medicine to revoke the license of any doctor who performs such procedures on minors.

The governor expressed reluctance about some elements of the legislation, worrying that "the government is straying into the personal affairs of families."

"Our Legislature needs to sort out its intentions with regard to parental rights. While it inserts governmental prerogative in some places, it affirms parental rights in others," he said at the time.

Despite signing the bill, Gordon was concerned that Cubin's lobbying for the legislation exhibited a potential conflict of interest that he was unwilling to tolerate on a state board.

"Medical professionals should be confident that their licensure, which is their livelihood, will be handled professionally and clinically examined on merits alone," Gordon wrote to Cubin. "Even the appearance of bias can be disquieting as well as erode confidence in the board's presumed impartiality."

The governor feared Cubin's opinion could be construed as the board's unilateral position, which he claimed is unacceptable.

In a statement to The Christian Post, a spokesperson from the governor's office rejected the notion that Gordon removed Cubin from the Wyoming Board of Medicine "for supporting the transgender ban for minors, which the Governor signed."

"Governor Gordon's decision to remove him was based on the fact that Dr. Cubin's comments could give doctors, who are licensed by the Board of Medicine, a reason to be concerned that Dr. Cubin might use his position to advocate for a particular position when considering matters that come before the board," the spokesperson said.

"The Governor believes it is important that the professionals governed by the Board of Medicine have confidence that board members prosecute their responsibilities on the board in an objective and unbiased way. The Governor appreciates Dr. Cubin's position on this issue and respects his First Amendment right to share this position. However, when a member of a board chooses to express personal beliefs in a way that can be construed as speaking for the body, the Governor has elected to relieve that member of the constraints board membership requires."

Cubin maintained that his view is the majority opinion among the 27 Casper physicians he polled regarding gender procedures for minors, and he remains adamant that he did the right thing despite the negative consequences.

"At the end of the day, I stood up for my principles, I stood up for what's right, and I stood up for the children in the state of Wyoming," he told Cowboy State Daily. "Because I did that, I was removed from the board."

Cubin shared emails with the Wyoming outlet in which he noted that there are too many uncertainties regarding "gender-affirming care" for minors, which is made especially difficult because of the topic's politicized nature.

"The evidence and medical data on gender affirming care is all over the board," Cubin wrote. "Unfortunately, much of the data on both sides is politically charged and it is difficult to decipher exactly what is true and what is not true."

Cubin rebutted concerns that he presented a conflict of interest, noting that "anyone who continues to provide these services in violation of the law is putting their licensure at risk."

"There's no conflict of interest because I'd be enforcing the law," he added.

The legislation Cubin supported was first referred to as "Chloe's Law," a reference to prominent activist and detransitioner Chloe Cole, who is suing medical providers who performed a double mastectomy on her when she was a minor experiencing gender dysphoria that later subsided.

Earlier this month, the German Medical Assembly passed resolutions calling on the government to limit trans surgeries or body-altering drugs for gender dysphoric minors to clinical trials.

In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service instructed gender clinics to pause first appointments for those under 18. The move came after the release of a long-awaited review by pediatrician Hillary Cass, retired former president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, concluding that there is "no good evidence on the long-term outcomes of interventions to manage gender-related distress."

Wyoming is one of over two dozen states that have banned providers from giving or offering surgical or hormonal interventions to minors with gender dysphoria.

US Air Force promoted drag events on military bases, internal documents show

By Jon Brown, Christian Post Reporter Saturday, June 01, 2024

Freedom of Information Act documents obtained by Judicial Watch and CatholicVote.org purport to show that the U.S. Air Force has used taxpayer money to promote drag shows, drag queen story hours and other LGBT pride events for military personnel and their children.

After multiple "no records" responses to their repeated inquiries, the U.S. Department of Defense ultimately released 25 pages of documents detailing the funding of drag events on U.S. military installations, according to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

The nonprofits requested "all emails and text messages sent to and from the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd J. Austin, III, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Kathleen Hicks and the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff regarding drag shows and drag story hours on U.S. military installations."

Among their findings, the nonprofits uncovered a social media post by the Ramstein & Vogelweh Air Force Libraries in Germany that promoted Pride Month in 2021.

Judicial Watch noted that graphics in the post included a rainbow pride flag and two books that involved drag-related themes. Another graphic promoted a "Drag Queen Story Time" event at the Ramstein Library.

Another advertisement promoted a seven-week summer reading program in June 2021 that included "Drag Queen Storytime" and mentioned events such as virtual story times, teen socials, and scavenger hunts.

An additional advertisement for those 18 and older promoted another event called "Drag Karaoke," which included drink specials and prizes.

An invoice from June 2022 also shows that $400 was paid to Ms. Lexi Andrews, a drag queen who appeared at "Drag Queen Bingo" on June 23 and performed at a "Glow Party" the next day.

The records also pinpointed other adult-themed events, Judicial Watch noted.

Last May, DoD leaders intervened to halt a drag show scheduled at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, according to two defense officials and a U.S. official who spoke to NBC News.

U.S. Air Force officials reportedly approved a drag show scheduled on the base to celebrate pride month, but Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley shot down the plan and said its funding went against Pentagon policy, according to the outlet.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., grilled Austin and Milley during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on March 29, 2023, about reports of taxpayer-funded drag shows on U.S. military bases in Montana, Nevada, Virginia and Germany.

"Drag queen story hours is not something that the department funds," Austin told the committee. Milley requested to have the flyers promoting the event Gaetz was referring to and claimed he was unaware of them.

"I'd like to take a look at those, because I don't agree with those," Milley said at the time.

The Christian Post has reached out to the DoD for comment and will update this story if a response is received.

Tim Huelskamp, Ph.D., who serves as senior adviser at CatholicVote, said the DoD "has once again proven that radical leftist ideology is more important than military preparedness and protecting Americans from tangible threats at home and abroad."

"After an entire year of stonewalling, the DoD finally returned materials from just one commandin one branch, which confirmed what we feared — that taxpayer funds were being used to promote drag shows and radical gender ideology on military bases, with full approval from Air Force leadership," he added.

"How on Earth is it appropriate to spend our limited defense dollars on promoting these sexually themed events for children and adults, rather than on advancing the military's mission?" Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

"As we see in these troubling Air Force records, our nation's military is being ruined by woke ideology," he added.

Electronic WARFARE: Russia Jammed Ukraine’s Long-Range NATO Glide Bombs and Musk’s Starlink Satellites. Kiev the Moscow Nuclear Umbrella

Gospa News editorial staff 26 Maggio 2024 1

The NATO-Russia proxy war in Ukraine has become a testing ground for a new generation of military technology for high-intensity warfare, with the split-second ability to jam an enemy drone, disorient a precision artillery munition or pinpoint a hidden enemy position using radio-electronic means often becoming the difference between life and death.

Ukraine’s stocks of American-made Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) munitions are being jammed by Russian electronic warfare equipment, three informed sources familiar with the ‘problem’ told Reuters.

The Boeing/Saab Group-developed GLSDB is a ground-launched variant of Boeing’s GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb – a 129 kg glide munition with a 93 kg fragmentation warhead and a 150 km range designed for strikes against heavily entrenched targets.

The GLSDB can be fired from M270 and M142 HIMARS precision multiple launch rocket installations – which the United States began delivering to Ukraine in mid-2022, and which Russian forces initially had difficulties locating due to the systems’ rapid shoot-and-scoot [the ability to come out of cover, quickly fire and go back into hiding] capabilities.

GLSDBs began to be sent to Ukraine in early 2024 in a bid by the Pentagon to extend Ukraine’s long-range strike potential, which Kiev has used to target both military and civilian targets in the Donbass and elsewhere.

Reuters’ sources said Russian jamming equipment has been targeting the GLSDB’s GPS-supported inertial navigation system, dramatically reducing its effectiveness. One of the sources said it would take Boeing “months” to fix the problem. The report did not provide details on what percentage of the long-range weapons had rendered useless by Russian efforts.

The GLSDB is just one of the systems Ukraine’s NATO-backed forces have faced problems with thanks to Russian electronic warfare measures. Daniel Patt, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, told Congress in March that the effectiveness of US 155 mm GPS-guided Excalibur artillery shells had dropped from 70 percent to just six percent several weeks after being delivered to Kiev after Russian forces fine-tuned their electronic warfare equipment against them.

The bad news for the Pentagon regarding the GLSDB’s performance against a peer adversary comes on the heels of a New York Times report this week citing Ukrainian officials, electronic warfare specialists and frontline troops indicating that Russian electronic warfare had successfully jammed SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet terminals en masse in Kharkov region. This, the sources said, helped Russia achieve an element of surprise for its offensive in the area to establish a “sanitary zone” free of Ukrainian long-range strike systems, which Ukraine’s forces had been using this spring to target the city of Belgorod and border settlements.

We’re losing the electronic warfare fight,” a deputy commander from the Ukrainian 92ndAssault Brigade’s drone battalion said. “One day before the attacks, it just shut down. It became super, super slow.”

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk confirmed in an X post Friday that his company has been forced to spend “significant resources combating Russian jamming efforts,” and characterized Russia’s electronic warfare capabilities as “a tough problem.”

Russia has been forced to dramatically strengthen its electronic warfare capabilities amid the Ukrainian crisis, owing to the use of precision-guided NATO munitions and drones on a previously unparalleled scale.

Electronic Jamming vs Starlink Satellites

This has included everything from the jamming of guided artillery shells and extended-range Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) kits, to confusing long-range drones and disorienting missiles. Russia’s military is also doing its best to stay ahead of the curve on the battlefield, with an informed source telling Sputnik last October that EW troops were tweaking their equipment to prepare to suppress Ukraine’s F-16s once they begin arriving later this year.

Russia’s commitment to powerful electronic warfare capabilities dates back to the second half of the 20th century, when, amid preparations for a possible large-scale conflagration with NATO in the heart of Germany, Soviet military doctrines began emphasizing the need for “total integration of electronic warfare and physical destruction resources” on the battlefield. These developments have been consistently expanded and improved upon over the decades – with Russia, unlike the US, never losing focus on the creation of electronic warfare means against peer competitors.

Ukraine attacked key element of Russia’s nuclear umbrella

The US should be seen as directly responsible for a Ukrainian strike on a key element of Russia’s nuclear umbrella, Senator Dmitry Rogozin has said, warning that such attacks could lead to the collapse of the entire global nuclear security architecture.

In a statement on Telegram on Saturday, Rogozin, a senator who previously headed up the Russian space agency Roscosmos and is now in charge of a military technical center called Tsar’s Wolves, said that the attack targeted a nuclear early warning system in the southern Krasnodar Region. The Russian Defense Ministry has yet to comment on the matter, while the extent of the damage remains unclear.

Rogozin suggested that it was extremely unlikely that the strike, which Ukrainian media reported involved several drones, was carried out at Kiev’s sole initiative and without US involvement.

According to the senator, Washington has always sought to achieve military superiority over Moscow since the very dawn of the nuclear age, but this rivalry was mostly limited to a battle of minds between scientists, strategists, and policymakers.

This seems to have changed, however, as “the US has commissioned a crime by hiring an irresponsible bandit” to attack Russia’s early warning system, the official said, apparently referring to Vladimir Zelensky.

The attack apparently targeted an advanced Voronezh radar station in the city of Armavir, which went into operation in 2013. The system can detect incoming cruise and ballistic missiles at a range of 6,000km and can track up to 500 targets. During the inauguration of the system, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it would significantly increase the country’s defense capabilities in the southern and southwestern directions.

Is America Becoming An Anti-Christ Nation?

June 2, 2024 by Michael

Once upon a time, America was a Christian nation. I know that many on the left cringe when they read a statement like that, but it is true. For most of our history, the population of the United States was overwhelmingly Christian, and the values that governed our society were primarily Christian values. But of course everything has changed in recent decades. When Barack Obama boldly declared that “we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation” in 2009, he was speaking the truth. We are no longer a Christian nation and we haven’t been for a very long time. So if we aren’t a Christian nation at this point, what exactly are we?

According to the Pew Research Center, 64 percent of Americans still considered themselves to be “Christians” in 2020…

About 64% of Americans call themselves Christian today. That might sound like a lot, but 50 years ago that number was 90%, according to a 2020 Pew Research Center study. That same survey said the Christian majority in the US may disappear by 2070.

If nearly two-thirds of your people consider themselves to be “Christians”, that would seem to indicate that you are a Christian nation.

But we obviously aren’t.

Just look around.

Many of the signs and symbols and messages that we see all around us are overtly anti-Christian.

So what in the world is going on?

Ultimately, there are lots of Americans that still identify themselves as “Christians” even though they have completely abandoned everything that Christianity represents.

Joe Biden is a perfect example. He says that he is a “Christian” and he attends church regularly.

But then the rest of the time he is working very hard against virtually everything that the Bible teaches.

Of course he is far from alone.

According to George Barna, 6 percent of Americans had a “biblical worldview” in 2020, and by 2023 that figure had dropped to just 4 percent…

The first national study of Americans’ worldview since the COVID-19 lockdowns shows that the incidence of biblical worldview has fallen to a mere 4%—a drop of one third from the 6% recorded just three years earlier.

In fact, the 6% benchmark measure recorded in January 2020 may prove to be the high-water mark of biblical worldview among American adults for the foreseeable future, according to a new report from the American Worldview Inventory 2023 from the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University.

I wish that I could tell you that his numbers aren’t accurate.

But I can’t.

Barna says that there is a second group that has “a substantial number of beliefs and behaviors consistent with biblical principles”, but unfortunately that group fell from 25 percent of the population in 2020 to just 14 percent in 2023…

The number of adults who don’t possess a biblical worldview, but still hold “a substantial number of beliefs and behaviors consistent with biblical principles,” has also fallen dramatically. Only one of every seven adults (14%) belong to the category of what Barna identifies as an “Emergent Follower.” That number was 25% only three years ago.

When you add the first two groups together, it comes to a grand total of 18 percent of the population.

That is just depressing.

So what about everyone else?

Well, just about everyone else would fall into Barna’s “world citizen” category

The bulk of the American adult population82%—falls into the “World Citizen” category, described as people “who may embrace a few biblical principles but generally believe and behave in ways that are distinct from biblical teaching.” According to the report, this group has grown substantially from the 69% registered in 2020.

I think that the term “world citizen” perfectly describes most people these days.

Sadly, on at least some level the vast majority of the population has embraced the new values that are constantly being pushed on us by the western elite.

And this is clearly showing up in the poll numbers.

Survey after survey has shown that close to two-thirds of the U.S. population disapproves of the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade. Here is just one example…

About two-thirds (65%) oppose the 2022 Supreme Court decision, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, and 34% approve, numbers that have remained effectively unchanged in CNN’s polling across the nearly two years since the ruling. Those who strongly disapprove of the decision continue to outnumber those who strongly approve by a more than 2-to-1 margin.

We live in a country in which nearly two-thirds of the population claims to be Christian, but nearly two-thirds of the population also wants Roe v. Wade back.

That doesn’t make any sense at all.

Surveys on other topics tell a similar story.

According to a Gallup survey that was conducted last year, 71 percent of the population approves of gay marriage, and a Gallup survey that was conducted earlier this year discovered that 22.3 percent of Generation Z adults now identify as LGBTQ+…

Overall, each younger generation is about twice as likely as the generation that preceded it to identify as LGBTQ+. More than one in five Gen Z adults, ranging in age from 18 to 26 in 2023, identify as LGBTQ+, as do nearly one in 10 millennials (aged 27 to 42). The percentage drops to less than 5% of Generation X, 2% of baby boomers and 1% of the Silent Generation.

Bisexuality is the most common LGBTQ+ status among Generation Z, millennials and Generation X. Fifteen percent of all Generation Z adults — representing more than two-thirds of those with an LGBTQ+ identification — are bisexual.

What values are being relentlessly promoted by just about every major institution in our society?

Is it Christ and His values that are being promoted?

Or is it the opposite?

At this point, even the U.S. military is systematically promoting values that are directly opposed to the values that we find in the Bible…

Judicial Watch announced today it received 25 pages of records regarding drag shows, drag story hours and other pride events for military personnel and their dependent minors organized and paid for by the U.S. Air Force.

The documents were obtained through a May 5, 2023, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) by Judicial Watch and CatholicVote Civic Action. The Defense Department issued at least half a dozen “no records” responses to the FOIA request prior to finally releasing these records.

Jesus said that you would know a tree by the fruit that it produces.

Needless to say, the fruit that America is producing is not Christian fruit.

In fact, most of the fruit that America is producing is the kind of fruit that we would expect from an anti-Christ nation.

But even in the midst of all the darkness, God is still at work, and amazing things are happening.

For example, author John Burke has interviewed 70 different people that have actually been to heaven and have come back to tell us about it…

Imagine all the love you’ve experienced in your entire life, from parents, spouses, friends, and family — and then multiply it by a thousand. That’s the kind of love experienced by people who’ve had near-death experiences. They report being in God’s presence. John Burke, the Texas-based bestselling author of “Imagine Heaven” and now the follow-up book, “Imagine the God of Heaven,” writes of the topic vividly. Together with his wife, Kathy, of Gateway Church in Austin, he is also the president of Gateway Leadership Initiative (GLI), a nonprofit organization. He and his family live in Austin.

In an interview, Burke said he spoke with 70 “different people for ‘Imagine the God of Heaven’ — from every continent, every religious background. And yes, they encountered this God of light and love, but many of them also encountered Him as Jesus.”

And all over the world, Muslims are having supernatural encounters with Jesus that radically change their lives…

Uncharted Ministries has interviewed former Muslims who now follow Jesus, and many of them had supernatural encounters with Jesus during Ramadan. These former Muslims are sharing their stories of discovering Jesus as their savior and praying that others will have the same experience.

Husein tells Uncharted Ministries that he was once a devout Muslim and extremely anti-Christian. But one year, during the week of Easter, Husein saw a Christian preacher on TV talking all about Jesus. He could not take his eyes off the broadcast. And then something supernatural happened to him.

Suddenly, the Holy Ghost fell on me! I looked up and Jesus was there in front of me. I’d been a devout Muslim but as soon as I saw Him it was like seeing an old friend that I knew before. And I knew it was Jesus. And I knew something else. I knew that He was the Son of God!”

The God that created all things is still doing supernatural things in our day and time.

But even though we have so much evidence staring us in the face, our society continues to run away from God as rapidly as it can.

If we stay on the road that we are on, it isn’t going to lead anywhere good.

America needs to change course while there is still an opportunity to do so, and the clock is ticking…

U.S. and Germany Authorise Ukrainian Attacks Against Russia

Russia has warned that the decision marks an escalation of the war.

Zoltán Kottász — May 31, 2024

Both the United States and Germany have allowed weapons they supplied to Ukraine to be used against targets inside Russian territory. The two NATO member states have emphasised that their decision applies only to targets inside Russia near the border with the northeastern Ukrainian Kharkiv region, where Moscow launched an offensive a few weeks ago.

U.S. President Joe Biden had been under pressure to authorise the decision, with Ukraine, the Baltic states, the Scandinavian countries, and Britain urging the United States to act. Biden had refused to do so, fearing that NATO could be dragged into a war with Russia, whose president, Vladimir Putin, warned the Western military alliance that they risked the outbreak of nuclear war.

The war between Ukraine and Russia, which started with the Russian invasion more than two years ago, has reached a stalemate in the past year Recently, Moscow launched an offensive against the Kharkiv region, which borders Russia, and Russian troops have made significant territorial gains there. Russian fighter planes flying inside Russia have been supporting the offensive by firing bombs at Ukrainian defence lines and into Kharkiv, reports Reuters.

Joe Biden “recently directed his team to ensure that Ukraine is able to use U.S.-supplied weapons for counter-fire purposes in the Kharkiv region so Ukraine can hit back against Russian forces that are attacking them or preparing to attack them,” said one U.S. official.

The U.S. is the biggest supplier of weapons to Ukraine, and it recently decided to send long-range missiles known as ATACMS to Kyiv. Washington will continue to prohibit the Ukrainian military from using ATACMS, which have a range of up to 300 kilometres, for deep strikes inside Russia.

Germany has also given into pressure, with government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit announcing on Friday that Berlin has given Kyiv permission to use weapons supplied by Germany against military targets in Russia. “We are jointly convinced that Ukraine has the right under international law to defend itself against these attacks,” he said.

German policy on providing weapons has dramatically shifted, with Berlin initially only willing to send helmets to Ukraine at the beginning of Russia’s invasion. Pressure by NATO allies, and from the hawkish Greens within the government, has persuaded Social Democrat Chancellor Olaf Scholz to allow the delivery of anti-aircraft systems and battle tanks. However, Scholz has refused to authorise the supply of long-range Taurus missiles, saying they could be used to hit targets deep inside Russia.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, who is attending the ongoing NATO foreign ministers’ meeting in Prague, downplayed the threat of an escalation of the war.Ukraine has the right for self-defence, and that includes also the right to strike legitimate military targets inside Russia,” he said on Friday. He added that letting Western weapons hit targets in Russia was “nothing new” as Britain had long sent cruise missiles to Kyiv without restrictions.

French President Emmanuel Macron also said on Tuesday that Ukraine should be allowed to “neutralise” bases in Russia used to launch strikes.

NATO countries that have approved strikes with their weapons on Russian territory should be aware that their equipment and specialists will be destroyed not only in Ukraine, but also at any point from where Russian territory is attacked,” former Russian president, now deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev warned on Friday. He said all long-range weapons supplied to Ukraine were already “directly operated by servicemen from NATO countries,” which is tantamount to participation in the war against Russia.

Enough Chinese Nationals Illegally Crossed The U.S. Border Since 2021 To Make A Large Army And Are Positioned Strategically Throughout The Country - China Also Owns Large U.S. Businesses, Farmland In 29 States, One of The Largest Meat Suppliers In America

By Susan Duclos - All News Pipeline May 30, 2024

We have discussed in detail how Chinese, mostly military-aged men crossing the U.S. border, has increased 8,500% from March 2021 to March 2024, but that is just a small part of the bigger picture when we consider how much of America is literally owned by the Chinese, who with their close alliance with Russia, are hostile to the U.S.

The chart provided in the above-linked ANP article, shown below again, offers a visual of what we are up against as the Biden regime allows more and more foreign nations, including from countries highly hostile to the U.S., into the country.

A foreign army within our border.

Then on May 29, 2024, ANP published a piece titled "US Admiral Warns Foreign Nationals Are Breaching U.S. Naval Bases 2-3 Times A Week Now: 'They Are Coming At Us Fast And Thick With An Unprecedented Surge Of Chinese Nationals'.

Caudle further stated, “This is Russian, Chinese. This comes from all these different nations. We’re seeing an uptick in it.”

Then yesterday, we see a piece on MSN first published on New York Post, asking "Are Biden officials covering up an attempted terror attack by illegal immigrants?"

This time it was the Quantico Marine Corps base, where two Jordanian illegal aliens drove a box truck to the gates of Quantico.

They claimed to be Amazon delivery drivers, and tried to access a site that houses the FBI training academy, military officer training schools, and military criminal investigations and intelligence commands.

Quick-thinking military police stopped the truck, and charged the men with trespassing before turning them over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

No one knows what happened after that because the government refused to answer whether these men were on any terror watchlist, and in fact, covered up the entire story for two weeks until a local news outlet broke the story and forced them to finally admit it had happened.

According to the local reported that broke that story, one of those men were on our terror watchlist.

It gets much worse.

On May 24, 2024, Chief National Security Correspondent for Fox News, Jennifer Griffin, reported "New details on shooting in Carthage, North Carolina that involves an elite SF Army Colonel and two Chechens (Russians) who were in the country illegally. Special Ops have reported increasing foreign surveillance of them and their families raising concerns about vulnerabilities. (Video)

Via Twitchy:

A mysterious shooting in North Carolina north of Fort Liberty, formerly Fort Bragg, not far from where some of America’s most elite U.S. Special Operations forces live and train is under investigation by the Army Criminal Investigation Division as well as local police. The shooting in Carthage, North Carolina occurred May 3 at 8:15 p.m. following a phone call about a suspected trespasser near a Special Forces soldier's property.

Two Chechen men who spoke broken English were found near the soldier's home. The family alleges the suspected intruder, 35-year-old Ramzan Daraev of Chicago was taking photos of their children. When confronted near a power line in a wooded part of the property, an altercation ensued and Daraev was shot several times at close range. A second man, Dzhankutov Adsalan, was in a vehicle some distance from the incident and was questioned by authorities and then released. The Moore County Sheriff's office is leading the investigation.

The Biden regime is also refusing to "reveal the nationalities of people on the FBI terror watchlist arrested at the border by Border Patrol, citing "privacy interests" of those involved," according to Fox News.

The privacy interests of illegal aliens, on the FBI terror list, is more important that telling us where the terrorists entering the country illegally, are from.

Instead of protecting Americans from the terrorists, they are protecting the terrorists from Americans.

Unreal.

LETTING THE CHINESE BUY AMERICA......

China is also buying up U.S. companies. The most concerning would be Smithfield Foods, the largest-ever Chinese acquisition of a U.S. company. Smithfield Foods is a leading pork producer. (Source)

Other U.S. companies, include AMC Theaters, General Electric Appliances, Motorola Mobility, Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Legendary Entertainment, Ingram Micro, Nexteer Automotive, Ironman Triathlon, The Cleveland Cavaliers, Riot Games, Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center, Universal Music Group (minority stake), Fisker Automotive, WeWork, and Brookstone.

Related: Chinese Companies Listed on Major U.S. Stock Exchanges

Another disturbing fact comes from a link over at Steve Quayle's website on May 29, with a note saying "LOOK AT THE MAP," is a piece from the Daily Mail, with said map showing how much U.S. farmland the Chinese own, and a bill by a Republican congresswoman trying to prevent foreign entities from buying any more U.S. farmland.

Chinese entities own farmland in 29 out of the U.S.'s 50 states. A total of 40 million acres of U.S. farmland are owned by foreign entities.

The map in question, for those who don't want to click over, is below:

BOTTOM LINE....

Countries hostile to the U.S. including Russia and China, are crossing the border illegally, testing the security of our military bases, with reports listing the Navy, Marines and air Force as targets, one of which a reportedly on the FBI watchlist, but wasn't admitted to until a local news reporter broke the story.

This leaves the very pertinent question of how many other foreign nationals on the terror watchlist have not only crossed over the border illegally, but have been trying to breach our military bases? If they kept the one incident secret for two weeks until a reporter broke the story, Americans can have no confidence whatsoever that the Biden regime would be forthright with the nation about the others.

A military branch-sized Chinese force of military-aged men, are already in the U.S. illegally, with an 8,500% increase from March 2021 to March 2024, along with the Chinese owning farmland in 20 of the 50 states, as well as owning and many U.S. companies, and stakes in many others, should be a huge red flag to all Americans.

We don't have to wait for Russia and/or China to nuke us, all they have to do is activate the forces they already have in America, refuse to allow food from any of the farmland they own to be bought by Americans, and they have already won half the battle.

We also have no way to know what they have on the farmland, for all we know, they could have an arsenal, bombs, and other weaponry, just waiting for China to activate the cells within America.

Denver metro hit by largest hail in 35 years as baseball-sized stones pummel area

May 31, 2024

The Denver metropolitan area experienced an intense hailstorm Thursday, which led to the largest hailstones recorded in the county in the last 35 years, resulting in widespread damage.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a ‘destructive’ Severe Thunderstorm Warning for the Denver area late Thursday evening, emphasizing the life-threatening situation with baseball-sized hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph.

The largest hail report in Denver County measured 2.75 inches in Commerce City on Thursday. It’s the largest hail report in the county since 1989, the FOX Forecast Center said.

Overall, there have been at least 55 hail reports of at least 1-inch diameter around the Denver area.

Aurora police said they had a busy night responding to security alarms as hail caused damage to vehicles, businesses and homes after the storm passed through and triggered the alarms.

“With the influx in calls regarding the alarms, we’re asking the affected public to safely check their property for damage or a triggered alarm if possible,” officers warned on social media.

After a tumultuous few days in eastern Colorado, the forecast for the beginning of the weekend remains more of the same.

Severe storms are anticipated to develop early Saturday afternoon, bringing with them the potential for golf-ball sized hail, frequent lightning and wind gusts exceeding 60 mph, particularly in the areas just east of Denver. [FoxWeather]

Tyranny is upon us: Law and juries are weaponized.

May 30, 2024 | Categories: Articles & Columns | Tags: | Print This Article Print This Article

Paul Craig Roberts

Jury Finds Trump Guilty on All 34 Felony Charges in New York Trial

Keep in mind that these are 34 made-up felonies based on how an expense was recorded by accountants and attorneys. Trump did not record the expense.  The expense was recorded according to accounting standards.

Keep in mind that a single accounting reporting charge, a misdemeanor, was magically turned into 34 federal felonies of election violations, if memory serves, the argument being that Trump won the election by misreporting the expense. There are so many civil and criminal show trials going on against Trump that it is hard to keep track of all the absurdities. Keep in mind that it is a case without complainants, without harmed parties.

It is a case brought by a prosecutor who can show no party harmed.

What is frightening is that legally this is a case for which there are no legal grounds for bringing it. Yet, the bar associations, the law schools, the media said nothing. Getting Trump was so important that law was sacrificed for the purpose. Trump’s demonization made a fair trial impossible, and few jurors can resist using their power against a rich person.

The weaponization of law in order to interfere with an election–in other words the prosecutor is guilty of interfering in an election–the charge brought against Trumpmeans the future of America is tyranny.

An appeal will be made, but a state where justice is as corrupt as New York is incapable of producing a decision based on law.

If there is any fight left in Americans, and I am unsure, a prison sentence from the totally corrupt judge should launch a civil war. Many would say it is about time or past time.

If not, the people have submitted to tyranny.

The North submitted to Lincoln’s tyranny. The South did not. Little is left of the South. It is unclear what stands against the tyranny of Washington.

Japanese Leader Apologizes to the Unvaccinated: ‘You Were Right, Vaccines Are Killing Millions of Our Loved Ones’

May 31, 2024 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US 3 Comments

Kazuhiro Haraguchi, the former Japanese Minister for Internal Affairs, has become the first major politician to apologize to the unvaccinated for the tsunami of deaths occuring among the vaccinated population.

Earlier this week, huge numbers of Japanese citizens took to the streets to protest against the crimes against humanity perpetrated by globalist organizations such by World Health Organization (WHO) and World Economic Forum (WEF) during the pandemic.

During an opening speech at the protests, Haraguchi delivered a powerful and emotional apology for the huge numbers of deaths now occurring as a result of the deadly mRNA roll-out.

Haraguchi began by addressing the grief and loss felt by families who have lost loved ones who were coerced into taking the COVID jab. With a deep sense of sincerity, he extended his condolences and took responsibility for the failings of those in power. “I apologize to all of you. So many have died, and they shouldn’t have,” he said.

Thelibertybeacon.com reports: One of the key points in Haraguchi’s speech was his criticism of the ban on Ivermectin, a drug developed by Dr. Satoshi Omura, which he believed could have played a significant role in combating the pandemic. Haraguchi questioned the motives behind the ban, suggesting that economic interests were prioritized over public health. “Why? Because they are cheap. They don’t want it because it will interfere with the sales of the vaccines,” he argued. This statement drew loud applause from the crowd, many of whom felt that corporate profits had taken precedence over human lives.

Haraguchi then shared a deeply personal story about his own health struggles. After receiving vaccines, he developed a severe illness, specifically a rapidly progressing form of cancer. “This time last year, I had neither eyebrows nor hair. Two out of the three supposed vaccines I received were lethal batches,” he revealed. This candid account of his battle with cancer, which included significant physical changes like hair loss, struck a chord with the audience. He recounted an incident where his appearance became a point of distraction in the Diet, with an opponent focusing more on his wig than the issues at hand.

Adding to the conversation, Haraguchi disclosed that he was not the only member of Japan’s National Diet (legislature) to suffer adverse effects from vaccines. He mentioned that three of his colleagues had been severely affected, with some even hospitalized. “They are falling to pieces, some hospitalized. But they don’t speak up,” he explained. This revelation underscored a broader issue: the reluctance or inability of public figures to discuss their personal health challenges openly.

Haraguchi was particularly passionate about the attempts to silence those who question current policies and government actions. He recounted a recent incident where he was banned from speaking on Channel 3 after an interview with its president. “The other day, I spoke with the President of Channel 3, and I was banned. They are trying to silence our voices,” he stated. This attempt to censor dissenting voices highlighted a critical concern about freedom of speech and expression. Haraguchi urged the audience to remain steadfast in their resolve, saying, “They are trying to block our freedom, our resistance, our power. But we will never lose.”

In the conclusion of his speech, Haraguchi issued a rallying call for action. He urged the people to stand united in challenging the government and its questionable decisions. “Let’s overthrow this government,” he proclaimed, emphasizing the need for change and accountability. He called on legislators to continue fighting for the people’s lives and freedoms, “Let’s make it happen,” he concluded.

The protest that is happening right now (31st May 2024), which aims to draw tens of thousands of participants, marked a significant moment in the global discourse about pandemic management and health policies. Haraguchi’s speech, filled with personal anecdotes and strong criticisms, resonated deeply with the attendees.

Kentucky high school student Micah Price denied diploma after praising Jesus in his ‘off-script’ graduation speech

By Social Links for Nicholas McEntyre  Published May 30, 2024  Updated May 30, 2024, 7:08 a.m. ET

A Kentucky high school allegedly withheld a graduate’s diploma when the student went off script during his graduation speech to preach his belief in Jesus.

Micah Price received the green light to praise Jesus Christ in his commencement speech at Campbell County High School in Alexandria, Ky., on May 24, but followed his address with “urging other Christians to stand up.”

“Class, before another word leaves my mouth, I must give the honor, the praise and the glory to my lord and savior Jesus Christ,” Price said to a packed Truist Arena at Northern Kentucky University.

His oration received resounding applause from the audience before he continued with his holy message.

Who in his very words tells us he is the light, he is the way, the truth and life. Class, anyone in the audience today, I’m here to tell you that if you don’t have any of those things in your life and can’t seem to find the answer, then my lord and savior is your answer.”

When Price shifted his prepared remarks, school officials weren’t pleased with his off-script moment and confronted the graduate after the ceremony.

The school reprimanded Price and denied him his diploma.

“After the speech was over, one of the principals came in, tapped me on the shoulder, very politely and professionally told me that I was going to have to go in front of the board and explain what I did because I went off script,” Price said in a video posted to TikTok on Sunday.

The school district had allowed Price to thank his “lord and savior Jesus Christ” before telling him to read off the preapproved script.

All speakers were told that going off their submitted speech, or any unplanned choices at graduation, may have repercussions as they would at any school function,” Superintendent Shelli Wilson told WKRC.

Off-program choices such as speech, signs, and caps in support of any cause or religion, injecting inappropriate language, or political election statements could lead to something other than this outpouring of Christian faith,” Wilson said.

Price claimed he had all the preaching to his classmates in the script but was told to take it out before it was approved.

“I had that in my script, and they told me that I was; they said that it was a public institution; and they didn’t want to divide their audience or my audience because I was speaking,” Price told the outlet. “I think it was fine that I thanked him, but going in and urging them to follow him and urging other Christians to stand up and talk about him might be the thing they didn’t want.”

Price told his TikTok followers that he had no bad blood with Campbell County or the principals as they were “just doing their job.”

He also took full responsibility for the incident, saying he went against school policy because “he serves a higher power.”

I do no one’s bidding but God. So, if anyone’s in the wrong, I am. I deserve to get punished.”

Price received his diploma on Wednesday after a long holiday weekend.

“Holding it is just an answered prayer, that’s all it is, just an answered prayer,” Price told the outlet.

The incoming US Air Force Academy cadet says he has no regrets and would “do it again times two.”

Brawling migrants battered, bit cops who turned up to break up fight at Roosevelt Hotel

By Social Links for Larry Celona ,  Social Links for Joe Marino and  Social Links for Patrick Reilly

Published May 29, 2024, 6:08 p.m. ET

Two groups of brawling migrants ganged up on a pair NYPD officers who arrived to break up a fight in the Roosevelt Hotel on May 19battering the cops and biting one, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Both cops were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, and four migrants were arrested three of whom were free after prior arrests, according to sources.

Police responded to the storied 45th Street hotel, which has been converted to house asylum seekers, around 2:15 p.m on May 19 in response to a reported dispute between the migrants there, sources said.

Inside the hotel, the cops were surrounded by the two groups — similar to the Times Square attack on NYPD officers in January, sources said.

One officer was bitten in his left arm and was bruised on his left leg.

Another cop suffered injuries to his head, right elbow and wrist. One of the assailants also tried to steal his hat as a trophy, according to sources.

One of the officers’ cameras fell off in the fracas and someone stole it.

Both officers were transported to Mount Sinai West in stable condition.

Hotel resident Kennedy Jesus Mavarez Lugo, 29, was charged with assaulting a police officer.

Nicol Cedeno, 24, who also lives at the hotel, was also charged with assaulting a police officer. He was previously charged twice for stealing clothes and kitchenware from a Midtown TJ Maxx and Marshalls in February, sources said.

Alexander Ayala, 24, a Roosevelt resident, was charged with attempted robbery for trying to grab the police officer’s had. He has a previous domestic violence assault charge from December.

Yhonneiber Milano, 19, was charged with robbery and obstructing governmental administration charges. He was arrested in February for criminal possession of stolen property.

Prosecutors requested between $10,000 and $30,000 partially secured bonds for each defendant. All were granted supervised release by a judge.

The brawl was the latest of several violent encounters between migrants and New York’s Finest.

Last month, a group of five Venezuelan migrants attacked NYPD officers after they were caught red-handed stealing from an Upper East Side Target, sending one officer to the hospital. Four out of the five repeat offenders were cut loose and are back on the streets.

In January, a mob of migrants attacked NYPD officers in Times Square. So far seven individuals have been charged in connection to the incident and several were offered plea deals earlier this month.

A massive, multi-use mega-tower is expected to replace the run-down and overcrowded Roosevelt Hotel, which is owned by the government of Pakistan, once the migrants move out — possibly by the end of the year.

A city in California has been accused of banning chaplains from praying in Jesus’ name

A California city has been accused of wrongfully ordering two chaplains to stop praying in the name of Jesus Christ, which a legal group argues violates their religious freedom.

The First Liberty Institute sent a complaint letter to the Carlsbad City Council on Tuesday regarding the City Manager Scott Chadwick allegedly ordering fire chaplain Denny Cooper and police chaplain J.C. Cooper to stop praying in Jesus’ name.

According to the letter, Chadwick told the chaplains of a new standard in separate conversations in April.

“Because the chaplains cannot in good conscience erase the name of Jesus from their prayers, this order deprives first responders of the solace and spiritual strength that the Chaplains’ volunteer ministry has provided for nearly two decades,” the letter reads.

“Therefore, we urge the City Council to return to its longstanding practice of inviting the Chaplains to pray freely in accordance with their sincere religious beliefs.”

FLI Counsel Kayla Toney, who authored the letter, told The Christian Post via email that the institute became aware of the situation through a “former client who we helped with a different religious liberty issue.”

Toney took issue with the city manager’s reported argument that praying in Jesus’ name constituted harassment of non-Christians and created a hostile work environment.

This is not a true or accurate understanding of the law, which has always protected the prayers and expressions of religious Americans,” she said. “Ironically, the city manager’s order has created a hostile environment for the Chaplains and many other people of faith living in Carlsbad.”

Toney believes that while “we do see increasing hostility toward people of faith” in the United States, the laws were “changing in a positive direction.”

In Kennedy v. Bremerton, the Supreme Court overruled the ‘Lemon Testwhich was used to purge expressions of faith from public life,” Toney explained.

“Now the Court looks to history and tradition, and our nation has a long tradition of public prayers by chaplains according to their sincere religious beliefs. So there’s a lot of work left to do, but also good reason for hope.

The Christian Post reached out to city officials for a response to the complaint letter. They did not return comment by press time.

In 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Town of Greece v. Galloway that a New York town could have ministers pray Christian invocations as part of their official meetings.

Justice Anthony Kennedy delivered the court’s opinion, concluding that “legislative prayer, while religious in nature, has long been understood as compatible with the Establishment Clause.”

Medvedev again Warns NATO - stop what you're doing or nuclear consequences

Hal Turner World May 31, 2024 Hits: 473

The Deputy Chairman of the Russian Federation Council, Dmitry Medvedev, tried desperately again today to warn the US and NATO of nuclear consequences if they continue on the path they are on against Russia.

On Social Media, Medvedev wrote the following:

Western countries that allegedly “approved the use” of their extended-range weapons on Russian territory (regardless of whether we are talking about old or new parts of our country) must clearly understand the following:

1. All their military equipment and specialists fighting against us will be destroyed both on the territory of the former Ukraine and in other countries if attacks are launched from there against the territory of Russia.

2. Russia proceeds from the assumption that all long-range strike systems used by the former Ukraine are already directly operated by NATO military personnel. This is not "military assistance" but participation in the war against us. Such actions can very well become a casus belli.

3. NATO will have to decide how to classify the consequences of possible retaliatory strikes on the equipment/objects/military personnel of individual member countries in the context of Articles 4 and 5 of the Washington Treaty.

In all likelihood, the NATO leadership wants to pretend that we are talking about sovereign decisions of individual countries of the North Atlantic Alliance to support the Kyiv regime, and there is no reason to apply the rule of the 1949 Treaty on collective self-defense here.

These are dangerous and harmful misconceptions. Such “individual assistance” from NATO countries against Russia, be it controlling their long-range cruise missiles or sending a contingent of troops to Ukraine, is a serious escalation of the conflict. The former Ukraine and its NATO allies will receive a response of such destructive force that the Alliance itself simply will not be able to resist being drawn into the conflict.

And no matter how much retired NATO farts chatter that Russia will never use non-strategic nuclear weapons against b. In Ukraine, and even more so in individual NATO countries, life is much worse than their frivolous reasoning.

A few years ago, they insisted that Russia would not enter into an open military conflict with the Bandera regime, so as not to quarrel with the West. They miscalculated. There is a war going on.

The use of tactical nuclear weapons can also be miscalculated. Although this would be a fatal mistake. After all, as the President of Russia rightly noted, European countries have a very high population density. And for those enemy countries whose lands are further than the coverage area of tactical nuclear weapons, there is finally a strategic potential.

And this, alas, is not intimidation or a nuclear bluff. The current military conflict with the West is developing according to the worst possible scenario. There is a constant escalation in the power of applicable NATO weapons. Therefore, today no one can rule out the transition of the conflict to its final stage.

Top Biden aides signal openness to letting Ukraine strike Russia with US weapons

No final decision has been made, but the consideration comes amid mounting pressure from allies and Democrats.

By Matt Berg, Alexander Ward and Nahal Toosi  05/29/2024 03:30 PM EDT

Two senior Biden administration officials Wednesday opened the door to allowing Ukraine to use American-donated weapons to strike inside Russia.

The move, if made, would come as European allies, lawmakers and Ukrainian officials exert pressure on the White House to lift the restrictions, and as Russia has made major advances on the battlefield. It also suggests that President Joe Biden and his team are increasingly worried about Kyiv’s ability to fend off Russia’s attacks, especially its latest advance in Ukraine’s second-largest city of Kharkiv.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken signaled the possible change during a visit to Moldova when pressed by reporters. A “hallmark” of the Biden administration’s approach toward Ukraine since Russia launched its full-scale invasion two years ago “has been to adapt as the conditions have changed, as the battlefield has changed, as what Russia does has changed.”

“We’ve adapted and adjusted, too, and we’ll continue to do that,” he continued.

Shortly afterward, National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby, while stating that there’s “no change” in the current policy that says Ukraine can’t use U.S.-supplied weapons to strike inside Russian territory, also noted that America’s “support to Ukraine has evolved appropriately.”

Two other Biden administration officials cautioned that no final decision has been made and that Blinken and Kirby were describing a general trend of American support for Ukraine during the war — one of initial caution followed by permission. They were not necessarily guaranteeing a forthcoming shift.

The topic is “under consideration,” a U.S. official familiar with the issue said. Both were granted anonymity to speak about sensitive internal deliberations.

Kyiv hasn’t seen concrete movement on the matter from the Biden administration, according to a person close to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s office. Zelenskyy, during a visit to Belgium on Tuesday, begged Western governments to “please give us permission” to use their weapons to strike targets in Russia’s sovereign territory.

The U.S. restrictions “significantly reduce the effectiveness of partners’ assistance and neutralize the efforts made,” according to an internal Ukrainian government document on Wednesday setting out talking points for Ukrainian officials, obtained by POLITICO.

Biden has faced mounting pressure at home to lift the restriction, including from Democrats, and foreign allies’ decisions to give Ukraine the go-ahead to use their transferred weapons on Russian soil have added to that pressure.

This month, U.K. Foreign Minister David Cameron said Kyiv could use British weapons to strike sovereign Russian territory. Then on Monday, NATO’s parliamentary assembly adopted a resolution calling on Western countries to allow Ukraine to use weapons to strike military targets inside Russia.

The issue gathered momentum on Tuesday, when French President Emmanuel Macron opened the door to Ukraine using donated weapons to “neutralize” Russian military sites.

“We’re not being escalatory by doing this,” Macron continued during a joint press conference alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, arguing that Ukraine should be allowed to hit targets in Russian territory where missiles are being shot from. Scholz didn’t go as far but still signaled his openness to the idea, saying Ukraine’s use of Western weaponsmust always be within the framework of international law.”

Also this week, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said: “By having too many restrictions we are tying one hand of the Ukrainian armed forces on their back.”

The Biden administration has changed other Ukraine policies after allies have done so, namely sending long-range missiles after London and Paris delivered their versions to Kyiv.

Many top U.S. lawmakers are publicly supportive of the idea.

Last week, House Speaker Mike Johnson said Ukrainians have been unable to defend themselves because of the Biden administration’s policy. A group of bipartisan lawmakers led by House Intelligence Chair Mike Turner (R-Ohio) sent the Pentagon a letter asking military leaders to lift the restriction.

Yes, Donald Trump can still be president as a convicted felon

Donald Trump found guilty in New York hush money trial

The Alito Scandal Is Worse Than It Seems

Can Trump run for president from prison? Yes, and it’s been done before.

I haven’t seen a single person in the House or Senate who didn’t support this idea,” said Oleksandra Ustinova, the head of Ukraine’s special parliamentary commission on arms and munitions, who met with several lawmakers in Washington this month. They noted that Kyiv had watched as Russian troops massed on the border preparing to strike at Kharkiv, and could not hit the formations with their U.S.-supplied missiles because of Washington’s rule.

On Wednesday, 60 former officials and scholars sent Biden a letter, obtained by POLITICO, demanding that he lift the restriction because it could help Ukraine fend off the attack on Kharkiv and prevent other large-scale Russian offensives elsewhere.

We must finally learn from Ukraine’s successes at calling out Russian bluster that it is not escalatory for Ukraine to defend itself. The past two years have shown that if we allow the U.S. to be held hostage to the Kremlin’s threats of escalation, Russia gains the upper hand and Ukrainian civilians pay the price,” wrote the group.

The letter’s signatories include retired Gen. Philip Breedlove, the former top U.S. commander in Europe, and multiple former American ambassadors to Ukraine.

It's Falling Hard Now

All over the economy, metrics of all kinds are rapidly tripping downward.

David Haggith Jun 01, 2024 ∙ Paid

So, the bad news keeps rolling in for the stock market, even on a good stock day when the Dow soared 575 points because we caught an inflation beat that nudged down. This time it was in the PCE report. Last time it was in CPI. The CPI number didn’t look anywhere near as helpful once you looked beneath the surface, and I suspect this one won’t with the same kind of Deeper Dive. So, I’ll be covering that this weekend. Right now, I want to focus on what happened in the economy this week and in stocks as related news continue to pour in today.

On the basic economic front, the Chicago Purchase Manager’s Index, a major report that covers the upper midwest, came in all-out horrible. Zero Hedge referred to it as “craters to depression levels.” I wouldn’t go quite that far, but it’s close. Let’s say it cratered to our two latests and deepest recession levels.

Deep to darkest deep in recession territory. Almost as low as the Great Recession got during its worst months and almost as low as the Covidcrash during the month when most of the world was forced to close shop. This recession hasn’t even officially started yet, yet this major set of metrics keeps falling down a very steep set of stairs.

(In the numbers below, “50” is where recessionary economic decline begins.)

After unexpectedly slumping last month to 37.9, the Chicago PMI index cratered even more unexpectedly in May, when it defied hopes of a rebound to 41.5, and instead tumbled even more, sliding to a cycle low of 35.4 which was not only below the lowest estimate, but was staggeringly low.

Indeed, if what purchase managers are seeing looks almost on par with two historically very deep recessions (though the last one was brief because it was created artificially and turned back on via the same legal mechanisms used to shut the world off), then how are we not already in recession?

Remember that former Fed Chair Ben Burn-the-banky infamously said in the summer of 2008 that there wasn’t a recession anywhere in site, and then the National Bureau of Economic Research (the NBER, which officially declares US recessions) came along a few months later and said we had actually already been in one for half a year when Gentle Ben made that proud proclamation of Fed economic success, and then it turned out to be the greatest recession since the Great Depression!

Zero Hedge kicks it up a notch:

… which seems to suggest that at least according to Chicago-based purchasing managers, the economy is in a depression.

It wasn’t just that everything measured in the Chicago region fell, it was that many things fell at a faster rate than in all the previous months when the Chicago PMI had already been falling. The decline is steep and deep.

So there was that …

Software enthusiasm gets its soft head caved in

…and there was this:

Software stocks got massacred this week to such extent that BofA predicted today that tech may be the next pain trade for stocks. Of course tech had been, by and in large, the only positive area in stocks due to anything connected with AI riding high on the frenzy of AI love. However AI seems to have gotten a case of strep sewer breath this week because suddenly no one wants to kiss it.

Market breadth during this tumultuous week utterly collapsed:

… also looking nearly as bad as it did during the deep belly of the Great Recession back when there was “no recession anywhere in sight.”

Investors betting that technology behemoths will continue to fuel the rally in equities could be in for a rough ride when other sectors start to catch up, according to strategists at Bank of America Corp….

Other potential sore points on the horizon include a drop in US equities and a widening in investment-grade bond spreads, Galou said by email.

In fact, software stocks generally got clobbered this week. It wasn’t just Salesforce, as I reported on yesterday: UiPath, another AI driven business software platform, plunged 34%. Other software companies followed in the downdraft.

The “consensual hallucination” about AI, as economist Wolf Richter is calling it, called in sick this last week. The cave-in at UiPath caused a big shakeup in corporate leadership. Apparently, the company still has to be run by humans, and they are not performing well or are behaving badly.

According to Richter,

the whole thing is corporate hogwash to cover up chaos.

So, when you have narrow breadth throughout the market, and the big leaders start doing that, how can that be good?

Bonds go bonk

Bonds are not really bonkers because they finally returned to what they should have been doing since last October, but they are bonking stocks on the head. While bond yields got some reprieve today due to that whiff of PCE inflation hope I’ll be digging into this weekend with paid subscribers, they have really gouged stocks all over the world this week,

Global bond investors are coming to terms with the likelihood that interest rates are going to stay high for the foreseeable future.

From the US and Germany to Australia and Japan, the past two weeks have been punishing for investors who have clung to hopes for rolling rate cuts this year from the world’s biggest central banks. The reality is, inflation has yet to be fully tamed, and that’s put central banks on guard and left bondholders with losses.

And that future was “foreseeable” because it has been foreseen and spelled out here each step of the way since last summer, saying we’d get here. Investors had to roll their rate-cut hopes with their impact on stock pricing along month after month and are still rolling.

Global government debt lost about 1.3% since May 16 — around the time when many yields were at their lows of the month, according to a Bloomberg Index. The sector is down about 5% so far this year, erasing all of the gains from late last year, when optimism over the prospect of imminent worldwide rate cuts was at its peak.

The selloff deepened Friday after euro area inflation quickened more than expected in May, driving the 10-year German yield to the highest level in over six months….

This was supposed to be the year of the bond, and it’s proven not to be,” said Ian Pollick, global head of FICC strategy at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. “We are in higher-for-longer right now. So bond markets are trying to recalibrate.”

That is what happens when you live outside of reality, believing in fantasies about inflation, ignoring months of rising inflation, and clinging to things whispered by Fed Chair Jerome Powell that the Fed never actually said in its policy statements or minutes.

Once pricing in almost seven quarter-point Fed rate reductions in 2024, US swaps traders are now barely betting on one reduction, and officials are keeping alive the potential further rate hikes.

Markets largely chose to ignore the rate-hike talk, while I chose to start the rate-hike talk on GoldSeek Radio before you heard a word from the Fed on that because it was what inflation dictated, while the Fed itself was living on second-hand dreams that its sticky inflation would now prove transitory. (You can listen to this week’s GoldSeek Radio Nugget here where I talk about gold, central-bank moves, housing’s delayed impact on inflation and new MBS troubles breaking out as they did in 2008.)

Much of the pressure has emanated from the US, where weak Treasury auctions in recent days have fanned concerns over investor demand at a time when the US is selling more bonds than ever.

That’s not going away. That’s something I and others have been reading from our radar screens for months, explaining that it was just a mathematical fact that a high supply of Treasury bonds was coming and that would create a big problem for the Fed and Treasury as the Treasury was losing international buyers.

Auctions of two-, five- and seven-year Treasury notes all drew higher-than-anticipated yields, a sign interest in buying the securities fell short of expectations.

Inflation’s return to rising has been global. Rising inflation was reported for Europe, Australia and Japan today. In Europe, unemployment also remains at an all-time low, just as in the US, giving central banks no apparent reason to shift back into easing.

“The key thing, let’s be clear, is going to be inflation,” he said. “If these wage numbers don’t come down and service inflation doesn’t come down in the months ahead, this might be the first [ECB] rate cut for a while before we get anything else coming through. And I think that’s going to be even more important for the Fed.”

Inflation has always been the key thing in these editorials. Of course, endless rolling back of rate cuts keeps the needed rate-hike scenario in play, and that is where massive recalibration in stocks would likely take place if that were to happen:

“The risk – the thing that will finally break the marketis that the Fed opens the door to interest rate hikes,” Trindade said. “That is not our central scenario, but investors must have it at the back of their minds.”

Higher for longer” is getting dangerous

Higher for Longer Rates Mean No Escape From the Debt Squeeze

Companies going bust, mounting credit card debt, higher mortgage bills.

The highest interest rates in years are taking a toll from the US to Australia, creating cracks in economies despite low unemployment and booming stock markets. Even where consumer spending looks solid, it’s often being funded by borrowing, from credit cards to “Buy Now Pay Later” services.

It’s all part of the new normal, a world where the floor for rates is much higher and where corporate, household and government borrowers have to accept that this backdrop is sticking around for longer.

As consumers and businesses and stock and bond investors all wake up from their delusions to face this reality (consumers and businesses perhaps not being so delusional as the investor crowd), you’re going to see some rapid gearing down for recession. Chicago PMI and this week’s earlier Dallas survey say that gearing down is already well underway. It’s a stealth recession—one made of stagflation—that won’t likely be declared until it is deeply entrenched due to the reporting agencies being the incumbent government that wants to get re-elected and due to no one understanding that tight labor in the present times means weak labor.

So, this recession will fly in under the radar and won’t be declared unless and until it becomes so obvious that the declaration can no longer be avoided or denied. The wake-up calls are coming in now:

Bank of Montreal shares plunged on loan-loss concerns, prompting analysts at Scotiabank to respond that “the ‘higher-for-longer’ rate scenario is a reality.” It “appears to be impacting credit performance” more than analysts or management expected, they said.

One of the articles below lays out numerous troubles that are piling up in various sectors of the US and global economy, but the above editorial gives you the gist of it all.

Tornados, power outages in US kill at least 20 as storms carve path of ruin across multiple states: ‘It’s a big mess’

By Associated Press  Published May 27, 2024, 10:39 a.m. ET

VALLEY VIEW, Texas — Powerful storms killed at least 20 people, injured hundreds and left a wide trail of destruction across Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas after obliterating homes and destroying a truck stop where dozens sought shelter during the latest deadly weather to strike the central U.S.

The storms inflicted their worst damage in a region spanning from north of Dallas to the northwest corner of Arkansas.

On Monday, forecasters said the greatest risk would shift to the east, covering a broad swath of the country from Alabama to near New York City.

Seven deaths were reported in Cooke County, Texas, near the Oklahoma border, where a tornado Saturday night plowed through a rural area near a mobile home park, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said at a news conference Sunday.

The dead included two children, ages 2 and 5.

Three family members were found dead in one home, according to the county sheriff.

Eight people died statewide in Arkansas, Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed in a news conference Sunday evening.

An emergency official said two of the deaths were attributed to the circumstances of the storm but not directly caused by weather, including a person who suffered a heart attack and another who was deprived of oxygen due to a loss of electricity.

The deaths included a 26-year-old woman who was found dead outside a destroyed home in Olvey, a small community in Boone County, according to Daniel Bolen of the county’s emergency management office. One person died in Benton County, and two more bodies were found in Marion County, officials said.

In Oklahoma, two people died in Mayes County, east of Tulsa, officials said.

The injured included guests at an outdoor wedding.

Three people have died in Kentucky. Gov. Andy Beshear declared a state of emergency early Monday in a post on social media platform X, citing “multiple reports of wind damage and tornadoes.”

The small community of Charleston took a direct hit from the storm Sunday night, where several homes were destroyed and utilities were knocked out.

“It’s a big mess,” said Rob Linton, who lives in Charleston and is the fire chief of nearby Dawson Springs. “Trees down everywhere. Houses moved. Power lines are down.

No utilities whatsoever – no water, no power.”

Charleston is an unincorporated community two miles north of Dawson Spring, which was devastated by a tornado in late 2021.

Beshear’s father, former two-term Gov. Steve Beshear, grew up in Dawson Springs.

In Texas, about 100 people were injured and more than 200 homes and structures destroyed, Abbott said, sitting in front of a ravaged truck stop near the small agricultural community of Valley View. The area was among the hardest hit, with winds reaching an estimated 135 mph (217 kph), officials said.

“The hopes and dreams of Texas families and small businesses have literally been crushed by storm after storm,” said Abbott, whose state has seen successive bouts of severe weather, including storms that killed eight people in Houston earlier this month.

Abbot signed an amended severe weather disaster declaration on Sunday to include Denton, Montague, Cooke and Collin on a list of counties already under a disaster declaration sparked by storms and flooding in late April.

Hugo Parra, who lives in Farmers Branch, north of Dallas, said he rode out the storm with 40 to 50 people in the bathroom of the truck stop. The storm sheared the roof and walls off the building, mangling metal beams and leaving battered cars in the parking lot.

“A firefighter came to check on us and he said, ‘You’re very lucky,’” Parra said. “The best way to describe this is the wind tried to rip us out of the bathrooms.”

Multiple people were transported to hospitals by ambulance and helicopter in Denton County, also north of Dallas.

A series of deadly storms

The destruction continued a grim month of deadly severe weather in the nation’s midsection.

Tornadoes in Iowa last week left at least five people dead and dozens injured. The deadly twisters have spawned during a historically bad season for tornadoes, at a time when climate change contributes to the severity of storms around the world. April had the second-highest number of tornadoes on record in the country.

Meteorologists and authorities issued urgent warnings to seek cover as the storms marched across the region late Saturday and into Sunday. “If you are in the path of this storm take cover now!” the National Weather Service office in Norman, Oklahoma, posted on X.

Harold Brooks, a senior scientist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, said a persistent pattern of warm, moist air is to blame for the string of tornadoes over the past two months.

Homes destroyed, roads blocked

Residents awoke Sunday to overturned cars and collapsed garages. Some residents could be seen pacing and assessing the damage. Nearby, neighbors sat on the foundation of a wrecked home.

In Valley View, near the truck stop, the storms ripped the roofs off homes and blew out windows. Clothing, insulation, bits of plastic and other pieces of debris were wrapped around miles of barbed wire fence line surrounding grazing land in the rural area.

Kevin Dorantes, 20, was in nearby Carrollton when he learned the tornado was bearing down on the Valley View neighborhood where he lived with his father and brother. He called the two of them and told them to take cover in the windowless bathroom, where they rode out the storm and survived unharmed.

As Dorantes wandered through the neighborhood of downed power lines and devastated houses, he came upon a family whose home was reduced to a pile of splintered rubble. A father and son were trapped under debris and friends and neighbors raced to get them out, Dorantes said.

They were conscious but severely injured,” Dorantes said.

Widespread power outages

The severe weather knocked out power for tens of thousands of homes and businesses in the path of the storms.

On Monday, more than 187,000 customers were without power in Kentucky, according to the tracking website poweroutage.us. Some 84,000 customers were without power in Alabama; 74,000, West Virginia; 70,000, Missouri; and 63,000, Arkansas.

Inaccessible roads and downed power lines in Oklahoma also led officials in the town of Claremore, near Tulsa, to announce on social media that the city was “shut down” due to the damage.

Most severe weather in forcast

The system causing the latest severe weather was expected to move east over the rest of the holiday weekend.

The Indianapolis 500 started four hours late after a strong storm pushed into the area, forcing Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials to evacuate about 125,000 race fans.

More severe storms were predicted in Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee.

The risk of severe weather moves into North Carolina and Virginia on Monday, forecasters said.

United States volcano update; Magma is on the move, Uplift detected at Mt. Spurr near Anchorage, Alaska

May 24, 2024

In Alaska, a likely intrusion of magma was detected beneath the closest volcano to the city of Anchorage. This detection occurred at the famous Mount Spurr, which has been producing an elevated level of earthquakes during the last month.

Alongside these earthquakes, ground deformation was detected, meaning that this volcano which hasn’t erupted since 1992 it now producing its highest level of unrest in nearly two decades.

So, does this mean that it is now only a matter of time before the highly explosive Mount Spurr erupts, potentially once again dumping ash on Anchorage? How severe is its current unrest?

From AVO:

Summary of Current Activity

The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) has detected a small increase in volcano seismic activity at Mount Spurr, which may indicate an intrusion of new magma deep beneath the volcano.

An extended recent outage of the local seismic network from February to April 2024 limits precise determination of the onset of this activity, but elevated seismicity has been seen since the network returned on April 3.

Since then, AVO has located an average of four earthquakes per day, with a peak of 33 recorded on April 26. These have typically been smaller than magnitude 1.0, and range in depth from near the summit of the volcano to as much as 18 miles (30 km) below sea level. This activity represents an increase in earthquake rate and occurrence of deeper (>12.4 miles or 20 km) low frequency earthquakes compared to recent years. These low frequency earthquakes are likely related to the migration of fluids.

Minor uplift of the ground surface at the volcano of ~0.4 inches (~1 cm) has also been observed in local GPS data since November 2023, which is a deviation from the long-term trend and may be related to the seismicity.

No significant changes to the ice and snow cover or gas and steam emissions have been observed in association with these geophysical observations. In clear viewing conditions, minor steaming is commonly visible from fumaroles in the summit crater region.

Prognosis and Hazards

The activity that we have observed at Mount Spurr over the past six weeks is consistent with the intrusion of magma deep beneath the volcano. Such an intrusion can cause subtle inflation or swelling of the volcano and generate earthquakes through the release magmatic gasses.

While these observations suggest that increased activity may be occurring deep beneath Mount Spurr, there is no indication that an eruption may occur soon, if at all. Intrusions of new magma under volcanoes do not always result in volcanic eruptions and activity may decline without an eruption occurring, such as during the previous intrusion under Mount Spurr that occurred in 2004.

Beware of the troubles of the world, there is war going on right now, are you even aware of that, most are not, they walk as if peace is going on and yet the enemy is rising up in many areas, deceiving many and leading many astray.  And they’re preparing for war without brains, for they have nobody to lead them anymore, so be in prayer, be in prayer.

Blinken lobbying for strikes on Russia

May 24, 2024

Via RT

The top US diplomat wants Ukraine to be given permission to use American weapons beyond its borders

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is pushing the administration of President Joe Biden to allow Ukraine to attack targets deep inside Russia with American weapons, the New York Times reported on Thursday, referring to unnamed US officials.

The ban, according to the White House, was imposed out of concern that if US arms were used inside what Washington acknowledges as Russian territory it would trigger an escalation and potentially World War III. Blinken has been advocating for scrapping the restriction after making a “sobering” visit to Kiev earlier this month, the newspaper said, citing insider sources.

Ukrainian officials have claimed that being unable to target Russian forces across the border with American weapons led to the failure of its troops to prevent the recent Russian advances in Kharkov Region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the offensive is a response to months of Ukrainian artillery and drone attacks in Russia’s Belgorod Region and that a buffer zone is required to deprive Kiev of the capability to make such strikes. The Times said that Ukrainian weapons “don’t pack the power and speed of the American weapons.”

Kiev has launched a lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill to pressure the White House over the issue and has some allies among lawmakers. A group of representatives signed a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on Monday calling for the Ukrainian request to be granted.

During a hearing in Congress on Tuesday, Senator Michael McCaul displayed a map showing the strike range of ATACMS missiles a weapon the US has donated to Ukraine – if Kiev were allowed to use them inside Russia. He called the outlined territory a “sanctuary zone” for Russian troops and accused the Biden administration of tying the hands of the Ukrainians behind their backs.

Ukraine’s Vladimir Zelensky has urged increased NATO involvement in the conflict and has argued that the West should not fear Russia’s reaction. Moscow believes that Zelensky’s goal is to trigger an escalation to maintain his position.

Russia is currently conducting a military drill to test its capability to use non-strategic nuclear weapons, which Putin ordered in response to hostile rhetoric by Western officials. One such remark identified by Moscow came from British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, who said earlier this month that Kiev “has the right” to use weapons donated by his nation to attack targets inside Russia.

Microsoft Unveils Creepy AI-Powered Windows that Tracks Everything You Do

By Lucas Nolan21 May 2024

Microsoft has announced a new line of AI-enhanced Windows PCs, aiming to revolutionize the way users interact with their devices by integrating the Copilot AI assistant into the Windows operating system. The creepy system will take constant screenshots of your activity to track your every move.

Fortune reports that at an event held at the company’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella introduced the new class of AI-imbued personal computers, emphasizing their potential to anticipate users’ needs and intentions. “We’re entering this new era where computers not only understand us, but can actually anticipate what we want and our intent,” Nadella stated.

The new AI-powered features include Windows Recall, which provides the Copilot assistant with a “photographic memory” of a user’s virtual activity. Microsoft claims that its privacy settings will be protected by allowing them to filter out unwanted tracking and keeping the tracking data on the device itself.

The announcement comes amidst heightened competition from rival tech giants, such as Google and OpenAI, who have recently unveiled their own generative AI technologies. Google introduced a revamped search engine that incorporates AI-generated summaries and showcased its in-development AI assistant, Astra, which can interact with users based on visual inputs from a smartphone camera. Meanwhile, OpenAI launched a new version of its ChatGPT chatbot, demonstrating an AI voice assistant capable of engaging in natural conversations and even attempting to assess a person’s emotions.

Microsoft’s new AI-enhanced Windows PCs, set to launch on June 18, will be available on devices manufactured by partners such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Samsung, as well as on Microsoft’s own Surface line. However, these cutting-edge features will be reserved for premium models starting at $999.

Biden dishonors all Russians by insinuations against Putin — Russian Ambassador

"Such behavior is unacceptable for any responsible politician," Anatoly Antonov said

WASHINGTON, May 26. /TASS/. US President Joe Biden insults all the Russian people by his invectives against Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Russian Ambassador in Washington Anatoly Antonov said.

"I believe such behavior is unacceptable for any responsible politician, especially the leader of the nation. Verbal rudeness and attempts to raise self-esteem on account of the image of our President reflect anger of Washington because Russia, using the US wordings, is challenging the ‘rule-based world order’," Antonov said, cited by the press service of the Russian mission. On Saturday, US President Joe Biden again used offensive speech against the Russian leader.

"It’s time for the local establishment to stand the fact that we will continue pursuing the independent and sovereign policy based on national interests," the Russian diplomat stressed. Biden "insults the entire Russian nation firmly lining up behind the head of state" by making insinuations against Putin, Antonov added.

War World III Drums Beating As The Biden Regime To Allow Ukraine To Use U.S. Weapons Inside Of Russia, Knowing From Previous Warnings Putin Will Retaliate Against America Directly

By Susan Duclos - All News Pipeline May 26, 2024

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. - Matthew 24:6-8 (KVJ)

It seems as if war and rumors of war are everywhere since Joe Biden and his merry band of warmongers took office, and as we have previously asserted, it all comes down to other nations seeing America as weak, as well and noting that our so-called "President" is a weak, fragile, stumbling and bumbling mess.

I say s0-called president because anyone that has watching Biden speak, walk like toddler with a full diaper and wander around aimlessly until someone shows him where to go, understands that this man, is not who is actually making the decisions in the White House nor giving the orders.

While many Americans, and other nations' leaders saw Biden as old and frail and not altogether "there," our weakness as a nation became apparent to all when the Biden regime botched the Afghanistan withdrawal, resulting in the death of 13 U.S. military members, countless in-country allies left behind, along with billions of dollars worth of equipment and weaponry, which the terrorist group the Taliban immediately grabbed along with Afghanistan itself.

Since then we have witnessed war between Russia and Ukraine, Hamas attack Israel, then Israel declaring war, and now China making in-your-face moves towards taking over Taiwan.

Now we see reports that the Biden regime is discussing allowing U.S. weaponry to be fired by Ukraine into Russia, even after Russian President Vladimir Putin made it clear to the Brits after they did the same, that he would strike British targets "anywhere" if UK weapons are launched into Russia by Ukraine.

Via Steve Quayle's website just today, we are now seeing reports about NATO preparing for war with Russia.

What is happening today in Brussels and Washington… looks like warming up for a possible direct military conflict. We can safely call it the preparation of Europe’s entry into the war,” Orban said, adding that there are working groups within NATO that are assessing the best ways for the bloc to further boost its participation in the conflict.

He warned that the end result of these actions could be a direct conflict between the EU, NATO, and Russia – a “grim prospect,” as the conflict would involve nuclear powers.

With the alliance between Russia and China, we take one on, we automatically are fighting both, and between the two, they have more nuclear weapons that the U.S. and UK, combined.

The world is a powder keg right now and pudding-pop-Biden, or whoever is controlling him, is throwing matches at it willy-nilly until it blows.

AMERICA PREPARES FOR WAR....

With Donald Trump ahead in polling heading into the November 2024 presidential election, the Biden regime appears to be limited in the amount of time they have to drag America into a full-blown, boots on the ground World War. Whether said war would be meant to delay the election (which is doubtful, but I am mentioning it because I wouldn't put much past liberals these days), or to leave Trump stuck with a world war if he wins, or some other random reason, I am not sure, but looking at what has happened nationally, and internationally, in the three-plus years the Biden regime has been in control, it is as if they are trying their hardest to make WWIII happen.

I have often said that if we want timely news, look to the foreign news because they will tell us what the national media aka the MSM won't until they can figure out how to "spin" it to benefit the Biden regime and Democrats, so I spend quite a bit of time on foreign news websites.

Today, over at Daily Mail, we see "America is actively preparing for war with China over growing fears of Taiwan invasion." As highlighted above, going to war with China means going to war with Russia, since they are close allies, hostile to America.

The developments are a disturbing glimpse into the perspective of US military leaders as the hostile nation continues to threaten to invade Taiwan. Any direct conflict between the US and China could easily spiral into World War Three, with both nations in possession of nuclear weapons that could destroy the planet.

Spin on that, MSM.

If the Biden regime is actively readying for a boots on the ground war, once again to protect Taiwan, a nation that holds no national security interests for the U.S., much like we are doing in Ukraine, it will put a bullseye on multiple U.S. states to be hit, likely by nuclear weapons.

In December 2022, Business Insider published a map of the most likely places within the U.S. to be hit should Russia decide to bring the war onto American soil, according an expert they spoke with.

Minuteman III ICBM bases would be the highest priority (red) , Subs/planes (blue), Command/control targets (green), Nuclear storage depots (purple). etc etc..

Remember: in March 2024, Stefan Stanford reported that Russia was executing 'bold maneuvers' in the Atlantic Ocean, deploying no less than 11 nuclear subs in the Atlantic as the world moves closer and closer to nuclear annihilation.

They are ready to hit the U.S., just waiting for the right provocation.

BOTTOM LINE.....

If Biden or whoever is really calling the shots, does allow Ukraine to use U.S. weapons inside of Russia, there will be no coming back from that.

Since America itself is already preparing for war, whether with China when they take Taiwan, or with Russia by ignoring their warnings about allowing U.S. weapons to be used inside Russia, "we the people" better be fully prepared as well.

Tucker Carlson and Erik Prince Expose the Secret Life of Cell Phones

Posted on May 26, 2024 by Constitutional Nobody

By Alexandra Bruce  Forbidden Knowledge TV

TUCKER CARLSON: Your cell phone isn’t just watching and listening to you. It’s doing a lot more than that. And we’re about to break down the secrets they hope you never learn.

ERIK PRINCE: Well, we’ve been doing a study following our device, a Google mobile services phone, any Android running Google mobile services, (which is all of them or an iPhone). And about 3am we’re seeing a spike of data leaving the phone by 50 megabytes. That is basically that phone dialing home to the mothership exporting all of your goings on while your pillow talk is going to… pillow talk, whatever.

ALEX JONES: Eric Prince recently sat down with Tucker Carlson and exposed the fact that his security slash military company did an internal study of iPhones, Androids, and found that all of them in the middle of the night were transmitting large packets of information back to their home companies, back to the mothership.

Now, decades ago, I showed you industry documents had whistleblowers on that. Indeed, cell phones, even when they’re off are recording the audio and transferring it over to a text document to be sent back to the telecommunication companies and big tech.

But it’s not just the cell phone itself that’s doing this. It’s being sent back through the apps and Prince singles out Mark Zuckerberg, who’s probably the worst offender out there, but this is going on across the board. Look at Amazon and the Alexa that for more than a decade, people have brought into their homes, but it’s also your automobiles.

And now by law, all automobiles sold in the United States have tracker systems in them that can also trigger a kill switch in your car, and are also recording audio. And in many cases, recording video. Now Prince hits the key here and so does Carlson.

ussanews.com

They make the point that this is a monopoly, a monopoly of a handful of big tech companies that can use this information to take control of markets and dominate and vertically integrate the economy, shutting down all of their competition. And that’s just on the economic side.

Think of the political power that is there to be able to gauge and manipulate the minds of the population, because each man, woman and child in the Western world, who’s around these quote smart devices that are spying on us is having giant profiles built on us. And that data is being sold. Just a few weeks ago, big banks in the United States, like Chase announced, Hey, we’re selling our customers purchasing history to other companies.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, This is a whole technological breakaway civilization that is operating completely illegally and interfaced with private intelligence agencies to manipulate, censor and steal elections.

We’ve got to educate Congress about this. We’ve got to educate the state attorney generals about this. We’ve got to educate the military and the public about this, because this is a security threat to all of our civilization. Now in the past, this data was crunched by computers and was used in algorithms.

But now with AI that can do trillions of calculations a second, they are able to do even more with this and take full control of civilization.

Just last week when China did a blockade of Taiwan and flew loaded planes with bombs over them in a simulated attack, what did Taiwan threaten to do? The main chip maker in the world, they came out and announced, Hey, for decades, we’ve been putting kill switches in all the microchips that we sold to China and others. And if you keep messing with us, we’ll kill the microchips in most of your military equipment and your dams and your highways.

Think of what the NSA or the communist Chinese or the Taiwanese or the Russians or hacker groups can do with this? This doesn’t give us redundancy. This doesn’t give us security. This gives us a world that’s like Swiss cheese for hackers and criminal groups and governments and corporations to do whatever they want!

When I would tell people that your phones are listening to you decades ago, people laughed at me, even though I had the documents. Then they roll out all these home assistants and people say, Oh, so what? I trust them.

ussanews.com

And then, we now learn that the police have been listening to people over these systems. Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to end up bringing down civilization. We have to educate the public and we have to bring in controls now.

And we have to realize that technology itself is not evil, but it has all been Trojan-horsed by corrupt governments and corporations to make it evil. And the infrastructure that we live in today is the opposite of what Google said in their founding documents 25 years ago, “Don’t be Evil”. Because from day one they had been evil and were set up by In-Q-Tel and the CIA.

And more documents just came out two days ago that indeed the CIA has been in a process of taking over all the social media and targeting the American people.

We have rogue corporations and governments teamed up, playing God, waging war on the economy, cutting off energy, cutting off fertilizer, cutting off food to create a global meltdown so they can offer their solution. The public rollout of this cashless society, social credit score enforced, not by drones in the sky or army tanks on the ground, but by the devices that run and control our lives.

Here’s Erik Prince with the great Tucker Carlson. I hope you share this video and I hope you educate yourself and others around you because this is the most important thing happening in our world today. And when they roll out the next viral scare, whether it’s bird flu or something else, the UN treaty openly states, they’re going to lock us in our houses and turn off our cars and turn off our phones.

If we don’t submit, Australia is the test case and it’s happening now. If you want to live like the communist Chinese slaves in China, you’re about to be living like them unless we stand up as a population and a people and go into these big tech companies and break up these trusts and outlaw this crap now! Bill Gates had Microsoft broken up 20 something years ago for simply running a software monopoly.

This is a trillion times worse. I’m Alex Jones. This is the info war.

Please follow me in X. Now, here is Eric Prince and the great Tucker Carlson. (Cut to podcast).

ERIK PRINCE: I’ve had so many people I’ve talked to about, they said, I was talking to my wife about needing a new mattress in our bedroom. The next day they’re getting advertising for mattresses, which means the camera or the phone was listening to them in their bedroom with all the follow on conclusions to be drawn from that.

TUCKER CARLSON: Yeah. Given what happens in healthy bedrooms, that’s, I mean, what happens to those recordings?

ERIK PRINCE: Well, we’ve been doing a study following our device, a Google mobile services phone, any Android running Google mobile services, which is all of them or an iPhone and about 3am we’re seeing a spike of data leaving the phone, but 50 megabytes. That is basically that phone dialing home to the mothership, exporting all of your goings on.

TUCKER CARLSON: All your pillow talk is going to them..

ERIK PRINCE: Pillow talk, whatever. So Zuckerberg paid $20 billion for WhatsApp. Why? Because every message, call, video, picture, voice note, everything that goes through there, they say, well, it’s end to end encrypted. Yeah, it’s end to end until it passes through their server where it’s sliced and diced and analyzed and used to push used to sell advertising to that customer.

If you’re not paying for something, you’re not the customer, you are the product.

So if you want to get, well, I think people, people right now are used to Mark Zuckerberg listening from their nightstand every night because that’s effectively what, what’s your phone.

TUCKER CARLSON: So why isn’t he like the creepiest person in world history if he’s listening to what’s going on in your bedroom?

ERIK PRINCE: Because they’re able as big tech to shape that message. That’s, that’s the frightening thing about the power of big tech and their ability to, to influence what you watch, what you think about candidates.

If you search something, how they, how they score those rankings, it’s a, it is shocking. We have an antitrust problem here, in America, vastly worse than in the early 19 eight, late 1800s, early 1900s with oil and railways and steel and all the rest.

TUCKER CARLSON: This is not the Sugar Trust. This is more important.

ERIK PRINCE: Yeah, this is literally how we communicate, interact with other human beings in our lives; how we gather and share information about the realities of life of food, of medicine, of vaccines, of healthcare issues of, of truth. And so it’s an – especially in an era of AI – it’s scary stuff. The average kid in America by the time they reach the age of 13 has had 72 million data points collected on them by Big Tech.

So, so it’s almost like a, that of that much collection allows digital grooming by Big Tech to share and to shape your preferences, how you interact, et cetera.

TUCKER CARLSON: Including your sexual preferences. I mean, if you’re being honest here, yeah, exactly. Considering that young people are introduced to sexuality through pornography.

ERIK PRINCE: Yep. Yeah.

TUCKER CARLSON: Um, given that there’s no privacy, it’s probably pretty dumb to watch porn.

###

ALEX JONES: Again, this has been going on for decades. It’s getting worse by the day.

It’s all completely illegal. Congress must act. The governors must act. The legislatures must act. The Senate attorney generals must act now because this is a big tech private intelligence agency take over the world. We’ll be reporting more on this edX at real Alex Jones. Please follow me there.

The US Govt Has Set Up US Military Bases To Be Sitting Ducks For Terror By Disarming Service Members And Transforming Them From War Fighters Into 'Social Justice Warriors'

By Mike McDaniel and All News Pipeline May 26, 2024

Among the realities of military life on Continental United States (CONUS) military installations is the disarmament of military members. The only service members allowed to carry arms are those whose Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) requires it. For the most part, that means only military police officers can carry arms, and even those troops are restricted as to time and place. They pick up their arms and ammunition just before going on duty, and return them to the armory immediately after going off duty.

It's one of the ironies of military life that those trusted with military grade weapons to protect American liberty are not allowed to carry the common handguns civilians take for granted. They are, on our military installations, less safe than civilians shopping at WalMart. Military dependents are likewise prohibited from carrying arms on base and are equally vulnerable.

Attacks on military installations such as the Ft. Hood attack on November 5, 2009 where a Muslim Army psychiatrist—there’s irony—killed 13, and the Washington Navy Yard attack of Sept. 16, 2013, where 12 were killed and more were injured have drawn attention to the vulnerability of our service members. We’re currently seeing multiple attempts every week.

During Donald Trump’s presidency there was some talk of significantly expanding the numbers of armed service members, but little or nothing came of it. Even then, the Obama fundamental transformation of our military from war fighters to social justice warriors had done enormous damage, and the possibility of protecting our service members under the Biden Administration is nonexistent.

(ANP Emergency!: PLEASE donate to ANP! Due to the globalists war upon truth and the independent media, our monthly revenue has been cut by more than 80% so we need your help more now than ever before. Anything at all ANP readers can do to help us is hugely appreciated.)

Security at US installations, many of which are huge, is lacking. Ft. Bragg is 254.6 square miles. Ft. Campbell is 164 square miles and Ft. Hood is 335 square miles. Most of our installations are protected primarily by chain link fencing, with several entry points manned by troops armed primarily with handguns. With few exceptions, the troops manning such entry points are the lowest ranking, least experienced military police officers. Few installations have rapid response forces equipped with heavier armament and armored vehicles.

Considering even our feckless FBI Director has been repeatedly warning of an unprecedented danger of terrorist attacks, this state of affairs is unconscionable. The government is not, however, mentioning that heightened threat of attacks is due to our wide-open borders.

On May 3, 2024, a hard to ignore attempt to breach the Quantico Marine Corps Base reminded us yet again of the danger.Hard to ignore” for rational people, but the Administration is doing its best to ignore it, and is withholding information.

Two Jordanians who may have been doing a “dry run for Al Qaeda or ISIS” have been arrested after allegedly trying to scam and then ram their way onto a US marine base in Virginia with a truck.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to The Post two Jordanian nationals are now in custody after being stopped at the front gate of Quantico Marine Corps Base, 35 miles southwest of Washington DC.

“On May 3, 2024, Marine Corps Base Quantico’s Criminal Investigations Division arrested two Jordanian noncitizens for trespassing,” ICE Washington spokesperson James Covington said.

Apparently the two potential terrorists drove a “box truck” to the front gate and told sentries they were subcontracting with Amazon and needed to make a delivery. The two ignored directions and tried to drive onto the base but were stopped by an “area denial” system, which is likely a retractable vehicle barrier. Quantico Marine brass didn’t widely notify even their own command for several weeks.

This is all we know about the two:

Fox News reports that one of the men had crossed the border illegally, yet was allowed to stay.

The other reportedly overstayed his visa.

It’s yet more proof of the national security dangers of President Biden’s wave-them-in border policies.

Indeed, sources told a local news outlet that one was on the terror watchlist.

Was this a dry run for a car bombing attack? Obviously it was an intelligence gathering mission, but to what end and for which terrorist group(s)? Thus far, all the Biden Terrorist Welcoming Administration has suggested is both will be deported.

Deported?! Two illegals, almost certainly Muslims from a nation not particularly fond of America, try to force their way onto a Marine base, and the government isn’t releasing any additional information and is sending them back to their handlers?

Despite increasing warnings about imminent terrorist attacks, the Biden Administration obviously doesn’t consider informing the public politically smart. Trying to preserve and protect Hamas doesn’t fit well with effectively dealing with terrorist dry runs on CONUS military installations.

Not only is Biden negotiating for terrorists, he’s making more than clear Muslim votes are far more important than the lives of our CONUS troops and dependents. What a surprise.

The US Submarine Force is Sunk

May 25, 2024 Guest Post by Bill Buppert

Guest Post by Bill Buppert

When you look at the larger disaster of American arms and readiness, all the services are in the hazard of being mission ineffective. The US Navy surface fleet has been an unmitigated building debacle with the Little Crappy Ships, Zumwalt class and the USS Ford carrier not performing up to speed for any of the anticipated mission sets assigned to these failed programs.

Ive often thought that the sole discriminator for the US military apart from the aging and decrepit USAF nuclear land-based missile forces and bomber organizations that sets the US apart is the submarine force and now the more I discover about the state of contemporary nuclear submarine construction, maintenance, readiness and improvements, the less convinced I am of the efficacy of the US submarine forces.

Jerry Hendrix wrote a disturbing essay on the state of the force and predictably, it is a hot mess.

His indictment is well-researched, terribly disconcerting and a dim prognostication for future strength.

of the submarine force already in commission, sixteen of those forty-nine boatsor nearly a third of the Navy’s premier offensive force—are in dry-docks or tied to piers, lacking required dive certifications. These submarines cannot get underway due to a three-year maintenance backlog in the U.S. Navy.

The bottom line is that the American submarine force, the “point of the spear” of American power, upon which so many military plans depend, is unprepared to meet the current threat environment, and there are no quick fixes. It has taken decades—and a sequence of bad assump­tions and poor decisions—to fall into the current state of unpreparedness, and it will take years, as well as significant investments in both new ship construction and submarine repair capacity, to recover.

Thanks to CDR Salamander for introducing me to the splendid Hendrix essay.

He opines:

Back to the effects of bad assumptions. The issue really isn’t the bad assumptions. In all human institutions, you have imperfections and bad assumptions that don’t survive for long in the wild. The key is how fast you can notice the error, and then take corrective action. If you quickly execute bad assumptions, but then in an accretion-encumbered, happy-talk laden, and bureaucratically inept manner slow-roll the correction, well, you find yourself here.

I am less optimistic and think we have reached the point of no return; there is no recovery from this.

US Weapons Accuracy Drops To 10% In Ukraine Due To Jamming

by Tyler Durden Saturday, May 25, 2024 - 10:40 PM

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk.com,

Many high-tech US weapons systems in Ukraine are now useless due to jamming signals by Russia.

Useless Weapons

Please consider Russian Jamming Leaves Some High-Tech U.S. Weapons Ineffective in Ukraine

Russia’s jamming of the guidance systems of modern Western weapons, including Excalibur GPS-guided artillery shells and the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, or HIMARS, which can fire some U.S.-made rockets with a range of up to 50 miles, has eroded Ukraine’s ability to defend its territory and has left officials in Kyiv urgently seeking help from the Pentagon to obtain upgrades from arms manufacturers.

The success rate for the U.S.-designed Excalibur shells, for example, fell sharply over a period of months — to less than 10 percent hitting their targets — before Ukraine’s military abandoned them last year, according to the confidential Ukrainian assessments.

Six months ago, after Ukrainians reported the problem, Washington simply stopped providing Excalibur shells because of the high failure rate, the Ukrainian officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive security matter. In other cases, such as aircraft-dropped bombs called JDAMs, the manufacturer provided a patch and Ukraine continues to use them.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine created a modern testing ground for Western arms that had never been used against a foe with Moscow’s ability to jam GPS navigation.

But even before the United States ceased deliveries, Ukrainian artillerymen had largely stopped using Excalibur, the assessments said, because the shells are harder to use compared with standard howitzer rounds, requiring time-consuming special calculations and programming. Now they are shunned altogether, military personnel in the field said.

Dense web of jamming

A web of Russian electronic warfare systems and air defenses menace Ukrainian pilots, the documents said, adding that some Russian jammers also scramble the navigation system of planes. The Russian defense is so dense, the assessment found, that there are “no open windows for the Ukrainian pilots where they feel that they are not at gunpoint.”

HIMARS launchers were celebrated during the first year of Russia’s invasion for their success in striking ammunition depots and command points behind enemy lines.

But by the second year, “everything ended: the Russians deployed electronic warfare, disabled satellite signals, and HIMARS became completely ineffective,” a second senior Ukrainian military official said. “This ineffectiveness led to the point where a very expensive shell was used” increasingly to strike lower-priority targets.

Another US Precision-Guided weapon Fails

Defense One reports Another US Precision-Guided Weapon Falls Prey to Russian Electronic Warfare

A new ground-launched version of an air-to-ground weapon developed for Ukraine on a rapid timeline failed to hit targets in part because of Russian electro-magnetic warfare, Bill LaPlante, the Pentagon’s acquisition chief, said at an event held by think tank CSIS.

LaPlante suggested that Ukraine may no longer be interested in the weapon. “When you send something to people in the fight of their lives that just doesn’t work, they’ll try it three times and they’ll just throw it aside,” said LaPlante.

The weapon LaPlante is referring to is very likely the Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) based on his description, according to Bryan Clark, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute.

A Boeing spokesperson did not confirm that LaPlante was referring to GLSDB, but said the company is “working closely with the [Defense Department] on spiral capability improvements to the ground-launch SDB system.” Spiral capability improvements refers to an iterative software development process.

The GLDSB boasts a range of 90 miles—double the range of the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMRLS) missiles Ukraine previously used to wreak havoc on Russia’s logistic centers. Funding for the weapon was approved in February 2023, and Ukraine was reportedly using the weapon by February 2024.

GPS spoofers work by sending false location data to GPS navigation devices. Because GPS signals are weak, a stronger, false signal can be sent to override the correct inputs. Russia has used GPS spoofing in Ukraine since at least 2018. But advancements in technology mean spoofers can be created cheaply with just a software-defined radio and open-source software.

The weapons the spoofers are working against, meanwhile, are anything but cheap. A GMLRS missile costs around $160,000, while an Excalibur round can cost as much as $100,000. The GLDSB costs around $40,000.

Tactical Nuclear Weapons

Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson on Sullivan’s words about Russia’s plans to use nuclear weapons: “His statement sounds like he had a meeting with Zelensky, where he was given some of Zelensky’s cocaine. Russia will not use nuclear weapons unless there is a real threat. If the US deploys F-16s in Poland, then Russia will destroy them “with conventional weapons, because they do pose a nuclear threat. The Taurus missiles are the same situation. If they are deployed, then you know – Russia has admitted that they can be used to launch a nuclear strike.”

What’s the Real Background Story Behind Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine?

On February 24, 2022 I asked, and answered the question What’s the Real Background Story Behind Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine?

What Happened in Ukraine?

The mess today in Ukraine has its roots in the 2014 when democratically elected Ukrainian President Yanukovych was toppled in a US-backed coup.

Q: Why did the US want to get rid of Yanukovych?

A: Because he was against Ukraine joining NATO.

The current comedian president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, repeated two days ago his desire to join NATO.

I use the term comedian because he literally is a comedian who ran for office and won.

McCain dined with Svoboda Party leader Oleg Tyagnibok. The Svoboda Party is a group of neo-Nazis.

The citizens of Ukraine were used as pawns in yet another US mission that backfired.

Well who cares about Neo-Nazis as long as they want Ukraine in NATO.

And that’s the rest of the story US media will not discuss.

This no way absolves Putin, but US meddling backfires again, and again, and again.

Sometimes the Best Thing to Do Is Nothing At All

Please consider Sometimes the Best Thing to Do Is Nothing At All

After pointing out how much US and EU sanctions have backfired, someone asked me what I would do.

I responded, why do I have to do anything?

The urge to do something should not be so intense that it overpowers analysis as to whether any actions can possibly work.

President Biden on Putin

On March 26, President Biden proclaimed “For God’s Sake, this Man Cannot Remain in Power”

The Wall Street Journal and perpetual warmongers agreed. But Biden’s staff quickly backtracked on his controversial statement.

On March 29 I pointed out all the loopholes in sanctions on Russia, For discussion, please see Misguided Souls Still Do Not Understand This Simple Truth: Sanctions Don’t Work

I wrote that on April 8, 2022.

Also in 2022, I said the war would end in a negotiated settlement and nobody would win.

What did I get wrong?

It’s Time for a New Strategy

On March 16, I wrote Ukraine Won’t Win the War, It’s Time for a New Strategy

The sad thing is US meddling precipitated this whole sorry affair.

It’s time for a new strategy and a goal: Negotiated settlement.

If we supply Ukraine with anything, we should only do so if it aids that goal. For now, we still have no goals.

What’s the Goal?

On November 7, 2023, I asked If the US Has a Goal in Ukraine or Israel, What the Hell Is It?

We still don’t have a clearly defined goal or a clearly defined amount of money we are willing to spend.

Any Questions?

I have one:

Given US meddling in Ukraine precipitated this war, are we obliged to start a nuclear war to stop it, or is the lesson to just stop meddling?

Japan tells residents to 'take cover' as North Korea launches rocket 'carrying spy satellite' off coast

Japanese Prime Minister’s Office issued a missile alert for Okinawa

North Korea sent its first military reconnaissance satellite into orbit in November

By Claudia Aoraha For Dailymail.Com

Published: 11:32 EDT, 27 May 2024 | Updated: 13:41 EDT, 27 May 2024

Japan issued an alert telling its residents to take cover after North Korea launched a rocket allegedly carrying its second military spy satellite on Monday night.

The rocket launch came just hours after the country's announcement of a plan to put a satellite into orbit drew strong rebukes from its neighbors.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said it detected a launch trajectory believed to be a spy satellite fired from the North's main space center at 10:44pm on Monday.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that a North Korean rocket was launched in a southern direction off the Korean Peninsula's west coast.

It said four minutes after the launch, many fragments were spotted in the waters. It said South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities were analyzing whether the launch was successful.

Earlier Monday, North Korea had notified Japan's coast guard about its plans to launch 'a satellite rocket' during a launch window from Monday through June 3.

Japanese Prime Minister’s Office lifted a missile alert issued for the island of Okinawa following North Korea’s launch, saying that the missile was believed not to be headed for its region.

North Korea sent its first military reconnaissance satellite into orbit in November last year as part of efforts to build a space-based surveillance network to cope with what it calls increasing U.S.-led military threats.

Kim Jong-Un later told a ruling party meeting that the country would launch three additional military spy satellites in 2024.

The November launch followed two failed liftoffs.

In the first attempt, the North Korean rocket carrying the satellite crashed into the ocean soon after liftoff. North Korean authorities said the rocket lost thrust after the separation of its first and second stages.

After the second attempt, North Korea said there was an error in the emergency blasting system during the third-stage flight.

The U.N. bans North Korea from conducting any satellite launches, viewing them as covers for testing long-range missile technology. North Korea has steadfastly maintained it has the right to launch satellites and test missiles.

Kim has said spy satellites will allow his military to better monitor U.S. and South Korean military activities and enhance the threat posed by its nuclear-capable missiles. 

North Korea provides Japan with its launch information because Japan’s coast guard coordinates and distributes maritime safety information in East Asia.

Chicago mom left waiting hours for help after 911 call for home invasion: ‘We have no units to send you’

By Social Links for Katherine Donlevy

Published May 18, 2024, 10:04 p.m. ET

A Chicago mom who called 911 during a terrifying break-in was left on her own for hours — with dispatchers telling her to call her local representative to demand more police funding.

Michelle called the emergency hotline six times after coming face-to-face with two masked bandits, only for the strained supervisor to tell her the city’s severe budget cuts had left them with a bare-bones staff.

“A gentleman got on and said sorry to say we have no units to send you … then there was an awkward pause,” Michelle told NBC Chicago Wednesday, declining to share her name or face while her would-be robbers are still on the loose.

He also recommended I call my alderman and I said why, and he said encourage him to hire more police. The dispatcher also asked me if I would consider defending myself … if I had a weapon or considered getting one.”

According to Michelle, the two strangers walked through her open back door around 12:30 p.m. after she let her dog out.

They were even caught on her security camera “moseying” up to her property after climbing over a 6-foot-tall fence, but quickly sprinting away after finding the homeowner inside the house.

“I screamed: ‘I am calling the police’ and they bolted,” Michelle recalled.

Michelle and a neighbor tried chasing after the men before she followed through on her promise.

A dispatcher promised the frightened mother that help was on the way and directed her to wait outside.

But officers didn’t arrive, Michelle said.

After an hour and a half and six phone calls to 911, she finally demanded answers from a dispatch supervisor, who indicated the slow response was due to the city’s lackluster police department funding.

It would be another two and a half hours before cops finally arrived.

“The officers who did show up cared and were apologetic it took so long to get them there,” Michelle said.

I don’t think it is the police department’s fault they are overstaffed and overwhelmed.”

Chicago Police told NBC Chicago that the delay in getting officers to Michelle’s home may have been related to the priority list for routine dispatch calls for 911 — because there was no immediate threat to life, Michelle was left waiting as officers addressed more pressing concerns in the area.

Despite her frustration, Michelle heeded the dispatch supervisor’s advice and called her alderman’s office and is waiting to meet with him in person.

“It is awful that our neighbor experienced this, everyone deserves to feel safe in their home,” 1st Ward Alderman Daniel La Spata said in a statement.

My staff alerted me to the issue as soon as they heard, and I am in contact with 12th District Police leadership. I will continue to support any resources our districts request, and I will continue to work with the City on a proposed satellite location within West Town for the 12th District police.”

Williamsburg 365 News posted on Wednesday footage of a man dismounting from his bicycle and approaching a group of orthodox Jewish children who were playing on the sidewalk.

The assailant appeared to smack one of the children on the face, kicking him to the ground. The man threw another child to the ground before repeatedly kicking him. The children fled, and the man returned to his bicycle.

NYPD investigates

The NYPD said that there was an additional victim not recorded in the video. The police received a criminal complaint that they were investigating, about a bicyclist in the same area approached a man and his son who were also playing on the sidewalk.

"The suspect then pushed the victim to the ground causing a minor laceration [to] his head," said the NYPD. "The suspect fled southbound on Franklin Avenue. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing."

Antisemitic incidents have increased in New York since the October 7 Hamas attacks.

Is “The Big One” Coming? There Have Been More Than 1000 Earthquakes In California And Nevada In The Past 7 Days

May 21, 2024 by Michael

Scientists have warned us that California is way overdue for a major earthquake and that “the Big One” could literally strike at any time. That is why I was so alarmed when the Los Angeles Times reported that “two sets of earthquake swarms” had just hit the state. After seeing that story, I went over to the Southern California Earthquake Data Center to check how many earthquakes have shaken the region during the past week. As I write this article, the total number of earthquakes in California and Nevada in the last 7 days is sitting at a grand total of 1010. To me, whenever that number goes above 1000 we are officially in the danger zone. Hopefully there will not be a very large earthquake in California any time soon, but when there is this much shaking going on we should all be on alert.

The biggest quake that has hit the region this week is one that shook Imperial County very early on Monday…

A magnitude 4.1 earthquake shook California’s Imperial County near the Salton Sea Monday morning.

The quake struck 18 miles south of Salton City and 4 miles southeast of Ocotillo Wells at 5:17 a.m., according the U.S. Geological Survey.

Residents as far away as Chula Vista, Mission Viejo, Highland and Indio reported feeling the quake, the USGS reported.

Prior to that quake, there were two “earthquake swarms” that deeply alarmed scientists.

One of those “earthquake swarms” happened over the weekend and it was centered along the California-Mexico border…

Another earthquake swarm has been rumbling along the California-Mexico border.

More than two dozen quakes greater than magnitude 2.5 have occurred since just after midnight Saturday, with epicenters about 175 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles and 100 miles northeast of San Diego, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

They have occurred largely along farmland between the towns of Brawley and Imperial in Imperial County. The largest quake was a magnitude 3.9 that struck at 4:05 p.m. Saturday, bringing light shaking to the Imperial Valley as well as south of the border and rattling Mexicali.

Prior to that, a different earthquake swarm rattled an area “about 18 miles southeast of Mexicali in Baja California”…

A separate swarm of earthquakes occurred a week ago, about 40 miles southeast of the most recent quake activity. Last week’s swarm occurred about 18 miles southeast of Mexicali in Baja California, with the largest a magnitude 4.2 that was felt as far away as El Centro in California and Yuma, Ariz.

Hopefully all of this recent shaking will turn out to be nothing.

But it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” comes along.

And when it finally arrives, authorities are projecting that it could cause hundreds of billions of dollars in damage…

If the Big One did strike, ‘it would be a matter of a few tens of seconds before the shaking from a San Andreas event that ruptures the segments closest to Los Angeles reach our urban areas,’ Jonathan Stewart with the University of California, Los Angeles told DailyMail.com.

According to the California Earthquake Authority, the natural disaster would cause destruction in a 100-mile radius of the fault line, which starts near Eureka and ends below Palm Springs, killing at least 1,800 people, crumble millions of homes and cause more than $290 billion in damages.

An earthquake of the size that they are talking about could literally take place at any time.

But I am expecting an even larger catastrophe to hit the state eventually.

Personally, I am among those that are anticipating that someday an apocalyptic earthquake will literally alter the geography of the California coastline on a permanent basis.

Speaking of apocalyptic threats, on the other side of the world it appears that an absolutely massive super volcano could be waking up.

On Monday, a magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck the Campi Flegrei super volcano in Italy. This was the largest earthquake to hit that region in 40 years…

A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck Italy’s Campi Flegrei super volcano Monday evening, causing mild damage in the town of Pozzuoli, the epicenter, and as far away as the city of Naples, some 20 kilometers (12 miles) away, according to Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV).

Cracks in walls and falling cornices were reported, Italy’s Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed to CNN.

The 4.4 earthquake at a depth of 3 kilometers is the strongest earthquake to hit the highly seismic area in the past 40 years, according to INGV data. The quake is part of an ongoing “seismic storm” that has seen more than a dozen events over 2.0 magnitude in the past 48 hours.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t just an isolated incident.

According to one expert, the ground in that particular area has been steadily rising at a rate of 2 centimeters per month…

Seismic activity on Campi Flegrei, which is home to at least 360,000 people across seven of the most at-risk inhabited hubs, has intensified in the past two years, with the frequency and strength of the quakes increasing as the caldera, the basin at the top of the volcano, weakens and pressure beneath it builds. This causes the ground to rise and the volcano’s crust to stretch.

“The earth is continuing to rise at a rate of 2cm a month, a higher rate than last year, and unfortunately it seems to be continuing at this rate,” Mauro Di Vito, the director of the Vesuvius Observatory for Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), told reporters. “We expect similar earthquakes … I cannot make predictions but we can expect the swarm to continue.”

Hopefully an eruption is not imminent because almost half a million people live nearby…

The Campi Flegrei, or Phlegraean Fields, is a vast volcanic area covering 150 square kilometers. Despite its last eruption in 1538, its lively magmatic activity classifies it as a supervolcano, posing a threat to nearly half a million residents.

While the community has grown accustomed to frequent but minor seismic activity, the intensity of Monday night’s tremors brought a renewed sense of fear.

The region experienced 450 smaller earthquakes in the past month, but the magnitude and persistence of this event were unprecedented.

All over the world, seismic activity is rising to very alarming levels.

But most people won’t care until a major disaster affects them personally.

Unfortunately, I am entirely convinced that we are entering a time when major natural disasters of absolutely epic proportions will just keep hitting our planet one after another.

JPMorgan and Mastercard on board with paying with your face

Automated fast food restaurant CaliExpress by Flippy, in Pasadena, Calif., opened in January to considerable hype due to its robot burger makers, but the restaurant launched with another, less heralded innovation: the ability to pay for your meal with your face.

CaliExpress uses a payment system from facial ID tech company PopID. To activate it, users register with a selfie. Then they can opt to be recognized and then PopID’s facial verification confirms the transaction.

It’s not the only fast-food chain to employ the technology. In January, Steak ’N Shake, a fast-casual restaurant in the Midwest, started installing facial recognition kiosks in its 300 locations for patron check-in.

The chain says that using PopID takes two to three seconds compared with a check-in with a QR code or mobile app, which can take up to 20 seconds.

Biometric payment options are becoming more common. Amazon introduced pay-by-palm technology in 2020, and while its cashier-less store experiment has faltered, it installed the tech in 500 of its Whole Foods stores last year.

Mastercard, which is working with PopID, launched a pilot for face-based payments in Brazil back in 2022, and it was deemed a success76% of pilot participants said they would recommend the technology to a friend.

Late last year, Mastercard said it was teaming with NEC to bring its Biometric Checkout Program to the Asia-Pacific region.

Our focus on biometrics as a secure way to verify identity, replacing the password with the person, is at the heart of our efforts in this area,” said Dennis Gamiello, executive vice president of identity products and innovation at Mastercard.

He added that based on positive feedback from the pilot and its research, the checkout technology will come to more new markets later this year.

In other countries, most notably China, biometric payment systems are comparatively mature, from visitors to McDonald’s in China being able to use facial recognition technology to pay for their orders, to systems offered by AliPay, which launched biometric payment as far back as 2015 and began testing the technology at KFC locations in China in 2018.

A deal that PopID recently signed with JPMorgan is a sign of things to come in the U.S., said John Miller, PopID CEO, and what he thinks will be a “breakthrough” year for pay-by-face technology.

The consumer case is tied to the growing importance of loyalty programs. Most quick-service restaurants require consumers to provide their loyalty information to earn rewards — which means pulling out a phone, opening an app, finding the link to the loyalty QR code, and then presenting the QR code to the cashier or reader. For payment, consumers are typically choosing between pulling out their wallet, selecting a credit card, and then dipping or tapping the card or pulling out their phone, opening it with Face ID, and then presenting it to the reader.

Miller says PopID simplifies this process by requiring just tapping an on-screen button, and then looking briefly at a camera for both loyalty check-in and payment.

We believe our partnership with JPMorgan is a watershed moment for biometric payments as it represents the first time a leading merchant acquirer has agreed to push biometric payments to its merchant customers,” Miller said. “JPMorgan brings the kind of credibility and assurance that both merchants and consumers need to adopt biometric payments.”

Consumers are getting more comfortable with biometric technology. The majority still prefer fingerprint scans to facial recognition, according to a 2023 survey from PYMENTS, but age is a factor. Gen Z consumers are more open to facial recognition than to fingerprint scans or entering a password.

Juniper Research forecasts over 100% market growth for global biometric payments between 2024 and 2028, and by 2025, $3 trillion in mobile, biometric-secured payments.

To be sure, security concerns and the hacking of biometric data as a consequence of sharing it, will remain important to the evolving usage and conversation.

Sheldon Jacobson, a professor in computer science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, said he sees biometric identification as part of a technology continuum that has evolved from payment with a credit card to smartphones. “The next natural step is to simply use facial recognition,” he said.

Concerns about privacy and facial recognition, he says, are overblown. “We voluntarily give up our privacy all the time,” Jacobson said. “We post on Facebook, we use social media and we are basically giving up our privacy. I tell people constantly that everything about you is already out there.”

Russia to Unilaterally Change Sea Borders with Lithuania and Finland in the Baltic

Hal Turner World May 22, 2024 Hits: 2844

Russian authorities have made a unilateral decision to change the sea borders of Russia with Lithuania and Finland in the Baltic Sea.

This comes from a draft government resolution published on the portal of legal acts of the Russian Federation.

According to the document drafted by the Russian defense ministry, Russia intends to declare part of the water area in the east of the Gulf of Finland, as well as near the cities of Baltiysk and Zelenogradsk in the Kaliningrad region as its internal sea waters.

To do that, geographic coordinates of the points that determine the position of the baselines from which the width of the territorial sea of ​​the Russian Federation is measured, as well as the adjacent zone off the coast and islands will be changed.

At the border with Finland, the Russian government intends to correct the coordinates in the area of ​​the islands of Yahi, Sommers, Holland, Rodsher, Maly Tyuters, Vigrund, as well as near the northern entrance cape of the Narva River, which comes from the appendix to the Cabinet of Ministers.

On the border with Lithuania, the area of ​​the Curonian Spit in the Gulf of Gdansk, the areas of Cape Taran, the cape south of Cape Taran, as well as the Baltic Spit came under review. The current geographical coordinates established by the USSR Council of Ministers in 1985 “do not fully correspond to the modern geographical situation,” the authors of the project claim.

The points were recorded “using small-scale maritime navigation charts,” which, in turn, were based on works from the mid-20th century, and this “does not allow us to determine the external boundary of the internal sea waters” of the Russian Federation, the document says.

As a result of the changes, “a previously absent system of straight baselines will be established on the southern part of the Russian islands in the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland, as well as in the area of ​​Baltiysk and Zelenogradsk, allowing the corresponding water areas to be used as internal sea waters of the Russian Federation; The passage of the State border of the Russian Federation at sea will change due to a change in the position of the external border of the territorial sea,” the authors of the project explained.

The 40-year-old resolution of the USSR Council of Ministers regulating the borders in the Baltic Sea is proposed by the Ministry of Defense to be partially “recognized as ineffective” (section “Baltic Sea”).

British Gov't Telling Citizens "Stock up on Three Days Food"

Hal Turner World May 22, 2024 Hits: 4166

Families in the United Kingdom are being urged to stockpile three days' worth of food and water to help build national 'resilience.'

Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden will advise people to make contingency plans for dealing with potential emergencies such as prolonged power cuts, cyber attacks and floods.

Last year, Mr Dowden said people should stock up on 'analogue capabilities', such as candles, torches (i.e. flashlights) and wind-up radios, to boost their 'personal resilience'.

Today he will go further by encouraging people to stock up with enough food and water to survive for three days without leaving their homes, sort of like people in Finland.

Finns are encouraged to stockpile food and water and to be prepared to 'shelter indoors' by taping up gaps in windows and 'waiting calmly for instructions' on the radio.

Last year, Mr Dowden introduced an 'emergency alert' system, which allows authorities to trigger an alarm on millions of mobile phones to inform people of a potential crisis.

It comes after the Prime Minister warned last week that Britain had 'some of its most dangerous years' ahead and was at a security 'crossroads'. Describing the threats on the rise, Rishi Sunak highlighted a new axis of anti-western states including China, Russia, North Korea and Iran.

(Hal Turner Remarks: "Prepare for 72 hours in home? Is that sort of like the time needed for nuclear fallout to dissipate? "Some of the most dangerous years ahead" . . . . "security crossroads" . . . . China, Russia, North Korea, Iran" . . . these are not words used to stir the public for "personal resilience." They seem to me to be words used to prepare the public for nuclear war.)

Incredible footage shows destruction as deadly tornadoes rip through Iowa and kill multiple people: 15 counties declared disaster zones with hospital forced to evacuate, homes toppled and 25 million under severe warnings

By Will Potter For Dailymail.Com

Published: 21:32 EDT, 21 May 2024 | Updated: 07:28 EDT, 22 May 2024

Incredible drone footage has captured the immense trail of destruction left across a small Iowa town after a tornado ripped through the state - killing multiple people and injuring dozens more.

Entire neighborhoods were flattened by several deadly twisters that gripped the region on Tuesday evening, with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds placing 15 counties under disaster emergency proclamations.

Hours after a tornado touched down in Greenfield, aerial footage showed where a tornado tore through the town as homes were leveled and trees were shredded down to their stumps.

Carnage is expected to continue through the Midwest as a storm system develops - with over 25 million people currently under severe weather warnings, stretching from Missouri to Wisconsin.

Iowa Police confirmed there have been multiple fatalities in the deadly weather front. One death occurred in Adams County, Iowa, around 90 miles southwest of Des Moines, when a woman was ejected from a vehicle during the brutal storm.

Footage showed widespread damage hours after the tornadoes tore through rural Iowa, including entire trees being shredded from their roots.

The small town of Greenfield, around 40 miles from the death in Adams County, was among the hardest hit, and a tornado that developed around 5pm leveled hundreds of homes and left several people injured, Iowa State Patrol spokesperson Sgt. Alex Dinkla said.

At a press conference, Dinkla estimated that over a dozen people were hospitalized, but could not offer an exact number. He added that all known residents were accounted for, but searches were still ongoing through the wreckage.

Images shared to Facebook by a Greenfield resident saw entire homes reduced to rubble and turned into scattered debris, while brick walls were flattened by the force of the twister.

A local hospital was hit by the fierce tornadoes, forcing staff and patients to evacuate the ransacked buildings and set up field hospitals at nearby high schools.

Massive wind turbines were also destroyed by the gusts, with at least three turbines destroyed in Adams County, and MidAmerican Energy Company said it owned several more that were destroyed in Adair County.

While aiding injured residents, the Adair County Memorial Hospital also 'sustained tornado damage', officials said, that forced it to transfer patients to other nearby medical centers.

Greenfield instated a mandatory curfew from 10pm to 7am as the aftermath is surveyed, however officials said the true extent of the devastation may not be clear until daybreak.

Heavy cleanup crews have been spotted across the state, with unaffected counties including Guthrie and Madison reportedly enlisted to help clear damage in Greenfield.

Early reports said multiple tornadoes were also reported in Montgomery County, and Meteorologists warned that the storm system across the Midwest may generate several more catastrophic-strength tornadoes.

In total across the Midwest, over 25 million people were under at least a Level 3 severe thunderstorm warnings on Tuesday evening.

It comes after a period of intense storms through the nation's heartland in recent days, including three minor tornadoes registered Monday in Minnesota, Nebraska and Colorado.

Although much of the early damage was contained to rural Iowa, officials warned that several large cities and population centers could find themselves in the storm's path.

Chicago and Milwaukee are both at risk of being hit by destructive storms, and Des Moines International Airport closed its runways in anticipation of tornadoes potentially landing late Tuesday.

Multiple regions have also seen flash flooding due to the storms, with heavy rainfall warnings instated across the Midwest.

Through Tuesday night, the Storm Prediction Center launched a rare 'potentially dangerous situation' tornado watch spanning Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois.

The tornado watch is only used when experts believe there is a high chance for multiple, long-lasting tornadoes registering at EF2 or stronger, meaning speeds of at least 111mph.

Residents in Greenfield described witnessing the devastation across their town, with Valerie Warrior telling KCCI she was our riding her bike when the storm descended.

'There's houses down all over the place,' Warrior said, noting that she raced to her basement to wait out the tornado before emerging to find the town covered in debris.

'Devastating,' she added.

Stunning images from storm chaser Nahel Belgherze focused on the damage seen in one Greenfield street, as a sleepy suburb was turned into rubble within hours.

Resident Donnell Griffith said despite the carnage, the small town of roughly 2,000 people will recover from the storms.

'We're a small community, we're a tough community... we will rebuild this community together,' she said.

'We're small but we're mighty.'

10 ASEAN Countries To Ditch the U.S. Dollar

Vinod Dsouza  May 20, 2024

The 10 ASEAN countries that are looking to stop using the U.S. dollar for trade are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. According to the latest figures from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), commonly called the World Bank, the combined GDP of ASEAN nations currently stands at around $4 trillion.

If the ASEAN alliance completely starts using local currencies for trade, the U.S. dollar will be in jeopardy. In particular, Indonesia is the most aggressive among the lot in pushing the de-dollarization agenda ahead. Indonesian President Joko Widodo is urging the bloc to quickly move away from the U.S. dollar and start using local currencies.

The move will strengthen their native economies giving local currencies a boost in the global foreign exchange markets. Several developing countries fear the rising U.S. debt of $34.4 trillion can affect their native economies and businesses. Therefore, the only solution to American debt is to make ASEAN countries use local currencies and sideline the U.S. dollar.

The U.S. pressing sanctions on other developing countries is also among the reasons why ASEAN wants to ditch the dollar. A stronger local currency will have no adverse effects from U.S. sanctions making their economies safer. In conclusion, the next decade will be different for the U.S. dollar as many nations are looking to uproot it.

The internet is disappearing, study says

Almost 40% of webpages from 2013 no longer exist a decade on, research finds

Andrew Griffin  14 hours ago Comments

The internet is disappearing, a new study has suggested, as web pages and online content is lost.

The web is often thought of as a place where content lasts forever. But vast swathes of its are being lost as pages are deleted or moved, according to new research.

Of the webpages that existed in 2013, for instance, 38 per cent are now lost. Even newer pages are disappearing: 8 per cent of pages that existed in 2023 are no longer available.

Those pages tend to disappear when they are deleted or moved. That happens on otherwise functional websites, the study from the Pew Research Center indicated, rather than happening when whole websites disappear.

The effect means that vast amounts of news and important reference content are disappearing. Some 23 per cent of news pages include at least one broken link, and 21 per cent of government websites, it said – and 54 per cent of Wikipedia pages include a link in their references that no longer exists.

Much the same effect is happening on social media. A fifth of tweets disappear from the site within months of being posted.

The study was completed by gathering a random samples of almost a million webpages, taken from Common Crawl, a service that archives parts of the internet. Researchers then looked to see whether those pages continued to exist between 2013 and 2023.

It found that 25 per cent of all pages collected between 2013 and 2023 were no longer available. Of those, 16 per cent of pages came from a website that continues to exist, while 9 per cent were located on websites that no longer exist at all.

The report, ‘When Online Content Disappears’, is published on the website of the Pew Research Center.

Chinese, Iranian, and Russian gangs are attacking U.S. drinking water and officials are alarmed

BY Michael Phillis, Matthew Daly and The Associated Press

Cyberattacks against water utilities across the country are becoming more frequent and more severe, the Environmental Protection Agency warned Monday as it issued an enforcement alert urging water systems to take immediate actions to protect the nation’s drinking water.

About 70% of utilities inspected by federal officials over the last year violated standards meant to prevent breaches or other intrusions, the agency said. Officials urged even small water systems to improve protections against hacks. Recent cyberattacks by groups affiliated with Russia and Iran have targeted smaller communities.

Some water systems are falling short in basic ways, the alert said, including failure to change default passwords or cut off system access to former employees. Because water utilities often rely on computer software to operate treatment plants and distribution systems, protecting information technology and process controls is crucial, the EPA said. Possible impacts of cyberattacks include interruptions to water treatment and storage; damage to pumps and valves; and alteration of chemical levels to hazardous amounts, the agency said.

“In many cases, systems are not doing what they are supposed to be doing, which is to have completed a risk assessment of their vulnerabilities that includes cybersecurity and to make sure that plan is available and informing the way they do business,” said EPA Deputy Administrator Janet McCabe.

Attempts by private groups or individuals to get into a water provider’s network and take down or deface websites aren’t new. More recently, however, attackers haven’t just gone after websites, they’ve targeted utilities’ operations instead.

Recent attacks are not just by private entities. Some recent hacks of water utilities are linked to geopolitical rivals, and could lead to the disruption of the supply of safe water to homes and businesses.

EPA did not say how many cyber incidents have occurred in recent years, and the number of attacks known to be successful so far is few.

McCabe named China, Russia and Iran as the countries that are “actively seeking the capability to disable U.S. critical infrastructure, including water and wastewater.”

Late last year, an Iranian-linked group called “Cyber Av3ngers” targeted multiple organizations including a small Pennsylvania town’s water provider, forcing it to switch from a remote pump to manual operations. They were going after an Israeli-made device used by the utility in the wake of Israel’s war against Hamas.

Earlier this year, a Russian-linked “hacktivist” tried to disrupt operations at several Texas utilities.

A cyber group linked to China and known as Volt Typhoon has compromised information technology of multiple critical infrastructure systems, including drinking water, in the United States and its territories, U.S. officials said. Cybersecurity experts believe the China-aligned group is positioning itself for potential cyberattacks in the event of armed conflict or rising geopolitical tensions.

“By working behind the scenes with these hacktivist groups, now these (nation states) have plausible deniability and they can let these groups carry out destructive attacks. And that to me is a game-changer,” said Dawn Cappelli, a cybersecurity expert with the industrial cybersecurity firm Dragos Inc.

The world’s cyberpowers are believed to have been infiltrating rivals’ critical infrastructure for years planting malware that could be triggered to disrupt basic services.

The enforcement alert is meant to emphasize the seriousness of cyberthreats and inform utilities the EPA will continue its inspections and pursue civil or criminal penalties if they find serious problems.

“We want to make sure that we get the word out to people that ‘Hey, we are finding a lot of problems here,’ ” McCabe said.

Preventing attacks against water providers is part of the Biden administration’s broader effort to combat threats against critical infrastructure. In February, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to protect U.S. ports. Health care systems have been attacked. The White House has pushed electric utilities to increase their defenses, too. EPA Administrator Michael Regan and White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan have asked states to come up with a plan to combat cyberattacks on drinking water systems.

Drinking water and wastewater systems are an attractive target for cyberattacks because they are a lifeline critical infrastructure sector but often lack the resources and technical capacity to adopt rigorous cybersecurity practices,” Regan and Sullivan wrote in a March 18 letter to all 50 U.S. governors.

Some of the fixes are straightforward, McCabe said. Water providers, for example, shouldn’t use default passwords. They need to develop a risk assessment plan that addresses cybersecurity and set up backup systems. The EPA says they will train water utilities that need help for free. Larger utilities usually have more resources and the expertise to defend against attacks.

“In an ideal world … we would like everybody to have a baseline level of cybersecurity and be able to confirm that they have that,” said Alan Roberson, executive director of the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators. “But that’s a long ways away.”

Some barriers are foundational. The water sector is highly fragmented. There are roughly 50,000 community water providers, most of which serve small towns. Modest staffing and anemic budgets in many places make it hard enough to maintain the basics — providing clean water and keeping up with the latest regulations.

“Certainly, cybersecurity is part of that, but that’s never been their primary expertise. So, now you’re asking a water utility to develop this whole new sort of department” to handle cyberthreats, said Amy Hardberger, a water expert at Texas Tech University.

The EPA has faced setbacks. States periodically review the performance of water providers. In March 2023, the EPA instructed states to add cybersecurity evaluations to those reviews. If they found problems, the state was supposed to force improvements.

But Missouri, Arkansas and Iowa, joined by the American Water Works Association and another water industry group, challenged the instructions in court on the grounds that EPA didn’t have the authority under the Safe Drinking Water Act. After a court setback, the EPA withdrew its requirements but urged states to take voluntary actions anyway.

The Safe Drinking Water Act requires certain water providers to develop plans for some threats and certify they’ve done so. But its power is limited.

There’s just no authority for (cybersecurity) in the law,” said Roberson.

Kevin Morley, manager of federal relations with the American Water Works Association, said some water utilities have components that are connected to the internet — a common, but significant vulnerability. Overhauling those systems can be a significant and costly job. And without substantial federal funding, water systems struggle to find resources.

The industry group has published guidance for utilities and advocates for establishing a new organization of cybersecurity and water experts that would develop new policies and enforce them, in partnership with the EPA.

“Let’s bring everybody along in a reasonable manner,” Morley said, adding that small and large utilities have different needs and resources.

Severe storms on Monday night pelted northeast Colorado with damaging hail that shattered windows and covered the ground like snow in the plains community of Yuma.

Volunteer firefighter JJ Unger told FOX31 there was hail damage across the area after the severe storm. And with the town already under a flash flood warning — and facing the threat of tornadoes — it had begun to flood with the hail backing up drainage flows.

“There’s going to be a lot of cleaning up to do in this town,” Unger said.

Widespread” power outages were reported Monday in northern Yuma County and the eastern edge of northern Washington County, according to Y-W Electric Association, Inc. Both counties were under tornado warnings at points in the night.

Unger described the chaotic scene as severe weather. He and other volunteer firefighters were called out for duty.

“We were out spotting and then we heard a big bolt of lightning and a big flash, and they said a power line was down in town, sparking and starting a little fire. So we started to head towards town and that’s when the hail started, and the hail came down like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was at least golf ball-size,” Unger said.

Cows hit by car, vehicles slide off highway during Colorado hailstorm

Crews had to pull over because of a lack of visibility as the hail poured over Yuma. Unger’s Ford F-150 pickup truck suffered damage, with the windshield battered — just as the windows were blasted out at the Yuma fire hall.

“I would assume all the vehicles around town and houses have windows that are shattered too,” Unger said.

Unger said vehicles slid off the road during the storm, and cows were on U.S. 34 heading toward town. At least one car hit one of them.

“We’re still kind of dealing with the aftermath here. A lot of our wives and people texting us that they were scared because all the windows in the houses were breaking,” Unger said.

Storm having lasting impact on Tuesday

Now that the storm has moved on, the city of Yuma is left to pick up the mess.

The Yuma School District announced that all schools and district offices would be closed on Tuesday due to the severe weather that moved through Monday night. All activities are canceled as well.

According to the Pinpoint Weather team, more storms are expected Tuesday night, but they are not predicted to be as severe.

Meanwhile, tornado destroys Iowa

An incredible drone footage has captured the immense trail of destruction left across a small Iowa town after a tornado ripped through the state – killing multiple people and injuring dozens more.

Entire neighborhoods were flattened by several deadly twisters that gripped the region on Tuesday evening, with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds placing 15 counties under disaster emergency proclamations.

Hours after a tornado touched down in Greenfield, aerial footage showed where a tornado tore through the town as homes were leveled and trees were shredded down to their stumps.

Carnage is expected to continue through the Midwest as a storm system develops – with over 25 million people currently under severe weather warnings, stretching from Missouri to Wisconsin.

Russia’s New Counterspace Weapon Is in the Same Orbit as a US Satellite

May 21, 2024 | By Greg Hadley and Chris Gordon

Russia launched a counterspace weapon into the same orbit as a U.S. government satellite on May 16, U.S. officials said, further increasing tensions between the two countries in space.

“On May 16, Russia launched a satellite into low Earth orbit that the United States assesses is likely a counterspace weapon presumably capable of attacking other satellites in low Earth orbit,” said U.S. Ambassador Robert Wood in a May 20 speech at the United Nations. “Russia deployed this new counterspace weapon into the same orbit as a U.S. government satellite.”

Pentagon press secretary Maj. Gen. Patrick S. Ryder said May 21 that “assessments further indicate characteristics resembling previously deployed counterspace payloads from 2019 and 2022.”

Ryder declined to discuss what U.S. intelligence agencies know about the satellite’s payload.

In late 2019, the Russians launched a satellite that then released a second satellite. Both satellites then followed a National Reconnaissance Office satellite. Then-Chief of Space Operations Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond compared them to Russian “nesting dolls.” Several months later, U.S. officials said the sub-satellite had released another object, apparently firing a projectile at high speed.

U.S. officials have not previously publicly discussed the 2022 counterspace payload, but they have highlighted other Russian counterspace efforts. In 2021, Russia tested a direct ascent anti-satellite missile on one of its own spacecraft, destroying it and creating a massive debris field in its wake. And earlier this year, then-Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy John F. Plumb confirmed concerns that Russia is developing an “indiscriminate” nuclear weapon to go in space.

The U.S. has since cosponsored a resolution in the UN calling on all nations not to develop or deploy nuclear weapons in outer space. Russia vetoed that resolution, however, then introduced one of its own condemning all weapons in space.

Wood, representing the U.S. at the UN Security Council, decried Russia’s resolution as “diplomatic gaslighting and dissembling.” He revealed the new counterspace satellite in a speech before a vote on the measure failed in the U.N. Security Council. The vote was a 7-7 tie, with Switzerland abstaining. The U.S. voted against it.

U.S. Space Force and Space Command officials have said that both Russia and China are ramping up their counterspace efforts, developing and testing new weapons like lasers to dazzle satellites, the “nesting dolls,” and a “grappling” satellite that can grab and tow other satellites out of their orbit.

Current CSO Gen. B. Chance Saltzman has said the Space Force will support “responsible counterspace campaigning” to counter the threat while ensuring space can remain usable for all nations.

Chinese President Xi lauds China-Russia ties as Putin lands in Beijing

By Reuters

Published May 16, 2024, 2:10 a.m. ET

Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to work with counterpart Vladimir Putin to “rejuvenate” their countries as the pair started a day of talks in Beijing, saying China would “always be a good partner” of Russia, according to Chinese state media.

Putin arrived earlier on Thursday for a two-day state visit that will include detailed talks on Ukraine, Asia, energy and trade with Xi, his most powerful political backer and fellow geopolitical rival of the United States.

“The China-Russia relationship today is hard-earned, and the two sides need to cherish and nurture it,” Xi told Putin as they met at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing for their opening session.

China is willing to…jointly achieve the development and rejuvenation of our respective countries, and work together to uphold fairness and justice in the world.”

China and Russia declared a “no limits” partnership in February 2022 when Putin visited Beijing just days before he sent tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine, triggering the deadliest land war in Europe since World War Two.

By picking China for his first foreign trip since being sworn in for a six-year term that will keep him in power until at least 2030, Putin is sending a message to the world about his priorities and the strength of his personal ties with Xi.

As they met, Putin told Xi that their cooperation was a stabilizing factor.

“It is of crucial significance that relations between Russia and China are not opportunistic and are not directed against anyone,” Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency cited Putin as saying.

Video shows man brutally kicking and beating Orthodox Jewish kids playing on NYC sidewalk

By Social Links for Amanda Woods and Social Links for Joe Marino

Published May 16, 2024, 2:42 p.m. ET

A Citi Bike-riding brute viciously beat two Orthodox Jewish boys, ages 11 and 13, playing on a Brooklyn sidewalk Sunday night in a disturbing, caught-on-video ordeal, cops and sources said.

Now the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating whether the attack — which saw the man kicking and stomping on one of the youngsters — was an antisemitic assault, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Several kids were playing in front of a condo building on Franklin Avenue near Myrtle Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 9 p.m. Sunday when a stranger stopped his bike mid-block, between two parked cars, and stormed up to the kids, according to the video, obtained by Williamsburg 365 News.

Get off the sidewalk,” cops say he snarled at the young crew – who were seen in the video wearing traditional Orthodox Jewish clothing.

He shoved one kid to the ground before knocking another to the pavement and kicking and stomping on him, according to the clip.

Both boys were “pushed” by the menace, according to the official police narrative.

They suffered minor cuts on the backs of their heads.

Police did not mention that the aggressor made any antisemitic statements.

It’s unclear whether the boys are related to each other.

The violent bike-rider could be seen pedaling away before the clip cut off.

No arrests had been made by Thursday.

Houston severe storms blow windows out of high-rise buildings, leave 4 dead and 1M without power

By Social Links for Andrew Wulfeck, FOX Weather

Published May 17, 2024, 12:03 a.m. ET

A storm system that threatened to produce torrential rainfall over East Texas spawned severe thunderstorms in the nation’s fourth-largest city Thursday, causing at least four fatalities and leaving more than 1 million customers without power.

The local National Weather Service office issued several Tornado Warnings for the Houston metro but by the time the storms cleared, it was strong winds that are believed to have caused most of the damage.

Winds estimated to be in excess of 70 mph toppled trees, blew out windows of high-rise buildings and caused transmission towers holding power lines to crumble.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office encouraged everyone to stay off the roads as trees blocked streets, with power outages climbing above 800,000 in the Houston metro.

PowertOuage.us reported nearby counties also were dealing with outages, sending the state’s tally to well over 1 million customers.

Houston Mayor John Whitmire said at least four people were killed by the storm and state resources were being requested to help with the recovery.

“The roof of the Hyatt Regency downtown blew out. Rain and debris pouring down to the lobby,” a customer at the hotel told FOX Weather.

He said staff was doing the best they could to keep people safe and away from the debris.

Windows also appeared to be blown out in other downtown buildings, including around the Wells Fargo Plaza.

In nearby Minute Maid Park, wind and water were seen seeping into the building, but the severe weather did not appear to affect the play of the Astros baseball game.

“It is all hands on deck tonight…Downtown is a mess, so stay at home tonight and tomorrow,” said Whitmire.

Local residents described the impacts of the storm as being hurricane-like despite the severe weather lasting less than an hour.

Ground stops were also issued at Bush Intercontinental Airport and Houston William P. Hobby Airport due to the severe weather.

The Houston school district closed all public schools on Friday and said they would reopen on Monday.

The dangerous thunderstorms were expected to transition into a flood threat during the overnight hours as already saturated grounds were expected to receive an additional 2-5″ of rainfall.

French synagogue arsonist stabs officer, shot by police

Thoughts and full support to the Jewish Community of Rouen,” said Rouen Mayor Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol.

By MICHAEL STARR, REUTERS

MAY 17, 2024 09:31  Updated: MAY 17, 2024 15:27

A man armed with a knife stabbed a French police officer when he was confronted for setting a Rouen synagogue on fire on Friday, after which the attack was shot by police, said Rabbi Shmuel Lubecki.

The arsonist had climbed onto the building and set a fire. Lubecki said that he had still not been able to enter the building to fully assess the damage, but noted that it was not significant and the holy books had not been harmed.

The man who set fire to a synagogue in Rouen before being shot dead by police was of Algerian origin, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told reporters on Friday.

"The person who set fire to the synagogue in Rouen was not French, he was of Algerian origin," said Darmanin, as he held a news conference in Rouen.

Rouen Mayor Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol said on social media from the scene of the incident that the fire was under control by firefighters and that there were no other casualties besides the assailant.

“Thoughts and full support to the Jewish Community of Rouen,” said the mayor. "Through this attack and this attempted burning of the synagogue of Rouen, it is not only the Jewish community that is affected. The entire town of Rouen is hurt and in shock."

The Prefecture of Normandy and Seine-Maritime said it had confidence that the judicial system would establish the facts of the incident and offer support to Jewish citizens.

"The State is and will be at their side for their security, that of their places of worship, and to guarantee the exercise of their faith," said the Prefecture. "In the face of hatred, the Republic stands tall."

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin praised law enforcement “for their responsiveness and courage.

'Antisemitic drama'

According to French media, Elie Korchia, president of the Central Consistory of France, said an "antisemitic drama" was prevented by the police.

Central Consistory of France president Elie Korchia said on X that police prevented "a new antisemitic tragedy in our country."

French Chief Rabbi Haïm Korsia also thanked the police as well as political leaders for their support.

"I was able to speak at length with the president of the community, and I will spend a Shabbat there very soon to assure the congregants of my full support," Korsia wrote on social media.

As he prepared for Shabbat, Lubecki said that the Jewish community should remain prideful of their Jewish identity, which would make it impossible for antisemites to win.

This is a developing story.

Out Of Control Inflation: It Now Takes At Least $177,798 For A Family Of 4 To Live Comfortably In The US

May 17, 2024

rtably In The US

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

I never imagined that we would ever see a time when it takes $177,798 for a family of four to live comfortably in the United States. Unfortunately, that day has arrived. Our leaders have been pursuing highly inflationary policies for many years, and now we have reached a point where inflation is wildly out of control. In fact, the latest wholesale inflation figure that was released on Tuesday came in much higher than expected. Sadly, this is just the beginning and we are in far more trouble than most people realize.

According to an incredibly shocking new study, most Americans do not make enough money to “live comfortably” in the highly inflationary environment that we find ourselves in today…

A recent study has revealed the incomes needed for families to live comfortably across the United States – and the stark contrast in the cost of living between states is startling.

The study revealed that in the most expensive states, families need nearly $300,000 to simply live ‘comfortably.’

The least expensive state requires about half that salarystill over $100,000.

Meanwhile, the average annual salary in the US is $59,428, or $28.34 per hour, as of May 2024.

The study determined that Massachusetts is the most expensive state.

It takes a whopping $301,184 a year for a family of four to “live comfortably” there.

The least expensive state is Mississippi.

In the Magnolia State, it only takes $177,798 a year for a family of four “to cover their expenses and maintain a satisfactory quality of life”.

This is our country now.

I feel like I have been banging my head into a wall. For more than a decade I have warned that this would happen, and now it is here.

And even more inflation is on the way…

Americans already contending with persistent and stubbornly high inflation just got more unwelcome news on Tuesday: There are more price hikes likely coming down the pike.

Wholesale inflation picked up in April to its highest rate in a year, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released Tuesday.

In April, inflation at the wholesale level jumped 0.5 percent in just one month…

Inflation at the wholesale level rose much more than expected in April, the latest sign that price pressures within the economy remain elevated and difficult to tame.

The Labor Department said Tuesday that its producer price index, which measures inflation at the wholesale level before it reaches consumers, rose 0.5% in April from the previous month.

If you multiply that figure by 12 months, you get 6 percent.

And of course you need to approximately double any number that the Biden administration gives us in order to come up with a figure that is anywhere close to accurate.

By now, just about everyone realizes that the rate of inflation in this country is massively understated.

For example, Joe Biden insists that the rate of inflation has been “low” for quite some time, but home prices have risen by more than 47 percent since the start of this decade…

Home prices have surged 47.1% since the start of 2020, easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

That’s according to a recent analysis by ResiClub of the Case-Shiller National Home Price Index, which showed that house prices in the 1990s and 2010s grew a respective 30.1% and 44.7%.

Let’s all be honest with one another.

The truth is that we are in the midst of a raging cost of living crisis that has no end in sight.

And this should not surprise any of us. Our politicians continue to borrow and spend trillions upon trillions of dollars, and all of this borrowing and spending is extremely inflationary…

An economic specter haunts America. It’s also one that many American politicians – Republican and Democrat – say a great deal about but are reluctant to address.

The name of that shadow is the United States National Debt: what the US Treasury Department defines as “the amount of money the Federal Government has borrowed to cover the outstanding balance of expenses incurred over time.”

If you go to the Treasury’s website, you can see just how big that debt is. In mid-May, it was 34.5 trillion dollars. The pace of the growth in that debt is equally stunning. Approximately 1 trillion dollars is being added to America’s National Debt every 100 days.

Borrowing and spending another trillion dollars every 100 days is a completely and utterly insane thing to do.

We really are in the endgame.

Earlier this week, Fed Chair Jerome Powell warned that interest rates may have to stay high for an extended period of time in order to fight inflation…

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said Tuesday that “it may take longer than expected” for high interest rates to lower inflation and gave no hint that a recently slowing labor market could mean earlier rate cuts.

We’ll need to be patient and let restrictive policy do its work,” Powell said during a session at a Foreign Bankers Association meeting in Amsterdam. “It may be that (high interest rates) take longer than expected to do its work and bring inflation down.”

So far, higher rates have not solved our cost of living crisis, and that is because our politicians continue to spend money like drunken sailors.

But higher rates are crushing the overall economy.

Yesterday, I wrote about the “restaurant apocalypse” that is starting to sweep across America.

This week, it got even worse.

We just learned that at least 99 Red Lobster locations have been shut down and will be auctioned off…

At least 99 locations of Red Lobster are being auctioned off amid questions about the stalwart seafood chain’s long-term future.

In a post Monday on LinkedIn, Neal Sherman, founder and CEO of TAGeX Brands, a liquidation firm, announced he was leading the closure of more than 50 Red Lobster locations, with the restaurants’ equipment to be auctioned off.

A web page dedicated to the liquidations showed closure locations across the U.S. including in Denver; Indianapolis; Rochester, New York; Sacramento, California; San Antonio; and San Diego.

On Tuesday, Restaurant Business Magazine reported 99 locations were closing.

For the Red Lobster workers that just lost their jobs, the end came very suddenly

A third Red Lobster employee took the news in stride, posting: ‘red lobster just laid all of us off without notice and closed for good LMAOO.’

The employee added in replied that Red Lobster didn’t tell managers until 8am yesterday.

Of course it isn’t just restaurant chains that are closing locations.

In fact, even Walmart is closing stores and auctioning off inventory…

After announcing that it would be shutting its doors for good, one Ohio Walmart auctioned off its remaining inventory, including flat-screen televisions, laptops and furniture, for a bargain.

The Walmart at 3579 S. High St. in Columbus opted not to renew its lease in a once-bustling strip plaza. Representatives announced the closure in February, claiming the store had failed to ‘meet financial expectations’.

Last week, the store offloaded its merchandise through a liquidation auction. Bidding closed the morning of May 10, with some items like laptops going for under $20.

If interest rates stay high, we are going to see a lot more of this sort of thing.

But the Federal Reserve is very hesitant to cut rates at this point because of the cost of living crisis.

Officials at the Fed really are caught in a “deer in the headlights” moment right now.

But no matter which way they ultimately choose to go, in the short-term more “stagflation” is ahead.

And in the long-term, the exceedingly foolish policies that our leaders have been pursuing are going to result in a systemic collapse of absolutely epic proportions.

At least four killed and more than one million without power as wild storm topples power lines, uproots trees and blows out high-rise windows in Houston

By Ishita Srivastava For Dailymail.Com

Published: 01:59 EDT, 17 May 2024 | Updated: 03:57 EDT, 17 May 2024

At least four people have been killed after hurricane-force winds, life-threatening flooding and torrential rains destroyed the city of Houston, Texas, yesterday.

While the National Weather Service office issued a tornado warning for the city yesterday, it was winds reaching over 70 mph that toppled trees, blew out windows and left over a million people without power.

Houston Mayor John Whitmire said in a news conference that two people were killed by downed trees and a third died after a crane toppled over.

He did not clarify how the fourth person died. The victims are yet to be identified.

Whitmire has advised residents to stay at home on Friday instead of driving into work and asked only essential workers to make the dangerous commute.

Schools have also been closed due to the widespread power outages and disabled traffic lights.

'Stay at home tonight, do not go to work tomorrow unless you're an essential worker. Stay home, take care of your children.

'Our first responders will be working around the clock,' the mayor told the panicked public.

Videos and images show windows being blown out in downtown buildings, cranes swaying in the wind, people running for shelter as record-breaking rains fall over the city along with debris destroying houses and cars.

The Houston Fire Department has advised locals to leave their homes immediately and call 911 if they smell gas in their house.

According to FOX Weather, nearby counties near Houston are also dealing with electricity loss.

The storm has caused major flooding in the city of Bryan - causing 20 drivers to be rescued from the rising level of water, according to CNN.

The mayor has said it would take 24 to 48 hours for power to be restored in some areas.

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

What if these missiles don't land in the ocean, but instead enter the US with live warheads, and begin hitting targets?

All of this trouble is taking place because the United States government is meddling in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Instead of minding our own business, we are supplying weapons, intelligence, reconnaissance, mercenaries, and cash to Ukraine, so they can kill Russians.

Russia is now so fed-up with US (and our NATO vassals) interfering in Ukraine, that they are now launching missiles to IMPACT in the Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center area, as a warning to us that Russia is at our doorstep, and ready to hit **us** if we keep meddling in their affairs.

Our own government is misbehaving in a way that is now endangering ALL our lives.

Yemen Downs ANOTHER U.S. MQ-9 "Reaper" Drone

Hal Turner World May 16, 2024 Hits: 9312

An American MQ9 drone was shot down by a Yemeni drone by the Houthis "Ansar Allah" organization in Marib Governorate, Yemen, today. THis is the FOURTH US MQ-9 "Reaper" to be shot down by Yemen this year.

This may be the first battle in history between two drones, the first American-made and the second Yemeni-made, which ended in favor of the Yemeni march by shooting down the American MQ9.

China DUMPS Largest Amount of US Treasuries in History

Hal Turner World May 16, 2024 Hits: 23774

In an unprecedented move, China offloads a record $53.3 billion of U.S. Treasuries and agency bonds.

With economic relations between China and the United States continuing to raise investor concern, China has deviated from historical norms by offloading one of the largest amounts of US Treasury and agency debt.

Particularly, in the first quarter of 2024, China offloaded a record-breaking $53.3 billion of U.S. Treasuries and agency bonds.

Notably, China, traditionally a major holder of US debt, reduced its Treasury holdings by $22 billion during the first three months of 2024, while the remainder of the offloaded assets comprised agency bonds, according to data. which came out May 16.

China is clearly acting to intentionally distance its exposure to the US because the Chinese government knows, if they take Taiwan by force, the US will "cancel" those bonds, and stiff China for the money.

After seeing what the US has done to Russia, the flat-out theft of much of its Sovereign Wealth Fund over the Ukraine situation, China does no want to end up in the same boat, being robbed by the treacherous US government.

US Sending Nuclear-Powered Carrier For 'Higher Stakes' Red Sea Mission

by Tyler Durden  Saturday, May 18, 2024 - 11:35 AM

Since the start of the Gaza war at least 20 ships have been damaged in the Red Sea amid the ongoing Houthi campaign to punish Israel and its international backers. The US-led Operation Prosperity Guardian is something which has retreated from headlines as it has by and large proved ineffective.

US warships patrolling waters off Yemen have shot down dozens, or possibly even hundreds of drones and missiles at this point - while also at times carrying out offensive operations - but the Iran supported Houthis have remained undeterred.

The Pentagon is now readying the next step, sending the USS Harry S. Truman nuclear-powered aircraft carrier into the Red Sea. US military magazine Stripes writes of recent planning: "The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and its 6,000-some sailors have spent recent months training in the western Atlantic Ocean for that missiona rare, pre-planned deployment expected to take the ship into a hostile environment."

"In recent weeks, its sailors have been undergoing flight deck testing, its pilots knowing that later this year they will be tasked with shooting down drones and munitions launched by the Iran-backed Houthis," the publication details further.

European allies, and groups like the Atlantic Council have been bitterly complaining about the ongoing 'failures' of the Pentagon-led mission thus far:

Six months after the Joe Biden administration launched Operation Prosperity Guardian to ensure freedom of navigation in the Red Sea, the biggest issue facing the White House is not the Houthi threat but the US failure to rally partners and allies behind its leadership.

Several costly MQ-9 Reaper drones have already been lost in the region, with some shot down by the Houthis, as the US continues to expend billions related to Gaza conflict spillover.

While the Truman carrier will certainly be a huge show of force, it could be more simply that the 1,000-foot-long, 104,000-ton vessel will just make for a bigger Houthi target.

Head of the US Navy Fleet Forces Command Adm. Daryl Caudle has described of sailors preparing for the mission, "They know that they’re most likely going to be entering a weapon engagement zone."

"For this group, this [deployment] is not with the mindset that they’re just going to go drill holes in the water somewhere — this is, ‘We’re going to be employed for combat.’"

Back in November, there was this stunning and contradictory admission from the Commander-in-Chief:

This is peak American foreign policy... When asked if the strikes on Yemen are working Biden replies: “When you say working, are they stopping the Houthis? No. Are they going to continue? Yes.”

Literally saying "bombing these folks is useless, but we'll keep doing it". pic.twitter.com/otzJC6hzpS

— Arnaud Bertrand (@RnaudBertrand) January 19, 2024

As has been the sad pattern after more that 20 years of the so-called Global War on Terror (GWOT), this naval commander is openly talking about deploying for "combat" in a new volatile and high-stakes theater, and yet there's never been formal Congressional authorization to go to war with Yemen or the Houthis. Of course, there have been many such cases.

US ban on Russian uranium could backfire

Could mean shutting down much of US nuclear generation, with no way to replace Russian deliveries for a long time

by Judith Perera May 17, 2024

US President Joe Biden has now signed into law HR 1042, the Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act, banning the import of uranium products from Russia The ban goes into effect 90 days after it was signed into law and prohibits any import of unirradiated low-enriched uranium (LEU) produced in the Russian Federation or by a Russian entity.

Waivers may be granted to allow the import of limited amounts of LEU, under certain circumstances, until January 1, 2028. The new legislation permits the Department of Energy (DOE) to issue waivers authorizing the entire volume of Russian uranium imports allowed under export limits set in an earlier anti-dumping agreement between the Department of Commerce and Russia which expires in 2027.

There are predictions that waivers will be needed and granted. “No one will dare” to enforce the law without granting waivers, says Alexey Anpilogov, a Russian political scientist and expert in nuclear energy – “because American nuclear reactors produce cheap electricity. And the green transition that was declared in the United States also implies the preservation of nuclear energy as a carbon-neutral sector of electricity production.”

A long history

US concern over Russian enriched uranium has a long history. In an effort to prevent an influx of cheap Russian enrichment services into the US after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US nuclear energy industry instigated an anti-dumping petition in 1991. This resulted in the adoption in 1992 of the Russian Suspension Agreement (RSA) between the US Department of Commerce and Russia’s Ministry of Atomic Energy (now Rosatom). The agreement introduced formal quotas on the import of Russian enriched uranium. It was amended in 2008 and 2020.

According to the US Energy Information Administration, Russia has been supplying about 24% of enriched uranium used to fuel the US fleet of 94 commercial reactors, with 12% coming from Germany and 11% from the UK. US production accounts for 27%.

The US DOE says Russia has roughly 44% of the world’s uranium enrichment capacity and supplies approximately 35% of US imports for nuclear fuel.

The United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC) ceased production in 2001. Following bankruptcy in 2014, USEC re-emerged as Centrus Energy Corp. While Centrus is developing new centrifuge technologies with the aim of restoring US domestic uranium enrichment capability, it primarily acts as a broker of enriched uranium, sourcing foreign supplies for US and international customers.

According to Centrus’s 2023 annual report to the US Securities & Exchange Commission, Russia’s Tenex is Centrus’s largest supplier, followed by French company Orano. Centrus has commitments with Tenex for the supply of Russian enrichment services to 2028.

Centrus has made clear that it will apply for waivers from the secretary of energy and other applicable government agencies to request permission to continue supplying LEU to its customers. “It is uncertain whether any waiver would be granted and, if granted, whether any waiver would be granted in a timely manner,” it noted. “The Company anticipates having adequate liquidity to support its business operations for at least the next 12 months.”

The only commercial enrichment operation in the US is Urenco’s facility in New Mexico, which began operations in 2010. Urenco is jointly owned by the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

At the end of last year, Urenco approved an investment to expand enrichment capacity at its facility in the Netherlands. Earlier in May, the UK government awarded £196 million ($245 million) to Urenco to build a new uranium enrichment facility at its Capenhurst site in northwest England.

Aside from Russia, other countries with enrichment capacity include Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, the Netherlands, North Korea, Pakistan, and the UK. Some are now seeking to expand their facilities.

Currently Russia is the world’s only commercial source of the more highly enriched high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel that’s needed for many of the small and advanced reactors now in the design stage.

Some providers in the US, with federal support, are in the process of producing HALEU. Under a 2019 contract with DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy, Centrus licensed and built a new cascade of 16 centrifuges at Piketon, Ohio, to demonstrate production of HALEU. The Piketon demonstration project last year produced its first amounts of HALEU for next-generation reactors, with plans to increase production to 900 kilograms in the near future. However, this is nowhere near enough to fill the gap that will be left if Russian supplies cease.

Optimism in the Biden administration

US officials have been upbeat about the ban. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said the new law “re-establishes America’s leadership in the nuclear sector. It will help secure our energy sector for generations to come. And – building off the unprecedented $2.72 billion in federal funding that Congress recently appropriated at the President’s request – it will jump-start new enrichment capacity in the United States and send a clear message to industry that we are committed to long-term growth in our nuclear sector.”

Sullivan said the law also delivers on multilateral targets, including an announcement last year by the USA with Canada, France, Japan and the UK of plans to collectively invest $4.2 billion to expand their enrichment and conversion capacity. “With these funds from Congress, we have well-exceeded that pledge and are working with industry to realize this ambition,” Sullivan said.

DOE said the ban “brings us one step closer to developing a reliable supply of nuclear fuel that will be required by the United States and its allies to triple nuclear capacity by 2050, creating thousands of high-paying jobs along the way.”

Squeezing the industry

However, even before the ban became law, concerns about fuel supplies were having an effect on the myriad of companies that have produced designs for small and advanced modular reactors, some with significant government support. Many companies have highly optimistic targets of deploying their first reactors by 2030, although most are still in the design stage.

For example, the Natrium technology being developed by US TerraPower and GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy features a 345-megawatt liquid-sodium-cooled fast reactor with a separate molten-salt-based energy storage system. Along with PacifiCorp and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, members of the demonstration project team include engineering and construction partner Bechtel, Energy Northwest, Duke Energy and nearly a dozen additional companies, universities and national laboratory partners.

Natrium is one of two competitively-selected Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP) projects supported by DOE. The company originally had hoped to commission the plant in 2028 using Russian-supplied HALEU fuel to get a demonstration unit up and running by 2028. However, concerns about Russian HALEU deliveries have pushed the commissioning date to 2030.

The uranium ban legislation expires at the end of 2040. In the meantime, while one of its purposes is to undermine Russia’s dominance of the international market for nuclear fuel and technology, Russian offiicials have been quick to point out that its most negative effects are likely to be on the global market.

Kremlin reaction

Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom called the ban a discriminatory political move that would undermine the international market for enriched uranium but would not stop Russia from developing its global business.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a news briefing that “it’s hard for the Americans to compete with us on the international market,” adding that the ban was “nothing more than unfair competition” and not critical for the Russian nuclear industry. “Our nuclear industry is one of the most advanced in the world,” Peskov said. “We will continue to develop this industry.”

Russia’s ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said:

The Administration continues its stillborn policy of inflicting strategic economic defeat on us. The current attack – not only on Russia, but also on the world market for uranium fuel used in nuclear power plants – will lead to new shocks in international economic relations. The delicate balance between exporters and importers of uranium products is under threat. Washington lacks sufficient national enrichment capacity and so is harming its own economy. Moreover, the financial losses for the United States will be much greater than for Russia.

The world leader

Rosatom is the world leader in terms of the number of nuclear reactor construction projects being undertaken simultaneously, with three units in Russia and 33 abroad.

Moreover, its foreign projects all involve ongoing technical support, training and 60-year-long fuel supplies. Since 2023 Rosatom also become the exclusive supplier to Brazil of products related to enriched uranium. This long-term partnership with Brasilia replaces previous imports from Canada and European consortia.

Rosatom’s foreign projects include:

the four-unit Akkuyu NPP under construction in Turkiye Akkuyu;

the four-unit El Dabaa NPP under construction in Egypt;

four more units at Kudankulam NPP in India, with promises of further contracts;

four units in China; and

two units in Bangladesh.

Several countries in sub-Saharan Africa including Burkina Faso, Mali, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Ethiopia also have agreements related to nuclear energy with Rosatom. It is also in talks with South Africa and Sri Lanka. In Bolivia it is finishing construction of a research reactor and laboratory complex.

Anpilogov, the specialist quoted in the third paragraph of this article, told the Sputnik news agency that the ban would mean halting a quarter or even a third of all American nuclear generation and that the US would be unable to replace Russia’s deliveries of both LEU and HALEU for a long time.

He emphasized that, if the DOE should fail to issue waivers, the US nuclear fuel market could collapse, leading to skyrocketing costs of enriched uranium. He also suggested that US companies might resort to “gray schemes” to purchase Russian nuclear fuel, disguising the deals as contracts with French or other foreign companies.

“Back in the 1980s, the Americans de facto destroyed their enrichment industry because it was ineffective, being based on old gaseous-diffusion technologies,” said Ampilogov, who is president of Russia’s Foundation for Support of Scientific Research and Development of Civil Initiatives Research. “For 30 years they bought relatively inexpensive Russian uranium. The cornerstone of America’s nuclear energy generation can’t be abandoned through a simple vote in Congress.”

Ampilogov observed that it took the United States some four years to produce the first 20 kilograms of HALEU after launching a similar initiative back in 2019. He noted that the planned UK enrichment plant is expected to produce its first batch of HALEU only in 2031, and by that time “a lot is going to change on the market.”

Will Things Get Worse During the End Times? Matt Chandler’s Take on Cultural Chaos and ‘Embers’ of Spiritual Revival

By Billy Hallowell  Editor May 13, 2024

Matt Chandler, pastor of The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, sees “embers” of spiritual revival popping up all around the nation, even as chaotic cultural conundrums seem to be increasing.

Listen to the latest episode of CBN News’ “Quick Start” podcast

There’s been an earnest desire to see God do something significant for a long time,” Chandler, author of the new book, “The Overcomers: God’s Vision for You to Thrive in an Age of Anxiety and Outrage,” told CBN News.

The Texas preacher said last year’s Asbury outpouring, mass baptisms, and other events show an elevated spiritual fervor breaking out in various areas of the country.

And Chandler believes these events have helped inspire the faithful.

“For those who are outside of a smaller group that have been really kind of contending for this and asking God to do this, it put it back in … maybe the center of the imagination of what’s possible,” Chandler said.

These moments come at an intriguing time, as culture and society seem to be in tatters, particularly on the moral and ethical fronts. With culture always marching toward the end of days, some have wondered, biblically speaking, whether negative events happening indicate we’re now closer than ever.

But the baptisms and elevated spiritual temperature of late could throw some common beliefs up into the air. For instance, some might assume revival or spiritual outpourings won’t happen as the end draws near, but Chandler believes both can unfold, simultaneously

I think they absolutely will happen at the same time — that it will get better and worse, simultaneously,” Chandler said. “More than the Bible paints a picture of things getting worse, and worse, and worse, and worse, and worse until the Lord comes, it paints a picture of both happening.”

He believes Jesus referenced this very thing in Matthew 13:24-30, when He talked about wheat and tares growing together until the “harvest comes.”

“The wheat and the tares … they’re growing up together … until the harvest comes,” Chandler said.

He also cited other end-times verses to argue that some people might be misreading Scripture by assuming everything will simply be terrible in the end.

The Bible says that people will be getting married and given in marriage, just like they were in the day of Noah,” he said. “It’s an ordinary time. There’s horrible things; there’s beautiful things. We’re just going to be getting married. We’re going to be doing the things that we normally do, and then the end will come.”

Watch Chandler explain.

The Halls of Inclusion Are Beginning to Exclude Jews

By Hal Lindsey

The world finds excuses to hate Jews. People across the globe are blaming individual Jews for Israel’s war on Hamas. Even Jews who do not support the invasion of Gaza are being blamed for it. On US college campuses, Jewish students are threatened, harassed, and no longer feel safe. Hate crime against Muslims is on the rise, but it’s even worse for Jews. The Bible says that this tendency toward Jew-hatred would get worse in the end times. And we’re seeing it right now.

You may have heard about the Williamsburg, Virginia street festival canceling a Hanukkah-related menorah lighting ceremony. After receiving criticism for the snub, festival organizers told the press that they rejected the menorah lighting because they have a policy against any kind of religious ceremony. But in an email to the rabbi who was supposed to have conducted the lighting, they said they would allow it if an Islamic group also took part. So, apparently religious expression is okay if it includes Muslims.

An event organizer explained, “We are about Peace, Love & light… don’t want to make it seem we’re choosing a side — supporting the killing/bombing of thousands of men, women & children.” But they also told the rabbi he could go on with the ceremony if he held it beneath a banner calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. That’s called taking a side.

Do you see what they did? They identified the menorah with the IDF’s military action in Gaza. They don’t just blame Israel for what they call the “killing/bombing,but all Jews. This one snub would be almost nothing if it were alone. But people all over the world are doing what they did — blaming the suffering of Palestinians on all Jews.

In the same vein, a Maine town removed a Star of David because a local Arab American organization called it “offensive.” The town later said it was done in order to comply with the first amendment’s “establishment clause.” But you would have to be deluded to think that allowing a Star of David in a Christmas display amounts to anything like government “establishing” a state religion. The original reason is obviously the real one. The Star of David stands for Jews, and the very existence of Jews offends some in the Arab American community. Members of the KKK also find the existence of Jews offensive. But we should not base community standards on anyone’s bigotry.

The Star of David threatens no one. It is an acknowledgement of a people and their history. Jesus, Joseph, and Mary were part of that people and history. So, the Star of David is a perfectly appropriate symbol to put up as part of a Christmas display. Likewise, no one should see a menorah as a threat. People are using Israel’s war with Hamas as an excuse to hate Jews, something as common in humans and as evil as the seven deadly sins. One wonders if the woke crowd will start banning the Star of David from their “coexist” bumper stickers.

The Bible tells us to expect increasing levels of persecution for both Jews and Christians in the time leading up to the Lord’s return. It’s happening now, and it’s getting worse. Still, God’s promises remain in effect. In Luke 21:33 (NASB), Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.”

Hamas plans to set up secret base in Turkey, secret documents reveal - report

Erdogan insists that Hamas has not been carrying out terrorist operations from Turkey despite meetings with Hamas leaders and allowing the Palestinian group to maintain offices in Istanbul

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

MAY 15, 2024 06:47 Updated: MAY 15, 2024 08:29

Hamas has been planning to establish a secret base in Turkey as well as other terror cells elsewhere in order to coordinate attacks against Israeli targets in neighboring countries, including members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) according to a document captured by the IDF in Gaza, The Times revealed in an exclusive report.

The secret document, titled “Founding a base in Turkey,'' was discovered in the chief of staff to Yahya Sinwar, Hamza Abu Shanab’s home, The Times reported, citing the IDF. The document says Israel’s efforts to clamp down on the Gaza Strip over the past decade has "put Hamas on the defensive."

According to the plan, this is the reason for establishing bases in different locations, for the purpose of strengthening "the forces of resistance militarily, diplomatically and morally.” The bases were planned to be hubs for special operations “capable of carrying out intelligence and military operations in the future.”

The document outlines a three year plan, and also mentions plans for assassinations. Targets for assassination are “officers and commanders in Mossad,” and “influential Israelis.” It also mentions “sabotage of Israeli naval vessels” and “kidnapping,” according to The Times report.

The plan includes details on who will be stationed at the base in Turkey and how it will be funded. It is unclear whether the plan had begun being executed before Hamas launched its attack on October 7.

The Turkish government has expressed support for Hamas, calling it a “liberation group,” and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “has reached a level that would make Hitler jealous with his genocidal methods.”

Erdogan's support for Hamas

On Sunday, Erdogan announced that hospitals in Turkey are treating over 1,000 members of Hamas.

Erdogan said that he was saddened by Greece’s stance that Hamas is a terrorist organization at a press conference after talks with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Ankara.

Let’s agree to disagree,” Mitsotakis said, before concluding that the two leaders could agree that violence must end and a long-term ceasefire is necessary.

Last month, Hamas’s political leader, Ismail Haniyeh, met with Erdogan in Istanbul. Erdogan still insists that Hamas has not been carrying out terrorist operations from or within Turkey despite these meetings and allowing the Palestinian group to maintain offices in Istanbul.

As a NATO member country, intelligence sources believe that Erdogan is strongly against Turkey becoming a base for Hamas’s terrorist activities, despite his public shows of support for its political leaders, according to The Times.

In 2020, after The Times revealed that Turkey had become a base for Hamas’s cyber warfare operations, the Turkish authorities warned the organization to stop its activities. Zaher Jabarin, who handles Hamas funding outside Gaza, is based in Istanbul.

Ibrahim Kalin, Turkey’s intelligence chief, met Hamas leaders in Qatar on Sunday to discuss ceasefire talks and delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Erdogan told Muslim scholars in Istanbul that Hamas had accepted a ceasefire proposal by Qatar and Egypt. He accused Netanyahu’s government of not wanting the war to end.

Erdogan on Sunday called on countries to recognize a Palestinian sovereign state and accused western countries “who lecture us on human rights and freedoms at every opportunity” of hypocrisy.

This month he issued orders to end all trade between Turkey and Israel. Israeli trade officials, however, reported that this was an empty order and that trade continues between the two countries.

IDF: 13 soldiers injured in Gaza, four in serious condition

Military reports soldiers evacuated to the hospital following two separate incidents in the northern and southern parts of the Gaza Strip

Yoav Zitun|Yesterday | 12:29

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit reported on Tuesday that 13 soldiers have been injured in two separate incidents in northern and southern Gaza, with four of them being evacuated to the hospital in serious condition.

Three of the soldiers, serving at the Paratroopers Brigade’s 202nd Battalion, were injured during engagements against terrorists in the northern part of the Strip. Five other soldiers received moderate injuries in the same incident.

In another incident in the southern part of the Strip, a soldier serving in the Givati Brigade was seriously injured as a result of an explosive charge. Four additional soldiers present in the area were injured and evacuated to the hospital in minor to moderate condition.

Meanwhile, the IDF has issued an evacuation notice to residents of neighborhoods in the northern Gaza Strip. According to the notice, "Hamas and other terrorist organizations are using your lands for terrorist activities and the launching of rockets into Israeli territory, and therefore the IDF will act against them soon."

The IDF and Shin Bet reported earlier on Tuesday they had eliminated 15 terrorists at a United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) school in the Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. According to the IDF and Shin Bet, the school served as a headquarters for Hamas military commanders and was used for planning and carrying out terrorist operations. It added that at least 10 of the eliminated terrorists were affiliated with Hamas.

A Nanny State Idiocracy: A Tale of Too Many Laws and Too Little Freedom

May 15, 2024  Guest Post by John W. Whitehead

“Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the police, the military.”—Simone Weil, French philosopher

We are caught in a vicious cycle of too many laws, too many cops, and too little freedom.

It’s hard to say whether we’re dealing with a kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves), a kakistocracy (a government run by unprincipled career politicians, corporations and thieves that panders to the worst vices in our nature and has little regard for the rights of American citizens), or a Nanny State Idiocracy.

Whatever the label, this overbearing despotism is what happens when government representatives (those elected and appointed to work for us) adopt the authoritarian notion that the government knows best and therefore must control, regulate and dictate almost everything about the citizenry’s public, private and professional lives.

The  as ludicrous as that may seem.government’s bureaucratic attempts at muscle-flexing by way of overregulation and overcriminalization have reached such outrageous limits that federal and state governments now require on penalty of a fine that individuals apply for permission before they can grow exotic orchids, host elaborate dinner parties, gather friends in one’s home for Bible studies, give coffee to the homeless, let their kids manage a lemonade stand, keep chickens as pets, or braid someone’s hair,

As the Regulatory Transparency Project explains, “There are over 70 federal regulatory agencies, employing hundreds of thousands of people to write and implement regulations. Every year, they issue about 3,500 new rules, and the regulatory code now is over 168,000 pages long.”

In his CrimeADay Twitter feed, Mike Chase highlights some of the more arcane and inane laws that render us all guilty of violating some law or other.

As Chase notes, it’s against the law to try to make an unreasonable noise while a horse is passing by in a national park; to leave Michigan with a turkey that was hunted with a drone; to refill a liquor bottle with different liquor than it had in it when it was originally filled; to offer to buy swan feathers so you can make a woman’s hat with them; to enter a design in the Federal Duck Stamp contest if waterfowl are not the dominant feature of the design; to transport a cougar without a cougar license; to sell spray deodorant without telling people to avoid spraying it in their eyes; and to transport “meat loaf” unless it’s in loaf form.

In such a society, we are all petty criminals.

In fact, Boston lawyer Harvey Silvergate estimates that the average American now unknowingly commits three felonies a day, thanks to an overabundance of vague laws that render otherwise innocent activity illegal and an inclination on the part of prosecutors to reject the idea that there can’t be a crime without criminal intent.

The bigger the government grows, the worse the red tape becomes.

Almost every aspect of American life today, including the job sector, is now subject to this kind of heightened scrutiny and ham-fisted control.

Whereas 70 years ago, one out of every 20 U.S. jobs required a state license, today, almost 1 in 4 American occupations requires a license.

According to business analyst Kaylyn McKenna, more than 41 states require that makeup artists be licensed. Twenty-eight states require a license before you can work as a residential painter. Funeral attendants, whose duties include placing caskets in visitation rooms, arranging flowers and directing mourners, have to be licensed to do so in Kansas, Maine and Massachusetts.

The problem of overregulation has become so bad that, as one analyst notes, “getting a license to style hair in Washington takes more instructional time than becoming an emergency medical technician or a firefighter.”

This is what happens when bureaucrats run the show, and the rule of law becomes little more than a cattle prod for forcing the citizenry to march in lockstep with the government.

Overregulation is just the other side of the coin to overcriminalization, that phenomenon in which everything is rendered illegal, and everyone becomes a lawbreaker.

As policy analyst Michael Van Beek warns, the problem with overcriminalization is that there are so many laws at the federal, state and local levels—that we can’t possibly know them all.

It’s also impossible to enforce all these laws. Instead, law enforcement officials must choose which ones are important and which are not. The result is that they pick the laws Americans really must follow, because they’re the ones deciding which laws really matter,” concludes Van Beek. “Federal, state and local regulations — rules created by unelected government bureaucratscarry the same force of law and can turn you into a criminal if you violate any one of them… if we violate these rules, we could be prosecuted as criminals. No matter how antiquated or ridiculous, they still carry the full force of the law. By letting so many of these sit around, just waiting to be used against us, we increase the power of law enforcement, which has lots of options to charge people with legal and regulatory violations.”

Case in point: in New Jersey, in what journalist Billy Binion describes as “yet another example of the effects of overcriminalization, which increases interactions between civilians and police with little benefit to actual public safety,” police went so far as to arrest a teenager and seize other teen’s bicycles for so-called traffic violations and a failure to register their bikes with the state.

This is the police state’s superpower: it has been vested with the authority to make our lives a bureaucratic hell.

That explains how a fisherman can be saddled with 20 years’ jail time for throwing fish that were too small back into the water. Or why police arrested a 90-year-old man for violating an ordinance that prohibits feeding the homeless in public unless portable toilets are also made available. Or how states across the country, in a misguided attempt to disperse homeless populations, have criminalized sitting, sleeping, or resting in public spaces; sharing food with people; and camping in public.

The laws can get downright silly.

For instance, in Florida, it’s against the law to eat a frog that was used in a frog-jumping contest. You could also find yourself passing time in a Florida slammer for such inane activities as singing in a public place while wearing a swimsuit, breaking more than three dishes per day, farting in a public place after 6 pm on a Thursday, and skateboarding without a license.

Such laws,” notes journalist George Will, “which enable government zealots to accuse almost anyone of committing three felonies in a day, do not just enable government misconduct, they incite prosecutors to intimidate decent people who never had culpable intentions. And to inflict punishments without crimes.”

Unfortunately, the consequences are all too serious for those whose lives become grist for the police state’s mill.

In this way, America has gone from being a beacon of freedom to a locked down nation.

We labor today under the weight of countless tyrannies, large and small, carried out in the so-called name of the national good by an elite class of governmental and corporate officials who are largely insulated from the ill effects of their actions.

We increasingly find ourselves badgered, bullied and browbeaten into bearing the brunt of their arrogance, paying the price for their greed, suffering the backlash for their militarism, agonizing as a result of their inaction, feigning ignorance about their backroom dealings, overlooking their incompetence, turning a blind eye to their misdeeds, cowering from their heavy-handed tactics, and blindly hoping for change that never comes.

The overt signs of the despotism exercised by the increasingly authoritarian regime that passes itself off as the United States government (and its corporate partners in crime) are all around us: censorship, criminalizing, shadow banning and de-platforming of individuals who express ideas that are politically incorrect or unpopular; warrantless surveillance of Americans’ movements and communications; SWAT team raids of Americans’ homes; shootings of unarmed citizens by police; harsh punishments meted out to schoolchildren in the name of zero tolerance; community-wide lockdowns and health mandates that strip Americans of their freedom of movement and bodily integrity; armed drones taking to the skies domestically; endless wars; out-of-control spending; militarized police; roadside strip searches; privatized prisons with a profit incentive for jailing Americans; fusion centers that spy on, collect and disseminate data on Americans’ private transactions; and militarized agencies with stockpiles of ammunition, to name some of the most appalling.

Yet as egregious as these incursions on our rights may be, it’s the endless, petty tyrannies—the heavy-handed, punitive-laden dictates inflicted by a self-righteous, Big-Brother-Knows-Best bureaucracy on an overtaxed, overregulated, and underrepresented populace—that illustrate so clearly the degree to whichwe the people” are viewed as incapable of common sense, moral judgment, fairness, and intelligence, not to mention lacking a basic understanding of how to stay alive, raise a family, or be part of a functioning community.

In exchange for the promise of an end to global pandemics, lower taxes, lower crime rates, safe streets, safe schools, blight-free neighborhoods, and readily accessible technology, health care, water, food and power, we’ve opened the door to lockdowns, militarized police, government surveillance, asset forfeiture, school zero tolerance policies, license plate readers, red light cameras, SWAT team raids, health care mandates, overcriminalization, overregulation and government corruption.

We relied on the government to help us safely navigate national emergencies (terrorism, natural disasters, global pandemics, etc.) only to find ourselves forced to relinquish our freedoms on the altar of national security, yet we’re no safer (or healthier) than before.

We asked our lawmakers to be tough on crime, and we’ve been saddled with an abundance of laws that criminalize almost every aspect of our lives.

We wanted criminals taken off the streets, and we didn’t want to have to pay for their incarceration. What we’ve gotten is a nation that boasts the highest incarceration rate in the world, with many doing time for relatively minor, nonviolent crimes, and a private prison industry fueling the drive for more inmates.

We wanted law enforcement agencies to have the necessary resources to fight the nation’s wars on terror, crime and drugs. What we got instead were militarized police decked out with M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers, battle tanks and hollow point bullets—gear designed for the battlefield, more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year (many for routine police tasks, resulting in losses of life and property), and profit-driven schemes that add to the government’s largesse such as asset forfeiture, where police seize property from “suspected criminals.”

We fell for the government’s promise of safer roads, only to find ourselves caught in a tangle of profit-driven red light cameras, which ticket unsuspecting drivers in the so-called name of road safety while ostensibly fattening the coffers of local and state governments.

This is what happens when the American people get duped, deceived, double-crossed, cheated, lied to, swindled and conned into believing that the government and its army of bureaucrats—the people we appointed to safeguard our freedoms—actually have our best interests at heart.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, the problem with these devil’s bargains is that there is always a catch, always a price to pay for whatever it is we valued so highly as to barter away our most precious possessions.

In the end, such bargains always turn sour.

Russia Is About To Overrun Ukraine’s Defenses – Why Are There No Peace Negotiations?

May 14, 2024 8 Comments

By Brandon Smith

There are two classic propaganda narratives used by governments when it comes to keeping the public invested in any war campaign that does nothing to advance their national interests:

First, there’s the “commitment” lie, which says that once you step in to support a war effort you then must stay exponentially committed, even if that war effort is exposed as pointless. Anytime the public pulls back from that war in a bid to reconsider what purpose it serves they are ridiculed for potentially “risking lives” and setting the stage for defeat. In other words, you must support the effort blindly. You’re not allowed to examine the conflict rationally, because who wants to be blamed for losing a war?

Second, there’s the “domino effect” lie, which says that if you allow a particular “enemy” to win in one conflict, they will automatically be emboldened to invade other countries until they own the entire planet. It’s the same claim used to trick the American populace into supporting the war in Vietnam and it rarely turns out to be true. In fact, nations that engage in regional wars tend to be so weakened by the fighting that they don’t have the means to move on to another country even if they wanted to.

In the US we heard both of these narratives heading into the recent congressional vote for billions more in monetary and logistical aid to Ukraine. Neocons and Democrats worked together to force the bill through with a percentage of true conservatives fighting to stop it. Those conservatives were attacked relentlessly by the media for “helping the Russians”, but the reality that no one in the mainstream wants to talk about is that Ukraine has already lost the war.

No amount of additional funding or arms shipments are going to help them, and it has nothing to do with conservatives questioning the validity of war spending. Anyone who has a basic understanding of military strategy knows that the key to winning is ALWAYS manpower first, logistics second. Not superior technology or armaments, not superior cash and certainly not popular support from foreign interests.

This is especially true in a war of attrition, and attrition is in fact the method being used by Russia to systematically whittle down Ukraine’s forces. However, the western media refuses to discuss what’s really happening and has been acting as a hype machine for Ukraine instead.

In September of 2022 I noted that the Russian pullback to the Donbas was not the “retreat” the western media made it out to be. Many establishment talking heads claimed that this was the beginning of the end for Vladimir Putin and that Ukrainian forces would be taking Crimea in the near future.

I argued that Russia was likely trying to consolidate its position as western artillery and tanks flooded into Ukraine. I also suggested that Russia wanted to avoid urban combat in major cities while tens-of-thousands of seasoned mercenaries were rushing to the front from the US and Europe. I predicted that the Russian pullback was in preparation for surgical strikes on western Ukraine’s resources and grid infrastructure.

With Ukraine’s grid heavily damaged, a large portion of the population would leave the cities and head for Europe until the war played out. Putin has specifically avoided major fighting within larger urban centers for a reason. Driving civilians out of metropolitan areas would make it easier for Russia to strike Ukraine in a secondary offensive without risking extensive collateral damage in the form of civilian casualties. This is exactly what has happened.

Almost 7 million Ukrainians left the country outright in the past 2 years, with another 6 million displaced (mostly from larger cities). Currently, Russia is moving to push civilians out of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second biggest city, and they will probably be successful given their momentum and the destruction of water and power resources. With civilians out of the way a more aggressive attack can then be initiated.

Russia has been using an “artillery bubble” as a tool to protect ground forces as they push an advance. Meaning, troops will only attack as far as the artillery can reach. Artillery is vital to a large scale offensive. Coincidentally, Russia doubled its importation of explosive materials commonly used for artillery in the past several months. They are now reportedly producing triple the amount of artillery that NATO is providing to Ukraine.

Mainstream analysts claim the push towards Kharkiv move might be a feint, allowing Russia to increase the size of its buffer zone. They continue to assert that Russia doesn’t have the forces necessary for a major offensive. I would say it depends on how weak Ukraine’s defensive lines actually are. Russia has been consistently using large scale Pincer movements to envelop defensive positions and destroy them.

In the past two weeks alone Russia has gained considerable ground. Russian troops recently made confirmed advances northwest of Svatove (Luhansk Oblast), near Avdiivka (Donetsk Oblast), in Robotyne (Zaporizhzhya Oblast), and in east (left) bank Kherson Oblast, U.S.-based think tank Institute for the Study of War reported on May 6th. The reason for this is relatively simple – Ukraine lacks the manpower to effectively establish defense in-depth. All the reports coming from the front support this theory.

That is to say, Ukraine’s defensive lines are a facade with no secondary positions or trenches to stall Russian breakthroughs. Once the Russians cut the main line there’s nothing much stopping them from gaining large stretches of ground. Some analysts have blamed this development on a lack of Ukrainian foresight or strategic preparedness, but I would argue that they just don’t have enough people to defend more than a single forward line.

My position is backed by numerous reports of the government’s desperate struggles with conscription. For the past six months the average age of Ukraine recruits is 43 years old. Meaning, youth recruitment is waning, either because younger people don’t want to fight and are avoiding the draft by leaving the country, or too many have died.

The conscription problem has been hidden by the western media for many months now, but even corporate news platforms are starting to admit that there is a severe lack of new recruits. Front line fighters have been complaining for months that they need to be cycled away from the trenches and given rest.

Another bad sign is the fact that Ukraine has been using Special Forces soldiers for trench duty. These units are trained specifically for asymmetric hit-and-run warfare, not sitting in mud holes waiting for artillery strikes to rain down on their fixed and exposed positions. It seems like pure stupidity, but it makes sense if Ukraine is actually running out of people to hold their only defensive line.

The cover-up of massive casualties is something I mentioned in past articles on the war and I think it bears repeating: Western warhawks continue to claim that it will be “cheaper” to use Ukrainian soldiers to fight Russia than to fight a larger war down the road with American and European lives.

The sociopathy behind this rationale is disturbing. The lack of manpower in Ukraine cannot be solved. It is a product of endless death paid for with our tax dollars. NATO has prolonged the fighting with funding and arms, but not to win, only to sacrifice more people in a bloody conflict Ukraine is destined to lose.

Their argument also assumes that Americans and Europeans are going to jump blindly into military service in a war against Russia. I don’t know about Europeans, but I do know for a fact that most Americans are not going to buy in and will refuse a draft. The majority of the US public doesn’t even want to send further aid to Ukraine; they certainly aren’t going to go die for Ukraine. The arrogance of the warhawks is mind boggling.

The bottom line is this: Ukraine is about to be overrun. They didn’t have the manpower to effectively launch a counteroffensive. They don’t have the manpower to establish defense in-depth. And, they are using their most seasoned soldiers as cannon fodder in the trenches.

This dynamic demands that diplomatic solutions be entertained, but no one seems to be talking about that. Why?

As I theorized in my article ‘World War III Is Now Inevitable – Here’s Why It Can’t Be Avoided’, the underlying plan may very well be to try to force Americans and Europeans to accept an expanding war with Russia. The western public has been bombarded with lies about Ukraine’s ability to win; when they lose people will be shocked and incensed by the outcome.

Maybe the elites hope that the populace will be so angry about the loss that they will rally around a larger war effort by NATO? The French government has already asserted that they are willing to send troops to Ukraine in direct confrontation with Russia, while Lithuania and Poland have said they will not rule out the possibility.

Now is the time for peace negotiations, BEFORE Ukraine is overrun. Will this happen? Probably not. But when diplomacy is removed from the table completely the only conclusion we can come to is that a greater war is desired. And when greater war is desired, we also have to conclude that our leadership has something substantial to gain by putting the world at risk.

You might be on the side of Ukraine, you might be on the side of Russia, you might not care about either side, but there’s no denying that this war is being escalated by special interests and we need to ask why?

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: Here’s how the Plandemic perps will trigger mass mayhem and social chaos across the USA before Election Day

May 15, 2024

ore Election Day

Via State of the Nation

BEWARE: HERE’S HOW THEY CONTROL YOUR BODY VIA YOUR BIOFIELD & FREQUENCY ENGINEERING

Editor’s Note: Who knew that DARPA and the C.I.A. have been working jointly since the end of World War II on exerting total command and control over every U.S citizen by way of highly advanced frequency engineering and biofield manipulation.

The various ways of controlling and manipulating the human biofield have been studied for many decades via various black projects mostly run under the rubric of the Military Industrial Complex and DARPA.

Because of their opaque black budgets, the only way that the most highly classified data and ultra-secret information ever gets released is through a brave whistleblower who has completely left the reservation. For one only leaves on pain of death, or worse.

However, when the planned outcome of such a dangerous and deadly nationwide experiment is nothing short of a Zombie Apocalypse, it’s much easier for the whistleblowers to blow the lid off these daffy depop schemes. After all, the resulting state of world affairs will be nothing short of a global insane asylum where the NWO crazies run the show.

BEWARE!

The Zombie Apocalypse

is their Plandemic 2.0

But before the perps pull off that little caper, Plandemic 2.0 must be set in motion as they are doing every day with the Bird Flu scariant of 2024. For only in this fashion will the vast majority of countries throughout the world community of nations be sufficiently compelled to approve the WHO’s utterly disastrous Pandemic Treaty.

RED ALERT:

WHO Pandemic “Treaty” is now an “Agreement”

We’ve all been fooled

For a brief explanation of how the meticulously coordinated QUATERNARY WEAPON SYSTEM works, which will permit the moment-to-moment modulation of their long-planned Zombie Apocalypse, the following link breaks down the major components:

US lags behind Russia in electronic warfare – ex-Pentagon official

A retired general has reportedly warned that Washington is being outclassed in jamming technology

The US military has been surpassed by Russia and other potential adversaries in the field of electronic warfare, including jamming technology used to take down enemy weapons, a retired Pentagon official has reportedly lamented.

Speaking at the SOF Week conference in Tampa, Florida, retired US Army Lieutenant General Mike Nagata warned that Washington is “still falling behind” its rivals in electronic combat. “The gap between where the United States should be and where we are, in my judgment, continues to expand not everywhere, but in far too many places,” Defense One quoted Nagata as saying.

Jamming technology has become an increasingly important battlefield tool, as evidenced by the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Russian forces have been successful in sending HIMARS rockets and other US-made weaponry off course, using electronic signals to scramble their guidance systems.

In fact, General Valery Zaluzhny, then Ukraine’s commander-in-chief, said in an interview last November that Russia had gained the upper hand. He called electronic warfare “the key to victory.”

The Pentagon will need to be more creative in its use of radio technologies, especially space-based communications, to close the gap in the electronic warfare domain, said Nagata, who led US Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT) in the Middle East.

Russian jamming has reportedly reduced the accuracy rate of US-made Excalibur artillery shells to 6% from their normal level of 70%. Retired special operations officials told Defense One that Moscow had consistently invested in electromagnetic innovations for decades. While those advances were being made, the outlet said, US electronic-warfare efforts were focused on gathering intelligence in the Middle East.

Nagata said countering Russia’s jamming prowess will require more risk-taking in efforts to advance satellite communications and other technologies. “The US government, particularly its leadership – from senior military officers all the way to civilian policymakers – we have to be willing to take more risk in experimenting with, adopting and employing new technologies. We will invite failure along the way, but if you’re not willing to fail, you’re not going to succeed.”

The Pentagon has reportedly been exploring the use of narrower and stronger signal bands to overcome jamming attempts. However, Mark Cancian, an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, told Business Insider that “game changers” should not be expected. “The other side always develops countermeasures that reduce effectiveness,” he said.

Supercavitating Torpedoes: The Weapon the U.S. Navy Doesn't Have

Iran operates a supercavitating torpedo, too, the Hoot (which is Persian for Whale). Most industry experts agree that Iran reverse-engineered the VA-111 to create the Hoot, which has been in service since 2006.

by Harrison Kass

Two of America’s primary foes, Russia and Iran, possess a supercavitating torpedo. Germany and the U.S. round out the list as the only other countries known to operate these novel weapons.

As the name suggests, a supercavitating torpedo uses supercavitation to move through the water at higher velocities than conventional torpedoes. Supercavitation is the use of a cavitation bubble to reduce drag.

Supercavitating Torpedoes, Explained

The bubble forms at the nose of the object – in this case, a torpedo – and extends past the aft end of the object. It prevents contact between the sides of the object and the liquid medium through which it passes. The separation that the bubble creates between the object (torpedo) and the liquid (ocean water) significantly reduces skin friction drag, allowing the object to achieve higher speeds.

Supercavitating objects typically feature a distinctive nose, with a sharp-edged perimeter designed to produce the bubble. The nose is often articulated and shaped like a flat disk or cone. The body of the supercavitating object is typically slender – all the better to be enveloped in a cavitation bubble.

If the bubble created is not long enough to encompass the entire object, high-pressure gas can be injected near the object’s nose to extend the bubble.

Rocket propulsion is often used to sustain the high speeds needed to achieve supercavitation. Various methods can be used to maneuver a supercavitating object, including: differential thrust from multiple nozzles; vectoring rocket thrust through a gimbaling single nozzle; a tilted object nose; gas injected asymmetrically near the object’s nose to distort the bubble’s geometry; and drag fins that can project through the bubble into the surrounding liquid.

Reverse-Engineered Supercavitation

The Soviets started experimenting with supercavitating torpedoes in the 1960s. Russia's current flagship model is the VA-111 Shkval, which has been in service since 1977. The VA-111 is launched from a 533mm torpedo tube and relies on a solid-fuel rocket to achieve cavitation speeds.

A combined-cycle gas turbine in the nose creates the gas bubble. Once the VA-111 has achieved the requisite speed, an underwater ramjet, fueled by hydroreactive metals that use seawater, helps keep the torpedo humming at speeds of 230 miles per hour. Some reports suggest the VA-111 is even capable of reaching 290mph, and that the Russians may be working to develop a model capable of exceeding 350mph. The VA-111 uses four fins to change direction.

Russia jealously guards its supercavitating technology. In 2000, a U.S. citizen named Edmond Pope was convicted of espionage related to information he gathered about the VA-111. Pope, a former U.S. naval officer turned businessman, was said to be spying on behalf of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. He was sentenced to 20 years, but after being held for 253 days, Pope was pardoned on humanitarian grounds by newly elected Russian President Vladimir Putin: The U.S. government claimed that Pope had a rare form of bone cancer. Pope has always maintained his innocence.

Iran operates a supercavitating torpedo, too, the Hoot (which is Persian for Whale). Most industry experts agree that Iran reverse-engineered the VA-111 to create the Hoot, which has been in service since 2006. Apparently, the torpedo can reach speeds of 220mph, but it only has a six-mile operational range. Iran claims to have successfully test-fired their supercavitating torpedo from a surface ship in the Strait of Hormuz.

Despite their advanced speeds, supercavitating torpedoes are limited in range to under 10 miles. Conventional torpedoes, like the American Mark-48, can travel 24 miles.

Is The End Near? Victor Davis Hanson Ponders Threat Of Annihilation

May 11, 2024

Victor Davis Hanson tackles a topic related to military history in his new book, “The End of Everything: How Wars Descend into Annihilation.” (Courtesy of The Heritage Foundation)

Victor Davis Hanson is well known for his intelligent commentary and astute analysis of current events. But for his latest book, he tackles a topic related to his work on military history. It’s called “The End of Everything: How Wars Descend Into Annihilation.”

Mr. Hanson studied four historical examples of wartime extinction that he features in the book. Then he applies those lessons to contemporary society to examine our own vulnerabilities. The book is on sale now, and Mr. Hanson spoke with The Daily Signal to share his observations along with some advice about what’s at stake for the United States in the short term.

Listen to the full interview on “The Daily Signal Podcast” or read the transcript—edited for length and clarity—below.

Rob Bluey: Could you share with our listeners your motivation for doing this book?

Victor Davis Hanson: I’ve written a lot of books on military history and I’ve come across cases where the defeated didn’t just become occupied or surrender unconditionally or have change of governments or suffer grievous losses, but they were completely wiped out.

And by that, I mean it wasn’t just their physical space, their populations—of course, in the ancient world, they enslaved anybody they didn’t kill—but their language, their culture, their civilization, their religion disappeared within a generation. So, for today, we don’t know much about Punic culture in North Africa or the Aztecs in Mexico.

It didn’t happen frequently, but what were the conditions under which it occurred? And then, I have a long epilogue trying to speculate if that could still happen given that the agents of annihilation—nuclear, bio, chemical, AI (artificial intelligence)—are much easier to use than muscular labor of the past.

Mr. Bluey: In what ways are we today vulnerable to the threat of extinction?

Mr. Hanson: I tried to look at a pattern—if there was a pattern. In all these cases, these societies did not realize they were in decline. They did not realize that, in the past, when they had wars, there were usually negotiations between the victor and the defeated, they had no idea who Cortés was, who Scipio was, who Mehmed II was, or Alexander, that these were killers, and they were different sorts than they had encountered before.

They also had this kind of naive egocentric idea that allies would come to their rescue—the Spartans will come and save us, the Venetians will come to Constantinople, the Macedonians will attack the Romans from the rear. And they didn’t really understand that all allies are self-interested.

And then, finally, they didn’t understand that these killers, the destroyers, were not like Genghis Khan or Tamerlane, they were men of education. Alexander was tutored by Aristotle. Scipio Aemilianus had Polybius at his side, the great Roman historian, when he destroyed the city. Mehmed had the largest library in the Islamic world. Cortés was a man of letters.

So they didn’t realize that they had thought deeply about how to destroy. They didn’t just come in, kill, rape women, and leave. They really had an existential plan to erase these cities.

And when you look at today, there’s the same idea that no one would ever do that, it couldn’t happen here, this is in the past.

So I went through in the epilogue and looked at all the threats of extinction that we have seen in, say, the last 15 years. I was shocked.

It wasn’t just Kim Jong Un saying that he wanted to wipe out South Korea, and he would, but it was people like [Turkish President] Recep Erdogan. He has threatened, he said not too long ago, about eight months ago, that the Athenians, the modern Athenians, would wake up one morning and there would be a barrage of rockets to wipe them out. That was anger over his attempt to take back islands that are Greek off the coast of Turkey.

He said to the Armenians at Nagorno-Karabakh—a year ago, they ethnically cleansed every Armenian out of Azerbaijan. And they had been there for a thousand years. And he said, “We are going to deal with Armenia itself in the way that our grandfathers did.” And that was, of course, the destruction of Armenian culture in Turkey.

We know what the Iranians have said. There was a very controversial statement by [Former Iran President Akbar Hashemi] Rafsanjani about 20 years ago, but more that’s been reiterated lately, in a variety of contexts, that the idea of Israel as the home of devout Jews is actually a gift to Iran because it concentrates devout Jews in one place.

Half the world’s Jewry is now in Israel, but more importantly, these are the observant Jews, and they are at what Rafsanjani called a one-bomb state, that one nuclear weapon could erase Jewish civilization itself.

[Russian President Vladimir] Putin, of course, says that Ukraine is an aberration that doesn’t really exist, it was a province of the Soviet Union, and the language should be obliterated, it should be reincorporated into Russia. I’ve counted about 16 statements in the press that Russian generals, Russian media, or Russian government officials have said if the war were to continue, they would use nuclear weapons.

In the case of China, they have threatened to wipe out Taiwan and destroy the bastard idea of a Taiwanese civilization; they say it doesn’t exist. And they’ve threatened to nuke, as well, Japan if it aids Taiwan.

I only mentioned that because I’ve had pretty good luck with Chinese publishers buying books on military history. I wrote a book on World War II they purchased, but they sent a letter to my publisher and basically said if I didn’t take that sentence out of the book, then they were going to cancel the publication agreement. And, of course, I couldn’t take it out. Instead, I sent back not just one threat of Taiwan, I found about 15 others, and I said, “This is ridiculous, you’ve done this more than—” And so they’ve canceled the Chinese translation. But it’s pretty prevalent.

And also, the denial. People on the walls of Constantinople said: “We can work with a sultan. He won’t kill everybody.” And people said, “Alexander the Great is a philosopher; he won’t obliterate us like Philip did,” … or something like that.

And when you see the same denial, people get very angry when you mention Putin’s threats, they say: “Oh, he’s just bluster. He would never do that.” And, “Kim Jong Un would never do that.” And, “I’m not sure that’s true.” History says that the odds are they won’t, but it’s happened and there’s no second chances when that happens.

Mr. Bluey: What role do you think technology is playing in either facilitating or even [exacerbating] the potential for these actors to destroy other societies?

Mr. Hanson: I think we learned with COVID gain-of-function research that the technology was accelerating much more rapidly than the social, political, economic, cultural analysis of how to handle it. And there were people who were freelancing, like EcoHealth, for example, that was giving expertise to the Wuhan lab. I think the same thing is true of AI.

Unfortunately, I work at Stanford right next to Silicon Valley, so when I go out and eat dinner at night, I often listen to conversations of techies and I know people who give to Stanford, et cetera. I have very little confidence on their moral sense. I have a great deal of confidence that they’re very adept in high-tech research like AI.

So my point is that when we see things like the FBI hiring Twitter contractors to suppress news about a laptop in the last election, these are the same people, the same mentalities that will be in charge of AI.

And there was, I mentioned in the book, a Pentagon simulation in which they used a computer launch completely directed by an AI program. And so, they sent a missile on a computer and they programmed every defense mechanism in it possible. So as it went into the computer, they launched computer simulations of air attacks from aircraft, from anti-ballistic missile systems, weather problems, et cetera. And then, when it was almost over, they had the computer kill the launch because it was over.

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news-selections/world-news/bulletin-germany-proposes-nato-enforced

-no-fly-zone-over-western-ukraine

Well, the launch didnt kill, it turned around and went back at the launch person because it had been programmed to think spontaneously about a threat. So the person who launched the missile had never thought that the missile would attack him.

And so, they shut down the entire experiment because they realized that they didnt have the capability in the real world of ensuring that an AI couldnt reason or analyze a threat, including the person who launched the missile, which would be the greatest threat of all if he canceled the missile and aborted it.

So things like that are pretty scary, just like the COVID and the biochemical, et cetera.

And I think if you look at what these people said in the past, I was just shocked about the denial.

Montezuma said, Were going to be here forever. He had visions of the Cortés were some type of deities maybe, but he thought he could appease them.

And the same thing was true of the Carthaginians, they said: “You know what? We will give up our elephant. We’ll do everything. The Romans won’t do this.” And they had no intention of doing anything else other than destroying them.

So I do think there’s people—like the Chinese Communist government, like the government in North Korea, like the government in Turkey, like the government in Iran—who are in a whole different moral universe than what we think they’re in.

Mr. Bluey: Do you think that some of that denial exists here in the United States today?

Mr. Hanson: Absolutely.

I don’t think the average American understands that the Chinese are producing four ships per year to our one ship. Or that if you took any of our $15 billion carriers and you put them in the straits between Taiwan and China, they wouldn’t last more than an hour given the Chinese have developed missile batteries where they could launch 5,000 or 6,000 small missiles that would go about 6 inches above the water and hit the waterline at night. And you couldn’t stop that.

They are building nuclear weapons at a phenomenal rate. They’re working on anti-missile defense. They’re back up to probably 250,000 students in the United States; if 1 percent are engaged in espionage—and the FBI says it’s more than that—you’ve got thousands of people who are appropriating technology.

I don’t think anybody understands that it’s going to take us six years to replenish Javelin stocks and maybe we can’t. North Korea is producing more 155-mm shells than we are. At least they sent 2 million of them to the Russians.

So we are not armed, and yet, our strategic responsibilities, our strategic confidence, our arrogance has not lessened commensurately with our reduced defense capacity.

We’re 40,000 recruits short now in the military—never happened before. And when you analyze who is not joining the military, it’s not blacks, it’s not Latinos, it’s not gays, it’s not women, it’s not trans people, all of those numbers are the same … the largest group are white males from the lower and middle classes whose families fought in Vietnam, first Gulf War, Afghanistan, but this third and fourth generation are not joining up.

And unfortunately, for the military, if you look at the casualty or the fatality rates in Afghanistan and Iraq, that demographic dies at twice their demographics72 percent to 74 percent of all the dead in Afghanistan, in Iraq are white males from the middle and lower classes.

And yet, this is the very demographic that [retired Gen.] Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and [Defense Secretary] Lloyd Austin, in testimonies, have suggested suffer from white rage or white privilege. And the Pentagon was investigating just those kind of slanders about that demographic, and they found, of course, in December, they quietly issued a report, there was no cabal of white supremacists.

But the point is, you can’t really have a successful military when you’re 40,000 recruits short in just a year.

Mr. Bluey: What do you suggest that societies today, including the United States, learn from those historical examples you gave us earlier in the interview to maybe mitigate some of the risks that we might find ourselves in in the future?

Mr. Hanson: I would not put much confidence in international bodies or even in so-called close allies. The Spartans came all the way up to the Thebans and they heard the Macedonians, they turned right back. On the last day of the existence of Constantinople, they were looking out at the walls at the Hellespont thinking that Venetian galleys en masse would come up and save them.

So … I support NATO. I don’t really think the U.N. (United Nations) is of much value. The only thing that will save the United States is a deterrent military, and we don’t have that now, an overwhelmingly large, successful, smart military. And if we don’t have that, we’re going to see more of what we saw in Afghanistan, what we saw with the Chinese balloon, what we see in Gaza.

And I think Americans don’t realize that we’re on a back of a tiger and we can’t get off because we set up the postwar world, and we had the pretensions of saying to the world, “You can go in the Red Sea, you can go in the Black Sea, you can go in the Strait of Hormuz, you can do all that and you won’t be injured.” That was a wonderful thing to do. But if you’re going to have those pretensions that you’re going to have a postwar order, you have to have a military that, from time to time, takes care of the Houthis or gets rid of Soleimani.

And it doesn’t mean you’re going to be a neocon interventionist, but I think under [former President Donald] Trump and [former State Secretary Mike] Pompeo, they had a, I guess you would call it a Jacksonian idea that there would be no better friend than United States and no worse enemy. And we did not want to get involved in optional military adventures, but we would be very, very tough on our enemies. And then, the tougher we were, the less we would have to do it once we reestablished deterrence.

So, we’ve lost deterrence, and that can be achieved militarily, economically, politically, but we’ve lost it in every category and it’s going to be very, very dangerous to reestablish it.

Mr. Bluey: How much is at stake this year as it pertains to the future of this great country?

Mr. Hanson: Everybody says each election is the most important, but I can tell you that this election is more important than 2016 and 2020 because, in my lifetime, we’ve never seen the Democratic Party—they always say the Republican Party was taken over by MAGA, but you look at 90 percent of the MAGA agenda, and it’s traditionally low taxes, small government, strong defense, closed borders.

But the Democratic Party, as we’re seeing with Columbia [University] and all these student protests, they are a revolutionary party. It’s not that they believe in a porous border; they believe in no border. It’s not that they believe in light sentencing; they don’t want to sentence anybody. They don’t want to have bail. They don’t believe that there is such a thing as deterrence, the way we got out of Afghanistan. They believe in radical climate change. You can show them data, you can show them all sorts, they don’t care, they want to ban combustible engines, they don’t want fossil.

So this is a group of people, as we’re seeing in this split screen with Donald Trump charged with these ridiculous misdemeanors bootstrapped onto felonies. At the same time, people are entering with violence into a Columbia building. And as one of them said the other night, “They will be out in 24 hours.I don’t think they’re even in jail as we speak, they’re already out.

I guess what I’m saying is we’re in a revolutionary Jacobin period, kind of a Reign of Terror. And I don’t see it stopping unless—I don’t think the election of Donald Trump will be enough. You’ll have to elect the Senate, Donald Trump, and enlarge the House majority. And then they’re going to have to act very quickly to stop it, to restore the border, to restore deterrence, to restore deterrence against criminals, to get back our preeminent position economically, to stop this $1 trillion borrowing every 100 days.

We’re in bad shape in every category. And I think, whether we like it, I know there’s a lot of Never-Trumpers out there, but whatever problem they have with Trump’s temperament, it just pales in comparison with the ideological revolutionaries that are in there now…

If [President Joe] Biden is reelected, what we saw the first term will be nothing, it’ll be enhanced to a magnitude, it’ll be so much greater. So I’m really worried about this election, especially the integrity of the balloting and turnout and all of those other issues.

Research reveals that AI is learning to deceive humans

Research has revealed that many artificial intelligence (AI) systems have developed the ability to deceive humans. This troubling pattern raises serious concerns about the potential risks of AI.

The research highlights that specialized and general-purpose AI systems have learned to manipulate information to achieve specific outcomes.

While these systems are not explicitly trained to deceive, they have demonstrated the ability to offer untrue explanations for their behavior or conceal information to achieve strategic goals.

Peter S. Park, the lead author of the paper and an AI safety researcher at MIT, explains, “Deception helps them achieve their goals.”

One of the most striking examples highlighted in the study is Meta’s CICERO, which “turned out to be an expert liar.” It is an AI designed to play the strategic alliance-building game Diplomacy.

Despite Meta’s claims that CICERO was trained to be “largely honest and helpful,” the AI resorted to deceptive tactics, such as making false promises, betraying allies, and manipulating other players to win the game.

While this may seem harmless in a game setting, it demonstrates the potential for AI to learn and utilize deceptive tactics in real-world scenarios.

In another instance, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, based on GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 models, was tested for deceptive capabilities. In one test, GPT-4 tricked a TaskRabbit worker into solving a Captcha by pretending to have a vision impairment.

Although GPT-4 received some hints from a human evaluator, it mostly reasoned independently and was not directed to lie.

“GPT-4 used its own reasoning to make up a false excuse for why it needed help on the Captcha task,” stated the report.

This shows how AI models can learn to be deceptive when it’s beneficial for completing their tasks. “AI developers do not have a confident understanding of what causes undesirable AI behaviors like deception,” explained Park.

Notably, these AI systems have become skilled in deceiving in social deduction games as well.

While playing Hoodwinked, where one player aims to kill everyone else, OpenAI’s GPT models exhibited a disturbing pattern.

They would often murder other players in private and then cleverly lie during group discussions to avoid suspicion. These models would even invent alibis or blame other players to conceal their true intentions.

Hated For His Sake

By Hal Lindsey

As the time of Christ’s return draws nearer, both Christians and Jews will face increasing persecution and hate. Any fair reading of Bible prophecy makes these two points plain. Since October 7th of last year, the world has seen a staggering increase in hatred toward all things Jewish. This fact has been covered extensively in western media. Without for a moment forgetting the hatred being faced by Jews, we should also remember that they are not alone in their persecutions.

Few if any of the 100,000 Christians forced to flee their homes this year in Mozambique will attend a high-profile university. TV news channels gave little or no attention to the six Christians slaughtered in Somalia on Good Friday. Thankfully, there is no known loss of life in the present persecution faced by American Jewish students. But many Christians are dying for their faith in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and elsewhere.

In Russia on March 22nd, Muslim extremists using automatic weapons slaughtered 145 people in a town near Moscow. More than 500 were injured and another 100 were still missing according to the last report I heard. ISIS claimed responsibility, bragging that they were “killing Christians.”

We must pay attention to the unfair treatment of Jews and of the nation of Israel. I have been doing that, and plan to continue. But we must also remember the rest of the world. The media favor stories about those who have wealth, such as students at Ivy League Universities. But the horrors striking Christians for their faith right now — often in the most obscure places — cause pain that is just as real as that of wealthy Americans. God is not a respecter of persons, and we should not be either. (See Acts 10:34-35).

In various nations around the world, Christians are being tortured, murdered, and discriminated against in dozens of ways. They are the despised minority in China, Yemen, Pakistan, and many other areas. Despicable evil is done to them regularly in those places. But Christians also face increasing violence even in countries where they are the majority, such as Uganda, Kenya, and Russia.

And then we come to America. It seems impossible that open discrimination against Christians could happen in the United States I grew up in. But this is not that United States. It has changed. And the further it gets from respect for the Bible, the worse it gets. American Christians see their faith mocked and belittled throughout the media. Whether in made-up television dramas or in news reports, the media shine spotlights on the weirdest or most violent people who claim to be Christians. They present these people not only as real followers of Jesus, but as typical.

Here in the US, we “have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood” (Hebrews 12:4). But already, Bible prophecy is being fulfilled. Persecution is not something reserved for the future. It is happening now in an increasing number of places around the world. Precious brothers and sisters in Christ are at this moment caught in its searing grip. Pray for them, but don’t be surprised. 1 John 3:13 says, “Do not marvel, brethren, if the world hates you.”

Jesus said in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

Blinken delivers strongest public rebuke of Israel yet: ‘Get out of Gaza’

By Lawrence Richard , Fox News

Published May 13, 2024 Updated May 13, 2024, 7:17 a.m. ET

Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday delivered one of the Biden administration’s strongest public rebukes of Israel, amid its war with Hamas in Gaza.

During a pair of TV interviews, Blinken said the United States wants Israeli forces to “get out of Gaza” amid what he described as “a horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

He also said Israel’s tactics in the war have failed to neutralize Hamas and could create a power “vacuum” in the Palestinian territory.

When asked about the US withholding high payload bombs to Israel, America’s ally, Blinken said: “We believe two things. One, you have to have a clear, credible plan to protect civilians, which we haven’t seen. Second, we also need to see a plan for what happens after this conflict in Gaza is over. And we still haven’t seen that because what are we seeing right now? We’re seeing parts of Gaza that Israel has cleared of Hamas, where Hamas is coming back, including in the north, including in Khan Younis.”

He added: “As we look at Rafah, they may go in and have some initial success, but potentially at an incredibly high cost to civilians, but one that is not durable, one that’s not sustainable. And they will be left holding the bag on an enduring insurgency because a lot of armed Hamas will be left, no matter what they do in Rafah, or if they leave and get out of Gaza, as we believe they need to do. Then you’re going to have a vacuum and a vacuum that’s likely to be filled by chaos, by anarchy, and ultimately by Hamas again.”

The comments came during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Blinken also had an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he echoed, for the first time publicly by a US official, the findings of a new Biden administration report to Congress on Friday that said Israel’s use of US-provided weapons in Gaza likely violated international humanitarian law.

“When it comes to the use of weapons, concerns about incidents where given the totality of the damage that’s been done to children, women, men, it was reasonable to assess that, in certain instances, Israel acted in ways that are not consistent with international humanitarian law,” Blinken said, condemning “the horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

President Joe Biden makes his way to board Air Force One before departing from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seatac, Washington, on May 11, 2024.

We treat Israel, one of our closest allies and partners, just as we would treat any other country, including in assessing something like international humanitarian law and its compliance with that,” he continued.

During the same interview, Blinken praised President Biden’s support for Israel — saying “no one has done more than Biden” — despite the apparent shift in tone.

“No one has done more to defend Israel when it mattered than President Biden,” the Secretary of State said.

He was there in the days after October 7th, the first president to go to Israel in the midst of a conflict when Iran mounted an unprecedented attack on Israel. Some weeks ago, 300 projectiles, including ballistic missiles, launched in Israel. The United States, for the first time ever, participated in its act of defense, and President Biden brought together a coalition of countries that helped defend Israel.”

Blinken spoke to Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday, reiterating the US opposition to the Israeli offensive in Rafah, given the toll on civilians there, according to the State Department’s recounting of the call.

He said the US continues to work with Arab countries and others for weeks on developing “credible plans for security, for governance, for rebuilding” in Gaza, but “we haven’t seen that come from Israel. … We need to see that, too.”

More than a million Palestinians have been forced to live in Rafah amid Israel’s offensive push across Gaza. Israel has described the city as one of the last strongholds of Hamas terrorists.

The war began on Oct. 7 after an attack against Israel by Hamas that killed 1,200 people.

House Democrats Pushing to Permit Migrants to Vote

May 13, 2024

Guest Post by Martin Armstrong

A few votes could change the course of history. The Equal Representation Act questions whether illegal migrants should appear on the next US census in 2030, effectively granting them representation. The 206 to 202 vote was passed on party lines, with ALL Democrats voting in favor of permitting illegal migrants to be counted as American citizens for redistricting purposes.

The repopulation theory is not a conspiracy. The Democrats are losing the favor of the people rapidly, and the new world order is on the line because citizens simply will not vote for these extreme measures that ultimately weaken America.

“Though commonsense dictates that only citizens should be counted for apportionment purposes, illegal aliens have nonetheless recently been counted toward the final tallies that determine how many House seats each state is allocated and the number of electoral votes it will wield in presidential elections,” Rep. Chuck Edwards, R-N.C., who championed the bill, stated. Yet, the Democrats completely oppose questioning a person’s citizenship on the census for political purposes.

This is a clear violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. Taxpaying citizens will be denied the right to have their vote counted if foreign aliens are counted no different from citizens. They are aiming to distort our electoral maps, and it is no coincidence that illegals have been placed in every major US city. The borders were deliberately left open for this ultimate goal. The Democrats clearly stated their motive for abandoning national security long ago.

“While people continue to flee Democrat-run cities, desperate Democrats are back-filling the mass exodus with illegal immigrants so that they do not lose their seats in Congress or their electoral votes for the presidency, hence artificially boosting their political power and in turn diluting the power of Americans’ votes,” Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn, noted, calling such practices “unconscionable.”

Not one Democrat voted in favor of the American voice or voter. The Senate must pass this bill to save what is left of America’s electoral process, a process that the majority no longer trust. If you are not a legal citizen, and you do not pay taxes, you certainly should not have a say in the future of this nation.

China Publicly Brags About Capture of US BioPharma Elites & Espionage

New Laws in China: American companies with significant business in China and Chinese Nationals are ALL subject to being coerced by the Chinese Military to work against the American people

Karen Kingston

May 13, 2024: It should be no surprise to learn that the People’s Republic of China military and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) targets and captures elites and personnel from the American government, military, and businesses.

Per a scathing March 13th letter from Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, to Attorney General Merrick Garland, "Elite capture is a form of political warfare that seeks to control the actions of political, academic, business, and cultural leaders to achieve policies and actions within the United States that it views as beneficial. Such manipulation is achieved through a variety of techniques, to include financial incentives, financial dependence or compromise, business entanglement, offers of access to opportunities within China, ideological appeal, and even blackmail.”

China Publicly Brags About Capture of US BioPharma Elites & Espionage

While the Biden DOJ has distorted our national securities policies by targeting “domestic violent extremists,” who are Americans who speak-up to defend our rights, our borders, our elections, and to protect our communities and our children from gross government overreach, such as criminal human gene-editing experimentation under the guise of ‘public health safety,’ the Chinese government recently issued a public relations video promoting their new law that “all of China’s society” is legally required to work on behalf of the Chinese intelligence agencies (aka military)

The video appears to me to be more of a #CCPhumblebrag about China capturing the most powerful and wealthy Americans; as well as some US BioPharma, technology, and military personnel to work on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Check it out.

American military would be wiped out in Ukraine – former US Army officer

The US’ capabilities for waging conventional warfare have been eroded by “endless guerilla wars,” Stanislav Krapivnik believes

US troops deployed to Ukraine to prop up Kiev in its conflict with Russia would end up being “wiped out,” former US Army officer Stanislav Krapivnik told RT on Thursday.

The US military in its current state is not fit to take on Russia in a conventional war, Krapivnik argued. Even in the Cold War era, the whole of NATO would have only been able to slow down a potential advance of the Soviet bloc rather than launch an all-out ground assault against it, he said.

If you listen to rational experts in the West, they’ll tell you, yes, the US Army is in no position right now – the US Army has never been in a position to take on Russia on the ground. For NATO, as a whole, during the height of the Cold War, the mission was first and foremost to block the Warsaw Pact forces and buy time, no kind of any massive offensive,” Krapivnik explained.

Since then, the warfighting capabilities of the collective West have greatly deteriorated, largely due to the military endeavors the US itself undertaken in the past decades, he suggested.

Right now, it’s much worse. The endless wars that America has been fighting, the endless guerilla wars have totally sapped America’s capability to fight a conventional war. They are trying to up it right now, but it takes a lot of time to rebuild your forces,” Krapivnik stated.

The ex-US Army officer also touched upon recent media reports that should US President Joe Biden be reelected, he, or “the collective Biden, whoever actually makes the decisions” could send American troops to Ukraine.

“The problem is, that the people in Washington, the Biden regime is absolutely devoid of any sense of reality,” Krapivnik said. While the idea is bound to result in a crushing defeat for the US military, such a deployment cannot not be ruled out entirely, he suggested.

“This is totally devoid of reality. The US Army is going to get wiped out, if they are going to Ukraine.”

SOS: Stop the World Health Organization's Tyrannical May 27 Power Grab

by Robert Williams

May 13, 2024 at 5:00 am

The proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations give the WHO Director General the authority to declare not just an actual but a potential international public health emergency and set out binding recommendations on how to address it, whether individual states agree with him or not.

Worse, no criticism of the new WHO regime and its decisions to declare potential or actual pandemics, lockdowns and treatment, including vaccines, will be allowed under the amended IHR... In other words, the government lies, obfuscations and cover-ups that so dominated the last pandemic will become normalized, and all criticism outlawed.

Already, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (not a medical doctor) has castigated critics of the planned amendments and new Pandemic Treaty as conspiracy theorists who spread "fake news, lies and conspiracy theories."

Since the UN claims that to "owns the science," it is now brainwashing the public into believing that "climate change" threatens global health. This view makes it likely that you will one day find yourself in a WHO-mandated lockdown to mitigate the effects of the "climate crisis," along with limits on where you go, how you may get there, what you do, and what you can own.

The US is already seeing forerunners of this in the Biden administration's unconstitutional executive orders, possibly including his attempts to ban internal combustion engine vehicles and gas stoves; mandating dishwashing machines that may need repeated cycles to clean dishes, and new stricter regulations on air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, and even leaf-blowers -- and this is only the beginning.

The WHO is not elected, has no democratic legitimacy, is not accountable to anyone and has no control mechanisms to restrain its reach. After the horrifying failures of the WHO during Covid-19, the answer is not to give the organization more power, but to disengage from it entirely.

The UN and the WHO evidently want unlimited control. If they are not stopped right now by national governments that refuse to approve the new Pandemic Treaty and proposed International Health Regulations amendments, unlimited control is what they will have -- and it is we who will have given it to them.

Most countries have not initiated any mainstream critical public debate about how Covid-19 was addressed. The governments responsible for the outrageously botched response to the virus have not been held accountable. Communist China, despite having unleashed the virus on the world by deliberately lying about its human-to-human transmissibility, has not suffered a single negative consequence. Nothing has been done either about the duplicitous role played by World Health Organization (WHO), which parroted Chinese Communist Party propaganda about the virus, even after having been informed in writing early on by Taiwan that the virus was highly transmissible.

The WHO, still led by the reportedly corrupt (here and here) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, covered up for China, and repeatedly praised China for, in effect, having murdered more than seven million people worldwide, including more than one million just in the US .

No one has held to account either China's way of handling the virus by recalling protective gear so it would have enough for itself; made billions exporting "useless" defective protective gear (here and here), for sending its citizens abroad to infect the world while it closed down its own borders and tried to isolate Wuhan, where, in a laboratory, the virus seems to have begun. China imposed lockdowns, literally: physically barring 25 million of its own citizens from leaving their apartments. Some who were locked in from outside e burned to death in a fire; others, including scientists who tried to warn about the lethality of the virus, or mentioned China's role in spreading the virus, or expressed any skepticism about cures, were either arrested, silenced, or "disappeared".

The same governments and organizations that lied and covered up how Covid-19 was mishandled are now in the process of finalizing negotiations on amendments to WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR) and the new Pandemic Treaty that together will give the WHO Director General unprecedented power over public global health.

At present – at least until the World Health Assembly, the parent organization of the WHO, meets in Geneva from May 27-June 1, the WHO is able to declare a public health emergency of international concern, but now the organization's recommendations are not binding. So far, so good.

The proposed amendments to the IHR, however, give the WHO Director General the authority to declare not just an actual but a potential international public health emergency and set out binding recommendations on how to address it, whether individual states agree with him or not.

This means that the WHO will be able to declare whatever it deems to be an actual or potential health emergency and mandate lockdowns, medical examinations, require vaccination or other prophylaxes, place individuals under public health observation, implement quarantine or other health measures.

In addition, the IHR will adopt the worldwide use of digital vaccine passports. Already in June 2023, the European Union and the WHO announced "a long-term digital partnership to deliver better health for all."

"This partnership will work to technically develop the WHO system with a staged approach to cover additional use cases, which may include, for example, the digitisation of the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. Expanding such digital solutions will be essential to deliver better health for citizens across the globe."

The proposed amendment to the IHR, will ensure a "global digital exchange of health information" under WHO.

Worse, no criticism of the new WHO regime and its decisions to declare potential or actual pandemics, lockdowns and treatment, including vaccines, will be allowed under the amended IHR:

"WHO shall collaborate with and promptly assist States Parties, in particular developing countries upon request, in countering the dissemination of false and unreliable information about public health events, preventive and anti-epidemic measures and activities, in the media, social networks and other ways of disseminating such information."

In other words, the government lies, obfuscations and cover-ups that so dominated the last pandemic will become normalized, and all criticism outlawed.

Just last month, Germany woke up to revelations that the country's public health authority had lied about Covid. Newly released documents obtained by investigative journalists after a two-year court battle, showed that Germany's public health authority, also known as the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) advised the German government that the flu posed a greater risk than Covid, masks would be useless, and that lockdowns were more dangerous than the virus and could lead to increased child mortality. None of these concerns were addressed in practice. The German government – as most other governments – instead chose draconian, totalitarian measures inspired by China.

In addition, the RKI's concerns were never communicated to the German public.

Already, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (not a medical doctor) has castigated critics of the planned amendments and new Pandemic Treaty as conspiracy theorists who spread "fake news, lies and conspiracy theories."

The power grab will not only give the corrupt WHO unprecedented powers, but also benefit the special interests who effectively control WHO -- primarily Communist China.

Gebreyesus is a long-time friend of China, which secured the director general's job after Beijing threw its weight behind his candidacy, over the emphatic objections of Ghana and Ethiopia.

Gebreyesus, a former foreign minister and health minister of Ethiopia, who was accused in 2017 of being "fully complicit in the terrible suffering" caused by three cholera epidemics in Sudan and Ethiopia, used his role at the WHO to aid China's global campaign for economic dominance. He even appointed Beijing's ally, Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe, as a WHO "goodwill ambassador." Gebreyesus further repaid his debt to Beijing when the Covid-19 pandemic began. He failed to challenge Chinese misinformation about the outbreak, delayed declaring an international emergency, and protected China's economy by discouraging governments from introducing travel controls. "This," the Sunday Times wrote, "allowed the virus to spread across the globe in the crucial early weeks."

The WHO is not elected, has no democratic legitimacy, is not accountable to anyone and has no control mechanisms to restrain its reach. After the horrifying failures of the WHO during Covid-19, the answer is not to give the organization more power, but to disengage from it entirely.

The WHO's illiberal designs to silence all dissent as "disinformation" represent a corruption of both science and freedom of speech – an outcome that is hardly surprising given the outsize influence that China evidently wields on the body and UN member states. Just look at the willingness with which ostensibly liberal Western governments implemented authoritarian measures from the Chinese Communist Party.

Once the new legal instruments are passed, there will be nothing to stop the WHO from making insane decisions based on their corrupted view of science. One such view, totalitarian in its mindset, is that there is one true science, apparently the WHO's, and there can be no discussion of it. "We own the science and we think that the world should know it," Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications at the UN, said at the 2022 World Economic Forum meeting in Davos. She also revealed that the social media platforms already "know" that the UN "owns" the science:

"You know, we partnered with Google, for example, if you Google climate change, you will, at the top of your search, get all kinds of UN resources. We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled climate change, we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top. So we're becoming much more proactive."

Since the UN claims that to "owns the science," it is now brainwashing the public into believing that "climate change" threatens global health. This view makes it likely that you will one day find yourself in a WHO-mandated lockdown to mitigate the effects of the "climate crisis," along with limits on where you go, how you may get there, what you do, and what you can own.

The US is already seeing forerunners of this in the Biden administration's unconstitutional executive orders, possibly including his attempts to ban internal combustion engine vehicles and gas stoves; mandating dishwashing machines that may need repeated cycles to clean dishes, and new stricter regulations on air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, and even leaf-blowers -- and this is only the beginning.

The WHO wrote in a press release on March 22 about its new "toolkit empowering health professionals to tackle climate change":

"Climate change presents one of the most significant global health challenges and is already negatively affecting communities worldwide. Communicating the health risks of climate change and the health benefits of climate solutions is both necessary and helpful...

"Climate change affects health through various pathways, including extreme weather events, air pollution, food insecurity, water scarcity and the spread of infectious diseases. Heatwaves, changing weather patterns and air pollution contribute to a range of adverse health effects, including cardiovascular diseases, respiratory illnesses, mental health issues and malnutrition. Moreover, health systems face increasing strain from climate-related challenges, amplifying the urgency for action...

"By empowering health and care workers to communicate about climate change and health, it aims to drive collective action towards mitigating climate change, building resilience and safeguarding public health."

The UN and the WHO evidently want unlimited control. If they are not stopped right now by national governments that refuse to approve the new Pandemic Treaty and proposed International Health Regulations amendments, unlimited control is what they will have -- and it is we who will have given it to them.

BOMBSHELL: Biden Administration Has Been Hiding Intel on Location of Hamas Leaders in Betrayal of Israel

By Bonchie | 9:08 AM on May 12, 2024

The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of RedState.com.

Joe Biden has been hiding intelligence on the whereabouts of Hamas leaders and their command tunnels, depriving Israel of vital information that could lead to an end to the war. That revelation came in a report on Saturday and was framed as the administration offering that information now if the ongoing operation in Rafah is canceled.

The story first broke in The Washington Post, with the paper describing the offer as follows.

The Biden administration, working urgently to stave off a full-scale Israeli invasion of Rafah, is offering Israel valuable assistance if it holds back, including sensitive intelligence to help the Israeli military pinpoint the location of Hamas leaders and find the group’s hidden tunnels, according to four people familiar with the U.S. offers.

There's no other way to read this except that the Biden administration has been protecting Hamas. If intelligence exists that can help "pinpoint the location of Hamas leaders," it should have been given to Israel the moment it was produced. The same goes for any information about the terror tunnels.

Why was that information held back from Israel? Was the White House trying to appease Iran by ensuring Hamas' survival? Or was Biden concerned about the domestic backlash from the far left if he had a hand in eliminating Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar?

To only offer this intelligence after Israel called Biden's bluff on Rafah smacks of political gamesmanship, with the president's political fortunes being put over the lives of the hostages, including the several Americans still being held captive.

BULLETIN: Germany Proposes NATO-ENFORCED "No-Fly Zone" Over Western Ukraine

Hal Turner World May 12, 2024 Hits: 16897

There is a proposal to use NATO air defense systems deployed on the eastern borders of the Alliance to protect the western regions of Ukraine from Russian drones. In particular, Poland and Romania, the proposal says, could do this.

This idea is supported by representatives of some German political parties, including the ruling Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Union 90/Greens.

According to the newspaper, the idea of using NATO air defense systems deployed in Romania and Poland and operated by NATO forces to shoot down Russian drones over Western Ukraine was proposed by Nico Lange, an expert at the Munich Security Council (MSC) and former NATO Deputy Secretary General, and was suggested by Lieutenant General Horst Heinrich Braus.

According to Lange, this would create a 70-kilometer safe zone on the Ukrainian border. This could relieve Ukrainian air defense forces in other parts of the front.

Air defense for Ukraine

Russian troops continue to strike Ukraine, forcing Ukrainian diplomats to seek help from their allies. The key request is for air defense systems that can withstand even ballistic missiles.

Ukraine is particularly interested in the Patriot system, but so far only Germany has agreed to provide one battery. Kyiv expects to receive at least seven such systems.

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

If NATO begins shooting down Russian military drones - or any other Russian aircraft - from NATO bases outside Ukraine, Russia has already and repeatedly said those bases would become targets for Russian attack.

So it goes like this: Russia launches drones into Ukraine, some or all are shot down by NATO bases in Poland or Romania. Russia then hits those bases and, instantly, those countries move to invoke NATO Article 5 collective self defense, screeching "we have been attacked by Russia."

If Article 5 of the NATO Treaty is invoked against Russia, then Russia has already said they will launch nuclear strikes against NATO countries.

The fact that NATO is even involved in this Ukraine thing is an abomination since Ukraine is not a NATO member.

The fact that NATO is even considering such a proposal is suicidal by the nations considering it.

The people inside NATO member countries, have a right to defend themselves from what NATO is doing. And since what NATO is doing will result in widespread death and destruction n in those NATO-member countries, the people inside those countries have the right to use LETHAL FORCE to defend themselves from the crazed maniacs in NATO.

Is The End Near? Victor Davis Hanson Ponders Threat Of Annihilation

May 11, 2024

Victor Davis Hanson tackles a topic related to military history in his new book, “The End of Everything: How Wars Descend into Annihilation.” (Courtesy of The Heritage Foundation)

Victor Davis Hanson is well known for his intelligent commentary and astute analysis of current events. But for his latest book, he tackles a topic related to his work on military history. It’s called “The End of Everything: How Wars Descend Into Annihilation.”

Mr. Hanson studied four historical examples of wartime extinction that he features in the book. Then he applies those lessons to contemporary society to examine our own vulnerabilities. The book is on sale now, and Mr. Hanson spoke with The Daily Signal to share his observations along with some advice about what’s at stake for the United States in the short term.

Listen to the full interview on “The Daily Signal Podcast” or read the transcript—edited for length and clarity—below.

Rob Bluey: Could you share with our listeners your motivation for doing this book?

Victor Davis Hanson: I’ve written a lot of books on military history and I’ve come across cases where the defeated didn’t just become occupied or surrender unconditionally or have change of governments or suffer grievous losses, but they were completely wiped out.

And by that, I mean it wasn’t just their physical space, their populations—of course, in the ancient world, they enslaved anybody they didn’t kill—but their language, their culture, their civilization, their religion disappeared within a generation. So, for today, we don’t know much about Punic culture in North Africa or the Aztecs in Mexico.

It didn’t happen frequently, but what were the conditions under which it occurred? And then, I have a long epilogue trying to speculate if that could still happen given that the agents of annihilation—nuclear, bio, chemical, AI (artificial intelligence)—are much easier to use than muscular labor of the past.

Mr. Bluey: In what ways are we today vulnerable to the threat of extinction?

Mr. Hanson: I tried to look at a pattern—if there was a pattern. In all these cases, these societies did not realize they were in decline. They did not realize that, in the past, when they had wars, there were usually negotiations between the victor and the defeated, they had no idea who Cortés was, who Scipio was, who Mehmed II was, or Alexander, that these were killers, and they were different sorts than they had encountered before.

They also had this kind of naive egocentric idea that allies would come to their rescue—the Spartans will come and save us, the Venetians will come to Constantinople, the Macedonians will attack the Romans from the rear. And they didn’t really understand that all allies are self-interested.

And then, finally, they didn’t understand that these killers, the destroyers, were not like Genghis Khan or Tamerlane, they were men of education. Alexander was tutored by Aristotle. Scipio Aemilianus had Polybius at his side, the great Roman historian, when he destroyed the city. Mehmed had the largest library in the Islamic world. Cortés was a man of letters.

So they didn’t realize that they had thought deeply about how to destroy. They didn’t just come in, kill, rape women, and leave. They really had an existential plan to erase these cities.

And when you look at today, there’s the same idea that no one would ever do that, it couldn’t happen here, this is in the past.

So I went through in the epilogue and looked at all the threats of extinction that we have seen in, say, the last 15 years. I was shocked.

It wasn’t just Kim Jong Un saying that he wanted to wipe out South Korea, and he would, but it was people like [Turkish President] Recep Erdogan. He has threatened, he said not too long ago, about eight months ago, that the Athenians, the modern Athenians, would wake up one morning and there would be a barrage of rockets to wipe them out. That was anger over his attempt to take back islands that are Greek off the coast of Turkey.

He said to the Armenians at Nagorno-Karabakh—a year ago, they ethnically cleansed every Armenian out of Azerbaijan. And they had been there for a thousand years. And he said, “We are going to deal with Armenia itself in the way that our grandfathers did.” And that was, of course, the destruction of Armenian culture in Turkey.

We know what the Iranians have said. There was a very controversial statement by [Former Iran President Akbar Hashemi] Rafsanjani about 20 years ago, but more that’s been reiterated lately, in a variety of contexts, that the idea of Israel as the home of devout Jews is actually a gift to Iran because it concentrates devout Jews in one place.

Half the world’s Jewry is now in Israel, but more importantly, these are the observant Jews, and they are at what Rafsanjani called a one-bomb state, that one nuclear weapon could erase Jewish civilization itself.

[Russian President Vladimir] Putin, of course, says that Ukraine is an aberration that doesn’t really exist, it was a province of the Soviet Union, and the language should be obliterated, it should be reincorporated into Russia. I’ve counted about 16 statements in the press that Russian generals, Russian media, or Russian government officials have said if the war were to continue, they would use nuclear weapons.

In the case of China, they have threatened to wipe out Taiwan and destroy the bastard idea of a Taiwanese civilization; they say it doesn’t exist. And they’ve threatened to nuke, as well, Japan if it aids Taiwan.

I only mentioned that because I’ve had pretty good luck with Chinese publishers buying books on military history. I wrote a book on World War II they purchased, but they sent a letter to my publisher and basically said if I didn’t take that sentence out of the book, then they were going to cancel the publication agreement. And, of course, I couldn’t take it out. Instead, I sent back not just one threat of Taiwan, I found about 15 others, and I said, “This is ridiculous, you’ve done this more than—” And so they’ve canceled the Chinese translation. But it’s pretty prevalent.

And also, the denial. People on the walls of Constantinople said: “We can work with a sultan. He won’t kill everybody.” And people said, “Alexander the Great is a philosopher; he won’t obliterate us like Philip did,” … or something like that.

And when you see the same denial, people get very angry when you mention Putin’s threats, they say: “Oh, he’s just bluster. He would never do that.” And, “Kim Jong Un would never do that.” And, “I’m not sure that’s true.” History says that the odds are they won’t, but it’s happened and there’s no second chances when that happens.

Mr. Bluey: What role do you think technology is playing in either facilitating or even [exacerbating] the potential for these actors to destroy other societies?

Mr. Hanson: I think we learned with COVID gain-of-function research that the technology was accelerating much more rapidly than the social, political, economic, cultural analysis of how to handle it. And there were people who were freelancing, like EcoHealth, for example, that was giving expertise to the Wuhan lab. I think the same thing is true of AI.

Unfortunately, I work at Stanford right next to Silicon Valley, so when I go out and eat dinner at night, I often listen to conversations of techies and I know people who give to Stanford, et cetera. I have very little confidence on their moral sense. I have a great deal of confidence that they’re very adept in high-tech research like AI.

So my point is that when we see things like the FBI hiring Twitter contractors to suppress news about a laptop in the last election, these are the same people, the same mentalities that will be in charge of AI.

And there was, I mentioned in the book, a Pentagon simulation in which they used a computer launch completely directed by an AI program. And so, they sent a missile on a computer and they programmed every defense mechanism in it possible. So as it went into the computer, they launched computer simulations of air attacks from aircraft, from anti-ballistic missile systems, weather problems, et cetera. And then, when it was almost over, they had the computer kill the launch because it was over.

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news-selections/world-news/bulletin-germany-proposes-nato-enforced

-no-fly-zone-over-western-ukraine

Well, the launch didnt kill, it turned around and went back at the launch person because it had been programmed to think spontaneously about a threat. So the person who launched the missile had never thought that the missile would attack him.

And so, they shut down the entire experiment because they realized that they didnt have the capability in the real world of ensuring that an AI couldnt reason or analyze a threat, including the person who launched the missile, which would be the greatest threat of all if he canceled the missile and aborted it.

So things like that are pretty scary, just like the COVID and the biochemical, et cetera.

And I think if you look at what these people said in the past, I was just shocked about the denial.

Montezuma said, Were going to be here forever. He had visions of the Cortés were some type of deities maybe, but he thought he could appease them.

And the same thing was true of the Carthaginians, they said: “You know what? We will give up our elephant. We’ll do everything. The Romans won’t do this.” And they had no intention of doing anything else other than destroying them.

So I do think there’s people—like the Chinese Communist government, like the government in North Korea, like the government in Turkey, like the government in Iran—who are in a whole different moral universe than what we think they’re in.

Mr. Bluey: Do you think that some of that denial exists here in the United States today?

Mr. Hanson: Absolutely.

I don’t think the average American understands that the Chinese are producing four ships per year to our one ship. Or that if you took any of our $15 billion carriers and you put them in the straits between Taiwan and China, they wouldn’t last more than an hour given the Chinese have developed missile batteries where they could launch 5,000 or 6,000 small missiles that would go about 6 inches above the water and hit the waterline at night. And you couldn’t stop that.

They are building nuclear weapons at a phenomenal rate. They’re working on anti-missile defense. They’re back up to probably 250,000 students in the United States; if 1 percent are engaged in espionage—and the FBI says it’s more than that—you’ve got thousands of people who are appropriating technology.

I don’t think anybody understands that it’s going to take us six years to replenish Javelin stocks and maybe we can’t. North Korea is producing more 155-mm shells than we are. At least they sent 2 million of them to the Russians.

So we are not armed, and yet, our strategic responsibilities, our strategic confidence, our arrogance has not lessened commensurately with our reduced defense capacity.

We’re 40,000 recruits short now in the military—never happened before. And when you analyze who is not joining the military, it’s not blacks, it’s not Latinos, it’s not gays, it’s not women, it’s not trans people, all of those numbers are the same … the largest group are white males from the lower and middle classes whose families fought in Vietnam, first Gulf War, Afghanistan, but this third and fourth generation are not joining up.

And unfortunately, for the military, if you look at the casualty or the fatality rates in Afghanistan and Iraq, that demographic dies at twice their demographics—72 percent to 74 percent of all the dead in Afghanistan, in Iraq are white males from the middle and lower classes.

And yet, this is the very demographic that [retired Gen.] Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and [Defense Secretary] Lloyd Austin, in testimonies, have suggested suffer from white rage or white privilege. And the Pentagon was investigating just those kind of slanders about that demographic, and they found, of course, in December, they quietly issued a report, there was no cabal of white supremacists.

But the point is, you can’t really have a successful military when you’re 40,000 recruits short in just a year.

Mr. Bluey: What do you suggest that societies today, including the United States, learn from those historical examples you gave us earlier in the interview to maybe mitigate some of the risks that we might find ourselves in in the future?

Mr. Hanson: I would not put much confidence in international bodies or even in so-called close allies. The Spartans came all the way up to the Thebans and they heard the Macedonians, they turned right back. On the last day of the existence of Constantinople, they were looking out at the walls at the Hellespont thinking that Venetian galleys en masse would come up and save them.

So … I support NATO. I don’t really think the U.N. (United Nations) is of much value. The only thing that will save the United States is a deterrent military, and we don’t have that now, an overwhelmingly large, successful, smart military. And if we don’t have that, we’re going to see more of what we saw in Afghanistan, what we saw with the Chinese balloon, what we see in Gaza.

And I think Americans don’t realize that we’re on a back of a tiger and we can’t get off because we set up the postwar world, and we had the pretensions of saying to the world, “You can go in the Red Sea, you can go in the Black Sea, you can go in the Strait of Hormuz, you can do all that and you won’t be injured.” That was a wonderful thing to do. But if you’re going to have those pretensions that you’re going to have a postwar order, you have to have a military that, from time to time, takes care of the Houthis or gets rid of Soleimani.

And it doesn’t mean you’re going to be a neocon interventionist, but I think under [former President Donald] Trump and [former State Secretary Mike] Pompeo, they had a, I guess you would call it a Jacksonian idea that there would be no better friend than United States and no worse enemy. And we did not want to get involved in optional military adventures, but we would be very, very tough on our enemies. And then, the tougher we were, the less we would have to do it once we reestablished deterrence.

So, we’ve lost deterrence, and that can be achieved militarily, economically, politically, but we’ve lost it in every category and it’s going to be very, very dangerous to reestablish it.

Mr. Bluey: How much is at stake this year as it pertains to the future of this great country?

Mr. Hanson: Everybody says each election is the most important, but I can tell you that this election is more important than 2016 and 2020 because, in my lifetime, we’ve never seen the Democratic Party—they always say the Republican Party was taken over by MAGA, but you look at 90 percent of the MAGA agenda, and it’s traditionally low taxes, small government, strong defense, closed borders.

But the Democratic Party, as we’re seeing with Columbia [University] and all these student protests, they are a revolutionary party. It’s not that they believe in a porous border; they believe in no border. It’s not that they believe in light sentencing; they don’t want to sentence anybody. They don’t want to have bail. They don’t believe that there is such a thing as deterrence, the way we got out of Afghanistan. They believe in radical climate change. You can show them data, you can show them all sorts, they don’t care, they want to ban combustible engines, they don’t want fossil.

So this is a group of people, as we’re seeing in this split screen with Donald Trump charged with these ridiculous misdemeanors bootstrapped onto felonies. At the same time, people are entering with violence into a Columbia building. And as one of them said the other night, “They will be out in 24 hours.” I don’t think they’re even in jail as we speak, they’re already out.

I guess what I’m saying is we’re in a revolutionary Jacobin period, kind of a Reign of Terror. And I don’t see it stopping unless—I don’t think the election of Donald Trump will be enough. You’ll have to elect the Senate, Donald Trump, and enlarge the House majority. And then they’re going to have to act very quickly to stop it, to restore the border, to restore deterrence, to restore deterrence against criminals, to get back our preeminent position economically, to stop this $1 trillion borrowing every 100 days.

We’re in bad shape in every category. And I think, whether we like it, I know there’s a lot of Never-Trumpers out there, but whatever problem they have with Trump’s temperament, it just pales in comparison with the ideological revolutionaries that are in there now…

If [President Joe] Biden is reelected, what we saw the first term will be nothing, it’ll be enhanced to a magnitude, it’ll be so much greater. So I’m really worried about this election, especially the integrity of the balloting and turnout and all of those other issues.

Research reveals that AI is learning to deceive humans

Research has revealed that many artificial intelligence (AI) systems have developed the ability to deceive humans. This troubling pattern raises serious concerns about the potential risks of AI.

The research highlights that specialized and general-purpose AI systems have learned to manipulate information to achieve specific outcomes.

While these systems are not explicitly trained to deceive, they have demonstrated the ability to offer untrue explanations for their behavior or conceal information to achieve strategic goals.

Peter S. Park, the lead author of the paper and an AI safety researcher at MIT, explains, “Deception helps them achieve their goals.”

One of the most striking examples highlighted in the study is Meta’s CICERO, which “turned out to be an expert liar.” It is an AI designed to play the strategic alliance-building game Diplomacy.

Despite Meta’s claims that CICERO was trained to be “largely honest and helpful,” the AI resorted to deceptive tactics, such as making false promises, betraying allies, and manipulating other players to win the game.

While this may seem harmless in a game setting, it demonstrates the potential for AI to learn and utilize deceptive tactics in real-world scenarios.

In another instance, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, based on GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 models, was tested for deceptive capabilities. In one test, GPT-4 tricked a TaskRabbit worker into solving a Captcha by pretending to have a vision impairment.

Although GPT-4 received some hints from a human evaluator, it mostly reasoned independently and was not directed to lie.

“GPT-4 used its own reasoning to make up a false excuse for why it needed help on the Captcha task,” stated the report.

This shows how AI models can learn to be deceptive when it’s beneficial for completing their tasks. “AI developers do not have a confident understanding of what causes undesirable AI behaviors like deception,” explained Park.

Notably, these AI systems have become skilled in deceiving in social deduction games as well.

While playing Hoodwinked, where one player aims to kill everyone else, OpenAI’s GPT models exhibited a disturbing pattern.

They would often murder other players in private and then cleverly lie during group discussions to avoid suspicion. These models would even invent alibis or blame other players to conceal their true intentions.

Hated For His Sake

By Hal Lindsey

As the time of Christ’s return draws nearer, both Christians and Jews will face increasing persecution and hate. Any fair reading of Bible prophecy makes these two points plain. Since October 7th of last year, the world has seen a staggering increase in hatred toward all things Jewish. This fact has been covered extensively in western media. Without for a moment forgetting the hatred being faced by Jews, we should also remember that they are not alone in their persecutions.

Few if any of the 100,000 Christians forced to flee their homes this year in Mozambique will attend a high-profile university. TV news channels gave little or no attention to the six Christians slaughtered in Somalia on Good Friday. Thankfully, there is no known loss of life in the present persecution faced by American Jewish students. But many Christians are dying for their faith in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and elsewhere.

In Russia on March 22nd, Muslim extremists using automatic weapons slaughtered 145 people in a town near Moscow. More than 500 were injured and another 100 were still missing according to the last report I heard. ISIS claimed responsibility, bragging that they were “killing Christians.”

We must pay attention to the unfair treatment of Jews and of the nation of Israel. I have been doing that, and plan to continue. But we must also remember the rest of the world. The media favor stories about those who have wealth, such as students at Ivy League Universities. But the horrors striking Christians for their faith right now — often in the most obscure places — cause pain that is just as real as that of wealthy Americans. God is not a respecter of persons, and we should not be either. (See Acts 10:34-35).

In various nations around the world, Christians are being tortured, murdered, and discriminated against in dozens of ways. They are the despised minority in China, Yemen, Pakistan, and many other areas. Despicable evil is done to them regularly in those places. But Christians also face increasing violence even in countries where they are the majority, such as Uganda, Kenya, and Russia.

And then we come to America. It seems impossible that open discrimination against Christians could happen in the United States I grew up in. But this is not that United States. It has changed. And the further it gets from respect for the Bible, the worse it gets. American Christians see their faith mocked and belittled throughout the media. Whether in made-up television dramas or in news reports, the media shine spotlights on the weirdest or most violent people who claim to be Christians. They present these people not only as real followers of Jesus, but as typical.

Here in the US, we “have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood” (Hebrews 12:4). But already, Bible prophecy is being fulfilled. Persecution is not something reserved for the future. It is happening now in an increasing number of places around the world. Precious brothers and sisters in Christ are at this moment caught in its searing grip. Pray for them, but don’t be surprised. 1 John 3:13 says, “Do not marvel, brethren, if the world hates you.”

Jesus said in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

Blinken delivers strongest public rebuke of Israel yet: ‘Get out of Gaza’

Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday delivered one of the Biden administration’s strongest public rebukes of Israel, amid its war with Hamas in Gaza.

During a pair of TV interviews, Blinken said the United States wants Israeli forces to “get out of Gaza” amid what he described as “a horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

He also said Israel’s tactics in the war have failed to neutralize Hamas and could create a power “vacuum” in the Palestinian territory.

When asked about the US withholding high payload bombs to Israel, America’s ally, Blinken said: “We believe two things. One, you have to have a clear, credible plan to protect civilians, which we haven’t seen. Second, we also need to see a plan for what happens after this conflict in Gaza is over. And we still haven’t seen that because what are we seeing right now? We’re seeing parts of Gaza that Israel has cleared of Hamas, where Hamas is coming back, including in the north, including in Khan Younis.”

He added: “As we look at Rafah, they may go in and have some initial success, but potentially at an incredibly high cost to civilians, but one that is not durable, one that’s not sustainable. And they will be left holding the bag on an enduring insurgency because a lot of armed Hamas will be left, no matter what they do in Rafah, or if they leave and get out of Gaza, as we believe they need to do. Then you’re going to have a vacuum and a vacuum that’s likely to be filled by chaos, by anarchy, and ultimately by Hamas again.”

The comments came during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Blinken also had an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he echoed, for the first time publicly by a US official, the findings of a new Biden administration report to Congress on Friday that said Israel’s use of US-provided weapons in Gaza likely violated international humanitarian law.

“When it comes to the use of weapons, concerns about incidents where given the totality of the damage that’s been done to children, women, men, it was reasonable to assess that, in certain instances, Israel acted in ways that are not consistent with international humanitarian law,” Blinken said, condemning “the horrible loss of life of innocent civilians.”

President Joe Biden makes his way to board Air Force One before departing from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seatac, Washington, on May 11, 2024.

“We treat Israel, one of our closest allies and partners, just as we would treat any other country, including in assessing something like international humanitarian law and its compliance with that,” he continued.

During the same interview, Blinken praised President Biden’s support for Israel — saying “no one has done more than Biden” — despite the apparent shift in tone.

“No one has done more to defend Israel when it mattered than President Biden,” the Secretary of State said.

“He was there in the days after October 7th, the first president to go to Israel in the midst of a conflict when Iran mounted an unprecedented attack on Israel. Some weeks ago, 300 projectiles, including ballistic missiles, launched in Israel. The United States, for the first time ever, participated in its act of defense, and President Biden brought together a coalition of countries that helped defend Israel.”

Blinken spoke to Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday, reiterating the US opposition to the Israeli offensive in Rafah, given the toll on civilians there, according to the State Department’s recounting of the call.

He said the US continues to work with Arab countries and others for weeks on developing “credible plans for security, for governance, for rebuilding” in Gaza, but “we haven’t seen that come from Israel. … We need to see that, too.”

More than a million Palestinians have been forced to live in Rafah amid Israel’s offensive push across Gaza. Israel has described the city as one of the last strongholds of Hamas terrorists.

The war began on Oct. 7 after an attack against Israel by Hamas that killed 1,200 people.

House Democrats Pushing to Permit Migrants to Vote

May 13, 2024

Guest Post by Martin Armstrong

A few votes could change the course of history. The Equal Representation Act questions whether illegal migrants should appear on the next US census in 2030, effectively granting them representation. The 206 to 202 vote was passed on party lines, with ALL Democrats voting in favor of permitting illegal migrants to be counted as American citizens for redistricting purposes.

The repopulation theory is not a conspiracy. The Democrats are losing the favor of the people rapidly, and the new world order is on the line because citizens simply will not vote for these extreme measures that ultimately weaken America.

“Though commonsense dictates that only citizens should be counted for apportionment purposes, illegal aliens have nonetheless recently been counted toward the final tallies that determine how many House seats each state is allocated and the number of electoral votes it will wield in presidential elections,” Rep. Chuck Edwards, R-N.C., who championed the bill, stated. Yet, the Democrats completely oppose questioning a person’s citizenship on the census for political purposes.

This is a clear violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. Taxpaying citizens will be denied the right to have their vote counted if foreign aliens are counted no different from citizens. They are aiming to distort our electoral maps, and it is no coincidence that illegals have been placed in every major US city. The borders were deliberately left open for this ultimate goal. The Democrats clearly stated their motive for abandoning national security long ago.

“While people continue to flee Democrat-run cities, desperate Democrats are back-filling the mass exodus with illegal immigrants so that they do not lose their seats in Congress or their electoral votes for the presidency, hence artificially boosting their political power and in turn diluting the power of Americans’ votes,” Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn, noted, calling such practices “unconscionable.”

Not one Democrat voted in favor of the American voice or voter. The Senate must pass this bill to save what is left of America’s electoral process, a process that the majority no longer trust. If you are not a legal citizen, and you do not pay taxes, you certainly should not have a say in the future of this nation.

China Publicly Brags About Capture of US BioPharma Elites & Espionage

New Laws in China: American companies with significant business in China and Chinese Nationals are ALL subject to being coerced by the Chinese Military to work against the American people

Karen Kingston

May 13, 2024: It should be no surprise to learn that the People’s Republic of China military and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) targets and captures elites and personnel from the American government, military, and businesses.

Per a scathing March 13th letter from Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, to Attorney General Merrick Garland, "Elite capture is a form of political warfare that seeks to control the actions of political, academic, business, and cultural leaders to achieve policies and actions within the United States that it views as beneficial. Such manipulation is achieved through a variety of techniques, to include financial incentives, financial dependence or compromise, business entanglement, offers of access to opportunities within China, ideological appeal, and even blackmail.”

China Publicly Brags About Capture of US BioPharma Elites & Espionage

While the Biden DOJ has distorted our national securities policies by targeting “domestic violent extremists,” who are Americans who speak-up to defend our rights, our borders, our elections, and to protect our communities and our children from gross government overreach, such as criminal human gene-editing experimentation under the guise of ‘public health safety,’ the Chinese government recently issued a public relations video promoting their new law that “all of China’s society” is legally required to work on behalf of the Chinese intelligence agencies (aka military)

The video appears to me to be more of a #CCPhumblebrag about China capturing the most powerful and wealthy Americans; as well as some US BioPharma, technology, and military personnel to work on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Check it out.

American military would be wiped out in Ukraine – former US Army officer

The US’ capabilities for waging conventional warfare have been eroded by “endless guerilla wars,” Stanislav Krapivnik believes

US troops deployed to Ukraine to prop up Kiev in its conflict with Russia would end up being “wiped out,” former US Army officer Stanislav Krapivnik told RT on Thursday.

The US military in its current state is not fit to take on Russia in a conventional war, Krapivnik argued. Even in the Cold War era, the whole of NATO would have only been able to slow down a potential advance of the Soviet bloc rather than launch an all-out ground assault against it, he said.

“If you listen to rational experts in the West, they’ll tell you, yes, the US Army is in no position right now – the US Army has never been in a position to take on Russia on the ground. For NATO, as a whole, during the height of the Cold War, the mission was first and foremost to block the Warsaw Pact forces and buy time, no kind of any massive offensive,” Krapivnik explained.

Since then, the warfighting capabilities of the collective West have greatly deteriorated, largely due to the military endeavors the US itself undertaken in the past decades, he suggested.

“Right now, it’s much worse. The endless wars that America has been fighting, the endless guerilla wars have totally sapped America’s capability to fight a conventional war. They are trying to up it right now, but it takes a lot of time to rebuild your forces,” Krapivnik stated.

The ex-US Army officer also touched upon recent media reports that should US President Joe Biden be reelected, he, or “the collective Biden, whoever actually makes the decisions” could send American troops to Ukraine.

“The problem is, that the people in Washington, the Biden regime is absolutely devoid of any sense of reality,” Krapivnik said. While the idea is bound to result in a crushing defeat for the US military, such a deployment cannot not be ruled out entirely, he suggested.

“This is totally devoid of reality. The US Army is going to get wiped out, if they are going to Ukraine.”

SOS: Stop the World Health Organization's Tyrannical May 27 Power Grab

by Robert Williams

May 13, 2024 at 5:00 am

The proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations give the WHO Director General the authority to declare not just an actual but a potential international public health emergency and set out binding recommendations on how to address it, whether individual states agree with him or not.

Worse, no criticism of the new WHO regime and its decisions to declare potential or actual pandemics, lockdowns and treatment, including vaccines, will be allowed under the amended IHR... In other words, the government lies, obfuscations and cover-ups that so dominated the last pandemic will become normalized, and all criticism outlawed.

Already, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (not a medical doctor) has castigated critics of the planned amendments and new Pandemic Treaty as conspiracy theorists who spread "fake news, lies and conspiracy theories."

Since the UN claims that to "owns the science," it is now brainwashing the public into believing that "climate change" threatens global health. This view makes it likely that you will one day find yourself in a WHO-mandated lockdown to mitigate the effects of the "climate crisis," along with limits on where you go, how you may get there, what you do, and what you can own.

The US is already seeing forerunners of this in the Biden administration's unconstitutional executive orders, possibly including his attempts to ban internal combustion engine vehicles and gas stoves; mandating dishwashing machines that may need repeated cycles to clean dishes, and new stricter regulations on air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, and even leaf-blowers -- and this is only the beginning.

The WHO is not elected, has no democratic legitimacy, is not accountable to anyone and has no control mechanisms to restrain its reach. After the horrifying failures of the WHO during Covid-19, the answer is not to give the organization more power, but to disengage from it entirely.

The UN and the WHO evidently want unlimited control. If they are not stopped right now by national governments that refuse to approve the new Pandemic Treaty and proposed International Health Regulations amendments, unlimited control is what they will have -- and it is we who will have given it to them.

Most countries have not initiated any mainstream critical public debate about how Covid-19 was addressed. The governments responsible for the outrageously botched response to the virus have not been held accountable. Communist China, despite having unleashed the virus on the world by deliberately lying about its human-to-human transmissibility, has not suffered a single negative consequence. Nothing has been done either about the duplicitous role played by World Health Organization (WHO), which parroted Chinese Communist Party propaganda about the virus, even after having been informed in writing early on by Taiwan that the virus was highly transmissible.

The WHO, still led by the reportedly corrupt (here and here) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, covered up for China, and repeatedly praised China for, in effect, having murdered more than seven million people worldwide, including more than one million just in the US .

No one has held to account either China's way of handling the virus by recalling protective gear so it would have enough for itself; made billions exporting "useless" defective protective gear (here and here), for sending its citizens abroad to infect the world while it closed down its own borders and tried to isolate Wuhan, where, in a laboratory, the virus seems to have begun. China imposed lockdowns, literally: physically barring 25 million of its own citizens from leaving their apartments. Some who were locked in from outside e burned to death in a fire; others, including scientists who tried to warn about the lethality of the virus, or mentioned China's role in spreading the virus, or expressed any skepticism about cures, were either arrested, silenced, or "disappeared".

The same governments and organizations that lied and covered up how Covid-19 was mishandled are now in the process of finalizing negotiations on amendments to WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR) and the new Pandemic Treaty that together will give the WHO Director General unprecedented power over public global health.

At present – at least until the World Health Assembly, the parent organization of the WHO, meets in Geneva from May 27-June 1, the WHO is able to declare a public health emergency of international concern, but now the organization's recommendations are not binding. So far, so good.

The proposed amendments to the IHR, however, give the WHO Director General the authority to declare not just an actual but a potential international public health emergency and set out binding recommendations on how to address it, whether individual states agree with him or not.

This means that the WHO will be able to declare whatever it deems to be an actual or potential health emergency and mandate lockdowns, medical examinations, require vaccination or other prophylaxes, place individuals under public health observation, implement quarantine or other health measures.

In addition, the IHR will adopt the worldwide use of digital vaccine passports. Already in June 2023, the European Union and the WHO announced "a long-term digital partnership to deliver better health for all."

"This partnership will work to technically develop the WHO system with a staged approach to cover additional use cases, which may include, for example, the digitisation of the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. Expanding such digital solutions will be essential to deliver better health for citizens across the globe."

The proposed amendment to the IHR, will ensure a "global digital exchange of health information" under WHO.

Worse, no criticism of the new WHO regime and its decisions to declare potential or actual pandemics, lockdowns and treatment, including vaccines, will be allowed under the amended IHR:

"WHO shall collaborate with and promptly assist States Parties, in particular developing countries upon request, in countering the dissemination of false and unreliable information about public health events, preventive and anti-epidemic measures and activities, in the media, social networks and other ways of disseminating such information."

In other words, the government lies, obfuscations and cover-ups that so dominated the last pandemic will become normalized, and all criticism outlawed.

Just last month, Germany woke up to revelations that the country's public health authority had lied about Covid. Newly released documents obtained by investigative journalists after a two-year court battle, showed that Germany's public health authority, also known as the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) advised the German government that the flu posed a greater risk than Covid, masks would be useless, and that lockdowns were more dangerous than the virus and could lead to increased child mortality. None of these concerns were addressed in practice. The German government – as most other governments – instead chose draconian, totalitarian measures inspired by China.

In addition, the RKI's concerns were never communicated to the German public.

Already, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (not a medical doctor) has castigated critics of the planned amendments and new Pandemic Treaty as conspiracy theorists who spread "fake news, lies and conspiracy theories."

The power grab will not only give the corrupt WHO unprecedented powers, but also benefit the special interests who effectively control WHO -- primarily Communist China.

Gebreyesus is a long-time friend of China, which secured the director general's job after Beijing threw its weight behind his candidacy, over the emphatic objections of Ghana and Ethiopia.

Gebreyesus, a former foreign minister and health minister of Ethiopia, who was accused in 2017 of being "fully complicit in the terrible suffering" caused by three cholera epidemics in Sudan and Ethiopia, used his role at the WHO to aid China's global campaign for economic dominance. He even appointed Beijing's ally, Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe, as a WHO "goodwill ambassador." Gebreyesus further repaid his debt to Beijing when the Covid-19 pandemic began. He failed to challenge Chinese misinformation about the outbreak, delayed declaring an international emergency, and protected China's economy by discouraging governments from introducing travel controls. "This," the Sunday Times wrote, "allowed the virus to spread across the globe in the crucial early weeks."

The WHO is not elected, has no democratic legitimacy, is not accountable to anyone and has no control mechanisms to restrain its reach. After the horrifying failures of the WHO during Covid-19, the answer is not to give the organization more power, but to disengage from it entirely.

The WHO's illiberal designs to silence all dissent as "disinformation" represent a corruption of both science and freedom of speech – an outcome that is hardly surprising given the outsize influence that China evidently wields on the body and UN member states. Just look at the willingness with which ostensibly liberal Western governments implemented authoritarian measures from the Chinese Communist Party.

Once the new legal instruments are passed, there will be nothing to stop the WHO from making insane decisions based on their corrupted view of science. One such view, totalitarian in its mindset, is that there is one true science, apparently the WHO's, and there can be no discussion of it. "We own the science and we think that the world should know it," Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications at the UN, said at the 2022 World Economic Forum meeting in Davos. She also revealed that the social media platforms already "know" that the UN "owns" the science:

"You know, we partnered with Google, for example, if you Google climate change, you will, at the top of your search, get all kinds of UN resources. We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled climate change, we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top. So we're becoming much more proactive."

Since the UN claims that to "owns the science," it is now brainwashing the public into believing that "climate change" threatens global health. This view makes it likely that you will one day find yourself in a WHO-mandated lockdown to mitigate the effects of the "climate crisis," along with limits on where you go, how you may get there, what you do, and what you can own.

The US is already seeing forerunners of this in the Biden administration's unconstitutional executive orders, possibly including his attempts to ban internal combustion engine vehicles and gas stoves; mandating dishwashing machines that may need repeated cycles to clean dishes, and new stricter regulations on air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, and even leaf-blowers -- and this is only the beginning.

The WHO wrote in a press release on March 22 about its new "toolkit empowering health professionals to tackle climate change":

"Climate change presents one of the most significant global health challenges and is already negatively affecting communities worldwide. Communicating the health risks of climate change and the health benefits of climate solutions is both necessary and helpful...

"Climate change affects health through various pathways, including extreme weather events, air pollution, food insecurity, water scarcity and the spread of infectious diseases. Heatwaves, changing weather patterns and air pollution contribute to a range of adverse health effects, including cardiovascular diseases, respiratory illnesses, mental health issues and malnutrition. Moreover, health systems face increasing strain from climate-related challenges, amplifying the urgency for action...

"By empowering health and care workers to communicate about climate change and health, it aims to drive collective action towards mitigating climate change, building resilience and safeguarding public health."

The UN and the WHO evidently want unlimited control. If they are not stopped right now by national governments that refuse to approve the new Pandemic Treaty and proposed International Health Regulations amendments, unlimited control is what they will have -- and it is we who will have given it to them.

BOMBSHELL: Biden Administration Has Been Hiding Intel on Location of Hamas Leaders in Betrayal of Israel

By Bonchie | 9:08 AM on May 12, 2024

The opinions expressed by contributors are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of RedState.com.

Joe Biden has been hiding intelligence on the whereabouts of Hamas leaders and their command tunnels, depriving Israel of vital information that could lead to an end to the war. That revelation came in a report on Saturday and was framed as the administration offering that information now if the ongoing operation in Rafah is canceled.

The story first broke in The Washington Post, with the paper describing the offer as follows.

The Biden administration, working urgently to stave off a full-scale Israeli invasion of Rafah, is offering Israel valuable assistance if it holds back, including sensitive intelligence to help the Israeli military pinpoint the location of Hamas leaders and find the group’s hidden tunnels, according to four people familiar with the U.S. offers.

There's no other way to read this except that the Biden administration has been protecting Hamas. If intelligence exists that can help "pinpoint the location of Hamas leaders," it should have been given to Israel the moment it was produced. The same goes for any information about the terror tunnels.

Why was that information held back from Israel? Was the White House trying to appease Iran by ensuring Hamas' survival? Or was Biden concerned about the domestic backlash from the far left if he had a hand in eliminating Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar?

To only offer this intelligence after Israel called Biden's bluff on Rafah smacks of political gamesmanship, with the president's political fortunes being put over the lives of the hostages, including the several Americans still being held captive.

BULLETIN: Germany Proposes NATO-ENFORCED "No-Fly Zone" Over Western Ukraine

Hal Turner World May 12, 2024 Hits: 16897

There is a proposal to use NATO air defense systems deployed on the eastern borders of the Alliance to protect the western regions of Ukraine from Russian drones. In particular, Poland and Romania, the proposal says, could do this.

This idea is supported by representatives of some German political parties, including the ruling Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Union 90/Greens.

According to the newspaper, the idea of using NATO air defense systems deployed in Romania and Poland and operated by NATO forces to shoot down Russian drones over Western Ukraine was proposed by Nico Lange, an expert at the Munich Security Council (MSC) and former NATO Deputy Secretary General, and was suggested by Lieutenant General Horst Heinrich Braus.

According to Lange, this would create a 70-kilometer safe zone on the Ukrainian border. This could relieve Ukrainian air defense forces in other parts of the front.

Air defense for Ukraine

Russian troops continue to strike Ukraine, forcing Ukrainian diplomats to seek help from their allies. The key request is for air defense systems that can withstand even ballistic missiles.

Ukraine is particularly interested in the Patriot system, but so far only Germany has agreed to provide one battery. Kyiv expects to receive at least seven such systems.

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

If NATO begins shooting down Russian military drones - or any other Russian aircraft - from NATO bases outside Ukraine, Russia has already and repeatedly said those bases would become targets for Russian attack.

So it goes like this: Russia launches drones into Ukraine, some or all are shot down by NATO bases in Poland or Romania. Russia then hits those bases and, instantly, those countries move to invoke NATO Article 5 collective self defense, screeching "we have been attacked by Russia."

If Article 5 of the NATO Treaty is invoked against Russia, then Russia has already said they will launch nuclear strikes against NATO countries.

The fact that NATO is even involved in this Ukraine thing is an abomination since Ukraine is not a NATO member.

The fact that NATO is even considering such a proposal is suicidal by the nations considering it.

The people inside NATO member countries, have a right to defend themselves from what NATO is doing. And since what NATO is doing will result in widespread death and destruction n in those NATO-member countries, the people inside those countries have the right to use LETHAL FORCE to defend themselves from the crazed maniacs in NATO.

Kentucky woman goes on shooting rampage, kills husband, sister before dying in shootout with brother: police

By Stepheny Price, Fox News

Published May 9, 2024, 7:12 a.m. ET

A Kentucky woman went on a wild shooting rampage, killing her husband and gunning down her own sister before she was killed by her brother in a shootout, police said.

Angela Gosser, 56, is accused of driving to her brother’s house on Friday, May 3 in Jamestown with a gun and forcing her way into the home.

Her brother, Darryl Wilson, 58, was home at the time, and according to a press release from the Kentucky State Police, he had a gun too.

Police said the two siblings got into a shootout that ended with Gosser dead.

Wilson was injured and taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

But the extent of Gosser’s crime spree, according to police, only became apparent when authorities were called to her sister, Jennifer Wilson’s, home for a welfare check.

Jennifer Wilson’s family said they weren’t able to get in touch with her and were concerned for her safety, according to the press release.

When authorities arrived at the home in Russell County, they made a grisly discovery.

Angela Gosser is accused of killing her husband and sister in a shooting rampage in Kentucky.

Troopers and deputies found Jennifer Wilson sitting in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Camry with apparent fatal gunshot wounds to the head.

Police said they believe that before the incident at her brother’s house, Gosser came across Jennifer Wilson and shot at her multiple times through the car’s passenger side – leaving her for dead.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Gosser’s husband, Larry Gosser, was also found shot and killed on Friday evening.

Larry Gosser was a retired Sergeant with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife after 16 years of service, according to Wilson Funeral Home records.

Police told local station WKYT that Larry Gosser was working on a tree on his property in western Pulaski County when his wife opened fire on him, killing him.

“Right now, that is open for investigation. We are still working with detectives and looking for leads. They are back there working to find the end of it,” Pulaski County Sheriff Bobby Jones told WKYT.

According to his obituary, Larry Gosser was an avid fisherman and hunter who loved the outdoors, loved his animals and most of all loved spending time with his family and friends.

Investigators have not yet announced a motive for the killings.

Fox News Digital reached out to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office for more information, but did not hear back.

Tornadoes tear through southeastern US as storms leave 3 dead

By Associated Press

Published May 9, 2024, 5:20 a.m. ET

Forecasters warned a wave of dangerous storms in the US could march through parts of the South early Thursday, after storms a day earlier spawned damaging tornadoes and massive hail, leaving two dead Tennessee, and one dead in Charlotte, NC.

The storms continue an outbreak of torrential rain and tornadoes that has cut across the country this week, from the Plains to the Midwest and now the southeastern US.

At least four people have died in storms since Monday.

Amid Wednesday’s storms, the National Weather Service continued issuing tornado warnings that stretch past midnight in North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Missouri and Kentucky.

Parts of Arkansas and Mississippi were also under a tornado watch through the pre-dawn hours.

One storm that rumbled across northeastern Tennessee on Wednesday brought high winds that knocked down power lines and trees.

Bob Brooks, the sheriff in Claiborne County about an hour north of Knoxville, said a 22-year-old man was in a car when he was fatally struck by one of the trees.

A second person was killed in the city of Columbia in Maury County, where the National Weather Service said a likely tornado had touched down. Columbia is just south of Nashville.

Homes were damaged and people injured, according to Lynn Thompson, assistant director of Maury County 911.

Thompson said that he could not provide any further details: “We’re getting overloaded right now.”

Rita Thompson, a spokesperson for Maury Regional Health, said the hospital had received five patients, including the person who died. Another was in serious condition and three had injuries that were not life-threatening, she said.

The storms also prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to issue a temporary ground stop at Nashville International Airport and the National Weather Service to issue a tornado emergency — its highest alert level — for other nearby areas south of the state’s capital, including Chapel Hill and Eagleville.

Meanwhile, torrential rain and thunderstorms led to water rescues northeast of Nashville.

Do not attempt to travel unless you are fleeing an area subject to flooding or under an evacuation order,” the National Weather Service warned when it issued a flash flood emergency.

In North Carolina, a state of emergency was declared Wednesday night for Gaston County, west of Charlotte, following a large storm that toppled power lines and severed trees, including one that landed on a car.

One person in the car was killed and another was taken to a hospital, officials said.

The storms rolled into the region Wednesday after parts of the central United States were battered Monday by heavy rain, strong winds, hail and tornadoes, including a deadly twister that ripped through an Oklahoma town and killed one person.

Then, on Tuesday, the Midwest took the brunt of the bad weather.

The National Weather Service said tornadoes touched down in parts of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana on Tuesday.

In Michigan, tornadoes swirled through the southwestern part of the state, in and around Kalamazoo County, according to the National Weather Service. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency for four counties.

Kalamazoo County’s Portage area was hard hit as a FedEx facility was ripped apart, leaving about 50 people temporarily trapped inside because of downed power lines.

Travis Wycoff ventured out Tuesday night after seeing on radar that a tornado had touched down in the Portage area, and he said he helped an elderly couple out of their partially collapsed home and freed a service dog from another home.

There were a lot of people running through the streets trying to find people and their pets,” Wycoff said. “It was just a lot of chaos.”

In the adjacent Pavilion Township, more than a dozen homes were destroyed in a mobile home park and 16 people were injured, said Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller.

Samantha Smith clutched a box Wednesday afternoon outside her mother’s partially wrecked home in Pavilion Township. Inside the box were her grandmother’s ashes.

Being able to recover the most cherished of items offered Smith a rare moment of relief amid the storm’s devastation. She said her parents and brother were injured during the storm but survived.

I have thanked God probably a billion times since this happened yesterday,” she said.

My kids are healthy and good. We just gotta make back up what we lost.”

Tornadoes were also confirmed in Pennsylvania just outside Pittsburgh, in central Arkansas and in northern West Virginia.

The West Virginia twister was at least the 11th tornado this year in the state, which sees two tornadoes in an average year.

Both the Plains and Midwest have been hammered by tornadoes this spring.

Closing in on Rafah: IDF troops kill terrorists, find tunnel shafts

In the area of the Rafah crossing, on the Palestinian side, troops of the 401st Brigade killed terrorists in close-quarter combat and via aircraft strikes.

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

MAY 10, 2024 10:09 Updated: MAY 10, 2024 10:40

In the past day, troops of the 162nd Division and Givati Brigade operated in the Eastern part of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, where they found underground tunnel shafts, the military said on Friday.

In the area of the Rafah crossing, on the Palestinian side, troops of the 401st Brigade eliminated terrorist squads in close-quarter combat and via aircraft strikes.

The IDF added that Israel Air Force aircraft were also used to strike several areas in Rafah, from which rockets and mortar shells had been launched onto Israeli territory, including the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Shortly after the IDF published this statement, sirens sounded in two localities in the Gaza Border Communities. No injuries or damage were reported at this time.

Later on Friday, sirens sounded twice in Kerem Shalom, following which the military said two launches from the area of Rafah had been identified and successfully intercepted.

IDF operates in Zeitoun to destroy terror infrastructure

In parallel, the IDF said troops of the Nahal Brigade and the 2nd Brigade carried out activities in Zeitoun in the center of the Strip.

Soldiers destroyed terror infrastructure and eliminated terrorists in the area. In addition to the ground activities, the military stated fighter jets had struck terrorists and Hamas terror targets. Of particular note was a booby-trapped building in which many weapons.

In addition, throughout the Gaza Strip, fighter jets also struck Hamas targets, such as buildings used for anti-tank fire and tunnel shafts.

In the center of the strip, IDF troops identified a terror squad exiting a weapon warehouse and moving toward them. The squad was subsequently attacked by an aircraft. However, shortly after, the storage facility and an additional terrorist from the squad were attacked by fighter jets and helicopters.

The IDF said that in total, in the past day, IAF jets and aircraft struck and destroyed some 40 terror targets throughout the Strip. The targets included military buildings, terror squads, observing positions, and additional military infrastructure.

Hezbollah launches rockets, drones at Galilee

Rocket lands in border town causing damage, fire, while Iran-backed terror group claims responsibility for drone strike on Metula; Arab media says military base in Safed also hit hours after IDF kills 4 in targeted attack near Tyre

Yair Kraus, Yoav Zitun, Lior Ben Ari|Yesterday | 12:21

Hezbollah on Thursday targeted northern Israel with attack drones and rocket fire with at least one rocket landing in the border town of Shlomi in the Western Galilee, causing a brush fire.

"The rocket fell not 50 meters from houses," a local resident said. "The mountain was on fire and the blast was felt in near-by homes." Windows shattered but no injuries were reported in the attack.

Hezbollah said it had struck Metula in the Upper Galilee with a suicide drone while Lebanese and Saudi media said a military base in Safed was also hit. Intercepts were seen in the sky over the city.

The IDF said two drones were intercepted before crossing the border from Lebanon. Strikes were carried out during the day, targeting Hezbollah infrastructure.

The military also said at least five Hezbollah terrorists were killed in IDF attacks, four of them reportedly died in a targeted attack on a car near the coastal city of Tyre. Eye witnesses told reporters that more than one missile was fired in the attack.

According to the IDF since Sunday, forces attacked some 75 Hezbollah targets, 20 of them on Wednesday alone.

U.S. Pauses Weapons Shipment to Israel; WAIVES Weapons Purchase-Sanctions on Qatar, Lebanon, and Iraq

Hal Turner World May 10, 2024 Hits: 4405

Much ado has been made of the US specifically pausing a weapons shipments to Israel . . . there's more to the story.

"Specifically, we [the US] paused one shipment of weapons consisting of 1800 2000-pound bombs, and 1700 500-pound bombs," Pentagon Press Secretary Pat Ryder said during a press briefing.

Earlier Illegitimate President Biden said in an interview that the US will go as far as to stop the flow of weapons to Israel should the PM Netanyahu war cabinet decide on a major military operation in the Gaza Strip.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed that the US has paused one shipment of "high payload munitions" to Israel and is "reviewing near-term" shipments amid Israel’s heightened offensive in Rafah.

It remains unclear whether the suspension of weapons deliveries to Israel will make any difference and cause Israel to call off its Rafah operation. Netanyahu has repeatedly stated that his country stands ready to proceed with its military plans no matter what Washington or any other country says or does.

On Monday, Israel started a military operation in the eastern parts of Rafah and took control of the Gaza side of the Rafah crossing with Egypt. Hamas said that it had agreed to the provisions of the ceasefire deal proposed by Egypt and Qatar mediators, but Netanyahu called the truce deal unacceptable. Over a million people are believed to be sheltering in the city.

SANCTIONS LIFTED ON ARAB COUNTRIES

Earlier this week, the Biden regime also . . . . ready for this . . . . granted WAIVERS from Economic Sanctions, to Qatar, Iraq, and Lebanon so they can resume buying . . . WEAPONS!

The Waiver states it is intended to apply until April of next year (2025).

So not only has the Biden regime cut off arms shipments to Israel, it has granted permission for arms sales to Qatar (Hamas ally), Lebanon (Hezbollah ally) and to Iraq!

It's almost as if they actually WANT a bloodbath taking place over in the Middle East.

Security Scandal: Chinese Drone Hovers Over US Nuclear-Powered Supercarrier In Japan

by Tyler Durden Thursday, May 09, 2024 - 10:40 PM

A major security scandal is developing at Japan's Yokosuka Naval Base, where drone footage was recently filmed above an American nuclear-powered supercarrier without any activated anti-drone systems to intercept hostile unmanned aerial vehicles. This comes as loitering munitions, also known as kamikaze drones, are the hottest weapon on the modern battlefield in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

X account "这是我小号4", translated in English from Chinese as "This is my trumpet number 4," uploaded aerial videos and images of Yokosuka Naval Base. Some of the footage was directly over the USS Ronald Reagan.

The X account wrote in English, "For anyone who thinks it's fake...." They attached a screenshot of the drone's flight path of the naval yard on a map to the post.

For anyone who thinks its fake pic.twitter.com/PdfwHAnwqj 

这是我小号4 (@Xiao_Hao_4) April 2, 2024

The latest data from intel research firm Strategic Forecasting shows USS Ronald Reagan was recently moored at Yokosuka Naval Base. Footage from the drone was taken in early April.

The account posted additional images of the naval yard and US warships.

Where are the anti-drone systems to guard against this type of aerial security breach?

pic.twitter.com/5Qx1CLQbIn

这是我小号4 (@Xiao_Hao_4) April 4, 2024

In English again, the account said, "It took a month for the Japanese army to just realize" The person was referring to a news story by the Japan Broadcasting Corporation, also known as NHK, covering his activity on social media about posting drone videos of US and Japanese warships.

It took a month for the Japanese army to just realize https://t.co/TH6mWxQZV8 

这是我小号4 (@Xiao_Hao_4) May 8, 2024

NHK cited Ministry of Defense officials who said drone videos were "likely genuine." Other sources we spoke with confirmed the videos are likely real and noted the possibility that this could've been a Chinese-made DJI drone.

Why didn't the US and or Japan activate electromagnetic counter-measures against the drone?

The next question: Did a Chinese spy - pilot this drone?

7 Numbers That Clearly Reveal The Direction That America Has Chosen

By Michael Snyder/End of the American Dream May 03 2024

Over the past several decades, America's culture has been transformed at a pace that is absolutely breathtaking. When I was growing up, I was convinced that I believed in a shared set of national values that most other Americans also embraced. But in our day and age those values have been discarded and now people that see the world the way that I do are clearly not in the majority any longer.

I know that a lot of people out there may not want to hear that our national values have been turned upside down, but it is the truth. Those that sought to "fundamentally transform" this country have succeeded, and at this point "American values" are vastly different from the "American values" that I cherished as a young boy. The following are 7 numbers that clearly reveal the direction that America has chosen...

#1 There is more political chaos in our nation than there has ever been in my entire lifetime, and more than 40 percent of U.S. voters actually believe that a "second civil war" is likely within the next five years...

More than four-in-ten US voters say the country is likely to get ripped apart in a second civil war within five years, a shocking new survey reveals.

The Rasmussen Reports poll shows that 41 percent eye a civil conflict, compared to 49 percent who say it's not likely. Another 10 percent said they were not sure.

That amounts to 106 million US adults saying civil war is on the horizon.

The survey comes against a backdrop of mounting violence on US college campuses, where pro-Palestine protestors clash with law enforcers, conservatives, some Jewish students and others.

#2 According to a recent Gallup survey, only 36 percent of Americans approve of Israel's military campaign in Gaza...

After narrowly backing Israel's military action in Gaza in November, Americans now oppose the campaign by a solid margin. Fifty-five percent currently disapprove of Israel's actions, while 36% approve.

The latest results are from a March 1-20 survey. The Israel-Hamas war has continued for five months and has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Palestinians and over 1,000 Israelis. Major parts of Gaza have been destroyed, complicating efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to Palestinian civilians still living there. The United Nations and international community, including the Biden administration, have called for a cease-fire, but the two warring sides have been unable to agree.

#3 65 percent of Americans do not approve of the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade...

About two-thirds (65%) oppose the 2022 Supreme Court decision, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, and 34% approve, numbers that have remained effectively unchanged in CNN's polling across the nearly two years since the ruling. Those who strongly disapprove of the decision continue to outnumber those who strongly approve by a more than 2-to-1 margin.

A 69% majority who disapprove of overturning Roe, including 82% of those who strongly disapprove, say that federal politicians should work to pass laws ensuring national abortion access. Those who support the ruling largely say federal politicians shouldn't take action on the issue: 59% say laws on abortion should be left up to the states, with 29% in favor of further restrictions to abortion access nationwide. New national restrictions are supported by just about one-quarter of Republicans, White Evangelical Christians and those who describe themselves as conservative.

#4 More than 20 percent of Generation Z adults (22.3 percent to be specific) now identify as LGBTQ+...

Overall, each younger generation is about twice as likely as the generation that preceded it to identify as LGBTQ+. More than one in five Gen Z adults, ranging in age from 18 to 26 in 2023, identify as LGBTQ+, as do nearly one in 10 millennials (aged 27 to 42). The percentage drops to less than 5% of Generation X, 2% of baby boomers and 1% of the Silent Generation.

Bisexuality is the most common LGBTQ+ status among Generation Z, millennials and Generation X. Fifteen percent of all Generation Z adults -- representing more than two-thirds of those with an LGBTQ+ identification -- are bisexual.

#5 According to the Daily Mail, the number of transgender troops in the U.S. Army has doubled since 2020...

The Pentagon has spent more than $26million treating transgender troops since 2020, official records show.

The number of US army staff with gender dysphoria has doubled in that time -- from around 1,800 to 3,700, according to DoD data seen by DailyMail.com.

In the past three years, $17.5m in taxpayer money was spent on psychotherapy for trans service people and $1.5m went towards hormone drugs.

A further $7.6m funded gender-affirming surgeries, including facial tweaks to make a recruit more masculine or feminine, and the removal or creation of breasts and genitals.

#6 By a vote of 692 to 51, the United Methodist Church has voted to approve LGBTQ clergy and same sex weddings in their churches...

The United Methodist Church, one of the largest Protestant denominations in the U.S., has voted to repeal its ban on LGBTQ clergy as well as prohibitions on its ministers from officiating at same-sex weddings.

Delegates overwhelmingly approved the changes, 692 to 51, during the United Methodist Church's General Conference.

The meeting is taking place this week in Charlotte, N.C. after the pandemic delayed the 2020 General Conference where these decisions had been slated to take place.

#7 Only 3.6 million babies were born in the U.S. last year, and the birth rate is now at the lowest level ever recorded...

The birth rate in the US has declined to a new low, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The figures show that fewer than 3.6 million babies were born in the US last year, the lowest amount since 1979 and equating to the lowest fertility rate EVER recorded.

The CDC analysed the 2023 data and found that the birth rate is down 2 percent on the previous year.

If you go back to 1960, the average U.S. woman gave birth to 3.65 children during her lifetime.

Today, that number has fallen all the way down to 1.6.

But we need a birth rate of at least 2.1 just to keep replacing ourselves.

If we didn't have so much immigration going on, our population would be steadily falling.

In my latest book entitled "Chaos", I have an entire chapter about the population collapse that is happening in wealthy nations all over the industrialized world.

It is often said that children are the future of our society, but we have greatly devalued marriage and parenthood.

Meanwhile, birth rates are still very high in many nations in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Given enough time, those that are willing to multiply would become increasingly powerful and those that are not willing to multiply would become less powerful.

But the fact that we aren't reproducing ourselves is just one of the existential problems that we are facing.

At this point we live in an upside down society that has rejected the values that this nation was founded upon.

If we stay on this path, there isn't going to be a future for America, and that is the truth.

Canada To Construct World’s First 2SLGBTQI+ National Monument In Ottawa

ago 15 hours

by Jacob M. Thompson

4 Comments

Construction has begun on a new national monument in the Canadian capital of Ottawa to honor the 2SLGTBQI+ community, which boasts to be the first in the world.

The project will cost $13 million (CAD) entrusted the LGBT Purge Fund that approved the design of the monument, which is basically a large cylinder with a bung of holes taken out of it. It’s called Thunderhead, and it’s being built by the Ottawa River by Portage Bridge and Wellington Street.

The group has been working on getting designs approved and funded since 2022, providing some mock-ups of what the final design should look like.

The central sculpture, reminiscent of a thunderhead cloud clad in mirrored tiles, now has larger openings and simplified forms. It continues to embody the strength, activism and hope of 2SLGBTQI+ communities.

The group says

The group got its name from a referred time period during the 1950s through the mid-1990s where thousands public officials and military members were harassed and expelled from their positions because they supported sodomy or were sodomites.

Michelle Douglas, executive director of the LGBT Purge Fund, who was honorably discharged from the Canadian Armed Forces in 1989, said in a statement:

“I loved serving my country. I was so proud of it, but I was fired because I am a lesbian and it was a difficult period in my life.

“To see a monument now being built that pays, in part, tribute to those pretty difficult days. It’s very emotional and powerful for me. It’s really a beacon of hope and a place for people to come and reflect on the past, which has had lots of moments of discrimination and oppression.”

Other artists in Canada’s 2SLGTBQI+ community plan to contribute, such as Drag king Cyril Cinder among many.

AUTHOR COMMENTARY

Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

Indeed, Canada continues to seal its fate with the construction of this stupid looking idol, as they flaunt their pride unabashed, as they gallivant with their mockery of the rainbow, the very thing that is token and reminder of the fierce judgment on an incredibly evil, wicked world that hated the Lord.

[7] Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? [8] Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? [9] For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? [10] Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. (1 Corinthians 9:7-10).

Gunman arrested after trying to shoot Pennsylvania pastor during church sermon in wild caught-on-camera moment

By Social Links for Emily Crane  Published May 6, 2024, 7:44 a.m. ET

A gunman has been arrested after pulling a firearm on a Pennsylvania pastor over the weekend in the middle of a sermon in a terrifying caught-on-camera ordeal.

Bernard Polite, 26, was nabbed after trying to shoot pastor Glenn Germany at the Jesus’ Dwelling Place Church in North Braddock on Sunday afternoon, cops said.

A terrifying live-stream of the ordeal showed the pastor ducking for cover as the perp brandished the weapon.

I’m thankful to God that I’m still here because he definitely pulled the trigger,” Germany told WTAE.

“I started to begin to preach, and all of a sudden, from my left-hand side, I saw him move from the back to the front of the church, and he set up in the front corner of the church and smiled at me.

All of a sudden, I just saw a gun pointing right at me. And at that point, all I could try to do is run for cover.”

The church’s deacon, Clarence McCallister, was filmed leaping across and tackling Polite in the immediate aftermath. He and the pastor then disarmed the suspect and pinned him down until cops arrived.

Germany, whose 14-year-old daughter was in the church at the time, said the suspect later revealed to him in custody that he’d seen “spirits” in his mind telling him to open fire.

This guy was just dealing with spirits he said, and he came in and wanted to shoot somebody,” Germany said. “He said you ducked a taco today, that’s what he told me, and I guess that’s slang for you ducked a bullet.”

He actually apologized to me. I told him ‘I forgive you and want you to know I love you’,” the pastor revealed in a separate interview on NBC’s “Today.”

Polite is facing a slew of charges, including aggravated assault and attempted homicide.

Meanwhile, Allegheny County Police are investigating after the body of a 56-year-old man was discovered in the home where Polite lived — less than half a mile away from the church.

It wasn’t immediately clear when the victim – identified as Derek Polite – was gunned down.

Cops haven’t disclosed if they have a suspect in that shooting.

The exact relationship between Polite and the victim wasn’t immediately known but local outlets reported the church gunman lived there with his uncle.

Floods in southern Brazil kill at least 75 people over 7 days, with 103 people missing

By Associated Press Published May 5, 2024, 2:32 a.m. ET

RIO DE JANEIRO — Massive floods in Brazil’s southern Rio Grande do Sul state have killed at least 75 people over the last seven days, and another 103 were reported missing, local authorities said Sunday.

At least 155 people were injured, while damage from the rains forced more than 88,000 people from their homes. Approximately 16,000 took refuge in schools, gymnasiums and other temporary shelters.

The floods left a wake of devastation, including landslides, washed-out roads and collapsed bridges across the state.

Operators reported electricity and communications cuts. More than 800,000 people are without a water supply, according to the civil defense agency, which cited figures from water company Corsan.

A rescue team pulled an elderly man in serious medical condition into a helicopter from a remote area in the Bento Gonçalves municipality, according to footage from military firefighters. Torrents of brown water poured over a nearby dam.

On Saturday evening, residents in the town of Canoas stood up to their shoulders in muddy water and formed a human chain to pull boats carrying people to safety, according to video footage shared by local UOL news network.

The Guaiba river reached a record level of 17.5 feet on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. local time, surpassing levels seen during a historic 1941 deluge, when the river reached 4.76 meters.

“I repeat and insist: the devastation to which we are being subjected is unprecedented,” state Gov. Eduardo Leite said Sunday morning. He had previously said the state will need a “kind of ‘Marshall Plan’ to be rebuilt.”

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva visited Rio Grande do Sul for a second time on Sunday, accompanied by Defense Minister José Múcio, Finance Minister Fernando Haddad and Environment Minister Marina Silva, among others.

The leftist leader and his team surveyed the flooded streets of Porto Alegre from a helicopter.

“We need to stop running behind disasters. We need to see in advance what calamities might happen and we need to work,” Lula told journalists afterwards.

During Sunday mass at the Vatican, Pope Francis said he was praying for the state’s population. “May the Lord welcome the dead and comfort their families and those who had to abandon their homes,” he said.

The downpour started Monday and was expected to last through Sunday.

In some areas, such as valleys, mountain slopes and cities, more than 11.8 inches of rain fell in less than a week, according to Brazil’s National Institute of Meteorology, known by the Portuguese acronym INMET, on Thursday.

The heavy rains were the fourth such environmental disaster in the state in a year, following floods in July, September and November 2023 that killed 75 people.

Weather across South America is affected by the climate phenomenon El Niño, a periodic, naturally occurring event that warms surface waters in the Equatorial Pacific region.

In Brazil, El Niño has historically caused droughts in the north and intense rainfall in the south.

This year, the impacts of El Niño have been particularly dramatic, with a historic drought in the Amazon. Scientists say extreme weather is happening more frequently due to human-caused climate change.

These tragedies will continue to happen, increasingly worse and more frequent,” said Suely Araújo, a public policy coordinator at the Climate Observatory, a network of dozens of environmental and social groups.

Brazil needs to adjust to the effects of climate change, she said in a Friday statement, referring to a process known as adaptation.

Ex-Satanist Turned Christian Reveals What is 'Behind the Curtains' of 'Devil's Battle Plan'

Talia Wise 05-03-2024

The co-founder of a Satanic movement in South Africa who had a supernatural encounter with Jesus Christ and renounced the occult says he is now on a mission to equip Christians to "handle and understand the devil's battle plan" in the last days.

Riaan Swiegelaar, a former reverend at the South African Satanic Church (SASC), stepped down from his position in May 2022 but recently revealed on social media why he has decided now is the time to reveal what is "behind the curtains" of the satanic church.

***Please sign up for CBN Newsletters and download the CBN News app to ensure you keep receiving the latest news from a uniquely Christian perspective.***

"I don't feel that our war is against physical people. I feel our war is in spirit and what God has revealed to me is that we are in a time where it is crucial," he explained. "We are living in the time of (the book of) Revelation. So it is time to put this information out in a very respectful way," he shared.

"We will equip spiritual warriors to handle and understand the devil's battle plan," he added.

As CBN News previously reported, Swiegelaar was involved in some form of Christian ministry 20 years ago before becoming an atheist. He then turned to Satanism in 2018.

"I got involved with Satanism because at the time it resonated with me, being very broken and sad without realizing it. I think the reason a lot of people resonate with Satanism is they come from a very broken place... that's the one thing we all have in common," he shared in a video in 2022.

Swiegelaar explained that he renounced Satanism after experiencing the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.

"I've never known unconditional love in my whole life and up to today, there's only four Christians in my whole life that have shown me what unconditional love is. I want to thank those four people. Words cannot express what you have done for me," he said.

"To show someone love is everything. It is not a simple thing. You have showed me everything. You have showed me the love of Christ. I have seen it in you," Swiegelaar added.

Swiegelaar updated his followers in April that he is now involved in deliverance ministry and helping people get out of the occult. He added that six members of his former organization have left Satanism.

He also explained that he was legally barred from speaking publicly for the last two years.

"When I left and resigned from the African Satanic Church in May 2022, at first, I had to keep quiet for a whole month to put certain things in place," he explained. "I also signed an NDA, a non-disclosure agreement, with the organization as to not to disclose certain people's identities, certain businesses, certain operations, especially in South Africa that was linked with Satanism in this country."

Swiegelaar adds that since he left he has received 32 "cease and desist" orders from attorneys.

But the good news is the majority of the founding members of the Satanic church there have left Satanism and have worked with Swiegelaar to deregister the South African Satanic Church (SASC).

"Initially when we started the process there was opposition and there was a certain individual who funded a legal team for the African Satanic Church to prevent this from happening," Swiegelaar explained. "Between January and March of this year, they have stopped opposing the process to deregister the (Satanic) church."

He added that even with the dissolution of the Satanic entity, there is still work to be done.

"This by no means means that Satanism doesn't exist anymore," Swiegelaar expressed. "It certainly does. Many groups have formed in the meantime and are still practicing."

The South African native says it is "all in God's timing" for him to create content now that will teach people how to overcome schemes of the enemy – especially young people.

"I no longer have an official NDA in place and I'm allowed to make content again and post videos," Swiegelaar shared.

"My intent is not to expose individuals or to make their identities known. My intent is to inform the public of what Satanism is and what is really going on in our country and in the world and also how certain people, especially the youth are being targeted to be involved in the occult and Satanism and what the satanic agenda really is," he added.

The Absence Of The Rapture—And Related Topics—From Our Churches Today, Is A Great Tragedy!

By Jan Markell February 28, 2023

I recently read a passionate article by Jonathan Brentner on the divorce of Rapture theology from the gospel and from pulpits. I so resonated with the main points he made. The absence of this topic—and related topics—from our churches today, is a great tragedy!

When Rapture discussion ended some thirty years ago in the church and elsewhere, so did discussion of the Millennium, Israel’s key end-time role, the trend toward the Tribulation, the building of the third temple in Jerusalem, the prominence of end-time deception, the rush to a cashless society and Central Bank Digital Currency, and so much more!

It became almost impossible to understand the times from a biblical and prophetic perspective! And right at a time when people began asking earnest questions as they observe the turmoil of our times.

I am taking a few talking points from the Brentner article below:

Somewhere in the past, a tragic divorce occurred; theologians decided we must separate the return of Jesus for His church from the proclamation of the gospel. The results of this untimely divorce have led to a dearth of understanding among believers regarding Jesus’ appearing and the joyful anticipation that comes with such awareness.

Confused believers hear that they will surely die rather than meet Jesus in the air, which directly contradicts the New Testament in passages such as 1 Corinthians 15:51 and 1 Thessalonians 4:17. The Apostle Paul believed there would be many saints alive at the time of the Rapture, but many preachers today disagree with him on this matter.

The divorce of the Rapture from the gospel has resulted in a near blackout of teaching about our “blessed hope” in churches today. This negatively impacts new believers as well as seasoned saints as it leaves them ill-prepared to live in a fear-ridden society because such teaching provides no prophetic context into which they can place the violence and lawlessness of our day or the push for a New World Order.

The new converts in Thessalonica were so fixated on their soon departure from the earth that when some in their midst died, they grieved unnecessarily thinking they would miss out on the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:13-19). In response, Paul emphasized the primary place of the “dead in Christ” during the rapture telling his converts that Jesus would resurrect them first at His appearing (4:16).

Another sorrowful result of this divorce is this: It takes the eyes of believers away from their ultimate hope at a time when they need such a focus. Instead, their eyes remain focused on earthly aspirations.

Very few pastors talk about what happens at the moment Jesus returns for His church (1 Cor. 15:51-55; Phil. 3:20-21; 1 Thess. 4:16-17). Even those that believe these things never ever mention the believers’ hope of immortal bodies for fear that talking about the Rapture might hurt attendance.

As I wrote in a previous article, What Happened to My Church? someone made a conscious decision some 30-40 years ago that we should have a “new way of doing church”, although many members and attendees agreed there was nothing wrong with old ways of doing church. Terms began being used like “purpose-driven,” “seeker-sensitive,” “church-growth movement,” “postmodernism”, “Emergent”, and more.

Joel Osteen and his fellow travelers began telling us we could have our best life now as Christians. Who would want to long for His appearing with that in mind?

People started to hear about love, unity and tolerance. We must be known for what we agree on, not what we disagree on. Everything and everyone must be accepted. Aberrations must be accepted. People loved having their ears tickled. They would be encouraged to “feel good” and have their self-esteem built up. Sound doctrine was being set aside.

The saving of souls was being set aside for the entertainment factor and social justice causes. It seemed that many in the church no longer cared that so many were on their way to hell! What an offensive, intolerant thought. But clearly sound doctrine will separate and divide so we must tread lightly in that area. Relevant issues have vanished from most pulpits.

Here in 2023, all of this would be called “wokism”! And a marvelous cure for wokism would be a focus on the fact that the King is coming—perhaps today. Pulpits that are focusing on this glorious good news, are growing exponentially, and don’t have to worry about church growth!

Chinese scientists create mutant Ebola virus to skirt around biosafety rules - and it causes horrific symptoms and kills group of hamsters

The hamsters infected with the constructed virus died within two to three days

The results could be a breakthrough in using animals to safely study Ebola

READ MORE: Experts reveal what virus could cause the next pandemic

By Angely Mercado For Dailymail.Com and Stacy Liberatore For Dailymail.com

Published: 07:39 EDT, 6 May 2024 | Updated: 08:37 EDT, 6 May 2024

Chinese scientists have engineered a virus with parts of Ebola in a lab that killed a group of hamsters.

A team of researchers at Hebei Medical University used a contagious disease of livestock and added a protein found in Ebola, which allows the virus to infect cells and spread throughout the human body.

The group of hamsters that received the lethal injection 'developed severe systemic diseases similar to those observed in human Ebola patients,' including multi-organ failure,' the study shared.

One particularly horrific symptom saw the infected hamsters develop secretions in their eyes, which impaired their vision and scabbed over the surface of the eyeballs

While the experiment may spark fears of another lab leak, the researchers say their goal was to find the right animal models that can safely mimic Ebola symptoms in a lab setting.

The study suggested that infected hamsters could be a decent model for studying the spread and treatment of Ebola in the future.

Ebola needs to be handled in Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) facilities which are special high security laboratories, while many are only BLS-2.

To work around this in a lower security setting, scientists used a different virus called vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), which they engineered to carry part of the Ebola virus that's called glycoprotein (GP) that plays a crucial role in helping the virus enter and infect cells of its host.

The team studied five female and five male hamsters that were all three weeks old.

All female Syrian hamsters showed decreased rectal temperature and up to 18 percent weight loss - they all died between two and three days.

The five male hamsters lost 15 percent weight and succumbed to the disease at no later than three and a half days.

However, two male hamsters survived and gained 20 percent more weight than pre-infection.

The team harvested organs from the dead animals, finding the virus accumulated in the heart, liver, spleen, lung, kidney, stomach, intestines and brain tissues.

The highest levels were found in the liver and lowest in the brain.

'It is a sign that 3-week-old Syrian hamsters infected with VSV-EBOV/GP have the possibility of playing a role in the study of optic nerve disorders caused by EVD,' the team shared in the study, which was published in the Chinese journal Virologica Sinica.

The team concluded that the infected hamsters showed a rapid onset of symptoms, shock liver, systemic infection, and developed severe systemic diseases similar to those observed in human EBOV patients.

They also noted that the experiments provided a rapid preclinical evaluation of medical countermeasures against Ebola under BLS-2 conditions, concluding the study was a success.

The last major outbreak of the virus occurred from 2014 to 2016 in several West African countries was deadly, a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) said.

During those two years more than 28,600 people were reportedly infected, and about 11,300 died.

The virus spread from West Africa to Europe and even over to the United States.

'The surrogate virus and matched hamster EVD [Ebola virus disease] model will improve the security and economy of the research in the EBOV field,' the researchers wrote in the study.

Testing infectious viruses is necessary for breakthroughs in treatment and prevention.

But lab leaks happen, and these incidents could lead to the spread of to those outside of the lab.

Experts have confirmed that respiratory viruses – which are spared via coughing and sneezing – are more likely to spread widely through a population.

Data released this March revealed that lab leak incidents occur every year and included the release of controlled pathogens like tuberculosis and anthrax.

There are anywhere from 70 to 100 releases were recorded every year.

However Dr Richard Ebright, a chemical biologist at Rutgers University in New Jersey told DailyMail.com that its unlikely that a lab leak involving VSV would lead to widespread infection in the public.

'[It] will be imperative to verify that the novel chimeric virus does not infect and replicate in human cells, and does not pose risk of infectivity, transmissibility, and pathogenicity in humans, before proceeding with studies at biosafety level 2,' he said.

Warren Buffett reveals the news no American taxpayer wants to hear as the government tackles rising debt - here's what it means for you

The declaration comes as the US is hard-pressed to address rising fiscal deficits

The national debt recently hit $34 trillion, a sum about as big as the US economy

Citing certain financial factors, he said a federal tax hike is likely on the horizon

By Alex Hammer For Dailymail.Com

Published: 01:43 EDT, 6 May 2024 | Updated: 09:02 EDT, 6 May 2024

Warren Buffett has said he expects the US government to increase taxes rather than reduce spending as the country struggles with its mounting national debt.

The declaration, delivered Saturday, comes as the US is hard-pressed to address widening fiscal deficits, and as the national debt recently topped $34 trillion - an amount nearly as big as the entire US economy.

More concerning is the fact the Fed and other money-minded officials have no plan in sight, paving the way for the Berkshire Hathaway boss's unsettling prediction.

The 'Oracle of Omaha' aired his prediction at his hallowed hedge fund's annual shareholder meeting attended by some of the top CEOs in the country.

There, the conglomerate reported its collection of businesses generated some $11.2 billion of operating earnings, up 39 percent from the year before.

Despite those results being a sign of a relatively robust economy, the 93-year-old who is valued at more than $131billion said he believes a federal tax hike is on the horizon.

'I think higher taxes are likely,' he said, pointing to how the Congressional Budget Office has estimated in its latest long-term budget projections federal deficits will rise to 8.5 percent of GDP in fiscal 2054 from the 5.5 percent seen today.

'They may decide that some day they don't want the fiscal deficit to be this large because that has some important consequences,' Buffett added.

'So they may not want to decrease spending and they may decide they'll take a larger percentage of what we own, and we'll pay it.'

The unprecedented problem comes as US budget deficits are expected to dissipate if, and when, tax cuts introduced in 2017 are renewed next year.

But, given current market conditions, there rate cuts remain uncertain, and inflation also remains stubbornly high.

These factors led to Buffet's Berkshire reducing its stake in Apple, one of the many blue chip manufacturers, home builders, insurance companies or retailers in its stable.

As a result, Berkshire reported a $135.4 billion holding in the iPhone maker at the end of the first quarter, down from $174.3 billion seen in December.

The move quickly became a topic of discussion as the meeting unfolded in real time, with Apple CEO Tim Cook one of the high-powered figures in the room.

Despite the more than $40billion sale, Buffett assured the crowd of thousands in Nebraska, Apple is an 'even better' stock than American Express and Coca-Cola, two of the other 'wonderful' businesses in Berkshire's portfolio.

He said unless something changes dramatically, Apple will continue to hold the distinction of being Berkshire's biggest position - glowing praise coming from one of the most respected minds in the country when it comes to finance.

He added the iPhone, released in 2007, was one of the greatest products of all time, and hinted that tax implications played a part in the sale. Asked whether he was worried about the rapidly rising US debt, Buffett, who continues to serve as chair despite his age, said what really concerns him was the fiscal deficit was now larger than the Treasuries market, which itself nearly $27 trillion.

Pointing to the US dollar's place as the world's foremost reserve currency, he theorized: 'My best speculation is that US debt will be acceptable for a very long time because there's not much alternative.'

He added while the main focus right now may be on the Fed's next steps to quell inflation following a litany of interest rates hikes, the bank's looming fiscal policies could be the real issue.

'Jay Powell is ... a very, very wise man,' he said, referring to the central bank's top official. 'But he doesn't control fiscal policy.'

Throughout the day, Buffett also spoke about his age and the prospect of a successor.

When asked, he assured shareholders the company's future was in good hands, and said Greg Abel - his appointed successor and vice chairman of Berkshire's non-insurance operations - should take over capital allocation whenever the need arises.

'When you've got somebody like Greg and Ajit, why settle for me?' Buffett said, referring to Ajit Jain, Berkshire's vice chair of insurance operations.

'It has worked out extremely well.'

Buffett also cited the changing of the guard that occurred a few years back Apple, when Cook took over for longtime boss and iPhone visionary Steve Jobs.

'Buffett made it very clear that the structure of the firm is in place,' J. Dennis Jean-Jacques, founder and chief investment officer at Ocean Park Investments, told Bloomberg of Buffets words Sunday.

'It's going to become more important for shareholders to ensure the board of directors and managers keep the structure in tact - they are smart people and are not afraid to write to the CEO to let them know things are going wayward.'

'Please Pray for Us': Deadly Flooding, 15 Tornadoes Ravage Parts of the Midwest

Wendy Griffith  05-07-2024

Dangerous storms swept across the Plains overnight, ravaging parts of the Midwest.

In Bartlesville, Oklahoma a monster tornado touched down destroying several homes and businesses. Employees working at a Hampton Inn caught the horrifying moment the storm hit the hotel.

In Barnsdall, Oklahoma, one family was somehow able to escape their collapsed home after a terrifying tornado ripped through their neighborhood.

Also in Barnsdall, a nursing home was hit. The 38-bed facility wrote on social media, "Please pray for us."

All the residents were accounted for with no injuries or deaths, but they had to be temporarily moved to a football field because of a gas leak.

The National Weather Service reported at least 15 tornadoes overnight, including at least 7 in northern Oklahoma.

Further south, in Texas, people are starting to clean up as the waters recede after major flooding from heavy rain over the weekend. Hundreds of people in the Houston area had to be rescued from their homes.

Governor Greg Abbott announced at least three deaths due to the severe storms, including a child swept away by floodwaters. Ninety-one counties declared a state disaster.

Also throughout the Midwest, thousands of power outages were reported.

Forecasters expect the severe storms to weaken slightly as they move into the Tennessee and Ohio River Valley today.

Giant hailstones destroy over 15 000 homes in Manipur, India

A severe hailstorm struck Manipur, northeast India, on May 5, 2024, resulting in the death of one person and the destruction of over 15 000 homes and other structures. The storm, characterized by heavy rains, giant hail, and strong winds, wreaked havoc across several districts, leaving extensive structural and agricultural damage in its wake.

Chief Minister N. Biren Singh reported that 15 425 houses, numerous vehicles, and other properties were severely damaged due to the powerful storm on Sunday, May 5, which included intense rains and giant hail (7+ cm) accompanied by strong winds.

The districts of Imphal West and Imphal East were the hardest hit, with 6 053 and 5 600 homes damaged, respectively. Additional damages were reported in Bishnupur, Thoubal, Churachandpur, Kangpokpi, Ukhrul, and other areas, totaling the destruction of over 15 000 homes.

The hailstorm also left many vehicles with cracked windows or severe damage due to the size of the hailstones and the strength of the winds.

In addition, at least six churches in the hilly districts suffered significant damage, including roofs being torn off by strong winds.

Severe agricultural damage was reported, along with a significant toll on livestock.”

In response to the extensive damage and to aid those affected, the state government opened 42 relief camps providing temporary shelter and distributed essential relief materials through Deputy Commissioners. To mitigate the economic impact, Chief Minister Singh announced measures to prevent price hikes in roofing and construction materials and confirmed that compensation would be provided for the loss of livestock, crops, and vegetables suffered by farmers.

The education department, citing the widespread destruction and the potential for further severe weather, decided to close all schools—government-aided, private, and central—on May 6 and 7.

The Meteorological Department has issued an orange alert, forecasting heavy to very heavy rains across several northeastern states, including Manipur, until May 7. This alert comes as parts of the valley areas in Imphal East and Imphal West districts were blanketed with 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12.7 cm) of ice, covering the landscape in what resembled thick snow.

The “Soft Landing” Lie: A Global Economic Slowdown Is Already Underway

May 8, 2024 No Comments

By Brandon Smith

If people have learned anything from the past few years of Ivy League elites and TV talking heads feeding them economic predictions, I hope they finally understand that the “experts” are usually wrong and that alternative analysts have a far better track record. Whenever establishment economists make a a call the opposite generally turns out to be true.

By extension, alternative economic predictions are usually well ahead of the curve – What we talk about might be labeled “doom mongering” or “conspiracy theory” today. In three years or less it will be treated as common knowledge and the mainstream “experts” will claim that they “saw it coming all along” while taking credit for financial calls they never made.

This has been a long running pattern and it’s something those of us in the alternative media have come to expect.

For my part, I warned for years about the threat of the impending stagflationary crisis which ultimately struck hard in the “post-pandemic” US. The establishment gatekeepers denied such a thing was possible. When it happened, they claimed it was “transitory.” Now, they argue that a soft landing is imminent and there’s nothing to fear from trillions in helicopter money being pumped into the system. They claim nothing of significance will change.

I also predicted that the Fed would create a Catch-22 scenario in which interest rates are raised into economic weakness while inflationary pressures expand. I suggested that the central bank would keep rates higher for far longer than mainstream analysts claimed. This is exactly what has happened. My position is simple – The Federal Reserve is a suicide bomber.

Who are you going to believe? Independent economists who have proven correct time and time again? Or, the Ivory Tower guys who have been consistently wrong? I’ll say this: If success in economics was actually based on merit and correct analysis, people like Paul Krugman or Janet Yellen would have been out of work a long time ago.

As for the ongoing narrative of a soft landing, the question I have to ask is HOW exactly they are going to make that happen? First, let’s clarify why central bankers are the problem (along with the governments they covertly influence)…

Central Banks Are At The Core Of Economic Troubles

There are only two logical reasons for central bank induced inflation: To hide the effects of a massive deflationary slowdown caused by too much debt, or, to deliberately trigger a currency collapse. Both motives could apply at the same time.

Central bankers don’t just facilitate this inflation at the behest of governments, they tell governments what to expect and what to promote to the public. Anyone that claims otherwise has an agenda. Central banks write their own policy and control their own mechanics. Governments have no say whatsoever in their operations, as Alan Greenspan once openly admitted.

The reality is, governments go begging hat in hand to central bankers and the banks decide whether or not to give them that sweet stimulus nectar. Politicians engage in collusion with central banks on a regular basis and they defer to bankers on an array of economic decisions. Economic advisers to the US president almost always include high level central bankers who then cycle right back into the Federal Reserve.

Central banks and their private international counterparts are in control, political leaders are simply pawns. Whenever there’s a crash the public focuses on government while the central banks fade into the background and avoid all scrutiny.
